What is Elven Reawakening?

June 5, 2020

“In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. . .  We have  been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality. . . . another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. . . . . . “

We Silver Elves have spoken of Awakening, which is when someone realizes, often quite suddenly and frequently unexpectedly, that one is elven or fae or other of some variety, and elves are all about variety. We’ve heard and read many tales of various elves’ experiences with their Awakening, but almost nothing is ever said about Re-Awakening, which is also an elven phenomenon. So what is Re-Awakening?

In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. How can that be? Well, everyone, or at least nearly every elf or fae who awakens, is awakening because of something that is deep within them. Memories of past lives sometimes flash before their consciousness. And often, not so much memories as feelings of our lives in the past or our elven heritage. We have been elves before. We have been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality.

One might wonder then why we don’t just come into this life knowing, from the very beginning, that we are elfae of some sort, but there are several reasons why this doesn’t often happen. First of all, it is a simple truth that the vast majority of us are just not advanced enough to have obtained continuity of consciousness and come into this life with complete recall of our previous lives. For most of us such memories are fragmentary at best, often fanciful and mixed liberally with imagination.

But there is also some significance to such forgetfulness and that is it allows us to encounter the world purely at first, with a fresh unprejudiced eye and this initial encounter with the world often serves as a sort of inoculation for the elfae. We get a good dose of it and are thus protected from its madness.

In each life we come in anew, as our sages have often advised us to do, looking at the world with the eyes of a child, and we see the world as it currently is before we then awaken and remember and compare it to our previous and ancient lives as elves. Such comparisons usually are not favorable to the current state of the world, but we are always hoping that one day we will come into a world that is quite like our ancient elven realms or so close that our efforts to establish Elfin on Earth will bear great fruit.

But there is another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. They, in that sense, Re-Awaken their realization of their elfae nature. This Re-Awakening is usually much less dramatic than their first Awakening in this life, or as we say, perhaps their first Re-Awakening in this incarnation.

Why they wandered from the elven path usually has to do with the fact that we elves are few and far between in the world at this time. We Silver Elves don’t offer our kindred what they have often come to expect from the world that they were raised within, which is to say, rules, authoritarian leadership and preciseness. We tell people to think for their own s’elves, to create their own unique ‘ealds’ (elven home/space) and to decide for their own s’elves what they truly wish to be and inherently are. But as much as the newly awakened often wish for more directive guidance, it just isn’t good for them in the long run. The habits (hobbits?) of the world will not serve them in Elfin.

Of course, there are those who just came to us in the first place because this, that, or some other book or movie about elves stirred some little part of them that is elfae. But in time their excitement faded and they lost interest and wandered off elsewhere looking to continue the thrill. This is rather and actually very much like relationships and romances.

We often begin relationships with a bang, so to speak, and everything is exciting in the beginning. But if we move toward commitment in any fashion, that is to say we strive to sustain the relationship, then the work begins. The thrill that initiated the relationship has often faded and the day-to-day effort to keep the relationship alive comes to the fore. Some folks when faced with this reality merely move from one relationship to another, ever trying to experience that thrill again.

And this is often the same with those who come to us through a fad. They loved the thrill but the effort to continue their life in Elfin is just too much for them. They are just not developed enough in their elfae s’elves to continue on their own, and alas the support network that would help them do that just doesn’t exist as yet.

But this does not bother us. We nurture all our kindred as best we may, when they first awaken, when they re-awaken and even, if they allow us to do so, when they wander off. We are ever here for them. Ever here for each and every one of you, dear sisters and brothers. But what we have to give and offer isn’t always what people imagine or expect. We have but simple elven magic and blessings for you and they are ever freely given and you are always welcome to them and welcome here in Elfin.

“When the day begins to dawn before the sun does show,
The Way to Elfin opens then betwixt the twilight’s glow.
And when the sun does fade away yet light doth still touch the land,
The time hath come when you may run to join your elfin band.”

Beyond Death: The Elfin Book of the Dead, Ascending towards the Faerie Realms through Progressive Incarnations

“WHEN SOMEONE PASSES FROM THEIR BODY, THE ELVES GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE GREAT FOREST TO ANEW LIFE IN FAERIE.”. . . . . . .

New Release!
This book is found here for purchase on Amazon USA
and here on Amazon UK.

          BEYOND DEATH: The Elfin Book of the Dead 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.

     Part One of Beyond Death explores death and the Between states as it relates to a variety of topics including: elven magic, immortality of elves, raising the dead, lucid dreaming, the experience of the between state, the Death card in the Tarot, the stages of grief and dealing with death, death and amnesia, the fae descent into matter, Faerie and the Nether-realms, elven perspectives on how various myths and religions view death, the wild hunt, banshees and black dogs, Day of the Dead, Sitting Shiva and Shiva, astral travel and the relationship of death to teraphim, nature spirits and animism.

     It is nearly impossible to know exactly what you will encounter in the Between since our experience there depends greatly upon our own inner being and consciousness, especially our subconscious being, our right brained symbolic consciousness that manifests in dream states and during the Between. However, the general principles and developmental stages are rather universal so we have fashioned from an elven perspective spells and admonitions of guidance so that we might aid anyone who is transiting the realms of manifestation. These spells (see Part Two of the book) are linked to the Elven Star and its seven points and seven intersections or interstices (so 14 in all) and the energies they represent. They are designed to be spoken over 14 days (one spell each day) as you contemplate or more importantly feel (if you knew and have feelings for the individual you wish to guide) the person on whose behalf you are casting the spell. You might wish to set up a temporary magic table, what most people call an altar, with photos or items reminiscent of the individual(s) for this purpose. These spells and admonitions relate to energies of the 14 realms of manifestation: The Red Diamond World, Blue Wave World, Realm of the Wondrous Yellow Orb, Realm of the Rainbow Bridge, Emerald Green World, Orange Glowing World, Royal Purple Mist Realm, Lavender Lotus World, Deep Green Forest World, Golden Light of the Shining Realms, Silver Realms of Moonlight Being, Realm of the Amber Orbs of Translucent Wonder, Opalescent Realm of Radiant Being, and Pure Clear Realm of Radiant Light. We purposely put the 14 day spells and admonitions (ritual) for the recently deceased loved one as the Part Two in this book so it may be easy to find when you need it for guiding your loved one through the Between.

We would like to dedicate BEYOND DEATH to all the soulful spirits who have passed on to the Between due to the Coronvirus Pandemic 2020 and we hope you awaken onto the realization of the life eternal.

“It should be clear to nearly everyone that life in the world will eventually kill your body, but life in Elfin will ultimately awaken you to the immortality of you spirit.”

“Mayhaps the essence of the difference between the philosophies of the elves and that of men is this: Men think there is nothing more permanent than Death. While we elves think there is nothing more transitory.”
—The Silver Elves

 

Excerpts from: Beyond Death

PART ONE:
Musing on Life, which is to say Death, which is to say Life

Excerpt Page 21-25
Chapter 2: Are Elves Immortal?

     “Most stories about the fae folk say that we are immortal or very long lived. Of course, that’s also what is said about vampires (what we Silver Elves think of as dark elves, sometimes but not always of an unseelie variety) until someone plunges a stake through their heart or binds them into the sunlight and the light turns them to ashes and dust that blows away with the wind. This destroys their body, surely, but where does their spirit go?”

     “Elves, too, as we say, are sometimes seen as being immortal up until the point when we, like vampires, get killed, although the methods for killing us are often less idiosyncratic than it is for vampires. Still, if your body can be killed, it’s not exactly immortal as a cohesive unit, just potentially long lived and we each strive for immortality not only of the spirit but of the body as well.”

     “There is a reason that, while we know ours’elves to be spirits, we think of our bodies as our own and a part of us. It is true that we have, in a sense, commandeered energy from the Universe and formed it into our body and that body changes, shedding skin, hair and other things, all its cells being replaced periodically throughout our lives, and yet it still remains one unit while we are in it. Our body may change utterly through the course of a life and yet still we remain ours’elves. We are learning through the vehicles of incarnation how to construct bodies that will last and endure and become a part of us in a more permanent fashion. In a certain sense, the union of our spirit and our body is a marriage of sorts. The fact that for most of us, as yet, that marriage ends in divorce/death is only to say that we have much to learn about magic and need a good deal more time and effort in order to increase our own powers of endurance, healing and manifestation.”

     “As it is, most of us elves currently incarnated into human bodies do not have immortal material bodies. We die, like everyone else, but often, but not always, we do have a basic tendency to live a bit longer than normal human beings and to appear younger than our age as compared to most of the normal folk around us. But that may have less to do with us being elven than the fact that we also are inclined to have better diets, to exercise more and in general take better care of ours’elves and our bodies than Men often do theirs. But those things, in themselves, are surely elven traits, and it wouldn’t hurt Men at all to follow our example in this regard and in that way potentially live longer while becoming just a bit more elven. Of course, toning down their aggressive tendencies and their inclination to go to war with nearly everyone about nearly anything, would probably serve to extend their lives as well.”

     “Although, it is rather paradoxical that Men, who frequently think that they have only one life to live, so often treat their bodies with such rough disregard, while we elves, who know ours’elves to be essentially spirit, nurture, value and do our best to preserve our bodies in each incarnation even knowing that we will get another fresh one when our current one is done. Men often take better care of their cars than they do their own bodies. We elves see our bodies as a part of our spirit family, you might say, and we take care of our family, for all our kindred are beloved to us.”

     “And yet, though we do incarnate into fragile human bodies, there is an immortality to the elven, but that is really the case for all beings and is not something that is exclusive to we who are elven as some seem to suppose. It is just that some folks, like Men, have not realized the essential nature of their own immortal being. All of life is eternal. Our bodies are immortal, actually, or really the energy that we have used to formulate these bodies is, although the forms themselves are temporary and changing even as we inhabit them. But once the form dissolves the energy that composed it simply goes elsewhere. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it merely transforms. The key is in learning and achieving the ability to guide that transformation as best we may. Life after life, we develop our abilities, including our ability to successfully inhabit a material body and do so in a way that it will endure, heal and revitalize itself for as long as possible. Trees can live for thousands of years, why can’t we? And the answer is, of course, that we can, but we are still learning how to do so.”

     “Our spirits are immortal, even though they are not exactly the same thing as the transitory personalities that we use to express ours’elves any more than we are actually our thoughts, emotions or opinions. Our ideas, feelings and points of view may change, hopefully will, as we grow more experienced and potentially wise, but our essential nature, the core of our inner being, remains forever the same, although hopefully deepening, in a sense, as our experience, power and potential wisdom increase. We are always ours’elves even when we are not aware of who precisely that may happen to be.”

     “We may go through a period of finding ours’elves, as the expression goes, when we are very young, but finding ones’elf really is a quest for lifetimes and what most people mean by finding oneself is finding one’s place in the world, finding where one fits in or how one wishes to fit into society as it already exists. We may settle on some rather simple notions of our being as we develop into maturity, often falling back into the example that our parents set for us but we are always more than we may seem to be in any particular lifetime and continually evolving toward the greater realization of our beings, whether it seems that way or not. We may go down a lot of dead-ends in our search for enlightenment but those are an education, too. We may wander and meander but when we finally arrive in Elfin we will see that we got there just when we were meant to do so, and the journey, however inconsistent it may have seemed at times, was our path and no other’s.”

     “And certainly, the higher spirits, the Shining Ones who live upon higher dimensions, or more expansive dimensions, you might say, so that they are able to live in our world and yet beyond it, are immortal as compared to our limited incarnations, but even they are in the process of change and transformation, ever in the process of becoming. And while death may be different for them, chosen perhaps, rather than thrust upon them, they still are subject to change. Only it is something they embrace and use, like driving a car we might say, rather than to experience fearfully as most of us tend to fear death as though we are sitting in the backseat as our drunk and half blind grandfather races down the highway. We are, after all, energy formulated by a deep magical consciousness and attaining that consciousness in a more persistent and constant fashion is to obtain immortality. Continuity of consciousness from life to life or body to body or incarnation to incarnation, however you may wish to express it, is immortality in the sense that most of us deem it to be and strive toward achieving. . . . .”

The Spell:
“Death’s icy grip brings me no fear
For Elfin’s love does hold me dear”

Excerpt Page 36-39
Chapter 4: Lucid Dreaming, Astral travel, the Body of Light

     “Some folks might question the existence of this deeper consciousness, thinking only the conscious mind exists, just as they question the reality of the Between, but this deeper inner consciousness is also the consciousness that guides people around when they are sleepwalking. They are not in their normal waking consciousness and yet they find their way around quite instinctively. It is this inner consciousness that guides us in the Between most of the time, a sort of sleepwalking that gets us to where we need to go.”

     “So, if that is the case, what is the value of developing lucid dreaming, practicing astral travel and formulating the energetic body of light? If they are essentially unnecessary, why bother to develop these abilities at all? The fact is that we are in this life to learn to master the material world and create enduring bodies that will not die, at least not so quickly at first, and which later will become immortal. Part of the process of doing this is infusing ours’elves and our lives and our worlds and thus our bodies with that very light that we use to create our imaginal bodies, our illuminated bodies. We are becoming enlightened. We are becoming bright. Not just mentally, as this notion is usually taken to mean, not just in our minds, our thoughts, opinions and points of view, but also in our bodies so that we, like the pictures of saints with halos, radiate light all around us affecting the world for the better through our mere presence. We are becoming radiant beings and in doing so mastering the material world.”

     “Part of the process of creating immortal bodies is also the transformation of those bodies into forms that are more and more composed of light, which is to say made of matter in its illuminated essence, and thus, in more than one way, less dense, closer to the source of the energy which composes these bodily forms and thus more enduring. We expand thereby into the fourth dimension, that is we learn to consciously live in four dimensions and not just in three as we currently do Most of us usually live in three dimensions utterly unaware of the potential of our fourth dimensional reality or of our possible and we might say eventual or even destined existence there.”

     “Elfin and Faerie are frequently seen as being parallel worlds that live alongside of what most people call the “real” world but as worlds that exist but are more ephemeral in nature. This is what we are speaking of. Entering Faerie or Elfin isn’t about stepping through a portal into another realm almost exactly like this one but which is elsewhere in space as you might travel from Japan to China and back, although death is that portal in a certain sense. But the goal is to become able to live permanently in that world by making ours’elves and our lives more light-filled, thus vibrating upon the same frequency as the Faerie and Elfin realms. And it is this harmony of vibration that allows us to enter or live within those realms. In vibrating on the same frequency as Elfin, we become attuned to Elfin, which in effect means that we enter Elfin and can live there.”

     “Entering Elfin or Faerie by becoming more illuminated is our quest and becoming more illuminated is also the means for succeeding in that objective. Becoming more elfin is increasing the power and vibrancy of one’s aura, the radiated inner light of our being, which is also to say our aura and our powers of enchantment. And it is by becoming more elfin, more filled with the light of Elfin enchantment, that we create Elfin around us. It is a paradox of Faerie magic that Elfin exists and yet our own existence there depends upon us creating it, or making it real in our own lives..”

And from page 42 of the same chapter on forming your body of light:

“. . . .  See your body as light, formed as you desire, and move in that body. This is just like Olympian athletes who imagine themselves doing their particular sport to increase their skill and performance. Going through the motions in our minds increases our ability to do it in physical space, only in this case, the Between is a very subtle form of physicality. It is form composed of very fine substance. . . . . . . “

The Spell [for developing your body of light]:
“In a body formed of light
My elfin spirit soars in flight”

Arvyndase:
“Ver na miwa qumïn u lun
El’na êldat tari roflu ver fosd”

Pronunciation:
Veer nah my – wah que-m – in loon
Eel’nah l – date tay – rye row-f – lou veer foes-d

PART TWO:

Dealing with Reality and the Practical Application of Spells for Aiding in the Transition through the Between:
Excerpt Page 297-298:
Chapter 29: Enchantment for the First Day, Point One on the Elven Star

     “Listen to my voice, Oh, noble elfae one, …. (and/or say the person’s name and think of them and/or feel their presence), and heed well the blessings I send unto you. After having slept for a time, you are now awakening into the Red Diamond World and you now remember that you are immortal and shall live forever. You knew this previously but had forgotten this truth. While this realization might bring you joy, it may also produce fear in you for the great unknown still looms before you. And everything now seems overwhelming and you are washed away with the tide of the life energy going swiftly you know not where faster than you can think or imagine. Do not resist this flow. There is no need to do so and no purpose in doing so.”

     “However, if you have hated anyone in your previous life, any person or group of people, those individuals will now appear before you, mighty in their visage, threatening in their being and their rage against you, and you will tend to forget that you are an immortal being once more and fear for your survival.”

     “If you flee from them you will reenter the material world seeking incarnation as quickly as possible in whatever portal opens and you will likely be born in the grimlen world among those who live their lives with hate in their hearts and you will be trapped for another life attempting to free yours’elf or be carried away by senseless and unthinking animosity your entire existence there, living in a hell world, often without realizing you are doing so. But this is not at all necessary and you can relinquish your enmity at any moment and fly free.”

     “And heed well, oh, immortal one, these beings that threaten you now are but part of your own being. You need not fear or hate them, for in doing so you are only fearing your own powers and hating part of yours’elf, baring yours’elf from further realization, limiting your enchantments and trapping yours’elf without realizing you are doing so.”

     “Relax. Touch your heart, as I now touch mine, and extend your hand to them in peace, as I extend mine to you, and go on farther into the Between. Be not born again yet, there are better worlds ahead of you and greater powers still to realize.”

     “Now say this chant with me:”

“I do not hate

I do not fear

I embrace mys’elf

And all who are near

We are one in our hearts

And that is quite clear

As the way before me opens.”

[End of Excerpt from Chapter 29!]

Excerpt Page 310-311:
Chapter 36:  Enchantment for the Eighth Day, Between points One and Two on the Elven Star

     “Greetings, noble Shining One, …., you have entered the Lavender Lotus World, and are awash in pleasure. Unlike the second world where nothing you consumed satisfied you, here even the tiniest bit of any food or drink or touch fills you with ecstasy and you need nothing more than a dab of anything. The realms are Glorious and all is awash in magic.”

     “You are new here, and naturally filled with the joy of having ventured into the Higher Realms of Faerie and need do little more at first than relax, enjoy yours’elf and get your bearings. Here is the true Rapture and you are aware that you can now create your body to be or seem utterly as you desire. Create your own form. Change it again, like someone trying on clothes from their closet or in a shop. You may appear exactly as you wish.”

     “And in time, which is different now, so in your own time, you realize you can now fly or levitate, if that is your will. You have the power to inspire others in the world with your thought forms. Especially those who are connected to you of old will be inspired by you, or those who call out to you for aid and it may be that they look upon you as a sort of god, but it would be unwise to fall for this illusion. You are more advanced than they, surely, but still evolving. Be like a loving parent unto them or a kindly and caring elder sibling”.

     “Here you may develop the power of great healing. Shed your healing light upon those of us still struggling and inspire us to live our lives in enlightened and wondrous ways spreading healing in our own lives and by our actions.”

     “Stay in this realm as long as you desire, mighty elfae one, or return to the world if you will to serve or would learn even more or go on further for there is still much to understand and worlds even greater to explore.”

     Listen now to my evocation:

“Oh, Shining One, so great and true

Remember me (us) in all you do

Reach out your heart

Stretch out your mind

So greater worlds I (we), too, will find

And rising through the planes I’ll (we’ll) be

One with you as you are with me (we).”

Can we be Born as one Type of Elf, Fae or Otherkin in One Life and Another Kin Type in a Different Incarnation?

May 22, 2020

elves
“. . .  our bodies, overall, are merely forms that our spirits have created from our own inner visions, thus surely a person can change their form or otherkin type from one life to another. And certainly there are those who alter what they think of as their kin type in a single lifetime, instinctually gravitating in the long run toward the realization of their true nature and the form which best expresses it.”

Note: The photo featured above, titled “Dragon Sorcerer” is of the original acrylic painting by Zardoa Silverstar that is on the cover of Sorcerers’ Dialogues by The Silver Elves.

     If we consider that nearly all fae/elfae are in some sense shapeshifters or have the magical power of glamourie, then we would certainly have the power to appear in whatever form that we may choose from one incarnation to another. And certainly, we do alter our form as we inhabit a new body in each incarnation. Although it is quite possible that certain individuals have a preferred kin type, just as they have a sexual preference for blonds or whatever, and we choose the same sort of body that looks similar to our previous bodies over and over again. People often get involved with or marry the same sort of individual time after time, and we elfae also have inner preferences that guide us in our own development and alignment with a particular kin type.

     And we might note that our bodies, overall, are merely forms that our spirits have created from our own inner visions, thus surely a person can change their form or otherkin type from one life to another. And certainly there are those who alter what they think of as their kin type in a single lifetime, instinctually gravitating in the long run toward the realization of their true nature and the form which best expresses it.

     Yet, at the same time, there is a sense that our spirits are seeking some way to manifest their essential being in a form that is pleasing to thems’elves and, most often but not always, in a form that is pleasing to others. We seek to express ours’elves in our elfae and otherkin forms in order to come to understand our essential natures, to interact with our others in harmonious and loving ways, and to manifest our creative s’elves but also to attract those we desire, sometimes altering ours’elves to do so. Just as men and women and others seek to make themselves more beautiful and appealing to those who have stirred their inner being, or libido at least. We tend to become like those who appeal to us. Or we become their complementary opposite. Our forms are transitory and our strategy, in the long run, as is the case with flowers using scent to attract bees to spread their pollen, is to appeal to those who we feel will further our being and our success.

     This rather flies in the face of those who still have a materialistic idea concerning life on Earth and feel that our elfae or otherkin nature is determined by biology. According to those folk, we are what we are and have no choice but to be so due to our genetic inheritance. But it is this very idea that tends to disregard those who are transkinder in some form or other (a term we Silver Elves use to indicate those who shapeshift kin type lifetime to lifetime or in the current lifetime) and disapprove of those that are transgender who feel they are a woman trapped in a man’s body or a man in a woman’s body and so forth. And, let’s face it, such transkinder or transgender individuals are essentially shapeshifters and most often of an elfae nature for among us shapeshifting is natural and generally accepted. It is part of who we are.

     We elfae and others, and especially we elven, are a very flexible and adaptable people. We seek to fit in and harmonize with everyone while retaining our essential otherness and generally seeking to accept others for whom they are as well. Thus, when someone alters their kintype expression, it is simply the way it is to us. In our elven point of view, it is not entirely unlike children who wish to learn the saxophone and then decide that they would rather play the piano or some other instrument. It is all a part of exploring and developing and coming to understand ones’elf while evolving and acquiring various skills and abilities along the way, as well as a basic familiarity with this, that and other things. What in colleges and universities is often referred to as a liberal education.

     This altering of kintypes is also not that different from those who have one hero and then find another, or those who are into this fad or group or band and then find another more appealing. In time we come to know ours’elves and while our interests don’t need to narrow, our expression often becomes more selective as we choose to pursue those creative fields and magics that most appeal to us and which, quite often, are those we find we are good at and that others encourage us to pursue. Or, as the case often is with elfae, that we have determined at some time to develop whether anyone else encourages us or not.

     So, be whatever you wish to be, beloved kindred, and if you feel yours’elf transforming, it may just be that you thought you were a caterpillar and are turning out to be a butterfly.

Now A Gift For You!!!!!
What Kind of Elf or Otherkin Are You?
And What is Your Elfae or Otherkin Tribe?

For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. You probably know if you are an elf, faerie, or otherkin but now we’ve created a questionnaire in order to help us and you create a narrative together about your specific people and your clan, their personal characteristics, magic, relationship to Nature, and interests. This is our gift to you (free), which we think will be a bit of fun for both of us. Give us five minutes of your time and we will give you a half hour to forty minutes of ours and send you your unique magical narrative. Simply follow this link and the directions on the page: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html

 

“When the day begins to dawn before the sun does show,
The Way to Elfin opens then betwixt the twilight’s glow.
And when the sun does fade away yet light doth still touch the land,
The time hath come when you may run to join your elfin band.”

—The Silver Elves

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 new 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. These tribe narratives will beautifully describe to you about their history, their unique powers, their unique magics and spiritual beliefs and practices, their way of governing, their spell crafting and herbal adeptship, along with their lifestyle and special creative interests and abilities.

Be sure and click on the title links above and read a few of these magical tribe narratives. Perhaps, you will 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).

The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones

Elven saying on the cover of The Elven Way:

the-silver-elves-quotes-2

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.”
—The Silver Elves

 

“Elfin sings upon the dawn and dances through the whole day long
until the night doth gently rise with starlight cast upon our eyes,
and love abounds and circles ’bout,
and we greet the moon with howling shout.”
—The Silver Elves

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.”

Do Elves Believe True Love Exists?

May 1, 2020
silver-zardoa2020
“. . . beloved elfin kin, love truly for as long as your love lasts, as long as you are together, or apart, love truly, which is to say s’elflessly, seeking ever the best for the other, and you will find that loving truly is the key to true love.”

      “Elfin sings upon the dawn
and dances through the whole day long
until the night doth gently rise
with starlight cast upon our eyes,
and love abounds and circles ’bout,
and we greet the moon with howling shout.”
—The Silver Elves

Note from the elves! We know that many of you are not able to attend your usual May Day/Beltane/Lei Day celebrations this year due to the need for social distancing, so we have left you below some magical spells to use in your enchantment magic to attract your elfin kindred and to weave the magic of love in your lives for when we can gather together again in celebration (see these spells below in the section about Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way). And in the meantime, we invite you, dear Kindred, to come join our “Magical Books of the Silver Elves” Facebook group, where we may virtually connect and celebrate together. We hope you enjoy the article below and we wish you many Elven Blessings!

Leiday

     As it happens, we are writing this on the Eve of May Day/Beltane (and here in Hawaii it is Lei Day or the celebration of Aloha Spirit and the giving of flowers), which is a bit of a coincidence and for us a synchronicity, which is to say a coincidence that has psychological import and meaning to us. About thirty five years ago, after knowing each other for nearly a decade but being for much of that time separated by time, space and circumstance, we, Zardoa and Silver Flame, were able to get together and have been together, quite delightfully ever since. A short time after we were reunited, we attended a Pagan gathering on Beltane that was organized by the Church of All Worlds and our friends Oberon Zell Ravenheart and Morninglory in conjunction with Forever Forests and our friend Anodea Judith.

      Originally, we had been invited by Anodea and it had been conceived as a free gathering. Somehow in the intervening months between that original invitation and the actual event it had become a pay to attend gathering but we had not been informed and arrived with our crew, which at that time consisted of about a half dozen elf folk and elf friends, not realizing this was the case and thus not having brought the wherewithal to pay for entry. Fortunately, after Zardoa had a quiet word with Oberon, and due much to the kindness of Oberon’s spirit, we were allowed to attend anyway, with a promise to help as best we could with the event. So, Beltane has always been a significant day for us, a sort of anniversary, you might say, of our union and our coming together on a permanent basis, even though we don’t usually celebrate various pagan holidays unless, of course, we’re around our pagan elven kindred. And then we will celebrate whatever they are celebrating.

      And so, does true love exist? Certainly. It can be seen most easily in a parent’s love for their child. Not that all parents love their children, or that all parents even know how to love their children, or love anyone else for that matter for if you can’t love your child it is unlikely you are capable of loving anyone. But if you are looking for true, lasting and abiding love, love where a person will willingly lay down their life for the other, and will otherwise willingly and even eagerly spend their entire life devoted to doing all that they can to help and promote the well-being of that other, then seeing a parent’s love for their child is an easy way to see true love.

      Of course, when most people are asking about true love and whether it exists or not, they really mean romantic love. That question is not whether families can love each other, often despite everything, but can two strangers that come together really and truly love each other? Can you truly love each other if you are not genetically related is the essence of the question, if you started out as strangers? And the answer is, according to the elves, well, yes, it does exist. In fact, such love is actually quite common and easy to observe. There are many people, usually young but not always so who are in love, who fall in love and truly love each other. Surely, a certain amount of infatuation and especially among the younger folk a certain or great amount of lust is involved but none-the-less their love is real.

      It is true that there are those who get together that have ulterior motives, who unite with another and fane love because of a desire for advancement in their career, financial situation or have some other motive, but there are many who are just plain in love with each other, who have become enchanted by each other, cast a spell on each other at the same time and truly love each other.

      But, there is another aspect to this question, which is that usually when someone speaks of true love and wants to know if it is real, that individual also really is asking, can it last? They are not really inquiring about does true love exist, but can true love endure? And, yes, it can. Or perhaps we should say, yes, we can make it last. And by make, we mean magic. Can we magic it to last?

      It is true that love can be fleeting. People who seem deeply in love at one point often wind up seeming to hate each other later. Their love, we are told, has flown away. But the fact that their love didn’t last, doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. True love does exist, but getting it to last does seem to take a bit of effort over time due to numerous factors. The various pressures of the world are usually the most potent among these. Little envious demons hating that you love each other, throwing obstacles in the way of things are one factor, but another is just the fact that life on the material plane can be difficult at times. We’re wading through matter here. It’s thick and slow and makes everything more difficult. We’re not living on the Moon — unless we’re in love — we’re on the Earth and gravity can really suck here at times.

      Still, to the elves, true love is real even if it doesn’t endure. And yet, it can endure, it can last. It may transform, certainly, just as we ours’Elves change in time. It may and, hopefully, will mature. The nature of the passionate bond may mature as well. For if true love exists, and lasts then it will also age, as we do or along with us. It gains a certain patina with age, however, making it even more beautiful.

      So, beloved elfin kin, love truly for as long as your love lasts, as long as you are together, or apart, love truly, which is to say s’elflessly, seeking ever the best for the other, and you will find that loving truly is the key to true love.

And if you enjoyed the article above on the magic of true love, we Silver Elves think you may very much enjoy reading some of our Silver Elves books listed below on Elven Magic and Enchantment. Just click on and follow the links (the titles) to read more about them, table of contents and excerpts from each book:

1.) Here is a book to help you feel more at ease in the normal world and includes a couple of chapters on elven courting and romance:

What An Elf Would Do:
A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk

by The Silver Elves

WHAT AN ELF WOULD DO: A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk by The Silver Elves 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. It is designed to help the elfin everywhere to move through the often mysterious cultures of mankind with confidence and ease.

4whatelfwoulddobig

Gaea de las Aguas writes on Amazon in her review of What An Elf Would Do: “Think of this as “Ms. Manners” for the Otherkin set. Ever wondered how to handle yourself with grace and style whilst traversing the mundane realms? Let this tome be your guide! Lessons on how to present oneself as a skilled and artful Noble are here in abundance. Insight into human behavior patterns and tips on how to deal with difficult personality quirks are found on just about every page. Delivered with a lovely sense of humour (I’ve laughed out loud many times), the Silver Elves bring us a reference guide to assist with polishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

 

2.)Elven Enchantment

The Keys to Elfin Enchantment:
Mastery of the Faerie Light Through the Portals of Manifestation

by The Silver Elves
This is a book of enchantment, for enchanters, revealing the Keys to Enchantment, the true and greatest magic of the elfin folk. It is filled with the philosophy of the elves and how they encounter and subtly transform the world wielding and fulfilling its dreams and desires while guiding it toward a better and more elfin future.

 

3.) And for a book on elven enchantment that includes practical magic to help you attract true love and unite your own community of kindred:

Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way by The Silver Elves is a book of magic — very practical magic that involves the creation of one’s magical tools, which include wands, staffs, rattles, crowns, hoods, robes and many other instruments of magic and, in this case inHedgewitcheryBook particular, of elven magic and enchantment. In this book, we share with you many of our favorite magical elven art projects that we have enjoyed doing in the last 40+ years and give you guidance and detailed instructions for creating your own and using them in your magic, along with over 100 photos to demonstrate the art processes. Also, this is a book of elven spells and enchantment magic, with elven rhyming magical spells (200 spells in total written in both English and the magical language of the Silver Elves — Arvyndase, including Arvyndase pronunciation keys) that you may use in rituals to empower your art and magic with each magical item and creative project.
Example below:
Attraction spell: (for attracting true lovers, elf friends and kindred)
“Like magnets we attract our kin
Lovers true and elven friend.”
(Arvyndase)
“Sylar rakali eli chanae eli’na eldi
Kyêlåfåli lod nar êldata edar.”
(Pronunciation)
Sill – lair ray – kay – lie e – lie chay – nae e – lie’nah eel – die
Key – l – lah – fah – lie load nair l – day – tah e – dare

S’elf Healing Spell:
“Body, mind, spirit and soul
In every way, I am made whole.”

(Arvyndase)
“Miwa, car, tari nar der
Ver lotym yer, El da kordïn loj.”

(Pronunciation)
Me – wah, car, tay – rye nair deer
Veer low – tim year, Eel dah cord – in low-j.

Togetherness Spell: (Use to unite the individuals who are working on the elven home or community process together and draw them closer together.)
“Closer you are bound to me
Now we go from I to We.”

(Arvyndase)

“Veskfa le da cyrnïn va el
Mat eli tas an El va Eli.”

(Pronunciation)
Vees-k – fah lee dah cern – in vah eel
Mate e – lie tace ane Eel vah Eli.

We include in Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic our magical art processes from faerie altered clothing and making faerie houses to creating magical elf stones and ritual tools such as a Book of Shadows (or a Book of Twilight as we elves call them) and also a Scrapbook of Shadows, chalices, ally dolls, wands, canes, staffs, seaweed pod rattles, magic plates, elven warrior shields, wishing wheels, mojo bags, and elven witches brooms and magic spoons. We further have chapters in this book on making elfin dream pillows, fairy dust and pixie powder, elven magical boxes or reliquaries, elven Mbuti, paintings, illuminated circles, magic soul cards, tarot decks, pan pipes, fantasy maps and even some of our favorite elven group-art games like elven notan and Elven Chess. We also have a chapter on spell crafting using the seven-pointed elven star. And in our final chapter, we share with you more about the Orb of Healing, which is a magical artifact that is at the center of our elven magick.
You may read a bit more about Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic with a few examples of spells from it here.

“If you ask the elves what the greatest magical power is, they will tell you healing, for healing sets everything aright. And if you ask them what healing consists of, they will tell true love, for true love heals all things. And if you ask them what the source of true love is, they will tell you it is the Divine Magic, for the Divine Magic loves all things and eternally seeks their happiness and fulfillment.”
—from Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic

 

4.)
Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge
Creating_miraclesBookcoverThis is a book of Elfin Thaumaturgy, of miracle working and wonder creation, although for these elves we much prefer the idea of wonder working and creation to the idea of miracles. We love wonders. We love creating them; we love encountering them. This simple tome will explore the means by which we may do so.

“Wondrous is Faerie
Radiant and fair
But most wondrous of all
Is the love we elven share.”

—The Silver Elves

 

“Every time you step out the door, you may be risking your life. All the time you remain within, you could be risking your mind. Every time you fall in love, you might be endangering your heart. Every time you refuse to love, you could be depriving your soul. Yet, go or stay, love or not, Life is Eternal, and Elfin ever awaits us.”
—The Silver Elves

“Elfin’s a world that’s born of dreams,
Entwined upon their touching seams,
Creating a world that’s greater still
Where every soul can love fulfill.”
—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.

If you are further interested in our magic philosophy and rituals, we suggest that you visit our website and read sample pages and the table of contents of our two volumes (also both available on Amazon) of The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves (volume 1) and here you will find volume 2. In these two books we explore the Elven viewpoint concerning magick and the tools of magic with magical ceremonies that may be adapted for use by modern faerie folk. The two volumes give the complete progression of color magicks and also explore Elven Vortexes and Covens, as well as our theories on calling the directions and dimensions and more.

MagicStagesSilverElves

We Silver Elves created this Color Magic system as something fluid and individual. You start with what Color Magic you feel you are drawn to. If you don’t have a preference and are a person who likes things set in order, then start with One. If you are a person who likes to go more by your feelings, then choose first the one you are attracted to and feel you meed in your life. It is said that if you like to look at this in terms of order, one might think of the color sequence above as being akin to something like Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs, only applied to magic and ritual. For instance, it’s hard to do Healing Green Magic, if one is under psychic attack and therefore one must first defend oneself and place barriers and be in a secure, safe place b

efore one can do any healing. That is why, for example, Black Magic or Protection Magic is placed before Healing Green Magic. Also, “Health” is a perhaps the greatest wealth, which is why Healing Magic comes before Orange Magic for wealth generation, and so forth.

But remember that we often are working on more than one color magic at a time in our lives just as we have more than one need at a time that needs fulfilling. So while you certainly may go in an order 1 to 10, what you need is truly your decision and you may need to do more than one at a time. We don’t actually have charts or graphs in our books, most likely because the Elven Way is so fluid. To read more on elven color magic and ritual see:  The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves, volume 1 and also The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves, Volume 2

Elves, Faeries, Fae and Otherkin Tribes: More Descriptions of Otherworldly Folk

May 1, 2020

Elves,Faeries,Fae3
Elves, Faeries, Fae and Otherkin Tribes:
More Descriptions of Otherworldly Folk
by The Silver Elves

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

ELVES, FAERIES, FAE, AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: More Descriptions of Otherworldly Folk is the third book in the series of Elf, Fae and Otherkin tribes by The Silver Elves. The first book, Elf Tribes, is composed strictly of Elfin tribes (150+); and the second book, Faerie, Fae, and Otherkin Tribes, describes Faerie, Fae and Otherkin tribes (150+). 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 new 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. These tribe narratives will beautifully describe to you about their history, their unique powers, their unique magics and spiritual beliefs and practices, their way of governing, their spell crafting and herbal adeptship, along with their lifestyle and special creative interests and abilities.

     You will find as you read through the many narratives in this book that the elfin, faerie, fae and otherkin are quite varied in their magic, healing abilities, lifestyle, art, ancient ways, governance, love of nature, relationship to mankind, preferences, symbols and skills. The book is divided into three main sections: The first section being tribes of elves of which there are 59, some are of the forests and valleys, others of the mountains, rivers, lakes and oceans. There are migratory elves, traveler elves, and elves of the mists. There are meadow elves, elves of the grasslands and plains, desert elves, and some elves that are advanced Faerie beings. The second section is composed of 24 tribes of faerie and of fae that are faerie blends of the mountain forests and the valleys. Some of these tribes go back to the most ancient times and etheric and subtle dimensions of being. Others are fae who are travelers or trooper, of the rivers, of the deep forests, of the forest lakes, of the forests near the ocean, those traveling through the forests, of the lakes, and of the ocean caves. And the third section contains narratives of 41 tribes of a variety of otherkin, otherworldlies, and various assorted other fae. These are a variety of otherkin and otherworldly folk who are not necessarily elves or faeries even though they may well be related. This includes orders of the Shining Ones who are advancing upon the path of light and realization by returning to physical form to help heal others. Also included are tribes of unicorns and centaurs, leprechauns, the dryad, were-wolves, dragons, dragon fae and starkin, pixies, phookas, shapeshifters, djinn, fauns and satyrs, orcs, some mixed otherkin tribes, the unseelie, dwarves, döckálfar and svartalfar, mermaids, selkies, sirens, water sprites, bogles, brownies, and Kitsune.

     In these modern times we now abide, it is most important that the faerie, fae and otherkin have a strong magical narrative of their own in a world that often likes to tell us who we are and who we are not, and mostly quite inaccurately so. It is the hope of The Silver Elves that in reading the magical narratives contained in Elves, Faeries, Fae, and Otherkin Tribes that elfae kindred will be inspired to begin if they have not already done so to create their own narrative or add to what they already remember and intuit.

Over the last 30 years or so, we Silver Elves have given out over 6,000 elf names in our magical language Arvyndase to individuals who requested them. For years, many of the individuals who requested an elf name would also write to us and say that they felt that they were elven but didn’t know any more about their elven or fae tribe. And for years, we told them that they should trust their imaginations and intuitions and while that is still very good advice, we realized in time that this was not any easy thing to do for many of these kindred of ours who were often newly awakened and needed a bit of guidance upon the path. In response to this, we created the Elf, Faerie, Otherkin Survey on our website, as a means of eliciting the information that we needed from these individuals so we might create a narrative for them about their own magical tribe or clan of Elves, Fae or Others that was germane to them and as close as we could get based upon their responses and our own intuition. Note: we have also added the Elf, Faerie, Otherkin Survey to our blogsite, so you may also go here to find the directions for taking this quiz and receiving your magical narrative.

Sample Narratives from Elves, Faeries, Fae and Otherkin Tribes:
Here for you to enjoy reading are a few examples from the 124 kin type narratives found in Elves, Faeries, Fae and Otherkin Tribes.

Excerpts from Section One: Elf Tribes

The Leadothla (pronounced lee – a – doe-th – lah) tribe of the Syndalynlae (sin – day – lynn – lay) nation are wood elves who live in a hidden city deep in the forest. They migrated to the Earth from another star system but that was so long ago and much of what was known about that system has been lost to time and memory. And, at the same time and for the most part, they are happy here, except for the fact that so many among Men seem hell-bent upon destroying the Earth that, like so many elfin, the Leadothla cherish as well as revel in their deep and abiding connection to Nature overall.

     Their nation is ruled by a King, whom they refer to as the Great Star Singer but then their people as a whole are often called the Star Singers, or the People of the Singing Stars, for they see thems’elves as singing with the stars. Their king is just being the chief among them. The lead singer, you might say. His title comes from the fact that while the Leadothla may have forgotten many of the details of their lives in another star system, they have never lost their inner connection to that system, and they use their voices, often in a combined form, like a chorus, to draw down the magic and energy of the stars into their lives and into the lives of those around them. In this way, they spread healing and blessings upon the Earth overall. For they are a very healing folk, advanced elven souls, striving to bring light and love to the Earth and its inhabitants and to help all beings to realize their destiny among the stars, living in harmony together.

     So, it is that these elfin folk don’t wear fur, and are, in fact, very much against it, because of their sympathy with all of the Earth’s creatures. As the Leadothla say, everyone deserves respect and if they haven’t earned it, they should still be given respect so that they will learn to respect themselves and all others. It is sort of the philosophy of paying it forward, only perhaps, in this case, paying it first and getting the ball rolling.

     Their flags and banners bear a white tree upon it, with stars in its roots and the moon above it upon a blue background. The stars at the roots represent their origins in another star system, a system they call Tae Fyr nar Rafan (The Fox and Raven) where their planet was called Tae Bihyr, The Deer. The moon above denotes their connection to the Earth and the Earth’s magic as it functions in harmony as a part of this Solar system.

     The white tree is said to indicate the purity of their being and their essential connection to the trees and woodlands. But it is also rumored that there was a white tree, with white bark and white leaves that grew upon their home planet and that they brought the seeds from these trees with them to the Earth. However, it is also said that this tree doesn’t seed but every ten thousand or so years, and that the Leadothla are saving the seeds for a time when the forests are no longer in danger of being destroyed due to the predatory behaviors of Mankind. Some have said that when the Leadothla do plant those seeds it will mark the beginning of the Age of Faerie, which is predicted to coincide with the emergence of the Sixth Root Race of Mankind.

     The Leadothla are noted for wearing temporary tattoos, made from silvery henna like tree bark. They paint it upon their faces, hands, arms and legs particularly. These are often vertical or horizonal lines or streaks upon their skin and, like henna, this substance dyes the skin and lasts for weeks, or sometimes in this case, for months. However, unlike henna, the original color does not fade to another color, as for instance the black of henna becomes orange, but their tattoos remain silvery throughout until they fade away entirely.

     Religiously, the Leadothla are mixed. About half of them believe, as most elves do, that the Divine Magic is an energy that exists in potential in all things and all beings awaiting to be realized by each in their own way. The other half of the population believes in an outside force, or deity that they call Tae Wyl Tendas, The All Seeing, which is a non-gender power that set the Universe in motion and oversees all things, but for the most part, doesn’t interfere except to make sure its essential designs are fulfilled. However, being elven, there is no conflict between those holding these two points of view, and each appreciates the right of others to believe as they will. Nor do they try to convert each other.

   

The Nåralaar (pronounced nah – ray – lay – air) elves of the Klyntåpa (clinn – tah – pah) peoples organize thems’elves into small bands and of these there are two essential types, the wolves and the dragons, although really the wolves are formed in bands and the dragons, for the most part, are inclined to be wizards and sorcerers and sometimes hedgewitches who spend most of their time alone pursuing their particular studies, doing various experiments and living just slightly apart from the villages that they serve. The wolves have a banner that shows an eight-pointed star with eight smaller stars at its interstices upon a blue field. The eight points and eight small stars indicate the diversity of their bands, while the blue field symbolizes the sky or heavens under which they roam.

     The dragons, however, have a brown banner with a single green ash leaf in its middle. The single leaf denotes their individual and often loner nature, and the brown suggests the Earth itself and their connection to understanding the material plane with an eye toward mastering it. The green of the leaf suggests their dedication to healing and making the world a better place for all beings. Some have thought that the wolves are basically extroverts and the dragons introverts but we expect that they are still a number of variations of extrovert and introvert among those who have chosen these different paths.

     Mostly, however, these elves are bards, combining the magic of poetry and music as a tool for influencing the hearts of those who hear them. In fact, while they do prefer to keep their elven nature hidden from Mankind, they have been known to travel about the land individually or in small bands as minstrels, playing minor venues and gigs. Of course, their music and poetry is enchanted and enchanting and it is in this way that they act to transform humanity toward the greater light of understanding of mutual tolerance and harmony. They see their role mostly as that of inspiring Mankind and others who encounter them, and their bardic performances subconsciously encourage individuals to lead better lives and treat all others with courtesy and fairness.

     The Klyntåpa have a king who, with his advisors, considers all important issues that relate to the people overall. But for the most part, the Klyntåpa elves look out for thems’elves and each other. Their king carries a wand made from the branch of a silver birch tree, which is then plated with silver that has a moonstone prominent just below the grip. He is thus sometimes called The Silver One, while his advisors are sometimes referred to as The Maples. Together, as a guiding body they are known as The Forest. The flag of the Klyntåpa is a combination of the banners of the types of Klyntåpa. It bears an eight pointed star with the eight stars around it, with a single green ash leaf over it at its center. All this is upon a blue background with brown trim that looks a good deal like lichen and goes around the border of the flag.

     While the Klyntåpa are a forest dwelling folk, it is said that they are the caretakers of a magical glowing pond that can be found in a cave or grotto at the center of their realm. This is sometimes called the singing cave, or the singing waters, which has led some people to assume that the pond itself makes some sort of singing sound, or perhaps that acoustics of the cave to do, but the truth is the Klyntåpa keep an eternal vigil within this cave and there are at least three singers, at all times, harmonizing enchantments around the pond and thus spreading magic from there out into the world and particularly outward to the Klyntåpa peoples.

     However, the waters of the pond do glow and this seems to have something to do with chemo-luminescent properties of the rock beneath it, although some have suggested there is a certain type of glowworm that breeds in the water that causes this to occur. It is known, however, that people can bathe in the pool without harm, in fact, its waters have been said to be miraculously healing and some are known to drink regularly from its waters.

     Spiritually, the Klyntåpa have very similar beliefs as the elves in Tolkien’s Silmarillion with a single creator who gave issue to all things and the process of creation being in the form of a song. Clearly, when they sing to the magical glowing pond they consider thems’elves as sub-creators or in many ways as stewards of the bounty of creation and are keeping its wonder and magic maintained and functioning perfectly and distributed fairly for all to profit from and enjoy.

 

The Farylynde (pronounced: fair – rill – lynn – dee) elfae of the Ratåtålor (ray – tah – tah – lore) tribe can nearly always be found living in the mountains in the area of waterfalls. In many ways, you could say that their homes and villages cascade down the mountains alongside of the water’s flow. They are an elven folk but very much like the ancient fae or sidhe folk in their way and they place blessings and enchantment’s in the waters so as they flow down into the worlds of Man and the normal folk they serve to heal and enlighten them. Although, alas, mankind is all to eager to pollute those waters and dilute the pure magic of the Ratåtålor with the madness of the modern world.

     The Ratåtålor have a Queen who organizes their society and seeks to bring prosperity to her people in all that she does. She is known as Queen Sage since she is quite wise, but also because everywhere she goes her attendants burn sage and waft it around to purify the area before her arrival. Her crown is made each day of lavender plants woven together into a circlet. And she, like nearly all of the Ratåtålor, is tattooed from head to toe with sigils, elven runes and various other magic symbols and enchantments.

     The Ratåtålor, also, frequently have chains dangling from their ears, or from their ear to their nose or from ear to ear. They are a quite wondrous people and can move smoothly and blend among the dark elfin, the Goth pixie folk, the steam punk fae and even among biker orcs, trolls, grimlins and goblins if they feel a need or desire to do so.

     These elfae folk further have a custom of tattooing a white dot, rather like the red dot the Hindus put on their foreheads, to represent their third eye. Sometimes, as the individual elfae advances in their mastery and adeptship, this white dot will be extended into some rune or sigil to signify their advancement on the path. It is said that rather than tattooing this dot on her forehead, their queen is selected because she is born with the symbol on her brow.

     The flags and banners of the Ratåtålor usually show a mountain with a waterfall upon a dark blue background with white fringe. In front of the waterfall is a seven-pointed elven star and above the waterfall is a crescent moon turned upward that has water flowing from its cup and streaming down upon the mountain. There are dragonflies on either side of the moon, just above the mountain, fluttering about. The Ratåtålor sometimes refer to this as the Dragon Moon flag. Although, others have been known to call it the Moon Dragon flag, and sometimes the Water Dragon flag and others still have titled it the Dragons Flying banner.

     Spiritually, the Ratåtålor usually associate with the ancient goddesses of Norse and Celtic mythology and the ancient fae goddesses. They see their queen as being one or other of these goddesses incarnate, changing goddess form with the phases of the Moon, and flowing from one energy to another as the water flows and falls. For water tends downward, and the goddess and their queen give unto their people just as the waterfall gives life to the land.

     As one might expect, the villages of the Ratåtålor are filled with dragonflies flying about adding beauty to their realm. But, the Ratåtålor also have a very strong association with the raccoon folk and you will commonly find raccoons here and there in their villages at night and the Ratåtålor often leave food out for them and sometimes even have feeding bowls, with water by them (since raccoons are very hygiene oriented and wash their hands after eating), in their homes so the raccoons can come in and help themselves.

     The Ratåtålor say that they originally came from Andromeda ages go, but that is so far back that it is hard now to speak of their life there save to say that they were beings of light that descended into the material world and sought incarnation upon the Earth for spiritual reasons.

 

 

Excerpts from Section Two: Faeries and Fae Tribes

The Namaynfa (pronounced nay – may – in – fah) faeries of the Novarili (no – vair – rye – lie) nation generally find that living in woodlands around a lake or large pond is most conducive to their magic and their happiness. They find the combination of the forest and the lake waters to be soothing and healing.

     They are elemental magicians, and while they are also adept herbalists and grow medicinal plants everywhere, most of the magic they do centers around the evocation of the four elemental forms and their blending (see The Elements of Elven Magic by the Silver Elves). Their magic also involves the use of quartz crystals in various forms, and you can find these, often in enormous sizes about their realm. In fact, most often around their central lake or body of water, you will find at least four huge quartz geodes placed to represent the four directions. Sometimes you will find slightly smaller crystals, but still very large, at the midpoints between them. Thus these represent the midpoints between directions, such as SSE or NNW but also the merging of connection of the elements. But they also represent the solstices and the equinoxes and their between points.

     These faeries also seem to have a fondness of pearls and mother of pearl shells. You will not only find many of these here and there about their land, in their homes, gardens and along the various paths, but they also wear a good deal of mother of pearl jewelry, enchanted, of course. And while medicinal plants grow wild in their demesne, one may also discover fields of bluebells surrounding their region. The Namaynfa say that these flowers ring or sing when strangers approach their realm.

     And while there are a variety of trees in their realm, Rowans, Lilacs and Willow trees are particularly abundant. Yet, one may also find groves of birch trees for the birch trees figure into their enchantments and often have sigils upon them, not carved but grown naturally and the Namaynfa see these as signs and communications from the spirit world. They sometimes wander among the young trees to observe what signs have grown upon them. In this way they become familiar with the particular tree and its especial powers.

     The Namaynfa have a queen who is seen as being a goddess or a representative of the Shining Ones upon the Earth, sent to help, heal and guide them in their enchantments and aid in their effort toward personal development and attainment. Mostly by virtue of her example, but also by the enchantments that radiate naturally from her being. For the Namaynfa value many things but most of all they value the unique and eccentric and encourage every individual to develop hir own s’elf to the fullest possible in hir (her/his) own way. They say even the trees may look the same to the untrained eyes, but if you look deeper you will find they are each individual unto their own s’elf, similar but unique.

     It is said that their queen wears a crown that has a mother of pearl shell in the center above her forehead. This shell has a small amethyst quartz at the center, and from that, extending along the sides toward the back of her head, are golden and silver filigree birch leaves, descending in size as they approach her ears. It is rumored that when someone has accomplished something particularly significant that uplifts the Namaynfa people, or the individual has shown true advancement upon their own path, she will give them a pearl — white for helping one’s people, black or sometimes pink for s’elf development to signify their accomplishment and evolution. They call these the Pearls of Wisdom.

     As to Mankind and the normal folk, the Namaynfa are quite kindly, doing all that they can to help, heal, encourage and enlighten all that come to them. No sincere soul is turned away. Of course, most of those folks don’t recognize that these are faerie folk or that they are being aided by the fae but that is okay with the Namaynfa for the most part. Some of the Namaynfa may declare their fae natures publicly here in the modern age when it is somewhat safer to do so, but most of them are quite happy to just be their own s’elves in the world, expressing thems’elves fully and letting others have whatever opinions, however uninformed they might be, about them. As the Namaynfa say: other people’s opinions do not affect who we are, only how they see us.

     Their flag is blue with a yellow sun on the left, a white crescent moon on the right and a birch tree bending to the right as though being blown by the wind in the center. The tree’s roots are showing, rather like a Celtic Tree of Life symbol. The Sun represents fire, the Moon represents water, the tree represents both air (being blown) and earth, its roots. The deep blue background denotes the sea, the sky and the night.

 

The Nåmåja (pronounced: nah – mah – jah) tribe of the Wafrodatym (way – fro – day – tim) Faerie Empire are very loving and kindly faeries, who like to dwell in the forested mountains near by waterfalls and lakes and spend their days seeking knowledge, especially knowledge on how to help and heal the world and all who are in it.

     However, one should not think that these are just ‘airy-fairy’ folk, who are oblivious to the dangers of the world, for they will defend thems’elves if need be and live in the high mountains, not only because of their love for them but because they wish to be away from most of the tumult of the world with its incessant struggles and conflicts and people rushing here and there doing not much of anything, for purposes that seem unimportant really despite the passion that the worldly assign to them. It is, as Shakespeare said, “Much Ado about Nothing.” Or so it surely seems to these faerie folk as it does to most elfae sorts.

     The Wafrodatym have a Queen, who guides their world shedding her blessings upon her people and encouraging them to be ever better as individuals and as a people. The Wafrodatym don’t seem to have a flag or banner to represent them. However, wherever the Queen goes a faerie follows her with a pole that has wings upon it, somewhat like the caduceus that is the traditional symbol of Hermes that has two snakes winding around a winged pole or wand, only without the snakes. They call this her wand and staff, while she hers’elf is referred to as Her Winged (wing-ed) Ladyship. This staff seems to be both a symbol of her office and of her Empire overall.

     Magically, these faeries mostly practice a form of Faery Witchcraft with an emphasis on the acquisition and attainment of knowledge not only from study but from experimentation and from divination. They are ever exploring and getting to know the various planes and dimensions that exist in the Universe hopping from one to another. And since Faerie can be, as Tolkien said, a perilous realm, they continually surround thems’elves with an aura of protection. For these can be dangerous worlds that they explore, much more dangerous in the normal world of Mankind, although that is surely dangerous enough as it is.

     Spiritually, they don’t have any common religion or spiritual beliefs as far as we can tell. In their minds, if there are gods, they are elsewhere and of no real concern to these good faeries. For them, Faerie and its power and magic and Nature and its power and majesty are all they really need to know about the world of spirit. For those two worlds which are in many ways really one world, Faerie and Nature, are charged by Spirit and filled with spirits. However, if they happened to come across this or that god or goddess in their explorations they would surely be polite about it. Like most Seelie Fae, courtesy is a significant feature of their culture and their interaction with each other.

     It is known that these faeries have a great magical treasure, which is called The Wand Invisible or sometimes The Wand Ethereal. It is passed on from one of these witch faeries, or faery witches, really, to another over time both as a significator of great power and achievement but it also whispers secrets to the individual faerie about faery magic and about that individual’s personal spirit and development.

     Once, the faery has absorbed the wand’s energy, they gift it to another of the fae folk who will then be advanced by the teachings of this wand. It is rather like a private tutor and some therefore call this wand the Great Wise One.

     Once an individual has absorbed this wand’s power, they no longer need to have it around, for it has truly become a part of them and they of it. For their knowledge and experience is added to the wand’s knowledge and passed on to the next individual. Thus, both the faerie and the wand gain from this exchange and the wand just gets more and more knowledgeable, wise and powerful. By the time it comes around to an individual again, if it does, it has even greater power and wisdom to impart. Sometimes, they call this passing of the wand from one to another, the Journey of Wisdom and Knowledge Ascending.

 

Excerpts from Section Three: Otherkin [and Otherworldly] Tribes

The Loardar (pronounced low – air – dare) spirits of the Spirata (spy – ray – tah) order were once dragons but as dragons they became extinct upon the Earth and, alas, some other planets. However, some of them rose to the realms of the Shining Ones after that and, in fact, many of them are at the level of development and evolutionary progress that the Shining Ones call the Dragon level, which still entails an earthly existence in fae humanoid form but with greater magical powers and enlightened awareness. They are, indeed, dragons (or powers) upon the Earth helping to promote healing, awareness and enlightened behavior among the mass of the beings here.

     Most of these dragon level Shining Ones have come from other star systems, and upon reaching a certain level of enlightenment thems’elves were assigned to the Earth to assist with the great push toward enlightenment. Some of the Spirata, however, came here from other star systems ages ago, first manifesting as dragons upon this planet and later, once this became uninhabitable (due to hostility) to dragons, and yet having developed to an advanced degree of spiritual realization, they took on fae humanoid bodies to continue their work on this planet. Others of dragon kind, not quite ready to leave their dragon bodies, migrated to other planets to continue their evolution in dragon form.

     These frequent migrations through the star systems developed in the Spirata a sort of wanderlust. They are travelers now by inclination and by necessity, since they don’t always know when they might be needed elsewhere. Thus, they roam from region to region upon the Earth, spreading light as best they may wherever they go. Therefore, you could encounter one of these beings anywhere upon the Earth or elsewhere if you happen to venture into space.

     As far as social organization or government, they are essentially anarchists. It is true that there are Shining Ones who are more advanced than they but these higher beings don’t give the Spirata orders so much as point out what needs to be done and see who volunteers to do it. Their missions are not assigned to them exactly, but offered to them. They represent opportunities to serve and help and heal and in doing so develop upon their own spiritual path. The Spirata might therefore be seen as independent agents taking on whatever mission they choose that is available, although if they can think of something better to do, a more effective way to help, they are encouraged to do that as well. They are what might be called S’elf Starters of an advanced degree. And thus, they are Initiates or those who initiated things.

     The crest of the Spirata Order displays a swan gliding with the sun above it and stars on either side. Beneath it are a pair of crossed swords with a morning star upright between them. The background is navy blue and there is an ivy vine, with roses upon it that are on fire, that entwines around the border.

     The swan represents the essential dignity and grace of their members. And the stars indicate the Universal nature of their work. However, the sun above it all denotes that their work is carried out upon the Earth plane, upon material planes and that they are not on some far off plane detached from earthly existence, sending love and healing to those who need it. Rather, they are right here with those who are struggling.

     The crossed swords indicate their advanced powers, crossed because the Spirata use force as little as possible, therefore it is force restrained, while the morning star or mace at the center suggests that if push comes to shove they have the power to move things by force, but they’d rather not have to do so. The ivy suggests the interconnection of life that is behind all that they do and the fiery roses the benefits and beauty of enlightenment, saying essentially that spiritual advancement is not dull but really quite thrilling.

     Of course, being Shining Ones, these folks understand that the Divine Magic underlies and exists as a potentiality in all things, finding its expression in the individual as each one advances toward hir (his/her) own divinity. So it is that the Spirata honor the Shining Ones who are more spiritually evolved than they, for those Shining Ones are god like beings, often perceived by those upon the Earth and elsewhere as being gods and goddesses, or as great powers manifesting in the Universe and bringing enlightenment, which is to say ecstatic revelation, to all who are open and who are ready.

     Naturally, their relationship toward Mankind is one of healing and consists of an effort to educate and uplift Men and their kind. However, it should be understood that the Spirata see the all of life and all beings as carrying the Divine Magic within them, waiting to be realized and they don’t see Humanity (as a species) as being more important than cats, or dogs or fish swimming in the sea or the trees stretching toward the Sunlight and reaching down toward the waters of the Earth. All are destined to awaken and realize their own essential nature, to fulfill thems’elves perfectly and find a place for their own magic in the Universe in harmony with all others and blessed and graced by the joy of realization.

 

The Uarfurme (pronounced you – air – few-r -me) elfae of the Bowaarno (bo – way – air – no) tribe are centaurs who have unicorn horns, so unicorn centaurs. They usually live near the ocean, liking to run along the beaches, for that reminds them of the vast star fields from which they originally came to the Earth. They frequently abide in woodlands and forests often among manzanita and madrone trees near the sea.

     These folks love mobility, love running and, in their elfae human form, love riding bicycles and roller blades and skateboards and other instruments of movement that are powered by their humanoid bodies. They are not so much for engines but prefer their own power and control of the instrument of motion, which they think of almost as one would consider a musical instrument. They play the bicycle, so to speak, as one might play an oboe.

     In fact, their great magical treasures center upon these types of vehicles. Their own bicycles, roller blades, etc., are all enchanted and they can do amazing things with them that wouldn’t normally seem possible. Even when they step into the dimensions where they can assume their true unicorn centaur forms, you may still find them on magical roller blades or enchanted bicycles. It is a sight to see, for certain, almost like a dream or a hallucination.

     While they are adept at grammarye and enchantment, their main magic has to do with flowing with the energies of the Earth, Moon and Stars. They call this Surfing the Waves of Reality. For while their connection to Mankind and the normal folk is quite friendly, overall, these elfae like to stir things up, turn the world on its head and by doing so inspire the Normals to think for themselves, color beyond the lines and the Bowaarno, in that way, see thems’elves as transforming the world. In the minds of the Bowaarno, the Earth, Stars, Moon and all else in the Universe are in constant motion and it is best if we, as individuals, understand this fact and stop clinging and trying to hold on and keep everything the same and instead let go and move with the flow of Nature and Life. Constantly swimming against the current of Life and the Universe, just wears people out.

     The Bowaarno have a democratic society. They elect representatives if needed but mostly, not being a large group of people, they just vote on each issue directly. They have no particular religious beliefs other than they know that there are more powerful spirits in the Universe that are on various other dimensions than they are and they are aware, respectful and cautious in dealing with these beings. They know of the great waves and the power of the ocean and the tremendous waves of energy and power that flows through the Universe itself and they ever keep these in mind as they weave and bob their way through the world.

     When they first came to Earth, ages ago, most likely during the Second Root Race of Mankind, they settled in the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa, where they were free to run along the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea delighting in their freedom. Even when taking on humanoid form in order to continue on this plane to achieve greater realization and advancement as spirits, they have still retained the look of the Ancient Arabic peoples with whom they first interacted.

     There are actually three clans of the Bowaarno. There is the Dolphin Clan. These are the ones that most love being near the ocean and feel if they don’t get salt water on thems’elves from time to time they will shrivel up inside. There is the Unicorn Clan whose unicorn horns are larger and longer than others and they are quite proud, even somewhat vain about this. And there is also the Penguin Clan, who are the most amazing swimmers and surfers and who often live in more polar regions in the far north and far south of the Planet. These folk like to swim in the ice-cold waters in the winter time and feel invigorated by doing so. Some have also said about them that they love to wear tuxedos, but whether that is actually true or is just a joke made at their expense, we are uncertain.

 

The Toclara (pronounced: ntoe – clair – rah) guild of the Yåvarkyn tribe are Starkin who came from a place that was rather like Atlantis or Lemuria but on another planet in another star system, although they don’t entirely remember where. If you were to ask them they would say ‘somewhere in Space’, for they have embraced the Earth and their life here with fervor.

     They look rather like a cross between what Tolkien would have called Hobbits and the Vulcans of Star Trek, only with the emphasis on the hobbit or what we Silver Elves would call the Brownie or Gnome side of their nature. However, they are not so strictly logical as Vulcans, nor quite as food oriented as Hobbits are reputed to be.

     They first arrived upon the Earth in Japan and then spread out into China, Tibet and other parts of Asia and were deeply influenced by the Buddhists of that time. In the course of things, they traveled across Eurasia and encountered the Dragons of Western Europe, who were being hunted down and persecuted, killed for their hoards and treasures and all and all feared for their predatory nature.

     In fact, these Starkin realized quite quickly that most of these dragons were really only trying to protect the Earth. The dragons often established themselves in caves to keep miners from digging into and desecrating the mountains and they sought to protect the Earth’s inner resources, since Mankind was forever attempting to tear up the Earth and destroy it to get to its riches. Some of these dragons went so far as to attack men and take back the jewels and treasures they had stolen from the Earth and Men, in their turn, concluded these Dragons did so out of greed. In fact, they were just ascribing their own greed upon the Dragons.

     The Yåvarkyn Starkin realized this fact right away and while they most heartily agreed with the dragons, with whom they formed a permanent alliance, about the need for protecting Gaia, the Earth Mother, they also sought to persuade them to do so in a somewhat less aggressive fashion. It is the Yåvarkyn way to always help those who are of good heart and intention, especially to assist those who seek to protect the Earth for they have embraced the Earth fully and completely as their Mother. Like converts to a new faith who are even more devoted than those raised in the faith, the Yåvarkyn having come from elsewhere adore the Earth with a deep and abiding passion.

     So, it is that the Yåvarkyn began to live at the base of mountains, usually among the yews, oaks, pines and mulberry trees, beneath the caves of the dragons as a sort of protective barrier between Men and Dragon folk. Alas, their attempts to keep Mankind from ripping up the Earth for its riches has not been entirely successful, however, they still seek to enlighten Men about our (everyone’s) symbolic relationship with the Earth and the need to preserve and protect it. The Yåvarkyn are a ‘green’ people, as they say. They love being surrounded by living Nature and many of them wear green frequently and simply blend into the greenery around them.

     Spiritually, the Starkin believe in the Light of Creation, what we Silver Elves call the Divine Magic, that shines through all things. Socially, they have a sort of pirate democracy, which is to say they have a charter that they abide by and they elect a king, queen or ruler according to the particular needs of the time. There is no set length that the leader will be in charge except usually it is for the duration of whatever he or she was elected to do. During hir (his/her) period of rule the leader usually wears the Crown of Lapis Lazuli and the Amulet of Labradorite and passes these on to the new leader when hir term is completed. At those times when they have no king or queen, these gems are returned to the Dragons for safekeeping, although the Yåvarkyn say that they are returning these jewels to the Earth where they belong, the dragons are only the Keepers. In that way, their leaders are reminded that their power is born from and borrowed from the Earth.

 

The Shidorfyn (pronounced: shy – door – fin) clan of the Havoral (hay – vour – ale) Empire are dragon fae who prefer to live in small woodland cities often among Elderberry trees, Willows, Cedars and Dark and Red Oaks. They look somewhat similar to elves or pixies, however, their skin has a dragon-like or snake-like feel to it and they do shed their skin annually and take on a whole new skin that they call The Luster, because it is so bright, shiny when it is new. Their old skins are often fashioned into various items, such as bags and purses. This may seem odd to some people but the Shidordyn waste almost nothing.

     The Havoral Empire is a sort of constitutional theocratic monarchy. They have a King and Queen who have the final say about things but they also have elected representatives from every clan and they further have individuals who are considered holy and very advanced spiritually that counsel and advise the king and queen about how they might proceed in any circumstance or concerning any issue before them.

     The Shidorfyn originally came from a dimension that sat at the center of various other dimensions, like one of those places where four or five states come together, and was thus used as a portal or threshold to other worlds. They called this place The Ways or sometimes The Link and other times The Way-through. The Shidorfyn came to Earth through a portal from another dimension linked to The Way-through, however, something shifted in the Universe and they have to wait until the Way opens again. This may not be for some time, although their dimensional astrologers seem to disagree thus far about when it may be exactly. Such things are not easy to calculate, especially since they don’t remember this happening before.

     The Shidorfyn do a variety of magics; however, Druidry, Sorcery and Weather Witchery seem to be prominent among them. Their Druids study nearly everything in Nature, especially the trees and tree magic, while it is their Sorcerers, along with their Astrologers who are attempting to find the way back to The Ways. However, like Faerie, The Way-through can be a dangerous place to be and not all the Shidorfyn are eager to return. On the other hand, considering this world and its current condition, they are not sure it makes much difference. Others of their kind are of the mind that they can establish a Way-through here, with just a bit of magic. They are, after all, dragon fae and have advanced understanding of Portals and Thresholds. And being Weather Witches they can make things very pleasant here, at least as far as the weather goes.

     As to Mankind, they are generally inclined to help enlighten Men, however, they would prefer to do this at a distance from them, using magic to gently massage Man toward a better world. At the same time they feel that Man is ‘rather dense’ and therefore somewhat hard to influence. They do point out that once moved toward a better way of being, Men are unlikely to change again anytime soon. In the meantime, the Shidorfyn hide away from the vast majority of Men as best they may and pursue their own lives while wishing Man the best or as they sometimes put it ‘the best elsewhere’.

     Men for their part, who have little knowledge and almost no belief anymore concerning the Shidorfyn, once called them the Silents, or the Quiet Ones. Even other fae folk tend to think of them this way because the Shidorfyn are very psychic individuals, and almost always use telepathy among thems’elves to communicate. Therefore, it appears from the outside that they almost never talk to each other.

     The Shidorfyn do have four magical treasures. There is the Staff of the King, which identifies him as the Grand Wizard, there is the Dagger of the Queen, which signifies her power as the War Duchess, there is the Sacred Chalice of the Holy Ones, and the Book of Laws of the People. The Staff of the King provides him with the wisdom to guide his people, the Dagger of the Queen enables her to organize any defensive activity and gives her strategic understanding, the Chalice makes sacred anything that its contents are poured upon and the Book of Laws ensures the rights and freedom of the people. Some say that it is not the individuals as King or Queen who rule but really the power and wisdom of these treasures that are passed down from generation to generation.

“The Philosophy of Elfin Folke”

March 26, 2020

PanphotoCircle
Illustration by Wahaba Nuit Cat

“. . . when left to ourselves (faeries, pixies, elves, and our kin), we most prefer to celebrate Spirit by Dancing the night away and chanting the names of the Stars.”

During this time of “Staying Home” due to the Coronavirus bunker down period, we are typing out to share with you some of our old The Silver Elves articles from the 80s that we published in Circle Network News back when it was a very popular go-to Wiccan-Pagan publication (newsprint copies published prior to Winter of 1986 are now archived and unavailable to the public). After we Silver Elves migrated to the Utmost West, we don’t have the entire collection of all our published articles now archived from Circle. We do have a number of the later ones after 1986, but you can still buy these as available back issues from Circle Network News and Circle Magazine here, so we will leave those to you to discover.

One of our articles prior to the Winter issue of 1986 is, “The Philosophy of Elfin Folke,” and it is about our elven perspective of faith and religion. And while it outlines The Elven Way, it is a little prior to our creation and use of the term The Elven Way (for our more recent description of The Elven Way also see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), although you can see that we are already beginning to talk about the way of elves as “our way.” Hope you enjoy reading it!

 

The Philosophy of Elfin Folke

     We Elfin Folke are by our natures eclectic. We seek to understand and learn from all experiences and all folk, and all we learn we translate into our elfin world view. The pathways through Faerie are both various and ever evolving; however, there is not nor will there ever be an elfin religion! We are a spiritual people though not in the sense that many often mean it, but “spirited” like a wild mare or a deer.

     The Faery faith is exactly what it means: the Magic and power of Faith in Faerie; a trust that the good, the true, and the beauty of Nature will prevail in time over wickedness, deception, and “image”; a faith that intelligence will rise above ignorance and fairness over prejudice. We never proselytize for our ways are our own; those who join us in them sincerely and freely are truly of us, but for many others, it is surely not the way.

     We believe in the Divine [Magic] and have experienced it in many ways in our lives. Each of the elfin folk has their own individual and shared totems, archetypes, and deities to whom we relate. However, for these elves in particular, we feel that the Deities neither solicit worship nor desire to be worshiped. From our communications with “higher intelligence,” we have come rather to understand that they desire mutual respect. So, what most folks would call their altar, we Silver Elves call a magic table, or sometimes, a stellarphone. We might conceive of our s’elves as being children of the Deities, or we could say that evolutionarily we are the parents and ancestors of the ever more-divine and intelligent beings to come. Being elfin it is easy for us to hold both these views simultaneously, yet we are no more attached to them than good scientists are attached to their hypotheses.

     Since they did not need nor demand our praise (though we often give it), we do not seek praise from others but rather treat all persons with the dignity they deserve just as our elfin Deities [the Shining Ones] treat us. It is because of this that we elfin have no formal hierarchies. Yet, Nature’s hierarchies are ever fluid. Intelligences, like plants, will grow if they are not stifled.

     We understand Divinity in terms of its revelations (revel-elations) that is: truth, happiness, and ecstasy. Divinity is not a being but a potentiality that exists within all beings. Our elfin Deities [the Shining Ones] are beings of higher intelligence yet we relate to them with the same respect we give to all beings, even beings of lesser intelligence – just as the Deities treat us who are of lesser intelligence than they. We seek to emulate their example. We celebrate Divinity [the Magical Divine]. We are ecstatic about the fact that there are Spirits of greater intelligence with whom we can share and learn, for we know this is the key to the future. As the Deities guide, protect, and aid us, so we strive to help others.

     The types of Deities the elfin folk relate to are multitudinous. We commune with trees and tree, and many of us have animal totems. (The Tolkien mythos is rich with such Divine characters.) Yet of all the Deities, the ancient Pan and Mab have touched us most deeply. Still in the name of the Spirit, we have shared communion with all manner of folk. We have attended churches, synagogues, mosques, meetings, meditations, satsongs, rap groups, study groups, therapy groups, and encounter groups to help in the healing of the world. But when left to ourselves (faeries, pixies, elves, and our kin), we most prefer to celebrate Spirit by Dancing the night away and chanting the names of the Stars.

The Elven Way:  The Magical Path of The Shining Ones
By The Silver Elves


“The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known
into the forest of the unknown
illuminated by the glow of the elves.”
(From the cover below)

elvenwaywebThe Elven Way: 
The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

 

Excerpt from Chapter One of The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones by The Silver Elves:
Awakening
“While we’ve often written that faery tales, both ancient and modern, view the faery folk as being ruled by monarchs, this idea is more a reflection of the lives of men and of the world that was and is than a true indication of the Realms of Elfin. This is not to say that there doesn’t exist a Hierarchy in Faery, but that it is important to understand that this Hierarchy is a natural one based on real development and merit and not in the least arbitrary or artificially constructed. All hierarchies, organizations and bureaucracies in the world are a pale attempt to recreate, or in many cases bypass or supersede, this natural hierarchy.”

“The hierarchy of Elfin is a spiritual hierarchy—the hierarchy of illuminated being, of s’elf development of magical maturity—and thus it is the power, of awakened consciousness and expanded and enlightened awareness. Besides the attempts of many to construct this hierarchy in the world, it is also reflected in Nature, where there are hierarchies of intelligence, of knowledge, of personality, beauty, strength, and so forth. While artificial hierarchies tend to be rather strictly structured and unyielding, these natural hierarchies, reflective of the true spiritual hierarchy, are varied and yielding. For instance, while there are general tendencies, we don’t all agree about who is most beautiful or most attractive. It is rather like the question, what is your favorite color? It depends on the individual. So, too, the natural hierarchies are, like the true inner hierarchy, dependent greatly on the individual and their own position in the Universe, their individual tendencies.”

“There is another way that the spiritual hierarchy tends to differ from all artificial hierarchies and even from the hierarchy of Nature. Artificial hierarchies tend to be pyramid schemes with one or a few people on the top and increasing numbers of individuals in various levels below with the greatest number on the bottom. This formula does not tend to change. The one at the top may change. Sometimes, but rarely one’s position on the hierarchy may change, but the structure tends to stay the same. In fact, that is its purpose to reinforce itself and maintain this structure.”

“On the other hand, while the spiritual hierarchy may have more on the bottom than the top at any particular point, the goal and purpose of this hierarchy is to get everyone at the top, to have everyone progress further and further into the realms of Elfin, the realms of radiant enlightenment.”

“We might think of it as a game. In the game of the material world the first ones to reach home win; everyone else is considered a loser. In the spiritual game, we gain points when each one reaches home and our ultimate goal is to get everyone home. Then and only then have we truly won the game.”

“We call it the Elven Way but we could call it the Faerie Way, the Fair Way, the Way of the Fae, the Way of the Shining Ones, or even the Way that begins in your Dreams and ends in the Life Magical.”

“They write of Elven Kingdoms
And Elvish Queendoms, too
And clans and mobs
And bands that throb
And all of this we do.
But most of all we’re family
From littlest to big
From wee folk
To the very great
In shiny velvet rig.
And in that magic family
Love does ever reign
Not queen, nor king or mighty chief
But affection never fain.
For friendship ever rules us
And loyalty sincere
And most of all abiding love
For all whom we hold dear.”

A few places you may view more about The Silver Elves:

Here is an hour-long podcast, in which Zardoa (Michael Love) of the Silver Elves was interviewed in 2019 (please scroll down here and see Episode 1. 5) on his spiritual journey as an elf and about the elven community by Dr. Brandi Estey-Burtt and Dr. Clive Baldwin, for St. Thomas University, the Narratives of Spiritual Identity Project. In the first 16 minutes of the podcast, the researchers discuss their perceptions and research in general about otherkin and elves (this is most interesting) and then the interview with Zardoa follows. You can also down load a transcript below the podcast, but listening is of course far more fruitful.

What are our Elven Instincts and How do we use them in our Elfin Magic?

March 7, 2020

silverflame_2020

“. . . . we elven do not ignore our feelings, and instead seek to understand the difference in our emotions and instinctive feelings. In doing this, we embrace the instinctive feelings related to our true inner Nature (our “Elven Instincts”) and are then able to direct them toward the fulfillment of our dreams. And all that we desire and have missed comes to us at the right time following the radiant silver threads of our inner Nature.”

tiny_green_7star

How do Elves Deal with our Emotions?

     First of all, we elves are not usually portrayed as particularly emotional people. We are most often seen to manifest the saying, ‘Still waters run deep.’ Most often, we are rather calm and serene with an icing of joy upon it. At the same time, we are not noted for being repressed individuals either. We are not hiding our emotions for the most part, we are not repressing them or suppressing them, although we have spent a bit of time, through the years, sublimating them.

     The difference in these activities is that those who repress their emotions often don’t even know or acknowledge the intense feelings that they are having. It all gets stuffed down into the unconscious and under pressure can explode outwardly and often unexpectedly into the world and quite frequently with terrible results. Repressed emotions are like a volcano that exists beneath the surface but no one realizes it is there until it forces its way to the surface.

     Suppression generally involves a more conscious effort to hold one’s emotions in check. In that sense, it is a superior psychological strategy to repression but still holds the possibility of just bursting out when one is under pressure. It’s more like a volcano you know exists, but it’s still there and quiet most of the time. You just don’t know when it might erupt and then cause havoc.

     Sublimation involves the transference of emotional energy, such as anger, into something more productive. One of the simplest examples is of those individuals who count to ten to calm thems’elves down. Some folks clean their house, others work out or play sports, we elves usually make magic. This, of course, does not take the place of truly dealing with our emotions. But if we can use our emotions to drive our magic in a positive way like wishing for what we truly need, then we may be at least making some movement toward a more healing environment or even toward contact with kindred that will help us. While doing magic to deal with our emotions may in some way be a distraction from feeling into our suffering, it can be a very important positive step.

 

What are our Elven Instincts?

     It is important not to run from our emptiness and aloneness as individuals. Denying our deepest feelings, that part of us connected to our soulful being, and pretending we don’t feel something is surely not natural and thus not really in accordance with the way elves tend to do things. Ours is the natural way, only not Nature running amok but Nature tended into a beautiful elfin garden. We are not only natural beings but supernatural beings. Nature perfecting itself.

     The elven spirit is oriented toward becoming as natural and evolved as possible in whatever form we take (in whatever dimension we inhabit). We elves, therefore, are oriented to accept our deepest inner Nature in the human form we have presently incarnated in and so have a propensity toward an awareness of our instinctual feelings and the goal of obtaining consciousness of body-mind unity. In that way, we are evolved in our consciousness from perhaps the majority of humans on Earth at this time. We could even say we are “Super Humans” or evolved Humans, not just human in form but ‘humane’ in consciousness and action. This does not mean that normal humans cannot evolve or that there are not already evolved Humans, as there surely are many and many more to come in the ancient future. Many elves feel we are incarnated in human bodies to help humans learn to accept who they truly are, to be in touch with their individual inner Nature and to evolve benevolently as a species. That is surely part of what drives us to incarnate among them. Our own development is another yet connected element in this.

     So, you may ask, what is this inner Nature that is connected and felt within our instinctive feelings, that cannot be changed by our thoughts and the conditioning of society? What is this inner Nature that the elven spirit is drawn to follow? This is most easily understood by the distinction between emotions and instinctive feelings. Emotions are most often mind based, which is to say they are a strong feeling energy aroused by some idea or notion (often a negative idea about our own inner being), quite often by an idea that has no truth, validity or actual connection to reality. These emotions are the feelings that can be triggered in our awareness, and are red flags that we still have some unresolved issues from our past to embrace and work out in our consciousness. We sometimes call these “emotional hauntings” (If you are interested in learning more about dealing with emotional hauntings and following your gut instincts to a higher awareness of your inner nature, see: http://instinctualgutfeelings.blogspot.com/2013/04/following-gut-instincts-to-awareness-of.html).

     On the otherhand, instinctive feelings are deeper and less mind involved than emotions. They originate from the gut or Hara, and on a purely intuitive and instinctive level they have little to do with thinking at all. Please be clear that we are not talking here about other animal instincts, but of Human instincts related to Human inner Nature. In a way, it would be more accurate to call them “elven instincts” as these Human or Humane (superhuman) instincts (pure gut feeling energy) are always calling us to be closer to our true Nature and in harmony with Nature all around us. This is why we Silver Elves say that if a person wishes to be an elf, they can become an elf by becoming more and more aware of their own inner nature, the instinctive feeling guide within them, and begin to follow the Elven Way quite naturally. Sadly, many humans choose to ignore their most Humane aspect, their inner instinctive Nature. But never the less, our Human or Humane (superhuman) instincts, our elven instincts, are never completely atrophied and are always sending us signals to guide us to find a balance between feeling loved and connected to others (acceptance through soul connection) and in being in control of our own responses to life (freedom of spirit). These two needs of the soul and spirit must be constantly in balance and too much of one without the other leaves us feeling empty. If they are in balance, then we feel full of life (just check your gut!) and our vitality flows freely, with body and mind united and in harmony with all of Nature. And instinctive feelings are generally quieter, even though deeper, purer and magically more powerful and enduring than emotions. Instinctive feelings are like planets and stars, while emotions are like comets and asteroids.

 

How can elves use our “Elven Instincts” in our Magic?

     We can empower our magic with emotion, but that is for very short term magics, usually. Instinctive feelings are for enduring magics — the deep magics that come from the center of our being and flow outwardly into the world. Emotional magic is more likely to cause a big stir in the short run but it is instinctive feeling magic that usually produces lasting results.

     When you run into conflict and feel very emotional about it, you can blast your opponent with emotion-based magic and that can be quite effective, but it is usually only effective for severing relationships, it is not very good for keeping them going. Although, passion can be a great way to start something, but in some ways, passion is really like burning rubber before you race off in your car. In the long run, it is true feeling that will keep a relationship going.

     And if you long and hunger for relationship, feel quite alone and empty, it is just those instinctive feelings that can be used to Call Your Others, for the feelings of aloneness and emptiness contain the possibility of togetherness and fulfillment. Pour that longing into your spell as you Sound the Call of Gathering and Union.

     We know, some people say that you should ignore those empty feelings and fake it till you make it. That is what most of the normal world does, and pretends everything is just fine right up to the point when it all goes sideways and then they get very emotional about it all. But we elven do not ignore our feelings, and instead our elven spirit calls us to seek to understand the difference in our emotions and instinctive feelings. In doing this, we embrace the instinctive feelings related to our true inner Nature (our “elven Instincts”) and are then able to direct them toward the fulfillment of our dreams. And all that we desire and have missed comes to us at the right time following the radiant silver threads of our inner Nature.

Need an Elven Enchantment Spell as a Call of Gathering and Union?

Pour your feelings into the following enchantment spell, dear Kindred, repeat every day and as often as you feel a deep longing:

“Wishing, wishing fervently

All I wish will come to me

Success (or health or a friend or a lover, a home or a job, etc) is mine for all to see

Arriving now quite readily.”

 

(In Arvyndase, the magical language of The Silver Elves)

“Feljdas, feljdas alfevla

Wyl El felj yon koso va el

Reda da el’na fro wyl va ten

Komaldas mat ven anitla.”

 

(Pronunciation)

Feel-j – dace, feel-j – dace ale – feev – lah

Will Eel feel-j yone co – so vah eel

Re – dah dah eel’nah fro will vah teen

Co – male – dace mate veen a – night – lah.

 

“The Elves say: Our lives are like ships at sea. We may not have control over the waves, tides and other circumstances we face, but we need to have mastery over the ship we are sailing.”

Elven Psychology:
Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary
and Esoteric Purposes of Mental Disorders

by The Silver Elves.

Here is an excerpt from Elven Psychology on instincts and evolutionary development:
“. . . .  this emphasis upon the symbolic and upon the significance of mind over feelings is an evolutionary development associated with the fifth root race and eventually evolves into a more intuitive (elven) approach to life. In other words, this and many of the other disorders are a natural (in their unnatural way) step toward a greater and more developed humanity. Once the new mental function for human beings with the emphasis on symbols is developed and expressed, mankind will see the necessity for once again bringing in the awareness of their feelings/instincts which have been repressed and will then unite the body and mind, opening the ability for higher intuition with a true evolutionary advance. That the elves tend to be a bit ahead of many other races in regards to this development is only to point out, as folklore and fiction have often done, that we are the Elder/Eldar race and thus a little bit ahead of the rest of humanity in the process of evolution. But they will catch up in time, although by that time, most of us will have moved on.”

“Elfin doesn’t just await us, it also reaches out to us, sounding Its Call, which echoes in the hearts and minds of all true Elfae folk.”
—Ancient Elfin Knowledge

 

If you enjoyed the article above on using our feelings in elven magic and following the path of elfin, then we suggest that you might wish to look into some of our Silver Elves books on magic like The Keys to Enchantment: Mastery of the Faerie Light Through the Portals of Manifestation and also particularly Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic. Faerie Unfolding is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning we Silver Elves’ views on the nature of the Divine and its expression and manifestation into the world as seen from those cultures that are most connected to and historically expressive of Elven Culture. It is a further development from our other books (which we also suggest if you have not already read them) — Through the Mists of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven;   The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones;  and Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical Children — and opens the adept elfin enchanter to new understandings of the Unfolding of Faerie and its magic into the world and our part, as elfin beings, in its expression. We Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples.

Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic

 

“We are not elves primarily because we think we are elves, but because we feel elven and thus know ours’elves to be elves and we express that feeling with our entire being, and in that way manifesting it into the world.”
—Old Elven Knowledge

Does the Elven Way require vows?

February 23, 2020
Zardoa_hood_blog
“. . . it is that in our opinion, such vows should arise, if they ever do, spontaneously. They should spring from the heart and always be freely taken, if at all. There is no obligation to dedicate ones’elf to the Elven Way. We don’t have a cult or religion, or membership fees or dues, rules, dress codes, doctrines, dogmas, obligatory rituals, or authorities. Although it is so that we do often have charismatic individuals whose magic and enchantment and progress upon the Elven Way inspires us to do greater things ours’elves and increase our own power and potency while simultaneously empowering our others.”

     In late 1975, while we were visiting our sisters of the Fox River Vortex of the Elf Queen’s Daughters, we, with another sister, dedicated ours’elves to the Elven Way and the Path of the Elven and swore to the spirits, Nature and the Universe that we would continue on and endure on the path as long as we were able. There had been a gathering and a bonfire the night before for there had been nearly two dozen elves and elf friends together at the Fox River Vortex, including elves who had traveled down from their vortex in Minnesota and most of them had spent the night sleeping over. Every bed and all the couches and some of the floor had been occupied.

     The fire had mostly burnt out at that point in the morning, although we probably could have fanned a few hidden embers had we desired, but what we did was take the ashes from the night’s fire and anointed each other as we took our vows.

     These vows, however, where utterly spontaneous. No one demanded that we take them, and in fact, our elven sister Melryn, of the Fox River Elves, chuckled a bit when we told her what we had done and embraced us. We made up the words as we went along and the whole ceremony, if you would call it that, took us about a minute to create and perform. These vows had sprung from a heartfelt wish to dedicate ours’elves to the Elven Path, and were a response to the great joy we felt in being with and knowing our elven kindred and the delight of being awakened.

     So, it is that in our opinion, such vows should arise, if they ever do, spontaneously. They should spring from the heart and always be freely taken, if at all. There is no obligation to dedicate ones’elf to the Elven Way. We don’t have a cult or religion, or membership fees or dues, rules, dress codes, doctrines, dogmas, obligatory rituals, or authorities and elves are compelled by their own Nature to be true to their own s’elves. Although it is so that we do often have charismatic individuals whose magic and enchantment and progress upon the Elven Way inspires and thus guides us to do greater things ours’elves and increase our own power and potency while simultaneously empowering our others.

     We stay upon the Elven Way because it gives us joy and draws to us to those who are truly our kindred. Of course, it sometimes draws others as well. Others who are not quite ready to develop thems’elves. Are not prepared for the rigors of this Path (and it can be quite rigorous). Who seek personal advantage and only give lip service to the inner essence of the Elven Way. But that is to be expected. Nearly everyone who has even a bit of Elven Spirit in them, will be aroused, at least a bit, by encountering us. We give them what we may, what they can absorb and often a bit more until their cup overfloweth, and then we continue on our way, and if they cannot come along with us as yet, we will surely see them again, as we pass by once more in the future lifetime.

     And the Elven Way is not easily perceived or understood because, rather like Faerie its’elf, it changes according to individuals involved. We adapt to the life elfin but Elfin also adapts its’elf to us. It is a very individualistic path, even while it draws us closer and closer together. Our union becomes strong because we are confident individuals. We don’t need appointed (usually self-appointed) leaders because we are each in the process of leading ours’elves and directing our own lives. If others learn from our example that is surely a blessing for them and for us.

     We can tell you this for certain. If those you encounter demand money from you to be part of the elven way or path, they are probably not elves, most likely goblins. If they have strict rules you have to follow, you are probably dealing with grimlins. If you are arbitrarily forced to take a vow, then they are most likely grimlins as well, although possibly orcs, unless it is really a scam for money and then we are back to goblins.

     Would you dedicate yours’elf to the Elven Way? Then do so. And if you wish to take a vow to affirm that dedication, you will, being the elf that you are, probably have to make that vow up yours’elf. There is no obligation involved. Always, vow or no vow, be true to your own s’Elf. Many have tread the path, left it and returned again. We will be here for you as long as we are able and when we pass from this life, surely, we’ll see you again in another. But that is up to you really. We, for our part, will always be here for you, it’s just that here changes location from time to time. We are, after all, stardust surfing in the Stellar winds.

“We elves don’t consider ours’elves as teachers, nor do we see those who come to us to learn the Elven Way, no matter how new they may be, as students, we are all brothers and sisters of the Way, the Great Frasority of Elfin Kindred.”
—What the elves Say

 

tiny_green_7star

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.”
—The Silver Elves

“The Elves believe that before you seek to teach someone it helps if you learn what they already know.”

To Elfin Find

Free we are, to Elfin find
Whatever kin, of any kind
Together do we travel
The mysteries unravel.

Secrets deep, and secrets old
Will now the mysteries unfold
Whisper gently to the bold
From ages long ago untold.

From simple self to Shining One
All has ever yet begun
Such treasures can be won
Silver Moon and golden Sun.

With far memories of an ancient way
Where Elfae sing and Dragons play
And twirling Faeries laugh about
The glen where flowers ever sprout.

Otherworld is like they say
Only one step in mind away
All creatures fey and fair
Call us out to join them there.

And appreciation do we show
To near and far so all can know
Because gratitude knows no bounds
When our True Heart is truly found.

And when the hearth we have found
Joyous tales do abound
Of travels wide and far
Guided by an Elfin star.

Whose light does ever shine within
The secret of our heart
Where ‘er we go or ‘er we’ve been
You’ve been there from the start.

—written together by Hennie van Geel, Sara Isayama (Ileådryn), Zardoa‎, and Silver Flame (members of the Facebook group “Magical Books of the Silver Elves”)

The Silver Elves Tarot Reading
for the Elfae People for 2020!

The Silver Elves invite you to view our Youtube video presentation demonstrating the elven method of tarot reading and what we call the “Elven Shuffle,” a unique way that we elves use shuffling the cards to allow the spirit world to select the cards in a reading. And we also give a general reading (using the “Elven Shuffle” for a complete Celtic Cross spread) and prediction for the Elven-Fae people for the year 2020! Then please do subscribe to our You Tube channel and we would love to read a comment from you in the comment section below the video. We plan to have more videos on casting and using our original Silver Elves oracles in the future, including our original elven runes, elven geomancy, the I Ching and our elven interpretation, and the Elven Star Oracle. Many Elven Blessings, dear Kindred! https://youtu.be/UCMGCEDZqo0

And for more on the elven style of tarot, you may enjoy reading our two Silver Elves books on using the tarot for magical wish fulfillment and as an elven oracle:

“Elven Magic is at the very border of what we know through science, ever reaching out into the unknown.”
—The Silver Elves

 

And for further reading:

And, dear Kindred, if you enjoyed the article above about the Elven Way and vows, we think you may very much enjoy reading our most popularly read book on the wisdom teachings of the ancient Elven titled Through the Mists of Faerie:

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

ThroughtheMists

Excerpt from Through The Mists of Faerie:

“And one should know as well that in treading the Path of the Elven that most folks at this time in the world, mostly probably including one’s oldest and closest friends, may be uncomfortable with this venture into the unknown. Your old friends like you as you are, and are often uncomfortable with you are making what seems to them to be radical changes in your life. One thus may wish to be cautious in revealing one’s elven nature to others. Most will simply ridicule the idea. Some, because of fundamentalist beliefs may be intimidated by the idea of magic and warn you against pursuing the ways of the Devil. And since the newly awakened often take on elf names many, if not most, of one’s friends, will feel uncomfortable using this new name. At the same time the Elfae naturally wishes the name to be used to reinforce hir own confidence in pursuing the Elven Way. Each must decide in hir own circumstances how much sHe is willing, and how much it is wise, to reveal and to whom.”

The New Dawn of Elfin

February 17, 2020

New DawnCover

Announcing our newest The Silver Elves book release!
The New Dawn of Elfin:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path, Volume 3

The New Dawn of Elfin is found here to purchase on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK.

         In The New Dawn of Elfin, we Silver Elves continue with a volume 3 of our question and answer series addressing the numerous questions about who the elves are and about the Elven Way. In this book series, we address questions that have been posed to us throughout our 40+ years of following the elven way and sharing with the world that we are elves in spirit inhabiting human bodies (also see The Magical Realms of Elfin volume 1, and Manifesting Elfin, volume 2).

     The New Dawn of Elfin explores further questions about elven tribes and relationships; elven magic and healing; the elven worldview and modern elven life; elven awakening and being on the path to Elfin; elfin spirit and soul and elven psychology; more about Arvyndase, the magical language of the Silver Elves; elves in myths and legions; elven awakening and entering Elfin; more about being otherkin; elven views on dreaming, astral travel, visualization, and death; and the New Dawn and Return of Faerie.

         Some of the specific questions answered in The New Dawn of Elfin are: Can anyone be an elf? Do elves really Awaken to being elfin? How does one begin on the Path to Elfin? Are elves immortal? Are the Silver Elves high elves or low elves? What is the elven worldview? Who are the elven rangers and the elf scouts? Are Vulcans elves? Do elves believe that true love exists? What is the elven spirit? Are elves and elfae human? What is the magic of being an elf? Do elves do weather working magic? How do elven witches differ from other witches? Can magicians summon elves? What is high elven magic? What is the elven worldview? What do the elves think about the modern world of humans straying from being united with Nature? Why do elves need money? How does one begin on the path to Elfin? What can we do to help manifest Elfin? Are there Elven priests, or monks, nuns, rabbis, etc.? Does the spiritual path of the Elven require vows? Is an elven soul different than a human soul? What is the elven spirit? How do elves deal with their emotions? Does Arvyndase (the magical language of the Silver Elves) have dialects? Do we elves exchange our own babies for those of the normal folk? Are Elves Nature Spirits? Was Merlin an Elf? Was Gandalf an elf? Do elves love wine as Tolkien seemed to indicate? What is the difference between a shapeshifter and someone who is an otherkin blend? Is it common for family members to share the same otherkin type? What is the importance of astral travel, lucid dreaming and out of the body experience? What do we elves think of death? When Faerie returns will there still be a race of Men? Are there actually portals to Elfin? (see the complete table of contents below)

          Most often, a person has questions as one tries: to decide if one is ones’elf an elf or is some otherkin; to understand what it means to be an elf and how one might know of one’s elfin nature; to understand one’s experience of having an Elven Awakening; to determine how elven magic is alike or different from that performed by other spiritual groups; and to learn about how elves live and relate to mankind and otherkin. In the first volume The Magical Realms of Elfin and also in our second volume Manifesting Elfin, we covered numerous questions on the above topics, including a section about which of our Silver Elves’ books to read on various interests about the Elven Way, our magic and about being elfin.

Do elves use sigils and hyper-sigils to become more elf-like?

February 1, 2020

runestar copy

“. . . indeed many if not most elves use sigils of various sorts and perhaps even more are inclined to use hyper-sigils. . . our elvish hyper-sigil, our art as an outpouring of our magic, our life-style as an expression of our elvishness, is certainly an important part of our lives as elfae beings. And while it doesn’t really make us more elfin, it is a more elf-like expression of our being in the world . . .”

First, of course, the answer to this question, like so many others, depends upon the elf. But, in general, we would say that indeed many if not most elves use sigils of various sorts and perhaps even more are inclined to use hyper-sigils. But before we go further, let’s attempt to define what we are talking about here without in any way limiting the expression of or our understanding of these two terms, sigil and hyper-sigil, nor limit you in your own understanding and definitions thereof.

   A sigil, as you surely know, is a symbol, sign or signature of a being, energy or spirit. The ankh is a sigil of eternal life of Ancient Egypt. The cross, with and without poor Jesus nailed to it is used as a sigil of Christianity. The swastika is an ancient sigil of Hindus and Buddhists (although misused by the Nazis) representing a spiral galaxy.

     Our book An Elfin Book of Spirits is filled with spirit signatures, which are sigils. And Voudoun Veves are surely sigils as well. In fact, you could say that tags, which are seen here and there painted on walls of cities and towns around the world, except where tyrants rule, are sigils as well. We could also say that Runes are sigils (see our book The Book of Elven Runes), or can be used that way, and Druid Oghams (see our most recent book An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script) and surely the seven-pointed acute angled Elven Star is a sigil as well (see our book The Elven Star Oracle). Looking around the room we are currently sitting in, we see numerous sigils upon our walls in every direction, including sigils from ancient Taoist Calligraphy Magic.

     Hypersigils or Supersigils, which we admit are new terms to us, none-the-less are something that has been part of our magic for years and involves the use of magic, art (see our book Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic), drama and the persona as an expression of magic. In other words, one makes one’s magic real by living it and incorporating it into one’s art and one’s lifestyle. And we’d say that almost all elven folk do this even more than they use traditional sigils.

     Even those who are not entirely sure they are really elven, fae or otherkin, often do this without realizing they are doing so when they LARP or RPG or otherwise live out their elven life in their imaginations. We Silver Elves, and others like us, have simply extended this practice into our regular lives and live the life Elven in reality.

     Still, pretending one is an elf or fae is really, in this sense, evoking a hyper-sigil, whose effect may very well prove to be an eventual awakening for that individual, especially when they encounter other elfae who are manifesting their elven natures in reality. See our book Living the Personal Myth for more on bringing your magical s’elf into manifestation.

     Carl Jung created the idea of Synchronicity, which was a term that defined coincidences that had psychological significance and impact for the individual. So that the individual experiencing a synchronicity not only sees that a coincidence has occurred but also feels that there is meaning behind the connection of these two or more similar, and to them related, events. This assigning of meaning is, in part, what we are doing as elves and as magicians and magic wielders in general. We are organizing the Universe in such a way that it has meaning and purpose for us and we are doing it in such in way as to manifest Elfin and express ours’elves as elves at the same time. The meaning we see in things may not be seen, recognized or acknowledged by others, but then others often don’t recognize that we are elven either.

     This isn’t much different, in its way, from being able to read a language that others may not. Our elven lives are hyper-sigils but they are in an elven script that few others can read. At the same time, you could say that all the books we Silver Elves have currently in publication about elven life, culture, magic and philosophy are also hyper-sigils and yet while anyone who reads English can understand what the words say, it doesn’t mean that they will understand the inner, magical meaning of those books. It is not just about understanding the words, but understanding the enchantments that live within the words.

     However, the original question didn’t actually ask if we used sigils and hyper-sigils but whether we used them to become more elf-like and here we’d have to say both yes and no. We are elves. In a sense, there is nothing that can make us more of what we are, because we are what we are and that is elven, or fae or other. But on the other hand, by expressing ours’elves and our elven nature through and into the world, we are becoming more elf-like in the sense of better able to express ours’elves more purely in the world and shed the various trappings and enculturation that have been forced upon us by the mundane worldly in their eagerness to make us like them.

     So, in that sense, our elvish hyper-sigil, our art as an outpouring of our magic, our life-style as an expression of our elvishness, is certainly an important part of our lives as elfae beings. And while it doesn’t really make us more elfin, it is a more elf-like expression of our being in the world and that certainly is rather the same thing while being a bit different. Just like we elves ours’elves.

A bit on some of the Silver Elves books about elven sigils and hyper-sigils that we mentioned in the article above. . . .

 

spirtbook

An Elfin Book of Spirits: Evoking the Beneficent Powers of Faerie

An Elfin Book of Spirits contains the sigil and description of 360 Elfin spirits, one for each degree of the Zodiac, that can be summoned by evocation to help the magician with whatever he or she desires. It also reveals a system for using stones to find a spirit at random, which is what we Silver Elves most often do when seeking the aide of a spirit. These are Elfin spirits, so they command the powers and influences of Faerie and in addition to helping the conjuror fulfill hir Will, they will also ever seek to guide the magician to the fulfillment of hir Destiny and the progress toward the perfection of hir True S’elf.

 

 

 

Elven Runes, original divination system . . . .

The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie

This is an original elven divination system of The Silver Elves. 

The Book of Elven Runes contains 40 elfin runes for use as an oracle and as a magical script. These are not based on the Norse runes but are an original system created by the Silver Elves. The book is subtitled A Passage Into Faerie because each rune also advises a Magical Act that the magic wielder can perform to bring hir closer to Faerie. The use of these runes is itself an elfin spell cast in a unique way as each user weaves hir way deeper into the Elfin Realms.

 

 

The Ogham of the Elves with Wizard Script . . . .

Cover_ElfinBookOfTrees
An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script is an oracle book about the magic of trees, our loving cousins. Reading this book, you will learn about the magic that individual trees and tree groups may bring you, written from the point of view of the elves. And besides using this book as an oracle, each tree or tree group (of which there are 111) has an Elfin Ogham in the Wizard Script of the Silver Elves that may be used in your own magic. This book is easy to use as an oracle and the specifics on just how to do so are covered in the introduction and through out the book, with elven spells at the end of each chapter, written in English and also Arvyndase (the magical language of the Silver Elves), to be used for enchantment magic upon drawing the tree or tree group. To read more about this book and some sample chapters, please click here as we have a special blog page dedicated to this book.

And for the star enchanters we suggest:

The Elven Star Oracle: A System of Divination for Star Enchanters :

elfstarbookpic
THE ELVEN STAR ORACLE is an original divinatory system created by the Silver Elves invoking the 88 major constellations and the blessings of the Shining Ones for guiding one through the world and ever closer to the realization of Faerie. It is called “The Elven Star Oracle” because it is based upon the seven pointed Elven Star, sometimes also called the Faery Star, and the areas between the points, overlaid on the dimensional manifestation of Faerie and the realms that are linked to it. To view an excerpt of this book and find out more about it, click here to come to our website where we feature this oracle.

 

 

 

And about hyper-sigils in our elven magic and art:

Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way by The Silver Elves is a book of magic — very practical magic that involves the creation of one’s magical tools, which include wands, staffs, rattles, crowns, hoods, robes and many other instruments of magic and, in this case inHedgewitcheryBook particular, of elven magic and enchantment. In this book, we share with you many of our favorite magical elven art projects that we have enjoyed doing in the last 40+ years and give you guidance and detailed instructions for creating your own and using them in your magic, along with over 100 photos to demonstrate the art processes. Also, this is a book of elven spells and enchantment magic, with elven rhyming magical spells (200 spells in total written in both English and the magical language of the Silver Elves — Arvyndase, including Arvyndase pronunciation keys) that you may use in rituals to empower your art and magic with each magical item and creative project. We include our magical art processes from faerie altered clothing and making faerie houses to creating magical elf stones and ritual tools such as a Book of Shadows (or a Book of Twilight as we elves call them) and also a Scrapbook of Shadows, chalices, ally dolls, wands, canes, staffs, seaweed pod rattles, magic plates, elven warrior shields, wishing wheels, mojo bags, and elven witches brooms and magic spoons. We further have chapters in Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic on making elfin dream pillows, fairy dust and pixie powder, elven magical boxes or reliquaries, elven Mbuti, paintings, illuminated circles, magic soul cards, tarot decks, pan pipes, fantasy maps and even some of our favorite elven group-art games like elven notan and Elven Chess. We also have a chapter on spell crafting using the seven-pointed elven star. And in our final chapter, we share with you more about the Orb of Healing, which is a magical artifact that is at the center of our elven magick.

As we elves often say, “Our beauty often comes from our uniqueness.” If you would like further guidance on making the magic of Faerie real in your own life, we suggest reading  Living the Personal Myth, a unique narrative about a psychological study of the magic of living one’s personal myth, in effect, making one’s dream and vision of one’s self come true by living it. It is a personal guide to becoming one’s true s’elf as one inwardly knows one’s s’elf to be. This book is a potent guide to realizing one’s genuine, and potentially powerful, magical and fantastic nature.

MythImagecoverLiving the Personal Myth:
Making the Magic of Faerie Real in One’s Own Life

by The Silver Elves

 

“Elfin is like an island across a great vast sea. To get to it you can either sail or fly. To sail you can use the vessel that is your soul. To fly you need the wings of your spirit. The ship of your soul is your love of all things elfin, the wings of your spirit are the faith you have in your own true s’elf and your willingness to make it real. It does not matter entirely how you get there, but if you be elven in your soulful spirit, get there you must.”

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.

Now A Gift For You!!!!!
What Kind of Elf or Otherkin Are You?
And What is Your Elfae or Otherkin Tribe?

For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. You probably know if you are an elf, faerie, or otherkin but now we’ve created a questionnaire in order to help us and you create a narrative together about your specific people and your clan, their personal characteristics, magic, relationship to Nature, and interests. This is our gift to you (free), which we think will be a bit of fun for both of us. Give us five minutes of your time and we will give you a half hour to forty minutes of ours and send you your unique magical narrative. Simply follow this link and the directions on the page: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html .

 

And for further reading on your Elven, Faerie, Otherkin tribe:

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. Be sure and click on the title links and read a few of these magical narratives. Perhaps, you will 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).

“The Elves believe the Cosmos is a dance ever spinning round making love out of dreams and magic out of chance.”
