Each year on Halloween night I enjoy sitting out on the front porch and talking to the children who come to “trick or treat”. I wear something special and keep a pendulum with me. (You know – a pendulum is a stone or gem at the end of a chain that moves in response to questions based on mental, not physical, energy. ) I often ask them if they would like to have their “fortune told” using the pendulum.
Well, of course, most say yes. So they hold the pendulum still with their small hands, and imagine or talk to me about their desire. And of course the pendulum reads, moving “magically” in answer their questions. I direct them to look for what they wish (rather than what they are afraid of or hope will not happen). They are always pleased and amazed to see the pendulum moving, because it is saying their dreams will come true.
Sometimes they ask how it works, but most of the children take it completely on faith; they inherently understand why it works. Still, I tell them the pendulum answers based on the wisdom their broader selves and on their own energy.
Of course, where I live, many of the children are from cultures where psychic experiences are quite common, so there is nothing very outlandish about any of this. Many tell me their grand mothers, aunts, family friends are psychic or they have visited a seer and so on.
What strikes me most is the loveliness of the children’s questions, which I thought I’d share with you today. Mostly the children line up to ask about their relationships. How lovely it is to see a young person asking me if their true love will be with them forever. One boy asked if he would marry his high school sweetheart. Two girls asked if they would date the boy of their dreams.
One charming fellow said he likes to visit each year and knew exactly what to do. He took the pendulum in his slender hand, closed his eyes, imagining his question, and smiled broadly as he saw his answer revealed.
Another little gentleman asked if his parents would have long and healthy lives. The love he felt for his parents was shining all around him.
One boy’s question struck deep to my soul. He was about 12, maybe 13, and he was with his mother. He was curious if he’d be able to complete his health program with the doctor. In his body, he harbored fear. And yet his soul was bright and shining, more than any other child I’d seen that evening and palpable love coming from his tender, gracious soul.
I ask if you are reading this, to send a message a vibrational message to this boy; a message welcoming him to himself, to the allowing of his completeness and a realization of his own beauty. Imagine him in his completeness. I am sure he will hear you and he will be well.
Blessings. Until we meet again.
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.
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

Elven 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?
Enjoy a presentation from the book ELVEN WORLD: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom at www.elvenworld.org
Our 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.
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
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 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”
Elven World continues the ancient Elven tradition while adding the fresh new Elven experience on Earth right now. Step into Elven World and you walk the path in a forest under a canopy of trees creating a sacred space just for you––profoundly embracing you with color and sound. Inspiration abounds and captures you with messages about our world from the Elven, guiding us to heights of appreciation and understanding we’ve never before known.
The first in a series of stories in the modern Elven tradition, Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom teaches us through the adventures of the Elven and Fae who live in our world today. Their magic lies in a dimension just beyond the everyday. Step into the magical world by nurturing the Elven spirit that lives within your heart.
