Over at my Healing Fairy Alphabet page, I am participating in the Mad Tea Party given each year by A Fanciful Twist. Her blogs are gorgeous and feasts for the eyes. You can see my new FAIRY movie over here. (Free worksheet too, and I added two new creative classes over there.)
Thank you for taking the New Class Poll! We have a winner! (For those of you sighing because you wanted an Advanced Animal Communication class, don’t worry. We’ve got a monthly teleclass scheduled in November on that subject!)
New Fairy Class! Let me take you on an adventure.
I invite you to enter deeper into the fairy world. Maybe you took the Fairy Beginner Fairy Healing class, or dipped your feet into Fairies 101 for a look, or maybe you just love fairies and they’ve been sparkling in and out of your life. The Fairy Tools class (part of the Fall Session) we’ll dive into new healing tools you can use and apply in daily, practical life, while having fun exploring different parts of the Fairy Realm.
We visit the Cacti People for targeted help, dive down deep with the Water Spirits, enter Indian Gardens to clear out holes, go to the fields of manifesting magic, head to the Pond of Mirrors, and visit the Flower Garden to heal with color. Sign up in the next two minutes (just kidding), but seriously, if you sign up this week, each student receives a FREE guided fairy meditation to play with later! Go here.
It’s my R is for Roses from the Healing Fairy Alphabet.
I love roses! When I moved here to my fairy castle I was pleasantly surprised to find several rose bushes in my yard. At the time, I really needed healing on all levels and just being by the Roses I am convinced has helped me. Roses lift us up from whatever pain, bad mood, or circumstance we are facing and give us a higher perspective so we can think again and see things clearly. Can you pick up some roses today to help you heal?

My friend Janet Roper has a fabulous radio show you will all love all about animal communication! Last night I had the privilege to be one of the guests on her show talking about THE CONNECTION BETWEEN FAIRIES AND ANIMALS, my two favorite subjects! The show was excellent which included a holistic health tip and a great interview with Nedda Wittels regarding lost animal cases. To hear all of it and hear me giggle while I talk of fairies go here. (My interview is during the second half of the show.)
Interesting aside, after participating in the radio show, I had fabulous dreams about flower gardens and light until waking up at midnight to a loud BANG coming from the reading room. When I went to check on it I noticed my fairy poster had fallen off the wall onto the ground. Interesting, eh?
What’s a non-negotiable? I’ve been learning from my backyard. When I rented my Fairy Castle, it was the yard that I fell in love with. I dig roses and there’s quite a few, including the kind that smell really good. This backyard is like a little park I can sit in with my Emma Lou and swing back and forth as we admire the beauty.
When I water the plants, I watch their little leaves reach upwards in a smile. When I forget, in the inhospitable Arizona heat, I will find leaden leaves and a definite frown. It’s simple, but I am those plants. When I nurture and feed me, I pump up with color. I’m a shiny, happy thing. When I forget to water me, well…
But here’s the thing. I’ve taken in through my adult life some seriously faulty beliefs–that messed-up perception I talked about in my last post. It’s taken awhile and lots of work, but I am seeing those beliefs that include:
only when I make enough money will I deserve to have some rest
only when I give what others want will I have support
only when I work 80 hours a week and show I’m responsible will I get a pat on the head and what I need
Yuck!!! I am seeing that none of these beliefs work for me. I am sure you have some ONLYs in your brain swirling around. These need to be pulled! And in their place, I plant my non-negotiables.
In order to thrive as a Ronni plant, I need those non-negotiables. Having this yard and visiting Indian Gardens frequently I realize with certainty I MUST have constant interaction with Nature. It’s not lazy or irresponsible to take time out in Nature. On the contrary, I find it’s productive: I’m balanced and less emotional or reactive to other people’s stuff when I have time in the yard or the forest. It also feeds my creativity and my curiosity, which becomes many classes and books.
And in my usual, creative, visual fashion, I’ve been creating a chart to keep track of my non-negotiables (each drawn into a circle) as they come along. (To see it, Go Subscribe to My Newsletter.)
If I follow this line of thought, I also look at what waters me and what doesn’t. Translated, this means, what supports me and what doesn’t? Where do I feel SEEN, HEARD, SUPPORTED and APPRECIATED? Where do I feel ignored and forgotten, unimportant, or even poisoned? Let’s not focus on those weeds, just pull em’ out!
What are your non-negotiables and where do you feel watered?
