What is Memorial Day, How is this different from Veterans Day, and What the HECK does any of this have to do with Sound Healing?
Well, Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of May to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the military.
Veterans Day is a day set aside to thank and honor all who serve or have served, both in wartime or peacetime, and whether they died or survived.
And now about that Sound Healing!
With the war brewing through the 1940s, there became more and more initiatives to help the soldiers continue fighting. With drafting numbers reaching close to 500,000, the Army along with other Defense institutions began to make military bands which would serve the purpose of boosting morale in the Home Front, while at the same time keeping Patriotism and Nationalism at an all-time high.
The point? Music is a fundamental part of our evolution. Its evolution tells the story of where we have been, and where we currently are.
Imagine being in the hostile situation of fighting for our country. Living in a space of uncertainty, gunfire, and death. Then, imagine that for a brief moment you close your eyes, take in the sounds of the military band and let it take you away somewhere, anywhere safe… this may be one way you use music, today. This is a form of Sound Healing.
Music has the power to excite, inspire, and motivate. And as we remember our fallen, we remember the music that brought pride, expressed anger, and instilled faith.
Sound is the release. The release is the healing.
See you at a sound bath soon!
