Weekly Oracle Message from the Fairy Realm ~ March 31st - April 6th

Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to speak a message for those that want to listen. Each week I do an Oracle Reading with the Fairies to ask their guidance and opinions on life in general. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read.

The message received this week is: "Moving Forward without Fear".

The fairies ask you to honor your inner feelings. You are currently making a big breakthrough in your life by putting your divine and spiritual ideas into action. Trust your intuition, your gut feeling and your dreams. They aren't just examples of wishful thinking, so please don't ignore them. You have a mission in life but you must move forward in your daily tasks without fear of the next hour, day, week or month.

Allow yourself to move forward fearlessly, taking one step at a time in your adventures and life choices. Take a step and dismantle any section of your life that is out of integrity. Take another step towards realizing your heart's true desires. Even a tiny step that is remotely related to improving your life will make you feel as though you are flying with the fairies in their magical realm.

Keep taking your steps, one at a time. Don't ignore the gifts from those around you both emotional and financial. Don't rush forward with giant leaps. Listen to the inner voice, the gut feelings and strong impulses. This is what the fairies are urging you to do to allow the much needed move without fear.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I move forward fearlessly in my life. I trust that each step I take is perfectly guided and divine.

Moon Phase:
Waxing Crescent - 20% of Full (first quarter)

Moon's Place Today
(moon enters Cancer o Wednesday, April 1st)

Lunar Reading:

Stop being so hard on yourself and taking the worlds problems for your own. You are the creator of your own destiny. We often give our love to others without fully loving ourselves first. You need to ask yourself if you are truly happy as a whole person and spiritual being.

The human emotions can be overwhelming at times, especially our own egos. Ofter our self written sense of pride provides us with an excuse to behave in a certain manner. There are opposites when it comes to the ego. You have one set of people that see what others have either financially, emotionally or physically and they begrudge them for this. Then you have the other set of individuals that with a totally different ego. They don't begrudge others for what they have or don't have, even if their life is lacking in some way. Some would say they don't have an ego, but underlying is a soul crying out for something. To proud to ask or even seek what it is they are in need of. Many times they are burdened or overwhelmed becasue they take on the problems of those surrounding them. Most of us have enough to deal with in our own little worlds but we feel compelled to assist others with their problems or emotions as well.

The time to find your inner balance is now. There can no longer be a conflict of interests in your life. A change is coming in some way or form. You may be relocating, changing a job or even your status at your current place of employment. The cosmic waves are urging you and leading you to a path of least resistance. To find your balance all things must blend together without harm or damage to your spirituality and environmental views or practices.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Time to plan or create your Moon Garden or any other gardening! If gardening is your thing then chances are you have already started your seedlings or have plans on purchasing them soon. Either way now is a fantastic time to charge and bless your water and provide them with affirmations. If you don't have any form of a garden, you can apply this Abundant Garden Blessing & Ritual to any plants indoor or out that you water.

Rainbow Tree's
Abundant Garden Blessing & Ritual

Using 'charged' or 'blessed' water is quite simple. Many of us magic doers have a collection of crystals and tumbled stones. Make sure you use only those that are charged in a full moon. You can use the water directly or if it has set for a long amount of time you can dilute it.
  • Gather a pointed quartz crystal, as clear as you can find and a pointed rose quartz. Make sure the crystals are clean of any dirt or dust before you place them in your jar. Fill a clear gallon jar (preferably glass) almost full of water. The water should either be from a spring or ran through some form of reverse osmosis. No tap or city water containing fluoride or chlorine should be used.
  • Take a blank sheet of paper and use crayons with the colors of green, blue, yellow and red. Fold and tare the paper into 8 pieces, do not cut with scissors.
  • Write each of the following affirmations on one of the pieces of paper. Be decorative if you want and add vines, flowers, symbols and shapes. Affirmations to use: Love, Grow, Thank You, Abundance, Healthy, Plentiful, Gratitude, Nourished.
  • Take a piece of clear tape and stick the affirmations around the jar so that they face the water and crystals inside.
  • Place jar in a cool, dark and quiet area. A basement, back of the refrigerator or kitchen pantry work well.
  • Allow the jar to remain in its location for a minimum of 48 hours. It can stay there for several months or until needed. For every week your water sets you can dilute it buy 1 part. Example: 1 part charged water and one part regular water. If the water has sat for 10 weeks then use 1 part charged water to 10 parts regular water. This is the ideal use for larger gardens or greenhouses.
Note: The above ritual can be used for a Dietary Supplement as well. Follow the same process but change the affirmations to your situation. For heath issues use the following 8 affirmations: Love, Thank You, Healthy, Relief, Gratitude, Longevity, Strength & Renewal. Drink up to 1 oz per day.

Your Mission for this week:

Last week I encouraged you to love yourself a little more. Chances are you have been or are currently feeling down about your emotional state or physical appearance. Do something delightful that will bring you a sense of renewal with your beautiful self. Take a day and receive a hair cut or change your hair style. Visit a few secondhand shops and purchase a couple new articles of clothing that make you feel attractive or good about yourself. Run a hot bath, light a candle and enjoy you! Nobody knows you better than you and your conscious. Tap into those thoughts and desires and achieve something brilliant or beautiful that is just for you. You must love and be happy with yourself before you can fully give love or allow someone else to fully and unconditionally love you.

Please follow the link for a previous post with one of the Messages from Fairies about Beauty and the importance of loving ourselves.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Oracle Message from the Fairies 3/24/09

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to speak a message for those that want to listen. Each week I do an Oracle Reading with the Fairies to ask their guidance and opinions on life in general. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read.

The message received this week is: "New Location".

The fairies are extremely in touch with geographical changes and locations. Most likely a change of venue is headed your way. For some this doesn't necessarily mean you will be moving, but it does mean that you may change the location of your employment. There are those of us that are in the process of moving (my family included), and so this reading hits home with a move to a new residence or location.

The fairies sense that your energy is drawing you to a new location. Perhaps you are moving by choice or perhaps you feel you were forced into the move for other reasons. Either way, the fairies ask that you have trust in the situation. Know it is for the best of everyones intentions. If moving has only been a thought, then allow the fairies to validate it for you. If you are in the process of currently moving or relocating for home or employment reasons, take this message from the fairies as your validation.

Regardless of the type of relocation; be it a job promotion, change of job, moving to a new geographical location or starting your own business, simply trust that this change will bring great improvements to your life.

The fairies ask you to make a list of features you desire in your new home, job or location. Ask the fairies to help you acquire or find this new residence or the features you desire it to have. The only thing the fairies ask of you is that you make sure your relocation has the best intentions for all members of your family and no one person is excluded.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I am in a wonderful location with a spacious environment. I now feel comfortable and safe in my new location.

Metamorphism: Aspects of the Human Spirit ~ a relaxation video with art and music

Metamorphism Art was created to reflect aspects of the human spirit. While I am no longer in need of healing as I am of well being, the past was much different. At 19 cervical and ovarian cancer resulted in drastic surgery and other means. I found my comforts & healing in alternative medicines and means. After 6 years of undiagnosed C-diff and a weight loss of over 80 pounds, I sought out these alternative and spiritual means once more. Once diagnosed I was able to share the alternative healing means to others.

During these times and when I lost a little life growing inside, I began a series of artwork. Each drawing reflects a period of time in my life when I was faced with choices, desires and emotions. The 'metamorph' art will always continue to expand and grow as I do both spiritual and emotionally. The first image I drew was nearly eight years ago and the last one just over 8 months.

I created this video with relaxing music and my images for others to relate to. As with most of my videos there is always a message at the end. So please just sit back, relax and enjoy. I'm sure you'll find a Morph that resonates with you in some form of physical, emotional or spiritual way.

I believe we are on a path in life, a path of free will and choice. These are my drawings that reflect some of our human and universal spirit.

Weekly LUNAR Reading & MAGICAL Attributes: March 23rd - 29th

Title: Mesmerized ~ Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

Todays Date: Monday, March 23rd, 2009

Moon Phase:
Waning Crescent - 10% of Full (fourth quarter)
NEW Moon on the 26th of March

Moon's Place Today: Pisces (throughout the week, until Saturday)

Lunar Reading:

I know it has been a while since I last posted the Weekly Lunar Reading with Magical Attributes. Most of you already know that my beloved father passed away very unexpectedly on February 15th. It's taken a while to get back into a routine of things and I don't know if they shall ever be called normal again. Allowing myself to make the time to meditate, relax and allow the universal energy to flow through me hasn't been my top priority the past few weeks. I don't enjoy the emotional outbursts of sorrow when I am in a deep meditation so I haven't done one in quite a while. I'm finding that my physical and emotional self isn't pleased with this change in routine. The lunar reading today reflects a little more than usual on our own personal mental and physical health.

Many of us are feeling the urge to be outside more, connect with our roots and plant our seeds in the moist soil. The cold and long nights of Winter are dwindling away and making room for the much needed sunlight and warmth. Like SuperMan, we too need to recharge in the rays of the sun. There is a good chance your creative side is kicking and screaming for some new ideas and actions. With the new moon approaching, it is suggested that you may want to broaden your horizon. Take a chance on something different or out of your unusual habits.

As the seasons change, so do our physical and emotional selves. You are like a tree that grows with the seasons, ever evolving and always beautiful. Just as the tree needs proper sunlight, water and care so do you. Your body is a tapestry of love and light. You are sacred and part of this universal energy that flows with and through all things. It's time to pull yourself out of the slump you have been in for the past several weeks and for some it has been months. There is no need to continue to dwell on the 'what ifs' or 'could have beens'. You are here right now and only you have the choice to give them thought or to release, thus relieving.

To say you have no choice or choices in this life is no different than saying you don't know how to breath. Every minute of the day we are faced with choices that always have a ripple effect and reaction. We can choose to live in sorrow that a loved one passed or we can choose to love their ancestral energy and connect with it on the spiritual side. You can choose to fall into depression and make the loss of the human shell your only thought. I choose to celebrate a sacred life. I choose to acknowledge his and the ancestral/cosmic energy for guidance, prayer and sacred visions. The second we are born into this beautiful world we begin to grow older and become closer to our mortal death. We are spiritual beings and our physical self is only a temporary shell. I choose to celebrate the life I have and the life of others both the physical and spiritual beings.

If you seem to be having a hard time coming out of the winter blues or other circomstances, then maybe you need a good cleaning for your spirit and soul. A while back I posted a creative Egg Cleansing. This form of ritual is perfect for Spring, specially because it involves an egg. The method allows one to manifest and release. The upcoming new moon the 26th would offer the perfect celestial time with the moon phases and planetary alignment.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

During and before a new moon it is important that we take the time to cleanse our own self. After all, you are the most vital magical tool you have in all of your collection of crystals, stones and other magical and light working devices. I highly suggest using this week for you and only you. Allow yourself the time this week for meditation, relaxation, self beautification and a good old fashioned spiritual cleansing as well. There are many ways you can 'charge' and renew yourself. You can always try for a cleansing bath or shower ritual, adorned by candles and relaxing scents. A day laying on the ground under the sun and watching the clouds would be advised as well. Try your hardest to obtain from magical work this week involving problem solving with others or communication barriers. As of next week and after your relaxation time these conflicts or issues will seem to dwindle down to nothingness and they will be totally irrelevant.

I find it an important practice to always acknowledge and honor any celestial events, including certain moon phases. Anytime during the next three to five would be proper to do a blessing aloud towards the beautiful moon.

Rainbow Tree's ~ New Moon Blessing
Pray to the moon when when only her aura is seen.
Though I can not see her body I know she still gleams.
Her beauty though shadowed is still bright.
She brings me renewal with this sacred light.
New energy and light for tomorrow.
I will be released of any remaining sorrow.
Pray to the moon when only her aura is seen.
Only a sliver of her beauty and powers do gleam.
I thank the moon and the moon thanks me.
I connect with all that is, even the lone standing tree.
It is time for Luna to set my spirit free.
Tomorrow I will begin a new way to see.
So mote it be.

Your Mission for this week:

Love yourself and those you live with. Live this week as if only you knew you were going to pass your earthly shell and leave this world as of next week. What would you change in your life? Who would you spend time with and what are the things you would do? Be realistic with your current financial state and lifestyle. Make memories this week that will last a lifetime, no matter how long or short that life is. Be the life of the party, share your youthful stories, love and live for today as if tomorrow never existed and leave no regrets.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

It's been a while...

Visit GivingEarth.com for more unique graphics!

It's been a while since I have had the courage and the ambition to take the time to sit and write with my blog. The time these days seems to fly by. I can't believe it has already been a month since my dearly beloved father abruptly and unexpectedly passed away. There were days of denial in the beginning and nearly a month later I still find I miss him as much as I did the day after he passed. Some days the reality that he is physically gone sets in harder than others. These are the days I find it hard to look outside and see the circle of stones where we used to have our bonfires. There are other days where I know my dad is at peace and where he is supposed to be. I trust in the universe that everything flows with perfection and what happened was the perfect timing. A month later and still a shock yes, but more accepting of the circumstances.

As a daughter I knew a day would come when I would lose one or both of my parents. It's still hard because of the unexpected circumstances surrounding his physical death. If my dad was having a good day he would recite an old native american sang, "It's a good day to die." Indeed it was perfect for him. As a wife and a mother my heart aches for my mom, Earth Heart. She lost the love of her life. After nearly 30 years she is alone without her soul mate to share her days.

I've spent the past few years living by the motto; Live & love for today as if tomorrow never existed. With the dis-eases and medical issues I have dealt with I have learned that life is way to short and you never know what tomorrow will bring. The honesty of the situation is none of us knows if we or our loved one will be alive tomorrow. So please, I beg of you, love for today with our any regret.

Sometimes I feel like I could go on for hours about my dad. I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. He was one of the worlds best fathers. There were many that called him Dad or looked up to him as a role model becasue of his caring and compassionate ways. In his eyes he had many children, more than just those of his own blood and he loved us all! Even those who only knew him a short time felt a kinship in spirit or had an enormous amount of respect for who he was and how he lived his life. He truly loved and lived for today as if tomorrow never existed.

The initial shock of my fathers abrupt passing is finally wearing off. His residual memories and energy still floating about the various places he has been and continues to go in his spirit form. I feel him around us when the ancestral energy is present. I can't help but refer and think about the dream/vision I had with the ancestors just a week or so prior to my dads passing. I find it interesting that all his family was gathering and the old man placed the burning smudge stick in my chest. I can't help but wonder if this was part of them letting me know and them gathering for his arrival.

I will soon begin again to post the Weekly Lunar Readings & Magical Attributes along with the Oracle Message from the Fairies on Tuesdays. I will also be adding more of the Nature's Remedies and other misc. posts. I have to remind myself that the world doesn't revolve around me or my family during this time. Everything continues to flow as it should and we must not put our entire life on hold.

There will be weeks here and there that I may not get around to the normal postings. I apologize in advance for this. Under the current circumstances Tom (my hubby), Destiny (my daughter) and I will be moving from our home in late June to relocate 80+ miles away with my mom (Earth Heart). I feel this is how it s supposed to be and according to the universe I must be right. ;-) The way things are going are leaning towards that way and seem to be out of our hands for the most part. We are currently behind 6 months on our mortgage becasue of Toms drop in hours at work. He is currently laid off now and we are still awaiting his first unemployment check. Unfortunately the amount of unemployment is about a 1/4 of what he normally brought home.

Things in our life are changing quite rapidly and dramatically. We dropped our medical insurance over a year ago. It was a choice of groceries on the table or insurance. I do like to eat so we felt it best to drop the insurance. We've changed our spending habits the past several years, simply by choice to be more sustainable and get back to basics. Between his hours dropping even more and now the lay off, we have had to make a choice between groceries and house payment. My mom will need us at her property to create and tend to the garden so she can continue to can and prepare of the future. Tom will assist in doing the property chores that my dad had once handled. In a way I am looking forward to going home where I grew up but on the other hand I find it difficult to simply walk away from all Tom & I have created together. I believe the universe is calling for us to go back home with our families and no matter how bad things can appear at our home front, I trust the universe has a grand plan for the end result. I'm just along for the cosmic ride, so I will go with the universal flow of things.

In the mean time we are dong everything we can to scrounge up side jobs and work to keep our car and truck. We know and have accepted that we will lose the house and many of the 'stuff' that resides in it. Yes, it will still be hard to walk away and I'm sure I will cry. This farm and property here have been our home since September of 2001. I will miss my organic produce stand, the pond and the creek that runs like a moat over 3/4 of the property. But this is all just stuff that can be replaced. I still have my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter and all of us are alive, so there for I feel blessed!

The past couple of weeks have been a little aggravating for me but I presume they will begin to lean toward to positive side of things again. Last week I had my first wisdom tooth pulled. For years they have been bugging me but two of them got infected and abscessed. The one was easy to get out a good pull and it was gone. Yesterday I went to have the other one on the bottom pulled and don't you know after two hours they were still fighting with it while I was in tears and practically screaming. The dentist couldn't get it out without cutting my gum, shaving my jaw bone a little and breaking it into pieces. Thus I was rushed to an oral sergeant, knocked out and had surgery and stitches done yesterday. We had to borrow a chunk of the money for the initial dentist visit. Just to pull my tooth was $200. They were unable to pull it as I mentioned above so my bill is now $855. from the oral sergeant. We had to pay half up front and the rest in the next three months. I have no idea where I will get the money or ho I will pay back what we borrowed. I'm trying not to stress about these things out sometimes it is difficult. Last Thursday I heard a couple of male cats fighting out back so I ran outside to scare them apart and avoid any more fur flying. I began to chase them and when I got off the patio and onto the wet ground I hit a mud puddle. Unfortunately I slipped in a big way causing my left knee (the leg that already has the bone marrow bleeding) to go inward and tare a ligament. Seems I tore my MCL and I am now in a brace and on crutches for a few weeks. Shewwww.... It has to get better now. I still look at it as an opportunity. Obviously I am supposed to be down to focus on something. I just haven't figured it out yet. ;-)

I haven't checked my website or Etsy shops in a month or since my dad passed. I don't even know if all my stuff is still listed on there or if they have expired. I should go check that out either today or tomorrow. My Etsy shops and items may be he only thing to help us skim by for a little while.

All and all I expect things to get better. They always do. I have seen some of the most beautiful situations or gifts come from the most negative aspects of life. I have hope and faith that things will get better and they are going as planned by the universe. Life is too short to live in the past or dwell on the what ifs.

On a positive note, I have finally received my credentials and documentation of becoming a High Priestess in the Druid, Pagan and other earth based spiritualities. I was also recognized and given the credentials as a Spiritual Healer for my many studies and life experiences. I hope to scan and post my credentials very soon. I look forward in the future to doing House Blessings, Aura cleansing, spiritual smudging, handfastings, commitment ceremonies, life celebrations for birth and death and much more. I'm very excited to be officially ordained and recognized as a Reverend, High Priestess and Spiritual Healer. I only wish my dad could have seen my accomplishments in person. Though I know he is here in spirit and sees them now. I also know he is proud of his baby girl.

I'll continue to resume posting the normal posts now that the main commotion of everything has finally settled down a bit. I know things will never be the way they used to be but now it is time to make anew.

All my love to my readers, friends and followers. Your words of encouragement and support are greatly appreciated!
