All the things that are happening in your life and have meaning and true value for you are coming to you as a gift. You can grow and change your life by opening yourself for more and more gifts. You can change your life with your horse by opening yourself for more and more gifts from your horse.
But, how to open for more gifts?
When you receive something nice for Christmas how can you open for more? By showing your Gratefulness.
When you show that you enjoy what you are getting, you open the possibility of receiving even more. When you are Grateful for the things you already got, you open yourself to receive more in the future.
When you like how your horse walks, you open yourself to receive beautiful trot. When you thank your horse and enjoy from the bottom of your heart, how your horse trots, you open the possibility of canter.
You can go to your horse today, and experience it.
How to be Grateful?
You are Grateful when you are happy with the things you are getting. You can show your Gratefulness by using and enjoying what you have already received. And you can always say “thank you”.
I remember one clinic when we (me and Anna) asked participants to say “thank you” to the horses. No one could do it. It may seem very simple, bit really no one could say words “thank you”.
We started to talk about it, and they said “for what am I thanking? My horse hasn’t done anything yet”.
Your horse is always there, waiting for you. Always ready to be with you and to teach you. If you have a spare minute, your horse is ready to be with you. Whenever you see your horse, you may thank him for being for you. Just for being, not for doing anything special.
The same is with your body. Your body is always for you. Forgiving you all the time. Always ready to support you. It is an expression of Pure Love.
Why is it difficult to be Grateful?
Things we do outside are the expression of the Reality we create inside of us. If you are not Grateful for your existence, it is difficult to be really Grateful for anything. If you are not Grateful for you body, it is difficult to be Grateful for anything.
How can being Grateful change my life?
When you grow and expand your Awareness, you experience moments of bigger Awareness, and later, again your Awareness can shrink. It is a very important process because only when you gain something and lose it, you can really become Aware of it.
Your Awareness can generally grow in this waving movement, but to make it grow and grow, you need to feel the new space with your Gratefulness. When you are not Grateful for whatever you already received thanks to your growing Awareness, you will lose it and start from the beginning.
When you are Grateful for everything that is coming to you, thanks to your bigger Awareness, then you are opening the possibility to receive more and more and to grow your Awareness even more.
