Oh, my dear Wise and Loving Bats!

I have always loved bats. I think they're so special, so magical, so adorable. I love their secrecy and the way it feels like such a prize whenever I get to see one. The way in which they exist - how their whole existence depends on their ability to sense energy waves - is so inspiring to me. I aspire to feel the universe around me to even a small degree that comes naturally and necessarily to these special friends. I find bats to be true teachers - their use of echolocation is a beautiful example of the power of vibrational energy and the truth of physics and the science of earth and existence. And what magical creatures they are! So selective and self-protecting, yet daring and brazen in the face of survival and what I imagine might be a naturally programmed joy of life. If you have ever spent time watching bats feed, I think you may know what I mean! These mystical creatures are not only awe inspiring and critical to our environment, they also happen to be incredibly adorable 😍! And there are so many documented species to adore!

For years I have been collecting images of bat portraits and drawing them for fun. As I was perusing bat portraits one day, all I could think about was their sweet and beautiful little faces turning to me and telling me little aphorisms and axioms. It seemed obvious to me in that moment that these friends were coming to me so that they could take on the role of Teacher and Friend to people other than just myself. I found myself adding to each drawing a saying or mantra that is meaningful to me. These are words and phrases that I collect as they come into my head. They are phrases that come to me, words that often feel like a gift more than an intentional manifestation of my thoughts and feelings. They are intuitive messages that push forward ideas and ideals that I believe in and believe can help other people find love, peace, and happiness! And who better than a sweet, wise, and loving Bat to deliver the message?

Once upon a time, it was common practice to carry calling cards - basically a business card for a person instead of a company. These cards would often have just the owner's name and title, or sometimes simply a saying or quote. One would give their calling card upon meeting a new acquaintance or when looking to extend their personality. While much less common now, calling cards are a great way to share a message and leave a lasting impression on anyone - whether you've only just met them or known them for years.

These cards can be used however you'd like to use them! Some ideas:

:: Hang them up! Frame them! They are art after all :)
:: Give one to someone on the train who looks like they could use a hug
:: Put them on your altar as intention reminders
:: Write love notes or lunch notes on them
:: Write your own intentions on the back of the cards
:: Use them as thank you cards
:: Keep them in your wallet/pocket/notebook
:: Leave them in library books for strangers to find
:: As an excuse to talk to your new crush

PS - The Bats THANK YOU! - When you purchase this item, you help to keep Bats protected! All of the Wise and Loving Bats were drawn from photos by the incredible and indispensable Merlin Tuttle, one of the foremost experts on Bats and their behavior and life - as well as one of the biggest champions of Bat conservation and education. He has done an incredible job of documenting hundreds of species of Bat, as well as fighting to save entire species from extinction. With each photograph, he manages to capture the personality of every bat he snaps. There are cheeky bats, somber bats, silly bats, sweet bats, wise bats, freaky bats - every visage seemingly an echo of the archetypes we know so well in our own Human lives. His images are truly remarkable, and every time I see one that moves me I just have to draw it. Please be sure to take a moment and check out his amazing work sometime he really is someone to be lauded and admired! For each set of Bat Pack Calling Cards or Bat Pack 1" Button set purchased, I will donate 10% of the proceeds to Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation Organization. I will make a donation four times a year.
