Queen of the Fairy Kingdom

I consider Dana (dawn-ya) the Queen of the Fairy Kingdom! She is the Irish queen who created the leprechauns. Like the leprechauns (normal-sized Irishmen made small), she is only 3 feet tall. But she is very powerful! Ask to connect with her during your next meditation 🙂

In other Irish news: Sinn Fein, the political party that wants a united Ireland, won almost half the seats in Parliament! This is a huge victory for them. I personally think we will see a united Ireland in our lifetime ❤

I feel that after Queen Elizabeth dies (she’s been having health issues), a new, more modern time will begin, especially once Prince William takes the throne. Even though they don’t have political power, the royal family is an important symbol of the glory days of the British Empire. Prince William wants to bring the British royal family – kicking and screaming – into modern times, while his dad Prince Charles likely doesn’t. I just saw in a documentary that Prince Charles still has servants ironing his shoelaces for him 😉 Psychics predict the Queen will die soon, Prince Charles will be king for about 5 years, and then Prince William will take over. As a huge Princess Diana fan, I’m excited to see her son(s) take over!

Here is my latest cartoon graphic! I always think it’ll take 30 minutes to do a new graphic, and then it takes all morning! Search my blog for info on St. Brighid (I wrote a post about her last year).

Leprechaun Colors

leprechaun_colors

Once again, I’m using the Secret Language of Color Cards by Inna Segal. Love these! I pulled these cards to be leprechaun colors. Let’s see what the cards say.

Emerald card = “Calm your mind, body and soul.” Of course, emerald green is the color most associated with lucky leprechauns! Ireland, where they live, is even called The Emerald Isle (it gets lots of rain so is often full of greenery). The meaning of this color, according to the booklet, is abundance and the nature kingdom. Also, having a healthy, loving heart that is free from stress. Go into the forest and relax!

Gold card = “Attract abundance.” I chose the gold card to represent the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! The card booklet says imagine a gold coin in each of your hands. First, be thankful for what you have now. Then, imagine the gold coins multiplying into a huge pile of coins, growing bigger and bigger. Imagine it up to your ceiling, and spilling out of your front door. This is a good exercise for attracting abundance.

Brown card = “Establish boundaries.”  The brown card is about Mother Earth. The booklet says play with some dirt, like find a stick and draw in it. Or you could do some gardening. Or make mud pies with a kid. The meaning of the color brown is to create healthy boundaries in relationships, so think about that. Always a trouble spot for me!

Jade card = “Take action.” This color is about taking action, but in a calm and easy manner. It’s very meditative and zen (in the Far East, jade stones are very common). Imagine what is you want, and then surround it in a bubble of jade green light. Vow to works toward getting it, but in a straightforward and simple way (without stressing out!).

 

Day 1 of Lucky Leprechauns!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I am introducing you to a different leprechaun for 7 days in a row 🙂 Each leprechaun tells us an abundance tip! If you don’t know, leprechauns are magical “little people” who live in Ireland (they live on a higher realm so are difficult to see). They are famous for their green felt outfits, leggings and a belted jacket with a matching green cap. They always know how to find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. They also know how to party!

Meet Liam.

Liam (pronounced Lee-im) is a stocky little fellow. He has dark red hair under his green cap, and a dark red beard to match. He smokes a pipe. He dances a feisty Irish jig and likes his brandy.

Write down your goals.

Leprechaun Meditation for Abundance

LEPRECHAUN MEDITATION for ABUNDANCE

I love St. Patrick! Say this meditation on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) to give it more power. Both St. Patrick and the leprechauns represent the beautiful spirituality of Ireland. Leprechauns are amazing at bringing in abundance.

See emerald green sparkles in front of you. Now imagine an emerald green ray of light beaming out from your heart chakra (“shock-rah,” near your heart but in the middle of  your chest). This emerald green ray transmits the energy of love. Ask St. Patrick to visit you. See him standing before you, bathed in this emerald green ray of love. He is dressed like a Catholic priest, with gold and green Celtic symbols embroidered on his outfit. Say, “Dear St. Patrick, I have called you in to bless me with an abundance of love and riches.” See a green Celtic heart (with knotwork in the middle) float toward you from his outstretched hand. Know that St. Patrick is blessing you with love.

To help bless you with riches, St. Patrick calls in his friends the leprechauns. Everyone knows the leprechauns are lucky! See three leprechauns standing in front of you. They look a bit like the dwarves from “Snow White” but they wear forest green clothes: felt leggings, a matching top edged in a ruffle and a pointy green cap. Each leprechaun steps forward and hands you a lucky shamrock. As soon as you take the lucky shamrocks, the leprechauns start singing and dancing. They dance away from you, saying, “We’re off to find the pot of gold!” Wave goodbye to them. They’ll reappear once they’ve found gold for you.

Manifesting abundance is all about shortening the time between cause and effect. Your positive thinking is the cause and the effect is realizing your dreams. Visualize what you want. Create a vision board with positive affirmations, Bible quotes, pictures ripped out of magazines and inspiring post cards. Do meditations and even hypnosis. See in your mind what you want to achieve. The more passionate you are, the quicker you will attract what you want. Know that the world has infinite resources and God wants you to achieve your dreams.

Now, see a thick mist of gold sparkles. The sparkles form a golden path. Walking towards you on this path are the leprechauns. Watch as they set down a heavy black pot overflowing with gold coins. Ask them, “Where, oh where, did you find this pot of gold?” They’ll reply, “Why, at the end of a rainbow, of course!” Admire the gold coins. Pick one up and inspect it. Is it shiny? Is it heavy? Is it inscribed with writing or embossed with a symbol? The more real the gold coins are to you, the better. Say good bye and thank you to the leprechauns. Know that the luck of the Irish is with you!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I love St. Patrick’s Day! Growing up Catholic in Wisconsin, there were many Irish people keeping St. Patrick’s Day traditions alive. In fact, one small farming town nearby, New London, is famous for its small parade which includes the local fire trucks, the high school marching band and not much else. LOL. It’s odd that St. Patrick’s Day is such a big holiday when he isn’t a super popular saint the rest of the year…. I looked up some info on St. Patrick:

  • he lived in Medieval times, around 400
  • he was not actually Irish! he was from England, and got sold into slavery, becoming a sheepherder in the Irish countryside
  • he always heard and listened to his spiritual guides – the angels and God – he heard a voice telling him to walk to the sea where he would find a ship and be able to get a free ride back to England which he did, and he returned to Ireland after he dreamed of his Irish friend telling him to come back
  • he had to learn Latin in order to become a Catholic priest, which was hard for him as he hadn’t had much schooling
  • he lived at the same time as St. Brighid (see my blog post about her) and is buried with her in the town of Downpatrick, County Down, in Northern Ireland – this is disputed by some but it’s believed a few relics of each (part of the body but not the whole body = ewww!) plus St. Columba are buried here
  • the imagery of him defeating the snake and driving them out of Ireland is likely a metaphor for the pagan religions (like the Celts practiced) which dwindled after he made Catholicism so popular in Ireland (sorry, pagans!)
  • it’s said his symbol is the 3-leafed clover because he used it to explain the Trinity (God the father, Jesus the son and the Holy Ghost) to new Catholics, however this is also an ancient Celtic symbol

draw Celtic knot shamrock

One of my favorite angel ladies, the Irish Lorna Byrne, says she sees St. Patrick with many Celtic (pronounced “keltic” with a hard “k”) symbols around him, like the shamrock and the famous Celtic knotwork. She thinks he has become a symbol for of all Ireland, including the ancient Celtic beliefs (pagan). She also says the Irish are a very special people, very pure in spirit. She says you will find Irish communities all over the world because God tasked them with bringing their beautiful spirituality to all corners of the globe. How sweet!

Saint Brighid, the Celtic Fire Goddess

Brighid (bridge-id), also spelled Brigid or Brigit, is both a Celtic fire goddess and a Catholic saint. First, she was a Celtic fire goddess in Ireland. Her pagan holiday is Imbolc (i-molk), February 1st, which celebrates the beginning of spring and the birth of new livestock. In the 5th century, Catholics adopted her story and transferred parts of her legend onto a nun who ran an abbey in Kildare, Ireland. They kept her feast day of February 1st. And they kept her association with the pagan element of fire by having the nuns look after an eternal flame in her honor.

Brighid or Brigid the Celtic goddess

The pagan Brighid has sexy, flaming red hair and is a powerful woman who protects people and is a symbol of fertility. She is also associated with healing (magickal wells are another symbol for her). The Irish people still handweave St. Brighid’s crosses from green reeds/rushes. They are hung over doorways for protection. In the town of Kildare, in central-eastern Ireland, you can visit her original church and abbey called the Church of the Oak (the oak tree being a pagan symbol) and a cathedral built in her honor in 1223.

Saint Brighid prayer card

Her Catholic prayer cards show a more subdued woman, wearing the black outfit of a nun and holding a long staff in her hand which marks her status as an abbess, or headmaster of an abbey where nuns and priests live. She is also shown with white roses and white lilies, the color white being a special color for her.
