When I hear the word Catalyst, for some reason, my mind has always gone to a catalytic converter in a car. I am not a mechanic, so I find it a bit curious that I have been shown this correlation.
A Catalytic converter is indeed an automotive device. The way we use the term ‘Catalyst’ in RH is only superficially related.
a) A substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent change;
b) A person or thing that precipitates an event
To me, the Reconnective Healing Catalyst Converter is a means to reduce toxic energy and pollutants from our internal combustion into less toxic pollutants by catalyzing an interaction with the energy, light and information of the Reconnective Healing Frequencies.
... Too funny! Not exactly how Dr. Pearl would describe it, but that’s how my mind works. Now on to my Catalyst experience.
Dr. Pearl describes a Catalyst as an accelerator for healing in all areas of your life. Being a catalyst in RH is first based upon being in a state of receivership. The frequencies act as a conduit for the energy, light and information of Reconnective Healing and someone trained in Reconnective Healing acts as the Catalyst.
Almost four years ago I stepped into the Live Immersion Training, what was known then as the Level II training for Reconnective Healing. I have written hundreds of stories about my experiences since my training. But curiously enough, I have never written about those days, hours, minutes and seconds during the training. I love to tell a good story, and my experience was extraordinary, so why have I not written about it?
What was it about that experience that makes it hard for me to express it in verbal, let alone written form? I am of the belief that true transformation happens on multiple levels of our consciousness, physicality and our spirituality. So many things were going on inside and outside of me that I have never tried to articulate what that was like. Today I have decided to allow myself the grace to delve into the absolutely “crazy cray” world of my Live Immersion or Level II training, what today is called the Reconnective Healing Catalyst Experience.
Buckle your seat belts while I take you on the whirligig ride of my inner Knowing.
My Reconnective Healing Catalyst (Level II) Training Experience:
This morning, during my morning quiet contemplation, I asked my higher self to give me a view of what transpired during my Catalyst Training, this is what I heard. “You became a Multi-sensory Being.” I understand what that means for me, but I decided to add an excerpt to support your understanding.
“The multi-sensory individual understands that there is another kind of power, that has its roots in the deepest source of our being. This is authentic power. The evolution from the five-sensory human to the multi-sensory human is the evolution to see beyond the physical reality to the larger dynamical systems of which our physical reality is only a part.
The multi-sensory human is able to perceive, and to appreciate, the role that our physical reality plays in a larger picture of evolution, and the dynamics by which our physical reality is created and sustained. It is in this invisible realm that the origins of our deepest values are found. This is where our authentic power lies.” - THE SEAT OF THE SOUL, by Gary Zukav
My old self walked into that training at a time I was I was fully focused on my career as a Medical Practice Administrator. I had previously studied self-healing practices and different types of energy healing but had done so for personal and spiritual growth. I had not imagined myself making a living on an energy healer’s salary. I was a methodical administrator where rules, regulations and limitations were a part of my everyday life. During this time, I was truly in a state of dichotomy. I was hungry for an expansive spiritual life, but I was constricted by the constructs of the career I had chosen. Little did I know that the simple but complex act of walking through those doors was about to blow the way I had been experiencing life out of the water!
In November of 2015, I had a Reconnective Healing Session, I can’t say that I had any bells or whistles go off, but I did experience a subtle shift. That shift had me listen to the audio version of Dr. Eric Pearl’s book, The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself. I sheepishly admit that I listened to that book about five times. I couldn’t get enough. Was it his melodic voice, the stories, or was there something else coming through which was compelling me to seek more? I now know that it was the Reconnective Healing Frequencies being transmitted through the words and his voice. I was being entrained... without even knowing what that meant.
As Eric walked out onto the stage, I was a little surprised. My first reaction was, “Oh, he’s just a man.” The melodic voice on the audiobook which had lured me to take time off from my job, skip out on my hubby for a week at the beach and spend money on a spiritual quest was just that of a man, and a “Hollywood Guy” at that. At that moment, I realized that I hadn’t even looked him up on YouTube or Googled him. I had simply gone with my instinct and followed the voice. Looking at him as a HUMAN was messing with my psyche. I could hardly stand it. What my earthly vision was showing me was not what my inner eye knew. This moment was the beginning of my ability to look past what I visually perceive, to SEE the energetic imprint behind the visual.
As the training unfolded, I began to notice a buzzing, humming, shrilling noise just beyond my awareness. Then my ears opened to the sounds of the room. I would hear someone whispering behind me, and in my very judgy and administrator manner, I would turn around to give “the shhhhh look...” only to realize that it was not the people seated behind me, but that it was coming from people seated 5-6-7 rows behind me. What? How can I hear every word of their whispers? Then I began to hear the Spanish interpretation of the training. Again, annoyed I began looking around for the culprit who had their earphones turned up too loudly. I couldn’t find them, nobody was seated in proximity to me with earphones on. I was at the front of the room, but I could hear the lady behind the soundproof screen at the very back of the room, as clearly as if she was speaking to me. These sound phenomenons continued throughout the weekend and strongly continue in my current day-to-day as I interact with the Reconnective Healing Frequencies.
The training I attended was in Miami Beach, Florida, at a hotel with beachfront access. I am an early riser, so I would get up, go to a little Cuban café, grab the most amazing café con leche and empanada and head for the beach to watch the sunrise. I felt like I was one of the angels from the movie City of Angels. As I sat there immersed in the glory and beauty of our planet and the extreme yumminess of my coffee and empanada, I experienced the most amazing feeling of connectedness. My taste buds were delighted not just by the food and drink but by the smells and taste of the sunrise. Can you taste a sunrise? I did. And I still can recall its flavor. Truly divine.
As I wrote that last part, I became acutely aware of a crucial aspect of my experience. I had allowed myself the time and space to absorb my new understandings. By leaving my home in the Midwest and going to Florida for the training, I was given the grace to be completely immersed in the incoming information and experiences without being distracted by my everyday life.
TOUCH & OTHER SENSATIONS:
During the training, we spent many hours at the massage tables cultivating our new understanding of the frequencies. For me, this was a very new and exciting adventure. Coming from where I was as an administrator to now watching, sensing and witnessing the table interactions was thrilling. But I have to admit that I was feeling defeated and left out because I had yet to “feel” the frequencies. I was acting ‘as if,’ going along with the instructions, but I wasn’t feeling anything, nada, zip. Then the JOY of the frequencies engulfed me.
One of the training interactions is where one participant lies on the table, and the other participant, in the role of the ‘practitioner,’ continuously moves further and further away from the table while remaining engaged with the frequencies. The practitioner continues to move further away while a third person indicates whether the person on the table is showing registers (visible involuntary movements or signs of interaction with the frequencies).
It was now my turn to act the part of the practitioner: the keyword to me here was “act.” The participant (my ‘client’) lying on the massage table was a beautiful dark-haired lady. I had seen her many times during the weekend and her beauty and elegance had struck me. I had surmised that she must be in media, entertainment or that she was a model. She was exquisitely put together at all times. Her shiny black hair was always pulled back into a perfect ponytail highlighting the sheen of her ebony locks. Now, lying on the massage table, she looked like she was ready for a photo shoot.
As the practitioner, I did as I was instructed to do: I began to ‘pull’ or ‘stretch’ the Reconnective Healing frequencies increasing in distance away from her. Remember, I did not feel a thing; I had no idea what I was doing. I was simply following instructions. What began to happen to this elegantly pristine model still makes me giggle today. There on the table, her body started to contort as if I were pulling strings connected to her body. She had become, in a sense, a marionette I was playing with. I could not believe what I was seeing. The farther I moved away, the more she contorted. I burst out laughing, and so did she. We were both in awe and the tickly space of joy. My first frequency sensation was an intense sense of joy. Now when I moved further away, the joy would rush throughout my body. I did get a few “SHHHHH” looks, but I could not contain my joy. I had exploded into the fullness of the sensation. This sensation of joy has never left me. Whenever I facilitate a Reconnective Healing Session, I am always met by the frequencies with a surge of sheer joy.
The purr that sounded like a roar, or was it a roar that felt like a purr... It’s hard for me to distinguish if it was the words or the vibrational presence of that woman that moved me. Who was that woman?
I realized that I have been searching for a female leader, mentor or embodiment of the truths that lie deep within me. I have been on this quest for most of my life without having an actual mental knowing that I was. For a very long time, I didn’t have words or a mental picture of what those truths were; there just has always been a knowing that there is something more, something deeper, something more significant and that there is a loving truth vibrating through our existence that I did not have words to explain. Since I was a young girl, this knowing has had me steadfast in my spiritual pursuit.
I have read a ton of books, listened to a gazillion podcasts, YouTubes and public presentations presented by some very powerful and insightful women, but until my attendance at the Catalyst Training for The Reconnection, I had not felt like I had found the embodiment of my truths or my Knowing. Remember, I said earlier that I didn’t even have words for what those truths were, but I knew that those words needed to be summoned forward.
Then I heard the roar, or was it the gentle purr, of a woman who possessed my dormant words and knowing. I don’t know how she entered the room; I didn’t see her come in. Was she teleported in? Did she fly in on a magic carpet or did she appear out of the essence of the vibration of the room in which I was sitting? I don’t know, but there she was sashaying down the aisle in the most exquisite outfit I have ever seen. I can’t even remember what color it was, maybe emerald green or deep blue, I am just not sure. But I do know that it, and she were stunning. Her presence was so very powerful, almost palpable. Maybe it was the roar of her words, or was it the gentle purr of her vibration. I don’t know, but she had my FULL attention.
As she began to speak, I realized she had my words. My logical mind did not understand half of what she was saying, but my whole essence knew that I knew that I knew she was speaking, and at the same time summoning my words, my Knowing, from way deep down inside. Who was she? Why was she here? I don’t remember reading about her. That lovely lady who I now know as Madam Jillian Fleer, the Head of Insight and Development of The Reconnection. In collaboration with Dr. Eric Pearl, she oversees the direction and vision for The Reconnection and The Reconnective Healing global community, and has become the female leader, mentor or embodiment of the truths that lie deep within.
After a while, I realized that she had to be a co-presenter. I don’t think she was introduced; she just appeared and seemed to possess the other side of Eric’s brain. He would say something and then she would respond with a clarification or a deeper exploration of the idea. As I often do, I was mesmerized by their interactions, their body language and the energy flowing between them. Are they agreeing? Are they disagreeing? Is she here to keep him in line? Do they like each other? I’m not sure. What is her role? She seems to be the quality control person... I hear a lot of clarifications. My mind was having a heyday, trying to figure out the dynamics of the presentation, their relationship and if they were even human.
The End... or was it my Beginning?
On the last day of my 3-day experience, there was a part of the seminar that I was not yet ready to embrace. Jillian was on the stage alone, presenting. She was talking about sharing this healing approach, something that I may or may not be ready to do. If I decide to become a practitioner, a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner, I would need to know how to talk about the work in a casual setting. I didn’t want to know this; I didn’t want to embrace this part. I was having a hard enough time explaining to myself and my husband why I was attending this training and what purpose it would have in my life. Again, remember that my words and my truth were a sleeping lion, lying just below the surface. When Jillain asked for a volunteer to come up to practice a scenario, I was dumbfounded when my hand flew up as if reaching for the sky. And she, of course... picked me. I didn’t want to role-play a scenario; I just wanted to sit by her. How absolutely silly is that statement, but it’s the truth. Somehow I knew (or my inner knowing knew) that I wanted what she had; I wanted to embody the knowing, the joy, the light, the power of her roar, and the vibration of her purr. Maybe if I sat by her, I somehow would be infected by whatever it was that she had.
So I sat with her and played the part, pretending that we were in a dentist's office waiting room, that she was a terrified patient, and I calmed her with my words and then introduced the Reconnective Healing frequencies to her by demonstrating how tangible they were in her hands. What she didn’t know was that I was a Medical Practice Administrator with 27 years of experience of calming terrified patients. That part was innate, but I was yet to feel the frequencies myself, so I pretended that I did as I demonstrated and shared with her.
The rest is history. I went home, left my career, and opened my Reconnective Healing Practice. I often thought of the lovely lady who appeared at my training but had no vision or illusion that I would ever speak to her again. A year after that training and my Personal Reconnection, I wrote a blog called A Year of Courage, depicting the immense personal, emotional, mental and spiritual growth that I had experienced since then. For some reason, I decided to cut and paste my words onto my application to become an ambassador for The Reconnection. My words made it to her!
I was in bed, thinking about my day, and my phone rang. The caller ID said California. Usually I would allow an unknown number to go to voicemail, but for some reason, I answered. It was her; it was that lady! She had read my words, and was telling ME that my words had moved HER! I don’t remember much else, I know I swore a few times (whoops, how unprofessional!), but I couldn’t contain my overwhelming surprise and disbelief. I did not tell her that she, Dr. Eric Pearl and, most importantly, the frequencies, had summoned those words.
The Catalyst (Level II) training profoundly changed my life. The frequency that I had yet to feel has now become a close friend who I sit with, walk with, talk with, dance with, write with and share with others each and every day. And that lovely lady, Madam Jillian Fleer, has become the female leader, mentor and embodiment of the truths that lie deep within. As always, I remain honored and blessed,
