Elemental Expert Karen Kay shares how we can enjoy the gift of the here and now, just like the Fae
To experience mindfulness is to experience the now! When we bring ourselves to the present moment, all of our challenges, cares and concerns take a back seat. Why is this? It does not mean these things are any less important to us in a personal way. Yet, in the realm of the fae and the spirit realms, we realise that everything we need is right here, in this moment. So, our cares and concerns can melt away as we focus fully on the now. This sounds super simple, yet this is how the fairies play every day! We can certainly learn a thing or two from these magical timeless beings who dwell eternally in the ‘now’, for this is where the magic really and truly resides.
Come into the now
I’m often asked, how can I connect with or find fairies? Well, the answer is so simple it’s almost unbelievable! You’re more likely connect with fairies when you can be fully in the moment. This can be achieved in several ways, one of which is through meditation – the act of being still and focusing on the moment…
“You’re more likely to connect with fairies when you can be fully in the moment”
Now try something new
Fly with the fairies
1 Find a quiet space where you can meditate in peace and tranquillity. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position, close your eyes and take three deep breaths. With each breath you feel more relaxed and connected to the earth.
2 Imagine your feet sinking into the earth and feel the rich dark soil between your toes. Say, “Myself and the earth are one, I surrender now to fairy fun!”
3 Feel and enjoy the sensations of being connected to the earth, Mother Gaia. Fairies are the guardians of this planet and so they are the same.
4 Now consciously bring your mind to now! Say, “Three, two, one” if that helps. Each time your mind starts to float into the past or future, keep bringing it back to now.
5 If your mind begins to wander too much, visualise the thoughts turning into tiny clouds or birds and watch them float away.
6 Now see a flash of light, with several sparkles, like tiny fairies flying all around. The fairy lights start to form a word, that word is ‘now’. Then together they say, “The magic is in the moment! The magic is in this moment! Won’t you join us in the here and now, and enjoy the real magic that is all around?”
7 As you focus on the word ‘now’ and see the beautiful shining lights, you feel fully present and connected with your fairy friends. They are happy and giggling, as there is so much joy and freedom to be experienced in the moment. In this moment in time, all your concerns vanish, as if by magic!
8 Ask the divine to remind you of the gift of the present, the power and magic of now. Know that all is well in this moment and that this moment is eternal and available to all. It’s like a magical, yet oh so simple secret that the fairies wish you to know.
9 Sit for as long as feels right, focusing on the present, and practise bringing your mind back if it starts to wander.
10 Then, when you feel ready, imagine the soil between your toes again and start to become conscious of your fingers and body. Open your eyes when you feel ready. In your mind say thank you to the fairies.
Join the present fae anytime
Know you can visit this place of presence anytime you desire. Even if just for a few moments, you can even do this in a supermarket! Being in the now is just a thought away. It can almost feel like a cleansing spiritual shower, making you feel free, recharged and ready to face the needs of the world and your circumstances.
