I am so blessed to be able to share my perceptions with the Tramanto Connects community and with all of you!!
Savior, my beloved horse, it is almost one year since you crossed over. I have grieved you despite my knowing, the knowing that separation is an illusion, the knowing that I have feel you, and that you live in my heart, and all the same the tears flow.
In the beginning I glimpsed your spirit in the breezeway of the stable, and I felt assured, and wondered if you stayed for me, all the while I know you did. Before we said goodbye you communicated that you “knew” what was coming, and that you would have stayed for me despite your suffering, something that touched me deeply, acknowledging our bond. As I faced the decision, to let you go I struggled until in that moment I knew the choice was clear. It was afterwards my mind and heart questioned, even knowing I could not let you suffer a moment longer, as I trusted the love and connection we developed over the years.
You changed me, became my family, added to me, taught me how to listen, communicate. I have never known a kinder animal, and I felt secure with you. Together we learned one another as neither of us had ever experienced a relationship as this. I began to understand how respect translates, boundaries, safety, connection, power and unconditional love. You are brave and strong and accepted every thing that came on our path without complaint.
Your former job caused damage to your body, and our primary focus was on the healing, and I learned to stay in the moment with whatever challenge we faced. You comforted me when Joe was sick, and told me before we knew that he had cancer.
After you left there was a huge space left, and I knew you gave me the gift of release, something we both were ready for, to be free, as we had done all that we could together, and it was time to move to the next steps of our journey.
I hear your voice in my mind, and find joy in how your lips would reach for the carrots I fed you, and whinnied as you watched me fix the bucket of mash you lived for. I have so much to smile about that my tears are now turning to the joy of knowing you will always be with me as the love we share is eternal and the work still continues as we are one!

This is the time of year when the veil between the worlds is thinner, and we are able to hear, see, feel and to tune-into vibrations of the people who still live in our hearts, yet do not have physical form.
Every person has the capability of bringing a message from the spiritual realms. When you become attuned to how communication happens, awareness grows and we alleviate feelings of being alone and separated from those we long to connect with. Spirits on the other side often long to let you know they are still alive and with you. This is an opportunity to learn to trust and increase your intuitive gifts.
The circle will be giving messages to one another, allowing one more confidence in trusting what comes into our minds and hearts using intuition as a guide.
The circle will be set with an empowered intention, according to who attends.
This is an interactive circle where we are all connecting, interpreting, and listening for messages to give and receive. I will give you guidelines, set the circle through guided meditation in preparation for the ceremony.

I talk about Camelot often, as it is a place of community, where people gather to support and develop their skills in working in relationship with the grace and generosity of the horse. Camelot is a facility that provides a sacred space dedicated to that one purpose. Its designed for people with physical challenges to give them an opportunity to develop leadership skills in working with a community who have one goal, to serve their special needs.
Any success is based on generating the perfect amount of skill and resource to fulfill the intention of the goal. Camelot is one such place. People are drawn to Camelot for many reasons, to share knowledge, teach, to serve others who, if not for them would never experience the freedom of riding.
Founded in 1980, Camelot has grown to become a state-of-the art facility, located on 14.25 acres. They have a beautifully maintained ranch with 3 large pastures, one covered and a dressage arena in addition to a walking trail on the perimeter of the property.
They also have a labyrinth donated by one of the members and designed for wheelchair access. Each rock carefully lines the path, thoughtfully placed by students, volunteers and their families.
As a non-profit, charitable organization, Camelot does not charge students, relying solely on private donations from the community.
Each year 2 important fund-raisers are held to insure the continuation of the success of the program. All donations are 100% tax deductible. Please join us for Starry Knights October 21, or to donate or purchase silent auction items, visit http://camelotaz.org/
