There are four basic elements of nature:
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.
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
elementals serving on planet Earth materialize whatever they pick up from
the thoughts and feelings of mankind. This relationship was intended to
facilitate the re-manifestation of "heaven on Earth."
They live, propagate off spring, eat, talk, act, and sleep. They cannot be destroyed by 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 cannot, however, change elements.

The sylphs are drawn to those who use their minds, particularly
those on creative arts.
Water - Undines
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 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 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
They have gossamer wings and gossamer clothing.
