Had Reiki and pendulum with my horses today under a big old tree, by Amanda at The Wholistic Equestrian - Amanda Perkins .
Was an awesome experience and I was quite blown away by how my horses reacted.
They all did their own energy work on me, and I was amazed that they all nuzzled at my throat ( I have thyroid problems)
Jack rested his chin on my heart and just stood for a while ๐Ÿ’œ
They also spent alot of time on my feet, which is all about grounding. Telling me I need to ground myself more I think. I've been too much up in my head lately.
Horses are just great at bringing awareness to areas you need to be working on (physically and mentally)
When their job was done they went off to the hay roll, except my sweet little mare Emma. She was trying to get bum scratches but also had moments of quiet. She placed her chin in Amanda's hands when she was doing Reiki and closed her eyes and was so still ๐Ÿ’ž
I thank Amanda amd can't recommend her highly enough, and my beautiful herd for this unique experience ๐Ÿ™
Had an awesome Reiki and pendulum session today with Amanda and my herd. It was surely a different view of my horses with them standing over me. Beautiful whiskers ๐Ÿ˜Š
Amanda coped really well while 2 big Clydesdales stood over her, wanting to help her out. She also made sure Samson didn't know knock me off the table ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Had amazing reactions from the horses, as they did their thing (basically just being horses) They all released and Samson had a few big yawns, and 2 big pees!
Had a very precious moment where Jack put his chin gently on my heart and stood there for a while ๐Ÿค—
All 3 who were there nuzzled around my throat (I have thyroid problems) ๐Ÿ˜ฒ There were also very interested in my feet - telling me to ground myself more I think.
They finished their work and went off to the hay, except Emma, who stayed the whole time.
She wanted her bum scratched, but had a few quiet momemts where she stood next to Amanda. She even put her chin in Amanda's hands when she was doing Reiki on me.
A truly moving experience, Thank you Amanda and my amazing herd ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
Recently I was asked by a wonderful dog guardian and very well known and respected positive reinforcement trainer to

๐Ÿ’š offer an energy healing session
๐Ÿ’™ intuitively make a custom made set of gemstone beads for her beloved dog, Arnie.

Arnie has quite a traumatic history in his short life and his guardian is very open to helping him any way she can.

The photo below shows the end result, believe me as he chose what he wanted I was very worried about how I was going to put it all together to look pleasing to the eye!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Arnie chose the following gemstones

๐Ÿพ Amazonite - promotes confidence
๐Ÿพ Amythest - healing, spiritual connection/wisdom
๐Ÿพ Botswana agate - helps to centre, reduces sensitivity and helps to reduce habits
๐Ÿพ Sunstone - optimism, strength and playfulness

The beads are finished with a removable toggle to enable his caregiver to use them in any way she feels is appropriate.

For example, they can be placed near him, or on him in a long line, and then take the time it needs before he is comfortable to have them around his neck with the toggle on.

Here's a little snippet of what his guardian shared after

"When I was watching the video when you connected with him and started to use the pendulum for the chakras Arnie sought me out and wanted touch on his chest, throat, neck area and resting his chin on me. When you finished that section he walked away and is now asleep.

The stones he choose made me smile".

Did you see my video?? It's a long one...so grab a cuppa and get comfy!! โ˜•๏ธ

Any questions, or if you would like to book a session, send me a message, I'm always happy to help where I can

Have a Happy Day ๐Ÿ’œ
I absolutely love my custom made bracelet by Amanda, I intuitively picked these stones which are Mookaite jasper from Mooka Creek in the Kennedy Ranges WA. I just LOVE the colours. They are associated with the heart, solarplexus and base chakra's. These are so apt fro me right now ๐Ÿ™‚
The healing properties are nurturing๐Ÿ’œ, grounding๐Ÿ’œ and shielding๐Ÿ’œ.
The gemstones that I also intuitively picked are Tigers eye and Amethyst. Amanda gave me a couple clear quartz crystals for my birthday. Thank you Amanda you are awesome ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ
Perks of being a dog family, thereโ€™s always models willing to work for treats ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿพ

Fun fact, Alba here is my younger sisters kelpie. Her mother is my older sisters kelpie, who had a surprise pregnancy at 10 years old! Alba was the only puppy in the litter, and had to be delivered via C- Section. Talk about keeping it in the family.

Anyway, Alba got to test out a new product from The The Wholistic Equestrian - Amanda Perkins The WholistiSOAP bar ๐Ÿงผ๐Ÿ› is made with all natural products, so it is super gentle on sensitive skin. It smells divine too!
Yep!
I love the work Amanda at The Wholistic Equestrian - Tory Park Herbs does ๐Ÿ’œ always putting the horse first.

It's important to always remember that horses didn't ask us to put tack on them and "do" things with (to) them. Therefore it's our job to ensure they are seen for who they are and not what we get from them.

Following on from my earlier post this week for herbal blends to help support hoof care this spring, I thought I would reshare the wonderful vlog I did with guest speaker Nicky Higgs - Equine Podiatrist (and also Lucy's trimmer ๐Ÿ˜‰)

We chatted chat about โ€œEverything Hoovesโ€ including what a healthy hoof should look like, a range of common issues many horse owners experience and wholistic ways to address these.

As always, any questions, ask away ๐Ÿ’œ
Have a Happy Day ๐Ÿฆ„
Did you know that our blog page includes written articles AND vlogs with guest speakers? ๐Ÿคฉ

I know when I first started looking for more wholistic ways to care for my girl, I struggled to filter through all the information available.

That's why I'm trying to build up a resource of information in one place so it's easy for you to find what you're looking for when you need it.

There's a range of information on subjects such as herbs for hoof care, senior horses (especially as we head into winter) and addressing hormonal imbalances, whether that be conditions such as PPID or stereotypical mareish behaviours - I look at this area slightly different, preferring to think of and offer ways to care and nurture our mares, to be more understanding of their personal needs and respecting them for what their bodies are designed to do๐Ÿ˜‰

Our guest speakers vlogs consist of other wholistic practitioners who I've found offer wonderful options when it comes to caring for our horse's in a wholistic way. They include chats with Susan Tenney from Elemental Acupressure, Clare Frost from Equine breathing technique and my very own barefoot trimmer, Nicky Higgs.

I'm sure you'll find something of interest on there and there's plans for so many more blogs to be added, so keep your eye's peeled new editions ๐Ÿค“
Out along the trails today with our gorgeous Wholistibeads ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™
Thanks so very much for designing and creating our beautiful Wholistibeads. They suit both my horses and she sound is so lovely - peaceful, rhythmic, and calming!

Hi, I'm Amanda. Here at The Wholistic Equestrian, I help equine caregivers implement healing for their horses and themselves on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Heal your horse. Heal Yourself. Grow Together

Ever feel as if everyone around you is telling you what to do with your horse, how you should keep them, feed them, others opinions if you choose not to ride etc

Do you feel 'behind' others if you weren't fortunate enough to have your own horses until you became an adult?

Take a look at this months blog to help you stay true to you and your horse ๐Ÿ’œ

"Amanda,
I have to say โ€œWow!โ€, I found what you wrote pretty amazing".

After my distance healing sessions, I provide my findings in an email.
This was the opening sentence in the caregiver's reply to yesterday's session ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This was a deep one, with lots of bits to unpick and so much falling into place once I was told the history of the beautiful mare following her session.

LOVE THIS WORK so much ๐Ÿ’œ

Here's a photo of my set up for this mares session.
All crystals and tools are chosen intuitively, there's always a reason why when feedback and history of the horse is shared ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ’œ

Everyone Heals Differently

When we visualize healing from past traumas we typically think positively. Feeling better, connecting deeper, and living a happy and pain-free life.

This is the goal!

However, sometimes the initial healing response is anger or lashing out. This happens with humans and horses alike.

When we seek healing after years of being emotionally shut down sometimes we have to feel the effects our trauma has had on our lives before it can be released.

We must hold space for this to come out and honor whatever that looks like for the individual.

This months New Blog is ready to read ๐Ÿคฉ

Are you someone who always dreamed of having your own horse and finally made this dream happen as an adult?

I know that feeling well.

In this blog I chat about finding my mare and welcoming her into my life as an adult and how this turned out to be a luxury, rather than a set back ๐Ÿ’œ

I'm so excited to announce the return of Susan Tenney from Elemental Acupressure to share her knowledge of using the 5 elements when supporting our horses.

Have you joined our amazing FB group yet?
If not, you'll find the link below, join us on Saturday 9am Western Australia time.

The Wholistic Equestrian Community

Your horse is one of a kind. You love that quirky way she eats, plays, or expresses joy. That funny way she interacts with you or her pasture mates. That special nature is part of what you love about her.

So why would you use GENERAL solutions for your UNIQUE horse? Your horse deserves a customised approach that meets her special needs.

Customised approaches for
โ€ฆhealth care
โ€ฆtraining
โ€ฆstress reduction
โ€ฆsocial interaction
even connection to YOU

But how do you customise horse care? How do you identify your horseโ€™s unique needs โ€“ not the needs of others โ€“ and then make personalised choices to serve those needs?

Iโ€™ve asked Susan Tenney from Elemental Acupressure to come to share her approach to customised horse care taken from working with the Five Element Theory from Classical East Asian Medicine.

Susan has thirty years of experience using and teaching the Five Element Types to animals and animal lovers around the globe. During our meeting, Susan will reveal the five Types or patterns in your horseโ€™s unique health and temperament.

Then sheโ€™ll talk about how you can start using acupressure, training, and lifestyle choices tailored to the Five Types so that you can benefit your horse on a core level.

These approaches have the ability to radically improve an animalโ€™s well-being in all aspects of their life from behaviour and learning to performance and health care, all the way to your horseโ€™s style of connecting with you.

Donโ€™t miss it! You may never see the animals in your life in the same way again!

Is your horse a little bit run down? Maybe they have constant allergies or youโ€™ve noticed some weight loss and low energy lately.

WholistIMMUNE is a preventative blend that may support your horseโ€™s immune system. A horse with strong immunities is much less susceptible to the issues discussed above.

Support your equine by shopping this blend here: https://thewholisticequestrian.com.au/shop/general-health/wholistimmune/

NOTE* Herbs work alongside veterinary care and are never a replacement for it. If your horse is sick or injured call a veterinarian immediately.

Take the Wholistic Equestrians FREE Bach Flower Remedy assessment.

It will help you understand which remedies can release traumas and emotions stored in the body so you can enjoy the dream of building a positive relationship with your horse.

It comes with a fantastic meditation that can aid in your journey

Have a Happy Day ๐Ÿ’œ

If we ask our horses to be vulnerable in healing their traumas and opening their hearts to us, we must do the same.

The deeper your relationship with your horse becomes, and more intertwined your energy will be.

Stagnant or negative energy in either one of you will affect the other.

This is why we offer many modalities of healing for horses and humans.

Photos from The Wholistic Equestrian - Amanda Perkins's post 04/03/2022

This morning I received photos of the gorgeous Phantom in America wearing his custom made set of WholistiBEADS ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

How handsome does he look!!๐Ÿ’œ

04/02/2022

I love learning how to support our horses wholistically, that includes getting up at 3am in the morning to attend my acupressure certification live lectures๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

You know your students are going to be a gooooood group when they post this:
"This is my tired, but happy face after finishing another 3am - 5am live lecture for acupressure "
๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

That's right. With the time difference between Western Australia where student Amanda Perkins [ The Wholistic Equestrian - Amanda Perkins ] lives and where we are in Seattle, Amanda needs to attend at a grueling 3-5 AM. Of course she COULD watch the replay which we ALWAYS offer for our zoom calls.

But nooooo... week after week she has been attending live. When I expressed my admiration she went on to win over my heart ENTIRELY when she said:

" it speaks volumes for your teaching and course content.
For me it's a massive difference being in attendance rather than watching via replay, your energy is addictive."

So if you doubted the grit and determination of our students to bring their ALL to our courses, you only have to look here. Her clients in Western Australia are soooo lucky!

And yes, we are working on offering some meetings that are more in the 9 AM realm for Amanda and her countrywomen! Because we do NOT expect these amazing women from Australia and India to attend at these crazy hours. But we WILL cheer them on when they do!

04/01/2022

This beautiful custom made set of WholistiBEADS is on its way to America for a beautiful gelding.

This handsome chap chose the following beads through a distance energy session

๐Ÿ’™Amazonite โ€“ helps to promote confidence and heal trauma

๐Ÿ’œAmethyst โ€“ helps to relieve stress and strains, balances the body, dispels negative emotion, alleviates sadness/grief and increases spiritual awareness/wisdom . It is an amazing overall healing stone.

๐Ÿ–คSnowflake obsidian โ€“ great for grounding and balancing

๐Ÿ’šJasper โ€“ promotes happiness and joy

I noted his throat chakra is out of balance so added in blue acrylic beads and blue bells to support this as well.

His owner verified these findings which is always validating for the sessions I offer

"those are such perfect ones for him and in line with what I've experienced with him since he joined our family last year! He's such a sweet guy, but I've always had the feeling he had some rough experiences before us.."

I can't wait to see photos of him wearing them :)

If you're interested in a custom made set, send me a PM to get the ball rolling, I have new stock arriving very soon so perfect timing ;)

Have a Happy Day๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿฆ„
