Cantering on top of the world
One sunny day, Talisman and I ventured up the top of the hill to do a short fitness session, cantering ‘on top of the world’ amongst the glorious Welsh hilltops. Perfection was all around, the views, the going and the horse, naturally!
Affirmations and how to change your life
I have been using affirmations since I was a teenager, for just about everything in my life – affirmations for my health and well-being, to create the life I want as well as influence the weather! They are an extremely effective tool for personal transformation as they replace the old, unhelpful thoughts and beliefs that keep us ‘stuck’ in repeating experiences with new new ones which enable us to be, have and do what we truly want. As I have said before, thought has energy so be careful what you think! I share examples of what’s worked for me, explain how to create effective affirmations and also provide an explanation as to why they work. Powerful stuff!
Heavenly Welsh landscape
One perfect summer’s evening, I set off to meet a friend for supper at a village in a hidden valley some 30 minutes away. Having not been there before, I was relying on sat nav and, as a back-up, a good old fashioned map. The former failed on account of limited signal and the latter wasn’t much use with a multitude of tiny ambiguous lanes. Signposts were few and far between and various country hazards played their part too. I got there in the end despite several ‘errors of course’! However, the scenery was utterly spectacular and I wanted to share it with you. So come drive with me on an abridged version of my journey….
Training your instinct
We are born fully conscious of our instinct but for most of us, it’s lost through education which trains us to think logically. Yet, instinct is the best ‘sat nav’ we have in life. So how do we re-discover it and hear it over the noise of life and how do we train it to be a powerful guidance mechanism for us?
Fanny Adams was a beloved cat who is no longer but lives on in the current reincarnation who is Bryngwyn. She gave a lovely message to a friend of mine who could talk to animals which enhanced my relationship with her. I wrote this poem in her honour.
Narrating your life
Contrary to popular belief, you are not bonkers if you talk to yourself! I have been doing it for years. Narrating your experience helps you notice what you think about yourself, especially through your reaction to people and situations. And if you don’t like what you think, you can change it. Thought comes before belief, which comes before action!
The power of thought
I have learned that thought has energy, so it can be put to good use for each of us and the world around us. The flip-side is that we have to be mindful of all our thoughts including the ones which aren’t helpful in creating the life we would like. Like any new skill you want to develop, practise makes perfect and I explain how I have practised this over the years.
Muck heap meditation
Shovelling the muck up on the heap each morning is my least favourite yard job. So, I have changed how I think about it and turned it into a useful exercise which could even be called a ‘meditation’. You don’t have to be sitting down to meditate! In my view, life is a meditation.
Talking to your food
I’ve always thought carefully about food and nutrition, partly as a means to good health and partly because serious sport requires serious fuel. For me, communing with my food before eating is a way of amplifying the nutritional benefits in a quantum way. It’s conscious eating and here’s how I do it…
What is spirituality?
This is a very big question. For me, spirituality is on a spectrum from practical applications in every day life to full blown esoteric. I attempt to explain in under two minutes. Lots more bite-size videos to follow on how it works in my life and ways to incorporate it into yours.
‘Madame La Piplette’ (Pip) has her freedom for the first time in 10 days due to arctic weather and makes the most of the white stuff in the turn out arena with some impressive acrobatics!
Interview with Ingrid Auer
I have never been one for convention! In this interview I talk about the things I hold dear in life, my guiding philosophies and spiritual perspective. Are you sitting down?
Landscape of the Soul
Living in the midst of exquisite landscape is like a meditation at times, prompting a profound connection with all that there is.
A bird in the hand…
Pesky pheasants cause havoc for me and the horses, so I hatched a plan to remove them from my land. Scary!
Altercation with the Field Shelter
I took the plunge and bought a field shelter with the idea of having the horses out 24/7 for a few months of the year and creating less work for me. It’s mobile (sort of) which means I can drag it around with the car. A great plan but why is it that few things in life as are as straightforward as they seem?
