Let's first define spiritual science. There have always been remarkable people throughout the history of humankind: visionary people who passed down their teachings based upon a profound and comprehensive view of the world. These people were guides for humanity. Zarathustra, Hermes Trismegistus, Aristotle, Plato, Pythagoras, Christian Rosenkreuz, etc. were some of them.
Their teachings encompassed the spiritual forces that govern the world. They were directly passed down from master to pupil within the very restricted framework of “Mystery Centers”. These initiation schools always existed but they had to protect themselves from the outside world by strictly abiding by the rule of secrecy. This explains why their existence was not known to the general public. Since the 20th century the evolution of humanity has been conducive to opening these spiritual science teachings to all “truth seekers”.
Helena P. Blavatsky (1831-1891) was the founder of the spiritual and theosophical society. Clairvoyant since her childhood, she gradually learned how to command elementals and she dedicated a part of her works to studying these elemental entities. She wrote “they have neither immortal spirits nor tangible bodies. The most solid part of their bodies is just immaterial enough to escape our perception”.
She went on to say “not only do they exist in the ether but they can condense it to a point where they can make tangible bodies out of it, bodies to which they can – through their protean power give whatever form they like”. This expression of protean power shows the propensity that they have to change the form of their creations. This means that the elementals can create material bodies of any form.
Rudolf Steiner (1865-1925) was the founder of the spiritual movement of Anthroposophy. In several of his writings, he described the stunning abilities (stunning because they were still little known) of the elemental beings.
Patrick J. Petri, Selim Aïssel: the Psycho-Anthropology movement adapted this teaching to our contemporary era.
