Elven World: Return of The Tuatha de Danann

Elven Mythology, Celtic Pantheon & Spirituality, multidimensional Earth

by Ilon Bluesky
From Elven Glen: Vol. 1, Issue 1, page 3

Elves are of a special nature. They are sometimes gay and playful, sometimes musing and contemplative. Their magical Way is as difficult to describe as the way the wind whips your hair about on an autumn afternoon, or the way the forest smells on a spring morning. Utterly natural and largely spontaneous, the elven Way includes all others in its eclecticism while it excludes them in its lack of concrete structure.

For this reason, it may be difficult to spot an elf right away. They may be engaged in activities which seem foreign to any elven stereotype. Since their movements coordinate with the underlying Song of Nature, however, given time even an engaged elf can be distinguished quite easily. Yet spotting an elf will not really allow a glimpse of their mystical Way, for such is their magick that it blends into their surroundings much as a cloud dissipates in the sky.

In fact, it is more accurate to say that elven magick is absorbed by, or becomes, their environment. Magick for elves is less a labor and more a part of their very being. Those skilled in magick dance in attunement to the essence of All in the very act of living their lives, whatever its form may be. Natural power flows out from them and heals everything it touches. To some in their sphere of influence this may seem uncomfortable or painful, while to others it is a joyous experience.

This doesn't mean that the elven Way is easy or that those who walk it face less of a challenge than those on more structured paths toward the Source.

Elves often begin their journey from little spiritual foundation. Their parents provide them with none, or that which their parents do provide is released in emotional abhorrence or dashed to pieces by critical intellect. Cut loose, they face a most challenging dilemma -- whether to begin an alternate path put forward by the Elders or to forge a new path through the wilderness of spirit. Most fall somewhere between these extremes, mixing together that which seems familiar and attempting to weave a fabric allowing them independence and freedom to express their sometimes unusual tastes.

Yet even these are only the initial steps along the elven Way. They may also develop relationships with the powers Faerie (by whatever name), and friends among the various nature spirits, travel the outer reaches of the elemental planes, locate and worship the Star Goddess or other worthy deities, seek out the Fountain of Immortality, or trespass the Summerlands, among many other courageous and potentially dangerous adventures.

None of these endeavors in and of themselves constitutes an exercise of elven magick. Each may provide a puzzle-piece, a key to unlock the door that leads toward the mystery known to some as the Secret of Merlin, the Art of the Elven Sages, and the lifeblood of Faerie children everywhere.

While these words may sound rather precise, they only hint at the nature of ways elven, especially regarding arts of true magick. Along the elven Way are signposts pointing toward an indescribable path of magick which participates greatly in the patterned, cosmic ebb and flow of Universal Tides. Those who navigate these waters do so without the aid of boat or sail. The waters have been called 'the sub-conscious realm', yet this minimizes the beauty and complexity of such an expanse.

Elves trained in the ways of Seeing and Exploring move within this dark demesne as an otter swims among the seaweed forests off the California coast. They learn the highways and byways, gradually losing themselves in the ecstasy of discovery, revealing the purest and deepest magick of their being.

The elven Way is not a particular form, it is a style. It is not exactly a well-worn path, but is more accurately an art of path-walking. It is not a mindset, it is an attitude, a commitment to eternal youth, the honoring of the Old Ones, and a vow to serve the Mystery of Life.

Thank you Morell 

For as long as I've known about this piece, I've never been able to find out if there ever really was any magazine or newsletter called Elven Glen, or if that was made up to provide a "frame" for the piece.

Now this is such conflicting information Morell..calling it Raelian is disgraceful actually..as that's a weird & wacko New Age UFO cult religion & nothing at all to do with the Elven worlds...Id be inclined to re-name this so there is no confusion..

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raëlian_beliefs_and_practices

Huh? Rialian is a person, one of the elves who's been knocking around the community at least since the mid-late 1990s. This is something from his website rialian.com, (although he didn't personally write it). No connection to "Raelian" stuff.

Yes Arethinn I'm not doubting the info here on the article.. but that this is how things get confused by people surrounding these namesakes..people connect dots and then they jump to conclusions too..lets say people dont read properly..lol they skim read.. so namesakes get tangled.. and could be seen as disgraceful when they see this other cult connected..Im glad its not connected thats for sure.

Seriously Vlada? Mixing elven name wirth Raelians is disgrateful. (just like you said, so thanks for that) People here, who are into elves for some time usually know Rialian and his webpage. (Which was recently shut down, that is why I bother with reposting his work here to preserve it for other elvenfolks)

He had nothing to do with this alien cult.  Heck, I also know names Rael and Raelag, but none of them is connected with this cult necessarily. (okay, maybe Rael does)

Oh that's sad the guys website got shut down,yes the info from it should be saved,was there a lot that got archived?...But yeah just I thought mentioning it,cos also we both know how crazy people can be online and how easily they can get confused just from a similarity in a name,..maybe saying something in comments could be enough to show people there is no connection to this crazy UFO cult,but then people often dont read comments either do they..IDK ..But then in the end you know best..

Do you Remember this one Morell? and Eyovah? R.I.P

You think that I can get that crazy? Because I did post this and you tiny bit offended me with Rialian cult connection.

Well you clearly made some points in this way for yourself. XD

Re: Eyovah - http://web.archive.org/web/20061021110939/http://www.rialian.com/dr... - left to right, that's my now-husband Celebron (not a misspelling; not "Celeborn"), me, and Eyovah at Walking the Thresholds in 1999. (We had only just met in person for the first time, back then. I look like a dork but hey, I was 20. And the humidity in the Pennsylvania summer never did my hair's appearance any favors. My husband, on the other hand, was extremely pretty.) Some other pics from that year, including Eyovah's True Form symbol, can be seen here.

Hmmm ...now was this comment necessary...as In which case you misunderstood me fully and my intentions for mentioning it to begin with to be so easy offended, when it had nothing to do with you personally at all, you took it on yourself to see it that way to be offended why IDK?..

My intentions which were fully for good intent & not negative intent..,it was to simply noticing to how people can get confused with just a name..

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.

So I just want to let you all in on something interesting I discovered.Homestuck is probably about Celtic culture, and no one talks about it.The aliens are called Trolls.Mischievious pranksters.Psychic abilities. [debatable magic]They get fairy wings complete with *special stardust* when they god tier, and at least some of them have elf ears.Some are even born with fairy wings as a genetic mutation.Their seadwellers obviously allude to merpeople.Their royalty live under the waves.
