Faerie Card Reading for the Week of August 14 – 20, 2017


 Card: Six of Cups – from The Hermetic Tarot  by Godfrey Dawson. 

“Lord of Pleasure. Six flowers rise up in the center of the card and each flower bends over a different cup. The stems of the flowers are haphazardly intertwined. A hand grasps all the stems and four large leaves. From each flower glistening water flows into the cups, yet the cups are never full. Above and below are the symbols of the Sun and Scorpio. Angela Nelokhiel and Yeyayel. Meanings: Contention. Pleasure. Past. Memories. Nostalgia. Steady gain. “

Message from Erin: Okay, full disclosure, I really struggled with the cards today.  Normally things flow super easily and I don’t resist the messages that come each week, but this week I just wasn’t having it. I was actually clearly guided to pull a card from Doreen Virtue’s Magical Messages from the Fairies deck. I pulled one, got mad,  pulled another and got annoyed and pulled a third and still didn’t like it! And believe or not I was super annoyed that the cards were all similar in theme and I was annoyed at the Faeries for being so damned positive! Haha! 


I mean, how dare they be so positive when things feel so the opposite right now. Well, at least they feel that way to me. Things feel difficult! And the energy right now is so wacky and off putting. The Faeries, of course humoured me when I declared I was going to pick from my “dark tarot”. And of course, the card I picked has the exact same message as the other three cards. Joke is on me! Anyway, lesson learned! I should  have just stuck with the first card.

Message from the Faeries: In spite of all the intense energies and negative things happening in the world, and despite your own struggles, things are really looking up for you this week and this a time where some things you’ve been working towards are really going to work out. We will go so far as to say: Things are going to work out to spite of all the dark and weird things going on this week. Good things can and will prevail! 

We aren’t going to smother you with too much positivity because it might come across as unreal or disingenuous, but we hope this message of light will shine through the dark. Your cup(a) aren’t empty, they are flowing! 

We love you, 

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of February 6 – 12, 2017

Card: Shine Your Light – Archangel Uriel – from the Angel Prayers Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray. 

“You are blessed to have received this Angel card today, as the Angels feel the world is now ready to see the special gifts and talents that they call your light. You have been hiding yourself from the world for too long and now is the time for you to step into your power and share the gifts you have with all those around you. You are a great beacon of light and when you walk into the room many people benefit from your positive energy and heart- filled presence.”

Message from the Faeries: We, as The Fae, are not nearly as gentle or as kind as The Angels. Our message for you this week is quite blunt, and perhaps a little bit rude, and we make no apologies. Our message to you is clear: Stop fucking around!  

Yeah, that’s right. You heard us correctly: stop messing around! It’s time to get to work! This is it. This isn’t an audition. This isn’t practice. This isn’t a dry run. This is the real deal!  This is the moment you have been waiting for. You’ve been waiting for this your whole life. If you were looking for the opportunity to shine, we’ll this is it. 

We know, things are tough right now. Things feel dark. The world feels like a scary place. We aren’t going to sugarcoat this for you. Things are a little dark and scary. Guess what?  You are the light in the darkness! Imagine how dark the night sky would be without the stars. One star in the sky bring a little light. A night sky full of stars is bright and beautiful. 

Now is not the time to dim your light. Now is not the time to hide under a rock. Now is not the time to be shy. You’ve got to get out there and shine a light. Every day ask yourself: what have I done to make the world a little lighter? Have you made someone smile? Have you made someone laugh? Did make someone’s day better? This is your job. This is what you are here for. 

Shine a light! 

We love you, 

The Faeries. 

Good and evil?

The topic of good vs. evil is one that I think about quite often. It isn’t something that I really know the answer to and I don’t think anyone will ever be able to articulate it in a way that I will find satisfactory, but I definitely have some strong feelings on the topic.

First of all, I didn’t name this article Good VS. Evil for a reason. Good VS. Evil implies that there is this constant epic battle that is happening in this world. That there is Good and that there is Evil, and it implies a sort of black and white type of world. I don’t know about you, but I most certainly don’t experience my life in black and white. I live in a very colourful and vibrant world that has all sorts of tones and shades to it. Having said that, this is where our paradoxical existence lays, we do live in a dualistic reality. So yes, there is good and there is evil….but so what? I’m not trying to be a dismissive jerk about it, I’m just trying say that I don’t see the need to invest time and energy into this perspective that I think can lead myself into a deceptive trap.

Why do I see this as a trap? Easy: If I think of myself as “Good” ,and then I perceive other people, institutions and ideas as “Evil”, then I am constantly separating myself from everything around me. I am no longer able to see myself as a part of the world around me, as being connected to everything, if I am seeing everything in my world as being separate. Most importantly though, I believe that we are all of God’s creation. Every single thing in my reality is God. So really, how can anything be Good or Evil? Again, this is a result of our three dimensional existence. It’s very difficult for us to see the really big picture, from a macrocosmic perspective, at all times. We are very much programmed to see things in a dualistic way.

Here’s the thing: I believe that we choose to be here, because I believe that we all have freewill (although many of us forget that and therefor lack free-will). As a soul-being we make the active choice to be born here on Earth, and to be born into this dualistic reality. Living in a dualistic reality means living in a world of contrast. It means living in a world where there is light and dark, love and hate, men and women. Why do we choose to do this? The only answer that I can come up with is that as a soul we have desires to learn and grow. When we are in our soul-body, with no physical form, we can be anywhere we want at any time. We are astral travelling soul beings who are pure light and are always connected to God-Source-Love. When we agree to become a physical form we choose to bind ourselves to the contracts and agreements made for whichever three-dimensional reality we choose to manifest in. In the case of Earth, when we choose to be born here, we agree to manifest into a dualistic reality. We are here to experience and learn. Why else am I here? If Earth was a place where all I experienced was pure light and love at all times, what would be the point of being here? Really, I may as well just die and ascend to heaven.

I’m here to learn. I don’t see how I can learn my soul’s lessons unless I live in a world of contrast. This is why I live in a world where Good and Evil exists. If I felt good and happy all the time I simply wouldn’t need to be here anymore. I guess this is where my Buddhist tendencies kick in, because I really believe in the old saying “life is suffering”. To be a human being means to suffer. Guess what? I am completely and totally okay with this. Why fight a losing battle? It’s okay to experience pain. It’s okay to get sick and to die. This is why I am here! It’s actually quite a remarkable and beautiful thing!

So I guess what I really want to ask is: Why make a big deal out of this whole Good and Evil thing? It seems more reasonable, to me, to simply accept that I chose to live in this dualistic reality where Good and Evil exists. It is completely impossible for me to be made out of pure light when I have a physical three-dimensional body, and guess what, I have a shadowy dark side to me here on Earth. We all do! Some people see human beings as being imperfect. How can any of us be imperfect if we are all God’s creation? Who do you think created the Devil? God did.

When I look at the history of humanity I see a never ending cycle of war between Good and Evil. One group of people determined that another group people were Evil and they sought to destroy and diminish what they thought was Evil. They thought they were Good and that they must rid the world of Evil. They were doing what they thought was the right thing to do. Over and over again we see the same story and hear the same rhetoric. Tell me, who is really winning? Is it Good or is it Evil? No one is winning. So this is why I ask: why do we invest so much into this? In the end we just end up fighting with ourselves. We do the same thing to ourselves. We don’t like parts of ourselves and we determine different aspects of ourselves to be good or bad. We love it when we make people smile and hate ourselves when we make people cry. We are at war with ourselves.

I feel tired of fighting with myself. I feel like I am reaching a new level of self-acceptance for myself where I no longer wish to fight myself. I just want to love myself – every single part of myself – the way God loves me.

Am I saying that we should allow people to do “bad” things to us? Am  I saying that we should allow world leaders to make decisions to harm lots of people and harm the planet? Am I saying that we should let people bully us around? Hell no! Despite the inevitable suffering that I experience in life, I believe in quality of life. I still want to enjoy life to the fullest, and I think that every human being has the right to have a quality, joyful experience here on Earth. I can’t do anything about the people who choose to have a miserable experience on Earth, but I have every right to ensure that they don’t bring their miserable business into my own existence.

I am a being of Light that was born out of the darkness of the Void.

Much love,

Erin xoxo
