The Psaltery is heavenly

I have recently started playing an instrument called the Bowed Psaltery. According to the book, “The Psimple Psaltery Instruction Book”, By Melodye Whatley and Ingrid Skinner, it has been around since the 1940’s, when Walter Mittman, a German school teacher wanted to create a bowed instrument that was simpler for children to play. He created the Soprano Bowed Psaltery. The instrument came into my life when I was meditating and asking my guides to help me to find a sound that would be very healing and beautiful. I first found the Lap Harp. It is an instrument that is stringed and you pluck it. It has a very angelic tone. When I went on YouTube to find out if there were any videos explaining how to play it. I happened to see another instrument that was sold by Zither Heaven. It was triangular in shape and when it was played by gliding the bow over the strings, the sound I heard was like an ethereal violin. It as called the Bowed Psaltery. I knew that was the instrument I was looking for. I bought a 22 string Soprano Psaltery from Zither Heaven. It took a couple of weeks to get comfortable with the bowing. Playing simple scales is very soothing. I feel my Chakras being balanced. It sounds wonderful with the Hammered Dulcimer, the Classical Guitar, the Harp or using two bows and creating your own harmony (that is what I am working right now.) I stared playing along with recordings and it compliments every thing-from playing Folk songs as well as Classical Music.

My guides have said that with this instrument I can compose music that can heal and balance all the meridians in the body. So now I am starting to meditate on this and allow the inspiration to flow through my intuitive channel.  I have also been wanting to start playing in a group. When I was talking to one of my neighbors I found out that she wants to start playing an instrument. I showed her my Psaltery and she wants to start playing it. I decided to move up to a Baritone Psaltery and my neighbor is getting my Soprano.

Today I went to my favorite Angel store in Benicia, Angel Heart 4 You. There happened to be a reader who takes photos of the Aura and then she gives you a reading. Coleen said I have many new chapters in my life opening up. She shared some wellness information and how to continue the good health and I hadn’t told Coleen anything. It showed up in my photograph. She says there is a lot of Faery energy around me and that the humming birds that have been visiting me are part of the Faery beings wanting to connect with me. Coleen suggested that I create a Faery garden. I know the perfect place in my yard. We have lived in our house for over 11 years and this spot looks over the side kitchen window. I have always drawn to it Just today, before the reading, I was telling my husband that I want to do something with it but not sure what? After the reading Coleen gave me, I know. I am sure the Faery beings will guide me to what plants to use and what stones they would like.

The other gift I received was Coleen. In the course of our conversation, she mentioned that she has a Zither. I asked her if she would like to get together and start playing. She said yes. So now there are two people who want to share music. I am feeling so blessed for these opportunities. I am being drawn to go to Senior centers and retirement homes and play. I believe many magical things will appear. The Fairies will be there. They will love it. Isn’t it amazing that magic is always around us and being open to the pathways, they just appear.

There are many blessings that continue to flow in. I am very grateful.
