I am often asked, “What is this faerie dust?” So the story behind the real faerie dust is this: I was walking on the river path in Tucson and lined on the path are hundreds of native trees and plants. Because I have done energy work for over nine years, I often “hear” plants, trees, stones and the animals around “speaking” in their language by sending me images of what they are experiencing or the stories they have to tell. Many of these stories come from the faerie or little spirits of nature from the guardians of these trees and plants.
I reached out my hand as I walked and pulled the dried bloom from a desert willow. I crumpled the bloom in my fingers and the “dust” was gathered by the wind and blown across the river bed, and that was an “Aha! moment” for me: “This is Real Faerie Dust. This is how it is created!”
From that day forward I began to gather donations from willing plants and trees around Tucson. Their are many faerie dust contributors thus far: Desert Willow, Palo Verde, Roses, Ocotillo, Cholla, Lavendar, Cleveland Sage, Saguaro, Oleander, Lantana and many other generous donors! Yay! I process the blooms by crumbling them and saving them in glass jars for storage.
I have found beautiful organza bags in which to place the faerie dust and have gifted many pouches of sacred faerie dust to friends and family. Once I started creating gifts for people and seeing the joy it brings I have asked that if recipients of faerie dust would like to participate in the tracking project I have them send photos of locations where the faerie dust has visited. And each place the faerie dust visits, the faeries of these plants go as well, which really makes the excited and happy!
So thank you for sharing in our adventure!
Here is a map of the current places Faerie Dust has landed. So far it covers parts of North America and Europe.
