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.

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
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, the love that made all. –T.E. Pelton, author Elven World mythologies
The intensity of the Earth’s spinning is such a magnificent influence on our lives, there is no choice at this time but to attempt to communicate in words the unspeakable, to attempt to define the wave of physical and non physical in an eternal dance; the rapture of which poets sing.
The movement of the Earth mother is a living force expression not separate from ourselves.
Every pang upon the heart of your beloved is a pang upon your own heart, no matter how far away and no matter how small the beat. Birth and death come and flow within the river of all life where time is not; where past, present or future are not, where there is only an ocean of love-making between the physical and non physical worlds. This is why you feel deep passionate emotion for which there is no direct tangible or viewable source as humanity and animal kind suffers. Even as you feel the weight of these passions, know that in death we are all freed and that the only cause of fear is death.
Yes, you are being compelled to put aside your heart/mind to make sacred each day’s experience, allowing the magical, the miraculous to enter your life. Throw wide the gates to heaven and put yourself into the hands of energies and meaning beyond the ability of merely five sense to comprehend.
We have no choice whether to see beauty in the eyes of humanity, passion in the volcanic explosion and the enlightenment of death. We have no choice but to raise our eyes and feel the whispers of the bird in flight, and attune our bodies to the natural world from where we come and where we will return.
In a swirl of love that created all the cosmos and our Earth; Love that assumes form as desired and communicates not across space but as a listening from within, being one with the communicator, receiver and the message.

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.
Elven World is available at amazon.com or by special order at your local bookstore. The author writes inspirational Elven Blessings upon request at the even social network www.elvenworld.ning.com or meet her on Twitter as “ElvenWorld”
In the modern world it was Einstein, with his theory of relativity, who popularized Time Travel in the magazines and on TV, opening the doors so long closed, to its “real possibility” and igniting our imaginations.
Ancient worlds may have had the techniques and technology of time travel long ago, but few records of that exists except in collective memory mainly relegated to legend and mythstill too fantastic to be real.
Perhaps it is just plain comfortable to consider the third dimension to be the “real” world and relegate Time Travel to the subject of “science fiction.” Comfortable is good. Comfortable like sitting in a soft armchair petting your cat instead of flying a rocket ship chased by energy gripping enemies. Yes, comfortable is good.
Yet, it’s a fresh, new world of possibilities when we contemplate “string theory” or the “theory of everything” advanced mathematicians study. In these mathematical languages we exist in but one of eleven or twelve dimensions.
Again, science touches the divine. We are all waiting for the complete embrace.
If Time exists only because of our consideration of it, then we are able to move through time at will. What we consider to be “real” is real. If we all were in 11 different dimensions at once…. Well, I imagine this could make conversation kind of complex causing a need for inter-dimensional translators and whatnot. Because, of course, we are only communicating now because you and I both believe in the “reality” that matches the significances of each word I type. 😉
It is as if we walk through a web of infinite potentialities that come in to being as they are chosen, only for the moments they are chosen to exist as reality. Which of course means that there is all time and no time at all times! And there is a constant choice, conscious or unconscious, to remain in this time.
As for me i am contemplating my conscious choice with a great deal of admiration.
Our Earth is a blessed place. We are Elven: beings of light and color, sound and vibration, song beyond words that matches the rhythm of the sun.
This blog deals with all things Elven: time and space travel, healing, Earth sciences and energy, Quantum physics, magical skills, art in all forms; metaphysical and spiritual wisdom. It also addresses all things to do with the Tuatha de Danann, Children of the goddess Danu, Elven, Fae, Faery, and their home in Ireland, Tara HIll as well as their new home in the sacred forests of Northwest America, home of the redwood.
