Yes, I used to do long distance running, and once, on a very steep, and slow, 
part of a trail, the horseflies were fierce, and I spontaneously contacted the 
king of the horseflies, and asked him to stop his flies from being so 
aggressive. I don't recall if it worked, though I often will deal with pests 
that way, by introducing myself, to the king of the particular animal kingdom, 
letting him know that I mean no harm, and am respectful, but want my space,

 I agree, Fleetwood and 2013 was definitely my year for learning how to deal 
successfully with critters, mainly of the entomological variety! The last 
incident involved being inundated with gigantic flies. And I couldn't figure 
out how they were getting into the house! Finally I did a little ho'oponopono. 
Next day they were gone! And I never found any dead bodies! About a week later 
I read an article that their very short mating season had just occurred. 
Anyway...the critters are here to stay. Good to make peace and have clear 
boundaries, as you say.

to the house, this evening. I hosed him off, into nearby shrubs. I'd rather 
make it really uncomfortable, so he doesn't come back, vs. killing him, and 
getting that whole cycle going... it is a lost cause to have an antagonistic 
relationship with the animals here, but I have no problem establishing my 
boundaries. You can see two or three rattles in the picture, he's about a foot 
long -
