|Magical Messages from the Fairies|
For a little breathing space I drew this card from the Magical Messages from the Fairies by Doreen Virtue. But it turned out to be a card with a rather striking message: Express Your Individuality – Allow your true self to shine because you’re awesome! This fairy is an elderly lady with a purple dress, striped stockings and red hat. She is totally at ease and comfortable with who she is. She is proud of herself. Not for what she has accomplished or for what people think of her but purely for who she is: Herself.
Being your true self and not being afraid to show your enormous potential, talents and power is another life long journey for many of us. Most of us are raised not to stand out in a crowd. Not to be different than everybody else. This has taken root during our puberty and later on in life some of us have made some progress to detach from this peer pressure. But who can truly say they are comfortable to stand out and feel safe to shine and be great. When I come across these kind of people I envy them…
The guidebook says:
“You drew this card because you worry about social acceptance. The Fairies want to celebrate your uniqueness, since to them you’re delightful and perfect just as you are right now. The Fairies love your creativity, and they urge you to just be yourself. Don’t squelch your true self in order to gain others’ approval. Pretending doesn't work anyway, and you can’t please everyone. Instead, enjoy being authentic and trust that like-minded people will be attracted to you."
Perhaps it all starts out with fully accepting and loving who we are, so we will be completely comfortable with our own perfect individuality. Don’t hide your own light. The next step can be showing our real radiant selves to others
Have fun in exploring you awesome self!
