Scale of 0-10 of thinking levels
7-10 is overthinking. fear, anxiety, worry
4-6 is ideal learning state. calm mind without overthinking, focus
0 is peaceful meditation
Focused presence. Reduce a state of thinking levels while holding a state of listening. =Mindful regard.
Peaceful feeling is being delivered at the pace of the animal.
Trust - individual feels regarded and understood. accepted, listened to, connected
1st principle Creative reaction -
Creative reaction - ability to reduce your own thinking levels and share it with the animal. helps the animal release
A mindful practice you share with your animal. reduces anxiety, deepens connection. help rehabilite animals. creates dreamline state like REM where healing happens. Practice this at home at quiet times.
reduce high thinking levels at the point of reaction (ex while dog reacting to stranger). Helps them learn confidence.
Perception is based on how we feel. Fear reaction, overthinking affects how animal behaves. Person responds with similar emotion (fear). Change the feeling to change the perception. This is realization learning, They can create new beliefs, self-learn. Stimulate self-learning. Animal may be reacting to our own overthinking/emotions. We put or feelings on them, which the react/bounce back to us. If you share focused presence you don't continue to add to the situation. The animal can self-learn.
Reduce overthinking levels at high reaction times. Deliver focused presence at the right time.
Can introduce touch after reaching the zero level.
Our own agenda/needs vs the animal's opinion. We put them first, see their reaction as high thinking levels, then in a position to help them.
Change the environment to change the behavior, which reduces overthinking levels. Non-reaction is a state of acceptance. Being dominant is the opposite of feeling trust. A still mind nurtures trust. Focused presence helps reduce thinking levels, which creates stillness. Release with ex) yawning, softening of eye. Can stimulate curiosity. Goal to keep thinking levels low. Peace does not contain fear. When an animal seeks your support they are no longer taking their own responsibility/over thinking/reacting. Perception is based on how you feel
Let go equation: acknowledgement + acceptance minus/reduce thinking
acceptance: change the environment
Connection is stronger than control. Dominant/control methods increase overthinking levels and fear/emotions.
Change from fear to inspiration
Decisions made with high thinking create more high thinking. (Don't email from place of anger.) How you feel when making a decision means you will bring back more of that feeling back to you.
3rd principle: Trusted cooperation
Perception is based on how we feel. Help animals see things where they self-learn = realization learning. Look beyond the problems, engage in deeper connection.
Establish cooperative spirit aka 3rd principle trusted cooperation.
Voluntary, asking & inviting. Mutual benefit, shared value. Frustration, dominance creates regression & fear.
Creative reaction - relationship
Realisation learning - animal has trust & confidence in you & surrounding. Reduces reactivity
Trusted cooperation - works with gratitude & intuitive connection
Gratitude builds cooperative spirit, use of invitation & reward. Animal are highly intelligent. We need to develop clarity of communication. Animal's opinion needs to come before our own agenda. Balance of clear communication, asking for action, acknowledge of achieve action, gratitude as reward. Invite is asking animal to engage. Reward is animal doing it, then receiving gratitude.
Reward: treats, comfort, play, connection
*watch the I have a dream video". A round pen is threatening to a nervous horse. Much a horse animal makes the animal give up. Animals are thinking-feeling beings, more sensitive than us. Fear motivation is not regarding their sensitivity. View how the animal is being treated in its education. What is the thinking level? If above 7, then in fear. Is the animals engagement voluntary? Is the animal benefiting.
Level 4-5 is listening state. Communcation is clear. Animal is clear on their participation. Animal understands what is being asked and has motivation to reply. Learning happens quickly with high retention. Break the task down into easy to learn pieces. Acknowledgement they have achieved task: "well done". Well timed and delivered reward. Food, scratch, pride. Then progress the learning. Food distraction can work, but is slow progression and not particuarly safe. No reason for understanding the reward.
Courage vs peace. Distraction is full of courage.
2nd step of trusted cooperation is intuitive connection. When 2 minds are peaceful they're in a listening state, and easy for each party to feel the feelings of the other as a communication. They don't understand the language/words "put your nose in the halter" but understand the feeling state you create. Feeling is our main source of communication. Not tone of voice of body language. We feel what we're going to say, feelings create the tone of voice and body language. Imagine what you're asking the animal to do.
The intuitive connection. Becoming sensitive to each others feelings. Communication is progression in shared feelings. Sensitivity in animals doesn't change, but can be transformed. Transform sensitivity to sensitive positive, so they are connected to your feelings and thoughts. They really know how to listen when sensitive. Trusted cooperation. Teaching vs training. Teaching trust and confidence which leads to a deep state of cooperation and connection.
Steps. Reduce thinking levels using focused presence. Learn how to communicate clearly what you require, how to time the focus presence and the reward relative to the action. How to work with invitation.
Essence of trusted cooperation.
Principle 1: creative reaction. Reduce thinking levels. to create trusting relationship. Can naturally tripper Principle 2: realization learning. Overcoming problems by having reduced which creates a change of perception. 1&2 can happen at the same time. Principle 3: trusted cooperation. Because working w/reduced thinking levels and rewards, animal will view your from different perception, which creates trust, reward & fun. We begin to read animals micro feelings into realm of animal communication. Cooperation opens up choice and opportunity.
Are there areas you need to override your animals opinion? There is always a kind and compassionate way to help them. This choice is trusted cooperation. Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. Put the animals opinion before our own agenda is a must to experience trusted communication.
