The Keys to Meditation – My Mindful Life Contest Entry on Steemit

White and black keys lay before me,
but the image fades.
My fingers move across the notes,
but my brain does not think.
My ears hear music and rhythm,
and that is all there is.
It is here, it is now.
It is.

When I was six years old, I wanted to learn to play the piano, so my mother paid for lessons. While I learnt a lot of the techniques, which I don’t practice enough today, I noticed something when I played that has stayed all the way to today.

I am more relaxed,
I am less anxious,
I let go,
I gain focus,
I gain clarity,
I recharge,
I clear my mind,
I meditate.

Music has always been a way for me to get into a meditative state, mindfulness meditation, as they say. I was a bit more rigid when I was younger, less able to improvise on the piano.

She Who Shall Feed (Steem Monsters Haunted Spider Theme)

Come join me and follow the adventures of the Haunted Spider from Steem Monsters through musical motions on the piano. With three movements, the Haunted Spider takes up her new form and destiny as she searches for her loved ones and searches for prey, desires to be free and desires to feed. “She Who Shall Feed” is vaguely inspired by the Steem Monsters main theme music (just a few hints here and there), and is an original composition.

You can follow along by simultaneously reading the Haunted Spider’s story, and probably be able to identify which part of the story inspired which part of the song.

Slightest Piano Cover (Dragon Age Inquisition Trespasser Bard Songs OST)

I perform “Slightest”, the Bard Song from Dragon Age Inquisition Trespasser DLC Soundtrack, on the piano. It is an interpretation played by ear and adjusted to fit for piano. I guess we can call it a piano cover of “Slightest”.
