Easy Days for Awesome Living

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It’s time for me to say hello to you and hope that you’re moving through the concert of life with a full appreciation of the music.

When I spend time with music full of texture and depth, I’m able to fully appreciate that life IS truly full of complexity, simplicity, deep feelings, passion, softness, grace…. The list is endless.

So, in honor of that, I’ll share with you a fairy I made for Cricket Blue, an incredible musical duo that has been filling me with appreciation for life.

And, a fairy for YOU!

All the best,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Love for Us All

Hello Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It’s a been a busy month and a half since I’ve last posted.

Luckily, we’ve arrived in summer and I’m happy to say that the card I drew from the Bluebird Fairy Deck to guide us through this season is-


Oh, the ‘Fairy of Love for me!’ I feel like every where I turn she’s popping up to remind us to do this. Yes! ‘Open the door and let it in.’

Lena from the Power Path Seminars and School of Shamanism writes in her summer solstice post-

“This solstice supports family, home, nurturing, and taking care of your container, your body and your self care. The energy is feminine, creative, fertile and supportive to collaboration, honoring of Mother Earth and Mother figures, and feeding the seeds that you are planting for new projects and ideas. We are focused on honoring the sun as well, taking in the energy of that life force and filling ourselves up with it.”

I hope you can take in this wisdom.

Wishing you all well.

With much love,

Emily and the Bluebird Fairies

Locating the 'Edges of Oddness'

This morning I received an email from Mary Pratt who said “The Fairy who appeared this morning inspired my daily poem.”

Her fairy was-


Hurray for the ‘Fairy of Around the Edges of Oddness.’ My friend Tracy Thresher used that phrase in an explanation and the words stayed in my head till one day they crept out as a fairy.

I asked Mary if I could share her poem and her daily fairy practice and she agreed.

Mary’s poem is an amazing description of where you won’t find the ‘edges’ and where you might. (there’s a link to it below) I look forward to sharing it with Tracy because I think he will enjoy its resonance.

Regarding her daily practice Mary said- I’ve just been picking a fairy out of the pack every day—in a fairly orderly way—the one on the top—since Cathy gave them to me. When I’ve been through the whole deck, I’ll shuffle and start again. The Chosen Fairy is hung up on a kitchen cabinet so I can see it off and on all day. I like them so very much!

I love hearing this.

Do you have a story to tell about how the fairies play a part in your life in a daily way? Or, like Mary, art inspired by the fairies?

I would love to know because I’m developing a home on our website for the Bluebird Community. You can find Mary’s poem here.

We are thankful to be a part of your lives.

Onward and Upward!

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….

Letting It All Be Ok.jpg

The ‘Fairy of 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’s called The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. It shares the stories and outcome of a 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 all be okay.’

We’re wishing you all the best!

Happy Spring!!!

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!
