I just returned from the San Luis Obispo area where Martha Beck, my mentor and colleague has moved her ranch. I got certified as a Master Coach after a 9 month training. I didn’t crave the certification so much as I loved learning new stuff and being pushed to my edges- to see what more I was capable of- in my writing, coaching and as a human. One of the most powerful lessons I got was from a horse:).
Horses are incredibly sensitive to our energy- telepathic you might say.
When I went in the ring with this horse and a clear picture in my mind’s eye of what I wanted to create (a spiral pattern we would calmly walk together…in case you were curious) – the manifestation of that dream was nearly i n s t a n t a n e o u s……as I spoke the words out loud– he moved to do exactly what I’d dreamed. And the converse was also true…when when I had the opportunity to create something new- I sort of got clouded and confused with so many options. Once I was in that mind state (ack! confusion..opposite of clarity)…the horse left me and headed for the fence to wait for me to get clear again. What a perfect metaphor for my life?
