114 – The Power of Faerie Music

Have you ever wished to hear Faerie music?

I certainly have, even being aware of the risks, I fear I couldn’t resist the temptation should it ever present itself to me. And make no mistake, listening to or even just overhearing music of the Good People can be dangerous.

But it depends doesn’t it, on the nature of the particular faerie…

Some are delighted to have a Human audience, while others take great offense at the intrusion and charge a terrible price.

I share tips on where and when you are most likely to hear Faerie Music and tales of those who have… and let you decide if you could resist the power of Faerie music.

PATREON

I am delighted to launch ‘Encounters with the Good People’ Patreon. If you enjoy my podcast and videos, please consider becoming a Patron, and supporting me on Patreon.

There are 4 levels or tiers within our Patreon, the first begins at only $3 per month and each level offers additional benefits and content. These range from:

  • having your name included in our YouTube videos,
  • having access to exclusive Patreon-only videos,
  • to receiving handpicked gifts from our online store or e-books, all Faerie related of course.

Did you know that many of the most famous and popular tales began as dark, cautionary tales? Our Patreon exclusive videos will lean toward the darker side of Folk and Faerie tales, this allows us to explore some of the original tales which have been watered-down over time to be kid-friendly.

I am very excited to announce our second Patreon exclusive video is available now for Patrons. It is the dark and cautionary tale of ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Robert Browning, written in 1842.

The mysterious Piper possessed of mystical skill and wisdom, was hired by Hamelin to rid the town of its plague of rats. This he did, but when the townsfolk refused to pay him for his work, he took the most terrible revenge upon the people of Hamelin.  Depending on your perspective, (if you relate to the adults or the children of Hamelin), the ending of this tale is either heartbreakingly tragic or fabulously jolly!!!  It’s a fantastic video, I really think you’ll enjoy it and it’s available now for Patreon subscribers.

Please visit my Patreon page and take a look around.

A Special thank you to our Patrons for this episode;

April Proctor, Brett Manning, Janice Silva, Tsu, Beth Bloomer, and Abby Richmond.

113 – The Allure of Faerie Money

You must have a silver penny,

To get into Fairyland…

Really? I’m not so sure.

The Faerie have a very curious relationship with money, or the thing we call money.

Did you know the Good People are known to give us money?

They are also known to tease, taunt and test us using money.

Through true tales, we discover the Faerie don’t take money as seriously as we do. For Them it is of no greater value than (and easily exchanged for) leaves or dirt.

It’s just possible that their attitude toward cash currency could teach us how to live simpler, more meaningful lives.

How? Tune in to find out…

112 – Enter the Faerie Ring

We know a bit about Faerie Rings: they are sacred places, used by the Good People for celebration and ceremony.

We know they are circular-ish and vary in size, sometimes a clean circle sometimes distorted, often made of mushrooms, but not always…

(We took a deep dive into Faerie Rings back in Episode 19: ‘Beware the Faerie Ring’ and discovered what they are, where they are and how they vary tween some Celtic Nations.)

 Some folk have been very surprised to stumble upon a ring made of flowers and stones but it might surprise you to know that there are ‘Faerie Rings’ hiding in plain sight: structures in the natural landscape which you might pass without even noticing.

There is an inexplicable thrill in seeing a Faerie Ring which is unmatched. Seeing a Faerie Ring is for many of us, a tangible sign that the good people have been there.

We might not be able to see them, but we can see what they did, and know there were there, right there where we’re looking.

We can actually touch it, the Faerie Ring, we can even step inside it, we can, but…  should we?

Join Kitty for a bit of chat about the mysterious Faerie Rings.

by Oliver Hunter.

Welcome to the dark side…..

We have covered a fair bit of ground in our efforts to know and understand the Good People.

We’ve marvelled at kind, helpful, guardian and vocational Faerie.

by Ivica Stevanovic.

We’ve pondered tricksy, manipulative and territorial Faerie.

We’ve contemplated elusive, anti-social and downright dangerous Faerie.

But in this episode, I’m taking you someplace new.

Someplace not for the fainthearted, and about as far from Tinkerbell as you can travel.

We are going to Newfoundland to share a shocking tale of Faerie torture.

110 – Arthur Conan Doyle & the Wee Folk

What does Arthur Conan Doyle have to do with the Good People?

Arthur Conan Doyle.

Plenty as it happens!

Most folk know Doyle as the creator and author of the world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes.

But there is so much more to Doyle than just Sherlock Holmes. It might surprise you to know that he was a Spiritualist, he believed in Faeries and whatsmore, wasn’t afraid to speak of his beliefs publicly.

Many might assume that Doyle, being the creator of Sherlock Holmes was an anti-social, detached intellectual, a man of science and logic, devoid of humour or compassion.

In truth, Doyle was quite the opposite, he was an open-minded, big-hearted man.

In 1922, Doyle published a book called ‘The Coming of the Fairies’ where he lay out all the evidence surrounding the claims of the Cottingley Fairy photographs but in this book, he also publishes personal experiences of sightings and encounters from people all over the world.

In this episode, we enjoy three tales which were sent to Doyle from people who appreciated his sincere interest in the Good People and accepted his invitation to share their experiences with him.

I am delighted to have an article about the extraordinary Arthur Conan Doyle in the current, and very special edition, of ‘Fae Magazine’ which celebrates the Cottingley Fairies. If you would like to get a copy of the magazine, simply click on the cover below to visit the Fae Magazine website. I hope you enjoy my article.

109 – 3 Tales of Mysterious ‘Beasts’

What is a Beast? So often we label a creature, or even Human, which we fear, or cannot explain, as a ‘Beast’.

In this episode, I share three historical true tales about mysterious creatures, which came to be known as Beasts.

Each, in its own way, brought trouble to the door of humans and to this day, we cannot be sure exactly what they were but…

knowing the Good People as we do, there is a definite sense of their presence in all three of these events.

A special thank you to our Patrons for this episode:

April Proctor and Brett Manning.

PATREON

To celebrate 2 years of our Podcast (yay! did someone say cake?…), I am delighted to launch ‘Encounters with the Good People’ Patreon. If you enjoy my podcast and videos, please consider becoming a Patron, and supporting me on Patreon.

There are 4 levels or tiers within our Patreon, the first begins at only $3 per month and each level offers additional benefits and content. These range from:

  • having your name included in our YouTube videos,
  • having access to exclusive Patreon-only videos,
  • to receiving handpicked gifts from our online store or e-books, all Faerie related of course.

Did you know that many of the most famous and popular tales began as dark, cautionary tales?

Our Patreon exclusive videos will lean toward the darker side of Folk and Faerie tales, this allows us to explore some of the original tales which have been watered-down over time to be kid-friendly.

I am very excited to announce our first Patreon exclusive video is available for Patrons. It is ‘The Twisted Tale of Bluebeard’. (Not to be mistaken with Blackbeard the pirate!).

The tale of Bluebeard, the wealthy, charming aristocrat with a disturbingly deadly hobby. This story was originally published in 1697 but its uncanny how modern the theme is, I can imagine ol’ Bluebeard’s deeds would sit quite comfortably in true crime podcast today. It’s a fantastic video, I really think you’ll enjoy it and its live today for Patreon subscribers.

108 – Are Faerie Nature Spirits?

These past few months I’ve been pondering something.

My thoughts might only be ‘par-cooked’ but they’re sound and I’m keen to hear your ideas.

Are Faerie Nature Spirits?

What are Nature Spirits anyway?

So far, I’ve come to the conclusion that, in all honestly: I don’t know. I’m not sure anyone does, or can.

 But… based on the wisdom of wise folk who have come before us and recent encounters too, I think we can form a fair notion of the connection tween the Good People and Nature.

In this episode, I share poems and tales which show how Faerie and Nature are intrinsically linked, and why it is via nature that we will come to understand, and perhaps even interact, with them.

107 – 9 Tips to Attract Faerie to your Garden & Patreon Launch

Have you ever wished there were Faeries in your garden?

You know what they say… ‘be careful what you wish for’.

In the two years of exploring the Good People on this Podcast, we have discovered that some Faerie are mean-spirited and vengeful.

Some are downright destructive, and will take great delight in pulling up your tulips, trampling on your strawberries, tipping your worm farm, peeing in your compost and pulling down your wee fairy lights.

Others as you know yourself, can be deadly.

So, fair warning, we cannot control which of the good people might come into our gardens. But… if you would still like to attract them into the natural spaces near your home, I have 9 simple tips which will help.

106 – Signs Faerie are Nearby: ‘Sensations’

How can we know if the Good People are nearby?

There are many ways we can know that the Good People are near us and loads of tales which indicate signs of their presence.

So many in fact, that I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one Podcast episode, so we will be looking at this topic over a series of episodes.

These episodes, like the Good People, are unpredictable, and could pop up anytime.

We begin this exploration with ‘Sensations’.

Through poem and 3 real experiences, we discover that ‘feeling’ the presence of nearby Faerie can be really lovely.

It can also be very distressing and is always life-changing.

Changes to the surrounding environment, as well as our physical and mental state ensure that the message they are sending us cannot be overlooked, or discarded.

Together we’ll ponder the types of Sensations we feel and the motivation of the Good People in doing this.

YouTube video – Telling the Bees

Did you know, there is a belief in Celtic mythology that the bee, the humble bee acts as a messenger between our world and the spirit realm? They are long believed to enjoy the freedom of moving between the worlds sharing messages and information. Some also believe the wisdom of bees was given to them by none other than Druids.

On this week’s episode we pause to acknowledge just how important the wee bee is to us in a practical and spiritual sense. Through tales and poems, we discover that the Good People also enjoy a close connection with the bee, occasionally taking their appearance and fiercely guarding their hives from those who would cause trouble.

We also visit the ancient custom of ‘Telling the Bees’ and find that within its rituals we come to understand how we can better live alongside the Good People.
