Well. I could tell you more but I'm afraid you may tell me you already know hahah! I'll give it a shot anyway. I have faory guides too. I see them all the time. I have gnomes as guides as well. Fairies are very picky with humans. If you want to see one, go to a spot of nature, where there is a circle of stones flowers trees, any circle of nature they live and dwell around there. Ask for them to show themselves.
If they don't, its because you have to prove yourself. It can take days, weeks, even months sometimes. They want to make sure you mean well. You may get an urge to pick up litter, to sing, to dance, to give them chocolate (unwrapped of course, they LOVE chocolate), you may have to keep doing this for a few days, or weeks, in that area you want to see them .. for them to show themselves. They love chocolate as i have said, dance, music.. they love people who make sure to take care of the planet. If you litter even the tiniest little bit, they may give you the silent treatment.
Every single animal has a fairy, if you have a cat or dog, or whatever, ask their fairy to show themselves. There was this bunny in my yard that got stuck almost sliding down this steep dirt hill, it was a baby bunny. The dirt slipping under its feet. I touched the ground to channel the energy to the bunny without getting close and scaring it and asked its fairy to help it back up (to its mom and sibling, they live in my garden) .. and I saw the orb not the whole fairy and the dirt stopped slipping under its feet and it made three big hops and made it back to my yard.
Oh ya, sometimes you just see the orb or the fairy, sometimes they completely show themselves. They are very caring for nature. People say they vanished from society. That is true for some, but a lot of them stayed back. Every animal has one, every plant has one or a few, some animals have a few. Some humans have a few. The fairies are really upset with how people have been treating the planet, our home. So they don't trust that easy.
Sounds like they enjoy you though =)
