Voicing from the Heart
The Mysticism of Inditing
Words and Music
Words do not teach us much, and at times they can be cumbersome. Most of us know of the chatter and clutter that can overwhelm us or prevent us from sensing ourselves, truly and wholly, in wholeness of selfhood. Nonetheless, when we sense a vibrational match between what we are experiencing, how life is arising in us, and the information coming towards us, then words can help us frame our experience, utterly transform us and transport us elsewhere. Let me share a personal experience of the kind.
One early morning, still in bed, I was listening to music with my air pods firmly riveted in my ears and my eyes closed. The music was Handel’s Coronation Anthem N° 4. My Heart Is Inditing: exquisite and uplifting. As I listened to the words, I first heard, “My heart is inviting”. I could feel the flutter in my own heart, a compelling call, and a quieter voice telling me to check the correct verb-form. This was my first encounter with the specific energetic signature of inditing, a crucial turning point in my odyssey with wholeness which impacted my unravelling of the pathways to selfhood.
The Heart’s Song
Inditing is an old biblical verb, an antiquated expression, which basically means to speak from the heart. The lyrics of Handel’s anthem come from Psalm 45:1,10,12 and Isaiah 49:23.
My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. (Psalm 45:1 – KJV)
The verb ‘to indite’ means to express or to describe in literary or formal expression, in others words to compose and to put down in writing. It comes from the Latin indicere meaning, “to make known formally”. It should not be confused with the verb ‘to indict’, a judicial term which means to formally accuse somebody of something.
Discovering that there is actually a verb that describes speaking from the heart has been a life-changing moment for me, the Eureka moment, when I experienced an almost perfect vibrational match between the lyrics, “My heart is inditing”, and the purpose of my work with words and music, writing and singing the odyssey with wholeness. Needless to add that it has powerfully fashioned my work ever since.
The Power of Inditing
I recognise inditing as a form of storytelling where we string together facts and events and allow the life-giving purpose woven into the story to reveal itself. It beckons us to allow the deeper meaning in words to breathe into us, to animate us, to ignite us. We are to be infilled, instilled, indwelled, infused, imbued, all verbs with the prefix -in, as is the case with inditing. The use of the prefix –in indicates that something transformative is about to occur within. Furthermore, it suggests that deep inner work will release the potency of our sovereign creatorship dwelling in our heart centre and emanating from our sovereign selfhood
We indite by combining different voices carried through words, sounds, colours, textures and all other forms of artistic expressions known to us. The larger invitation is to return to the basics, the essence of what is in origin, so as to tap into source-based and heart-centred frequencies, attune to their energetic signature, and become living and fully conscious higher-vibrational expressions of life.
Inditing is beneficial for learning to move in and out, back and forth, and across the liminal spaces we encounter and visit. It not only takes us to our spiritual edges, the edge on the inside, the rim between what we think is us and what is not us, the places where we need to be stretched and where everything converges, it also supports us in standing in the prophetic position, and staying there. Here, we learn to live precariously with paradoxical perspectives, to hold them tightly in our heart, whilst loving the necessary creative tension, until the energy summoned propels us further along the path of non-dual consciousness towards wholeness and oneness.
Inditing is the conduit that enables us to access a vast repertoire of knowledge, wisdom and artistic expression, all held in the collective psyche. As we pursue our work of becoming fully human, it offers a passageway towards the unified field of consciousness of which each one of us is a shard of light, an expression of the divine. Inditing is a portal transporting us to our True Selves in wholeness, our sovereign selfhood, and what we intuit as being of absolute validity, the undiscussable Truth.
However the absolute truth is represented, it does not need our perfect understanding. All our words, worldviews and rituals are the equivalent of children happily playing before the infinite mystery and the wonderment of life. Our search for the ultimate truth, at any age, in any culture, whatever the language, the symbol, the icon, the imagery, and the rituals and ceremony will always point us into the same direction: more love, more connectedness, unfolding in ever-widening circles, consciousness unfolding unto itself in fractal motifs. Inditing is the playing field offered to us for giving voice to the beauty and the love swelling in our heart.
My personal version of inditement blends words and music, a virtuosity in wordsmithing and chanting. Like an enthusiastic child who has just discovered a new exciting game, I am eager to dive into the emerging soundscapes and to learn more about the art and the mysticism of inditing. As a starter, I have decided to host a two-hour online workshop, from 18.00 to 20.00 (CET), every third Saturday of the month.
The format is simple: 2 hours every month. The intention is clear: reclaiming the art of inditement and developing our capacities for voicing the truths that dwell in our heart. The order of service will surface as we journey. The approach is necessarily experimental. It invites me to surrender to a higher will so that I may become of service to the practice of inditing and lead you into a world of outstanding beauty and all-encompassing love.
Deep down, I know that the experience will be nourishing and replenishing. We will bathe in sounds and resonances, words and lyrics, colours and shades, shapes and forms, textures and grains. These will tantalise our senses and arouse our sensory faculties, draw forth our feelings and crystalise our thoughts so that our hearts may indite something of matter.
I am particularly interested in working with different languages and will be inviting participants to work in their native language, the language of the heart, the language we inhabit and dwell in. Conversely, we can explore the frequencies of different languages, like different musical instruments, to sense and savour where there is more resonance, more bittersweet desire, deeper yearning, in other words where love expresses itself with fierce intensity and passion.
