Sacred Space + Supportive People + Horses = Shared Success for All

In 2013 attended a Zen Mind Zen Horse Workshop with author and brain surgeon Dr. Allan Hamilton and his psychotherapist wife Jane at Rancho Bosque in Tuscon, Arizona. One night they gave us the homework to find a personal spiritual principal and to demonstrate that with our horses the next day.

My idea was about the life-sustaining benefits of creating safe places for shared success to occur.  It has been my experience in being with horses that when I acknowledge my own successful moments that I am happy and can notice and support the success of others. I am also able to accept and feel the encouragement from others when I am feeling good myself. Feelings of trust arise and a sense of harmony and belonging develops. Deep healing occurs on a soul level and authentic community is possible. Blending this concept with the present moment step-by-step Zen way of being led to the above simple equation. During the drive in to the ranch that morning I had a vision of how to bring each step of my idea into action with the people and the horses. Here’s how I integrated it in class, on that new moon of November 2013.

Sacred Space can be created simply by breathing deeply and consciously in the present moment. This opens up our senses to the natural world within and around us on a deeper level allowing harmony to be experienced.
 
When I finished grooming Mahto, Dr. Hamilton asked if I would share my presentation first. I said yes, and went to retrieve the items to fulfill my vision. The class gathered in a circle in the arena. I shared the first step of my vision, which was for people to bring their horses into the circle. I arranged the floral batik cloth on the desert floor and set the Tibetan brass bowl on it. Then I went to get Mahto.
 
Jane held Mahto as I stepped to the center of the circle surrounded by horses and horse lovers. I picked up the Tibetan bowl and took a big breath in followed by a grounding exhale. When the timing was right, I struck the bowl with the padded mallet and a comforting resonance vibrated from the singing bowl for all to hear.  Next I thanked the wind and called everyone’s attention to the clouds moving above us. We noticed the temperature of the air, the heat of the sun, and honored the previous night’s rain. We gave thanks to the Catalina Mountains that stood to the north, desert trees, horses, and ancestors who made it all possible.
+ Supportive People. Next, I walked clockwise inside the circle and tapped the bowl in front of each person’s heart. The horses stood quietly, some gently curious receiving the sound vibrations along with their human partners.
 
When light-hearted humans gather and support each other with unconditional acceptance and support for where there are in their lives at the moment, hearts open and minds expand. Everyone strives to be the best they can be starting from where they are. After a spiritual gathering we all go back to the rest of our lives as better people with inspiration to share.

+ Horses. Our big four legged companions are extraordinary teachers and healers at this time on the planet. They help us develop our sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate natures in a grounded way.  They can teach us how to get along in a group, how to set healthy boundaries, and how to relax and enjoy life.
Once the sound sharing walk around the inside of the circle was complete, I remembered the next step in the sequence of my vision.  It was for all of us to walk in a circle with our horses.

As we walked we sang the song:
We are one with the Spirit, We are one with the horse.
We are one with the Spirit, We are one with the horse.
We are one with the Spirit We are one with the horse.
And they’ll know we’re horse people by our love, by our love,
and they’ll know that we’re horse people by our love.

=  Shared Success by All. The heart felt movement of people and horses was profound as if we were resurrecting ancient memories in this circle ceremony. With each step, a feeling of joy and peace filled the arena and was held by the trees and surrounding mountains, as if they were thankful for this great remembering. The procession came to a stop once we were back where we started. Quiet smiles radiated from peoples hearts and faces as the horses calmly stood by.
Gratitude was shared with Dr. and Jane Hamilton by offering a braid of sweet grass from the Coeur d’ Alene Indians in north Idaho. This was all part of the simple ritual that I created to celebrate my spiritual formula in action. By reading this you are all part of the formula too: Sacred Space + Supportive Humans + Horses = Shared Success for All.
 
May your success and joy multiple with each step you take.

<![CDATA[Animal Reiki Benefits]]>Fri, 24 May 2019 20:25:06 GMThttp://horseheartconnection.com/news/animal-reiki-benefitsPicture



​What is Animal Reiki?
Animal Reiki is a non-invasive method for sharing life force healing energy with companion animals. This life force energy that makes up all living things can be focused to your pets allowing the healing energy to go where it is needed the most. Reiki is ideal for use with animals because it is gentle and can relieve stress, discomfort, and pain. Animals respond intuitively to Reiki's power to support the healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.

Animal Reiki Benefits:
  • For pets who are healthy, Reiki helps to maintain their wellbeing, enhances relaxation and provides an emotional sense of peace and contentment. This is great for when a new animal is being added to a household or herd to provide a nurturing space to integrate the personalities and pecking order.
  • For animals who are ill, Reiki is a wonderful complementary healing method that safely integrates with all other forms of health care. This is calming for both the one sharing and receiving Reiki. Great for vet techs, groomers, and veterinarians, farriers, animal dentists and chiropractors to add to their medicine bag to calm the animal, owner, and space where the procedure is happening.
  • For animals preparing to leave the earth, Reiki is a powerful yet gentle way to provide comfort and to ease the transition to death.

A couple of my experiences:
When I swim in the open oceans with wild dolphins, they respond when I emit Reiki life force energy into the waters. On one trip after a few minutes in the water with the dolphins, they were beginning to swim away. I took off my snorkel and fins and was simply playing, laughing,  and spinning in circles the warm salty sea. Next the idea arose to draw the reiki symbols underneath the water with my hand. Shortly after that, the captain of the boat nearby said the dolphins were turning around and coming back towards us. Energy received! Dolphins are curious and wanted to get closer to the source of new energy.

Here is a picture of Rico shifting in my direction to find out where the energy is coming from. Since horses are empathic sentient beings, they can sense invisible life force energy. They are highly perceptive to the emotions of the people around them. When the people are calm the animals are calm. This is especially helpful with horses, cats, and dogs.

Self Discovery with the Heart of the Horse 

From Linda’s journal: “Once you are touched by the heart of a horse, you will never be the same. Your soul will blossom and your life will change.”

Horse Heart Connection workshops and private sessions provide opportunities for self-discovery and expansive living through the way of horse. As we open to the possibility of horses being teachers and guides along our journey of conscious co-creation and discovering our authentic selves, we create a foundation of support with transferable skills. We can bring what we experience kinesthetically with our equine friends into our personal and professional lives. This somatic experience helps us to “get it” quicker and deeper than conventional processing that may focus solely on emotional and intellectual content. As we awaken to our own aha’s and insights into our behavior, thoughts, and emotions we learn how to safely create new patterns of living. Our ability to accept love, support, and success increases. This builds self-esteem and self-acceptance, allowing us to be open to unconditional love for ourselves and others. Connection all the work we do strengthens our communication and deepens our relationships with horses. Both horses and human benefit from the Horses Heart Connection way of being with horses and we have fun along the way.

Energy Work and Reiki With Horses 
Bringing subtle energy field awareness into the way that you interact with all life builds respectful relationships with horses.
