Make friends with fey folk and they’ll bring a dusting of enchantment into your life. We carry on our magical journey with water nymphs…
Faeries are not just colourful characters from Disney films or imaginary entities from your childhood; these mysterious spiritual creatures are a part of nature, and calling on their mystical presence can help to bring healing powers into your life.
The first thing to understand when trying to connect with the fey is that they’re not visible to everyone – if you’re disrespectful to Mother Earth or animals, they will sense this and hide away. Always make sure that when you’re working with them you make as few disturbances as possible – picking flowers or dropping litter are big no-nos in the faery world. They also prefer it when your energy is open and calm, so take a few deep breaths to relax your mind and body before calling on their guidance.
As there are so many different types of elementals, all with their own quirks and attributes, knowing who to work with and when can be a tricky, especially if you’ve never tried before. So we’ve asked faery expert Lucy Cavendish (who has had magical visitations since her childhood) to explain how to make contact with five very different beings, and exactly how they can enchant your spiritual path.
Lake Enchantresses: Water Nymphs
Want to tap into your divine femininity or need some guidance with your love life? Water nymphs are the fey folk for you. These sensual beings reside in fresh water, so be on the look out near springs, lakes and rivers.
They’re said to be seductive and spellbinding with long hair and shimmering translucent bodies. Unlike a lot of other faeries, they can also take on the shape of women. The traditional method for contacting nymphs is offering something sacred to a body of water. But if you don’t want to part ways with something precious, you can channel them by clearing up any rubbish you find near their habitats.
Request their presence by looking deeply into the water and feel their calming energy wash over you. You can lean on these beauties whenever you want to release emotional attachments to somebody in your past. And, they’re a great help if you need a confidence boost to attract a new love interest.
