Santa Cruz-ish in California, workshop and private session,


There is an issue that is right in front of each of us and it is demanding attention. This is an issue that is so ingrained into you that you don't even see it as something that could change. It is an issue that is so close to your life, so pervasive and so intimately connected to your daily habits and assumptions about who you are that you have been working around it your entire life. And that is precisely what is changing now.

If you are like most people, you learned to avoid looking at this central life issue. You probably planted bushes in front of the issue, or hung decorations on it to make it look like it belonged in your life. But it doesn't. And we can't look away from it or be distracted by other events in our lives anymore.

The shrubs we planted in front of our issue died. The decorations are falling off. We watered the shrubs. We tried to rehang the decorations. Nothing worked. Because part of letting go of something is addressing it. In order to address it, we must be able to see it clearly.

Often times when this happens there is a sense of inner grief. Sometimes we grieve the bush that we planted that have died. We think we are grieving the issue. But because we are merely grieving what we placed in front of the issue we never really get to cry the tears that we need to cry about the actual issue.

Sometimes we grieve the fact that the issue has been there for so long and we haven't yet addressed it. So we cry for ourselves not addressing the issue. Our tears may never reach deeply enough so that we are grieving the actual issue.

Grief is part of our process of releasing energetic cords or connections (such as contracts / agreements / karma) to what was present in our lives. Feeling the emotion of grief, or even sadness, is how we do this. Emotional energy moves through us when we grieve. This energy helps to both release old cords and reveal new cords. All the bushes and shrubs we planted, all the decorations we have hung are fading from our lives. It is less and less possible to look away from what we need to change.

As a human, I notice that as people grieve, the cords of connection that we have to whatever we are grieving dissolve to reveal a new luminescent cord. The luminescent cord already exists within the old cord. It is our ability to grieve that allows them to be revealed. Most often we experience grief in waves, as the old cords dissolve slowly, at a rate that matches our body's ability to integrate these energetic changes. With each wave of grieving another portion of the luminescent cord is revealed. This new cord reflects how our soul wants to be in a relationship now to whatever is changing in our lives.

These changes apply to all aspects of our life. A job that has been lost, a way of being in the world that is no longer possible, moving to a new home, a person who has died, a relationship that has ended...we form energetic cords in all aspects of our lives. Therefore we need to take time to grieve and close those aspects that have changed. The energies related to the Winter Solstice and the coming months are particularly good for this introspective work.

As we release by grieving the cycles that are indeed of the past, we allow ourselves more pleasure and support for those new cycles now entering. This is how we nourish with all of our being what is coming forth now in our lives.

What is that central life issue that you have been decorating, in order to hide it? If you can let yourself touch the grief within it, you will change.

 

Here is a sound healing to help you do just that.

The new audio meditation, Healing Meditations for Notable Days (such as Solstice, Equinox, Eclipses, Full and New Moons) is now available as a free mp3 or at cost CD. This is from the 11/11/11 meditation, and it applies to current energies nicely.

Healing Meditations for Notable Days

On days which are considered to be sacred it is useful to take a moment to feel the old cycle which is fading away. Letting ourselves feel the grief and sorrow over old patterns departing lets there truly be space to receive the new patterns.

This meditation includes:

- releasing cords to processes that no longer serve your body
- a sound healing "Caught by Spirit"

and spoken meditations releasing energies corresponding to:
- cycles that you have already completed
- tasks that you have already done
- lessons that you have already learned

All of these energetic connections can be released out of your body. Your release of these connections will be reflected in the collective consciousness of humanity. This one way we take advantage of the heightened energies present during Full and New Moons, eclipses, Solstice, Equinox and other notable days.

1 Introduction 

2 Invoking Sacred Space
Archangel Michael, the Pure Energy of Nature, Nature Spirits and Intelligences join you.

3 Inviting Your Angel/Guide into Your Awareness
Most of us have a sphere or portal of energy into our hearts that lies behind our physical bodies. This is where our Guardian Angel, Higher Self and connections to other healing energies most often occurs. Here is a meditation to open this portal, cleanse it, and then invite in the Angel or Guide most suitable to support you now.

4 Understanding what you are already sensing in your body
Besides picking up on other people's physical body issues, the telepathic ability of our lower chakras can also pick up disturbances and changes in the electro-magnetic field of the planet. These are the sorts of changes that many people anticipate will be happening over the next few years. For this reason it is particularly useful to be able to distinguish when the signals your body is sending to you relates to your own body, someone else's body or the planet.

5 Spiritually Significant Days
Many people are already directing their attention, and so therefore their energy, into the date of December 21, 2011. I wonder if the various days preceding this that have interesting numerical combinations serve as practice days for us. How do we energize days that are defined by someone as spiritually significant? How well do we create sacredness afterward the hoopla of a spiritually significant day has passed? Especially when we are receiving the energetic results of what was done? These practice days give us the opportunity to work with the larger energetic patterns that arise in ceremony and return to humanity when many people focus on one thing.

6 Collective Consciousness and Polarity
Outside of our reality there is no polarity. When the energies that we are creating in ceremony move out to the other realms or dimensions, the other realms perceive the energies in their entirety. They do not perceive someone wanting good. They simply perceive someone as wanting.
It is we who divide an energy into its good and bad aspects. The other realms do not perceive just the good, the calming or the joyful aspects of our ceremonies. They perceive the entire consciousness within ourselves, which includes those unconscious elements of fear, shame and all that we may not yet be aware of within our own selves. For this reason we often feel "out of sorts" in the days following a sacred ceremony.

7 Meditation: What is the will of your Soul?
Our soul has its journey upon the earth within our physical form. It comes through our entire body, not just our head. In fact, our soul wants to embrace our entire physical body, every cell and every atom, from our toes through our navel and into our hearts. Here is a meditation to do just this.

8 Sound Healing: Caught by Spirit
Norma sings a Song from Spirit accompanying herself with a schruti box.

9 Cycles of Change
The connection explored in this meditation between your soul and body simply helps you understand that no matter what happens external to yourself that there is always a still quiet center. There is always a place where Spirit and form meet within you. This place can never be changed, altered, or taken away from you.

10 Meditation: Releasing cords, processes, tasks and old lessons
Your release of these connections can be reflected in the collective consciousness of humanity. As you release, this serves as the slightest reminder to others that they too can release. As you change, the message of change expands out to everyone in your life. It is up to their soul and their body to determine what, if any, of this change they may want to consider. You need not wait for them. You can make changes now.

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

 

As of today, I have 30 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.

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.

Updating Your Soul's Journey

What you came here to do has probably chnaged

 

Dear Friends,

Below is an essay and a note to let you know that the new audio meditation, Healing Meditations

for Notable Days (such as Solstice, Equinox, Eclipses, Full and New Moons) is now available as

a free mp3 or at cost CD. This is from the 11/11/11 meditation, and it applies to current energies

nicely.

 

In case you didn't know, we are on the verge of a set of eclipses. The first begins late Thursday

eve into Friday morning (US time). These are drawing out of us emotions that we usually can put

away, or at least hide from others. These emotions provide the impetus we need for yielding

ourselves to new opportunities.

 

The magnification of energies during the window between these eclipses (Nov 24-25 and Dec 10)

lets us not hide what we otherwise hide, even from ourselves. Astrologer Mark Dodich says

"Those dreams and ideals that come from your soul mission want to come to the surface now."

If you feel so drawn, there is more information on the new Healing Meditations for Notable Days

below. Please also consider joining me for an event, and letting others know about the

concerts/workshops I offer in various locations.

Updating Your Soul's Journey

What you came here to do has probably chnaged

 

First, A Note On Psychic Learning

For most people psychic gifts need to be relearned in each lifetime. The world is vibrationally

distinct in each lifetime and so is your physical body. It is only natural that you would have to

relearn how to be energetically in relationship to yourself and to the world. This is particularly true

about how we relate to our soul's journey and foreknowing future aspects of it.

Whatever your soul planned to do here before you incarnated on Earth has probably changed.

Especially if you incarnated before 1972. Humanity changed. The planet changed. Whatever your

soul decided to do here on Earth before you incarnated has probably changed.

 

During the past fifty or so hears there have been multiple shifts in our reality that our souls did not

anticipate. Depending on when in our linear time line your soul decided upon this lifetime's goals

and challenges, you may be experiencing yourself as disconnected from your own life. Isolation is

one symptom I commonly hear from clients, as well as the sensation of floating away from the

physical life you are living. From my experience, this simply means that what your mind may think

is your soul's journey is no longer your soul's journey.

 

Most of us have been told by someone at some point either what our soul's journey is, or have

figured it out for ourselves. For me, I feel that no one can fully understand or know the journey of

anyone's soul. Not even our own. But we can have senses about what we are drawn to do in this

lifetime, and how we are to do it.

 

Because of the dramatic changes that have already taken place and the increasing pace of future

changes, I find it useful to revisit the trajectory of the journey of one's soul on a regular basis.

The soul's journey is more apt, at this point in time, to be revealed first to your body, then to your

heart, and finally to your brain. Once entered into, your new soul's journey will continue to weave

and shift throughout your lifetime. Learning how to monitor and adapt to changes in your soul's

journey is most useful.

 

As you explore your journey, it is your mind that is able to look backwards and tell you where you

have been. It is the heart and body that can look into the present moment and tell you where you

are. Together, the mind, heart and body can chart a potential path for your future. But this is

usually the near future, as your external world continues to shift and change.

 

I am emphasizing here that the brain can only look back at what has already happened. Most of

us use our minds as the determiner of what to do. This leads us to repeat old patterns and repeat

the same unwanted results. When this happens it is easy to assume that we are not in touch with

our inner spiritual life or outer world.

 

But perhaps there is another reason. We experience the present moment most strongly not as

thoughts but as kinesthetic sensations in our body. Simply put, the body lives only in the present

moment. The mind remembers the past and can anticipate the future. Our minds therefore live

without being anchored in the present moment. This can be very helpful, but not if you are trying

to understand your soul's journey right here and right now.

 

Big Picture Information from Thoth:

About 1997 our system of creating linear time changed. Because of this our psychic ability no

longer sees the future with the ease it once did. This is because we are no longer creating our

future probabilities in the same way as we were before.

 

Our new system of psychic perception of the future looks more like this:

Our body sees where we are in the present moment. That information rises to our heart center.

The heart feels our relationship to this present moment. Do we like it and want to extend our

experience or are we ready to move onto some other experience? Our heart answers this

question and sends the information onto our brain. Our brain collects the information from our

body and heart, adds its own ability to see the past and comes up with the most likely potential

future.

 

Remember that our brains do have the ability to live in the past, present and future. We as

humans are stepping into an exploration of creating outside of linear time. The first step in this

exploration is comprehending how linear time functions. We must first understand time in order to

understand how not to be subject to time.

 

In geometry (and I promise this will be easy, so please keep reading) there is a basic concept that

if you have one point and then decide on a second point, you can draw a line between them. That

line can extend beyond those two points into infinity in both directions. So you only need two

points in space to define linear time. Where you have been and where you are.

 

What we are now able to do is change the point that exists in our past. By looking back and

clearing past patterns the point behind us changes its location. That means the line drawn

between our past and our present naturally changes. Our potential future changes every time we

address, clear and release issues from our past.

 

I'm not talking past lives here. My guides are clearly stating that by addressing this life's issues

we change this life's future. When we make changes in this lifetime those changes echo out to all

of our other lifetimes and offer healing changes into those lifetimes. Since our bodies exist in the

here and now, making changes in the here and now will get you the biggest results.

 

The head has to have the other partners, the body and heart, in order to see where it is going. If it

is just looking backwards all that it can tell you is where you have been, which means you are

going to create more of the past rather than utilize the new elements that are available to you now

to create a different future.

 

How to get in touch with your body &endash; a simple meditation

Lie down on your back. Bend your knees so your feet are flat on the floor or surface you are lying

on. This naturally pressed your lower back against the surface you are on, and opens up the

pelvic region to increased energy flow.

 

Feel the breath in your body. Feel the breath in your lower body. Breath as if you could breathe

from your feet up through your knees and into your belly. Your hips move and your lower back

expands every time you breathe. Take normal size breaths. How easy can that quality of breath

be in your body? Follow that quality of breath as you imagine the breath entering from your lower

body. Let it exit wherever it wants to exit. At some point you may fall asleep, go into a light trance

or meditation state. You might also notice that the direction of the breath seems to change. Just

notice whatever you notice. Let your body's wisdom tell your mind something that your mind

cannot know on its own. This is a time of exploration. What has your body been wanting to tell

you?

3 Inviting Your Angel/Guide into Your Awareness

Most of us have a sphere or portal of energy into our

hearts that lies behind our physical bodies. This is

where our Guardian Angel, Higher Self and

connections to other healing energies most often

occurs. Here is a meditation to open this portal,

cleanse it, and then invite in the Angel or Guide most

suitable to support you now.

4 Understanding what you are already sensing in

your body

Besides picking up on other people's physical body

issues, the telepathic ability of our lower chakras can

also pick up disturbances and changes in the electromagnetic

field of the planet. These are the sorts of

changes that many people anticipate will be

happening over the next few years. For this reason it

is particularly useful to be able to distinguish when the

signals your body is sending to you relates to your

own body, someone else's body or the planet.

5 Spiritually Significant Days

Many people are already directing their attention, and

so therefore their energy, into the date of December

21, 2011. I wonder if the various days preceding this

that have interesting numerical combinations serve as

practice days for us. How do we energize days that

are defined by someone as spiritually significant? How

well do we create sacredness afterward the hoopla of

a spiritually significant day has passed? Especially

when we are receiving the energetic results of what

was done? These practice days give us the

opportunity to work with the larger energetic patterns

that arise in ceremony and return to humanity when

many people focus on one thing.

6 Collective Consciousness and Polarity

Outside of our reality there is no polarity. When the

energies that we are creating in ceremony move out to

the other realms or dimensions, the other realms

perceive the energies in their entirety. They do not

perceive someone wanting good. They simply

perceive someone as wanting.

It is we who divide an energy into its good and bad

aspects. The other realms do not perceive just the

good, the calming or the joyful aspects of our

ceremonies. They perceive the entire consciousness

within ourselves, which includes those unconscious

elements of fear, shame and all that we may not yet

be aware of within our own selves. For this reason we

often feel "out of sorts" in the days following a sacred

ceremony.

7 Meditation: What is the will of your Soul?

Our soul has its journey upon the earth within our

physical form. It comes through our entire body, not

just our head. In fact, our soul wants to embrace our

entire physical body, every cell and every atom, from

our toes through our navel and into our hearts. Here is

a meditation to do just this.

release, this serves as the slightest reminder to others

that they too can release. As you change, the

message of change expands out to everyone in your

what, if any, of this change they may want to consider.

You need not wait for them. You can make changes

now.

 (Full and New Moons, Solstice, Equinox, Eclipses and 12.21.2012)

 

On days which are considered to be sacred it is useful to take a moment to feel the old cycle which is fading away.  Letting ourselves feel the grief and sorrow over old patterns departing lets there truly be space to receive the new patterns.

 

This meditation includes 

 - releasing cords to processes that no longer serve your body
 - a sound healing “Caught by Spirit”

and spoken meditations releasing energies corresponding to:

 - cycles that you have already completed

 - tasks that you have already done

 - lessons that you have already learned

 

All of these energetic connections can be released out of your body. Your release of these connections will be reflected in the collective consciousness of humanity.  This one way we take advantage of the heightened energies present during Full and New Moons, eclipses, Solstice, Equinox and other notable days.

 

 

 

1 Introduction


2  Invoking Sacred Space 

Archangel Michael, the Pure Energy of Nature, Nature Spirits and Intelligences join us.

 

3 Inviting Your Angel/Guide into Your Awareness
Most of us have a sphere or portal of energy into our hearts that lies behind our physical bodies.  This is where our Guardian Angel, Higher Self and connections to other healing energies most often occurs.  Here is a meditation to open this portal, cleanse it, and then invite in the Angel or Guide most suitable to support you now.  

 

4 Understanding what you are already sensing in your body

Besides picking up on other people’s physical body issues, the telepathic ability of our lower chakras can also pick up disturbances and changes in the electro-magnetic field of the planet. These are the sorts of changes that many people anticipate will be happening over the next few years.  For this reason it is particularly useful to be able to distinguish when the signals your body is sending to you relates to your own body, someone else’s body or the planet.

 

5 Spiritually Significant Days

Many people are already directing their attention, and so therefore their energy, into the date of December 21, 2011.  I wonder if the various days preceding this that have interesting numerical combinations serve as practice days for us.  How do we energize days that are defined by someone as spiritually significant? How well do we create sacredness afterward the hoopla of a spiritually significant day has passed?  Especially when we are receiving the energetic results of what was done?  These practice days give us the opportunity to work with the larger energetic patterns that arise in ceremony and return to humanity when many people focus on one thing.

 

6 Collective Consciousness and Polarity

Outside of our reality there is no polarity.  When the energies that we are creating in ceremony move out to the other realms or dimensions, the other realms perceive the energies in their entirety.  They do not perceive someone wanting good.  They simply perceive someone as wanting. It is we who divide an energy into its good and bad aspects. The other realms do not perceive just the good, the calming or the joyful aspects of our ceremonies.  They perceive the entire consciousness within ourselves, which includes those unconscious elements of fear, shame and all that we may not yet be aware of within our own selves.  For this reason we often feel “out of sorts” in the days following a sacred ceremony.

 

7 Meditation:  What is the will of your Soul?

Our soul has its journey upon the earth within our physical form.  It comes through our entire body, not just our head.  In fact, our soul wants to embrace our entire physical body, every cell and every atom, from our toes through our navel and into our hearts.  Here is a meditation to do just this.

 

8 Sound Healing: Caught by Spirit

Norma sings a Song from Spirit accompanying herself with a schruti box. 

 

9 Cycles of Change

The connection explored in this meditation between your soul and body simply helps you understand that no matter what happens external to yourself that there is always a still quiet center.  There is always a place where Spirit and form meet within you. This place can never be changed, altered, or taken away from you.

 

10 Meditation: Releasing cords, processes, tasks and old lessons

Your release of these connections can be reflected in the collective consciousness of humanity.  As you release, this serves as the slightest reminder to others that they too can release. As you change, the message of change expands out to everyone in your life. It is up to their soul and their body to determine what, if any, of this change they may want to consider.  You need not wait for them.  You can make changes now.

Time and Creation
Norma Gentile

 

Below is an article inspired by Mary and Archangel Michael. I can’t say I totally understand it myself, but I feel my mind being ‘re-wired’ and my body come alive in a new way each time that I have read it.  And so I share it with you. 

 

I did not know as I was channeling this essay that we are entering in to a phase described by the Mayans as "The Time of No Time”. This, according to astrologer and author Cal Garrison, is a period where future, past and present times collapse into each other. I experience this as a brief moment that feels like a timeless eternity opening inside of my own body. And it is happening in the oddest of places and seemingly random moments - a parking lot, standing in line in a store, on hold during a phone call, waiting for my computer to update a file or just sitting in the sunshine.  Time stands still while gazing into the face of eternity. 

 

I sat down to write and asked what one message would be most useful to share.  I had asked this after inviting Archangel Michael into the room.  To my surprise it was Mary Magdalene who identified herself to me and who then began to help me form thoughts.  Below is a transcript of what was shared.

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - -

 

What if time were not just linear or non-linear, but capable of existing in different forms within each dimension? Time is not unique to your third dimension, but its expression within your dimension is unique.  What if time were an expression of the consciousness of each Being?

 

You have been told that Time is an illusion. Some of you have had the experience of stepping beyond humanity’s agreed upon definition of time as linear.  If you consider that time may bend itself, much as you can turn your face to one side and allow your body to remain stationary, facing forward, so too can time be at once both linear and non-linear. 

Your hearts are not linear.  Your soul is not linear. Your bodies are not made to function solely within a linear timeline.  Only one of many types of thought processes within your minds can conceive of things in a linear manner.  To use a metaphor from your current computerized lifestyle:  the linear timeline that you refer to is a result of one program among a multitude of software programs that your brains agreed to have installed within it.

 

Why is this important?

 

Because at this point in time your ability to utilize many other ways of reasoning that include other aspects of who you are (your heart, your soul, your spiritual network of helpers and your physical body) are being called upon.  They are being called by the changes of the cosmic winds to step into your awareness and offer their own unique counsel.

 

You are not alone. But for thousands of years you have let your brain function as if it were all alone. You have believed that your very consciousness resided in that lovely round globe which rests upon the upper portion of your torso.  But what of the remainder of your body?  If indeed it were only your brain that held your consciousness, then there would be no need to animate your body.  However, it is the loving presence of your consciousness that brings life-force into your entire body.

 

The bucket is empty without water. So too your body is a vessel waiting to be filled by you.  Thinking merely identifies that the bucket exists.  Actively engaging in your body fills it with water.

 

Let us address the issue of linear and non-linear time.

 

Consider this metaphor: Time is the action of moving the bucket to fill it with water.  In order to fill a bucket with water one usually must turn the bucket to dip it into water. Turning the bucket on its side and filling it with water means allowing the bucket to enter the water.  Here the water is linear time, and the bucket represents your ability to bend time and let the bending of time enter into and pass through linear time. 

 

This metaphor represents how linear and non-linear time interpenetrate each other and co-exist within your reality.  In this moment those of us who are Spiritual Teachers place a great importance upon your understanding of time as a result of where your thoughts originate from.  Not just the thoughts of your head, but the reasoning process and resulting thoughts that travel through your entire physical body create your experience of time.

 

Thinking with aspects of yourself that include your body, your soul, your spiritual support network and your heart allow you to access the multitude of software programs within you that create non-linear time.  Thinking as you have been taught to think, with your head, limits you to experiencing time only in its linear form.

 

When you exist in linear time you are limited to creating within linear time and in a linear fashion.  When you think using all of who you are, you access the possibilities of creating outside of linear creation.  This means engaging the thought process with your heart, your soul, your spiritual network of helpers and your physical body.

 

And it is not we of the Spiritual Realms who hold the key to how you experience time.  You alone are the guardians of your own time.  When you choose to follow the principles of time in its linear form, you continue to think within the limitations of the physical brain.  The bucket is defined but empty of water.

 

As you explore your entire body, and how thought moves through your body as well as your soul and those Beings of Consciousness who comprise your spiritual support team, you open yourself to experiencing the other manners in which time expresses itself in your dimension.

 

For now, notice when time seems to stand still.  And when it passes quickly.  Notice how your body feels and how you experience yourself in relationship to your Spiritual support team and your soul.  All these give subtle clues about what you are doing and what you are not doing

 

Why is learning to experience non-linear time important? 

When you experience non-linear time you are in a position to create your reality in a non-linear fashion.  Have you ever wondered why your world has seemingly developed so much maturity (in some ways) in the past 500 years?  It is because various humans have, for a moment here and there, stumbled into experiencing themselves as comprising wholly their soul, heart, body and spiritual team members.

 

And these moments of non-linear time and creation, like the bucket, have been dipped into the water of your ongoing linear creation.  Those things which were created in a non-linear fashion were brought into your linear reality and filled with your linear reality.  Much like the bucket was filled with water.

 

We said at the start that your thought identifies the bucket.  And your active engagement in the world fills it with water. Now we would add that the quality of your thought is now able to  change the water in the bucket from reflecting linear creation principles to reflecting non-linear creation possibilities. You are now a participant in the generation of non-linear reality and hence creation.

How your body receives grounding within the changing electromagnetic field of Earth

As we have changed in consciousness, so too Gaia’s consciousness and therefore the Earth has changed.  The electromagnetic field of the Earth is constantly shifting and changing.  More so now.  This meditation is one way of helping our own electromagnetic field (our aura) listen and respond to the changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field and the consciousness of Gaia.

Here is a meditation inviting your body to remember its innate connection to your soul. Deeply relaxing, this meditation includes segments of releasing energies within your body and your aura. By inviting those energies that match your soul from within the lower dimensions to reestablish their natural connection to you, a fluid and ongoing energetic dialogue is created between your soul, your body, and the Earth. This is a new style of grounding which serves us well as we move into a new era of consciousness.

Our Western culture has cultivated such a dependence on our heads and our ability to think that it has also cultivated a disconnection with our bodies.  We have ended up with lovely bodies that walk our heads around.  Fear has become an intrinsic way of life. It has become our daily companion.  This is because we as humans can not access our own body’s knowing and telepathic experience of the world which lies within our navel chakra and within our enteric nervous system.

As we recover this lost skill, we will get better at feeling what is and isn’t actually a danger to our body.  As this happens, our level of fear decreases.

My guides during this meditation included Thoth, Shesat, Mary and Archangel Michael.

Meditations exploring where “home” is within your body, how to get there and how to remain there.



1. Introduction
2 Invocation of Sacred Space

3 How Energies that are not ours show themselves to us
Creating clearer and stronger communication with your Guides and Angels.   The quality of connection we have with our guides depends largely on our ability to understand when energetic consciousnesses, such as guides and angles, are telling us to let them go, or let them change and update their connection to us.

4. Home is in your Navel
As we learn that there is a quiet still-point which already resides within us, the quality of spirit which imbues this silence moves out to our external world. 

5.  Meditation for Ease in 2nd Chakra
It isn’t just about sex.  Our 2nd chakra helps to determine the quality of our life.  The ease we have interacting with the world might be simple and uneventful, or each day might feel like we are bracing ourselves against the torments of daily life.  In most cases our soul wants our body to have an easy and joyous experience of daily living. 

The polarities of this reality are more deeply held in the lower chakras then in the upper chakras. Early non-verbal cues that often teach us racism and sexism lie in the 2nd chakra.  So too the belief that we are not ‘good enough’ or that we don’t have the right to exist, or permission to be happy have their roots within the 2nd chakra.

6 Meditation for Soul/Body Gender Expression in 2nd Chakra
Beginning to explore how your soul expresses both its male and female gender through your physical body.

7 Revealing the Grounding that is Natural for Your Body
Through your feet, your 1st chakra and every cell of your body there are innate connections to those energies that your body knows how to use to nourish itself. Judging our body keeps our body from grounding itself because it keeps us contracted away from these nourishing energies.

How Acts and Actions of Chaos Lead Us to Our Spiritual Purpose


I have never thought of springtime as a time of inner or outer death.  But this year, at least for me, it has been a journey through chaos into an ever deepening stillness within.

I suspect that I am not the only one who has been called, over and over again, to be present with extremes of grief and joy in these past weeks and months. Or to hold in loving compassion those who are undergoing severe and drastic life changes.  Each time I think to myself “this has to be the last change, the last huge political uprising, the last death, the last flood or earthquake or tornado.”  But it hasn’t been.

World events have had no rest.  Ever vigilant, news channels report uprising after uprising in the Middle East and elsewhere.  The Earth seems to heave her crust beneath modern cities while unending torrents of water flow into towns and farmland.  If there is no inner personal crisis to attend to there is always an external one.

Celebrating life is associated with springtime. Especially here in the northern climate of the US it is clear that the land is verdant once again.  What was hidden, in terms of the life force of Nature, is now clearly visible as lush green fields (and lawns) host brilliantly colorful flowers.

As I look out into my wonderful blooming garden, I wonder, does this obvious beauty mean it is over?  Has the repeated cycle of being called to be present for death and illness and the world’s political changes ended now that spring has past and summer is nearly upon us?  Or perhaps, because I am human, that very human part of me asks Spirit if there can be an intermission, a pause, between the incessant acts of human violence and Nature’s ever increasingly dramatic storms?

Probably not.  Because with each external change, we are called to reassess who we are, and how we want to express ourselves as Spiritual Beings into our ever shifting world. Living in a constant state of overwhelm is becoming an acceptable permanent condition for many people that I see in healing sessions nowadays. Consider, even a few years ago, would you be doing all that you are doing now in a normal day? 

With each act of external change we are being called into a state of being that exists only when we are silently and firmly living from that place of “home” within our body.  Within this place there is usually no sense of rushing urgency, and no sense of being pushed or pulled by outer events.  This is the spiritual and energetic antidote to overwhelm.

As the cycles of change move, they create an opportunistic chaos.  Within this chaos are all the parts and pieces we need to create an entirely new world. I wonder if our ability to be present deep within our bodies isn’t a part of creating a deepening sense of “home” for ourselves that over time might resonate to others in our world.   

I know from deep within my own “home” in my body that the continuing cycles of violence, whether from Nature or Humanity, are opportunities to let go of what we cannot carry through our personal spiritual and physical storms.  Deciding what we treasure helps us recognize who we are now.  We are then free to release into the chaos of the storms that encircle us those things, including relationships with others, that are no longer a part of our soul’s journey.

Trying to do it all, or carry it all, or care for everything that is moving into a chaotic state leads to overwhelm.  Find that still center point within yourself that is home.  Here you already are.
 
If you would like to explore this further, please join me on Wednesday,                   June 15 at 9pm EDT (New York City time) for a free Phone Meditation. The focus of this meditation is an exploration of where “home” is within your physical body, how to get there and how to remain there.  
 
This hour will includes a series of silent and spoken meditations from my guides Atamira (a Hathor), Mary and Archangel Michael. Plan on finding a quiet space where you can lie down and be deeply at rest and undisturbed for the                   duration of the meditation. This will be recorded and posted as a free                   podcast or at-cost CD.  at www.normagentile.libsyn.com and on iTunes under podasts.



Some Additional Thoughts

Of the many observations I and others have made about the past few months, here are three ideas that my guides shared with me which may be useful to consider.  I do not believe that any one person, no matter how spiritually or psychically gifted, knows all and sees all.  I offer these ideas merely as possible ways of framing for our human minds what is happening in dimensional realms that is far beyond the comprehension of our human minds. Even though we like to think we can know it all!

 

Shredding Yourself into Multiple Realities

As you read this don’t try to make it make sense immediately.  This metaphor for what is happening to us comes from Thoth.  He suggests that you simply let the energies behind the words “play” with you as you go through your day and they will integrate into your subconscious during dreamstate.  In a few days you may notice that somehow you experience what is happening in our world differently.  And so your choices and behaviors also change.

If it was possible to put all of what you define yourself as being and doing (a mother, a teacher, a healer…) into a container, mix it well, and then shred each role and definition of yourself into the tiniest fragment, you would see all of who you are accumulated into one big pile. But the pieces that make up each of your roles in life would no longer be connected, one to another. 

We are pulling apart each aspect of who we are.  Each role that we play, (mother, daughter, good friend) or thing that we do (teach, heal, work, drive a carpool) is being shredded into its tiniest portion.  And these portions are being mixed together.  Their relationship to other portions of what we do in that same job or role in our life is not clear. Sort of like finely shredded cabbage in cole slaw before you add the dressing. All the parts of who we are still exist, but they are not connected.  There is no spiritual equivalent of mayonnaise or vinegar to bind the various pieces together.

This began last winter. In late January of 2011 up until early May we began experiencing ourselves in multiple realities.  That is a fancy way of saying that decisions we make in one moment are remade in the next moment due to quickly changing external circumstances.  Many people are experiencing a type of “sea-sickness” when their physical body is not fully engaged with and stable in one reality.  In the western culture we have seldom focused on feeling our navel chakra.  And yet it is within this chakra that our unique tone or energy signature lies that tells our soul where its home is. 

Again, this feeling of “home” being within the body.

 

Choosing One Reality (and living in it)

For years I and others have mentioned that the changes we make here in the third dimension move out to other dimensions.  Naturally, changes that are made in other dimensions affect us here as well.  Not all the changes or choices we make in our lives are reflected in the other dimensions.  Some choices are, and some are not, at least not in this one single reality in which our physical body lives right now. 

My guides suggest that our physical bodies are designed to exist in only one reality at a time. We shift realities as we change our minds and make new choices.  When we do not commit entirely to a new choice we straddle realities, becoming ungrounded, fuzzy, and unable to function well.  The solution is to commit to a choice, following through with whatever that would mean in daily life, and allow your body to ground into that choice and the resulting reality.  Later on if you decide to choose differently, you can.  But first you must feel in your body the results of your choice.

Our Galactic Tennis Game

Recently the consciousness of our planet as arisen to the point where we are now receiving back from other dimensions the equivalent of energetic “tennis balls” that we launched out hundreds of years ago.  When our planet began to awaken, hundreds or perhaps thousands of years ago, our actions began to quietly be whispered to the dimensions above and below us.  As our awakening increased, so did the volume of our actions increase within the other dimensions.  Our actions became more and more audible to all the other dimensions.

And as those beings of consciousness that reside in other dimensions listened, they began to respond to our activity.  It is their response to our choices that is now being felt by us.  Each of Humanity’s choices moved not just through our own lives, but also out into other dimensions.  Those beings of consciousness in other dimensions are now sending back to us tides of energies that reflect the changes they have made, based on our initial choices.  

Think of it as a huge Galatic tennis game between friends.  No winners will be announced.  As anyone of us chooses to do something differently, the energy of our choice is broadcast to beings in other dimensions ,who may then also choose to do something differently.  And they let us know the changes they have made, so that we can respond to their choices with additional changes on our part.

Does that mean that every choice any human has ever made is being echoed back to us now?  No.

As with an overly chatty friend, much of our energetic activity was ignored by the other dimensions.  Or perhaps we have moved so quickly through various realities that we are no longer aware of the repercussions of our actions upon realities we left long ago.

Starting in the fall of 2010 and intensifying into the Spring of 2011 more and more of our choices and activities are being heard and responded to by beings of consciousness in other dimensions.  Which means that the changes they make as a result of our choices echo back to us in our lives and in our larger world.  It is a tennis game across dimensions and time.

Which brings me to the topic of time speeding up and events happening in a non-stop mode.  This is one result of our new inter-dimensional energetic tennis game.  It is also a reflection of how quickly we are moving through realities.  With each choice a new reality emerges, and we step into it. And while my human self longs for a summer break from all of the change, I know that will not happen. 

As we head into June with three eclipses and a number of notable astrological events, I can’t help but think that we are all headed for a “new normal”.  Slow days used to mean a day of reflection and meditation with a few small items to do on my agenda.  Now, at least for me, those times of quiet are less frequent and more cherished.  And yet I find that deepening sense of home is carried within me at all times.

My blessings to each of you,

 It wasn’t just an Earthquake.  Nor was it just a tsunami.  Nor is it even the ongoing nuclear meltdowns. The electromagnetic field of the planet shifted.  It happened in the hours just before the Earthquake and for several hours after the Earthquake.  And because of that, our brains and the way we think have changed too.

 

What does that mean?

Simply put; you can’t think the same thoughts this week that you thought last week. The physical shift of the Earth made more concrete within our own bodies whatever change was necessary so that our thought patterns will not regress.  That is a gift to all of humanity from those now enduring hardship and loss in Japan. 

And not coincidentally, I'm on my way to Portland Oregon for a meditation concert and workshop this weekend. The concert will be recorded, and so the energies of this evening will go out worldwide and be available as an mp3 or CD. The focus of Friday evening's concert is creating music to remind us that in the midst of chaos, we can find the power of stillness, and the sacredness of our own deep inner power. I now understand why my guides and angels suggested doing this on this date, amidst the chaos of earth changes, so that the recording can incorporate both the ongoing chaos and fear as well as the expansive Divine Feminine energies of the Full Moon and the steady balancing qualities of the Spring Equinox.
Please let friends know about the Portland Oregon Concert!

There are thoughts that are very hard for us to entertain now, after the quake.  These same thoughts were ones we considered normal to have before the quake. There is a deeper quality of compassion and less judgment.  A deeper reflection and stillness that we either yearn for or are taking steps to find and cultivate now.  Our brain’s function has shifted.  We have lost some of our memory.  The kind of memory that tells our computer where we were the last time we opened a web browser.  We can no longer access it.  There is no going back.  We are not who we were. 

The electromagnetic field that surrounds the Earth is both generated by the Earth as well as all the living beings who are present upon and within the Earth.   As my definition of living beings I’m including plants, animals, minerals and all that humanity has created. Including nuclear power plants.  These power plants emit electromagnetic fields.  To a lesser extent the electrical lines in my backyard that bring electricity into my house, along with my phone lines and even cable TV lines, also generate small electromagnetic fields.  As a result, the larger EM field of the planet is impacted by these smaller EM fields. 

My guides were suggesting I think of this like acupuncture.  If the planet is the body of the patient, then the planetary electromagnetic field is the energetic body of the patient. The nuclear reactors are needles being inserted into the patient’s body; in this case the Earth.  If someone randomly inserts needles into someone’s body, chances are they won’t hit any major acupuncture points, or hit enough minor points that relate to each other in a way to disturb the flow of energy in any given meridian.  Any disruption in the meridians or chi of the patient that does occur due to needles being inserted randomly the patient’s own body will restore within a few hours or days, once the needles are removed.

In the case of our planet, the nuclear reactors and similarly large producers of electromagnetic fields have been plunked down upon the planet.  But they are not spread out evenly.  They are clustered into certain regions and in lines up and down the coasts of Japan and the east coast of the US.   Where the reactors exist in these lines, it is possible that they are forming secondary energy meridians, with each reactor functioning as a potent nodal point.  These secondary energy meridians exist alongside the natural energy meridians of the Earth.  Where they are clustered, they are creating secondary nodal points.

My wondering goes perhaps a bit differently here than what you might expect.  I wonder if Earth’s energies and Gaia’s consciousness feels these secondary meridians and might be incorporating them to catapult the change in human consciousness?  That is to say, what humanity has built is not wrong.  It is being used in a manner we didn’t anticipate to help us spring more quickly into a new way of viewing and interacting with our Earth. And we may not find this comfortable.  Perhaps this discomfort will motivate us to seek within ourselves that still center point.  Or plant a garden.  Or call a dear friend.

 

 

from Mary,

     Tension and Release

Tension and release are the acts by which you as humans move forward or backward – as to which direction, that is your choice.

You may choose to see disaster as a step backward for humanity.  Or as an opportunity to receive new learning tools.

Your heart opens, and what pours forth nourishes your world.

 

A Note from Norma:

At about the some moment the Earth shrugged her shoulder under the island of Japan, my own body sighed deeply.  Months of a tension which had slowly built up inside of my core released as I turned from my computer screen to reach some papers behind me. It was an emotional energy and a sigh and a question mark, all pulsing up and out and into the space around me.

It was also a surprise.  Before I gathered my thoughts, the energy had gone from the room.  And the uneasiness I had been feeling inside of my body was gone. Completely.  It was not mine.  It had grown so slowly that I had not even thought to ask the tension if it was mine.  Like most of us who feel things going on inside of us, I assumed that the sensation was mine.  But it wasn’t. It was the Earth’s.

Our bodies are resonant to the physical Earth.  Although we may have blocked it, we have the ability to be telepathic with the Earth.  Many people find it easier to be telepathic in their emotions.  They know they are resonant with the grief, fear and pain they see on the television.  Others are now resonant with the Earth, as she builds up tension and then releases it.  Just as we are on a journey, so is Gaia, whose body is the physical Earth.

This is what I am exploring now in workshops and concerts.  If you feel drawn, please come and join me on this exploration.  Events are listed on the Calendar page.  Individual sessions are available no matter where you live. (look under Private Sessions)  And there are nearly 30 meditations available as free podcasts or at cost CDs. (under Meditation CDs and Podcasts) Just start wherever you want….afterall, you can’t go back, so you may as well go forward!

 My blessing to all who read this,

Not Me!
How We Play the Blame Game

Dear Friends,

I'm on my way to
Portland Oregon, where we (meaning myself and you who come to the concert) will be part of a NEW ALBUM of Healing Songs & Chants. Incorporating the energies of the Full Moon and Spring Equinox, there will be microphones amidst the many wonderful candles of the Old Church on Friday, March 18, and I hope you will join me there.

The focus of this concert is creating music to remind us of the power of stillness, and the sacredness of deep power. Please join me, and share this notice with others. Doors open at 7:30pm for seating. Tickets $15 are available at the door, online, and New Renaissance (where I'll share a workshop on newly emerging aspects of sound and healing). Bring meditation pillows if you want. More information on the
Calendar page.

Please let friends know that they can find me in these different events and cities

Not Me! How we play the Blame Game

Blame is a child's game. We learned to play it at the youngest of ages, when we pointed to our sibling, our pet dog, cat or goldfish when asked by a parent "WHO DID THAT?" This was a natural response we developed to protect ourselves from the emotional arrow of anger behind the question being hurled at us. What we learned, unfortunately, was to perpetuate this scenario over and over again in our lives.

When we were children, the emotions of adults rained down upon us, becoming so overwhelming that we may have even experienced these energies of highly charged adult emotions as actual physical pain. And we need not have been in the same room as the adult emitting the emotional energy. How often has a crying child interrupted a whispered argument between parents? Or an uneasy child, unable to fall soundly asleep, kept parents who have unexpressed anger between them awake night after night?

My point is this: emotions are energies. They are just as real as radio waves and just as easily picked up by infants, children, psychics and most anyone who has been born into a human body. We just don't always allow ourselves to listen to this level of energy in our lives.

Back to blame. This is a particularly common energetic frequency. If you could hear emotions as musical notes, I would say blame is a
tri-tone. These two notes are locked into each other, grinding against each other, and they want desperately to resolve into what in musical parlance is called a perfect 5th. The noteworthy (pun intended) aspect of this motion is that the tri-tone (made up of literally 3 whole steps) changes into a perfect 5th when either of the notes moves away from the other note.

Just like in the blame game, either partner (or note) can move the situation into consonance by stepping back. And that step need be only ? of a step. It takes far more concentration for two musicians to sustain the relationship of a tri-tone than a perfect 5th. When I ask groups to sing opposing notes to each other, a tri-tone in veritably turns into a perfect 5th. Sustaining the emotional and sonic tension of a tri-tone for any length of time is just too hard! Just like the interval of a tri-tone does not want to remain static, the emotion of blame is not a static emotion meant to be expressed in an ongoing manner.

Blame is an emotion created by the mind to help us acknowledge tension in our life and at the same time strongly desire to resolve it. Blame allows us to step back from a situation and take the energetic focus off of ourselves for a moment and place it on another person or a government or a system or our pet goldfish.

As we deepen spiritually, blame is no longer a tool we need to hold onto. Bit by bit we come to understand that (for the most part) we choose to step into an uncomfortable situation, and it is up to us to step out of that same situation. The emotion we feel is part of our body and soul telling our mind that the situation is not healthy and that we must do something about it. In the past we have used blame to dilute the intensity of our experience of emotions. [As we mature, the actual emotions we feel change. And so our need to use blame to release overly intense emotions lessens.

For the past three weeks I have noticed when I overheard the word "blame", or when I was tempted to use it myself. And I've begun to wonder what would happen to American society if blame didn't exist. For starters, reality television would disappear. In particular, Donald Trump would be out of a job! And most of the plot lines in other television shows and movies would also cease to exist. Our society has woven the constant thread of blame into its daily expression and way of being. But I believe that blame is not meant to be an ongoing adult expression. It is meant to be learning tool.

Let's relate this to some current political and social changes. The cultures in North Africa and the Middle East are turning themselves inside out. The energy of blame is part of this too. If blame is the only emotion behind a revolution then no new and improved forms of governance will emerge. Blame makes us look backward at what caused us to be in a state of discomfort. But it will not help us see with our spiritual eyes where it is that our soul's journey will take us in the future. Only emotions of forgiveness, charity, and compassion can do that. The same is true for those protesting in the US or anywhere else.

So many members of our human family are in the throes of uncomfortable and challenging changes. Their emotions of fear and anger are suspended within the shared unconsciousness of all of Humanity. This is bringing these emotions front and center for all of us with human bodies.

When we as humans are dealing with world-wide situations that involve ongoing, long-term issues, it is very easy for our physical bodies to also feel the emotional patterns that are suspended within the shared consciousness of Humanity. And that means any and every physical body can potentially play a role in resolving our shared emotional patterns.

Here and now, there is an underlying tension within our bodies relating to uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the global financial reconstruction. Maybe there is a personal situation that has been on your mind as you have read this. Know that the tension of the situation can resolve from its current state of the blaming tri-tone into balance.

Expressing ongoing blame to someone or something outside of oneself gives your emotional energy away. This behavior keeps you from using this same emotional energy to move into resolution, and into the next expression of your soul's journey. We can each choose to live in the energy of blame. Or we can recognize it as an indicator of needful spiritual growth.

NOTE ON WEEKEND PRACTITIONER'S TRAINING - BRIGHTON, MICHIGAN JUNE 11-12

There have been many people inquiring about lodging possibilities, especially camping options. The lake home we are meeting in adjoins the Island Lake State Park. I have found a rustic cabin in the park within a short walk from where we are meeting that can accomodate everyone. There are no frills bunk beds with mattresses. I can arrange to supply towels and bed linens, blankets etc for those who are flying in. There is water from a pump, but no electricity or showers. You are welcome to charge your phones etc during the workshop hours at the lake house and swim there and at the state park. If you prefer hotels, there are several in town at about $100/day and they require a car or tramsportation arrangements. For those of you who want to search on your own, the house is located on Briggs Lake in Brighton, Michigan, zip code 48116. Please let me know if you want the cabin option. It will be about $50/person for 3 nights - Fri, Sat and Sun or less, depending on the number of nights and people. There may be some other options, such as staying with others who are also attending the workshop. If you live localy and would be able to host someone from out of town, please let me know.

Do the forms you are currently manifesting serve you? Does your life now reflect what your soul desires to manifest? What is the quality of ease that your soul wants your body to have in your life?

Manifestation is an energetic process within our throat or 5th chakra working in tandem with our navel chakra and knee chakras. The quality at which our skin rubs against our physical reality is largely determined by our soul.

Most of us have accidentally created much more friction in our lives than what our soul means for us to experience. With this meditation we help you find the quality of ease that your soul means for your body to have in your life now.

Sometimes it is our expectation that it will be difficult to release something that actually makes it difficult. Most of the time, the old is really uncomfortable, and we have simply grown used to the discomfort. The more we let go, the more ease we have in our lives.

Spiritual energetic waves are always coming towards us. But the new can't arrive until we have let go of the old. In the ocean of life, you can't surf two waves at once!

What if we were to shift healing and prayer away from the idea of needing help and giving help? What if we saw healing as being a situation where a person's soul and body are recognizing a potential for strengthening their connection? Together the soul and body have identified a weak link that they are ready to change. It is only the personality that is holding us back from moving easily along that path of change.




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

As of today, I have 28 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.

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.
