I have recently taken an interest in Faerie Magick. As a beginner in everything Wicca, I wanted only to meet the Fae and ask for spiritual wisdom if they were willing to give it. I left them milk with rose water and bread in my backyard in a secret place under a tree.
Before my offering, I had already met my Fae friends. I believe they are two of the Sylph, Air Faeries with bodies that glow and beautiful human faces. They had long flowing hair and pointy ears, but were besides that, quite human looking. They are twins, and I will not reveal their names for the sake of respecting them. One was male and one was female. The male, I suspected from the beginning, was a prankster. I was keeping up a protective energy force in case any of the Fae I met were harmful. The male twin sought immediately to pry my fingers apart. This he did in the most coaxing way, and I found my hands uplifted.
The female, on the other hand, was kind and gentle and very curious. She examined me and called my Wiccan name in a whisper over and over. She spoke for both herself and her brother. They told me their names, so I saw it as a sign that I could trust both of them. That’s when I left them the offering and invited them into my dreams.
Concerning the male twin, that was a big mistake. While his sister came into my dreams, asking for my wishes that she might grant them, her brother came into my dreams abruptly, interrupting his sister's rendezvous with me.
The beautiful blue mist his sister had created was distorted by him, and I found myself, instead, in the most trying of nightmares. In my dream, two men had created a life-sized killer doll that was programmed to kill a person with my exact face. I spent the rest of my dream in a nightmare, running from this killer, thanks to the prankster, the male twin Faerie.
It was a harmless enough nightmare, and I've had worse. Looking back on it now, I could even laugh. But I plan in the future to practice dream protection before I invite any new friends into my dreams. Better safe than sorry, as they say.
I later learned that the male twin had given me the nightmare as a lesson. He is friendly and cheerful, but his twin sister is still the dominate personality, and I remember her tugging his arm and pushing him before he would explain himself. He was very firm about why he had given the nightmare. He had given it to me for a mistake I'd made, and, in the end, I believe I probably deserved it. Because I am a beginner, he was still patient; almost like a father with a trying child.
As I've said, I'm a beginner in all that is Wicca, so I posted this so you all could have a good laugh at me and maybe even send me your advice. Any believers of the Fae out there? Email me if you like. I'm trying to get my hands on Faery books and I look at websites when I can, but any wisdom from experienced Faery believers is more than alright with me.
I've tried my best to be careful with the Fae, especially after all the reading and studying (and not to mention the dire warnings). My nightmare was the very least of harmful things that could have happened to me, so to all you fellow beginners in Faery Magick, always practice caution. No one can stress that enough.
When working with the Fae:
I'm not an authority on the Fae (yet), but these little tips could serve anyone well.
- Never use iron.
- Be polite to other people. Learn to laugh and smile and enjoy the good in your life. Give good to receive good.
- Leave the Fae offerings, and never give them commands.
- Always protect yourself from Fae that may mean you harm. This could mean visualizing an energy field around you. The power lies within you.
As a few parting words (and I stress the word "few") the Fae will grant you anything you wish. So, just like with any Magick, be careful, careful, careful what you wish for. In example: if you wish for long hair, make sure it’s the hair on your head. Be specific because little pranksters like my male twin friend will take you literally and have a good laugh. Also, what you wish for may cause another person harm. Banishing someone, for instance, or wishing that someone would go away or leave you alone. Always bear in mind the consequences of your actions and remember the Three Fold Law. Whatever you give comes back three times harder (five times in some cases).
Good Fae will, naturally, be attracted to those who practice White Magick, work for the greater good of all, and respect nature. Senselessly harming small insects or animals or even plant life will offend good Fae and even the harmful violent Fae. Everything has a life, has a spirit, has a name. The Fae might take a liking to you if you like the things they like. Besides the obvious liking for nature, they like to sing and dance and laugh. They like milk and bread, honey and roses. Bluebells, I believe, are a favorite. Plant roses in your garden to attract the Fae. And, in case you attract violent nasty Fae, wear a charm or amulet to protect yourself at all times. Or else do a protection spell. Like I've said: the power is in you.
I'll get off my soapbox now. I just wanted to pass the warning along that the Wee Folk ain't so wee. I didn’t want to have any beginners like me running into pain or suffering because they didn’t hear me say: "And, oh yeah, the Fae can cause serious harm!"
So with all that said, be careful and have fun with the Fae! By Earth, Water, Air and Sea, by the Spirit Bright, Blessed Be!
