Ah, the wonders of meditation! Rapper Santigold cured her case of writer's block with meds...itation, that is!
Santi said that TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek informed her that meditation might help her overcome her block and gain confidence. She told The Scotsman: "All of a sudden I was the most confident person in the world." She learned the practice from Nancy Cook De Herrera, who worked as the publicist for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960s and introduced the guru to The Beatles, according to NME.com.
Santi shared the inner workings of the process, saying, "You get given a mantra, one word, which you repeat to yourself. I can't tell you what mine is, I don't think it actually has a meaning, but saying it over and over brought me confidence, clarity and calm and made me think: ‘I can do this.'"
