Ep 73: Green Gnome Visitation Changed my Life (Oklahoma)

A most poignant story about a little boy from Oklahoma who came face to face with a gnome in his bedroom.

As a child he had felt very alone and afraid for much of his childhood but it was an Otherworldly being that reached out and showed him love. Now as an adult, he recalls how this experience, “changed (his) life and the way (he) saw the world”.

Trigger Warnings:
Our guest describes having survived an abusive childhood with aspects of neglect. As an adult, they were the first one to find their parent who had sadly, passed away.

In this Patron-exclusive full-length version, we hear of another experience which you may find shocking. Our guest’s elder brother was attacked by some kind of Otherworldly creature which is well-known in Native American Seminole folklore.

Our guest shared the following picture of a Duende which he says looks similar to the being he saw:

Interestingly, while looking for the artist of the above Duende I came across this intriguing story about ‘The Toucan Man’ who, in Belizean folklore was said to abduct children (this is a well known folkloric trope). Although our guest did not hear music, the guy who later told our guest’s brother about his encounter, had heard music.

It sounds like a different sort of being, however there are some interesting similarities also with the patron-only section in which our guest’s brother received deep scratches to his back when encountering another, more terrifying entity. :

  1. This interview was so sensitively and gently done. Kudos to JHH for creating something so calming and pleasurable to listen to. What a fascinating experience as well. You hear tales of being pixie-led, of the Fae playing terrible tricks on humans, but to hear that this Spirit of Nature conveyed love and caring to a neglected child was a revelation to me, changed my whole perspective on them.

  2. Showed me that there’s a huge potential for healing, for connection. So exciting!
    And let me thank JHH for the exasperation and anger I felt expressed as she spoke of the systematic suppression of our connection to nature and to ourselves. I’m more appreciative of her statement than I can say. Thank you for saying what needs to said.
