Ep 68: A Gnome Ran Across My Bed!: Maintaining Childhood Wonder

I chat to a woman originally from the south east of England, about her real experiences with fairy beings. They include childhood levitation, a bedroom based fairy visitation, and a multiple-witness sighting of a tiny humanoid disappearing into a hedge. She describes seeing orbs inside her bedroom as a child as well as lights in trees and we hear the strange case of a fairy-related text message which the sender had not written!

⭐️ In the bonus episode ⭐️

The bonus share is the story of a ‘Stick Man’ or ‘Tree Being’ which she and her husband became used to seeing around their home in New York State.  I hold a special place in my heart for these creatures. Having seen one myself a number of years ago. They appear to be sensitive, peaceful beings who are connected with the land in which they appear and are perhaps even guardians of that land. We hear snippets of previous guests encounters with Stick Men (some of them previous exclusive bonuses)

Some of the experiences described may be unsettling for some listeners who are sensitive to creepy content. These stories are not suitable for children.

  1. Hi Jo,

    Aoife from Instagram, I sometimes comment on your posts there and love the show.

    I wanted to contact you because I listened to Ep. 68 last night, and you discussed the whole phenomenon of children floating or levitating. Well, add me to the list. I have memories of floating downstairs as a toddler, age 3-4 I think. My memory is that sometimes I felt heavy at the top and would thump down physically on my bottom each step at a time, but other days someone, a figure I can’t identify, and am pretty sure wasn’t a physical person would encourage me to float down. Those were the “light” days. I would glide down. I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t always float. I have always put it down to childhood confusion between dream memories and waking memories. It’s natural to float in dreams, and at that age it’s probably hard to distinguish between dreams and reality. However I was astonished to hear my own peculiar memory being described by others, including yourself!

    1. Thanks so much Aoife! yes, we tend to remember these as dreams but I and many others remember them as memories. I’m so glad to hear that this resonated with you too. I think it’s fairly widespread. Would love to chat to you about it. If you felt like getting in touch, my email is scarlettofthefae@gmail.com
