EMBRACING YOUR SACRED MASCULINE

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 08:49:35 +0000

Dear Friends, A quick note about current energies that are rocking and buffeting us around. My friend, astrologer Mark Dodich, posted in FaceBook that "a solar flare the size of Jupiter…has already sent energy out hitting Asia and Australia, so tune in energetically the next several days to see if it rattles your personal energy field." Well, it did! This was the piece of information I was waiting for, so that I could organize recent insights that my guides, Archangel Michael and Mary, have shared with me. Here they are, presented in the original channeled format. When Your Inner Child Becomes a King Insights on Empowering Your Sacred Masculine Archangel MichaelYou, representing the consciousness of humanity, are clearing ancient patterns relating to obedience and authority. To clarify: each human, animal and anything within your world of form contains both male and female essences. All of your visible world is created upon the principle of polarity, thus it is so. Your soul is both masculine and feminine. The spiritual interaction now and through the next several years is between yourselves symbolized right now by Jupiter, the obedient son who is readying to become king, and the Sun, symbolizing the observable and external masculine figures you have created in your culture and lives. The Sun is an embodiment of your Sacred Masculine qualities. However, at the present time the physical solar sun allows itself to be cloaked by your own consciousness. It is functioning as a mirror for what humanity believes the qualities of masculine ought to be. But that is changing! As humanity is readying to embrace the Sacred Masculine rather than its profane brother, the day-to-day 'power over others' masculine, the sun itself, as well as all the planets of your solar system (and regions of solar systems throughout your galaxy) are also changing. These celestial orbs are unburdening themselves of the cloak of the profane and arising into a rebirth that reflects elements of your original 'star-seed' creation. That is to say, the vibrations of Sacredness from which all of your visible world was originally brought into physicality are stepping forward more tangibly. And that which does not vibrate or find resonance with this original Sacred tone is jarring to hear and experience. Note from NormaI am being asked to share a memory that just popped into my mind: As a child I often spent hours onboard my parent's sailboat. Not often, but sometimes storms came up suddenly in the afternoon, and I would watch as the waves hit not just the boat but also struck and hit each other. The energy of the forward motion of the waves was nullified when they struck up against each other. However, these were the waves that were the highest, and also created the deepest troughs into which the boat would fall. This sort of sailing upon rough seas is happening to us all right now. Archangel MichaelConsider this: All that humanity has created, from emotions to beliefs to physical forms, exist as waves. All that humanity has created during a very long game of 'free-will' and 'polarity consciousness' are contained within a vast sea as a multitude of different waves. Likewise, the original tone or tones of Creation exist as a series of organized pulsating waves. As the energetic waves of the original Sacred Tone increase in volume, they are striking up against the waves created by humanity's prolonged exploration of consciousness. Long ago, in order to achieve this new polarized free-will consciousness, humanity, and all that exists within your galaxy, needed to release its ability to hear Spirit. And consciousness within this galaxy was successful! Something new happened as a part of the Creative Experiment. The energies that humans know as emotions flourished. Humanity's ability to generate waves of emotion that impact the entire galaxy became the focus of the cosmic experiment. The intensity and density of this emotional energy has created a new type of chaos, and possibility, for All of Crea[...]



WHO IS THE REAL DEVIL IN AMERICAN POLITICS?

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 21:04:24 +0000

(also published in the Huffington Post and Kindred Spirit (UK) American politics isn't about American politics. It's about the patterns behind our daily choices, the outdated beliefs we don't realize we still follow, and the shared conscious connections we have with our friends and family. Right now, American politics is putting on display what our culture is ready to look at. It is showing us what Americans need to make a choice about. We may choose to continue certain behaviors, or we may choose to change certain behaviors. But even the choice to continue certain behaviors will be made in a conscious manner because the American candidates and the 'circus of it all' is bringing these choices to our attention.  We are choosing between two distinct ways of living life. These two choices can be summed up as questions:      1. Is this what we really want?       2. Is this what we are willing to tolerate?  Our choice may well define American society for the next several decades.   That old adage of choosing the 'devil you know' rather than the 'devil you don't know' is at play here. What appears to be the 'devil we don't know' only looks devilish because we don't know it. As people living in a quickly changing world, our tendency is to choose the discomfort we know, rather than chance a greater discomfort within the unknown. Of course, this keeps us in a constant state of discomfort! But with this election we have the ability to make a choice, and to choose something new for ourselves. I think that we keep forgetting that if we choose something new, and it is uncomfortable, we can always make another choice. Restaurants hate it when we send food back, but it happens. We are allowed a do-over in other areas of our lives too. But we tend to fear trying something new. Our tendency is to assume that if we choose something new, (i.e. the devil we don't know), that it will be worse than our current circumstances (the devil we do know). Our fear of the unknown creates a belief that there will be pain in the unknown. Therefore we will not change. We fear the potential pain that we assume lies within the unknown more than we fear the known pain. Politics isn't about choosing a candidate. It is about each person making their own internal choice. Do you choose to tolerate the devil you know in your life? Or do you choose to answer the question 'What it is that you really want?' When we each answer that question honestly, I believe that our politicians will have to answer it as well.   ____________ Norma Gentile, sound shaman, uses music to magnify our innate ability to bring our bodies and lives into balance.

GROUNDING ISN"T WHAT IT USED TO BE

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 20:56:11 +0000

ear Friends, When I first began my spiritual journey, I began with the assumption that my Soul was perfect, and therefore lived outside of my body. It lived in Heaven. Heaven was then still defined in my world as some golden city floating in the clouds…more or less…but something that certainly did not exist or have anything to do with living here on Earth. Maybe it was just my community that focused on the aspect of wealth in its image of Heaven, but I decided as a young child that if the streets of Heaven were paved in gold, then I didn't want to have anything to do with it. No trees? No grass? No dogs to play with? Clearly, I was not yet indoctrinated into the ways of the suburban upper middle class! But my discomfort with my community's definition of Heaven encouraged me to search for my own definition. For me, Heaven is the expression of Life upon the Earth. From plants and trees and lush green moss to wild lions roaming the plains and tabby cats curled up in the afternoon sun…each is an example of Life, expressing itself as Heaven on Earth. As soon as I realized that Heaven is a quality of living which we each may create, my spiritual questioning gaze fell upon my concept of Earth. If being in Heaven is so desired that (according to my Christian upbringing) we must die in order to arrive there, what does that say about Earth? Clearly (again, according to my Christian upbringing) Earth is second best. Not that great of a place to be, compared to Heaven. No wonder I could not conceive of my Soul as having any connection to Earth! My Soul was perfect, and therefore would not deign to reside in the Earth, only in Heaven. And so my belief remained that I had a Heavenly Soul, but not an Earthly Soul. Until I met my prejudiced belief about Earth head-on. Was it shattered in one moment? Probably not. Or at least I don't recall it that way. There were a series of small moments over a few years. These took the forms of conversations and overheard comments with shaman friends. There were personal experiences during my meditation time, or while teaching and channeling, or singing. I found myself connecting to Nature energies in many different cities and countries as I welcomed their participation in healing endeavors. No matter where I was, I found myself consciously connecting and conversing with Nature Spirits in every workshop space, church, hotel room and even a few airports. I found the same loving acceptance of my queries to Nature's Intelligence about the relationship between Heaven and Earth as one might feel from a patient (but sometimes weary) teacher. "Earth is Heaven. Heaven is Earth. You (humans) are separating them into two things. They exist together, not apart. One does not choose between them. Your needing to choose is the illusion you have built. Nature does not live in polarity as humans do. Nature reflects polarity only because Nature expresses the consciousness of humanity. As humanity arrives at a point in consciousness that is outside of polarity, so too will Nature express itself in non-polarized physicality." Simply put, we create our reality. Nature acts as the translator between ourselves and our physical world. For example, are you thinking about painting a room a new color? You are (consciously or unconsciously) consulting the Nature Spirits and Intelligence of the room for their suggestions. Whether or not you follow their suggestion (that odd color that just caught your eye might be fun) is up to you. Below is a song (and spoken meditation) from a recent Gathering that focuses on helping you find your own soul's energy deep within the Earth. To say it will help you ground is overly simplistic, but yes, it will help you feel more grounded. In a larger frame of reference the spoken meditation and song assists you in releasing inhibitions and blocks around accessing the power and psychic intelligence that your body is meant to have. When we are connected to our Earth Soul as mu[...]

FEELING SAFE in a Turbulent World

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:53:18 +0000

Our lower chakras are underdeveloped and so not able to convey to us the psychic information that our body naturally receives. We have lost our ability to correctly interpret what our body is actually experiencing. In order to feel safe, we fall into habits that limit our expression out into our world. Fear, distrust, and not being able to make decisions are some ways that this manifests. This meditation offers you an opportunity to clear and reset your lower chakras, allowing your body to more easily connect into the nourishing energies and loving experiences that are possible in your life.

This meditation is about letting go of our brain’s need to control, and learning to trust that what is around us supports us. Even when it feels uncomfortable to us, whatever engages with us in some way serves the journey of our body and soul. Our personality’s insistence that something is wrong (or right) and must (or must not) happen is what moves us into polarity.

 

When we are functioning in this polarized state, it is very difficult to see options besides doing something, or doing its opposite.

 

There is an intelligence deep within our lower body’s chakras that does not function in a polarized manner. I see it as a unique quality of psychic perception lying primarily in the navel, 2nd chakra, and enteric nervous system.

 

When we are able to engage with it, information received by this psychic (or Spiritual) intelligence is able to move out of our lower body and reach our heart and mind. We oftentimes have clarity about deep seated issues when the information that has been received by our lower chakras is able to be transmitted to our heart and mind. For example, we can see options that were hidden from us when our only view was through the polarized lens of our overly busy brain. And because we perceive more options in a situation, we are able to address life issues in a very different manner.

The song included here is AVE GENEROSA, composed in the 12th century by St. Hildegard of Bingen. It is from Norma's album of sacred chants UNFURLING LOVE"S CREATION

This week seems to be about BOUNDARIES and our own Healing Journey. I thought it might be useful to share a few insights...and a new song, Wondering Quietly, from a recent Sacred Chant Gathering The Hero's Spiritual JourneyAll of us have areas of our life that we control out of fear. Recognizing when we are in one of these situations allows us to choose not to control the situation, but to welcome a new experience because of the situation. Oftentimes at the end of a healing session I will remind the client (and myself) that all those people in our life, especially people who may have been spoken about in the session, have permission not to change at all. The healing session is for the client, and the client has permission to change as much as their soul chooses to change. No one else needs to change in order for you to receive the healing energies offered during a session (or during meditation, yoga, etc.) and have profound change occur. Of course, our family and friends do sense when we are changing. And sometimes it seems that they will throw out a lasso, trying to pull us back into old patterns of drama and behavior. When this happens, it is good to remember a few things.     1. It's a spiritual pop quiz - are you really committed to changing? 2. Who do you want to have change with you? 3. Do you have permission to override their soul's choice not to change?   Bottom Line: If you are knowingly or unknowingly pulling anyone else along on your healing journey their energy will stop you from pursuing your own healing journey. That is one reason we often feel like someone else's energies, emotions or issues are in our space. Releasing the need to fix or heal another person is a major aspect of the Healer's Spiritual Journey.   In order to help release the energetic cords of connection between yourself and others I use the Four Questions for Healing that I have developed. Begin with the first question; ask yourself if all that you are feeling or noticing (emotions, thoughts, physical sensations) are really yours. This is a simple method to separate out the emotions, thoughts and even physical body issues that are truly yours, and those same issues that pertain to others. When you change, others may not feel safeWhatever shifts you are making are (ideally) offered out to all others as possibilities. The new choices you make are like little gift-wrapped treasures left on their front porch. When their soul decides to open the gift is not up to anyone but them. When there is a conscious or unconscious belief that your family or friends ought to change along with you it is like shoving the gift into their arms, whether they want it or not. Imagine how it feels to have anything, even a treasured gift, forced upon you! For this reason your change may even be perceived by others as being dangerous to them. Recognizing when you want someone else to change is a key to pursuing your own healing journey. The energy cords that run between us will alw[...]



POLARITY - ARE YOU IN?

That means the moon is at its closest for the lunar month, and typically at its strongest. We have learned how to energetically approach Full Moons that are also Supermoons. We have had a lot of those in the past few years! But this is happening on a New Moon. And you have probably noticed it in the past few days...It feels disconcerting. People look (to my psychic sight) to be very ungrounded. it is like we are each chess pieces, and we have picked ourselves up off of the board and are debating where to put ourselves down on the board. Of course this means we are choosing to potentially change how we relate to all the people and things in our life! And it is not an understandable linear change that we are making. For this reason many people are feeling stranded and unable to move forward. Clearing out what was (energetically) will help tremendously in seeing the next step. Please keep this in mind as you read (or listen) to the information below. And yes, I have Private Sessions available this weekend.   The opposite of a fact is falsehood, but the opposite of one profound truth may very well be another profound truth. - Niels Bohr For the past few months I have been fascinated by the obvious presentation of polarity in the world around us. And, I know the external events that present seemingly opposite extremes are assisting me to recognize Truth when it is wrapped in ways that I enjoy and don't enjoy it! An obvious example is playing out upon the stage of American political theater. As bizarre as American political events are, I know that the souls involved are doing all of us a great service when they model behavior and beliefs that reflect what we may be hiding from our own awareness. What we judge in others usually relates to an unresolved issue or experience that we feel arising within us. During the time that we are actively giving our attention to judging another, whatever is arising within us is squashed down, safely held under the threshold of our awareness. So with this in mind, I asked my guides what is being revealed to us spiritually in this American political season, and how does this help us to grow and mature, both individually and as a society? Here is what I heard:   from MaryCompassion allows us to see with Spiritual Eyes the potential evolution of any person or situation. Condemnation stops that process of evolution. It tells the person or situation they are bad/wrong, and encourages entrenchment. In this fashion polarities move more deeply into fixed positions, rather than resolving into something that neither side of the polarity could create on its own. Compassion for another tells them there are options and possibilities yet unseen. Using the quality of "I wonder…" allows life access to create and recreate anew within any situation. One of my mentor-teachers, John Friedlander, shared a concept from Niels Bohr, one of the first physicists to explore quantum mechanics. Niels Bohr was quoted as saying that the opposite of any Great Truth is also true. This, to me, implies that Great Truths, as Niels Bohr called them, ex[...]



HEALING FROM WITHIN POLARITY

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 19:57:43 +0000

THE GIFT OF HEALING; How and Why we use Polarity in our Lives. As long as we have physical bodies here on Earth, we are creating within polarity. Our bodies are perfect examples of this polarity; organs that exist on both left and right sides, a brain with two hemispheres, and of course our upper and lower 8th chakras. We are designed to grow in our understanding of polarity while incarnate. Only by entering fully into polarity can we encounter our next step. When we resist this process, we may become disenchanted with our life, feeling sluggish and uninvolved; or we may spiral out of our bodies, feeling euphoric but disconnected from what surrounds us.

This meditation will assist you in becoming aware of the issues that you may be avoiding, and provide you with a nurturing safe environment in which to consider them. Here your guides and angels are present. Notice insights and ideas that may occur to you. These will be how you address your life issues. This is a time for you to choose how you desire to move forward.

This meditation includes two songs, improvised during healing events. For more of Norma's music see iTunesAmazon.com or her website Recordings page.

REFLECTION

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 08:17:10 +0000

Healing entails noticing the obvious. We cannot change or heal what is not already seen and understood.  Just as you don’t put a bandage on a wound that you don’t know exists, we cannot emotionally or spiritually heal what we don’t see and understand. For this reason what is brought up into our human consciousness is usually a reflection of what we, individually and as a society, have decided to learn about, change and heal. Having a publicly visible event (such as the recent weather patterns) or an individual person stand as an example of what is ready to change helps bring the energetic patterns behind the related issue into view. When someone or something stands at the forefront of our shared human attention, the pattern that they represent becomes much easier to see.  In the western world we are healing narcissism and the many related behaviors (such as anger, violence and fear) that our American society has embraced as normal.  Remember, we can only heal what we see and understand.  What better way to do that than by placing people who demonstrate our wounds, and reflect what we need to heal, in public prominence?   HOW THIS WORKSPerhaps because of the recent floods my guides were giving me ideas of how we heal issues using the metaphor of rain. In my experience one needs rain in order for a rainbow to become visible.  The water droplets that light moves through in order to create a rainbow are already hanging in the air, but must be intensified in order to be seen clearly by our human eyes.  So too events in the larger world may serve to intensify and bring our personal inner issues more clearly up and into our awareness.  That is what I believe is now happening within the arena of American politics.  Anger, greed, fear and all the other bedfellows of narcissism are creating a huge storm. And this emotional storm is being brought into the physical world as well.  Emotions that are not expressed by humans eventually do affect the physical land. What many of us are realizing is that reacting with anger, or even seemingly justifiable indignation, merely feeds the emotional energies of the political storm.  How can each of us let the raindrops fall without covering our heads out of fear or anxiously batting away at the raindrops? By remembering that for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And we are in charge of our individual reaction! Fear, violence and hatred are only useful to those wielding them if there is someone who will respond. For those on a journey of reflection it is possible to consider what a neutral response might be. I imagine this in two ways. First as a tennis game. When I feel a ball of anger coming towards me, I simply don't return the ball. Angry words don't need to be responded to with more angry words. Rather, I imagine the words or action as being a tennis ball that has been hit over the net into my side of the court. In my mind's[...]

Spiritual journeys often mean that our outer self becomes more translucent; allowing our inner sacred self to be what is seen by the world. Of course that also means that our inner sacred self is interacting with the outer, sometimes not-so-sacred world. And it can be a difficult and uncomfortable experience when our heart opens in a sacred manner and feels the non-sacred emotions and doings of the outer world.Most of us learned as infants to shield ourselves from what we experienced as harsh energies from the outer world. As adults we journey over and over again between our safe sacred inner self and our outer world. With each journey we reclaim our own power to create the roads and bridges that link our inner sacredness with our outer world. It may seem like an endless process, and perhaps like a process that has no effect on the outer world. But every so often we re-create enough connective bridges with the outer world that we notice something changes.The three healing songs below lead you through this type of journey. The first song is our preparation for a journey; packing what we love, feeling the safety and security of where we are, and yet there is a longing for what is beyond the known, and our inner sacred self calls us to act upon this longing. The second song is the journey itself. Sometimes easy, but also at times unsettling. What we believe to be true may not be true. What was once firm ground may no longer be safe to stand upon. If we do not question ourselves and our world, how are we to ever change? This second song is the journey into the unknown, which is made known in the third song. As we reach the journey's conclusion we build new bridges to the outer world. And we start by noticing that we are not where we were in relationship to the outer world. Did we change, or did the outer world change? Perhaps it is both.The consciousness of our own inner sacred self is energetically shared with each member of humanity. Not only does our change affect others, but the choices others make affect us. Have you ever felt a soft calming wave of energy come into your heart when you are not engaged in a spiritual endeavor? Or perhaps, suddenly thought of a beloved teacher or mentor, poem, or song? We are all connected. As others in this vast world make choices to honor their inner sacred self we each are blessed with their choice. And of course, as we each honor our sacredness, that reminder is like a quiet bell tha[...]

This is needed so that there is an energetic container surrounding you into which your body and personality will feel safe to release what is no longer yours. In my experience the energies that make up what is no longer yours each have their own consciousness. We, as humans, tend to say 'there is consciousness in all things', but we seldom apply this to energies that feel disturbing or troubling to us!After the invocation you hear me talking to each of your chakras, and a few other areas of your body. I go step by step through a release and re-setting process. During this process you are apt to have memories, odd body sensations and emotions arise. Be assured that this indicates energies within your body and aura are on their way out. Sometimes we are tempted to stop the process of release because initially we re-experience the discomfort of our initial wounding (or meeting) with an energy. I encourage you to keep listening…Remember also, that each issue has been with you for (probably) years, perhaps decades. It might take more than 40 minutes to resolve it! This meditation is meant to loosen up whatever your soul and body are ready to release. Your personality is along for the ride. So your opinion about how fast and how easy healing should be is most likely coming from your personality, right?After the spoken releasing segment I offer a healing song, improvised in the moment with a Tibetan singing bowl. This is where all the newly empty space that you created by releasing is allowed to recharge and refill. During this time your body and soul generate energies that match the quality of consciousness of where you are now. This is crucial. Here is when your body and aura are filled with energy that reflects your physical body and your soul's journey now.Without refilling ourselves energetically it is easy to feel a void in our body or in the space around us. We feel lacking of 'something', and misinterpret this as being too empty. We are tempted to simply invite energies similar to the old energies to fill us up again. Now, clearly this is a simplistic metaphor. Psychically we feel our own energies and the energies of our guides and angels as being so perfectly in tune with us that they feel just like us. It's like we are surrounded by still clearness. Most of us are used to being weighted down by energies that are not us. We take for granted that there is always discomfort, motion and movement pressing in around us. So when we release what is not really our energies it can feel like we are too empty. But in reality we are simply feeling what it feels like to feel only our own energies in our own body and aura.Trust that a[...]

It is easy to say 'in order to change your life you have to change.' Actually knowing what that first step of change might be is hard. Sometimes we don't even know which way we want to change! Just that what we are doing now isn't what we sense we need to be doing in the future.This sense of 'not being who we are meant to be' is intensified by the last of three SuperMoons (October 26) along with our entering into the window of (this year's very potent) Winter Solstice. My sense is that whatever quiet times we have this autumn means we simply aren't able to see the movements that Spirit is making in our lives and within the Earth.Not surprisingly one of my guides, Mary, helped create a new audio meditation FIRST, BE STILL which assists in the decision making process. This meditation brings you to a point of stillness where you can comprehend what the next step might be in your life. This meditation can be used simply to find a deep stillness within yourself, or to assist you in making small (or large) decisions about changes in your life.

3 GREAT FREEDOMS - Insights from Mary, through Norma

Things and people that I stopped interacting with months, years and even decades ago have returned to my life.As I look out at friends and even world events, it is as if concepts that we engaged with months, years and even decades ago have returned. We have collectively hit a giant 'reset' button.Hitting the reset button: Restarting cycles with people and situations that you thought you had left behind A Note from Norma:As many of you know I often use a method of 'blended channeling' when receiving ideas and information from spiritual beings. This means that in order for what they are sharing to apply to our world, I need to provide the human side of the equation. From time to time they want to express ideas with which I don't have enough familiarity. Such is the case with this section of text, and so my friend, Stephen Rassi, (PhD, LMSW) offered me a bit of informal history, which I include here for those interested. Let me illustrate this with one of the many issues that are now returning as visible current events. The various socio-political equality movements (such as race, gender, sexual orientation) from the 1920's arose again in the 1960's and are clearly visible today. This time the transgender community is at the forefront. In the 1960's the African American community led the movement for equal rights, which in turn fueled the movement known as Women's Lib, and also led to a raising awareness of (what was then) the gay male and lesbian rights movement for those falling outside of the traditional binary system of sexual orientation and gender. However, the gay and lesbian movement of the 1970's that I encountered at college was rarely inclusive of people who lived as transgender. "In the 1970's the movement encompassed "gay male and lesbian", then they added bisexual and started to call it GLB, then moved the L to the front to reflect the additional oppression that lesbians faced so it became LGB, then added the T in the 90s (LGBT). Now some people call it TBLG because of the additional oppression and invisibility that the T and B groups face." For me this perfectly illustrates the motion of waves working repeatedly in small motions upon the grains of our understanding of this area of our cultural sand. The current movement now more fully includes a call to honor equal rights for all regardless of one's gender identity and sexual orientation (LGBTQ). I have to admit, at some point this 'alphabet of equality' will reach a point of needing a single phrase…as I do anticipate our exploration and subsequent re-defining of sexuality and gender identity or expression will continue to deepen. According to Stephen: "There appears to be a single phrase emerging that encompasses all of t[...]

During this time (the last week of July through mid-September) our physical bodies as well as all that surrounds us feels a magnification of our Divine Father's presence. Each year this presence offers a process of remembrance of our own ability to reflect our personal aspect of the Sacred Masculine. As a result, the Sacred Masculine within ourselves and our world is slowly re-awakening.Our honoring of the Divine Feminine, referred to as the Grail Chalice, makes it possible for our world to receive this annual influx of Sacred Masculine energy. During this time of the portal it is important to remember that stillness, reflection, self-nourishment and compassion serve as means of generating a stronger Divine Feminine chalice into which we receive these Sacred Masculine energies.  From my audio meditation REVEALING SPIRIT:Deepening Your Trust in Spirit and Revealing Your Natural IntuitionTRUSTRelaxing and truly opening to spirit, whether it be Heavenly spirit or Earthly spirit, requires trust. This is not a quality that we have learned much about in our daily lives. Trust requires first knowing ourselves. Trust requires knowing our bodies, the vibration of our bodies, and our emotions. When we trust in our own competence to know ourselves, it becomes easy to feel and to know when what surrounds us is either in tune with us or not in tune with us.As my guides remind me often; "When you do not focus upon that which is not in tune with you, you do not feed it. It will seek its nourishment elsewhere." This is true of people, patterns and behaviors. In past years I have noticed that this flow of Sacred Masculine energy intensified the chaos of non-sacred actions. Especially actions taken out of fear. This year I expect world events will make this very clear. This is a time to identify and address behaviors and underlying energies in our lives that are no longer comfortable.Here are a few thoughts from myself and Archangel Michael:When we seek to maintain something in our lives that is no longer part of the journey that our soul desires for us, we hold ourselves back from embarking on the next step of our journey. I think the hardest things to let go of are unrealized dreams or ideas that we never had the chance to fully develop.Releasing old to-do lists is vital to being able to follow our soul's journey now.In order to do this, we need to spend a few moments recognizing and releasing all those potential new idea that we considered, but are not going to pursue right now…that's why they were potential ideas. All too often we confuse a potential idea with a firm urging from our soul, and move the potential idea onto our to-do list. It is not a failure to release[...]

WHEN THINGS CHANGE

More info on that follows the essay, along with new healing songs. You may also want to check out the re-release of my album of healing chants by Hildegard of Bingen. This album, Unfurling Love's Creation, is on sale at my website until June 30, with free shipping in the US / Canada, and $10 flat-rate shipping world-wide. Listen to a song now, and see the link in the banner above to order.When Things Change (but you don't want them to)Change is inevitable. One Mystery School taught me that change is life. Whatever is alive lives because it is infused with its own Spirit. As that Spirit moves, there is naturally change and growth. Therefore change is a symptom of being alive.Certainly I understand that when Spirit moves through me, or the plants in my garden, or my frolicking cats, things happen. Some of those things are simple; plants grow, cats play and I sing. Other results of the movement of Spirit may be more complicated.We feel, know and respond intuitively to the movement of Spirit through us. Yet, when this movement brings about discomfort, we often attempt to block that change from flowing into our lives. Our emotions, thoughts and physical body become rigid, much like a concrete dam that we erect energetically to stop the flowing water of Spirit. But as Spirit moves ever more strongly in the people and circumstances that surround us, we must focus more and more of our own strength to stand firmly against what we perceive as being 'wrong' for us.It can be difficult to remember that this change we perceive as threatening or uncomfortable has arrived as a result of the flow of Spirit. Anything that arises of out the movement of Spirit has certain qualities. One quality is that it will continue to change and be transmuted so that it reflects our soul's journey.Therefore the form we find uncomfortable now will continue to be acted upon by Spirit.But in order for this to occur we must understand our resistance to change. Why are we thinking the thoughts we are thinking about this particular change? It is one thing to comprehend that resistance only makes the change more difficult. But it is a gift of Grace when we understand why we are choosing to resist, rather embrace, that which is changing.As conscious Beings we say that we desire to give the flow of Spirit greater and greater permission to work through us and out into our world. When we become aware of areas of our life where we are resisting change, we have the opportunity to open ourselves even more deeply to Spirit. Then, we allow Spirit to act upon what has already changed, whether we are enjoying the changes or not. In other words, that which our personality resists is something that in all likelihood will not last. The more quickly we cea[...]



TIPS FOR DRIVING YOUR RACE CAR (OR VW BUG): How to more easily navigate current world energies

The guide who inspired this essay (and the song) makes the point that all beings, both humans and angels, are affected by and witnessing this unfolding of events.       from Norma's Hathor guide Atamira Even if you don't know why, it is perfectly normal to feel a sense of gratitude, and perhaps even tears of relief during the healing process. All that you are as a soul and who you are as an incarnate being drew to yourself patterns to explore and learn from in this lifetime. And many of these patterns are no longer needful. Likewise, the guides and angels that assisted you to follow those promptings of your soul have completed their task. You have learned so much in this lifetime and your soul knows best what the next explorations will be.Certainly at this time in the planet, there is a unique opportunity for those of you in form to explore things that simply will not be available to you again. And despite how you look upon the chaos and the violence that results from your current explorations, your soul looks upon all these things as opportunities.This point in time has a metaphor in your reality. It is somewhat like the type of car you decide to drive. You can choose to drive a powerful racecar that uses the high energies of this time frame as high-octane fuel. Or your soul may decide that a VW Beetle is just fine. It's maximum speed may be only 60 mph (the ones Norma grew up with), no matter the power potentially available in the high-octane gas, and that's just fine. But some souls say, "wow, look at the possibilities!" and they simply must go for that 300 mph potential of the racecar. "Let's get something that can really move on a straightaway!"This soul sees possibilities. This soul says, " I haven't explored this yet. I haven't a sense of what happens when I drive so fast." And so the soul looks out and begins to create a lifetime with (from the soul's vantage point) spectacular possibilities of new experiences. These souls decide that they want to drive that 300 mph racecar in life. Other souls say, "We'll be in the grand stand. We'll be the observers. We'll be the ones standing still." This is equivalent to holding a sacred space in healing.       from Norma For those of us* who are standing still and holding space, for those who are feeling that sense of deep stillness, know that we are simply the observers; the witnesses to those souls that are taking advantage of the incredible power that is available on the planet right now. It seems counter-intuitive to say that as we simply hold space with neutr[...]



MELTING THE BOULDERS OF YOUR BELIEFS: Transforming painful Life patterns.

But there is a lunar eclipse sneaking up on us on April 4, and I believe it is the more important of the two. While most people are not paying much attention to it, this next eclipse is surrounded by potent astrological alignments that open a three-week portal of time which can help us change direction in our lives.Simultaneously, I am re-releasing my CD Unfurling Love's Creation. This music creates sacred space based on the Divine Feminine within Nature, and supports deep stillness. See below for special pre-release pricing and free shipping of autographed copies.     Total Lunar Eclipse of "Blood Moon", is on Saturday April 4, 2015more info hereJoin me for a phone meditation that same day at 1pm EDT (10am Pacific) From time to time, due to astrological alignments, we have the opportunity to move difficult, intractable underlying life patterns into a cosmic stream not unlike the flow of water from a faucet. These next few weeks are one of those times.My guides say it is like when you put your hand under a faucet with the water running; you can easily re-direct the stream of water with very little effort. The water is already in motion, and you are simply encouraging this motion to move forward or back, to the right, or left.This is from Archangel Michael: Imagine a habit, lifelong issue, or experience that you have had over and over. It feels like an immovable boulder. Now imagine what might happen if that boulder were to begin to melt? You might say 'Oh yes, now I can shrink it, or let it melt away completely, or reshape it'. But will you? While our personality will promise to take advantage of the potential for such fundamental change, other factors can limit or undo that promise.We may limit how much we take advantage of moments of change in our life, not only by our personality's beliefs, but also because of spiritual contracts we have made with our soul. Very often there are energetic patterns available to our soul only here and in this moment on Earth. Until the soul has learned all that it needs to learn about this pattern, we are unable to escape from it or alter it. The saying 'the only way out is through' aptly applies to these patterns.But there is hope for changing even these patterns!As anyone looks deeply into their experience of a long-held pattern, they see the pain and discomfort as well as the blessing that it has brought them. Most often, we feel the pain, and assume that is all it has to offer us.But our soul only draws into our lives patterns that have aspects we experience as both positive and negative. Because we have experienced the painful aspect of a pattern over and over again we assume that the pattern is 'bad' and must be c[...]

One insight I experienced and incorporated into my practice is that we connect with spiritual energies not just in the upper dimensions, but also in the lower dimensions. In Western cultures, we exalt and respect the heavenly realms, but honoring the spiritual energies contained in the lower dimensions is something new. In doing so, I believe that we honor the "other half" of the healing process. My guides have shown me that when a soul decides to incarnate into this world, it clearly invokes aspects of itself from both the upper and lower dimensions. In other words, our soul is actively multidimensional. Deep healing occurs when we align with the energies and aspects of our soul that are present within all of the dimensions.      WE ARE CHANNELS FOR SPIRITUAL ENERGYSince we are here in the third dimension, our bodies act as conduits for energies to pass from the upper dimensions downward and the lower dimensions upward. I have spoken about the personal aura as being about 6 feet across. If you stretch your arms out, your personal aura extends a few inches beyond your fingertips. What is newly emerging is our access to a much larger portion of our aura, the Unity Sphere. This sphere is about ten times larger than our personal aura.       The Personal Auric Sphere contains the first seven layers of the aura. It relates to our life here and now; this incarnation and physi[...]



YOUR CHOICE POINT

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 05:14:58 +0000

Inviting the energies of our shared human consciousness, along with the presence of Archangel Michael and Nature, we open a portal in this meditation for transmuting painful issues into learning experiences.  The moment we recognize the gift of wisdom that an issue has brought us, we stand in a place of compassionate honoring of the people, beings and energies that helped us create the issue. This honoring, along with gratitude, allows us to truly release ourselves from continuing to recreate the same painful lessons over and over again in our life.

I included an improvised song of mine, Transition, from my Hathor guide Atamira, who also provides a portion of spoken meditation after the song.  For more information on my music, as well as what else I offer, please see the Sound Healings or Recordings pages of my website healingchants.com.

They have not been altered. Blessing All Beings Homeward During a recent concert a friend offered to take 'energy photos'. As I sang, the camera captured brilliant white as well as somber, brown-black swaths of energies. Multiple white and green orbs also appeared, especially in the midst of a healing song. My sense is that the orbs represent new qualities of consciousness; they are the result of dark energies moving on, wherever they needed to be. The brilliant white streamers are those guides and angels who were helping to escort other energies homeward. More pictures from the same concert, taken during other songs Larger Version Larger Version For those of you new to my work, I am both a professional singer (with bachelor and master's degrees in music) and a channel (having studied with the Seth channel John Friedlander and worked for many years with Drunvalo Melchizedek, from whom I recognized both Thoth and Archangel Michael's presence in my life). Combining my ability to see spiritual energies with my musical expertise has been a lifelong journey. For this reason I call myself a sound shaman. In most of my Meditation Concerts I prepare some songs and expect to channel or improvise others. Those who attend bring with them various life issues and concerns. We are more alike than different, as I find that frustration and anger, longing for deeper intimacy and a feeling that something is 'not right' are feelings everyone seems to have at one time or another. During a concert, these feelings and their related energies arise from within those in attendance and create a tangible pattern within the room. These are the darker swaths of energy visible in the photos. These darker energies are not bad. We simply interpret them as looking dark or feeling heavy or scary because they are no longer vibrating in tune with our body's and soul's journey.

The time of the Winter Solstice and the turning of the seasons naturally draws us into our inner world. Here, if we allow ourselves to enter, our life issues are calling to us for some reflection. I find there is a growing stillness within my own body and the Earth that allows my own insights to deepen during this time of year. I find my body wants to sink deeply into meditation, and receive the natural energetic nourishment available to it from the Earth. Over many years of living I have found that meaningful healing and personal growth entails both releasing the old and embracing something new. The change of seasons invites us to recall this simple truth. A recent meditation that I led focused upon this very theme, and I offer a part it in this newsletter.  This is from the audio meditation, Embrace the New by Releasing the Old. To listen to the complete meditation (which includes healing songs) click here. The Essence of Your Soul within the Earth is Your Greatest HealerOver the past several decades, certain Earth energies have been arising in my awareness. These Earth energies reflect the essence of the soul incarnating within each of us. Each soul present today entered into the process of creation on this planet millions and millions of years ago, when our reality began to take physical form. At that point in time, the essence of your soul said "Yes, I want to create with other souls. I want to create something that does not yet exist." And your soul continued to say "Yes", at other crossroads. "Yes, I will enter into this project now as a being that lives, moves and has consciousness within this creation. Yes, I shall walk upon the Earth as a soul among other souls, knowing both Spirit and physical form."   from MaryWhat makes those incarnating upon the Earth unique is that a drop of your soul's essence lives within the Earth herself. That essence became charged and enlivened to the point where It became the basis for your physical form here on Earth. That essence of your soul, deep within the Earth, is what says 'yes' when your heavenly soul wants to incarnate. That essence of you within the Earth helps to balance your physical body, and brings your soul and physical body together in their unique embrace. What is it that keeps the soul in the body? It is this. This drop of your own soul's essence within the Earth generates a specific frequency that binds your soul into your body. As the quality of this frequency is more tangible, then those nourishments that your soul would love for your body to experience are easily present in your life. Who[...]



EMBRACING THE NEW BY RELEASING THE OLD

Nourishing Yourself for what is Coming Next.            In responsibly releasing patterns out of our space, letting them move to wherever they need to go to now, we are also stating to all the energies interacting with us that we are ready for an update and upgrade. We are ready for something that nourishes us now—not something from ten or more years ago, but that which reflects our soul’s journey now.   - Your Role in Stewarding Energetic Patterns Homeward - Your Awareness can affect Weather Patterns- Your Ability (and Responsibility) to Release what no longer Serves- Invocation of Sacred Space- Your Questions Heal Yourself and Your World- Your Brain and Healing (don’t always mix well)- Nourishing Yourself for what is Coming- The Essence of Your Soul within the Earth is Your Greatest Healer   - Unlimiting How much Energy We Receive - What is Your Next Step?  How will You Know It? - Some Results of this Meditation - Releasing from Sacred Space - Why Release Angels and Guides?

Turning Chaos into Creation:

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:57:15 +0000

(essay) Using your body’s innate spiritual wiring to naturally release and redirect potentially destructive energies.       Dear Friends,Each year during the month of August our planet is bathed in Sacred Masculine energies emanating from the Sirian Sun. Each year this process intensifies, as the alignment during this new Aquarian Age allows more and more of this masculine energy to be available to us. While it enters at a sacred vibration, we as humans can translate it’s quality into profane or sacred actions here on Earth.  As my guides point out, we have Free Will.  Whether we choose to express this masculine energy as profane power or sacred creation is our choice.Thus it seems very timely to share this particular healing meditation now, as external world events are bringing up equivalent chaotic emotions within each of us. I believe this can be seen as a process of finding within ourselves those beliefs, emotions and behaviors that we have outgrown, but perhaps not fully acknowledged and released.  As always, it is easier to see this process external to ourselves in our friends, family or world events.  But healing only happens when we each reveal and address those same aspects within ourselves that are ready to change.Below is a written essay, based on an excerpt from this new audio meditation. You can listen to the meditation by clicking the link below in this newsletter, online at my website (Podcast Page) and at iTunes (under Podcasts, then enter my name, Norma Gentile).  The full edited transcript can be read hereListen Now to a Sample:   All Energies evolve, change and move according to their own innate consciousness Included in the meditation are two songs, from my collection of sound healings for the energies of each upcoming month.

Grounding is actually allowing your physical body and soul to re-access and reestablish the connection into the Earth energies that you already have. At birth our body has its full grounding into our soul’s energies within the Earth. We see that as the brightness in a child’s eye. It’s not just Heavenly spirit; it’s Earthly spirit that nourishes that brilliance and unconditional love within our eyes. While within the womb, each of us creates some amount of energetic tether into Earth, and that is what draws our heavenly spirit into our gestating body.I’ve spoken before about the Earthly soul. That is simply a way of saying, if we exist in the upper dimensions and in third dimension, we are not just a drop dripping downward from Heaven. We are also a geyser, a fountain, moving up from the Earth. And, in that moment of conception, our Heavenly soul and Earthly soul have met. Does it not make sense then that throughout life, our journey is to continue to a[...]



TURNING CHAOS INTO CREATION

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:20:08 +0000

(audio meditation) Using your body’s innate spiritual wiring to naturally release and redirect potentially destructive energiesLife issues, physical pain or discomfort are simply reflections of the fact that who you are and who you aren’t cannot take up the same energetic space inside of you.  How do we maintain our own inner peace when the world around us is spinning more and more into a state of ongoing, seemingly non-stop chaos?. Each of us has our own tools and we are developing new ways to reach and maintain that quiet space within ourselves. This is essential, especially when surrounded by turbulent events.  Here is one of those new ways; utilize the stability of your soul’s unique and ongoing communion with Earth and the Pure Energy of Nature to awaken from deep within your body it’s own remembrance of stability and your innate inner peace.        - Maintaining inner Peace amidst Chaos  - Nature and Archangel Michael  - Our ability to sense the unconditional quality of love that we associate with divine beings has to do largely with the state of our own energy field or aura.  - Our bodies have come from Earth and been potentized by Spirit.  - All Energies evolve, change and move according to their own innate consciousness  - Revealing the preexisting condition of grounding within each of our bodies. Clearing deep trauma from your root chakra and pelvis  - Navel Chakra; Your Pranic Sphere of Brilliant Clear light  - Reconnecting Your Heart into Your Own Energies within the Earth  - A newly emerging chakra – the lower 5th chakra For more info see the Podcast Page at HealingChants.comFor more of the music you here in this meditation, see Recordings and Sound Healings   1. Introduction: Maintaining inner Peace amidst Chaos How do we maintain our own inner peace when the world around us is spinning more and more into a state of ongoing, seemingly non-stop chaos?. Each of us has our own tools and we are developing new ways to reach and maintain that quiet space within ourselves. This is essential, especially when surrounded by turbulent events.  Here is one of those new ways; utilize the stability of your soul’s unique and ongoing communion with Earth and the Pure Energy of Nature to awaken from deep within your body it’s own remembrance of stability and your innate inner peace.     2 Sacred Space Invocation: Nature and Archangel Michael The energies of Nature have been part of the planet for a very long time, much longer than humanity. Responding to the desire of the soul we know as Gaia, the Pure Energy of Nature and the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences assisted in forming the planet Earth herself. They can reflect to us their level of unconditional love. Our physical form, of course, resonates to them, as each cell of our human body is created out of the Earth’s physical elements. And in this resonance, we remember the stability that we know is also within our own physical bodies. Here is one way to find stability in chaos.   When this truth is understood many people recognize their body’s resonance to Nature and Earth deep within their naval. Other people experience an expansion within their heart. Some people feel an awakening throughout their whole body.   T[...]

QUALITIES OF HEALING

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 22:32:01 +0000

Consider how you are asking for guides, angels and energies to assist you. The back side of each chakra draws to you guides and angels that support you, according the quality of the chakra itself. Ideally the back side of each chakra perfectly reflects your soul’s journey now. But like all of our energies, the webbing of the chakra’s vortices can be out of tune or not fully and accurately reflect our soul’s journey. Here is a meditation to help you re-weave the chakras, and call to yourself guides and angels that more fully support you in your life, here and now.   1. Opening Thoughts on Healing2. Create Sacred Space3 Multitasking leads to doing what is not yours to do4 Thymus (High Heart Chakra) keeps us on our soul’s journey. 5 Releasing Past Heart-based Guides/Angels6. Discerning what are truly Healing Energies for you7. Resetting Pituitary Pineal Glands8. Reignite Soul-Earth Connection (healing songs)9. Releasing Sacred Space10. For more information 2. Creating Sacred SpaceThere are many emotions and energies within the land that Nature holds on behalf of humanity. For right now, we’re going to leave those asleep. Welcome those Nature Spirits and Intelligences to step forward at what they would consider to be their level of unconditional love. Let them show you something new. Welcome The Pure Energy of Nature, an aspect of creation that we all belong to. The Pure Energy of Nature is made up of a drop of each of our essences. All that is in physical form has a drop of its essence within this pure energy of nature. It feels like a warm, usually somewhat thick, watery quality. Sensation. All of these together create a sphere around the space that you are in. We ask that the sphere reflect what Nature considers to be unconditional love. In this way, they demonstrate to us as humans something new. The sphere may tune beyond our limited human understanding and experience of unconditional love. This supports us even further in our own exploration of what unconditional love might be while we are here in human form. We also welcome that aspect of Archangel Michael that sits with each to be present. Michael is known to many people in many cultures by other names. It is an energy that helps other energies go home. For this reason, I invoke Archangel Michael. You probably already know this energy. You can even ask the Nature Spirits and Intelligences of the room and land beneath that are holding the sphere to cleanse and clear the room and land beneath. Let all those energetic patterns and beings not related to your meditation step outside the sphere for a moment. Anybody that needs to return to continue to work with you will do so. For now, thank everyone who is helping you make your grocery list or your to-do list, and just let them sit outside the sphere for a moment so you have quiet space to welcome in that guide or angel that is truly in tune with you for this moment of time, for what you’re about to do now. 3 Multitasking leads to doing what is not yours to do Throughout our daily lives we are multi-tasking. There almost seems to be something wrong with us if we can’t focus on three things simultaneously. And yet, the more things that demand our attention, the less of our attention any single [...]

CREATING LIFE

Wed, 29 Jan 2014 04:56:00 +0000

      Connecting to the Essence from which You Came for Deep Healing and Spiritual Intimacy.Changing our reality isn’t about thinking the change. It’s about going to the foundation of our reality, reconnecting into that point from which we have all come, and feeling our ability to now sense all the consciousness’ with whom we have incarnated. 1 The Pure Energy of Nature (what it is, how to connect with it)Within our first dimension lies a Divine Feminine energy that creates all form and simultaneously contains the consciousness within all form, including water. 2 Co-Creating Sacred SpaceQuestion: Why ask for other beings, such as Nature Spirits, to show us their level of love?  Shouldn’t they reflect my level of unconditional love? Response: Recognizing that we do not want to limit other beings in their expression of unconditional love is what makes us co-creators, rather than dictators.  I invite those Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of the room and land to step forward into my awareness at what they would consider to be their level of unconditional love. Freeing them up to show me something new, something different, something unique frees my own body from limiting beliefs of what unconditional love should be that I may have imposed upon it.   3 Earth listens to Our Body There is a resonant pattern between the water and minerals contained within our body’s cells, and the equivalent minerals and water within the planet. Our cells vibrate with the emotions and thoughts that we experience throughout our daily life. When we go walking in a forest we feel ourselves relax because the Earth reminds our body of its potential for greater ease. So too, the Earth senses, feels, and responds to our bodies when we experience levels of stress. 4 Reintegration after Choosing PolarityWe Chose Separation as part of our Divine Plan. Polarity is what has let us find our unique power as creators. We emerge now as one of the many – not one of unification, but one of seeing each as unique. Different Consciousness’ exist simultaneously.  Which one dominates is our choice.5 The Foundation of Our RealityThe foundational energy of our reality exists within the First Dimension. It is within this Divine Feminine Matrix, what I refer to as The Pure Energy of Nature, that a drop of our essence resides. In fact, The Pure Energy of Nature is composed of a drop of essence from every spiritual being and everything that has physical form. All that is within our reality exists within The Pure Energy of Nature. Changing our reality isn’t about thinking the change. It’s about going to the foundation of our reality, reconnecting into that point from which we have all come, and feeling our ability to now sense all the consciousness’ with which (or with whom) we have incarnated. 6 MEDITATION on The Pure Energy of Nature How does that Pure Energy of Nature remind each cell of your body of your own unique expression of unconditional love? 7 Sound Healing:  The Gift 8 Releasing guides that helped us stay in Polarity and inviting in new ones. Often times, when there is a portion of ourselves that we have finally honed into the experience of polarity, there will be much resist[...]

FULFILLING YOUR PROMISE TO ALL OF CREATION

Mon, 02 Sep 2013 19:40:06 +0000

Your full potential is a promise made by your soul to All of Creation. According to this promise, your only task is to bring the unique vibration resulting from the union of your body and soul into the Earth now.  As your soul embraces through the body, not just the mind and heart, those qualities of energies that you agreed to create for all of us are more palpable, more available, and more generously offered to All of Creation. When your soul is fully engaged into your body, there is a palpable frequency of energy that is generated. Your soul emanating through your body and generating this energy is what you agreed to bring to this lifetime. It is your soul’s  promise to Spirit. Each one of us has this responsibility. Fulfilling this promise usually begins with a longing to simply be still.  Here are a series of mediations and songs to help you do that now.   1. Intro 2. We can only hear Spirit when we are listening. 3 Meditation: Cultivate Stillness Within 4 Invoking Sacred Space 5 Just DON’T do it 6  Meditation: Body and Earth 7 Song: Blessing for the Earth 8 We are each Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine 9 Song: O Creation of God 10 Your promise to All of Creation 11 Song: Joy (a healing song from Nature) 12 Remembrance 13 Releasing Sacred Space, Guides and Angels   2. WE CAN ONLY HEAR SPIRIT WHEN WE ARE LISTENING Just as our guides and angels inspire us and bring to us moments of clarity, warmth and joy, this only happens when our inner being is available to listen to and see the signs that Spirit sends to us.  It is often we who must remember to make available the resources within us that desire to respond to Spirit.   3 BEGINNING MEDITATION  to CULTIVATE STILLNESS WITHIN Beginning any meditation with just a simple tuning into the quality of your breathing is an easy way to begin to cultivate an inner state of quiet.  As you combine the thought of awareness (of any area of your body) and the physicality of breathing, you generate more energy within your body, tuned to your body and soul. You do this effortlessly because it’s simply you opening those spiritual connections that are already available to your body.  Your mind simply needs to move out of the way!   4 INVOKING SACRED SPACE Welcoming Nature to create a sphere around you that reflects what Nature perceives as unconditional love.  Inviting that aspect of Archangel Michael that is uniquely connected to you now. 5 JUST D O N’ T  DO IT So often in life we’ve been exhorted to ‘just do it’ and ‘get on with it’ and’ get up and get moving’. More and more, I’m recognizing that our ability to choose what change fits us and implement it in a lasting manner has so much more to do with not getting up and getting out and just doing it. Transformative change starts with sitting very still and very quietly, reaching a point a point in meditation where there is no motion and no breath. Here is where your soul and Spirit commune with your body.  And if you listen, you might also hear their conversation. 6  MEDITATION : BODY AND EARTH As we enter into meditation, we feel the journey that our soul has in mind for us now. The resistance that our personaliti[...]

WEAVING CREATION INTO TIME

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 01:57:59 +0000

WEAVING CREATION INTO TIME
Finding the Power of Who You Are

Between the atoms of our bodies and the seconds of each minute lies the stillness of Creation.  What we most desire is to follow our soul’s journey.  Here is a meditation to take you on that journey. 

 

After linking the physical body to your support staff of spiritual beings we begin by recognizing that the quality of ease your soul plans for you to experience in this lifetime.  The amount of ease is almost always much greater than the quality of ease we are actually experiencing.  Stepping away from the mind and our insistence on using what our ego (or personality) wants to do as the basis for the goals in our life is the first step in relaxing into the quality of ease that our soul truly wants for us to feel in our bodies and in our lives.

As we become aware of a greater depth of stillness, especially in and around our Navel Chakra, we can begin to experience Time, and Creation, combining into a space within our being. Neither is an external linear action.  Inexplicable but tangible, a sensation of fullness arises from within our body that is satisfying and powerfully expansive.  Entering into this stillness we are able to also enter into Time itself.

As we consciously recognize our soul within the lower dimensions we build bridges between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd dimensions.  Our body, especially at the Navel Chakra, brings us information from these other dimensions.  What is it that your soul wants to create in your life? 

1. Introduction
2. Invoking Sacred Space
3. Creation happens within the moments of Time
4. How Dimensions Create Together
5. Finding Your Unique Vibration and the Power of Who You Are
6. Creating New Possibilities in life
7. Opening the Psychic Potential of Your Body

THE DREAMTIME COUNCIL - See You There?

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 04:22:27 +0000

  The Dreamtime Council – see you there? -Norma Gentile    www.HealingChants.com I can’t help but recognize the glamorization in American (and Western) culture of not sleeping.  As a result our kidneys and adrenal glands are extremely overworked when they respond to the copious amounts of caffeine we ingest. We have built a societal belief pattern that it is a sign of weakness to want to rest, sleep or have nourishment for our bodies.    And yet the truth is that rejuvenation through nourishment (food for the body; music, playfulness and art for our emotions) and rest (sleep and times of meditation and deep relaxation while awake) are natural portions of our rest-work cycle in daily living.    During sleep we know that we enter into different types of rest. I believe that Dreamtime, or Rapid Eye Movement (REM) allows us to process the events of our waking day into patterns that our unconscious mind organizes.  My guides suggest that it is here, within this deepest time of dreams, that our soul is able to commune with all the other beings of consciousness with whom we share this reality.    Science is reaching the conclusion that shamans have always known: much of the healing of our physical body takes place in Dreamtime.  This is also where I believe that we choose to make major changes in our lives. These major changes are possible only when, during Dreamtime, we are connected into the shared field of consciousness amongst all humans and other beings acting within our reality.  It is only with the support of all beings of consciousness that any one of us can fundamentally change.  And it is because of the support of all beings of consciousness that this depth of change is possible. The shared field of consciousness we enter into during Dreamtime is like a council meeting.  Our unconscious mind energetically attends it each night during this deepest point of sleep we call Dreamtime. During other portions of our sleep cycle the energetic field of our unconscious mind reports back to our body, emotions and personality on the proceedings of this council of all beings.    When we are not available to attend this great council during Dreamtime our life experience is not actively participating in the decisions reached by all the other beings in attendance.  So not only are we not represented, but we also don’t know what decisions were reached and what changes were agreed upon. Our unconscious mind is not able to hear the proceedings and pass those proceedings onto us in some fashion such as intuition, personal dreams or insights. On a physical level, our adrenals and kidneys as well as the webbing on many of our chakras, especially the navel chakra, are impacted by a lack of quality sleep and participation in Dreamtime. When we prioritize the time that we spend with all of the consciousness of humanity and other beings in Dreamtime, that message passes onto all other humans.   Now we just have to be present in the Dreamtime council long enough to share it or hear it!   I am reminded by my guides that the great shifts in consciousness may appear t[...]



BREATHING STILLNESS / GENERATING PEACE

Fri, 12 Apr 2013 07:09:00 +0000

Breathing Stillness / Generating Peace A series of Meditations to naturally generate Power and Ease by Connecting your Physical Body to your Soul’s Journey   1 Introduction 2 Creating Sacred Space 3 Balancing Body, Soul and Spiritual Helpers 4 Good Brain!     5 Releasing Emotional Tumult in the Heart Completion A Sound Healing to release High Heart tumult   with Gordon Johnston, harp and Jeremy Sills, singing bowls 6 Rededicating your personal High Heart; Sound Healing Ode to Day  7 Solar Plexus, Kidneys and Adrenals: Your True Power  8 Breathing Stillness  / Generating Peace 9 Ovaries, Testicles and 2nd chakra; Deep Patience and Ease:    How much ease does your soul want your body to experience now?  10 Summary 11 Releasing Sacred Space      From our heart down to our pelvis lie energy centers that are seldom spoken about, let alone cleared and consciously utilized by those of us in modern Western society.  Here is a meditation that may assist in addressing issues commonly associated with mistunings of these lower energy centers, such as unfulfilling sleep, workaholic tendencies and the inability to breath deeply.     Your soul embraces your body in both the upper and lower chakras. The 2nd chakra, just below your physical navel, reflects the natural ease that your soul desires for your body to have in this physical world. When tuned accurately, this allows the depth of stillness that you naturally tap into to be available to you through your first chakra. With each breath you generate prana within your Navel Chakra which nourishes all of your chakras and brings this natural tuning of inner peace from you first or root chakra into all of your physical body.   Two songs, recorded during mediation concerts are included.  For more information on the music or this meditation please see the podcast page of my website, healingchants.com    [...]

A MEDITATION for THE SHIFT OF THE AGES

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 05:32:00 +0000

The New Age: Welcoming the Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine

 

This meditation, given on the eve of the Great Shift of the Ages, is applicable for the many years to come in which humanity will be incorporating a new understanding of sacredness in the polarity of male and female. At one point you will hear my vocal quality and vocabulary change a bit – this is where Thoth, an Ascended Master, leaned in and shared his insights through me about our kundalini changing now, and it’s role in transmuting the physical body into a Pillar of Light. 


This recorded version also includes a Song from Spirit, Claritas Inspiravit (Clarity Inspires) sung by Norma accompanied by harpist Gordon Johnston from a live Meditation Concert. This was improvised in the moment, and seems to fit perfectly within the context of this meditation.


After invoking a Sacred Space using Nature, we invoke your unique aspect of the Sacred Masculine from your soul’s essence within the Earth.  Uniting this with the already present Divine Feminine, a meditation then supports you to embody these within you, and emboldens you to act upon your soul’s journey.

We aren’t the only ones changing consciousness.  In fact, of all those beings of consciousness upon the Earth and with whom we share our reality, we lag far behind! Many of us are standing at the doorway with our arms flung wide, grasping onto past wounds or beliefs, and we cannot pass through the narrow door into the new age with these still by our side. Here is a chance to feel the depth of who you are now, and what you truly are here to do.

PAN, NATURE and EARTH

Sun, 16 Dec 2012 11:51:28 +0000

The soul that we know as Gaia clothed herself long ago as the Earth. Those beings helping to weave her clothing, Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences, and the principle tailor, Pan, are portions of the many souls journeying with us now. Gaia's journey is our journey.


As we become more fluent to listening to the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of our space and the land beneath our homes, we also become available to steward and give permission for the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of the Earth to release what they need to release now.

PERFECT STORM / PERFECT PRAYER

Dear Friends, I offer these ideas as ways to deepen your own meditation and process of prayer. Our hearts are in resonance to the greater consciousness of Gaia, the Earth. She is evolving with us. For many ages emotions experienced by humans have been incorporated into the physical Earth as energetic patterns. As Gaia's consciousness is shifting along with our own consciousness, these patterns need to be slowly and gently released by the Earth so that the energies contained within them might also be transformed. For many years I have been aware of our potential to influence weather patterns. Throughout history we have gathered and prayed in words, song and dance for the balance of sun and rain, warmth and cold, breezes and cleansing winds and would bring us the most abundant harvest. As our technology is moving into areas previously inhabited by spiritual and mystical teachers and teachings, we face the question: Just because we can, do we have the right to impose our 'good' or 'bad' desires upon the Earth? I firmly believe that a group of people in meditation can magnify events that are already in progress. These events can be political, social or even weather occurrences. I also firmly believe that these same events can be de-escalated. Those of you who have followed me for a while will understand me when I state this: It is not about wanting or praying or meditating or wishing weather (or anything) to be a certain way. It isn't even about praying to de-escalate a storm. It is about asking the consciousness already contained within the storm what it wants. Storms contain consciousness. Political and social uprisings contain a sort of consciousness as well. Right now our planet is full of consciousness' much larger than our own, but intimately linked to us, who are massaging emotional energies long held by the physical Earth. As this massage continues the emotions are slowly released. If you think the chaos in the Middle East is difficult or the financial situation in the US and EU is hard, just imagine if instead of a controlled release over 35-40 years these same energies had been released over the course of 1-2 years. Right now there is a potential for a large release of Earth energies to happen early next week. I have heard that solar flares are up, and expected to reach us about then. NPR just posted a sto[...]

You can listen to that meditation now and also explore the new sound healings page. I will be in Niles, MI Oct 14 and then Ottawa, Canada Oct 20-23. In Ottawa I am joined by wonderful musician friends Jeremy Sills(Tibetan Bowls) and Gordon Johnston(harp) for a Candlelight Concert, followed by a workshop on Sacred Song and Healing, then a day of Private Sessions. Plans are still percolating for an early December workshop and sessions near Richmond, VA. Stay tuned for more on that, and some west coast winter events.   Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. -Robert Frost from his poem "The Road Not Taken" Since June, it is as if our planet has entered a cosmic roundabout. You know what that is - a traffic circle with all those different streets that you can turn onto. Sometimes they come with lanes that are marked, but more often than not it's up to you to navigate your way around it until you reach the street you want to turn onto. We had meant, I think, to exit out a particular street. Instead we kept going around and around for most of the summer months. In early September we suddenly turned onto a street. But it is not the one we all had agreed upon exploring. We are not where we expected ourselves, as a planet, to be. This is not what the GPS told us to do. But it is what the GPS of the shared subconscious of humanity decided upon. As we are traveling this new area we ourselves are becoming different from whom we thought ourselves to be. All the choices that we have made need to be remade. What tools do we need now for this new journey our souls have chosen? If you are going camping in the mountains you take very different clothing than if you are going for a vacation in a luxurious hotel. A walk in a cold northern rain forest requires different planning from a walk in the warm desert. What tools do we need to pick up now, for this part of our journey? What choices do we need to let go of, or remake, simply because we aren't where we thought we were going to be. There is nothing wrong with where we are. The planet as a whole, changed. The group consciousness reset the GPS. We are in a different place than where we thought we would be. Allowing ourselves t[...]



THE NEW ROAD TAKEN

Thu, 11 Oct 2012 06:35:49 +0000

  Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.      -Robert Frost**from his poem “The Road Not Taken” Uniting the Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine essences of your soul within your Body:  Ovaries, Testicles and Root Chakra. Our soul’s essence resides within our root or first chakra. Just as foundational energies of our reality present themselves as polarized (good/bad or dark/light), our own souls divided themselves into male and female in order to incarnate.  Here is a meditation to help you access both aspects of your own soul: Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine. Regardless of the gender of your physical body both essences are 2123qnow available and both actively support your body.  In this meditation the focus is upon your root or first chakra. This is the foundation of your body, and how you engage with this physical world. 1. Introduction2. Invocation of Nature’s Unconditional Love 3. Archangel Michael: Invoking the Sacred Masculine4. The Heart of the Sacred Masculine5. Meditation:  How do You relate to the Heart of the Sacred Masculine?6. Souls, Gender, Polarity and your Sacred Masculine7. Turning down an unexpected Street! Coping with a New Unexpected Reality8a Meditation on the Divine Feminine for Men8b Meditation on the Divine Feminine for Women9 Uniting Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine in Your Body10  Understanding Your Soul’s Choices Now11 Releasing Spiritual Helpers, the Nature Sphere, and Archangel Michael12 Final Thoughts and Spiritual Homework    A Note on Language:The First Dimension is where The Pure Energy of Nature resides. The Pure Energy of Nature is also known as the Divine Feminine matrix, and it forms the chalice into which the Sacred Masculine is received and safeguarded.  In this manner both the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine energies of our world reside within the First Dimension and the foundation of our reality.    1. IntroductionWe do happen to live in a dualistic world, a world that has its foundation in polarity. We still speak in terms of male and female, inside or outside, good or bad.  During this meditation we are looking at how we nourish ourselves in order to creatively engage with our external world.  That which we naturally receive allows us an equivalent quality of creating out into our world. 2. Invocation of Nature’s Unconditional LoveThis invocation is a way of honoring that the physical forms around us are just as spiritual as we are.  We don’t think of a table, a bookcase, the floor or the walls around us as being particularly spiritual.  But they have the capacity to vibrate at their own levels of unconditional love.  And this serves to remind our own bodies of the potential we have to receive and offer love unconditionally. I honor that everything in our third dimension, whether we think of it as being ‘good’ or ‘bad’, emanates from the world of Sp[...]

A Lot of Sacred Masculine Energy arriving a little early this year

Even before our Sacred Masculine Father (the Sirian Sun) aligns with our own Sun (July 23-September 17) other elements that carry with them a heightened Sacred Masculine quality are impacting our Earth, and our lives. Solar Flares are one example of this. Faced with so much Sacred Masculine energy available to us, we sometimes run amok of our divine nature and utilize the 'doing' quality of the Sacred Masculine without the equivalent context that the Divine Feminine (reflection) provides.There is a reason that the Divine Feminine has awoken first upon the Earth. She provides the context, reflection and container (Grail) into which the Sacred Masculine energies might safely fall. Without this container, the Sacred Masculine energies are apt to be utilitzed in a linear 'get it done' manner. With the container provided by the Divine Feminine we are more apt to reflect and patiently contain the energies available to us. When we add a sprinkling of patience to the mix of these energies, we are much more likely to find ourselves moving easily with the larger creative cycles.If this has been your experience, you may want to take some extra time in the coming weeks to nourish yourself in ways that feel feminine and soothing. As you deepen your own Divine Feminine, your own chalice can hold more of the incoming Sacred Masculine. A photo representation of my invitation to Archangel Michael for a conscious, magnified connection. I share this technique with others.Archangel Michael is already and always present. It is a quality of energy that can be both masculine and feminine. This energy helps other beings and energies find their own way home. What I have discovered is a simple method that lets us share more profoundly in our innate connection to Archangel Michael's quality of consciousness. This is part of what I teach during the Practitioner's Workshop (July 20-22).Photos taken as I invited Archangel Michael into a room Before, I am setting up instruments for the event After, I have asked for Archangel Michael to be present in a specific manner in the room A Sound Healing: the Beginninga YouTube video from a recent concert with digital photos taken simultaneously of energies in the room(you can also see this by going[...]

When we share something that has happened to us inside of Sacred Space during a time of being in normal space, outside of the vibration of Sacred Space, it often sounds ludicrous or fantastical and ungrounded to those listening. For this reason it is important to share sacred experiences within sacredness – whether it is a time created by invoking sacred energies, or a time defined by intimate heart connections to others 2 Entering into Sacred Space  Welcoming Nature Spirits at THEIR level of Unconditional Love and your innate connection to Archangel Michael.3 The Two Heart Chakras (and what they do)We try to engage where we do not need to engage.  The High Heart chakra tells us where to engage, who to engage with, even how to engage with those meant to be in our life now.  The Traditional or Lower Heart Chakra supplies the power of unconditional love to do this.4  Meditation on Your High Heart Learn to physically locate the High Heart / Thymus Gland ChakraRelease guides and angels that no longer serve your journeyMake space for guides and angels that support you right nowSometimes when we are uncertain and feel unable to make a decision, it is because those guides and angels that are working with us are no longer in tune with us.  This is particularly true when those guides and angels attached to us through the backside of our High Heart chakra are older and don’t reflect changes that have happened in the world around us or choices we have made ourselves. 5 Updating Your Spiritual Support Staff   The support staff of Spirit, your guides and angels, usually appear to stand behind you.  From this point they support you and connect into your energy field from the backside of your chakras.  You can usually feel them in the space a few inches or up to a foot behind you.I am always amazed at how quickly we are all shifting, and how many energies we seem to be either releasing or updating on a daily basis.  The guides and angels you woke up with this morning are probably not the same ones you are going to go to sleep with tonight.6 Sound Meditation: How d[...]

HEALING EMOTIONAL TURBULENCE

Sun, 20 May 2012 19:09:55 +0000

(essay) I was mulling over how, during intense circumstances, we process and release the emotional energies or physical stress and discomfort we feel related to the intensity.  Sometimes we use healthy methods, like yoga, exercise, talking with trusted mentors or chanting.  Sometimes we indulge in less healthy forms of release. Lately I was looking at blame and similar emotions that tend to throw out of our own space those uncomfortable personal emotional energies that build up within us during difficult times.I think the hardest part of going through something difficult is thinking that it is just you alone going through it. I don't tend to believe that "misery loves company". But I would say that when you know you are experiencing something, and that there are others who are experiencing something similar, it gives you access to the larger context of your experience. With this sense of ‘you are not alone’ it is easier to step out of self-blame (it's all my fault and I am ashamed) and be open to seeing how you contributed to the situation (without assigning blame).  When any of us understands how we helped create our quandary, we have the potential to make choices that get us out of the situation. As I see it, blame throws emotional energy out of your space (when you blame others) or overwhelms your ability to process and move forward (when you blame yourself, and feel ashamed). But we each need access to emotional energy in order to change ourselves and our lives. So if any of us is constantly throwing emotional energy away (or inward), we may never accumulate enough energy for true transformational change.  Emotional energies are some of the most potent energies we have easy access to, as humans.  But only those energies that are actively flowing and in motion are available for us to use.  This is true for all types of energy.  Anything that is moving and flowing we can engage with to create change.  We have a much harder time engaging with hose energies that are stuck or frozen, and so they are prone to remaining unchanged.   A simplistic model of this is how water moves quickly when it is in its gaseous state as humidity in the air, or its fluid state as a flowing river.  If you have walked on a beach or alongside a stream, you may have noticed that the motion of the water erodes the sharp edges on whatever it has come into contact with.  Pebbles, shells, broken glass and even stones are worn down over time to have silky smooth surfaces and rounded edges. Water in its frozen state, such as ice, cannot interact with these objects in the same way nearly as quickly!  It is only to the extent that the potential energy within the water is released that it can act to change what it is interacting with.  Ice will smooth the edges of objects, but it takes much longer because there is so much less motion.  The energy potential [...]

YOUR UNIQUE FREQUENCY

Tue, 27 Mar 2012 22:55:00 +0000

How Your Soul and Body create your Life's Journey  Invocation of Sacred Space – Why I do this My goal is that my guides and your guides work together.  When I take the time to invoke the Nature Sphere and Archangel Michael, it is much more likely that your own guides will share with you an additional story and complimentary ideas as I speak. If the words I’m using aren’t quit what you need to hear, your guides can give you a memory, an image, a symbol or an idea that is more suitable for your life and what is going on with you right now.   Inviting that aspect of Archangel Michael that is always and already supporting you in your journey and the elements of Nature to create Sacred Space will magnify your healing process.    Why we Resist Releasing Thoughts, Emotions, Behaviors   Sometimes we resist releasing energies that surround us, largely out of habit.  We have become accustomed to feeling the equivalent of pillows all around us, or many winter overcoats layered upon us.  It can feel scary to let go of the Angels, guides or energies that have been with us for so long.  And yet as we release them we are able to stand up straighter, and are more apt to hear the guides and Angels that are truly a part of our life’s journey right now.   Defining Your Soul, here and now That portion of your soul incarnating into your body now has a different vibration than the portion of your soul that looked down and decided to incarnate within your mother’s womb. Who you were when you were born is not who we are now.  Everything is changing, even the planet.  Would your soul not want to take advantage of these new opportunities?   Meditation: Releasing energies no longer active in your life.  When a portion of our soul completes a task, or decides that the task cannot be completed in this lifetime, that portion of our soul leaves.   Here is a meditation to allow the guides and angels whose tasks have come to completion with us to ease out of our space.  This applies to any being or energy who has helped us in the past.  We need to especially consider those time in our lives when the cycle did not have the outcome we wanted, or if the situation seems to have not quite completed itself.  In these instances we are most apt to override the natural flow, and try to hold onto those guides and angels who supported us during this time.  We do this believing that the situation needs to resolve differently.   By releasing from all around our body those guides and angels that supported us through difficult situations, we are also releasing our mental constructs that say “this is wrong” or “the outcome was wrong”.   As long as we label something as “wrong”, we also keep the energies related to it such as ourselves, our guides and our angels from continuing[...]

Look Within: The Journey of Worship

Tue, 27 Mar 2012 22:39:58 +0000

  As we draw ever closer to the date of December 21, 2012, more and more people’s attention, and therefore the energies of their life-force, are being drawn to what this might mean.  I find myself noticing the buildup of energies around 12/21/12, and wonder if much of what we are experiencing in the world is actually a consequence of our own attention upon the instant, magical change that many expect on this date.   Here is a bit of what my principle guide, Archangel Michael is sharing with me today:   You (humanity) have a built-in predisposition to assign power and prestige to objects and people outside of yourself.  Initially in your development as a race, this assisted you with understanding the potential of your true nature.    Now, however, is the time for you to grasp whatever you see before you as powerful, all-knowing or omnipotent, and find that same quality deep within your own physical form. There is a veil between your body and yourself (your personality) that has been lifted. Most humans believe that veil still exists, and they behave accordingly, worshiping those in whom they have placed their confidence – or their fear.   For remember, within the dynamic of Earth’s evolutionary process, you are bound to duality.  As you bow before another, you are calling others to bow before you.  And what you worship externally is merely someone, or something, that in turn is worshiping another.   This chain of worship does not end in the God that you believe you know.  It ends back where it began, within another human or an object. In essence, it is one large circle, with no end and no beginning.  But unlike the Biblical reference from which I draw this statement, there is no true God involved.   Worship is reserved for yourself.  Consider this statement.  What if the only thing or person you worshiped were you?  How would that change your belief system and daily routine?     Truly there are aspects of your life in which you are still learning from another.  You may decide that having a worshipful relationship to some people and some objects is accurate for you, here and now.  These are relationships where you feel you are exploring and finding new strengths within yourself each time you interact with this person or object.     There are also, no doubt, some relationships of worship that no longer serve your journey.  The lessons have been learned and the tasks are completed.  In these cases the relationships feel uncomfortable, heavy and even painful.  Your life-force is engaged in a way that does not reveal and nourish your inner vitality.     This is a most difficult relationship to change.  As humans you have a habit of linear thinking.  In this pattern, whatever once felt good should continue to feel [...]



The Year of Stillness - A Time of Dreams

Tue, 10 Jan 2012 08:48:00 +0000

The Year of Stillness – A Time of Dreams Mary, through Norma Gentile.   As of Oct 28, 2011, the Mayan Calendar ceased to track the movements of our planet in the cosmos.  While hype and media spin continue around the date December 21, 2012, most astrologers now believe that the calendar’s end point has been reached. For myself, I feel December 21, 2012 (give or take a few months) is the date upon which the longest cycle tracked by the Mayan Calendar resets itself and begins again.  From now until then, we are in a “time of no time”.   In considering what this means to me, and how my life is impacted, I heard the phrase “Still Point” from one of my guides, Mary.  And thoughts began to flow.  Here is a summary of what she shared with me.   from Mary Just like in meditation or cranial-sacral or energy healing, there is a point of stillness where there is no breath, no sense of the body and no sense of self or surroundings. This is a point of transformation. In this moment, which feels as if it could last forever but in all likelihood is but a fraction of a moment, there is no thought and no sense of time passing.  Life suspends itself, and (I believe) because we are in a state of actual suspended animation, all around us can change.    Or perhaps it is because we are deeply and exquisitely aware of ourselves and all that is around us that we choose differently, not with our minds, but with our soul and being.  In any case, within these moments, which both the practitioner and client enters into, our life changes.  We do not come out of this stillness with the same sensation of ourselves and our world.     Regardless of whether I am in the receiving mode when I enter into Still Point, or am functioning as the healer, the sense of my self and my world changes each time I pass through this process of deep stillness.   I wonder then, what will happen to our planet as we all pass through an entire year of Still Point?  Together…   In order to take advantage of this incredible opportunity, we each have to be willing to let go of the amount of external doing and busy-ness that accompanies most of our lives.  Being available to enter into Still Point means surrendering to the support that Spirit and Nature and all that surrounds us is already providing. Within this surrender is the opportunity to witness ourselves floating within the cosmic year of “time of no time”.     The experience of Still Point is ever deepening during this year.  It is becoming and will continue to become more and more accessible to all of us in human form.  And it is also more prominent within the consciousness of animals (who are supporting the human transitions in consciousness).  Leave them be. Th[...]

This is an issue that is so ingrained into you that you don't even see it as something that could change. It is an issue that is so close to your life, so pervasive and so intimately connected to your daily habits and assumptions about who you are that you have been working around it your entire life. And that is precisely what is changing now. If you are like most people, you learned to avoid looking at this central life issue. You probably planted bushes in front of the issue, or hung decorations on it to make it look like it belonged in your life. But it doesn't. And we can't look away from it or be distracted by other events in our lives anymore. The shrubs we planted in front of our issue died. The decorations are falling off. We watered the shrubs. We tried to rehang the decorations. Nothing worked. Because part of letting go of something is addressing it. In order to address it, we must be able to see it clearly. Often times when this happens there is a sense of inner grief. Sometimes we grieve the bush that we planted that have died. We think we are grieving the issue. But because we are merely grieving what we placed in front of the issue we never really get to[...]



Updating Your Soul's Journey

READ ONLINE http://www.healingchants.com/newsletter11-11.html PRINT http://www.healingchuyants.com/NormaGentile_nov11.pdf Updating Your Soul's Journey What you came here to do has probably chnaged   Dear Friends, Below is an essay and a note to let you know that the new audio meditation, Healing Meditations for Notable Days (such as Solstice, Equinox, Eclipses, Full and New Moons) is now available as a free mp3 or at cost CD. This is from the 11/11/11 meditation, and it applies to current energies nicely.   In case you didn't know, we are on the verge of a set of eclipses. The first begins late Thursday eve into Friday morning (US time). These are drawing out of us emotions that we usually can put away, or at least hide from others. These emotions provide the impetus we need for yielding ourselves to new opportunities.   The magnification of energies during the window between these eclipses (Nov 24-25 and Dec 10) lets us not hide what we otherwise hide, even from ourselves. Astrologer Mark Dodich says "Those dreams and ideals that come from your soul mission want to come to the surface now." If you feel so drawn, there is more information on the new Healing Meditations for Notable Days below. Please also consider joining me for an event, and letting others know about the concerts/workshops I offer in various locations.   UPCOMING EVENTS Dec 12 Ann Arbor MI Meditation Concert in Candlelight   Updating Your Soul's Journey What you came here to do has probably chnaged   First, A Note On Psychic Learning For most people psychic gifts need to be relearned in each lifetime. The world is vibrationally distinct in each lifetime and so is your physical body. It is only natural that you would have to relearn how to be energetically in relationship to yourself and to the world. This is particularly true about how we relate to our soul's journey and foreknowing future aspects of it. Whatever your soul planned to do here before you incarnated on Earth has probably changed. Especially if you incarnated before 1972. Humanity changed. The planet changed. Whatever your soul decided to do here on Earth before you incarnated has probably changed.   During the past fifty or so hears there have been multiple shifts in our reality that our souls did not anticipate. Depending on when in our linear time line your soul decided upon this lifetime's goals and challenges, you may be experiencing yourself as disconnected from your own life. Isolation is one symptom I commonly hear from clients, as well as the sensation of floating away from the physical life you are living. From my experience, this simply means that what your mind may think is your soul's journ[...]



HEALING MEDITATIONS for NOTABLE DAYS

Thu, 24 Nov 2011 04:08:00 +0000

   (Full and New Moons, Solstice, Equinox, Eclipses and 12.21.2012)   On days which are considered to be sacred it is useful to take a moment to feel the old cycle which is fading away.  Letting ourselves feel the grief and sorrow over old patterns departing lets there truly be space to receive the new patterns.   This meditation includes   - releasing cords to processes that no longer serve your body  - a sound healing “Caught by Spirit” and spoken meditations releasing energies corresponding to:  - cycles that you have already completed  - tasks that you have already done  - lessons that you have already learned   All of these energetic connections can be released out of your body. Your release of these connections will be reflected in the collective consciousness of humanity.  This one way we take advantage of the heightened energies present during Full and New Moons, eclipses, Solstice, Equinox and other notable days.       1 Introduction 2  Invoking Sacred Space  Archangel Michael, the Pure Energy of Nature, Nature Spirits and Intelligences join us.   3 Inviting Your Angel/Guide into Your Awareness Most of us have a sphere or portal of energy into our hearts that lies behind our physical bodies.  This is where our Guardian Angel, Higher Self and connections to other healing energies most often occurs.  Here is a meditation to open this portal, cleanse it, and then invite in the Angel or Guide most suitable to support you now.     4 Understanding what you are already sensing in your body Besides picking up on other people’s physical body issues, the telepathic ability of our lower chakras can also pick up disturbances and changes in the electro-magnetic field of the planet. These are the sorts of changes that many people anticipate will be happening over the next few years.  For this reason it is particularly useful to be able to distinguish when the signals your body is sending to you relates to your own body, someone else’s body or the planet.   5 Spiritually Significant Days Many people are already directing their attention, and so therefore their energy, into the date of December 21, 2011.  I wonder if the various days preceding this that have interesting numerical combinations serve as practice days for us.  How do we energize days that are defined by someone as spiritually significant? How well do we create sacredness afterward the hoopla of a spiritually significant day has passed?  Especially when we are receiving the energetic results of what was done?  These practice days give us the opportunity to work with the larger energetic patterns that arise in ceremony and return to hum[...]

Time and Creation

Thu, 20 Oct 2011 02:41:12 +0000

Time and Creation Norma Gentile   Below is an article inspired by Mary and Archangel Michael. I can’t say I totally understand it myself, but I feel my mind being ‘re-wired’ and my body come alive in a new way each time that I have read it.  And so I share it with you.    I did not know as I was channeling this essay that we are entering in to a phase described by the Mayans as "The Time of No Time”. This, according to astrologer and author Cal Garrison, is a period where future, past and present times collapse into each other. I experience this as a brief moment that feels like a timeless eternity opening inside of my own body. And it is happening in the oddest of places and seemingly random moments - a parking lot, standing in line in a store, on hold during a phone call, waiting for my computer to update a file or just sitting in the sunshine.  Time stands still while gazing into the face of eternity.    I sat down to write and asked what one message would be most useful to share.  I had asked this after inviting Archangel Michael into the room.  To my surprise it was Mary Magdalene who identified herself to me and who then began to help me form thoughts.  Below is a transcript of what was shared.  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - -   What if time were not just linear or non-linear, but capable of existing in different forms within each dimension? Time is not unique to your third dimension, but its expression within your dimension is unique.  What if time were an expression of the consciousness of each Being?   You have been told that Time is an illusion. Some of you have had the experience of stepping beyond humanity’s agreed upon definition of time as linear.  If you consider that time may bend itself, much as you can turn your face to one side and allow your body to remain stationary, facing forward, so too can time be at once both linear and non-linear.  Your hearts are not linear.  Your soul is not linear. Your bodies are not made to function solely within a linear timeline.  Only one of many types of thought processes within your minds can conceive of things in a linear manner.  To use a metaphor from your current computerized lifestyle:  the linear timeline that you refer to is a result of one program among a multitude of software programs that your brains agreed to have installed within it.   Why is this important?   Because at this point in time your ability to utilize many other ways of reasoning that include other aspects of who you are (your heart, your soul, your spiritual network of helpers and your physical body) are being called upon.  They are being [...]



RESTING DEEPLY

Fri, 09 Sep 2011 07:23:00 +0000

How your body receives grounding within the changing electromagnetic field of Earth As we have changed in consciousness, so too Gaia’s consciousness and therefore the Earth has changed.  The electromagnetic field of the Earth is constantly shifting and changing.  More so now.  This meditation is one way of helping our own electromagnetic field (our aura) listen and respond to the changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field and the consciousness of Gaia. Here is a meditation inviting your body to remember its innate connection to your soul. Deeply relaxing, this meditation includes segments of releasing energies within your body and your aura. By inviting those energies that match your soul from within the lower dimensions to reestablish their natural connection to you, a fluid and ongoing energetic dialogue is created between your soul, your body, and the Earth. This is a new style of grounding which serves us well as we move into a new era of consciousness. Our Western culture has cultivated such a dependence on our heads and our ability to think that it has also cultivated a disconnection with our bodies.  We have ended up with lovely bodies that walk our heads around.  Fear has become an intrinsic way of life. It has become our daily companion.  This is because we as humans can not access our own body’s knowing and telepathic experience of the world which lies within our navel chakra and within our enteric nervous system. As we recover this lost skill, we will get better at feeling what is and isn’t actually a danger to our body.  As this happens, our level of fear decreases. My guides during this meditation included Thoth, Shesat, Mary and Archangel Michael. Includes a sound healing with Native American Flute player Lenore Wiand and myself singing.  Lenore’s album Ancient Spirits is available at iTunes or Amazon.com  Lenore uses the recording name of Aluna on this album.   1 Introduction 2 Confusion and Fear signal lack of grounding into body 3 Invoking Sacred Space 4 Polarity: we are both sides of the same coin We are both Individuals existing within the skin of our body, as well as Beings capable of connecting into All That Is. 5 Meditation: What our energies feel like to us What other energies feel like to us 6 How do your ovaries / testicles want to relate to your soul and the Earth? 7 Sound Healing: Gentle Remembrance with Lenore Wiand, Native American Flute 8 Navel Chakra Empowerment 9 Releasing Sacred Space 10  Gaia and Earth and Us We are all changing, and so we must remember to listen to each other in order to dance together easily 11 For more informat[...]

COMING HOME

Tue, 21 Jun 2011 06:51:46 +0000

Meditations exploring where “home” is within your body, how to get there and how to remain there. 
1. Introduction2 Invocation of Sacred Space
3 How Energies that are not ours show themselves to usCreating clearer and stronger communication with your Guides and Angels.   The quality of connection we have with our guides depends largely on our ability to understand when energetic consciousnesses, such as guides and angles, are telling us to let them go, or let them change and update their connection to us.4. Home is in your Navel
As we learn that there is a quiet still-point which already resides within us, the quality of spirit which imbues this silence moves out to our external world.  5.  Meditation for Ease in 2nd Chakra It isn’t just about sex.  Our 2nd chakra helps to determine the quality of our life.  The ease we have interacting with the world might be simple and uneventful, or each day might feel like we are bracing ourselves against the torments of daily life.  In most cases our soul wants our body to have an easy and joyous experience of daily living.  The polarities of this reality are more deeply held in the lower chakras then in the upper chakras. Early non-verbal cues that often teach us racism and sexism lie in the 2nd chakra.  So too the belief that we are not ‘good enough’ or that we don’t have the right to exist, or permission to be happy have their roots within the 2nd chakra.Early non-verbal cues that often teach us racism and sexism lie in the 2nd chakra.  So too the belief that we are not ‘good enough’ or that we don’t have the right to exist, or permission to be happy have their roots within the 2nd chakra.  6 Meditation for Soul/Body Gender Expression in 2nd Chakra

BEING CALLED HOME

Thu, 02 Jun 2011 00:13:18 +0000

  How Acts and Actions of Chaos Lead Us to Our Spiritual Purpose I have never thought of springtime as a time of inner or outer death.  But this year, at least for me, it has been a journey through chaos into an ever deepening stillness within. I suspect that I am not the only one who has been called, over and over again, to be present with extremes of grief and joy in these past weeks and months. Or to hold in loving compassion those who are undergoing severe and drastic life changes.  Each time I think to myself “this has to be the last change, the last huge political uprising, the last death, the last flood or earthquake or tornado.”  But it hasn’t been. World events have had no rest.  Ever vigilant, news channels report uprising after uprising in the Middle East and elsewhere.  The Earth seems to heave her crust beneath modern cities while unending torrents of water flow into towns and farmland.  If there is no inner personal crisis to attend to there is always an external one. Celebrating life is associated with springtime. Especially here in the northern climate of the US it is clear that the land is verdant once again.  What was hidden, in terms of the life force of Nature, is now clearly visible as lush green fields (and lawns) host brilliantly colorful flowers. As I look out into my wonderful blooming garden, I wonder, does this obvious beauty mean it is over?  Has the repeated cycle of being called to be present for death and illness and the world’s political changes ended now that spring has past and summer is nearly upon us?  Or perhaps, because I am human, that very human part of me asks Spirit if there can be an intermission, a pause, between the incessant acts of human violence and Nature’s ever increasingly dramatic storms? Probably not.  Because with each external change, we are called to reassess who we are, and how we want to express ourselves as Spiritual Beings into our ever shifting world. Living in a constant state of overwhelm is becoming an acceptable permanent condition for many people that I see in healing sessions nowadays. Consider, even a few years ago, would you be doing all that you are doing now in a normal day?  With each act of external change we are being called into a state of being that exists only when we are silently and firmly living from that place of “home” within our body.  Within this place there is usually no sense of rushing urgency, and no sense of being pushed or pulled by outer events.  This is the spiritual and energetic antidote to overwhelm. As the cyc[...]



How Earthquakes Change Our Brains (and the way we think about things)

Wed, 16 Mar 2011 18:49:33 +0000

 It wasn’t just an Earthquake.  Nor was it just a tsunami.  Nor is it even the ongoing nuclear meltdowns. The electromagnetic field of the planet shifted.  It happened in the hours just before the Earthquake and for several hours after the Earthquake.  And because of that, our brains and the way we think have changed too.   What does that mean? Simply put; you can’t think the same thoughts this week that you thought last week. The physical shift of the Earth made more concrete within our own bodies whatever change was necessary so that our thought patterns will not regress.  That is a gift to all of humanity from those now enduring hardship and loss in Japan.  And not coincidentally, I'm on my way to Portland Oregon for a meditation concert and workshop this weekend. The concert will be recorded, and so the energies of this evening will go out worldwide and be available as an mp3 or CD. The focus of Friday evening's concert is creating music to remind us that in the midst of chaos, we can find the power of stillness, and the sacredness of our own deep inner power. I now understand why my guides and angels suggested doing this on this date, amidst the chaos of earth changes, so that the recording can incorporate both the ongoing chaos and fear as well as the expansive Divine Feminine energies of the Full Moon and the steady balancing qualities of the Spring Equinox. Please let friends know about the Portland Oregon Concert! There are thoughts that are very hard for us to entertain now, after the quake.  These same thoughts were ones we considered normal to have before the quake. There is a deeper quality of compassion and less judgment.  A deeper reflection and stillness that we either yearn for or are taking steps to find and cultivate now.  Our brain’s function has shifted.  We have lost some of our memory.  The kind of memory that tells our computer where we were the last time we opened a web browser.  We can no longer access it.  There is no going back.  We are not who we were.  The electromagnetic field that surrounds the Earth is both generated by the Earth as well as all the living beings who are present upon and within the Earth.   As my definition of living beings I’m including plants, animals, minerals and all that humanity has created. Including nuclear power plants.  These power plants emit electromagnetic fields.  To a lesser extent the electrical lines in my backyard that bring electricity into my house, along with my phone lines and even cable TV lines, also generate small [...]

WEAVING SOUL into BODY, MIND and HEART

Tue, 15 Feb 2011 21:24:11 +0000

An hour of experiential healing meditations from Archangel Michael and Mary through Norma Gentile based on her essay Micromanaging God: How We Pray Matters *includes the sound healing "O Creation of God" (O factura Dei, available on the CDs Songs of Spirit and Healing Chants of Hildegard) composed and sung by Norma to the poetry of Hildegard of Bingen. 1 Micromanaging God: How we Pray Matters 2 Invoking (and Explaining) Sacred Energies 3 Meditation: What in Your Life is ready to be released? 4 Finding more Ease in Your Life *5 Meditation Chant: O Creation of God / O factura Dei 6 Strengthening the Bond between Soul and Body 7 Meditation: Weaving Your Soul into your Body, Mind and Heart 8 Meditation: Cleansing Body and Aura (4 feet around you) 9 Creating the New You 10 Releasing Sacred Space 11 For more information Total Time: 1 hour, 15 mins Do the forms you are currently manifesting serve you? Does your life now reflect what your soul desires to manifest? What is the quality of ease that your soul wants your body to have in your life? Manifestation is an energetic process within our throat or 5th chakra working in tandem with our navel chakra and knee chakras. The quality at which our skin rubs against our physical reality is largely determined by our soul. Most of us have accidentally created much more friction in our lives than what our soul means for us to experience. With this meditation we help you find the quality of ease that your soul means for your body to have in your life now. Sometimes it is our expectation that it will be difficult to release something that actually makes it difficult. Most of the time, the old is really uncomfortable, and we have simply grown used to the discomfort. The more we let go, the more ease we have in our lives. Spiritual energetic waves are always coming towards us. But the new can't arrive until we have let go of the old. In the ocean of life, you can't surf two waves at once! What if we were to shift healing and prayer away from the idea of needing help and giving help? What if we saw healing as being a situation where a person's soul and body are recognizing a potential for strengthening their connection? Together the soul and body have identified a weak link that they are ready to change. It is only the personality that is holding us back from moving easily along that path of change.[...]

MICRO-MANAGING GOD: How We Pray Matters

Sat, 29 Jan 2011 20:51:08 +0000

  (Free Phone Meditation Sun, Feb 6 at 2pm EDT.  See www.healingchants.com>Calendar for call in information) I find that the lessons my guides like to share with me are often brought to my attention in my normal waking life.  Recently, I noticed that not only is the media reporting on the events they usually cover, such as natural disasters and political upheavals, but they are also covering the resulting prayer gatherings and peace rallies. Likewise, with each unfolding situation, my email box fills with announcements of group meditations and prayers.   I’m betting yours does too. The invitations for most meditation events I receive include notes that the intention is to “heal” or “bring peace” to a person or situation on the planet.  Other emails request me to “send light and love” or good thoughts, prayer and energy towards curing illness for someone or helping with a difficult family matter. Certainly I feel a sense of compassion for those who are suffering.  Yet the underlying intention of this sort of goal-oriented prayer has never felt accurate to me. This morning as I was wrestling with how to address another round of these emails, I heard a sentence being formed out loud in my head. “The more unencumbered by personal intentions your prayers are, the more effective they are.”  While I attributed the sentence to one of my guides, the idea was not new to me. Growing up as the eldest granddaughter of a minister, I heard again every Easter the Bible story of Jesus’ overheard prayer “…Not my will, but Thine, be done.”    As a mystically inclined seeker of the Divine, I know it from passages in the Bhagavad Gita, the Emissaries of Divine Light, and the teachings of Yogananda.  And in the world of energy healing, I immediately recalled the ways in which several teachers have shared this same philosophy with me. Spiritual healer and teacher Ken Page points out that whenever we send energy, even “love and light”, we are opening ourselves to an energy exchange. Something will come back to us from the person or situation we are targeting with our prayers.  I would add that the more our intention is to change a person or situation, the more the energy that comes back to us will also try to change us! Drunvalo Melchizedek, author and originator of the MerKaBa Meditation,  points out that we live in a polarized world.  In this world where there is both good and evil, right and wrong, we create b[...]

Why Energies Stick to Us

Sun, 02 Jan 2011 06:30:19 +0000

(Eclipses, Velcro and Spiritual Magnificence) We are sitting in the midst of two energetic motions.  One is pulling away habitual comfortable surroundings, while the other is inviting us to peer into the unknown darkness.  And this darkness can be unnerving to view, particularly if we also feel unsteady in our body. It is as if the upcoming eclipse (Jan 4) is the doorway into what we have always wanted in our life, but have not let ourselves give any substantive energy towards manifesting. We have believed what our family, our society and our neighbors have  told us about ourselves.  In the eyes of others, we could not rise to spiritual magnificence.  So how could we possibly be worthy of even imagining our inner dream, let alone manifesting it? Of course, we can only see within another person what we can see within ourselves.  As we recognize our own spiritual gifts, others are prompted to feel their own gifts awakening within themselves. The full moon lunar eclipse on the Winter Solstice (Dec 21) is now ripping away the facades of habit, belief and behavior we have developed in relation to the outer world.  My guides are explaining that it is like the magic trick of pulling the tablecloth off of an exquisitely set table.  The wine glasses, plates, cups and silverware remain. They are now resting on the bare table.  Only the tablecloth is gone. In our current scenario the tablecloth represents the underpinning beliefs that we have used to create external circumstances of our life. The bare table represents our new foundation.  The wobbling wine glasses represent that off-balance feeling we might experience during these weeks of quick change.  And being that we are still practicing our ability to co-create with Spirit, a wine glass might topple over and need an external hand to steady it. On January 4 the second in a series of eclipses spanning several years will occur. You probably remember the intensity of the first of these eclipses, which occurred early last week during the Winter Solstice December 21, 2010. This first eclipse is pulling the tablecloth out from underneath us. The upcoming eclipse offers us the opportunity to step into manifestation in a new way.  But only if we let the tablecloth be completely pulled out from underneath us. Like many of the eclipses coming up in the next few years, the pair of eclipses (December 21, [...]

Completing this meditation allows you to have the energetic potential to engage with those energies coming into our planet in the next few years. This is the energetic right brain portion to a series of written essays (fall 2010 – winter 2011 newsletters, available at the website). Part of what the essays review is how, at this point in time, we are being called not to blame or point fingers externally, but to step forward using the upper heart chakra to know what it is that we need to do, to have the power to do it with the navel, and then to do it in commune with others using our collective connections in our 5th chakras. The guides wanted to create a meditation that places into the energy field of those interested the potential to do this.  It is not just the mental theory of the written essays, but rather the energetic that now lies within you For more Information: www.HealingChants.comDonations are most welcome!  office@healingchants.com or Here    [...]

Addressing the Arising Emotions of Fear and Anxiety

Fri, 17 Dec 2010 04:32:00 +0000

 (yes, everyone is feeling this one, even if you don't think you feel such things!)   Dear Friends, You are probably already feeling the effects of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse that will occur this coming Tuesday on the Winter's Solstice. Within the next two years we will experience many similarly intense eclipses to help us clarify emotional energies around fear and survival. My guides have shared that we are unwinding and rewriting our past experience of the loss of life and devastation that occurred during the last Great Shift. This shift happened when we moved into the Piscean Age, 13,000 years ago. Now we are moving into the Aquarian Age (officially on Dec 21, 2012). Free Events:   ANN ARBOR Tues, Dec 21 7:30pm Meditation Concert(in complete candlelight)   PHONE MEDITATION Sat, Jan 1st at 1pm EDT (New York City time) Stepping into 2011 with Courage and Compassion NEW - US, Canada, and many European phone numbers so you can avoid long distance charges     This Great Shift will not be the same as the last one, when Earth underwent an extreme fall in consciousness and the continent we call Atlantis was destroyed. Whether you take that as truth or myth, the experience and expression of fear is looming large from within our shared network of human consciousness at this time. My sense is that our bodies are feeling the upcoming energetic pattern of the Great Shift and even if we were not in form at that time our soul experienced the trauma of that shift. The memory of that experience is still within us individually, as well as within the shared collective consciousness of humanity. And it lies within our 1st chakra (the root chakra, at the base of our torso in our pelvis) as a force that causes us to feel out of balance. Because of this fear we question ourselves, our world and our ability to thrive and survive. In order to successfully move through this next Great Shift from our present Piscean Age into the Aquarian Age we must work to rewrite the experience of the shared consciousness of humanity.

Politics, the Sacred Masculine, the Divine Feminine and the Collective Consciousness

Fri, 17 Dec 2010 03:54:29 +0000

Canada and the USA as examples of Healing our shared Polarized Consciousness        - a message from Thoth and other Ascended Masters through Norma Gentile www.HealingChants.com A quick preface – in previous essays my guides have shared this with me: The inclusion of slavery as an active principle within the founding energies of the United States ultimately caused the collective consciousness of the country to vere off track. Rather than creating a collective consciousness reflecting principles of the Sacred Masculine, its shared consciousness grew to reflect primarily aspects of the profane masculine. In order to move into the Aquarian Age the planet, including the United States, must release the profane aspects of the masculine that many countries and regions have embraced.  In order to release the profane aspects of masculine energies, we must first recognize them in ourselves, our lives, and then in the larger context of politics, business, etc. Canada and the USA: Dancing with the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine  Like many who were born in the northern United States, my family roots reach back to many other countries, including Canada.  It is hard for me to imagine due to the current state of border security, but at one time the border between the two countries, whether made by stakes in the land or by one of the Great Lakes, was easily and frequently traversed by my family members.  We have found cottages and businesses and homes belonging to recent generations of my family members who lived and worked, nearly simultaneously it seems, on both sides of the border. Like many people with this sort of history, I spent summers in the north, sometimes in the US and other times in Canada, and became horribly confused about the proper way to pronounce certain words and spell other words.  I learned that you could put sugar on tomatoes. But only when certain family members were present. My guides frequently point out to me that the obvious circumstances of our lives are here for a reason.  And so as I’ve grown and explored the energetic context in which I live, I am coming to understand that I was exposed to both US and Canadian cultures not by accident but to support my soul’s journey. The cultures of the US and Canada are complementary.  Each represen[...]



Your Body, Your Soul, Your Compassion

Fri, 17 Dec 2010 03:46:56 +0000

    from Mary, through Norma Gentile www.HealingChants.com       - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In a recent verbal channeling Archangel Michael and Mary spoke about the human virtues we will be evolving into expressing in the coming year.  Each of these virtures is a reflection of our polarized reality and societies, which we are slowly unwinding as we move into the Aquarian Age.    Prejudice becomes Charity – reflected in acts of learning to care for ourselves first, in order to then care for others.        Judgment becomes Self Forgiveness - when we forgive ourselves we have no need to judge.       Vanity becomes Compassion for ourselves.   Seeing imperfections within ourselves lets us develop compassion for ourselves, and then true compassion for others.  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -         from Mary So much tumult in the human heart!  So much pain exists because much needs to be addressed and seen.  Those circumstances of your life, be they small issues or seemingly overwhelmingly huge, exist because there is something that your soul desires to learn.  And as your soul learns a lesson here upon the Earth, that lesson is shared with your soul in all the dimensions of your reality.   Here is one lesson:  Vanity   Vanity has two poles in your reality. One pole is obvious to you!  Someone who over dresses, is constantly monitoring their looks, and most likely loves to be told how fabulous they are is easily considered to be vain.  Granted this is a bit of a stereotype, but you get the idea. You consider vanity in terms of visual appearance.  But some can be vain about the quality of their voices, their home, their lifestyle and accomplishments or their children.     The other pole of vanity is far less obvious.  It is a lack of self-love.  It is a lack of self-care.  This is not referring to someone who throws on whatever clothes are at hand and takes little time to address their appearance.  Rather, this pole of vanity lives inside of you.   Each of you, ideally, had parents who instilled into you a love and honoring of yourself.  That is the primary task of parents.  But you do not live in an ideal world, nor did you grow up with parents who themselves lived in an ide[...]



POLARITY AND NEUTRALITY

Mon, 27 Sep 2010 10:52:00 +0000

Prejudice -- CharityJudgment -- Self ForgivenessVanity -- Compassion for Self   1 IntroductionI believe that prejudice, judgment and vanity are very visible at this time because they are on their way out of our reality.  And so we see them departing. But because we still have a bit more to learn about these behaviors, they may not be departing as swiftly as they might.  We still have some understandings to gain around how these behaviors have served us in the past and alternative ways of behaving in our newly emerging reality. 2 Sacred Space InvocationInvoking what Nature knows as unconditional love to surround and support us.  Inviting your own  connection to Archangel Michael to step forward into your awareness. Magnifying this connection throughout all the dimensions. 3 Energizing your Body with PranaWhen you breath as if you are filling your body from your lower back and hips upward, you open your navel chakra to take in more pranic energy which stimulates and charges the body with your life force. To the extent that your soul engages with your body, what your soul has come to do in your lifetime will be possible to do.  The quality of the soul’s engagement at the navel chakra determines the quality of prana available to energize your chakra system. A mis-tuned navel chakra means all of the incoming prana will also be mistuned.  Clearing and resetting your navel chakra to the quality of vibration of your soul allows you to take in pranic energy that suits you now.  When your navel chakra is tuned to your soul and body, you move from feeling that you are the victim or captive of life’s circumstances to knowing yourself as the center and captain of your life. 4 Meditation: Clearing and Charging the Primary Connection of Your Soul with Your Body As the navel chakra clears and reflects more accurately the vibration of the legally incarnating soul we become more aware of the remaining energy blocks. Our role is to simply notice and release when the cycle with an energy has come to completion.  What is in tune with us is like the air that surrounds us.  It is clear and invisible to us.  It vibrates at the same rate as our body.  When an energy is ready to leave us, its vibration shifts out of alignme[...]

MANIFESTATION 101 - Working with, not against the Creative Cycle

Sun, 12 Sep 2010 21:48:00 +0000

  The Sirian Portal - and stress! It is again that time of year where our solar system is bathed in Sacred Masculine energy from the sun of Sirius. This Sirian Portal, from July 23 until just before the September equinox, brings us a new level of access to qualities of the Sacred Masculine. Over the years we have sculpted and empowered the grail of the Divine Feminine, into which these Sacred Masculine energies are received. And each year the intensity of the Sacred Masculine energies increases. In part because we have built a stronger sense of honor toward the Divine Feminine, and in part because it is their balance that we are moving toward as we approach 2012. I've shared information in previous essays about 2012 marking the third time that conscious beings have tried to move from a world of lower dimensional duality into an upper dimension. My impression is that this movement will span another hundred and more years. When we arrive, the goal isn't perfection, but balance between the dualities of our reality.     (a side note from Thoth) The influx at this time each year of more and more Sacred Masculine energies allows us to experience, just a bit, the balance between the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine. We have spent many years familiarizing ourselves with the Divine Feminine. But the Sacred Masculine remains a quality of consciousness that is fairly elusive. Humanity is experiencing a strong learning curve regarding the proper and appropriate use and integration of Sacred Masculine energies.   During this influx of Sacred Masculine energies, I notice that many new opportunities are quickly presented to me. My personal challenge is not to run out and do whatever it is that I suddenly have the urge or opportunity to do. True, masculine energies are wonderful "doing" energies. But with this much masculine energy available, it is easy to become unbalanced, overly outbound in expression, and too wrapped up in external projects. Our western culture approves of "doing" (that is, after all, how we traditionally define masculine in our culture). And traditional jobs tend to frown on employees taking "spiritual rejuvenation retreat days!" Therefore it is hard for m[...]



MANIFESTATION 101 Working with, not against, the Creative Cycle

Tue, 17 Aug 2010 07:02:00 +0000

In our western culture we think of manifestation as being a linear process.  I think of something, I visualize it, I meditate on it and it appears.  We don’t often think of the creative process as being cyclical, in that it re-occurs regularly, and has various stages.  There are quiet portions to the Creative Cycle that occur before anything comes into form. These quiet portions are seldom noticed.  But it is while the energies of Spirit and Nature are gestating that we as humans can often nourish or accidentally trample upon something potentially manifesting in our lives.

Here is a meditation supported by the energetic presence of Archangel Michael, Mary and Thoth to help you notice and attend to projects that Spirit is already working on bringing into in your life.

1 Introduction to the Manifestation portion of the Creative Cycle  
2 Creating Sacred Space: Why include Nature Spirits in Your Sacred Space  
3 The Quiet Motion of Spirit   
4 Meditation – Allowing Spirit to Support You (even more)  
5 Prioritizing What We Nourish in Our Lives  
6 Meditation -  Letting Spirit Bless You  
*7 Blessing Song  
8 Tend your Garden, and Yourself  0
9 Our Shared World of Form and Global Environment
10 Releasing Sacred Space  
11 Closing – the meditation will continue  
  Total Time  62 mins

Blessing Song (#7) is excerpted from a live concert of spontaneous improvised songs given by myself and David Darling.  You can hear him playing cello underneath my singing. His music is available at iTunes, Amazon.com and also check him out on youtube and on his website, wwwDavidDarling.com.

HEALING with GRATITUDE those ANCIENT ENERGIES now DEPARTING

Thu, 12 Aug 2010 08:19:34 +0000

  Healing with GratitudeThose Ancient Energies now Departing  -- Insights from Nature, Gaia, Mary and Thoth      through Norma Gentile           www.healingchants.com   from Norma: Yes, a wave of ancient energies has almost completed their journey out of our planet. You might notice that the days seem to be getting calmer, as their vibration is no longer hitting up against the vibration of the physical Earth and our physical bodies. Will this be the last major release of ancient energies? Probably not. My guides say another wave will begin to exit in mid-fall. For this reason I include some ideas and insights for you to ponder. This particular essay comes primarily from a channeled meditation entitled “Ancient Energies Arise and Depart”. The entire recording of this meditation, including the actual healing meditations, channeling and additional information is now available to listen to as a CD or free mp3. I've included in it a special sound healing, Aguas Sagradas (Sacred Waters) recorded with cellist and Grammy-winner David Darling during a recent concert. Please see my website www.healingchants.com under “Meditation CDs” for more information.   from Mary Moving into a new relationship with all of the consciousnesses with whom we share our planet means letting go of our belief that anyone of us knows how another should act, should be, or even should heal. It very difficult to give away or force upon someone the energy of Gratitude. The true sensation of Gratitude brings you to rest.  It brings you into your body, and so into the center of your world. Having Gratitude for something or someone requires that you first be in relationship to yourself.  When we are more deeply in relationship to ourselves we are much less apt to try to extinguish what we perceive as external fires with our own personal energies.  Within a state of Gratitude, we are more able to sustain neutrality towards the buffeting winds of change and the incessant demands of external voices for our attention.  And within our personal state of Gratitude, the simple solutions provided by the consciousnesses with whom we share our world become[...]



CONNECTING CONSCIOUSNESS - an essay from Shesat and Thoth

Thu, 12 Aug 2010 07:59:00 +0000

Connecting Consciousness Insights on the Gulf Oil Leak (from Shesat and Thoth) -Norma Gentile     A note from Norma: I tend to not want to foreknow events, but rather receive from my guides insights about patterns and trends which are at the causal level of events. When I do receive information in the form of a ‘prophesy’, I tend to not share it, but rather ask the guides for information that I might share to help avoid the prophesized event.  Rarely have I decided that the undercurrents behind an event could only be addressed by making public the prophecy.  But during a group phone meditation in October of 2008 Thoth shared with me something that at the time I did not share aloud, but I later decided to pass onto The Sedona Journal of Emergence, and it appeared in their December 2008 issue as the article “Easing, not Heaving into Transition”.  I share an excerpt from that channeling now:    …a crisis around energy and land is apt to move onto the world’s stage.  The energy of this episode is likely to take the form of a major natural disaster involving oil drilling in the ocean.  It will be in a location and of a size that significantly impacts the food supply for millions of people.   This episode will force you to examine how you extract oil from within the Earth.  It will also force into the general media and into your awareness already known facts about the damage your current style of oil drilling has done to the planet.  It might be so devastating that oil drilling is banned by most countries.   This information is not shared as a way to create fear.  Rather, it is shared to remind you that change is constant, and what doesn’t change easily, bit by bit, will ultimately change dramatically.   Not surprisingly Shesat, with Thoth also present, stood by me during my recent group telephone meditation for the Gulf Oil leak.  She and Thoth both tend to give me ideas and some words, but leave it up to me to create full sentences.  For this reason I refer to it as a blended channeling.  Shesat and Thoth both acknowledge that the actions of humans affect other dimensions, i[...]



ANCIENT ENERGIES ARISE

Tue, 06 Jul 2010 19:47:00 +0000

Healing Meditations for Ancient Consciousness from Nature and new insights from Thoth   Through a series of meditations and insights, Thoth and others point out to humanity a doorway through which an ancient consciousness of the First Creative Cycle, long asleep within the Earth as oil, might now pass onto its own healing journey.  As this happens, humanity’s relationship with oil and other “inanimate” beings changes.  This is our next step.  Here are some ideas how we might begin it.

Connecting Consciousness - Humanity and Nature (meditation for Oil Spill in Gulf)

Thu, 27 May 2010 05:20:00 +0000

  A Meditation for the Gulf Oil Spill - Connecting Consciousness The meditation was given through me by Shesat, who is the female companion of Thoth.  He was also present, and shared some important observations.  One was that because of the attention humanity is now giving to the water, fish and environment in the Gulf, a connecting doorway has opened between our consciousness  and the consciousness of these other beings. Thoth weaves his information in between the meditations that Shesat gives. This lasts for about 50 minutes, and then there is a time of Q & A which draws out some additional information.   Some of this may be time-sensitive, so I did not edit the meditation.    Below is the original channeling from Thoth seemingly predicting the Gulf Oil Spill. It comes from my Phone Meditation/podcast "Easing, not Heaving into Transition",Oct 14, 2008. The transcription was published by Sedona Journal of Emergence December 2008. “...a crisis around energy and land is apt to move onto the world's stage.  The energy of this episode is likely to take the form of a major natural disaster involving oil drilling in the ocean.  It will be in a location and of a size that significantly impacts the food supply for millions of people. “This episode will force you to examine how you extract oil from within the Earth.  It will also force into the general media and into your awareness already known facts about the damage your current style of oil drilling has done to the planet.  It might be so devastating that oil drilling is banned by most countries.  “This information is not shared as a way to create fear.  Rather, it is shared to remind you that change is constant, and what doesn't change easily, bit by bit, will ultimately change dramatically.”It is my hope that this meditation and the others that are available as mp3s and CDs are of use to you in your life.  As always, donations help to offset the cost of maintaining the mp3 download site, sound editing, and such.  My blessings to each of you, -Norma More meditations, healing music, an[...]

Earthquakes, Emotional Intensity, EM Fields & Gaia

Thu, 29 Apr 2010 06:00:00 +0000

I have been watching the series of earthquakes that have occurred in the past few months, as have all of you. I noticed that they do not look the same, in my psychic vision. However, many of them seem to relate to the shift this past March 2010 in the electro-magnetic field (EMF) that surrounds the planet. Our bodies felt this shift. Our central nervous systems are on high alert as they sense something is changing, but what is it? Because of this re-tuning of the Earth it is difficult to maintain normal sleeping patterns, and our ability to relax and rest deeply is being challenged. I note that the shifting EMF of the planet seems to be the resultant of the physical Earth moving to reflect Gaia's own change. Gaia is taking another step into her own spiritual evolution, which is one of becoming pure emotion. The intensity of this spring is bringing us the opportunity to assess and adjust our priorities. We have been partially disconnected from the vibration of the Earth that our body has always known to be supporting it. Suddenly it is nearly gone. We sense a loss, but how can one understand with our rational mind that the body is feeling a loss which the mind doesn't even know about? Very few cultures or people have grown up understanding the vibrational support of the Earth as the mother of our physical bodies. The shifting electro-magnetic field of the Earth has left our bodies less able to nourish themselves directly from the energies of the Earth. It is as if our mother suddenly weaned our infantile energy system, and our bodies are being forced to seek out nourishment in other ways. This shift in the EMF has left our bodies feeling separated from an aspect of the Earth's energies we have always known. And we are no longer able to suckle this energy from the Earth. It is a loss that we are processing as both abandonment and death. Let me address the energetic pallor of death which is floating within the field of shared human consciousness. We are completing another smaller cycle within the much larger cycle which is leading u[...]



How Much of What You Believe is Yours to Heal is Really Yours to Heal?

Thu, 25 Mar 2010 17:25:00 +0000

  FINDING BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE: Consolidating what works, Releasing what doesn’t fit anymore by Norma Gentile   www.HealingChants.com   A series of Healing Meditations with Gaia, Nature and Archangel Michael to anchor the portion of your soul that is choosing to incarnate at this point in time into your body and your life.      How much of what you believe is yours to heal is actually yours to heal?    That which is not ours to heal we cannot heal.  That which is not ours to change we cannot change.  We merely hold those people, energies or situations back from their own developmental process of learning and evolutionary change when we hold onto them and insist that they heal according to our plan for them.  This is true even when we hold onto an energy or emotion in order to make someone feel safe or happy.   1 Introduction to Finding Balance 2 Creating Sacred Space with the Lower Dimensions 3 Archangel Michael Invocation 4 Meditation: Inhaling Your Soul into Your Body 5 Meditation: Connecting with Your Essence in the Lower Dimensions 6 Sound Healing: Tranquility 7 Meditation: Clearing Out to Let Your Soul In 8 Releasing What is not Yours to Heal 9 Releasing Sacred Space 10 Healing Yourself as a Service to Others Total Time: 54 mins     More meditations, healing music, and free newsletters at Norma's website www.healingchants.com If you enjoyed this podcast, please consider making a donation    [...]

Serving Spirit: BREATHARIANS IN OUR MIDST

Mon, 22 Mar 2010 15:44:00 +0000

Serving Spirit:  Breatharians in Our Midst By Norma Gentile    www.HealingChants.com This past month my friend, Elitom ben Yisrael, sat for a series of television interviews.  He has been a Breatharian for ten years.   For him, that means he doesn’t eat food or drink water, but rather nourishes himself from subtle energies.  He does this daily, typically through sitting meditation, Tai Chi, and yoga.  If you are curious to see and hear from him, the first of three videos is now available online here: http://suprememastertv.com/bbs/board.php?sfl=wr_content&sop=and&bo_table=download&search_table=schedule&d=y&sst=wr_num&s_target=4&stx=Elitom+ben+Yisrael In December 2003, Elitom and I did a workshop together entitled Breatharian Meditations (available as aCD or mp3 downloadfrom my website) offering a series of meditations that anyone can use to explore their own potential to more fully engage with the Breatharian wiring of their physical body. As a result both he and I get emails from people who are trying to become Breatharians, but often are doing so by simply not eating. Because of the release of these new interviews, and an upsurge in interest around Breatharianism, I want to make a few points very clear. As Elitom has stated repeatedly, he nourishes and feeds himself from all that is around him.  Breatharianism is not about ceasing to eat and disconnecting from the physical world.  It is not about rising above it all or escaping from the issues in daily life. Rather, it is a process of opening the Heart to a new consciousness where you know yourself as part of the intricate web of Spirit.  You become more connected to the world; feeling more, seeing more, and sensing more deeply all that is around you.  The cessation of needing to eat physical food is one possible resultant of this process of connecting more deeply into your own Spirit.  But it is not the only possible outcome. Almost everyone alive has the potential in their auric wiring to be a Breathari[...]



Asking Questions: Honoring Spirit in the Healing Process (and in world events)

Mon, 01 Feb 2010 01:36:00 +0000

Dear Friends, I'll be offering Private Healing Sessions in Atlanta (Feb 5-6), Tampa (Feb 12-13), Tucson AZ (Feb 28-March 1), and Sedona AZ (March 3-4). Also there are workshops in Tucson (Feb 26-28) and a concert and workshop in Portland OR coming up April 2-4. If you feel drawn to my work, please see my Calendar page for more information. So much has been written and shared by others about the chaos in the external world, and I thought I would share something about healing. For me healing is not fixing or making something better. Healing is the process of being present and creating a sacred container into which grief, fear, anger and all those uncomfortable but transformative human emotions might flow. As an example, I offer a sound healing, A Call to the Sacred Masculine. This is from a live concert of chant offered on January 24, 2010. You can listen to it here as a mp3, or watch the video on YouTube. In the background you are hearing the male voices of the Naqshbandi-Haqqani Sufi Order (www.haqqanisoul.com). Their presence assisted greatly in opening the portal to Spirit through which this song came. I offer it here, and my thoughts below, for your consideration. Notice that as you listen to the song you may find absolutely nothing happening. The healing within this song is subtle. It is incredibly gentle. So gentle that it isn't until you reach the end that the carminative effects of the small waves of healing within the song overtake you. Watch, and let the silence at the end of the song be where your body receives as much of the healing as it wants to receive. When you listen to the song again at another time, your body, mind and heart may receive additional healing in a different way This to me is the most profound type of sound healing possible. I did not set an intention to create an experience. Nor did I invoke a particular angel or guide to make a healing happen. Rather, I asked a question. "What is the new face of the Sacred Masculine that [...]



THE FORK IN THE PATH

Wed, 13 Jan 2010 08:31:00 +0000

THE FORK IN THE ROADRe-Making a Life Decision without Fear or Shame 1 Introduction   1:50 2. Invocation of Sacred Space  5:25 As we feel, sense, or see the energy of Archangel Michael existing within the Pure Energy of Nature of the 1st dimension, we automatically open our consciousness, and have access to Michael’s energy in all the dimensions of our reality.  3. A Quiet Song of Welcome    3:45 Tibetan Singing Bowl and Norma’s voice 4. The Fork in Your Path 6:10One of the greatest aspects of disconnection from Spirit is fear.  When any of us is in fear, we are not as connected to our own inner sense or inner world as we might be.  As a result we turn to the external world both for validation as well as for direction in what we should do. This includes how we should react or act, what we should value, what we should embrace and what we ought to find disdainful. As a result, the majority of humans incarnating on the planet tend to look to the external world for their motivation, rather than to their soul and their inner world to hear what it is that their soul truly desires for them, and what the journey of their soul might be.  5 How does your Soul want to embrace the Core of Your Body?One way to reengage your own sense of communion, not just with your quiet inner voice, but also with the greater world and the dimensions beyond, is to begin to feel how the journey that your soul has chosen is appreciated by others, looked upon and supported by beings in all dimensions, and ultimately how much your soul is loved by those beyond the stars.  6 A Sound Meditation – Clearing Fear   21:03 Here is a sound meditation to locate and engage your soul into the very core of your physical body. Begin by breathing and feeling your navel move.  Sound any tone from the core of your navel chakra, with the intention of uniting your soul and body.  Let the tone be the audible vibration of their shared agreement to cre[...]

The Fork in the Path

Wed, 13 Jan 2010 08:24:00 +0000

  The Fork in the Path Re-Making a Life Decision without Fear Living in Michigan, next to the crater of the Big 3 automobile companies, I’ve watched as the doom and gloom of the past years has slowly given way to the realization that change is the only option.  This past week I heard someone on the local NPR radio station, whom I wish I could credit here, saying that our collective fear of failure is the most important thing that we must change…that failure is inevitable when we try something new…and that in order to move ahead we must, as a society, remove the stigma we have placed on failure. I love this thought!    I would add that we must understand that failure isn’t an end.  It is the realization that we are walking down the least favorable of the various forks along a new and unfamiliar road.  Failure simply means “go back and try again”.  It is our fear that urges us to experience failure as a dead end to the path, and keeps us frozen, staring at the path’s end, rather than recognizing we can turn around and retrace our steps. Here is an excerpt from the newest meditation CD/podcast, based on the full moon eclipse gathering on New Year’s. It includes several sacred chants from myself, and an extended group sound healing to release and reset the energies of your chakras related to fear.  If you would like to listen to this recording, it is available as an mp3 or CD http://www.healingchants.com/recordings_med.html And if you would like to join me in person, I’ll be in Columbus OH this Friday evening (Jan 15) for a workshop followed by Private Healing Sessions on Saturday (Jan 16). Those of you who want to train with me in my system of energy and sound healing can come to Tucson Arizona Feb 26-28 or Portland Oregon April 3-4.  Both trainings are limited in size, and you can learn more at http://www.healingchants.com/itinerary.html One of the greatest aspects of[...]

      De-Emphasizing Fear Notes on darkness and illumination -Norma Gentile www.healingchants.com In the midst of the accumulating "dark" or introspective energies of the Northern Hemisphere’s winter months, I can't help but notice the parallels to our outer world, where fear is being created in greater and greater abundance. But is the creation of fear really happening successfully? Or are enough people seeing this constant Chicken Little "the sky is falling" attitude around events as something else? I am in the midst of wondering about darkness and the role lightworkers and those who are stepping away from polarity are being called to play in the world today. De-Emphasizing Fear Releasing the importance that we unwittingly give to both our small daily personal fears and our globally manifesting fears will change the choices humanity has available to it in the very near future. It is time for those who can do so, to address their own personal fears, so that our shared unconsciousness has within it a pattern of standing up honestly to fear and knowing it for what it is: a disconnection from Spirit. And when we are responding to fear we are not responding to Spirit.  If we can disconnect from Spirit than we can re-connect with Spirit as well.  This is particularly true around fear and finances, fear of the future, fear of government, fear of swine flu and illness, and the intentional creation of fear around 2012. Ultimately we are each responsible for addressing our own fears.  And remembering our roles as co-creators.  If we can create fear, we can un-create fear.  Here are some ideas about uncreating, or de-emphasizing fear that Archangel Michael and others have shared me over the past few months.   Just mentioning that there are “dark” forces implies that there are “light” forces as well.  When we identify som[...]

HELPING, HEALING, FIXING and SERVING are not the same

Tue, 20 Oct 2009 17:17:00 +0000

HELPING, HEALING, FIXING and SERVINGNotes on my own Healer's Journeyby Norma Gentilewww.healingchants.comDear Friends,When I first began to study energy healing, it was through a group known as The Emissaries of Divine Light. Some of you know this group through the writings of James Twyman. Their founder, who went by the spiritual name of Uranda, referred to their practice of energy healing as Attunement. This is not to be confused with Reiki Attunement. These are two separate energy practices. In his writings, Uranda explained that the term Attunement was chosen because it reflected the potential of each human to be in alignment or attuned more fully to SpiritAs I trained in this style of energy healing, I took for granted many of its most basic principles. The writings and teachings Uranda left behind simply made sense to me. But looking back after twenty years as a practitioner, I am just now seeing how fundamentally different the practice of Attunement is from many of the healing modalities I see in the world today.One unique aspect of Uranda's teaching was his language. In his writings, he deliberately chose certain words and phrases that were not common or didn't exactly "roll off the tongue." For example, he insisted that those who studied Attunement were practitioners or servers. Attunements were not given to someone but shared by a practitioner. Nowadays, many healers consider themselves practitioners. But to consider oneself a server puts a different spin on the healing process.Though physical healing may be one result of receiving an Attunement, this is not the principal goal in this modality of energy work. Serving a larger spiritual picture is the goal. In one story, Uranda describes being offered a large sum of money if he would heal a man's daughter of her illness. He refused to do s[...]



Living Well - an Essay from Thoth

Fri, 18 Sep 2009 04:40:00 +0000

An essay from Thoth, through Norma Gentile Thoth is one of those beings who appears on his own timeline and with his own agenda.  I’m passing on what he shared with me which is the basis for the meditation and additional information in the podcast LIVING WELL on Aug 25. (available under Meditation CDs at www.healingchants.com) As we move into the fall, I suspect the reason why he choose to share these thoughts now will become apparent. From ThothLiving well is more than just living.  Surviving is more than breathing while in physical form.  Life is another word for what is happening every moment, every day, in every cell and minuscule complex within your body and outside of your physical body.  Your form is but the frame for your consciousness. Your consciousness is to be contained within your form during a single lifetime.  Open to the outer world and you find countless numbers, beyond human measure, of consciousnesses surrounding you.  The sensation may be one of overwhelm as you realize the number and size of consciousnesses that surround you and overlap into your physical body space from other realities and dimensions.  These other consciousnesses are for the most part harmless to your own consciousness.  We are all co-existing here. Just beyond the veil or boundary of your thought are worlds that you are about to explore.  Just as sailing ships brought you in the past from one port to another, your heart and your ability to trust and know truth when it is presented to you are the vehicles for your journeys now.  Your travels will take you into these new realms, through the mists of veils now fading away.  Your journeys will take you far, and for some your bodies may not make the journey.  But your souls will indeed traverse the spaces, both within[...]

Compassion in Healing: Blessing what Ails Us

Fri, 21 Aug 2009 07:25:00 +0000

  In our zeal to clarify and heal ourselves, we sometimes forget that what we feel no longer suits us may indeed at one time have been a blessing to us.  Releasing any energies or issues is dependent on our ability to truly come into a state of compassion toward whatever we are releasing.  Coming into a state of compassion requires a lack of judgment towards ourselves as well as what we are releasing, and any other people or circumstances related to the energies or issues we are releasing.   When there is true compassion towards ourselves and what we are ready to release, then, and only then, are we completing our soul’s agreement with that energy. This compassion allows us to fully release the energy. Without reaching a state of compassion towards what we are releasing, we end up pushing and shoving the energy out of our space and our life over and over again.  It never truly departs. In almost all cases where we perceive something as being in our space, we have an agreement to learn from the other energy, and to allow the other energy to learn from us. At the conclusion of this process, it is our responsibility to release the other energy onto its next step.   In this fashion we honor that all energies are themselves growing and evolving in consciousness, and that all energies are active parts of All That Is.    These energies can range from Nature Spirits that we picked up in our feet while attempting to ground ourselves to someone else’s guide.  Sometimes there are DNA guides from ancestors who are long deceased, or simply an out-of-time angel who helped you when you are facing your first day of kindergarten.    Even what we might perceive as dark or malevolent energies are energies t[...]



Judgment and Michael Jackson:

Fri, 10 Jul 2009 22:02:00 +0000

Dear Friends,Below are insights from Archangel Michael and myself regarding this summer's "homeopathic" eclipses and our planetary shift away from judgment. The first eclipse, meant to help us learn about emotional boundaries and open hearts, occurred the day of Michael Jackson's memorial service.First, a few short Announcements: My monthly articles and free sound healings are now available in English, German and Spanish online through www.spiritofmaat.com This is different from the blog / newsletter, which you are reading now. This  is available in Spanish and English (subscribe at www.healingchants.com)New York City I have private sessions available on the evening of Wed, July 22, Thurs, July 23 day and eve. Sessions are in English or Spanish. If you are interested, please read more at the Private Sessions page (or send it to your friends)St. Louis, Missouri Tickets are now online for my concert and workshops. Private sessions are available in person Sun-Tues, Aug 2-4. On July 7, the day of Michael Jackson's funeral, we experienced a minor lunar eclipse. Think of it as a homeopathic eclipse meant to expose our own inner issues and help us clarify emotional boundaries.What are we learning? That in Michael Jackson, as in any of us, there is the expression of both sides of polarity. In such a visible public figure all is magnified. And it becomes difficult to categorize him because his life includes both sides of polarity. And yet that is exactly what Unity Consciousness is all about. Unity Consciousness is the unified expression of our polarized reality. And in that unification, we hold someone in a space of consideration rather than judgment. Learning how to do that, and realize when we [...]



Observations on the deaths of public figures: How their passing opens our world to new Spiritual energies

Fri, 10 Jul 2009 21:55:00 +0000

Like most people with the ability to see spiritual energies, I tend to open my sight when working and then close my sight when not in use. So when something breaks through and presents itself, I know I must listen.And now for a note on current events. Take it with whatever size of salt you prefer; a grain, an ounce, or a few pounds…As I said above, when I close down my psychic eyes it is because I need to focus on this more physical world. Yesterday where I live, just outside of Detroit Michigan (Motown), there was a series of very strong storms. Not unusual for this area and this time of year. What struck me was that the wind in the storms (unusual, nearly hurricane force) contrasted to an unusually quiet sensation within the land here. There was a deep stillness rising up from within the Earth to meet the ferocity of the storm. Almost like a mother containing a young child in the midst of an emotional episode. The emotions raged, and yet there was a sense of calm.And in the midst I felt a deep sigh coming from the physical Earth as the hearts of many people who would never think of themselves as having anything to do with the word "spiritual" opened. My guides reminded me that it matters not if our hearts open in joy or grief, simply that they open.Through the open gateway of our hearts Spirit pours into our shared world. Like a seldom used water faucet, those first Spiritual waters pouring through a newly opened heart may be rusty, bringing up old emotions that simply need to be released. Then the clear water pours out. And these hearts are available to express Spirit into our world.As humanity clarifies their hearts, the Earth can release emotional energies t[...]



MEDITATIONS FOR CHANGE

Meditations and Teachings from Archangel Michael, Mary, and the Hathor Atamira, through Norma. Given on the Summer Solstice,  June 21, 2009Donations welcomePurchase this podcast as a CD Purchase a CD of Norma's live sound healings1  Introduction    1:23Change is allowing what is already present to carry us rather than drag us.   The sensation of being carried uplifts our heart and lets us know that all is well.  The sensation of being dragged gives us the reverse impression.2  A Teaching on Grounding and Change    7:38Breaking the cycle of judging something as being wrong, or even of being right, is a large piece of being able to deal with moving through cycles of change very quickly and easily.In the New Age world of thought, it appears easy to consider our soul, or some part of us, as also existing in the upper dimensions.But what about the lower dimensions?  What if a reflection of ourselves also existed in the 2nd and 1st dimension.  What if we open our consciousness to re-connect with aspects of the 1st and 2nd dimension that reflect who we are in the 3rd dimension?3  Inviting Sacred Space (with Archangel Michael and Nature)  5:24Just as we exist in each dimension, so too does the consciousness of Archangel Michael.  His energetic pattern is imprinted upon every dimension, including those outside of this 12 dimensional reality.  Whatever portion or part, aspect or face of Archangel Michael that is naturally connected to you and already working with you is magnified when you invite Michael’s energy into your awareness.  You may know Michael by another name.  It does not matter.  As you invite Michael to be pres[...]

Resting Back into Ease

Mon, 23 Mar 2009 20:42:00 +0000

There is no time like the present to be fully present.There is no time, at this point in time, to not be fully here.-Archangel Michael, through Norma, March 2009____________________Resting Back into Ease  -by Norma Gentile, sound shamanIn some ways it is thrilling, and there have been moments of expansion and ecstasy.  But it has also been terrifying, especially for those who have no experience of spiritual energies or who have difficulty moving through and expressing their emotions. Even for those of us with an understanding of the larger picture, it can be frightening or startling to feel what we have held as theory come into actual form.Gaia has recently shifted back to the lower physical energy and so too the Earth has settled back into the lower dimension of energy to which we are accustomed.  Because of the expansion that we experienced at the higher dimensional energy, we are having a difficult time with the lower contraction phase now.  It is like being on vacation for a month in Hawaii, and having to return to a cold and grey northern city.  All that we find uncomfortable is in our awareness.  And we don’t like it!   When Gaia is in her higher emotional energy state, our lives change rapidly.  After several weeks or more of seeing change come quickly, we slow down into the denser reality where change can take awhile.  Seeds that were planted will grow, but at a pace that is partially determined by the density of the larger world and our connection into the mass unconsciousness of all life relating to the Earth.  This can be frustrating as what works in one reality does not work in the othe[...]



HONORING OUR ANCESTORS AND SPIRIT WITHIN

Sun, 22 Mar 2009 02:05:00 +0000

Songs and Meditations 1. Introduction 2 A Meditation Song with Tibtan Bowl from Atamira (a Hathor guide) There is a desire within each of us to find that inner tone or quality that reflects who we truly are.   We seek to find a place within ourselves that allows us to feel ultimately received. This internal space allows us to feel we are truly loved, just the way we are.3 Releasing into Spirit The quality of our expression into the outer world reflects the quality of our inner world.  This inner tone or vibration is the quality that others sense intuitively. 4 Ubi Caritas et Amor, Deus ibi Est (chant and meditation)Where Tenderness and Love abide, There is GodRevealing those qualities of tenderness and love that are in our lives reveals where God or Spirit resides in our lives.   Who we are  is a reflection of that Spirit of God which vibrates, sings and lives within each of us.  Let yourself relax and receive. Feel your feet and let the sound move through you.  When you are ready, let your Spirit sing.5 Our Ancestors and Our Spiritual Gifts  How is it that your soul has received the gifts of your ancestors, and fashioned these gifts into your own life’s tapestry?  How have you integrated what you see as a shadow gift into your life?  Can you imagine that your ancestor’s souls created these gifts, both of the light and of the shadow, just for you?  And that your soul has chosen to receive them? In some fashion you have received all of these gifts, and made them your own.6 O factura Dei – a meditation song  The prophet within each of us knows that Spirit is present. [...]

A LITTLE SOUND HEALING for YOUR SOUL

Wed, 11 Feb 2009 18:32:00 +0000

On a  winter’s eve close to the February full moon, I offered a sound healing and meditation here in my home town in Michigan.  This is an excerpt from that evening.  The second song you hear is O Rubor Sanguinis, which I dearly love and have recorded twice.  It appears on both of CDs Mediation Chants by Hildegard of Bingen (newly re-released) and my album of live sound healings, Songs of Spirit.1. A Spoke Invocation of Sacred Space2.  Sancta Maria  an improvisation to invoke the Divine Feminine healing presence into the room.3. The Spiral Path of Healing (a little talk)4. O Rubor Sanguinis, a song which invites the listeners into stillness. 5. Chispas del Amore an improvised sound healing in Spanish (some of this is without text)6. Take a step to the side - a little talkWhat is coming your way from Spirit that you aren’t expecting?7. An Unexpected Journey with Spirit (a sound healing experience)  You may notice a bit of uneasiness at some points in this sound healing.  That is intentional.  The more sure we are of our path, the more difficult it is when Spirit and our Soul decide to create a new road for us.  Here is a little sound healing to help you experience that journey.If you would like to receive notices of my concerts and workshops, or read a bit about my individual healing practice, see my website, www.healingchants.com.  Naturally there is a newsletter you can sign up for, and you can see me sing on YouTube as well.[...]

GENERATING STILLNESS: Meditations for Peace within and without

Wed, 14 Jan 2009 18:29:00 +0000

includes a song from Norma's album MEDITATION CHANTS of Hildegard von Bingen (order CD and mp3 download)GENERATING STILLNESS:Meditations for Peacefrom Thoth, Shesat, and the Ascended Masters, through Norma Gentile1. IntroductionMy guides remind me that peace is the result of inner stillness, connection and knowing oneself. When we spend time being who we are, we generate a quality of stillness that makes peaceful actions more appealing than violence. 2. Nature’s Unconditional LoveThe Pure Energy of Nature is the most amazing tool for healing.  It is a replenishing and rejuvenating energy for our bodies, and for our entire being and life-force. Our ability to manifest into form and the ability of our soul to create our body is hinging primarily on the Pure Energy of Nature.  3. Welcoming Archangel MichaelWhen I invoke AA Michael, I ask that the aspect of his energy which reflects how he is already supporting and connecting to your soul to step forward and be magnified.  Sometimes this is also an opportunity for the person to become more consciously aware of the connection they already have to Archangel Michael or the other Archangels. 4. Conscious Agreements in Your Body and Our World (Shesat)The physical body registers sensations kinesthetically of what is going on all around us, two, three, four, five or six feet away from us.  Oftentimes when something begins to manifest as illness or noticeable discomfort, we look at the body itself.  We forget to look outside of the body, to where it is probably coming from; the subtle [...]

EASING, NOT HEAVING, INTO TRANSITION

Meditations and Teachings from Mary, the Ascended Masters, Thoth and Shesat, through Norma GentileWe are learning how to be steady in the midst of chaos.  As we deepen our ability to find within ourselves a calm center, we offer that same security and connection to those around us.

CHAOS, CREATION AND HEALING: Meditations for Your Body and Our Earth

Sun, 15 Jun 2008 04:25:00 +0000

1 IntroductionChaos can be a step in creating a healing pattern which resolves into order2 What does Nature feel as unconditional love?An Invocation and Exploration of Unconditional Lovefrom the perspective of the Nature Spirits (2nd dimension) and Pure Energy of Nature (1st dimension)  Unconditional love, as felt by Nature Spirits, may be different than what we humans  think it is.  First, define the space you wish to make sacred. Nature spirits within a room echo our activities – from TV watching to yoga to meditation.  To create a healing space don’t invite them all. Invite only those that vibrate at what they consider to be unconditional love.  Watch – it will be different from what you think it will be, because they, not you, are doing it.3 Pure Divine Energy of NaturePerhaps this is the Divine Matrix others speak of.  The pure, Divine energy of Nature as I know it has a gentle, rich, almost thick watery quality.  This is a first dimensional energy, and is the source of all form.  It is the energy from which the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences emanate.  Listen, and most people can feel it for themselves during the meditation.4 Potentize Healing with the Pure Energy of NatureThere is always a level of consciousness within form.  When I interact with that level of consciousness as a peer, rather than as its master, I find it easier to hear the opinions and ideas that it would like to share with us[...]

AWAKENING TO YOUR BODY'S NATURAL INTUITION

Mon, 03 Mar 2008 01:34:00 +0000

Meditation and Teaching, excerpted from Sound Shamanism Weekend Retreat.

We are telepathic at every chakra, even our Navel and 2nd chakras. But we over-ride the information that they give us constantly with our minds. Over and over again we listen to external voice, rather than our own internal voice. One result is that we do what we don’t need to do, and end up with much more to do than our soul had planned for us each day.

In order to complete what we believe must be done, we often call in ‘caffeine guides’. There are lower level guides that tend to be pushy, but help us do all thatt we think we must do.

My point is that if we stop doing what we don’t need to do, we won’t need to call in these pushy energies, because we will only have to do what our soul planned for us to do each day. While these energies are in our bodies, it is very hard to hear what are legitimately the issues and needs of our soul.

Here is a clearing meditation which allows you to release these ‘caffeine guides’ and attract guides who are more comfortable for your body and more deeply in tune with your soul.

This Podcasts contains----- a 17-minute meditation to release pushy energies behind lower back (caffeine guides) and a 7-minute talk on the new direction of incarnation.
