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!

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!

Election Day!

VoteToday is Election Day in the U.S. of A.!! While every election day feels important, this one is likely the most significant in our lifetime … be sure to VOTE today (if you haven’t already done so).

We will be hosting a virtual Peace Meditation from 1-6 p.m. CST. A select group of our friends will be in meditation throughout this time. I’ll play harp songs throughout the afternoon to keep our vibration high, as we hold space and intention for the Highest Good for our country and the world. It is a very powerful experience to be in community with this awesome group! At 6 p.m., we will meet in a local restaurant and then return to our respective homes to watch happy election results on TV … hopefully!

Again, PLEASE VOTE!!

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!

About Your Health and The BioMat

Pro BioMat Set with New ControllerI was recently talking to one of the BioMat distributors on my team and her comment/observation was, “Never has there been a more important time to pay attention to your health!”

I know from personal BioMat use and serving many customers, the BioMat is an important component to many peoples’ health and healing. CoVid and the need to boost our immune system heightens our need to use the BioMat. A unique blend of three healing elements, the BioMat utilizes far infrared heat, amethyst crystals and negative ions.

If you are interested in more information about how the BioMat can help you and your health journey, let’s connect!

Blessings of CoVid-19

BlessingI was recently on a Zoom call and someone asked the question, “What are the blessings you’ve received from the coronavirus?” Honestly, the question took me aback, because there’s been so much focus on the negative. Even though I don’t feel like I’ve personally lived in the negativity, I wasn’t prepared to list my blessings. After taking some time to reflect, here’s a few things I’m grateful for:

  • Playing my pedal harp to “send out” peace and calm energetically every day.
  • A deeper connection/relationship with my friends and support system.
  • Easing up on Mother Earth (reduced pollution, cleaner waters, less frenetic busy-ness, etc.)
  • Daily walks in nature and breathing in fresh air. (I’m also so glad the pandemic “hit” in mid-March vs. mid-January in Minnesota!)
  • Connecting daily with people I had lost touch with or hadn’t connected with for a long time.
  • Meditating daily to help fill “the field” with love and peace.
  • Cleaning. Cleaning. Cleaning. My house feels lighter and more organized, and I love this feeling!
  • Working with my harp therapy students. As we have connected each week, we spend the first few minutes of each lesson processing our CoVid experiences, as well as mutually supporting each other.
  • Working on a couple exciting, new creative projects!
  • Time to enhance and deepen my self-care practice.

I could go on … I’m amazed at how long the list already is! What’s on your list of CoVid blessings? As we “hold space” for the struggles and pain of CoVid, we can also be grateful. I invite you to reflect on your CoVid blessings (if you haven’t already done so)…
