Sound Healing with Meg Weldon
I am a strong believer that everyone has their own methods of escapism – something that helps to distract us from the crazy, sometimes unpleasant, stressful realities of life. It could be meditation, eating tacos, drinking bourbon, painting wildflowers or so many alternatives, but for me it’s live music. There’s just something about hearing your favorite song played live, with an unparalleled amount of energy in the air and your best friends by your side. It’s called “Sound Healing.”
There is plenty of research out there that proves music positively affects the autonomic nervous system that, in turn, improves our mental well-being and physical health (check it out for yourself, here). Not only this, but music has the potential to connect people in an extremely unique and powerful way. For those of you that don’t know me, I went to college with Stephen at the University of Wyoming and moved to Boston, MA upon graduating to further my career in Public Relations. You can imagine how hard it was for me to find my groove in a new, huge city. After months of feeling out of place, I went to a local show and met my people, the people I now can’t live without: my Rage Family. They changed my perspective on life, and taught me to always be kind and do what makes the heart happy. We live in an interesting and sometimes frustrating society (don’t get me started), but I’ve learned it’s most important to focus energy on the good, rather than dwelling on the bad. Life is too short to be sad.
Sometimes it’s hard to escape some negative aspects of life, but whenever you’re not feeling yourself, throw on your favorite song and dance – it’s the simple things in life J. If you need some musical inspiration, feel free to check out my latest playlist on SoundCloud: Fall 2018.
