According to Tucker, we all come into this world with a song, our true self, our soul. "We each have a personal vibration or frequency that is a combination of the contracted and expanded frequencies of our bodies, emotions and thoughts at any given time," she says.
Tucker explains that from a scientific perspective, our bodies are made up of 75% water, so we are a natural resonator for sound. "Our bodies are like tuning forks. When one tuning fork is struck, the other will resonate with the frequency of the first and sound as well. Our vibration also changes throughout the day according to what we think, feel and do. So when we say, 'I resonate with him,' or 'something strikes a chord' we are stating a fact."
Tucker maintains that from an early age we are pressured to conform or become in sync with family and societal expectations. "Of course these people usually want the best for us and want us to conform to what they believe is the right way to live. But sometimes when we are not strongly connected to our song we have to work at hearing and singing it again."
SCENE asked Tucker what people can do to rediscover their own song:
1. A belief in our dominant Western culture is that happiness and fulfillment come from outside of us in the form of things. This of course supports the pockets of the companies who produce things that we are told we need, but it doesn't necessarily serve us.
So in order to truly connect to our song or our true self, we have to move into silence. We have to move from the external world to our inner terrain. This means moving from thinking, to awareness and being.
The more time that we spend in silence through a contemplative practice such as meditation, tai chi, yoga, or walking, the more we begin to metaphorically and literally resonate with our song or true self.
2. Through regular contemplative practice, what we discover behind all of the noise and chatter is our essence, our true self, which is far greater than our ego. We also discover that we are not our thoughts or our emotions, which create our story. We realize that we are not the roles that have been ascribed to us such as mother, friend, leader, etc. We are much more than our ego, roles or our story. We are pure consciousness - pure beingness.
3. The more that we live in and are aware of our home frequency or song, the more easily we can recognize when we are becoming in sync with the song of other people, places or events.
For example I now have to intentionally imagine unplugging myself from the energy of a shopping mall before arriving, which has made a huge difference for me. Instead I remain rooted in my home frequency and do not become in sync with the frequencies around me. This in itself is a practice in mindfulness.
