Just a word of advice, actually study the British folklore of fairies and don't just assume them to be a type of being which will help. They are not all sweetness and light and can be quite sinister. People on the Isle of Mann for example pay them respect out of fear, not out of love, because of the misfortune they are believed to cause if one does not pay them respect.
The same goes for dragons, Western dragon folklore is normally centred around a dragon which is killing people, accepting sacrifice of humans for appeasement, and hoarding treasure greedily. A Jungian psychoanalyst would liken it to a symbol for the lower portions of the ego. Normally a hero figure, such as St. George, slays the dragon. Chinese culture has a mix of benevolent and malevolent dragons.
And I'll just say now what most people will never say and never want to hear. Unless you can astral project or utilise your astral or inner senses, you will never see nor will you ever experience any spiritual being. This is why there are systems of magic. To train an individual, people who try and jump straight in either drown, or tread in shallow water never reaching the deep end.
