I have always done kinesiology with my pets, starting with my son’s Axolotle (Mexican Walking Fish) back when I was first studying kinesiology.
Not only has my pet benefited but my own journey of personal growth has been supported through the development of trust and intuition. Lately I have been doing more of it and with these experiences a whole new level of understanding has emerged.
My first experience of kinesiology with animals was 27 years ago now. My son was only 7 and loved reptiles. He had already lost one Axolotle and his second one didn’t look like it would make it till morning. In desperation I tried this weird stuff I was learning. What came up was a struggle to breath and an awful sluggishness. We balanced for this and it made it through the night.
When we got it to the pet shop the next day we discovered we had been sold a 1’ tank instead of a 4’. The poor thing was drowning in its own excrement and had no oxygen as a result – hence the breathing and sluggishness. New tank, new weekly cleaning regime and all was well. It happily survived for many years after that.
Around that time I also started using Bach Flowers on my cat who had gone quite crazy after the addition of an overly enthusiastic beagle puppy. I consistently noticed a huge shift in her behaviour every time I gave her drops. All this reinforced for me how powerful this vibrational work was even though was it was kind of flakey.
Since then I have always given my pets regular tune-ups, checking in that they are happy in themselves. Lola in particular has had a number of sessions, firstly to settle her in as a rescue and secondly after her back injury a few years ago. She knows when she needs some support and jumps into my lap for a tune up.
Lately, I have been seeing more animal clients and even my first horse client, Rose. Rose, was a great case study. I had gone out to my friends property to have a play with her herd of horses. When I arrived Rose came up to me and we started to do some ground work, then my friend noticed that she had a bit of a limp and a swelling on her back. It was an old injury that had flared up.
Rose is a strong willed Arab had a history of a (probably quite) stressful 10 years in the show world. She had then lucked into my friends herd about 7 years ago where her nervous system learnt to relax.
As I worked with the injury it was apparent that it had stored a great deal of emotional pain. Once we cleared that the injury itself sorted out quickly. Rose wandered off as I finished, had a big sleep and the next day all the swelling and pain was gone. The plan was some horsey time and then a balance for her dog, Honey, who was getting extremely anxious whenever my friend worked her horses; so we moved onto that.
The interesting thing was that before I could start with Honey I needed to balance my friend. (In kinesiology testing you follow a step by step process that will tell you want to do next). It turned out my friend also had an old back injury that was playing up. We sorted that out and moved onto Honey. Somehow all three were interconnected and one supported the healing of another.
When I arrived a few weeks later for a little more horse time, Rose the horse was still fine. My friends back was good. And on observing Honey as the horses were worked, it was apparent that a whole layer of anxiety had been released. She still wanted to be involved, but she is an Australian Shepherd and that is part of her DNA.
The really insightful thing was that all the horses had been down the paddock but about 5 minutes before I arrived all 6 moved up to the ring, where I park, and Rose and Honey were greeting me before I even got out of the car. This was again more evidence of our interconnectedness. And truly understanding the depth of what that means can make a profound difference in our lives. We can start to see how much is unseen but still very real in our world.
So ask yourself when have you experienced that level of interconnectedness? When have you have thought of someone and they ring? Do you accept these experiences as truth? Do you trust these moments and know they are part of something more? Or do you only listen when you want to, when it makes sense and then deny it when things aren’t working?
It is interesting to reflect on how much we may miss out on if we use our intellect to process the intuition.
None of those horses would have been there to greet me had they been discussing the likelihood of me arriving that day and that time. No one told them that I was coming. We hadn’t synchronised diaries. And the time slot was loose. But listening and responding took them to the right place at the right time. Holding this truth will change everything about how we act and respond in the world. We truly are not alone and there is guidance, help and support available, we might just not be listening!
And, if it is not forthcoming it may be that there is something more to learn at this moment.
We can start by practicing listening to our intuition and responding when the outcome matters little. We may make some random choices that may raise some eyebrows however it starts us developing a trust in that quiet sense. As we learn to listen more deeply the messages become stronger. We may never hear a voice but we will start to get a strong sense of what is right for us. By trusting that, anxiety will start to drop away and we can relax into this existence a little more deeply.
