Let’s kick off this week’s post with a gift! It’s been well over a decade since I’ve had any digestive sensitivity whatsoever – and 29 years since I’ve been 100% drug and surgery-free. This is the place I speak from when I say that to have fantastic, vibrant, long-term health, we simply must heal the emotional and spiritual aspects of our dis-ease.

I’ve spent the last year hard at work on the 3rd Edition of Listen To Your Gut where I’m really bringing out this aspect of healing, along with going deeper and deeper into the spiritual aspects of wellness with my herd of 11 magical horse beings. I recently published a couple of blog posts on my horse site – named, what else, Listen To Your Horse! – that I also want to share with you here.

But before we get to that, please download this free EFT Tapping session – we sell this in the Shoppe, but I wanted to gift this to you now as it ties in with my posts below from Listen To Your Horse.

In this teleseminar tapping session, Annabel Fisher and I tap on the acupressure points and clear some aspects of the harmful thoughts and behaviour patterns involved in chronic illness, such as:

● How to say “No”, to keep ourselves from doing or taking on too much

● Banishing the guilt that keeps us from resting or taking things easy

● Letting go of perfectionism and achievement-driven behaviour; again, these cause tension and prevent us from getting the rest we need

● Letting go of “people pleasing” desires and behaviour – these push us beyond our limits and result in stress and exhaustion

● How to respect your own needs and seek balance in your life

● Dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one

● Dealing with the fear and stress produced by disease flare-ups

Enter your name and email and we’ll shoot you the audio, transcript and tapping manual for this powerful mind/body healing session:







Now that you’ve got a practical way to action the concepts I’m going to talk about next… Let’s get started with Part 1 of this 2-part series called: Meltdown At The Barn: Dancing with Victim

I wouldn’t be surprised if every single person with a chronic illness feels victimized by the limitations of their poor health. I was no exception, but for me, the Victim archetype went much deeper than that and suffused almost every aspect of my life. I was aware of it, I hated it, but I couldn’t shift it! In the two posts below, I’m going to share with you how the horses led me into awareness and transformation of this pesky root of chronic dis-ease:

Part 1

Kaliah and me

“I had a full-blown, snot-dripping, throat-aching meltdown at the barn. I was hissing with anger, stomping my feet and swiping the air with my fists, as I punctuated my tirade.

The horses stood where they were when I began my blowout, with lowered heads and soft eyes. A few ambled off as I raged on, while Aude and Kaliah moved closer to me. Kaliah had been following me around for an hour already, standing near me and gazing at me for long periods.

I was so angry at myself for collapsing into Victim whenever things got challenging:

I’m so overwhelmed
Why do these things always happen to me?
Why don’t I have help?
Why is it, no matter who I hire, or what I do, I never have enough support?
I can’t take this anymore
I can’t handle this… READ MORE…

Note: Feel free to leave a week or so between these two posts to give yourself time to process.


Part 2

Baby Xadaa during her choking episode

“In my last post on the topic of working with victim energy and the victim archetype, I told you how sore and painful my throat became as I vented and cried with the herd. Not just a sore throat type of thing, but a really painful, squeezing, deep tissue ache kind of pain.

But that wasn’t the only ‘throat issue’ that had happened recently: The week previously, our cat Rupert had surgery to remove a piece of speargrass that had entered through his throat and worked its way down his chest to the thoracic inlet (1/4″ away from entering his lung!). Three days later, my filly Xadaa choked on her feed (alfalfa pellets, vitamins and dried herbs) – Güliz and I spent an hour and a half with her, helping her through it using a combination of Bowen method, massage, BodyTalk and pranic healing. To cap it all off, I had then come down with a weird throat bug that didn’t hurt, but I almost lost my voice.

I was discussing my meltdown at the barn and this bizarre sequence of throat issues with my friend Jenny Andrews and she said, “Would you like to do a session on that – we could start with your throat and see where it leads?” … READ MORE…

I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback on this process, or your own experiences.
