What Faeries Look Like

First of all, hardly anyone sees faeries (or fairies), full-face and in bright light. Most people see them slightly out of straight-on vision, or out of the corner of an eye. (When you look straight at them, they vanish. Part of this may be the legend that you can gain control over a faerie if you are able to look him/her straight in the eye.)

What faeries look like

Many people see  small faeries as little balls of light or shadow, flitting around the room. The lights can be white or pastel, usually. In our house, these are about two or three inches in diameter.

Here’s what they might look like, outside:

Faeries in the park

The small ones are more likely to interact with you, and–frankly–I think they’re the ones who hide things.

For more information, read Blurry spheres of light – what faeries really look like .

The human-sized faeries don’t seem particularly interested in us, when they appear. They interact on a personal level, in Underworld journeys and in dream/messages. However, I don’t think they’re “borrowing” shiny and glittery objects from us. That wouldn’t make sense, from their demeanor.The larger ones can range from two- or three-foot tall “gnome” size, to people who look just like you and me, or even larger.

Among the smaller “gnome-sized” ones, I usually notice that they’re wearing something red, and some green (usually a moss green color), but otherwise I don’t see them long enough to give a good description.

The larger ones (human sized, or larger) tend to be wearing more somber colors, often shades of tan or brown, the sort of thing peasants wove in the Middle Ages.

But, when I see these larger figures, they appear for about 1/10 the duration of the smaller ones, and they’re usually striding quickly as if going somewhere in my apartment. Perhaps they’re just passing through our dimension/world briefly. I have no idea.

I often see a cloak billowing behind the human-sized ones. It’s not a huge cloak, just a normal one as someone would wear for casual, everyday dress. The color is usually a warm brown, similar to the color of hot cocoa, but more reddish like oak.

Are these all faeries? I haven’t a clue. They seem to have something in common, including their manner of vanishing, so–for now–I call them all “faeries.” (Again, we get into the question of whether “faeries” are just the small–often winged–creatures, or can faeries be larger and/or include the Tuathai?)

But it’s not just seeing them. As an artist and author, I’m visually oriented, so it’s probably natural for me to see them, more than anything else.

Other people hear them but don’t see them.

Keep your expectations reasonable, and you will be rewarded.

  1. I’ve heard (and read and watched (in movies)) stories of faeries appearing to the naked eye as insects. Not merely someone mistaking a faerie for a bug, but changing their appearance to look like a bug to keep humans from seeing them. Is there a possibility that this actually happens?

    1. Kassie, I think it’s entirely possible that they may be able to shapeshift into the form of bugs, or create a glamoury that makes them appear that way. The ancient stories about Merlin — who became a kind of faerie, as a Green Man — suggest that this could be possible.

  2. several years ago i came across a list of things that may attract a faerie, honey, milk cake, shiny objects (i used some quartz, and amethyst), and that it would be best to clear a spot in the corner of a room that people dont visit often. so i decided that the best place in the house would be the back corner of my desk across the room. i laid out the things, and added a little more here and there for a week, and one day around 6 p.m. in the summer, i was watching t.v. in the living rooom, when a bright light caught my eye from outside. when i looked at it i saw a glowing orange ball floating around, and while i was watching 2 more joined it, i watched them for about 2 minutes, and the whole time i was hearing faint bells. my parents were in the room too, and i asked them if they saw anything otuside while it was happening and they said they didnt. i know beyond a doubt that they were faeries, and am pretty sure they were thanking me. the whole time i was doing this, i was always much happier in my room, and in the corner i set aside for the faeries i would always see tiny flashes of light, and see shadows moving during the day.

    1. Zach, thanks for posting this comment. That was really nice, to set out things that the faeries would like, and it sounds as if you were nicely rewarded for it, by seeing them.

  3. hi, i really believe in them and infact my friends and I………….. this may sound stupid………. but………….we are actually faeries though we are also human, and are teachers are witches..

    Please reply,


  4. Hannahlil that sounds almost unbelievable, amazing if true!

    I hope you have fun and enjoyable relationships with humans while on p. earth it is a great place enjoy your stay!

  5. is it true that faeries are on a different plane or dimension to us? if so could you please explain this concept…if that isnt too much trouble, i would also like to add how wonderful this website is and also being able to read and get an insight into other people’s experiences ia really interesting.
    thankyou fiona.

  6. I don’t quite agree – though I’ve only seen one human (ish) sized faerie, she was six feet tall, or about, and she almost always wore shades of gray or blue, though once I saw her in bright blue, trimmed in red. She stuck around me for three years or so (I have no sense of time, so I can’t tell how long exactly). She was rather distant (I got the impression her attention was devided), but I still saw her once a week or more, and sometimes I could sense her there for hours on end. I could hear her on occation. I’m not sure how else to describe it, but her voice sounded like blue-tinged, pure chrystal. Soft, but with possibility of an edge; clear, but with more than one way of seeing it.

    Then again, I think I may be related to them – the fey, I mean. I’d love to find a good way to tell for sure.


    1. Arlene,

      There are many articles at this website that explain what to look for if you want to see a fairy. However, to befriend one, you first must see them and earn their trust.

      That said, some faeries are not very nice. Be very cautious about them… as careful as you’d be about approaching (or trusting) a human stranger.

  7. I agree, and would advise any seeking to see the fey,to go with caution.I have had a long aquaintance with the fey( to spite the ney sayers that think I am crazy). I first met them over 20 years ago in a wooded glen not
    far from my home while meditating. After that first encounter I left a variety of gifts in all wooded areas:from
    glass marbles,tabbaco,incence,to precious and semi-precious stones,food and drink. I cant say for sure
    the exact reason but in general ,They seem to like me and I them.(although there are exceptions). I would
    advise any seeking them , be patient wait for them to initiate contact. Never to mock them or try to force the
    issue.Most of the people that I have met that veiw the fey as evil,either have a darkness in themselves,or mistake the pranks they play as evil. An example that I had was many years ago before leaving good stones
    (which I kept in a pouch on my belt) I went in the glen leaving glass trinkets as gifts,on my way back I saw a
    stone on the path than another,checking my pouch I discovered that over a dozen stones that I had in the pouch were gone ,finding only two while back tracking I laughed aloud , saying oh so you dont want glass anymore. The point being from my experiance it is more how you respond to contact with them that decides
    how they will treat you. If you treat them with respect and in good humor they are likely to befriend you. I have
    also encountered certain troops that in general dont like people,luckily so far those that are of ill intent(and you’ll know them) have been out numbered by the friendly troops,who have on oft occation warned me of
    ill intent heading my way(both fairy and non). My personal question is; could our ancestery or bloodline be
    at the basis of both encountering the fey and their like or dislike of us? sincerely darrell

  8. One afternoon, just after it had rained I noticed a brilliant small bug flying outside my window. I had to double-take because I swear it looked more like a fairy. It had a deepish blue (human like) body with bright orange wings. I went outside to see if I could get a closer look. I guess in what is true fairy fashion it buzzed around and kept disappearing from my view. When It did finally get close enough it resembled a bug, but like Zach, I heard a faint tinkling bell sound as well.

    So, I think is some truth to what Kassie and Zach have written.

    I also saw the same bug/fairy again on another occasion. I feel so privileged and lucky to have seen a fairy :)

  9. I tend to “feel” them more than “see” them. I’ve only seen faeries 3 times in my life and I consider myself blessed for that. The first encounter was walking through a park in Queens NY, It was night time , A woman stood in the distance .She was tall ..very tall, i’d say around 7 feet. Long black hair and violet eyes that seemed to almost glow. She was wearing a long purple dress and was sort of see through. Her presence was strong and kind of dark (not bad or evil) . It scared the crap out of me! I actually ran away i was so scared..haha
    The second time was after a circle, this may have been an angel or Deva not 100% sure it was a faerie. It was huge like 7-8 feet tall had wings and was wearing some sort of robe. This was clear as day and looked like a prism, you could see a definite body but it was prism like, kind of like looking at a crystal with the sun shinning on it. The strange thing was i was not scared..but time felt slow..and i couldn’t breath ( not in a scary way) it was only for a few seconds then disappeared. It was soooo beautiful i cried. The third encounter was in an arboretum in Long island. It was a hot day in the summer..my and my boyfriend at the time were laying in the grass hanging out by a dried up old fountain. This faerie appeared as a see through sphere. The only way i can describe it was..you know when it’s super hot outside and you look down the road how it looks wavy due to the heat? Well it was sort of like that but a sphere that was in motion. It quickly came at us, as it came close to my face it transformed shape into what looked like something that had wings (butterfly like) still see through, then shot away very quickly. Seemed sort of playful :)
    Hope you all get the chance to see one one day..it will change your view of life and the world forever.

  10. About a year ago I went camping and hiked up to a waterfall, I saw lights of yellow, blues, and purple. My friend said it was probably the sun, but there was just something about them. Did I see faeries?

  11. my friend abby is always saying I look, and act like a faerie. I am short, 4’11, with a very round face, round eyes slightly tilted upwards, and my ears are just barely pointed. I hate everything and anything to do with technology, concrete, buildings, all of it. And I am very good at twisting peoples minds. If you make me mad I can make you laugh, cry , then think your going insane. In that precise order. I like anything green. I will pick a leaf off a tree and eat it. Not very safe but still yummy. Do you agree with her? Or do you agree with me, that I am a normal, everyday human.

  12. I need some help. I saw something that i can barely explain, it woke me from my sleep, I have scratches on me , precisely they look small enough to be from a kitten..and have four “fingers” and a “thumb” type of claw marks..two sets of them. The scratches bled a little bit, but I didn’t notice until the morning. What I saw looked like water, structured into a shape..but the shape was unclear to me. It was about four feet wide (I believe there were 5 “beings” , and they were approximately 1 1/2 to 2 ft tall. Just standing still. Here’s an example of the look of the “water”- type beings…if youve seen the movie Predator then you will recall how the predator goes invisible, yet you can still make out his shape which looks almost watery in substance..THAT is almost exactly what I saw, except in a two ft tall form. I have been feeling tapping on my stomach when I lay belly down on my bed at night and I’ve also felt the bed vibrating several times. Does anyone know what it/they could be, or has anyone ever “seen” such a thing ? Any help is appreciated. Thank u

    1. Lorri,

      What you’re describing is not likely to be fae. I recommend talking with a spiritual professional — like a priest or minister — about what you encountered. He or she will be able to give you better advice than I can.

      Your description of “Predator” and water-y beings might be something associated with your area. In that case, there might be a fae connection. However, I really can’t tell. You need someone local to help you.

      Talk with a spiritual professional. It should be someone you know and trust and someone who doesn’t charge you money for helping you.

      That’s the best place to start.

      Fiona Broome

  13. My great-great grandfather was a faerie…
    He was normal height, not too tall, not too short for the average person,
    could make things move, described as “telekenesis,” had a farm, grew things, brewed things, etc.
    He lived here.
    Blue eyes, and hairless. No hair even on his arms or legs, in the early 1900s, late 1800s, mind you.
    This may sound very odd,
    but the gifts have been passed down my family.
    And, that is the total truth.

  14. I believe that I am constantly toyed with by faeries. It may just be me being paranoid, but ever since I was a small child I have seen things, and felt things, in nature, in cities, at home, and at night that just cannot be entirely explained. Some days are better than others in terms of contact with benevolent and good natured beings (I have had some faeries play with my hair to comfort me, some touch my cheek as I meditate, and I have even had some whisper to me on the wind), but at night it seems as though I have tormentors. Instead of the kind presence I normally enjoy, the faeries are mischievous and cruel (They cast misplaced shadows, they fill my room with a malicious aura, and they hide/take my belongings). I am beginning to think that I have somehow offended the faeries but I do not understand how! Sometimes I hate that I can feel faeries, but then I remember the kind ones that I have, in a way, met. Sometimes being connected to faeries feels more like a curse than a blessing, so be sure to truly think long and hard about opening yourself up to beings you cannot fully understand. Do not condemn the faeries because of a few bad apples, but please contemplate possible consequences to your actions. Be wary not because of what they are, but because of WHO they can be.

    If what I have said above means nothing to you by all means open yourself to faeries, but please realize that not all faeries are kind-natured.

  15. I do not know about fairies because I’m in Sri Lanka. I never had heard about strange things like fairies. But I want to know what they Look like, what can they do because I’m writing a novel about fairies.

  16. I saw something that looked like a Faerie at Faerieworlds in Eugene, Oregon, USA. Not the wonderful people dressed in the most amazing clothes. But something late in the evening that seemed to glow. I felt like she took delight in what she was looking at. And she had a mischievously fun spirit or way about her. Sadly, she was gone too quickly.

  17. Umm….fairies are attracted to shiny things and cream. They absolutely love cream. But if you want to interact by force….throw some grains of salt or sugar. They have to count every grain, you know? Like fairies, I count grains and love cream :)

  18. Fiona,

    If a fairy gives you something to eat, can you eat it?
    I am wounding because someone said its bat to.
    I haven’t seen a fairy though I would love to. I just found out about fairies today.

    Can good fairies be harmful or hurt you?
    Can they even turn bad by eny chances?

    There are a lot of trees around my house, but not much flowers. I even made a song for the fairies and 2 dresses.
    The dresses are a little too big, but I can fix that if the dresses don’t fit. What time should I sing the song for them and give them the present? Infact what time do they come out? To day,this morning,I wrote a letter to the fairies and am hoping they will wright back. Sometimes this all sounds too good to be true. But I believe in them with all my heat. I will try to gro flowers in my yard and make a place for the fairies to play and enjoy.

    Can you only be friends with fairies by looking in there eyes?

    It will be lovely,ang really really great full if you awnser my questions.

    … Maryam …

  19. What happens if fairies dont want to come to you and they think you are bad bud you really are not?

    Please answer,
    ~Maryam~ :)

  20. I have actually had a few different experiences with fairies. I’m a bit more on the psychic side, so I can sense energies(positive and negative) and see very many beings, and now that I know you can see them out of the corner of my eye, think I have seen them more times than once(before I believed some were lost souls, so to say.)
    One of my most recent experiences(it happened about 1 or 2 weeks ago) was one I already knew was fairies. I was walking around in my backyard when I heard what sounded like 9-13 year old children laughing(so, about my age.)down by our creek. I went a bit closer to the line where my backyard meets the woods, and sure enough, 3 short-ish kids around 12-13 were there. A brunette boy wearing a blue plaid shirt, a blonde, sort of angelic looking girl wearing a light pink shirt, and a blonde boy in a slate-colored shirt. But there was a woman with them, with long, raven-black hair and I couldn’t tell what she was wearing, although she had something with dark blue and purple and her eyes had a violet hue I could tell from about 20 yards away. She glanced at me, albeit indirectly, and I was so stunned at her looks that I couldn’t process correctly. She had a definite fairy look about her. Light olive skin, high cheekbones and slightly slanted eyes. A prominent nose and medium lips.(and the scariest part about this is I’m just remembering how she looked now. All I remembered before was her hair.) she looked back at the children and they seemed to disappear. I was backing away, both frightened and calm, like meeting distance relatives. Then, I saw 2 deer run away.
    Is it possible that these people were something else?
    I also believe I have fae blood. I have the same sort of features as this woman, but with a blonde, almost brown hair. I have always been able to trick people and grab things without people noticing(although I always return them) and if you make me mad, people say I have a stare that could make flowers wilt. My eyes change color with my mood, and I’m typically very happy. I have a special connection with nature. I’m very tall, I’ll be over 6’2″ as an adult. I can occasionally move things by thinking of them, and I have a very round face with pointed ears.

  21. What I forgot to mention- when I’m around batteries like phone and watch batteries, for example, the drain much faster than when they’re farther away. Watch batteries that last most people 1-2 years only last my mother and I about a month, but this doesn’t happen to my brother or father. Any idea why this may be?

  22. hello Fiona, I’m a new pagan and want to know if there is any kind of way to ward against dark fae. I’m not exactly scared, but i feel that it would be best to know these things as i plan to move to a more heavily forested area someday and become more connected to the natural world. if you can recommend some books or even a website i would be very grateful. thank you.

  23. I came to this web to figure out what they look like because I am seeing little figures scampering across my room im kind of scared because they come out at dark they are three inches tall I can look at them they don’t disappear or any thing they seem nice they make a lot of noise running in my room I just don’t know what they are do you?

  24. Hi Fiona, I’m only ten (And as well share the same name), and last night, I got scared because I heard noises, and I got sent a chainmail repost thing. Then, I suddenly fell asleep. When I woke up, I saw a yellow ball of light, a orange ball of light, and a pair of hands and brown hair, with no light aura OR wings, on my drawers. I am nearsighted, so I couldn’t see their faces. A few hours after I woke up and got out of bed, I lay in my bed in the same position and took off my glasses. The balls of light weren’t there. Neither the hands and brown hair. But I saw something when I got close up to my drawer: two handprint-like stains, right where the fairy had her hands! The strange thing is, my sister told me, “If you truly believe in fairies, then they will protect you,” and the came! Is it possible my sister has a connection with fairies? My family has a history with them. My grandma saw them as a kid too.

  25. is there any fae that looks like a humanoid insect about 2 feet tall or could this be something else entirely also every Halloween for the last three years around my house when i look in the sky i see giants made up of clouds walking across the sky probably not fae but do you know what they might be

  26. @alexander I have seen the first one you mentioned. My neighborhood is a very spiritual place and in the woods near my apartment I have seen a green humanoid insect about the size of my hand (NOT a praying mantis.) Also, I know a fairy who lives as a human. She is about four foot ten and was born with bright red hair. This doesn’t automatically qualify her as fae, but there are other things about her birth that I won’t go into right now.

  27. Hi Fiona, I belive in fairies but I don’t know how to be a friend of them, I never ever seen them, at all. But pls tell me how to see them and be friend of them, I also try some magic spells, :P I beg them to come and be my friend in my garden, pls answer me how to see a fairy and be friend of them!

  28. Hi Fiona E! (Who is sharing the same name,) yes I have also have history about a fairy, my cousin’s grandma was a friend of a fairy, but the fairy was rude so she call someone to get the fairy out of the house, and after it, fairy did not came to her grandma, and my cousin’s grandma is not a family member of mine, but it is a real story

  29. I seen a fairy, this article sounds somewhat similar to what I have interacted with but not really I found a photo of exactly what I seen when i had my interaction. The fairy was a still shape of a human with 2 wings. It was glowing bright neon pink. About 5 to 7 inches in size It first appeared as what i thought was a moth flying around my face Keep in mind i never looked into fairies nor seen the photo i have or knew it existed when i had my interaction. If anyone is interested contact me, I am a 16 year old psychic from Illinois.


    1. Chris, I’m delighted to hear that you’ve seen a fairy. Your description is remarkable.

      However, I have a firm policy of not posting people’s contact information at this or any of my websites. While I’d like to believe they’d only be contacted by sincere people, the risks — of pranks and spam, at the very least — are too great. Sorry.

  30. At night, I left a small plate and it had a small piece of bread and a small glass milk on top of the plate so I left it there for the fairies.At the morning I went to pick up the plate and it was completely empty no bread no milk on the plate I don’t know if it were fairies because it was at night after i left the plate and I was asleep.

  31. Actually i have a photo of a Faery one of the 2-3 foot faeries caught by my camera in broad daylight and she appears to have no clothing and a bandanna holding her hair out of her eyes and a gnome right behind as if to stop her from interacting with me and my kids didn’t see her straight on and she didn’t see me straight on she was either looking towards my husband or looking towards my kids and their doberman zues e-mail me if you’d like to see the photo yourself it’s not a trick nor photoshopped.

    1. Very cool, Rhonda! If you’d like to share a Flickr link or something like that, I’m sure many readers might be interested… if the photo isn’t too risque, that is.

  32. Thank you for your description. last night I was woken to 2 creatures on my bed the 1st was wearing a druid style cloak colored reddish-wine the face was there but not seen. Behind was an identical creature with a slightly muted colored robe. The thing that actually woke me was this glitter dust that the front one was sprinkling down on me.. these dust particles radiated magnificent flashes of light.

    I was never frightened, I felt comforted by these creatures and their dust.. as I rolled over to go back to sleep I still saw the sparkles of light.

    When I woke this morning, this image was the first thing I thought of and has dominated my thoughts all day… were they fairies, druids, was this a good omen or bad omen?

    1. Melanie, if you felt comforted, I think that’s your best guide, and it suggests that your experience was a good one.

      I’ve never heard of spectral (or real-life) Druids using glitter dust, so I’d suspect your encounter was from the fae world.

  33. My most prominent encounter with a fairie happened several years ago; I’d brought my daughter to school early in the morning and was quietly enjoying some tea in my sunlit apartment. I happened to glance at a small clear glass vase of flowers a few feet away and found myself staring right at the reflection of a startled fairie who may have not realized I was there. I moved slowly forward to get a closer look, completely in awe. I only saw her reflection in the glass, not a physical form. She was 2 or 3 inches tall and clearly feminine, and somewhat clothed in her own manner. We were frozen in a stare as she flitted a little; she looked as though she wasn’t sure what would happen if she tried to fly away. It was at least an hour, possibly more, that this staring contest went on, until an unknown noise (I can’t remember what now) snagged my attention. I looked away for only a fraction of a moment, but when my eyes glanced back she was gone.

  34. Hi, I have some questions…
    I’m making a fairy house, and I’ve never seen a fairy but if I make my house small, will it seem rude to the larger ones?
    Where is the best place to put a fairy house, and should I leave a note?
    How will the fairys see my welcome sign if it is inside my house where they cannot see?

    Not very many people live in my area , it’s kind of isolated, but I would love to meet and befriend a fairy, HELP!!


    1. Anna, I’m not sure that all faeries have a concept of “rude.” They seem to think that (what we’d consider) rude is the same as “funny.”

      The best place for a faerie house is against an outside wall (inside your house), not an interior one, and — to avoid dark and malicious faeries — only in rooms that are above ground, not a basement.

      I believe that some faeries sense energy, so if a welcome sign is there, they’ll know it.

  35. @ Zach, if I leave my stones out like you did will they take the stones? I am quite fond of them but I’d also like to see the faeries

  36. I think this is very interesting, I have been seeing something for awhile now maybe back from a year ago and a few months. At first I thought maybe he was a demon, he looked dangerous. He was tall with a back robe on and long black hair, I saw him while I was in the middle of one of my classes it felt like a dream but everything that happened felt so real. I even got his name, before I go to bed sometimes I speak his name and I’ll feel the touch of nails over my legs or arms it’s very comforting and never painful. I also see shadows from the corner of my eyes, it’s about the size of a cat, sometimes I feel the prick of nails touching my leg while I’m at school, it’s an odd feeling but doesn’t hurt. I don’t think it’s the same thing but my suspicion is that it is probably a gremlin?
    I worried for awhile that my mind just made it up but I have decided that I think it’s a faerie, I never got a good look at his eyes (which it now makes sense since you explained about the lore)
    Do you think it’s a faerie from the UNseelie court?

    1. Mazy, to be honest: I’ve never heard of anything like this. Not with so many sensory experiences combined, anyway.

      Seeing something…? Yes. No doubt about it. Plenty of people see faeries or signs of them.

      Seeing them and experiencing other personal, physical phenomena…? That’s extremely rare.

      I’d be very cautious about saying his name, particularly since you’re feeling something like nails. That’s more consistent with something not from the fae world, and it could be dangerous. I’m especially concerned since you’re experiencing this in public settings where faeries rarely venture.

      Please speak to someone in a spiritual field, in person — a minister, or anyone with experience in whatever spirituality you practice or trust — who knows the kinds of entities in your area (faerie types are often geographically linked), and whether you might be at risk.

      Even if it’s just something from the Unseelie Court, it’s good to have a real-life person to talk with. Some of the Unseelie Court can be clever, and — before you realize the control they have in your life — and have been associated with physical harm.

  37. Thank you for replying to my question, I would like to add a bit more to make it a little more understandable about the relationship. I have been told by the very few close friends I have told that he’s dangerous and he very well could be I have no clue, I have never seen him again since then unless it something from the corner of my eyes
    The reason I think it’s two different things is because the touches are different, the man (who I forgot to mention had horns as well) has a gentle touch that can have the slight feel of nails it’s soothing and makes me feel like I’m gonna fall asleep
    The other touch is more like slight digging of nails that doesn’t hurt but just feels odd like it’s trying to get me to listen, I know it sounds weird but I have the gut feeling it’s a faerie from the unseelie court
    I have been cautious with him, but for over a year nothing bad has happened more over I’ve tried to befriend both of them but I haven’t gotten any answers as of yet

  38. I think it was in 2006 or 2007 that I had experienced fairies living in my apt. I could sense them and see them with my 3rd eye, so my mind saw them, heard them and I talked with them. I had my dragons living with me, too. I really shouldn’t call them “my dragons”, one can never “own” them .. but these were as “mine” as they could be. For about 2 weeks, I was sensing fairy energy and picking up the images of two teenaged fairies- a boy in blue attire and a girl in yellow attire. I finally asked my mom if she’d been thinking about fairies and surprised that I asked, she said yes and asked me why.. I then asked how long she’d been thinking about them .. she said for 2 weeks … then I answered her that I’d been sensing them and seeing them for the past 2 weeks. That was when I started seeing all of them via my 3rd eye/mind. It was a family of them: 3 generations living in my apt. The younger ones and teens would tease my dragons – the dragons would ignore them a bit then try to torch them. At the time, I misinterpreted this as “fighting” .. it wasn’t till fairly recently, I was asked, “Are you sure they were fighting? They were probably playing.” Then I realized if my dragons really wanted to torch the fairies, they would have. Their aim is impeccable! But, back then, I was not familiar with how dragons and fae played together, after nearly two months of their mock battles, I banished my mom’s fairies to outside our apt, told them they could make their homes in our patio area, but not to come inside with the dragons. At that time, I had asked “If I put a doll house outside on the patio, would the fairies live in” .. the answer I got was “Not “in” it, but it creates an energy for them in their dimension, that they can use to create a real home and the things you put in your doll house. Like miniature furniture you put in a doll house, transforms into furniture the fae can and will use in their dimension” and for awhile, I would put out a saucer of milk and a slice of bread out on the porch for them. Each morning, the milk and bread would be gone. Not sure if they ever got the milk and bread or was it a cat and the birds? My questions: what was told to me about putting a doll house and filling it with miniature furniture and creating the energy for the fae to use and make a real home in their dimension – is that true? And what about the milk and bread I used to set out for them each night?

  39. Well in a book I read good fae have blond hair and blue or green eyes and log the sun (therefore they have a luminous vibe). They apparently come from fallen angles and log in the Rien. They are human sized and immortals. I am so confused.

  40. So I’ve been searching for some information on what type of Faerie I keep seeing. It’s been happening for years and I saw that someone else commented seeing a Faerie that had the same features. Long black hair, purple eyes, she has beautiful black wings. I see her often in my astral projection travels to this Otherworldly place. I need to know where she is from, or at least what type of Faerie she is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Every time i search I come up with nothing but more questions. Please help! Thank you.

    1. Hi, Proxy Fatale!

      I’ll see what I can find about something similar. The coloring suggests a faerie from Eastern European traditions, but a few Scandinavian spirits/faeries can have black wings, as well.

      She sounds absolutely lovely. I’ll post as soon as I find anything definitive about faeries with that appearance.

      Thanks for asking!


  41. Hi, i just wanted to say:
    i once saw a small glowing ball of light that flashed different colours that appeared at the top of a tree and flew really fast and disappeared into the grass.
    i have described it often and never been able to really explain it to people properly and have generally been written off as lying. seeing that pic of the balls you posted is the only visual representation i have ever found that looks similar to what i have seen :)
    so just a thankyou for validating what ive witnessed

  42. Hello! I’m writing because the image and description you wrote is exactly what i witnessed as a young girl. I’ve told the story many times and people always think I’m lying. I was about 7 years old, and i was up north at my aunts and uncles cabin, my favorite place. I remember very clearly waking up and seeing the little yellow balls of light dancing around my book shelf. I immediately knew that they were fairies, because my grandmother always told me stories about them. I also agree with the little ones taking random objects from my house during the years, bu and they always seem to replace with new items I’ve never seen. It gives me comfort knowing that they are around and that they felt comfortable enough to show themselves to me, in the words of my grandmother “they show themselves to people who truly believe.” I will always show love to my fairie friends, i hope i get the honor to see them again one day. Thank you for your writings! Bless be.

    1. Hello, Cameryn! I’m delighted you found my article & graphic. I know how important it is to feel believed and, even better, to find others who believe exactly as you do. I’m so pleased that you had a grandmother whose words and beliefs have stayed with you. I’m sure the faeries are grateful for you and your love for them, and they’ll appear to you again, sometime soon.

  43. My 8 year old son was woken late at night by what he described was a dark faerie. The male faerie had thick, brown hair, six horns on top of his head, wore brown clothing and was holding a brass miniature bejeweled elephant that was given to my son from a relative. This faerie never spoke, but was almost alerting my son he was taking this elephant with him to the world of fae. A couple of months later the elephant came back to my son’s room in a shinier state it had ever been seen like. I am wondering what this was about. I will also add that we started a fairy garden in an inside planter a year beforehand. Please answer me. Thank you.

    1. Debbie K, that’s a very odd and detailed encounter. More detailed than I usually hear about, and I have never heard of a faerie with six horns. However, it sounds like everything turned out well, so – for now – I wouldn’t worry about it. The faerie garden may have been a factor, but since it had been there for a year without anything happening, I’m not sure it was the source of the fae energy.

      Usually, these kinds of encounters are related to where you are. Most faeries seem to be connected to the land.

      I urge you to write down all of what your son recalled, and ask him to illustrate it if he’s artistically inclined. (If not, don’t worry about it.) I think it’s important to document these things, in case they make more sense, later.


  44. Thank you for your answer. I will document it. My son also showed me the size with his fingers (3.5 – 4 inches) I forgot to mention, as my family and I are used to this, but we have had many things go “missing “ for a period of time, weeks or months, and they have returned in the oddest spots. I will keep a further eye on my household and let you know of any possible future events.

    1. Debbie K, that makes his faerie encounter even more credible. The small faeries seem to be more likely to cause mischief and dress up – or at least appear to people – in curious garb or form.

      My family is accustomed to things going missing and then turning up in completely preposterous (or at least unexpected) places. When it’s something important, we’ve had some luck speaking out loud to the faeries, saying, “Okay, put ____ back where it belongs.” (And sometimes we do a little tidying, as a gesture of goodwill, even if the area is already as neat as a pin. That seems to help.)

    1. Yes. I think it’s a nice thing to do. I know there are wooded areas where lots of people have done this, and it’s charming!

  45. I have several.. they bounce around across roof and from pine trees in the back.. plant alot of flowers and bird baths they like
    Brilliant little lights bounce around.. I showed my wife, newly married together and asked for them to show themselves for her.. it was awesome.. she loves fairies.. she was blown away.. and yes they love messing with stuff.. taking and moving..

  46. I’m not sure if this the right forum but I have been searching the internet for people who have described my experience. When I was a child, about 9, I walked into my kitchen one night, only guided by moonlight, to get some juice. Upon closing the fridge and beginning to walk back to my room I noticed from the corner of my eye a glowing light at the base of my cabinets at the floor. From a hole about 3″x 3″ I saw a pair of glowing cat eyes. It frightened me so I was about to make a run for it but before I could a blur speedily crossed my path and under my dining table stood a creature about two feet tall with a dirty red-like skin tone and a texture that resembled burn scars covering its body. The eyes were no longer glowing and cat- like, they were now more human in shape with a color matching its skin and black pupils. It was wearing something like tattered rags and was grinning at me slyly, showing many small teeth. I ran and told my mom. Never saw it again.

    On a different day, at the same apartment, at about the same age, I was sitting at the dining room table drawing. I was home alonein the middle of the day. Behind me were no doors only the refrigerator and kitchen sink and a wall to my left. All the sudden I got the feeling I was being watched. I looked up but no one was there. As I turned my head I realized there was something behind me. A figure with the form of a person but the consistency of clear water stood behind me on the right. It had no clothing or distinguishing features, no face, only that it was transparent and its whole being appeared to be covered in rippling waves. I then realized there was another figure behind me on the left. It was identical to the other except that it was a transparent black color. They stood there without moving for what felt like many minutes.

    Neither of these experiences gave off good vibes. I’m much older now but I recently met someone who had a similar experience with a transparent being but they described it as “Predator- like” (from the movie) and chasing after them when they were driving one night. I’m just looking for people with similar experiences so that I might be able to find common parallels and further my research. If anyone has any research suggestions I would be grateful.

    Thank you
