As I progress in the studies of Mastering Alchemy (5th year at the time of writing this article) I would like to share with you the concept of the 7 Layers of Thought by Jim Self - Founder of Mastering Alchemy which I believe are very insightful to our connection and being with our horses.

First, I would like to share Jim Self's teaching about the 7 Layers of Thoughts. Then I would like to share with you what I have experienced using this "7 Layers of Thoughts" with my horses. 

What are the 7 Layers of Thought as taught by Jim Self - Mastering Alchemy and how do they relate to our connection to horses?

Please note: There are no distinct layers, there is no line between 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 etc, it is much more like looking at the colours of the rainbow, you look and you really can't define where red turns into orange and so forth, it is kind of an overlap. To help the brain understand we put them into 1, 2, 3 and so forth.

One of the most important aspects of being able to shift between the layers is noticing where you are. And then it is as simple as making a decision to step into another vibration. Without knowing where you are, you don't know where to step into next.
