Then there is the not so well known story of our potted lemon tree!
This lemon had never really been happy with its life in a pot. Its leaves would turn yellow and it would try to produce way too many flowers and fruit in a last ditch attempt to procreate before it was too late.
So, while enjoying the starry sky or early sunrise, I’d often give the tree some Reconnective Healing.
Now the thing about doing healing is that the client is asked to close their eyes and simply notice whatever they notice while the practitioner forgets their embarrassment and waves their hands around their body feeling for particular sensations, noticing any registers in the client.
Trees are different. Unless you’re gifted with psychic vision (which I have not experienced since the early 70s of my hippie days) you won’t see the plant’s aura/bioluminescence/light respond.
And if your wife gets up unexpectedly early and “catches” you in the garden healing your lemon tree, you might feel somewhat embarrassed. As I did.
However, while doing this I started to notice things about that tree. One was that it might need a different kind of fertilizer, another that it had a few scale insects hiding under the new leaves and also that its excess flowers could be pinched out.
Surprisingly simple as it is, this is how our tree “got healed.” It reminds me of Eric Pearl’s suggestion to become one with the patient and heal yourself.
Sometimes our healing includes reconnecting with valuable things or lessons we’ve forgotten - which makes Reconnective Healing the perfect complimentary therapy. (Except it’s not a therapy.)
It also reminds me of some of the changes I experienced on discovering The Reconnection: connecting with family and friends more, changing my career, reading books I never would have considered, opening up to other points of view, meeting new people and even getting messages from angels!
So that lemon tree experience is teaching me about reconnecting on all levels, new and known; sometimes just forgotten.
Such is the case with using EM or Effective Microorganisms or EM Technologies and also with rediscovering Permaculture.
