The Whole Body Intelligence System (W.B.I.)

"Whole Body Intelligence" is a system that involves a series of interactive exercises to integrate the human emotional and spiritual intelligence with IQ....... we achieve this either through the spirit of the horse.(in E.A.L.C.) or by interpreting the unique signposts on each individual's life path (in our All of Life Coaching courses)

Spiritual and emotional intelligence can be accessed through our right brain whereas IQ or logic is a function of the left brain. These two hemispheres become coherent once we interpret them as frequencies of Alpha and Beta. Alpha is the frequency of Nature and the animals whereas we are in the left brain Beta frequency when we are thinking and/or stressed. 

Once we learn to access and trust the experience of the Alpha frequency of BEING we can align it with our left brain 'doing" and work as ONE................because our horses exist between these worlds they can show us the way

Developed by Holistequine this system forms the basis for all of our Equine Assisted Life Coaching (Equine Assisted Therapy), All of Life Coaching and Holistic Horsemanship programs is twofold in that it not only connects people back to their Natural state of being (i.e. using their WHOLE BRAIN) but it also aligns the energy of the Chakra Systems of the body

Quite simply it is an interactive method that works with the horse to integrate left and right brain and the body mind and spirit through the body's energy centres.... once we have this head and heart connection we then begin to think with our hearts and love with our minds.

It is a system that works with the Laws of the Universe. A philosophy that everything in the universe is connected by energy, that every person holds a unique vibration of their potential and it is this vibration that the horse Life Coach "picks up on"......................

The W.B.I. method works at the level of our energy field that our body, mind and spirit "blueprint" resides and is where personal growth and healing begins.

Working through a series of interactive exercises we are able to align left and right brain OR  I.Q. and E.Q. with our "SPIRITUAL intelligence" which then changes  the client at a cellular level. Once this is achieved the client can then focus this powerful new resource to obtain their life goals

The result of doing these exercises (i.e. balancing our whole energy field) is that we then reprogram our brain to use the right side equally to the left brain..allowing us to co-create and bring our dreams into reality

It is said that humans use under 10% of the brain's capacity................through our work here at Holistequine we have found that our emotional and spiritual intelligence lies in the remaining 90% of our intuitive right brain.....and that once we have restored the power back to this side of the brain magic happens

Our bodies are primarily made up of an electro-magnetic energy field also known as our aura.

Put simply when our aura or energy field is low we get ill and attract "negative" experiences to ourselves in order to learn and grow spiritually but when we strengthen our energy field or aura we become healthy, self assured and our life is positive.

What is the impact of verbal and non verbal communication on our interaction with others?

To varying degrees most of us have problems with communicating in relationships and in understanding how others "think'. This is because we all view life through different emotional filters and when we are interacting with people we mainly rely on VERBAL COMMUNICATION and our 5 senses to assess the situation. 

Because our relationships are based 97% on NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION unless the person has healthy emotional intelligence and risen above their emotional filters chances are we are only seeing the tip of the person's emotional "iceberg" and "what we see is not always what we get". People will often say one thing and mean another (sometimes quite unconsciously) OR often they do not really know how to communicate their needs appropriately which still leaves us confused and doubting ourselves.  

This emotional energy field is imprinted within our Spirit and is where we carry our thoughts, emotions and feelings; both negative and positive. It is this subconscious part of our brain, this hidden part that others "feel" but without healthy emotional intelligence it cannot be expressed honestly 


The W.B.I. system clears the subconscious mind so that communication flows from Spirit to Spirit where pure intention is communicated clearly. The more positive the energy the more positive and stronger the thoughts. The horse, because of his/her finely tuned sensitivity and purity of spirit can "read" our aura and then, through a phenomenon called Entrainment they can help us balance our own personal energy field.

It is a technique whereby the mirroring or bio-feedback from animals (specifically horses) becomes the catalyst to bring the human body back to a functioning whole unit.

Health practitioners will speak of the need for an Holistic approach to health. In our holistic model of body mind and spirit if the spirit is healthy and our thoughts and emotions are positive our body will automatically be healthy this is because we begin living our lives intuitively through our higher Self.

Through the W.B.I. interactive exercises the horse allows us to recognize and claim our intuitive right brain, our creative side that is home to our potential. It is the inner wisdom, inner strength and inner knowing part of us that has been hidden or lost. To function successfully in the future we will need to have these two aspects of the brain aligned

The system not only works on balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain but also balances the energy of the lower 3 chakras to meet the energy from the higher chakras which then activates the heart centre; often described as Kundalini rising, a process that balances the head and the heart allowing us to "think with our hearts and Love with our minds"

"As above so below"

W.B.I. system links Oneness through the Spirit of Horse (the Spirit within the nature kingdoms and the Spirit of man).

As we move further into this New Age our vibration is becoming purified and because of this we will become increasingly more aware of and sensitive to our surroundings. This is an age of progression into ONENESS after having understood the lessons of the last 2000 YEARS AND; the message of "do unto others" and "treat they neighbour as they self". This philosophy of basic Christianity was merely preparing the way for us to be in the collective energy or oneness.

In other words we should now realise that we are all "in this together" and that every human being is an expressions of Universal oneness.

"Whole Body Intelligence" offers a unique method for personal growth. It is a system that uses the ("mirroring effect") of feedback to gain an understanding of ourselves and the way we live our lives. The W.B.I. system aims to balance left/right brain function (or duality within the personality) and integrate it within the chakra system.

Sessions can be conducted on site as one -on -one sessions or by correspondence for distant horse owners. OR in our All of Life coaching programs we can offer this system via internet replacing our horses with your own "mirrors" ..i.e. people, situations and animals. or anything that is in your life to give you feedback.......please contact us if you need a more detailed explanation of this concept.

For example..... We have people and situations in our lives that can bring up an array of emotions ie. frustration, fear, anger.

Instead of dealing with these people, issues or events AS INTERNAL BUTTONS THAT HAVE BEEN PUSHED what most of us do is blame and label THE OTHER as the problem, then move on only to find the same issues are again in our face in the next job, relationship etc.

Once we understand why we drew these things to us and what these aspects are "mirroring" within our own energy system we can internally clear the issue and change any future reaction. In fact in the future when in the same situation we do not re-act at all

The outcome of the W.B.I. System is that we have replaced this wanting to "run and hide" attitude with a strong sense of self. We have created a balance of intellectual intelligence IQ with intuitive "feeling" intelligence or EQ.

This integration has now created a "whole" or Holistic outlook on life. We discover our passion, our purpose and our personal power.

Our whole body intelligence cannot function effectively if our energy or self esteem is fragmented by duality. or if our internal dialogue is bringing up doubts, fears or other factors that negatively affects who we are. This conflict within weakens our whole energy field and render us as dysfunctional.  However during the  interactive exercises with the horse we are not only shown this weakened energy field but also shown a solution.

Some examples of situations where we might have unhealthy emotional intelligence (or dualistic mental state which causes conflict within)

  • We say one thing and mean another
  • We are frightened to speak up for ourselves and then get annoyed later
  • We daydream and then sharply come back to reality
  • We are too giving or generous of Spirit and then have to economize somewhere else
  • We think we are OK and then get a negative reaction from someone.
  • We have a goal or "to do list" but cannot generate our doing side into action
  • Something within us keeps sabotaging our goals.
  • We cannot remember things i.e. if we have closed the gate or where we put our car keys

We have a conscious, a subconscious and higher state of consciousness. The W.B.I. method brings the 3 levels together so that we function as a whole being. It integrates the sub-conscious ( the part of our mind that carries our past programming, our doubts, fears etc) and our higher mind (that knowing, intuitive feeling aspect of ourselves) into our daily consciousness. While interacting with our specially prepared horses the exercises trigger the release of these "hidden" conflicting aspects of ourselves. Because this system works with a persons whole intelligence (the 3 levels of consciousness together) it is cleared effectively merely by changing one's intention. Through the process of Entrainment the horses have somehow negated our dysfunctional patterning and we are able to move through it. Similarly with our all of life coaching programs every aspect of one's life can be "read" the same way by understanding (the interpretation) of why someone or something is in your life.

The Holistequine W.B.I. method (Equine Assisted Therapy) helps us to understand and utilize the energy field connecting all of life. In doing this we begin to feel "connected" through the human body, to the earth body and the heavenly bodies. Through the W.B.I. technique this connection, or intelligence is re-enforced within us through the powerful energy field of the horse thereby giving us the strength to reach our goals.

Physics and Metaphysics become one

The W.B.I. system is probably best explained through an understanding of the concept of Entrainment. We found over many years of working with our horses that being in the energy field of the horses improved our wellbeing not only physically but also spiritually and emotionally even to the point where minor physical ailments would somehow disappear after spending time around our horses. It was then suggested by a college Ken Grimmer (author and researcher of electro-magnetic energy fields) that what we were probably experiencing during this interactive work with the horses was a process known by neurophysiologists as Entrainment.

What is Entrainment and how does it influence our lives?

Entrainment is a physics phenomenon of resonance. It was first observed in the 17th century and has an effect on all of us. Entrainment is defined as the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. It is also defined as a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles. The principle of entrainment is universal, appearing in chemistry, pharmacology, biology, medicine, psychology, sociology, astronomy, architecture and more. The classic example shows individual pulsing heart muscle cells. When they are brought close together, they begin pulsing in synchrony. Another example of the entrainment effect is women who live in the same household/work environment often find that their menstrual cycles will coincide.

The history of entrainment is linked to Dutch scientist, Christian Huygens in 1665. While working on the design of the pendulum clock, Huygens found that when he placed two of them on a wall near each other and swung the pendulums at different rates, they would eventually end up swinging in at the same rate. This is due to their mutual influence on one another

The phenomenon of Entrainment can help explain our observations during the sessions at Holistequine of why when working with a more powerful energy field (the horse) we somehow by osmosis absorb his positive characteristics and mindset into ours and then go on to improve and empower our own lives

The Whole Body Intelligence system offers an exciting new challenge to explore the way we "think". W.B.I. marries the intelligence stored in the cells of our physical body with the intelligence of our higher intuitive centres. The outcome of this is a balance between our mental intelligence I.Q. and our emotional intelligence E.Q.

What are Mirror Neurons?

Empathy allows us to feel the emotions of others, to identify and understand their feelings and motives and ideally see things from their perspective. How we generate empathy remains a subject of intense debate in cognitive science.

Some scientists now believe they may have finally discovered its root. We're all essentially mind readers, they say.

In 1996, three neuroscientists were probing the brain of a macaque monkey when they stumbled across a curious cluster of cells in the premotor cortex, an area of the brain responsible for planning movements. The cluster of cells fired not only when the monkey performed an action, but likewise when the monkey saw the same action performed by someone else. The cells responded the same way whether the monkey reached out to grasp a peanut, or merely watched in envy as another monkey or a human did the same.

Because the cells reflected the actions that the monkey observed in others, the neuroscientists named them "mirror neurons."

Later experiments confirmed the existence of mirror neurons in humans and revealed another surprise. In addition to mirroring actions, the cells reflected sensations and emotions.

"Mirror neurons suggest that we pretend to be in another person's mental shoes," says Marco Iacoboni, a neuroscientist at the University of California , Los Angeles School of Medicine. "In fact, with mirror neurons we do not have to pretend, we practically are in another person's mind."

Since their discovery, mirror neurons have been implicated in a broad range of phenomena, including certain mental disorders. Mirror neurons may help cognitive scientists explain how children develop a theory of mind (ToM), which is a child's understanding that others have minds similar to their own. Doing so may help shed light on autism, in which this type of understanding is often missing.

How does an understanding of Mirror Neurons help us?

It helps us understand exactly what is happening in our lives. It helps us understand that every situation, person, animal etc. that we have attracted into our lives we have done so to gain an understanding of how our own life works. By what is being mirrored back to us we see a reflection of ourselves and what we need to change to become "whole" again.

During the W.B.I. process (when we work with the horse) we bypass this personal journey by clearing our energy field. The horses show us energetically where our "energy holes" are so we can gently plug them to become spiritually proactive and then life does not need to be a negative experience

How does Holistequine Equine Assisted Life Coaching differ from other forms of Equine Assisted Therapy?

In Holistequine Equine Assisted life Coaching the horse energetically acts as an archetypal representation of our life's mirrors for us to balance I.Q. with E.Q. This approach is unique to other forms of Equine Assisted Therapy as it aligns the whole person's intelligence into Oneness


The only way we can get the Energy to succeed in life and accomplish our goals is to clear our Energy field of what is holding us back....our technique can achieve this outcome.

The W.B.I. system is incorporated into our on line horse courses while working with your own horse and our All of Life Coaching Programs
