The Elven Way: How to Live With Humans: Growing


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

Without darkness, there is no light.

To see requires darkness to be present. To feel the contrast between darkness and light, is to be alive. When we choose experience, the flood of emotion will undoubtedly come. It is our consciousness that chooses to see that as divinely inspired; as growth, discovery and learning. Then we sing in harmony with Nature’s resonant sound.

When we are hurt by words and actions, when we are hurt by stupidity, cruelty and lack of compassion we are like the tree that has bent her branches down to allow the children to climb her most easily, who then feels the pain of being cut into and abandoned.

It is not possible for her to reach out and stay the hand that will cut her. The only way she could not feel is to be dead.

It is the tree who continues to grow in grace, who repairs her wounds, and who continues to provide shade, that is divine beauty. When you admire her, you are asking for her protection from harm. You are asking for harmony for all living things. You are asking for peace.

It is rarely possible to use the mind to comprehend the pain or even to discover the cause of it and stop it. But we can admire the divinity in it, we can admire the opportunity for life, for feeling itself. And we can anticipate joy. We know that unless the branch does fall, there is no joy in growing anew.

And we can feel admiration for the child who hurt us; knowing in compassion, that his wounds may be deeper than our own.

For those of us living the Elven Way, we know that life brings to us the vision of our own heart expressed in Nature.

The flight of birds, opening of a flower, the rushing stream, the falling leaves, the explosions of fire, birth of a seed and the death of those we hold dear. All of these expressions and many more are speaking to us are guiding us and teaching us. To this, we listen.

Blessings
Thank you JP for your friendship and soft guidance.

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.

Discoveries of the Heart


The consciousness which is merely the animal consciousness is made up of the consciousness of all of the cells in the body except those of the heart. The heart is king, the most important organ in the body of man. Even if the head is severed from the body, the heart will continue to beat for 30 minutes. It will beat for some hours if wrapped in cotton wool and put in a warm place. The spot in the heart which is the last of all to die is the seat of life, the center of all, Brahma, the first spot that lies in the fetus and the last to die.” – Mme. Blavatsky, 1987, quote excerpted from The One True Adventure by Joy Mills. Learn more about Blavatsky

“The heart is more than a single pump. The heart is, in fact, a highly complex, self organized information processing center with its own functioning brain that communicates with and influences the the cranial brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body’s major organs and ultimately determine the quality of life. – excerpted from http://www.heartmath.org/

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.”


Elven Way : Joyfulness in Life’s Simplicity


Life is simple. It is waking each day with appreciation, sweeping your home, caring for your animals, growing your plants, washing, and working in your personal, chosen profession; a place where you feel competent, where you become more competent with each day. It is greeting your friends and conversations about the world’s phenomenon. It is honoring your parents, and helping them and so, so much learning, learning, learning! The world is so large and full, with so much to discover and more to admire. Life is doing all you can to care for your children and giving them the best life possible for the advancement of your name and our world at large.  And life is sleep, wherein we may experience intense solace, wisdom and connection with our Earth, the stars and dimensions beyond.  Each thought in this motion of a day, each moment of appreciation, listening, smile and conversations—this, is the whirling dance, the delicious taste, the passionate song that is life.

Elven Blessing: Message from the Ascended Masters


Now is the time for you, which is we, for all of us to be in the direction of peace and the spread this message out to the world in every possible form. We have sent many messengers, some who were able to reach into the world, though often their messages have been adulterated. This is why, at this time, we are communicating directly to each of you on a multi-dimension level– communicating directly–as your ancestors have done in the past. This is a communication directly to you at a spiritual level, or in your words, telepathically.

Whatever helps you to focus on this message, or better said, to align with this message is good.  What is helpful to many to hear our song for you, is to be in harmony with Nature, to listen to your body’s messages and to speak from the heart.  This sound and vibration can be put into many packages. It can be a blessing, put into song. It can be the dance that you do each morning upon awakening. It can be the watering of your plants, feeding of your animals, washing of your body and clothes. It can be the voice that speaks to your children in solace, it is the sound of the silence as you drink water to cool and soothe you. It is the song of the children who are new, it is the song of the dying because they are so close to the light.

There is not some evil in the world that we are trying to prevent, although there is a vibration that seeks to do harm. Our best and only defense is the mind itself–the teaching of the mind to stand and listen to guidance radiating upon you.

The truth is you cannot help but listen it is your natural state of being at all times.  So in a way you can say it is you are listening to yourself, we are not separate from you, we are the Ascended Masters which are you, here , now in this moment, in this wondrous song of life.

Blessings on this day Sept 4, 2010

Elven: Blessing for Aine (Anya) Goddess of Love


Elven prayer to Aine the Goddess of Love–T.E. Pelton

Let you touch the crown

Of my children’s head

So they will grow strong

Your magic dust

Cover my lips

To attract my lover’s kiss

Stay the hand of he who fells the trees

Let him discover

A way he can work within your fair garden

Steady the hand

Of one who plants seed

Near his home and in the fields

Let the sound of your ecstasy

Fill the void to the corners of the Earth

Let the pink rose blossom

The fruit ripen on the tree

Ready for me to taste you

Feed the water of my soul’s delight

Be in every budding flower

Touch me with the wisdom

Of every morning’s dew

Oh come into my world

Fill me with the essence of your love

I will join you

In each budding flower

Lifting my face to the sunlight

Falling softly upon my sweet skin

Opening for more

Elven Way: Messages from the Animals


Note from T.E. Pelton, Elven World

Last night we saw two grey coated coyote.

In this case they seem to be a symbol of family, of taking care of one another, sticking together and making it go right to survive.

They are hungry right now and they could use a little extra help. I know quite a few people who could use some extra help, too. And quite a few people who benefit from teamwork and an extended family.

There is always a message for us.

Blessings.
