Fairy Day. These mischievous folks come out of their hiding places on May 4th every year. Leave an offering of bread, tea, raisins or bird seed for the fairy folk. Never leave left-overs. The fairies will feel insulted, and who knows what they might do to exact revenge.

Fairies have been known to steal small children, so keep an eye on your little ones today.

I often think that Persephone was stolen by fairies, and perhaps sold to Hades. Who knows?

If you are traveling, wear your coat, t-shirt,sweatshirt or hoodie inside out. That confuses fairies and protects you from fairy mischief.


Prayer method: Find a piece of string or ribbon about a foot or two long. Run your fingers over the silky material and think, “I am grateful, I am grateful, I am so grateful.” When it holds enough of your gratitude, take it outside to a place where birds will be attracted to it. The birds take your thoughts of gratitude with them to the heavens.

You might have a different gratitude ribbon every week or every month. We want to send our prayers to heaven often
