130 – The Faerie Rose

by Brian Froud.

This week we share a personal experience which at first glance, might appear to be a simple, ordinary exchange between 2 people about a very special rose, but… could it actually have been a profound, life-changing moment?

I believe that oftentimes when we encounter the Good People, we don’t realize it until sometime later. Our busy conscious mind might not recognise this, but our subconscious mind does.

 

And it doesn’t let it go. It is alerted by unusual signals, it recognises the rare signs. The flags go up. The hair on the back of your neck tingles.

All signs that the sighting, encounter or interaction was not ‘normal’, that there was something ‘other’ in the experience. And that’s when things get really interesting. When we open our minds to the ‘other’.
