We can learn a lot about bonding with pei by watching the movie Avatar. Similar to the creatures from Pandora, pei choose who to bond with and once their choice is made they form a strong, emotional, lifelong bond. By being their source of food, shelter, love and comfort you can establish the initial bond. Once a connection is made, it is important that your pei see you as their pack leader and follow your direction. With time and attention, the bond will grow stronger.
In the movie, the Na’vi connect to other creatures through their queues, in real life we can make an equally strong connection through the unified field. We can sense the needs of our pei and they can sense ours. Honor and nurture that kinship and your pei will love you forever. Since we are all connected, don’t be surprised if your love extends to other pei who are in need. Oel ngati kameie (I see you). Namaste.
