Reading ‘Nature Spirits and What they Say’, (interviews with Verena Stael von Holstein), I am intrigued by the High One talking about ‘harmonious elemental beings’. It seems that there is a universal law that “beings in one dimension can not assist beings in another dimension unless the request or invitation comes from the dimension wishing to receive the assistance”. Invoking sacred space allows good beings to enter. This provides them with a space in which to grow and develop. “That’s one of the main tasks of religious ritual – the creation of spaces into which elemental beings and higher beings can enter. Beings always require space, and space created on Earth always gets filled with beings”.
As I write, I sense the High One here with me – wanting to tell me more. It is remarkable how strong its presence is, how easy to sense, when it wants to make itself felt. I don’t need to do anything specific to invite it in – communication is instantaneous, it’s like I just hand over my pen. My focus of inquiry is clearly these elemental beings and how they interact with space created by humans. Here’s what it says:
“There are no words or concepts to describe these elemental beings. They are eager to work with humans at this time. Without humans, much of this work is impossible. It touches not only the human realm, and the developmental future of Earth, but also the development of the very potential that underlies the weave of the Kosmos.
The work of your friend Ria is very important, because it concerns creating the conditions for humans to learn how to consciously and intentionally create spaces and invite these beings in. (see note 1 below)
Development happens in chains. I can speak to you of this matter now that you have been reading Verena’s words. They have created an opening into inquiry in you, through which I can enter in the form of relevant information. This is why it is important that you read – and write. The world-wide web is a tool which can be used for good and ill – use it to publish what you write about what you learn, and it will contribute to the awakening of more humans to this work.
Humans are crucial to this work. You are the freedom of the Kosmos. Your freedom is radically augmented when you awaken to self and understand that your consciousness opens up on infinite spiritual space – and is not just home to your fleeting, self-based impressions. As you open up, and invite others into intentional space, you create ‘bounded enclosures’ into which elemental beings can enter and grow. If you are able to interact with them also, this accelerates their development and augments the power of their work as you apply the insights you gain from them in the pursuit of your earthly lives. So can Earth reflect Heaven.
When calling sacred space into being, invocation is key. What you invoke is what will become present. For example, in the case of your work with the Green Witch, when you witness the coherence and wholeness of a spatial entity – even when you are looking out the window of a train – you invoke a being which can enter that space and vivify and awaken a community of the beings already present in that place. As the spirit of place becomes stronger, so the likelihood that the humans that inhabit it, or come into relationship with it in some way, will start to hear it, to interact with it in growthful ways.
The gathering soon to be held in Kufunda village will be pivotal (see note 2 below). The presence of these awakened humans and their intent to harvest their learning and publish it can create a big new potential for elemental beings to be invited in. All of the work, also, of the Art of Hosting community holds this potential. The more the hosting teams can become aware of the power for good that they can unleash by initially invoking elemental beings to enter the space they open up, the greater the likelihood that cascading evolutionary intelligence can arise in the human community at this time of greatest danger and opportunity.
You are especially gifted in articulating the impulses offered to you by the elemental beings who accept your invitation to show up. You can do this in many different contexts. For example, in the forthcoming gathering of women moving the edge – which could most auspiciously be held at Kasteel Nieuwenhoven – there will be a first opportunity to consciously hold a gathering with the explicit focus of invoking and working with a whole host of elemental beings who will cluster around such a ‘gravity well’, seeking to enter relationship and bring their offerings into the light.
Relevance is all. We can offer you only that which resonates with what you already hold. This is why diversity is desirable – it expands the available pool of ‘hooks’ that can draw in contributions from the invisible realms. Remember your question “What has it not yet occurred to us to ask?””
More background from Verena: Connections with these elemental beings have been a long time in preparation. They are now more clearly emerging because humans are only now, at least in a rudimentary way, able to discover their self. And a group of people can create the appropriate spiritual spaces for them. The beings themselves have obviously exised for a long while beyond time. Though they’ve only been appearing in the human sphere since the development of the human consciousness soul and the end of the dark time (Kali Yuga – lasted until the end of the 19th Century)
Note 1 – Ria Baeck, co-initiator of Women Moving the Edge, is developing models, based on years of action research through work with women’s circles, mapping out the journey that a circle of individuals can take to become, firstly, a ‘circle of presence‘, and then a ‘circle of co-creation‘
