Faeries, Nature Spirits & Nature Angels

by Elle Schlagenhaft


The English word faery comes from the French word fée, which stems from the Latin word fatare which means ‘to enchant’. In Scotland, the Fey are referred to as Honest Folk – Daoine Coire, or Little Folk – Daoine Beaga. In Welsh traditions, faeries are called Tylwyth Teg, meaning Fair Family, while in Ireland the Faery Folk are referred to as Daoine Sidhe or ‘People of the Hills’. (Sidhe means hill.) It is interesting to note that some believe the word Sidhe stems from the same root as the Hindustani word siddhi which means ‘something which controls the elements’

Within the Faery kingdom, legend names a variety of beings. Some of the more mischievous nature angels are called pixies, elves, imps and brownies. Faeries that work predominantly with water bodies are referred to as water sprites, water nymphs and lake maidens. Another type of nature angel is the Deva. Devas serve managerial roles and are involved in protecting areas of the Earth that need healing.

What Do Faeries/ Nature Angels Look Like?

In art and literature, the most common portrayal of faeries is that of small magical beings in a human-like form with insect wings. (Tinkerbell anyone?) While this is the most common portrayal, sometimes a faery’s appearance or ‘feel’ is tied to the plants/animals they are protecting. A good friend of mine is closely attuned to nature angels. She has noted that woodland faeries look and feel softer than desert faeries who tend to look and feel more prickly. She once helped me feel/see a desert faery that was near a small saguaro cactus. By using my 3rd eye, I was able to see the image of a greenish faery with ‘spindly’ arms and legs. This member of the Fey appeared to be part of the cactus, though I knew it was a distinct being.

What Do the Faeries Want Us to Know?

Maeve and Aine are stressing to me the importance of asking humans to be more respectful and careful with the environment. They ask us to pick up litter when outside, to use green cleaning products and to minimize our impact on the natural world by being respectful in thought and action when in nature. When I’m out walking and see a discarded bag, I know the nature angels are asking me to pick up litter. Sometimes I’ll come across the trash first and not have anything to put it in. When this happens, I ask the faeries to bring me a bag or container. Typically within a few minutes of the asking, I’ll come across a bag or box to put the litter in!

How Can I Meet a Faery?

Meeting a faery or nature angel is very much the same process as meeting your guardian angel. Most important is a sincere, loving and open heart. Next to that, it is best to be out in nature. Find a quiet spot and simply notice the beauty of the natural world. Allow your heart to fill with love, beauty and joy. While doing this, let the faeries know you would like to begin communicating with them. Stay open to what you are feeling, seeing and sensing. Don’t be surprised if you have to do this a number of times before you actually connect with faeries. To improve your chances of creating a relationship with the nature angels, live a life that is respectful to Earth – recycle, use products that are gentle to the environment, pick up litter, support environmental causes, etc. Anything you do that shows the faeries you sincerely love and respect Earth, will help you connect with them.
