Mother Nature - Mythical Creatures Guide
Mother Earth is the idea of nature in all of it's forms.She is usually seen surrounding by animals and different plants (depending on the season). Mother Nature is viewed in many different lights, usually as peaceful and tender (Similar to any mother we humans know). When "angered" she is interpreted as all of the natural disasters & bad weather. She is also viewed as a deity by many ancient religions.
For example, in the Egyptian religion Hathor & Isis were two goddesses that relate to Mother Nature. Hathor is an ancient Egyptian goddesswho personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood.She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as "Mistress of the West" welcoming the dead into the next life.In other roles she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth,as well as the patron goddess of miners.
Isis is also a goddess in ancient Egyptianreligious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers.Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus's mother was Hathor. Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.
The religious beliefs of the indigenous people of the Andes worship a motherly figure as well. Pachamamais usually translated as Mother Earth, but a more literal translation would be "Mother world". Pachamamais a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. She causes earthquakes. Her husband was either Pacha Comacor Inti, depending on the source. Llamasare sacrificed to her. After the conquest by Spain, which forced conversionto Roman Catholicism, the figure of the Virgin Marybecame united with that of the Pachamama for many of the indigenous people.

Wicca and some other Neo-Pagans worship the Mother Goddess. Most commonly she is worshiped as a Triple Goddess; usually envisioned as the Maiden, Mother, and Cronearchetypes. She is associated with the full moon and stars, as well as the Earth and sea.The term "Great Goddess" refers to a mother goddess in some contemporary Neopagan and Wiccan religions.Even among those who are not Pagan, expressions such as Mother Earth and Mother Nature are in common usage, personifying the Earth's ecology as a fertile and sustaining mother.

History (Origin)

The word nature comes from the Latin word, natura, meaning birth or character. In English its first recorded use, in the sense of the entirety of the phenomena of the world, was very late in history in 1662; however natura, and the personification of Mother Nature, was widely popular in the Middle Ages and can be traced to Ancient Greece in origin. The pre-Socratic philosophers of Greece had invented nature when they abstracted the entirety of phenomena of the world into a single name and spoken of as a single object: Natura. Later Greek thinkers such as Aristotle were not as entirely inclusive, excluding the stars and moon, the "supernatural", from nature. Thus from this Aristotelian view - nature existing inside a larger framework and not inclusive of everything - nature became a personified deity, and it is from this we have the origins of a mythological goddess nature. Later medieval Christian thinkers did not see nature as inclusive of everything, but thought that she was created by God, her place lay on earth, below the heavens and moon. Nature lay somewhere in the middle, with agents above her (angels) and below her (demons and hell). For the medieval mind she was only a personification, not a goddess. The modern concept of nature, all inclusive of all phenomenon, has returned to its original pre-Socratic roots, no longer a personification or deity except in a rhetorical sense, a bow to her illustrious traditions.

I also used many links off of this page to get more information (Hathor & Isis, mostly)
Mother Nature is on this wiki because some people do not believe in her, therefore to them she is a myth. Also, to some she is an interpretation of Nature and the birth of the world rather than a figure.

The Cycle of Life is the Understanding of Mother Nature.
All Life Starts and Ends through Mother Nature.
When we look back throughout our history of the world,
We the human race has forgotten all about the
Cycle of Life and Mother nature.
We have forgotten that Mother Nature Controls all the
Cycle of Life in everything on this Earth.
Starting with the Birth of Everything, and the Dying of Everything.
Starting with Our Planet, How it Provides Us with the land
and Water We Live on, the Air we Breathe, The Plants for
Food that we Eat, The Sun that gives Us Daylight to See
Everything, Heat to keep Us Warm. It helps our plants
to grow, the Trees that grow for heat and protection, The
Animals we eat for food and clothing, The Fish, Seafood
from our lakes and Oceans, The water we Drink from the
that falls. The Bees, Birds, Insects and Winds that Pollinate
our flowers, Plants and Trees.
Mother Nature Gives the Cycle of Life to all Living and
dying things through Reproduction by filtration, Pollination
and Procreation of all Animals including US the SO Call
Human Race.
Mother Nature Try Hard to Satisfy Us the So Call Human
Race with a Balance Lifestyle through Her Four Season
of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Showing Us How
Life Begins, How Life Grows, How Life Offer Abundance
and How Life Dies Every Year.
Mother Nature Can and does Show Her Bad and Good
sides with Her Destruction and Her Beauty trying to
Teach Us the So Call Human Race How to Live in Harmony
with Each Other and Protect Her.
But through Greed and Faith, We Live and Created Our
Own Heaven or Hell with Wars, Pollutions, Destruction
of Our Planet and the So Call Human Race.

I saw a program on cable tv sunday 2/24/13, it showed log cabin mansions, beautiful but they used logs that were 100+ years old. One had a tree about three stories high as the main support beam, I think this tree is the issue. Later before I went to bed I saw the face of a "creature" a tree elemental, the skin was tree bark--rough like a walnut tree, the eyes were round and the color of fall leaves (brown and golden yellow), this creature was trapped. I think when the tree was cut this being was asleep in it, they sand the roots in the base of the house with crete, and top of the tree is blocked....the eyes of this being were hopeless...it will die. Can it be helped? The home is beautiful and this tree is the main support, I can't see the owner's moving it, but how to release this being??? Any suggesions??? LOL
