Prana is the energy of life force. In yoga, asana breathing generates prana. The energy of prana is life sustaining. It is the breath of life. It is your first and last action. In shamanism we learn that breath is your greatest gift.
Breathe into trouble spots. Unlike playing a woodwind or brass instrument, string instruments do not require breath to produce sound. However, breath is not only nourishing for the body but also nourishing for music. If you are not sure how to start, try singing through your music. You will form a deeper connection with the music and resolve technical and interpretation issues.
Mandalas resonate spiritual energy. Meditate on this mandala or another one that speaks to you. You can even create your own. Quiet your mind, sing, and let your music flow. Breathe the life force of prana into your music.
