She is the author of and recording artist for the CD ‘Soul Journeys – Guided Meditations for Communicating with Your Angels & Guides” and is featured in the DVD film "2012 : The Sacred Union" which aired on Hawaii Public Television. In addition, Ana has authored and recorded several meditation CD's and lecture CD's on various topics related to Holistic Health, Spiritual Development, and Conscious Living In Times of Prophecy.
Rev. Jones is well known and sought after for being a modern mystic with great clarity in her intuitive abilities as a medium, clairvoyant, clairaudient, empath, and medical intuitive. Her daily ministry work includes very powerful healing work she has practiced since the age of 14, leading her to become a Reiki Master-Teacher in 1997. She trains and certifies people in Reiki Energy Healing and is a masterful teacher of multiple forms of healing arts.
Her passion for many years has been the study of ancient prophecy from spiritual traditions all over the world and how they unite with messages from modern mystics (such as ones that she herself has been receiving for many years). All of these messages and ancient prophecies seem to point to this time period (especially 1992-2013) as being a time of extraordinary change and transformation. Lead by Higher Power to dedicate her life to helping the Earth and All Earthkeepers during this time of prophecy, she is the co-developer of the ‘2012 Rite of Passage Program’ featured in Questing Spirit's 2006 retreat “Soul Journey To Machu Picchu.”
Rev. Jones has many years experience in organizing and/or leading spiritually focused events, retreats, gatherings, and sacred ceremonies. She has lead numerous retreats, large and small, since the early 1990's. Her background and noteworthy accomplishments include being the Executive Director/Minister for Earth Aware Hawaii in 2005, Co-Founder and President of the Higher Ground Holistic Community Center during the 1990's, and co-sponsor of the ‘Interfaith Chant for Peace’ Event in 1999 at the Washington Monument in Washington, DC.
She is regularly involved in doing whatever she can individually and by working with organizations to heal the divisions amongst people and bring about global peace through spiritual understanding and unity. It is clear to her that this healing first must start from within each person. Believing that sacred quests and pilgrimages are a vital part of this personal and planetary healing process she became the driving force behind the creation of Questing Spirit, LLC, and is currently the co-owner and director of this small business and its most recent project ‘The Studio ~ Center for Holistic Arts’ located in Honokaa, HI on the Hamakua Coast of The Big Island where she resides with her husband Phillip.
