Yesterday, I had a very profound experience with one of my horses, connecting with this horse, Spock, has been a difficult one for me. He has demanded more from me then any other horse I have ever had the fortune to be involved with.
Spock is my 3rd grey Arabian. I don’t go looking for grey Arabians, they just seen to show up in my life whether I want them to or not ;) All of the animals that have come into my life have come for a reason, to teach me something. I haven’t always realised this at the time, but the more I open to my “awake dream” the more I understand why they came to be with me for a time.
At the beginning of 2018, Spock made it clear to me that I needed to spend time this year in connection, connection to myself and to nature. All that I have learned over the years, I did with the idea that it will be a benefit to my clients, I kinda took myself out of the equation.
I’m not a benefit to my clients if I’ve strayed out of my own dream.
One of the things the I have started doing is called “Earthing”, Earthing (Vitamin G, grounding) is connecting to the Earth’s electrical energy, this is a physical connection between the electrical frequency of the human body with that of the Earth's. Pachamama, Gaia, Mother Earth is a source of subtle energy that contributes to our health.
This is something I did naturally as a child, my mother could never figure out how I managed to roam around outside without any shoes on. As we grow older and start to conform to what society says we should do, we put our shoes on and we go to school and then to work and we lose that connection we naturally had as a child.
The other thing I have been doing is connecting to my own energy field. You may know it as the Auric field (Aura), in Shamanism it’s our Dream Body or Luminous Energy Field. This field contains a lot of information about us, not only the good but the traumas, our own and the ancestral ones that have attached to us.
Our mission, if we choose to accept it, is to heal what needs to be healed.
So back to the experience yesterday with Spock. I had been out in the field with the horses, Earthing and getting in touch with my Energy Field (this is a practise I have been doing a lot). I wasn’t trying to heal anything, I was just getting to know “me” better, looking for any chinks in my armour!
Because horses are so very sensitive to energy, and they can get a lot of information about us through our energetic field, and the electromagnetic field that our hearts generate, they know more about us then we often know about ourselves.
Spock didn’t care about whether or not I had healed anything, he just cared that I had taken the time to connect.
He doesn’t always like to be to close to people if there is a lot of inner turmoil or confusion. It’s difficult for him, so if you want to check him for injuries or even just bug bites, it’s uncomfortable for him.
Lately, he’s been allowing me to wipe him down with bug spray (without having to halter him), and believe me, that’s been virtually impossible before.
And yesterday, when I wanted to check him, and scratch him, not only did he allow me but he actually dropped his head and closed his eyes. Trust me, this is a huge step forward in our relationship!
This was truely the deepest and most profound Heart connection I have experienced.
The trust he expressed in that simple act made my heart soar!
How we show up in our lives stems from our hearts. It's smart, it's insightfull, and it's healing.
This is what Nature and the Horse teach us!
