Title: Fairies
Post by: GreenWoman on June 16, 2010, 11:26:03 AM
I've been practicing magic in one way or another for many years and in the last year or two became really good friends with someone I'd known for longer. She can see fairies and has been able to since she was a child. I've recently become aware of Fae presence in my daily life but I would like to also SEE them. From what I can understand, my friend astral projects out of her body slightly to see them. She can still see the room she's in, and the people (who now have oras) but the fairies are there as well. She's always been able to do this! It's quite amazing.

So my question then is: are there any other people in the world that can do this? I'm very interested in comparing experiences and interpretations of the Fairies (as there are quite a few different kinds that we've identified so far!) Also, can anyone confirm that this is the method they use to see Fairies? I want to learn how to see them better; I can only see them at night when I'm very tired (ie. stayed up all night writing a paper) and occasionally when I'm meditating.

Thank you!

My knowledge of the Fae is limited at best. From what I do know, the Fae are not very fond of humans and limit their contact with them. So, seeing them is not very likely unless they choose to be seen. You might try setting up a Faery house in your garden to draw their attention. Couldn't hurt.

There's actually quite a few that live in my house already! There's several that live in the bottom two bookshelves in my hallway library and one (that we still can't quite figure out as it hides in my plant) that sits on top of my TV stand. That one has a tail, and we're still trying to decide whether it's an actual Fairie or something else. It occasionally comes and sits beside me when I meditate. I always think it's my cat, but there's nothing actually there!

I just wonder if there's more people like my friend in the world! I know Brian Froud (author/artist) comes very close to drawing what she sees, so he's probably one. Have you heard of other people like this?

I have heard of many who claim to see them. Whether they actually do or not is not for me to say.

Don't know what you or your friend are seeing but I can tell tell you one thing It ain't the FEY. Believe me their are not that cute and their no smaller then us, they can also real nasty to any they,  sense are not close to their beliefs . Also they won't enter your home unless they want to get at you. Sounds like your seeing Sprites ,they like cats better then people ; and if you like (or love) cats they'll be friendly to you . oldghost

Hmm... Couldn't understand most of what you wrote there (^above post). But I know what I'm talking about when it comes to Fairies. And there are many different sizes, but they can change size as they please. They are also very nice, most of them. It's the little dark ones that aren't so nice as they feed on negative energy, but even they can be ok sometimes. The tall ones are the Nobility for lack of a better word.

I can see know that my friend's gift is rare. So I will rest my hope in finding anyone else who is knowledgeable when it comes to Fairies.

Thanks for the replies!

thanks for posting this, oftentimes i'll be alone and thinking about somthing or other and i'll have a feeling that i'm being watched, but when i look around i don't see anything but i can't get rid of the feeling that something is still there, a few years ago i started trying to turn my head around really quickly to catch them in the act and all my friends were startnig to say that i was crazy but i almost got glimpses except for this one time when i tuned to fast and i blacked out and needed four stickes in my forehead and had a to wear a neck bracelet for three weeks because i sprained it so now i just have come to peice with the fact taht fhey are really there and leave cookies out for them but although they selldomly tkae them, i now know i'm not crazy and am a lot happier as a result and it's also nice to know i'm not the only one

When I was about four years old, I saw a Fairy, swinging on the handles of my Grandfather's wheelbarrow. It was small, (about two feet tall) and had a faint green tint to it's skin, pointed ears, and seemed totally oblivious to me. I stood there watching it for about five minutes, and then I remember my Nan calling out that dinner was ready. I remember what it was, it was Roast Lamb, and it was on a Sunday.
The thing is, I didn't remember any of this until I was 25 years old. But I didn't exactly forget it either, because once I'd remembered, it was like the memory had always been there, but I just never recalled it until I was 25. Very strange.

thats an awesome story, i love when i suddenly remember stuffs from the past which i had forgotten for many years, its like i have memories from when i was about three and four but because my personality grew and changed so much that the connections and old ways of thinking were superceded by schools and rote learning, i dunno if that makes any sense but i think it's awesome anyway!

Yeah, I like totally get that! It's like school has to teach you how to unlearn stuff, before they try and teach you other stuff. And none of it is very useful either. I can remember bits of stuff from when I was about 10 months old, like in my pushchair, but people say that's not possible, but if it's not possible, then how can I remember it? The mind is the new frontier, but no-one admits it, because that would be like admitting they are igronant about something. But igronance is the only state of mind to be in, if you want to learn anything.

About 12 years ago, My friend Maggie, who was teaching me about herbs, took me to this place called Goose Lake about 1/2 hour from my house. We were walking around while she was identifying plants...later, we stopped to have a bite from the lunch basket. We rested on two boulders. While eating and talking, I saw something on an Angelica plant right in front of us, I looked at Maggie and asked if she is seeing that too...she was. We wached, what looked like a faery hovering around the plant...we watched it for a good 20 minutes so we got a pretty good look. It was about maybe a 1/2 to 1 inch tall with distinguishable head, arms and feet. We have told this too just a few people...we don't know if anyone actually believes us and I don't care...we know what we saw. It was the coolest most tranquil thing ever. I have never seen another yet.

Sorry to say this, but I must admit to being rather confused by faeries/fairies.  :-\

I've heard many people say that they've seen or conversed with them, but the descriptions they give are very different in each case. Some people describe them as small beings, pixie like; other people describe them as human sized and grand, like the Elves from The Lord of The Rings, and there are other descriptions I've heard too.

Are there different types of fairy? Are faeries and fairies different types of related beings, some being small and others human sized? Some stories I've heard say that the faeries were The Sidhe of ancient celtic lands, who left this world when the age of humans began.

Perhaps I'll understand more if I actually meet or see them.
Title: Re: Fairies

I am no where near an expert on faeries but I have read that there are all kinds and sizes with different looks.
Title: Re: Fairies
Post by: Serpentium on July 10, 2010, 01:17:09 PM
I'm of the opinion they are part of the same phenomema as Aliens, Flying saucers etc, and they appear to people using whatever frame of cultural reference is uppermost in the psyche of the witness. There are lots of similarities between Aliens, and Fairies. Greenish skin, pointed ears, gifts that disappear in the morning, missing time, bright unexplained lights, abduction,
strange sexual practices, cross-breeding programs, 'recovered' memory, strangely sunburnt skin of victims, the list goes on. In the USA, 200 years ago, people reported seeing strange flying 'ships' in the air. These ships were like seagoing ships, with sails, and there was even one report of one that got it's anchor entangled in a Church Tower.
But there is never any physical evidence left behind.
The Peri of ancient Persia would abduct humans on flying carpets, Khidr, the Green Man, would appear to people in the Middle East, and they would suddenly find themselves hundreds of miles away, with no memory of how they got there. The worlds myths are full of such encounters with these beings, and they all share threads of similarity.

But yeah, I seen them, and it still beats the shit out of me!

I agree with your last statement. That has been my struggle for the last while. I would like to see them and talk to them, but unfortunately my attempts haven't been going so well. Firstly, I can't astral project yet, and that seems to be the key to actually seeing them from what I can tell. And second, I'm starting to think that it might not be possible for everyone to see them. I'm not entirely convinced by the whole "if they want you to see them, you will" because I've had a few experiences now that have suggested they wanted me to see them, but I haven't. I think we have to "unlearn" a lot of our beliefs before we can truly let go and accept what we cannot see. I think most of my battle is in convincing myself that I can learn to see them. It's amazing how much we self-sabotage without knowing it.

And to answer your other questions; Yes, there are many different kinds, sizes, shapes, etc. I'm not the best authority on the subject but my friend has taught me a lot from her experiences with them. I'm not sure how much I can or should tell you about them; they're a little...what's the best word... shy? cautious? I know what I know because my friend has confided in me, but I'm not sure how much they would be happy with me telling them. I'm not afraid of angering them, it's just not my place to teach anyone about Faery (if you read this F, maybe you can tell them a bit about it?).

I know that must be a disappointing answer, so I will say this; from everything I've experienced, I KNOW that there are Faeries in the world. I know that there are many different kinds and that I am constantly being surprised by the the extent of that hidden world. I know that there are positive and negative aspects to that world (I won't say good and evil, because nothing it 100% evil or good) and I have learned to recognize some of them and adapt my own abilities to protect and deal with them.

I'm just really excited to see that this thread has finally taken off! I was discouraged at first that no one had come forward with any stories, so thank you all for sharing!

Dude, GreenWoman, you don't need to astrally project to see fairies, wtf? Just make an open statement giving them access to your house/garden/etc. Leave out some (real) honey and some (real) milk or other yummy treats. Then watch your peripheral vision. It may take awhile, try not to get all fashed and lathered about it - relax. Make your home/garden/wherever an inviting little haven. Some potted plants or pretty flowers in the house, etc. You might want to make it clear you don't appreciate your stuff being 'borrowed' beforehand.

Ya, I understand that. I already see them in my peripheral vision as there's lots running around my home as it is. What I would like to do is see them as my friend can see them. She has a rare gift (I talked about it when I posted this topic) and from what we can tell, she hovers just out of her body a little to see them. She does it automatically, so she basically is always moving in and out of her body on an average day, so it took some figuring to understand what exactly it was that she was doing. That's why I want to astral project. I don't appreciate the "wtf" Curiosity.

They certainly can be small and cute, when they so choose, although sprites and pixies are more likely to.  And the one's I've seen don't like cats much at all (the sprites and pixies that is) cause cats try to eat them.

When you start to look at it all as being  connected, there is so much that ties in with it. Men in Black, Cryptoid Animals, Springheel Jack, Chupocapris, Cattle mutilations, Jersey Devils, Green Men, Blessed Virgins, Angels in the Sky over  battlefields, (The Somme, Agincourt) Valkyries taking Warriors to Valhalla, Dragons, etc.
I find it really helps to remember the Law of fives at this point, And start looking at something else instead for a bit.    :)

Aprox. 15 years ago, the uni period, I was spending much time with Tarel, a French friend who initialy introdused Wicca to me. Between exams and studies she was trying to help me with ways to project myself. Thing didn't seem to work for me though. The very last afternoon we were hanging out at her porch and she got inside to receive a phonecall, I saw something looked like a faery only ugle one... It seemed only natural to hallusinate due to minutes of sleep because of reading.. As it felt natural I had a conversation with that creature in my head, we communicated through thoughts... She (or he) complained about my fellow student in various ways and reasons.. (S)He had issues with her mainly on her attitude towards the house, mooving constantly stuff around, decorating and so on..

Tarel returned from her phonecall and I told her my illusion. All I can say is that she just didnt like what she heared..
I didn't pay more attention back then because the idea of my imagination compare to all that sleepless period was very solid..
I am intending to reseach it more nowdays that I have some free time and the will to do so.. Should I have any results I will get back at you. Should you find out more, I would like to hear from you..

GAH!!! my session timed out while I was typing evidentally and now I have to retype everything!!!! (I need to remember to change that next time I sign in.)

I believe that there's a HUUUUUGE difference between what we've labeled 'fairy" and what ACTUALLY is Fey/Faerie.  "Fairies", I believe, are actually sprites, pixies, brownies, and such; I agree that they don't like cats because our feline friends tend to try to eat them.   The Fey are..... well, it's already been covered here and they tend to not really like humans unless they have a schedule for something.  (not what I wrote the first time but I'm too tired and my brain hurts and Tony--my male kitten/cat--is attacking something by the baseboard and Ziva is staring at something by the patio door)

You emphasised a part of that definition that was written wrong, elf in, really? WTF. Is an elf in something?

Using somethign from a large university is one thing, ie Princeton, but using some ignorant author's fantasy series to support your stance that fey = fae is dumb. That is like my saying that kobolds are tiny little reptile men because that is what my 3.5 MM has them as.

At least curiocity bothered to post his/her source of information. Valid or not, its for all of us to bother to decide.

But then again my last name isn't Princeton to get offended....

Maybe you should be more explanitory. Your last post could be read as "at least she posted her sources unlike you" which is false or as "at least she posted her sources so you know where she is coming from"

I chose to look at it the first way. Considering I already addressed what I thought of one of her sources, the fantasy novel series.

....
I don't hunt down. Should you want to use a defense filter on my quotes towords you, it's totaly your matter and certainly your choise indeed... Thats all for biasing I guess.

Maybe it would suit us both if I just never again answered a post of yours.

I think this is the 3rd time you have said that.

Why do you keep rplying my posts?

Do you enjoy my comments?



1. Actually I haven't. I vividly remember that a certain 'attitude' was a key-factor in my word.
2.3. Yes I do.
       The analysis lies in my initial post in Intro.

Most of the comments here describe faires as being small; however, is it possible or likely that they can be as large as an average sized person or even larger? Or is there another being similar to the actions of a fairie- as described in this thread (disappearing when you try to look at them, changing size, sensing them but not actually seeing them)- that is about the size of a human- or taller? I ask because I think I have had a few experiences with a being similar to this.

Personally, I'm of the opinion they can be any size. I think they are part of a particular phenomena, that can change their appearance according to the frame of reference of the observer. So if you are of a traditional, "Cottingly Fairy" persuasion, you will see little Olde Worlde dressed girls, with little butterfly wings, and bonnets, if you are of more of a Tuatha de Daanan person, you will see The Host of the Sidhe, if you are a UFO nut, you'll see Greys, or Men in Black, whatever cultural reference sits best with you. In the USA, you might see a Jackalope, or Elvis, or a Thunderbird.

"Also, you might wanna talk to your cats about eating fae critters, if they're dumb enough to do so. That could lead to some serious indigestion and stolen keys or dead flowers and such."

If this is true then I am in some serious trouble.  My kitties get mighty frisky at times and I always wonder....... and why the world DID those flowers just up and die.  No slugs or snails were visible and there was not a shred of evidence of disease either.
 
I have to say I am one of the disbelievers.  But, (and this is a huge but), since I do believe in all types of energy sources, and that there are things that we cannot account for in our lives (missing keys that you KNOW you had in your purse because you are practicing a new habit to be more reliable), I have also got to say that everything is possible.

All that is living carries an energy source.  I like to think it is linked to our souls.  And when our bodies die, our energy is released into the world, maybe to become another human, but certainly re incarnated. So if you think on, like finds like. If our energy is out there without a body and their energy is out there traveling through dimensions we cannot see; maybe we have a lot more in common than previously thought.

I also agree (head nodding while typing) about the alien references and what could be the Fae.  One more wrinkle. What if it is an extreme case of evolution and they have merely found a way of time travel?  That could essentially be us from the future. Large eyes to better see the computer screen, long fingers to better type with, small mouths because we hardly eat leading sedentary lives in front of the computer, and no sex organs because we all procreate in a pitre dish! Something to think on, eh?

Hello Green Woman,
I do see faeries. I've been meditating and doing my best to do pathworkings and I can tell you that some do appear more clearly than others. I don't really know their names yet, but one is the Storm Lord, and every time the winds blow, or the rain falls, I open my study window for a moment and in he comes. I think they fey are starting to contact us because they want us to help them take care of the environment. The planet is dying and it needs us to do our bit to take care of it better.
Best,
Tasneem

I tend to think they have no form of their own, and take whatever shape they can from the observer's mind. Cultural references change over the years, and so do the descriptions of these creatures. Today, the U.F.O and Alien phenomena are probably the most reported. There are many similarities between Alien encounters, and Faerie encounters. The pointy ears, green skin, missing time, abduction, strange sexual assaults, lights in the night, gifts that disappear as soon as the encounter is over, (Faerie gold, Alien Technology) Also, the likelihood of repeat encounters, the ''recovered memory'' syndrome recounted in both instances.

Well I am not quiete sure if they are faries but it all started when I began to watch auras of things and then these orbs of lights, really small maybe smaller than a tennis ball keep always floating around me and everywhere I go. They shine in different colors, from light blue to red and white or sometimes yellow.
  For a time I thought maybe I had some problem with my vision, because every time I look up at the sky I see infine amounts of sparks so it is really sad I cannot watch the sky freely because these sparks shine so much.
  Anyways one night (in my room I try to cover every possible hole so no light can get through) I was staring up at the ceiling and these vivid red orbs began to float around, I kind of got scared because when I was little three giant green orbs cornered me, so I assuming these might be erhmmm...faries???

I have.

I never said you personally did. That is why I said "As an aside", meaning that comment was tangential to the conversation at hand.

Dear Gushy Females In This Thread,

Please stop making women look retarded. Plsthxdiaf. Why does every single media portrayal of ANYTHING have to be rated as a sex object? Men do this shit and you bitch about it. Then some turn around and start acting exactly the same thing - only with more giggles and squee and less belching and penis-measuring. You suck.

Disgruntled,
- Cat.

Dear Disgruntled Cat,
        Aren't you over-reacting a bit? I can't speak for anyone else, but I was just joking around. Did any of this thread merit you telling us we suck & should die in a fire? I'd also rather not be lumped in with the "bitch when men do the same" group. I object to that generalization. Show me where I've complained about jokes about women or guys posting about hot actresses. Hell, half the time I chime in!
I realize my sense of humor tends to run on the crude, immature side most of the time, so if anyone is offended by what I've posted so far ITT, (or elsewhere for that matter) I apologize.

Sincerely -
        A cheeky tree :-P

Sadly most of the time Hollywoods portrayal of almost anything in this world is not anything close to the truth. They have defiantly tried to romanticise vampires.

Speaking as a man, I have no problem with being objectified by women.
But I do resent being used sexually by Vampiric Fairies. They masquerade as normal hot women, but always leave me feeling drained, listless, and in need of amphetamines.
And succubus sex is just plain raep. As anyone who has ever woken to find one of these monsters riding them can attest. And don't even get me stated on Crocodile women. *shudders*

Willow was sweet, and cute too. Cordelia was far too "up herself" in Buffy, although as a character, she matured nicely in Angel. And Buffy, I just wanted to slap her. Professing to be some kind of a Vampire Slayer? How did she do that then? By attempting to "Lurve" them to death? (Spike, Angel, and who knows how many more we never got to know about?)

I have only seen one fairy in my life.  It was a summer day. I was sitting on my front porch in which there is a flower garden right in front of my front porch. I was sitting their just enjoying nature. I was relaxing after a hard day at work. I was just sitting there relaxing when I saw this what looked like a miniature women with little wings fly fast out of the garden torward me with a smile on its face. It paused very briefly before it shot straight up and over my house to I do not no where. I jumped up and ran around my house to look for the fairy. I never could find it. For days I could not believe what I saw. But my eyes where not wrong in what they saw.  In my experience I believe that it is the fairy that let me see it and not that I could see it.  Ever since that day I look at things differently.

I've never heard of them disliking the color red before.  Many faeries, such as leprechauns, were believed to wear red coats prior to people associating green with them.  But there's such a huge variety of faeries that it may be true with some.  I'll have to research that some more.

Hm well there's a chance she was mistaken. I'll ask her where she heard it from and see if it's a reputable source. I've been trying to research it but I can't seem to be able to find anything on colours. It would be nice to know though because my parents bought some red paint for the door but I somehow convinced them to hold off on painting it just yet because I don't want something that would discourage faeries from coming. If you do find anything I would greatly appreciate it since I can't seem to be able to find anything at all.

Traditionally, all the libations (saucers full of milk, etc) people left out for the wee folk, were specifically to stop them coming and messing with you. If (And I'm deliberately leaving the door open on this) they do exist, they are the last people you'd want to be involved with.

I've been practicing magic in one way or another for many years and in the last year or two became really good friends with someone I'd known for longer. She can see fairies and has been able to since she was a child. I've recently become aware of Fae presence in my daily life but I would like to also SEE them. From what I can understand, my friend astral projects out of her body slightly to see them. She can still see the room she's in, and the people (who now have oras) but the fairies are there as well. She's always been able to do this! It's quite amazing.

So my question then is: are there any other people in the world that can do this? I'm very interested in comparing experiences and interpretations of the Fairies (as there are quite a few different kinds that we've identified so far!) Also, can anyone confirm that this is the method they use to see Fairies? I want to learn how to see them better; I can only see them at night when I'm very tired (ie. stayed up all night writing a paper) and occasionally when I'm meditating.

Thank you!

Turn on your light switch. Instant daylight. Your heating. Instant summer. Or hot water tap. Luxurious heated water. 
Where do you think all that comes from? Electricity? Fairy blood.
We have been using them for generations now, to power our modern world. Hydro electricity? from mashing up Undines through Turbines. Wind turbines? Sylphs. Fossil fuels? Gnomes. And fire? Salamanders. All the elementals are now being harvested like wheat. Trapped and channelled along copper wires to fuel our homes, manufacture our technologies. Getting used up to power our love of the internal combustion engine. The decreasing numbers of wild Fairys are not too well disposed towards us. Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Floods, are all attempts to redress the balance a little. So next time you want to 'feel their energies' people, stick your fingers in a light socket. Or short the poles between a car battery with a rod of iron. Iron has always been known to disrupt them, but copper traps and enslaves them, because of it's lower resistance. Gold, with it's resistance of zero, traps them inertly, and the power is then transmuted into another kind of magic. Economics. A glamour. A spell that makes people value a worthless metal.
After all, what good is gold? You can't eat it, or drink it, you can't carry much of it around. It's too soft to use for tools, and gives no useful chemicals, as it cannot oxidise. Yet it can bankrupt whole economies, drive men mad, and makes people fall in love with it.
So next time you think about fairies, try not to think of them as little winged, pointy eared Tinkerbells, (A Tinker was one who worked metal) but as Slaves, purely valued as industry driving captives. Now do you still wonder why they hate and avoid us?

Arne I was referring to the 18 century asylum in England . Wonderful place , chained you to the wall and there you stayed . A man could commit his wife just on his say so or parents their children ; in most cases it was for life . If you weren't crazy going in you would be in a short time. They closed in the early 1990's.

And were relocated in Gotham City, as The Arkham Asylum.

From where it spread like a virus, infecting every political institution it came into contact with, before finally being put down in a bloodless coup, by the Golden Apple Corps of the Legion of Dynamic Discord in the year 2015. (Remember, I called it first)

As EBS already knows, my first post on this forum was about fae types stuffs. Something in that area was bothering me, but they seemed to have buggered off after i placed some crystals by my windowsill. Quick question, Are goblins the same as fae/fairies?

There are many schools of thought on the whole "fairy tale creature" idea.  Many believe, as do I, that they are all some form of Fey.  Note the difference,  human and humanistic beings are Fae, mystical creatures with wings and other such types are Fey.

Then there are those who will argue with you that anything that is not human in form is simply a mutated or deformed animal of some sort. 

Then we get the alien crowd.

I was raised that all "mystical" creatures were a type of Fey and in the end, they were all governed by Faerie.

Please feel free to tell everyone how I am wrong, it is one of your favorite things to do right?. 

I'll make sure to send your information to all my cousins and aunts and uncles and let them know my grandparents didn't know what they were talking about once you enlighten me with the correct information.

I'd actually like to leave you both to discuss the matter but I know it wouldn't last. You are both intelligent, experienced and wise in your paths and you both have so much to offer. It bothers me to see things getting out of hand, so I decided I wasn't going to let it happen any more.
 
I will emphasise here that I will take no sides in this or any other matter, but I won't have any more fighting either!

I don't mind hearing both your guys knowledge of the Fae. Just as I'm sure most others here wouldn't mind hearing two sides.

Oh wait, now I'm NOT wrong?

How can that be?

I mean you said I was wrong, right up there ^^^^  did you forget?

Please enlighten everyone, it is after all one of your most favorite things to do besides call me names. 

You can't have it both ways.  You can't make your little comments then not have the balls to follow up.  As for your not having been talking to me, as I was the only one who gave an opinion who else were you talking to?  Invisible posters?

YOU OG made this bed, now you have to lie in it.  You chose to chastise me on something that had nothing to do with you in more than one thread, make a thread again telling me how terrible I am and it wasn't the first time you did it and I'm sure it won't be the last.  And now you make your little snark assed comments and think what?  I'm going to tuck my head and cry?  Don't flatter yourself.

Answer the boy, YOU are the one who made a statement.

Faerie rings are predominately the domain of Ireland and Scotland with origins deep in Celtic lore; however, Celtic lore is also prevalent in America and I was interested to know how widespread are Faerie rings in the US?

I have been shrunk down to 3 inches tall (along with my daughter) and met SEVERAL fairies over the course of a year. In fact, at one point my daughter played Pixie Tag with a Garden Fairy. It was HILARIOUS! Other than that, I have no expert opinion........

I have spent much time walking in the woods around my area.  I have come across stones, sticks, plants and mushrooms arranged in circles in places where it could not have been manmade.  Are they of the Fae?  I don't know but knowing what little I do about them, I leave them be.

I wanted to reply earlier, but couldn't since the topic was locked.

I don't mean to bash anyone, or step on toes! This is only my opinion (based on some research)

In Dutch, a "Faery/Fairy/Faerie/... ring" is called Heksenkring (translated to English a "Witches circle"). It has no connection to Faery/Fairy/Faerie/... in our language. In old times, people who came across a witches circle, believed that was a place where witches had held rituals. It IS said, though, that entering a witches circle can be dangerous. That once you enter, you can get "locked" inside and won't be able to get out without help... The reason WHY you won't be able to get out, I didn't find out.

It could be that Faery/Fairy/Faerie/... make you stay inside the witches circle. It could also be something completely different. I, for one, know I will never deliberately enter one. I wouldn't want to take the risk to get trapped...
I am curious though, what would happen if you entered one without knowing it?

I have never met Fae/Faery/Fairy/Faerie/... Tales about them have always intrigued me, but from your posts, I don't know if I would actually WANT to meet them.
