89 – When Faerie & Human Spirits Battle

by Arthur Rackham.

 

Here’s an episode for all of you blessed with a curious mind, but…

fair warning, this topic may offer up more questions than answers.

Did you know there are occasions where the Good People and Humans enter into a physical conflict?

 

Our Ancestors have reported many instances of battles between the two, usually occurring under the darkness of night.

by Arthur Rackham.

 

They are heard, not seen, but.. come dawn, physical evidence of the fighting is often found.

What on our good Earth could incite one of us to engage with one of Themselves?  It’s perfectly complicated.

 

by Edmund Dulac.

On occasion, the Good People attend a Human on their death bed, intent on receiving their spirit on death.

Humans who dwell among the Good People will do all they can to keep the Faerie from taking the spirit of their loved one.

From placing obstacles in their way, to physical altercation: this is a serious business.
