Thumper Brings Rabbit Wisdom

This was something so amazing and to many probably unbelievable that I’m kind of pinching myself yet for me it felt so real.  As I was sipping on my sacred cacao, Thumper…yes, Thumper, from the Walt Disney movie, Bambi, came for a visit.  I also sensed the messages that were received from him are part of a theme many may be experiencing at this time. So let me share what Thumper’s messages are. Only you will know if it feels right for you.

As Thumper came into my space, I must admit I didn’t think he was for real.  He immediately said to me, “Oh, many do not think I am for real yet here I am.  It is the Animal Daeva that sent me to you just like Cecil, the lion, was sent (read more here about Animal Daeva and Cecil, the lion.)

One of the first things Thumper pointed out was his ears.  He said, “The Disney artist didn’t quite get my ears right.  So I’m showing you another aspect of my ears.”  When I saw his ears the first thing that I sensed was that these ears are like a radar and could pick up on the tiniest of sounds. He said, “I use my hearing to listen closely and it helps me to be more aware. Being a listener can teach you so much.”

Then he went right into his next message as he said, “Be sure you look before you leap.  When I leap I have sensed out the right direction to go and then I go full force with lots of joy.”  He then continued on by saying, “Be sure to check your own feelings.  Pay attention to this and don’t let anyone sway you in another way that is opposite to your feelings.”

What I was sensing from Thumper was he was picking up on an energy out there of impatience, impulsiveness, and hurriedness.  It could be due to the lockdown we have been experiencing and wanting to move out of that.  The way it has come to me is calling it the new normal and taking in what have we learned over the last year about ourselves and our world.  It’s taking those lessons and bringing that into your own true direction.

The last image Thumper gave me was seeing a beautiful field of wild flowers.  Then I saw his rabbit body rise above the very tall wildflowers as he took a leap.  Then he disappeared into the field.  He took these leaps a couple of times with a joyful gusto that tickled my heart.  His last leap he turned around and gave me a wink. He then said to me, “Call on me anytime you need rabbit energy.  I am so happy to help you along the trail.”  

So I’m paying attention to what Thumper’s messages are with listening deeply and being true to my feelings.  Then with gusto taking those leaps with joy in the direction that has recently been given to me.  How about you?

Love, light, peace, and happy joyful leaping trails!


p.s. Thumper asked if I would please do an art piece with him and Cecil together.  Of course, I said yes.  It feels like a joining of that lion filled-with-courage heart and the rabbit joyful-true-direction leap…enjoy!

Cecil, The Lion, Speaks

Through guidance each morning, I have come to open up my special, protected space for whoever or whatever wants to come in during my sacred cacao time.  Recently, I had a most magnificent male lion with such an attractive golden mane and coat show up.  

He came to the center of the space and then plopped down on one of his sides.  He then immediately began to roll on his back swaying from one side to another as he pressed his back into the ground.

Ah, I thought he is continuing the message I have been receiving to connect and sit on Mother Earth.  This guidance has been coming through enough times for me to immediately sense what was going on here.  What also came through was that the Cat Animal Daeva (click here to read about this) sent this lion to me.  

As is my habit, I asked the lion what was his name.  I heard the name Cecil immediately.  OMG!!! Is this the beloved Cecil that received worldwide attention for being illegally killed in 2015 in Africa? I knew in my heart that it was.  

I asked Cecil if he had a message he would want to share.  I heard him say yes.  He then said in a deep slightly growly voice, “As you can see I am a lion and I bring lion heart healing medicine.  Now, look deeply at my chest.  Can you see my heart that shines there?”  As I focused in that area the most illuminated, radiant heart came into my sight.

I then saw and felt his filled-with-light heart beam into mine.  Teardrops flowed from my eyes as I felt a deep, powerful energy soothe and comfort my heart.  He continued by saying, “I want to share this lion heart healing energy with others.  I want to remind them of their own lion heart energy.  It is this energy that will help strengthen them.  It will help them take the next step in their life.”

He then asked me to share his message and to bring an artistic style into a picture of him.  He then ended by saying, “I am Cecil, the lion, and I bid you  lion heart love medicine from my heart to yours.”

I cannot fully express how honored and humbled I was to have Cecil, this most auspicious lion being, come into my space and share his message.  I hope I was able to capture his desire for you to feel his lion heart healing energy.

Lion heart love, light, peace, and happy trails!


p.s. my goal is to have this art piece of Cecil printed out, framed, and placed on the empty wall in front of my computer.  I was wondering what was to go there after the picture that was there fell down.

Where Did the Energy Go?

Last month I hosted along with four other members of the Animal Communication Collective™(ACC), a Zoom fundraiser for three animal rescues.  From the very beginning, I felt such an enormous amount of Universal Energies supporting this event that at times it felt overwhelming.  The energy high before, during, and after the event was electrifying and I literally was buzzing from it. Then I noticed about two weeks afterward I had what I’ll call a huge energy slump.

At first I attributed this slump to the time change – you know that jump one hour ahead thing – that happens around the Spring of the year.  I had virtually little to no energy, no motivation, no desire to do much of anything.  The guidance I was receiving was to REST.

The one thing that helped me to kick up my heels and not do much of anything was observing my cat, Thomas.  He doesn’t have one adverse thought of napping, sleeping, or lounging as much as is needed.  Also, I was reminded of the message I heard when the coyote said to me, “I know how to take care of myself.”  (To read more about What the Coyote Said blog, click here.) However, when this feeling continued  into a second week, it led me to reconnect to my inner guidance.

Immediately, one of my spirit guides came forward and asked me to remember what it was like when I started doing animal communication readings in class.  It then started to come back to me that I, along with many of my classmates, felt extremely tired after doing a reading. It was explained that as you expand your intuitive muscle, it is normal to feel tired.  Also, as you continue to flex that muscle you will notice you become less fatigued.

My spirit guide then said that your intuitive muscle and your human body vessel was greatly stretched way beyond the norm and that I was in a recovery period.  Not only that, I was informed that there are new light energies coming to the Earth especially around Easter.  When this occurs there is an integration of those light energies.  My spirit guide went on to say that it is important to pay attention to how you are feeling and to give yourself more self care especially getting extra rest during this integration period!

Wow! This is all making so much sense and I realized how important it is to relax into a restful recovery and integration time.  I have come to know that when I am going through something others are experiencing something similar.  If this resonates with you, I hope the guidance I have been given can be of help to you too!

Love, light, peace, and happy trails!


p.s. After an absent of about a year, I have been experiencing the return of heart palpitations.  Again, I feel it’s part of a process of recovery and integration and it also alerts me that I need to rest!

p.p.s. I also want to thank all the members of ACC especially those that participated in the fundraiser for their support which made this event a success! Also, a big thank you to Judy Pearson, DAPS, who coordinated with the other two rescues.

The Garbage Bag and Can Teacher

How can a garbage bag and can be a teacher?  It all started with the numerous snowfalls we have had in my area.  The snow would slide off the tin roof and deposit small to larger piles around my home.  Normally these piles of snow do not cause any problems.   

However, when it came time to pull the garbage bag out to place my trash in it for pick up, it was frozen to the bottom of the can.  A nice pile of snow had formed around the garbage can from the sliding snow off the tin roof.  No problemo…I just got another garbage bag out of my stash and used that.

This continued for a couple of weeks with no signs of the bag becoming unstuck.  Then it occurred to me to move the garbage can to a sunny area in hopes it would unfreeze the bag.  No luck here since now the garbage can was stuck in frozen snow!

I tried to dislodge the garbage can and realized it was securely stuck.  I realized how tired I had become from trying to do this and I then felt a nudge to let it be.  My intuition was telling me just be patient.  I was sensing there would be an easier way of dealing with this.

I then came to realize that this situation was a metaphor for what I was personally going through.  I was working on letting go of old thinking and beliefs. I now could see how a garbage bag and can could be the perfect symbol for that.  I knew the message was to be patient.  An easier way would be presented and to trust in that.

The solution came in one quick intuitive flash as I was parking my car.  In the rear view mirror, I could see the garbage can. What I did (through that flash) was to continue driving slowly backward until I nudged the garbage can out of its frozen place.  I then heard a small popping noise and the garbage can was released and free again undamaged.  

Amazingly, it was like something inside of me did the same thing…pop then release.  Strange as it may seem, I felt a peacefulness come over me. I embraced that feeling and said thank you for how the solution came about in such an effortless way.

It was now possible to move the garbage can into a sunny spot and by the end of the day, I was able to pull the garbage bag out of the can.  One thing did surprise me.  It was the huge chunks of ice that clung to the bottom of the bag.  I felt those chunks represented fears within me that kept me weighted down.  With some shakes, the chunks fell off and now could easily be melted by the sun.  As I watched the smaller chunks melt away, it felt like my fears were melting away too.  All of this brought on such a relief and a feeling of lightness.

What did I learn from the garbage bag and can teacher?  To trust my intuition, be patient, and there is no need to exert more energy than what is needed.  A better way of dealing with things…be it big or small…will present itself.  Also, to remember that the most average things can be an avenue for learning even if it is a garbage bag and can.

Love, light, peace, and happy trails!


p.s. I also want to note that ever-so-sweetly cooing pigeons spent time on top of the frozen garbage can (which hadn’t occurred before).  That melodic sound gave me the feeling of peacefulness as I patiently waited for a solution to be known to me.

Eagle Spirit Guide and Rescue Fundraiser Event

I have come to experience and know that there are spirit animals available that are here to love and support us. This became reinforced when I was given the opportunity to discover in one of my animal communication classes who my helper animal would be. Since that time, I have been introduced to a variety of spirit animals that are helping me.  

Here’s a little bit more about spirit animals.  First, it is a belief that a spirit animal will choose you and that they are a teacher or messenger.  They come in the form of animals to support you with lessons, protection, wisdom, balance, etc.   One can set an intention to have a spirit animal introduce themselves to you. Then be watchful as to how a spirit animal may pop up through books, movies, songs, dreams, and in a variety of other ways.

Spirit animals have come to me in my meditation time or they just appear in my mind’s eye.  How a spirit animal enters your life and works with you may be completely different than for me.  A spirit animal knows you and will know the best way to help you. That brings me to the most powerful spirit animal that has appeared recently in my life.  

It all began when I visited one of my spirit guides (an ascended master Native American Chief) in my meditation time.  As I entered his hut, on his outstretched right lower arm was the most regal bald eagle I have ever seen.  He quickly announced that this eagle was for me which took me by surprise to receive such a gift.  He then asked me to extend my right arm as he motioned to the eagle to fly to my arm.  

What caught me off guard was that the eagle felt as light as a feather on my arm.  A little pun here but oh so true!  I saw the eagle’s eyes lay a loving look at me that melted my heart.  It then came time to take a ride on the eagle’s back (how wild is this!).  As we flew above Mother Earth, he (I sensed it was a male eagle) showed me how to focus on small details as well as how to focus on the wide vision of things.

All throughout this ride I felt the strength, power, dignity, solidness, a wisdom that was coming from the eagle.  That feeling then started to surround me as I began to feel a part of this magnificent animal called eagle.  It made me think of how America has a bald eagle as the Nation’s animal and how we so much need eagle medicine right now.

As I reflected on this amazing experience, I thought about how I came to experience such things in my life.  For me it began as a desire to know myself and the world around me at a deeper level.  This desire is the reason I was drawn to animal communication. 

Everyday I’m more amazed by how much support we have available to us. There are those times I forget this yet I am reminded by experiences that have me opening my mouth fully with a ‘oh my God!!!’ coming out!

Love, light, peace, and happy trails!


p.s. I asked the bald eagle what its name was and he replied, “Baldwin.”
