How to Tell if You Are an Elemental Fairy

Meet Fairy Paloma.  She’s not an Indigo Child. You heard right- not an Indigo Child. While it’s possible for Indigo Children to also have Elemental energy, most Fairies are pure Elementals. Like the Incarnated Angels, Fairies have more in common with Indigo Children than not, so we tend to attract each other.

The Fairies, Elves, Pixies and other Elementals are quite similar and look like their namesakes. They often have freckles, reddish hair, high cheek bones, rather pointed ears and even melodic voices. They are easy to spot because they look exactly like what they are. I was on the island of Maui once and went to visit a new friend. As soon as I walked in his home, I was flooded with mental images of a magical Elemental Kingdom.

My whimsical visions included a forest celebration with twinkling lights, winged bodies dancing and upbeat music that never paused. Everyone was happy and for no particular reason other than a joy for life. It was pure celebration. My new friend took celebration seriously, I soon found out. I thought I was coming by for a few hours but found myself there for a few days instead.

The celebration never peaked, instead continuing at a sustainable pace. On Sunday morning, we changed into formal attire and took to the lawn for several rounds of croquette. Tea was served in ceremony and, whenever I found my stomach starting to stir, I would discover someone had been cooking in the kitchen and was ready with a plate of organic glory.

Just as serious as my friend served tea and danced all night long, he took me for a tour of his garden. He carefully pointed out each plant with pride. We chose a flower to pick and brought it back to the house for the alter. I felt as though I had stepped into a Fairyland for a moment and I’ll always remember how magical it felt to live there for a few days.

Elementals are at their best when they can dance in celebration with a group of friends and then spend an afternoon alone in nature. Their homes tend to have big windows with plenty of plants, animals and crystals inside. They are creative, passionate, flirtatious and even promiscuous. Physically, they have almost no issues and thrive on a largely vegetarian diet with plenty of nuts, seeds and berries.

They are not the warrior Indigo Children who are here to destroy poor systems on the front lines of battle. Instead, they are the rule breaking, fun loving, keepers of the Earth- passionately engaged in environmentalism and animal activism with a youthful playfulness. They are best suited for nurturing careers outdoors such as a nanny, dog walker or farmer.

Elementals struggle emotionally, often suffering from depression or diagnosed as bipolar. They can come off as bratty, immature and stubborn when they don’t get to replenish their energy alone in nature. Their emotions carry powerful energy which may explode on you in a ball of fire or fill you with the urge to dance. While Angels tend to become involved in relationships with addicts, Elementals tend to be the addicts and struggle with substance abuse.

Elves are distinct when it comes to work. Fairy Paloma and I met a 4-year-old Elvin boy at a festival this year who worked very hard making sure everyone was having a good time. He kept track of each person meticulously and would bring over items to play with if he saw someone pause from the fun. By the end of each day he was completely exhausted and covered in glitter.

A mother stopped by one morning to watch the kids playing because she missed her son who had stayed home with his father. The little Elf spotted her, took her by the hand and led her into the middle of the jungle where we were playing. He did the same with her friend, joining their hands, and then brought them a book to read together. Tears streamed down her face and welled in my own eyes to experience this kind of love. He was only able to enjoy himself if everyone else was having fun.

Elementals help people because they feel they have to rather than because they want to. With Elves as the exception, Elementals playfully manifest instead of working hard for a living. If they understand this about themselves, it can be very successful. But if they aren’t encouraged or nurtured for this skill, they will manifest poverty. Fairy Paloma has made a career of teaching us how to playfully manifest through meditatively making Fairy Wishes with her very own magical Fairy Dust.

How to Nurture Your Elemental Energy:

1. Go Outside
Elementals cleanse and recharge their energy in nature. Spending time outside is the single best thing you can do for yourself. Bring the outdoors into your home as well with plants, animals, crystals and aromatherapy oils. Be creative and make art from items found in nature. Use chemical-free products with natural ingredients.

2. Play
Fairy myths are full of mischievous Fairies. This playful side of the Elementals is an important part of your energy that we call connecting to your inner child. Go ahead and dance all night long. It’s actually good for you.

3. Eat Consciously
Elementals thrive on vegetarian, pescetarian and vegan diets with plenty of nuts, seeds and berries. Focus on putting good things in your body and avoid drugs and alcohol which could easily become addicting. Read more about The Fairy Diet from Taylor here.

4. Manifest
Your conscious diet will allow you the clarity of mind to playfully manifest your success. Daily yoga and meditation will help you refine your manifestation skills and identify the intangibles your heart truly desires. Instead of working hard in an environment that drains you, nurture your manifestation skills and create an environment where you can thrive.

5. Emotionally Mature
While other types of Lightworkers struggle with physical issues, yours are emotional. Learning emotional health will make life much easier and help you avoid psychiatric drugs for depression, ADHD and bipolar disorder. As in all aspects of health, balance is ideal.

6. Participate
You are a born activist for animals and the environment. Your life’s purpose is almost certainly found here, so get involved. We need you! Try recycling at home, adopting or fostering a rescued animal, driving a hybrid vehicle or buying certified cruelty-free and organic products.

Connecting with the Fairies is a great way for all of us to keep magic alive within ourselves. When I misplace things at home, I like to ask for help from the Fairies. It works every time, and I’m always careful to thank them afterward. Once, my friend lost an important data card in my home. After he had searched frantically for some time, I suggested he ask the Fairies for help finding it. Immediately after doing so, he found the data card under his foot. Very funny, Fairies. Thank you.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Roger! We write articles every week, so keep reading to learn more. Are there any topics you would like us to cover or questions you would like us to answer? We would love your suggestions!

  1. Suddenly much of my life makes so much sense. I wondered why customer service jobs were so exhausting for me, why my body has an aversion to meat and dairy, why i feel better spending time outside; just so much, thank you.

    1. You may try searching for an outdoor job. A tour guide for a park of sorts, groundskeeper, perhaps a worker in a commercial greenhouse, the list goes on. I have a fairy friend who works as a gardener and cart driver for a golf course. He interacts with people, but in a laid-back setting.
      I’ve also found fairies to be QUITE the little comedians! On a field trip, I met a fairy who works at the Dwight D Eisenhower museum and even up in his years, he was cracking jokes, making faces, and having a good ol’ time with my class.

  2. Hello
    I’m not sure if I’m elemental or just indigo. I have smooth light brown hair with natural blonde highlights, and it’s slightly wavy. My eyes are medium blue with yellow and brown ring in the middle(heterochromia) I’m fairly tall, and I look athletic (because I do sports) I’m fairly slim. I’m a teen so my skin is not nice(but that’s just hormonal I think.) My skin is a little tanned looking even in winter, and I get tanned in just a couple hours. I like to help people, and I forgive people easily. But I don’t ave many friends. My friends know me as ”the mom” of the group:D

    1. I’m always helping people, and I feel their emotions. I can sometimes tell the fortune, I have kind of like 6th sense I would say. I can see auras. I see spirits and I’ve had encounters with them. I learn things REALLY quickly, I only need to see someone else do it, and then I learn super quick. And I think I also have healing abilities. Me an my friend were in a forest. she sprained her ankle, not badly fortunately. I just subconciously started to collect herbs and made a paste with herbs and water, put it on her ankle and after a while washed it off with cold water. To this day, she claims

      1. that it took the pain away. I’ve also always been capable of knowing what others think, even readin minds. I can communicate with my friend by telepathy. I’m not even lying. Just short thoughts, no long conversations. My mind is capable of leaving my body. I can just leave my body and go fly outside. I don’t see it visually, like in front of me, but in my mind, it’s perfectly clear, and I can see anything. I can dive 25 meters with no training, and I feel home there. I feel connected to the nature, always

        1. I don’t know if this has anything to do with the elemental/indigo thing, but I don’t feel cold. Or I mean I feel it, but it never actually bothers me, I can go outside in -25 celsius with only jacket and leggings, and it doesn’t bother me. Winter is just something that I love. Same with water, never cold. Is there like, winter, water or ice elementals?

  3. This speaks to me. I’ve always been the weirdo dancing down the aisles at the grocery store. And if I don’t get to take thrice weekly forest baths I get really cranky.
