Faerie Card Reading for the Week of September 23rd – 30th
Card: Flower Power – from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“This card signifies that you’ll benefit from the balancing and healing properties of flowers. Spend time in a garden or even a florist’s shop, and surround your home with fresh flowers. As you breathe in the fragrances, feel their magical healing abilities bathing every cell of your body. The fairies also suggest that you buy a bottle or two of pure flower essences, which are available at most health-food stores. Use rose oil to open your heart to love, for instance, or sprinkle lavender oil on your pillows and sheets to calm your nerves.”
Message from Erin: Haha! The Faeries sure do have a sense of humour. When I was picking a card for today, I thought for sure we were going to get a card about the Fall and about change, instead we get a card about flowers, haha. Right now I notice that some people’s gardens still have flowers in them, but they are definitely the late bloomers. Most of the flowers are dying now. Lots of things are dying and going into sleep/hibernation mode.
While the Fall, for me, is quite a refreshing and invigorating time – I really love the Fall! – it can be quite a challenging time for other people. It’s a time where the days are getting shorter and skies are becoming more grey. For some of you, this can be a little bit depressing. Also, this is a time of great transformation and change, and this can be a little bit of a challenging and scary time for some of you.
The Faeries are reminding us to not get swept away by what some people would consider these “darker days”. Remember to keep surrounding yourself with beautiful things, especially flowers. Flowers not only look beautiful, but they also have these wonderful smells that have great health benefits. Aromas can really help our our body and our minds, and can help carry us through the day.
You don’t have to think of just buying yourself some flowers. There are wonderful soaps, candles, oils, incense, perfumes and even foods that have flowers in them. For example, there are desserts that have essence of orange blossoms, or rose water and even lavender in them. There are also teas that have flowers in them: chamomile is the perfect example.
The Faeries really would like us to explore the healing powers of flowers and how they can help us in our day to day life. Here is a video I found by Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves that begins to explore these ideas. I know that they have also written a book and put out some oracle cards about the healing powers of flowers.
Many blessing to all of you!
Erin (and The Faeries)
