I named my Teddy Bear 🧸 after a faerie that used to spend time with me in my bedroom ‘Hollamanco’. I still clearly remember exactly how she looked sitting on one of the shelves on my bookcase.
The faerie folk have been a wonderful presence and source of guidance and support in my life… the kind ones that is. I see them both with my physical sight and with my second sight. Many times they have been the bestowers of healing, advice, and wake up calls 🙃, musical and poetic inspiration, locators of lost items and wise teachers in expanding my understanding of nature, the earth and the cosmos. It isn’t just one sided, I also give to them in anyway I can 💗
Froud’s artistic depictions of them are the closest I have seen to how they visually appear. They definitely come in many shapes and sizes and exist all over the world as they coexist with nature and the elements. Generally humankind’s relationship with the faeries has been eroded in conjunction with our connection to nature. Mostly faeries are now seen as childish fantasy; a view that is quite comical to me because they are as intrinsic to my experience of life as are the trees, birds and air. My ancestors knew and understood them, thus in a way I feel it is a part of my cultural heritage and legacy to remind people of the faerie’s existence and importance. They are at the heart of nature and the Scottish name for their realm of existence is elfame which means ‘land of the living heart’.
When we love and care for ourselves and nature we come closer to the faeries and the magic of their realm.
I wonder, what connection do you have with the faeries? I would love to hear about it.
