The meaning of Grace

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

So 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, yet 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 our life in service to our soul and  as part of the higher will, then all that is meant to be on our path it 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 the 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 the separation of our authentic selves. We can, however, find this the way of grace by becoming more aware of ourselves 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 state of being. They accept each moment as it is and quite naturally life 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.
