In Faery and sometimes in our world - alchemy is the study and practice of transforming the soul from the lead of primitive conditioned reactions to the gold of spiritual and practical attainment.
Nelys is a mistress of the alchemical arts and she also undertands that daily life is a spiritual exercise. She recognises that transformation may take place from the inside out or from the outside in. When things are stuck and movement has become impossible, Nelys firmly waves her Roan Wand and things happen in ourselves and the world.
(NB: A rowan wand is protective and creates "defensive charms especially strong and difficult to break." It is also a good wand for duelling. This wand is almost never attracted to an evil wizard, but to the "pure-hearted," giving the wand a "reputation for virtue" )
Sometimes things just cannot move without readjustment - perhaps even radical realignmnet. We may feel that we should be able to bring our plans to fruition but we may be aiming at the impossible or at least at the very inappropriate. Part of the impossiblity or inappropriateness may be a result of our own attitudes, beliefs or behaviours, and part of it may be circumstances in the world, things that are beyond our control.
Inner transformation is required in order to achieve what we wish for in the outer world, just as, conversely, changes in the outer world often elicit inner transformation. Personal inner change is the truest transformation of all and in the long run it is the only change that really matters!
When Nelys appears to you (if you are attracted to this candle for instance) get ready for things to happen, inwardly and outwardly. The stuck becomes UNSTUCK and the BLOCKED begins to move! You may have to run to keep up with the speed at which the situation around you is moving.
You may also be surprised by the direction things (and you) are taking. These changes may NOT have been in your plans but later on you will look back and say: "Wow! It wasnt what I expected, but it was JUST what I needed"
When we have been through such an alchemical process we can never go back to what we were before - which is probably just as well!
