If you have a garden and you want it to be magical and free of evil fairies, I highly recommend befriending some Good Fairies. However, this isn't always an easy task. Most Good Fairies that I know of don't have cell phones or Facebook pages, so it requires a little effort and creativity to make their acquaintance. Here's six methods that I have found effective for attracting Good Fairies (and other magical creatures) to my garden:
1. Make A Place For Them

2. Charm Them With Flowers

Everyone loves flowers and Good Fairies are no exception. They are attracted by all varieties of blooms but including some low growing, smaller plants just for them is always a good idea.
3. Use Your Imagination

Good Fairies come in many fashions and forms and not all of them are obvious or logical. So make sure you keep your mind open to all possibilities and your eyes open to all the beauty around you.
4. Practice Stillness

You won't attract Good Fairies if you are too busy to notice them or benefit from their magic. This is just one of many reasons you should allow yourself some time in your garden for rest and contemplation.
5. Be Kind

Showing kindness, empathy and compassion for other people, animals, our environment and ourselves not only scores big points with Good Fairies but also makes the world a more magical place for everyone.
6. Work Hard

This is great gardening advice a wise Garden Gnome named Shaun Cassidy gave me (click here for full story). The real magic of hard work is that not only does it attract Good Fairies but, once they show up, you will be so energized by their presence that the work will no longer seem so hard. You may even start to think of some of your toughest gardening tasks as enjoyable!
So there you have it, six surefire ways to attract Good Fairies and good energy to your garden. Happy gardening and thanks for stopping by!
