I remember when I was bucked off a horse when I was three, had another erratic experience with a horse at a camp while on the cusp of early adolescence and avoided horses like the plague until early adulthood. But I faced my fears head on and got back in the saddle again on a family reunion at a Dude Ranch in Wolf, Wyoming some years back. It required trust and taking many deep breaths while traversing the narrow trails of the Big Horn Mountains, thousands of feet up from the deep valleys below. And today, I felt relaxed as I pet a horse at an Autumn fair with family. Has anyone out there ever seen the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’? If so, do You remember the razor-sharp cut from ‘The Dawn of Man’ scene tossing the bone in the air, to the floating Space Station? If I were re-imagining the film today, I might bridge the cut with a Unicorn gleaming the Heavens to the soundtrack Jimi Hendrix and Traffic jamming A Session together, “Excuse Me, While I Kiss The Sky”. “Mighty Horse . . . Power to run across open plains, or to bring the vision of the shields dancing in purple dream rain.” If only ‘the powers that were’ would join Us in tapping into the Power Animal of Horse, then We could all become ‘Captain Americas’ by accessing Our inner psychic shields when We need protection. In the Spirit of that, shamanic practices throughout the world, tap into Horse medicine to allow shamans to fly through the air and reach Heaven. In dreaming a New Dream, Horse represents freedom, basic instincts and personal power, which might mean taking more risks by embracing a Lao Tzu perspective, rather than strictly clinging to a Confucian one (not that the two are necessarily mutually exclusive). Giddy up Wayne, et. al., and “Do the Tao Now.” Thank you for inspiring Us to become the change We want to see in the world by sharing with Us Living the Wisdom of the Tao.
Additionally, given all the egoic pontificating over public-private budgetary issues and the sinking Titanic of the dying world, isn’t it empowering to know that Horse’s energy is free health care We may access, if only We allow for it? After all, Horse is responsible for allowing humanity the privilege of expanding into the Great Wide Open and freely mingling with diverse tribes. Now, I realize there are phallic attachments to 28 billion dollar nuclear warheads, Area 51 and black hole accounts that radically funnel monies from hard-working folks, whom are already pinching pennies to get by. We have blazed saddles in Monopoly, where the privileged few are trotting across the Globe, while the overwhelming majority watches “green fields turn to brown like paper in fire”. Moreover, if California is quenching Its thirst by drinking Its own toilet water, I Bee Leave that We can assist Frank Lloyd Wright’s Divine Hand in energetically flushing ‘the powers that were’ down his Guggenheim toilet in NYC without cutting down any trees or stinging anybody in the process. However, I strongly encourage the ‘Occupation on Wall Street’ to remember to keep their Underground Weather calm, so that Our Critical Mass will come about peacefully, as a developing Sacred Geometrical equilateral triangle becomes increasingly buoyant in the rising tides of Aquarian Sea of Consciousness. Here on Channel Now, We’re already inundated! We know that violence begets violence and those that rule by force and maximum economic profit only works in the Land of Make Believe. The Christ, Buddha, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Dr. King and many other ancestors have shown Us the way, through their peaceful acts of civil disobedience and rebellion.
Finally, I recently released a Genie vis-a-vis a Chinese fortune stating, “LEARN Chinese Zodiac-Horse (and) don’t let your limitations overshadow your talents.” In one of my Shamanic animal books, Horse folks are described by Chinese Zodiac as friendly, adventurous and very emotional and also appealing and persuasive. In that Light, who needs Gallup Polls, when White Stallion said, “You Dreamwalker have made the journey to heal a brother in need, to share the sacred pipe, and to heal Mother Earth. You have the knowledge through humility that you are an instrument of Great Spirit. As I carry you on my back, you carry the needs of the people on yours. In wisdom, you understand that power is not given lightly but awarded to those who are willing to carry responsibility in a balanced manner.” Perhaps ‘Rocky’ channeled his Horse totem when he saddled up Mickey’s teachings about balance and keeping ‘Franky Fear’ in his stall. In carrying a balanced Medicine Shield, We must remember to access an internal space of empathic shapeshifting and the wisdom remembering that “compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are gateways to power.” Who needs to be a distilled ‘Evil Dewar’, when Horse might inebriate Us toward trotting into the Spirit realm to guide Us on Our travels toward New Vistas and mythical journeys? And given my propensity toward Alpha Male energy, I am so thankful to Horse for helping me tame my sexual desires and release them to Heaven, where they can be transmuted into a formless single malt beverage for God’s Holy Grail. After all, I’d rather be a True King than a fool’s gold.
I Hopi You are well,
