"Thank you for sending the information on the Erik Berglund CD's. I
went right out and bought one. The animals and I listen to it daily. Bob
the abused cat that I most recently rescued is now much more peaceful
and well adjusted. He sits on my lap as we listen to Erik's tapes every
evening. And we are both more relaxed and totally enjoy it."

cats just love it. I have been so inspired that I have purchased a harp
for myself and have begun to take lessons."
since you introduced me to Erik's music it is a constant in our home.
The animals in our sanctuary respond and are healed and even the outdoor

"Trixie was our dog, a small very affectionate and loyal (arenšt
they all) wee thing who trusted everything we did and followed
everywhere. The last year of her life was a time of upheaval and changes
for us. We have two daughters. The younger, Nicole was away at
university and then came home again, to Trixiešs delight, only to have
to leave again just as Trixie became more obviously ill. The other Tania
did not live at home but visited often. Trixie would get upset every
time she left after a short visit.
You may recall about 7 years ago you were in New Zealand and came to
Hawkes Bay. We met you then and purchased some of your CDs. Trixie loved
the music and would always come running back into the house to be in the
lounge whenever we played one of your CDs. (We always turned up the
volume so when she was out in the backyard she could hear it) She
especially loved Angel Beauty and when Seraphic Host came on she would
always sit write up by the speaker with the vibration going right
through her, no matter how loud we had the volume.
Trixie became ill. She was diagnosed with leukemia. In her last days she
was never happier than when we played your music for her. On her last
day, we had consulted with the vet and decided to have her put to sleep.
She was unable any longer to eat, drinking was a struggle for her and
she was generally miserable. Even with all her discomfort, she greeted
us whenever she saw us with a wag of her tail and a whimper (what once
would have been a smiling bark).
The vet came to us so she could be at home. Tania arranged to finish
work early and be with us with Trixie in her last hour. Nicole was away
and couldnšt be with us. In fact she had an exam the next day and we
did not even tell her until the next night, when she had finished her
exam. All day, after the decision had been made, our home began filling
with beings. The lounge was absolutely crowded with them. We played your
music for Trixie and perhaps that called the angels to her.
During the day, we spoke often to Trixie about what was happening, why
we had made our decision to have her put down. She looked at us with
total understanding and we like to believe, approval. We explained to
her why Nicole could not be with us and told her to go play with Nicole
in her dreams.
When the vet arrived we all gathered around Trixie. We played Seraphic
Host for her. She looked at each one of us in turn and then simply
closed her eyes while the vet injected her. The vet left quite quickly
and left us with her. We sat with her for a while until we realized the
room was quite empty, the beings had gone and had taken Trixiešs spirit
with them. We buried her in the backyard in her favorite sunning spot
and with her favorite toys.
It was one of the most moving experiences we have had. She was totally
at peace with dying and gave her permission for us to be at peace with
the decision we had made. Our belief is that your music helped her,
giving her immense joy prior to and during her illness. It certainly
called in the angels and other beings on her last day. We thank you
totally from our hearts.
It took me a few months to be able to play Angel Beauty again, until I
realized I was causing myself to miss out on beautiful memories and it
was not until I played it again that I truly began to heal.
And Nicole, when we telephoned her the next day, stated that Trixie had
come to her in her dreams that night, they had played on the beach and
in the bush, where Trixie loved to be taken. She said Trixie was full of
bounce and they had a lot of fun. So thank you Erik for your
wonderful gift to us all"

"Your 'Angelic Harp CD' is listened to almost daily. I never tire of it. Max, my 14 year old Ragdoll adores it. He lays in front of the sound and I see him relax with the softest look in his eyes. So, dear friend, know how you are appreciated and loved by all for your good works. Our tired world so needs the love and music by exceptional souls like yourself- you are top gun!"
