Energy healing in its many forms has become a very popular way for people to enjoy deep relaxation and enhanced wellbeing. If you are a horse owner and have experienced this sense of peace for yourself, you might have wondered if your 4-legged friend would benefit from some healing too. If this is the case, read on, because I’ll be explaining a little bit more about how healing works and how it can benefit not only you but also your horse and the relationship that you share.
Albert Einstein said:
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.
Match the frequency of the reality you want
and you cannot help but get that reality.
It can be no other way.
This is not Philosophy, this is Physics”
We can measure this energy, and even photograph it (using Kirlian photography).

Energy Healing works with the life-force energy, enabling the body to fully relax, which in turn allows healing to take place on many levels. This makes it a very powerful therapy and yet it has no negative side effects.
Each of us may have a slightly different understanding of the term ‘wellbeing’. To me, it is not simply the absence of disease. I believe that wellbeing encompasses all layers of our being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The details of how this looks and feels may differ for each individual, but for me it’s about being able to truly enjoy each day to the full, being comfortable with who you are and feeling confident and capable to deal with anything Life brings.
All animals (including humans!) are made up of millions of cells which are inter-connected and inter-dependent. Chemical and electrical messages (in the form of hormones and nerve impulses respectively) constantly flow around the body, co-ordinating all its functions and — when well — maintaining a state of balance and harmony. This is known as homeostasis.
If something disrupts this balance it results in dis-ease. Thankfully the body is an intelligent system and so it generally knows how to restore its equilibrium. Although this is a natural process, sometimes the body can be overwhelmed, or get stuck in a condition of disharmony. When this happens it can benefit from support to help ‘kick-start’ the journey back to wellness.
Our modern world has come to believe that disease is a ‘mistake’ of some kind, and that it is to be feared and avoided wherever possible. In contrast, I believe that dis-ease has a purpose. It comes from the body’s response to something that isn’t working and, if we explore the nature of the disease, it can lead us to identifying a trigger and thus deal with the issue and make any necessary changes in order to return to the natural state of balance. This greater awareness also helps us in maintaining a good level of health and reducing or avoiding dis-ease in the future.
Next week I’ll look at the benefits of energy healing and how this relates to horses in particular.

* Healing is a very good complementary therapy and is beneficial in any situation, however you should always seek veterinary advice if your animal is unwell in any way.
