Leave your wands and magic potions at the door, Kitty is here to talk about the real Faeries: The Good People, The Wee Folk or the Sidhe.

Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old, clever and can be beautiful.

They are all around us and watching, always watching.

But what are they thinking?

Are they impressed by our cyber-modernity or are they quietly simmering with irritation?

In this episode, Kitty brushes away the glitter-dust and bins the stigma to take a fresh, open-minded look at Faerie and asks:wistful (2)


What is so special about Ireland that Faerie have made it their home?

Are descendants of Irish emigration more likely to encounter a Faerie?

Are Thin Places for real?

Kitty shares the story of an Ulster teenager who stumbled upon Faerie and lived to tell the tale.



We celebrate Ireland in song and poem and as always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries.

  1. Wow good episode, especially like the podcasts because I can listen while painting a room. Thin places are real I live atop a Sidhe, a hill or knob at end of a ridge. Some 300′ below a large creek. It’s waters Goes up the noth west
    then hooks left and back down other side in a sour easterly direction. From above maybe looks like a chainsaw blade. Long before they made themselves known to me, I pondered what ionic static charges held and if they may dissapate at too of knob where my home sits mainly is pegmatite ping granite with blue purple orange and yellow quarts veins course below deeper in the core.approx age of river about 200, 000, 000 back then my place would have been sitting thousands of feet below early Appalachian new fresh mountains rose to the heights that rival the tallest in the world. In my experience, the love 1. Lands hard to settle with human habitation. I mean vertical cliff walls, outcroppings and caves big plus. Water!! Running water is another tell tell sign if you found a place that meets their criteria and then you will be having an encounter. Stating intention is a good way to soften your minds control over regulating your reality. As a Fae junkie, one who was out in the woods all night with them . When weather was good I’d sleep on sand catch a few work two more quick naps by running water make us feel like 8. They advised I consider polyphasic sleep cycling since I have severe obstructed sleep apnead.
    This was the magic bullet that helped me access a more creative part of myself working long hours at night and taking 2 or three naps 1 he ior 2 max. By water edge on sandy banks with just a pillow and blanket, the Fae were always there. I always woke despite being in black bear country, cougar, black panthers, coyote, ghosts, interdimensional beings. The five acre stone gorge became my bedroom, the sand but water, my bed. and having a work to do that give you passion then that is what you do. To make it easier to get up after two hrs here and there. Your guest asked about are they safe and agree with your wisdom. While they say be safer and do that. She already has their favor
    from the sounds of it.. if she’s never went through bumpy relationship with any of them which is recommend ed for the ordeal to yield the sliver or gold Nugget stone or value of having a blowout with one to witness first hand how they react. Or overreact is suitable term for starters, lol. Always enter their domain with silence respect and most of all, to me is mindfulness, if ones thoughts and thought streams. When they hide stuff the laugh, I yeah yeah, ha ha now wear is it I’m reminded to reflect what I been doing when I put them there, etc.
    That’s their medince for me which I’m gonna spill some beans , they dislike anger and tempers. As an Aries fire sign person I’d do something dumb mistake by rushing or too impulsive then mess it up then cuss. They were my anger management 101 Instructors. Relentless but glad they were. Helped me in many ways.
    I feel like I’m writing a book in your comments section, I’m sorry about this
    Thank you
