Don't Rush It!
Recognize and Utilize your Creative Cycles
an essay, two healing songs and
livestream of a Meditation Concert this Saturday 8pm EDT

Dear Friends,
This month we are entering yet another series of challenging energies. On April 15 comes the first of a series of lunar eclipses meant to turn our focus upon our own lives. It is so much easier to see the faults and poor choices others make! The intensity of these eclipses places spiritual blinders on us, so that we must turn inward, away from the doings of others, and ask questions about our own priorities and choices.

Below is an essay that explores this issue within the context of Creative Spiritual Cycles. You may also want to join me in person (or via a LiveStream on the web) this Saturday, April 12 at 8pm EDT for a Candlelight Meditation Concert in the Gothic style Holy Rosary Chapel in Adrian, Michigan.
More Info Here The two healing songs below are from a similar concert. The URL for the LiveStream will be sent in a separate email within a few days.

Don't Rush It
Recognize and Utilize your Creative Cycles

Don't you love the elation you experience after completing a major event in your life? Finishing a big work project, participating in a sports event, preparing and teaching a workshop…all of these are the manifestation, or physical phase of the creative process. Whether or not you deemed the outcome successful, you still created this event using a specific system of creation. Consciously understanding how this system works lets us manifest more easily, often with results that are closer to what we desire, using the cycles of creation within both Spirit and Nature.

This essay came through in response to a very successful client voicing the desire to adjust her career path but not knowing what that adjustment would be. Despite receiving the 'fame and fortune' she had dreamed of, she just was not happy doing what she was doing. As I reflected on her situation, I realized many of my clients were in the same situation.

Dissatisfaction with anything in our life indicates that we are ready for change. People who are highly creative and self-aware are excellent at noticing small discomforts in their lives. These discomforts may not register at a conscious level, but may be felt as kinesthetic body sensations or perceived as heaviness, static or a general sense of uneasiness. Internally we may feel something is 'off', and at some point we realize a lessening of passion and joy.

In my experience, this is your psychic radar sensing an impending change. There are spiritual energies afoot to bring something new into your life. This change comes about as a result of the spiritual shifts you are making. As you learn more about the Cycle of Spiritual Creation, you will engage differently with each phase of the process.

Here is a basic idea of the Cycle of Spiritual Creation:

Water symbolizes our own unconscious and our collective unconsciousness with all that surrounds us. A drop of your soul, your essence, lies within this greater ocean of unconsciousness. I sense this ocean within the First Dimension of our reality. I refer to this ocean as The Pure Energy of Nature. All potential - events, beings, stars and planets, indeed, all that we know of in our Universe - has a drop of its essence here, within The Pure Energy of Nature. The combined drops of all that exists within our Universe, and of all creative potential, make up The Pure Energy of Nature. Whatever our soul wants to create begins here, within this ocean of potentiality.

When our soul desires to manifest something into our lives, a drop of the essence of that manifestation is placed within The Pure Energy of Nature. Much like homeopathy, in which a substance is percussed (altered in vibration by precise motions applied to it), the drop of our desire undergoes spiritual percussing. This is the longest of the five cycles within Spiritual Creation. A drop can be charged and left here as potential for many years, or even many lifetimes, before all that is needed for it to fully mature as a manifestation is in place.

Trying to consciously influence this phase with mental images or repetitive verbal phrases is like telling the Earth that for today your will is greater than the will of the rest of the Universe, and that therefore, the planet should change its cosmic course. Within this phase of Creation, we do not yet know the specific form that is manifesting, nor does our soul. All potentiality and all possibilities exist here simultaneously. This is indeed pure potential.

Air is a symbol for Spirit. In this case, Spirit refers to those spiritual beings of Nature who inhabit the dimension directly beneath our Third Dimension. In the Air phase of creation, the essential drop of potential that we carefully placed into The Pure Energy of Nature rises to the surface of the First Dimensional ocean. It floats upon the ocean's surface and begins interacting with the Nature Spirits, Nature Intelligences and other elementals within the Second Dimension.

These spirits provide the blueprint for our physical form. They are the energetic carpenters, general contractors, and maintenance workers for all that comes into form. I use Machaelle Small Wright's terms of "Nature Spirits" and "Nature Intelligences," but others might use Faeries, Nymphs, etc. Here in the Second Dimension are those spiritual beings of Nature that literally keep the walls of your room solid, let the stars shine as stars, and tell electricity how to be electricity.

As our drop of our desire moves through this Creative Cycle of Air, it moves more and more into our awareness. Spirit is able to caress it, interact with it. Those beings within the Second Dimension look upon this drop of potential and advise beings in other dimensions how it might be constructed in the Third Dimension, into physical form. As humans, we begin to sense the rising drop, or movement of our soul's creation. What is going on here? We sense that something is different.

Sometimes we begin to apply our co-creative spiritual tools, such as asking our angels and guides for help. This is all part of the Air phase of manifestation coming into form. Keep in mind that humanity is at the very beginning of its journey back into co-creative consciousness. There is much for us to learn!

Of course, as we are learning how to create, we sometimes stumble. It is at this point, during the end of the Creative Cycle of Air, where we are most likely to get in the way of what our soul has planned for us.

We feel the potential for something to happen. Ideally, we allow it to fully develop within the wisdom of the Nature Spirits, Nature Intelligences and other beings who dwell within the Second Dimension. But too often we become impatient and try to push it into form. Instant gratification is a hallmark of the human experience! But following the Spiritual Cycles of Creation is a spiritual lesson - in patience. Don't force the form to come yet. Let it arrive on its own schedule. Similar to a bowel movement, this process is best not rushed. It will arrive naturally in its own time.

Too often we think that what we are creating exists just for us in our own life. But whatever we create will also impact others. When we wait for something to manifest at the right time, then the other people or things that need to be present will come into place. We are never creating alone. That new job, getting your book published, creating your rock band or buying the house you love…all are dependent on others being in the right place at the right time too.

The most common reason for us to not be able to manifest something we deeply desire is that we are not waiting patiently for the others involved in that creation. We may feel that we are ready, but perhaps others have not yet taken their place so that they can play their parts. 'When the student is ready the teacher will appear.' In order to sustain any creation in form, those who will support it must also be in place. Sometimes, even though you believe you are ready, you must wait for the Teacher to appear.

As a symbol for physical form, Earth is the most easily recognizable portion of the Cycles of Spiritual Creation. After your soul's drop of potential has spent long periods of time gestating in Water and Air, it is birthed into form. The quality of this birth tends to be related to your Spiritual awareness and attentiveness. There can be great joy in this birth, but remember that sometimes our soul also chooses to create sorrow as a means of deepening its experience of itself.

While you have long wanted to see your desire manifest, it may sometimes seem to arrive suddenly - so suddenly that you don't believe it is really yours, or really the right time. As our Third Dimension becomes less separated from the other dimensions, energetic patterns can move more quickly and easily into physical form. So, too, can our manifestations move back out of form, back into another dimension, if those other people and supportive aspects for our creative impulse have not had a chance to properly situate themselves.

We are very good at honoring the focus, time and attention it takes to bring something into form. We all know we have to study to pass an exam. We acknowledge that we have to practice in order to play a musical instrument well. But we as a culture are awful at recognizing the importance of the last two cycles of Spiritual Creation: Releasing and Blessing.

This is important even at the very mundane level: Releasing the guides and angels that helped us find that parking space, or releasing the guides and angels that supported us during that presentation at work. Releasing the angels and guides after singing a song at karaoke night or performing a concert. Releasing those energetic presences that are holding something in form. This is the Fire aspect of creation.

One can release the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences holding the walls, floors, etc. of a house in form before beginning demolition or construction. This allows its physical form to more easily change. Calling upon the Nature Spirits and Nature Intelligences that relate to the new structure likewise assists in its construction.

Releasing anything out of form frees the energies that created it and actively supported it. The Nature Spirits, Intelligences of Nature, and Devas that maintain form desire to move back into spiritual energies once their job is completed. Fire does not just consume physical form - it releases what is associated with it into its own dimension of vibration. This release feeds the spiritual energies of each person or being associated with maintaining the physical form.

When we allow the Fire aspect of creation, then all those energies and beings associated with the now-released form are available to move into a new Creative Cycle. The energetic essence of the form can be placed back into The Pure Energy of Nature, our shared ocean of potential.

Water is potential
Air is spirit
Earth is form
Fire is transmutation

Fire is a symbol for the process of transmutation that must occur in order for anything to pass between dimensions, or move from one quality of vibration into another quality of vibration. Fire is also a symbol for the Great Void, the space that exists between our 3rd dimension and that of the heavenly or upper dimensions. Energetic patterns that exist within The Void and the upper dimensions vibrate a little faster than equivalent energetic patterns in our Third Dimension of physical form.

One example of the activity within the Fire portion of the cycle is how we the cooking of food. When the atoms of a substance speed up, they become hot (imagine putting food in a microwave). Add enough energy to a plate of food, and it releases its watery contents as steam. Continue the process, and the remaining solids blacken and become ash. The ash can be placed in a garden to return its elements to the soil as it naturally composts. This is the completion of the Fire cycle. The action of composting, wherein ash breaks down, returning its elements to nourish the soil, is indicative of it moving into Ether.

If you throw a party or lead a workshop, the Fire phase of the cycle involves cleaning up. Putting chairs away, placing recycled plates and plastic bottles in bins, washing dishes, and returning borrowed items are part of this. As you undertake these actions, you are also unwinding the physical patterns of the gathering. Chairs and tables being put away also release those beings who were present during the gathering. You are signaling to them, and to anyone who has not yet headed for home, that the event is now ended. The Earth phase of the event has come to a conclusion.

Writing a book or painting a picture is similar. At some point the book must go to the editor for the last time, and the picture must be hung on the wall. Letting a creation move into the Fire phase can be intensely difficult if we are unsatisfied with what we have created. Believing that it isn't 'good enough' or that we can 'do better' keeps us from completing our creative process. But it is the impetus we receive from releasing each thing that actually brings the impulse to manifest our next creation. It is today's compost that brings nourishment to next year's garden. So, too, what we release as "complete" frees us to move forward.

As we release a creation from physical form, the energies contained within it traverse the Great Void, and arrive into the phase of Ether. In this metaphor, the movement of physical form is symbolized by Fire. Its arrival in the upper dimensions is its entrance into Ether. Ether is a symbol for the commonly thought of realm of Heaven.

The energies of our creations do not dwell inertly in Heaven. Rather they exist there, ready and eager to be drawn upon again when our guides and angels help our soul decide to create something more. The heavenly energies of previous manifestations serve to create and nourish the next essential drop of desire that our soul places within The Pure Energy of Nature of the First Dimension.

And a new cycle of creation begins.

At some point during my Meditation Concerts I feel an intensity in the room that I know needs to be addressed in a unique manner. I believe that this intensity is comprised of, and results from, emotions, human beliefs, and angels or guides who have completed their tasks with those present in the room and are ready to depart. Because these energetic patterns and beings desire to move on, they express through the physical bodies of those present in the concert out into the space of the room. Each person has reached a point where their body and soul are ready to release past-time guides, angels who are no longer needful, out-grown beliefs, and emotions. As these energetic patterns ease out of those listening, they fill the space of the room. The intensity builds until all those energies that can be transmuted are positioned appropriately.

Private Coaching or Healing Sessions (midtown west Manhattan)
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. Attending the workshop and/or concert helps to loosen up the energies from your aura before the session, so please plan to attend if you can prior to your individual healing time.

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

As of today, I have 39 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.
