Ask Astrid Fridays ~ The Rabbit’s Corner: Subtly Profound Shifts, Magickal Chests, Animal Equals, Doorways Upon Doorways & Grounding Visions
Hoppy 1st of November from Astrid and me. A new month begins and I’m wondering if others are feeling a subtle shift, as we are? The last two days something hit me, although I wouldn’t be able to put it into words to describe. It did, however, take both Astrid and I into a beautiful space of greater remembering and connection that led to more merging internally.
Some messages came through, including a vision and invitation, and this led to both creating this new piece you see, as well as our journeying together on yesterday’s Samhain.
I thought I would share some of what we experienced.
It’s called The Great Conjunction and is the newest Magick Rabbit Keepsake Chest. It was claimed by a very special soul before I even listed it in the shop, so I know without doubt it is going exactly where it is meant to be – I couldn’t be happier. I do have to admit though, it’s a tough one to part with.
It’s hard to capture the silver and gold metallic shimmer used, but it adds a magickal essence in person, as do the ten 3-D mini planets embedded on the chest that are each a genuine crystal and stone. Details include three shooting stars, a fourth larger one at back center, silvery moon, golden cosmic tree, and silvery white cosmic rabbit. You may have caught glimpse of other shapes emerging in the nebulae and Cosmos. It’s truly one of the most magickal potent creations I’ve made.
The energy goes along with a vision received two days ago and yesterday’s sacred journey I went on after creating it that was revealing and synchronous.
Right before all of this – creating the chest and tuning in – I had an incredible experience with four hawks that was so powerful for yesterday.
I was on my way out to do three errands and while driving to the first, suddenly a hawk appeared from my right flying so low, just feet above the ground and street. It came right across my windshield and just seconds behind, was a second hawk that did exactly the same. That was incredible itself, but it continued. Right after leaving my first errand, I got in my car getting ready to turn back on the same street and a third hawk did the very same thing. I thought wow, that’s really amazing. How often does that happen? Well, I guess for me that day it was four times, as when I left my second errand a fourth hawk did the exact thing again.
I’ve recently had this happen when driving down to Reno where one hawk had done the same thing. After crossing my windshield he made a huge circle that ended up crossing my path twice to do it again because I had gotten off of the freeway and had made a half circle turn that brought us back together again.
But four hawks?
It was a “pinch me” kind of experience and I knew it was my dear companions (Nestor, Joy, Cosmo and Gaia) sending me a little hello from beyond the veils. Hawks always show up for me from that in between world as sentinels, bringers of confirming messages, protection, support, and presence around me.
Later, after returning home, I was playing the song I shared with all of you yesterday quite a few times, as it felt in line with everything. And as usual, was singing along with it, which had Astrid sitting in a very deliberate, but softened state of engaged trance, as she communed in the energies swirling through. As this happened, a shadow flew by my office and then a raven appeared.
I went about channeling the vision into the piece above and then cleaned up and prepared for our next sacred experience.
This involved creating an intentional space for tuning in. It was not to be anything overdone. Simple, yet potent. It was so easy for me to know what we would use for this little ritual journey – so I trusted it was perfectly guided. Like with all things, I love Astrid to be able to be right by my side if she wants to, so I set things up on the floor next to her area although she was not there yet.
Then, of course, I Ask Astrid to join. 😉
I have a lot of little lights in the room and so I turned them all on, which included the rabbit wreath you see, a hanging Moon light I have, and rabbit lights. Before shutting the main lights I took a couple of quick photos.
The interesting thing is that right before this, our black male cat Boojum had been super noisy – howling and wanting attention by coming to my room. I wondered if he would interrupt this sacred time, but once I got everything set up he in fact did stop and never once made a peep or came in the entire time.
Once I’d set things in place, there was protection around it.
I won’t go into details, as it would be far too long, wild, and sound like someone on some kind of psychedelic trip from what I’ve heard people share, which I assure you I never have been on, never have done any kind of drugs, and nor do I even drink alcohol.
I did have a warm cup of new tea from my tea witch Pisces friend that is an amazing, cleansing herbal blend of aged 5 years Naked Pu’er tea.
I will share that as soon as I set up, Astrid took her place nestled to the left snuggled into her crystal friends awaiting us to begin.
And I will share also that as soon as I sat down and began to tune in, she came right over to me and didn’t leave my side the entire time. She did nose and breathe into the sacred pieces I’d placed, but then came to my right and sat there as I stroked her softly with one hand, holding my special wand with the other.
The journey took me through the doorway between worlds, which is the invitation I had received the night before to accept.
I will also share that in fact it was not just one doorway, but many doorways within doorways that spanned realms and Cosmos, communing with many beings along the way including my essence, and provided me a key to return and how to find it always.
It was truly beautiful and subtly profound without the horns and whistles, yet made a lasting mark for me and us together – took our relationship to another level.
At one point Astrid went to my left where I had moved my tea cup and even sipped a tiny bit herself! And nearing the end she visited the center of our little altar, gave it one nibble as her way of closing things, and then went back to the left knowing things were complete. She eventually returned to her crystals, as you can see.
She is always so in tune and shows me her wise self, but she was truly amazing this evening and it took our partnership to another level. Astrid is an incredible being I feel humbled to have with me and to be able to care for, so that she may thrive in her role she chose for this life.
While what I share may sound so “out there” and crazy even without the extra details, it was actually so grounded and tangible. Once again, demonstrating to me how we can merge these parts of ourselves and other realities without it being mind-blowing or altering. It speaks to how subtle does not mean less profound or powerful and that it is the softness of those whispers within and the brush of a brief vision that if trusted can make all the difference.
I am sharing this simply as my experience to perhaps open doorways for others not to be afraid to share theirs, or even to wander down new explorations within conscious reality that is available to everyone.
As Lee shares in the video below, it’s important to ground your vision because that internal rewiring aligns you with it, rather than experiencing a potentially chaotic leap.
Having done both, like Lee shares, it can indeed be exhilarating to ride the energy of a spontaneous leap, but these days we have the ability to create greater balance and aligned support so that we aren’t having to work so hard along the way, to reach the vision.
This is what I’m experiencing with my journey and the details along the way. I’m learning more and more to merge the parts of myself to create peaceful anchoring and substance to the visions I receive.
Just as I brought forth the Keepsake Chest from a vision I had, there is a way to bring through energy in a very tangible way.
And on a last note, don’t forget to turn back your clocks an hour this weekend. We may have less light, but the days and how much “time” I have always still feels extended to me during this cycle of the year. If more darkness affects you in ways that feel limiting, it’s a time to create your own light from the inside out and embrace what the darkness offers in journeying more with the emotional and subconscious worlds within your heart.
As Lee channels at the very end of this month’s energy update from a portion of his newly released cd – Journey into Your Heart – with Barry Goldstein, “The heart is the brain of the soul. It is what leads you here on Earth. So a life disconnected from heart energy, is a life half lived.”
