Is it possible to translate between words and emotions?

Is it possible to translate between words and emotions?

The most common question I’m asked, either in person or via email, is “I don’t understand what Inborn Voice is,” or “What’s the difference between Inborn Voice and the traditional vocal Coaching?

The simplest and most understandable answer is “Try to believe”. In fact, it only takes one session to understand how effective and different the Inborn Voice method is from what we are used to.

You will all have heard or spoken languages such as Italian, French or Spanish. I could also make the comparison with languages further away from ours, such as Japanese, but I think it is appropriate to consider Spanish as is the most widely spoken language in the world.

The words we use to describe an object, a situation or an emotion are “containers”, more or less precise, of an idea that is born and lives inside us.

The main mistake is to think that these containers are “universal”, or rather, uniquely understandable. They’re not. If two people say the word “yellow”, it is practically impossible that they have the exact same idea of yellow inside them. The only possibility that two people mean the same idea of “yellow” is when they are confronted with an external object of a color that can be generically defined as “yellow”.

The second mistake is thinking that there is only one way to pronounce the word “yellow”. That is not so. For example, you can pronounce it with an intonation of joy, like that of someone who finds a golden nugget and shows it exulting “Yellow”, or with the intonation of someone who reads a bad grade on the report card, indicating the poor result written in “yellow”.

The third mistake is thinking that the structure of a sentence is the same for everyone. It’s not. Even when the words are the same, the intonation, pauses, breaths, speed and so much more change the sentence. The same sentence can have as many meanings as there are people who pronounce it. You only need to listen to a great actor recite a poem to understand the difference between his and your interpretation. Even if you were to copy it, it would be impossible for you to do so.

Why?

Because you lack the translation between the world of emotions and the world of voice. Knowing a foreign language firsthand, even with a good degree of mastery, it is really difficult to express a deep emotion or thought to others. On the contrary, for many people it is difficult, if not impossible, to do so already in their mother tongue. Many people take over half a century to understand this truth.

Ordering a pizza from a waiter is one thing, making a love declaration or having a job interview is another. Even knowing which words are the most appropriate to express a situation, the way they are pronounced will greatly influence how they are perceived by the other person. For example, you can use words of affection with a detached tone, words of encouragement with an angry tone, words of criticism with a smile. All messages that will be received, you can bet, in the wrong way. And don’t think this is limited to talking. The exact same thing can be applied to listening to others. How many times have you rejoiced at hearing words that actually just wanted to avoid sadness, how many times have you felt lost listening to words that actually wanted to soothe?

As you can read in my latest book “The Way of the Voice”, to explain to the world the power of the Inborn Voice, I emphasize very well that our Inborn Voice is a language more similar to music than traditional languages. A music that contains within a single note, every single emotion or thought, all the other notes. A sort of symphony where everything is always in harmony. To better understand this strange comparison, you need to know that some people can recognize the sound of a violin played live from a recording, just as there are people who can recognize if the recording is digital or analog, and even recognize the type of amplifier used. To an ordinary person that sound is just a musical instrument. The same thing happens in people who begin to understand their own Inborn Voice.

So ultimately, my Inborn Voice method aims to create something that doesn’t normally exist. Only a few, fortunate, people are able to understand and translate their emotions for others through voice. Using the voice is not only a matter of technique, but also of soul. Inborn Voice is the bridge that connects the technical aspect to the emotional aspect, enriching it with unimaginable nuances.

Certainly technique is important, but not as important as expressiveness. In fact, many famous artists, whether actors, singers or voice actors, although they have an enormous ability to communicate with their audience, do not have the technical mastery of their voice.

So the next time you find yourself thinking that your problems of work, socialization or sentimental problems could find a better voice, don’t look for the “technical” solution, the one guided by the mind, but the “human” solution, the one guided by your heart.

Finally, I invite you to read my free ebook, “The Art of Keeping an Healthy Voice”, because even those who claim to know and teach the “vocal technique” in reality often have no idea how much damage they can create in others’ voice.

Mylena Vocal Coach Interview by Oltre

Mylena Interview by Oltre

Mylena Vocal Coach today has got the cover and two-page interview on the weekly issue of the magazine Oltre, published by La Prealpina. The interview il finally more related to the quantum and vibration level of the Inborn Voice training method and not only the “traditional one”.

Here is the full article, translated for you from the La Prealpina website:

“Inborn Voice!” – Learn how to make your voice speak out!

Say goodbye to those boring, dull, graceless voices. We                                     can work on ourselves and set our voices free. And have                                    a charming and truthful voice. There is now hope for everyone: it is a reality to be able to speak and be heard by seeing people hanging from our lips. Yes, because let’s face it, we all want to have a lovely voice.
It’s not a fashion, but by now the trend is clear: it’s to exploit the real “voice power”. Who knows what’s the secret behind the incredible power of the sound of the human voice and how to use it. t: Mylena Origgi is absolutely sure to help everyone. She became known as The Voice Guru worldwide and she specializes in teaching how to get your real voice out. And give confidence, because there are no bad voices.
Her method, which literally drives the United States crazy, and not only them, is called Inborn Voice (inbornvoice.com), which translates into finding our true voice, the one we had at birth.
Origgi, who is currently in Europe and on Sunday, December 1, is in Milan for a workshop before returning to Boston where she now lives permanently, teaches and writes books, the last one is The Way of the Voice.
The secret of her success? It starts from her own voice. For those who do not understand either singing or quantum vibration, the concept is much simpler and more intuitive. “For me the voice is made up of vibrations that bring a different quantum frequency. It’s a resonance of vibrations with people – explains the Voice Guru -. I’m not talking about the colors of the voice, for me it’s about expressing our soul”.
Pure energy that vibrates and passes through people, hitting them in depth, in the most instinctive and non-rational areas of the human being. “My work consists in knowing the most intimate voice, through new energy, like the choice of a dress. Many times we hear complaining “I don’t like my voice”: my message is positive because it can be improved in an unlimited way, with the power you want depending on the time you dedicate”.
It’s a journey that has been and still is a huge success in the United States, everyone turns to the Voice Guru, from TV presenters to singers to show business personalities. “In Boston are the university professors who come to me because their career also depends on the voice that influences the way they teach: a teacher with a boring voice will have students with less success at the exams. And so it’s a necessity instead to make people learn successfully. A captivating voice is also reflected in the student’s success.
The voice now reflects the success and status of a person, but on condition that you respect a rule. “It must be true, authentic – underlines Mylena -. You cannot cheat or act, no fake. A theme very dear at this time to the world of information but also to the Anglo-Saxon world. Everything that is fake is not welcome, there is a need for authenticity and truth. That’s why Inborn voice works because my talent is to bring out who we are through the voice, maybe it’s a philosophical way but you have to start from ourselves, for me it has to do with a divine dimension to find a positive spiral. We need authenticity and trust: speaking with our own voice allows us to be genuine”.
There are also considerable benefits at the psychophysical level: “The vibrations always reach us: we think of a butterfly that flies away fast. Here, even the voice reaches the deep part and settles in the body and you realign”. So forget about vocals, exercises ba-ba-ba-ba ma-ma-ma, this is a method to find the voice: “Listen and listen to yourself, finding a connection with yourself. For me there are mantra words that each of us has and repeating them helps, then there are words that block us repulsive. My talent is recognizing them by talking and working with people, working on self-esteem while everyone destroys it. And it seems to work, as thousands of people turn to Mylena. Even here in Italy: from Giovanni Scialpi to actor Dino Spinella and the Youtuber Daniel Marangiolo of IPantellas.

432Hz tuning and Inborn Voice, what you need to know

432Hz tuning and Inborn Voice, what you need to know

Today it seems to be very trendy the idea that inside the music, whatever it is, there is some sort of “hidden message”. They talk about conspiracies and tuning systems.  Specifically, they want to emphasize how modern tuning of musical instruments is done through the reference note A at 440Hz and no longer the A 432Hz.

I would like to try to address this topic by giving a different point of view, related to what I call Inborn Voice, our native vibration. There is no doubt that listening to “suitable” music can stimulate some emotional states in humans, animals and indeed plants. There exist music suitable for sleep, such as lullaby, for meditation, but also to promote athletic performance and even for aggressiveness. Every state of consciousness can be influenced in some way by music. This effect has been known for centuries and is a resonance one. Listening to a slow rhythm music, one induces a slowing down of everything, then a state of relaxation, listening to upbeat music, one stimulates the movement, the action. As I said, it’s a resonance. Resonance is a phenomenon related to frequency, I explained it very well in my book “The Way of the Voice“. 

Few people are aware that the opposite phenomenon is also true. In fact, resonance is a reflexive phenomenon. That is, if you want to remain quiet, if you want to get to sleep, a lively music will bother you and you will cover your ears. Vice versa, if you impose yourself to be punchy, you prepare yourself for a competitive performance, a melodious music will give you on your nerves. That’s because everything in the universe resonates. If we leave a guitar or a piano immersed in a concert hall, these instruments will start to resonate, to vibrate, without anyone touching them or playing them. 

It should not be forgotten that even the rhythm of a music is a frequency, clearly much lower than that of the music notes. In fact, if a musical note vibrates hundreds of times per second, the rhythm of a music vibrates a hundred times per minute. A big difference!

Everything around us, even what appears to be solid rock, is matter in vibration. Everything that exists, even what cannot be seen, is matter in vibration. Quantum physics clearly explains why. So the human being is composed of matter in vibration, the earth on which we live is matter in vibration. Now why should we worry about the vibration of a music that we listen to when we are immersed in a world of vibrations? Is an external vibration able to alter something of the human being? If the instruments are tuned to 440 or 432Hz do things change? All interesting questions, and of course things change, but not as much as you think. A melodious music will remain a melodious music, a lively music will remain a lively music.

The important thing to note is another. An incontrovertible fact. The musical rhythm is accelerating. The melodies of the 19th century are slower than those of the 20th. The same applies to those of the new millennium and those of recent years. The rhythm, the cadence is always higher. 

This phenomenon is much more interesting and evident than the one related to tuning, yet few people talk about it. 

Now I will try to make a rather complex speech that takes into account biology and quantum physics, to make it clear that if there is something that perceives or undergoes a vibration, it is not the brain. I argue that our vibration-sensitive part is our Inborn Voice. If you’re interested in more in-depth discussion, you’ll find a reading of my book “The Way of the Voice”, which is extremely interesting.

Often those who speak of these conspiracy theories indicate the idea that the human brain is a kind of biological machine that operates on the basis of “electromagnetic waves”, often bringing the electroencephalograms to support. Since music is also an electromagnetic wave, here’s the story. The argument itself is not wrong, in fact the human brain operates through electric currents and it is normal that these currents create magnetic fields that can be captured and interpreted as “waves”. But this is quite different from the claim that our brain operates through electromagnetic waves. Reality is quite different. 

The electromagnetic waves that occur are a consequence of its operation, not its mode of operation. It is not clear at which level our brain operates, probably at quantum level, unitary, but now is not the time to clarify it.

Our neurons don’t operate by modulating an electrical signal, creating “waves”. They are much more like an electric light bulb. That is, they have a “on” and a “off” state. What they produce, from a technical point of view, is called a “square wave”. It is fascinating to know that the square wave is defined as containing “all the existing harmonics”. It is something similar to computer electronics. Zero and One. Just to make you better understand, if a plug stings our finger, the neuron of our nervous system can transmit the information to the brain only by communicating “on- something causes a stimulus”. You may wonder, then, how does it communicate to the brain when a plug is not very painful and when it is very painful? Simple, by varying the frequency with which it is turned on/off. If the pain is little it will send an intermittent signal, for example one per second, if the pain is strong 100 signals per second. So our brain is also a sort of “resonator”. If one signal arrives per second maybe it doesn’t even consider the pain, if 100 arrive per second, it will immediately take action to avoid it.

Understanding that the brain does not operate on the basis of electromagnetic waves, but is composed of matter which therefore itself vibrates, the effect of an external vibration will not be so different from the one present in the rest of our body.

At this point we must also understand how resonance works. If it is true that all that exists is matter in vibration, how can resonance work? Let’s try to explain it with an example. If I am a crystal glass, because I am composed of matter, I always and continuously vibrate. The fact that the human being does not perceive it does not mean that it is not true. Now if I put the glass on a table that in turn is composed of matter in vibration, what happens?. Since the two materials are in contact, they should influence each other. Probably this happens, but the forces expressed by the individual atoms are so low that nothing changes. If someone pulls a punch on the table, it will transmit the force received to everything that is in contact, then also the floor and the glass. Looking closely, we would see the glass moving imperceptibly. If someone drummed on the table, creating a frequency, we would see the glass vibrate more steadily. If the frequency with which the table is drummed is in sync with the one with which the glass resonates, it will amplify and even destroy the integrity of the glass itself. If it is not in sync, it will disperse. 

So far it is clear that for there to be an effect between two vibrations, that of drumming and that of the glass, a force must be of a certain magnitude.

If in the same situation as before, we introduce a second drumming, much stronger and more intense than the first, which of the two will tweak the glass? Clearly to both, but the strongest will be the master. So when we talk about resonance, we are talking about the law of the strongest. Today, headphones with “cancellation” of noise are in vogue. They do nothing but reproduce a sound that is “opposite” to what we are listening to. The sound wave of “noise” and that of “cancellation” add up and in fact we are no longer able to listen to anything. Two opposite sounds are not perceptible to us, and yet they both exist. Now that you have a slight idea of how a resonance works, we can go further.

The human being has always carried within himself the concept of vibration, even before this word existed. As I explain in my book the easiest way to define a vibration, when the word vibration did not exist, was to refer to the voice. We always talk about voice, words, silence and sound. So it is evident that something inside of us actually vibrates, or rather, wants to vibrate. What is it? Our Inborn Voice. Each of us has a different, unique one. There are no two of them that are the same. People simply forget to listen to their Inborn Voice and prefer to listen to the vibrations that come from outside, simply by ignoring it. They ignore it so well and for so long that they forget they have it, and then fall victim to the vibrations of others, like empty glasses.

The choice, the word “choice” is the key. The choice that most people take is to ignore and not listen to their Inborn Voice, turning from a musical instrument that can bring their music in the world, into a resonator, ready to vibrate on the music imposed by others. Each of us can go back to listening and making others play our own inborn voice, just do an act of will.

Now you can understand why when so many people are together many amazing things happen, sometimes deplorable, but still of great magnitude.

For example, if a group of people decide to pray all together, the sum of their individual vibrations amplifies the outcome and it will influence even those who are not praying, leading to the reduction of crime in a fairly large area. In practice, all the people who don’t listen to their Inborn Voice, will start to resonate on a vibration of peace.

The same thing happens when you put together so many “angry” or “frustrated” people, even if they are not praying, but simply demonstrating or protesting, their dominant vibration of anger and frustration is amplified by going to create real human monsters in someone of the crowd.

The interesting thing is that this doesn’t always happen. When so many people are all together, each one intent on developing its own selfishness, the amplification effect does not trigger. In fact, in this case, the vibrations that are added together do not manage to overwhelm the general background noise present. Selfishness is not a vibration suitable for man.

So from this point of view it is much more interesting to go and see, in addition to the continuous growth of the musical rhythm, also the increasing use of technologies put us in silence, both verbally and cerebrally.

If you are interested in the subject or you want more details about my work and your Inborn Voice, you can leave a comment or buy my book.

When is it best to stay silent and when is it best to speak?

When is it best to stay silent and when is it best to speak?

The human being has been granted the incredible super power of free will, that is, he/she can always choose between a number of possibilities to act. As always, great power carries great responsibilities. 

One of the daily decisions that people make all the time is whether to speak or remain silent. Clearly, when one decides to speak, then one must also decide what to say, when one decides to be silent, then one must also willingly accept all the implications.

This topic is so important that practically all the greatest thinkers have been attributed some aphorism about it. For example, Oscar Wilde was famous for his “Sometimes it’s better to be silent and look stupid than to open your mouth and remove any doubt“, Blaise Pascal for his “In love a silence is worth more than a speech“, but my favorite is Jean Paul Sartre’s “Every word has consequences. Every silence as well.

In my thirty years of Vocal Coach experience I have helped people who were basically silent give voice to their emotions and people who were a little too chatty to listen to their emotions. In my book The Way of the Voice I frequently mention Silence: if you stop to listen to it properly, it’s anything but lacking in interest or musicality. So true is when Miles Davis used to say “The real music is silence. All the notes just frame it“.

So how do you understand when it’s best to be silent and when it’s necessary to talk, for unpleasant that these two situations can be?

Those who know me are well aware that there can be no “standard” answers, which are good for everyone, but I can reassure you: there is a simple marker that can help you to understand what choice should be made. Since in verbal communication, as in all other human relationships, there is rarely a second opportunity to speak, explain or express oneself. It is therefore essential to learn this subtle “art” a little at a time, also thanks to my support as a Vocal Coach. 

This miraculous marker that can help you in this Hamlet decision is yourself and your Inborn Voice. Saying that seems so simple, but in reality only we can know, instinctively and unconsciously, why we choose whether to speak or not. The motivations provided by our logic may be the most disparate, but I am referring to motivations that respond to a different state of consciousness, namely they come from emotions. Sometimes we speak only to clarify a thought to ourselves, others to fill the silence. Sometimes you are silent because you fear the consequences of the spoken words, others to savor the intensity of a moment.

As I said before, whatever the choice, there will be consequences. And even if our logical side doesn’t care about the consequences, they will happen anyway and will influence the emotional side. 

Most of the people I help have an impairment of their capacity to communicate their thoughts to others because they fear a negative emotion related to a specific type of consequence. Yet if we remain silent or fill the silence with circumstantial phrases or speeches for nothing, other consequences will fall into our lives. There is no way of knowing if the consequences of one choice will be worse than the other. 

For example, if you choose to speak, perhaps to convince a loved one of your idea, you risk to crack your relationship forever. If you choose to be silent to avoid breaking the relationship, you risk keeping something inside that will gradually consume you from within. No choice is simple, you have to learn to listen to yourself and your inner silence to be able to make the best one. In fact, not all evils come to harm, sometimes the most feared consequences are precisely those that can make a change in your existence.

So, ultimately, the best advice I can give you is to be selfish and to choose thinking with your own mind and listening to your own Inborn Voice.

The only tip you need to help you make any important decision

The only tip you need to help you make any important decision

Every day, each human being makes hundreds of decisions. If you are reading these few lines is because of a decision, perhaps related to chance, but still a choice. Yes, many decisions are now unaware, they have become part of a sort of autopilot, but nevertheless everything we do, even “do nothing”, brush your teeth or move your body is the result of one of our decisions.

If this has captured your interest, you will now be curious how your Voice, or rather my work as a Vocal Coach, can help you in making a decision. This is the deepest part of my Vocal Coach work, the one that made me known as Voice Guru all over the world: don’t be amazed if it’s the first time ever you’ve heard of it.

Our whole existence is a continuous series of decisions.
And every choice has consequences and future decisions.

Now I will try to explain how our voice is actually closely related to each decision. It’s not a complex idea, you’ll guess it easily.

You have probably already heard of “free will” and you have an idea of what it means. But are you really sure that you have fully understood it?
Free will it’s an idea that comes from the latin “libero arbitrio” that actually means “being pleased with the decision“. 

It doesn’t mean at all “to have the ability to choose whatever you want”, but “to have the opportunity to be pleased with whatever you want”. At the very least, the concept could be interpreted as “having the possibility to choose what we like”. 

In fact, the very idea of making a choice is excluded from the idea of the decision making process, in fact, whatever choice is made, it will always be possible to be pleased with its consequences. If we want to force the use of a word that I do not like, every decision is the right one for us.

Before understanding further, it is also good to investigate the meaning of the word “decide”. De- is a prefix that usually means ” to remove, to eliminate “, a close relative of Dis-. The remaining part of the word originates from the Latin verb Cidere, which means “to cut away”. Now it is not my intention to bore you with the origin of the words, but just think of deciduous trees, those that lose their leaves in the winter months, to remind you of very similar to “decide”. The origin of the two words is the same. So De-Cide literally means Eliminate what can be cut off.

Therefore, in order to make a decision, it is essentially necessary to know what can be eliminated and what must be kept. Also the word “choose” has a meaning related to the idea of “liking” something instead of selection among two or more possibilities.

All of this is about voice. It is very simple once you understand the wonderful purpose it embodies. Our voice is the only means by which we can really and intimately judge and understand whether or not we really like something

A simple idea that may seem difficult to put into practice, but if this brief explanation made you guess a light, a little guru, at the end of a tunnel then you were given the opportunity to understand it further.

You will have the opportunity to deepen this aspect of my work by reading my Vocal Coaching blog, my latest book “The Way of the Voice“, participating in specific workshops that I created (the series “Identity and the Voice“), or with a personalized online vocal coaching training.
