The Sidhe card was drawn in a March 19th 2022 Equinox Reading. See Video: Equinox Oracle Reading + Guided Journey with Fairies, Sidhe, Elementals
This excerpt is from my upcoming book Sacred Spirits of Gaia: Co-Creating with Fairies, Elementals, Ancestors, and Spirits of Land.
Claim Your Faery Roots
I am of the Sidhe Faery Race named after sacred Celtic mounds. I welcome you with love into The Otherworld to bridge magical and physical realms of nature. Upper, Middle, and Lower Worlds are now one. Return to the magic of your blood/soul lineage. Sidhe Faery King has a gift for you—a golden cross to represent the crossroads where all directions meet. Fey treasures await when you claim your true lineage.
When you surrender to the love of Sidhe, you will radiate brightly.
I was given a key… a key that breaks old contracts and opens Faeryland to all. This experience happened during a shamanic drum journey that Jan Kinsey lead during a meeting of Fairy & Human Relations Congress visionaries and organizers. My intention for the shamanic journey was to go into The Otherworld to ask for more input, direction, and collaboration between the realms. I immediately entered Fairyland with the beat of the drum. Everything in nature was alive with the color, light, and energy.
A male Sidhe faery appeared, a king. Sidhe King told me to sit in a chair. The chair was a leather throne set high in the circle. Telepathically, he said: Take your place in the Circle. We are in Council, all of us. You, as human, and as one of us, Sidhe. I saw a circle of faeries, elves, nature spirits, and elementals. A long necklace was placed around my neck with a shiny gold Celtic cross pendant. I was given this sacred symbolic gift and told that the gold cross was an etheric key to break old contracts that keep us out of Faeryland. I used it, and felt my heart break open and become flooded with warmth and light. The key gave me an energetic healing transmission. I noticed a stack of golden keys had formed on my necklace. These keys were to be distributed to others to bring them back into deeper relations with the Sidhe, the faery race of the unseen realms. I was told to pass the keys on to others so they could unlock the door to remembering.
I shared my journey with the group, and I gave each person an energetic key. Some of the others cried with recognition at how deeply the church and pagan split cut through their hearts and souls and kept them divided. The full magic of Faeryland had been locked away due to old religious conflicts and patriarchal structures that creates a deep divide between religions of humanity and Faery, Pagan and Christianity. Deep wounds and outdated contracts need to be released.
Over the years, humanity has make huge strides re-connecting with fairies, the Sidhe, elementals, nature spirits, and devic realms. By receiving this gift directly from the Sidhe, we accept an invitation to empower ourselves to open more doors, dissolve taboos, and break old soul contracts within ourselves and lands. You are invited into a new level of remembering who you are and how you can come together with the magical realms once again.
The Sidhe or Daoine Sidhe (pronounced deenee shee) descended from the people of Danu or the Tuatha De Danann. Sidhe means people of the mounds. They are considered Ancestors, Gods, Goddess, Spirits of Nature as they were the pre-Celtic inhabitants of Ireland. They retreated into invisibility into underground mounds. I first connected with them through Danu who came to me when I was connecting with wild lilies and wildflowers in the forests of Oregon. There are many names for the Sidhe including the good people. The Fairy Faith is a set of practices used to stay in good relationship with them.
Connecting with the Sidhe centers you in the ancient tradition of Ireland and Scotland and a different experience than what you would have connecting with fairies in your garden in the United States. (I use a different spelling of fairy for the fairies of nature.) If you descend from this lineage, you may begin to remember what your ancestors knew. There are warnings about working with faeries in the UK. I will not speak on this because I do not have my own experiences to speak from. My experiences with Sidhe has been through spiritually connecting to them as I would an ascended master or angel or ancestral spirit. They are a powerful race of beings that wants to connect with humans to support the ascension of our planet. When I have connected with them, I have felt intense, boundless love and a deep respect for their purpose.
Some of my ancestors were persecuted for their faery beliefs. Cellular memories and generational trauma passed down through my lineage affected my ability to publically share my interest and work with the faery realms. For many years, I tread gently as I learned how to feel safe and free to share fairy secrets. It was easier to be silent to avoid ridicule, judgement, and shame. Among our wider culture, fairy belief in adults appears taboo. People are uncomfortable speaking out about their belief in the magical, mystical realms. It has taken me a long time to feel comfortable being a voice for faeries and fairy nature spirits. Yet, they need us. My personal discomfort and fears seem small in comparison with the fulfillment of being in service to nature’s angels, builders, and creators and the importance of stepping into new earth frequencies. My fear lessens as I speak out. I know I am here to encourage others, like you, to speak out on behalf of the Fay.
It was very helpful for me to recognize that my Celtic ancestors had ceremony and ritual that included fairies, nature spirits, and little people. Somehow, the idea that fairies and nature spirits were part of my ancestral religion touched me deeply. Faeries are much more than the media lead us to believe. Our culture devalues all that is more feminine in nature. Faeries are very powerful. Connecting with Sidhe faery race as well as fairies and nature spirits needs to be respected and valued as a sacred part of nature and life on earth.
Recently, The Sidhe wanted to participate in planetary light-work I was offering. My body was flooded with fear as I got on the Zoom call. It is common for me to feel the collective energy on the planet before I do a healing or event as my body is an instrument of sensing. I was guided to move my consciousness down into the inner earth so I could be in higher octave vibrations versus the surface of the earth where the fear was thick.
The Sidhe and Blue Elf came in to offer their gifts. Blue Elf directed elemental efforts for light to beam up from within the planet in different locations. The Sidhe brought their magical healing pink light and faery golden and green sparkles of joy into the light being distributed around the planet. It was an active energetic transmission from Nature for those that were open to receiving it. We felt more souls connecting with the Crystalline Grid and I got the message to open my feet to receive more earth energy. This will dissipate fear and offer a wave of love to counteract fear.
Sometimes it’s the simple things that are most powerful. Remembering to connect with the earth through your feet aligns you with your divinity and oneness. Also, it allows the release of old believes, myths, and programming from your nervous system. Accepting earth energy into your body is how your body stays healthy and vibrant especially through transitions. Receiving from Gaia opens your communication with the Sidhe, too. Be receptive. You may see or sense faeries showing up as a fire in your heart as they awake a light within your soul.
Co-Creating with the Sidhe
- Sidhe Ritual
Envision receiving a Celtic cross from the King—a key. Take this shiny, golden cross-key now and imagine placing it energetically in your heart space. Turn the key to unlock any chains/soul contracts that separate you from Faery, nature-based traditions, or lineages. It is so.
