The Shift

I have been around horses my whole entire life and I am sure that this isn’t the first life time that I have had the honor of their presence.

The summer of 2015, Hanne Stiggard travelled from Denmark to my home in Alberta, Canada to facilitate the amazing CHCR class.  As the host I made sure that there were many horses at the class for Hanne and the rest of the participant’s to play with for the two day class.

I happened to bring my Dad’s buckskin mare Nikki, she is no taller than 15 hands and is one of the fiercest horses I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  She had asked to be one of the first horses that we chose to play with that morning and I quickly went to get her from the pasture.

As this horse facilitated huge change for many of us in the group that morning, I had asked her if she would like to have an Access Consciousness Body Process ran on her body, and that was a huge YES!

Quite some time had passed, and the energy dissipated and I was aware that Nikki’s session was complete at this time.  As I stood beside this “tough as nails” horse, I was thinking of all the times she kept me, my sister and my Dad safe.

On a side note, as a family we would spend many summer vacations riding in the Canadian Rockies, over mountains, through rivers and streams.  We did A LOT of things with our horses to chasing cattle and roping cattle.  My families “interesting point of view” about horses was that we had them to work, we had a lot of fun with them but there job was to work hard when we needed them too.  This was not an option for the horses that owed us; it was expected.

Now back to that beautiful sunshiny summer morning where I was standing next to Nikki mare, thinking of all the amazing things that she has done for me and my family, as well as thanking her for the beautiful filly she assisted in creating, four springs ago…….as the gratitude whooshed over my body, I looked into that horses gorgeous eye, as my arms were wrapped around her pretty face; I opened my mouth and THANKED her for absolutely everything.  Being a GIFT, and for just being her.  There was another whoosh over my body, Nikki was yawning and licking her lips as I stood there and cried.  I had thanked this mare and became very aware that everything in her universe shifted.  I was also very aware that gratitude for her was not expressed like that, maybe a quick pat on the neck and let out with the rest of the herd after a long day’s work.

The tools that are shared in CHCR classes not only have shifted so many things in my life, I can tell you that they will shift the lives of these amazing creatures that just keeping gifting to us.
