I don't know about you, but the last three months have felt like a pretty scary roller coaster ride. I had some understanding that all the craziness was part of a larger plan and that I was going to be okay but, nevertheless, there were several instances when I felt deeply threatened by it.
Those instances, let me be honest, were self-induced. I chose to become part of the drama or the story (because that's really all it is - and one of countless many), and I realize now that I did this because I was ready to release some more soul clutter - that energetic smog that prevents us from shining our light brightly into the world. And now more than ever, the world needs each of us to shine our lights with more intensity and laser-like focus because when we do this, we restore integrity to the energetic fabric that connects all life.
Today is the first day that I feel like I've finally turned the corner. I feel grounded and ready for action. It's also the first day of my pre-launch campaign for a project that I started last summer. I'll share what it is in my next post, I promise (and I do keep my promises), but suffice it to say that it is the product of nearly seven years of intense self-work and self-care that has resulted in uncovering one of my gifts (and I am so excited about it!).
By the way, I choose the images for my posts deliberately and for this post I chose an image of Secretariat. About one year ago, I really connected with his story and horse medicine in general, and I thought it would be fitting to share this wisdom with you now. According to Ted Andrews, "Horse medicine brings with it new journeys. It teaches you how to ride into new directions to awaken and discover your own freedom and power." Maggie Harrsen, a curandera hierbatera, says that horse medicine brings "true power that can only come from wisdom that is found in remembering your total journey. A 'power animal,' Horse is a message carrier and concerns itself with traversing gateways. It is also associated with the power and responsibility that comes from exercising authority and the wisdom required to use it in a balanced, compassionate way."
Horses are also great empaths and, for me, this is one of their most endearing qualities!
Until next time, love to all,
