From our friend Lazer Brody at Lazer Beams, a great eitza [piece of advice] if you're stuck in your Hisbodedus. The advice:
Don't fret; here's what to do when the words don't come - sing out a niggun!* A niggun (melody) uplifts the soul, puts wings on your heart, and breaks the grip of the vise that the Yetzer [the evil inclination] has clamped on your mouth (the last thing he wants you to do is to talk to Hashem!). After singing a niggun for a few warm-up minutes, the words of personal prayer and love for Hashem will flow forth like a fountain.
*THE LINKED niggun is none other than Chaim Dovid's "Ya-ma-mai"!
Thanks, Lazer! (The full article is here).
