“Miracle”–an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause; such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.
“For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe, no explanation is possible.” from The Song of Bernadette by Franz Werfel
Since 2005 I’ve been puzzling the mystery of miraculous healings, when one of my closest friends, Paula, overcame an “incurable” disease, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), via two Reiki treatments. It took us many months to accept her healing had truly taken place. Eventually the word “miracle” was bandied about. (Read either of my Supernal Series books to get the full story.) Was it truly a miracle? Something beyond human ability to replicate? What if we had stumbled upon a valid, alternative approach to health and wellness? What if we were simply ignorant of the principles behind what we deemed a “miracle”? Perhaps we were like 17th century humans who have considered electricity, air travel, and antibiotics “miracles.” I’ve been studying “miracles” ever since.
So, of course, I couldn’t resist a book entitled Miracles from Heaven: A Little Girl, Her Journey to Heaven, and Her Amazing Story of Healing in the bargain books on a recent visit to Barnes and Noble. Written by Texas resident, Christy Wilson Beam, Miracles from Heaven, relates the difficult and inspiring story of Christy Beam’s daughter, Annabel. As the subtitle reveals, Annabel had been a chronically ill little girl for most of her life when she took a head first thirty-foot fall into the center of a hollowed-out cottonwood tree. While her parents, sisters, neighbors and emergency crews worked on rescuing her, she was transported to another dimension and sat on the lap of Jesus.
Christy Beam and her editors do a deft job of weaving the day of the fall and trauma with the back story of Anna’s debilitating illness. Christy and Kevin Beam live in the “silver buckle of the Bible Belt” in Burleson, Texas. Kevin is a veterinarian, Christy a stay-at-home mom with three daughters, Abbie, Annabel, and Adelynn. They were the perfect Baptist poster family until Annabel was struck with a disorder that prevented her from digesting food. Their journey through emergencies, surgeries, specialists, and vigilant monitoring is revealed, but not belabored. The resilience of little Annabel is inspiring, as is the unity of the Christian family that strives for joy and gratitude in all circumstances.
I don’t think it’s a spoiler to tell you Annabel not only survived the fall, but that she emerged completely healed of her illness. The book is written well enough with engaging personalities that knowing the happy ending is coming doesn’t take away from the reading experience.
This healing is reminiscent of Anita Moorjani’s book, Dying to Be Me. (See The Gift of Cancer.) Both books relate near-death experiences followed by complete healings of chronic conditions. These things happen. They fall far outside modern medical models. Double blind studies are impossible. They can’t be replicated by drugs, surgeries, or protocols.
Yet, there are lessons to be learned. Simply being opened to the possibility of improvement may be a first step. The Beam family maintained a deep, abiding Christian faith that got them through the toughest of times. After seven years of dealing with RSD, my friend, Paula, had been told by her doctors that her options were finished. She should go home, get her affairs in order, and prepare to deteriorate and die. When I suggested a visit to Oklahoma and a few Reiki treatments, she could have rejected the idea in resignation and despair. Instead, she reached out to a branch of hope. She didn’t expect a healing, but perhaps some relief from pain. Instead, she received the “miracle.”
One thing receivers of miracles seem to have in common–they reach out to others with compassion and generosity of spirit. Annabel is noted for her kindness and hopes to work with chronically ill children. Anita Moorjani travels the world speaking on spirituality and self-acceptance. Paula is always helping others less fortunate than herself.
Miracles have a ripple effect. At this point, I can only say, be open to “miracles” and when they happen, don’t ignore them. Miracles are a second chance at getting life right. Live with joy, gratitude and compassionate action. Maybe we can all become miracle workers.

Healing is an art, and an act of kindness….Dr. Gloria Martin
Last September I returned to Hawaii from the mainland suffering from the lingering effects of a toxic tick bite. My mind was foggy, my immune system compromised. I experienced a miserable week of rolling hives that barely responded to drugs prescribed by patronizing doctors. I was scheduled to perform with my woman’s chorus at an all weekend event and didn’t know how I would get through it.
I called my best Supernal friend, Sue, with my tale of woe. Sue said, “I’m getting the word that you need to go for acupuncture. They’re saying if you don’t go, you will really be in trouble.”
Maybe it was fate, maybe it was luck, but I called Hawaii Kai Acupuncture and Massage, near my home. After hearing my distress, the kind office manager, Danielle, rearranged appointments and worked me in for treatment with Dr. Gloria Martin, the next afternoon. I arrived at the office dressed to go onto a performance I doubted I’d be able to make, my energy was so low. I followed Danielle’s instructions, entered the exam room, disrobed, donned a sheet and lay on the table, ready for the doctor. Dr. Martin walked in and gave me her full attention. She listened to my theory of the toxic tick bite. I was impressed when she said, “Sometimes listening to the patient is the best information.”
After a moderate examination, she stared at the small blister on my stomach still visible from a two-month old tick bite. She said, “Yes, that is still a problem. I will get to work.”
Dr. Martin applied needles in multiple places on my body, as one would expect in acupuncture. She also aggressively treated the bite with needles, burning, and extraction. She turned me over and cupped my back. Head to toe, front to back, Dr. Martin worked on the energetic channels of my body to stimulate and balance my system.
After I left her office, I felt better than I had in weeks. I was able to perform for three long days. Dr. Martin’s treatment helped me get back to myself. I was so impressed. Generally, with allelopathic medicine you walk out of the office feeling as lousy as you went in, hoping that the drugs prescribed will kick in within a couple of days. You don’t expect the doctor visit to actually make you feel better. I discovered acupuncture could deliver immediate relief and enhance speedy healing.
I wanted to learn more. Dr. Martin agreed to meet with me to discuss her life, healing philosophy, and holistic practice.
FROM SPAIN TO HAWAII
Born in Spain, the tones of Dr. Gloria’s birth country still ring through her words. Her father managed a mine in the town of Leon. When Gloria was nearly five years old, he took a job in Germany. Soon, her mother joined him in Germany and enrolled Gloria in a convent school in Spain. She quickly became attached to a motherly nun and looks back on that period with fondness. Her first spiritual experiences occurred at the convent.
“It was so beautiful to be there. The nuns would sing like a chorus. I felt like I was in heaven with the angels. It was the first time I had quiet, mystic experiences. I was in the church one time. There was a statute of the child Jesus on one side of the church. It was like my friend. One time when I was looking at him and feeling a lot of love and attachment for him, there was a light that completely filled the entire altar and it continued growing and growing and everything was immersed in that light. The level of love increased as the light increased until I actually passed out and lost consciousness. It felt like such a gift.”
Dr. Martin and her family eventually moved to Barcelona, where she finished her basic schooling. At seventeen she followed her soul’s yearning, spending time meditating and trekking the summer through spiritual sites. She studied ancient philosophies and modern quantum physics. As winter approached, she returned to Barcelona, intending to stay with friends, but instead found her way to a Hare Krishna school, where she studied Eastern philosophies. By age twenty, she wanted to move to the United States to explore the opportunities of the American culture and economy. She was sponsored by a Hare Krishna ashram in West Virginia. Unfortunately, she found herself in a highly controlling atmosphere.
“I soon realized they had made a cult out of the philosophy. Oh my God, the leader was nuts. I was horrified and scared to death. He ended up in jail years later. I met a young man there who was a musician and we became good friends. We escaped that place together and later got married.”
They lived in Miami for a while and then moved to California, pursuing his career in the music industry. They had their first of four children and lived in Berkley where Gloria learned English and studied philosophy. By 1981, the California congestion and urban pressures compelled them to follow friends to Hawaii.
She discovered a school for acupuncture on Oahu run by a medical doctor who had observed traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) while serving in the military. Amazed by seeing surgeries performed without anesthetics, he studied TCM and brought acupuncture to western students. Gloria enrolled as a full time student, graduated at the top of her class, and immediately began practicing her healing arts. For several years she was the manager of a holistic clinic, working with a chiropractor and other practitioners.
Like many kindred spirits, Dr. Gloria felt a spiritual connection to the islands. The marriage ended after twelve years, but she established Hawaii as the home for herself and her children. She has been practicing her healing arts for over thirty-five years in Hawaii.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
I asked her to give me an overview of the basics of acupuncture.
“There is a body system that is the energy system, the “Chi” system. It runs in channels. It is subtle energy, but it is still physical. It can be measured by machines. The channels are like rivers of energy. They are all connected, but at the same time, they are separated as to specific functions. There is the Liver Channel, the Kidney Channel, the Heart Channel and so on. Each channel connects internally with the named organ.
Each channel carries the functions of the organs. We concentrate on the functions of the organ systems, rather than the physicality of the organ itself. We also look for patterns of disease. We look at the patterns and the malfunctions, the interconnections of the organs, and treat the patient accordingly, taking many factors into consideration.
We do it by manipulating the Chi that is running on the channels. There are approximately four hundred acupuncture points. Each point is like pressing a button that goes directly to the brain and also to the sympathetic nerves in the spinal cord. It causes a certain reaction in the body. It can immediately treat pain by stimulating the brain to produce natural pain relievers. It can stimulate hormones and all the many functions of the body, depending on which channels are being treated.”
THREE LEVELS OF ACUPUNCTURIST
Dr. Martin explained there are three different levels of Chinese medicine doctors:
The first doctor concentrates on the physical body and only that. It’s very mechanical. They place the needles, let them stay in place for a few minutes, then remove them.
The second level doctor considers the mental and emotional health of the patient, along with the physical. They are more observational and conversational with the patients. Treatment incorporates other modalities and herbal recommendations.
The third doctor incorporates the first two, but also adds spiritually intuitive guidance. These practitioners have studied ancient philosophies such as Taoism. They might consider generational influences that in the West we call DNA, among ideas like past life connections. It’s a much broader scope of understanding by the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states of the patient.
Dr. Gloria is one of the third level of doctors. She offers treatments, but she also advises life style changes. Healing of emotions may necessary to promote over-all healing. Each client is unique and receives specialized treatments and recommendations tailored especially for them.

Greetings, Dear Ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service.
I have now heard that phrase dozens of times in the past three years since I moved to Hawaii and began listening to the free audio messages posted at Kryon.com by channel Lee Carroll. Before my move to Hawaii I had read a couple Kryon books with interest, but life was too busy to become absorbed by the material.
In 2014 major life changes found me living in Honolulu without any social network or even a car. My feet became my main source of transportation and Kryon messages became the most interesting material to hear as I strolled under the tropical skies.
Messages dating back to 2002 are readily available 24/7 for anyone to access on the website. It was case of when the student is ready, the teacher will come. After years of reading esoteric material, the Kryon messages offered the next step of other worldly wisdom about where humanity has been and is heading. From beyond ancient history to the unfolding post-2012 cosmic epoch, Kryon is a teacher for the ages. I have absorbed and embraced much of the world view presented.
In January 2017, a notice from a Dr. John Ryan offering a Return to Lemuria Conference with the Kryon team on the Big Island of Hawaii in December popped up on my Facebook page. Interesting. I jumped over to Kryon.com to check it out, but there was no information there yet. Nobody on the 16,000 member Kryon fan page mentioned it. I had never heard of Dr. John Ryan. After the message popped up a couple more times, I checked into Dr. Ryan and discovered he is a board certified Canadian physician who works in mainstream medicine and yet also explores energy medicine. In fact, he has been inspired by visions and metaphysical experiences to develop what he calls Unity Field Healing.
Okay, now it was clear why I was getting nudged. Something new in energy healing? I was definitely interested.
But, spend the big bucks to go to a conference? Hmmm. I sent a message to a friend who I thought might be interested in going with me. Her immediate reply–If you’re going, I’m going. Ultimately, she invited another friend who wanted a week in Hawaii, so our condo and car costs were split three ways. Yes!
On the Big Island
And so, that is how it happened that I was sitting in a posh Hilton conference room with Kryon followers from around the globe and heard, “Greetings, Dear Ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service” in person.
Over the course of time Lee Carroll has developed a retinue of companions who serve as presenters for various topics. Dr. Amber Wolf leads meditations and Lemurian Women events. Robert Coxon and Lilly Wong offer spirit language and music. Prageet Harris and Marilyn Harper channel other entity messages. Kahuna Kalei adds her Hawaiian spirituality to the mix. The regular Kryon gang was there and I was excited to experience them in person, not just as disembodied voices coming through the ear phones.
Part of me feared I would be disillusioned, as happened with another prominent energy healer I saw in person, who came across as a money grubbing ego maniac. I am happy to report no obnoxious egos or money grubbers were in sight. In fact, Lee Carroll, the main attraction when channeling Kryon, was otherwise a low-key participant. He didn’t play up any celebrity hype, but actually made sure the audio visual equipment worked properly. People respected his humility and shied away from demanding photos.
What’s more, there wasn’t any Kryon paraphernalia for sale. No mugs, buttons, magic stones or even books. Other presenters had items for sale, but it was modest.
The meat of the conference was in the presentations and more importantly, in the meditations. The theme had been billed as Return to Lemuria and Akashic Remembrance. Dr. John Ryan revealed he had been instructed by his guides to sponsor the conference. It seemed important to bring together healers from around the globe to have the joint experience and learn more about Unity Field Healing.
What is Lemuria?
Kryon and others have identified Lemuria as the first place of civilization on the planet. According to Kryon folklore, Hawaii was once one great continent. The earth once rose like a great bubble of land from the volcanic pressure below. A more balanced civilization of gender equality than we know today blossomed for a time. As the land began to sink, people fled the region and traveled to other parts of the world, taking much of their culture with them.
Despite the passing millennia and modern cultural destruction, Hawaiian kahunas still honor the Lemurian ancestors today and guard many ancient traditions.
The Stargate Experience
Englishman Prageet Harris often joins Kryon events and channels an entity named Alcazar. He has created a sacred geometric structure dubbed the Stargate, which stood in the room throughout the conference.
For me, the most powerful parts of the conference were the meditations led by Prageet Harris and his companion, Julieanne Conard, both channeling Alcazar. The energy was palpable. Being in a meditative state, I don’t remember all the details, but something happened. When Prageet invited the Lemurian masters to rise up from under the earth of Hawaii and into our auric fields, I started shaking, coughing, and my eyes watered. It felt a bit like hanging onto a multidimensional roller coaster. A great ride!
During the second meditation, I “felt” a finger on my forehead, as if I was receiving an attunement. Learn more about Prageet Harris and the Stargate at TheStargateExperience.com.
At the Volcano
On Thursday four buses loaded up and traveled through the center of the island. The amazing terrains of the Big Island constantly inspire. The mountains of five volcanos tower like ancient guardians. Vast lava fields sprawl beneath them, giving way to primordial forests. Glimpsing a dinosaur would not be surprising.
After two hours, we arrived at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Visitors experience steam vents spewing gases into the air and can overlook the churning “cauldera,” the heart of an active volcano.
Kahuna Kalei led the group to sacred male and female heiuas on the rim over the volcano and offered holy chants. I sat on the earth and meditated, absorbing the energies of the volcano and the ceremony. A steady rhythmic beat from within the earth made me gently sway with it.
We enjoyed lunch and a Kryon channel on the grass at the visitor center. My bus buddy, Virginia, and I lay down on the soft lawn and basked in the sun, letting the words of Kryon drift over us. Really out of this world.

Dr. John Ryan and Unity Field Healing
Finally, on Saturday night came the main reason I believe I went to the conference–to hear Dr. John Ryan. I had purchased his book, The Missing Pill, several months before, so I had an idea of the material he would present.
Anticipating the four hour presentation, I feared I would have trouble staying awake. But, no, I was riveted. It wasn’t so much that I heard anything new. Quite, the contrary, after years of reading books on healing, quantum physics, and listening to hours of Kryon messages, I already knew most of what Dr. Ryan revealed.
For me the biggest take away from Dr. Ryan was validation. Here was a respected physician coming forward and speaking openly about multi-dimensions, visions, the unorthodox Kryon version of human history, and energy healing.
What’s more he’d also had visions of quantum DNA that resonated with my own experience. A while back I had a vision of DNA with an invisible, but very real, quantum strand of light entwined in the usual DNA models we see. Now Dr. Ryan was presenting a healing modality opening the idea of healing and releasing the power of DNA. Kryon has said humans only use about 33 percent of their DNA. Children will be born with higher activation. When humans reach over 40 percent, they will tap into true multidimensional abilities.
It seems to me the concept of Unity Field Healing adds two components to the current understanding of energy healing. The first is working with DNA. In Reiki and other modalities, we have been working in the auric energy fields, offering balance, releasing energy blocks, raising frequency. But Unity Field Healing adds another layer of working with DNA, the basic building blocks of the cells. The potential for healing is enormous.
Though I was reading between the lines a bit, I think the second new component from UFH may be working in the Akashic Field for healing purposes. Kryon speaks of “mining the Akash” for skills and attributes from past lives that are sitting in our energy fields. As UFH develops it may very well enlarge our understanding of Akashic memory and ties. Currently, the most utilized method to deal with troubling past life issues is through past life regression hypnosis as developed by students of Michael Newton, Brian Weiss, and Dolores Cannon. Could UFH arise in the post-2012 energy to heal those lingering old energy ties?
Dr. Ryan offers three attunements via audio files on his website for the modest price of $60. To close his session, he played a 40 minute meditation. At the time, it wasn’t as noticeable an energy experience as others had been during the week. However, my dreams that night were very telling. They were almost nightmares, revealing various fears I have had through the years. My dreams seemed to cleanse and release.
In the morning I felt a sort of hole at my heart chakra, as if I had done some emotional house cleaning.
I appreciate that Dr. Ryan has the courage to speak out about these unconventional areas, undoubtedly with some professional risk.

A Fond Aloha
The week was definitely a milestone for me. I enjoyed the full-on Kryon experience. I met Light Workers from the US, Australia, Germany, Finland, Switzerland, France, India and beyond. I no longer feel so isolated or strange in my emerging world view. Feeling ready to “take it to the next level,” I returned to Honolulu and immediately was offered the opportunity to lead a multidimensional workshop.
I’m excited about the future.
As Kryon would say, And so it is.

A client/friend alerted me to a new show on TLC entitled The Healer, starring Australian energy healer, Charlie Goldsmith. While a tropical storm battered my Honolulu apartment windows, through the magic of modern technology, I downloaded episode one to see what this Charlie fellow was all about.
