Horses, Harmony And Productivity
Have you ever heard anyone say, “The air is so tense you could cut it with a knife”? I often hear this when I work with corporate teams. One of the reasons corporate teams often come to engage in Equine Guided Education is that there is tension among the group that no other kind of training has been able to pinpoint, let alone diminish.
This kind of tension in a workplace can be disruptive and lead to non-productive behavior. Working with horses is a very large, visual aid that will identify reasons for the tension and dissipate it right before your eyes.
Consciousness As Blessing And Roadblock
We humans are blessed with consciousness and the ability to reason. Unfortunately, this very blessing is also our greatest roadblock to successful relationships in every aspect of our lives. We get into our heads and forget that we reside in a vibrating sea of energy comprised of thoughts and emotions.
Like electricity, as well as radio and television transmissions, which we cannot see, invisible thoughts and emotions make up the very air that we breathe. And when that air is filled with unkind thoughts, resentments, fear, dislike and other negative emotions, the air can get thick enough and tense enough to cut. That produces a non-harmonic, non-productive environment.
Horses Move Away From Tension And Incongruent Emotions
Horses are herd animals. They have successfully navigated through the ages by effectively sensing the subtlest energetic changes in their environment. Horses don’t have the ability to reason the way we humans do. They rely on their senses and they instantly sense changes in the environment whether it is a predator or merely the behavior of a human that is inconsistent with what that human is feeling. If horses are out of harmony, there’s a darn good reason for it.
Unlike humans, horses have no agenda. They have no ability to mask their feelings the way we do. Nor do they have any reason to do so. You can trust what the horse reflects and make changes until the authenticity of your actions aligns with your feelings.
Horses Can Guide Your Team Back To Harmonious Productivity
Participating in an equine-guided learning program is an excellent way to discover how incongruous emotions may be disturbing your team’s harmony and productivity. Equine Guided Education works in several ways.
First of all, many people are intimidated by the size and power of a horse. So, accomplishing a task with a horse in spite of fear does wonders to build confidence and self-esteem. This newly bolstered sense carries over into the work place helping team members remember how their authenticity made the horse cooperative. Authenticity has a way of making everyone more willing to work together.
Additionally, horses have the ability to mirror exactly what the human body language is telling them, which quickens self-awareness leading to powerful insight and change.
No one enjoys working in an environment thick with confusion and tension.
