Somebody can be. And it’s my pleasure. ~ Ben Ralston

I did a presentation in Zagreb on Friday night. I presented Reference Point Therapy (my healing  work), and I did a very public healing demonstration.

The 3rd level course of RPT is called Mastering the Miraculous.

Since I took that course in November 2009 I’ve been able to master miracles. Literally.

And tonight was a beautiful example of that.

First of all – who has ever heard of a ‘healer’ claiming to have the “fastest, most efficient healing technique in the world”.

Secondly, who ever had the balls to prove that claim with a public demonstration?

Well actually, there are a bunch of us RPT teachers doing just that; I’m not the only one…

So on Friday evening, in the beautiful central Library of Zagreb, I asked for a show of hands in the audience: who wants to heal something, right now..?

5/6 people put their hands up.

I asked each of them what the problem that they wanted to heal was.

Then I intuitively chose the one I thought most suited a public demo. (Not too complex a problem, easy to ‘measure’ a change after the healing).

The woman I chose had a ‘calcified’ shoulder. Along with medical diagnosis, long-term (2 year) problem, and chronic pain.

Before the session – pain was fairly low: she measured it as 2 /10 whilst standing; 4/10 whilst moving the arm up and down.

Mobility in the shoulder was clearly impaired.

The woman said that sometimes the pain was so bad it made her cry.

I asked her a few questions:

When did the pain start?

What else was happening in her life around that time?

We ‘felt into’ the pain. A childhood memory came up to do with being abandoned.

I healed the feelings, the subconscious associations, and the ancestral trauma that caused it all. I also healed it for all of us that were present, and humanity as a whole, because it was an issue that I know is relevant for many people today.

Afterwards, when I asked her to move her arm, there was no pain. Full mobility. She cried with gratitude and gave me one of the sweetest hugs.

There was a medical doctor in the audience who was utterly gobsmacked. She signed up for both RPT courses Level 1 and 2 on the spot.

And when I came home I had an email that read something like this (I’ll paraphrase, because the sender’s English was hard to understand):

Dear Ben

I was on presentation of Reference point therapy in (Zagreb).

Not sure if somebody can (be healed) just by being


but I feel relief (like somebody understand me)

It feels like silence and you can’t describe it with words.

Thank you very much”

    This is a copy of the email I got from the woman that was the volunteer Friday:
    "Hello dear Ben,
    W O W !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    That was something !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    First of all thank you for your acknowledge, for your acceptance of my entire being, for giving me support
    (I felt very protected and safe in your presence), thank you for holding me there in the moments of
    fear and for your gentleness, for your unconditional love I felt from you, for bringing the light to everyone
    on the presentation, thank you for the healing hug :)..
    And for much, much more but I can't express it in the terms of poorly language :)..
    P.S. Sorry for my English, trying my best.. 🙂
    Hugs and love to you and your familly,

  2. I was there and I know the medical doctor. She's general practitioner in private practice with holistic approach in her work. She likes to learn new skills. I don't thik she was "gobsmacked" 🙂

    It was great presentation and nice demo. Keep on healing.

    She looked pretty 'gobsmacked' to me, but ok, you know her better 🙂

  4. This is magnificent! And makes me all the more excited about the possibility of RPT training. I have had many massage practice clients have an emotional release (crying, etc) on my table…it is amazing how everything we experience is so present in our bodies.

  5. Ben_Ralston says:

    RPT takes things to a new level (literally, in fact). The emotions are held in the body by survival instincts. With RPT we have the tool to unlock the survival instincts that cause us to hold on to those emotions. So whereas very often when someone has an emotional release, they actually feel a *temporary* benefit… when we release the survival instincts, the emotions shift too, and the shift is *permanent*. It's amazing.

  6. If EJ is looking to up their editorial standards, they could start by disallowing puff pieces like this one.

  7. Ben_Ralston says:

    "Which means you've got to get yourself out of the way to allow that Light to work."
    That's an old lie that many healers (i'm guessing yourself included) believe, and it limits your work.

    Get out of the way for the light to work? You are the light, and your client is the light. Consciousness itself is light. What else is it that you think is the light?! If you understand this you will work miracles. Until then you'll remain frustrated (and angry with me without really understanding why).

    With love, Ben

    Care to elaborate on what exactly you find puffy, Mr Duff McDuffee?


    "Puff piece or fluff piece is an idiom for a journalistic form of puffery; an article or story of exaggerating praise that often ignores or downplays opposing viewpoints or evidence to the contrary."

    Example: "I’ve been able to master miracles. Literally."

  10. Ben_Ralston says:

    Well, offer me 'evidence to the contrary' and I'll not downplay it. But your 'evidence' is simply your skeptical belief that miracles are not possible, right?

    What a crock of self-congratulatory BS. Another ad posing as a article. There need to be a disclaimer on posts like this like that have in the legit media ie This Is An Advertisement.

    That will never happen. EJ is all about the traffic.
