GUEST ARTICLE



A Herd of Two: Is Your Higher-Self Leading You?

Horse therapy

In recent years many people are becoming aware of and starting to work with horses in areas such as relationship, communication, leadership, responsibility, empathy and awareness, along with spiritual growth and expansion. But why work with horses, what is so unique and special about them?

In the relationship with a horse, there must always be a leader. Horses are either being a leader or following one. In the wild, the leader is responsible for the health and well-being of the entire herd. As a prey animal, a horse’s survival is dependent on the choices their lead horse makes about when to eat, rest, flee or fight.

Therapeutic horseback riding

When we bring horses into our world, they continue to look for that leadership from us. In this way, you and the horse become a Herd of Two, ideally with you as the leader guiding them through their choices in whatever environment and discipline you engage.

Like the Herd of Two created between a human and a horse, there is also an internal Herd of Two created within each of us: between our “ego-self” and our “Higher-self.” Our “ego-self” is that part of us that constantly looks for danger, focuses on “me,” resists change and growth, and is based on self-preservation.

Our “Higher-self” is that part of ourselves that is always connected to both our source of spiritual knowledge and everything around us. It is the truth of who we are and speaks to us through an inner voice, our intuition, and through occurrences in our daily lives.

Equine Therapy

Our ego-self serves an important purpose, similar to a sentry in a castle staying alert to potential danger. However, while it is sometimes correct, our ego is often based in fear and not always accurate in its observations and judgments.

It is important for the sentry to alert the Captain (our Higher-self) to potential dangers, but it is far more empowering when our Higher-self considers the ego’s input, and then makes decisions based on the whole picture, utilizing one’s prior experience and knowledge.

It is critical that our Higher-self be our internal leader making the choices in our lives. In this way, we create an “embodied” decision-making process by aligning our choices with both our head (thoughts) and our heart (feelings and intuition), which then manifest concretely in our physical world.

Horse therapy

Developing embodied decisions is critical to making harmonious choices. Through working with the horse as guide and teacher, we receive immediate and honest feedback about any incongruity between our inner and outer messages. Taking a horse through specific tasks teaches us what we are truly communicating and how our actions either support or defeat our goals.

Creating emotional and physical alignment through relaxation, breathing, and present moment focus leads to awareness, learning, and creativity. This awareness allows us to manifest the people, places, and circumstances we desire in every aspect of life.

Working with the horse’s non-verbal expression, we begin to understand that true leadership is less about what we say and more about what we do and how we do it. We develop our ability to fully trust our own decisions and to lead through example by creating a clear connection to our leader within.

As with the horse, we create an atmosphere of trust in which we are able to influence others, not because we hold a position of power over them, but because they trust us to lead them. As we learn to trust our own internal leadership, we cultivate the keys to empower those around us.

By choosing to accept the challenge of looking honestly at ourselves through the mirror of the horse, we are able to grow and evolve in ways we never expected…changing our lives forever.

Blessings, Brianna Lorenz-Marrow



Briana Lorenz-Marrow

Briana has been riding since the age of 12 and brings a strong foundation of horsemanship philosophy to her teaching. She believes that part of the gift of the horse is to facilitate openness and learning that otherwise could not take place. Briana’s life work has always been focused on service to others, empowering them to manifest their own higher purpose.
