The Gypsies, Roma or Romany have a long history of freedom and travel, passing on their ancient knowledge of nature, the elements and the power of the earth and its fauna and flora within families and traveling groups. They are first recorded traveling in Europe during the middle ages, coming originally from Northern India to criss-cross and trade then settle in various places, such as Romania, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain and from Spain to Ireland as well. From their ancient home in Northern India and the foothills of the Himalayas the Gypsies brought a deep mysticism and a great store of ancient magical knowledge.
Throughout the ages there were often persecuted and chased away so that they evolved a philosophy of "living on the move" yet always remaining in balance with nature around them and never letting their fiery passion for life wither. They are well known as great story-tellers, great "seers" - they are credited with bringing the Tarot to western Europe- great horse breeders and artists. All through Europe they can still be found, sometimes still living in colorful caravans, the women dressed in vibrant long skirts and blouses adorned with many coins and talismans. They are musicians, artists, poets, singers, metal workers (the Irish tinkers) and are involved in all manner of creative endeavors.
Gypsies carefully guarded their ancient knowledge throughout the ages and their travels and continue this day to practice their magical rituals and spells. Most include the use of fire, herbs, candles and prayer. Once a year, European Gypsies pilgrimage to Saintes Maries de la Mer, where it is believed Marie Salome, Marie Jacobe and Marie Magdalene arrived in a barque with no sails and no oars. Floundering off the coast of the Camargue in southern France, they were rescued by Sara-La-Kali (the dark one) who threw her cloak onto the waves and thereby walked to their barque and pulled it ashore. A chapel was built there eons ago, in their honor and it is the goal of the pilgrimage. It is situated in the Rhone Delta,
south of the town of Arles, where the pungent herbs such as lavender grown on the foothills of the Alps linger day in day out. In June each year, thousands of gypsy caravans arrive in the village and families converge towards the chapel.
As a child growing up in France I was always strongly attracted to the bands of gypsies who came up the Loire valley in early fall to hire themselves out for "les vendanges", the grape picking season, an enormously difficult and back-breaking task that would result in future cuvees of fine wines. They were greatly mistrusted, underpaid and generally abused. I remember my consternation when the local farmers feared the theft of their horses when I even as a young child, could readily tell that the Gypsies had great looking and much loved horses that bespoke of fine breeding practices whereas our local farmers had old heavy-bred and overworked sway-backed ones!
I also remember being in the grocery store in the village when a young Gypsy man coming behind me and asking for a bag of sugar was very uncivilly required to put his money on the counter first, lest he run off with the sugar. I had not had to show my money but had been tended to with proper etiquette. It was appalling, even to a young child such as myself. So I pretended to remember I had to buy some sugar myself, then handed it over to the young man and told him, 'now you can pay". I was gratified with a beautiful smile. I wanted to run away with them, learn to handle the horses and maybe even ride them, learn their songs and dances, wear their same long skirts and shawls.. of course I would in due time but it was slow and patient waiting for me the city girl, until I could find my roots and give them breath, water and fire. In the meantime I nourished myself on the music of Django Reinhardt who was often played on the radio. I did make my own pilgrimage to Saintes Maries de la Mer in June 1980 accompanied by my two sons.
ABOUT THE ANCIENT GYPSY SPELLS:
In their native India the Gypsies worship the Devas who faithfully serve the Lord. The Devas also manifest through the elements and everywhere they went, the Gypsies continued to praise and worship God through the Devas in the stones and mountains, the springs and rivers, the winds and the fire.
Fire is essential to the Gypsy people who often gather around it to play music, sing, dance and tell the old stories. Gypsies know the healing powers of water, herbs and stones. Most Gypsy women make their own skin potions and powders, making great use of henna for the hair and skin decorations such as kohl for the eyes. All gypsy women are adorned with special gems and crystals.
All my Ancient Gypsy Spells are done outdoors around a large fire! Elements of the Earth are used for dispelling negative energies, blessing the space and grounding. Herbs and other offerings are given to the fire and prayers are sent to the Devas through the smoke, wonderfully scented. Drumming, specific mantras and dances are an integral part of each and every Ancient Gypsy Spell!!
My personal tried-and-true Ancient Gypsy Spells and Rituals are always done around a fire and have a unique elegance, striving for harmony and balance with all creation around. They draw on the esoteric plane from all of the elemental energies from Northern India all through to the rest of the world, the many regions travelled by the Gypsies during hundreds of years. There lies their power, and they were directly taught to me through my own Guides and Teachers.
