From the Author
HOW I CAME TO WRITE THIS BOOK... In my wildest literary dreams, I never expected to write a book about faeries. But in 1992 when I moved to Hawaii from New York City the strangest thing began happening: the flowers and trees started talking to me -- and Believing in Faeries
was born. What I've discovered is that faeries are nature spirits. And their sole purpose on earth is to nurture and support our natural surroundings. Their realm is as real as cloud banks and morning dew. All of us, at some point, have had contact with their realm. It doesn't matter whether you're a business person, factory worker, or farmer. Each of us has walked in a beautiful park, tended a few plants, or camped in the woods. During those times, we've all felt or sensed something peaceful, almost mystical. That's their kingdom. All they want from us is to relate to them and to our surroundings with genuine kindness.
Believing in Faeries is a glimpse into their extraordinary world, filled with truths and principles that can help us transform our lives. With the new millennium upon us, and all our environmental challenges, we need to forge a new relationship with this amazing realm. Our destiny as a planet depends on it.
From the Back Cover
Ask any small child and they'll tell you: Faeries are real.
But ask any grown-up in a business suit and they'll just snigger and walk away. Why? Because, sadly, they've forgotten how to believe...
Believing in Faeries is and inspired journey into the elusive realm of nature spirits. Beautifully illustrated with faery art from a master. Here is a gift for any grown-up who's ever lost touch with the magic of childhood; a children's book for adults who need more whimsy in their urban lives.
From the prologue, 'A Pea Grows in Brooklyn' describing the author's first experience meeting a faery in her own backyard, to chapters revealing faery secrets such as 'How to Walk Through Walls' and 'The Mechanics of Flying', Believing in Faeries offers an insider's glimpse into a world we've all forgotten. But a world at our fingertips!
Other books about faeries are just that - books about faeries, filled with myths and stories. This book is uniquely different. It is a modern day instruction manual directly from the mystical realm itself; a 'Celestine Prophecy' brought back from the natural world. It takes the reader on a rare journey into a kingdom governed by ancient principles and powerful truths that can change our planet.
Believing in Faeries promises to alter the way we view the world.
