For The True Believer
Looking for faeries:
When the faeries come close to you, are you aware that they are there?
Do you find this to be frustrating?
There are signs of faerie approach that you'll want to consider if you truly want to see them:
A sudden unexplained trembling or whispering of leaves
A rippling of water not caused by fish or aquatic creatures
A small dust devil at your feet
The unexplained bending of blades of grass
The feeling of an insect walking through your hair when there is none
Bouts of uncontrolled laughter
Feeling unexplained chills and goose flesh when alone in nature
An unexplainable loss of time
Acknowledge these happenings as evidence of the presence of the fey, and they will reward you.
The best time for faerie approach is all of the BETWEEN times.
Equinoxes and Solstices, especially autumn and spring
With practice, you can learn to spot or sense faeries and elves
at the edges of woods while walking along the road at dusk or dawn.
The very best places for faerie approach are the BETWEEN places:
Where streams divide
Intersections of roads
Beaches and seashores
Fences and border hedges
Above all, don't give up. Always be aware. They watch you, you know.
Though they're a mischievous lot, they are kindhearted and may allow you to see them.
But they must be shown proper respect.
They are fiercely loyal to each other, and will be to you if found deserving.
They will never trust anyone who lies to them, or betrays their secrets.
Blabbermouths are not considered friends.
And above all, we must all respect nature, which is their home.
Gifts are greatly appreciated, such as food in the form of grains, honey, and milk.
Just pour it on the ground. They will find it, and enjoy a feast.
Look for your gifts in return:
A lovely fragrance may follow you
Someone may be moved (by faerie glamour) to give you a hug
Or a compliment may find its way to you
Or a crystal
A lovely feather
A glittering rock or stone
A string of good luck
Show your respect for them by avoiding their mounds.
Avoid cutting down their trees!
Attract them by telling stories.
Laughter attracts them,
As do bright colors
Also children who frolic and play.
Areas where nature takes its course can be a meeting ground, if not their home.
Let plants grow!
The fey gather where there is joy and laughter.
Fill your life and home with them!
