Right Tone (of Voice)
by Donna Rose Stewart

If I may speak from the standpoint of one who is highly sensitive to tone and to how people feel and react: I am a highly sensitive person with empath energies, who is also a singer and a voice teacher. I have spent most of my life trying to say just the right thing at the right time - trying so very hard not to hurt anyone's feelings or sensibilities. And from someone who used to feel that I couldn't handle criticism, I discovered one day that what I hadn't been able to handle was the energy behind the criticism. When the criticism was Truth and coming from Love, it didn't hurt at all - it was a welcome relief! And with this in mind, I feel that the right tone works on every occasion, because there is a right tone for everything: be it love, anger - righteous anger, of course :-), healing, transformation, etc. There is a right tone for Truth, for cutting through.

In teaching, I have learned that I need to be able to say the same thing in a hundred different ways to a hundred different people, and that it is not something that I can plan or think about ahead of time. This process has taught me to trust myself more.

I have learned over the years, that no one had a problem to what I said if I didn't have a problem with it. When I expressed something that I was nervous or unsure about, people would react negatively. I could say the very same thing at a later time when I was resolved within myself and no one would have a problem with it. It was most amazing to me at first.

What we must do is be perceptive of whether or not a person wants to hear what we have to say and, if they do, how much of it they can handle. I've learned that I can be talking to someone and they may have asked about what I am saying, and then all of a sudden, they seem "to check out" or "leave their bodies" - they just can't take any more in; and it's time for me to stop talking.

My business is to simply listen, observe, do and say what feels right, and the rest is between God and that person. What that person does with what I have shared is none of my business. The outcome is none of my business - that is God's business.
