Take the right-hand position,
How to Play the Harp

And prepare it to strum,

Anticipate the note,
Let your left hand have fun.
 


Then close your eyes gently,
And with a little bit of luck,
An Angel will assist you,
With your very next pluck.


 
You see playing God’s music,
Must come from the heart,
Each note is life-giving,
When playing your harp.


 
Don’t try make it perfect,
Let melodies flow,
And the Angels will guide you,
If you just take it slow.


 
We all must make music,
In our own heartfelt way,
So embrace your harp angels,
And start playing harp today!

Letting it flow… What an easy way to live life! Playing the harp certainly takes a lot of talent but consider this. Does everything really have to be so hard, so fast, so competitive?

 Maybe not. Think about a piece of music that makes your heart sing. The musicians who are performing it are enjoying it. They have enough mastery over their hearts desire that the music simply flows.

Whether you want to play the harp or any instrument is irrelevant. What is important is that we look at what our heart is asking us to perform. If it doesn’t flow, it doesn’t go. What is also important is slowing down enough to enjoy what’s in front of us in this single instant. What’s important is recognizing we need not do anything alone. There are always good people and excellent angels around that we can ask for assistance.

And, while I’m harping on you, here’s one final point. The last line of the harp-hype above, “And start playing today,” means, just start playing.

I was inspired, while listening to Christine Magnussen’s amazing harp music to write this piece. She’s a talented musician and great harp teacher! Check her out at http://peacecalm.com/online-harp-coach-christinemagnussen/
