Emergency colic surgery. That phrase is enough to strike fear in the hearts of the most experienced equestrian. We can feel so helpless and the situation so far out of our control. The reality, though, is that is only partly true. There is a lot we can do to influence any surgical outcome in a positive way, whether it is a simple dental extraction or a double level anterior interbody cervical fusion. Because everything is energy, we can learn to use the tools of energy healing to support and benefit our horse before, during and after a surgical procedure.
First and foremost, space clearing is essential. Research has shown that people heal faster in an energetically clean environment. But the fact of the matter is that we don’t need research to know that positive, clear, optimistic environments are more conducive to healing. Most hospital settings, unfortunately, are full of diseased energy, negative thoughts, negative emotions, medical pessimism; and since the current medical paradigm does not acknowledge subtle energy as a factor in healing, the operating room is thick with this stuff. People who are sensitive to energy can actually feel this. When we learn how to clear a space, when we clear the operating room before and during the surgery, our horse gets a giant head start in the “success” category, even before the first incision.
Second, it is important to understand the effect anesthesia has the energetic body. The effect is significant and a primary factor in how long it takes in post-op for the horse to recover. When the energy anatomy is so far out of balance in so many aspects, the physical body’s ability to heal itself, to recover from the actual surgery, is dramatically slowed down. On the other hand, when the horse’s energy is strong and balanced coming out of surgery, his recovery is accelerated to the point where clients have reported their horse being up and around, eating and relieving within an hour after surgery. All systems “go.”
Finally, post-surgical follow up is crucial. Many horses are on stall rest for months after a surgery. This is stressful and depressing. Pranic Healing can help with the emotional stress of the recovery process, before the accumulated stress begins to contribute to another issue.
