I have always loved horses, and I have always felt a special connection to them. I want to help others to have a positive relationship with their horses, however, I had no formal training myself.
There is one trainer, in particular, for whom I have the utmost respect. I had the chance to meet him in 2007 and ride with him for 3 days. He and his wife invited my husband (Patrick) and I to his home in Colorado to see his training facility. Pat and I took our 2 weeks vacation, last summer, and we drove the 3 days it took to get from Ontario, Canada to Parachute, Colorado.
I remember telling Pat, when we arrived in Colorado, that it felt like “coming home” for me to be there. We had the opportunity to sit in on some meetings between the trainer and that years group of students. I leaned over to Pat, during one of these meetings, and whispered in his ear that I would be sitting where they were in one years time. He smiled at me in sort of a “sure dear” way. I had no plan or strategy for how all of this was going to happen. We had the horses yet no truck or trailer to haul them, we both had jobs which we loved and did not want to quit, let alone the $26,000 it was going to cost to live in Colorado for one year and pay for the program. We were not heavily in debt, yet we certainly did not have that kind of cash just lying around.
We had a great time in Colorado that summer, and during the entire trip home my mind was consumed with the thought that I would be back in one year to take this training program.
Once we got home “things” started to happen. We talked with Pats’ parents, not to borrow money, yet to “bounce” this idea off of them to see if they might have any suggestions. There were times that doubt tried to creep into my mind and sabotage my faith, especially when my Mother-in-law asked me about our jobs and how could we quit our jobs to do this and come back home in 7 months with no job and 7 months worth of bills to pay. Despite all of these “road blocks”, I would not let them distract me from my goal. I knew like I knew like I knew that it was happening even though I could not see it then.
I created a vision “wall” on the ceiling above my bed with photographs of all the things I wanted; the truck, the trailer, photos of Colorado during our trip with a picture of me riding one of my horses pinned on top, so I could remember the feeling of being there, the 2 horses we would take to Colorado, and a cheque in the amount of what we needed to make this happen.
The law of attraction took over and things started to happen. Within one month we had purchased a house and some land and had extra money left over to pay for the tuition for the program and to pay for 7 months worth of bills while we were away. Shortly after that we had a new truck and a trailer. Both of our employers said we would have our jobs back when we came home after 7 months.
I live my life, now, by this law of attraction. The newest photograph on my vision “ceiling” is one of our new indoor arena with a photo of me riding one of my horses, pinned on top. It is already on its way… I know like I know like I know!!!! I am so grateful for all that is happening in my life, and even more so for having discovered The Secret!!
Long story longer, we leave for Colorado in 3 weeks to fulfill a dream that some were pretty sure would take much longer to happen… guess they haven’t discovered the power of the Secret yet.
