Lillian M Hi Lilian! this doesn't upset me at all. I'm glad you tried it out and did what felt comfortable for you. Admittedly, the first time I practiced kundalini yoga I found the chanting to be the MOST intimidating part of it. I wasn't comfortable expressing myself through sound. I was self conscious of having a "bad voice" and I also noticed every time I tried to chant, I would feel like I wanted to cry. Through further exploration and leaning into the "resistance/& discomfort" with chanting through my practice, I realized I had a very "closed off " throat chakra and leaning into the discomfort and unfamiliarity with chanting was actually very medicinal for me an it assisted me with strengthening my voice and my confidence. Now using my voice through chanting feels very therapeutic and expressive. Keep me posted!
