Tim Emerson started working with energy healing in the early 80s and quickly found himself surrounded by spiritual friends and partners. He met medium June Burke through friends and had a reading with the seraph Julian. He travelled to meet and work with NYC psychic healer Elizabeth Stratton. He learned yoga, studied T’ai Chi with master T.T. Liang, taught at the Delphi Healing Arts Center, and studied the power of sound healing.
But it was the work of L.A. chiropractor Eric Pearl that really brought light work home for Tim. In 1993, Dr. Pearl’s patients started reporting that they had felt his hands, even though he hadn’t touched them, and shared that they saw other people in the room who weren’t physically there. His patients soon reported receiving miraculous healings from cancers, AIDS-related diseases, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, birth disfigurements, cerebral palsy and other serious afflictions. And then he realized this could be taught. His story is told in his book, published in 36 languages, “The Reconnection: Heal Yourself, Heal Others.”
A spiritual friend’s experience of overwhelming positive good feeling got Tim interested in trying “The Reconnection.” When he did, he felt intense energy, and then a gentle but firm hand on his stomach, steadying him. There was a golden cord going through his body to his spine. A large hand wrapped around the base of his spine, and another grasped the cord, and the hands pulled down on his spine and up on the cord, hard, very hard, while the hand steadying me held me down. He felt a flood of good feeling, and the pain in his back from degenerative disc disease was gone. A few months later, at an annual physical, his doctor confirmed by reflex test what had seemed impossible—no signs of degenerative disc disease.
A few months later, Tim went through Level I/II training (Reconnective Healing) and Level III training (The Reconnection), and started doing local sessions. The results were immediate and surprising. His clients were relieved of asthma, months long abdominal pain, severe muscle fatigue, migraines, and even recovered from head trauma doctors expected would never heal. Like Dr. Pearl’s patients, Tim’s clients sometimes shared spiritual experiences from their sessions, from feeling like they had been touched to seeing others who weren’t physically present. They also shared emotional healings, from feeling inundated with positive thoughts to working their way through painful experiences with divorce and childhood abuse to finding their PTSD had calmed. Clients also asked for help getting through quitting addictions and in raising the positive vibration in a room or home needing healing.
In The Reconnection, which is more about life path than healing per se, clients found a new confidence, while those in poor situations found those situations abruptly ending and new, better ones emerging. With these experiences behind him, Tim moved from working informally to starting Kwan Yin Healing to bring these services to a wider range of people who otherwise would not be aware solutions exist to their physical, emotional, and even spiritual challenges.
His forthcoming book,
“Getting Unstuck,” discusses how people
often feel trapped in their circumstances—and that’s not necessarily true. Whether at the mercy of the economy, or jobs
they feel they can’t leave, or creative pursuits they’re rather follow,
practical solutions exist. Why isn’t the
Law of Attraction working? How can we
understand this in practical, not mystical terms? Trapped in addiction? Tim shares my own experience and ways
out. Trouble grasping a spiritual
path? Tim shares his journey and offers
practical tools. Why aren’t relationships
working? There are some insights here
too. In short, how do we heal our lives
so they are the happy, joyous, and free celebrations they are meant to be? It’s easier than we think. In fact, it’s our natural state. The book will be available probably late this
year.Tim lives out in the
country in central New York State, where his dog and two cats enjoy three and a
half acres of forest land he planted himself.
He also planted extensive fruit and nut trees, vineyards, berries, and
vegetable gardens. This summer he’s
building a passive solar/partially earth-sheltered home that will have near
zero energy costs, as well as taking advantage of the beautiful views and
outdoor lighting. He continues to teach
professional writing and music, and he plans more books and workshops in the
