We join as a family across the globe to pray for our mother earth. Please pray with us. – T.E. Pelton, Author Elven World mythologies
YES!!! I throw up my arms and call to the sky.
The past is not the present. I am here, now, living, loving, admiring with the eyes of the gods in that divine place between the heavens and the ardent, fiery center of the Earth.
I see the white heron rising from the bush and appreciate her breath, strength, majesty and sense of adventure.
I have vanquished the hideous; rendering the wicked unable because my sword of light is Love.
I am learning to wield its power with ever-greater depth and fortitude; polishing it to shine and protect.
I am joyful with a sense of belonging that comes from the best of humanity – that connection with friends who inspire and comfort in moments of quiet passion.
This is the Golden Light of my Fellows – You!
I have ended decades of suffering as enlightenment flows to me from within
I am willing to kill the façade of truth to let the true light in which is known by her goodness.
I am beyond the limit of my body, my name or personality or any boundaries of the third dimension, receiving guidance as Nature, as the Fae and Elven that imbue the inanimate with sparkling life energy and by every name which she is known. I who am One with all that is, was and will be, beyond time and space.
I am touched throughout in an infinite ocean of light.

Blessings; May you feel the Elven song within, hear the voice who speak from your heart space. We are Tuatha de Danann, the children of Nature and the stars. –T.E. Pelton
A quick note to commemorate one of the most beautiful things I have seen lately, or even ever so far in my life:
On the morning of 1.11.11 I walked out by the river under the San Gabriel mountains where I saw 3 great white heron sitting at the top of the tree, taking in the expanse with their vivid curiosity and divine wisdom. They were so mesmerizing I stopped for a long while just to drink in their beauty. I felt the their golden light fill me with radiance, compassion; My heart opened. Ah, One is becoming a new person moment by moment.
Tribal. Rhythmic. Living Art. Faerieworlds is an experience in modern myth-making, magic and ceremony created spontaneously. It is living art in color, song, costume and dance.
The vibration of the space created at Mount Pisgah in Eugene Oregon for Faerieworlds, is formed with lights that bless the circle, establishing the sacred space before the ceremonies begin. A stage with enormous wings goes up, waiting for the artists who grace it with sounds in a style resonant with otherworldliness, rich with elements of earth, air, fire and water expressed through Celtic drum, harp, cello and long trance notes sung by women with sinewy voices.
While many of the visitors and vendors are visiting from Renaissance or middle ages festivals, the vibration here is mythical. The magic you find here is not slight of hand, but a tentative step toward real magic, a space that is being reborn purely from common memory, from heart. One that is much, much older and shamanistic.
Costumes are professionally done with care to every intricate detail, any one of these designs being the product of talented artists, imagination and abandon. Winged creations in bright flowing colors, belly jewels and body paint, they express the visions of the faery that come to us, shimmering, ethereal, other worldly. Watching them dance in the faerie circles, and parade through the walking “streets” is watching living, breathing art.
It is mind-blowing to see this creation, this art form take place before your eyes engaging your participation. The line between the artist and the audience fades and we all become the art itself–expressing to the divine source, our message of appreciation and delight. At one point, dancers whose belts are harnessed in the trees, float down among us in their sparkling, sinewy expression, reminding us that magic is right here all the time; it is you who open to its perception.
The most common words you hear spoken here at Faerieworlds are: “amazing”, “wonderful”, “love”, “heart.” The air contains more than oxygen, it sparkles and holds faeriedust that makes everyone mellow and relaxed, respectful of all life, each other and the universe. I am enjoying my friends many of who have been named for the natural world or to honor their totem animals such as: Sparrow, Raven and Rain.
A friend of mine, Spring, has been taking photos of Faerieworlds for many years, (I’m hoping she’ll post them up on elvenworld.ning.com soon!). She captures the space in the lens right at dusk, when the light of the camera and the light of the sun are in such a way to show the faeries to our human eyes; which has been called the time when the “veil between the world is thin.” Her photos show tens of thousands of “faerie orbs”: white or gently colored orbs that look like bubbles fill the air, rising up from the stage and gently floating and sparkling all around the place.
If you believe in faeries now, this place is as close as you’ll get to “home” that exists on Earth. If you weren’t sure about the faeries before this experience, no one will convince you, only welcome you into our world to participate in this spontaneous praise to the gods and goddesses of the Earth.
Undoubtedly, as you dance into the wee hours of the morning with tribal drums playing as you watch the sun rise, you too will know what it feels like to have been with the faery and my guess is, you too, will keep this precious experience close to your heart, as a source of inspiration, a feeling of intense community and love that you can hold in your totems, art, jewels or crafts you take home with you, keeping you close to the faery all year long, until at last, it is time for Faerieworlds again. See you there! www.faerieworlds.com
Are you Elven? Are you Fae? Do you have magickal blood running through your veins?
So begins the poetic message that introduces a modern legend Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha dé Danann Kingdom.
Tuatha dé Danann means “tribe or children of the Goddess Danu.” Danu is the Earth or Earth Goddess.
People of this race are also known as Elven or Fae.
It is known that the Tuatha dé Danann civilization flourished on Earth more than five thousand years ago. Ancient Irish legend tells the story: that upon arrival of the Milesian, the Tuatha dé Danann disappeared into another dimension with their magic. Entrances to the Other World appear in sacred sites such as Hill of Tara and Newgrange in Ireland.
Tuatha de Danann
The message of the Tuatha dé Danann is so strong it calls to us through the ages––with the belief that the Earth is sacred and the source of our magical power. Thousands around the world consider they are members of this illustrious tribe guiding us to find our harmonious place in the ecological system of the planet. Their voices bespeak our connection to our higher selves and teach us to develop our magical skills as spirits of Nature.
Return of the Elven to Our World Today
Elven World is continuation of the story that began so long ago, with the return of the Tuatha dé Danann to our world today. It is a legend that embraces multiple dimensions, where time travel is ordinary and where our place upon the Earth and in the cosmos is revered.
This story is expressed to youth of today in this first novel of a series called Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom, a delightful, magical adventure of the Elven gods and goddesses. Full of adventure, romance and a sense of humor not often found in modern storytelling, it may appeal to young people who are searching for higher meaning in their lives. It will find its place among those who count themselves a crystal, indigo, highly sensitive, empaths and especially loving toward Nature Spirits, as well as those interested in Celtic lore.
