INTRODUCTION

The naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration, imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us all one to another.

We are but reflections of one another, until we are reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts from our purest essence. And we will then each be one to another the most persistent of reminders of the greatness that lies within each of us. For it is then that we are projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift or the cover on the book.

And so with this, we have the naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe:

The Faerie Clan

ENERGIES
Nature Spirits - Earth Connection - Imagination & Channeling

FAERIE POWER
"Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.  (W. B. Yeats)

The power of faeries lie cloaked amongst the obvious natural and elemental forces that are part of our every day world. Yet, the person who connects to these mysteries experiences nature on deeper levels than most of the rest of the world. For you a tree is not just a tree, a dragonfly is not just a dragonfly and a flower is not just a flower, but are part and parcel of a realm of mystical beings who embody the magic and beauty of nature.

Do you dare to enter the wondrous Realm of Faerie? Do you dare not? There are many mysterious and fascinating paths to follow in this enchanting realm.

The person carrying Fae energy is wild at heart and connected to the powerful elemental forces that are our creator tools. Faeries are often associated with capriciousness and some even caution to never anger them as they can be quite vengeful if provoked. Not surprising this is not unlike the very forces of nature. Mother nature often seems as if her will just overwhelms us tossing us here and about. Yet, those who truly know the Fae, know that the earth's rain is cleansing tears, her storms are bouts of mourning, earthquakes her labor pains, and rainbows are her winks and smiles.


FAERIE’S MESSAGE

Faerie energy empowers you to remember who you are at the elemental level and allows you to see exactly what that means. For though the elements can be tasted and tested, there are etheric components to them which can only be accessed through the Fae realms. This realm reminds you that magic is in full effect right before your eye all the time, in plain view, but hidden to those who are restricted to the denser levels of conscious awareness.

Connecting to the Earth, being enveloped and mesmerized by nature brings you to the realm of Fae. Enjoying the beauty of this mother earth is key to understanding, not only her loveliness, but also recognizing that every single stick, twig, blade of grass, butterfly and tree is here for our edification, sustenance, empowerment and healing. In her vast botanical realms alone is a veritable limitless storehouse of remedies for anything we can imagine. From cures for cancer and AIDS, to vitamins and minerals, to other worldly doorways into new worlds.


FAERIE SAYS…
I can help you connect to the earth in a new way if you will allow yourself to see me and take me into your heart. In order to do this you must become as a child and drop your fear that everything is just your imagination. I will give you all the validation that you need to come to trust your experiences.

You can begin by connecting through the physical properties of nature by using botanicals. Use essential oils, flower essences, crystals and herbology. Begin taking herbs through drinking green and other teas and whole foods. You become what you ingest and there is no more powerful way to connect to this realm than to take it directly into your body. As you eat the bountiful, wholesome foods of the earth you become her. For this is not a realm of the mind only. That is why the Fae realm is so powerful, it is not "other" worldly, it is right here with you in plain view. It is so obvious that it is hidden.

Leave tiny saucers of cream out to let me know that you want me to work with you. Bless every bit of food and drink that you put into your body. Bless the earth that you walk on. Appreciate and marvel at the beauty of our mother and she will smile on you with bountiful abundance. Like a suckling child at a mother's breast helps mother produce more milk with each feeding the more of earth's bounty we receive, the more she produces.

Follow my magical trails, into your active imagination and the land of visions and dreams. I am a muse for your creative genius and your ideas will glow and grow in delightful ways. There is no lack, there is only abundance. I will draw back the veil and let you see the treasure room for yourself! Follow me into the nature trails, to the beach, sit under a tree in your backyard, but get out into nature and I will be your guide.

FAERIE TOTEMS
Faeires love anything sparkly. So wearing body glitter, gems and jewels will please them no end. No need to over do it.  Faeries also love acorns, leaves, fern, ivy, twigs, dragonflies, butterflies, berries and cream. A thimble is the perfect container for gifts for your faeries. Greenman is a masculine counterpart of the Fae Realm. Goddesses to connect with are Danu, Artemis/Diana, Aine, Cordelia, and Morgan LeFaye.

FAERIE LEGENDS

The oldest origin of the fairy was directly connected to the earth and the elements, back to the fifteenth-century alchemists and mystics. People in the Middle Ages believed that fairies were sacred guardians of nature and all the natural elements. The works of Paracelsus in the fifteenth century spoke of these beings and described them as "the sylphs of air, the salamanders of fire, the undines or nymphs of water, and the gnomes of the earth" (Silver 35). Paracelsus also said that these creatures could only live in the element into which they were born. To him, these creatures lived and acted just as humans but were without immortal souls. They could move at super-human speeds, had the ability to materialize and dematerialize when needed, and possessed the magical ability to influence the human world (Silver 35-39). The culture of the time held that "elemental fairies shaped our temperaments: ‘the spirits of nature have their dwellings within us as well as outside of us’" (Silver 39).

"The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow sharp as swords. In that realm a man may, perhaps, count himself fortunate to have wandered, but its very richness and strangeness tie the tongue of the traveller who would report them. And while he is there it is dangerous for him to ask too many questions, lest the gate should be shut and the keys be lost."
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, "On Fairy-Stories," in The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays

"The fairy tale journey may look like an outward trek across plains and mountains, through castles and forests, but the actual movement is inward, into the lands of the soul. The dark path of the fairy tale forest lies in the shadows of our imagination, the depths of our unconscious. To travel to the wood, to face its dangers, is to emerged transformed by this experience. Particularly for children whose world does not resemble the simplified world of television sit-coms ... this ability to travel inward, to face fear and transform it, is a skill they will use all their lives. We do children--and ourselves--a grave disservice by censoring the old tales, glossing over the darker passages and ambiguities..."

-- Terri Windling, "White as Snow: Fairy Tales and Fantasy," in Snow White, Blood Red
