Fairy Invitation Ritual
To invite fairy creatures into your yard, try showing them the way.
Choose a smooth surface, like a patch of bare earth or a patio, and lay out a circle of fairy footprints, that is, make a stencil by cutting tiny footprint shapes in a piece of paper.
Lay the paper on the ground, and sprinkle it with sugar or some powdered milk.
Then move the paper along, and keep repeating until you have a full circle. Put a few flower petals in the center.
As you work be sure to sing appropriate words, such as:
Little folk of flashing wing,
little folk of dancing feet,
hear my words to you and bring
blessings with you when we meet.
Fairies love music and flowers. They especially enjoy dancing in circles. Give them this simple hint, and see what happens.
