Rabbit I’ve got the keys now

Yesterday I discovered the frozen, lifeless body of my sweet little rabbit, my Animal Guide, lying under the big pine tree in my back yard. She froze to death in this year’s very harsh Chicago winter of sub-zero arctic temperatures. Naturally I was devastated. rabbit medicine teaches courage She has been my Animal Guide for several years now and coached me on how to outrun predators by running to and fro in a zig zag fashion, how to hop, leap and jump over obstacles, how to harness the fertility of my creativity, and how to face my fears.... [Read more]

Keep looking for what you need

Sometimes we hide things about our true selves and our true nature because we are afraid of criticism and rejection. We censor our comments and thoughts, we hold back, we stay in the shadows, afraid to stand out. Or, we agree when we disagree, we smile when we don’t want to.

But it’s crucially important and a true lesson in empowerment to surround youself with only those people who care about you, who allow you to... [Read more]
