Holiday Relaxation Tips

At Musical Reflections, we keep thinking about how we can help reduce your holiday stress. Here’s a few ideas:

  • Be mindful of your breathing several times a day.
  • Pause a few times daily paying attention to how you feel. Journal about or express all emotions to release them.
  • Listen to calming music, moving you to your peaceful core. (May we suggest either The Christmas Story or Christmas Music for Tranquility.) Play these and your other favorite holiday CDs at 25% less volume than you would normally listen.
  • Many radio shows feature beautiful holiday music. Find your favorite station and listen while you are driving or doing any holiday preparations.
  • Set realistic expectations. Sometimes family gatherings increase our stress levels, so think about self-care strategies that work for you … and follow through!
  • Prioritize! If possible, decrease the number of obligations during the month of December and put one or two things on your calendar that bring you joy, nurture your spirit.

Finally, model holiday peace to those we serve. When you are centered and calm, everyone you touch will pick up these peaceful “vibes” during this spiritual time of year.

Beyond Surgery Program

I recently completed coursework from the “Beyond Surgery Program.” After attending the 18 hours of required training, I am now a Surgery Coach Practitioner.

I am networking to locate three surgery patients that I can coach. Once I have completed this, as well as documenting these experiences, I will be a Certified Surgery Coach through the American Holistic Nurses Association.

The “Beyond Surgery Program” has its roots in the following modalities:

  • Healing Touch
  • Anxiety Release Technique®
  • HeartMath®
  • Breathing exercises and other stress reduction techniques
  • Guided Imagery

And I’m excited about the possibilities of incorporating Harp Therapy and the BioMat as I work with patients who are undergoing surgery (or any medical procedure). I will keep you posted (through this blog) on my progress with this new, heart-felt work…

A Special Review!

The Daily OM shared this beautiful review about my “Blessings to You” CD with its 1 million+ customers. I am deeply touched and humbled …

“Harpist extraordinaire Tami Briggs makes deeply soothing instrumental music that inspires deep tranquility and a sense of wellness. She first realized the healing power of the harp’s angelic sound while playing it for patients at hospitals and hospices. Now, Briggs combines the music with her knowledge of healing to move into the world of recorded healing sounds.

For Blessings to You, simple and eloquently heartfelt melodies and countermelodies form naturally occurring wells of comfort and solace, penetrating the “lullaby ground zero” of a deep-seated sense of self and security. Close your eyes and you can feel past infancies and access their feeling of security and warmth—feelings that are available to us at any age and time, regardless of actual circumstance. After all, as long as one has the right key, one can access anything. Briggs has the key in these template melodies that seem to predate our own natural existence, like timeless caresses from the eternal mother to whom we are all, always, just a few months old, innocent, and loveable.”
