I recently had the honor of creating two fairy magic themed medicine bundles and as I was doing the write-up I realized I haven't posted about what I know for certain about fairies.
Being able to say you know something for certain about fairies is a treat so I thought I'd share.
Fairies do not dream.
While fairies enjoy the idea of dreaming, they have no need to heal on an unconscious or subconscious level. They are beyond us in that way, but still, fairies do envy our ability to dream and fantasize. It seems novel to them, even if a bit archaic. They don't need to create healing picture puzzles in their minds or to try to figure out their "issues" in distorted dream code when their realm is so vibrant and layered on its own. Plus, who has time for dream analysis when your world is disappearing?
Yet, they love to view our dreams and if you fall asleep outside, be assured that fairies are gathered around with their versions of popcorn and Junior Mints to see what kind of entertaining madness you'll unknowingly share. Our dreams are like drive-in movies or fairy television!
Green opal under your pillow will help you reach a deep state of sleep and this invites the fairies in…not only to watch what is as captivating to them as Downton Abbey is to us, but also to (occasionally) be of service.
Sometimes, when we're sorting out an issue in a dream, a fairy might become impatient and think the whole “movie” is predictable and exasperating. It's like us rolling our eyes when the girl goes back in to the house where the axe murderer is and doesn't turn the lights on. Sometimes certain fairies might become so disenchanted with our storyline that they cannot be held back by the others and quickly reach in and do a little shifting so we’ll move on to something more interesting!
Did you ever wake up with the solution to a problem that seemed impossible the day before? Perhaps with a feeling of lightness and relief over an issue that only hours earlier caused stress and maybe even panic?
Well, this usually means a fairy was terribly bored and essentially reached for the remote because your mysterious and complex (to you) problem was horrifically boring.
Don't take it personally, just be appreciative and accept the magic.
Fairies also love the softened up human versions of fairy tales, (which they find sidesplitting-ly hilarious by the way), but they do take our animal spirit medicine seriously and because of this, they agree that green opal is a good stone for people with bear and rabbit totems.
And that is what I know for certain about fairies. Do you have any information to share about fairies or mermaids or selkies or unicorns or dragons? Please feel free to share.
I wish I could show you...
when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.
