Sometimes there are dreams that can show us parts of ourselves that we didn't know existed within us. Dave contacted me and described a dream he had. He was sitting up against a large tree on this beautiful hill when he suddently heard a sound of a horse galloping nearby. He did not initially see the animal but the sound became louder and more distinct. Suddenly, it appeared a few feet away from him running like the wind this beautiful large brown stallion. It did not scare Dave but left him with a powerful feeling of awe and mystery. Yet, it felt very familar. The horse continued riding up the hill until it was out of sight. Then another stallion galloped by him taking the same path and looking just as regal. Soon there were several more and they all were magnificent. This continued until the thunderous ovation of horses hoofs gradually disappeared.
Dave was just about to leave this experience when out of the corner of his eye he noticed a small colt with long spindly legs that was left behind. As he looked closer at the animal he could see that it was having trouble jumping over this small fence that had suddenly appeared out of nowhere. "Come on little fella, you can do it. Jump over the fence"! You could see the little colt was determined to accomplish this feat and after several attempts he finally succeeded. He looked at Dave with a feeling of gratefulness for his support. He then bowed with a look of humility. Then he continued up the hill to be with the others.
The next thing Dave knew he was suddenly standing in this large castle on a mountain overlooking this beautiful landscape. As he looked from his perch high on the castle he could see this beautiful ocean nearby. The water was of an indigo blue color. The waves gently caressing the earth. Then he heard a familar noise. It started quietly until it reached a tremendous crescendo of sound. In the distance he saw hundreds of wild stallions galloping towards the sea. He had never seen so many beautiful stallions in his life. As he looked out at them he could see and feel the power that they contained. Wave after wave of them appeared. They continued into the sea until the last ones disappeared into the horizon.
When Dave awoke he felt as though he had been enveloped in a state of grace. He knew the power of this dream. He knew that he was the little colt trying to jump the hurdles of his life. He was being shown the way and what was possible. The sheer beauty and magnificence of this horsepower was really who he was becoming and ultimately who he truly is.
