Research physicist and founder of her own school, Brennan is a leading New Age healer. She provides here a useful introduction to the scientific background behind her laying-on-of-hands technique. Brennan offers an explanation of her healing perspective and its use in conjunction with medical therapy, the stages and importance of self-care, and healing relationships through auric field interaction and higher spiritual realities. She encourages taking personal responsibility for one's health through a holistic approach and consultation with nontraditional specialists as well as a physician. This self-help book may become a New Age classic. Highly recommended.

Brennan instructs on how to work with the "human energy field," which involves the seven chakras and the aura, to cure various physical and emotional problems. Readers searching for ways of healing that go beyond the orthodox will be best able to use this book and because Brennan's discussion is long and involved, at once fascinating and confusing, it may well attract the most devoted anyway. Despite a nod from Bernie Siegel, and evidence throughout that Brennan's methods can be effective, discussions of how people "grow cords" that obstruct relationships or why you should soak used jewelry in saltwater to destroy negative energy are sure to have skeptics shaking their heads. Brennan is not only a therapist and healer, but also a former research scientist for NASA, which would seem to lend her credibility. This title follows her popular Hands of Light (1988).

It would definitely be useful for a person who is dealing with chronic illness and who is in
need of help in negotiating energy beliefs with modern medicine. I would recommend it to
anyone who is in this kind of system and is looking for a way in which to mediate between two
very distinct worlds.
I didn't find it as useful for my own healing journey, as I am not particularly ill, nor dealing
with medical doctors very often.
But the far larger problem is Ms. Brennans "discoveries" of new levels of energies, new psychic centers, etc. Her background and standing as scientist is toted in large types, but any hint of scientific method is completely lacking. Is it not strange that omniscient yogis with an ancient heritage in energy science like Lahiri Mahasaya and Ramana Maharshi have not discovered these levels that Ms. Brennan delivers without divulging how she arrived at her conclusion, from a far lower level of consciousness than her predecessors, as far as I can see? There is an openness to accept healing within the framework of health services. But if healers choose the religious approach instead of the scientific, they must do so openly and honestly. Stating her personal views in the name of scientific method, as Brennan does, is a fundamental disservice to the development of a true healing community. A good example of the reverse is "The tibetan book of living and dying", where the approach is humble and the claims modest, but where Sogyal Rinpoche succeeds brilliantly in outlining a practical approach for dealing with the dying. I recommend you buy Rinpoche`s book instead of wasting your money on "Light emerging", as I did.

probably the best healing book out there other than "Hands of Light"Published 12 months ago by simon clutterbuck
Dr Brennan used to be working for NASA as a physicist and also has a gift for seeing the energy field around people. She's excellent in explaining how the energy works.Published on June 5 2013 by Danielle
This book was everything I hoped for following my reading of Hands of Light. Barbara Brennan is inspiring and her books are a must-have for any energy workers/healers.Published on Dec 20 2010 by Josh
I enjoyed this 2nd offering from Barbara, primarily because of the effective use of illustrations-esp. those showing how people can manipulate on an energetic level. Read morePublished on July 16 2004 by Jaye Beldo
This book defiantly adds to Barbara's first book 'Hands of Light', but as her being a scientist I ask myself where's the science in this book? Read morePublished on July 5 2003 by Scott Knudsen
