The Elemental Kingdom
There are four basic elements of nature: fire, air, earth,
and water. Within each of the four elements are nature spirits
that are the spirital 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.
The 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 ofthem is a specialist in creating some specific
form whether it be an electron or interstellar space.
Elementals 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."
They take their orders from the devas.
They do not remain individualized as humans are. These beings
are animated by the thought power of the lower angels and so are
thought forms of sorts.
They 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 be frosser 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.
They 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.

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.
The 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 awe-inspiring in appearance.
Salamanders 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.
It 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.
Sylphs often assume human form but only for short periods of time.
The 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. The 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 theose who use their minds, particularly those on creative
The 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.
The 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.
The 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.
The 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
