Our Universal Truth

Children of different nationalitiesSome may call me naïve and many have called me stubborn but I believe in the goodness of all human beings. Yes I have been hurt by many, used, lied to and hurt in many ways. But I have also been loved. I have been trusted, cared for and have received from many. Read More

Conscious decisions can change your ride

Baronetta 2 (640x589)Riding a horse is the same as living each day of our lives and every step is a decision making process from you whether you are conscious of it or not.

Every decision you continually make, conscious or unconscious, to either act or not to act, are determining the responses we get back from our horse and our life.

The Purpose of Our Animals

IMG00066-20100227-1719Why do we have animals so closely interwoven into our lives?
What are we learning from them?
What are they really trying to tell us?

Some of what you read in this article may be challenging for some. To understand these questions it will help to come to take the view that our lives are a complete mirror image reflecting back to us in detail, showing us to ourselves.
To understand this we need to remember that all of our individual lives – seen from our own perspectives no matter how many people, places, things or events that they consist of, are always a reflection of us.

The transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, merely a symbol of what each of us become through the growth challenges of life. Catherine Louise Birmingham

The horse first teachers us to be the leader of them to help us become the leader of our mind. To focus the mind, to create, not to be the victim of our thoughts, feelings and actions.

They are the doorway that they carry us through to change our state of awareness.

Wolfgang Kutting, a brilliant rider that has a profound connection to horses in the art of Dressage, describes this unity of a teacher with a horse in a beautiful way. In a translation ‘Horse and Trainer see as one’. Both horse and trainer tune together as one to work in enlightening the rider.

Mirror Theory

Mirror Theory

Article by Catherine Louise Birmingham

thank you crystalAfter Masaru Emoto’s discoveries of the effect of thought on water, it is now known just how powerful our thinking is and how connected we are to the horses being while riding.

The concept of ‘the horse is a mirror image of the rider’, is the horses way of showing us just how much effect our thoughts have over our life and over the situations we have at each moment. Because there is more than one reason for our current thoughts – mind, body and spirit, history and experiences/influences of this life and others or current state of awareness, the mirroring of what is, is only one aspect and stage of awareness that horses are assisting us in moving into and moving through.

Understanding Fear

Part One

Article by Catherine Louise Birmingham

Landetta June 2015Picture yourself standing in front of a solid brick wall, now push against it as hard as you can. Now imagine every morning when you wake up start pushing against this wall, keep pushing until the end of the day and return to bed. The next morning wake up again and start pushing against this wall all day then sleep again at night. Everyday wake up and spend the day pushing this wall. How long do you think you could do this for?

Do you think you would get tired? Maybe your body might get fatigued or stressed? Would you be happy? Would you become angry or frustrated? Would you feel helpless and sad?
