Horses are said to be able to read/sense humans’ feelings and emotions, which they mirror back to clients. This process can be helpful in therapy and learning. This abridged poem speaks of a divine mirror.
A mirror receives and reflects back what it sees
It does not judge, adjust, or write commentary,
We are the ones to do that.
A mirror simply reveals.
And invites responsibility.
When we learn to love anyone or anything,
It is because they have somehow, if just for a moment
Mirrored us truthfully yet compassionately to ourselves.
Richard Rohr (Abridged)
