Sound Healings --------Sacred Songs and Chants




August 2013
O Creation of God (O factura Dei) -a healing song improvised with voice and Tibetan Singing Bowl 



Click Here for Audio Only


While playing a large monastic Tibetan Singing Bowl, I found myself awash in uncompleted energies despite having just completed all that I had planed to sing for a concert. As I continued to play the bowl into the silence of the room, I knew that another song needed to be sung in order to escort the remaining energies homeward. This is that song.

A digital photo (in the video version) shows a unique blue energy emanating from the floor near my feet. As I sang I welcomed the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences of the room and the land beneath to be present at what they consider to be their level of unconditional love. Perhaps the camera saw this. For those wondering, no electric lighting is used in this video, only the living light of candles.

O factura Dei (O Creation of God)

O creation of God which is human,
in the greatest of sacredness you were brought forth
when in humility, sacred divinity penetrated the heavens.
O what great compassion
allows divine brilliance in earthly mire
So that those angels ministering with God
might see God in humanity.


The poetry is by
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179).

Recorded during a live Meditation Concert at Ann Arbor's Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth on June 22, 2013.

Norma's formal training in music (BM, MM, University of Michigan, Voice Performance) combined with her studies in esoteric healing have helped Norma understand how sound affects our ability to heal, and influenced her exploration of chant as a modality of healing. Her concert performances and recordings are unique experiences of this integration of sacred sound and sacred healing. Norma's website offers sound clips, podcasts, articles, and a monthly e-newsletter. Her latest recording, Songs of Spirit, is now available at iTunes, Amazon.com and her website: www.HealingChants.com
