Energetic Therapy! The unseen sciences
For life to exist, the body must have energy, chi or life energy. For centuries the ancient energy healers had a profound understanding of this. I have been extremely fortunate to have sat with some amazing energy masters in my-time. These teachers shared many profound teachings showing me that life is bio-electrical.
My teacher shared with me that in chemistry, electrical energy is sometimes used as a catalyst to increase the rate of chemical reaction. Light can effect chemical reaction. This is the basis for photography. In electrolysis, electricity is used to catalyse or produce chemical reaction. In energy healing, prana or life energy serves as the catalyst to accelerate the rate of biochemical reactions involved in the natural healing process of the body. When energy healing is applied to the effected part of the human or horses body, the rate of recovery or healing increases tremendously.
If you are sensitive to energy and have had energy treatments, like acupuncture, you may have felt waves of energy moving throughout your body. When this happens the bodies blockages are released allowing energy in the meridians to flow and move freely.
Our horse's health will be vibrant if there is harmony and balance between the two forces in the body, yin and yang. If these energies are disturbed for long periods of time and the body is not able to bring the energy back into balance then illness arises. Frequencies of energy flow through very definite channels in the body, or meridians, and these are the body’s healing energy pathways.
The idea of a human aura, a radiating luminous cloud surrounding the body is an ancient one. The energy body interpenetrates the visible physical body and extends beyond it by four to five inches. In a horses body this is much larger and is why these amazing creatures have such a powerful healing effect on us.
I work very closely with this energy body and it tells me a lot about the horses nervous system, digestive, respiratory and lymphatic system. I am able to feel the quality of energy in a non touch way. I also use acupuncture to assist the moving of energy as well as rebuilding the quality of energy in the system.
While this may seem a little airy fairy to some our bodies are electromagnetic in nature. Below is a study done by Korean scientists dye was injected onto acupuncture points, Thin visible lines were able to see. These lines did not show up at non-acupuncture point sites where there are no meridians.
Your horse is much more than flesh and bones and if you are willing to open yourself to this possibility your ability to support you equine’s physical, emotional and mental health will supersede the everyday understanding. Blending the scientific and energetic is key.
