Tiny Anthologies: Gnome Homes . photos by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are some photos of mine that I fancifully call ‘gnome homes’. The first two are standard ‘root gnome’ homes. Then there are three photos of ‘fern gnome homes’. Then there are two photos of ‘city gnome homes’.

Gnomes like dark places; that is clear. From their ability to improvise new homes in the cities of Earth, I can tell these types of nature spirits are highly intelligent and adaptible, despite their earthly bearings …

The Gnomes and Trolls of John Bauer . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 12 May 2022
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

  • ARE THESE GNOMES?
  • THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?
  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

Here are some of the nature spirits painted by John Bauer. I like his illustrations very much!  There is a hiccup which I will discuss below. At any rate, here are what seem to me to be quite good representations of gnomes and a changeling …

ARE THESE GNOMES?

THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?

From the size and bearing of the nature spirits shown above, it seems to me the John Bauer painted there what I call ‘gnomes’. Yet the painter calls them ‘trolls’.

I do see what I call ‘trolls’ in other paintings produced by John Bauer. These look rather like the nature spirits shown below, but are much larger … which are a good deal taller than a young man would be. Here is one such illustration of what I might call a ‘troll’ …

Image: “Here is a piece of a troll herb which nobody else can find,” by John Farmer, 1912, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:H%C3%A4r_ska_du_f%C3%A5_en_bit_av_en_troll%C3%B6rt,_som_ingen_mer_%C3%A4n_jag_kan_leta_r%C3%A4tt_p%C3%A5.jpg … public domain … DESCRIPTION: This is an illustration for “The Boy Who Was Never Afraid” by Alfred Smedberg, produced by John Bauer for “Among Gnomes and Trolls.”

CONCLUSION

From this I gather it may be that there is a relationship between gnomes and trolls, much in the way there is a relationship between the Lesser Dwarves and the Greater Dwarves.

Dad’s Boots . photos adapted by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 9 May 2021

Dear Ones,

Here are two adaptions of a photo I found touching. It has to do with fatherhood. Those are my Dad’s boots on the left, and me on the right, and he that held the camera.

If you look closely at the third photo, which is a ‘markup’, you can see a gnome on the ground, looking up at me. It looks like a friendly gnome, but serious, in the way of all the gnomes I have run across so far …

Jacaranda Tree Spirit Friendships . photos and markups by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 8 September 2020; published on 3 January 2022
Location: Los Angeles, California                                                                

Dear Ones,

These are photos and photo markups of a jacaranda tree and playful images drawn by the spirits of the jacaranda tree. It looks to me like the jacaranda tree spirit created these images out of fondness for some brownies and gnomes and elves that live in the forested back yard across the street, and also maybe for one man that may have lived nearby at one time …

Dear Ones,

Here are channeled talks from the Devic Realm … the nature spirits that care for birds and lizards, and the nature elementals of the air and Earth. There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have been talking to the Spirits of the Birds today, as I have been lately, for the last few weeks. I was up very early today, and I worked for a long time, and then, around sunrise, I went to sleep for an hour. And when I woke up, there were all kinds of little beings clustered around the top of my head, flying in the air. They were all saying: Don’t leave; don’t leave; don’t leave; don’t leave! … There are predators everywhere!

This has happened … I would say … a time or two before. I just took some time to figure out what was happening. I went outside to the front yard, where the jacaranda trees are. There were lots of birds in the trees. And everywhere where I heard bird song I could also hear a Spirit of the Bird talking to me.

They say that there are beings in the air that are predators, and that, when a person chants: Om Ma … it helps protect the Spirits of the Birds, which may be what they call the faeries that protect the birds …

Image: Faerie and Bird, by Sara Butcher, posted on 10 October 2011 … https://lovingcoastalliving.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/perchedatdawn.jpg ..

It helps protect them from these beings in the air … the predators in the air.

Then I thought I would go for a particular hike, but they did not like that idea. They wanted me to go for a hike where there were lots of birds. So here I am right now, on a trail with lots of birds amongst the chaparral. The Spirits of the Birds are talking to me again. And someone told me … on the psychic plane, he said: Try to talk to other types of beings too. Talk to other beings than the Spirits of the Air.

So I tried my old chant: Mother Earth loves me. And the Spirits of the Birds … the nature spirits that guard and protect the birds, I guess … were laughing. It was like ‘tittering’ … it was really sweet. And they said: Oh, those beings! We’re not supposed to talk to them!

And I said: Why? Why is that?

They said: We’re just not supposed to talk to them.

So I guess the Spirits of the Earth might be the brownies and the gnomes we have talked about before; and that the Spirits of the Air, the nature elementals of the air … the sylphs … and the faeries that associate with the birds and protect them … do not have much talking to do with the brownies and the gnomes that protect the things close to the surface of the Earth and just beneath it. And far beneath it are the dwarves.

I gather from the way that they felt about it, that they are not on hostile terms with the beings of the Earth … the ones that are summoned through the chant: Mother Earth loves me … but they just do not have much to do with them. They are a different sort of being. Now you know to chant: Om Ma for the Spirits of the Air and the faeries that protect the birds, and to chant Mother Earth loves me … for the brownies, the gnomes, and the dwarves that dwell far beneath the Earth.

When to Chant ‘Om Ma’ and When to Chant ‘Mother Earth Loves Me’

I was walking along, and I was told, just now, by the Spirits of the Birds, that the time to chant: Om Ma … is early in the morning … after sunrise, and before 10 am. As it is around 10 am now, they advised me to start chanting: Mother Earth loves me … They said: It’s not too late to chant that.

“If you start to get tired, go on back, or ‘Vekr’ will grab you and he won’t let go.”

I was just talking to the Spirits of the Air and the Faeries of the Birds … the nature spirits of the birds … and I was walking up a little hill on this nature path as I did so. And one of the Spirits of the Birds said to me: If you start to get tired, go on back, or ‘Vekr’ will grab you and he won’t let go.

And I got to thinking about this word ‘Vekr’, that I have been hearing for years now, from the nature realm. At first I thought it was a human being that I knew. And now I think I must have heard a very old-time name for the beings in the air that the nature spirits fear … ‘Vekr’ … so old that it is lost in the mists of history until now, and only just now has reappeared.

………………..
Sidebar: Are ‘Vekr’ the same as ‘Asuras’?

Maybe ‘Vekr’ are the power-seeking beings known in Ancient India as ‘Asuras’, which war against the beings of the Devic Realm.

There is purported to be another evil class of beings known as Rakshasas (which I take to be the red or black devils of Christian literature) that war against saints and Asuras are said to live underground (although, in my clair experience, they are sometimes chased through the air by the nature spirits, who laugh joyfully at causing the asuras to flee).

Legends say that Rakshasas live on or above the surface of the Earth (although, in my clair experience, the most evil of the Rakshasas seem to reside in the hellworlds found in the densest negative aspects of the astral plane, and on the physical plane, near the molten core of Earth).
………………..

The chant May the Animals Fall Asleep … I have spoken of it before …

Link: “Compendium: Songs to Make the Air Fall Asleep,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 14 July 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dC3

… is a good chant or song to sing, to eliminate the evil intentions of the animals of the air from our personal energy field. [Sings:] May the air fall asleep. May the animals fall asleep.

I tried ‘May the air fall asleep’ this morning, and the Spirits of the Birds said: Don’t sing that! We need to stay wide awake right now, because of the predators in the air.

So I suggest: May the animals fall asleep. But if you say that, then sometimes the birds start to fall asleep, or the rabbits start to fall asleep, or the squirrels start to fall asleep. It might be better to only say that in an emergency, when all ‘Hectorville’ … war … has broken loose on the psychic plane, and all the nature spirits are warring against all the beings they call ‘Vekr’.

Spirits of the Lizards

Image: “Santa Monica Mountains, Calabasas, California: Whiptail Lizard 1,” by Alice B. Clagett, 9 July 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0

[Video clip of what I take to be a whiptail lizard]

I was walking along the trail just now, and I saw a lizard. And it occurred to me that these beings so unfriendly to the Spirits of the Birds might be the spirits that associate with the lizards. What do you think? Lizards do war quite a lot, and their voice is very different from that of the birds.

Around this time of day the lizards are out more, because there is a lot of bright sunlight. The Earth warms up.

. . .

I was just talking with the Spirit of a Bird, and I asked it what the Spirit of a Lizard sounds like. Here is what I heard: The Spirit of the Bird said: They have a weird sound! They have a weird sound!

And I said: What kind of sound?

And they said: A ‘boodie tailer’ sound. They have a ‘boodie tailer’ sound … like that.

You know, I am thinking about the lizards, and I think they must relate more to fire than to Earth … somewhat to Earth, because they walk along it, but they love a warm day … so maybe both Fire and Earth for lizards.

But that is not true of the entire reptile kingdom [loosely speaking; technically reptiles constitute a ‘Class’ of beings] because we have snakes. And in this kind of place … here in California … snakes like to be out at night in the summertime, because it is so hot during the day.

[Video clip of what I take to be another whiptail lizard]

I was listening to a bird while I was looking at that lizard there, and the Spirit of the Bird said: It is faster than a bird, faster than a bird! It is faster than a bird!

Why Am I Hearing from the Spirits of the Birds Right Now?

I was walking along the path, and I asked the same Spirit of a Bird: Why is it that I’m hearing from the Spirits of the Birds right now?

And the Spirit said: Om Ma, Om Ma, Om Ma, Om Ma! That’s why you hear the Spirits of the Birds!

I was just talking to the same Spirit of a Bird, and I said: What kind of bird is that?

And it said: Thrasher, thrasher, thrasher. It’s that kind of bird.

Spirits of the Air and the Gentle Breeze of Early Morning

It is 10:30 am, and I was walking up the trail, chanting under my breath, to myself: Om Ma, Om Ma … with each step. And one of the Spirits to whom I have been talking said: Don’t chant that right now, because the Spirits of the Air aren’t there.

And I said: Where are they?

And it said: They’re asleep.

So I got to thinking that early in the morning there may be more of a breeze than at 10:30 am, and it may be easier for the Spirits of the Birds and the Spirits of the Air to talk?

This is all a mystery to me. And I expect you all to resolve it, because I may not ever be able to. Please let me know if you figure it out. I would really like to know.

Mid-Morning: Spirits of the Birds Chat with Spirits of the Lizards

I was about to stop talking, and I put my camcorder down, and then I heard one of the beings that I have been hearing say: Boodie holer, boodie holer, boodie holer!

And I said: Who is that? [meaning: Who is that speaking to me?]

And it said: The Spirit of the Bird!

And I said: I thought that those beings were asleep right now.

And it said: The Spirits of the Air! We like the Spirits of the Air!

So after the Spirits of the Air depart, when the air is very calm, then it seems … now I know … that the Spirits of the Birds will chat along with the Spirits of the Lizards … of which [lizards] there are various kinds here on the trail today.

Early morning, it seems, is a good time to take a look for lizards, here in Southern California.

………………..
Sidebar: How Birds, Reptiles, and Amphibians Express Joy in Mating

As to the terms ‘boodie tailer’ and ‘boodie holer’, I wonder if these may have to do with the posterior orifice of all birds, reptiles, and amphibians that is known as a ‘cloaca’. This unique orifice allows urine and feces to pass from the body. It also serves as reproductive opening.

Thus the terms ‘boodie’ might refer to the anatomy of birds, reptiles, and amphibians. In that regard this term may be a joyful descriptive conferred by the Spirits of the Birds on all three sorts of beings.

Just possibly, the term ‘boodie tailer’ might refer to lizards, or maybe the Spirits of the Lizards; and the term ‘boodie holer’ might refer to birds, or maybe the Spirits of the Birds.
