Rabbit Rabbit

Well friends, it’s that time of the month again! You know, the one when we say rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit/! Have you said it yet? I put two rabbits in the photo today. I just felt like we all needed a little extra this month considering we’re in the home stretch of 2020! For some I know this has been a really difficult year. I think we have all felt the stresses this year, but I pray that we will find this last month of the year one where we feel a healing. Certainly with the holidays approaching we can find peace within and some holiday spirit to lift us up.

I hope that you are taking good care of yourselves for I think of you often. I am not on my blog as much as I have been in past years, but I hope that 2021 allows me more time to spread positivity and to connect with all of you!

Keep shining your heartlights! We all need to shine in this darkness and spread love and light.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit November 1st

Rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit!

Good morning dear friends! For those of you who know me, you know the first of the month is the signal for saying those special words in order to ensure good luck all month long! Have you said it yet?

It’s also All Saints Day on the Catholic calendar which coincides with the birthday of a dearly departed family member. It’s been many years since he passed away, but I feel his presence in my life often. As I said in yesterday’s post, I do believe in signs from the other side and have experienced many synchronicities and coincidences that are not able to be explained which reminds me that while loved ones may pass away, their essence, their presence, and their legacy remain in our hearts.

It is another reminder to me that we never know what the future brings and so I gently, but firmly, remind you to forgive, to love, to care and to shine your heartlights with much love into the world. We need more caring and kindness here and I know you are all blessed with an abundance of those very necessary traits! I am so grateful for all of you!

Shine On!

October’s Rabbit Rabbit

Happy October 1st, 2020! I was thinking of not posting my usual first of the month Rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit/ but then I started thinking that we may need all the luck we can get as we go into the Fall months with the virus, the political situation and all the unrest. So here we are!

The weather is turning cooler here making it feel like Fall has arrived, not only by the date, but by the weather indications. The brisk chill in the air is a lovely change as we begin a new month.

There are many people struggling these days with all different challenges. So may I remind you that I’m here for you and you are not alone. We walk through life’s journey together, aiding each other when needed, companionably without fear.

Keep shining your heartlights my friends!

Shine On!

September 1st Rabbit Rabbit

September 1st Rabbit Rabbit

Well dear friends, we’ve made it to September 2, 2020!  Pat yourselves on the back that we are still here.  I’m sorry my post is a day late, but better late than never, right?

Did you remember to repeat, “Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit” yesterday?  If you didn’t, then quickly say it now!  I think we need all of the luck we can as we begin the Fall season with schools starting.  I know that my family and I do!

How are you doing there where you are?  Are you and your family doing well?  Are your children returning to school?  How’s your job situation?  I know these are very uncertain times so please stay safe.

As for my Clover (you may remember my yard bunny and her baby), I haven’t seen them in quite awhile.  Recently we’ve had fox sightings and I’m wondering if something has happened to them.  Sightings of the silver fox and red fox have been more frequent so I am hoping that Clover and her baby are just not around when I am outside.  While I enjoy new wildlife in my vicinity (and have seen a baby red fox as well), I’m saddened by not seeing my special bunny.

However, Fatty, Mrs. Fatty and Skipper the baby (the groundhog family) have been scarce too.  I did catch Fatty running through the backyard the other day, so that was good.  We have chipmunks here as well who are very daring and scoot past me closely.  They are all just so much fun to watch.

Let me know how your wildlife is doing please.  I love to keep up with your special animal friends, so I hope all is well with them.  Of course, as always, I hope all is well with you and yours.

Keep shining your heartlights.  Stay in touch with your loved ones.  These are strange times indeed.  Let’s pray for a peaceful September.  God Bless.

Shine On!

August 1st Rabbit Rabbit

The Presents of Presence-8

Happy August to all!   Continuing the tradition, please remember to welcome this month with Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

I want to thank you for all of your love and kindness in response to my Mom’s passing.  We are still transitioning into the reality that our Mom is no longer here on Earth. However, I do know in my heart that her presence will stay with me as we were so connected and that is a bond of unconditional love that continues.  I am truly grateful for all of the blessings that have been bestowed on me by her love and the love that she had for everyone.

As the new month of August unfolds, I ask that you hold your loved ones close.  Speak with kindness and give from your generous hearts.  Receive the kindnesses that come to you with gratitude.  Pass along your smiles to all.  Spread love, patience and generosity of spirit.  Our world needs healing and healing begins with us.

I am sorry I have not been writing often, nor reading your posts.  Please know I have missed you all and hold you dearly in my heart.  God Bless.

Shine On!

White Rabbit, White Rabbit

It’s July 1, 2020 and you know what that means!  It’s the first of the month and time to say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a new month and for the first half of this strange year to be over.  I’m praying for the next six months to be better for us all.  Aren’t you?  Because we’ve been through so many different experiences that have been changing us all.  Let’s pray the changes are making way for the good.

How have you been handling this year so far?  I pray that you and your families are doing well and are healthy.  I know the struggles we’ve all endured so I hope yours haven’t been too harsh.  It’s not easy during this stressful time.  I hope you’re taking care of yourselves.

As for my Clover, I haven’t been able to get a good photo of her in awhile.  It seems that the other wildlife around the homestead have been more prevalent than my sweet rabbit.  But hopefully, I will see her again soon.

May your month ahead be filled with luck, health and joy.  May you and your loved ones continue to receive blessings and be grateful.  Continue to shine your heartlights dear friends as we begin the second part of 2020 and a new month!

Shine On!

June First – Rabbit Rabbit

June First

Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit  came to mind this morning as it does at the beginning of each month.  What once began as a little family tradition and a monthly post here on The Presents of Presence has diminished over time.

There has been much turmoil lately in our world and I have been not posting as frequently for some time now.  I have missed you all very much, but other aspects of my life have prioritized themselves and blogging as you know, has taken a back seat on my to do list.

The dense dark vibrations of this world continue, but the choosing to be of the light, to shine our heartlights as we are meant to, in the most peaceful way possible emerges and blossoms in this month ahead.  What is not of love will dim and what is of love will grow as we connect with our inner heartlights and radiate kindness, compassion, and understanding with peace in our hearts.

We shine the light on truth and goodness.  We hold sacred the loving space in our hearts, minds and souls.  We join together with those who resonate similarly with gratitude for the blessings of awareness available to all of us.  May truth prevail.  May love surround you.  May mercy and forgiveness be yours.  May peace reign.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit May 1st

Rabbit Rabbit may 1

Rabbit Rabbit! Happy May First Everyone!

This photo made me laugh since we’re in the midst of this quarantine and at some point, each of us has wanted to just get out of the house!  So, this May First I’m sending out healing that when we ease back into less restricted times, we will appreciate the little gifts of living and of course, The Presents of Presence.

Appreciate hugging family and friends when you see them.  Appreciate being able to take a drive in your car without threat of the virus.  Appreciate your health and freedom.  Appreciate all the little things that we may have taken for granted.

As a family, we have been blessed and I pray that you have as well.  So far, none of us have contracted the disease to our knowledge and we are hunkered down safe and sound in our home together.  We have bonded under the circumstances and been grateful for all of the blessings.

I pray that you and your family are healthy, happy and safe as well.  Please keep shining your heartlights and know that you are all in my prayers.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit White Rabbit April First

April First Rabbit

Happy April Fool’s Day!  Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

Well, here we are my friends.  It seems like a bad April Fool’s joke that we are all on lock-down with the CoronaVirus and the aftermath of terror that it has been striking in so many people’s lives.  But the truth of the matter is clear.  We are all quarantined in one way or another at this time in order to not spread the virus to others.

I hope this post finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.  We are doing well here although I do have to go to the food store at some point because we are running low on a few items.  Trying to get delivery or pick up times for grocery items has been sold out so there’s no other option except to go myself.  The last time I was in a store over a week ago, there were many empty aisles of shelving including for toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, bottled water and chicken or fresh meat.  The fellow shoppers were stressed and it was not a pleasant experience.  But today or tomorrow, I will go back to see what I can find.  How is it near you?

In other news though, the flowers have been blooming and I see the happy yellow daffodils swaying in the breeze.   Clover (the rabbit) has been out and about and does not hop away when she sees us anymore.  She is content to continue nibbling on her favorite green clover in the yard without worry that we will bother her.  Fatty the groundhog has been tamer as well.  He’s been out moseying through the yard lately and seems to have lost some weight.  The birds have been singing loudly too as well as the frogs at night.  It’s very early to be hearing the frogs here.  When I stepped out to bring the garbage out there was a little frog (the size of my thumb) on the door sill.  He didn’t even bother to jump when I walked over him.  Lucky for him, I saw him there and stepped over him so as not to disturb him.

I pray the new month of April will bring us all health and tranquility.  Stay safe my friends.  Reach out to friends and family.  Enjoy the simplicity of these days as Mother Earth heals a bit.  Stress and strain can wreak havoc on patience so try to stay calm.  Count your blessings.  Be kind.  Keep shining your heartlights. in the darkness.  Hope and love are key ingredients to healing.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit March 1st

rabbitrabbitmarch1

If you’ve been a part of The Presents of Presence for any length of time, you know what today is, right?   Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!  Come on, say it with me!  Did you remember this morning?  If not, let’s say it now!

I was actually up late last night and so at 12:01am, I said it before I went to bed.  But then I said it again this morning as I drank my coffee.  I figured twice in one day would make the month extra special and who doesn’t want an extra special March!

March is the month of Leprechauns and searching for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!  A lucky four leaf clover and all the joy that comes as Spring arrives.  Surely I’ll be seeing my little bunny (aptly named Clover) soon.  I’ve been talking about him for awhile so if you’ve missed it, you can see here that coincidentally on another March 1st I wrote about him and added a bunch of links to his photos.

I wish you all a month full of joy and the best of luck!  Keep shining your heartlights and take the time to notice the goodness all around you, especially in nature.  Soon we’ll see our favorite critters come back into our yards.  Who are you looking forward to seeing again?

Shine On!
