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

2016 was….interesting. The political frenzy was overwhelming to the point that many healer and esoteric types have just been laying low, myself included. I have continued working with healing energy, keeping journals, and embarked on a few Supernal Adventures. In November, my dear friends, Paula and Wayne, visited Oahu. For those of you who have read Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation & Me, you’ll remember Paula had a “miraculous” physical healing of an “incurable” disease via Reiki in 2005. Her healing set us on an exploration of energy healing and multidimensional living.

I’ve learned to “expect the unexpected” whenever I get together with Paula. One dark Wednesday evening Paula, Wayne and I took a Mysteries of Honolulu tour with Lopaka Kapanui, a well-known Hawaiian storyteller. He took us to the extreme west side of the island and told of tales of blood thirsty female warriors, Night Walkers, and ancient battles. History mixed with spooky elements for the tourist trade. The final stop was a place called Shark Cave. Lopaka warned us that we might not be allowed to enter by the guardian spirits. Under an amazing starry-starry night sky, he offered a chant at the entrance of the cave. We waited silently a moment and then he signaled that we had permission to enter.

Later Paula asked him, “Who was the woman chanting back to you?”

“You heard that?” He was very surprised. Of course, he doesn’t know Paula like I do. I’ve seen her channel and even deliver messages from my now-departed pet cat, Buddy. She once called me and said Buddy wanted his bed back in the back yard. I pondered that a moment. I remembered the pile of towels that had been sitting on a shelf. I’d recently taken them in, washed them and put them away. I hadn’t realized Buddy considered them his new bed. Buddy, via cat-whisperer, Paula, got his bed back. That’s just a small sample of Paula’s multidimensional abilities.

So, back to Shark Cave. Lopaka told about the old hermit who once dwelled there (and still does), the old woman in another corner, and more disturbingly, the young boys who were murdered by a trusted teacher. The space made me feel dizzy and the image of the old, naked hermit floated in my mind. Paula tuned into the pain of the boys and heard some voices. During the course of the evening I took many pictures. The only one of interest came from Shark Cave. See the variety of orbs? As orb pictures go, it’s only so-so.

When I sent it to Paula later that evening she said, “Look, Buddy is in the right corner.”

Then the picture made me smile. If you look at the right foreground, it indeed looks like a cat has photo bombed the picture.

The Internet is rich with pictures and theories about orbs. One of the more respected books about the subject is, The Orb Project, by Klaus Heineman, Phd. Also visit the Celtic Gardens Spheres of Light website.

The orbs in Shark Cave were just the beginning. The following Saturday, Paula and I ventured back to the west side for a full day with the healer and stone whisperer, Angela Pouhakoula, who offers healing classes and tours to the Hidden Sacred Sites of Oahu.

Angela Pohakuola

Angela Pohakuola

Her home is actually a sacred site, filled with crystals inside and a prayer walk labyrinth outside. The energy in Angela’s home is palpable and peaceful. At one point we were standing in her kitchen talking and I suddenly felt a familiar cool presence next to me. What I’ve come to call “My Blue Angel” had joined us. In the otherwise balmy space, a pillar of cool air stood beside me. The appearance first began a few years ago in California when I created a Reiki Room. Several times I noticed the cool air. The healing sessions were always stronger and even one life-changing “miracle” occurred when it appeared. Paula once saw a beautiful tall blue angel behind me during a meditation session and said the name was “Asaniel.”

I had my doubts. Standing in the kitchen, Paula, Angela and I all sensed the cold spot. But, was it really an angel? Was it male or female? When I spoke to “Asaniel,” was I just being delusional?

Dana and Paula

Dana and Paula

The day included wonderful moments ~ walking the labyrinth, lunch at an organic farm, a sunset beach ceremony, a lomi-lomi healing session. I highly recommend booking a day with Angela if you visit Oahu.

The most interesting thing happened the next morning. I received a text from Angela:

Angela: Did either of you lose an angel charm?

Me: No. Why?

Angela: I found one on the floor.

Me: Was it in the kitchen where we sensed the cool air?

Angela: Yes it was! I’ll send you a picture.

angelcharm

This manifested charm answers my questions. It’s definitely an angel; it’s female; she exists. Since that time, I have been addressing Asaniel more frequently. Books about angels say over and over that our angels want to work with us, but they must be invited.

During the time Angela and I were exchanging texts, she snapped this picture of her labyrinth. I like to think she caught Asaniel as the blue orb strolling the sacred space.

labr After Paula and Wayne left the island, I figured most of the “unexpected” left with them. But, the latest orb/angel picture popped up Christmas day. The sun was setting on Ala Moana Beach. I captured this moment of my grandson and his daddy and an unmistakable orb companion.

sunsetorb

41snae-jo5lI think Asaniel wants me to step up my game. As synchronicity would have it, I downloaded Michael’s Clarion Call by channel Mary Soliel. The easy reading messages from Archangel Michael offer insights about connecting with your angels –and so much more! It is opening my mind to greater creative possibilities to doing the Lightwork so desperately needed as we head into 2017.

As we move forward into an uncertain future, it’s wonderful to know our angels are with us. 

Blessings in the New Year,

An Open Letter to #FreeNazanin

 

 

An Open Letter to Nazanin Ratcliffe

On April 3, 2016, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a 37 year old charity worker, was arrested without formal charges by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard at the airport. She was returning to the UK after a visit with her parents. The passport of her 22 month old daughter, Gabriella, was confiscated. Gabriella is in the custody of her grandparents. Richard Ratcliffe, Nazanin’s husband, is trying all avenues to obtain his wife’s release. She remains in prison.

Dear Nazanin,

I am one of the over 800,000 people around the globe who have signed the petition at Change.org requesting your release from prison in Iran. There are countless stories of social injustices and people wrongfully imprisoned. No one person can embrace or follow them all without going mad. However, your story ~ your face, your child, your parents, your husband ~ has become personal to me. It may be because you are near the age of my daughters and your darling Gabriella could be my grandchild. The idea of you wasting away in a prison cell, separated from your toddler and husband, Richard, trapped as a political pawn, hurts my heart.

nazanin-ratcliffe-2I’d like to apologize to you, Nazanin. I’m very sorry that as part of the older generation, the one that was supposed to make the place a safer, kinder, more loving place, we have failed miserably. The fact that two countries, in this case Great Britain and Iran, find it acceptable to punish you for their political disagreements, is reprehensible. With all the technological achievements the human race has made in the past decades, we have come no closer healing old grievances. Consequently, your little girl receives no good answers as to why her mother has lost all freedoms. She is barred from seeing her father and can’t go home. The sadness and fears of her grandparents’ situation must be leaving an indelible impression.

And for what? Because Great Britain never paid an old debt to Iran? Or perhaps you are being held as a bit of collateral for a later political deal. The power players may think themselves very clever, but it’s a weary game that nobody ever wins. I’m sorry, Nazanin, that civilization hasn’t broken through old patterns and risen to something smarter, kinder, and compassionate.

But know this, Nazanin. I am praying for you every day. I am one of many. I know you’ve felt like giving up. You’ve even stopped eating, become sick and despondent. Everyday I send you ribbons of energy and color. In my mind’s eye I imagine a different color uplifting you. I hope that on a physical level those colors manifest themselves to you in a tangible form of encouragement.

I even pray for your captors, your guards and handlers. I pray they treat you well and offer you moments of grace. Of course, I include your husband, daughter, and parents in my meditations. They need all the strength they can muster.

nazaninThis world is really a very small place. Rulers of little countries vying for power is ridiculous from a higher viewpoint ~ like watching one army of ants battle another army of ants on the jungle floor. I pray for the day that small-minded leaders give way to humans of higher intelligence offering positive creative solutions to the self-inflicted problems of the present.

It’s time to say, enough. The old ways have not served us well. Let us find new ways to create a better society for all the inhabitants of Planet Earth.

Until then, I will continue to pray for you, Nazanin. I hope you sense the Light overcoming the Darkness.

Sincerely,

Dana Taylor

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,

Dana Taylor

 

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.

Dana Taylor
