Hope Kindles Change
I shared about the ever-sweet, magickal new bunny friend that now graces my garden and outdoor sanctuary space with her presence.
She returned on Friday and we spent a lot of time again together in the side yard where she enjoyed nibbling on the leaves of a tree within a circle of lush bushes and other trees.
I immediately received her name – Hope – and could feel the message she carries.
Hope is so pure and innocent, and yet as tiny and vulnerable as she is, she has such grounded presence, depth, and desire to connect without fear. I can sense a wisdom beyond her years and a spirit that is far greater than her tiny, fragile body and existence.
Whenever she shows up she is either bathing peacefully in the sun’s full glow with intention, or is surrounded by filtered golden beams, rainbow light, and soft emanating glows.
She lets me hang out with her and come as near as I want, but we experience harmony in both our exchanges and sharing the land here that we both are blessed to live on.
I made a promise to the land and Faery realm here before we got this house, that I would take care of it and create a sanctuary for all of them to safely thrive in. I also promised to continue to do my own contributing of gifts to the collective and that together we would support a new reality’s potential into manifestation.
Everyday little animals happily thrive here and I welcome them to share in the bounty.
The bunnies come through much more deliberately, however. Their sightings are rare and aligned. So, I know there is purpose when I commune with any of them, which so far seems to be one at a time except for last year when both Blueberry and his mom were together.
Hope is a new generation of bunnies and synchronously the day she gave me her name, we also learned that our neighbors across the street brought into this world their new baby boy.
On this same day, also, I placed my mushroom statuary I had inside my office, alongside the flying faery that is taking off from atop a smaller mushroom.
I felt something was missing there to anchor the end of the path and it also beautifully puts all the little beings (rabbits, gnomes, and faeries) into the right size perspective.
I also ordered the little bird bath I wanted, which will go in the garden for the sweet bird friends (we have more now than ever too, including all sized robins, woodpeckers, sweet little chickadees, hummingbirds, steller’s jays, and a variety I don’t know). I will place some rocks in it to create a shallow part for the bees and butterflies too.
Mushrooms are considered good look and foretell of promising fortune at hand, as well as represent the force of nature and rebirth.
The bird bath brings a purifying and cleansing, as well as replenishing energy to the garden. Water is the elixir of life and birds are messengers between realms of earth and sky.
Everything speaking to me of potential and hope for the new.
Hope is the pause, presence, and passion that assists you to align with opportunity in divine timing.
It can be hard amidst challenges that seem never-ending and so heavy to see light at the end of the tunnel.
But often, miracles happen just when you thought there was nothing left to hope for and people tend to stop just short of that tipping point.
Every “setback” can be viewed as the potential for something more to be brought to light, greater alignment in process, or the opportunity to turn something from one thing to another (alchemy) and shift your vibration to match it. Setbacks can be a form of preparation and training to ensure you move forward into the new with a stronger anchor and greater readiness.
Much is shifting in the world on a daily and moment-to-moment basis and if you choose to only focus and dwell on one perspective – seeing only all the drama and catastrophe – not only will you be sucked into a cesspool of quicksand that keeps dragging you down, but you’ll also miss out on the rest (like things to be grateful for), which includes how those things you may not like so much are, and have, actually been fueling all of the positive changes and potentials.
Let’s remind each other of our wholeness, by embodying it more and more and embracing all potentials of experience, not just the challenging, discouraging, and depressing ones.
People often wonder how I can always see the silver lining in things, but it’s because I know from experience that things always turn around, as is the nature of cycles, and that even in my darkest hours, allowing energy to flow through me without judgment and inviting perspective brought release and hope to light.
This isn’t to deny that you may be experiencing something very dark and restrictive feeling, as that is a valid feeling to allow yourself to explore. But it is a way to actively engage yourself into learning how to make a safe space for your heart’s desires to see the light, regardless.
Sometimes that translates into surrendering into peaceful embrace of what is naturally unfolding, realizing the perfection of the bigger picture at hand that is at work for the highest good of all concerned.
And when doing so, we receive beautiful gifts and surprises that birth forth with renewable thriving.
This may not always be the case, as some things simply are showing us the impermanence of life, the continuity of life cycles, the natural evolution, constant change, and the need for loving release and surrender into the flow of unfolding that is presented to us.
There are reasons things unfold as they do.
Sometimes they call for us to take heed more and tend to love and nurturing that we need to be more present to, and which can make the difference in what we want to create, when we do so.
And sometimes we need to understand the message that there are times for us to move on and the culmination of closure has come.
Many times both of those come hand-in-hand.
All of which is not a loss, but simply a gentle embrace of potential adventure into the brilliance of your next choosing.
Something new is always available to us.
It may not be the same…and in fact it shouldn’t be.
It will feel different.
It temporarily may feel uncomfortable.
You might go through a short grieving period, as you let go with gratitude.
It might bring to light your fears and feel scary at first.
It will take an adjustment period while you integrate.
But it WILL present you opportunity in every way.
Opportunity for greater potential.
Opportunity for something more than you thought possible.
Opportunity to be more naturally you because you are in the flow of life, rather than using your energy to go against the current.
Thriving, rather than struggling and surviving, as Astrid demonstrated in her last share.
My sweet bunny friend, Hope, wants us not to lose all faith.
She wants us to kindle hope, because hope kindles change.
Not an attached, desperate, yearning kind of hope that tightens one’s ability to breathe, but a gentle, soft inhale of possibility.
Dark despair and resignation sets up self-fulfilling prophecies. What you believe has power over you.
Hope is a process of remembering your nature, and as nature always renews, so can you.
