It’s your Choice – Break Free From Auto-Pilot
3-Day SkyHorseEGE™ Workshop
“Our lives are the sum total of the choices we have made.” ~ Wayne Dyer
“Life is the sum of all your choices. ~ Goethe
“Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.” ~ Robert F. Bennett
Every day we are met with 1000’s of choices. Most often, we do not recognize our opportunity to choose because we unconsciously allow our patterns of social conditioning and habits to control our actions. Choice follows awareness, and if we are not aware of our opportunity to choose, we move along under the control of our pre-programed responses; we are on auto-pilot.
Some of us set out on a path that was designed for us by someone else, or we have been conditioned by our culture, with some expectation of who we “should” be, what we “should” do. Over time, we find ourselves unhappy and dissatisfied with the life we are living because the path we are on feels like a detour. Others of us have experienced great success in a particular phase of life, but as time moves on, we begin feeling stagnant or stuck. We may have lost our clarity of purpose and direction. We may find the practices, habits and patterns that served us in our previous phase of life are not getting us where we want to go now. Our values and beliefs may shift as we mature, and we may need to reevaluate what we care about, what has heart and meaning.
“Horses make decisions based on how they feel, not on how they think.” ~ Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi, founder of SkyHorseEGE™
Horses, like wild animals, are connected to and trust their instincts, intuition and sensate responses. The horse mirrors our underlying mood, attitudes, fears, passions, and in so doing helps us to access our deeper intuitive perceptions. Horses listen to how we’re being…to who we’re being and respond to our inner conversations and inquiries in the present moment. They help to increase our awareness of how and why we are choosing, so we can begin to make conscious choices that will move us in the direction we desire. Our intuition and our senses – our internal compass – naturally inform us of the choice that aligns with our spirit. By reconnecting to what is important to us, to what has heart and meaning, and by honoring our intuitive and sensate responses and instincts, we can re-align with our internal compass and gain clarity on who we are now and where we are going.
