This is a note on how the 'Insider Circle' and 'In a Box' Programs are doing. I have read your stories showing how many of you are on the cutting edge of having incredible experiences with your horses doing nothing… leading to something that could have never taken place if we had not be practicing the importance of the “pause” with the First Ritual, “Sharing Territory”. Some of you are going to be able to bring new discoveries to the horse world and me from your experiences being in this class. From these shared experiences, we will discover things together that will help the world of horsemanship advance and evolve. We are always in the experimentation of creating willing connections and growing friendships with horses if we are truly present in the moment. We want to be always learning more about horses. We want to be a student of the horse and comfortable not knowing where our journey might lead. What ever we reach at the end of the journey is usually greater than we can imagine. The horses enjoy our company as much as we do theirs and when this happens, the dance is really quite natural. Sharing territory in the “pause” of feeling connected, horses are more willing to bond up with us right from the start to learn and work with us, because it brings them a feeling of connection, well-being and companionship.
The amazing connection and results that some of you have been experiencing using the First Ritual, have taken place because you have learned to wait until the horse starts the action. Waiting for this to happen is an amazing door opener to the magical partnership that springs forth. Though some of you in the class may not be having such amazing experiences and results and maybe feeling like you haven’t found your magic yet, relax and trust the process, it may just be the circumstances that you are in. Your horse may take longer to bond due to several factors like abuse, something he has to get over first, or challenges that might be present in the facility your horse lives in that slow down the connection process. It’s also possible that you can’t stop “doing” and just be with your horse. Whatever it is, that’s in the way; it will disappear if you keep sharing territory.
I just want to say, please believe you will reach a result that is profound.
We all want to walk our own journey and my Method is to teach you how to do that.
Once you learn to trust the power of the “pause,” things happen.
After repeatedly sitting with horses, once the bond is formed, having shared many moments in companion energy, I find that I can jump into action and have a horse that dances with me as consistently as if he has been trained.
I want to address what I mean by companion energy. It is metaphysical, scientific and relates to quantum physics. It is tangible but not that you can touch it. It is tangible because it can be measured. It is a vibration.
Matter and vibration influence each other. In matter, there is magnetic vibration that occurs between two objects, in time they will synchronize and form a connection. When this happens love, communication and trust are the outcome.
If you are creating all kinds of vibrations, like wishing your horse would come to you, sending telepathic messages, or being distracted with other thoughts or feelings while sharing territory, you cannot connect as deeply. Also, if you are doing some activity with your horse like grooming, cleaning, or maintaining your paddock, at this point of the method, there is too much going on to have a cellular connection take place and mature.
The rhythms and juices you have in your body need to match the rhythms and juices of your horse in moments of the “pause” in companionship. When this happens communication is instinctively understood by you both.
To dance at liberty you need to have shared vibrations and energy to stay connected. The “pause” will bring you knowledge in how to do that.
If you are in the class, it would be very nice if you would share with us your experiences that are heart warming and show the value of using the First Rituals for the regular blog readers and those that need convincing or support to keep going. I am sure it would be enlightening and encouraging and bring more meaning to the absolute importance of sharing territory with your horse.
I look forward to hearing from you
