Allow whatever is there to become sound.
I once heard a story from native Americans:
“Everyone has a song for each moment of their life. You just need to connect with your intimate being and allow whatever is there to become sound.”
This explains very well what chanting means to me. The need for self-expression has been always present in my life, and singing has forever been a way for me to do so.
As a little girl, I sang for my teachers and relatives. In my late teens, I sang from trapeze bars across Barcelona. And as an adult, singing was what I enjoyed most as an actress.
