Therapeutic Music from the Harp
“Music heals.” Pythagoras
In 2002, following a period of disillusionment, I began Post Graduate training in metaphysics, energy medicine and holistic therapies with The Academy of Spiritual Sciences, which was the first step towards following my life plan dreams. During this period, I bought a small harp and was encouraged by Carol Lamb, my therapist course tutor, to teach myself to play intuitively. Although I played the guitar and mandolin, I had never created music before and wondered how it would happen.
As I learned the principles of energy alignment through meditation and the Emerald Alignment, I found that the music began to flow spontaneously and also that in order to play intuitively it is essential to disengage the mind. If I started thinking about what I was doing, the musical flow stopped and I would need to align again to reconnect intuitively. The more I learned to disengage my mind, the longer I could sustain the intuitive connection, enabling the creative musical energy to flow through my body and into the strings. At such times I felt as if I was in the audience not knowing what was going to come next. Over time, I became aware of different musical influences as I played, prompting me to compose short pieces.
I established Harp Alignment to develop this unique style of harp music, offering harp lessons and therapy. I have played healing music in over 190 cares homes in Great Britain.
