Small World of Magical Beings

Guest Author - Robin Henderson

What if just below your feet there was a tiny world of small magical beings and creatures? Youíve read about them in fairy tales and other magical stories; have you ever wondered if they do exist only that they are not visible to the human eye? The stories which tell about these delightful creatures describe their worlds as being full of flowers and greenery, as well as toadstool houses. Here we shall look in and take a peek at the life of these secret magical beings.

Fairies, sometimes called faeries or fae, are magical creatures that have human-like forms or appearance. Some are said to be very beautiful beings with wings and tiny, while others are depicted as being tall or having troll-like features. Fairies hold special magical powers with which they can cast spells or see into the future. They can be very kind and gentle, but they can also be very devious, playing tricks and even kidnapping babies. It has been told that these beings love jewelry and trinkets, oak trees, and dancing during the night.

Pixies, also called Piskies, are also described as being human-like and having wings, but also having pointed ears and wearing pointed hats. They are said to be fun spirited and playful in nature. They have a great love of dancing and music. Like the fairies, pixies are said to be helpful to humans, but can also have devious ways. They are said to kidnap children and to steal horses.

Gnomes are described as being miniature sized beings with long beards and pointed hats. They are very jolly and good hearted, while having a great sense of adventure. They keep close to the earth and are often said to have homes from natural sources, like toadstools and trees. They love nature, animals, and keeping gardens.

Brownies, whom are also referred to as brown elves, like to dwell in houses rather than out in nature. They are also very kind, helpful, and are at their busiest during the night hours while the humans are asleep, doing house chores and other work around the house. They mainly like to stay in hiding because they donít like to be seen by humans, but sometimes children may catch a glimpse of them.

Some other types of beings from the world of magic are goblins and hobgoblins. Goblins are described as being smaller in size and have different kinds of appearances, such as pointed teeth and green skin. They are said to be extremely mischievous and often like to battle. Hobgoblins, on the other hand, are more amused with things and tend to be tricksters, often trying to stir up a little trouble. They are also called bogies or bugaboos.

After reading more about the smaller sized world of magical creatures, do you think all of those fairy tales were just stories of the imagination? Or, do you think there really may be a hint of truth behind those tales? Maybe there really is a tiny world of fairies, gnomes, and goblins hiding just below our feet!
