HOW DOES HEALING WORK?
Environment - Leaving your life behind and being in nature with the horses is an open space to breathe, and take a look at everything going on for you from a separate perspective outside and away from it all. From this place, you can start to open up and be able to see how YOU are creating much of your suffering and pain. It is difficult if not impossible to make any clear decisions or changes while in the environment.
AND IF YOU ARE CREATING IT, YOU CAN UNCREATE IT!
Patterns- We carry patterns, or specific habitual ways of seeing and doing things that are subconscious, unable to be seen in everyday life choices, thinking and actions. Horses mirror us. They show us exactly what we are and what we do, and when you see that for yourself, vs being told, a whole new self understanding opens up. From there you can consciously choose differently, develop energetic and self management mastery through practice here with the horses! Practice in a safe, private, and non judgemental environment is so powerful.
IN TALK THERAPY, YOU ARE ONLY WORKING WITH THE MIND! WITH HORSES YOU ARE WORKING ON MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, SOMATIC (OF THE BODY) AND SPIRITUAL LEVELS, THAT ARE, ALL OF WHO YOU ARE. YOUR ENERGY SHIFTS THROUGH BEING IN THE PRESENCE OF THE HORSES AS WELL AS HAVING EXPERIENCES AND THEN FACILITATING THEM, CREATING PROFOUND CHANGE.
Stuck Energy - The energy of our past experiences lives in our bodies. That's why when you smell apple pie, you think Thanksgiving. But it's also why when you smell a hospital, your body starts to panic. This stuck energy can be good, but much of the time, we struggle with fear, and what comes up through our beliefs about situations is strongly influenced if not controlled by this subconscious stuck energy. I can verbally clear you and a few of my horses actually help here physically as well. The results is a feeling of freedom and clarity. You are able to make decisions faster and take action easier. Clients describe it as "lifting the cloud."
Develop ability to change your state of mind and body - Mastery of your energy is a skill to be developed. No matter what is going on, you have the ability to shift perspective, lighten up, and see clearer. Commitment to this, changes your life for the better in exponential ways because you are able to move through tough times more rapidly and thus life flows.
