I lived at Harbin HotSprings, above Napa Valley in Northern California for three months. No phones, no TV, exquisite nature and amazing springs. I was the pastry chef and received “orgasmic reviews” for my Montana Moms Dynamite Cheescake. Receipe can be found in the original Moosewood cookbook. Enjoy!
One sunny afternoon, I had a relaxing and nurturing massage with Nirakar, and as he massaged my forearms and hands he asked me if I played the piano. “No, I said, used to as a child, could never get the chords and the right hand in sync. ” “There is something about your hands and your arms that makes me think that you play. ” I recalled all the times I heard my Mother calling me from upstairs during my practice time saying “I don’t hear that piano.” I had much more fun twirling around on the piano stool.
After leaving Harbin I lived for a few months with Francesca and Igor in Woodacre. Met a healer from San Francisco who was facilitating DNA activation. She said that healing the two strands and then expanding the double helix to create twelve integrated strands could lead to:
- Aligining with my life’s purpose
- Increasing energy, clarity and focus
- More awareness and expanding my consciousness
- Greater connection with my Higher Self
- Rejuvenating my body
- Increasing self-trust
- Increasing inner peace and calmness
- Moving into my highest potential and greatest empowerment
Sounded good to me and I booked four sessions with her. I felt more aligned and centered and was meeting many creative people and having a wonderful time.
One morning I sat at Francesca’s piano and was fooling around playing a running scale with my fingers slipping and skipping over the keys. Then the magic happened. My hands started moving on their own volition. My left brain said “I think it would be great if you played…..without waiting for the rest of the directive I said “I think it would be great if you go out for cappuccino and check in later.” I realized that the music was coming from a higher realm that I hadn’t experienced before. I played for six hours since I thought this new found ability might disappear. I played for three hours everyday until I moved back to Hawaii and then I was like an addict looking for a piano.
I believe that everything is energy and vibrates at a different frequency. The more I played I realized that I could play the energy of a person, place, or thing. I began facilitating “Vibrational Healing” evenings in Honolulu and the audience would request songs. The only stipulation was that it couldn’t be music that anyone had heard before. I played their soul songs, healing songs for their friends and the energy of the islands. The music carries the intention of healing, centering, inspiration and transformation.
A few years later after recording my 2nd CD , I visited California , went to Harbin and had another massage with Nirikar. I handed him one of my CD’s and said “Years ago you asked me if I played the piano and at that time I said no. This is solo transformational piano music that I recorded while living in Hawaii.” He said he would play my music during his sessions.
On your journey be aware of the potential others see in you before you can see your expanded self.
