Gentle and Loving

I have just begun reading Shift of Heart, pieces at a time… And I am finding it beautifully, serenely healing. Like Melody CDs, her voice of gentleness and love simply surrounds the reader, giving every blessing, encouragement and invitation to heal and grow. How dearly Our world and probably each one of us needs that somewhere or at some point in our lives…

Shift of Heart Will Open

I have been a fan of Cheryl Melody's work for many years and I have to say it just keeps getting better! This book is a keeper that I will refer to regularly. I have always found her music so comforting and healing and Shift of Heart is more food for the soul. Shift of Heart is refreshing and clearly written without ego. It is inviting, relatable and down to earth. I have read many self-help books over the years and ended up feeling that what the author was communicating was unattainable. Shift of Heart gives you actual tools that you can use, and after reading this book you will want to practice him daily. Thank you Cheryl Melody

Simple and Succinct

Two sentences grabbed me: "the beginning of your ideas and projects are sacred seeds." and "we are always at the beginning until the last breath.", --then I realized they both had to do with beginnings. lots of new beginnings for me in the coming year, so this book came at just the right time. Thank you for sharing your heart! Five star Amazon customer October 31, 2016
