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, Crystal, Indigo and Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP)


Crystal, Indigo and Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) will  particularly enjoy “Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom”.

Why?

Because as Elven we understand the depth of our relationship to Nature.

Because as Crystal, Indigo and HSP we embody the vibration that will restore harmony between humankind and Nature

Because we are an embodiment of the divine in human form.

Because we can easily and readily communicate across dimensional realities or beyond the third dimension into other realities.

Because we are far from being strange – we are connected to a higher reality and Because I receive guidance to say these words.

Because it can provide solace when we are out here on our own, not to feel lonely, different or strange, but instead ….

To feel welcome and brilliant and meaningful and proud to be here as ourselves in the fabric of life.

Save Tara Hill in Ireland, Our Last Chance is Right Now


tara-aerial-1
Tara Hill is the spiritual capital of Ireland and is a major cultural and historical monument beloved by people all over the world.

Tara was a center of civilization seven thousand years ago. When you consider that the oldest Egyptian tomb is 5,000 years old, the magnitude of Tara’s historical significance can be understood.

In April, 2009 at Tara Hill, scientists unearthed a wooden monument of the size and magnitude of Stonehenge.

Tara Hill was the seat of the pre-Celtic civilization of the Tuatha de Danann. Millions of people in Ireland and in fact, all over the world, consider themselves descendents of the Tuatha de Danann, or “Children of the Goddess Danu.” Danu is the goddess of the Earth and after whom the river Danube was named, among other cultural significances.

Modern legend as told in Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha De Danann Kingdom recently published by Rembrandt Press, continues the story that began in ancient legends about Tara Hill as the sacred dwelling place of the gods and the entrance to an Otherworld of the Faery and the Elven kingdom.

Many thousands from across the globe protest the construction of a new motorway through the Tara valley, which has placed this sacred place among the 100 most endangered heritage sites of the world.

www.TaraWatch.org has nominated the Tara to be a World Heritage Site, but can only do so on the condition that the M3 Motorway is re-routed because the destruction of the cultural heritage due to the motorway breaches the World Heritage Convention Otherwise, the Tara Hill complex qualifies for World Heritage Status as a natural and cultural landscape of universal value due to its cultural significance and extent of surviving remains.

If we can have the site designated as a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) World Heritage Status site, then changes would have to be made to re-route of the motorway which runs close to Tara Hill.

The vast majority of the Irish (70%) want the motorway to be re-routed away from the Hill. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights calls for governments to represent the people’s wishes

Legend of the Tuatha de Danann, Children of the Goddess Danu, Part I


waterfallElven Legend: Tuatha de Danann, Children of the goddess Danu, Earth Mother
Children of the Earth goddess
Whose voices echo from ages past

Are you buried under heavy mounds
Of grass and stone?

Or do you live among us?

How may we learn your magic?

Tuatha dé Danann in Gaelic means “tribe or children of the Goddess Danu.” Danu is the Earth or Earth Goddess.

People of this race are Elven or Fae.

It is known that their civilization flourished on Earth thousands of years ago. Yet there is little written or archeological history with details about their lives.

Despite this, their belief system is so strong it calls to us through the ages from our ancestors––with the belief that the Earth is sacred and the source of our magical power. They guide us to find our harmonious place in the ecological system of the planet. Their voices bespeak our connection to our higher selves. They are teaching us to develop our magical skills as spirits of Nature. (To be continued….)

Why have the Elven returned today? Is there a message for us? Are you Elven?

Message from the Elven, Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom


leaf_1_bg_010503Our spiritual perception fills our eyes with beauty of Nature: abundant, flowing, infinite.

Our Love is light in our hearts that fulfills us. The Light spills out to others, who soon become our friends.

This magic is so powerful, it extends beyond our home, our glen or farm. It reaches out across the world as a voice in echo, resounding through the canyons.

With this voice we will mold a world to a design in harmony with Our Mother Earth, Father Sea and Sky.

We will now create buildings that make music with the rush of blood in our bodies and structures that are at peace with our surrounds. Where songsgentlyblow across the rooftops and echo in perfect proportion through sleeping rooms, coffee shops and brightly decorated storefronts. It will now dance in the colorful dresses worn proudly as our women pass along the streets and in kisses that pass from fathers totheirchildren.

Now we forgive our human selves for the violations of the Earth that have cut so deep and instead focus our higher selves; our mind and heart to create, enhance and use our bright intellect and power of Thought.  All is mind, all is our infinite creation, our choice.  In our hands is the whole complete power to create a newness – completely at our command.

The Elven, our ancestors, are now with us, within us, whose blood courses through our veins have asked that we find several things and that we talk about them, bring them to the awareness and possibility,makingthese solutions commonplace, with our words, and ideas.

First, methods to restore purity to our water. Specifically, a substance which when added to water will naturally clear it.

Next, methods to biodegrade plastics and all substances that can be done in our waste “islands.” Specifically a substance which when sprayed on plastics will dissolve them

Next, replacing all products that cannot biodegrade in a reasonable period, with those that can. Specifically, lists of all these, architects and engineers who create them, marketing and proposals to get them into use.

Next, buildings which are built of natural substances but moreover that enhance the lives of participants andenvironmentby virtue of their harmonious, mathematically proportioned structure. All such buildings are engineered and powered with natural resources such as wind, water and earth energy and sun energy.

Restoration of existing structures to conform with our new ideals.

All such methods and means exist within arms length. All that is required is reaching for them, examining them, respecting them, focusing on them for periods of time so they will manifest.

We ask that you find these, writeaboutthem, speak about them, focus on them with your imagination and feel in your heart how it feels in this moment when this life exists: where billowing winds lifting you now into this world where we act in harmony with Nature, both within and without us.

Listen: hear the sounds of the children playing, see them lifting flowers to their lips and building new worlds in their mind’s eye as they place tiny stones in their gardens. Hear women talking in soft voices and see their smiles and hair that crownstheir smoothfaces. Rejoice in the fullness of the air of pride in your breast as you breathe in the sounds of men planning; men who are wise, men who are building waterways, who are teaching their sons mathematical perfection.

All of this and more as you see it, is yours in this moment, now.

You will make this be and much more, in right mind, just as you envision.

Until we meet again.

The Tree that Bent Down to Kiss the Children


montana_17_bg_062406

Perhaps you have a tree like this in your town.

In the park in my city there is an old oak tree that grows downward, instead of up to the sun.

Like a grandmother picking up children to place them on her knees, the heavy limbs of that tree’s bark is worn smooth by children who climb her day after day year after year.

She whispered softly that she’d grown downward to make it easy for the children.

Every limb is just the right size to sit or lay or put your arms around. She bends gracefully in a way that any child can rest or stretch or hold her in an embrace.

You can stay there unafraid, wrapped peacefully in her arms. And no matter what’s troubling you, she will dry your tears.

Full up to overflowing is my admiration for this tree who is so in love she’s bending down to kiss the children

Elven Time Travel


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.

Modern Faery Tales



“Modern fairy traditions are about blending the past with the future. In doing this, it helps us as people to evolve so that we can be on equal footing with our technology.  We must learn to apply wisdom in using our technology so that it helps us rather than destroys us.  Elves and faeries by nature are just the beings to teach us how to build a bridge between nature and technology, so that they can live side by side, nourishing each other and providing for each other’s well-being”
