Healing Waters Marnie Sutton Close your eyes. Come away to a place where you can breathe, slow down, heal, imagine. Refresh, bask, clease, awake. The water is alive. Rush towards it's source. 'Some seeds only open in the hottest of fires. That's what happened with me. In the midst of a place of intensified crushing, I began to play from the deepest place inside of me. And people started experiencing an amazing peace and healing in that sound...experiencing life and love. I welcome you to hear and to come away to a place where your heart can dream.' - Marnie a story from a listener: 'I want to share a quick story with you. I over visiting with some of my friends when one of them said "I really want you to hear this music that I recorded in the studio, I am so excited about it and it is very special to me." She went on to explain that, at that point, she had no intention of releasing it publicly. (I thought Wow! I get a sneak peek, cool.) They played me two of several tracks. And I would never be the same. My soul was unlocked and my spirit was set free to meet with God... it was as if this music held a secret code that just opened up places inside of me that had never been opened up before. After listening to the second track I was a melted puddle on the couch. Through a tear soaked face I uttered to my friend "it's like it's saying 'I know it hurts, but can I touch it?'" I didn't want to speak. I didn't want to move. I just wanted to stay there, in that place. I felt like my soul was being deeply, gently, yet so powerfully loved, and some healing was taking place. I also told my friend that I felt like this music had the potential to help drug addicts get free of their addiction. This music was alive and active and intelligent. And to tell you the truth, I often wished I had never heard it because it was like a drug rush and this music that wasn't going to "go public" was the drug. And no other music that I've found has ever had anywhere near the effect that this had on me. It was clean like a scalpel and cut to the chase with a purity that touched something, awakening and connecting with something inherent in me; something I needed and was made to experience... without the side effects of a drug! Probably close to a year later I was having lunch with some friends, including the ones from this story. And my friend whose music this is began telling us that she felt like it was time to release a new CD and that she had lots of details to cover and wasn't sure how they would all work out....and I quit listening to her and got lost in my own thoughts. I think I even quit breathing! I could barely wait and be polite enough to let her finish when I finally stuttered "th- th- that CD? The one you WEREN'T going to release?" She said "yes, I feel like I'm supposed to." Well, the cat was out of the bag for me! I couldn't hide my emotion any longer and I confessed to her how much that music meant to me and that I marveled when I remembered how it made me feel. I had believed that music was coming that could do what hers did but to actually taste a first fruit of it opened a whole new level of anticipation and how I almost wished I never heard it and how I was willing to pay for my own copy now even though it wasn't finished! She was encouraged by my enthusiasm. Now I'm going to get MY copy. And it is with no hesitation that I say to you: get yours. And buy a bunch for your friends, your loved ones and have some on hand for therapy groups or counseling times or meditation... The possibilities are endless!' Shannon, South Carolina.
