What is Reconnective Healing?
Reconnective Healing is a form of healing that is here on the planet for the very first time. It reconnects us to the fullness of the universe as it reconnects us to the fullness of our beings and of who we are. It is considered to be able to reconnect us to the universe and to our very essence not just through a new set of healing frequencies, but through possibly an entirely new bandwidth. The reality of its existence has demonstrated itself clearly in practice as well as in science laboratories.
The Reconnection is the umbrella process of reconnecting to the universe, which allows Reconnective Healing to take place. These healings and evolutionary frequencies are of a new bandwidth brought in via a spectrum of light and information. It is through The Reconnection that we are able to interact with these new levels of light and information, and it is through these new levels of light and information that we are able to reconnect. This is something new. This is different. This is real—and it can be entrained in each of us.
How did Eric Pearl discover Reconnective Healing?
As a doctor, Eric ran a highly successful chiropractic practice for 12 years until one day when patients began reporting that they felt his hands on them—even though he hadn’t physically touched them. Patients soon reported seeing angels and receiving miraculous Healings from cancers, AIDS-related diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, birth disfigurements, cerebral palsy, and other serious afflictions. All this occurred when Eric simply held his hands near them. And to this day, it continues.
How does it differ from the other forms of energy work used now?
There is something that we’re experiencing of which most of you are at least somewhat aware. It’s that time seems to be moving faster as well as expanding. This transition is referred to by many names. “The Shift” and “Shift of the Ages” are two terms used by Gregg Braden. The transition was predicted by the Mayans, the Incas, the Hopi, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, and the Kabbalah (both Jewish and Christian). In Walking Between the Worlds, Braden defines this shift as “both a time in Earth history as well as an experience of human consciousness. Defined by the convergence of decreasing planetary magnetics and increasing planetary frequency upon a point in time, the Shift of the Ages, or simply, The Shift, represents a rare opportunity of collectively repatterning the expression of human consciousness. The Shift is the term applied to the process of Earth accelerating through a course of evolutionary change, with the human species linked, by choice, to the electromagnetic fields of Earth, following suit through a process of cellular change.”
In the healing realm, many of the techniques that have stood the test of time function just as well now as they always did—it’s just that we now have more, and we now are more, so the old techniques are no longer enough. As good as they always were, within our new, expanded parameters, they are no longer appropriate—just as lanterns would not be appropriate as headlights on a car, although, for a horse and buggy, they functioned just fine. The weaknesses these techniques are subject to—requiring the removal of jewelry, the removal of leather, faith on the part of the recipient, protection rituals for both parties involved—are not present in the new frequencies.
Remember, too, why many of us who have been practicing healing techniques got involved with them in the first place. It wasn’t to become a fanatical follower for the technique itself—it was to become a healer. The technique was simply one of our early steps in this process.
For a moment, picture yourself standing at the foot of a grand, cascading staircase. One of your goals—that of becoming a healer—awaits you at the top. Your first step is to learn a technique. You throw yourself into this technique, mastering it, maybe even becoming a teacher. You now own this first step. It’s okay to love it, but be careful not to fall in love with it. Because if you do, you’ll sit down, grab a blanket and pillow, move in, and make this step the center of the rest of your life. But what does that mean about the remainder of your journey up the staircase? It stops. Now is the time to bless your first steps . . . and continue upward.
Is this better than the other healing modalities?
Of course not. This is not a question of “better or worse,” this is a question of appropriateness. Just as you realize that if you’re driving your Maserati on the Autobahn on your way to a romantic dinner, candle-lit lanterns would not make appropriate headlights, you probably also realize that, once you sit down to dine, halogen headlights would not make the most appropriate table lighting. Reconnective Healing is here now to give us something more comprehensive and expansive because now is the time that we can have something more comprehensive and expansive.
Does Reconnective Healing work on physical or mental problems?
Healing is a return to balance. Every health challenge is a combination of the physical, mental, spiritual, emotional (and probably a few other classifications we don’t have words for). We simply classify it according to its predominate characteristic. Reconnective Healing doesn’t specifically “treat” anything. If in its presence you allow yourself to come back into balance, as many people do, then you do. You just do.You just do.
What can I expect during a Reconnection Healing or Reconnection?
Everyone’s experience with Reconnective Healing is unique. Often healings are reported in an instant in just one session, and sometimes it takes a bit longer for a healing to unfold. If you’re lucky, your healing will come in the form you anticipated; if you’re really lucky, your healing will come in a form you haven’t even thought of, one that the universe has in mind specifically for you.
Healings can come in all forms. The best way to allow for a healing is to proceed in a state of expectancy, without expectation or attachment. Place yourself on the table, relax, close your eyes and simply notice. Observe. Become both the observer and the observed.
Be in a relaxed atmosphere, lie down on your back on a massage table or whatever other comfortable arrangement you’ve decided on, close your eyes and notice. Just notice. Withdraw your participatory thought process and simply observe when there’s something to notice, as well as when there’s nothing to notice; lie there and let go, as if you simply had a little unexpected rest time.
I wouldn’t suggest that you try to make your mind a blank or try to think of nothing. As a rule, people have trouble with the concept of thinking of nothing. The mind is always going. I suggest that you simply notice whatever it is that brings itself to your attention. This gives you something to do and has a tendency to alleviate the stress often encountered when trying to think of nothing and finding that you don’t know how. Place your attention inside your body and allow it to travel through you. Observing whatever you perceive as out of the ordinary will give you enough to occupy your mind without your getting lost in mental “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts.”
Don’t breathe a special way, don’t visualize relaxing scenes or a desired result, don’t meditate or repeat mantras, silently or otherwise, and don’t “do” anything else that I haven’t mentioned that you or someone else thinks will “help.” It won’t. It will simply bring about what you’re able to do on your own and interfere with you being able to enjoy the fullness and the reality of the experience. And if that’s the case, you may as well stay home. When you’re ready to let go and not attempt to “direct” or enhance the experience, when your ego is out of the way sufficiently so you don’t attempt to “gild the lily,” you’re ready to experience what makes Reconnective Healing different, what makes The Reconnection real.
You’re ready to receive.
What is it that I’m feeling when I’m doing this?
In a sense, and not really wanting to use such a “woo-woo” sounding word, it’s an attunement. And, once we begin to understand concepts of vibration and entrainment, we see that attunement is a perfectly appropriate term. Think about it in terms of the effects of this attunement. Say you were born color blind, unable to distinguish blue from red from yellow. Then something happens to your eyes, and the color-receptive cells kick in. Can you imagine? Suddenly a whole new realm of perception comes to life for you.
In Reconnective Healing, a similar event occurs. As we attune (come into harmony) with the new frequencies of energy, we begin to feel changes inside our own body. The vibrations will register within us and become part of us. Being able to recognize these sensations is an important aspect of learning to work with the frequencies, just as being able to see colors is helpful to a painter. Please remember that it is not a requirement. Although the feedback imparted through this ability is of great benefit to the honing of our skills, there are blind painters and deaf musicians. Feedback systems will develop for you in their own way, out of a place of peace and stillness. The entrainment, the alignment of forces and fields, the communication of light and information, will come about and will most likely find a way to make itself known to you.
How will I know this attunement has taken place for me?
You’re already in the process of undergoing these changes. The changes are occurring in you right now. For many, it’s an a priori conclusion that this process of attunement is encoding and unfolding in you even as you read this Q & A. For others, you most likely are, or are about to be, discovering it.
In my experience, there are three main “styles” by which people make this attunement, this shift to accommodate the new frequencies:
You may notice changes in yourself almost from the beginning—new sensations of warmth, a strange feeling in your head or hands when you first hear about The Reconnection, or see the book in a store.
For others, your process may begin after you pick up the book and hold it, or open it and start reading. You may begin to notice things happening as you read the book – or these FAQ’s – further and further. Immersed in the material, your sensations become more and more apparent.
A few of you may not feel anything until a little later on—three days, three weeks, maybe longer.
Finally, there is a fourth “style”—the manifestor. This is a person who develops tiny blisters or experiences inexplicable bleeding, as I did at one point in my own development. If this happens, it only seems to last for a day or two, and simply means that your body is shifting to carry and accommodate these newer and larger (more comprehensive) frequencies.
How many sessions will I need and how long are they?
One visit—perhaps even part of one visit—may be plenty. Generally it is recommended that you consider up to three sessions. And, although each session is special, often something particularly special tends to be reported about session number three.
Healings occur in an instant. What takes “time” is for the person to “decide” to accept the healing. If you receive everything you’re looking for by your first, second or third session, it’s time to let go and allow things to unfold on their own. If you don’t receive anything by your third session, Reconnective Healing may not be the appropriate way for you to receive what you’re looking for at this time in your life. Again, you may want to let go and allow whatever might unfold to do so. You may choose to return in three, six, maybe even eighteen months. The only time I might consider a few more sessions is either: a) if a new situation arises for you; or b) if you’ve been experiencing clear, recognizable, consistent improvement over the first three visits and it looks as if there’s a little more to go. At that point, I might consider a few more sessions. After that, I would again let go and allow it time to unfold. Reconnective Healing is not about regular visits or “touch-ups.” You do not need to come in for “weekly” sessions or on any kind of an “ongoing” basis. Once you have your session(s), you “own” your change, your healing, your evolution. It’s yours. No one can take it away from you. Ever.
