The Fee Lion
Getting it right, Delayed completions, Tidying up loose ends
The Fee Lion looks out accusingly, reminding us of things undone, promises unkept and duties unfilled. He says that we cant expect to have things go right when we are trailing somuch unfinished business behind us. Dragging that stuff around tires us; it uses up energy we need for other things. If we could just take care of these things that take so much mental (and sometimes physical) clutter, we would suddenly find that we have a lot more energy at our disposal to do the things that we really want to do – and probably much more cooperation from others as well. He especially suggests that we take care of little things that matter to others. We will feel so much better than that and so will he
Trying to keep yourself little by denying your power so you won’t be a threat to anyone merely keeps you in a false bubble of safety. Of course, at least that way, you won’t get noticed much or stand out. Well, that trick has worn out its welcome. You’re more powerful that you think you are, so its time to stop pretending. Those psychic games you play – like finding a convenient parking space, or knowing when a certain someone is going to call – those are just parlour tricks, yet they’re subtle testimonies to the gifts you have.
There’s no need to take on airs about your incredible talents. Let them serve you, but mainly let them be of service to others – whether human, animal, plant or mineral. Use your abilities to demonstrate to others that there is this amazing power of Spirit available that can move mountains, a force to can be accessed with the proper mix of faith, intention and focus. So stop doubting, worrying or making excuses, and own your capacity to be a powerful magician. Use these gifts to help make this a better world for all beings.

What i it about living more richly and fully that frightens you?What would you really like to do but are frightened to begin?There will be testing times and setbacks.But the hero is the one who gets up and tries yet again.
I am Earth. I am mother, I am Grandmother. It is from me that all life comes forth. I am the Great Turtle. Ground yourself through me. Learn from me the protective instinct of care and nurturing, the formation, the formulation, gestation and development. Through me you can see the beauty and gentleness in all that exists. I am the foundation, the very beginning. It is within me that the Shaman journeys for knowledge and wisdom, the timeless flight of ecstasy. I am the Lower World, I am the fifth direction. I am ancestor. I am the root. I am female, the magnetic, the yin, the left side.
