Once I felt and heard my voice fall into alignment, singing really became effortless.
The process of getting into alignment, however, takes effort.
But it's NOT the strenuous, physically-draining type of effort that you might associate with going to the gym.
It's the effort of getting out of the way.
You see, I realised that all the vocal struggles I had were because of unhelpful habits.
These unhelpful habits were so ingrained in my system that I didn't even realise I had them.
