Nature Healing Coning for Animals
by Linda Harrison

I want to tell you about something remarkable that happened in connection with a nature healing coning for my dog, Teddy. I don't know why I should have been surprised, because I have been working with my MAP team for almost two and a half years now with some amazing results.

My five-year-old Shih-Tzu, Teddy, periodically has skin problems, particularly in his "rear" area. I can get him stabilized at times, but then it flares up soon after. It can go from comfortable to a hot zone within a few hours. When this happens, he chews himself unmercifully, and it is a sad thing to see.

I have sporadically tried to heal this by use of the Nature Healing Conings. Having three other animals and myself to work with, however, plus all the other things I do, I finally came to terms with the fact that I just can't do it all myself, all the time. As much as I love and believe in the Perelandra processes and the essences, I have learned that forcing myself to make regular use of them for all of us all the time is very time-consuming, therefore too stressful for me when I try to fit it in with all the rest of what life offers — which is to explain why I had not been treating Teddy's skin condition with regular conings and essences right from the start.

Anyway, one day, after a particularly nasty night of discomfort for the little guy, I chickened out and took him to the allopathic veterinarian, knowing full well they would put him on a round of cortisone as well as medicated baths and monthly flea control. I was not happy about this, but all things considered, it seemed the most pragmatic approach at the moment.

They gave him a cortisone shot as well as pills, shampoo, etc. The shot was supposed to begin to bring him instant relief. (I am well aware of the side effects of cortisone, but that is not the subject of this letter.) And for an hour or so, after I got him home, he did seem quieter. But it wasn't long before he pretty much went crazy. He began to chew himself worse than ever and just could not stop! The areas they had just treated at the vet became more inflamed than ever. He worked himself into a frenzy. I kept thinking, "Well, hold on, you have done everything for him that you can do; give it time and maybe the shot will kick in." But it was terrible for him. I couldn't stand to see him going through this. I kept thinking, "Now what? After all we've just done for him, what else can I possibly do to give him some relief?"

All of the sudden the thought came to me to open a coning for him. "Okay," I thought, "it sure couldn't hurt." Now, picture this little dog chewing and running in circles and making strange noises. He was frantic. It got more and more intense by the moment. I didn't know if he had had an allergic reaction to the cortisone or what. I felt this quickly escalating into an emergency situation.

I opened the coning. And this is what I want to share with you: The very moment I spoke the last words establishing the coning, Teddy walked over to a few feet away from me and quietly sat down. He just sat down, stopped all activity and rested peacefully. It blew my mind! I had not even had time to explain the situation to the members of the coning. I guess the need was so evident they just stepped in and did what needed to be done.

At first I was so stunned to see Teddy getting some relief that I could say nothing for a few moments. Then I began to express my gratitude, even before I began to explain the situation, which I felt was probably unnecessary at that point (but that's what Machaelle says to do, and I always try to follow the instructions as best as I can). My next thoughts were that this was probably not going to last. In other words, that it was too good to be true. But as the half hour progressed, he remained calm. Twice he scratched a little bit, but in a "normal" way — not pathological as it had been.

At the end of the half hour, I was afraid to close the coning, sure that it would all begin again. It was just about time to retire for the night, and I was worried he would chew himself all night long. I asked the coning if it would be a good idea to keep the coning open for him until morning. I got "yes." So that's what I did.

I am so happy to report that he slept quietly and well (and so did I and all the rest of us) all night long. When morning came, I thanked the coning and closed it. The problem was over.

If I had nothing but free time, I would probably spend my days doing nothing but Perelandra processes and essences on all of us. I believe in them that strongly, but I must also find a way to balance them with all the other activities that go on. It's nice to know that even when I have not been consistently using the magnificent tools available through Machaelle's research, they can be pulled out in an emergency, and they work!
