SilverAnd ZardoaHawaiiGardens

In the last two years during the pandemic, we Silver Elves have many elfae kindred and friends who have asked us for elven spells and incantations to help them through some difficult times as well as to put their feet forward on new projects and activities in a successful way for their lives. While we have hundreds of spells and incantations for different purposes in many of our books (see An Elfin Book of Trees for The Elven Druid; Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic; Eye of Newt: An Elfin Witch’s Spell Code; The Faerie Song Oracle; and Elfin Witches’ Knotwork), sometimes people just need one that is specifically created for them. We Silver Elves are happy to gift you with an elven spell created especially for you and your expressed needs, a gift from us to you, and we will also put our elven blessings upon it. The real work will of course come from you, as you use this spell in your own magic and say it each day with intention for it to come to pass. This isn’t a spell that we use for you but that we write for you (with our elven blessings) to use in your own magic.

If you would like to be gifted an elven spell from us (you do not have to be elven or otherkin), please request it by answering the following questions in an email to us Silver Elves (our email is silverelves@live.com) and please write “Elven Spell Request” in the subject line of the email. We will answer you with your spell within two weeks (generally in just a few days) and you will not be put on any email list (we don’t actually have such a list anyway). It is completely private and we do not keep your name on file in any way (although we do keep the spell itself since we created it).

So, if you would like to be gifted an original elven spell to help you with your life, whatever it may be dear Kindred and Friends, please email us at silverelves@live.com with the answers to the following questions:

“Song of Awakening” from The Magical Elven Love Letters by The Silver Elves

August 8, 2022

“Song of Awakening” from 
The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2 
by The Silver Elves

     So continuing with our series on The Magical Elven Love Letters. . . .

   The letters in Volume 2 were some of The Silver Elves’ most popular letters of the three volumes and give the reader an experiential understanding of what it is to be an elf and enter the realm of Faerie and Magick.  Today we Silver Elves are sharing a letter titled “Song of Awakening” from The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2, which was initially sent out to our elfae kindred by snail mail prior to the onset of the internet in the 1990s. Enjoy!

“Letter 56 … Song of Awakening” 

“Compassion… Beloved Elfin,” 

“… is one the most difficult virtues for many elfin to learn and may very well be the reason a good many of us incarnated in fragile physicality. The most ancient of our kind came from a realm where we were immortal and our bodies etheric were nearly indestructible. When we first came in contact with man, it was somewhat hard for us to appreciate not only how fragile he was, particularly because he seemed such a big solid growing thing and also how very terrified he really was of the possibility of death and dying, i.e. pain. We hate to admit it but we were and sometimes still are rather callous to mankind’s plight… even, in our ignorant youth, at times laughing at the suffering and tragedy of man. It is sometimes only the stinging realization that we now are also subject to the possibility of such terrors that snaps us back to “reality”.”

“It is no wonder that human writers have often described our folk as being cold and soulless. But soulless we are not. We have feelings deep and true, we have visions, pure and farsighted, and we have memories of a life long past when we lived in the seemingly eternal grace of the DIVINE. We were drawn to man in time, they fascinated us. They were so strong and yet so weak, they were terrified of shadows yet inordinately brave and courageous in the face of incalculable odds. Life for them was a mixture of misery and ecstasy, drudgery and high fantastic adventure. We, perhaps, had become a little jaded by that time and seeing how man grasped life so… made us want it anew. Yet, it was compassion that ultimately brought us down into the physical plane. We thought that by mixing with men we could uplift them, which we did, but we did not calculate how very much we would enjoy this world, become, as it were, addicted to its pleasures and yes, for some, its pains.” 

“The great elven sage and seer Buddha proclaimed that in order to escape this realm we need only relinquish desire. And, yes, we have heard from many kin who wish to be free of this world… yet that very desire to be rid of it binds them to it. Oh, cruel world this that like a spider’s web wraps you tighter the more you struggle to be free. There are others of us, however, who wish not so much to be free of this world but to master it. Nurturing our magic until it grows here with the abandon it does Elsewhere. The irony is that in order to do that, we must ultimately also free ours’elves from the desire to have it so. We must work at it, of course, but then we must sit back and wait and allow Faerie to weave its wonders unobstructed. In this world effort is almost everything but the nature of Faerie is in many ways antithetical to this… for Faerie is ruled not by work but by play. Faerie is a realm powered not by hard cold logic but by fantastic imagination. To merge these two realms involves embracing the ETERNAL TAO, the GREAT PARADOX of manifestation. We must do without trying, we must be without doing. We must trust without knowing yet with an inner certainty that all will be fulfilled.”

“Faerie is and we become. As we struggle to create Faerie; it, like mist, remains forever beyond our grasp. But as we live Faerie, live our lives as elves and pixies, brownies and gnomes… Faerie manifests within us and in time around us affecting the SPACE/TIME continuum, shifting us from one parallel realm to another until we find one day the trees shimmering like stars… a light sparkling in the eyes of everyone we meet and the ecstatic joy of every breath. To man this seems a dream, a fantasy that will never or can never happen or be, or as he perceives time, will be so long from now as to be irrelevant to his life. But for the elfin, time moves differently, past, present and future all merges into one, the eternal possibility of every moment. We live our dreams and by doing so create that world man thinks does not even exist.”

“Yet, the more we become in tune with our true s’elves, the more we are manifesting living Elfin, the greater the power we have and the greater the effect upon everyone we come in contact with. Man and other races cannot help but be effected by our presence, our being, our magic, just as we, for our part cannot live in the world of Man and not be effected and take into account the power of his manifest being and outlook. There are those who would like to totally separate thems’elves from man and we can certainly understand their point of view but it is an occult truth that we cannot affect anyone unless we ourselves are ready and open to being influenced. Shall we become like the Amish, suspended in time? We think not. WE are here not simply to create our own world but to help transform this one, to ease mankind to a more gentle and ‘dancey’ approach to life and to awaken him to his own destiny, which is, like ours, Here among the Stars!” 

“As difficult as it is, we must open ours’elves to this world, not simply our minds for indeed having an open mind is a very elven trait, but also our hearts… we must feel the world and all its suffering in order to heal it. However, having an open heart does not mean simply allowing ours’elves to be overwhelmed by the madness of the world any more than having an open mind means that you have to agree with everything you hear or read. Having an open heart implies the power of discrimination and even more so the power to transform raw feeling into transcendental peace and bliss. Oh, we know that not all elfin are ready for this step. It demands true mastery over ones’elf and one’s feelings. But it is the direction we are headed toward. A place and a power where we do not simply react to the world in a tit for tat manner but infuse it with living transformative energy. But this we can only do if we, ours’elves are willing to transform.” 

“Oh, tis true we could wait for man to change on his own, How many millennia do you have? Or we could wait for our kin to come from outer space, but then, we are already here. No, while patience is something we are always striving to develop. We are long past waiting. We have come to awaken Elfin and with every breath we Sing the Song of Awakening.”

Kyela,
The Silver Elves 

“FACTS ABOUT ELFIN: THE MANY TALES THAT SAY THAT WE ELVES KIDNAP MORTALS AND KEEP THEM IMPRISONED IN FAERIE AGAINST THEIR WILL ARE UTTERLY FALSE. ONE CAN NOT STAY IN FAERIE UNLESS THEIR WHOLE HEART DESIRES IT.”

(End of excerpt from The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2 )

We Silver Elves have been living and sharing the Elven Way since 1975. In 1979, we began writing and circulating The Magical Elven Love Letters to our elven community through regular snail mail (no computers at the time). At the time of these letters, modern day elves were just beginning to awaken to their elven soulful nature and we wanted to share our letters at that time to support and encourage those that were beginning to awaken to be true to their individual destiny and to embrace their starry heritage. In time as the decades went on, we were sending them each month to hundreds of people and then to many more later by email as the internet was developed and became more common to use. We stopped writing them once we began writing and publishing books in 2011, but we did continue to a fashion to have them on our blog sites in a question and answer form about the elven way. We have put all of these letters in a three volume series of books on Amazon (The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1, 2, & 3), and are sharing some of these letters in a short series here on this blog site.

We hope you will enjoy reading all three of our books of our Magical Elven Love Letters!

The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1, is composed of the letters that were written by the Silver Elves and sent out via snail mail beginning in 1979 and until the mid nineties before the awakening of the internet. They were written to encourage elves to awaken to their Elfin nature, to be true to their individual destiny, and to embrace their starry heritage. They are filled with Elven Philosophy and observe the world from the point of view of the Elves, which is often quite unique from how most people view and experience the world; and their unique Elven Philosophy of Magic that is often similar and yet distinct from traditional theories and methods of magic. This is the second printing of these letters and they have been slightly modified to increase clarity. They are also interspaced with Elven quotes, axioms, koans and other ancient Elven sayings.

These letters are filled with Elven Philosophy and observe the world from the point of view of the Elves, which is often quite unique from how most people view and experience the world; and their unique Elven Philosophy of Magic that is often similar and yet distinct from traditional theories and methods of magic.

And Something for Diviners to check out!

The Silver Elves have several original Elven divination systems that have been created to be used  by Elfae and all other interested diviners, including The Elven Star Oracle, Elven Geomancy, and our most recent oracle system: STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS, CHARMS AND BONES: An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

sticksandstonescover

 STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS,CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

by The Silver Elves

     This original oracle system uses the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame.

     You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

Why we Silver Elves Have Come to Reject the Idea that our Faerie Peoples are Exclusively Descended from the Scythians and Annunaki

August 2, 2022

illuminating faerie complete small copy

” . . .  the Seelie Folk of the earliest elfae were more interested in love, romance and harmonious relationships than fighting (as lore often indicates) and ever seeking a return to the days of yore when we lived together in harmony and peace. Thus, we are, as ever, the Peoples of the Ancient Future.”

tiny_green_7star

According to some, the Daoine Sidhe, also called the Aos Si and the Tuatha de Danann of ancient Ireland, where related to and descended from the Scythians and the Annunaki of Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian mythos. And having seen the evidence they presented, we have no doubt that this is true. However, we Silver Elves have ever felt and have come to ever more strongly believe that not only did our peoples manifest worldwide, not just in European culture as some people would believe, but that we came from even earlier races of peoples. After all, all tales and lore about us elfae declare that we are the Elder/Eldar race, the oldest manifest race of humanoid and mixed race peoples on this planet. Laurence Gardner reinforces this idea somewhat in his book The Realm of the Ring Lords when he presents evidence of a possible link between our peoples and the former continent of Lemuria.

For one thing, the ancient Scythians were like many of the peoples of their time, a warrior culture that was one of many such peoples around them, each fighting with their neighbors for dominance for various territories. They were not unlike, and in fact we expect they were very much like, the Mongols who would arise later and conquer much of the world.

And the Daoine Sidhe and the Tuatha de Danann are listed in the Lebor Gabála Érenn or The Book of Invasions as invaders of Ireland. Which is to say people who came to Ireland and claimed the land, fighting and overcoming others who were already there and later facing invasion by others yet to come who defeated them. The eternal nature of war and conquest.

Now, we Silver Elves know and accept all of this, although it is mostly prehistory for the most part and fragmented factually. And while much of their tale is based upon myth, we still accept these tales in their essence as we do most of faerie lore. However, while we understand that there are warrior elfae folk, we still are of a mind that there were even earlier races of elvish folk who were not so inclined toward warlike behavior as a fundamental part of their culture as was the case with the Scythians and related tribes. Which is not to say that these earlier, less warlike, elfae would not defend thems’elves if necessary. It is not that they couldn’t fight, or wouldn’t fight, but they, for the most part, choose not to whenever a greater alternative presented itself.

We Silver Elves are of a mind that there were earlier elfae peoples, the true Eldar, who were a more peaceful people, mostly forest peoples, sometimes later agrarian folk, who lived in harmony with the Earth and Nature and with each other until the invaders came and overwhelmed their cultures leading, in time, to the world of seemingly perpetual war that we have today. Most of us were absorbed into those aggressive cultures, either by being taken as slaves or killed and reborn as their children, but we still inwardly retain our elvish sense that the world and the people in it would be better off with cooperation than competitive and harmony rather than unceasing conflict.

Besides our own inner sense of the truth of this, where do we get such an idea? Is there any confirmation of this in history at all? Well, we look to the works of Marija Gimbutas who researched the Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures of “Old Europe” and had a theory that a group of invaders whom she referred to as the Kurgans came into Western Europe and overwhelmed the more peaceful farming and forest folk that lived there. Although, her theories were highly criticized and disregarded at first, evidence of these invasions, of a rise of a male sky god oriented dominating pastural cultures that overran ‘partnership’ cultures that honored the Earth as Goddess has since been demonstrated (see Sacred Pleasure by Riane Eisler).

While the Scythians and the later Sidhe and Tuatha de Danann were clearly elfae cultures, they were cultures that were driven westward by the aggressive cultures of Man and responded to that by then invading others. Taking on, but not entirely, the aggressive stance of Men. Whereas the Seelie Folk of the earliest elfae were more interested in love, romance and harmonious relationships than fighting (as lore often indicates, also see the elves in The Witcher series) and ever seeking a return to the days of yore when we lived together in harmony and peace. Thus, we are, as ever, the Peoples of the Ancient Future.

“A Crystal is a Million Stars United,” an excerpt from The Magical Elven Love Letters by The Silver Elves

July 13, 2022

starry night

As many of you know, we Silver Elves have been living and sharing the Elven Way since 1975. In 1979, we began writing and circulating The Magical Elven Love Letters to our elven community through regular snail mail (no computers at the time). At this time, modern day elves were just beginning to awaken to their elven soulful nature and we wanted to share our letters at that time to support and encourage those that were beginning to awaken to be true to their individual destiny and to embrace their starry heritage. In time as the decades went on, we were sending them each month to hundreds of people and then many more later by email or on our website as the internet became common to use. We stopped writing the Magical Elven Love Letters in 2011 once we began writing and publishing books (see our 60+ The Silver Elves books here). We have put all of these letters (over 300 in all) in a three volume series of books that are published and available on Amazon (for more on these books see The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1, Volume 2, & Volume 3), and we would like to share some of these here with you. So we will begin with a letter from volume 1, one of the first ones (#15) we sent around back in the late 70s. Hope you enjoy reading it!
Excerpt from A Crystal is a Million Stars United” from The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1

LETTER NUMBER 1-15. . . . A CRYSTAL IS A MILLION STARS UNITED

“It is our way to look within to our own spirits for the harmony and peace from which the creative energy of the Great Mother Nature flows outward to perceive a new world of unity. So it is through this inward looking that we reflect in our words and actions clear vision of our s’elves. Our vision mirrors in all directions to the world its purest part… the s’elf in All.”
 
“We, through the ages, have striven to obtain a clearer vision of our s’elves. The world of conflicts remind us that we still have far to go, a journey long, long, long it is… a journey to the stars. A journey to the stars within us. We seek to transcend outer conflict by turning within to our own s’elves. Our true s’elves, our inner identity goes much deeper and yet is simpler far than the enculturated roles we play as we pass into and out of the worlds. By seeking Elfin within ours’elves and by striving to see “the elf” that is in everyone we obtain a clearer vision of the life we once knew… the unity of all.”
 
“We play the roles of society for the sake of preserving unity. Still the archetypical forms with which we do identify are far from the structured worlds of social standing and IQ ratings. No more of it. We have come to dance and sing and listen to birds… remembering ages long gone by enough to come again… come again.”
 
“Elfin is for us not so much a place we can go, as a place we can be. It is the energy we expend toward becoming more gentle and more loving… the effort to evolve and develop our inner natures, our modesty and adaptability and our unending purpose to respect and be fair to all creatures whatsoever… these are the real steps to Elfin and it is our wish that all the Elves might transform those steps into a dance of love that will be to the children a bright and radiant mandala whose center is the dawning of a gentle race.”
 
“Elfin is open to all people whatsoever, yet it is equally true to say that at the present time/space juncture there are very few who are open to Elfin and thus they could never enter it. These fine folk can never even see the elves even when we are sharing a space/time. We, by nature, strive for union… it is our way… with these folks as with all. We share the air, the swaying of the trees, the song of the bird… invisible magic vibrations emanate and we are all the better for the experience and it “lit the fire to the soul who never knew its friend”. It is not our purpose to impose elfinness upon anyone… an act impossible in its core and no true elf would try… yet for those who are open, whose inner heart remembers a tune half forgotten from long, long ago and far, far away, we move ever deeper into the Faerielands. Come along, elves. It is a long journey ahead but together it can be a great adventure. A new land, a new life, a new people and a brighter day.”
 
“There comes a moment in each elf’s life when standing on the border of twilight that lies between the world of normal reality and the elfin lands beyond… a realization comes of a sudden that the twilight is fading and that they must move of their own into the faerielands or remain in the world of the everyday. We are going, brothers and sisters, into the elfin realms and our hearts are alive with the memory of ancient lifetimes when we were all together. Our minds remember not but in our hearts dwell memories that cannot be obscured through the aeons of life and death. As we watch you, standing on the border hesitant, drifting, listening to the voice of the thousand misgivings, the lies, the rationalizations, we sing to you gently: Remember… Remember… Remember long ago, or… was it only yesterday or soon to be tomorrow. We are going and trust that our children’s children’s children will emerge in the vibrational reality of Arda reborn: a planet healed and paradise won.”
 
Kyela,

“Some people think that we elfin are re-emerging in the world in order to take control. We find this idea laughable. We have not come to control the world but to set it free.”

The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1, is composed of the letters that were written by the Silver Elves and sent out via snail mail beginning in 1979 and until the mid nineties before the awakening of the internet. They were written to encourage elves to awaken to their Elfin nature, to be true to their individual destiny, and to embrace their starry heritage. They are filled with Elven Philosophy and observe the world from the point of view of the Elves, which is often quite unique from how most people view and experience the world; and their unique Elven Philosophy of Magic that is often similar and yet distinct from traditional theories and methods of magic. This is the second printing of these letters and they have been slightly modified to increase clarity. They are also interspaced with Elven quotes, axioms, koans and other ancient Elven sayings.

The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2 is our second collection of our love letters, composed principally of 110 of letters sent out by snail mail and later some are our earliest internet letters in the 1990s. You can find samples of these letters on various sites all over the web, for they were some of our most popular letters and have been copied and spread around frequently. It is not necessary to read Volume 1 before reading and enjoying Volume 2. These letters give the reader an experiential understanding of what it is to be an elf and enter the realm of Faerie and Magick. Enjoy!

Excerpt below from The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2:

“. . . . As we struggle to create Faerie; it, like mist, remains forever beyond our grasp. But as we live Faerie, live our lives as elves and pixies, brownies and gnomes… Faerie manifests within us and in time around us affecting the SPACE/TIME continuum, shifting us from one parallel realm to another until we find one day the trees shimmering like stars… a light sparkling in the eyes of everyone we meet and the ecstatic joy of every breath. To man this seems a dream, a fantasy that will never or can never happen or be, or as he perceives time, will be so long from now as to be irrelevant to his life. But for the elfin, time moves differently, past, present and future all merges into one, the eternal possibility of every moment. We live our dreams and by doing so create that world man thinks does not even exist.”

“Yet, the more we become in tune with our true s’elves, the more we are manifesting living Elfin, the greater the power we have and the greater the effect upon everyone we come in contact with. Man and other races cannot help but be effected by our presence, our being, our magic, just as we, for our part cannot live in the world of Man and not be effected and take into account the power of his manifest being and outlook. There are those who would like to totally separate thems’elves from man and we can certainly understand their point of view but it is an occult truth that we cannot affect anyone unless we ourselves are ready and open to being influenced. Shall we become like the Amish, suspended in time? We think not. WE are here not simply to create our own world but to help transform this one, to ease mankind to a more gentle and ‘dancey’ approach to life and to awaken him to his own destiny, which is, like ours, Here among the Stars!”

The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 3, is composed of some of our early letters that we wrote and sent out on the internet prior to the year 2000, as well as all of the letters sent out and/or published during our journey and relocation to Hawaii in 2008, with accounts of our encounters with the menehuni and the unfolding magic of the isles. These letters are filled with Elven Philosophy and observe the world from the point of view of the Elves, which is often quite unique from how most people view and experience the world; and their unique Elven Philosophy of Magic that is often similar and yet distinct from traditional theories and methods of magic. Like the first two volumes, volume 3 is interspaced with Elven quotes, axioms, koans and other ancient Elven sayings. This book is the completion of the trilogy of The Magical Elven Love Letters.

you can quite certain that it will not be too long,
before the party starts and the dancing does as well
for Faerie shimmers in the night as all the stars do tell.”

Announcing our Newest Published The Silver Elves book:

ILLUMINATING FAERIE: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path, Volume 6 by The Silver Elves (You do not need to read this series in any particular order)

illuminating faerie cover2

We hope you enjoy reading this excerpt below from Illuminating Faerie (click here to read more about this book!)

“. . . . The Elven Way is ever changing but what one is learning is not the path itself but how to successfully travel on the path. It is, in its way, like learning to walk so one can stroll down unfamiliar lanes. Or learning to drive a car so one can travel unknown roads. The key is one’s own ability as a driver. There is no exact map for the way itself (for Faerie is ever changing) but there is a way to improve one’s skill at traveling upon it.”

     “Therefore, the emphasis in the Elven Way is ever on s’elf development. And as one develops ones’elf and grows more confident in one’s skills and abilities, without becoming arrogant and thus heedless about them, one naturally feels more at ease with ones’elf and one’s ability to successfully navigate the various worlds one encounters and travels through. And that confidence, along with a sense of purpose one obtains in sharing the Elven Way with others seeking the path, inevitably eases tensions in one’s life and one’s interactions with the world.”

    “Although, it is true that the world can be a stressful place. That is part of its dark magic and the web of spells it entangles one within. By its nature and design, the world of men creates tension and we who live within this modern Middle-earth cannot help but be affected by it in some ways. And yet, that is the adventure, too. What adventure doesn’t have its stresses? It is the nature of the quest.”

     “But again, as we become more adept within ours’elves and more accustomed and practiced in the ways, our Mastery makes easy what was once very difficult. Even those things that previously seemed as though they might overwhelm us, are now just challenges to overcome.”

     “And while the Elven Way is a very individual oriented way, we should remember that we are treading it together, each in our own way, and our frasority (fraternity/sorority) makes light and easy what would be difficult on one’s own. For as we Silver Elves say, “Together our magic is stronger by far.” And far easier and less stressful as well.”

The Way of the Elfin awakens our heart,
it quiets our mind and that
s just the start,
it stirs our spirit and deepens our soul
and weaves its magic to make our lives whole.

. . . . And we also invite you to read another of our newest published books. . . THE FAERIE SONG ORACLE: The Elven Way of Singing Down Magic of the Fae is so named because it is an original elfin oracle system based upon the solfège or solfeggio system, also called solfa, solfeo, which is used as a music education method in the West to teach aural skills, pitch and the sight-reading of the music scale. That scale is Do, Re, Me, Fa, Sol or So, La and Te, with another Do representing a higher octave, at the end. We have presented these notes in this oracle according to the way they would be spelled in Arvyndase, which is the Silver Elves magical elfin language. And, therefore, these musical sounds/notes would be spelled: DO, RAE, ME, FA, SOL, LA, and TE, which as you can see only differs in one instance. The pronunciation, however, is the same. The Faerie Song Oracle book is meant to be used as an oracle, but it is also a book of magic. Thus, the sounds can be sung together to create a particular magic that either heightens the power of a boon or dispels unwanted influences. The Silver Elves associate these notes with each of the points of the seven-pointed acute angled Elven Star that many people call the Faerie Star. For each oracle reading, you will be drawing two notes. So you might consider that in drawing the faerie song oracle you are dealing with the power of two of the points of the elven star combined (each point signified by a different note) or one of the points in its pure form (if both of the notes that you draw are the same, as say when you get Rae-Rae as a response). The second Rae can be sung on a higher octave evoking a raising or increase of that power.

6throughmistswebThrough The Mists of Faerie:
A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven

“Elfin, Faerie, Elfland or the Sacred Realm or Dimension of Magic that lives at the heart of the Universe, is an incredibly attractive power. It draws all true souls to it. It calls to the Elfin nature in each and every soul. This is the power that arouses the imagination of those who see or read the Lord of the Rings and say, I’m an Elf or I’m a Dwarf, or even I’m an Orc. The power calls to us through Urban Fantasy stories and the fantasy novels of old, as well as, faery tales and movies of magic and enchantment. But it also calls to us from the trees, the wild places of Nature, and sometimes most of all from magic memories of our childhood, which is really our ancient past, our past incarnations, calling to us. It can also be aroused, and quite strongly, perhaps most strongly, by others of our kind manifesting in the world. There is something magical about these beings and they arouse our own hunger for magic in our own lives and souls. These Elfae radiate starlight. They glimmer with love, kindness and compassion; and they reach out and touch our souls. Some might suppose this to be a glamor, a magic they have wrapped thems’elves within to enchant us; but while they are truly enchanting, the magic arises from the fact that they are genuine and real. They don’t need to glamor us. They just need to be their very own s’elves, for that is the most impressive magic of all. They are not trying, they are simply being: being thems’elves, being elves.”

Illuminating Faerie:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path, Volume 6

This book is found here on Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Illuminating-Faerie-Answers-Questions-Following/dp/B0B4G37HJY

And here on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Illuminating-Faerie-Answers-Questions-Following/dp/B0B4G37HJY

In ILLUMINATING FAERIE, we Silver Elves continue with a volume six of our question and answer series addressing the numerous questions about who the elves are and about the elven way. In this book we address questions that have been posed to us throughout our 40+ years of following the elven spiritual path and sharing with the world that we are elves in human bodies. Also see The Magical Realms of Elfin, volume 1; Manifesting Elfin, volume 2; The New Dawn of Elfin, volume 3; Visions of Elfin, volume 4; and Elfin Rising, volume 5. There is no particular order in which one needs to read these books.

      Illuminating Faerie explores further questions about the realms of Elfin and Faerie; the elven spirit, past lives, and spiritual evolution; the origins of the Faerie people, Daoine Sidhe, and the Tuatha de Danann; our Dwarf kin; the Fomorians; elven magic; elven oracles; movies and TV series about elfae; novels and books about elves and faeries; the lifestyle of elves and other manifested Faerie folk; the Faerie Courts; some things you may have always wanted to know about Elves and other Fae folk; and reviews on Faerie – Elfin tarot and other inspirational oracle decks.

      Some of the specific questions answered in Illuminating Faerie are: Is Elfin a place or a state of mind? Is it valid to create your own version of Elfin in your mind? Do you need to knock on the door of Faerie nine times? Are Devas part of the Faerie realm? What is our elves relationship to the sun and the sun wheel? Is Elfin or Faerie to be found in the Uttermost West? What is the association between Black Dogs and Faerie? Does fae involvement in the lives of those who are normal always end badly? Do we elves belong to the land of the dead? Could one have been an elemental in a past life? Is spiritual evolution hierarchal in form? Is there a karmic reason when we are involved in “bad” relationships? Were elves formerly gods that were downgraded? Can a person be elevated to the status of an elf after their death? Can we get to Faerie by committing suicide? Did the Tuatha de Danann live in a mirror world? Why have we Silver Elves come to reject the idea that our faerie peoples are exclusively descended from the Scythians and Annunaki? Are elves related to the giants of Norse lore? Did the original elves have dark bluish skin? Are fae folk related to aliens from outer space? Are dwarves a type of elf? Did the dwarves predate the elves? Are dwarves always short beings? Are dwarves and leprechauns the same? Were the Fomorians dwarves and monsters? Were the Fomorians, Vikings? Why do people use props in their magic workings when pure energy will do? Must we go left to banish and right to evoke? Will hanging a horseshoe above your door keep the faeries away? Can a spirit/teraphim leave its statue and go forth and do things? Does speaking to spirits put you in their power? When is it a good time to do a rune, as opposed to tarot, I Ching, etc.? Is it alright to buy your own tarot deck? Can our oracle book ‘Sticks and Stones’ be used for Magic? What did we Silver Elves think of the movie Captain Fantastic? . . . of A Discovery Of Witches? . . . of the movie A Boy Named Christmas? . . . of the series Elves? . . . of  Faery Tale by Signe Pike? What do the elfae think of the book The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison? Are all manifest elves, dark elves? Are Faeries offended if you acknowledge them directly? Do we fae folk hate humans? Do we have the right to do so? Should we fae hate humans? Do we elfae have any rules to follow? If so, what are they? Can we be more than one kintype? Have we elves lost touch with our Faerie heritage? How is it possible that elves might give birth to fairies and vice versa? How do we Silver Elves view the Seelie, Unseelie and Dark Elfae? What about Bohemian Court and Wild Court? Can you belong to more than one Faerie Court? Do we even need courts? Do elves communicate through dreams? Are dark elves and black elves the same?

What Do Elves Mean by the Term Otherworldly? And Is Elfin a Place or State of Mind?

June 22, 2022

Zardoa wire circles behind

“When we Silver Elves define otherworldly, we are not talking entirely about imaginary worlds so much as visionary worlds, worlds that could be if we were, or most of us were, more spiritually developed, intelligent, loving and cooperative. When we speak of otherworldly, we mean a world that exists for some of us because we make it real in our own lives. It is otherworldly because it is so different in essence, culture and behavior from the normal cultures (in their various forms) that the mass of humanity embraces and believe to be the only real worlds because they believe in them. . . . We could call our realms alternate worlds, although we very much like the term otherworldly with its combination of spiritual, imaginal, mystical, magical and supernatural connotations. Which is part of why we elves are otherworldly beings in the first place. We embrace what others reject and we do so completely with all our hearts, minds and souls. . . . wherever we elfae folk go or abide there goes our spirits as well and there manifests Elfin/Faerie expressed outwardly by the radiance of our inner elvish being.”

What Do Elves Mean by the Term Otherworldly?

We Silver Elves commonly use the word otherworldly to describe Faerie and Elfin. If you look it up in the dictionary, otherworldly is defined as a world that is imaginary or spiritual. It is interesting to our elvish minds that imaginary worlds and spiritual worlds are essentially defined as the same thing, as though things spiritual are really imaginary. However, that is to be expected in this most material of ages where nearly everything is defined by physicality and our elven and faerie-ness are often ascribed to physical features and genetic lineage. Although, while Men seem to put spiritual in the same category as imaginary, by this definition, we doubt that they would do the opposite, which is to posit that things imaginary are necessarily spiritual, which would be a more elvish and otherworldly way of looking at things.

     Some dictionaries define otherworldly as referring to a world beyond death or beyond our present reality. Although, they also carry the meaning of imaginary realms as well. This is quite in keeping, in its way, with the notion that we elfae folk live longer than normal humans or that we are immortal or close to being immortal. Immortal, we suppose, in the way that vampires are conceived of as being immortal in the sense that they will live forever unless they are killed or commit suicide, or forget to use their suntan lotion. What we might call provisional immortality, or immortality, sort of.

     Part of this idea of otherworldliness derives from the fact that our elfae peoples were absorbed, for the most part, by dominating and dominant cultures that violently overran us ages ago. So far back, in fact, that our people have been turned into myths and legends to the point where some people, in fact most people, in the modern age question whether our peoples ever existed at all. This despite the clear and evident fact that we modern elfae assert our heritage very strongly. Of course, they just think that we are crazy or imagining things, or even suffering from Schizotypal Personality Disorder (see our blog article on this here) for believing in things that are not accepted by the mass of humanity. For truth in the world is required to be popular to be accepted. 

     For many elfae, this results in an effort to find their ancestry in the material world and to create graphs or charts tracing their lineage back to the Scythians or some other peoples that are seen as the source and inspiration for many of the legends about elves, fae, faeries and otherkin of various sorts.

     We Silver Elves, however, as we’ve made quite clear often to the chagrin of those who insist upon a materialistic basis for the elfae nature, are of the opinion that we are elfin spirits incarnating purposely into humanoid bodies and our physical lineage is not utterly germane to our true natures any more than the car that we drive defines our personality. Although some people in the world would believe this to be so.

     Not that we reject the idea that some individuals are descended from the Scythians, the Phrygian or certain Norse or Scandinavian folk who were considered elfin or aelfar. But we trace our own elvish lineage back further beyond those people who were, really, dominator cultures, to those even earlier folks who lived in partnership societies, where males and females were considered equals and women were not seen as being somehow weaker or inferior or needing to be subdued and controlled by men as was the case with many of those ancient peoples and which persists today. This perspective still exists very strongly in some cultures in the modern world but manifests also in certain ways in many of those cultures that are seen as advanced, developed and supposed enlightened in the world. First world nations, as they like to call themselves. Note that the United States of America has never had, up to this writing, a woman president. Let that sink in.

     When we Silver Elves define otherworldly, we are not talking entirely about imaginary worlds so much as visionary worlds, worlds that could be if we were, or most of us were, more spiritually developed, intelligent, loving and cooperative. When we speak of otherworldly, we mean a world that exists for some of us because we make it real in our own lives. It is otherworldly because it is so different in essence, culture and behavior from the normal cultures (in their various forms) that the mass of humanity embraces and believe to be the only real worlds because they believe in them.

     We could call our realms alternate worlds, although we very much like the term otherworldly with its combination of spiritual, imaginal, mystical, magical and supernatural connotations. Which is part of why we are otherworldly beings in the first place. We embrace what others reject and we do so completely with all our hearts, minds and souls.

 

Is Elfin a Place or a State of Mind?

     Most people think of Elfin and Faerie as places that are physical, in a way, while still being of an etheric nature. Physical but otherworldly, in a parallel dimension that one can step into if one can find the portal, just as one could step across the border from their own country into another. And this idea is certainly reinforced and, in many ways, prompted by various stories about elfae folk and our realms in legend, lore, myth and fiction.

     The ancient Celts and others believed that Faerie was the land of the dead (see Fairy Faith in the Celtic Countries by Walter Evans-Wentz and The Hidden History of Elves & Dwarfs: Avatars of Invisible Realms by Claude Lecouteux). After dying here, one took up life there in a more paradisiacal realm and when one died there one returned to this world again. Faerie and Elfin were more dreamlike in that way, which is to say that, just like dreams when one is dreaming, it all is very real, only potentially more fantastic.

     If that is the case then the portal to Faerie would be death in most cases, although there are exceptions to this on both sides of the equation as is evidenced in this world by a belief in ghosts or the appearance of a loved one who has just died prior to passing over and the idea of near-death experience where one goes into or approaches the other world but then returns. Plus, there is the fact that those who have died can still appear in our dreams, although often in altered bodies that while not resembling their earthly appearance are still clearly those individuals manifesting in the Dreamtime.

     Of course, not everyone who dies would go to Faerie. Only those of elfae inclination and nature and association would do so. Men would go to a world of their own as is indicated by the Norse belief in separate realms on the World Tree. Men, most likely, even in that more ethereal dreamlike world wouldn’t realize there was a Faerie at all. Men who deny the existence of we elfae folk in this world are unlikely to acknowledge us in that one either. In their dream world, we don’t exist.

     Our concern here, for the most part, however, is not about the part of Faerie that exists in the Between (see our book Beyond Death: The Elfin Book of the Dead. Ascending towards the Faerie Realms through Progressive Incarnations), but about manifesting Elfin and Faerie in this world, which is, in that sense, the portal to living in Faerie in that other world. For it is those who manifest as elfae folk in this world, especially those who have the courage to do so somewhat openly, who are surely bound for Faerie and Elfin when they pass into the otherworldly dream realms.

     And in this world, this more material realm, Elfin and Faerie do not exist (as yet or currently) as permanent stationary places, as say Japan exists or France. But then even those countries and, in fact, every other, have changed their boundaries from time to time through history and in the long run it is not the place that makes the country but the people and their culture. If we are to believe the ancient tales of our people, Ireland and the British Isles and Western France where once ours but, for the most part, passed from our hands long ago.

     Thus, for us Silver Elves, Elfin and Faerie are primarily states of being and consciousness that exist in potential in many places, particularly in Nature, but manifest prominently wherever we are expressing our elvish natures. The magical realms are far more fluid, and much like Nirvana is not a permanent place but exists as we can achieve the state of mind to do so. Think of Faerie and Elfin not as countries, although there are surely those who wish that they were countries, but rather like ships or even buses on or in which elfae folk live. The ship may be docked or the bus parked in a particular spot but they can also move about and wherever the elfae move, there also Faerie/Elfin manifests. If the ship sinks or the bus dies, we inhabit another, continuing to manifest Elfin through our lives and magic.

     Therefore, wherever we elfae folk go or abide there goes our spirits as well and there manifests Elfin/Faerie expressed outwardly by the radiance of our inner elvish being. We could, theoretically, buy land and call that Elfin but when we passed from this world, we would still be taking most of our entourage of spirits with us and that land may or may not pass into the hands elfae who would continue to manifest Elfin there, which is to say here in the material realm. And inevitably in the vast realms of time, that land would surely return to Nature and eventually into the Universe, which is to say the Void, anyway. And we elfae folk, wherever we might be, would continue on shining, as best we are able, as we manifest our beloved Elfin.

Smiling Faces_Poem
Many Kindred have asked us what is “The Elven Way.” Although we have written books on it (see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), here below is our short definition:

Short definition ofThe Elven Way” by The Silver Elves

“The Elven Way is the spiritual path of the Elves. It is not a religion. While all elves are free to pursue whatever spiritual path they desire, or not as the case may be, The Silver Elves are magicians and follow no particular religious dogma. We do however believe in all the Gods and Goddesses, (also Santa Claus [to whom we’re related], the tooth fairy [distant cousins] and the Easter or Ostara Bunny [no relation]) and try to treat them all with due respect. The Elven Way promotes the principles of Fairness, that is to say both Justice, Elegance and Equal Opportunity and Courtesy that is respectful in its interactions and attitude toward all beings, great or small. We understand the world as a magical or miraculous phenomena, and that all beings, by pursuing their own true path, will become whomever they truly desire to be. Our path is that of Love and Magic and we share our way with all sincerely interested individuals.”

     “To remind us ever of the need to rise up and lift our others with us, to have compassion for others even those who oppose us, to endeavor to understand the true natures and motivations not only of ours’elves but all others, the Shining Ones send us Sages who appear in many forms, in nearly all cultures and speak though various social and religious philosophies encouraging us to strive toward the light, to seek ever the good of all, and to further spiritual evolution in all that we do. We elves call this the Way of the Fair or The Elven Way. The Path is never-ending, the Way is ever before us, the Choice is always now, and we are eternally evolving. This is the Elven Way. The enculturation and other protections that shield the normal folk from the realization of other dimensions are lifted when the elf steps upon the path and begins to tread the Elven Way. The Elven Way gives our lives meaning and purpose. We come to understand who we truly are, that is that we are spirits evolving and we establish a purpose in our lives, which generally might be expressed as aiding ours’elves and all others to fulfill ours’elves perfectly. That is to say, we become who are truly are, which is who we truly desire to be. Remember, we ever wish to be our own true s’elves as perfectly as possible, which means among other things to be happy and successful forever, to live Happily Ever After.”

Many Elven Blessings, Dear Kindred! 

When do we Silver Elves Feel It Is a Good Time to Draw a Rune, as Opposed to Reading the Tarot, the I Ching, etc.?

June 15, 2022

 

silverrune copy

     This question was posed in one of our Silver Elves Facebook groups and it is one that we also consider from time to time ours’elves. Although not in a general way for the most part. This is to say that we are not thinking about a general policy for when one oracle would be more effective than another. Rather, we are confronting that question in a very situational fashion, when we have a specific question and wonder which oracle, of which we have many, might be best suited to answering our specific inquiry. And, of course, there is nothing wrong, per se, with consulting a number of different oracles on a particular question. We do this frequently.

     First of all, we do the I Ching at least once a day. It gives us some understanding of the energies we will be dealing with that day and often it reflects things we have thought or said before we got around to doing it. We have our own version of the I Ching called The Elven Book of Changes but we also find that the traditional Wilhelm/Baynes translation is quite accurate and effective, although it still bears the male oriented aspects of ancient Chinese society, which is why we created our own version that is both elven, magical and does not have a gender bias to it.

     But, besides doing the Ching every day, we also find it our primary resource when we are confronting any serious challenges or questions or we are about to do something important and wonder how it will work out. Part of the reason for its effectiveness as an oracle is that its interpretations are quite clearly elucidated. Which doesn’t mean one isn’t faced with the necessity of interpreting it and understanding it in terms of one’s current situation, but it does make that easier. Overall, it tends to be less subjective than, say, the Tarot.

     However, the tarot makes a great supplemental oracle. By which we mean, if we do the I Ching and wish to know more, we then consult the tarot (see our two books concerning the tarot The Elven Book of Powers and The Voice of Faerie). There was a time, decades ago, when we would draw cards from the tarot and place them on our magic table through the day. We did that for years. Also, we were professional tarot readers for decades. We read at the swap markets for over fifteen years but also worked for a call-in phone service for tarot for over five years. The tarot, we find, is great for when you have a series of questions, especially a series of related questions. It is also particularly good for arousing one’s intuition about a situation or set of circumstances. And sometimes we use a number of different decks, asking the same question of various decks and integrating their answers.

     While you could use the runes for answering any question, we Silver Elves most often use them for questions about our magic and our people. But we also use them in addition to the I Ching and Tarot to give further illumination. We do have our own rune book (The Book of Elven Runes), which is, in fact, one of our most popular books. There is just something cool about runes overall. We love them.

     For simple yes/no questions, the pendulum can be quite effective. However, we taught a class on Jungian psychology one time at Sonoma State University, and used the I Ching, Tarot and other oracles to help illuminate his works and there was a girl in our class that we tried to get to use the pendulum one evening but her hand was so steady, the pendulum made no reply. In retrospect, we realized we should have had her close her eyes, which we think would have produced a result.

     When it comes to finding out about people and their lives, their fate, destiny and evolutionary direction overall, astrology is quite effective. Our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters used to draw up a natal chart and progressed chart for those who were new to our circle and it was those sisters who taught us how to do astrology. However, while we’ve contemplated the idea of creating a book of Elven Astrology, which would have 13 sun signs instead of the tradition twelve, we’ve never gotten around to it and it would be difficult to translate a traditional ephemeris to our system. So that will probably have to wait for another lifetime.

     You can, of course, do astrology for day to day readings as well, or about starting a business, about a relationship with someone and so on. The ancient Romans did this a lot. But it is a bit time intensive for most people.

     We Silver Elves, however, love oracles of various kinds and we have created a number of oracle books, many of which can also be used for magic. Our book The Elven Book of Dreams is based upon the 360 degrees of the zodiac and is based upon dreams (and the symbols within them) that we had and collected over a few decades. It is valuable for illuminating the various signs of one’s astrology chart. One can look up one’s sun sign, moon sign, etc. and get interesting information about ones’elf. It is similar in that way to Dane Rudhyar’s book An Astrological Mandala only ours is more magical and elvish.

     You might also check out our books Elven Geomancy and our book Sticks, Stones, Feathers, Charms and Bones. And there are other books we’ve written that can be used as oracles as well. We won’t name them all here. But we love oracles. We love doing oracles. We love creating oracles. And we think that the best time to do a particular oracle, I Ching, Runes, Tarot or some other oracle, really, is when you feel like it.

Reviews:

Thank you so very much Delfynasa for your comments on Amazon about The Book of Elven Runes:
“One of my favorite divination books. It is beautifully written and illustrated. I have taken my copy everywhere! So it is ‘broken in’ looking. If you like runes but want something a little different this is great book. If you are really into Elves or are an Elf you will LOVE this book!!!”
________________
Thank you dear Gail Avrill for your review on Goodreads and Amazon:
“I love the Silver Elves’ books. “The Book of Elven Runes” is an original and unique system of divination with 40 elven runes (I was surprised to find that it is not based on either the Norse Runes or on Tolkien’s runes). This book is subtitled a “Passage into Faerie” and I think for good reason as by following the oracle it helps in getting closer to understanding that wondrous realm.”
________________
We received two letters from our sister, Sorynvala, after she purchased the original edition of The Elven Book of Runes (2001). Sorynvala has kindly given us permission to share some of her comments about The Elven Book of Runes.
“Dear Silver Elves,
I have received and read through the book and all I can say is Wow!
What a wonderful and magickal gift you have crafted for Elvenkind.
Thank you. The Runes are already fast becoming part of my daily
experience in many different ways…”

Later, she wrote: “Your book is truly a Gift to any who would have it and I heartily recommend it to anyone. I did of course admire the professional quality of the book and the obvious technical skills you employed in putting it together. On that level it is very nice indeed! But I have to admit, it is the obvious Love and Dedication and Elven Magick that you put into it – which fairly drips off the pages! – that *really* makes it special in my mind.”

Excerpt from The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie:


Sample of one of our Runes (from page 67-68):

samplerune18
Rune 18: Hollow

Spell:
A sacred place both warm and safe
Protected among the elfin race.
Magical Implement: temple, grove or bower
The Magical Act:
Go to a magical place, step across into Faerie, camp and spend the night. The Hollow is a secure place, an eald of it’s own, a little world in which one can be safe, at least for a time. It is a place of gathering and denotes also an opening or a passage way. The hollow is usually a quieter world, isolated and buffered from the more active regions around it. It is a sanctuary and thus a place where the spirit can easily manifest. It is the grotto, the quiet place within our inner being that offers residence for the Divine, the space in which Nature’s voice can be ‘felt’. It is the hidden valley— the home of Shangrala. Here the elf folk may come without fear of the madness and callousness of the world of men. It is the cradle in which the babe rocks, secure in it’s Mother’s love.

Since it is also an opening, it signifies the place where the lucky may stumble accidentally, wandering unintentionally across the boundaries of the world into the twilight realms of the netherworld. One may touch the realms of magic and thus receive inspiration, which one may take back with them into the hustle and bustle of the world.
Those who receive this rune should take time to contemplate, to retreat for the time being to receive inspiration. Perhaps Nature whispers and we must grow silent within ours’elves and without ours’elves to hear Her voice. Bring yourself to a safe, secure place, retreating for the time being, opening yourself, trusting in a space of security, just as the babe depends and trusts in the love and care of it’s Mother. So, too, you must put yourself like a babe in the hands of Mother Nature. She will come to you, as soothing, as healing as inspiration. Be one with Her and the others who may have gathered with’ you. For the hollow is open to all who come, yet it is hidden from many. In the hollow all are safe together and share in quietude the unity of their life within Nature. And by trusting they find their way. That place lives within them, a place they may always retreat to, finding all their loved ones there within their own heart … and thus secure may go forth renewed and strengthened on their path through the world. And as they go they may come upon their kindred here and there and growing close, sometimes for just a moment, may touch that hollow place within them, awakening it.

Reviews:

Thank you dear Nikolay Lyapanenko for your wonderful review of The Elven Book of Powers on Goodreads:

“Great book for visualization and wish fulfillment with any deck of Tarot cards!
Tarot is not just a predictive system, allowing a person to better know his or her own inner world. Tarot cards open the way to the depths of person’s own being, to the source of perfection and spiritual growth. It is a subtle tool that allows you to look inside of yous’elf, to know your own identity and to join the cosmic consciousness. Tarot is related to high magic, the value of which — spiritual development and transformation. However, often it happens that the interpretation of one card may be quite different in different sources. Silver Elves present this magical book with their own, true interpretations for every card. Practicing magic for years, the Silver Elves at the moment are professional specialists and professionals of their business with a capital letter.

The book is written very clearly and will perfectly serve as a good helper for a novice Tarot reader and will be helpful for a professional reader as well.
Also there you can find a lot of magical spells to summon, what you really need to bring into your life or to change what happened, spells on all occasions!
I highly recommend this magical book for everyone, who wants to learn how to make all of their dreams come true and to get answers to all the vital questions!”

Excerpt from The Elven Book of Powers

Sample pages from The Elven Book of Powers:

From the Major Powers: Creation, The Magic
TAROT: MAGICIAN
SYMBOL: THE LINE
THE MAGICAL TOOL: WAND

This is the power of Creation and creativity. With this power one can create one’s own world, realm, eald, etc. Unlike the first power, which is essentially effortless and accepting, this second power strives to mold the world, or really a part of the world, by its own vision. There is a danger here that one may attempt to compel their vision upon others and force them to yield to one’s will. This, however, is a violation of the basic principles of elfin magic and a corruption of this power, which functions not through force and coercion, but by attraction and enthusiasm.
Fantasy writers who create worlds so vivid that hordes of fans hunger to enter into them give a good example of this power to us. Tolkien’s works stand as a testament to this power. This power is also true of those who founded religions, kingdoms, fashion and art styles, etc. However, if one proceeds as if their way is the only way, the one true and right way to be, then they have lost their way and are wandering toward the darkside.
The true power of creation stands as a unique and individual manifestation, among other unique and individual forms and beings. It is a star among a Universe of Stars. It is ever a pioneer, and if others follow the trail it has blazed, it does not care, for it has already moved on.
Create your own Eald, dear elfin, and invite your co-creators to join you in the weaving of a magic that makes a better world for all of us.

EVOCATION:

I summon forth the powers of Creation
I make my world anew by the power of my vision
Talents, skills, and powers come to me seeking expression
I send them forth to make the world more loving, kind, and beautiful
I send them forth to make life more exciting, adventurous, and fulfilling
I send them forth to express thems’elves perfectly
Great artists each in their chosen field.

INVOCATION:
I open myself to the powers of creativity
That I may express mys’elf truly in my own way
Creating wonders of magic and beauty in my own style
Filled with energy and power I set forth
Renewed, and revived, and ready to give to the world
The treasures that I bear within me.

ENCHANTMENT:
The powers of creation are mine
The world responds like clay
And in the course of time
We see the coming day
Awakens now renewed
Our efforts have been true
And the magic we have brewed
Will guide us on our way.

From the Minor Powers: WATER: SUIT OF CUPS
Love—Minor
TAROT: ACE OF CUPS
THE SYMBOL: THE HEART
THE MAGICAL TOOL: CHARM BRACELET

This is the root power of all relationships, whether it be family, romantic, friendship, acquaintance, legal, business or any other. They all come under the influence of this power. Being under the element/state of water/liquidity, this power is very fluid in nature and extremely adaptable, yet it retains its essential nature in its largest and most microscopic forms. It is also very feeling oriented and its essence is based upon feeling rather than mental or even spiritual attraction. Thus it is linked to both intuition and instinct, but primarily to the feeling of attraction or repulsion that draws us to or inclines us to avoid certain individuals.
For any relationship you wish to develop, improve or from which you wish to depart, this power can be of help. It is also a supplementary power to all the other fluid powers. To invoke this power is to develop your own ability in creating successful relationships, enhancing the power of your personality, giving it weight and power.
The evocation of this power brings the personal touch and an inner sense of connected-ness to even the most formal associations. If one feels they are faced with a mindless and callous bureaucracy, the conjuration of this energy will arouse a sense of sympathy and relatedness in those with whom one must interact, helping to bring the element of the human or humane/elven into an otherwise cold and uncaring association. It awakens the feeling in people, helps remind them that they are not robots, but feeling human beings/spirits, which it to say spiritual beings.

EVOCATION:
I treat all I meet with loving kindness
With gentle concern, with reassuring comfort
Each relationship bearing the potentiality for friendship
For romance, or for a delighted flirtation
Each an opportunity to spread love into the world
To make the world a better place
A more loving place
A place where love can prosper
In all its forms and variations.

INVOCATION:
I draw in the power of love
So I may see the potential for love in all situations and circumstances
So I may be able to love in all situations and circumstances
So love will fill my soul and exude from my body
As an aura of energy
Creating and atmosphere of love
Wherever I go.

ENCHANTMENT:
Love comes to me today
Love comes in everyway
Love is the very source
Love is the way, the course
Love is the action that I take
Love is the way for its own sake
Love is the purpose
And the meaning, too
Love is the goal for all I do.

Elven Blessings, dear Kindred!

Do the Elves Say that Trees Have Souls?

May 17, 2022

Silver_georgiaTree

“. . . . And of our kindred the trees, we elfae have no doubt that they sense us, and in turn we certainly have affectionate and appreciative feelings for them. Surely, they feel our love as well.”

Many religious sorts, but not all, are of the opinion that only human beings have souls. So, from that point of view, trees would not have souls, neither would cats, dogs or any other creature other than human beings, although apparently, usually according to these same people, humans can sell their souls to obtain great wealth and so forth. So from just such a perspective, while humans are born with souls, they don’t always keep them.

     We should say that we Silver Elves usually define soul differently than most other folks do. What most folks would refer to as their immortal soul, we’d call the immortal spirit. To us, soul has to do with our link to, association with, and ability to communicate with, principally through feeling and energetic vibration, everything and everyone else in the Universe. Therefore, the question here, if you asked in from our point of view, would be: Do trees have spirits?

     But let us first deal with this question in the way that it was asked of us as to whether trees have souls or not, keeping in mind our Silver Elves definition of soul. What we would have to ask ours’elves really, and what we are asking by this question is: Do trees feel? Do trees respond to other trees? Do they respond to their environment? Do they respond to things that are done to them by Mankind? And the answer that science has given us, based upon the evidence it has obtained in examining trees and other plants, and we surely can extend this to dogs, cats, and other creatures, is that they do ‘feel’ or react sensitively to each other and to their environmental circumstances. Some people might say that there is no mind involved here but then there is no mind exactly when one touches something hot and pulls back quickly. Feeling does not require mind although it does require a sort of nervous system.

     Do trees have spirit is another question. Spirit is our inner energy, which strives toward the fulfillment of some essentially Universal goals. The most essential of these is a drive toward immortality or, in its lowest manifestation, an urge to preserve one’s life, which trees have been found to do in their nurturing of seedlings with nutrients through their root systems. The other drive is a desire for happiness or success, which for a tree or plant would be growing, seeding and turning itself toward the light, on the one hand, and obtaining food and nutrients on the other.

     As spirit evolves it tends to individuate. From our Silver Elves point of view, the more individual and unique a person is, the more evolved they are as an individual spirit, as long as that uniqueness is harmonized within them. A conflicted spirit is not necessarily an evolved spirit, but it is surely evolving. Trees have spirit but it seems to be a quite serene spirit for the most part and while trees can be individual, they are not usually greatly so. Still, they are rather like yogis who mediate all the time. We elfae feel that trees may very well be quite advanced beings living their lives in deep communion and contemplation. 

     This idea of trees having spirits is brought out in the notions of dryads or tree spirits in Greek and other lore. But these spirits, rather like the idea that many people have concerning faeries, are often somewhat apart from their tree, taking care of it as one might tend a garden. On the other hand, Tolkien’s notion of the Ents, from our point of view, would indicate quite evolved tree spirits.

     Most of our ancient ancestors were animists. From their point of view all of life was imbued with soul and spirit. This would include not only the trees and plants and various animals, but also the rocks, the rivers and other things. If a rock fell on you without anyone throwing it or dislodging it, it was because the rock intended to fall on you. After them came the religious ones who thought deities caused everything and thus, from their point of view, if a rock fell on someone it was because the gods willed it to be so. Be careful when those young gods are throwing rocks or playing with wind or fire or in coconut trees.

     In modern times, we generally conceive of such events as accidents. Merely coincidences of happenstance, and even those who proclaim that they don’t believe in coincidences still generally believe in accidents.

     You can see the progression of belief somewhat in children. If a door accidently swings and hits a child, the child is likely to kick the door in response. Although, if the door was pushed by the wind, the child might still kick the door since there is no way to get back directly at that mean old wind. The same is true, in a sense, when people get so frustrated that they break dishes or punch walls. Neither the dish nor the wall is responsible for their frustration, but there is, alas, a pecking order in the world and when one can’t get back directly at those who thwart one, many, unfortunately, take it out on those who are not powerful enough or are unable to respond in kind.

     While we Silver Elves have also accepted the idea that accidents happen, just as we embrace the notion that magic happens, we do also think that we are soulfully connected to the Universe and that often accidents happen for a reason. We don’t blame a rock for dropping on us, but we are of a mind that its doing so is part of our fate and karma and the movement of the Universe overall and our place within it. In that sense, we take responsibility for the rock dropping on us. Our magic ultimately made it happen. Our fate drew the rock to us. 

     For, in our view, the Divine Magic lives in all of life and everything moves us to our eventual fulfillment and development as individual spirits. There is a certain amount of faith in that point of view. A faith that can sorely tested at times. But all this is to say that our actions/magics matter and we are ultimately responsible for all that we do. 

     Do rocks have souls? Maybe not, but they do experience vibrations, which is the beginning. However, we don’t think they feel much, but spirit still acts through them. And of our kindred the trees, we elfae have no doubt that they sense us, and in turn we certainly have affectionate and appreciative feelings for them. Surely, they feel our love as well.

Many people ask us which Silver Elves books to begin reading first and so we say, which ever sounds right to you, follow your elven intuition, as there is really no right order! But if you would like a suggestion, you may wish to begin with one or more of these four books:
1. Through The Mists Of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven
This is our most popular book and one we highly recommend reading by anyone interested in elves and the elven way.
2. The Elven Way:The Magical Path of the Shining Ones This is a companion book to Through the Mists of Faerie, but may be read in any order. It is also a very popular book and a good one to start with.
3. The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie
4. The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves

If you have questions about the Elven Way and being an elf, then you may also wish to read The Magical Realms of Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path. If you are curious about elves and want to learn more about modern elves, then you will surely find The Magical Realms of Elfin to contain many of your questions answered and it will be a great comfort and help in finding your way home to the magical realms of Elfin.

When people first begin to see us, it is usually out of the corner of their eyes or under the influence of some intoxicant. But the deeper they move into Elfin, the more they realize that the people they’ve always dismissed as eccentric or weird and sometimes those they’ve passed by without noticing because they’ve seemed so very plain have all the time been in actuality the fair folk, disguised by society’s determination to deny we could even exist.

For listening to the wisdom of the trees . . . .

An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script by The Silver Elves. “An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid can be used as an oracle. Perhaps, that is its chief purpose. That is up to you, really. For our own part in writing it, we learned a great deal about the tree families of the world and for us that was wonderful. We love trees. Not that we’ll remember it all or even most of it. But a passing acquaintance is nice. This book is a way, in a sense, of listening to the trees. It is not the same as being out in the trees and feeling their radiant and wondrous presence, nor ingesting some of the herbs that plants and trees use to enlighten us. However, not all of us, in the modern world, can be among the trees regularly or as much as we would like and this tome is, in that sense, designed to express their voice in the form of an oracle for those of us who are unable at present to spend a great deal of time among them. Although, in our hearts and imaginations, we are ever surrounded by the forest. And in that sense, this book is a forest, an elven woodland, an elvish glade, a living book of tree lore.”

Please go here to read more about this book and read a couple of excerpts from the 111 trees or tree groups with the Wizard Script, about the magic of the particular tree and what it means to draw it as an oracle.

“Every acorn holds the potential to become an oak tree that bears 
the potential to produce an entire forest from its seeds. 
Every elf contains the potential for creating an elven family
that can produce seeds that can turn into a forest of elfin being. 
Plant seeds everywhere you feel they might prosper.”

Are Elves Related to Angels?

April 18, 2022

    Blessings122

      What most folks would call angels, we Silver Elves call the Shining Ones, although they are really quite different in some important ways we will explain in this article. The Shining Ones are our elven ancestors who have evolved through time, advanced in their magic, and matured in their spiritual development and have progressed to more powerful and more subtle dimensions of being, where they are not only closer to the heart of Elfin but are in realms where their thoughts and intentions are more quickly realized and manifested and thus they are more magically powerful. They do not need, in the way that we do, the buffer that exists between our thoughts and magical realization. Their thoughts are clearer, more focused and much less inclined toward the inner conflict and debate that many of us in these more material seeming realms encounter. And the fulfillment of their wishes can be nearly instantaneous, whereas ours may take a while, but that is generally for our own good until we have more precise control over our own wills and thoughts. The Shining Ones are more on the line of Tolkien’s conception of elves in their most advanced stages than most of we elven currently manifesting upon the Earth are as yet able to be.

     Unlike the concept of angels, who are created ‘as is’ by their god and are ever unchanging, unless they fail to obey and therefore go ‘bad’, the Shining Ones were once rather like us. Once children, so to speak, and we, for our own part, will eventually evolve to the point of being much like they are now. Of course, by that point, it is quite possible that they will have evolved even further and will be deeper or closer to the source that is the Divine Magic from which all things arise and which connects all that is. Thus the Divine Magic may be defined, quite rightly, as love. Which is why, to the elves, love and magic are seen as being nearly synonymous.

     Elves don’t, for the most part, have the idea, which so many egocentric individuals have, that the Shining Ones are our personal Guardian Angels. Which is to say, we don’t believe there is one angel/Shining One who is assigned to follow us around our entire lives and guide us. There are Shining Ones who are related to us and by that we mean really related in this sense that they are our relatives, our ancestors, cousins and siblings, in a manner of speaking, and so forth and they do look out for us, as say our parents may look out for us when we are very young. But the more evolved we become, the older we get in a sense, the less they need to watch over us and the more responsibility we assume for our own lives and evolution.

     And as we proceed even further, we assume responsibility not only for our s’elves but for our others as well and in doing that we truly begin to step into the realms of the Shining Ones and become as they are. This is the way to Elfin evolution. The way to the evolution of our s’elves as individual soulful spirits and the way by which elves may attain the true royalty of our heritage. Would you be a Shining One? Take care of your others. Would you be an Elf Lord or Lady, Elfin Prince or Princess, Elvish King or Queen, look after all of your kindred, nurture, support and empower them. Would you be a great spirit? A great soul? An Elfae wizard, druid, wise one? Do all that you can to foster our kindred, each and everyone, and the elfae nature in everyone and live your life in such a way as to be an example of true elfinness on each and every day. This is the Elven Way. This is the path into the realms of the Angelic Shining Ones.

THE SHINING ONES:

The Elfin Spirits That Guide You According to

Your Birth Date and the Evolutionary Lessons They Offer

The Shining Ones don’t really guide our lives individually but rather offer us lessons in magic and evolution as individuals, which is to say they have many students but tailor their teaching to the needs, aspirations and visions of each one. They are teachers who offer instruction and the courses you are offered are based in part on the day you were born, the period of the month and the month you were born in. Or really, you were born on a certain day because you are assigned to a certain required course. If you wish to further you relationship with those High Elven spirits who have gone before us, this book will help show you the way. 

In reading this book, you will find that there is both a Shining One for each month, as well as a Shining One for each ten degrees of the zodiac, as well as a Shining One for each degree. Be sure and read all three of these that are associated with your or your loved ones particular birth date.

And Something for Diviners to check out!

The Silver Elves have several original Elven divination systems that have been created to be used
by Elfae and all other interested diviners, including The Elven Star Oracle,
Elven Geomancy, and our most recent oracle system:
STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS, CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

sticksandstonescover

 STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS,CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

by The Silver Elves

     This original oracle system uses the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame.

     You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

Have we Elven lost touch with our Faerie heritage?

April 14, 2022

Zardoa_stones

” . . . our heritage has always existed within us. And every time we elves see or read something that is truly elven or faerie, we recognize it instinctually. In fact, it is that phenomenon that lead many elfae to an awakening in the first place, for Tolkien and his works, as well as many other works of fiction and art, have stirred something deep within us and ignited that long awaited moment of realization. It was something that had been hidden within us by our own magic ages ago, knowing that the day (or night quite often) would come when we would rise again as the elfae peoples that we are and, in doing so, recreate our culture upon the Earth and among the Stars as we’ve ever been destined to do.”

     Well, how do we answer this question. On the surface, it seems rather obvious. We cannot help but have lost touch with our Faerie heritage in as much as our vibrant peoples and cultures were overrun by more aggressive peoples, the iron wielding peoples, which surely resulted in the tales of our aversion to iron. Few of us these days can say that we were raised to be ours’elves in an elvish culture. Some can, to be sure, but most of us, not so much. Most of us were raised among the Mannish cultures where you were supposed to live up to your parents expectations of you, become whatever they envisioned you to be and accepted whatever god or belief and lifestyle that they deemed appropriate. Of course, being elfae folk, such dark magic spells didn’t work on us or not for long anyway. And many of our parents being elfae thems’elves but not knowing it, often out of love tolerated our individual choices that, none the less, seemed weird to them. They warned us about the dangers of opposing the normals, but we did not listen. Or really, we listened, we just didn’t heed them.

And, we also have to account for the fact that much of the legends and lore about us, and certainly the tales of fiction that are usually based upon that lore, are mostly made up by others — and not elfae others but the others of Mankind. What if every story about you came from what other people experienced of you and were based upon their particular point of view, imagination and prejudices and you had no sense of your own s’elf at all. What would you be then if you believed them?

Over time, our people have been diminished in the minds of Mankind from being the bright and shining folk we were and are to wee little fairies with wings flitting about like insects with humanoid bodies and short little gnomes positioned on lawns. And even the dwarves who were once counted among the giants and dark elves have become portrayed as shortened beings as well.

Even the Celts, whom we Silver Elves relate to as being elfae beings, have been set among mere Men in the minds of the normal folk. This being so even though the Celts were related to the Egyptian Queen/Princess Scotia and related through marriage ties to the Scythian peoples who are generally deemed to be the source of the legends of Doaine Sidhe and the Tuatha de Danann (see De Vere The Dragon Legacy and Gardner The Realm of the Ring Lords). Of course, this is mostly because the Celts are a historical people, whereas the Doaine Sidhe and the Tuatha de Danann are seen as mythological peoples even though the Scythian folk, who were once regarded as being merely legendary folk, have been proven to be historical folk as well. Mankind insists on relegating we elfae to being mythological folk, despite our clear manifestation in the world. And they disregard all evidence of our actual being, such as us telling to their faces that we are elves and faeries.

We elfae have gone in the minds of Men from being super-natural and super-human folk, to being wee little beings, still of a somewhat supernatural albeit diminished nature, to being non-existent, which is, of course, mere wishful thinking upon the part of Men. And that is one wish that we elfae folk simply refuse to grant them.

So, it is no wonder that we have lost touch, to a certain degree, with our elfae heritage since most of us were forced to be raised among Men and the normal folk and what did come down to us as our heritage was often distorted and made us into cutesy beings that many of our kind hate. Well, we don’t hate the little flower faires and lawn gnomes and so forth, not at all. We quite love them, really. But most of us are rather disinclined to be considered cute, ours’elves.

On the other hand, our heritage has always existed within us. And every time we elves see or read something that is truly elven or faerie, we recognize it instinctually. In fact, it is that phenomenon that lead many elfae to an awakening in the first place, for Tolkien and his works, as well as many other works of fiction and art, have stirred something deep within us and ignited that long awaited moment of realization. It was something that had been hidden within us by our own magic ages ago, knowing that the day (or night quite often) would come when we would rise again as the elfae peoples that we are and, in doing so, recreate our culture upon the Earth and among the Stars as we’ve ever been destined to do.

And now for a word from our elven oracles. . . . . .

We hope you enjoy reading this excerpt from one of our newest The Silver Elves books. It is an excerpt of part of an oracle reading we did for the Elfae community (yes that is you dear Kindred and Friends), March 2022, from:  The Faerie Song Oracle: The Elven Way of Singing Down Magic of the Fae and here is the message it gives for us all:

“2.1. FLOWERS OF FAERIE, RAE DO.”

“The Flowers of Faerie are like Faerie Food. If you inhale the flowers of Faerie you will be transformed and, more than likely, you will have Faerie in your soul forever. In Hope Mirrlees’ novel Lud-in-the Mist, consuming the Flowers of Faerie made one wish to dance and sing and shout with joy and run off into the wilds of Faerie. Such happiness is quite understandable and acceptable among we elfae folk but to the normal people it seems as though one has gone insane for being so joyous. They will look askance at you and wonder whether you are all there or if you are, indeed, ‘off with the faeries’.”

“If you receive the Flowers of Faerie in response to a question posed to the oracle, then know that something will come into your life that will give you a bit of ecstatic joy. More than that, this oracle says you should experience your delight fully. You don’t need to hide it and you don’t need to be concerned about what other people may think. You are not one of them, and if you ever were, you are not of that world anymore. You are now a part of Faerie and shall ever after be. You are developing a new and greater understanding of your life, the world and your place in it. Once you really see and understand, you cannot go back. Isn’t that wonderful? Knowledge and experience master ignorance. You can’t unknow your new found understanding.”

The Elves of Lyndarys is an often humorous novel about a young man’s struggle to mature and develop himself, his magic and his identity as he encounters and explores the modern pagan and otherkin communities and happens to encounter real elves, slowly coming to realize as he does so that he may not be a man at all but one of the elven. He is confronted through his journey not only by his own incredulity about his encounters and his inner conflict with what he has been taught to believe is reality and his actual experience but also by his personal prejudices and false assumptions. He comes to discover not only that the magic of Faerie is real but further that the Elven Way, as presented by his mentors, offers him a means of traveling the misty paths to magical and mystical enlightenment.
