Update from the Fairy Tale Dimension

It has been some time since I told you about my work as the ring-bearer in the Fairy Tale Dimension.

Here I live a normal life with my family. I work in my home and as a healing practitioner. I coach people and write blog articles on personal development, mostly in German, and do live workshops. I enjoy working internationally.

One part of me is connected closely to the Fairy Tale Dimension

I am visiting the Fairy Tale Dimension often. But in my daily life I am not aware of doing this. This is a good thing because I am rooted here and I can distinguish this reality from the one in the Fairy Tale Dimension easily. Otherwise I would probably get confused and end up in an institution.

The ring-bearer before me

My predecessor was from the Fairy Tale Dimension. He was a magician with a mischievous smile whom I picture with a long grey beard and a Merlin outfit. He had the job for about 300 years. He was a very nice guy and much liked by everybody. He loved meeting people and partying. His strong point was to keep the fairy tale countries together.

Magier Playmo

He visited our dimension often in medieval times

Because he could materialize anywhere he wanted to he was one of the most travelled persons of that time. He visited the Aborigines of Australia when they still had the continent to themselves, for example.

He perceived our planet as one living being and was very taken by its beauty and interconnected life.

This is different from the Fairy Tale Dimension where very diverse countries exist side by side that can function well apart from each other. When you change something in one country it does not affect the others much.

On our planet we are only now learning how closely everything is interconnected

When there is a war in one part of our world the other parts are touched by the violent energies, too. It does not matter that we don´t feel this consciously. When people suffer somewhere the rest of us also suffers but we are often too numb to feel it. It is in all of our interest to become more aware of our interconnectedness. We are getting there:

People start to tap more into our planet´s agonies

This spring I had the first clients who felt uneasy and restless and did not understand why they had trouble sleeping. I found out that they had tapped into the suffering of our planet. When they understood the reason for their symptoms and I helped them to buffer the excess energies they could sleep again.

I also feel the trauma many people are experiencing at the moment. I experience gloomy days, feeling unwell and headaches. It took some time before I realised that my compassion was getting the best of me. Of course it is not very efficient to feel bad when you want to support and lend energy. I realised I have to buffer much more now and this helps.

Send me an E-mail if

you have unexplainable symptoms like

  • bad sleep
  • feeling restless
  • some doom and gloom days
  • feeling helpless
  • sudden fear
  • unusual headaches or feeling dizzy

I tell you for free the whole of November 2019 whether your symptoms are connected to the turmoil we are in.

What my predecessor accomplished

My predecessor as a ring-bearer was very fond of the multitude of life in the millions of our galaxies. He loved all the life forms he found and the diversity he discovered. He kept notes and dictated them to his secretaries back home. His travel accounts fill a big bookcase in the magic library.

His aim was to link the two dimensions in a very beneficial way and he did accomplish that.

Where my predecessor failed

What he did not achieve – like many ring bearers before him – was the frequency change  that is so vital for the development and the wellbeing of the Fairy Tale Dimension. It has to be done every 2.000 years by the current ring-bearer. It was long overdue by the time the ring energy was brought to me four years ago.

Because of his many travels he did not apply himself enough to mastering the third rune of the ring that enables the necessary changes of the blueprint of the dimension.

100 percent self-acceptance is needed

The blueprint of the Fairy Tale Dimension is a living entity. You have to be totally in tune with yourself to safely channel the energies necessary to complete the frequency change. Otherwise you create disturbances that literally tear you apart. Only somebody who is totally accepting of self can channel these energies without getting hurt.

Sadly he left this task to his successor – me – a human being who is still developing her healing abilities. My talent as a healer was the reason why I was chosen by the ring energy to be the living link between our two dimensions.

I have been working on my self-acceptance since my early twenties. To complete the frequency change I knew I needed to reach a level of 100% of self-acceptance. How was I ever going to manage that?

magician

Time was running out in the Fairy Tale Dimension

I was not sure whether I could ever achieve 100%. I was practising a lot to master the two gatekeeper runes of the ring that were there for training purposes. I was very much aware of the growing urgency:

The whole Fairy Tale Dimension was showing signs of sickness and a lot of beings were suffering. They never had to do that in the past. Instant healing was what they were used to. My healing circle and me did our best to try to alleviate the worst consequences but time was running out.

Practise and training

I had a lot of help with the training. My favourite tree teacher was practising with me a lot because I had to learn how to manipulate huge amounts of energy. Accidents could have been very harmful for the whole dimension. Soon the specially proofed rooms of the magic school could not buffer these energies any more. Magicians from all over the dimension volunteered to help contain the dangerous results of my training.

When I tap into this I see a circle of beings – magicians can have almost every shape and form – struggling to keep a big containment field intact. We all ended up with singed body parts and torn clothes a lot of times. And more than once there was a big crater because I had vaporised us all. Thankfully death and injuries are not permanent there and we reappeared with ringing ears the next instant and evaluated what went wrong.

Humour is an integral part of the Fairy Tale Dimension

The magicians laughed so much about my futile attempts that they often pissed me off. Hey, I was doing this for them and they were rolling on the ground holding their bellies laughing!

What I cherished was the support and the companionship of this diverse group of beings. They never wavered in their trust. Well, they did not really have an alternative.

I only reached 100% self-acceptance once in the beginning of February 2018 in a meditation; assisted by my husband who is an expert energy manipulator. Thankfully that was enough. The moment I realised that I was at 100% the first thing I did was finalise the frequency change in the Fairy Tale Dimension. How relieved I felt you cannot imagine!

I have not been at 100% self-acceptance ever since. I remember this wonderful feeling of inner peace and I am still working towards that goal. This is not easy with all the not good enoughs we are brought up with.

One and a half years after the frequency change

The healing of the ill effects of the delay of frequency change is still in progress. People, plants and everything else are slowly returning to a healthy state.

space-big copy

My big tour through the Fairy Tale Dimension

Since the change I have been on a big tour through every country. I am keeping up the tradition of my predecessor in getting to know as much about the other dimension as I possibly can.

Even with my many means of transportation: Library tunnels, teleporting and the flying boots I only manage to visit three or four countries per day. It will take decades to complete my task and I am not sure whether I will be ever able to finish it. I do it anyway. It is so much fun for everybody.

Empty and overcrowded countries

On this journey I learn a lot. I have discovered some abandoned fairy tale countries. Together with the GrImporter I decide whether we can still use them or if they should make place for new ones.

Some countries are crowded. The Rapunzel country is one of them. Here I work together with local magicians and gentry to decide how and where to create more space.

With everybody worrying about the frequency change maintenance concerning individual countries wasn´t a priority.

How do I know all this about the Fairy Tale Dimension?

I get the information I am sharing here by tapping into it. When I do my looking behind the scenes articles I tap into these countries and share my impressions.

What is tapping into?

Tapping into is much like every author of fiction works. I just heard Sebastian Fitzek, the internationally successful German writer of thrillers, say in an interview that 80 pages into a new book, his main figures take over the lead and all his plans for the plot are for the waste paper basket. He just hopes that the story will have an end he can live with. He has not believed other writers who told the same story until he experienced it himself.

Every book is real somewhere

When an author is writing he is tapping into another reality. Every book that is written is true in some realm and the writer finds the key to this reality and transports it back here for us to enjoy.

Tapping into while writing

This is just what I do: I tap into the Fairy Tale Dimension and I tell you about it in my behind the scenes articles:

Writing this blog motivates me to take the time to sit down and tap into the Fairy Tale Dimension regularly. While writing information and impressions find their way into my mind and onto the page.

Or in the shower

One of the places where I can tap into the Fairy Tale Dimension very well besides the computer is the shower. This is the reason why I sometimes stay in the shower much longer than necessary for cleaning purposes.

How accurate are my impressions of the Fairy Tale Dimension?

I have no idea. There is no scientific proof of anything of this yet. Scientists are still working on the the theories of multiple dimensions.

Does it matter? Not really. It widens my awareness to tap into the Fairy Tale Dimension. It has become much more easy to create my reality here because I can see many more possibilities. And it is fun!

Do you have any questions about the Fairy Tale Dimension and my role as the ring-bearer? Don´t hesitate to ask.

Are there any fairy tale countries you would like to have behind the scenes information of?

The Beautiful Palace East of the Sun and North of the Earth

This Norwegian fairy tale involves many typical aspects of fairy tales. It is a great example of the way fairy tales work.

The story of the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth

Three doves

A farmer was wondering who kept trampling the grass of his favourite meadow at night.

He sent his three sons to investigate and keep watch. The two older sons fell asleep and could not find out anything. The youngest saw three white doves landing, shedding their plumage and turning into lovely maidens. While they danced he stole their plumages.  Watching them dance he fell in love with one of the girls, who turned out to be a Princess.

The girls kept dancing until dawn and then searched frantically for their means of transportation. When they discovered him the lad enquired where they came from. They told him that they lived out of reach of humans in the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth and were a Princess and her attendants. He only gave their plumages back to them when a date for the wedding with the Princess was set.

He went back home but did not admit to having solved the puzzle. When the date for the marriage approached he asked his father for permission to host a big feast.

The wedding

On the day of the feast a golden carriage pulled up in front of the farmhouse at midnight and the three beautiful maidens got out. After the ceremony and before dawn the three girls were eager to leave. The new bride explained that they were kept hostage by evil trolls and only rarely had the chance to get out.

Before they left the Princess gave the groom a golden ring to remember her by and her two attendants added two golden apples.

Soon after that the young lad left home to search for the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth where his beloved was kept hostage.

A long journey began

fairytale-giant-prawny

Three giants and three magic items

On his journey he first met two giants who were quarrelling over an heirloom of their father´s: A pair of 100-mile-boots. As they could not come to an understanding he convinced them that it was wise to give the boots to him.

Soon after that he stumbled over two more giants fighting over an inheritance of their father´s. This time he was rewarded with an invisible cloak.

The third time he met two quarrelling giants he acquired a magic sword: If you touch somebody with its tip he dies and if you touch him with the hilt he comes back to life.

He met three women who commanded the animal kingdom

With these three precious objects he reached a vast desert and met an ancient woman. He asked her nicely for shelter. She answered that he could stay because she has seen 12 oak forests wither and in all this time nobody treated her as kindly as he did. He inquired of the whereabouts of the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth. And she asked the animals of the earth that she commanded for information.

Sadly the animals couldn´t help and the woman sent him on to her older sister who ruled the fish. But the fish could not help either. This sister then sent him on to the third even older sister who was the ruler of the birds in the sky.

At first the birds also couldn´t help. But the phoenix arrived late and was totally exhausted from his long journey from the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth.

phoenix-leandrodecarvalho

The last leg of his journey to the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth

The old woman commanded the phoenix to take the young man there. They flew a long time and three times the bird asked its passenger what he saw. At first he could only make out a blue cloud on the horizon, then a small speck inside the cloud and finally he could see the palace itself.

Three times proof to gain entrance

At midnight when the trolls were soundly asleep the prince knocked on the gates of the castle. First one of the Princess´ attendants came to see who was knocking. He gave her a golden apple as proof, then the second attendant came to whom he gave the second apple and finally the Princess herself came looking who could not believe that her new husband managed to find her. He gave her back the ring.

Overjoyed she let him in. When the sun was rising he told him to leave because the trolls would kill him if they found him.

Saving his bride and the whole kingdom

He left and put on his boots and cloak and waited at the gate with his sword in hand. As the trolls approached he killed them one by one before they could even get aware of him.

After freeing his bride he resurrected her father and the other relatives who had been killed by the trolls with the hilt of his magic sword. After this he and his wife happily ruled over the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth.

Rich imagery in the beautiful palace east of the sun and north of the earth

I am enchanted by this elaborate fairy tale. It has all the important ingredients of a good story: Adventure, evil, love, daring and success. It features a lot of the unique qualities the Fairy Tale Dimension offers:

1. The number three

The mystical number three is everywhere in this fairy tale: Three brothers, three maidens, three gifts, three pairs of giants, three magical objects, three old women, three sightings of the castle, three times proof until he is let in.

Three is a magical mythological number. We use it a lot because things that are counted in threes feel complete to us.

  • We consider the third time we do something lucky
  • In Christianity the holy trinity plays a big role
  • Western music uses triads as base elements

The three stands for connection, integration and harmony

  • The connection of body, soul and spirit
  • Faith, love and hope
  • liberty, equality and fraternity

Three is also the number of time

  • Beginning, middle and end
  • Birth, life and death
  • Past, future and present

Three insignias of the ring bearer appear in this fairy tale

a. The ring

The young man carries a ring that opens the door to the castle for him. The ring bearer can open the doors for evolution of the Fairy Tale Dimension with her ring that enables her to change the blueprint.

b. The 100-mile-boots

are also part of the ring bearer´s gear, enabling her to get everywhere fast.

c. The cloak of invisibility

Is very helpful because the ring bearer is otherwise easily recognised; even when using disguises. The cloak shields all her energy and the ring bearer can wander around unseen.

2. Getting information:

In this fairy tale three groups of animals have their eyes and ears, fins and tales everywhere. In the Fairy Tale Dimension this is the role of the Shadows:

When they are not needed by their owners the Shadows have their own life: When they don´t cast a shadow they are free to roam. They are loyal to the ring bearer whose job is to make sure that the Fairy Tale Dimension keeps functioning well. Since the shadows are everywhere they know everything that is going on.

When there are feuds between countries or other upheavals it is very handy to have an intelligence organisation at one´s disposal.

3. Resurrection

In this tale resurrection from death is easily achieved with the help of the magic sword.

Death is not permanent in the Fairy Tale Dimension. Just by willing yourself to wake up again you can resurrect yourself as well as healing wounds instantly.

Graves therefore are only needed for playing. I imagine the Princess´s family in this tale were bored by having to lie in a tomb until they were allowed to play again.

4. Going on quests and achieving the impossible

Is an all time favourite in the Fairy Tale Dimension. The young farmer´s son on his quest is lucky to meet the right people. He is nice and unpretentious. He seems to feel secure in his own skin and determined not to give up no matter what. He starts his journey and has faith in himself because the alternative is sitting at home being sad. His assets are his considerable intelligence and his positive nature.

nature-conservation-mysticartdesign

What can this fairy tale tell us today?

The young lad manages to achieve the impossible. We too face challenges that are beyond anything we are accustomed to: We have no idea how to cope with this climate change yet. In this situation it does not help to stay where we are and weep. We need intelligent creative people who are willing to do something about it.

We are not going to manage these challenges as individuals. We need to support each other as shown in this fairy tale by the connection of the number three. Many talents are needed. There is so much strength in connecting with others, trusting ourselves, trying new solutions, failing and trying again.

 

Thank you for making me aware of this wonderful fairy tale, Hans-Jürgen.

Do you have a favourite fairy tale that I have not featured yet? Write me in the comments, send me an e-mail or join my facebook group.

Here you can read the long version of the fairy tale.

I have not found much about this tale in my usual sources. There is another Norwegian fairy tale however where a young woman saves a prince from a wicked stepmother called East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

My reader Julia knew that the fairy tale inspired the Norwegian band A-HA for their album East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Thank you for the tip.

Behind the Scenes of the Fairy Tale Rapunzel

The Grimm brothers made Rapunzel famous. But its origin goes back to the 17th century to Petrosinella by Giambattista Basile, which was published in 1634. Its plot has been used and parodied in many media and its best-known line “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair” has become legendary.

The heroine of this fairy tale got her name Rapunzel from a plant. Rapunzel is the German word for a kind of small green salad. I had to look it up. It looks a lot like lambs lettuce. Perhaps Rapunzel was more common in people´s gardens when the fairy tale was written. The English translation for Rapunzel is rampion. You can see some pictures of rampion here: It seems to be popular in Italy and Spain.

The fairy tale of Rapunzel

Some people like to make things complicated: Rapunzel´s mother had a hard time getting pregnant. When she finally was pregnant she developed an insatiable craving for rampion. She would eat nothing else thus endangering her life and the life of her child.

The cravings of pregnant women are legendary. To this day soon-to-be fathers can be seen searching everywhere for the strange foods their beloved mates crave. In this fairy tale the husband steals the rampion for his wife in the neighbouring garden which – tough luck – belongs to an evil witch. Of course he gets caught and the witch agrees to share her salad with the couple in exchange for the baby.

That is a very extreme demand but the husband seemed to be so terrified that he would have agreed to anything. When the child was born the witch got it and the parents are never talked about again.

salad-Rapunzel ivabalk

Rapunzel was very beautiful and she had wonderful long blond hair. When she was 12 years old the old Witch shut her in a tower without stairs or doors. When she visited she called to a window:
“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair.”
When she heard the Witch’s voice Rapunzel let her braids fall 5 metres down out of the window and the Witch climbed up.
After a few years a Prince on his horse passed by Rapunzel´s tower. As he came near he heard someone singing so sweetly that he stopped to listen. The Prince longed to see the owner of the voice, but he sought in vain for a door in the tower. Nevertheless he returned to listen often. One day, when he was standing behind a tree, he saw the Witch approach and heard her call:
“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair.”
Rapunzel let down her plaits and the Witch climbed up.”So that is the staircase”, said the Prince. ” I can use it, too.” At dusk on the following day he went to the tower and called:
“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair.”
This way the Prince finally met Rapunzel. At first Rapunzel was frightened when she saw him because she had never seen a man before. (Really??) But the Prince was a friendly guy.  He convinced her that his heart had been so touched by her singing that he just had to meet her. Rapunzel overcame her fear, and when he asked her to marry him she agreed. Her sensible reasoning was that she would be much happier with the Prince than with the evil Witch who held her captive. She put her hand in his and said:
“Yes, I would like to go with you, but how do I get out of this tower? Every time you come to see me please bring a skein of silk and I will make a ladder. When it is ready I can climb down and you can take me away.”
Because the old woman was with her during the day the Prince visited her every evening and brought her silk. The old Witch had no idea what was going on. Sadly one day Rapunzel gave herself away when she asked the Witch: Why are you so much harder to pull up than my Prince?
“You disobedient child”, cried the Witch. “I thought I had hidden you safely from the world but you have deceived me.”
In her wrath she seized Rapunzel’s beautiful hair, took a pair of scissors and cut it off: The beautiful plaits fell to the ground. Afterwards  she took Rapunzel to a desert far away and left her there.
On the evening of the day Rapunzel got exiled the Witch fastened the plaits on a hook near the window. When the Prince came and called:
“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair,” she let the Rapunzel´s braid down and the Prince climbed up. But instead of Rapunzel he encountered the evil Witch.
” You wanted to meet your love, but she is gone for good, Prince. You will never see her again.” she said.
In his despair and in spite of the height the Prince jumped straight down from the tower. He fell into thorns that hurt his eyes and blinded him. After this he wandered blindly through the world, lonely and lamenting the loss of his Rapunzel.
He wandered around for years and at last he came to the desert where Rapunzel was living. He recognised her beautiful voice singing. He walked in the direction of the sound, and when he came close, Rapunzel recognised him, ran into his arms and wept. When her tears touched his eyes a miracle happened and he could see again. He led her to his kingdom, where they lived happily ever after.

Versions

There are plenty versions of the Rapunzel story. In some versions Rapunzel is exiled to other remote places, being pregnant (with twins) or not. But the two lovers always find each other in the end. What happens with the witch is not clear.

This fairy tale is puzzling to me

Eating rampion during pregnancy does not seem to make the child smart. Or is it the hair colour? The disaster unfolds when Rapunzel gives herself away. Why on earth do they make it so complicated to escape and deicide to fabricate a ladder of silk? She could have cut her own hair off, too.

Did they never hear of rope ladders? Even a rope with a few knots would have done the trick. The two protagonists are young and agile after all.

Why would his people leave the Prince alone and not search for him? Is a blind prince not fit to rule? Is there discrimination involved?

Well, after all these complications hardships, and endurance follow and the happy end due to magic healing gives us all peace.

Hardships were seen as a way to heaven

When the fairy tale was originally written life was very hard. The clergy and gentry had a great interest in ruling obedient people. The people were taught, also by fairy tales, to endure their hardships quietly here on earth. They were promised a reward for this later in heaven.

Behind the Scenes of the Fairy Tale Country of Rapunzel

Great Hair Magic

This country is popular for its hair magic In the Fairy Tale Dimension. The magicians and hairdressers who live here have a very long tradition of growing and grooming hair for humans and other species.

There are potions that make any hair grow fast and in all kinds of colours and textures. The hairdressers are able to fabricate all kinds of crazy hair- and beard-styles that would not be possible without a generous dose of magic.

The hair-magicians are very popular and often invited for festivities in other fairy tale countries. Their creations are status symbols for vain kings and queens.

man-josephmelo

The lay of Rapunzel land

The countryside is characterised by dense woods, small villages and most importantly many many towers. Some towers are hundreds of metres up, some are under water, some levitate or change place randomly.

They are also in deserts and high mountains. People live by hunting and farm for their food. They generally lead quiet and peaceful lives.

For a few weeks every year however they celebrate a big festival. People from far away visit to take part in get-togethers and parties. They try their luck in contests  climbing the various towers and freeing the people who are incarcerated there.

These festivities are great occasions to meet people and find a mate. This is why the festival is so popular with young people. You can compare it to a music festival in our dimension: There you can meet people from all over who share a similar interest in music.

Role-play is an all time favourite in the Fairy Tale Dimension

A. Some people try to get up and into the towers

So besides crazy hairdos the race to the top of a tower to free the favourite boy or girl is the goal of the game. When you succeed you get to spend time as a twosome in the towersuite with meals served and other amenities before you decide to come back down.

Using magic potions to levitate up the towers is frowned upon as cheating. So people are creative constructing wings, swinging lassos or building ladders.

Some have tried using magic beans to speed their ascent up. But you never know how potent your beans are. When you are unlucky you get thrown over the clouds only to fight with the giants waiting for youin the bean country up above. Or the roots destroy the tower in the process of growing thus ending the game prematurely.

Like so often in the Fairy Tale Dimension the cunning and intelligent people will win the prize.

B. Some people like to play up in the towers

The people in the towers either help the intruders up – with or without employing their hair. Or they fight off unwanted suitors and try to keep them away from the tower by every means they can think of.

It is no surprise that people get hurt and die all the time during the festivities. But remember, in the Fairy Tale Dimension this is not permanent and can be easily remedied – and the game can go on.

Senses and Perception

Regular readers of the Fairy Tale Dimension blog are used to exploring a dimension that is not ours, but is just as real. Just by entertaining the idea that this dimension could exist we widen our awareness. Today I go one step further and invite you to accompany me into the world of perception and the role our senses play in our changing reality.

Displacing stuff

You have probably searched in vain for keys or a document. Sometimes it takes a long time to find them or they reappear at unexpected places. In my household this happens a lot.

Here are some examples:

One pair of kitchen scissors has disappeared twice in 6 years: One time for 2 years and one time for half a year only to be rediscovered somewhere strange.

On a holiday a few years back our hairbrush vanished from my backpack. We searched everywhere and concluded that it was lost. We continued the trip and in the evening my daughter found it in the same backpack we had emptied before. This is when I started to think that there was more to these displacements.

I was not amused when my driver´s licence went missing and I applied for a replacement document. A few months later the old one reappeared at an unlikely place.

An octogenarian friend of mine displaced one shoe a few weeks ago and had help searching only to find it at an obvious place days later. This was the first time something like this had happened to her.

I tried to explain that this could happen more often in the future and that it does not mean that she was developing dementia.

She said that she understood my words but did not get the concept. It was too strange for her. I guess you have to experience this more often. How about you? Have you had experiences with things mysteriously disappearing and reappearing? Please share in the comments!

 

IMG_20180720_102406

Where does our stuff go?

I don´t know. It definitely is not here in any more. If I search with other people, to get a more objective picture, and still cannot find it, it definitely is not part of our reality any more. Perhaps we have finally found an explanation for the heaps of solitary socks in our drawers?

The most efficient way to handle these occurrences is to keep calm, order your stuff back and then forget about it. Frantic searching won´t help. Most things will reappear sooner or later.

What is happening?

We are showing ourselves that our reality is not fixed and that we are able to manipulate it in more ways than we think possible. I know that I am not always aware of what I am doing energetically and then these displacements happen more often.

Reality and perception

We are firmly rooted in our reality and that is a good thing. We have basic agreements with each other on what our world looks like. The house we live in and the streets we walk every day stay the same because of these agreements.

Our brain is used to tune out things it deems irrelevant. Thus we thankfully have a permanent filter that makes us more efficient because we can concentrate better on the matters at hand.

Sometimes this filter has holes. People who suffer from dementia lose their firm roots in our collective reality and let go of our general agreements. This is why they see things that don´t belong here. A friend of my mother-in-law who has Alzheimer´s told me that she does not share the strange things that she sees any more because people think that she is crazy.

For example she suddenly sees a pig running across the street. This pig is very real for her. We don´t see it because it does not belong in our reality. It could be part of an alternative reality or another dimension.

This has interesting consequences: If aliens would land in my backyard right now I would probably not see them because my brain would tune them out!

The Invisible Gorilla

In their book The Invisible Gorilla Christopher Shabris and Daniel Simmons have investigated our perception. You can test how much you tune out automatically on their website.

This helps me to understand why each person in a group of people has a different account of a situation the whole group was in. It shows that perception is always depending on the individual.

Our world is changing

Perhaps you have heard that a shift in consciousness is occurring at the moment. All of us agreed on some level that we want to become more aware. This causes a thinning of the veils between alternative realities and dimensions and it gets easier for us to perceive things that don´t belong here. So when you see something strange that you cannot easily explain, just play with the idea that it could be a spill over from somewhere else and you are not getting crazy. Here are some examples from my life:

Hearing an animal that is not there

My daughter was hearing a purring at night without our two cats being anywhere near her room. The other day my husband heard it, too which helped my daughter a lot who was thinking that she might have been hallucinating. They both heard something that is not manifest in this reality. Perhaps she will meet this cat later in her life and recognise its purring.

Elves from the fairy tale dimension

Last year when we visited Iceland one of my daughters managed to lose two earphones on two consecutive days. She swore that she put them safely in her backpack.

Turns out that I am not the only one in my family who has a close connection to elves.  My daughter has another focus of consciousness as a princess in one of the elf fairy tale countries. When we were in West-Iceland, the area where I also met my first elves, somebody recognised her. Two elves accompanied her for the rest of the journey. Since these creatures love to play with strings, marbles and shiny stuff they took the two sets of earphones back to their dimension. At home a few weeks later we found one pair of them in her room. The other never reappeared.

Ever since this trip elves have inhabited her room, which has mutated into a giant playground for them. Stuff they can play with is lying around everywhere.

We found out that they love dripping water when we discovered a wet spot on her floor. The elves had moved a loose panel on our roof so that water could enter through the ceiling when it rained.

We told them that water would destroy our house and that we preferred our home unharmed and fixed the panel. So far no more water has been diverted into her room.

We can´t see our live-in elves. Sometimes we hear them rummaging or make out some movement in our peripheral vision. Five years ago we probably would not have been able to be aware of any of this.

You can read more about elves in Iceland in this blog article.

Animals don´t distinguish between manifest and not manifest energies like we do. If you see your pet reacting to something that you cannot see, this means that there is something:

The other day our cat suddenly hissed at something invisible beside my daughter on the sofa. I switched to my energy detection mode and could make out a little shape beside her, probably one of her elves. The cat probably wanted to protect her.

How to adjust to these interesting times

I have shared here some of my experiences that show that we disappear stuff regularly and that our perception is changing.  Our senses seem to be letting through more information and thus we are able to perceive more than we used to. This can be both unnerving and exciting. My family is pretty open for these occurrences. We stopped to explain them away and laugh about them now.

To stay sane when experiencing something unusual  we need a firm stand in our reality. We have to be aware and know ourselves as well as possible to stay grounded. Only then we are able to identify safely that something does not belong here without scaring ourselves. Thus we can widen our awareness and get used to the thinning of the veils between different realities.

A great opportunity to learn this is to make a game out of it. We do this in my facebook group The Fairy Tale Dimension  where we share our fairy tale moments and possible bleed-throughs from the fairy tale dimension.

Humour is a very efficient way to cope with these changes. It is a good thing that I don´t take myself and my senses too seriously any more.

How our world is changing – without the metaphysical focus of this article – is very well explained in this interview of Charles Eisenstein: a you-tube video about Living the Change.

The Discworld Dimension

Sometimes I invite you to take a peek with me at other dimensions. There are millions and millions of dimensions out there created by consciousness to explore life.

There are very small dimensions like the Contemplative Dimension. There are vast dimensions like ours : I cannot grasp the myriad of galaxies and suns our universe  consists of.

The Fairy Tale Dimension this blog is about is a big giant plane. On this plane there are hundreds of thousands of different fairy tale countries.

There are many more dimensions where magic plays a big role and you can also meet humans: The Harry Potter Dimension is one of those. The Discworld Dimension we are visiting today is another one.

Terry Pratchett wrote 41 novels about it. His first book is called The Colour of Magic and it was published in 1983. You can see its cover in the the image below courtesy of wikipedia.  Sadly Pratchett died in 2015 at the age of 66 of early onset Alzheimer.

The_Colour_of_Magic_(cover_art)(1)

The Discworld

is formed like a round plate (See featured image). A giant turtle transports it through space. It carries four big elephants that share the weight of this world. A small sun is circling it.

In the middle of the disc it is very cold and there are 10 miles high mountains. Near the rim it is much warmer. There is an ocean and its waters flow into space in a giant waterfall.

The circumference of the discworld is 30,00 miles: It is not small. There is a net around 10,000 miles of the rim that salvages people, boats and goods. Every few miles a sentry alerts his superiors to findings by a complicated communication system made of strings and bells.

The discworld dimension is chaotic. There are gods who have fun playing chess games with their people and don´t seem to care one bit what is going on. They are hedonistic, fight against each other and like to play pranks. They remind me of the sagas of the Greek gods.

The inhabitants of the discworld are pictured as greedy, dishonest and egotistic creatures. In other words: They are interesting. They live in a pre-industrial world with a feudal governing system. Kings and gentry rule and wizards play an important role.

Magic on the Discworld

Magic in the beginning of the discworld was so powerful that humans and gods threatened to destroy everything in their war for power. The creators, whoever they were, intervened and reduced the magic which proved difficult. In the discworld magic behaves much like radioactive waste does here: You cannot get rid of it easily and it takes a long time to cease working.

Pratchett describes many interesting adventures involving magic. Often things turn out differently than intended.

Only wizards can see the aura of magic things and places. Magic matter is made of the magic element Octarin.

All kinds of inanimate objects can become conscious in this world: Swords, luggage and household items for example. Some magic books have to be tethered so they don´t fly away when they get scared.

Famous is the suitcase in the first two books made of rare magic pearwood that walks on hundreds of tiny legs and can find his owner everywhere. It does eat adversaries while cleaning and folding dirty laundry at the same time. Wouldn´t you want to have one of those?

The Magic University

Magic is in the hands of wizards and witches. The wizards are taught at the Unseen University, a wizard school. There are some books featuring this school. Pratchett describes his wizards often as chaotic dilettantes creating havoc every chance they get.

Magic has many adverse side effects on the Discworld. This is why students of magic regularly get mad. Doing magic can attract dangerous beings from another realm who are keen to take over bodies.

This reminds me of the magic school  in the Fairy Tale Dimension that you can also only find when you are meant to find it. There are rooms for students for training magic without harming themselves and others. In the Fairy Tale dimension the gender is not an issue though. Everybody who wants to can do magic.

Witches

Witches are women and live mainly in rural areas. They teach girls to become herbalists and wise women. Witches on the Disc prefer not to use magic. They find simple and cunningly applied psychology far more effective.

In the third book Equal Rites there is a girl who is both a witch and a wizard, which results in all kinds of problems: Pratchett makes great fun of gender issues here.

The Grim Reaper

One of my favourite characters is Death. He appears in almost every book. He even stars in two books: In the 5th book Mort and the 11th Reaper Man. He looks like a skeleton in a black robe who rides a pale horse called Binky. His dialogue is always written in small caps to illustrate the fact that he does not communicate by vocal cords.

Over millennia in the role, Death has developed a fascination with the people, even going so far as to create a house for himself in a personal dimension. He does not seem to have the chance to retire like in the Fairy Tale Dimension.

Death escorts people out of the dimension just like in the Fairy Tale Dimension. I love the book Reaper Man where death quits his job and starts to work as a farmer. This causes a great backlog of wizards waiting for Death walking around as ghosts and corpses creating mayhem. Why? Because only Death can escort wizards out of the dimension not his helpers.

Wizards get to be much older than the average citizen. To move up in the hierarchy it is therefore customary to kill one´s predecessor. Everything becomes even more chaotic than usual because of Death´s disappearance. A desperate search for Death sets in until he is finally persuaded to take back his job.

In the Fairy Tale Dimension you make a conscious appointment with the Grim Reaper yourself. On the Disc fate or the gods make that appointment for you. This is why people try to trick death and sometimes get away with it and living on. This often leaves Death annoyed and angry.

In the Fairy Tale Dimension you only play with Death when it is part of a fairy tale. When you change your mind about leaving you just tell him.

Inhabitants of the Discworld

A multitude of beings live on the Disc: Trolls, elves, wizards, animals and humans. Trolls are made of rock and when they die they disintegrate and turn into pebbles. There are many animals we are familiar with: Predators like wolves, bears and eagles, insects and small mammals. The difference is that magic gives some of them consciousness and creates endless opportunities for stories.

Living in trees are dryads who have earth magic and share the fate of their trees. They have a unique connection to their environment.

 

We can broaden our experience by tapping into other dimensions

I enjoy the playfulness that is expressed in Pratchett´s books and I am very grateful to him for taking us along on his journey into this cool dimension.

Remember, other dimensions are just as real as ours. They are not real for us because we are thankfully rooted deeply in ours. But we can use our vast consciousness to tap into other realities and thus broaden our horizons.

Behind the Scenes of Sleeping Beauty

I was surprised to find out that the fairy tale I grew up with does have another chapter that was totally new to me.

The earliest known versions of Sleeping Beauty are found in the 14th century in the long Arthurian book Perceforest. I grew up with the Grimm´s version which is based on Perrault 1628-1703 and is the most popular today.

(Charles Perrault was one oft he first Europeans to put together popular fairy tales and he inspired many for example the Grimm brothers who lived in the middle of the 19th century. )

The story of Sleeping Beauty I am familiar with

At the christening of a king and queen’s long-wished-for child, seven good fairies are invited to be godmothers to the infant Princess. The fairies attend the banquet at the palace. Each fairy is presented with a golden plate and drinking cups adorned with jewels. Soon after, an old fairy enters the palace and is seated with a plate of fine china and a crystal drinking glass. This old fairy was overlooked because she has been within a tower for many years and everyone had believed her to be deceased. Six of the other seven fairies offer their gifts of beauty, wit, grace, dance, song, and goodness to the infant princess. The old fairy is very angry about having been forgotten, and as her gift, enchants the infant Princess so that she will one day prick her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel and die. The seventh fairy, who hasn’t yet given her gift, attempts to reverse the evil fairy’s curse. However, she can only do so partially. Instead of dying, the Princess will fall into a deep sleep for 100 years and be awakened by a kiss from a king’s son.

The King orders every spindle and spinning wheel in the kingdom to be destroyed, to try to save his daughter from the terrible curse. Fifteen or sixteen years pass and one day, when the king and queen are away, the Princess wanders through the palace rooms and comes upon an old woman, spinning with her spindle. The princess, who has never seen anyone spin before, asks the old woman if she can try the spinning wheel. The curse is fulfilled as the princess pricks her finger on the spindle and instantly falls into a deep sleep. The king has the Princess carried to the finest room in the palace and placed upon a bed of gold and silver embroidered fabric. The king and queen kiss their daughter goodbye and depart, proclaiming the entrance to be forbidden. The good fairy who altered the evil prophecy is summoned. Having great powers of foresight, the fairy sees that the Princess will awaken to distress when she finds herself alone, so the fairy puts everyone in the castle to sleep. The fairy also summons a forest of trees, brambles and thorns that spring up around the castle, shielding it from the outside world.

Alexander Zick (1845-1907)-Dornröschen

A hundred years pass and a Prince finds the hidden castle during a hunting expedition. An old man recounts the story: Within the castle lies a beautiful Princess who is doomed to sleep for a hundred years until a king’s son comes and awakens her. The prince then braves the brambles and thorns and enters the castle. He passes the sleeping castle folk and reaches the chamber where the Princess lies asleep on the bed. Struck by the radiant beauty before him, he falls on his knees before her. The enchantment comes to an end by a kiss and the princess awakens and converses with the prince for a long time. Meanwhile, the rest of the castle awakens and go about their business. The Prince and Princess are married by the chaplain.

Disney and all other popular narratives end with this scene.

The part of Sleeping Beauty that was new to me

After the secret wedding the Princess bears two children, Aurore (Dawn) and Jour (Day), unbeknown to his mother, who is of an ogre lineage. When the time comes for the Prince to ascend the throne, he brings his wife and children.

The Ogress Queen Mother sends the young Queen and the children to a house secluded in the woods and directs her cook to prepare the boy for dinner. The kind-hearted cook substitutes a lamb for the boy, which satisfies the Queen Mother. She then demands the girl and the cook this time substitutes a young goat, which also satisfies the Queen Mother. When the Ogress demands that he serve up the young Queen, the latter offers to slit her throat so that she may join the children that she imagines are dead. While the Queen Mother is satisfied with a hind in place of the young Queen, there is a tearful secret reunion of the Queen and her children. However, the Queen Mother soon discovers the cook’s trick and she prepares a tub in the courtyard filled with vipers and other noxious creatures. The King returns and the Ogress, her true nature having been exposed, throws herself into the tub and is fully consumed. The King, young Queen, and children then live happily ever after.

(from Wikipedia)

There are many modern adaptions of the Grimm story: movies, ballets and operas:

 

Here are two contemporary examples:

1. The animated movies featuring Shrek by Dreamworks are very funny: They play with appearances of the protagonists of this Sleeping Beauty story. An ogre rescues Princess Fiona who turns out to be an ogre herself.

2. The book Reckless The Petrified Flesh

is the first of a three-piece-series called Mirrorworld by Cornelia Funke. She is a multiple award-winning German illustrator and storyteller, who writes fantasy.
Ever since Jacob Reckless was a child, he has been escaping to a hidden world through a mirror that is a portal in his father’s abandoned study.

In these books Funke mixes up all kinds of fairy tales. People go on quests and discover treasure. What intrigued me was that the protagonist discovered a Sleeping Beauty who had died sleeping in her castle. Nobody had managed to save her in time. She had lain in her perpetual sleep for hundreds of years while hundreds of potential saviours were killed. Perhaps the good fairy´s magic was sloppy?

Behind the Scenes information on Sleeping Beauty

Discovering the last part of Sleeping Beauty I now understand why this fairy tale is popular in the Fairy Tale Dimension. The sleeping part is boring because it only offers little adventure. The fairies can bring some variety with all kinds of wishes: flying, dancing, magic. The really interesting play starts with the evil mother-in-law trying to eat her son´s family.

Death is not final in the Fairy Tale Dimension

To end your stay in the Fairy Tale Dimension you have to engage the Grim Reaper to escort you out. Inside of the dimension you can die as many times as you want only to reappear in an instant.

This explains why you will find people getting cooked in pots all the time reappearing instantly. You can picture this like wild hot tub parties. Giants even host big cooking events in swimming pool-sized pots.

In the Fairy Tale Dimension you can also jump a hundred times off a steep cliff and be smashed to bits and just stand up the next moment all healthy and restored ready for another round.

There is no pain

I have been cooked myself plenty of times while visiting the Fairy Tale Dimension with friends in dreams and we laughed our heads off while in the pots. We did not feel any pain. In our reality being cooked is cruel. In their reality it is not. This is why fairy tales often seem so cruel to us.

Flexibility

This makes people in the Fairy Tale Dimension very flexible. Something that we can profit from when we visit. There are not many rules scientific or otherwise and the use of magic enables even a bigger variety of outcomes of any fairy tale.

In Sleeping Beauty sometimes the evil stepmother gets to eat her prey and sometimes she is cooked herself.

The part of the evil stepmothers is a very popular character.

Wolves from Little Red Riding Hood like to play it as well as other animals, monsters, humans or trees.

Sleeping beauty is not always an innocent naïve creature.

I especially enjoy the Ninja version of Sleeping Beauty. She is a martial arts expert and enjoys fighting very much. The prince has to be her equal in battle to be accepted as a partner. Imagine the princess being woken up and doing Taekwondo moves! She can definitely take care of herself. This makes her a great adversary for her mother in law, too.

The children

Can play a very important role in the story and many young ones like to take part in the play rescuing their parents or plotting with their evil grandmother. There is an endless possibility of outcomes.

Were you aware of the evil mother-in-law ending of Sleeping Beauty and how do you like this end?

Behind the Scenes of King Arthur

1. Arthur Pendragon

was a legendary British leader, who led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the late 5th and early 6th centuries. Arthur’s story is fascinating; full of folklore and literary invention. The historical evidence that he existed is so sparse that modern historians seriously doubt his existence.

Historical background

Britain was governed by the Roman Empire from 43 to 410 AD. The Romans ruled over almost all of England and Wales. After they left the situation got very unstable. This is why the Saxons were invited to assist in fighting the Picts and the Irish. These new arrivals started a series of wars that eventually led to the Saxon occupation of Britain in 600.

Everybody who is reading this has some picture of King Arthur in his head. If you want more details of the story, please consult the story of King Arthur in Wikipedia:

Although the themes, events and characters of the Arthurian legend vary, Geoffrey’s version of events often served as the starting point for later stories. Geoffrey depicted Arthur as a king of Britain who defeated the Saxons and established a vast empire. Many elements and incidents that are now an integral part of the Arthurian story appear in Geoffrey’s Historia, including Arthur’s father Uther Pendragon, the wizard Merlin, Arthur’s wife Guinevere, the sword Excalibur, Arthur’s conception at Tintagel, his battle against Mordred and final rest in Avalon.

The 12th-century French writer Chrétien de Troyes added Lancelot and the Holy Grail to the story. He began the genre of Arthurian romance that became a significant strand of medieval literature. In these French stories, the narrative focus often shifts from King Arthur himself to other characters, such as various Knights of the Round Table.

From the 12th to the early 19th century there was a break in King Arthur´s popularity.

Many books and stories exist about King Arthur and his reign. Tennyson started the revival with Idylls of the King. He reworked the narrative of Arthur’s life for the Victorian era. His book was published in 1859 and sold 10,000 copies within the first week: Arthur was depicted as a symbol of ideal manhood who ultimately failed, because of human weakness.

Tennyson’s works generated much interest in the legends of Arthur. It also invited a large number of imitators:

In the US Sidney Lanier’s The Boy´s King Arthur was very popular and an inspiration for Mark Twain´s satire: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur´s Court (1889).

Arthur´s story is still constantly reworked to fit modern times to include more equality and democracy. I enjoyed Marion Zimmer Bradley´s version: The mists of Avalon (1982) as a teenager.

There have been comic strips, films and plays. Some of you may know the Arthurian spoof Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975).

Presently you can see on Netflix a series of a young Arthur called Merlin and a film called King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. In both magic has an important role. Arthur either fights outright against magic or uses it grudgingly and only in dire straits.

What all stories have in common

The battle is always good against bad. Arthur has to fight against evil magic and treason.

Wizards and their magic are not part of ordinary life in most Arthurian stories. They only exist on the fringe of society. This is because magic belongs in the Fairy Tale Dimension, of course.

2. Behind the scenes information on King Arthur

It is not relevant whether Arthur is a true historical figure or not. I know that he and his adventures are very real in the Fairy Tale Dimension:

Arthur and his knights live in a very elaborate fairy tale country that supports events and adventures in a setting that we would term the Dark Ages (476 – 800).

The landscape is divers

All kinds of terrain are negotiated in the adventures here. You can find high mountains, deep caves, lakes, rivers and the sea, islands, giant trees and dangerous bridges.

bodium-platinumportfolio

Dwellings in King Arthur´s fairy tale

People live in castles and in villages. You can find more than one Camelot: Ranging from giant citadels with intricate artwork and fine masonry to crude castles surrounded by moats and sporting drawbridges. Some have a small town nearby and others stand solitary on the tip of a mountain.

Physical fighting

The people in this country fight against evil. There are swords and daggers, horses and dragons. A lot of energy is used to go on quests to obtain magic objects and slay evil monsters.

You don´t need much intellect for fighting so there are plenty of dumb brave knights.

Battle of the minds

But besides the physical fights there is also a battle of minds. In this fairy tale country  the pros and cons of magic are debated. Great speech-battles about its values and virtues are held that are highly popular. A lot of spectators attend these events.

There are also battles where riddles have to be solved: A kind of Fairy Tale Dimension Quiz Show. Prominent stars of these contests are very much in demand as advisors.

Dragons and other magic creatures

A multitude of magical creatures play on the good as well as on the evil side. Including cat-monsters, boars, griffins and giants. Anything you can imagine and much more.

Do you remember Flitz? In October 2017 I introduced the small dragon Flitz, who is part of the communication and postal service in the Fairy Tale Dimension and belongs to a group of secret agents who work as messengers on dangerous missions.

creature dragon-Activedia

Flitz´ Island of the Dragons

Flitz comes from a fairy tale country that supplies the FTD with fire spitting dragons. When a fairy tale country needs a dragon to watch over a treasure, to abduct virgins or as an adversary for brave knights they send an invitation and whoever wants the job leaves the island. Dragons can be wise consultants as well as ferocious fighters spitting fire that grills everybody in reach.

Society

Many different kinds of people live there. I have met a surprising number of children. This is astonishing because most people arrive in the Fairy Tale Dimension as adults. The GrImporter´s job is to let you in and as an adult it is easier to fit right in.

My explanation is that a lot of inhabitants of our dimension have been fascinated by the Arthurian tales in their childhood and therefore want to be able to experience this as a youngster. Popular roles for children are pages and servants. They have their eyes and ears everywhere and accompany adults on quests as shield bearers or squires. Of course  some stories are played exclusively by children.

Culture

People very much appreciate the diversity and many options the country offers. It is one of the most complex and intricate countries. Inhabitants can wallow in romance for example. There is much drinking, dancing and singing. Minnesingers offer their songs and sell magic poems that promise to induce love.

The inhabitants of the Fairy Tale Dimension don´t have a concept of going on holidays. But for the ones that are interested in visiting other fairy tale countries the country of King Arthur is on top of their list. There is so much to see and take part in.

The Arthurs

There are all kinds of Arthurs and because gender equality is not an issue, there are also female Arthurs, dwarf Arthurs and giant Arthurs and tree Arthurs.

Historically metal armour was only worn from the 10th century on. That is why King Arthur and his men wear mostly leather and wool outfits. There are some players though, who don´t care about historical correctness and wear metal armour anyway, just because it is cool.

Fighting dirty

People love to use all kinds of tricks to win. This is very much encouraged because it is the natural way in the Fairy Tale Dimension. The most cunning person will be the star everybody will tell tales about.

The Merlins

In the Arthurian legends Merlin is a symbol for magic. You can find a lot of wizards in this country taking part in the action.

Some of them attend the magic school that is hidden at a secret place. Because there are many possibilities to test what they have learned almost every magician likes to spend some time in this country to hone his skills. It is very good for their career to have this experience in their CVs.

excalibur-videorevivejpg

The sword Excalibur

Merlin is responsible for forging the magic sword Excalibur. It is the symbol of power and entitles the bearer to inherit the throne. In the legend Arthur proved his right to the British throne by pulling this sword from an anvil sitting atop a stone.

Besides a multitude of objects this sword is the most important magical object in the fairy tale country. There is one sword for each Arthur. The magician who is Merlin decides who is worthy of becoming the king.

So as an aspiring king or queen you better are on good terms with the magician in power and motivate him to make the magic of the sword available to you.

How do you like King Arthur´s country?

It sounds like a great way to spend time there to make up new versions of Arthur´s story. What is your favourite role? I want to be a dragon and a magician.

Whether you like adventures and fighting or are into magic and strategy. There is something for everybody.
