Daily Oracle Card ~ Believe.
Call it Soul, Spirit, or the Authentic Self:
The part of you that accesses fresh ways of seeing and being is also capable of marshalling incredible resources. The most creative aspects of consciousness are the hardest to define and pin down. In trying to form a solid, predictable identity, you lose contact with the vital presence of your true self.
We can fall into the trap of identifying exclusively with images of who we are. Encouraged to practice the fine art of ego building from the day we are born; we learn to deftly slice off shards of what we don’t want to be while refining the qualities we think would be the most pleasing.
Parents, teachers, and peers are the first critics we encounter; over time, we internalize their aesthetics, trying to live up to their expectations. These facades we don for the sake of fitting in become just that facades.
Learning to separate ourselves from the camouflage to fit in we wear, and the camouflage we expect others to wear is the challenge of a lifetime. In this effort, horses can be effective teachers. They’re not only attracted to authenticity, but they can also help people shift out of ego orientation into an experience of pure presence. Aligning yourself with the Authentic you, free from facades, is a gift only you can give to yourself. Way of the Horse Oracles
