For over 20 years, I have asked a devoutly religious friend what she had given up for Lent. Generally, she usually gave up sweets and chocolate.
She has done this for as long as I've known her.
Recently, I asked her what this year's Lent "Giving-Up Promise" was?
Her reply was "This year, I didn't really 'give up' anything. Instead, I am trying to 'add' more prayer."
"Nice" I said, "Adding something positive rather than highlighting something negative that we can't have while removing something we desire."
After thinking a bit more on this, I asked myself how can we use positive attributes and intentions in our horsemanship journey?
We can start by looking for the positive things our horses offer rather than seeing and stating all the negative things we wish we could change with our horses.
We treat ourselves the same way, rarely stating the positive attributes but listing the negative ones.
Adding 'positive attributes' in intention and energy to our training sessions could be as simple as acknowledging every minuscule try with a 'thank you'.
Each new possibility and opportunity deserves our mutual understanding and conversational communication.
You'll be pleasantly surprised when you bring awareness and validation to the positives, how both your energetic vibrations strengthen.
Those vibrations enhance the positivity of the relationship and connection. Adding those 'positives' connects our communication on a deeper level.
Positive attributes are shared by successful people everywhere, but they don't happen by accident or luck. They originate in habits, built one day at a time.
Since energy and vibration resonate, the positives we carry attracts certain experiences and people into our lives, ultimately setting the tone for how we experience our horsemanship journey.
When we choose to pursue a goal, we're investing more than our time.
We are also creating and devoting energy to that new possibility and opportunity!
The vibrational energy required to do something we are proud of and positive about, is as finite as time itself.
In creating and pursuing possibilities, opportunities and goals during training, you could ask yourself these questions:
If I decide to do 'this' during training, what am I deciding NOT to do??
- How well can I keep doing 'this' during training, if I am constantly starting 'that'?
- What additional resources will I need to support my goals?
- Which of these training sessions are getting me closer to my goals?
It's not a possibility and opportunity if it isn't helping you get where you want to go with your horsemanship.
For me, it's impossible to offer my horses anything but autonomy, choice and voice. If I create good questions, and accept their mind and body answers and responses, our relationship strengthens and our partnership grows.
I can help you create the liberty relationship of your dreams.
