Reacting to Energy Healing

Blog #6  July 29, 2015

You cannot do energy work nor take energy classes without it affecting your own health and you certainly cannot help others if you’re not prepared to help yourself.

I talk a lot about our body “SHIFTING”. That’s basically your body trying to release and re-balance itself. During the first years of establishing our business my body went through some major shifts. I remember finishing for the day with clients in the arena (Equine Personal Wellness Programs) and heading for the house. By the time I got there hubby had a blanket warming in the dryer and supper ready. I'd head for the couch and wrap myself in the warm blanket and then the chills and shakes would come. I’d eat supper, go to sleep for an hour, go shower to warm up and go to bed. Then turn around the next day and do it all over again.

I learned through the training how taking in other people’s emotions had been hurting me. I was fighting hard to protect myself but also realizing that I still had a lot of stuff attached to my body. With every personal energy healing treatment that I received another layer would come off. The practitioners would say to me a 72 hr shifting period was going to happen. You could set your watch to the 72 hr mark because that’s when I’d end up in bed wrapped in blankets.

When I started taking the Upledger courses with CranioSacral Therapy that was another entirely different level of energy work. I remember just about being sick before entering the first class because I really wasn’t sure what I’d got myself into.

I had discovered if my body was shifting by shaking (usually my hand would go) I could put my hand in cold water and the shifting would stop.  So at my first level of CST after many treatments my body started to shift. I quickly had someone get me ice water to shut down the shifting. I felt at the time embarrassed that my body would not behave itself but also knowing that at least the water treatment worked.

When I took my 2nd level and started to shift and asked for water my instructor said “NO WAY!” I wasn’t impressed but she actually did me a favor. She said there are four of us with you and you need to experience a total release and let go of the control. That was a huge step for me!! But I did it and what an amazing experience and life changing moment. Thank you!!!

With every new tool learned the journey has continued and more amazing insights have developed.  My body has released many layers, the shifting now energizes me and I respect and try to listen to what my body needs.

We spend so much of our day "doing" instead of "listening". Maybe take a moment today and "Listen" to what your body needs to be healthy.

You so deserve to be “Healthy”! Just take the next step.

Stay tuned for more of the journey.

Experiencing Energy Work

Blog 5 July 23, 2015

Though the various Energy Healing Workshops I really thought I was taking the courses so I could help our horses. But most of the training involved first learning on humans and then getting special advanced training for the horses.

When we created the Equine Wellness Programs something became very obviously if I could help the horses with their health why wouldn’t I want to do that for our clients.

The next course I took was Bodytalk Access. This was a course where it seemed everyone learned how to tap their head and breath. My left brain kept kicking in and saying this is crazy! I knew that in order to really understand and commit to energy work there had to be some science behind it and I had to prove it to myself. After each course I asked for volunteers to have private sessions with me so I could practice my new skills.

Here’s where it got interesting. I had 8 people that had treatments with me on the methods learned in Bodytalk Access and I kept a record of their health before and after treatments. Through a 4 week period clients told me their digestive system was much improved, headaches were gone, sleep patterns had improved, energy had improved and they felt lighter in their moods.

 Well there comes a time where you either believe or move on. It’s one thing to experience some healing energy yourself but when you have a group of people that are telling you individually what is happening to their body that’s when the wake-up call comes.

There are a lot of doubts that go through your mind. One of them is that people will think you are crazy if you tell them about what you’ve see or felt and then how do you explain what the treatment has done for you. We spent the first few years quietly doing the energy work with the horses. But after you see amazing results with the horses and people you have to finally take a stand with your beliefs.

If someone had told me I’d be writing a blog 10 years ago I would have told them they were crazy!! I’m proud of what we’ve done in the last 10 years. I’m proud of the people we have helped both in their health and grieving process. Would I change anything? Probably not! The learning has been amazing and does continue to happen. Each day is another experience.

I’m heading into the 6th Blog.  There is still so much more to tell.

Stay tuned

Equine Personal Wellness Programs

Blog #4  July 14, 2015

Have you heard of our “Equine Personal Wellness Programs?” When we first started to create Roycan’s Country Haven I wanted to combine my Human Resource training with horses. Instead of teaching in boardrooms I wanted to somehow move that format to the arena with the horses. I started doing a lot of research and found other programs out there but nothing that seemed to totally fit with where I wanted to do.

I’d been a horse lover all my life. My dad brought me my first horse. Through the energy work I realized I felt things with the horses that most people didn’t. I’d seen how they could mirror your emotions and calm you down when your world was falling apart.

I started creating a format for working with clients using the horses.  Then I invited various business people to come out and experience a workshop and afterwards give me their honest feedback. From there the program began. I started slowly with just a few clients and then I had a Clinical Therapist who wanted to have sessions.  The end result was we formed a partnership and created group workshops using both of our talents.

 I trained our staff to understand the energy fields of the horses and how to clear the horses after they had taken in client’s emotions. Horses will naturally release people’s emotions by running in the field and rolling.  When you are in a workshop it’s hard for them to freely release when they are suppose to be working.

Through the use of the pendulum training our staff was able to keep the horse’s energy meridians open and allow them to release the emotional vibrations that they were taking in. Our staff was always aware when the horses had their fill of emotions and needed to be taking out of the sessions and relax.

These workshops are amazing to be a part of and witness the healing process. Sometimes it isn’t easy but here’s “WHY WE DO IT!”

-I witnessed kids leaning into the horses and letting them take their pain. THAT’S “Why we do it!”

-I witnessed a little girl blowing air into our 16.2HH horse’s face so he will connect with her and remember her. THAT’S “Why we do it!”

-I witnessed a little girl that asks if she can spend time with just me with the horses. Her relief and gentle smile when I said yes. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

-I witnessed a mom hugging the big black morgan stallion and allowing the tears to come. She was saying her goodbyes knowing her time on earth was fading but during that moment was allowed to feel some release of the pain. THAT’s “Why we do it!”.

- I saw individuals going through the grief labyrinth walking side by side with the spirit horse and allowing the horse to reach out and comfort them on their journey. THAT’s “Why we do it!”.

-I’ve seen a child that never smiles and hasn’t experiences any joy, finally smile at the horse and reach out for that connection with the horse. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

-I’ve seen client’s who have returned from war with all their emotions tied up in knots finally release those emotions with their first touch of the horse. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

-I’ve witness a grieving wife approach the horse and see the horse just put his head into her chest and allowing her to grieve the tears away. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

-I’ve witness our stallion screaming for my dad to come to him because he wanted to share and comfort him because he had just been told he had cancer. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

-I’ve seen parents who have lost their child, reach out to the horse for comfort and finally be able to release some of the pain in order to slowly move on to another day. THAT’s “Why we do it!”

- I witnessed the kids saying goodbye and giving hugs and asking to return (the next day!!). THAT’s “Why we do it!”

Are we tired? Yes      Do we feel overwhelmed? Yes     
Are we reaching out to others? YES
Is it worth it?  YES YES YES……..

 Stay tuned.  Till next time.

Learning Energy Work

Blog July 7/15

So I’m assuming your “FEAR” has not totally disappeared? It does take time. After a few more sessions with other Energy Healing Practitioners I decided to get brave and start taking some courses. The very first one I took was Acupressure and pendulum work. At the time I figured it was pretty safe to learn all these new skills and practice on our horses. Ok that statement alone did come back and bite me! My instructor was someone who came out to our facility and spent 10 days with me.

When he first showed me my pendulum and how he could make it spin and show yes and no’s, I thought ok this is pretty cool.  Then he gave it to me and NOTHING! I mean that pendulum didn’t even move! Then he takes it back and “Clears it”. Wasn’t sure what that meant at the time but when he gave it back to me the pendulum very, very slowly started to move. Then bang instant HEADACHE! I let go of the pendulum and headache stops IMMEDIATELY. 

Of course my left brain thought it would be a good idea to pick it up again! Bang HEADACHE. So I looked at him and he’s laughing and said you have a lot of “CRAP” in you. I wasn’t finding this too funny. But he talks about my energy field and teaches me to create the field around me of protection. Guess what happens the headache goes and the pendulum starts to spin!

We ventured out of the barn to start learning about acupressure points in the horses. Now by this time I’m starting to take this whole energy thing a bit more serious because I don’t appreciate feeling pain myself.  I have a gelding that was very connected to me. We actually felt each other’s pain. I know that sounds crazy but there’s numerous people that are witnesses to it. The instructor started teaching me the various acupressure points and meridians on the horse. When I tried to release the points I felt everything from chest pain, to chills, to headache and even wanting to pass out. Not a fun experience!!! Then he taught me how to ground myself, BREATH through the energy and it was amazing how the pain went away. During this process you have a 1200 lb animal making weird faces, passing gas, getting very sleepy and sometimes wanting to just lie down. The horse would actually point to a spot and sure enough the acupressure point was blocked.

It was an amazing experience!! By the 10th day I was mentally and physically exhausted. But there was one more lesson. The last night I was so tired if you had asked me my name I couldn’t have told you. I finally went to bed but around midnight I woke up and just wanted to cry and I mean cry. I had no idea why. It just felt I needed to get a lot of crap out. The next morning needless to say I looked like a train wreck and I sheepishly told my instructor what had happened. He stood there and laughed when I told him. Then he said “It took you long enough!!” Not understanding what he meant I must admit I was a little pissed!

Then he explained we all take in emotions from other people and situations and I certainly had not been protecting myself. So I had a lot!! Those emotions or what is called emotional cysts have to be released at some point in order for your body to be healthy.

When the energy field is tight to your body, those emotions just keep piling up all over your body. Crying is just one way to release the emotional cysts. Through future training I learned that emotional cysts actually have a vibration and if not addressed can cause major health problems both mentally and physically.

It was all such a learning curve and it continued to be quite a journey with the horses. But it was only the beginning….

How much protection do you have around yourself? Can you walk into a room feeling really good and then the people in the room who are all in a bad mood, just suck you dry?  You come out of the room feeling really bad or depressed.
If you can relate then you are not protecting yourself and putting up a shield.

Stay tuned. Till next time.
