A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. The idea that a wish would be granted came from the notion that water housed deities or had been placed there as a gift from the gods. Our process is a little different, but works on the same principles.
How it works:
-Choose a one time donation amount; pay what you feel. Higher donations are always appreciated and help support our sliding scale programs, however each donation corresponds to a single prayer/wish. There is no limit on how many donations/prayers a person can make in a session. Paying more doesn’t increase the chances of the petition being granted.
-Each Wishing Well session is done weekly on Fridays as a collective batch. All requests and prayers are written out individually and burned in a ceremonial dish. An offering is provided to appease the spirits to grant your wishes and prayer. Keep in mind that, just like tossing the proverbial coin into the water, results can take time and often come in unexpected forms.
-In the notes section of checkout, or by email (WishingWell@PurpleFinchCaravans.Com), include the as many details of your prayer, or the person being prayed for, as you would like the receiving spirits to have. The more specific, the easier it is for the spirits to work on. ***If no wish is specified with your order, a general petition for wellness and unspoken desires will be substituted on your behalf.***
-While no actual tangible things will be shipped to you, photo/video proofs are generally sent the day following the conclusion of the ceremony. *****Due to the massive increase of petitions during this troubling time, photo/video proofs will no longer be sent unless specifically requested at the time of purchase.*****
-We are not responsible for your wishes coming true, it’s up to the spirits and ancestors to decide; hence the offering. This is not a spell we are performing for you, it’s a ceremony where your desires are heard. Spirits can be more accommodating at certain times of the year. They can also be more willing to help out when you word your petitions/wishes in a way which flatters them or convinces them you’re worthy of their favour. If you feel like your desired outcome isn’t happening quickly enough, feel free to try again, although they’re known to bring unfavourable circumstances on those who annoy or insult them. It’s not recommended to waste their time. Watch for omens around you in the days following the ceremony for indications on whether your wish has been accepted or not.

It's taking too long! It's not coming true.
