It was our very last minutes at a sacred place in the Emerald Isle. For the sum total of my adventure there here is the link. Kal spends the summer solstice in Ireland. Drombeg is the name of the place we were at and although Chris (aka Gwas) was raring to get going to the airport I was held in place by more ritual work to be done.
From the other posts you will learn that this trip had been very much about the Water element. In particular learning how to use it to see into the Depth of the things. In my last post, I mentioned that I had just received a gift from the Fay and was still in commune with them.
(from previous post…)
A curious thought occurred to me, could I see into the depth of them? I cast about for some water and found a little sneak view of the ocean. Not forgetting to anchor myself, I dug deep into the Earth and anchored myself, then letting my focus wander out over to the ocean, I took hold of a vast sway of the ocean. Feeling ready, I looked at the Fay and tried to see them. It failed miserably. Not only did it fail, but it made me feel dizzy for the moment (so much for an Earth anchor!) A voice quite close to my ear surprised me out of my dizziness.

Even if I were to join with my Energy Double? I asked. There was no answer, hmmmm Interesting. I wanted to add that additional point because I had not got an answer to that question. In fact I got a distinct hesitancy to answer.
Unlike the other Fay I have encountered, these seemed much more chatty. They said that we could have a mutually beneficial relationship if I created a permanent connection to this place. What kind of benefit and relationship I asked…Remember this wisdom from ages…When you shake hands with the Fay, count your fingers and toes.
The Fay (one or many I couldn’t tell) said that they couldn’t leave this place but that through me they could experience other places and in return I could call on their vast knowledge of magic. Wow! Sounded very equitable. But that old haunting question came to mind. “Why me?” Almost at once the thought returned, because you are Faery Tainted. What does that mean????
I let go of the question (again) and breathed deeply…How do I create this connection…Look, the Fay said, and pointed out the three faery rings, then they flew over to the three incense sticks I had lit, As I was present with them, I heard three bees fly past me and in the distance there were three caws of a crow.
Then I was (or my vision) was taken up in the air and I was shown the four elements. Earth, Water, Fire (the sun), and Air (the fact I was in the air).
These are the ingredients for your connection. Three bees, three crows and the four elements. If you find these, you will be able to connect with us. So, not very often then, was my thought.
The Fay ignored me, “unless we connect with you” they added. I was about to ask if they needed bees and crows. But I have developed a certain cautious respect for the Faery, unlike Caileach who tolerates my rather rude behaviour.
Can you tell me what kind of wisdom I can access, I asked. I was expecting a no, so when They said Yes, I was surprised. Maybe it was given as a bridge of trust?
You are seeking components of a wand. It was a statement not a question. When you are in Egypt, you may ask us where to find the Amber
And with that cryptic statement, the commune ended. I sat there for a while wondering about this new revelation, Egypt? Amber? After my initial shock waned I wondered if there were any Bees and Crows in Egypt?
Just when you think a trip could not get any better. It does!
