Welcome to Calling on the Angels! I’ve asked for people to share their stories and experiences with the other side, and this one came from my friend, Calisse Basada. Here’s Calisse’s story:
My best friend and I were 13 and we knew that someone had been tearing up her yard while we slept. So as a way to catch this vandal we set up a night vision camera and pointed it out into her back yard. From her bedroom window you could see across her yard and into the neighbor’s yard. A great view for catching evil doers.
The next day there was no vandalism in the yard but we looked through the tape anyway. After scanning through a big bunch of nothing we saw a small figure walking down her neighbor’s yard. The figure stood no more than 4 feet tall. We were able to tell the height since it was walking right near the neighbors RV that they had parked in the back. This blue glowing figure was happily walking swaying its arms back and forth with every step. As it reached the edge of the RV the figure stopped, and turned to look right at the camera as if it just noticed that it was being recorded. Suddenly the figure jumped up into the air, the glow faded and as the figure hit the ground it became a rabbit. With that magical display it flicked its little bunny ears and scampered off.
My friend and I were shocked and of course quickly ran to show our parents the footage. First her mom then when my parents came to pick me up her mom insisted that they see it too. Both moms were shocked while my step dad stayed skeptical of what it was we saw. Our parents were all Christian and this kind of thing didn’t happen where they came from so there wasn’t much discussion beyond the mention of “Well that’s strange.”
During a visit with my dad I excitedly explained what happened in the tape and with his brightest all knowing smile he said “You saw a Sidhe (pronounced Shee). He explained to me that Sidhe were nature spirits or faries as we like to call them and that they have the ability to change form. “Keep that video close and put a protection spell around it. If they know you have it they will steal it from you.” A task that I never got around to doing. To this day the tape seems to have mysteriously vanished even though it was meant to sit with my friend’s collection of family video which is still all on the shelf, all but that one tape.
That day I saw my first Sidhe I knew all of that mumbo jumbo my dad was always talking about was real, and so began my first steps onto my spiritual path.
