I apologize for my absence. It’s been a pretty interesting few weeks.
I decided to do a Past/Present/Future reading for next week. The overall message is manifestation. Many of us are looking to bring something into our lives, realize long-held dreams, make the changes that we feel will enhance our lives. But how many of us stop to contemplate what must be done before this can happen? The Faeries are here to help.
THE PAST – The Queen of Shadows
Everyone has a Shadow Self. The aspects of our personality that we don’t want to look at. The experiences we’ve had that, while they have shaped us, have also hurt us. Things that we have locked away. Unfortunately, there are times when people or situations will trigger those shadow issues and we are blindsided. We react in ways that are contrary to who we are and those fear-based reactions can be traced back to those old wounds.
When we work to manifest something in our lives – a new job, a new home, a new relationship, financial abundance – the Universe always asks us to do some spiritual housekeeping first. It’s like a trade. Have you ever attempted to manifest something, only to find that the opposite happens? The world isn’t against you. There are just some lessons you need to learn before the manifestation can occur.
For example : in order to experience financial abundance, you have to appreciate your current financial situation. If you do not show gratitude for what you already have, then you can’t possibly attract more. If your finances aren’t in order, that is a sign of disrespect for the money you already have. Taking a look at your financial situation, especially if it isn’t ideal, can be very difficult. Being honest about how you arrived there isn’t usually a positive experience. But in doing so, you can amend previous patterns and make serious decisions on how you can do things differently in the future.
The Queen of Shadows is here to remind us that we all have a shadow side. Things we don’t want to look at. But if we continue to ignore the past then we will not achieve what we want in the future. Now is the time to shed some light on what is holding you back.
THE PRESENT – The Dreaming
What is it that you REALLY want? Many of us are afraid to dream. Afraid to ask for what it is we truly want. Perhaps this is because we feel undeserving. Or perhaps we are afraid there “isn’t enough to go around” and that if we ask for X that means that someone else has to go without.
The thing to remember is that no two dreams are identical. They are as individual as the dreamer. So go ahead and dream! Whatever it is you wish for will manifest in exactly the way it is meant for you.
Dreaming isn’t doing. In this case, that’s a good thing. Dreaming gives us the opportunity to explore what it is we want, to make plans, to see what may happen if we take this path or that.
Sometimes dreaming enables us to find solutions to problems. It can also bring clarity to what it is we truly want. So go ahead and dream!
THE FUTURE – The Sorcerer
This interesting little man may not look like it, but he is one of the most powerful residents of Faerie. Every wish has consequences, a price to be paid. It’s not always dire, but it is necessary.
For example, you may dream of living in Hawaii. I can understand why. But if you live some distance away, you will have to face leaving your friends and family behind. That is the price of your dream. It may be something you have to become comfortable with and that may take a bit of time.
The old saying “be careful what you wish for” applies here. Think carefully before you call upon The Sorcerer. He will help you if it suits his purpose, but there is a price to be paid for that help. This comes back to The Queen of Shadows. If you want to embrace the new, you must release the old and that isn’t always easy.
It could be that when he shows up, you experience this flash of insight and know exactly why the two of you have come together. Definitely ask him what you long to know, but be prepared to return the favor.
