The Reality of FairiesWritten by Skye Thomas
No, I have never seen a fairy, an angel, nor any other type of a spirit guide. But I swear there are times I think that if I spun around fast enough they'd be sitting there snickering at me. Today's one of those days. Quite often, I sit up late at night working too many nights in a row. I also have a two year old bouncing off walls first thing every morning. The combination means I am pretty much doomed to episodes of sleep deprivation every time my inner workaholic takes over. Not a big deal in and of itself, because all things come into balance and I'll end up spending a day or two lounging around doing a whole lot of nothing. Today was supposed to be one of those days. I went to bed giving myself guiltless permission to sleep in as long as I like. My teenagers had already offered to hang out watching cartoons with little one for me. But then those wee folk decided that I had something far more important to do today. Bright and early before anyone else was awake, I was woken up by a persistent little voice telling me to write about fairies today. "Okay great, but I'll do it later after I sleep in a couple more hours." No, you're going to do it now! And so nagging began.
I had thought we'd just sit here at computer and they'd start babbling about something or other and I could just channel something from that higher realm that seems to only open up by invitation and never by my own insistence nor with any real regard to my own deadlines and work schedules. No, they wanted me to come up with something on my own. "Go ahead, tell them your own opinions and understanding about fairies." So, I spent about five hours today going through other people's websites about fairies to try and find my own opinion. Don't ask me to explain why I do things like that. Mostly, all it did was reconfirm that I really love Amy Brown's work and I would love to have her completely redraw picture of a fairy taking leap of faith that's on my home page. I also remembered a lot of reasons that I've drawn some parallels in my own mind between angels, fairies, aliens, and spirit guides.
Here's an interesting explanation that I kept coming across today. I've had a long time love affair with fairies and am kind of surprised I never read this before. The story basically goes like this.... When Proud Angel was leaving heaven and other angels were following him out, Michael called out in a panic pointing out to The Father that all of heaven was quickly emptying. The Father demanded that gates to heaven and to hell both be closed and locked immediately. It was done. He then declared that whoever was in was in and whoever was out was out. Those angels who had left heaven but who had not quite made it to hell yet were stuck here on earth and had to find residence in hills, trees, and lakes.
Manifesting EffectivelyWritten by Roy E. Klienwachter
After years of studying process of manifesting and writing about it, I have come to this conclusion. The process of creating, itself is very simple. Letting go of our need to control it, is mankind's greatest challenge. The awareness of need for manifestation comes up in our wakened consciousness, when there is a desire or need brought to surface. We are made aware of our hunger when we feel pain, or clock nears a meal time. We are reminded that we need money, when we receive bill in mail. We become aware of need to increase our productivity, when we are presented with a low pay cheque that doesn't meet our expenditures. But how do we manifest things that we need or desire? In spiritual sense, all our needs are provided for. Our health and bodily functions are on auto pilot and are taken care of internally by a build-in consciousness. Our basic human needs are regulated from a lower level of consciousness. Our desires and wants come from ego at a higher state of awareness. However fulfillment of both needs and desires come from same place. Individually and together, we have created a system in physical world that supplies our needs. We are left to our own resources to create or manifest fulfillment of our desires or wants. The process of manifesting is a three step process...thought, word, and deed. First we are made aware of a desire (thought), I want more money! Then we declare (word) that we are going to do something that will bring us more money. And lastly we do it (deed). So, what is difference between having our needs met and fulfilling our desires? The big stumbling block to having our desires met, is our thought process. The very thing (thought) that causes us to be made aware of a desire, is thing that gets in our way of having it. It's our own individuality or thought process about a thing that limits us in acquisition of that thing. Because choices are endless, and ways are many, often we sabotage process and result is "trying." We spend more time trying to get what we want and less time actually getting it.
