The foreword by Daniel Meurois
“For months, I had the privilege of witnessing the writing of this book. I say privilege because this book is not insignificant as everyone will soon notice. It is even radically different from the majority of those books written on the subject.
Indeed, while the literature devoted to the Elven World and, more broadly, to the Invisible Forces of Nature is abundant, few works are in the form of testimony, even fewer in the form of precise testimony.
With The Portal of the Elves, we are far away from the fairy tales and legends that inhabit the world of children and the imagination of our society.
Blessed with sensory faculties, Marie Johanne Croteau brings here a deep memory long buried within her – a memory she wasn’t allowed to liberate fully, a memory that takes us by the heart to the “continent of the Subtle Forces” of our planet.
Through the pages of this unconventional text, seduced by the sensitivity that emanates from it, I personally discovered much more than a simple tale of life in the World of the Elves.
In fact, the reader is invited to enter this universe that is, amazingly, frames our own.
This work offers us a trove of information and captivating details from a very different perspective.
We approach another definition of Time, Light, and Sacredness of Life, all intermixed with the hymn of courage, freedom, and the “need for difference” that continually invites us to grow.
I will mention in passing the author’s talent to transcribe sensations, perceptions, and especially the nonhuman concepts in language that is understandable to all. This has not been the least of her challenges.
Finally, I must say that in discovering The Portal of the Elves, beyond the richness of its information, I was deeply touched by its freshness, its sincerity, its sensitivity at the soul level, and the great tenderness that emerges.
I wish you well as you dive into the wonder of this work, but also an awareness of the urgent necessity to do everything you can to protect the precious beauty of our planet and its tenants.”
