Resonating with the Elementals

Adora as a girl's name is of Greek, Old German and Latin origin, and the meaning of Adora is "a gift," "beloved," "adored."

Deva in the New Age movement refers to the Spiritual Forces or Elemental Beings of energy and vibration that make up nature.

According to Theosophists, 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 that there are numerous different types of Devas with a countless population supporting Earth's ecological alignment with their resonant Energies.

In addition, Theosophists believe that there are Devas living inside the Sun, which make up the indwelling Solar Deity called the Solar Logos. These Devas are called Solar Angels, or sometimes Solar Devas or Solar Spirits. It is believed they visit Earth and can be observed like other Devas by some humans, whose third eyes have been activated. Theosophists believe that there are also Devas living inside all the other stars besides Sol, they are refered to as Stellar Angels.

In the Findhorn material, the term Deva refers to archetypal spiritual intelligences behind species, in other words the "group soul" of a species.

Some New Age sources use Deva as a generic term to designate any light body being composed of etheric matter... elementals, nature spirits including the fairies, ondines and sylphs.

Hodson, Geoffrey, Kingdom of the Gods, 1952, ISBN 0-7661-8134-0 contains color pictures of what Devas supposedly look like when observed by the third eye. Their appearance is reputedly like colored flames about the size of a human being. His paintings represent of some of the Devas seen by Hodson.
