It was back in 1995 that I began to consciously communicate with spirit beings. It started with angels and evolved over time to include nature spirits of many kinds. I have an affinity for wood elves, gnomes and the green people, and have come to have contact and conversation with many other species of nature spirits including leprechauns, trolls, ladies of the forest, and local deva. I’ve taken photos of many of these beings, as they have manifested themselves in rocks and trees.
I never thought much about the different types of nature spirits that exist. I just stayed open to communication with these beings, learning from them what they call themselves. But recently they have begun putting in my mind that it might be nice to figure out exactly what types of nature spirits there are, and how to classify them.
So I wanted to ask you, the audience of this blog who are interested in this topic, what you know from personal experience. What types of nature spirits and angelic beings have you come in contact with? Has this been primarily of a personal nature or have you asked them how their world works? What have they told you?
It’s time to start pooling the new awareness that is entering our world, in which we are communicating knowingly with beings of other realms. I’d like to know what you know and wish to share. Email us and we’ll start assembling our joint knowledge.
I’ve found that prevailing perceptions of nature spirits are all too often tainted by fear brought on by religious or cultural prejudices; or have converted regal beings into Disney-cuteness.
My online research points to Paracelsus as having formulated what is widely considered the most authentic classification. He lived in the late 1400s-early 1500s and is often considered to be an aspect of the being known at various times as Valmiki-Thoth-Mercury-Paracelsus-St Germain. He divided nature spirits, or elementals, into four categories according to the elements of which they are formed: air, fire, water, earth. Their line of evolution is from nature spirits to the angels. This being, especially his aspect as Thoth, was instrumental in my own personal awakening.
It was not until the 20th century that there was a systematic attempt to integrate the existence of elementals into a wholistic world view. Chief among those doing so are the Theosophical Society, followed by Rudolph Steiner. More recently Marko Pogacnik, the Findhorn Community and Michelle Small Wright of Perelandra have made significant contributions to the awareness that Nature Spirits are real life forms with whom humans can work for common benefit.
I myself have been gifted with information on the nature of interdimensional cooperation between many different realms who co-exist on earth, resulting in three books We are Not Alone; Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts; and my photo book of nature spirits, Nature Spirits in American Trees.
But, above all, my inner team wanted me to first experience the reality of these life forms as other conscious beings similar to myself – just as I, an American, am similar but different from an Argentinian or a French person.
All these life forms in all these worlds are able to communicate and be friends and work colleagues for the betterment of earth. These interactions lead to a natural desire to understand more about a friend’s world.
So I am inviting you, our readers, to contribute your own personal knowledge to our joint awareness of this amazingly diverse planet on which we live. Please email me at email@example.com with your own stories and knowledge!
