Did I Witness the TOOTH FAIRY & Other Magical Beings?

A child, who had lost their first tooth, was awakened in the night. They observed a small bright light hovering near the bed and then entered through a small doorway in the wall.

The following account was forwarded to me by my friends Cam & Kyle at Expanded Perspectives:

"This incident occurred in Texas in the early 2000s. I’m not saying I saw the tooth fairy, but it was the night that I lost my first tooth. I wrote a letter to the tooth fairy and left it on my nightstand and had a glass of water by my bed. I was five years old at the time.

I woke up in the middle of the night because I heard the glass of water hit the floor. I opened my eyes and I saw a very small light moving slowly across the room, probably five feet up in the air. It was golden in color and small. It just looked like a dot of light to me, but I also had terrible vision and didn’t have my glasses on. As it neared the doorway to my room, a new doorway opened on the wall, to the side of the door, right over the place where a picture of my great-grandmother’s embroidery hung. It was like a black rectangle void, but it had red velvet curtains. The light moved slowly toward it, and that’s when I noticed the shadows. Silhouettes of animals danced all over my room, following the light in a line, there was a bear, a big cat of some kind. I know there were other shadows, but I can’t remember which animals. I looked and my tooth was still on my nightstand, but when I turned my head again, there was a shadow creeping at the end of my bed. It had fins like a shark or a dolphin, but it had two of them.

At this point, the light was almost through the doorway, and it seemed like the portal door was closing, but the thing at the end of my bed was getting bigger in size. Being five years old I did the reasonable thing and hid under the covers, where I fell asleep.

The next morning, there was money on the nightstand and a note from the tooth fairy, obviously in my mother’s handwriting. But the water glass that had woken me had rolled under my nightstand, still on the floor. If it wasn’t for the water glass on the floor, I would have thought the whole thing was a dream. The fairy didn’t seem interested in me at all, only the shadow at the end of my bed. A small speck of golden light.

Why a fairy? Mainly because it happened on the night I lost my first tooth, but the fairy didn’t take the tooth. I always thought it was just paying me a visit. I felt calm when I looked at the light, but the shadows scared me.

This experience left me obsessed with fairies through the rest of my childhood, but I never had an experience like that afterward. I’ve read a lot of lore and mythology about [fairies], in my opinion [they are] magical beings that can’t be seen unless they want to.

The animal shadows I saw that night haunt my dreams to this day. I don’t know if the shadows were fairies, or just hanging with the little gold fairy, but I only got the sense that the one at the end of my bed was evil, not the bear or the big cat. I thought the bear was funny. He was walking on his hind legs and waving his arms like he was dancing. The one at the end of my bed seemed cold and dark." Name Withheld

Little People tales abound in the Old & New Worlds. Every culture has a hint of folklore that involves fairies, elves & gnomes. For the most part, these beings are the same with only the name change. They are described as somewhat friendly creatures common in Native American myth who are seen as protectors and tricksters. However, in some cases, there may be a dark side associated with the Little People, even to the point where they are said to be cannibalistic dwarves.

Anyway, over the years I have received a variety of personal reports involving these creatures. I'll let you decide if the Little People are benevolent beings, or if they have evil intent.

If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer each.
