IS THERE a connection between fairy tales and esotericism?

OHMYGOSSIP – Fairy tales and esotericism have some similarities in that they both often deal with themes of magic, symbolism, and the supernatural. However, their primary focus and the way they approach these themes can differ.

Fairy tales are primarily stories that are passed down through generations and are meant to entertain, teach moral values and to provide a form of escapism for readers. They often feature magical elements such as talking animals, witches, and enchanted objects, but these elements are typically used to convey a moral or lesson in a metaphorical way.

Esotericism, on the other hand, is a broad category of knowledge that deals with hidden or occult wisdom, and encompasses a wide variety of spiritual and philosophical traditions. It often deals with the search for understanding of the inner nature of things, and can include practices such as alchemy, astrology, mysticism, and the occult.

Some fairy tales may be considered esoteric in nature, as they contain symbolic and allegorical meanings that reflect on the inner nature of things. But in general, the primary focus of fairy tales is to entertain and educate, while esotericism is mainly focused on the search for hidden knowledge and spiritual transformation.
