Fairies

What actually are the beings that we call fairies, and what are they doing here on Earth with us?  Exact definitions seem to be very difficult to agree on. As with the name devas, which covers a myriad of beings living among us, and working to help maintain our biosphere, people use the term fairies to describe many types of elemental being. In this post I will be looking at the more conventional  ”garden” fairies that many people have experience of. I will be looking at the other types of Devas in the next few weeks. (more…)

Devas and the range of nature spirits

 

What are these spirit beings called Devas that seem to inhabit our reality with us? The term Deva first appeared in early Vedic literature as a class of divine benevolent supernatural beings (Deva means shining one in Sanskrit). In Buddhism it applies to different types of non-human beings who share some godlike characteristics, including very long life and strength.

When you begin researching what actually Devas are today though, the matter becomes even more complex. The term is often used to describe any of the beings that inhabit our reality that are made just of etheric matter or energy.  They are still considered to be magical or supernatural beings, vibrating at a higher frequency than us, so only visible to some sensitive individuals, or those with their 3rd eye activated.

Variations on the Fairy theme

As we all are at base, fairies in all their different forms, are beings made of pure energy. The difference is that they are said not also have a physical body with blood, veins and bones as we do.

Some people do see them as we have been taught they look, others see them just as pinches of vibrating energy.

The more I research, the more different variations on the fairy theme I find. Fairies seems to be a general term for a huge variety of beings, seen or unseen that co-inhabit our Earth. There are not just the pretty fairies in our folk law with cute little wings, but include Devas, leprechauns, selkies, salamanders, elves, pixies and elementals+ even more variations on the theme.

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.
