What A Medium Wants You To Know

I was driving my friend, Helen, around the North Shore of Oahu to see the tropical sights a couple of years ago. As I maneuvered the twisty roads, she casually said, “Oh, your grandfather on your mother’s side just popped in.”

Helen of Ripples of Light

That might sound quite startling, but Helen is an energy healer and a trained medium. Her healing skills have had a profound impact on my life, chronicled in my book, Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation and Me. In a recent Skype call, we primarily discussed her work as a medium and what she would like people to understand about spirit communication. I asked her why she developed her mediumship skills.

She said, “I’ve found it is a way for me to use my gifts to offer people peace. A woman told me, I can get a good night’s sleep. Often people get stuck in their grief, guilt or unforgiveness. A session of spirit communication can offer a release and path to healing.”

Helen has encountered spirits who have passed over in many ways–including, illness, accidents, abortion, and suicide. Departed loved ones often convey similar messages–they are doing well. They’re not holding grudges. Aborted children might present themselves as a young person, usually to say they are fine and still a part of the family. Most abortions are not done lightly. Circumstances can seem impossible to a pregnant woman facing the responsibility of raising a child. Women often carry abortion guilt for the rest of their lives. Communication from that child’s spirit can bring immense healing.

One thing Helen emphasizes on her website, Ripples of Light, is not to give her information about potential spirits who may come through. She likes to have a clean mental slate.

“Clients are very vulnerable and often nervous when they come for a reading. They begin spouting information just as I am tuning into the situation. I always advise, hold on for a few minutes and see what messages come through first!  It is a stronger validation if I can tell them their father died in bed with a heart condition, than if they tell me and I agree!

Spirit communication is not like talking on the phone. It is a language of images, symbols, and impressions. A medium may sense the person in spirit’s feelings, rather than getting a verbal communication. Mediums rely on a variety of senses, and it can vary depending on the medium’s strengths and the person in spirit.  A medium can hear, see, smell/taste, know, or feel the message.  If your Dad wasn’t a chatty soul in life, chances are that he will give his messages through a sense of knowing, or by sending pictures.  I encourage people to be patient in a mediumship session, and let it unfold.

It’s also best not to come with with specific expectations. There’s no guarantee that your grandmother will show up and tell you where she hid the family jewels. Spirit communication, like energy healing, is free flowing and often unexpected. Usually, it is just what the clients need to hear, whether they understand it or not at the time.”

Helen is also an animal communicator, both with the living and the dead. Here is one testimonial from Ripples of Light:

“One of our cats went missing and we were all devastated, we put up posters all over the town and we searched everywhere… But no Mr. Tibs… Helen called me and broke the news that he would not be coming home as he had contacted her spiritually to ask her to tell me he was in cat heaven and was okay.  After lots of tears, I asked Helen where his body was and even though she said that where his body was wasn’t as important as where his soul was, I needed to know, as I needed closure.  Helen described to me where to find him (we live in England!) so off my hubby went and within 10 minutes he called me to say he had found him exactly where Helen has said he was.  We were then able to bring him home and make him a grave.  Helen has an amazing gift.” AT, Lincolnshire, England

To hone her craft, Helen has taken courses from from several of the most renowned spirit communication teachers in the world, including James Van Praagh. She is a Reiki master and offers energy healing through her website, Ripples of Light. Though she was born in Leicester, England, she is an American citizen and has lived in Oklahoma for two decades. Her accent and demeanor still resonate her English roots. Through the years, I’ve come to think of her as my magical Mary Poppins.

On that ride along the North Shore, my grandfather shared information about my mother that was very healing to me. The greatest gift is knowing my family is still with me. I am never alone.

Helen offers in-person sessions in Moore, Oklahoma and is trained in platform mediumship readings for groups. She is reaching beyond the Oklahoma borders through Ripples of Light website. Her healing sessions are available via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. Treat yourself to a session for healing of the mind, body and spirit. Book your appointment today.

Feeling More Multi-dimensional These Days?

by Dana Taylor
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.

Increased Multi-dimensionality

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

Send Healing Energy to the Departed and Their Loved Ones

Part Three in a Series

by Dana Taylor
A close friend of mine, Thom, lost his long-time partner, Wayne, three months ago. Wayne’s passing was not a really a shock. He was 79 years old and in frail health. As parting experiences go, Thom and Wayne were a more fortunate couple than many. They had spent months in seclusion avoiding Covid-19 in their lovely island home. Over the summer, Wayne had been strong enough to nurture his beloved vegetable garden. Thom posted pictures of Wayne’s impressive heirloom tomatoes for Facebook friends to see. One fateful fall morning, Thom got up early to head downstairs to make their coffee and let Jake, their dog, outside for a while. When he returned to their bedroom, he found Wayne collapsed and unconscious from a stroke.
Wayne, Thom & Jake
For Thom, the day tilted into a surreal jumble of ambulances, medivac helicopters, phone calls to Wayne’s children, doctor updates and a dash to the hospital. By seven o’clock that evening, Thom and the family circled the hospital bed and said goodbye as Wayne took his last breath. In many ways, it was a beautiful passing. A gentle passing. For Thom, it was the beginning of the unavoidable journey through grief.

Power of Prayer Beyond Death

We’re living in an era of death and grieving. As a spiritually aware person and energy healer, I consider praying for the departed and their families an extension of the healing work I do. I firmly believe death is not an end but a transformation from physical to non-physical. It’s a birth. And I’ve been in enough birthing rooms to know it’s not an easy process. Certainly life outside the womb is a big adjustment for a newborn. I suspect there’s a corresponding birthing process to other dimensions that is equally taxing and sometimes traumatic. (See my post Conversations with the Afterlife.)
The classic books by Dr. Michael Newton, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, give us a glimpse of life-between-lives through hypnosis sessions with his patients. It appears the afterlife is far more complicated than a gentle reunion with loved ones or meeting an angel and dwelling forever in clouds and playing a harp. Our consciousness moves into other dimensions and often requires healing after traumatic passings or difficult lives. Even people who led fairly happy lives go through pangs of separation.
Healing prayers from those of us on the earthly plane aid in the transitional process. Prayers project power and frequency into other dimensions as surely as they do in our familiar three dimensional reality. My Supernal Friend, Sue, has a practice of praying for departed souls for a year after their transition. She asks for divine helpers to aid their adjustment and bring them peace for their grieving process of the life they left behind. Her efforts have been validated in messages from the other side through mediums. My husband, David, once came through unexpectedly to thank her for her prayers. His gratitude surprised us, because they’d shared an uneasy relationship on this side of the veil.

Healing for the Bereaved

Healing energy for people going through the very real wounds of grief is entirely appropriate. Humans truly bond at an energetic level. We create cords of attachment. Death severs those cords as surely as cutting off an arm. The term “broken heart” is literal. Deep grief can trigger a myriad of physical problems. (See article Physical Symptoms of Grief.)
Six months after my husband’s death, the grief hit me. A sadness I couldn’t ignore or simply talk away. I was fortunate to have a network of energy healers to help me through. Reiki treatments and massages from a gifted energy healer helped me rise out of the depths of my despair. David and I were granted one lucid dream encounter to say goodbye. (See Grace Through Grief: Six Months After My Husband’s Passing)
In this age of massive Covid deaths, helping people through grief is crucial. Reaching out to our friends and family with prayers, presents, cards and more is something we should all be doing.
The veil between this life and the next is becoming thinner all the time. Netflix has a new series entitled SURVIVING DEATH that explores the various avenues of afterlife communication. Interviews with mediums, ghost hunters,and reincarnation experts all raise tantalizing questions about life after death. For people suffering the worst throes of grief, it’s comforting to think their loved one still exists at some level. But there is no denying the loss of the physical presence. The departed are sorely missed. (Watch SURVIVING DEATH TRAILER)
Grief hit Thom hard. He lost thirty pounds the first six weeks. His normally ebullient personality couldn’t overcome the sadness. But, he is working through it with the help of a network of friends. The outpouring of flowers, gifts, phone calls and messages helped. Jake, their Australian shepherd, has been a comforting companion and faithful walking partner. Wayne’s grandsons visited to clean the garden and chop wood for the fireplace. Thom knows many people love him and wish him well. He will always miss Wayne, but in a million memories and otherworldly moments of awareness, he knows at some level, Wayne is always with him. He is now making plans for the future.
This era of sadness is also an opportunity for all of us to reach out and do something for someone else. Discover the power of your prayers to help others. By serving each other, we can rise out of our collective grief. Only then will we build a better future for ourselves and generations to come.

Send Healing Energy Meditation

by Dana TaylorPart 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.

Energy Healing in the Age of Covid

by Dana Taylor –Part One In A Series

Like the rest of the world, my life has been dramatically affected by the pandemic. In March my activities in Honolulu came to a sudden halt. By June I’d left the life I’d established to be with my elder daughter and grandchildren on the mainland. Then, the younger daughter announced another child on the way and I moved to California to help where I’m most needed.
In the midst of all the personal change, one thing has remained constant–I pray for people and send them healing energy. My circle of spiritual sisters pray for each other’s families and other people placed in our paths. A Zoom prayer group emerged from my Hawaii Unity church connection. We faithfully meet every Wednesday afternoon from our various states and time zones to join in the quantum field and send healing energy.
Each morning, I sit in my bedroom prayer chair, turn on high hertz frequency music and begin a meditation to gain access to the multidimensional planes. With my list of names before me, I concentrate on a particular person. Usually a picture appears in my mind’s eye. I see some version of the person. Sometimes the picture mirrors what might be happening in present time. However, the image may be unexpected. Recently I received a much younger picture of a friend of mine, as if that is her true self. Often the image may be an area inside the body. Vital organs, blood vessels, minute substances, muscles, bones–imbalances and problems are revealed. A whole mini-movie might play out of what the body needs to repair and return to wellness. Riding the ribbons of healing energy is a trip on an information highway.
Lately, I’ve begun recording voice memos of the impressions I’m receiving. The stream of consciousness information is illusive and sometimes slips away when I try to write down thoughts after the prayer session. Often I send off the recording in a text message and the recipient can use their discernment as to validity of the information.
Illness is layered. Covid and cancer are prime examples of diseases that present themselves in vastly different symptoms in people. Why do some people get so much sicker than others? The media focuses on “underlying conditions” with Covid-19, such as age, obesity, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and more. Yes, those factors certainly put some people at greater risk. But, for an energy healer the layer beneath the “underlying condition” sometimes emerges. Interestingly, some of the severe Covid patients I’ve been asked to pray for have seemed tired of life. The sameness, the responsibilities, the burdens and disappointments have played a part in their susceptibility to the disease. So before sending prayers centered on the physical, Spirit focuses on soul healing. I believe for many their experience with Covid-19 will have an It’s A Wonderful Life effect. Just as Jimmy Stewart has an awakening to what his life meant to others in the movie, Covid-19 will give survivors a new outlook. Life is precious. Priorities will be examined, relationships will be nurtured or changed. Epiphanies and hard truths will be revealed. Hopefully, a new appreciation for life will blossom from the hubris of illness.
Many sessions do focus on sending physical healing energy to someone who really needs the infusion. One of my favorite people to pray for has been Andy, the brother of a friend of mine, Cynthia. I’ve never met Andy, but when Cynthia posted a plea on Facebook to pray for Andy, who was in severe blood level oxygen trouble, I felt called to send him energy. Some people are easier to connect with than others. For some reason I connected well with Andy. The healing zone is a timeless, non-local field. I know I’m reaching it when jolting energy and heat fill my body. Images and impressions flicker across my mind. I serve as a conduit for healing energy. Andy seemed like a boisterous, generally upbeat man. But now he was struggling for breath. The session took on a life of its own as the energy rose in intensity. Dazzling golden light and divine electricity flowed to Andy. Updates from Andy’s wife revealed dramatic improvement for him. Rather than succumbing to the virus, his body was able to fight it off. It’s probably a slower process than he would like, but Andy is getting better.
I’m more aware than ever of the unity of the great cosmic web we have together on this earthly realm. Prayerful intention has a radiating effect at the micro and macro levels. In this age of media cacophony and endless entertainment distraction, carving out quiet time to connect to Spirit is more important than ever. We all have access to the quantum field to connect to divine forces and project power and strength where it is needed. It’s a discipline and a skill, a path to true empowerment and peace. It’s past time for many to return to love.
Of course, this is an era when many are passing out of the earth plane. It’s not just humans, but also entire species, and precious pets. Another part of this series will deal with sending energy to the departed and their loved ones.
But, for now, I encourage you to get in touch with your inner healer and send positive energy to the people you know, ones you do not, and the entire world.
Bright Blessings,
Dana

House Call: A Story of Hope for the Chronically Ill

by Dana Taylor

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.
Bright Blessings,
Dana
