When you throw out all the stuff about being a good leader, pressure and release, training through various forms of manipulation (making your idea the horse’s idea) and you really truly LISTEN TO YOUR HORSE…
When your only goal is that of a deep, vibrant, intimate relationship with your horse…it’s profoundly amazing what transpires.
When you treat horses this way, you unlock a vast field of intelligence, that maybe you’ve never seen horses display before, because it hasn’t been honored or welcomed – there’s been no space created for that intelligence to emerge.
It’s an opening to the core of your being, it’s an exploration and celebration of the best parts of being alive; it’s a spiritual journey. Come join us...Jini Patel Thompson, Kesia Nagata & Güliz Ünlü at ListenToYourHorse.com
Meditation Journey with The Herd – for Anxiety, Loneliness or Fear
Join me (Jini Patel Thompson) and the Singing Horse Herd as we take you on a guided journey to release anxiety, fear or loneliness from your body & mind. Followed by gentle music and being with the herd and dogs out in nature. You may also like to use this before bed to ease into sleep.
If you prefer, here is the podcast audio-only version of this meditation:
I co-created this guided meditation with the herd at the request of my son, Hugo, who landed in the UK on April 23rd and went straight into lockdown quarantine at the soccer (football) school he's attending for the next two months. He was in a 12x8' room with only enough floor space for a yoga mat, in solitary confinement for 7 days! Meals were dropped off outside the door. He was only allowed to leave the room to shower or use the toilet. His isolation was worse than an incarcerated criminal, because at least they're allowed to go outside once a day and they leave their jail cell for meals.
What governments are doing in the name of 'covid' makes me a tad crazy sometimes. How many children are dealing with split custody with their parents living apart? So they have to go into solitary jail cells just to see their parents? Madness! We negotiated hard and by Day 3 they allowed him outside (alone) for 20 minutes twice per day.
On the flip side, I've been discussing with Hugo why he chose this experience... He could have quarantined with Dad for 10 days and then attended the school. But he was adamant that he just wanted to 'get going' with his destiny/passion (at that time, they told him school quarantine would only be 5 days).
Why has he voluntarily chosen this difficult trial that could make even adults lose their mind? I don't know when he'll have the answers to that question, perhaps it won't be for a few months or even a year, but this meditation, along with this other one (also with the herd), Lazer Tapping sessions, and a Zoom session with the herd have all combined to help him stay sane, avoid deep trauma and mature in a positive way. Life hey? The challenges never cease.
Hopefully this video can go out into the YouTube universe and help many more people struggling with pressure, stress and isolation. And if you have kids or teenagers, definitely share it with them. They are all struggling, even though they may appear to be fine.
Horse Wisdom: Non-Verbal Observation & Acknowledgment
Guliz Unlu recently did a week of Private Sessions for people with the Singing Horse Herd... now join us for this live zoom call where we discuss the messages or themes that emerged from those private sessions.
We also chat about the most recent videos with Ben and Aude - one of the people on the call had a powerful experience as a result of that!
As well, I share some stories about things the horses have taught me. Join us however you wish; video or audio...

There was a wonderful comment on YouTube in response to this video, that I'd also like to share here:
"Hi Jini and Guliz, there's a wonderful book called The Eagle and the Condor by Jonette Crowley where she shares the spiritual journies that unfolded for her. There is a prophecy about the path of the Eagle (the mind/masculine/science and technology) that is trying to find a balance with the path of the Condor (heart/feminine/intuition/spiritual connection/protecting land and culture). Jini and Guliz, just like you, Jonette is guided to certain locations and is given specific words to say or energetic/physical impulses that are like keys that unlock a new dimension. Areas of the land may hold trauma or new encodements that are now ready to be released. Being fully PRESENT and able to LISTEN (with your ears, heart, body, intuition which you teach) is key to receiving the intuitive impulses.
I also find a correlation with your horses to aspects of this book. Montaro is a golden colour/strong male leader (the golden Eagle) whilst Kaliah is like the black Condor that represents personal power (and also a reference to Goddess Kali). The dualist aspects of what needs to be destroyed to make way for what is to come. Yet the prophecy also mentions that the union of the two would produce a new offspring = higher consciousness. Although Montaro and Kaliah were not a mated pair, Montaro and Audelina (Heart/feminine) produced Juno. Juno has a central blaze of white and White denotes balance. Everything is a sign. I remember you mentioning how playful/goofy Jax (white horse) is yet he also has the balance of being very quick to learn. The dappled grey horse looks like a cosmos of stars - so beautiful. They all are.
Logically I dont know why I need to bring this next bit of info up but I trust it is important for one of you or your viewers to read.
In some channelled info that came through Jonette, Ashtatara says:
"All the guardians of the Earth and all the golden code keepers wait until you knock on the golden gates and say: “I have the key!”
Simply by claiming “I have the key!”, even if you don’t know where it is, even if you don’t know how it works, the doors are opened.
The twelve solar discs that were planted before the time of Lemuria, are awakening now. They are vibrating so intensely. It has never happened before. The twelve become one."
I am intuiting that your herd, yourselves and those in spirit who guide you are weaving together something more important than any of us currently realize.
When people in fear ask psychics "Where do I move to so that I can be safe?" they dont realize that what they really need is their own INNER FREQUENCY to be one of calmness/centredness/connection to Source energy and then, in each and every moment, the guidance about what to do NOW will come. One person holding this Centered state can energetically hold hundreds of loved ones safe in their field of awareness. Just listen and act on this.
Jax Moonlight Has An Announcement - LTYH Podcast
Jax wants to become Kesia's horse, but there are protocols that must be followed.
LTYH Podcast: Montaro & the Momma Bear
Join Kesia and I for an evening of storytelling. When Juno pops open the fence and hops out onto the driveway - yet no one else follows him - the horses are sending a clear message to Kesia. One that involves llamas, a raging river through a canyon, and an encounter with a mama black bear and her two cubs...
LTYH Podcast: Ways to Meditate with your Horse & Why you Should
In this podcast episode, I am being interviewed by Megan Brincks from Chrome Magazine. You may have seen this wonderful article she wrote - I posted it on Instagram and Facebook when it came out:
Article on Meditation in Chrome magazine
When Megan first requested to interview me for the magazine, I suggested we record it as I knew she was going to ask me some good questions! I also knew it was going to be interesting because Chrome is the official magazine of the American Paint Horse Association. As you will hear during our interview, Chrome readers all ride their horses - and compete in shows, events, etc.
You may wonder what on earth the average Chrome reader would have in common with LTYH? I have to admit, when Kesia and I first started this blog back in 2013 I don't think we ever could have predicted something like meditating with your horses would go mainstream! And I was curious as to how much I could actually speak to, or assist, this audience. How could I meet them where they were at and give them solid tools to move forward? Or reasons to enter this very different space with their horse?
The article was a 4-page spread in Chrome magazine
Well, obviously the larger horse world is very ready to consider this aspect of relationship with equines because Chrome magazine gave Megan's article a 4-page spread - which is some serious real estate in a printed magazine with a circulation of 55,000 members!
I hope you enjoy our conversation and perhaps take away something new to try with your own horse(s).
LTYH Podcast: The 3 Lads Head North!
Following on from last week's blog post, Horses, Big Changes & Chess, we had so many questions come in on all social media channels, I decided to do a podcast together with Güliz and Kesia to explain all the details behind WHY I made this decision, how we chose which horses would go, and why send them to Kesia's farm?
You can watch the video of the podcast, set to pictures of the herd and their new adventure, below. Three hours into the editing of this video I was seriously asking myself WHY I ever attempted to put pics/video footage together with a Podcast!!?
But by the time I finished, I realized that having the stories/concepts illustrated with pictures and videos helped ME to process this big shift - to piece together all the elements that led up to this momentous action.
Those of you who've been Horse Listeners for a long time will recognize the threads and stories referenced in the footage - hopefully it will pull it all together for you too in a deeper way:
You can also download/listen to the audio via the below player, or on iTunes.
Are there any big shifts/changes going on in your life right now? Who else has entered the Great Spiral of Grouse?
