We humans have been paying attention to Nature’s cycles, like our time-tested traditional celebrations with Solstices and Equinoxes for at least 45,000 years. When time traveling in our spirit-mind-body vessels, we watch our ancient Sumerian ancestors saddle up with horse’s power and venture outward. Moreover, Western astrology reveals the sign Sagittarius as a man-horse hybrid (centaur), while Chinese astrology showcases the horse as one of its 12 signs. In shamanism, ingesting horse medicine allows a shaman to fly through the air and reach Heaven. On December 21 2012, we mark the end of the Mayan Calendar, signaling the death of an old world and a birth of a new one. Will we observe a major global event that we all bear witness to or will we remain in the dark? Is it the end of the world as we know it? Will extraterrestrials come out of the closet to humanity? I don’t know about that, but I believe we are in a process of a radical transformation in our consciousness, our Planet and the Universe throughout. It is hard to deny that more energies are streaming in–particularly for those of us sensitive to them. We are consciousness, rather than what consciousness identifies with. When we wake up to that, we become the change we want to see in the world around us. Historically, horse has been seen as symbolic of burial rites and birth, which synchronizes with the death energy of Winter. Somewhat akin to tracking animals, we might not actually see physical evidence of heavenly activity here on the ground. However, when staying alert, we awaken to perceptual shifts that allow us to see and hear our spirited friends speak to us. In our modern world, particularly in the West, perhaps this means that we kill less, give inner peace a chance and stop fueling wars that are destined to lose. What we resist, persists. When co-creating a New Earth, individual and collective egos wane and spiritual powers wax on. In this Love and Light, we invest in loss–less inner pollution and more renewable clean energy radiating from within our Heart centers. Horses represent freedom and power and remind us that we always have choices.
I remember when a past teacher from the old school once confidently asserted that we live in a causal and deterministic Universe. Further, he argued that freewill wasn’t scientifically plausible, master illusionist that he was. On the surface that might be true, particularly when identifying with victim consciousness. Responsibility is the price tag of freedom–sobering but empowering. Moreover, it isn’t always easy to see the reality of our choices and accept the consequences that follow the choices that we make–especially when we are unconscious of them, spiritually speaking. When horse gallops into our energy field, we ingest powerful medicine to get back in the saddle and blaze beyond the surface area of cause and effect (karma) and leap into the realm of infinity, where intention, abundance and possibility await. While there is science to this phenomena, we probably won’t find it in Establishment science as reported on the corporate media. How long will it take for the movers and shakers of our Planet to giddy up with horse’s energy by modeling a balanced medicine shield to facilitate the movement toward power to the people? Is bullying workers by threatening to cut their hours to pay for healthcare fair and balanced news? Isn’t blaming an abused person for making poor choices in relationships an example of the same criticized victim behavior? Isn’t a parent who enables their child’s behavior partly responsible? Don’t we all bear some level of responsibility for school shootings, given the culture we are part of? Demonizing is part of devolution and victim consciousness. However, hitching a ride with horse helps us evolve our collective awareness by trotting into a new frontier of egalitarian freedom and responsibility. We are taking back our ego-centered projections and authentically looking within our own inner state of consciousness in a respectful way. Spiritually speaking, when we eat like a horse, the ego shrinks as personal power grows. We hear a lot about Christ this time of year. Who was He? When we understand our Divine Nature, we understand that Great Spirit gave birth to Christ as an incarnation-embodiment of Christ Consciousness, the Divine Marriage between God/Goddess and masculine and feminine (yin-yang) energies that flow inside all of us. When standing in our I Am Presence (consciousness), we know this experience of Love and Light. Christ arrived to show us that the Kingdom of Heaven is within all of us and inspiring us to Love one another.
Developmentally, humanity is struggling right now. We can all stand to develop the social skill of empathy by remembering the experience of walking in someone else’s moccasins, slippers, boots, etc. We all win when we remember the spirit of compassion, caring, teaching, loving and sharing our gifts, talents and abilities with one another. But many of us don’t know how to effectively emote, govern our own behavior and have difficulty accessing and acquiring a sound repertoire of social skills. At any given moment, many of us still position ourselves as inferior or superior toward our fellow brothers and sisters, while clinging to a belief that we are separate and disconnected from one another. There are enemies to kill and wars to fight and win. This is how we justify the subtle and provocative violence we commit against one another. When we feel right inside and wronged by someone else, we tend to act out by attacking another person. We have different preferences in this regard. Some of us prefer cutting someone up by way of a sarcastic comment that is cleverly cloaked behind an angry edge, while others bully by physically threatening or assaulting another human being. Some folks make a killing by hiding behind desks, while voting for more weapons of mass destruction and rationally arguing this insanity as doing the right thing. However, when we humans remember that we are all beautiful black stallions, while saddling up with inner peace and sending Love to one another, we help blaze heavenly trails on Earth for all to share.
