Does Visualization Really Help You Get What You Want?
Today I took a different route home to pick up the mail after attending the Mike Lyon seminar on Social Networking at Tulsa's Little Theater.
It's not like I was depressed or anxious. I just didn't feel like going back to work quite yet.
So I stopped off at the Fairgrounds to see if I could find my old horse trainer at the year-end schooling show.
I really haven't been there in years since I don't ride any more. It was really quiet because today they were doing the low jumps and the green horses were doing their rounds.
I sat in the stands and watched the rounds and listened to the music. It was so rhythmic. Just watching the horses and breathing. For me it was meditative like yoga.
I remembered how I used to just stand at the window and watch my horses run through the front pasture.
But I am not being nostalgic. There is something primal about watching horses -- even under saddle.
I wandered off and found my friend who sells tack -- she owns The Horse of Course in Claremore. We talked until a customer came up and we were introduced.
Wouldn't you know it -- the lady I met has a little mare for sale by a wonderful Oldenburg stallion whom I have always admired. The mare is just getting going and so she is affordable -- well, sort of -- let's say she is within reach if I sell a few nice houses.
So I went and looked at the mare and then I waited until I could watch her in the ring.
Suddenly I started realizing that I could own that mare and be riding again. I just have to want it and make it happen.
I just came out of Landmark Education's Self Expression and Leadership Program where I was a coach. In the Curriculum for Living we learn that we can have whatever we want in life.
There is nothing stopping me.
I want another horse.
It may be that mare. It may be another animal. It doesn't matter.
I can visualize what I want. I can feel the mane in my fingers. It's going to happen.
I will be buying another horse and boarding it by April 2011. Pictures will be posted on Active Rain by June 1, 2011.
