First Monday Of The Month Challenge – Believing In Fairy Tales

Is it really April? Theses first Monday of the month challenge days seem to come along thick and fast and I’m wondering where the year is disappearing to?

Following on from the weekend’s oracle, I wanted to broach the subject of make believe and come at it from a slightly less pragmatic angle. No sooner had I posted the oracle on Saturday about distinguishing fact from fantasy and getting yourself firmly grounded in the real world, getting yourself out of denial if you like, than the universe began encouraging me to do exactly the opposite!

I was reminded of a long lost dream I had as a teenager and invited to dream the dream anew in a more updated and creative way, bringing my imagination into the real world to see if I’d like to transform the fantasy into a reality now, or if I’d like to put it back in the box among the other lost or wasted wishes… The same evening I was transported into the world of a Disney princess as I, (popcorn in hand), was subjected to a friend singing the entire soundtrack through Beauty and the Beast at the cinema… and the two of us completely accepting the normality of a talking teapot and chipped cup (because obviously that happens every day)!

All this got me thinking about the magic of believing in fairy tales, and how Principle 7 of The Wholly Grail asks that we stay open-hearted… having experienced this transformation on April Fool’s Day only added to the magic when you begin to understand that the story of the fool in tarot, is the story of innocence, an open heart and a belief in magic.

So my challenge for you today is this: as you keep one foot in the real world, doing the things that you must, taking care of business and honouring your mundane responsibilities, I challenge you to see through to the unseen world and find your own magic. A dream today might become tomorrow’s reality with a little planning, hard work and a sprinkling of fairy dust… just don’t lose sight of which world you’re in!

Right I’m off to dispense some daughterly duties doing household chores for mum, (and I have just enough imagination and belief in fairy tales left to conjure a few of Snow White’s bluebirds to help me along).

Monday Miracle – A Dream In The Making

I want you to know that you are not alone.

The last week or so has for many been a turbulent one. The universe has thrown everything it can your way to awaken you to the possibilities of a new way of being, but you cannot bring the old you along on the next part of the adventure. Let her (or him) die a metaphorical death so that you may be born anew.

It’s an anxious time, birth, but that’s what you are going through… maybe you’re bringing something forth in the external world like a new project, career, relationship or even an actual baby, but essentially the hidden miracle is that you are the very thing that you are giving birth to. Whatever is being created is creating a new version of you. Make no mistake that you will be changed forever.

There are cords, threads, hooks and chains all keeping you shackled to that old familiar version of yourself… some look like friends, family, old loves, habits both good and bad, fully invested in the previous incarnation that is attempting to return to stardust, reforming into a lighter, brighter more natural replacement. They won’t let go of what they know easily, she (he) could be depended upon to act a certain way, follow a certain pattern, be cajoled or controlled into what they needed regardless of how you felt or what you needed from her (him). I know you’re afraid. You too have come to have certain expectations of how life should be, what you are worth and whether this is your lot. You know this place. It’s safe. But it’s also stifling, restricted and painful…. let her die.

You are not alone.

The end of a karmic cycle is upon you and as unmapped as the onward path may be, you will be walking it with other intrepid souls who won’t let you fall.

This Monday Miracle is a dream in the making… feel out those old attachments, threads and chains and decide which ones bring joy, which bring sorrow, sadness and fear, choose to feed the joyful connections as you are reborn into the light and as you turn from the darkness all else will simply fade away.

This is the true you, your authentic self… and she (he) is magnificent.
