Elementals are the physical incarnations of earth, air, fire, and water. Some are Fairies, Sylphs, mermaids, and salamanders. Paracelsus first spoke of elementals in the 16th century and they have held a place in myths and stories throughout history. In the present day, indigenous cultures revere them and they have meaning in the occult and new age realms. You may connect with elementals through your intuition and use them in creative ways to connect to energies and learn more about your spirit.
