Are There Any Steps Beyond Awakening on the Elven Path?

October 9, 2020

“We elfae are soulful beings and the power of our souls increase with our growing and increasing relationships to each other. . . . after one’s Awakening as an elfae being, one’s life not only takes on a more spiritual dimension but a very otherworldly dimension is added, as well. All we do becomes overshadowed by our elfin natures and the world as we see it becomes gradually transformed so we are seeing it in a new way. . . . One certainly continues to perfect one’s skills as an artist, musician, writer, archer, auto mechanic or carpenter, etc., as one did before Awakening to one’s elfin nature but a spiritual dimension is added to one’s efforts. This is rather like the notion of Zen . . . Here a spiritual dimension is added to one’s material efforts, a greater consciousness that involves the worlds of energy and spirit and not merely the material realm.”

In the article below, we speak about the first three out of seven steps on the elven path or as we Silver Elves call it, The Elven Way: Awakening, Association, and Activation.

Step One and Two of The Elven Way:

AWAKENING and ASSOCIATION

Awakening is the most commonly spoken of and probably the most noted aspect of The Elven Way. This is so principally because Awakening is the first movement on the path and it also tends to be life transforming for the individual, and therefore highly memorable, at least for a time. For it is often, but not always, accompanied by a profound sense of having finally discovered ones’elf, of having come home to one’s true home and family, in a sense, and frequently stirs one’s feelings and imagination powerfully and both at the same time, which makes it doubly effective.

     This powerful sense that those who awaken to the elfae nature sometimes get that which one has waited one’s entire life for this moment is psychologically profound. But at the same time, it is the very potency of this experience that makes it somewhat fragile. One expects, in a certain sense, that these powerful feelings will last forever, but in time the dull magics of the normal world that were created to lull us into a sleep so we no longer remember who we really are and to glamor us into thinking we are other than we are, works incessantly at us, projected by the normal folk around us. And few elves who are at that point and are elfae alone in the world, are able to resist these dark magics, although, it has been done, obviously, or none of us would be aware at all.

     Therefore, the next step upon the Elven Path is usually that of Association. In some ways, this is really the first step, because most of us become aware of our elfae and otherkin nature because of our association with others and it is this link to others who are already awakened that leads to our own awakening. And yet the Awakening is so powerful usually that it eclipses the relationships that led to it.

     At the same time, the truth is that Association is so important to most elfin beings that it not only comes before most awakenings, and directly after, but is the central pivot of our society ever onward throughout time. We elfae are soulful beings and the power of our souls increase with our growing and increasing relationships to each other.

     The reason Association is seen as the second step upon The Elven Way, rather than the first, is that prior to Awakening, while one might have elf friends and be an elf friend, one doesn’t actually realize that one is really an elf or fae or whatever and due to that one doesn’t usually understand that those elfae with whom one associates are really what they claim to be, which is elfin beings. Thus, although one may, and most likely did, know elfae folk prior to Awakening, one simply hasn’t taken that very important step and set ones’elf upon the Path, as yet, and, most likely, sworn an inner oath to ones’elf and one’s spirits to remain awakened thereafter throughout time till Elfin manifests in the material world and beyond.

     As we say, the event of Awakening is often due to one’s interaction with other Elfae, however, many relationships in the realms of the otherworldly can be quite fleeting. Often the ones that inspire one to awaken are actually living at a distance. One interacts with them through various social media, or one meets them at a gathering or other event and quite often they abide at such a distance that it is hard to see them often. And, as much as one would like to join with them immediately, practical reality and the needs of surviving in the world do not always allow this to occur. We are restrained by some dark spells of the world and it is these we strive to overcome.

     And, the fact is that elfae relationships can be quite fleeting anyway. We come and go interacting with each other, moving about upon the Great Faerie Rade, migrating here and there, and it can be hard to find a stable elfae community. Which is why, in part, the first movement in association is toward finding soulmates or starmates, our others with whom we can share an intimate relationship and share the Path together as well. Someone that we can count on, who can also count on us. Creating an elven or elfae community often depends upon a pair of elfae who are the central core of the association. It doesn’t have to be just two, of course, and the goal is to gather more, but a pair it often is.

     Still, elfae folk will come and go and this is important to understand. The inner frasority may remain, hopefully will, but those who obit around us sometimes fly off into space and others take their place. Some are very intensely devoted for a while. Usually, this is after they have recently awakened, but then they spin off elsewhere, frequently only to return again at a later time, a bit wiser for their experience and, in their way, really even more dedicated The Elven Way although less intense in their dedication. What they lose in emotion and fervor, they gain in stability.

     It would be nice if, as elfae folk, we all got along with each other perfectly. Alas, that is not the case. There are natural differences of personality for one thing. Not everyone is meant to be with every other elfae being. We get along better than most of those in the normal world, but still we have our differences.

     And surely there are issues of our own psyche and spirits and soulful natures to work out. We are not perfect beings, but rather spirits perfecting ours’elves. And the various things that plagued us in the world are still with us and need to be worked out. That is, in part, what the Path is all about, developing ours’elves as spirits.

     The need some of our kin feel for personal acknowledgement and recognition is understandable. Many wish to be seen as experts on Faerie lore and our culture, and present thems’elves as such, which as we say is perfectly understandable, but this needs to be done without diminishing others.    

Our job as prominent beings in the modern elfae community, if we dare take on that responsibility, is to empower our others rather than lift ours’elves above them. If we are to be uplifted, it will be done by our others, not by ours’elves. Association draws us to our others and sets us down equally together, sharing the love and magic of Elfin with all who dare to step upon and tread the Path with us.

Step Three of The Elven Way: ACTIVATION    

As we have explained above, there are seven primary steps or stages upon The Elven Way. The first of these is the Awakening and the second we Silver Elves call Association. As we have already pointed out, Association is really an ongoing activity and is occurring even before one’s Awakening happens. The difference is that after one’s Awakening, one begins to knowingly seek association with one’s kindred and others in light of one’s growing awareness of one’s Elfae or otherkin nature, where previously one sought one’s kindred without really knowing that it was elfae that one was seeking.

     So, while one puts out feelers toward association often hoping for a soulmate before one experiences one’s Awakening, the Awakening transforms the nature of the quest for Association, which is why it is seen as the second step upon the Elven Way. One’s field of search has narrowed but now one knows what one is really searching for.

     The third step upon The Elven Way is Activation. And once again, this is something that was happening prior to one’s awakening and continues afterward. In some ways, these steps upon the Path are not entirely sequential but simultaneous. Still, there seems to be an emphasis that aligns them in a seemingly sequential order. Yet, it is good to realize that almost all of these steps are really taken together. They are like a group, band, pack, covey or vortex of elves walking through the woods together. One may lead at one point, another at some other time. One may speak, then another will replay, and then another still. Yet, they are all moving together in reality. So, too, all these stages are happening at once and sequentially, also. We put the emphasis on one stage at one moment and another after that and back again.

     Activation has to do with the development of our powers as individuals. Surely, everyone who isn’t racked and incapacitated by the dark spells of depression hope to succeed as individuals in the world and in seeking to succeed endeavor to improve what they do and how they do it. Surely, this was happening before one’s Awakening and it certainly continues after one’s Awakening. In fact, in many ways, this is central to the Elven Way, for evolving as elven spirits and becoming more enlightened and powerful as individual beings is what the path is all about.

     The difference between Activation before the Awakening and afterwards is that we are not only aware of our various abilities and are striving to improve them but also we are increasingly aware that in being elves, fae and others that there are otherworldly powers that we can draw upon and wield as magicians, witches and enchanters. Or wizards, sorcerers, shamans or whatever combination of magics one might do. For many elfae folk explore nearly every sort of magic and are proficient in more than one technique or school of magical endeavor.

     One certainly continues to perfect one’s skills as an artist, musician, writer, archer, auto mechanic or carpenter as one did before Awakening to one’s elfin nature but a spiritual dimension is added to one’s efforts. This is rather like the notion of Zen and the Art of Auto Mechanics (see Robert Pirsig’s book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel). Here a spiritual dimension is added to one’s material efforts, a greater consciousness that involves the worlds of energy and spirit and not merely the material realm.

     So, too, after one’s Awakening as an elfae being, one’s life not only takes on a more spiritual dimension but a very otherworldly dimension is added, as well. All we do becomes overshadowed by our elfin natures and the world as we see it becomes gradually transformed so we are seeing it in a new way. Along with being a musician, we are learning patience. Along with being a writer, we are developing our charms and enchantments. Along with our efforts to become better archers, we are aiming for the increase and development of our soulful natures and ability to focus our magical intentions. We seek to improve our various skills, but also our willpower, our intellect, our imagination, our capacity to feel and communicate clearly and truly, our ability to have faith in the magic when it is working in the unseen realms and our ability to see the subtle signs telling us that the magic is indeed spreading out and causing effects in the world, although the end and desired result of our efforts may not have entirely occurred as yet.

     Perseverance becomes vital at this point, because while the Awakening is often dramatic to the point of being astonishing, and Association has its “moments” that we share and sometimes its peak points when we meet one of our true kindred, Activation can be a long slow day-by-day slog toward our goals with little to show for our efforts but the occasional realization that we have somehow, seemingly magically, transformed for the better. We find our skills have improved on all levels but are not always sure when that occurred. And inevitably, especially as we increase our abilities, we will be better at some  things one day and seem to devolve in our ability later. Again, the difference is perseverance. If we don’t give up the path, our powers will increase upon all levels over time, just not all at once and not always consistently at first. Consistency comes with practice.

     And the consequence of this effort (which is energy, which is magic) will be that the spirits of Elfin and Faerie take notice of us. They will seek to improve us as well, lending their powers to our own until we realize that we are never elves or faeries alone but fae folk together through the ages and through the dimensions and throughout time, lifetime after lifetime now and forever more.

Elfin Spirit Talk: Elven Sign Language for Magic and Spell Casting

For years now, we Silver Elves have been using a sign language we’ve created to go along with our magic and our spells. Our newest published book to date, ELFIN SPIRIT TALK: Elven Sign Language for Magic and Spell Casting, shares with you, dear Kindred, this magic of hand movements. You can see our love of using hand gestures in our oracles and magic reflected, in part, in our book Elven Geomancy where whatever result you get as an oracle also has a series of hand movements combined with mudras. These mudras will either greatly increase the power of the oracle and its prediction if you like what you receive and want that outcome to occur, or decrease its potency if the reply from the oracle was contrary to what you wanted. This being done as a way, therefore, of warding off disaster or undesired consequences and moving the energy in another more positive and desired direction. We have carried this practice over into our daily spell casting and in doing so have created a number of spells for ours’elves that we do every day with hand signs similar to American Sign Language in certain ways, only specifically for magical use. After all, magic uses the language of symbols for communicating with spirits. And thus you will find in Elfin Spirit Talk that we have created word signs in the fashion of sign language for the deaf and hearing impaired.

PART ONE of Elfin Spirit Talk has 100 elven spells of magic created in both English and Arvyndase and they cover most situations in life about which you might wish to perform magic, including ten spells in each of ten categories: Protection, Prosperity, Good Fortune, Longevity and Healing, Happiness, Power, Knowledge, Love and Relationship, Wisdom and Spirituality, and Creativity. Once you have found just the right spell in one of these categories that you need for your particular individual situation, you may then go to Part Two of the book and look up each word in the spell to find the Silver Elf Magical Sign Language to go with it.

PART TWO is set up in alphabetical order like a dictionary, so it is English to Silver Elf Magical Sign Language. We include in this section the directions for using the elf sign language to go with the magic spell that you have selected from the first section of this book. You will be looking up each word in your magic spell in this alphabetical dictionary of elf sign language. Once you have studied the signs that go with each word of the spell, you will be ready to use them as you cast your spell in your magic.

What Makes an Elven Home?

September 1, 2020
“. . . what makes an elfin home is the magic of our shared love which encourages everyone who lives there and those who come to visit to be who they truly are in the best way that they can in harmony with Nature, the Universe and all others as much as they can manage at that time to be.”

     It is certainly not about the decor, although we elves love to decorate our homes, but rather it is about the spirit of the home. And the spirit of our home, our eald, our elven home, is something that we take with us where ever we go. We Silver Elves have taken Eldafaryn (Elf Haven, the name of our home) with us across a continent and back. We take it when we cross oceans and it has shifted with us, moved with us, as elven homes do, into houses, condos, apartments, a school bus, and a van. You can even find it with us in hotel rooms.

     Some of the decor and most of our teraphim (spirits of our home and our mystical elfae family) go with us when we make a move. Occasionally, a teraphim decides not to make the journey, or leaves in the midst of it. We know this because the form or statue they were occupying breaks as they depart. This happens, we feel from knowing these spirits well, that they have become so very close to the trees and nature there, that they prefer to stay in that environment. But this happens seldom, however. Most of our teraphim enjoy living with us and continue to do so where ever we journey. The appearance of our new residence may change somewhat, just as we change our raiment from time to time, but the spirit that resides within it stays essentially the same, except it is more evolved, more powerful and illuminated by our previous experiences.

     But most of all, the spirit of our elven home travels with us because it exists within our own hearts and our soulful connection to each other and fills whatever abode we may settle in, for however long, with the magic of our togetherness, our mutual elfae being and the love that we share.

     It is true that some elfae are alone in the world. And if we understand them correctly, there are far more who are alone than who wish to be. Many elfae and otherkin tell us that they are loners, but we’ve come to understand that in most cases this just means they have yet to find their own kindred, and that they feel surrounded by the critical gaze of the normal folk who are ever judging everyone, including each other, for not being quite good enough. Yet, it is rare for elfae to truly be loners. We may be, many of us, quite introverted and somewhat disinclined toward large groups, or even when in large groups still prone to sit back and observe for the most part, but nearly all elfae seek their true kin and upon finding them know that something that they have hungered for, seemingly forever, has finally come about.

     We have often had our elfae friends who visit us after a move say, “Yep, this is still Eldafaryn.” Which, of course, it is. The decorations may have changed somewhat and their location in our home may have shifted, and objects that we had in storage may have now come out and others have replaced them in the secret sleepy realms of awaiting, but the spirit is the same.

     Of course, we love the cozy decor that you see in elven and hobbit homes in movies that have rounded doors and archways, vines growing inside and out, lace curtains, beautiful woodwork with Celtic-type knotwork designs throughout and plants everywhere. It is all so beautiful and inspiring. And if we could afford such a place we would surely embrace it with all our hearts.

     However, even if we had a place such as Rivendell to live in, that wouldn’t make it an elven home without the spirit of Elfin to awaken it from within, any more than a person who puts on a suit, no matter how expensive it may be, is necessarily a good and successful business person. For what makes an elfin home is the magic of our shared love which encourages everyone who lives there and those who come to visit to be who they truly are in the best way that they can in harmony with Nature, the Universe and all others as much as they can manage at that time to be.

And here is a quote from our Silver Elves book Through the Mists of Faerie: A magical guide to the wisdom teaching of the Ancient Elven that explains the true and deepest meaning of Elven Home:

“This feeling of Eldataelum, of Elvenhome, which often comes to us and feels like it is a memory from our childhood, of ancient times, of future possibilities, and the sense of magic we had as children, is another meditation for the Elfae, a deeper meditation born of feeling rather than mental chatter. This sense of being at home at last, this sense of childhood magic, is a communion with our Soul, and by holding this feeling gently within us we begin to vibrate that energy out into the world.”

“. . . it can be inconsistent at first. The feeling comes and goes as it will and we can but focus on it, sense it really, hold it gently and delicately within us as we would hold a fragile bird, and carry it with us as long as we can. Usually the concerns of the world, the circumstances of our life banish it soon enough, but having felt it a few times we begin to get a greater sense of it and in time we can summon it at will. We become the energy of Elvenhome; we are the Living Vibration of the Voice of Elfin calling to other elves in the world.”

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 that page: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html.

. . . . and here below is a book to help you feel more at ease in the normal world!

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

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.

Gaea de las Aguas writes on Amazon in her review of What An Elf Would Do:

4whatelfwoulddobig


“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 withpolishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

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.

Living 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.”

How do You Discover What Sort of Elf or Otherkin Type You Are? And Do You Need to Know your Kin Type to be an Otherkin?

August 1, 2020

Zardoa_blogotherkin

“. . . .  the realms of Faerie and Elfin are touched by the realms of the Unknown constantly whispering to us to change, evolve and creating even greater things than we had yet imagined.”

We often encounter individuals in our Facebook groups who feel attracted to the Elfae and Otherkin communities and the denizens thereof but don’t really know what sort of otherkin they might be. They wish to fit in and be accepted but they don’t know quite where they might fit in, especially when they encounter others who are posting about their personal kin type and its various features and they, for their own part, don’t know what to say about thems’elves.

     Yet, of course, of all the communities where the need to fit in is virtually unimportant, it is surely the elfae world where uniqueness and individuality are valued and fostered. One can remain amorphous, lurking from the shadows forever as far as we are concerned, as long as one does so in a harmonious fashion. For courtesy is also very important to us, especially for we elfae folk, and there are surely those who in following the ways that are common among other groups, where pointless arguing and character assassination is rife, find thems’elves on the other side of the mists that surround and protect our people, confused and scratching their heads about how they suddenly wound up there.

     However, there is really no need to hurry about discovering one’s kin type or defining our magical selves. You certainly don’t have to have a kin type in order to be accepted in our groups and, honestly, you don’t have to be elfae or otherkin to be our (the Silver Elves) friends. You just have to be sincerely friendly, which to us means you are an elf friend and that is otherkin enough for us to proceed upon.

     So, it is not at all necessary to delineate one’s otherkin type, if one isn’t at the point when one is ready to do so. There are times in our lives when it is important to simply expand and explore the consciousness of spirit without naming it while there are other times when we become ready to define and act upon the consciousness of our spiritual identity. It is best if that happens naturally. It doesn’t need to be forced and it is vital that when it does happen that it is an expression of our inner being and of a true sense of ours’elves.

     So, how do we discover our kintype when the time comes to do so? First, we trust ours’elves. We particularly trust our understanding of ours’elves and we especially need to trust our attractions. This is to say, we tend to be attracted to things that have some relationship to us. We are naturally inclined to be attracted to our own kin and kind.

     So, the question then becomes, what do we really wish to be? Not just what sort of otherkin or elfae do we relate to in our feelings, although that is very important as well, but what do we wish to be? Beneath the all of Life is Spirit. Spirit creates and manifest the Universe and the world, which is to say our own s’elves. So, what is it that you wish to be? Don’t deny yours’elf. Understand your aspirations, for they will form your being and we are all becoming through time, interaction and experience.

     What makes this whole situation slightly trickier is that we are a community of shapeshifters and hybrids. We are often not one thing but a mixture of different types, or we have the ability to shift from one to another. We Silver Elves, for instance, call ours’elves elves for convenience, but we also know that we are related to pixies, brownies, sidhe and fae and others as well. There is no conflict in our hearts and minds about this fact. And we might manifest as any of these at any time and change again later.

     But, in the long run, it comes down to this once again, and that is what is it you wish to be? Those of you who are uncertain of your kintype. This is Elfin. You are not determined by forces outside of yours’elf forcing you to be this or that, but moved by forces within yours’elf, your own inner nature that will eventually compel you to be exactly who you truly are, which is also, as it turns out, who you really wish to be. How great is that?

tiny_green_7star

Do you need to Know your Kin Type to be an Otherkin?

Well, clearly you don’t. All sorts of people feel that they are otherkin but don’t have a clear idea of what sort of otherkin they might be. Most often, in our experience, this is not due to the fact that they have no idea at all, but rather that they feel drawn to so many different types of otherkin that they don’t know which one they really are. And many times, they don’t really wish to have to choose.

     And we Silver Elves don’t see why they would have to do so. We are elves, yes. But we are also pixie folk and brownie folk and descended from the Sidhe and while we usually call ours’elves elves, we also consider ours’elves fully pixie and brownie and so forth as well. We have even been adopted by a group of hobbits, given hobbit names and are considered hobbits, as well. There is no conflict in our elvish minds concerning this. When we are with them, we are hobbits, but we are also elves.

     Most elfin, faerie otherkin types are hybrids, anyway. And surely in some cases they become a unique and individual type just in the way that the manticore has the head of a human, the body of a lion and a tail of venomous spines, like a scorpion, while some even have wings. So, a hybrid of otherkin types may produce a whole new type but then, not always.

     We’ve known people who are descended from the Irish, from the Philippine people, from an African tribe and other varieties and, often, they were born in America or some other country and that in a sense makes them American also. Are they Irish? Yes. Are they Filipino? Yes. African? Yes, that too, and American. There is no valid reason to make them choose between these ancestries. They are each and all of them at the same time, a combination of wondrous love.

     Of course, some folks might just feel more comfortable saying I’m a dragon, or a Unicorn, or an Elf or a Faerie but that is usually only those that are still struggling with the fact that they are otherkin at all and uncertain whether they may have to retreat into the world of the normal folk and hide among them again. Those who are more comfortable in the Otherworld, or perhaps we should call it, the World of the Other, are also used to the fact that things are constantly shifting and changing there. In a world where so many folks are shapeshifters, you get used to people shifting their forms, identities and even their gender regularly.

     These sort of shifts are rather frightening to the normal folk who can even get violent and murderous towards those who have shifting identities but for the elfae folk this is just the way things are and really, it is also the way we like things to be. It gives constant variety to our worlds. And whatever you might say about the Elfin and Faerie realms, they are not boring as the normal world so often tends to be. They are ever surprising and ever revealing new and interesting things. For ours is a creative world and new creations pop up from time to time amazing and delighting us.

     And as to finding in your kin type, there’s no hurry really. If you are uncertain of what kin you might be, don’t worry about it. Choose whatever you feel most like at the moment, and if you happen to find another type you feel more like in the future, well, that’s great. You can change, you can add on, we are all hybrids, really and that just makes it all the more wondrous as far as we are concerned.

     Or simply be an amorphous shadow, lurking in the dark with no real form at all. Nothing requires a person to be a specific type of otherkin. You can be one of those people who just doesn’t like to be labeled. Although, labels are somewhat convenient, just for expressing things about ours’elves, but not necessary really. For the realms of Faerie and Elfin are touched by the realms of the Unknown constantly whispering to us to change, evolve and creating even greater things than we had yet imagined.

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.

If you have enjoyed reading our over 100 articles on our two blog sites, we think you may surely enjoy reading one of our most popular The Silver Elves books: Through The Mists of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven:

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

“Elfin, Faerie, Elfland or the Sacred Realm or Dimension of Magic that lives at the heart of the Universe, is an incredibly attractive power. It draws all true souls to it. It calls to the Elfin nature in each and every soul. This is the power that arouses the imagination of those who see or read the Lord of the Rings and say, I’m an Elf or I’m a Dwarf, or even I’m an Orc. The power calls to us through Urban Fantasy stories and the fantasy novels of old, as well as, faery tales and movies of magic and enchantment. But it also calls to us from the trees, the wild places of Nature, and sometimes most of all from magic memories of our childhood, which is really our ancient past, our past incarnations, calling to us. It can also be aroused, and quite strongly, perhaps most strongly, by others of our kind manifesting in the world. There is something magical about these beings and they arouse our own hunger for magic in our own lives and souls. These Elfae radiate starlight. They glimmer with love, kindness and compassion; and they reach out and touch our souls. Some might suppose this to be a glamor, a magic they have wrapped thems’elves within to enchant us; but while they are truly enchanting, the magic arises from the fact that they are genuine and real. They don’t need to glamor us. They just need to be their very own s’elves, for that is the most impressive magic of all. They are not trying, they are simply being: being thems’elves, being elves.”
—Excerpt from page 26 of Through The Mists of Faerie by The Silver Elves.

“The Elves believe that Fear is a dog that barks in the night to warn you of impending danger because it loves you. Embrace your fear. Feed it courage.”

From An Elven Point of View, Is Harley Quinn Fae? Is Batman Fae? Are X-Men Fae?

August 1, 2020

Blessings205

“. . . we see the faerie nature in many folk and we see the magic of Faerie pushing up through the cracks in the sideways and climbing the sides of the buildings and lurking in the corners of the world all around us.”

 

Is Harley Quinn Fae?

When you look at the world from an elven point of view, you begin to see elves, faeries, fae and all manner of otherkin all around one. Often, they don’t realize this otherness about thems’elves, but we see the faerie nature in many folk and we see the magic of Faerie pushing up through the cracks in the sideways and climbing the sides of the buildings and lurking in the corners of the world all around us. It takes the Faerie Sight to do this, or Elven Far Vision, or perhaps in this case Elven Near Vision.

This understanding of individuals and their fae nature includes seeing fictional characters of many sorts as fae. Comic book and graphic novel characters are especially prone to having fae characteristics. Often, this is due to some superpowers that they have, since magic and otherworldly powers link one to Elfin and Faerie, whether one is fae in nature or not. Our world is infectious you might say, but in a positive way, like having an infectious laugh or smile. We elfae are like moss or lichen, or even more like wild flowers and weeds, we grow everywhere we can in every niche available to us and we cast our seeds everywhere, far and wide, near and close, here and there.

     Take the character of Haley Quinn from the Batman series. She doesn’t really seem to have any superpowers, neither does Batman when it comes to that, unless you consider understanding the human psyche as being a superpower. For Harley Quinn (Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel) is a psychiatrist and it is in that capacity that she first meets, treats and falls in love with The Joker. And, certainly, there is some merit to the notion that understanding the human or other psyche might be a superpower.

     There is surely a long-standing magical tradition that proports that knowing a person’s true name gives one power over that individual. Among other things, many spiritual, magical and religious groups through time have gone by different names in order to keep their actual names secret. Or sometimes they get magical names, which they see as their true names that they keep secret from the mundane and uninitiated. We Sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters have secret names in the manner of this tradition.

     In the simplest terms, this can be seen in movies, where criminals take on pseudonyms during a heist in order to protect their actual identity, for if the police knew their true names…. The same can be seen, in a sense, when Superman disguises hims’elf in the world as Clark Kent. How they never recognize his face is another question. What, facial recognition software doesn’t work on Superman?

     In this same regard, if you really understand an individual to the depth of their being (their true name), then you have the ability to manipulate or influence them for good or ill. And that really is a great super power, and actually quite a rare one. There are many psychiatrists and psychologists in the world, yet most of them are ineffectual in their work because they don’t actually understand the individuals who are their patients. They are just carrying out rote routines that they have learned in empathy training and other practices. Those rare individuals who do understand others affect real changes in those individuals, while the rest are just going through the motions repeating formulas that have no power because there is no understanding behind them and thus no real connection to the individuals who come to them for therapy.

     Haley Quinn, on the other hand, falls in love with the Joker, who is clearly mad and she, through the process of counter-transference gets drawn into his lunacy and, what is to us, his Unseelie world. This, however, originates because while she may understand the Joker somewhat, she truly fails to understand hers’elf. He is an abusive individual but like many females, she convinces hers’elf that if she just loves him enough, he’ll transform. But he does not, he cannot, because she has given up her power to be with him. And while love is a great power, unfortunately it is not a panacea for all ills, although it can help, but seldom quickly.

     Harley in joining the Joker becomes fey hers’elf. Fey is a word that is generally defined as giving an impression of vague unworldliness or having supernatural powers of clairvoyance, which she does not, or that one is fated to die or at the point of death, thus living on the edge at all times and slightly mad for doing so. The moon-touched or loony are often seen as being connected to the world of the fae and the supernatural. And the moon witch has both light and dark powers and moods.

     In time, Harley breaks with the Joker, finds a relationship with Poison Ivy, another fae character, and Catwoman (Shapeshifter? Furry?) and the three together are sometimes called the Gotham City Sirens. Is she then a Siren, singing the unwitting to their deaths and laughing maniacally all the time?

     Whatever the case, it is clear that while she may have started her life as a woman as though she was of the normal world, her fae nature emerged and she joined the Unseelie folk who seek revenge upon Mankind for all their ill deeds toward the world, Nature and the fae, as well as just for the sheer pleasure of seeing those arrogant asses get what’s coming to them. Who among the fae doesn’t appreciate poetic justice? And yet, just as she became fey and fae and Unseelie, she could transform again, changing from a Supervillain to a Super Heroine, protecting the innocent against the oppressors, but first she will have to come to understand her own true name and nature.

 

Is Batman Fae?

On the surface, it would seem that Batman is, indeed, a man, as his name implies, and is not a fae of any sort. He doesn’t have super powers or magic of any kind, unless you accept being rich as a superpower, as his character said in one of the movies. As a sub-question then, we might ask: is wealth a superpower?

Well, having wealth certainly provides one with many powers. It is not an absolute power and surely it has its drawbacks, just as great beauty (another power) does, but surely it is a power. After all, when we hear stories of magic and genies, what is it that people who come upon a magic lamp or who have obtained some sort of magic, or even if they made a deal with a demon, most frequently ask for? It is great wealth.

Of course, not all those who have this power are superheroes. In fact, if we are to believe many of the rumors about those who are wealthy, or just read the newspapers about them or watch television, one might conclude that many of those who have the power of wealth are supervillains, or simply rather ordinary villains as the case may be. Greedy individuals who commit crimes large and small to obtain and keep their wealth. Batman being a superhero is a bit of an exception. This is not to say that all wealthy people are villains, just that wealth has its temptations like every other power. It allows one to do things that others without wealth cannot do in the world, but it doesn’t necessarily give one spiritual maturity and enlightenment, which are different powers altogether and ones that sometimes have prompted sages through the ages to eschew the acquisition of wealth.

And, let’s face it, while many of the wealthy have inherited their riches somewhere at some time, either the individual with wealth now or some ancestor obtained that wealth through effort. And again, if we are to believe the tales, they well could have done so using some very questionable and possibly quite villainous and illegal methods.

Also, while we might say, therefore, that Batman has a superpower, in his case an inherited one, of great wealth, his power is not a supernatural power and thus not exactly a fae or elfae power. His abilities don’t speak of the otherworldly so much as the best, most inventive and intelligent aspects of the mundane world. His powers, while financed by great wealth, are based upon science and technology, which are the superpowers of Mankind.

This is not to say that we elves aren’t scientifically oriented, for truly we are, but our powers tend to be more of the ethereal and otherworldly for the most part than merely powers of this world. And while we accept and revere science, we do not exclude the possibility of supernatural magic and powers, as Men often do. Rather, we embrace those powers, although we tend to think that they arise mostly from the power of the will and maturity of the developed individual. We should remember, however, that the third and much quoted law pronounced by Arthur C. Clarke is that, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Magic is not contrary to science, but a deeper understanding of Nature. It is supernatural but not unnatural.

None-the-less, when we examine Batman, he seems to be more Man than Fae. And yet, what about his Bat persona. At the very least, as he transforms himself into a Bat-Man, we could say that he is a sort of technological shaman, shapeshifting into a bat. At the same time, we might also think that Batman really is a Furry. After all, bats are furry creatures, except for their wings and in taking on the bat persona, Batman is actually revealing his Furry nature.

Of course, that doesn’t necessarily make him fae, exactly, but it does tend to indicate that he is Otherkin, and Otherkin surely can be fae, while others of the diverse kind are just a step away from fae, sort of a cross between men and fae creatures, but able if they so desire, to live and abide in Faerie.

While Batman chooses mostly to live in the mundane world combating criminals who are both super and quite ordinary villains, his life in Wayne Manor and especially his life in the Bat Cave, are somewhat otherworldly. Wayne Manor is a step away from the normal world of the mundane, the poor and the middle classes, and the Bat Cave another step even further away and much closer to Faerie. So, while Batman is probably not a fae being, he is a rather advanced man and, in that sense, surely a cousin to we who are elfae.

 

Are the X-Men Fae?

    We’d have to say that for the most part they are. Not only that but many of them seem to be quite elven. They have superpowers, of course, which is what makes them X-Men or mutant human beings, but quite a few of them enhance their powers with science and technology, which is a very elvish approach to the world. We are an eclectic group and we use whatever works, taking our natural abilities and otherworldly sense and increasing and enhancing them in every way we can.

The X-Men are not all elves, surely. They are a myriad of fae kind, with shapeshifters and various others among them with a variety of abilities and powers. Certainly, Wolverine isn’t an elf, more of an otherkin furry, but Charles Xavier and Magneto are rather elfin beings in our opinion, even though they don’t have pointed ears, but then most elves in the modern world don’t have pointed ears, as much as we’d like to do so.

     What is most interesting to us, however, is that the divide between those two characters and among the X-Men overall is quite in keeping with the difference between the Unseelie Elfae and the Seelie Elfae. Magneto and his group are angry at normal humanity and the world of Men because of the persecution that they have suffered at their hands but also because of Man’s incredible folly in the way they treat the world and the natural environment. They are greedy, arrogant, selfish and will not listen to those who are wiser and have the vision to see where their folly will lead them. Compared to most of us, they are rather like belligerent teenagers.

     Most elfae folk, even those of us who tend to be Seelie Elfae, find this anger with Mankind and their avaricious, callous and cruel natures, perfectly understandable. If we thought it would help, we’d be angry at them, too, and seek revenge upon them. But from a Seelie point of view that just contributes to the madness that they infuse into the world so instead we seek to do our best (and it is not easy because they are so incalcitrant) to enlighten them and show them the way.

     Of course, the mere fact that Magento and his cohorts wish to punish Mankind for their actions, does not, in itself, make them Unseelie. It does make them somewhat like Men, for Men are very into punishment for every infraction no matter how petty their rules, laws and regulations, but that would only make those elfae a form of dark fae and not necessarily Unseelie. What makes them Unseelie, and this is a curious thing, is their presumption of the fact that they are more powerful, having superpowers, and can subjugate Men. Thus this means to the Magento that they should conquer Men and either eliminate them entirely or control them. However, this is exactly how Men treat other men, although they usually call those other men sub-human due to their race, religion, nationality or some other difference that they have. Even more than that, Men subjugate their own women, their own wives and daughters. The Unseelie’s drive to control Men is little different than Men’s drive to control all that are around them, even each other and their own tendency to be controlled and be submissive to powerful and dominating leaders.

     And what makes this even harder is that this control must continue forever. Often in places where an outer force, such as communism controls a diverse population for decades, such as happened in the former Yugoslavia, this harmonizing of society only holds as long as the control lasts and when it fails, the various groups set about warring with each other and enacting a series of ethnic cleansing pogroms. The solution they offer is genocide, although this seldom works either. Even Man’s ancient attempt at the genocide of the elfae peoples only forced us to go underground, in reality and legend, and metaphorically as well (see our book Through the Mists of Faerie).

     This point of view that the Unseelie X-Men hold toward normal humanity can be seen in Nicholas De Vere’s book The Dragon Legacy where he puts forward the claim that elves are genetically superior to normal folk and should lead and control them. Of course, unfortunately like so many of this sort, he means only pure bred elven and not all those lesser elven, those half-bloods or part-bloods or mud bloods, that fill the world. Where have we heard this racist doctrine before? Oh, yeah, the Nazis, Fascists in general, the Ku Klux Klan and others of that ilk.

     At the same time, we Seelie elfae must admit that we have been less than totally successful in influencing Men toward the good. We’ve had some success, certainly, but not as much as needed to move Men utterly from the destructive course they are bent upon. Still, we’ve observed Men for a long time and have come to realize they seldom make changes willingly until Nature forces them to so do. Look around you, beloved kindred, Nature is speaking.

When Faerie Returns Will There Still be a Race of Men? And Are Elves Halflings, Part Mankind, due to Manifesting in Human Bodies?

July 19, 2020

rainbowSilverblog

. . . having human bodies doesn’t make us men at all but rather makes men (mankind), at least in part and potential, Elfae . . . . Eventually, those who are pretending to be men will become whatever they really are. Trolls will become trolls, grimlins will be become grimlins, kobolds will become kobolds and gnomes, gnomes. And Men (Mankind)? There will be Men who will become Super-Men, super heroes, as they have ever told us. They will use their strength to fight for what is right, to protect the innocent and the weak and make the world a better place, safer place for all. Although, it is true in becoming Super Men, they will be much more like elves and fae.”

tiny_green_7star

Some people think that Mankind will eventually evolve into elves or some other kind of elfae. While that is surely possible, and definitely possible for some “men,” we Silver Elves find it unlikely to be the case for all Men — although we don’t really know. We’re just considering this idea and pondering it to see if it does have any substance to it at all.

     One of the great difficulties with understanding this issue is that Men, like Elves in that sense, are rather hard to define, although for different reasons. Men, which curiously denotes both men and women, seem to ever hold themselves as being dominate over women and if not that, then at least essentially different than women, while at the same time defining them as one race.

     We elves on the other hand have little gender consciousness. We are elves first and foremost and nearly all elves have a balance of their masculine and feminine features of their being even as we manifest as male or female, or both in a particular incarnation. We know that there are differences due to our physical bodies, but our spirits, which are our true s’elves, are ever elves whether we choose to manifest as male or female in any given lifetime. We also note that we may manifest in bodies that go bald, have pointed ears or not, have red, black, brown or blond hair, various eye colors and other material differences that happen to come along with the body we choose as most efficacious for filling our mission in this or some other life. Our true bodies are energy and light and we are well aware of this fact.

     Mankind, on the other hand, doesn’t seem aware of their energetic natures for the most part and this is what leads some individuals to hypothesis that they will transform into more elfin beings when they eventually become awakened to the spiritual nature of the Universe and themselves. And by that we don’t mean religious beliefs but an awakening to the reality that spirit and consciousness are the source of Life and the material world is merely a temporary form we’ve created with our consciousness by formulating light into structure.

     Part of the difficulty may be that Mankind is a kind of catch all term for many races. It is a concept that has been applied to those in human form overall and thus people think we elves are really men or women, that orcs are men, and pixies and brownies and goblins and all manner of folk have been raised with the idea that they are part of Mankind, when in fact they are really something quite different. It is as though we were all made physically to put on the same uniform and thus everyone assumes we must be the same despite quite obvious differences in our being and characters.

     The idea of Mankind is an attempt to organize the world, mostly by those who wish to dominate it but also by those who think that uniformity will create a peaceful society, that differences are the source of conflict in the world and if we would all pretend we were the same then everything would be wonderful.

     But when we come to the realization that we are really all different, what then? Will Men (Mankind) still be Men? When Men realize there is magic in the world, will they still be Men? Of course, this dismissal of magic is mostly a current fad. Men believed in magic in the past and some still do.

     But most men are of a heroic character. They are not so much magicians for the most part, or enchanters like we elves, but warriors. At least that is what their own lore tells us of them. Although, they seem somewhat uncertain about what being heroic actually entails. They seem to confuse it at times with being strong, courageous and powerful but they don’t always remember that heroism isn’t just about fighting and overcoming one’s adversaries, but standing up for what is true and right and good in the world. They are inclined at times to confuse bullying with heroic behavior, but again that may be because some Unseelie races who are not so inclined toward the heroic hide among them.

     But, if we accept Men at their word, and we Silver Elves think we are obligated to do so, at least until they utterly prove otherwise, then Mankind is a spiritual race whose greatest values revolve around being brave and enduring despite all obstacles. Eventually, those who are pretending to be men will become whatever they really are. Trolls will become trolls, grimlins will be become grimlins, kobolds will become kobolds and gnomes, gnomes. And Men (Mankind)? There will be some Men who will become Super-Men, super heroes, as they have ever told us. They will use their strength to fight for what is right, to protect the innocent and the weak and make the world a better place, safer place for all. Although, it is true in becoming Super Men, they will be much more like elves and fae.

“Men (Mankind) say that their sacred books tell them they were made from dust. Our sacred elven magical tomes tell us we elves were made from stardust. So, we are clearly related to Men, only we elves are a bit more sparkly.”
—The Silver Elves

And while we are on the subject of elves and mankind. . . . .

Are Elves Halflings, Part Mankind, due to Manifesting in Human Bodies?

This is an interesting question and it brings to mind another question which is “How much of our being is based upon the body that we choose to or find ours’elves incarnate within.” Certainly, from the point of view of most of Mankind, who currently view the world from a basically materialistic viewpoint due greatly to the influence of the Dark or Material Age or Kali Yuga we are currently in, having human bodies would make us who are elfae beings, at least in part, Men. Although, most of those of us who are elfae have been told in our lives, especially those of us manifesting in male bodies, we are not really ‘real men’ at all. At least, this is according to those men and women who deem themselves self-appointed authorities on this subject.

And honestly, we have no real interest in being considered ‘real men’ and we do not even pretend to be so except in those instances when to do otherwise would be to endanger us — endanger those very bodies — for Men tend to be hostile, paranoid and sometimes violent concerning those whom they view as being different to them, even other men.

Of course, quite a few men have informed us that they were made in the ‘image and likeness’ of their god. If that is the case, then ‘image and likeness’ would essentially indicate their bodies and thus in having humanoid bodies, like men, we would not be halflings who are half men but rather halflings who are half or part divine. And this is surely true. Certainly, we elves have a divine time being together.

However, while we do think that bodies, overall, are rather divine and the human form surely wondrous, we also think dogs, cats, horses, tigers, hawks and other creatures quite wondrous as well in their bodies, as well are the trees, flowers and plants and all manner of being. We elves are of the opinion, however, that, for the most part, it is not our human bodies that make us divine but our elven spirits that link us to the magical and wondrous aspects of the Universe and Nature. Although, we’ve encountered some pretty divine bodies in our time.

Our true link to Mankind, therefore, would not actually be our humanoid bodies, for there are elven trees and elven dogs and elves in various other forms that don’t have human bodies. But, on the contrary, it would be our divine spirit and its magical potential that actually connects us to Mankind as well as to everything else in the Universe, by the function of our soulful being.

We might apply the same sort of question, in a way, to Unicorns. Are Unicorns halfling horses? Or perhaps, mostly horses (usually, for there are also goat unicorns, we’ve photos of ours’elves with one, see the cover of our book Liber Aelph)? Well, sort of. But at the same time, even though Unicorns have a horse body with a horn, it is so special and marvelous that the Unicorn is something quite other really. Something so magical that it is no longer a horse really, but something greater. Perhaps Horse 2.1 or something.

While we elves are clearly related to Men, as we are to the all of life, our bodies do not make us half men. On the contrary, due to the fact that all the legends, lore and myths about us say that we are the Elder people, the first humanoid race that predates the creation of Mankind, having human bodies doesn’t make us men at all but rather makes men, at least in part and potential, Elfae.

you may enjoy reading: The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

“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 —From 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.”
—The Silver Elves

Zardoaquote27

“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.”

How Do Elves Effectively Interact with the Shining Ones?

July 6, 2020

shiningonephoto

“. . . .the Shining Ones are conceived of by we Silver Elves as spirits who have progressed through the process of evolution. And in doing so and through great effort and devotion to development of their being and quite often personal sacrifice on the behalf of others, the Shining Ones have ascended into the subtler yet more expansive dimensions of spiritual being.”

     The Shining Ones for the elves and elfae folk are the equivalent of what most people think of as angels, or what Tolkien would have called the Ainur, which consisted of the Valar and the Maiar. Tolkien’s is a somewhat simpler derivation of the Angelic Hierarchy in traditional Christian angelology, consisting of Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions or Lordships, Virtues or Strongholds or Authorities, Principalities or Rulers, Archangels and Angels. Note, angels are the lowest of the hierarchy with Seraphim being the highest.

     We say the Shining Ones are similar to angels . . . except, instead of the Shining Ones being individuals who were created by some god as is (like in both Tolkien’s and the traditional Christian view) and are thus never changing and are merely representing powers that are obedient (for the most part) to their god’s will, the Shining Ones are conceived of by we Silver Elves as spirits who have progressed through the process of evolution. And in doing so and through great effort and devotion to development of their being and quite often personal sacrifice on the behalf of others, the Shining Ones have ascended into the subtler yet more expansive dimensions of spiritual being.

     So it is that we could interact with the Shining Ones in the way many religious folk communicate with their chosen or inherited deity, saint or angel through the use of prayer, burning candles, creating a magic table (what most folks would call an altar) and so forth, pleading for their intercession into some aspect of our lives. And waiting and trusting an having faith that they will help us.

     From an elven point of view, praying is merely a form of spell casting, although generally with a more whiny and subservient attitude rather than the more confident and will-backed power that is generally used in conjuration. The religious use of magic is along the lines of oh please won’t you do this and the magical view is more we have confidence that this will be done and in your ability to do it. At the same time, we Silver Elves are rather fond of candle burning, magic tables set for various purposes and gifts to the spirits that we seek a relationship with. This is rather like the fact that if we are invited to someone’s house to dinner we might bring a dessert or a bottle of wine, or if we invite them, as we invite the Shining Ones into our lives, we provide the meal for them as our honored guests. We wish to reciprocate for their positive influence in our lives and let them know that we appreciate them and seek closer union and friendship.

     Of course, one could use our book An Elfin Book of Spirits and evoke or invoke the Shining Ones who are listed in that tome in an informal fashion or use ceremonial magick (see our Book of Elven Magick, volume 1 & and also volume 2) in order to draw their attention to one’s life, one’s struggles and one’s aspirations. And we Silver Elves have certainly done this in our lives and continue to do so from time to time when need, vision or purpose arises. We are essentially elven hedgewitches (see our book Elven Hedgewitchery And Found Magic) and our magic is very eclectic, impromptu and ad hoc most of the time.

     Ultimately, however, the Shining Ones are not interested in our prayers nor are they all that interested in our devotion to them. They are not interested in having their egos fanned. Rather, they seek to encourage us to develop the powers and skills that they have obtained, or one’s similar that are suited to our individual natures. We do this by following their example, devoting our own energy to making our own lives better and the lives of those around us and most importantly attempting to develop our own s’elves in every conceivable way.

     It is this concerted attention to improvement, combined with regular and consistent practice and action, that best connects us to the Shining Ones and truly draws their attention toward us and their blessings upon us and our lives. Prayers and incantations, evocations and invocations are not ineffectual entirely, they simply tend to be less effective than direct action. In some ways, for the Shining Ones, they are like commercials one might see on television or even a billboard or even that one gets in one’s snail mail or email that most of which gets immediately consigned to the trash.

     Real action, on the other hand, makes the Shining Ones stand up and pay attention. Just as we tend to pay attention to those we see who are actually doing something. Even if they are not doing it entirely well, we are inclined to watch and perhaps moved to offer suggestions as to how to do things better if, indeed, we have any or know what we are talking about. For there are those in the world who are ever eager to give advice about things of which they have little or no knowledge at all. The Shining Ones, however, have been through it all thems’elves and they know what they are talking about and have the power to back up their advice with energy.

   Make progress in your own spiritual life, dear Kindred, which is to say the life of your spirit, empowering yours’elf in every positive way and the Shining Ones will surely pay heed, nod their approval and do what they can to assist you. And then signs, blessings and magic will just seem to come your way, seemingly by accident, although this will be no accident at all. Synchronicities will occur as they do when one is on their true path and following what we elves call The Elven Way.

THE SHINING ONES:
The Elfin Spirits That Guide You According to
 Your Birth Date and the Evolutionary Lessons They Offer 

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

In reading this book, you will find that there is both a Shining One for each month, as well as a Shining One for each ten degrees of the zodiac, as well as a Shining One for each degree. Be sure and read all three of these that are associated with your or your loved ones particular birth date. For some excerpts and more about this book, please go to: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAshiningones.html

“To traditional magicians, spirits are either demons to be compelled or powers to be implored; but to we elven the spirits are our friends, colleagues and kin, who are not only inclined to help us, but also easily persuaded to do so.”

And for your Magic evoking or invoking the Shining Ones . . . . An Elfin Book of Spirits: Evoking the beneficent powers of Faerie by The Silver Elves

An Elfin Book of Spirits:
Evoking the beneficent powers of Faerie

An Elven Book of Spirits contains 360 spirits with their sigils (sigil drawings are included) and descriptions that help one understand their powers and how they can best be magically evoked for one’s positive use and benefit. We Silver Elves find that this book is one of, if not the most, valuable magical references of Elven Shining Ones for our magic.

Excerpt below from page 11 of An Elfin Book of Spirits:

How This Book [An Elfin Book of Spirits] Came to Be

“Back in 1981 we were thinking about moving to California from Florida where we were living at the time. We wanted a spirit to help us do this but didn’t find one that seemed appropriate to our needs among those in the grimoires and books we had at the time. Zardoa went searching for the right spirit in the Elfin realms of the astral and imaginal planes of being and encountered Migrashea, who was the first spirit from this book that we called and who, within six months, had us successfully relocated in California.”

“Migrashea introduced us to Zorafina whose expertise is bringing the right people together and she guided us to other spirits as we needed them. But it wasn’t until 1985 that we decided to create a grimoire of spirits for our use. Again, Zardoa went exploring on the subtle planes looking for spirits with Zorafina as a guide. However, as before, he didn’t merely look for every spirit he encountered to put in the book but had a list of talents, abilities, powers and needs and looked for the spirits who could best fulfill them. In most cases, as in life in consensual reality, one spirit led to another and most of the spirits were found by reference and introduction from other spirits.”

“We cannot say that we have called and utilized the services of every spirit in this book, however, in the past thirty plus years we have called well over a hundred of them (there are 360 in the book in all) for various purposes and have found them to be in every case both reliable, absolutely trustworthy and effective in their efforts on our behalf.”

electrostar2green2@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 in which to read them (you may view all 50+ of these on our author Amazon page here for the USA and here for UK)! But if you would like a suggestion, you may wish to begin with one or more of these books listed below:
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, volume 1, explores the Elven viewpoint concerning magick and the world, and traditional spiritual and religious myths. It covers all the color magicks, the tools of magic, and gives magical ceremonies that may be adapted for use by modern elves, magicians, and faerie folk. The Book of Elven Magick, The Philosophy and Enchantments ofthe Seelie Elves, Volume 2, continues the progression of the color magicks and proceeds on into the nature and establishment of the Elven Vortex/Coven, using mudras and tattoos in magic, using mantras in magic, our theories on calling the directions/dimensions, magical words of power, and much more. It is the completion of and companion to volume 1.

We also suggest that 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.

What is Elven Reawakening?

June 5, 2020

Zardoa_magic

“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. . . . . . “

tiny_green_7star

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.

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

June 5, 2020

BeyondDeathCoverweb

“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.”
— The Silver Elves

“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.

  tiny_green_7star

     If we consider that nearly all fae 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 type, just as they have a sexual preference for blonds or whatever and may 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 kintype.

     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 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 disapprove of those who are transkinder (those otherkin who may shapeshift into various otherkin types) in some form or other or 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. To be clear, transkinder (along with those otherkin who are not shapeshifters) and transgender are two completely different communities, and a person is not one just because they are the other. Otherkin is not a subset of the trans/nonbinary community. However, both transkinder of the otherkin community and transgender individuals are all essentially shapeshifters (even if they are shifting with a different set of philosophical concerns relating to identity and ontological being) and they are both quite 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 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 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 that most appeal to us and which, quite often, those we find we are good at and that others encourage us to pursue. or 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.

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.

ELVES, FAERIES, FAE, AND OTHERKIN TRIBES

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