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

Whispers from My Feminine ♥️

Look for the meaning..

of everything

in life.

Pay attention to its whispers

its signals

its signs..

for they show up

& are always present.

Beckoning us..

to come forth,

to awaken

to this very moment.

Present.

Presence.

Perseverance.

 

Lady Bird Lake

I’m sitting at Lady Bird Lake, listening to the sound of the wind rustling the leaves in the trees. I can hear the chirping of birds coming from somewhere close by. Out in front of me I see the sun, shining ever so brightly, slowly beginning its evening ritual of setting as it simultaneously glistens over the water.

How blessed am I to be able to have such an experience? Too many times I’ve taken this for granted and I don’t doubt there’ll be more to come. I’m appreciating it now, for that is all that matters. Being content with where I am.

My friend Daniella is on her way to join me. How blessed am I?

To have people who care, to be surrounded by love, to have the openness within me which allows me to appreciate the sheer beauty of our world.

Thank you God, thank you Yahweh, thank you Divine Spirit, thank you guided path. I feel completely content, am embracing the fact that I am meant to be here in Austin, TX at Lady Bird Lake at this very moment, and am honored. Honored to be the person I am. Honored to be given the gift of life. Simply Honored. 🙂

spreading my message

I’m not posting things as often as I’d like and I think I may have pin-pointed some of the reason.  I actually have quite a few blogs written that I haven’t posted, for I am not happy with them.  I’ve held certain things back from you guys and due to this I find that I hold myself back from truly writing what I wish.  I’m ready to write in a more creative way, to write on different things,to  allow you to get to know a different side of me. Since my move, I feel as if I’ve begun my journey.  I’ve struggled with going against what my heart is pulling me to do.  Mainly because it is not easy, it does not make any sense.  Yet, as I listen to my heart and allow it to guide me, I am noting positive transformations within myself.  

 I have a writing that I free wrote about my passion, what I see myself doing in the near future.  I’ve spent months attempting to hone my thoughts and they are finally here!  I shared it with a friend last week and since then I’ve been inspired to share it with a few others.  Something is telling me to post it as a blog.  After reading it,  you will know where my heart lies and will have a deeper understanding of my earlier writings.  From this point forward, I will strive to free write the rest of my blog posts.  To grow in confidence, to not think twice what others think of me, to allow myself to truly feel free in every possibly moment of my life.  And this is the perfect way for me to begin…  

“I wish to travel amongst different cultures. To promote peace. To help people find their inner passions and desires.
 
We were all born to fulfill a certain purpose. When we work in alignment with our purpose we begin to feel enlightened and find that we are happier. We have the ability to travel the world, experience different cultures and can be who we wish to be. 
As one of my favorite authors Matthew Kelly has quoted, “Energy is created by a sense of purpose and a lifestyle that integrates our legitimate needs, our deepest desires and our talents.” We are a people consumed with our day-to-day activities. Worrying over our next meal, what we are going to do that night, what we are going to wear. Think about these thoughts. They are so minute, so trivial. We have people starving in other parts of the world. We are using up our fossil fuels, wasting electricity. We have a problem and we go on living our lives as if there isn’t one. I am so saddened by this. We have the potential to change this. We have to put our minds, our hearts, our thoughts, our actions together. We can’t go on living like this. 

  

I first want to travel amongst different cultures and gain knowledge and experience the different lifestyles. I realize that there are problems in the U.S., but across all nations there is one thing that we share. We are all human beings. At our core we are all equal. I wish to acquaint myself with different cultures and gain hands on experience with their problems. Really get to know them, for I am confident that it will only heighten my level of motivation in bringing our world together.  

Once I travel through different countries, experiencing different cultures I plan on visiting the US. There has to be a huge change in the way we live our lives. If we can get enough people together, we can find solutions to our problems. I have complete faith in humanity. I understand that things will not change overnight, but baby steps is all that I care about. I’d like to see communities coming together. Growing their own gardens, striving to aim their meals on eating local produce, finding different ways of transportation. I’d like to find a way of actually getting people to care about our beautiful planet. To appreciate all that it is. Ahhh, I find myself overwhelmed, anxious. There are soo many things I don’t know. I have soo much research to do. But I can’t give up. Just reading new things a few minutes every day will greatly expand my knowledge. The main thing I must remember is to listen to my heart, feel it. When I allow myself to write and think things in this way I feel so motivated, so connected to life, to the divine spirit, to my path. I feel as if my time is coming soon. It’s been building but I’m about to explode and omgosh I’m soo ready for it to happen. I feel as if I can’t go on living my life of just hanging out. I’m not fulfilled, I’m not truly happy. Have I ever been? Looking back, no. My heart is aching to do something. I almost feel as if I can’t take it. But it’s this feeling that is pushing me to find my passion, for the moment that I realize that I am completely content and happy and fulfilled will be the most amazing feeling ever. And I will truly appreciate it. I am learning to be patient though, for this will not happen until I am ready. Until I accept the present moment for what it is.”  ~Angelique Watson, April 2010
