Gnomes and the like are all called Nature People, and they do exist. As a child I would often see them running through the house. When they noticed me
noticing them, they would stop and stand still, waving and smiling at me. I found that I could only see them peripherally; when I looked directly at
where they were, they were gone. I would spend several minutes moving my head and eyes slowly about, trying to determine the best viewing angle. All
the while, they would stay in place, patiently waiting for me to tire, as I inevitably did. The frustration of not being able to look right at them
and clearly see their tantalizing details is fresh to this day.
Similarly, as an adult, I recall having a dream in which I was with my mother in her backyard. I was speaking with several elves before me, while she,
her back to me on my right, was chatting with a swarm (a flock?) of blue fairies in the branches of a tree. They glowed with a vibrant blue light,
emanating from their cores. The next morning, I spoke with her. Without preamble, I asked, "Weren't the blue fairies fascinating?" "Oh, yes!" she
quickly responded, "I couldn't get over the beautiful light they gave off. But, wait a minute. I thought that was a dream. Were you there?"
"Yes," I said, "I was standing right behind you talking to the elves." To this she replied, "There were elves there? I was so caught up with the
fairies that I didn't even notice them. Or you!"
This rare example of a dream-time experience corroborated, with matching details, has, for me, strengthened my faith in the accuracy of my childhood
memories. What little I could find in the way of researchable materials tell me that Nature People live in what is called the Aetheric Plane. My
understanding is that the human aura is an aetheric energy, and that people who can see them can also see and communicate with Nature People.
In closing, I'd like to point out that it seems that every fantastic being found in lore actually exists: gnomes, brownies, elves, fairies,
mer-people, unicorns, dragons, ogres, trolls.... Apparently, when we tune into their plane of existence, much like a radio tunes in a particular
station, we can and do see them. We live among them, blithely unaware.
