Dusk

At a time that is not a time,
in a place that is not a place,
on a day that is not a day...

Alice photo taken by Linda. Mushrooms are magical, so are sisters!
I call this mushroom "Alice" found on an Autumn trip to the woods of central Maine, when I bent down to touch this mushroom, I heard a tiny "bell" tinkle and saw something "white" scatter across the forest floor *

Greetings from the Blu Wizard

A Recipe to See the Fae

On a Dawn morn or dusk eve, find a special bottle, a pretty one the Fae would like that is.
And pour into it
1 cup gathered spring or rain water
1 teaspoon of Pink Rose petals
1/2 teaspoon Lavender flowers
Add 3 Quartz crystals
Add 3 Amethyst Chips
1 pinch of Faery sugar (see recipe below)
Nine inch piece of pink ribbon

Now hide this away in a dark cool place for three days. On the third day, again at dawn or dusk, in a place you think you might spot the Fae, like an Oak tree, backyard or mushroom patch in the forest. Even a potted plant, herb or Flower will do. Tie a nine inch piece of Pink ribbon arond bottle neck. Next, close your eyes and sprinkle 9 drops over each eyelid of your 'Faery Potion Water', careful not to get it IN your eyes! Next recite this Faery incantation and watch for the Fae.

Do you see the Faery?
'Ribbon of pink, I just might think.
I would like to see the Fae today.
Special sight of Faery's flight,
Send to me the way today.
A sprinkle here a sprinkle there,
A secret spell I say today.
Wispy wings and little things,
Are what Id like to see today.'
PLEASE note this may need to be repeated to see the Fae, as they are VERY cautious little creatures!

The Flowers

"All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames -
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny treetops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grownup people's trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all."

~ Robert Louis Stevenson


The Oak leaf Fairy Spell

If a maid that is deep in love will go with her suitor to a lonely place in the meadows
or the woods, or to the moors, and place within her own and her lover's shoe a single oakleaf;
and if they both will wait there and contemplate their love, and speak it to one another as
evening falls and the stars come out, they will, if their patience is good,
behold the fairy host as they come to gambol and sport in the wilds.

The four leaf clover spell

If a maid will slip a four~leaf clover into her left shoe,
and tie a garland of myrtle and clover around her brow,
she will see the fairies as the moon comes up.

Their wishes are happy, of joys to share.
Join in their revelry, if only you dare.
Carefree of spirit, their happiness impart
Sending you Magick, to store in your heart.

Another New Gnome spotting, Gnome is circled in white and then shown close up. This creature was found in the deep woods of Maine in an amazing Mushroom circle, I felt something scramble over my toes, when I looked down it was hiding behind a leaf as I snapped this pic. He was so wild it looked like a LEAF but it was gray blue with eyes. I left an offering of granola for my strange firend, who I belive laughed as I turned to leave. It was a very strange encounter. Later that day I kept finding money all around, not a huge amount, but silver dollars kept appearing in my pockets. It was such an amazing & magical experience.

My sister Linda snapped this pic in a favorite spot of ours in the deeps woods of central Maine. It is where many (not all) of my photos on this page have been taken. She has a house there and the woods are wild and untamed with an incredible feeling you must experience to understand. Well, she said she was walking awhile when she heard a sort of 'low moan', when she turned around she found a creature looking at her from behind a tree, the creature you see in this picture. She was carrying an apple, but was so startled by what she saw, it dropped from her hand and rolled toward this creature. She said it stretched it's neck and ate the apple. Linda said the really weird thing was, it was sorta transparent ghostly white with glowing eyes & no body that she could see, just a long neck and face. Linda snapped this as it ate the apple pic just before it dissapeard into the trunk of this tree. She said it was the strangest thing she has ever seen. I am wondering if any one else has seen a creature in the woods like this, we think it looks sorta like a strange kind of Giraffe, but believe it may be a tree Dryad (spirit)


Fairy Trees, if you please...

* Elder *


Elder is said to offer protection to the faeries from negative spirits.

* Hawthorn *


Hawthorn, also known as Witches' Tree, is one part of the sacred triad of trees that are said to be sacred to the Faery. Oak, Ash, and Thorn, when growing naturally together, create a place where it is easy to see the Fey. Hawthorns were once believed to be the transformed bodies of Witches, who had shapeshifted into tree form. It is more likely that the spirit seen in the Hawthorn was that of a dryad or tree faery.

* Oak *


Legend tells us that "Faery folks are in the oaks". Oak trees are believed to provide safe havens and homes for many varieties of faery.

* Apple *


The bark of apple trees or the fruits themselves have the power to transport a true-hearted seeker to the Otherworld. Burn the bark as an offering to the Good Folk on Midsummer's night. Also used in faery love spells. Cut an apple open to reveal the five pointed natural star.

Jasmine Aura

This is a picture of my Jasmine plant, JUST as it came back from the photo shop. NO effects are added, it seems there is a "aura" surrounding the flower I am holding, OR could it be the energy of a Flower Faery? AMAZING isn't it? This is one of my favorite plants, the tiny white flowers hold the MOST bewitching fragrance. I use the flowers in magical workings with the Fae.


Fairy Herbs & Flowers

* Bluebell's *


Said to attract faeries to dance in your garden. On Beltane eve, make an ankle braclet of "Bluebells" and "jingle" bells to attract helpful fae folk to you.

* Clover *


A sacred faery plant, clovers of all kinds will attract them. Lay seven grains of wheat on a four-leafed clover to see the Faery.

* Elderberry *


Used to make Fairy wine, these berries can be burned on a fire to invite the Good Folk to a gathering.
Make a homemade brew of Elderberry Wine and you are sure to have some thirsty visitors. It is said that if a human drinks the wine, she will be able to see the Faery. If a human should drink Elderberry wine from the same goblet as a Faery being, he will be able to see them forever after.

* Elecampagne *


Also known as Elfswort. This root can be scattered around the home to attract the Sidhe. It can be added to any magick or spell to invoke Faery blessing.

* Foxglove *


The source of the modern heart drug Digitalis, Foxglove can have seriously dangerous results if taken internally. DO NOT INGEST!!
Instead, plant Foxglove near your front door to invite the Faery in. Put a dried sprig of Foxglove in a talisman to keep you surrounded in Faery light.

* Heather *


Heather is said to ignite faery passions and open portals between their world and our own. Make an offering of Heather on "Beltane" eve to attract good fae to your garden

* Lilac *


The sweet scent is said to draw Fae spirits to your garden. Lilac and primroses for midsummers eve, will please the Fae.

* Mistletoe *


The most sacred herb of the Druids. Mistletoe is a magical activator. In Fairy spells, use a dash of Mistletoe taken on Summer Solstice to empower your workings with Fairy magic.

* Milkweed *


Both Monarch butterflies and fairies like milkweed. If Milkweed is planted in a Witches garden, the fey will always be in the area. The silky tassels of the Milkweed pods can be added to a dream pillow to not only make it softer but also to make you dream of fairies. In the Autumn when the pods are bursting and the fluffy seeds are flying across the fields, a wish is granted for each seed that can be caught and then released again.

* Peony *


Peony seeds were once used to protect children from faeries. A garland of the seeds were placed around the child's neck to keep them safe from a fairy kidnapping. In this day and age, with fairy contact so drastically diminished, I doubt that anyone would want to don this faery banishing herb unless they were living smack dab in the middle of a circle of crazed Fae!!

* Poppies *


Said to invoke the faery into your dreams Make a dream pillow of fresh poppies to entice the fae to your dreams.

* Primrose *


When planted in a garden or hung dried on the front door, primroses will attract the company of Faeries. If you have them growing under your care, do not let them die! The Fairy will be deeply offended by your carelessness. Primroses are great in container gardens. Tie a pink ribbon around your container of Primroses while chanting;
"Sacred roses, hear my cry
for your protection, this I tie"

* Roses *


Roses attract the Fairy to a garden. Their sweet scent will lure elemental spirits to take up residence close by. Roses can be used in Fairy love spells. When performing the spell, sprinkle rose petals under your feet and dance softly upon them while asking the Fairy for their blessing on your magick.

Roses are loved by the fey so you can plant Roses in your garden to attract fairies. Wild Roses are best for this purpose and you need to say the following spell as you plant your baby Rose bush:

"I ask a fairy from the wild,
To come and tend this wee rose-child.
A babe of air she thrives today,
Root her soul in the Goddesses' clay.
Fairies make this twig your bower,
By your magic shall time see her flower!"

* Thyme *


Wearing thyme will increase your ability to see the Sidhe. Sprinkle it at the base of your door, and on window sills to invite the Fairy to enter your home.
