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.

ELEMENTALS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

……

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

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

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

HOW DIFFERENT SORTS OF ELEMENTALS RELATE TO DIFFERENT SORTS OF HUMANS

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

Dear Ones,

UPWELLING OF LEMURIAN CONSCIOUSNESS

There is something happening right now that I would have trouble explaining from a logical standpoint. But I will try to describe it using my intuition.

There is an upwelling of Lemurian consciousness. There are floods here in Colorado, and the undines (1) … also known as water nymphs, water spirits, and water elementals … are everywhere … in the air, in the earth, and of course, dancing joyfully in the rivers, reservoirs, and rain.

This upwelling of Lemurian and undine energy has a great purpose … it is cleansing us humans, whether we exist in the third dimension, in dense physical bodies, or whether we have passed over, and are existing in the fourth dimension right now. The cleansing energy is helping us to be reborn into the fifth dimension as sovereign human beings. So the Lemurian and undine ‘waters’ are like the waters of our human birth process, easing the transition to a new world.

WATER ELEMENTAL CLEANSING AND GLITCHES IN ELECTRONICS AND ELECTRICAL DEVICES

I gather that this water elemental cleansing process does not agree that well with technology. In my case, that goes for the phone and the internet. Fortunately the electricity and the car are still working ok.

NATAL FAMILY KARMA AND REBIRTHS

In recent times, humans have more often than not existed in extended natal family groups that are born and reborn together, often in enmity contexts that facilitate the mutual karmic disentanglement. Or in some cases, further entanglement.

Karma keeps these extended natal families close together, even though some members are incarnate and others nonphysical at any moment. We have not known it, but it has not been at all uncommon for our physical presence in the world to be connected to, and carrying around with us, the ghosts of our ancestors … members of our extended family who have passed on. Why? Because of our continuing karmic entanglement with them.

ON THE GHOSTS OF OUR ANCESTORS NOW TURNING TO THE LIGHT

So what is happening now? Feels like the karmic entanglements with our extended natal families are being ‘washed away’ by the Lemurian and undine energies. As they released from me, I could clairaudiently hear these ghosts of my ancestors waking up, shaking themselves awake, summoning the courage to turn to their guides, take their shining hands, and step out into the great unknown that is Love.

And what does this freeing up, this karmic disentanglement, mean to us incarnate humans? Like me, you may hear your family awaken and depart. You may notice your subconscious tendencies become less insistent. You may feel yourself returning to heart-felt mastery.

This is the moment of rebirth for all of us! Way so wow! … for us all! I feel like diving in a river!

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

Dear Ones,

Here are two videos on Rainmaking. There is an edited Summary beneath each video …

VIDEO BY ALICE: RAINMAKING 1
Filmed on 6 May 2016; published on 22 May 2016

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I just wanted to explain a little to you about rainmaking today, and also about what happened last night and today about the rain.

Yesterday I went for a Sierra Club hike along the trails up Stunt Road to Saddleback Mountain. What we saw was many stressed chaparral plants, that were in trouble because they needed more rain. In a minute, I will show you a picture of those: How it looks, and how you can tell.

While I was on the trail, I took what spare water I had, on the way down, and I watered two chaparral plants that looked like they really needed it, with the remaining water that I had. And then, when I got home, I was thinking about the plants.

Now trees are something that I really love; I have loved them all my life. It means a lot to me that the trees in this area, and all over Earth, should be very healthy. So I got to thinking how I had had success, in the past, with rainmaking. That was yesterday afternoon. And I was talking, on the clair plane, with the lady down the hill, about it.

So I just said to myself: Ok, I will just ask for rain right now. I will ask the nature world and the devas to bring us rain, all over the county of Los Angeles. I would like four inches of rain; steady, gentle rain, followed by intervals when the water could sink into the Earth, with optimal amounts of water draining off the land, so that most of the water sinks in. And so: All over the County of Los Angeles, four inches of rain.

And I put forth that request, that that should be happening. So this morning I woke up, and right about mid-morning I woke up. And I was very surprised; here in sunny California there was a gigantic rain cloud over the Santa Susana Mountains, right across from where I live, across from the Chatsworth Nature Preserve.

While I was looking, it started raining all over the Santa Susana Mountains, and the lady who lives down the hill noticed too. She got very excited about it, and she said: Bring that rain cloud over here! I would like to have rain over here as well!

And I said: Well, you know, you could have rain both places. Let’s ask for rain everywhere where it needs to be ... So she did.

Five or ten minutes later, the rain cloud came over to my place and her place, and started raining very gently over there. It was time for me to go get some lunch and to go to a particular movie I wanted to see. So I took off in my car, and be darned if the rain cloud did not follow me, because I love rain, right? That’s what I think!

When I went in to get the food, it was raining steadily. And when I went out to go to the movie, it was raining steadily there, in that place. And when I came out, it was still raining a little. It was great!

So then I thought I would go check Saddleback Peak area, because I had explained to the nature spirits, in great detail, about how to get there, and how the chaparral trees really needed the rain right now.

And the nature spirits were so funny; they were really incredibly enthusiastic. They went: Wow! Let’s go see what that looks like right now! Let’s go explore! … And they went off and looked at that.

And I said: Don’t forget the red shanks over there; they need it too.

And they said: Woo, let’s go look at that!

And so that was a lot of fun. It was a medium-sized rain cloud; I was hoping that they could come here [to Saddleback Peak] too.

While I was going out, I heard from the Native Americans on the clair plane. They are very interested in rainmaking. They usually do not speak, except among themselves, on the clair plane, but today they did mention something; they said it would be better for us to get together our men, because men have a lot of power in asking for rain. They can do a rain dance, and they can ask for rain.

I said: How is that, that they have more power?

And they said: Well, they stomp on the ground! … and I think they said: At the end, they raise their arms up high, and they ask for rain!

So I thought: Gosh, maybe a neighborhood event; who knows? … Neighborhood Watch … a rain gathering; a rainmaking session.

I will see if I can interest anyone in that. And I hope that you might be interested too. You could find out the true technique for doing it, and you could pursue that … because the nature elementals, the spirits of the air and the water are very responsive to human thought, to human requests, and to human enthusiasm about rain and wind and weather … all kind s of things. So you have to be very specific; you have to say what it is that you really want. And they are so enthusiastic about responding.

Today was just an incredible day; they were going on and on, and I was too. So I came here. To sum it all up, I came to the place where I was yesterday on an eight-mile hike with quite a bit of elevation gain for recent days. And I found what I will show you right here …

First, as I was coming up, I noticed the rain clouds coming up, over the far horizon, out towards Santa Barbara …

And then I got up to the peak, and I noticed this big rain cloud here …

And there was rain; you can still see a little bit of the rain on the windshield here …

And there was misty rain coming over the mountains. You see that mist? The chaparral plants absorb that mist as water sometimes; that is their water intake. So they are drinking that water right now.

And then, down all across this region, down there …

Image: “Rain Making 4,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… I saw rain clouds everywhere, and rain everywhere. Look over there; look down there …

Image: “Rain Making 5,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

See that rain? Look at all that! Rain everywhere. Wow!

So here is the thing: If you want rain, you have to ask for rain. You have to say what kind of rain you want; how long you want it to last; how many inches; for how many days … And you have to be very specific and very upbeat.

Know that you have this power. You have this power, and you have a right to speak what your will is, in the world, for the weather of Earth.

I had one conversation on the psychic plane today that is well worth repeating. I hope no one is embarrassed about it. In addition to the Sierra Club, I am also a member of the California Native Plant Society, And that society is the caretaker for a nature preserve that goes through a riparian area, high up the mountain, into the red shank, right here on the other side of what I just showed you … on the right, here. And that place is called Cold Creek Preserve.

There is a path in the preserve that goes by a cliff that keeps crumbling, and so it is difficult to maintain the path. And what I found out is that there are some people that care about the Cold Creek Preserve, who are preventing the rain from coming there by simple thought process that, if the rain comes, then there is a chance that the cliff will collapse onto the pathway, and they will not be able to walk through again.

If you have concerns of this nature, the important thing to do is to visualize the rain that your concerned area of the world needs, and specify those places where the rain should be a little less, or maybe not even happen … such as that little cliff area … so that everything else can be watered; because it is very important for the plants and animals, and even the rocks in the mountains, and in the valleys, and by the seas, and along the coastal scrub … everywhere … that it should have just the right amount of water to flourish.

We can do that. But by our unconscious thoughts and fears and concerns, we can prevent the area, too, from getting the rainfall that it needs.

I would like to encourage each of you to start your own raindance, and your own rain thoughts, and to develop your own rainmaking ability, with crisply delineated parameters. And, get to know your nature spirits and your nature elementals, and your devas! Devas are cool!

. . . . .

Well, now I am taking another survey of the rain here, near Stunt Mountain and Cold Creek Preserve, and I see a promising sight off over this way …

Image: “Rain Making 6,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Back in those far mountains there is rain in the air, and there may be rain actually coming down on the land over there. Then there is a chance of rain over this way …

Image: “Rain Making 7,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 7,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… there is this giant mountain with a fire road [Calabasas Peak Motorway] that goes up it, You can walk up that fire road, and then turn right half way, or two-thirds of the way up the mountain [onto West Red Rock Road] and go down into Red Rock Canyon Park on the other side … up this mountain here; see that road? …

Image: “Rain Making 8: Saddleback Peak and Calabasas Peak Motorway,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

It is pretty foreboding, but there are beautiful views, and a wonderful workout. Then over this way, it looks to me like, off in the far distance, there is a chance of rain actually coming down out of the clouds; not half way down, but the whole way down, and hitting those mountains over there …

Image: “Rain Making 9,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 9,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Back over here to the left, the cloud of rain has moved quickly, in this direction, and it is raining more here towards us, closer to us and closer to the big mountain with the fire road on it …

Image: “Rain Making 10,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 10,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Higher up, at the top of the mountain here, where three roads [Stunt Road, Schueren Road, and Saddle Peak Road] meet, I noticed that there had been rain, because the sides of the road were a little bit wet and pretty muddy …

Image: “Rain Making 11: Stunt Road,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 11: Stunt Road,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

On the top of the mountain there, the thing of it is that the airs from the ocean hit the mountain here and cause more precipitation, and also more mistfall through the mountains. And so it is more likely to get rain than this area where I am walking right now … which is, unfortunately, I have to say, way too dry. See there? … too sandy dry …

I am going to check out the trees right now, specifically the manzanita trees, because they are one of my most beautiful favorites, and I am very concerned about them, although all the trees are worth looking at and figuring out about.

Here I am entering one of the trails next to Cold Creek Preserve, but not on the one we walked up and down yesterday …

Image: “Rain Making 13,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 13,” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And this trail contains some excellent examples of stressed chaparral shrubs. My favorite, right here, is the manzanita tree or shrub (Arctostaphylos)

Image: “Rain Making 14: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 14: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

I think it must be a relative of the Pacific madrone (Ericaceae) tree on the far northern coast of California, that grows to such beautiful height, and has such beautiful red bark like this shrub …

Image: “Rain Making 15: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 15: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And so I am pretty sure they are related, but I do not know for certain. They look a lot alike. And then the leaves typically look like this when the tree is not stressed …

Image: “Rain Making 16: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 16: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

But this tree is stressed for lack of water. And so some of the leaves have turned yellow …

Image: “Rain Making 17: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 17: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And over here too, you will see lots more yellow leaves. See there?  …

Image: “Rain Making 18: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 18: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And then over here, after the leaves turn yellow, sometimes they actually die. And here is a case of leaves that have died back, because the plant cannot support them because of lack of water.

Image: “Rain Making 19: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Rain Making 19: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

All right, so here we have, on the same trail, a very stressed manzanita plant. Not only are the leaves all speckled … some yellow, some brown, and some green …

Image: “Rain Making 20: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

… but down here at the bottom we have just a lot of brown leaves where the dieback has occurred …

Image: “Rain Making 21: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And also the bark looks unusual to me. You see, healthy bark of a manzanita shrub or chaparral tree looks smooth like this bark here …

Image: “Rain Making 22: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

But what we saw on the trail yesterday was a lot of bark that looked almost blistered, like this …

Image: “Rain Making 23: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

You see those blisters on the bark there? We saw whole trees with blistered bark like that. I think that is a response to lack of water and stress …

Image: “Rain Making 24: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

Now here is a very good one; a very fine specimen of manzanita …

Image: “Rain Making 25: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

And you will see the way that the bark is, right now …

Image: “Rain Making 26: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

I will try to get a little closer up. See how it looks all blistered and stressed out? Look at that! First time I have ever seen it  …

Image: “Rain Making 27: Manzanita (Arctostaphylos),” by Alice B. Clagett, 6 May 2016, CC BY-SA 4.0

See there? And also, farther up it seems to be peeling back. Look at that …

So this is what I am asking: That all these chaparral trees, the ‘elven forest’ of the Santa Monica Mountains …

… should be completely healed, through appropriate water from the skies, and through the zephyrs of the air, and the beautiful water elementals as well ..

That the sylphs should blow the clouds where they need to be, and that the water elementals should make sure that the right amount of rain gets to the right place; that is my wish and my hope; and if each of you wish it with me, I am certain that is exactly what will happen here on planet Earth …

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

I am here in my official rainmaking capacity. I was just down at the Chatsworth Nature Preserve and Reservoir, checking; and then I checked all the way up here to Sage Ranch Park in the Simi Hills. I checked on top of the mountain, and all along the way it had rained. Let me show you …

Here we are, at Sage Ranch Park, and you can see, off in the distance here, more rain clouds …

… and then blowing them in the right direction. You see, right over there, on that mountain, right now, it is raining. See there? … right over there …

And then if I look over this way, [pans left] I see the results of today’s rain on the ground. The ground is kind of wet; see there? Wet ground; look at that; way wet for this area. (This is a semi-arid area.) …

Look here: Someone has left a stainless steel bowl on the ground, in the parking lot, that has accumulated water in it, from the rain. And that will be good for the coyotes that live right around here to drink tonight.

… because if one person could wish for this, and then actually have it happen … or two people could, as was the case yesterday … then what would happen if ten people in Los Angeles decided to do this … especially men. Men are especially good at this kind of thing, because of the strength of their will power and the directness of their intention.
