I’ve enjoyed this book quite a bit. I wasn’t expecting to, as a lot of the books, guides and journals written about “new-age” or alternative healing methods are fairly dry, and fact oriented. This is not really conducive to learning something new, in my opinion.

Mr. Batie has presented several methods for healing within the book, from Healing Touch to Reiki. One of the items that sparked my interest was the information he gives on Ro-Hun therapy. I had heard of this method occasionally, and although it’s not one of the methods I’m currently interested in, it is something I have had on my mind to learn at a later date.

The book contains descriptions of basics such as what the Human Energy Field is, what the Universal Energy Field is, the levels of energies perceived and not perceived by the human eye (auras, etc) and the chakras. Mr. Batie has included the theory behind the practice of several methods, including the nature of healing energy.

Quote from page 14 – The Nature of Healing Energy – paragraph 1
“A number of very interesting studies and carefully controlled experiments have been conducted to determine the nature of the healing energies exhibited by healer’s hands. These studies have provided strong evidence to suggest that healing energy is magnetic in nature, as opposed to the electrical evidence exhibited by the physical body. We are all familiar with the electroencephalograph (EEG), which measures the minute electrical currents within the brain, and the electrocardiogram (EKG), which measures the minute electrical currents within the heart and other body tissues. But only since the development of the ultrasensitive magnetic field detector called a SQUID (Super-conducting QUantum Interference Device) has it been possible to measure and document the intensity of the magnetic field emitted by a healer’s hands.”

Mr. Batie goes on to document other studies, and then gives exercises for the practice of building healing energy. The book covers how to heal the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies of the human being, all with concise informative back up in research.

To top it off, Mr. Batie has included several ideas and documents to help the Energetic Healer start a practice in helping others.

Well done, Mr. Batie. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to review your work, and hope to read more from you in the future. I highly suggest this book to all of my readers, and those just beginning on the path of energetic healing.
