1. My horses taught me how to ground myself and be present. Malachi and his herd became my community when I was unable to go out and be a part of the busy chaotic world.
Yet I had to return to the world eventually. But Malachi had taught me to plant my feet on Earth Mother, connect to my breath, and say, “I have not been given a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind.”
I learned to surrender to that which breathes life into me. I had to let my ego know that I was unafraid and trust that I would be guided to the answers, people, the opportunities that I was meant to experience.
2. I changed my thinking to being aligned with my horses’ way of thinking. I sought to find blessings rather than complaining, criticizing or condemning.
To listen more than speak. To sense in other’s their true Essence and loving connection.
When I would feel judgment or irritation rising at someone as I stood in line at the grocery store, I would envision them as they were as a wee babe.
All of us came into this world as a beautiful being of loving potential. Wouldn’t it be great if we could see each other in this light? To see their light?
Even the accident became a blessing to me.
I was on the right side of the soil and I gave thanks for that every day. I would journal every day what I was thankful for and why my day was going to be a blessing.
3. I aligned my heart with that of the horses. I would stand and meditate with Malachi, wee Scott, Brad and the others and envisioned my heart connected to their heart.
I would reconnect with the sacred breath, become one with the heart’s rhythm, and listen to that still small voice within.
It is the Essence that connects all of us.
It is that Essence, that still small voice, that creates the seeds of imagination, intuition, and insight.
It is that from which all answers, all love, and peace; peace that surpasses all understanding lay.
Until next time, reconnect with the sacred breath, the Essence, the higher consciousness, and the heart that aligns and shares love with all.
Those are truly the keys to StressLESS and Live Happy!
