Read with an open "heart"!
on June 15, 1998
The subject of this book will resonate differently with a variety of readers. Some will reject the theories presented as preposterous. But, for those who have experienced this "heart" connection it will be the "aha!" or "yes!" that makes sense to their own experience. As unusual as it sounds to hear the language of the body used, as Pearsall does, to describe this heart to heart dialogue, the heart metaphor is a language that has been used to communicate love and human relations throughout the ages. Those who know the power of prayer and of letting go will have an easy time following Pearsall's logic. For those who have doubts, Pearsall adds the science of quantum physics and bell's theorem to validate his claims. His proposition is that the heart has a code and each cell is imprinted with memories. He goes further to say that the heart (not the brain) is the link between mind, body and spirit. He supports his L-energy theory (or fifth force) with research results, ancient wisdom, examples from his own practice and personal experience. This book will turn off some readers who take a scientific approach to medicine (and life), but to those who can get beyond the "white coat" approach to healing and human relations, this book offers a thought provoking alternative. I urge all to consider reading this book (and beginning to use its wisdom) with a "heart" open to the incredible possibilities that it suggests!
