THE MAGICAL BEINGS OF WINTER


The whole universe is united. And, as such, the nature of this planet also has its correlations, not only of information but also of correspondences.


Since ancient times the mythology of all cultures speaks of magical beings, also called elementals, which govern every moment of Mother Nature. Beings who on many occasions help human beings, but who are also willing to make life more difficult for them with their mischief.

I don't think it's a coincidence that I started this blog at this stage, because it's in the energy North, in the midnight of the spirit and the light of the pentagram where all that is, begins.


These creatures are divided into five kingdoms. Four of them are known: air, fire, water and earth. The different types of elementals belong for the most part to these four kingdoms.


However, there is also the fifth element that unites and governs the other four: the Ether. There are magical creatures of this fifth element although less known. However, today I want to talk to you about the magic force of winter. Soon we’re all going to be in the Winter Solstice, or Yule, the birth of the King Star. It is the entrance to the winter that lasts, as we all know, until spring.

On December 21st we will enter, where Nature falls asleep, and the energy becomes introverted. There is no activity as in summer, plants are collected, many trees are left bare and their energy goes inside. It is the same with energy forces; it is time for hibernation. That is why the magical beings that belong to winter are the elementals of earth. Everything returns to earth, Mother Nature needs a time of reflection and rest.


Nature falls asleep, and the energy becomes introverted. The currents of energy are slow, below the surface and just as everything is born in darkness, are moments of beginning and conception.

What does this mean?

That the currents of energy are slow, below the surface. And just as everything is born in darkness, are moments of beginning and conception. It is a time of protection and conservation of the energy working only on personal matters that involve you, because you need to of recollection.



It is at this time that you can work with elementals such as gnomes, goblins and some elves. You can also work with what we call the souls of plants, trees, animals and stones that can help you according to their purposes.


For example in this period you can work with an oak tree to get strength ; any kind of with ivy, for flexibility in any situation, and with rock crystal to enhance some of your strengths, or simply with salt to purify or clean.


I give you an example of a ritual to do with the Winter elves, taken from the book Magic with D.J. Conway's moon.


For this celebration you will need:

- Ginger powder and a small spoon. - Four candles: yellow in the East, red in the South, blue in the West and green in the North. - 4 quartzes to put next to each candle

You should be in the centre of the room.

Tune in: Oh! Small in every way. Show yourselves to me, I ask you. No harm will come from me. Introduce me to friendship and love. Rejoice with me in ancient magic. Together with the Old Gods. We can turn all things into gold. Guardian spirits, beautiful observers. Our lives are united. We share all things.

Go to the East. Splash some ginger on the candle and say:

All you nature spirits and goblins. Listen to my call. Enter into this magic circle. Welcome all. Go to the South, sprinkle with ginger and say All of you Little ones from the rays of the sun Listen to my call. Enter this magical circle. Welcome all.

Go to the West, sprinkle with ginger and say

All you nymphs and water spirits. Listen to my call. Enter this magical circle. Welcome all. End by heading North. Splash ginger and say: All of you Little Ones of the Moonbeams Hear my call. Enter the magic circle. Welcome all.

Sit quietly for a while, thinking of the Little Ones. Perhaps you will hear voices or you feel heat from its rays of light. Talk to them if you wish. When you are finished, stand up in the centre of the room. He raises his arms and ends up saying:

Thank you and blessings. For those of Air, Earth, Sky and Sea.


This is a beautiful work to do and to verify that these creatures that we know by folklore and that we considered them a myth. However, they are energetic forces that if we respect, they can help us a lot in our daily life.
