Don't Take Our Words! Hear What They Say About Us.
I knew almost immediately Mojo was who I’d work with, when I saw him in the paddock that day, the way he was looking at me and chewing, focused, grounded. I wound up making a major business decision I’ve been struggling with for months. Through a series of questions I was asked, I found my true feelings while being honest with myself. When being truly authentic, Mojo reacted positively, and by me knowing what I wanted, he knew what he wanted too, I felt connected and could feel his energy. With this weight lifted, I’ve been able to stay true to myself and this decision, moving forward with the tasks at hand.
Working with the horses has helped me be stronger in listening to my intuition, being confident in myself, and not focusing on what others will think. Even though I didn’t specifically work on forgiveness, I did learn something about the way I’d been feeling about it, something to work on in another session.
If you’re struggling with anything, take it to the horses, they know, and they’ll truly help guide you, teach you. Marlene and Maureen are wonderfully professional and welcoming, without judgment, and their facility is clean and accommodating."
In my last session with Dusty, I didn’t really get her to go along with me for very long. I would say this was very illustrative that when there are a lot of distractions for others, I get distracted too and don’t concentrate. I end up all over the place and not being the leader I need to be for myself and my family (possibly).
The easiest thing to do when faced with distractions is to fall into old patterns (get into looking after everyone else, lose sight of my goals and/or lose sight of my needs) because that is what I did when Dusty was bothered by the wind and rain – I patted her and did all sorts of unnecessary stuff which was not about leadership or taking care of business or keeping focus.
So, inasmuch as the weather conditions and Dusty’s bothered state were challenges, they were actually a BONUS to reveal my Achilles’ tendon.
I am now acutely aware of shifts in my thinking and how I approach things. I am not so hard on myself (and others!). I find it easier and easier to stay out of others’ business and having good, healthy boundaries. I find it easier to have a nice time; to relax; to ask and get what I want; be clear, trust my instincts. It’s a lighter feeling I have like I’ve just come back from the gym! I feel calmer and sleep better. I feel like I can get whatever I want out of life more than ever before. YAY!!!
If there is one thing (and of course there are MANY lessons learned) that is SO important is how to have compassion for one’s self in times of turbulence. Realizing patterns that emerge when conditions change or when conditions prove challenging in the face of getting what you want from life/staying true to your core – this experience I had is likely universally felt. I am so very grateful for the experiences I’ve had with you both and the horses. Thank you for engaging my courage, intuition and integrity, and allowing my authentic self to emerge."
