For most of us, a feeling of abundance, or the lack of it, usually goes hand in hand with issues around money and financial success. Since 1998, my clients have all been of the four-legged, winged or finned variety. From rhinos and elephants, to dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits and a beehive, I do Resonance Repatterning sessions exclusively for animals. So, how does abundance, as we perceive it, fit into their lives?
We might think that a squirrel, for instance, would be a candidate for an Abundance Repatterning around anxiety about being able to find enough nuts to last through the winter. A packrat’s problem might involve its inability to make a successful getaway after burgling someone’s jewelry box. Or what about a thoroughbred horse that wins the Kentucky Derby? Wouldn’t he feel more abundant thanks to receiving some extra hay?
One of my clients, a cockatiel named Tootie, lost her position as leader in the pecking order with several other birds. She didn’t feel that being a mother to her chick was fulfilling her destiny. In other words, she was suffering from the cockatiel equivalent of postpartum depression. During her session, an Earth Element Repatterning emphasized Tootie’s negative state of self-punishment. To feel nurtured, she would have to accept herself for who she really was. After her session, Tootie’s attitude changed. She began to eat and even ignored her chick’s jealousy when the number one person in their lives paid more attention to Tootie. As that person put it, “She’s getting her power back!
While Chloe Wordsworth stresses the importance of all of the elements – wood, earth, fire, water and metal – in connection with the Abundance Repatterning, in her Introduction she points out that only a finely-tuned water element allows for the easy functioning of one’s power and energy in relationship to the ebb and flow of one’s money and financial reserves. A Water Element Repatterning came up in a session for another client, an elderly Shih-Tzu named Petunia who, having lost her sight, had become a recluse. Her age and blindness were changing the dynamics of her relationship with her person; she felt powerless, hopeless and needy, all negative water element qualities. Reflecting a shift to a positive water element quality, after sharing my session notes with her, Petunia’s person said, “She’s experiencing some really nice changes. We’re in the flow!”
Much more than just having money, wealth and financial success, abundance also means ampleness, bounty, opulence, plenty, plethora, profusion, prosperity and thriving. Recently, I did a session for an elderly whippet who was wasting away because he couldn’t do the things he used to, and he couldn’t live up to his person’s expectations that he would regain at least some of his lost youth. An Integration for Growth Repatterning culminated in a Positive Action in which he and his person had to work together. “It has brought him closer to me in that he allows me to help him. Before, he seemed aloof and did not care about his life anymore,” his person wrote. Abundance was restored to an old dog’s life.
Bailey, a dog with issues around food and females because she had neither been fed nor nurtured by her mother, was “on” for the Earth Element Repatterning statement, “I use others to get money.” Colostrum (a form of milk rich in nutrients and antibodies that is produced by females in late pregnancy and just after giving birth, something that Bailey never received) came up as her Positive Action. In answer to my question about how she reacted to the colostrum, Bailey’s person responded, “better than peanut butter.” Her person also said, “Bailey is much more attentive to me, less competitive and far less edgy.” No longer was Bailey using her person to get “money,” a word that, in Bailey’s case, can be interpreted as a total lack of abundance that impacted both of their lives which was triggered by Bailey’s unconscious patterns.
In scientific circles, the word “abundance” describes how the relative commonality of an element – wood, fire, earth, water and metal – is measured. How much abundance there might be in honey I have no idea, but my friend, who was head of the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry at the University of East Africa, certainly would. What he didn’t know was how to be a beekeeper when he asked me to do a session for a hive that had been moved to a new and strange location, and the bees were having difficulty adjusting. The session’s “gift” for the bees was: “We rely on our communal strength, abilities and unerring instincts for our survival, we create harmony and abundance in our environment, and we resonate and cooperate with the hopes and dreams of our new beekeeper.” That’s exactly what happened. As my friend reported exultantly, “The repatterned bees are eating us out of house and home. Whereas they used to be happy with one jar of syrup in three days, the little darlings now finish it to the last drop between sunrise and sunset, and look for more!”
Can’t you just visualize those bees and the honey they went on to produce in such abundance? Two thousand years ago, the Chinese Law of Abundance was based on the technique of visualization, which played a pivotal role in a session I did on September 17, 2001 for a male cat named Papoose. According to his person, Papoose was paralyzed by fear as the result of all the renovation going on in his new home. Muscle checking indicated that someone else needed to be proxied into Papoose’s session. To my surprise, that someone turned out to be the rescue dogs who were working at “ground zero” in New York City. In one of the session’s modalities, I had to visualize Papoose offering a message of love and strength to those rescue dogs.
For part of his Positive Action, his person had to sit down with Papoose on two occasions and visualize him as the Commander in Chief of the rescue dogs while sending white light to them from him. The second part of his Positive Action involved something that I hesitated to mention, a name change for Papoose that would project a more confident image out into the world.
“We already have!” his person said when I told her. “Not only is there a definite shift in his energy, but Papoose is now Sher Khan. In the ancient languages of northern India it means Lion King, and he loves it!”
Abundance comes in many forms and guises. It can creep unobtrusively into all our lives, including animals’, on little cat feet, or it can charge in with the force of a stampeding herd of buffalo. A part of all our lives it most definitely is whether we’re human or animal. However we might visualize or interpret abundance, animals seem to be in the catbird seat. With nary a thought for money or financial success, animals live in abundance. They live in the here and now.
