Sensing the Presence of Fairies.
First off, it is important that you do not go hunting for fairies. Finding them should be relaxing and based on trusting your instincts. Hunting for fairies may cause them to become uncooperative and even mischievous.
There are many different ways to attract Fairy Folk to you. Keep a playful, open attitude to help keep your senses open. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination while trying to sense fairies. Where do you think would be the most likely place for there to be a fairy presence? Is there somewhere that you think they would dwell or where they would like to linger? Go with these ideas, because usually your subconscious has picked up on a fairy presence in these places.
Fairies are believed to prefer to reside in “in-between places”. These places have shifting energy patterns, which make them suitable places for fairies, since they are in-between creatures. Such locations would be places like crossroads, glades, hedgerows, bends in the road, bridges, the seashore, lakes, streams, waterfalls, and small islands. Fairies like these places because there is always plenty for them to attend to. In a home, fairies are most likely to linger around thresholds, hallways, stairs, landings, cupboards, or corners.
It may seem easier and more inspiring to look for fairies outside, however. The best time to encounter the Fair Folk are also known as “in-between times”. These times are dusk, dawn, midday, and midnight. Times of the year when seasons are changing are also fairy favorites.
One of the most important things to remember and practice when trying to sense fairies is just to be. When it feels right and you’re relaxed, go find a special place to you and let yourself simply be in that location. Don’t try too hard. Simply allow your body and mind to relax; unwind. Be very aware of your body, as it is often your intuition speaking to you. Note anything that you’re feeling without judgement of it. Also be sure to note your emotions in the same manner.
Use your imagination once more. What do you think fairies might look like? Go with whatever pops in to your mind, as it is likely to be your intuition coming to surface again. As you become aware of fairies, you may begin to see movement from the corner of your eyes that disappears whenever you turn toward it. Learn not to turn – simply allow yourself to be.
Fairies may show themselves to you in many different ways: a whisper in the leaves, movement in the grass, a ripple in water, stillness in the air, or even random, strange losses of time. They can give you the giggles, let you feel joy, or a number of other things.
Remember, sensing fairies is not about proving they are there – it’s about feeling their presence, allowing yourself to be uplifted, entranced, and excited about life.
