As we in the US approach a highly contentious national election, it’s more important than ever that Lightworkers unite in sending peace and high frequency vibration into the world. In his monthly energy update for November (delivered a few days early), Lee Harris offers wise advice and insights into the coming days. Seek internal peace in the midst of external chaos. Generate offerings of peace to a frightened, angry world.
Our words and actions send a wave of energy that reverberate far beyond our understanding. Frankly, it’s my opinion much of the violent weather we’re experiencing is a reflection of the collective anger Americans are projecting. The spread of the covid-19 is a metaphor for the energetic influence we all have on each other.
Fear and illness are contagious. But so is faith, hope, and love. Which do you want to catch? Which do you want to pass on? There’s always a choice. Choose wisely.
I encourage Lightworkers, Prayer Warriors, Empaths, Meditators and all such folk to consciously spend time in the coming days projecting the highest vibrations of love and reconciliation across the land. We CAN make a difference.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

My romance with rocks began as a small child visiting my parents’ friends, Jon and Lois. As my mom and Lois chatted in the kitchen, Jon took 6-year-old me to check out his workshop in the garage. I remember it as a wonderland of rocks and stones. Jon was a rock hound. On weekends he dragged Lois up into the dry California hills searching for treasures of geodes and dusty stones. Jon showed me his rock polisher, a drum that turned rocks into shiny gems. Rocks lined window shelves and covered the tables in all their mineral glory. I was smitten.
After I became a Reiki practitioner in 2005, rocks began to “call” to me. I went from admiring them, to feeling and hearing them. They buzzed, thumped, and hummed. My ears didn’t actually hear them, yet they seemed to send their own tunes into my mind. It was all a little weird, but Reiki had opened a whole weird world and rocks were the least of it. I began collecting, taking home the ones that felt companionable.
I made an attempt at studying stone and crystal characteristics listed in volumes of rock encyclopedias. Amethyst is a healing stone, jasper is a grounding stone, etc. I soon got lost in all the definitions. Turning into a crystal healing expert wasn’t happening. Instead, individual rocks became my quiet friends. They became part of my ever-growing awareness of intelligence in the non-human universe. (Plants, bugs, and animals talk to me also, but that’s another blog.)
Let me share some of my favorite things about my rock friends.
Power – Stones are not inert. They radiate energy. Some of it is palpable to almost everyone. Magnets hold up favorite photos on the fridge. Crystals are integral to our communication technology. Uranium is the basis of complete nuclear annihilation. In this ever-increasing era of radiation and microwaves (5G is happening!!), people will incorporate stones like black tourmaline and orgone crystal energy devices to mitigate harmful effects of high tech.
Beauty – Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? The De Beers family and blood diamonds aside, humans have adorned themselves with stones with from pre-historic times. I suspect Eve had Adam searching out gems to string around her pretty neck in Eden.
Information storage and communication—One of my favorite books is The Standing Stones Speak by Natasha Hoffman and Hamilton Hill, published in 2001. The authors visited many standing stone sites in the UK and Europe and shared the information they psychically received from them. The book began to shift my paradigms of “reality.”
Storage space won’t allow me to bring home every rock that catches my eye. Nowadays, they have to really call to me in some fashion. Here are a few of my special companions.
Lava heart – Hawaii legend warns people about taking lava rocks out of their natural locations. Remember the infamous episode of the Brady Bunch? One morning I went to take a swim at Magic Island at Ala Moana State Beach. Magic Island is a calm lagoon created by a man-made barrier. There isn’t a lot ocean debris washed up. Lava isn’t a floating stone. The beach is not littered with it. Yet, a lone human-heart shaped lava stone lay near the spot I chose to place my towel. It caught my eye. I received the impression, Take me home. Therein ensued an internal conversation questioning my over-active imagination and Brady-Bunch inspired trepidation. Take me home, it seemed to whisper. Fine, I gave in. Lava Heart has been with me several years now with no ill effect. I took him (feels male to me) to Angela, The Stone Whisperer. She had the impression he had once taken part in Hawaiian ceremonies. I sometimes feel impressed to hold him during prayer and meditation.
Blue kyanite –I purchased this guy at a wonderful rock store in Virginia City, NV. The frequency buzz in my palm holding him is high and clear. Blue kyanite aids in chakra alignment and is associated with the throat chakra. It helps you speak your truth. My blue kyanite rests on a living room ledge, constantly energizing the room.
Amethyst – This lovely found me at the Meramac Cave gift shop in Missouri. The energy she exudes tickles the fine hairs on my arm. For sheer beauty, amethyst is a knock out. Amethyst has calming vibes and aids in clear thinking. My amethysts help create a peaceful energy in my home.
My move to Hawaii elevated my sense of personhood in stones. A visit to the sacred heiaus at Makapu’u Beach led by a kahuna allowed me to touch lava stones gathered from around the islands for their sacred properties. They are linked with ancient gods, goddesses and their families. The energy and “personalities” are palpable. The experience fairly blew my mind and took a while to assimilate. The kahuna also guided us to sit in a tidal pool of our choice for prayer and meditation. We spent half an hour by ourselves, warm water swirling around our bodies, waves crashing onto the shelf of lava. I experienced some sort of encounter that day with an Ancient One. For days afterwards, I felt dramatically attached to Hawaii in a new way. The air seemed bluer, the rainbows more exquisite, the vitality stronger. I sent a message to the kahuna to ask if my imagination was simply running wild. She replied she “saw” a female Hawaiian spirit around me while I sat in the pool. Hawaii became “home” after that experience.
I’ll end with the story of Kaneikokala, the shark god. Kaneikokala is a resident of the Bishop Museum. He is free standing outside some display cases on the first floor. He grabs your attention, like suddenly meeting E.T. The plaque near him says:
“Kaneikokala, a stone image of Ki’i pohaku made of vesicular basalt, was uncovered by Wahinenui, a kama’aina (native born) of Kawaihae, Hawai’i. Wahinenui was guided to the buried location by his dreams, claiming the ki’i had pleaded constantly to be taken from the cold in which it lay. Kaneikokala was brought to Bishop Museum in 1906, and not long afterward set permanently into cement in the floor of Hawaiian Hall. In spite of well intentioned efforts to relocate Kane to a suitable site outside the Hall, the image has steadfastly held its ground and refused to be moved.”
My Rock Cave
Since I moved to my current apartment last year, I don’t feel the need to surround myself with more and more rocks, much to my daughters’ relief, no doubt. I suspect the main reason is because my home walls are now encased by lava rock. I live on the side of an extinct volcano. A space was blasted out to make room for this cozy dwelling. I have front windows that over look the ocean. On a clear day I can see Molokai, Lanai, and Maui. (Wow!) The rest of the apartment is tucked into the mountain. The sheet rock walls of the bedroom, bath, and closet cover pure lava. When I return after a trip to the mainland, I feel the very walls welcome me home. The energy of the stones, the sea air and the power of Hawaii revitalizes me.
Speaking of revitalizing, Jon and Lois are still going strong, hovering around 90 years old. I visited them a few years ago. Their house is filled with majestic stones. Valuable, tall crystals stand as sentinels throughout their home. Exquisite polished globes of stones like tiger eyes, citrine, and agate decorate their tables. It struck me that they had created a “powerhouse” with their rock collection. IMO, that’s one of the keys to their amazing longevity.
I encourage you to find your own stone friends. They can enhance your life in ways you simply don’t understand…yet.

In this era of high tension, achieving mental clarity and emotional peace is more challenging than ever. As I scroll through my Facebook timeline, I’m struck by the irony of the Law of Attraction that few people understand. Intense emotion and mental energy directed at a circumstance will set cosmic forces in motion to manifest it into the physical realm. So, often the very things we do not want are the very things we receive. The poor become poorer, the fat become fatter, negative relationships repeat again and again. The world seems to need a refresher course in Ask and It is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
Seeking mental and spiritual sanctuary, I’ve explored some on-line resources. A friend shared the free app, Insight Timer, which offers a one-stop place for meditations and calming music. With over seven million users, Insight Timer gives people from around the globe a place to chill out. There is music with binaural beats, chanting, classical themes, drumming, flutes, singing bowls and more. A variety of teachers offer meditations from Eastern and Western traditions. Positive-thinking and emotional healing themes abound. I haven’t run across anything too woo-woo. For that, you need to visit YouTube.
The free-wheeling world of YouTube offers a smorgasbord of spiritual adventures. Strange accented or robotic channelers, modern gurus, sermonizing Baptists. They are all there. Spiritual discernment required. As I’ve stated before (Beam Me Up, Steve Nobel), the transmissions of the starseed mentor, Steve Nobel, appear to have a true energetic component encoded. I suppose that’s why he calls them “transmissions,” rather than the more passive, “meditation.” From his base in London, Steve broadcasts angel enhanced transmissions to break old ties, awaken akashic memory, and raise the frequency of his listeners. I can feel the energetic connection. My friend experienced a release of negative memories through a Nobel transmission.
Moving to Hawaii four years ago enhanced my spiritual development. The energies here are palpable. My life on the island is filled with grace. I have the luxury of time to meditate and pray. I send healing energy near and far. I’ve been led to good friends and creative outlets. Lately, I’ve also been led to develop a presence on YouTube. I’ve created some inspired meditations and infused them with healing energy.
If you’re looking for a respite from our chaotic world, I invite you to carve out some time, put on earphones, and relax with a Supernaltation. More to come as spirit inspires.

According to The Secret Language of Destiny book, I am on the Path of Articulation. If you are unfamiliar with this big tome, I highly recommend it. Based on astrology, it fits people to certain life paths according to when they were born. I’ve found it very useful in understanding the people in my life.
People on the Path of Articulation “are here to make a commitment to their unusual thinking or way of doing things by articulating it and bringing it to the attention of a broader audience.” Our core challenge is “overcoming the fear or rejection or humiliation.” Which I guess is one reason I found myself with New Age, mystical, healing urges living in the Bible Belt of Oklahoma for thirty years. I was learning how to Live My Truth, despite the culture around me.
Through the twists of fate, I now live in Hawaii, where I can relax into the spiritual diversity of the island. I’ve got the luxury of time, health, and energy to explore creative pursuits. I sing with a local chorus. I write their shows and my blogs and books. I explore the healing arts here and see occasional clients for Reiki energy treatments. Oh, yes, I go to the beach!
Lately, I’ve felt the spiritual nudge to build a Supernal Living presence on YouTube. People nowadays are listening more and reading less. I enjoy using my voice. I was a drama major, back in the day, after all. I’ve been told my voice has a pleasant, soothing cadence.
Anyway, the advice for writing a book used to be, “write the book you want to read.” So, I guess, now for me the advice translates to “record the meditations you want to hear.”
So, I have begun. Last evening, I meditated a while and got into the “zone” and then turned on the microphone to see what would come out. I felt healing energy flowing through me as recreated an experience very similar to giving someone a basic energy treatment. It seemed like I was also transmitting healing energy as it went along. Hopefully, listeners will feel it. I know I have been impressed with the energy that comes through the Steve Nobel transmissions. Perhaps, I can tap into some channels that connect through time and space. Now, that would be interesting.
At any rate, I am uploading popular posts from Supernal Living and will explore producing more meditations, picking up a theme I’ve developed on my Facebook page. I’ve posted pictures of rainbows, ocean scenes, and tropical settings of my life on Oahu and called them Aloha Moments. My Facebook friends seem to enjoy them. It feels right to expand Aloha Moments to YouTube.
If you have a half an hour to sit back and relax or perhaps, drift off to sleep, give this first mediation a listen. I hope you find it healing and refreshing.

Lately I’ve been asked to send distant healing to two young men struggling with on-going mysterious medical issues. They live in frequent pain. They struggle to work and raise their families. They visit doctors searching for help, but don’t receive much relief, only vague possibilities of maladies and a rotation of drugs. Neither of them are greatly open to alternative medicine or non-Western thinking.
As I’ve focused on them in meditation, I’ve received impressions of their physical ailments as manifestations of past life connections. Of course, such an idea is outside of their world view. They see this as their only human experience. They don’t see threads of other expressions, other times and experiences. They look only for chemical answers to healing their bodies. It brings to mind the Old Testament Scripture: My people die for lack of knowledge, Hosea 4:6
I wish I had the power to open their understanding of the dynamics of this thing we call Life. I wish they could view the current personality as just one bead on a long energetic string holding other personas. That string might not be a straight thing either. It could be twisted and tangled with beads from vastly different places and time frames. The beads impact and influence each other, all held together by the same buzzing string. How different their world view and sense of personhood would become.
I speak from personal experience. My world view changed after a life-altering visit to a Reiki therapist fifteen years ago. A life-long physical mystery had brought me to her therapy table. Standard medical options had long since been exhausted. Her insights into the last moments of a girl who lived centuries ago resonated with me. I wasn’t that little girl, but her traumatic death and feelings of anger and betrayal rippled into my current life experience. Of course, there’s a word for it: karma. I had unfinished business. Recognizing the root of my ailment was the first step toward true healing. That journey is chronicled in Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation & Me.
PAST LIFE THERAPY
Even though billions of people around the world incorporate the world view of reincarnation, it is still largely denied in Western cultures. Though past life therapy is not new, it’s still on the fringe of society. Ideas take decades, even centuries to shift paradigms. Hypnotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss, a Columbia University and Yale Medical School graduate, published the ground-breaking book Many Lives, Many Masters in 1988. In it he details therapy sessions with the patient who would forever change his life. During hypnosis she spoke of past lives and relationships impacting the quality of her current life. That patient changed the course of Dr. Weiss’ career into studying the consequences of past lives on patients. Similarly, in 1994, Dr. Michael Newton revealed his case studies of past lives and life-between-lives in the classic, Journal of Souls, followed by Destiny of Souls. Those doctors opened up a whole field of study that is still met with great skepticism.
At the University of Virginia, Dr. Jim Tucker continues the work begun by Dr. Ian Stephenson, who traveled the world investigating children who supposedly remembered past lives. Dr. Tucker has widened the field of study and continues to explore the idea that we are eternal beings. His book, Return to Life, reports on American children with connections to past lives.
Despite the work of highly credentialed academics, speaking of past life influence still sets of an image of an airy, flaky New Age guru, bilking naive followers out of their hard-earned cash. From some quarters it is considered evil and from the depths of hell itself. Fear-based thinking keeps many people in the darkness of their suffering.
SIGNS OF PAST LIFE INFLUENCE
From my perspective, this life is only one chapter of a big book. How could I know what brought me to this point if I don’t consider the earlier chapters? If you read reincarnation books, you’ll see certain patterns. For instance, say a person once died of terrible fall, breaking their back. Chronic back pain may be a problem in this life. Sometimes, simply revealing an event through past life hypnosis can have a healing effect.
Lois Wetzel’s fascinating book, Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akashic Records, reveals that often last thoughts can have strong effects. For instance, a drowning victim’s last thoughts might be, I should have stayed away from the water. So, subsequent incarnations come with a fear of water. Finding the source of the fear can be the first step toward healing.
Troubled relationships can have a past life connection. I once meditated about someone who treated me very well, but my feelings toward him were confused for no known reason. In the meditation, I saw us as two teenagers in Eastern Europe running through a forest, trying to escape murderous soldiers. As we ran into a clearing, I was shot in the chest. As I lay dying in his arms, I looked up at his face and blamed him thinking, I should never have trusted you. Watching the scene unfold in my mind completely changed my attitude toward him. The last thoughts of the girl had been immature and unfair. The boy had tried hard to save them.
Sometimes a person develops a mysterious malady that has an age trigger. For instance, one of my clients was perfectly healthy until she was twenty-three years of age. Suddenly, she became allergic to almost every thing she ate. Her skin erupted into cysts and sores. She lost weight. For fifteen years her relationship with food was a painful mystery. She eventually learned to live on rice, tofu, and vegetables. She came to me for Reiki treatment after a car accident. At her second treatment, we had an extraordinary session that included an angel (visible to me) and healing guidance about her stomach and intestines. After that session, she could suddenly eat many more foods. At our next session, we explored a past life connection. I had a vision of a young Asian woman in a terrible, dirty, dank dungeon. Her once-lovely clothes were filthy. She was starving to death. I had the impression that she was royalty and thought she could criticize the government, but had been imprisoned for her revolutionary outbursts. Her ordeal began at age twenty-three. The client and I had more sessions working through the resentment and anger of that life time, which led to a happier, more productive present life.
We humans are very complicated creatures. Truly, we know so very little about ourselves–why we do the things we do, why we like the things we like and hate the things we hate. We are the sum of countless experiences in many realms and many eras. When a person is chronically ill, looking for answers and direction in multiple avenues should be explored.
I hope the two young men find a path toward healing. Knowledge of their past lives may or may not be helpful. But, what if it is? What if a past life connection is the missing piece of their puzzle? What if they get a clue towards living a healthier, pain-free life? A life to enjoy their children and the days ahead. Isn’t the possibility worth exploring?
People shouldn’t suffer for lack of knowledge.
