It can be challenging to be in the moment while in a human body. There are many distractions – ideas about the past, future, judgment, guilt. We can get lost in this barrage of noise in our heads.
We all face moments or periods when we feel lost or question our purpose. It often hits me during transitions when the universe is stringing together opportunities that are not yet visible. The experience is that of being in a void. It can feel challenging to withstand without moving to a place of frustration or despair. During a recent shift in my life, a feathered friend reminded me to have trust and faith.
My mentor, Maia, recently sent me this beautiful picture of her horses, Delight and Delight. The larger one of the two recently passed over. As I admired the image of their physical bodies, Delight explained to me that his duality was a Gift – a Lesson in Self-Love. Delight’s older form was able to nurture his younger companion in the same way that we can comfort and teach our inner child.
Early one morning, 17 years ago, Jessie was born in my bed. A beautiful Orange Tabby named Destiny gave birth to 4 kittens before Jessie jumped out. He wants to make it perfectly clear that he was not “the runt of the litter.” Jessie has always had a great sense of humor and an ability to make me laugh. He was destined to be my guide.
