There is this piece of local folklore that my grandmother told me- she told me that you must never wear red in the forest or the riverside because there are fairies there. I asked my mother and she explained that the fairies would latch onto red garments because it attracts them and they will come back with you and that’s bad or whatever because they don’t belong in this realm.

Back then I scoffed at my grandmother. Now I’m older and wiser and more of a lesbian and I have decided to go into these lovely Himalayan forests in my reddest outfit wearing my reddest lipstick and getting myself a fairy gf

Interesting – where are you from? Because various bits of UK folklore say that the fae can be confounded by the colour red: red vestments or string or even rowan berries (which are very red) can mess them up. 

I personally have been pixie lead four times. Once rendered null by rowan berries, once resolved null by poetry, one finally undone by a gift of fresh baked bread. The last was a Reynard fox who was a right little sod. This sort of thing can happen when you’re a witch.

If you feel the odd need to grab a fresh loaf or pick a berry? Do so. You’ll need it.

That’s interesting. The aforementioned lore is from India, but very localized there as well, from the mountains mostly.

As a witch I firmly believe that all these local lores coexist, and entities like fae and nymph exist in different forms and are bound by different rules in all these cultures. Which is why when you enter a new space you should consult the local legends.

I will keep your advice in mind! Every time I get an inkling to carry something while leaving for a place, I do so as a rule even if it makes little sense to me.

The Figure in Black

Australia’s Port Arthur was once a former convict settlement and later the site of an industrial prison. With such a long and brutal history it is hardly a surprise that the area has a notorious paranormal reputation. In 2011, the Poultney family visited Trentham Cottage and snapped the above photograph. Mr Poultney said the family had been through the house just moments before, and it had been empty which begs the question who or what was in the doorway?

After seeing the photograph, Port Arthur Historic Site tour supervisor Colin Knight said the shadowy figure matched similar sightings of former Port Arthur clergyman George Eastman, who has reportedly haunted Port Arthur since he died in 1870.

Dream Visitations From Spirit

There could be a variety of important reasons spirit will contact you in a dream.

Losing a loved one can be one of the hardest experiences in life to go through. After the loss, there can be an enormous feeling of sadness, guilt, and shame around their passing, especially if their death was unexpected or traumatic. Spirit wants to help with the healing process by letting you know that they are ok, and that they are still around, guiding and protecting you. One of the ways that Spirit does this is by dream visitations.

There are many reasons why you would receive a dream visitation from Spirit:

1. Simply to let you know that they are OK.

2. To say Thank You for completing a task that evolved them. An example of this would be you doing forgiveness work around something that they did to hurt you while they were here in the physical world.

3. You are going through a tough time in your life and they want to comfort you.

4. Special dates that meant something to you such as birthdays, anniversaries etc.

5. To warn you about potential danger that could be coming towards you.

Receiving a dream visitation from spirit is special and can leave you feeling emotional after it is over, especially if you felt them hug or kiss you in the dream. You may even wake up feeling that it wasn’t real and that it didn’t happen. Rest assured, it was real and it wasn’t something that you imagined or made up. Most likely after your first visitation you will experience more of them as time goes by.

lailoken:

“An alternative initiation rite into the witch cult was known at Llandwei Brefi in Carmarthenshire in the 19th century. Prospective witches would attend Mass on a Sunday at their local church The would secret the consecrated host in their mouths instead of su lowing it. Once safely outside the church, they walked widdershine (anti-clockwise) around the graveyard nine times. Nine is an important number in magical belief, and associated with the occult power of the moon. The would-be witch then fed the host to a large toad or a black dog waiting at the boundary of the churchyard at the lych-gate. This animal was said to be the Old Lad or the Devil himself in animal guise. Sometimes the witch kissed the toad and this may be a cryptic reference to the use of the so-called ‘sacred mushroom’, usually the red-topped and white spotted Fly Agaric toadstool (Amanita muscaria), or the Liberty Cap (Psilocybe semilanceolata), which grows on hillsides and moorland in Wales. These fungi were likely used to attain a trance state and contact with the spirit world. One south Pembrokeshire witch who was supposed to have per- formed this initiation rite was Moll of Redberth who lived at Carew in the 19th century. There were many rumours that she was a practitioner of the Black Arts and on her deathbed she finally confessed to the vicar. Moll told him that when she had attended her first communion as a young girl she had not eaten the wafer, but had hidden it in her hand. On the way home she met a black dog on the road and had fed him the host saying:

‘I thus give the Devil the body of the Lord that I may become a witch.’”
