The reality of nature spirits

There are many people who believe that Divas and other nature spirits exist to help all growing things on the earth. Some even help the earth itself. The theory states that every growing thing has an invisible (to most) etheric helper. Their purpose seems to be here to help the plants of our biosphere grow and thrive. Nature simply would not function without them.

 

What could they be?

The theosophists, I am told, believe them to be part of a separate branch of evolution.

Others believe that they are part of the angelic kingdom, involved from the beginnings of time in the very creation of the earth. The theory is, evolution, as described by Charles Darwin, could not have succeeded without their help.

 

Other types of nature spirits

There are many different types. Alongside the devas there are the so called the elemental spirits residing in earth, air, fire and water. Some consider that the gnomes, fairies and giants and others of our mythology were actually manifestations of these nature spirits. All have different jobs to do. Some spirits look after whole mountain ranges or forests. There is a belief in some circles that angels are just a type of deva charged to look after us.

 

What do they look like?

Most people have not the ability to see them. Some feel them, some people claim that they are able to work with them. Of course they probably do not look like the pictures in our children’s story books. I have spoken to a couple of very sensitive people who claim to have seen them. They claim that they are just buzzy flashes of energy, vibrating so quickly that there is some sort of impression of wings. These are just one type of spirit, others take different forms. The devas are supposed range in size from one atom to unimaginably large. They are all considered to be essential for the continuation of life on earth.

 

Can we prove they exist?

Apart from the personal experience of many people, there is, of course, no scientific proof that these spirits exist. There is some confirmation, though, in the existence of the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland. Their claim is that they use the nature spirits to wrest abundant crops out of fundamentally inhospitable ground. They have done so very successfully for many years. The principle is to work cooperatively and co-create with nature. Is the existence of these beings likely? I have certainly never come across one. Although their reality is unprovable with our limited science, in practice there is considerable anecdotal evidence across many cultures. The possibility of their existence cannot be completely ruled out.

 

Aspects of reality

The implications for our aspects reality are though quite clear. Whatever the exact truth of these angels and divas and elementals, there seems to be, usually unseen, entities operating along side humanity. Where they actually come from and why they are helping us is a mystery. The only thing we can be sure of is that life and reality on earth is many layered, not just as we see it. Reality is much more complex and stranger than we can imagine.
