GOING WITH THE HORSE VS. GOING ON THE HORSE

Recently, one of my students Laurel Melick contacted me to share the following thoughts:  

“I loved it when you said that you put yourself in the same vulnerable places we put our horses in. That shows incredible insight and I have so much appreciation for that because I have met very few people where I am who views anything from the horse’s perspective. During the past year, I stopped leading my horses to the mounting block. Since I always start at liberty, I will go stand on the mounting block. If my horses come over, we ride. If they don’t come over, we don’t ride. It is as simple as that.”
— Laurel Melick

Upon reading these words, I swelled with joy.  I have seen my client's posts on Facebook which show her riding and jumping bit-less and playing hide and go seek (video left)  with her horse.  Her horse clearly loves her as much as she loves him.  It is adorable to watch their Centaur Connection and relationship that I have written about spring forth.  This young woman allows her horse to be her teacher,  validating her feelings and giving full expression to her inner voice.  Although she may feel alone in her way of thinking, a long and fruitful future awaits this shining star! 

One of my most pivotal life lessons arose from the guidance of a horse who told me that as long as I sought answers from the outside, I would not be able to hear my own inner knowing.  It is so true that sometimes we simply don't quiet ourselves to heed the wisdom within.

Joyously, we are now entering the season of light!  It is your time to shine as you boldly step forward in full expression of your own inner beauty.  Your horse is always ready to cultivate the "diamond in the rough" that he sees in you!  Are you ready as well?
