Would you like to be an animal communicator?
Do you wish you could hear what your horse was trying to tell you, and that he would better understand what you’re trying to tell him?
Think you can’t?
Well, there are some fairly simple things you can do, to improve the connection between the two you, and the likelihood of ‘actual’ animal communication.
You can try these things out by just sitting somewhere near your horse. Get comfortable, have your feet flat on the floor or ground, and your eyes closed. Make sure you’re not going to be disturbed by anyone (or your phone).
1. Don’t wait for an emergency
First up, if your horse has colic or you’re in the midst of a traumatic experience, now is not the time to try these things out! When there’s a personal connection with the animal, history, love, and attachment, you have far too much emotionally invested to get clear answers. Instead, practice when things are pretty good and there’s no urgency.
2. Remove emotion from the equation
On that note, before you start, aim to set aside all emotion. You need to come at this from a calm, balanced, non-judgmental place.
3. Empty your mind
Easier said than done, right! Make sure that your head is as clear as possible. If you do find your thoughts wandering (what’s for tea tonight? Did I turn off the stove this morning?), take a deep breath and focus only on the in and out of your breathing.
4. Ground yourself
Your breathing will bring you into the present moment, and into your body. Start to notice how your feet feel on the floor or ground beneath you. Let yourself get heavier and more grounded.
5. Think positive
Clear away any expectations, doubts, or any negative talk. Just be open and curious to whatever comes up.
6. Ask one question
Now you’ve got yourself comfortable, you probably want to ask your horse a question. I’d recommend giving this some thought in advance so you know what you’re going to ask. You don’t want to bombard him with a million questions that he can’t decipher. So, think about what you really want to know. It’s also beneficial to phrase your question so that it has a yes / no answer. If it’s an open ended question, and you’re a beginner to this, it’s usually much harder to get a clear answer.
7. Think pink
If it feels like nothing is happening, or that you’re not getting any information or response from him, just think pink. Visualise surrounding yourself with a bubble of pink light. It’s a bit like not approaching a dog that you know is scared of you. Sit in your pink bubble and you’ll be seen as non-threatening and a loving presence – then, who knows, you might get more than you expected!
The more you practice, the better you’ll get and the more you’ll start to understand and trust the information that you’re getting. Stay consistent with how you’re grounding yourself and what question you’re asking – if you do something different every time, it’ll be pretty hard for you to determine why it’s not ‘working’.
