Why don’t all elfae know from very earliest life that they are elves, faeries or other fae beings?

“. . . .all of us elfae do remember who we are. However, we remember as spirits, in our Collective Unconscious, which is how we come to gravitate toward things elvish and fae and otherkin in the first place. We may not recognize our people consciously but we do recognize them instinctually.”

     One might think, and some apparently do, that we would know that we are elves or faeries or whatever we might be from our very earliest life. But, it is important to remember that being elven or faerie, as the world defines it, is merely an identity that most closely fits who we truly are. And what we are is pure spirit manifesting in our own unique and individual ways. The name elf or faerie is simply a means of indicating those tales, stories and peoples known by the world whose spirit most inspires us and, therefore, to which we most closely identify.

     We have also been known as Star Children, Space Gypsies, Flower Children and numerous other appellations. These appellations don’t change who we are but merely indicate the nature of our being. We may not remember a particular designation for us when we are quite young because, mostly, we don’t really remember anything of that sort unless we have achieved continuity of consciousness as spirits. This is to say that we would have, as adepts, developed the facility for remembering our previous incarnations through the Between state (see our book Beyond Death: The Elfin Book of the Dead. Ascending towards the Faerie Realms through Progressive Incarnations) and into our new life. Which is a very high state, indeed, which some might claim but very few have actually achieved. We Silver Elves, for instance, have a hard time remembering what we did last week or even yesterday let alone our previous lives, although we do have some sense of those lives, but that is another matter involving a different magical technique.

     At the same time, all of us elfae do remember who we are. However, we remember as spirits, in our Collective Unconscious, which is how we come to gravitate toward things elvish and fae and otherkin in the first place. We may not recognize our people consciously but we do recognize them instinctually. This, in fact, may be, in part, like deja vu. Our sense of being other is merely an inner recognition of those things and peoples that are like us, that we have known previously, which often manifests as an inner feeling that we wish to be like them or that we are like unto them.

     When we elfae folk do awaken, which is to say become conscious of the fact that we are elves or faeries, etc. or ascribe the title of elves or fae and so forth to ours’elves, there is often a sense that inwardly we always knew this was the case and we were ever awaiting that moment of awakening to occur. This is an event when what was primarily unconscious becomes conscious in a profound way and is usually highlighted by a profound sense of meaning, purpose and synchronicity.

     However, it should also be noted that most elfae folk always knew that they were elfae even when they had not as yet assigned the names of elf, faerie or some kind of otherkin to thems’elves. This is to say that they always were aware of being somehow different from the normal folk around them or felt out of synch with modern times, like they should be living or should be dwelling in another time, culture or world. The realization of being elfae merely makes the world that we really belong to clearer to us.

     Plus, it is important to realize that we are elvish spirits manifesting in humanoid form in the first place. Which means that we don’t always incarnate into the same genetic line that our previous body was a part of. In our previous incarnation, we may have been from a different worldly culture, with a different language and different stories about and names for we who are elfae and for our culture. Thus, remembering what we were called in another language would be problematic in our new one. Our new parents would most likely just think we were babbling babies and not realize we were trying to convey something really important to them.

     Which brings us to the fact that, being elfae folk, we probably start out by speaking some dialect of elvish or fairy talk in the first place. This also would just seem to our parents and other adults as though we were ‘speaking in tongues,’ in a sense, or stringing together meaningless sounds as happens in glossolalia. And like all children as we grow and learn the language of our new parents and society, we tend to forget or sublimate our true identities and our ancient languages, sometimes out of necessity, substituting the language commonly used by those around us at the time.

     So, why don’t we elfae remember who are from our very earliest lives? We do, actually, but for most of us just not consciously but rather in feeling and intuitively knowing we are unique and other. But our nature can be understood by observing our attractions and the nature of our spirit by those with elf sight and a true understanding, which is to say a wider understanding, of the nature of the world.

Through 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.” —Excerpt from page 26 of Through The Mists of Faerie by The Silver Elves.

And to learn more about preparing for the Between states and developing continuity of consciousness, we suggest reading Beyond Death:

BeyondDeathCoverweb
 BEYOND DEATH: The Elfin Book of the Dead

“WHEN SOMEONE PASSES FROM THEIR BODY, THE ELVES GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE GREAT FOREST TO ANEW LIFE IN FAERIE.”. . . . . . .This book is found here for purchase on Amazon USA and here on Amazon UK.

          BEYOND DEATH  by The Silver Elves is a guide for those who are dealing with the recently deceased or dying, as well as for anyone who would like to begin consciously preparing for their own demise. There are two parts to Beyond Death— the first part explores the theoretical aspects concerning death and the Between worlds from an elven perspective, and the second part of this book has practical admonitions and spells based on the Elven Star (7 pointed acute hexagram) that can help a person who is in the process of transitioning from one incarnation to another.

  

And for further reading on your elven, faerie, otherkin tribe:

ELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kinand  FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guidelftribese for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. Please click on the titles listed above to go to the pages on this blog that are dedicated to each book, where you can read more about them, view excerpts of sample magical narratives and also the table of contents from both books. Elf Tribescontains 150+ narratives of elven tribes, and Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes contains another 150+ narratives of faerie and otherkin tribes. Be sure and click on the title links and read a few of these magical narratives. Perhaps, you otherkinstar_coverwill find your people as you read through these two books, or kindred quite like them. At any rate, you can always do the survey yours’elf, or do it again if you feel you have come to a greater understanding of yours’elf and our peoples in the meantime (or gentle-time as we elves often say).

 

 

 

Another Bit of Fun for Elfae!
What is Your Magic Wielder Title?

This is a game to play using random numbers that you choose to find your type of magic making. To play, choose 3 random numbers, the first between 1 and 13, the second between 1 and 19, and the third between 1 and 17. Then use the 3 numbers to find in the lists below: your kin type, elemental association, and style of magic. Read these together and this is your magic wielder title. For instance, if you had picked number 1 for all three random numbers, you would be an Elfin Moon Enchanter! Whatever you choose, “Congratulations!” 

And you can discover much more in depth about your magical nature as you make your way through the Elven Tree of Life Eternal on our Silver Elves website here: https://silverelves.angelfire.com/elftree.html

Are elves a type of faerie?

August 7, 2021

22228388_1928941943789076_2957759525721480000_n
“. . . while elves are not faeries nor are faeries elves, we are both Fae and of the Faerie Realm (remember that the realm of Elfin is within the larger Faerie Realm). In that way, the Fae, which we might define as a being of Faerie, Faerie-land, or the Faerie Realm, is a higher and more encompassing category of being. . . “

Note: We give thanks for the collage above that was made for us from our photo by our elfae sister Arianna Ferrara Gennari and elven grandson Nickolay Learmonth.

     Some people seem to think that elves are a type of faerie or that the faeries are a type of elves, although in our Silver Elves experience of our elfin and faerie kin, elves are generally disinclined to wish to be classified as faeries and faeries are the same way in reverse. It is not that we don’t like each other. Most often we elves are very fond of faeries, and the faeries that we Silver Elves know and have known are quite fond of us as well. It is just that we don’t wish to be confused with each other and are quite attached to our own sense of s’elf and our particular sub-culture of greater Faerie or Elfin culture overall.

     From our Silver Elves’ point of view, while elves are not faeries nor are faeries elves, we are both Fae and of the Faerie Realm (remember that the realm of Elfin is within the larger Faerie Realm). In that way, Fae, which we might define as a being of Faerie, Faerie-land, or the Faerie Realm, is a higher and more encompassing category of being, much in the way that the whales are mammals and humans are also mammals but whales are not humans or vice versa. Or we could look it at it like the fact that Asians are Human and Caucasians are Human but Asians are not Caucasians or Caucasians Asian except for the fact that there is mixing of the ‘racial’ types, which we Fae folk also have. And this is perhaps a better analogy because humans can’t breed with whales, although Asians and Caucasians can certainly interbreed and so can we Fae, even though our interbreeding is more of a spiritual rather than genetic type. Our own daughter told us when she was four years old that she was a Faerie Elf. Thus, while elves are not faeries, nor faeries elves, faerie elves or elven faeries are surely both.

     And it is a simple fact that we Silver Elves are not only friends with faeries, gnomes and all sorts of Fae kind and have lived together with some of them as well, we are also genetically related to faerie elves, faeries, pixies and descendants of the ancient Sidhe and other sorts of fae kind as well.

     To add to the potential confusion, there is the fact that we Silver Elves, at least, and other elfae (another designation for fae) that we know, consider other beings that are not human or not even mammals to be elvish as well. There are elven hounds and elven trees and elven birds and faerie cats and we Silver Elves even view the dragonflies, butterflies and moths as being faerie creatures as well. This idea of elfin dogs and faerie cats can be found in the ancient faerie lore as well.

     Among normal humanity, such an idea that their kind might also extend to insects and birds and so forth would be unthinkable. And even though there is good scientific evidence that they are related through a common ancestor to chimpanzees and share 95 to 98% if their DNA, many of them are not all that happy about that idea either. Whereas, we elfae sorts have no problem with the idea that we are related to the Great Apes. In fact, most of us elfae folk would much rather be genetically associated with apes than with most of the normal folk of Mankind who for all their proclamations of being human seem quite animalistic to us. Plus, and this is a bit of an aside, if you follow the elfae and faerie lore that can be found in The Realm of the Ring Lords by Laurence Gardner (as well as other places), we are mythological linked to the Annunaki who are sometimes credited with being the ones who tampered with the genes of the ape people and made them more human so they would serve as workers for us. Sounds a bit Unseelie to us, but then much of mythology is.

     Our point is, however, that elves are not faeries (except for faerie elves) and faeries are not elves. We elves are portrayed as having pointed ears and faeries have their wings and we suppose faerie elves might have both. And we elves are generally a bit more serious than faeries often are, although we know that faeries frequently use the common misperception that the normal folk have of them as being flighty or frivolous as a glamour to fool the normals and thus move more easily through the normal world. And this is not to say that all elves are ever serious by nature or that faeries are never intent upon achieving their aims, but there just is a general tendency among us to have slightly different personalities in that regard. 

     But mostly it is simply a matter of the fact that we elves like being thought of and called elves, because we love being elves so much and faeries love manifesting in their faerie form because they love being faeries and that is a good enough reason as far as we are both concerned to distinguish between us.

What An Elf Would Do, Too: Book Two of a Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk

July 25, 2021
What An Elf Would Do, Too:
Book Two of a Magical Guide to the
Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk

This book is found here for purchase on Amazon USA
and here for purchase on Amazon UK

. . . a book to help elfae feel more at ease in the normal world!

We Silver Elves are happy to announce our newest book publication! WHAT AN ELF WOULD DO, TOO: Book Two of a Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk is our second in a series of elfin manners books, the first one being What an Elf Would Do: A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk. You do not need to read the first volume before reading this one, although you would surely enjoy doing so as it is a wry, sly, often tongue in cheek view of how elves see and interact with the world of the Normal folk as well as with Otherkind of all sorts. This second volume continues to give and expand suggestions for elven etiquette in many of the same life situations as discussed in the first book, but this volume two also includes some modern social situations that were not really as prevalent at the time we published the first book. For instance, What An Elf Would Do, Too, includes an entire chapter on elven social skills in interacting successfully in social media. Also, in the last five years, mainly due to social media, the elven and otherkin communities have greatly expanded and have begun to awaken more and understand their unique and diverse kin types. This book two in the series further explores many situations that elven and faerie folk may find as they encounter a variety of elves and fae folk. This book includes chapters titled: Seven Basic Laws (Guidelines) of Elven Hospitality, Etiquette and Manners; Elven Social Skills in Social Media; Moving About in the Normal World; In Personal Life; Interacting with other Elves, Fae and Otherkin; More on Elven Social Manners; Dealing with Traditions and Taboos of the Fae; and Etiquette in Elven Magic.

     What An Elf Would Do, Too begins with a discussion of each of the Seven Basic Laws (Guidelines) of Elven Hospitality, Etiquette and Manners. This gives the elfae (a word we Silver Elves coined that combines elf and fae and so includes elves and all other folk of the Faerie realm) an etiquette philosophy to follow that can be applied to about any situation in life that we encounter. ” . . . while we call them laws, really, they are more like guidelines. The only real laws in our realms of Faerie and Elfin are the laws of Nature, the Universe and the laws that rule our individual hearts and souls. Calling them laws merely puts emphasis on the significance of these principles by which we may find some reference for the particular situations and circumstances that we may encounter in relation to others and how we may choose to interact with them. However, it is always up to the individual elfae to decide how much or how little energy they wish to invest in any situation or relationship and how they may wish to interact at a particular time.”

     Most of the discussions in this book come from people in our elfae community asking us questions about what they could do as they have encountered certain situations. Some of these questions of which there are 84 all total that we cover in this book are: 
What does an elf do if they are on social media and still feel lonely for their kindred?
How do you deal with elfae groups in social media as an administrator?
What does an elf do if they get put in ‘Facebook Jail’?
How do you deal with people who make fun of you when you are out in the world dressed as and expressing your elfae or otherkin s’elf?
What do we do if someone gives us the Evil Eye?
How do we deal with people who seek to attach themselves to us but come on way too strong?
Do elves ever ghost anyone?
What does an elf do when they feel depressed but don’t know whether they should express it or not?
What does an elf do if they have a job that they hate?
What do we do with people who refuse to eat our food because it is Faerie food?
How do we deal with the fact that individuals who we’ve nurtured and been kind to, then thanklessly desert us and go on their way?
What does an elf do if they meet someone who knows they are an elf but derives their sense of s’elf totally from Tolkien’s writings?
How does a dark elf deal with those who act like he or she is an Unseelie fae?
How do we elves deal with faeries who accuse us of thinking elves are better than faeries?
How do we interact with fae with different political beliefs from our own?
How does one address elven royalty? 
How do we deal with individuals who say they are High Fae and think they are superior to others?
Is it considered poor manners to tell someone what their kin type is?
What is our policy concerning those who seek to impose their self-assumed authority over us?
How do you rear a child to be elfin or faerie and respectfully deal with others in the world?
How do we deal with people who criticize our child rearing?
How do we deal with people who think we elfae steal children?
How do we deal with people who have gender-based customs?
How do we deal with those who seek to enforce their customs in our realms?
Is it rude (or dangerous) to step into a Faerie Ring?
Is it ok to do divination, energy work, spells, etc. on people without their permission?

     What An Elf Would Do, Too is designed to help the elfin everywhere to move through the often mysterious cultures of mankind with confidence and ease and to enjoy interacting in the Fae and Otherkin communities as well. You will find as you read along in this book that often we share what we Silver Elves have done in similar situations as being discussed, all to give at least our own experiences as examples of ways to deal with the world in what we have found to be both effective in our own life and as courteous as possible. And if you have experiences that lead you to understand other approaches that work for you, please do find us on Facebook or email us and share with us your experiences with elven etiquette and manners.

How Do We Elves Relate to the Seasonal Courts of Faerie?

June 26, 2021

  “. . . the idea of seasonal courts of Faerie are associated with the idea of the Holly King and the Oak King who are said to rule over Winter and Summer, respectively, in various folklore and myths. . . . it occurs to us that since these are seasonal courts and since when it is Winter in the North Hemisphere then it is Summer in the Southern regions, that the seasonal courts are not actually in conflict with each other but are rather the same, in their way, as Trooping Faeries. . . “

BlogHomeannerElf2jpg

Usually, the idea of seasonal courts of Faerie are associated with the idea of the Holly King and the Oak King who are said to rule over Winter and Summer, respectively, in various folklore and myths. There is said to be a continual battle between them as each seeks to gain power over the Earth during the year. And this, of course, reflects the cycles of the seasons and are accordingly associated with the planting of crops, their growth and their eventual harvest.

     At Midsummer the Oak King is at the peak of his power but yields to the Holly King when the Autumn equinox occurs with the beginning of Fall but he then slowly starts to lose his power when Midwinter arrives and the Oak King is reborn. Then the Oak King begins to ascend again toward his great power at the Spring equinox. This idea as it is expressed in terms of we Faerie folk can be found as a theme in many modern novels.

     While this idea is, as we noted, mostly represented as a conflict between the Winter and Summer Courts of the Fae, this idea is sometimes extended to there being four seasonal courts. Not just Winter and Summer but also Autumn and Spring. You can find this in the Fairy Tarot Cards by Radleigh Valentine, with illustrations by Howard David Johnson, in which the Spring Court represents Wands, the Summer would be Cups, the Winter are the Swords, and Autumn as the time of Harvest to be the Pentacles or Coins.

     Interestingly to we Silver Elves, there is also a regular playing card deck by Bicycle who are famous for their playing cards, that is called The Fae, but it is divided into Seelie and Unseelie Courts rather than Summer and Winter Courts, with the Seelie being the Hearts and Diamonds and the Unseelie being the Spades and Clubs. Traditionally, the Summer Court would represent the Seelie and the Winter Court the Unseelie.

     Now, this whole idea of seasonal courts of Faerie is not one to which we Silver Elves personally subscribe. However, since we are not at all fond of cold, although we think snow can be quite lovely to look upon from a window in a cozy room with a fire going, and since we dwell in Hawaii, it would be fair to say that we would be of the Summer Court or even better the Spring Court, because we are not all that fond of the heat and humidity either. Although Hawaii can get cold for a couple of weeks in the year getting down to 70 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, burr! And it can get hot for a while in the summer (rise from its moderate climate weather to as high as about 90 degrees Fahrenheit), unless you are outside walking along the beach catching the balmy sea breezes or swimming in the ocean.

     However, it occurs to us that since these are seasonal courts and since when it is Winter in the North Hemisphere then it is Summer in the Southern regions, that the seasonal courts are not actually in conflict with each other but are rather the same, in their way, as Trooping Faeries. We have people who own apartments or condos in Hawaii who only come to stay here in the Winter when it is cold elsewhere. Here these individuals are referred as Snow Birds. Perhaps, the Seasonal Courts of Faerie are like that. Not fighting each other for supremacy but ever traveling to stay in the climate and weather conditions they love. Going from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern and back again regularly. Sort of like modern home swapping as some people do or a Faerie Air B&B.

     The whole idea that we need to be in perpetual conflict with each other is an expression of the dominator culture of Man that believes that war is inevitable and that Survival of the Fittest means the strong dominate or eliminate the weak. We elfae folk are of an older culture, however, that thrived and still thrives on a partnership model (see Sacred Pleasureby Riane Eisler for more on the dominator vs. partnership cultures). We are and were the Golden Race that the Greek poet Hesiod wrote about who lived in peace and prosperity until “lesser races” brought their god of war and dominion over our world. Yet, we still go on, often moving like the Faerie Courts to find a more conducive place to be or failing that, create our Elfin paradise upon Earth once again.

Does Being Elven or Otherkin Make it Harder to Live in Human Bodies?  

June 3, 2021

Silver Flame of The Silver Elves

“Often for elves and faeries, we just miss our elf ears and our wings. Our differences with human incarnation are generally cultural rather than physical. . . . normal culture overall just seems peculiar, non-sensical and unnecessarily competitive and aggressive to us. We feel like aliens in their culture and, truly, we are. . . But for those who are born into humanoid bodies but are a dragon in their spirits, or some other non-humanoid form, the difficulties can be greater. There is a continuing sense of body dysmorphia and their human body always seems odd to them.”

tiny_green_7star

     Does the fact that we are elfae (a word we Silver Elves use to mean elves and other magical beings of the Faerie Realm) and otherkin spirits incarnated into humanoid bodies make it harder for us, than say, for men and women? Well, yes and no, as is so often the case with we elfin folk. Naturally, having to incarnate into material bodies is just harder overall for nearly everyone. If we, as spirits, were living fully in our body of light, it would surely be easier for us as spirits. The material world is slow and ponderous and, by its nature, somewhat difficult due to its propensity to create friction between objects. Which is not even to mention how some folks just go around making things more difficult for nearly everyone when it could all be so much easier. But even without their determined folly, this is still a somewhat difficult world to live in at times.

     However, living in this material world does have its advantages. Perhaps, the most significant is that it allows us the opportunity to develop our other bodies: our astral bodies, our mental bodies, our bodies of light and pure energy and what we might call our psychological bodies, as well, as a mode of developing consciousness. Once we have fully built, you might say, all these bodies, we will be able to live in a material world that isn’t quite so material anymore, for them our consciousness will more fully appreciate the energetic world that underlies material form and we shall live, in a sense, as though we are existing in a lucid dream.

     Of course, this sense of disassociation from one’s body can vary from elf to elf, or from elf to faerie, or more particularly from elves to those who are dragons, werewolves, puccas, or some other sort of fae whose natural body isn’t humanoid in the first place. We elves are generally represented as being humanoid beings, so beyond the normal difficulties having to do with material existence, we do pretty well. We often miss our elf ears, and frequently feel rather estranged from the cultures we are raised within but otherwise we’re okay with human bodies. At least, those of us who are normally in humanoid bodies anyway. Since from an elvish point of view a tree could be an elf, or a bird might be an elf, or a hound might be an elf, or dragonflies, butterflies, moths and so forth are nearly all faeries, then it is possible that an elf or faerie could be born into a human body when they are used to living in a bird body and so on. That would make it more difficult.

     Often for elves and faeries, we just miss our elf ears and our wings. Our differences with human incarnation are generally cultural rather than physical. Sometimes the language we are raised using just seems strange to us. It is different than our ancient language and perhaps even different than the language we spoke in our last incarnation. And normal culture overall just seems peculiar, non-sensical and unnecessarily competitive and aggressive to us. We feel like aliens in their culture and, truly, we are.

     However, for those who are born into humanoid bodies but are a dragon in their spirits, or some other non-humanoid form, the difficulties can be greater. There is a continuing sense of body dysmorphia and their human body always seems odd to them. It can make them feel like they are going mad and if they tell anyone, other than adept elfae about it, they will think so, too. For these otherkin folk, getting used to the humanoid form can be much more difficult. And stress can have ill effects upon that body, their inner discontent sometimes displaying itself as disease or just a pervading sense of unhappiness and feelings of being out of place.

     One of the key aspects of elfae character is an ability to adapt to changing circumstances. This is not to say we are always happy about what is going on nor that we never experience stress, but rather that we ever seek to turn every situation to our advantage as best and as soon as we can. We do try to look for the bright side of every situation and use our magic to enhance its powers and effects upon us and our surroundings. But then again, we don’t usually face the sort of dilemma that say fauns and dragons face in feeling not only out of place in the world but not even in the right body.

     Still, the solution for all of us who are traversing the material realms is to do the best with what we have been given so we may master our various bodies that exist and interact with the different planes, levels and dimensions of energetic being until we obtain true adeptship and may manifest in any body we so choose. We would say, we can’t wait but, alas, we have no choice but to do so. Our only real choice is to increase our powers and abilities and this will give us the power to be who we truly are, which is ever the true goal and path of the Elven Way, anyway.

“Faerie magic is hedge magic. It’s garden magic, too. It’s magic of the thickets and the misty morning dew. It springs up with the wild flowers and moss in forest vales and ivy climbing up the walls and ferns so light and frail. It’s found where morning coffee brews and teas in afternoon, and if it hasn’t found you yet it surely will so soon.”

Elfin Witches’ Knotwork: How to Make a Faerie Lay

May 15, 2021

61uYm9ckOtSElfin Witches’ Knotwork:
How to Make a Faerie Lay

You may purchase this book on all international Amazon websites including:

Here on US Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B094J4RR3Q

And here on UK Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B094J4RR3Q

         ELFIN WITCHES’ KNOTWORK: How to Make a Faerie Lay will show you how and why we Silver Elves have made our own ‘Faerie Lay’ for elfin knot magic and the accompanying magical elfin spells and chants to go with it, so that you will be able to make and use your own for your magic as well. Knotwork or using knots when casting spells is one of the most ancient of magics and is associated with weaving magic, thread magic, rope magic and sewing and knot tying magics in all their various forms and permutations. Weaving, as a practice, is said to have been invented around 6000 B.C.E. and involves the making of clothes, rugs and much else. In other words, weaving involves our day-to-day lives as well as our aspirations toward civilization. In some ways, we might say that weaving is one of the first steps toward civilization, which is also to say s’elf actualized evolution.

     Part One of ELFIN WITCHES’ KNOTWORK will give you detailed instructions along with photographs on making your own Faerie Lay, as well as how to purify and charge your Faerie Lay. We also discuss how we Silver Elves came to make our own Faerie Lay; variations of using beads as knots of magic power found in traditions of world religions and cultures; reclaiming this ancient elfin string magic and thus passing on our very own magical culture; and deciding how you will use your own Faerie Lay in your magic before you design it.  

     In Part Two, you will first find a short introduction that explains how to use the spells given in this section relating to using your Faerie Lay to raise the power of your Chakras. In the chapter that follows the introduction, each of the seven Chakras in the body are explained from an elven perspective and a magical spell relating to each of the seven Chakras is given, which also correlates to each of the seven sections of the Faerie Lay. Each of the seven spells are comprised of seven short chants, so 49 chants in all or one for each knot in your Faerie Lay. These spells and chants are in English as well as in our magical elven language Arvyndase or Silverspeech, and you may use either of these languages. These spells are for s’elf development as related to each of the seven Chakras and you may use these spells systematically as you go through the knots on your Faerie Lay. You will also find in Part Two several chapters exploring variant meanings of the word knot (including nodes as a variation of knot, the knot and nautical, elf knots, tree knots, Gordian knot, the Druid’s Cord, and the Celtic Knot) and knot magic (including knot magic and gender roles, and elven knot magic). Also the basics of magic and magical practices in general are explored in detail in several chapters.

      For most elves, the elven star is the symbol of the elven people and the ancient future that is again awakening. In Part Three we first take a look at the Elven Star history of adoption in modern times by the Elf Queen’s Daughters, along with its meanings and associations with the Seven Rays of Manifestation and color magic. We explore how to use the Elven Star for knot magic and go through the Elven Star Silver Elves Meditation (star point by star point) with spells and chants for your Faerie Lay. The remaining chapters in this section discuss nets and knot magic, exploring nets used in miscellaneous magic as well as in religious association and with the faerie folk. Also we explore the knot magic of the bag people and the Fir Bolg of ancient Ireland; lace and the knot magic of the ancient elfae people including the Tuatha De Danaan and the Daione Sidhe, hair nets and knot magic; the mystery of veils as knot magic; and webs as they relate to knot magic.

      And in Part Four of Elfin Witches’ Knotwork, we first look in the introduction at the primary powers in life and the universe. Haven’t you always wondered what they are? And following this discussion, we Silver Elves share the meaning and use of our own formulated Seven Powers to increase as individuals and develop along the path of the Elven Way. These powers are: The Power of Healing, The Power of Animal Magnetism, Will Power, The Power of Empathy, The Power of the Word, The Power of Understanding, and The Power of Mastery. Along with explaining what it means to have these powers in your life and how to obtain each of these powers, we give you chants and spells to use in your Faerie Lay magic related to each of these seven powers. Some of the other topics discussed in this part are connotations of the word ‘Lay’ relating to the Faerie Lay magic: The Witches Garland, the Faerie Lei and the Faerie Lay, The Lay of the Land, Faerie Roads and Lei Lines, and Song Lines.

“When you see that all is magic and all of life a spell,
You soon perceive the threads that bind to heaven or to hell,
But if you are enchanting then magic thou can weave,

And cut the knotted cords of fate and suffering relieve,
And swaying, swirling, dancing quick with elfin fingers deft,
You find that starlight’s destiny is that which is now left, 

And from that comes a tapestry of wonder and delight,
To fill our days with beauty while our love we share at night.”
—The Silver Elves

What do the Elves Say is the Difference Between a Spirit Family and a Soul Family, and What is an Elven Family?

April 26, 2021

BlogHomeannerElf2jpg     

“. . . . a spirit family doesn’t necessarily create a soul family. . . .
from our Silver Elves point of view, having a spirit family
that is also one’s soul family is the very best situation.
For such a soulful spirit family, we would call an Elven Family.”

We are all aware of the idea of one’s blood family, which today might better be expressed as one’s genetic family or those who most closely share one’s particular sequencing of DNA. For, in a sense, if you look at DNA, we are all family. It is just that some people have sequencing that is closer to ours and others varied from ours, but we all essentially share the same DNA. Even if you look at chimpanzees, their DNA is about 99% similar to human DNA. We may not be close to all the animals on Earth but we are related.

     The poet Robert Frost said, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” Yet, despite that families do not always get along with each other. In fact, the idea of dysfunctional families is so common that the very term dysfunctional family is a part of common parlance. Families by blood may share DNA arrangement, but they do not necessarily share much else. Since humanity, as a whole, shares DNA, it can be said that wars are really blood family conflicts.

     We elves, however, also have the concept of soul families and spirit families, which is a grouping of those who may or may not closely share one’s genome sequencing arrangement. The soul, as it is used by most individuals, is what we Silver Elves would call the spirit. We don’t actually see the soul as an independent entity, like the idea of an immortal soul, but rather as a function of the immortal spirit. The soul denotes our connection, particularly through our feelings to other beings. In that way, the soul function is rather like our sight and our hearing. We can see other people. We can hear other people. But we can also feel other people, both in a tactile sense but also in an inner feeling and intuitive sense. This is often signified by a feeling of being simpatico, which may indicate a person that one finds to be likable and with whom one gets along easily and with whom one shares attributes or interests and is immediately compatible in a feeling way.

     Simpatico is derived from the Greek noun sympatheia, which means “sympathy,” and is a loan word that came into the English language from both Italian and Spanish. To be simpatico is to have a mutual feeling of sympathy and a soul family are those who naturally feel good about each other and feel comfortable in each other’s presence.

     We may also point out that the word ‘Duende’ that is used in the folklore of Spain and Portugal and thus by extension Latin America and the Philippines, describes a supernatural being or spirit resembling a pixie or imp or some other elfae being. One of the ‘little people’ as we tend to be called. But note that duende is derived from the term ‘duen de casa,’ which means ‘master of the house’ and this would tend to link it to brownies or other house fae/spirits and teraphim. 

     But duende also signifies a heightened state of emotional or feeling expression that is genuine and authentic, often associated with flamenco or other performance arts. We elfae feel things deeply and truly and our soul family naturally shares those feelings with us. We are the soul of the house, the soul of the family. We are drawn together naturally for our inner beings are connected and similar in a sort of astral genome sequencing.

     A spirit family, however, is somewhat different. Individuals in a spirit family share the same purpose and goals. They may or may not be sympatico with each other, but they are allied for a purpose and drawn together to achieve their common vision. This can be seen in some religious groups, especially cults, but also in political movements. And often, but not always, this shared vision leads to a sort of sympatico among the participants. They feel special together, they are the enlightened, illuminated, the elect, the ‘ones’, etc. One can also find this in military groups, especially among ‘elite’ units, where fighting together and facing danger in common creates a sort of ‘fellow feeling’ among them.

     However, a spirit family doesn’t necessarily create a soul family. Often in cults the individuals involved are jockeying with each other to rise in the hierarchy of the group, which means get closer and closer to the charismatic leader. Such a situation creates infighting and ill feelings that naturally work against soul family connection. We Silver Elves have lived with others with whom we shared a common purpose but who were not necessarily sympatico even though there was not a cult leader we were following, but rather sharing the Elven Path together for a period of time. And we’ve had elf friends who did not share our commitment to awakening elfae and the awareness of Elfin being on the Earth, with whom, none-the-less, we were and are quite soul aligned.

    However, it should be clear that, at least from our Silver Elves point of view, that having a spirit family that is also one’s soul family is the very best situation. For such a soulful spirit family, we would call an Elven Family.

Kyela,
The Silver Elves

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.

And please, when you come to our website please enjoy reading sample pages and reader’s reviews of all our 45+ books (published prior to March 2019) on magic and enchantment, elven lifestyle, elven poetry, elven short stories, an elven novel, on elven philosophy and the Elven Way at: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfbooks.html

“The Way of the Elves begins in the heart,
the wonder of magic is its very start,
the desire for Faerie awakens it, too,
and then for bright Elfin and all that is true,
for family and friends who are loyal and care,
and when you most need them will always be there
and all that we have we always will share
for our heart bids us do so and then we are there.”
— The Silver Elves

Volume two titled The Elves Say and this volume three titled The Elves Believe contain quotes from our latest Silver Elves books published since the time of the first volume (now 57 published to date), the daily quotes we publish on Facebook, with the largest majority of the quotes in these two books being shared and published for the first time. We hope you enjoy reading all of these quotes in The Elves Believe and sharing them with others. And if perhaps you take this book with you on a personal journey of your own, we wish you elven blessings and may your way be always illuminated by the Shining Ones.

A few elf quotes from inside THE ELVES BELIEVE:

“The Elves believe that enchantment is a sixth dimensional puzzle, to solve it you must have an open heart, an open mind, and a spirit a glow with the light of the elven stars.”

“The Elves say: Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should, just because you should, doesn’t mean you can, but if you can find what you should, you should do what you can.” 

“Elven Home is down Faerie Lane and just around the corner from Open Minded Avenue.”

“The history of the Elven is etched in starlight in the sanctuary of our elfin souls.”

“We elves don’t have Spelling Bees but Spelling Sees, in which we see who is most proficient at casting spells.” 

“When you enter Elfin, you’ll know it right away, 
for the light around you shimmers and smiling folk do say, 
‘You’re here at last, we’re very glad and all will be okay, 
for lucky stars do shine here all through the night and day.”

“You can search or you can wait;
Faerie may come early or it may just come late,
but when it comes you’ll certain see,
it arrives at the time that was ever meant to be.” 

“The mist upon the morning, the dew upon the grass, are set there to remind us that Faerie did just pass.” 

“Mountains may rise and stars may fall but Elfin endures through the dance of it all.”

“Elfin is eternal
It lives within our dreams
Is nurtured by our wishes
And gives to us the means
To make it real in all we say
And every act we do
And when we feel it deep within
Our Elfin doth come true.”

The Sixth and Seventh Stages of Awakening upon The Elven Way: Acclimation and Actualization

March 23, 2021
“In the stage of Acclimation: We now live in Elfin as a part of Faerie even while we still travel the worlds of Men. For this is our quest. This is our mission. This is our duty sworn voluntarily. This is the adventure we imagined and hungered for and it is here. We may not have found the wardrobe when we were children or the genie’s lamp in a cave, nor did a wizard necessarily come to take us off on an adventure. But the elves came, and smiled and hugged us and embraced us as their own, because, beloved, we are one of them, as you are one of us. . . . And in the stage of Actualization: So, make your magic real, beloved. Live your elfin life either openly, if you dare, or in secret. But when we make it real in our life and therefore in the lives of those around us, then Elfin shall manifest upon the Earth just as much as we are able to Actualize it in our own lives and surroundings. And from there it will spread like ivy growing up the sides of the buildings of the world.”

The Sixth Step or Stage of Elven Awakening is Acclimation

The sixth stage or step upon the Elven Way is very similar to, one might even say a higher version of, the fourth stage of Attunement. We call this sixth step or stage “Acclimation” for here one becomes used to living in the Elfin and Faerie realms of one’s perceptual reality, while still seeing and understanding that the normal folk perceive the world differently. While in the stage of Attunement one stands between the worlds; in Acclimation one is living on the very edge and boundary of Elfin and the Faerie realms but still effected by and able to affect the world that has been created by the mental constructs, or magic, of the dominant race upon the planet. They no longer have any power over our magic, our consciousness and we have ceased to doubt and embrace our elfae lives completely. While they may harm us physically, their dark magics no longer hold any sway over us. We are not deceived by their insistence that the world be a certain way, and we see the world as it is as energy taking various forms in order to experience life and to individuate. We see elves, faeries, pixies, brownies and all sorts of spirits all about us in living beings who may not be entirely awakened but are still fae from our point of view and experience.

     This is not to say that we insist others see the world as we do. We may see the fae-ness of others but, if they insist they are something else, usually of the race of Man, we are compelled by our own magics to accept that this is their desire for themselves. In our realms, you are whatever you wish to be, or become it in time; especially when you inform that belief and wish with action. And if they wish to be mundane men and women, who are we to say otherwise? Still, it doesn’t hurt to suggest their fae heritage to them from time-to-time. Usually, we do this very lightly, almost as if joking. “You look like an elf to us,” we might say. Or we may inform someone who seems like they are one of our kind, who appears in our elf sight as one of us, that, “We’re elves,” and see how they respond. Quite often they’ll reply, “I’m a faerie,” or gnome or whatever. Of course, they may just be playing along but then, that’s what elfae folk do, isn’t it! And they may not be ready to step completely upon the elven path, but all come to it, if they do, in their own time. 

     Some of these folks have had a light Awakening. They are at the place of Attunement, standing between the worlds, living in both realms at the same time and most likely still heavily affected by the world that surrounds them. When they come to the point of Acclimation, if they do so in this lifetime, the preponderance of magic will shift. Elfin and Faerie will hold sway in their lives and the world of the mundane will be but a somewhat necessary inconvenience … like cleaning the toilet.

     As we Acclimate to Faerie, the world opens up. The possibilities of our lives become wider but then the potential for what may happen is broader as well. Alas, the world is not less dangerous for having orcs and gremlins in it. But then, they were always there, just disguising themselves as men and women. And now we can see them for whom they truly are. We can see them coming usually, unless their glamor is very powerful, and we are not fooled, although we sometimes let them continue in their mistaken impression that we do not recognize them. 

     But, as we said, elfae folk of the Seelie sort are more evident as well and we have allies everywhere. Our magic goes forth and weaves its way into the warp and waft of the great tapestry of Elfin and is strengthened thereby. We now live in Elfin as a part of Faerie even while we still travel the worlds of Men. For this is our quest. This is our mission. This is our duty sworn voluntarily. This is the adventure we imagined and hungered for and it is here. We may not have found the wardrobe when we were children or the genie’s lamp in a cave, nor did a wizard necessarily come to take us off on an adventure. But the elves came, and smiled and hugged us and embraced us as their own, because, beloved, we are one of them, as you are one of us.

The Seventh Stage or Step in Elven Awakening is Actualization

The seventh step upon the Elven Way is Actualization and this stage includes all the other stages within it. We might call it the Master Stage, for it shows mastery of all the other stages functioning as one and it reveals Adeptship in one’s interaction with ones’elf, one’s others and the world around one. 

     While all elves are creative individuals, as are all elfae beings in general, at this stage one clearly and quite confidently steps into the role of the creator of elvish culture and even more than that takes part in the Actualization of Elfin upon the Earth. In this stage, you make Elfin real through your own life by an act, or really acts, of magic. It becomes ‘fait accompli.’ Elfin manifest through our lives and our beings. 

     One does not cease to follow the other steps upon achieving this stage. One continues to Awaken and to increase one’s understanding of one’s elfae being, becoming ever more conscious of the true protean nature of reality and the Universe and understanding that all form is transitory and thus, in that way, illusionary. But being the magic wielders that we are, being enchanters and increasingly becoming masters of glamorye, we understand now that we are free to create the world as we envision it to be and use our magic to make it so. We are no longer bound by the enculturation of the world. Nor do the threats and insinuations of those who preach this or that faith affect us. We know who we are and our elfae being is not dependent upon the beliefs of others but rather upon our own faith in ours’elves and our magic. 

     Naturally, we continue our Association with our kindred. Even more so now since, usually at this stage, one has one or more intimate kindred with whom one associates upon a regular basis. What is Elfin without our elfin friends? In fact, one could say that Elfin is all about friends and family. 

     Our efforts to refine ours’elves as individuals, to increase our power and abilities on all levels, to Activate our energies in every way, continues as well. There is no end to our inner potentiality and the more Activated we become, which is to say the more powerful we become, the more we are able to interact with others and the world in an effective fashion. We elves are, after all, enchanters first and foremost and our ability to enchant becomes greater and more subtle and elegant in our enchantments. We become Charmers, for sure. We develop charisma to a certain degree and again, this is a continuing process. One never ceases to improve when one makes a concerted effort to do so.

     And our ability to see the Faerie worlds around us increases as well. We are not only Attuned to the realms of Elfin and Faerie, but we are quite intentionally and willfully creating them. And yet, this willful activity comes quite naturally. It requires no effort from us save the daily effort to lead and improve our lives and the lives of those around us and we need to do nothing more than be our own true s’elves as best we may. We need not grunt and tense our bowels and furrow our brows as many young magicians do endeavoring to force their will upon the world. We need but be the wondrous elfae folk that we are and the world is enchanted by us and yields willingly to our wishes. The Faerie Circle spins about and we are part of the dance. Bright Elfin sings to us and we sing along with it and sometimes we find it is singing our song. 

     It is true that not all of us are drawn to the stage of Annunciation, at least as far as declaring one’s elfae being to the world and living it openly. And yet, at this seventh stage of Actualization, the way we live, even if we keep our elven nature secret from some folks, is an Annunciation of our elfae being. We are living our magic and making Elfin real in the normal world through our lives and while we may not announce we are elves or faerie folk to the normals around us, they will notice that there is something different about us. In a nice way really and, in fact, that is the great difference. While nearly everyone else in their world is complaining and jockeying for social position and secretly undermining each other while pretending to be best friends forever, we can be relied upon. Our word is our bond and we keep our promises and while we may seem crazy to some folks, it is a nice, eccentric and delightful crazy that interrupts their dull day-to-day lives with something different and sometimes mildly astonishing. We loosen their girdles just a bit and honestly, it is a relief to them, although they won’t always admit it. Although, they often tell us we are daring and dancing like they’d never dare to do, and we thank them and smile pleasantly and tell them they may be more daring than they realize. 

     In a sense, we are no longer Acclimating to Elfin at this stage. We now fit in perfectly and are not in conflict with Elfin at all. It is home. But Faerie? Well, Faerie is vast and can be dangerous. Even more dangerous than the normal world, for the possibilities are near endless and fantastic, so getting used to that fact can still take some time. It is ever surprising and there are always new things to learn. There is ever more to Faerie. More to learn, more to see, more to do and since we are manifesting Elfin in the material world, Faerie naturally starts to spill over into that world. Unusual things may happen, but then we are magic wielders and our wards are spinning, our sigils of protection hang upon our walls, our doors and windows are sealed with salt against wicked magics, including the dark magic of the normal world that seeks to absorb us into it and make us conform, and we are safe, relatively speaking from most of the dangers of those worlds. Since, it is good to be ever cautious and aware. 

     So, make your magic real, beloved. Live your elfin life either openly, if you dare, or in secret. But when we make it real in our life and therefore in the lives of those around us, then Elfin shall manifest upon the Earth just as much as we are able to Actualize it in our own lives and surroundings. And from there it will spread like ivy growing up the sides of the buildings of the world.

How Do We Know We Are Elven or Otherkin? And Why Do Elfae and Otherkin Not Always Know our Kin Type when Newly Awakened to Being Other?

February 16, 2021

Zardoa and Silver Flame The Silver Elves
“. . . in exploring one’s narrative, one’s personal story, it is important to reflect somatically, which is to say, with one’s feelings, on this inner sense of otherness. We do that without naming it at first, just feeling into it and allowing one’s intuition to be filled with its wonder. And because one’s personal magical narrative is not merely a matter of one’s history and experience in this lifetime, but includes all our previous incarnations, deep feeling and sensory experience is the best and most direct way to link ours’elves to the progress of our life through time.”

tiny_green_7star

The awareness of being elven, faerie or otherkin is nearly always an intuitive and instinctual recognition of one’s inner being. This awareness or awakening comes from the inside out. Often we relate to what we read or see in books, videos, films and television and they arouse our imagination and connect us to something deep within our being. At the same time, we often use these stories from fantasy, myth, legend and lore to explain what we feel about ours’elves to the world. However, while these presentations and descriptions of ours’elves that we glean from the outer world remind us of ours’elves, there is ever an inner narrative that comes first, from our soulful spirits, from our subconscious and instinctual being that has waited there like a seed or daemon to receive the moisture and light of those characterizations to stimulate them into growth. And this is seldom something we can verbally express at first and, like the seed beneath the soil, it arises from our feelings and subconscious being more than our logic that would be the light of day.

     This feeling awareness is something that comes prior to the outer narrative that we build concerning and describing ours’elves and that we use to express ours’elves to the world. This awareness or, we might say, this story (or faerie tale, if you will) of our elven spirit stems from an inner knowing of who we are as elfae beings and that arises from a place within us that does not use words so much as feeling and it’s first expression outwardly is in symbols and images. This explains why so many elfae and otherkin that are newly awakened do not know their tribe name or exactly what words to use to describe their kin type, they just feel they are Other. 

     First of all, we just know we are different. Most elfae folk have felt apart from those around us, felt different, even alienated from the normal world that to us makes no sense, or very little, at least. The need of the normal folk to compete over everything and to continually undermine each other, constantly serves to push us away from them and toward a more loving and supportive environment. We ever seek our own. And quite often it is in encountering our own, which is to say, crossing the path of awakened elfae, that our inner being first pushes its’elf above the surface of our unconscious awareness.

     And this difference between ours’elves and those around us, the divergence between how we feel, what we really know within, how we feel the world should be and how it actually is due to the behavior of the normal folk, makes it so we often know internally long before we are aware mentally that we are elves or otherkin. Which is to say, we know we are different, but we haven’t as yet given a name or description to that difference.

     Thus, in exploring one’s narrative, one’s personal story, it is important to reflect somatically, which is to say, with one’s feelings, on this inner sense of otherness. We do that without naming it at first, just feeling into it and allowing one’s intuition to be filled with its wonder. And because one’s personal magical narrative is not merely a matter of one’s history and experience in this lifetime, but includes all our previous incarnations, deep feeling and sensory experience is the best and most direct way to link ours’elves to the progress of our life through time.

     This inner sense and feeling will also speak to us through our dreams (both our night dreams and also our day dreams), although again it tends to speak in images and symbols rather than in the language of logic. Also, when we are in Nature, we will surely come to understand more about and connect to our inner source and narrative of who we truly are. Again, this won’t necessarily happen in words so much as in feeling. And what words there are may seem like a puzzle or a riddle that one must decipher, just as one most often needs to examine the elements of one’s dreams to understand them.

     It is later that we find the words that relate to and make understandable in language our life upon the Earthly plane in order to express this inner knowledge of s’elf. Those who look upon us from the outside, even most academic researchers in religion, sociology and other disciplines, most often neglect this understanding of our being. They, naturally, see us from their own point of view, often their preconceived notions. And they nearly always fail to understand who we are truly and really how we came to understand our being.

     These narrative studies can be very informative but they seldom make a distinction between the inner narrative from which our outer narrative springs. They see our beings as they are expressed by and in relation to the world around us, which is to say when we use movies and books to explain ourselves, but they often fail to comprehend the inner spirit that reaches out and makes that link in the first place.

     In a certain sense, our inner and outer narratives are similar to having an elf name (or normal name) that we use in the world and an elf name that is our spiritual signature and which is our occult or secret name. While we Silver Elves have elf names we use in the world (and also normal names when necessary), we also have elfin spirit names that were gifted to us by our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (see our books The Elf Magic Mail, vols. 1  & also vol. 2), of which we were and are still a part and only the inner sisterhood knows those names. But that, beloved, is another and deeper narrative.

     So search within, dear Kindred, and find and enjoy your deep feelings of being who you are naturally for as long as you will. Come back to this feeling often, without words, for that state of deep somatic contemplation is when you are in touch with your true soulful elfae spirit and this is from whence your magical narrative for the external world will spring.

And for further reading on the Elven, Faerie, Otherkin please enjoy reading one or all of the four Silver Elves books on magical Elfae and Otherkin Tribes. These are books of tribe narratives and will beautifully describe to you about their history, their unique powers and magics, their spiritual beliefs and practices, their way of governing, their spell crafting and herbal adeptship, along with their lifestyle and special creative interests and abilities. As you read them, you may well find your own tribe and/or those tribes to which you feel related:

otherkinstar_coverelftribesELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin and  FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. Please click on the titles listed above to go to the pages on this blog that are dedicated to each book, where you can read more about them, view excerpts of sample magical narratives and also the table of contents from both books. Elf Tribes contains 150+ narratives of elven tribes, and Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes contains another 150+ narratives of faerie and otherkin tribes.
We also invite you to read ELVES, FAERIES, FAE, AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: More Descriptions of Otherworldly Folk.

It is the third book in the series of Elf, Fae and Otherkin tribes by The Silver Elves. After publishing the first two books in this series, we Silver Elves continued to have many of our kindred fill out the kin type survey and contact us asking for a tribe narrative, so this third book in the series contains all of these Elves,Faeries,Fae3new tribe narratives to this date and is dedicated to a variety of tribes of elven kind, faeries, fae that are faerie blends, otherkin, otherworldlies, and miscellaneous assorted fae. The 124 tribe narratives in this third volume are all newly published and are not found in the two previous books. Some of the narratives are a bit longer than those in the first two books.

And our fourth book in this series of tribal narratives is Elfae Tribes: The Peoples of Faerie, which includes a total of 115 tribes of elves, faerie, fae and otherkin, all of which are newly published and are not found in the first three volumes in this series.

We invite you to join our elven and otherkin groups on Facebook, dear Kindred! Here is our vision for the groups as a virtual community:

For those wishing to join our many Silver Elves groups for Elfae and also friends of Elfae on Facebook, here is fairly complete list below of ones that we administer: You are all invited to any and all of them! We envision our 16+ Elfae Facebook groups as all connected (so in a way all one big elfae community group) and so going from one to the other is like meandering or flying around and being in a large elven community. It is like beautiful and enchanting large multi-story house that is inhabited by a number of elfae groups: (bottom floor has three private groups inside: The Elven Way and also Feasting with the Elves with a big kitchen and dining area for chatting, along with the Elven Homegroup); (second floor has the Faerie Craft group with a large display studio for elfae art); and (in the attic is the Elven Oracles Group where group oracle readings are always being shared). There are also lots of large enclosed or screened in porches off the main house (where you will find: Magical Books of the Silver Elves, Elfin Faerie Lore, Elven Life and Magic and We Adore Elves); there are also two gazebos, one is outside in the front lawn for Elvish Magical Chat and the other is in the back yard for I heart Elven Magic; an open circle outside around the bonfire to the side of the house for the Elf Witches of the Mystic Moon group; a quaint tree house out front for Elfae Tree Folk to meet; a faerie circle that is a bit beyond the back of the house in the forest for The Faerie Circle group to meet; and at the front gate is a cozy elfae cottage for those first entering to be greeting in the group Silver Elves Embassy. There is also a path from the house that wanders down to the creek and goes through where the group Nature and the Unseen Realms with the Elves and Otherkin meet and also that leads to meeting placesfor United Otherkin Alliance and its private sister group. So please do come join us in any and all of our groups:

This is an enchanting and private place for all elfae folk to share in cozy comfort. Feel free to share anything elfae related, and please do share (with images when you can) all about your own Eald (Elven Home) and the special aspects of it that make it your own enchanting elfin space.
