Could Fairies Have Bred with Humans?

Check out the Video & Tell Me Your Thoughts

Okay, so I'm sitting here on a Friday night and I had a fantastic, albeit crazy theory pop into my head. Now bear with could think this theory is totally off the deep end...or you might truly agree with me. The question and theory is:

Is it possible that fairies have bred with humans?

What? Fairies breeding with humans? Who even ever proved that faeries exist or existed? No one, really. (Look, I never told you this theory was a fact, did I?)

First of all, let it be known that I not only believe in the existence of the fay (or faeries), but I KNOW they exist...even to this day. This absurd thought hit me while I was browsing youtube...watching my favorite artist's amazingly artistic videos. And who is that artist? Lady Gaga, of course. How does the idea of faeries breeding with humans correlate here?

Well, Lady Gaga looks and feels otherworldy to me. She always has. I've been a humongous fan of hers for years now, and I went to her last concert that came around last October and was totally blown away by her talent. I literally thought while I was at her concert (and I was in my right mind, mind you), "she is so incredibly talented...she can't be human". I actually thought at one point that maybe Lady Gaga was not human...maybe she was an alien. Insane? Possibly...unless you've been to one of her concerts.

Besides the insanely out-of-this-world talent and unique artistic ability that Lady Gaga possesses...what about how she looks? Something as mundane as her appearance actually looks the exact opposite of mundane. It looks...well...otherworldy. She looks like an elf to me. Yes, I sounds absurd. But compare her picture to pictures of the fay that have been painted for centuries. Watch the video below and you'll notice tiny fairies flitting about her while she first appears as a ballerina in the video. By the way, I noticed that effect AFTER this theory hit me. Synchronicity? Irony?

Do I think she knows this? No, probably not. Most people think the belief in fairies is grounds for admitting someone to a mental ward. But, I do think that people who have possible faery blood have different sets of abilities than most humans do...or maybe they just tap into abilities that every human has...just more easily. I also believe that they might look a bit different than the rest of us. Does Lady Gaga look like a "normal" human being to you? Look at her elven-like, it's not even funny.

I can bet that if we began to look at other talents and outstanding individuals on this earth, that more and more might appear to be otherworldy...or possibly have some faerie blood running through their veins.

Sookie! Yes, Sookie Stackhouse from the HBO series "True Blood" is a character from a book that is said to have mixed blood. Blood of that of human and blood of a faerie. Maybe the author of this book series was tapping into a theory or belief that actually has some fortitude to it. What do you think?

Faeids - This Theory Existed Before Me!

I decided to google my crazy theory and found that this theory actually existed prior to me thinking of it tonight. I should have known that my idea wasn't original! (Laughs out loud). Anywho, apparently the idea of "Faeids" is the idea that faeries intermingled with humans hundreds of years ago and made faery-human hybrids. These hybrids have passed a bloodline of faeries down throughout the centuries, leaving some people in the world to still have the blood of the fay. The question is...who has the faery blood and who doesn't?

In the year of 2000, there was a movement of people who believed that they were indeed Faeids, and that it was their sole duty to grab society's attention and help them to acknowledge the existence and power of the faerie folk. Now, I'm not one to judge, especially since I have insane theories such as this; however, I have to say that if this theory is a possibility...I HIGHLY doubt that people (even as intuitive as some might be) would have any idea that they are part faery. And if they did and some faery godmother came to them in their dreams, it's probably not a great idea to go prancing around town telling everyone that you're part-elf.

A. They'll think you're a total nut and want to Baker-act you.

B. You'll sound pompous and sound as if you are above regular "humans".

C. You might really peeve off the faery folk. Humility goes a long way...especially with the faery folk.

The fae don't want some pompous, ignorant human running around the earth claiming to be one of them when in actuality they are not. sum it theory is that Lady Gaga and many more people in this world could very well be what theorists call "faeids". Am I a faeid? I can only dream.

Stories of Fairy Brides

If we look back to legends from Scotland, we find the story of the Fairy Flag at Dunvegan Castle. Seeker7 actually tells the tale beautifully in her hub "Mysterious & Haunted Artifacts". Dunvegan Castle is located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland and was the clan MacLeod's stronghold for centuries. There is a legend surrounding an encased and rather battered flag that tells of a MacLeod who falls in love with and marries a fairy woman. She gives the man a baby and then has to return to her faery-land, leaving her family behind. Apparently her child comes into danger and she returns from faery-land briefly, only to wrap her child in this fabric that came to be the fairy flag of Dunvegan Castle.

The family and many others believe to this day that their family did indeed breed with a fairy. So this means that they must have at least a tad of fairy blood running through their veins!

And take into consideration the story of the Goddess Rhiannon from Wales. Rhiannon was a fairy princess who married a human prince in Wales, giving him a son. This story is very interesting and one of my favorites, but the reason I point it out is because there are many more tales like this...tales of fairy princesses being swept away by human princes. They marry and have children just as any human beings would. Are these merely legends told from fanciful, superstitious people or do they have some truth to them? You can read more of Rhiannon's story by clicking here.

We must never rule out the possibility of these things happening. As much as science likes to disprove these theories and the belief in supernatural beings, we must remember that not everything will be proven or disproven. It's not meant to be. What fun would there be in the world and what creativity would be left if all we did was disprove our beliefs in the supernatural world? That would mean there would be no more fairies, no more ghosts, no more imagination. That would also mean that there would be no God. So for now, even if this theory is whacky, at least I have fun thinking about it...and maybe that makes me a fairy just because.

Elemental Souls: Soul Origins?

Recently I found that there are people in this world who believe their souls are reincarnated from other lives in which they lived as fairies. These people are called Elemental souls, and there are more of them in the world than you might think. I know one elemental soul who believes she was a fairy whose job was to protect fire...she was what is called a "salamander" which is an elemental spirit who is a guardian of fire in the Wiccan faith.

In addition to being a re-born fairy, there are other Elemental souls such as: reincarnated leprechauns, water spirits such as mermaids, elves, brownies, and so much more. The stories may seem far-fetched to those who have not known fairies, but to those who know the fay it is not a stretch at all. The more I learn about Elemental souls, the more I believe in them. This is but one piece to the soul origin puzzle. Are you an elemental soul? Could you be a faeid?

I believe I am part Fae. However, Lady Gaga absolutely is NOT. No faery would EVER wear a dress made out of MEAT!!!

Oddly I have just been pondering this myself, and found your post here.

I keep wondering if a person could indeed be fae and not realize it.

Glad you mentioned True Blood! I have watched all the seasons and love it. There are so many plots that parallel my current spiritual beliefs. When I first started watching it was just entertaining, then I began to find my spiritual self. Rewatching the series, all I could think was, "Wow. Whoever created this show must really have had some vividly similar visions and experiences as me." Not that it's a perfect portrayal, but the ideas are so out there; the faerie sub-plots, the idea of vampires in general, some of the other god-types and spiritual stuff on there is so real to me now that I couldn't believe how much of it was in the show and I never realized. Could be a coincidence but I too believe in such things as fact so I though it was kind of unreal to see these things in a tv show.

Wow lol this was such an honest hub. I have to say the theory of Faery and human intermingling has been around for a long time.

Though the question is how often does it occur today?

I think Lady Gaga does look a bit strange and her whole aura is really different, but I like it. I love her music most definitely it's very theatrical. The Fae theory for her is new though...but her eyes do have a far away look to them like she's not quite here all the time.

There may be mating between both species, but it could be mistaken as alien "abductions". The Fae weren't always one to ask for love or permission...

Anyway fantastic hub!!

I guess we all know people who are a bit other worldly, or even elvish. Who knows what kinds of "people" were running around way back in the day? A smaller kind of people, a tribe with a certain look, and a culture that was not really understood so seemed magical. I really enjoyed this hub and thinking about such stuff is a lot of fun. I love where your mind goes.

I believe that there is some overlap here, but that they're definitely not all the same beings. This is not only based on personal experience, but also on input from fellows in an assortment of different metaphysical communities.

Dagny - I have researched that angle thoroughly, combined with the information I often receive from "others" I have learned it is very likely that angels, some "aliens" and the more advanced fae are all one in the same. I have even delved into greek gods being in the same group of beings that have just been given different names at different times.

I'd agree that faerie encounters of old and alien encounters have a lot in common.

Strangely enough, well it has to be strange coming from me! lol! I have been called Elf ears since I was a kid. I have pointed ears at the top of each ear, so over the years I got called elf ears, fairy ears, even goblin ears! haha! that was my mum god bless her! so yes its possible, lets face it we didn't believe in the 'little folk' until the homo floresiensis (hobbit people) 3 ft tall little people were found back in 05, so who knows? great hub though! voted up!

dagny - You're too sweet! Too bad we don't live closer. :( I never thought of the nephylum from the Bible but that is a REALLY good point you've brought up. I believe that much of the alien abductions were actually faeries instead. Not to rule out aliens either, but it just seems that the faerie encounters of old times are very similar to the alien abductions of modern times. Thanks for reading & commenting.

Kitty...I love your hubs and your ability to open the veil through well researched legends and documentation! I know the Bible talks about "nephylum" or angels which bred with humans. Perhaps they are one and the same....angels, fairies, aliens...or all versions of the evolutionary process of an ancient time when humanity was much more in touch with the spiritual realms.

Thanks, Catherine. I don't define "any unearthly creature" as a faerie, I know the difference between a ghost and an angel and a faerie (and of course there are more). I'm strictly talking faeries here.

Catherine Kane profile image

Catherine Kane 4 years ago

A lot would depend on your definition of "faerie". Some folks define any unearthly creature as faerie, but there are quite a number of supernatural beings that are not, strictly speaking, faeries.

Lilleyth - Thanks for sharing! I hope she wouldn't find this offensive, but I think she's the cutest thing ever. Definitely makes you think.

CR - I've never heard the report of an earthy/cinnamon smell...but that REALLY makes me think it's the fae and not aliens at all! If you look at Brian Froud's artwork, much of his artwork depicts faeries that could easily be mistaken for aliens if someone today was to come in contact with them, and yes there are many stories of humans being taken by the faerie folk centuries ago...similar to the alien abductions of today. Thanks for sharing! I'm pumped!

CR Rookwood 4 years ago from Moonlight Maine

I think it's a credible theory for sure. Jacques Vallee, a UFO researcher who thinks that the 'aliens' are from right here on earth, has suggested that the fay might be one and the same with the grays. The fay can change their form to suit whatever they are up to, and can cause changes in consciousness and perception in humans. Stories of being taken by fairies are very similar to alien abduction reports. Finally, facial shape and the eyes of the gray aliens are so unusual, and so similar to fairy folk that it makes you think. People often report an earthy or cinnamon smell in the 'spaceships' that reminds them of being underground--again makes you think of the fay.

Wow, now I'M all charged up about it! lol!

EinderWolf - I'll have to check them out. Thanks for sharing and thanks for not knocking my crazy theory. :)

B. Leekley - You always have such interesting comments. I truly enjoy them. I've actually been watching a series on youtube called "The Fairy Faith", which is sort of a documentary that interviews different people in Nova Scotia, Scotland, Ireland, and England and gets their accounts of faerie sightings. It's very interesting. You might enjoy it, as well.

RNMSN - You might be right...maybe her inspiration & creativity comes from the fae, though? I could see that being the case. Her songs are even reminiscent of that..."marry the night", etc.

bborello - Very good points you've made. And yes, you might be inspiration as of late must be coming from the faeries. All I can think about lately is faeries and magickal things. :)

Lilleyth - What children are you talking about? I'd love to look into that! I'd like to believe that they are descendants and not the other way around. And I think I'm going to hold onto my theory of Lady Gaga being a faerie. It's just fun. Thanks for reading. And yes, I believe the faeries around her were purposely put into the video, I just found it interesting that I had been thinking about her being a faerie and then boom! There they were!

Lilleyth 4 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

I just played back the video, and yes, you are right, there appears to be fairies flying around GaGa when she begins the ballet scene. Surely that is something added to the video! If not, that is amazing.

Lilleyth 4 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

I have chills, which my Reiki Master friend, Ervene, calls "the chill of truth". The first time I saw those children with a syndrome that gives them a look similar to a fairy, the thought crossed my mind that perhaps this was where the reports of fairy people started, by people witnessing these tiny children, who were probably sheltered from the world. On the other hand, perhaps these children are descendants of the fae. Yes, the Lady does seem otherworldly. Terrific, thought-provoking hub. I voted up on everything.

bborrello 4 years ago from Oregon, USA

I don't know about Lady Gaga, but according to my sources humans and fae did co-mingle, there isn't much of that heritage left in today's world. It has been a VERY long time. More often artists are inspired by the fae unbeknownst to them. Our dimensions are more easily accessible to each other and artists are especially attractive to faerie intervention or inspiration. Perhaps you feel that way more and more?

Years ago I read a book by a man who claimed to see different sorts of fairies. A search finds other such books. Was the man lying, delusional, hallucinating? Or did he see fairies -- such as one type that from invisibility gradually before his eyes took on shape and form, including a quaint medieval costume or another type in the air enjoying a strong wind and many more? To me it is like the situation of a tone of a tone deaf person being told by a person with perfect pitch of the wondrous music being played by an orchestra or being made in nature by birds and flowing water. From the perspective of the tone deaf man, the man with perfect pitch may or may not be telling the truth. That's why on the question do fairies exist I'm an agnostic.

I had no clue about this theory before now, though I do find it interesting. As a practicing Mage and believer in the fae myself, it does spark the question though. Whether or not they exist, one will never be able to find out, however if you look at Margaret Weiss and Terry Hickman's picture in the back of the death gate cycle's novels that they wrote, they look like elves as well. Not sure if it was only because of those books in particular or something else but thought I'd point it out.
