|A still from a video of about 18 fairies taken by Da-da in his backyard. Though this|
was taken through a screen, they actually twinkled like that, in silvers and golds.
While we're all waiting and transforming, we thought some of you might be interested in this. We saw some questions in the comments on Lynn and Da-da's latest Five for Friday and wanted to chime in about fairies. Yes, there really are fairies and elves and minehunes and leprecauns and all sorts of elementals. In terms of fairies, several of us have firsthand experience with our "Good Friends" (how fairies like to be referred, they hate the name "fae" as it sounds like 'fey' which means 'doomed to die' in the old UK variants). All of the information below is our actual knowledge of fairies, based on direct firsthand observation, it's not an opinion or something we've read in books.
Note: We were granted permission to use the above photo (by the fairies themselves), but they asked that we please delete the video. In it, they twinkled just like Disney fairies.
Your Basic Fairy Primer
- Fairies are elementals that are crepuscular, that is they're most active at dawn and dusk, but they can be seen at any time. We've seen them as little silver and gold twinkling orbs (as seen in the above pic), like sunlit drops of dew on leaves, but also as... well, tiny naked people with wings (many of us thought we were seeing things that day!), as well as greenish glowing balls of light, about the size of a gumball (they may have other colors, as well), zooming here and there. They can move quite quickly when they want to -- or simply vanish.
|Lynn confirmed this as a real fairy pic, from Wales.|
- Fairies ADORE playing tricks on people, like hiding things you really need (keys, phones, etc.), or in making electronics malfunction when you're under the gun (it's not funny, guys). We've also seen them make a previously opened bottle of root beer FOAM straight up out of the bottle six feet in the air when handed it to a visiting psychic!
- They are excellent mimics. They can imitate any sound very well, with practice...but there's typically something slightly off in the way they do it, at first (in terms of peoples' voices), so when you hear it, it doesn't sound exactly right... but it's really close. However, with practice, they're dead-on.
- They love gifts. (Who doesn't?) They especially like being remembered by humans who all seem too busy to give them the time of day. Specifically, they like shiny things, and fresh milk and cheese, believe it or not. Da-da once went way overboard (he should never have told us this) and gifted some fairies with a massive DISCO BALL covered in mirrors! And the fairies LOVED IT. Several visiting psychics and mediums thought this was patently ridiculous, but again, the fairies still seem to enjoy it (it's still there).
Basically, there's a whole world of magical things all around you all the time. All you need do is find a quiet place in nature, be open to the experience, and pay attention. DO NOT TAKE THEIR PICTURE. They hate that. (Da-da didn't know that at the time.) Try turning your phone OFF while in nature (and elsewhere), as elementals dislike electronics. (Also, we suggest turning all phones and wifi and computers OFF before you sleep. Try it and see what happens.)
