4 Steps to a Solid Heart Centered Bond With Your Horse

4 Steps to a Solid Heart Centered Bond With Your Horse

  Ever wonder “How can I feel closer to my horse?” It is Possible! Even if you already have a good bond with your horse, you can make it even more heart centered. A retired Mare shared a loving memory from her past with me: the feeling was soaring like an eagle – completely free and limitless. This was how she felt when riding with her owner. It was hard to know where 1 stopped and the other started; they were in perfect sync every time they rode. How does that happen? It comes down to knowing each other intimately when not riding – that time is just as important as perfecting the riding skills. Follow these 4 Steps below to Solidify your Horse Heart Connection   1) Create the space: To solidify the heart connection with your horse, start with creating an intimate space for just you and your horse: • Leave it all at the door: Before you walk into your barn, stop & shake off all of your day’s troubles, concerns, worries. Leave them outside the door. Go in with a blank slate and be open to simply spending time with your horse, just being present. • Play some favorite mellow music: Sometimes the barn can be full of activity and noise. Playing mellow music while you’re grooming can insulate just you & your horse creating a calming space in the stall or in your area. • Visualize White Light: Visualizing a huge bubble of White Light around the stall creates a sacred space for just you and your horse. Using the color White also infuses...
Horses, Ulcers, Reiki, & YLEO

Horses, Ulcers, Reiki, & YLEO

  Yesterday, I shared an article from Holistic Horse about ulcers in horses (click here for link to that article) and I wanted to follow up with some personal information as an empath.   I have worked on horses that have had ulcers, and when I put my hands on them, I feel very sick to my stomach - an overall malaise but not pinpointed to one specific area of my stomach.  I feel like there’s a build up of bile in my system.  I also often have a general increase in an acidic taste in my mouth.  I constantly want to swallow and almost gulp trying to clear that malaise and bile build up feelings. The malaise in my stomach makes me feel uncomfortable, uneasy. I often have a headache as well – not always but most of the time. Generally these symptoms are similar when working on horses with either newly forming or long existing ulcers, although the degree of the symptoms does change.  As the owner may not even know their horse has ulcers, I am not made aware of it either before I connect with their horse.  It’s not until after the session, when talking with the owner and describe the way I felt while working on their horse, that they suspect ulcers and a vet is called out to confirm that suspicion.   Read on as I describe a recent experience of working on a horse with a newly forming ulcer.   I was offering Reiki to a young horse who is normally very shy and hides in the back of his stall most of the time, even...
Our Animals Mirror Us

Our Animals Mirror Us

Ever feel like you are asking your horse to behave a certain way and they do the exact opposite? Frustrating right?   The same thing happens with me and my dogs. At times, they do the exact opposite of what I want them to do. It’s so frustrating I know! Yet, when they are doing the exact opposite of what I want, they are simply mirroring how uncentered I am at that moment.   Let me explain the idea of mirroring & being centered a bit more ….   When I take my dogs to the park for free play – they are wild, as fun dogs are, chasing each other, fetching the ball, rolling on top of each other - you name it. When it’s time to go, and here’s the key …. if I am not centered when I call them, they completely ignore me and run the opposite way. I can chase them, call them, try to bribe them with treats to come back. Nothing really works. I only get more frustrated. Here comes the being centered part. As soon as I center myself and hold the thought and the image “We are going home. Now”, they stop, literally mid-step, turn around and run right to me. It doesn’t even matter how far away I am from them, they turn and run right to me. I do not have to say 1 word, as long as I am grounded and centered and holding that thought and image clearly, they respond instantaneously.   Bet you are wondering how that works? Read on and I’ll clarify that for...
Move To Change

Move To Change

To move forward I need to change. Truth! The only way I can change my life, myself, my business, my day, my outlook, my world, is to move forward. Just move. If I don’t like where I’m at, I need to move. If I don’t like my view, I need to move. Literally and figuratively. You get the idea – moving is the key to changing. You don’t like something, someone, self, then move! It’s the inactivity that keeps us stuck in the same old patterns, the same old feelings, the same old choices. I know! I’ve been there! I’ve been stuck. I’ve been unhappy. I’ve moaned and groaned and been disgruntled. The only way I changed me was when I started moving and trusting myself. I have always been an animal empath but didn’t really focus on it. As a Vet Technician, I used my empathic skills and Reiki whenever I worked with animals – with great success. But I didn’t focus on it as a business – it didn’t fit in with my family’s norm nor with my preconceived ‘what my life should look like’ norm. Finally, I decided to trust myself and move into using my gift. I took some steps by starting as an animal communicator focusing on dogs and cats. Those steps led me to working with horses, even though I had no knowledge of them. In my gut though, I knew horses were the correct path for my skills – trust leading me to another step. But being an animal communicator for the horses was not enough for the horses or their riders...
How it all started with a dog named ‘Princess’

How it all started with a dog named ‘Princess’

This is a story of love and healing   Long before I became a Reiki Master, while I was washing dishes one day, I felt a dog that I’ll call her ‘Princess’, tug on my pant leg to get me to sit down.  She wanted to talk to me.  ‘Princess’ was a German Shepard that had been euthanized about 1 week previously in an agonizing decision by her rescue family. Even though ‘Princess’ was no longer with the living, she felt very real to me that day as I sat on the couch.  I felt her put her head in my lap and I scratched her head and ears as if she were really there in my living room. ‘Princess” had a message for her family.  She wanted to thank her rescue family for all they had done for her.  She wanted them to know that she really loved them and she knew that they had really loved her.  ‘Princess’ had loved her short time with them; it made up for her early life.  She also wanted to let them know there was nothing they could have done differently for her.  She knew they were devastated with the decision they were forced to make, and she understood - there was no other decision they could have made (a child was hurt, and it wasn’t the first time).  She also knew that they were there for her right up until the very end.  She was very grateful for all that her rescue family had done for her. She then showed me a mini-movie of her young life, before she came...
