Oh that wascally wabbit! That line from a childhood cartoon will forever come to mind when I think of rabbits and then I either smile or giggle. Rabbits usually elicit different memories or thoughts for different people. Some see them as soft cuddly little bunnies that are just adorable. Some see them as food. Others see them as an annoyance. Spiritually, it is interesting that the same thing happens. The rabbit is seen differently in different cultures and with different people. Some see it as good fortune and calling in the power of the moon. If you were born under the sign of the rabbit, you are believed to be artistic and sensitive. The rabbit is also linked with goddesses, especially Hecate and Eostre, the Germanic fertility goddess which is how the rabbit became associated with Easter. In some Native American traditions rabbit is known as the Fear Caller because of its tendency to project its fear of those wishing to eat it; thereby, attracting the very predators it fears (scared as a rabbit). Rabbits are well-known as timid, shy and afraid creatures. What we can learn from this is that if we are always afraid of something, then we may draw/create the very experience we are afraid of into our lives. There is a certain vibrational energy to fear that may attract the very thing we fear. Fearful thoughts can reproduce (just like rabbits) and manifest what we fear.
Rabbits are guides into the shadow world where our personal fears lie, so if you are seeing or being shown rabbits ask yourself why and what is it that you need to let go of. We all have choices. We do not need to hold onto anything negative or of low vibration. Once you let go and the rabbit has done its job, then see it as the warm, friendly, cuddly creature it is showing us how to attract love, abundance, health, and a warm, dry burrow. In moving through fear, living by our own wits, receiving hidden teachings and intuitive messages, quick thinking, strengthening intuition, and paradox we can then play, have fun and a much lighter spirit about us! Watch the rabbit hop away just as your fears do. It really is up to you to make these choices in your life. Sometimes we just need a reminder to hop to it, so to speak. I love you! Namaste
