THE MAGICK OF FAERIES
What are Fairies (or Faeries as they are more properly called)? Are they little people with butterfly wings fluttering about like Tinkerbell? Or powerful energy beings of nature with various magickal traits to protect and help the goddess and nature everyday.
Those of you who love and honour nature and believe in Magick will surely have a wonderful connection with Faeries who will be very positive to you in your magickal development. Faeries dislike selfish or dishonest people while blessing and guiding those who are virtuous and helpful to nature and the universe. If you do not believe in them and do not wish to experience magick you will never find them.
While Faeries can take countless forms – male or female, human or animal like, or flowers, plants, crystals and anything you can imagine…they will connect with you and appear to you only if you activate your inner sight and purify your spirit.
Negative or demonic energy beings or bad faeries will not be attracted to you – as like attracts like and you choose to be a positive person. Angels and other positive faeries will be attracted to you instead. Angels are the positive faery beings or energy beings that help humans while there are also many many other varieties of positive energy beings besides angels that help nature too. Faeries of nature are especially attracted to witches who do good work for the betterment of nature and not just for selfish human desires. It is our aim at Earth Healing Temple of Magick that we humans come back into balance and harmony with nature through awareness of this sacred path of Wicca and all the hidden magick of nature that shapes our lives through our intentions.
Some popular faerie beings of legend and lore:
1. Dragons and Salamanders
Like the astral salamander seen in the camera at Magick, dragons or drakes are beings of fire or light. They are popular in ancient celtic as well as chinese folklore and make popular feng shui relics. They bring treasures or guard treasures such as ‘Smaug’ of Hobbit by Tolkein. They turn to balls of light and merge with day. They are symbols of power, luck, success and dynamism, being the attributes of the natural element of fire. Salamanders are also found in earthy form as dinosaurs, lizards, crocodiles and other dragon creatures on earth but it is the astral dragons or drakes that we know to be spirits of nature or faery.

2. Pixie Fairies and Sylphs
The faeries of air and popularly what we visualise with the word fairies, are seen as pixie like tiny winged creatures, who are also made of light and travel through wind. In films they are depicted in Faeries -A True Story as well as numerous characters similar to the popular Tinker Bell of Disney. They represent thoughts, mind, fun, changes and freedom. On earth we have butterflies, moths, fireflies, dragonflies etc but unlike physical beings the associated nature spirits are the light bodies called sylphs.

3. Mermaids, Sprites and Undines
The water element has the astral energy of undines or faeries of water. Mermaids and selkies are their forms popular in folklore as well as movies such as Splash or Pirates of the Carribean. Sprites are connected with rivers and streams. On earth we see fishes, seals, octopuses and sea snakes but the astral or light bodies that resemble these are undines. The qualities of intuition, seduction, prophecy, poetry, musical arts are connected to them.
Connect through: shells, mother of pearl or abalone, pearls
4. Gnomes, Brownies, Leprechauns and Elfs
The earth element of nature has little creatures that have human like features. On earth we see insects and animals with human like faces to connect with faery world. Gnomes in mythology and folklore dwell in forests, gardens, trees and shrubs and look just like little people such as depicted in Gnomeo and Juliet who are hard-working and clever. Elfs and brownies are also linked with the earth element and represent hard work. Leprechauns are said to disguise themselves as shoesmiths and to protect wealth. Brownies in particular are the house elfs who are said to help witches in the kitchen in exchange of cookies and cakes such as seen in movies like The Spiderwock Chronicles and Harry Potter. Practicality, earthy wisdom, common sense and work are their attributes.

5. Angels and High Elves
Angels are the more popular of faeries off late as they resemble human world the most and are helpful to us in day to day life. Legend speaks also of High Elves such as seen in Tolkeins worlds. Great shining people of light and human features who guard earth, heal as well as connect us with higher wisdom. They can be the seelie court or helpful angelic beings or the unseelie court of those elves whom humans have angered through destruction of nature such as seen in Maleficient the movie.
Connect through: prayers, ritual invocations, divination, talismans such as elvenstar
These are mythic beings who are made of rocks or mountains with diamonds for teeth. They are seen in literature in some of Terry Pratchetts Discworld series of novels as well as in Tolkiens Hobbit. It is said that when sunlight falls on them they turn to stone. Mountainsides and avalanches could be linked with them. They are not usually expected to be very kindly to humans and are best not angered or disturbed.
The legendary bird who burns in fire and then rises through its own ashes is popular in Celtic as well as Oriental lore specially Feng Shui. It helps us in qualities of renewal, regeneration, healing and transformation. It resembles the bright roosters of morning but its the light body being which is the astral counterpart that we call the phoenix.

Protection from unseelie faeries, demonic or unwanted entities:
Iron, horseshoe, pentagram, amulets and protection talismans such as Solomon’s circle, Celtic cross, Black banishing candles, drawing a magic circle in ritual are some ways of protecting from unwanted astral entities.
Protection is a must when working with elementals and faery beings to keep unwanted out. Never invoke negative or harmful entities as even if you call them to harm an enemy, ultimately you will be harmed multiple times as they are negative by nature. Keep your aura and space clean, tidy, blessed and positive to attract only good faeries or good folk and keep evil at bay. Think only positive thoughts and meditate with clear mind. Invite only good folk or good faeries to ritual only after proper formal initiation and do not dabble in occult without proper long term guidance from the right spiritual teacher.
