My work as a Reiki therapist often involves chronically ill clients who have “tried everything” in their search for wellness. There are certain recurring themes I see in these people. Often I must choose my words carefully in expressing my impressions to them. I know that their world view and my world view are very different.
HOUSE CALL is a parable to teach and reveal certain principles of healing in story form. The tale centers around a young mother, Angela Mattea, who struggles with chronic disease. Her greatest desire is to see her ten-year-old son, David, grow to manhood. Her downward spiral seems inevitable until a day when a very special therapist is sent from “the agency.”
HOUSE CALL: A STORY OF HOPE FOR THE CHRONICALLY ILL is now up at on my YouTube channel. It runs about 45 minutes. I invite you to listen and feel free to share it with someone who may need to hear it.

The Supernal Friends continue our journey into multi-dimensionality. Mine seems to be largely into the realm of healing energy. As far back as 1983 when I joined a Protestant church healing prayer ministry, my hands picked up the trail of energy “mapping” on prayer recipients. That same year a blissful encounter with Christ Consciousness in the quiet of my own home brought a prayer language phrase into my mind that has served me well. It’s a quiet mantra that allows me to turn off my monkey-mind and open to the healing energies.
After Reiki came in to my life in 2005, working with clients on a therapy table brought more refinement into the process. Somewhere around 2006, the Supernal Friends each received The Reconnection Attunement at a healing seminar with Dr. Eric Pearl. As Pearl lectured on the stage, one of his assistants weaved through the rows and gave a quick attunement over our hands as we sat in the chairs. (See post What Are Attunements?) It didn’t “feel” like anything. However, that night as I lay in bed settling down to sleep, my whole body began jolting with energy bursts. It wasn’t unpleasant or entirely uncontrollable, but it was definitely new. I also developed a strange clicking habit in the back of my throat. It took a few weeks for my body to get used to whatever new energy frequency was assimilating into my field, but eventually settled down. After that, through the years the energy jolts became routine whenever I attuned into new healing modalities. I’ve some times wondered if my “older model” body is a bit like a Model T car trying to run with a Tesla engine.
Anyway, the energy jumping is part of my new normal. In the last couple of years it has become a indicator of connection. Most of my work has become distant healing. When I’m working in that mode and the energy jolting kicks in, it generally is a sign of dimensional connection. The outcomes and information I’m receiving seems to be more authentic the stronger the energy strikes.
Sooo, this week something new happened. Of course, I’ve been spending more time in meditation and distant healing in the midst of this pandemic. The Lightworker troops are hard at work coming at this thing with all the high vibes we can muster. On Monday morning I sat in my prayer chair, getting into the vibrational flow. The energy strikes began, as usual. They range from high to low, involving my whole body, without any set rhythm. I generally hold some sort of imagery in my mind. If I’m focused on a single person or animal, their picture will come to mind. Often I’ll see internal physical workings–organs, blood, energetic systems. I’m assume that’s how most medical intuitives operate.
Sending energy for a pandemic is a whole new ball game. I took some wise advice and decided to simply seek tapping into the highest frequencies of love and healing. “Love conquers all” is very true from an energetic standpoint. Oh, have I mentioned I work with an Angel named Asaniel? (See post Of Orbs and Angels.)That’s been going on for a long time also. I can tell when she is around because of the pocket of cold atmosphere that usually comes to my right side. Interestingly, she can be in multiple places at the same time. During some Supernal Friends Skype sessions, we’ve each noted a cool presence to our right, even as we are in living rooms thousands of miles apart. But I digress. At this point I won’t venture into the mind-boggling realm of the space-time continuum.
Back to what happened on Monday. I’m praying, I’m bouncing with energy jolts, and the cool Angel Energy is strong. In the back of my mind, I begin “hearing” some sounds, vowels and tones, maybe a strange language. Hmmm. I decide to sing a tone and let the sounds flow. Pretty soon I’m caught in the waves of words and energy. The energy goes from being disorganized jolts to steady, full body vibration. The left-brain observer part of me finds this all quite fascinating. Chanting and energy is pouring out of me. I begin seeing images of Italian streets, the London streets, New York City, a veritable mental world tour. Up and down the frequency waves I ride, a strange language rising into my mind and manifesting across my vocal chords. My body vibrates, my heart and crown chakras wide open. It goes on for about 45 minutes before the energy peters out.
My first reaction was to Tell No One (except the Supernal Friends). It seemed Too Weird To Tell. But then, my inner guidance wouldn’t let me get away with that. In fact, I sensed I was supposed to record some sessions and make it available to the general public. Seriously? This presented technological challenges as my new-to-me MAC computer turned out to be too old to download the necessary software. Last fall my Toshiba laptop that contains the proper recording software completely flatlined. No amount of charging or fiddling with cords or buttons could spark it to life. It sat in a drawer for months. After a couple hours of frustration with the MAC, the thought came to get out the Toshiba and hit the start button. Boom, the dead computer lives! PC resurrection. So, now I had no excuse not to record the chanting, unless of course it was a one-time event.
Tuesday morning I set up the laptop and microphone before I began my regular mediation and prayer time. Once in the flow, the chanting and vibrating began. I captured about 18 minutes until my phone rang. On Wednesday I recorded another session. These are now up on YouTube. People can use them as meditation or healing tools. A lot of healing energy was flowing through me, so there may be a Transmission effect. I don’t know at this point what people may experience. I apologize for the background “cracking” noise, which was the Hawaii trade winds rattling my front door. If I can get cleaner recordings on a quieter day, I may do so, if I feel so led. Of course, the winds may have added energy to the power of the recordings.
So, there you have it, Supernal Adventurers, you can listen to the Supernal Vibrations and see what happens. I suspect they are encoded with healing energies, but only time will tell. Meditate or lay quietly as they wrap around you. Your feedback would be most welcome.
I will continue to join with Lightworkers around the globe to mitigate the negative impact of the virus. It’s definitely going to change the world as we have known it, but– hopefully, ultimately–for the better.

NEW! Experience an OPENING CHAKRAS WITH THE LORD’S PRAYER session with me on YouTube.
What’s the deal with chakras? For some people they are as tangible a part of their body as a hand or foot. For others they are a strange Eastern concept, as fanciful as fairies, vaguely having something to do with yoga. For many years I was in the second category, but along the way, as I came to understand more about energy and health, I set off in search of my chakras.
There are many helpful books on the subjects, but I’ll give you Cliff-notes version here. “Chakra” comes from the Sanskrit meaning “wheel, ” used in yoga to describe energy centers of the human body. Seven main chakras run from the groin to the top of the head. Colors, vibrational frequencies, and organ systems are associated with them in Eastern medicine. Balanced, clean chakras are necessary for optimal health. The chakras also serve as communication paths for connection to the Divine.
Many meditation techniques teach visualization methods for finding the chakras—focus on each center and send a ray of colored light up the body. One sleepless night a couple of decades ago, I didn’t have anything better to do than look for my chakras. I remember lying in bed, focusing on the base of my body (root chakra), picturing red color filling a spinning disc. Darned, if I didn’t actually feel an awareness. So I kept moving up. Here are the basic chakra centers and corresponding colors:
Sensing energy centers is part of my work as a Reiki therapist. One method to open chakras that is more Western-friendly, is using the Lord’s Prayer. Dana Williams’ The Lord’s Prayer, The Seven Chakras, The Twelve Life Paths covers a lot of territory, including astrology. Her segment on The Lord’s Prayer caught my attention. The technique is also mentioned in The Healing Spot by Jan Phillip Holland, Ph.D., M.Ht.
Lately, I’ve been opening my prayer/mediation times in this manner, using the Lord’s Prayer from the top chakra down to get the energy channels moving and connected to Spirit. Sit comfortably, eyes closed. To better feel the energy fields, lift one hand above your head about six inches, point your fingers toward the crown of your head and slowing circle. You may feel a slight light-headedness, perhaps a tingling sensation. Move your hand to the corresponding area of the body as you travel to each chakra center, continuing a gentle circular motion.
Our Father who art in heaven—white light above the head. Imagine a God finger of light entering the crown of your head, beaming a high frequency of healthy energy
Hallowed be thy name—purple light beaming into the forehead. Circle your hand a few inches in front of your forehead. Picture radiant amethyst light entering the forehead, stimulating the pineal gland and warming the brain, eyes, sinuses, and skull. This is where divine connection can enter the mind with heavenly thoughts. Quiet the mind and experience only the present moment.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done—blue light to the throat. Circle your hand before your throat, picturing an exquisite blue shaft of light beaming into the neck and mouth. This chakra represents our power of speech. We call things into being. Claim health and personal empowerment. Imagine the thyroid gland basking in the blue light, absorbing healing energies to regulate all the systems of the body.
On earth as it is in heaven—green light opens the heart. Circle the open palm over the heart, imagine emerald green light sending divine healing and love to the heart chakra. The heart connects with the Creator and loved ones with very real etheric bonds. Emotional wounds can impair the ability to open the heart chakra and lead to a sick physical heart. Imagine a green laser of light opening a healing portal in the chest. See healing light cleansing and strengthening the heart and lungs.
Give us this day our daily bread—yellow light feeds the stomach. Circle the palm in front of the stomach, imagine a sun yellow light sending spiritual nourishment. It’s here we feel hungry for physical food, but we can also feel an emotional ache in the pit of our stomachs. Healing yellow light feeds both the physical and emotional needs of the stomach and digestive organs.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.—orange light below the belly button. Circle an orange light, soothing the deepest regions of the gut and bowels. This is the area we store guilt and grievances. Unforgiveness of self and others creates deep-seated life-long illness. Lift old grudges and regrets to the orange light. Let them go. Ask for divine help to forgive and forget. Feel the healing frequency of orange light restore intestines and the vital organs of the digestive system.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil—red light to the sexual centers. Red is a highly stimulating light frequency. The area of sexual energy can generate the highest ecstatic connection for human love or the greatest depths of violence and fear. Use the red light to heal memories of sexual abuse or shame. Ask for a transformation of red light to symbolize love and creativity. It is the place of new birth. Radiate healing red light to regenerate reproductive organs.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever—run the energy into the earth down for grounding. Now imagine all the colored lights and energy swirling around and through the body. See white light entering the crown, down the body, and traveling through the feet into the ground, connecting heaven and earth.
Amen—And so it is. Feel the whole body light and filled with Source energy.

According to The Secret Language of Destiny book, I am on the Path of Articulation. If you are unfamiliar with this big tome, I highly recommend it. Based on astrology, it fits people to certain life paths according to when they were born. I’ve found it very useful in understanding the people in my life.
People on the Path of Articulation “are here to make a commitment to their unusual thinking or way of doing things by articulating it and bringing it to the attention of a broader audience.” Our core challenge is “overcoming the fear or rejection or humiliation.” Which I guess is one reason I found myself with New Age, mystical, healing urges living in the Bible Belt of Oklahoma for thirty years. I was learning how to Live My Truth, despite the culture around me.
Through the twists of fate, I now live in Hawaii, where I can relax into the spiritual diversity of the island. I’ve got the luxury of time, health, and energy to explore creative pursuits. I sing with a local chorus. I write their shows and my blogs and books. I explore the healing arts here and see occasional clients for Reiki energy treatments. Oh, yes, I go to the beach!
Lately, I’ve felt the spiritual nudge to build a Supernal Living presence on YouTube. People nowadays are listening more and reading less. I enjoy using my voice. I was a drama major, back in the day, after all. I’ve been told my voice has a pleasant, soothing cadence.
Anyway, the advice for writing a book used to be, “write the book you want to read.” So, I guess, now for me the advice translates to “record the meditations you want to hear.”
So, I have begun. Last evening, I meditated a while and got into the “zone” and then turned on the microphone to see what would come out. I felt healing energy flowing through me as recreated an experience very similar to giving someone a basic energy treatment. It seemed like I was also transmitting healing energy as it went along. Hopefully, listeners will feel it. I know I have been impressed with the energy that comes through the Steve Nobel transmissions. Perhaps, I can tap into some channels that connect through time and space. Now, that would be interesting.
At any rate, I am uploading popular posts from Supernal Living and will explore producing more meditations, picking up a theme I’ve developed on my Facebook page. I’ve posted pictures of rainbows, ocean scenes, and tropical settings of my life on Oahu and called them Aloha Moments. My Facebook friends seem to enjoy them. It feels right to expand Aloha Moments to YouTube.
If you have a half an hour to sit back and relax or perhaps, drift off to sleep, give this first mediation a listen. I hope you find it healing and refreshing.
Healing is an art, and an act of kindness….Dr. Gloria Martin
Last September I returned to Hawaii from the mainland suffering from the lingering effects of a toxic tick bite. My mind was foggy, my immune system compromised. I experienced a miserable week of rolling hives that barely responded to drugs prescribed by patronizing doctors. I was scheduled to perform with my woman’s chorus at an all weekend event and didn’t know how I would get through it.
I called my best Supernal friend, Sue, with my tale of woe. Sue said, “I’m getting the word that you need to go for acupuncture. They’re saying if you don’t go, you will really be in trouble.”
Maybe it was fate, maybe it was luck, but I called Hawaii Kai Acupuncture and Massage, near my home. After hearing my distress, the kind office manager, Danielle, rearranged appointments and worked me in for treatment with Dr. Gloria Martin, the next afternoon. I arrived at the office dressed to go onto a performance I doubted I’d be able to make, my energy was so low. I followed Danielle’s instructions, entered the exam room, disrobed, donned a sheet and lay on the table, ready for the doctor. Dr. Martin walked in and gave me her full attention. She listened to my theory of the toxic tick bite. I was impressed when she said, “Sometimes listening to the patient is the best information.”
After a moderate examination, she stared at the small blister on my stomach still visible from a two-month old tick bite. She said, “Yes, that is still a problem. I will get to work.”
Dr. Martin applied needles in multiple places on my body, as one would expect in acupuncture. She also aggressively treated the bite with needles, burning, and extraction. She turned me over and cupped my back. Head to toe, front to back, Dr. Martin worked on the energetic channels of my body to stimulate and balance my system.
After I left her office, I felt better than I had in weeks. I was able to perform for three long days. Dr. Martin’s treatment helped me get back to myself. I was so impressed. Generally, with allelopathic medicine you walk out of the office feeling as lousy as you went in, hoping that the drugs prescribed will kick in within a couple of days. You don’t expect the doctor visit to actually make you feel better. I discovered acupuncture could deliver immediate relief and enhance speedy healing.
I wanted to learn more. Dr. Martin agreed to meet with me to discuss her life, healing philosophy, and holistic practice.
FROM SPAIN TO HAWAII
Born in Spain, the tones of Dr. Gloria’s birth country still ring through her words. Her father managed a mine in the town of Leon. When Gloria was nearly five years old, he took a job in Germany. Soon, her mother joined him in Germany and enrolled Gloria in a convent school in Spain. She quickly became attached to a motherly nun and looks back on that period with fondness. Her first spiritual experiences occurred at the convent.
“It was so beautiful to be there. The nuns would sing like a chorus. I felt like I was in heaven with the angels. It was the first time I had quiet, mystic experiences. I was in the church one time. There was a statute of the child Jesus on one side of the church. It was like my friend. One time when I was looking at him and feeling a lot of love and attachment for him, there was a light that completely filled the entire altar and it continued growing and growing and everything was immersed in that light. The level of love increased as the light increased until I actually passed out and lost consciousness. It felt like such a gift.”
Dr. Martin and her family eventually moved to Barcelona, where she finished her basic schooling. At seventeen she followed her soul’s yearning, spending time meditating and trekking the summer through spiritual sites. She studied ancient philosophies and modern quantum physics. As winter approached, she returned to Barcelona, intending to stay with friends, but instead found her way to a Hare Krishna school, where she studied Eastern philosophies. By age twenty, she wanted to move to the United States to explore the opportunities of the American culture and economy. She was sponsored by a Hare Krishna ashram in West Virginia. Unfortunately, she found herself in a highly controlling atmosphere.
“I soon realized they had made a cult out of the philosophy. Oh my God, the leader was nuts. I was horrified and scared to death. He ended up in jail years later. I met a young man there who was a musician and we became good friends. We escaped that place together and later got married.”
They lived in Miami for a while and then moved to California, pursuing his career in the music industry. They had their first of four children and lived in Berkley where Gloria learned English and studied philosophy. By 1981, the California congestion and urban pressures compelled them to follow friends to Hawaii.
She discovered a school for acupuncture on Oahu run by a medical doctor who had observed traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) while serving in the military. Amazed by seeing surgeries performed without anesthetics, he studied TCM and brought acupuncture to western students. Gloria enrolled as a full time student, graduated at the top of her class, and immediately began practicing her healing arts. For several years she was the manager of a holistic clinic, working with a chiropractor and other practitioners.
Like many kindred spirits, Dr. Gloria felt a spiritual connection to the islands. The marriage ended after twelve years, but she established Hawaii as the home for herself and her children. She has been practicing her healing arts for over thirty-five years in Hawaii.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
I asked her to give me an overview of the basics of acupuncture.
“There is a body system that is the energy system, the “Chi” system. It runs in channels. It is subtle energy, but it is still physical. It can be measured by machines. The channels are like rivers of energy. They are all connected, but at the same time, they are separated as to specific functions. There is the Liver Channel, the Kidney Channel, the Heart Channel and so on. Each channel connects internally with the named organ.
Each channel carries the functions of the organs. We concentrate on the functions of the organ systems, rather than the physicality of the organ itself. We also look for patterns of disease. We look at the patterns and the malfunctions, the interconnections of the organs, and treat the patient accordingly, taking many factors into consideration.
We do it by manipulating the Chi that is running on the channels. There are approximately four hundred acupuncture points. Each point is like pressing a button that goes directly to the brain and also to the sympathetic nerves in the spinal cord. It causes a certain reaction in the body. It can immediately treat pain by stimulating the brain to produce natural pain relievers. It can stimulate hormones and all the many functions of the body, depending on which channels are being treated.”
THREE LEVELS OF ACUPUNCTURIST
Dr. Martin explained there are three different levels of Chinese medicine doctors:
The first doctor concentrates on the physical body and only that. It’s very mechanical. They place the needles, let them stay in place for a few minutes, then remove them.
The second level doctor considers the mental and emotional health of the patient, along with the physical. They are more observational and conversational with the patients. Treatment incorporates other modalities and herbal recommendations.
The third doctor incorporates the first two, but also adds spiritually intuitive guidance. These practitioners have studied ancient philosophies such as Taoism. They might consider generational influences that in the West we call DNA, among ideas like past life connections. It’s a much broader scope of understanding by the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states of the patient.
Dr. Gloria is one of the third level of doctors. She offers treatments, but she also advises life style changes. Healing of emotions may necessary to promote over-all healing. Each client is unique and receives specialized treatments and recommendations tailored especially for them.
