"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore. Welcome! to my world.

The Good Fairy-Witch Has Been Found!

Greetings BlogLandia.....

I want to tell you a little story.







I woke up this morning while it was still betwixt time....not light, but not dark...... I love this.
I had sleep still in my eyes and head, and yet my body knew to move and exactly where to go......to wander outside to see this mystical light becoming.
It was as enchanting as ever and came with a surprising chill, a chill I haven't felt in many many moons. My skin was needing a cover it said, how odd I found this. My visit was short but sweet and it kept its numinous quality with me as I ventured from Mystical Nature to human home. Yet my home is imbued with lots of this Nature.

Something compelled me to get online, though I try not to do this so early, I don't remember now what it was. I visited several places and then I saw an image.....one I've loved all my life. How so very simple is this image, yet it evokes within me some powerful kind of passion, magnanimous with Spirit. It was an image of a woman's hair, long hair which I love so dearly. It was in a style I loved but hadn't worn in far too many rotations of the sun. I remembered and I wondered, why? why hadn't I worn my hair so? I grow it long for a reason, it is a mantle of beauty, of comfort, of joy, of playfulness, of decor, of all that is natural. I took the pins out of my twisted bun and set my hair free. I could feel a huge sigh of relief. I shook it out and checked for its length....yes, its still there. I ran to my looking glass.... How is the texture? It was ok because the twist gives it texture and wave and body. I brushed out the tangles and added a beautiful fragrant oil to the tips, and misted it with Orange Blossom Water. I wanted to put my hair into that simple image I had seen of my previous self. A simple pony tale, with the band loose and leaving the whole head looking like the hair is still free, but yet tied in the middle so you don't see where the length ends. I left my hair to settle itself.




I went for my Hat.

I have a hat you know. A new one. Its a black hat. I don't wear black hats, but I had to have this one.
I told myself when I saw it, it is not an appropriate hat for me, but my hands wouldn't put it down. Another wiser self said ''get it, you will make it into an appropriate one and it will be alot of fun''. Well, when a wise one speaks of fun you don't argue or think, you do.

I had the feeling something was happening. That something was going to happen. That someone special was coming and I needed to get ready. I was all for it! What else do I need? My hair is happy and fragrant and looking like an image I loved and now was Me.







I went for the hat. I added only a couple of things and tried it on.....and a smile came to my lips.






So the hat determined the rest of what was to go together, it felt rather Witchy to me......{{grins}}



Something else now.....something more mysterious and playful......oh! I know!













Were the colors ok? The wise one made a wry expression............. if you can feel such things, I think you most certainly can!....there is no such thing as ''matching'' when it comes to special visits and special people,.....is there?"
"No! of course not! you are so right".  I put it out of my head.

I tried it on with the hat....and found myself playing....yes the eyes fit, just right in fact.

Now I needed some jewelry.....some earrings......long dangles....my favorite....




 yep, those work, I made them myself out of Quartz Crystal and silver beads.....love them.

Is that it?

"No".....

I go to my cabinet and pull out a few things....

my pearls of course....
huge silver bangles
and an ancient designed Bronze Celtic Brooch Pin with Moonstone inlaid gemstone.







Now I need to dress.....''what do I??......''    before I could finish the question I just knew.....it almost seemed like someone was helping me!



 






I love how the bottom is full of flouncy lace......... this is a special designed Lace Coat. The one who sold it to me told me the other woman who owned a similar one got married soon after she got it.








 What about shoes?.....''already done MiLady!''













 humm......I'm starting to really like this.....what goes with the Lace Coat?

''how about the black skirt made of antique sari silk and embroidered with silver thread?"

''Oh! I know the one! ''







It's all very pretty and so much beautiful texture! I think I'm ready......

I began to wonder about all this. I was definitely preparing for something and I haven't done this in a very long time.
I put on my music and reveled in the feelings of playing with all of this.
I went for some candy I actually made myself. It is quite amazing how simple my favorite-candy-in-the-world is, but in all these years I never thought to look it up as I thought it was some complex miracle of some celestial bakers who conjured up such a scrumptious treat....but I had a craving for this which I've not had in....oh about 30 years? Its called Nut Butter Crunch and my mother used to buy it and I could never get enough. I never bothered to look into this miracle since as a child I thought it was purely impossibly unattainable. I have since tried it in a few places but it never hit the spot.
But the other day, I wondered.....I got online and lo and behold, this delight of my youth is called by various names, some refer to it as English Toffee. Whatever the name, it turns out to be unbelievably simple to make. It was so simple I could not believe it. I could not believe that the heavenly delight I ate as a child could be this simple, it MUST be more complex in ingredients. I searched and looked and looked at various recipes and spent an embarrassing amount of time watching moving-pictures on making this, just to make sure I was really seeing this right. I thought maybe they simplified it, degraded it, since things now are definitely NOT the way they were when I was growing up. However, I could find no complex and lengthy recipes. :D And since it turned out I had the 4 ingredients on hand, I decided to make it. I did vary on it a little bit, I always have to do things my way based on my taste buds telling me what it wants and it came out rather perfect I have to say!
You can find many recipes online, they are basically sugar and butter melted together, cooked till dark, spread onto pan, left to harden, melted chocolate spread on top, then crushed almonds or walnuts or whatever nuts you like on top of that. Leave to firm up, then crack apart. How simple was that?

So this Magical Mysterious Morning, as ''we'' were preparing for some special guest.....the first thing I wanted was a piece of this Butter Crunch....this sweet was to satisfy the imp in me who was orchestrating this whole venture for some reason.....

 














But because a proper Fairy's diet consists of the very living environment in which she lives, the vegetation and fruits from trees, the herbs, and leafy green vegetables......she has to have a large amount of a combination of this and she does so next ........







 ooo! what do I see there?? is that the Fairy Witch laughing as she takes a picture of the Green Goddess Drink?? wearing her crown of pearls !


 

and while she was in the kitchen getting candy and Green Drinks, she also wondered about dinner and brought out the huge bowl of greens to be prepared for later.....
now back to our Mysterious Visitor and helper.....









She/I/we?? sat at her Vanity and began to gather what else a special guest would want......
she brought out all her ungents, bottles, and beautifying things .....
pure Oil of Coconut blended with Pure Oil of Frankincense, makes the skin soft and fragrant, this oil is divine! No magical being is complete without sparkles and I have a selection with brush ready here.









Also the skin must glow like a luminescent moonlit night, so crushed then pressed Moonlight Powder is ready too.


















''Will I need a Magical Pumpkin ???''




"No." she says softly with a smile.





 We are nearing the end of our preparations.....wonder who this is for??









"This is for you, my darling......for you who hasn't seen your true self in many many a moon. You have been hidden.....hidden by too much of the mundane world, crushed by things your heart could not bear to see, whisked away from the outer and hiding within the inner. It is time for you to come out, come out and play, to be Your Self, to Play with the World, to teach the World, to be the Good Good Witch that you are......No longer allow anything or anyone coerce you to conformity, nor seduce you into submission. My darling, come out and play again.....you are ready, you are more than ready, you are resplendent.......you must attend the most important celebration there is.....Your Own Life.....

even as you prepare you wear a Crown of Pearls........







The world needs you and your Magic......''

You have been preparing.....''

FOR YOU .....''

Now Welcome Your Self with our custom of affection and joy at the return of a very special guest, and treat Her as you would the most special person you can think of....you know who She is......


''I will be back........''   she says with a soft smile.
