Like many around the world, I am a huge fan of Yanni and his music. His music transports me to another realm where life is beautiful and flows freely. I listen to his music during times of stress, and especially over the last few months where the stress in Bahrain has multiplied. I also love playing his music on the piano.
A few months ago, I cut out a picture of Yanni and pasted it on my vision board. It has been my dream to attend a Yanni concert for a while now. I look at my vision board every night before I go to sleep. That’s where I pin cutouts and pictures of my goals and dreams.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a Yanni concert LIVE in the magical city of Istanbul. Open-air concert in beautiful weather, Yanni’s music playing to the backdrop of the Bosphorus and Istanbul’s gorgeous skyline.
I am very very grateful. Grateful to God and the Universe for allowing this ‘coincidence’, and to my friends who helped make it happen.
I wanted to bring some of that magic back to Bahrain, but I couldn’t. So, if you are stressed right now, I highly recommend Yanni’s music as an antidote. Close your eyes and drift.
It reminds me of a Rumi quote that my friend J’Lein put on her facebook page a few weeks ago:
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there’s a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi
These are some of his old videos that I got from YouTube.
