He is Risen
This Easter morning, I reflect on my belief in Jesus Christ.
I spent ten years of my life as an owner / operator of a small elder care home, where I and my staff cared for elderly and disabled residents in my own home.
In caregiving, it is important to honor the personal beliefs and perspectives of those you care for. Their religious views may differ from yours, but the caregiver’s role is to be supportive. I was often asked about my beliefs. I would reply that I am a person of great faith. That gave comfort without judgment.
I learned so many lessons from this time of intense immersion in the lives of others who were nearing their time of passing from this life to the next. There is a great amount of internal spiritual work that people do near the end of mortal life – even by those who suffer from dementia or mental health issues.
In those ten years, many passed away in my care home.
All but one of them were people of faith.
While they did have different religious views, all except that one expressed faith in God. Those who professed faith experienced passings that were calm, sweet, and sacred experiences for them and their families.
Except one… who professed to be an atheist. A widow, this woman had one son (an alcoholic) and two friends (a couple) who occasionally visited, who were also professed atheists. When her heart condition worsened and the doctors said nothing more could be done medically to extend her life, her son never came again, and her friends came only once more. They took me aside and told me that none of them would come again, because the end of life was so frightening and depressing.
Abandoned at the last by her son and her friends, it was my caregivers who sat by her side for hours, holding her hand and bringing what comfort they could as she did her end of life internal spiritual work. Sometimes, she would be apparrently sleeping, then suddenly sit upright and begin shrieking, even screaming, as though she had seen demons on the other side. Perhaps she did, I do not know.
It seems logical to me, a believer, that if one rejects God, one is then open to the influence of the enemy of God. Nonetheless, full of fear, this woman essentially died alone… except for the presence of those who attended her on this side of the veil, and those who awaited her on the other side according to her choices… as it is for us all.
For me, this ten year caregiving experience was a profound eye-opener. I saw such a dramatic difference in the end results of the lives of those who chose faith versus those who consciously chose fear.
And I am eternally grateful for the rich heritage of blessings and I receive each and every day through my choice to believe in my Savior Jesus Christ.
I choose love. I choose faith. I choose hope. I choose life.
He is Risen.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It is done, it is done, it is done.

3,000 Year-old Music Promotes Natural Healing…
Newly published Sound Healing Music Therapy Collection:
Michael Tyrrell, speaker, author, and amazingly talented musician discovered some musical frequencies that are no less than 3,000 years old and that have been known to support natural healing on the cellular level. Have you heard of his Wholetones Music? I love this – and want to share it with you.
Wholetones Music has improved the ambience in my home – helped calm emotions, relieve chaos, minimize stress, promote healing, break negative cycles, restore sound sleep, and improve functional abilities.
Listening to Wholetones, I find myself able to enjoy exercise for longer periods of time, to focus better when studying, to feel more connected in my relationships, to have a more positive outlook, and to better express myself. I use this music almost every day for myself and in my holistic healing and coaching work.
Wholetones Music is based on specific musical tones that improve the cellular vibrational frequencies of those who listen. If you’ve read “Power vs Force” by Dr. David R. Hawkins, you’ll know about the Map of Human Consciousness and how his research identified the vibrational frequencies of most everything that exists… and that choosing emotions in the higher vibrational frequency ranges help us feel and function at our best.

Here’s the link to Michael Tyrrell’s fascinating story of how he received these 7 ancient musical tones and created the 7 songs. You can listen to the music right there on the page. Enjoy!!
Potentially, the frequencies Michael uncovered have the power to heal you. In fact, they were used by King David to soothe King Saul during his times of depression. Michael has recorded 7 beautiful and spiritual songs that contain these ancient frequencies. Because of their natural resonance, these frequencies have been known to stimulate your body’s natural healing power down to the cellular level.

“I have the power!”
My 5 year old loved the toy action figures of “He-Man” and the other “Masters of the Universe”. I have a new perspective of that phrase now that I’ve been studying energy medicine, other natural holistic healing methods, the mechanism of the law of attraction and sacred spiritual gifts.
Recently, I had the opportunity to practice what I’ve been learning.
Walking into a public building before the office opened, I “passed through a gauntlet” of people already waiting in line, and heard a plethora of loud angry voices blaming the establishment, the neighbor, the landlord, the prison time, and everything else they could think of … rather than themselves… for their situation in life. Too much information!
I was grateful for the quiet strength of my husband at my side, and as we took our place behind them, I tried to not hear their words by attempting to focus on a digital number game. It was futile. We were subjected to a loud recounting of stories of fear, scarcity, theft, retaliation, anger and how they felt justified in taking the law into their own hands and causing bodily harm to others.
The negative energy was oppressive and beginning to spiral out of control. My husband was unaffected. He has a more broad worldly experience than I, as he worked in a prison setting for 14 years. But this focused, almost threatening energy affected me negatively. I couldn’t think. I couldn’t even speak. As the angry words became louder and louder, I began to feel overwhelmed and short of breath.
Until I remembered that “I have the power”.
I have the power to react or to respond
to whatever situation I encounter.
I have the power to create my own reality.
I am a “master of my own universe”.
And so, I quietly began to use the spiritual and emotional processes I have learned and gathered and developed, to defuse the anger and change the energy.
First, I turned on Wholetones healing music as a calm support.
I kept the volume low. It was imperceptible amid the raised voices, but the music helped me calm my own energy responded beautifully and I felt strong again.
Then silently, in meditative prayer I reached up to the Heavens and requested that Divine Light and Love become present and touch the hearts of all who were in that experience… I visualized a pillar of bright golden-white light enveloping each soul, sending love to each and all…
And within moments, there were changes in the conversation.
Quiet rest between comments.
A lighter feel in the space.
The negative energy cleared.
And no angry confrontations when the office doors opened.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
It is done, It is done, It is done.
It is more true than you may sometimes think,
you are “Master of Your Own Universe”,
and “You have the Power” to reach up, to access divine help,
and send love and light to shift the energy in the world around you.
