- Savvy Horse Girl
- North Lawrence, New York, United States
- I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. (In my professional career life, I am an associate professor and academic library director at a university. Which is how I support my horse habit!) I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. Although I've been around horses my entire life, I started Parelli Natural Horsemanship in November 2003 but didn't start this blog until May 2006. I currently am an official Level 3 student (I am not too good at getting my official assessments done - not a fan of being videotaped.) I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, Reiki, Photonic Health Red Light Therapy, Young Living Essential Oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, Bach flower essences, and more. Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Tonight, I was taking care of the chickens, horses, and geese after another long work day. Today, I had to drive to two and a half hours (one way) for a two hour meeting. It was really good but I hadn't slept well the night before. Anyhow, my chickens were not quite ready to go inside. I sat down and decided to just live in the moment and enjoy them rather than just head back to the house (like I have been). I found myself giving Reiki to the flock and meditating, eyes closed, and did a grounding exercise. Originally, they were ignoring me. When my eyes opened, the adults were not around (they were in the coop when I arrived) but the youngsters were all standing near me, quiet, totally still, and looking at me. Once I smiled at them, they moved on, ate and drank, and put themselves away. It was wonderful, lovely, and very gratifying. My horses, dogs, cat, and cockatiel all love Reiki too. :)
I use essential oils when giving Reiki (not all of the time but often). Sometimes just aromatherapy, other times applied. (Animals and people) I am drawn to certain oils with each client. (Crystals too - sometimes I use the red light after a session as an additional healing tool.) I use essential oils on my dogs and horses. I have a reference book, written by a veterinarian. I use it as a guide. I only use Young Living therapeutic oils as they are excellent quality and pure. I trust them. I have used them orally, aromatically, and topically.
I have a Reiki dog client that I used aromatherapy during his session. I used YL Grounding blend. He seemed to enjoy it. So did his cat sister. (Cats are a little trickier with EO's.)
The Universe is an interesting place.

Stop what you are doing and listen to your horse.....your relationship,will improve dramatically. I learned this clearly years ago when interacting with my right-brained introvert, Whiskey. (I am a left-brained extrovert). The task was hard for me but in the end, the lesson became an epiphany and changed how I interacted with all horses. This made my interactions all far more interesting, satisfying, and successful. How do you get started? I recommend a horsenality and humanality charting exercise....and often! Study horsenality articles, video, and more. And, if you can, get the reports done by Parelli! The work is fascinating.
