Storm Elemental

As before discussed, an elemental is a type of magical entity who personifies a force of nature and controls natural powers derived from their element. The 16th century Alchemist, Paraclelsus, identified the four categories, gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders which I explored last time. These correspond to the classical elements of antiquity: earth, water, air and fire. These are still widely used today. This may not be the whole story though.

It has been brought to my attention that there are other elemental beings though, who are just as vital in our reality, for example, STORM.  My American contact Matthew Gibson has explained to me that Storm is an enhancement element that freely combines quite often with the other four physical elements: earthquakes, tornadoes, forest fires/infernos, and hurricanes are all examples of this.

The problem is though, as with all the elementals, that the rise of the fantasy games industry, has blurred even further the lines between fact and fiction in researching these beings. Very excitingly though, there are more elemental beings which are fundamental to the creation of our reality.

These I will explore next time.

The Face on Mars

Went to a lecture last night on “The face on Mars “on the area of Mars known as  Cydonia. Massives (large hills(?)with shiny tops ,high albedo) nearby can be linked to show a regular geometric pattern which hardly seems natural. A member of the audience then contributed to tell us about his work on ancient sites in the UK, which had similar geometric angles and values. Could there be a link? The strange structures that look like buildings on the dark side of the moon, were also discussed. The question then was “Are these evidence of ancient alien civilizations?” There have been several books published on the phenomenon, and other strange structures on Mars.

Gnomes, sylphs, undines and salamanders


Beyond science, hard information is very difficult to obtain on these special and vital beings. I have distilled the information available as accurately as I could.  The trouble is that many people and sources do not always agree. Myth and fantasy games also muddy the information stream. All I can say is that, all sources agree that these beings live on the astral plane and seem to be essential to our, and the Earth’s, existence. In some senses this is a simplified story, though, but glimpses of a bigger picture of reality do begin to emerge.

Gnomes ( Earth elementals)

Dumpy and grumpy guarding mines and treasures. They are said to move through the Earth at will. They are usually portrayed as wizened old men with pointed hats and beards. The nature spirits who serve at the physical level are called gnomes.

There are said to be billions of Gnomes that work tirelessly all the year round to make sure that all living things get what they need. They also process waste and mitigate, where possible, pollutants, negative energies as well as those physically poisonous to the Earth and humanity.

Sylphs ( Air elementals)

Sylphs are believed to be an offshoot branch of the sidhe, a supernatural race comparable to the fairies or elves. Sometimes they look like clouds, other times they can be seen as tall thin humans, but with large wings. They can be mistaken for angels or vice – versa. They are said to purify the air, but also the mental plane. They can soar above the Earth at will and travel great distances.

Undines ( Water elementals)

Undines are supposed to be spirits of the water, some say present in every drop. The undines protect water and also try to cleanse waters that have been poisoned by sewage, industrial waste, chemicals, pesticides and other substances. They work ceaselessly to heal the polluted seas. They usually, but not always, resemble female humans, mermaids are supposed to be a sub –species, but there are others. As mermaids they may interact with human men. Merman also exist.

Salamanders ( Fire elementals)



Great claims are made for salamanders. They are said to appear as adult male humans made from flames or sometimes lizards. They control the element of fire.

In some circles they are said to infuse our reality with the energies of the Spirit necessary to sustain life on earth. Capable of wielding both the most intense fires of the physical atom and the purifying, spiritual fires of Spirit, they control the spiritual-material oscillation of light within the nucleus of every atom. They are agents for the transfer of the fires of the subtle world for our everyday use. They also absorb negativity from humanity.


This is just one layer of elemental beings though. The big picture of elemental beings in our reality is much more complex and includes ourselves.

More next time.




Elemental spirits of Earth, fire, air and water

Alongside all the other nature spirits there are elemental beings which also help life on Earth to exist and flourish. In antiquity there was said to be 4 elements which made up the Earth. That is earth, fire, air and water. Our understanding of these elemental beings is based on these categories. The Chinese have a 5th, iron, and I am sure there are many other cultural variations.

Leprechauns, goblins et al

There are many other little people, as well as elves and gnomes, that are said to routinely interact with humans in our reality. There are brownies, dwarfs, imps, sprites, merman and maids, sylphs, undines, asrai (aquatic fairy), selkies, pixie etc etc. They all seem to be considered fairies, but although they are all held to have magical powers, the way they interact with humans and the environment seems totally different.

Elves and Gnomes

There seems to be  so many” little people” of myth and legend in our reality, classified as devas, but very hard to pin down. Of all the Devas I have looked at, elves and gnomes, apart from fairies of course, are among the best known. The trouble is that any search for the truth about elves and gnomes info gets soon caught up in the world of fantasy. I came across Christmas helping Santa Elves, middle earth Tolkien Elves, and the Elves and Gnomes of German folklore. There are even Lego Elves and, of course, garden Gnomes! It is very hard to distinguish elf and gnome fact from a rich tradition of elf and gnome fantasy. Read the rest of this entry »


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.

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.

Other beings in our reality- fairies, nature spirits, et al 2

Who is with us in this reality of ours? In this jigsaw of our existence, what other beings are sharing our space? What does their existence mean for the big picture of life?

I have looked extensively at Angels and aliens and even ancient aliens (look back under these categories if you are interested). There is another class, or classes of beings, though, that also seem to be with us. These are fairies, nature spirits and elves  to name just a few. Just my preliminary researches uncovered a vast rich world that I had been unaware of until now. Some are mentioned extensively in folk lore, but still seem to be with us today. Some must have been with us since the beginning of time. Read the rest of this entry »
