YouTube video – Ancient Faerie Paths

The Good People are itchy footed folk. They like to move and have several methods of getting from one place to another.

They are known to travel within a fairy wind, other times they hitch a ride on the back of a horse, or with a human, either on their shoulder or on their wagon. But it seems most often the Good People travel by land.

Did you know they have favourite routes to travel and these have come to be known as fairy paths. Though unseen by us, the Good people travel upon these paths whenever it pleases them to do it.

It is from numerous recorded accounts, that we know just how fond, and protective, they are of their well-worn paths. They have no patience for humans who think to obstruct or interfere them and don’t hesitate to take drastic action against people, and structures, which do.

We ponder why Fairy Paths are so important to the Good People and what we can do to help maintain them. Kitty shares some tips on how to avoid building on a Fairy Path and if it’s too late, and you already have, what you can do to placate the Good People.

YouTube video – Banshee Sightings

‘How oft has the Banshee cried?

How oft has death untied?

Bright links that Glory wove,

Sweet bonds… entwined by Love.’

In this episode we delve a little deeper into the mystery of the Banshee and ponder: why she calls for the dying, and how does she choose who to call?

If you have not been introduced to the elusive Banshee, please tune in to Episode 3 of this Podcast: Banshee: Harbinger of Death or Spiritual Companion.

You know, at times we Humans can be dwell in our own heads, not noticing what is going on around us. So it is, at times, Banshee must employ various methods to get our attention when foretelling a death.

And, it seems, when she can’t be there in ‘person’ she even employs another creature to deliver the message.

Through true recorded tales of Banshee sightings, we get to know this extraordinary Faerie a little better.

YouTube video – Faerie Butterflies

There can be no doubt some animals possess a particular connection to the Good People. Creatures familiar to us who communicate with the Good People, or who, from time to time, the Good People might appear to us in their form.

The Crow.

The Hare.

Perhaps too, the Fox, Cat and Dog: all creatures with great presence, strong bearing.

But what of other creatures who fly under the radar?

Who specialise in silence and stealth?

Surely, they are just as useful to the Good People?

Indeed they are! And this week we take a very close look at just such a creature: the Butterfly.

The connection between Butterflies and the Good People is long established. They are known to bear messages and warnings to humans of danger and death, but did you know they also bring messages of hope and encouragement?

From tales of our Ancestors and one very modern tale, we come to understand the delicate relationship between the Good People and the glorious creatures we call Butterflies.

YouTube video – Problematic Pixies

The Pixies of South-West England. Mind you don’t call them Faeries now, for they have fought and won a war to earn the title of Pixie. Thankfully, a Faerie war is a rare thing, but it does leave us with many questions…

But what does a Faerie war look like?
What weapons do they use?
Are Faerie/Pixies killed in a Faerie war?

Kitty takes a look at the unique landscape of south-west of England and ponders why the Pixies are so fixed in, and territorial of, this particular location.

We take a stroll with a fella who was lucky to survive being Pixie-led during a terrifyingly heavy mist and consider the close relationship between Pixies and horses.

As always, Kitty reminds you that, not only is it okay to believe in the Good People, it probably makes you a better person!

Have you ever been Pixie-led? Or know someone who has? Kitty would love to hear your experience. You can contact Kitty at glassonionstories@gmail.com

YouTube video – Halloween Night

Join Kitty for a traditional Halloween Night of days past.

A night filled of ghosts and Faeries, music, games, poems, scary tales and flying cabbages awaits you.

So fill your glass and sit back beside the crackling fire. Smoke from burning pipes is whirling about the ceiling, children titter, old folk tut. Food and drink abound as the darkness of Halloween closes in.

Will the children find courage to go treat or treating at their scary neighbours cottage?
What happened to the young men who sought out the Good People under the Hawthorn Tree?
Who were those mysterious cats who entered the cottage and stared, silently bemused, at the people and their strange customs. And why did they disappear at the mention of the Puca?
And… we know that ghosts of those departed are free to visit loved ones on Halloween night, but have you ever wondered what happens to the ghost of someone who has their body stolen and divvied up by bodysnatchers?

Find out, and join in all the fun of this extraordinary Halloween Night with Kitty.

YouTube video – Halloween – Faeries and Spirits and Ghosts – Oh My!

Bin your plastic masks and candy cauldrons, it’s time to talk about the real Halloween. You can be sure: Halloween, or All Hallow’s Eve, is far more frightening than any costume or horror film.

All Hallow’s Eve falls on the Autumn Equinix. It is long believed that this pause causes a brief suspension in the natural world. For one night, our world and the otherworld slips, allowing Faeries, Spirits and Ghosts to pass between with ease.

What?!
That’s right.

On the night of Halloween, Faeries, Spirits and Ghosts enjoy absolute freedom. They can go anywhere, and do most anything they please.

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

Others though, have been waiting, biding their otherworldly time to pay a visit to someone who have 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 are unpredictable and can be deathly dangerous.

On this night… when the dead and the living mingle, anything can happen and canny folk will take precautions to protect themselves.

Kitty looks at what can happen on Halloween and shares loads of customs and tips to help you navigate your way through this spooky night to see another dawn.

YouTube video – The Pooka – with Guest Steve Lally

Strap yourself in, we’re in for a grand ride!

Steve Lally, international storyteller and best-selling author, joins us today for a session of poem, music and a rollicking classic tale of the dreaded Pooka!

You know sometimes someone is just born for one thing? Growing up in County Kildare, Ireland, it seems Steve was destined from a young age to be a teller of tales. His late Grandmother was a Storyteller, and it was clear even from an early age, that he would follow in her footsteps, as he gathered up stories like corn and stored them all away.

Well he’s all grown up now and as takes his stories far and wide. As you will hear yourself, he is really passionate about breathing life into storytelling and folklore., and sure they have never been important than they are in these now, in these unsettling days.

YouTube video – Hungry Grass

It is long believed that when a person walks on a certain patch of grass growing on a mountain or field, they would suddenly be struck down, weak with hunger on the brink of collapse.

If this person were not to eat food quickly, they might succumb to the hunger and be too weak to move or even call for help.

This is known as the Hungry Grass and, as with the Stray Sod (episode 53), could effect anyone.

No matter if they had walked the same patch of field or mountain a thousand times before, if they stepped on that patch of grass, they would be struck down with terrible hunger.

On this week’s episode, we ponder why the Good People might do this?
Is it just a practical joke played by the Faeries?
Is it done as a form of punishment?
Or could there be a higher purpose to this strange phenomenon?

YouTube video -Faerie Blacksmiths

Some say the Good People are repelled by iron.

I’m not so sure….

There are many accounts of Faerie knocking on the door of a Human Blacksmith seeking their services for to shoe a Faerie Horse. The Faerie often stand by and observe the work of the Blacksmith: seemingly intrigued. Perhaps they are studying Blacksmith techniques or dare we imagine… they impressed by this noble trade?

Common too, are tales of Faerie simply taking over the Blacksmith’s Forge themselves for to undertake the necessary work. Usually under darkness of night and away from prying eyes. But they are heard and sensed. What work are they doing in the Forge? Simply shoeing their horses or perhaps constructing or repairing their own tools and weapons?

On this episode we discover:

The quickest way to identify a Faerie Horse and

If a Human Blacksmith should accept payment offered by the Faerie.

And, through true tales, old and new, ponder if the Good People look favourably upon those Humans who ply a trade and put in an honest, hard day’s work. Do they respect and value humans who work hard, who choose a trade, no matter if it is Blacksmithing, Coffin building, Basket weaving or even Storytelling, folk who continually build on their skills and in the doing, help others. Tune in and make up your own mind!
