The night is dark, the covers warm. I rouse to consciousness. A wave of energy enters my head, tingles my skull and travels down my body. It swells in a crescendo of electricity, charging my hands and feet. A burst of energy jolts from my solar plexus, like a splash hitting the shore. The power diminishes and pulls back. I lie there and feel the fading ripples. Pleasant. Refreshing. Perplexing. I wonder what that’s about?
In the past year, those “energy blooms,” as I call them, have become part of my new multi-dimensional normal. I suspect I’m not the only sensitive experiencing new energetic phenomena.
A Year of Sudden Change
Like the rest of the planet, COVID-19 upended my world. In March of 2020 I was living in Honolulu, having moved there six years earlier as a new widow. I built a pleasant life. President of a women’s chorus, busy with rehearsals, board meetings and show plans. I’d found a metaphysical spiritual home at Unity Church of Hawaii and participated in a joyful, sometimes hilarious, children’s chapel service every Thursday morning. I met gal pals at restaurants before seeing a show or movie. And, oh yes, I swam in the warm ocean. Suddenly, that life was over. Within the span of two weeks, Hawaii went from having the lowest unemployment rate, to the highest in the nation. Hotels and restaurants shut down. Beaches and streets lay eerily deserted.
I isolated in my apartment, more fortunate than most. My view included the ocean and distant islands. On a clear day, I could see Maui. But, isolation is isolation. Added to that, pandemic stress caused a blow-up with my closest friend, tumbling me into sadness and confusion. Insomnia plunged me into a listless, daily fog. April and May crept along.
Trying to find my footing, I spent a lot of time in meditation. YouTube transmissions by Steve Nobel became a lifeline. (See post Beam Me Up, Steve Nobel). In some quantum physicy way, Steve manages to record energy-infused meditations. He builds an angelic power grid and sends healing frequencies into the ether. Or something like that. Steve’s meditations pack an energetic punch. Additionally, I spent time simply sitting on my couch, eyes closed, spirit open, welcoming Christ consciousness to aid in the healing of the planet through prayer. The days and hours floated away. I gave myself over to a Higher Power and incrementally grew in the process.
I also came together with new prayer partners through Zoom. We hunkered down with our lists of people in need, including a variety of Covid patients from around the world. Aunties, cousins, friends of friends. My mornings included an hour for the prayer list. Covid became a Supernal Adventure in prayer. There appear to be layers of susceptibility with Covid, both physical and emotional. Some patients require weeks of relentless energy treatments. We persevered with people later considered “miracles” of survival. I have some intuitive impressions about the whole handling of this virus, but I’ll keep them to myself for now.
By the end of May, I’d made up with my friend, but it was clear I needed to leave the island where my activities were at a standstill. At least on the mainland in Missouri, I could make myself useful with my older daughter’s family. I spent the summer in the woods, hanging out with my two oldest grand kids, swimming in their pool. Feeding the not-so-feral cats and raccoons. And I continued praying and sending healing energy.
The expanded focus on prayer, meditation, and healing energy transmission increased my “multi-dimensionality” (new word I made up). I suspect I’m simply one of thousands of Lightworkers operating in “new normals” such as:
Enhanced physical energy sensations such as jolts, heat, tingling and mirrored pain. To illustrate, I picked up “ghost” shoulder pain in a client on my massage table. That guided me in working the area with healing frequencies, along with the mental images of healing the tissues and opening energy blockages. Once the ghost pain cleared, I knew we’d made progress.
Clearer information downloads and impressions regarding emotional connections to illness. For example, a friend asked me to send healing energy to her son, who had been in a serious motor cycle accident. Over the course of several days, the sessions played movies in my mind–the impact of the crash, the cycle crushing his chest, injury to the neck, organ damage. Each day I received different specific things to heal. One day it seemed I was holding his large hands, could almost feel the touch. As it turned out, he underwent a hand surgery that day. I came to “know” his personality and emotions during that period.
Light language manifestation. At one point a new spirit language circled in my mind and then gushed from my throat. I chanted and sang in an unknown tongue, accompanied by energy jolts. I recorded a few sessions and shared them with friends. Interesting and inexplicable.
Animal communication. That has not been a strong gift for me. But recently a friend asked me to send healing energy to her limping pet peacock, Blueberry. I pictured Blueberry and there was a moment when I suddenly connected with him. His haughty personality came through clear and strong. He feels greatly superior to his fowl friends. I saw he picks through his food to find some larger grains that are his favorite. I asked my friend about that. She confirmed she adds sunflower seeds to the regular chicken feed. I also saw some torn tissue in his leg and sent him healing energy. I’m happy to report Blueberry is on the mend.
Manifesting Material Needs. Whatever I need seems to come into my reality fairly quickly and easily. (And I’m not talking about ordering stuff from Amazon, although I’ve certainly mastered that skill.) The most impressive example is my current living situation. By the fall of 2020, circumstances pointed to moving to San Jose to be near my expecting-baby-#4 younger daughter. I felt my best bet was to place a well-written ad in Craig’s List. One Friday morning in October, intuition whispered, Post the ad today. I created a headline naming a certain elementary school, Do You Live Near….? On Saturday morning my now-housemate happened over to Craig’s List looking up the cat adoption postings. As it turned out, she got me instead of a cat. She rarely looks at Craig’s List, but “something” put the notion in her mind. I moved into her lovely hillside home in November overlooking the Silicon Valley. My room is cozy and there’s even a grand piano to play in the living room. Seeing a daily parade of wild turkeys crossing into the meadows is an added bonus. My daughter’s house is a four minute drive away. It’s worked out better than I imagined.
Blessings in Disguise
Though I was gobsmacked by the early days of the pandemic and certainly distressed with many unfolding events, I have to say, personally, I have been exceedingly blessed this year. The friends and family who contracted Covid-19 have recovered. My newest grandson joined his boisterous family with joy and celebration.
Connection to Spirit has strengthened. I’m taking “energy blooms” and enhanced multi-dimensional skills in stride. Social media reveals thousands of other Lightworkers are now on the planet quietly working for the greater good. If you’ve had similar experiences, feel free to share in the comments. What is your “new multi-dimensional normal”?
Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation & Me ~ A Spiritual Memoir
by Dana Taylor—Part Two in a Series
I’ve been asked how I send distance healing to others. Below is a teaching meditation to help people learn how to tap into the quantum fields and send healing energy. In my experience, it is an act of co-creation with Spirit. Those of us who devote time and energy to distance healing all develop our own ways of connecting and transmitting. Often a healing session will take on a life of its own, sending images, information, and instruction. They can be quite the Supernal Adventure! I hope you find this helpful.

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.
