Rabbit Spirit Animal

On my early morning hikes, spirit Rabbit has shown itself every single twilight. Not always the same Rabbit, but the spirit of this timid creature in different forms. Jumping across my path, leading the way up the steep climb I have chosen to hike, Rabbit has been with us. The symbolism is incredible, and a beautiful reminder to all of us that slow and steady through awareness will win the race. If we face our fears head on, we will journey with a growth of pure magnetism that will set the cosmos alight and our hearts free with pure being. We can become able to be aware of ourselves in sadness and in joy without tilting too far one way or the other.

Rabbit is interpreted in different ways in different cultures. In China, it is one of the astrological animals and linked to good fortune and the moon. People born under Rabbits sign are believed to be artistic and sensitive. In some Native American traditions Rabbit is known as the Fear Caller, due to it projecting its fear of those wishing to eat it, and thereby attracting the predators it fears.

If a Rabbit lives in constant fear of being eaten by an eagle, then this increases the chances of this happening by sending out negative energy. The Rabbit should dedicate time and energy to becoming clever and cautious in order to outwit the eagle. If the Rabbit finds you then ask yourself whether you are worried or afraid of something. Ask yourself what the best way to handle the situation is. Are you able to let go of your fears? Is there a friend who is able to help you, someone whom you trust? Living with fear is no good for you.

We are able to realise what a good teacher Rabbit is in showing us that we are the creators of our lives with our thoughts and emotions. Rabbit feels fear and projects it, creating in the external world situations reflecting the inner world of fear. For us, this is an important lesson. Affirmations, involve focusing on what you want in life and positive outcomes. Thoughts have a certain energy frequency, creating a vibration aiding them to become reality. This is true when you think about and focus on what you don’t want to happen, a lot of the time we don’t even do this on purpose we do it automatically and subconsciously, gathering strength unknowingly. This makes it extremely necessary to bring our fears into consciousness – into the light, treating them with gentleness.

Rabbit possesses the ability of being alert and aware of its surroundings ALL the time. This can help us understand that we ALL have the power to create with our thoughts and to be aware of them. Let us redirect them on a positive path and be focused, not allowing our attention to become distracted by our intentions with negative emotions, especially from actualising our wishes and our dreams.

Spirit Rabbit

Untold and infinite stories of love
Brief moments will arise for us to grasp
Rays of moon and sun light gleam down above

We are humbled by our need to unclasp
Unpredictable life heeds no warning
Often we are left all alone to gasp

Day and night, evening and in the morning
We purr forward persistently beyond
While painting life a picture that’s adorning

Still understanding sadness will be dawned
Gravitating up and down we manage
Cultivating the pool of heavens pond

Healing bits within that have been damaged
Carried deeply within for far too long
Awakened to this powerful advantage

We hop, we bounce into what we belong
Untold and infinite stories of love
Written in the stars our journey’s song
Rays of moon and sun light gleam down above

The power to face our fears lies within us
We greet ourselves by accepting new ground
There is no limit, new growth is endless

Moving through life with stillness in our sound
Balance becomes an act that we perfect
In every moment courage will be found

There is no rhyme or reason to direct
Life plans now lay before our destiny
As we open up our hearts to connect

Spirit receives us with faith willingly
Every aspect of the universe lives
Awoken to our nature instantly

No longer terrified protection gives
An inner light to walk the path with springs
Now we are free from being held captive

Our souls uncaged can feel our bodies sing
The power to face our fears lies within us
Our arms open to receive what God brings
There is no limit, new growth is endless
