I often hear Jane talking to people in sounds that I don’t understand. I may not be clear on the distinctions of her human words, but I can hear and feel the meaning behind them.
She has suggested that people eliminate the word “not” from their vocabulary because there’s no picture in the mind for the word “Not”. None of us can picture “not”! Since I process the world in mental pictures, the word “not” creates mind pictures that are just the opposite of what the person really wants.
Saying, “Don’t shy.” tells me there’s danger ahead, and I SHOULD shy to keep us safe.
Jane speaks to me in positive words, whose meaning creates the picture in her mind and my mind of what she DOES want. That, I can understand!
How do you speak to your horse, and to yourself? Train yourself to always speak and think in what you DO want, not in words describing what you don’t want.
Let’s go riding!
