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.

“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.

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.

Blowin’ In The Wind

A Supernaltation from the notebooks of Dana Taylor

There is a time to measure the worth of the character of a people. The test is upon you. We are working to open minds and hearts of the closed ones, the sleeping ones.

11102-foliage-blown-away-by-wind-1920x1080-nature-wallpaperTurmoil reigns, as a storm comes to wash away debris and water the seeds of new life. The old ways must die. Like a bed of leaves falling, dehydrating, rotting and blown by the winds.

A great whirlwind arrives to clear the ground of decay. Once again, the seeds take root under the earth. They are sprouting now, unseen on the surface.

New life is coming. Wait. Nurture.

The old will give way to the new.

“Mystic Tea” is Just the Right Blend

mysticteaBook review by Dana Taylor

Visionary writer Rea Nolan Martin is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. Her ability to blend spiritual elements with complex character development, plot twists, humor and humanity is rare. Mystic Tea revolves around a group of nuns and two novices barely keeping their small community up and running. Written in the revolving POV of three main characters, Martin builds a story unlike any other I can recall. Gemma is a young woman who works hard at being the perfect nun, keeping tightly wound. Her fear: she is probably crazy. Arielle arrives on the scene after a jailhouse vision propels her to the monastery, a wayward, yet, sunny soul. Sister Mike serves as the very worried Mother Superior. The Vatican may shut them down any day. Everyone hopes for a miracle, but, the truth is, Sister Mike’s faith has been running on low for a long time. Other characters provide quirks and mystery to the unfolding story. Each character has a destiny to find, a mission to fulfill. Watching them take the journey is a delight to the read. Just the right cup of tea.

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

Of Orbs and Angels

Picture by Celtic Gardens

by Dana Taylor

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

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

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.

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,
