HORSES, COMPETITIONS AND WELL BEING

I have often been called upon to work on the physical problems of horses suffering from colicas or other problems during competitions, and I realized to my great distress that often (not always) the well being of the horse was not really taken into account.
Naturally my help was given along with the care and advice of veterinaries.
All the same, I was expected to cure with these words: “as quickly as possible”, “maybe he’ll be fit for competing tomorrow,” and especially “he has to start training as soon as possible.”

This posed a very difficult ethical question: should I really help if these horses were to be put to work immediately? Usually, I was well aware that a period of convalescence would be necessary. Do I have the right to insist on that? Will they really listen to my advice? Should I help the horse immediately so as to quickly diminish or eliminate his suffering?

When there is a serious problem, everybody panics because the reputation of the horse or the finances involved are so big. Of course, the rider loves his horse and wishes him well, but he is caught between his love for the animal and his work. He is obliged to make decisions that are not always for the well being of the horse. How can I explain to him that it would be better if the horse did not compete that day? That the medical decisions to get him “in shape” could have adverse results later?

I believe that one must consider the hours spent in planes or trucks, jet lag, fatigue, stress or even the anxiety suffered after being separated from the horse’s companions…or even the fact that the horse is anxious because of a companion’s suffering. Often, the horses are too tired, pushed too hard and have to make an enormous effort to meet expectations. They want to make the effort, to please you their rider, but often they just do not have the strength to do so.

Their riders do not always realize that their horse is suffering. For example, they do not necessarily perceive his anxiety or the beginnings of a colic. The level of physical or emotional pain is often discovered too late and only when the horse starts to limp or rolls on the ground in pain. That is why I think it would be wonderful if the riders also learned the language of communication, because it is the only way to really understand from the inside what the horse is feeling; it would also help to develop the riders’ capacity for empathy and perception. I truly believe this capacity is essential for every professional rider.

The time has come to realize that horses are sentient beings, that we have to listen to them, respect them, honor every thing that they give us, learn their language and create a relationship of collaboration with them. That is the reason why I created with Sonia Matt and Valerie Grenon the association Peace For Horse which transmits this education and helps horses in need.

When a horse cries, we do not see his tears. They are hidden inside him.

COMMUNICATION 1

Animal communication stimulates our capacity to perceive the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations of an animal. This capacity is intangible because it depends on our extrasensory senses: those of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clear olfactory, and clear knowledge. Animal communication is a different language than the one we usually use for verbal communication. It is our very first language, the one we have before the use of words.

 

Our usual way of communicating is first to perceive, then to decode our perceptions and finally to express them with words. What we perceive in the world around us and what we experience is tangible as this perception is felt through our senses. This is what I call the first language.

 

Animal communication functions on the basis of this first language.

It works thanks to empathy and through telepathy. I believe that it is this first language that allows species to communicate with each other or with members of different species including humans.

 

How can we reconnect with this language that we have lost?

I think that first of all we must be aware of the existence of this first language, to discover it in one’s self, then develop and refine it, polishing it like a diamond that we cut after removing the gangue. Thus, once polished, it can better express those subtle elements that we have perceived.

 

The Rough Diamond

This language is conveyed to us through words, thoughts, images, emotional or physical sensations (the five senses) and the sensation of knowing, truly knowing deep in oneself. We might therefore ask why, when a coyote is about to eat a cat, the predator does not communicate with his prey. The reason is that even if the first language exists, instinct is foremost and one cannot go against it. The coyote needs to eat by instinct and will not communicate with the cat and excuse itself for eating it. It is true that there are some cases when species that are not supposed to cohabit do live together, but that only happens rarely. For example there is the well-known story of a bear, a tiger and a lion that you can see on the web. These animals when rescued very young were placed in a refuge and became inseparable. I have also witnessed the friendship between a lynx and a fox as well as the close ties between a lynx and a doe at my friend Marie Noelle Baroni’s place where she looks after wild animals.

 

When all the beings on Earth and especially we humans will have   evolved to a higher consciousness, there will no longer be a need to eat each other!

 

How can we polish the diamond?

First we have to learn how to concentrate on one particular thought.

I don’t request that we should empty our spirit since we cannot stop the flow of our thoughts. It just does not work! The reason this is impossible is because our thoughts are a continuous flow. The only thing we can do is to become aware of this flow and avoid becoming attached to it; in other words, not to fix on what this uninterrupted flow recounts.

During animal communication the first important moment of awareness is to realize that our thoughts will continue to flow.

The second equally important moment is when we understand that we are not obliged to think of this uninterrupted flow as the truth. The thoughts are there, somewhat like a noisy child that disturbs you, but we are not obliged to believe them or to linger on them.

These two phases are important which is why I call them conscious communication.

I believe that in order to polish the diamond, we must first be aware of how we human beings function: we can lower the sound of our interior conversation, those uninterrupted thoughts which lead us astray and prevent us from concentrating; it is as if we were lost in a thick forest. We must also be conscious of the continuing narration that is always present in our spirit: reliving the daily news, criticizing and judging others, or just describing what we are doing.

We talk to ourselves all day long and we cannot stop this mental activity. For example: “Have I done all my shopping? Have I fed the dog? I must call so and so on the phone. I should have done this, I should have done that…”etc. All this makes for a lot of noise and prevents us from perceiving the elements of animal communication.

Once we become aware of this flow and manage to guide it, our consciousness can then receive the authentic information.

 

Many people who communicate explain that animals communicate mostly with images; however, I believe that animals communicate with all their senses just as we do. All the extra-sensory capacities of the person communicating can be developed. There is no one perception that is better than another; each forms a part of the possible variety of choices. When starting, each person should recognize and develop his or her best tool, and later develop the remaining extra-sensory perceptions.
