Welcome back to the Re-Enchant Your Life Podcast with me, Rebecca Anuwen.
We’re back to give you some inspiration and to get you using your intuition.
Today, we move on to the third card in the SHEro toolkit and that card is The Hare.
Before we move on to that card, I want you to think of your question.
What questions do you have in your life right now, big or small that you want answering?
And then we’re going to use the cards today to give you the answer that you seek.
The Hare – Embrace New Beginnings
I’m going to read from the guidebook of The Toolkit to tell you more information about The Hare.
Then I’m going to pull another card to give us another look at the energy of The Hare. And I’m also going to pull a charm again, to give us more information and to layer the information that we’re collecting.
I’m going to give you my ideas on what that means. However, it’s your interpretation that is far more important. Hopefully I’ll say something that will just get you inspired and get your thoughts in order and get you clear on what it means for you.
Take my insights and guidance as that as guidance. It’s not truth. It might be my truth, but it’s not your truth. This podcast is here to inspire you and to get you connected to your truth.
Now that you have your question, what do you think of when you think of The Hare in the toolkit?
I’ve written down that it’s a time to embrace new beginnings that are often seen in spring. They’re associated with Easter, new beginnings rebirth, but what does a hare mean to you?
The guidebook says no matter where you find yourself, you can always start again.
Hares are a reminder of spring and the promise of a new day, fresh opportunities and the eternal renewal of life. They’re quick to change and adapt and they take leaps of faith.
Does that give you any insight into your question?
The book continues, The Hare reminds you that you can choose to change. It tells you that no matter where you find yourself, you can start again and embrace a new beginning.
People often feel like they have to stay on a particular path because they’ve committed to it or they’ve been on that path for years.
But no matter where you are now, it’s completely okay to wipe the slate clean and start again. The familiar is comfortable, but when did you last stop and ask yourself whether your current path, your actions and belief were actually still true for you?
Do they still light you up and deeply resonate with you?
Have you outgrown them?
Are you ready to move on?
There’s a huge difference between giving up and starting over in the right direction.
Giving up implies a sense of defeat. Whereas, fresh starts, and new beginnings are filled with hope, opportunity, and possibility. They also ask you to embrace the unknown.
It takes courage to start again. It’s not always the easy choice, but it’s often the right choice. The work you’ve put in won’t be wasted. All of your experiences, add to the rich tapestry of your life and give you more wisdom to draw upon and more stories to share. Trust your heart in this very moment.
Take a moment right now to trust your heart, to put your hand over your heart, to engage with your own body and just ask yourself, what is it that you want to do? What is that choice you’re being asked to do?
And the SHEro action says, say yes to a new beginning.
Where in your life do you feel called to make a fresh start?
What do you know needs to be changed?
Maybe you need to stop one thing so you can start something new.
Stop holding onto things that hurt your no longer serve you. Instead make room for things that are aligned with you and support who you’re becoming.
The affirmation: I give myself permission to start something new.
When you think of your question, what do you need to start something new? What’s asking for that fresh start? What’s asking to be, let go of, to make way for something new?
Now I’m just going to shuffle the toolkit cards and I’m going to draw a second card to give us more information on to embrace new beginnings. So the card that’s come up is the apple to share your knowledge.
ADDITIONAL CARD: The Apple
When you think about starting new beginnings, how can you share your knowledge?
Is it a new adventure you’ve been asked to start to go on? Something that’s going to require your knowledge and your experience?
When I think of an apple, I think of the teacher, the Teacher SHEro, the priestess, the person holding space in a community.
Are you being called to work with people? Is that the new beginnings, perhaps actually the new beginning could even be you seeing yourself in a different light, seeing yourself in a different role.
What comes to mind when you think about sharing your experience?
And then if I have The Hare which is card number three, and the apple is 33. So we have 3, 3, 3.
Perhaps the number 3 means something to you, creating something solid, something well balanced.
I’m just going to pick out a charm and it’s going to dig my hand in my charms and the charm I just drew was the heart and the handbag, they both wanted to come out at the same time.
It’s a rather large heart with flowers in the middle of the heart and it’s a little red shiny handbag.
Again, the bag reminds you have everything you need. If you think of the fools knapsack in the tarot, it’s like everything he needs for his journey is within that knapsack.
ADDITIONAL CARD: Heart and Handbag
The little red shiny handbag is the same color as the apple. And that red shiny handbag is telling you, you have everything you need, but most of my charms are silver or bronze so the fact that this is red and shiny, it’s like to be vocal, to be seen to, to be noticed, a little bit showy almost.
You know I was talking about The Apple being like the priestess or the teacher, that community leader it’s like to be seen, and when we put those together and, of course, with the heart card, coming from a place of love, coming from a place of passion to take a stand for those things that are really important to you, when you add in to embrace new beginnings, to share your knowledge, to be seen, to be witnessed and to lead with your heart and your passion, how does that layer into the story, into the question that you asked yourself?
Can you see how bringing the various cards and the charms gives us the chance to layer in more information, it weaves a bigger web of a story?
We started off with just it’s time to embrace new beginnings. We bring in the apple and it’s like, oh, to embrace new beginnings where you take centre stage with your own knowledge, you’re sharing that knowledge. And then of course, we get our beautiful red handbag.
The handbag is super cute and like I say, it’s shiny, it’s very attractive. It’s there to be seen as there to be noticed. I do have like a very plain bag and I have a knapsack in the charms, but this is the showy handbag. This is the ‘look at me’ handbag and with the really big heart with the flowers in it, and again, I have various hearts. This is the biggest heart and it has the flowers in, the flowers of growth of sharing of celebration. Again, they could be spring flowers, they look slightly like daisies.
It’s like new beginnings or following your heart, following your passions.
How does that resonate to your story?
How does all of that information tie back, and what parts feel relevant for you?
What parts sparked your own stories, your own interpretation of that information?
We have a hare, we have an apple, we have a heart and we have a handbag.
What story do you create with that?
Do come and share with me either on social media or drop me an email, let me know what came up for you and your question when you look at those cards.
Thank you for joining me. I’ll see you again very soon for another episode of the Re-Enchant Your Life Podcast, where we’re going to continue spiraling deeper on our journey together, where you’re learning to trust your intuition so that you can make better choices, ones that are aligned with your truth, your energy and your deepest desires. Until then have a fantastic time.
