Helena Blavatsky was the first to refer to nature spirits as elementals.
“Some classes of elementals… have an intelligence of their own and a character…”
“A plant can be receptive or non-receptive, though every plant without an exception feels and has a consciousness of its own. But besides the latter, every plant—from the gigantic tree down to the minutest fern or blade of grass—has, Occultism teaches us, an Elemental entity of which it is the outward clothing on this plane.”
William Quan Judge further explains...
“As it (the elemental world) is automatic and like a photographic plate, all atoms continually arriving at and departing from the ‘human system’ are constantly assuming the impression conveyed by the acts and thoughts of that person…
“…and therefore, if he sets up a strong current of thought, he attracts elementals in greater numbers, and they all take on one prevailing tendency or color, so that all new arrivals find a homogeneous color or image which they instantly assume.
“On the other hand, a man who has many diversities of thought and meditation is not homogeneous, but, so to say, particolored, and so the elementals may lodge in that part which is different from the rest and go away in like condition. …”
“They move with the velocity of thought. In their world there is no space or time as we understand those terms.”
Penn State University scientist Consuelo M. De Moraes and other researchers are finding that plants behave with the diversity of which Judge speaks concerning elementals.
