Fairies - Can You See Them Or Are Gone Into The Mystical Mist?

Here is my Mystical Realms Fairy … I have also used her and filled in the blank with other phrases. For instance, my sister is a massage therapist and I have made her one of these with the phrase “Massage Therapists Are Magical”. I know she will love this, but it’s for Yule - Christmas, so I’m hoping she doesn’t check out my blog. I matted and embellished it for her as well as used an embellished frame. Love it. But I do love the Mystical Realms wording myself. Now, onto the post ….

Good Day To All Who Gather in Kindness and Good Intentions!

I thought this was so interesting especially since it’s from 1648.

"The fairies
Were of the old profession;
Their songs were Ave Marias,
Their dances were procession.
But now, alas! they all are dead,
Or gone beyond the seas,
Or, further, for religion fled,
Or else they take their ease."
~Bishop Corbet, whose work was published in I648, and was reprinted many years after by Bishop Percy

I, for one, do not believe they are all gone, but are invisible to our human eye. Although those who are sensitive to the otherworldly realms I’m sure see them from time to time, if only from the corner of their eyes. Perhaps we all do, but some just don’t notice and some don’t think that such beings exist.

Oh if only we could see them! Very interesting poem written by that Bishop. I too believe they are still around but in another world.

Indeed, they are NOT gone. In fact, a very good friend of mine, Waterfae, has been doing Faerie Tarot readings for many years now. She communicates with them all of the time ~ very cool!

Bright Blessings always,
