Dear Angelic Blog Buddies:
This is my SPRING 2010 NEWSLETTER.
Hello to everyone. I actually began this newsletter in March and here’s what I wrote at that time:
I am writing this newsletter to you as a healing for myself and for all who share with me the longing for spring to arrive, flowers to bloom, butterflies to be flitting, and to be able to be outside with the nature devas.
I am so ready for the vibrant colors and energies of spring. This afternoon as I began working on this newsletter, a little bird came to the window sill by my computer and was chirping happily. I stopped what I was doing and allowed myself to receive the sound healing this little fella was giving to my soul.
As Chuck and I pulled out of our driveway, we noticed a flock of geese that were sitting on the banks of a farmer’s pond. The pond is still frozen over. We had 60 degree weather today and even after a number of days of high 50’s and 60 degree weather, there are still snow banks and pond ice that seems to be refusing to melt. I could feel the geese longing to be able to be in the water again.
Because of the intense weather that we have experienced this winter, I am encouraging everyone to do an energy clearing visualization for your property. This Energy Clearing Visualization is from Cindy McGonagle’s book GARDEN NOTES. Cindy has given me permission to include it in my newsletter and she also was kind enough to share the recipe for Focus Tea.
Her website is: www.cindymcgonagle.com – where her books are available for purchase.
“This is an exercise to send love and light to our planet Earth.
Walk around your property visualizing a white light connecting each of the four corners that make up your perimeter. If you can't physically walk around then at least walk around your home or apartment building in a clockwise manner.
Next visualize a central point of your property with a beam of golden energy extending from the heavens down to center of the Earth. Call in Archangel Raphael, Archangel Michael, Archangel Gabriel and Archangel Uriel to assist you in sending the white light from each of the corners of your property to create two pyramids one pointing up the other pointing down.
Call in the nature devas of your property to help you send love and light into the pyramids of light by doing this the anchored energy becomes a field of love and will radiate out from its central core in all directions and the Earth is a little lighter and less dense and your home is balanced.
This is especially good to do when first moving into your property.
A tea Fairy Queen D wishes to share with your readers is called;
Focus Tea, (from Queen D's Fairy Recipe Book) made with equal parts, basil, lemon thyme and lemon balm. Hopefully you can grow the herbs in your container or herb garden.
This tea is great for helping you stay on task until you complete your task and then helps you move forward to complete your next task.
It helps you stay focused!!” – a big thank you to Cindy
It’s almost the end of the April when I am back to writing my Spring 2010 Newsletter. The inspiration I would like to share in this newsletter is simply to catch a glimpse of the fairies.
I often have people tell me they want to see the fairies. My reply is to encourage the individual to first catch a glimpse of a fairy. First catch a glimpse of the face of nature.
Take time to look for the face of nature in your flowers in your garden, in trees that surround your h ome. Numerous artists use the technique of creating works of art where if you look from a different angle you see something new revealed, i.e. you think you are looking at a winter scene of woods and then you realize there are powerful beings standing with the trees.
Allow yourself to be the sensitive being you are. Be sensitive to your environment. To the sounds. The energies. The colors. The subtle movement and vibration.
Frederick Langbridge wrote in A Cluster of Quiet Thoughts : “Two men look out through the same bars. One sees the mud, and one the stars.”
It’s all about reflection. One of my favorite definitions of the word reflection is “to shine back”. What are we reflecting to nature? Are we shining back? Are we reflecting back sacredness and respect?
Here’s a blessing to say as your walk through your home and your surrounding property; in fact, you can say this blessing in any environment:
Oh Spirit of Place
Help me to make this space (home) a
Pleasant and positive place to love
Where Nature is at home
Where Love is at home
Where Compassion is at home
If you have a garden or acreage, always leave a small wild area that is not cultivated or disturbed for the fairies. You can build a little altar out of leaves and twigs. You can use this space as a place for quiet communion with the fairies. Stand in this space and express your sincere desire to love and support the nature kingdom.
Plan and design gardens with plants that attract wildlife
Build a small fairy house of materials of nature. Many traditions build spirit houses as an invitation to share space with spirit. A fairy house is a sign to the fairies that you wish to live in harmony and balance with nature.
It’s important that we recognize that our own physical bodies need to live in harmony and balance, too, with our own elemental energies.
Last week during my weekly spiritual development class at Angel Heights, I gave the class members a breakdown of the elements in their natal birth chart. It is important that we recognize that we are the energies of the four elements: air, fire, earth and water and all derive from the fifth element either. By being conscious of the elements in your natal birth chart, you can recognize elements that you might need to supplement in your life experience.
For a moment, imagine that your natal chart is mirroring to you the conditions of the planet of you. What if you realized that your planet had no fire? It would make you conscious and aware of the importance of doing things in your life that produced light experience, warmth/healing experiences; transformative experiences. The lack of the fire element is not a negative. It simply means that you have come into this physical body experience to more strongly embrace your fire identity. Your natal chart is saying: Hey, fire is invisible. Do something to make it visible.”
As we support our own elemental energies in becoming visible, this supports our efforts in having a visible experience with the devas, elementals, nature spirits.
Invisibility changing to visibility may be a slow, subtle experience. Remember, the first fairy contact may be one that is indirect. Do you remember when you were first touched by spirit during a meditation? Didn’t you feel like a fly had landed on your face? I know I did. This is also true with experiences with the fairies in nature. It can be the brush of the wind on your face that feels like a gentle touch. As the fairy beings come near to you, you may feel yourself wanting to cry for no reason.
You may pick up the fragrance of a flower that is not around you, yet you smell the flower. You may hear music, singing, chimes ringing and there appears to be nothing around you.
You may notice the movement of trees and bushes without the wind blowing. You may catch a glimpse of something moving out the corner of your eye. You may notice that the dew in the morning has a special hue or color to it, i.e. golden dew.
I recently “rediscovered” a quotation I had saved by Terri Windling. I absolutely love it.
We must remember that the hero’s journey is one that is never really done. For all of us who emerged from that dark forest, there are times we must head back into the trees – only now we’ve a different role to play. This time we must be the good witch, the fairy godmother or the animal guide: the one who waits by the side of the road, ready to light the way for those young heroes who struggle on behind us.”
Springtime is finally here and I am doing my happy dance with my fairy friends. I am celebrating that life is a hero’s journey and we are truly good witches, earth angels, fairy godmothers, and spirit guides sharing sacred space with all the members and kingdoms of the family of God.
It is my joy to share with you 101 ways to be a friend to the Fairy Folk and experience Fairy Fellowship in your life.
1. Believe in fairies.
2. Read fairy tales from around the world.
3. Use the word “flow” in your daily dialogue. Fairies feel comfortable with people who flow with life; people who let their life force flow.
4. Be open to seeing fairies with peripheral vision (from corner of your eyes). This is fairy focus. If you notice circles of light, you are observing fairies dancing. Fairies love to swirl, whirl and twirl.
5. Keep your mind and imagination open. You develop fairy vision with your imagination.
6. Recognize many invisible worlds envelope your visible world. When you’ve lost “track of time,” and find your mind blank as to where you’ve been or what you’ve been doing, you may have been wisped away to a pixie playground. Without wisping in life, you can wither in life.
7. Celebrate flowers! Love flowers; in fact, a love for all living things is a bridge between humans and fairies. Fairies love bluebells, pansies and daisies to name a few fairy favorites.
8. Honor the importance of childhood. Children are closer to fairy folk than adults. Fairies nurture childhood spirit.
9. Look for magic in everyone and everything. Buy a magic wand. Even better, make your own magic wand. Fairies are
10. Attune to subtle energies. Allow yourself to sense energy changes especially changes in the environment around you.
Notice the obscure.

12. Pay attention to sound and consider turning down the volume around you so you can hear fairy talk. Let your mind flow with dreams about fairies.

15. Make time to have a picnic in a park. Frolic with the fairies.

18. Use your inner ears and inner eyes to hear and see the invisible world around you.
19. Breathe in all the amazing scents of life.
