Healing with Horses – Earth Medicine

Horses-on-6C2-Pasture

I received my second session of energy work with medicine horses Saturday morning, July 19th.  What came up for me was how symbolic self care is. I began to notice how much I needed to attend to myself this past year, and these lovely horses assisted moving this part of my journey further. As adults we need nurturing too and that is okay. Anyway, attending to my own needs is what the medicine horses have shown me in this visit. I feel the necessity in sharing this powerful information with everyone because what we do for ourselves does ripple to the people around us.

The first thing I ever experienced in healing with horses was the opening of my heart. That came to me in a dream. Something I had not experienced until earlier this year and it was as valid as being with them in person. After the release I had from this, the shift in my outer life can attest to the major changes that are occurring in my inner world! I feel freer from old conditioning patterns that were blocking me from experiencing really great things. Like doing art. I am amazed at how much creativity that is flowing through me now. Hence how there is an accumulation of knowledge around the subject of love, learning more on love has made my metaphorical library require more space for all of the growth to fit together. If there was anything I could encourage in this type of medicine work, is to face your deepest fears to the best of your ability. Because what we tuck away inside us is by far our greatest beauty in life. The work we do shows in the most beautiful ways possible. We just don’t know what we are capable of until we venture through!

Each session is inevitably different. Medicine horses have several identified and unidentified ways to move energy in the human body. You may find that a horse will nuzzle your head, your heart, or, releasing for you through their own bodily resources, such as peeing or pooping, yawning, or by working on each other.  What happens is they pick up the energy of who ever is near them and they clear imbalanced energy so as to bring you back in your body’s center. Sometimes to the naked eye, you can’t even tell they are working on you. So there is no predicting how the session is going to play itself out. Medicine horse’s presence are gentle, loving and compassionate. Another message that came through that surprisingly and not so surprisingly had something to do with family.

I feel blessed that family got mentioned in this session. I had not expected this to re-surface because sadly, I had gotten used to not having one after experiencing many instances of loss. But now I can see that I am accepting my soul family. In the feeling of it all, the definition and people involved is ongoing. Essentially, I’ve learned in Saturday’s horse therapy session, that when you are taking care of yourself you are contributing to your soul family Too. Now back to love!

Each of us has love to share, and it originates in us from our family of origins. One thing that stands out to me, our souls remember how to love, it is our human experience to learn and make that journey to self awareness and break down our barriers in life. It is evident to me now that love is a delicate subject. Pending on your experiences, and the type of learning you are meant to do, the way a person love’s will vary for each of you. I personally think love goes deep in our body’s because individually, love touches us close to our souls and so we can be initially scared. It’s as though we have this programming to be scared in love and go through the many initiation experiences to shed the layers to find our true authentic being. I have had significant learning around breaking down my own barriers to loving and will continue to learn. The learning around love has helped educate me to listen very closely for truth as that voice is often quieter than the ego who can sometimes override the sound of your inner truth.

self-care= spiritual awakening= true self-love. So it’s all connected.
I am proud to know how far I’ve come. Not just for myself but for my ancestors who I couldn’t be here without

Eagles Soaring

This post is from yesterday and because I lost the website to my original blog set up, I wanted to re write this one.

I had a really trying day yesterday because I have been care giving my Father who is now a senior and suffers with mental illness-schizophrenia (Root issue is unresolved trauma). So unfortunately, his mental capacity to cope is sometimes not really strong. Bless his spirit as I mention this. Hes still such a strong man to have come this far in life even though there’s tragedy in his life. For this I acknowledge deeply. To keep this short, I prayed after a conflict him and I had while he’s been living with me (In my small apartment). I prayed so much and cleansed my body and spirit with sage. This time, I asked for a lot of things like “please show me you’re with me today, and in ways that I will listen” and I left it alone once I asked for this. Soon after, I was walking down the street trying to carry on with my day even though heavy things are happening from left right and center. What do I see?  A flock of flying birds high up in the air. At first glance, I thought they were just seagulls, but then noticed how high they were. So I kept on walking and looking up. In my heart and spirit I knew that they were eagles. But my head kept on wanting to make sure.. sure enough they followed me down the street, I still wasn’t sure because I thought I may have been making this up in my head. So I go around the corner to make my way to the bus stop, and sure enough again they were still flying above me! Now, in my culture this is a very powerful message. I knew my ancestors were with me instantly now, so I gave my thanks in a quiet humble tone aloud, then they all quickly dispersed. Before they all disappeared, I counted them and there were eight of them. The same number that showed themselves for a week straight, one per day except second to the last day there was two of them, this happened before I left to go home in Shishalh territory two years ago! in addition, I am leaving in just days away to live in Shishalh once more. True Story.

How beautiful hey
