The difference between Holistequine Equine Assisted Life Coaching and Equine Assisted Therapy
The main difference between the two is that Holistequine is a method that focuses on a client’s potential whereas “Therapy” infers a healing or treatment of a “problem”. Holistequine works with a vibrational model of the “whole person” to correct imbalances in the energy field, imbalances to our higher centres which can ultimately cause emotional problems, negative thinking and even poor health.
In “therapy” and in life generally our energy (or our ability to experience events) is judged and broken down into good/bad, positive/negative. While working with our life coaching horses to develop our Whole Body Intelligence system we have been shown how to maximise our entire energy field to get a result, in other words the Holistequine model takes full advantage of a client’s “whole” energy to achieve goals. In claiming our entire force field our full potential is then used, not broken down and dissipated.
If our left and right brain are not synchronised and they work as 2 separate entities we have mental confusion at best (la-la land) and mental disorders like paranoia even schizophrenia at the worst end of the scale AND we also have poor emotional intelligence…which is becoming a huge problem in society today
Imagine if we are daydreaming one minute and then suddenly brought back into reality the next by someone speaking to us…..this is another example of “tuning out to life” i.e. left/right brain dysfunction. Horses do not have this brain “separation”, exhibited by their immediate reflex response to danger. Horses are animals of fight/flight so when they are working with a human client they immediately recognise this imbalance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and through some simple exercises they mirror back to us what we need to do to correct it………………we are then on the path to developing new neural pathways for our RIGHT BRAIN and consequently we can begin to open a channel to access our potential.
We only ever have a “PAST” reference point for anything we do and it is these past references that are an accumulation of our experiences that if too negative can hold us back.
Imagine someone suggests to you that you embark on a new venture, your mind might get excited and will scramble to “imagine” these new possibilities but these new possibilities and all the potential they hold have not been created yet and are the realm of the imaginative, right creative brain, however if the old neural pathways are deeply entrenched we will mentally “talk ourselves” out of it…..in trying to keep us safe our well worn subconscious mind has the ability to sabotage our future without us even being aware of it therefore new positive neural pathways need to be created to counteract this…………….
Our left brain is our intellect, our logical side which carries all the information not only from our own experiences but also information stored in our DNA from our genetic line…………..experiences of life’s disappointments that over time get hard wired into the brain subconsciously hold us back from creating our future.
The secret then is to develop the potential of our right brain where we live in a world of possibilities…….a side of the brain we now need to fill with new positive neural pathways to complete our visions.
Our horses show us how to work with this energy model to correct any imbalances which affect our Chakras.
Chakras are energy points of the body which sit at the interface of the Endocrine System controlling our mental/emotional wellbeing. What is not widely understood is that these same vortexes of energy if not balanced also have a detrimental effect on our health at the physical level too.
When we see ourselves as “whole body intelligence”, see that we are more than just our physical bodies and we then begin to understand just how easy it is to work with this energy model to balance our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing as ONE WHOLE UNIT
Holistequine IS maximizing human potential through the Spirit of the horse
