D-Day, A Day To Remember

06 June 1944

Those who fought, and died, to free Europe on that day altered the course of history.

The Allied Invasion

On 06 June 1944, during World War II, the Allies launched a massive landing on the beaches of Normandy in France. It became known as D-Day and it's a date we recognize and remember each year.

More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe.

This was no easy beach landing. The Germans were entrenched with strong fortifications. Initially, it was a massacre of Allied troops, but still they pressed on.

It was imperative to take those beaches at all costs. And for those who died that day, it was, indeed, at all costs.

The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops.

Present Day Awareness Of D-Day

Perhaps you are touched by the trembling fear and simultaneous bravery that must have surged through the troops as they landed. The sacrifice of human life that was required to take those beaches is immeasurable. Who will die? Who will survive?

Students of The Second Degree of The Radiance Technique® can direct to a specific event, such as the landing on the beaches in Normandy.

Another idea for directing: you could connect with individuals at Normandy. Maybe you know individuals in your family who were at the landing. Or, you can picture one of the soldiers who took part in the D-Day landing, even if you don't know his name. 

It's an opportunity to weave greater light into the situation, outside of time and space. Healing is still needed for all participants of the war.

Some of us are moved to sorrow by the plants and animals affected by the war. The earth itself bears the wounds of many bombings. 

You can direct radiant energy to plants, animals and the earth. We are a part of nature too, and we can bring greater healing to all living beings. 


You Make A Difference

Every drop of healing touches all of us, past and present. You are a part of the healing work.

On this day – D-Day – we honor those who came before us, for their willingness to step forward into the heat of the battle and for their immense sacrifice.
