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.”

Reiki via Skype. Does it work?

th[8]Energy healing is an ongoing theme in my life. It’s part of what I do, who I am, but I have no professional aspirations in that regard. Yet, Spirit nudges me forward. Sometimes it shoves me. A couple of years ago I suddenly had strangers coming over to my house for Reiki treatments, all started by a casual conversation with a new friend.

I was reluctant to charge money for fear absolutely nothing would happen. Much to my amazement Healing Happened. Each session was different. Energy flowed for physical, emotional, and even past life healings. At the very least, my clients enjoyed a quiet, refreshing session to realign their energetic pathways. My confidence as an energy worker grew.  Now, I’ve moved to another state where I know practically no one. I still pray and send energy everyday, but at the moment, I have no local clients, which is fine.  Spirit has nudged again. This time into the realm of working “non-local.” In the last two weeks, I have had two sessions via Skype for Reiki I attunements. (See my post on Attunements for more information about them.) Reiki_SymbolOnce again, I had my doubts. It’s one thing to work on a client under my hands and feel their energy auric field. Could we do such a thing simply seeing each other on a computer screen. Could I pass on the Reiki frequencies? Seemed like a worthy Supernal Adventure, so we gave it a go. We started out the sessions with discussion and meditations. I felt myself head into the “zone” of flowing energy. Then I performed the attunements, visualizing the sacred symbols, and moving my hands as if the students were seated before me. Did it “work?” Attunements are difficult to gauge. I haven’t heard back from the first person, who is dealing with serious health issues. The second person is exploring her own healing capabilities. Here is what she reported the day after the attunement.

Whatever it was, I do believe it worked!
 
I did Reiki on my husband last night and felt much more energy in my hands. It was almost distracting! I had my hands over his eyes (not touching) and kept thinking I was bumping his nose, but when I looked down, my hands weren’t touching any part of his face, but the energy made me think I was. I didn’t get much feedback from him because he fell asleep, almost instantly. At one point, when I was over his heart chakra, he took a huge breath, after breathing steadily during the session.
 
I felt a lot of white light energy coming in to me to the point that, my crown started prickling and I had the urge to reach up and scratch it. Glad I didn’t because it then started spinning like a propeller! I’ve never experienced anything like that.
 
I did Reiki on my dog this morning and also felt much more vibration. I had my right hand on her leg where she has a fatty tumor, but my left hand was vibrating so much, I ended up putting that one on her neck.
 
So, I do believe the attunement was very successful! 
The traditional idea of praying has always tapped into “nonlocal,” but our knowledge of quantum realities is expanding. As people develop their abilities to tap into the higher frequencies, they will change the world. (Hopefully in a good way!)
This adventure of exploring multidimensional living goes on and on.
Have a great day!

Jellyfish Facts For Your Next Tropical Vacation

th-1   Since my move to Hawaii two months ago, I’ve been learning about island living. Discovering new culinary experiences–sushi and sea asparagus. Gazing across the aqua warm waters, whales surface blow misty spray. Kayakers, snorkelers, and surfers enjoy a liquid  playground. 

Of course, there are risks when frolicking in nature. A local newspaper article about jellyfish featured useful information for anyone planning a tropical vacation. If you or a member of your party got stung by jellyfish, what would you do? 

thAbout Jellyfish: The box jelly and man-o-war jellyfish are the most commonly found species around Hawaii.  The box jelly sting is 10,000 more damaging than a bee sting. The venom acts more like snake bite and causes cellular destruction. It is extremely painful. An encounter can cause serious systemic reactions that go far beyond irritating the site of contact.

Encounters are most likely the week after a full moon at dawn and dusk. Experts estimate possibly 10,000 stings a year around the Hawaiian islands.

Do’s and Don’ts of Treatment:

  • Don’t douse in cold water. That only spreads the venom and continues cellular damage.
  • Don’t use ice packs, alcohol, or spray-on pain relievers like Dermoplast. All will increase the action of stinging cells.

Best Actions:

  • Immediate immersion in hot water. Action of cell invasion by the venom is halted.
  • Flood contact site with vinegar or epsom-salt water to remove tentacles and rinse undischarged venom.
  • Emergency workers can start an epsom-salt start IV drip to greatly reduce pain.

How about that episode from Friends? Remember when Rachel is stung by a jellyfish and the guys administer first aid her by urinating on her? Actually, that is a recommended action. The acidic quality of the urine will counteract the venom. If the “delivery system” is immediate, the temperature should be about 98.6F to quell the venom action.

Beach Bag Essentials:

If you don’t want to be like Rachel, adding a small container of vinegar in your beach bag along with the obligatory sunscreen, is probably your best first line of defense after a jellyfish encounter.

Of course, don’t get in the water if there is any activity in the area. Though strangely beautiful, a jellyfish sting will surely ruin a wonderful tropical vacation.

Be smart, be safe. Have a wonderful time in the tropics!

Aloha!

Follow Your Intuition–Or Suffer the Consequences

1780761_10153136639645917_6528801728490333912_nToday on Facebook someone asked “how did following your intuition give you something amazing?” I had a few stories to share. Truth is, I have so many, you’d doubt my sanity. (Oh wait, you already do.) Nowadays I make most decisions by following intuition before logic. More right brain than left brain. Generally, I try to get both sides in agreement. I lead with the right side for everything from finding prime parking spots to my recent location of an apartment in Hawaii. I’ve learned the hard way that ignoring my intuition gets me into trouble. For instance: th copyDon’t eat that! Several years ago at a church potluck I hesitated scooping someone’s crab salad onto my plate. “Something” told me not to eat it. Why not? It looked perfectly delicious. And it was very tasty. The next morning I awakened with hives under my arms. What’s this?, I thought. The crab salad. I itched and felt generally lousy for the next five days as the rash spread slowly up and down my body. Shellfish and I evidently do not get along. I tried a little clam chowder a few years back and broke out across my chest. Sorry, Red Lobster, I’m heading to Chili’s. th-1Don’t go! My once-a-month writing club was meeting. I didn’t want to miss it. Yet, I kept sensing I should not go. My right brain and left brain had quite the argument. Left brain produced a compelling list of good reasons to go–educational, networking, good weather, getting out of the house! Right brain could say nothing more than don’t go. So, I went. Or at least, tried. As I was zipping down the freeway, a chunk of concrete smashed into my back tire. It completely shredded. I sat on the side of the road and watched a tow truck drive the car off to a shop. My daughter picked me up. After the tire was replaced, my stubborn left brain insisted on trying to get into the meeting an hour late. I sped to the office complex only to discover the building was locked. I banged on the doors and could not get in. I have no idea what went on at that meeting, but, clearly it was not in my best interest to be there.

Supernal Lesson: following intuition taps into a broader information stream than the logical left brain possesses. Learn to listen to your intuition. It makes life a lot easier.

“How 3-D of You”–Kryon Speaks

“Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service.”

81RmJbn47uL._SL1500_I must confess. I have entered my “Kryon stage.” The work of Lee Carroll and his other-worldly partner, Kryon, is not new. In fact, Carroll has been channelling an entity known as Kryon since the late 1980’s. I’ve been aware of them for a long time and even read some very early works. They made their biggest splash, so far, with coining the term “Indigo Children” circa 1998.

I’m a little late to the game starting with book number 13, The Recalibration of Humanity, but there is no clock where Kryon exists, so maybe I’m right on time. As synchronicity would have it, my Supernal Friend, Sue, and I had been discussing all the fuss over the 2012 Shift and wondered if it was a fad that had simply fizzled, or if something had, indeed, shifted. Then, the latest Kryon book popped onto my Kindle screen, addressing that very subject. Where is humanity now in the great cosmic scheme?

According to Kryon, (and many others, like Gregg Braden in Fractal Time), we are in the process of passing from one cosmic age to another as we travel the huge spiral of the Milky Way. New energies and frequencies are entering our plane of existence. There is a “Recalibration” transpiring in human beings and the Earth itself, aka “Gaia.”

Lee Carroll

Lee Carroll

The material comes from channelled sessions during 2012-2013 and compiled by Carroll. It covers areas of quantum physics, human nature, metaphysics, spirituality and beyond. It’s my meat and potatoes. I love this stuff, even when I don’t totally “get” it; somewhere in my soul it resonates.

At the heart of the Kryon material there is hope for the future and love for the human race. It is Light Worker 101 training for “The New Normal,” where the connection to multidimensional living is taken for granted.

Skeptical? Check out the Kryon material for yourself. Listen to the channelled sessions for free. You’ll find a refreshing lack of money-grubbing. The concepts and ideas shared may bend your mind and stir your soul. Visit Kryon.com and enjoy and take a peek at multidimensional living. You may never go back to 3-D!

And that is our Supernal Adventure for the day….

Blessings,

Energy Medicine From The Stars Revealed

Danaheadshot Book Review by Dana Taylor

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 courage to reveal her experiences to the world. She mentioned in passing that EDINA is her best seller and I finally had time to read it on a plane ride across the country.

In writing about EDINA and making it freely available to anyone in the world, Lois again displays an amazing generosity. We appear to be crossing into an age when communication between realms is becoming more common. Lois is an example of someone with beyond-the-usual abilities to communicate with other entities. In the case of her EDINA experience, in 1998 while working with Reiki energy, she realized other multidimensional Light Beings were present. They were tall and blue-grey. Over the course of time they would be identified as The Ankenash, who have their origins from the planet Sirius B. Working with Lois over the course of many years, they have established an energy healing system. Lois is the voice of The Ankenash in these incipient years of development.

EDINA: Energy Medicine from the Stars offers the background of Lois’ involvement and then the fundamentals of using the technique. While this probably sounds quite strange to many, as an energy healer and praying person like myself, the presence of multi-dimensional beings and working with them is a way of life. In Christian circles, we comfortably call upon Jesus, angels, and the Holy Spirit.

Thousands of Reiki practitioners are working across the globe, often in hospitals. And what is Reiki energy, but a transmission from another dimension? Usui Sensei received the Reiki energy and symbols while on a spiritual mountain retreat. They are passed on through a series of attunements and symbols.

EDINA is similar. Lois provides step by step instructions for accessing the EDINA energy and working with the Ankenash, provides links to the sacred geometric symbols, and has even recorded a meditation to center the student for the initiation process.

This resonated with me for a couple of reasons. First, the identification of the “tall blue-grey Light Beings.” For several years I have sensed the presence of a similar being during healing sessions. I just thought of it as my Blue Angel. But, it sure bears a striking resemblance to Lois’ descriptions of the Ankenash. Secondly, I’ve received impressions that I would be working with sacred geometry. When I downloaded the initiation  symbols, they intrigued me. Were these what I have been waiting for?

My Supernal Friend, Sue, joined me in this adventure. As “luck” would have it, I was staying at her house and we could initiate each other. We printed out the symbols and taped them up around the room. We followed the instructions, which were very similar to Reiki attunements. The symbols fascinate me. Though drawn on simple graph paper with pencil, they can appear to move and gain dimension when stared at for a few minutes. I’m sure an artist rendering could really make them striking.

What happened after the initiations? Any ET encounters? No. However, the common physical after effects of an attunement were definitely felt. Cleansing and fatigue for a couple of days as our bodies adjusted to the new vibrations. I haven’t been working with clients lately, since I just moved to a new state. Time will tell if there are enhanced effects in the healing sessions. My long distance healing sessions seem to be more focused, informative and powerful.

EDINA is in its early stages. The core group of healers are being developed. Lois is doing her best to impart information and develop a system that is viable for practitioners across the globe.

As the saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. For some, it may start with purchasing a copy of E.D.I.N.A: Energy Healing from the Stars!

And that is our Supernal Adventure for the day….
