Wisdom from The Fairies and Me

A Talk with Grandmother Spider by Ryan Saenz

I found myself standing by the tree of knowledge on the hill in the meadow of my quiet place. The lush green fields spread down to a tranquil stream that bordered a forest. This is my place. I take in a deep breath when she walked up to me from around the tree. Grandmother Spider smiled softly at me as she approached me in her latest form as a tall slender elderly woman. Her solid black eyes were larger than normal, with eyebrows made of three smaller eyes.

“Why do you fight this change?” She asked, her hands folded calmly together.

“Because I fear the unknown.” I replied.

“But you didn’t fear me when I arrived before you as a giant spider.” A scene of when we first met flashed in my mind.

“That was because we are one. Our essence is the same.”

“If we are one. We are the same essence. You should understand how we are also the divine. We are the both the dream and the dreamer. Connecting and Creating to the whole. The web of abundance is also the web of the divine. The web of the whole.” She brushed her hand through her silky grey hair, looking at the meadow.

“Connection to the whole? If I am connected to the whole, how do I activate it? So that I may accept and know what it offers?” I said in a mixture of confusion and frustration.

“You see connection and activation as separate my child.” She stretched out her hand and touched my cheek gently, “Only ask. Send out the vibrations of hope, love, and faith. We will answer your request and prayers. Ask, know, and feel. It will come.”

Grandmother Spider offered her hand to me, as I took it, she pulled me gently down as she continued to speak, “So many times I speak to you and others, so often how it falls on deaf ears. First we must quiet your mind, and reconnect you to the world around you. Sit.”

I sat next to her, feeling the cool grass beneath me.

“Look around your, see the clouds, feel the breeze? Place your palm on the earth, and close your eyes. Feel the pulse of the ground as you touch it. Like the strings of a musical instrument, so are the vibrations of the earth, this is the web I speak of.” She gestures out to the field, “This is what you connect to when you need to ask us.”

Placing my hand on the floor of the earth, I feel a rhythmic pulse. A vibration like a hand on a drum head as it is struck steadily. Soon the blades of grass start tickling my hand as they vibrate, and soon I can feel the world around.“Feel the ripple of energy and follow it. Feel it pulse not just away to everything but through you, know and feel how it is a part of you as you are a part of it. Things are changing, as they always are. The world is constantly in motion to this rhythm you feel beneath your hands and in your body. Currently there are big motions set in place. The people of the world want to move this world’s vibration into one of better harmony, or a different frequency, we’re not just talking a simple perspective shift, but a total paradigm change. We are moving and preparing for the third great change. People need to know that this shift is working. That we are moving from a place of fear and pain, to a place of unity and love. In America you are seeing it as the Occupy movement. One voice becomes a hundred. One ideal becomes a movement. This is the change that is being evoked in our hearts. We as a whole are ready to start moving to love. This change is happening elsewhere in different ways, and different levels. All over the world people are starting to say, we are one. We are all connected, we are the whole.”

Looking up as she is talking, I see the sky light up with thousands of stars separated at first. As she continued to talk they split, one becoming two then 4 then more and more, until eventually the sky is filled with millions of tiny balls of light. They almost made the sky look like a white screen of light. One of the lights flew toward me, and as it got closer I realize it was a glowing dragonfly. It looks at me and says

“Remember me. I am the beacon of light. I am what we need in everyone, but only need for one to embrace me. Light up and they will follow. Connect to the whole.”

The Fairies Perspective on the Riots

I have been hearing about the riots that started in London a few days ago through various news channels and from friends online who are living there. I decided it was time to connect with The Fairies and get a different perspective. What follows is my conversation with them:

“I am here to ask about the riots in England, especially London, Birmingham, and Manchester. Many have lost their homes, property, and some have lost their lives. Countless people have been injured. It seems like senseless destruction that has no purpose even though I know all is Divine. Can you help all of us watching it happen, and all those experiencing it happening, gain a better perspective? Or at least some hope?”

A group of Fairies are present. An answer seems to come from the group but in one voice. “You must first understand that this creation has been slowly being built for thousands of years.”

“Do you mean hundreds? I know our time is often different then yours.”

“No, thousands. It is a cycle that humanity creates of oppression and intimidation that builds till it comes crashing down into chaos and then rebuilds to do it again. This particular cycle is happening not just in what you call England but all over the world. People feel fed up! They feel betrayed by the ones they thought served and protected them. They feel pushed around, lied to, and sold out. These people, which are the majority of Humanity, have a few ways they can deal with these feelings. One is to rage, riot, and violently lash out as you are seeing in London. The problem is that this leads to others feeling oppressed by those who are lashing out and then they will push back which creates more chaos.”

“I must say you are not making me feel much better.”

“What you all must realize is that this outward manifestation is a mirror for what is personally going on inside for all of you. The best way to diffuse this energy is focus on the parts in you that want to riot and burn it all to the ground. This energy has surfaced because it must be faced and released. It will only continue to build till it violently explodes into your life and creates destruction. This is a time of honesty. Be honest in yourself so that others can be honest with themselves so that the world can start operating in integrity instead of illusive deceit. Sometimes it takes chaotic destruction to crack reality open to a better loving way. That is what is happening here.”

“I know for many it is hard to forgive and be loving to those who they feel are destroying their town or home. Do you have any advice for those people?”

“It is not the time to be loving and forgiving to those who are lashing out. It is the time to be loving to yourself. Do what you need to do to be safe. Do what you need to do to stand in your power. Claim your sanctuary and hold that space. There will be a time for healing, love, and forgiveness very soon, but now is not that time.”

“What about us watching from the outside? Anything we can do besides face what’s inside us?”

“Do not under estimate the power of focused intent. Pray, meditate, create circles, or whatever way you connect to the Divine and align the Earth with that energy. We are doing are best to contain and diffuse the energy so it will do as little destruction as possible. As we have said before, this is a time of destruction, for structures to topple, and the old ways to be over. Humanity has to experience this chaotic destruction to be able to evolve and move forward into a new time based on love. Humanity has been creating this in its Divine knowing. As the individual you need to accept this time as it is, for what it is, and move through it.”

“Well thank you Fairies. I appreciate your perspective and help.”

We all must face what we feel trapped by, inside us or outside us, to help move along the energy that is manifesting. No matter how little or weakly you feel it. No matter how intimidating or insurmountable it feels. I hope you will also join me in sending love, light, and peace to all those experiencing the riots from any side of it. Peace be with you all.

You’ve Got Your Health

“Health is not the managing of disease but the experience of ease in life.” – The Fairies

I believe our society has been defining, redefining, and manipulating the concept of health. Health has become one of two things; the absence and repression of symptoms of illness or the management of symptoms of illness. Why is it considered healthy to be on multiple medications to feel “well”? There are many people who may not have physical symptoms but live a life full of stress, fatigue, worry, and fear. Do you think that is healthy? The thing I find the most disturbing is an ingrained belief in our society that someone who takes care of their physical, emotional, and/or mental self is being selfish and irresponsible. That someone who chooses to sleep over doing “that chore”, have a true day of rest, or call in sick should instead push through with medication, if necessary, and be “productive”. I know there are people who use illness and self care as an excuse to escape life and responsibility. I don’t advocate this and it is different then what I am talking about. What if you gave yourself a day a week of rest? What if you did it once a month?

We have become a society that pushes ourselves to accomplish more and more so we end up with a hollow feeling of success. We pack our day full of errands, meetings, events, and work so there is no time to spend with those we love, prepare real healthy foods and eat them, or time to just relax and feel ourselves. When you take a moment to feel yourself you know what your true needs are. Feeling yourself is the best way to get in tune with the Divine that lives within. This is the base of yoga, meditation, and most healing techniques. You cannot be your “best” if you don’t even know yourself. This is another step in being seen. When you are healthy and in alignment then others will see it. If you are hiding from yourself then you are hiding from everyone else.

Beltane Ceremony ~ Fairy Wishes

I was asked on my Facebook Page for a Fairy Spell for Beltane. I am not one for traditional spells and I strongly believe in discovering your own connection and your own way to work with The Fairy Realm. That being said, I do love ritual and felt like this was a great time to ask the Fairies for direction for myself and those who would like to connect with them at this sacred time of year. I was told the following instructions:

Find a flat stone or small dish and make sure it is clean. Place a nice helping of honey on it. On a piece of paper right down the three issues you would like solutions to; the ones causing you the most worry or stress. It can also be things you perceive as blocks or you just would like to have shifted. Near sunset place the honey outside (even on a window’s ledge). Then say “Fairies I offer you this as token of my gratitude for your assistance in (read the three things you wrote). I trust your wisdom and will follow your guidance.” That night burn the paper as a symbol of release. Then enjoy a spoonful of honey straight or on toast.

Remember that our blocks on prosperity are our blocks on our personal power and joy. Use this ceremony to connect with these powerful beings and the magic within you. Trust your intuition as you face these issues afterwards. Sometimes that inner knowing is our guides talking to us.

Happy Beltane! May your Days be full of joy, prosperity, and peace.

The Disaster in Japan is a Way to the New World Order

As we take another step in a tumultuous year it leads us to another disaster. I am talking, of course, about the many events in Japan. The Earthquake which led to a very physical shift in the Earth’s structure, followed by Tsunami, followed by volcanic eruption, followed by a problematic nuclear reactor seems almost more like a bad story plot for an action movie then a real life occurrence. Yet here we are watching live on TV, Youtube, Twitter, and any other way we communicate these days, the events unfold. Many I talk to feel informed and yet powerless to help. We see this happening and our hearts break for those going through this but many are not in a position to financially or physically do anything. So I did what I know I can do. I got a perspective from the Fairies about the situation and advice on where we can focus our thoughts and our energy.

I am instantly met with thunderous laughter. There is a crowd of Fairies all around.

“We keep telling you that you are in a time of great shifting. That there will be chaos and intense times and yet you are surprised at every event that is happening. Do you get it now? This is the time of great shifting!! Chaos will be prevalent on the Earth!”

I am little taken a back by their attitude, “But many are experiencing great fear, pain and sorrow. It is hard for us humans to hold the larger perspective when facing such devastating events. Can you help with ideas on how to focus our energy or shift our thoughts and perspective?”

I see a gentle, wizened grandmother type gnome’s face, full of compassion, as she steps out of the crowd. She has a sweet smile. “It is like you are all children. You are experiencing something beyond your comprehension and control and this leads to the fear and pain. Yes, these events can feel horrific, but they are greatly needed to release all this old junk that it is in the way for your new. It is time for a new approach to these ‘disasters’ you experience. You can lend aid, but stop trying to save others. It is like you are running around trying to put out fire after fire but never stopping the cause. Do not ask ‘how can we fix it?’ but instead ask ‘what can we replace that with?’ The reason these events happened in Japan is because they are the most innovative in their approach to replacing things. This ‘disaster’ will lead humanity into a completely new way of living. Humanity needed this to happen in the place it happened to completely rethink how you experience your planet and how you live on and interact with it. Japan is a bridge between the East and the West and will bring both cultures into the process.”

Next a tall slender Blue Fairy steps forward. He is dressed like a great pianist about to play in the finest concert hall, but all in blue. “It is time to get into your fear. Where are you still unsafe? These are the places you are not making authentic choices. These are the places you are not listening to your heart, or intuition. It is time to start shifting your own life, before you are too deep in the chaos. The old ways of navigating your reality are no longer smooth, easy, or the way to do it. Find your way in your world instead of trying to fix the old world of someone else and trying to make yourself fit in it. Life begins again each day. Meet it with a fresh perspective and an open mind and heart.”

A yellow pixie flies up to my face and is almost standing on my nose. She says, “You can either look at the chaos and destruction and think, ‘oh no what will we do, how horrible!’ or you can think, ‘Wow what an amazing clearing of old. Now we have the space to create what we have been blocked on. Now we as a global community can start anew.’ It is all about your focus.”

A large regal Fairy appears before me and seems to command the very air we are breathing. “Do not think we are making light of a serious situation. We are showing you the silver lining. Open to the positive to clear away your tears. See the light in what feels like dark times. This will help you shift gently. This will heal that which was already wounded and has now surfaced to be cleared.”

I thank the group for their wisdom and “come back”.

A Message from the Fairies on 2012 / The Current Transition We Are In

The Faires had asked my good friend Llynya and I to receive a message about 2012 to share with others. When they asked it felt like it was an important message about the energy of this time we are in and what we see manifesting. So, on March 5th, 2011 we set the space and I channeled a message from them. The following is that message:

“There is a lot of fear, worry, pressure and intense focusing on 2012. Now you must remember we do not experience time the way you do. 2012 is an energy for humanity.

It is a human time frame. It is a human experience.

We want this to be clear because there is so much around the divinity of 2010 as to whether it is apocalyptic or euphoric. So, whether it is apocalyptic or euphoric, it is being seen as an act of God on the planet. The truth is it is about the planet shifting into its God Self. It is about humanity discovering its divinity. It is not something happening to the planet from the outside. It is about everything from the inside surfacing.

So, what you have been experiencing is that process already started. All these things that have been kept under cover, that have been kept in denial or have been trying to hide from view are now at the surface and being seen. That is on many levels and in many places.

The thing Humanity needs to remember is that at your core you are amazing, divine, loving, beautiful Beings. And that core is what is coming to the surface. It is having to push all of this other out of the way so it can see the light of day.

This is a message to stop the worry and to stop the predictions and the fear. It is not what is going to happen in 2012. It is what is happening right now. You are in this time of great house clearing. The more that each of you individually connects with that core, the easier it is for Humanity to push this other out of the way and let the light surface.

Also, remember you are not alone. We are here to help with every step of the way.”

Command Freedom

I look at all the protests happening here in the US and in other countries and think; yes, here it is. This is the shift we all have been talking about. When people come out of denial, stop being pushed around, and command that they be empowered! This is a spiritual uprising. This is a time when every voice is being heard not just by itself but as part of a larger chorus. It is no longer acceptable to be a victim or be victimized. We will not tolerate abuses of power in any form. We will not bow to what was once the status quo. Just because something has been does not mean it should always be. Structures are falling and it might just be time. We have shrunk the world with the internet, and cell phones, and social media. We now see the people of other states, countries, communities, etc. It is no longer some distant place or object that is just an idea fabricated in our mind but living breathing people that you can watch, that share their thoughts in black and white, and connect with us. It is one thing to hear a news story about what happened in Egypt; it is another to hear their thoughts and see their videos. It is time to see the people in the world instead of the countries. It is easy to vilify a group it is harder to vilify a person, especially when you are shown them and their life. It is time to focus with compassion on how to rebuild our world. All the old paradigms are toppling and falling apart. Let’s not try to remold the same structure. Let’s not paint it a different color and call it changed. It’s time to focus on compassion and rebuild from a place of love. What would be the more loving path, choice, and action to take? That is the question we should be asking ourselves.
