How to Meditate with Horses - one way of developing an amazing intuitive connection with your horse.
I often meditate with my horses, in fact even if I meditate at home away from my horses, they nearly always appear in my meditations – such is our bond.
I find meditation with my horses to be a very empowering and profound experiences and a wonderfully relaxing way to gain insight and answers to questions that I may have or in fact to have more of an insight into the information that the horses want to pass onto me.
I have introduced many of my clients to meditation with horses, even clients who are already mediums, psychics and/or extremely intuitive.
The beauty of meditating with horses is that there is no right or wrong way to meditate and the exchange of information is twofold.
So how do you get started? Well the way I started was to just sit in the field that my horses were in, and I slowed my breathing right down and took slower, and deeper breathes, so that my diaphragm and stomach moved outwards with each breathe and my shoulders raised a little too, the out breathe also becomes slow so that everything feels as though it just droops and drops.
To give you an idea, try a nice deep breathe to the count of 5 and I mean a 1....2.....3......4......5 and then slowly breathe out to a count of 5. Expand on this until you reach around an in and out breathe of between 8 – 10 each – maintain that steady breathing. For me I usually find that once I have regulated my breathing using this system my eyes feel ready to just close, and I close them.
You will always be aware of everything going on around you even with your eyes closed. In fact once you take away your sense of sight, your other senses sharpen and you will notice sounds, birdsong, the rhythmic swishing of a horse’s tail, even the sound of their breathing – sounds that you may not have noticed before.
It’s the same with the sense of smell; I find that I will smell the grass, and the breeze, the scent of the horses, and the individual horses themselves.
This is passive meditation. You are not going on a journey, you are not being forced on a journey, you are in fact simply opening your heart and your mind to the mysteries of the universe and the rhythm of your horses.
Use this as your first meditation with your horses in their field, allow your other senses take over, and enjoy the new sensations that you will feel.
Next time, I will tell you how to open yourself up to receiving your horse’s images, and to receive answers to your questions.
