February's Message

By Terri C.

As I write this months article, I glance out the window at what we here affectionately call “Seattle Mist.”  Yes, it’s one of those gloomy, dreary, misty days here in the Pacific Northwest.  I am not complaining, as I have been watching the national weather and we have had a very mild winter thus far, comparatively.  I also know that it is days, like today, that keep our state lush and green.

February brings us into the month of LOVE!  It’s all about romance and relationships.  The Fae want to remind you to love yourself, too!  You will not find the happiness that you seek in any relationship, if you don’t love yourself, first.  Give yourself a hug today and pat yourself on the back.  Remind yourself, how special you really are! 

This month also is an excellent time to spread those wings!  What project have you been working on, even if only in the mind?  It’s time to put the creative energy behind it and move it forward.  It might be a good idea to share your idea or project with someone that you trust.  Brainstorm together, figure out how to improve it and move it forward.  Then get moving.

You may find yourself facing an intellectual challenge of some sort this month.  Someone may attack your ideals and ethics.  The first thing to remember here is to breathe.  Your ethics and beliefs are just that YOURS!  Listen to that inner voice, the one that helps you determine what is right and what is wrong.  Let that voice guide you to what is right for YOU.  Do not let others’ push you into conforming to their belief system.  You have to do what is right for YOU.  It is okay to listen to their thoughts, but you do not have to change your opinion, you may need to agree to disagree and leave it at that.

You should find yourself flooded with ideas this month.  Ideas for work, the family, the house, creative ideas.  You might even feel like your brain is on over-load.  If you find yourself in that position, start writing things down, even if just to get them out of your head.  You do not have to act on every one of these ideas, pick a couple and give them a try.  If you have trouble narrowing things down to what is doable, ask someone to go over the list with you.  Be sure that this person is someone you trust fully.  The last thing you would want is someone running off with one of your brilliant ideas!  Ask yourself, “What is the probable outcome if I do this?”  Also, ask yourself, “What will I gain/lose by putting this into action?”

Towards the end of the month, you may feel like you need a cloak of invisibility, that you want to blend in with the crowd and not have anyone notice you.  If you feel that way, honor it.  Give yourself that much needed time away from people.  Blend in with the crowd, you don’t need to put yourself in the center of attention.  

During the month of February, we see a lot of red, pink and white.  You might feel better wearing more blues and greens this month.  These colors have a calming, nurturing effect.  

Wearing a blue lace agate, carries a soft healing energy, that can open the third chakra and promote clear communication.  It is a stable, grounding stone that brings about physical, emotional, spiritual and mental balance.  This stone is a true holistic healer.

As always, I hope you find that this message from the Fae helps guide you through the ups and downs of this month!  Remember to say a special little thank you to our Fae Friends for the guidance, insight and entertainment!

See you again, next month and keep the faith!
