Music Streaming

Music streamingI recently saw a Facebook post with a photo of “payments” from Spotify. I put quotes around “payments” because the picture was line item after line item of Spotify entries that were either .00 or .01 … yes, that’s NO payment or a penny per entry!! And the comments below this post were unanimous with numerous musicians – “I have the same problem”!!

Wonder why Spotify is involved in two LARGE lawsuits with both famous and independent musicians?!! Doesn’t take a rocket scientist (or a rockstar musician!!) to figure this out, right?!!

So, what can you do to help? Support your favorite musicians by buying their CDs or downloads, and plan to listen for years of enjoyment. I, along with thousands of other musicians, will be very grateful! Thanking you in advance …

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy ThanksgivingAll month long we celebrate the holiday of gratitude – Thanksgiving! (The actual date is Nov. 23 this year.) We hope you have time to reflect on all your many blessings that connect you to feeling grateful. We are aware we have so much to be thankful for:

  • Our gigs where we’ve had an opportunity to share our harp music, passion and message.
  • Our customers who continue to purchase books and CDs, and use our products to support their journey.
  • Our addendum BioMat business and all the wonderful people we’ve had an opportunity to connect with and help in their healing journeys.
  • Our learning from the first two Virtual Harp Summits.
  • Our re-connection this past summer with the harp therapy community (International Harp Therapy Program’s regional conference).
  • Our flexible schedule so that I can be present to my aging parents.
  • On and on the list goes …

So, you can see, we have much to be in gratitude. How about you?

100 Days of Miracles

100 Days of MiraclesWe recently completed a “course” called 100 Days of Miracles. It is actually a game with three mini decks of cards to draw daily–angels, butterflies, and peacocks. You may ask why these three symbols? The developer, Jean Berry, of the Business Miracle Academy, shares, “Angels are reflective of the inner work that we do to create a successful business, peacocks symbolize the outer work and butterflies are all about collaboration.”

So, for 100 days, it was a daily draw. We loved the messages and the action steps from each of the three cards. As we completed these items, it really moved our work/life forward…a lot!! And yes, we experienced miracles upon miracles, and we are grateful.

And now we recognize why only 100 days…why not keep going to manifest more dreams coming true?!

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!

  6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
  7. Remember:  Less is often more.
  8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places (so true with traffic).
