Horse Whisperings

Saddle up, close your eyes for a moment and
take a mental trip back to ancient Sumeria . . .

Venture to a land once called the Fertile Crescent
We now know as the Middle East

The landscape was different then –
Probably looked more like a Garden of Eden

A time when horses were first domesticated by colorful but slow-footed humans

The birthplace of the “Big Three” religions that dominate
the climate of our planet today
Interestingly, they all trace their lineage backed to Abraham

So what’s all the fuss over which one is right?

There’s no need to blow things out of proportion

May we ease our brush fire fairy tales –
of egocentric beliefs of who is inferior or superior
Don’t you know that we are all cut from the same cloth?

Today, our world is galloping at a rapid pace
Spinning ever faster round and round

The global economy is on life support
We witness an impetus for a more equitable distribution of power

People want the freedom to choose the direction of their lives
But it can’t happen free from the cost of responsibility

As the light dims, we transition into a darker place in our souls

Synchronizing with equal balance of yin and yang energies
On a fleeting Autumn Equinox in later September

But before that, a New Moon powerfully ignites new beginnings next week

We are equipped with gear packed in bags handed down to us by our ancestors

Release the baggage that weighs you down

Just let it go . . .

Horses lighten our load so that we carry less of a burden
Their energy has opened our gait
With the freedom to journey into new frontiers and blaze new trails

Shamans have been using Horse medicine to
Fly through the air and touch the heavens

Picture a medicine shield from the Dreamtime
Bringing balance into our shared material world

We are free-spirited travelers here
Awakening to the power and magical side of being human

“You always have a choice”

Especially when stressed and sitting in the hot seat . . .
Try to choose love over fear

When holding a loving space, the truth will become self-evident

And then in that moment, you will be set free to the realm of inner peace

See you further on up the trails,

Galloping into New Frontiers with Horse

Traveling with Horse this week
Saddling up with power in freedom

Do you need to take more risks and embrace freedom?

With attached price tag of responsibility
Merely the capacity to respond to any given situation

Is your independence being restrained?

Galloping past the dark horse of Winter Solstice this week
into blazing novel frontiers on New Moon

Is it time to embark on a physical or mental journey?

Horse whisperings gradually coax back the light

What seeds do we want to plant, water and give birth to
Come spring then blossoming into summer?

Until we know Nature’s energetic balance of
masculine and feminine at Spring Equinox
Tis the season to remember to balance work and play
Not forgetting the importance of rest and down time

May we heed the spirit of the holidays
without getting lost in the mania of consumerism

Are you doing your part to assist civilization within your own environment?

We temper our sexuality and emotional darker edges

Are you adequately expressing your sexuality?

Please consider lightening up with humor and empathy

With meditation, we enter into a judgment free zone
Where we remember our old selves
by walking in the footsteps of our past lives

Are you honoring what this civilization has given you?

Picture fading old trails of multinational corporations
Greedily protecting good old boy maximum economic profits . . .
Growing into New Earth friendly businesses of sustainable harmonic living
in political alignment with Nature

Instead of getting sucked into the excitement of a potential opportunity
Consider sitting with that feeling and watch the impulse to act pass by for a spell

Are you feeling unsure or indecisive about which direction to take your life?

We have discussed the interplay between order and chaos
Is sacrificing our freedom worth the security of a police state?

When we practice letting-go of our attachments
We get in touch with our deeper soul light
that radiates outward for others to experience

See you further on up the trails,

Getting Back on the Horse, while riding Freely, Powerfully and Responsibly toward the Winter Solstice

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.

Stay True,

Ari
