"Why is it so important to pay attention to signs? Because signs give us the feeling of being supported, encouraged, nurtured, cherished and loved. And those feelings awaken greater health."
~ Heidi DuPree, Awaken Your Greater Health: How Energy Medicine Opens the Way to Healing
"The universe is always speaking to us...Sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, to look around, and to believe in something else, something more." ~ Nancy Thayer, Belonging
I haven't ridden a horse since my honeymoon 35 years ago. The horses at Shenandoah National Park where we honeymooned were super calm and plodded slowly and steadily along the trail. It was a wonderful, relaxing experience that I wanted to re-create on our vacation to southwest Virginia in the year of the horse 2014. Unfortunately, the experiences could not have been more different!
For one thing, the horses for our re-creation were spirited. Don't let the smile on my face in the picture below fool you. Within minutes of getting on my horse, I was terrified! My horse wanted to trot past the others and get first in line while I hung on for dear life. For another, our trail guide took us down steep ravines. It took every ounce of my strength to push back in the saddle to keep from tumbling forward and off the horse going down hill. I didn't want to spook my horse, but when my arms turned to jelly and started shaking I couldn't help but hyperventilate in panic.
What got me through this experience was silently praying and invoking help, and then seeing the signs that my prayers were being answered. As the line of horses made their way through a patch of woods, I noticed a huge white feather on the ground. Feathers are a spiritual symbol of angels and it is thought that when you see a feather, angels are near. My husband knows this as well, and as he passed by the feather behind me, knowing how distressed I was he called out, "Did you see that feather?!" Yes I had, and was grateful for the reassurance.
When our horse riding experience had concluded, with much relief I dismounted. Our trail guide texted me the picture she had snapped of us on our horses. As I flipped my phone open to see the picture, the time was 3:33. I gasped, knowing this is another amazing sign. The numbers 333 indicate the presence of ascended masters. No matter how frightened I had been, I knew that I had been watched over and protected throughout the horse riding experience.
