Supernatural report suggests places to visit for a truly high spirited Halloween.
Villagers of Croston in Leicestershire are amongst 755 British residents to believe in angelic supernatural presences, a new survey has found.
With 44 people proudly reporting a colony of fairies to be residing in nearby woods, the new report has listed Croston top in its table of paranormal hotspots. Croston residents are so sure of the presence that they have nicknamed the most active fairy 'Shrewfoot'. According to reports 'Shrewfoot' is very protective of humans and has acted more than once to save the lives of those he has interacted with.
Traditionally, ghosts and spirits have a reputation for being mischievous but new research shows this to be an unfair assumption. A survey carried out by television series 'Supernatural' suggests that there are a number of helpful spirits residing in the U.K.
Bad press stems from long-held theories by believers that supernatural presences are frustrated spirits who are trying to 'get to the other side', jealous of those that are still alive. These beliefs are reinforced by blockbuster horrors, or 'scare fests', that focus on paranormal activity and inevitably lead to further gruesome on-screen deaths.
However, a new report has revealed the key areas in Britain for a positive spiritual interaction. Featuring fairies, white witches, monks, and guardian angels, there have been a total of 755 reports in the past 25 years across the U.K.
The most common sightings are for benign entities; those which smile or wave and have 'good auras', some of which are said to appear to specifically to the bereaved. Others give the AA a run for their money, appearing to travellers who are lost or who are about to narrowly avoid an accident.
One such spirit is said to reside at Cold Ashton Manor in Gloucestershire, a building which has been derelict for decades. According to confused motorists, having lost their way, they felt an urge to call in at the Manor and were greeted by a butler who would point them in the correct direction.
But beware! The report also found that there were 227 complaints of evil spirits/activities in the past year alone.
So if you go down to the woods today, stay alert, you could be in for an otherworldly surprise.
