Wisdom inspired from the herd


It was overcast here for the Full Moon/lunar eclipse! Although I didn’t see it, I was fully aware it was there.

I woke up with the calling from sage and my oracle cards wanting to be part of my morning.

I have been feeling overwhelmed with thoughts, planning, doing, and I have allowed very little time to centre and align with ME lately. I do have a lot of responsibility here and I find myself the anchor and leader just like a lead mare.

I picked a card from “Sacred Earth Oracle” card deck and ”discernment” came up as I was shuffling. Making the right choices that support my highest good and the one for all. Allowing time for discernment otherwise I may find myself missing out on the beauty and joy of living which is all around me but I am slipping into being too busy to appreciate it all fully. Letting the chaos of the external world bring unease and doubt.

In trying to be everywhere at the same time and leaving “ME” behind, ignoring the messages I receive, I feel, I will loose ME. I know I won’t let that happen but getting close to that sense of loss creates frustration among other negative feelings in me and it isn’t how I want to live. Feeling like I have no freedom !

I went to see the herd last night and I felt Miss Daisy different from usual.

As I posted a few days ago in my blog entitled “A leader in the making” Miss Daisy has found herself having to step into a leadership role for the herd. That is a big task to take on … keeping the herd safe.

She was away from the herd with her rear-end towards them when I joined her.

I asked her how she was feeling? I got a sense of tightness in my chest: anxiety. She shared she was tired and that she needed some healing, attention and to not be responsible for a while. She wishes she didn’t have to be the lead mare that it was a huge role to own. She also said that nothing is the same, even her relationship with Neptune, her 3 year old foal, has changed.

I was surprised about this message because I am used to them bringing wisdom and comfort to us humans and she was the one needing comforting.

So I stayed with her and scratched her bum and she pressed herself against me. I stayed there for a while and she was quiet. We were quiet together.

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and it may be hard to see how we can overcome this feeling?


Only did I make the connection to me this morning as I was journaling.

Just as she was taking a break and making a choice to keep her space, I too need to make the choice to do so and not forget about me, my needs so I can be clear on choices, decisions that honour me and support the energetic frequency I want to vibrate at and the environment I live in.

I need to heal, regenerate, free myself and I achieve this by finding myself. What does that mean?

Making a choice to allow me time, not in keeping my mind busy but really going in to the silent connection away from entertainment, distractions, busyness. Going to nature. As my card suggested: “to breathe in the Divine Mother’s deep love for this world.

Only when we go back to ourselves do we find healing.

There is so much going on out there that it can be overwhelming and discouraging leaving us feeling helpless, fearful of the future and where we are heading?

Recognizing what we are doing or not doing is key. Making a choice from there is how we shift. Making that decision from a place of alignment to our authentic self is where the truth is.

As the full moon/lunar eclipse was bringing us to awareness we need to choose higher thinking, greater vision and deeper love. In doing so we shift into flow and ease.

Going deep inside without effort not seeing it all but knowing all the answers are within. Just like the overcast skies last night wasn’t giving me sight of the full moon, I knew it was there. Some saw it others didn’t.

How have you been lately? In full manifestation or in the cloudy skies?

Go within… you may not see the answers yet but they will become clear. Choose discernment.

A young lady came for her first session today. With every new client, I go over the safety portion around horses, their ways of communicating, and the goal of this first session … to feel a connection with one or more horse. This young woman had never been in proximity to horses and was feeling a bit anxious not knowing what to expect. I assured her I was going to be with her at all time. I answered her questions and then we smudged.

When we walked in the field, Neptune walked up to us. I recall me saying to myself: “ Ok! So much for starting easy. Neptune is the kind of horse that is up close and personal. He’s in our bubble and doesn’t give much space. Neptune being Neptune didn’t disappoint. I asked how she was feeling and she said it was awkward. I asked to clarify and she said she felt invaded.

I communicated to Neptune to give us space and he moved. I asked her if this was something she has experienced or is experiencing? She said it was.

As she was sharing details, Jasper came towards us as Neptune was checking in if I meant for him to give us space and Jasper moved him away!

She was telling me that usually when she is invaded someone comes to breakup the situation. She said to me I do my stuff and don’t respond and eventually they leave me alone! She added that she felt challenged mostly when with a group of people.

As she was sharing some details we both observed the herd and when I asked her what was going through her mind she answered that she observed the herd trying to get leftovers in one tub while the other tub had more; she couldn’t understand why they were doing that?

I received a message for her: “You are a leader and this gives you insight on life others don’t see. You are not a crowd follower you never will be. You walk your own path based on abilities others don’t have.”

I explained that this was like one horse eating there attracted more to come because they “hang out”. They are followers. Then Duke came straight to us. Duke‘s, a Clydesdale, medicine is being empowered and knowing we are bigger than how we see ourselves. I translated his medicine and this young woman GOT IT. Duke came to confirm that she was bigger than what she believed herself to be.

She said she felt it…. She said this is exactly what I am currently working on.

Et voilà!!!

We are ready for our next session!

Thank you to my magical wise herd for feeling her energy and bringing about the scenario for her to learn from.

A woman and I were in the field yesterday with the herd and Neptune came to see us.

Whenever someone is challenged with saying no, setting healthy boundaries or someone who needs to focus on establishing win-win situations Neptune shows up.

The woman liked Neptune but at one point she felt he was too imposing and in her bubble; she felt he was invading her space.

I asked her to communicate with him by intention - energetic exchange - what she wanted of him. She said to me she didn’t want him so close to her and I said tell him that.

She put her hand out and said “NO“ but she backed up saying that and he moved forward. I advised her that she was sending him mixed message. In one part she wanted to have him stay away but then was not standing her ground. I said try again and she did. She stood still and said “NO”.

I asked how does it feel to say no? She answered that it felt good and it seemed to give results as Neptune didn’t move forward - just yet.

Like anything we do that is a change, we sometimes get challenged just to test us if we are consistent. Consequently, as we were discussing Neptune came near her and she didn’t respond. She did not reinforce her need to have space. He touched her arm with his nose and pinched her skin with his teeth to which she reacted and said NO but she meant it that time.

He backed up, she had a greater space more importantly, she made him move. Not the other-way around.

I asked her if she had challenges saying NO to people? Asked if she felt her space was invaded? She answered:”OMG yes”.

In setting healthy boundaries, we need to do so with a clear intent to support our needs and not give into people around taking over our space, us, our life,

If we wait, if we do not set limits, if we are not consistent we will get hurt. We need to set boundaries to keep ourselves safe and the message needs to be clear that there will be limits EVERY time someone challenges our needs and it is not negotiable. If we don’t we end up with emotional pain, stress, and it can lead to physical illnesses after a lifetime of this.

Enforcing our limits gives us our power back, it protects our self- esteem, it encourages healthy relationships and promotes self respect.

Setting healthy boundaries is saying YES to ourselves!

Do you find yourself feeling like you are not valued, heard, that your needs aren’t met, or validated?

Most likely it is caused because you have not sethealthy boundaries.

Let’s explore this and identify how you can empower yourself!
