I don't think I have any experiences with Reiki - but I think it is cool! Why not right? Our ancient ancestors were really big into this healing and process, so why not venture into this other "relm" today? Even though this era is so Scientific and Medical, our Ancients paths are still in existance.
I believe in those who are Psychics, and those who can communicate with animals. I think that the real ones are few and far between, but they are out there. You just have to be careful as to whom you turn to, and whom you choose to believe.
The experience I had, was wonderful and amazing! The lady whom I had read Nelson, is the sure thing.
She never met Nelson a day in her life, and she isn't from around the area so she doesn't know him personally or know of him, or his history.
The first thing she said was "This horse is depressed" and of course, I asked "why" and that lead to a whole back story. She told me that he feels that he doesn't have a "place" or belongs anywhere because he has been bought and sold so many times. He feels that he is used for his abilities, and then dumped.
He lost faith/trust in Human Kind because of this, and doesn't trust people. She told me that he doesn't see himself as the 16.3hh beautiful TB that he is, but he sees himself as a short, rolly polly, short legged pony.
I told him that he was going to be with me "till death do us part" and he said "proove it. That's what they all say" - she then turned to me and told me that I had a lot of work ahead of me, to show him that I love him for who he is, not what he can do.
She then went on to talk about "The Girl". I asked "who is that?" and she explained to me, his story.
I have to say though, that all the while she was "reading" Nelson - she was standing in his stall, on his left side with her right hand on his shoulder. Her head was down and she was breathing deep while looking at the ground.
Anyways, back to "The Girl" - she was his 4th owner and he loved her very, very much. She was young, in her early teens and they did everything together. They showed together, did lots of jumping, and she spent hours apon hours with him. She would sit in his stall while he ate, and would read books to him. She talked to him as though he was her equal, and they were inseperable.
Until one day, she didn't show up. It was his regular routine - being brought into the barn with his friends to eat, and then all his friends riders came for them, but she didn't show up. He waited, and waited, and waited, and still, she never arrived.
He repeated the same process the next day, waiting for her, and still no where. And the next day, and the next. That was the point where he got very depressed, lost faith and felt abandoned. He had no idea what he did wrong, why she wasn't there - he felt lost.
Then that was when his 5th owner came into the picture. He was taken away from all he knew. He never saw her again.
So - I had a lot of work ahead of me. I spent a lot of time with him, on the ground, to show him how much I loved him and that I wasn't going to do that to him. I did a lot of Natural Horsemanship with him, spending time to groom him and just be with him.
After some time together, we moved to the barn I am at now....to discover, that was the barn he was at, when "the girl" dissapeared on him. I asked the BO who she was, and I was given a name and date and everything there was to her and Nelson's life together while at this barn.
I was astonished. I discovered who "The Girl" was, and the story that the animal communicator gave me, was ture and accurate.
So, I had her come back out after 3 years together, and the first thing she said to me when she walked into the barn was "This horse will do anything for you"
