Dear Ones,

Here is a short video about Naiads (also known as nyads, or water nymphs), which are a type of nature spirit that loves and cares for a specific portion of Earth’s waters, whether it be a spring, a stream, a waterfall, a seasonal water hole, a narrows, a strait, a pond, a lake, a reservoir, a sea, an iceberg, a field of snow, a glacier, or an ocean.

I have read there are other names for water nymphs. For instance, there are the Nereids, said to be nymphs of the Mediterranean sea. And there are Oceanids, nymphs of a great freshwater river once said to encircle Earth.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

See how the water is here? See these forms … these silvery forms? Like this! …
