Mermaid and Patina Moon

Mermaid and Patina Moon
In the past she would swim to the surface to sit along the water's edge and watch the humans. She used to find them quite magical. Most mermaids thought so. But over time she lost her intrigue. She began seeing their shadow sides, and how their fears evolved into hate. She couldn't stand to watch them being so mean to one another anymore and decided to remain in the safe and loving waters of the cove. 
As the years passed she began to change. Merfolk don't age like humans, with wrinkles and such. Merfolk begin to patina when they age, a colorful sheen cloaks them, most especially their tail. As she began to patina, she became hidden in the waters even more. She blended into her surroundings with precision. This made the Moon ever so sad because he loved Fin the most. 
It seemed that every night it would take longer and longer to find her. Finally one cold night in November he called to Fin and presented her with a gift wrapped in stars. Inside she f…

Spring Equinox, Full Super Moon, and a Goddess Wand

The Spring Equinox is approaching (Wednesday March 20th), and will be coupled with March's Full Super Moon that same evening. Mercury will also be going direct the following week. For those who are in sync with the moon and these energies, some of the shifts can already be felt. The spiritual meaning of the events promises to be not only a beautiful healing time, but also a very productive time.
This particular Full Moon speaks to letting go of things that no longer serve us, while the Spring Equinox speaks to Renewal, Rebirth, and New Beginnings. Beautifully, it's much like the gardener weeding and tilling his garden space before planting the new season's seeds. I decided that I wanted to create a prayer altar that would reflect that symbolism so that I could set intentions and gratitude  on that day.
I contemplated for a few days on the things in my life that no longer served me, the areas that seemed stuck, and the things that weren't growing. I thought about things …

Using Art Nouveau Color Palettes on my Mandala Paintings

This weekend I created a new Mandala Painting with a Butterfly as its focal point, and wanted it to exude and earthy yet feminine allure. I decided the best way to achieve that was to use an Art Nouveau color palette. The one I chose had a combination of Antique White, Pale Yellow. Soft Salmon, Teal, Payne's Grey, and White along with a Honey Brown as a background.

The finished piece came out exactly how I was hoping. Not only will it compliment almost any home decor, but it DOES bring an Earthy yet Feminine feel to it.

Finding Happiness...somewhere in the Grey area

The Quest for Happiness....aren't we ALL on that adventure? We all seek it, but it looks different to each of us. Sometimes we've had it all along and never realized it.....until it slipped away. Sometimes we have it, we are completely holding it in our hands, but mistakenly think that happiness is something else....like an "aha moment" with a big fat label on it, and so we overlook it without a second glance.
Parameters on Happiness Sometimes people put numerous parameters on it, like a series of events need to happen before it is attained. Sometimes it is a collection of material things. Sometimes people think that it lies within another person, and that doesn't usually work out well. And sometimes people think that if they follow the "rulebook"....DO the things it says...ATTAIN the things it says....and climb the ladder like everyone else....THEN you will have it.  Finding your own Recipe for Happiness The thing is, someone else's rule book doesn…

Coffee Break - The Importance of Fairy Fika

In the beginning, the very first Fairy Queen had put a lot of thought and love into creating the rules of the Land. She traveled the world, visiting other cultures and seeing what worked and what didn't...what she liked and what she didn't. Her ultimate goal was to create a home for her Fairy kin that would be supportive, nourishing, and sustaining. She wanted to be sure that there was every opportunity for Happiness possible.
While visiting in Sweden, she fell in love with their practice of Fika. Fika is a moment to gather, to converse, over coffee and a sweet bread. While the coffee and treat was superb on its own, it was much more than a coffee break,  the emphasis was on taking the time with someone else. Many of the businesses make Fika mandatory at different times in the day, and it has proven to be a great benefit for the people.

So the Fairy Queen decided that they would design their Land and create many many gathering places, for small groups and large groups, through…
