I’m glad to hear Anneke’s update on how she’s going with her cancer treatment. Much love to her!
Although I will not be able to take part in the seminar because of my low energy, I just wanted to give you a little update.
I am happy to say that I have been able to sit on Skjóni for a few times during the past weeks. Twice I was able to ride a bit myself, and a few times my good friend Erika has led him around our track so that I could be a passenger. She has taken up riding him (she had never done this before) and that is a good way to pay her back for the help she is providing in taking care of our horses. She is very happy to discover who Skjóni is (very different from our other two horses) and learns about herself in the process. For me, being able to feel myself sitting on my horse is a super way to connect to my ‘old self’, recognizing who I am in this world, beyond the temporary but rather dominant experience of the cancer treatment.
I am coping well with most of the side effects of the chemo. It seems my body has adapted a bit and I have found the best practical things that help with it. The hard thing still about the chemo is the mental part. For one, this is a marathon of a process (27 weeks). I have now past the halfway mark (still 8 treatments to go), but in my darker moments it seems such a long way yet. Dark moments are also a side effect of the chemo: apart from normal low moods which I can handle, after each chemo I have about 2 days of real depression. I have visited the medical psychologist, who said that in the deeper depression, (self)talking will not help. So I got oxazepam for those periods, which I consider to be the ‘gypsum on the broken leg’, a temporary means to get through it.
What is helping me greatly, are the guided meditations for deep relaxation and self-healing that I use twice a day. I find that I can feel my actual vitality in the deep relaxation, and every morning I am enjoying a powerful image of my healed/whole self, standing on top of a mountain, feeling stronger and wiser than before.
I wish you and all the attendants a very good seminar!
Update on Robin and Buddy with their float loading from last month. You might remember that he originally had no time at all between the Not Quite Right and his physical reaction and had steadily been increasing that, changing his neural pathways and gaining more and more confidence as Robin listened and took action.
Robins Facebook post: So proud of Buddy. He has not been a fan of our new straight load float. To the point of panic. So I’m assuming some trauma in his past.
Three weeks of playing and our first trip today. Straight in, stood like a trooper and waited to be asked to come out. (And not even a poo in the float)😊
So grateful to have him in my life. Many thanks to @Jenny Pearce for the coaching and new way of thinking.
No stopping us now💃⭐️
Oliver’s coming into his own as a team member of the herd
Darn it I have two lovely videos showing the new herd integrating and it wasn’t as easy as I thought to bring them form the phone to here, so I’ll add them later.
Plus a big deal as in Sam and I cleaned up our energy around being worried about Boots huge and violent stallion energy and how zen master Lucius was standing up to that and the whole energy in the herd changed like a snap of the fingers.
New business clinic – quick update.
