Sadhvi Sez: Bello Heals with Paradise Music


I’ve never wanted children or babies, or dogs or cats.  What with the gypsy life we led with no plans to settle down anywhere, it was a good thing that we both felt the same way.  We wanted to be in India, near our Guru, and we worked hard to be able to do that for years.  We were also so in love with each other that we didn’t want to share our time with someone else, even our own kid.

Then on Christmas Eve about 10 years ago, he called to say that he had a puppy.  He sounded so excited and I wished that I was.  I told him to put it back on the shelf and walk out the door.  No he said, it was a rescue from Madison County and it looked just like the dog that he had when he was taking care of the cows in the Swiss mountains.  I told him I was too busy with work, and he was too busy with roasting chestnuts on an open fire.  Who would take care of this new pet?

It turns out that “Bello”, our beautiful dog, was the best thing that ever happened to us.


We’ve gone on walks together for over 10 years now, and when “Bello” ran after that skateboarder a few weeks ago, and he was on the type of leash that stops at a certain point, he flipped over and damaged both of his back knees.  He has been having a difficult time walking since then and he cannot go on walks until he gets better.  It’s hard to see him limping and not his usual frisky self.

I threw out the leash (and suggest that you do the same if you own one) and decided that it just isn’t time for “Bello” to leave us.

I looked online to find some place to buy healing music, since “Bello” has listened to classical music since he was a puppy.  He was a biter, chewing up underwear, hand-knit wool socks, toilet paper, etc.  After a short time I found out that he mellowed out with music after his morning meal/walk.  He seemed to like YoYoMa a lot, especially the Bach CD.  He doesn’t like heavy metal music at all, by the way.

I found a site that has this huge selection of great music called Paradise Music.  Do you know about it?  The selection is pretty amazing (er, I mean, AWESOME!), with music for beauty, for sleep, for healing, and even for dogs.  I ordered the Relaxation Music for You and Your Dog, and also the Healing Gold.  They cost $12.95 and that even includes shipping, which was fast.

You can sample the CD”s by clicking, a feature that I like.

Paradise Music also has these greeting cards that are so cool, with a CD inside.  I got a few of those to send for Birthday’s.

They only cost $5.95 which is a great price since they are beautifully made and include a CD.

“Bello” has been listening to the Paradise Music CD’s for a week now, and I think he is getting better.

I hope to go for a walk with him sometime soon.



About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Bless you and Bello too. Hope Bello gets healed quickly and is able to hit the pavement with you again soon.

  2. well the chiropractic appt was a waste of money, except that Bello was jumping into the car, so I guess he is not as bad as I thought, or was he just excited to go for a ride with me? There is a brace out there that looks good…still debating whether it’s something that will help at $179 ( in the meantime, Bello listens to the Dalai Lama chanting healing vibrations…

  3. This is a beautiful tribute to the power of love our animals share. I hope Bello continues to heal himself and you.

  4. Bello is the cutest puppy I’ve seen in a long time! I am sending him lots of healing energy and reiki.

  5. Loved the ‘After the rain’ – enjoyed it so much for myself. Hope it will heal my knee and leg soon as I am missing my gambling life here in Vegas. Give Bello time and music and I am sure he will heal. He misses your long walks with him also – love you

  6. Thanks Nancy….I will get that type of harness for him…we are going to the chiropractor this morning…will let you know how that helps. Also just started to give him what Nirado recommended in one of the comments…the homeopathic help.

  7. Sadhvi, Rather than throwing the leash out, I would get him a harness which would protect his neck and distribute the pressure points. I ve also been taking one of mine for acupuncture with great results for the short term but not so much for long term but then she has different issues. It might help get him over the hump.

  8. Sadhvi, So sorry to hear about Bello. I hope he will soon be feeling better & that you can resume your walks with him. He’s lucky to have you for his “Mom”.

  9. Hi Marisa,
    I know, that was the first thing I asked Sakshi…did the vet take xrays?
    Even the vets are kind of out of touch.
    I will make an appt to do that.

  10. @Madir: yes, sweet Madir…you are right: I have loved him like my own son. And I always kind of thought that people who did that were a bit strange!

  11. @Nirado: thanks for this homeopathic tip: I use this type of “therapy” for myself, I can’t believe that I didn’t think of it. The vet is great that we have, but they are all just like the traditional doctor’s prescribing pain pills for injury. I already have an appt tomorrow with Faherty…thanks for your help.

  12. I’m a great believer in the power of music. We have a wonderful CD of the Dalai Lama – Chanting for Healing. I’d be glad to make you a copy if you’d like. Looking forward to checking out Paradise Music. Sending you healing thoughts and holding you and Sakshi and Bello in our hearts.
    Love and blessings, Pam

  13. I hope he feels better soon : (
    Prayers for a fast recovery. Any chance taking him to the vet for an xray just to be sure?

  14. Hi Sadhvi,
    I am so sorry to hear about Bello’s accident. Poor baby. I wanted to make a couple of suggestions that may help. A homeopathic remedy Ruta Grav in 30c potency can help with that kind of accident. Take 2 pellets and dissolve in 3 oz water and hit it on the heel of your hand 100x. Then give a dropperful 2x day for a couple of days to see some relief. If you do see some, drop it to once a day for a few more days. Also John Faherty chiropractor in town treats animals. He’s really great.
    Tell him Nirado sent you.

    I hope Bello is better soon.
