THE HEART'S CODE by Paul Pearsall

THE HEART'S CODE

Tapping the Wisdom and Power of Our Heart Energy

KIRKUS REVIEW

Pearsall, the prolific guru of self-help advice combining scientific theories with New Age spiritualism (Sexual Healing, 1994; Ten Laws of Lasting Love, 1993; etc.), finds evidence in the experiences of heart transplant recipients to support his claim that the heart thinks and the cells remember. Energy and information are one and the same, says Pearsall, who sees the heart as a generator of this “info-energy,” and the cells as storehouses of info-energetic memories. When a heart is transplanted, some “cardio-sensitive” recipients—the stories of five such people are told here—report recovery of these memories, which to Pearsall indicates they are tapping into the “L” (for life) energy of the donor. While the nature of “L” energy remains obscure, Pearsall offers some 20 different descriptions of this mysterious force, ranging from its speed (faster than the speed of light) to its visual manifestations (auras, spirals, etheric webs). By learning “cardio-contemplation,” he assures the reader, one can tune into one’s own heart and the coded information that is the human soul. Further, since hearts exchange information with other hearts, one can also become sensitive to the incoming “L” energy of other people’s hearts. Connecting to one’s own and to others— hearts is presented as the key to healing, happiness, and living and loving better. Pearsall provides a Heart Energy Amplitude Recognition Test and a Cardio-Sensitive Inventory for those who want to assess their likelihood of being able to listen to their heart’s code and even to tap into the collective unconscious. Lots of scientific jargon—there’s even a glossary of technical terms—to dress up a familiar New Age message about getting in touch with oneself and becoming one with the cosmos.
