There’s So Much More to the Fairy Kingdom

We have this view that fairies are only available to us in out of the way places, but that’s just not so. We are all part of the dance of atoms, and this aliveness is mirrored in the fairy kingdom, which helps imbue our earth with more life, more healing possibilities.

It doesn’t matter where we live – this powerful kingdom is available to us when approached in love and respect.

How Trees Help Our Connection with Fairies

There are endless hints of the power of trees in fairy stories – but what exactly is possible here? How can we work lovingly and respectfully with trees to deepen our connection with the fairy world? Can we still work on this magical connection if we live in a town or city?

First up it’s important to spend time in places in Nature close to you – a nearby park or garden – wherever has a special or sacred feel. Know you are attracted to this place because the nature spirits here having something to share with you – a wise thought, a healing moment, a chance to slip deeper inside.

When you invest the time, even a short amount of time in places in Nature you love, you start to build a powerful bridge to this otherworldly dimension – a dimension that offers wholeness, wisdom and grace. When you spend time in your sacred place in Nature, you start to come into alignment with the elementals here. That’s when the deep magic of this connection will reveal itself to you. More below

How To Deepen Your Connection With Fairies

Everyone has experienced a connection with the fairy realm several or more times in their lives – they just didn’t realise it – especially if you were looking purely for little figures with wings. Who then are fairies? How did we lose our connection with these beings? And how, even if we live in towns and cities can we enjoy a profound, often mystical relationship with fairies?

Plant Consciousness Explained

So many of us ache to come into a profound connection with life at this time. We yearn to understand more of ourselves and the nature of existence – to live fully realised lives that are useful and fulfilling for ourselves and others, but how to do this?

‘Plants,’ Pam Montgomery reminds us, ‘are amazing spirit teachers and healers.’ They have amazing intelligence, and through them, we have easy access to their intelligence. This is a bio-intelligence that is connected to Gaia herself. Using common plants, Pam helps people access powerful initiations, which bring them into connection, to become fully human.

Pam Montgomery is an author and teacher who has passionately embraced her role as a spokesperson for the green beings and has been investigating plants and their intelligent spiritual nature for more than three decades.  She is the author of two books one of which is the highly acclaimed Plant Spirit Healing; A Guide to Working with Plant Consciousness. She teaches internationally on plant spirit healing, spiritual ecology and people as Nature Evolutionaries. She is a founding member of United Plant Savers and more recently the Organization of Nature Evolutionaries or ONE.

Timely Wisdom From Findhorn’s Dorothy Maclean

Scotland’s spiritual community Findhorn became a huge international success decades back, inspiring so many people across the planet, yet few appreciate the immense ongoing work needed to make it so. This remarkable community was born almost sixty years ago in the most unlikely circumstances – in a caravan park on a dry, windswept part of Scotland – when founders Peter and Eileen Caddy, and Dorothy Maclean found themselves out of work.

Living in a caravan and annex, and short on funds, they looked at ways to make ends meet, deciding to plant a vegetable garden. To her great surprise Dorothy found herself communicating with a garden pea, one of her most beloved plants. Dorothy’s love became the powerful bridge to a huge amount of wisdom as she tells in her classic, To Hear The Angels Sing.

The first message to come Dorothy’s way was to feel into the wind, into its essence and be at one with this essence, teaching us that connection with the nature realm is about ‘feeling into’ the web of life gently, respectfully, with an open heart and mind. Through Dorothy’s ability to listen, Findhorn’s garden went on to produce the seemingly impossible – forty pound cabbages and roses that bloomed in the snow.

Later she would teach that nothing is inanimate – that everything in our material universe is alive. In today’s terms we’d see this as the dance of atoms in the quantum field. She explained, for example, how when travelling by plane while teaching across the planet, she’d tune into the deva of the plane and thank it for its tireless work transporting people safely across the planet. When she landed in a different city she’d contact the deva there, asking she be of help here.

Dorothy challenges us in this moment with an earlier observation that ‘what we think is evil has some good in it.’ In these uncertain times we’re being given a massive opportunity to become still and to feel into the nature of things, and ask what’s required of us moving forward? How can we be of service to the planet? Amid the fears of the virus miracles there’s a ‘newness’ emerging – skies and waterways clearing for the first time in years, birds appearing. Surely this is a call for us quietly and powerfully to enter into a new relationship with ourselves and the web of life. Dorothy, who died a few days back, aged 100 also said, ‘Accept what you are give it time to blossom.’ What better time to do so than when in self-isolation.

New Zealand’s Fairy Folk – The Legendary Patupaiarehe

During Toni-maree Rowe’s research into Auckland’s volcanoes she found an intriguing Maori account of how the volcanoes came into being.  The story told of the Patupaiarehe, but who or what were the Patupaiarehe? 

‘In Maori tradition the Patupaiarehe (also sometimes referred to as turehu or pakepakeha) were the first people of New Zealand – the first Tangata Whenua,’ Rowe tells. ‘They are supernatural beings who are rarely seen, fairy creatures of the deep forests and mountains, their houses built from the swirling mists.’

Nature Helps With Tech Fatigue

Guess what? With all the time we’re spending on our devices our brains are getting tired, leading to brain fog, anxiety, depression and more. It’s impossible to concentrate when your brain is scrambled. A recent study looking at how to deal with brain fog came up with some intriguing results.

In this study people were given computer work that needed them to really focus. They were then split into two groups. One group then glimpsed a concrete roof. The second group looked out a rooftop meadow. When the results were analysed the latter group was found to make fewer errors and to work more consistently on their allotted task. The most astonishing finding was all it took was a forty second glimpse at nature to calm and reset the brain.

The Man Who Wrote Fairy Stories

Like many returning from the Great War, Massachusetts-born Henry Beston struggled with his demons. Wanting to rid himself of the horrors he’d witnessed serving in the volunteer ambulance corps, he began writing fairy stories. Previously Beston had taught at the University of Lyon, then at Harvard as assistant professor of English.

Beston’s senses began to awake to the healing force of Nature, after spending extended periods with the Navajo people of New Mexico, making friends with many, including an elderly medicine man Hastiin Klah. Then Beston was commissioned to write an article on the Coast Guard at Cape Cod. Visiting there, the spirit of the place spoke to him. Continue reading

Devas And Drug Regimes

A little while ago I sat with a girlfriend who was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer. She was in a quandary. She wanted desperately to live. She also wanted to take the natural healing route but, for whatever reason it wasn’t working. Her loving female oncologist was pleading with her to take the chemotherapy.

What, my friend asked, am I to do? As I gazed back at her my heart sank. What right did I have to give her advice? It was her soul journey. Then in a moment of clarity, I was told that despite the complex issues surrounding drug companies, those who work to bring new healing possibilities to the world only do so with the help of the devas.
