Cindy’s Story ~ or pawns in the game of life.
I had been looking through Gumtree in the horses for sale section, even though I had no intention of getting a horse. I came across some local horses that were part Clydesdale (my favorite breed) and wrote down the number. I kept the number in my wallet for 3 months.
My Clydesdale mare had died a while ago and I missed the smell of a horse so badly. I have spent most of my life with horses and have been so happy because of this.
I eventually got around to calling the number, wouldn’t hurt to look I thought.
Probably already been sold anyway.
When I got there I was taken with the fillies but didn’t give the skinny ugly mare a decent look.
Sanity prevailed and I went home .
I had no facilities and I was too old to take on young, unhandled, big horses.
A month later I was asked to buy Cindy as the owner had hit a very rough spot in her life.
I did, so the skinny, ugly , horse came home with me.
We poured lots of food and care into Cindy and her health gradually improved.
She got bigger and bigger, and the foal inside her was enjoying the good food too..
He was well overdue but nature seemed to know he needed more nurture, ….
He arrived looking like a clydesdale, I was thrilled,!
He was a little bit weak in the legs but again, time, and more nutritious food into Cindy helped him grow, and grow,,….and grow.
I had always felt that Shiloh was supposed to be part of what our Vortex Healing Centre was morphing into, and so too the female peacock that arrived and stayed.
Cindy nourished Shiloh beautifully and he has grown into the most stunning looking horse that I have seen.
After 10 months I weaned him off Cindy’s milk and as he was getting bigger and stronger and starting to flex his muscles, he got gelded too.
Cindy, for the first time in 7 years was not pregnant or feeding,
She got her figure back, started to enjoy life again and looked for something that was missing, literally, she took herself out of the paddock, and went bush for a week.
She left Shiloh and looked for what was missing.
She has been a tough survivor, so I wasn;t worried about her.
She would come home when she was ready.
Well she didn’t, someone had seen her in a paddock and shut the gate, so whoever owned her could find her .
After a week I finally did, and bought her back home, but to a different paddock, with better fences.
I knew that I couldn’t cope with the two horses in different paddocks, but Cindy, being Cindy would just get out again.
After careful thought and many tears, I listed her on Gumtree, and had quite a few responses.
She behaved atrociously the first time someone looked at her, and left one of them very sore.
Hmmm I guess she doesn’t want to leave, but more were coming the next day. I warned them she may not be what they want.
When the second lot of people rang I knew this is where Cindy should go but the others rang first, hmmm what a dilemma, I tossed and turned all night, and woke up knowing something was up,
Cindy was a different horse, the one that I had grown very fond of, she behaved well and bonded immediately with the young girl who was to be her new owner.
She looked at me and said to my understanding, “this is what should have happened, I went looking for my new life as I knew our time was done, I gave you my son, as he has a role in your life, I am now free to find mine.”
She then turned and snuggled into the young girls arms and I knew she wanted this. She knew exactly what was going on and I do believe she chose these people for her fore ever home.
As I wipe my tears writing this, I figured that yes, I am just a Pawn in the game of Life!

Mini mindfulness #129
Finding calm in the middle of chaos
Welcome to the Vortex Healing Centre, our monthly meditation.
Today is a pre-recording, so
Sit back and relax.
Make yourself comfortable and know that this is the end of the year 2017 an incredible year of enormous growth and physical changes in our bodies emotional changes spiritual changes.
You name it we’ve been through the mill this year.
The energies have finally relaxed so,
I want you to take a deep breath in connecting to the centre of the Earth, drawing it in and bringing it up to your higher heart.
Totally expanding the top of your chest,
three deep breaths from the centre of the Earth.
You take 3 deep breaths from the centre of the Universe, the galactic centre is still open from the summer solstice of the Universe. The black hole is directly above the Vortex Healing Centre. It just adds a little bit more to the high energy that’s already here.
Drawing down these beautiful energies from our galactic sun, our galactic stargate.
The bottom of the southern cross, the most identifying feature in the souther sky.
Then we’ll 3 deep combined breaths from the centre of the earth and the centre of the Universe allowing the energies of the Mother and the Father to merge in our higher heart and as these energies come together, they become the essence of us, our own spiritual essence. We are the third part of the trinity.
Father, Mother, Son, Father, Mother, Daughter.
As you take these breaths, you’ll feel the warmth flooding through your body.
Also as our own energies are activated, we draw on the energies of our higher selves the greater part of us that isn’t incarnate.
However, it now flows freely into us with all of the releasing we’ve done over the years.
At the moment, the energy is still and it’s a blessing, the intensity of the past few days have been difficult to handle.
I know I’ve had a huge activation in my higher heart.
And I was so sensitive. Very difficult to do a thousand things. But now we have a few days to relax before the new begins. And now I would ask you to look back on the changes you have made in your life.
The opportunities that have come your way.
Ask yourself how have I changed?
Because this question we need to know the answer to, to go forward in 2018.
And 2018 holds the master vibration # 11.
So this is a mastering, manifestation, we won’t get a better chance to build what we want in our lives, so for some guidance we will go to the City of Light again.
Just mentally take yourself to the City of Light.
Your guides and Quan Yin and many of the masters are there and seek guidance or ask one of them to guide you.
I’ll call for you in a while.
3 min silence.
It’s time now to bring yourselves back to the Fountain in the City of Light.
Just allow all the water and the rainbows to drift slowly over you to cleanse and clear.
Know that you can always come here.
You can always ask for guidance with any of the beings that are here.
Now I ask you to take some nice deep combined breaths from the centre of the Earth and the Centre of the Universe, bringing you back to right here right now.
Ready to start the New Year and ready to let all of this pass before us, so that we start clear, clean and refreshed, 2018, the year of Master Manifesting.
So keep breathing deeply until you’re fully back, fully aware and awake.
If you enjoyed this meditation, please leave a comment and let us know what it meant for you.
Soul Family Newsletter:
What is enlightenment today?
For so long, thousands of years actually, people believe enlightenment was something that was not really attainable. Only the buddha’s and Christ’s of this world could attain it.
Or it somehow accidentally or magically happened after decades of mediation.
But today, we know better.
The entire planet has grown and is vibrating at a much higher level than ever before and we have even more opportunities than ever before to connect with our highest, most infinite self.
And that to me is the essence of enlightenment.
I call it lucid awakening.
My sifu for qi gong always told me that our “real life” was in our dreams, when we can fly, jump over tall buildings in a single bound, breathe underwater, or travel to the far corners of the universe, and that this thing that we call being awake was actually our conscious mind in it’s limited state.
I’ve been reflecting on those thoughts for over 14 years now since I first heard them.
And the most recent 2 day silent meditation we did here, we completely changed up the formula. Instead of doing an exponential form of vipassanna meditation in 3 days instead of 10, we did what I now call 2 days of lucid awakening.
To me that means allowing the power and connectedness of your infinite self to fully engage and awaken your limited human self.
Your limited human self?
Yes, we can all understand the physical limitations of our bodies, and appreciating those limitations more and more with every passing year, and we can understand the mental limitations of forgetting things or not understanding the immensity of what infinite means.
It’s clear that our physical bodies are only here temporarily.
But your infinite self is here for the joy ride to experience what limited feels like.
To experience what love feels like.
To experience what pain feels like.
It’s our choice to decide how intense we would like these experiences and which ones we’d like to focus on now.
And I tell you, it’s our choice to decide how often we choose to feel our unlimited infinite self and how often we choose to feel the weight and burden of the whole world on our shoulders.
It’s actually quite a simple process, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
And it all starts with the knowingness that it’s even possible.
That not only is it possible but it’s highly likely that you can connect more and more often to your infinite self and feel the lightness and extreme joy where you infinite self lives (which is and has always been within you.)
So, as much as I’ve been a world traveller from a young age and enjoy visiting many sacred places around the planet, the true essence of who we are and what we are can only be found when we go deep inside.
Just one moment can transform your life forever.
Just one awknowgement of our true nature as this infinite powerful, beautiful being who’s travelled through the illusion of time and space to be right here, right now.
For this life is the illusion, the dream state.
The illusion that we aren’t enough.
The illusion that we aren’t already enlightened.
The illusion that we can’t BE without “work being done us” or without some guru teaches us.
The massive energies that seem to flow at this time of year are heightened by the fact that Christmas and the holidays can an emotional time of year.
The energetic floodgates from the Universe are in full flow.
We’ll be honoring those energies this week with a recording.
The actual summer solstice will be at 3:28 am on the 22nd of Dec 2017
Thursday 21st Dec 2017 @11:58 am in New York.
Also, we’re thrilled to have Steph Freeman here to conduct a very special mandala workshop weekend here before she heads back to the Mainland. It’s a fabulous way to boost your creativity in everything you do in the New Year.
And we’ve extended the Early Bird price of $299 including all meals and shared uplodging .
This looks to be an epic event! Please let me know if you can make it. We need to finalize #’s soon.
And, we’ve been kicking around some new ideas for the essences and we’re introducing a new essence for dogs called “PAWS: K9 Stress Relief Therapy”. This came about because Blaze our beautiful blue healer cross hates thunderstorms. It’s as tough as nails if he’s chasing a wallaby but come thunder and lightening he’s crazy scared.
And poor little Cleo, our miniature Shiatzu Malteze dog hates getting her hair cut (a perpetual job of trying to keep the buzzies at bay) and tremples the minute she sees scissors in my hand.
So we’ve been experimenting with ways to help our 4 legged friends just like the AWE helps our soul family.
Stay tuned for more updates.
We haven’t released it yet, as we’re still in the testing phase.
Love to all of our Soul Family and their furry friends,
Blon & Grandmother Sue
