What is “Supernal Living?”


Dana Taylor ~ Award-winning 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. 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 a friend from an “incurable” disease through the gifted hands of a Reiki therapist, Helen (Ripples of Light), set us on a new course.

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

Confessions of a Medical Intuitive

by Dana Taylor

My first medical intuitive experience was around 1983. Drawn to the subject of healing, I’d joined a church that organized prayer teams for healing services. One evening before a service, my two prayer partners and I met to pray before the service began. As we stood with eyes closed and arms linked, a picture formed in my mind’s eye of three blood-filled, round lumps on someone’s back. I described what I saw, thinking perhaps someone we would be praying for later would have such a condition. My prayer partner, Jeanie, said, “I think that might be me.”

She turned around and allowed me to feel her back. Sure enough, three lumps lay along the spine. Wow, that was surprising. Even more astonishing was they disappeared after my other partner and I laid hands on and prayed over them.

energyOver the course of the next few years, I received a variety of such mental pictures–bones, veins, tumors, organs, fluids–often in color. In some cases, physical symptoms also mirrored in my body. They generally weren’t pleasant either–chest pains, leg aches, sadness, fear. In the depths of prayer, I often made statements that seemed to come from another source. Later, I barely remembered the messages.

Working in the church setting only took me so far. There weren’t many good explanations of what was going on, except “the power of the Holy Spirit.” I needed more answers than that, which led to metaphysics, Reiki, The Reconnection, Quantum Healing and a myriad of emerging modalities in energy healing.

Of course, the more I learned, the more I realized how little we know. But, I do understand that our existence is far more complicated than the physical eyes can see. Humans and all creatures are energetic beings. Machines can now take pictures of our energy bodies. The most well known device is the MRI machine. MRI is short for “Magnetic Resonance Imaging,” which maps the energy emitted in the human body at the atomic level.

Energy healers become human instruments for sensing and transmitting universal healing energy. Through training  and practice, I’ve learned how to open myself to unseen, but very real, frequencies in the auric field and beyond. The top of my head detects a physical opening–like a balloon expanding under my skull. I suspect the pineal gland actually swells.

Woman at reiki session. As my client lies on a massage table, I run my hands a few inches above the body, sensing the energy flow. When I reach a stressed area, I feel a buzzing in the palms of my hands. For example, once a new client came in and I purposely did not ask why she had come. I felt it was a “purer” first session, if I didn’t have preconceived ideas of what might be going on. In her case, my first scan soon focused on the neck and shoulders. They were nearly “screaming” into my hands. As I hovered over the area, a picture formed in my mind’s eye of the crooked alignment of her neck. The shoulder muscles were also pulled and distorted. I then switched gears and flowed healing energy through me and into the region. I later recommended she find a good massage therapist who could physically work the area. She was impressed with the session because her reason for seeing me was the aftermath of a car accident and the residual neck and shoulder pain.

The reason I’m writing this post is not to brag about what a great medical intuitive I am. The truth is I’m not all that great. I’ve now met amazing healers who are far more advanced than I. Rather, I want to encourage others to tap into the information and healing energy that is available to everyone. For millions of years electricity was everywhere, but it’s only been since the turn of the 20th century that Tesla and Edison figured out how to harness it. Now everyone in the civilized world can turn on the lights. Healing energy is basically the same.

As humans explore their multi-dimensional capabilities, they will learn how to tap into the vast resources of information and energy swirling around them every day. Learning ancient traditions like Tai Chi, yoga, and Qi Gong are good ways to discover flowing cosmic energy. In my case, serious study of healing prayer in Christian traditions led the way.

The first step to connecting with the Creative Source is simply the desire to do so. There are many avenues to try. Meditation, prayer, listening to music, communing in nature. Read some books on energy healing. As the saying goes, “Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door will be opened.”

Then, lay hands on yourself, pets, or family members, seeking help and information and see what happens. Picture healing energy flowing from the cosmos through your head and down your arms. You may discover your medical intuitive gifts. They are a beautiful package waiting to be opened. Untie the bows and give them a try.

Supernal Living with Dana Taylor

FREE on Amazon Kindle October 10-14

Dana Review by Dana Taylor

Australian spiritual author, Janice Hunneybell, has collaborated with the spirit of singer, John Denver, on two of the best channeled books I have read. THINGS THAT I BELIEVE IN and ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE are inspirational guideposts to wise living. Sure, I can hear the skeptics scoffing–John Denver?  “Rocky Mountain High.”  She was high on something, alright. All I can say is, read with an open mind. The voice of the material certainly sounds like it could come from John Denver, especially THINGS THAT I BELIEVE IN. Interestingly, there seemed to be less “voice” in ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE and Jan addresses that in her ending words about the writing experience. Yet, the wisdom is all there.

The truth is, the source of the material hardly matters, because the spiritual insights are so…

The Science of Reincarnation

Ellis Nelson reviews a fascinating book drawing quantum physics and mysticism closer.


Physics of the Soul: The Quantum Book of Living, Dying, Reincarnation, and Immortality by Amit Goswami, PhD


So judging from the title you know this is going to be a tough book. Intriguing- yes, but not a walk in the park. Amit Goswami is a theoretical quantum physicist and in the book he attempts to reconcile the science and metaphysics of reincarnation and immortality. Essentially he outlines a science for reincarnation and some kinds of paranormal phenomena. The structure of the book follows the ponderings of a scientist as he develops his theory. Although this is personal, I often lost track of the details as he set forth on one track only to reverse himself later. As a reader (without a PhD in physics), I’d rather have the bare bones of the theory without the intricacies of why he went one direction or another. No one should attempt this book…

Don’t Let The Taker Win


book review by Dana Taylor

Visionary fiction is on the rise–books that blend storytelling with elements of spirituality, not bound by the box of a particular religion. Though established faiths may be presented in these works, the authors are not restricted by dogmas. Creativity flows. These authors are finding their way. Writing of esoteric matters is tricky. It can become preachy, incomprehensible, weird or just plain boring. Incorporating it into a piece of fiction requires a crafty writer who understands how to weave the visionary into a plot line that keeps moving along.

The Anesthesia Game by Rea Nolan Martin successfully blends storytelling, character development, and visionary elements. Each chapter is told from a point of view of one of the main four characters, Sydney, Mitsy, Hannah, or Pandora. Teenage Sydney is the center of the story, gravely ill, but refusing to give into The Taker. Her mother, Mitsy, is becoming a living ghost, overwhelmed by her daughter’s illness. Her narcissistic Aunt Hannah is shamed into coming to help take care of the pair of them. Overseeing all this human angst, is the psychic, Pandora, Mitsy’s phone mentor.

Each character is focused, in their way, on Sydney overcoming her illness. In the process, they must face their personal foibles. The visionary elements begin a slow simmer through Pandora’s character. As the pace of the story picks up, so grows the heat of the multidimensional aspects. Reincarnation, astral projection, dreams, auras, the battle of light vs. darkness. Martin does an excellent job of weaving it all together in the midst of contemporary characters.

By using the various points of view, we get into the heads of all the main characters and come to care  about all of them. There are enough twists to keep turning the page to see what happens next until the big climatic ending.

If you’re tired of the same old genres and rehashed plot lines, give visionary fiction a chance. As more of us live beyond 3-D realities, visionary writing will find a wider audience. The Anesthesia Game by Rea Nolan Martin is an excellent place to start your visionary fiction experience.

Rainbow Children Will Color Our World

I recently ran across an interesting Facebook post from Reiki Master Kat Gray, regarding “Rainbow Children.” That was a new term to me. Kat has given me permission to use the information she compiled to share here.

flv9In the 1970’s we started hearing about Indigo Children, so named by a certain unusual purple hue in their aura noticed by people who can spot such things. Highly intelligent, out-of-the-box thinkers, they’ve had their trials adjusting to society, but are changing the world. (Pretty sure Steve Jobs was one of those!) Then in the 1990’s the Crystal Children began arriving. Also known as the Star Children, these souls are gentle and often allergic to chemicals and foods. Known for their large eyes, they are soulful, sensitive, and often psychic.

indigo-crystal-and-rainbow-childrenNow come the Rainbow Children. As the name implies, the Rainbow Children come to earth with a wider spectrum of ray color in their auric field. They are born on the ninth dimension of consciousness, the dimension of collective consciousness.
 The Rainbow Children bring joy and harmony to their families. Unlike the Indigo and Crystal Children, the Rainbow Child is born to smile, which is accompanied by their huge hearts that are full of forgiveness.
The Rainbow Child generally recovers from the state of negative emotion quickly. This is also an important key that they hold emotional mastery.

Rainbow children are psychic and have the ability to read people’s feelings. This gift is usually revealed as they grow older.
 Beyond this, they have strong wills and strong personalities.  They are known to be natural healers and instant manifesters. It is said that whatever they need or desire, they can instantly manifest.

As would be expected, they have a connection to color. In fact, they resonate with the colors around them. They are drawn to color, colorful surroundings and brightly colored clothes. Their energy is expressed in other ways too, as they are high-energy children. Their enthusiasm is demonstrated in their creativity. The Rainbow Children are thought to be the builders of the New World, using Divine will.

Astonishingly, the Rainbow Children come with no karma. Rainbow Children will enjoy the life on earth learning with absolutely no strings attached to their past. This is because they do not really continue from any previous cycle of reincarnation. They will also be less prone to allergies and bad reactions to chemicals than the Star Children.
 The Rainbow Child is very hyperactive. They can run the whole night and really tire you out. This is a problem that parents of Rainbow Children might face.

Rainbow Children tend to:
• Have very strong wills and personalities.
• Be very high energy.
• Be very attuned to color and color vibrations around them.
• Have passionate creativity
• Love bright clothing and colorful environments.
• Bubble over with enthusiasm for everything in life.
• Expect instant manifestation of whatever they think/need.
• Have healing abilities.
• Have telepathy.

A Message from a Rainbow Parent ~

My daughter, who is two, is very much a Rainbow Child. The word passionate does not even begin to describe her personality. She enters the world every day with a powerful energy, exerting her will and creativity into everything she does. While her older Crystal brother is laid back and patient, she is charging forward with her voice on extra loud volume, doing this, doing that, she hardly ever stops to sit down for a moment or two. She even eats on the run, taking little bites here and there in between jumping on the trampoline or running by with a doll stroller at full speed.

She LOVES clothes and COLOR, and will spend a lot of time changing clothes every day. Her clothes have to be clean and neat, or she removes them and chooses new ones, throwing the soiled ones at me and exclaiming loudly, “Wash them, mama, thank you!”

She will also spend a lot of time picking through the crayons, and selecting every hue of her favorite colors: pink and purple and then drawing with those hues.
 She seems very sensitive and attuned to color for a two-year-old. She even describes things in her life by what color they are as in pink sparkle shoes, pretty purple shirt, my yellow cup, baby’s blue cup and so on. She names colors all day long and if she discovers a new color she does not know a name for, like a hue of another color, she will ask me, “what’s this?” and I better answer RIGHT AWAY, because if I am on the phone or at the computer and do not immediately stop what I am doing to address her needs, she will shake my arm and her voice will repeat, “What’s THIS, WHHHATTTTS TTTTHHHIIISSS?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Until I answer. Then she says quietly, “Oh,” and runs off to play with her new color discovery.

We have not seen the same psychic abilities as her older brother has, but she has her own gifts. Healing seems to be one of them. She is very aware of other peoples owies and is always ready to kiss them to make them better. 
Her strong will and passionate creativity make her very fun to watch as she scampers about. She will create elaborate costumes out of feather boas and velvet fabrics and talk or hum to herself as she acts out her little world. She is a true joy to be around most of the time, as long as I make sure she gets my full attention if she needs something.

Patience does not seem to be a very big Rainbow Child quality.
 Rainbow Children are already attuned to the world we are moving towards, when things will instantly manifest. Humanity as a whole is not there yet, so the mass consciousness grid holds back instant manifestation from being commonplace. A toddler has a hard time understanding that. They feel if they think juice, well then juice ought to naturally appear instantly. In higher dimensions this may be true, and it will be true here on Earth as well, thanks to the Rainbow kids making it so.


Be on the look out for these special children. Welcome and enjoy them. They are the hope for a better planet earth.

Bright blessings,

Dana Taylor
