Reflection
How our outer world helps us heal our inner world
with a related healing song/video and
upcoming Weekend for Healers

Dear Friends,

I have long believed that world events reflect issues that we, within our shared human consciousness, have agreed to address. Healing entails noticing the obvious. We cannot change or heal what is not already seen and understood.  Just as you donít put a bandage on a wound that you donít know exists, we cannot emotionally or spiritually heal what we donít see and understand. For this reason what is brought up into our human consciousness is usually a reflection of what we, individually and as a society, have decided to learn about, change and heal.

Having a publicly visible event (such as the recent weather patterns) or an individual person stand as an example of what is ready to change helps bring the energetic patterns behind the related issue into view. When someone or something stands at the forefront of our shared human attention, the pattern that they represent becomes much easier to see.  In the western world we are healing narcissism and the many related behaviors (such as anger, violence and fear) that our American society has embraced as normal.  Remember, we can only heal what we see and understand.  What better way to do that than by placing people who demonstrate our wounds, and reflect what we need to heal, in public prominence?

HOW THIS WORKS
Perhaps because of the recent floods my guides were giving me ideas of how we heal issues using the metaphor of rain. In my experience one needs rain in order for a rainbow to become visible.  The water droplets that light moves through in order to create a rainbow are already hanging in the air, but must be intensified in order to be seen clearly by our human eyes.  So too events in the larger world may serve to intensify and bring our personal inner issues more clearly up and into our awareness.  That is what I believe is now happening within the arena of American politics.  Anger, greed, fear and all the other bedfellows of narcissism are creating a huge storm. And this emotional storm is being brought into the physical world as well.  Emotions that are not expressed by humans eventually do affect the physical land.

What many of us are realizing is that reacting with anger, or even seemingly justifiable indignation, merely feeds the emotional energies of the political storm.  How can each of us let the raindrops fall without covering our heads out of fear or anxiously batting away at the raindrops? By remembering that for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And w
e are in charge of our individual reaction! Fear, violence and hatred are only useful to those wielding them if there is someone who will respond. For those on a journey of reflection it is possible to consider what a neutral response might be. I imagine this in two ways.

First as a tennis game. When I feel a ball of anger coming towards me, I simply don't return the ball. Angry words don't need to be responded to with more angry words. Rather, I imagine the words or action as being a tennis ball that has been hit over the net into my side of the court. In my mind's eye I imagine placing the ball of anger in the center of the tennis court at the net. Whatever of my own thoughts or emotions that have been stirred up by receiving the angry tennis ball are mine to understand, and release. Placing the ball in a neutral position in my mindís eye helps me remember not to react to the external person and to come to a neutral quiet place within.

A second way I have of deflating anger, violence and the related actions comes from my years of experience as an energy healer. My guides remind me that our soul chooses issues to address in each lifetime, and has already found people (other souls) that have agreed to help those issues arise in us. Sometimes these people are family members, but they can also be public figures like politicians. It is for the benefit of all humans that a soul agrees to publicly reflect a pattern that is ready to be healed in the shared consciousness of humanity. Souls that choose to publicly reflect compassion and love are easily blessed and usually have bountiful lives.  On the other hand, those souls who choose to reflect the uglier aspects that we need to heal, are seldom thanked for their service to humanity.

Public figures reflect the issues that our souls want to address. They are the mirrors of our culture. It is uncomfortable for us to see the wounds they so publicly display because these are also our personal wounds.   The western world is clearly seeing our culturally accepted anger, violence, hatred and fear being reflected back to us in daily news stories.  Rather than turn away or ignore what is pleading to come into view through the political and social media arenas, we can use this opportunity. First, we find our own still quiet place within. Then we can bring compassion to the mirror and forgive both ourselves and those public figures who are so brilliantly displaying the issues that humanity must first see, in order to heal.

Compassion allows our eyes to see the rainbow that is present, along with the raindrops.

O Eterne Deus
O eternal God
- a medieval chant composed by St. Hildegard of Bingen

Stepping beyond the polarity of 'right and wrong' is often done through the sensation of Gratitude. As you see polarized extremes externally, those that are internal and personal to you are revealed to you. We each have the opportunity to express gratitude, and in return receive the grace of healing those aspects of polarity, which we experience as judgments, that we carry within ourselves. My guides remind me that when we judge ourselves or another, we are in polarity. Only when we can witness something and experience grace and compassion are we free from judgment, and therefore existing outside of polarity.



This song is from Norma's newly released album

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

As of today, I have 47 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 a few times each year. About half contain healing songs or chants. All are offered freely as podcasts (you can subscribe directly on iTunes > Podcasts > Norma Gentile) or a few are availble as 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 90,000 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.
