Meditation in the New Year

MeditationAre you ramping up your meditation practice since the New Year? Here’s one idea to bring in more love and light … and don’t forget to turn on your favorite harp music before you start:

  • Close your eyes. Take a deep, slow inhalation breath through your nose. And move your gaze or focus to your third eye (between your eyebrow and at the center of your forehead). Envision light streaming into you.
  • Exhale through your mouth and move your focus to your heart.
  • Repeat the first two bullet points very slowly with deep breaths.
  • Each time you go into your heart, expand the good feelings. Envision love, appreciation, peace, gratitude and joy.
  • This is Light and Love.
  • Continue to connect to yourself, the community around you, as well as the world at large.

You can do this meditation any time you need to connect with something that is bigger than yourself. Happy meditating!

More on Being a Certified Harp Practitioner

harp therapy1In this blog post, we will share the “Scope of Practice” for being a Certified Harp Practitioner.

A Certified Harp Practitioner’s practice is to use the intrinsic healing elements of live harp music to provide an environment conducive to the human healing process. (Healing is defined as movement toward mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wholeness.)

Requirements in the following categories are required to be a Certified Harp Practitioner:

  1. Musicianship
  • Demonstrates/applies knowledge of basic music theory and techniques.
  • Improvises and plays music in a fluid, musical fashion.
  • Plays appropriate repertoire.
  • Is sensitive to the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient.
  1. Professionalism
  • Uses appropriate interpersonal skills, etiquette, and legal, ethical and moral judgment, when interacting with patients, families and hospital/hospice staff; adheres to a strict Code of Ethics. (Stay tuned for our next blog post.)
  • Presents a positive, mature and professional image in manners, communication and dress.
  • Respects diversity of cultural traditions, values and musical preferences.
  • Demonstrates a responsible attitude about personal identification, documentation, scheduling, infection control, hospital equipment and privacy.
  • Focuses on the welfare of the patient above all else in a compassionate and non-judgmental manner.
  • Works within the determined scope of practice of therapeutic musicians; seeks appropriate assistance when needed.
  • Engages in appropriate self-care and continuing education.

If you are interested in learning more or wish to have me play at the hospital or hospice bedside for you or your loved one, please contact me.

Introducing Young Living into our Product Lines

Young Living LogoMany of my friends are Young Living distributors, and after lots of research and discernment, I am also “jumping in” to be a distributor … I am excited!

Actually, I’ve been using three essential oils for several years:  1) Thieves, 2) Valor, and 3) White Angelica. My favorite is Thieves – it not only smells great (and I’m super sensitive to smells), but the oil also acts as an immune booster. Put a drop on the bottoms of both feet and right below the clavicle bone (high heart) and it wards off colds and flu like magic! I have found it to be especially helpful/powerful when used in combination with the BioMat (another product I rep!). Thieves on, BioMat heat cranked up and “cocoon” with a blanket, and harp music on, falling into a deep sleep … you will wake up refreshed and “batting 1,000%”!!

Contact us at tami@MusicalReflections.com if you want to learn more about three powerful healing modalities – Young Living essential oils, BioMats, and/or harp music.
