On Midsummer’s Eve, the veils are their thinnest between this realm and that of the Fae, the Shining Ones, the Spirits of the Forest, the Elementals.
It is customary on Midsummer’s Eve to pick a Rose and share your wishes (usually for a Beloved) with the Fae, then place the flower beneath your pillow to ensure that your wishes come true on Midsummer’s Day.
This evening, the children and I whispered our prayers to the Fae, who have been such a source of comfort and healing throughout their childhood, and picked a Rose each.
This is Sophia with her beautiful tattoo transforming her life-saving surgery scar into the Rose of Sophia-Magdalene, and Zac with his gorgeous new smile (Jasmine was having a bad hair day 😂).
Then, one by one, we offered a petal to our Divine Magical Child and Fairy statue, which has travelled to each house with us over the last 20 years, and holds so many of our prayers, dreams and secrets in her stone.
Now to sleep with my Rose and dream of my Lord of the Wildwood…
