When I first started, it was the natural expression of becoming an EGCM® certified coach to name my business A Horse and A Wizard. As I integrated my NeuroIntegration practice, I kept the name. My business is now evolving as I become more resonant with my soul-aligned purpose and I am rebranding as Wizards Ventures, LLC.
To give you some background:
When the angels knock, I can either react or respond. I wish I could say I took the high road most of my life, and responded. Instead, reaction was probably more accurate. For the last few years, it has been somewhat clear that I have a destiny to be a messenger. The struggle has been for what. I don’t find myself drawn to extreme causes, mostly because I have a gentle heart. Several years ago, I reluctantly released a book where I served as a messenger for essential oils. I acted as an interpreter to allow them to express how they might be used as the emotional spiritual level, not primarily at the physical level. I use reluctantly because at that time, I had moved on from my sideline business where I sold adjuncts to essential oils and returned to the corporate world.
In September, 2008, unbeknownst to me, a new journey was being introduced into my life. I did a weekend workshop with Melisa Pearce and was exposed to the healing heart of horses. How I got to the workshop, I don’t recall, and yet I am clear that it was an act of what I call angelic intervention. I recall I found out about it just before it happened, signed up and was in the chair before I knew it. Shortly after that workshop, Melisa launched the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® program. At that time, I nearly joined however, my own guidance steered me in another direction – mostly because I wasn’t quite ready for the experience.
In June of 2011, an email invite crossed my desk, something to the effect of creating a new career doing healing work with horses. If I was interested, then call in and listen to Melisa’s presentation. I did, and started in the program with the July 2011 cohort. Prior to the program, my exposure to horses was minimal. I had what I call an admiration for them, however, unlike many of my cohort, I couldn’t say I was in love with them. I hadn’t really had those many up-close and personal experiences of pouring my heart out to a favored companion throughout the travails of my growing life. The one thing that I was immediately taken with was the initiation into the world of horse as I learned to halter Shadow. How he held space for me and gently made himself available to me as I fumbled with getting the halter on – as if he was saying “ah, I have another newbie to train.”
Nearly two years later, I have completed the EGC program, and have learned much about the giving nature of Equus. Almost immediately after starting the program the name of my business “A Horse and a Wizard” was intuitively presented to me. Throughout the program, I had no idea how this would all come together – it really boiled down to “trust the process.” In May of 2012, I began to get intuitive messages from a horse here and there. I might be in their presence, or might be at home, and a thought would come to me from one of them. I wouldn’t classify it as an animal communicator type of message where there is a dialog back and forth, more of what I think of as a universal message that could apply to the human condition. I began to collect them into a book that will come out as the Song of Equus. I intend to have multiple volumes that I will publish as e-books, and potentially, someday collect them into a paper book. The first volume contains messages from the horses I have met in the EGC program. I anticipate that other horses will beam me their messages when the time is right.
As the program neared its end, I was introduced to a new possibility, that of doing Neuro Integration ON horses. I got certified in the human version of Neuro Integration (NI) in March of 2013, and have learned to do the basic integration on horses.
Since then, I am beginning to find that my form of business is taking its own unique flow. I talk about my experience with horses by promoting the information in Songs of Equus; I offer individual NI sessions; provide phone coaching; and combine the methodologies of EGC and NI to offer NI WITH horses. Some powerful work has been unfolding with the combination of the two.
