I painted “Faerie Child” in honour of seeing the faeries, three dimensionally. I was not on psychedelics, nor was I one to believe they really existed, up until that point. I liked the idea but thought my ideas of them were simply fairytales. I have come to remember as a child I sometimes visited the faerie realm in times of trauma. As I grew, I forgot my child like Innocence in respect to their existence. Now, I always do my best to remind people there is much more than meets the eye in this dimension we call Earth. Magic truly does exist.
The Faeries delivered me to the edge of the sea,
With double wings and an opal glow
The dolphins came and awakened me,
Said, “Let us play dear child, and pray,
We play and pray everyday.”
Innocence is found in the song of the dolphins dance.
Innocence is faeries circumstance…
The Faerie Child is asking us to remember our innocence, throw away the ideas that there is no real magic in the world besides a magic trick and a slip of the hand. Chuck those thoughts in our head that “adults” told us about the ways of the world and how we should be, because that’s the way society believes. We only need to remember, we have not lost our innocence it is simply buried in conditioning imposed upon us. Drop all that we have learned from others and we will have returned to innocence. Be as simple minded as a child, finding the mind no longer tense, innocence resurfaces and we’ll remember to play.
Perchance the veils between the worlds were thin and doorways were temporarily opened the Faeries ascended into our world from another dimension, a place some call the underworld, deep within the Earth. Perhaps the faeries have answered the call of humanity or quite likely they have been with us all along.
In any case they bless us by bringing certain gifts to assist with humanities evolution and our Earth Mother. They are powerful intelligent Beings of Light, a combination of all elements, earth, fire, water, air and Spirit, and show themselves to us as beautiful winged creatures and particles of light. Maybe because we can perceive them this way with a sense of familiarity or maybe that is what they really look like. I don’t know for sure, but I do know they exist and they can be seen if they want you to see them.
What if we have agreements and are working together to achieve healing and wholeness? What if when we call upon them they are our allies, as long as we respect and honour their presence and this planet that we share together?
Set your intention and use your child-like essence and trust your feelings. Understand that your awareness may be heightened to that which you may easily sense and sometimes even see their presence. When this happens you may be shown some innate gift that is unique and with it will come a remembrance and a deep calling to contribute your gift to the healing of the planet. The perfect time to bring this gift forth is in our innocence found.
Laugh - See - Love - Feel – Play - Radiate – Express your creative gifts. Enjoy and appreciate the Beauty that is innately natural to you! This will assist to bring Innocence in your world and give you a more Sacred connection to the magic blessing of your existence. Remember Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
The medicine of the Faerie and the dolphin in the painting are urging you to forget those thoughts you have been taught that magic doesn’t really exist, play and allow yourself to return to innocence.
