The Pagan Blog Project: I DO believe in faeries, I do, I do

Well if you watched Peter Pan at all, you may have heard this before.
The question is, DO you?
There is an uncountable number of Pagan religions, each with their differences - and believe it or not, some of them really do beleive in faeries, some worship them, and then there are those that don't. That's okay, we can all still get along right?
Now, I'd like to point out that no matter which path you follow, (unless your path is entirely centered around them) it is not neccessary to beleive in faeries, no matter what someone might say. As I've said before, you can't force yourself to believe something.
First, I'd like to make a little note on the spelling. As with magick, I like to spell it the more uncommon way, "faerie" as opposed to "fairy" simply to distinguish between fiction and... religious belief.
It is common for Heathen's to believe in the fair folk, or the fey (faeries), as well as in many other cultures and religions. But then, whato or who are they exactly?
There are naturally various answers to this question. Usually, people envision small people of great beauty and magic... But sometimes they are simply spirits. The most general idea is that they are, well, fair folk - they can't lie, they are beutiful in their own form (not neccessarily to humans standards of beauty), and they come in many forms. Pixies, imps, brownies, nymphs, and fire, wind and water faeries... And they can be quite tricksy too! Should you offend or dishonour one, they are said to take their revenge, none too kindly. It is also a thought that you can only see them if either you believe them, or if they want you to see them. And don't forget of course, that they possess magick.

Personally, I'd love to believe in faeries! (Even if they could be pesky). Though, I have always struggled to believe what I cannot prove for myself, and as I have never seen a faerie...... But I can dream right? So, just to be on the safe side, I try to think of them from time to time, perhaps honour them by putting a little honey on a ledge by the garden?
For all I know they very well could be invisible to those who don't believe. Honestly, I think if the fae are out there, they are wandering spirits... humans in their true, etheral form.
