Transcend Cancer

by Dana Taylor

Cancer. Such a frightening word. It conjures up dreadful images of weakened, ravaged friends and relatives. Bald children from St. Jude’s Children Hospital commercials. People who thought they had it licked, only to discover a lurking inoperable tumor.

After an initial cancer diagnosis, there is talk of “killing it,” “curing it,” “fighting it.” Some people simply give up and yield to it.

As a healer and Reiki practitioner, I’ve been on the front lines with cancer patients. Interestingly, thinking back, most of them are still alive. Cancer was part of their journey. They have dealt with it and moved on. It may return, but, for now, those people are living busy lives.

Lately, I find myself engaged with some new people dealing with cancer. As I’ve been praying and listening for guidance, a recurring Word has come to me ~~ Transcend.

In my world of vibrational and energy healing, illness and disease are mainly about frequencies and energy blockages. Cancer is a frequency zone. Damaged, sick cells reproduce and overtake healthy cells. As a Reiki energy healer, I help people raise their vibration and transcend the cancer zone through Reiki treatments.

I encourage people to become pro-active and holistic in their approach to becoming healthier. Following a medical protocol is only one aspect of sailing out of the doldrums of cancer. If you’re dealing with cancer, here are some ideas to consider as you adjust to your new health status.

Move Out of the Cancer Zone

Fun over Fear ~

The Law of Attraction teaches that whatever we concentrate on increases in our lives. Consequently, the more a person is engulfed by fear of cancer and all its ramifications, the more cancer is encouraged to grow. Frankly, thinking about cancer all the time is boring. It’s a real downer.

Don’t let cancer define you.

It takes mental discipline to distract your mind from a constant drumbeat of cancer, but it can be done. Find ideas and activities that are uplifting and engaging. Affirmations, meditations, good music, good times, whatever raises your mood is part of transcending cancer.

Fabulous Food ~

Food has become source of fear with cancer. Blaming the hot dogs, GMO’s, and chemicals prevalent in our food can make us choke on every bite. Some people become obsessed with eating organic for fear of ingesting carcinogens. While I think diet and polluted water probably is linked to the rise in cancer rates, it isn’t healing to excessively worry about it.

Make good food choices–primarily live, fresh food. Understand food from an energetic standpoint. It isn’t simply calories, it can be an infusion of energy. I’m a big fan of smoothies. By liquefying fresh fruits and vegetables, you are ingesting live enzymes and whole food nutrition. Adding a blessing of grateful intention augments the natural energy of the food. The lessons from Dr. Emoto’s Hidden Messages in Water illustrate how molecules can be transformed by healing intention.  

Power up your food and water with healing energy through prayer and also choose from an array of water bottles now available for energizing drinking water.

Forgive and Forget About It

Cancer is often a metaphor for unforgiveness and guilt. Is there something that really “eats you up”? Is there an issue you need to “get off your chest?” Are events in your life “a real pain in the butt?” Life has a way of dishing up betrayal, abuse, neglect, and regret. Simply ignoring or burying negative emotions pulls you down into the Cancer Zone. Living in an unhealthy emotional zone can manifest into sick, unhealthy cells.  Cancer can be sending you a message.

Anita Moorjani’s autobiography, Dying To Be Me, eloquently describes the emotional connections to disease. The cancer journey can be very liberating of old patterns and grudges. Exploring the emotional trail that may have led to illness can actually be part of the Road to Healing.

Vibrational Healing ~

After my mother died from her long cancer experience in 1988, I determined to seek a different path of living. I prayed for guidance. My intuition led me to the blossoming field of alternative medicine. Chinese medicine, Eastern philosophies, homeopathy, flower remedies, essential oils, quantum physics, energy healing–it’s been quite an education. Ultimately, all these things come down to energy. What’s one of the first signs of illness? Fatigue. We sense our energy is being lowered by an invasion or imbalance of some kind.Vibrational healing focuses on raising the vibrational frequency at the cellular level. It can be approached in many ways.

For instance, my enthusiasm for essential oils is primarily derived from the understanding that they are extremely high energetically. Yes, they have components that kill germs, but it’s the infusion of energy from essential oils that is, in my opinion, their greatest healing property. The following chart compares the energetic measurement in various foods to essential oils. Working essentials oils into your daily routine is a fast and easy way to lift your frequency.

I

Processed Foods 0 Hz

I

Fresh Produce up to 15 Hz

I

Dry Herbs 20-22 Hz

Fresh herbs 20-27 Hz

V

Essential Oils 52-320 Hz

Eastern cultures have long recognized our energetic source. India calls it Prana. Chinese speak of the Chi. “Reiki” is a Japanese word for God’s Light or God’s Energy. Many healing modalities have an energetic foundation.The best known may be acupuncture which focuses on energetic pathways, called meridians, of the body. Keeping the meridians flowing freely promotes good health.

Modern science is meeting ancient modalities to produce exciting frequency raising machines and products. VibesUp is an intriguing company using the power of crystal earth energy in a wide array of items. Vibrational medicine machines such as Trinfinity8 are utilizing energy frequencies for healing. Truly, it’s the new frontier of medicine. How wonderful it would be to see the end of toxic drugs and radiation for cancer treatment.

At any rate, thinking energetically about wellness is a paradigm shift. Begin noticing if something raises you up, or drags you down.

  • Live food vs. processed food. The life in uncooked food raises your energetic level. Processed food extracts extra energy to digest.
  • Meditation, classical music, and nature walks don’t simply raise your spirits, they raise your frequency.
  • Avoid toxic people, places and things that bring you down. The energy loss has a significant physical impact.

Embrace Living ~

Finally, realize that every day you wake up you are LIVING. Despite a negative diagnosis, as long as you are breathing and getting around town, celebrate Life. There may be a day when you slip into a true “dying” mode and that can be beautiful also. Don’t rush it. 

Write up that Bucket List and start checking things off. Set some goals and work towards them. Spend time with people you love and enjoy.

Transcend

I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence my help cometh. Psalm 121 KJV

Chakra Therapy for Cancer

Many thanks to Richard Alpert who provided most of the information in this article. He also alerted me to a helpful website for people dealing with mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Visit Mesothelioma.net for more information.

Along with traditional treatments, many cancer patients are turning to alternative, holistic forms of medicine. The combination has shown great success. Natural chakra healing is a type of energy therapy that can be used to complement other treatment options. Chakras are energy hubs that power and organize the physical body. These energy currents within the body are affected by the way we interact with the world. They help create and maintain health and balance in your body. The goal is to keep these energy chakras open and flowing. When an imbalance or blockage occurs, this interferes with harmonious energy levels causing the body to experience pain and disease. Restoring the balance helps promote physical and mental well-being.
 
What is Chakra Healing?
 
Naturopathy encompasses several forms of treatment. Each type of therapy is designed to heal and cleanse the body’s various chakras. There are seven main energy centers, or chakras, in the body. Cancer often manifests closest to the most imbalanced chakra. An article published in the European Journal of Cancer demonstrated a correlation between emotional stress and the suppression of the immune system. Emotional stress can also cause an increase in the pain and fatigue associated with mesothelioma and other forms of cancer. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, energy therapy is a palliative form of treatment that can enhance calmness, which helps balance the mind and body.
 
Energy Therapy with Crystals and Reiki
 
A cancer patient undergoes therapy to release the harmful effects of negative energy, open up pathways and restore balance. The healing crystals are uniquely colored stones containing various energy vibrations that help promote wellness in diseased areas of the body. While rose quartz stones enhance energy in the chest and lung area, smoky quartz stones help detoxify the body after cancer treatment like radiation and chemotherapy. Amethyst is used to promote mental and emotional healing. Citrine and sunstone help boost energy levels so that the body can recover more quickly from a cancer treatment.

Reiki energy healing is highly complimentary to patients undergoing cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. While those treatments may help eradicate cancer cells, they also weaken immune system response and generally deplete the patient’s basic energy level. Reiki infuses the cancer patient with healing energy frequencies. Patients report faster recovery levels, better sleep, and a general overall feeling of wellness.

Naturopathy may also include massage, music and aromatherapy. A massage helps lessen stress and boosts the immune system. Music has been shown to promote relaxation, relieve anxiety and boost cleansing chakras. The sound can be tailored to meet a specific diagnosis and personal preferences. According to the American Cancer Society, music therapy has demonstrated the ability to reduce nausea after chemotherapy and improve blood pressure, calm breathing and ease depression. Various essential oils can be applied during a massage, taken as a dietary supplement or used during aromatherapy. The goal is to help the body’s self-healing process fight off cancer and negate the emotional stresses that can aggravate the disease. It also opens up channels so that traditional cancer treatment options can be more effective.
 
Every ailment, including cancer, affects each person in a different manner. Numerous studies and years of clinical research have shown the potential benefits of alternative medicine treatments. Alone or in conjunction with traditional medical protocols, naturopathy targets the underlying cause of disease and reverses the negative effects of the condition.

Take Charge of Your Health

A cancer diagnosis is frightening, but it can also be a wake-up call. By reminding us of our own mortality,  it makes us examine our life choices and priorities. Cancer is a holistic disease–it affects mind, body, and spirit. Dealing with it in a holistic manner can be very empowering and life changing. Be pro-active in your therapy choices, seek spiritual and emotional wellness, treasure the gift of each new day.

Confessions of a Medical Intuitive

by Dana Taylor

My first medical intuitive experience was around 1983. Drawn to the subject of healing, I’d joined a church that organized prayer teams for healing services. One evening before a service, my two prayer partners and I met to pray before the service began. As we stood with eyes closed and arms linked, a picture formed in my mind’s eye of three blood-filled, round lumps on someone’s back. I described what I saw, thinking perhaps someone we would be praying for later would have such a condition. My prayer partner, Jeanie, said, “I think that might be me.”

She turned around and allowed me to feel her back. Sure enough, three lumps lay along the spine. Wow, that was surprising. Even more astonishing was they disappeared after my other partner and I laid hands on and prayed over them.

energyOver the course of the next few years, I received a variety of such mental pictures–bones, veins, tumors, organs, fluids–often in color. In some cases, physical symptoms also mirrored in my body. They generally weren’t pleasant either–chest pains, leg aches, sadness, fear. In the depths of prayer, I often made statements that seemed to come from another source. Later, I barely remembered the messages.

Working in the church setting only took me so far. There weren’t many good explanations of what was going on, except “the power of the Holy Spirit.” I needed more answers than that, which led to metaphysics, Reiki, The Reconnection, Quantum Healing and a myriad of emerging modalities in energy healing.

Of course, the more I learned, the more I realized how little we know. But, I do understand that our existence is far more complicated than the physical eyes can see. Humans and all creatures are energetic beings. Machines can now take pictures of our energy bodies. The most well known device is the MRI machine. MRI is short for “Magnetic Resonance Imaging,” which maps the energy emitted in the human body at the atomic level.

Energy healers become human instruments for sensing and transmitting universal healing energy. Through training  and practice, I’ve learned how to open myself to unseen, but very real, frequencies in the auric field and beyond. The top of my head detects a physical opening–like a balloon expanding under my skull. I suspect the pineal gland actually swells.

Woman at reiki session. As my client lies on a massage table, I run my hands a few inches above the body, sensing the energy flow. When I reach a stressed area, I feel a buzzing in the palms of my hands. For example, once a new client came in and I purposely did not ask why she had come. I felt it was a “purer” first session, if I didn’t have preconceived ideas of what might be going on. In her case, my first scan soon focused on the neck and shoulders. They were nearly “screaming” into my hands. As I hovered over the area, a picture formed in my mind’s eye of the crooked alignment of her neck. The shoulder muscles were also pulled and distorted. I then switched gears and flowed healing energy through me and into the region. I later recommended she find a good massage therapist who could physically work the area. She was impressed with the session because her reason for seeing me was the aftermath of a car accident and the residual neck and shoulder pain.

The reason I’m writing this post is not to brag about what a great medical intuitive I am. The truth is I’m not all that great. I’ve now met amazing healers who are far more advanced than I. Rather, I want to encourage others to tap into the information and healing energy that is available to everyone. For millions of years electricity was everywhere, but it’s only been since the turn of the 20th century that Tesla and Edison figured out how to harness it. Now everyone in the civilized world can turn on the lights. Healing energy is basically the same.

As humans explore their multi-dimensional capabilities, they will learn how to tap into the vast resources of information and energy swirling around them every day. Learning ancient traditions like Tai Chi, yoga, and Qi Gong are good ways to discover flowing cosmic energy. In my case, serious study of healing prayer in Christian traditions led the way.

The first step to connecting with the Creative Source is simply the desire to do so. There are many avenues to try. Meditation, prayer, listening to music, communing in nature. Read some books on energy healing. As the saying goes, “Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door will be opened.”

Then, lay hands on yourself, pets, or family members, seeking help and information and see what happens. Picture healing energy flowing from the cosmos through your head and down your arms. You may discover your medical intuitive gifts. They are a beautiful package waiting to be opened. Untie the bows and give them a try.

I literally could not put this book down

Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation and Me

Book One ~ Supernal Living Series

What others are saying about Ever-Flowing Streams~


F“Dana Taylor has written an engrossing and powerful memoir that touched my soul. I literally could not put this book down until I had finished the last page. I read with an open heart and an open mind, and I came away with a new and amazing awareness of my own inherent ability to heal myself and to offer healing thoughts to others. Dana’s story and her suggested healing exercises have strengthened my Christian faith, and I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is curious about the healing power of prayer.” Donna Fasano, USA Today Bestselling Author

“The honesty displayed in Dana Taylor’s memoir, Ever Flowing Streams, is immediately evident. From her painful battle with panic attacks, choking sensations, and chronic inflammation, she leads the reader patiently, but determinedly through her struggles for answers. Sleepless nights, more often than not, lead to too much alcohol to deaden the pain and allay the fears. The author lays out life struggles for the ultimate good of any reader open to the possibility of a spiritual solution.

Her Christian upbringing and beliefs blend, not always easily, with other forms of spiritualism. At times, she fights to open her mind to the belief that Reiki, for instance–often viewed by Christians as evil–might help her discover the awareness to heal her ravaged body and spirit, and possibly to help others.” Mary Cunningham, author Cynthia’s Attic Series

Powerful stories and raw emotion are masked beneath her subtle humor and down home personality. While the book is not a tutorial or a lesson, it is a guidepost to consider something more.” Karen Syed, Echelon Press

This is a book not to be missed. I highly recommend anyone interested in energy medicine, healing or miracles read this powerfully moving and illuminating book.” Lois Wetzel, author of Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akashic Records

Celebrating the release of Supernal Adventures: Exploring the New Normal of Multidimensional Living, Book Two ~ Supernal Living Series

Supernal Adventure

 

Explore the New Normal of Multidimensional Living

 

Supernal Adventures 

Supernal AdventureIn 2005 my friend, Paula, experienced a “miracle” healing of an “incurable” disease, RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), through a Reiki therapist. RSD is an excruciating condition. It generally begins after an injury. The nervous system keeps sending the pain signals. First noted in the Civil War, surgeons performed amputations in an attempt to halt the pain. The result was “ghost pain.” Though the limbs were gone, the soldiers still felt the throbbing, unrelenting agony.


A fall on a stairway began a seven year descent into misery and disability for Paula. She was ultimately on 29 medications and had two battery devices installed into her back with lead wires attached to her spine to offer pain control. Her entire right side was involved. She often used a cane and occasionally a wheelchair. She became part of a control group of an RSD specialist at UCLA. In the summer of 2005 the doctor told her they were out of options and to prepare herself for a life confined to a wheelchair and ultimately a bed. She was 50 years old.

Given that grim future outlook, she and her sister, Sue, took my suggestion to visit me and schedule appointments with the wonderful Reiki therapist, Helen, I had recently met. At the very least, it would be a fun vacation for them.

Much to our amazement, after three Reiki sessions, Paula no longer suffered from RSD. Her healing opened up a whole new world for us. Paula, Sue, and I began exploring energy healing, quantum physics, alternative medicine, and meditation. Our weekly meditation sessions took on a mystical life of their own. We began calling ourselves the Supernal Friends.

Being a writer and observer, I took notes of what happened in our sessions. Over the course of time, I filled pages and pages of what I called the Supernal Journals. Now, a decade later, I’ve used those journals as the basis for my new book, Supernal Adventures: Exploring the New Normal of Multidimensional Living.

Join the Supernal Friends on their many adventures. You may discover the new normal of multidimensional living for yourself!

Reiki via Skype. Does it work?

th[8]Energy healing is an ongoing theme in my life. It’s part of what I do, who I am, but I have no professional aspirations in that regard. Yet, Spirit nudges me forward. Sometimes it shoves me. A couple of years ago I suddenly had strangers coming over to my house for Reiki treatments, all started by a casual conversation with a new friend.

I was reluctant to charge money for fear absolutely nothing would happen. Much to my amazement Healing Happened. Each session was different. Energy flowed for physical, emotional, and even past life healings. At the very least, my clients enjoyed a quiet, refreshing session to realign their energetic pathways. My confidence as an energy worker grew.  Now, I’ve moved to another state where I know practically no one. I still pray and send energy everyday, but at the moment, I have no local clients, which is fine.  Spirit has nudged again. This time into the realm of working “non-local.” In the last two weeks, I have had two sessions via Skype for Reiki I attunements. (See my post on Attunements for more information about them.) Reiki_SymbolOnce again, I had my doubts. It’s one thing to work on a client under my hands and feel their energy auric field. Could we do such a thing simply seeing each other on a computer screen. Could I pass on the Reiki frequencies? Seemed like a worthy Supernal Adventure, so we gave it a go. We started out the sessions with discussion and meditations. I felt myself head into the “zone” of flowing energy. Then I performed the attunements, visualizing the sacred symbols, and moving my hands as if the students were seated before me. Did it “work?” Attunements are difficult to gauge. I haven’t heard back from the first person, who is dealing with serious health issues. The second person is exploring her own healing capabilities. Here is what she reported the day after the attunement.

Whatever it was, I do believe it worked!
 
I did Reiki on my husband last night and felt much more energy in my hands. It was almost distracting! I had my hands over his eyes (not touching) and kept thinking I was bumping his nose, but when I looked down, my hands weren’t touching any part of his face, but the energy made me think I was. I didn’t get much feedback from him because he fell asleep, almost instantly. At one point, when I was over his heart chakra, he took a huge breath, after breathing steadily during the session.
 
I felt a lot of white light energy coming in to me to the point that, my crown started prickling and I had the urge to reach up and scratch it. Glad I didn’t because it then started spinning like a propeller! I’ve never experienced anything like that.
 
I did Reiki on my dog this morning and also felt much more vibration. I had my right hand on her leg where she has a fatty tumor, but my left hand was vibrating so much, I ended up putting that one on her neck.
 
So, I do believe the attunement was very successful! 
The traditional idea of praying has always tapped into “nonlocal,” but our knowledge of quantum realities is expanding. As people develop their abilities to tap into the higher frequencies, they will change the world. (Hopefully in a good way!)
This adventure of exploring multidimensional living goes on and on.
Have a great day!
Dana
