How to Attract Fairies

If you want to communicate and work with fairies, you’ll either have go out and find them in nature or attract them into your world.  If attracting fairies is your goal, there are lots of things you can do to create a fairy friendly environment.

I Believe In Fairies

Most fairies/elves experience humans as non believers so a great way to attract them is to show them that you believe in them. If you place the faery flag (see below) on a shelf or wall, it lets fairies know you are a friend and invites them to visit.  When they see the flag, they will be very curious and come closer to investigate.  (More about the Faery Flag in another post)

Respect and Care for the Earth

Fairies are very concerned about the way humans have mistreated the earth that we both share.  One of their main purposes in communicating with us is to teach us to empower ourselves so that we can help heal the planet.  Often, healing and respecting the planet is one of their very first messages so being environmentally friendly and doing your part to help heal the earth is a must.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Just like humans, fairies are more attracted to lightness and happiness rather than sadness and depression. In fact, much that has been written about fairies has to do with them playing music, dancing, singing and basically partying all night.  When you are trying to attract them, try playing beautiful music, dance a little and feel happy!

Give them Some Space

Fairies enjoy the idea of hospitality and prefer to go places they are invited and welcomed.  One way to make them feel really welcome is to set aside a special place just for them such as a corner or a shelf, and put things you think they would like in this area. Placing a fairy house on a shelf would be an excellent way to do this and encourages them to visit and stay a while (see our post about fairy houses here).  You can place all sorts of offerings and fairy gifts on your fairy shelf such as fairy shoes, a thimble of honey, maybe a bit of good Irish ale(!), a fairy cake, a fairy drum, some shiny objects (they love shiny things!) or something copper (one of their favorite metals). No fairy could resist such an offering!  NOTE: Just make sure there is no iron any where near this area–iron saps their strength and repels them.

One thing they have made very clear to my sister and I, is that they need to be treated with respect and they need to be valued. Any sign of disrespect or condescension, and they will be gone. If you talk to them and interact with them as if they were a treasured friend then all will go well.

The Good People Only, Please

One last thing to consider when inviting the fae to visit is to make sure you only invite the friendly fairy, not the dark, scary, difficult fairies.  It’s best to make a declaration out loud such as, “those with bad intent are not welcome here.”  Another good idea, according to the Elves of Fyn, is to place this symbol above the doors or windows of your home:

The Faery Protection Rune-- this rune should keep all the harmful fairies away.

  2. Amaya August 1, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    hi i am a great beliver in faeries and i think i may of had a few encounters i am not sure becuase didnt actually see the faerie i just saw the light…but i am not sure though…. heres 2 of them …. once when i was coming back from a partii in the dark with mi family i saw i little red dot of light in a little bunch of flowers in our garden and there was no one shining a light or any thing so i not sure about that one……….and another time….. when i got out of the car everyone was walking into the house was was middle of the day…i saw a white light behind an old broken basketball net we had in our garden i looked away but then i looked again and it was gone and it was not the sun because it was a kinda grey rainy day … you think you could maybe say whether these where encounters or no anyway thanks for reading ….bye …..from amaya…p.s.your info is really helpful..

    • Natalie Lynn August 4, 2009 at 11:07 am

      Hi Amaya,

      Anything strange like that with no logical explanation sounds paranormal to me. Now, was is a fairy? That is hard to say from those two unrelated incidents but fairies are often seen as glowing lights. I would pay close attention to your environment right now in case they are trying to connect with you. If they are, you should see more things like this.

      Good luck!

  3. Gabby August 7, 2009 at 5:54 pm

    Oh my gosh thank you so much for this information! Me and my best friend believe in them but nobody else we know do. I really love faries there so beautiful. I really want to be friends with them I love them so much. Once again thank you so much for helping me!

    Greetings, I found your site to be most helpful and informative. I recently began looking into fairy sightings after a friend who lives in the Carolina mountains told us of a recent experience/sighting she had in the mountains of North Carolina, seems that there have been numerouns reports of sightings in an area called Grandpa Mt.? I am not entirely sure of all the details, but it intrigued me, I have always been a firm believer in the supernatural and have devoted time to the study of Demons/Angels and the like. Keep up the good work. Thanks…Kevin

  7. Sadie August 8, 2009 at 9:12 pm

    I am new here. I just wanted to make sure that there are faeries in Northern California. I was also wondering . . .
    1) I think this question has been asked, but I was confused with the answer: How do you know if it’s not yourself answereing your questions in your mind than if it was a true faery. If your making up the name or something.
    2)Are there only faeries in green areras?

  8. Sadie August 8, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    Sorry for more questions, but how intact do fairies expect their human-made houses to be? I was also if a faery would be named Crilen ( if they would be named that, I might have spoken to one) and how do their mind messages appear? In pictures, writing, sound?
    Thanks for putting up this sight, it helps.

    • Natalie Lynn August 13, 2009 at 5:14 pm

      Hi Sadie,

      You asked how intact a fairy house should be – I think it should be intact enough to provide some shelter and privacy.

      Their messages can appear differently to each individual person so it is hard to say how it would appear to you. However, everything you have mentioned–pictures, writing, and sound–are methods they use.

      Glad you find the site useful, thanks!


  9. Sadie August 8, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    Hi, I’m new here. I found your site interesting and very helpful. I had a few questions . . .
    1)Do faeries like to swim
    2)What do faeries like to eat? What is something we could leave them and they would trust us enough to eat it.
    3)t I think this question was asked, but I didn’t quite understand the answer: How do you know if you are not hearing yourself in your mind, rather than a real faery speaking to you? (Like you are asking your own questions).
    4) Would a faery be named Crilen?(if they would be named that, I might of spoken to one)
    5)Do fae prefer to have their human-made houses more in nature? Or would they be okay if it was a mixture.(That’s a confusing question, sorry)
    6) How would fae prove to you they are ethere if you ask them to?
    Sorry for the many questions. Thank you so much!

  10. Sadie August 8, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    Sorry I repeated some questions, I thought I didn’t submit them.

  11. Hunter August 8, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    I am new here. My sister is Sadie.
    I have my own questions . . .
    1)Do fae drink water?
    2)Do they like minerals?

  12. Bri3 August 12, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    natalie or anyone i am scared that a fairy will get mad or i will attract a bad fairy,someone tell me what to do!!! 🙁

  13. Bri3 August 12, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    sadie i am not anyone on this website but i do have the answer to one of your questions,you asked this:
    “how do you know that it isn’t you answering the questions than if it is a true fairy?”
    the answer is simple.the voice inside your head is very recognizable as it is the voice you speak.the voice you would hear would not be your voice but whichever fae is would not be your is very distinct and you would know that it is someone else.but keep this in mind as i say this:i have not had any contact with the fae yet but i am sure anyone who has would agree. hope this helps,bri3 😀

  14. Jodan August 13, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    i love you website 😀
    it has made my belief in faries even stronger. I am a 12 year old girl from Scotland and me and my sister are searching for fairies. We live in a small town and there is a small wood across are house and somtimes me and my sister go there and search for fairies. We never found one yet or heard one……….. but i do feel like we are being watched.
    Please help us coz it will be winter soon
    can you tell us a chant we could say to attract one.
    Love Jordan

    • Natalie Lynn August 13, 2009 at 3:34 pm

      Hi Jodan,

      Here is a well known fairy chant – it was even used in the movie “Fairy Tale a True Story”:

      Come out of your Fairy Bower.
      Come upon this golden hour.
      Come to me, I beg you please.
      Fairies dancing upon the breeze.

  19. Bri3 August 16, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    i’m going to try natalie’s chant and rico’s chant. 😛 🙂

  20. Sadie August 18, 2009 at 1:27 am

    Hi Natalie,
    Thanks for answering my questions. By the way . . .
    The other night my friend was over and we had been working on faery houses in my front yard. I put a small white stone on a patch that says LOVE in the faery house I made. The next morning I found the patch and stone on a little tree stump nearby- not in the house I am almost positive they were in the night before. No one said they had touched it. Would a faery have done this?
    Another question I had- I put out some food in my faery house. I put in teeny tiny pancakes, two small cherry tomatoes, some lettuce, Frito chip pieces, and some cut pieces of a grape. The food wasn’t touched for a week and everything went bad. Why?
    Thanks again,

    • Natalie Lynn August 18, 2009 at 11:17 am

      Hey Sadie,

      Yes, that is the sort of things that fairies would do…

      About the food, they don’t actually physically eat the food, they take its essence and that isn’t perceptible to us. I always give them a couple of days and then change the food before it goes bad 🙂


  21. Bri3 August 20, 2009 at 11:21 am

    hi guys its me i got two parakeets the other day (mine has already learned to perch on me)do you think a fairy would be offended by that or would they like it?

  22. katiethehorselover August 22, 2009 at 12:10 am

    hi! me again,
    um i just wanted to say thank’s natalie for that info on faries i just wanted to ask you something its kind of complicated for me to understand this but maybe you know about it. i was reading some stories about kids with other fairy encounters and 2 of them talked about this weird thing that happened, the first one talked about a girl who was sitting by a huge tree that she was sure was magic when suddenly she realized the playground got really quiet she looked to her side and saw there was a fairy next to her pointing to a book with her name on it and she found this really weird because she had an uncommon name i think. then in the other story a boy that believed in magical creatures woke up one night and saw a small person about 3ft tall that was pointing to something with his name on it. is there anything you know about that is similar to that? also on june 19 i wrote to you but i’m not sure if you answered that. also can you make a fairy house out of anything or do they have to be made from all natural nature things? well, i hope you can answer this bye! oh, i almost forgot to ask sometimes my cat=^..^= lucky chases his tail do you think theres a fairy on the the other end? if there is is i hope they know luckys never had his claws clipped (hes an outdoor cat=^..^= so usually he won’t let you get near his claws)

    thanks i hope you can explain somethings,katie

    • Natalie Lynn September 1, 2009 at 12:53 pm

      Hi katiethehorselover,

      Sorry I didn’t get to you sooner but it is a very busy time here…

      Now to your question about fairies with a book pointing to a person’s name–I have never heard of this but I do know that names have power and are sacred to the fae (which is why we don’t use Mr. E’s full name). A fae with good intentions would probably be trying to say that they knew this person’s name and meant no harm and therefore they could be trusted. A dark fae with this information would be seeking to use it to control the person, among other things.

      You can make a fairy house out of anything that suits you but I think they would feel most comfortable with natural surroundings so I would go with that whenever possible. Here, we have made wood and cardboard houses using regular glue, hot glue and even plexiglass for windows so you can use man made items but the more natural the better.

      Now about your cat chasing his tail…that could be fairies playing with him ( or annoying him 🙂 ). We have a cat that they do pick on occasionally–they say they do it because he needs the exercise! He doesn’t actually chase his tail, he crouches really low and turns to bite something on his back that we can’t see. Then he swipes at something that seems to be right in front of his face and runs like crazy, looking backward like he’s being followed! Sometimes, when this happens, I take pity on him and tell the pixies to leave him alone and it stops immediately.

      All the best,

  23. susan August 24, 2009 at 12:59 am

    hello, im just wondering how do you noe if the fairy is bad or good ?
    the signs you have given us, how did you find out about those ? and also, can i just print those out, tape them to the wall outside my garden and it would work ?

  24. J.Saint August 24, 2009 at 5:51 pm

    Actually, I have a question on the fey myself. Would there be a way to attract a night court faerie (Unseelie)without a negative result. I am correct in believing the two courts, right? I’ve only recently become interested in them, but it is immensely thought provoking. It was the books by Holly Black that got me interested. The main reason I wonder if I could work with them, is because I have fallen on rather dark emotions of late, and don’t think the Seelie court faeries would stay long. I know, I shouldn’t invite dark fey, but they feel more like me… Or are there faerie who would come visit, in spite of my darkness?

    • Natalie Lynn September 1, 2009 at 1:30 pm

      Hi J. Saint,

      I have read some of Holly Blacks books and they are great. It’s been a while since I read one so I don’t really remember how she depicted the unseelie but they are nothing to fool around with. It’s not like they would be your friend and the two of you could be dark together. No, they would use whatever darkness you had and make you suffer more if they could because they would enjoy that. They hate humans, want to destroy them and if you wanted to connect with them and make their job easier, they would be happy to oblige you. In my opinion, there is no way for you to summon a dark fae without a negative result.

      On the other hand, even though we sometimes feel dark, we can still attract the light, especially if our intentions are good.

      I am sending you some good energy to work with, hope it helps.


  25. Sadie August 27, 2009 at 6:01 pm

    Thanks, Natalie.
    Sorry for so many questions, but I have a few more:
    1)This isn’t really a question, but my friend and I made another fairy house together and put doll house furniture inside. we came back about an hour later and one chair was turned out (it hadn’t been) and one of the drawers in the little cabinet was open. Was it a fairy?
    2) I’ve moved to Los Angeles and wanted to make sure they are here, too
    3)What to fairies like to “take the essence of” particularly?
    4)Would fairies like gifts such as friendship bracelets?
    Thanks for your time, Sadie

  26. Delilah August 27, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Hi, I’m new here. My best friend, Sadie, showed me this website and I have a question myself.
    I put out a fairy house along time ago, but I started a knew one because I kind of forgot about it. When I first built it everything was moved around. Now, that I forgot about it, and checked it 2 days ago, nothing has been moved ever since.I have two older brothers and one of them told me that they peed on it.
    What smells do fairies usually like and what smells do they not like.
    Thanks, Delilah

    • Natalie Lynn September 1, 2009 at 5:45 pm

      Hi Delilah, glad you stopped by!

      Well….sounds like you might have had some fairy visitors but I don’t know a lot of the details. For example, was the house located where an animal could have gotten into it, etc.? Could one of your brothers or someone else have moved the stuff inside your house? These are the things we ask ourselves when we are dealing with possible paranormal activity.

      Hope this helps!


  27. Emily and Meghan August 28, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    Dear Natalie
    We just bave a few questions from the experts:)
    1.How likely is it to see a fairy, and where, what time etc… should you look out for them
    2. How much could the bad fairy’s hurt you? Could they curse you?
    3. If we put up the flag and do all that is suggested, will we have trouble with the faries?
    3. MEghan and I are best friends, not sisters, so we dont live together.. will that make any difference?
    5. How can we get them to trust us?

    Help us! We are ammatures!
    Love Emily and Meghan?

    P.s Can they read notes? (Human language?)

    • Natalie Lynn September 1, 2009 at 6:33 pm

      Hello Emily and Meghan,

      Nice to have you here! Now, about your questions…

      1) How likely is it to see a fairy? That’s a difficult question to answer since it really depends upon a lot of factors. First of all, are there any fairies around you to be seen? It looks like you are in the UK so I am guessing there are some type of fae nearby. Secondly, not everyone can actually see fairies. There are some people who seem to be able to see them quite easily and then there are others who can’t see them at all. On this blog, there are people who have seen them only once or twice but the one experience had a huge impact on them. It’s just different for everyone.
      2) How much can bad fairies hurt you? The answer is that dark fairies do not like humans and would like to see us all eliminated. How badly they can hurt you depends on how powerful they are but one of their favorite things to do is to make you feel bad about yourself. They will take any opportunity to bring out your negative feelings and make you doubt yourself and feel depressed.
      3) If you put up the flag, etc. will you have trouble with the fairies? You shouldn’t have trouble if you use the Fairy Protection Symbol plus attracting positive fairies will keep the dark ones away
      4) MEghan and I are best friends, not sisters, so we dont live together.. will that make any difference? No, I really don’t see why it would.
      5) How can we get them to trust us? This is from an answer on another post and I have copied it here because it really does answer your question:
      It can take a while for them to notice you–especially in the winter time. And, even when they notice you, it isn’t an absolute guarantee that they will want to communicate with you instantly. Sometimes they want to check you out and see if you are the type of human they would like to connect with. Fairies tend to be shy and mistrusting of humans and they generally have little time for humans who, in their view, have thoughtlessly mistreated the earth we both share. This is often a big obstacle that has to be overcome and you will probably need to prove yourself and earn their trust before they will decide to reach out to you.

      So, how can you prove yourself? Well, in order for the fairies to have a good opinion of you, you will need to let them see that you care for our earth and the environment. Recycling, tending a garden, looking after wildlife (I was a wildlife rehabilitator, for example), conserving energy, composting, reusing instead of discarding, and using natural products are all good ways to show the fae that you are sincere. But, proving to them that you are sincere and that this isn’t just another passing fancy for you, can take some time. How long it will take depends on you, and how sincere they perceive you to be.

      If you are patient and show them you are a caring, respectful, and dedicated person, they may reward and encourage you with a small glimmer of their presence. Be watchful because these offerings of their presence could go unnoticed to those who aren’t paying close attention. That little glimmer you thought you saw, that missing item, or that movement out of the corner of your eye could be one of those. If they see that you notice, you may get more of their attention and presence. Be sure to thank and encourage them anytime you think they have reached out to you.

      Hope this helps!

  28. KALVIN September 4, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    hello what do fairies and elves think about ghosts or spirits?

    • Natalie Lynn September 4, 2009 at 5:44 pm

      Hi Kalvin,

      They acknowledge that they exist but they have very little to do with them. However, we did have a negative entity here that scratched my daughter and they were very helpful in getting rid of it.


  29. KALVIN September 4, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    thank you for answering my question.

  30. KALVIN September 4, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    hello this may sound odd but how do i ask a fairy to leave but without hurting her feelings?

  31. Grace September 6, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    hi! my name is grace. i always loved fairies when i was little, but i really started considering they were real around 10 or 11. now im 13 and i really really want to talk to them or see them or whatever i can do! lol but what if your house isnt all that quite? well i mean sometimes it is but not often lol…

  32. Grace September 7, 2009 at 1:52 pm

    hi its me grace again!
    i have one more question…i put out a very very pretty part of a silver necklace(the necklace broke)out on my roof where i tend to go alot, and a i was wondering if they would take that kind of stuff. oh and it theres a big pine tree by the roof…do they like those?

  33. Nadine September 9, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    Hi, my name is Nadine and i believe in fairies, i wish one day to see one, but i have a question, if i do some of the things u said above about attracting them would they come if its in my house?? or it must be outside in a garden?? Could it be in my room? And i have this curious question, would they come to any country?? Cause im not in Europe, im in a arabic country, u think they would go or appear anywhere??
    Thank you…

  34. Rawlen September 13, 2009 at 3:01 pm

    I am thirteen. My parent’s don’t believe in this stuff, but I do. I have been wanting to help, and become a fairy’s friend, but I would love to know how to see them better. Me and my friend went into the woods behind my house when we were little. It seemed so mystical, I am sure that there are fairies in the woods. But the problem is that I went to far, and my mom forbid me to go into the woods ever agian. I sometimes do, and she never notices. I want to find fairies, please help.

    P.S. I have been trying to build up my sixth sence. I would love to have help with that, too.

  35. Amaya September 15, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    • Natalie Lynn September 26, 2009 at 5:32 pm

      Hi Amaya,

      It seems like your garden should definitely attract them so you might want to keep at it a bit longer. Is the weather getting colder there now? They aren’t very active in the cold months…


  36. sha September 21, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    hi, i am from Malaysia. last 2 month someone show me a dead fairy. he get it somewhere from Europe. he kept it because he believe it bring good luck. there is no fairy here in my place.I already see many type of creature, now i wish i can see a live fairy. but i am sure i cannot find it in Malaysia. any suggestion ?

  37. Lisa A.- Grey Eyes September 25, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Hi Amaya 🙂

    While it is true that there are generally more faeries of all types in the Natural wild areas — there are those faeries and pixies who also have been sighted in cities– strangely enough.

    Just the fact that you have some plants and flowers where you live is good–

    If you get a chance, get some bird seed and feed the birds near your apartment or home. Fix up your bedroom to make it faery friendly. Add natural things there in your room -and add a little home-made faery cottage for them.

    Put out semi-precious stones and seashells. Put out a dish of pretty trinkets , buttons, etc. They also love crystals too.

    If you have a windowsill- put out some pretty stones and crystals on the windowsill. They will see them from outside.

    Put out a sign that says, “Welcome Faerykind” or something like that.

    Just remember that you are not always going to see the faerie. Our human eyes can’t see them because their frequency is very high. However, sometimes , we can see them — and sometimes they will go the extra mile and use thier own energy to allow us to see them.

    Talk to them out loud when you are outside– and noone is around. They generally do not pay attention to human’s thoughts but when you speak to them out loud, it will get the attention of any brownie , faerie or pixie, gnome, etc… Tell them that the ones who love the Creator are welcome in your home any time– and that they are welcome to read your thoughts as you are not always able to speak to them outloud in front of other humans.

    Sooner or later, you will have some faerie visitors who are passing through your area before they go to the Country.

    Word will get around in thier realm that you are welcomeing them– you must be patient. You may see them in dreams first. You may hear them talk while you are half awake and half asleep.

    Hang in there! For what it’s worth– Britain is a very popular place with the Faeries !
