Receiving gifts from the Elementals

 

I feel a great desire to become one with nature, to connect, communicate and co-create with all of nature and the Elementals.

As so often on my journey this intention manifests in very different ways than I thought. My mind grabbed onto the idea of exchanging questions and answers through telepathic communication with plants, animals, minerals and Elementals like animal communicators seem to do. I learned that communication with nature and elementals can happen in many different ways.

Connecting and communicating with trees

Kent Park, IA

On a walk through Kent Park near Iowa City, IA, a ranger pointed out a 500 year old swamp oak. He encouraged me to check the tree out because of his age. The next day I visited her and had my first conscious experience of connecting with a tree.

When I stood near her I could feel her energy radiating around me and my first thought was to merge with her energy. However, I was playing in Mastering Alchemy at the time and we were just told again how big we are as beings. So I decided to match her energy. Wow, I matched her energy and she extended her energy field. I match it again and she radiated further. We played until I felt that my energy field encompassed most of the park area. It was powerful experience. From then on I called her Unlimited.

Over the next two years I had some wonderful experiences with Unlimited. One that stood out was a day where I felt very unbalanced. I tried to let go thinking of a person who I was upset with. I tried to ground and become calm but my mind kept going back to the incident. When I came to Unlimited I asked her what she knew about grounding. I didn’t really expect anything. Within a minute I felt energy draining from the top of my head through my whole body into the ground, leaving me calm and centered. It was so visceral that I couldn’t miss it and my mouth dropped open.

Ever since I noticed how trees helped me to calm down when I feel frustrated, upset, despair… I know because I keep yawing during my hike through the woods or leaning against a tree. Yawning is one of the ways I move energy through and out my body.

Unlimited helped me to open my awareness about trees. There were two more oaks in Kent Park that drew my attention. I called them Samson and Delilah. I soon discovered that when I would lean against Samson he would take me onto visual journeys. He would take me to meet with other guides such as unicorns, light beings and Jack the watcher, a physical horse I know of. The journeys would give me insights into my current situation. Since then I have partnered with other trees on these fun journeys.

Being in communion with other species

I was enrolled in an online class called Waterhole Rituals with Carolyn Resnick. The first ritual is sharing territory with a horse. You sit in the pasture with your horse without needing anything from the horse. Just sharing space and through that allowing the horse to know you while you learn to become more present. Carolyn talked about being in communion with the horse.

During the class I had no access to horses but the idea to sit in communion with another species resonated deeply. So I took a camping chair and walked into the woods. Here I found a quiet space under trees near a brook. I allowed myself to relax and become quiet. Listening to the different sounds of the water running over stones, moving in shallow areas and around corners. It felt like the water was running through my body, cleansing and vitalizing every space in it. I returned from this communion refreshed and in awe of the experience.

Another time a friend of mine took me to Quiet Reflections Retreat. This retreat located in North Carolina has a chapel on top of a mountain. When I walked into the chapel the energy I experienced felt like I was flying right into the mountain opposite the chapel. My whole body started buzzing with energy. It took a while for my body to balance and the buzzing to calm down. Then I sat to commune with the mountain. For me mountains have a special powerful energy and this mountain seemed to fill up my whole body and anchor its energy in my heart. I felt strong and happy and started toning, expressing my love for the beauty of this mountain. I felt the energy for days in my heart and anchored some of it when we opened the Gateway to nature in the Pollinator Garden.

Connecting with nature through playIMG_0127-Single stone structure river

A friend pointed me to Michael Grab. Michael Grab creates beautiful stone sculptures in nature. He inspired me to do try it myself. So next time I walked along the Laurel River Trail near Hot Springs NC I got creative. It was so much fun to balance stones on each other and explore what angles are possible. I liked the idea that wind and rain would most likely erase these structures so that someone else can be creative.IMG_0115-Mandala Sand no shade

I also remembered my love for mandalas and used the natural treasures along the riverbed to leave some unexpected beauty for others to enjoy.

This form of play evolved along with the MEGs. I have used stones and other natural material to create structures that support the opening and anchoring of energy such as the Pollinator Garden. I also laid some mandalas to honor the beauty the Elementals create all around us.

Receiving gifts from the ElementalsIMG_0622 Bark Horse head 1

I love walking in woods and on mountains. Beside the everyday amazing beauty of colors, forms, smells and sounds, there are days when I feel the elementals surprise me with special gifts. IMG_0642 Bark horse head 2These gifts come in many forms: bird feathers, colorful, sparkling rocks, faces on trees, hidden blooming plans. Some I take home, others I admire. These two horse heads made me laugh out loud in surprise and felt like a special gift for me to take home.

Clean water for the Earth

Energy Grid to anchor a vision of clean water for the Earth
My friend Laura wanted to support the water in Yancey County, NC and have the example radiate through all of North Carolina and the rest of the Earth. 

The overall vision was to have clean, pure water in Yancey County. The water supporting the health of the humans and the Earth and being respected by all humans. The awareness of the importance of water and the desire to support it spreading reaching all humans on the Earth.

The grid assembled in three layers.

Water Grid step 1The 1st layer: represented the original blueprint of the water, where it comes from, how life evolved from it. 

We started with the center: The flower of life radiating the energies, on top a glass with water that was charged three days before with energy from a meditation meeting. 

Next we expressed the beginning of water and life on the planet. Lower right corner: The ocean (Mermaid), the ocean card (ebb and flow), the first single cells (moss). We moved on to the upper right corner with plants on land (mint plant)

  • Center: The spiral around the center – evolution of life
  • Left middle: Two crystals on the left connecting to the universe crystallized water
  • Left upper corner: The influence of the whole universe/planets (three balls) and the non-physical world (Angel, Wisdom of the unseen world cards)
  • Right upper corner: Water is essential for our food: The importance of pollinators to help water create vegetables: (Luna moth and vegetables)
  • Top middle: Flowers representing beauty that comes from water – Fairies and magic involved with water and food
  • Left lower corner: Elementals: Undines who are the water creating with salamander, gnomes and sylphs (three pure light elementals)

When this layer completed, the energies I felt were: clarity, origin, purity and wisdom.

Water Grid step 22nd layer: This layer seemed to focus on what humans can do. This was mostly expressed in words or phrases written on paper 

  • Using products that are biodegradable, recyclable, supportive of health for planet and humans 
  • Bringing respect, communication, and awe to the water, the elementals and all of nature
  • Humans in co-creation/partnership with elementals (doll placed beside the elementals) 
  • Joy and connection with fairies (resulted in more fairies were placed into top middle)– 
  • Beauty and harmony with water and all of life (resulted in more veggies in upper right corner).
  • My friend drew the Iceberg card from the Magic Earth Card Set: Iceberg – Submerged: It pointed us into two directions. That the icebergs are melting thereby releasing much of the information stored in the ice. The word submerged reminded us that we know so much more than we are aware of. We felt that through joy and playfulness we can connect to this wisdom with ease. 
  • To the center spiral we added the knowledge of Rudolph Steiner and other humans who know how to grow sustainable, biodynamic, organic – the intention is that we remember and practice this knowledge
  • We placed the icosahedron template from the Gateway into Nature with the vegetables, connecting the Pollinator Garden with this energy grid
  • We placed candles to support this enlightenment

With this the 2nd layer completed, we felt a strong all to connect the energy grid to the universe.

Water Grid step 33rd layer: Connecting the energy on the grid to the universe 

  • Bottom middle: We lit the candles on the Angel to bring in light 
  • Center: Iron structure – Connecting heaven and Earth
  • Center: We hung representations for the four elementals:
    Gnomes: pine cone – trees as antennas connecting heaven and earth
    Sylphs: feather – air/gas on Earth and in the universe,
    Salamander: crystal chain – undifferentiated light,
    Undines – dragonfly  

Earth magic cards placed around the outer edges of the energy grid completed the energetic container to anchor the vision for clean water for the Earth.

Here is Laura’s testimonial:
I deeply appreciate Freya’s skill in setting energetic templates. Both the work she and I accomplished at the pollinator garden and clean water grid we created on a lovely rainy day contain powerful, beautiful and sustaining energies for Nature.  I’m grateful to be enjoying our collaborations, and curious what comes next.  Laura, Burnsville, NC

Anchoring Energy – Gateway into Nature

Butterfly on FlowersA friend of mine was asked to create a Pollinator Garden in the public Cane River Park near Burnsville, NC. I felt called to open an energy portal during for the Pollinator Garden and the bigger area around it.

www.quietreflectionsretreat.orgBefore my friend started the garden, she took me to the nearby Quiet Reflections Retreat. We went to the chapel on the mountain where I set in communion with the mountain. In the chapel I received energy that was later anchored in the Pollinator Garden. 

Pollinator garden three stone structures cutDuring the first workday at the Pollinator Garden, volunteers prepared the soil for the upcoming planting. When the workday concluded, I felt drawn to build three stone structures and placed stones like antennas in every mount in the Pollinator Garden. This prepared the area for the energy portal. I could feel energy buzzing through my body ready to be anchored. The energy flowing through my heart felt like the energy the mountain shared with me at the Quiet Reflections Retreat a week earlier.Pollinator Garden Antennas

After discussing the purpose of the garden and the park with two of my friends we decided that the overall intention would be to create a Gateway to Nature. 

Icosahedron ParkSacred geometries such as a triangle, tetrahedron, or icosahedron create energetic containers for intentions and energetics in a creation process. I created four paper icosahedrons that expressed the energies we had discussed for the Pollinator Garden, Cane River Park, the humans visiting the park, and for the bigger area around the park. Here is one of the icosahedrons I made for the Pollinator Garden:Pollinator Garden Icosahedron template

Together with my friend and another women I placed the four icosahedrons into the ground, one on three corners of the garden and one in the center. This way the positions of the icosahedrons created a tetrahedron. 

Before we finished for the day, I felt something was off with the path that led through the garden. This particular path stopped near the end without leading out of the garden. My friend and I decided to extend the path so that it led out of the garden. 

The moment the opening was in place, I felt the energy shift and started yawning, a sign of energy release. My friend felt a huge pressure in her head; her way to sense the stuck energy starting to flow. For half an hour I kept yawning, “seeing” the energy being released from that particular spot. I went for a walk in the woods asking the trees to help with this energy release. 

After two weeks of buzzing with energy my body calmed down and I could feel the garden integrating new energy. The Gateway to Nature was in place. 

Pollinator Garden wood structureDuring a second workday we planted most of the plants. I felt drawn to create several new stone structures and one arrangement assembled from pieces of wood I found in the park. They are a reminder of the beauty the elementals create in all parts of nature. Pollinator Garden 2 Wood structure

The Park now is blooming, attracting Pollinators such as bees, butterflies, other insects and birds. I feel honored having been part of creating this habitat for wild life.
