The numbness of burnout disconnects us from our horse and makes it just about impossible to hear/feel them. No matter what face or mask we put over the top of it, overwhelm is even crappier – all the horse can feel from us is that chaos of conflicting emotions and explosive feelings. No wonder we make them nervous when we’re in a “state”.
There’s also degrees of numbness and conflicting feelings too. Hey – it’s not surprising… no one taught us how to deal with our feelings. I was taught “good girls don’t get angry” and “be brave” and I learned young, how to swallow my frustration. This all caused me enormous physical and emotional damage.
MY numbness and disconnection happened young, in an abusive childhood – but you can experience it at any time in your life.
I can’t tell you how many brilliant people I’ve dealt with in the healing or compassionate professions, who were either burned out or in overwhelm or even just thought they were plain going crazy and the only thing that was “wrong” with them was exactly the same sensitivity that makes them fabulous at their job AND brilliant with horses – once they understood how to use it as the calm and peaceful blessing that it really is.
Solving burn out and overwhelm is my specialty
One of my specialties is helping people understand and release what is causing the mental, emotional and physical symptoms of burnout and overwhelm. When people understand how to use their unique Feel for others – without exception in the people I’ve worked with so far – the burn out and overwhelm just disappears.
Yes it’s THAT simple.
People in the caring professions like alternative therapists of all types (even masseurs) nurses, doctors, councilors and social workers are particularly vulnerable. No matter how hard they try to not take their work home, every now and again a case, a client, or a patients gets underneath the defenses. The effect of these is cumulative, until burnout is the result.
Not only can you solve that burn-out quite quickly, we teach people how to use the beautiful empathy that makes you so good at your job – instead of being overwhelmed by it. It’s the same connection, the same empathy that you can use to be brilliant with horses too.
Solutions to burn out and overwhelm
So if this is you, relax, you’re in the right place. There’s a bunch of ways here on this website where you can address this issue:
If you’re a horse person, then Fast Track to Brilliant Riding comes with a free private session with me – so you get to do beautiful things to progress your horse to a willing, happy partner AND get a brilliant riding seat AND solve your burnout and overwhelm issues. If you choose this option, then have your session with me straight away, so we can get well on the way to clearing this up, then your horse can support you to keep you progressing until you understand your connection to others on auto pilot. You can check out Fast Track here.
I also run a reiki healing grid, where people can draw on reiki healing whenever they feel miserable or unwell. Whether you’re a student or not, that’s always a gift from me, so again, email me and just ask for it. I’ll explain how to get the benefit from it then.
