Ever wonder if your intentions or thoughts actually make something happen?
I didn't until one Sunday afternoon on a beautiful horse ranch in California.
My Equus Coaching class was starting our final afternoon session of an intensive 4-day training. One of the facilitators asked me to get a horse named Desperado for our next round pen coaching session. I had heard about a labyrinth in the back of one of the pastures so I asked, "hey, can I run back real quick and take a peek at the labyrinth?”
Running short on time the facilitator said "not now, but I promise we can see it after we finish our day.” Satisfied, I went to catch Desperado.
As I entered the large pasture, I couldn't see him anywhere. I walked deeper and deeper into the pasture and lo and behold Desperado was standing smack in the center of the labyrinth!
No kidding. I'm not making this up. I was so happy that my friend and fellow classmate, Jenny, was there to witness this magic.
Coincidence? Or, did my intention, my energy and desire to see the labyrinth have anything to do with where Desperado wandered to in that moment?
I choose to believe in my own magic!
