What the Horse Taught Me About Deliberate Creation


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?

Our lives are horses…in a way…waiting for us to lead them…to imagine something beautiful, satisfying and wonderful to co-create with us?  Getting dead clear is step one.  What is it that would be fantastical?  Spend a few minutes *seeing* that thing in your minds eye and then…let go and see what happens:)  Try it with something small to just play with it.   Have you ever experienced clarity of vision and near instant manifestation?  Tell us about it in a comment?  Or the converse-  a clouded vision and a stalled out situation:)?!
Love to you all!  ~Sarah
