Whenever you are outside in nature, it is a great fun to look at the animal friends that will come across your path. Sometimes these happenings are an everyday occurrence, but other times they will be unusual or get your attention in some way.
I live in an area where there are many wild rabbits, but they are often in hiding for much of the day. Friday night as my boyfriend and I walked to the grocery store, we saw six rabbits! First of all, this was the most rabbits I had ever seen in one day, and they were all together, like a little rabbit family gathering their food for the evening. They were really calm too, some of them came up to us and another one was sleeping only 12 inches away, he just opened one eye looked at us and went back to sleep.
Talk about an unusual experience. Rabbits are known for being fearful and flighty, but these were the most confident rabbits I had ever seen, plus they were so cute! Because we do have many rabbits living in the area, I see them on my walks from time to time, but last night’s sighting was definitely unusual.
Whenever you have an unusual experience with seeing animals, take a look at what they are trying to say to you. Rabbits are known for procreating and bringing in new life. We saw the rabbits just as we were talking about future plans for our spiritual work, coincidence? No. Message? Yes! To us it meant that the ideas we were speaking of will come to fruition. Exciting 🙂
Now, sometimes the animals will simply enjoy your energy, so if you have regular visitors to your backyard or deck, most often there is not a specific message there, other than to simply enjoy their beautiful energy. It is when you have a different experience than normal, or when you are asking for a sign, that messages can come through these interactions with animals.
Everyone has animal spirits that connect with them in different ways. These can be pets from current or past lives and also animal guides that can assist you. I have a raccoon for one of my guides, his name is Roscoe. My mom will tell you that when I was little I had a toy raccoon named Roscoe that I slept with every night. He was my favorite! I also am aware that whenever I see a raccoon that my animal guide Roscoe is there helping me to gather the guidance and materials I need to take the next steps on my life path.
You can also have animal guides to assist you with specific things in your life, like spiritual development, career or family. So look around and notice the fun ways that the animal world interacts with you. And, just like with anything else, the more that you listen, the more that the messages will reveal themselves to you.
