The Action Within Inaction

I’m currently in an Equine Therapy training in Austin, TX preparing to begin an equestrian center in Bahia, Brazil. My training has encompassed healing on the deepest of levels so that I ultimately can become truly present with the horses.  Learning that this is what we truly teach those who are called to any type of horsemanship work.  How to be in the present moment with the horses, to find this sense of presence in our daily lives. And from this point is where true healing can occur, where we can tap into our dreams and desires.  And ultimately live the life we were born to live.

Before each of my training sessions I arrive 30 minutes early to tune in, connect with nature, calm my mind and arrive fully.  During one of my meditations my intution guided me to write two small paragraphs.  The first was from my last post Whispers from My Feminine ♥️.  My teacher later described to me that this embodied the feminine aspect, Shakti.. receiving, receptive side.  And the second was Shiva, the masculine, both direct and wise, followed on the wings of the feminine. The words I received are below..

tuning inI feel the wind.

The coolness of the day.

The drops of rain here and there.

Amen.

I calm my mind

and come to this place

of zero thought.

Of the action within inaction.

My body,

my soul,

my mind,

my eyes

feel more nourished

now

then I have in quite some time..

So, I’m coming back to this blog after not posting anything for about 8 years.  Over the past two months random folks have recently started liking, following and commenting. I took this as a sign from the universe to begin again.

When I first began this blog, it was based on following my heart, trusting in its inherent wisdom and allowing it to guide my life.  Since this time I have truly done just this! And now it is leading me on this path of moving to Brasil, working with horses and discovering my next steps through its whispers.

I have renamed the blog the name of the Equestrian Project.. Coração de Ouro, Heart of Gold.. For our main requirement is that each human and each horse involved innately carries a heart of gold within them.  I’ll be writing poetry and insights all received from the horses and that which I am learning along the way. 

Thank you for being on this journey with me.  I am not sure what is to unfold.  I’ve learned through my training to allow the Mother, the Divine Feminine to move through me, to listen and for my actions to be guided in this way. I feel immense gratitude for what is to come at the very core of my being! 

Blessings,

Angelique Marie

Breaking down your walls

beauty. What does it mean to you? I find myself struggling to feel beautiful. Am constantly reminding myself to note the beauty in the world around me. To enjoy the beautiful moments I experience in my day-to-day life. But what is beautiful to me may not be beautiful to you.I find that we, human beings, place unnecessary standards and judgements on beauty, on certain situations, on people, on emotions, on anything really. We tend to live our life according to the measures of society. But why?

I sometimes hesitate to write on certain topics because I’m afraid of what people will think of me. I’ll act in certain ways because I don’t want others to judge me. I’ll say certain things around certain people because I know that is what they want to hear. But at times my insides are screaming to say the opposite. To do the opposite. For that is not who I am and definitley not who I am meant to be. I find that these thoughts are mainly based in my subconscious. Before I began the inner journey of getting to know myself, I didn’t realize the insecurities that guided my actions.

If you haven’t realized my entire blog is based on finding/discovering your true self. On becoming the person you were born to become. On living out your passion and purpose in life. I am not an expert on this. I honestly do not know many of the answers. But one thing that sets me apart is that I am trying. I realize that I have many things to learn about life, about the world around me. I am constantly working on understanding myself, am working on not shying away from the unknown, and am striving to follow my heart. I am realizing that it is worse to ignore something than it is to actually face it. I am openly admitting my faults and my insecurities. I still worry what others think of me, have doubts in myself and am not always positive. Yet, I’ve found that through the process of facing my insecurities, they actually begin to lessen. Whenever I listen to my heart and base my actions on what I really wish to do, I find that I feel satisfied. I realize that I set my own limitations and the obstacles that I experience are all my own doing. If I don’t care for the way things are going in my life, I must be the one to change it.

My attempted point is to empower you to strive to be your own person. To continuously do things that make you uncomfortable. To face your biggest, deepest, darkest fears. And to actively work on not put anything off for a later time. For putting things off is merely the onset of procrastination. Embarking upon bad habitual practices will only slow the emergence of the beautiful being that is patiently awaiting to shine through.

I challenge you to think about your insecurities. In what ways do they control your life? What situations make you uncomfortable and how often do you avoid them? What type of people do you surround youreslf with? Do they challenge you to grow? Can you be your complete self around them? Just take some time to think. It doesn’t matter where you are, just as long as your are by yourself. In this way you will not allow anything or anyone else to influence your thoughts. Give yourself 30 seconds or give yourself 30 minutes, however much time you feel to be relevant!
