TommyKnockers

For hundreds of years, from all around the world, these stories hold true, of legends of these creatures from underground. What is it about the underground that brings such horrific creatures and odd stories? What secrets do the underground world hold? These are not your typical ‘ghosts’…opps, I mean demons!

First, I will place the information gathered from sources about these creatures, then I will elaborate on my finding.

The Knocker, Knacker, Bwca (Welsh), Bucca (Cornish), Nuggies, Spriggans, and Tommyknockers is a ‘mythical’ creature in Welsh, Cornish and Devon folklore. They are equivalent to Irish Leprechauns and English and Scottish brownies. About two feet tall and grizzled, but misshaped, they live beneath the ground. Here they wear tiny versions of standard miner’s garb and commit random mischief, such as stealing miners’ unattended tools and food.

Their names come from the knocking on the mine walls that happens just before cave-ins-actually the creaking of earth and timbers before the giving way. To some of the miners, the knockers were malevolent spirits and the knocking was the sound of them hammering at walls and supports to cause the cave-in. To others, who saw them as essentially well-meaning practical jokers, the knocking was their way of warning the miners that a life-threatening collapse was imminent.

According to some Cornish folklore, the Knockers were the helpful spirits of people who had died in previous accidents in the many tin mines in the county, warning the miners of impending danger. To give thanks for the warnings, and to avoid future peril, the miners cast the last bite of their tasty pasties into the mines for the Knockers.

In the 1820s, immigrant Welsh miners brought tales of the knockers and their theft of unwatched items and warning knocks to western Pennsylvania, when they gravitated there to work in the mines. Cornish miners, much sought after in the years following the 1848 gold rush, brought them to California. When asked if they had relatives back in Cornwall who would come to work the mines, the Cornish miners always said something along the lines of “Well, me cousin Jack over in Cornwall wouldst come, could ye pay ’is boat ride”, and so came to be called Cousin Jacks. The Cousin Jacks, as notorious for losing tools as they were for diving out of shafts just before they collapsed, attributed this to their diminutive friends and refused to enter new mines until assured by the management that the knockers were already on duty. Belief in the knockers remained well into the 20th century. When one large mine closed in 1956 and the owners sealed the entrance, fourth, fifth, and sixth generation Cousin Jacks circulated a petition calling on the mine-owners to set the knockers free so that they could move on to other mines. The owners complied.

Knocker also appeared as a name for the same phenomena, in the folklore of Staffordshire miners.

{*This is very interesting in that miners would not enter into the mines until the management assured them that the TommyKnockers were already ON DUTY. Contrary to that, in the new series ‘Ghost Mine’, the man named Richard (Duck) said that we wouldn’t return because of their presence. Richard (Duck) also said, “I’ve listened to the Old Miner’s when they say, ‘You pay attention to what you hear or see underground’.” I find this very intriguing because of what I’ve learned from the ‘legends’ of the Nephilim which eventually went underground. It’s no wise tale. It’s the truth! Some of the things connect to these legends such as; Superstition: Red Hair! Red hair are connected to the giants/Nephilim. They are said to be red-headed. Secondly: Women! Why aren’t women allowed underground. The old miners’ say it’s ‘bad luck’. I think this is because they couldn’t defend themselves as well from these underground spirits. And they began turning up missing. Let’s research this some more!!
Of course, we have the gender based discrimination but what else? You can’t tell me women had it easier! They did so much back then. It was determined that 30% of all miners were women! Of course this figure was less on other countries. Women were called, “Cousin Jennies”.
Luck played a big part in mining. Although we know ‘luck’ comes from the origin of ‘Lucifer’, they didn’t. But, this superstition played a huge part.
Red-haired women in a mine was a double-whammy! Perhaps it was that women who came to the mines were historically there because of a tragedy, and looking for a loved one. Red-haired women were considered an omen of death, and I suppose it was for this reason.
Some speak of these Knockers in the Kobold Mines, tell of malicious spirits. In the late 19th Century, the Mamie R. Mine, in Cripple Creek, Colorado, was supposedly haunted by malicious TommyKnockers that lured miners in, then proceeded to jump up and down on beams until they collapsed upon the men. They were also blamed for snapping cables, and premature blasts; they were heard snickering at the miners as they did their evil deeds.
WOW!
Get this! In Cornwall, they were considered to be the ghosts of Jews who worked in the mines. Some stories state that these Jew were sent by the Romans to work in the mines as a form of punishment-for the death of Jesus Christ. It is said that the Knockers cannot tolerate the sign of the cross, so miners avoided making anything with a cross or X.
It is stated that whistling offended the spirits, and this is curiously strange. I wonder why?

Quartz acts as a natural battery for paranormal activity and this is what the miners look for to find gold!  *}

BROWNIE
A brownie/brounie or urisk (Lowland Scots) or brùnaidh, ùruisg, or gruagach (Scottish Gaelic) is a legendary creature popular in folklore around Scotland and England (especially the north, though more commonly hobs have this role). It is the Scottish and Northern English counterpart of the Scandinavian tomte, the Slavic domovoi and the German Heinzelmännchen.
Tradition
In folklore, a brownie resembles the hob, similar to a hobgoblin. Brownies are said to inhabit houses and aid in tasks around the house. However, they do not like to be seen and will only work at night, traditionally in exchange for small gifts of food. Among food, they especially enjoy porridge and honey. They usually abandon the house if their gifts are called payments, or if the owners of the house misuse them. Brownies make their homes in an unused part of the house.
Folklorist John Gregorson Campbell distinguishes between the English brownie, which lived in houses, and the Scottish ùruisg or urisk, which lived outside in streams and waterfalls and was less likely to offer domestic help. The ùruisg enjoyed solitude at certain seasons of the year. Around the end of the harvest, he became more sociable, and hovered around farmyards, stables and cattle-houses. He particularly enjoyed dairy products, and tended to intrude on milkmaids, who made regular libations of milk or cream to charm him off, or to gain his favor. He was usually seen only by those who possessed second sight, though there were instances when he made himself visible to ordinary people as well. He is said to have been jolly and personable, with flowing yellow hair, wearing a broad blue bonnet and carrying a long walking staff.

time
Every manor house had its ùruisg, and in the kitchen, close by the fire was a seat, which was left unoccupied for him. One house on the banks of the River Tay was even until the beginning of the twentieth century believed to have been haunted by such a sprite, and one room in the house was for centuries called “Seòmar Bhrùnaidh” (Brownie’s room).
In 1703, John Brand wrote in his description of Shetland (which he called “Zetland”) that:
“Not above forty or fifty years ago, every family had a brownie, or evil spirit, so called, which served them, to which they gave a sacrifice for his service; as when they churned their milk, they took a part thereof, and sprinkled every corner of the house with it, for Brownie’s use; likewise, when they brewed, they had a stone which they called ‘Brownie’s stane’, wherein there was a little hole into which they poured some wort for a sacrifice to Brownie. They also had some stacks of corn, which they called Brownie’s Stacks, which, though they were not bound with straw ropes, or in any way fenced as other stacks used to be, yet the greatest storm of wind was not able to blow away straw off them.”
Brownies seldom spoke with humans, but they held frequent and affectionate conversations with one another. They had general assemblies as well, usually held on a remote, rocky shore. In a certain district of the Scottish Highlands, “Peallaidh an Spùit” (Peallaidh of the Spout), “Stochdail a’ Chùirt”, and “Brùnaidh an Easain” (Brownie of the little waterfall) were names of note at those congresses. According to Scottish toponymist William J. Watson, every stream in Breadalbane had an ùruisg once, and their king was Peallaidh. (Peallaidh’s name is preserved in “Obair Pheallaidh”, known in English as “Aberfeldy”.) It may be the case, that ùruisg was conflated with some water sprite, or that ùruisg were originally water sprites conflated with brownies.

{*I find it really convincing that the ‘Brownies’ lived in streams and behind waterfalls considering the City in the Sea which inhabits many DEMONS and spirits of all hierarchy in the evil supernatural world.
These creatures are known to ‘haunt’ homes as well as the underground, but again we have these creatures ‘haunting’ the water. Every stream contained a spirit? Wow, that’s some huge numbers! *}

Regional variants
Anglo-Scottish Border folklore also included a figure, “Billy Blind” or “Billy Blin”, much like the brownie, but mentioned only in ballads. A hob came from the Scottish Borders and north of England, while the lubber fiend, lob or lob lie-by-the-fire was a variant from England.
The Killmoulis was a similar creature which inhabited mills. Its distinguishing feature was that its face was made up of a huge nose and no mouth.
The fenodyree is a folkloric fairy from the Isle of Man with similar attributes to the brownie.
Jack o’ the bowl is a Swiss folkloric fairy.

Goblin
A goblin is a legendary evil or mischievous creature; a grotesquely evil or evil-like phantom.
They are attributed with various (sometimes conflicting) abilities, temperaments and appearances depending on the story and country of origin. In some cases, goblins have been classified as constantly annoying little creatures somewhat related to the brownie and gnome. They are usually depicted as small, sometimes only a few inches tall, sometimes the size of a dwarf. They also often are said to possess various magical abilities. They are also very greedy and love money.

GNOME
gnome /ˈnoʊm/ is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th Century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story-tellers, but it is typically said to be a small, humanoid creature that lives underground.
Origins
The word comes from Renaissance Latin gnomus, which first appears in the works of 16th century Swiss alchemist Paracelsus. He is perhaps deriving the term from Latin gēnomos (itself representing a Greek γη-νομος, literally “earth-dweller”). In this case, the omission of the ē is, as the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) calls it, a blunder. Alternatively, the term may be an original invention of Paracelsus.
Paracelsus uses Gnomi as a synonym of Pygmæi, and classifies them as earth elementals. He describes them as two spans high, very reluctant to interact with humans, and able to move through solid earth as easily as humans move through air.
The chthonic, or earth-dwelling, spirit has precedents in numerous ancient and medieval mythologies, often guarding mines and precious underground treasures, notably in the Germanic dwarves and the Greek Chalybes, Telchines or Dactyls.
In Romanticism and modern fairy tales
The English word is attested from the early 18th century. Gnomes are used in Alexander Pope’s “The Rape of the Lock”. The creatures from this mock-epic are small, celestial creatures which were prudish women in their past-lives, and now spend all of eternity looking out for prudish women (in parallel to the guardian angels in Catholic belief). Other uses of the term gnome remain obscure until the early 19th century, when it is taken up by authors of Romanticist collections of fairy tales and becomes mostly synonymous with the older word goblin.
In 19th century fiction, the chthonic gnome became a sort of antithesis to the more airy or luminous fairy. Nathaniel Hawthorne in Twice-Told Tales (1837) contrasts the two in “Small enough to be king of the fairies, and ugly enough to be king of the gnomes” (cited after OED). Similarly, gnomes are contrasted to elves, as in William Cullen Bryant’s Little People of the Snow (1877), which has “let us have a tale of elves that ride by night, with jingling reins, or gnomes of the mine” (cited after OED).
One of the first movements in Mussorgsky’s 1874 work Pictures at an Exhibition, named “Gnomus” (Latin for “The Gnome”), is written to sound as if a gnome is moving about, his movements constantly changing in speed.
Franz Hartmann in 1895 satirized materialism in an allegorical tale entitled Unter den Gnomen im Untersberg. The English translation appeared in 1896 as Among the Gnomes: An Occult Tale of Adventure in the Untersberg. In this story, the Gnomes are still clearly subterranean creatures, guarding treasures of gold within the Untersberg mountain.
As a figure of 19th century fairy tales, the term gnome by the 20th century became largely synonymous with other terms for the “little people”, such as goblin, brownie, kobold, leprechaun, Heinzelmännchen and other instances of the “domestic spirit” type, losing its strict association with earth or the underground world.

{* This one is a dooooooosie! Magic and alchemy go hand in hand. The Renaissance magic, alchemy and astrology are the three occult Hermitic sciences. All three being interconnected. For the Renaissance philosopher magic was a spiritual science which, like the Cosmos itself, was arranged in a triple hierarchy: material, celestial, and divine. Natural magic is reliant on elements and occult properties of material objects and required a knowledge of natural philosophy. Celestial magic relies on the spiritual connections and causality imposed by the Zodiacal powers and required a knowledge of mathematics (for calculation) and astrology.
Don’t get confused-this is all alchemy. MAGICK! Occult magick.  Example being: Astrological magic consists of two divisions. The first uses astrology to elect times for magical ceremonies, ritual and actions and is therefore a branch of electional astrology.
If your still confused think of the false flag events and how they use dates and times for these things to happen. This also applies to births, especially of the Royal lineage. This is also how witches/warlocks perform their rituals, with numbers and dates…Witches Sabbath, solstices, All Hallow’s Eve, etc.
Did you know: Paracelsus, alchemists, and related movements, such as ROSICRUCIANISM, continue to speak of sylphs in their hermetic literature.
Did you know: The ancient Greeks knew water nymphs guarded the fresh water bodies for the gods.

Connections to the Underground
On page 175 of Alien Identities, Dr. Richard L Thompson ( http://www.afn.org/~bvi ) relates an underground abduction case where the underground base was accessed through the sea by UFO:
“ On the evening of January 3, 1979, Cardenas, his friend Fernando Marti, and Marti’s wife and 13 year old daughter were driving around on the outskirts of Hialeah, looking for a pig they could buy for a roast. They were unsuccessful, and on the way home their car engine quit.

The two men testified that the lights and starter wouldn’t work, and so they got out and began to look under the hood. At this point, they suddenly saw red and violet alternating lights reflecting off the engine and heard a sound like ‘many bees.’ … Filiberto felt paralyzed, and he began to rise in the air shouting “ Don’t take me, don’t take me.” Later he recounted a strange and elaborate story that began when he awoke to find himself sitting, paralyzed, in the presence of a robot-like being and two men in tight-fitting suits. … Filiberto said the alien beings looked quite human. They had elongated eyes with eyelashes, small flattened noses, long lipless mouths, and light beards. They also wore a symbol on the right of their chests, consisting of a serpent on a lazy X.

The story becomes even more extraordinary: The beings proceeded to take Filiberto to an underground base, traveling beneath the sea at high speed through a tunnel of “ firmed water “ that seemed to open in front of the craft so that water did not touch it. At the base, he met a human who was working with the aliens, and he was led through what seemed like a city.”

Dr. Thompson goes on to relate that Filiberto had several experiences while in this underground base accessed through the sea, some of them biological, some of them suggestive of mind control, then he was finally dropped of again on the surface.

And here is another account of an underground UFO abduction: “When hypnosis was used to probe her 1967 abduction, Betty Andreason (Alien Identities, page 201) recalled being taken in a UFO through a tunnel bored through solid rock. This tunnel led through a strange landscape with a view of an ocean, a distant city and a pyramid surrounded by an ‘Egyptian head’ She was conducted by two entities along an elevated track to a place where she saw a vivid enactment of the Egyptian myth of the Phoenix, a giant bird that consumes itself with fire and is then resurrected from the ashes.”

What is important for the reader to consider is that the other realms to which the elves, gnomes, wee folk and the like take their abductees are underground, or accessed from points underground. Some definitions from the essay Deep Dwellers by Mike Mott expound on this. The reader may note that these underground worlds are not synonymous with the hollow portion of the Earth, nor are any of the underground worlds mentioned in this essay. Rather, they relate to some inner crust existence.

Mike Mott: “ their subterranean countries were Alfheim, a land of eternal twilight, and home to the unpredictable but often mild-tempered elf-folk; and Svartalfheim, the kingdom of the dark elves or dwarves, a stunted, hairy, unfriendly race which was nevertheless quite clever in terms of technological skills. Nidvellir was another kingdom of the dwarves, perhaps not as negatively-disposed toward humanity as those of Svartalfheim. Muspelheim, land of the fire-giants, was also reached via Yggdrasil, but was separated from all other reaches by the width of the great vastness of Ginnungagap. Muspelheim was located in the far southern reaches of the underworld realms.”

Final Thoughts
People describe being underground with these kinds of presences as ‘able to think but not able to act on it’…this sounds dangerous! Sounds Demonic! When the miners use dynamite for explosions, the activity seems to increase, much like a house under renovations-‘ghosts’ come out of the woodwork! Sound familiar?

THE PAST HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE FUTURE!! I believe some of these creatures were conjured up by these secret societies for the purpose of guarding their gold, but little did they know these creatures actually guarded it for their gods!

    It’s not that you’re the only one, it’s just you’re the only Christian woman, besides Pastor Michael Hoggard with this perspective on this subject matter. I needed to clarify that.

    September 26, 2013 at 10:55 AM

    • Rick

      Look up Dan Duval online. He’s a good preacher I’ve found and he is also a rare Christian preacher who speaks on these types of subjects. At least he does during his radio podcasts. I will look up Michael Hoggard.

      September 26, 2013 at 11:03 AM

    • Mr Hoggard and I became friends a few years back. GOD told me to send him some info, he needed it. He replied back that he didn’t really think this ‘Ascended Master’ stuff was real but he would read more. Next thing I know he’s preaching on it! I said, GOD THANK YOU! GOD is awesome…I’m just a messenger~. Mike is a powerful pastor! Love him! Love,V

    At the end of this Post, you said, “THE PAST HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE FUTURE!!” Idk why, but that really stood out to me when I saw that the newest Post was about the X-Files. The first movie in that franchise was called, “The X-Files: Fight the Future”. Now more than ever, I see and recognize patterns and symbols EVERYWHERE. So either its an eerie coincidence, or you made one heck of a segue!

      Well, it wasn’t intended. I just happen to publish these one after the other. I give GOD all the credit! Praise GOD! Love, V

    The New Age in Nursing Theory
    Some recent attempts at constructing a comprehensive theory of nursing along the lines
    of Eastern religious philosophy are notably consistent with popular New Age thought. This
    theoretical framework will be explored by focusing on the work of two theorists; Jean Watson,
    of the University of Colorado School of Nursing and Martha Rogers of New York University.

    I forgot to post the link for the above on “New Age Nursing’ and I guess we assume someone
    is not a Christian when we start to read something like that, but I guess that’s not the case.

She specialized in the mental health of school age youth. More recently she earned a post-masters certificate from Vanderbilt University as a Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practicioner (PMHNP). She passed the state nursing board exam as a psychiatric nurse practitioner for the state of North Carolina. So, BC indicates that she is Board Certified. She is legally qualified to diagnose and treat patients, including prescribing medications, for mental health problems.

    Alan earned a PhD in religious and theological studies from Denver University/Iliff School of Theology. His doctoral program in Religion and Social Change focused on the intersection of social sciences (history, sociology, international studies), ethics, and theology in the study of religion and culture.

    Alan currently teaches theology, apologetics, and missiology in several institutions including the Seminário Martin Bucer and Faculdade Teológica Batist do Paraná, both in Brazil, as well as Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. Kathy is active as a nurse practitioner in Gastonia and Charlotte, NC. Together, we are missionaries with United World Mission. We travel to Brazil regularly to teach and minister there.

    • Very interesting. I didn’t read all of it but I got the jest. I’m no judge, nor jury so I will leave it at that. We all must meet our MAKER and explain our deeds, and when it does happen…oh it will happen! When it does, we can only pray GOD will have mercy on us all. Peace & Blessings-V
