Horses have been a great ally of human kind, serving humanity in various functions, including travel, minimizing the distances between people and societies. In this way horses have helped humanity to a more expansive understanding of the world around us and the multiplicity of life.
For Sigmund Freud, horses represent passion and the sexual drive. I think there is so much more to it. I think horses symbolize the life drive or life force energy itself. Have you ever experienced a dream of galloping on a horse? I remember a few dreams like that, but I also had the privilege of going on some outrides in forests in the mountains. The feeling of exhilaration, joy and aliveness is incredible. Over the ages many poets have likened riding horses to flying, with good reason..
Numerous legends speak of the clairvoyance of horses. They have an ability to sense what is going on in the morphic fields by picking up on the vibratory patterns or through resonance. Morphic fields underlie our mental activity, perceptions, nervous system and physical organization of all biological life forms. In a very interesting summary on morphic fields and resonance, Rupert Sheldrake explains that ‘the fields of our minds extend far beyond our brains’ (2), making it possible for horses (and other animals) to tune into our mental activity. According to Sheldrake morphic fields are self-organizing patterns of vibratory or rhythmic activity that are not static, but evolve, and contain a cumulative memory through self-resonance. This sounds like a complex kind of self-fulfilling prophecy, doesn’t it? So, we really need to actively learn to think outside our own box in order to transform our lives.
