I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals!

Weekly Task Challenge: The Learning and Comfort Zones!

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or just feeling stuck, try the weekly task as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more.)

This week's task is all about the comfort and learning zones! Do you ever feel stuck in a rut with your horsemanship? Do you feel like you have stopped making progress or you are afraid to try something new, to progress further? Do you make excuses as to why you are not making progress rather than dealing with the issue at hand? Do you want to put new skills in your comfort zone but are avoidant to do so and don't know why?

Well, this week, reflect, plan, and react! Work on moving your comfort zone or your horse's comfort zone! Change occurs outside your comfort zone. This is the point where learning happens.

For more information on this important topic, you should consider consulting your Parelli L1 and L2 materials, read, "Move Closer, Stay Longer" by Dr. Stephanie Burns, and check out my "Move Your Comfort Zone Challenge" blog post!

Questions? Let me know! Have a great week!

*Weekly tasks are based on many different Parelli resources I have studied as well as my own ideas on how to proceed through my journey. Some of the content was copied to make it easier to put up in a timely manner. Please consult http://www.parelli.com for any official instructions or materials.
