The faeries couldn’t be any more clear this week and I get the feeling that they are tired of us messing around. The message – loud and clear – is that we are to stop puttering around and get to work on some of these crazy amazing ideas that we’ve sort of pushed down and set aside. And while they recognize that not all of us have been resting on our laurels, all of us DO have something that needs to be brought to the surface, nurtured, and birthed. If you have been in the process of doing so already, continue reading because it would seem that you have more to look at and more to accomplish. You have done good work, but you are not done yet.
We start with Ilbe the Retriever. This cute little guy is the guardian of our hopes, dreams, and lost items (call on him to help you find whatever it was you set down this morning that seemed to just disappear). Under the category of lost items are the desires that we’ve set aside or laid to rest while we were off in the pursuit of something else. He’s pretty sure that the time is right for us right now if we’d just get on with it already! Meditate with him in order for your next step to be revealed. Even if you feel like you’ve already got things laid out, he can help you find the missing pieces that can get things moving a little more quickly and freely. There is a path to liberation, and he is more than happy to sniff it out for you.
Our next card is Penelope Dreamweaver. She is one of the Faeries of Inspiration, and what better follow-up could there be to Ilbe’s message than that? She understands that sometimes inspiration is subtle and hidden, and she encourages us to seek it out and to be open to it popping up in even the most unlikely places. She allows for us to move through our blocks and into a free flow of inspiration and expression by showing us that sometimes we need to break away from the humdrum world and retreat into a space of imagination and daydreaming. Connect into your childlike self and see the world through new eyes. Shifting our energy in new ways can create new and exciting results and release the worn out patterns that were holding us back.
Finally, we have Ta’Om the Poet. This guy also helps us to find our creative expression and he does so through prompting us to use curiosity to look into nooks and crannies that we’ve neglected to notice before. When we bound out into the world with open eyes and an open heart, we invite new and exciting experiences that we can then share with others. This opens the door to laughter, play, increased sensual/sexual energy and wonder. Ta’Om’s wings are not yet unfurled, and he reminds us to spread ours and fly. Connect into any blocks that are holding you back, use the curiosity that he and Penelope would have us develop, and find where energy can be released in order to align you with your highest good. We best serve ourselves by showing our true light, one that only continues to shine as we continue to honor it.
This week’s reading is from The Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud.
