Gift Horse

Gift horse meaning: ‘Don’t be ungrateful when receiving a gift.’

A couple years ago, I was in flashback hell 24/7. There was no reprieve and I was drowning in it.

I was desperate for guidance and reassurance that I’d be okay, and so I called the ‘spiritual therapist’ I’d turned to a few years prior and once again waited for her to appease me.

We chatted a while and I was so on edge that I hardly heard the messages she was trying to convey.

What did stick out was, “You have to change your morning mantra to’ I want to live with ease,’ and ‘Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.”

Both seemed so simple.. almost too simple.. but everything in me said to oblige.

And so I began to start my mornings with that simple message: ‘I want to live with ease.’

The ‘gift horse’ was perplexing to me. I was torn between the advice of my therapist at the time: to immediately get into an inpatient trauma center, and the idea that it might be even simpler than that.

Gift horse? What the hell does that even mean?

’I am a hot mess... clearly I need serious outside help...’

Fast forward a minute or a month... and the message became clear: my own husband was my gift horse! 💡

This realization was everything.

I stopped assuming that this was ‘too easy’ an answer and started to heed the advice so readily handed to me.

”Everything I needed to heal was right in front of me.“

Everything I needed to heal was right in front of me. I stopped assuming that my husband couldn’t possibly know what’s best for me, and started trusting in The Above. They were telling me to let go and let God, and I was finally ready to oblige.

Fast forward again, and my gift horse and I managed to make healing happen, via books and faith and love, alone.

I‘m not saying it was easy, but it was possible.

”...healing happens in the most unexpected ways..“

I realize now that the main message I needed to receive is that ‘healing happens in the most unexpected ways.’

It won’t look the same for you. That doesn’t mean healing isn’t happening.

Open your heart & your mind. Let the advice & the messages flow into you. If you want it.. if you mean it. You will heal.

Nothing is impossible. There are earthly angels all around you. Have faith and heed their advice.

You are going to be okay. ❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼
