I can relate to this experience you had, Candie. I used to spend a large part of my day in the forest where ever we lived at the time. Most Army posts are near forested areas.

I used to go into the forest and play there and I stayed all day long. I didn’t feel I could relate to most other kids. The forest was magic for me. It was like being away from both time and space. I used to see fairies in the forest. They looked to my eyes as just fast moving wisps of light. Sometimes even leaving a little trail as they flew.

One time I was walking along in the forest and the leaves were really thick on the forest floor. Being a kid I never thought about snakes (Keith brought this memory up when he had a snake on him at TMI) so I just went along. Then I heard a very distinct sound. Even a kid knew the sound of a rattle snake and there was a large one very close to me and in striking position. I don’t know what people should do when they are confronted with a big rattle snake but my kid brain didn’t give it a thought, I took off running fast. As I turned to run a bright streak of light flew between me and that snake. I don’t know exactly what happened next because I was running, but I have always felt that bright streak was a fairy and I’m pretty sure I would have been bitten had the fairy not intervened. As far from my home as I was, I probably would not have made it out of the forest had I been bitten by that snake.

Not long ago there was a comment on Facebook directed to me that said, in an off way, how silly fairies are. Well, I never know what to say to that. I have always felt that a fairy saved me from being bitten that day. I usually just say to people that there must be something in those legends, after all, look at all the “fairy tales”.

I loved this little story, Candie!

How large was that copper pyramid in the room? I’m curious because I had a 6 feet tall, copper pyramid made for me a long time ago. I still have it too. It’s so big when it’s put together that it’s hard to find room for it. I didn’t know it would be that big when I ordered it. It’s really a good place to meditate inside. Copper is so energy conductive. I need to find that. We moved here this last summer and some things are still missing somewhere in this house. The house isn’t that big either. lol
