My bookworms! I'm so so so sorry I haven't been posting regularly! I'm having a hard time right now with test and homework before Christmas break but I'll try and be here more I promise. Now let's talk about The Cruel Prince! I love this book so much! @blackholly did an amazing job with this one and I cant wait for The Wicked King next month! I bought the Wicked King crate from @faecrate so I cant wait for that. I'm in love with Jude. She is so amazing and I love how she stands up for herself. She realized how she needed to change to be stronger and better for herself so she did that and kicked a**! ~
#qotd : who is your favorite character from The Cruel Prince?
#aotd : Either Jude, Cardan, or Vivi are my favorites. Jude because of how empowering she is. Cardan because I love his sass and how he pushes himself and Jude. And lastly VIVI!! I love her because of her defiance and how she will always be who she wants to be but will also always put family first. I also love how she is bi and how Holly Black put diversity in the book!!
The Faerie Tree
... In Ireland Hawthorn is used to create hedgerows that form the boundaries of pastures. These hedgerows create a patchwork of contiguous spaces, each energetically unique and held by Hawthorn’s thorns.
Hawthorn hedgerows are different from the solitary Hawthorn. A singular Hawthorn, or Faerie Tree, is a portal to the spirit realm. It nurtures your connection to the Other World, feeding your soul the food of dreams and stories. It’s bad luck to cut down a Faerie Tree; if you do, you damage this necessary connection with the collective unconscious.
In times past, you wouldn’t have wandered terribly far from the place where you were born and raised. The world is different now, and you have the glorious opportunity to call many places home. And yet . . . your heart sometimes longs for a landscape vastly different from the one in which you find yourself. If the answer to the following questions is no, use the ritual on the facing page to connect.
Are you connected to the place where you live?
Can your heart call it home?
Can you feel the gentle pulses of the earth? *Excerpt from The Illustrated Herbiary
How do you connect to your home?
My daughters bed side board, our four year old star child Deva.
There is a book “crystal children”, 3-4 oracle card decks, small faeries, and a bigger one sitting on a crescent moon. There is a small rock and a dream stone where she blows in her intention of good dreams and a glass hummingbird thing.
She has actually her own Mesa even which is a shamanic spiritual bundle of stones especially picked and blessed together with her mom.
And of course in the middle of all a lego stormtrooper has sneaked in, mostly likely by her older brother the “teddy bear yogi” who loves star wars.
They are just as any other children but with a touch of natural alternative-ness somehow. And without forcing anything we are just open to share if they ask. and we let them see a world like vegetation, vegan food, cold pressed juices, os meditating or doing pranayama just as anyone brushes their teeth or so, not mailing it to a to special thing.
A part of life is what it should be, but as for one self one has to have one own choice but at least knowing more then the general life made up by society that most if us follows as robots.
I am very curious to see how they form and how their journey will be!
AUM Shanti •
Taking a little time out of this busy stressful week for myself. Reconnecting with studying for my path starting with the fae, who have been with me since I was a small child. This book is fairly accurate minus a few things and I have found it a nice easy read. 🖤
If you wish to remember
from where you have come
Take a pinch of rosemary
Between finger and thumb
The scent will grow roots
One to forest
One to sea
For in remembering
Is our true prosperity.

December is turning out to be super busy for me, and I’m catching up on lots of stuff. I finished these Hawaii inspired faeries this summer, but I just got the coloring page uploaded to my Etsy shop today. Better late than never, maybe they waited till it was frosty outside to bring in some tropical fun! ✨🌸🧚♀️🌸✨
