About Matrix Energetics
Gabriele’s matrix sessions are creative, focused, intuitive, compassionate and open-minded.
The wishing well is a symbol for the magickal powers of our subconscious mind. In fairy tales there is often a well that is whispering knowledge from a different realm to the seeker. Sometimes faeries, angels or ancestors come to assist him or her. For me this is an image for the magickal transformations, that I have seen happening in my work.

Wishing Well in Folklore
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 idea that water contained deities or had been placed there as a gift from the gods, since water was a source of life and often a scarce commodity.
The Germanic and Celtic peoples considered springs and wells sacred places. Sometimes the places were marked with wooden statues possibly of the god associated with the pool. Germanic peoples were known to throw the armour and weapons of defeated enemies into bogs and other pools of water as offerings to their gods.
Water was seen to have healing powers and therefore wells became popular with many people drinking, bathing or just simply wishing over it. People believe that the guardians or dwellers of the well would grant them their wish if they paid a price. After uttering the wish, one would generally drop coins in the well. That wish would then be granted by the guardian or dweller.
The tradition of dropping pennies in ponds and fountains stems from this. Coins would be placed there as gifts for the deity in thanks.
This may be a left over from ancient mythology such as Mimir's Well from Nordic myths, also known as the ¨Well of Wisdom¨, a Well that could grant you infinite wisdom, if you sacrificed something you held dear. Odin was asked to sacrifice his right eye which he threw into the well and received wisdom. Mirmir is the Nordic god of wisdom, and his well sits at the roots of Yggdrasil, the World Tree which draws its water from the well.
Having decided on what most to wish for, the wisher must stoop and drink from the palm of the hand three times, without speaking, at the same time revolving the wish, as it were, in the mind during the process. The wish must not be confided to any person however intimate until it be accomplished.
The celebrated well on Maughold Head is formed in shape like a horseshoe. Tradition has it that it represents the imprint of the hoof of St. Patrick's steed, when he took a flying leap across the Island — the healing and magic waters gushing forth as a, testimony to the virtues of the message of good tidings that he carried with him.
