»When the rhythms of our body-mind are in sync with nature’s rhythms, when we are living in harmony with life, we are living in the state of grace.«

The meaning of Grace

The term “Grace” can have many different meanings and I would like to share what it means to me for my work with “The Grace Approach”.

Often we work hard at trying to manifest something in our lives when all we need to do is relax, and let things happen. Trying implies effort, but if what we want to enter the flow of life (the way of grace), it is more about allowing things to happen and unfold. If we want to live in service to our soul and as part of  higher purpose, then we need to trust that all that is meant to be on our path is already making its way to us and will come in its own time. A more effective way—and easier by far—is to acknowledge your desire, set the intention, and then just let go: let come what may. This is the way of grace.

For us humans, it is often difficult to enter this flow due to blockages such as suppressed feelings, limiting beliefs and separation from our authentic selves. We can, however, find the way of grace by becoming more self-aware and through personal development.

Horses can lead and guide us on this path, since they are intimately connected with their true nature and spend most of their time in a natural state of being. They accept each moment as it is and quite naturally live in the flow of grace. With incredible generosity and presence, they support us in rediscovering the true essence of ourselves.

It was my beautiful black mare named Grace, who inspired me to do this work. She is the horse in the picture above. Her affectionate nature touched me deeply in my heart and her generous and caring character motivated me to encounter others with exactly those qualities. Together with a deep sense of optimism that I carry within me, I create, together with the animals, a space in which the way of grace can emerge.
