Kin Essence - Taking action is often the only way we can truly motivate ourselves and others
Humans have a relationship with horses that conjures feelings of freedom, devotion and passion within us all. Despite their immense strength and power, horses are vegetarians, feeding on grass, grains and seeds, showing us the physical vitality and strength that we can gain by eating natural, plant-based foods. Even though horses are capable of incredible physical feats, it is rarely necessary for them to do so, meaning that they choose their moments to use their power with specific intention and purpose.
Their only natural defence against predators is to run. Horses help us to channel our own drive, passion and motivation to get moving toward our goals. They naturally become more confident, learn and grow when they have positive experiences. The horse can teach us that in times of uncertainty, we must use our negative experiences to give us that little nudge from behind in order to move forward in the right direction.
When we feel the strong urge to move forward, we realise there is no longer anything fulfilling to us where we were standing still for so long. In life, we can see that sometimes we must decide whether to be the workhorse or the show pony and be at peace with the fact that we might be both! We are reminded to see that putting in the leg work will allow us the abidance to pursue greener pastures at the other end and to stop long enough to show the world what we have learnt in our travels.
