The Year of Stillness – A Time of Dreams
Mary, through Norma Gentile.
As of Oct 28, 2011, the Mayan Calendar ceased to track the movements of our planet in the cosmos. While hype and media spin continue around the date December 21, 2012, most astrologers now believe that the calendar’s end point has been reached. For myself, I feel December 21, 2012 (give or take a few months) is the date upon which the longest cycle tracked by the Mayan Calendar resets itself and begins again. From now until then, we are in a “time of no time”.
In considering what this means to me, and how my life is impacted, I heard the phrase “Still Point” from one of my guides, Mary. And thoughts began to flow. Here is a summary of what she shared with me.
Or perhaps it is because we are deeply and exquisitely aware of ourselves and all that is around us that we choose differently, not with our minds, but with our soul and being. In any case, within these moments, which both the practitioner and client enters into, our life changes. We do not come out of this stillness with the same sensation of ourselves and our world.
Regardless of whether I am in the receiving mode when I enter into Still Point, or am functioning as the healer, the sense of my self and my world changes each time I pass through this process of deep stillness.
I wonder then, what will happen to our planet as we all pass through an entire year of Still Point? Together…
In order to take advantage of this incredible opportunity, we each have to be willing to let go of the amount of external doing and busy-ness that accompanies most of our lives. Being available to enter into Still Point means surrendering to the support that Spirit and Nature and all that surrounds us is already providing. Within this surrender is the opportunity to witness ourselves floating within the cosmic year of “time of no time”.
The experience of Still Point is ever deepening during this year. It is becoming and will continue to become more and more accessible to all of us in human form. And it is also more prominent within the consciousness of animals (who are supporting the human transitions in consciousness). Leave them be. Their meditations, even while sunbathing, serve all living consciousness.
With each entrance into our own vibration of Still Point, we may take advantage of the larger cosmic availability of this vibrational quality. And as we choose to enter into this deep stillness we also assist the quality of consciousness within this stillness to be more tangible to other people.
My love and blessings to all,
Attend a Meditation Concert without leaving your home!
You can now experience a Live Meditation Concert online. It was edited into four parts, and subtitles were added to offer additional insights. Click on the links below, or see Norma's entire youtube page at http://www.youtube.com/normagentile Videos thanks to Craig Harvey caharvey2007
Part 1 Opening to Spirit: talk and sound healing Norma shares thoughts and a related sound healing from Spirit (her Hathor guide Atamira).
Part 2 The Sacred Masculine Within Spoken information from Norma followed by an improvisatory song from Spirit invoking the Sacred Masculine from within each of us.
Part 3 Ubi Caritas Improvisation (Where there is Love) Improvisation has long been a way to allow Spirit to move effortlessly through us into the world. Whether it is in words (Marianne Williamson) or acting (Meryl Streep) we each have ways of opening ourselves to be channels for Spirit. Here is a song, drawn through me in the moment during a live Meditation Concert while I play schruti box.
Part 4 Improvisation and Kyrie by Hildegard of Bingen Norma sings an improvisation from Spirit accompanied by Tibetan Singing Bowls, followed by the setting of Kyrie Eleison (Creator, Draw Compassion from Us) composed by the abbess and mystic Hildegard of Bingen in the 12th century.
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.
Meditation CD #31 from November 11,,2011
*includes the sound healing "Caught by Spirit", similar to those on Norma's CD Songs of Spirit
Purchase as standard CD download or stream FREE mp3
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.

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.

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. email@example.com or 734-330-3997. Read more about private healing sessions here
