A deva in the metaphysics refers to any of the spiritual forces or beings behind nature. According to Theosophists Charles Webster Leadbeater and Alice A. Bailey, devas represent a separate evolution to that of humanity. The concept of devas as nature-spirits derives from the writings of Theosophist Geoffrey Hodson. It is believed by Theosophists that there are numerous different types of devas with a population in the millions performing different functions on Earth to help the ecology function better. It is asserted they can be observed by those whose third eyes have been activated.
In addition, it is believed by Theosophists that there are millions of devas living inside the Sun, the indwelling solar deity of which Theosophists call the Solar Logos–these devas are called solar angels, or sometimes solar devas or solar spirits. Sometimes, it is believed, they visit Earth and can be observed, like other devas, by humans whose third eyes have been activated. Theosophists believe that there are also devas living inside all the other stars besides Sol; these are called stellar angels.
In the Findhorn material, the term refers to archetypal spiritual intelligences behind species, in other words the group soul of a species.
Some New Age sources use the term is used as a generic term to designate any being regarded as being composed of etheric matter–elementals, nature spirits (including the various types of nature spirits such as fairies, ondines, etc.).

I used to have this really cool little OLD Theosophy book that a numnuts friend of mine lost.
Argh still not over that. It had all the information on elementals of nature, devas, fairies……
So I was looking at all my actual books and couldn’t find the information. Whoever writes at cyrstalinks does a good job.
I have always liked that website.
