Valar are pantheon of Tolkiens legendarium, powerfull and mighty as they are, they are creators of Arda, the Earth, in this modern myth and rule the lands of Valinor, also called Aman, Undying lands.
I work with them, although not much, still I do, as it seems that they have more to say that they did with Tolkien. I created a web about them... just it isn't much growing right now. (and I hope that there are no problems)
Any experience with them?
I have had experiences with the Elven, but do not know what 'tribe'/'family' they are from. The only way I know them is my connections with them (only women/females - because I knew them here in/on 3D Earth during my 19th c. or early 20th c. lifetime)...so I know them only through the 'dimensional' connections and 'karmic' connections. Beyond that, I know nothing of them.
I have experience with elven, from time to time, sometimes only assurance that they take me as one of them and they care.
And sometimes I see the Valar as well, usually Manwe or Melkor as I work with those two the most. I considered it funny, when I was at work and for a half a sec I saw Manwe standing there leaning at the cuppboard, wearing jeans, dark blue or black shirt and white jacket and with silver tiara on head, having his white long hair, looking at me with interest. Heh, I still smile when thinking of it, it feld kinda unusual but not in bad way...
I worked with Nienna, for many years. I have worked primarily with Varda Elentari and Manwe since I met my (also Elven) soulmate/partner/fiance.
