Expressing through the Body
All about Embodiment
You shape the world around you, using your voice. And feeling the embodied expression of your voice.
With what you say and how you say it, you impact how others feel. And you create their perception of you. So the big question is: do other people see you in the same way that you see yourself? Or is your voice, and the way you use it, blocking that?
I see this ALL the time with my voice empowerment clients. They come to me, wanting to use their voice in certain situations, wanting to feel the embodiment of what they’re saying, to have a specific impact – professionally or privately – on that situation. Sometimes it’s for a presentation at work. Other times it’s for how they speak to their clients, or their colleagues, or their partner…. But no matter who they are, no matter what the situation, it’s ALWAYS the same.
How you feel and what you think shapes your voice, the way you sound and the impact you have on others…
Learn to Embody Empowering Emotions
So what can you do with this information? Learn to channel the emotional state of the vibe you want to have in a specific situation. If you want to be more confident when giving a presentation, you need to connect to the essence of confidence in you. Embody that, and then let your voice out from that state of confidence and embodiment. Or if you’re a coach or teacher, and you want your clients to feel motivated during your session, then learn to embody the essence of motivation.
It’s about embodying the state first because your posture and the way you move in your body directly impacts your feelings. And your feelings directly impact the way you sound.

My Tip for You
- Choose an emotion or an idea that you want to use to impact a situation. It should be how you want others to feel in your presence. (ie: inspired, motivated, playful, calm…)
- Once you have it, stand up and walk around the room. Begin to embody this emotion or idea by moving your body AS it. (ie: how do you move when you are motivated, playful or calm…)
- Do this for 2 full minutes. Give yourself time to really feel this state in you.
- Keep moving whilst repeating the word yes. Let the way your body feels as this emotion or idea be fuel for your voice. Let your voice out from that energy.
- Now repeat the word no whilst still moving.
- Now repeat the sentence, “It’s all about my vibe!” whilst still moving. Do this for 2 full minutes.
- Slowly come to standing still. Close your eyes if you wish, and be present to this experience.
Through learning to fully inhabit our physical body, by embracing our senses, and by accepting our emotional state, rather than resisting it, we learn to living fully in the present. It’s a practice that involves feeling grounded in our bodies by choosing to completely BE in our bodies. Through anchoring ourselves consciously through our roots into the earth and by using breath awareness to help guide us back within ourselves, we learn to become more and more comfortable in our physicality.
For our voice, when we can be in our body, feeling into our physical form and the sensations, we have the chance to share our authentic expression with the world. A part of that involves experiencing the emotional state that we’ve in, or that we choose to connect to, and verbalising from that space. We essentially channel emotion, using it as fuel for the voice.
This practice involves letting go of the judgements we hold about “how we sound” or “who we should be.” It involves allowing ourselves to be as we are, now, and speaking from this space. This is authenticity – verbalising and expressing our truth in the now.
By doing so, you’ll unlock the true power of embodiment and live your life in a way that is light, joyful, and deeply fulfilling.

“This work was amazing! Kirbanu taught me to let my whole voice out!”
Diana, GermanyAuthor & Psychologist, Germany
“Kirbanu has been with me for 6 months now and a lot has happened in different areas of my life, because the voice also represents so many beliefs, topics and wounds in us... Our self-expression, lived out freely and safely, opens up many doors and gives us a whole new quality of life. I'm so grateful for this work!”
