I am an osteopath who has been in practice for 17 years. Each of our paths is different and I would never presume to question anyone else's work. What the author describes is, I assume, his experience.
My own journey has brought me to a place where much of what is described in this book is quite familiar. I experience it daily.
I found the first half of the book ( up to page 83 in the 2001 version that I have) unhelpful. This is the autobiographical aspect in which the author describes his own development. He tells us repeatedly that he has a special gift, that he was sought out [given this gift] because he is "a master," " we [entities who speak to him] have come because of your reputation." (p.70)
The author is very, very special. He spends almost one-third of the book reminding us of this. He is not just special; he is very special.
So much for the first part of the book, the personality.
However, the second half of the book is entirely different.
It contains many nuggets which, based on my own limited but practical experience I can say ring true.
He provides many guidelines and pearls ( please forgive the unintended pun) which will prove invaluable for anyone seriously interested in entering this path regardless of whatever level that may be.
His advice on dealing with clients, length of time, follow-up visits, mind states of the practitioner, and beliefs associated with such work are spot on.
It took me many years to learn much of this on my own.Read more ›
As for the latter part, where Pearl begins to interpret his experiences from his own personal point of view, this was where I came down to earth somewhat. I began to question his constant assertions that his healing method is supreme. Has he tested out all the others he dismisses so readily? I doubt it. How can you understand the essence of qigong, for example, without really practising it - a whole-of-life approach that requires the same kind of paradigm shift that Pearl claims for his own method. What is more, I have seen - even personally experienced - healings that have had none of the drama of his method, but which were just as remarkable.
Healing is universal. In Roger Jahnke's "The Healer Within" you will find an account of a young woman lying badly injured in a hospital bed, who quietly and unobtrusively healed her torn liver and spleen over forty-eight hours while waiting to be fit for surgery. (How? You'll need to read the book, but I can say here that she'd had no previous training or healing experience.) The point is that no one has the definitive answer to healing; neither does any one method take precedence over all others. (Were Pearl's objections really about the methods, or the way they are sometimes misused?) It is interesting to note that Christ used a wide variety of healing methods.Read more ›
Pearl's down-to-earth narrative, his self-effacing humor, and his iconoclastic views of many New Age techniques, methods, and healing rituals was welcome and refreshing. And, as strange as it sounds, I, too, like many others, have had the experience that my hands become warm just holding the book or thinking about the energy Pearl describes. In fact, for four nights following my reading of his book, I dreamed I was offering healing to others and my hands became hot as fire. So hot, that I woke up and my hands actually were hot and pulsating with an "energy" of some sort. This has never happened to me in a dream.
"The Reconnection" is not just a book; it's an experience. One of the best books on healing I've read, and I've read a ton. This is a must-read for anyone with even the slightest interest in healing or energy work.
