Faerie Card Reading for the Week of November 13 – 19, 2017

Card: Kick Up Your Heels – from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.

“There is always something to celebrate, and this card asks you to do so now. Your soul longs for an exciting adventure, such as a out-of-town trip, throwing a party, or kicking up your heels and dancing. Sometimes we procrastinate when it comes to personal time-outs, believing that such activities cost too much time and money. Yet the benefits of celebrating are many: getting a fresh perspective and new ideas, rekindling old friendships, and the sheer joy of entertaining yourself.”

Message from the Faeries: If you haven’t been having any fun lately then it’s time to get at it. It’s easy to get caught up in all the seriousness and business of life and lose sight of the big picture. As far as we are concerned, a life without fun is not a life worth living. So if you aren’t having any fun, then you are doing it wrong.

Some of you might not want to take our advice. Why would you listen to the faeries? We are notorious partiers and we don’t seem to take anything too seriously. Correct? Well it is true we love to play, make games and have lots of fun, but we do take the business of partying very seriously. The more joy and laughter, then the better a life and a more livable world.

One of the reasons you all have so much stress in your lives is because you take yourselves and everything else so seriously. Lighten up a little! We challenge you to spend at least 30 minutes each day doing something that you enjoy and brings you joy. It has to be activities that you don’t normally do, like dancing, singing or going to a new restaurant. It’s time to shake things up a little and bring more smiles to your hearts. Then, pay attention to how these moments of fun each day impact how your week goes, overall. Maybe you’ll decide to make a regular habit of it.

We love you,

The Faeries

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

new year fairies

Wow! 2014 has been quite the year. Many wonderful things have happened and lots of not so wonderful things too. I’m ready to put this year behind me and I am very much looking forward to  starting 2015. Thank you everyone for all of your love and support. Your kind words and feedback keep this blog going. I can’t wait to do more readings for you in 2015 and to do a lot more writing. The Faeries have taught me so much, especially in the last few years, and I am so deeply grateful for all that they have shared with me. It really is a blessing to have them in my life. I can’t wait for all the wonderful things that we will learn together in 2015. I’m going to spend this evening peacefully in my home, enjoying some music and starting all my prayers and dreams for the New Year. I’m going to light some candles, burn some incense, sage, lavender and cedar, and leave out some offerings. I hope you all have a wonderful time and I am sending you all lots of prayers and well wishes for 2015. May the New Year be filled with love, laughter, good health, joy and abundance.

Much love,

Erin

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of 24th – 30th, 2014

Card: 9 Queen of Laughter from The Heart of Faerie Oracle cards by Brian and Wendy Froud.

queen of laughter

“Often faeries will do things that bring them much joy while we feel more annoyed than anything else at the antics (sock stealing, and car key hiding are good examples). When this happens, when you can’t find your keys anywhere, stop for a moment and listen. You maybe just be able to hear the silvery laugh of the Queen of Laughter as she leaps between the worlds dangling your keys in her fingertips. Say hello, give her a smile, and she might just do the same for you. Pass her joy on to a friend or lover and watch your relationship blossom.”

Message from The Faeries: Its been quite some time since we brought your attention to the Queen of Laughter, and we think the reminder of her existence is long over due. Have found yourself losing your keys a lot these days? You could have sworn that you left that book on the table. Where on earth did you put that necklace? Those brief moments of confusion and frustration and to remind you to stop, take a breath, relax and not take yourself too seriously.

It’s true, sometimes we can be a little mischievous. We have hid some of your things over the years. We do find it really funny to watch you look around for your keys when you just know you had them in your pocket. We usually only do this to you when you’ve been taking yourself way too seriously and when you have forgotten to laugh or smile. We do this when you are very stuck. When you do find your keys a couple of minutes later in that place where you just knew you put them, you have a moment of confusion and then you smile. Your feeling of frustration turns to feelings of gratitude and joy.

When you relax, let go, have fun and laugh, you allow love to flow through your life. When you are holding on too tightly to unhealthy situations in your life, and you are unable to relax and let go, we assist you with gentle reminders that things aren’t so bad. We try to bring a smile to your face in whichever way we can. Hiding your objects is usually a last resort for us. We try all kinds of things before it gets to that point. If you aren’t paying attention and you are so blinded by your pain and suffering, we have to take more extreme measures. Quite often sending a bird to land on your windowsill is enough to make you smile or even laugh. If a simple thing like this can’t bring a smile to your face, then we feel it’s our duty to do whatever it takes to make you smile.

So, instead of us taking some extreme measures to bring laughter into your life, do yourself favour and smile a little more. Do things that make you smile and laugh. Bring joy and love into your heart. This joy and laughter will spread to those around you. Laughter is some of the most powerful magic in the Universe. Be the magical person that you are and shine brightly for yourself and the people who surround you. Watch it work wonders. We know it does. We live and breath this magic. Our very life depends on it, and so does yours.

All our love and laughter,

The Faeries.

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of October 28 – November 3, 2013

Card – 9 The Queen of Laughter – from The Heart of the Faerie Oracle by Brian and Wendy Froud..

queen of laughter

Message from Erin: This is the second time we have received this card in the past year! The first time was in January.

This past Friday I saw Dr. Michael Wesch do a keynote speech, and one of the messages from his lecture that really struck me was that it has been proven through many studies, including his own, that students learn best through fun. If you want someone to actually learn something, learning in the sense of it becoming knowledge, then the best way to teach someone is through some sort of fun activity or actively engaging them. This, of course, makes total sense to me and it’s no wonder that so many kids are having trouble learning in school when it’s mostly just about remembering facts as opposed to actual learning. Anyways…the point of what I am saying is that it’s  important to have fun! Having fun not only brings joy, laughter and happiness into our lives, it also is good for our brains and our body. It’s integral to our very well-being and health.

Today, as I was walking down the street, I kept hearing the message: “If you aren’t having fun, you’re doing it wrong.” -This is the message that The Faeries had for me today, and this is the message that they have for you.

As a Buddhist, I fully acknowledge the statement “Life is suffering”, but to be quite honest with you: Why in the hell would I bother coming here to Earth if it wasn’t to have some laughter and fun?! Yes, we live in a dualistic world where there is pain and suffering, and there is also joy and happiness. The thing is, here is the clincher, you also have choice! Free will! You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be miserable. The choice is ALWAYS yours. You may believe that you have no choice in the matter – to this I say that you have chosen to not exercise your free-will (and hey, you made that choice). Sometimes it’s easier to lay blame than to take responsibility, I get that. I propose to you that it may be in your self-interest to be a little more pro-active and that you might want to choose to have more joy, laughter and happiness in your life. I’m telling you, it’s super worth it, and YOU are super worth it.

I have seen time and time again, in my own life, that when I focus more on the joy of life, when I am feeling grateful and counting my blessings, lots of really great things start happening all around me. Not only is my life more awesome when I am laughing and having fun, but the people around me are also having a good time. I have also noticed that when I spend less time around people who often use negative-speak or who are energy vampires, I tend to feel a lot better. I also make more of a conscious effort to not watch violent movies, and to limit my time in media. Why would I want to subscribe to and encourage all the sludgy energy that surrounds me day to day? I do not avoid the shadows and the darkness though. I actually love “the darkness” as much as “the light”, but what I am simply saying is that I don’t want to focus on the darkness as much as I want to put my attention on the joy and the light. Life can be difficult, so why make it more difficult?

My hopes and prayers for myself and for all of you this week is that we are able to hold our heads up high during these crazy times, and that we are able to fill our own lives, and lives of others, with joy, laughter, happiness and love. I pray that we do not get swept away by the tides of fear, greed and sorrow. I pray that we are able to open our hearts and let love shine out and within. We all deserve to smile, laugh and and have fun.

I love you all.

Many blessings,

Erin
