Horse Teaches Man how to Change his Energy – A Personal Story

Kenneth Berentzen is a friend of mine from Norway, currently doing a kind of work/stay exploration of Canada. He’s come out to visit with my horses (and help with some of the vigorous work!) a few times. I noticed the boys (Jax, Juno & Montaro) particularly enjoy him and will often seek him out. But I had no idea Ken was putting together a video about his experiences!

I think it’s a beautiful story – Ken’s open, vulnerable, honest experience is a great illustration of HOW you can use your energy to change a relationship dynamic, or your experience of a person (or situation), or someone’s negative response to you:

As Above, So Below energy/ki technique

I taught Ken this same As Above, So Below technique that my horse Montaro taught me: you bring energy in the top of your head from the Divine, and bring energy up from the earth and swirl them together in your center. Open your heart – front and back – and send out OM, or Love. That’s it. Very simple, but oh so powerful!

And yes, it does take a bit of practice to be able to do all these different things together. So you may want to start with just one piece at a time. Until you can flow them all together, simultaneously.

    Thanks for sharing the story Jini ๐Ÿ™‚ Itยดs so nice to know it can be that simple, the challenge is just remembering to do it in our daily life when we are triggered.

      Exactly! And even sometimes I remember, but I just don’t have the bandwidth or emotional resources/strength to manage my energy the way I know I should. So in those cases, I’m just honest about that, I own my shit, and forgive myself!

    Superb video by Kenneth Berentzen! Really defined and clarified for me the absolute importance of consciously choosing the energy, the feeling, I give to any situation

    What an authentic profound video. Such a soul touching description of harmony and approach to life. Horses affect us so deeply. His discovery with the horses is why so many of us are horse junkies. I think this was even more inspiring hearing this from someone who came to horses with an indifferent mindset about them and even some fear. The world could be a better place if everyone had discovery with a horse. Thanks for a fantastic videoโœŒ๐Ÿผ๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿด

      Yes, exactly! I think the video is so much more powerful because he knew nothing about horses and didn’t particularly like them! Until meeting and spending time with them. Just one of the reasons I love it when non-horse people visit the herd!

    So beautiful! Thanks Jini and Kenneth for bringing such a heartfelt, thought provoking, sincere experience with your beautiful horses.

    I have had this same realisation within my herd. I struggle though with the program that I was brought up to believe (it took some time for me to fall asleep to my own strong internal desire to just be without needing to do with my horses) that every horse must earn it’s keep. If I own a horse I must be doing something with it in order to prove it was worth the money to purchase or breed it and look after it. My truth is really fighting to come out now – and finally I am honouring that just because I don’t ride them very often, our relationship is still worth every financial expense. Indeed I in deep internal learning spiritually and emotionally and my horses lead the way. I feel it is imperative to move with this. Just like Kenneth said, they are here to teach us to move and act from a space of love – I really resonated with everything in this video. I really appreciate your blogs and videos because it helps me to not feel so alone with what I am thinking and feeling with my own horses.

    Thank you for taking the time to consistently share!

      You’re very welcome Tamara and I hear you! I too cycle through those feelings every now and again. For me, it usually signals that I (and/or the horses) are bored. I’m spared the ‘beating myself up over not riding’ thing because most of mine are too young to ride. But I still get the ‘need to justify the expense’ thing every so often. I have noticed though, that my horses don’t want to just sit out in a field. If we think about it, horses are naturally nomads – ranging, encountering challenges, endless variety of forage (25-30 plant species per day) and they are super curious and playful. So even though we’re not riding, mine LOVE going for hikes. Even just up and down the road (cause that’s all I can manage that day) changes their day and enlivens them. Likewise, they love it when people like Ken come to visit! That too is enlivening for them. As is meditating together, me singing as they eat, or just sharing scratches. It’s all good ๐Ÿ™‚

    This reminded me of when I visited you and your lovely herd, J – and you and M remarked on my barrier dysfunction (i.e. the lack of fear response when having a horse invade my space). Listening to Kenneth, it makes complete sense why one would have their guard up – why that isn’t innate with me with horses (but definitely is with people) is a thing of pondering. I think a large part of it is what I felt from the horses – I felt no malice or nervousness, so I was feeding off that curious trust. Love Kenneth’s introspection – and the part of how the world indeed is a mirror to what you offer it.

      Yes! I was so delighted and intrigued to watch you with the horses and how they skimmed within a hair’s breadth of your face/nose but never once knocked or hurt you. And that’s the best descriptor: “curious trust” you were perfect mirrors for each other in that, and it was a privilege to behold ๐Ÿ™‚
