Horse spirit

My dear friend Irene left a comment on my recent horse encounter wondering what they had to teach me. I didn’t even think of it at first, but after reading her comment, I knew it was a special sign to see these wild beauties, and being allowed to get so close to them. I decided to post another picture of a prior encounter, and this picture reminds me of a special day. This one was on the way up to Virginia City where the horses roam freely and often cross over the road.

The signs are strong right now, or maybe I’m even more in tune with accepting this guidance. I still haven’t talked to Mom and she is not answering the phone. She has locked herself in and I’m hoping attempts to attain a key somehow have been successful to grant access to her apartment if needed. It might also be the very reason she doesn’t feel like talking to me and I wish she would understand that it is not because anyone wants to get into her business, but because everybody is worried about her. She has fallen before and laid there for hours without help, you would think she understands. Sadly not so, and while I’m worried and left work early yesterday out of lack of concentration and my mind being elsewhere, I know that some things are out of my control. Her choices and the decisions she makes are one of them.

But here is the so said picture of the beautiful wild horses with their spiritual meaning.

Horse: You’re about to embark on an unexpected adventure and will have to move very quickly once’s it’s initiated. It’s time to free yourself from those physically and emotionally constricting aspects of your life. You need to call upon reserves of stamina and strength to get you through this ordeal. You’re much more powerful than you think you are. This situation requires strong warrior energy, balanced with sensitivity, patience, and compassion. Teamwork with your family, friends, or community is important right now.

Could this message be any clearer? Wow….time to wear the warrior bonnet once more and channel my inner warrior.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. That guidance was very clear, dear Rhapsody. Now you know, what to do and can prepare yourself fast. It was the first, I thought about, when I saw the other post with your wild horses, why I also told you this.
    Wish you all good luck, dear friend ❤
