Theres people out there who believe in faeries and other nature spirits. Some people think they inhabit another realm and can come into ours when they want or at certain areas and time, others think they are physical beings. I personally have never seen any, or any evidence of such beings. I'm skeptical about their existence because of this but remain curious at the idea of the hidden spirits.

I was wandering if any of you have had any experiences to share?

Nope. Never have.

It is a nice fantasy to indulge in but quite another to try and pass it off to others as real.

One time, when I was about 6 year olds I saw a Gnome. My Mother quiet quickly corrected me saying:

"Son, he is not a Gnome, he is a little person. People are different and some people are born to grow little"

So that being said... Nope never seen them..

My Grandmother swore she'd seen them in the old country.. I've looked into the myths and ledgends of them myself and found it fascinating how old legends and lores regarding the Fairy folk bridged languages and countries.. Never seen one myself. but crazy as it may sound, I'm not willing to dismiss them as a fancy.

Fairies are true beings not just fantasy.  I have seen one once in a garden where flowers bloomed up through winter snow.  They clearly interact with the very real flowers and so are physical beings.  Their existence is no more bizarre or obsurd than belief in ghosts, dark energy (physics term), or belief in any place on earth you have never personally visitted.  Don't be close minded.  Most mythology is based on fact at some level.

I know nothing of the sort, but that being said, I cannot say they absolutely do not exist, as that is just as ignorant a statement as saying they absolutely do. I have however been told that when my great grandmother lived in Amesbury, Mass(long dead to hear the accounts from directly) insisted that a gnome lived by her house in the brush, she claims it approached her on many occasions and she would often leave food for it on her steps, only a few times could she say she actually saw him take the food but it was always gone in the morning(could have been anything that took it, obviously.) just recounting what I've been told.

Sit down before fact as a child, prepare to give up every preconcieved notion, follow humbly to whatever abyss Nature leads or you shall learn nothing

Don't know 'bout Gnomes and Elves, but I've seen plenty of Fairies in San Francisco.

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

I find it interesting that alot of older people claim to have had SEEN them. Makes me wonder if  they are telling the truth and if so why there are less sightings now? Or if its a matter of  physcology due to a more superstitious mindset or are old people just plain liars and take amusement in telling us younger people such stories

I guess there's a lot that can be read into that.
Perhaps fairies and the like were more popular back then, kind of like a fad of the day..

Edited to add: & perhaps people were less likely to be thrown into the Loony Bin for stating that they saw Faries back in the day compared to now.

I found a 1991 thread here titled "little people" that you might find interesting. I lived on Guam for 6 years, and there's a strong belief in little people, or "duendes". I went to an art exhibit by local artists on duendes, and the representations all looked like the gnomes & leprechauns from Ireland: peaked stocking cap, wide belt with big belt buckle, etc. When my grandson was little, everytime he left to spend the night somewhere, he got sick and ended up back home. It wasn't until his parents made him go outside & explain to the duendes where he was going and that he would be back that he could leave without getting sick. My son, who managed a Denny's, said at night in the restaurant, he would hear children laughing, food inventory would be pushed off the storage shelves, and once he watched a chair move clear across the restaurant on its own. Apparently the restaurant was built right in the middle of a path the ancient ones would take to get to the ocean, which is how the locals accounted tor the paranormal phenomena. While I never saw any duendes, often, in the morning, when the front door was opened, a swarm of shadows no bigger than 12" appeared to be coming into the house.

I have a friend who often sees fairies & angels, I don't see them, I see other things, but if she can take my word for what I see then I can take her word for what she sees. It's my experience that the world is far more complex and filled with far more things than what can be seen or experience by most people, and I feel privileged to catch a glimpse of it every now & then. Fortunately, I know people who share these experiences, so we can talk with each other comfortably.

I think fairies retreated due to urbanization and thats why they are less populated now... besides noone believes in them. I think with fairies you may have to bdlieve in them... well thats what tinkerbell said anyway....


One of my friends claims to have seen a fairy, it was like june of 2012, so fairly recently... I posted it on this website and was told about the fairy lights... these reminded me of orbs which I have seen.. so I think similar phenomena is regarded as different things around the world... I never saw a fairy, but I believe in them what the hell... I believe in dM near everything else might as well believe in fairies too..
