Experience the Connected Flow
What is Connected Flow™ ? It is our ability to bring the compassionate power of creation that pulses through nature all around us, through our hands into the energetic tissues of the animals we love. It allows us to “read” the animal’s tissues, and feel the tissues energetic and physical restrictions. It lets us sense where to move our hands, and what to do when we are at the right spots. It gives us information to help you horse on a physical, emotional and soul level. Combining Connected Flow with bodywork skill and knowledge makes for Powerful Work! And further, combining Connected Flow with metaphysical healing arts, like Shamanism or telepathic animal communication, we can bring profound changes to the animal, and to the animal’s caregiver as well.
All great body workers have this power in their hands – and you do too – but you may not yet realize it. Merging with nature is as natural as being alive. The connection to nature is as simple as your breath, bringing fresh air into you and letting the old air out. Each drink of water is bringing fresh water into you. Making it part of you. Connecting with it as intimately as possible, molecule to molecule. And since molecules themselves are composed of things so small they can be described by physicists according to their energetic properties, then we are merging with the energy of nature around us, simply by being here on this magnificent planet!
Would you like to experience that connection right now? Allow me to take you on a short Journey to Spirit through your imagination into a place in nature that you know and love. I have attached a recording that will allow you to enter your place in nature, and experience in a new dimension – the dimension of the Connected Flow.
Take a moment now to choose one place in nature that you really love, and that you can remember pretty well.
Maybe a soft beach with crabs dancing across the sand. An old growth forest, with specked light dancing on the moss under your feet. A rippling river with splashing trout snapping up a hatch of flies. The fantastic tree canopying your own back yard. Or even your sweet little flower garden that you tend in the morning, sipping coffee and welcoming the fresh new day.
Your sacred place in nature loves you too. You really are connected. The spirits of that place will be your guides for bringing the Connected Flow into your hands. The secret to this work is simple - your imagination remembers everything about the place, and will bring it back to your mind fresh and alive. And as you allow this to happen, and you connect with the place spiritually, the Spirits of that place will use your imaginative faculties to share with you even more - things that you don't remember, but the Spirits would like you to understand. This is how the Spirit Journeyworks.
Here is a description of what we are doing in the recording.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now take a moment and remember a beautiful place in nature you love. I will drum for you, creating a rhythm that will let your brain relax, as you experience that place in your imagination with no reservations, focusing on one sensory experience at a time.
Be in that place, and let it fill your imagination with all the smells, sounds and visions it evokes. Breath it in. Let it flow through you - into your heart.
Look around. What do you see?
Shift your attention to listening. What do you hear?
Touch with your hands, and feel with your skin.
Focus on smelling and tasting.
Expand all your senses to take it all in. Ask the energy of this place fill to your heart and flow through your body. Concentrate the Flow in your hands. Cup your hands together and see a ball of white light formed between them.
You are prepared for the touch. Try it now, gently and lightly, place you hands on your legs and feel the energy.
Now thank that beautiful place for its love, and allow yourself to settle back into your ordinary mind, back into your bones.
How was that? Delicious? You have just experienced a dimension of nature that is very real, and that you can access at anytime, simply by turning all your intention to the task and allowing the place to flow through you. I personally find it helpful to choose one particular feature in the place to connect with - the ocean waves as they lap into the sand, or a tree with spreading branches and deep roots.
I have found that regardless of a persons religion or beliefs, when we choose to align with the Connected Flow it will surge through us. Our innate divinity aligns with the creative life force of the universe. I use this Spirit journey to set the intention for this connection. You may prefer a different meditation or prayer. There are many paths to the divine.
Holding the intention for the Connected Flow takes some practice. We need to learn to stay connected, and at the same time be 100% present in the ordinary world. Horses demand our attention in so many levels. Just remember you are a multi dimensional being, engaging in a healing practice as ancient as our humankind. This is your birthright, because you are a living, breathing and loving being.
