Natural Awakenings San Diego

The Legitimacy of Healing

Aug 29, 2014 10:34AM ● By Dianna Bensch

Think about a world where healthcare has no adverse side effects. Where we experience no pain during or after healthcare procedures. Picture a world where our children look at us and ask incredulously, “Did people really used to swallow poisons to try to get well?” We have become so desensitized by our no-pain-no-gain attitudes that the onslaught of elective surgeries and pharmaceutical commercials letting us know that their newest pill may cause “severe stomach aches” or result in “sudden death” don’t even cause us to bat an eye.

But mention the word “healer” to someone and it can induce responses anywhere from eye-rolling to images of flowing robes, crystals, incense and wands to inappropriate and reactive displays of anger and self-righteous indignation resembling road rage during rush hour traffic on a hot summer’s day. We understand that the body heals itself. A cast on a broken ankle allows it to be protected while the bone heals itself! Yet mention the word “healing” outside of a mainstream medical context and it’s as if the sky is falling. There is much more for us to discover in relation to our health that has so far eluded the grasp of mainstream conservative Western medicine. Thankfully Western medicine is beginning to open their eyes to this as newer generations take over and more discoveries are made in quantum physics as to how the body really heals.

Dr. Eric PearlLeading expert in the healing world, Dr. Eric Pearl, is helping to legitimize new forms of health practices and reestablish the word healing as a true health term, returning it to its rightful place in today’s healthcare lexicon. Pearl is the founder of Reconnective Healing, an advanced level of energy healthcare, and the author of the international bestseller The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself. He travels worldwide educating healing practitioners of all fields in the art, science and philosophy of Reconnective Healing.

Dr. Pearl is bringing the science back into healing, working with the medical community and conducting clinical studies with quantifiable results. Newer scientific understandings and concepts of quantum physics such as string theory, DNA evolution and the discovery not only of new levels of light, but that we as human beings actually emit measurable levels of light, show us that we affect the health of one another without even physically touching each other.

Reconnective HealingIn his book The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself, Dr. Pearl talks about string theory and how energy, light and frequencies are closely tied to our senses and perception, to our states of balance and, therefore, to our states of health. Pearl writes: “String theory proposes that the shape and content of the entire universe is determined by vibrational frequencies in the heart of every single atom, every single particle. The effects of vibration go far beyond what our senses are easily able to distinguish.” For example, the force that makes a magnet stick to your refrigerator is the same one that enables you to see the contents of the refrigerator when you open the door at night: electromagnetism. The only difference between magnetism and visible light is the frequency of the energy’s wave motion.

In his seminars around the world, Dr. Pearl teaches attendees how to facilitate healings not only for themselves, but for others. And he teaches it in the clearest, easiest and simplest way imaginable. Wrapping one’s brain around these concepts can be daunting and many in the medical community would rather stick to what they have been taught in older textbooks and leave the “mad” science—today’s new understandings— to the geeks. But science marches forward. There is a much closer connection than we may think between what we know about atoms and subatomic particles, light waves the universe and our health.  As doctors learn to see the human body both as connected to and an integral part of the universe, progress is being made.

Reconnective HealingIt is clear that an important shift in the health industry is taking place that includes more and more types of alternative health practices. It has already begun with the medical community’s growing interest in and attention to ideas they formerly would have ignored. At national health summits, we are now seeing practitioners of many healthcare disciplines on the same level as leading medical doctors. Alternative, complementary and integrative medicine has been replaced by complementary, alternative and integrative healthcare. Who knows, one day maybe the science geeks, the men and women of spirituality and the cool doctors will sit together at the same lunch table and see each other for what they really are—people healing people.
