Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone.– Shannon L. Alder
Once Upon A Time
there was a whimsical Celtic goddess named Ostara. Among her many divine duties, Ostara brought spring each year.
One year, she was feeling particularly guilty about arriving so late. And to add on to her guilt, she found a little bird on the verge of dying from the winter cold. She simply couldn’t let the poor bird die on her watch. And so, she healed the bird’s frost bitten wings by transforming him into a handsome rabbit.
She named her new fury companion, Lepus. And in loving memory of Lepus’s former bird form, she gave him the power to lay colorful eggs once a year.
Come out of your cozy burrow and frolic in the meadow with rabbit spirit! Rabbit spirit teaches us that there is nothing like a burst of sunshine to get us up and raring to go. Your home sweet home may feel safe, but all the magic happens above ground.
Have you been sitting on a creative idea? It may feel scary to birth this one-of-a-kind idea into the world, but rabbit spirit encourages you to play outside your comfort zone.
Of course, it’s not all hops, carrots and colorful eggs! Rabbit spirit also encourages you to take a sacred pause for contemplation. A little introspection does wonders for understanding the root cause of our fears.
