"Opening this book opens a door in the imagination. Whether you take it as fact or fiction, this book, like Mutant Message Downunder, carries a message of healing and planetary priorities." Julia Cameron, An Artist's Way and Vein of Gold
"Tanis is a spiritual evocateur and deep seer who opens us up to other voices ... other realms...." Jean Houston, Search for the Beloved and A Mythic Life
"This delightful book is not only great fun to read, but makes most interesting and intelligent suggestions about the reality and work of this particular branch of the nature world. It can help us open our minds to fascinating dimensions that do exist on the planet." Dorothy MacLean, co-founder of Findhorn and author, To Hear the Angels Sing
"A wonderful book! I couldn't put it down. Trust Tanis to bring the elemental world to us with such care and insight. The leprechaun's message is both startling and hopeful in this timely story that is beautifully told." Raffi, children's entertainer

Humans have free will, which is necessary for all creators, and you're the only race on this planet, save the people of the water, that has this."
As he spoke of the people of the water, I saw an image of dolphins and, as he continued, I began to see all sorts of images relating to his words. I also began to feel things that reinforced both his words and the images. I realized that this three-dimensional communication of hearing, seeing, and feeling was giving me a much fuller and more rapid understanding than was normal for humans. As I listened, I also began to realize that in my everyday existence I received information from my environment on many dimensions and that how the leprechaun communicated was in some ways more familiar to me than the way I communicated with my fellow-humans.
