Salamanders are Elemental Creatures who mainly live in the Aetherial (Etheric) Plane, a different kind of existence, an alternative world, which we cannot easily perceive while we are in our human bodies. As we will explain in a different article, there are several Planes of existence and perception. The occult and religious sources disagree on how many they are, where they are, what dwells there and how we can access them, but they agree in one thing. There are Different planes, some have more extended wisdom than our physical world and some have more restricted freedom and heavier burdens than ours.
The Aetherial Plane is a term used to describe a Lighter World, where Wisdom is more accesible that ours, where magic is more obvious and powerful and we are closer to the Source of all that is Good, some may describe it as God(s), Goddess(es) or in another way.
Salamanders dwell in that Plane yet have access to other planes such as ours exactly as we are able to access other Planes via Astral Projection (a supernatural power we all possess and we are going to describe in a different article Soon!).

Salamanders are Elemental Creatures of Fire, but not all Elementals of Fire are Salamanders!
This is a very common and unbased mistake if I may comment. As our level of p
erception is limited in our physical plane, we are not able to access and describe these Planes in detail. But what we do know, is that charismatic and powerful shamans, priests and sorcerers of all time from all around the world, describe several Kingdoms and Tribes of Elementals of Fire.
Salamanders as Elementals of Fire are also associated with the homonymous amphibians. Aristotle, Pliny and Dioscurides refer to these animals as Fire-Proof which also have access to the power of the Element. Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa in the famous book: Of Occult Philosophy, refers to Salamanders: "...So Salamanders, and Crickets live in the Fire; although they seem sometimes to burn, yet they are not hurt..." Scientifically speaking Salamanders produce a saliva which insulates them from the heat. It is very common to see a Salamander standing in fire without seeming to harm it, especially in the past years where fire places where more common in houses.
The animals, Salamanders are indeed the physical expression of the elemental creatures yet they are not elementals. I want this to make it perfectly Clear! Don't ever throw a Salamander in Fire to see if it bears the Fire. Salamanders are Endangered species! The connection and association between the Animals and the Elementals is in a way similar to another Animal and its Totem Archetype Spirit!
Back to our Elementals, Salamanders are described as Creatures who have power over the Element of Fire as Aristotle more wisely than Pliny explains. They are described as passionate, wise and impulsive Creatures! Those who co-operate with Salamanders know that Salamanders should be treated in a respectful and enthusiastic way because this are the Earthly expression of the Fiery Qualities. Salamanders according to some occultists live together with other Fiery Creatures and cooperate like the Phoenix.
In alchemy Salamanders symbolize Fire itself and the progress of a Soul towards the Sun (the Divine Light).
Salamanders can be called by Wizards, Shamans, Sorcerers, Mages, Witches and Alchemists as familiar creatures to aid them in their work. Salamanders are Wise counselors especially when it comes to Fire Magic and Wisdom. But always remember that Salamanders DEMAND your respect and enthusiasm.
