In the original Harmony programme, I advised my then
assistants and trainees to find moments when the owner/caretaker
had experienced a “falling in love” with the creature in
question – the moment when they chose that one animal in a
litter, or a herd, or from a choice of all the animals on this
Sometimes, it wasn’t so much an active choice and someone
might have just had a moment somewhere and accepted a rescued or
unwanted animal into their hearts and homes but unless the
caretaker absolutely never wanted the animal in the first place
(which is a very rare occurrence indeed and not a one you are
likely to come across amongst the clientele that would seek out
an animal energy healer) there is always that moment when two
creatures met and fell in love.
Now and exactly as it is with people, stuff happens, annoying
things happen, bad things happen and that love connection gets
plastered over with daily negativity and unhappiness until a
point may be reached when you can’t see it shining out any more
under all that rubbish that has been piled upon it, and one or
the other creature truly believes that “the love is dead”.
For one, this is a very sad moment indeed when they think, “I
don’t love you any more.”
- But for the other, it is the end of the world
as the echo arises in return, “They don’t love me
It is one of the very worst energetic injuries any social
creature is capable of sustaining in the Hard, and can prove to
be incurable and fatal, indeed.
To take a client back in time to a time when this love was
still clear and clearly visible and could be touched just by
looking at the creature is a direct energetic effort at clearing
away some of the rubbish and reminding everyone concerned about
the energetic realities of the situation.
Establishing this baseline or base connection of love, that
it is absolutely still there and absolutely still as bright and
beautiful as it was the first time they looked upon the creature
and made that connection with them, is the most healing
intervention you can possibly make in any situation involving
behaviour problems of any kind.
With the baseline love connection in place, the human client
Have more patience under all circumstances. Often, behaviour
problems and especially the type that has lead to the
trance-escape states or even autism, can take a while to undo,
re-route and bring back to an even flow of the individual and
Have more faith & trust. During this time of re-balancing,
learning new behaviours and dropping off old and unhelpful ones,
the owner/caretaker must support the creature in many different
ways and must be willing to accept setbacks and plateaus without
losing heart or focus. If you love someone, you can do that and
it isn’t even hard.
Have the desire for change and to keep the relationship
alive. Without these two key points, all is lost. Literally. If
the owner gives up, there’s nothing you, or I, or even the
angels can do to help the creature from thereon in. If you love,
you don’t give up easily, if ever at all.
* Exercise 1 – Falling In Love
Think of an older animal you know, one that may have been
with you for many years and might not, at this time, be the
total focus of your attention. If you do not have or know of
such an animal, a human friend is a perfect stand in for this
Think back on a time, perhaps long ago, when first you met
this creature. Allow yourself to really remember what it was
like, then – remember details about the meeting, what time of
day it was, where it was, what you were wearing and so on.
Now, remember the moment when you first fell in love and also
then, remember how you felt at that time.
Holding the feeling steady, allow time in your mind to pass
as it does and consider the animal as it is today.
Reflect on how your feelings towards the animal have changed
as a result of this exercise.
* Exercise 2 – Magic Moment
For this exercise, remember a time when you connected deeply
with an animal. A time when you looked into an animal’s eyes and
it looked back and you knew that something extraordinary had
happened, a moment that changed you both in some way and changed
your relationship after it had taken place.
Remember and really re-experience this moment of connection
as fully and on as many levels as you can.
Sit for a moment after the exercise and give grace.
The purpose of the two exercises above is to bring to your
conscious awareness as well as setting up your unconscious
systems, to recognise that special energy that makes up a “love
connection” between two mortal creatures here in the Hard.
Once you have recognised and experienced it yourself, it
becomes much easier to target and re-call this energy in others
you are working with. To this end, here is an exercise with
another human who will stand in for your future clients:
* Exercise 3 – Remember ...
Find a willing human and talk to them about an animal of
theirs. Ask them about those two incidences from Exercise 1 and
2. You do not have to make a big deal about it, just ask them
conversationally, for example, “Where did you get X? When was
that? How did you come to choose X? What was special about X?”
For Exercise 2, you can ask, “Did you ever have a special moment
with X? Something you really remember?”
As they think about it and answer you, keep a close track on
their states and energy emanations. See if you can guide them to
a point where you can absolutely feel the resonance of their
experiences with the love connection in yourself.
* Exercise 4 – The Love Connection
Now, strengthen and nourish that love connection you have
brought to the human’s awareness in any way that comes to you.
You could, for example:
simply add your blessing and love to it in harmonic
add a The Gift style strengthening/re-balancing, such as
sending waves of support of a colour, a bright light that
restores and cleans the connection or anything that your
intuition provides for you;
gently raise the vibration so that the love connection always
remains above and unblemished by whatever happens in The Hard
AND the person knows it does, too.
Give them a silent blessing and continue the conversation
until you have reached a natural exit point.
Do this exercise with at least three different humans and
note how the energy of the love connection is immediately
recognisable in each case.
> Tutor Comment – The Fear Of Love
When this is done in workshops, an objection is nearly always
raised from the participants and it goes like this:
“Isn’t it dangerous to strengthen someone’s love connections
to another creature? Is it ecological? Doesn’t it make
bereavement much worse when the creature dies? Won’t they become
ever so upset if they lose the creature or if it is ill?”
These questions come from the presupposition that love makes
us vulnerable to terrible suffering and pain and it might be
better to not love at all, or at least keep a lid on how much we
love, so we need not experiences these awful feelings.
This is a classic Harmony Programme style dilemma, only it
isn’t a dilemma at all, we were just and once again, taught and
entrained to believe that it is.
George Harrison had a point when he said, “All you need is
love.” Oh, for sure, that line has been beaten to death and
heard so many times that it has become hardly more than “Coca
Cola is The Real Thing” in our neurologies but the fact is that
All you need is love. The more you have of it, the more
powerful you become, the more centred within yourself, the more
unassailable you are to doubt, fear and panic; the more you are
able to cope with anything at all the universe can possibly
throw at you.
From a place of love, you can do things that you thought were
You can stand pain, unbelievable suffering and in the end, if
you just love enough, you can quite happily allow yourself to be
nailed onto a cross, drink from the hemlock chalice or walk
voluntarily to the bonfire for burning – this truly is the only
way to overcome and find strength, courage, perseverance,
dedication, and every single human attribute that’s worth having
Love truly does reach across time and space and it is truly,
in that sense, eternal. It is not love that causes pain, it is
backing away from it, holding back from it and disturbing its
absolutely pure energies with entrained power games, domination
games, possession games, punishment games and all the other
kinds of games that people play.
Therefore, anything at all that you might do or contribute to
strengthen love connections and the flow of this energy form –
between creatures, between creatures and owners, between
creatures, owners and you, between you and the universe, the
land, the earth itself - is a holy pursuit of the highest order.
