Step 5: Create Musical Memories

Music NotesSound is powerful stuff. It can trigger buried memories, pull emotions from our innermost being, lift us to the skies or drag us down into despair. Music can motivate us, comfort and soothe, and cause us to dance, sing, and celebrate.

That’s why music can play such an important role in helping people heal from grief, aiding your loved ones in the creation, preservation and recall of special memories of the wonderful times you spent together.

Compile a selection of special songs,  from your wedding night, the holiday disco, your anniversary, favorite songs and create a CD, iPod playlist or even have someone record a song you’ve written and leave it behind as a surprise gift that will help them remember those precious moments.

Alternatively, pick songs with positive, uplifting, motivational lyrics and send to someone who is suffering a loss, if you pick the right words, you can help someone remember that there is an end to their suffering and remind them to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!”
