Elven World: Restoration of the Tuatha de Danann Kingdom“ by T.E. Locke

Elven Earth: Legend of the Tuatha dé Danann

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.

The story of how the Tuatha dé Dannan arrived to Ireland and their many exploits have been pieced together from archeological accounts and Irish legends and you can read and learn this history.

Origins of Tuatha dé Dannan

The Elven have sparked interest of visionaries, writers, researchers and archeologists for centuries. It has been said they traveled from Greece or that they came from the lost continent of Lemur and Irish legend tells they mysteriously appeared in a cloud of mist.

We may never know for certain. But the pieces of the mysterious puzzle are, each one, a fascinating treasure. The discoveries of Tara Hill are a wonderful place to begin.

Tara Hill

Tara Hill in Ireland was the home of the Elven Kingdom on Earth and is the legendary door to the Otherworld of Tír na nÓg that lies in another dimension. Artifacts more than 5,000 years old have been found there, including castle doorways and bronze implements.

The complexity of the bronze items found, points to a very advanced civilization. Some archeologists believe that this civilization had its origin in Atlantis, a continent that may have existed between what is today Africa and America, that long ago sank into the sea.

Atlantis and the Bronze Kingdoms

The accounts of Atlantis by the great Greek philosopher Plato have led many scholars and archeologists to pursue the mystery of the lost continent of Atlantis. A highly advanced civilization that began more than ten thousand years ago, Atlantis was deluged in what appears to have been a series of floods that ultimately, drown it completely in the Atlantic ocean.

No one has confirmed any findings of the continent’s remains though many have searched.

Archeologists have found mines in North America thousands of years old that used very advanced methods of mining copper. It has been surmised that the Atlanteans created these mines. They may have established the wealth and power of their civilization by producing bronze (made from tin and copper.) As exceptional sailors, they would have been able to travel the world introducing bronze as a tool for weaponry and machines.

As with the Tuatha dé Dannan, very little is known of these ancient people. It has been surmised that a series of three major floods threatened to wipe out the Atlantean civilization. Each flood saw the exodus of scholars and engineers of extraordinary capabilities.

It is thought that some of these people sailed to Egypt. And some sailed all the way to Ireland to start a new life on the Emerald Isle.

Until the remaining texts are translated, until more artifacts are discovered, we may never have actual evidence. Even then, we are only piecing together a story based on the facts we will have learned.

Could it be that for tens of thousands of years, philosophers and scientists of Atlantis developed their mental skills far beyond the level of advancement we know today? Could it be that these physicists and philosophers knew and could apply the seven cosmic laws, that otherwise survive in only a few books and in the minds of just a handful of philosophers and learned people? Could it be that this wisdom when accurately applied could perform deeds we consider today “magic”?

Tuatha dé Danann

This is where Irish legend begins. Stories that were once passed down verbally from family to family have since been written down.

The legend tells us that as the floodwaters subsided, the Tuatha dé Danann ships stood upon the Hill of Tara in Ireland, whereupon they built their magnificent city of wood, ivory and bronze.

The story opens to us a picture of what might have been their way of life on the island; gardens with flowers of every color, birds who kept them company, bees that made delectable honey and cows who produced the sweetest milk. It has been said that the Tuatha groomed immense horses and rode across the countryside with their long hair flowing behind them. Tall and handsome, these magnificent people wore gold around their necks and crowns of flowers upon their heads.

It is up to you to decide what you believe.

Research indicates the Tuatha dé Dannan regained and practiced their skills in the seven cosmic laws—at least for a while. Some say the most advanced practitioners had developed the ability to appear and disappear at will and to transport through time and space. The most highly skilled could embody animal forms. During the evenings and into the night, they would leave their bodies in astral flight. Needless to say, they were also precisely skilled in the fine arts such as poetry and music, carpentry and metalworking.

Remember that legends are accounts without evidence, however true they may be. Legends tell us that other, more warlike races sought to conquer the Tuatha dé Danann and keep the island for themselves. First, were the Fir Blog, a shorter, stocky race. The Tuatha eventually made peace with them by giving them a wide area of land they could call their own.

The Fomorian giants followed. Fomorian are known as a supernatural race of beings with reddish skin and long thin hair with tempers so volatile it is as if they breathe fire.

Though the Tuatha dé Danann was reluctant, the Fomorian insisted upon war for many years, causing continual unrest in the kingdom.

About 4,000 years ago, during a time of relative peace between the Fomorian and the Tuatha dé Dannan, members of the human race invaded the island. Many say they came from Spain and called themselves Milesian.

Though we’ve never known why, the Tuatha dé Danann never went to battle with the Milesian. Instead, all in one day, they left Tara Hill in Ireland. It is said that they retired to a magical kingdom in a new dimension: a world created under the mounds of Tara and deep under the sea. The stories tell us the name for this world: Tír na nÓg, or the “Land of Youth” since within this world, it is said, the Tuatha lived lifetimes lasting eons.

We may never know the truth of this Tuatha dé Danann. Tara Hill is considered one of the most endangered ancestral or cultural sites in the world at the time of this writing, since new construction is moving onto this land.

Folklore is full of stories of magical people would travel from Tír na nÓg to the world of the humans. Their tricks, adventures and love stories were told for hundreds of years as myths of gods and goddesses. Over time, the stories became lore of great warriors with supernatural powers. As millennia passed, legends of beings with supernatural abilities began to fade altogether. The concept of true magic in the human culture was lost.

Today, we hear of the Faery and the Elven people as tiny beings who hide in the forests and can only be seen by those who are sensitive enough to observe their multi-dimensional state. Thousands of accounts exist of people seeing the Elven and Fae in their yards, farms and homes as well as in their mind’s eye. Many, to this day, believe the Elven heal them, grow their plants and enhance their lives. Perhaps the Elven Spirit––the Spirit of Nature––is the purest essence of our selves.

It is here that our story begins: The Restoration of the Tuatha dé Danann Kingdom.

It’s up to you to learn more about these tales and discover their truth for yourself, if you will.

Most importantly it is up to you to live the legend from this point forward.

  1. Hello i would love to learn more with people like me.. Be Well Amber

  2. Elves are often featured in children’s fairytales. They have roots deep in the folklore of countries such as Germany, Holland, Sweden, England, and Norway. Their legend goes back as far as mankind can remember; perhaps even as far back as the beginning of time itself. In some countries they were worshiped in nature through trees, mountains, and waterfalls.
    Most cultures agreed that these creatures were mysterious. Some went so far as to view them as supernatural beings or gods. While some believed only in the goodness of elves, others believed there were two different kinds of elves, both good and bad (light or dark).
    Elves were often portrayed as benevolent and helpful creatures, albeit a bit mischievous from time to time. However, a few cultures viewed them as evil incarnate and took precautions to protect themselves from them.
    Mythology as a whole, verifies that it could be difficult to determine the sex of elves. Both males and females possessed delicate features, long flowing hair, sparkling dark eyes, pointed ears and a great deal of grace. Such a description easily explains why elves were often portrayed as strictly feminine in certain types of folklore. Many believe that an elf’s face beams an inner light that makes them appear angelic.
    Light elves were considered peace-loving creatures who were tasked with the preservation of nature. However, they were believed to love all things beautiful, often assisting mankind by delivering inspiration for musical scores and stunning works of art.
    Good elves were considered to be exceedingly beautiful, with faces that „beam“ a natural inner light, making them appear to be almost angelic. They almost always wore white or extremely pale colors with metallic threads running through it.
    Dark elves, on the other hand, were sometimes depicted as being pitch black with florescent eyes. They sported nothing but black, dark gray, or silver clothing. Even though their features very much resembled those of light elves, their countenance could often take on a demonic quality, which might explain why they are often associated with black magic.
    Dark elves are exceedingly prideful and full of spite. Some claim these creatures hated mankind and loved to plague humans with their many pranks. They were believed to possess strong spirits and equally strong, agile bodies.
    Light elves were believed to live in lush forests near wooded lakes. Dark elves, on the other hand, are banished to caves and underground ravines.
    In many cultures elves are depicted as fully-grown humans much like those that were featured in „Lord of the Rings.“ But in some instances they have been reduced to smaller sized humans with slightly distorted features. Some indicate that elves can be so small that they can work in our world without being seen.
    Elves have heightened senses that allow them to hear and see better than most humans. Some cultures also believed that elves possessed a kind of extra sensory perception that allowed them to „tune in“ to things happening around them so that they could rush to the aid of those in trouble.
    Many believe that elves are immortal while others believe they simply live to a ripe old age; as much as 1000 years. Still others believe that an elf’s life span depends upon the creature’s life journey. They think that elves live as long as is necessary for them to complete their tasks in life. Once everything is completed, the elf dies. In any case, death is not something that elves feared. They accepted death as a return to nature.
    While many believed that elves co-existed with humans in the mortal realm, others claimed that they had the capability to move between the level of humankind and the netherworld. Not bound by the laws of the nature, it was thought that elves could move through solid surfaces like walls, windows, and doors to gain entry wherever they chose.
    According to German mythology, elves were once thought to be gods of nature and fertility. But German elves were quite mischievous and would cause nightmares in human dreams just for a lark. Sometimes their pranks were far less benign; causing crops to die, cattle to be diseased, and humans to take ill.
    Some folklore said that humans who saw an elf were destined to die shortly. The form and countenance of the sited elf would give the intended victim an insight to the method of their death. A peaceful countenance was equated to a peaceful death. A grimaced countenance indicated a violent death.
    According to Norse mythology, elves often entered the mortal realm to seek out love and companionship among humans. This sometimes resulted in crossbreeding. If the human of the duo discovered their elf partner’s deception, it often did not fair well for their offspring. Sometimes those children would be abandoned, sold, or given away because they were considered unclean.
    In Danish folklore elves were considered a race of beings unto themselves. Oftentimes they were depicted only as female in gender. They were believed to live in the same realm as fairies, with rolling hills, lush forests, sparkling springs, and fields full of flowers. However, they too often escaped into the human world to create havoc.
    In Swedish folklore elves were depicted as beautiful women who acted as servants to their elven king. They are generally depicted as being fair-haired and a skin so pale that it almost matches their customary white garments.
    Scandinavians believed in the theory of light and dark elves. Some feared the dark elves and wore pentagram amulets around their neck to protect themselves. They also carved or painted the symbol onto their homes; inside and out. They believed the symbol would not allow elves to pass by the symbol.
    Some elves were gifted with an ability to dance, something they loved to do in the early morning mist. It was believed that humans who watched their dance would be cursed. While the human believed they were merely watching for just a few minutes, they often discovered that years had passed them by in the mortal realm.
    Unlike other cultures who have, one by one, abandoned the idea of elves, a lot of Scandinavians still believe in the existence of elves; in fact a startling 40 percent aren’t willing to abandon their cherished fantasy friends.
    English folktales often depicted elves as the smaller version like those to whom we have become most accustomed. They weren’t considered evil but did like to pull pranks; hiding possessions of humans, moving objects, or making messes.
    Some English elves were also believed to be invisible. Much like fairies, they could hide themselves in plain sight. In fact, in some English literature, elves and fairies became synonymous.
    Of course elves have a prominent position in the folklore of America; particularly that tied to the celebration of Christmas. Those who continue to believe in the essence of Santa, also hold on to their beliefs in the elves that serve him.
    Like English folklore, American mythology depicts elves as diminutive in size with a happy-go-lucky attitude. They are considered to be great toy makers, which explains their attachment to Santa.
    Like fairies, leprechauns, and gnomes (a close relation to elves), there seems little need to prove their existence. Like many supposed fantasies, the strength of elves lies in their ability to spark the imagination. That they do successfully. What more can we ask?
