What sort of physical conditions can healing help with and is it suitable for all ages and all equines? Can healing help with sudden trauma for example?
Hands on healing can be used with any horse, pony or donkey and even the new born foal can benefit as it is non invasive and there are no adverse side effects. It isn't a substitute though for Vets advice and care. Healing aims to rebalance the energy field working on all levels and it has been shown to stimulate tissue repair and combat shock. In the elderly horse it offers a sense of peace, particularly in the terminally sick. Both chronic and acute conditions can be treated with healing - basically any illness or injury.
Often in acute situations and in the very young healing can produce dramatic and immediate results although no registered healer will ever make a promise of a cure.
I recently took an emergency call from a regular client who is a race horse trainer. They had a 3 week old foal who had been found paralysed in the hind limbs 48 hours before. They had been lifting him up top suckle every two hours, and it took two men to do it as he was very heavy. The vets didn't hold out much hope and also were at a loss to explain what was wrong, but thought that the mare may have rolled on him, crushing his back, in the night. I rushed over and it was pitiful to see him trying to get up and dragging himself along by the front legs desperately scraping the floor. He just couldn't do it. When the grooms held him up his back collapsed and twisted round and he had no strength in his hind limbs, they just dangled. The two men supported him one with arms around his chest the other holding his quarters up and I started the healing.
Very quickly the little foal became sleepy with the calming effects of the healing and I felt a lot of heat build up under my hands which were over the pelvis where I could feel the energy blockage. Several times he wobbled and they had to catch him and fight to keep him upright as he had no strength to stand unaided. Suddenly after about twenty minutes I noticed a change in the energy pattern under my hands, it was rebalancing. The groom holding his hind quarters noticed that the foal had put his legs down and was tentatively standing on them. Then he just let go - and the foal stood there all by himself. He was shaky of course but he was holding his own. For a long time we watched him as he moved slowly around the box, still a bit wobbly. Then the groom tried to give him his medication and with that he started running around his mother like a mad thing, and he couldn't catch him!
He recovered fully is now six years old and successful. So if you ever have an acute situation I would say to anyone - give healing until the vet arrives and certainly after. It can work very well.
I find it difficult to accept that healing can help horses or ponies with behaviour problems. Can you explain how it works?
Healing works on three energy levels within the body, mental, emotional and physical and unless a horse is balanced mentally and emotionally then it will not be at its best.
There is no such thing as a horse with behaviour problems - just horses behaving in such a way that they are trying to tell us something. So the first thing to consider when a horse 'plays' up is whether we are doing the right things to enable it to enjoy life. Horses need time outside to relax, every day for at least several hours. They need to be with other horses. We need to check the diet with a nutritionist as many personality changes are food intolerance's. Horses can also get dehydrated which affects behaviour as the body fills with toxins, so access to unlimited fresh water is essential. Saddles and teeth need checking every six months and after every fall or accident we should ask a physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor to examine the horse.
That said, horses are very emotional creatures and hold onto feelings of anger, grief and shock and I have had a great deal of success treating horses with healing to help them recover from these emotional hang ups.
A lady rang me to see her young pony who had just come back from a week with a trainer. She went away sociable and easy to deal with and came back extremely nervous, head shy and obviously traumatised because domination methods had been used. The pony stood in the back of the stable and shook when anyone came in. She also came back lame and with a sore back. As soon as I laid my hands on her I could sense images coming from her of beatings, side reins, brutal bits and pressure halters. The pony experienced shock and terror. A couple of minutes into the healing she started to hyperventilate. The owner was very worried but I knew what was coming. Sadly I have experienced it before - the pony let out a scream, not like anything you normally hear, but a wailing cry like a human would make in a torture chamber. This little shocked soul screamed not once but four times. Then she gave a great sigh and blew gently through her nostrils. Her head dropped and she swayed and then we knew she was at peace. The owner cried, she said the feelings of tears seemed to come from her pony, and of course they were the pony's tears that she had not been able to release. The next day she was a different pony, happy, chatty, loving again. Her behaviour was back to normal.
No animal is too young for healing. Prize winning donkey foal Mr Bumble was just ten days old when Margrit gave him healing.
