This card tells me I need to spend a bit more time in the wilderness – perhaps hug a few more trees, sing with the birds, and re-attune myself with Mother Earth and the natural elements.

Here’s what the book says:

Card Meaning: Spend time outdoors, among the flowers, plants, and trees. Nature has powerful gifts that she wants to share with you, including ideas, information, and healing energy.

Description: When you are disconnected from Mother Earth, you may feel depressed or lethargic without knowing why. Earth, too, feels distraught when you don’t connect with her on a regular basis. She needs you to be amidst her bbeauty so that she can telegraph information to you. In this way, you’ll know best how to care for your planet.

By drawing this card, you’re being urged to spend time daily (even as little as five minutes) outside in nature. Remove your shoes, socks, or nylons, and connect your bare feet with the soil, sod, or sand. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths as you’re surrounded by the magical energy of nature. Mentally ask the fairies to help you with any issues you may have. Then, open your eyes and look for their flitting light, which is the first sign that you’re seeing the fairies that surround you.

Affirmation: I love being outside in nature. I feel energized by the sunshine, fresh air, plants, and animals. I take excellent care of every living being, including myself.

Intro: This is being extracted from my archives today in honor of the “Environmental Awareness” Fairy Oracle drawn in this morning’s Daily Dose. If I’m not mistaken, I wrote this when I lived in Tulsa, so about…. 6-8 years ago or so.

“Earth Alive”
Written by:
Wendi Friend

I am alive in the winds
You hear my voice
Whisper through trees
You feel my breath
Comb through your hair
Like what? Like fingers of
The Goddess herself

I am alive in the waters
You hear my love erupting
In waves of blue
Over You
You feel me touch you
Embrace You
Envelope and nurture you
Through life’s currents

I am alive in flames
Licks of fire fueled by desire
You hear me roar
You feel my heat
You know my warmth
From the Sun
From the Power of Knowledge
Gained by mankind —
Mankind — the only life form on Earth
Aside from Mother Nature Herself
With such ability to handle and control
beauty and destruction

I am alive in the Earth —
You nurse from me daily as you
Breathe my breath
Eat from me
And as you sleep
Cradled within my womb

I am alive
And I’d like to thank you
For recognizing me
As such.

“Environmental Awareness”

Environmental Awareness

Drawing this card today doesn’t surprise me, especially since I’m going out looking for new places to live.

Not long ago, we’d talked about leaving Kentucky all together, and the very thought of it broke my heart. I love Kentucky.  The idea of moving back to Las Vegas was mentioned, but I immediately knew that wouldn’t happen.  I can’t live in the desert. I can’t live in a place that’s overly industrialized.  I’m a nature girl. I need the great outdoors.  I need big trees, a variety of flowers, lots of critters, four seasons.  This is where I thrive.

The other night, I as I was drifting to sleep, I was chatty in that half-sleep kind of way, drifting on dreams of my new home.  I said I hope there’s a space I can set up an office, with a window facing east. I hope that window facing east provides a view of trees, a woodsy spot.  I love to sit in my desk chair, stare out the window, and get lost in the landscape of dreams.

Environmental awareness also asks that we stay attuned to the animals and the messages they bring to us, just like I did the other day when Crow was cawing at my sliding glass door, or when the raccoon ran across the road (which I didn’t post here) and I came home and immediately looked up his meaning in my books.  Animals speak to us… this card asks that we listen.

This card also asks that we do our part, if not a bit extra, in preserving the environment in which we live – such as taking up recycling, eliminating products that are harmful to the atmosphere, protecting wildlife, and things of that nature.

Long story short? Choose my home carefully based on the environment it’s in, pay attention to the signs the environment is offering, and protect the environment while I’m at it.

What’s the guidebook say?

Card Meaning: The Fairy kingdom is very concerned with the health of Mother Earth. By drawing this card, the fairies are recruiting you to become involved in environmental matters.

Definition: You have th epower to make a huge impact on our planet. Earth is a living, breathing being, and the fairies are calling upon you to help her. Your contributions could include recycling, picking up trash while on your nature walk, switching to environmentally friendly cleaning products, becoming a vegetarian, or educating your children about the fragility of nature.

When you spend time outdors, mentally ask the fairies for guidance on how to make your special contributions to Mother Earth’s well-being. The fairies will give you answers in the form of thoughts or feelings, by arranging a synchronistic opportunity, or by helping you use your unique talents to help educate others about environmental concerns.

Affirmation: It feels good to nurture my planet with loving care.

What if?

“What if”
Written by:
Wendi Friend
2000

What if…
the power most often referred to as “God”
were actually a pregnant woman
called “Mother Nature”,
Her womb called Earth,
the fetus – humanity

What if…
we have not yet become
what we were conceived to be –
and may,
through lack of regard for consequence,
abort ourselves
before such beauty
is ever given life?
