They say that just holding it in your hands is sometimes all it takes to be affected by the energy – to begin to feel the frequencies.
The book. I’m talking about the book. Not THE BOOK –which granted has already changed my life, or shaped it to this point, but a more humble paperback which was to influence where I went from here – the next stage of the journey.
I didn’t actually have a physical copy of the book to hold in my hand. I had downloaded it from Kindle, remember, with an impulsive flick of my finger on the one-click setting. But that didn’t seem to matter. I COULD feel it. A slight, warm tingling at first that intensified to pin-pricks that indicated undeniably something akin to an electrical current was flowing in and through my body.
The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself tells the story of how Eric Pearl, a chiropractor in LA, began to feel similar sensations after receiving some form of quantum re-calibration from a gypsy woman he met on a beach. I’m not selling it very well, I know. You’re thinking it’s all a bit whacky-do. The point is, his patients began to experience cures. Incredible, miraculous cures. And rather than enhance his professional success, he began to lose clients. It all became a bit too strange. Indeed he knew himself he was dealing with something ‘off the scale’ which would take some re-adjustment on his part, and on the future direction his life would take.
I won’t go into more detail. You can read the book for yourself should you have a mind to. Suffice to say, that what he came to name “Reconnective Healing” is indeed a form of healing that appears to be newly accessible to us, and that anyone can learn.
Eric Pearl now dedicates his time to travelling the world, teaching others how to access these frequencies to facilitate healings.
What is most surprising to me is the ease with which I picked up these sensations just from reading the book. There is a section that instructs you on how to try it out at home on friends or family members.
Once again husband became guinea pig. As I let the palm of my hand float about four inches in front of his open palm I began to feel sharp pin-pricks randomly at different points on the surface area of my skin.
As I ‘hit on’ a sensation I stayed with it, refining and stretching, as I had read about and seen Eric demonstrate on the You Tube videos I had watched.
‘What do you feel?’ I ask.
‘A sort of breeze on the back of my hand,’ he replies. ‘And it feels as though it’s being pulled, like a magnet. It’s weird.’
Yes, it is weird. But very exciting.
A few days later our eight-year old son returned from school with a slight limp. He says he hurt his knee when he fell playing football. When he was still limping a day later I asked if I could try to heal him.
It was then I had the idea to test out one method of healing against the other.
First I ask him to sit on a stool (a white stool, it must be white). I go through the procedure of the King Technique. Now the full thing takes about thirty minutes, if you do it correctly, and I didn’t want to leave any bits out in case it wouldn’t work. (Even as I write this I realise how wrong it all sounds). Whereas some people might enjoy the hands-on focussed attention for a full half-hour, and regard it as quality time, eight-year old boys have a tendency to get restless and wriggle about.
He tells me he felt some heat from my hands, but his knee still hurts. I leave it a couple of hours before a second attempt using the hands-off Reconnective Healing approach.
This time it doesn’t matter where he sits, or what colour the chair is. In fact I ask him to lie down on the sofa, which he is quite happy to do.
There is no beginning ritual. No counting the number of sweeps in a certain direction. No visualising white light. So I can relax a bit. I have freedom to begin how I choose. Instinctively I raise my arms above his head, slightly to the side and kind of swoop into his field, a bit like a gentle big dipper motion. And there it is, the first ‘indicator’ – a little nip in my palm. I pause, stay with the sensation, circling it, pulling it higher. My son begins to respond. I notice his closed eyelids flicker slightly. Then I move slowly across his face. At his right shoulder I sense another ‘prick’, in the tip of my index finger this time. I move my hand so the sensation is localised in the centre of my palm. Then I rotate, stretch, ‘playing with it’ as Eric likes to say.
At this point my son gasps, and reaches down to touch his knee.
“Ooh… I felt something in my knee,” he says. “Like a little tickle.”
I wasn’t anywhere near his knee. And I was working on the left side of his body (at the other end) not the right.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Immediately I want to test it out. The book tells me a healing can be instantaneous – there doesn’t need to be a set length of time for sessions in order for a healing to ‘work’. So I ask him to get up and put some weight on it.
He does, and he can’t feel any pain.
He starts running around the room. Then he is out of the door and I don’t see him again until tea time. But there is no limp this time.
I feel uplifted and inspired.
This is more like it. This is natural, intuitive and I don’t feel compromised in any way by taking on new rituals or belief patterns.
I think this is it. This really is it.
I’ve found my Holy Grail.
