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 Michael
You, 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 Norma
I 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 Michael
Consider 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 Creation.

For many millennia those souls incarnating as humans agreed to bath themselves within the energies of emotions, thereby creating more and more emotional energies. And this is precisely what is causing your current difficulties. In this state of separation your ability to access 'free-will' and generate energies relating to emotions has been of service to all of Creation. As we all (even those in other dimensions) move now into a time of reconciliation, humanity is slowly awakening to the falsehood that is your emotion known as fear.

The Three Marys
We who speak as Mary define human fear as the reaction when a human is disconnected from Spirit. In the past, fear was needful in order to function apart from Spirit listening only to your free-will. The cultivation of this emotion kept humanity from accessing its innate connections to Spirit. Now, its usefulness has past.

The nature of human consciousness within a reality that includes fear is to cling to the known patterns of behaviors, beliefs and lifestyles. Clinging to the past ways of functioning generates and enlarges the emotional energy waves pertaining to the sea of polarity. However, before fully departing from the sea of polarized consciousness, it appears to be the choice of those incarnating as humans (and we might add all those in any type of form visible to humanity) to explore the various waves created during your time of existing within polarity, and investigate both the gift and lesson each behavior, belief and related emotions have brought.

Hence the issues relating to power, authority and your concept of what 'masculine' is in your world.

Note from Norma, based on insights from Mary Magdalene
Obeying authority keeps us safe as children, perhaps as employees, but does not feed our inner emotional and spiritual self. We become stagnant, bored and disinterested in life. We have ceded our spiritual inner authority to another, whom we view as an external authority. We deny or limit our ability to access our own spiritual tools; including the innate sense of our inner strength, the knowing of our Higher Self and our soul's purpose. This is the primary pattern we are working on now, and will be working on world-wide for the next several years.

When we step into a new habit or behavior and fully embrace it, the energies relating to the previous version of the behavior or pattern simply have no place to be within us. But, as Archangel Michael states, we also have decided that we will seek to understand the reasons we embraced the old patterns and how they served us. Then our release of these energy patterns arises out of gratitude, not fear.

As a result we become aware of the gifts and lessons within each behavior or habit. This type of release brings a completion to our individual process and offers a resonant healing of the pattern to our larger world. In this moment we have the opportunity to allow the energies of our experiences and emotions related to obedience and authority to move onto their own evolutionary path.

Mary Magdalene
Healing is a term I hear those of you incarnating now frequently use. It is a word that has nearly lost its true meaning. What if healing were redefined not as fixing, but as nurturing the smallest and most vulnerable seedling inside yourself? What if the garden containing this most tender of sprouts was always bathed within the loving sunshine of Spirit? Reflecting upon this, perhaps, allows for a deepening into your own healing. May each be blessed and awakened with this reading.
-Norma

Here 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 much as we are connected to our Heavenly Soul something different happens in our lives. Are you ready?

(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.

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 much as we are connected to our Heavenly Soul something different happens in our lives. Are you ready?

FEELING SAFE in a Turbulent World

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

Boundaries, Change and Healing...insights from the Healer's Perspective
Quietly Wondering (a new song)

Dear Friends,

One advantage to working with so many people in healing sessions is that I see the common threads we are all weaving into (and releasing out from) our lives. 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 Journey
All 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 safe
Whatever 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 always update others about the changes you are making. How much someone listens to that information is not up to you. You can send an email, but the other person has to choose to read it and take the time to understand its content.

This is one reason that profound change is so difficult. The mythology of the Hero's Journey illustrates this concept of change and interconnectedness. The protagonist must leave the village and undergo a quest in a far off land. Only after the completion of the quest does the protagonist return to the village as the Hero. Change happens while separated from the village community. And that change can be met with acceptance or fear by those in the village.

 

Before you continue reading, move into a moment of contemplation. Click to listen to the sound healing below. I promise, there are plenty more insights and 'brain candy' in the next section!

 

Wondering Quietly
- an improvised song from a Sacred Chant Gathering
(if you are near Ann Arbor please join me for a simlar Gathering on Saturday, May 21)



Body-to-Body and Soul-to-Soul Cords
The spiritual connections we have with each other, soul-to-soul, are perfect. While incarnated, we have energetic cords available to us that reflect our soul-to-soul connections, as well as the energetic cords we share body-to-body with those in this lifetime. The body-to-body cords reflect our personalities and the issues our soul have decided to address in this lifetime. The experiences and resulting choices that you make travel along these energetic body-to-body cords and let others know when you are changing.

The cords carry an informational pulse that lets people in your life know what you are doing. (Yes, like a Facebook status update!) Each person can listen to the information, or choose to ignore it. When someone listens to the information about a shift you have made they may or may not choose to act on it. For this reason none of us can heal or change another person. Only their soul can do that. The changes you make are always offered to others as informational possibilities, nothing more.


Receiving Change more easily in Our Life
When we are grounded into our own body we tend to be able to receive the information that travels along the body-to-body cords from others with ease. We can feel the quality of vibration that is our physical body and the quality of knowing that reflects messages from our own soul. Therefore, we know what is ours to do and what is not ours to do. We can let other people explore and have new relationships to the world, and then bring those new ideas to us. New ideas are not threatening, they are a curiosity to be explored.

When any of us is ungrounded we tend to be fearful, and maintain a high degree of control over our life experience. We don't feel safe and spend much of our attention and life-force in organization and control modes. We define our world by all that is perceived as external to ourselves, i.e. other people. Because we define ourselves by how we believe others see us, we rely on others to define our world. When someone in our world begins to change, our world is threatened.


Separating Yourself Energetically from Others
This is especially true of people in our lives who are narcissists or those who tend to control others. When clients are dealing with such people the body-to-body energy cords can be very active, and attempts at change, or even thinking about change, can bring up much discomfort. Client's report that it feels like the other person is 'reading your mind' and preventing you from moving forward.

I have developed a trick to utilize in this situation. This will prevent others from psychically seeing the changes that you are making, and encourages you to not wander over into their energies as well. Remember, if someone's energy is in your space then your energy is also in their space. Since you can't change them, start with what you can change: yourself!

To begin, sense the body-to-body energy cords that exist between yourself and the other person. You don't need to be super psychic to do this. Allow yourself to sense any area of discomfort, heaviness or even loopy thoughts you are experiencing. These are all symptoms of the body-to-body cords being active between yourself and another person.

As you feel whatever you are feeling, allow yourself to also open into your own heart, and your own compassion. How much pain is the other person trying valiantly to protect themselves from experiencing? When any of us puts effort into protecting ourselves, it is likely because whatever we might otherwise experience is very scary and painful. Compassion for another allows you to find the soul-to-soul cords that exist between yourself and another person, whether they are incarnate in physical form or have passed into spirit..

From this quiet heart space imagine encouraging the other person to remain exactly where they are. Imagine telling them that they have enough strength to follow the journey of their own soul. This is a healing that you can offer, but not impose. You might even imagine that this encouragement is wrapped up in a gift box and placed near them. Do not force them to open it in your imagination. Simply leave it for them to discover, when the time if right.

Now allow that other person to create an image of you out of their own energy. Sort of like a scarecrow or replica version of you. The replica that you see may not at all look like you. Allow that version of you to reflect how the other person may see you.

Remember, we can only see in others what we can see already in ourselves. And we tend to see in others that which we are most needing to love and/or change in ourselves. Many clients find that the scarecrow version of themselves looks very little like how they see themselves! And there are often insights about wounds that you and the other person are working on together, at a soul level. As you allow your imagination to translate spiritual information during this process you are apt to psychically sense what someone else is projecting onto you. And, you might spend a moment or two asking what you are projecting onto them that isn't really what their soul and body are like in this lifetime.

There are many levels to this process, and each time you do it new insights will arise. Ultimately, encouraging another person to build an energetic scarecrow replica of you lets them interact with the replica instead of your personal energies. It is not something that needs to be done for everyone in your life. It is a tool that is available when necessary.


You changed, they don't have to change
In order to maintain boundaries with others we must begin within ourselves. My mentor-teacher John Friedlander used to tell students to 'send a psychic change of address card' to people in our life after a workshop. I believe that this was his way of indicating that we had undergone a change, but no one else needed to move. That is why at the end of a healing session I say you have permission to change, and no one else needs to change. You can keep shifting and changing, and all those with whom you share your life can feel safe in their own worlds, feeling only the change that their souls are ready to receive. You changed, they don't have to change.

My blessings of change and transmutation to each of you,
-Norma

I am very good at helping to lift off heavy energies and get chronic issues to begin to move. Any energy released goes home, to follow its own growth and evolution. This means that what is released does not return. And it means that those energies with awareness know that I mean to help them. In this way your agreement to "keep them safe" is brought to completion, because they are released with honor and respect onto their next step. This is true of all energies, big or small, that your soul and body are ready to release.

Remember that any energy in your body or aura that is not in time or in tune with you will cause a slow, steady draining of your vitality. This leads to larger issues arising in the physical body, emotional overwhelm, and psychic cloudiness. A complete "deep cleaning" regularly can help you find, address, and release what is no longer yours to carry. This frees you up to engage fully with your own life's issues. (and yes, we can address life issues as well in the session).

A recording is made of the session. When you listen to the recording your guides and the healing angels will return to continue to help your personal inner understanding and release continue. Sessions are $215 and last about an hour. Please be in touch with me to secure an appointment time. office@healingchants.com or 734-330-3997. Read more about private healing sessions here

Sacred Songs, Chants and Healing
not a workshop, not a concert, something inbetween...

LISTEN to a Song created in a similar gathering last week

Just as Hildegard created sacredness with daily devotional chanting, we can too. Click on the image to the left, and you will see how the caps of one level of the circle of Angels(and humans) creates the body and face of the next highest row. In this illumination, Hildegard clearly shows the interdependency of all realms, from the highest of the Angelic levels down to those of us here within the Earth.

Come celebrate this season in a circle of sacred chants as Norma Gentile leads a sequence of Sacred Songs and Healing Chants. All are welcome to participate by chanting, singing, toning or meditating.  This is a time of shared co-creation in sound, Spirit and deep silence.

Meditation #49 from February 21, 2016

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 channeled healing songs. More of Norma's healing songs, along with videos, can be found under Sound Healings and Recordings. Her albums are available oniTunes and at Amazon.

 


These meditations are very similar to what I offer in my Private Healing Sessions. If you are drawn to this idea, read more about my healing sessions here.

Polarity - Are You In?
spoken audio meditation and healing channeled songs

Dear Friends,

A short note to start: 
Friday, May 6 is a New Moon and Supermoon. 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 Mary
Compassion 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, express themselves into both sides of polarity. Simple truths, he pointed out, are merely facts, and can't do this. The opposite of a fact, such as 2 + 2 = 4 is merely a falsehood, such as 2 + 2 = 3. For this reason Great Truths demonstrate the very essence of polarity; that one side of a polarity is equally as true and strong as its opposite side.

This idea of both sides of Great Truths being true arose, it seems, during the time that Niels Bohr was researching the nature of the electron, a sub-atomic particle. Or was it a wave? Quantum mechanics was finding that electrons exhibited behaviors associated with both a particle and a wave. From what I can tell all sub-atomic materials are now considered neither particles nor waves, and both particles and waves. A perfect example of the fundamental nature of our reality as being built upon polarity.

Even the 
nature of light is considered to be both a wave and a particle.

So if such basic components of our world exist simultaneously as opposite versions of themselves, why would we, living here in human bodies, exist on only one side of this polarity? After all, we exist here within a physical world built upon atoms whose components exist in both polarities of particle and wave simultaneously.


To me, this is why mystics have always seen the nature of reality as being fluid. Not quite solid, not fully ether…a bit of both, and yet fully neither. Scientists are now coming into agreement with this vantage point. From a spiritual perspective, I interpret this as meaning that it is not about meditating our way to a different reality. It is about both BEING (meditating) and DOING (action) our way to a different reality.

I realize many people believe that they can change their life by thinking. Thinking a lot and thinking often! But we live in polarity, which means creation happens because both poles, Doing and Being, are fully engaged. Thinking is a small aspect of the Doing side. (I know, you probably anticipated that I would classify thinking within the Being side.) But thinking (or avoiding thinking certain thoughts) implies that an end goal has already been decided upon. Being, on the other hand, implies an open awareness of possibility. During times of Being there is observation without judgment. The experience of Being allows for the spiritual energies to flow into Doing.
 

How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.
-Niels Bohr


There is power in meeting opposing viewpoints. When we have to muster our energies and bring our beliefs into coherent thoughts, expressing ourselves through language and actions, then and only then are we impacting the external world. Here is a fundamental paradox; we must be insightful, and yet those insights only exist in the world if we act upon them. BEING and DOING dance together. Here is one of the most important Great Truths of our duality!

I offer several 
healing songs below, as well as a new spoken audio meditation, HEALING FROM WITH POLARITY; The Gift of Polarity, How and Why we use Polarity in Our Lives.

May you each be blessed, and offer that blessing to all in our shared world,
-Norma

Private Healing Sessions
(offered in person or by phone)

I am very good at helping to lift off heavy energies and get chronic issues to begin to move. Any energy released goes home, to follow its own growth and evolution. This means that what is released does not return. And it means that those energies with awareness know that I mean to help them. In this way your agreement to "keep them safe" is brought to completion, because they are released with honor and respect onto their next step. This is true of all energies, big or small, that your soul and body are ready to release.

Remember that any energy in your body or aura that is not in time or in tune with you will cause a slow, steady draining of your vitality. This leads to larger issues arising in the physical body, emotional overwhelm, and psychic cloudiness. A complete "deep cleaning" regularly can help you find, address, and release what is no longer yours to carry. This frees you up to engage fully with your own life's issues. (and yes, we can address life issues as well in the session).

A recording is made of the session. When you listen to the recording your guides and the healing angels will return to continue to help your personal inner understanding and release continue. Sessions are $215 and last about an hour. Please be in touch with me to secure an appointment time. office@healingchants.com or 734-330-3997.
