One of my favorite things to do is to share space with my equines. Sometimes I sit in the pasture with them. Sometimes I sit outside the fence like I am doing tonight. While eating grass is normally one of Chief's FAVORITE things to do, tonight he has decided to park himself right in front of me and not move. Staring me down.
At first I thought it was because the dogs were with me, but no. I had just posted a short video on facebook that showed Chief with his mane blowing in the wind (he looked very handsome). The caption said that Chief would like to wish everyone a Magical weekend. Once I realized that Chief wasn't going anywhere, I figured he had a message for me. Sure enough, he did. He wanted me to write a blog about Magic. So I asked him what he would like me to say and to help me out.
So let's start at the beginning with how this Magic theme began. At the end of April I went to a retreat at Epona Rise Retreat Center in Kamloops, British Colombia to see one of my mentors, Hillary Schneider. One of my goals was to learn more about my intuition and how it manifests for me. As I was standing in the valley looking up at the mountains admiring their beauty I very clearly received the message "It's all a mirage, none of this is real, you can create whatever you want to create". We've all seen the Matrix, right? And I have heard this message communicated by many different mentors in one form or another, as I am sure many of you have. But it has never been so real as it was at that moment as I was gazing up at those mountains.
Hillary has a herd of 22 rescue horses and they each have their own medicine that they are here to share. No surprise, one of the horses that showed up for me over and over during my visit was Peter Pan the Magic Man. Another one of Hillary's horses that I was very drawn to is named Malachi. Malachi's medicine is about divine purpose and really owning what it is we bring to share with the world in this life. As I was sitting in the field with Hillary's horses, I kid you not, this is what happened. I was looking at Malachi, who was across the field, thinking about going to visit him. As I was thinking about this, I felt a horse come up behind me and very strongly push his head into my back, clearly telling me to get up and go. Peter Pan the Magic Man (horse), physically pushed me, and told me to get up and go see Malachi. So basically the message was, believe in the magic and get off your ass and go own your gifts. It's time. As many of us who share space with horses often say, "You can't make this shit up".
What gifts do you have that you have been hiding from the world? What did you come here to share? It's time. And it's never too late. As Wayne Dyer said, "Don't die with your music still in you".
Ever since I got back from Epona Rise I have been telling my friends that I feel like I am living in Magic Land. I am still very much grounded here on earth, however I do believe in Magic. I do believe that we all have the ability to manifest. That we create our own lives. For me, living in Magic Land means staying in the flow of creating the life I want to live. That means there are lots of things that I have to filter out, to not give my attention to. It means I have to remember to clear my energy field often. At least daily I remind myself of that message I received in the valley.
The other day Hillary intuited a message for me from Peter Pan that perhaps explains it best. I think it's a powerful message for all of us: "Remember to really reclaim that belief in magic, that you can create anything. Spend time hanging out in the space above the mundane day to day life to nurture your imagination and your visions. Magic is real, look for it everyday, and know you can nurture that belief. Reclaim that space of innocence and belief around magic. This is part of your journey right now." Thank you Hillary and Peter Pan.
Here at Spirit of Strength, Chief is most definitely the Magic Man. Thank you Chief for standing in front of me tonight until I heard your message. Chief has a favor to ask. Please share your magic with at least one person today. Our true strength comes when we share our Magic.
Believe in the Magic,
