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!

Faerie in the Fireplace

This is a really intriguing, and ongoing, encounter I received from Jennifer in Canada.

There is a lot going on here. A lot of activity and emotion too. I have a few ideas about what might be happening, but take a read yourself and i’ll meet you back at the end of Jennifer’s account. – Kitty.

About 3 nights ago I had an unusual experience in my home. My dog has been staring and tracking something on some walls in our home that I don’tjennifer-glitter-lights-for-blog.jpg see.

I have seen some bright sparkles here and there on the walls but that was it til 3 nights ago.

At that time, I noticed my dog staring at my fireplace insert, it’s a fake fireplace. Thought that was odd so took a few pictures into the fire box insert and nearly fainted when I looked at those pictures.

There were about 6 or 7 little entities staring back at me. They looked pretty surprised I was looking at them and actually I felt that they were afraid. THEY were afraid, I wasn’t exactly overjoyed. lol.

Anywho, they moved around from photo to photo but I didn’t ever see them moving. If I caught them, they just froze. I got one pic where a big brown head was almost visible like it was materializing in there and in another it was in a different place in the fire box and in a different position.

I am sharing a picture of one of them with you. The photo is quite dark since the fire box is black inside and it wasn’t bright in the room. Not sure they are even visible in bright light. Anyways a friend of mine lightened up the photo so the entity is much more visible than the first shot I took.

Look in the middle of the pink circle I drew and the entity is in the centre. Its grey and seems to be looking down into the fire box. It’s just its head that is seen sticking out what seems to be a black hole in the side of the fire box. It has a big nose like Jim Durante’s nose was, sort of comical in look and you can see its beady little eye too.

Most people think it’s a fairy but I’m not sure, not familiar with all the types of gnomes etc. I don’t get a scary feeling from them but not happy either. I have had several UFO sightings in this area too over the years as has most of my neighbours. Weird area. We are very close to a big river, like across the street. Would love to know what you all think. Thank you.

I will tell you what is going on now with all this. Yesterday I think it was, time is blurring here, I went into my living room to get a couple of things and my back was to the fireplace where my first sighting of the beings took place, a few days before.

My little dog was sitting on the back of the couch near the fireplace. While my back was turned to it. I heard a distinct, pretty loud shuffling sound from the fireplace and right at that moment my dog whipped around and barked at the fireplace.

OH BOY!

Now the little suckers are making sounds. Sigh. I have never heard any auditory sounds from anything like this. I have had visitations from what are think are ETs and ghosts in the past and some not long ago actually but the only time I hear anything from them is when I wake up in the middle of the night and I seem to be in the middle of 2 people talking but the voices are quick.

One said once ‘she’s awake’. The other just happened last month, woke up to the voice of a woman who seemed to be sitting near my bed right around my head who just said loudly ‘WHATTT??” That was it.

I have had entities touch me 3 times since I was a teen and woke up after these events the next morning without any memory of how I got back to bed or what if anything happened in between. I am telling you this because the heads of these beings I am seeing now are mostly alien like but some are silly colors like bright yellow.

Good/bad, helpful, malevolent, I have no idea. I know nothing about gnomes and elementals but looked into that last night. If I knew they were just harmless fairies I could live with that but even those I hear can be nasty depending on the mood. If anyone has ever seen anything like the two pics I have of these beings I would love to know. Right now I don’t even really want to acknowledge them so trying to stay away from the area and maybe bore them into leaving. lol.

I am saying a prayer now given to me by paranormal investigators that basically goes straight to my Source, God, for help. In it I ask God to either release or destroy so that if these beings aren’t harmful but just lost or frightened God will help to release them from this place and maybe they can be saved. I would love that first if possible. So, see what happens.

This pic of the fireplace folk is grainy but it’s the best I could do. The big blob on the logs started out first time I saw it as a big brown head peeping over the logs, you could see two beady eyes when I first saw it. In this photo it almost looks like it has more of a longer alien type head.

On the back wall of the fireplace behind the big head you can see two what look like almost clown heads as if painted on the wall. This was not on the wall before and it isn’t now. It’s like something was trying to scare me with ‘scary’ faces. lol.

On the left there is a little yellow very Grey Alien type head but its cartoonish. Finally, on the extreme left bottom of the fireplace there is a little grey alien type head and you can just barely make out the eyes.

Well, what did you make of that? It’s a situation I wouldn’t want to find myself in, and no doubt, but 2 things spring to mind.

First, is that the ‘creatures’ are some kind of Brownie: a Household Faerie. The character of Brownies varies wildly from region to region. some attach themselves to a home, others to a family. It’s possible these creatures are attached to the house Jennifer and her dog are living in. I would be interested to know if Jennifer is descended from a Scottish or Irish family as it is said that Brownie’s from those areas attach to the family, not the home, and will follow them wherever they go, including across the oceans.

Did I mention Brownie’s are notoriously easy to offend? It is possible Jennifer, or her dog, have entirely unintentionally, offended the Brownie’s and this is why they are causing such mayhem in her home, and by extension to her life. One of my Podcasts in the month of May takes a close look at Household Faerie and I share several stories of Brownie shenanigans. If Jennifer’s situation is a case of wicked Brownie’s, I hope they soon bore of their antics and settle down again.

Of course, it is possible the house is occupied by malevolent Faerie or spirits, and I understand that Jennifer has taken some action to counter this possibility. It reminds me of a news article I read recently about a ‘haunted’ house in Ireland which caused some debate about how best to deal with it. Take a read and let me know what you think of Jennifer’s predicament. – Cheers, Kitty
