Dear Friends,

A quick note about current energies that are rocking and buffeting us around. My friend, astrologer Mark Dodich, posted in FaceBook that "a solar flare the size of Jupiter…has already sent energy out hitting Asia and Australia, so tune in energetically the next several days to see if it rattles your personal energy field."

Well, it did! This was the piece of information I was waiting for, so that I could organize recent insights that my guides, Archangel Michael and Mary, have shared with me. Here they are, presented in the original channeled format.

When Your Inner Child Becomes a King

Insights on Empowering Your Sacred Masculine

Archangel Michael
You, representing the consciousness of humanity, are clearing ancient patterns relating to obedience and authority. To clarify: each human, animal and anything within your world of form contains both male and female essences. All of your visible world is created upon the principle of polarity, thus it is so. Your soul is both masculine and feminine. The spiritual interaction now and through the next several years is between yourselves symbolized right now by Jupiter, the obedient son who is readying to become king, and the Sun, symbolizing the observable and external masculine figures you have created in your culture and lives.

The Sun is an embodiment of your Sacred Masculine qualities. However, at the present time the physical solar sun allows itself to be cloaked by your own consciousness. It is functioning as a mirror for what humanity believes the qualities of masculine ought to be.

But that is changing!

As humanity is readying to embrace the Sacred Masculine rather than its profane brother, the day-to-day 'power over others' masculine, the sun itself, as well as all the planets of your solar system (and regions of solar systems throughout your galaxy) are also changing. These celestial orbs are unburdening themselves of the cloak of the profane and arising into a rebirth that reflects elements of your original 'star-seed' creation. That is to say, the vibrations of Sacredness from which all of your visible world was originally brought into physicality are stepping forward more tangibly. And that which does not vibrate or find resonance with this original Sacred tone is jarring to hear and experience.

Note from Norma
I am being asked to share a memory that just popped into my mind: As a child I often spent hours onboard my parent's sailboat. Not often, but sometimes storms came up suddenly in the afternoon, and I would watch as the waves hit not just the boat but also struck and hit each other. The energy of the forward motion of the waves was nullified when they struck up against each other. However, these were the waves that were the highest, and also created the deepest troughs into which the boat would fall. This sort of sailing upon rough seas is happening to us all right now.

Archangel Michael
Consider this: All that humanity has created, from emotions to beliefs to physical forms, exist as waves. All that humanity has created during a very long game of 'free-will' and 'polarity consciousness' are contained within a vast sea as a multitude of different waves. Likewise, the original tone or tones of Creation exist as a series of organized pulsating waves.

As the energetic waves of the original Sacred Tone increase in volume, they are striking up against the waves created by humanity's prolonged exploration of consciousness. Long ago, in order to achieve this new polarized free-will consciousness, humanity, and all that exists within your galaxy, needed to release its ability to hear Spirit.

And consciousness within this galaxy was successful! Something new happened as a part of the Creative Experiment. The energies that humans know as emotions flourished. Humanity's ability to generate waves of emotion that impact the entire galaxy became the focus of the cosmic experiment. The intensity and density of this emotional energy has created a new type of chaos, and possibility, for All of Creation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a song (and spoken meditation) from a recent Gathering that focuses on helping you find your own soul's energy deep within the Earth. To say it will help you ground is overly simplistic, but yes, it will help you feel more grounded. In a larger frame of reference the spoken meditation and song assists you in releasing inhibitions and blocks around accessing the power and psychic intelligence that your body is meant to have. When we are connected to our Earth Soul as much as we are connected to our Heavenly Soul something different happens in our lives. Are you ready?

Grounding into your Earth Soul
- a song and meditation channeled from Archangel Michael

Full Meditation (7:30 mins)
Just the song (2:30 mins)

This month's healing song ties directly into the energies of change we are experiencing. Just as we often find comfort in the known, we often project a sense of impending discomfort around the unknown. Certainly we are all traipsing into a new field of consciousness now. Whether it expresses itself as one of politics, health, finances or intimate relationships, our new consciousness is revealing changes in our world.

No matter the area of our life in which issues related to intense change appear, we can make the impending transition smoother and arrive more easily by gracefully relinquishing our conscious (and unconscious) hold on what must now pass away.  Here are some additional insights and a healing song to help you do just that.

(also published in the Huffington Post and Kindred Spirit (UK)
American politics isn't about American politics. It's about the patterns behind our daily choices, the outdated beliefs we don't realize we still follow, and the shared conscious connections we have with our friends and family. Right now, American politics is putting on display what our culture is ready to look at. It is showing us what Americans need to make a choice about. We may choose to continue certain behaviors, or we may choose to change certain behaviors. But even the choice to continue certain behaviors will be made in a conscious manner because the American candidates and the 'circus of it all' is bringing these choices to our attention. 

We are choosing between two distinct ways of living life. These two choices can be summed up as questions:

     1. Is this what we really want? 

     2. Is this what we are willing to tolerate? 

Our choice may well define American society for the next several decades.  

That old adage of choosing the 'devil you know' rather than the 'devil you don't know' is at play here. What appears to be the 'devil we don't know' only looks devilish because we don't know it. As people living in a quickly changing world, our tendency is to choose the discomfort we know, rather than chance a greater discomfort within the unknown. Of course, this keeps us in a constant state of discomfort!

But with this election we have the ability to make a choice, and to choose something new for ourselves. I think that we keep forgetting that if we choose something new, and it is uncomfortable, we can always make another choice. Restaurants hate it when we send food back, but it happens. We are allowed a do-over in other areas of our lives too.

But we tend to fear trying something new. Our tendency is to assume that if we choose something new, (i.e. the devil we don't know), that it will be worse than our current circumstances (the devil we do know). Our fear of the unknown creates a belief that there will be pain in the unknown. Therefore we will not change. We fear the potential pain that we assume lies within the unknown more than we fear the known pain.

Politics isn't about choosing a candidate. It is about each person making their own internal choice. Do you choose to tolerate the devil you know in your life? Or do you choose to answer the question 'What it is that you really want?' When we each answer that question honestly, I believe that our politicians will have to answer it as well.

Dear Friends,

When I first began my spiritual journey, I began with the assumption that my Soul was perfect, and therefore lived outside of my body. It lived in Heaven. Heaven was then still defined in my world as some golden city floating in the clouds…more or less…but something that certainly did not exist or have anything to do with living here on Earth.

Maybe it was just my community that focused on the aspect of wealth in its image of Heaven, but I decided as a young child that if the streets of Heaven were paved in gold, then I didn't want to have anything to do with it. No trees? No grass? No dogs to play with? Clearly, I was not yet indoctrinated into the ways of the suburban upper middle class! But my discomfort with my community's definition of Heaven encouraged me to search for my own definition. For me, Heaven is the expression of Life upon the Earth. From plants and trees and lush green moss to wild lions roaming the plains and tabby cats curled up in the afternoon sun…each is an example of Life, expressing itself as Heaven on Earth.

As soon as I realized that Heaven is a quality of living which we each may create, my spiritual questioning gaze fell upon my concept of Earth. If being in Heaven is so desired that (according to my Christian upbringing) we must die in order to arrive there, what does that say about Earth? Clearly (again, according to my Christian upbringing) Earth is second best. Not that great of a place to be, compared to Heaven.

No wonder I could not conceive of my Soul as having any connection to Earth! My Soul was perfect, and therefore would not deign to reside in the Earth, only in Heaven. And so my belief remained that I had a Heavenly Soul, but not an Earthly Soul.

Until I met my prejudiced belief about Earth head-on.

Was it shattered in one moment? Probably not. Or at least I don't recall it that way. There were a series of small moments over a few years. These took the forms of conversations and overheard comments with shaman friends. There were personal experiences during my meditation time, or while teaching and channeling, or singing. I found myself connecting to Nature energies in many different cities and countries as I welcomed their participation in healing endeavors. No matter where I was, I found myself consciously connecting and conversing with Nature Spirits in every workshop space, church, hotel room and even a few airports.

I found the same loving acceptance of my queries to Nature's Intelligence about the relationship between Heaven and Earth as one might feel from a patient (but sometimes weary) teacher. "Earth is Heaven. Heaven is Earth. You (humans) are separating them into two things. They exist together, not apart. One does not choose between them. Your needing to choose is the illusion you have built. Nature does not live in polarity as humans do. Nature reflects polarity only because Nature expresses the consciousness of humanity. As humanity arrives at a point in consciousness that is outside of polarity, so too will Nature express itself in non-polarized physicality."

Simply put, we create our reality. Nature acts as the translator between ourselves and our physical world. For example, are you thinking about painting a room a new color? You are (consciously or unconsciously) consulting the Nature Spirits and Intelligence of the room for their suggestions. Whether or not you follow their suggestion (that odd color that just caught your eye might be fun) is up to you.

Below is a song (and spoken meditation) from a recent Gathering that focuses on helping you find your own soul's energy deep within the Earth. To say it will help you ground is overly simplistic, but yes, it will help you feel more grounded. In a larger frame of reference the spoken meditation and song assists you in releasing inhibitions and blocks around accessing the power and psychic intelligence that your body is meant to have. When we are connected to our Earth Soul as much as we are connected to our Heavenly Soul something different happens in our lives. Are you ready?
