April showers bring May flowers. So that is the theme of our April Contest – water beings. To celebrate the free flowing of water again – and maybe even in hopes of harnessing it a bit in the wild weather some of us are experiencing – let’s celebrate the nature spirits who live in the water realm. Water babies, undines, sylphs and mermaids are some of the spirits who can manifest in form. Other water spirits are less solid – they appear as faces fading into and out of form.
I met a community of sylphs who exist in the same frequency as the Blues – those beings of a parallel earth to our own who are gentler and more in tune with nature. See below the best photo I’ve been able to take of them – their lovely, delicate yet strong high-rise structure rises out of the middle of this small Illinois lake. This complex structure is crystalline in appearance – like a grid of thin ice poles that is also supple in movement. I’m curious if any of you can see them as well?
Some of our members have a close connection to the mermaid world, and we may even coax some of them to share their experiences and those of their children….?
Here are other water-related images that have been sent in to us, over the years.
Post your own images to our closed Facebook Nature Spirit Group (head on over and join!) or you can submit them to email@example.com. The water spirit contest runs from April 1 through April 30 and winners will be announced the following Tuesday. The winner receives a $50 gift certificate to Crystal Life and their image will be featured in a blog and on-line in our Nature Spirit Group.
There is still time to submit photos for the March Contest, which ends midnight March 31st. This month’s contest is spirits who live around civic structures. Again, either post to our Nature Spirit group or send to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
