I was just now inspired to tell this story when I read the blog of another Xangan.
I use to hang out with a woman that owned a horse. One night, when I had been drinking for a while, probably about a week or so, we drove down to the stables where she kept her horse. By drinking, I don't mean a few beers or shots a day, but at least two quarts of 80 proof whatever a day minimum, plus whatever beer I drank on the side. It was cold out and I was not dressed for the weather and I was freezing, but I didn't care. I hadn't had any food for the whole time I'd been drinking and I was in one of those states where I was half out of my body from lack of food and the effects of the alcohol. I could feel energy flowing out of my body like a current and intermingling with the air around me. I was wide open psychically and I was hoping I'd freeze to death and just fall over dead there in the beautiful dark cold night. Very blissed out.
We walked into the stables and began walking down the long straw covered aisle to where her horse was. On the left were pens where there were other animals like goats and sheeps. There were some cats sleeping together on a pile of straw. We got up to her horse and she began talking to it and patting its head and such. The horse, which had been drousy, suddenly became very awake and began sniffing me and snorting and trying to "kiss" me, for lack of a better word. My friend, who had told me earlier that her horse was a female and didn't like male humans, was quite taken aback by this behaviour. By now, the whole place was awake. The cats were up jumping around and playing with each other, the sheeps and goats were walking around and some birds were chirping in the rafters above. Since I was near death and half outside my body, there was no resistance on my part as the horse was by now licking my head and pawing at the ground and becoming quite agitated, in a very "friendly" kind of way. I could feel that the horse was absorbing the spiritual flow that was coming from me and, being unaccustomed to so much positive energy, was responding in a way ouside her usual patterns of behaviour. My friend said it was time to go because by the way her horse was going, she was afraid it might start trying to kick the wooden rails down. All this was made stranger by the fact that I don't really like horses. As we walked out, the horses and other animals were all in the fronts of their stalls and pens, watching us leave.
I've had experinces with animals like this several times in my life, some when I was drinking and some not. It's a state of consciousness I get into on rare occasions where the flow of spiritual energy from my body is not blocked by anything in my mind. It happened more when I was kid, but as an adult the only time I experienced it was when I had been drinking long enough to become partially released from my body. See what civilization does to us?
