The Faery Godmother has been around since the birth of magic itself and is a force to be reckoned with. She presents powers of extremity in the highest form, and presides over our destiny as she spins her web of fate. She reminds us that disbelief destroys one’s inner mystic and power, that the time to reclaim our birthright is now!
She is the Goddess in disguise, and can come in the form of any of the Triple aspects of Maiden, Mother or Crone, depending on what is called for. In the days when the Old Ways were honoured, the wise women of the village would take young maidens from their homes, as their apprentices, and teach them how to work with herbs and the magic of nature. Could these woman have been looked upon as a kind of Faery Godmother by the girls? The first archetype, perhaps, of Her very persona.
However, the Faery Godmother is not a soft touch, for she brings with her great lessons and unveils harsh truths, in order that you let go of anything or anyone who is holding you back, to learn and discover a whole world of possibilities, of freedom and of magic.
Once the Faery Godmother is called upon, your life will never be quite the same again. She will bestow you with a sense of self-sufficiency, to remind you that whatever you need is never far away. It is always to hand, if you know how to use it. Take the story of Cinderella, for example; The fairy godmother lifts her wand and transforms the pumpkin into a coach, and the rat, mice and lizards into the coach men who take Cinderella to the royal ball. All the ingredients were already there, she just had to be inventive!
When your Faery Godmother turns up she will listen, and although she will always lend a sympathetic ear you can be sure that she will get of the root of the problem. Be strong, be brave and be comforted to know that your Faery Godmother only has your highest interest at heart, as she shatters any illusions that have blinded you from the truth.
She invites you to peer into the magic mirror, an ancient scrying vehicle in which the past, present and future is revealed, as well as all truths. For magic mirrors do not lie and underline the basics of magic – which is that you may not always get the answer that you want! However, every faery-tale battles between good and evil, and your Faery Godmother may wish to encourage you to recognise and work with your shadow self. In magic there is a place and a purpose for the dark. For every hero and heroine is required to stumble through the dark forest, blinded for a time as they confront the darkness, until they discover the light and their happy ending.
However, many faery-tales include Her as the kind one, who will listen, sympathise and assist in making your wishes come true. Think Cinderella’s very own Faery Godmother and the ‘good witch’ Glinda, from the Wizard of Oz. Their loving attributes are based upon the Mother aspect of the Triple Goddess, and it is She who will support you in your hour of need, dry your tears and cheer you on as She puts everything into place in making your dreams come true.
So, invite your Faery Godmother in and allow her to help you to unlock your true potential …….

INVOKING YOUR VERY OWN FAIRY GODMOTHER
Peer into this magic mirror and set your intentions by saying;
Mirror, mirror let me see.
Now light a white candle and gaze into the flame. Take your breath and breathe deeply, in and out, through your heart centre. Feel the warmth of your heart as it expands to an overwhelming, immense feeling of love. This is the time to call upon your Faery Godmother who is ready to transform you into your glorious real-self. Gaze into the mirror and watch as the flame dances in its reflection.
My Faery Godmother, who’ll appear to me”
Once you have familiarised yourselves, you hear her sweet words ring through you;
I’ll wave my wand, now wait and see
This is now your opportunity to ask your Faery Godmother for any magical assistance you may need. Once you have made your wishes she invites you to peer into the magic mirror, an ancient scrying vehicle in which the past, present and future is revealed, as well as all truths. For magic mirrors do not lie and underline the basics of magic – that you may not always get the answer you want!
Your Faery Godmother promises that whenever she turns up she will listen, and although she will always lend a sympathetic ear you can be sure that she will get of the root of the problem. As she works with you, allow her to unearth hidden away emotions that have been festering, such as jealousy and anger. These lower agitations will be exposed and you will have no choice but to learn how to deal with them. But don’t be alarmed, for your Faery Godmother is with you every step of the way. She encourages you to dig deep, and get to the bottom of the feelings that have prevented you from receiving all that you have been desiring. Be strong, be brave and be comforted to know that your Faery Godmother only has your highest interest at heart, as she shatters any illusions that have blinded you from the truth.Empowerment is Her gift. She offers you the chance for new life, new beginnings and changes through the magical act of transcendence.
Your Faery Godmother lifts her magnificent wand which flashes with sparkly light and surrounds you in a ball of iridescent faery dust. Feel the magic and breathe it in. Allow it to surge through every part of your very being. Feel the dream happening, feel the knowingness of your wishes being granted and coming true. Magic surrounds and fills you as you stand strong in your own power that has fully been awakened.
Nod your head with a beautiful smile toward your Faery Godmother as an acknowledgement and tell yourself that you will leave a small offering for her in return.
