Letting it All Be Okay

Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

People often ask me if I’m always so positive and I often respond with “No, that’s why I have all these fairies around me.”

The fairies are here, in part, as support for the lifelong lesson that our best character developments come, at times, through adversity.

And, just in time for this blog writing, I’ve come across a newly drawn fairy that supports this idea. Please join me in welcoming….

The ‘Fairy Letting it all be okay.’ I love her enthusiastic words saying “Yes. Let’s Let it!”

I’m reading a book my mother gave me for my birthday. It called The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. It shares the stories and outcome of week-long visit between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu

When the 8 pillars of Joy were introduced I felt I was given a great gift. Now, when I find myself in a situation that feels really thick in my mind OR I’m having a feeling of tightness in my chest OR I’m flustered by my inability to fit all the things I want to into a period of time, I think of them.

They are: Perspective, Humility, Humor, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Compassion and Generosity.

Just thinking of them, takes me to a better place where it’s easier to relax, breathe and, yes, move into ‘letting it be okay.’

We’re wishing you all the best!

Happy Spring!!!

Fondly,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Happy Lunar New Year!

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

We’ve begun the Year of the Pig!

Every year I get excited about the largest holiday celebrated on Earth, Chinese New Year.

It begins on the first new moon of the year and continues on until (15 days later) that moon is full. The days between these two lunar happening each has a focus. Like the Birthday of Millet and the Day of Stone.

The final days are devoted to the creation of lanterns for the final event of the holiday, the lantern festival. So, as we welcome this huge full moon, millions of people will be dancing in the streets.

Isn’t that all great fun?

Good bye, kind Year of the Dog. Hello, you wonderful Golden Pig!

From what I’ve gathered, this year will bring us all fortune of many kinds. So, please find ways to enjoy good food and allow your body to do fun things.

“Gung Hay Fat Choy!” says my friend Lucy.

Happy New Year!

Fondly,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies.

p.s. Our hand will be in the ‘Show of Hands’ at Penny Cluse from March 4th till it’s auctioned off on 28th.

Happy New Year to All!

Dear Friends,

We hope you’re resting after a full holiday season of doing, being and feeling much.

This first weekend holds the first new moon of the year. It’s a wonderful time to sit still and allow the new in. I was looking through fairies today and found this one and it seemed perfect to share with you all.

Onward we go with our wishes and dreams and intentions.

Be well and do have fun!!

Happy, Healthy, Hollydaze to You!

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

The season of light is around us.

Many years ago I made a commitment to myself to move through this time by enjoying the lights of the season, the music and the opportunities to gather together.

Last night at the Hive Open Mic I performed a piece that did just that. Together I and the audience sang 3 songs and in each we did something together. In one we rang bells, in another, we thought of moments that held Compassion, Creativity and Connection and acknowledged times when we had obstacles that kept us from them. Finally, we turned the lights down low and held little votive candles while singing and humming a song together. In the darkness we made silent wishes for ourselves and then rang ourselves back into the rest of the evening of performance.

I wish all of these things for you in this season.

And…I hope I see you. It’s been a while since I’ve had my Fairy Card Reading sign out. Next weekend at the Hive Pop-up Shop and Holiday Party I’ll be doing just that. Please stop in if you can and say ‘hello.’

I’ll be in touch again soon.

Much fondness to all of you,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Flying Geese

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

Three weeks ago I began to conduct a workshop that playfully supports the growth of community awareness. It’s called “Inner Goose Certification.”

At the foundation of this workshop is a text that came to me in a remarkable way this summer called ‘Five Lessons of Geese(click to read).

The premiere was at the Hive Open Mic on October 5th and here’s a Fairy to Celebrate its advent:

As we move forward in these uncertain times it’s important to find community. A wonderful assistance I’ve found for this is Jen Hofmann’s American’s of Conscience Checklist (click to connect). She’s a fan of Bluebird Fairies and I’m a fan of the way she’s engaging us in positive actions that assist us in creating communities we want to create.

On we go!

Have a great day!
