Seeing my clients through the eyes of the horses is indescribable to me. It's raw and honest. No one can hide, and the truth is always profoundly freeing.
How does it work?
Horses are prey animals, meaning they are stalked and hunted by predator animals in the wild. As such, they have evolved in ways that ensure their own safety:
As a result, they "read" everything, through sight, smell, sound, and by feeling and assessing energy. If YOU are present, they will also read you and communicate what they "see" in you to the rest of the herd.
Do your behaviors (sight) match your feelings (energy)?
Are you a threat?
Are you a leader?
A continuous flow of questions is always present. "Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?" never stops. In addition, the feedback you receive occurs in real time, so it changes as you change. Feeling yourself shift into a new awareness or state of being is one thing, but SEEING the impact a new energy state has on the horses anchors your knowing.
Not only does a change become more real for you, observing a sudden new reflection in the animals gives you the confidence to know that your energy and your level of congruency (matching behavior with emotion) MATTERS.
