Could Fairies Have Bred with Humans?
Check out the Video & Tell Me Your Thoughts
Read More About Fairies
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 me...you 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 know...it 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 features...so 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?
- Are you a Faeid?
Faeidism or faeidry is an earthen religion worshipping and communing with faeries, elves, slyphs, dryads, gnomes, and other faery realm folk.
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.
So...to sum it up...my 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?

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 angels...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?
