Episode 190: Doing less of a ‘bad thing’ won’t work.

Do you have a thought, that you are not aware of, that is holding you back?
While this might seem like an impossible question to answer- it’s not.
It is however a higher level idea that will require you to do some work.
In this podcast, I share a story to illustrate how a hidden thought showed up for one young lady and how we uncovered it. Then I explain how this could be showing up in your work with your horse and the signs to look for. Finally, I share a very specific exercise you can do the next time you are at the barn to help uncover your hidden thoughts.

    I could not have needed to hear this more. I just adopted a retired racehorse and I find myself questioning everything, especially when it comes to advice from more experienced people at my barn. They are very supportive and wonderful, however sometimes I need time to process as I’m not a very quick thinker. Last week I decided I need to start listening and trusting my own instincts instead of always doing what others tell me to do and it’s already made a world of difference in my mindset. Balance is key, and the guilt I feel about not being sure I’m making the correct decision for my horses helps nothing and hearing that this gets transferred to my horses is a major lightbulb moment. Next time at the barn I will be saying “yes, I believe in this” every step of the way. Thank you for opening my world with horses, your words really make a difference.
