Dear Ones,

Here is a New Years Eve day film just for fun … a cleansing of the old, a promise of the new from Mother Gaia to each of us, through the agency of the Elementals of Earth, Air, and Water. As there are no words, there is no Summary …

The Deva of Elderberry Forebay and the Rough People in the Mountains . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is an intriguing channeling about the difference between the ‘rough people in the mountains’ and the spirits of the water. I have no doubt but what the nature of earth elementals, as opposed to water elementals, has to do with the beings dwelling in each of these places. It was the deva of Elderberry Forebay, Castaic Lake, that whispered this in my ear.

There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I went for a long walk today during the Gateway, which will be continuing until 20 January 2021. I am not finished yet, but I am on my way back. The view here is of a lot of mountains and a lot of water. It is rough terrain, but there is a great dirt road here (Goodell Fire Road by Elderberry Forebay, Castaic Lake, Los Angeles County, California).

The thing I was noticing on my way back is that I kept hearing a deep, threatening voice from the mountains. I would look up at the mountains, and I would hear this voice, and it would sound as if I were listening to the king of the dwarves … perhaps a Lord of the Greater Dwarves … or a big Troll … something very large and powerful, mighty and mean.

I was trudging back along the road … I have to make it back to the car before the Sun goes down … and making some headway. Then I thought: I will just ask for a good deva to talk to me for a minute.

So I said, into the astral airs: I would like to talk to a good deva instead of a bad deva for a minute … Oops! I am thinking there can be no such thing as a bad ‘deva’.  I should have said ‘instead of a bad astral being’ …

And a being came up to me. It was a little taller than I was. It had a voice like that of a mid-range voice for a man … not very deep, not very high. It sounded a little like honey.

The being there said: Look at the water and not the mountains. The mountains have rough people in them.

So I looked at the water, and right away my heart calmed down and felt soothed and happy. It is incredible!

I guess there is a lesson there … it is a lesson I never knew before, in case you would like to use it.

Here is the view … [Shows view of Elderberry Forebay, Castaic Lake, Los Angeles County, California, from Goodell Fire Road.]

On Form That Portrays Formlessness . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 20 September 2020; published on 21 September 2020

  • VIDEO BY ALICE

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

Here are thoughts on formed and formlessness beings, and on form that portrays formlessness …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would explain a little about form and formlessness, and the Angelic and Devic Realms, and God, as they express themselves in form and in Creation. God is infinite and formless, as they all say; but through viewing His Creation we can get a feeling of His beneficent qualities, the blessings that He feels in conferring on His creatures  … on the beings created … His grace and love and hope and peace … all those fine qualities that we find in Him.

There are formed and formless realms in Creation. We, for instance, have physical form. And we have forms less dense than the physical, known as ‘subtle bodies’. Then we have the Soul, which transcends time and space and form.

In the same way there are other beings in God’s creation that are not formed. There are many dimensions that are formless … many more so than the formed. The Angelic Realm, including the Devic Realm, is one such. The Angels and the devas sometimes delight in expressing themselves in physical form that we humans can see, much as we humans might create a sketch or painting of the natural world or of ourselves.

And so, in some of my blogs I have shown sketches that the devas of the Sun (the Solar devi) do to express their beingness … not so much their form as their formless state of beingness …

Once I showed a depiction of a sand painting by a jinni, that it had created through a vortex in the desert …

Sometimes the elementals create pictures of their emotional feelings in, for instance, the clouds, or ripples in the water. I have also taken pictures of these for you …

The Hathors of Earth’s Solar Planes devise pictures of Light that indicate their joyful character. As I channel, sometimes, the Hathors, I have been lucky enough to take snapshots, sometimes, of their depictions of their work through human beings here on Earth such as I … through Lightworkers here on Earth …

Just to let you know, then, the pictures of these formless beings that I am lucky enough to get pictures of, are not really pictures of the beings themselves, but rather, of the depictions they make in the physical realm of their formless beingness.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

I have found very interesting information on nature spirits amongst the writings of the School of Theosophy. For some of this, one must go to the source, as it is still under copyright. As well, I have found a good source of information, from C.W. Leadbeater of the School of Theosophy, regarding the nature spirits, that is in the public domain.

Dear Ones,

Here is information on nature spirits from various sources …

………………………………….
ELEMENTALS

“An elemental is a mythic being described in occult and alchemical works from around the time of the European Renaissance and particularly elaborated in the 16th century works of Paracelsus. There are four elemental categories: gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders … These correspond to the Classical elements of antiquity: earth, water, air and fire. Aether (quintessence) was not assigned an elemental. Terms employed for beings associated with alchemical elements vary by source and gloss …

“Universally, an elemental is a type of magical entity who personifies a force of nature and controls natural powers derived from their element.

“Within the Paracelsian concept an elemental is a mythic being described in occult and alchemical works from around the time of the European Renaissance and particularly elaborated in the 16th century works of Paracelsus. From the classical Paracelsian perspective there are four elemental categories: gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders … These correspond to the Classical elements of antiquity: earth, water, air and fire. Aether (quintessence) was not assigned an elemental. Terms employed for beings associated with alchemical elements vary by source and gloss.

“Paracelsus … noted that undines are similar to humans in size, while sylphs are rougher, coarser, longer, and stronger. Gnomes are short, while salamanders are long, narrow, and lean. The elementals are said to be able to move through their own elements as human beings move through air. Gnomes, for example, can move through rocks, walls, and soil. Sylphs are the closest to humans in his conception because they move through air like we do, while in fire they burn, in water they drown, and in earth, they get stuck. Paracelsus states that each one stays healthy in its particular ‘chaos,’ as he terms it, but dies in the others.”

[His size evaluations do not entirely match mine. –Alice B. Clagett]

“Paracelsus conceived human beings to be composed of three parts, an elemental body, a sidereal spirit, and an immortal divine soul. Elementals lacked this last part, the immortal soul. However, by marriage with a human being, the elemental and its offspring could gain a soul.” — from Link: “Elemental,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elemental … CC BY-SA 3.0

Link: “The Elemental Kingdom,” at Bibliotecapleyades …  https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/mapas_ocultotierra/esp_mapa_ocultotierra_6a.htm ..

This may be because, in Islamic theology, the Jinn are said to be made of a ‘mixture of fire’ or made of ‘smokeless fire’. [from Link: “Jinn,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinn .. ] From my own experience, I would say that the Jinn are like both fire and wind. –Alice B. Clagett

Link: “Hylas and the Nymphs,” in Artble … https://www.artble.com/artists/john_william_waterhouse/paintings/hylas_and_the_nymphs ..

There are different names for Undines, including Water Spirits, Limoniades, Naiads, Mermaids, Oreads, Potamides, Oceanids, and Sea Maids. –from Link: “The Elemental Kingdom,” at Bibliotecapleyades … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/mapas_ocultotierra/esp_mapa_ocultotierra_6a.htm ..

Information on each of these can be found on Wikipedia. Below are the Wikipedia descriptions of Undines and Naiads.

“Undines … (or ondines) are a category of elemental beings associated with water, first named in the alchemical writings of Paracelsus. Similar creatures are found in classical literature, particularly Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Later writers developed the undine into a water nymph in its own right, and it continues to live in modern literature and art through such adaptations as Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Mermaid’.

“Undines are almost invariably depicted as being female, and are usually found in forest pools and waterfalls. The group contains many species, including nereides, limnads, naiades and mermaids. Although resembling humans in form, they lack a human soul, so to achieve immortality they must acquire one by marrying a human. Such a union is not without risk for the man, because if he is unfaithful he is fated to die.” –from Link: “Undines,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undine … CC BY-SA 3.0

……

“In Greek mythology, the Naiads … are a type of female spirit, or nymph, presiding over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water.

“They are distinct from river gods, who embodied rivers, and the very ancient spirits that inhabited the still waters of marshes, ponds and lagoon-lakes, such as pre-Mycenaean Lerna in the Argolis.

“Naiads were associated with fresh water, as the Oceanids were with saltwater and the Nereids specifically with the Mediterranean, but because the ancient Greeks thought of the world’s waters as all one system, which percolated in from the sea in deep cavernous spaces within the earth, there was some overlap. Arethusa, the nymph of a spring, could make her way through subterranean flows from the Peloponnesus, to surface on the island of Sicily.” –from Link: “Naiad,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naiad … CC BY-SA 3.0

HOW DIFFERENT SORTS OF ELEMENTALS RELATE TO DIFFERENT SORTS OF HUMANS

“For when the Fair in all their Pride expire,
To their first Elements the Souls retire:
>The Sprites of fiery Termagants in Flame
Mount up, and take a Salamander’s name.
Soft yielding minds to Water glide away,
>And sip, with Nymphs, their elemental Tea.
The graver Prude sinks downward to a Gnome,
In search of mischief still on Earth to roam.
The light Coquettes in Sylphs aloft repair,
And sport and flutter in the fields of Air.”
— Alexander Pope, the Rape of the Lock, Canto 1, 1714 … public domain
