I am an energetic practitioner for animals and I teach classes in animal communication and energy healing. Here is a story about Drago the Stallion. We brought our students to a stable where we were given permission to work on several horses. Dividing the students among the horses, I was observing one group who were not having any success connecting to the horse.
Their efforts to connect with him to ask permission resulted in his turning away from them and ignoring them. I thought what a perfect opportunity to show how EFT can also be a tool for communicating and healing.
I began to tap on myself as a surrogate for Drago, saying:
Even though no one takes time to understand me and what I am feeling, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
After the second time saying that phrase, Drago whipped his head around and began nodding yes. I continued to tap and communicate what it was the students wanted to offer him to heal his emotional wounds.
Even though I don't know these people and I am afraid of strangers, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though they say they want to help me, and I am afraid, I choose to trust them.
Even though I feel these emotions that are so foreign to me, I choose to be open to these humans. I choose to trust...
Then I used words of trust, love, respect, honor on all the end points, tapping on myself.
After three minutes or so of tapping, he then stepped forward and began accepting the students' Reiki energy. He then proceeded to let the students stroke him. The barn staff was amazed as he was known as the wild crazy one, who had almost bit off the stablehand's finger.
The owner was so impressed with the results, she asked if the students would continue working on him. I taught the students to tap for him while employing Reiki energy. For those familiar with Reiki, they would visualize the symbols entering the areas where they tapped.
After four sessions, the horse was a different animal. We also instructed the staff not to call him names, because that hurt his feelings, and he felt he would live up to all the nasty names he was called. So we tapped that if anyone called him a nasty name, he would look at them and then ignore them for he now knew his self-worth.
We communicated to the horse through EFT, tapping while sending our thoughts and mental images to him. We let him know that, whenever he felt agitated, he might imagine someone tapping on him. We sent him our intention that when he began to feel uneasy, he was to remember us tapping and know that the anxiety would ease up.
Today he is a beautiful stallion that is magnificent in the ring.
