Letter from the Editor
Last summer our lovely goth fairy, Ravanna,
teased us a bit by making her entrance into
The Fairy Line as a popular sparking
and room decal image. She hung out in the
shadows for many months, reluctant to reveal
her many mysteries until now, as we debut her
gorgeous and exotic wings and feature her
mission and unique Fairy Therapy.
As we explore Ravanna's deep and dark realms
this issue, I'd also like us all to
contemplate the effects of fearful thinking
on our life experience. The influence we
have on our children -- and others who look
to us for guidance -- is very much colored
by the degree that we allow ourselves to be
carried away by the negative messaging that
surrounds us every day in this fast-paced and
Consider this clever axiom from writer and
astrologer, Caroline Casey:
lays the tracks for the Reality Train to
Imagination that is given free reign to
entertain all sorts of negative scenarios,
but rarely takes a dip into the ocean of
unlimited possibilities, is one that is very
susceptible to fear.
Do you remember a few years back how we were
being primed for a deadly worldwide epidemic?
That bird flu kind of flew past us, didn't
it? All that needless fear and energy-draining
adrenalin rushes, for nothing - like Y2K,
another "non-event" a few years before.
There will ALWAYS be something that can capture
your imagination and fill you with fear,
but you don't need to buy into all of the
doom and gloom that is being broadcast!
Fairy Hint: Imagination that takes
frequent forays into the land of dreams and
wishes lays tracks that would transport us in
a far more hopeful destination. (And you
will make such a marvelous role model for
people who look up to you!)
Do come and visit our
Enchanted Fairy Forest , newly designed by
Fairy Ashley @ International Plaza! outside
of Mayor's Jewelry. This is Customer
Month so let us brighten your day
with fairy whimsy and joy
Until next month, Fairy Blessings!

||FAIRY RAVANNA, DIVA OF DARING AND DISCOVERY
Fairies are nature spirits and guides to help
us enrich our imagination; Ravanna is your
the guide to those unknown and unexplored
aspects of your subconscious beliefs and
She closely related to the "Shadow" archetype
of Jungian psychology. Archetypes are
universal symbols of the infinite variety of
human and superhuman experience. She teaches
us that when we give expression to darkness
and hidden desires in a healthy way, we are
less likely to be consumed by them.
This mischievous minx dares you to walk a bit
on the wild side, to take a step into the
unknown and take a risk. If truth be told,
some of those dares don't always turn out so
well, plunging us to the depths of despair.
Yet -- when we bounce back, haven't we
discovered something new about ourselves?
Don't we feel more empowered by having taken
that risk and lived to tell the tale?
Isolating a bit from the world, delving into
some dark times is not a bad thing, provided
we find our way back into the light.
Ravanna is also about balance between light
and dark; She is the mediator between the
visible, tangible world and the invisible
dimension of "faerie" where anything we
imagine can be brought into being, provided
we have the commitment to see it through.
Watch for new Ravanna-inspired
products to be introduced over the next
||RAVANNA'S RAVISHING WINGS!
Inspired by our sultry and mysterious Fairy
of Shadows, our talented Fairy Lindsey Adams
is proud to debut the first in her
custom-designed wings. These are jumbo
sized, measuring 30 inches long and width
(side to side) over 34 inches.
The colors of green and purple are gorgeously
blended with bright jewels and black tulle.
Violet and plum ribbons float down from the
yellow jeweled star in the center.
Those are authentic peacock feathers crowning
Our Goth Fairy wings are ideal for anyone
wanting to make a fashion statement! Fairy
Lindsey likes to wear them to the local goth
castle. The dancers love it when she
sprinkles them with our sparkling Fairy
FAIRY ALERT: We will be featuring
Luminara's Lovely wings and Fairy Bellafonte,
the Furry Fairy's puppy wings next month!
||FAIR-APY "EXPLORING A HIDDEN DESIRE
Ravanna is also the Diva of Desire (note her
sassy red pumps peeking out!) She invites
you to take a tiny step this month towards
fulfilling a hidden desire, kind of like
dipping your toes in the mysterious mote
surrounding Ravanna's House of Shadows.
Spend 15-20 minutes doing this exercise:
Think about something you have secretly
longed to explore in yourself; to write a
book; go back to school, do stand-up comedy;
learn salsa - think about what you would have
to do realistically to accomplish this, what
sacrifices you would have to make, and how it
would challenge you. Most importantly
contemplate how you would feel once you had
fulfilled this desire.
No need to go beyond this step for the time
being - just keep in mind that
"imagination lays the tracks for the
Reality Train to follow."
