108. The Power of Your Voice: Developing Your Own Unique Soul Signature and Frequency for Improved Expression and Transformation with Holistic Voice Coach, Ruth Ratliff

Have you ever noticed how your voice changes with your emotions?

The voice is a direct expression of your inner state. It carries rich information about your psychological, hormonal and physical circumstances. Sound is also the first sense humans experience in utero with the early development of the inner ear.

In fact, many ancient texts have placed sound as the foundation for material existence. Universally, the sound “OM” is the seed syllable for all of life. Sound is critical for human functioning, awareness, sensory input and output. The way you use it (or don’t!) will directly affect yourself and those around you.

My guest today, Ruth Ratliff, is a wise and brilliant holistic voice teacher and Licensed Vibrational Sound Therapy Practitioner with over 40 years of experience as a voice professional. She learned to harness the power of her voice at a young age when personal tragedy led her to the profoundly healing medium of sound. She understands how people’s voices reflect how they feel about themselves, and believes that the voice has the potential to offer us a much deeper experience of our inner landscape.

In this episode, Ruth guides us through an amazing journey to help us understand the powerful and constantly available tool of sound for effective, heart-centered communication and connection. Together, we discuss the significance of the intention behind your voice, tips for optimizing the impact of virtual sound healing, the value of recharging your sense of wonder each morning, the effect of menopause on the vocal chords and how to work through the common issue of disliking the sound of your own voice. Ruth also shares practical tips for developing a powerful, embodied voice and how to practice deep listening to expand your consciousness.

Ruth is an incredible resource for holistic healing and I highly encourage you to check out her published book, The Voice of Women’s Wisdom: An exploration into the expressive, creative and healing powers of your sound and to explore her rich offerings at!
