I hope this message finds you super happy and well. Machel and I have been having so much fun working with different people in our workshops. We are combining Machel's training with Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and my training as an Intuitive Eating Health counselor.
So what do horses and health have in common you might ask?
Horses are the perfect animal to assist us and allow us to get authentically clear about our thoughts, beliefs, values and habits that may or MAY NOT be serving us. I've heard Machel talk about this work when asked, why horses? Why not a cat, dog, a hamster or even a lizard? While we can't deny all animals mirror us, a horse in it’s presence and size makes our actions or inactions undeniable. You just can't NOT pay attention to what they are reflecting back. All the exercises we do with the horses are on the ground. Each exercise is designed to assist you in mind, body or spirit discoveries. Your experience or inexperience with the horse makes no difference in these workshops. This kind of work is perfect for EVERYONE who is willing to look within – self-awareness. This herd of horses is quite special - they enjoy the work, find people enjoyable, and partner willingly in our self discoveries.
Adding the Intuitive Health perspective, some might say, "You are what you eat." I like to go beyond this phrase and add you are not only what you eat, but how you eat it and WHY are you eating the particular food you are eating. This is more of a direct reflection of you and what is going on in your life. Our bodies mirror back through health or disease what we are promoting or ignoring. Our overall health is a basis in which we all work from, “how we feel affects the quality of our lives-success or failure”.
If I have fear in general or scarcity beliefs around food, money and abundance this will show itself in many ways. Having lots of money, nice cars, great relationships and all the delicious food we eat also cannot be enjoyed FULLY without our health or a least the understanding of where fear based beliefs are coming from. A healthy mind and body is fundamental to our well-being. Again, it's more about the "How" and the "Why," why do I turn to sugar when I'm stressed, "why" do I continue to restrict, diet, cleanse, when it's not working? Why do I believe my body doesn't deserve love or to be loved RIGHT NOW exactly where I am. Looking at the "how" and the "why" is a great start. Combining EAL (equine assisted learning) and Intuitive eating and health allows for many breakthroughs.
We are the only ones that can re-connect with ourselves and others. We all want to be better, to be that highest vision of ourselves. That may include being a better Boss, Mom, Dad, Daughter, Son or Partner, but looking deeper into you IS the starting point. We only have control of ourselves and taking that personal responsibility is empowering.
If you want to go deeper, if you want to connect and get a little closer to YOU, that pure, higher self - please join us for this all day workshop on Saturday July 23rd, 2016 from 8:30am-5pm.
