Well-Being and the Harp – Part III

Well BeingMental well-being for harpists is an important component of our overall health. To begin, a quick question to ponder … when you get a challenging passage in the music, what do you tell yourself:

  • Here comes the hard part? OR
  • I’ve got this!

What we’re talking about is our self-talk, which also links to setting intentions. To define intentions, they are similar to:

  • Goals
  • New year’s resolutions
  • Prayer
  • Dreams (heart, not sleep!) –> manifest

Our energy follows our thoughts so if we think it, this is where our energy goes. This is why it’s important to think good thoughts. It is almost like a brain re-program or paradigm shift. For example:

  • Is our language filled with hope and possibilities or is it of drudgery, negativity?
  • Does our life go smoothly and flow with ease and grace or are we tripped up with trauma/drama?
  • Have you noticed if we tell ourselves we’re tired, going to be a rotten day vs. I have good energy to accomplish what I need to today – it impacts our day!

These statements become our energetic blueprint and connect us to what we manifest. We are encouraging mindfulness which is positive mental health and well-being for you, as a harpist, and for those you serve. Our final blog post of the four areas of well-being will be next week, on spiritual well-being.

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?!

Turning 30…

That’s when I started playing the harp … really! (If I told you how many years I’ve been playing, I would tell you my age!!) I was in a painful place in my life and gave myself harp lessons for my 30th birthday. I hadn’t ever given myself a gift before turning 30, but that year it was really important for my heart.

I love to share this story when I speak, hoping it inspires others to learn something new and follow their dreams. I’ve had many people come up to me afterwards and say, “You inspired me. I’ve always wanted to __(fill in the blank)___ and even though I’m long-past 30, I want to make my dream come true.”

What do you dream of learning? Regardless of your age, now is the time!!
