Do Prayers Have Power Beyond Death?

by Dana Taylor

If you’ve read my Supernal Series books, Ever-Flowing Streams and Supernal Adventures, you’re familiar with my “Supernal Friends,” Sue, Paula, and Helen. We’ve traveled the highways and byways of spiritual adventure, exploring Reiki, past lives, multidimensional living and more. Each of us have various talents–clairaudience, medical intuition, mediumship, psychic connections. Though we now are scattered between three states and over 5,000 miles, we come together via Skype for prayer, meditation, and friendship. Our “Supernal Sessions” often render intriguing spirit connections and insights.

Last weekend Paula was in the spirit communication mode. My seemingly ever-present Grandma Rose popped in. Paula saw her standing holding a scraggly dog, no doubt the beloved Molly.

She said, “Oh, baby. Oh sweetheart. You are so good with your new babies. They have a spark of you within them.” This made me smile. I’m spending most of my mornings right now with 5-month-old Aliyah and 3-year-old Noah. Aliyah’s soulful brown eyes remind me often of her Great-Great Grandma Rose.

The more intriguing connection Paula mentioned concerned Sue. Paula said, “There is a male with you. He’s somebody you only met a couple of times. He is patting you on the back, like ‘good job.’ He’s a friend of someone you know who recently passed very suddenly. He’s helping that person adjust to the other side. He wants you to know your prayers have helped. The friend went very quickly. No pain. He wants people to know he is fine.”

At first Sue had no idea who Paula was talking about. Then, she remembered. A former co-worker named Anthony died of a stroke while performing music a couple of months ago. He was only about 50 years old. Sue was shocked and saddened to hear about it.

Sue has a heart for praying for people after they die. She feels strongly that they need support transitioning to the other side. Indeed, when she heard of Anthony’s sudden passing, she devoted time to praying for him.  In Western culture, we don’t place much importance on praying for souls who have passed. Despite a lot of talk about going to heaven, many people regard death as The End. According to many Christian doctrines, if a person hasn’t accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, they are destined to eternal damnation. Catholic traditions are a bit more broad-minded, offering prayers for the dead. Other cultures have a larger understanding of soul survival and incorporate praying for the departed and ancestors into their traditions.

In modern times, the most fascinating glimpse of what happens beyond death can be found in the work of Dr. Michael Newton as chronicled in his landmark books, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls. Regressing clients through hypnosis, he discovered memories of “life between life.” From Journey of Souls:

All souls, regardless of experience, eventually arrive at a central port in the spirit world which I call the staging area. Once past the orientation station there seems to be no further travel detours for anyone entering this space of the spirit world. Apparently, large numbers of returning souls are conveyed in a spiritual form of mass transit. Spirits are brought in, collected, and then projected out to their proper final destinations similar to a central terminal of a metropolitan airport that has the capacity to fly people out in any direction. The most outstanding characteristic of this world is a continuous feeling of a powerful mental force directing everything in uncanny harmony. People say this is a place of pure thought.

After souls arrive back into their soul groups, they are summoned to appear before a Council of Elders. While the Council is not prosecutorial, they do engage in direct examination of a soul’s activities before returning them to their groups.

Group placement is determined by soul level. After physical death, a soul’s journey back home ends with debarkation into the space reserved for their own colony, as long as they are not a very young soul or isolated for other reasons. The souls represented in these cluster groups are intimate old friends who have the same awareness level. Members of the same cluster group are closely united for all eternity. These tightly-knit clusters are often composed of like-minded souls with common objectives which they continually work out with each other. Usually they choose lives together as relatives and close friends during their incarnations on Earth.

It’s been many years since I read Dr. Newton’s books, but they left an indelible impression. Life goes on and on. Dr. Newton was definitely a man of science. Questions about the power of prayer are not mentioned in his books. He never considers asking his clients anything about faith or religious practices. Yet, he presents a very definite picture of a structured after life. But the question is never asked: do our prayers cross the boundaries of physical and non-physical realms?

Eastern religions, shamanic traditions, and metaphysics would suggest the power of intention, prayer, and love has power beyond the earthly realm. Our Supernal Sessions have touched on this more than once. During an Akashic record reading from Helen, my own dear Grandma Rose chided me, “It wouldn’t hurt you to light a candle and say a prayer for me once in a while.” A few months after his passing, my husband, David, came through and thanked Sue for praying for him. I’ve witnessed Paula help confused souls to follow the Light and leave their earth-bound limbo.

Last week’s encounter with Anthony’s friend further leads me to believe the power of prayer for departed friends and family is more than wishful thinking. Just as I’ve seen the energy of intention intensify healing of physical bodies, it appears prayers carry healing energy to non-physical entities also. 

How it all works, I don’t know. As the Apostle Paul said, “We look through the mirror darkly.” Yet, these moments of spirit communication offer intriguing insights into the after life. My takeaway is prayers put loving energy into action. Time spent in prayer may be the most important part of the day.

Be the 100th Monkey

“Let me tell you that change is occurring fast and furious. You cannot see what it we see, but I tell you nothing is happening slowly now. You are wrapped up in a tidal wave of change that will open your eyes to a whole new life.” The New Sun with Archangel Michael by channel Mary Soliel

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” R. Buckminster Fuller

“You’ll see it, when you believe it.” Wayne Dyer

“You don’t know what you don’t know.” Kryon

It’s happening. The Shift is here. We are three years into a 25,000 year cycle. Exciting! Terrifying! The forces of darkness and old energy were never more obvious. They have come out of hiding, no longer lurking behind false facades. The spotlight is on them.

We live on a planet of free will. We have choices on how we respond to the unfolding dramas, choose our sides, pick our battles. Resist. Support. Follow programmed training or break the paradigms of conventional thinking. It’s all there for each person to follow or ignore as they choose.

This message is for the Lightworker. The person who has become a student of spirituality, law of attraction, quantum physics, and the biology of belief. Someone who realizes we are all connected, every person, every plant and planet. The air you breathe holds essence of all the exhaling people and trees, dogs and cats in the neighborhood. I am you and you are me.

Yeah, Lightworker, I’m talking to you.

100thmonkeyWe are the visionaries of the future. We hold the space in the now for tomorrow because we know it is also now. Use that power you hold to consciously bring forth the planet we want for our children–for ourselves when we return as children. Be that 100th monkey that lifts mass consciousness.

 

 

green-cleaning-service1I’m calling on you to devote time and energy to meditation and manifestion for the planet. Create a picture board and call it into being. Concentrate and see the following:

  • Clean air
  • Clean water
  • Clean energy
  • Clean oceans
  • Clean cities
  • Clean government
  • Happy, purposeful people

energythoughtThe future we see is the future we get, individually and collectively. Turn off the electronic devices for 15 minutes a day and envision a beautiful planet earth, filled with harmonious people. Don’t be surprised when that turns into your personal reality.

Then go into your day seeking opportunities of compassionate action. Pick up a piece of trash and throw it into a receptacle. Look into someone’s eyes and smile. Call a person you know is lonely. Help a neighbor. Volunteer for a worthy organization.

Be the change you want to see.

What’s A Lightworker to Do?

dana2 by Dana Taylor

Watching news and social media, it would appear that utter chaos reigns. What’s really going on? In seeking perspective, I’ve found wisdom in the messages of Kryon, channeled through Lee Carroll. For almost 30 years Kryon, a non-physical teacher, has been offering insights and new paradigms for an evolving human race. According to Kryon and many others in the esoteric world, we are living through a time of historic transition from one epoch to another. In 2012 the earth crossed into a new quadrant in the Milky Way. We are literally in new territory in the Universe. Old ways are passing. But, change is painful. Old thinking dies hard.

His last messages of 2015 revealed probable trends for 2016. He foretold that it would be a year of disclosures, and many of them would not be pleasant. He encouraged his listeners  not to dwell in frustration. Kryon warned that many “cans of worms” would be opened in 2016. Indeed, the worms are crawling everywhere. It’s been a year of full disclosure of collective fears, translated into bigotry and hatred.

So, what’s a Lightworker to do? According to Kryon, we need to realize that change is painfully slow. We are at the very beginning of a new cosmic age. It will take years to transition to higher consciousness on a global level. He says in 300 years we will look back and call these the Barbaric Years.

hold-the-space-shine-the-light-raise-the-global-vibration-ever-closer-to-the-frequency-of-our-loving-creator-thats-why-we-are-on-the-planetBut those of us who volunteered to be here now have work to do. We are the Lightworkers. Sometimes it all feels futile and pointless, but we can’t see the big picture. Here is an admonition from Kryon:

Some of you say to Spirit, “Oh, please remove me from this place. It’s not commensurate with the magnificence of God, and I’m not accomplishing anything here. People don’t understand me here. It’s not for me. Get me out!” Do you want to know how light-energy is created? Do you want to know how energy goes into the grid and into the earth? It happens when you go to those places you don’t want to go to and spread your light! You may be the only one there who knows about the light!

Let me remind you how you change lives, for you do not impose your energy upon the other person. You never have to communicate it verbally. You can just go and “be the light,” and in the process of going to a place where you think you don’t belong, you’re right where you asked to be when you gave permission for God to place you in your sweet spot! You’re right there helping other Humans. Oh, you may say you’re not and they don’t even really know you at all, but we must remind you that in those dark places, you may be the ONLY light!

We must remind you again of this phenomenon that we’ve talked about over and over, but maybe you didn’t understand. It’s about the energy created when you fill a room with light. It lets the others around you see their choices more clearly. You never have to verbally communicate with them. They may never know your name, and you may come and go many, many times. Your presence actually might enhance their paths – not in an evangelistic way, but in a way that allows them to see things they may not have seen before in the dark. They may make better choices for themselves due to what you brought. And while you’re creating that solution, you’re praying to be released from that place. [Laughter.] Do you really mean it? That’s what a lightworker does. And so we say to you, if this is your plight, we’ve heard your prayer. We ask you to celebrate where you’re going every day. There will come a time when you’re finished spreading light there, and you’ll move on to a more appropriate place, but while you’re there, do the work and enjoy the journey.

~ Kryon 2009

There’s going to be a lot of push/pull. Old institutions that aren’t working anymore will crumble. Governments may be reorganized in entirely new ways. The power reign of Northern Hemisphere may wane. It’s all part of an unstoppable evolutionary shift.

Those of us who understand manifestation and the power of attraction need to concentrate on what is the best and highest in our personal lives. Then take it to the next level and create a better world first through our visions and then by our actions.

That’s our assignment. Hold the space, shine the light, raise the global vibration ever closer to the frequency of our Loving Creator. That’s why we are on the planet.

Shining the Light,

Did He Have An Invisible Passenger?

My book, Supernal Adventures, explores the “new normal” of multidimensional living. This post is about a “normal” man who had a most startling “new normal” experience.

golfer_swing“Bob” (name changed) is a mainstream, semi-retired business man. A very “normal” guy. He plays golf, enjoys the culture of the American South, has good buddies. His wife, Kate, is a writer and became a cyber friend of mine over ten years ago. About two years ago, she contacted me after being told by a psychic that she is an empath and possibly a healer. She reached out to me for information about things like Reiki and metaphysics. As our relationship grew, we Skyped and I eventually gave her a first level Reiki attunement. She began practicing on Bob, a willing participant. Many of his ailments improved. As it turned out, Bob is sensitive to the healing energies and even receives mental images himself. But, Bob is far from embracing the New Age or embarking on a spiritual quest. And yet, Kate appears to have opened a door for Bob….

I received an e-mail from Kate this week entitled:

Bob’s Metaphysical Experience

580ps-audi-rs-6-car-dashboardBob was on his way to Morrow, GA yesterday to see a customer when this happened: Questions he was asked are italicized.

Bob ~ Leaving garage, I backed out and set destination on GPS. Got on I-20 and it started getting cold. Temperature kept dropping and I didn’t think anything about it until it was so cold I was uncomfortable and thought something was broken. I started fiddling with heat controls and noticed it was set on auto at 72. Temperature felt like it was sub-60. What’s wrong? Everything seemed to be in place with system. Thought I’d lost the thermostat. I shut off air just to make it bearable and opened driver’s side window to warm up. That helped a little until I closed it and it was just as cold inside.

Driving and thinking, “What’s going on?” The radio was on but NO SOUND! Then, strange questions starting coming into my mind.

What is this TV screen? It’s a navigation screen.

What is it? Navigation system. What do you mean? GPS.

(Bob, that’s stupid. You know what it is!)

What is GPS? Global Positioning Satellite.

What’s it do? I’m going to my customer and it’s showing me how to get there.(Lull)

Do you mean it knows where you’re at? Yeah, it’s like radar. It knows where I am (this is crazy!) That’s that little arrow on the screen. (This is crazy!) We’re the arrow and we’re going to that black flag. That means it’s our destination.

GPS then says, “Traffic Congestion in 15 miles.” You mean it can tell traffic? It’s telling me there’s a traffic jam. (Why am I expounding on something I already know?) Then it was pretty quiet.

Brief case was still on the passenger seat. Nothing was physically different but it stayed cold. Air was very, very cold.

We get to traffic jam. GPS says, “Take next exit to avoid traffic.” Yeah, you’re going to avoid the traffic, right? The line then turns different on the GPS screen. The line’s different? Yeah, that’s the detour.

Since I was running late because of the detour, I needed to call the customer. I told Blue Tooth to “call Phil on his mobile.” Phil answers and we have our conversation and I hang up.

Was that a telephone call? Yeah, I called him on his cell. Cell? Yeah, cellular mobile phone.  

Drive to location and GPS says, “You’ve reached your destination and navigation system is turning off.”

We’re here? Yes, we’re here.

Car still cool, then temperature quickly rises, and the car gets stuffy. I open windows to get some air.

After leaving my appointment, I decided I didn’t want to come back on the Interstate. Set guidance and wasn’t told where to turn. I heard no guidance. I turned right and it took me back and in and around. I turned right, again. Now I don’t know which cross intersection to turn at. I go into settings and open voice prompt. The volume was off. Two lines navigation prompt and radio volume and voice prompt were off.  I punched up voice volume and radio. Voice prompt volume was off and I never touched the controls to turn it off.  I had to figure out how to turn it back on since I’d never seen this screen before.

Kate ~ When he left, I had asked his guardian angels to be with him on this journey and to watch over him. He called me after he got there to tell me about his experience. He was so shaken, he wasn’t sure whether he’d be able to make sense to his customer. I suggested he ground himself. So he got out of the car and walked over to some trees, took a couple of deep breaths and imagined his feet going deep into the ground. Since he was visible through the company windows, he pretended he was talking on his cell so they wouldn’t think he was nuts! Ha!

Since I had the experience with the medium a couple of months ago when his dad came through, he believes the spirit with him was his dad. Bob has often thought when he was in the car, “Dad would be amazed at all this technology.” The “conversations” went on for almost an hour!

Btw, the temperature yesterday was in the high 70’s!

energyDana ~ Congratulations, Bob, you’ve had an awesome Supernal Adventure! This is just one more incident of living in the post-Shift era. My interpretation of Bob’s experience comes from the teachings of Gregg Braden, Kryon/Lee Caroll and others. Planet earth is a new cosmic quadrant in the milky way. It’s a gradual turn–a 25,000 year era–and we are at the very beginning. The frequencies and magnetic fields are all changing. Communication through the “veil” is becoming easier. Loved ones who have passed on are keeping in touch and making their presence known. It appears their ability to influence our technology is getting easier for them. Or perhaps our technology is getting more sensitive to them–thus the malfunctioning of Bob’s GPS system and radio.

These experiences are becoming more common and we’ll have to learn how to evaluate them. The first reaction is generally, like Bob, “this is crazy!” As a society, we’re going to have to get beyond “this is crazy,” study these emerging realities and incorporate them into our world view.

Welcome to the New Normal.

You Might Be Weird If You….

 

In 2012, Jacob Nordby spun out a poem that began:

Blessed are the Weird People–

poets, misfits, writers, mystics,

heretics, painters & troubadours–

for they teach us to see through different eyes…

debut-releaseThe poem became a clarion call for creative types who never felt they fit into “normal” society. Inspired by enthusiastic response to his message, Nordby formed his Blessed Weirdian Tribe and the website www.BlessedAreTheWeird.com. Now comes the book, Blessed are the Weird: A Manifesto for Creatives.

The book isn’t so much weird, as it is passionate, inspiring, occasionally profane, and definitely erudite. Jacob Nordby knows what it’s like to break the boundaries of a strict cultural structure. Raised in a cult-like Christian fundamental upbringing, he broke free to explore the inner regions of his creativity. 

The first half of the book gives those poets, misfits, writers, etc. their own chapters. Nordby’s sharp and educated mind shines through as he quotes brilliant weird people of the past and gives us insights into their creative souls. The second half goes into the qualities of creativity itself and proclaims liberation from the constrictions of conformity.

The message of creative liberation resonated in my weird soul. As I read along, I often thought–yes, that’s me!

Jacob Nordby’s book encourages creative types to break the molds, blast the icons, and tear apart societal norms. It’s a joyful, passionate plea for soul liberation. Read the book and join the tribe.

It’s great being a Blessed Weirdian.
