White Rabbit Medicine Symbolism
by Amanda Linette Meder
When I was a little girl, I was given a pet rabbit by my parents, as the very first thing to care for that was mine and all mine. As a child of four siblings, having something to hold that was just yours is a big honor, and I took that honor very seriously.
Then one day, as I was cradling my little bunny in my arms, who was stark white by the way, he flipped out of my hand and leaped long for a kitchen chair.
They say that his neck broke upon impact. It was Thanksgiving Day.
The symbolism of the rabbit is one akin to the messages shown to us by Alice and her Wonderland.
His appearance is meant to bring us alert us that we are now entering into a journey unknown, a journey that will carry us through the path of our own fears, onto a quest of knowledge, and out on the other side.
Letting go of fears and distortions of reality
The rabbit and his appearance to you symbolize the letting go of fears, ideas, and as a message to drop the seriousness of life. His appearance is an invitation to think, act, and consider seeing things from the new perspective, that of the other world.
What has your perception of the present reality as it is, been hiding you from seeing?
What distortion have you been told by an elder, that it is now time for you to release from your senses?
The white rabbit shows us the paradoxes and the perplexities that we live in, and this allows us to lighten up as he guides us see things in new light.
The white rabbit message to us that no matter how dark the path, and how twisty the turns, you can have fun by being engaged in the mystery along the way. The world is a mysterious place and the rabbit asks you to just laugh at the madness as you traverse through it with speed and wit, to the great open space of freedom from fear.
Awakening of the healer
The white rabbit is the harken of the shaman, the healer and the one who holds the torch.
Its appearance is the awakening of the inner healer.
“A long time ago - no one really knows how long ago it was - the rabbit was a brave and fearless warrior.” - Jamie Sams
Being white, little, and fast, these qualities enable you to travel through even the most difficult and rocky landscape, while still being seen by others. Do not worry that your journey into the dark world will not allow your light to be seen by others. The white rabbit tells you that you are still white as a bright light to the all outside world and all who look on.
It is only the world around you and your immediate perception of it that is dark.
The world of dark is truly the world of deep understanding and knowledge. This is because it is only here where you learn to see, feel, and sense through life using all of your senses. And in doing this, you find true expansion.
Old Patterns Being Released
Both the dark and the white rabbit appear to show you your strength and to remind you: see the wisdom but to remain objective from the madness. Those quick, curious, and adventurous like Alice, will be the only ones who follow you to where you are going now. Everything else will all but leave you behind.
The rabbit symbolizes that fears, old habits, and old partnerships are dying now, as new perceptions are being introduced.
Given the rabbit’s life cycle is a short one, the rabbit journey often reappears more than once through a single human life. If rabbit is your teacher, you will go many through new stages of healing, evolution, and awakening to a space anew.
Short turn around
The rabbit is a sign you are evolving and more alert than ever.
Given the rabbit's gestation period is 28 days in length, this level of quickness in birth will apply to the change you are undergoing now. This journey you are on now will likely occur and reach completion within a single lunar cycle. With rabbit symbolism by your side, know there is a rapid, but deep change that is occurring now.
Move forward and through what you are facing now, be confident that you will come out on the other side. Rabbit symbolism calls in a time of rapid transformation.
