Inspiration Sprouted Through a Gesture of Gratitude…
Life slowed down and a stroll to gather mail sparked interest in a little boy filled with wonder and curiosity and an innate eagerness to know more. Holding a collection of envelopes, catalogs and advertisements the little boy’s interest was peaked by an envelope decorated with squiggle lines, sparkles, colorful bands and stickers. Delivering the mail to his Mom, he wanted to know if the decorated envelope was for him. A tinge of disappointment surfaced when he learned it was not. The letter was for Mom. Sitting patiently next to his mom, she opened and read my note aloud. A feeling of joy trickled into his earnest spirit. On the back of the card, a birthday wish was written in hopes for a year filled with laughter and fun for her little boy.
I sent the letter (a thank you note) to his mom, my friend. She shared the initial disappointment her little boy experienced then the spark of excitement by my birthday wish. I suggested I could write a letter to him about his energy (Nine Star Ki), since his Mom reminded him of who I am. “You know, the Feng Shui person. She does energy work.” A shrug of the shoulders perhaps and then off to play. With approval from his Mom, I wrote to her little boy about his amazing energy. I shared with him the abilities his Nine Star Ki energy possesses naturally. The focus of the letter centered around one specific area of his energy. I shared with him how his metal energy is the same as having super powers. Metal energy is strong and it gives him the ability to think fast and solve problems. I suggested he strengthen his metal energy by working on a variety of puzzles and other activities to sharpen his thinking skills because the world needs people who are good at solving problems. I explained to him about the importance for people who use their energy for problem solving to maintain balance in their life. I encouraged him to practice yoga with his Mom. Writing and sharing information and insight with my friend’s son was truly a gift. I loved imagining and then discovering how the work of Feng Shui and Nine Star Ki would create interest for a child.
The card was received and the message resonated. “…loved your note and [brother] would love to see what you have to say about him!” In my friend’s message to me, she shared that yoga and meditation are a regular practice for their family. I responded, “Wonderful! …more energy notes coming your way!!” And then my friend responded with the message… “You’re the energy fairy!”
Yes! Inspiration and acknowledgment! The Energy Fairy has the understanding and expertise to connect a person (of any age) with their energy and celebrate its beauty. With a clear understanding of one’s Ki, a person is then able to gain another perspective which offers insight and lets them appreciate themselves as wonderful and truly special. The simple act of writing a note and imparting knowledge connecting the receiver with the essence of their energy has significance and meaning. A “fairy” offers another medium to share information filled will marvel to spark curiosity and begin the process seeing oneself more clearly. The hand that is first up to answer every question in class requires more understanding for who the individual is at the essence of their being. So often, an individual is benefited by having their brilliance recognized in a way that does not begin to diminish their light. There are many examples where certain characteristics a person possesses is misunderstood (particularly in a young person). The misunderstandings cause shifts and a potentially extraordinary characteristic is interpreted as a flaw. It is my hope for everyone’s light to shine bright for themselves and the world.
