Founder and Executive Director of Medicine Horse Ranch, Alyssa Aubrey, elaborates on the purpose and importance of setting clear boundaries for safety and mutual respect and discusses how working with horses helps deepen the understanding.
TOMALES, CA – April 15, 2019 – Alyssa Aubrey, Founder of Medicine Horse Ranch and co-author of the best-selling book, The Road To Success, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “Setting Boundaries Makes Good Horse Sense,” in which Ms. Aubrey establishes the unspoken yet integral need for clear boundaries.
According to Aubrey, “Boundaries exist to establish safety and trust. When clear and consistent boundaries are in place those with whom we engage feel safe enough to engage in interaction that is mutually beneficial.” She continues, emphasizing, “Without clear boundaries we can experience enmeshment with others which eventually will cause us to abruptly break the bonds with have with the other for fear of suffocating.”
“The energy work we do with horses,” says Aubrey, “reinforce our own boundaries and energy fields. Setting a boundary says that I respect myself and I will protect myself from inappropriate behavior.” It also states as Aubrey points out that, “I will not allow emotional, physical, spiritual or intellectual abuse or manipulation to define or control my personal space, values and reality.”
