A few months ago I was invited to experience healing by the Equi-life coaching herd and it certainly was a transformational and very joyful one. It was also the first time that Maryke from Equi-Life Coaching’s horses had been given the opportunity to interact with humans in this way.
It is believed that horses know that all of nature is connected and especially in a herd all of the horse’s matter. When we enter into their paddock we too become a part of the herd, meaning that we matter also.
When our energy system is out of balance the horses collectively will assist our healing by gently moving over and around our body, healing is said to take place through the exposure to the horse’s electromagnetic field of the horse’s heart (which is said to be 5 times stronger than the human heart) when we are in this space our heart also will raise in frequency, especially when we are invited into their space with such grace and gifted with a feeling of belonging.
I first discovered that Horses have a capacity to heal us when I came across the incredible work by FreeRein Australia, see the link to discover more about how horses can heal.
What did I discover on that day?
I experienced the power of being in the present moment, not to take myself too seriously. The most profound shift took place quite effortlessly to my surprise. Zeus the horse whom I chose and who clearly chose me had been rejected most of his life. Maryke explained how he was a test tube horse sent over to Australia with high hopes of being a very fast racehorse. He however had other ideas and didn’t reach the expectations that humans had placed on him. He was rejected as being not good enough. When I was told this the feeling that followed was a very strong one, I saw only beauty and perfection in this lovely animal and said out loud, how could anyone reject this beautiful animal…. Then came the realisation and a wave of emotion that flowed from deep within, as I saw myself in the eyes of this beautiful animal… reflecting to me my perfection and years of rejecting myself… Followed quickly by a pony who decided that was the perfect moment to nibble on my shoe where we all followed with roaring laughter! Where we all spoke about life sometimes being a bit of a cosmic joke, and I remembered in that moment not to take myself and life too seriously. At the end of the ‘session’ this beautiful horse walked with me all the way to the gate – no lead, bridle or saddle – just love and a feeling of hospitality.
Thank you to Kerry who gifted this experience to me, Maryke for being open to a new and very different experience, and to Michelle for taking such great photos of the day.
