Re HPB's control of the "elementals".
You wrote in part: "your question regarding Elementals, Elementals followed
HPB when young and when young she could not control them. After 3 years in
Tibet she was able to control them." [ See S. Cranston book bio. "H P B"
It is said that whenever an Adept incarnates he / she has to master the new
personality so acquired. Master KH in MAHATMA LETTERS gives us an instance
"Every human being contains within himself vast potentialities, and it is
the duty of the adepts to surround the would-be chela with circumstances
which shall enable him to take the "right-hand path," -- if he have the
ability in him. We are no more at liberty to withhold the chance from a
postulant than we are to guide and direct him into the proper course. At
best, we can only show him after his probation period was successfully
terminated -- that if he does this he will go right; if the other, wrong.
But until he has passed that period, we leave him to fight out his battles
as best he may; and have to do so occasionally with higher and initiated
chelas such as H.P.B., once they are allowed to work in the world, that all
of us more or less avoid.
More than that -- ....we allow our candidates to be tempted in a thousand
various ways, so as to draw out the whole of their inner nature and allow it
the chance of remaining conqueror either one way or the other. ...
We were all so tested; and while a Moorad Ali -- failed -- I, succeeded. The
victor's crown is only for him who proves himself worthy to wear it; for him
who attacks Mara single handed and conquers the demon of lust and earthly
passions; and not we but he himself puts it on his brow.
It was not a meaningless phrase of the Tathagata that "he who masters Self
is greater than he who conquers thousands in battle": there is no such other
difficult struggle. If it were not so, adeptship would be but a cheap
acquirement." M L 316

In response to your question regarding Elementals, Elementals followed HPB
when young and when young she could not control them. After 3 years in
Tibet she was able to control them. They have no sense. They are behind
all phenomenon and fakirs. A strong light can effect them. When asked,
what prevents the Elementals from taking over the human kingdom, I was
told that Aura keeps them away from Man. It acts as a protective shield
unless the spiritual aura is darkened through materialistic tendencies, it
will lose its protective abilities. Will can also determine their impact,
if you become passive you open yourself to danger, as in the case of
Mediums who do not have a strong enough will to protect themselves.
So getting back to Crop Circles, if the elementals are behind this
phenomenon, is it reasonable to accept that some intelligent force is
