The fairies come out to play today! Get ready to play with them. Dance and sing. Eat delicious things. (And leave some for the fairies.) Bask in the sun. Hold your face up to the rain. Lean into the wind. Let the surf curl around your ankles. Ready? Set? Go!
If you have a garden, set aside a small area for the fairies. No Humans Allowed! Fairies love chaos and change. Let the weeds grow. Fairies dislike rows and order. Cultivate an appreciation of wildness and spontaneity. Fairies love shiny, glittery things. Grow pretty flowers. Fairies are friends with butterflies and hummingbirds. Favor plants that winged things like. Fairies like to play jokes. Be willing to laugh at yourself.
If you don’t have a garden, find a wild place near you. Sometimes a vacant lot is the nearest wild place. Yes, fairies live in cities too; they are just harder to see. Walk past your wild place at least twice a day or sit there for a while if you can. Become attuned to the rhythm of the plants in your fairy haven. Become aware of the movement of the light in your fairy area.
Let the fairies bring joy to your heart. Let the fairies fill you with foolish hope and starry-eyed love. Let the fairies entice you to commit more acts of beauty and joy. - Susun Weed, from her Wise Woman Ezine, May 3, 2016.
