Healing Feelings of Abandonment Meditation with Mary Magdalene
As a Reiki practitioner and empath, I often pick up emotions of my clients in a healing session. Most of us carry issues of abandonment from either the current life expression or past lives. We can feel deserted by parents, lovers, children, teachers-the list goes on and on. Deep seated feelings of abandonment can color our whole lives, making future relationships difficult as we project the fear of being discarded again.
Pondering this common hindrance to a full and happy life, I asked for guidance in creating a meditation to help people heal their abandonment wounds. My early healing prayer training included the concept of bringing Christ into a process called “Healing of the Memories.” For this meditation Mary Magdalene came to mind as a feminine expression of divinity to complete the energetic power with Jesus the Christ. Enter the sacred space of healing with the Highest of the High and learn you are never alone.
Enjoy this meditation to release issue of abandonment to move toward a peaceful, joyous life.
The Cat, A Vase, and A Burglar: A Tale of Divine Protection
by Dana Taylor
Crash! The unmistakable sound of breaking glass grabbed my attention as I wiped down the elegant kitchen marble counter tops that October day last fall. I turned around in time to see our five-month-old Bengal kitten, Shadow, high tail out of the living room and disappear up the second story stairs to her hide out. Drat that cat! Of course I quickly blamed myself for not removing the beautiful blue and gold scalloped vase from the mantle in the first place. She was growing everyday, leaping and exploring her new home. I sheepishly dreaded having to tell my housemate and home owner, Connie, that her lovely vase now lay in smithereens across the shiny hardwood floor because of my carelessness. Of course, I could put that off, as Connie was currently on vacation in Italy, far away from this house on the hills of San Jose, CA.
Frankly, at the time of the vase break, I was a bit miffed at my spirit guides for not telling me to remove it. It had crossed my mind and yet I had not taken that simple precaution and saved the vase. I’m an intuitive, sensing guides and angels ever around me, helping me navigate the daily functions of life. I rely on their guidance for everything from parking spots to knowing the exact day to place a Craigslist ad in the San Jose area for a place to stay in the middle of a pandemic. Connie just “happened” to browse the listings checking out kitten postings. She got me that day instead of a cat. It would be several months before Shadow joined the household. People remark on my “magical” life. At the moment of the crashing glass, it seemed the guides had let me down.
As it turned out, allowing the vase to break, may have saved my life.
Two nights later, I had finished dinner, cleaned the kitchen and headed up to my room. Being alone in the house, I had turned off all the downstairs lights. My room faced the street and was the only lighted area. By 9 pm I had changed to pj’s and set up my I-pad in the landing at the top of stairs in front of my bedroom doing some yoga. I had turned off the bright overhead lights, preferring the softer light through my bedroom door. Suddenly, my Boho Beautiful routine of stretches and zen poses was rudely interrupted by the sound of breaking glass from downstairs.
What is that cat doing now?, I thought. Cascades of breaking glass kept falling and falling. Good grief. Has that cat toppled the television? Is she running amuck sending artwork flying across the living room? Infuriated, I headed toward the stairs. Just as I reached the first step, the figure of a man rounded the dark corner, about to mount the stairs.
Without forethought, I assumed an Incredible Hulk stance and bellowed, “GET OUT!!” followed by deep growls. Truly, I sounded positively demonic. Guttural roars continued even after he had turned around and dashed away like the proverbial bat out of hell. I only quieted after I heard a car tear off down the street.
I stood at the top of stairs, blinking. Did that just happen? Have I just scared away a burglar? To say “something came over me,” is an understatement. In that moment when I saw that guy, I felt big and powerful. Like I could Kick His Ass.
The rest of the evening unfurled with efficient aid and protection. I’d recently gotten the phone number of a helpful neighbor, Mike. He answered my call immediately. When I said there had been a break-in, he replied, “I’ll be there in five minutes.”
Mike helped me deal with the police I’d called and then he boarded up the gaping hole in the French door. Mike is a real stand-up guy.
I also had a key to the unoccupied house of my daughter’s in-law’s home a mile away, so I didn’t have to sleep in the invaded house again. Looking back, I can see Grace and Provision every step along the way of the whole episode.
I think back on that experience with wonder. All in all, it was empowering to know I won’t fall apart in a crisis. My guides and angels totally came through. One theory about such things is that certain events have high probabilities in The Field as they get closer in time. The breaking vase two days earlier planted an assumption of a mischievous cat in my mind, not a scary home invading robber.
Had my guides seen the potential break-in and allowed, or even encouraged, the cat to break the vase and thus, set up my mindset? And who or what came through me as I took command at the top of the stairs?
You might be wondering if the police found the culprits. Maybe. The thieves’ activities in the neighborhood were captured on several security cameras and pieced together, which included reading a license plate from the car. I’m hoping maybe I scared the would-be burglar away from a life of crime. One can always hope.
In any case, I am grateful to my spiritual team for their guidance and support. And I’m especially grateful to that naughty cat for breaking the vase.
Angels Riff on Conspiracy Theories
“What is truth?” The perennial search for truth seems to be magnified in this communication age. My Facebook feed is filled with a dizzying variety of flavors of truth. It’s not simply chocolate or vanilla anymore, but a real Baskin and Robbins 31 flavors of “truth” served in single, double, and triple scoops. On Facebook I’ve collected as friends an array of conservatives, liberals, progressives, lightworkers, and non-conformists. Their posts give me an overview of opinions and emotions driving our society. I’m sure my posts also reveal my personal biases.
I have many friends in the energy healing lightworker category, what with me being a Reiki practitioner and Supernal Adventurer and all. Yes, I admit a fascination with the “out of this world,” including, but not limited to, UFOs, angels, crop circles, and quantum physics. I’m not a fan of Big Pharma, Big Oil, or Big Agra. Natural healing and organic eating are my jam.
Where do I stand on conspiracy theories? Historically, some conspiracy theories turn out to be valid, i.e., the Catholic Church covering up decades, perhaps, centuries, of sexual abuse. But for those who still believe the moon landing was a hoax of Hollywood special effects, there’s simply too much evidence to the contrary.
Conspiracy theories are seductive and breed distrust. They can also be true. They can also be false. This year it seems to me many have been seduced in alternate directions. Discord and suspicion is being seeded across all communication channels. Fears are being fed. Perhaps it’s time to step back and exercise discernment and common sense.
The following interview between well-known Gaia personality, Regina Meredith, and archangel channel, Belinda Womack, is certainly high on the woo-woo scale. Womack has been interviewed several times on Meredith’s Open Minds show at Gaia. She gives herself over to angelic entities to relay messages to us humans experiencing the planetary classroom known as Earth. Womack contacted Meredith saying the angels wanted to address conspiracy theories and how they are affecting the collective consciousness. I’m sharing it here because much of it resonated with me. Regina has certainly received a lot of blow-back in the YouTube comments, along with some support. I’m sort of placing a bull’s eye target on my chest for argument by sharing the interview. But, avoiding all controversy is cowardly. For me, the ultimate message of the angels is to promote love and connection, not fear and isolation. But, judge for yourself.
House Call: A Story of Hope for the Chronically Ill
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.
Zapped By An Angel
by Dana Taylor
I’ve been a bit quiet here lately for a variety of reasons, but a major one has been adjusting to a new energy that came in during the once-in-a-century lunar eclipse in January 2018. This business of multidimensional living has many surprises. Truly, I’m not sure what happened, but it felt like I was zapped by a major attunement. I was exhausted the week of the eclipse and the top chakra in my head felt wide open. Ever since I received The Reconnection attunement at an Eric Pearl event twelve years ago, my body adjusts to the new frequencies with jerking bursts of energy from the solar plexus. Often when I’m sending healing energy, I experience many quaking moments. They range from mild to significant. On a scale of 1-10, the post-eclipse energy bursts were an 8. Very strong and somewhat alarming.
Beyond that, my intuitive abilities seem heightened. Images and information from multidimensional sources are flowing more frequently and catching me off guard. The most amusing incident was when I was getting a facial. The salon owner, Connie, is an animal lover and we discussed her dogs as she worked her magic on me. In my mind’s eye I kept seeing a colored bird. It wouldn’t go away.
Finally, I asked her, “Do you have a bird?”
“Yes, I do, a wonderful canary. It has a red head and a white and yellow body.” She proceeded to tell me how she pampers this birdie with all sorts of special foods. Suddenly, I sensed the personality of this little guy. He projected the image of a bell. I saw him pecking his bell. I asked Connie if the bird had a bell in his cage and she couldn’t recall one. Then she pulled out her phone and scrolled through her pictures until she found him in his cage, next to a bell.
At that point it seemed important to ask, “What’s the bird’s name?”
“Oh,” she said, looking a little surprised. “His name is Jingle Bell.”
So, Jingle Bell the bird sent me pictures of a bell to tell me his name!
And that’s just one thing that has happened.
I’ve also felt the presence more closely of my spiritual “team” or angels. Nudges and instructions, detailed information when I’m sending healing energy. Last week a friend was having a tough night before heading to the hospital for major surgery in the morning. I hunkered down to send her calming, healing energy. Soon, I felt the cool presence of my healing angel to my right. I’ve been told her name is Asaniel. Once Asaniel showed up, an energy wave rolled over me. I was quaking, chanting, and buzzing. Wow! My friend was able to rest on and off during the night after that.
In the midst of all this, I felt led to listen to ANGELS IN MY HAIR by Lorna Byrne.
I’d never heard of Lorna until she popped up on Facebook and snagged my attention. The documentary on her life is very interesting. Coming from very humble beginnings in Ireland and living a uniquely mystical life, Lorna became a celebrity in the UK and Europe after the publication of her autobiography.
Born in the 1950’s, Lorna was considered the “slow” child in her family. She grew up seeing angels, but never told anyone about them for fear of being institutionalized. Some family members labeled her “retarded,” and her parents stopped sending her to school when she was 14. She often wandered off on her own, spending hours with her angelic companions, receiving a heavenly education.
She led what looked like a mundane and challenging life. She and her husband had limited educations and struggled to keep food on the table for their family. The angels gave her a vision early on of her husband and the poor health he would endure during their marriage. Seeing heavenly messengers is no guarantee of an easy life. Ask Joan of Arc or Bernadette of Lourdes.
Angels were Lorna’s best friends and mentors. Archangel Michael showed up quite often, along with other regulars. She also perceived energy fields and the occasional deceased human. Lorna’s narrative relates not only her personal life, but also the struggles of her native Ireland and the culture of her kinsmen. While many of her tales push well beyond the boundaries of ordinary “normal” people, she illustrates the interaction between humans and angels. Humans have free will and dominion over the earth plane. Angels offer assistance and guidance, but are often “unemployed” and ignored by their human charges.
The ultimate point of the book is that God and angels love humanity and are reaching out to us in multidimensional ways. Lorna imparts wisdom and insights from her experience as she continues her life path. Listening to her story has been calming during this time of personal transition. I’m certainly no Lorna Byrne with angels making themselves visible in my living room. Yet, her story allows me to feel a bit more comfortable in my “new normal” of knowing things and sensing guidance from multidimensional sources.
ANGELS IN MY HAIR is an engaging tale for the mystical minded. Say hello to your guardian angel and you may be surprised when you receive an answer back.
