The Fairy House: A St. Patrick's Day Imagery Exercise

For Good Fortune

Thanks to our friend TLB for sharing this fairy tradition enacted on St. Patrick’s Day.

  • Close your eyes and breathe out and in three times slowly.
  • Go into your secret garden.
  • There, build a fairy house of any size you desire. Using wood, build a triangular roof with only two sidewalls, open in the front and the back.  Decorate it with sparkling materials - silver, gold, gemstones, leaves of myrrh, grass, four leaf clovers and light.
  • Make a wish there.
  • Leave the fairy house, undisturbed, for the fairies to inhabit, knowing that good fortune is coming to you.
  • Breathe out and open your eyes.
