So You Want to Live With Faeries?

There has been a shift in recent years about beliefs in the supernatural. Events and beings that used to be considered occult, with the terms supernatural and occult having bad connotations. Today, there is a wider acceptance of these things. More and more people are willing to openly discuss visits by relatives who have moved on, spirit guides, angels, faeries, other nature spirits, and more.

This setting has encouraged faeries to become more interested in humans, even cohabitate with us. In some ways this is good, in some ways maybe not. But then, even when it may seem like it’s bad, it may be good. Faeries are like that.

If you are not sensitive or intuitive about non-corporeal beings, that does not mean they aren’t interested in you. If you are just beginning to develop these senses, then befriending faeries is an excellent way to cultivate these gifts. They can help you.

Care for Your Home

Taking pride in your environment is essential to creating an inviting home to faeries. One should keep things tidy on a daily basis and deep clean every few days, or better yet start a rotation cycle of cleaning. For example, bathrooms are cleaned on Monday, dusting is Tuesday, those big disasters on Saturday, and so on. Furthermore, make a habit of cleaning up after the task you have just completed so messes do not accumulate.

Keep in mind that if faeries move in and things get messy for too long, then they may misbehave.

Care for Your Plants

Even in a small living environment, one should keep balance with nature by maintaining healthy plants, indoors or outdoors. Faeries often live within or nearby plants. People with a green thumb that can miraculously grow gorgeous plants are communing with faeries, whether they are aware of it or not.

This does not mean you have to become a master gardener. It only means that you should nurture any plants that you do have and keep their surroundings healthy and free of weeds, and don’t forget to water them.

Care for the Environment

Recycle! Every little bit helps! Be kind to animals. Be polite to people. Be charitable. Do good deeds; one every day. Think of more ways to produce positivity in your world. Faeries really like this.

Play Music Often

and sing and dance too

Play

Be creative. Doing any kind of craft work is especially admired by faeries.

Make time to play games. Laugh and have fun.

Watch movies. Faeries are particularly fond of movies by Hayao Miyazaki, but will watch anything, as long as it’s not too scary. There are warriors in the faerie dimensions, so reasonable violence is not an issue.


These basic lifestyle choices will also foster a warm environment for you, your family, and your guests. If faeries do move in with you and you do a good job promoting a human-faerie habitat, be aware that they may invite their friends or family to move in too. Eventually, you may even have your own faerie posse that follows you everywhere. Children often have faerie friends who stay with them for years.

      I have been fascinated by the possibility of the existence of faries ever since my mother showed me a patch of moss at the base of a huge tree and said "this is where fairies play". Years later I actually met a woman who was one of my customers who shared with me that as a child she and her sister watched fairies romp on the mantel in their bedroom.

      I don't want to live with the fairies, I want them to live with me! :)

      Lilleyth - Thanks for sharing.

      leann2800 - Faeries move in with humans of course, but there is the issue of which came first, humans or faeries. So the question arises, are they living with you or are you living with them?

      Well, I just moved into this house. So, I guess the faeries were here first if they are here :)

      If you sense things around you, then yes, they may have been there first. Good for you - they can be very helpful, well mostly. I am working on a new hub about daily living with faeries. If you are interested, I'll let you know when I'm finished.

      Agreed. I read and study a LOT about what faeries like and what they don't like...I'm trying to make my home a faerie-friendly one lately as my faeries seem to have tapered off. I've rid my altar space of salt and iron...my home is a happy and friendly one...I don't have or grow any herbs that they dislike...I don't know how else to get them to come back. Any suggestions? You're a medium...do you see something I'm doing wrong?

      Kitty - Are you able to interact with them? If you are trying to communicate, but it's one-sided, they may think you aren't truly interested. Faeries are masters of subtlety perhaps you are inadvertently missing their messages to you. I learned a LOT about how to communicate with them from the Faerie Oracle cards by Jessica Macbeth (art by Brain Froud.) Another thing to try is to talk to them as if they are corporeal and see if the answers pop into your head. I feel like there's something more...I'll let you know when I figure it out.

      Well, I asked for a sign that they were there this past weekend and got a butterfly flying next to me and things of that nature. I guess I'm just aching for something bigger...

      Kitty - I have a lot of information coming at me right now about this for you. I haven't sorted it all out yet, but will get back to you as soon as possible. Do you want to send me a direct email so we can exchange other contact information? I think I have a tab on my profile for email?
