You make your way by walking
My name is Mirjam Voets. In 2017 I left the Netherlands with my horses, Meknes and Nikka, in order to find our home in Spain or Portugal. We let go of everything and started to travel. The period became almost 2 years, but I kept on trusting universe, that we would find our home. And we did after 20 months.
Be the change you want to see in the world
My horses and me, are the living examples that you can overcome most obstacles in life. Being insecure the three of us, we traveled together through Europe. We faced many hardships and our journey was everything but easy. I learned more about life, people, horses, universe and myself than I could ever dream of.
The essence of life
My horses and universe taught me about love, letting go, connecting, being present in the here and now, authenticity, adapting to the horse world. I started to understand a little bit about the essence of life. My life became more pure every day. The connection with myself, horses and universe, deeper every day too.
Faithful to my soul
What was most important for me, during our journey, was to always stay faithful to the souls of my horses and my own. I wanted to be able to look in the mirror at night, and be happy with myself. I just couldn’t change freedom, honesty, equality, transparency or authenticity for money or other motives.
Recognizing the soul
I truly believe that we make the world much nicer, if we stay faithful to our esence. People and horses can heal when they feel that their soul is heard and understood. When Meknes his soul was recognized, he started to shine. When horses feel loved and understood, we don’t need to control them. Then they simply want to be with us and they shine from within.
Treat others (horses) as you want to be treated
A lot of times humans act ‘superior’ over horses. We make decisions for them, and they have to do whatever we tell them. Horses learn to shut up, or to shout very loud. I believe that we can treat horses in the same way, as we want to be treated. I try to fulfill their basic needs (24/7 outside with access to grass/hay and living in a herd), love them, recognize their soul and listen to them as good as I can.
What can I do for you?
I will help you to connect to your soul. From there you can have relationships with others, and/or your horse, based on love and (self)compassion.
My greatest gift is that I am transparent and that I try to communicate to the soul (whether it is a horse or a human), instead of focusing on the behaviour (outer layer). I trust universe to guide me, and I am not afraid of challenges. I always try to heal myself a bit more, to be able to be as sensible as much as possible.
