An abusive past
I visited this horse a little while ago. He’d had an abusive past, and elements of his new home were causing memory triggers resulting in ever-deepening trauma. Luckily for him, his person had the foresight to look deeper than the physical behaviours. She sensed there was something deeper.
When we first met, the horse was standing at the back of his stable trembling with fear at the sight of the resident gamekeeper, visible some distance away – a strong reminder of the person who had abused him. He was rigid, feet firmly planted, head high, nostrils wide and ears stark. The fear in his eyes was clear.
A whisper – “Thank you.”
Although the horse gave his permission for me to help him he initially wanted me to keep my distance. Then, bit by bit the horse made his way towards the front of the stable where I was supporting him through my own energy and intention.
At the end of what was a deep emotional healing session for everyone, he bowed his head, touching my knees with his nose; I then heard his gentle whisper –
Signs of emotional release
The video clip below was taken after I’d exited the stable. He still valued my support as his head appeared over the stable door. He had already shown signs of release such as yawning, a glazed look in the eyes, deep sighs, stomach rumbling..
As I watched and supported him now, the horse, in the safe space I had created for him felt confident in allowing the processing and releasing of the deepest trapped energies that had kept him stuck in his abused past.
Notice his eyes – they are neither open nor closed. His ears are no longer stark. His complete trust in me to keep him safe is clear.
We lessen the risk
Working with energy allows us to reach down to the source of an issue where energy blocks can accumulate. In clearing the blocked energies we lessen the risk of the physical manifestations of adverse behaviours and physical ailments.
They deserve recognition
Being recognised as energetic beings is as crucial to all non-human animals as the formal recognition of their continued sentient status we currently strive for. Horses are energy beings.
In spite of being abused by humans, horses must trust us to help them because they want us to learn; they need us to learn. They want to teach us in the hope we will one day see ourselves in them.
We are no different in our make-up to these beautiful creatures; it is only our human nature that sets us apart. We will achieve the deepest relationship and best health of ourselves, horses and all the other non-humans we share our lives with only when we can recognise who we all are as energetic beings. To ignore and dismiss this fact is an injustice to ourselves and to the animals we care for.
The placebo effect
The power of Universal Energy continues to be questioned by many. ‘Mainstream’ professionals consider ‘Reiki’ to be merely a placebo effect. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons classifies Reiki as Spiritual / Faith healing.
So what about our non-human counterparts? They know nothing of the placebo effect or faith healing. I use various energy-based methods; all have a profound positive effect purely and simply because energy is intrinsic to our survival as energy beings.
Think outside the box
I see time and time again the vast improvement in the emotional state of animals that very often also leads to the disappearance of any accompanying physical symptoms. Sometimes we have to think outside of the box. Just because we don’t understand something or we can’t see it, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
If you acknowledge reiki, you must also accept that you and the animals in your care are essentially made up of energy. You are far more than the physical body you see every day when you look in the mirror. The animals in your care go far deeper than the physical being that greets you.
Don’t let your potential go to waste
You have the innate ability to maintain the balance of your general health, not to mention all other areas of your life, and that of the animals in your care simply by tapping into your internal energy systems. We must always in the first instance consult with our GP’s and Vets where an injury or illness is present. However, mainstream veterinary practice does not generally deal with the emotional aspects of issues. This is where Reiki and other energy based therapies are in their own league, not only as an accompaniment to physical healing but to ousting the deep emotional trauma that results from illness, injury, abuse, grief, loss, and all the other emotions that humans feel.
If you are skeptical, it is only your limiting beliefs and outdated information that prevents you from growing, and stepping out of your comfort zone in order to achieve your true amazing potential.
Take a peek, I dare you
