The Vulnerable Heart


It is the vulnerable heart, the heart that is willing to be hurt that is open to give and receive Love. Nature bids the outcome.

Your Magic springs from the admiration of this alignment, respect for the balance adorned with sweet blood that runs through you and the Earth herself.

Ride the waves in ecstatic wonder, let the wind and mist sweep across your skin. Each moment of your awareness brings the shimmering golden balance to all that is within and without.

It is You who are the gentle, divine arms that embrace, nurture and part the branches to let in the cascading sun.

Mythology, Mysticism and Magic: C.G. Jung The Artist, Mystic and Prophet


It seems the Elven World gives us much more than community. The Celtic mythology that is revivified in Elven World, allows us to begin a transformative experience; filling our lives with magic and beauty that lifts us closer to the divine.

Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller, Ph.D is an eminent scholar on the subject of C. G. Jung’s Red Book, the mysterious work that was published in 2009– 48 years after Jung’s death. Carl Jung is primarily known as the founder of psychoanalytic philosophy. Few know that Jungian psychology began with what Dr. Heoller calls a “psycho cosmology” that emerged directly from Jung’s work as an artist, visionary, philosopher and prophet.

Dr. Hoeller defines Jung as a prophet who told the truth of the Gods–that multi-dimensional transcendent power that animates our spiritual lives. The Red Book is an account of Jung’s transformational journey toward the divine using imagery and mythological messages from deep within his psyche. Rich with symbolic paintings and every word written in calligraphy by the Master himself, the Red Book is a profound artistic masterpiece.

A consummate student of the Red Book for many years, Dr Heoller is able to explain the meaning and messages within this work of art written by Carl Jung’s hand in Swiss German. The book is bright red. Fully opened it is and some 26 inches across and some 24 inches high. The Red Book is full of mystical, symbolic drawings that open a window to a universe within the soul of man.  Jung communicated his divine journey–which is the journey of any man–through his conversations with mythological creatures and supernatural beings. He predicted the coming of a new age through his words and paintings of visionary mandalas and creation of sacred icons.

Of this work Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller explained, “The magical is what feeds our soul. If you let it, life sinks to a level of blandness. Gray consciousness happens when all the magic is gone; all the imagination. A human being does not live by material things alone. Human beings can’t live without hope, spirit, poetry, beauty, and mythology. An absence of the magical makes life gray and bland. God is alive. Magic is alive.”

As Dr. Heoller tells us, the psycho cosmology expressed in Jung’s work tells of the divinity indwelling in the human being. When one has contact with that in dwelling entity, the joyful bliss for which we search, comes alive. Jung’s journey was a journey of transcendence to this divinity through the supernatural, magical, mystical and divine initiation; a change of consciousness toward a new beginning; toward the blissful ecstasy of living in the present.

We can feel very blessed that scholars such as Dr. Stephan Heoller Ph.D, can teach with  expressive truth, this interpretation of Jung as an artist, philosopher and mythologist that allows us to begin a transformative experience in our lives as magic and beauty lifts us.

Elven World is a new story in Celtic mythology. And our place in the Elven World is a transformative, magical journey to find the divine within and without, through mythological and artistic expression.

Elven World Blessing – Breathing Air, T.E. Pelton, Elven World Mythologies


If you are reading this, you are Tuatha de Danann, tribe of the goddess Danu. You are Elven, beings of Light, golden; children of the stars and Earth as One. – T.E. Pelton, Elven World Mythologies

We are living the legend of now.

Opening our hearts in this now. Radiant like the sun.

And breathing, taking it all in, refreshing it and then letting go of that breath.

Air is the unseen we all share, where we go when we are completely one with all life and death. Take it in. And let it go with the next breath. This is our rhythm of returning to source.

Contemplation of such things is the beauty of being here in human form

You are being asked to strengthen your connection to the Natural world at this time, to restore the connection to your heart space, feel at home beyond the four walls of this dimension.

We are beings of light, our magic is love, our appreciation is peace.

Know that the love you give is a drop that will soon be an ocean to heal our planet.

You are the children of the New World. You are legend. You are divine.

– T.E. Locke

Nature: How 3 White Heron Grace The Elven


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.

Prayer For Ogma, Tuatha de Danann God of Eloquence and Humor


Blessings; May you feel the Elvensong within, dance to the rhythm of the sun and hear our voices who speak from your heartspace. We are Tuatha de Danann, the children of Earth and the heavens together. –T.E. Pelton

Ogma (pronounced OG-ma, sometimes spelled Ogme or Oghma) of the Tuatha de Danann, is known as the God of eloquence and language, scholars, education and writing. He is said to have invented the early Irish alphabet called Ogham.

Ogham served as the alphabet for ancient Celtic languages

Now, it is lesser known, although much more true in fact, that Ogma has a highly developed wit, commonly viewed as a ridiculous sense of humor and about which much has been kept secret–deep in the caverns of Tir na n’Og*. This is of course, because most humans tend to view their lives far too seriously. So when Ogma appears, they tend not to notice.

When composing “reasonable” literature, Ogme has an imposing stature with long blonde hair and deep resonant voice. But he prefers, and will be most often found transformed into a fool. He will harbor in certain trees and wild animals, although, of course, when humans do see him it is most often in the antics of their pets (tail chasing, and other slaphappy activities.)

Humans desire to keep Gods a sensible matter. So, if you are fortunate enough to be reading this, then you’ve been tipped off to the real secret of life: the Gods do appear in the most nonsensical places. Ogma has been known to cheer unrequited lovers and others in the form of cats who chase string, and the entertaining antics of dogs that fly upside down through your hallways and even wag their tails while sleeping. And yes, your favorite comics are absolutely blessed by Oghma.

We call upon you, Ogma, in whatever form you might well appear, to guide us to see the finer, and yet more preposterous side of life and ask that you will bless us on this day to laugh at ourselves, find the wacky, sappy and silly and bring it into our lives.

Laughter does not judge
Laughter waits for no man
No homage or expectation.
Coming from a place
Far beyond human’s limited dimension;
The bull who winks,
The tree who dances,
The dog knows well he is scratching his behind
For your more than an itch,
But for the chance
To transport us back to ourselves.
And to remember: life is a play
Played by us;
Where we learn love
Not as a sorrowful expression of inevitable sadness,
But to cherish the goofy dance we find ourselves making.
To remember we are the fools
Watching ourselves.

Prayer to Scota, Mistress of Illusion


Blessings; May you feel the Elvensong within, dance to the rhythm of the sun and hear our voices who speak from your heartspace. We are Tuatha de Danann, the children of Earth and the heavens together. –T.E. Pelton

Scota is one of the primary characters in Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom where she is the lover of Angus, God of Music, and the sister of Lugh, the Shining One. She teaches magic to Aine, the

Modern Celtic scholars believe that Scota was the eponymous founder of Scotland. An Egyptian princess, daughter of a Pharaoh, Scota settled with her eight children and their families in what is now Scotland where she became known as Queen. Her grave is said to be in Tralee just South of County Kerry in Ireland.

In the Elven World mythologies, Scota is one of the Sisters of Illusion and she is a highly skilled master. Her distinguished and most celebrated power is the ability to turn anything from the negative to the positive. She knows that all we see before us in this Earthly dimension is illusion. She is able to mold, change and form energy bundles and streams into manifestations of light, perceived as reality.

I make my request of the Master to teach me; I call upon your name, knowing you will respond in kind regardless of barriers of time or space.

Scota I ask you to guide my soul in the way of seeing beyond time, beyond the physical into the world of light.

I ask you to teach me sight beyond the boundaries of space that was decided for me upon entry to this mortal world.

Teach me the way to harmony with all potential outcomes and wisdom to choose the manifestation that serves my soul’s expression.

Help me to live in my body as an articulation of this life’s purpose: to speak with a voice, kiss with lips, walk with radiance and dance with abandon.

Teach me to love with heart full open and be unafraid of death in any form, for it is only transformation.

Unfasten the doors that lead me to a world where I am music: of animals, plants, sky, sea and soil; Where I can lay in the streams and breathe the air through me with you as one elvensong.

Help us to love our planet and enhance her gifts.

Blessings. May you feel the Elven spirit within you, the magical infinite space of divinity and from which all that appears to be, takes form.

Elven World Blessing: Lugh, The Shining One


Blessings. May you feel the Elven spirit within you, the magical infinite space of divinity and from which all that appears to be, takes form.–T.E. Pelton

We may call upon the Elven Gods and Goddesses, the Tuatha de Danann, Children of the Earth Mother, evolved souls. Today I call upon Lugh, the Shining One, for Courage, Discipline and Strength.

Lugh, The Shining One: God of Courage, Discipline, Strength

Strong and radiant, Lugh is the God of the Sun, master of all skills including carpentry, masonry, Druidry and poetry. He is a smith of precious metals and a doctor of healing.

There are many memorable ancient tales of Lugh and his adventures.  Then, of course, there is Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom – the tale of Lugh returning to our Earth at this time.   He is the archetypal and quintessential hero of universal protection.

We call in Lugh’s Name for the gathering of forces: wind, fire, water and earth to bless upon us now, the characteristics of strength, discipline and courage.

I ask the universal forces to summon the power of the Great Spirit, Lugh, to my side in this moment and shed upon me his powerful light of courage, strength and discipline to guide me.

Lugh, I call upon your strength

Your powerful arms to lift me

From rejection

From grief that tries to swallow my heart

Lift me and let me fly with you

Soaring as we meet the Eagle, the Raven and the Hawk

Lugh, I call upon you for courage

To jump the wide canyon

With faith the wind will lift us

Courage to speak the words

That are forbidden–and yet necessary

Courage to give life to ideas

Knowing they are blessed

From a higher Source than myself.

I ask for your guidance in discipline

To know and follow the Way

To press out through the briars and thorns

Knowing I will reach the fine sweet meadow.

For dedicated Practice to hone my skills

To perfection

And Pride that I have done so.

Blessings .

Elven World Blessings: Message to Us Sept 16, 2010


Blessings. May you feel the Elven spirit within you, the magical infinite space of divinity and from which all that appears to be, takes form.

I am not intending to translate messages from the Otherworld, I have been intending to write my next book, practice my singing do my daily work and chores and generally enjoy life all ’round.  But these messages are coming through – loudly. Waking me up in the night, demanding I write down these words for you.  I realize it could be more eloquent. I realize it could be in a better or perhaps more aesthetic form.  But there is a sense of urgency to these messages, an insistence that they are delivered n o w, not next year when books are published or even tomorrow.

If you believe in the faery, the elven, the higher masters, those from other dimensions who travel to ours to help, or guide or even play, listen to these words. Some people may see or even hear the people of other dimensions, some may not.  But the message put into words, as I have translated for you here, is hard to miss. And I am sure it is being given for a reason, a true need.   Blessings on this powerful day – T.E. Pelton

Message:

It is requested for crystal light beings, those of the Elven way and others who do understand, to channel light energy as much as possible at this time. It is requested that to provide blessings to help turn Earth energies to the positive and move the planet into a higher more peaceful, harmonious state. “Do not wait or ask for money or even do it apart from everyday living. We ask you to find consciously each day five people upon whom you may shed this blessing of love and infinite tranquility. Go to them, put your hand upon them as a method to channel; or if you cannot touch them physically, locate their unique vibration by any means possible or known to you. Yes, it helps to breathe, envision, sing and other techniques. But mostly it helps to listen. Just listen. Once you have connected, shed light. You will not be devoid of light then or have light taken from you but instead you will be blessed and receive more supreme light channeled through you. Go ahead and do it. You are also artists, so you may easily make connection there- this is purpose of art in the new age – to channel the great wisdom. You are not required to heal although people will be healed. You are not required to chant, although you may do so if it pleases you.It is not necessary to provide a title, or name to it. We ask you to take the hand to send the light – Just begin, you will see.”
