I received notification of this when I went back online after my sabbatical and I thought I would share for anyone that was following this, worked on getting it through, and share a love for rabbits.
You might remember my post and the dream that moved me to share about it:
Well, I’m happy to share that there was a victory with this and Marcy Schaaf, the founder of SaveABunny (who I met at a San Francisco VegFest and later visited to provide Reiki for the bunnies she sheltered, which is how I came to adopt Joy quite magickally), had a big hand in making this happen.
Here’s the announcement that came out on September 15, 2015, while I was offline during my time away:
Since my personal path is linked so much with rabbits and continues to grow in this area as far as what I feel called to do, this is very meaningful to me.
Of course I’m vegan and so all souls in animals bodies are important to me. This is just one of many compassionate steps that continue to unfold, as shifts in consciousness happen.
Thank you to all who worked hard at making this change.
I had no intention of posting again until I return, but this really is part of my calling to share. And it’s very odd, as I also didn’t share about a third dream where Nestor (my departed rabbit companion in this life) came to me AGAIN last night.
I was just talking to my mom and shared the dream with her. I said this is the third time she shows up and this time she came in as herself (well herself in this life that we shared). The first two times she came as a dolphin and a lioness. This time she was the gray bunny that I knew, but unlike the other two dreams I had, the interaction we shared was different and her presence and demeanor was solemn and stoic.
I think I know why now, as my telling my mom the dream prompted her to tell me something in return.
In the dream I had two little spiders. One very tiny and one about an inch or two. And the weird thing is that there was a cage they were kept in and I thought it odd that they didn’t try to escape, but stayed in the cage, which was lined with hay.
Nestor then appeared and I saw into her eyes, but her presence was different. I didn’t know if it was because she was adjusting to being back into her very limited little rabbit body, or something else?
She went into the cage with the spiders. Another odd thing, because I never kept her in a cage and she would never have tolerated it, as she is so freedom loving.
And in the cage she did yet another odd thing. She placed her paw just above the larger spider, gently touching it, but not pressing and kept it hovered there for a while. It was as if she was doing some sort of healing, magick, or alchemy, as well as sending me a message through the symbolism.
Of course the spiders represent transformation and sometimes literal death – also rebirth, protection, fate and creation.
Then I remember her running out of the cage and in the room once around and then at some point in the end, I was holding her to my chest.
But again, the energy was very odd and solemn, although I loved seeing her, I knew she was the bringer of some message. And our uniting was not necessarily one of joy, but I clearly understood she was there for a mission – to impart something important to me.
Now, some of this does feel to be personal given things that have been going on and what I asked for before sleep, but I can’t also help but realize the synchronicity of her showing up and leading me to this information.
Did you know that wholefoods now sells rabbit meat? What’s next?
My mom said she saw it in the Reno store and couldn’t believe it. She also told me to brace myself.
I was not aware of this, as I don’t shop there anymore, but my heart sank deeper at this news.

And here are ways you can help and spread the word, along with a lot of questions and answers that are informative, including the domesticated breed they are selling – which is not wild rabbits: http://www.saveabunny.org/stop-whole-foods-rabbit-meat#petition
The link shares that “Selling rabbit in Northern California stores is a pilot program that Whole Foods intends to expand into other regions. It is likely that other grocery stores will seek to copy the Whole Foods model and sell rabbit. These other stores will likely seek out less expensive sources with even lower standards.” And apparently that has already happened, since my mom is in Reno, NV. 😦
