I was born in Scotland, where I had regular riding lessons as a child, rode friends ponies, and worked at a Welsh Cob stud farm. I bought my first horse in my early 20's, and switched to Western riding after attaining my BHS Stage 3. I rode Western for 15 years, including organising shows and clinics, teaching, and competing, then worked in the US as apprentice / assistant to a well known clinician for 2 years. From here I got more interested in the biomechanics of the horse and rider, Feldenkrais (body awareness through movement), and the Tellington Method, which has to be the softest most considerate way of working with horses on the ground that I have experienced.
I always had a yearning to understand animals better, and be able to 'talk' to them. Learning Reiki helped start opening me up to energetic ways of working, and I did go on a couple of 'animal communication' workshops but didn't feel much different afterwards. I also desperately wanted to be able to meditate but it didn't seem to happen for me.
My husband and I emigrated from Scotland to New Zealand in September 2005, and in 2013 a major change happened when a friend invited me to her meditation group. Suffice to say that the group energy changed everything for me and I haven't looked back!
Over the next couple of years I felt as if I had been fast tracked on some spiritual journey. It seemed like every possible experience was being thrown at me, checking to see if I could feel, articulate, and cope with different things. I was in a very safe, supportive environment, and never felt any fear, but instead relished the adventure, sucked in the new information, and kept asking for more! ('Bring it on' was a common mantra, lol.) I learned how to protect myself, how to connect with different levels of Spirit, and, most importantly how to pay attention to my intuition.
