GIVING THANKS IS MORE THAN ONE DAY A YEAR!
The turkey meal is past, and we are full steam ahead into the holiday season. Thanksgiving may be over, but remaining thankful should never fade from our mind and hearts. How wonderful it is that the horses can assist us in remaining true to maintaining open and grateful hearts! Here is a bit of wisdom from them-enjoy!!
HOW HORSES TEACH US TO BE THANKFUL
Horses have an innate ability to accept what is, all the time. Wonderful models for us, to not resist and accept what is happening in our lives. Not only accept, but to bring us to a place of gratitude for all the blessings in our lives.
Horses are fully present and live in the moment, one moment at a time. They encourage us to slow down, stop, and notice. Notice what good things are unfolding directly in front of us. That can draw us to being thankful.
Horses do not get caught up in drama. If they are stressed, they feel the stress, and then do what they can to return to a state of satiation. They show us how we, too, can return to a state of calm, satisfaction and thankfulness.
Horses are masters of E.I. soft skills-listening, noticing, not reacting. When we become still, we, too can enlarge upon those necessary skills. We can increase our Emotional Intelligence quotient.
For thousands of years, we have ridden these magnificent animals. And, they have taken us where we needed to go. Now, we can sit with them, as they continue to take us where we need to go–to places, of stillness and gratitude. And, just their presence can bring us to a state of being thankful.
Here at The Resonant Horse, we are thankful for all of you who are reading this!
