I check in with the horses before I must leave for work. I am anxious to visit Grace, a lovely mare that experienced an enormous shift through Anna’s communication session. She is indeed a different horse. Ears forward welcoming and interested in my hello, I stroke her serene face. I can feel her satisfaction of having been heard. We as a group listened and as we commit to honoring her requests, her world is forever changed.
On the highway the traffic is rushing through the mountain pass. It’s a familiar commute for many of us. But today it “feels” different. I can sense I am still connected. I remain in the slower lane and enjoy the immense beauty around me. As we slow in pockets around curves it is a better opportunity for me to really enjoy the foliage. I have been driving this highway for fifty years and this experience is my first.
My thoughts run to Anna’s words “This is where horses live. They are present.” The weekend workshop opened the door to the knowledge, understanding and experiences available to all of us. Beyond the tremendous benefit of holding the capability of helping and bettering an animal’s life, it presents the way to change our own. This feeling of being connected to all is a leap forward toward inner peace and I know I don’t ever want to go back.
