I just received a note from a new client, DeeDee, whose horses Dottie & Sonny I had the pleasure of working with earlier this week. When we met, we sat under a shade tree and I Called in the Spirits and then we began our session. The work was a combination of Shamanic Healing + Energy Healing On-Hands Work + Masterson Method Integrated Equine Performance Body Work (this last part I am currently working towards my certification in). Here is DeeDee’s moving feedback, had to share it! Thanks DeeDee!
“Karen,The day of the session with my 18 year old POA mare, Dottie, was amazing. She is a ‘move about horse’. And she stood quietly for almost the whole time while you were with her. That was the first thing I noticed. Then, her willingness to have you work with her energy was amazing. Almost no objection. And the deep deep release and relaxation I saw happening put me in a similar state. Something from her belly released into your hand with sharp, prickly sensation. It must have been bothering her. Because even days later she seems so much ‘happier’ and willing to be with us. Instead of having to go get her halfway up in her pasture, she is coming at a trot right to the gate to meet us. And sticking her head into the offered halter. I don’t know what all transpired, but I can see a different set of results than before. Thank you.
The session you did with my 19 year old gelding, Sonny, even amazed my engineer husband. Sonny stood immediately (not so strange) but then he melted into your presence. I appreciated your comments about how well preserved he is for his age and how grounded and steady. He is that horse. I hope to have him and ride him into his thirties. You give me hope. I have been telling people we discovered Sonny has his own Spirit Guide, a big black/brown bear. (Hard to do with a straight face) As you were working with that energy Sonny transformed into that shaggy beast in some ways. His openness to the combination of energy and Mastersen work pleased me. He was so willing to move himself into positions of stretch and release. the way he surrendered to you, almost taking a nap in your arms as you worked on him, his soft, sleepy eyes showed so much trust. Since your visit, he has been more present, playful and MOVING. A big change. Thank you.
What was so interesting was Dottie’s reaction to your work with Sonny. When you first started working with Sonny, she was very close to him. They are very connected on any day, so I drew her away, to create a space for you and Sonny to connect. After a while when I let her find her own place, she slowly drifted back toward you two. And then she positioned herself just outside the circle of energy you were working in and went into a ‘trance’. She looked as if she was floating on the deep, calm energy you had created around Sonny. It seemed like she was continuing the releases that had begun in her own session. I don’t think she put herself in your way. Just rode the energy. And for a ‘walk about horse’ she stood quietly the whole time.
Thank you for your immense kindness to my horses in all you did. Your approach, your touch, your appreciation for them shone through in every moment and movement. You inspire me to let my love and joy be expressed in every moment and movement I am with them.”DeeDee L.
