website "Everything that we create with inspiration, enthusiasm and love, we can consider as spiritual art and music is one of its kinds. Music - is Three Dimensional Art " ...Emma Khodorovskaya - Medvedev
Channeled and performed by Emma Khodorovskaya-Medvedev.
The gift of channeling had changed Emma’s world completely and unexpectedly when 20 years ago she began receiving messages from above via automated writing. That was amazing and at the same time a scary feeling, recognition of existence of higher power, higher vibration, so evident through her “ conversations with the Universe ”.
By that time Emma was a professional musician and piano teacher, a graduate of Baku Conservatorium, Azherbajan who migrated to Australia in 1982. When Emma realized that she was chosen to channel and deliver spiritual messages to people, she collected them and assembled into separate volumes. Later on, she was able to publish those spiritual messages in her books “ Messages to Earthlings ”, “ Life on Earth is an Education ” and “ Creation of Love ”.
At the same time, her spiritual contacts were accompanied by heavenly music, enriching her piano skills, giving her freedom of improvisation playing “ white music ” which means using only white keys.
With sound like strings of Orpheus’ harp, without form and restriction, this new type of music is not sending us to any destination. It leaves us where we are now, at this particular moment with new and much more balanced and clear vibrations that could be felt on a cellular level.
Those vibrations created by inspirational music, affect and balance our biological vibrations. We become united with music, with the universe, which continuously sends us something special, something that makes us feel better and happier in our everyday lives.
Today Emma continues her professional career and has also become a spiritual counselor and Reiki Master. She projects positive energy to help others increase their positive vibrations and regain balance in body, mind and spirit.
My name is Antonina Kozhevets, I came to Australia from Belarus. All my life I loved sewing knitting etc. but honestly didn't have much time as had a very busy schedule as most of us brining up 2 fantastic daughters. After my retirement, I had a good understanding of the fact that I have plenty of free time and I can do exactly what I want and when I want. My soul friend and I joined a "Belarusian Social community/Club of Art and Culture for Ladies". All members of that club were the same ladies, of nearly the same age who wanted to achieve something in life being a pensioner. The club organized some events, exhibitions, meetings and concerts with some famous Belarusian writers, artists and others. Also, some of the members of our social club did organize presentations of their books, songs and poems, We also had some fantastic hand craft artists who organized their personalized exhibitions in different types of Hand made craft including different types of Embroidery and one of them was Ribbon Embroidery which took my heart. When I attended such an exhibition for the first time, I was so impressed with what I've seen and decided to learn no matter of what. I started to attend the classes to learn the techniques, bought few books, did my own researches and now I can't imagine my life without my hobby. The majority of my works are flowers, I couldn't believe that you can make such a beautiful pictures, and make flowers look alive with Ribbons. I love flowers, I love nature in general and every day I have more and more ideas of what I want to make and how. The ideas of my works come to my mind differently; Some of them I've seen in the kids books when I was reading fairy tales to my grand kids, birds I've seen in the forest, took the picture and made it. This is my life, my love and my Hobby, I am so happy that my works can make someone happy, bring a smile to someone's face and also my works can be a fantastic addition to any interior for any taste in any home. Sincerely yours, Antonina
