About Reconnective Healing

In 1993, the American chiropractor Dr. Eric Pearl discovered and developed the healing method Reconnective Healing. Reconnective Healing is right after Hair Balancing my favorite type of healing practice and I enjoy several refresher sessions per year. Reconnective Healing is similar to Hair Balancing and Gemstone Comb therapy in that the actual healing work takes place in the aura of the patient. The energy frequencies transmitted through the therapist’s hand movements, through drawing of lines in the field, placing the hands on the person towards the end of the session and through eye contact are programmed to activate the self-healing abilities of the individual.

My family and I have experienced many different forms of healing and upliftment through this method. To get started I recommend Dr. Pearls book The Reconnection especially because reading this book has already a reconnecting effect. Reconnective Healing practitioners offer Reconnective healing sessions and there are two special sessions following each other closely called The Reconnection. During those two sessions the individual’s energy field is aligned with the energy field of the earth and the universe. I will always cherish the memory of my then nine-year-old daughter, as she jumped of the massage table after her second Reconnection session. She ran around the table several times as fast as she could, radiating, laughing as if her aura was all of a sudden free of old armors. That was the moment when she changed from a more introverted personality to an extraverted one.

In the book Bringers of the Dawn Barbara Marciniak channels messages from the Pleiadians, the star people in the Hawai’ian huna tradition. They refer to very similar healing methods, where frequencies and vibrations are used to activate self-healing and the connection with one another. The Gemstone Combs are connected to the teaching of the Pleiadians in that they are supportive tools with the same intention of healing and increasing frequencies.

On my friend Keala’s site you find more information and testimonials. She also offers long distance treatments.

8 Degrees of Sustainability

Lately I am thinking a lot about sustainability and what it means. What repeatedly comes to my mind before anything else is recycling. Perhaps this is because we recycled long before the term sustainable became popular. But sustainability is so much more, especially since it starts long before we actually recycle what we purchased.

The other day at a party a woman asked me what I was doing and I said I work with people’s hair in a sustainable and holistic way. I cut hair, I write, teach and research. She asked back whether that meant that I was making wigs. She was a former hairdresser and then went back to college and acquired a B.A. in social work. I was pretty stunned. That experience taught me that sustainability is still a new concept and term for many and especially in regards to hair.

In order to manage the theme of sustainability I like to use a scale from -10 to +10. From the worst possibly pollution and destruction over cigarette buds tossed out of the car window to a state of ignorance and unknowingness at Zero and then starting at +1 with first thoughts and actions in regards to recycling and consumerism.

A lot of us are on the path of increasing sustainability in our daily and professional lives. During conversations I often hear people express that they wish they could and would do more and I sense their guilt and pressure.  I am doing what I can one step at a time. Guilt and pressure are not emotional sustainable or life-affirming. That’s where the concept of the various degrees comes in handy, at least fore me. For many of us perfectionists  it is important to let go of the idea that +9 or +10 are attainable in this world right now unless we would completely live off the grid. Another example of an impossible goal in that vein would be to live 100% vegan. One would have to stop bicycling as the tires contain animal by-products, to name just one of many examples.

I am living towards a +8 and I am having fun with it. I try finding solutions, and wonder for example why not all product labels peel off easily and if it is more sustainable to recycle the glass or to wash it out with lots of water. Yet, when I have all my food stored in glass although I only did maybe a +2 action towards sustainability at least I feel like a 10!
