The Good Wishes Around You

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

I hope this finds you taking a moment to check in with yourself.

In the midst of it all have you been feeling, hearing, thinking and reading about the eclipse?

I have. This all started for me when a woman came to our studio to get a Fairy Card Reading in preparation for the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

I asked her what it meant to her. She'd boiled it down to this-

"Lots of big endings and lots of big beginnings are occurring right now.  In the middle of it is a huge question mark.  We can't fight with the question mark right now."

After a wonderful 3-part fairy card reading (which I highly recommend) she left. I looked up and saw this fairy sitting on the card rack:

Here we are.  On earth. Doing the best we can.

In honor of this time on earth I looked to the wisdom of my We'Moon 2017 calendar. They say that during the time of this eclipse... 

'Allow the movable line that holds the tension of opposites to be ruthlessly clear.  Numinous realizations reframe the game.'

My hope is that on the August 21st those of you who experience "totality" are illuminated in a deep and special way.  

I hope the rest of us are able to tap into this too.

Please be well and do send reports from any vantage point you have.

Peace to all,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies.

The Grandmother Tree

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies

I hope your summers are being full of all that you need.

I'm thankful for the excitement that poured out after many of you read my last blog about becoming engaged.  I'd no idea what a fun energy and support would appear from this admission.  Thank you.

Today, I'm excited to share about this delightful fairy:  

For the first time I brought the Fairy Booth to a wedding and gave Fairy Card Readings to the guests. The card that kept coming up over and over was this one; the Grandmother Tree.

Since I started wearing my grandmother's engagement ring, a little more of her got reconnected to me.  So, on this wedding day, I was so happy to tell people about this fairy.  

"Emily, I think you will know many, many people in your life." She often said.  When parts of my life hold situations I can do nothing about I move to other spaces in this wide love in my life for support and grounding.  

This wedding day held a lot of exciting weather up on Adam Parke's hill in Barton, Vermont. Windswept Farm is its name. Many thunder storms moved slowly by us. And, for only a bit of the afternoon, did we had a serious downpour.

It did start to rain at 5:30 when the outdoor ceremony was about to begin.  So, the event was moved beneath a huge maple tree.  

Many people spoke and then Stuart's mother said.  "This rain is from Stuart's grandmother who loved him SO much.  She always said rain brought good luck and she's showering him with it today." 

Ah, the Grandmother Tree.

Open, Wide, Love,

Keep moving along your paths finding all of this along the way.

Thank you for your love of Bluebird Fairies.

Have fun out there.

All the best,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

 

Heart Thumping Love

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

I hope you're having a wonderful summer.

I took a week to be with my family in a house on the lake.  WOW. That's a wonderful thing to do.  So easily could I get used to sleeping with the sounds of lapping water in my ears.  

My fairy today is self selected.

A while back just before I was about to print what now makes up the original Bluebird Fairy Card Deck a friend suggested I check to see if a few might be missing.So I broke the one-a-day fairy drawing tradition and drew a bunch a fairies in one sitting.To assist me I made a drawing of all the circles that radiate out from us, titled each and then thought of the fairies that reside in each circle.  

The inner circle included this guy:

I love him because, for the most part, he's super general. Aren't we all driven by heart thumping love?

At times, though, he can be very specific - like the day the man I met when I first exhibited my fairy cards said "Hey that fairy looks like me!" Yes, Brian, my Fairy Prince, he does look just like you!

During our miraculous, oh-my-goodness-we're- all-together family event at the lake a wonderful thing happened to me. Brian presented me with an engagement ring, the ring my Grandmother wore. It's now on my hand.  I'm happy to share this story and hear all that flows forth when others hear it and recall to me their own stories. It's truly heart thumping love all the way through.

So, go on.  Find summer.  Find love in all of its many forms.  Take in the stories.

And have fun!

Fondly,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Feeding Your Bird Relationships

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies

I hope this posting finds you in good spirits.

I bet you've experienced this- You have a big project coming up. You talk about it a lot.  You feel it all around you. But, you've not really stepped into it....and then you do! There you find yourself, in a whole new terrain of energy and activity.  Sound familiar?

That's where I am. Right in the middle of The 'Fairy of the Day' app fundraising and creation.

With today's fairy I'll give you a sense of what I'm up to creatively.

Feeding you bird relationships.jpg

Ah, the 'The Fairy of Feeding Your Bird Relationships'.  

I had a conversation with the Governor of Vermont about when I should take my bird feeder down to avoid attracting bear.  He said "Don't take it down!  You've created relationships with these birds".  I didn't follow his suggestion but I did take a moment to think about the relationships I have going in my life on all different levels.

Suggestion: Feel and acknowledge the peripheral relationships in your life.  We love our birds!

Many of you who pick a fairy daily have created your own stories and meanings connected with the fairies. I know, at times, it can be helpful to hear a bit more about where the fairy came from. The app we're making will allow people the option to get a bit more background.  

(Eventually these thoughts will become a complimentary book for the Bluebird Fairy Deck.) 

So, I'm spending time each day writing about these fairies. It will take some time and, of course, many edits. If you have a desire to be a part of this process please let me know. And rest assured, I'm devising a way to make it not overwhelming.

And now, I'll give some love to you, dear birds, of my life-

I hope all that is brewing in your life is full and rewarding. Remember this is the time when so many things happen. Hold on to the ideas of leisure in all of this. We need to swim. We need to sit in the sun. We need to visit our friends and have them visit us. And we need to lovingly move our lives forward.

On we go!

Sincerely,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Doing Things Lightly

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

Here's an all-purpose fairy you can access any time:

After a Fairy and Demon Drawing Workshop a friend gave me this poem:

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard.

 Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. 

Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. 

Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them."                                                         -Aldous Huxley

Whenever you need this thought please find its fairy dancing all around you.  

Go lightly as you touch the realities of your life and smile through them.

Have fun!

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
