How to Make a Dream Come True by Kirsten Harris
I have been asked by someone to say what this image means to me, so here goes …
The girl on the ground is daring to dream, she leans on the magic dandelion clock, the wish machine, that will give her dreams wings. She barely knows that she is supported by the spine of the dandelion clock, that magic surrounds her, that she is even allowed to dream, let alone have her dream come true. She is wistful and longing. Alone and shy. She is the ‘fairy’ child that stays back in her back, the intuitive, the sensitive who loves animals with all her heart. She doesn’t know yet that her quiet seed wishes are being heard and making her strong. She is the dreamer who creates the future.
Plucking courage she breathes out, sending her wish into the future and miraculously she finds herself magically transported to the top of the dandelion clock. She never thought she would get this far. Her focus and direction have taken her forwards and upwards, closer to making her dreams come true. She stands tall and proud and waits. Feet on the ground, head in the air, heart open. Timing has it’s own magic and she is being taught lessons on divine timing.
She watches the horses go by, connecting with their rhythm and beauty, their presence and spatial awareness. She sees the energy of the horse projects into a vast spatial field and she trains her mind to be open and aware. She learns to be in balance in herself before she sits astride for only then will she poised with the horses balance. She wants to be free, taken forward in the upward flow of horse power, connecting via the horses to the great mystery, free of her fears and limitations.
She understands she needs to trust herself and trust her horse, She plucks up courage and ‘jumps’, a leap of faith, she may fail and fall and end up back on the ground many times or she may fly, up and up and up. There are no guarantees, just her tenacity, her courage, her trust, her ability to believe, her love of horses. There is time, plenty of time, she develops great patience.
And then the miracle happens, she is truly poised, riding light, following the floating feeling. Up up up, the horse lifts her and they become one. Two free spirits sharing energy in an understanding of truth, being shown the spirit and nature of all things.
And this is why she dared to dream and this is why she was patient and trusted and this is how to make a dream come true …. Keep wishing my friends, the horses are our honest teachers.
