Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Research physicist and founder of her own school, Brennan is a leading New Age healer. She provides here a useful introduction to the scientific background behind her laying-on-of-hands technique. Brennan offers an explanation of her healing perspective and its use in conjunction with medical therapy, the stages and importance of self-care, and healing relationships through auric field interaction and higher spiritual realities. She encourages taking personal responsibility for one's health through a holistic approach and consultation with nontraditional specialists as well as a physician. This self-help book may become a New Age classic. Highly recommended.

From Booklist

Brennan instructs on how to work with the "human energy field," which involves the seven chakras and the aura, to cure various physical and emotional problems. Readers searching for ways of healing that go beyond the orthodox will be best able to use this book and because Brennan's discussion is long and involved, at once fascinating and confusing, it may well attract the most devoted anyway. Despite a nod from Bernie Siegel, and evidence throughout that Brennan's methods can be effective, discussions of how people "grow cords" that obstruct relationships or why you should soak used jewelry in saltwater to destroy negative energy are sure to have skeptics shaking their heads. Brennan is not only a therapist and healer, but also a former research scientist for NASA, which would seem to lend her credibility. This title follows her popular Hands of Light (1988).

Format: Paperback
This book throughly describes health and sickness and how the human aura reflects them. It also contains discussions on the hara and the core star, the holographic view of life, creating the healer-physician team, the different stages of healing, and in-depth discussions on how to heal through the seven levels of the human energy field. I liked this book because it always describes a positive approach to healing, no matter what the sickness may be. I was amazed to learn how the same health problem can holographically show in different areas on your life, visible and otherwise; and how this very truth itself determines the different areas in which the patient, along with him/her healer-physician team, need to work on. She describes how the healing of a physical sickness can bring wellness on the psychological and spiritual sides of the self; the reverse can also happen (psychological and spiritual healing can enhance the physicial well-being). There simply was nothing I disliked from this book. The author has written another book, "Hands of Light", her first book on the human aura, and it describes the human aura deeper but left out other areas described in this book, such as the hara and the core star.

Format: Paperback
I read Emerging Light with some high expectations, having read Hands of Light. This book was a dissapointment to me. It seems that Barbara followed the path of "I wrote one successful book, therefore I can cash in one the craze" that many authors do. There wasn't a lot of really relevant information here, though a few tidbits here and there. When she discusses the cords it didn't seems anywhere near as accurate as when Mark Rich writes about them in Energetic Anatomy. The part about the core star isn't anything I had ever heard of and didn't really resonate with me much. I think sticking with Hands of Light is probably a better idea.

Format: Paperback
I found "Light Emerging" to be a profoundly inspiring book. It delves into the complex relationships of our minds and our spirituality, to our physical bodies. But more importantly, it opens doors to new possibilities with regard to healing and self-awareness. I felt it explored and championed the idea of a team effort between physician, healer, and patient. This triumvirate is a terrific concept when you think about it; it addresses all aspects of the person--body, mind, and spirit, and it serves to give the patient a feeling of solidarity, of not being alone in their struggle for both their heart and health. And, it keeps the focus on how the two are interrelated. The book is positive, enlightening, and filled me with an overwhelming sense of hope. I highly recommend it.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Kathy W TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 31, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this book is most suited to the "healers". I am only part-way through it right now, but thoroughly agree with what I have read so far because I have either experienced it or it makes logical sense from where I am on my personal journey. The book is slow reading, not difficult, but slow if you really want to understand what Barbara has written as she combines science with metaphysical beliefs. I cannot compare this book to her first book because, although I purchased her first book years ago, I honestly have not read it yet. "Light Emerging" was recommended by my master teacher. Barbara has spent significant time studying the auric fields of people vs. behavior.

I plan to return to this review at a later time and update it with additional information, but I see it as a valuable resource for a healer (for both healing self and healing others). By the way, if you don't know it already, healing is not limited to the physical body. There is emotional healing and spiritual healing as well. ALL are important. The healthiest people are those who are balanced on all levels.

This 342-page book explains a lot about energy, both scientifically and metaphysically. If you have already done significant reading, this book expands on a lot of it, such as explaining the chakras and the movement of energy throughout the system. As Barbara goes through each chakra, she explains how you likely behave if that chakra is fully functioning or if it is blocked. Quite a few illustrations within the book visually show you the energy movements within people who exhibit certain types of behavior, and the movements of energy within groups of 2 people exchanging energies at certain levels.

I would say that this is the best book on healing I've found. This and Anodea Judith's "Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System As a Path to the Self" are the two books I'd start with for anyone interested in this topic. Best wishes for healing yourself and in this way, the world!

Format: Paperback
This book definitely adds to Barbara's first book 'Hands of Light', but as her being a scientist I ask myself where's the science in this book? She seems to just rely on her spirit guides for everything, even all the stuff she should and probably does know as a well educated person! Why all the push to get everyone involved in the New Age/Eastern Religion stuff and depending on what the spirits say for everything? Instead why not concentrate on teaching people how to do things on their own like Donna Eden does in her book Energy Medicine? If all Brennan's guides chanellings where left out of the book I would have added another star to it's rating.
