A Sokli Kind Of Walk

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Benjamin Franklin

I needed to go for a walk to do some chores yesterday morning. Rain was forecast for the afternoon, so I got ready to leave home – without my umbrella.

As I stood at the front door I heard the cheeky little voice of my fairy friend, Sokli. ‘Take your umbarella,’ she said.

So I took my ‘umbarella’ and walked out into a perfectly sunny day.

I’d walked a couple of blocks when I heard her little voice again, ‘Put your umbarella up!’

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, but I dutifully put up my umbrella and kept walking.



I was swooped by cranky nesting Magpies, big beautiful black-and-white Australian birds who are notorious for attacking humans during breeding season.

They hit the umbrella a few more times as I walked by, my head protected by the shield Sokli had so thoughtfully suggested I take. On the way home I walked the same way, and once again Sokli told me when to put the umbrella up, and when to take it down again.

Thank goodness for fairies!

Much love, and a slightly dinged up ‘umbarella’, Nicole xx

  1. Hi Nicole, it’s Kerri Ryan here. Fairies or elementals have been on my radar for a while now and I so want to be in greater communication with what is around me. I’m living on Coochiemudlo Island which is still vital and natural enough to have them around. In fact I see things scooting around in my house out of the corner of my eye all the time. What would Sokli recommend I do to invite greater contact with them? I’m a little bit scared in fact, of having mischevious gremlins in my house and not being able to get them out. Should I create an outside space and leave out some offerings for them?


    1. Hey Kerri, SO lovely to hear from you. Sokli and I both wish people would stop seeing fairies as mischevious! There is so much more to them than that. Sokli recommends hanging out in nature and saying hello. They’ll make themselves known if they want to. They don’t need offerings or gifts. They simply need to be seen for who they are, just like us. Enjoy Coochie!!! Big hugs and love, Nicole xx

    1. That is just the cutest thing! I had a stressful morning, and this story made my day. I love corvids!
