Wisdom from The Fairies and Me

A Little Reminder

Many people start a powerful spiritual path with the idea that everything is now going to be pleasant. That because you are co-creating with God, talking to your guides, choosing the deeper spiritual way that it is smooth sailing from here on out. That the Fairies are going to magic away all of your problems. Then when things aren’t that way they feel like something is going wrong. The path is different for everyone but it seems that everyone has their moments of struggle, of feeling lost, and of doubt. One night when pondering this I wrote the following:

 

I stumble on this path I walk.

Feeling frustrated, broke, lost alone, and tricked again.

I know there is a plan. I created it so long ago,

That I can’t remember the purpose my friend and I had.

I smile at the thought of the moment when it reveals itself like a sudden crash.

It is the bolt of light that illuminates all for an instant.

I have had those blinding moments before.

They are what keep me chasing this storm;

This storm that shakes the old foundations.

This storm that pours refreshing waters almost painfully down on all.

When I feel like it is too hard, wet, and dark; I hear that rumble.

I feel it in my toes and I know the flash is coming.

Then that blinding light hits my soul.

I burst with laughter, reminded of the beauty, and feeling the love for all.

Including the stumbling, broke, lost, and bitter person I am at times.

 

I tell you this to give you hope. If you have times that you want to give up. If you think you have lost faith or don’t believe anymore. It’s okay and it’s normal. Let yourself feel these feelings. It means you are getting to the bottom of your resistance. It means you are close to another break through and you need to get broken down to surrender. Just know that you will then have an amazing experience very soon that will confirm everything for you. We are human beings with lots of feelings. These feelings help us navigate our paths.

The concept of a spiritual path is one that I think gets taken too literally. This is not a path from point A to point B. It is a way to experience life. We are not going anywhere on our spiritual paths. There is nothing to obtain. It seems to me that many keep looking for where “the path” is taking them. It’s like they are expecting some pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The path is about stability. A spiritual path, no matter what it is, is the support you turn to, the beliefs that create your life, the magic you can connect with to remind you of the larger whole, and where you receive your guidance day to day. It is about moving through your experiences with grace not achieving something. It is about moving through your emotions to feel with clarity. Stop looking for happiness, success, and love. Stop looking for the new instructions to “lead you in the right direction”. Just be happy. Just be a success. Just be love. Stop “following a spiritual path” and instead feel, hear, see, taste, smell, and be your path.

I LOVE Myself

I am a recovering alcoholic. Today, October 22, 2012 I have 15 years sober. Part of being a recovering alcoholic is that you continue to take moral inventory of yourself and your life. This last week I have spent a lot of time reflecting about my past. I am so grateful for my life today and how amazing it is. I am often humbled by the experiences I have had. I have often said it is my ego that took me on my downward spiral and it was humility that brought me back. I work very hard to not allow myself to fall into my ego including the magic I experience on my spiritual path and in my spiritual work. Then I had a revelation, maybe I do this too much.

I have felt that I love myself and have done a lot of work around self love over the years. I can look in the mirror and say “I love you.” I feel like I am a good person and in general feel good about myself. I use to hate myself. There was a time when I wanted to kill myself. There were days when I could not look at myself in the mirror. Those days are behind me and I have made great improvement. I realized that, though I have improved by leaps and bounds since then, I have kind of hit a plateau. I got myself to a baseline of self-love. I can see the Divine in me. I can love who I am. I hold it right there. I don’t take in the gratitude and love and support of those around me. I don’t allow myself to see myself through the eyes of all of those around me. I do this for two reasons.

The first reason is the ego issue. My ego will tell me I know better then God or anyone else and convince me to make horrible choices, so I resist it. I also resist pride and in turn my confidence is shaky. When someone experiences a great healing session, or is moved by the words from The Fairies, I don’t take any ownership. I am just the vessel. What I forget is that the vessel is a part of the whole experience. Any caterer can tell you that what you serve the food in can greatly impact how the food tastes. How something is presented effects how people take it in. I am a part of the experience and yet I negate my part.

The second reason is that I have given my power away to others and they have not validated my goodness. Over the years I have let the opinions of family members or friends judge me. For one reason or another I thought that they knew more then me, or had a clearer picture of me, and would let their opinion matter most. I have been dismantling this, especially this last year. Sometimes I have a thought about myself and I have to ask myself if it is my own thought or one that I adapted from another. The really odd thing is I could have dozens of people telling me how great I am but a negative comment from someone I gave my power to would have ten times more weight. Why? Because I had already made the choice that they held the power.

I have made the decision to take my power back and be proud of whom I am. I will take in the compliments, when they come, as truth for me to hold. I will receive with gratitude the love and support from others and the universe. Most of all I will honor my part in all of this creation that is my life. I will no longer love myself at the bare minimum afraid of my ego. I will embrace my magnificence and rise above the petty thoughts of others. I hope that all of you will join me and we can sparkle with the stars together.

The Deck That Created Itself OR How I learned to let go and trust the universe

I have been determined to create an oracle deck for ten years now. In fact my first book, The Expanded Gateway: Messages to Expand Your Consciousness, started out that way. It is something that has sat in the back of my mind for ages waiting to be birthed. In September of 2011 I got a very strong message that it was time. I had decided to create professional manuals and have them printed for all of my workshops. In my Fairy Connections Workshop I have the attendees pick a Fairy themed oracle deck, from the pile I own, and practice using these as tools to connect to their own Fairies to get information. I knew that I needed to create my own deck for this exercise that people could take home with them. The Fairies were practically screaming at me that I needed to do this. I actually “tuned in” and went into conversation with them. My downfall is I am stubborn and like to think that I know better about my own life then The Fairies.

I sat them down and told them “I do not have the strength to go through this process again. I do not know where to begin to create the deck and I do not think I could put the time and energy into creating the graphics for each card with everything else on my plate. If you want me to do this deck you better bring me an easy way to make them and an artist willing to be paid later.”

The Fairies simply smiled at me and said “okay”
I then became concerned because I realized that, once again, I had agreed to go kicking and screaming down my path.
Over the next couple months I discovered a POD (Print On Demand) site that was created for making card and board games. Many people had started using it for oracle and tarot decks; so much so that they designed templates specifically for this. Okay the first hurdle cleared. I could make this deck. I was still worried about finding images. The Fairies told me not to worry about that and to start gathering their words for the messages for each card. I asked how they wanted me to do this. Their answer was to scour the daily Fairy Wisdoms I had been posting on Twitter and Facebook for the last couple years and pick the ones that felt right. I thought “Well that will keep me busy for awhile. I guess I don’t need the images yet.”

Then in December my mother had a ThetaHealing Workshop. A woman named Ann who had been a client of my mother’s, and mine, for years had decided to audit the class. At the end of the workshop she gifted small paintings to everyone in the workshop. The day after the workshop I went to my mother’s office and she showed me the painting.

“Ann paints?” I asked
”Well she wants to, but these came from a dear friend of hers who has passed. She had collected like 200 or something before she passed. Ann just loved them.” My mother explained

I instantly got tingly all over. “I think these are the images for my deck!”
I contacted Ann and asked if she would be willing to let me digitize some of the paintings and use them in my deck. She would get a percentage of the profits of course. Ann was overjoyed. She told me that she had prayed for a way to get these images out into the public about the same times I was praying for images. She then told me the story of the artist.

Florence Sibley painted for years. She would channel Archangel Gabriel and paint. Florence was like a sister to Ann. They both were very spiritual and supported each other spiritually. Florence’s passing was a deep sorrow to Ann and she had let the paintings sit for a long time because it was hard for her to think about letting them go or releasing them. Now she knew it was time and wanted to share the beauty that Florence created with the world.

I knew that these were the images I had been looking for so we agreed to meet in January after the holidays. It took multiples meetings with Ann covering her kitchen table and surrounding area with all the different paintings. Some of the paintings were large enough to hang in a gallery and some the size of two postage stamps. All of the paintings had an aspect of nature but I was most drawn to the ones with winged and energy beings in them. I just picked the ones I liked, was drawn to, and/or felt right.

Then came the day I had to start designing the cards. I felt overwhelmed by the amount of images and messages I had. After looking at specifications on the POD site, and conferring with the Fairies, I discovered I needed to make a 71 card deck. I decided to number the messages and then use the image that matched it the best. I was amazed at how well the messages and the images went together. It was like watching long lost puzzle pieces clicking into place. I also was surprised at how tiring the experience was. That was when I realized The Fairies were encoding each card with energy. They gave me techniques to allow this to happen easier and not be so draining on me.

Now I am here. The day I get to start pre-order. I am so excited to share this magical deck with everyone. It has been an amazing experience and I know the journey of this deck has just started.

Card 21 from The Fairy Wisdom Oracle

The Divine Feminine Dance in the Sky

On June 4th 2012 there will be a partial Lunar Eclipse on the full moon followed by Venus transiting the Sun on June 5th, or 6th depending on where you are in the Time Zones of the world. With such a significant galactic dance, right after the solar eclipse on the last Full moon, I wanted to get another message from the Fairies.

“The focus of this planetary dance is the Divine feminine. Venus and the moon are both energies that influence, effect, and connect Humanity to the Divine Feminine. With these energies coming between the Sun, a masculine energy, and the Earth; it is casting the shadow of the feminine over Humanity. People will find a returning to the maternal. This can manifest in different ways: many will die and choose to return to mother earth, many will re-connect or deepen their relationships with their mothers or maternal figures, and many will heal old maternal wounds. This is a time of nurturing and sensuality. We ask all of you to spend the few days before, during, and after these events taking care of yourself. Explore your senses by creating experiences that feel good, eat food that taste good, look at beauty, listen to beautiful sounds, and actually stop to smell the roses. This is the ending of the gateway time that started around the solar eclipse of last month. Your seeds have been set. Take this ending phase to let go of expectations. The more you can detach from how these seeds will manifest bloom, and bear fruit, the easier it is for us and the Universe to move you through the details. So take this time to relax, reflect, and prepare for your next adventure.”

I then told the Fairies that I knew many people were feeling more stagnant or that things were only slowly crawling forward. “Do you have perspective for those of us that feel like we are not at an end?”

”You need to stop perceiving your life as a to-do list and start seeing the journey and the many phases you have been through. Truly look at what you have done or ‘been through’ the last ten years. Even though at times you feel stuck or stagnant you can look back and see the shifts and the Divine timing of it all.”

I thanked the Fairies and came back to share this with all of you.

Ask Me about the Fairies March Part 2

One of our readers asked:

How are you beautiful beings handling Gaia’s ascension over there on yonder side of the Veil?”

Here is the Fairies answer:

“Remember the veil is a creation of Humanity to know how to shift their focus from their reality to another. What is the most important thing for you to know at this time is that all of us beings are assisting in this ascension; consciously or not. We are as much a part of the ascension as you are. First let us define ascension from our perspective. It is the natural evolution of energy and/or a being into a pure form of itself. This is not a lessening or releasing it is a shift and integration. Think of a frog moving from tadpole to fully formed frog. As a frog moves through its many stages it needs the waters and plants that surround it to help with its process. Likewise the water and plants are shifted by being a part of the process. Gaia, you, and we are all a part of this same ascension. We are enjoying this dance with all of you. We trust that everything is as it should be and know the lightness that is growing within us all. Our suggestions for you are to relax and be aware of your thoughts. The energy you feel and the thoughts you think are rapidly manifesting right. Make sure they are creating the reality you want. Also remember we are here to help whenever you ask.”

Ask Me About The Fairies March 2012

This month I was asked three great questions and I thought I would answer two now and the third in my next blog since the answer is a message from the Fairies.

“I have had some interesting history come up on elves when looking into ancestry and bloodlines. It looks like in the olden days – very olden days – they did refer to families that came from the elf kind. Not the best wording on my part. But, even if the first part of this statement is not relevant, can you explain the difference between elves and fairies?”

When I use the term Fairy I am referring to a certain being type. With the Realm of Fairy there are many beings that have been called many things. Elves are a particular race in the realm of Fairy. Generally they look more Human and are very connected to the Celtic people and land. I find Elves to be very aligned with the arts like music and writing and often help Humans with these type of projects. Also those with Elf blood are more artistically inclined. Their features (Elves and those with Elf blood) can be very elongated and pointed; think tall thin, long arms and legs, as well as pointed chins or ears.

“I met and married a very complex English man who was in a lot of his own pain, but like me, nuclear awareness had taken its toll, and depressed his spirit. He was mentally rather deranged but also a genius with amazing insight and so much I learnt from him. However, he claimed that all spirit life had been “evacuated” from our planet including faeries, elves, goblins, leprechauns, Pan etc. It was 1987. Have you any comments or details to enlighten me?”

From my perspective there has never been a time when they were evacuated or a complete disconnection between the Realms. The Fairies have talked about how our Realms have moved apart and then closer together again. This is not in distance as we see it but more in connection between the two. There have been times when it was harder for them to come here or us to go there. These were times when the mass consciousness of Humanity had been more closed to the idea of magic and magical beings and more focused on Earth Reality (like the industrial revolution has been referenced as one of those times). Even in these times there were people that felt the presence of the Fairy and worked with them. In the last 15 years there has been a “closing of the gap” where it is becoming easier and easier for the two Realms to communicate. More and more people are being tapped to connect or rediscover a natural connection to the Fairy.

I will answer one of your questions each month in my Blog and on Facebook. Please ask your question in the comments below. Also I will be answering more general questions you have about The Fairies not personal questions for you or your connection. If you would like that you can purchase a personal Fairy Message from my website.

Cupid

When I was told I should talk to Cupid for Valentine’s Day I argued. I had always thought of Cupid as the cherub they often pictured on cards or as a being from Ancient Greece; son of Venus. Once again I needed to expand beyond my own definitions. I was informed that Cupid was the energy of love in humanity and the many expressions and relationships of love. Since this is such a big energy it has been personified in both the Angelic and Fairy Realm. I was being called to get a message from the Fairy Cupid, so I let go of my preconceived ideas and opened to the message.

As I “entered in” I am greeted by a tall slender female Fairy with dark hair dressed all in reds. “I thought Cupid was going to be male” I said

“I am the female half of Cupid, he is the male half” she gesture toward a tall slender male fairy dressed all in reds.

“Is there a male and female in the Angelic Realm and why is there both here?” I questioned.

“Masculine love energy and feminine love energy is very different energy. It is easier for us to assist by taking two forms. Just to clarify feminine love energy can be present in males and vice versa. It is just a particular form of love energy. In the Angelic Realm they are better at blending masculine and feminine energies. They are less divided by one or the other. Cupid is one being in that Realm.” The female Cupid responds

“Well that leads me to a ton of more questions but I think they are for another time. What is the message you wish to share with us?”

“Many of you are surrendering to love. It could be love for another, love of yourself, love of life, or connecting with your passions. We want to remind you that love makes you feel powerful not powerless. In the act of surrender you may think your power is being taken away but find the ways this is empowering you.” answered the female Cupid.

The Male Cupid finally spoke, “We also wish Humanity to open to the solution of love. When pondering a decision pick the choice that feels the most loving especially for yourself. When you feel stuck or you can’t find an answer send love energy out into the world or perform a random act of love and let the universe bring the answer to you.”

“When you love, love, love then love, love, love will be returned.” The female cupid jumped in, “Express your love in what ever ways feel fitting in the moment. Remember love expressions do not have to be connected with money. Money is often how you show the value of something in your Realm and you use this often to show how much you love. You buy the biggest present or the rarest. There is nothing wrong with that. We would like you to start using love as your expression of value. When something or someone is important to you throw love at it. Focus as much love as possible on it.”

Then the male cupid added “Whatever you focus your intention on is where we, the other beings, and the universe will focus our energies to support you. Also how you focus your intention is important. If you are focusing filled with fear, stress, or regret then you will signal us that you need help being freed from your own limits and may not get the result you want. When you focus with love, joy, and gratitude then you signal us that you would like more of this in your life and are ready to make room for it.”

“Release your fears and let love explode from you into your life.” They exclaimed together.

“One last thing,” the female Cupid said, “Please use this information to love. Do not berate yourself for not being perfect. When you find the solutions to issues then you should rejoice in the discovery. Do not beat yourself up over not knowing the answer sooner.”

I thanked them for their wisdom and promised to share the message right away. I hope all of you have a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with love.
