Rabbits On My Mind, Transformation In Motion & New Store Now Open
February is “Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month,” to bring focus to rabbits living in shelters awaiting a forever home, which is such a sweet sync wink for me since it’s also my and Nestor’s birthday month.
In fact, I had a potent rabbit dream very early morning of Nestor’s birthday on the 1st of February that held a lot of symbolism woven through it. It featured Astrid in the first part and then Astrid and another rabbit in the last part.
The other rabbit was a black, velvety, Rex male rabbit with dark eyes – very handsome, regal in stature, and embodying shadow essence. The dream was both disturbing and alchemically powerful, but had a complexity of layers to it that spanned several depths of experience. At one point Astrid turned into a white rabbit.
Side note: Although, I don’t talk a lot about my very first rabbit when I was 12 years old, he was in fact white. His name was Twinkie, pictured below. So, I have had the honor of five (my favorite number and one of the messaging systems the rabbits use in communicating to me with repetitive 5’s) soul companions in rabbit bodies.
Without going into detail, I will say that the black, Rex male rabbit immediately reminded me of The Black Rabbit of Inlé from Watership Down – messenger and servant to Lord Frith (god figure/Sun in rabbit folklore said to have created the world), death personified, and as Wikipedia describes him:
“Known as Inlé-rah (“Prince/Chief of the Moon” or “Prince/Chief of the Dead”) to his ghostly Owsla, he is a sombre phantom servant of the god Frith who appears in rabbit folklore as a kind of analogue to the grim reaper. His duty is to ensure all rabbits die at their predestined time, and he avenges any rabbit killed without his consent. Inlé is the Lapine term for the moon/moonrise, as well as the word for the Land of the Dead”
I get chills thinking about it all and this sense of big transformation in motion with what’s about to take place in the micro and macro worlds.
Of all my rabbit companions Astrid is most similar to Nestor, although they all commune tightly, with Nestor as kind of the guiding force threading them all together. Astrid and Nestor’s similarities make me feel like sometimes they cross in spirit.
I also remember not long after I brought Joy home that she actually went into a fully surrendered state in my arms to the point I thought she was dead, and allowed Nestor to come into her body for me to feel and know Nestor’s presence was still with me. I recall this took place as I was sitting in my solarium overlooking Lake Tahoe, under the stars, and tears rushing down my face as I felt Nestor fully inhabit her body.
Joy was the rabbit Nestor led me to, after she transitioned, who helped me through the traumatic and devastating loss. Nestor chose Joy for me because Joy was so versed in telepathy, dream journeying, the ability to be a channel, and see other dimensions, amongst other gifts. It was her telepathic skills that enabled her to message me to come adopt her in the first place. Joy looked up to Nestor tremendously and had learned much from her that she also helped pass along to Cosmo, including Reiki Master training.
Oh, the stories I have about these soul companions who once inhabited rabbit bodies – most of which no one would ever believe. I know them all as masterful souls who just so happened to choose rabbit bodies this go around, because it’s closest to their nature and also in order to be with me as they are.
It’s no wonder I’ve also been busy redecorating our rabbit-themed Wonderland here during this time period, which is being directed by my rabbit companions themselves, and have heard from others how rabbits have been showing up a lot, at interesting times, but also in quite magickal ways.
All that to say that I’ve been experiencing a lot of rabbit energy, signs, and messengers coming through MORE than usual, which says A LOT. I have rabbits on my mind, and of course in my heart.
There’s been a feeling of something extra stirring with all of this.
And I’ve felt increasingly different through it all.
There’s a dichotomy of feeling more familiar and foreign to myself, at once and another round of life review and major time periods of healing and shifts that took place in my life that I’m viewing as confirmation of what’s playing out collectively now.
And interestingly, I’ve also felt more in this world, but not of it than I have before – observing things like an inquisitive visitor, reviewing things like a well-prepped researcher, experiencing things like a new-born inventor, and reporting back like a pilgrim of the Cosmos.
But all the while, as Dave has told others recently in conversation, I “bounce around like a pixie with a lot of energy to move in spontaneous ways,” and he’s in awe of “how someone could be so joyful and sing and dance around the from the moment she wakes.”
The rabbits have taught me well, as I really am SO much part rabbit.
I love the explanation of the varying aspects of rabbit behavior from My House Rabbit, all of which I relate to including:
“People unfamiliar to pet rabbits may not know that bunnies have a very dramatic way of expressing excitement and joy. They dance! Leaping in the air, contorting and twisting their bodies, and kicking their feet out, binkying rabbits are quite the spectacle. Sometimes rabbits lead up to a binky by taking a running start. Other times, a binky is a sudden burst to the side. What’s really fun is when the binkies occur in succession, creating a grand acrobatic display. I’ll submit that anyone who thinks rabbits are dull has not seen a bunny in the act of binkying.”
Although we (rabbits and me) are “relatively quiet creatures,” we both have unique ways of communicating. 😉
And that includes communication through creations, which leads me to what’s been going on behind the scenes as rabbit energy has been on extra high.
As I shared in a recent post hinting at what was upcoming, The Enchanted Realms Collection – much of which features rabbits – manifested into the form of new creations I was able to have made in the image of the originals.
This was such a well-received, magickal collection and because it’s often so bitter sweet seeing off my channelings, even though I’m so happy they go to loving homes I know they’re meant to be in, I was really pleased to be able to recreate them in sweet little ways I, and others, could also still enjoy them too. So, yes, I love them so much that I created some of these new items for myself. 🙂
These include year-round ceramic ornament shapes, a couple of keychain style options, acrylic coaster sets with holders, 100% cotton tote bags, and a golden oak with ceramic tile top and velvety lined keepsake box – all under $40.
There is a new page on this site where you can find the collection and two options for bringing home anyone that calls to your heart. Here is the link:
The bottom of that page has ready-to-ship items that I printed to test, which can be packaged off to you right away. I’ll do my best to keep it updated with what’s available or sold, but unfortunately I have to do that manually and may not always have access to my computer. I apologize if a duplicate order happens and of course will reimburse anyone if necessary.
You can read more details at the link.
You can also go direct to our Zazzle Store here where you’ll find two extra items with another image option I didn’t have time to order for ready-to-ship:TheMagickRabbit
The ready-to-ship items I have are only available for sending within the U.S.
The items at our Zazzle Store link are available for international shipping.
In any event, we (me and the rabbit collective) hope you enjoy these creations from our hearts. While simple, like anything we create, it’s always infused with much more and you can discover that meaning for yourself, each time you peer into these mini portals of transformation.
Would love to hear from anyone who also may have “rabbits on the mind” or are experiencing extra appearances or messages from these magickal creatures.
