“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” —Vincent Van Gogh
Today when I was out with the horses in the early morning, I was reminded of the beauty of spring, nature’s medicine. Standing in silence with Luca and Skye Mama, I engaged all my senses as we stood silent under the blue sky: the fragrant orange blossoms, the warmer morning air against my skin, and the vibrant pink blossoms on the trees. As I ran my hands over the horses’ coat, I felt the shedding of a season and the arrival of a new one. I thought this is the perfect time to release those inner thoughts of “not being worthy” and feel into your heart. Your heart is where your brilliance lives; your authentic voice lives and breathes here. You have just forgotten that voice.
The horses and I invite you to go out today and enjoy the beautiful spring air. Feel with all your senses. When you are ready move to the center of your chest, look up to the sky, take a deep breath, and boldly proclaim what you are worthy of. Say it loudly, feel the vibration of your words, and set forth on your path of renewal. Feel your heart beat faster and set your old stories free—see them fly away.
There are voices that live inside your subconscious mind that probably have whispered to you for many years. Once you can connect with these stories and experiences, you can shed the energy of not being worthy. This is the beauty of the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method—exploring stories that no longer serve you and starting a new narrative of worthiness that tells the story of the beauty of who you are. The energy of “I am worthy, I am beautiful, I am capable, I am fierce, I am loved, I am invincible” will come through. When you practice and feel your body, you will begin to see. And most importantly, you will fly.
May the gift of spring be with you today.
Love, Vivian, Luca and Skye Mama
