A Complete Guide to Faeries & Magical Beings

  • Jul 18, 2007
Rating:
+5
The mythology of faeries is extremely rich. So many cultures have stories and legends about faeries, little people, and other such mystical creatures. Moreover, there are probably as many differing descriptions of these beings as there are stories. Some are beautiful and genial. Others are ugly, deceptive, or downright dangerous.

A Complete Guide to Faeries & Magical Beings is a good overview of the subject. The author not only includes the information contained in a myriad of mythological stories but also touches on contemporary beliefs and recorded incidents in modern times. She even includes exercises that bring one closer to various natural forms often associated with the different types of faeries so that the reader may increase the likelihood of having his or her own experiences. A section called the "A-Z of World Fairies" is included at the back of the book for easy reference.

About this book

Wiki

If you have ever believed in a world beyond the everyday, this is the book to help you find it.

A Complete Guide to Faeries and Magical Beings is a wonderful companion for those who wish to tour an enchanted world. Cassandra Eason begins with the myths, legends, and real evidence surrounding the origins and existence of fairies and then takes us on a journey throughout the world to introduce us to the many different varieties of these mysterious beings.

From fairies to viking giants, selkies to gnomes, fey beings abound. In this spritely volume, Eason shares fascinating anecdotes of people who have actually seen them. And if you’d like to meet them yourself, Eason also provides simple techniques, exercises, and rituals to attract, find, and communicate with the little people. Hang silver bells by a window. Keep potted plants in your home. Or sit quietly between two oaks at dusk or dawn.

Fairyland mirrors universal human issues: fortune versus misfortune, fate versus free will, perfection and imperfection, illusion and objective reality, different time scales, the existence of parallel dimensions, and the duality of human nature. Some people even believe that fairies are becoming more visible again, as they were in pre-industrial days, to remind us of the consequences of consumer society — the danger of being seduced by our own versions of fairy gold.

"If you want to be happy, be."
— Henry David Thoreau
