How To Spot Faeries

1. Spheres of Light

One of the most common ways fairies and other ethereal beings are noticed, is as spheres, flickers or glints of light. It’s very common to see it around mushrooms, blooming flowers and springs. People associated with fairies (children of fairies) can watch these lights anytime. You may also notice unexplained movements out of the corner of your eyes.

2. Chilling sounds and music

Once you’ve entered the fairy Realm nothing is the same. Soft sounds may greet the strangers who enter the fairy land. Whether it’s the sound of various wind instruments - like the flute - or a simple sound - like the welcoming sound of tiny bells - it’s absolutely the same. Allegedly, if you ring a bell over a spring or pond you may see the reaction of fairies responding to your invitation.

3. Fairy Rings

It’s long believed that fairies love to sing and dance at night. They usually dance around a circle. Many who stay in forests at nights claim to have heard wonderfully enchanting songs, while later in the morning they find mushroom circles, circles of flowers or trace of footprints of human-sized nymphs dancing known as the Fairy Rings. Many believe that the “Fairy Rings” are the Gateways to the Fairy World. Respect the fairy rings and always ask for permission before entering the Circle.

4. Laughter

As Fairies are - almost always - described as cheerful creatures, when you are close with these entities it very likely to hear laughter or feel the urge to laugh. The feeling of joy fills your heart and lasts long!

5. Scent of Flowers

You are walking down a path, or even a road while your nose is filled with an overwhelming scent of flowers like Iris or Violets, or even the scent of the grass like it just rained or maybe it smells like walnuts, apples or grapes. As fairies are often associated with flowers, plants and trees, this could be the work of a playful Fairy sprinkling scented fairy dust to you, blessing you or trying to catch your attention.

6. Deviations of the Air

The “fairy wings” may cause a light breeze on the area around a fairy. Whether it’s actually the wings or the energy shift around the ethereal being does not really matter. Pay attention to the leaves around you. A gentle whirlwind may be a solid proof that a fairy (or fairies) like your company.

7. Animals around you Act Weird

You notice that you are being followed by birds like ravens, your cat acts weird, staring at something for minutes (with no apparent reason) or play with the air while your dog is nervous or probably bark at something you do not see. As Fairies could be described as the Souls of Nature they can easily cause phenomena like this.

8) Milk or Beer goes bad and candies are missing

Your milk has gone bad before its actual expiration date and so does your beer. You may also notice that milk is less as if someone drunk it while you are certain that no one would ever drink from your milk. This could be a sign of a fairy who entered you house. Try to contact them rather than getting angry.

9) Jewellery and shiny objects are missing

Before you call the police try to look around if you can find them in other places. Fairies love to play with humans in this way. They enjoy “stealing” stuff like this and hide them in different places. It is said that Fairies love all shiny objects and that’s what they love to take first. Keys or with fancy keychains is a “fetish” for this wonderful creatures. Be kind to them. They -almost- always return them!

10) A sense of warmth on your skin

The energy of the Fairies - when is in close contact with your aura - can be felt like tiny vibrations of energy on your body, or heat on your skin. You may actually feel the warmth of the beloved creature as a gently tingling or tickling on part of your body.

11) Flowers (and other plants) sprouting from bizarre places

This is another phenomenon that is often associated with the presence of Fairies. You may notice that from one second to another a flower has bloomed while you could swear that you have not even seen it at all! This is very common when Casting Fairy Witchcraft or a Ritual which invokes Fairies. If this happens in your house it means that you have a winged visitor… or maybe visitors! 

12) The Eyes of the Woods

Have you ever felt that trees are watching you as you walk down the path in a forest? Have you ever felt the presence of something really strange when you are alone and the night-sky is full of dazzling stars? The Trees may - indeed - have eyes of their own, as they are probably inhabited by magical creatures as Fairies (of course it can also be elves, gnomes or other entities). Greet these trees and ask for guidance and protection.

Sleep circle I made for over my bed.
I used 3 viles of different salts. Black salt, sea salt, and fire salt.
3 viles of lavender flowers.
3 sachet spells. One for good sleep, one for sweet dreams, and one to prevent anxiety dreams.
Also threw a hunk of quartz that I made a magic net for.
Oh, and there are 3 sigils in the base.

Sooo, @cupidoago asked me if I could explain how I made my sleep circle and I’d be happy to share!

I started with a green Styrofoam wreath base and glued on some pieces of paper with sleeping related sigils on them.
Then, I took the thick ribbon and cut 3 even lengths, checking that the length doesn’t make it hang too low to the bed. I wrapped the ends around the base and hot glued them into place. Then I brought all the ends together and hot glued those.
Then I used some fake vines and wrapped them around the base. Same with a vine with the white flowers on it. I stuffed the ends into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in place. Then I kinda moved them around and made them look neater.
Then, I took 6 fake hanging wisteria blossoms and jammed them into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in.
Now, the witchy part, I have 4 sachet spells (good sleep, no nightmares, strong relationship, no anxiety dreams), viles of herbs (black salt, sea salt, fire salt, 3 with lavender, thyme, catnip, jasmine, chamomile), and I have a stick of Selenite and a clear quartz point tied up there too! I just attached all of that with lengths of ribbon tied to the vines or around the base.
If any of that didn’t make sense, please let me know! I hope it was helpful and if you decide to make one please tag me if you post pictures!!
