Dr. Eric Pearl is a chiropractor, a healer and teacher, and author of The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself (Hay House Inc., 2001). He was in New Orleans last month and talked with us about energy healing and The Reconnection.
Dr. Eric Pearl's favorite phrase is "I don't know." He uses it often when answering questions about reconnection healing. Pearl left a successful private chiropractic practice in Los Angeles to travel the world teaching people how to use energy to heal a range of diseases and conditions. He doesn't know exactly why it works, though scientific studies show it does, but Pearl is certain reconnection healing does work — and that almost anyone can learn how to heal others and themselves.
"Three of the most important words we can put together are 'I don't know,'" Pearl says. "We're trained to believe we have to know. When we say, 'I don't know' over and over again until we're comfortable with it, we can really grow."
Pearl says "The Reconnection" differs from traditional energy work because it involves the trio of energy, light and information. Practitioners use their hands — usually held several inches above the patient — to deliver a bandwidth of vibrational frequencies carrying corrective information to that person's body.
Gary Schwartz and his team of researchers at the University of Arizona's Human Energy Systems Laboratory have performed six controlled experiments that substantiated the electromagnetic transference during a healing session. The frequencies create coherence and order in the body, according to Dr. William Tiller, a professor emeritus at Stanford, who measured huge energy surges in rooms where reconnection workshops were in session. UK brain researcher Dr. Richard Hansbury observed that when patients received reconnection energy during EEGs, their brainwaves organized into states of peak performance. These and other results have led researchers to refer to reconnection healing as "information medicine."
Schwartz conducted research that showed the frequencies and light transmitted during reconnection healing can change DNA. "We have research showing the DNA of both humans and plants becomes modified, restructured or, as I like to say, reconnected," Pearl says. "It raises the level of light we emit as human beings; light plays a very important part in healing. ... Our healing techniques have all the subsets of energy."
Pearl says a healing doesn't work the same on everyone. Some people need more than one session and some patients don't feel the full effects immediately. However, most "results tend to work instantly and last a lifetime," Pearl says.
"We're accessing something that has always existed in the universe but has not existed for us before. ... It's the perfect intelligence of the universe telling the body how to heal."
He's seen great success in patients with a range of conditions including AIDS, cancer, scoliosis, cerebral palsy and even bunions. His explanation of reconnection healing can get very philosophical and metaphysical, but it's backed up by results and science. In his book The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself, which has been published in 36 languages, Pearl goes into detail about his awakening to reconnection healing and how he learned to pass it on to others. It also has instructions for performing a reconnection. Through the book and a series of seminars/workshops scheduled on six continents, Pearl has taught more than 60,000 people. (He teaches reconnection healing to children, and has a program for healing animals as well, and he hopes to conduct workshops within the prison system.)
"I believe that I'm here to teach this consciousness to as many people as possible," says Pearl, who held a workshop in New Orleans last month and plans another in 2012. "Hopefully this work will become known to virtually every person on the planet. I hope to make it become better known than Coca-Cola. ... Hopefully one day we won't have to teach it. You will be able to just sit next to somebody (and pass on the energy)."
