That Haunting Question

get-attachment_(3)Introduction
There resides a haunting question within the
innermost recesses of man and woman. It is in the
ignoring of this eternal, or some might say “infernal,”
question that life happens. It can be a life lived in
so-called happiness, or it can be a life fraught with
many pitfalls and hardships. The question may arise in
the mind, but it must be solved in the heart. There it
will reside in that heart indefinitely until it is discerned
and solved.
Poets have probed this question for generations,
sometimes with agony, sometimes with a sense of
wonderment, but mostly with a sense of longing to
discover the answer. Many stories have this question as
the basis of the story, whether they are aware of it or not.
It is the hidden question that drives the characters, the
plot, and the conclusion. Songs almost always have this
question somewhere in the melody, the composition,
the words, or the notes. Paintings and artworks of
course can be added to this list, and on and on it can go.
This is a question that has plagued mankind for
generations. It can be said that it might actually be
the human condition. Thus it is an inner yearning or
discontent realized or ignored. The pursuit of the
answer can bring happiness or despair, depending on
the discernment, right or wrong of the answer. Actually,
happiness may accompany the wrong answer; but if
that person digs deeply, it is not actually joy but more
likely ego, selfishness, greed, or the love of power.
A very select group of people has actually correctly
discerned the question and answer and lived this
answer to great achievement, although outward
appearances may suggest otherwise, such as humility,
scarcity, disability, or even disease. However, if a person
is willing or forced to dig deep enough, the question
and the truth can be found with divine transformation
as the result.
This most mysterious question can burn a hole in
the heart, but with the right answer, it can be healed.
This hole may be the result of the way this life is lived,
or it may be the result of ancestors ignoring the great
question. They pass it forward to next generations in
the hopes that it will be easier for them to solve as they
learn from their elders. Or, and this is hard for many
to believe, this disease of life can come from previous
lifetimes. It may be lifetimes that ended incompletely,
abruptly, without accomplishing the goals of life, so
that the person has to return yet again to solve this
mysterious question and endeavor to find the answer.
Sometimes a person must come back again and again,
maybe thousands of lifetimes, getting closer each time
attempting to solve this mystery, until eventually this
question of life is answered. Ultimately then, life is
lived in peacefulness, abundance, and joy.
This story, although fiction (or not?), is essentially
about that question and the pursuit of the answer. It
is inspired by an actual event and a very real, peculiar,
broken headstone of a young woman from the early
1900s. That gravesite beckoned an unsuspecting man
to it one normal day, ensnaring him thus ensuring
that her story would be told. That encounter changed
the unsuspecting man’s life forever. Well, more than
one person’s life actually. As it is said, it created “the
ripple effect.”
It is hoped that the reader may see a bit of themselves,
or maybe someone they know, and recognize that
question hidden deep within each of them. The
ignoring of which has created wars, famine, pestilence,
and all manner of pains and ills. It is hoped that the
reader will find the answer to this question as well so
that the heart will receive its healing. Then ultimately,
the ripple effect will happen again, creating peace that
will be felt, thus pushing that peace or love forward.
All it takes is one person, one person at a time to affect
goodwill. It is my—our—prayer that this will take
place, one word, one note at a time. Please indulge your
imagination and enjoy this fairy’s tale with the love and
respect in which it was written.
What is the question? You already know. Who am I?
Why am I here? What is my purpose? What is this thing
called love?
Enjoy, in joy!
Starlight, precious Fairy Bright, you/we did indeed
create more light!

FACE FORWARD- Got my Attention by Great Advice Given

Mandala by Ellen

 Yes, it’s interesting and somewhat instructive to know how things got the way 
they are. What’s far more important, though, is what you choose to do going 
forward.

Pay attention to what has happened but don’t waste your precious and powerful 
energy becoming obsessed by it. Put that energy into moving in a positive 
direction.

It’s what you can do now that really matters. As big as they might have been, 
the expired opportunities of yesterday are now negligible compared to the 
possibilities of today.

What you can do now is connect with your most treasured dreams. What you can do 
now is act with passion and the highest expectations to bring those dreams to 
life.

Instead of living with wistfulness, regret, or anger about the past, you can 
live with positive purpose toward a great and shining future. The direction you 
face makes all the difference in the world, so make the choice to face forward.

This is a new moment, and with it comes the chance for a new start. Take that 
chance, grab that opportunity, and live your life forward in a beautiful and 
fulfilling way.

— Ralph Marston      Wishing All a Safe, Warm and Blessed Day

MIRACLES OF LIFE AT THE BEGINNING OF 2014 WITH FAIRY BRIGHT REVIEWS

 LIFE IS A MIRACLE by Chris Hertz- Singer, Songwriter, Musician

Jan. 1, 2014-( I opened up my email  and received this divine review. What a way to start a brand new year!! 2014, looks like a remarkable year.)

Wow, what a beautiful job you did with Fairy Bright. I was so impressed with your writing and illustrations that I never finished the book till after midnight. Your description of the foal was so accurate I was wondering where you observed that process. You were right on the money. And then how you gave a life to Fairy Berry not ever knowing her (it was such a positive, purposeful life).
The writing of the story was absolutely superb and the book flowed smoothly. You have to feel real good, I’m proud. Now where are you going to find the next one. I know you will. Thank you so much for the wonderful Christmas present that I will cherish. ( Don B.)

and thenReview of Broken Stone by n. k. hertz
N.K. Hertz is a talented new writer addressing eternal themes in a unique way. Underlying her part parable, part history, part fiction with spiritual, Christian and magical overtones woven together with a light touch are the eternal questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? What is love?
The story was triggered by the discovery of a broken headstone in a cemetery by a Steffen, while having his lunch. It was the pauper’s grave of Fairy Bright Gordon who died in 1934 after a short life.
The novel has clear roots in the southern tradition. It is full of lush descriptions with the heady perfumes and beautiful colours of North Carolina. Birds play a role including the humming bird but most importantly the flashing red cardinal, traditional emissaries of spirit. Fairy bright refers to the humming birds at one point as ‘My beloved fairies in disguise’.
She is very much a child of nature and narrates part of the novel. From her permanent place of rest in the potters field far from the fancy graves of the important people of her town. Yet even there she is graced by the presence of a magnificent dogwood dropping blossom on her broken headstone.
She observes the man on the day that he discovers her grave and picks up on a beautiful song that seems to appear from nowhere. As he contemplates the headstone she makes the decision to tell her story to him. Steffen is a man in crisis in his own life and this is described in detail. He is drawn by the music to begin to feel empowered and resume his passion for music, yet is haunted by the story of Fairy Bright Gordon.
As their stories unfold another player enters, Seta, a young disabled woman from Afghanistan with an American mother and a Sufi master father and a highly evolved level of spirituality. She meets Steffen on an airplane, connects deeply with him and passes him a gift.
About one third of the way into the book Fairy Bright’s story is introduced, itself with spiritual overtones from her moment of birth in 1917. She is a pure being graced with a connection to the fairy worlds, animals and nature, yet the circumstances of her birth result in a challenging life as the child of a widow living on a plantation. Her story is beautifully told from the magic of her childhood to the gradual unfolding of the reality of her vulnerability as her gifts were exploited by the powerful landowner Reynolds Hatcher.
There are surprises, twists and turns in the plot that allow magic to continue to be woven as the interconnection of character’s lives becomes revealed. We know of course that Fairy Bright died young but the suspense of how and why is well maintained. As the book continues further twists in the plot introduce more transforming spiritual themes including near death experience, reincarnation and the power of Love. Highly recommended. And don’t forget the music that accompanies the book! ( Patty Star)

another – Your Book! apologize for not responding sooner, finished it 2 days after getting it. Want to read it again, but all I can say now is I thoroughly enjoyed it. Liked the connections you created between the characters from different era’s and their eventual coming together. Imo, ( that’s all I have lol)  It’s well written, intriguing and captivating! Couldn’t put it down nor did I want to! Well done!  (Jim B.)

Current Energy Insights from the Universe

IMG_0151

“Ok . . . the few things I know for sure today are these . . .
Firstly we need to be self-contained. Even though we are beginning to move into oneness and unity . . . we cannot count on any other energy to sustain us. We need to learn to thrive on our own inner light. This is a required step in our evolution. So if you feel like the universe has ripped the rug from under your feet, well it just might be true. This is a time when we need to own our personal baggage. It is time to let go of all the guilt and forgive yourself for past situations and events . . . those things that you know you could have handled better. We must remember that, in the past, we did the best that we could have done with the resources we had at that time. We learn a lot from hard situations.”……excert of a quote from a wise woman, Aluna Joy

I have had the opportunity of reading Nancy's book "Broken Stone:
-A Real Fairy's Tale" and give it a thumbs up.
The book is different in a very good way. I have never read
a similar book and 
feel she must have had some help 
from above. But that is where good ideas come from anyway 
- right? I took the 
book to bed to read a little and 
could not put it down.  (Cecil)

This came across my radar screen, and I just couldn’t resist sharing! Fairies, Fairies, everywhere!!

Fairies, Fairies, Everywhere!!

~ We are finally seeing it happen all around us.  Old systems are crumbling, the truth is emerging (slowly, but definitely surely), and one by one the people are finally beginning to take notice.  As the Veil of Forgetfulness gets thinner and thinner, people will also begin observing and sensing something else;  the clear and very real presence of their un-incarnated family and friends.  They take a fascinating variety of forms!  Lovely Angelics;  Light Beings presenting themselves as delicate and colorful Orbs;  Galactic Brethren-so much like us ,yet of a much lighter vibration;  the Sacred Cetaceans, so playful and happy;  the list is endless, and I could go on and on for hours!  Today, however, it’s all about the Elemental Realm and in particular, the Fairies.

~ I’ve drawn today’s card from the Angel Therapy deck, and it is entitled “Fairies.”  There is so much to say about Fairies, and I know that there are many of you out there who are far more knowledgeable about them than I am.  So for now I’m going to focus only on the meaning of the card and the message which is coming through to me as I write.  This card is bringing attention to our natural bond with Gaia and the Elemental Realm.  It is reminding us that we came here to Earth to be of assistance to Her, in addition to any other duties we agreed to perform.  It’s really easy to lose sight of this fact sometimes.  As Lightworkers we are becoming more and more conscious of our missions.  We are writers, healers, speakers, system-busters…  But in addition to these roles, we also – without exception – agreed to come in as Earthly custodians.  We are Gaia’s Army!

~ The Fairies wish to remind us that we must each take personal responsibility for the health and recovery of our planet.  They are encouraging us to be eco-conscious with each decision we make.  This may be done by being selective in the products we buy, the manner in which we prepare our food and dispose of our trash, how we educate our children and the example we set in our community.  They wish to make you more aware of their own presence.  They would dearly like to connect with you and share their invaluable wisdom!

images~ To make contact with the Fairy Realm, you need only step outside your front door!  The Fairies are absolutely everywhere in Nature, and as I type this they are quick to step in and say “You don’t need to go outdoors to find us.  We are in your homes, surrounding your houseplants and the animals. We are working to purify your water supply.”  Try connecting during meditation, or simply close your eyes and allow a message or a vision to take shape.  The Fairies are right beside us.  They are here in our physical world, living among us and assisting us in ways they we are not even aware of.  Their close proximity makes them exceptionally accessible, and somewhat easier for a beginner to see and hear than many of our Galactic and Angelic Guides.  Take a walk out in Nature and focus your gaze upon the flowers and they trees.  Hold your attention there and allow the connection to take place.  Bring a notebook and pen with you and record any impressions that you get.  The Fairies are also Master Manifesters!  They are anxious to help you bring your creative ideas to fruition!

As I mentioned before, I know that a lot of my readers are already actively working with the Fairies on a regular basis, and I would love for you to share your wisdom with us in the Comment section.  Have a magical day…  Bella.

Broken Stone: A Real Fairy’s Tale

By N. K. Hertz

Consumer Copy


It has been said that we should not know the future, as it could scare us to death!Little did Steffen know one ordinary day during an ordinary walk through the cemetery that his future was about to be profoundly changed! He did not know that she was waiting for him, beside her broken headstone. She called to him, with her siren song that only he could hear. Hypnotically, he followed the song to her forgotten, broken gravesite. Hackles rose on his neck as he contemplated her name and date: Fairy Bright Gordon, 1917-1934. Was this eerie feeling a premonition of things to come?

So begins the story in Broken Stone: A Real Fairy’s Tale. It tells the tale of a young woman in the early 1900’s that lived a short mysterious life. Someone needed to hear her story so that her early death would not have been in vain. That someone was Steffen, a modern day architect that frequently walked on his lunch hour as a quiet break from his stressed-filled days. Unsuspecting, he could not know that Fairy Bright would become his confidant, mentor and tormentor, turning his life upside down and inside out as he questioned all he thought he knew about himself, spirituality and the world. He could not be prepared for the extraordinary, bizarre turns this and other strange encounters would provoke, forcing either his enlightenment or early demise!
