“The Queen of Hearth and Home carries with her the ability to make a home in the moment, in the now, wherever she is. She passes this ability onto you. It is important to ‘be at home’ in any situation, to create a ‘home’ when you invite people in to your space, whether a table in a restaurant, a desk at work, a seat next to you on a bus or plane, or in your own home.”
Message from the Faeries: This week’s reading is related to last week’s reading. Last week we talked about the importance of compassion, and how much the world needs it right now. Now more than ever. Compassion makes the world more hospitable. This faerie queen is here to remind you have of the importance of hospitality.
Hospitality isn’t just about giving people a nice place to sit or sleep, and it isn’t just about offering fresh food and drink. Hospitality is about showing people grace in your space. Your space is whatever is all around you at any given moment. It can be a challenging being gracious with your space when you live in such an unfriendly environment where most people seem so selfish with their space.
How many times of you sat on a bus, only to feel your own space infringed upon by the person sitting next to you who insists on sitting with their legs wide open. We’re certain you can think of countless examples of people being in hospitable. This behaviour is mostly due to a lack of awareness of what they are doing. It’s really not personal they truly just aren’t aware.
See the mask this Queen is wearing? She is slightly lowering it down because she is getting ready to tell someone that they are being inhospitable and she is going to gently remind that they are sharing a space with other people. We encourage you to lead by example this week, and we want to tell you that it’s okay to tactfully and gracefully tell someone if they aren’t reciprocating with the hospitality. Sometimes people just need a little nudge. Chances are they just aren’t paying attention and are not living in the moment like you are.
We love you.
