Faerie Card Reading for the Week of February 19 – 25, 2018

Card: 15 ‘AWA (The Kava Plant) Offering/Sacrifice – from the Mana Cards: The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom by Catherine Kalama Becker, Ph.D. and Doya Nardin.

“‘Awa teaches that to avoid bitterness it is important to examine your perceptions regarding giving and receiving. With regard to giving, you may want to examine whether you are giving freely or giving with the expectation of getting something back. This distinction also applies to offering an opinion. Sometimes it is important to speak your truth without expecting another to respond as you think they should.”

Message from the Faeries: Even though the kava plant can taste so bitter, it has amazing healing properties. Sometimes the healing journey can a bitter one. When you are healing yourself, you sometimes remember all the pain and trauma you endured. These memories can bring up feelings of anger and resentment. You may also feel anger and resentment when you give people gifts, praise or affection and they give you nothing in return.

Whatever is the root of your trauma and feelings of hurt, there is one commonality: they are the result of situations in your life where you had unmet expectations. You wanted to receive something in return for the gift you gave – whether you wanted it then or later. You expected love in return for the love you gave. You desperately hoped that because you trusted someone that they would honour that trust you had in them.

This week, when you find yourself giving to others, pay attention to the motives and feelings behind what you offer. You could be giving someone a gift, or it could be your time and energy. Whatever it is you gift to others, we suggest you try to only extend yourself freely. Try to give only when you feel like it, and only when you expect nothing in return. Try your best! It can certainly be a challenge to be so honest with yourself and others, but you might find it to be a habit worth adopting. You may also want to try doing the same exercise with receiving as well. What are genuinely willing to receive from others?

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of November 2 – 8, 2015

Card: Six of Pentacles – Generosity – from The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.

“A confident and mature woman stands at the center of this card. An Earth Goddess, whose very touch heals, she is will and ready to dispense the riches of the planet. The background behind her is strewn with discarded masks. Her generous, honest nature has no need for disguise. She believes that that which is given freely will return twofold.”

Message from The Faeries: We believe that within all of you is a generous heart. Your heart knows no bounds. It is very large and full, wanting to give to every living being that it encounters. With such big hearts, why are most of you so afraid of sharing? What holds you back? What are you so afraid of?

Perhaps you have had some sort of experience that has lead you to believe that your heart can be empty. Grief and loss can certainly leave one self with a hollow feeling. The painful experiences you have had may have caused you to feel afraid of opening your heart. While it may have felt that your heart could be empty or hurt, this is actually untrue.It is your feelings that have been hurt in the past, not your heart.

Your large, generous, heart is very strong. Always full of love and unable to break. Do you remember all those times that your heart felt so full that it was going to burst? That is the natural state of your heart. This sensation of a full heart may be too overwhelming for the ego. If you knew just how much the heart was limitless and that your capacity to love was endless, you wouldn’t be so afraid to give and to love. Love is never ending and always giving.

This week we ask you to really have a deep look at your heart and see it for what it really is: a boundless source of fearless love. When you interact with the world around you, try to giving everything around you love. Love everything. Just do it. Don’t be afraid. Love everything and see what happens. Will the world end? Will your heart break? Will people ignore you? Those fears are based on nothing, for the heart can not break.

We think you will be very surprised at what happens to your world when you give your love fearlessly. When you let your heart overflow, you open your world up to a much higher frequency. You tell the universe that you aren’t just ready to give, but you are also ready to receive. The love you will receive in return will come in all forms – people, places and material objects. The love you give will always be returned.

If you are finding that the love you are receiving right now in your life is complicated, with so many strings attached, and doesn’t really make you feel loved, the question you might consider asking yourself is: what kind of love are you giving? Is it true love? Is it fearless love? Is it love with no strings attached? To know real love is to love without fear.

We love you!

The Faeries.
