Thanks, Nanja 😊. Nanja, do you mean both the dish and spoon had been taken to another part of the garden? Not where you had left them? 😲
Wow. Now that's impressive. I mean really impressive.

No worries, Nanja. Personally I like 'follow-ups'. I learn a lot from them. And I am glad you enjoyed my little story of the Rabbi. I believe (my own belief) is that things in nature are a lot like that Rabbi was. They can sense your intent.

Hello!

I found the dish back with the spoon on it. The dish was empty and clean. I found the dish back in another part of the garden. I have not seen any ants.

Thank you that you still want to help me. This is an old story for you. But for me still very nice that I get help. And can talk about it.

Valkricry, thank you. I thought it was a nice story. And it was a sweet gesture that you did. And also a very polite man.

Dear nanja,
Faes eat with there hands, rather they don't eat at all. Your applecake may still be where you left it. They jusy appreciate the feeling you left it with. Can you check your cake again. Any ants or any things on it please?
[at] valy,
Dont forget faes are not rabbis and are very touchy. 😊

Being of nature, I would think so. However, Rook or Saille might be better able to answer that than me.
I am going to share a small story with you. Back when I was around 6 or 7, I was on a field trip with my class. We were eating lunch and this old gentleman was sitting nearby. I thought he looked like someone's Grandpa, he looked over at us, and to my young eyes, he looked hungry. So I took over half of my ham sandwich and offered it to him. At first he said very politely 'No thank you,' and I must have looked hurt or something because then he accepted it, and I skipped off with the rest of my class. Later I learned from my mother, who heard it from my teacher, the man was a Rabbi. (Jews do not eat pork.) But he told my teacher that he had seen in my eyes, that I meant very well with my gesture, so he had accepted it, because the offer and my intent had been pure. Something given in that manner is very valuable.
I think your 'friend' feels the same way. It isn't the 'how' or 'what' you are offering him, it's the 'why'. He knows you are only trying to make him happy and that knowledge is what makes him happy. Does that make sense?

Hello,

Yes, it goes better with Folke. He feels better in the house and in the garden, much better actually. A very quick improvement.
But happy, I do not know. I hope that he will be home more often now, he is often away. He works very hard. I miss him very much. I hope that he will soon find another job. I hope it goes better soon.
I am not lonely. I have a lot of warm contacts in the nearby villages, because of my work.
When I am sad, I go into the garden. I always get a very warm feeling, like I am very welcome. I think he does this. I like to have him in the garden.

So he eats with his hands? Ok.

Thank you

Nanja

Hi Nanja,
First I am very happy that Folke seems to be doing much better. I've never heard of anyone leaving utensils with an offering. So, I would not think to do so is nessecary.
I do not think what you are doing is 'bad'. You seem happy. Folke seems happy. And your 'friend' seems happy.

Hello!

Thank you for all the advice. Folke feels better. A few days ago he was reading a book in the evening. I saw that he had forgotten to pull the curtains closed. This had never happened. Also in the garden he is doing very good. I hope now that Folke will be more at home. He works very hard.

I do not really do offerings, just a little. A few days ago I baked an applecake. I put it in the garden on a dish with a piece of cake. But not with a cakefork. I did not know if there was iron in it. I put a little wooden spoon. But is it necessary? Does he use it?

In the night it is better. I bought earplugs. Now I hear no more snoring and I can sleep. I also have no more need for light. I know where the "monster" is. Maybe is there a way I can tell him to not sleep there? It is weird and yes, boundaries are broken. I do not want to make him angry. Maybe I can keep it like this? Is this not bad?

Thank you again

Nanja

A poster advisor wrote about" boundaries". How do you tell a fae to not to go where he likes? The issue here being not the boundaries but the man feeling watched?
He shouldnt go where he feels "watched"

Nanja,

The idea about the stables was just a thought of mine. I was thinking that if the house was very old, and the stables as well that it was possible that at one point the stables would have been used for the purpose their name implies, and it would have not been part of human living quarters, therefore, a fae creature would not need invitation.

Even if the house was not old, the stables still would not have been part of the main house originally.

This is where I wish, you could sit down and have tea with the faerie's and ask for an explanation of the things they do. Could you imagine the history he could tell you?

Keep us posted.

Blessings,
Saille

Hello,

Saille, thank you for the explanation about the plans. It is clear to me now. About the offerings, I will follow my 'gut'.

It is good to know that he is benign. I read some things about fae, and not all are benign.

Hotrod, it is not friendly to try to scare me in silence. I do not live in a dictatorship.

About the stables. It is interesting to think I am sleeping in his bedroom? But he would also wake up next to a man because Folke sleeps there too, when he is home. And the previous residents too.

Pjod, this could be. We do come from a city, but Folke lived before that in a village, not as small as here, but not a city.

I talk to him every day in the garden. I am waiting. When I see change I will let you know. Folke has been away a lot lately, so I have not been able to see.

Thanks for the advice.
Do not fight.

I wonder if your husband feels uncomfortable, living away from the city. You mention that you're from a city, and I'm assuming your husband also? Perhaps it is only the stangeness of living in a big, quiet, old home that has him spooked? Just a thought.

Val - thanks for passing my words along to crs 😊 I do need to make a clarification, though, if you don't mind. Especially since I think I was part of the conversation you read concerning waiting a year to vote again on someone once you've been told to "vote for someone else."

I was told by administration, when I questioned this, to vote for different people and the restriction would be lifted. It was after I'd voted 10 or so times. Funny thing, at least to me at the time, was I'd only voted for granny twice and got that message 😆. So they do try to maintain control of point system.

Cosmogal was just absent from site for along time, which is why she made that statement about a year. If I'm wrong about why you made the comment about a year, I do apologize 😊

Val, I don't think it's a time limit on when you can vote for the same poster again, I think you can vote for them again after having voted a certain number of times for someone else. Could be wrong tho.
OP, sorry to comment on your story when I don't have any advice for you.
Saille, I've been enjoying your posts very much, you've taught me a few things.

crs,
First, I want you to know, I heisted the following from another thread. It was written by one of the mods, Miracles:
"Everyone has a different reason for giving points. Some give/take points based on whether or not they agree with your advice; some take points away if they don't understand what you've said; still others give or take points away based on what you said to or about someone else, not on your advice; some use the point system to stir up trouble; and there are others who probably don't even know what it's for." She also says (and others also agreed) that sometimes the wrong arrow gets clicked. Just plain old bad eye/hand coordination.
I hope that helps you feel better - at least a tiny bit. The theory of it being 'some kindof clique' doesn't hold water, and I will tell you why. We are each given X many votes we can use for any given poster. Doesn't matter whether they were positive or negative. After you've 'hit the ceiling' so to speak you get the message "Please vote for someone else." I do believe I saw somewhere that it takes about a year for you to 'vote' on that poster again.
Personally, I've enjoyed reading what you have had to say.
Just my 2 cents,
~Val

Hotrod,

I am not sure I understand what you are exactly asking. Is it possible for you to produce Beta waves? You already do that, all the time. You are awake and conscious in the world you produce beta waves Beta waves are basic awake, alert and aware consciousness.

Calm, relaxed, meditation would be Alpha waves. Those you can obviously create if you work through a meditation.

So if you meditate and allow yourself to be come calm, then yes you can produce the brain waves you are talking about just they are Alpha waves rather than Beta.

(Which in retrospect is strange because you would think that the state of being wide awake would be Alpha, and the state of being calm and meditative would be Beta. Regardless of what they are called, you can create them if you allow yourself to calm, and relax.)

Hope that answers your question hotrod,
Saille

Nanja,

Plans? The idea of plans is just a theory. Science even has its own version of it. In the basic sense, it is simply the idea that we are all existing in the same physical space, but that our perceptions are filtered so that we can only see what is on our own plan of existence most of the time.

I may not be doing the best job with explaining it, but when your friend is seen it is because for that moment, the two plans of existence are level, and you can see into it.

It is like with a radio. Imagine that he is a station, and you the radio. Sometimes you are in the right frame of mind, tuned to the right station so you can see him, and other times you only sense that he is there but you do not see him. It's like when you have to tune your radio.

As for him entering the house uninvited and entering your bed. A thought did occur to me, because that had been bothering me. Normally, a Fae creature needs to be invited. You ask them in. They don't just show up.

At first, I was thinking perhaps the previous owners had opened the house to him. Or, maybe something from nature was brought in and used as part of the house, which would give him an invitation.

Then I remembered that you said the bedroom is actually in a space that was part of the stable?

If that is the case, it is possible that to him, that does not register as a space he needs permission for, in fact, that may have been his resting place before it was yours, and it seems to him that he is the one waking up to find a sleeping woman next to him.

I agree that you should do what you feel is right to do with the offerings or not to offer. You take good care of the garden, and you know better then any of us what will be best for you.

If it will put you at ease to know Nanja, I actually have Fae in my home as well. I however, invited them in. They are mischievous and protective, but for the most part, I have not had issues with them.

I only 'see' mine once in a while, normally when I am not expecting it, but I seldom give actual offerings but there are parts of my house that are for them, that I have set up to be something they would like. I have prisms and sun catchers and plants within an area that when I settle into read a book feels very much like they have settled in next to me.

(Sorry for the lengthy reply)

Dearest Isolde, My last comment had nothing to do with you. I am speaking of my experiences so far and that comment was already shot down, I perhaps also took things too harsh and never hold anything against anyone but I do not understand when giving advice just out of negativity someone would vote a perfectly good and accurate bit of advice down, this is how I have been treated every since joining, this site. I will not let this negative and childish behavior of others get to me, I laugh at the ignorance of others. The Great Spirit takes care of such things. Of course we are good and I hope to be friends in the future.

Nanja, As I said I am 1/4 Cherokee and the gift of planting seeds from the fruits and vegetables harvested is a kind and respectful meaning to the faery folk.

If you borrow from an actual person, do you not give it back, if someone shows kindness do you not give kindness in return?

Mother Earth feels the same of her treasures. This has been a very good post and I am completely new to this entire site.

I have been forced to feel unwelcome by several and if this is how people treat one another, no wonder there is such negative spirits in their lives.

I have had only VERY few positive interactions with people on this site for my opinions concerning the supernatural. I am a true medium and sensitive and this has been verified by many across the country and other countries including a handful of doctors and my patients have been worn thin with those that joined this site with no experience and a lot of negativity.

I do not care how many people chose to vote me down out of the sheer negativity that is shown due to the fact that I KNOW what I am talking about and NOT just elaborating things out of thin air.

I have people coming to me from all over the world to help them and I travel to help them. I am a healer, medium, sensitive and show all love until I am shown disrespect. Respect is given when received.

Give respect to the faery and his work and he will protect you to show his respect toward you in return.

Dear Nanja,
Personally, since YOUR feeling in the garden was you don't need to make offerings, I would say then there is no need to. The ONLY person that can make that call with ANY assuredy is YOU. I say this because you are there, and we are not. I think your 'friend' is happy just to be acknowledged by you, whether you do it 'formally' with a toast or by leaving him an offering, or just talking to him in the garden now and then. Nothing beats a sincere 'thank you' on any plane. In fact he seems to have been 'alright' with the way you were from the get go.
This fae may even be actually quite pleased at the lengths you are going through to learn about him. I would think that if you were angering him in some way you would know. You would 'feel' it. In fact, contrary to Hotrod's theory that you are showing 'disrespect of his (the fae) privacy' by writing so much, I would think it would be pleasing to him as it is an open admission of his existance, at a time when he and his kind have been assigned to the world of myth and make-believe by most. If your writings 'bothered' him, I think you would somehow 'feel' his displeasure.
How is the husband feeling these days anyway? Better? Worse? Same?

Once again we agree and yet Hotrod you have to work in a snide comment or a 'slam' against someone and their opinion.

You have just said this...

"The question of disrespecting of ones boundaries does not arise. As no ones privacy has been intruded into."

Yet the disrespecting of ones boundaries started when the developers built a Home on, or rather 'in' nature thus 'wrecking' the natures spirits 'area', or in other words invading the nature spirits boundaries.

Now a nature spirit from this property is 'happy' that an individual has moved it that enjoys taking care of the garden on the property, it wants to show its gratitude by taking care of her... But while doing so it has 'invaded' her and her husbands personal space.

So, there it is in a nut shell, all summed up. No one is right or wrong. This is not a 'evil spirit', and neither individual means any harm to the other but boundaries need to be 'set' and 'respected'. Nanja came here to share her experience and get advice, which has been given.

Nanja,

Thank you for sharing, I wish you luck and please ask any questions you may have.

Respectfully,

Rook

Nanja,

We are all offer suggestions based on our experiences and knowledge. Often the BEST measure of how you should react is based on your 'gut reaction'.

What I'm trying to say is if your 'gut reaction' says run... Then run... If your gut reaction says everything is Ok then things are Ok.

Bottom line is that You respect the Spirit and he should respect you, and your personal boundaries.

Hello,
Touch him? No no, I had questions about the plans, how that works, and if he is really there, but if he is, and you say so, Saille, then I leave it at this.

I do not mind when I am in the garden to talk to him. I do not see him then, so it seems more distanced. But at night, no touches, no talking. He is already too close. Yes, Hotrod, I have no fear, but I think it is weird. He needs not be there, I wrote that in the beginning.

I am confused on the offerings. Should I do that or not? I got the feeling in the garden that it was not needed, but I do not want to make him angry.

What Isolde is saying is that people have 'personal boundaries' that should be respected by other people and spirits alike.

She is also saying that this nature spirit has entered Nanja's house with out permission and suggesting that Nanja tell this nature spirit about these 'personal boundaries'...they will respect the spirits boundaries if the spirit respects theirs.

At least that is how I understand how she is stating her Opinion.

Hi,
Uh... Reading my post again, and yes, maybe I came over too strong and in a way I didn't mean, sorry for that.
My basic viewpoint on the whole spirit/ghost situation is that I don't think one should accept behaviour that one wouldn't accept from human.
Of course there are acceptions.
Entering a home and then doing something the owner of the house is not comfortable (and I got this feeling that the OP was not entirely comfortable), be it jump on the coach, change the paintings on the wall, write on the doors, whatever you choose.
That's all.

Hotrod13, I am 1/4 Cherokee. The stories my grandmother told were of this nature and I do appreciate the fact that you understand what I am saying. Isolde plainly stated that he/she had no idea concerning anything about faeries then assumed I meant the worse. That is okay though, because perhaps Isolde learned a little something and will not jump to such negative conclusions in the future. I also explained why the faery was entering her room while her husband is away. TO PROTECT. Also in the future if Isolde means no respect then do not include the word at the end of the post. For there was no respect meant. Again thank you Hotrod13. ❤ ❤ ❤

Isolde the faery is protective meaning he is protecting her while her husband is away, not trying to hurt her or know her in a sexual way. This sort of faery is very benign. Protective as in if someone or something enters the house this faery will keep all harm away from her in and out of the house. As I said through their love of nature there is a bond that has been formed. Would one call the police on a ghost? I think not, because she is most likely the only person the faery is comfortable showing himself to.

My knowledge on faeries is limited to Tinkerbell (my daughter loves her) and the books of Tolkien, so no advice or opinion for the OP.
Just a question for [at] crs1336.
You wrote that for this fairy it is ok to enter her home while her husband is away. Huh? I'm sure you didn't mean what you wrote. Since when is it ok to enter a home and lay in a woman's bed without her permission?
What if had been human... Eh? Right, you would call the cops.
But then again, I'm sure you didn't mean that. 😁

Offerings do help. These faery folk do a lot of work and if you take of the garden that he has worked so hard on, without giving back it will not please him.

He works very hard daily because he loves the garden as much as you. He is protective of you, I assume he only enters the house when your husband is away. He snores because he is so tired due to all of the work involved which also explains the snoring.

You two have bonded and I am willing to bet that the garden requires very little effort on your behalf. Another way to give offering is to plant some of the seeds from the fruits and vegetables you have harvested. He will be very appreciative of this.

Your husband is a closet sensitive meaning he feels things and is uncomfortable with anything regarding the unknown due to negative past experiences. Your husband must remember that no matter where you guys move, the unknown is always here with us.

I did read some of the other posts and seen nothing of giving back, only of offerings, what has been taken must be given and this is of the utmost importance to Mother Earth and the creatures that look over her land, however he does sound very benign and protective, he does appreciate the efforts that you have put forward so far. What a treasure of land you have there. ❤ ❤ ❤

Hotrod,

That is a good way of putting it. Basically, the place between sleep and wakefulness is an altered state of consciousness, and because of it, she can see him, and should actually be able to interact with him as if he was just like you or me.

I have had a great deal of time to learn to keep a level head about things. Someone once told me that knowledge was a powerful tool, which could be wielded for good or ill intent, and when I heard that, I did not really understand, as an adult, and a magical arts practitioner I now know exactly what that means.

I've seen people use their knowledge to insight fear, and confusion in others because it makes them feel powerful. They throw out terms, without explanation, or offering up outlandish stories that can't be verified as proof of some extraordinary power.

We will have to wait and see what she is able to learn about her fae friend. I think each persons interaction with the faerie realm becomes uniquely theirs at some point and what others have known and experienced can only guide you so far.

It is just nice to have someone else around who has an idea what you are going through.

Hope the her freind starts communicating with her and we will be able to know about such beings. Do they have a body like we do? What are the limits of their psychic powers?
Peace
😊

Hotrod,

I did not say she was lucid dreaming. I said she was in a lucid state. I just meant that she was aware enough to notice that he was sleeping next to her and think it strange, and still close enough to sleep to actually see him lying there.

Lucid dreaming is an intentional act, in which the dreamer is aware they are dreaming and by this fact is able to control the content of their dream world.

I do not know what your acquaintance was doing but if that was the outcome, clearly it was not a lucid dream.

Saille,
I would like to agree with you, nanja and her friend being in a state of lucid dreaming.
But.
Once an aquaintance got cancer, in a very advanced stage.Saddened,he decided to spend his last days with some muslim mendicants. One night he lucid dreamt that four persons in white picked him up, took him to the makeshift bath and operated on him with a razor blade.
In the morning he found himself cured, and in the bathroom, his cancerous growth was found thrown in the bin. Can it be also explaind as a lucid dream?
Peace

Nanja, I think in this case fair doesn't mean beautiful but less...ugly. Although I have heard tales in which they are quite beautiful. However Saille makes a good point about the black lips and eyes. Which ever he is, he seems to like you and want to help you, which is why I wondered if he might be Ljosalfar.

Nanja,

It was not a silly question. It would have been silly for you not to ask and then worry over such a thing. There are many legends about various creatures, and it is very difficult to tell which are true and which are not without doing research. I like to do research so I am glad to offer what I have learned.

I had to think about the best way to answer your question about touching him. Yes, you should be able to touch him, because during those times that you have seen him, the two of you are on the same plan. So you share space.

I do not see any reason why you could not touch him. If you are concerned about how he might react to being touched, ask first.

Hello,
Thank you for the replies.

I am sorry if my questions about babies was a silly question. But the answer is good to know. One less worry.

Valkricry: Fair is same as beautiful? He is not attractive, but ugly.

I do not understand your last comment as good. So he is not there? So if I tried to touch him (his hand) there would be nothing (if I have courage)? How does it work?

Val,
My friend thought Svartálfar because of the black lips, and eyes. He could be Ljosalfar, since, in reality, the Svart in the dark elf was actually a reference to where they came from, rather than their actual coloring.

He does not seem terribly mischievous where she is concerned, in fact, he seems to want to look out for her.

Nanja,
I did think of something that it might interest you to know. The reason you can see him in the bedroom, and not in the garden is not because he is physically in one place and not in the other, but because of your own state of being in those places.

He has awoken you with his snoring each time you have seen him if I understood correctly? It is not that he is physically in your room at those times. It is instead that you are in a lucid state which is allowing you to perceive his presence.

Faerie exists on another plan. It is all around us. We just in our normal waking lives are unaware of it. You can learn to see it the way a psychic learns to use their skills, but there are some people and some places where the to plans are on the level, and if you allow yourself to drift in those places you will see it, sometimes I think they see you first.

Saille,
I think she feels easier just having an idea of what it might be, and being believed. Although you might ask your friend if this creature might be Ljosalfar (Light elf). Less mischivious than the Svartálfar, but pretty much the same, and fairer to look upon. They are said to be quite powerful have been known to give aid to men, and are of the wind and brightness. Since it really wouldn't alter anything you said, I don't think it makes any real difference. But I found it interesting, and thought your friend might too.

Nanja,

I have never seen any documented proof that a child has been stolen by the fae.

The stories that circulate about faeries stealing babies are designed to protect children. If you think about it, how better to ensure new parents are careful, and watchful of their new-born infant, then to tell them that if they are not, the faeries will come and steal the child and leave a changeling in its place.

There are also stories of faeries stealing the old, and infirm. Basically, the weak of a society. This is an attempt to explain an unexpected loss away. Someone goes missing, in some ways it is say the faeries stole them than it is to admit, that perhaps we allowed them to slip through our grasps in a careless moment.

It also provides and odd kind of happier alternative. Would you not rather a missing person, child or adult have stumbled into faerie, instead of meeting an untimely end at the hands of a fellow human, or an animal, or to have been left at the mercy of the elements.

So I can say that with certainty that a child is not going to be stolen by the faeries.

In fact in that house I would say your child, like you would have a powerful guardian. Fae protect children because they are precious and innocent and pure.

Hello,

This morning I entered the garden and said I did not want to make him angry, but I'm not too sure what to do. I got a warm feeling that all was well and that he did not want gifts. That it was good.

Saille, our house is located between two villages. Around us is a lot of nature, yes, forests.

Thank you for your help.
And you are right, he is overstepping.

Thanks for the advice on the books. I definitely look at them.

I have another question. About a year or so my husband and I want to start a family. I've heard stories about the fae who steal babies. Will my future baby be safe?

Nanja,

Hotrod is correct you do not have to make offerings. In fact, if you are making an offering because you think you have to, it sort of defeats the purpose of making an offering in the first place.

A nature fae would not be coming to you with the hopes of inciting fear. He is entering your home, your bed if anyone is overstepping boundaries it is he.

Faerie is a vast and varied realm of creatures. I am not going to bombard you with a list or anything else, but if you are curious do some research.

The reason why I leave offerings for the fae I work with is very simple. I have requested their presence, taken up their time, which might well be infinite, but I, nevertheless, have asked, and feel that a thank you of more than words is due.

If you want an interesting and lovely introduction into the world of faerie take a look for art work by Brian Froud.

There are two decks of oracle cards, and a couple of books that he has put out with his art work and ideas about the faerie realm in them.

Also, if you are curious about what kinds of fae are out there, there are a number of books on the fae. I have The witch's guide to faery folk, and through the Faerie Glass.

I hope everything is going well.

I feel you don't have to offer him anything. Ones nice feelings and gratitude make the best offerings. One doesn't have to make a show of ones affections.
I feel the green one likes you and cares for you.
You should google yaksha znd khidar again, more extensively. You will notice that yakshas, fae and the khidar all have green bodies and live in nature.

You have done nothing wrong. Wine is made from natural things. I am sorry I did not include it in my list. I just have a circle member who can not have it.

Offerings made in good faith and from nature are fine. The only thing I would not offer a nature spirit is something made from iron.

The fae do not like it. It is considered harmful.

I spoke to my friend he is in the process of scanning in information for me to give to you.

I am with you, your post is very informative. From you I have come to know what offerings the green ones like. Which is good.
In india the Yakshas are allways painted with a green body. It seems faes, the water djinn, yaksha and the islamic khidar, and your stvar are different names of the same entity.
The water djinn, the khidar and maybe the yakshas too abhor wine.

Nanja,

I wanted to say I am sorry, because my friend has not provided the link, and my searches have not turned up much useful information regarding the Svartálfar.

I do not know if your 'friend' is a Svartálfar. I do know that your descriptions sounded terribly familiar, as if I have read it somewhere before, or heard another person give me similar description.

Nature spirits, elementals, and guardians are fairly common. He could be any one of those things. Given the way he reacts to you, I would think guardian, and his coloring and the fact that he seems to be 'from the garden' makes me think nature spirit.

If he is a nature spirit, then given what you have described I do not think he means you any harm.
There are things to remember when dealing with spirits of nature. They are powerful. They are something that should be treated with respect. One should never command, or make demands on a creature that is part of the planet herself.

If you want to make offerings, a staple for offerings to nature spirits has always been local honey.

Please keep in mind that I am coming at this from the stand point of someone who has worked with nature spirits for years, and while I have not encountered one exactly as you describe I can say with some certainty that I have encountered some of his family.

I do have a question. Your house, is it near the woods? You described the garden at the back, and the road out front, but what is behind the house and garden? Are there woods? Another house?

The reason I ask is if there are woods, or you have access to nearby forested land. You can leave different kinds of offerings, just think of things that are safe for forest creatures to eat.

I live near the woods. We are surrounded by them, so I leave honey, apples in winter, wheat and barley in late summer.

I do not know if anything I have added is helpful, but I wish you the best of luck.

Well wishes to both you, your husband, and your fae friend.

The nature fae likes you because you love your garden, and he rules over the plant kingdom. Your service to the plants pleased him. Therefore he is benevolent towards you. My feelings only.

Dear nanja,
Maybe your husband should try some meditation everyday? It will give him strength.
Both nature fae, yakshas and khidar are green in color and are nature spirits. Try google "khidar".
I believe you shouldnt talk to the air. And the toast ritual seems to have made things worse. Stop it for a few weeks.
Its my opinion.
I suggest your husband znd you both meditate together.
I believe, as your husband is a little jittery you please show him more love znd affection. To me he appears a very nice person.
Nice day to you
Peace ❤

Nanja,

I was thinking specifically about the Svartálfar. They have been described as you have. To the point that my friend who is an Asatru heard the description you gave his first response was Svartálfar.

I am by no means knowledgeable on these beings. My friend is, and he promised to send me a link. Which when he does I will relay if you wish.

What you described sounded faerey in nature to me, I am familiar with a number of beings that fall into that category. They are not necessarily what I would consider nice, but they are by no means evil.

Rook,

Thank you. I meant with speaking to 'air' that it is what it feels like. I do not see him in the garden, so it feels like talking to nothing. But I will do the toastings.

Hotrod,
My husband felt really uneasy the last months. Just tell him to 'relax' does not work. I hope it improves now. I googled 'yaksha', but those do not look like the creature.
Previous lifetime? I do not know. I do not know much of his personality. Why do you think it is in common?

Saille, I looked at dark elves. They are not green in the description. But maybe. The description tells they are mostly evil.

I am worried. I hope things will go better.

This might sound strange, but the creature you are describing sounds a great deal like a Svartálfar. They are a kind of dark elf. Norse in origins and dark as from a dark dwelling place, rather than a reference to their nature.

As far as I know they are not harmful, and can be protective. This one seems to have taken a liking to you clearly.

Perhaps your husband senses its presence, but is uncomfortable with the sensation.

The possibility of your 'friend' being a incubus is high, there have been many cases of them being less or more physical and it would explain your husband's uneasiness.
Incubi are also able to take on different physical traits depending on your personal preferences.
More or less I don't think you should be worries about being harmed, why not try speaking to it?

That was my point, hotrod. Everyone is entitled to their opinion or theory when an event occurs that is unexplainable. It makes no sense when someone claims to know exactly the cause and or solution to any high strangeness situations.
Recently someone posted an account of an event that took place in the back seat of a car while driving through a particular mountain region. A poster responded to the account saying they know who/what occured, as they also were there through astral projection- or some such silly thing. People have been trying to discover the nature of all things unexplainable, since the dawn of awareness- yet, a few posters here have it all figured out somehow.

Mmmmm... I wonder. Sometimes, Hotrod, your English seems quite good. So, I don't believe you when you tell Rook that you can't explain things to him in English, because it is too bad of quality. I think it is just an excuse on your part. In those posts your use of the English language seems 'worse'. I suspect even that your English is quite perfect, and that you imitate a non-native speakers. Your mistakes are not the mistakes in grammer and words I would expect.

But hey, just my two cents.

About the testing part, why would it test?Rook,im not insulting, but at times you act so childishly.

Giving voice to thoughts can help them 'take form'. I am not asking Nanja to 'speak' to the air. I'm suggesting she speak out loud to the nature spirit that resides in her garden... The one she has told us about in her experience.

As for her Husband feeling 'more uneasy'...perhaps the spirit is 'testing' his resolve to make sure he means what he is saying...

I'm not sure I'm right, I am offering suggestions based on my own experiences and the research I have done because of them.

You have asked me...

"Dont take things at face value or too literally. Read between the lines."

Should Nanja do the same about what you have suggested to her? Or is yours the only opinion that matters?

(More on that in another comments thread... Look for it soon)

I asked you a simple question, trying to increase my knowledge and possibly understand where you are coming from... This is not the first time I have done this. However each time I have done so you avoid answering me with 'rants' like your last comment.

WHY?

And I would request you take it easy with dishing out advice to nanja. Now she is talking to the air. Does she neec to? She has such a close relation with the yaksha that they both can communicate psychicly, only that nanja doubts what her soul tells

her.
Dont think the ritual has helped, rather it may have created a rift between the couple.
I have a reading that her hubby is a little more confused and edgy.
No offence ment.

Hotrod,

During my research I have read about the Yaksha, which, if memory serves me right are a broad class of nature-spirits, usually benevolent, who are caretakers of the natural treasures hidden in the earth and tree roots.

But another source said something about the Yaksha being both half-god and half-demon. They live under the earth where they guard the wealth of the earth, and are ruled by Kubera, the god of wealth. Described as...pot-bellied, squat creatures considered to be keepers of water holes.

Which is 'more correct' and how do either of them apply to Nanja's situation in DENMARK?

Respectfully,

Rook

Nanja,
Yaksha=indian language
Khidar=muslim/arabic
Nature fae=english
Yakshas are extremely strong demi gods living in jungles. They are so strong that they could kill a human with thier psychic powers in the blink of an eye.
They are very wise and knowledgeable and can give excellent advice. They have the power to be present at many places at the same time. It would not be a good idea to challenge as they expect respect from humans.

Hotrod13 (141 posts)

Nanja,
Regarding what yakshas want from humans, I think your case is different. This spirit likes you because
1.Both of you have almost identical personality, similar interests, you seem to be an extension of him.
2.He cares for you and likes you with an almost paternal affection.
3.His behavior towards has been consistant, caring for you when ever your husband had been out of station. His behaviour has not been finicky at all but of being protective.

4.Could it be he has known you from a previous lifetime?
5.Yakshas have a strong kind of energy which is somewhat draining on humans. You have never felt that way. So its benign for you.
6.Your husband can feels its energy but cannot understand it, hence he describes it as him being watched and hence feels insecure and wants to move. Tell your husband to not to worry, and you need to show more affection to him so that he feels secure.
Yakshas don't like wine. They only want respect from humans, but from you I think he would love some gratitude.
Peace

Nanja,

Nature Spirits can be a bit 'finicky', giving things time is a good idea. A 'toast' to them, say once a week... Spill a sip of wine while watching the sunset with your Husband... Should help the spirit (s) understand your intentions to stay on the property, that you and your Husband respect the property and the 'spirit (s) '.

Please keep us updated.

The paper and pen were on my nighttable. The laptop was on a different little table at the end of the bed, also on my side (space reason). I did not have to get out of bed to get pen and paper. I was alone in the house, only human being.

We live here for a year. My husband got that job 5 months ago. We did the ritual on sunday. So just a few days ago. He felt uneasy for a long time, so this will not go away suddenly. We have to wait. I hope we make it to summer, it is beautiful here in summer.

Hi nanja,
How are you?
I loved reading your latest post.
I can be wrong but I feel that idea to film the nature spirit didn't go down very well with person in question. I very strongly feel that it was him who closed the laptop. Again it was he who caused you to go to sleep. Such beings have great power and can easily read your thoughts. Heck they can even predict the future, cure a number of ailments. I feel he is friendly to you and you don't have to worry as regarding your husbands security.
Just tell your husband to relax and take it easy, to be unafraid.
Your green friend has not until date demanded anything from you. I also feel that as you are not aware of the green ones likes and dislikes you shouldnt offer him wine or anything. Maybe he doesnot like wine.
The common thing you and the Green one is the love and the attraction for your garden.

Nanja,

Did you have to get out of bed to pick up the pen and paper? If not you may have just drifted back to sleep and this 'spirit' had nothing to do with you 'going back to sleep'. As far as the laptop goes... Was there anyone else in the home that may have closed it, not knowing you were using it to record?

Giving things time is a good thing... How long has it been now? If you can 'hold out' until Summer I think you will have your 'answer'.

As far as your Husband feeling 'uneasy' is he 'worse off' or 'just a wee bit uneasy'? Compared to the way he has felt?

Thank you for the update and please keep us posted.

Last week I was alone again. I put on the laptop so it could film my bed and put paper and pen next to it. I woke in the night of the snoring, saw my laptop was closed, did not look next to me, but first took pen and paper (I still had courage) and wrote that my laptop was closed. The snoring stopped, I looked next to me and looked in two black eyes, I felt very very tired and next thing I know is I wake up in the morning with pen and paper in my hand. Could he have made me go to sleep?
Laptop was still closed, on the film was only me sleeping and then end. I do not think I closed the laptop by myself, then I would have seen myself move. The film did not show anything of him. I could read what I wrote on the paper.

My husband came home that day, I told him everything (most of it, that I had seen the creature, but not that it was on his 'spot'). He got very panicked and within a few minutes we were in his car driving away. We stayed in a hotel, talked and he agreed to do the ritual. But I made the promise if it did not work, I would not object in going away.

We did what Rook said and I talk now to 'air' when I work in the garden. My husband still feels uneasy, but I think we should give it time. I tell 'it' that I can only live here with my husband. That if he keeps feeling weird or he gets hurt or worse, I will leave.
Just wait to see how this goes.

Thank you for your advice.
