1. The power of self-discovery.
2. Finding answers within.
3. How a lost horse’s journey can inspire us.
In life, we often find ourselves facing challenges and uncertainties. It’s natural to seek answers and resolutions, but what if the key to these solutions lies within us?
In this episode I talk about the remarkable story concerning a young man called Milton Erickson, who later became a famous hypnotherapist.
Milton grew up on a farm, and one day a horse walked into their farmyard. No-one, including Milton knew who owned the horse, or where it had come from. His father instructed Milton to return the horse to its owner.
Milton Erickson was unclear exactly how to do this, but led the horse out onto the road. After looking both ways, it set off on a slow pace and Milton followed.
A short while later the horse stopped to graze, but Milton drew its attention back to the road. This happened time and time again; it stopping to graze and Milton drawing its attention back to the road.
Eventually, and after many miles later, the horse walked into a farmyard Milton had never visited before.
The farmer was present, realised it was his horse, and after thanking Milton asked him where he had found it. Milton explained that it had wandered into their farmyard many miles away.
The farmer was amazed at this and asked Milton how he knew where to bring the horse.
Milton thought for a moment before replying, “I didn’t know, but the horse knew. All I had to do was keep its focus on the road”.
I truly believe we all have the answers we need within us, an ‘inner wisdom’ if you like, and if we ‘stay on our road’, it reveals this wisdom to us.
I also believe it is this ‘not’ staying on the road that causes such confusion, anxiety, stress and procrastination too. After all, it’s pretty easy to become distracted and lose our way, without even realising we have done so.
As a counsellor, hypnotherapist and life coach, it is my job to help you ‘stay on the road’, so you find your answers too. When we have our answers, even though it may still be difficult to act on them, we at least have a direction to take, a road map, or a compass bearing.
Sometimes, we all need a helping hand to discover what we know.
If this resonates with you, and you are feeling you have ‘lost your way’ or are ‘off track’, perhaps you would benefit with a helping hand to get you back on the right path, or even a new path! This can be with mindset, a bad habit, an emotional issue, stress, anxiety, a need to start something or stop something (often it can be a little of both), a limiting belief, and more.
I am reminded of a quote here that goes, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”.
You know, we could explore this cave together, with torches to ‘shine a light’ on what is stopping you, address it, so you can then move forward with confidence, free from it.
What would that be like?
