It has been about a decade ago when I finally could make an old dream come true, a desire I had since I was a teenager.
What might not sound like a big deal for some people, for me it took two decades to make it happen.
When I was a student to become a veterinary doctor, and later getting my Ph.D. in molecular genetics, I did not have the time nor the money for such, and after that, when starting to work as a scientist, go figure, I never, ever had the time.
I think I had not even noticed that I was turning into a workaholic. I loved researching, I could express my creativity and curiosity and satisfy my need for learning new stuff. Though, I think it, was the circumstances and not necessarily my desire to work 24/7. Nevertheless, this time was a great teacher in many ways, not just career wise and intellectually. Even though I was good at following my intuition and inner voice in general and at work, listening to my personal needs was a luxury, and I often ignored it. I did some quite original research where a lot of creativity was needed, and my firm intuition was very helpful for my work progress.
Anyway! That pivotal year 10 years or so back, I decided to finally give a damn and started to fulfill some personal needs, one at the time.
My dream was to go on a riding vacation, an adventure where you spend all day long on horseback for a week or so.
I very soon found a place in Spain, at the Costa Brava, which had different programs and options, and I was excited. I choose one with a lot of variety, where we would also be riding on the coast. We would ride from place to place, and our luggage was brought after. I could write an entire story only about all the synchronicities and miraculous things that happened from the moment I vocalized my desire and intention to make this trip happen, but this would fill pages. And this story is about my experience with my horse for a week.
Angelino, a PRE (Pura Raza Española – Pure Spanish Breed), as Andalusian horses without pedigree papers are called was my companion for this adventure.
We happened to be only three people on this horseback riding trip, and as I was asked if I´d like to take that particular horse, I felt an immediate connection.
The tour guide warned me right away about his stubbornness and also that he might be a bit wild since he was not on tour for three weeks after an injury.
I didn’t mind, I am an experienced equestrian and always up for a challenge.
Totally excited and happy I took Angelino, and we left the camp. After only a few meters I felt he was limping. For a brief moment I felt sad and thought I had to exchange him, but all of a sudden I noticed something intriguing.
He was faking it!
As an intuitive empath and animal empath, I could feel his feelings so he could not hide what was really going on. Telepathically I told him to stop fooling around because I will not put him back into the coral. I said to him that I know he is well and he better enjoy being out there again. This conversation took a few minutes and off we went. From that moment on, we were like melted, and he was the sweetest! We had the best time together, and if I could have, I would have taken him home with me!
Why did I call him an Angel in disguise; well, firstly his name was Angelino and secondly he reminded me so strongly of my abilities to communicate with animals, which had taken a back seat for many years. This adventure with him brought me back to where I belong, being in Service for Healing.
Being in and with nature and living My Nature.
