May 2021 Energy Update with Lee Harris


While I’m still immersed here in very full days and unable to get out blogs at the rate their themes seem to be coming in for me, I just wanted to pop on and share Lee’s latest Energy Update for May, as I know many of you find them supportive. I also just received a cool surprise today that I’ll likely share next week as well about one of my pieces of artwork I mentioned last year.

But for now, I always love hearing of the synchronous tie-ins of messages from Lee and others that mirror what I receive, as it always confirms how connected we all are and riding the energy streams together. Although we don’t need any proof of support or connection, it can be a nice little wink to feeling that alignment.

The first synchronicity in his message was one that likely may sound like a broken record now – the importance of self care.

I actually started a blog post that’s half done on the theme of wellness, but won’t get it out likely until next week. So, hearing Lee’s theme “Self Care the Superpower” was a little smile nudge for why I felt called to have it up for this month.

As Lee points out, this is not a luxury and not about going to a spa, but about small daily acts of self care done throughout your life that will prevent burn out and the need to take huge down times. By making it your rhythm, he shares, this results in what helps you to feel and emanate your light for yourself and out in the world. And this includes not just looking out for yourself because of outside stress, but about your relationship to what you’ve thought was the world shifting.

Other themes you’ll find in this Energy Update include being on a new energy track, the emerging road ahead for visionaries, division energy, May into June energy, and sovereignty.

Lee says if you feel disempowered, speak your truth, be who you are, stand for what you want to stand for on Earth. Influence things differently via the energy you bring to the world.

The division we’re experiencing of people standing in the black and white narratives provides no room for gray, multi-dimensional potentials. We’re moving into the need for the gray.

And a reminder to be here as fully as you can in life with everything you engage in, as you’re not promised a certain amount of years, days, or time in general. Do what you can now to make life richer for yourself and those you touch, directly or indirectly. I’ve seen this as a repetitive message screaming out loudly since December with people leaving this world in surprising ways and close calls that are wake-up reminders – just heard of another yesterday. We only have here and now, so live it in a way that you don’t have regrets as to what you spent your time and energy focused on.

Lee shares that May’s affirmations are:Β 

“I allow myself to call my power back.”

“I invite the power of my soul to join with me now.”

Enjoy!

Welcome February with Lee’s Energy Update


Happy February! This is my birthday month so it’s always clarifying for me of the themes ahead and today, Imbolc, is always a special day I remember each year because it was my twin soul’s birthday – you know her in her rabbit form as Nestor.

And with a new month rolls in new highlights for us to navigate the days ahead by. Lee comes to us once again with beautiful lighthouse nuggets.

You may be tired of hearing about it, but yes, self nurturing continues to be key. Lee stresses the utter importance of active, regular self care and how it simply isn’t a luxury. If you don’t put this into place, the shifts that are continuing to unfold collectively are going to continue to force you into a corner instead of you aligning with the upgrades more harmoniously. I’m seeing this with clients and students who are receiving the not so subtle nudges in this direction. Change can be made easier and quicker when we take action toward the messages coming our way.

Lee also touches on a lot of great energetics including how manifestation and creation energies are getting stronger by the day, chaos is serving a purpose where the rise of consciousness is concerned, and how we’re learning what true connection is through all of the challenge.

Here’s Lee:

November Energy Update with Lee Harris


A supportive video from Lee highlighting what his guides share about November being a “major month for healing, personal clarity, small acts of peace and more.”

I think this will be a helpful video to revisit as needed throughout this month, while things start unraveling in the collective.

The end of the video has a clip from “Connect to the Cosmos,” which feels like an expansive invitation to more possibility – and personally perfect given this time of year is so connected to my rabbit, Cosmo, and his passing four years ago, yesterday.

As shared on his website, you’ll find these themes discussed in the update:

  • 2020 Fatigue – a lot of emotional unravelling as people get to the end of their patience and/or ability to cope with their stress.
  • Personal Clarity in the midst of Outer Confusion (The positive sides of an outer world in chaos – you learn who you REALLY are)
  • Major Month for Healing (Emotional and Physical)
  • Shockwaves and Revelations (particularly toward end of the month)
  • Painful Truths and Soothing Truths
  • Illusions and Lies Revealed, Explored and Shared in the collective – Remember that our REACTION is everything when it comes to β€˜what happens next.’
  • The Quiet Magic can be found everywhere – How is your relationship to Stillness? (It’s where the power and the reset can be found.)
  • Flow or Structure? Do you create structure in order to flow, or do you flow and let structure appear through that? Many are experiencing the opposite to their norm where this is concerned.
  • Small acts of peace – they are GALVANIZING right now.

September 2020 Energy Update with Lee Harris


Today is the last day of August, as we approach the Pisces Full Moon of the 1st/2nd (depending on where you live) to kick off September. A great time to check in with ourselves and review the last month, while making adjustments for the upcoming one.

Based on what I’ve heard from many of you, I think you’ll find Lee’s insights to ring in – especially those of you experiencing physical symptoms as responses to the changes being assimilated.

Lee accentuates how listening to your creative impulse is important, regardless of whether or not you can see or understand right now how it fits into things or could possibly make a difference. Creative energy is also visionary energy and ideas. It doesn’t only have to be a physical creation that you produce, yet that energy is vital to keep moving.

I also love his insights around “visionary activism,” as that is where my energy has resonated most of my life and has gone very misunderstood or even devalued by others, especially if they were more of the “reactionary activists.” This new form has felt very much needed in the world and as Lee says, “You can’t fight fire with fire…you need to do something different.” I feel this will be a welcome evolution, as it anchors more over the years to come.

And yes, there will be continued chaos showing up, but remember that chaos just IS. We’ll be moving through some more, as we can’t move beyond it without moving through it. So having your own sense of balance and center is important.

That couldn’t be more accurate, at least in my personal experience.

For most of my life I didn’t have a sense of myself, my center, my purpose, and for sure I didn’t have balance – as I was a much more extreme swinging person, largely in part because of my boundaryless existence that could easily be swayed by any underlying currents I subtly detected and as a way to counter-balance those swings.

I worked hard to stand in my own power and realize my own value, and I still work hard at maintaining that, but it has and DOES make a huge difference.

Synchronously, just a couple of days ago I had literally expressed to faery sister Laura during a different context of texting, “There’s so much happening out there…I’m grateful I’ve found my center. I’d be a mess if I hadn’t figured this out, especially with the external stuff and huge contrasting dichotomy of everything around. I definitely know my purpose is to anchor middle and I won’t sway.”

So, yes, there will be some new energies moving through us this month, but Lee shares that if you feel overwhelmed then that’s perfect and important to embrace. This, then, is a time to heal for you…not do out there.

The full theme overview Lee addresses in his video include:

  • Major Energy Shifts – Physical Symptoms
  • Twists and Turns continue – Nothing is quite as it seems
  • Creative Surge continues through September
  • Reactionary Activism to Visionary Activism – DOWNLOADS AND SHIFTS
  • Karma and Consequences for Dark Energy Intent is now at Work
  • Deep Presence Revealing itself – Relationship shifts
  • Linear timelines gone astray – multidimensionality and the power of dreams
  • Stay as steady as you can – steady is where the power lies
  • Conflict energy will be depleting – the veil is thin so the fire of conflict is disturbing to your energy field

Wishing you a deepening September.

 

Lee’s June 2020 Energy Update


I’m sharing Lee’s June Energy Update for the month, as I think the more guidance we can get in these challenging times, the better. Sending everyone a lot of love and a big hug of understanding for what ever you’re going through right now.

May 2020 Energy Update with Lee Harris


Especially in these current times I feel insights like these can be of support to help navigate what you’re experiencing. Even if you don’t spend time tuning into what you’re feeling, just listening to something like this can trigger an activation within that can plant a seed for when you are ready. A-ha moments are flip-switchers.

Here’s Lee with the current energetic landscape including these themes:

  • The deep end of coronavirus
  • Truth surfacing
  • Fine tuning your values
  • Volcanic to the tender
  • Upgraded listening
  • People pleasers identity crisis
  • Rise of the hero archetype
  • Allowance and acceptance
  • You are love and you are loved
  • The chaos has a design right now

We’ll be back tomorrow with Ask Astrid Fridays.

July Energy, Celebration Sale & Mini Update


66036040_10218978683445236_2776467353502744576_o.jpg

Happy July everyone! We have a Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Cancer tomorrow, so there’s a lot of potent energy working behind the scenes alongside the shifts you, like myself (and Astrid), might be navigating through. You can learn more about this month’s energy via Lee and his energy forecast below.

To celebrate and renew, beginning tomorrow the 2nd through the 7th to include 4th of July Freedom Day, The Magick Rabbit will be having a store-wide 30% off clearance sale, which puts many items at crazy below cost prices.

Click through link below to explore and shop what calls to your heart:

The Magick Rabbit Etsy Shop

Could even be a great time to get in any pre-holiday shopping too, since we’re already more than half through the year. Sounds wild, but it’s right around the corner! Time is flying like Faeries! πŸ˜‰

Also the perfect time to snatch your favorites up – like the magickal little themed worlds that have been inspirational for so many.

We only have 15 mini rabbit gardens remaining from around 50 first created. We likely won’t be creating more at this time, as we have a lot of new items to keep us busy for quite a while in our spare time.

We sold out of our first batch of Magick Rabbit Talisman crystal necklaces, but there’ll be more down the road.

Alongside mini gardens, there are five original Magick Rabbit paintings, prints, three notebook journal options remaining, and greeting cards also to choose from.

I’m not sure when new items will get into the shop, as from here on out I can only create in my spare time since I’m switching focuses right now in my life. I’ll be sure to let you know when anything new hits the shop though – likely they’ll be one at a time, or in small batches, as I won’t be able to do full shop updates like I have before.

I continue to take time for myself, am getting a lot of nature, physical outdoor activity, garden and Astrid time, and inner work in, while I reconfigure my life. I’m exploring how my new schedule will look and what is going to be on the agenda, but want to finish anchoring in things and feeling alignment with where I go from here. I know what some of it looks like, but am waiting to see the last pieces that could even involve a service of sorts being available.

If you’re on Instagram, I’m also going to be be opening up some art auctions for some of my animal paintings so keep an eye out there – maybe even starting today – with 50% proceeds going to rescue rabbits.

We are still taking some what of a break from regular blogging, with just some updates now and then like we have this and last week. There’s just so much percolating and a lot of energy and feelings to navigate, that it doesn’t feel right yet. Plus, there’s just not enough time in our days right now.

I’ll leave you with Lee’s energy forecast for this month, as I know these resonate a lot with many of you and are helpful and inspiring.

Once again, this month’s theme is so synchronous for me, as just yesterday during our Tahoe Herbivore’s Meetup hike, I was talking about extremes with a fellow hiker, how I used to be an extremist, and even posted briefly about this reflection on my Instagram. And of course, up pops Lee discussing this. πŸ™‚ Even the very specific three topics he gets into were exactly what we discussed.

I sure am doing a lot of reflection, grounding, and while moving energy through my body a lot, am also being very present and still in terms of not making moves and decisions in my inner and work realm, as things are moving so fast that it doesn’t feel right to jump aboard the first things that pop up just yet.

Definitely giving things “time to land” as Lee shares.

In his video below he explores Surfing the Extremes through these three dualities:

Alignment and Rejection

Elevation and Depletion

Realization and Reflection

Wishing everyone solidity with your journey.

June Energy Update with Lee Harris


I feel this one will speak to a lot of you right now.

May has flown by, but I’ve definitely been experiencing the contraction before expansion that Lee reflects here, and the full circle moments.

Which of the themes are coming up for you?

Whimsical Wednesdays ~ The Artist’s Corner: Nature’s Art Reflects Living Life Beyond the Veil – Beltane Peace & Heart Potential


59234789_10218435768312697_8152201248997638144_o.jpg

I don’t post blogs as often these days, and mostly stick to themes when I do, but now and then I feel to share something that nudges me and today is one of those days with the energy in these photos coinciding with Beltane today.

Two days ago I went on a short evening hike out back by myself to take a break from manuscript work to connect with nature. The weather was lovely and warm and the air held something different in it. I took these photos, as the light called me.

Each time I looked at the sunlight peeking through the trees I would see tiny, fast shooting gold filaments, but the photos later revealed the unusual feelings I had.

I didn’t pay attention to Beltane approaching, but it was obvious the thinning of veils had already begun.

You can feel the dance of faery and sprite energy in the water, light, and forest. Faces and beings staring back at me all around.

59244060_10218435768832710_1849018828638388224_o.jpg

But you can also actually see the light revealing what appears as a separation of dimensions – a veil parting ways.

59452335_10218435769232720_4657231453656973312_o

The light this day was glowing differently and illuminating in unusual ways or radiating like an arrow.

58701319_10218435769752733_6150394306038333440_o.jpg58870310_10218435770112742_4918463854364590080_o.jpg

56938187_10218435770712757_9162954487088807936_o

You can see a golden ray shooting out in this one that then shifts into rainbow light that splits in two strands into the water.

After the couple of weeks of warming here, yesterday brought a cold day on in the middle of it with temperatures dropping to the 40’s after 60’s and sometimes even 70 degrees here in the mountains. Clouds moved in and out, winds blew in, and at the end of the day a very light veil of tiny snow flurries came down. Just barely enough to see with the naked eye, but did not settle. It appeared like an armada of faeries surrounding the house and created that separation effect of dimensions.

Today we are back to warm sunshine, as if the cold never was.

58571077_10218435770432750_5343188866708799488_o.jpg

An interesting intermingling of Sacred Masculine and Feminine energies dancing back and forth, as the veils lift and harmony is revealed.

I’ve always loved this image of Cosmo out back in our yard where we used to live. To me, it is a beautiful reflection of his Sacred Male energy in total harmony and embrace of the Sacred Female embodied in our Earth Mother, Terra. The epitome of this precious dance of life and creation in its fertile abundance and purity.

spring blooms.jpg

Beltane is about honoring life at this peak period of Spring unfolding into Summer when everything is blossoming with potent and abundant fertility and the conception of ideas, intents, and dreams are ripe with potential. We become pregnant with opportunity for renewal, growth, vitality, passion, and joy that offer a chance to bring hopes, dreams, and ideas into active fruition.

The faeries remind us to have fun with it all and not to forget that a time for play is much needed too.

Look around you at the landscape of sprouts and buds vigorously reaching for the Sun and dancing in the breeze. They remind us to bring forth the depths of our hearts into the light even when we think there’s no reason to ever shine that again.

If even just to feel the sunlight dance on your skin and dreams, so be it.

Nature reminds us that everything has a cycle and now is a time to take up that joyful part of your secret world you keep only to yourself and nurture it a little bit more.

Today is opportune to set forth intentions and promises to yourself and ask for assistance, as you take an active step toward what ever it is you would like to see more of in your life.

I plan to do another little hike out back today and spend some sunshine time to ground in my own peace and clarity.

I have to giggle, although had slightly gasped, as a spider again just scurried along the edge of my desk by my arm as I typed, making his way for my keyboard.Β I scared him with my quick pull away of my arm and as I just wrote that he was running down my tapestry in front of me. πŸ˜‰

You might enjoy Lee’s Energy Update for May to kick off this month and help you to hone in on the intentions you’d like to focus on more and even ask nature, the elementals and faeries to assist with.

Lee talks about both a continued acceleration and grounded peace and heart energy that are dancing together right now. He speaks to a new wave of people awakening to greater awareness than they have before in different ways and will be more ready for conversations they weren’t open to in the past.

Heartfelt conversations are more possible with the willingness to allow your heart to find different ways to engage others.

He also talks about “happiness as peace” which speaks to finding more ways to bring through your joy into life as a means of creating peacefulness. Any little thing that brings that to you is valuable even if something small like sitting outside listening to the birds, cleaning, shutting off electronics for a bit, reading a book, taking a walk, doodling or painting, laying down to day dream….bringing forth more stillness and self-care creates peace, grounding, and greater fulfillment.

April Energy Update from Lee Harris: Unexpected Events, Creative Energy on a High and The Past Meeting the Future


Today is a blog outside of my series themes because it feels important to share. This month’s energy update really rings in for me from Lee and I imagine will for many of you as well. I’ve noticed in the last week or so this anxiety energy emerging alongside the peace I feel. It made me want to linger in the void and even literally stay on the plane in between our vacation destination of Miami, where we were the last week, and our home in Tahoe. West to East to West I traveled and experienced extremes in altitudes, weather, and energies. Literally feeling like traveling between pasts and futures and reviewing thoughts of each as well and having them meet. It had my head throbbing upon return, trying to integrate the fast shifts I felt happening and the energies my sensitivities were picking up.

The trip was unexpected, as we were supposed to have friends visit, but cancelled last minute. With vacation days already booked we felt the Universe was telling us it was “us” time to prepare for the new momentum, and so we stayed the course of self-nurturing. The trip took its own twists and turns, as we were originally set and booked for Cabo, but found out my passport had expired in December and Dave’s was lost. It land-locked us in – an odd feeling for me, as I’ve had a passport for as long as I can remember – and had us having to change plans literally the day before leaving upon discovery of this. Obviously big reason to have this happen, as it is so unusual.

We did end up having a big downtime of literally doing nothing much but beaching it, nature, nurturing, and good vegan food, which was more necessary than I realized.

Huge surges of creativity coming through, but that sense of whoa! and feeling it blast through so much and how powerfully shifting it will be, which had me on edge and paralyzed to not want to budge forward or backward. But interestingly, also completely at peace with it at the same time and knowing there’s nothing to be worried about. I’m taking the nurturing steps to support myself through it, as I can feel how important it is to keep moving forward and take things to the next level of completion on this spiral.

There will always be new spirals and each one will seem challenging, but life is ever-transforming and expanding. It’s part of growth.

Synchronously my knee injury – MCL tear – has gone through a very quick healing process because of this slowing down, self nurturing, and staying the course it put me on. At just 4 weeks I’m back to regular activities, which is highly unusual given the type of injury that takes normally quite a while to heal. It’s still mending, but is not causing challenges – simply mindfulness and steady, deliberate, forward momentum.

This week, while we were away, we focused a lot on ever-presence, gratitude, savoring, and meeting everything with love. Talking things out and finding ways to invite even more joy and peace in.

Interesting also that we were just 2 hours from Bimini, and if we’d had our passports would have ventured there for a day since Dave has never been. As I sat on the beach looking on on the Atlantic Ocean, I could feel that Atlantean energy from there and these waters was coming to me instead and there would be an upgrade with throat and higher heart energies rolling in on the waves and winds to assist that growth to move forward and repattern things and release from things.

So this anxiety felt to be individual in feeling at a precipice of huge change, but also how that repatterning is connected with the collective, as with sensitives, we know we pick up “others” as if our own stuff, alone.

I also noticed “shadow” themes resurfacing in a new layer of peeling back the onion. Big big shifts that will bring up a lot of discomfort and even perhaps ugly feeling or looking things temporarily, that speaks to not having to continue to dwell in those old feelings, but how we can revision the new. This involves finding peace with now and focusing that desire for change in recreating what we want to experience, rather than continuing to look back.

So yeah, the three themes Lee talks about were certainly coming up this week during reflecting and made me smile in hearing his reflective message.

Definitely a new shift forward is happening now and there are ways we can move through it with greater ease.

My sharing this is about how I have and am experiencing this in my own way, as demonstration of what Lee shares about here:
