This hymn is by Peter Madden and based on John 14. I used to love singing it at school during assembly. It’s been with me a long time. It’s repeated 10 times because it’s so short and I wanted to celebrate it over and over! After each rendition there are 10 seconds of space to meditate and reflect.
This harp reset uses two chords in the key of F# Minor. Nourishing vibrations and resonance echo out with the harp strings. By focusing on two simple chords you can get out of your mind and flow with soft, enchanting music. Life can be so complicated so reset your mind to simplicity.
A simple recording of a beautiful hymn. I only came across My God Loves Me a year ago and I just love it. Here I’m singing it as a celestial lullaby. It’s not quite the same melody as the original but I went with what my heart was feeling. Lush image by Eberhard-Grossgasteiger, with thanks.
Cardinal Newman lived 1801 - 1890. His prayers and teachings are poetic, full of grace and fervour. Some of the prayers included in this new sacred prayer track are:
A Prayer to the Sacred Heart
A Prayer of Surrender
Prayer for the Light of Truth
May you be healed and nurtured by them. Amen.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
I absolutely love listening to birdsong. Now that signs of spring are here, in the garden, the chorus has ramped up and there are beautiful melodies to be heard everywhere. I’m really enjoying the Dunnock at the moment 💗🎶💗
So grateful to hear these healing sounds. What’s your favourite birdsong?
AI image created by me through Copilot. That’s me having a crazy hair day. Absolutely loving this textured, felt style. Yay for fluffy birdies!
Ash Wednesday has been activated! Have you given up anything up for Lent? It’s a powerful time of dedication, penitence, prayer and mysticism. I can feel the energy rising. 🕊️
Sweet harp with a comforting, relaxing wave soundscape recorded at my new seaside home. Waves are the best lullaby. Join me in my new studio for magical melodies. This music is full of holy vibrations and healing sounds. Listen to go on a celestial journey. Listen to fill yourself up with love.
Went to a fund raising tea party to help raise money for those suffering from the the war in Ukraine. A vast array of Ukrainian cakes were made by Ukrainian refugees and they were a sight to behold. I’ve never seen such elegance and tasted such deliciousness. It was a beautiful gathering of love (and cake).
An immovable appointment meant I was battling a seaside storm earlier with my umbrella. Practical for snow pelting down, less so when the wind whipped up and turned it inside out 🤪😅 It was amazing to get back home again and appreciate a cuppa. Very grateful to feel cosy this winter stormy season.
Best traits: Luxuriously velvety ears, super duper friendly.
Worst traits: Loves eating and playing with dead fish off the beach.
He’s the bestest boy obvs.
First sound check from my new seaside studio and a beautiful lens flare appeared so I thought I’d record it for you all and it turned into a little, happy chat. 😀
Excited to finally share with you the Saint Michael painting I’ve chosen for my studio wall. I’ve loved this Saint Michael art since the first time I saw it twenty years ago. Magnificent. Feeling blessed. 💙 by Daniel Mirante.
Braved the winds in my polar coat to witness this majesty. Totally obsessed with sunsets (haven’t quite got the sunrises sorted yet 😀).
Happy Saturday! Here’s my latest joyful newsletter. Only taken me five months to write 😅
