I picked up my new instrument at the weekend. A handpan. It is the most beautiful and exquisite thing ever!
As I sat to play for the very first time, I noticed I was getting more and more agitated.
Trying to keep the beat. Aiming to hit certain notes and missing.
I was getting in my own way.
Then Paula came in the room and we started to chat. All of a sudden I could play the tune I was aiming to play, note perfect, holding the timing beautifully.
The minute I got out of the way, I played from my heart. Not my head.
I let go. I surrendered.
Here is the link to an article I wrote recently about letting go and surrendering.
It was picked up by leading mainstream magazines and online newspapers.
Letting go and surrendering made a huge difference in my moment of learning. Check out this article and see for yourself!
