Ellie: The beauty of the Goddess is released into the heart of the One, with time-encoded instructions, for your own safety. When you are ready, you will receive instructions, and only when you are able will you be directed to do the next task.

Carole: Ellie, my mind is focused on you now to transfer your thoughts and feelings about the Goddess and the Horse, and your ideas about creation myths for the species Equus. It has been six months since we last joined hearts and minds this way. I was connected with Buddy for his wisdom then, now I ask you to join us and share your wisdom too.

Ellie: Everything is like a woven tapestry. The focus of which is not known for many millennia because we are too close to see it or know it. Yet when it is almost completed, that is when we may make out its significance. Like an embryo deciding what to become, all is incomprehensible at first. So we wait for first light and first sound, for the tapestry to mature, to ripen. As we do, we are given clues about how to move through it, to add or harmonize with it as we see fit.

If we do not wait quietly, our thoughts will trample us. We need to host small, simple thoughts that cannot hold us captive. We need space and freedom to roam and move about within our thoughts. So, small steps, simple thoughts. Not a herd of thinking that could create a stampede if we allow it to get the better of us.

We will work with one small bit of material at a time, not all Myths simultaneously. That would be much too large for any mind to hold or understand. Sink into a single myth at a time with open mind and open eyes. We can sink into a myth now. Relax and enjoy. See.

Carole: Why is the Goddess so important in human mythology? Does Equine Goddess Mythology correspond to Human Goddess Mythology?

Ellie: All of Equus is from a star system, far, far, from here. Where do you need us today?

Carole: Since you were bred as a Thoroughbred Race Horse, would you like to talk about The Goddess and The Race Horse?

Ellie: The Goddess feels your suffering. To open to me you must cut loose. Expand. Open. Feel deeply inside. Feel free inside. The Goddess is not chained or held back in any way. Neither in hate, nor anger, not by any dark forces. The Goddess has a jeweled mind. We come from rubies and emeralds, all glittering with clear color and hard smooth perfection. You will get there. I am leading you down a path. Open you must, trust you will. Share what you seek, playfully, carefully, joyfully, gently, descending into the mind/mine, from where Goddess energy comes.

The Goddess is an energy pattern. We know there are tree goddesses, rock goddesses, Earth goddesses. It is a type of soul expression that begins slowly and expands and brings forth fruit of all varieties into intensity. The Goddess in me is deeply encoded to love and be loved. Bright sky, look to the stars, move into a star with your open heart. What do you see? The Goddess works with the senses. The feeling senses, smell, taste, touch and sight. We will work first with the hearing sense.

The silence of love is where we come from, out of the deep silence we tone a sound that we love and all the souls that love that sound, come to dance around us. Then we display our toned creation for all eyes to see. The tone goes into our eyes where our hearts reflect more to become, and our eyes shine out to the stars with the tone and then there is form. Sound, light, stars and silence. Still, we come from a deep, rich, dark silence.  A simple tone created us, and all that we are.

So we are like music of the stars and the planets, the great Void and Beauty. Each star has a sound and if you maintain that sound you will become that sound. Each species has its own tone, its own true Voice, it is the sound of their Soul, and it can be traced into the darkness and the silent Universe filled with stardust.
 
We come from a symphony of stars and stillness. I am manifest from my own star jam. I am Star stuff made into living matter, an Earth-nuclear biostar, matter mixed with clay, Earth with fire, from sun and Earth. I connect at the star level, through my astral intelligence to be perceptible to your human eyes in this cosmic garden called Earth. This earthly garden is made from this ""prima materia.""

I danced for my living, as a star dancer would. All bright and shiny and full of light, sparkling across galaxies until I met with Earth's pull. The Earth's consciousness pulled me, and all species from the cosmos to Herself, as she needed. We are only released into the Void again when we are no longer able to maintain our stellar vibration, or when Mother Earth cannot support us any longer. What Earth needs, she puts out to the Universe, and the Universe feels the attraction and she responds. Every soul, species, human or not, is an answer to Earth's prayers. Earth is the Mother Goddess of us all. Our species came to planet Earth because it is where we were called.

Carole: Did Earth call horses to Herself to repay a debt of some kind? Why did Mother Earth call on the spirit of Equus?

Ellie: Earth needed help with Her waters, her oceans, lakes, rivers and seas. She called to the Universe and the soul of the horse responded to that call. After coming from the stars, the spirit and soul of the species Equus went straight into Earth's oceans, and all Her waterways and our vibrations and frequencies changed the Earth's waters. Afterwards, Earth's waters were different. We changed the vibration of water on Earth. Then Earth called to us again and we came out of Her water and moved onto Her land.

Carole: Why were you called onto the land?

Ellie: To help the humans move across Her surface, to plant seeds and grow in size and number. We are no longer needed for that purpose, but humans have fallen in love - which means they recognize our love, the love we are made of, and have chosen to keep us here. Many of our species returned home, as their jobs were finished. But, those of us who chose to stay, did so for the love of humanity.

Carole: (Unable to speak and overwhelmed by this statement.) Ellie replied.

Ellie: [Sensing my deeper emotions] Yes. That shocks you, but it is true. We love you . . . more than you love yourselves, obviously, or you would not be so shocked to hear me say this.

Carole: Well, it just seems humanity has abused this love the horse has for us. Maybe it is the guilt I feel for my humanity that you sense choking the feeling of love down in me.

Ellie: Yes. That is why you would like to have us stay. It is because we love you and feel your pain and would like to help you clear yourselves of the terrible ignorance that breeds your fear.

"As a new day dawns, the Earth and all beings are once again regarded as sacred. All creatures are seen as fellow beings - the unique qualities of each are recognized and respected. As we nurture these other species, they in turn nurture our spirits; we recognize our connection with each other. Our spiritual link with Mother Earth and all of her creatures has been re-awakened. As human beings realize that they too are part of the natural world, rather than separate from or above it, the planet and all beings survive and flourish."  A quote from www.goddessmyths.com
