Six True Magical Encounters With Real Fairies: (True Fairy Encounter Series)

happy samhain

The countdown to Halloween (Samhain) is on!

Do you believe in Fairies? Have you ever had an encounter with a fairy-like being? If so, write about it! What are you waiting for?

Do you know how I became a fairy whisperer? Let me tell you the story of the greatest experience I have ever had.

While on a walk during a warm, foggy morning in November 2014, I had a close encounter of the fairy kind. At the time, we were living in Pensacola, Florida. I still remember the day, as if it has been carved into my memory; something I will never forget.

The road I took on my morning walk

As I walked along the road, I heard a sound that instantly caught my attention. At first, I considered the possibility that the sound might be an injured bird rustling in the thick underbrush. I peered into the foliage and drew back in surprise. At first glance, I thought I saw a ruby-throated hummingbird with brilliant green feathers. However, that was not so.

Instead, appearing in front of my eyes was a tiny green swamp fairy fluttering on delicate wings that looked like transparent leaves. She had hair the color and consistency of corn silk. Bottle green leaves adorned her small body. The heady fragrance of lavender, patchouli, and sandalwood wafted on the air.

I stood there at the edge of the road transfixed by the vision. I realized then, I had witnessed a miracle. I had been given the gift of fairy vision.

The petite winged-being stared at me with eyes as green as the leaves she was hiding in. I must tell you, this meeting felt something akin to a spiritual encounter. An overwhelming feeling of peace and love surrounded me and held me within its grasp. In an instant, she was gone. The swamp fairy vanished into the fog that swirled around me.

I shook my head and continued my walk. My feet felt lighter that day. I knew something had changed. The swamp fairy had ignited my imagination. I knew what this fairy encounter meant. I had been granted the ability to become a fairy whisperer.

Soon after, I started to write stories about the swamp fairies which I posted to my blog. The stories came in quick succession. Next, the dreams started. I began to channel the stories of the fairy nymphs that had inspired me that day long ago.

Each day on my walks, I observed the real swamp as it was crowded out by the building of new homes. The natural wetlands were disappearing at a rapid rate. Slowly, a story began to form in my mind.

By fall of 2015, we moved to Colorado. The dreams continued and have grown even stronger. The stories changed.

The fairy nymphs wanted me to tell their stories. And, that is exactly what I have done. The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy is that story, which I published this year. Click here to read this exciting novel.

OOOO Spooky

So, share your fairy encounter in the comments or link to this post and I’ll mention you on Monday, October 30th in another post dedicated to Samhain.

In the meantime, this video will have you believing… watch it if you dare!

  1. Wow, that was spooktacular Colleen. I’ve had plenty of encounters with the beyond, but not spotted any fairies until you noticed an orb at my feet in a photo I’d taken in Arizona. 🙂 <3

  2. I remember your posts about it, Colleen. ♥

  3. I was totally blown away when you told the story for the first time and posted the photo! That encounter ignited something deep in you to get the message out into the world.

  4. I agree, Erika. I’ve seen more fairy orbs lately. They are always near. I’m busy writing so that is a good thing. I’m reworking book 2 during Nanowritmo and will be hiding out writing for the month. It’s time to get my thoughts in gear and get that second book out. I know you’ll love the direction Abby’s life will take. Thanks for your support. Hugs and love. <3

  5. amazing. i always teach my kinders about the fairies and try to get them to keep an open mind to them –

    • Yes. I always see them as more elementals and nature related, not like the Hollywood version. The video shows that the fairies are shape shifters, which is what I saw. I wrote the swamp fairy that way too. She looks like a hummingbird until she transforms into her real form. Keep that magic alive with the kids. It’s special. <3

  6. Wow, that’s a really wonderful gift. <3

  7. I’m all about the trolls, myself. 😉
    They come up a lot in my writing…

  8. Wow! I’ve never had encounters with fairies but loved reading your encounter. I’ve been seeing orbs, animals, colors, and rainbows.

  9. I recall your swamp fairy. 🙂 I’ve had numerous encounters with fairies, spiritual energies, ghosts… <3 Look forward to your Samhain post. (I hope to see a lot of those around.) Have a beautiful week!

  12. I enjoy your fairy encounter. It’s so wonderful and enchanting. I’m thankful it ignited and inspired your writer’s heart.
    Thanks for the video too. I’ll probably be spending quite a bit of time there on her channel soon. There’s a lot of videos with so many stories of some of my favorite subjects.

  13. Agree there rock fairies? I swear I’ve seen animated agates run away from my grasp on the waves! Now I know how you because the Fairy Whisperer! ❤
