Meet Cheryl Melody Baskin of Hopkinton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cheryl Melody Baskin.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Cheryl. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Recently, I have walked new paths: That of author of a motivational self-help book entitled, “Shift of Heart: Paths to Healing and Love” and have just released a new inspirational album called “Listen to the Whispers.” I have always followed my heart. As a result, I have taught music and creativity to children and adults, created and performed anti-bullying/inclusion concerts nationally, and I compose, sing and record -10 albums to date- 4 Healing and meditative albums for adults (Voice of the Angels-A Healing Journey, Lullabies of Live, Celebrate, and Listen to the Whispers) and the rest are for children of various ages. Every word in every song, story, meditation and now within my new book, “Shift of Heart-Paths to Healing and Love” is meant purposefully to uplift the human spirit, help people feel less alone, nurture self esteem, creativity and advocate for inclusion, compassion, caring, tolerance, peace within and on our earth, and most of all advocate for walking the path of love.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Many obstacles are within myself – resistance, fear of success and fear of failure, – but once I realized we are all perfectly imperfect, as my new book, Shift of Heart-Paths to Healing and Love says, I let go and step into each challenge I create. The challenges have been the dance between crisis in family at times, being a caretaker, etc and being able to be an archer with her bow anyways, and I have found when I honor my work of my spirit and my gifts, I am happiest. It isn’t about the money. It is something bigger than that- leaving meaningful words and music and books behind as a positive vibration in the world. I also have a Facebook group of over 600 called Shift of Heart- it is free and is my greatest impact for positive vibrations and support to one another. I stay up later, wake up, earlier and make sure that I have time for what nourishes my spirit and allows me to create songs, performances, books, plays, creating Vibrations that are positive.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My websites are and, as well as Melody. These sites explain all that I have created: a new book called “Shift of Heart- Paths to Healing and Love”- recently released and is a compilation of sharing some of the challenges of my life and the tools that I use to help me center. It is a book of encouragement, love, practical tools for navigating life’s challenges, a book of the heart to the heart, and I am most proud of releasing this book.

It is on Amazon, inspirational, positive, encouraging and is receiving all five star reviews. I also have created a musical version of this book recently and the album is called “listen to the whispers.” It contains inspirational power chants and songs, meditative reflections, life wisdom coaching, and is really a workshop and concert on a disc and a reflection of all the messages in my book. I am most proud of this right now, and even prouder that I listen to my heart and I’m not afraid to expand my definition of myself. I have been an educator in music movement and imagination for babies to reach five, I have also taught music at the elementary school level, I have created peace begins with you and me concerts nationally And in the inner cities, I created a play, a three act school musical play called peace begins with you and me as well; I have performed for adults nationally as well as for children, have lead large peace gatherings in song and in meditation, I performed in Oklahoma City after the bombing by special invitation in order to do a peace hope and healing concert for the grieving community there, I have taught classes to adults as well as children, been a keynote speaker, life wisdom’s coach, sound healer and now I am an author and continue to record albums-listen to the whispers is my 10th album

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Listening internally to my next steps, and suddenly there will be just the right call or opportunity as I was thinking and visualizing the idea! From getting my first job teaching, to recording my first album, to creating my new book and my newest album and the countless concerts that I have originated-all of this has been magical and is soon as I thought about it, The right calls, people and opportunities would show up.
