The Unicorn is a higher vibration of the horse according to Diana Cooper. They are symbolic of the pure enlightened soul.
"There is something about the outside of the horse that is healing for the inside of man." Winston Churchill
It is not just the outside of the horse
but the heart of the horse that is so healing to man.
The heart has its own central nervous system. The heart has its own brain. The heart is the power center and is the vortex connecting us to the Divine. This
is where our true intuition derives from.
A horse’s magnetic heart field has been measured at 10 feet, but we know it can be much larger than that. The equine heart is not much different to the human heart,
only bigger. Both are 4-chambered and pump warm blood. A horse heart is located in the same place as a human heart: between the lungs and ribs and above the diaphragm. A horse heart weighs on average seven to nine pounds.
HeartMath Institute has science behind its findings about how emotions affect our heart rate variability. If we are in a state of anger, sadness, depression (incoherent)
our HRV will show up erratic. If we are in coherence (in a state of feeling positive and energy renewing emotions and acting as such) our HRV will be harmonious and balanced. But their studies with horses and humans is what caught my attention. You see, they
also have science to back up how being in the company of a horse and sending the horse feelings of appreciation the horse will in turn entrain a human erratic, incoherent HRV to match the horses balanced, coherent HRV. Our autonomic nervous system; that
part of us that works without us have to count every breath or make sure our heart keeps beating is that part of us that does not lie. So, if you are hooked up to one of HMI’s heart monitor technology your ANS is what will be controlling the HRV. So
if you are saying you feel fine on the outside and hiding what is really going on the inside the ANS will tattle on you and show up as an incoherent HRV on the monitor. This is something the horse can tell without any of the technology.
This works when the human is or has learned to send feelings empathy and appreciation for the horse knows when someone is just acting nice on the outside and yet is incoherent on the inside. Therefore, this is so important,
the human when able to learn and show empathy and compassion will be rewarded by the acceptance of the horse. There is much more to this than what is scientifically proven, and I will get into that later.
teach us about self-regulation. They know our true inner selves by our body, mind and heart language. They have had to hone this ability in order to stay alive since they are a prey animal. But is it just that? HeatMath Institute has shown through a
series of tests that the heart of the horse has much to do with it. But is this just a physiological thing or is there more to it than that?
Horses mirror back to us what is truly inside of us. They know more about
our inner selves than we do. By listening to our heart, they can tell if we have heart coherence or incoherence. They can hear our heartbeat, they can smell our body odor, they notice every movement of our body be it relaxed or tense. Can they read our minds
too? So many of us know about telepathy with the equine and I know it firsthand. The new age of horse trainers knows how to use the inner picture when working with the equine. I use it successfully every day. My horses can receive and understand direction
using the inner picture much better than my spoken words.
The horse when in a comfortable surrounding can take those who are unregulated, un self-aware and incoherent and entrain them by mimicking their movements,
breath rate, and then changing their heart rate variable. HeartMath Institute has also done studies by putting 3 people in a room with two being in heart coherence and one is not, the two in coherence can entrain the third person to match their heart
coherence rate. The horse can do the same but on a much larger level.
When in the right company and environment the horse is able to self-regulate their emotions. They are not bombarded as much with technological
EMF’s. Their attention is not distracted nor overloaded by outside junk-stimulation like ours. Think of the zebra in Africa. They are so self-regulating they know when the lion is hungry and when it is not. They can graze next to a pride of relaxing
lions not expanding any unnecessary energy, their Intelligent Energy Management is running at its optimal setting. Because of this their decision making and their intuition is not depleted by constant worry and stress and know when the lion is hungry and hunting
and can run away readily since they have been able to manage their energetic battery by not stressing continually.
So, horses can entrain the human heart to match their heart rate variable. A rate that is rhythmic,
in a even flow and balanced. Its in a state of reserve but open and willing to give back compassion, appreciation and gratitude: something of which most of us have learned to bypass.
My experience with the horse
has been magical to say the least. And when I decided to throw away the old school way of interacting with them and open to a true heart connection, I was not really prepared for the transformation I experienced. But I had set my sights on being a healer
and in order to heal others you must first go through the healing process. Physician heal thyself. And then it became, Know Thyself. Knowing ones true inner-self was the turning point for me. The horse then invited me to know their true inner self and
the true heart connection was the fruition of my healing journey. That was when all the magic began to happen.
