After my encounter with Piggy Jim, I sat under the awning and waited to see who would approach me. This pasture is often filled with horses recovering from the neglect of previous owners. I had come out to my friends’ pasture to do energetic healing, to heal others.
A few minutes of waiting, and I found myself surrounded by two miniature spotted donkeys.
Hey, I said, What do you need from me?
No, Pebbles said, What do you need from us?
These two are the keepers of the pasture. The deep peace of a pasture embodied in two donkeys.
I need peace. I said.
You got it. Tallula said.
It’s always available to you. Pebbles said. Just go like this.
I felt her energy settle and become quiet. The little canvas awning became a sanctuary. I felt myself quiet down and become soft in their presence. My back relaxed. I was soft and smooth.
This peace is part of you, Pebbles said. It is your nature.
I looked Pebbles in the eye. Her gaze was soft and knowing.
You’re a good person, you know? She said.
I started to cry. I felt like somebody truly saw me, and knew what I needed to hear.
Tallula looked at me. She sighed. It was a sigh of wisdom, contentment, knowing.
Do not draw a picture of black and white, good and evil. She said. Instead think of a path towards resolution. We are all working towards resolving what’s out of balance. The people who are cruel, they are out of balance. They will resolve towards balance. That’s the way it works.
Yes said Pebbles.
The donkeys stayed with me the rest of the morning, I’d talk with a horse, and bring in healing energy and then the mini-donkeys would step in and take my stress away.
At the end of the morning, I left the pasture with a profound sense of peace thanks to two little donkeys.
I told Amy Jo that she should start a website called therapyasses.com and put these two on it, and have them give out advice to the world. Our world needs more therapy asses.
