Ep 76: Otherworldly People: Encounter on the Thames

Jo Hickey-Hall speaks to Frank Scannella about his encounter next to the river in Walton-on-Thames in 1982. His story ‘Meeting Nicola’, was published in the, “It Happened To Me…” section of The Fortean Times (Issue 350, 2017).  This episode was also released as a video on YouTube.

The sense of uncanniness about this meeting has always stayed with Frank. There are many liminal aspects to consider: the proximity to water, crossing a bridge, the time of his life between studies. As well as this, various folklore motifs abound: black dog, dark man, strange stillness in the environment (Oz Factor) and the way that the beings appeared and disappeared in a mysterious manner.

Most of all, there was a sense that one cannot fully describe. But you will know, if you’ve ever had a brush with the Otherworld.

The main image is Frank’s own impression of ‘Nicola.’

⭐️ BONUS EPISODE ⭐️
In the bonus episode on Patreon I share related folklore about river-related merfolk, we hear some comparable encounters submitted to Simon Young’s Fairy Census and we end with a particularly unsettling story that was posted on Reddit. It is a strikingly similar experience of a young man who came into contact with a strange man along the river in York, England, featuring lost time and other very strange factors Both men view their experiences as near misses with beings from the Otherworld and feel lucky that they lived to tell the tale.

Ep 75: Winter Solstice Centaur

A winter solstice trip to a cottage in the forest, brings an Austrian couple face to face with a human/horse hybrid. This will leave you with many questions, I’m sure. If you are thinking of taking a trip into forest areas this Christmas then…keep your ears and eyes peeled!

⭐️ BONUS EPISODE ⭐️
In the full length episode on Patreon, you will hear the second experience this same man encountered with his now-husband some years later. Again, it was a horse being but this time it was a beautiful experience accompanied by an aspect of The Lady.

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.

⭐️ BONUS EPISODE ⭐️
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. :

Ep 72: Californian Gnome Portals

Our guest describes a sighting in 2016 in California, which occurred after a plant medicine church meeting. Whilst sitting in his car waiting for a friend, he watched two gnomes, no more than three ft tall in height, appear from a bush one after the other. They ‘waddle’ across the street and disappear into another bush.

(Apologies for the poor sound quality! I have done the best I can with the file – it was much worse to begin with). 

⭐️ BONUS EPISODE ⭐️

In the exclusive bonus episode on Patreon we hear of a multiple witness sighting of a white glowing human-sized figure after taking part in an indigenous ritual. It was observed on private land and the owner of the land appeared to be aware of the spirits that he shared this space with. The encounter lasted several minutes and the being emitted a ‘headlight’ type of light which shone into his eyes.

Ep 70: Anubis & The Hat Man: In the Shadows

We hear of one woman’s experiences with shadow people. The first appears as Anubis the Egyptian Protector god, while the other is a well-known archetype:  The Hat Man – an entity who has appeared to many people and is traditionally seen as malevolent…though the story shared in this episode provides another perspective.

TRIGGER WARNING
There is a trigger warning for those who may find it hard to listen to my guest describe her unhappy childhood and the content itself is rather unnerving. Skip this one if you are sensitive to creepy content.

⭐️ BONUS EPISODE ⭐️

In the exclusive bonus episode on Patreon, our guest describes a more recent mind-blowing ‘divine’ experience which was hugely transformative.  A powerful force poured through her body and took her directly to experience what I refer to as ‘Source’. Since that time, her life has taken a new direction. She finds herself in a long-lasting happy relationship pursuing what she feels she was born to do – helping others.

Ep 69: Beckoned by Forest and Lake: Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Our guest describes his extreme childhood experience in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, involving musical enchantment, levitation, loss of time and senses and deep connection to raw nature.

We hear how he was enchanted into the woods and ended up in a potentially life-threatening situation. Despite the intensity of the experience, he hold the view that it opened him up to a new way of seeing the world. A truly remarkable story and a much treasured share.

A second experience was described during our conversation. It is just as amazing as the first and will be released nearer winter solstice.

TRIGGER WARNING
This story contains descriptions of a child finding themselves alone in the forest and getting into potential danger in water. Although thankfully they were not harmed, it may be a trigger point for those who are sensitive to these subjects.

Ep 67: Patrick Harpur: Daimons and The Otherworld

To kick off series 7 we are joined by author, Patrick Harpur who is well known to many of us for his book, Daimonic Reality: A Field Guide to the Otherworld. I also highly recommend reading The Philosopher’s Secret Fire: A History of the Imagination which sheds a lot of light on the sorts of experiences we hear about on this show, along with his other non-fiction book, A Complete Guide to the Soul.

Here we talk about Patrick’s family’s relationship with the Otherworld and whether an openness to their existence aids the potential for personal encounters. We ponder the eccentricity of our modern western culture in denying the existence of daimons and Patrick offers ideas about which gods may be ruling us at this time. 

I hope you enjoy this discussion. Let me know on Instagram and Twitter.

⭐️ In the bonus episode on Patreon⭐️

Patrick reveals his fascinating, childhood treasure-finding experience. Locating treasure is very much connected with beings from the fairy realm. It’s a lovely share.

Ep 64: ‘The People That Aren’t People’

A woman from San Diego, California shares a whole host of extraordinary encounters with people who took the appearance of human beings but felt decisively, not-of-this-world.

From a strangely terrifying family in a Walmart car park to a disappearing cowboy, you may well find that these stories strike a chord with some odd encounters of your own.

Perhaps the most intriguing of all, ‘The Hitchhiker’ may lead you to question what is really ‘real’ anymore. Is the Universe communing with our subconscious by way of metaphors and archetypes?

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

⭐️ In the bonus episode ⭐️

🌚 Our guest shares some more personal experiences which took place just outside her home and also more recently, within her home.
