The Real Word of Faeries is a privileged glimpse into a joyous, animated universe. Dora van Gelder’s enchanting vision of her encounters with the fairy realm brings the magical and mysterious world of faeries to vital, appealing, and heartfelt life. Her gentle tales will delight the child in us, spark our grown-up imagination, rekindle our creative energy, and deepen our sense of connection with nature.

” If we are patient and courteous, we too can find fairy allies in the wild places of nature, in the secret pathways of our dreams, in the deep wisdom of the ancient and ancestral traditions of our land, as Dora van Gelder has demonstrated “. – Caitlin Matthews – from the Foreword.

From Chapter 4: ‘Fairy Life’ (p. 47):

” Between the human point of view and that of a fairy, or any member of the angelic kingdom, one of the main differences is that we live in a world of form and they live in a world of life. Our thoughts are primarily concerned with the form things have, and we seldom go further than that. But fairies are mainly concerned with the energy and life flowing around and within the form – life that is everywhere . . . “

Devas and Men – A Compilation of Theosophical Studies on the Angelic Kingdom

By anonymous authors, included authorities quoted amongst others: Helena Petrovna Blavatsky(1831 – 1891), Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), Alice Bailey (1880 – 1949) and Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

396 Pages | First edition 1977, 3rd reprint 2000 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170594200.

The concept of Deva-Man is both intriguing and immense; intriguing, because much of it still remains a mystery and what information is available is often carefully veiled; immense, because it appertains to the whole of man and to his relationship with nature and the Universe. […] What does ‘deva’ mean? The word is derived from the Sanskrit meaning ‘to shine’ – hence the ‘shining ones’, the ‘resplendent ones’. But the term is used very loosely and in Hindu Scriptures, for instance, may refer to all life which is invisible. It is suggested too, that devic life is the sum total of of substance itself, the basis of all manifestation, or, in other words, Spirit-Matter. It refers to a whole range of life that is evolving ‘pari passu’ with the human.

From page x:

” If we will but scan the records of history, legend and myth we can see the parts, which they played in the childhood of the race. We find records of these angelic beings, and their connection with man, in all the sacred scriptures of the world . . . “

” In the future, they will definitely take in charge the guidance of man’s evolution along special lines, and will constantly aid and instruct him. ” – From: Theos. Vol. 40, p. 186).

383 Pages | Published in 1978 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835605021.

A clairvoyant, Leadbeater wrote, is simply a person who develops ‘the power to respond to another octave out of the stupendous gamut of possible vibrations’ and so is enabled ‘to see more of the world than those of more limited perception’. And what a world Leadbeater describes for us in these pages – a world of Master Adepts and their pupils, untapped human powers and potentials, ancient Mysteries, Deva-s and Nature Spirits. In short, the unseen workings of the universe . . .

The Life After Death

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

94 Pages | First edition 2012, 13th Reprint | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592532.

The subject of life after death is one of great interest to all of us, not only because we ourselves must certainly die one day, but far more because there can scarcely be any more among us, except perhaps the very young, who has not lost (as we call it) by death someone who is near and dear to us. So if there be any information available with regard to the life after death, we are naturally very anxious to have it.

From Chapter VII – ‘Guardian Angels’ (p. 69 & 71):

” There are many graceful traditions of spiritual guardianship and angelic intervention, which we should all very much like to believe if we could only see our way to accept them rationally, and I hope to explain that to a very large extent we may do this. The belief in such intervention is a very old one. Among the earliest Indian legends we find accounts of the occasional appearances of minor deities at critical points in human affairs. […] The old belief in angels and archangels is justified by the facts, for just as there are various kingdoms below humanity, so there are also kingdoms above it in evolution. We find next above us, holding much the same position with regard to us that we in turn hold to the animal kingdom, the great kingdom of Deva-s or Angels, and above them again an evolution which has been called that of the Dhyan Chohans or archangels and so upward to the very feet of Divinity. All is one graduated life, from God Himself to the very dust of beneath our feet – one long ladder, of which humanity occupies only one of the steps. “

The Kingdom of the Gods

By Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

273 Pages | First edition, 14th reprint 2014, incl. illustrations | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592921.

In this most unusual book Geoffrey Hodson, one of the greatest occultists of our times, gives a fascinating account of evolution as it relates to a kingdom of nature parallel to man, namely the kingdom of the angelic hosts, known in the East as the kingdom of the Deva-s or ‘the Shining Ones’.

Every religion has its Angels and Archangels. Legends, myths and folklore of every country throughout the world and in all ages speak of Angels and Nature-Spirits, Spirits of the mountains, clouds and rivers, and of mischievous imps, which delight in playing pranks on human beings. Yet very little specific information is available about them or their functions and activities.

The graphic descriptions of the various Deva-s: of water, of fire, of mountains and seas, of trees and plants, of music, of individual nations      together with colourful illustrations of their forms as seen by clairvoyant vision, lead one unconsciously into a wonderful experience of the ‘Comradeship of the Angels’.

From page 243:

” The planetary World Mother is conceived in certain Schools of occult philosophy as a highly-evolved Archangel Representative and Embodiment on earth of the Feminine Aspect of Deity. She is also thought of as an Adept Official in the Inner Government of the World, in whom all the highest qualities of womanhood and motherhood shine forth in their fullest perfection. Since She is beyond all limitation or form, no picture can truly represent Her. “


auteur: Hodson, G.
ISBN: 9788170592921
Additional DescriptionMore Details

The Kingdom of the Gods is based on knowledge revealed in occult books like The Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky and Clairvoyant investigations by occultists like Annie Besant, C.W. Leadbeater and the author himself. As to the proof of existence of these invisible beings the author points out that, while there can be no demonstrable proof of the fruits of mystical experience, test by personal research is possible and he says, ‘That test I have attempted to apply, and this book is in part a record of my own findings’.
