Answering the Call of the Elementals: Practices for Connecting with Nature Spirits (Paperback)
A glimpse into the unseen magical world of the elementals and how they are connected with humankind
• Explores the hierarchy of elemental beings as well as Christ elemental beings, social elementals, and machine elementals
• Explains how elementals inhabit the etheric space that houses our emotions, feelings, and thoughts and how they carry the emotional level of the world
• Shows how the author learned to make personal contact with the elementals and shares his experiences as well as the elemental world’s urgent call for help
We all live in the realm of elemental beings. They permeate our souls, our thoughts, our feelings, and they co-create the world around us, yet we are often completely unaware of them. They, however, are eager to be perceived and acknowledged by us because their future and ours are fundamentally connected.
Elementals act as carriers of the emotional level of the world, and Thomas Mayer reveals how he learned to develop and fine-tune his sense of perception to make direct personal contact with them. Providing insight into the elemental hierarchy, from the low workers to the masters and the elemental kings, he portrays Christ elemental beings, social elementals, and machine elementals as well. He also explores the adversarial forces like Lucifer and Ahriman that access the elemental world through the subconscious of humans and seek to destroy our elemental friends.
Through sharing his encounters with fairies, dwarves, giants, and others, the author reveals their urgent call for help, an entreaty to anchor the elemental beings again in the awareness of humankind through recognition, acknowledgment, and conscious connection. Let us support the elementals in their crucial, life-giving work, through which they in turn support us in preserving the Earth we live on.

“Elemental beings did not exist for me prior to reading this book. I could conceive of the possibility of their existence and that clairvoyant people could perceive them. (How else did they get into all those fairy tales?) I could imagine that a person with supersensitive abilities might meet gnomes and elves in the forest but that such an unbelievable wealth and diversity of ensouled beings exist inside and around us, this is truly overwhelming.”
— Christiane Flocken, M.D. (alternative medicine) and psychotherapist
“Answering the Call of the Elementals touched me deeply. Besides its message, I greatly appreciate the openness and precision with which the author describes his spiritual experiences.”
— Helmut Thomas, Waldorf teacher
“It is a little miracle how Thomas Mayer manages to assuage my critical mind right from the beginning of the book. I was drawn into a story that is entertaining and gives incredible joy. This little miracle is possible because Thomas Mayer presents himself purely as himself. His sentences are not overly complex, they are precise, without pretense, and full of flashes of humor not explicitly intended.”
— Enno Schmidt, artist, writer, and civil rights activist
“I devoured Answering the Call of the Elementals. I was deeply moved by Mayer’s work, his authenticity, and the matter-of-fact way with which he gives us so much important information in the finest and clearest way. This book contains so many treasures to take away.”
— Seraina Seyffer, therapist
“This book is fantastic! I just finished reading it and have already gifted it to three people. It is wonderfully written with descriptions of how to come into contact with and perceive the elementals. Again and again I noticed while reading how I was totally filled with warmth, light, and strength. Moreover, I have for the first time understood the necessity of caring for the elementals, because in the end it is synonymous with caring for the earth and its beings.”
— Claudine Nierth, spokesperson for the board for More Democracy
"There is a lot of information to ruminate over and to digest between the covers of Answering the Call of the Elementals. Mayer uses the teachings of Austrian philosopher and esotericist Rudolf Steiner as the underpinnings of this book giving a layer of Christian mysticism to a topic that is also part and parcel of pagan practices. This makes the content more globally based and underscores the intention of its writing; collaboration and co-creation between humanity and the realms of the more ephemeral beings."
