What is “Supernal Living?”


Dana Taylor ~ Award-winner author, Light Worker, Reiki Master, Spiritual Adventurer

“Supernal” is defined as “from on high: Heavenly.”

“Supernal Living” is developing a spiritual awareness for making a positive difference in our relationships, health, community, and our planet.

“Supernal Living” refers to incorporating the unseen dimensions of spirit and connection with familiar physical perceptions. This blog is actually an extension of Supernal Friends, a site started a couple years ago by myself and two friends, Sue and Paula. While I’ve led a very “God-conscious” life, winding a path through Christianity, spirituality, and healing, many elements came into focus beginning in 2005. My book, Ever-Flowing Streams, chronicles key events in my spiritual walk.The dramatic healing of Paula from an “incurable” disease through the gifted hands of a Reiki therapist, Helen (Ripples of Light), set the three of us on a new course.

Studying subjects such as quantum physics, integrative medicine, paranormal events, comparative religions and spirituality, our paradigm of “reality” is constantly expanding. We call it “Supernal Living.”

Beyond Your Wildest Dreams: A Meditation

My journaling appears to be taking on new dimensions. Thoughts seem to be coming through me, rather than from me. All part of the ever-evolving Supernal Adventure, I guess. Here is an entry from last May that I feel nudged to share today. Many blessings– Dana

Supernal Journal, May 3, 2015

Jesus said, I am the vine. You are the branches. No one come to the Father but by me. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

These words are still strong and true. They show the open door, the gate to heaven. They aren’t meant to keep people out, to exclude, but are a light shining the path to joy. So many are lost, wandering in the dark.

I shine a Light on the path to joy and the starlight luminescence of God. I gather my loved ones like a Good Shepherd. I want no one lost or afraid. Come to me and find the peace that goes beyond understanding.

I Am Love. Love is a state of Being, a high energy. An action. From that energy comes inspiration to work in love and kindness. I am All Inclusive. The portal is open. All may enter. A host of angels is waiting to greet you home. Peace I give you. Peace I leave you. Walk in my peace.

You conduit my Light into the planet. It radiates through and around you. In your words, in your actions, in your silence. You don’t need to “do.” You may simply “be.” Be like a tuning fork vibrating at my calibration. Carry my note, my tune, wherever you go.

Sing to the beauty of creation. Rejoice in it. Cherish it. Take good care of it. Love it. Look to the sky. Look up. See the dancing clouds, the wind, the rain, the blue sky, the birds on wing. They are part of the symphony of the earth.

It is beyond your wildest dreams, all the Love I have to share and want to give to my children, my flock. If only they will open their hearts, open their eyes, open their ears. I am calling. I am waiting. I am loving.

Happiness is always bittersweet, full of joy, remembering moments of sorrow. Choose to live in the Light.

Leaving Hormone Hell

Danaheadshot by Dana Taylor

angry-womanBeing a woman has never been easy. Historically dominated in a patriarchal society, women suffered multiple, unstoppable pregnancies, child birth, child bed fever, early death. All that laundry….

Life now is definitely better, generally speaking–in Western cultures–anyway. Personally, I’ve enjoyed freedom and choices as an American woman heretofore never known in recorded history. However, we gals still struggle with what I call Hormone Hell. Ups and downs, weight issues, irritation, depression, skin problems, fatigue, insomnia, hair loss, mysterious maladies. You know what I’m talking about. Hormone Hell.

At this point I’ve reached a certain age when I’ve experienced most of the stages in a woman’s life (except death). One thing I’ve learned is not to count on doctors and Big Pharma to solve all my health issues. PREMARIN (short for Pregnant Mare Urine) is still the go-to solution advertised for most female complaints, despite decades of revelations of connections to heart disease and cancer. Somehow ingesting horse piss (yes, that’s actually where it comes from) simply goes against common sense. Read an article about PREMARIN at Dr. Mercola for more information here.

So what’s a girl to do? Well knowledge is power. Read some books, open your mind to solutions. Follow your inner guidance. Learning about hormonal imbalances is a good place to start.

71LAJ6B0m2LThe winner of The Indie Spiritual Book Awards this year in the Alternative Medicine Category is Adrenaline Dominance: A Revolutionary Approach to Wellness by Michael Platt, MD.  Dr. Platt lays out a compelling argument for hormonal imbalances contributing to a wide range of illnesses–insomnia, chronic illness, mental instability and much more. From the description:

Adrenaline is a powerful hormone whose effects have been virtually ignored by the medical community. “Adrenaline Dominance” explains how this hormone might be a major underlying cause of many conditions currently considered incurable. This book explains why people produce this “fight-or-flight” hormone even when they are not facing danger. It presents a natural protocol for rapidly reducing excess adrenaline. In most cases, this protocol allows patients to reassess their need for taking prescription medications, which treat symptoms rather than address the root cause of their conditions.

This book brought to mind the now classic books from Dr. John Lee on estrogen dominance and the incredible toll hormones-gone-wrong take on a woman’s life.

These books largely focus on exploring PROGESTERONE levels as the missing link to balanced hormones.  From Natural Hormones.net

Progesterone is key in the normal function of the reproductive system, the regulation of a woman’s menstrual cycle, and a number of other systemic functions including skin, blood, and bone health. Read full article here

Another avenue of exploration is the rise of Bio-Identical hormone treatments, as touted by Suzanne Somers. This is an emerging field and has stirred its own pot of controversy. There are many books on the subject. An overview can be read at Natural Hormones.net here.

Natural Approach

Believing more in nature than laboratories, I explored supplements from whole food sources. Eating well is the first step to hormone balance–green, leafy and organic as much as possible. “When estrogen levels are high, progesterone levels will drop. Studies have shown that diets rich in foods that promote stable estrogen levels such as soy, apples, alfalfa, cherries, potatoes, rice, wheat, and yams go a long way toward regulating or preventing symptoms of progesterone imbalance. Avocados, nuts, seeds, and olives promote progesterone production.” (Natural Hormones.net)

Herbal Remedies


After my first hot flash, I visited my local health food store, which was run by a Korea-trained doctor. She did some muscle testing with various products on me and we chose Transitions from Pure Essence Labs. This blend of female-friendly herbs helped me sail through the often rough seas of perimenopause. I stayed on Transitions for a couple of years.

Progesterone Supplements

Progesterone creams became all the rage for a while. You can read an excellent article about them on How Stuff Works here. Sold as over-the-counter products from health and cosmetic companies, they make many promises for balance and health, but results vary from person to person. The ones I tried didn’t feel balanced. One of my favorite natural health providers claimed they were all too “hot.” Progesterone pills can also feel too powerful.

4640The product that has worked for me is the Progessence Plus Serum from Young Living Essential OilsProgessence™ Plus serum is a pure, harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women. Along with wild yam and vitamin E, Progessence Plus is formulated with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint essential oils for optimal results.

Just one drop over the thyroid after a shower several times a week has been key in keeping my hormones in balance, meaning I sleep well, have excellent energy, good moods and generally enjoy life.

In other words, I escaped Hormone Hell

Reducing stress, eating well, exercising and seeking the right supplements can be the path out of Hormone Hell. Be pro-active about your health. Educate yourself, take back your power, and life can be downright Heavenly.

Wishing you the best of health–

Dana Taylor:

On the occasion of the visit from Pope Francis, Ellis Nelson shared this apropos post. One the most powerful books from Wayne Dyer is There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, based on the famous St. Francis Prayer. He was definitely a man for the ages.

With Pope Francis visiting the US, it’s time again to reflect on his namesake. This is a reblogged post, so some might remember it.

St. Francis, 13th Century St. Francis, 13th Century

A couple of years ago I listened to one of those Great Courses lectures on St. Francis of Assisi. I patiently waited through all the talk about his early beginnings, his military experience, his illness, his rejection of society, and his eventual creation of a new order. Most of it was dry and rather matter-of-fact. Where was the meat? Where was the mystical Francis I’d heard about? Where were the stories, the hagiography, that made Francis one of the most loved and recognized saints of all time? I walked away from the lectures shaking my head in disappointment. It wasn’t until later that my reading caught up with the reality. I had been very naïve believing a history and art professor would…

Wayne D., Real Magic and Me

IMG_2098.2015-06-12_230817         IMG_2184.2015-06-15_202528

Summer closes; fall opens with a sigh. My summer was filled with activity, travel, children, and “real magic.” It began with a writer’s conference on Maui featuring the president of Hay House Publishing, Reid Tracy, and Dr. Wayne Dyer. I grappled several weeks about spending the big bucks to attend. After all, at this point I have no dreams of becoming the Next Big Hay House Author. Too much work building platforms and pursuing fame and fortune. Who needs it?

IMG_2121.2015-06-13_185945Yet, Spirit kept nudging go, go. True, I’d enjoyed a couple Wayne Dyer books. I admired his ability to make complicated esoteric ideas user-friendly for the common person.

Go..go. Fine. I made all the arrangements, put it all on the plastic, and got over the guilt. Maui, here I come!

The hotel was GORGEOUS. A waterfall in the open air lobby, complete with black swan and orange koi. An elegant room to myself, balcony view of volcanic hills and the golf course. Magical sunrises.

The “real magic” came in the form of Wayne Dyer. Seeing him in person for 48 hours as he chatted with Reid Tracy was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Dyer had been on the self-help, spirituality forefront for over forty years. Author of over 40 books, lecturer, talk show favorite. Despite all that “celebrity,” Dyer evolved into a man of wisdom, wit, and love. 

Though always gifted with charisma and a brilliant mind, Dyer struggled with anger and alcoholism. He shared the pivotal moment when he found the grave of the father who had deserted his family. The date was August 30, 1974. A spiritual epiphany settled on Dr. Wayne about the man who had fathered him and he experienced  profound forgiveness. It changed Everything.  Forty one years later, on August 30, 2015, Wayne Dyer slipped out of his corporeal body in the night, his earthly mission completed.

A group of us have bonded that attended the June workshop, now knit tighter with the realization we were among the last groups to experience Wayne Dyer on the planet.

His message continues through books, audio, and videos. I’m reading Real Magic, a book he claimed was largely channeled material. Hay House is currently offering a free viewing of the short film My Greatest Teacher, based on Wayne’s relationship with his father. His Hay House books are being offered at bargain prices.

I will remember a man who exuded Love. He recognized the sacred spirit in everyone he met. He hugged strangers, brought them home, kept pictures of their children. He reached a level of humanity few achieve, as most of us live in fear of others. We keep our shields up. Dr. Wayne had dropped all the shields. He showed us the possibilities of living an Awakened Life.


After that inspirational weekend, I’ve spent the summer enjoying everyday. Living in the Now with my friends and family. I had a grand weekend in Bainbridge Island, WA. Saw fantastic sunsets over Lake Michigan. I had no idea Michigan is such a beautiful state!

Settled into Missouri with my older daughter and her family. Six-year-old Will and three-year-old Gracie kept me hopping’ all summer. Dinosaurs, mine craft, Disney princesses, play dough, swim parties. And then there were my new animal friends– five outdoor cats, a family of raccoons, and the birds of prey circling overhead.

“Lessons from the Source” Inspire

Dana Taylor:

Jack Armstrong offers some of the best channeled material available. Uplift your spirit with the eternal messages he has received from Source.

Originally posted on Supernal Living with Dana Taylor:

Lessons from the Source: A Spiritual Guidebook for Navigating Life's JourneyLESSONS FROM THE SOURCE by Jack Armstrong is a book of inspired channeled messages that resonate with authenticity. I’ve been following Jack for a few years now and have been impressed with his humble, but wise manner. He offers his material without a heavy dose of ego bolstering. Jack is the Real Deal.

From the book description:

Thirty years ago, Jack Armstrong began receiving a series of simple and practical life lessons from an unknown inner source. While he did not understand where they were coming from or why they were being presented to him, it was clear the teachings were unlike any he had encountered during his own spiritual quest. He continued recording the lessons but kept them a secret from family and friends, fearing they might question his sanity. Years passed before he gathered the courage to share these writings, but when he did, the response was…

Okay, Spiritual Adventurers, hang onto your seats. My next posts will be “out of this world.” It’s tricky to share about subjects like channelling or ET encounters and maintain any kind of credibility. Yet, I’ve lately run into some information that touches those realms and I believe is worth sharing. I’m simply passing it along and you can decide whether it resonates as something of value for you.

91UTy-s2QGL._SL1500_Today I want to tell you about E.D.I.N.A: Energy Medicine from the Stars! Shamanism for the 21st Century and Beyond by Lois J. Wetzel, MFA.

I‘ve crossed cyber paths with Lois quite often in the past couple of years. I’ve reviewed her books on Akashic Records here (fascinating!). She is the founder of the TISBA Awards (The Indie Spiritual Book Awards). We’ve spoken on the phone. I am always impressed by her wisdom, humility, and…
