It’s super fun how some days my messages in front of the card altar are so fabulously clear.  This afternoon, as I stood there, my hand went an entirely different direction than where it had begun.  Your radio?  Extremely tuned-in.

             Much like yesterday, we’re being told that this is a time to be extra cautious and extra caring.  Over at Sarah’s place, the planets are saying something VERY similar.

             (In Real Life, the color scheme of today’s illustration is lots more brown than red, not sure why today’s view is so harsh and inaccurate.)

“Quiet Time  ~

You need some time alone, away from other people and environmental noises.  Even a brief respite would be extremely rejuvenating for you.

Sometimes we are not even cognizant of the detrimental impact of stress in our life.  We become so accustomed to living in an uproar that we’re not aware when our body is telling us that it’s on overload.  The symptoms include illness, unusual fatigue, depression or anxiety,  appetite and weight issues, addictions,  sleep disorders, irritability, and a desire to withdraw from life.

By drawing this card, you are being asked to honor your body and soul by spending some quiet time alone – as soon as possible.  This might mean going on a silent retreat; spending a day at the lake, beach, or in the mountains; taking a hike; or visiting a day spa.  You could even turn off your phone, put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on your door; and take an afternoon nap, a long bubble bath, or read your favorite book.  

Regardless of the form that your quiet time takes, the fairies just ask that you keep this promise to yourself without delay.


I now give myself permission to be silent within and without   My mind is quiet, and I enjoy my own company.”

             I’d like to add that this is NOT an impossibility, even if someone’s first reaction is, “oh yeah, I WISH this was something I could do.”  You CAN.  We do it simply by SAYING we’re doing it.  We all have the power to make this real.

             My (often repeated here) suggestion of a quick Quiet Time, by setting aside as few as three minutes someplace in our day, is pretty much what this message is all about.  Longer and farther from home, is obviously BETTER.  But we need to take what we can get.  (Even if it’s a second and a half in our car or in a bathroom.)

             Seriously, grab it.  Announce it.  We all NEED to do this!

Healing With The Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

FLP Report:

is mostly just a mention of how irritating those illegal plate frames are.  We saw a new (to us) Nevada car at the pool tonight.  Well, when I say we “saw” it, I mean, we had to walk right up and practically look under the stupid U of O emblazoned border that was screwed down over the license plate.

             (Last Minute Aside, it was a GREAT pool day/class.  Good turn-out, not much sharing of water [NO splashy children in sight], my music was playing, and I got to see friends.  [Martha!]  Tremendously uplifting from start to finish.)

LateNight Almost Forgot:

hope everyone had a beautiful and recycled, second-hand Earth Day!

  1. The card is lovely (more so when I color-correct in my head). My Cypress was calling today, with the sun shining upon it… but I ignored in because I was working on Hardanger while enjoying the sun, and I wanted to finish my pattern while in the sun. So obviously I must sit under Cypress tomorrow.

    Stitching progress picture PLEASE?!

  2. I have a spot on my deck that calls me. Another of my escape places is out to the farms north on River Rd. when they have the petunias in their greenhouse. Almost tropical, and it smells wonderful. And all that growing stuff.

    Oh the River Road farms are a GREAT idea! We need to go there, like soon.

    (From yesterday’s [additional] comment, did you spot the Vermont plate at the intersection where there USED to be as stop sign?)

  3. No alone time for me today. I’m playing nurse. My mother is getting the last of her teeth yanked. Hmmmm, maybe tonight if the scouts are still meeting. Spider Bait’s doing another 300+ mile bike trip again this summer. His last big scout event. (Which I find humorous since he swore after the last one ‘Never Again’.) It’s way too early…Yawn.

    I must disagree. Even if you ARE tending to a loved ones needs, at some point, during some hour, somewhere in that day, there WILL be three minutes that you COULD step aside, clear your mind, take a series of cleansing deep breaths, healing and infusing YOU with that recharge from the Universe.

  4. This is interesting. Last night I booked a massage. Have to wait until tomorrow for my quiet time, but I’m so looking forward to the treat. I’ve spent way too much time in the office chair lately. Today I’ll work out at Curves and walk the treadmill. It’s too windy to walk around the lake and I need to protect my sinuses before my next trip. ; )

    Your timing is still fine,
    see tonight’s post. 😀

  5. I’m feeling overwhelmed and much of those things listed in the card description, so perhaps I’m finally feeling the effects of everything, that the move is finally feeling real, and I’m a bit overwhelmed by the reality. And the fact that I now live with two people after many years of living alone. Time alone in a good way would be nice. I’ll have to arrange that.

    Do arrange it,
    make it happen!

    (J3 lives with someone, too. And she can’t always go outside. But this doesn’t mean that she can’t have some Quiet Time with her own personal Nature. [See comment thread on previous post.] You can figure something out similarly. Or ya know, walk down the block and back.)
