The Life Breath and Pathways through which DNAND can be of service to You
Birth & Death
Each pillar is as much an anchoring point into the Earthly realm as it is a springboard for spiritual growth into the exploration and expansion of your multi-dimensional nature.
Birth and Death are the most sacred rites of passage for souls here on Earth. However, for most people, these rites of passage have been anything but sacred. Andrea and Derrick bring their unique skillset and presence to these most tender of transitions, offering to the soul transitioning into and out of this life and to the mother and loved ones, the anchoring and upholding of the Sacred space that is deserved, a service far too long overlooked.
What is also overlooked in our modern world are the many Spiritual Births & Deaths each person, community and the human collective experience throughout life as we mature and evolve. If/As we slow down and become comfortable with at first, the chatter, and then the Silence that follows, we naturally develop the ability to tune into the more subtle cycles of birthing and dying that we are involved in, that are around us day-to-day.
All work begins with the Individual. Any change one wishes to see or experience in the world, begins with change and growth within the Self... Self-responsibility, Self-empowerment, Self-love, Self-healing. The Individual IS the primary focus of DNAND.
Family can be a beautiful expression and container of Love and Higher Consciousness although for most, some of the deepest wounding occurs directly within the family unit and predominately in the form of unconscious emotional trauma. This trauma can be hidden for decades, a concealed depression and deep inner suffering only to reveal itself "unexpectedly " as abrupt negative changes taking the form of an illness, disease, injury, or other life crises. What would happen if Higher Principles, Higher Consciousness was brought into the family dynamic? How would you feel if your individual gifts and talents were recognized and honored within your family? If you could be seen AND honor, respect, and see others as well? How strong would your family dynamic become?... supporting each other and the family as a whole. Derrick and Andrea consider it deeply honoring to share their gifts in this way, helping and assisting the Light within families to shine even brighter.
Partnership is something many people strive for. In our world, most relationships habitually cycle through unconscious power struggles that reflect the collective deep wounding of the Inner Child and the search for recognition in it's male or female counterpart. Not all partnerships are created equal but do provide equally potent opportunities to learn and to grow in Love. How can your partnership be elevated? How can the Sacred be cultivated daily within your Union, where power is shared and cultivated rather than unconsciously turned against one another? The Sacred Union with Self and each other as primary focus within the Loves and Lives of Derrick and Andrea pours into all the work they facilitate, especially for couples.
DNAND creates custom curated ceremonial experiences to meet the needs of clients for
where they are at what they are going through and where they are headed
Not all work has to be performed in person. Although there is a certain potency with direct contact and exchange of energies; profound healing is as much available during online, phone, or distance healing sessions.
There are infinite ways in which healing and growth can be experienced. DNAND IS a vessel for Divine Energies and as such, honors and respects the situations that lead up to and involve the unfolding of the healing journey...your's, their's, OUR healing journey.
Take a look around your personal environment, your home, your car, your workplace. Just like Step 4 of the 12 Steps of AA where you make a searching and fearless moral inventory of oneself…you are going to do the same for your personal belongings! This isn’t just to declutter or to downsize, but the practice of making a searching and fearless inventory of the contents of your home and personal spaces is to consciously recognize what items are being stuffed away, held on to, prized, cherished, or simply forgotten about. It’s to recognize that everything is energy and everything has the potential to store energy and memories…echoes or imprints. You know that shirt that you always look at but never put on? Take a fearless moment to look deep into what space, energy, or memory that shirt is holding. Ouch, is it a painful reminder of something? A lost love? How about when you look at it actually reminds you of something quite negative that happened to you? These things, these items that we share our space our energy with…are they enhancing your relationship with yourSelf? Or are they holding you into a pattern that no longer serves you? Maybe a pattern that NEVER served you? This takes courage to be real honest with yourSelf and even more courage to let that thing go..especially when it comes to things that are “sentimental.” In actuality, what we think is representing or honoring a special moment or a loved one may actually be withholding that energy from YOU actually having the opportunity to ACTUALLY experience that energy NOW..like Love….that painting that you cant get rid of because it hung in your family’s home and reminds you of your deceased loved one may actually be contributing to a tether that inhibits that loved ones soul from evolving and may be inhibiting you from experiencing and integrating that Love now! All that can truly be taken with us as we evolve is the Love that we integrate.
2. Have the Willingness to Surrender to God or to Love as You Understand it.
A lot of people think that in order to become more spiritually evolved and Enlightened they have to take up a heavy meditation practice or do a lot of yoga and although practices of a yogic and meditative nature are incredibly beneficial for creating a foundation for the spiritual devotee, we found that a major requirement or habit directly aligned to the new lifestyle integrations associated with Ascension and higher levels of consciousness is more of a willingness to participate with God in the ever expanding present moment. As the eternal now creates in your perception an evermore so timeless and spaceless experience of reality there are a couple of tools you can rely upon to fill your time and to create more quality of life and ease of experience as you become adapted to a higher dimensional way of being. These tools will also reaffirm and strengthen your connection to this reality of Divinity and aid you along your path to discernment, a very necessary quality to have for beginners and advanced seekers while traversing the multiversal domains. Now as complicated as all that may sound, as the planet’s frequencies continue to rise, it will not be uncommon for many of you to grow accustomed to having experiences, like the one described, regularly and eventually as the underlying foundation of your day-to-day experience. One of the aspects of deep surrender to God that is definitely a necessary requirement for advanced realizations to arise in you is the ability to become more yin in your life. All of the ascended states take place from an environment of inner yin, inner cultivation of the gentle, for it is a very gentle and all pervading field out of which all content that occupies that field arises. Therefore the willingness to adopt a yin attitude and to avoid the complications that arise with egocentricity and the focus on the content of life, allows you to access and utilize one of the major keys to evolving on your path towards Ascension. From this place of great gentleness within yourSelf, arises a greater capacity to derive enjoyment and satisfaction from being contemplative with reality and with life, a sort of ongoing inner contemplation about the underlying truths and essences of life and reality itself, an ongoing satisfaction as the inner truths of things continue to present themselves to you all day long, deepening the depths of the inner richness of your quality of life and slowly advancing your wisdom over time. A yin attitude and overall contextual way of being goes hand in hand with a contemplative lifestyle. But even more profound then the capacity to realize Divinity consciously through the ongoing revelations of the Self, is the depth of Peace that ruminates throughout the physical body as one surrenders more deeply and develops a relationship with the field itself and the infinite silence within that field. Surrender is as easy as making a strong fist and letting it go. Try it right now, that’s surrender! If you take this practice of surrender and apply it diligently and consistently over time, to every aspect of your being, mental, emotional and physical, surrendering every thought, feeling, and desire AS IT ARISES within you, with great devotion and Love for God, this practice can take you to some incredible worlds that are completely and totally nonlinear, hence the need to surrender at great depth the aspects of the lower self that would remain in vibrational alignment to lower thought fields within the limited domain of linearity itself. In order to ascend to higher worlds courage is needed to relinquish the commonly accepted platforms and boxes that reality has been held within, to align to a new vibrational capacity and henceforth be aligned physically and vibrationally with those new worlds you’ll be entering. But all of this as “glamorous and exciting” as this may seem, is really nothing without the Peace of God which must remain a companion throughout the entire journey. We believe that as satisfying as the intricacies of Ascending to higher dimensional worlds are, nothing is truly as valuable as the Peace and silence of God and the quality of life and the capacity for Love that is birthed out of this inner transformation.
3. Choose the Correct Foods.
Similar to the reasoning of #1, food also holds energy and if we continue to eat in a 3rd dimensional manner then we will continue to be reinforcing 3rd dimensional energy within our advancing biology. We are talking about incorporating a new spiritual diet and it is not what many would think…from our own experience we have found the ketogenic lifestyle to be the BEST method of moving through and digesting the spiritual and emotional energies we are faced with as we rapidly clear personal and collective karma, update our biology and integrate aspects of our Higher Self. Not only does the ketogenic lifestyle improve functioning of our body systems (perhaps even more aligned with Lightbody integration/functioning than we are even aware of) but it also assist in purging stored wastes (on all levels) from the body. At this time on the planet where we are inundated by pollution of all kinds (electromagnetic, chemical, emotional etc) it may actually be of benefit to form symbiotic relationships with both beef and pork (for energetic reasons perhaps to be explored at another time, these are the animals we have chosen) as the meat (and the parasites) can assist in the transmutation and releasing of the pollution we are inevitably exposed to AT THIS TIME. While in a fully 5D world the eating of flesh would most likely not even be considered/needed, unfortunately we as a species are just not there yet, or better said, we are still transitioning, and some may find their “mission” to include moving through 3d, 4d, and 5d, regularly. Also unfortunately at this time, there is something as being too clean, and too sensitive to the point where it actually hinders one's ascension.
4. Gaze the Sun, Bathe in the Sun...
Incorporating these practices into your life, better yet into a daily routine will literally catalyze healing, rejuvenation, and activation on all levels of your being, quite quickly. The sun is a portal and transmits higher dimensional energies and light frequencies which have a direct effect on our DNA. By lovingly and ease-fully accepting the light from the sun into our eyes and on our skin, we are participating powerfully with our own evolution. To begin sun gazing, it is best to take your time, there is no rush, allow the sun to gradually awaken what lies dormant inside of you. The sun is easiest and safest to gaze within 1 hour of sunrise or sunset. Begin with a few minutes and increase the time very slowly. Relax, draw your gaze, your consciousness toward the back of your skull and allow the light to enter without straining. It’s not about making massive gains in the amount of time, it’s about entering into sacred, gradual union. The same goes for sunbathing. The first and last few hours of sunlight are safest. It is about gradual consistent exposure and the building of a relationship with the sun. The most benefit comes with the ability for nude sunbathing. Exposing the genitals as well as the glands and nodes of the lymph helps tremendously with harmonizing our bodies hormones.
...And Take Cold Showers. While the sun is activating, the cold acts in wiping the slate clean, exposing and erasing trauma. For this reason most do whatever they can to avoid the cold. People chase the Sun and run from the cold. However, as we open the body gradually to the Sun we begin to fill with and feel a sustaining Light, a sustaining power and this aids us in our ability to embrace the cold and embrace what it can offer us. As with the sun, take your time building up to the cold, begin with a cool burst at the end of your warm shower, build your tolerance to where it becomes enjoyable, to where you crave the cold shower. Both Sun and cold exposure will increase your immunity, cleanse and strengthen your aura and harmonize and optimize the body’s systems.
5. Bring Light to the Dark.
Its time to no longer be afraid of the dark! With all that Sun energy integrating into your system, what really brings it all together then is proper sleep in complete darkness, preferably on a grounding sheet. We are talking blackout curtains, no alarm clocks with red or blue light, no phone, no tv, not even the little light on a smoke detector. It’s amazing the levels of light pollution one becomes accustomed to and then once someone sleeps in complete darkness how sensitive they are to the smallest amount of light. The darkness in a way is what draws the light from the Sun deeper into our physiology to the point where the dark is no longer dark and we can connect with and experience Primordial Light, unfiltered, unburdened Light of Creation. As the helices of our DNA are activated and the more concentrated light information has pathways in our body to travel through, areas of oneself that were once comfortable being in the dark (absence of information) slowly begin being filled, and our tolerance for that darkness within ourselves becomes no longer possible. Through the assistance of the sunlight in our bodies combined with the other practices mentioned here, we spontaneously begin digesting and transmutating old emotional undigested wounds held in the subconscious into open and clear pathways for Light and Joy to flow through. Therefore when we begin operating this efficiently and our entire glandular system and neurophysiology begins to change and rewire itself toward this optimum efficiency, we find ourselves becoming incredibly healthy and sometimes this can result in a need for far less sleep. Another exciting thing about this newly acquired physiological efficiency is that less digesting and less time spent on digesting old wounds or even thoughts or happenings of the day is needed and this allows one (over time and with gentleness and consistency) to move increasingly closer to deep dreamless sleep without the echoes and underlying renderings of the unacknowledged subconscious and as we begin to experience deep dreamless sleep consistently in our lives, it dramatically enhances our ability to live in the Light of Day in the Now in a way that is very open and free.

Back in 2014, during one of our Lights "weekends" (our workdays traveling to various centers in the US offering Crystal Light Bed sessions) in Bethesda, MD, Derrick was conversing with a particular woman who came for a session, Nancy Seifer. Nancy was researching and writing an article about 'the new kids' for her website whenthesoulawakens.org and in her words,
"This past summer I decided to learn more about 'the new kids' and what they might signify in terms of the predicted birth of a new era at a higher a higher turn of the evolutionary spiral. After reading the few books I had collected, my research took an unexpected turn. Two awakened souls magically appeared on my path. Derrick Quinn and Andrea Stormes (one Indigo and one Crystal child by their own estimation) graciously agreed to be interviewed for an article about the reality of these new paradigm kids. Their stories, insights and perceptionsform the substance of this report."
To set the context of when this interview (link @ end of post) took place, at this point in our journey, Derrick and I were living at his family home in western PA for about a year and a half. We began traveling once a month for about 2 days offering Lights sessions, earning just enough money to cover our most basic needs. The rest of our time was spent in seclusion.

It is very common in advanced stages of a spiritual journey for the spiritual initiates to take periods of renunciation from the world and all normal things associated with living in the world. One is essentially in hermitage with God, surrendering deeply and essentially allowing (or resisting) parts of yourself to die, which while painful, retrieves and rebirths new parts of the Self.
While these practices of renunciation are quite common in Eastern traditions, in America where ambition and productivity are glamorized and worshipped, the decision and undertaking is often perceived as an extreme taboo and met with some form of resistance or backlash from the friends, family, and community of the renunciate.
Fortunately, through many decades of devoted meditation, Derrick's parents had enough insight into this stage of spiritual development to accept, honor and nurture our choice of stepping out of the world. Their support during those 5 years led to the cultivation of an inner richness beyond description.
The depths of the implications of surrendering so deeply are vast. We were confronted with deeply embedded subconscious wounds, a part of us from our birth inheritance into this 3D world. We cleared and cleared, transmuting that within our consciousness, within our bodies, as an offering to ourselves, the world, and the collective.

During this time we used highly advanced Vedic principles of surrender combined with each of our already advanced capacities for Light. This is something that a soul earns through positive karma (over lifetimes) and fierce loyalty to Divinity Itself. When Andrea and I combined our already advanced capacities for Light, the implications of that unification were profound and beyond belief to modern styles of thinking and what is commonly considered to be within the realms of belief and what is possible.
And this state, this realm, this space is where we lived, and this is how we lived (and how WE LIVE) every second of every day 24/7 RELENTLESS CLEARING, to advance our own consciousness, to stretch the bodies' capacities to hold Light, and to assist the evolution of the planet as a whole.
Believe it or not, this is where we lived and what we did. And for all intents and purposes are still doing on a more effective and efficient level from where we began.
We've shared this article, only with Derrick's parents and a young awakening client. And as I (Andrea) write this, I feel a tinge, a wincing in the body, something more to clear, something more to Love...
