Healing Your Heart Day 14: ‘Imagine’

‘Imagine’ was sung by Emmanuel Kelly on the X Factor

Songs for Healing Your Heart- Transformation

In healing numerology, 14 is a deeper aspect of the number 5, which is the number of Transformation.

Transformation may sound easy but it’s not. Just like the caterpillar melts into a cocoon, and then the butterfly emerges, it’s a deep process.

Soul patterns are crucial to understand as they help us unravel the problems we face in our lives.

Did you have a trauma in your life age 5 or 14?

It could be the subconscious reason why you can’t move forward into the success and harvest time that the number 6 represents.

Emmanuel’s story of triumph over adversity

The song I have chosen today is ‘Imagine’ sung by Emmanuel Kelly on an audition for Australia’s X Factor in 2011.

Emmanuel was born in Iraq during war and placed in an orphanage with his brother. He was found by aid worker Moira Kelly and taken to Australia for surgery. She fell in love with the little boys and adopted them.

His dream is to be a professional singer.

He has extraordinary courage, a winning smile and sings from his heart.  Each time I watch, his story – and his performance – brings tears to my eyes.

After he sang this tweet arrived from Yoko Ono:-

“Thank you, Emmanuel. You sang beautifully! Thank you. John would have been proud of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Love, Yoko.”

‘Imagine’ Lyrics by John Lennon

Olympic Wrestlers USA and Iran 2012
Olympic Wrestlers USA and Iran 2012

Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today…


Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace…


You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one


Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world…


You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one

Moira Kelly is also the adopted mother of Iraqi-born brothers Emmanuel and Ahmed Kelly. The brothers, born with “severely underdeveloped limbs”, were discovered by Kelly in 1998 at the Mother Teresa Orphanage in Baghdad. Kelly brought them both to Australia for medical treatment and subsequently adopted them.

In 2009, Ahmed and Emmanuel Kelly became Australian citizens. Ahmed, a quadruple amputee and swimmer, represented Australia in the 50 metre breaststroke, 50 metre backstroke, 150 metre individual medley, and the 100 metre freestyle at the 2012 Summer Paralympics.

Emmanuel Kelly was a contestant on the 2011 season of The X Factor. He was cut from the competition on 11 September, 2011, “after forgetting the lyrics several times during his performance.”

Following his appearance on The X-Factor, he met with producers and auditioned for The Glee Project.
