I had to laugh when I drew ‘The Fairy of Trusting the Way’ because I just wrote about it two postings ago!
But, really, I’m not surprised. As many of you who also use the Bluebird Fairy Deck daily know, you get the cards you need. And, sometimes you need to hear the same message over and over for a while.
This fairy is beloved to many. During my Fairy Card Readings at the traveling Fairy Booth people take home the card that resonates with them the most. “Trusting the Way” goes home with lots of people.
That resonates nicely with me because I created the fairies to help me trust I would find my way when I was in the middle of making big changes in my life. And they’ve been lighting my way ever since.
We can’t, however, depend on the fairies alone. ‘The Fairy of Trusting the Way’ requires assistance from us. The Reverend Al Sharpton exclaimed several years ago at a Martin Luther King Day event:
“IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GOAL IN MIND TO HEAD TOWARDS HOW ARE YOU GOING TO KNOW WHEN YOU’VE ARRIVED?”
When we allow ourselves the opportunity to think about what we want, light, however dim, starts growing in the dark distance of our minds.
What do you want? A change? A new skill to grow? A new place to live? A new opportunity to experience? Something new????
Once the wish is made, however vague and unhinged from your current reality, relax and see how it unfolds.
Here’s a nice example. This picture of me as a mermaid delights me and the people who see it which allows me to know it has resonance and it’s not even clear why. And now I know.
I’ve been very excited about a Paddleboard Yoga Class I signed up for this summer. It just started yesterday. As I lay on my tummy and paddled out into the sun-lit evening on the bay I realized I was living the reality the picture had allowed to grow.
And, now, folk, off we go. Sit and Manifest
Move and Dream and Let the Magic Happen.
Onward and upward!
