White Rabbit, White Rabbit

8A004497-7147-4D93-8FFC-BF1129E61CEA

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 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!

February 2020 White Rabbit, White Rabbit

February2020WhiteRabbitWhiteRabbit

I can’t believe it’s already the first of February of 2020!  Happy February!  Have you repeated Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit yet?  Well here’s your chance dear friends!

Isn’t this a sweet white bunny out in the snow?  I found the photo on Canva as I usually find my photos there and I am eternally grateful to the photographer since this is such a great Winter Rabbit photo for today!

I hope that your February is filled to overflowing with love, health and happiness!  May your heartlights shine and sing out your songs of love.  Hold your loved ones close and never forget to say the blessed phrase, “I love you!” because those small moments matter more than we ever realize.

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit July 1st!

RabbitRabbitJuly1st

Welcome back to a timely Rabbit Rabbit starring my favorite little outside bunny Clover!  While she’s not white, she’s so sweet and not afraid of me, which of course, makes my heart sing with joy!  We can sit quite companionably outside in the sunshine without her fearing me.  I have seen her with another bigger bunny recently, but that one and I have not met yet.  We shall see.  Perhaps we will have baby bunnies here?  Wouldn’t that be luck for the month of July!  Imagine all those pattering rabbit feet hopping across my grass!  I can only imagine how delightful that would be!

I hope you all have a lovely month ahead filled with all that this wonderful life has to offer.  Stay present and kind.  Shine your heartlights.  Be grateful for what we have in this present moment and allow the presence of peace to be yours.

Shine On!

Happy Belated Bunny

happybelatedbunny

I’ve been remiss in writing lately.  It’s been busy here and I missed our Rabbit Rabbit for the month of April!  I’m so sorry!  Did you miss my friendly reminder?  Did you remember to say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit?  Well, here’s your reminder for May!  Make sure you say it!

This is Clover, my resident bunny.  This was taken in April before the spring garden cleaning, hence the sticks and tall grass.  Since the photo, we’ve started getting the yard ready for Spring.  Have you started too?

Clover has grown and it’s so great to see her out and about now that Spring has sprung!  She’s not fearful at all of me which I find endearing and I’m careful not to scare her either.  However, her friend Mr. Grumpy Gopher (at least that’s what I think he is – or maybe he’s a groundhog?) doesn’t stick around to see if I’m going to talk sweetly with him.  As soon as he sees me, he scampers off as fast as his fat belly allows him!

Do you have a lot of wildlife in your yard?  I’ve been hearing the birds lately too, especially the cardinals.  All the fun of Spring growth is here and I can’t wait for the warm weather to not just tease us but actually arrive!

Here come the May flowers!  Keep shining your heartlights!  We need all the sunshine and warmth that our hearts can share!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit March 1st

Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

With snow on the ground and some in the air, what a way to begin March!  As you may remember, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb!  But since it’s March First, you know what we do here – say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

Traditions are comforting at times.  There’s something about a fresh start every month to light the way, especially as we await Spring.  Of course, every day is a fresh start, every moment can be a fresh start so that’s not all that unusual.  I think it’s what you make of the fresh start that’s important.  Don’t you?

So today, as with every first of the month, I say, Rabbit Rabbit to you all!  May the coming month be filled with love, light and luck!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit February 1st!

rabbitrabbitfeb1

Well for those of you familiar with my blog, you knew what post I would be delivering today, right?  Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

I like traditions, but I also like spontaneity.  I woke up this morning to a text from a dear friend reminding me Rabbit Rabbit!  It put a huge smile on my face to begin my day!  Isn’t that what friendship, traditions and life is all about?  Thank you ML!

We’re very chilly here and I’m snuggled up like a baby bunny in a blanket!  I hope that you are warm, healthy and happy wherever you are!  Take a moment to remember Rabbit Rabbit – it will put a smile on your face and who knows?  Maybe it will bring you extra luck this month!  We could all use that, couldn’t we?

Keep your heartlights shining!

Shine On!
