My guest’s numerous encounters include a multiple witness sighting in some British woods, the story of a haunted fairy painting that you will never forget and a Samhain-timed brush with the Fae on Glastonbury Tor.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, our guest reveals that these experiences run in the family. Sit back, relax and listen to this fascinating collection of stories from a long-time experiencer of the Otherworld.

Episode 45: The Genius Loci

It’s the 2nd birthday of the Podcast! 🎂  🎉 

In this special episode I return to the location of my fairy sighting, on the island of Jersey, to meet with a woman who had a very similar experience to me, at the very same place.  We exchange notes during a picnic and I am blown away by what she has to say. 

Did she meet the same fairy being? And if so, what does this suggest about the nature of these experiences?  

Warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children. Some episodes may contain details which some may find unsettling or frightening. The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast is designed for listeners 16 years and older.

Show Notes

In the episode I mention Martin Brofman, creator of The Body Mirror System of Healing. I trained with Martin from 2005 until 2014 when he passed over. He was a very dear friend and the healing he gave me in 2005 completely changed my life. I saw and experienced the world in a very different way after that healing (literally – I had been short sighted and when I opened my eyes I could see all the leaves on the trees outside the class and details of people’s facial features across the street).

The first thing I said when I opened my eyes was “the fear has gone”. I hadn’t even realised I’d been so afraid of well…everything. And had been walking around like that for years. My life was very different from that time on. I feel the transformation as a result of the healing – coming back to my true self, with clarity and without fear – was a factor in seeing the fairy in 2007.

I am a fully qualified Body Mirror System Healer and I do take appointments when I have time.

You can attend classes in the system all around the world. Highly recommended!

Bonus Episode

Over on Patreon the bonus records us leaving an offering at a nearby tree and our discussion of anomalous lights seen over this location and another site in Jersey.

Ep 44: Contact with Star Beings and Coping with Personal Awakenings

Todd Grube is a long-time experiencer and a previous guest from Episode 21, Awakening to Them

I talked with Todd about the apparent upsurge in encounters and people’s personal awakenings.  He describes his observation of an orb-like ship that shot into the sky from a lake, near his previous home. He and his wife later experienced entering the ship. After that time he began communicating with what he describes as, ‘Star Beings’.  

Todd shares some more recent experiences he’s had with what appear to be yoga deities. He also suggests some meditations and exercises for letting go of old thinking patterns.

On the bonus episode on Patreon, he reveals another experience with what sounds like a being from another Star System, who had a message for him 

Todd teaches yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gung in Sweden where he lives with his family. He provided our Patreon group with a ‘tea ceremony’ workshop last year which introduced us to a whole new way of connecting with Otherworldly beings.

Ep 43: “Listen to your kids…they are closer to the soul world”

My guest describes how he supported and encouraged his son’s explorations and experiences with beings from the Otherworld.

I previously spoke to his son, Tristan (now aged 27), in Ep 15 but here we hear about how, as a father, he became a scribe for Tristan’s mystical encounters. Their moonlit forest walks, packed with extraordinary visions and interactions, were documented between the ages of 11 to 19 and form a collection called, The Books of Dreams and Visions (B.O.D.A.V.s).

Episode 42: Into the Wilderness

Originally from New Zealand but living in Vancouver, our guest tells us of her Otherworldly experiences whilst on a vision quest in the Rocky Mountains. She also describes a number of UFO sightings and offers some insight into her husband’s upbringing in a First Nations community.

We end with a good ol’ chat about energies of place and reflect on the journey of transition that the world is currently going through.

Warning: These are not fairytales. The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast is designed for viewers and listeners 16 years and older.This episode is particularly unsettling and is unsuitable for children or anyone who might be sensitive to creepy content.

Show notes

Our guest described her experience of “the little people” as clearly heard children’s laughter, though at the top of a mountain in potentially dangerous conditions, there were no children in the vicinity. Sounds of unusual strange laughter are sometimes reported in conjunction with Otherworldly experiences. People do occasionally describe hearing children giggling with no apparent source.

Simon Young’s Fairy Investigation Society Fairy Census (2014 – 2017) is a collection of reported encounters. The census is ongoing and you can report your own experiences at The Fairy Investigation Society. The following entry, no. 306 was reported by a male from Michigan, took place in the 1990’s when the witness was in their 20’s. They were by themselves in woodland between the hours of 6pm to 9pm. They report feeling a ‘profound silence’ before the experience:

‘While out walking after having eaten dinner, on a moonless night, taking a ‘short-cut’ through the woods behind the library in *** (a small stretch of land that runs east-west between ***and ***) I heard the sound of small indistinct voices talking, whispering and laughing from trees around me. I could see nothing, but caught glimpses of small black shadows moving in the branches. The night was pitch black and impossible to see, and though I had walked the path through the woods many times and houses with lights could not have been more than a hundred yards away, I felt quite lost and confused of my way. On a whim, I reached into a pocket of the backpack I was carrying with and found a small metal bell that I had found someplace and had kept as an oddment. I tinkled it for a few minutes and said aloud, ‘Here, you can have this,’ and hooked in on the nearest branch I could reach in the darkness. The woods seemed a little less dark and the path, though not visible, was suddenly discernible underfoot, as a flat clear space to walk. I quickly found myself out of the woods and on the sidewalk and made my way straight home without looking back. I went back to look for the bell the next day. But it was nowhere in sight.’

Simon Young’s Fairy Census (2014 – 2017) The Fairy Investigation Society

During the episode I read from Ron Quinn’s book, The Little People (2010). The book contains reported encounters from New York State, in particular the Catskill Mountains region.

This week’s bonus ‘Lost Time’

Our guest describes a playful prank between First Nation shamens which resulted in an extraordinary ‘lost time’ event. Released 11pm, 26th September.

Episode 39: Glorious Creatures

A 74 year old woman who has been psychic all her life describes how, in early childhood, she played with fairies in her garden rockery.  In that same garden – a monk’s retreat in times past – she  recalls seeing ghostly robed figures wandering around in prayer.  We discuss how psychic abilities seem to run in families and she reveals how she was once requested to read a nun’s aura!

Series Four sees a return to fortnightly episodes 🎉

In the BONUS EPISODE on Patreon, our guest describes the way in which psychic abilities seem to have passed down her own family line and she divulges a very useful method of protection when communing with Otherworldly beings.
