How does the Way We Speak Influence Our Brain

Did you know the way we speak had an influence on our personality and our brain? Our 5 senses, sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch affects how we see the world and how we communicate with each other either in writing or speaking.

Since the way we think is reflected by the way we speak, thus if we train ourselves speak in a better and more complete manner, we are effectively and continuously changing the neural pathway of our brain. As a result, the way we think will change also.

For example, every culture on our planet has a different way of mindset and thus has a different way of communicating. This can be seen when people of different cultures speak the same language with an accent. Americans write in American English but someone from California speaks differently than someone from Massachusetts.  A person from England speaks and writes differently than someone from Australia. It is more prevalent when a person who speaks English as a second language. Someone from Japan has a totally different mindset than someone from Spain and thus may hinder their ability to express themselves when they use English to communicate with each other. All these differences have proven to develop different brainwaves and neural connections inside our brain.

It is important to not forget that our brain is something that works with sound, images, tastes, touch, smell. When we communicate, we always choose to narrow our internal reality to a single word. Let’s think back and count how many times you use the word “awesome”, “absolutely”, “sure”, “amazing”. They are a representation of different ideas that came across your mind when you communicate with other people.

With that being said, it is crucial to learn how to speak better by taking voice & speech lessons from a professional voice coach. Mylena of Inborn Voice has over 30 years of experience of teaching hundreds of students in the world to improve their voice and speaking ability using the unique Inborn Voice method.

Video Testimonial from Allan Dowds

Allan was one of my first students here in Boston. He is the founder of the Raja Style Yoga School in MarbleHead, MA. The combination of voice and Yoga is something as ancient as it is modern, that is, the ancients knew perfectly the importance of voice, while today everything is left to chance.

Here is the video testimony of Allan:


Leave a comment if he touched you!

Here’s the transcript of the testimony:

Hey, this is a video testimonial for my dear friend and voice guru: Mylena

Mylena is one of the sweetest, kindest, dearest, most intuitive people I have met in quite a while

just like an experienced piano tuner, when you’re the piano, she uses the quality, the character, the timber, the vibration of your voice to discern and detect any emotional or energetic discord or imbalance within you and then prescribes various physical and/or mental exercises to root out and address the cause of the imbalance.

In five sessions she’s made me a better yoga instructor.

Here’s the deal.

So I’m now more tuned into the energy behind my voice behind my thoughts and my words, then I was before which makes it easier to stop and perhaps, not actually say something that’s not yogic or say something in an emotionally charged manner that might not be yogic or helpful to a given situation

it’s easier for me to feel the sensation of the energy now that she’s pointed it out to me than it is to try and keep track of the words themselves or the thoughts themselves which sort of drone on one is a physical tangible sensation the other i have to pay attention to

so just saying in five sessions she’s made me a better yoga instructor

Speech for the Communication Skill Course 2017 at the UCSC

Good morning everyone!

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Milena Origgi. I work as a vocal coach in Boston (U.S.A) and I want to thank the University Cattolica and professor Roberta Virtuani for the opportunity to speak about the hidden powers of the human voice and its implications in this Communication Skills course.

Poor communication skills can result in missed opportunities in life as well as professional and personal frustration and failures. But the good news is good communication skills can be trained!

Probably some of you will feel uncomfortable because of the so-called “language barrier”, but right now by taking this course in English you are already bringing your communication skills to a new level! You can study a foreign language perfectly in class, even pass the Test Of English as a Foreign Language (T.O.E.F.L) with good results, yet, when the Voice takes over, in the real world, with real people, the game changes.

All you knowledge seems to vanish and you feel like you are no longer able to express your thoughts.

Everyone has experienced this difficulty in learning a new language but the same happens with all the others communication skills, even in your mother language! We are all capable of becoming a great communicator in any language just don’t take your vocal abilities for granted.

Everyone needs to learn!

Let’s analyze some technical prerequisites of verbal communication, so you can better understand what are your strengths and where you have to improve:

1) Sufficient intelligence and knowledge.

This sounds obvious but is not! We are the only beings able to communicate in a such complex manner! It takes us many years just to start speaking complete sentences and more than a decade to speak fluently! You have trained yourself in the art of communicating to the others what you feel inside, by trial and error, through observation and endless repetitions. If you think that speaking is simply pronouncing words in sequence you are oversimplifying!

The verbal communication is the topmost layer of a very complex reality!

You have learned a full set of unconscious communication skills the pre-verbal and if you want to develop fluency and mastery in the art of speaking, you must train to recognize and control all these aspects.

2) Suitable vocal apparatus.

The remarkable differences between our vocal apparatus and that of primates is not anatomical. What makes us different is our neurological capability to control the movements required to produce all the phonemes in the correct sequence and speed.
This activity has required years of training!

To master this skill you have to learn how to control your voice to make it sound colorful, expressive and able to transmit emotions!

3) Breath control abilities

We speak by controlling the flow of air in our vocal apparatus if we could not control our breathing we would not be able to speak!

What makes us different from other primates is again our neurological capability to control our breathing. And guess what? Also this has required a long training!

Your breathing is deeply related also with your emotions. While you speak, if you are not in control, you may be gasping for breath, flushing or even sweating!

All these factors will influence the outcome of your communication.

Don’t worry! Even these can be retrained!

4) Ability to listen and understand others

This is the last point, but it is in fact the most important one. Your voice has been trained through your ears, and almost all your communication skills are the direct result of the work of the mirror neurons during your childhood.

Now that you have reached maturity, your mirror neurons are overwhelmed by your fully developed mind and learning how to better use your voice require effort!

All these factors are the reason why you may find yourself in trouble when you have to speak or to listen.

A good preparation, like this course, is necessary in order to avoid unintended result. If you want to be a good leader, a brilliant communicator, you have first to get rid of all the counter productive skills you have already developed. This will be the most difficult part. Once sorted out the issues, you can substitute them easily with the appropriate skills.

This is just a glimpse of what is hidden inside the human voice.

Training is the key to achieve a good level of communication in your life.

Most of the time, when you don’t get the results you were expecting with your family, friends, loved ones or in the study and work environment it’s because you’re missing some voice skills!

My work experience has told me that where there are people not happy about their outcomes, there is always a lack of communication

Learning to use your voice more effectively will surely bring relief!

the success in your life and in your career is there waiting for you!

Everyone of us has unconsciously assimilated all the communication skills of their relatives and their role model

Every one of them is still present inside you with their voice.

You just have to identify, between so many, the only voice that was born with you, your Inborn Voice!

That’s why I have spent years of research on this topic and I have named my teaching method Inborn Voice.

Every one of you is precious and unique

Thank you all for your attention and feel free to contact me with your feedback!

Bye!
