"Switching" to the frequency of Self Healing

We now know that our genes can be turned off and on and that they are activated by "switches" so instead of saying "it's all in our genes' we can also now say "it's all on top of our genes" ...and wi [ ... ]

Our lives will remain in a holding pattern circling the same problems with the same old mindset trying to solve them until we are open to receive new information to take us in a new direction.

Most of us dream of a better life and we form ideas and plans to improve our life situation but quite often these plans do not come to fruition, in fact often the opposite happens as if there is some opposing force sabotaging our best efforts. 

But when we are brave enough to ask for direction we take the first small steps on the path to change and we realise that our darkest demons hold the potential of our brightest light

Contrary to our “positive side” we also carry a shadow side, a side which is influenced by our “darkest thoughts”, a part of us that we hide away from, in fact we fear this part of ourselves because it has been labelled ugly and bad. 

Positive change comes one step at a time when we learn to change this deep seated notion and love the “other” side of ourselves, when we understand that this “dark side” is merely our frightened sensitive little child, created out of necessity and that it is doing the best it can to survive in an often hostile world. To see that it is an essential part of our human journey to explore ALL polarities in order to get back to our original state of the powerful beings that we are

If we are brave enough to take another look at our “dark side” from a new bigger perspective we can then let go of all judgements....both of ourselves and others 

However unless we change our habitual behaviour and see these "demons" as friends we will never change the outcome of our lives. 

Neuroscientists have discovered that habitual behaviour is formed by old thinking patterns that create neural pathways and memories and that these “pathways” become our ‘default” position every time we are faced with choices. Through our life coaching research work with horses we have found that we can reverse these "patterns" to see that when our default position is one of low self worth, guilt and fear it is easy to buy into a mindset of “I do not deserve good things” and indeed with this mindset we will never attract positive things in life

However with the right information and tools we can change this, we can let go of these old beliefs and step up to claim our REAL inner SELF the part connected to spirit. In doing this we re-establish new neural pathways which will then over-ride the old ones. To achieve this all we need to do to is reassess this old version of ourselves and redefine our SELF worth through new eyes.  

Challenges in life often seem overwhelming; for instance when a loved one dies, when we are diagnosed with a disease, if our relationship breaks down, or we have money issues etc. but when we can see these “setbacks” from a different perspective, that in fact they are providing the shift or the wakeup call our soul needs for its own growth life can then take us on another journey. When we can make sense of everything that happens to us we gain a new sense of inner peace and we know we are going to be OK.

We all have a purpose and a reason to be here and once we can stare down our demons and be guided through the loving eyes of our unconditionally loving “inner parent”.........we are at peace and we are home.

Our Whole Body Intelligence programs of Life Coaching are conducted either as on-line sessions (All of Life Coaching) or as hands on equine facilitated sessions. Both services provide the keys for each individual to unravel the clues of how their life is directing them out of their holding ultimately be set free


If we persist in seeing ourselves as separate from the Universe we will continue to live in conflict, mistrust and fear because in this limited state we have no way out as we have no connection to higher guidance and wisdom; we are like fish out of water and alone but if we learn to accept that we are part of a broader Universal our lives not only begin to make sense but we unlock a potential greater than anything we could have wished for ourselves

The key to getting off the “treadmill” of life’s conflicts is to "experience" ourselves as “energy” beings. If we see ourselves as integrated electro-magnetic energy fields (spiritual beings) the world of duality and opposites no longer exists, we become 'neutral energy' created from a higher source and there is no more judgement of good/bad, negative and positive.....because everything is ONE

Our life coaching is based on a system of integrating this new “neutral” energy into matter (i.e. into our bodies). On a physical level this crossover of energy into matter (Heaven to Earth) happens between the Chakra points and the Endocrine system.

In our coaching programs you will become the director of your own “play” and be guided through a simply healing process that entails clearing the old blocked energy in both the genetic DNA and any old “negative” patterns and belief system that have been acquired along the way. Up until now these old programs have worn a track in our thinking and have dictated our life choices, NOW all we need to do is reassess these patterns and replace them with new Universal direction and guidance 

As spiritual beings we are continually evolving and it is only when our view of life changes that WE can change. We are essentially energetic frequencies that have the power to influence the outcome of our lives  once we have the right tools...................our programs provide these tools 

To gain reciprocal trust and for my horse to have peace of mind I must be “aware” or “conscious” at all times
“Being conscious” means that when we are out riding (or even working on the ground) horse and rider must both be on the same “wave length” and both be equally alert when danger presents.                               This is the same state of awareness or instinct we see in nature when birds and animals all take off together at the same time if there is a threat to their safety.

Emotional & Spiritual  Intelligence.... the missing link for a happy life.

For years our schools and Universities have placed the primary focus on teaching academic skills but it is becoming increasingly evident that healthy emotional and spiritual intelligence is equally as important to a happy, meaningful life. By developing good E.I. we not only have better personal relationships with family and friends but we are also more likely to be successful in our professional environment.
 If we follow the trends now seen in China and the US Emotional and Social Intelligence will be the next major focus in education in Australia as it is now being recognised as providing the “missing link” in the corporate world
In China President Xi, the new national leader stated that E.Q. is “more important than IQ” and “a competence that should be pursued in the workplace”
And in America teachers are calling for social and emotional intelligence to be taught in schools

Likewise in Australia the corporate sector is suffering because people are entering the workplace with only 50% of the skills needed for success in addition to this they are also missing out on learning the social skills for life generally.
According to recent research it has been estimated that a person's Emotional Intelligence Quotient (E.Q.) accounts for 80% of success in the workplace,

How Horses transfer Emotional/Spiritual Intelligence to Humans

"Scientists have captured the attunement of emotions in the laboratory by measuring the physiology – such as heart rate – of two people sharing a good conversation. As the interaction begins, their bodies operate at different rhythms. But after 15 minutes, the physiological profiles of their bodies look remarkably similar"

What the scientists are discussing above (part of a great article by Daniel Goleman) is the principal of Entrainment. In our work with emotional and spiritual intelligence with horses we “lock in” the higher frequency of the horse to cut straight through to the frequency we need to be a loving pack leader. The horse's vibration of unconditional love allows the experience of authority to be "entrained" at the same level within us and it becomes a conscious reference point for us to use in our day to day life situations .

For years now, "intelligence" has been wrongly defined as the ability to solve problems logically but more and more research tells us that "emotional intelligence" is of much greater importance in learning than IQ.
Healthy emotional intelligence means we are confident with our decision making, have good self esteem, can delegate authority fairly and reasonably, when we can see criticism as an opportunity for our own personal growth and when we can work coherently as a team
The reason it can't be taught "rationally" is because E.I. is communicated through non-verbal communication. It is called ‘an elusive concept”, a right brain experience that cannot be ‘taught” from a logical approach... it has to be ‘embodied’ or "felt" within the emotional field of our energy centres. Because of this there needs to be a different approach when it comes to teaching E.I.
Non-verbal communication accounts for over 90% of the way we communicate therefore horses (who rely 100% on NVC) can act as the perfect facilitators in life coaching to provide this missing provide this “elusive concept”
In order to survive in the corporate world we not only need mental strength but we also need to have spiritual and emotional strength to overcome what life throws at us generally including what comes up in our daily interaction with others.
Holistequine has been working in the area of Emotional and Spiritual intelligence since 1995 and our findings suggest that horses are the most effective bio-feedback tool for personal empowerment and for building self esteem generally. They teach us how to reach our goals in life by demonstrating how we can rise above our emotions and therefore not take things “personally”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            “Emotional intelligence, or the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions, is a concept that has gained prominence over the last three decades. It is now widely recognized as a trait necessary to successfully process emotional information and navigate the social world”........By RICK NAUERT PHD Senior News Editor
Holistequine Equine Assisted Life Coaching works through horse facilitators in private sessions, intensives, workshops and on line All of Life Coaching programs to teach life skills.

How horses can teach us the Art of Good Communication

How do we, as women effectively get our point across without being called aggressive if we come across too strongly or, conversely get "walked all over" if we appear to be too “nice”? To achieve a positive outcome in any relationship we need to understand what "real" communication means and why non verbal communication plays such an important part of the process.

To varying degrees we can all have problems in personal, workplace or family relationships; this happens when we cannot properly ‘read” other people and/or they cannot “read” what we are trying to get’s neither person’s  fault,  just poor “delivery” of thoughts and ideas.........Confusion arises when our subconscious thoughts are completely different to what we are trying to say verbally

Our Holistequine horses give us a reference point in energy where we can bypass the other person's subconscious mind and identify with their higher Self...........we bypass the emotions and work at the level of unconditional love

The art of good communication is achieved by aligning both the part of the brain that deals with language and the part of the brain that deals with “feelings”...i.e.aligning the verbal with the non-verbal
As we evolve we are becoming more sensitive not just physically (i.e. an increase in allergic reaction to foods) but we are also feeling more sensitivity in our emotional centres,  so with this in mind we need to rethink how we  "interpret" communication in our daily interaction with others.
As children most of us were never allowed to express ourselves openly and honestly as it was considered “impolite” to speak our truth. This set up poor verbal recognition often have we said one thing and meant something else because we didn't want to upset someone's feeling?

So we now have to do we navigate a path and walk the minefields of relationships, work situations or communicate effectively with family and friends in these politically correct times.
We rely on verbal communication in less than 10% of the time while conversing with others, so what about the other 90% of expression that is less obvious?
Verbal communication is a function of our left brain whereas non-verbal communication is an abstract /right brain facility
The key to successful relationships then is in understanding WHAT we want to communicate and then aligning our energy centres to empower our “authority’ to “say it” also through our “energy body” know that what we are asking is fair and is then communicated(both verbally and non-verbally)  in a non threatening, loving manner.
Unfortunately most of us swing between being too hard or being too soft in our delivery
The secret lies in understanding HOW we too, by aligning the parts of our brain that deal with language and ‘feeling" can communicate non -verbally and make the changes so that our intention is relayed in a fair and positive manner.............we then become empowered to speak our truth 
Effective communication is about mediation. Once we can “mediate” between our own 2 internal brains we can then express this balanced view externally to others
Because our horse ONLY uses non-verbal communication he or she is the perfect teacher here........Our life coaching horses teach us to trust the 90% that is non verbal and that communication is more about “who we are and what we do” than the emphasis on “what we say”.

As part of our interactive equine assisted life coaching programs Holistequine holds private sessions, workshops,and intensives whereby our horses teach us the art of effective communication.

We also train Equine Assisted Life Coaching Practitioner courses (EALC is a variation of Equine Assisted Therapy and Equine Assisted Learning)
