Day 15 Guided Meditation Practice

This meditation is a repeat of day one as a way to reground yourself and to evaluate your evolution in your spiritual awareness. This meditation is the meditation practice that you really want to do on a regular basis. It is the first step of sharing territory. Now is the time to take a look and see how differently you are experiencing sharing territory with your horse and the subtle shifts that you have made in your conscious awareness. This meditation is the one that I do with my horse on a daily basis. It is the first step in the Waterhole Rituals. This is the most important way to connect to the very heart of the horse and to re-connect to your true nature. 

Pick a place that is no further than 60 feet away and no closer than 20 feet from your horse so you both have your personal space without influencing each other’s mobility and freedom. This way your horse can easily reach you, if he chooses, and stay present to the moment focused in the environment. What is important here is that you want sharing the moment and the environment to be the reason for the bond. 

Take a chair, a pen, and a journal with you.  Find a peaceful and comfortable spot. If you do not want your horse to visit, because you would not feel safe with him approaching you while you are sitting down in a chair, pick a spot that your horse would not want to go to. You could also put food down for him away from where you are sitting in order to keep him in his own area. If you want your horse to visit, choose a spot that your horse would like to hang out in. This way he may come to you for a visit if he chooses.  However, do not put food down close to where you are sitting.  The food will distract him from feeling a connection with you.  Use the food only to keep him away from you, if you do not feel safe with him coming up to you.

Guided Meditation Practice

Take time to relax so that you can feel at home in the environment that you are sharing with your horse.   Put your full attention on what you are feeling and thinking in the moment and write about it. This is the first step in finding your true self. You are aligning your left-brain with the present moment through your journaling. If you have any streaming thoughts that you can not turn off, welcome them and journal about them. As you write, stay aware of your environment and notice how the environment makes you feel.

Ask yourself - Is your horse peaceful and relaxed? Is your mind clear? Are you relaxed?  If not, write about what you feel is in your way.  When you have all your thoughts written down, pause to reach a still point of relaxation, then write about how you would like to feel, in detail. 

Feel the stillness in the moment. Feel the connection you are feeling with your horse. Feel the pure joy in your heart for the love that you share with your horse.  Receive wholeheartedly each new moment that has never been before.  Feel these moments in your breath. Notice the gratefulness that is rising out of you.   

If you have more thoughts, turn them into feelings.  Turn your feelings into awareness of the moment and the connection you share with your horse.  Put your attention on your well-being that is present in the here and now.  Be only aware of the moment and feel your breath breathing you. Know that you are full of love and that you are loved by everything that is nurturing and kind. In this state you should feel a deeper connection to the heart of your horse.  Enjoy!
