  • 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’ …

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.

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

PIXIES IN THE WOODS

This video is just for fun, as the gentleman is in animatronics …

Still, it is quite a bit of fun, and it is nice that the gentleman is introducing people to the world of nature spirits.

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

Filmed on 13 January 2021; published on 22 January 2021

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
    • Drawing by Alice

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 …

VIDEO BY ALICE

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.]

Dear Ones,

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. In the below excerpt, I have bolded what seemed more important from my own perspective …

Trolls 2: The Troll Under the Bridge . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 13 August 2019; published on 6 January 2020
Location: Trippet Ranch, Topanga State Park, Santa Monica Mountains, Topanga, California

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

This video is about a small troll I may have seen under a little bridge. I am not 100% on this one … Do you think it may be true?

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, This is Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I am here by this bridge …

Image: “Small Bridge at Trippet Ranch,” by Alice B. Clagett, 13 August 2019, CC BY-SA 4.0

… and I did ask about trolls. It would be a larger troll here, if there were one. And then I did not hear anything at all. Then from a far distance I heard a gnome say, in that ‘gnome voice’ (which is hard to explain): Yes, there is a troll there.

First I was over here …

… and I asked about the troll. I did not hear anything at all. In fact, there was remarkable silence. And then I saw something in the astral air come out from right about here … [zooms to bottom left of cinderblock wall].

It was about three feet tall and thin. It looked out towards me from right underneath the bridge there, and up in this direction … [zooms to near top left of cinderblock wall].  Its head was right about there … [zooms to row of cinderblocks second from the top of the wall].

Then I listened. The first thing I heard was the gnome, from a far distance, in an agitated voice, saying to me: There is nothing under the bridge, Alice! There is nothing under the bridge!

Then I did a timeline rollback and I heard a menacing voice … a little like the voice of Gollum in the Tolkien series. It was saying, over and over again [in a mean whispery voice]: Your life is worth nothing, little gnome! Your life is worth nothing, little gnome!

And over that, the protests of the gnome were just as I have said. So there is something under here … something pretty quiet … something not too friendly … something that really likes to lean against the underneath sides of things that look like bridges.

There is the bridge from another perspective …

And you can see that it is in Trippet Ranch … [zooms in to brown park sign].

I wonder what kind of troll would be under a very large bridge. But hereabouts there are no large bridges that I know of.

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

Trolls 1: A Baby Troll Under the Picnic Table? . channeled by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 13 August 2019; published on 6 January 2020
Location: Trippet Ranch, Topanga State Park, Santa Monica Mountains, Topanga, California

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones, I have only half confidence in this troll tale; it might be true, from the perspective of nature spirit lore, or maybe not. What do you think?

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 am over here at Trippet Ranch park. There is this big picnic area … [show 6 wooden picnic tables under oak trees]. I was thinking about brownies and gnomes, and I said: Is there anyone under those picnic tables? And I heard, in a tiny little voice, like that of a pixie or a faerie: There are trolls under those tables.

This was very upsetting to me. I know very little about trolls, and what little I do know is that they are likely to be found under bridges, not picnic tables.

So I had a feeling of disbelief. And at that moment the cute little voice disappeared. I guess it is trolls, because the voice said something like this first … It said: What are those? Oh, those are trolls!

So now I am wondering what will happen if I sit down at a picnic table and put my feet in the middle there. I mean, what do trolls do? Could it possibly be that there are trolls that small? I thought they were pretty big … maybe these are young trolls … [walks up to picnic table] …

I advise caution when sitting at woodland picnic tables until we get this straightened out … [zooms to place under a picnic table].

All right, further to the troll channeling, I heard, in a tiny little voice … and this is odd (I do not know this word): Vek would say they like to lean up against things. And there is something to lean up against … [hand gesture of disconcertedness, and a sigh].
