Energetic Leadership

Horse consciousness has much to do with becoming aware in the present moment to be able to perceive what might be going on. When I am talking about "Energetic Leadership", I am talking about two relationships:

  1. The relationship to your horse
  2. The relationship to yourself

and how much they are actually the same thing.

In this section I will be talking about experiences made by me or others and the pondering of them on an energetic level. Enjoy!

Today I found myself in a new situation with my good friend George, my teacher par excellence. The weather has turned cold and rainy and he had his rug on for the first time this season and I had also changed the routine on how I feed them. So this morning I wanted to come him into the stable area with his rug on, stand for me while I take the rug off and put it over a stable wall to aerate. This was a new idea of mine, him being helpful to me coming into the stable complex to take off his rug rather than me taking off the rug in the paddock. He stood outside the stable complex and refused to come with me.

Thousands have written about it, everybody wants it ... how do you get it?

Just this morning I decided to put a halter on George (he does not need it) and take him with me to collect Rosie. I too had a halter for her, I wanted to do a little walk with both of them before I feed them.

Recent studies conducted by the Institute of HeartMath provide a clue to explain the bidirectional "healing" that happens when we are near horses. According to researchers, the heart has a larger electromagnetic field and higher level of intelligence than the brain: A magnetometer can measure the heart's energy field radiating up to 8 to 10 feet around the human body.

Right at the beginning of my journey with my horse George, I still was very much afraid of him. So I would prepare his food and watch him in the paddock and when he was the furthest away, I would quickly sneak in, put his food down and leave again.

I was privy to capture moments of an interaction between human and horse that developed into pure joy and happiness.

Watch the slideshow closely and see how the energy of the human changes and horse follows suit. Watch the legs become synchronised between the two, observe the human to find the pure joy and see the horse become connected to it. Did you notice how even the horse starts to sparkle ... inside and out?

My dear George has produced another accident, a massive one again. This time I was at home but only got alerted to the fact that something is wrong because Rosie was calling out. I found this very unusual and so I left my work to go outside to check. 

In your own life and in your own creations there is no need for force. Now, it’s going to seem odd at first because you are so ingrained with the concept that if you want to create something, you have to gear up your internal machinery, whether it’s your mind, or your creative nature, or even your body. In order to create and be expressive, you have to apply a force to it.

It seems very unusual that you apply no force at all. There is no yin and yang. There is no positive and negative. It is an amazing and simple principle. But, perhaps, it will take a bit of time to get used to this whole new way of living and feeling. Oh, you’re going to find out that it is so easy and simple. It is almost – how to say – it is amazing how simple it is.

But, the programming and the conditioning and the overlay of human consciousness has it that you have to force. You have to push. So, let us get past that now and move into a new way of existence. Some of you get to this point, and you think, “What do I need to be doing? How should I organize my thoughts? What do I need to focus on? What do I need to concentrate on? How do I need to put myself in a type of box to be able to accept this?

What do I need to do?” Nothing at all… nothing at all. Simply breathe it, accept it in, and understand – if your mind needs to chew on something – understand this is a more natural way of living. It is the natural way of Spirit. It was quite unnatural – very, very early on in the formation of the angels – it was quite unnatural to changes to have to apply force into what would be your creative nature, your creativity. The natural method is no force… no force at all."
