Faeries Siren Song )O(

la cat

Merry meet all,

I want to post about our winged friends. No I don’t mean screeching jays or cooing chickadees. I am talking about the fae, the faeries, our unseen allies. Or so we think. I’m a brave enough adult to dare to believe in the existence of faeries but I also know well enough when to invoke them, honor them and be careful of them.

Faeries can help us in our homes and gardens. They can protect the home and magically guard a home, help plants grow in the garden and protect it, and keep worse nasty spirits away. But where I come from, they can also enchant you to steal you away to leave you to your death!

I believe that Pleasant Bay is highly populated with the fae and spirits. The tiny fishing village where I set my novel and where I grew up is faery territory. They frolic and flit and send out siren songs to lure you to your fate. Their siren song is sung and the people who can hear them are most likely more clairvoyant.

I have strolled through the woods, the nature trails, and hiked on the mountains. As I walked, I saw flashing spots of light and felt their presence. It feels like you’re being watched but you look and nothing is there. You swear your hear giggles but again, nothing’s there. You feel an unusual need to take a certain direction on a walk through the trees but you can’t understand why you wanted to do that. That is what I mean by faeries. They choose to show themselves to you, its not the other way around. They prefer those who are faery friendly and want to help protect the environment.

But its not without its dangers. The siren songs are heard by those who possess the ability to. However, they can confuse those who are weary and unwary. A cliff presents its dangers and small ponds or lakes. Harbours are another hunting ground for faeries. They say the fae were originally blood drinkers. It is possible, I haven’t researched that enough yet. But while I am not sure they sing that siren song, I believe that they do.

Never thank a faery and never linger in their fae world for too long. Never take their food or drink or you will never return to the mortal world. Their time is different than ours. Their logic is different than ours.

Don’t turn your back on the ocean, don’t gaze into the ocean waves too long and don’t get lost on highways. I am sure some of this goes without saying. But if you don’t believe me, then go to the harbor on a foggy night and see for yourself if you are not entranced by the moody misty waves. I have been and know when to enjoy that sensual experience of waves rolling but know when to turn away and go home.

But for those who can and do sense faeries, then embrace your gift. It is a magical and should be treasured gift to sense the faeries. They don’t let themselves be known by just anyone. You must be special. You may just have a brownie or house goblin lurking within the walls of your home. Hint: They like older houses. Leave an offering of pretty silver trinkets, or milk, honey and cookies for them. And never stop believing in magick!!!

Blessings, Lady Spiderwitch )O(

Ghosts, Spirits, Poltergeists Oh my !!

Mist

Merry Meet All,

In the other blog entry, I discussed the veil between the worlds. Now I am going to look at the different types of spirits you may encounter if you do hold a seance. (Remember only channel positive spirits from a higher source.)

A variety of spirits or energies are out there. It’s like looking at the different colors of a rainbow. The colors range from light to dark. Rainbows are a beautiful phenonemon.

First, there are the garden variety of ghosts. They are sometimes referred to as earthbound spirits, trapped on a plane of existence and unable to move on to the Light. They may have a message or a warning for the living and those who were closest to them. Or they are just trapped spirits.

Poltergeists are manifestations of a restless energy. They move objects, make noises, cause electronic equipment to malfunction, and other unpredictable things. They are noisy and distracting. The word poltergeist derives from the German word poltern (“to make noise”) and Geist (“ghost”) and the form literally means “noisy ghost”. The destruction and noise that poltergeists create has no known cause. The haunting can last from a few hours to several months. They are disembodied spirits of a low order, a lower energy level. You would not want one in your home.

Crisis Apparitions

A crisis apparition appears when the living person is experiencing the condition that will lead to his death. A famous example is the 1893 sighting of Vice Admiral George Tyron by guests at his wife’s tea party. The vice admiral, dressed in his formals, walked through his home at the same time that his ship sank with him off the coast of Syria.

Nonhuman entities are a lower level of entity. That can include fairies and shadow people. They have never incarnated as human beings. We cannot ever determine how much intelligence an entity or spirit has.  I can confirm their level of high or low energy and what that means for us. Most spirits are easy to encourage to move on, but some like to stick around. Poltergeists would fall into this category, and tommyknockers, shadow people, and other forms of lower energy spirits. Nonhuman entities do not think like us. They do not premeditate and strive to present themselves as human at first, and only consistent interaction with them will reveal their true form. They call for a more aggressive means to force them to leave.

Residual hauntings have to do with a location. The haunting is tied to the location of a home. Ley lines are an example of a location-based anomaly. A ghost who repeats what he did over and over again in an area where he died is a great example of a residual haunting. The haunting is permanent and is impossible to clear from an area. A traumatic moment in time has a powerful impression on an area. The ghost will replay the moment in time for an eternity, which is sad. The ghost cannot move on to the Light. A person might hear a child’s toy playing or doors opening and closing. They are harmless.

Shadow people have a human appearance. They are the shadows you see out of the corner of your eye. People have reported seeing them. They have red eyes. They are of the lower energy realm and the energy they radiate is malevolent. Telling them to go away may not be enough to get them to leave your home. You do not want these beings in your home under any circumstances. They are fleeting and quick. If you tell them to leave, you may find more of them in your home later. Try ignoring the ghost. They want attention and will do anything to get it. It will be hard. Stick to your guns. Get help from someone. It will be hard to deal with alone. Turn on the lights, yes, even at night. You do not have to leave lights on all night long, but they hide in the dark, don’t they? Meditate on white light filling your house. Lloyd Aurebach wrote a book entitled Ghost Hunting: How to Investigate the Paranormal. He covers the subject in depth and will have information on how to deal with shadow people. Pray you never need to.

Before you leap to clear a house of a ghost, I caution you to first determine if a home is actually haunted. Logic and common sense prevail here. If you have tried everything and are grounded and centered, and still believe you have a haunting, then you may clear the home of the spirit/s. I urge you again to perform with a trusted friend or other person. Most spirits will leave a home on their own. Concentrate on white light and positive energy. They may not want to be there with you, either.

The next entry will discuss how to clear your home of a haunting. Believe me, I’ve been there!!!

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch
