Give yourself time to BE....with a Horse
How do horses inspire humans to experience joy and love and discover their vision? Horses are intention teachers and all visions begin with our own unique intention of the heart. A horse's intention lesson is one of those experiences that sticks.
A Happy Horse* lives in the present Moment of Now, which is where peace and love exist and intention is inspired. You can see the peace in a horse standing under a shady tree, you can feel it in the gentleness of their eye and the soft nuzzle on your heart. A Happy Horse can share unconditional love, the moment he first meets you. It can be astonishing to feel their pure genuine kindness and desire to connect. And when you intentionally open your heart to receive this gift, it can be life changing. By simply BEing present in the moment with them, the healing energy of horse elevates your own vibration. It can feel like magic, because it's truly that easy! Through the authentic, energetic connection with horse, we humans elevate and balance. Sound out there... or not?
Humans, unlike Happy Horses, are often in the vibration energy of worry and fear about what's already happened and what might happen next. Connecting with a healing horse, who chooses you, activates awareness; empowerment; confidence and growth! Horse, our powerful intention teachers, also helps us focus our attention to our intention, activating inspired action to move forward in our Joy Visions.
You horse owner/lovers know what I am talking about. Horses are your 'happy place'! 'Cause as soon as you head to the pasture you start to feel calmer in your authentic self, knowing your about to BE with the horse of your heart who loves you like no other. If you want to take those good vibes a big step further, intentionally Ask to Receive Love of a Horse and feel a transformation within.
