I Wish I Knew Then, What I Know Now

Book review by Dana Taylor

“Humanity is not a random accident. There is a reason we are here, and each one of us has a purpose in life that we have come to fulfill, a reason and a purpose which we planned prior to incarnating. We are much more than our physical body; we are eternal souls incarnated in a body.” Roser Sagarra

As I read Roser Sagarra’s book Living on Earth: A Guide to Help You Achieve Health, Happiness and Success, I pictured myself back around 1970. If only some time traveler had popped in and handed me this book, it would have saved me a whole lot of time and effort. The coming trends of the next decades would have been clear. The best books to read regarding spirituality, consciousness, the law of attraction, energy healing, alternative medicine, even pre-life planning and past life therapy are all laid out.

Sagarra compresses a lifetime of searching and exploration into a concise organization of the mind-body-spirit consciousness movement of the past several decades. She touches on spirituality, without being religious. Like many, she has embraced Eastern ideas of karma, reincarnation, and laws of creation and translates them for a Western culture.

Information on health and healing reflect the movement away from old thinking of the body as a machine into the awareness of the energetic nature of human beings. She gives a concise overview of the trends of alternative therapies and the influence of emotions and stress on health.

At the end of every chapter, Sagarra recommends books to expand comprehension of the topics discussed. Time and again, I realized I had gravitated to the same books through the years. Like Sagarra, those books and their ideas changed and enriched my life.

As the subtitle suggests, Living on Earth is a straightforward guide to leading a healthy, happy, and successful life in the 21st century.

Aboriginal Healing Secrets Revealed

Book Reviews by Dana Taylor

Gary Holz, D.Sc. (1950-2007), was an award-winning physicist and a psycho-neuro-immunologist. In 1994, confined to a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis, he went to Australia to stay with an Aboriginal tribe and experienced miraculous healing. Robbie Holz is a holistic health consultant dedicated to continuing the healing work of her late husband. She healed herself of hepatitis C and has also worked with Aboriginal healers in Australia.

I first became aware of Robbie Holz through an interview on the Open Minds show on Gaia TV. Ms. Holz spoke about her life with healer, Gary Holz, and the incredible journey they had both experienced with debilitating diseases. Intrigued by her interview, I purchased both books, Secrets of Aboriginal Healing: A Physicist’s Journey with a Remote Australian Tribe and Aboriginal Secrets of Awakening.

secretsThe first book, Secrets of Aboriginal Healing, is Gary’s story. His life as a scientist and successful businessman came to what appeared to be a tragic end when he developed multiple sclerosis. From the description:

In 1983 award-winning physicist Gary Holz was diagnosed with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. By 1988 he was a quadriplegic. Then, in 1994, his doctors told him he had two years to live. Desperate and depressed, he followed a synchronistic suggestion and went to Australia to live with a remote Aboriginal tribe. Arriving in a wheelchair, alone, with almost no feeling left from the neck down, Holz embarked on a remarkable healing transformation of body, mind, and spirit and discovered his own gift for healing others.

Written at the request of the Aboriginal healers Holz worked with, this book reveals the beliefs and principles of the 60,000-year-old healing system of the Aborigines of Australia, the world’s oldest continuous culture. Chronicling the step-by-step process that led to his miraculous recovery, he explains the role played by thought in the creation of health or disease and details the five essential steps in the Aboriginal healing process. He explores the use of dreamtime, spirit guides, and telepathy to discover and reprogram the subconscious motivations behind illness–a process that enacts healing at the cellular and the soul level, where the root of physical illness is found.

As I read Gary’s story, I wanted to pass it on to people I know dealing with chronic illness who don’t understand the connection between buried emotions, unforgiveness, and disease. Gary had to travel all the way to the Outback of Australia to recognize what had been hiding in his heart.

secretsawakeningAboriginal Secrets of Awakening is Robbie’s story. The title is a little misleading because the book is largely about her healing from hepatitis C and her love story with Gary. She does make a trip to Australia meeting with Indigenous healers, but that isn’t the heart of the story. Meeting Gary, loving Gary, losing Gary, carrying on for Gary is the essence of the book. While it doesn’t have the revelations of the first book, it still “tells the rest of the story.” It’s a testimony to healing and love.

Both of these books offer insights on healing that are rarely, if ever, discussed in a doctor’s office. They point the way to overcoming despair and powerlessness given a devastating diagnosis. Healing is a process of mind, body, and spirit.

If you or someone you know is dealing with a “hopeless” situation, offer these books. They may be the spark of light out of the darkness.     garyholz         Robbie Holz      Gary and Robbie Holz

Supernal Adventures 

Supernal AdventureIn 2005 my friend, Paula, experienced a “miracle” healing of an “incurable” disease, RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), through a Reiki therapist. RSD is an excruciating condition. It generally begins after an injury. The nervous system keeps sending the pain signals. First noted in the Civil War, surgeons performed amputations in an attempt to halt the pain. The result was “ghost pain.” Though the limbs were gone, the soldiers still felt the throbbing, unrelenting agony.


A fall on a stairway began a seven year descent into misery and disability for Paula. She was ultimately on 29 medications and had two battery devices installed into her back with lead wires attached to her spine to offer pain control. Her entire right side was involved. She often used a cane and occasionally a wheelchair. She became part of a control group of an RSD specialist at UCLA. In the summer of 2005 the doctor told her they were out of options and to prepare herself for a life confined to a wheelchair and ultimately a bed. She was 50 years old.

Given that grim future outlook, she and her sister, Sue, took my suggestion to visit me and schedule appointments with the wonderful Reiki therapist, Helen, I had recently met. At the very least, it would be a fun vacation for them.

Much to our amazement, after three Reiki sessions, Paula no longer suffered from RSD. Her healing opened up a whole new world for us. Paula, Sue, and I began exploring energy healing, quantum physics, alternative medicine, and meditation. Our weekly meditation sessions took on a mystical life of their own. We began calling ourselves the Supernal Friends.

Being a writer and observer, I took notes of what happened in our sessions. Over the course of time, I filled pages and pages of what I called the Supernal Journals. Now, a decade later, I’ve used those journals as the basis for my new book, Supernal Adventures: Exploring the New Normal of Multidimensional Living.

Join the Supernal Friends on their many adventures. You may discover the new normal of multidimensional living for yourself!

Trinfinity8, Healing’s Next Big Thing?

Purple-Fractal-T8-ShotAround 1990 I went to hear to a young Chinese herbalist and chemist, Tei Fu Chen, discuss Chinese herbs and Eastern healing philosophy. I got very excited and bought the basic products. My family thought I was crazy, but they tolerated me. Sunrider International is now a global multimillion dollar company. A few years later I attended a lecture by a guy named Gary Young about essential oils. Came home so excited. The family rolled their eyes. Mom’s latest crazy thing.

Today, my daughters are faithful users of Young Living Essential Oils, as are millions of people around the world. A couple of years ago my younger daughter said, “We should see what Mom is excited about and invest in it because in about 15 years the whole world will be buying it.”

51-kDXPoniL._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_Recently I happened upon the website www.Trinfinity8.com. The Trinfinity8 is an energy healing device developed by Kathy Forti, Ph.D. Seeking more information, I downloaded Forti’s book, Fractals of God: A Psychologist’s Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Mystical. My kind of book, right? Definitely! The book not only reveals the author’s personal spiritual experiences but also the path she traveled to develop a unique healing energy device named Trinfinity8.

In 2003 Forti was working as a successful psychologist. She’d had several mystical spiritual encounters, but she wasn’t highly psychic. Then one evening alone in her home she collapsed, entered a tunnel as many near-death experiencers report. When she regained consciousness, she was profoundly changed. She could hear new Guides–The Founders–and began a rigorous education of quantum physics, mathematics, algorithms and more. The Trinfinity8 device developed  from the collaboration of Forti and The Founders.

I know, I know. Pretty crazy, right? However, in the New Normal of multidimensional living, or Supernal Living, as I like to call it, receiving information from nonphysical sources is part of the new paradigm. 

The Trinfinity8 uses pure laboratory grown crystals to deliver digital data in vibrational wave form programmed by the user. Holistic healers, chiropractors, and alternative practitioners around the world are beginning to incorporate the device into their practices. 

As a Reiki practitioner, I see the amazing possibilities. In my world, healing is all about energy. The current reliance on chemistry is an outdated mode. Vibrational medicine is the cutting edge of tomorrow.

Is Trinfinity8 the next big thing? I don’t know. But, it is part of the next generation of healing, whether it’s this device or others coming onto the horizon. The current cost of the device is over $8,000, which makes it generally affordable only to professionals. However, you can get a taste of the Trinfinity8 experience through a phone app

Of course, when I discovered that, I had to download it. The app offers four protocols–“Energy Balance,” “I Feel Good,” “Boost Female Libido,” and “Boost Male Libido.” It involves listening to sound frequencies and watching a beautiful kaleidoscope of shapes and colors. I’ve been using the first two before mediation. I can definitely feel the energy pulse.

So the Trinfinity8 may be “Mom’s crazy new thing.” Or it just may be the future of healing.
