Then blow out the candle and keep the conviction that your wish will come true, because that is what will happen.

Fairies: They want to help You

The New Age is a spiritual movement that came along with the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. The New Age is a philosophical trend that focuses on optimism and conviction that can always be better. For this It resorts to traditions and beliefs of East and West, which anyone can turn t to improve their quality of life. Fairies, tree spirits, nature spirits and elves are elemental beings of nature that are always available to help humans, as long as they are invoked in the right way. Angels also exist to assist people, although they are not elementary beings. They are heavenly beings of infinite goodness, intermediaries between heaven and human beings. To get their help, we must call upon them correctly, so that they can participate in our lives. Fairies are elementary beings best predisposed to communicate with humans. That's why they can help you to succeed in any area of life. For them to fulfill our desires, we must ask to be well specific and make one wish at a time. They love to fulfill desires, because they like people to be happy.

Ritual for Fairies

The best time to summon them is at night, a while before bed. It's best to lie in bed, in a meditative state, with tour eyes closed, as if you were praying. Imagine you enter a beautiful forest and walk inside it. Then you stop and say this phrase, so that your fairy will appear: "Beautiful fairy, I invoke you to be in my life and you can grant me the desire to.... (here you say your wish)." Imagine that your fairy appeared in front of you and smiles at you. Then you say goodbye with this phrase: "Thank you for answering my call, beautiful creature. I hope to see you again soon." Imagine she disappears. Now you can open your eyes and feel the gratitude that you were able to communicate with your fairy. You can go to sleep with the certainty that she will fulfill your wish.

An important thing to do: to summon fairies you must pay homage to them with offerings. You must place in a room a table where you will put a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a container of milk, another with honey and fruits. Then light a white candle and set the room with music of sweet melodies. Fairies will be happy to visit your home and fill you with blessings. When your fairy has already fulfilled your first wish, you can ask for the following wish by repeating this ritual.

Have you ever wondered, what are angels? what do they do? how do they help us? Well, angels are celestial and divine beings created by God, they are his messengers.

Rumor has it that if you experience a heavy feeling out of the blue, it means that several angels are around you.

Then, how do we link with angels? There are several ways you can connect with your angels. For example, you can call them and ask for help, you might not believe this, but angels are always around you, they are just waiting for you to ask for help so they can guide you through the situation. If that doesn't work, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and tell your angels what you want them to help with. Another thing you can do is to listen and be aware, angels always respond to our calls, we just need to listen and see the signs. Other people prefer to connect using a different method, crystals. After sending a call of help to your angels, you can use several crystals to connect even better with them. You just need to either set the crystal on an angel altar or keep it near you. I made a list for you of the crystals that are best to connect with angels.
