The White Women

December 6th, 2007 by sabrina

The White Women are known throughout the world by many names–in Germany they are the Weisse Frauen, in the Netherlands the Witte Wieven, and in France les Dames Blanches. They are the spirits of wise women who have passed to the next world, and they usually reside near hills, bridges and graveyards, appearing to people who pass by.

They are kind to those who are kind to them, and with their gift of prophecy they often give a glimpse into the future. Those who disregard them will find their journey filled with obstacles.
