Undines: Lessons from the Realm of the Water Spirits by William R. Mistele



Undines takes readers directly into the water spirits’ realm through stories, personal encounters, and interviews with such luminaries as Istiphul, the undine queen whose presence embodies the magical essence of the feminine. Whether seen as fact or fairy tale, Undines presents archetypal truths and insights into human nature. The powers and abilities that undines display are latent in us all and crucial to humanity’s evolution (or mere survival): harmony with nature, empathy and compassion, a deep capacity to love, and a cooperative rather than combative relationship to the world. Since 1975, I have been a steadfast student of the system of initiation taught by the Czech magician, Franz Bardon, who died in the fifties. This system has provided the methods for contacting nature spirits and interacting with them in a personal and original manner.

Undines—from the Latin root unda, which means “wave”— are water elementals, or spirits of the water world. Like their fellow elementals—salamanders (fire), sylphs (air), and gnomes (earth)—undines are united with, and personify, their element. First mentioned in the alchemical works of medieval botanist Paracelsus, undines appear throughout European folklore. Who are these mysterious creatures of lakes, oceans, and waterfalls?Undines takes readers directly into the water spirits’ realm through stories, personal encounters, and interviews with such luminaries as Istiphul, the undine queen whose presence embodies the magical essence of the feminine. Whether seen as fact or fairy tale, Undines presents archetypal truths and insights into human nature. The powers and abilities that undines display are latent in us all and crucial to humanity’s evolution (or mere survival): harmony with nature, empathy and compassion, a deep capacity to love, and a cooperative rather than combative relationship to the world. Undines will appeal broadly to readers of mythology, fantasy, and fairy tales, particularly to practitioners that work with nature spirits and elemental beings—Druids, Wiccans, pagans, and those interested in magic and mysticism.

One of the most beautiful books that I've ever read.

Intruiging concepts.

Very interesting book. Some may consider the subject matter too metaphysical, but the author provided food for thought and a different way to see creatures of the sea.

No matter who you are, this book may change you. Read it at your own risk, for you may be infected with an incurable longing to become more than what you are, or plagued with sobering realizations about what passes for the human condition, or even gripped by an unquenchable fascination for the beauty and possibilities that still dwell beyond the reach of even humanity's most sophisticated sciences and arts.

Whether these stories are fact or fiction makes no difference. Like a genie that has been let out of a bottle, once a certain idea has appeared on a page it cannot be dismissed. Simply reading the words is a compelling experience, and the very fact that words can describe an experience betrays its ultimate reality. Not that the experience is buried deeply in our collective subconcious, but that something deeply buried there is roused with a dim recognition that something goes beyond.

This is truly a book for a new age, but not the New Age that has been selling in one form or another for five decades. It heralds a new dispensation where ancient truths are not just revived or reinterpreted, but are revealed starkly to be just part of the truth, and not the entire story about what spirituality is, or what humanity might become.

I didn't know quite what to expect when a friend gifted me this book, kind of assuming it was more of an historical account of undines or mermaids going back throughout mythology and folklore. Instead, it is a powerful and poetic journey through consciousness, channeling, and archetypes. Women, water, empathy, and love are they keywords and themes that pervade. This book is useful if you are a creative person really trying to understand what this particular type of elemental spirit would think, feel, look, smell, and sound like. Even if you are skeptical of so-called "channeled" material (I'm on the fence myself but keep an open mind), the author writes in such a way that you feel fully immersed in the experience and emotions and for that alone it is worth a swim. Highly metaphysical for someone new to this genre but very readable and a unique experience.

Yea, pretty much what I wrote up there ^...after reading his last book then this one, the best way to describe my personal feelings whilst reading through this book is with one simple word; ecstasy. What an amazing account of interacting with incarnations of the vast mystery of love, that is water, one of the most fundamental investors in our existence, which calls for us to look within, into our own never ending fountain of youth, the fountain of love and wonder. Loved the interviews, and knowing that people like this exist, and then realizing that is within all our potentials to genuinely manifest this serenity and help our fellow humans cultivate it too, by being. Many thank yous to the author for writing this wonderful work.
Words from a visionary that ring true, even if the actual tales might be fiction. They are true in that they reflect the experience of an unusual human being in contacting paraphysical creatures. Beautifully written; if you you are interested in elemental beings, this book will be of interest to you.
