This is a picture of the Fairy Kingdom. Faeries, the fae, elementals – so many different names for our fairy friends!
I want to share with you a picture of the Fairy Kingdom, that is, some of the Fairies and Elementals in this very special, mystical world - at least the ones we know about!
These wonderful beings are in abundance in our everyday lives, but we usually take no notice of them, or worse yet, we ignore them!
With our busy and technological lives, this aspect of living in harmony with nature and the wonderful beings that inhabit it, is rapidly fading away.
Now is the time to reconnect, communicate with and appreciate our fairy friends.
The four elements are fire, earth, air and water, and the members of the Fairy Kingdom belong to one of these elements. This is why they are also commonly known as Elementals.
Salamanders Fires, explosions, lightening, solar energy, candlelight – anything to do with fire and heat is within the Salamander's jurisdiction. They are very dynamic, explosive and difficult to comprehend. They can help humans with healing, creativity, courage and transformation. Salamanders can also arouse passion and warmth, which in turn enriches our daily lives.
The King of the Salamanders is a magnificent being called Djinn.
The Archangel associated with the Fire Element is Michael. The Zodiac signs belonging to the Fire Element are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
Gnomes Gnomes create and maintain all earth-related substances; crystals, stones, plants, flowers, trees etc… There are no female Gnomes. They are reclusive, master magicians and help humans to maintain a healthy, balanced physical body. Gnomes can assist us by providing lucky breaks or opportunities, helping us to develop our innate magical abilities and renewing a deep respect for the Earth and all her natural resources.
The King of the Gnomes is the delightfully mischievous Ghob.
I would imagine that the fearsome Irish Pooka would fall into this category.
The Archangel associated with the Earth Element is Auriel. The Earth Zodiac signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
Sylphs From whispering breezes to mighty gales – this is the realm of the Sylphs. Thought processes, creativity and education are just some of the areas that these beings can help us with. They work closely with the angelic realm and particularly love children. Sylphs can also assist us to tap into the available universal wisdom and healing abilities. Of the entire Fairy Kingdom, these beautiful beings most resemble our popular vision of a fairy; ethereal, twinkling and delicate.
The King of the Sylphs is the eloquent Paralda.
The Archangel associated with the Air Element is Raphael. The Zodiac signs of the Air element are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
Undines The Undine's domain is all forms of water – from rain to oceans, from tears to fountains. They can help us connect to our dreams, deepest hopes and fears. Undines have strong intuitive, clairvoyant and magical abilities and, if so inclined, can grant these powers to humans. Mermaids and mermen, water nymphs and water sprites all belong to the Water Elemental group. They often communicate with us during our dreamtime.
The King of the Undines is the eternally wise Niksa.
The Archangel associated with the Water Element is Gabriel. The Zodiac signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces fall under the Water element.
Respect, kindness and generosity would be the words that spring to mind when trying to communicate with the Fairy Kingdom.
All members of the Fairy realm are suspicious and wary of humans. They long to help and interact with us, but because of the damage being done to their environment and the Earth in general, they are afraid.
Here are some of my top tips for communicating and befriending Fairies in your local environment. I'm sharing them with you because they work!
There are a few subtle signs that will tell you a member of the Fairy Kingdom is nearby.
If any of these has happened to you – congratulations! You have probably had a close encounter of the Fairy kind!

"Great are the blessings that will come of treating the fairies well. They are, for instance, very fond of good wines, and in the olden times great princes and chiefs would always be leaving out a keg of wine overnight, and always in the morning the keg would be drained. Cynical folks will say, of course, that a keg might easily be drained by others than fairies, and that anyone who would be foolish enough to leave out a keg of wine at night might expect to find it none other than empty in the morning. But cynics will not be reading this..."
