How to See Nature Spirits

Hi Friends!

Mark and I were having fun skipping rocks in the creek by our house when I saw a Nature Spirit in the rocks smiling at us. I was so startled when I saw him, and then of course I was so happy! I love to see Nature Spirits! I’ve seen more of them since I’ve been increasing my connection to nature over the past few years. Today I’m going to share with you a few things I’ve learned about Nature Spirits that can help you see them as well!

This is the rock friend I saw by the creek.

There are Nature Spirits in trees, rocks, water, around flowers…wonderful loving spirits all around you. To connect with them, start spending more time in nature. Go for walks and talk to the trees, rocks, water, wind…whatever appeals to you. You can even sit in your garden and do this. It also helps when you show the natural spaces around you love and appreciation.

  • Become aware of the energy of nature and open your mind to the possibility that you can communicate with these wonderful Spirits.

The first time I saw Nature Spirits was when I saw Tree Spirits in Ireland. The faces weren’t physical indentations on the bark of the trees. They appeared as whitish outlines of faces superimposed on the tree trunks. Mark and I both saw them, and it was very exciting!

Then, I asked my Spirit Guides to help me see gnomes and fairies. I saw my first gnome in Scotland. Mark and I were on a walk, and suddenly I was startled by the image of a face on the ground in front of me. It was about the size of a quarter, and I saw it superimposed over a leaf on the ground. It used the physical object of the leaf to help me see what it looked like. It was a brown, wrinkled leaf. In my mind I saw the full image of the gnome, and his face was deeply wrinkled like the leaf.

I’ve seen several more gnomes and a fairy since then, and each time they have appeared using some of the natural objects around me to help me see what they look like. That’s what my rock friend did! He helped me become aware of his presence using a rock that looks like a face.

  • Sometimes Nature Spirits appear in ways that anyone can look at and notice a clear face (like my rock friend), and other times they are more hidden and you can see them in your mind, as if you are seeing their image superimposed over a natural object.

Just like people, some Nature Spirits don’t want their picture taken. If I see one that I think will show up in a photo, I always ask if it is okay to take a picture. Sometimes those special moments with them are meant just for you.

  • When you see a Nature Spirit, it will stand out to you. You will feel its presence when you see it.

You don’t have to try to see faces in every little pebble and leaf. A Nature Spirit will make itself known to you and you will feel its presence.

Feeling a Nature Spirit’s presence is just as valid and wonderful as seeing it, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see one at first. Focus on feeling the energy of the plants, nature, and Nature Spirits around you when you are spending time in nature.

Tell your Spirit Guides you would like to become aware of the Nature Spirits, and then spend more time appreciating the natural environment around you. Care for it and nurture it. If you see trash on the ground, pick it up as an act of love. If you have an area of your garden that could use some extra attention, spend time tending it while feeling your love and appreciation for the nature around you. Be patient, and with time, you will start to become aware of Nature Spirits as well!

I hope this inspires you to spend more time in nature and feel your connection to the energy around you and the wonderful Nature Spirits!

Sending you love,

Melanie Jade 🙂

    Wow, that is amazing! How cool! I often see little flits of movement or light when I’m gardening and I like to think that it is the nature spirits zipping around and playing! 🙂

      How cool! Those are nature spirits! I often see light moving when I’m indoors. I’ll see waves of white light moving through the air. It’s fun when that happens 🙂

    Love this post. I’m also delighted that you mentioned fairies/gnomes. I’ve seen 3 fairy circles in my neighborhood this past week and my friend showed me pictures of two more enormous ones in her neighborhood, so I’ve had them on the brain. They certainly seem to be very busy here in Dallas!

    • Melanie Jade Rummel

      Hi Alexis! I’ve heard a little bit about fairy circles, but I haven’t ever looked for them. Thank you for bringing my attention to them – I will definitely keep my eye out for them now!

    So great article! It made me believe I did see fairies!!! I’ve started going to the woods and staying there for at least 30-40 everyday, and one day (2 weeks later I’ve started going there) I just came back to my chosen spot, sat down and suddenly I noticed something unusual about the pine sapling around me! They’ve been always there but that moment I suddenly saw the superimposed image (just as you described!) of silhouettes of some small slender creatures with there arms outspread welcomingly and at the same time curiously. I felt this all as fast as lightning.

    The day or two after that I’ve come to the spot again, started meditation, and when I’ve finished it and opened my eyes my sight fell on some inter-crossing of twigs and I saw the small dragon head there, perfectly clear!!! I had a strong feeling of this. That was like an insight!!! That is soooo great and wonderful and magical!!! This started happening after I’ve asked the forest and my guides to let me see the nature spirits and become there friends 🙂 And they’ve heard me!!! I’m so happy and grateful for this wonder!

      I’m am so happy for you Galina! Isn’t it magical when you see glimpses into the world of nature spirits? We are surrounded by love and wonderful helpers everywhere we go 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your story with me!

      • Galina

        It is a real magic!!! I always loved magic and fairy realms and fantasy worlds but I never thought it will be so real! It’s wonderful how life may change if you just stay open and trust your heart.
        Thank you Melanie Jade for being here and that I can share with you 🙂 Life is really full of kindness and love!

    Hi again Melanie Jade!

    I’m curious if the images we see in clouds are some spirits too? Maybe some air spirits 🙂 I watched a cloud today and the image I saw was spontaneous again, just like in the forest. It looked like a big cat prowling or squatting (it reminded a lioness or snow leopard (her tail was thicker to the end)). So I wondered if it is also a spirit which wanted to bee seen. I’ve made the photo of her, but it’s not of good quality though. The first copy is the original and the second one – the photo with some manipulations to see the image clearer. In real life it was much more impressive! The Sky Leopard – white and great 🙂 And I also felt warmth, life and gratitude watching the cloud.

      Hi Galina! Yes, we can get messages or see images that represent our Guides in the clouds. You can even ask your Guides if what you saw represented an air spirit, a symbol about your life and qualities that are important to you right now, an animal spirit guide, or animal totem. Thank you for attaching your picture! I can see it too! – Melanie Jade 🙂
