A thick patch of weeds on the knoll out front needs attention. The zealous weeds have pushed up through the weed-resistant cloth ground cover. The heat and humidity have put the project on hold. Although the view-spoiler from the sun-room is a daily reminder to do something. My ego advises, "Mow them down with a weed whacker. Do the deep uprooting later."
That all changed last night at dinner time. Something amusing happened. The universe sent an unexpected "helping hand" that taught a lesson on how all things work together for good.
This cute cotton-tailed rabbit hopped across the lawn and into the landscaped area. It stopped to nibble on the grassy mound. The levity of that moment brought a smile. And, also made me grateful that no hasty action had been taken to spoil the hungry little rabbit's dinner.
Rabbit is a sign of fertility and life. When I looked up the symbol for more detail, what a surprise to learn it means to wait (which I'd done with the weeds, ha!) "Look for fertile signs. If unsure wait. The answers will become clear within a month. Then movement is assured."
While waiting, the angels encourage us to spend time working with creative energy that brings peace and joy. Paint, write, sew, dance, sing, create...create... create. Add more color to your life by trying something new. It doesn't have to be in a big way, but just a little willingness to expand your daily routine and add a touch of joyful expectancy. We are all capable of letting moments full of light expand, spreading joy and love. Sadness and sorrow can also multiply, covering the sky in our life with heavy clouds. The rabbit brings a gift to turn light into life. Resurrection energy is at hand. Diving timing is always perfectly orchestrated when we are willing to yield.
Love and peace,
