Beltaine on Short Mountain
It is Beltane! The Earth softens under the caress of the sun and all the world is new. We emerge from the darkness of a long, difficult winter; our eyes drink in rolling green hills budding branches and tender shoots. We breathe deeply the fresh fragrance of radiant blossoms. Merriment calls!
May the light of the Goddess and God bless each of you as we move beyond the darkest part of our year. Remember your loved ones and those in need... we are all extremely blessed to have each other and to share a fraction of our love for the Earth and each other is a great gift.
Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Visualize a natural wooded setting.
Sit down beneath a large tree with your back against it. Feel its strength.
Connect with its life force. Relax in this setting, letting all your
tensions and worries pour into the tree, down through its roots and into
the soil. You feel renewed and completely alive.
Now look around you.
Be aware of the wildflowers,
the ferns and the sunlight
as it glimmers
through the leafy green canopy
above your head.
Take another deep breath
and go deeper into your mind's eye.
Do you see a tiny flicker
of light that catches your attention?
Do you hear a faint whirling sound
like tiny wings?
Perhaps you hear
the soft tinkling of bells.
All these things signal
the presence of a fairy.
If you see nothing,
consult the child inside you,
for he or she surely will.
If a faerie appears, welcome him and ask it politely if he could teach
you what you most need to know at this time. A Radical Faerie might reveal
a connection to your beautiful queer heart to heal you. An insightful faerie might show you how to meditate with mindful awareness. A Druidic faerie might share his sexual energy to help connect to the forest spirit.
An older faerie might help you learn from his experience and wisdom. A young faerie might awaken your inner queer child.

When you come to know that your entitlement to joy is a given, All that remains is the exploration of the many different ways to let it in
