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.

YouTube video – Acts of Faerie Charity

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.’

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…

“Alone with your voices” by Marc v/d Meulen

YouTube video – Should I eat Faerie Food?

To eat or not to eat?

Is it safe to eat Faerie Food?

The answer is perfectly complicated: yes, and no.

That is to say, it depends.

There is a long-held belief that if you consume food or drink offered by Faerie, you will be bound to their realm for all times, never to return to your family and friends.

How do we know this? Because those who have accepted Faerie hospitality and never returned have warned us!

To add to the confusion… we discover that declining food or drink from the Good People can be as dangerous as accepting it and ponder what it is about Faerie food and drink which affects us so.

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?

*Hi everyone, I have a mild cold and I’m a wee bit husky. Please forgive my voice for being a little inconsistent in this episode. Cheers, Kitty.

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.

YouTube video – Faerie Celebrations

The Good People enjoy a party as much as we do, probably more, and more often too!

How do they celebrate?

And what does it mean for us?

The Good People don’t observe our ‘festive’ calendar so it follows they don’t celebrate Christmas, New Year or St Patricks Day. But… there are so many sightings and encounters with the good people at play that we know they enjoy sumptuous food and drink, music, dancing, storytelling, games and a song and dance.

It sounds fabulous doesn’t it?

So why is it that some people who stumble upon, or are invited to join in a Faerie celebration end up disfigured or dead soon after?

YouTube video – Changelings behaving badly

Let’s chat about Changelings.

Ever wondered how the Faerie catch a Human child and replace it with one of their own?

Or what those sickly, withered, ever-grumbling Faerie imposters get up to when their Human ‘family’ aren’t around?

In this week’s episode we take a sneaky peek at 3 true tales of Changelings and discover that understanding of the Good People’s wicked ways and knowledge of methods to thwart their trickeries, can be found in surprising places.

Would you like to refresh your memory and know all about Changelings?

Simply tune into these earlier episodes of my Podcast.

Episode 6: Changelings and Abductions – Bridget Cleary.

Episode 7: Changelings and Abductions – Michael Leahy.

Episode 8: 5 Old Tales of Changelings and Abductions.

YouTube video – Faerie and the Afterlife

The Afterlife: It’s perfectly complicated.

We think we know a bit about it, but do we really?

There may be so much more to learn.

In this episode, Kitty asks you to put your notion of the Afterlife to the side, just for a bit. Through tale and poems, we take an entirely non-morbid look at death and what may follow after.

Together we discover that the Good People might play a part in ‘life’ after death for many Humans and ponder:

how the Good People decide which Humans will stay with them after they have died?
if Humans we regard as ‘Spirits’ live on among Faerie, what does that tell us about Faerie?
is it time we take a fresh look at the notion of ‘Faerie’ and ‘Death’?

Join Kitty for a chat on this most curious topic.
