Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 9th-15th, 2013
Card: Spirit – from the Faerie Reflections oracle deck by Pauline Cassidy.
“The Faerie of Spirit is made of the energies of motion and light. Her being gravitates towards the boundless nature of all things positive. She never wastes energy on the harmful nature of negative things. She’s ever-changing and ever-motivated, pulsing with the rhythm of life’s wonderful possibilities. The Faerie of Spirit never grows weary, and her journey toward enlightenment is continuously fulfilling. She reaches her arms outward as a reminder that spirit is all-encompassing and a vital part of our mental and physical health. She’s as compassionate as she is passionate, always living life rather than watching it pass by.
No one can forge chains strong enough to bind your own spirit, but every so often you may bind your spirit with threads of your own fear or insecurity. The Faerie of Spirit wants you to know that nothing you’ve done in the past should hinder what you do from this point forward. You cannot do more than accept and learn from your unchangeable past. Go forward more prepared.”
Message from Erin: Wow! I just really love this deck by Pauline Cassidy so much. They are such a treasure. I was so happy when the faeries guided me to choose a card for us from this deck today. And of course, as always, I had a chuckle when I picked this card. This card is so perfect for this upcoming week. The faeries really want me to do the reading on my own this week. more specifically, they want me to share my experiences from this past week.
This past week began as such a challenge for me. I was at the end of my proverbial rope. My mind, body and spirit had enough and showed me what was what by forcing me to take a break and take care of myself. Basically, all of life’s stress caught up with me and I had to take two days off work because my body (my neck) seized up on me. Because I wasn’t paying enough attention to my spirit telling me to take care of myself, my body went into physical pain, forcing me to face some unhealthy patterns that I needed to stop. I went to my magical chiropractor and my magical massage therapist, and they both set me back on the path to self-care and good health. They both know that when the body is in pain, there is often emotional issues that are tied to the physical body. I feel so fortunate to have such amazing healers in my life. I hope that you all have people to support you and help you too. I realize whenever I find myself in these situations, that it’s so important for me to ask for help, and that I don’t have to do everything on my own.
As I became reconnected with all of my bodies – physical, emotional, mental and spirit – I felt myself become more grounded and centred, and I was able to face the rest of the week with ease and grace. It just so happens that a few weeks ago I had signed myself up for a day long intensive meditation course at the Shambhala Centre, that happened Friday night and all day yesterday. I could not have timed it any better.
I spent all day yesterday meditating and learning more about myself. It was truly an amazing day. It was certainly very challenging, but it was so worth all the hard work. It’s not easy meditating all day! I really just sat there and was forced to “be” with myself all day. I had to trust and listen to my spirit all day. When it told me to move my body, even though nobody else was moving, I had to move it – otherwise I would be in physical pain. Today I feel more grounded than I ever have. It’s as though my two feet are firmly planted on the ground, but I also feel flexible – like I can roll with the punches of life, so to speak.
Once again I am reminded, and the faeries want you to be reminded too, how it is so important to listen to our spirit. Spirit knows best. What is your spirit trying to tell you right now? What messages is your spirit trying to send you? Are you ignoring spirit right now? Are you feeding your spirit? Are you nurturing your spirit? Please pay attention to and listen to your spirit. When spirit is being ignored, I find that after it has sent some gentle signs and reminders, if I don’t pay attention to these signs, it has a way of showing me in a not so gentle way.
The faeries are showing me that just spending a few minutes every day, being quiet in a meditative way, is a very good practice at being present in the moment. When we are present in the moment, and when we sit in silence with ourselves, we provide ourselves with the opportunity to listen to our spirit. This is also a very simple, healthy and loving way of taking care of our spirit.
Be kind to yourself, be gentle with yourself, and just “be”.
Just be you 🙂
