Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 25 – 31, 2017

Card: Ocean – Ebb and Flow – from the Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer.

“You have been fighting the ebb and flow of your own feelings – denying your hurt, anger, or sorrow – by either attaching yourself to one or the other and nurturing it as if it were a nursing child, or else smoothing over your feelings with more practiced responses that deny and hide what is going on beneath the surface of your expression. When you attempt to constrict yourself from experiencing your emotions, it is much like trying to stem the tides that grow even more forceful with every attempt humans make to control them. Allow yourself to swim with these variations rather than resisting them. “

Message from the Faeries: During the holiday season, many of you find yourselves in stressful social situations. Being around your family can sometimes emotionally draining. Relationships with parents, children, grandparents, brothers or sisters are very complex. They know you in ways that no one else does, and they tend to push all the right (wrong) buttons. Sometimes it’s so intense that everyone in the family feels triggered at the same time. It’s difficult to be vulnerable with people who are on the defensive.

Parties with friends can also be challenging. Sometimes someone unintentionally (or intentionally) says something to get an emotional reaction. You can also be feeling shy if you are around people you don’t really know. Parties can be fun, but they can also be a minefield emotionally for some people.

This holiday, we urge you to try and go with the flow with your emotions. If you are feeling sad – maybe because you are missing a loved one – then it’s okay to be sad. Allowing yourself to feel the sadness will allow it to pass. You won’t feel sad forever, but it’s perfectly alright to be sad in a moment. Who knows, maybe showing your sadness might get some hugs and love and support. If you find yourself angry with someone, instead of holding on to that anger, wouldn’t it feel better to tell them how you are feeling and move on?

You have an emotional body that you can’t escape from. It has its highs and its lows. That’s just the way of it. Instead of fighting it, try embracing it. You might inspire your family and friends to do the same.

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Tarot Card Reading for the Week of November 14 – 20, 2016

Card: Two of Cups – from the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless Ph.D. 

“The cup as a container symbolizes the management of your feelings, resulting in emotional equilibrium. Emotional stability, like the river, means going with the natural flow of your feelings. Yet, like the duck case, ride on top of these emotional waters, particularly during the blues and the unexpected twists and bogs in the river of life. This requires meditative state of mind and heart, to be feeling and apart from your feelings as you acknowledge them without judgement.”

Message from the Faeries: How are feeling these days? We sense a lot of anxiety and anger and fear from a lot of you these days. Whatever it is that you are feeling, there is no judgement from us. These are turbulent times and it’s easy to get emotionally and mentally caught up in the crashing waves. 

This week, we want to remind you once again that it is important that you try not to get to carried away with these strong emotions you are experiencing. Meditation is a really great tool to help you stay afloat and keep your head above the water. Take the time to sit and be quiet. Take lots of deep breathes and watch your emotion and thoughts. Feel your feelings and think your thoughts but there is no need to hold on to them and dwell on them. Let go and move on. Do this as much as you need to. 

We warned you previously that some not so nice things were coming down the line, globally, and we don’t see this trend ending any time soon. We aren’t trying to be doom and gloom, we are just keeping things real. Here is the thing to keep in mind: things are always constantly moving and changing. Sometimes these changes are perceived as good and sometimes they perceived as bad. From our perspective changes and shifting is always happening and it is neither good nor bad. 

While you may not have control over events that happen globally, or even what happens to you personally, you do have a choice in how you carry yourself. You have the ability to change and modify your perception. You have the will to not become a slave to your emotions. It’s okay to feel afraid of something, but staying in that fear is to your detriment. 

Being accepting of the changes that are happening is one way to not get caught up in the waves of chaos. We aren’t talking about giving up, and we aren’t talking about giving in. What we mean is: be the observer. Watch things unfold and step outside of it. Accept that you can’t change what has happened, and then come to a resolve. What are you going to do to make things work for you? What are you going to do to ease your anxiety? What are you going to do to make changes you need to happen? But don’t sit there and wallow in the depths of despair. This isn’t going to help you or anyone else. Tranform this energy of despair and let it propel you to greatness. 

We love you. 

The Faeries.

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of January 5th – 11th, 2015

Card: Maeve “Honor the cycles of your body, energy levels, and emotions” – from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.

Maeve

Message from The Faeries: We chose this card for you because this week starts off with a Full Moon, and what better example to use to show you that your life – your body – is very much a part of the natural world, just as the moon, the stars, the plants, the animals and everything else is a part of nature. Everything is connected and works together. Right now there happens to be some intense energies going on celestially, and it’s important to recognize that this will have an impact on you.

There are some forces in nature, and your life, that you have no control over. Just as you are affected by a person at work being snippy with you, you are also affected by moon. You can not control the storm that is brewing outside, just as you can not control how the person next to you is driving. What you can do though is pay attention to yourself. Pay attention to how you feel. Are you low energy? If so, are you respecting yourself and where your energy levels are at? Are you doing too much? Running on empty? Listen to your body, if it is telling you stop then you should do as it says.

Why fight the truth about what is really going with yourself? If you are body is asking you to rest, take a rest. After you rest, the chances are pretty high that you are going to have energy again. Like all things, your body has a natural cycle. It needs rest and then it has energy. If you don’t respect the natural cycle of your body, you will get sick and become unhealthy. Yes your body is strong and resilient, as is your spirit, and if you are not feeling the consequences of your ignorance now, you will most certainly experience later down the road.

When you can see a  thunderstorm coming in, do you go inside and remove yourself from harms way? If you don’t, then you run the risk of getting struck by lightning. Perhaps the odds are low that you will get struck by lightning, but there is still a very good chance that you will get wet when you stand in the rain. When you feel yourself getting frustrated with everything and everyone, do you stay in the situation that is upsetting you? If you do, chances are you are going to eventually get angry with someone or have some sort of meltdown. If you had been listening to your emotional body, you would have excused yourself from the situation and allowed yourself some time and space to properly process what was going on and then come back with a fresh view.

The truth of the matter is, you aren’t always going to feel 100% all of the time. The sooner you acknowledge this and honour the truth, the easier your life can become. Instead of fighting yourself and your natural cycles, why not go with the flow? Chances are you already know some of your life patterns. For example, some of you might get a little tired and sad during the winter when there isn’t as much sunlight. What are you doing for yourself to make these months easier? Some people go on vacation or take some time off of work. Some people try to get more exercise during this time to boost the happy chemicals in your body. Some people take lots of Vitamin D supplements. It’s also alright to just understand why you are feeling the way you are and listen to yourself. Every little thing you do to take care of yourself is a great act of love and kindness.

When you treat yourself with love, respect and kindness. When you take care of yourself, you are sending a wave of love out to the Universe, and this wave of love will be sent back to you tenfold. This is how your life becomes showered with blessings and abundance. True love is self-love.

We hope you all have a wonderful week.

Many blessings,

The Faeries

Taking Responsibility and Owning My Feelings

purple fairy

This life. This life is such an incredible journey. How blessed am I to be here right now? I am so full of gratitude right now for my life. Just for simple being alive and for all of my life experiences. I find myself feeling more gratitude then ever these days. Even though lately I’ve been have been going through a very rough patch with my job, I am still grateful that I have a job that allows me to take time off when needed, and has great benefits.

One of the things that I am most grateful for these days is that I feel I am becoming more and more honest with myself. It never occurred to me that I was dishonest person, until the last couple of years where I have had to really face that fact that I had created situations in my life that were incredibly unhealthy. I was lying to myself before. I used to blame everything on everyone else. I wasn’t able to see that I helped create these relationships and situations. I would play the victim. It’s still an ongoing process, but I can say that it’s been quite the journey that will never end. The thing I am learning about being honest with myself is that it’s like an onion. Once you shed one layer of lies, there is another one right underneath. It brings new meaning to the expression: You can never be too honest.

It’s quite humbling to realize that I have a long journey ahead of me. Perhaps this sounds daunting, but it really isn’t. This is quite simply life. I am always taking new roads on this journey, and I will forever be learning about myself. It’s my favourite pursuit! I don’t mean this in an egotistical way, but I suppose the ego will always be involved on some level, haha.

The thing is, once I think I have it all figured out, a new situation arises that forces me to look at something about myself that I did not notice before. For example, for most of my life I bottled up my anger. When I got angry with someone I would not say a word and I would keep it all inside. Sometimes the bottle would become uncorked and I would end getting really upset with the person and telling them how I felt, but usually I would just keep it all inside. Then I went through phase where I tried to communicate how I was feeling with that person in a loving and gentle way. This went alright sometimes, but I felt that there was still anger there and I was not permitting myself to be authentic. I don’t think it’s okay to be abusive towards people, but I now feel like it’s okay to let people when you are angry. Even just saying “I’m angry right now,” really makes everything so much better for myself. I am not telling a person that they are making me angry, I am not getting angry at the person, I am just simply owning my anger. I will no longer pretend to be something I am not.This goes with all my wide spectrum of emotions.

Interestingly, I find it most challenging and vulnerable to tell someone that I love them or the joy that I feel when I spend time with them. It’s kind of unfortunate that this is the most challenging thing for me to express, but this comes from years of situations that were unhealthy. I am working on it, and I am quite optimistic that I am feeling more comfortable being vulnerable. It’s a bit of a slow process, but I’m okay with that. I think being gentle with myself is the key here.

I had this misconception that if I meditated all the time, if I read spiritual books every day, if I prayed all the time, if ate a special diet and if I listened to inspirational teachings on the regular, that I would become this super positive and happy person that would radiate light all the time and make everyone feel special and happy. Well, that really hasn’t been working out for me. That’s maybe just not the person that I am. Self-acceptance is so important to me right now. It’s a big part of being honest with myself. I experience pretty much the whole gambit of emotions on any given day, and that’s just fine by me. No more suppressing these feelings. They have to move and flow.

I used to have this idea that a healer or light-worker had to be a certain way. I’m starting to understand that everyone is a healer  and a light-worker in their own unique way and that there is no model to follow. Everyone is drawn to who they are meant to be interacting with at any given moment. If you find yourself attracting unhealthy people or situations in your life, it’s important to take responsibility for that and to understand why this is happening. Sometimes the answer is difficult to digest, but it’s certainly worth chewing on.

When I don’t like what I am creating in my life, or I don’t like how I am feeling, I do my best to take action right away. A part of this process for me has become allowing myself to express my emotions, hopefully in a healthy manner. This release allows me to move forward and onto a different feeling. When I don’t like a situation I find myself in, I now give myself permission to remove myself from it. Perhaps I helped create it, but that doesn’t mean I have stay in it.  Also, it’s been super important for me to learn that I don’t have to stay in relationships and friendships that are unhealthy or abusive.

This life is truly amazing, and I can’t wait to look back on this in a year from now and find myself in a totally different place.

Happy travels everyone!
