The Thunder Spirit Garden

The Thunder Spirit Garden 

The Fairy Realm and its Inhabitants

The fairies live in the same world as human beings but in a different dimension, which is known as the Lower Realms; the Lower Realms contain 3 realms, and the different fairy societies live in the first of the 3 realms. The fairy tribes that I work with (or are around me) are the following: elves, gnomes, dwarfs, blue angels, trolls, sylphs, nymphs, flame dancers, salamanders, leprechauns, flower fairies, tree fairies, garden fairies, hobgoblins, brownies, unicorns, fauns and satyrs.

All of the above listed consider themselves to be fairies; the word fairy is to them what we humans describe ourselves as, human beings. Amongst humans are different races and amongst fairies there are different races.

Some of the societies are ruled by a higher court while other are ruled by a king and a queen, for example some of the elf societies listen to a higher court while other elf societies are governed by a king and a queen, or put in other words, each of the many fairy societies has its own court or king/queen.

How to Attract Fairies

Let me share the bad news first: There are many ways to try to attract fairies but making the effort does not mean that they will come to you. I have come across countless websites and books where the authors have long lists of how to attract fairies by performing intricate rituals, casting spells, baking special cookies etc. Unfortunately none of this will work if they do not find you honorable; there is nothing you can do or say to make them come to you if they do not find you worthy.

Fairies choose the humans they want to associate with and if they do not show up there is not much you can do to change that no matter how hard you try. All the rituals or spells in the world will not attract them if they are not comfortable around you. Fairies are able to see what we are all about; they know our true character. I does not matter what we show on the outside because they are able to see and read our energy field and that never lies. Worst case scenario for anyone who tries to invoke the fairy people over and over will be that you make it very comfortable for the dark fairies to move in and then you will have a big mess on your hands because the dark ones create havoc where ever they get an opportunity.

Dark Fairies and Parallel Realms

Before sharing the good news about how to attract the fairy people, I think I should explain some history about the dark fairies. A very long time ago humans and the various fairy societies walked the earth together. They never lived together, rather you could say that the two races (humans and fairies) lived in separate communities and the fairy people allowed humans to visit from time to time. Amongst other things, the fairy people taught humans how to survive by sharing their expertise on earth medicine and how to make use of minerals and metals for use in technology so that we could progress as a race. There came a time when humans thought of themselves as superior to the fairy people and went to war against them to have control over the world and all people. (Not much has change since those days in this regard.) Humans took everything that the fairy people had taught them and turned it against them.

Ever since this betrayal many of the fairy people have shied away from humans; masters in magic and controlling energy as they were (and still are) they moved out of sight from humans to a higher level of vibration, to a different realm of existence. This vibration level has always existed, like a first home, but when humans went against them they decided to move back to this realm and they have stayed there ever since.

While the majority of the fairy people never gave up hope of human and did eventually forgive us, they never have forgotten and still grieve humans’ ignorance and malevolent behavior. Unfortunately there are some fairies (what we call the dark fairies) that have never forgiven us for the way we treated them and they are out for revenge. The dark ones do not care if you are pure at heart and wish nothing but good, all they can see is that you are of that race that once betrayed them.

So what do you do if you suspect that dark fairies have moved in? More bad news: You need help from an expert to get rid of them because putting salt around your home and/or iron and flint stones (traditional things that often are listed as ‘antidotes’ against unwelcome beings) will not help. It is true, however, that any human is more powerful than any negative entity and by a simple command as, “I demand you to leave”, will force them to leave. But by the time that you are aware that dark fairies have moved in, it is very likely that the damage has already been done, that they have accomplished their destructive mission.

The very nature of the fairies – as of humans – is energy, so you can only fight back with energy; you have to find someone who has knowledge of how to connect to a higher level of vibration and from here direct the dark fairies to leave. Shamans are in particular masters of this, and when the Shaman enters into this higher frequency he or she will be aided by the friendly fairy people because they cannot stand hate and anger and they will fight against negativity of this kind. (Side note: “Fight back” may be a wrong term to use because when we ‘fight back’ we usually engage ourselves with anger and hatred which are energies that give the dark ones more power. A more correct way to phrase this is blocking their energy or neutralizing negativity, which Shamans are experts in. Keep in mind also that dark entities are very pleased when they can put fear into humans; they feed off of fear which thus gives them more power.)

Friendly Fairies and Humans

And now the good news: The fairy people (of the Light) do fall in love with humans but not in romantic or sexual ways as we humans put in context with love. Rather ‘fairy love’ is extremely pure and deep. They live and breathe love; they are the most loving spirit beings. Anger, hate, greed, jealousy and so forth are concepts that they will not tolerate or take part in. They operate from love.

For fairies, when they love you they also help protect you against dark fairies. As I mentioned above, the dark fairies wish nothing good to happen to humans. These fairies have not been able to let go of the destructive ways that humans have shown through history, and they seek revenge. But when you are surrounded with the fairies of the Light, you are also protected from the dark ones; the friendly fairy people guard and protect you against them.

When the fairies of the Light fall in love with humans, although it is rare, it is forever and they will never part from you; they will stay with you during many life times – but know that they can turn their back at you temporarily: They detest anger and hate, and they will not be around you if you are angry and/or hateful towards someone or something. Thus there are conditions involved. They will not part ways with you if you keep working on negativity in yourself and in your life. They will forgive occasional ‘slip-ups’, but they demonstrate their dislike by leaving you alone when you feel and/or express extreme negativity. Being upset is a different story: This does not entail extreme negative emotions and they will do their best to cheer you up. After all, they understand that ‘we are only humans’ and they will not part ways with the ones they have chosen to be around.

My husband and I are so very fortunate to work closely with different fairy groups, and the love we share for one another is totally beyond what we usually put in context with ‘human love’. When the fairies fall in love they do not hesitate to share their abundant knowledge, wisdom and insights; they share information on all kinds of mysteries of life; they share information about other realms and about this planet. They educate us in everything from how we can better ourselves and this planet, to how to use botanicals for medicinal purposes. (Their main concern as the guardian spirits of the nature is of course Mother Earth.) But while educating us, they also show their love through tremendous playfulness (they love practical jokes); they will travel with you if you go on vacation; they will cheer you up if you are down by moving small objects around in your house and/or give you something nice that they found somewhere, and they will empower you in different areas of your life.

I remember the time my mentor Keinna was visiting us from Canada. Keinna is of an ancient Shaman lineage and I think a perfect way to describe her vast knowledge is: “What Keinna does not know is not worth knowing”. Or put in other words, nothing is new to her and nothing surprises her. Anyhow, my husband and I were sharing some stories about how we find pennies around the house from time to time that the fairies leave. She got this impish twinkle in her eyes and commented, “If the fairies really love us they would leave silver instead of copper, after all how much can you buy with a penny?” Of course this was all said as a joke. Later that evening she was in our bathroom washing her face. She came out of the bathroom laughing. She opened her hand and showed us a dime. She told us that as she was turning the water on to rinse her face and “someone” threw a dime on her. All she could do was laugh and say, “Well I told them to leave silver!” This is very typical example of the fairies playing around.

The Cunning Gypsy (Part 1 of a Fairy Tale)

The Cunning Gypsy (Part 1 of a Fairy Tale)

Once upon a time there was a noble Queen and a young Princess. They lived peacefully in the kingdom of Shayde until an evil King took the throne. He was kind and fair at first, allowing them to live in the castle. Yet as time went on, the King became cold and cruel toward the Queen and Princess. They were so scared that they never left each others side and slept in the same room with the door locked. Their fear became greater when they learned that the King was preparing to execute them by the end of the week.
One day, the Queen and the Princess went to the local market. Within minutes of being in the crowd, the Princess had gotten lost and was panicking. Every shadow held an agent of the evil King and she hurried to escape into the light. She nearly screamed when she turned a corner and bumped into a young, blue-haired woman in colorful skirts.

The young woman tumbled backwards and flipped up to her feet with a pretty smile. “That’s a rude greeting.”

“I am sorry, but you scared me,” the Princess replied. “I am in fear for my life because the King wishes to have my mother and I killed.”

“Then, you should run away,” the young woman stated.

“My mother and I would not know where to go,” the Princess admitted with tears growing in her eyes. “I am the Princess and she is the Queen. Neither of us has ever left the kingdom. The King would surely pursue and capture us.”

“In that case, you’re lucky,” the young woman declared. She bowed to the Princess until her long, blue hair covered the ground. “I’m Sari the gypsy. Escaping is my specialty and I would be happy to rescue you and your mother.”

The Princess was speechless as she looked that young woman. Sari was short and could not be much older than the Princess herself. Yet, the Princess had heard of the mysterious gypsies that wandered the land. They were considered thieves and tricksters by some and heroes and entertainers by others. One look at Sari and the Princess could tell that both stories were probably true.

“What would we owe you for helping us leave Shayde?” the Princess asked out of curiosity.

Sari gracefully spun on her toes as she thought and her hand stroked her chin. “I can get what I want whenever I want. I never find myself in need. Though, I might find something along the way. Promise me you’ll let me have what I want when I ask for it. I assure you that it won’t be steep.”

“You have my word,” the Princess said without waiting to think. “Can we escape the castle tonight?”

“Of course, but you must get me four things,” Sari said. Gently she led the Princess back to the crowd where the Queen fretted and fussed. “A sweet cake, a leg bone, a hook on some twine, and a whistle of wood. Those are all I need to save you and your mom.”

“I will buy those for you before I return to the castle,” the Princess agreed. She hurried to tell the Queen the good news and prepare for their freedom.

That night, the Queen and the Princess were excited and scared. They were dressed all in black and hid coins in their boots, wondering what waited for them beyond the kingdom of Shayde. It was midnight when a click came from the door and Sari wandered in with a smile on her face. The gypsy was still dressed in bright skirts and a cloak, which the Princess thought was odd for a late night escape.

“Why are you wearing that?” the Queen asked in dismay.

“Because these are my clothes,” Sari said with a grin. “May I have the sweet cake that you promised I’d get?”

The Princess politely handed the yellow cake to Sari, who split it in two. To the shock of the Queen, Sari gobbled one half down in the rudest way possible. Before the Queen could speak, Sari walked to the balcony and threw open the doors. She laid the cake on the railing and looked out to the stars.

“We cannot jump from here. We must go out the front door,” the Queen said with concern.

“The King is prepared to kill you at dawn. So tonight we must fly,” Sari happily claimed.

Sari breathed out and a mist left her lips as the magic of gypsies caught on a breeze. The mist disappeared beyond the far walls where a new form quickly came into view. Large wings of brown feathers and fur of gold could be seen in the moonlight as the griffin silently swooped onto the balcony. With a purring coo, the beast snatched up the remaining sweet cake and nuzzled Sari on the head.

“Lucy will take us to the forest’s edge,” Sari said as she hopped on the griffin.

The Queen and the Princess climbed up on the beast and hung on for dear life when it flew to the sky. Several shouts rang out as they saw guards run around the castle. The evil King saw them too and scowled in fury. He would chase them immediately upon his fastest horse, which would still be too slow for the fast flying griffin. Within minutes, the capital city was behind them and they were soaring among the clouds.

The Fairy Realm

The Fairy Realm

I wanted to share with you all,my view of the Fairy Realm . I have some stories to share of my own Fairy,and also an encounter with what some call a "Dark Elf".

It must be said,again,that with everything I write about on Devine Miracles, it is with my own beliefs that I share with you,after collating endless amounts of information,and my own experiences in these matters. I don't claim to know everything,but rather, I claim to want to have as much knowledge as possible available,thereby offering you all the chance to make your own spiritual and life decisions.

By now we realize,that fairy's are everywhere, although,because of housing and mass destruction of eco-systems and nature around the world,I do believe this is effecting the amount of fairy Folk,and the trust they are placing in humans.

They are most concerned with the environment,and it is their job to take care of the earth,not to take care of humans!

I don't believe it is appropriate too ask for them too grant wishes,however they have been known to do this- usually by surprise! 

There are many legends of Fairy Lore, and all sorts of do's and don'ts,on the subject,some of this is rubbish but some of it is true.

My friend whose name is "PIP" is a flower fairy.The traditional looking fairy that we think of-kind of like an Autumn version of "Tinker bell" 

"PIP" & I met when I moved into my now husbands home 2 years ago. It was not a visual thing at all,but somehow I sensed that this Fairy was talking to me whilst I would work in the garden. He would give me jobs to do & give instructions for my husband Chris,on what to do next in the garden! ( Much to his surprise!) Basically, Chris was not allowed to do any cutting of the grass-or trees-unless he asked first! Also he had too keep an 'overgrown' area up the back of our yard,for the Fairy's too play in! Any shrubs or smaller trees,where to be left alone,unless he absolutely had to remove them. So our yard is full of flowers & shrubs of all kinds!

They told me too keep crystals in the pets' water dish, & avoid harsh chemicals and even bad language whilst in the garden!! ( I really didn't realize I used bad language all that often!!) "PIP" is kind of straightforward in his views and thinking,but since trying hard to remember to be respectful of these wishes,I feel that more Fairy families,are moving in!

My Dark Elf Encounters:

I also believe there are a couple of mischief makers in our home! (and possibly in yours!) For example, I often lose my keys,and look everywhere for them,sometimes two or three times in the same spot-then I say out loud "C' mon,put them back please!" & I go back to where I had previously looked,and there they are! Also I believe socks and loose change are hidden by the house Fairy's,as they think its hilarious to watch us flutter around looking for them!
There are other types of house fairy's called "Dark Elf's" These are what typically scare children in the night, or when you go to your room and its dark,& you are searching around for the light-which never seems to be even on the right spot on the wall,you might get a little racing of the heart-this is the "Dark Elf" & they can be very mischievous!!

So here are 2 stories about the 'Dark Elf' that lives in my house.
One night,I was having trouble sleeping,and I kept tossing and turning just plain restless. My husband wasn't having trouble at all,(of course), so I just laid there and looked at the ceiling and started meditating a little and tried too relax myself.

I had just about managed too fall asleep,when I heard,as clear as a bell, "HEEEELLLOOO" really drawn out and kind of creepy sounding! With that I froze to the spot,and couldn't move at all! The kind of thing that happens when you have a bad dream...Then I felt as though a spider web had crossed my face! Immediately I asked for Archangel Michael too clear away any negativity that was near me,and he told me that it was just a House Elf,and that he was now rolling around with laughter at me ..I wasn't at all amused,but was thankful for the encounter, but asked not too scare me next time! This is typical,and they like to scare kids during the night,but they think its funny,and I don't believe they are evil-or Archangel Michael would have chased him away.

The second encounter,was an actual sighting! 

My husband and I often sleep in the lounge room,when its very hot,since its the only room with air conditioning at the moment. So again, it had been a long day,and I was last to go off to sleep. Just before I fell asleep, I heard a noise right next to me. It was kind of like someone had put a cup on the table-I had a little table next to me,so I just thought the dog had slightly knocked this-but when I turned over,I realized the dog was asleep,right next to my husband-and couldn't have made that noise. 

So as I looked around the room, I saw a human-like being crouched next to me-I could see its outline from the doorway-at first I thought it was my son,so I said "what are you doing?" but there was no answer. Then it reached out to me-but stopped halfway. I just kept on looking at it-but it was funny,I wasn't afraid-just curious.

I stared at him,and he stared at me, for about 5 minutes-and then in a flash,the curtain in the doorway flicked across, and he was gone. I could not believe my eyes. He was about 4 feet tall-although he was crouched down sitting on his heels, I knew it could not of been my son, because he is almost 5'11" Also there was no noise when he left,and we have floor boards,you can hear everything! He just vanished!

Of course,I asked my husband in the morning if he had seen anything & told him my story,and he just said,"They are laughing at you again,are they!"

So yes, I've actually seen a House Elf-& I hope next time that he talks to me!

Common Names For Fairy's/ Elves:

Elf's, Light Elf's (Ljsalfar), Darkness Elf's ( Dopkalfar) Gloom Elf's, Goblins,Hobgoblins,Bedroom Goblins,Trolls,Bogeys,Pixies,Dwarf's,Brownies,Imp,Sprite,Orc,Bogart,leprechaun,Pooka,Devas
To name a few...

How to Connect:

Unless you have actually demanded that no Fairy's are too live in or around your house,then you would most certainly have quite a few living with you.

Too connect with Fairy's its always best to have an open mind,and belief in their existence if you will never actually see one with your own eyes. This is the problem with learning and growing Spiritually. We 'think' that in order to connect,with Angels,Guides or Fairy's, that this would mean one would materialize in front of your eyes and harps would play and suddenly you are in a fairytale land! No this is not going to happen! Its a very fine subtle energy, its just the willingness to want a connection,that makes it happen.

As you sit outside or take a walk, you will feel slight breezes, be filled with ideas, focus on dreams,think about your physical health,and perhaps look at something and have a memory of a childhood experience. THIS thought process & feeling,is from the Fairy's that surround you. So obviously you will now realize,that you have had countless interactions with Fairy's.

But once you make the connection,you will start to think on it more. You may go outside and close your eyes and actually ask for inspiration,and then it will come. It's such a simple process,yet we strain so hard to work it all out. All we really need to do is believe.....

A Message To Everyone From "PIP" The Fairy:

" Hello & Welcome My dear friends and followers,"
an important message from the host of this story

The way of the world is changing very fast .I can remember when it was normal for humans to interact with us Fairy Folk, but now,it seems that this is happening less often. Children & animals can sense us very strongly, & the more belief that humans put in us,the more belief we place in humans. We do not tend to show ourselves directly,but rather prefer to use inspiration as a way of showing ourselves to you. You can hear us if you care to listen,although your doubts of this ever occurring will stop you. We exist in your imagination,and when you stop screening this, you will see and feel us in your minds eye.

All we ask from you too please,be mindful of how you treat the Earth. So much damage has been done, but we can save it bit by bit,if you all help by being mindful of your own environment & soon this will carry over to your workplace or anywhere you happen to be.

If you see litter on the ground-why do you walk by? Every little bit helps,much more than you may think. So please just be mindful of the little things,and we will help you too manifest changes in your life, that some may call wishes to come true, but too us,they are just changes,as a thank you for helping us. We are all around you even if you don't see us,we just work for the good of all,and will inspire that in you,if you let us do this.. 

We can feel your thoughts and can clear your Aura's -this is why you may feel better after getting some fresh air! All you ever need too do is ask for help and we will inspire you with the answers, we are never far, all you need to do is open your heart and mind!!"

I have to say, it is extremely hard for me to relay this message to you from PIP. Much harder for some reason than Angels-maybe I'm not used to it yet! I don't believe that there are Evil Fairy's or Goblins etc. But I believe that people can make things be however they like,and there is certain kinds of magic,that involves the conjuring of creatures & this is something I prefer not too dwell in or think about.

But this is your choice. The main rule is that whatever your intention in the world, it will return to you good,or bad, 3 fold. Maybe this is something we all need too remember! 

If you would like to leave a gift for the fairy's, just take a small basket and place in it some small crystal pieces...they love this!

Many Blessings!

Fairy History

Fairy History

Early Fairy History shows that the belief in the existence of fairies was first known and is based on the fae of medieval Western European folklore. The early stories about these Fairies have become know as Fairy Tales. Historically, these Fairytales often identify a variety of other beings from other mythologies.

Here are references to some of these other mythical creatures:

Our Fairy History research, shows some of the theories that speculate on the origins of these fantastic little creatures:

1. They are souls that were never baptized.

2. They are souls caught between heaven and Hell. They have not been good enough to get into heaven, but they have not committed a bad enough sin to deserve Hell. They are in limbo.

3. These are fallen angels. It is believed that Angels that were loyal to Lucifer were also thrown out of heaven with him. God stopped them from being cast into Hell in mid-flight. He made them remain exactly where they were at the time. That is why some of these enchanted beings can fly in the air, many make living in the earth their home and others live in rivers, ponds, lakes and the ocean. Irish Folklore and folklore from Scotland, Scandinavia and others all have very similar accounts.

4. They are nature spirits. Somewhat analogous to the fallen-angel theory, this theory holds that they are among the many spirits that populate all things and places in the earth.

5. They are diminutive human beings. There is evidence that small-structured races populated parts of Europe and the British Isles in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, before the spread of the Celts. In Ireland, they were known as the Thuathe de Danaan. 

They resided in barrows and in shelters burrowed under hills and mounds. They were hard working but shy, and, as stronger peoples invaded their land and captured their iron weaponry, they retreated to the woodlands to live a secretive life. Being pagan, they continued to worship the pagan deities. They were in union with nature and possessed keen psychic senses. Their skills and trades allowed them to lead somewhat normal lives while raising diminutive cattle and horses.

The Legend of the Golden Dragon

The Legend of the Golden Dragon 
~ Fairy Tail ~ 

How long were you there? Kneeling in the center of the room like a tower with no doors and no windows? Facing the walls golden as the dress I wore, and hearing the sound of water dripping in a small pond behind me. My last visitor, if I could call it alive, it would be the only one I met and spoke to in a while, I believe this man called himself ``Merlyn``, If it was Merlin the magician it was a younger version of him. He would appear sometimes in the room by a portal, asking if I was okay and sharing briefly with me some things, before disappearing again.

I didn't understand all the story he was sharing with me. I knew only those men were going to take me away when Aurum*, who was a dragon, and my only family, disappeared mysteriously. I still don't comprehend why they imprisoned me in this damned sanctuary, saying that I was ``The Golden Dragon``. How could that be possible? Aurum WAS the Golden Dragon, not me.

I let out a tired sigh before standing from my kneeling position, making myr way toward a crystal ball on a white pedestal. It was my only connection to the world below. That's right, I was in a sanctuary which was situated in the clouds, its location is a mystery and legend to the humans, even for other dragons. Looking through the crystal ball, my eyes widened when I saw a city on fire. What's going on? It wasn't just any city, it was Caelum*, just next to my sanctuary. An hissing sound came from behind me and a cloaked old man rushed to me in a panic state.

- " Aurum! You must run away! Please, go down below and hide! He is here! "

- " W-who? And why d-do you call me Aurum? My name is (Yana)! " I told the man with a scowl on his face.

- " There's no time for bickering! You must- "

There was an explosion and I was protected by a mystical shield of blue light, while Merlyn was crushed in the wall next to me. I gasped, approaching quickly the poor old man to see if he was still alive. Fortunately, he was.

- " Well, well...what do we have here? So this is the ``Golden Dragon``? I must say I'm not disappointed..." said another voice and I turned around to see a tall man engulfed with a cloak made of darkness.

You shuddered at his attire, finding his red eyes and black hair quite scary. He started to walk towards me, a smug face on his features while I held a cold one. I wasn't scared of him I can cast a spell. Before I could throw him a spell, he trapped you with chains that appeared from nowhere, then I was lifted high in the air. And then, all I saw was darkness.

I woke up, a terrible headache present. Groaning, you sat up to realize I was in some kind of forest. Looking at my surroundings, I saw a small lake and I walked to it. Seeing my reflection in the water, I screamed at the sight. My wasn't my body! Firstly, my body was SMALLER, the height of a child compared to human standards if I could say. Secondly, I was wearing a purple cloak with designs of eyes, stopping at my tights. Thirdly, my eyes weren't like before, they were red and I couldn't see the rest of my face, only the glowing eyes and the shape of my head in the darkness, like a cloak was shading it (A/N), it looks like that, I don't understand...). Plus, my skin was gray...GRAY!

I woke up shaking violently, I heard the sound of something jingling and I looked above me to see a golden hourglass tied at the tip of the cloak. Raising a brow, I tilted my head to the side with confusion. Where were you? What's going on? Who was that man? You knew his face, but not his name. You couldn't remember it.

- " N-Natsu?! What is that thing?! " yelled a girl, as I turned to see a blond girl and pink haired boy.

Maybe they could help me? I started to walk to them but you stopped when you saw a small cat jumping down from the boy's shoulder.

- " Hey, what's your name? " it asked.

- " Kupoy, Kupoy! ( (my name is (Y/N) ) " My eyes widened before I slapped a hand over my mouth.

"What's going on?! My voice?! Why do I speak like that?! They will never understand me! " I thought in panic.

- " Hum...what did you say? " asked the boy with a dumbfounded expression and the girl interjected.

- " Don't you see, Natsu? It can't speak our language...I don't even think this thing have a mind...." she said and I felt the anger raise inside you.

- " KUPOY!!!!!? KUPOY! KUPOY KUPOY! (Wha?! Say it again! I dare you Blondie!) " I yelled angrily at her, your eyes glowing redder than before.

- " S-SORRY! YOU HAVE A MIND, YOU HAVE A MIND! " she squeaked from hiding behind the boy, before she started to run back in the direction they had come from then stopped a short distance away looking back apprehensively, then turned and said, "my name is Fiutsi".

- " Do you understand her, Happy? " Natsu asked the blue cat.

- " Not really, but maybe Makarov can? Hm? Look Natsu! It has a golden hourglass on the tip of its cloak... " said the blue cat, pointing at it.

- " Weird, the sand is black...and it is falling down in a slow pace..." said Natsu, I am intrigued by the hourglass and certainly by you. " Anyway...we should name you! "

The boy smiled goofily, before his features turned to a thoughtful face. For a moment, I worried some about the names he would come out with.

- " How about Tiki? " he asked, and I could not frown but I mad the expression known with my eyes.

- " Natsu, you don't know if this is a boy or a girl... " sweat beading on Fiutsi's forehead after returning from her run.

- " Oh yeah, that's right...Than how about Smally? "

- " ...Kupoy... (shut up) " I said darkly, making the three of them flinch.

- " I think it doesn't like that n-name " the girl stuttered nervously. " How about Arcana*? Do you like this name? " she asked.

I didn't respond anything, and thought . Might be a long time before they guess my name so I decided to accept Fiutsi's choice and I jumped up and down excitably. They smiled and then  Natsu took your arm and pulled gently on it.

- " Kupoy?! (What are you doing?!) " I said.

- " You are coming with us! Maybe someone in the guild can help you "

Smiling at the thought, I smiled and let them bring me to their ``guild``.

- " She is here? " said an unknown male voice.

- " Yes master...the curse isn't complete...She is now an entity, her powers sealed away... " replied a male voice.

- " Humpf...It's good in a way, make sure that she is destroyed, The Master growled "  then snickered evily.

- " Yes...master...

The golden dragon hobbling side to side, wings half unfolded, 

followed closely
beihind Natsu and Fiutsi whith Happy the blue cat on her shoulder as they vanished into the deep forest 

Our true potentials are locked away in the dark recesses of our memory

Agathar Part 14

Agathar Part 14Jansen froze to the spot, feeling tingling going up and down her entire body as she tried to grasp the overwhelming immensity and implications of exactly what she had observed below. One star shone very brightly at the center of the pulsating threads, Jansen had noticed. If focused too long on it she felt drawn. So strong was the yearning she thought she would be absorbed into its light. She rubbed her eyes and shook her head and finally came out of the trance. For just a second she remembered the impulse she had had to jump down the tunnel, which now had returned to the swirling fog, like the inside of a tornado.

Jeji came to her side and guided her to a seat closer to the central platform and helped her to sit, then sat next to her with her hand on Jansen’s back. Jansen was speechless for the moment and could only bite on her right index finger, looking perplexedly at Jeji. Antana walked towards them followed shortly after by Dalina.

Antana approached and sat next to Jansen on the other side of the bench and said to her, "Everything will be as it is meant to be, and in time you will learn from Banitra, the Bright One. The Bright One speaks through Universe. You will feel the voice speaking and you will know what needs to be done." 

Jansen looked blankly at Antana, lost for words. She raised her arms and started to say something but just let them drop to her side again. What she wished to say would not form in her mind long enough to express into words. She needed some time to let all that she had experienced on this day digest into some coherence in her mind.

But one point got through, and that was that it sounded very much like the people of this world looked to the central star, from what she could gather, as a central consciousness of the universal web. In other words, for lack of a better description, and to keep it brief, the central star was revered by the Agatharians as the equivalent of the Goddess of the Universe. Jansen wondered if this universe was the same one she had left or was it another one in another reality in the realm of quantum potentialities.

Finally Jansen cleared her throat and spoke, pointing towards the tunnel. "That was the great Goddess of Universe!” she squeaked, and cleared her throat once more, and repeated what she had said.

Both Antana and Dalina shook their heads vigorously in agreement and smiled and spoke simultaneously the word "Banitra!"

As they began to walk back to the stairs leading up to the platform they stopped and looked back once more at the swirling, churning cloud-like formation that completely swallowed up the walls of the tunnel. No sound came from the tempest in the tunnel, but one knew of its presence just by feeling the strong vibrating energy, like one would from a nearby tornado. Even from the distance they stood away from it, its ferocity could be felt.

Jansen shivered while entranced by the overwhelming beauty of universe and the enchantment of Banitra. For a second she was so drawn to it that she had felt an overpowering urge to dive in, like taking a swan dive off a diving board into a swimming pool.

Going back up the shaky and bumpy wooden frame elevator, Jansen held onto the railing tightly. Once topside again, the wooden gate opened and Jansen stepped out into the sunlight and sat on the first seat that became available to her. She needed to be in touch with reality again, even if just for a little while, for she knew that what she had seen thus far were only short previews of the main attractions to come.

The next morning after breakfast she and Jeji and a good many of the dragonfly-winged children were present, all sitting around the large long wooden dining room table which also served as a conference table.

Antana stood upon her chair. The room was silent. Crossing her arms she bowed slightly with her eyes closed, then straightened again and spoke: "The time that we have feared has come, my friends. Soon it will be time to use the plans that have been practiced for so long. We hoped that this time would never come. The outside beings are moving in the direction the quantum gate.”

Jansen raised her hand and asked, "Wait a minute! Are we talking about worm holes or star gates? Worm holes are a natural phenomenon, but most times I have heard about star gates they turned out to be artificial, constructed, not created."

Antana responded, "Yes they are a natural phenomenon but they can be manipulated by intelligent beings. Many eons ago the beings that were the care takers of this world had set it up in such a way that they had not thought they would be discovered by future beings"

Jansen sat down slowly, and said, “We have some big problems coming our way if they discover this world. The gate will be mapped into their star charts for future beings to find." Scratching her chin she stopped and said, "The tornado in the in the tunnel in the root system below us is somehow connected to the outside layers as well as the inner layers or dimensions of space and time."

"Yes," Antana said, then raised her hands and a mist materialized on the table before them. It began to swirl faster and faster until it formed into the shape of a miniature tornado, a replica of the one they had observed below in the root system tunnel.

When the tornado-shaped mist spread outwards and vanished into the air, the tornado had been replaced by a dark sphere. Then Jansen noticed that the darkness in the sphere was perforated with tiny points of light. “The pinpoints of light are stars,” she thought. To the far right she recognized Banitra. If so, this would mean that we were looking at a different place in the universe but still within the galactic area.

“Look closely,” Antana said as the scene in the large sphere zoomed in closer to a certain star and stopped. "There," she pointed, to the left of a dark nebula. Then Jansen saw them. Many tiny dots moving against the bright background of clustered stars.

Antana continued: “Judging by our astral coordinates they are coming straight for the gate. They will arrive in about 22 days or planet spins.” Having finished, she stepped down and said, “I wish to see everyone here tonight present at sunrise, in this room.” She clapped her hands and the image of the dark sphere vanished.


Agathar part 15

Jeji, who had been absent from the meeting, had just returned from a little visit with her people of the purple forest. As soon as Jansen was available she came up and stood at attention before her then made a salute and continued to stand at attention. She appeared to be a little anxious, Jansen thought, then nodded and said, “You don't have to do that.” "You are the captain and I am in your service," Jeji responded

“Jeji,” Jansen said to her, "You are my equal here on this world. As for captain, captain of what? Captain of a single-occupant space ship, or should I say captain of a time and space streamer? I'm just a rocket jockey as they would say at the academy back home. Although the QLPJ is large enough to contain an entire platoon if need be.”

"OK," Jeji said, then bowed slightly, in her people’s way of showing respect. "Captain, I just got news that your ship will be here in two days, 4 days ahead of schedule. Neelix also said to inform you he was lucky to find the replacement parts that were needed to do the complete repairs. He also said to tell you he even made a few improvements in the working systems of your ship.”

"The working systems?" Jansen asked a little apprehensively. What did he do to the ‘working systems?’" she said, a bit irritably.

"I don't know captain, he didn't specify." Jeji said, shrugging her shoulders.

"OK, I just hope he didn't mess with any part of the centrifugal system of the ship" Jansen responded and went on. “OK, that leaves us with about three days after my ship’s arrival before our invading friends arrive."

"How will you manage against all those ships they have with one single ship?" Jeji asked. Jansen heard a rustling over to her left and was instantly standing in battle position addressing a threat she judged to be in that direction. “Those lessons I learned at the Academy may come in useful before this is over,” she thought.

Antana came out from the bushes and flew to them in the open area of the village street at the base of the giant trees. Jansen stood up and relaxed and said with a slight bow, “Welcome, Antana. Please join us. As I was about to say, I am sincerely hoping that Neelix didn't ‘un-repair’ more things then he repaired.” “I know of no other ship made by humans or beings from any other worlds I know of that can do the maneuvers the QLPJ is capable of doing. Without weapons or any physical force, it has the capability to just disrupt the energy system in another's vehicle or compound, without harm to any living thing inside."

Jeji stood, her mouth agape, not fully understanding what Jansen had just told them about the QLPJ. She had a hard enough time just trying to understand why intelligent beings would like to travel all over the heavens in metal boxes.

Jansen just smiled and said, “Jeji, you know the gate, the tornado in the gate?” Jeji shook her head and said "Yes."

“Well the QLPJ takes its energy from the elements around it and concentrates it into a box about the size of one of the chairs in the dining room. Now imagine the tornado in the gate squeezed down to fit in that box.”

Jeji shook her head again and said, smiling, "Yes, I understand what you say, just hard to conceive in my mind how one can squeeze something that big and powerful into such a small box. But then, that's what powers the ship and also can throw back the outside part of the tornado.”

Jansen then turned to Antana who hovered close by to her left. Antana stood straight and saluted and said smiling, "Aye, Captain!"

"Oh, get out of here, you two, and that ‘captain stuff,’" Jansen said as she laughed, waving her right hand as though brushing a pesky insect away. "OK, I just wanted to make sure no one got sucked up my energy intakes when I get my ship back!" Then Jansen laughed again, followed by Jeji and Antana.

A tense moment evaporated away among what had become a strong friendship of three very different beings. Jansen had noticed the harmony these beings had with one another and with their world. “There certainly could be a lesson to be well learned from this world on ours,” she thought.

The QLPJ arrived on time. Neelix landed it in the same area where Jansen had crashed, in the sandy area not far from largest ocean that the natives of Agathar called “Nathine.”

Jansen considered the flight characteristics of Agathar. It was a fairly large planet about 1-1/2 the size of Earth yet its gravitational field was less than Earth’s, about 2/3 to be precise. This weaker gravitational pull this allowed for some larger avian species, not just Teddy and her kind, but other rather large species flew in the air of this world.

Neelix walked up to Jansen, saluted, and said, "All yours, Captain." “Thank you, Mr. Neelix,” Jansen said, bowing slightly, then asked, “Would you kindly show me where you did all the repairs and improvements?” She emphasized “improvements.”

After a tour of inspection of the QLPJ Neelix stopped. Holding his chin with his right index finger and thumb he said, "I know how this ship runs but where does it draw its energy from?"

Jansen was relieved. She knew by his question that he had not tampered with that part of the QLPJ.

Jansen responded, "You need not know that, Mr. Neelix."

"Oh, OK,” Neelix said, raising his hand and letting it drop to his side. “I see. Top Secret. I should have known it was an experimental product from Starfleet command…” He babbled on filling in his own blanks, then trailed off and said, “…OK, Captain, want to take it out for a spin?"

Agathar part 16

Jansen sat back into the foam-like seat and belted herself in, then pressed a button. There was a low hum below like that of over-head, high-voltage electrical lines. The humming soon increased in pitch to a high-pitched whine then vanished. The only indicator that the QLPJ was running was the slight vibrations that she could feel under the palms of her hands which rested on the arms of her seat. "OK, Mr. Neelix, I am relieved that the centrifugal core is still intact and in good working order," Jansen said turning to Neelix with a smile.

She pressed three more buttons in succession and flipped a switch in an overhead control panel, pressed another button and a panel opened revealing a helmet that looked just the same as a regular motorcycle helmet with wires attached to it. She placed the helmet over her head and gave a thought command. The wall facing here lit up like midday followed by wavering and shimmering splotches of color which soon focused themselves to reveal the landscape that lay just outside the QLPJ. There were leaves and other debris flying around in a small cloud about the outer perimeter of the QLPJ, not disturbed or blown by outside combustion but rather from opposing gravitational fields. Turning again to Neelix she asked, "Ready?" Neelix nodded yes.

Jansen gave another thought command and they left the ground like a bullet exiting a gun. The light turned to darkness as the sky turned black. Jansen pulled a lever to the right and directed the QLPJ towards Agathar's sun then gave another thought command. The next was something like a flash of very bright white light then all fell dark again. Neelix turned to her and said, “That was one of the modifications.”

"Where are we?" Jansen asked.

"Look behind you," Neelix replied, nodding his head and urging her to look back.

The sun was behind them and very much diminished from before they left.

“We went through the sun?” Jansen asked?

"Not directly. It is more like for those few seconds it took for us to get to this point from Agathar, we weren't existing in this time and space plane.”

"Another dimension?" Jansen queried.

"One could say that" Neelix answered. 

Jansen, with Neelix’s help, recalibrated the settings on the turbo accelerators to the centrifugal core. At a rate of a little under one light speed they journeyed back home at normal space time.

Jansen had designed the QLPJ to travel between folds in space and time, “dimension hopping.” She scratched her head and pondered how a person who appeared as simple as Mr. Neelix, one who reminded her very much of a used car salesman, could have such a working understanding of something as complex as the QLPJ.

He had shown her his modifications where he had devised a simple change in the relay system to the conductor cores which actually reversed the gravitational fields and as a result actually altered time. The effect would be much like dematerializing in one place in space and reappearing in another place millions of light years apart in the span of an eye blinking. Result: ship and passengers transforming into energy.

Jansen landed back on the same spot she had left, in a clearing at the base of some large trees where it could not easily be seen from a distance above. She didn't have to worry about the ship being detected by radar as it was made of a composite that was somewhere between Kevlar and metal, heavy yet weightless when the antigravity centrifugal engines were running full speed.

Antana waited anxiously at ground level as Jansen and Neelix were lowered to the ground by a lift mechanism in the lower part of the ship. Antana flew up to Jansen excitedly, nearly colliding with her, and said, “They will be here within the day.”

"My friend, I think we may have a little surprise for them when they arrive at the point where the Agatharian time space portal converges with universal time space," Jansen announced.

Jansen, Neelix, Antana, Jeji and Dalena rode the rickety wooden frame elevator up top by way of the tree’s hollow center on their way to the meeting chamber. Jandy, a psychic fellow, awaited them at the doorway to the meeting hall. He bowed slightly then straightened and smiled, saying to Antana, “All is prepared, my lady.”

When Jansen looked into his eyes she was froze to the spot where she stood. He was the most beautiful...elf, she supposed he would be called. He had no wings like the other children but his stunning handsomeness had nearly swept her off her feet. He waved for us to enter. As she walked by she noticed he was taller than the children, closer to five feet tall she reckoned. 

Antana noticed her particular attention upon Jandy and spoke. "He's my cousin from Zanoolee, on the west side of this continent,” she explained.

“Well, my friend Antana, I do pray that we will get an opportunity to meet again after this is meeting is over. And of course all of your people whom I have come to grow quite fond of, even the Cadosee in their cloud-scraping homes. I have come to feel like your people are just as much my people as the folks back home.”

There was only the six of them sitting at the meeting table that evening. Everyone else in the tree compound had been dismissed for the day.

Antana sat at the head of the table and Jansen and Jeji sat on the right side while Dalina and Jandy sat on the left and Neelix sat at the opposite end of the table from Antana. After several cups of what passed as coffee on Agathar were consumed the meeting finally adjourned and all began to stir to in readiness to leave when Antana addressed them once more. All heads turned back toward her.

“Everyone meet back here at the break of day to rehearse the duties that we will be performing aboard Captain Jansen's magnificent ship. Bring all you will need with you, for we will be departing from here directly.” Everyone stood up and bowed slightly in respect then after Antana left the room the group broke up and each went their own way.

Agathar 17

At daybreak they all met in the dining hall to review the roles they would be playing on this..."Just a venture," Jansen said, crossing the fingers of her right hand, "like a drill," she repeated, attempting to convince herself more than anyone else. "Everyone knows their stations and their duties," Jansen said, then got up and walked for the entrance way.

She thought, " l now have a crew of 4." She heard a voice behind her. "Nope! You now have five!" Jensen suddenly stopped and looked back to see Antana hovering just a short distance behind her. Jansen stood a little confused and said. "I thought, I mean... well, does not Agathar need its leader... or what would pass to us as the leader of its people to be at their side. So I had never expected you to join us to begin with. That was a mutual understanding. "

"As your people would say, someone is filling in for me. We are not locked into one position if another is required to accomplish certain tasks. It was decided, actually unanimously decided that as leader I am also the defender of my world and if my wish is to go out and fight for its freedom, then it is my choice to make, and my choice was honored by all." Antana informed Jansen. Her only weapon, a hollow reed, she proudly held before her.

"What manner of weapon is that?" Jansen asked pointing.

Antana raised her left hand and pointed at the reed and simply said, "Sleeper," then smiled.

OK then, Antana, your position will be the gunner at the back of the QLPJ. Don't worry, there's not really a gun there, it's just an observatory. Please scan the skies around us for intruders.”

Seated belted and ready to go, Jansen pushed a few buttons in an apparently random fashion and flipped some switches on the overhead console and a low whining sound issued from within the QLPJ, vibrating the entire hull. The low whining soon crested at an ear- splitting sound followed by a silence. Then there was like a loud ping sound and Jansen felt herself being pressed to her seat suddenly. This was followed just as suddenly by weightlessness.

Jansen looked back through the cockpit glass at Agathar quickly dwindling to the size of a dot, then to nothing. In what seemed like only a few seconds Jansen regained consciousness and sat bolt upright, her head turning in all directions around her. A thought went through her mind: “This certainly isn't Kansas any more, Toto.”

She looked through the monitoring array on the console before her and saw no ships in sight and hoped it would remain so. If they weren't deliberately navigating for the wormhole there was a good possibility they would miss it. Then Antana's excited voice broke through on the intercom.

“Ships, Captain, ten degrees off starboard quarter!” Jansens fingers flew over the keyboard to change the coordinates on the monitoring array to pinpoint the area Antana had given her.

And there they were, still dots on the monitor but moving very fast. Unfortunately this meant that the area of the wormhole had been calculated and charted which meant that if the chart leaked out to any other source Agathar would never again know peace.

Jansen looked over to Neelix. She had chosen Neelix as second in command because of his experience at flying many different types of ships as part of his job as recycler of abandoned spacecraft. She needed someone to fly with her and he was the closest one available to fill the bill as first officer of the QLPJ.

Neelix nodded and Jansen clicked a few buttons in succession then flipped only one switch on the overhead console. The QLPJ shot forward in sharp, short vibrations as Jansen looked outside, her finger paused on the second switch. She could see blue rings all around the hull pulsating concurrently into spiraling rings which faded into the blackness of space behind her.

The next switch had been modified to work on automatic. A subatomic second surge through space brought them alongside the lead ship of the formation that Antana had spotted. That had the affect she had hoped it would: A ship appearing right alongside of them out of nowhere, close enough they could have shaken hands through the port holes! That brought a cacophony of all of their excited voices trying to all talk at the same time on the QLPJ's intercom system.

"Who are you, ship that appeared from nowhere?" crackled the ship-to-ship communicator.

“OK, that confirms one thing, they're not from Earth as this person's voice was being translated by the ships translation computer,” Jansen concluded. But still, she had ill feelings about those ominous black ships. There was no light emanating from them. Even if there were port holes the light from inside of them didn't penetrate through the cloak of darkness. Their invisibility shield was working, alright, but they could not avoid detection by way of the doorway, a special doorway (the wormhole) which now was in jeopardy of discovery. And on the other end of the doorway was the dragonfly-wing children in the interconnected tree root system.

Jansen considered the possibilities. “This entire planet could be taken over to be used as a transportation point between stars and possibly bringing with it even more warriors of evil beings, even more so than what we have at the present time. That would mean the death of these beautiful beings who live here, who live at peace, innocence and in harmony in themselves and all of nature and the planet. Their way of life would cease to exist which would mean their will to live would cease as well.”

"You have entered a restricted area. Please turn around and go back where you came from immediately!" Jansen spoke loudly and firmly into the communicator.

The reply was immediate, sarcastic laughter.

Jansen made the brace yourselves sign with her right hand just seconds before there was a bone rattling crash on the hull next to where Jandi's head was. He released himself from his seat belt and floated down the aisle towards the back, laid down in the medic cot and belted himself in.

Jansen hit the switch and they were gone, only to reappear again leaving a trail of blue energy rings to vibrate towards the dark ship. The entire dark ship lit up in a blue halo then the halo faded and the ship just sat there silent.

Jansen again hit the switch and "Ping!" they were gone then "Ping!" they were back starboard of the next ship. Jansen didn't wait. She just pressed the switch and again blue rings of energy vibrated towards the ship, then lit it up in a blue halo just like the first one that was hit.

Soon they had all twelve ships disabled and Jansen went back to the first ship and asked." I believe you are the lead ship? and what is your name and title?"

"Yes, yes." was the response.

"OK ,yes, yes, I believe you are going to need a tow job. I have the man to do the job for a price. Or would you wish to just be left here?” “Maybe the Glogelians will be of better assistance,” Jansen teased. She then related the legend of the fat worm that flies through space and thrives on eating stranded space ships. She had to bite her tongue to hold back a chuckle as she talked. “Well after this trip if she ever makes it back home she will be able to tale tales of other creatures that would make the Glogelian look like a lady bug in comparison,” she thought.

They were on their way home and Neelix had a job on his hands to keep him busy for a while. Jansen had the coordinates for the gate back. She had wiped their computer of any trace of it and downloaded it into her own computer where she hoped it would remain safe.

Back home Antana asked Jansen if she would like to stay a little longer. “You may leave now, if you wish, now that Agathar is in no immediate danger,” she told her.

"Me? Would I want to stay a little longer? But of course I will, my gracious lady, as long as you wish me to. I don't seem to have any special missions ahead that I am aware of.”

The break of dawn the next day found Jeji and Jansen running to see who would get to Teddy first. The first one there got to steer and Jansen wanted that job.

Feeling the beat of Teddy's wings and the surge forward at each beat, the wind on her face, and Teddy's heart beating synchronously with her own, Jansen closed her eyes and spread her arms to either side, and for a few moment she was Teddy and Teddy was her. They were one entity. She could feel the air lifting her wings as they glided over the purple Agatharian mountains.

As for Jandi, he was recovering from his concussion really well and Janson was making sure of that.
