This week, I was so excited to be starting Doreen Virtue’s Fairyologist course, I have had trouble thinking about anything else but fairies and other elementals.
I have felt the fairies around me from time to time, but I haven’t yet learned to see them.
When I started doing this course, I felt the light and joyful energy of the fairies, and naturally I wanted to feel more of that, because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to feel light and joyful?
We humans, on the other hand, tend to have a heavy negative energy, especially when we become depressed by world news, by arguments going on in our vicinity, or by associating with negative people.
We really have to remember to shield ourselves from others’ negativity, and ask Archangel Michael to help us remove any negative energy which we have picked up. Also, even if we avoid the news on tele, we still learn a lot of depressing news from other sources.
For instance, I hear so many sad stories on facebook about animals being ill-treated. Some people may suggest that I should unfriend those who post bad news. But if we live in complete ignorance of the events going on in the world, we may never know the best places to direct our loving energies for change.
For instance, during the week, I learned of the death of an elephant who had been giving tourist rides in extreme heat conditions in Cambodia.
This story particularly touched my heart, as I had just finished reading a novel, Leaving Time, by Jodi Picoult, which was about an elephant sanctuary. Throughout the novel, the author had woven the details of the cruelty which we inflict on elephants in circuses and zoos, and also in the wild, where they are hunted for their ivory.
Elephants, like all animals, deserve the right to live a natural joyful life, and be treated with respect. Yet through our actions, we make so many animals’ lives a misery.
So when I heard about the death of the elephant in Cambodia, I was upset.
I wondered how fairies managed to stay so light and joyful. Did they, too, become upset by the ill-treatment of animals?
I meditated on this question, and received the answer that fairies, too, become upset by these incidents. Fairies, however, have mastered the art of living in the moment. They become upset and then they let it go. They give their pain to God to transmute into joy.
I would love to get some lessons in that. I am certainly going to be asking for help from the fairies with those lessons.
I know that a lot of people question whether fairies are real. I, too, used to think that fairies were only the make-believe beings of ‘fairy tales’. But have you ever considered where the inspiration for fairy stories came from?
I learned a number of years ago, from Doreen Virtue’s books, Fairies 101, and Healing with the Fairies, that fairies are real.
Most people believe in angels, and are quite willing to accept that each person on the Earth has their own guardian angels, as well as other angels which help them from time to time. Fairies are nature angels. They, and the other beings of the elemental realm, help nature and animals, just as our angels help us. Fairies, however, live closer to the Earth than angels, so, unlike angels, have egos.
I know that the fairies would love me to remind everyone reading this blog the lesson that Doreen has been reiterating in her course: If you want to connect with the fairies, the best way to do that is to care for the environment and animals:
Pick up rubbish wherever you find it
Avoid harsh chemicals which pollute our beautiful planet
Buy organic to reduce the use of harmful chemicals
Make animal welfare a priority
Buy only cruelty-free cosmetics
Reduce your intake of animal products (especially factory-farmed), become vegetarian, or vegan if possible
Do not support places and industries where animal cruelty is endemic – circuses, tourist animal rides, horse racing, greyhound racing, rodeos, bull fights – basically anywhere where the source of income takes priority over animal welfare
Support animal sanctuaries
Speak out to end live animal exports
Consider the consequences of your actions, on the environment, on animals, on other humans, on plants, and on the fairies, in all that you do.
I am so looking forward to connecting more and more with the fairies, and to being a qualified Fairyologist, so that I can help the fairies to make this world a better place for us all to live.
Even though there are fairies wherever plants and animals live, there are a lot more about in wild places. So if you are going to any wild places in the coming days, be sure to look out for the fairies there.
I would love to hear of your own experiences with fairies.
