Introducing the Peace Harp!

PeaceHarpI am so excited to introduce the new “Peace Harp!”

A beautiful, sweet sound, it is 12 strings and weighs about two pounds. These special little harps are custom-made with a dove and olive branch carved into the sound box. It is a perfect instrument if you want to add positive, loving vibrations into the collective energy field or share it with your favorite people in your life!

My 365-Day Commitment

365On July 25, 2020, I made a commitment to play my harp every day for 365 days for peace and global healing. I’m excited to share that I’m about one month away from having accomplished this … homestretch and without a doubt, I’m sure I will fulfill my commitment! It has been a beautiful endeavor.

Besides playing every day, I’ve also kept a daily journal of my experiences, insights and learnings. This will eventually be a book … stay tuned!

Alexa, Play Tami Briggs!

AlexaA friend of mine shared some of my Musical Reflections’ marketing literature with one of her friends. He took a look at the flyer and said, “Oh, she plays the harp. Alexa, play Tami Briggs!” Sure enough, Alexa began playing my music and the two of them listened as they met. Technology is simply amazing these days, isn’t it?!!

Do you have an Alexa? If so, it likely plays my harp music … ENJOY!!

United Nations of Harpists

Images - United Nations 1I’m so excited to announce that over the past winter, I launched a new organization called United Nations of Harpists. It is harpists from all over the world who are playing the harp for peace, unity, love and harmony. Currently, we have 30 harpists from 9 countries.

If you are a harpist and this mission “speaks to you,” please consider joining us! Click here for more information. We meet once a month – our next meeting is April 20 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. CST. (There are two options because of the numerous countries/time zones – you only need to attend one session.)

Peace to you …

A Beautiful Gift!

United Nations Charm1When United Nations of Harpists launched in February 2021, we were a Zoom gathering of 28 harpists from eight countries + one of my dear friends who is not a harpist, but asked, “Can non-harpists also be a part of this group?” Of course, I said yes!

After our first meeting, this friend called me and said, “When I was 10 years old, I attended the World’s Fair in New York City. On that trip, we toured the United Nations … my family bought me a charm for my bracelet that I’ve kept for 50+ years! And now, because of your new organization, I’m gifting you with this charm.” (see photo)

I am so touched … what a beautiful gift and so very meaningful! Thank you to my special, dear friend!!

Harp Music & Pets!

Harp & PetsA few days after the George Floyd murder, I was practicing my harp when my phone rang. It was my dear friends in Kansas City checking in to see how I was doing through all the turmoil. I told them I was playing my harp, and as long as I was doing that, I felt OK.

I asked her if she’d like a harp song. I sat my phone down, played and after finishing the song, she said, “My dog was so agitated and as he listened on speaker to the harp, he curled up beside me and is now completely chilled out … we both calmed down!! Thank you.”

Do you have pets? Try some harp music!!

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!

More Thoughts on Zoom…

Zoom LogoIn the last blog post, I discussed using Zoom for presentations/performances. And frankly, my somewhat negative experiences using it for those purposes.

On a more positive note, where I have seen Zoom work very well:

  • My therapeutic harp lessons – I have been working with students who already play the harp, but are interested in learning more about playing at the hospital and hospice bedside.
  • Virtual harp therapy – I wrote about this in an earlier blog. I am excited to offer this as a virtual healing modality and the opportunities are endless … around the globe!

So, CoVid-19 has blessed us with many changes and using technology, specifically Zoom, in some beautiful, unique ways. I am grateful to be here at this amazing time in our human evolution! If you are interested in additional information for either of these, I look forward to connecting.

Harp on Zoom!

Zoom LogoEveryone’s on Zoom … I am, too! And here’s “my take” on it. After doing numerous live events over the past 21+ years, I wasn’t sure how I would like performing on Zoom.

I did two harp group events during the initial lock-down of CoVid-19. While the actual virtual events went OK, the hardest part was ending in a quiet house (my living room) without any audience feedback. So, the quiet after presentations/events has been a big adjustment!

That said, I’ve recently invested in upgrading my system and am excited about offering many different types of Zoom sessions! Interested? Let’s connect! I look forward to working together …

Virtual Harp Therapy

Music NoteIn the International Harp Therapy Program (IHTP) Facebook group, we have been discussing if harp therapy is effective virtually. I had a personal experience to say “YES, it is!”

I have been teaching therapeutic harp lessons for harpists who want to improve their musicality and learn more about playing the harp at the hospital and hospice bedside. One of my students is from the Netherlands and in one of her lessons, she played a Schubert lullaby for me. As she played, I became aware of a painful area in my lower back and I “sent” the harp vibrations to the sore spot. I could literally feel it dissolve.

It was an incredible first-hand experience of how virtual harp therapy (on Zoom) is powerful and healing…almost as good as in person! I believe this opens up many opportunities and possibilities for therapeutically trained musicians. If you would like to explore virtual harp therapy sessions, please reach out and let’s connect!
