MEDITATION IN A JAR
After dark, turn on some faerylike music. Albums by Enya, Alain Stivell, Kim Robertson, and Clannad are all ideal.
First make the meditation jar. Use a jar with a cap. Put in a teaspoon each of all these dried herbs: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, garlic salt, marjoram, sage, and cloves.
Before you do the meditation, cap and shake the jar gently. Uncap the jar, and carefully inhale the scent, making sure none of the powder gets in your eyes, nose, mouth, or on your skin. The powers of the herbs heighten your psychic abilities.
Now sit or recline comfortably. Loosen any clothing that may be binding you. Close your eyes, and imagine a magical faery castle. Shape and fashion it from anything you like: the moon, the stars, crystals, gems, or flowers. This faery castle is a place where you can go to energize yourself with the magic of faeryland, even if it’s just a few minutes.
Take a deep breath in and out. In your mind’s eye step over the threshold of the castle, and enter it. As you step inside, your senses seem to come alive. You notice that the castle is filled with friendly faeries of all different types. There are flower faeries and woodland elves, winged faeries and will-o-wisps. Take a few minutes to explore the castle and all the faeries within. Enjoy the joyful sensations that accompany the adventure.
When you are done meditating, bring your attention to the present time and place, or if you like, drift to sleep, thinking of your faery castle. The jar can be used for other magical works. When the scent is gone, empty the jar contents onto the earth as an offering to the faeries. Say:
This is an offering to the kind and helpful faeries!
