Faerie Card Reading for the Week of March 21 – 27, 2016

  
Card: Admit Your True Feelings to Yourself – from the Magical Messages from the Faeries by Doreen Virtue.

“Your genuine feelings form the compass that points you in the best direction and guides you to the answers you seek. Trust that changes you make will come about in harmonious ways. You’ll be glad that you admitted your true feelings to yourself!”

Message from The Faeries: We know what we ask of you is no easy task. We know it can be really difficult to dig down deep inside and find out what’s really going on with you right now. We know that most of you don’t really want to do the work, but we strongly urge you to think of this as your last ditch effort right now. 

Let’s be honest about life. Life is not easy. It’s full of struggles, difficult times and many obstacles. We know that this sucks immensely. Who the hell are we, the faery folk, to come along and tell you that you have to do yet another annoying thing. More work! 

Well, let’s remind you of somethings. Life isn’t always easy because you chose it to be that way. Why? So that you could learn. What are you here to learn about? What it means to be human. Why are humans so difficult? That’s a really great question! The only question you should really be asking yourself right now is: how am I truly feeling right now? 

Don’t thinking about the whys or why nots, and don’t worry yourself about what’s going on with other people. Just worry about you right now. There are some feelings you’ve been stuffing deep inside and ignoring. It’s time to unpack and look at them. We know it’s hard to do, but we promise it will be well worth the effort. 

Of course there might be some tears, uncomfortable feelings and other physical experiences that will come along with the process. Sit down and go into your centre. Find those feelings inside that you don’t want to look at it. Try hard to be a bit objective about it. Ask yourselves: Where does this feeling come from? What triggered it? Do I need to hold on to this anymore? What can I do about this? 

These feeling are like poison pills you have swallowed and it’s causing you more pain and illness then you need. It’s time to make yourself your cure. Spit these poison pills back up and throw them away. You’ll feel so much better for it.  Your new medicine is simply to love and take care of yourself. 

We love you.

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!

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of August 11 – 17th, 2014

Card: Talk about Your Feelings – from the Magical Unicorns Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.

Talk

“It’s not healthy to hold in your emotions, especially anger or sadness. Find a trusted person who will listen to you, such as a friend, family member, or teacher. Let that person know that you need to talk, and tell them what you need. For instance, if you want them to listen without giving you advice, then let them know. If you want them to comfort you, then let them know.”

Message from The Faeries: Emotions might be running a bit high for some of you this week as you all experience the waves from the moon this week. There might be some extremes in these emotions. Everything is a bit intense. One day you might be feeling a bit sad for no particular reason, and the next day you might be feeling extra awesome – also for no particular reason. Whatever emotional experiences you are having this week – share these experiences with someone. Chances are, other people around you are also going through some major emotional highs and lows this week, and it will comfort them to know they are not alone.

We know that sometimes you might not have any reason for feeling the way that you do, and that’s completely natural. That is just part of the ebb and flow of life. What goes up, must come down. It’s all a part of your dualistic reality. Talking about your feelings helps you to process your experiences in this world. It helps in the letting go process. When you keep things inside, you are denying your self a chance to thrive and grow. Also, think about all the people in your life. They sense that something is going on with you, and chances are they want to share with you. It’s part of the human experience to share. When you share your feelings, you allow other people the opportunity to support you, or even give them a chance to share their own feelings.

This week will provide you with a great opportunity to be the healthy communicating humans that you all know that you are. Not only are you going to share your feelings, you are going to share them in a mature and healthy manner. You aren’t going to project your feelings onto others. You aren’t going to dump your feelings either. You are going to ask if it’s okay to share your feelings, and then you are going to calmly and thoughtfully express yourself.

This isn’t just about all the sad and angry feelings, this is also about all the joy and excitement that you are feeling – we are begging you to share your joy and happiness. Everyone else will benefit tremendously if you all started to share all your happy and joyous stories.

Of course, if you don’t feel like you can share your thoughts and feelings with any of your friends or family, we recommend that you at least write them down. When you write your thoughts and feelings out, this will also help you to process your experiences. And absolutely, without a doubt, you always have our ears. We could listen to you talk forever about anything. We love you so much, and we would do absolutely anything for you. We are always here for you. 

We love you,

The Faeries
