The Art of Guidance: An Interview with Ray Dawn

Today, I’m interviewing Ray Dawn of Visionary Healing at Heart Star. I connected with Ray a few years ago, and have always loved her light energy. It’s a true delight to get to know more about her soul journey and deep connections with Star Family.


A warm welcome to Heart Star, Ray. Would you like to share with us a bit about your background and the evolution of your spiritual journey?

Hi Joanna! It’s a pleasure to be here with you in this way and I really want to thank you for the opportunity, I am honored.

Well, my background has been quite varied as I have always had a deeper awareness that there was more to all this and wanted to know what this is all about!

I experienced an awakening in 1992 that opened me up to a much deeper perception to my own experience. This profound and interconnected awareness initially overwhelmed me and so I made every attempt to shut it down. I realized I needed to work more on my ability to allow this without losing my sense of self to it if I was to develop this awareness further. During this time I was also reallyinto the work of a few well-known authors who wrote of their experiences with channeling.

But, this newly opened path to self discovery seemed very much like it was still on the backburner. I didn’t talk to others about any of my initial experiences,except for my mother. I didn’t realize at the time that even though I was pushing against this causal force consciously, it was still very much working within me.

I wanted to bring my experiences thru in some way that felt natural to me and so decided to pursue the field of art as a medium thru which I could assimilate information from the other side. I went to art school in Seattle, at Cornish College of the Arts, and loved it. I really went for it as it challenged my overall senses and how to articulate my developing perceptions of the world around and within me.

I would say that my art school experience culminated during a performance art ensemble where I took to the stage as part of a friend’s graduation thesis work where I painted the raw emotion of their performance as an interpretive abstract painting. I did this live on stage for 90 minutes during our run of 4 consecutive nights. It was truly wonderful.

After graduation I returned to Cornish to work as a lab assistant in the art department.One day I was approached about a film agency that was doing a commercial shoot locally and needed an artist who could paint live during filming. I sent them a picture taken of me painting during the live performance I had done at the end of the previous year. They immediately called me and told me that I had the job and also asked if I could arrive early on the day of shooting to help out with the art department too. I worked 16 hours with the crew that day and wound up being hired on the spot by the art director as a full-time member of their art department.

I worked in various capacities within the art department of this film agency on movies, commercials and music videos etc., all on locations within the greater Seattle area. It was a wonderful experience, but also a very consuming way of life with odd hours and very long days.

My film experience in Seattle cultivated numerous contacts from Los Angeles, as oftentimes core production units would come out to Seattle and fill in the rest of their crews with local talent. I eventually moved to Los Angeles thru one of these contacts where I landed a steady gig working on a talk show and also on several music videos of a number of big name stars. It was a real thrill, until one hectic day I got lost on the interstatewhile driving to location and had a panic attack in the car. It was such a jolt to me that I asked myself right then, ‘Is there a better way!?’

As a kid I had always wanted to work in film in order to affect a large audience and to help bring meaningful and spiritual messages to the masses, much in the same way that certain movies impacted me as a child, but this experience led me to question my way of life, in Los Angeles and in film.

As a result, I decided to return to my roots and I moved back to my hometown of Nashville,TN to work for my family business.This choice created a chain reaction… well it was perfect… as my life went straight out of the frying pan into the fire. Only now it was a major family crisis that I found myself directly in the middle of. Now that it is years later I can reflect back on my return home as something that was absolutely necessary for me to fully move forward with my life.

My return home became more about my facing how I had become me and less about returning to the family business. At the time, however, I felt like I had just hit a major roadblock and really questioned whatI was doing with my life, and why had I moved back to Nashville? For the first time ever I asked myself, honestly, ‘What do I really want to do?’ I felt a big changecoming but I knew returning home was the launching point for me.

I started having this strong feeling about moving to Sedona, Arizona. I had been there several times before on road trips and had some really big heart opening experiences there. At Airport Mesa, for instance, I had written some beautiful messages for myself that I knew was information from spirit.  I felt deeply connected and free there.So my partner and I, who I met in Seattle at art school and had been with me on this whole crazy journey, decided to move to Sedona.

I spent what seemed like the first 6 months processing my journey from Seattle, to LA, to Nashville and now Sedona.  It was like the closet opened and everything came falling out for me to review, added to this was the initiatory breakthroughs thathappen when you live in the energy of a vortex! This is when things really opened up for me…

What do you regard as a ‘key moment’ (or moments) in your soul path?

Shortly after these initial 6 months of processing, not knowing what I was doing with my life, etc., I had this deep feeling that those things that really mattered to me deep down where now going to take center stage in my life.

I found out one day that one of my favorite channels—whose book I had read years before– was coming to Sedona and giving a workshop. She hadn’t been to Sedona to teach in like 20 years and was going to hold her workshop at this healing center that was two minutes from my home.

The workshop was by Lyssa Royal Holt. She came to teach Pleiadian Metaphysics during a 2-day workshop and she was amazing. I had never been around live channeling before and so it was at this workshop, during a break, that I went home to rest for a brief moment. While I was lying there I began to feel the strong presence of whales in my room! I saw them,felt them and everything was blue and green. It was a big flash that had never happened before so strongly. I thought to myself, ‘Wow, here we go…!’

That night after the workshop concluded I went to bed as usual. At some point during the night I woke up and sat straight up in bed, trying to focus my eyes as I looked toward the foot of the bed, lo and behold there were these beings there! I remember everything slowed down and became surreal. There was one being in front and three others behind her and they were all crouching down and trying not to be too tall. They were very bright and beautiful and had on silvery blue jumpsuits.

Alarmed by these visitors I became scared. They were gracefully sending out loving energy to me, but in my fear my mind could not compute what was happening. It’s funny to me now, but at the time I was so scared that I said ‘NO!’ and suddenly theirfaces morphed before me, like in the Indiana Jones movie where everyone’s face melts from the Ark of the Covenant opening… They’re appearance looked something like these melting skulls!

What I realized later was that my fear, probably from watching a few scary movies as a kid, projected onto them and I couldn’t see them for who they were. My mind couldn’t comprehend it. I felt alone and shaking and wondered what had happened. I woke up my partner and he helped me to calm down.

As we sat there in bed this thought flashed in my mind, saying‘Go get your yoga mat.’ I realized that I had left my yoga mat at the healing center where I had just attending this workshop. Everything in me said ‘No! I will not go get it. I am never going to go there again.’ It seemed as though the appearance of the beings had something to do with this message for me to go back and get my yoga mat. My boyfriend, still comforting me, said, ‘It’s all ok, just go get the yoga mat tomorrow…’

The next day I reluctantly wentback to get my yoga mat and as I was walking in I’m thinking to myself,‘Just find your yoga mat and then leave.’

Well, it wasn’t so simple. One of the owners saw me, and remembering me from the workshop said,‘Oh yes, here is your mat.’ All of a sudden I just blurted out what had happened to me the night before. He suggested a 5-minute empowerment might make me feel better. This 5-minute empowerment was part of a healing modality they taught called IET, Integrated Energy Therapy.

He assured me that my experience was not bad at all and in fact suggested it was my higher self that orchestrated it! Him saying that gave me such a feeling of calm, and the energy work he did during the 5-minute empowerment gave me one of those light bulb moments where I felt I wanted to learn more. His name was Leon and when he introduced me to his wife Phoenix she saw me and asked,‘Are you a healer?’ I suddenly just burst outinto tears crying and said,‘I don’t know!’

Ha! So I then proceeded to learn as much as I could from them and take every class that they offered. In fact, both my boyfriend and I took every class from them–which included all levels of IET as well as other training and workshops. They were great teachers during our time in Sedona.

So literally,returning to retrieve my yoga mat…it led me on this path to where I am today. It was a big event and I am glad I listened to the message!

When did you first begin channeling, and what does that mean for you?

I started channeling shortly after completing the IET training in Sedona. IET really helped to set the stage for the energy work and healing work I do now. It focuses on ‘getting the issues out of the tissues,’ clearing past lives, cellular trauma,etc. I worked hard and cleared thru many layers of past trauma within myself and just became this empty vessel. Things opened up that I started to have amazing meditations and visitations from many beings too.

These beings became my new teachers. It was like going to school again! First,it was the Archangels, Raphael and Gabriel especially. Then I met Eliana, who I learned was a Pleiadian aspect of myself. It was actually her who was standing at the foot of my bed that I projected as a melting face. As an aspect of myself, she also represents a future me.Then it was Sanat Kumara and his lineage, they taught me for a long time. I also reconnected to many off-world races including the Arcturians and Zeta Reticilus, The Zetas came first and I did clearing with them and they imparted understandings about many things to me. Then the Arcturians came thru and when they arrived that is when the door to my first channeling happened.

For me, I feel so much love and connection with beings of the higher realms. I learned to do it all thru the heart and thru detachment. I connect thru the heart and allow that energy to connect with me, something I adapted from IET. Channeling is about allowing all that is to connect with all that you are. It is really who we are in truth. Our idea of reality is such a small part of all that is. Our eternal selves are always evolving, as are we. I guess you could say channeling is connecting with a fuller embodiment of our true potential, another you. That Mayan saying: In Lak’echAlaK’in, it’s really the truth!

I think the beings we channel are connecting us to other parts of ourselves, and giving us a glimpse of a potential of our choosing. It is so vast really and yet not that big of deal too. It just is. And I think the challenge of channeling is allowing that vastness without losing the sacred manner of it or treating ourselves as separate from it.

Again, we are all unique and we each have our own filters, but as Saint Germain often reminds me,‘Use your own special flavor!’ It’s all perfect, really, and it’s wonderful to allow the healing for your own life of course, for that is the true healing, your own… and no one but yourself can walk that path for you.

I was first drawn to your messages from the Pegasians, and feel their energy clearly through you. Would you like to speak of your connection to them and other multi-dimensional beings?

Oh yes! They really are my buddies and friends and soul family. They can pack a punch too, in that they don’t shy away from very serious issues that can really push our buttons, but they do it in a really loving way!

They first came to me in 2010. I had to work with them for a while in order to understand their energy and the way they spoke was beautiful and it felt like poetry to me. They always say,

“We speak to you in kind…In the kindest of ways we meet you here, in the heart space, and we ask you to relax there and listen to these words that we speak to you of.”

They are really awesome. I am putting together a book from all of the communications that I have received from them. Their message is one of true love and peace and how to fly free.They are a part of this whole transition to unity and they are also healers, teachers and friends!

Recently,I was doing a session on my partner and he became one of them! So beautiful and powerful! He became like a centaur, half man and half winged horse. The energy was so powerful, strong, and beautiful and deeply loving… like wow, that’s home!

I also have memories,or simultaneous experiences, of being Pleiadian as Eliana on her ship. Also, my beloved Persian cat Otis, he has passed away now,but when I first was opening up to hear beings talk to me he looked at me one time and was like,“Finally! You can hear me now too! Here I am.”

It never gets boring that is for sure! I never really seek out the information. Rather,it’s about allowing spirit and my soul to connect in the best way. I allow the energies to come thru as needed and trust the information will be there in that moment.

We are always evolving and can’t take anything too seriously… wow what a ride life is!

What are your goals, dreams and visions coming into 2014?

That is a great question! My goals are to come more into my true self– to let go of the old, outdated beliefs and fear constructs– and to just allow the presence of my essence fully into this sphere!

My dreams and visions are to also bring forth more writings thru books and teachings. I still have a goal to write a great story and for it to become a movie! I think film can be a great medium with which to create and to bring your own story forth from your heart!

Do you and your guides have any words you’d like to share for the Year of the Horse?

This is an extremely powerful year! It truly has come in with a bang and so much change is coming forth. A lot is happening on the inner realms as we are clearing to our core and allowing the truth of who we are. Our species is now really starting to come home to itself. We have been thru so much and only just beginning to see the light. It’s going to continue to change and we shall continue to grow into who we truly are as we then can meet with all parts of ourselves to come home to love. It is what is happening here!

Love is returning within, to each of us and opening doors to new ways of being. We are being guided, but it is always up to us to make the choices moment to moment. We are not separate and now we mus trememberwho we are and why we are here. It’s really simple.Love is the answer… always!

Stay in your heart and allow your own homecoming. Always you have the opportunity to listen to yourself and to find your own rhythm. Now is the time to do so.As they always tell me,“It is Now!”

Thank you so much Joanna! These are exciting times we live in and no matter what our ups and downs, I am glad I am here and I am in gratitude to you for sharing this earth with me and this message as well. All love!

Also, the Pegasians have a channeling they wanted to share with your readers to help you all connect to your soul families. It’s kind of like a meditation- Enjoy!

Much love!

Ray Dawn
