Description

Most people are baffled at any idea that fairies could exist...and telling people you've had a fairy encounter is a major taboo. The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast hears from people who’ve had experiences and want to share them. Whether you’re already a believer, or full of intrigue, come open-minded and open-hearted…simply listen, and make your own mind up. But take heed, these are not winged Tinkerbells. These are real fairies. Please note: this podcast is not suitable for children as it may contain some unsettling, frightening or creepy material from time to time.

This episode is a deep chat about a number of extraordinary events and contact that my guest has experienced. The subject of a UFO/orb experience is covered early on but we do return to the subject of Fae. There’s so much cross over between fairy experiences and alien encounters and it’s been generating a lot of discussion for some time now. From my discussions with many listeners, topics about aliens and UFOs have also been gaining general interest, alongside fairy encounters.My guest shares how these encounters have developed for him over time, resulting in an ever-deepening spiritual path. The discussion was recorded back in May 2021.  There’s a bonus chat on Patreon, where we discuss more personal healing experiences and he enlightens me on the idea of Starseeds - people on earth who come from other planets and are here to help the earth and its inhabitants.  Please do subscribe, rate and share this podcast.

This episode offers a very gentle conversation with an Australian woman who encountered an orb during a very beautiful and intimate event, whilst in nature. The experience drew her ever closer to nature and into environmentalism. We discuss her relationship with the Fae and how that connection was originally initiated through visiting her grandmother’s magical garden with her siblings, as a child. There is an accompanying FREE PATHWORKING MEDITATION on Patreon which is available to anyone. It's a gentle guide to recentring yourself and it's particularly aimed that those who need a bit of help during this difficult time to let go of anxieties and focus on what's meaningful. You can find it by searching for 'free meditation' or 'recentring' on Patreon.

In this episode I speak to a fellow researcher, Thomas Freese. Thomas is also an author, a storyteller and an artist. To date he’s written 11 books and 200 articles.  Much of his research is focused on people’s extraordinary encounters with ghosts, nature spirits, angels, fairies, and multidimensional beings. In his storytelling role, Thomas visits schools and finds that  children often want to tell him about their own strange experiences.  We discuss this and some of the many Otherworldly encounters that he has collected over the years.  There’s a bonus episode on Patreon, where we discuss Thomas’s own fairy experiences and he also shares some very unnerving encounters with paranormal creatures known as black-eyed children.

This episode includes excerpts from The B.O.D.A.V.'s (The Books of Dreams and Visions). It's a personal collection of fairy encounters and vivid dreams,  experienced by a young man from the age of 11 to his late teens, provoked by night time forest walks with his father. Having had some awareness and interest in the Otherworlds himself, his father had encouraged him to journal these experiences. Our guest, now in his mid-twenties and undertaking a Master's in biological science, talks to Jo about re-reading the journals and some of the events that took place.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-15-the-books-of-dreams-and-visions/Warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In this first episode of series two 🎉 I chat with a guest who encounters an Otherworldly creature that we are quite familiar with in folklore. His response to the experience is admirable and most interesting. It's a great example of how faith, and spiritual connection (of any kind!) can aid us in our most challenging moments.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-14-guardian-of-the-mountain/Support the show Warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In the last episode of series one, I chat with Dr Neil Rushton, author of two fairy-related novels and fairy experience investigator. We discuss my various musings during this series and Neil shares his own fairy experiences. He also offers his perspective on why and how people see fairies and how this differs to the reductionist, materialist worldview on the matter. Neil’s blog site, deadbutdreaming.wordpress.com is an excellent resource. His articles cover fairy associated folklore as well as deeper digs into the connection between fairy encounters and altered states.

In this episode we hear about an encounter which took place en route to a Wiccan ritual in a large park in England. It’s a lovely share, as the experience was so gloriously matter-of-fact. Are fairies simply an aspect of Nature that we don’t currently understand? Do they pop up unpredictably  or are there circumstances which make it more likely? We touch on these ideas in this episode.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/make-haste-for-midsummer/Support the show Content warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In this episode we hear from a guest who shares his childhood experience of meeting a fairy. The encounter took place in his bedroom one morning while he was reading alone.  He finds it hard to access a clear memory of the entire event but the parts he does remember are of great significance to him.  In this case, our guest regrets how the experience was borne out and this has formed the basis of a decision to try and reconnect with the being. We discuss this sense of regret and how the memories began to piece together for him later, to become more meaningful in adulthood.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-10-stay-or-go/Support the show Content warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

Episode 9 of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast features the sort of experience that we might visualise from 19th century collections of Irish folklore. The encounter took place in Ireland, but was experienced just a few years ago, by a young Australian man as he toured around in his camper van. It’s a pretty epic story and he feels very lucky to have experienced this first hand. A whole host of apparitions popped up and each brought their own vibe to the events which unfolded.Some listeners may find parts of the content in this episode frightening.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-9-the-tall-folk-and-the-little-people/Support the show Content warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In Episode 8 of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast, Jo speaks to a British woman who had three very different experiences with fairies.  All encounters took place in her bedroom but were miles apart, in terms of her emotional experience in each case. In one incident, our guest summoned the courage to stand up to a nasty goblin-looking character. In another scene, she is set upon by a troop of tickling fairies and in the third encounter, a tree fairy provides much needed solace. Some listeners may find parts of the content in this episode frightening.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-8-the-good-the-bad-and-the-tickly/Support the show Content warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In Episode 7 of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast our guest describes a series of events which took place in an ancient wooded area in the north of the Netherlands. They include child-sized and two dimensional beings who appear and disappear, apparitions at the roadside and what sound like time slip incidents.In this particular episode, the encounters are particularly unnerving and it is not recommended for anyone who may be upset by creepy content.Warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

In Episode 6 of The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast our guest relates an encounter that she and her sister witnessed simultaneously, on an ordinary afternoon.  In the aftermath of the incident, the decidedly rational approach they chose to take, to process their experience, is particularly interesting. As with Episode 4 (Mysterious Illuminations), when the encounter is shared with another witness, it can deepen the experience and help to remove any nagging doubt about what took place.For more information, further reading and show notes go to:https://www.scarlettofthefae.com/episode-6-teatime-interrupted/Warning: These are not fairytales and the content is unsuitable for children.

I love this podcast. I am fascinated by encounter stories and I love the way the host expertly digs into the bigger picture of each encounter. This one in particular brought me a sense of hope in what feels like the very dark times we are in.
