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. My forest trees beckon me with wisdom. This song honors all forests and trees on our great planet.- T.E. Pelton, Elven World Mythologies Elvensong Blessing for the Trees My forest trees embrace me with peace. Grand, grace and power; Of a kind mortals have never known. You stand among us; Our silent teachers, Our patient guides, Our protectors. You can wait, Chanting your wind song, Dancing with the sun’s rays. You, your branches make my cathedral; My sublime temple, My sacred place. Your leaves above and roots below, Meet the arrangement Of my blood flow Your gentle swaying Cools the rhythms my heart. Your sweet smell fills my throat, Nestling in comfort, holiness And the ability to soar above Those who crawl and crouch upon your floor, Unable to comprehend what it means to kiss the sky. Every mote of me, Is breathing in Your life. Every breath of you Nourishes the whole of me. Oh, how I relish it, Oh, how I rejoice in you! You open me. In your presence I am complete. Oh, blessed be!

Travel with the Elven on a breathtaking adventure to restore the Elven Kingdom on Earth in our modern age. "Elven World is a tale of the bard, full of adventure, wisdom and beauty, that gives beyond a story - it expresses the essence of the Elven ways and tells the story of how we awaken, returning to the world today and our purpose." - EL, California “ Really a unique, adventurous book including many of the Irish Faerie gods/goddesses and a really relevant interesting story.....starts in the Hill of Tara with Tuatha de Danann (high court of the Irish Faeries) and moves to the Redwoods of Northern California and Portland Oregon. There's romance, intrigue, and some great messages about environmentalism and faith/hope. Highly recommended- looking forward to the sequel!” - SA, Florida “I am a busy professional who seldom gets the pleasure of a good read. So when I get to read for pleasure, it has to be special. "Elven World" was special. It took me to a magical world with love, danger, adventure and intrigue. It almost felt real. Maybe it was!” KI, AZ “Delightful. I found that I know the names and attributes of the Tuatha and Fomorian much better than I did previously.” - JL, Colorado “A romantic adventure,across time and space, the tale follows genuine mythological characters as they battle their long-time enemies, the legendary, hideous Fomorians, and then learn that the real enemy is not who or what they thought! I won't give away the surprise, but the true enemies turn out to be highly relevant to today's concern with living a "green" lifestyle in harmony with the Earth. It's a great read.” - LD, California "In Elven World, one enters a fast-paced story in which a bunch of ancient Celtic gods are transported to modern-day Portland, Oregon, in a quest to save the world. A romantic adventure, the tale follows genuine mythological characters as they battle their long-time enemies, the legendary, hideous Formorians, and then learn that the real enemy is not who or what they thought! I won't give away the surprise, but the true enemies turn out to be highly relevant to today's concern with living a "green" lifestyle in harmony with the Earth. It's a great read. The intended audience is young adults, and it is definitely family-friendly. I am recommending it to a reading group as well as to my friends because I am sure they will love it." - TP, California "Beautiful, positive reminder how we are all connected! I read this book and realized a bit after why it appealed to me so much. Not only being a wonderful book with fantastic imagery, prolific characters and hope for our environment, it speaks to the inner child. You can find your self reminiscing about hopes, dreams, and possibilities. It reminds you in so many ways to focus on what matters, to be yourself, to shine, and above all to pay it forward. The story is simple and yet profound, a worthy read. It is a keeper! In a world that is starting to turn back to the spiritual, a world where books like "The Secret" and "The Four Agreements" are on the bestseller list it is apparent... we as a people are `looking' for answers, light, hope, reason, our authentic selves.. and this book helped me remember who I am, I am a creature of light, of hope, of love, and part of this universe, and this world which we are sorely neglecting. If you are a crystal, indigo, HSP (highly sensitive person), pantheistic in nature at all, if you feel kin to the trees, the sky, animals, each other, if you can feel energy then this book will touch your spirit and be a reminder that you are not alone on the road less traveled. It inspired me so much to continue sharing what I learn on my journey to my perfected temple. It has let me know I am not alone in my endeavors to shine, and to know that we are all connected to each other, humans, animals, spiritual, all of us.. energy... What Haiti is going through right now, we too feel... and experience, one way or another! Five stars for this book that reminded me of who I am." SS, Boston Enjoy Elven World today!

“Its hard to maintain my fresh, enthusiastic outlook when other people’s viewpoints are so negative and mean towards me” “Its hard when other people yell at you and tell you that you’re crazy and live in a fantasy world.” As the words fall from my lips I look back. Wait a minute. Who’s judging who? Because it is painful, I am judging. Because it is not the way I enjoy experiencing life, I am judging. Because, essentially, “they” don’t agree with “me” and my way of life; Because they don’t talk to me or treat me the way I like to be treated. And I’ve found myself saying “well ‘those people’ - the ones who steal, lie, betray my trust or have affairs, those are the ones who are going to have to live with what they have done to me or others. Maybe they do and maybe they don’t. But who am I to say what is or should be the result of their thoughts or deeds? As soon as you are assigning a label such as “wrong” or right” to someone, something or even some statement it can turn on you by way of making you unhappy, bringing you sorrow. Often spoken of is Compassion and Unconditional Love of the Masters. We do not often use these words because they can be confusing: You are a composite of your many lifetimes of experience and because you come into manifestation in this very moment for your own purpose of discovery - you will feel. And so this other person is also manifesting energy forms in his own way, for his own experience, for his own feelings, for his own discovery. They are not perfect because perfect does not exist. And who would want it to? Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom. Are you Elven? Do you have magical blood running through your veins? Regain your abilities. Travel with the Elven on a breathtaking adventure to restore the Elven kingdom on Earth. "A magical, tale of the Bard set in modern Ireland, Oregon and other dimensions...."
It is summer and time to celebrate Aine (prounced “Aan- ya”) the Tuatha de Danann Goddess of Love. In Elven World, The Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom, Aine is the daughter of Lugh and his mortal lover. Her journey and blessing open the doors to freedom for the Tuatha de Danann on Earth in the present time. Aine is also the heroine of the upcoming sequel, Elven World: Children of the New Earth. Irish Mythology and Legend In mythological legend Aine was the Goddess who created abundance for all that grows upon the Earth; she feeds not only our body, but our soul with loveliness. She is goddess of prosperity, protector of women, animals and the environment, the essence of growth and source of the flower’s scent and grace. It is said she would appear sometimes running magically as a red mare through the meadows at sunset. And she has appeared to many as "the lady of the lake." Many believe Aine assumed forms in Nature and took a number of mortal lovers, creating a magical race on Earth. Needless to say, Aine is a Goddess whose intense beauty, femininity and sexuality was a threat to those who wished to wipe out the Celtic way of life. In the time of cultural suppression Aine was transformed into “The Faery Queen” or “Queen of the Faeries.” We know her most famously as Titiana in Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. She is celebrated on the Summer Solstice when torch lit processions may be held in her honor. She is praised in midsummer festivals in song and dance. Our Blessing and Calling To the Goddess Aine Touch the crown of my children’s head So they will grow strong Let your magic dust cover my lips To attract my lover’s kiss Stay the hand of he who would fell a tree Let him discover instead, a way He can work within Your Faire garden Steady the hand of one who plants seed In his home, 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 Join you in every budding flower Awakening to the light Touch me with the wisdom Of each morning’s dew Lift my face to the sun Falling softly on my sweet skin Opening for more Blessings from Elven World
