Master Bunny returns to the wild

Monday, May 25th, 2009

dandyToday is the day I let “Dandy” go. I know his name was originally “Cuddles” but he just loves dandelions and I think he’s a boy so “Dandy” seemed to be a better name. He’s now in the local refuge in a part that I consider to be pretty safe. The rest is really up to him now.

My dog, Chico, noticed him when he was out in the outside cage today and scared him so Dandy hurt his nose a little bit on the wire. I decided it was time. By my guess, he is now 6 weeks old, old enough to be on his own. He had been frightened by one of my cats and now my dog so I guess that prepares him to be careful of other creatures which may come along. But I did not want to take the risk that he would hurt himself by being frightened while “trapped” in a cage.

He’s taught me a lot in his time with me. We aren’t supposed to get attached to “forms” if we can help it. But this little guy taught me that it’s a pretty tall order for a human being to not be “attached” to a sweet little bunny that comes into their life. I tried hard not to tame him too much, for his own sake. That was also a hard thing to do. So I loved him from a distance, fed him his beloved dandelions, grass and milk and watched him grow up from a nearly naked little blind bunny to a strong healthy young rabbit.

I know he needed to be released to the wild though. Many people suggested he could be my pet! What kind of a life would that be for a cottontail rabbit who is born to be wild? I couldn’t do that to the little guy because I know I’d be doing that just for me and not for him. I did say a little prayer to keep him safe and sent him a bubble of energy to protect him. A few tears escaped when he didn’t seem to want to leave. This is his destiny and his life-circle. I’m so happy he graced my life with his presence and wisdom and taught me many lessons I’m still figuring out!

The little healer

abby09Today Abby was eating breakfast with us. She was having a “play-date” with her “papa”…her grandpa. She had a little red mark near her mouth, it was a bit chapped so I touched it and asked her “owies?” She said “no owies”

Then she looked at me and gently touched my cheek on my right side and said “nama owies?” and I was about to say no but then realized that she had seen that I had pain in that area of my face from my jaw. I smiled and said “can you help nama with the owies?” and she then brushed my cheek with her finger and said “owies all gone.”

She hasn’t taken any classes in healing. She is a true master healer as we all are before we grow up and forget who we are and what we can do. My jaw felt a lot better and I smiled and thanked her with all the love in my heart.

All we really need to do is remember who we are and what we can do to help ourselves and others. Master Jim Nance gave a talk this past weekend about becoming a “blank slate” like a child. He’s right! We just have to let our mind be as a child’s mind and allow the healing love to pass through us to heal ourselves and to help others.

What a beautiful little teacher I have been blessed with! My heart overflowith with love, joy, peace and gratitude for all that is.

Master bunny

wild-bunny-twowild-bunny-threewild-bunnyAs I see it Cuddles must be about three weeks old. I think he was about 3 days old when I first found him so he should be three weeks old today or tomorrow. He’s doing well and eating grass and his delicious dandelion greens.  He still likes his bottle a couple times a day and he is eating all fresh foods so he will be able to survive when he is released.

He is a “master bunny” in that he has taught me a lot in this short time. It has been a joy to learn from him. We do need to remember that any being and indeed anything that comes our way is a blessing and has a lot to show us about ourselves and life in general. I feel truely blessed by this little being in my life!
