The Significance
of Calendar Dates
by Norma Gentile

Have you listened to Norma's recordings of Healing Chants?

Many people feel a uplifted or blessed on days with certain numbers associated with them. I do believe that numbers reflect qualities of ourselves in a sacred manner. Our personal consciousness can receive and agree to experiencing information coming through the shared collective consciousness or unconsciousness of humanity. In this way we can feel an upliftment on 'good' days (like 7/7/07 and dates with 7 and 11. Likewise, our individual consciousness can agree that certain days are 'bad' because of the numbers they contain. Remember, this is according to the Western Gregorian calendar system. The effect of 'good' and 'bad' dates is real, if we choose for it to be real.

I'll skip the long version and share this short version of our western calendar dates. Our modern calendar months and days actually are a system of months and numbers started during the time of Julius Caesar. It has been adjusted several times, the last adjustment I'm aware of was in late 1500's by Pope Gregory XIII. Other cultures have their own system of calendars. No doubt there are important numeric combinations which occur in their systems as well. Being an American, exposed to American culture, I am seldom informed of when the Jewish calendar hits a remarkable combination, or when the Chinese calendar arrives at any point besides New Year.

For better or worse, it appears that most of the world accepts the Gregorian calendar. Because so many people have a sense of its numbers passing through their consciousness, these numbers can have an impact upon us. It means something if we make it mean something. And if enough people want it to mean something, it can. Friday the 13th can feel weird and a bit off center in the US, while in Spain it is Tuesday the 13th which is considered 'bad'. Or days with 11 and 7 can be especially pleasant. We really do create our shared reality. So you can enjoy that many people are especially tuned into a sense of blessing and abundance on today, 7/7/07.

And the next time you feel down on a day with a 'bad' number, look to see what numbers that same day is associated with in the calendars of another culture, such as the Jewish, Muslim or Chinese calendars. Then look at the Mayan calendar, based the most closely on the natural planetary cycles of energy. You may be picking up a cosmic cycle, such as the ones the Mayan calendar illustrates. Or you may simply be listening to the shared subconscious ness of the Gregorian based world. You can continue to listen, or change the channel.

Exercise for Changing the Channel-

-Sit and tune to your inside feelings. What emotion is going on? Is your body heavy somewhere or feeling different front to back or side to side? Notice what you notice.

-Ask whatever emotions you notice, if they are really your emotions

-Ask whatever body sensations you notice, if they are really yours

Did anything change, even a little bit? Then that emotion or body sensation isn't all yours. Focus and ask again. Repeat, perhaps a few more times within an hour. Each time notice and validate to yourself whatever shift you notice. Be sure to stand up and walk around, so you can feel the changes you are making.
