Lessons Through Love – A Woman’s Bond With Her Horse and Soul Companion
My sweet friend, Njari Johnson shared a beautiful story this morning about a woman – Holly Tagg – and her horse companion – Abe -which really hit home. It reminded me so much about my relationship and bond with Nestor (my rabbit) and how the depth of love we shared was, and continues to be, the greatest teaching in my life.
My favorite excerpt from Holly’s story is this:
Towards the beginning of this new communication I was out in the pasture with Abe. He wanted me to put my hand in his mouth. I kept telling him no. I suddenly saw an image in my head. I assumed it was a flash of a past life we had together. I was riding him at a full gallop through a beautiful woods. I heard a roaring sound behind us. As I turned to look I saw the whole woods was on fire. I heard Abe say, “You used to trust me with your life, now you don’t trust me at all.” I felt horrible, I put my hand in his mouth. He promptly bit me! I said, “Abe that doesn’t bode well in the trust department!” He said, “I could have broken your skin or crushed your bones. I bit you to show you that the lessons I will teach you may be painful at times, but they will never crush or break you.”
This mirrors the kind of lessons I came to know well with Nestor.
I’m really excited to see more and more stories surfacing of amazing human and animal bonds, as well as animal communication coming to the forefront. It’s a testament to shifts taking place in the world, more people embracing all of life, and the value of partnering with Mother Earth, the Nature Realm, and all of her children.
