Waiting for my foal has made me wonder if there is some life altering lesson I need to learn about relaxing before he/she will come. My other two horses have been trying to tell me for a while I need to spend more time being relaxed in my life.
Sitting on the mounting block with my head snuggled up to the belly of the extremely pregnant mare, I quietly started to think about what it means to slow down and just be. I tried to release the stress and pressure I put on myself and find that place called relaxed.
Something has to give, and it would be nice if that wasn't parts of my body.
I find my horses are a wonderful gauge of how well I'm progressing in my journey to learning how to let go of tension. Pan doesn't particularly enjoy being touched, if I'm not getting it right, and Tonka doesn't want to be with me if I'm to stressed. I've decided to listen to their advice, and really work on letting a steady stream of calm energy into my life.
