The Nature Spirits
International Director and Priest Alyson Lawrence begins a short series on the Fifth Blessing to explore the spiritual mysteries of the natural world – and our relationship with the invisible psychic forces all around us.
In our first installment, we talk about nature spirits – also known as devas, pixies, fairies etc. Do they really exist? What are they? How can we become more aware of them? What do they do?

[ALyson] By striking a match for instance you are in fact summoning a flame deva. You have to look at it the opposite way round. It’s not just chemistry and physics…
The Devic Kingdom is a parallel kingdom and it’s very much dovetailed into the physical plane. It’s similar to the astral planes, if you like; it occupies the same space. It’s not sort of located higher up in the atmosphere.
They are beings – the devas are beings who have astral bodies, if you like; that’s how you could liken it.
Their function is to help the growth of all life on this planet. From the minerals to animal life, the vegetable kingdom and people as well. And they also govern the weather systems on and around our planet.
They really operate in two ways. They use the pranic energies, which are mainly radiated from the sun, and from the other planets as well, and they help the growth of the plants, and that’s why the forests look beautiful because they help (and also they’re away from mankind), but they’re also bound by karmic law to use the energy generated by mankind.
And that is where things can go horribly wrong. So every time we get a hurricane or a typhoon or a flooding it’s because of the wrong thought and action of mankind.
…if we were more advanced we would have perfect conditions on this planet.
Every time we think, we send out an energy, and this energy is in turn manipulated by the Devic Kingdom. They will never break the law; it’s the law of action and reaction. So if we were more advanced we would have perfect conditions on this planet. Everything would flourish. We’d have just the perfect weather. Gentle rain where it’s needed… We wouldn’t get these catastrophes that are happening all around us.
[Darren] So it’s because of the energy that you’re sending to those devic helpers that that would allow them to create more favourable conditions?
[Alyson] Absolutely. And we should be aware of that.
I mean for instance if you go to the forest and you’re away from civilization you can be in touch with the Devic Kingdom.
In fact, it’s only recently that I was in the country and I was with Richard, and we decided to say a prayer to the devas. And after… I designed a prayer and I sent out energy to the devas of that particular location…. suddenly a whole cloud of butterflies leapt into the air and flew out. It was quite an incredible sight. There must have been hundreds of them.
There is a connection. You send your love and there’ll be a response. And the more you send your love to the devas in time they will show themselves.
