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!”

 

Consecrating Your Faery Magick Tools

To consecrate means to make sacred and divine. By consecrating

your tools, you imbue them with divine blessings

and power. Consecrate your Faery Magick tools outdoors (if

possible) at dawn, noon, twilight, or midnight. I have found

that dawn and twilight work best for this purpose because

these are the times when I usually encounter faeries.

 

Before consecrating your tools, smudge them with cedar

and sage smudge to get rid of any unwanted energies. Then,

consecrate each tool individually by blessing it with the Elements

of Earth (soil), Air (incense), Fire (flame), Water

(water), and Spirit (scented oil) in that order. Put the Elements

on the tool. For example, rub clean soil on your cup,

pass it through the incense smoke, the flame of the candle

(swiftly), dip it in or sprinkle it with water, and then rub it

three times with scented oil. As you apply each Elemental

representation, say:

 

“With this Element,

I consecrate this tool to the helpful faeries.

So be it! Blessed be!”

 

Next, present the tool to the directions of North, East,

South, West, and center, in that order. Now face the altar,

and say:

“I charge this tool by the Ancient Ones,

By the divine powers and blessings of the helpful faeries,

By the powers of the sun, moon, planets, and stars,

By the powers of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit

I consecrate this magickal tool.

May it serve me well.

So be it! Blessed be!”

 

Now hold the tool in your hand and imagine the helpful

faeries. Merge with the faery energy and use your deep

breathing and intention to move that image and power into

the tool. Your Faery Magick tool is now ready to use.

 

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.

 

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.
