Seeing Elementals?


Several summers ago I spent a day swimming in a river here in New Jersey. There is something beautiful about this particular river. When you look at your reflection the light just radiates out.

After a few hours of swimming and sunning I started to make my way home.

As I drove I encountered some rain. I remember just feeling so content but still far from home.

I drove for about an hour I got ahead of the storm.

After returning home I greeted my family

(Who I had invited to go swimming but they had declined). We prepared a meal and enjoyed the rest of the day indoors.

It is now bedtime and I say goodnight to my children. My then husband and I get in bed.

He falls asleep right away. I am laying there listening to the thunder when I see a figure standing in the room near me.

He wasn't a ghost or didn't seem to be.

My best guess is that he was the spirit of lightning? I really don't know. His appearance was that of a Native American Warrior.

I am just not clear on how or why he was there.

Somehow I feel like he is connected to that river.

Several times now I have seen figures when a storm approaches.

Usually I have just seen them pass by. The incidence above was noteworthy, being that it was in my room. And I was a little frightened that actual lightening might strike. Egads!

I spoke about this with a Lakota man I was taking lessons from. He only said it was meant for me to see.

It makes me think that our world is full of things we often do not see. Perhaps I will read a story someday that will explain what I saw.

Hi annieoaktree,

From what I have learned, there are sylphs (fairies) that are a part of the air section, undines (such as merfolk/mermaids) are a part of the water, salamanders that belong to the fire, and I think gnomes belong to earth. They are all elementals/nature spirits. There are many other named nature spirits, but I think those 4 elements are what the nature spirits are connected to.

Since the being looked more human, maybe it could be a a type of earth/gnome elemental? Or air like a fairy?

Also, what if they were one of your spirit guides showing themselves to you? A harmless thing you can do daily at a set time is to ask your spirit guides to appear in front of you. If it's a part of your life plan to see your guides, you will see them, even if it takes a few weeks.

I agree with AnneV, to believe advice of medicine man.

I have a friend who is Sioux Lakota and Choctaw a Heyoka 3rd Generation?
The belief is that the lightning is medicine of a Heyoka.
The tradition follows men.

When I shared a few of my dreams. This man replied that he thought woman can also hear and see lightening dreams.

As women we can also get some of their medicine transfered by objects that Holy Man have given us. My friend the Heyoka man had given me some feathers and I saw and felt the Heyoka Spirit which was attached to the fan of feathers it was amazing and arrived when I needed it.
Dreams appeared backward and lightning came with an amazing energy that opened the crown portion of my head.

There can also be a transfer of energy-aka power from teacher to student.

AnneV, I really enjoyed your comment. There are so many times that I wish I could turn the clock back and see a particular part of the world before it was changed so much by man, and reading your comment gave me a quick flash of that. It is so easy to forget how this wild but beautiful America has been altered by our hands.

Annieoaktree, if you see this man again, I would ask him for a dream or vision, so you can experience it for yourself. As to why you see figures when storms approach, who knows? Perhaps you are tied to elementals in some way, but also the ions in the air change drastically especially with lightning, and I have heard that spirits can use that energy to manifest.

If you're taking lessons from a Lakota man that already shows you have a natural draw and affinity for Native Americans. Long before the white man came with its sprawling destruction, that very river was enjoyed and treasured by the natives. You being open to it and deeply appreciative of its energy and splendor probably resonated with the soul of your visitor. I think it a compliment that he came to visit you. He would not, were you any less of a soul than what you are.
Thanks for sharing.
