Are gnomes real? I know it sounds like a silly question, but i swear there is something that follows me around and takes random things that i never find again. Including money!!! THere have been so many situations that i just cant explain.

For example. I was living in a rented single room over the summer with my boyfriend. I had just received $60 and put it in my back pocket with some change. without leaving the room, like five minutes later i took those pants off and folded them and put the next to the bed and went to sleep. When we woke up the next morning it was gone! THe change was still there but no bills. No one had been in our room we were in it all night. I really dont think my boyfriend took it because it was the only money we had and we didnt eat for two days because it went missing.

A few weeks later we moved out of the room so we looked through literally everything and never found it.
I guess this could be blamed on carelessness but it happens pretty often(not just with money) even when im being very careful and conscious about the items and even when i hide them with no one else knowing but me where they are. Am i just going crazy!?

Hmmm? Are Gnomes the ones responsible for missing items? thought that was something else..... Oh well.

To me Gnomes exist, Coz I believe in the Elementals
Sylphs - Air Elementals
Slamanders - Fire Elementals
Undines - Water elementals
Gnomes - Earth Elementals <- So yeah  Grin If you believe elementals exists then Gnomes exists  Wink

In an attempt to understand the elements around us we tend to categorize them.

We invent symbols to represent those natural forces..often the Sylphs,for example, are used to represnt air/wind...Salamanders represent fire..like ShadowLight said.

The danger comes in when we start thinking of the symbols in physical terms instead of the representations that these things are.

It's like the Yggdrasil Tree representing the source of life (or something)...it is a simple way to explain life and the source of the life force then after that concept is grasped then one moves on.

In MY OPINION none of these symbols exist in the physical...in MY OPINION you are not going to see a gnome running around doing stuff like you see in cartoons..they are symbols and nothing more.

Once again this is only MY OPINION! I am NOT saying I am right..just want to make this clear. Smiley

Sure! research away Smiley I like to believe that anything is possible. If you believe something is real it gives it power, so we never know what can be real in the universe. I'd Love to learn more about the elementals.

If fairies and other elementals are real - why not gnomes?

You can create anything in your own reality by intention and giving it power and energy.  So what is next hobbit's?

Sure Gnomes are real - in the astral.  If not, then I´m a monkey´s uncle.

I like to think Gnomes are real in some version of reality - if it's not in our realm then definitely in another realm..Maybe they can come in and out of this one which is why people have seen Gnome like creatures but then they've just disappeared into thin air.

Personally though I like Trolls...has anyone here seen that cult film called 'Troll' made in 1986?? It's a movie that I will never forget and they're filming a remake of it for release in 2009...awesome stuff.

I was under the impression that faeries were typically the ones who take and hide things.  My knowledge on the subject is admittedly limited, however.   Tongue

Just Quick links to Wikipedia but helpful none the less

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnome
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwarf
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprite_%28creature%29
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixie
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salamander_%28legendary_creature%29

another link recommended by wikipedia

http://www.fortunecity.com/greenfield/tigris/567/id51.htm

Worthy of note are the comments regarding the wee folk as having Cardinal Associations ie East, South, North, West. If you believe in the Elementals, extending it to these associations is not that much of a stretch.
Enjoy

Add On: an interesting and somewhat funny to me article is here

I thank you to all who have replyed to this post. I've learned alot about stuff i didnt know exisited and want to learn more now.  unfortunalty i have solved my mystery of my disapperaring money. I'll tell ya I really wish it was fairies. But no, i just found out that my boyfriend has been smoking Crack and stealing my money to do so. Its very upsetting, i already broke up with him and now am in a desparate search to find a new place to live. I don't know how i could be so nieve.  Lips Sealed I apoligize if this subject matter is too adult for this site but I'm being literal and serious . do please delete this post if anyone feels affended.
