My husband Andrew, who began this blog in October 2007, died peacefully on September 3rd 2012, at the age of 83, after long and well-controlled illness culminating in a sudden, brief decline. I'll be posting pieces of his life writing and autobiographical reminiscences to his other blog, The Game of Life. This blog will be used for other material relevant to Andrew, beginning with the wonderful tributes to him which poured in after his death, both by email and on facebook. At some point this blog will become an archive, without further additions.— Rosemary Nissen-Wade

I am a Reiki Master interested in all forms of healing. Since July (07) I've been experimenting with the use of a Holosync disc called "Making Change Easy", produced by Centerpointe in the US.

When Bill Harris, CEO of Centerpointe, sent me the disc as a sample of what Holosync could do, it immediately sparked my interest, as I had had a healing of my heart using Theta Healing after an attack in mid-July. The disc uses the Holosync sound technology to induce a theta brain wave state opening up the unconscious mind and creating a state of receptivity.

There are five different frequencies of brain waves: Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and Gamma. Theta creates a very deep state of relaxation. It's used in hypnosis and the dream state and more recently in Theta Healing created by Vianna Stibal.

I was interested as I had recently learnt that Tom(not his real name), the 15 year old son of a close friend of mine, was diagnosed as requiring open heart surgery in early December this year, to replace his pulmonary valve. Tom had heart surgery once before when he was 10 months old. That shifted him from being a 'blue baby' to being a 'pink baby' – which was truly miraculous at the time as it corrected a congenital problem that inhibited the blood flow to his lungs.

His mother said he'd been doing well in Year 10, does weights training after school, works part-time as a 'sandwich artist' at Subway, has tennis coaching Thursday evenings, and plays competition team tennis on Saturday mornings. His team has won two premierships in the last 18 months.

“He's been fine ever since and we put the hospital / surgery experience behind us and now he only goes to the Royal Children's Hospital every 12 months for a check up. Over the past 18 months he has been growing very fast and the doctors discovered that his pulmonary valve was leaking more which has put pressure on his right ventricle, enlarging his heart. This enlargement is over the limit, they said, and was the main factor in deciding to do the surgery. They set a date in early December so that he will have recovered and be ready for his VCE Year 11 in 2008.”

A one and a half hour session six weeks ago with a therapist using kinesiology and vibrational healing, showed Tom to be generally in a very good physical state. The therapist also found that at the end of the balancing session the membrane around Tom's heart was firmer. A second recent shorter visit with him has revealed that he has continued to hold the alignment and further heal his heart valve and strengthen his right ventricle heart muscle wall. Kinesiology is showing that the healing is happening strongly.

I have also been doing daily Theta Healing sessions with the use of the Holosync CD, using Tom's photo as a visualisation tool. Tom has also been daily visualising his heart healed, pulmonary valve strong and heart returning to normal size.

As it turned out, when Tom and his family visited the hospital in early December the doctors decided to postpone the surgery pending another check of Tom’s physical condition early in the New Year.
