Woman Relates Her Perception of Possible INTERDIMENSIONAL FAERY FOLK as a Child

A woman recalls her encounter with various Fae as a child. She states, "‘I suspect [fairies] inhabit another dimension that overlaps our own from time to time."

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

"I had been playing with a younger brother in our backyard back, in the summer twilight in the 1960s. It had been a botanist’s house, and he had installed many rare and unusual specimens that frequently grew out of season. Where the back garden appeared to end at a river stone wall jutting past both sides of the garage, actually there were hidden stairs to a private upper walled garden that was wilder and quieter than its closer counterpart, and on a steeper hill than should have been possible.

The night grew suddenly silent. Clouds of light like fireflies rose from the ground, but the light seemed more diffused into a bright cloud. The light grew to doorway size, and people began to walk through it. There were male and female, taller than the adults I knew, and so beautiful that I ached to see them. They wore strange robes and were on foot. Somehow, they seemed familiar, and I moved closer, to see them better.

One woman near the front seemed to command a group of short, stout beings with skin like dark tanned slick leather, hair, more like dark animal fur, and longer arms. I had felt no sense of fear or danger until I saw these creatures, and I broke into a cold sweat of panic when I saw them. Like the taller people, these seemed familiar somehow, but dangerous. Unlike the taller folk who walked forward at a stately pace, the dark creatures scurried near the ground, snuffling and grumbling as if they were tracking something.

One spotted me watching and began to crash through the brush toward me, but a very blonde woman near the lead saw it. She looked me straight in the eye, and her eyes widened as if she were startled to see me. I knew that she communicated mentally with the creature, and she seemed to rein it back with something like a slender golden cord that materialized at the creature’s neck. Complaining, it rejoined the party.

A short distance forward, the party entered another glowing door-like shape and gradually faded to nothing. I tried many times to see the party again, or any trace of a portal, but I never did there. The following year, my family moved away.’ ‘Some were moving forward with a purpose that did not involve me. The shorter, darker ones seemed dangerous, hostile, and hungry.’ The large party was very quiet, with a dry leaf rustling sound. The short, stocky ones made animalistic grumbling, growling, sniffling noises. ‘I suspect [fairies] inhabit another dimension that overlaps our own from time to time." V

Popular shapeshifting creatures in folklore and legend are werewolves and vampires, as well as gods, goddesses, and demons. Lycanthropy is classified as a mental disorder in which the victim believes that they are a wolf or some other nonhuman animal. There are also metamorphs, in which a living being changes into a known or cryptid entity. An example of this phenomenon is when a Navajo native practitioner transforms into a magical being, or Skinwalker, with evil intentions using witchcraft.

While the popular idea of a shapeshifter is of a human being who turns into something else, there are numerous stories about animals that can transform themselves as well.

The following accounts include a mix of supernatural shapeshifters, though some of these examples are not well-known. So relax, listen to the reports, and make your assessment as to the nature of these transformed entities.

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