To follow-up on my recent post where I mentioned my fairy friend, Lisette, I have to say that the girl is aggressive for being a tiny being! Since the “Hi!” in my left ear days ago (she sits on my left shoulder and tickles my left arm and pulls on my ear) I have had Facebook friends “coincidentally” post fairy garden posts. I didn’t even know my friend in Massachusetts had a fairy garden until she posted pictures of updates to it this past week! My Albuquerque friend, who I didn’t know was into my “woo-woo” stuff (know her through volunteering at Animal Humane New Mexico) posted pictures of her visit to this cool place in Hondo, NM: Hondo Iris Farm and Fairy Garden Then, walking to my car at my conservative workplace, I saw a bumper sticker that said, “Fairies are real!” Ummm…HELLO. Clearly, Lisette, who I found out about in 2002, is wanting attention at this time…and…quite frankly…I need her right now. And after reading about the meaning of the name Lisette, and what type of person someone is with that name, I adore her! She and I are VERY alike.
I got the urge to Google the meaning of the name Lisette today. Now, I could have sworn that when she introduced herself to me in 2002 she had pronounced her name LISS-ET, but according to what I see, she’s French (and I’m French obsessed…probably from a past life in Versailles) and her name should be pronounced LEE-ZET. I will have to ask her to clarify the pronunciation.

But the more important thing is the MEANING of her name. It means “Devoted to God”. That’s a tad too “coincidental” to be random coincidence! Here are some excerpts:
Numerology (from http://www.sheknows.com)
SoulUrge Number: 1
People with this name have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details.
Expression Number: 9
People with this name tend to be passionate, compassionate, intuitive, romantic, and to have magnetic personalities. They are usually humanitarian, broadminded and generous, and tend to follow professions where they can serve humanity. Because they are so affectionate and giving, they may be imposed on. They are romantic and easily fall in love, but may be easily hurt and are sometimes quick-tempered.
Who is she? (from www.first-names-meanings.com)
Lisette could appear more of a tough-cookie than she really is… But the truth is that she is incredibly sensitive and quite vulnerable, all things considered. She often tends to become withdrawn in the face of hostility, preferring to avoid confrontation. However, she is nevertheless a courageous woman who is proud and determined, loathes injustice, flattery and deceit, and is more than capable of leading others and assuming responsibility; she is capable of great selflessness for a cause that touches her heart. An innovative spirit who needs to be able to live her own experiences, she is quite a complex character who can be egocentric, authoritarian and demanding at times – particularly if she was born on a 1st, 10th, 19th, 28th, or if she has a life Path Number of 1; whilst at other times, she can also be very altruistic and idealistic, especially if she was born on a 9th, 18th, 27th, or if she has a life Path Number 9. As a child, Lisette is well-behaved, disciplined and reserved and autonomous, so she makes a wonderful big sister who is quite capable of standing in for her parents if the need arises. It is nonetheless important to be careful not to take advantage of her kind and helpful nature. She would benefit from participating in activities outside the family home as this will enable her to strike the right balance in her relationship with other people and her environment.
What does she like?
An ambitious lady, Lisette wants to win in life, to lead others and draw attention to herself. She craves recognition and adulation and sees the world as a stage on which she loves to perform… Both idealistic and materialistic at the same time, she enjoys a high standard of living and appreciates the comfort that money can provide. When it comes to relationships, she is demanding and intends to be the one who wears the trousers! She is a sensual woman, though uncompromising and jealous; and while she is faithful, loyal and frank, she expects the same in return. But underneath her abrupt, harsh manner she is in fact hiding an enormous, generous heart and very sentimental nature.
What does she do?
Lisette is likely to be attracted to the social fields (medicine, justice, law), particularly if she was born on a 9th, 18th, 27th, or if she has a life Path Number of 9; otherwise she could be tempted by one of the liberal professions or a career in banking, management, finance, show business or broadcasting.
I think it’s time I got to know Lisette better, and learn to work with her.
Fairies are real.
Update 6/22/2018: While at a party on the 20th, someone told me that security cameras near the wellness center in Pojoaque (where I live) caught 2 fairies on camera one night! I guess this happened recently and the images were undeniable. Very cool!
