The Moon Fork - Sleep, Movement & Manifesting

If people like a country’s music, it will be harder to demonize their people - as the enemy. For example, racism against black people declined in the end of the last century, when young people loved black rap music.

The people of Estonia, a small Romanian country, had been slaves for thousands of years. As slaves, they were demoralized. When the abusive Czars were shot, the Estonians saw their chance for freedom, but had no courage to seize the opportunity. In a country of only a million people, half of them sang nonstop for a week. The energy created from singing - realigned their “will,” determination and spirit. They rose up and boldly gained their freedom.

 

Shortly after Hitler took control of Poland, Russia overpowered the Romanian countries. Under Stalin’s rule about a third of Estonians were randomly forced to work in Siberia. Most died. This practice terrorized the people. Later, both Hitler as well as the Russians, enslaved Estonian men and forced them to fight against each other, with brothers killing brothers. Pain colored the Estonians with shame, once again, breaking the spirit of the people.

 

After World War II, the Russian occupation created harsh conditions, little food, no jobs, no places to live, but plenty of fear. When the communist regime fell, the Estonian people were again beaten down with no strength to gain their freedom.

 

Once again, the Estonian people came together with a song-festival for five days, with a half of million people attending. Afterwards, the Estonia people gained their freedom, crediting their courage to the energy created by singing. To this day the Estonian people hold a song-festival every five years.

 

Sound and music is chock full of hidden energy. Music is invisible, but its powers are greater than we ever dreamed of.
