How to Connect with the Elemental Realm

Fairies- more specifically.

Originally posted by witchyexperiments

As promised, here is a post on how to connect with the elemental realm. Please bear in my mind that this is based on personal experience and knowledge. I’m mainly focusing on fairies here because as far as I know, they’re the easiest nature spirit to connect with.

Recently, fairies have been making themselves more and more known, especially to those who are into spiritual practices because the Earth is in desperate need of help and the nature spirits need all of us to listen to their messages and take care of our home, so connecting with them isn’t “as hard” so to speak, as it was in previous years.

A few guidelines before attempting to make a connection:

  • One of the most important things to know is to go in with pure intention and an open heart. This is very important as they radiate on a level of love energy, so going in with love and purity in your heart is very beneficial when wanting to connect with any being of the elemental realm. Doing heart chakra meditations or exercises can certainly help with this. Connect using your heart.
  • Make an intention. Promise the fairies that you’ll help them in one way or another, whether this be doing an earth meditation to help the state it’s currently in, or simply going around in nature and picking up trash. Promise that you’ll do these things, and act upon them. This is important as it lets the fairies see that you mean it and shows them you’re respectful of their wishes and their home.
  • Have a sense of play and humor! See them through the eyes of a little child. The fairies are very playful and love to laugh and play practical jokes. Don’t be bummed out if your keys are missing, take things with a grain of salt and attempt to make a connection with laughter in your heart.

In order to connect:

  • You can do so by meditating, and this is especially effective if it’s in the forest or anywhere near nature. You could even have one or two (or more!) plants around you as the fairies are guardians of nature and plants carry them wherever they are. You can also make a fairy altar or house, some place outside or near plants for them to reside in.
  • You could simply affirm and invite them in your life through intention; read books on fairies, watch movies having to do with fairies or other nature spirits, surround yourself in the energy of the elementals.
  • The most effective way is to go outside and spend time in nature. Play in the meadows, bathe in the rivers, rest your back against a tree and just be still. 
  • Keep in mind that if you constantly shout or get frustrated and whine that “I want to see the fairies! Where are the fairies!? I want to see them!” They more than likely will hide and not show themselves or attempt to make a connection with you. Please be respectful. Especially of their home.  
  • Come bearing gifts; they adore them! This could be anything from mead, honey, milk, fairy sugar, berries, sweet wine or crystals they seem to resonate with (such as amethyst, rose quartz, fluorite, and I’ve noticed they’re very into blue goldstone as well). 
  • Last but not least, allow them to connect with you! Don’t let any fears of not being able to connect with them become a block to them doing so.

“Fey are spirits bound into a fleshly form. They have skeletons but no naturally occurring internal organs or muscles as humans know them. They have blood of a sort, as all living things must, but they do not pump it though their systems by physical means. Instead, each has a hollow chamber within its ribcage that holds its heart, the focus of its soul. A fey heart is composed of energy, but it takes the illusory (figment) form of some symbol that represents the state of the fey’s soul. Each fey heart is different. Ashee may have a glowing gemstone or a golden acorn, while a grogan might have a ball of brambles. Afey heart is the pattern that ties the spirit to the flesh, and its blood is the conduit that translates the will of that soul into action. Of course this heart is rarely if ever seen by others, but the fey knows it’s there. It is a symbol that may recur in dealing with the individual or in his idioms, and he may bestow a gift that resembles it upon any he cares for. When a fey creature dies, its soul enters its heart, which then leaves his body in an ethereal form. Cast about on the winds of the Ethereal Plane, the lost fey soul begins to dissolve. Over time, this fragile soul will be torn apart completely, and it will be as if the fey had never existed”- The complete guide to fey

A late-thirteenth century Norwegian law attempted to suppress the belief that land spirits lived in groves, mounds and waterfalls. Yet a fourteenth-century account reports that women continued to take food into caves or to stone piles (cairns) where they would consecrate the food to the spirits and then eat it. They did this in the belief that they would be favoured by them, and become more prosperous.

In Greek Mythology, the Leimoniads were nymphs of the water-meadows - pastures thick with lush grass and flowers. They were originally thought to be a type of Okeanis Nymph, who presided over the sources of fresh water: both earthly, the streams and fountains, and heavenly, moist breezes and rain-clouds.

They were daughers of Okeanos, the earth-encircling fresh-water stream ,and his wife the titaness Tethys, as well as sisters of the River-Gods. (X)

I had a bittersweet interaction with a dying pine tree in my backyard today. I touched its trunk and looked up toward the top, just spacing out, and then I got these flashes of impressions.

It was passive and peaceful with a slow, labored life force (like an old elephant?); it was aware and fairly accepting of its end. I could have sworn I felt for a moment the wind in its upper branches as if it were in my hair.
