Manifesting Michelangelo

The True Story of a Modern-Day Miracle--That May Make All Change Possible

About The Book

The True Story Behind Manifesting Michelangelo:

At the dawn of the new millennium, Joseph Pierce Farrell made a startling discovery that redefines what it means to be human and holds the potential to transform the world.

Having abandoned his childhood dream of a career in healthcare when he was a young man, he drifted into a humble job restoring antiques and furniture. Then one evening while working in his basement studio restoring the face of a church statue, he stumbled upon his discovery. Immersed in the meditative process of sculpting, he permitted his mind to dream with the unlimited imagination of a child, and he envisioned how wonderful it would be if he could restore a real child’s face with the same God-given artistry with which he was restoring the sculpture. In that moment, he experienced a brilliant blinding flash that ignited within him a remarkable power.

Since that transformative moment, he has realized the profound capacity to wield spirit, like a gifted sculptor wields tools, to restore the severely disfigured features on a young man’s face, virtually erase an inoperable brain tumor, and mend shattered bones in limbs —simply with intention and a profound connection to a higher source.

For nearly a decade, he has continued to demonstrate his gift in clinical settings under the supervision of medical doctors. Now endorsed by leading scientists and medical doctors, and supported by profound photos, Farrell’s body of evidence has served to construct a bridge to allow science and spirituality to heal their divide and advance the acceptance of the emerging integrative healthcare model. His discovery has the capacity to alter science, transform the face of healthcare and forever redefine the limits of human potential.

This unprecedented book chronicles Farrell’s journey of discovery and poignantly illustrates profound stories of human transformation. He outlines an easy-to-follow five step process that readers can use to ignite within themselves their own capacity to manifest change in their lives and chosen fields of endeavor.

Heralding a message of unlimited possibilities, Manifesting Michelangelo presents a compelling body of evidence that supports what science is now beginning to embrace, what the great artists have always known, and what spiritual traditions have long represented — that we all possess the capacity to manifest on the level of the miraculous. It is the first book, that asks us to believe—based not on faith alone, but on documented evidence—that we as a species have the capacity to literally manifest the change in the world that our conscience decrees and our hearts desire.


An Invitation

You have never heard of me. This is the true story of a person being born without the advantages of privilege, pedigree, or wealth who one day, with the undiminished imagination of a child, attempted the impossible and succeeded, and in doing so discovered a latent human potential that transformed his life.

The inheritance that we are all born with, the potential that resides beyond the perceptions of our five senses and the measure of science, if ignited, will empower you with the capacity to literally transform yourself, your life, and the world around you. It is my hope that this book will inspire you to embark on the Five Step path to ignite your sacred potential to manifest the life you were born to live.

Be not afraid, the path to realize your potential is not an intellectual pursuit. I was labeled an “underachiever” in school and was advised by my guidance counselor to set my goals “a bit lower” and to abandon my dreams. However, as you will soon read, my soul rebelled and had a different plan in store.

As I searched for the highest and best use for my life, I read the stories of the most beloved people throughout time, those individuals who have been placed in the pantheon of greatness by the citizenry. The names of Washington, Wilberforce, the Wright brothers, Gandhi, Mandela, King, Salk, and Parks all came to mind. As I read their stories, I realized that all of their journeys had five common steps.

They all looked around, seeing challenges, obstacles, and ignorance; decided to make a change; connected to a higher source; and acted; and their actions manifested in the world and became legend. Their legacies are gifts to humanity that have inspired people with gratitude for generations.

This book is my personal invitation to you. It was not written to awe you but to inspire you, to encourage each and every one of you to ignite that latent ember of potential that rests within you.

Now, perhaps more than at any time in history, the world needs inspired women, men, and children working in all fields if we are to overcome the challenges that confront humanity today. It is my hope that you will embark on the five-step path to ignite your great potential and manifest your own masterpiece for the benefit of yourself, your family, and your larger family, humanity.

Who knows? If you look around, decide to manifest a change, connect to a higher source, and then act, you may just find yourself sitting next to your peers in the pantheon of greatness!

—Joseph Pierce Farrell

The good that men do is small in amount
compared with what men and women bear locked
in their hearts . . . to unbind what is bound, to bring the underground waters to the surface, humanity is waiting and longing.

—Albert Schweitzer


When Joseph Pierce Farrell first approached me to write the foreword for this book, I was more than receptive for a number of reasons. First, I have come to recognize and respect Joseph as a visionary and bridge builder in the study of science and spirituality. One day, after having completed five surgeries, I picked up my wife and drove to a formal dinner being held in Manhattan in honor of a titled dignitary. Attending this party were leaders in politics, medicine, and science, in addition to European nobility.

I had heard about Joseph’s work months earlier from friends and colleagues who recommended that I meet him because of our similar areas of interest. I am a Georgetown University Medical School graduate who went on to become a board-certified urologist and have maintained an active clinical practice for twelve years. I initially chose to practice medicine because I felt it would be the highest and best way for me to help people. Within the Hippocratic Oath there are specific tenets pertaining to the ethical practice of medicine. Inherent in this agreement is the pledge to do no harm by way of sins of commission or omission. Given that, I am continually seeking efficacious modalities that can help my patients. Although practicing medicine is a noble pursuit, I became disenchanted when I found in it a bias and a focus in medicine that weighed heavily in favor of advancing certain areas at the expense of omitting other areas worthy of exploration. Propelled to discover alternatives, I found myself traveling in Asia and South America, where I encountered physicians and healthcare providers with a common goal to explore various modalities in the hope of finding efficacious techniques to complement modern clinical care.

Ironically, it wasn’t until I returned to the United States that I met Joseph and found what I had been searching the globe for. Here was a man in conventional attire who was said to possess the capacity to work at the same level as legendary healers in South America as well as avatars from India. The passion with which I’d entered medicine was rekindled after I encountered another person who shared my passion for advancing the boundaries of healthcare beyond their current limits.

The following week I received an invitation to join the cross-disciplinary team of physicians and scientists who were engaged in research at the Global Health Institute. As I observed Joseph work, through my scientific, clinical eyes, my perception permanently shifted. I witnessed the effective intervention of a modality not known by Western medicine. Joseph was transforming human tissue, through intention, within a matter of minutes. A patient came in with a lateral malrotation of the right leg and severe swelling of the ankle. In fifteen minutes the ankle experienced complete absence of swelling and the medial malleolus (ankle bone) previously not seen became visible. The patient’s foot and leg were straightened.

I continued to review Joseph’s work and have been present for a number of sessions where participants in observational studies have had work done. These individuals had previously been cared for by physicians at some of the highest level institutions in the New York City area and were told nothing further could be done for them. I have seen dramatic improvements in both the physical and psychological states of participants who have had the benefit of Joseph’s intervention. We were actively engaged in the exploration of consciousness and its relationship to health and healing. Despite the demands on my time, including being the founding Board member and managing partner of a kidney stone treatment center with a staff of one hundred, as well as a full-time practicing surgeon and father to a newborn, I was compelled to join a team of professionals engaged in developing the currently emerging integrative health model.

What I witnessed in Joseph’s work was not “thinking” similar to what I had been exposed to in the scientific medical field for the past thirteen years. I knew I had seen something extraordinary. I recalled scientists of the nineteenth century who studied the wings of birds and soon thereafter unlocked their mystery and created the new branch of science known as aviation. In the twentieth century, wishing to enable aircraft to fly at night, scientists studied bats and discovered radar. In the twenty-first century, the physicists who harness ineffable energies will give to humanity something sublime.

It is my belief that rigorous scientific exploration of the benevolent source working through Joseph will shape the new healthcare model of this millennium and the future of medicine. It is my opinion that, given the advances in biophysics that support these modalities, linked with the demands of patients for integrative and complementary care, medicine will begin to embrace the notion of consciousness and spirit as mediators of material and thus physical change.
