World Without Wonder

World Without Wonder

In a world without wonder.
An imagination-less society.
The trees never dance
The birds bare no song.
Mans heart is blackened.
His eyes buried deep in his skull.
Society never questions.
Not one word is said.

In a world without wonder.
A dragon no longer soars among clouds.
Books are shelved.
Enchanted realms forgotten.
Nature disregarded.
Dreams wither away.
Stars fall without a wish.
No one seems to notice.

In a world without wonder.
Dandelions never feel a breath.
A forest shows her scars.
Greed becomes our love.
Life seems less important.
Nothing is left sacred.
The hope of tomorrow dies.
No one seems to notice.

Oracle Message from the Fairy Realm "Higher Consciousness"

Original Drawing ~ Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to relay a message for those that are open to listening. When needed or as requested from the fairy realm, an oracle reading with the Fairies is done to receive their guidance and thoughts. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read. Their messages always resonates with many around the globe.

The message received this reading is:
"Higher Consciousness"

You are being urged to take frequent walks in nature. Make time away from noise and stress so you may hear the voice of your higher conscious. Try quieting your life and mind a bit so your higher consciousness can become loud and clear. When we self defecate, talk aloud or put ourselves or others down in anyway, we are going directly against this voice and often find it completely voided out. Try going about your day without all the little cluttered thoughts of; who did this, where does this go, what about this, and so on. Get rid of them! Those thoughts, especially if spoke aloud clutter your mind, taking up space for your true and higher consciousness.

Your recent and soon to be dreams, thoughts and aspirations are coming from the spirit realm (meaning god/goddess/spirit/energy). For a while now you have been seeking some form of divine guidance and your higher consciousness is now beginning to answer. If you're still having a bit of trouble hearing your higher consciousness try some deep meditations for release and openness. If these don't seem to work, find that quiet time and confront the universe aloud. Know your right to higher consciousness and let the universe know that you feel ready and aware. Remember, you must make the time for a quiet mind and release and cluttered thoughts to hear the voice of higher consciousness.

Soon you will begin to receive guidance from your true self, your higher consciousness. This way of thought is one with the divine universal wisdom and energy. Allow your consciousness to listen to love and kindness rather than fear or what ifs.

The fairies ask that you take this special time at least once a week to clear your mind, walk in nature and allow the voice to guide you perfectly through all areas in your life. You deserve this. Know your life is beginning to improve by allowing your higher consciousness to guide you.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I clearly hear and easily understand my higher consciousness and the inner voice of the divine spirit.

A Beautiful Mabon

The beauty of the Fall/Autumn Equinox is finally here. On September 22nd, we honor the changing seasons with the first day of fall, also known as Mabon. Mabon is one of several sacred lunar/solar events that takes place since the beginning of time as we know it. On this day we are provided with equal amounts of both night and day. Tomorrow the days will continue to become shorter and the nights will begin to grow longer and longer till we reach the Winter Solstice when the sun is reborn once more.

Mabon is a time of balance, and a good time to celebrate the stability of the hearth and home. It is the time of the autumn equinox, and the harvest is winding down. The fields are nearly empty, because the crops have been plucked and stored for the coming winter. Mabon is the mid-harvest festival, and it is when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest.

For some, it's a season to honor the darker aspects of the goddess, calling upon that which is devoid of light. For others, it's a time of thankfulness, of gratitude for the abundance we have at the season of harvest. No matter how you see it, Mabon is traditionally a time of balance. After all, it's one of the two times each year that has equal amounts of darkness and daytime.

Ways to Celebrate Mabon:
  • Show/Feel Gratitude ~ Sit down and make a gratitude list. Write down things that you are thankful for. An attitude of gratefulness helps bring more abundance our way -- what are things you're glad you have in your life? Maybe it's the small things, like "I'm glad I have warm running water" or "I'm glad my car is running." Maybe it's something bigger, like "I'm thankful I have a warm home and food to eat" or "I'm thankful people love me even when I'm cranky or spinning." Keep your list some place you can see it, and add to it when the mood strikes you.
  • Honor the Darkness ~ Without darkness, there is no light. Without night, there can be no day. Despite a basic human need to overlook the dark, there are many positive aspects to embracing the dark side, if it's just for a short time. Celebrate a ritual that honors that aspect of the Goddess which we may not always find comforting or appealing, but which we must always be willing to acknowledge. Call upon the gods and goddesses of the dark night, and ask for their blessings this time of year.
  • Autumn Cleansing ~ As autumn rolls in, we know we'll be spending more time indoors in just a few months. Take some time to do a fall version of spring cleaning. Physically clean your home from top to bottom, and then do a ritual smudging. Use sage or sweetgrass as you go through your home and bless each room. This ritual should be done to your aura as well.
Rainbow Tree's Mabon Balancing Meditation & Ritual

You will need:
1 glass bowl of water
1 white candle & 1 black candle (same size & height)

Do a basic circle casting and quarter calling before you begin this ritual. Place a protective cone or pyramid of purple energy over yourself. Know you are always safe in any magical work you are doing that is done with love and gratitude.

Place the bowl of water directly in front of you. On the left place the white candle and on the right side of the bowl place the black candle. Light each candle and say "Thank you" aloud to honor the element of fire. Repeat to honor the element of air when you blow the match out or the flame from the lighter is extinguished.

Repeat the following aloud:
God & Goddess of the divine, bring to me the balance of the season.
Tonight I dance in the dark shadows of our earth.
I honor the darkness for without it we can never have the light.
I thank you for the abundance of the season,
the flesh of the fruits and the warmth the sun brought us.
I know now is the time to honor the balance in all things.
For we can not feel love until we experience rage.
We could never understand peace if greed or chaos stayed away.
If we never experienced sorrow, we may never know true joy.
Without the darkness of night, there would be no light of day.
Without death, we might not value life and hold it so precious.
It is in the sacred balance that we find our serenity.
Allow my spirit to see and feel the balance of this universe.
Bring to me the light and dark divine.
Show me the ways of old on this sacred sabot.
I thank you and the ancestors that be.
As above, it is below.
So mote it be.
