Fairies: Do They Exist or Did They? Have you had experiences?

    Many people for centuries have believed in faeries, fairies, or what some call the "wee folk". Have you had any experiences with fairies or have you possibly seen fairies? I've heard stories of little girls seeing fairies dancing in fields or in their very bedrooms...do you have any experiences like this?

      I for one, being scientifically based,was shown that sometimes something out there exists. Growing up I've seen unusual appearances. I've not been fortunate to have seen a real fairy.Up to now what my eyes have witnessed has been real scary. An appearance of a fairy would be a welcomed experience. I expect that this year, there will be more revelations.  There is nothing wrong with believing something or someone exists. It is through belief that we pursue that which we seek and eventually find. Look at me, my mind was changed.

      Yes there are fairies. One fairy died to save us. Another holy fairy is guiding me in my daily life and I've experienced that fairy and sometimes I hear the voices too. There is another head fairy sitting in a well to judge us after we are dead. This head fairy may sometimes take people to him on flying buffalo's, to tell us about her. And as 'Wilmers' put it, experience is the master and not evidence, and if you don't believe as I do,(I've experience and if the head fairy think you are fit, she'll reveal herself to you and its not reason but faith that does matters, as fairy want your unconditional faith) you are going to burn in eternal hell.
      PS: These fairies have a mother, daughter, sister relation, though all are one and the same!

      I do and don't believe in fairies. I don't because there's no scientific evidence to prove their existence. I do because saying that something doesn't exist is because no one has ever seen it, is poor logic. Two-hundred years ago no one had ever seen a germ - that doesn't mean it wasn't there. Besides, what if we can't see them because they're just smarter than us? I guess you could say that I'm open to the possibility of fairies and other sorts of 'fairy-tale creatures'.

      I believe in fairies/faeries/fae because they revealed themselves to me. The first time I saw one was within the wick of a candle-the flame morphed in to a tiny dancing fae and I was in a shock for barely a moment because ultimately it was so super beautiful and it honestly looked similar to what we imagine fairies to look like/it looked like the kind of fairy depicted in much art etc. Then I had an overwhelming experience with them when multiple fairies appeared and were trying to communicate but it was as if their voice was being stifled. I believe this is because we have ALMOST ran *real* magic and magic beings out of our world because many are afraid to accept their existence and have over history destroyed magic by killing or effectively banishing them like we have done to fairies to other realms of existence and forests, there are still places where they can make a home but my understanding and I have welcomed the fairies as much in to my life as willing is that we need to love and embrace them as we do human beings and rejoice that magic and fairies exist

            What you see is what you've got. Intellectually we've evolved. Physically? No need to adapt, so we've pretty much maintained form throughout the centuries.

            Numbers are dwindling though, thanks to the internet. All these threads where everyone says they don't believe in faeries....drops some of us like flies. Some people need to be more sensitive to the power of words on fragile ecosystems. smile

                    No. Fairies cannot turn into humans. There is no magical way.
                    But, you can write as many stories as you want about fairies helping nature. I would love to read them. big_smile

    Nope.  So far, at least, I've been completely sane and the only time I ever hallucinated was when I had a very high fever from mumps.

    Fairies.  Little intelligent creatures that fly around?

    Tiny creatures (think Tinkerbell) do not have the brain capacity to be intelligent in our experience of biology.  It would seem unlikely in the extreme that they could be related at all to us - even DNA would be foreign to them.  ET's perhaps?

    Larger intelligent creatures flying around?  Flying animals using similar biology to ours are very specialized, with a good deal of the brain given to the mechanics of flying plus vastly increased eyesight or other means of "seeing".  Increased musculature as well as lung and heart capacity again severely limit the amount of resources that could go to the brain.  Weight limitations also affect the possibility.

    It seems very unlikely that such things exist, unless possibility imported from somewhere else with a much different biological basis.  If they evolved here we should find other animals with the same biological basis, which we haven't seen.

      Emile Rposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I suspect you are implying that faeries are stupid. Nothing could be further from the truth. Tinkerbell was a bad example to use on some levels (she wasn't one of our best and brightest), but a great one to refute your assertion that a large percentage of the brain goes to the mechanics of flying. Fairy dust wilderness. It's magical. Read up on it.

        Ahhh.  And there I had completely forgotten the possibility of magic.  Of course Tinkerbell was magic; she even had magic dust to sprinkle around.  How silly of me! smile

    I was watching a show a while back about faeries in medieval Christianity. The beliefs were told that if a person thought their baby had been stolen by a fairy and swapped for a fairy baby they could entice the faeries to place the fairy baby upon a pyre and with the danger of burning, the faeries would appear to exchange the human baby back for the fairy baby. There was a story here in England of a man who was convinced his wife had been stolen away by the fairies when she had ventured into a wooded area (a place you didn't if you wanted people to trust that you weren't in league with the faeries). She had grown listless and had no energy. He murdered her to get his wife back, believing that she really was a dreaded fairy. The explanation on the show was that for disorders that were not understood fairies were the only way these people had to explain why a baby wasn't 'normal' (say blind or deaf). I think the wife in the story was supposed to have lost a child and was most likely suffering from depression. I think I prefer modern day faeries like Sookie from True Blood! lol

    Do you believe in ghosts? bigfoot? lochness monster? aliens?
    Everyone has their own belief. If there is something out there
    than its there. Juat a simple question someone was curious to
    ask. There will not always be proof for unknown things and thats
    just fine. If they have survived this long without humans destroying
    them thats great. I do believe there are many things that go
    unexplained and can not be proven but that doesnt mean they may not
    be there. Try not to be rude to people when they want to know something.

    People who are spiritually in tune with nature might be able to interpret that energy into visual form.  Fairies, gnomes, etc. Our Miccosukee tribe from Florida believes that the Everglades are protected by the the little tree people, some sort of NA gnome that haunts the living that goes into the woods to act in a disorderly fashion disrespecting nature. Gypsies believed in duende, which lives in nature and works like a muse, inspiring people to be creative and good in the performing arts.

    I love the idea of the Fairy Folk and all the stories that surround them. I have never had an experiance with them althought I do use a Fairy Oracle for divination. These "wee folk" are a deep mystery in our culture and have been a part of our entertainment for centuries. Whether they exist or not, I have to remain on the fence on this one!!!smile
