Hi friends I was recently researching about fairies and came about a lot of information on the internet. It is really amazing how we children believe in fairies. They are not real but mythical beings. That is what the article on the internet says. But I believe in them anyway. However there are many beliefs about fairies and they are so different!
Earliest Belief – Originally people used to believe fairies to be magical creatures. They are supposed to be small in stature ranging from the size of a butterfly to that of a human child. Initially they did not have wings and their flying was due to the magic they possessed.
Christian Belief – In Christian belief the fairies are a class of demoted Angels. The popular stories goes that the angels revolted, and god shut the doors of heaven. The angels that remained outside became demons, those inside remained angels and those caught between became fairies. They have much good them but also are sometimes evil.
Pagan belief – The mention of fairies is even in the old pagan religion. Here they were regarded as minor goddess. In the era when Christianity was growing they were even regarded as evil.
Alchemy belief – According to the spiritual alchemy fairies are distinct from humans and angels. They are closer to elements of nature.
Fairies believed to be spirits – One belief is that fairies are spirits of people who had untimely deaths. They roam between the realms of men and God unable to come to human realm because they are dead and unable to go to heaven because they have time left on earth.
