Interview with Faeriologist Susie Kleppe:
Discovering the Mystical World of Fairies

By Theresa Nygard

Fairies are the subject of much and much question and mystique.  Faeriology is the study of fairies, elementals, and nature spirits, as they may appear in fiction, myth, and the first-hand accounts of people who have had fairy encounters. Twin Cities “Faeriologist” Susie Kleppe loves to explore this information. When Susie was a toddler, her mother would set her out in the pasture, up against an oak tree, and say, “Sit here and play with the fairies, Susie.” Susie thought this was fantastic: “I'm a two year old, I'm new to this universe, I'm thinking, 'Cool, this is what life is here!' So I just sat there and played with my fairy companions.” Her mother’s ingenious daycare arose out of her own belief in fairies. “My mother called them the 'Little People'”, says Susie, “and she had a fairy companion, a green man, who was with her until the day she died. He took my mother’s hand and led her back home.”

Susie's mother encouraged her to explore spiritually, to learn about and visit different churches. When Susie was 18, she got involved with the Gnostica Bookstore in Minneapolis, the beginning of Llewellyn publications, a large metaphysical publisher today. There she took classes on numerology, tarot, palm reading, astrology. Susie also studied Seth materials, and took classes taught by Byron Katie, before she became a best-selling author.  Susie comments about her classes with Byron Katie, “That was astounding work back then, and it is still really powerful work that I use when I need it.”

Susie also cites the movie “The Secret” and the law of attraction materials by Esther and Jerry Hicks as part of her spiritual development. Susie says that when she read Ask and It is Given, “I felt as though I’d known this my whole life, and now someone's written it out. “

When her youngest child turned 18 and left home to go on tour as a professional figure skater, Susie asked herself, “Now what do I do?” She wanted to find something that inspired her. “Then I came back around to my interest in knowing about fairies. I wanted to know if other people have had experiences with fairies, and what kind of experiences they’ve had.” Susie delved into the literature available, ventured off to fairy conventions, and took classes to hone her skills in communicating with the fairy kingdom.  She started her own website, and most recently has been appointed the “Resident Faeriologist” at the Faery House in Buffalo. There she does fairy card readings, provides information, and sells fine fairy merchandise.

Susie remarks that she can tell when fairies are around by how she feels:
“When I'm feeling hyper-joy, that's the fairies. Now I feel them rather than see them, but when I was a child, I saw them in many different forms.  Fairies will come in whatever form they feel will serve the person the best. So initially they came to me as twins, Jackie and Johnny, who were the same size as me, the same age as me, and we just played. When I got a little older they were still named Jackie and Johnny, but they were more like an advanced fairy being.”

Susie feels that fairies have a specific purpose on the planet. “I would give this comparison. Angels are the messengers to and from God – they speak on God's behalf, do God's work overall.  Fairies, on the other hand, have their dominion in the natural world. And as human beings, homo sapiens, mammals, we are part of that natural world. So they interact with us to that degree. We're just one small part of their world. They pretty much do their thing, and they like to see us evolve, progress, and be happy. Sometimes I hear them joke, , 'Be happy damn it!'”

Susie has a group of fairies that work with her, she calls them the Fairy Continuum. “These fairies are trouping fairies, so they travel with me. Some fairies will be a flower fairy and stay with that flower and not go anywhere.  I asked the trouping fairies if they had a name I could refer to them by.  Fairies don't like names, the whole concept of labels is repulsive to them – because you can't really explain what they are. They said I could call their group the Fairy Continuum.”

Susie believes that she herself originated as a fairy. She speaks of the adaptation process of living on the planet: “It's not so much the body that I had difficulties with. It was the darkness, the contrast, of the world that was really crushing to me, There are so many young ones coming in now, they're here counter-balance that darkness. But when they interact with that, it's like they can't even breathe.”
At this point Susie speaks of a teaching dream she had, which helped her understand how to deal with the darkness.  In the dream the advanced fairy beings Jackie and Johnny are on each side of her as she looks out the window .  “It’s dark, thunder is booming, lighting is crashing down, buildings are being destroyed -- it's just chaos, and all kinds of darkness. I'm saying to myself, 'Oh my God, this is really horrible, I feel terrible.' And the fairy beings with me said, ‘Right, now we want you to turn around and look out the other window.'  And out the other window is a beautiful sunny day, it's like a Disney movie: Everything is beautiful -- with bright colors, birds and fairies flying around. And they said, 'Susie you always have a choice of which window to look out.' And that was awesome to me, because I can remind myself, 'What window am I looking out right now? Do I need to turn around?'”

When Susie works with young people, she says that sometimes the most important thing is helping them understand they don’t have to do anything about the darkness. “That's not what they're here to do -- they're here to turn on the light, that's their job. There's no turn-off-the-dark switch. There's only a turn-on-the-light switch. To cope, that's what we have to do, we have to just keep turning the light back on.”
