­Nature serves as a portal to the interdimensional realms of universal intelligence.

As with all the natural aspects, some people are more predisposed to connect with the elementals than others. Some can see them physically while others recognize that elementals are present by seeing unexplained tiny colored lights, especially in their peripheral vision, or evening hearing tiny bells. Others encounter these nature spirits through their intuitive channels, like the ability to hear them in their mind’s ear.

Caring for the natural world and a sincere intention to connect deeply with nature is one of the best ways to attract and connect with the elementals. You can also create an inviting and hospitable environment for them by putting out a fairy house, shiny trinkets, fruits, and sweets. Placing small statues or likenesses of elementals, like garden gnomes, lets them know they are welcome.

The trees, rocks, plants, and landscapes do convey messages to us. The key is to expect the possibility of having an interaction with them that is intelligent and profound.

The more that we consciously put ourselves in situations with nature, the more these mystical experiences happen. I’ve found that they most often occur when we’re at a pivotal transition point in life, or in a place of surrender where we’re able to say, “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t know what to do. I don’t have any more answers. I’ve done everything I can and now I’m open to the Divine coming through in any way—be it through the wisdom of a tree, an animal, an angel, or an element such as fire or wind.”

Do you need to believe in the mystical aspect of nature to have magical experiences? Not at all. The life force energy that moves through all of creation is so powerful it doesn’t need you to believe in it. Personally, if I’m not seeing magic and awe in my life, I know that it’s time to get out in nature. I realize that I’m not going to create anything profound in my life or be able to share anything truly meaningful with others if I’m creating from a space of stagnancy that is devoid of life force. None of us can, really. Thank goodness that we can partner with nature to release, be sourced, and return to our vibrant selves.

As we connect to our heart space through our admiration, curiosity, and wonder of the natural realm, our breath naturally slows and deepens, activating our heart coherence. This heart coherence serves as a bridge to the quantum field, our source for infinite possibilities. Nature serves as a conduit to our human development and expansion.

As a physical embodiment of life force energy, nature can serve as a tangible representation with which we can connect to those unseen, interdimensional, high-vibrational allies for insight, wisdom, healing, guidance, inspiration, protection, and more. This allows for a deeper connection to the Divine through nature.

The natural world is phenomenal. We have a synergistic relationship with nature for our physical bodies through food, nutrients, medicine, fuel, and a vast assortment of materials. Beyond the physical, we have real allies in the natural realm.

Each human embodied on this planet makes an impact in the ecology around them throughout their lifetime. Humans are also infinite beings embodied in the physical with access to these infinite realms and extrasensory perceptions. The same is true for the beings in the natural realm. They have a physical aspect and role that they play in the circle of life, and they also have access to the unseen realms and energy. We all share this planet, this ecology—we’re all in it together—so it behooves us to connect on all levels, seen and unseen, to create a better world for all of us.
