One of my favorite teachers is Martha Beck. A life coach who is incredibly wise, engaging life with humor and humility. She’s recently taken up the practice of horse whispering and speaks about this experience in her recent blog post.
I had to share an excerpt with you that I found so incredibly useful in dealing with challenges big & small.
“…Equus coaches are using such subtle body language to connect with the horses that it often looks as though they’re simply standing near the mustangs, completely relaxed, barely moving. That’s the energy that allows the horses to calm down and learn that it’s safe to be herded and handled…
….Today, look upon your life, your bank account, your family, each person you meet, as a wild horse. If a problem looks difficult, relax. If it looks impossible, relax even more. Then begin encouraging small changes, putting just enough pressure on yourself to move one turtle step forward. Then rest, savor, celebrate. Then step again. You’ll find that slow is fast, gentle is powerful, and stillness moves mountains.”
Wishing you ease and support as we all move forward at a pace we can truly handle.
