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
Umm, hello? I'm sitting on a hand here. I've got wings. Of course I exist.
Why oh why do your people steal human babies and replace them with fairy babies?
We don't mean you harm, but the atheists have to have something to eat. We can't let them consume our babies now....can we?
Folks used to really fear faeries, I prefer the modern fairy myself. Maybe you guys have like evolved or something?
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.
Is it true that ringing a bell creates new faeries?
I used to love ringing bells as a kid just in case
Yes, but that's regional. Faery creation is entirely up to the gullibility of the children. Whatever they truly believe is reality on this level.
What if I tell my niece she is a fairy? She could be a fairy spirit in a human body right?
Most assuredly. Those are the nicest of all the fairies.
I am going to have to tell her that next time I see her! She will be tickled pink!
She is a really sweat and sensitive girl, a real special one!
I've always been a sucker for kids. I love their little imaginations. Tell her the fairy folk are pleased to call her sister.
She will love it!
A while back they had these caterpillars in their back yard, the kids played with them and came out with horrid rashes. She disappeared. No one knew where she was, then nanny found her. She was on the computer finding pictures of these caterpillars and as much info on them as she could so she could make a flier to warn other kids not to play with them (they had infested her area that year). Everyone thought she was off upset, she was off figuring out a way to help warn other kids to not play with them as they were somewhat dangerous. She wasn't very old then either! I have her flier on my facebook somewhere.
Can people turn into fairies is there a magical way and do fairies have magic to help nature.
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.
You probably shouldn't be out in a field if you have a high fever.
"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?" ~~ Douglas Adams
And i suppose next we'll be hearing from the religious who will say they are little angels..
It's such fun living here, isn't it? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/
No, Angels are actually very powerful beings.
Sure, you don't believe in them. But you don't believe in Satan either, so what can I say?
I guess if we told you dinosaurs existed and you hadn't found any bones yet you'd call us 'crazy religious saying there's giant reptiles.'
Seen a few "Little People" and a couple of "Leprechauns" but haven't seen any "Fairies". The little "Angels" seem to be few and far between these days.
I can image how fairies are but I have not seen a real one yet. They remind me of butterflies I see in my garden that usually has so many hornets in it so I often just image.
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.
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.
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!
check out the bit under "Changelings in the historical record" not quite the same story I remember but I could be mis-remembering the last story here or its yet another example.
Peter Jackson is taken auditions this weekend for for Pixies and Hobbits in Lower Hutt - Wellington NZ... The Fairies weren't invited to attend... something about having an addiction to chocolate cake I believe.
Yeah I see fairies every time I eat some of those magic mushrooms they like to sit around on.
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.
No, not everyone believes in myths and superstitions.
Seen too many wierd things. Freaky wierd things.
I've seen people so freaked out they were covered in goose bumps next to a huge fire on a hot night...
Stuff if you tell people like I am now they call you nuts..
Well I am nuts.. a bag of'em. Honey roasted and vacuum sealed.
On sale. At your store.. Nutritious, Delicious, Superstitious..
Bet you're hungry too.
I'll be on the shelf if you want me.
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.
Thank you, klara. I'd never heard of either of those...very intriguing!
Awww, little tree people!
I want to meet some..
I'll be good, no worries. I'll build them little mansions and let'em ride on my shoulder.
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!!!
My husband took a picture of me in the Everglades, and the way that the light was hitting and coming in through the trees, we were astonished to see what looked like a detailed fairy sitting on my head. It's truly amazing! Everyone who sees the picture asks: "Where did you get the fairy?"
You're hiding the little people..
Do they have little tv's?
That's why they like you!
Your using the flatscreen to lure them like the movie theatre's..
And then you get them to stay with an all they can eat buffet of food cuz they're so small it would still be nearly nothing!
I'll be watching for the little people...
Hey! Watch it! I'm 5'1". Who you callin' little?!
Well I've got 7 inches on ya.
[oooooo, you're so big v7.. I know I know.. lol]
The Fairies and Gnomes all now work for Hubpages and Google working out hubscore and our SERP positions; so if you want to improve your positions in the search engines or raise your scores ---- repeat after me.....
"I believe in Fairies, I believe in Fairies, I...."
children will tell you that they're real, but for adults they'll tell you that they're a figment of ones imagination. There is no real evidence of their existance, so there's not telling
The thing about children, unlike adults, is that the reason they believe is because their minds have not been corrupted by the "doubting bug".
Supposedly, digital cameras have been catching what are being called sprites, which is another way to describe the same phenomenon which the Irish and Welsh call the "little folk"

Do you believe in aliens?Do you think that somewhere out there in the big wide universe other life forms exist? Is it possible that we are not the only planet where conditions are just right for life of some kind?
by Asa Schneidermann 3 years ago
There are always new programs on cable talking about people's experience with aliens. How many people truly believe aliens exist? If you do, do you firmly believe in them, or just think there is a possibility?I ask, no, I BEG of you!! Please keep your answers SHORT. People get bored with long...

If there is a God, Why can we not see Him?Iwould first like to remove one misconceptionwhich commonly besets people with regard tothe existence of God. If there is a God, why arewe not able to see Him? This is hardly a newquestion, and we have heard it from timeimmemorial. The Holy Quran tells us...

Can you prove the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn't exist?I know this question sounds like I'm trolling but I assure you I'm trying to ask it legitimately. I see questions all the time on HubPages like "Do you believe in god?" and "If god doesn't exist, prove it." I would say...

I'm an atheist, yet I'm open-minded enough to acknowledge that God might exist. If you are a theist, are you open-minded enough to acknowledge that He might not?
