Nature Spirits

Nature Deities In mythology, nature spirits, or deities are composed of etheric matter. Their job is to build and maintain the plant kingdom while working in conjunction with the devas and elementals. They are said to have been here since the beginning of time, have created the landscape of reality, which we return to for different reasons as guided. The term nature deity typically refers to the concept of gods or goddesses in mythology associated with various perceived "forces of nature". They feature commonly in polytheistic religions, and may include characteristics of the mother goddess, Mother Nature or lord of the animals. Adherents may literally consider such deities to be divine beings that control particular natural phenomena. An objective view understands these to be mythological personifications of particular phenomena, such that attach personal qualities such as character and name to such phenomena, and conversely illustrate conceptual persons (archetypes) as owning particular and powerful traits. Deva is a Sanskrit word for angel and means shining divine being or god. Its modern use in the Western Mystery tradition is to denote those particular angels who are concerned primarily with the creation and evolution of the forms of nature. The smaller etheric beings that we term nature spirits work under the direction of the devas and can be understood to be aspects or specialised projections of the devas themselves, like cells in a body, just as all devas are aspects or projections of the Universal Deva, the One God. The world of devas and nature spirits form a complementary brother-sisterhood of life and line of evolution to that of mankind, and have a special function to perform in the universe and on our planet. They overlight and pervade all nature. Nature could not manifest and evolve without the help of the devas and their subordinates, the nature spirits. Sooner or later we have to recognise this, so that we can consciously co-operate with these spiritual beings in creating and evolving all natural forms of life and consciousness towards a state of enlightenment and beauty. Landscape angels belong to this category of devas. These are those angels that oversee the creation and evolution of the landscape, such as landscape temples with their chakra systems, landscape zodiacs, and individual chakras and power points in the landscape. It is possible to become aware of, recognise, work with and learn from the devas. They are our friends and, if we listen, our teachers. We also have things to teach and share usefully with them. Working together, we could create paradise on earth.
