According to Melissa Hurt, humming is one of the most therapeutic practices one can do for daily wellness. The reason being that breath, voice, body and spirit are all connected when humming our daily dose of wellbeing.
However, there is a clear distinction between humming and singing. Or is there?
What would an angry Humm sound like?
A happy Humm?
A sad Humm?
A worried Humm?
Could humming portray what feelings sound like?
I think there is much more to humming than what meets the ear. Maybe if we want to know what our own feelings sound like, we should start experimenting with our inner voices – through humming. And if we want to know what other people’s feelings sound like, we could start with those in our immediate circle of family and friends. Becoming aware of producing different pitch levels of humming: humming in a higher range and humming in a lower range. Adjusting the volume of our humming. Loud humming. Soft humming. In-between humming.
I cannot help to wonder how letting it all out through humming might influence what we are already feeling inside. Creating an awareness of expressing how we feel in’ to how we show out through the unique sounds of humming.
