2017 NEWSLETTER



Dear Friends of Healing Music,


Welcome to 2018 - THE YEAR OF LIGHT. 

For me 2017 had the most challenging and amazing and sad and happy experiences.... Weird, whacky and wonderful.

We are living the big shifts. One friend summed it up perfectly - 2017 was like having a full moon everyday and some days felt like four full moons in one day!!!!

I don't usually bring in family matters but I know that many many of you knew about my dear brother Ron and the protracted illness he was going through. He had pancreatic cancer for over three and a half years and last summer he died peacefully in a beautiful hospice, listening to my Sacred Sounds for Sleep music. I want to thank everyone who has helped and supported Ron, me and our family during this difficult but often beautiful journey. Ron died being the true essence of what he was - kindness. He died with an open heart. I am so grateful.

On the day he died I had the most amazing spiritual ceremony - my Priestess Ceremony in a chapel in the woods...... We felt Ron's presence with us, one of the most poignant days of my life.

Thanks to all who helped with the ceremony and a special thank you to my friend Lorraine Gane who wrote the beautiful poem for the day:

PRIESTESS MOON
I am the priestess of the night,
I am the priestess of the day,
my heart, the love, the light,
the radiance of the Great Mother
awakened within me now.

I will tell you more in the coming year about my sharing community named Heartsong Horizons and the work I am doing through this community with David Deschambault . My Priestess Ceremony was part of the establishing energy for Heartsong Horizons.....

Because it was such a wild and different energy last year I would like to end the talking part of the newsletter here and leave you with a collage of images from 2017.

I wish you the bestest (fairy word) for everything in your life during this pivotal 2018 year!!!! 

BRING IN THE LIGHT, SHARE THE LIGHT, BE THE LIGHT

fairy and priestess blessings, love, debrina
