A Series of Meditations from Norma Gentile and her guides

1. Introduction to the Chakras in the New Aquarian Age
2. Two ways of Creating
3. Creating Sacred Space
4. Healing in the Aquarian Age
5. Meditation on the New Heart
6. Creating in the 5th dimension / Empowering the throat chakra

12 Releasing Sacred Space, Guides and Helpers

We will cleanse, clear and recharge each of the chakras, including two newly emerging chakras, your panic tube and your navel chakra.  It is your navel chakra that supplies the basic prana for all of the other chakras in your body.   Your chakras empower your physical body. 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

 (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).

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. We do that together.

I invite you to join me as you feel drawn to do so.

My blessing to each of you,

-Norma

NEW - LISTEN TO MY
DECEMBER SOUND HEALING
from a live concert with Harp, Tibetan Bowls and Voice

Beginning in early November and running until nearly the end of January, our planet will be passing through a very dense area of space. It is a field of energetic debris caused by emotions, but these aren't our emotions. But the energies we will be encountering will open up and resonate our own emotions.

During this time we will have a much greater ability to clarify our own emotions. We will also have much greater access to those portions of ourselves that exist outside of our known third dimensional world. Music is one way to open a conscious portal between ourselves and these other aspects of our soul.
Here is an article that explores more deeply how music healing works, along with a sound healing from a recent meditation concert.



A Note on Phone Meditations and CDs of Meditations and Teachings:

As of today, I have 26 Meditations and Teachings recordings available. They cover all on different subjects, some are direct channelings from my guides, most often Archangel Michael, Mary, the Hathor Atamira, Thoth, Shesat or a group of Ascended Masters. Most of them invoke Sacred Space and then focus on an issue and provide time for your guides and angels to work with you energetically.

Many are drawn from the live Phone Meditations that I offer each month. About half contain healing songs or chants. All are offered freely as podcasts (you can subscribe directly on iTunes > Podcasts > Norma Gentile) or at cost CDs. At this time donations provide the funding for the free monthly (or so) Phone Meditations, the recording and editing process, posting them online and paying the monthly fee to maintain them online for free download. As of today, more than 40,000 downloads of these meditations has occurred. And chances are you have participated. Thank you! I know it is your energy that shapes each meditation and newsletter, and helps pull the information and insights that I share through me from Spirit.

I look forward to many more meditations, and many more downloads! And yes, please share these newsletters, podcasts and phone meditations with your friends, your email circle and others.

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

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 represents an aspect of the male / female polarity. Experiencing life within both, I can feel and appreciate the depth of honor that the shared Canadian consciousness has for graciousness, beauty, honor and those things generally associated with the feminine. As I have created my career path primarily in the US, I have come to appreciate the masculine clarity in action that the collective consciousness here has embraced. I am fortunate to be able to access these two distinct consciousnesses and their respective qualities in my life.  

 

I understand the consciousness of polarity as existing on both microcosmic levels in my daily life and macrocosmic levels in world events. The personal level of judging what is good or bad in my daily experience is my microcosmic experience of polarity consciousness.  My immersion into the national consciousness’ of both the US and Canada allows my guides more ease to share through me insights on the balance of male and female polarities related to these two countries on the macrocosmic end of the scale.

 

As humans we now live in polarity consciousness. In order for one extreme to exist another extreme must also exist.  For example, in politics if there are liberals then conservatives also exist. If something is defined as good then something else, probably its opposite, is defined as bad. Eventually this will change – but not yet.  In order for us to move out of polarity we must first understand it and create within it both the Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine. Only then will the collective consciousness of humanity shift.

 

 

Chaos, as Piscean and Aquarian Ages meet

The much lauded Aquarian Age, which makes its official entrance on December 22, 2012, began to influence our planet in tangible ways nearly a thousand years ago.  In order to complete our exploration of polarity consciousness, we have used a very special energy that is only available during the time of transition between Ages, in this case from Piscean to Aquarian Age, to manifest a series of issues related to polarity.   

 

Imagine if you would the waves of an ocean.  They move in succession, one after another, in the same direction as the wind, across the ocean.  What if there was another set of waves, created by a wind moving in another direction?  What would happen when these two sets of waves met?  Chaos.  And the energy of both sets of waves would be released into this chaos.  

 

That chaos energy is what we are using to create our reality with now.  The waves of the Piscean and Aquarian Ages are bouncing against each other in the sea of consciousness of all Beings related to this region of space.  It will not last long according to cosmic time, just a bit more than a few hundred years.  But its climax point is right about now.  And so humanity, and other beings of consciousness with whom we share this reality, are being tossed about in our little third dimensional rowboats.  My guides often remind me that our shared collective consciousness is thrilled to have so much energy with which to create our reality.  But our personalities might beg to differ!

I find myself alternating between euphoria (what a great time to be in human form) and disbelief (how could my soul have even considered putting itself into this cauldron of chaos and tumult?)  These final energetic waves of the Piscean Age colliding with the new energies of the Aquarian Age are allowing us to create extremes of polarity around issues both microcosmic and macrocosmic. The ferocity of politics, earth changes and weather are some of the visible issues reflecting our desire as humans to clarify what we hold dear to us. 

 

Qualities of the profane masculine such as craving power over others and greed are easily visible now in the US. That visibility is very uncomfortable for some of us. But we can only transform what is visible.  The United States will continue to work for nearly another hundred years on opening its collective consciousness to the qualities of the Sacred Masculine.  

 

Masculine qualities expressed in a profane manner wound the feminine. Masculine energies expressed in a sacred manner empower the feminine.  Profane energies cannot be expressed through the heart.  Our hearts always open in the presence of sacredness, regardless of whether that expression is from the Divine Feminine or Sacred Masculine. What are the qualities of the Sacred Masculine that the United States is working on expressing?  That is the question those of us engaged within its shared collective consciousness are working on answering now.

The founding of both the USA and Canada rode in on the Aquarian Age wave. Remember, the energies of the new Aquarian Age have been caressing our planet for many hundreds of years.  The date of December 21 2010 is the closing date for the Piscean Age cycle of more than 11,000 years.  Cosmic energies don’t turn on and off like a light switch!

Canada and the United States are karmic partners, paired up like the male and female in the YinYang symbol (most countries or regions are paired in similar ways).  Because the Sacred Masculine consciousness failed to flower in the US, Canada’s consciousness of Divine Feminine has developed in a wounded manner. There is new power in the expression of the Divine Feminine that Canadian consciousness will step into in the coming decades. The development of new leadership principles based on Divine Feminine values may be one of the first uses of this power.

The Aquarian Age is awakening the Divine Feminine within the consciousness of the entire planet.  The chalice formed by the awakened feminine serves as the safe container in which the Sacred Masculine can come to rest.  It is only when they are at rest that the profane energies of the masculine allow themselves to be transformed into their sacred natures. And as various awakenings occur in the shared collective consciousness of humanity, all those who are able to create the chalice or fill it with Sacred Masculine energies are stepping forward.  

 


This is part of an ongoing series of articles you can find on my website www.healingchants.com concerning politics, the collective consciousness, Barack Obama, 2012 and our shared Spiritual Journey.  My thanks to all of you who pull these essays through me from our Spiritual Masters.

    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 ideal world.  Honoring and giving value to oneself was most likely never an issue they discussed with you.

 

But in order to truly express compassion for another, you must first know love for yourself.  This love must extend to all of yourself, not just the parts you like, but the parts you also judge as being somehow “wrong”.  

 

 The physical body is the 3rd dimensional expression of the soul.  Therefore, how can there be anything wrong with your physical body, if it is merely the expression of your soul into the 3rd dimension?  Would you be so silly as to tell your soul in the 4th dimension “There is something wrong with you!  Your color is not pink enough today.”  Of course not!

 

If you make the assumption that your soul is perfect in the 4th or 5th dimension, why then do you make an assumption that there is anything wrong with your soul in its 3rd dimensional form, as your body?

 

When you cease self-judgment you also cease to express the other, inner pole of vanity. Your soul is perfect as it is in the 3rd dimension expressing through each one of your bodies.

 

When neither the external nor the internal poles of vanity are expressed, there is room for one to have compassion for themselves.  This compassion looks upon the body and sees the manifestation of a soul.

 

Many trying times will be upon your world in the coming years.  This is nothing that you have not heard before.  When your heart stands open to the breeze of Spirit, you will easily feel what is coming, as well as what is leaving. Your hearts open not before judgment, but only in the presence of kindness and compassion.  

 

The human heart has the ability to create a portal through which your personality may pass into other dimensions.  Allow that to be true.  Consider compassion toward yourself first. Let your own heart open.  The hearts of others will open quite naturally after that.

 

-Norma Gentile

(with Mary)

Prejudice -- Charity
Judgment -- Self Forgiveness
Vanity -- Compassion for Self

  1 Introduction
I 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 Invocation
Invoking 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 Prana
When 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 alignment with our vibration.  Its proximity to us creates dissonance with our vibration.  This dissonance can manifest in many ways.  The most common way is as physical sensations like tingles, heaviness, static, foggy mind, incessant looping thoughts or sleepiness.

5 Why we don’t release Energies that aren’t Ours
The process of judgment is one of the primary reasons why we don’t let go of energies that are no longer in tune with our body or soul. Who they have helped us to be or what in our life they have helped us to do “isn’t good enough” according to us.  We still feel inadequate and imperfect.  Many times these energies are actually out-of-time guides and angels.  We may also fear that no other Guide or Angel will come to us to take their place.

When you make a decision and find energies from that decision ricocheting back at you and all sorts of things in your life fall apart, look at what opinions you were basing that decision on.  What beliefs (preconceptions) are the foundation of your decision?  Those are probably ready to shift and change.

6 Meditation: Healing what won’t Heal
Finding Compassion and Forgiveness for ourselves
 
I was scratching my head when my guides said “Prejudice, judgment and vanity are all words in polarity.  They are all the negative pole of something that has a positive pole.”  And as we explore both ends of any polarity, we can find the center pole.  “Using the qualities of these energies from their neutral center can stabilize our lives.”

7 Guides, Angels and Humans share all Dimensions
Our guides and angels offer pulses of energies to us.  These energetic pulses are reinterpreted by us as they pass through our body, heart and brain.  They become ideas, emotions or images, based upon our already existing beliefs.  It is important to note that all Spiritual messages are always reinterpreted by the human receiving them.  Even me! 

As we notice and release prejudices and judgments, our ability to hear, to understand and to experience what our guides and angels are saying to us increases substantially.  The clarity of information we receive is based upon our ability to stand in that center pole of neutrality. 

8 Releasing what your Life no longer needs to Reflect to Your Soul’s  Journey
Just as we are becoming more and more aligned with who we are and how our soul has intended for our physical form to be, so too external forms of our world are releasing, recreating themselves to reflect more and more clearly what they are in the other dimensions.

As we slowly let go of the extremes of polarity, form begins to reflect what is at the center.  What it is without having to display a polarity one way or the other.  No doubt this will mean beyond just humans becoming more centered, that all that we have created will become more centered as well.

9 Releasing Sacred Space and Energies
Know that if there is unfinished work, some aspect of AA Michael will remain to work with you in both normal awakened state as well as dream state.

MANIFESTATION 101 - Working with, not against the Creative Cycle

 

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 most people to understand that exactly now, at the height of the influx of Sacred Masculine energy, is when we most need to create inner stillness so that we might open our hearts and come into a state of deep receptivity.

Many traditions speak of the heart as a place of transmutation. My guides suggest that these Sacred Masculine energies are meant to be received by the Divine Feminine, which in humanity lies as a chalice within the space between the two heart chakras. There they can be allowed to come to maturity. For each of us, this means patience in allowing the Creative Cycle to come to completion.

The Creative Cycle
We are co-creators with Spirit and Nature. And there is a Creative Cycle within which Spirit, Nature and Humanity operate. This cycle can be broken down into various parts. The first part is Possibility. In this part of the cycle the energetic pattern is held within Nature, primarily in the lower dimensions. The second part of the cycle is Opportunity. During this part of the cycle, the energetic pattern held by Nature is met and acted upon by Spirit in all dimensions.

The third part of the cycle is Form. This is the part of the cycle we like the most because the energy now becomes something that takes physical form in our lives. This is what many people call Manifestation. The forth portion of the cycle is Release. We as humans tend to not be very well balanced with this part of the Spiritual cycle of creation. We tend to either hang onto what exists in form or abandon it. Neither quality of release serves to bless the form and truly unwind its energies back into the Creative Cycle.

Today we focus on the third part of the Creative Cycle: Manifestation

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 that is potentially manifesting in our lives.

As humans we LOVE to manifest things. It is only natural to appreciate hard work when it culminates in something external to ourselves, such as a car well repaired or a garden full of vegetables. This is easy to appreciate when we can mentally follow what we did and how we were able to bring into form exactly what we wanted. In these cases we can pat ourselves on the back and say "good job!". We wanted something, we worked for that something, and that exact something came into form in our lives.

But that isn't really how the Creative Cycle works.

Most often you have the experience of thinking you wanted something and you put into motion steps to get what you wanted. But it was your mind that decided what you wanted, and your mind that decided how to get it. Perhaps you heard your guide or angel telling you to do something. But again it was your mind interpreting the energies of your guide or angel. What your angel said to your heart and what your mind interpreted that to mean were most likely not the same! Our mind frequently misunderstands or misinterprets what our spiritual helpers are sharing with us.

Here in the western New Age culture our minds have a hard time understanding that Spirit and Nature are both part of the Creative Cycle. We have an even harder time accepting that they both inform the larger cycles of creation within form. We are not singular masters of our world. We are co-creative stewards of Life. The quiet motion of Spirit upon the waters of Nature is what allows the manifestation of anything to eventually occur. And in the moment of any one-thing manifesting, there are many more cycles that have not yet come into visible form. These cycles underlay new manifestations which will occur at a later point in time.

Seeds, Saplings, and Mature Oak Trees
In any given moment there are many cycles that are slowly taking form as seeds. These are Possibilities, in the first stage of the Creative Cycle. Those seeds eventually put down roots and begin to push those first shoots of new growth upward. They are now becoming Opportunities within our Creative Cycle. Oftentimes while we are admiring completed manifestations that have come into form in our lives, such as a fully-grown tree, we accidentally walk upon the seedlings of other opportunities that are trying to grow beneath it. While one cycle manifested itself as a mature tree, many more Creative Cycles remain as seeds and saplings in the stages of Possibility and Opportunity.

Please humor me, while I follow this metaphor a bit more.

I know from living in an area of the US Midwest where most of the Ash and Elm trees have now died, that people do not allow tree seedlings to grow in their yards. Despite years of warnings of impending Ash and Elm disease, few people thought ahead to allow new seedlings of other types of trees to grow beneath their established trees. Most people looked at their thirty year old mature trees and kept pulling out the Maple saplings native to this area that naturally sprang up in their yards. As a result, there are now long stretches of streets and neighborhoods with no shade trees. And those who have planted new trees must water and tend to them frequently, because the natural shady environment in which young trees love to grow no longer exists.

Nature offered a solution to the Ash and Elm trees dying by supplying saplings of other native trees in abundance. These saplings arose as part of the Creative Cycle. Humans just didn't pay attention to what was being offered so easily to them as a solution.

Watching this happen in my own yard has helped me to recognize where in my life the Creative Cycle has offered a possible solution to a problem and my mind turned down the offer. Not because I had any better offer! But because I wanted the problem to be resolved my way.

In these cases, where my mind had decided what to do, I found myself creating something externally that I would then have to constantly tend. At some point I realized that I was putting more energy into the project than what would ever come out of it to support me. And within my physical body I felt less and less stable. Even thinking about the situation would drain my energy!

Over the years I have gotten better at sensing when I am forcing something to come into form according to my mind, rather than according to the natural Creative Cycle. And the difference is obvious. When I think about projects coming to me as a natural maturation of energies, I am energized. And I find the steps to helping these project come into form may be challenging, but my spiritual support staff is always present and working with me.

In workshops and private sessions I am fond of asking if something truly fits the person and their soul now. I have found that as we move and grow within Spirit, each of us looks around and sees what used to fit for us, but does not fit anymore. Oftentimes that sensation of something no longer fitting us occurs at the moment we realize we are having to put too much energy into maintaining it. And so we cease to give it energy. And we release it from our lives.

Getting what you think you want does not usually serve the Creative Cycle
I was at a friend's house a few months back when her daughter called. Having been looking for a used car for sometime, her daughter was very happy to report that she had found a wonderful car she could afford to purchase. I don't recall the exact make or model of car, but I recall overhearing her mother's reaction!

The daughter had found a used European luxury car she could afford to buy. What mom knew was that the inevitable repairs to this type of car would be two or three times more in cost than similar repairs to a less luxurious but more commonly available used car. Her mom gently pointed out that with her daughter's current income it might be difficult to afford to repair the car. Of course her daughter, like most of us, was infatuated by the car, as it represented the luxury she wanted to attain in life. But rather than move in the natural spiral of the Creative Cycle she wanted to move in a straight line to obtain it directly and immediately.

One reason we step outside of the spiral motion of the Creative Cycle is because we want something and believe we can create a straight path to getting it. A symptom of taking this short cut is that we over-commit our energies to make this one thing manifest. We find that we don't have enough energy for other aspects of our life to remain in balance. It takes much more energy to get and keep something in our lives when we haven't put into the Creative Cycle all of the underground development needed for its natural manifestation.

For example, I could have gone to a local greenhouse and purchased young trees for my yard, rather then tend the saplings already growing under the dying trees. But because my new saplings would not have grow in this soil and learned to bend with the wind and drink sparingly during the dry season, I would be spending much of my time and money to water them and stake them up and cover them from the harsh winter. Instead, I chose to put my energy into the earlier portions of the Creative Cycle and (hopefully) I will not have to continue to put energy into the native saplings I have tended once they are established and have a bit more time to grow.

As for the European luxury car that her daughter so desired; mom counseled her out of purchasing it at this time, and into looking at what was easy to afford now.

In that same fashion, sometimes we see a possibility and we want it to be an Oak tree. But it isn't. The sapling might become a beautiful Maple tree. But it won't become an Oak tree. That doesn't mean there isn't a towering Oak tree coming our way as a sapling next season. It just means that at this moment, the Creative Cycle is offering us a Maple tree sapling to plant and tend. This Maple tree may then provide the shady environment in which the Oak tree sapling may be planted when it arrives.

Allowing Spirit to Support your Creative Cycles Now
What if another aspect of the Creative Cycle were one of stepping back and allowing others, within Spirit, to support you? When our minds are not the "deciders" about what to manifest in our lives, the Creative Cycle has permission to function more fully.

How willing are you to let all of your spiritual support system be the factors that nourish the Creative Cycles you are working on right now? How willing are you to release whatever it is you are trying to make happen, or that you want to have happen?

Think for a moment about a project that is prominent in your life. Have you asked the consciousness of Spirit within that project how it wants to evolve? Most of us don't think of projects as having a consciousness within them. But they do. In order for anything to come into form it must already exist in the other dimensions. And what exists in the other dimensions? Consciousness.

Too often as humans we assume that if something isn't working out the way we want it to be, we are at fault. And that if we can just push or pull at it mentally, or repeat more affirmations or be better spiritual beings that the project will come into form in the manner we want it to be.

But we cannot, by our human will or mind, push or pull or affirm anything into manifestation. Within each person, each form, and each object there is consciousness. There is consciousness also within the Creative Cycle. Each song, play or poem contains a consciousness within it. Each garden has a consciousness. Each home has a consciousness. Each tree and plant also have a consciousness. Even ideas contain a consciousness beyond that of our own mind.

Spirit exists as consciousness within all form and within all stages of the Creative Cycle. The less pushing and pulling we do the easier it is for Spirit to birth into form exactly what Spirit wants to birth into form on our behalf.

Prioritizing What We Nourish in Our Lives
One of the topics related to manifestation is how we choose to use our time and our attention. We each have free will in where and into what we put our energies, particularly our doing energies, into doing. I've noticed that we have a habit of prioritizing what it is that we do, not always according to Spirit, but according to external factors. One of those external factors is that we tend to do things that make other people happy. Sometimes that is as simple as getting up a little early to make coffee or breakfast for our partner.

Most often I've noticed we tend to reprioritize what we do so that we do things that other people will see us do before we will do things that no one will see us do.

For example, I suspect that people will mow their lawns or wash their cars before they would go to do yoga for themselves, or take quiet time for themselves. Perhaps we will find more time to do makeup and hair in the morning than to do a bit of meditation or reflection of some sort for ourselves.

I'm sure there are many other ways that this happens. It is simply something that I began to notice in my own choices. How much easier it is to do something when the action that I am doing is going to be seen, and supposedly approved of by others, versus doing something simply for myself that no one would ever know about, that no one would ever see.

Clearly the results of doing something for one's self move immediately into nourishing all those things that are not yet in form for us within our Creative Cycle. Those things we are holding in meditation very gingerly within our hearts receive the quality of energy they need to grow when we care for ourselves. When we choose to do something that nourishes ourselves, we energize those Possibilities and Opportunities within the quiet underground rhythms of our life's Creative Cycle. We nourish them as they begin to grow, sprout roots and send up those first little green shoots into our lives.

And the trick is, when we first begin to see a little green shoot of a project we have been meditating and working on appear, do we continue to nourish ourselves very quietly, and therefore nourish the project, or do we run out and proclaim, "There it is! I see this first tiny green sprout, and so I don't have to water it anymore, it is done!"

Those of us who have gardens know that at this point you must continue to tend, water and protect the small green shoots as they are first stretching up to the sun. Sometimes you have to tend to maturing plants and trees as well. Caring for ourselves is also caring for what is in our lives. There is an ongoing co-creative process here between humanity and All-That-Is. Simply stated, that which nourishes humanity manifests because humanity nourishes it.

Another way of saying this is "When I water my garden, I eat well from it." When I don't water or tend my garden, my broccoli doesn't do nearly as well, and so I don't eat nearly as well. When I honor that lovely infinite cycle of care and co-creation, I allow Spirit to move through and create form on my behalf. I also honor my ability to choose to water and tend what Spirit offers me in my garden.

Tending our gardens, whether the garden is an external, physical form, or the inner landscape of our emotions or spiritual life gives us great and even grand pleasure. Sometimes we do this by sitting in reflective meditation. Sometimes by reading or having quiet time. Perhaps it is creating art, making music, being with someone or playing with your children.

Especially during this time of increased Sacred Masculine energies, start somewhere in your daily life to allow Spirit to express through you. Find the time and space to engage in whatever activity that allows your heart to open when you do it. Give time to whatever you already do that nourishes you and lets your heart open so that you feel Spirit flow through you. Start there. Let that be your service today to nourish yourself.

-Norma (with Mary and Archangel Michael)

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.

HEALING with GRATITUDE those ANCIENT ENERGIES now DEPARTING

 

Healing with Gratitude
Those 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 more audible to us.  Problem solving becomes a group process, not an individual undertaking.

We see the larger picture provided by Spirit only when we cease focusing solely on the problem.

 


Using Unconditional Love in Healing 
from Norma

My own sense, and perhaps this is because I have always been sensitive to subtle energies, is that the easiest way to get me to not do something is for someone to send me a lot of intention that I should do that exact something.  And if that energetic intention arrives with energetic instructions of how I ought to be doing this something, I am even less likely to consider it as an option in my life.  And I suspect that I am not the only one who prefers to make their own decisions!

When I am on the receiving end of well-intentioned prayers or “love and light” I notice a constant motion of energies in my aura. It is like little bits of waves pushing in and out of the space around me. I find it distracting, sometimes to the point of feeling a bit unbalanced or dizzy. Other times it feels like a heaviness or weight within some part of my physical body. As soon as I ask it “Are you in tune with me?” it departs, and my body feels lighter. It is not that people don’t have good intentions when they send me such energies. But their intentions are not in tune with my own physical body and/or my soul’s journey at this moment. 

From my own experience I have found that sending “love and light” usually creates more chaos, not less, in the situation to which it is being sent.  In looking at why this is, I realized a very simple fact. Our concept, as humans, of “love and light” or even of “unconditional love” is always limited by our experience. We may have glorious, ecstatic experiences today of unconditional love.  And by tomorrow we may have the ability to experience a whole new level of ecstatic and glorious unconditional love!

How silly we are, to assume that what we experience today as unconditional love won’t deepen and change by tomorrow.  Or to assume that what we are able to experience as unconditional love now is the same frequency or quality that someone else needs to experience now. 

After you have had an exceptionally good meal, do you assume that you won’t have another good meal for the rest of your life?  Of course not. We are always looking forward to another great meal, just as we are always looking for a deeper experience of unconditional love.  And with each spiritual experience we grow, and are more apt to catch ourselves in the ways that we place limitations upon unconditional love.  If we have a wonderful meal of some particular cuisine, we would never assume that we will only have a similarly delicious meal again of that same cuisine.

In this same fashion we assume that an experience of “love and light” or unconditional love must have certain parameters such as a sacred place, incense, chant, a certain teacher, etc.  Or that the energy of unconditional love must appear to us all psychically to have a certain color or quality.  We forget that it is we who are opening into the already existing pool of unconditional love.  The tools that get us to this point are varied.  The experience of unconditional love is varied because we ourselves are in various states of consciousness. 

I do most of my individual healing sessions over the phone.  Part of what I believe makes the process work well long-distance is that I invoke the energies of Nature and Archangel Michael before beginning the session. When I ask the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences to step forward and create sacred space, I ask those that vibrate at what they themselves consider to be their level of unconditional love to form a sphere around the room the client is in. 

 

I do this for two reasons:

1.Rooms are used for many purposes. And the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences exist to reflect all of the uses of a room.  Some of them vibrate at the level that supports us when we are watching TV, fixing a meal, reading, sleeping, studying or having a conversation with friends.  They give us all these levels of support. 

2. In meditation and healing rooms the Nature Spirits and Nature have been told by humans what unconditional love should feel and look like. And they have therefore copied our limited beliefs. 

 

For these reasons I call those Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of a room that vibrate at what they themselves define as their level of unconditional love to support a healing process.  In this way I am asking them to go beyond my limited experience of unconditional love and define it for themselves. I am not limiting their expression of unconditional love by what I believe it should be.  I mean to empower them, much like a good parent, mentor or teacher empowers a student to use their own judgment and see within a situation how they can bring their very best to that situation.

In this same way, meditations and prayers by humans can invoke the consciousnesses at play within the Gulf of Mexico, or any location, and invite them to step forward.  We can empower them each to act at their level of unconditional love and bring what each is able to see and know forward to humanity.  Our prayers can help to build telepathic bridges between the consciousnesses of oil, water, animals, machines, and all those humans involved in any situation that is unfolding.

The larger picture is being revealed to us.  We are moving into knowing that as we engage into the world, our quality of engagement moves out to the other  consciousnesses in the world, and that same quality is reflected by them back to us..

 

Portals of Consciousness
(from the combined energies of Nature, Gaia and others)

As we move into, through and beyond the year 2012, we will be challenged with various world-wide issues. Each issue helps us (humanity) to adjust our course, so that we can pass successfully into a new level of consciousness. Each of these new levels of consciousness seems to be proceeded by a smaller and smaller portal through which we must pass. In order to fit through each portal, we must let go of another set of physical things, as well as beliefs and habits.  We cannot carry them through the new portal into the next level of spiritual awareness.  And at some point we recognize that they no longer serve us.

In the First Cycle of Creation upon the Earth, the beings who stood as humans do now were unable to pass through the many portals into new levels of consciousness.  At the conclusion of their cycle there was a massive implosion which tore apart the Earth herself. Many of the beings involved in that First Creative Cycle left the planet and stepped out of this reality.  They found that creating within a Free Will Zone, outside of the connection with God, was far more difficult than they had ever imagined.  

The Free Will Zone was an accumulation of a very strong urge on the part of Spirit to create something new.  To create a zone, apart from Spirit (where everything was ordered) to see what could happen if the individual aspects of God could create on their own.  And to explore what was possible when creation could happen in conflict as well as in harmony. 

The resultant of the First Creative Cycle was an implosion and disaster.  From that came a series of consciousnesses who were not able to leave the Earth or move into the Second Cycle of Creation.  These consciousnesses slept.  They became, within our Third Cycle of Creation, many of the elements that we find deep within the Earth.  (for a more see June 2010 Newsletter)

 Hence, oil, and the consciousness within oil, belongs to the First Creative Cycle. It is rather ironic that in the Third Creative Cycle we have tapped into the physical form that a consciousness from the First Creative Cycle created.  It is our use of the form of this ancient consciousness that is now causing us in the Third Creative Cycle deep distress.   The inability of those consciousnesses of the First Cycle of Creation to complete their journey has now come to our awareness, here in the Third Cycle of Creation. 

It is not our task to heal or fix or somehow make oil and the consciousness within it fit into our Third Cycle of Creation. Rather, we can allow the consciousness that is within the physical form of oil to exit the planet.  This consciousness, from the First Creative Cycle, can then continue on its own journey, apart from our journey in the Third Creative Cycle.  This is apt to change the molecular structure of oil, and another consciousness will then step into physical oil.  This new consciousness will be a part of the Third Creative Cycle and will reflect our consciousnesses within this cycle.

When this happens humanity will recognize this new consciousness as being in relationship to humans.  Ideally we move away from treating oil as being an impersonal ‘it’ to a more balanced relationship of responsibility and respect towards what is a parallel consciousness, evolving along with our own consciousness.

 

Ancient Energies Departing
(from Norma, in a blended channeling with Thoth, Nature and Gaia)

Many years ago I began to see energies related to the fall of Atlantis moving out of the kundalini channels within our human bodies.  Then, about two years ago, the energies seemed to be gone.  But in the past few months a very similar energy has been releasing from within the human body.  My sense is that as with the earlier energy, it is actually a group of conscious beings that were trapped within our reality in the Third Creative Cycle, but who do not belong here.

As the planet and humanity have already stepped through many portals and risen in consciousness, it is now possible and necessary for those beings from the First and Second Creative Cycle to leave our reality.  These are consciousnesses that are not related to our Third Creative Cycle.  As they are leaving, oftentimes they appear dark or black to us when we see them at a psychic level.  This simply reminds us that they are not harmonious to our human bodies. 

Our role is to empower them to find their way onto their next step.  We do this not by trying to change them or make them move in a certain way or to a particular place.  We only need to ask them if they indeed belong to this time period, or to this place.   In asking them a question, we empower them to move onto wherever it is that they need to go to now.  And this movement is far beyond what our limited human mind can comprehend.  Only these consciousnesses know where they need to go, and how to get themselves there. 

 

The Consciousness of Water

I love to swim, particularly in open natural lakes.  I believe that each lake has a unique consciousness or Deva. But living in Michigan, there are many winter months where the lakes are frozen over. So I also swim in various indoor lap pools. When I am in these pools, I have learned to feel beyond the chemicals and find the consciousness within the water.  The first time I did this the consciousness within water reminded me that it was present both in the swimming pool and in the lake.  It was merely my own perception that made the experience of swimming in the lake more spiritual than swimming in a pool.  The consciousness of water was present and glad to communicate with me in either location.

In this same fashion the consciousness of water exists not just within what is external to us, such as the lakes and swimming pools.  The consciousness of water exists within our own bodies, the leaves of plants and trees, the bodies of animals and even within the clouds and the very air we breath. The consciousness of water exudes itself into the atmosphere that surrounds the planet.  This water consciousness pervades all of our physicality.  

I wonder what the consciousness within Water wants to do now?  What is the next step of its growth?  Is there a way that this consciousness can help to escort other consciousnesses out of our planet? 

What if the First Cycle of Creation were not based as much upon water as our Third Cycle of Creation is?  What if the First Cycle of Creation used elements that might seem foreign to us in this cycle?  Perhaps using consciousnesses within elements that we would see as being “it”, such as magma, oil or rocks.  What if, within the context of the First Creation Cycle, these consciousnesses were as we are today, vibrant and interactive?  

We as humans in the Third Creative Cycle can empower these consciousnesses onto their next step outside of our reality.  And in so doing, we can invite their wisdom to be available to us to solve the current dilemma of fossil fuel use as well as the Gulf Oil situation.  We do this when we allow ourselves to feel the consciousness of oil, vibrating at its own level of unconditional love. 

All consciousness can be honored.  Within each being, seemingly animate or inanimate, there is a vibrant and active consciousness.  Humanity can and will learn to listen to and commune with the consciousnesses with whom we share the planet.  As we listen to each consciousness, we ourselves become more able to know what to do and when to do it.

 

Healing between the Macrocosm and Microcosms

We each are connected to the outer world through the issues in our physical body and in our lives.  There is a macrocosm external to us that has both balances and imbalances which are reflected within the physical, emotional and mental microcosm which we define as yourself.  As each of us continues to change, we give that gift of change to the macrocosm of our external world.

As the consciousness within oil departs from the planet, whatever is within us related to that consciousness will also depart.  And as the new consciousness enters into oil (and other elements) some new aspect of ourselves will enter into the microcosm of ourselves.

How we relate to the physical form of oil (and other elements) changes as well.  As we become aware of the internal microcosmic changes in our lives, we are more apt to build a connection with the related external macrocosm elements which reflect a co-creative stance.  This moves our relationship with oil from one of using it to one of honoring it.  This is not to say we won’t still be utilizing oil as a fuel source, but there may be a way of working with the new consciousness within oil by 2015 that we cannot conceive of now.

The consciousness now present within oil comes from the First Creative Cycle.  This makes its vibration one that is not at all coherent to our psychic abilities. Because the new consciousness that steps into oil is a legitimate partner of our Third Creative Cycle, it will be much easier for humans to hear and understand the psychic promptings of this new consciousness as a peer who is offering co-creative ideas to us.

Emotions and Consciousness Meet   

from Thoth 
It is at this point in the cycle of Creation of Humanity that your pinion (the portion of a bird’s feathers that directs it, much like the rudder of a ship), your directional guidance is most crucial.  Just as the tiny movement of a feather can bring a bird into a strong motion in either direction, right or left, so too your own emotional upset or upheaval can cause ripples unintentionally to move out into your world.

This is never to be understood as saying not to have an emotion,  for the expression of emotion is truly what makes humanity human!  But rather to become aware that your reactions to things are often merely a reaction to the perception of the thing, rather than to the thing itself. 

Even people and situations are clarifying themselves of past patterns in such a fashion that who you think someone is from a behavior of yesterday may not be who they truly are by tomorrow.  As you allow yourself to see with new eyes each person around you, and each situation each day anew, what is different?  As you allow yourself to feel that difference each day you validate to the other person or into the situation “Good work!  You shifted, you have changed, you learned something and I see that you are different.” 

Likewise you can receive from others that same validation.  Notice when someone else does not bring what happened yesterday or the day before forward to you yet again, but meets you with fresh expectations and new eyes, for that will draw out of you a new behavior.  As you meet each other again anew, it allows all those other elements in the cycle of Creation much more freedom of motion, in all that they do. 

As the land and the Nature Spirits are able to have more freedom, they are able to better assist the consciousness of these energies from the First Creative Cycle to move from the Earth up into Heaven.  As this process speeds up it facilitates the ease of transition of your world into its next step and its next form.

Do not hold onto these energies for they are fleeting.  There are merely that which is not pertaining to you.  They are merely that which was.  Whether it is a “yesterday” as we might call it, or a “million years ago”, as one of you might call it, these are merely energies that were, not energies that are.  This is indeed a moment not to hang onto the past or try to grip onto what is leaving.  It is a moment to see with new eyes what is before you.  See the potential in the environmental situation in your planet.  Do not see the issue, see the potential.  In this way your attention draws other’s attention not to how it happened or why it happened on a physical level, but to the interconnectedness of all involved.  In your current situation is the potential that humanity might see all consciousnesses as an interrelating web of life.  Now is the time that humanity might see all beings, all form, as having equal value in this creative cycle. 

When a human beholds a rock and sees the spirit within the rock, and communes with that rock, the human then enlivens within themselves that same quality of consciousness that the rock holds.  And likewise the rock benefits, feeling within itself that consciousness of humanity.  In this manner environmental issues are resolved, as the human and the supposedly inanimate meet together.

I trust that some portion of the ideas shared in this essay will be of service to you. My blessings to each of you.

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, including the upper dimensions where they dwell.  For these reasons I tend to use “we” instead of “you humans” when channeling.  It simply reflects my own presence within the channeling process, and an acknowledgement of the connectedness of all consciousness. Please keep both of these factors in mind as you read.

Below is a summary of the insights Shesat and Thoth shared with me during the group meditation, along with some updated information.  If you like, the original audio of the meditation is freely available (iTunes, under podcasts and then my name) or at my website under Meditation CDs. www.healingchants.com/recordings_med.html

The meditation moved quickly to address the larger picture of humanity’s interconnectedness with the environmental and spiritual consciousness present in the Gulf region. I have done my best to frame the energies that I sensed from Shesat and Thoth during the meditation into words on the page. I invite you to let the energetic undercurrents work with you as you read these words.  As they do so, you may begin to “hear” your own connection to Spirit, and receive additional insights from your own spiritual connections as well.

Creating in Sacredness

Sometimes we stop ourselves from feeling a true heart connection with what we consider to be a nonliving form. And yet it is through our hearts that Spirit touches a scientist or artist and suggests a song or a poem or a book or an invention or a solution to a problem. And as Spirit touches a person, the form that is manifested out of that magnified connection to Spirit also exists in consciousness within the 1st and 2nd dimensions, as well as the upper dimensions. Anything that exists in 3D must already exist in all the other dimensions. 

When we hold space in a sacred manner, it is our intention to allow the generation of energies and ideas, not just in the 3rd dimension, but in all the dimensions, to occur. This is not about creating a desired outcome.  This is a sacred holding of space to allow Spirit to work within the web of life. 

Feel whatever aspect you are connected to right now related to the Gulf oil leak, whether it is the animals, or the water consciousness, or even the machinery at work or the oil itself. 

And try asking questions.  Here are some to start with;

- What is the next step?

- How does the aspect of consciousness that you feel connected to, want to express itself next? 

- How does the creative process that binds All Life together and weaves all of consciousness together want to express itself now in the Gulf of Mexico?

 

For myself, I was drawn to connect with the consciousness of oil.  I asked, “How is it that the oil itself wants to feel now?” And I felt a sense of surprise to be so free, to move so quickly. But the consciousness of oil did not want to be within the water, although it enjoyed a giddy sense of freedom as it bubbled up from its home deep within the Earth.  So I asked “Is this where the consciousness of oil truly wants to reside?”

Shesat continued by focusing my attention on the quality of consciousness present within the oil. I felt how each pool of oil has a slightly different quality of consciousness. And I formulated more questions aloud, as part of the group meditation.

 

Are those large pools of oil beneath the surface where they need to be right now? What would that consciousness like to do next? Where is its next step in evolution?  I offer that consciousness related to each pool of oil permission to change and grow and do whatever it needs to do right now. That may include being returned to its home or utilized in a new fashion that I can’t imagine yet. 

How does the dolphin consciousness feel now, and what is their next step? There is a quality of consciousness that the dolphins have held on behalf of humanity, because humanity was not vibrating at a level sufficient to contain this quality of consciousness for itself. It is time now for that aspect of consciousness which is held for humanity by the dolphins be slowly released back into human consciousness.  This aspect of consciousness effects the Ascended Masters as well, as they based their ascension on coming through the human form. 

Because humanity’s attention is so focused on the water, the oil, the dolphins and other wildlife in the Gulf it opens the doorway of communication between humanity and all these other beings. 

And as we open that door, it may not be that each person hears a dolphin singing to them, but it may be that each person senses a growing awareness of our interrelation and interconnection to all animal and plants as well as to all the elements within earth; the water and the rock, the oil and the air, and those things that inventors, scientists and artistic people can create. All of these are equally intertwined into this wonderful web of life.

This is the moment when the shared consciousness of humanity awakens to the interrelatedness of All Life.  Seeing our interrelatedness outside of ourselves, our shared field of human consciousness is primed to sense the telepathic inner connections next.


Consciousness within the Web of Life

The web of life thankfully is much, much larger than the oil spill itself.  The web of life has the ability to interact with all those elements now at play with the Gulf Oil Spill. The web of life has the ability to find new ways outside the gaze of human eyes. The web of life has its own creative process. New options and new opportunities arise from each crisis. And it is only the human eyes that always see a crisis.

How do the consciousness of the marsh, the consciousness of the water and the consciousness of the oil want to engage together? Rather than force a separation, let them talk to each other. Humanity often assumes that if something looks different than something else that there is no relationship, or that there shouldn’t be any relationship. But there is always a relationship in consciousness between anything in form. Humans just have to give themselves permission to overhear the ongoing dialogues.

In order for anything to exist or be created into the 3rd dimension, it must already exist in the other dimensions. Scientists, inventors, poets and artists simply feel the other dimensions and then bring into form what already exists.  So one form of healing is to allow what man has created (machines or metal alloys, for example) to feel an innate connection to what it is that Gaia has created.  In this case machines made by man can commune with water and oil-eating bacteria and seabed, along with the oil living deep beneath all of them. And how do they all want to relate to each other, to turn to each other, to dance with each other now?

 

The Doorway opens between Consciousness’

As the doorway has opened between the consciousness of humanity and the consciousness of oil, it also allows for a deep and dramatic change in how humanity and oil relate to each other. As long as humanity has the opinion that we have domination over the consciousness of oil, we simply use it up. But the moment the consciousness of humanity sees that there is indeed a partnership with oil, we will respect it. This spill is allowing humanity to open the door to understand, first at a subconscious level in dream state, that there is a partnership here with oil, water, dolphins, crustaceans, and all those layers of consciousness that are being affected now by the oil spill.

As we bring our attention to anything, we open the doorway between our own and the consciousness of the other.  We no longer choose to abuse it nearly as easily. When we see that there is a consciousness and a power within Nature to rebuild, to reorganize, and to creatively solve problems, humanity will become more aware of the partnership with Nature.

 

The Consciousness of Water and Oil

Our relationship to water is changing. As humanity has opened the door to truly consider the importance of water, whether it’s fresh drinking water or the seawater within the Gulf, the consciousness of water now becomes more available to interact with our own human consciousness. It is far beyond the scope of telling it what to do, and having it take various shapes as the water crystals respond to your intentions!  Water has a consciousness within it that can be called forth only by the intention of unconditional love.  Touching only an infinitesimal point of the quality of unconditional love held within the consciousness of water creates miracles beyond what humanity can, at this moment, imagine.   Call, from your heart, to this infinitely loving aspect of water, and see what happens. 

Likewise there is a quality of unconditional love within oil that has never been revealed.  We would say that the natural state of all things is one of unconditional love.  It is only because those things within form in the 3rd dimension must reflect the various layers of consciousness within which humanity functions that things appear to not function at unconditional love. 

Can you call from your heart to the unconditional love within the consciousness of oil?  Ask it how it would like to feel now, or where it would like to find itself now. As you ask, rather than tell it how to feel, you open the doorway to be in communion with it.  In this state you can hear its response.  When you tell something how to be, you cannot hear its response. And you assume the position of assuming that you know better than its own consciousness what it needs.
 
  

Connecting Consciousness 

Know that humanity’s next step is a combination of the shared consciousnesses of Nature and humanity.  As humans, our evolution in consciousness has been bound to Gaia, the soul who is our earth, and much is being made right in this moment of the changes that we’re undergoing. This particular instance is beyond a wake-up call. It is actually the end, in many ways, of our perception of living outside of Nature or outside of a connection to Gaia. This is that ending point, that final straw that allows the consciousness of humanity to know and understand the consciousness of all that surrounds us.

And it is, for light workers, a time to know that the consciousness within water that we have heard so much about for so many years does not exist merely to mimic whatever it is we would like it to do, but rather that there is an innate consciousness within water herself. And that innate consciousness can be drawn out and empowered by simply asking, “What do you want?” How does the consciousness of water want to be? In this way there is no right or wrong, there is no need for humanity to try to manipulate or create a structure within water. Simply by asking, water will respond. You can ask the consciousness within water, what would you like now? How do you want to be now? 

And simply by asking the question, humanity empowers the consciousness of water to step forward and take charge, and to do what it knows how to do. And water does that in part by then replying to the consciousness of humans.  Water’s own consciousness can tell scientists at a telepathic level to try a certain combination of ingredients or to look anew at a discounted idea.  Again, opening the door to the consciousness of water opens the door in both directions for water to then speak to all of humanity. 

This is a level of consciousness we are stepping into together. Only with a sense of communion can we solve a problem such as the Gulf oil leak.  And it is the situation of the leak that has opened the doorway.  In this manner the consciousness of humanity is opened to All Life.

 

 

Final note from Norma:

I noticed that the location of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig appears to be situated on one of the lines of awakening planetary consciousness. I believe that the heightened energies from the Consciousness Grid may have contributed to a situation which was not in balance going even farther out of balance.  It stands to reason then that these lines within the Consciousness Grid may continue to magnify what is in balance and what is not in balance as we move into and through our ascension process.

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. 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.

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,

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 us into the new level of consciousness. But right now, we are in a process of closure, and it feels like death.

It is one thing to mentally know that death is always followed by rebirth. But that doesn't make passing through this portion of the cycle any easier. That which cannot move forward with us into the next cycle and into the new aspect of consciousness that we are stepping into must die. Our dependence on certain energies within the Earth is over, while our ability to nourish from new energies within the lower dimensions opens. There are parts of ourselves which are attached to behaviors and beliefs that must be left behind.

The physical Earth is moving in the larger cycle of change with us. Since March 2010 the physical Earth has been vibrating closer to an emotional level than a physical level. Our bodies have felt this. But our minds have had a difficult time understanding that what appears to be solid rock and dirt beneath our feet is actually the Earth vibrating at a frequency that is higher than that of our physical bodies.

And as this happens, we need to explore new ways to define what grounding is. We need to distinguish between the old way of grounding into the Earth versus the new way of grounding into the lower dimensional aspects of our own soul.

 

Gaia is freeing herself to change. Her body, our Earth, will reflect her changes. There is a much larger cycle here. This change will be one of moving beyond physical form. It will not happen in this century or any time span we can conceive of. But it will occur, and with each shift Gaia makes we too are free to move along new paths. This may be seen as new small choices in daily life, or within a larger cycle of humanity growing into a deeper awareness of Spirit.


As a result of the recent series of earthquakes I was prompted to look at the energies of the physical Earth, Gaia, and the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences.  What I saw is that many of the recent earthquakes are the result of

Gaia needing to reset the pulsation of her own heartbeat.

In order to avoid having to do another, even stronger adjustment to her body, Gaia needed a time of deep quiet in the space above the Earth. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano slowed air traffic across the world.  Attention was paid to the resulting stillness, as all those things that airplanes cause simply ceased to exist for a time over much of Europe, an otherwise very active region of the world. Gaia created the stillness that she needed. And I believe that the ongoing seismic activity in Iceland is occurring in place of a devastating earthquake in Europe.

 

Our bodies feel how much Gaia's body needs to complete her change. She may need to reset her heartbeat another time or two in the coming months. As her body, our Earth, changes, our consciousness and our bodies change also.

 

The Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of the Earth hold the overflowing emotions of humans. They do so gladly - it is part of their job description. As similar energies are being released by Gaia, the long held and dormant emotional energies held by Nature are being psychically revealed. More about this, and meditations to adjust grounding, sleeping, eating, and other issues this process is causing to occur in the human body will be addressed in the phone meditation.

 

Just as Gaia, the soul that we know at the center of the Earth laid her consciousness within the Pure Energy of Nature to create the physical form of Earth, so too each one of us laid our consciousness within the Pure Energy of Nature so that we could exist with her, within her body the Earth, and then differentiate out until we reached human form.  For this reason our journeys are intertwined.

 

As Gaia is changing she needs to access new levels of energy with her physical body, which is also our Earth.  Emotional energies created by humans which have long been held by the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences are being re-arranged.  They are not being released, but they are being re-ordered, so that much older patterns of energies might move from the core of the physical Earth into the Consciousness Grids that surround the Earth.

 

As these ancient energies move, it is like a reverse snowfall.  Because these ancient energies do not serve to support our human body, they appear dark, black or even fearful to us.  This is merely our own intuition letting us know to leave these energies alone.  They are not ours to heal or attempt to address. 

 

But this can be difficult to do. Our psychic antennae feel the flow of energies from deep beneath our feet, rising up through the Earth, and moving out into the space surrounding the Earth.  The trick is to realize that what is moving is already taken care of.  We need not do anything but stay out of the way!

 

Our bodies do feel the shift that the Earth is making, and we also feel these energies moving.  And yet we are merely witnessing this process.  We are not in charge of it.

As we allow these ancient energies to move into the Consciousness Grids around the planet, they can continue their own process of evolution and change. This allows the greater process of Creation to take place.  

 

For myself, I find that meditating on the support provided by the lower dimensions brings a sense of ease and steadiness, especially during times of Earth Changes. In meditation, I feel that aspect of my soul that exists within the 2nd dimension.  Then I ask how my body wants to receive support from my soul within the 2nd dimension.

 

This is much easier to talk someone through than to write about!  So I offer you a free audio meditation, in English, for those who wish to explore the ideas shared in this essay further.

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

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 Breatharian.  Very few have it as a goal in the journey of their soul for this lifetime to live as a complete Breatharian.  Let me put it this way:  just because you enjoy painting doesn’t mean you are meant to be a professional artist in this lifetime.  And just because you may not become a professional painter doesn’t mean you should stop painting altogether, either. 

 

The same is true with our natural Breatharian wiring.  We have some aspect of it already turned on.  Typically 5 to 10 percent of our lower 8th chakra is tuned to the Pure Energy of Nature.  As I see it, Breatharians have nearly 90 percent of this same chakra tuned to the Pure Energy of Nature.  As Elitom and I demonstrate on the CD, and as I teach in my Practitioner Trainings, anyone can tune their lower 8th chakra more fully to the Pure Energy of Nature in order to create water directly in their body.  Learning this technique does not mean you are going to become a complete Breatharian.  It means that you are consciously utilizing your Breatharian wiring.  And as you practice using the wiring in this first, simple manner, changes will happen in your life. 

A comment from Elitom: In this classroom of life, as you continue to learn, develop and grow, it is not about eating or not eating. Following spirit into becoming a Breatharian is not a forced event. It is an allowing. And depending on the job assignment you are fulfilling, it may or may not be the energy that is needed to complete your particular assignment.

 

A Breatharian energy is not helpful for many situations. And this knowledge is not for everybody.  People who contact me are meditators, holistic people, high level diet changers….not someone who is in the rib cookoff!

 

The wiring of the Breatharian experience around people is not easy at all. Friends and family don’t like having their beliefs challenged. This is why I’m going to work hard now so Breatharians in the future don’t have to go through the same difficulties I went through during my transition.  In the next ten years it will be common knowledge in this culture (the USA).  I am among the first fruits. 

 

I was at a mall in North Carolina, and struck up a conversation with a man from India.  He asked if I wanted to go get something to eat, and I replied that I was on a special diet.  He asked what my diet was, and I explained that I am a Breatharian. He was not surprised when I said this.  Breatharianism is common knowledge in his culture, as well as in China.  And one day it will be accepted here in the US also.

      I have learned to turn my Breatharian wiring for creating water in my body on and off. Most often I use this technique during travels where, for a few hours of time, it is not advisable to drink the local water.  I can feel my body shift into relying more strongly on my natural Breatharian wiring, and then I consciously release and move back into what is most comfortable for my body. I do not sustain my Breatharian wiring at this point in time.  And, I always resume drinking water as soon as I am able to. Anytime there is physical food in the body, there needs to be physical water in the body also in order for the physical digestion process to work properly.

 

Too often, I feel that people are attempting to simply stop eating, and they are calling that Breatharianism.  It is not.  This is anorexia.   Perhaps it carries with it a sacred intention, but it is anorexia nonetheless. It carries with it an underlying belief that “if only I could stop eating I would be perfect,” and a sense of wanting desperately to rise above or leave the physical world.  But ironically enough, Breatharianism requires a deeper connection with your physical body and the Earth than merely eating food does.  As most Breatharians talk about their daily life experience, they mention the sense of being in constant communion with Spirit, Love, the Earth and the people around them. . In my own experience, when I choose to utilize my Breatharian wiring, I feel everything around me.  I allow my larger auric sphere, the one that exists about 25 feet away from my body, to enliven itself. As a result, the quality of energy in a room, the energy within air, the age and health of nearby trees, the emotions of others. . . all of these are part of the larger field of energy from which I am being nourished.  And over time, I learn to receive only those energies that truly are in tune with my own body, and let the other energies simply be. For a Breatharian, being in communion with what is around you is how you nourish yourself.  And sometimes that is difficult, when there is emotional or physical pain in the bodies of those people who are around you.  Or when there is great imbalance in the physical environment around you.  This is something that I feel needs to be addressed.  Becoming a Breatharian, even exploring this process, means moving more deeply into the world, not up out of it.  Am I lower or less than a Breatharian because I still eat food?  It is true that my body, because I eat physical food, has to keep a portion of itself vibrating at a level that is closer to the physical dimension of the Earth. I believe that everyone has their unique wiring and vibration to offer the planet.  And I wonder if believing that eating food is "lower" than being a Breatharian isn’t actually a part of our being stuck in polarity.  So for now, I would say that the vibrations of eating food and those of nourishing from natural spiritual energies are simply different. 

 

In time, more and more people will 'turn on' their Breatharian wiring more fully.  But I suspect this will happen over a hundred or more years.  We each already have the wiring.  The journey of our soul, here and now in this lifetime, may be to turn it on just a little bit, or a lot.  There is a need for people to fill in the space between those who eat meat, those who are vegan, those who are raw foodists, and those who are Breatharians.  There is a huge energetic gap between Breatharianism and those who consume raw foods for nutrition. I suspect that many people in the near future will be living as partial Breatharians; eating a physical diet of raw vegan live food while also meditating and using yoga to also nourish themselves through their Breatharian wiring. We are in a time of transition.  It is more important to find your own speed along the path than to try to do something beyond which your body and soul are ready to do. When any one of us feels balanced in our body, we are more capable of creating a vibration of love and gratitude which radiates out into the world.  Do not force what is not yet ready to change.  There are already enough physical bodies radiating impatience and stress!  Honor the path of your own soul. And I want to share here a final note, based on some information from Shesat (Thoth’s companion). Both she and Thoth are considered Ascended Masters, and as part of their ascension went through the stage of nourishing their physical bodies more from energy than from traditional food. She speaks from the perspective of being with us, not separate from us here in form:

To you, who are the seeker, Nourishing our Divine Temple, which is our physical body, needs to be done according to the Divine Temple, not according to our beliefs.  The belief that eating food as nourishment is “wrong” and that being able to nourish the body only by subtle energy is "right" is part of your belief system. Each person expresses the love of God in their own unique manner. In order to allow that expression to move through your body, your Divine Temple, and out into the world, it is necessary to first nourish yourself.  Why would God (or Spirit or All That Is) want to speak through you to others?  Because it is your voice that is audible to others.  And that voice is only audible when you live in the same world as those with whom you are serving. Breatharianism is where you as a race are going, but you are not there yet.  A few people have the special task of opening that road for many.  But even more people are being called to remain with the many, and help them learn about Spirit.  Running ahead too far on the path is tempting.  You can feel the possibility, and you want to run quickly into that possibility!  But that may not be your path to walk upon. In order to be of service most people who sense their Breatharian possibility learn to use it a bit, here and there, in order to maintain a vibration of love, compassion and light within their body.  They eat what their bodies ask them to provide for nourishment, giving great thanks to the plants and farmers for the quality of energies that this food makes available to their Divine Living Temple. And by staying connected into the cycle of eating physical food, the love, compassion and gratitude expressed as you eat is felt by the kingdom of plants, the Earth, and all other humans on this planet.  Your Divine Living Temple seeks to be of service.  Let yourself listen to what the Temple wants to receive in order to be in balance now.  Whether you nourish yourself from the subtle energies of Nature or from the graciousness of an organic salad, nuts and a fresh lively mango or apple, you are of service. 

 

It is by creating the vibrations of love, charity, gratitude and compassion that we all are uplifted into a new state of consciousness.  Let yourself create these vibrations, rather than the vibrations of shame and guilt over not being able to do something that your body and your soul's journey has not chosen to do.  Be of loving service to your world exactly where you are and as you are.  That is a true service. My love and gratitude to you, -Norma (with Shesat)

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 wants to enter into our presence now?"

As we each have deepened into our ability to honor the Divine Feminine, we have built a container within our hearts, our bodies, and our minds into which the new face of the Sacred Masculine can flow.

By placing a question before Spirit, and the room filled with listeners and chanters, I opened that container within my heart beyond my own knowledge and experience. If I had simply stated an intention to invoke what I perceived as the Sacred Masculine, then all that could have entered through the song would have been a reflection of my own experience of the Sacred Masculine.

By using a question I opened my own awareness, and the awareness of all those present with me in the room, to the possibilities of a new experience. Not just of the external Sacred Masculine, but of how they perceived and interacted with their own Sacred Masculine.

Which leads me to also share that this process, one of asking questions rather than stating the desired result, is the basis for my energy healing practice as well as my sound healing concerts. I teach this process and the related principles of healing once or twice a year in a Practitioner Weekend Training. This is usually a small group of about a dozen people, with skills in music or healing or people who feel drawn to be present and don't know why. During the weekend we will share toning, silent meditation, good food and those who wish may explore how they can integrate the new principles of healing into their own practice as performers or healers. The next dates are Feb 26-28 in Tucson, AZ and April 3-4 in Portland Oregon.

And so here is where the healing process of Sound Shamanism comes in. As I share hands-off healing sessions I have learned to sit quietly and feel the pulsations of energy between my hands and the client's body. Once the field is established, I also hear tones in the room and moving through the body of the person I am working with. With practice, most people can learn to do this. It has more to do with one's heart than one's ears.

Rather than audibly making the tones that I hear, I ask the healing guides of the client which tone reflects the vibration of what their body and soul want. I find the symphony drops away, and a single tone steps forward. I focus on that tone, and over a few minutes time it changes. The guides usually point me to another place on the body to work on, or give me some channeled information to share about a current life situation.

This process repeats itself over and over during a healing. I can be in the room with someone, or thousands of miles away, connected by a telephone. Because the process is one of asking the person's body and their soul "what is it that you want now for your journey?" I need not know or understand all of the specific issues at play in their life. And I am not responsible for creating the results. I merely assist in revealing new possibilities that their soul and body are choosing.

For me the most powerful healing comes not by telling someone what to do, nor by removing an energy from their space, but by asking questions. As I ask someone's body how it wants to be supported by their soul, they sigh. I see energies begin to loosen up from their physical form, and I ask the energies if they want to move onto their next step of learning. This allows them to know that they are safe. And it completes any agreements the client might have with the energies that are being released, such as to care for them, perhaps on behalf of someone else.

 

If this is of interest to you, it is possible that your guides are pointing you to a Private Session or my workshops in Tucson AZ (Feb 26-28) or Portland, OR (April 3-4). The workshops are interactive experiential trainings, limited to a dozen participants, with plenty of time for personal focus and questions. Please do share this with others whom you think might be interested.

As I move from organ to organ or chakra to chakra and ask someone's body what it wants and how their soul wants to embrace and lovingly support their body new possibilities open. Previously unseen future potentials move into view. Not because I or the client forced change. But because the vibration of their body and energy field more closely reflects the natural connection that was chosen by their soul and body for this moment, in this reality.

For some people this doesn't always make immediate sense. Most of the time people notice a deep stillness, a clarity in their thoughts, their bodies and the space around them after a healing session. What I love about teaching this process to other healers and musicians is that I am sharing an incredibly gentle way to help people shift themselves into their own healing process, and the practitioner need not strain or engage with the energies that are being released.

And so to apply the idea of asking questions directly out into our world. Rather than simply resonating with the grief coming out of Haiti, what if we honored that there is some consciousness that can use the situation to bring about a profound change and honor the journey of the souls of those involved in the situation?

I see each country and culture as expressing their own unique quality into the larger world. When all are present, the Sacred is present. In very simple terms, Haiti is primarily a reflection of the creative feminine. This quality balances the linear masculine of the United States. The creative feminine can easily feel victimized. It's power lies within its own heart and joy. And as an expression of the creative power of the feminine and humanity, the culture of Haiti follows what often appears to be a chaotic path, according to those of us living here in the US.

But we in the US and in the western world must remember that we live within a society that prides itself on expressing the linear masculine. And imposing what works for our culture upon a different culture will ultimately delay the healing process of that country or culture. The citizen's of Haiti (and other cultures and countries) have journeys which offer healing to those of us in the west upon the linear path. Let us support what their souls need by not inflicting upon them what we would want for ourselves, but by listening to what it is that they desire to create for their own culture.

The culture and country of Haiti expresses and holds a quality of Sacred Feminine on behalf of our entire world. How would you honor their service? I believe that the creativity of the Divine Feminine held in trust by the culture of Haiti cannot be fixed by the linear profane masculine. It can only be empowered to heal itself by the expression of the Sacred Masculine. For this reason I include the sound healing, A Call to the Sacred Masculine. (YouTube. or mp3)

Working with the energetic undertones of any disaster can assist those who are being physically and emotionally impacted. Shifting your own viewpoint is the key. If you see someone as a victim, you are unconsciously sending them the message that they have no power. Asking someone what they want, or how their soul wants to express through them now, even telepathically, places them in the position of power. It is equivalent of asking them "how may I serve you?"

Here are a few questions that have occurred to me to ask when I see the television flashing images from Haiti:

How is it that the land itself within the country known as Haiti wants to feel? How grateful I am that this beautiful island has sustained so many people for so long. How much ease and comfort, joy and enjoyment can the bodies of those living in Haiti receive from this land?

I wonder how the relationship between the land, the people, and the journeys of all those souls within Haiti might want to adjust themselves now, to reflect not just the tragedy of the earthquake, but to reflect the incredible possibilities that are opening up as a result of this massive earth change?

What if the aid coming into Haiti now was not thought of as a temporary solution to desperation, but the beginning of a new relationship where the beloved souls of Haiti are treated as deeply respected, honored and even royal persons? What quality of food would you feed such a guest? What quality of clothing would you offer them?

If we were to add up all of the financial aid and attention Haiti has received over the past decades, would it come anywhere near to the total energy, money and resources it is has received since the earthquake, and is about to receive? No. So let us consider the quality of energy underlying and contained within the donations of money, services and goods being offered to Haiti.

If we give donations out of our own desperation, wanting so very much to stop the pain and suffering that is coming into our homes through the television, then the vibration of victim-hood is being offered to Haiti along with our donations. Without meaning to or realizing it, the donation contains within it an energy that reinforces the victim status of the person receiving it.

But what if one sees this process as gifts being lavished upon the most royal of persons among us? These gifts then would be given out of the calmness and gentleness of Spirit. And these same gifts would be imbued with that same calmness and gentleness of Spirit.

And so I share with you that the musical website CDBaby.com will be gifting a portion of the money from all CD and mp3 sales to Haiti from now until Feb 7th. If you have been meaning to purchase one of my four albums for yourself or a friend, you can do so now and also offer a gift to those in Haiti. Go here to order now or go to www.cdbaby.com and search under my name, Norma Gentile. For those who have followed my monthly sound healings, you might also enjoy the albums of my friends who have joined me, the singer and harpist Ruth Cunningham and the Native American flute player Bradford Smith

I would also encourage thoughtful gifts to organizations specializing in supporting local projects and personal empowerment, such as Women for Women International.

My love, respect, and blessings to all, especially those who find themselves in the midst of physical or emotional chaos. May the gentleness of Spirit be the wind within your Heart.

-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 $185 and last about an hour. Please be in touch with me to secure an appointment time. norma@healingchants.com or 734-330-3997.

THE FORK IN THE ROAD
Re-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 6:10

One 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 create into form.
Your body receives nourishment through the 1st chakra because it is a reflection of Gaia’s body, which we know as the Earth. Let your voice drop down, sighing, into the Earth.  Explore how your body is already perfectly connected to the body of Gaia. Continue sounding and let the tones move through your body.

7 How the Earth Receives Your Body    3:15

Feel how your body is connected to Earth, and received by Earth. When we are held in such a deep embrace with the Earth, fear does not exist.  A question that need not be answered, but can be pondered might be: how does your body now want to receive the energies of the Earth, and of the lower dimensions, in order to manifest the journey that your soul desires?

8  A chant with Tibetan bowl and group    3:46
Notice what feels different.  Feel the space around you, extending a few feet away from you all directions.  Feel the quality of internal space as well.  Perhaps the mind is a little quieter or the feet a little less restless upon the floor.

9
 No Perfect Answers  3:54
My guides keep reminding me that the experience of living on Earth isn’t meant to have finite answers.  It is meant to have answers that satisfy us for awhile, but just like a meal we have to have another one fairly soon. There is no final enlightenment moment.   Especially now, there is an unfolding and unfurling of understanding around what the physical world is about and how we are meant to be in relationship to it. Greater and greater numbers of people are interested in gleaning information about connecting into Source, and tapping into those dimensions that are less visible to them.

10
Thanking and Releasing, followed by a Blessing for Your Path  11:19
Let your Higher Self offer you an insight about the next step of your soul’s journey. Then we thank and release the sacred energies that formed the energetic container for the meditation, and offering a blessing for the next step each will take upon their journey in peace, and in power.

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 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 act or react, 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.

 

Often we come to a point of needing to make a decision, and simply can’t decide.  It is like coming to a fork in a road with no way to see a street sign.  Even those of us who know how to listen internally come to these points in our lives where we must choose between two perceived paths or options.  As we look down one path it appears that the journey will be difficult.  As we feel into the other path, the journey looks even harder.  And so we pause, not knowing which is the journey that our soul most desires.  

 

In these cases, you can’t choose which path the soul desires by the simple difficulty of the path.  There isn’t a neon sign that says, “Your expression of Divine Love is upon this path”.  So you begin to walk down one path, making the choices in your life that relate to this path.  And over time, perhaps a few days or weeks or even months or years, you notice an uneasy feeling in your body. Something is not accurate in your life. 

And so you back up and retrace your steps.  And as you return to that fork in the road, you chose differently. Most often we notice this with smaller choices such as a new diet plan or the color we chose to paint our living room.  But we can also choose less accurately with the larger paths in our life. Sometimes we do this with major life choices such as a job or marriage. The forks in the roads of career, marriage or the focus of our school studies – these are perhaps the hardest paths for us to choose wisely.  And if we should find ourselves walking down the fork of the path that seems to diverge from our soul’s journey, it can be the most difficult fork for us to retrace our steps.

 

That is because of the fear we have around choosing wrongly.  It is fear that blocks our ability to hear, early on in our choice, when we have chosen the wrong fork in the road.  When we are in fear, it becomes very difficult to feel when something simply doesn’t feel accurate.  We tend to impose blame and self-shame to such an extent that we deafen ourselves to the natural messages that our mind, heart and body are sending us about our choices.   And there is no need to do this.

 

There are times where our own vision is so limited by our existence in the coarse, heavy energies of the 3rd dimension that we simply don’t have access to the larger picture that Spirit provides for us.  In these cases we must choose and we must begin to move in our day-to-day life, according to whatever choice we made.  And it is only the ability to sense our internal world that tells us “not quite” or “yes” as we begin to journey down the chosen path. And remember, sometimes the “yes’ comes while being in great discomfort, while the “not quite” may occur during a time of relative ease.  Our ability to hear our internal world, and so sense whether we are heightening or lessening our innate connection to Spirit as we walk on our chosen path, lets us know which signal is which.

Without this connection to our inner world we have no way of recognizing, early in the journey, whether or not we have chosen the most accurate path for our soul’s expression.  When we lack the internal connection to Spirit, it becomes easy to blame others around us for our choice, or to shame ourselves for having chosen a path that was too difficult. 

 

Of course neither is an accurate expression of the love your soul has for itself!  And yet most of the time we continue to try to make the path work for us, blaming and self-shaming as we go, rather than simply reversing our direction by making a different choice.

 
 In the Seth materials there is the statement “you create your own reality”.  And how true that is!  By our choices we create our experiences here on Earth.  And it is also true that by making different choices we can re-create what we are experiencing as well. 

 

Once we have started to create a certain reality, the force of our own will power cannot shift that reality to a different reality.  It is our inner re-choosing that let’s us change. The inner re-choosing of our path lets us wake up one morning and find that we have come to a point of deeper ease with those around us and with the world around us.

No Perfect Answers

My guides keep reminding me that the experience of living on Earth isn’t meant to have finite answers.  It is meant to have answers that satisfy us for a while, but just like a meal we have to have another one fairly soon.  One of my teachers, Uranda, spoke about people who built huts along their spiritual paths and moved into them, rather than taking a rest in the hut and then getting on with their journey. 

For myself I don’t believe that we are meant to move into our little huts by the side of the path.  Perhaps a day or two of rest is earned, but there is always more to learn on our journey. There is no final enlightenment moment.   Especially now, there is an unfolding and unfurling of understanding around what the physical world is about and how we are meant to be in relationship to it. Greater and greater numbers of people are interested in gleaning information about connecting into Source, and tapping into those dimensions that are less visible to them.

As we open our consciousness to other dimensions, the increased energies of these other dimensions will impact our physical world, including our physical bodies. By working with the lower dimensions now, your body will develop the roots that it needs to not be blown over by the sheer force of the energetic winds that are coming. Additionally, working with the lower dimensions first gives us the opportunity to be aware of what is around us but not reactive to what surrounds us now.

It is with the greatest of love that I offer what I hear from spirit, and trust that you are listening not just to these words, but to your own inner promptings as well.

 

Blessings to all,

-Norma
