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 …

THEOSOPHIST C.W. LEADBEATER ON NATURE SPIRITS

3. Nature-Spirits of all Kinds.

“So many and so varied are the subdivisions of this class that to do them anything like justice one would need to devote a separate treatise to this subject alone. Some characteristics, however, they all have in common, and it will be sufficient here to try to give some idea of those.

“To begin with, we have to realize that we are here dealing with entities which differ radically from all that we have hitherto considered.

“Though we may rightly classify the elemental essence and the animal Kâmarûpa as non-human, the monadic essence which manifests itself through them will, nevertheless, in the fullness of time, evolve to the level of manifesting itself through some future humanity comparable to our own, and if we were able to look back through countless ages on our own evolution in previous manvantaras, we should find that that which is now ourselves has passed on its upward path through similar stages.

“That, however, is not the case with the vast kingdom of nature-spirits; they neither have been, nor ever will be, members of a humanity such as ours; their line of evolution is entirely different, and their [p. 58] only connection with us consists in our temporary occupancy of the same planet.

“Of course since we are neighbours for the time being we owe neighbourly kindness to one another when we happen to meet, but our lines of development differ so widely that each can do but little for the other.

“Many writers have included these spirits among the elementals, and indeed they are the elementals (or perhaps, to speak more accurately, the animals) of a higher evolution.

“Though much more highly developed than our elemental essence, they have yet certain characteristics in common with it; for example, they also are divided into seven great classes, inhabiting respectively the same seven states of matter already mentioned as permeated by the corresponding varieties of the essence.

“Thus, to take those which are most readily comprehensible to us, there are spirits of the earth, water, air, and fire (or ether)—definite intelligent astral entities residing and functioning in each of those media.

“It may be asked how it is possible for any kind of creature to inhabit the solid substance of a rock, or of the crust of the earth. The answer is that since the nature-spirits are formed of astral matter, the substance of the rock is no hindrance to their motion or their vision, and furthermore physical matter in its solid state is their natural element—the only one to which they are accustomed and in which they feel at home.

“The same is of course true of those who live in water, air or ether. In medieval literature, these earth-spirits are often called gnomes, while the water-spirits are spoken of as ûndinés, the air-spirits as sylphs, and the ether-spirits as salamanders.

“In popular language they are known by many names—fairies, pixies, elves, brownies, peris, djinns [jinns], trolls, satyrs, fauns, kobolds, imps, goblins, good people, etc.—some of these titles being applied only to one variety … [p 59] and others indiscriminately to all.

Their forms are many and various, but most frequently human in shape and somewhat diminutive in size. Like almost all inhabitants of the astral plane, they are able to assume any appearance at will, but they undoubtedly have definite forms of their own, or perhaps we should rather say favourite forms, which they wear when they have no special object in taking any other. Of course under ordinary conditions they are not visible to physical sight at all, but they have the power of making themselves so by materialization when they wish to be seen.

“There are an immense number of subdivisions or races among them, and individuals of these subdivisions differ in intelligence and disposition precisely as human beings do.

“The great majority of them apparently prefer to avoid man altogether; his habits and emanations are distasteful to them, and the constant rush of astral currents set up by his restless, ill-regulated desires disturbs and annoys them.

“On the other hand instances are not wanting in which nature-spirits have as it were made friends with human beings and offered them such assistance as lay in their power, as in the well-known stories told of the Scotch brownies or of the fire-lighting fairies mentioned in spiritualistic literature.

“This helpful attitude, however, is comparatively rare, and in most cases when they come in contact with man they either show indifference or dislike, or else take an impish delight in deceiving him and playing childish tricks upon him.

“Many a story illustrative of this curious characteristic may be found among the village gossip of the peasantry in almost any lonely mountainous district, and any one who has been in the habit of attending séances for physical phenomena will recollect instances of practical joking and silly though usually good-natured horseplay, which always indicate the presence of … [p 60] some of the lower orders of the nature-spirits.

“They are greatly assisted in their tricks by the wonderful power which they possess of casting a glamour over [that is, hypnosis or mesmerization of] those who yield themselves to their influence, so that such victims for the time see and hear only what these fairies impress upon them, exactly as the mesmerized subject sees, hears, feels and believes whatever the magnetizer wishes.

“The nature-spirits, however, have not the mesmerizer’s power of dominating the human will, except in the case of quite unusually weak-minded people, or of those who allow themselves to fall into such a condition of helpless terror that their will is temporarily in abeyance; they cannot go beyond deception of the senses, but of that art they are undoubted masters, and cases are not wanting in which they have cast their glamour over a considerable number of people at once. It is by invoking their aid in the exercise of this peculiar power that some of the most wonderful feats of the Indian jugglers are performed—the entire audience being in fact hallucinated and made to imagine that they see and hear a whole series of events which have not really taken place at all.

“We might almost look upon the nature-spirits as a kind of astral humanity, but for the fact that none of them—not even the highest possess a permanent reincarnating individuality.

“Apparently therefore one point in which their line of evolution differs from ours is that a much greater proportion of intelligence is developed before permanent individualization takes place; but of the stages through which they have passed, and those through which they have yet to pass, we can know little.

“The life-periods of the different subdivisions vary greatly, some being quite short, others much longer than our human lifetime. We stand so entirely outside such a life as theirs that it is impossible for us to understand much about its conditions; but it appears on … [p 61] the whole to be a simple, joyous, irresponsible kind of existence, much such as a party of happy children might lead among exceptionally favourable physical surroundings.

“Though tricky and mischievous, they are rarely malicious unless provoked by some unwarrantable intrusion or annoyance; but as a body they also partake to some extent of the universal feeling of distrust for man, and they generally seem inclined to resent somewhat the first appearance of a neophyte on the astral plane, so that he usually makes their acquaintance under some unpleasant or terrifying form. If, however, he declines to be frightened by any of their freaks, they soon accept him as a necessary evil and take no further notice of him, while some among them may even after a time become friendly and manifest pleasure on meeting him.

Some among the many subdivisions of this class are much less childlike and more dignified than those we have been describing, and it is from these sections that the entities who have sometimes been reverenced under the name of wood-gods, or local village-gods, have been drawn. Such entities would be quite sensible of the flattery involved in the reverence shown to them, would enjoy it, and would no doubt be quite ready to do any small service they could in return. (The village-god is also often an artificial entity, but that variety will be considered in its appropriate place.)

The Adept knows how to make use of the services of the nature-spirits when he requires them, but the ordinary magician can obtain their assistance only by processes either of invocation or evocation—that is, either by attracting their attention as a suppliant and making some kind of bargain with them, or by endeavouring to set in motion influences which would compel their obedience.

“Both methods are extremely undesirable, and the latter is also excessively dangerous, as the operator would arouse a determined hostility … [p 62] which might prove fatal to him. Needless to say, no one studying occultism under a qualified Master would ever be permitted to attempt anything of the kind at all.”

THEOSOPHIST ARTHUR E. POWELL’S COMPILATION ON THE NATURE SPIRITS

There is more comprehensive information regarding astral entities, drawn mostly from the above source, in this book, a compilation by Arthur Powell from the School of Theosophy …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … “Chapter XX: Astral Entities: Non-Human,” section “3. Nature Spirits of All Kinds,” pp. 179-184.

However, the book is under copyright, so I cannot offer quotes here. I suggest reading the chapter. See especially the description of the sylphs as having human-like intelligence. Apparently, they can individualize through loving the astral angels.

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

Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the photo series: Faerie Homes. I also recently published a blog on Elf Homes …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Homes,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 6 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dRR ..

As can be seen from the photos below, faeries love flowers.

Like the elves, faeries like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both faeries and elves like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Here is more about faeries and elves, but not to do with today’s photos …

Faeries and elves love the creatures of the forest … deer and foxes, skunks and badgers and porcupines, chipmunks and squirrels, for instance. Also, the less assuming creatures of the forest, such as pack rats and mice, and bats, toads and frogs.

Faeries, in particular, love birds of all sorts. Also, and especially, they love bears, as bears are good to ride upon, and fun to tickle on the ears. You are more likely to find elves near a sleeping bear, unless they feel especially mischievous (which, when I come to think of it, is quite frequently the case).

As is well known by those who delight in the company of nature spirits, both faeries and elves like damselflies and dragonflies. Catching a glimpse of the flittering wings of these latter beings often signifies the nearby presence of elves or faeries.

Nature Spirits Photo Series: Elf Homes . by Alice B. Clagett *

Filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 6 August 2019

Dear Ones,

In recent months I have been a little more in contact with the nature spirits I call elves, faeries, brownies,  and gnomes.

Here is the fourth of four elf photo collections in a photo series: Elf Homes. The other three elf photo collections, which appear in other blogs, are: Elf Energy, Singles Collection; Elf Energy, Diptych Collection; and Elf Energy: Triptych Collection …

I have also published a blog on Faerie Homes …

Link: “Nature Spirits Photo Series: Faerie Homes,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 27 April 2019; published on 7 August 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-dT3 ..

As can be seen from the photos below, elves like trees and forests, forest glades, the brooks that meander through meadows and woodland, and the little ponds that the brooks make there. Mostly, elves leave flowers to the faeries, but they love the flowers of trees, and they like plants whose flowers are quite small or else green, and ferns, which have no flowers.

Like the faeries, elves like sunlight that is speckled or hazy or dappled; rainbow-colored flecks and sprinkles of sunlight; and the soft colors of the sky at dawn and just after sunset. Both elves and faeries like nights when the moon is bright and many stars are sparkling in the sky; at least, it is easy to see them on those sorts of nights!

Children’s Story: Faeries and Woodrat Nests . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed and published on 31 January 2015; revised and republished on 11 December 2017

  • VIDEO BY ALICE
  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

A story about faeries, woodrats, and a gift for a tree faerie. A Summary follows the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I found a spot under a tree, with a beautiful view, and a woodrat nest, on top of a circular pile of stones. And next to the nest, on the other side, was a very old tree with plenty of leaves.

And I spoke to the faeries there. They were very particular faeries, and they said: If you’d like to give us a marble, we’d like a clean marble. Don’t put it down low. Try to put it up high.

And then they sounded a little perturbed. They said: Not where the woodrats can get to it!

So I said: Ok! And I looked around all over this tree, and finally, I found a place right here …

Faeries and the Book of Songs of Humankind . by Alice B. Clagett

Mountains in the background. A stream flowing by. Tiny faeries flying out of a hollow log.

Dear Ones,

As you may know, faeries keep the Book of Songs of Humankind. This is one of their greatest joys. So, if you really want to give the faeries a gift of joy, go out to a wild place … under a tree … next to a flower … in a meadow … or like that, and sing your own favorite song to them …

More than anything, they like a tune you composed yourself. One that is not in their Book yet. They teach it to each other … with immense joy … in the space of a minute or so. And so, Faeries all over the world will always remember the Song that is special to you.

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

Dear Ones,

HOW NATURE SPIRITS TAKE CARE OF HUMAN BEINGS

Nature spirits are responsible for the health of every living thing. For simple living things, care by one nature spirit might suffice. For more complicated beings, such as human beings, many nature spirits may be assigned by the ruling deva (see section below on devas).

HOW WE CAN CARE FOR OUR NATURE SPIRITS

When we feel a little under the weather physically, a little out of sorts, we can be sure that our thought patterns, our typical emotions, and our daily routine do not support the happiness of the nature spirits assigned to our physical health.

There are many things we can do to care for our nature spirits. First, of course, is simply to acknowledge the help they steadfastly give us. We can simply thank them, each day, from our hearts.

We can light a little candle every morning and evening, and remember their tiny, beautiful, bright lights surrounding us.

As the day goes on, we can sing them a little song or play them a little tune … there is nothing they love like music, and they are ever so happy to sing along with us!

We can offer them pleasant scents in our home, as by burning sage or juniper incense. They love these delightful natural odors.

Planting and caring for living plants in our homes, and planting and tending plants, trees and flowers around our homes … these are wonderful ways to please them.

We can go for a walk in a quiet, natural place, and then sit for a while in the shade of a tree, to allow Earth herself to purify our bodies, minds and emotions.

My nature spirits get so very happy and excited when I do this! It makes me very happy, just listening to their delightful voices!

DEVAS

Image: Deva of a pool: “Paradise Goddess,” by William Gilbert … http://iasos.com/artists/gilwilms/paradisegds.jpg ..

A deva is a wise elder nature spirit with many responsibilities. Chief among these is the responsibility to care for our Mother Earth.

DEVIC COUNCIL

There is a Devic Council that guides all Devic actions so as to best nourish and sustain our beautiful Planet.

For a long time now, and rightfully so, the Devic Council and all devas have been at odds with humankind, because of our misuse of this beautiful Planet Earth. For thousands of years now, our actions as a people have been in direct opposition to the prime directive of all devas, that being to care for the well-being of Planet Earth.

Some long while ago, the Devic Council issued the Devic Accord placing limits on the interactions of the beings of the Devic World with human beings. Because of that Accord, most human beings today do not even know that the Devas and the nature spirits exist. The nature spirits of the cities of Earth, in obedience to the edict of their greatly esteemed and deeply loved, very wise Devas, will not speak with human beings at all, except for little children, whose innocence appeals to them.

FOREST DEVAS HAVE ASKED THEIR NATURE SPIRITS TO STEER CLEAR OF HUMANS

As part of the Devic Accord, the devas of the forests of Earth have asked all the nature spirits in their charge to steer clear of humans entering these sanctuaries. The devas do this to protect the nature spirits in their charge, and to protect that region of Earth for which they are responsible.

The nature spirits themselves, as a collective consciousness, understand the dilemma, and do their best to comply with the instruction of their devas, who invariably are greatly loved and looked up to by the nature spirits they wisely supervise.

I wish the situation were otherwise, I wish humans and the nature spirit world were on friendly terms, but the situation at this moment cannot, from the devic standpoint, be one of cooperation with us. It is one of protecting Earth, insofar as possible, from further damage.

HOW WE CAN HELP THE DEVAS: THOUGHTS FOR THE FUTURE OF EARTH

Devas are not able to live in the big cities any more; the atmosphere there simply will not support them. Consequently, they are not able to supervise the work of the nature spirits there.

In the big cities, nature spirits are few and far between right now. As a result, the health of humans, animals, and green living beings suffers.

We can make big cities visitable (though perhaps not pleasantly habitable) for devas by pleasing our own personal nature spirits, by providing more parks and green spaces, and by creating large green corridors from the surrounding countryside into the deepest heart of the downtown areas of big cities.

Soon now, we humans will begin to realize the importance of nature spirits and devas in regard to our own well-being. The long-term solution to our happiness and theirs will, I feel, be a gradual movement from city life to sustainable small community life for all humans on Earth.

I cannot begin to express the importance of such expanding human Awareness and the taking of steps to accomplish a greater alliance between the nature spirit world (which is destined to rise to 6D) and the world of humankind (now more and more perceived as 5D, in our increasing Awareness as a collective consciousness).

HOW WE CAN HELP THE DEVAS IN SMALL WAYS

I am just now beginning to understand that the state of 3D Earth for all these thousands of years has caused great damage to the devic realm as well as to humankind.

The lifetime of a deva is long, compared to that of a human, and so each deva, personally, has many painful memories of human misuse of Earth’s resources. There is deep trauma in the devic world.

Please understand that, without the devas, this world cannot survive. The devas of Earth do not need to be on this planet. They choose to be on this planet, in their love for her.

Please pray for their return to a happiness and health. Visualize them happy and healthy, supervising their domains in peaceful tranquility. Sing songs of thanks to them, remember them as you go about your day, make every action of your day mindful and thankful. And most of all, treat our Planet Earth with deepest respect!

With heartfelt thanks to our Mother Earth, and to her faithful servants,

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

A Blessing for the Devic Realm . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 18 February 2014
Previously entitles: “Free the Faeries” by Alice …

Dear Ones,

Let’s offer a blessing through the Divine, that all the nature spirits, elves, and faeries, all the elementals of earth, water, wind, and fire, be freed from spells of black magic and captivity. May they be free to follow their own hearts, and to do the essential, blessed work they do in the world,

Blessings to the Devas of Earth, those wise beings who oversee the work of all the nature spirits, who tend to the Earth and keep her safe and healthy. May they do their work in peace, free of interference from the dark.

Blessings to the spirits of the trees, those wise old guardians of the forests, of the leafy shrubs, the grasses, and of all the plant world round them.

May the natural order be restored!
Blessed be, and blessings to each and every one of thee!

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

Here’s a great blog about working with nature spirits …

It includes what happens when we try to enslave them to black magic … Duhville, dudes and dudesses! … Attacked by bees, yet! …

And just to keep in mind, nature spirits love bears! And the feeling may be reciprocal …

And then, there are skunks and ants and like that, all very good friends of nature fairies …

  • And also, apparently, Ethers

Wind: I bid thee blow! The Wind blows when it wants to. It is very strong-willed and independent.

Water: I bid thee flow! The sound of water elementals is like the sound of the Wind, but sweet, like a river flowing on a summer day.

They told me just now: They do not like to feel like sluice water in the summertime … Their deva told them to wait till wintertime on that.

Well … I was walking over a sluice at the time, so I said: Aren’t you in the sluice water now?

And they said: We avoid the sluice water in the summertime. If we didn’t, it would affect the winds.

Fire, I bid thee glow! And when Fire speaks to me … the fire elemental … it sounds like a sizzle! The very sizzle that’s affecting the transformation on Earth right now.

And so I asked: Is it you … the elementals of Fire … that are doing this thing?

And they said: Yes! ‘Tis we! ‘Tis we who affect this change!

Earth: We don’t talk that much! So then I thought: I’ll speak with Earth … I’ll speak with the elementals of Earth!

I was standing right here! …

Right by the Water.
Right by the Sun.
Standing in the Wind,
and talking to the Earth.

And the Earth said: We don’t talk that much! [speaking low and slow]

So I waited … and the Earth elementals said again …

We don’t talk that much! [speaking low and slow]

So I said: Oh, I see!

Ethers: Can you hear us? So then I thought: Are there not elementals of the Ethers too?

And I asked the Wind, and the Water, and the Sun, and the Earth to try and help me hear the elementals of the Ethers talk.

And in a very, very high tone … so high you almost can’t hear it … I heard …

Can you hear us? [spoken in a very high tone]

Higher than that. And I said, Yes.

And they said: Until you can hear us, you can’t hear any ethers!

And I said: Oh, I see!

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

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about overcoming fear of being in the woods in the dark. I went camping overnight at Mesa Verde National Park; was feeling pretty tenuous about the whole thing …  It worked out fine! That night I encountered some nature spirits and had a talk with a deva as well.  I also had a chance to view the ‘Supermoon’ in the early morning hours!

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am out here in Mesa Verde National Park, today. It is Friday night, and I have an idea that I might try camping out. I have to say that I have not camped out in a long time. And I have a few trepidations, a few fears about it. Let me show you my setup here: [shows campsite].

About My Camp Site

So I found this shady spot, with a picnic table, and a barbecue, and then I found out that I did not bring my tent along. But fortunately, I did bring along one of those screen tents. And I have a plan, because it is the monsoon season right now. And it rained like all get-out last night. So I have this big tarp down here [under the screen tent], and my idea is, if it rains tonight, I will pull the tarp out from underneath the pins (tent pegs) there, and put it over top of the screen tent there, and then pin it on the other side. That is a makeshift plan for sure, but that is the best I could do right now.

And luckily, this place is just full of nature spirits. And I feel very safe here. And there are families on either side; there is a tent over there [to one side of my site], and then coming around to the other side, there is a beautiful dwarf oak grove, and a nice family on the other side. So I am pretty safe here.

The folks that I follow regarding ascension are saying that one of the most pleasant experiences right now is to be camping out in the relative wilderness. Sometimes people suggest a National Forest, but I am a little too chicken for that. So I am trying a regular campground.

There are bears here, but  hear they are fairly friendly bears. Only, you have to keep all your food and water in the car. And they do not have that Yellowstone trick of ripping open your car here yet, fortunately. So I hear it is probably going to be a pleasant night.

And it is the night of the supermoon too; the first of three this summer; around 5:30 in the morning I should see the supermoon, if I am awake.

Stories by Alice: About Fear of Camping Outdoors as a Child

I thought I would tell you a story about my fears of camping out. It has to do with when I was about … oh, maybe 12 years old. And I had this fear of the forest. And the funny thing is, my family lived right on the edge of a forest, a long, long way from other people.

Stories by Alice: The ‘Phantom’ Dog at Twilight. And one time when I was young, I had seen, next to the pigeon house … which I had to go down and close up at night, so that the hawks and weasels could not get in … I saw a ‘phantom’ dog come out of the forest. It seemed like a German shepherd or maybe a wolf … It was scary to me, for some reason. And ever since then, I had a fear of the forest at night.

When I was 12, I decided to face this fear. And I convinced my little brother, my very younger brother, at that time, to go out and sleep on cots with me in the woods, right near the house at night. Right?

And so, all was fine, We had our blankets and our pillows, and we were within sight of the house. But I had never slept outside before (except in a group camping situation with the Brownies). So, I feel asleep. And he fell asleep.

An undetermined amount of time later I woke up. And I thought I heard a wild animal getting closer and closer, snuffling and carrying on in the dark. I was paralyzed with fear. [laughs] I hate to tell this story, even though it is so many years later: I just lay there, paralyzed, for a long time.

It seemed like the sound was getting louder and louder. Finally, I summoned all my courage, and I opened my eyes, and I looked around me, and I found out that it was my little brother, snoring. [laughs] But I was so terrified that I woke him up … and it was not that easy to wake him up … And I convinced him to go back in the house. And I had to invent an excuse for my mother! So, altogether not that pleasant of an experience.

Stories by Alice: Conquering My Fear of Camping Out in Early Adulthood: The Yellowstone Park Vigil, Part 2

So then, I was still frightened of the woods at night. So then, I waited till I was in my 20s. And at that time, three terrible things happened to me, all at the same time. It was almost as if the world were ending. It was one of those turning points in a person’s life.

And in my young life, I had seen no precedent. So, I lost my job; it was a great job; one of my first. And I lost my prospect of a boyfriend, and that was very important to me at that time, because of the emotional turmoil around my divorce. And I learned that my father had a terminal illness.

And then I went to Yellowstone Park. [laughs] Then I thought: It is time to finally conquer this fear that I have; there i’s no reason to have this terrible fear; right? I do not like having fears; do you?

So that night I camped out in a campground a little like this one, and I remember I had nothing but my sleeping bag on the ground. And I lay awake all night long, waiting for whatever it was to happen. [laughs] And when the morning light came, I was still alive. And all was well.

And so, I am hoping that experience will carry over to tonight, and will protect me. I have called upon the devic realm. And I see the devic spirits, the nature spirits, glittering through the oak leaves here. It is terrific. And so, I hope I have the courage to stay here, because I have heard it is one of the best places to be right now. And I will let you know later whether or not I succeed …

So, the night went just great. About an hour into the night, there was a rainstorm. And what do you know … the tarp worked just great as a rain fly. And there were no incidents whatsoever during the night. It was very quiet here. And for the first time in a long time, I had untroubled sleep.

On Encounters with Nature Spirits and a Deva That Night

I could see the nature spirits, like little bright lights winking inside of my screen tent. It was great! And they were talking to me; it was really cool. They are so sweet! They are incredible.

And I talked for a while with a deva. You know the devas are not too happy with human beings right now, because of the way we have treated the Earth. And the Earth is their special responsibility. And I really understand their point of view.

As far as Ascension is concerned, the devas have their healing work to do too. And a few prayers for them might be a good idea. So that is what I did last night: I wished them the very best: Perfect healing for all the wonderful work they do, and for their wisdom, their care of Earth, their kindness to all the nature spirits they instruct and guide.

I had a wonderful night, really. When I woke up this morning at 5 am, everything was so quiet! It was terrific. So I will show you just a little bit of the scene. I will sign off. I would just like you to know, Mesa Verde is a really special place. Really special, really blessed. And for people that reach a certain age, according to the Forest Service, it is $10 for a lifetime pass, and then you get half off on your camping, which is cheap in the first place. The people who camp here, and the rangers, are very nice. So! A very successful camping experience.

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

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I just happen to be over on this street in Pagosa Hot Springs today, and I noticed the music coming from across the street. [Shows street and music store.] And so there I looked. Live music! And it is called the music shop, right? This music is nonstop over here … It is kind of happy music. Nice, huh?

Then I went indoors, away from the traffic, and I could hear nature spirits talking to me. They were so excited! They were dancing and singing the same songs I had heard outside. It was really cool. And so then I got the connection, you know? They are hanging out here because of the music.

Then I was walking over this way, and I saw this tree. [Shows side of building, and tree beside the building.] The leaves were shimmering in the wind at the time. And it seemed to me like there were fairies and nature spirits everywhere … all over this tree. So cool! The ground was shimmering; the tree was shimmering; everything, just beautiful!

Then I said to myself: I will go get my camcorder and take a picture of these fairies! 

To which they replied: Oh, no! We don’t like that!

And all in a flash, each and every one of them lit out to the hinterlands … specifically, to the beautiful pine forest on the mountain behind the tree.

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I got some interesting information this morning from the faerie world … from the nature spirits … what we used to call the ‘fourth dimension’, that is ascending into the sixth dimension now. And I thought I would tell you the quick story of it, even though I am late for being someplace else, because when I get important information, unless I convey it immediately, sometimes I forget; in fact, quite frequently.

So I will try to explain this. You know, it is kind of revolutionary information, so I do not really expect you to believe it. But there may come a time when it becomes true in your life, and then maybe it will be useful to you.

Lately I have been talking some to the nature spirits. They are really beautiful, happy beings. I encounter them when I am out in nature … in a place like this beautiful place here. [Shows hillside wooded with tall evergreens. The location is Pagosa Hot Springs.] And sometimes at other times; but mostly out in nature.

And I found out a few things about them … like, they like to receive gifts. Right?

And so, yesterday or the day before, the nature spirits and I were discussing the kind of food they would like for an offering … because, on the internet, I saw that they liked milk. But come to find out, they like fresh-squeezed milk from a cow’s udder. And this is completely beyond my grasp to do that. I heard from the nature spirits, that in Ireland they are doing it. They are still milking cows, and giving a squirt from the cow to the nature spirits.

This is what they told me, and I expect it is true, because nature spirits never lie. They are really straightforward, happy beings of light … really a joy to be around.

And so, but anyway, I could not come up with any good food. So I went to the dollar store, and I bought some beautiful marbles … cat’s eye marbles, right? … all different colors. There were some white ones mixed in. They did not like the milky white ones, but they love the kind that catch the sunlight. And in addition, there was one large marble in each bag. I bought two bags. And those huge marbles, I made sure that they would be good for the devas … the devas, that supervise the wonderful work that the nature spirits do.

And so then, when I would go for my walks, I would try to find a place to put a marble so that it will catch the sunlight, and it will not be dislodged by the winter snows. And under specific instructions from the faeries and elves and like that … to make sure that it is so high that a child cannot see it and take it away. [laughs]

And so, that is what I have been doing every once in a while. And they like it when I hide them, so that they have to go back and find them later. The truth of the matter is, they know exactly where I put them, because they know every single tree. But they pretend, for my sake, that they do not know where they are. And then, as soon as I go away, they go and find them all. And sometimes they go back and find them again. [laughs]

So there is that. I have been having incredible fun with this. You have to learn to talk with them first, to find out exactly what they want. though, because they are very specific. And one of the things they love, I have found, are songs about the Earth. If you are willing to sing songs about the Earth, you had better believe that you will make friends with the natural world.

And so, I found out that there is a group of Medicine Songs by Sacred Valley Tribe …

Link: “Medicine Songs,” by Sacred Valley Tribe …  http://sacredvalleytribe.com/medicine-songs/ … medicine songs in Spanish, English, and other languages!

And so all the nature spirits, all in the wink of an eye, went down to Peru to find the man, Alonso del Rio, that wrote the song “Madre Tierra,” and have him sing it to them …

Video: “Madre Tierra / Alonso del Rio,” by Marcio Assumpcao, 26 January 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozx16OBKtNs .. 

And so, these are a few of the things that have been happening lately. It is terrific! And so, as I mentioned yesterday, I was out here, near a music shop, and there were faeries just all over a tree. It was just glittering with beautiful nature spirits. And all of the Earth round it listening to the song the singer was singing live, outside the shop … even though there were cars passing by. They loved it! They hang out in this area here quite a lot, because of that music store. [shows hillside with tall evergreens, in Pagosa Hot Springs]

So then, I was heading off to a Krishna Das Concert … [continued here] …

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

Here is the third of five videos on the nature spirits, the faeries, and the Devic Realm.

This video is about the relationship of faeries to animals and insects. There is also a little about visits by the Buddha, Shri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj ji (2), and the angelic realm to a Krishna Das concert (3) held at Tara Mandala Retreat Center (4) in the outskirts of Pagosa Hot Springs, Colorado.

There’s a typo in one of the captions for this video: It says “Krishna Das:  http://www.krishnadas.com/ ” and it ought to say “Krishna das: http://krishnadas.com/

There is an edited Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I was heading off to a Krishna Das Concert (3) out at the Buddhist Retreat Center near here (4), and I was travelling with a couple of friends. The nature spirits were talking to each other. The couple were completely absorbed in talking with each other, so the nature spirits started up, right? And when it came time to … I do not know if I should tell you this …

But see, the nature spirits are friends with all the animals and insects. They like to play with them. They love them very much … even bears. I have talked with them about bears. I am not totally partial to bears, but they say that bears are their friends, and bears are just wonderful, and they just love bears. I am revising my opinions about all animals, because they love them so much.

We were sitting in the car … to avoid the mosquitoes … eating our dinner. Outside was a beautiful scene at the Buddhist Retreat Center, of flowers and wilderness. And the faeries were talking to me. They were so happy to be there! And the people there saw what is known as a ‘hummingbird moth’ by one of the flowers. And they loved it so much! … The faeries brought in about six of them, all at once … The place was just full of hummingbird moths. It was great!

Anyway, I want to come back to today, ok? … because the concert was great; it was terrific. There were all kinds of beings of Light and love there. And the people were all so enthralled with higher consciousness, it was really wonderful.

There was quite a lot of clairaudient chatter for me the whole time. And with different entities … with humans …

The nature spirits were standing far off from the building. They said: We don’t go where people go!

I have to agree, it is just not the kind of thing for them. You know?

So then, going back to the concert, let’s see, who was carrying on there? There were people [on the astral plane]. Some ascended masters stopped in … Maharaj Ji, briefly (2) … I do not know if you know him. He is one of Krishna Das’s favorites. The Buddha blessed us with a little rocket shower of golden Light, three times, right before the concert began. And angels came in; the angels were wonderful.  It was a very high evening.

After the concert, as I came back to the place where I stayed tonight, there was some discordant clairaudient chatter … [continued below]

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

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

After the concert, as I came back to this place where I stayed tonight, there was some discordant clairaudient chatter, which started up again this morning … possibly because of the high energy of the concert, or maybe just because yesterday was the Gateway … the huge Lion’s Gateway … and the beginning of the Mayan calendar year, and a New Moon, and a chance for both us and the nature kingdom to step into a totally different reality, I think.

A door opened last night. And this morning, something became clear, as is often the case in the early morning. I hope to explain it adequately to you, so that, in future, if you need it, this knowledge … this information … will be there for you.

The Age of Atlantis

There is an issue that has been going around. I think it is called Patriarchal Domination … that is, for me, a clairaudient issue. But for others, that are clair in other ways, I expect it has expressed itself otherwise.

But for me, what it seemed like was … As you know, we have been in the Age of Atlantis, and before that was the Age of Lemuria. Lemuria was pretty easygoing, and more feminine in character, both for men and for women.

And Atlantis is a very left-brain, domineering kind of society, where the many talents and skills of women … the special skills of women … are not venerated, and in fact, denigrated. ‘Denigrated’ means ‘torn down, and sullied with Darkness’.

Diminishment of Women. Just as an example, so that you will understand: There was a time on Earth when women were the mainstay of society, and the notion of nurturing children, bearing children; of crops coming up on the land and feeding people, were all bound up together in the notion of the ‘Sacred Feminine’ … the dignity and worth of women. Women were respected then, and honored.

Women as Objects Rather Than Ensouled Beings. As the Atlantean Age has progressed to its utter, lowest point, women have been torn down to just being sex symbols.

And the most obvious representation of this in today’s society, is the role that women play in the mass media: on television, on billboards, in movies; and also in the fashions that are in the stores … which are too flimsy for my taste, and far too skimpy, too see-through …

Clothing Fashions Make It Appear That People Are Darkly Sexual, and Not Ensouled Beings. The fashions that are available are sexual. And the colors that men and women wear, these days, are very dark. If you look at a crowd of people, you will see mostly very dark clothes.

This is the absolute nadir … the lowest point … of the Atlantean Age. And the Shift happened, a couple of years ago, to the blending of these energies, and the restoration of harmony on Earth. I am sure you already know this story.

The Lion’s Gate of Late July and Early August 2014: The Role of the Devic World and the Nature Spirits in Our Lives

So anyway, what happened last night, with this Gateway, for me: I came to an understanding about the role of the Devic World and the nature spirits in our lives. You know them by many names … the fay world, the faeries, the gnomes, the elves … I will bet you there are quite a few that we do not really know about, as human beings.

They are responsible for the nurturing of all life on Earth. And so, the Devic Kingdom will be responsible in the return of the Sacred Feminine to Earth.

  • That is your health, my health;
  • your birth, my birth.
  • They help us in our dying process.
  • Through all the pathway of our life they help us.
  • In the growing of plants they are instrumental.
  • In the fulfillment of wishes, they are the intermediaries.

The Role of the Nature Spirits in Human Free Will and in Wish Fulfillment

So when, for instance, that wonderful human being Tom Kenyon talks about the sphere of infinite possibilities, …

Link: “The Sphere of All Possibilities: A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon,” 18 August 2012 … http://tomkenyon.com/the-sphere-of-all-possibilities .. 

… that is the birthright of humanity, the missing link … the thing that we have not understood … is that the nature spirits are those beings of Light that create what we envision for us.

Our Connection with the Natural World: Key to Co-Creating New Earth

Celtic Faith Versus Christianity. What was lost in Celtic times, when the Christian Church took over there, was the understanding … the connection that we had … the working relation that we had with the natural world.

In Ireland, for instance, there are those that honor the faeries. But in the rest of the world, where Christianity has taken over, this connection has been lost, and in fact, is feared. But this connection is the key to co-creating New Earth.

Patriarchal Domination on the Astral Plane

So, first thing: This thing that has been going round … Patriarchal Domination … and this  I will rape you!  thing that has been happening, and this  No, no, no, please don’t!  thing that has been happening … The thing that the  No, no, no, please don’t!  people… which are the women,  almost invariably, but sometimes men … need to understand, is that all they have to do is explain to the nature world that they do not wish to receive this information; that they would like to stop receiving this information.

The Natural World Has Been Duped by Darkness

The nature world has been misled by Darkness, over and over again, because nature spirits have no untruth in them. They exist only for joy, and they speak only truth, you see. Darkness is the exact opposite … It has no integrity; it has no truth; and it has no love.

When they are confronted with beings like that, and told that something is true when it is not true, they think it is true. So what we have to do, as human beings, is tell them it is not true, so that they know.

A Solution to Psychic Rape: Explain to the Nature Spirits What We Humans Want to Hear

In the case of this thing that has been going around … this  I will rape you, I will rape you  thing, and then this  No, no, no, please don’t!  from the women … right? … the thing that the women have to do is explain to the nature spirits that: No! … They do not want to receive this information about rape. They do not want to receive it.

And any other bad thing or dark thing that comes their way: No! They do not want to receive it. They do not want to hear: ‘My life has no quality.’ 

All we have to do, when we hear negative things from the nature spirits, is say:  No, no, no. Go on back.

How Elementals Travel Along Axiatonal Lines of Light and Psychic Cords

Apparently this works because they travel along the lines of energy … the axiatonal lines of Light, or what they call the ‘astral cords’ or ‘psychic cords’ that connect people. I have asked, and apparently it is the Elementals that do this …

Our Free Will Ability to Avoid Being Sent Emotions We Do Not Wish to Receive

And they are just trying to help us communicate with each other. It used to be unconsciously, and now it is becoming conscious. We have the ability, now, to say that we want to receive a certain emotion, or we do not. And we did not know that; we just did not know.

Men Can Get Help from the Nature Spirits in Healing Their Hearts

I do not know what to say about the guy thing … the  I will rape you, I will rape you  thing. There are a million kajillion men out there that would never think of doing that thing, but some sorts of wounding cause that difficulty.

And the men that are cognizant of what is happening … because it has gone worldwide … it has gone ‘viral’ … even though it appeals to their primal instincts, if they work with the nature spirits, they can help them to heal that. They can help heal their hearts, for instance. The nature spirits are good with heart chakra energy. They can fix it up. They can do a lot of things for us.

Conclusion

So, all I have to say is, Just say: No!

Just explain, if you hear something negative, that it is not true that you want to hear it. And those beautiful beings of Light will be more than happy to take it away for you.

And then, step two: Think about what you really want. Be very specific when you ask the nature spirits for it, because it can manifest immediately through the nature spirit world.

Always Use Positive Emotions in Communicating with the Nature Spirits. Oh yes, the other thing: When you talk with the nature spirits, it is very important not to emote negatively. Their hearts cannot stand it. So, even though something, through their intermediary help, may be causing distress to my heart, it is very important not to be angry with them, or upset with them … because they are always trying to help. You know?

So the thing to do is talk to them very sweetly and kindly. Do not forget; this is the very most important thing.

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

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is the last of five videos on the nature spirits, the faeries, and the Devic Realm.

This video describes a Sunday, 27 July 2014, understanding reached with the nature spirits and the Devas re telepathic neg-speak deriving from Darkness, such as these recently circulating telepathic by-lines …

  • This relationship is at an end
  • My life has no quality and
  • You have no personality

Odd phrases, would you not say? Some call these neg-speak or ‘malware’. Also in this video …

  • more on the nature spirits, as described by the School of Theoshopy at the beginning of the 1900s
  • a description of faerie funerals
  • a discussion of the true nature of nature spirits and of humans
  • a solution to telepathic neg-speak (‘malware’)
  • the School of Theosophy
  • what to do about Cupid nature spirits
  • singing through muses of music and through angels
  • how to heal the physical body through nature spirits

There is an edited Summary after the video …

    VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

A Request That Faeries Not Relay Unhappy Messages

Today I was talking with the nature realm. I explained that the Dark sometimes tells them that I might be interested in receiving a message that is not happy. But when the Dark says that, the Dark is not telling the Truth … And they wrote it down in their book. (I am not sure what book that is.)

And so they are initiating this procedure of understanding that it is not true, when they hear that a human wants unhappy messages. And it could be worldwide … You know, they are all connected; they are all like one great Soul.

Faerie Funerals

I should tell you, sometime, about faerie funerals … Well, all right, I will tell you …

I asked the faeries, and this is what they said: They are never unhappy. They never need to sleep. Their hearts are open and joyful always. And they do great work for the world.

They are not like us humans (who have individual Souls) until they get to the Devic level, apparently. (I read that part in the School of Theosophy teachings.)

I cannot attest to that, because I am not adept at that kind of thing. But it seems true to me, because of the way that they instantly communicate with each other. When you sing a song to them, all you have to do is sing it once, and every faerie knows it forever … It is kind of cool.

So from that perspective, I am guessing that Alice Bailey and those other great School of Theosophy leaders of the early 1900s were right about the group Soul teaching. Their line of evolution is different from ours, but in essence, in purpose, in tenor of energy, they are very close to us … because their true nature, from which they never deviate purposefully, is to express their hearts, their love, and their joy. And ours is the same.

So, I was going to tell you about a faerie funeral … I was talking with the faeries some time ago, and I did not know every much about it … I am still asking lots of questions; I still do not know much, hardly. All of a sudden, I heard a little scream. And I felt a faerie wink out of existence.

And I thought: Oh my God, what happened? I am very excitable in that way; I do not like to see things like that, or even think things like that, or hear things.

Oh, they said, He stepped on her.

And I thought: Oh my God!

But their point of view is very different. They said: That’s ok. That’s all right. We are going to have a wonderful funeral for her.

What they do is, they take flowers, and carry them on a bier in honor of the faerie who has gone. They said that the knowledge and understanding and experience of that faerie goes into their own understanding, so that the faerie is never really gone, in their own hearts. But just as a kind of ceremony, and to remember the beauty of that life, they carry this bier of flowers and garlands, and they sing a song for the faerie …

Image: “Death of the Fairy Queen,” by John Anster Christian Fitzgerald, 1864 … http://www.illusionsgallery.com/Fitzgerald–Death-of-the-Fairy-Queen-L.jpg ..

It was pretty cool. And so, anyway …

On Asking Faeries Not to Convey Repeating Neg-Speak Slogans

There are some slogans … repeating slogans, or key words or bylines … that have been passing around, through the clairaudient realms, lately. My feeling is that these are very carefully phrased, so as to create a negative energy in the human heart, an energy that is fairly mild, and not so easily detected as something more spectacularly worded would be.

I thought I would mention a couple of these, because you can ask the natural world, the Devic Realm, to work with you in eliminating them from your telepathic scenario.

What I have been running into, what I hear sometimes, is: This relationship is at an end. 

And I also hear: My life has no quality. That is another phrase.

And then, just as a final example, I hear: You have [or he or she has] no personality.

So if these phrases feel negative to you … to your own heart energy … what you can do is explain, to the nature spirits, that that energy is not for you; the energy of that phrase … or any other phrase that repeats and that you hear … is not for you.

There Are Many Kinds of Nature Spirits, with Many Different Specialties

Then, you know, nature spirits come in all different specialties. There are so many nature spirits, and so many different specialties. Every nature spirit knows about all these specialties, so you and I do not have to be an expert in it.

What you can do, is say: I would like to do this and such work. And then ask for the nature spirits that deal with that. And so, they know what to do.

I am going to give you two examples, as a heads up, of things I have discovered …

Cupid Nature Spirits. There are Cupid nature spirits … whose specialty is the Art of Love. Do not call them unless you are good and ready. Take my word for it! They are hard to dissuade once they have decided … But they will listen, eventually, in case you have a change of heart.

One thing you can do, in case you inadvertently call a Cupid nature spirit, is: Ask it to go to the nearest person that is really interested in that kind of work. And then they will take off like a flash, and head in another direction.

Muses of Music and Angelic Voices. So there is that. And here is another suggestion: Let’s say that you love singing, and that, like me, you do not have such a good voice. First, know that the nature spirits do not mind. If you are singing from your heart, they love it anyway. That is the first thing. So do not be shy; if you want to sing, sing!

But here is a trick I have learned: If you would like to sing a song, but you would like it to sound a little better than your own voice, then you can call a Muse of Music. They are wonderful! Ask them to sing for you … and see what happens. [Sighs.]

And if you are not too sure about a Muse of Music, you can ask an Angel to step in and sing for you, and see what happens.

Body Elementals and Spirits of Healing. These are only only two examples; there are many different specialties. And, pertinent to many people, there are nature spirits that deal with the health of the physical body. So if you have a pain, you can ask them to remove it. If you have a restriction in your movement, you can ask them to look into it. And so on.

The sky is the limit.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a video about wild plants of the Santa Monica Mountains that was taken on 20 March 2016, the day of the 2016 Spring Equinox, in the Santa Monica Mountains …

There is an edited Summary after the video. The Summary includes many images found in the video, and a few not found there …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO         top

Words of Warning         top
Please do not take my word as to whether these wild plants are edible … In many cases, I just heard it from other naturalists. Do your research, make sure you have identified a plant accurately, make sure most folks agree that it is edible, and then if you are sampling for the first time, try just a tiny bit, and wait a day to see if you have any reaction. Any iteration of this blog must include this warning. –Alice B. Clagett

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

We are going for a botanical walk in the Santa Monica Mountains today. We will see what we find here, on this beautiful Spring day.


Poison Oak         top

Here we have a beautiful Spring bloom of poison oak. So for those that are allergic to it, here is what it looks like, with berries …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 1: Poison Oak Closeup,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Pretty, is it not? Poison oak is a relative of poison ivy, which is on the East Coast. But poison oak grows into a bush, and poison ivy is a climbing vine that climbs up the East Coast.

While most Caucasian people seem to be allergic to poison oak and poison ivy, the Native Americans had a number of uses for it, including using the pliable stems of the poison oak …

California Native Mustards         top

I am pretty sure that this is a California native mustard here …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 4: California Native Mustard,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

They grow singly; not like the ones introduced by the Padres. They grow singly, and in odd ecological niches. Ups, here is another one over here … where is it? … right over here is another one. And oh, I see some more … yes, some more, just coming up, So under this native coastal live oak tree here …

… there are a number of them. It is a very small econiche. It is not like the open field is full of mustard seeds that the Padres brought. But it is beautiful in its own way … very dainty, very nice … somewhat hard to find. There are a number of California native mustard species or types like this. While they are edible, they are endangered, so it is best to leave them alone, with the hope that they may flourish in future.


Black Sage         top

This is black sage here …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 9: Wild Cucumber,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It has a very huge root. And I see it is too soon for the prickly fruits of the wild cucumber to come out. It is a vine, and it has holdfasts that are … let’s see if I can find one … very little whorls of circular or circles of holdfasts. Ok, there is one, reaching out into space …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 10: Wild Cucumber Holdfast,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is trying to catch hold of a plant, so that it can pull the wild cucumber vine up higher into the sunlight. It climbs like crazy in the early Spring, and then it just withers away, and survives by means of the huge root underground.

This variety of nightshade … the one with the purple flowers … has fruits that are not edible. Here is the fruit of the purple, or deadly, nightshade …

Image: “Wild Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains 14: Purple (Deadly) Nightshade Fruits,” by Alice B. Clagett, 20 March 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is a very small, immature fruit, but as I recall, it comes out green when mature, and so it is distinguished from the mature fruit of the white nightshade, which is purple, Fruit is mature when it is soft or squishy.

There are nightshade references at the end of the “White Nightshade” section below.


White Nightshade         top

There is another nightshade, white nightshade (Solanum douglasii), that has black fruit; I heard from a naturalist that the black fruit were edible, but after trying one of the berries, I feel a little queasy. So I would advise caution in trying even the white nightshade fruit.

For those who are allergic to tomatoes, eggplants, or potatoes, which I understand to be in the same family, common sense dictates avoiding the fruit of the white nightshade.

Nightshades are a little like mushrooms: Only those who are certain what variety they have in hand ought collect them for consumption. This link is a good guide to the various nightshades of California …

Fiddleneck: In one place read that this plant is poisonous, and in another that it had Native American uses. I would steer clear of it entirely.

It has a seed cluster (sumac ‘drupe’ or ‘bob’) that looks like a dusky, red Christmas tree. The birds eat it. I heard from my mother that it is poisonous, but I think in the Orient that this, or some relative of it, is used as a spice. So that is something to look into, for the future, without actually consuming it in advance of the research. [The spice I had in mind is Ziyad Brand Sumac, but whether this is the same or a different plant, I have no idea.]

They smell absolutely delightful. They also have medicinal qualities, but the scent is not as ‘dark’ or strong as the scent of black sage (which has blue flowers). The purple sage have purple flowers, and the leaves look white.

White Sage         top

I doubt we will see any white sage on this walk. White sage has straight, white stems, and it is gathered … usually illegally … by people who sell it in bundles for incense to purify or cleanse people’s homes. You will see six-inch or eight-inch stacks of it, tied with yarn or string, and sold in the stores, and typically it is gathered nearby, rather than out in the National Forests, where, as i recall, it may be legal to gather it.

So I would like to ask, on behalf of the conservancy organizations: Please do not gather wild plants in the National Parks or the Santa Monica Mountains or like that … places where it so easy to gather, and where things can become endangered if you, in fact, do that. This is just a plea and an explanation. I am hoping for the best, there.

… which has so many uses, I must look them all up! But I will tell you one colorful example: They say that if you gather mugwort, which grows plentifully in some areas, and dry it, and put it inside your pillow, then you will have special dreams.

I tried this myself; and because I was not all that fond of the strong odor of the mugwort, my dreams were not all that pleasant. But you may have better luck than I.

The other thing I know about mugwort: To my mind, ‘wort’ means ‘plant’ and ‘mug’, to me, means that you make tea out of it, and put it in a mug. That is how I think of it. And so I remember that a tea of this is good for women. It solves various troubles that can be looked up, and brings balance to the female system. There may be other uses too.

The Native Americans would gather them, haul them, mash them up, net them, put them in running water, in a stream or like that, in the wintertime, to get the bitter tannin out of them, and then mash them up more, and use them as flour in their foods.

And because they mashed them in stone hollows, with stones, the acorn meal was mixed up with sands from the stone, it was mixed in with the food that they ate, and it wore down their teeth at a very early age. It is better to use some other kind of mashing technique, I feel.

Here are the leaves of the tree that produces the acorns …

The San Fernando Valley in the Time of the Conquistadores         top

They say that, in the time of the Conquistadores … when they came through here … that all the San Fernando Valley was covered with live oak trees. There was no chaparral to speak of, here. And the Conquistadores could come riding under the cover of the great oak trees all day long, in the San Fernando Valley. It was like a beautiful parkland then.

The terrain has really changed since then, what with the grazing, and the cutting down of the trees, and so forth.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

On Encountering Devilish Astral Entities on a Walk

Walking up a mountain today, I encountered many little, devilish astral entities, perhaps because, as my heart rate increased with exertion, my body cells became agitated? Then I sat, at the top of the mountain, and the astral chatter around me started to calm down; at the same time, my heart rate decreased, and presumably, my body cells became less agitated.

The Pros and Cons of Lying to Small Demons and Devils

Later, as I walked along the ridge of the mountain, I noticed some little Demons and Devils hanging around, swooping in, saying, “Who are you? Who are you?” I tried tricking them; instead of explaining that I am a Lightworker, I said, “I am a Darkworker!”

Just like that, they all scattered off. But this only worked for a short time. Apparently, as I clair heard about it, these little entities have a mandate from the (presumably more prestigious) entity in charge of that local group. He says that humans can’t lie, and that Devils and Demons can lie. So his aficionados figure that we humans are telling the truth, no matter what.

But when a human says, “I’m a Darkworker,” when in truth they are a Lightworker, then all the nature spirits, the positive astral entities of the Devic Kingdom, get upset, and they start chasing you around. So, I find, it is better to tell the truth in the spirit world … as I found out later.

After a while, I got down to the bottom of the mountain, and I sat for a while on my favorite meditation stone … the one that has an orange cat’s-eye marble as a gift for the faeries on it. With great jubilation, I announced, “I’m a Lightworker!” … hoping this would clear the matter up. All the faeries and nature spirits gathered enthusiastically around. They were discussing the pros and cons of not telling the truth, if you are a human.

On Dancing with and Singing to Friendly Nature Spirits

Then I started on my way back, accompanied by those lively nature spirits. I visualized doing an Irish jig with them; they were delighted! They love it when I sing songs, or hum songs, as I go along, whether I do so on the astral or the physical plane. They love to follow along with the sound of an astral voice singing. They love to dance, and they love to mimic humans when they dance.

Video: “Irish Dance Group – Irish Step Dancing (Riverdance) 2009,” by fritz51286, 2 February 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgGAzBDE454 ..

So by the time I got back to the starting point of my hike, I found I had a whole coterie of delightful nature spirits around me. So I took one more marble out … a beautiful, blue, cats eye marble … and I placed it in the place where the Sunlight will hit it on a sunny day; in a special place, for my new friends to enjoy it.

The Devic Kingdom Is the Steward of the Natural World

For the young folks that are watching this video, I would like to explain something about trees and tree spirits; and how the stewardship of the natural world takes place. You see, there is a whole other kingdom, besides the kingdom that we see in the physical world. It’s called the Devic Kingdom.

The Work That the Devas Do

Those that undertake the greatest responsibility of stewardship of planet Earth are the Devas, who are ancient beings with great wisdom. These great, wise beings form a Devic Council. There are Devas of the cliffs; of the mountaintops; sometimes of great, vast valleys; of the ocean; of the Sun; and of the Moon. Nearly every natural feature has a Deva in charge of it.

The Nature Spirits That Take Care of Trees

In the care of the Devas are all the nature spirits and the elementals. There are great old oak trees, great treasures of Earth, there on that trail I was walking. Folks do not know that there are nature spirits assigned to take care of these trees; quite a few, actually, when it comes to the largest trees. These nature spirits take particular pride in the shape of the tree, and in making sure that it can live happily and long.

Today I saw some trees today with what you might call graffiti … paint sprayed on them in the form of pictures and words. I have to say, that it just breaks their hearts when this happens to the trees that the nature spirits tend.

The Boycott of Los Angeles and the Large Cities of Earth by the Devic Council

So, please, if you are a young person, and you like to make your mark on the world with graffiti, please do not do it on living beings such as trees. It is very important that we make friends with the Devas, because they are boycotting Los Angeles and the large cities right now, and have asked the nature spirits not to talk to us humans at all. This is because the Devas cannot tolerate the living conditions we humans are imposing on the nature spirits there.

The Evil to Which the Nature Spirits Fall Prey in the Large Cities of Earth

And so, the nature spirits in the large cities of Earth are having a very difficult time of it. Without the guidance of the Devas, they fall prey, over and over again, to the machinations of the demon world, which hypnotizes these innocent beings in furtherance of its Machiavellian ends. 

Please Respect Trees, and the Natural World That Is So Very Important to Us

After they are mesmerized with black magic, and without the wise guidance of the Devas, these beautiful little nature spirits can tend well to the trees and plants and flowers in the large cities. That is why plants do not grow very well in the cities. And we need plants because, without plants, we won’t have oxygen in the air; and we humans need oxygen in order to stay alive.

So please do your very best to respect the natural world, and help it to flourish in a natural state. Well, that’s my statement for today; I speak on behalf of the nature spirits that I met on the trail.

Have a wonderful day … And, happy adventures in the natural world!

JANUARY 2017 REPORT ON DEVAS IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA

Yesterday, on 21 January 2017, I saw a younger Deva on a ridgetop in the Greater Los Angeles area. Also, last year, in 2016, an older Deva made the journey from Tejon Ranch, through the intervening natural areas, through a wildlife underpass on Route 118 that runs through Simi Valley, and thence to the ridgetops of the Simi Hills overlooking my home in Los Angeles. Also, there has been, for some time, a Deva on the clifftop near Gaviota State Park, located on the Pacific Ocean north of Los Angeles.

It is my hope that this increased sighting of Devas in the Los Angeles area heralds a new age of cooperation amongst the Devic Kingdom and humankind for the stewardship of New Earth.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO ASSIST IN BRINGING THE DEVAS BACK TO OUR URBAN AREAS, AND TO HELP THE NATURE SPIRITS

If you would like to assist in this endeavor, then one way to do so is to clairly call to the Devas, and ask them to visit your city. Leave little gifts for the nature spirits, through song and dance, and clairly express your gratitude to them for their work. Also, ask God to bless them, that they may be free from the ill effects of Black Magic enspellment forever.

The establishment of wildlife corridors, and diminution of traffic in the cities through ridesharing and community transport, are also very important, as is the greening of the river courses, roadways, and home spaces in urban areas.

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

Gifts for Nature Spirits! . by Alice B. Clagett

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

A nature spirit story for you! There is an edited Summary after the Video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Here is a little place, I see, where people have been sitting under a beautiful tree … A live oak tree. And here [shows stumps used as seats on the ground] they have taken a couple of stumps, and made them into seats.

And over here [shows big oak tree branch on the ground] on this long branch of the oak tree … looks like it broke off and fell down, and now it has become quite the bearer of oak leaves once more. So it is living just fine there … which is often the case with these California live oak trees.

And over here, where nobody will bother it … because I forgot my cats eye marbles today … So I looked around, and I asked the nature spirits if it would be ok to put one of the stones from outside, over here [on the ground under the tree] as a present for them.

And they said: Those are our stones now!

So then I saw some nails lying around on the dirt outside. And I know that those nails are very bad for the birds and the animals … that they eat them, and that it can injure them.

And so I said to the nature spirits: Well, how would it be if I were to pick up these nails and take them back, because I would not want them to harm your animals?

And they said: Oh, that would be fine!

So then I had a thought … Someone suggested to me, mind to mind; a young person that I know said: What if you were to take some of those stones, and make a circle for the nature spirits?

And so I asked the nature spirits, and they said: Oh, yes, we would like that!

So after I picked up the nails, I picked the prettiest stones I could, around the area, and this is what I made, as a present for the nature spirits. I hope they like it ok …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I just happen to be over on this street in Pagosa Hot Springs today, and I noticed the music coming from across the street. [Shows street and music store.] And so there I looked. Live music! And it is called the music shop, right? This music is nonstop over here … It is kind of happy music. Nice, huh?

So then I went indoors, away from the traffic, and I could hear nature spirits talking to me. They were so excited! They were dancing and singing the same songs I had heard outside. It was really cool. And so then I got the connection, you know? They are hanging out here because of the music.

So then I was walking over this way, and I saw this tree. [Shows side of building, and tree beside the building.] And the leaves were shimmering in the wind at the time. And it seemed to me like there were fairies and nature spirits everywhere … all over this tree. So cool! The ground was shimmering; the tree was shimmering; everything, just beautiful!

Then I said to myself: I am going to go get my camcorder and take a picture of these fairies! 

To which they replied: Oh, no! We don’t like that!

And all in a flash, each and every one of them lit out to the hinterlands … specifically, to the beautiful pine forest on the mountain behind the tree.

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

The Devas and the Nature Spirits . by the Theosophists

Revised; originally published 30 Nov 2013

Dear Ones,

Here are thoughts by the School of Theosophy on the Devic Kingdom … the devas, nature spirits, elves, fairies, trolls, gnomes, and so on.

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

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….
THE DEVAS AND THE NATURE SPIRITS, BY THE THEOSOPHISTS

“The Second Outpouring, in addition to its work of forming the Elemental and other Kingdoms, also brings with it evolved beings, at various stages of development, who form the normal and typical inhabitants of the Three Elemental Kingdoms. These beings have been brought over by the Logos from a preceding evolution. They are now sent forth to inhabit the plane for which their development fits them; they co-operate with the work of the Logos, and later with man, in the general scheme of evolution. From them, man derives his perishable bodies.

“They are known in some religions as Angels, to Hindus as Devas—meaning literally, Shining Ones. Plato speaks of them as ‘Minor Gods’. It is the translation of the word ‘Deva’ as ‘Gods’ which has led to much misapprehension of Eastern thought. The ‘thirty-three crores (330 millions) of Gods’, are not Gods in the Western sense of the term, but are Devas or Shining Ones.

“Of these there are many grades, including representatives on each of the five lower planes, i.e.,  those of Atma, Buddhi, Manas, Kama, and the etheric part of the physical plane.

“Their bodies are formed of the Elemental Essence of the Kingdom to which they belong, and are flashing and many-hued, changing form at the will of the entity Himself. They form a vast host, ever actively at work, labouring at the Elemental Essence to improve its quality, taking it to form their own bodies, throwing it off again and taking other portions, so as to render it more sensitive.

“In the First Elemental Kingdom, on the higher mental or causal plane, they make materials ready to clothe abstract thoughts. In the Second Elemental Kingdom, on the lower mental plane, they make materials ready to clothe concrete thoughts. In the Third Elemental Kingdom, on the astral plane, they prepare materials for the clothing of desires.

“At the stage which we are now considering, this work of improving the Elemental Essence, is the only work there is for them to do. Later on, they are also constantly busied in the shaping of forms, in aiding human egos on the way to incarnation in building their new bodies, bringing materials of the kind required and helping in its arrangements. The less advanced the ego, the greater the directive work of the Devas. With animals they do almost all the work, and practically all with the vegetables and minerals. They are the active, agents of the Logos, carrying out all details of His world-plan, and aiding, the countless evolving lives to find materials they need for their clothing and use. Included with them are the vast numbers of the fairy kingdom, known as nature spirits, trolls, gnomes, and by countless other names.

“Some description of these hosts of beings is given in The Astral Body and The Mental Body, so that there is no need to describe them further here. All we are really concerned with at the moment is their origin, and the part they play in helping the Monads to commence their evolution in the lower planes.

“The term Deva is, strictly speaking, not wide enough to cover all the living agencies which are employed in the work connected with the Monads and their long pilgrimage through the lower worlds. This work is carried out by no less than seven orders of beings, known collectively as Creative Hierarchies, the Monads, themselves, curiously enough, being one of the seven.

“For our present purposes, however, in order not to make the description too complicated and involved, we shall denote all these agencies by the single term Devas. In a later and separate chapter we shall to some extent go over the ground again more in detail, and give the names and functions [so far as these are known] of the seven Creative Hierarchies.

“Thus we see that before any embodied consciousness, save that of the Logos and His Creative Hierarchies, could appear, or do anything at all, a vast preliminary work had to be accomplished, preparing the ‘form-side’ of the field of evolution.”

What If the Fourth Dimension Were Truer? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 30 May 2013; revised

  • WHAT IF MAGIC WERE REAL?
  • WHAT DIMENSION ARE WE REALLY IN?
  • ON THE POSSIBILITY THAT THERE ARE ALTERNATE VERSIONS OF EVERY DIMENSION
  • MY EARTHLY INCARNATIONS
  • GETTING TO 5D

Dear Ones,

WHAT IF MAGIC WERE REAL?

What if the fourth dimension were a ‘truer’ reality … closer to Source … than 3D? Ghosts and goblins and all that stuff. Magic, both black and white. Elves and faeries and gnomes and such. Very, very bad beings and very, very good beings, coexisting. The ability to instantaneously will things into existence …

WHAT DIMENSION ARE WE REALLY IN?

Let’s make an assumption and see where we go with it: Let’s assume that we humans are experiencing a mixture of fourth dimension (astral plane) and third dimension (physical world) right now. Let’s say each dimension has 12 levels or planes, and that there are 12 dimensions in our Universe.

ON THE POSSIBILITY THAT THERE ARE ALTERNATE VERSIONS OF EVERY DIMENSION

Parallel Universe theory has it that there are lots of versions of each universe. Way lots. Let’s assume this means there are as many versions of each dimension. Each of us, as an eternal soul, is acting out what are most probably wildly differing experiences in each of these parallel universes. The marriage that didn’t happen in this reality, did happen in another reality. We died a month after birth in one of our realities. We have a wonderful relationship with our loving parents in this reality, but in some other reality we were orphaned shortly after birth. We’re an only child, but elsewhere we’re part a family of 10. And so on.

In each of these parallel universes, our life is (or would it be ‘lives are’ ?) unfolding simultaneously, in the eternal Now.

If, in fact, the fourth dimension (the astral world) is the teaching vehicle for the ascending Soul, and the third dimension is just a lesson-oriented ‘field trip’ away from the astral planes, then the likelihood is that … taking all our simultaneous parallel universe experience as a whole … we’re experiencing more time Now in the fourth dimension than in the third dimension. Say, 2 physical experiences concurrent with every 10 astral experiences.

In 3D, we have the illusion of many … say 100, or 200 … incarnations, which we conceive as being in the past, and perhaps as having progressed from simple to complex, or from crude and unlearned to cream-of-the-crop, like this:

MY EARTHLY INCARNATIONS

Suppose life were like a deck of cards:

Image: Playing cards, spread out in an arc … http://www.dreaminterpretation.co/imgs/dream-interpretation-deck-of-cards_456x0.jpg ..

The first earthly life might conceived of as being the nearly hidden 4 of hearts at the bottom of the stack/ The current lifetime might be conceived to be like the 10 of spades, on top of the stack.

But all my incarnations are actually taking place simultaneously, in the Now. Like this …

Image: Stacked pack of playing cards …  http://previews.123rf.com/images/violin/violin1111/violin111100090/11270596-Deck-of-playing-cards-isolated-on-white-background-Stock-Photo.jpg ..

These neatly stacked cards may be thought of as our ‘akashic records’.

GETTING TO 5D

Beginning with the most dense akashic record … say, the 10 of clubs in the illustration above — we must clear all our cards. Which is what is happening now. Earth is facilitating this process for us. Since the Shift, rays from the central sun are beaming to our Sun, which transmutes them for absorption by earth and her beings. Earth is absorbing these vibes, and those of us who physically walk on Earth are absorbing Earth’s vibes and clearing our akashic cards … as opposed to those of us who, for example, are placing our awareness on our mental body (the 3D, truncated version of our mental body), or on virtual reality as generated by the ‘news’, TV, and internet.

So, we may have an experience of, say, disembodies entities. Or archontic machinations. Or telepathic intrusion. Or black magic. Or any of many other lower 4D phenomena.

We may ‘think’ that something is ‘being done’ to us. And no wonder, since 4D, like 3D, is heavily imbued with the right-wrong, good-bad polarity.

But in fact, when we have these polarized experiences, is something being ‘done to us’? Or are we simply ruffling through our own akashic records, in the many realms of experience, the many parallel universes, the many concurrent incarnations, that we ourselves are clearing in the Now? And then every once in a while, we could imagine that one of our cards lights up with a brilliant white light. And this is the process of karmic clearing.

We might think of ourselves like this …

Image: “Soul Matrix (Matriz del Alma),” from Spiritual Harmonics Blogspot … http://spiritualharmonics.blogspot.com/2013/02/group-souls-monads-of-144-soul-mates.html … DESCRIPTION: Left: 3-D Representation: Pendant cone. At the top of the cone is a dot labeled Monad. At the bottom of the cone are 12 dots arranged in a circle. One of these is labeled Soul. One of the Soul dots is the tip of a pendant cone, at the bottom of which are 12 dots arranged in a circle. One of those dots is labeled Soul Extension. Right: Top View: A large wheel whose outer rim comprises 12 small wheels. Each of the wheels has 6 spokes. Legend: 144 Soul Extensions per Monad … COMMENT: Each label on the image has a Spanish translation as well.

We might imagine a Divine hologame projector (not shown), and Oversoul “I”  as the top left-hand circle. Beneath it are 12 parallel universes, in which I explore the Now. Each of these 12 holds within its experience that of 12 more parallel universes. Thus the Monad might be conceived as being 144 Soul experiences all taking place in the Now.

Each circle is like one astral ‘field of being.’ As a side view, you could picture it thus: Each incarnation is like one piece of pasta in a big bowl of astral minestrone soup! …

Beneath these are a circle labeled Oversoul “I.” Between the boxes and the circle are two dotted lines representing projection of Light from the Divine hologame projector as the form of the Oversoul. Beneath the circle representing the Oversoul are 6 dotted lines fanning outward. Each dotted line is connected to a small circle. One of the circles is labeled “My life in parallel universes.” Beneath one of the small circles is a large circle with many dots in it. Two dotted lines between the small circle and the large circle beneath it represent projection of Light from an Oversoul’s life in a parallel universe as the form of the incarnations. Legend beneath the large circle with many dots in it: “My 100-200 incarnations in one of my parallel universes. The circle is an astral ‘field of being’.

What is ascending here? The Oversoul ‘I’ (my Higher Self … the real me! … is ascending.

How much of this am I presently cognizant of? Gosh … ok, I know about my current experience, sort of. Maybe a glimpse of a few incarnations. I’ve met a few astral beings. Been briefly to a few of my parallel universe parallel lives. Do I have the big picture? duh …

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