Fairy Holiday Greetings!
Tis' the season for all of us to be busy,
busy, busy! I know that when I am in that
ultra-busy mode, the momentum keeps building
to the point that it's hard to put the brakes
on; By the time the festivities are here -
and I'm sure that I'm not alone in admitting
this -- it's tough to switch gears, unwind
and appreciate the year-end celebrations.
How have we gotten to the point of losing the
point of these holidays?
During this seasonal madness, even the most
laid-back of folks seem "driven." What
drives most of us all year long is an
internal chatterbox that badgers us
non-stop - telling us that we are not good
enough, or not accomplishing as much as we
should. When our activity accelerates, the
internal dialogue picks up the pace to a
The only effective way I have ever discovered
to counteract this relentless inner babble is
to take a few moments every day to STOP
myself in my tracks and do something good
for myself. In "Fairy Therapy aka
Fair-apy" we call this the reflective
pause. These deliberate acts of
life-affirming behavior (some ideas listed
below) could take from seconds to minutes to
perform, and while they might seem
inconsequential at first, over time you are
slowly but surely re-training that internal
chatterbox and putting it on notice that it
can't control your life.
So, my dear readers - take a break. You need
it. You deserve it.
May this be the fairy best holiday season for
you and yours!

6) Read the poem on the bottle out loud and
then mist some "Fairy Phoebe's Drama Queen
Diffusing Mist" overhead.
7) Drink a glass of water or other healthy
beverage slowly and consciously in
appreciation of its intrinsic value.
8) Sing along to a tune that really motivates
you and reflect on the words.

*A favorite inspirational book that I am
this season (as one of my daily reflective
Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and
Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach. While I was
still in California I had the privilege of
attending a monthly study group based on this
amazing book and moderated by my friend and
colleague, Dr. Marjorie Miles, an
expert on teaching you how to use your
sleep dreams to live your life's dreams.
We will be featuring an article by Marjorie
on dreams in an upcoming newsletter, but in
the meantime, be sure to peruse her very
informative website listed under Quick Links.

||FAIR-APY BAHARI'S BATH THERAPY
Essential oils are derived from flowers,
plants, herbs and seeds. They contain high
concentrations of the universal life force --
how much closer to the Fairy Realm can you
get than by reveling in Nature's gifts! Go
to a health food store and invest in a small
bottle of pure lavender oil - it has infinite
therapeutic uses! We also have essential
blends for our different fairies. (see my
article on aromatherapy on the link below for
more information on how they work.)
If you want to get started on this
incredible reflective pause you can
even use a small amount of your favorite face
or body cream or body spray on the washcloth.
My favorite recipe for bliss: Take a clean
washcloth into your shower or bath. When
almost finished, wet the washcloth with water
as hot as you can tolerate, fold in two and
put a few 2-4 drops of the oil onto the
cloth. Place over your face, up to the
nostrils and deeply breathe in the aroma.
Not only are you receiving pure
aromatherapy, your skin will also
benefit from the steam and the absorption of
the beneficial oils. In those few moments
transport yourself to your favorite outdoor
place in your imagination.
