As Brownies( i assume you are not referring to chocolate confectionery or junior girlscouts) are celtic with Scandinavian links, i would have thought it most unlikely that you would attract one, unless of course your medication needs some adjustment.

You may be attracting raccoons or rats.

For brownies, I suggest calling the GSA troop nearest you.

"summoning a Brownie" sounds like constipation.

I went to the fridge to summon a brownie but my spouse told me to get out of them because she was saving them for her ladies club meeting that was later in the day.

Well now that we've thoroughly hijacked the crap out of this thread with our 8th grade potty humor.. I'd like to ask... how many people actually believe in faeries and brownies and other magical creatures? When I first started lurking here there was a lot of talk about this stuff, and the resident expert on the subject ended up being some kind of a roll playing fraud... but people took him seriously when he talked about leaving a bowl of milk out in your garden to attract faeries. Although I feel I have a very open mind on most subjects, this is beyond ridiculous to me. Does anyone here actually believe in faeries and brownies? I promise I won't make fun of you if you do (although I can't speak for Albion). If you do believe in them, how do you know of their presence, other than the milk being gone? Can you see them? Do they talk to you? What do they look like? Tinkerbell?(Damn I wish I hadn't made that promise)

If you GOOGLE "Cottingley fairies" you will see a long lasting hoax on the subject, the funny thing is that i live just a few minutes walk from their claimed location but all i ever saw was Pink Elephants!

Can't really say I do. Wood spirits, perhaps. Spirits of the land, elementals...perhaps. Brownies, fairies...aren't they related, or based off those to begin with? If they are there, I believe they go unseen. BIG if.

Big difference between spirits of the land and brownies. For one, I don't think spirits of the land drink milk.

But...I thought brownies and milk went together rather well?

OK, you set that up...all I did was bite.

OH! There's another one! LOL

All right, seriously now...spirits have no need of earthy sustenance, I would imagine. What do you all think?

I've never read anything to 'attract' a brownie, according to the legends they simply come and go as they will. The one part of the legend(s) that is interesting is that you do not "thank" or offer a "gift" as a reward to a brownie for some good turn they have done you, if you do, they leave.

Odds are they wouldn't, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't look favorably upon a specific "sacrifice" to them from time to time, and certain woodland spirits were also associated with particular animals as well, they might be inclined to look favorably upon the "mortal" who left offerings of food that would be attractive to their animal friends...

So, and I mean this respectfully, we are back to the raccoons.

Well, I suppose it's all in the way you look at things. Someone who brings treats for my pets do tend to get on my good side. Even with Ghosts and other Paranormal phenomenon, those who believe and certain other conditions are more apt to experience such things than those who don't believe and even with the medical Placebo effect, the belief that they are 'cured' of whatever ailment actually brings about the cure in many cases.
Am I saying I believe in Brownies? No, I'm saying that William Shakespeare said it best in Hamlet, scene V "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

If "Gods" are real, what else might be?
I'm not saying that others won't have to convince me, I am saying that I'm willing to entertain the thought.

I can't say that I believe specifically in fairies or brownies or whatever. But I have to say that I have spent alot of time in the fields, farmlands, and woodlands around and sometimes when meditating you can get a sensation of "not alone". What is it? I don't know. I just figure there is alot out there science hasn't found yet, and that some times primitive man had a clearer veiw then we do.

I was going to make a joke about how primitive man believed the sun was god, but now that I think about it, he was a hell of a lot closer than about 75 percent of the people living on the planet today... 250,000 years later.

Bang on P&P.
I will return to give my full thoughts on this, I need more coffee to clarify my thoughts.

An astronomical phenomenon that IS directly responsible for maintaining the life of this planet as compared to the worship of someone who others claim to be the "son of god"? It makes you wonder who the true primitives are.
