Therapies exist in which animals have the primary role. They can help us defeat fears and accept our flaws; in other words, they can help us become better people. Horses are among those creatures that have the unique ability to help you grow from all points of view – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
What is stunning about horses is that they will never refuse to help us, knowing in some way that they can be of great aid to us, to our development. Have you ever seen a horse run away from a person that needs help? Regardless of the problem, the horse will be there for you.
Our connection with a horse
How can a horse know something is wrong, or not, with us? They are incredibly sensorial creatures, responding to both positive and negative changes in our behavior and language. They will immediately react to the energies surrounding them, turning into real mirrors of what they perceive in their proximity, reflecting emotions and energies. Thus, in their interaction with us, all their reactions are in close communication with what we transmit. In various situations they better understand the states we are in, even before we have the chance to react, offering immediate feedback which is always a pure and honest one.
Since the beginning of time, man has been continuously fascinated by these animals. They were always depicted as being the perfect embodiment of power and grace, even though on many occasions they served as animals of burden.
For the people who respected horses and appreciated their company, these animals turned into their best friends, teachers and healers, showing them how to become better people.
How a horse teaches us to be better humans
Their entire herd structure tells a lot about horses. Each has a well-determined role in society, communication being an essential aspect. They have learned to communicate and be sensitive to the states of others in their herd because their lives depend on it. Thus, they will immediately react to the energetic changes in our bodies, being attentive readers of our body language.
The way they react reflects your inner state and energy. If you cannot understand what you are going through, being close to a horse will show a reflection of your inner self.
When looking at ourselves, we may be subjective and not see the reality we live in. We may feel unhappy but not know why. The horse will intuitively reflect your existence, so you should interpret its reactions around you just like seeing yourself in a mirror. If you are subjective about your person, a horse will not be. It is not emotionally involved in a relationship with you. This is what makes a horse so efficient in these readings. They do not know who you are, do not know your person, so they will see the real you and the energy you are transmitting.
Through the human-horse connection, we can:
- Master non-verbal communication
- Change old behavior patterns
- Learn to set boundaries
- Strengthen intuition
- Develop emotional intelligence
- Build confidence and self-esteem
- Learn assertiveness without aggressiveness
- Tune into your authentic self
- Open the pathway to healing
Horses can also help us connect with life and nature – things we forgot to do in modern society. They can inspire a feeling of joy and freedom. Studies show that their mere presence will increase the frequency of our brain waves. A horse will have an incredibly calming effect, reducing stress and improving sleep. They can help us heal physically and emotionally as well. In many ancient cultures, the horse was seen as a pathway to achieving a higher self, explaining the constant fascination of man for these majestic creatures. Isn’t it clear horses are magnificent creatures that aren’t only clever but also help people’s well-being? Let’s connect as much as possible with these beauties and share your experience with us.
