are four basic elements of nature: fire, air, earth, and water.
Within each of the four elements are nature spirits that are the
spiritual essence of that element. They are made up of etheric
substance that is unique and specific to their particular element.
They are living entities oftentimes resembling humans in shape
but inhabiting a world of their own.
beings in the Elemental Kingdom work primarily on the mental plane
and are known as "builders of form." Their specialty
is translating thought-forms into physical forms by transforming
mental patterns into etheric and then physical patterns. Each
of them is a specialist in creating some specific form whether
it be an electron or interstellar space.
range in size from smaller than an electron to vaster than galactic
space. Like the angels, elemental beings begin their evolution
small in size and increase their size as they evolve. The elementals
serving on planet Earth materialize whatever they pick up from
the thoughts and feelings of mankind. This relationship was intended
to facilitate the remanifestation of "heaven on Earth."
take their orders from the devas.
do not remain individualized as humans are. These beings are animated
by the thought power of the lower angels and so are thought forms
may be etheric thoughts forms, yet they have etheric flesh, blood,
and bones. They live, propagate off spring, eat, talk, act, and
sleep. They cannot be destroyed by grosser material elements such
as fire, air, earth, and water because they are etheric in nature.
They are not immortal. When their work is finished they are absorbed
back into the ocean of spirit. They do live a very long time--300
to 1,000 years.
have the power to change their size and appearance almost at will.
They cannot, however, change elements.
The nature spirits of the Earth are called Gnomes. There are male
and female gnomes. In our daily lives, we come in contact with
the male, because the female almost always stays at home.

The salamanders are the spirit of fire. Without these beings,
fire cannot exist. You cannot light a match without a salamander's
being present. There are many families of salamanders, differing
in size, appearance, and dignity. Some people have seen them as
small balls of light, but most commonly they are perceived as
being lizard-like in shape and about a foot or more in length.
salamanders are considered the strongest and most powerful of
all the elementals. Their ruler is a magnificent flaming being
called Djin. Those who have seen him say that he is terrible,
yet we - inspiring in appearance.
have the ability to extend their size or diminish it, as needed.
If you ever need to light a campfire in the wilderness, call to
the salamanders and they will help you.
has also been said that salamanders (and the other elemental beings)
can be mischievous at times. For example, a fiery temper and inharmonious
conditions in a person's home can cause these beings to make trouble.
They are like children in that they don't fully understand the
results of their actions. They are greatly affected, as are all
nature spirits, by human humankind's thinking.
The sylphs are the air spirits. Their element has the highest
vibratory rate of the four (beside earth, fire, water). They live
hundreds of years, often reaching one thousand and never seeming
to get old. They are said to live on the tops of mountains. The
leader of the sylphs is a being called Paralda who is said to
dwell on the highest mountain of Earth.
often assume human form but only for short periods of time. They
vary in size from being as large as a human to being much smaller.
They are volatile and changeable. The winds are their particular
vehicle. They work through the gases and ethers of the Earth and
are kindly toward humans. They are usually seen with wings, looking
like cherubs or fairies. Because of their connection to air, which
is associated with the mental aspect, one of their functions is
to help humans receive inspiration. The sylphs are drawn to those
who use their minds, particularly those on creative arts.
undines are the elemental beings that compose water. They are
able to control, to a great degree, the course and function of
the water element. Etheric in nature, they exist within the water
itself and this is why they can't be seen with the normal physical
vision. These beings are beautiful to look at and are very graceful.
They are often seen riding the waves of the ocean. They can also
be found in rocky pools and in marshlands. They are clothed in
a shimmery substance looking like water but shinning with all
the colors of the sea, with green predominating. The concept of
the mermaid is connected with these elemental beings.
undines also work with the plants that grow under the water and
with the motion of water. Some undines inhabit waterfalls; others
live in rivers and lakes. Every fountain has its nymph. Every
ocean has its oceanids. The undines closely resemble humans in
appearance and size, except for those inhabiting smaller streams
and ponds. The undines often live in coral caves under the ocean
or on the shores of lakes or banks of rivers. Smaller undines
live under lily pads.
undines work with the vital essences and liquids of plants, animals,
and human beings. They are present in everything containing water.
There are many families of undines, as the chart indicates. The
ruler of the undines is a being called Necksa. The undines love,
serve, and honor her unceasingly. They are emotional beings, very
friendly and open to being of service to human beings.
smaller undines are often seen as winged beings that people have
mistakenly called fairies. Those winged beings are seen near flowers
that grow in watery areas. They have gossamer wings and gossamer
