Have You Ever Met A Fairy?

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.” 
~ Nora Roberts

Hello, Lovelies!

Have you ever met a fairy? Do you want to?

If the answer is YES then I invite you to come join us on Saturday June 22 for a very special event.

You could call it a Fairy Workshop, and you would be right. My beautiful friend Sokli will be hosting the main part of our event, and Sokli is a fairy. How can she do this? I’ll be channelling her, so she can speak to you directly.

Sokli is going to speak about:

  • How to make friends with fairies
  • What fairies know about nature and the seasons and how this knowledge can help you
  • Important messages about the planet right now and why fairies need your help
  • Fun and interesting stuff that will help you to improve your wellbeing and health
  • How to create a crystal grid to energise food and turn it into healing medicine for your body or for a loved one or a pet

Together we’re also going to:

  1. Lead you on a Guided Meditation (you’ll receive access to a copy of the recording after the event so you can do the meditation whenever you want);
  2. do a little Winter Solstice colouring project;
  3. and make and activate a crystal grid (you’ll get to take this home with you too).

This event isn’t just a workshop though! It’s also a Tea Party! Saturday 22nd of June is Winter Solstice, and the energies support friendship, connection and celebration.

We’ll be serving a delightful assortment of sweet and savoury delights as a satisfying Tea Party Lunch. (Gluten Free and Vegetarian options available – you just need to let us know your special requirements).

There will be time to chat, to hug, to meet new friends and old. It’s the loveliest coming together to celebrate our shared love of magical happenings, ritual, intuition, nature, fairies, crystals and friendship.

Can you bring your children? Yes, of course, as long as they are old enough to enjoy the workshop content and engage in the activities.

Tables seat 8, so if you want to get a group together or sit with friends please let us know by emailing Trish Lyons at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com.

If you feel like making the occasion extra magical then dress up in your favourite Fairy Theme, or add a little Garden Magic to your outfit (think flowers, leaves, and all other lovely nature-themed goodness). There will be a prize for the Best Dressed, and some extra little surprises as well.

Of course, there will also be a goody bag for everyone because I never run an event without including a goody bag. All the best parties have them!

While you enjoy the party feel free to browse our Winter Solstice Pop Up Shop, which will have a delightful range of crystals and special spiritual and self-care items available. For purchases from the shop, we can take cash or card on the day!

Cost for this event is $104 all inclusive. This includes the workshop, High Tea, goody bag, crystal grid and access to a recording of the meditations after the event.

We are so excited for you to join us!

And if you live too far away to come to the live event? Stay tuned because we’ll have a special online package to share the magic with you, no matter where you live!

“You must try to have a positive attitude. It does not matter how small a person is. One can still change the future. Size is only a state of mind. You know – it is how you use your wits that counts. Nothing can stop us, if we put our hearts into it. Anything is achievable girls, anything at all!”
~ Nathalie M. Leblanc, Shrinking Forward

 

It’s no secret that I love Fairy Folk, nor that I have a very special friendship with a fairy called Sokli. (You can read more about Sokli here.) Fairies are often forgotten, as we look to the Angels, Guides and Spirit for help in our lives. Fairies like to provide support in practical ways. They encourage us to be kind to ourselves, each other and the earth. Sokli wants you to know that Fairies have their own wisdom, and are always happy to help those who ask.

Today’s oracle is all about tuning in to Fairy Wisdom to help guide you in your life right now.

This Oracle is full of lovely things, like crystal and flower essence guidance, as well as some tips about how to find Fairies for yourself.

Instructions for using today’s post

Scroll down through the following fairy images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.

When you have chosen your image scroll further down for your message; designed to help you feel loved, supported and guided.

Trust that you will be shown what you most need to know right now.

Love and Light,

Nicole and Sokli ♥ xoxo

♥ The Healing Messages and Gifts of the Fairies♥

Each Fairy image has a message for you.We have also selected a crystal and Flower Essence to support you at this time.  You could wear or hold your crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Flower Essence can be taken to help give additional emotional, physical and spiritual support.

 

1.  Flower Fairy:

Message – Flower Fairies come to help plants flower and fruit. They are here to remind you of the importance of playtime, doing things for the fun of it or to satisfy a curiosity, and to grow yourself by pushing your boundaries a little. Now is not the time for perfection. Now is the time for exploration, adventure and trying something challenging or new.

To connect with Flower Fairies sit somewhere where a  tree or smaller plant is flowering. Sit quietly and appreciate the blossoms with your whole heart. Watch them moving in the wind, or falling to the ground. Pay attention to insect visitors. When you feel truly connected to the flowers ask the Fairies to visit you or show you a sign that they are there.

Crystal – Green Aventurine

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Alpine Mint  Bach Flower Essence – Agrimony

 

2.  Bird Fairy:

Message – Bird Fairies act like Guides for birds, in the same way that we humans have Guardian Angels. They are here to help you overcome your fear of ‘flying’ so that you can boldly step forth and have success in using your talents and gifts. Bird Fairies guide you into new territory, and keep you company when only you can walk a certain path. They assist you to become confident and independent in using your new wings.

To connect with Bird Fairies, stand outside in the open air and call to them. Ask for one to come and guide you. Then pay attention to the birds that show up in your life. Know that your fairy will send you a sign to show they are with you.

Crystal – Citrine

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Freshwater Mangrove  Bach Flower Essence – Walnut

 

3.  Elven Seeker:

Message – Elven Seekers are on a path of learning. They also provide guidance and counsel for other Fairy Folk. They have a knack for asking the right questions, and they are deep thinkers. Elven Seekers can help you to acquire real mastery and expertise in your chosen area by opening your mind and self-awareness. They have a strong sense of social justice and environmental stewardship too. Elven Seeker reminds you that you came here for a purpose, and that you have gifts in teaching and counselling others.

To find an Elven Seeker to support you on your path, go to a place where there are old trees. Trees spread their branches and roots through the world, anchoring themselves into earth knowledge. Elven Seekers use this energy to help their own learning and communication with others. Sit quietly, connect with your tree, and then ask for a Seeker. You’ll feel them approach you, or they will give you a sign of their presence.

Crystal – Fluorite

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Alpine Mint  Bach Flower Essence – Oak

 

4.  Mermaid:

Message – Mermaids inhabit  the oceans and salt water places. They have an innate sense of freedom, but also one of safety. They spend most of their time in the water, but can also breathe air, and will happily come out of the water to sunbake and enjoy the world above the waves. Mermaids are here to show you that just like them, you have strong intuitive and psychic gifts. You live in the physical world, but can connect to the spiritual. They want you to remember your true nature.

To connect to Mermaids you can travel to the ocean and sit watching the waves. When you feel peace in your heart call them in to you. You can also listen to music featuring dolphins and whales, or ocean waves, and send a telepathic message, asking Mermaids to meet you in your dreams.

Crystal – Celestite

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Angelsword  Bach Flower Essence – Cerato

 

5. Forest Fairy:

Message – Forest Fairies live in wooded and forested places. They are social beings, and have great love for all plants and animals. When Forest Fairies appear to you, they want you to look after your body and physical well-being. They remind you to eat well, to drink water, to rest and to move and to get plenty of fresh air and sunshine. Step away from the computer or television. Go outside. Take some time for you, your well-being, your relationships, your sanity. Go meet your friends. Play with your pets. Stand barefoot on the ground and breathe in good clean air.

To make friends with Forest Fairies take a picnic blanket and some food, and go sit in a park, or near a garden or wild space with big and small plants. Allow yourself to relax and have a good time, in your own company or with friends, family or pets. Make a little plate of food for the Fairies and leave it on a corner of your rug. Ask for the Fairies to come join you! You’ll see their playful signs, or feel a sense of happiness.

Crystal – Carnelian

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Little Flannel Flower  Bach Flower Essence – Clemantis

 

6.  River Fairy:

Message – River Fairies live in the streams, rivers, ponds, pools and freshwater places. River fairies know that sludge and silt is stinky, but from it baby fish grow into bigger fish, water lilies put down their roots and grow, and during floods the silt washes up onto the land and rejuvenates the soil and plants. River Fairy wants you to know that difficult times and stinky places can sometimes help you grow bigger and stronger. Or get with the flow and start moving again. River Fairy understands cycles of life and regeneration. They also recognise when their environment is toxic and they help creatures move to a safer place. River Fairy reminds you to be brave, to dig deep, and to take something positive from every experience. Where are you in the cycle? Is it time to grow, or time to rest? Check your environment. Is it safe? It is healthful? Or do you need to move on?

River Fairies are caring souls, who enjoy quiet and solitude, although they have good friends too. To find a River Fairy, sit quietly by a river or body of fresh water. Be very still. Watch for sparkles of light, and ripples on the water where there is no wind.

Crystal – Septarian Nodule

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Old Man Banksia  Bach Flower Essence – Sweet Chestnut

 

7.  Crystal Keeper Fairy:

Message – Crystal Keeper Fairies look after stones and crystals, and often live inside them too. They can see what is beautiful within you, and help shine that essence out into the world. These fairies are very good at keeping secrets, but they also know how to share information. Crystal Keeper Fairy wants you to value yourself, to love yourself, and to have courage in following your dreams.

To find a Crystal Keeper Fairy look for a stone with a rainbow or sparkles in it! Another easy way to find one is to sit somewhere in nature where there are plenty of boulders and stones. Ask for a fairy to come and help you love and appreciate yourself more. Before you leave look for a stone that wants to be picked up and taken home. It will help itself be known to you. Trust!

Crystal – Clear Quartz

Flower Essence : Australian Bush Flower Essence – Five Corners Bach Flower Essence – Crab Apple

 

8: Elf Maid:

Message – Elf Maidens love to help creatures be birthed into the world. They also tend the sick, injured and old. You will find them anywhere where new life springs or where life needs extra support or transition. They are watching over the animals and birds, the insects and the hatchlings. Elf Maiden wants you to know that now is a good time for you to prepare and bring new life force into being. This could be around your own fertility, or about an idea being born and turning from a thought into a concrete reality. If you are unwell or lonely, know that Elf Maiden is here to keep you company and help you heal. Elf Maiden is nurturing and encouraging, supportive and wise.

Elf Maidens are solitary creatures, who have a highly attuned intuitive energy. If you are in need of their help, sit quietly in nature, or by a window, and let your heart call them in. Keep a crystal by your bed or desk, and a fresh flower or small leafy twig in a vase of water (or a healthy potplant)  to help them feel comfortable indoors.

Before we get back to Owls, let’s talk Fairies!

“There are things 
that make no sense,
that seem unreal,
that can’t be grasped, 
or understood,
or explained,
that maybe don’t even exist…
And still, somehow, those wonderful things touch and change our lives.
Isn’t it strange?” 
― Richelle E. Goodrich, Secrets of a Noble Key Keeper

 

I present this information to you only as story, as interesting background. Although it might be more…

In modern times we often think of fairies as tiny winged creatures, flitting through the flowers, drinking from tiny tea sets and amusing animals and children. But once, fairies were considered to be a race all their own, some larger than humans, some human sized and similar in form, and some quite small, perhaps just a few feet high. They were closely associated with nature and the supernatural, and were considered to have ‘magical’ powers.

When you track back into ancient Irish, Norse and Scottish genealogies the lines start to become blurred between legend, mythology and fact. This is especially true once you start to weave in the fairy folk to these ancient lines.  It was once accepted that fairies walked among us, lived in certain places, and married into the lines of the Ancient Norse, Irish and Scottish Kings.

When a death or an important change was imminent, the Fairies sent owls as messengers to herald these deaths or changes.

It is also believed that a handful from the ancient family lines, whose blood shares fairy energy, reincarnate over and over, maintaining the ability to connect with the ‘fey’ – the fairies and other creatures of those ancient times – creatures not human, and in their own way, magical.

Each ancient family had its own fairy or fairy clan, and these fairies (as my friend Sokli would say) are geographically specific.

Owls are strongly connected to the Fairy Realms, and often act as messengers for the Fairies.

When I lived in the Kimberley, a vast ancient part of North Western Australia, my aboriginal friends would tell me about the Owls, and how they come as messengers of the Wanjinas, the Sky People who are Spirit Ancestors.  Owls are the children of the Wanjinas…

Crystals for Highly Sensitive People

“Treating myself like a precious object makes me strong.” ~ Julia Cameron

I love working with crystals, and my gorgeous fairy companion Sokli is completely nuts for them. Because we’ve had such positive and strong reactions whenever we have blogged about being sensitive, we thought we might give you some suggestions for crystals to help you on your journey as sensitive souls.  These are stones I use often, and we hope you find them helpful too.

If you haven’t worked with crystals before and would like some ideas about how to do that, you can visit these posts for more information:

How to work with Crystals – A Four Day Exploration

Getting to know your Crystal – Day One

Healing with Crystals – Day Two

Using Crystals to Access Information – Day Three

Working with Crystal Grids – Day Four

But if all you do is wear a crystal or stick one in your pocket that’s enough too.  Enjoy some crystal magic, and embrace your beautiful sensitive nature!

Love and Light,

Nicole and Sokli ♥ xoxo

PS – If you would like us (me and Sokli) to channel and make you a healing necklace using a combination of stones chosen especially for you, please let me know, via a comment below or send me a message through facebook. – Update: It’s fine to leave your name below, even though the list is getting a little longer.  This is a beautiful task for me to do while I am recuperating, and it gives me so much pleasure.  It may just take us a little longer to complete them all. Oh, and you can find me on facebook at Nicole Cody

Here’s our crystal suggestions…

Mookaite – Australian Jasper Mookaite is a gently shielding stone that helps us to think clearly and to break patterns of self criticism and negative thinking.  It aids us in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas, and to embrace change. On a physical level it helps us to strengthen our immune and endocrine systems, and is especially useful for providing grounded, stable energy. Very nurturing and soothing for when you’re feeling depleted physically, emotionally, spiritually or all three!

mookaite

Black Tourmaline – This is my emergency go-to stone whenever I am scattered, ungrounded, shifting big ‘stuff’, or have had a big physical or psychic shock. I absolutely love Black Tourmaline, especially the rough form. It is so powerful but it feels gentle for sensitive souls like us.  Keeps you in your body, clears your head, rebalances your brain and helps the body eliminate physical and energetic toxins and impurities.  Cleanses the aura and opens and activates your Earth Star chakra which grounds you and anchors you into the Earth. Great to use four pieces in a grid, one at each corner of your bed, to promote sleep and to open you to heightened spiritual connection. Hold one in your hand and you’ll immediately feel the stabilising effects. An amazing stone.

Larimar – also know as the Blue Stone of Atlantis.  Larimar is a gentle but strong stone for enhancing spiritual and psychic connection.  It helps to reduce anxiety around who we are, and to bring a sense of peace and self-acceptance into our lives.  Larimar facilitates self expression, creativity, healing and clear communication. It’s especially good for starseed souls and those who feel like they just don’t belong to humanity somehow. It also has strong connections into the oceans of the world, the Pleiadean star system, dolphins and whales, and aligns our energy fields with those of the earth.

Pearls – Sokli assures me that ‘Pearls count, Nicole!’  She also tells me that ‘Men can wear pearls too!’ They are often overlooked as a crystal, and technically they are not a rock, but pearls have such a beautiful energy for sensitive souls. They are a great tool for protecting from and relieving emotional and psychic shock.  Pearls are nurturing for the emotions, they balance the heart chakra, reduce physical and all other forms of pain, and they gently help us to stay in our truth.  They also work on digestive and hormonal issues, reducing inflammation and bringing balance.  Pearls have been used to enhance fertility and to bring us back into natural sleep cycles.

Freshwater-Pearls-In-The-Mollusk

Fire Agate – A delicious form of Carnelian, this stone is perfect for those who suffer from adrenal fatigue, mental or physical exhaustion, chronic fatigue, ill health and sensitivities to foods or chemicals. It bolsters our energy, detoxifies the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, and helps to boost and rebalance our hormones and digestion. It also dispels self-doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity.  We love this crystal!
