The Reconnection

Questioning the Conventional Paradigm of Healing

This past summer, NBC Bay Area did a segment on The Reconnection. We are delighted that mainstream media is taking an interest in the phenomenon of spontaneous healing, and we are grateful for all the time and effort that the news team put into covering this story. As you will see in the clip below, this segment opens the conversation about whether it is possible to heal in ways that fall outside of conventional means like pharmaceutical and surgical remedies.

While those in the world of alternative medicine may balk at the undertone of disbelief in the clip, we understand and encourage a dose of healthy skepticism. It is true that the alternative health world is primarily unregulated. While this freedom allows one to explore the possibilities of health outside of a rigid model, and while we believe that freedom is a good thing, it also can backfire when practitioners make false claims – which in turn can exploit patients who are desperate for a cure and willing to pay anything for it.

We get it.

The key, we believe, is developing the power of discernment – utilizing one’s intelligence, intuition, and inquiry, to verify whether a claim is true. In addition, we believe that one must use this power of discernment not only when it comes to the holistic health industry but also when it comes to conventional medicine, which has its own trappings of false promises and financial exploitations.

As part of our new blog launch, we are springboarding off this NBC clip — panning the lens wider and taking this conversation deeper, through posing the following three questions for discussion:

  1. What is healing?
  2. What is the litmus test for knowing that a treatment is effective?
  3. How can you tell if a healer is authentic?
We would love to know your thoughts on these matters, and we will be blogging about these topics over the coming weeks.

    Dr. Pearl,

    I am grateful you are using this platform to expand the discussion about Reconnective Healing and encouraging the skeptics to use their own discernment.

    Love and Gratitude,

    After many years of suffering my healing was not overnight, is also continuing, however I have had constant improvements, considering how normal gp just want to shove prescriptions onto you! as they have targets to meet! cant get rid of you quick enough if you dear question them! I am positive most conventional medical people are feeling threatened as more people are turning to natural remedies. With longer lasting positive results. WITHOUT the side effects

    Healing looks like a journey into the distant past and back to the future, while healing we are stepping into finding out who we are… Healing is the joy of creation, the moment when the raindrops merge with the ocean … the moment when a raindrop extends into the ocean….

    It’s so vital just to get the truth of energy healing to as many people as possible so all will know that we are all energy healers, and so this interview is invaluable in that way. Viewers who are ready will respond. Hopefully, other healers and energy workers will also be interviewed, and obviously, people who have been healed by you and them, or by themselves, energetically.

    If NBC is going to state that healings have been claimed, why didn’t they talk to the people who have been healed? And their doctors? The piece is unsatisfactory in that way. Poor follow up on the part of the network and the whole report is based on hearsay.

    I think the questioning is great! Media attention will bring more and more of the truth to light. I’d love to see some main stream media types interview some of the scientist who have researched this! It’s a start or rather a restart in the states. Good to see.

    I am Sarah Ziegler and I never went to any seminar of “The Reconnection”, but I have made my own exploration according health and being in balance. I experienced through light and soft movements, Yoga and Ayurveda, that you can heal yourself. For me is health a balance between body, mind and soul, too. And when I move and massage people, I discovered great things, the movements get softer, lighter and the body got more relaxed through less movements.
    After a couple of this experiences, I got inspired of the twin heart meditation and I used this energy to make positive shifts in others. People got really happy after my massage and movements, I think it does not matter how you call your way to be there for others, your intentions towards anybody are important. My intentions are love and that is the most important thing in life. Love has the strongest power to make a different in your own life and others. Love brings my soul, body and mind in balance. It is more worth as any chocolate box. I think we do need more people, who like to share their own creative being with others and the base of it is love, patience and acceptance.
    When I am truly in the moment I am happy, because I did share my love.

    El doctor Eric Pearl en estos años ha dedicado su tiempo a ser el profesor que se sentó en un peldaño de la escalera de sus metas con un cojín y una manta (la que tanto critico en su propio libro)

      Hola Rodrigo,

      Las criticas de la gente, siempre que sean constructivas y sin ánimo de tachar el nombre de nadie, son buenas., Pero para los que no estamos enterados del porqué, ¿le importaría elaborar? ¿Por qué dice Ud. que el Dr. Pearl “se sentó en un peldaño de la escalera de sus metas con un cojín y una manta”?

      No he asistido a ningún semanario del Dr. Pearl (por motivos económicos) pero me parece muy bien lo que hace. Le veo activo y trabajando. Desde luego, desde mi punto de vista, no le veo “sentado” como Ud. le describe.

    An honest healer is open about what he is doing and what he knows about it. He doesn’t feel the need to defend himself or falls into traps designed by aggressive media attack.

    Don’t listen to this nonsense; let them count how much money you make, let them talk about you; this is your “MARKETING”.
    Continue doing your job, people love that you have to offer, so THIS PART is the most important. They are talking about regulations….my advice is to ignore it, and if possible in a future avoid this kind of interviews (this is your choice). Refuse to give an interview if you suspect or have intuition that they are going to talk about how much money you make or that RECONNECTIVE HEALING hasn’t been regulated.
    Please be strong and continue doing your job. Remember always how many people around this world grateful to you, this is priceless.
    Thank you :-) :-) :-)

    In laymen’s terms Healing is an improvement (subtle or drastic or complete) of an ailment to the point where the sufferer feels better or complete again.

    With regards to Litmus test – With RH both the practitioner and the client feels, experiences, knows that something has happened. One might not be able to put it into words, but true reflection on the session quickens the heartbeat again, brings the experience back and strengthens the knowing. For both parties – there is no need of proof.

    Authenticity is something that shines through from within – it is reflected by the practitioner and FELT by the client. One cannot prove authenticity or intention – one can only prove results. When the intention is sincere, GOD draws near – it just is so.

    I have a “healthy does of skepticism” about what passes for “investigative reporting” these days. A college student could have learned what she’s gathered here with a few phone calls. Yet, the key point, her doubt about healing, was never investigated–what about the people healed of far more than the ability to raise their arms over their heads? Surely they’d have been happy to share. But that she never covers–and that would have been meaningful reporting.

    About the first question “What is healing?”, I think the healing must be a complete body experience, not just with the physical body but with the mental, emotional and spiritual body. That´s what Reconective healing does instead of making the convencional medicine.

  15. Cindy Okumura

    When I attend the Level I/II & III seminar I was overly delighted to see that this is NOT a “cult” with crazy people looking to find the next fad and guru. I met physicians, psychologists, people from NASA, educators, scientists, etc. When I chatted with people I found that we all have a common thread in that we are all compelled to do this work. It’s sad that the media carefully orchestrates the stories they would like us to hear. They may try a releasing a story on the actual research.

  16. Theresa

    December 14, 2012

    I agree with Tim. I think the interview was short sited. I was referred to a Reconnective Healing Practitioner by my M.D., and had a dramatic healing after two sessions. The exhaustion I had been experiencing for over a year completed lifted and my sleep improved. Nothing I had tried previously to RH (including alternative and convention treatments) worked or had lasting results. It is important to note that results vary and depend on the person, and may look different than what the client anticipates. For instance, someone can be dying and have a healing that allows them to reconcile with a family member and pass more peacefully. Were they cured? No. Did they have a healing? Yes.

    Healing is a return to balance and restores us to a place of wholeness. We may have the “cure” we want, as I did or our healing may look completely different. Fortunately, there are many physicians who now support alternative medicine. I am grateful mine does!

  17. Alexandra Mundt

    December 15, 2012

    I like the questions!
    Healing for me is an underlying force in life that brings you back to source, where there is only wholeness. Everything you encounter in life is meant to heal you. There is no random effect, no coincidence. An underlying loving force guides you gently back.
    Problem: we do not always remember, struggle and want to go into another direction. That´s when we feel, it is not gentle at all…and maybe even not for our best. It´s about to learn to trust in this source again.
    What I like about reconnective healing is, that you just do this. Connect to the source and trust.
    There are no “techniques” or “regulations” to live a life either.
    And the source will help you. It will always help, but the more you trust, the more it helps. At least that´s my experience.
    Is there a litmus test for a successful healing ? I don´t think so. This would mean, that we could know the meaning of everything and that´s not possible.
    An authentic healer: I think the more you trust in the source the more you become authentic. So at least that could be some kind of litmus test for a healer! (-:
    Thank you.

    Healing is a personal fact during our life and is very difficult to explain to others what happened. Sometimes there are some clear evidences (x-rays … etc) before and after the healing…AND still there are people that don’t believe the results…like in the NBC film above…The hands of the person were positioned differently than at the end, so it was easier…. :))) If that person doesn’t believe the results then i would expect MORE in depth investigation by NBC of the healed person and look for evidence….Don’t look on an ipad the healing session and have a conclusion. GO IN THE SEMINAR, if you are sure for your self. Don’t spread the doubts and then you stop the investigations…If NBC wants to be HONEST with ALL of us FINISH your investigation… you might LEARN something NEW that medicines have limits… :). OTHERWISE you have MADE a HOLE in the DEEP WATER…. ERIC pls ignore them and CONTINUE WHAT YOU ARE DOING BECAUSE YOU BRING LIGHT INTO THIS PLANET… :)

    Once you own these frequencies, there is no turning back. You begin to evolve in unimaginable ways, connecting you to the Divine within. It truly is possible to experience heaven on earh, even during these accelerated days of chaos. All answers are within us to discover. I believe that those who discredit this work are being kept at a lower frequency. To bring in the issue of greed is frequency control…fear, lack and limitation. Love, light, prosperity, oneness, wholeness, knowingness, Divine beings of love and light with dignity, purpose and direction all go against frequency control! Prepare for the chaos to come and keep bringing light to all who will let you! We can make a difference! We are co-creators of our future. As a species, we will either evolve or face extinction. There are many who are assisting us. We are so much more powerful than we could ever imagine!

    I was introduced to Reconnective Healing many years before I had a shift that allowed me to be open to the possibility of it being real. The Universe kept working though to create the perfect environment for me to finally be accepting of the possibility of healing.

    In 5 short months, I have not only experienced incredible healings of mind, body, & soul, but have also had the honor of becoming a practitioner so that I may also share this modality of healing with friends & family.

    I firmly believe, that when the Universe says the time is right for the individual, their shift will come and the skepticism will fade just as mine did.

    Hi Eric, perhaps you may please request Professor Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama to conduct scientific research into the science of The Reconnective Healing if you plans to have any future R&D programs.

  23. Saravanan

    December 27, 2012

    Hi Eric, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama established California Institute for Human Science – Graduate School & Research Center.
    Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, a well-known Japanese scholar, is both a scientist trained in empirical methodology and a psychic who has experientially gained deep philosophical knowledge. He is the head Shinto priest of the Tamamitsu Shrine in Tokyo, and a yogi well-versed in the yoga treatises. Dr. Motoyama established CIHS in the belief that this project is important for the realization of a global society – one which will require individuals with mental and spiritual development.

    Eric is giving his gift of experience to those who dare to discover. If the seminars were free, who would pay for the hire of halls equipment , staff etc. etc. that is in part what the attendee is paying for. A poor interview when money instead of the actual benefits of healing could have been portrayed

    I think that it will be a underfull think to learn every people on this planet how to heal his/hers own wounds.
    It sounds possible too, if you think in terms of cells and atoms and energi.
    Everything makes sense when Eric speaks and what he writes, but I do not understand the money thing….
    If he realy means well and wants to heal the world, why charging so much money for everything.
    Just this one ting makes me think that he is not really sincere.
    I hope someone has an answer to my reflection.
    I wish you all a wonderfull day! :)

    I am brand new to this. Just finished my second reading of Dr. Pearl’s book. I have to tell you that my experiences with these frequencies surprised the dickens out of me. After finishing the book for the first time I wanted it to be true but absolutely did not believe any of it. I bought the book because I saw Dr. Pearl on the Dr. Oz show, thought it was pretty interesting and I like Dr. Oz . I have had some pretty amazing feelings and reactions. What amazes me is why has no one mentioned the incredible feeling of happiness you experience? I can’t be the only one! Sometimes I am in tears just because I am so amazingly happy. I burst into song, I don’t have an “illness”, I do have severe allergies but have adapted and manage well. I have the normal aches and pains that come with age. I don’t know if any of this will change but I really don’t care! When the thought comes to me that this “energy” will always be a part of me, I just get this great big grin & dance around the room.

    Dr. Eric Pearl and The Reconnection is true. I have a lot of experiences of people who feel the energy, feel the frequencies and many other things. The people that practice this healing knows that something happend…. The people that don´t know nothing about this they couldn´t talk about it. If you feel The Reconnection you can have an opinion.

    I firmly believe in it, this is an incredible healing….. This is real and many people could talk about it….
    So, if you want to experience something different …take a change and feel it…. you are going to change your mind. Nine years ago I never talk about this, but right now i believe in healing.

    Feel it…

    i completed the Reconnective Healing level 1 and 2 a week ago and started working on my clients. During the seminar i noticed the rush on both of my hands, exactly the same as Dr.Pearl described in his book. it is spreading to my upper arms and I am not sure how to treat it. It is 85 degrees here in NYC and I have ware long sleeves to cover it up.
    I wonder if anyone else had similar symptoms.
    I love doing the REcconective healing sessions because it changes me into a better person.

    There are more things in heaven and earth than you can imagine. Of course healing can happen in many different ways. Our brains have the power to bring healing to the body and healing to the soul happen on a level not measurable. Once connected and in health we radiate that wellness to others in our field and begin the process of healing the planet.

    My wife and I have had our reconnective healing energies activated in May, in Miami. Being of a rather ripe middle age we have a couple of persistent health issues. After the seminar the only obvious sign of improvement was a rather sudden rejuvenation of a practically dead phone battery – now it lasts 3-4 days on one charge instead of 3-4 hours previously. We are trying our best to concentrate on whatever the Universe thinks is best for us – not what we think. We’re combining self healing with doing it to each other. We’re putting this BLIP on everything.
    However it goes, we’re taking the level III comes November.

    My wife and I just got reconnected. We decided to do it at the same time and while we weren’t skeptics we also weren’t believers going in. We each did a healing session first, just to see what happened – a week later we called her back and made an appointment to get reconnected. I think that says all that needs to be said about what happened.

    I’d suggest that these ‘investigative’ reporters get reconnected as part of their ‘investigation’ – “If you haven’t tried it don’t knock it” and as the other side of that coin states – “seeing is believing”. We saw – we believe.

    Its been two month since my wife and I have had our reconnection activated at the seminar in Miami. I’ve had some modicum of success with it with my wife and myself. Bigger, more ingrained problems, haven’t however showed any inclination to yield yet. Not that we aren’t persistent either. A headache or an acute ache somewhere are no match for this energy, but… There was at least one almost miraculous healing however – before going to the reconnection seminar we had a half-dead phone battery that had to be recharged twice daily. Since our return it lasts at least four days now!
    I believe I am doing it the way that was explained to me. Perhaps not everybody can become a success in this field.
    I intend to go get my Reconnection soon, perhaps I’ll see some improvements afterwards.
    I am not bitter – just a tad disappointed. Some folks I know could stand a good healing.

    I find it the regular canned media hype in the material universe, in regards to this. I find it interesting that for all the “let’s get spiritual, better, yoga, whatever the practice,…”, there seem to always be this snardy small return to ‘show me the money – it’s unregulated! ( politics) yada yada! Well, how are you going to regulate unseen energies/spirit, etc? It is not ‘material’, although the ending phenom very well might be, but one watches bad news interviews, and gets that for all we want better things, it just might be too simple to look at or work with the next level up – that which you can’t see, but maybe feel or pick up. I feel sorry for those SO fixated on the heavy solid seeable fixed boundries (it’s money! It’s politics! it’s a scam! It’s dog eat dog!” of the material universe. They must be terrified of closing their eyes, even. Don’t dare have an experience outside their heads… So the interview from the news side is just the devil’s advocate canned media hype. For those willing to look beyond, no matter what happens, they will expand their awareness. And besides, all you wussy consumer groups, it isn’t YOUR decision, or right to render judgement. I think it is a personal thing, and healthier in the long run to spend time of the street entertaining a “You can do something about it, yourself” – then to go and drink, buy drugs, or vid games or play at soap operas.For anyone who is intensely curious about this, or feels an answering recognition, (because you did do something similar once, or had your own experience,, congratulations to acting on more of your wonder, than the lizard/limbic brain mentality. And you will probably NOT be doing it first and foremost for the money either – but because you can create a change that betters a condition, either your own, or someone’s else. The news is often focused at the lowest common denominator – and it is very much a let’s tell you the gory stories and how terrible the world is, and why you should be afraid or angry…. So, listen, be a good material-bodied citizen on one hand, but ALWAYS dare to dream and reach. Always. No one says you can’t do or have both.

    The interviewer implies deception and exploitation all the way through, eventually calling for “consumer protection”. Consumer Protection is the great deception because it already failed to save hundreds of millions from the insidious damages and death from sodium fluoride and other pesticides; also chemical fertilizers, plus heavy metals, plus the synthetic toxins peddled on behalf of Big Pharma, plus the toxic fall-out from unnecessary fossil fuels. Mainstream media perpetuates widespread sickness, hostility and other misery by ensuring its viewers remain sufficiently mis-informed and also un-informed. This is why they are collapsing and it can’t happen fast enough, in my opinion.

    I experienced 5 fantastic days! I have completed the Reconnective Healing Seminar in London Level 1/2 and the Reconnection. I felt a positive shift with my perception since Friday night. After the introduction I couldn’t sleep at night because of too much energy circulating into my body plus I had burning sensation in my hands and feet . On Saturday morning before I went to the seminar I realized I had shifted my perception in positive way . Thank you! LOVE

    Am so excited about joining the Reconnection Family!

    Just went through Recon 1&2 Level. Felt a great warmth from the head to middle torso when a TA, came by. I think he
    was from Venezuela and a lovely kind man.

    I have experienced something similar to B. Pianese. Have felt the movement of something around the palms and when
    doing some circle motions with the index finger, could actually feel the circles in parts of the body. One friend’s arthritis
    has disappeared after I did one session on her arm, which has been pain free for about three weeks.

    However,my buldging disc on L5 – S1 region is still in pain and the sciatica still comes and goes every day every few hours.
    I am perplexed and wonder if Reconn has helped anyone with chronic back issues .
    I am till faithful to doing the work on my body and on friends as I suspect it will grow to help us.
