The dream: “I had a little baby with me. Wanting to show her the beauty of a small glen and went to sit on the banks of a pond. I put her down, leaning her against the embankment with the water lapping against her. She was in discomfort (getting wet), feeling scared and uncontained… I found myself elsewhere… I suddenly realized I had left the baby unattended. I was fearful she might have drowned. I returned to the pond, but she was nowhere to be seen. I gazed into the water; the shape of her head barely visible. It was shallow enough for me to grasp her. I struggled to pull her out. Panic was mounting. I laid her down, giving her mouth-mouth resuscitation, having chosen breath to enliven her rather than pumping her heart. Eventually she started coughing and I turned her on her side to drain the water. I wrapped her in a towel and held her close to me, relieved she was alive. I looked up and saw a white horse grazing in the bushes next to the pond. It looked up, gazing curiously at us. I thought what a special moment to be visited by such a beautiful animal.”
During the workshop we took turns viewing each other as a resource. As I was practicing seeing another as a resource, I was aware of what was happening in the ‘field’ around us… a big white mare was walking directly towards us. In the context of my dream, the approaching horse became a reminder that no-one person is the resource for others on their own, but that the whole ‘field’ supports them. When I was my turn to be the resource, the white horse walked right up to me and gently nuzzled me as if to affirm the message: We are embedded in the field around us and the whole field supports us.
During some ‘free play’ with the horse I realised that the different way in which they interacted with us, as constellated in the field, could be seen as a reflection of each person’s inner world. Horses are acutely sensitive to the resonance within the ‘field’.
