YouTube video – Phantom Faerie Lights

When is a light not just a light?

The Good People are masters at evading us. When it suits them, they can be impossibly elusive: appearing as nothing more than a shadow in the corner of our eye, or a feeling, a sense, within us that they are nearby.

But what happens when they are so caught up in some activity, that they forget to shield themselves from Human eyes?

On this week’s Podcast, we look at 3 true accounts of Faerie using extraordinary forms of light, crafted into spectacular presentations, and guaranteed to capture and hold the attention of passing Humans.

Did the Faerie intend to ‘show off’ their mad-skills to these Humans, or was it just a lapse in their concentration?

We ponder the source of these peculiar lights. Are they proof of the Faerie being ‘Nature Spirits’? Are these lights born of energy drawn from surrounding hills, trees and rivers?

102 – A Faerie Highland Choir

Hiking in the Scottish Highlands in treacherous weather conditions, Paul found himself in grave danger. Although he had taken every measure to ensure his safety, he was well aware the situation was precarious.

As he settled down for the long, dark, wet and windy night before him, he heard a sound.

A single voice.

Quiet at first, then building to a sea of voices, a crescendo of choir and music.

He wasn’t alone.

This week we share an incredible true experience from a listener of this Podcast: Paul from Scotland and ponder why the Good People stayed with him until dawn. Were their actions motivated by kindness, or did they have wicked intentions?

Join Kitty to hear this amazing true story.

An Act of Kindness by the Yunwi Tsunsdi (the Native American ‘Little People’)

 

Blue Ridge Mountains, North Colorado.

I was reading some of the stories on the Encounters with the Good People site and I thought I would share one of the stories from my Father in Law.

He was full blood Cherokee and was born in a log cabin where the Blue Ridge Parkway runs now. Every year he would get his Christmas money by walking through the mountains and collecting ginseng.  At 80 years old he could still out-walk most young people who he occasionally took with him.

One day he was out and walked miles and miles through the mountains, but was not able to find any ginseng. He was a man who rarely got angry and did not curse at life. He walked to places he had found ginseng in the past, but there was nothing.

He was amazed and dumbfounded. He always found ginseng.

After many hours he decided he should take a break and he sat down on a rock to rest and eat the lunch my Mother in Law had fixed for him. He looked around and sighed and then, as he always did, he tore off part of his sandwich and set it down, along with a piece of his raisin cake, then poured a bit of his drink out.

He thanked the Little People of the forest, Yunwi Tsunsdi, and offered them that little bit of food. When he finished his lunch he lay back and drifted off into a nap.

He didn’t sleep long. When he woke up he looked around to get his bearings and discovered he was surrounded on every side with ginseng.

He had never seen so much of it in one place.

He gathered all of the ginseng that he needed for Christmas, thanked the Little People and headed home.

Sean.

Was this a sickly or dying Merman?

I lived in Victoria BC Canada and often spent time at a popular place called Clover Point. I was just playing and climbing over the huge rocks that circled the round point. It was spring but a cloudy day a bit cool. I was 10, (I should point out I was a very quiet, mature, smart child) and I came up over a rock and suddenly saw the most bizarre thing on a few rocks in front of me.

It was looking right at me, and I had about 60 seconds of looking at this being before it slipped back into the ocean in an awkward way. It kind of flopped on its side and awkwardly wiggled off.

This is what I saw: I would say it was about 6 feet tall , its skin was a very sickly white/grey colour, very pale and wet, it did not look healthy.

It did not have legs it had conjoined legs or a tail type lower body, it was slimy looking and had a stomach and chest like a man, and arms like a man, but the arms and hands were longer than a mans, and thinner.

The hand I could see looked very large in proportion, it had full webbing between its long thin finger bones, and seemed to have dark or black nail/claw? Things on the tips of its fingers, the stomach and chest area appeared sunken in, and he just had this look of either extreme illness or old age. He was so pale with this whitish/grey slimy skin, but he had very large noticeable veins, they looked blackish.

The bottom half of its body was a darker grey. The worst part was its face: it was so odd and ugly, its face was flat and had angled eye slits with black eyes and 2 angled slits for a nose flat in face and a flat but gaping mouth.

I didn’t see lips, it reminded me of the bottom of a sting ray (we don’t have those to my knowledge). Plus, this was sitting up leaning on its hand.

It’s face was wider than it should be in proportion with the body, similar to the way a hammer head shark has a wider head, but nothing near that extreme.

It had about 5 big slits joined by a piece of webbing between its jaw and bottom of its neck. It had a very very short wide neck.

I didn’t see any hair or even scales, just that gross pale, whitish/grey, slimy, wet skin, but it did have a rounded back of its head not flat like the face.  The look on the face had no expression and the mouth was just slightly rounded gaping open, it turned and looked at me. We stared at each other (I was frozen in fear, shock and amazement).

There is nothing in our oceans that could even resemble something like that, and as I lived 3 blocks from the ocean, I was very educated about our sea life. I tried to tell my friends Dad what I saw (he and my friend were flying trick kites on the grass area way above where I was climbing on the lower rocks) he just insisted it must have been a seal or a sick seal.

It wasn’t. I have no idea to this day what it was, I’d describe it as a sickly alien/merman hybrid? It was ugly and strange, but I never felt threatened. Eventually it just awkwardly kind of rolled over and weakly wiggled down to the water about 10 feet below, and went right under the water and never surfaced again.

I didn’t go back to that area of rocks for years and I’ve never forgot every vivid detail.

No idea what I saw but it was no known marine animal/fish etc. It was not a man or a diver (I say male as no breasts). So that is what happened. This is not imaginary or mistaken identity.

I wonder if anyone else in the world has ever seen anything like this?

If it was an actual Merperson, should they exist, they are not magical and pretty!

Patti, Canada.

The Fairy Rose

I have a farmers market stand (I raise herbs, offer plants, arrangements, herb crafts, herbal soap.. just a little assortment of folk type garden crafts). It was a busy Saturday, and I like it when the old timers come through because they are usually in a good mood and share garden and farm stories.

A woman came up looking at the flower arrangements. She sort of pushed others aside, and was very insistent.

What is this flower? What is this? My father passed away and these were at his funeral. What is this flower? Oh, I need to know this flower!”

As my own father passed away just 2 weeks earlier, this immediately got my full attention. And my mother passed away 2 months prior, and I had taken a vase of the same flowers to place near her casket during the funeral, because dad always picked her roses from the yard.

I figured she would want to buy the arrangement.  As she looked up at me, I looked into her eyes to speak..

Each eye was different colours. The left eye was brown, hazel, and grey. The right was brown and grey. She was small, older, dressed in layers even on the warm day.

So, when she started carrying on asking about the flowers, I decided to take a few minutes to focus on just her. When I saw her multi coloured eyes I KNEW I needed to give her full attention. (Even though other customers were around my table).

The connection between the flowers she was excited about being at her fathers funeral, and my parents funerals, really stirred my emotions and sympathy for her obvious interest in the flowers.

I knew not to push a sale and didn’t want to. It was way more meaningful than that. It wasn’t about her wanting to buy them. Just pointing them out and really drawing my attention to them being very special flowers!

She in fact did not buy the flowers; but kept asking what they were, exclaimed how she loved them. She touched them, then walked off in to the crowd.

The arrangement was small, in a small vase, nothing spectacular, not your usual big funeral arrangement at all.

The flowers? They were a small miniature rose…known as “The Fairy ”

After she left, I felt sort of shook up, mostly because of her insistence on pointing out these little-known roses that had such a deep meaning to me, and at her multi-coloured eyes. I also felt a sympathy for her at having also recently dealt with a funeral of a loved one.

It wasn’t until later after I kept thinking about her, her father’s funeral reference, her excitement at the flower but not wanting to buy them, that I decided there was something extra special about her visit.  But I am still not exactly sure what.

Other than “The Fairy” rose is very, very special to me now even more so than it was before. Perhaps in the afterlife they do recognize what we do here and she was a messenger of sorts… (From my parents, hence the funeral reference?) to slow down. Life is short. Enjoy the roses.

Or maybe she was just a friendly lady excited she found a flower that brought up memories!

Ghostly Encounters

I was a tour guide and ‘man of all work’ at a restored mansion of the 1870s in Colorado.  The house was very spiritually active, with most of it being of very negative energy. The one exception was an entity who was identified as ‘Robert’ by the late Peter James, who did TV psychic work for such shows as Sightings. James said that Robert was from a later period than most of the ghosts in the house.

Unlike many ghosts, Robert seemed to be aware that he was dead, but he didn’t care, and he had fun. His favorite activity was calling people by name, usually while mimicking a voice to which he knew his victim would respond, such as a spouse or boss.

Several other people related tales about being called to when there was no one else on the premises. One lady reported entering the house and disabling the alarm just seconds before she heard him calling out for her.

For myself, the first experience I had with Robert was while I was giving a tour to some visitors. We were on the next floor up when I heard footsteps in the hallway below us, then a creaky voice called out, “Bob? Bob?”

I heard it, but no one else apparently did, and I knew it was Robert.

I just mentally projected to him, “Nice try, but it didn’t work,” and there was silence below.

A few weeks later we were expecting large crowds of visitors, so instead of me being a solitary guide, there were docents scattered throughout the house. The crowds didn’t manifest, and things got boring. I went upstairs to chat with the solitary docent on that floor.

Suddenly, I heard the boss’s voice on the main floor.  “Is Bob here? Where’s Bob? Is Bob in the house?” So of course I scurried downstairs, but the boss wasn’t there. I asked the docents who were there if they had seen the boss, and they said they hadn’t. I realized then what had happened, and mentally told Robert, “Well done, you got me good.”  And I felt hearty amusement flowing about me. I later did some checking. The boss hadn’t even been in town that day.

There was also a helpful ghost in the house, although I can’t say whether it was Robert or someone else. Visitors were always admitted at the front door, which was kept locked. There was no place to sit there, so on slow days I would wait elsewhere, but close enough that I could hear the bell, which was quite strident.

One, day I was in another part of the house when I heard someone knock on the side door, which no one but staff used. But there was no one there. A minute later, visitors came walking in from the street to the front door and rang the bell.

After this happened a few times, I noticed the pattern and realized that someone was signalling me that visitors were on their way. After that, I never bothered checking the side door when I heard the knocking; I just said, “Thank you” and went to the front door to unlock it for the visitors I could see coming up the street.

There was one other time when a spirit was helpful in that house. I was given the task of finding some chair covers that were packed in a box somewhere on the property, but no one knew exactly where. The problem was that the several buildings on the property all had storage areas filled with boxes and such.

After a few hours with no results other than me getting hot and dusty, I found myself in the attic of the main house, in a section which had a somewhat troubled ghost who sometimes caused problems.

However, I had made a point of trying to get along with him by being friendly and courteous. Fed up with my task, I said, “George, you’ve been here a long time. Do you know where I can find the covers for the dining room chairs?” My attention was immediately focused on a particular box among a stack of boxes.

I pulled it out, and opened it, and there they were, the long-misplaced chair covers.

Faerie at the Faire?

I saw one of the Good People at a ‘Renaissance Faire’ once, years ago.

Here in the US, Renaissance Faire’s are full of people in costume of the time and also of the Fae.

This Faire was in a forest with tables, tents and booths set up amongst the trees.

I was walking through the Faire with my friends and family and I noticed a person dressed as a Fae, half hiding behind a tree just a short distance from everyone else.

I stopped in my tracks and I’m sure my mouth fell open. He was dressed all in grey that perfectly blended with the bark on the tree.

His face was ageless and he was handsome but not overly so.  Something about his features seemed odd, but I couldn’t decide what it was.

There was an air about him that I can’t explain, but I knew at once he was not in costume.  He was the real thing.

He seemed surprised that I could see him and then he put his finger to his lips and shushed me. I nodded in agreement and looked away.

When I looked back, he was gone.

101 – Faerie Birds

by Lily Seika Jones

Do some Faerie, in their natural form, look like creatures we recognise as birds, or do they occasionally like to appear before us in the form of a bird? Or could it be both?

by Sergey Solomko

On this week’s Podcast we take a look at the curious phenomenon of Faerie Birds. Through true tales of sightings as well as a most beautiful poem and old Cornish Folk Tale, we discover that Faerie Birds could go unnoticed by us on a daily basis.

I also introduce a new series of beautiful ‘Encounters with the Good People’ YouTube videos: ‘Folk Tales & Faerie Tales’.

These well-known and lesser-known Folk Tales and Fairy Tales are suitable for everyone in the family. My soft, gentle reading is accompanied by lovely images and is sure to bring a sense of pleasant calm to the mind and spirit.

I feel that Folk and Faerie Tales are dreadfully unappreciated and I hope these relaxing tales, accompanied by gorgeous images will be enjoyed by curious minds of all ages. Dan and I just love creating these glorious old tales and I hope you will enjoy them too.

Wood Nymphs by Arthur Rackham – Tote Bag

This week I am featuring a design from my online store which I really love: the ‘Wood Nymphs’ by Arthur Rackham.  This is a strikingly colourful design against light and mid-coloured items.

Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a leading figure in what has become known as, ‘the golden age of illustration’.  He is also arguably the most popular Faerie illustrator of all time.

This design features beautiful shades of blue and green and a whimsical image sure to whisk you away among woodland Faerie.  It is available on a variety of products including: clothing, bags, mugs, aprons, bottles and caps.  Just click on the image of the item to be spirited away to my online store.

 

YouTube video – The Tale of a Faerie Puppy

We love dogs.

We really love our dogs, don’t we?

They are our most loyal companion but more, they are our friend, counsellor, work-mate, eyes, ears, protector, inspiration and so much more!

The Good People too, are closely connected to dogs. Way back in episodes 4 and 5, we took a sneaky peek at the Black Shuck, Hellhounds and also Faerie Guardian Dogs. That is, Faerie who either have the appearance of a dog-like creature, or take the shape of a dog-like creature.

On this episode we discover that, when it comes to dogs, we have something remarkable in common with the Good People: a long-standing bond, and deep affection for ordinary, companion dogs.

Join Kitty to hear tales of ordinary dogs which play an important part in Faerie society, and share a tale of a very special, silver-eyed Faerie puppy.
