Untethering Your Voice with Shamanic Chants & Ecstatic Songs.

Releasing Your Spirit's Song.

Throughout history, chanting has been used to induce altered states of consciousness, promote healing, and as an individual spiritual practice. Regardless of which practice is used, there is a common thread—to transcend ordinary reality and connect with the divine.

Today, many people seeking a deeper spiritual experience yearn to connect with their voice for this very reason. What’s beautiful about engaging your Spirit’s song is that it is about what feels right for you. Here are a few of the most common ways known.

Spiritual Songs

One of the most common practices and most accepted are spiritual songs. Visit any church, and you will hear congregations singing. In fact, you may have experienced it yourself. Spiritual singing is a practice that’s been around for centuries. From the Gregorian Chants of Christian monastics to the Bhajans of Hindu kirtans, the act of group singing dates back centuries. Singing in groups for spiritual adoration was never about performance. Rather, it was and is a conduit for connection with the divine, with yourself, and with community. It’s a special space you enter into to tap into the divine.


This practice is confusing to many people outside of mainstream Pentecostal and Charismatic churches. For congregants of these churches, speaking in tongues is a “spiritual gift.” It’s a fulfillment of prophecy and a New Testament Miracle. “Acts 3-4: And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

“Although “speaking in tongues” is a foundation of these churches, its history dates back thousands of years to pagan religions and is widely used as a shamanic tool.


Shamans use their rhythmic songs to induce a state of trance in their journeys. The rhythm and vibration of the chants help them move from ordinary to non-ordinary realities. When the Shaman chants, a spiritual vision opens to provide insight for healing, dispelling negative energies, and connecting with ancestors or spirit guides. 

Shamans also use their songs for community ceremonies and rituals to heal lands or provide blessings. The shaman’s song is typically accompanied by rattling, drumming, or dancing.

You’ll find shamanic chanting through indigenous and pagan communities all over the world. Many Western shamanic practitioners use this form of chanting in their private practices. 

Untethering Your Voice

Regardless of the path, these practices are easy and share one common thread—a deeper connection with Spirit. Each practice embodies the belief that the human voice can open portals to unseen realms, facilitate healing, and alter consciousness.

Through these practices, we can see how we have an intense desire to connect to something greater than ourselves. Today, there is a growing recognition of the spiritual significance of the voice as a gateway to the divine. This resurgence speaks to a collective desire to deepen our spiritual practice.

The untethered voice offers routes to explore the mysteries of the soul, the universe, and the interconnectedness of all life. By engaging your voice, you’re able to partake in a timeless journey of discovery, healing, and spiritual awakening.

My Christian Roots

Speaking in tongues is how I began my journey with spiritual singing. I, however, was not in church with a group of people; I was ten years old, and I was in my bedroom saying my prayers when I “got the Holy Ghost.” I went screaming to my mother, not knowing what was happening. And since then, I’ve been blessed with this practice.
