Fairy Encounter

BY LISA A.

By

This beautiful encounter with a faery or brownie took place on May 31, 2008 in Wyoming, Pennsylvania. Earlier that Spring, I met two Native American women who have had very vivid encounters with the Faery Realm, but I wasn't sure if these interdimensional beings were real. I prayed that God would let me meet one of these "Nature Guardians" and I forgot my prayer.

On Memorial Day weekend that May, our family got into a huge argument, resulting in my sister cursing out my father, slamming the door and taking my nephew with her. Our home fell into a gloom of sadness and depression that entire weekend, and I wasn't looking forward to being home from work that following Monday. Monday morning came and I dragged myself up from bed and sat by our window with the morning sun pouring in. Listlessly I daydreamed while looking through sections of my hair in the sunlight.

Suddenly, I was aware of a sense of being watched, and at the corner of my eye I saw a small feminine face looking at me with total empathy. She did not seem aware of me staring at her in shock. Her eyes were totally beaming unselfish concern about me, as though she sensed things were not right in our home. Her face was not human, but very "otherworldly" and beautiful. She had soft, light brown, cocoa-colored skin and wide-set eyes that tilted up a bit. And her eyes were totally all dark chocolate brown with no irises. They were not scary, though; they were full of love. She had high brow bones, high cheekbones, a high forehead and delicate nose and lips. She looked very delicate and regal. And there was a sense of innocence and humility about her as well as royalty.

After a good minute of me staring at her hard, she realized I was able to see her and she got this look on her face like, Uh oh... she sees me. I better disappear. And with that she did, but I still feel a connection with her to this day. Seeing her has not only showed me how our Creator really does hear everyone's prayers, and showed me that the Faery Realm really does exist. But it taught me to love and respect Nature and the Environment more, because now I know that there are faeries out there and they see everything we humans do to Nature and the wild animals. They see us dumping trash out of our cars and cutting down trees, etc. I don't think they are very impressed with the humankind.

After my encounter, I started picking up trash in my neighborhood and transplanting maple tree saplings that sprung up in our yard every Spring. I started feeding the wild birds and just plain loving Nature with every opportunity I found. One morning after my encounter, after doing this, right before I woke up, I heard a woman's voice sing this verse to me: "You are helping the flower to seed; all things are precious." I woke right up after hearing this and wrote her words in my journal. I will never forget that May 31st, of 2008 -- and I will never take Nature, trees, plants- all Creation for granted again.
