Our Winter 2021/22 issue has just gone to print, and our cover star this time around is the acclaimed energy intuitive and teacher Lee Harris. Today, we are excited to share a sneak peek of our conversation with him.
Energy, Empathy and Transformation
We Interview Lee Harris
by Aisling Cronin
Interviewer: Paul Congdon
Lee Harris is a globally acclaimed energy intuitive, transformational teacher and musician. In recent years, he has become well known for his popular monthly Energy Update videos, but he has been in the spiritual field for a long time.
Lee first began to perform intuitive readings in his England home in 2004. From there, he gradually built his company, Lee Harris Energy (LHE), into the multi-media worldwide event company and production house it is today. Lee now lives in California and heads a thirteen-member international team, all of whom are passionate about grounding creative spirituality into these challenging times.
Lee offers practical teachings that focus on helping conscious, intuitive, and sensitive people to heal and thrive. He is also determined to see people experience impactful and abundant lives, while supporting each other through community. He is a musician and artist who believes deeply in the power of creativity for healing: his acclaimed album AWAKEN (produced with Davor Bozic) became a bestseller in November 2020.
Lee’s aforementioned monthly Energy Updates have gained great popularity because they offer practical guidance for navigating daily life, and are imbued with clarity, empowerment, and optimism. These qualities are abundant within the man himself, as we learned when we interviewed him for a recent Positive Nights event.
Paul: Can you tell us how your journey first began? Were you always interested in metaphysical topics?
Lee: Like a lot of people who are sensitive and intuitive, I think I was just seen as an average weird guy! Something felt off to me as a kid, and because I had no understanding of what that was, that feeling just turned into self-blame. ‘I’m too emotional. I feel too much.’ There was no one on hand to say to me, ‘you might be a highly sensitive person, and this is what that can look like.’ My one refuge was creativity. From a very young age, I was wired to pursue anything creative, or anything to do with communication.
I often think that the seeds of what we end up doing in life can show up in our childhood, in the things we naturally love and gravitate towards. Now, my life is all about creativity and communication, as well as healing.
I moved towards healing and metaphysics at the age of sixteen, when I was experiencing some difficulties in my life. I can’t remember who exactly set me on that path – I credit Oprah Winfrey and her show, in part! But I began to seek out spiritual books and other material that helped me dive into the spiritual dimension of life. My big Bible at that time was The Four Agreements (by Don Miguel Ruiz). I strongly felt the truth and purity of it.
Paul: I would love to ask more about the entities you channel, called the Z’s. I believe you’ve said there are eighty-eight of them in total, and the first one that came through for you was named Zachary. Has the quality and coherence of their messages increased over time?
Lee: The weirdest thing about channelling the Z’s – and the reason it took me so long to believe it had actually happened to me – is that it was so easy then, and it’s still so easy now. The coherence, from day one, was just there. Whenever they speak through me, for the first twenty or thirty seconds, I feel as though I’m repeating sentences I can feel just above my head … but after that point, I’m no longer even aware of there being a point above my head. The information all melds into one continuous flow. I’m not unconscious – it’s more like I’m just sitting behind that flow of information, and I get to hear it. But I tend to forget 95% of what I channel shortly after it’s come through.
The coherence has always been there, but definitely, the level of information I can tune into has grown as I’ve grown, and as the world has changed. With any channeller, there is a limit to how much any of us can access, depending on our own personal human limits … or depending on what we’re not supposed to know. I remember once having a conversation with a friend who’s also in the spiritual field, and she was asking questions of the Z’s. In response to one of her questions, the Z’s said, ‘We can’t talk about that, because that would take Lee completely off his path and distract him from the role he is here to serve. If we talk about that now, it will not be the right time for him.’ I did get the information two or three years later, and the Z’s said
if they had given it to me any earlier, it would have freaked me out!
There will always be things you don’t know and things you’re not supposed to know. I also believe that there’s always a certain level of correlation between a channel and the beings they channel – for example, someone who channels highly scientific information tends to come from a scientific background themselves, so they are able to understand the very technical information being conveyed.
In my connection with the Z’s, I notice that the primary kind of information they channel through me is related to how we’re feeling and what we’re experiencing as we navigate through world changes. They actively hold a space for that. They say that they use my level of empathy and sensory ability, when I’m channelling for a person or a group, to monitor the volume of what they’re communicating. At the end of the day, they only want to give us information that we can successfully alchemise: information we can use to help ourselves.
