Imbolc – Faery

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

living environment.

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

your athame.

 

Gardening With Flower Essences

Gardening is a sure way to connect with the flower faeries.

We are fortunate to live on a planet with thousands of flowers.

Each flower has a faery connected with it, and also has an outward

sign or signature that shows its true nature and specific use.

For example, the milky juice of milkweed is its signature, so the

plant is used to ensure the flow of milk in nursing mothers. One

way to connect with the flower faeries is to take Bach flower

essences just before you go outside to garden. Flower essences are

powerful and effective potions for communing with the faeries.

Bach flower essences.

Your garden or yard.

Your Faery Magick journal and pen.

 

  1. Go outside and begin walking around your yard. What

are the first three living flowers you notice? Make a mental

note of them.

 

  1. Now, select one of the three flowers. Go to a health food

store or the Internet, and purchase the Bach flower essence that

corresponds to the flower. If you can’t find a matching essence,

then select one of the other flowers of the original three.

 

  1. Go outside in the morning or early afternoon with the

Bach flower essence and your journal and pen, and sit or stand

next to the corresponding flower. Take the essence (Following

the container directions, put a few drops under your tongue).

 

  1. Now, focus your awareness on the flower. Place your

hands on the flower, and take a deep and complete breath

in and out. Feel the qualities of the flower and its fae. Feel

the flower’s essence in your heart. Think about how you and

the flower faery are alike, and become one with the essence

of the flower. Speak to the flower faery within the flower.

Ask the fae how you can make your home safe, happy,

healthy, and prosperous. Make a note of the date, and then

jot down the answers you receive in your journal. Do this

for at least 30 minutes.

 

  1. Repeat this process for at least 28 days (an entire

moon cycle), for the best results. This will match your personal

energies to the faery energies. By aligning your energies,

it is much easier to see, sense, and communicate with

the flower faeries.

 

Faery Amulet

Eggs are often used as protective home amulets. Make this

protective home amulet just before or on a full moon, or on

the Spring Equinox, to give it the most faery power. Again, this

spell is one you can enjoy with your children and friends.

An egg.

A needle.

Fresh flowers.

1 tsp. dried mint.

1 tsp. dried cinnamon.

1 tsp. caraway seeds.

A small funnel.

A large gold or silver star sticker.

 

  1. Gather everything you will need together and go

outside. Draw a Faery Ring and Faery Magick Circle. Lay

the fresh flowers clockwise around the ring, and then call in

the faery guardians.

 

  1. Sit inside the Circle. Use the needle to make a small

hole in the egg. Then use the needle to make the hole big

enough to put the end of the small funnel into it. Take

your time when doing this. It’s a little tricky, so you may

have to use more than one egg to perfect your technique.

Drain the egg into the earth, under a flower bush, tree, or

other plant. As you do this, say:

“I offer this to the helpful and protective faeries

Of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Blessed be!”

 

  1. Now, put the funnel up to the opening and fill the

egg with the dried herbs and seeds. As you do this, chant:

“Faeries of mint, cinnamon, and caraway,

Fill this amulet with your divine power today.”

 

  1. Apply the large star sticker to the opening to close it.

After you do this, gently hold the egg in your power hand,

and say:

“May this divine faery amulet

Protect my home from harm.

By the helpful fae, blessed be!”

 

  1. When you are finished, thank the helpful faeries, bid

farewell to the guardians, and pull up the Circle and erase

your Ring.

 

  1. Put the faery amulet on your Faery Magick altar.

Empower it every full moon by gently holding it in your

power hand, and repeating:

“May this divine faery amulet

Protect my home from harm.

By the helpful fae, blessed be!”

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!

Blessed be!”

Now clap your hands three times. It is done.
