Musical Reflections wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy ThanksgivingThe U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving is coming soon! It is one of our favorite holidays. How about you? It is less stressful (and frankly, less work) than Christmas/New Years. And more importantly, it is a time of gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation. We love to reflect what we are most grateful for from the previous year:

  • Our customers – that’s YOU!
  • CoVid gave us the opportunity to discern about what’s the “next generation” of our work/business. Stay tuned for exciting new launches coming soon!
  • We also love our “sister businesses” – the BioMat and Young Living essential oils. We love these products personally and enjoy sharing the benefits with those we serve. It’s a win-win!
  • We have loved working with our therapeutic harp lesson students. These students already know how to play the harp, but want to learn more about playing at the hospital and hospice bedside. What a joy and honor to work with them!
  • Every time someone signs up for our new on-line course called “Sounds of Healing for Wellness Professionals,” it brings us joy! We love sharing our content in this unique, cutting-edge format.

Since Musical Reflections’ inception on May 21, 1999, we have been passionate about offering various products and services to contribute to your healing journey. What an honor! We are so grateful … Happy Thanksgiving!

Neighbors…

MedicalI love to walk in my neighborhood, especially this time of year. And many days, I coordinate with my neighbor who is a home care nurse. When we walk together, we also talk … and a whole bunch of topics are covered!!

Recently, we were walking and my neighbor was de-briefing her day of visiting patients. (I don’t think this is an easy job, visiting with them for 20 minutes, then battling traffic and the weather to get to the next patient and do it all over … all day long.)

As we were walking by one of the houses in our neighborhood, a woman was standing outside and she said, “Excuse me! Are one of you women a doctor?” My friend said, “I’m a nurse, not a doctor. Do you need help?” The other woman said she wanted to show something, so she slightly slid down her neckline. She had an open sore and the nurse replied, “Oh, I suggest you go to the ER and they will give you some antibiotics and salve for your wound.”

We continued walking but I thought (although I didn’t say anything) … really?! How about some Vitamin E for tissue repair and anti-scarring, essential oils for infection control/healing, and using the Healing Touch technique of ultrasound. Obviously, I’m not a nurse, but I found it fascinating that both of us immediately went to our “healing toolboxes” … hers of traditionality and mine of au naturel. Who was right? I’d suggest both of us … and I am awaiting and very much looking forward to the day of both consumers and the medical world “getting,” appreciating and recommending the wide array of possibilities to promote the healing journey. I continue to envision this occurring sooner rather than later … bring it on!!
