Clare is an old family friend of ours and it was incredibly special to all of us when she offered a music healing session in my parents’ home a couple of years ago.
My father’s condition was deteriorating rapidly as his multiple myeloma progressed and it was clear that we had only a short time left together.
Clare sat with us (at a distance with the door open, due to covid restrictions at the time!), and played and sang, conjuring up a dreamy reality.
This was a hugely meditative experience that created a deeper energetic connection between us. Not only was the music and singing so beautiful, Clare created a moving and spiritual experience for our family that has provided a precious memory for my sister and me after the loss of both our parents.
My father was a very skeptical man who questioned alternative therapies and most spiritual ideas, but this experience impacted him profoundly and we felt that it enabled him to come to a calmer and more accepting place of what he was going through.
At the time our mother had Alzheimer’s and it was wonderful to be able to have a shared experience that she could fully participate in. She was a very spiritual person and to be able to share this with her family and Clare was incredibly meaningful for her. Sadly, her condition deteriorated the following year as she developed motor neurone disease.
We knew that Clare would want to be with us as our mum was passing, and we connected with Clare online so that she could sing to our mum during her last week of life. Again, this has provided a special memory for us; Clare created a truly unique and spiritual experience that we know was so important to our mum and also to us as we sat with her each day coming to terms with her loss.
Both my sister and I can’t thank Clare enough for these opportunities to share something other-worldly and profound with our parents. It felt as though we were holding hands in a deep meditation that brought such calm and togetherness – just beautiful.
