The Power of Music over the Mind

        Ellen J. Barrier
Musician/Recording Artist/Songwriter

“Music is a safe kind of high.” __Jimi Hendrix

There is a power in music that can connect with the listener, in a way that no other source can. Music has power over the mind.

Artists are able to stir emotions with their music, through the state of mood feelings:  There are many genres of music to choose from. Each piece of art has its own mood.  In the quote below from the bible, this artist mood is sad. In the next quote, the effect of the artist, with this listener, is that high mood, Mr. Hendrix was referring to.  Music is like a medicine. We are addicted to music, because we need it. It can bring relief to the aches and stressful situations that life brings. We live in a world of music. There is sound and rhythm everywhere we go!

The Sad Mood:
 “My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.” Job 30:31

The High Mood:
“When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. __Henry David Thoreau

Why Should I Pray?


Ellen J. Barrier

Prayer is like a therapy, we get the opportunity to empty our entire being to our creator. At the same time we have confidence that he can resolve our problems. Prayer gives us courage, hope and strength. It also, helps us to have patience. It allows us to be aware of other people's feelings. Through prayer we become better individuals. The overall results of prayer and reading inspirational material, such as the bible, poems, and meditation, bring about peace that creates joy and happiness within us. We are able to view life situations and the future clearer. Therefore, our health is improved, because our mind isn't overloaded with stress.

The purpose of Prayer
Scripture: (1 Peter 5:7)
Casting all your care upon him: for he careth for you.

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more._ Anthony Robbins

Your Chosen Place, Rest or No Rest


Sandra Chapman

 A mysterious awareness is blowing in the wind,
It's exceedingly closer now than it's ever been,
Nature seems to comprehend the interpretation there within,
Something exciting and wonderful is just around the bin,
God's words of wisdom being proclaimed throughout the land,
Will the world stop and listen to God's truth being told to man,
From the beginning unto the end unfolding His amazing plan,
Genuine salvation, without measure He showed His love toward men,
We've allowed ourselves to think we don't need the Lord until when,
Ignoring the truth we settle for myths saying God doesn't exist,
This doesn't change the facts from the beginning God isn't amiss,
We've made ourselves become gods, we don't need him anymore,
What excused will the world give while kneeling before The Lord,
The Lamb's Book of Life then will be opened all names written therein,
Judgement to all great and small will your name be found there?

Your very words will condemn you, there's no turning back then,
What cries will be heard from men when being judged by Him,
It’s your choices were unwise without foresight to what was ahead,
Without sudden notice angels appear, swooping down with dread,
In the distance a new horizon something glowing in the dark,
The lake of fire indescribable awaits those who took the mark,
Kicking, screaming crying aloud facing unbelievable horrifying fear,

Anguish mourning's of people abandoned all hope who enter here,
You've determined your fate by decisions you made sometime ago,
Without hesitation the angels lets go dropping you in the fire below,
Eternal agony beyond comprehension forever without no ending,
The fearful, unbelieving, idolaters and all liars eternity descending,
The Righteous Judge's last invitation from the book of Revelation,
Spirit of bride say, Come, he that hears, Come, whosoever will come,
Your decision to make choose wisely before all happens above,
Unfortunately some will ignore God's warnings, woes, and his love,
Accountability we much face, consequences for consideration,
Tribulation, fire and brimstone, damnation your future accommodations,
You could have been forever blessed but you've chose this place of no rest,

The Just and Righteous Judge

Ellen J. Barrier


The Just & Righteous Judge (King James Bible; Psalm 82)
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
Arise O God, judge the earth:
for thou shall inherit all nations.

My Thoughts:
Those who sit in power, and use their skills to deceive, manipulate, and cause harm to others, will be judged by God, the one and only powerful source who has the authority over all nations and people to render his judgment upon those who have wrongfully treated innocent people; while they profited and glorified themselves in riches and wealth, and powerful positions through greed and pride, having no conscious of the evil acts they committed.

There are people who are homeless, hungry, falsely imprisoned, finances destroyed, because of wickedness that lies in places where justice should have been upheld. And there are others whose characters have been assassinated by lies. Innocent people have been killed because of hate. There are some cases that have been tried in our court system, that have allowed guilty people to go free. And there have been innocent people who have been found guilty by the same court system and imprisoned.

The leaders who sit in the temples of worship, committing sin and condemning others, have no shame and no conscious of the evilness they have committed against those who they should have held a high moral standard of spiritual leadership to follow; have caused many to turn away from religion, and those who follow their leadership to sin against God, and his people, while they continue to enjoy their luxurious life styles and high positions.

Spiritual leadership, is the head of our nations. When it is corrupt, the other leadership positions are deeply affected; this weakness that is at the top, enters into other leadership positions and become rooted and spreads throughout the justice systems and into every system and branch in society, corrupting the minds of our young and older people causing them to commit wrongful acts without a conscious.

Always Loving and Missing You

Sandra Chapman


Our first date was Feb. 5, 1989, Sunday,
Meeting you was like meeting a best friend for life,
We talked for hours on end enjoying each others company,
Your persistent personality won me over with laughter,
Only after two weeks of dating I fall in love with you,
You made it impossible not to love you with all my heart.

On this day Aug. 19, 1989 we were married,
Starting a life together meant a lifetime of love that was to last,
For twenty-one years, four months and four days of happiness,
My life with you was an honor, joy, and a blessing beyond compare,
People ask, "When is the honeymoon over between you two?"
Your replied, "Why should it ever end? I'm having too much fun."

Our love for each other was imperishable to the end of your life,
Our love will continue through to life everlasting with The Lord,
Above all miracles knowing we'll be together throughout eternity,
Not as husband and wife, but as brother and sister in Heaven,
For we are not given in marriage as we know it to be on earth,
Living eternity with The Lord is all we'll ever need.

For now I'm left here to carry on without you by my side,
It's hard to except this reality as the days continue on,
There are days when I cry uncontrollable because I miss you so,
The thought of not see you each day makes me feel weak-hearted,
The daytime hours aren't so bad but the nights are wearisome,
Adapting to grief with God's help has given me courage to go on.

The last time we spoke to each other was on courage to go on,
Not really understanding why at the time what was to be,
The dream I had didn't make sense to me until you were gone,
I’ll always remember your loving smile and those big blue eyes,
Your love for me show each day for twenty-one years plus,
Always loving and missing you to the end of time and eternity.

Religious Bullying


Ellen J. Barrier

Religious Bullying
The religious bully is one who is self-righteous. He or she feels morally superior above others. This is an individual who doesn’t feel guilt when having committed a sinful act. They sit in the seat of judgment against others according to their religious beliefs. They use certain biblical words to defend their position based on the way they believe things should be, that are contrary to common sense.
The religious bully is a danger to him or her own selves, and to others, because they place themselves in a position that they feel is godlike, and therefore, they are disconnected to God.
When the religious bullies start toting bibles and placing themselves in leadership positions, they become a powerful and evil force against society that is very dangerous, because out of their organizations hatemongers are reproduced. They don’t like anyone who disagrees with their philosophy.
The hatemongers desire is to destroy, and to harm those who they feel is unclean, or unworthy to exist.
The danger to these particular individuals and to others; they’re tuned in to a spirit that they believe is God, who is speaking to them and telling them the right things to do. Whatever they hear, they believe and there is no one who can convince their leader nor their followers that they are wrong..
What the Bible Says:
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
Romans 10:2-4
Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 7:21-23
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:  Matthew 5:22
