My horse was a dangerous nightmare… until she spoke to me and then everything changed

unnamed“My horse, Rose, is so mean to me.  She bites me, steps on me, she won’t let me put her bridle on, and she turns her backside to me when I go in her stall.  Today, she ran away with me during our riding lesson.  I feel so embarrassed, and it was scary too!  Why is she acting this way?  I’m discouraged… and am so worried.  Help!!

Cindy was so upset, worried and frustrated she was in tears as she poured her heart out to me.

She said, “I always bring her treats, her favorites.  I give her all kinds of special attention.  I’ve spent a fortune buying the best saddle and equipment, and she’s had the very best trainers.  I don’t understand… why doesn’t she appreciate all I do for her?”

So what’s really going on when our animals behave like this?

Are they really so unappreciative of our care, love and concern?

Are they just trying to make our lives miserable?

Do they hate us and would rather go live with someone else?

To solve problems like this one, we need to stop a moment and reflect on much deeper issues.  The Human Animal BodyMind Connections principles tell us that animals often mirror us.  They reflect us on many levels.  They act out our stress and wounds, and carry our illnesses and diseases.

For instance, how does the person feel about themselves and their life?

Do they respect themselves, set clear boundaries, confidently show others how they want to be treated?

Do they feel heard in who they are?

Or do others constantly invalidate and intimidate them?

Are they afraid?

How are they sabotaging or undermining themselves, their dreams and goals… and even their relationship with their animal?

Remember that other Beings in our lives to serve us by reflecting back to us the lessons we are here to learn.  Many companion animals choose to spend their lives attempting to break through our barriers, help us heal and become reconnected with all Life.

Animals are sentient, intelligent, wise beings.  They are Angels, Teachers, Guides and Healers. They think, feel, wonder, and reason, and they certainly have their own viewpoints and beliefs.  There is so much we can teach each other when we speak the same language.

When we evolve enough to recognize, respect and revere them for who they truly are, they help us heal, evolve and grow and we become better people.

When we talked to Rose, she told us that Cindy was too timid, scared of her own shadow and was seriously out of balance.  Parts of her energy field were missing entirely, leaving her muddled and insecure.

She meant well, but the bottom line was, Rose didn’t feel very safe with her.  Cindy gave away her power so much that Rose didn’t have a good leader to follow that she could trust.  Cindy hadn’t earned the mare’s respect or love.

Deep BodyTalk System healing for Cindy, enlightening discussions about Rose’s viewpoint and wisdom got us in the right direction at last.  Training guidance to help Cindy establish herself as a clear and confident horsewoman.  Synchronizing their hearts and minds so they could feel each other and dance as one, everything changed.

Enrolling Rose as her teacher and partner, together they started enjoying an amazing, extraordinary relationship!

Rose and Cindy became renowned for the incredible things they could do together.  Other riders envied them their closeness, and the way Rose took care of Cindy even when Cindy messed up occasionally.  Rose’s big heart and good will showed in the loving, happy look in her big brown eyes.

A painful nightmare situation with a seriously unhappy potential ending became a dream come true.

Can you imagine what amazing things you can learn when you learn how to talk to animals?

Every animal lover can learn how to communicate with animals!  Yes, some students are better than others.  Some of us work harder at it than others.  With education, practice and guidance, anyone can experience the joy of talking with animals.

Learning to communicate telepathically helps us better understand the beings that share our lives, expands our understanding about the circle of life and our place in it.  And part of the fun of having animal partners in our lives is, after all, sharing life’s experiences from a variety of viewpoints.

And THAT is what the Heart School of Animal Communication and the Animal Talk Coaching Club is all about!

BIG hugs to you and your Angels, Guides, Healers and Teachers disguised as animals

    The first horse I rescued earlier this year was a thoroughbred mare named Honesty. Honesty had been sold to a kill buyer and was on her way to slaughter. I just had to help her, so I paid her bail money and had arranged transport pick her up quite far from my home. At the same feedlot there was a young buckskin pony that no one could handle as she was too frightened to let anyone get near her. I waited to see if anyone would take the pony, but no one did and she was about to ship to slaughter, so I told the feedlot rep that if we could get her on the trailer, I would take her. I knew that was a big IF, so that night I talked to Honesty, who was a 5 hour drive away from my home. We talked about her experiences prior to her rescue, which is another story, but also about the pony. I told her about the two trailer rides she would have over the next 24 hours. Honesty told me that she was used to being trailered when she was a racehorse, so that did not worry her much. I asked her to please help the pony get on the truck to save her life. We agreed that Honesty would be a “big sister” for this young pony. The next day I got a call from the woman doing the transport. She said Honesty went on the trailer but she could not get the pony to get on until Honesty looked back at the pony and seemed to speak to her, she said. Then the pony got on the trailer and both lives were saved.

    Both of these horses are wonderful. After some work, the pony has become very friendly, and is now the first to greet anyone who comes into the paddock. Her name is Bella and Honesty is still her big sister. Thank you, Val, for making this kind of experience seem more normal and for teaching us how to be better communicators. My new communication with my horses has been life transforming.
