CREATING A FAERY RING
To attract faeries and other magickal beings to your door,
you can create your own version of a Faery Ring by drawing a
circle in the dirt where you want your Ring to be. The circle
can be as big (a large meadow) or small (a flowerpot) as you
want or have space for, depending on your needs and
After you have drawn out the Ring, gather together
enough stones to line the parameter of your magickal Faery
Ring. One by one, set the stones on the outline of the Ring so
they all touch together. Take your time when doing this,
fitting the stones together while thinking about the ring you
are creating and its purpose.
Once you are done outlining the circular ring with stones,
sit or stand back for a few minutes. Now in your mind’s
eye, imagine a thread of bright white light energetically
connecting the stones together. Imagine light weaving the
stones together in a clockwise motion, around and around
the circle at least seven times.
As a finishing touch, plant flowers and herbs that attract
the faeries in and around the Ring. Select your favorites
and the faeries will be pleased. Faeries and other helpful
magickal beings are attracted to all beautiful things connected
with the living spirit of Nature.
Optimally, your Faery Ring should reflect the passing
of the seasons. For example, plant some narcissus, which
bloom in early spring, and perhaps some daffodils, tulips,
irises, all of which bloom shortly thereafter. Add a few
daisies or annuals, and a rose bush or three or seven (miniature
roses are great in Faery Ring flower pots). These plants
keep on blooming until autumn, and in some milder climates,
they bloom continuously. Be sure to snip all spent
blooms back, and water the plants regularly.
Creating a Faery Ring is one of the simple and enjoyable
ways in which you can get in touch with Nature, and
in turn, the magickal energy of the faery. The next section
further explores the ways in which you can work with
Nature to bring the energy of the faeries into your life in
order to do magick. Being magickal themselves, they bring a
potent power into your overall life patterns and your personal
goals, which define who and what you are and what
you like, dislike, dream about, value, do, and accomplish.
CREATING THE FAERY MAGIC CIRCLE
The Faery Magick Circle protects you from harmful
energies when doing magick. It acts as a vortex of light,
bridging the mortal and faery worlds. Each time you do
magick, you create the magick Circle. First, sprinkle water
from your cup clockwise all around the inside of the Faery
Ring to purify the area. Then hold your athame or wand
in your power hand with the point outward, face in the
direction North of your Faery Ring, and slowly spin in a
clockwise circle. As you do this imagine a blue-white light
shooting out of its tip. Trace a clockwise circle of light
with your athame over the Faery Ring you have created.
You are basically drawing a double circle. Next, face the
altar, and say:
“I consecrate this Circle of power
To the generous and helpful faeries
Of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
May they bless this circle with their presence.
So be it! Blessed be!”
CUTTING THE ENERGY DOOR
After you set the faery guardians in place, cut an
energetic doorway from which you can enter and exit the
Circle without disrupting its magickal energy. Traditionally this
is done just below the Eastern most point of your Circle, but for
practical purposes you can also cut the doorway at the actual
doorway in the room. Use your athame to cut the doorway by
tracing a doorway with it. Each time you exit and re-enter your
Circle, open and close the doorway with a sweeping motion of
Brownie Home Magick
Brownies are helpful faeries about 3 feet tall, with
brown faces and shaggy heads, usually dressed in brown.
They often adopt a household and come out at night, when
the household is asleep to help with chores of milking, shoemaking,
harvesting, threshing corn, sewing, shearing, running
errands, and cleaning. Brownies are always gone by the
first cock call. A brownie will often become personally attached
to one person in the family. Attract a helpful brownie
to your home by doing this work after dark on a new moon
for best results.
Your faery broom.
A bowl of milk.
A plate of sweet cakes with honey.
- Sweep your hearth clean using your Faery Broom.
- Then put the bowl of milk and plate of sweet cakes o n
or close to the hearth. Say:
“I offer these gifts to the helpful brownies.”
- Now go to sleep.
- In the morning, take the milk and cakes outside, and
return them to the Earth as an offering to the helpful
brownies. As you do this, repeat,
“I offer these gifts to the helpful brownies.”
- Repeat this spell once a month to bring the helpful,
protective powers of the brownies into your home.
Faery Broom Magick
Use your faery broom to sweep your hearth clean of both
debris and unwanted energies. To encourage faery visits and
their protection, you must leave your hearth well swept. This ties
into the idea that some of the helpful faeries are ancestral spirits
who are buried under the hearth, according to ancient custom.
Do this spell during a waning moon. Then use your faery broom
whenever you want to sweep negativity out and positivity into
A broom made of wood and broomstraw.
12-inch lengths of white, red, and black ribbon.
3 rosemary stalks (6 inches long).
3 lavender stalks (6 inches long).
3 sage stalks (6 inches long).
- Gather together the items you will need. Then draw a
Faery Ring around your hearth, draw a Magick Circle, and call
in the faery guardians. (Note: If you don’t have a hearth, use
your altar area).
- Braid the three ribbons together, and then knot them
on each end. As you do this, chant:
“One, two, three, bring helpful fae energy to me.”
- Use the braided ribbon to tie the lengths of rosemary,
lavender, and sage around the broom at the top of the
broomstraws. As you do this, call the fae who work with
rosemary, lavender, and sage to lend their spiritual energy
toward protecting your home from harm and unwanted
“Fae of rosemary, I ask for your protection and blessings.
Fae of lavender, I ask for your protection and blessings.
Fae of sage, I ask for your protection and blessings.”
- Now, think of a name for your Faery Broom. This
gives it more power. Use cedar oil to trace the broom’s name
on its handle with letters, runes, or other magickal symbols.
Do this three times. Each time you trace the name, say:
“I consecrate this broom (say the broom’s name)
To the helpful and protective faeries.
So be it! Blessed be!”
- Next, stand in the center of your hearth (or in the
center of your Faery Magick Circle if you don’t have a
hearth). Move clockwise (sunwise), us ing your faery
broom to sweep from the center outward. This means you
will be sweeping in a complete circle, from the center outward.
With each sweeping motion, imagine the area being
cleansed of all unwanted energies. Say:
“Blessed and divine Faery Broom,
Sweep out harm, sweep out doom,
Sweep away evil from this hearth and room.”
- Now, stand in the middle of your hearth area, and
begin sweeping in positive protective, energy. As you do, say:
“Blessed and divine Faery broom,
Sweep in love, sweep in boons,
Sweep joy into this hearth and room.”
Rest your faery broom on the left (Goddess) side of
your hearth or altar when you aren’t using it. Stand the
broom on its handle with the broomstraws up to invite the
helpful faeries into your hearth and home.
PULLING UP THE FAERY MAGICK CIRCLE AND RING
Once you have bidden farewell to the faery guardians,
it is time to pull up the magick Circle and Faery Ring. Do
so by holding your athame or wand in your power hand,
face North, and slowly turn in a counterclockwise circle. As
you do this, imagine the blue-white light of the Circle being
drawn back up into your athame or wand. Then scatter the
flowers in the ring to and fro, and erase the mark of the
ring with your shoe, foot, or besom. Do this in a counterclockwise
motion. Lastly, ring the bell once, and say:
“The Circle is open, but ever unbroken.
May peace and love fill our hearts.
Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again!
Now clap your hands three times. It is done.
