Love Letter #76: That Time I Went to the Fairy Realm

Yes, I am talking about fairies and magic today…because, why not?!

Believing in things beyond our sight can be challenging, but many of us have faith in a higher power without ever having seen it.  So, is it truly unimaginable to consider the possibility of visiting the realm of fairies?

Last evening, I participated in a Spring Equinox Celebration in preparation for the actual equinox next week. In the sacred circle we drummed, sang, danced, honored the goddess Ostara, and opened our energy and ourselves to new beginnings and rebirth. I love these rituals, and gathering together to honor the changing of seasons within the earth, the stars, and our own selves.

At one point, the ceremony turned to welcoming fairies into this experience, which took me back to one evening when I had a mystical experience and went to the fairy realm. 

It was a warm spring Friday evening a couple of years ago. I was still living in the house on Whitin Ave with the garden in the front yard.  Brian had come over and we had dinner together. It rained a bit and when the rain stopped, Brian suggested we go out onto the front porch. 

When we stepped outside, it felt as though we had crossed into another dimension, another world. The air was warm and moist with mist that hung in the night air. It wasn’t fog, nor rain. It was a gentle, light mist that formed a sort of veil over the night.  The world around us seemed to hold its breath, creating a serene and mystical ambiance. No traffic. No people. Silence. 

The moonlight danced upon every surface, casting a soft glow over the glistening leaves and flowers in the garden. Everything in the garden sparkled. 

It seemed as though the entire neighborhood had faded away, leaving only us and the enchanting beauty of the night. I believe we entered the fairy realm, another dimension outside of this one. 

In that suspended moment, as we stood there side-by-side, a gentle visitor graced us with her presence – a doe, elegant and graceful, moving with a quiet confidence through the darkness. Her eyes met ours briefly, acknowledging our shared experience before continuing her journey into the night. It was a scene straight out of a fairy tale, a moment of pure tranquility and wonder that resonated deep within our souls.

As we stood there, enveloped in the magic of the night, I couldn’t help but feel a profound sense of peace and connection to the world around me. It was a reminder of the beauty and mystery that surrounds us, waiting to be discovered when we take a moment to pause and appreciate the wonders of nature. 

I simply don’t have words to truly capture the essence of this experience yet as I write this love letter, I am easily transported back to the beauty and the feeling of those moments.

The fairy realm had opened its doors to us that night, offering a glimpse into a world where the ordinary transforms into the extraordinary, and every moment is filled with possibility and enchantment.

With love,
