Maggie Hamiltion – Reconnecting to the Magical World of Fairies

Maggie Hamilton enchanted her audience at the Academy of Light with experiences of the realm of fairies and nature spirits. 
Sydney-based author and social researcher, Maggie has been fascinated by fairies since she was a child growing up in the English countryside.
Fairy tales were originally part of a rich oral tradition passed down from one generation to the next -usually by the women folk. 
The German philosopher Joseph Herder encouraged people to collect the folk tales and songs, which he saw as the heart of a people. The Grimm brothers were one of the first to gather the stories – publishing them as a collection in 1812. Since then, Grimm’s Fairy Tales expanded. Many other writers and artists were inspired to collect these precious fragments from the past, including WB Yeats and Thomas Keightley. Later, the Fairy Investigation Society was formed in London in the 1920s to investigate these beings scientifically. Members included Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Walt Disney.
Fairy tales have captured the imagination of children for thousands of years. Children perceive these beings as real. Yet, as we grow older, we lose our capacity to see them because we are told they are part of our imagination.
Fairies do not vibrate at the same frequency or exist in the same dimension as we do – so they are not generally visible as physical bodies. Yet that does not mean they’re not right there with us. These living intelligences of nature are ever-present and can be accessed by anybody who wants to connect to them – through the beauty of the moment, through senses other than sight. We know when we’ve accessed the heightened vibrations of the fairy realm, as we experience a quiet ecstasy and often details in our immediate surroundings seem hyper-real – more lovely, more colourful, more scented than normal -bringing with them healing, wisdom and connection to all that is. 

Maggie says that if we want to enter the realm of fairies, we need to get back to nature. “The fairy world speaks to us through every ‘aha’ moment we have in nature – a magical sunset, colourful autumn leaves, sparkling spring water.” 
“Find your sacred places in nature – a special tree, a garden, or any holy place that enables you to become whole again. Drink in the colours, smells and textures that make you feel alive – lifting you into a quantum field – the eternal now.”
“Trees are a good place to start connecting with the elemental spirits. Run your fingers lovingly around the trunk. Notice the dance of the trees.”
“Rocks, like trees are wisdom keepers – so treat them with respect. See the sacredness in drops of rain or puddles. Listen to the birdsong at the beginning of day and at dusk.”
Maggie explained that by sensitising ourselves to the natural world, we also allow the spirit of land to speak to us. Fairies might not be seen, but every ecstatic moment in nature allows us to experience the healing gifts of the fairy realm.
If you want to learn more about how to connect with nature spirits, you can purchase Maggie’s book “Inside the Secret Life of Fairies”,  which is available at https://www.maggiehamilton.org

Jumping into 2020 With a Little Help From Uluru and Mount Kilimanjaro

How do the Earth portals and guardians of Uluru/Kata Tjuta, Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa and the Great Pyramid, Egypt help to guide an exciting era of cultural redesign and innovation birthing in 2020? How can you personally engage with these new currents of love, light and creation pulsing through you with each beat of the Earth Mother’s heart?

The historic closure of Uluru to climbing its summit last month is in perfect divine timing for the preparation of the very significant Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on 12 January 2020. Robert Coon states that as the world’s solar plexus chakra, Uluru is the ritual centre of the world for this event which hales an unprecedented connection of all life to its Source and to our immortal nature. This is a time for you and I to trust in our heart and jump in to the river of life that this opens us to and embrace the mystery of where it will take us. It will be a time when unexpected doors burst open, and will we say “yes” or “no” to them? Will you take the red pill or the blue pill?

In anticipation of this event and several other significant astrological events next year, Ocha is offering sacred journeys to both Mount Kilimanjaro and Uluru/Kata Tjuta in 2020, and will explain how you can also connect to these great portals yourself to receive their immense support during huge change at this time. You can choose to ride these waves that bring a freedom of expression that may never have been experienced by your soul ever before here on Earth. She will also lead you into beautiful meditational experience of Mount Kilimanjaro’s temples of light to receive its gifts of joy and liberty for your heart. She looks forward to sharing this with you.
