Middle of the night stillness made me feel alone in the universe that night of 1982. I sat in my Oklahoma City living room rocking my fretful five-month-old baby, Cary, through another night of ear infection restlessness. We were caught in a cycle, rounds of antibiotic pink medicine. Seemingly better, then flared up infection again. Cary and I were both very weary of her illness.
I’d recently joined a healing prayer group at my church, a whole new concept to someone pretty much attending church to make friends rather than following religious fervor. Agnes Sanford’s classic book,The Healing Light, had been on the recommended reading list. Dealing with a chronically sick baby is incentive for reading about healing and anything to solve the problem. So, I dove into The Healing Light.
Agnes Sanford was a major figure of the Christian Charismatic movement of the middle 20th century. Raised in China by missionary parents, she picked up Eastern ideas of spiritual forces. Later, as the wife of an Episcopal minister, she witnessed the power of healing prayer. Her blended ideas, observations, and experiences became the basis of The Healing Light.
Sanford contended that healing energy is available to everyone. People simply have to learn how to turn it on. She likened it to a light bulb. If the bulb is in its socket, a power source needs to be flipped on to make it shine. Begging and wishing doesn’t turn it on. You can plead, “Please, bulb, please turn on.” Nothing will happen. But, connected to its energy source, the light beams.
She described the Healing Light and how to “turn it on.” It was on that dark night, long ago, I first connected with the Healing Light. As I rocked Cary in the dim living room, I imagined a shaft of divine energy opening up over my head. I prayed for help. I prayed for connection. My hands cupped over her ears and I imagined light rippling from the heavens, into my head and down my arms. The chair rocked and rocked and rocked. My head warmed and buzzed. Energy traveled through my body. That night only my right hand warmed and pulsed. Waves of energy rose in a crescendo and slowly faded. The baby fell limp in my arms and finally surrendered to sleep. I continued rocking a while, knowing something profound had just happened.
Indeed, the next visit to the pediatrician revealed her right ear was completely healed, the left improved. The cycle of infections was over.
That was the beginning of life-long supernal adventures in healing energy. Many modalities have followed, including Reiki and The Reconnection. But, it was Agnes Sanford andThe Healing Light that formed the foundation of my life in healing.
The Healing Light Meditation is my latest offering on YouTube to put others in touch with healing energy for themselves. Turn on the light and shine!
A close friend of mine, Thom, lost his long-time partner, Wayne, three months ago. Wayne’s passing was not a really a shock. He was 79 years old and in frail health. As parting experiences go, Thom and Wayne were a more fortunate couple than many. They had spent months in seclusion avoiding Covid-19 in their lovely island home. Over the summer, Wayne had been strong enough to nurture his beloved vegetable garden. Thom posted pictures of Wayne’s impressive heirloom tomatoes for Facebook friends to see. One fateful fall morning, Thom got up early to head downstairs to make their coffee and let Jake, their dog, outside for a while. When he returned to their bedroom, he found Wayne collapsed and unconscious from a stroke.
For Thom, the day tilted into a surreal jumble of ambulances, medivac helicopters, phone calls to Wayne’s children, doctor updates and a dash to the hospital. By seven o’clock that evening, Thom and the family circled the hospital bed and said goodbye as Wayne took his last breath. In many ways, it was a beautiful passing. A gentle passing. For Thom, it was the beginning of the unavoidable journey through grief.
Power of Prayer Beyond Death
We’re living in an era of death and grieving. As a spiritually aware person and energy healer, I consider praying for the departed and their families an extension of the healing work I do. I firmly believe death is not an end but a transformation from physical to non-physical. It’s a birth. And I’ve been in enough birthing rooms to know it’s not an easy process. Certainly life outside the womb is a big adjustment for a newborn. I suspect there’s a corresponding birthing process to other dimensions that is equally taxing and sometimes traumatic. (See my postConversations with the Afterlife.)
The classic books by Dr. Michael Newton, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, give us a glimpse of life-between-lives through hypnosis sessions with his patients. It appears the afterlife is far more complicated than a gentle reunion with loved ones or meeting an angel and dwelling forever in clouds and playing a harp. Our consciousness moves into other dimensions and often requires healing after traumatic passings or difficult lives. Even people who led fairly happy lives go through pangs of separation.
Healing prayers from those of us on the earthly plane aid in the transitional process. Prayers project power and frequency into other dimensions as surely as they do in our familiar three dimensional reality. My Supernal Friend, Sue, has a practice of praying for departed souls for a year after their transition. She asks for divine helpers to aid their adjustment and bring them peace for their grieving process of the life they left behind. Her efforts have been validated in messages from the other side through mediums. My husband, David, once came through unexpectedly to thank her for her prayers. His gratitude surprised us, because they’d shared an uneasy relationship on this side of the veil.
Healing for the Bereaved
Healing energy for people going through the very real wounds of grief is entirely appropriate. Humans truly bond at an energetic level. We create cords of attachment. Death severs those cords as surely as cutting off an arm. The term “broken heart” is literal. Deep grief can trigger a myriad of physical problems. (See articlePhysical Symptoms of Grief.)
Six months after my husband’s death, the grief hit me. A sadness I couldn’t ignore or simply talk away. I was fortunate to have a network of energy healers to help me through. Reiki treatments and massages from a gifted energy healer helped me rise out of the depths of my despair. David and I were granted one lucid dream encounter to say goodbye. (SeeGrace Through Grief: Six Months After My Husband’s Passing)
In this age of massive Covid deaths, helping people through grief is crucial. Reaching out to our friends and family with prayers, presents, cards and more is something we should all be doing.
The veil between this life and the next is becoming thinner all the time. Netflix has a new series entitled SURVIVING DEATH that explores the various avenues of afterlife communication. Interviews with mediums, ghost hunters,and reincarnation experts all raise tantalizing questions about life after death. For people suffering the worst throes of grief, it’s comforting to think their loved one still exists at some level. But there is no denying the loss of the physical presence. The departed are sorely missed. (WatchSURVIVING DEATH TRAILER)
Grief hit Thom hard. He lost thirty pounds the first six weeks. His normally ebullient personality couldn’t overcome the sadness. But, he is working through it with the help of a network of friends. The outpouring of flowers, gifts, phone calls and messages helped. Jake, their Australian shepherd, has been a comforting companion and faithful walking partner. Wayne’s grandsons visited to clean the garden and chop wood for the fireplace. Thom knows many people love him and wish him well. He will always miss Wayne, but in a million memories and otherworldly moments of awareness, he knows at some level, Wayne is always with him. He is now making plans for the future.
This era of sadness is also an opportunity for all of us to reach out and do something for someone else. Discover the power of your prayers to help others. By serving each other, we can rise out of our collective grief. Only then will we build a better future for ourselves and generations to come.
I’ve been asked how I send distance healing to others. Below is a teaching meditation to help people learn how to tap into the quantum fields and send healing energy. In my experience, it is an act of co-creation with Spirit. Those of us who devote time and energy to distance healing all develop our own ways of connecting and transmitting. Often a healing session will take on a life of its own, sending images, information, and instruction. They can be quite the Supernal Adventure! I hope you find this helpful.
Like the rest of the world, my life has been dramatically affected by the pandemic. In March my activities in Honolulu came to a sudden halt. By June I’d left the life I’d established to be with my elder daughter and grandchildren on the mainland. Then, the younger daughter announced another child on the way and I moved to California to help where I’m most needed.
In the midst of all the personal change, one thing has remained constant–I pray for people and send them healing energy. My circle of spiritual sisters pray for each other’s families and other people placed in our paths. A Zoom prayer group emerged from my Hawaii Unity church connection. We faithfully meet every Wednesday afternoon from our various states and time zones to join in the quantum field and send healing energy.
Each morning, I sit in my bedroom prayer chair, turn on high hertz frequency music and begin a meditation to gain access to the multidimensional planes. With my list of names before me, I concentrate on a particular person. Usually a picture appears in my mind’s eye. I see some version of the person. Sometimes the picture mirrors what might be happening in present time. However, the image may be unexpected. Recently I received a much younger picture of a friend of mine, as if that is her true self. Often the image may be an area inside the body. Vital organs, blood vessels, minute substances, muscles, bones–imbalances and problems are revealed. A whole mini-movie might play out of what the body needs to repair and return to wellness. Riding the ribbons of healing energy is a trip on an information highway.
Lately, I’ve begun recording voice memos of the impressions I’m receiving. The stream of consciousness information is illusive and sometimes slips away when I try to write down thoughts after the prayer session. Often I send off the recording in a text message and the recipient can use their discernment as to validity of the information.
Illness is layered. Covid and cancer are prime examples of diseases that present themselves in vastly different symptoms in people. Why do some people get so much sicker than others? The media focuses on “underlying conditions” with Covid-19, such as age, obesity, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and more. Yes, those factors certainly put some people at greater risk. But, for an energy healer the layer beneath the “underlying condition” sometimes emerges. Interestingly, some of the severe Covid patients I’ve been asked to pray for have seemed tired of life. The sameness, the responsibilities, the burdens and disappointments have played a part in their susceptibility to the disease. So before sending prayers centered on the physical, Spirit focuses on soul healing. I believe for many their experience with Covid-19 will have an It’s A Wonderful Life effect. Just as Jimmy Stewart has an awakening to what his life meant to others in the movie, Covid-19 will give survivors a new outlook. Life is precious. Priorities will be examined, relationships will be nurtured or changed. Epiphanies and hard truths will be revealed. Hopefully, a new appreciation for life will blossom from the hubris of illness.
Many sessions do focus on sending physical healing energy to someone who really needs the infusion. One of my favorite people to pray for has been Andy, the brother of a friend of mine, Cynthia. I’ve never met Andy, but when Cynthia posted a plea on Facebook to pray for Andy, who was in severe blood level oxygen trouble, I felt called to send him energy. Some people are easier to connect with than others. For some reason I connected well with Andy. The healing zone is a timeless, non-local field. I know I’m reaching it when jolting energy and heat fill my body. Images and impressions flicker across my mind. I serve as a conduit for healing energy. Andy seemed like a boisterous, generally upbeat man. But now he was struggling for breath. The session took on a life of its own as the energy rose in intensity. Dazzling golden light and divine electricity flowed to Andy. Updates from Andy’s wife revealed dramatic improvement for him. Rather than succumbing to the virus, his body was able to fight it off. It’s probably a slower process than he would like, but Andy is getting better.
I’m more aware than ever of the unity of the great cosmic web we have together on this earthly realm. Prayerful intention has a radiating effect at the micro and macro levels. In this age of media cacophony and endless entertainment distraction, carving out quiet time to connect to Spirit is more important than ever. We all have access to the quantum field to connect to divine forces and project power and strength where it is needed. It’s a discipline and a skill, a path to true empowerment and peace. It’s past time for many to return to love.
Of course, this is an era when many are passing out of the earth plane. It’s not just humans, but also entire species, and precious pets. Another part of this series will deal with sending energy to the departed and their loved ones.
But, for now, I encourage you to get in touch with your inner healer and send positive energy to the people you know, ones you do not, and the entire world.
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.
