The wisdom of the horse ................. a reflection of "living in the moment"

January 2010

...In my horse I see a mirror of myself, I see a mirror not only of my human insecurities but I also see a mirror of my potential strengths……we are one and I cannot separate him from me.

When I find the courage to acknowledging this Oneness I can then change my insecurities into strengths. However to do this and to become "empowered" I must first obtain my horse's level of consciousness... for empowerment is obtained by a belief in one's self... a belief in one’s Spirit that is reflected through the horse...

How Animals can teach us to live in “now time”

With change all around us will we approach 2012  and beyond with fear of faith?

For those of us who have spent the last few years working on our own spiritual and personal growth these changes are welcome……………………..We know positive changes are imminent because we have been part of them

2012 represents a completion of cycles within cycles, including the last cycle within the Mayan Calendar.

Unlike the Gregorian Calender the Mayan Long Count Calendar is more than an events calendar, it represented cycles of Spiritual Growth.
The reference to “end time” which is also referred to in many ancient texts and myths does not mean the end of time or any destruction of the planet…………….. Nonetheless, the changes in energy coming onto the planet will signify the end of “time” as we know it.

There is much confusion and misunderstanding around this coming event which is not meant to be translated literally, for every ending there is always a new beginning………..and for those who are working to resolve their inner conflict the transition will be easy.

2013 will be the start of the new Mayan Great Cycle of ………..when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. ...which we believe will mean humanity integrating a new level of consciousness and a new understanding of “now time”.

This new perception of time will require us to vibrate with “Universal” frequencies and the natural “wavelength” of Alpha, as against the hurried “mental” Beta frequency which at this point in time mostly controls our busy lifestyle

Over the years (while doing courses in Metaphysics, esoteric studies and vibrational and Natural Medicine) it has been my horses who have given me the many insights and understanding of how we need to BE to integrate this event.

We work on the premise that humans, as pure “electro-magnetic energy beings” of “Spirit” have been vibrating out of alignment with the frequency of Nature and the animals, and that these changes we are experiencing will require us to revert back from this soon to be obsolete frequency of Beta to the new incoming frequencies

We will need to come into alignment with Universal Laws and vibrate with our hearts AND our minds equally balanced.
When our left brain is in a Beta frequency, we are constantly “thinking” within an artificial time frame. “End time” merely means we will go back to a time where we create in the moment or in Alpha time.
We will still have structure but we will also have spontaneity

It does not mean an “either /or” situation but will require us to harmonise with and integrate both frequencies into one

We will need to sort through all the available information around this event (left brain) and select only that which is right for us …………this information should also vibrate through our right brain and with what we ‘know” in our hearts

We have all experienced this meditative Alpha state of being, we notice it when we are engrossed in the moment, where “time flies” or where we become oblivious to time

How do we learn to balance this “time” with “no-time”, to balance the left and the right brain?

We can gain information from books but this only satisfies the logical left brain.
To find a balance and to satisfy the other side of the brain (and have healthy relationships with others) we must be able to “control” our mental chatter and open our right intuitive channels of emotional or gut intelligence.

Tapping into gut intelligence is not a tangible or “logical” exercise therefore we can only get a reference point of this by “experiencing” it energetically………by learning to BE in the Alpha brainwave frequency…..the natural state of the horse.

In our society, to succeed the importance has been placed on our “intellect”, our logic and scholastic achievements but now as we look around us we see that people are not coping using this left brain facility alone. People are not coping due to an imbalance or a void in emotional intelligence, which cannot be “taught” through left brain channels at school.

E.Q. or emotional intelligence is when we can apply our intellect successfully, when we can have harmonious relationships, feel good about ourselves and we can reach our potential

How Horses can help balance E.Q with I.Q.

Equine Assisted Life Coaching (E.A.L.C.)  is also referred to as Equine Assisted Therapy and incorporates a method of aligning mind/body/spirit and IQ with E.Q. called Whole Body Intelligence.

Emotional Intelligence is how we relate to others using the 90% plus that is non-verbal communication

The horse can act as a positive feedback mechanism (in our Life Coaching sessions) because horses have their logic (I.Q.) and their instincts (E.Q. or non-verbal communication) balanced

With an understanding of Vibrational Medicine we see another quality of the horse in that he/she vibrates at a higher frequency, a frequency that equates to a sense of serenity and calm unhurriedness.

Humans are often scattered by their emotions, which ultimately affect their self esteem, their ability to make decisions and ability to cope with life generally, whereas we see in the horse a quiet strength of mind and dogged determination…….and……….the horse never questions who he is.

The horse has this trust and a belief in himself because he does not have an emotional component holding him back.

During a life coaching session the Holistequine Life Coaching horses bypass the human emotional centre and respond only to their client’s “energy field” therefore if they “see” a block in the client’s “aura” they respond accordingly……...

The horse sees so called “negative emotions” such as anger, frustration, guilt etc which is held in the body’s aura as “un-expressed energy”

My gelding made me aware of the way horse can “see’ human auras many years ago. He would snort and back away from some people while at other times he would happily walk up to others.

I later realised that his snorting and backing away was because he was “tuning into” what he perceived as human negative energy.
Over the years as I cleared my own blocks and refined my vibration I am now able to see what my horse sees………. his gift to me is that we have now understood and refined this “reaction” as a bio feedback tool and can now use it in many areas within E.A.L.C. As stated earlier, most social problems that people experience are the result of poor emotional intelligence. The blocks can be recent or can be caused by long forgotten negative events buried within the subconscious mind and can often play out in people’s lives as low self esteem and lack of confidence.

When these emotions or feelings are not understood or are not able to be released they can become stifled or internalised
Unexpressed negative energy if not communicated in a healthy manner often causes anger, which more often than not is projected onto others or conversely it can result in unhappiness and possibly depression which is this same “energy” internalised

During the interactive exercises in the Life Coaching sessions our horse partner demonstrates to us when our thoughts, ideas and wishes are not congruent with how we act.
We all have dreams and expectations in life and want good outcomes but if these things do not happen and if we don’t fulfil out goals we often cannot work out why.

To get our desired outcome we need to have our focus or desire aligned with our “will to do” or, our emotional intelligence aligned with our intellect.
For example if we wanted to make a chair (focus/ desire) we would first use our intelligence to “picture” this chair, design the chair, work out what tools we need etc, then we would need the energy/willpower to make the chair happen.
This “energy/will power to make it happen” or our will to do is our Spirit and is directly related to and includes our sense of self or our self esteem i.e. our emotional intelligence

“Intelligence” is not just a function of the mind; it includes gut intelligence, instincts and “a sense of knowing” from somewhere deep inside us.
The horse has perfected this combined intelligence over the course of his evolution as a survival mechanism and now through this system he/she can show us how we too can accomplish this balance

The understanding of the animal/human connection for me came with getting to know my own horses and of feeling that deep connection that enables horse and rider to have “one mind”.

It came with the understanding of the spirit of the horse and of his service to man.

Our work at the centre has been developed over 20 years of observing how the qualities inherent in the horse strengthened our own human energy field and how the strength, determination, sensitivity and mindset of the horse by osmosis seemed to instil the same qualities in us.

Over the years as we began to understand the vibrational effect horses had on people’s health and wellbeing we developed this interactive system to enhance a new awareness in humans.

As we started to attract clients and students it became clear that something very powerful was at work here.
People would arrive with headaches, sinus problems and an array of minor ailments that would disappear after being around our horses. People would cry and release old programming while working with a horse of their choice.

What we were seeing was that our family of horses (the elders, the parents and the youngsters) acted as archetypes in people’s lives, and that issues created years ago by those absent family members could be cleared by the horses. The unconditional love (or service) that the horse represented was reaching areas that no human practitioner could access.

A private life coaching session includes the client, the equine coach and a human practitioner/facilitator who has been trained to a level of “higher perception” or “sensitivity” enabling them to intuit the finer communication coming from the horse

Equine Assisted Therapy Case Study

A client recently presented for an interactive life coaching session. Peter is 25 years of age doing a Marketing degree at University.


The session starts with some very simple interactive exercises between client and horse (no riding is involved in these Life Coaching sessions).

Peter choses a horse he feels comfortable with, an older gelding he is ‘drawn to” (ponies and goats are equally as effective and contribute in this work)

However when asked to do a very simple task Peter’s horse Jed will not respond.

As we go through the exercises Peter has been asked to project “out” his thoughts and dreams for the future, to focus on his goals and what he wants to accomplish in life……still no response.

Because Jed, our horse life coach has not seen enough “energy” around Peter’s request he does not see Peter as strong, committed or as a leader in his field so, of course he does not respond.

Everything, including our thoughts and intentions are vibrations and if the energy surrounding Peter’s “vision” for his future is not powerful enough nothing will happen…………..and he will find exactly the same response when he goes out into the world

In other words, if the vibration or energy of the request is not equal to the vibration/energy of the “willpower to do”……our horse does not “see” any energy and therefore doesn’t respond……here is an example of “like attracts like” and if the vibration of the two are not the same ….nothing happens

Usually what happens next is frustration and anger as the client’s ego is wounded, Peter has seen this as rejection and has taken this lack of response from his horse personally

Because our work here involves bypassing the emotional body and dealing directly at the level of “programming” we do not need to dwell on past events

The human ego or energy field is affected by negative programming from the past which causes a “block” around “not being good enough”

In Peter’s case there was an “issue” which was subconsciously holding him back, an issue that had been buried since childhood. The particular horse Peter chose to work with is the patriarch of the herd, an older wise soul who carries a sense of “authority” and who carries the true masculine principals, a principal which is the vibration of unconditional love from Father.

To resolve this situation was simple. ………….. All Peter needed to do was to acknowledge the true masculine principals within himself

The issues around the “father figure” that were imprinted on Peter’s subconscious as a child are now reassessed by the adult in him and the old energy can then be released.

Feelings of anger and frustration have now been replaced with inner peace………. and more importantly, a new mindset of empowerment and inner strength to take out into the world.

Not surprisingly, because this new realisation has now altered Peter’s “whole body intelligence” (or energy field) it has changed him at a deeper energetic level which has also been validated by what we now see as a positive change in the horse’ response. …………now, while doing the same exercises Jed acknowledges Peter’s changed energy field and happily takes his lead.

By osmosis a healing has taken place

Many humans have problems that can sit for years in the subconscious mind but when we come face to face with the horse, these beings of unconditional acceptance and love mirror back to us something that resonates deep with ourselves.

They recognise a real sense of “who we are” that we can then reach in and claim.

We also work with ponies in children’s programs and we have 3 mares who work as life coaches in empowerment issues for women.

These 3 mares represent the three ‘ages” of the feminine…….the Virgin, the Mother and the Wise Woman…………..they are horses that, through this process can open us up to our true sense of feminine Self worth.

We have found that because working with horses in this way is a transpersonal process anything that “comes through” or is intuited through the horse is absorbed more readily as truth

The reason many humans suffer constant pain and confusion is that deep in our subconscious we feel we are unworthy, and because of this misguided programming we have mostly cut of from the true essence of who we really are.
The horse sees straight through to our soul and looks into our powerful Spirit and can then reflect this purity back to us.
We see in the horse the grace and the powerful being that is our potential.

How Horses Empower Us

Anyone who has ever worked with a horse will know that just “asking’ or “wanting” him/her to do something is just not enough…..there must be a level of commitment, a level of determination, and in the case of the Holistequine horses, a level of vibration that resonates with “a purity of intention”,

This “level of energy” or “energy meter” is used as a bio-feedback tool (through our W.B.I. System) and has been incorporated into a wide range of social, wellbeing and health issues, including bullying and parenting, leadership in corporate and sales, healthy relationships, wealth creation etc

The greatest gift from the horse is their ability to alter our consciousness and heighten our perception, a gift that allows us to live in the present moment

The Mayans did not see “ends or beginnings” they did not see 2012 as the end they only acknowledge a process of cycles for evolution into Oneness

Through the horses and the natural world we can reclaim our path in this Spiritual process and discover our inherent potential.

Horses reflect back to us our true essence…………..they mirror the courage, serenity, commitment, inner strength and the unconditional Love needed to vibrate heaven on earth
