T-Shirts: A Fun, Silly Side Project, Plus a Lyme Book Update

I wasn’t going to mention this on my blog; in fact, I created these t-shirts on a whim, released them into the Universe and then promptly forgot about them. When I create something visual, I get so immersed in the present moment and then move onto the next thing, fully immersing in that. Sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie reminded me of the t-shirts by posting one of herself wearing the one I designed and sent among her birthday gifts:

It features a teal fairy and script reading “Fairy Important Person.” She shared a closeup photo, too, and people started asking where she got her shirt. You can find it here, in several color options. 🙂

That reminded me that I created a text only version, along with some “Wyrd is the Word” shirts, all of which you can find here.

They were a fun diversion after creating Reiki Level 2 Symbols: A Guided Practice Journal and Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook, as well as the synchronicity, answered prayer and dream journals.

In any case, those are some behind the scenes projects I worked on last fall and winter, before reading back to back Tolkien novels, traveling and getting back to painting. I always have some kind of creative project flowing in the garden, house, writing, painting, or something else. I just rarely think to mention the smaller creations, even though I have so much fun doing them.

For those of you eagerly awaiting The Metaphysics of Lyme book, I’ve given myself a break until June, and then I’ll focus on editing and releasing that book sometime in late 2019. I appreciate your patience. Visual arts fill my well. Writing — though I do a lot of it — pulls from that well, so I periodically need to refill my well in order to continue writing. The good news is that I talk each week with so many clients dealing with Lyme disease that I have constant material rising to the surface for inclusion and revamping in the book, in order to create the most valuable Lyme resource I can.

In the meantime, Lyme Journal encourages readers to delve into deeper patterns and self-healing possibilities for people with Lyme or any other chronic illness/injury that hasn’t responded well to traditional treatments.

What can I say? I’ve got four planets in Gemini and Virgo Rising — lots of Mercury in my chart. Change is good for me, but I eventually cycle back to old projects with new insights and energy. My process just takes awhile for more complex creations. 🙂

Garden Update: Cat Naps, Fairy Crossing, and Shades of Fall

The magic continues at our new place. The wonderful neighborhood cat, who so successfully shooed away the groundhogs and scents the garden whenever bunny nibbles get too big, has taken to napping with me, just outside the sliding glass door. Whenever I decide to take a quick BioMat snooze in the back room, I usually find something like this:

Ryan Stone ~ The Secret Lives of Elves and Faeries: The Truth behind the Story of Rev Robert Kirk

Thanks to Anthony for forwarding the link to this Ancient Origins article! As I told him, I own both John Matthews’ book, The Sidhe, and the Reverend Robert Kirk “official” book, The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Faeries. This article explores additional letters and stories that seem to indicate what many of us already suspected — namely, Rev. Kirk’s “myths and legends” recorded his actual experiences.

Epoch Times ~ 6 Credible Elf Incidents?

Today’s post goes right along with a fascinating book I’ve been reading for the past month: “The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries” by W.Y. Evans-Wentz. This 1910 dissertation involves copious interviews of “old timers” living in the outskirts of Celtic countries in the early 20th century, before electricity and “civilization” wiped out most of the remaining practitioners of Fairy-Faith. As an academic endeavor, it’s quite dense and slow reading; however, Wentz’s painstaking efforts to find credible witnesses, authentic texts, and anthropological indicators definitely bring this typically “woo-woo” topic to levels of scholarly debate not normally afforded the Faery Realm. He interviews psychics, politicians, ordinary folks — many in their 80’s and 90’s even at the turn of the 20th century.

Wentz gives some brief overviews of similar beliefs, myths and legends in other cultures, but he primarily focuses on the Celtic regions. Today’s post explores my recurring topic of elves in Iceland, as well as some evidence for actual hobbits, and a civilization of “Little People” in North America. Anyway, I found the following article quite interesting. Enjoy!

If you ask an Icelander whether elves exist or not, chances are he or she will say it is quite possible.

Many polls over the years have shown the majority of Icelanders believe in elves to some degree. Late last year, a judge even halted the building of a road in Iceland because it may disturb elves living in the area.

Myth often has fact as its foundation.

In 2004, the fossils of small humanoid beings were found on the remote Indonesian island of Flores. The being, named Homo floresiensis but better known as the “hobbit,” stood about three feet tall. The journal Nature explains that bones from several individuals were uncovered, showing that it was a society of people this size and not an anomaly.

So are elves more like the tall, lithe, and strong Legolas of “Lord of the Rings,” or more like Santa’s helpers who look like small children? Here are some accounts of elf encounters.

1. ‘Little People’ Legends, Mummy Found

The Cherokee native Americans spoke of Yunwi-Tsunsdi, which literally means “little people.” The Yunwi-Tsunsdi were described as kind and helpful, barely reaching the height of a man’s knee. The natives of Hawaii spoke of the Menehune, a plentiful race of little people who built cities, fished, and farmed. The Shoshone natives of Wyoming also spoke of little people, the Nin’ am-bea, whom they feared offending. The Nin’ am-bea were known to shoot people with arrows if offended.

In 1932, a mummy was found in the Pedro Mountains, close to where the Shoshone lived. It was examined by the anthropology department at Harvard University and at the American Museum of Natural History. It was originally identified as belonging to a 65-year-old man, though it is just over a foot tall.

The mummy was lost after one of its owners died. Dr. George Gill of the University of Kansas examined x-ray photographs decades later; he said the mummy was likely an infant with a birth defect that caused it to have an adult-sized skull, but remained open to other explanations.

Other people in the Pedro Mountains region have told stories of finding similar tiny mummies, as documented in books about local folklore.

2. Little People’s Burial Site in Ohio

The American Journal of Science published an account in 1837 of a strange discovery in Coshocton, Ohio: “From some remains of wood still apparent in the earth around the bones, the bodies seem all to have been deposited in coffins; and what is still more curious, is the fact that the bodies buried here were generally not more than from three to four and a half feet in length. They are very numerous, and must have been tenants of a considerable city or their numbers could not have been so great. A large number of graves have been opened, the inmates of which are all of this pigmy race. … Similar burial grounds have been found in Tennessee, and near St. Louis in Missouri.”


3. Bulldozing Operation Inexplicably Halted in Suspected Elf Habitat

In 1996, an attempt to bulldoze a hill in Kopavogur, Iceland inexplicably failed. The hill, which was to be cleared for a graveyard, was believed to be occupied by elves. During the operation, two bulldozers inexplicably malfunctioned. Television cameras malfunctioned, unable to focus on the hill.

Elf communicators were called in and apparently were able to reach an agreement with the elves. The elves decided to leave, the communicators said, and the machinery began to work again. The event was reported on by the New York Times.

Hildur Hakonardottir told the New York Times in 2005: “My daughter once asked me, ‘How do you know where elves live?’ … I told her you just know. It’s just a feeling.”

Another Icelander, Vigdís Kristín Steinthórsdóttir, expressed a similar idea in 2011 when a mining operation near her home was believed to be sabotaged by elves.

“I had been [in the mountain] before with other people who sensed the natural beings weren’t content with the disturbances to the ground and they hadn’t been asked to move. We sensed they were sad about it. I wanted for us to apologize,” she told IcelandReview.

Stephen Wagner has been investigating the paranormal for 30 years and has written books on the subject, including “Touched By a Miracle: True Stories of Ordinary People and Extraordinary Experiences.” In an About.com article, he tells of multiple accounts of elf encounters, including that of Paul in South Africa.

In 1986, Paul was hiking near the Mangrove Swamps Nature Reserve with a group of friends. At around 6 p.m., they came across an open space with rock formations. Paul told Wagner: “We looked around and witnessed little people sitting on the illuminated rock formations and others who were interacting with each other.”

The experience lasted about 10 seconds, and he estimated there had been 20 to 30 of these little people. Startled, Paul and his friends ran back to the car. They later returned to the same spot and found the lights and rock formations, along with the little people, were gone.

5. A Shimmery Little Person Behind a Tree

Wagner recounts another story, this one from Greenburg, Penn. In 2003, a woman whose name is only given as K.T. was walking in the woods at dusk. The area around her appeared unusually “shimmery,” as she described it.

As she rounded a bend, she came face-to-face with a little elf. It was peeking at her from behind a tree. K.T. described it: “It was almost a stereotypical elf: long, pointy ears, long funny-shaped nose, very long fingers and pointy cap. It was wearing red clothes and hat, and its skin appeared to be a very light lavender color.”

When she made an exclamation of surprise, it jerked back and disappeared.

6. An Elf Neighbor Borrowed Scissors

Let’s return to Iceland for our final account. Iceland is home to the only Elf School. Located in the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, the Elf School is a good place to learn all the elf-related stories. The headmaster, Magnus Skarphedinsson, has spent 30 years talking to thousands of people who claim they have encountered the hidden people.

One of the stories he tells is of Elly Erlingsdottir, the head of the Hafnarfjordur town council’s planning committee. She said some elves had simply borrowed her kitchen scissors and returned them a week later. She was completely confident that this really happened, and a local mystic was often invited to communicate with elves to get their opinions before the committee made decisions.

Andri Snaer Magnason, a well-known environmentalist, spoke to the Huffington Post about the Icelandic belief in elves in relation to development decisions.

When elf advocates were saying the construction of a road from Reykjavik to the Alftanes peninsula would disturb the little people, Magnason’s major concern was that the road would destroy bird nesting sites and have other environmental impacts.

He’s a bit skeptical about elves, but he said: “I got married in a church with a God just as invisible as the elves.”

Numerous accounts beyond those recorded here have been given of encounters with little people, whether with the leprechauns of Ireland or those with other names and slightly varying forms.

The Faery Referral Network

Sometimes I just have to smile with an inner wink! When we moved to Goshen last year, I felt an enormous pull to get back to the Earth, nurturing the soil and healing this land on all levels. Due to the number of trees that had been cleared away during the gut rehab of our rented home, when we first relocated, this land felt traumatized. It had been the neighborhood eyesore, completely overgrown and left to Nature’s whims, but, of course, that’s how Nature Spirits like things. Even though many of the trees had been diseased and sprung up so close together as to prevent thriving, this property still had a third to a half acre of woods in one of the more industrial parts of town. Without the trees, the newly renovated house looked spiffy, but the land felt stripped and deeply sad, like it had lost its way.

I’ve chronicled my efforts to transform this neglected plot into something beautiful, productive and functional — along with little faery spats I’ve encountered along the way. Oh, how they hate that weed whacker! And yet, they learned to recognize that if I didn’t maintain the weeds within proper height, someone else would mow them to a quarter inch. Best to work with me, as I am willing to work with them. As the yard has transformed with raised beds, perennial herbs, edible ornamentals, a winter cold frame, trellises, and loads and loads of wood mulch, I’ve felt the Nature Spirits relax and begin to enjoy the space again.

We have a very faery home and yard. Even people who don’t believe in faeries notice the energy when they approach our yard and step inside our house. It’s quite palpable, and I keep meeting people around Goshen who, apparently, know me (even though I don’t know them) because they purposely drive by our yard all the time to see what kooky, “cool” new project I’ve embarked upon. “Wait until next year!” I tell them, “The edible ornamentals and landscaping have only just begun. Next year is medicinal herb year, as well as the edible front yard.” 😉

Anyway, I work in concert with Nature Spirits, as I’ve shared many times before regarding effective protection from storms and answered requests for rain. What I haven’t shared is what I’ve come to recognize as the “Faery Referral Network,” which just cracks me up! In case it’s not obvious, I spend a lot of time gardening and cooking up Earth-friendly projects in larger Goshen. My current volunteer work is off the hook and actually more intense than my work life, which, by contrast feels quite easy. No back-breaking labor, no exposure to fluorescent lights, no need to transport myself somewhere for a meeting. Sure, I travel multi-dimensionally in my mind to read energy and share intuitive and healing insights, but in terms of physical effort, it’s far less taxing.

Nonetheless, my agreement with the Faery Realm when all of this started was that if I gave this much attention to the Earth, then they needed to manage any advertising or promotion efforts for my business. Though very specialized in skill, my paid work is what permits me the flexibility to offer all this gardening and community service where I live. I really hate marketing. It’s just not something I enjoy at all, so I turned it over to the faeries in exchange for devoted 3D side Earth healing and Faery Realm Awareness information on my blog.

Can I just say that they continually come through? I have many clients with whom I have worked off and on during my 12 years as a Medical Intuitive and Intuitive Reader and 7 years as a Life Coach. They generate referrals, too, but ever since I made this deal with the Faery Realm, I’ve been receiving a different sort of referral. People contact me for all manner of readings not because they’ve heard about Medical Intuitive Sessions or because they know someone who had a session with me. Not because they’ve read a Lyme Disease or Past Life article. Nope! I know it’s a Faery Referral Network when someone contacts me out of the blue and says they don’t even know what kind of session they want to have with me, but they love my “garden adventures” and “stories about the Nature Spirits.” At first, it kind of caught me off guard, but now it happens so regularly that it just feels natural. And so it is … because life does work that way. When we devote ourselves to a greater cause, life supports us.

I have also come to recognize that the Faery Rule, “A person’s word is bond,” really does hold true. I feel deeply connected with my friends from other realms, and time and time again, an over the top synchronicity occurs right after I’ve requested help in making a connection or finding the right supplies or support for our yard. Doors keep opening in amazing ways, even more so than my already magickal life before we moved to Goshen.

And so, I’d just like to express my gratitude to the entire Faery Realm, the Nature Spirits, Elementals, Devas, and the Tree People. I thank you with actions and offerings beyond my words. May we all continue to work together to heal this precious planet and to help those who have forgotten their connection to Mother Earth reclaim their inheritance. May we all be free under Natural Law.

Blessed Be and Blessings Share …
