Depending on where you live in the world, there are fairy and folk tales that offer moral lessons, warnings against evil or darkness. There are also tales that invite us to think more creatively about our circumstances, and to not accept what the society or group thought would have us believe.
Many of these tales involve a young hero who must do a challenging task. Our hero usually meets a wise person, a beggar, a witch or an elemental, who gives them gifts with magic properties, or who advises them how to communicate with the Universe.
For example, if the hero is charged to find a precious ring that has been thrown into a field of flowers, the her or she simply speaks to the ants of the field, and they quickly find the ring. Or, if the hero is charged to clean a filthy hut, the birds of the air quickly come and do the task.
What we are taught then, is two stories: the first story, which that each hero is on a quest; each hero must walk a path. But under this is the second story: the recognition of nature as an ally, nature as magic, the world as a Universe that is something that we are not apart from. This second story teaches us that there are many beings that we can communicate with directly, both on this plane, and in the plane of multi-dimension, the etheric realms.
Of course, there's nothing fantastic tale about this! Living in multi-dimension is as real as death and taxes. It is all simply a matter of opening your mind, and awakening to this reality.
