When Violence Strikes – Got Music? (Part I)

Stop ViolenceEvery time a violent act occurs, I’m shocked, saddened, questioning why, grief-stricken. I am no different than anyone else.

Now, we have social media tools, such as Facebook and Twitter, to process our emotions “out loud,” and reach out to comfort and soothe each other. After these brutal events, I scroll through my Facebook stream and I notice many posts of music. We turn to music during these painful, challenging times.

Musicians have a powerful voice. As Arthur Schopenhauer says, “Music is the answer to the mystery of life … it expresses the deepest thoughts of life and being; a simple language which nonetheless cannot be translated.” And Hazbat Inayat Khan said, “There is nothing better than music as a means for upliftment of the soul.” Perhaps this is why we turn to music and the much-needed message from musicians’ during these times of inexplicable violence. It was Charles Munch who said, “Music is an art that expresses the inexpressible.”

Sing on … play on … shine on musicians … thanking each of you with deep gratitude.

Appreciating your continued support…

SupportFor the past 15 years (yes, really!), I’ve been blessed to do the work that I am most passionate about, as well as know it’s my deepest purpose for being on the planet at this time. I am most grateful … and I couldn’t do it without your continued support. Thank you!

Here’s a partial list:

  • To all the contacts who say “Yes, let’s do a presentation!” including Iowa Parkinson’s, Summer Institute of Holistic Health and Healing, Mayo Clinic’s Holistic Wellness, Annual Family Caregiver Appreciation, Couples Celebrating Life, Summer Eve of Music, Bacon Club, Day for Cancer Care Providers and many others. Special moments … special memories!
  • To those who ordered “Holiday Blessings” card/CD. Anytime I introduce a new idea/CD, it always feels like a risk. I am humbled by many people who always say “YES!” to my ideas!
  • This past year, I have been much more intentional on having a presence on Facebook, LinkedInTwitter and YouTube. I am amazed at the number of friends, connections, followers … be sure to join in the fun if you haven’t already!
  • To my wonderful team of BioMat distributors. I have loved getting to know you, as well as watching you grow and evolve as you share this wonderful product to help so many others. WOW!
  • For my customers who order CDs and downloads every month to bring relaxation, comfort, peace and calm to your families and those you serve.

I’m deeply passionate about spreading healing, hope and relaxation. Let me know if you have contacts that you think I need to connect with … it would be my pleasure!

Platform…

What exactly does this word mean? I was recently at a workshop and the book, “Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World” was highly recommended.

It is a book filled with thought-provoking exercises … and most importantly, it gives helpful suggestions to successfully market products and services in today’s marketplace. The author, Michael Hyatt, spells out step-by-step how to build a “tribe” and connect on social media.

Not in a million years did I think I’d be doing this, but in the past five months, I’ve actually enjoyed my social media interactions.

If you are reading this blog, you are likely part of my tribe – come on over to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube to friend, connect, follow and subscribe. What fun!
