Elven World: Return of The Tuatha de Danann

Elven Mythology & Spirituality, Celtic culture, multidimensional Earth

Is there a notable difference between Elves and Fae? I have a few faery books and they lump elves, Fae, mermaids, undines, gnomes, trolls and dwarves under the same category. I think I have had past lives as Tuatha de Danann. According to mythology, after the Fomorians defeated the Tuatha, they went underground and became the Sidhe. Last I checked the Sidhe are faeries.What thoughts do you have about this? Feel free to share. :)

I really appreciate your input. Though I'm more inclined to think of the Tuatha as Elves...But do you think they are more like the Fey? I have come across some sources that mentions the Tuatha as a Faery race. Other don't specify a race or they say they were Elves. Its hard to know what you are with so much conflicting information. :) But discussions help. I know I didn't originate on Earth. I can't say where I come from or what race, because I don't have a clue, but I know I'm not originally from here...soul wise, anyway. :)

I too am eager to meet Otherkin who are Fey, Elven, Sidhe or Tuatha.

It is possible all these peoples are members of the same "root race"... certainly there are times when I read accounts of alfar, sidhe, faery people etc. and think "these are all just culturally different names for substantially the same thing." But on the other hand, think how different various breeds of dogs are, even though they are all the same species; in a sense they are the same, but in other very important senses they are not.

Possible... I guess that it depends. All breeds on earth came from the same root race too, yet they are very differend and in certain ways incompatible.

I always thought Fae was kind of an umbrella term for different types of nature spirits.

So the elves and Tuatha would be Fae, but not all Fae are necessarily elves or Tuatha. I kind of imagine that the Sidhe are a higher court of Fae and they may or may not be elves or Tuatha.

From the Encyclopedia of Spirits:

"The word fairy has become a catch-all for all kinds of tenuously related spirits. In general, what they share in common are associations with wild nature and an interest in human life cycles, especially birth. Fairy is also the standard word to translate amorphous, volatile, sexy nature spirits from around the world..."

"For many people, Fairy means the Sidhe of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands. The word is commonly used in Ireland as the English translation for Sidhe."

"Elves are mysterious Northern spirits, sometimes equated with Fairies."

"The Tuatha De Danaan evolved into Sidhe. They are the prototypical magical Fairies."

All from the same book.

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
