Running With My Dreams – A Little Nudge From White Horse
One thing I have been reflecting on while here are my dreams and heart callings, daring myself to dream bigger in these great and majestic outdoors, stretch my imagination, and explore all the rich possibilities I have but to choose.
I can’t remember who said this, but these words ring true to me:
If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.
So bigger I go into digging deeper in my heart for the dream/s that call for me to fulfill them – no limitations! And if it isn’t scary enough, then likely not the leap I would like to take, as I’m ready for big growth and challenge.
I spent much of today’s low-key activities exploring further in my mind and heart. And upon arriving back to the house, decided to take a walk on the land here and came to an opening where the friend you see here was.
He was facing the other direction, but as I spoke to him, he immediately turned and stood perfectly straight, solid, and aligned with me, listening, tuning in, and alert – like we were perfect mirrors of each other.
Then he relaxed into a gentle gaze and almost became sleepy-eyed, but more like completely vulnerable and soft (as you see in the photos too, along with his ear positioning shifting into his relaxed state as well). He likely would have stayed there as long as I wanted, but I finally made my way back to the house, waving goodbye and thanking him for the connection.
For quite some time when I was a little girl I had a white horse spirit guide that was with me and I was enraptured with Unicorns and Pegasus. Over time the horse changed sometimes to a golden chestnut, but for the longest time in my life it’s always been large black horses that drew me.
Until recently, when white horses have been showing up again in the last couple of months.
I mentioned before the white horse and “unicorn in disguise”, Tareena at Epona Rise had come to me. And this horse today reminded me of Tareena. But again, the white. And all while I’ve been exploring my heart’s desires and dreams more deeply the last couple of months and not just all of the possibilities, but also whatever fears or insecurities may be around jumping on the train full steam ahead.
Horses symbolize strength, freedom of expression, grace, power, life energy, vitality, passionate desires, a driving force in your life to express your authenticity or what you thrive for, being in harmony with your primitive desires, and balancing those instincts with the more discerning tamed parts. They are transparent reflections of you and everything deep or hidden you hold within.
White horses bring illumination, developing awareness of your instincts and intuition, resurrection (interesting that I spent a lot of time on “Resurrection Bay” here in Alaska – more on that when I return), bringing things to light, seeing with clarity, and are messengers of rebirth.
White is also about purity, innocence, wholeness, completion of a cycle in your life, awakening, elevating your spiritual aspirations, openness, growth, purification, creativity, moving in a new direction, new beginnings,fresh slates, and a blank canvas awaiting creative impetus.
The cool thing about white is that you can’t hide behind it since it amplifies everything in its way. 😉 YAY!
I’m feeling close to running with my new dreams and I look forward to what my heart chooses to follow next, but you can be assured it will be big (well at least big for me) and it will take me into uncharted waters, calling forth facing all things head on with trust and love only.
Time to join my horse friend that was always with me as a little girl and embrace the wind through my hair and charge mightily forward with each grounding foot that will beat to the new rhythm of my own drum.
Exciting and scary all at once! Yay!
As my other friend, Mr. Willy Wonka, shares:
“The suspense is terrible…I hope it lasts” 😉
And like Mr. Wonka, I also believe “anything you want to, do it….Wanta change the world? There’s nothing to it.”
We simply have to make a choice, commit to it full heart and soul, and then take a step forward. The rest will start to fall into place and begin to materialize.
I’m ready to release any fears and all of my “past”. This is a new moment to create with full awareness of all that I am and all that is pure of my heart. I am not afraid to make a choice, knowing I have the power to continue choosing anew. I will not live a life half lived.
Thank you Mr. Wonka and thank you my white horse friend for the nudges you each reflect.
