It always amazes me how the answers to questions arise not when you ask for them but when they are supposed to arrive!

Two days ago I went for breakfast and two people were there that I had never seen before.

For a month or two I had been hearing people talk about miniature horses and I was questioning what they were used for. As I sat at breakfast these two people introduced themselves and we got into a conversation about how they had moved here from a big city and how they now enjoyed a wonderful quiet life on the prairies raising their miniature horses. One of their horses is 29″ high. We talked and talked about what they do with them, how they become pets, and how some people even have them living in their houses. What a wonderful conversation and learning when it was least expected.

How often do these meant to be moments occur for you?

Peace, love, light and blessings

Many years ago I had the opportunity to go on a trail ride through the mountains on a wonderful horse named Dolly. In my life, I had built up an unbelievable fear of horses, and I was very apprehensive about going across very narrow mountain passes on a horse. My fear of horses stemmed from visiting farms and riding stables where I was placed on the back of horses that I did not know. The horses reciprocated by being as freaked out as I was that someone would actually place me, a city raised greenhorn with no knowledge of horses on their back. I went on many hair raising rides, with the horse taking total control and desperately wanting this unknowing greenhorn off of them right now. I was dragged through bushes, run through fields, and totally unaccepted by these animals in their need to get back to a place where they were comfortable and happy. Back to their stables! So, actually, apprehensive is a mild word for what I was feeling at the moment I was to mount a horse and take an 18 mile ride across the mountain trail to spend four wondrous days in a remote bush camp in the mountains. I was totally paralyzed with fear!
The owner was a very experienced cowboy. We he realized the dilemma he had on his hands, he said, “I have one horse who is really gentle, her name is Dolly and she will get you there and back with no trouble at all”! ”She understands your fear and won’t let anything happen to you on the way”! He left, headed for the stable and brought back a huge horse which really left me quaking in my newly acquired boots. My 5’2” body could not see over the back of this horse, and he expected me to get on her and ride on steep mountain trails. Another fear quickly arose when I saw her. The fear of heights, how on earth would I get on her, sit way up there while I was on a narrow mountain path? At that time my whole physical body became paralyzed. My legs locked, my arms stiffened and I realized that there was absolutely no way that I was going to attempt such a ridiculous challenge. The trail boss knew what he was doing! Everyone else had mounted their horses, and I could feel the anticipation and excitement in the air. How could I possibly back out of this? I was in he middle of nowhere, everyone else was ready to go, I had no means to get back to town, and my only choice seemed to be to get on the horse and take the trip. I became very creative and decided the way around this fear would be to just walk and I would lead the horse. Dolly and I would be fine, I would load my few personal items onto the saddle, and she and I would enjoy our leisurely walk through the mountains. The trail boss, realized what as going on, and I attempted to manipulate him by saying, “don’t worry, we’ll be just fine”! At that time he reminded me of the bears, cougars and other wild animals that also lived on the mountain, and said that it was a long 18 mile walk, and if I chose to do this he would see me in two days. Well, he was another fear to add to my fear of horses and heights. Now it was bears and cougars! It was amazing how quickly I actually mounted Dolly, and began the trek through the mountains.

Once I got onto Dolly there was no way that I was going to get off. The mountain pass was really narrow and there was shale falling down the mountain as we progressed along the pass. Dolly was sure footed, and she seemed to know that my life and future depended on her every moment, every step along the path. Other riders had dismounted and were leading their horses across the ledges, not me! I was now totally frozen on the back of Dolly, my fear of horses, heights, bears and cougars totally intact and radiating from every pore in my body. Two or three hours later, we stopped by a mountain stream to have lunch. I attempted to get off of Dolly’s back and found that my legs were locked and two able bodied men offered me some assistance to get me down to the ground. The whole time, Dolly was patient, kind, and understanding. She looked at me and her eyes told me that she understood how I was feeling and wanted to reassure me that she knew what she was doing and would continue to take care of me until we reached our destination and that’s exactly what she did. Without my animal friend Dolly I never would have got into the camp.

Two days later, I went on a day ride with Dolly. I was feeling a lot more comfortable with her, and I decided it might be fun to head out into the woods with my kind and compassionate equine friend. We were hiking along a mountain stream, the air was fresh and alive, the scenery was totally awesome, and I was leading Dolly. We had to cross through a patch of entangled trees, and Dolly got stuck in a tangle of tree roots that resembled an X and O Game. She panicked, jumped out of them to free herself and her hoof landed on my left heel. I hollered, cried, removed my boot to make sure nothing was broken an then I looked over at Dolly. She was looking at me and the look and sense of compassion radiating from her was immense. In that instant I knew what compassion was all about. Dolly had taught me. She and I were joined through spirit! She put her head down, nudged me as if to say, I’m so sorry, get up on my back and I will take care of you again. I did, and she did not falter for the remainder of the trip with the compassion she radiated to me. We made it through the remainder of the trip, she walked me back down the mountain and she and I were totally connected spiritually through compassion and experience.

I realize today that Dolly was a great teacher, only because she was different from me. I could sense what she sensed, feel what she felt, and take direction from her because her realness, clarity and compassion were not clouded with my negative thoughts. She was genuine, unique and wonderful!

It amazes me today how experiences come into our lives to guide us. It is no accident we end up in situations to prepare us to move forward. Since my experience with Dolly I have been able to assist two very dear friends (horse whisperers) to set up programs to teach Life Skills through horses and help many to learn and grow with these four legged friends. We are all one!

In memory of my dear friend and mentor Dave! Blessings and Thank you!

This has been placed on our blog before, but as I awoke this morning, the  message  for me was that our Earth, and everyone inhabiting Mother Earth at this time needs to understand compassion from the core of their being in order to radiate it out to all that we encounter on our journey through this life!

The Channel says:

Compassion is the core of all humanity, for without compassion the world will face dilemmas of unbelievable proportions. At this time in your history you are observing what the lack of compassion can and will do for a society. This lack of compassion that exists in your world today comes from deep-rooted fears. You have been brain trained to look for the fear, few today are looking for the good in all, you become more concerned with who needs to be fixed, changed and what it is that needs to be brought forth so that they can be just like someone else. With compassion there is no fear! Humans have lost sight of all that is good within themselves, and it is through understanding how this came to be that they could undo what has been done and start to be who they are. Many today believe they are compassionate but they tend to be looking for what their compassion will get for them. Whether it is a job which will provide them with money in order to survive, a place in society, manipulation to get information which they need to have to harm others through control or whether it be just to say that they have compassion for others in order to be accepted into the outside world.

When true compassion exists there is never a question about it. Each human being was born with the capacity to have true compassion for all that is a part of creation and mother earth. It is about honoring the journey of others through life, by first honoring your own journey through life. Looking at another human being and being able to feel what they feel, sense what they sense and truly understand what they need to have understood, not from a personally biased point of view, but from their own unique place of learning will put it all back together. It is in innocence that compassion is born. As a small child you are compassionate and this compassion every parent has seen in the eyes of their newborn child. Some misread the compassion the child feels for its parent and surroundings as helplessness, however, these wonderful new beings, are exactly that. They come into the world innocent, pure and full of compassion for all that is around them. They learn very quickly to replace the compassion with helplessness because that is what it is that they are taught. The love and special feelings flowing between a parent and a child can be observed, however, there has been guidance given to the human being, which reinforces the helplessness predominant in the world today. Have you seen a child look into the eyes of their parent who is having difficulty, and observed the pureness of spirit and love, that flows outward from the child to the parent? Have you observed what happens when the child does this and the parent is unwilling or unable to see this compassion because they are so crowded by thought existing outside of themselves? What is it that the child learns from this message, which is being given to them? Compassion is not to be! I have made a mistake! In order to be accepted I must not have this compassion, it is wrong, unhealthy and not to be shared! They will hold that compassion on the inside, until it is eventually pushed so far down inside of themselves that it becomes something foreign, unwanted, and something which is not to be acknowledged. It becomes danger territory because compassion given and not understood, can be hurtful and can create responses which were not supposed to be. You can learn much from the innocents who come into the world, they are not helpless, they are pure, understand life in it’s simplest form, and are unconditionally compassionate and care for all who are around them. They simply have learned no different than what they know. We have progressed to a point in life where we have forgotten and misplaced this natural sense, which was our gift to the earth, and replaced it with all of the outside values, which came to us through misunderstood brain training. It is now time to retrieve this wonderful and soft sense, which is still alive in all of you when you allow it to be. The means to accomplish having compassion alive in our lives today, is simply to acknowledge that it exists and give of it freely and in return it will come back to you. As you change, compassion will once again be the most important sense that will bring the earth back to the focus, which it was meant to be. The earth is here to support you, to provide for you and to nourish all that is needed for your life as a human being in this world today. You only know what it is that you know. It is this that will provide for us at this time, because each human being has knowing that has been pushed outside of them, it is retrievable. Respect you, uncover your compassion, and you will change and become who it is that you are, not being what someone else wants you to be. Compassion and Blessings to us all!
