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)…

When Violence Strikes – Got Music? (Part II)

Stop Violence - 2As soon as I posted the last blog about music and violence, I realized I had more to say about this important topic/issue.

Whenever violence “hits” us, we are left wondering why this continues to happen in our beloved country. Is it violent TV, movies and video games? Is it gun laws (or lack thereof)? Is it deep unrest in the depths of our souls? Is it a mental health issue? Is it geo-political? Is it stress-related? Or something else???

And as a harpist, I can’t help but ask, “How can my music help? How can I be a part of the solution? How can I assist and/or facilitate the healing process through music?” When the harp is played with a peaceful intention, it is music to soothe the soul, comfort our contemplative core, calm our jaggled nerves, and move us into deep rest.

After each violent episode, I reflect, “What is my intention with my music?” My answer – to bring peace. To nurture your heart. To relax you. To relieve stress. To facilitate healing. I am honored to help you with your journey. To receive the gifts I offer, click to watch videos, order CDs and/or music devices, and purchase downloads. Many continued blessings to you …

Tapping!!

Tapping“Take a day to heal from the lies you’ve told yourself and the ones that have been told to you.” ~Maya Angelou

I recently came across this powerful quote and it reminded me of something I’ve recently been exploring … tapping! (not toe tapping, but tapping on seven points on the head and upper body area).

The whole point of tapping is to “rid” our body/mind/spirit of any negative messages, just as the Angelou quote says. I have found tapping to be a profound healing experience! If you would like more information, here’s two resources:  Nick Ortner of the Tapping Solution and Margaret Lynch.

In a nutshell, tapping helps move us out of our Reptilian brain and into our executive brain (pre-frontal cortex). It also helps us relax and feel calm to make even better decisions. Doesn’t all of that sound awesome?!! Can you see why I’m enjoying this new experience of learning to tap?!!

The Stress of Back-to-School

back to schoolFor children and teens, back-to-school time can be very stressful. First of all, the freedom that summer brings is over. Secondly, there can be a much earlier morning routine of breakfast, getting to the bus, etc. And third, headed back into the classroom brings uncertainty of new teacher(s), friends and environments. All of this amounts to stress and tension … and adults feel this, too. (Even if you don’t have children, there’s a “remembering feeling” that goes with this time of year.)

How can Musical Reflections help? Just a friendly reminder that we are here to provide relaxation, peace and calm to every day regardless of the stress you and your family feel. May soothing harp music bring you to a place of balance …
