an of Light
is a very interesting read - for the spiritually minded as well as those who are not. It is the story of Mauricio Panisset, a unique '
', who was born and spent most of his life in Brazil. There
is as commonplace as is seeking healing from alternate sources (such as chiropractic medicine) in North America. Mauricio's healing powers apparently manifested though
that appeared when he was around, and/or emanated directly from his body. For most of his adult life, he healed the spiritually and the physically ill.
is story is told in a warm, lighthearted manner, as seen through the eyes of his wife who clearly adored her husband, eventually worked with him, and who still continues his work through her spiritual center. The book does a great job of mixing the spiritual phenomena that encompassed their lives with a view into their very special personal relationship. The author shares with us many anecdotes from their family life, that remind us that all human beings, no matter their path, go through tough times, frustrations, uncertainties and fear, along with moments of great joy.
t is clear, without a doubt, that the love they shared together, as well as the joy his
brought them, greatly outweighed anything else. Kimberly recounts stories of Mauricio's experiences, beginning with the lights
him in a forest for the first time when he was just nine years old, to sitting on a hilltop waiting for
' to appear, to their last '
'. It is all told in a very matter of fact way. You are able to realize the impact that the '
' had on Mauricio as well as the other participants, but at the same time feel their humanness.
auricio was very well respected within the
world and made many, many friends wherever he went. Apparently love emanated form his whole being and those who either saw or participated in his sessions had life changing experiences. He was also criticized by many; even some who had attended his
the lights were still skeptical of his powers. The author explains that this did not bother him, as his
had helped so many, and that was what he ultimately cared about.
Man of Light
is a delightful easy read, and certainly an eye opener to the '
' unknown to most.
