What we believe to be true becomes our truth. Our Geronimo is one of the greatest reminders of this simple law of attraction. Even though the physical signs often showed us his fear of touch, we believed in our hearts the day would come when he would allow us to touch him – all over. And not just for us to touch him, but for him to trust in others too. On Tuesday, July 1, Geronimo’s feet were trimmed by our fabulous farrier and friend, Chuck, for the very first time. Talk about feeling like proud parents – and look at him – lifting up his foot to show off his manicure when Grandma came to visit The Farm a few days later– full of pride indeed.
The Farm Way has taught us that shifting our thoughts from focusing on all the fears of what we do not want to loving thoughts on what we do makes all the difference in attracting a beautiful life. We have our challenging moments and can slide into the ‘slippery down-hill slopes’ just as easily as anyone. This is when we ask for a sign to help us shift our perspective. And then something incredibly magical happens, like Geronimo getting his feet trimmed, and we know what we believe to be true becomes our truth.
Geronimo says Believe BIG! He IS!!!
In the fall of 2011, Mike and I moved to a small farm in Central Illinois where we immediately found ourselves rescuing horses. The rescue was not part of our original plan, but we felt the calling while doing a search for a pair of ponies we did plan on caring for on the farm. Since childhood, my entire extended family and I have been horse owners. Mike and I wanted to continue this tradition. Upon searching the internet for a pair of ponies, we were overwhelmed with the number of horses that needed a rescue and/or a home.
