Spirits in Animal Bodies & A Little About Tiny Horses

animal brothers and sisters

Animals have souls too and are Spirit in physical form, choosing the body and experience that best supports their journey and the collective tapestry weaving and unfolding. I have always seen them as equals and one and the same as humans. In fact, they have been, and are, my best friends, partners, co-creators, teachers/guides and students, soul mates, and twin souls. As a little girl, they were all I felt most connected to and where I felt most comfortable being in their company.

I remember a channeler once looking at my aura and energetic field and saying how many animal spirit guides I had around me – more than he’d ever seen around someone and – and even my dear Laura sharing, long ago, that she’d never met someone who’s been an animal in past lives more than me (at least at the time that she shared this). 😉

Needless to say, I love and get these sweet souls (as I know many of you do too and would share similar feelings and experiences) and know that they have much to teach us, which is why much of my life is devoted in helping to be a voice for them and their important messages/ways of teaching us, and helping people to recognize they are just like us – helping to look beyond appearances and feel into the heart and spirit.

Yes, stop judging a book by its cover extends to all books.

While I love them all, over time I’ve discovered the ones that speak most to my journey and are constantly around me (like rabbits, horses, butterflies, hawks, whales, dolphins, geese, tortoises…and others I wear on my skin as sacred tattoos). Although new animal spirit guides will wander in and out when needed and in cycles (like many of the ones I post photos of and share about in my blog and on social media, as they flow into my life).

And some in fact are my familiars.

I came into this life with a huge love for horses, likely because of my repetitive and transformative lives as one, but discovered this has been part of my integration and healing process that then has led me forward. And while horses will always be powerfully and soulfully connected, since there is that mirror of recognition and resonance, I’ve now moved into what I like to call the “tiny horse” realm.

This, of course being rabbits.

Why do I call them “tiny horses” you ask?

Well, because in fact they are more closely related to horses than they are to a rat or mouse, contrary to belief.

Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents, although do share similarities, but some major differences including their teeth and the fact that lagomorphs are herbivores, whereas rodents are omnivores so they have digestive differences.

There’s also differences in male reproductive parts, whereas rodents have baculum (penis) bones and rabbits do not. Humans, horses, cetaceans (whales and dolphins), and marsupials also don’t have baculum bones.

This may be one of the reasons rabbits are considered close relatives to horses because they both seem to have retained primitive traits from the most primitive boreoeutherian mammals.

Rabbits and horses have the same digestive systems, teeth similarities, eat the same kinds of foods, have similar behaviors, sensitivities, prey instincts, and body language, not to mention they are amazing mirrors for therapy work on so many levels. Their faces and heads can literally look like a horse too, minus the long ears.

If you know about horses it definitely will help you to understand rabbits, so no surprise of my own evolution with this.

And a new “tiny horse” is on his way into my life in just 10 days! Yes, I’m doing the countdown. It’s been a long, patient journey awaiting his arrival, due to our travels, but he still hasn’t been adopted and that means our connection has been solidified through our telepathic journeys.

Just two days ago I solidified things further by ordering all of his new supplies, gifts, and special herbal and nutritional items to make him feel right at home and fortified in well being. We don’t have much room in this small treehouse up in Lake Tahoe, so I couldn’t go all out as I wanted to with Faery bunny extravaganza, but he will have the best of nutrition and loving touches of which I can integrate in here to meet his needs. Will be tight, but full of love.

And in the one photo I do have of him, which is what drew me in in the first place, I do have to say he looks like a tiny horse for sure.

Excited for the journey we will share for however long is meant to be.

I will continue to be a voice for the spirits in animal bodies, especially through my magickal rabbit friends, as our Cosmic connection aligns most with my own.

  1. During the short time that I practiced shamanism, at least the white man’s version, I also gathered a huge crowd of spirit animal guides and helpers. It was quite amazing. Horses, bears, hawks, cats, foxes, koala bears, and so on. Thanks for sharing your special relationship with the tiny horses… our dear rabbit brothers and sisters. BTW, we have some especially cute wild rabbits who live in nearby marshes. They often pose briefly for a photo.

    • how wonderful! it is such a beautifully rich journey to integrate our relationships with animals and plants, nature and the earth at large. so appreciate your words and love that you have some magickal wild rabbits nearby too! ❤

  2. I am so pleased you are getting a new bunny,
    Out if my five I only have 3 left, and they are my special children….along with my cats and parrots. …weird combo but it works for me.
    They are all special precious little souls.
    And, yes I can see the similarity between horses ..they even have the same cheek bone.
    Loads of love and huge hugs your way.

    • thank you so much jeanette ❤ i know you understand that connection with these sweet ones. i'm sorry you have had to say goodbye physically to 2 of your special children too. wonderful combo of animal companions. we at one time had two cats, a rabbit and tortoise, which shifted to 2 cats and 2 rabbits…now to be 2 cats and a rabbit. i used to have parakeets when younger. love the bird spirits! all amazing for sure! so much love and warmest of hugs to you too xoox!

    I’m so excited for you about your new bunny love. Thank you for giving it a home and loving it so much. I’ve had two rabbits myself and would have one from a rescue again if my landlord would let me. I spoiled my rabbits from BusyBunny.com as they had the most amazing toys made specifically for rabbits. I can’t wait to see pictures of you and your new bunny love. Love, light and blessings to you and yours.

    • aw thanks so much!!!! i wish you could have another one too again….maybe something will shift. always in divine timing. who knows what’s in the works. i so appreciate your shared excitement. love and bunny hugs to you
