On Faery Craft - © Rt Revd Alistair Bate M.A.Div. (2020)
As a child brought up in the foothills of the Dublin mountains I was brought up with the awareness of fairies; made little rock houses for them and talked to them at the bottom of the garden. Then as a teenager I made frequent pilgrimages to the several neolithic sites within walking or cycling distance of my home, which further strengthened the connection, but it was in my flat in London that I had my first brief clairvoyant sighting of a Leprechaun who ran down the hall, jumped on to a flowerpot and vanished. In fact this may very well have been my own Leprechaun guide, drawn for me around the same time (1991) by Britain’s most famous psychic artist Coral Polge. Coral was a clairsentient so she drew as she "felt" and was usually very accurate. Drawing my guide she expressed surprise as she had "never had a Leprechaun before", which of course made a 27 year old feel very special!
For those who would like to learn about Fairycraft/Faery Craft I would recommend the work of Morgan Daimler and Emily Carding, and for those who wish to experience a magical retreat here in this enchanted valley I offer an invitation to come and experience the world of the elves and fairies for yourself!
