Faerie Card Reading for the Week of August 20 – 26, 2018

Card: Body Movement – from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.

“Your physical body has its own life force and intelligence, and it’s part of the same elemental kingdom as the fairies. It’s both childlike and demanding, as well as mature and insightful. This card indicates your body’s wisdom, and asks that your body’s need for exercise and movement.”

Message from the Faeries: With all the important work you’ve been doing, a way to keep your energies level up is by getting a bit of exercise every day. It doesn’t have to be anything extreme, it can just be going for a little walk or dancing for a few minutes in your living room. The thing we recommend most is doing some stretches and working on your core strength.

Another great way to keep your energy levels up is by eating well. This means different things for different people. You know your body best. Avoid eating foods that make you feel unwell, tired and sluggish. Keep those high energy foods around for snacks at all times.

Also, it’s important to get the proper amount of rest and sleep. Again, you know what works best for you. Whatever you need to feel rested up. Try to stick to a routine. As we said last week. It’s really import to stay focused right now.

We love you,

The Faeries

Listening to My Body

Blackberry-blog-image

So the other day, during our Faerie Card Reading for this week, The Faeries gave us a really strong message to listen to our body. I have to say, this is a really great message for me this week. I’ve been trying really hard to pay attention to my body and the messages that it has been sending me. Honestly, I’ve been ignoring my body for quite a long time. I mean, yeah, I pay attention to it when it hurts because I don’t really have a choice, but for the most part I’m really not paying too much attention to it.

For the last two years I have been exercising more regularly that I used to. I go to gym a few times a week, and walk to work every day, so I know I am being active. I’ve also been trying to eat very healthy, but sometimes I get caught up in my old patters with food. I’ve had a pretty deep pattern of emotional eating ever since I was little. Whenever I feel stressed out, or sad, I immediately reach out for the sugary-carby snacks. I love to “reward” myself with lots of treats whenever I get the chance – and I somehow find an excuse quite easily to eat some sugar. My body has tried telling me for a long time now that eating all these treats just isn’t that great for me. Besides the excess weight I carry around, I have also developed strong symptoms of candida, and I often feel terrible after eating sugar.

I’ve noticed that in the last few weeks, my body has been telling me an even more strong message: Don’t eat meat. I was a vegetarian for a very long time, and then I wasn’t, and then I was, and then I wasn’t…well right now eating meat is a no go. The smell, the look, the texture – everything about meat – is making my stomach turn. I can’t stand the idea of biting into flesh. It wasn’t a problem even just a few weeks ago, but it’s just not happening for me.

I’m not sure how long I’ll be eating vegetarian. I imagine it’s probably going to be quite some time. When I asked The Faeries why my body is telling me not eat meat, this is what they have to say:

“Meat is a very low vibrational food. When you eat meat, yes it has protein and nutrients that can help you body, but there is the consciousness of that animal that is being slaughtered. There is a lot of fear and other low vibrational feelings inside the flesh of these animals. The animal is often sick or unhealthy because it is living in substandard conditions. If you were living more in harmony with animals and treating them with love and respect, and you ate the animal after it died of natural causes, this would be a bit different, but even then – you are eating something that had a soul – it had a consciousness – it had thoughts and feelings, just like you do. Meat is a low vibrational food.

Plants have a consciousness as well, this is true, but most vegetation doesn’t carry the vibration of fear. Plants vibrate at a very high frequency. It is especially beneficial to eat plants that were grown with lots of care and love, or that grew free in the wild, but this is not possible for everyone. You are much better off eating a diet that is rich in plants. This is the highest vibrational food you can eat.

You are what you eat, and the more you are open to vibrating at a higher frequency, the more your body and spirit will guide you eating food that is very clean and healthy.”

What is your body telling you these days? I would really love hear your stories.

Much love,

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 29th, 2014 – January 4th, 2015

Card: Dietary Change – from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.

dietchange

“You drew this card because of your requests for help with your life’s purpose and in awakening your spiritual gift of clairvoyance. The fairies say that your body’s metabolism is extremely sensitive. They’ve been guiding you to switch to a healthier diet, but you have not heard or trusted this message. So the fairies now bring you this card to validate that you’re hearing them correctly. As you improve your diet so do you heal other areas of your life.”

Message from The Faeries: Erin says that it’s a bit annoying and cliche that we chose this card for you this week. We appreciate her sentiment, but the truthfully this card is intentional for all of you this week. As you are probably well aware, January 1st is coming up this week. This day is the beginning of the New Year in many cultures around the world. Many of you observe this day in some form or another, so it has energetically become a very significant day.

As you find yourself entering the year 2015, we would like for you to really put some thought into what kind of life you would like to have for yourself this year. What kind of life would you like to create for yourself? When you look back at 2015, how do you want your story to have read? It would be prudent of you to really spend the first part of the week to set some important goals for yourself for 2015. You can even begin to take the next step and start putting your dreams into action.

It’s very important that you start 2015 off knowing that is a fresh start. Leave 2014 behind you. If you want, you can spend a few days before the new year going over the past year and remembering all the hard lessons you learned, but you will begin 2015 with a clean slate. What better way to start a new chapter in your life then with a clear body and a clear mind. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through meditation, diet and exercise.

We realize that you all have different bodies that work very uniquely from one another, and we would never make a broad sweeping dietary statement for that could apply to everyone. We highly recommend that you go see a nutritionist, naturopath or healer that you trust to put you on the right track on what is best for you. You may want to investigate further by going to see an ayurvedic doctor or a chinese medicine doctor. Your body is a complex entity that is special to you. Ultimately you know what is best for your body. What messages has your body been trying to send you? Has it been asking you to eat less meat? Has been begging you to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables?

We hate to break it you, but you really are what you eat. Really think about that. What have you been putting into your body? If you eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, think about all the bright colours and tastes. Plants are medicine. All of them. So when you eat lots of plant foods, you will naturally feel much better.These foods will help clear your mind. Of course, your body needs fats and proteins as well. One thing that we can promise you is that your body absolutely does not need refined sugars. It’s okay to have on very rare occasions as a very special treat, but we would say that would be once or twice a year. If you can completely cut it out of your life, even better.

Start the year off on the right foot by eating the most healthy and nutritious food you can think of and by getting lots of exercise. Start your days off by meditating for at least 5 minutes. We know that you all want to have an amazing 2015, so why not start it off on the best note possible. Celebrate the coming of the new year with healthy choices, and this will set the tone for your year to come.

We wish you all the best for the year 2015.

We love you,

The Faeries

Making Myself My Life’s Passion

life passion

I had one of those A-ha! moments in the bath this morning. I often have revelations in the bath. I figure it must have something to do with being in the water. Anyhow, while I was in that bath this morning, I was contemplating why I feel as though I have hit some sort of wall with myself these days. For almost two years now I have been going to the gym and trying to take very good care of myself. I’ve been desperately trying to kick my sugar habit, and I have been mostly eating very healthy food.

The past few months I have sort of lost interest in all of it. It’s not that I don’t care about myself, and it isn’t that I don’t want to feel good about myself. I think that I’ve just grown tired at feeling like I have to work so hard at being healthy and happy. I remembered today that I had a conversation with some friends the other night, where I was telling them it was so much work to take care of myself. We all agreed that it was hard work to look after ourselves. As I remembered this conversation it dawned on me: No wonder I was tired of going to the gym and trying really hard to be healthy! I had turned my self-care into a job. I was treating it like it was work.

I think it’s really important for me to look after myself, and to be healthy and happy. I feel very passionately about it, as a matter of fact. Truth be told, I feel really good when I’m exercising regularly and when I avoid eating lots of carbs and sugar. The thing that I am getting all caught up in is that I’ve made it into something that isn’t fun and I am losing sight of my goals. When I get wrapped up in my fitness app, monitoring my calories and scrutinizing what I eat, I am not allowing myself to relax. When I make a regimented schedule out of my life, eventually I get bored and uninterested. I start to lose my passion when I have turned it into the idea that it’s a full-time job.

Being honest with myself here – it does take effort to be healthy and to do activities that I love and enjoy. Obviously if I just sit around all day eating junk food, I’m not going feel very good both physically and emotionally. The thing that I am learning here though, is that if I take myself too seriously and start to lose the joy out of what I am doing, I am missing the point. I don’t want my life to be a make-work-project. I want my life to be full of passion, joy, love and happiness. I want my life to be my life’s passion!

So starting today, I am going to return to the passion. I am going to return to the reason why I started on this journey of self-care. I am loving myself and listening to my body. I am giving it nourishment and love. I am giving it lots of exercise and healthy food. I am doing this not because it have to, I am doing this because I want to. I want to feel good. I want to be kind to myself. I want to love myself. I’m not doing this for anybody else, just me.

This journey doesn’t have to be hard. It doesn’t have to be difficult. The only reason why it’s been a challenge is because I was approaching it as a challenge. I’ve been thinking it’s difficult and hard, and so it has been difficult and hard. No more! This life’s passion journey of health is walked with ease and grace, with skips and jumps of joy and happiness.

Here is to making myself my life’s passion.

All my love,

Erin
