How I Prayed Away a Yard of Ticks

Danaheadshot by Dana Taylor

My Facebook feed has a lot of Lyme disease stories nowadays. Whenever I visit my family in Missouri, we do a tick search everyday on the children. I’ve picked up a few myself. Being raised in California, I’d never seen a tick until I married an Oklahoman and moved to Oklahoma City. Here’s a story of my early tick encounter that might inspire and amuse.

The year was 1983. Our family moved into a new rent house in Edmond, Oklahoma, that had a nice back yard. With a dog, a cat, a four-old-daughter and a 9 month-old  baby, it seemed like a good location. When the temperatures rose, I noticed something strange. One day after being outside there were creepy, reddish bugs crawling inside my baby’s diaper. The next day the dog had swollen things hanging off of her. When my husband came home from work, I had him examine the dog. 

“What is that?” I asked.

He dug through the dog’s fur and grumbled, “Ticks.”

It took a moment to register. “Ticks?…TICKS! The yard is full of ticks??!! What do we do?”

He shrugged. “Call the landlord, I guess, and ask him to spray the yard. Better keep the kids inside for a while.” 

So much for having a nice yard to play in. If a call was made to the landlord, I don’t remember, but no one took any action. I tick powdered the dog (no Advantage in those days), pulled off ticks, banished the cat, kept the kids inside and got progressively more frustrated.

seagullThose were my early days of exploring the power of prayer. I was learning to take concerns to the Divine for help. Eventually, I asked about the darn ticks. As synchronicity would have it, I read a book about the early Mormons settling in Utah. One story jumped out at me. In 1848 the settlers planted crops, only to have swarms of what came to be called “Mormon crickets” feast upon their growing stalks and decimate the plants. The people tried stomping and beating the bugs, but were far out numbered. In desperation, the farmers and their families prayed for Divine help. June 9, 1848 is designated as The Miracle of the Gulls. Hundreds of seagulls flew in from the Great Salt Lake and descended upon the insects. The Mormons gave God the credit for sending all the birds to eat the bugs and save their crops. The California gull is the Utah State bird and a monument stands to commemorate the miracle.

I decided to pray for a little miracle of my own. I didn’t really want pounds of poison spread all over my yard, killing every good insect and possibly making us all sick. If the Mormons could call in legions of seagulls in huge fields, maybe I could attract a few robins, cardinals, and sparrows in one backyard. I began visualization. I’d stare at the yard, picturing birds walking in the grass, pecking at all those ticks. I mentally invited birds over to our house. Come here, birdies. And guess what…they came! First a few, and then more and more. Every time I glanced out the window, feathered friends were cleaning the yard. After a couple of weeks, the dog came in tick free and we began playing outside again. 

It was a wonderful lesson in prayer, visualization, and manifestation. The Law of Attraction is real. It’s important to remember, we attract what we’re visualizing–even if we don’t want it. As far as ticks and Lyme disease goes, I visualize a shield of protective energy around my family.

3399If a tick is discovered, we immediately apply Purification Young Living essential oil to the bite site and on the bottom of the feet. Actually, daily application of Purification strengthens the immune system and acts as an insect repellant.

SY9F7lGThis week I saw this meme about the benefits of opossums controlling the tick population. Maybe this summer I will visualize and invite more opossums to the property. I can see it now, The Miracle of the Opossums….

Have a great day–

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.

Ever-Flowing Streams ~ Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation & Me

Ebook and paperback available at Amazon

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!

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.

Update August 2015: Listen to Lois Wetzel speak about E.D.I.N.A in this radio interview on the Bob Charles Show on the Pyramid Radio Network

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!

Visit Edina Healing Temple.com for more information.

And that is our Supernal Adventure for the day….

What are Attunements?

Danaheadshotby Dana Taylor

The first time I attended a Reiki class, the teacher announced we would all receive an “attunement,” which would permanently change our energy field. Because receiving Reiki treatments had been such a positive experience for me, I thought in for a penny, in for a pound, and willingly submitted to the attunement process without much understanding of what it really meant. Even a decade and many attunements later, I’m not sure I understand what happens in the attunement process, but I do feel I’m a happier, healthier person–not to mention a more effective energy healer.


chakras[1]What is an attunement? It is an infusion of a new energy frequency into a person’s subtle or energetic body
. The term “attunement”is used in Reiki, and it reminds me of a piano being “tuned” to a new and better pitch. A Reiki master stands over the student and visualizes a Reiki symbol, which has a sacred meaning and energetic frequency and transmits it into the crown chakra and hands of the student.

Other energy healing modalities have various names for common processes–White Time Healing calls them “openings”; E.D.I.N.A refers to “initiations.” Even the Bible describes a similar event in the book of Acts when the Holy Spirit descends upon the followers of Jesus in the upper room. Evangelicals call the experience being “Baptized in the Holy Spirit.”

Whatever name you want to call it, the attunement process is ultimately a mystery. It is a meeting of Spirit and Human–and an entanglement. The human willingly submits to receiving an energy from an unseen force and at some level unites with it. It takes a bit of faith and courage to venture into the unknown and unseen world of energy healing.

My personal experience with these kinds of energetic, personal encounters began over 30 years in the privacy of my own bedroom when I was overcome with a supernatural blast of agape love and believed it was from the Christ Spirit. That began my journey into spiritual and natural healing.

Ten years ago I received my first level Reiki attunement. That quickened my ability to feel the variations of energy fields. Images of tissues and the inner workings of the human body grew clearer in my mind’s eye. The next significant jump occurred after attending a lecture by Dr. Eric Pearl on The Reconnection and receiving an attunement at that session. The Reconnection frequency made me very tired for a couple of days. Sometimes my body jolted like I had received small shocks. That still happens when I am in an intense healing session. Working on clients became more intuitive and effective.

I guess the word got out on the other side of the veil that I am open to the healing frequencies. I have been spontaneously attuned by healers many times in spiritual development circles. Occasionally in my personal meditation hours I’ve felt a new infusion of energy.

Most often an attunement will make me very fatigued for about twenty-four hours. Some times a cleansing process occurs. Each one is a change to my energetic body, which in turn adjusts my physical body.

Attunements not only increase healing capabilities for energy workers, they expand consciousness. You incrementally become more Aware of the world around you. Enlightened, as the Buddhists say. Peace replaces fear. Wellness overcomes illness. In my case, chronic insomnia disappeared. It’s as if my brainwaves have been realigned.

Reiki masters often recommend waiting six months between attunements. The body needs time to adjust and assimilate living with new frequencies in the auric field. It seems to me each attunement comes with its own frequency, color, sound, and sacred symbol. They become part the person and can be utilized for healing and co-creation with Spirit. They serve as a wireless connection, if you will, to multi-dimensional living. Often, a feeling of tangible love accompanies the experience.

As humans we live in a free will zone. We choose to engage with Spirit through attunements to work for the greater good. Attunements don’t happen without the permission of the receiver.

So, Spiritual Adventurer, if you are considering exploring the world of energy healing and have been wondering what the deal is with “attunements,” I hope this has been helpful. Attunements open the physical portal for spiritual communication. It is truly Supernal Living!

Blessings to all–

Dr. Emoto: He Showed Us the Power of Intention

Dr. EmotoDr. Masaru Emoto has passed away. Dr. Emoto gave us visual evidence of the power of our thoughts through his photography of water crystals published in the now classic Hidden Messages in Water.

According to OM Times, Dr. Emoto’s final word was “Arigato”–Japanese for “Thank you,” fitting for a man who promoted Gratitude as the best attitude for living life.

He used to say, “Life is LOVE which is a gift from God and parents, and DEATH is gratitude for going to a new dimension.” So now he is in another dimension and continues to look over us warmly with love and gratitude. 

Read the full article here: OM Times on Masaru Emoto

For me personally, Hidden Messages in Water was a life changing book. The photographs of water crystals transformed by pure thought and intention was a graphic demonstration of the healing work I do every day. The insights gave me courage to continue exploring the healing arts, despite the skepticism that surrounds energy healing. When you can see how water crystals are transformed by pure thought and knowing our bodies are mostly water, the power of healing intention becomes very real.

Thank you, Dr. Emoto for your gift to the world.
