98 – Telling the Bees

by Arthur Rackham.

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.

‘Telling the Bees’ by Hans Thoma.

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.

97 – Pity the Hare-Hag

by Maggie Vandewalle.
by Maggie Vandewalle.

Hares have long been associated with the Good People, not only as a form the Good People often take while mingling among us, but also with folk who are considered to be ‘touched’ with knowledge of the Good People or who actually interact with them.

These folks are often given names or labels like wiseman or wisewoman, healer, mystic, Witch or Hag.

While they may be well regarded and their knowledge sought after, they are just as often shunned from the community too.

Occasionally, we have found that a wise-woman, known to be familiar with the ways of the Good People, is actually one of the Faerie living among Humans. How do we know this?

Because she is revealed to have also been taking the form of a Hare! A creature with a great many skills, but also prey to Human hunters.

by Maggie Vandewalle.

Join Kitty for 2 incredible tales of the Hare-Hag which tell us tell us as much about our own Human Nature, as they do about the Good People.

96 – The Tale of a Sneezing Mermaid

Mermaid Sightings. There are 3 things common to most every Mermaid sighting: the person lucky enough to spot a Mermaid is alone, the sighting is brief and… they are almost never believed.

Well on this week’s Podcast, we turn all 3 on their head.

In fact, this could be the best account of a Mermaid sighting you will ever hear!

On this week’s episode we share an encounter with a Mermaid which was witnessed by 12 people (at the same time) who were able to share a detailed description of her appearance and behaviour.

And more…

the Mermaid herself knew she was being observed and seemed to enjoy the attention.

Join Kitty for tales and chat about the ever-elusive Mermaid and discover it’s okay to believe in Faeries.

95 – Faerie Armies: When 2 Tribes go to War.

The Good People have been around a long time. A really long time. Think of a long time, then multiply that by a really long time. You’re getting close.

If you believe, as I do, that they are an intelligent race, (or group of tribes or clans), who have lived these many long ages, it follows their societies must take on some form of structure, some rules, or boundaries.

Their society cannot be a complete free for all: if it was their carelessness and recklessness would result in them exposing themselves to us regularly.

So it is that, from time to time, (not as often as us of course) the Good People enter into some form of conflict.

On this week’s episode we listen to accounts from people who have witnessed the Faerie marching in procession, just as a Human army would, and engaging in battle.

by Errol le Cain

We ponder what Faerie battles might look like, what weapons they may use and if, even during conflict, they continue to protect the natural world.

94 – Faerie Lake-Horses

There are worlds and creatures unknown to us, lurking in the deep waters of sea, river and lake.

In this episode we explore one of the Good Folk who is known to dwell on both land, and in the dark, deep lakes of Ireland: The Water Horse, also known as the Lake Horse.

Many of our Ancestors have witnessed a Water Horse lurking far out in the middle of a lake, often silently watching the activities of nearby Humans or stealthily stalking them.

Others still have seen Water Horses graze peacefully on grass bordering the Lake.

We share a tale of one such Water Horse who did not appreciate being disturbed by nearby fishermen and angrily chasing them before returning its their watery home.

Some particularly courageous/reckless/desperate people have even captured a Water Horse and made use of its immense size and strength to help with manual labour tasks.

Through true accounts we discover that this usually doesn’t end well…

On this week’s episode we share several tales of the Water Horse, or Lake Horse, and ponder if they are dangerously territorial of their Lake home, or if they are simply caring guardians who take their duty most seriously.

93 – 3 Cases of Faerie Light Phenomena

by Brian Froud.

When is a light not just a light?

Unknown Artist.

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?

by John Atkinson Grimshaw.

92 – Halloween: Tales by the Fireside

by Jean Baptiste Monge.

Halloween: that one night when most anything can happen.

Sure, you could chance your luck walking the dark night, among Faeries, Ghosts and Spirits who roam freely and unhindered…

or you could tuck up cosy with me and a few friends, as we share Halloween poems and true tales by a crackling fire.

Remember, on this night, All Hallows Eve or Sahwain, when the dead and the living mingle, anything can happen.

Some Spirits may wish for nothing but to visit loved ones, enjoy a little music and hospitality.

 

by Olivia Steen.

Others though, have been waiting, biding their otherworldly time to pay a visit to someone who had offended or wronged them in their life, and unleash a little payback.

This is when things get scary.

And the Faerie? Well as we know, they can be deathly dangerous and are unpredictable at the best of times.

But it seems at Halloween, they let their guard down and are more likely to be seen or encountered.

I hope you can join me and discover a few of the wild things that have happened on November Eve, all from the safety of good company and candlelight. Lovely.

91 – A Selkie Cove

by Stephanie Law.

How often has someone encountered, seen or sensed, the Good People and told no-one of their experience?

Sometimes, we have an experience which might be saturated in clarity, emotion, intuition or sixth sense but…

with no tangible evidence attached to it.

Nothing to prove it happened.

Sadly, thanks to social media, it’s so easy nowadays to be criticised or ridiculed for speaking openly and honestly about an inexplicable experience.

On this week’s Podcast, we share an experience from one person who knows just how that feels!

Blair from the U.S. shares his extraordinary, palpable experience with us.

Traveling in the north of Scotland, Blair set off early one morning for to watch the sunrise.

Never could he have imagined what would happen that cool September morning on the shores of a deserted beach cove.

Join me as, through old and new tales, we explore the glorious, but elusive, Selkie.

90 – Faerie Charity

by Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale.

There are times, brief pockets of time, when the Good People are so pleased with a Human, that they bestow charity upon the person. This may take the shape of a single gift or a benefit which lasts a lifetime.

by Arthur Rackham.

Before you go hoping this happens to you… first know that you must pass a test of your character.

A test based on the values of the Good People.

You may not know it is a Faerie testing your character.

You might not rate the task they have asked of you as being of any importance.

But you can be sure it is important to Them, and your response and personal values, is of great interest to the Good People.

On this week’s episode we ponder why, from time to time, the Good People put us to the test?

 Could those who have been tested and who have pleased the Faeries be ever favoured by them?

If enough of us share core values with the Good People, will that result in greater interaction with the Faerie?

Join Kitty for tales and chat about charitable Faerie, you may just think twice next time a stranger asks a favour…

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.
