The Faeries’ Guide to Green Magick
Throughout time, people of every society have turned to the earth and attuned themselves to the web of life that pulses through all living things and found the means to sustain themselves. Whether they sought comfort from lavender or mending a broken bone with comfrey, ancient people knew that the way to ensure their health, survival, and security was to call upon the rich supply of the earth’s herbs, plants, and trees.
And yet, our ancestors did not stop at the point of just receiving. They developed and carefully cultivated a symbiotic, give-and-take, stewardship with the earth. They tended to the healing and nourishing of plant life as tenderly as they took care of their own children, all the while understanding it was they who were dependent upon the earth and not the other way around. Their humility helped them forge a reverential relationship with the life force that vibrated within each plant and tree. And by tapping into the earth’s pulsing life, they were part of the green magick that expanded the positive energy and vitality of the earth itself, which in turn increased the health of humans, animals, insects, and all plant life.
As we carelessly and often unconsciously, deplete the earth’s resources, we have lost touch with the magick that was once at our fingertips. Many look aside as wild, verdant lands, and animal and plant species essential to the delicate balance of life, disappear at an alarming rate. By distancing from nature, we have essentially denied ourselves the connection that would bring wholeness, abundance, and peace to our lives. In fact, our innate ability to heal ourselves has become a nearly lost art. When we forgot the heart of nature is our own heart, we created a way of life that taxes the earth’s precious resources and created the need to manufacture what was once organic and easily available. The result has created fierce competition, fear of dominance, and overwhelming feelings of lack. 
Ask yourself, when did nature become something to avoid, and why? We are nature, like a giraffe, a butterfly, a river, lichen, or chamomile. We just need to remember. We need to piece ourselves back together by reestablishing our connection to the earth. We need to reclaim the magick of our bond with the life force that unites us all. There has been no other time in the age of humanity in which the importance of cultivating an ongoing relationship with Mother Earth has taken on such vital importance. This back-to-nature perspective, today’s green movement, is at once practical and spiritual, as everyday life used to be.
Being eco-friendly is much more than buying halogen lightbulbs or using cloth bags. It means we once again form a friendship with our ecosystem. This is no ordinary friendship, but a sacred relationship with the life force teeming through plants, herbs, and trees. This life force—the sentient energy that exists at the heart of each plant—is the faerie or deva of each plant. The synergy of our sacred relationship with this energy is the green magick, the healing serendipity, and the wonder found when we develop a bond with nature. When we truly understand, recognize, and believe in the living soul within each being, within fauna and flora, one by one our collective compassion awakens and it becomes essential to preserve and protect the earth—our home.
When you draw from botanical resources, whether you are flavoring food or working with essential oils for healing, you are tapping into an intelligent life force. When you cultivate a garden you are tending to a living being, whose response to your attention is seen in its growth pattern and increased potency in your recipes. The more you become aware of the consciousness of the botanical realm and the deeper your respect of the life in each plant, the better cook, healer, or gardener you will become because the plants give you an exact exchange for the energy you give them. Your acknowledgment of the plant’s true essence helps carry the highest potentiality into every concoction you will make. The time has come to develop a culture of interconnection and communion with the earth energy—the faeries.
Each faerie has an individual personality, which can appear as a reflection of the plant, tree, or natural element where it resides. Fae or devic energy can also take on abstract forms, such as a blanket of color or the oscillating energy of heat rising from asphalt in hundred-degree weather. Fae can appear as a chorus of winged creatures or as a beautiful woman or man. It may shift from an individual to a collective form and back again. Most certainly, faeries will shake up whatever you thought you knew about them. Consider how long plants have been around. Their intelligence far exceeds our own, and so it is to them that we turn for healing.
The unique expression of each fae as captured by the text and paintings in this book speaks to the intrinsic qualities, traits, and behavior of each herb or tree. Faeries are beings in and of themselves, as humans are beings. Faeries are a separate race, coexisting alongside us, like the birds bringing food to their young or the bees pollinating the flowers as you walk to work. The images of faerie essences found in this book will bring us closer to their feeling rather than their form. The paintings of our faeries are an experiential interpretation of the faerie, or life force energy, of each herb or tree. The images represent sensation, as if you could put a picture to the taste that bounces around in your mouth when you eat an herb or smell a flower. When you give faeries the respect and acknowledgment as the living essence of plant life, whole new vistas of possibilities open up for you, and then the true magick can begin.
Magick spelled with a “k” differentiates the word from “magic,” as in tricks performed for entertainment. It also represents the realm of possibilities, expected serendipity, connection to all living things, and a deep reverence and wonder for nature. The spelling is symbolic and carries deep meaning, pointing directly to the vibrant intersection of where heaven meets earth. The “g” points to the ground or form, similar to a vortex triangle that points to the earth and is generally yin, female, or resting energy. The “k” reaches for the sky, where ideas are born, similar to the upward-pointing apex triangle that is typically considered yang, and represents the male, or active energy.
The overlapping vortex and apex triangles create a symbol, often known as the Star of David. The intersection of form and thought is where magick happens. The connection represents the material and the spiritual coming together to develop the soul. In magickal circles, we refer to this concept with the phrase “As above, so below.” The soul’s work on earth is not complete if it dwells too long in the spiritual realm or mundane reality. It must unite male and female, light and dark, intangible and material, heaven and earth to create magick. On earth, we live in that powerful meeting place where form is created from desire and need.
The four elements of nature are the fundamental tools of magick. Humans are a representation of the four elements working in sync: earth is our bodies, water is our blood, air is our breath, and fire is our energy or spirit. Magick is that feeling when events and people in our life line up with ease and enlightened intention. When you get that tingly sensation and the air feels thick with electricity, you are in the infinite realm of illimitable potential—the womb of creation.
Magickal spells are a matter of aligning your desire with symbolic interpretations of what you want to create (for example, a collage board), then speaking aloud your intention. The etymology of the word spell means “to cast or speak your word.” It is no different than a prayer. Rhymes found in spells speak to the right brain, the part of our consciousness that is most like the cyclical dreamtime world, when anything is possible. Spells are used to change circumstances. Rituals, such as a ceremony to let go of anger or achieve forgiveness, are used to change consciousness.
Tuning in to nature and herbs can help bring the spiritual to the mundane, heaven to earth. Sit with your plants. Visualize the energy that lives in each little herb. Whatever reveals itself to you, is perfect for you. Recognize that you are cultivating friendship with another being. There is no right or wrong way to see the faeries.
Developing a relationship with a singular herb was how the shamans and ancient healers approached unknown plants so many hundreds of years ago. They would meditate with the plants and ask for an interpretation of what the plants had to offer. The message might come in a dream, arise as a symbol, or present itself when a patient was in need. How else could they have determined that inside the spiny leaves of the aloe was a soothing gel that would bring relief to a burn? The plants are just as eager to develop a relationship with you as you are excited to begin working with them. As we become more “green,” we begin to fulfill our destiny to live in harmony, symbiosis, and balance with nature.
The call to reduce our carbon footprints essentially points to the fact that we must stop taking up so much space and give room for the plants to grow. And as we create balance, we discover that every living creature needs water, food, shelter, and space to survive. What can be more important than allowing space for the plant kin-dom that provides us with food and medicine?
One of the most important things to remember as you join or deepen your experience in green magick is to begin the process in a way that is comfo...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding work 10 novembre 2010
Par David G. Urban - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Faeries' Guide to Green Magick takes the average gardener's natural feelings towards nature and blends it with the spirit-filled world of ancient legends and myths. Along the way, the authors manage to give you the practical aspects of green gardening, down to scientific names, descriptions, and uses for common herbs and plants. I guarantee that even if you think you know something about common herbs, you'll learn from this book. The illustrations, by the way, are fantastic and worth the price of the book alone.

Lisa's illustrations and commentary, along with Julia's, make this an extremely enjoyable read. The book explains faerie as well as the lore of the garden. And it also describes the various herbs and their healing and medicinal and culinary properties - all of which should get the reader to develop their own garden and release the benefits of faerie into their lives.

This is my favorite book, and I am so glad I bought it. It has info on so many herbs, and the illustrations are gorgeous. There were so many cool recipes in this book, and it even included the humble dandelion. I will never look at this "weed" the same way again. I reccommend this book to anyone who loves to garden and loves to hang out in their yard.

I love the illustrations for the faeries and the text about the herbs. Very interesting for herbology as well as gardening. A little late this year for planting but will use as a guide next year.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Green + Faeries 30 juin 2013
Par Jeremy Bredeson - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book surprised me. At my first glance at the cover, I was resigned to thinking of it as a fluffy piece of white-lighter nothingness. It's truly a book that you shouldn't, as the adage goes, judge by its cover.

When you get into the book, the first 30-ish pages are explanations: What is Faerie, Green Gardening, and Complementary Medicine. At page 35, however, everything changes. For the rest of the book, each set of four pages talks about a different herb. There's a nicely-done image followed by three pages of information about the herb. Most of them include a recipe of some sort using that particular herb. There are tinctures, teas, poultices, incenses, dream pillows, bath scrubs, oil blends. There is also a quote in there, as if the spirit of the plant as telling you about itself very briefly.

Some of the best inclusions to the book, in my mind, were the sections on Green Gardening, Magical Gardening, and Complementary Medicine. Near and dear to most Pagan hearts is sustainability and recycling, ways to help clean up the planet and make our footprint smaller. The authors address it in such a way that the whole process comes across as reassuring and easy to do for a single person, couple, small family, or circle. They explain how some herbs work better with others, why witch-folk should be growing some of these things, why certain herbal medicinals work the way they do. They de-mystify some of the things that I wanted to know about but didn't know how to ask the right questions.

It surprised me a great deal. It's not your average book on Faerie, nor is it your average book on herbs. I'd love to see a sequel to this book, with expanded herbs, more recipes, and more information. It left me wanting more, but it was a great guide that's more accessible to those of us who aren't green witches than, say, Paul Beyerl's books. I look forward, with great anticipation, to another book from them.
