In the first half of the program, psychic mediums Christopher Valentine and Dr. Christian von Lahr talked about the world of Nature Spirits. According to the duo, these creatures are a real form of life that begins as spirit (just as we do) and then individualizes into Gnomes, Elves, Fairies, Leprechauns and Pixies.
Valentine described Gnomes as a foot to a foot and a half in height and stocky in appearance. They originated in Scandinavia and bear a remarkable resemblance to garden store gnome statuary, with their tall conical red or green hats, backpacks and clogs. Valentine said everybody has two Gnomes whose main purpose is to help with their health aura.
Leprechauns are seen wearing black hats with buckles and special Fairy-made vests, which Valentine pointed out, "helps them traverse into the astral plane where they make seemingly magical things happen for us." Commenting on Hollywood's negative depiction of Leprechauns in movies, von Lahr said, "It is literally impossible for [Nature Spirits] to be negative or evil in any way because they are sourced from the Angelic Kingdom."
Nature Spirits are actively involved in the process of bringing humans into existence, nurturing plant life, cleansing us from negativity, and bringing balance and harmony to our lives, Valentine expounded. Citing his interview with a Pixie, Valentine disclosed that they are responsible for our moments of insight or inspiration, and appear as flashes our sparkles of light.
The two men also discussed the difficulty in seeing Nature Spirits. Valentine explained they are made of a very light material called 'etheric matter' that is almost transparent to the human eye. Initially, it took years for us to develop a way to see them, von Lahr said. Now, we teach people to use their eyes differently and they can usually see Nature Spirits within 40 minutes to an hour, remarking that most will only see outlines at first. With practice, however, these creatures can be seen in bright color and form, Valentine added.
During Open Lines, George offered a special 'creeped out' line. Steve in Claremont, California, recounted a disturbing event that occurred on a camping trip in a remote part of San Gabriel Canyon. According to Steve, he and his friend heard noises in the middle of the night, and then watched as a mysterious light shown from above their campsite. Steve did not have an explanation and expressed doubt that people could have been responsible.
Leon from Stockton, California, told George about a lucid dream that was very hard to shake. In the dream, he remembered being trapped in a pyramid-like temple with a group of malevolent witches. Leon said after much effort that he was able to awaken from the dream but could feel a hook-like sensation in his stomach, like a tether. Leon maintained that he next walked into his grandmother's room, spoke with her, left, then returned to discover that she had be sleeping the entire time--apparently, even during their conversation.
Ken in Texas phoned in to report his encounter with a Gnome in the crawl space of his house. He said the creature looked at him with piercing eyes, then just walked off. Ken believes the Gnome appeared to him in order to prepare him for the forthcoming death of his grandfather.
