Do You Mean It?
Those are the first words I have written down from last weekend’s horse seminar with Koelle Simpson and Martha Beck in Scottsdale, Arizona:
“Do you mean it?”
Our first exercise was designed to reveal the energy we each flowed as reflected by the horses.
Koelle asked us to perform a “join up” after “sending out” the horse to do a couple laps around the pen. If we were tentative, the horse could tell and wouldn’t respond to our instruction.
Aggressive energy didn’t fly either.
We were each learning to find that energy stream of calm confidence in order to get the desired responses. Which also happens to work extremely well for manifesting anything we want.
Martha Beck says “how we do anything is how we do everything.” Because of that, we could analyze (and alter) our approach to horses and see how we were handicapping whatever else wasn’t happening in our lives.
Most of the participants were there to figure out how to get a boyfriend, heal their bodies, or grow their business. I was the only one who said she was there to study energy, but really – that’s what all of us were doing.
Through the work with the instructors -the horses – we learned how we might be scaring off men, or being desperate for clients, or ignoring messages from our bodies.
Koelle asked we be clear about what we want from the horse (i.e. set a strong intention). Then to drop any fear or doubt and to lead the horse energetically with a calm, confident expectation. All the while being aware of the interplay of energy and make adjustments as called for.
Tentativeness was a sure fire way to fail the exercise. (And trust me, it’s easy to “walk on eggshells” when you’re not used to being around those big, powerful animals!)
If we were tentative, the horses didn’t buy we were trustworthy leaders, and would either ran rampant or dilly-dally at their own will. Which led some participants to frustrated or angry energy. You might guess that didn’t help either.
(Is Cesar Millan’s work coming to mind for anyone else right now, too?)
Speaking of Whisperers, Koelle displayed an awareness of energy like no one I’ve ever met before – and not just with horses, but with people, too.
She reads energy like the Matrix movie characters do. It’s like she sees a code the rest of us don’t sense. Except she was teaching us to sense it as well, through the work with horses.
And this is exactly what we get to do every day in life. We don’t need horses to show us what we’re flowing energetically. When we learn to pay attention to the world around us, we see the clues and evidence revealing what our energy is and how it is (or isn’t) helping us achieve our dreams.
As we develop a stronger sensitivity and awareness to energy, and learn to manage it, there is literally nothing we can’t accomplish!
Which is a concept we’ll cover in my Abundance of Perfect Clients course starting next Wednesday. You’ll learn to discern the vibration you flow on the topic of clients, and how to shift it in order to allow the results you want – no matter how elusive they may seem now.
(The good news is this is the first course I’ve offered that can’t fill up! It’s open to everyone who wants in, so if you’re interested click here and follow the steps to join. Note: all VIP seats are filled.)
In the meantime, consider this post an invitation for you to look at things from the Universe’s perspective. In regards to the results you want, do you really mean it? Or are you kind of wishy-washy, doubtful, unfocused, fearful, or just plain frustrated?
A clear and assertive calm confidence will help you not just in working with a horse, but also your entire world. And that I mean.
