Astrid didn’t need a costume, as she embodied the perfect Halloween bunny last night with her mysterious dark brindled coat of shape-shifting markings, silver toes, belly, and tail, and a Crescent Moon eye. I took this photo of her last night right after the sun set and my auto flash went off, which not only captured two giant orbs around her body, but caught the light just right creating a red and gold Moon in her eye. I’m guessing that Cosmo and my other bunny loves wanted to make an appearance. Astrid was definitely in a calm zone, not wanting me to leave her and kept nosing my leg to get my attention and transfer energy. She was definitely comforting me with my Cosmo thoughts.
I’d just finished my first run-through of reading my book from start to end, since completing it, which included a first round of simple edits and cutting my superfluous writing down 23 pages so far. That felt perfect to complete on this special day, which had so many connections to Cosmo and much more. I still have more rounds of editing to go – it’s quite a process – perhaps completing by end of year (my goal) before it will be in a form for feedback from others.
For now, I remain the only person who has read any of it and that feels perfect in remaining true to my voice.
This is something my bunny loves have taught me the importance of…remembering my song and singing it.
It was a quiet day and evening, which felt perfect for honoring my sweet Cosmo, tuning in with my bunny loves, and for focusing on the other joy of my heart – my book.
Even the sky reflected this calm and mystery in a perfect Samhain sunset of orange and black clarity.
I snapped this photo before the one of Astrid.
The veils were definitely thin and the love was definitely strong.
If you didn’t believe in magick, Astrid’s here to help with that. She keeps revealing more and more of her brilliance through the dark Mystery that she is. Just like each of us have a lot of untapped and/or unknown magick and alchemy within to bring forth, as we brave the watery abyss of ourselves. As you look into the portal of her reflection, know that it is only because you have the same within you that you can see it. Our hope for you – Astrid and I – is that you remember who you are, return to natural harmony, and live in the integrity, purity, and beauty of that essence always. Shine on and keep singing your song. We love you!
Astrid continues to tickle me with her unassuming magick and wisdom and the ingenious way she peels away layers of herself when she feels to. I’ve said from day one that she is slowly going to reveal herself and that she isn’t at all what she seems. She is definitely the embodiment of multi-dimensional expression, housed in a robust and mysteriously beautiful rabbit body. I’ve come to see that she embodies more of a wild rabbit essence rather than a domesticated one and while she’s enjoying the sensuality of being in her body and exploring what that feels like, she’s much more off-Earth than here. When I peer into her eyes and feel into her spirit it is as vast as the Cosmos and as wild and free as the once untouched gardens of Earth’s realms.
It’s fun to see her experiencing things in such a fresh way and I love that wisdom she carries through these fresh experiences. She reminds me of the incredible Snowshoe Hares I fell in love with in Montana that carry the same energy.
I love the photo above captured of Astrid inside of the hay box. She couldn’t wait for me to finish her daily cleaning and prep and just jumped inside of the hay box before I was done getting it into hers. It reminded me of her being in the fields and meadows where wild rabbits roam.
She feels right at home now with everything and truly is a happy and mischievous one.
I love seeing her run and jump with excitement and can literally feel not only her joy exuding in those exuberant leaps, but can also feel the energy she is moving and the Cosmic stardust and Faery dust she is sprinkling around.
Astrid has learned to jump on the bed now and since then she will jump up on my side to come say hi in the wee hours of the morning during Faery time to wake me. She actually jumps right up beside my head and proceeds to nose me with whiskers tickling my face. I love it!!
And what I also love in the photo I shared here, is the position of the heart above her third eye with the bottom of it pointing directly there – the alchemy of Cosmic Love and intuitively guided vision merged.
As one friend recently said, “I always get the feeling she knows so much more than she’s letting on….she’s being gentle with us.”
Astrid gives a mischievous wink.
