Nature Healing Coning for Animals

One of my feline companions is a white cat named Maddie. Not only is she deaf, but she doesn't appear to have a heck of a lot between her ears. She gets upset easily, talks a lot, and is forever knocking things over because they're in her way and she isn't scared by the sound of them falling. Needless to say, communicating with a dopey, deaf cat can be difficult. She knows the sign language for "come here" and for "that's all you're getting." Yet, she's never once responded to the sign language for "no." (Maybe she's smarter than I think.)

But all hope isn't lost because thanks to Machaelle and nature I have an incredible communication tool in my back pocket. Through using the Nature Healing Coning for Animals, I can easily let her know what the house rules are, and I can find out what's bothering her when she gets herself all worked up. Here are two examples that both awed me and reminded me how incredible nature is.


Going Outside the Box
Off and on since I got Maddie, she would all of a sudden choose to use the carpet right in front of the litter box. I'd done some conings with her around the issue and always had results, but they never stuck. I couldn't see any pattern so just let it go. But last summer we finally figured out a solution.

I came home later than usual one night to discover I'd accidentally locked her in the bathroom. She had water and food in there, but she had bloodied her nose digging at the door to get to the litter box. After giving her a good cuddle and ETS Plus for Animals, I looked around the bathroom for the inevitable. To my surprise, I found two little turds in the bathtub drain.

I immediately opened a Nature Healing Coning, apologized for locking her in the bathroom and thanked her for being so considerate. I then sat down with her to let nature get to work. After such a long day I admit to nodding off for a few seconds during which I saw what looked like a big, round, white litter box. I asked Maddie if she wanted a round litter box and got a strong "yes." I then asked if it was connected to her "going outside the box" issue and again tested positive.

Everyone I told laughed at what they said was Mission Impossible. One friend said, "Think about it. They're called boxes, not litter bowls. You'll never find one." But the next day I went into my favorite pet store, picked a round, white litter box right off the shelf and went to pay for it. The person checking me out said, "Aren't these cool? They just came in yesterday."

And yes, she's going inside the box now.


Lost and Found
One weekend a houseguest and I woke up and rushed out the door to meet a friend for breakfast. We then went shopping, and I got home early that evening. After feeding my other cat, I started wondering where Maddie was. More time passed, and I was officially worried. Sometimes when she's sleeping, she won't realize I'm home until she wakes up.

I looked all around the house, under every bed and even in all the cupboards. I then put on heavy shoes and jumped up and down. No response (and jumping always works!). I asked my guest when last she'd seen her and if she had let her outside. She didn't think so, but she had gone out before I got up.

I immediately opened a Nature Healing Coning. As soon as I did, I felt this rush of fear. Oh, she's scared, I thought, and in my panic promptly ignored the coning to search the mountainside for her. It's a strange, helpless feeling to search for an animal without calling out to them. I glanced around the yard and then spent hours combing the mountain behind my house. I was about to go check in with the few neighbors I have when I took some ETS Plus and my senses came back.

I told nature what had happened, apologized for not utilizing their help earlier and explained that I wanted Maddie to know I was looking for her. I tested negative for going to neighbors and negative for continuing to comb the mountain. Yes, I should go outside, but not to look for her. It made no sense to me, and I didn't think I could pull it off. I wanted to be actively looking for her. So, I explained this to the coning and said I wanted to test for how long I should do nothing so I could get back to actively looking for her. Once again, half of me was working against nature, but then I remembered Machaelle's talk on the video, This Is Perelandra. Okay. Fine. I'll trust my testing and trust nature.

I went outside to collect kindling in the yard and within seconds heard Maddie start crying. I followed the insistent ear-splitting yowls to the shed where I found her stuck in some fencing stored in the rafters. I gave her a shot of ETS Plus before detangling her and running into the house. Once in, I passed by a mirror and couldn't help but smile: She had her paws wrapped around my neck, and her head tucked under my chin.

I now realize nature was telling me that the best way to find a deaf cat is to ensure that she can find you first. Thank you, once again, to Machaelle and nature for such an amazing tool.
