This book describes in detail help given to people on the physical plane by beings on other planes, invisible to our physical sight. Over the years, with the so-called progress of science, such phenomena were rejected as being the product of imagination, but Theosophy has proved rationally that this is not the case.
All the charming folklore surrounding elves, brownies, and gnomes, the spirits of air and water, and so on, has been shown by Theosophy to be no mere meaningless superstition, but to have a basis in scientific fact. In spite of the dogmatism of science, instances of intervention (especially in helping and saving children), inexplicable from the materialistic standpoint, continue to occur. This book is an absorbing record of such instances, with detailed information about the astral plane.
