What Is the Magic of Being an Elf? And Why is Magic Slower to Manifest on the Material Plane?

“. . . the true magic, our true power as elves and elfae originates from the fact that as we continue on the path of Elfin, dance together along the Elven Way, we become incredibly lucky. And this is not something we do or create directly, but an incidental side effect of being and living the life Elfin. This is not something we directly control by the power of our will but by being in touch and attuned in our inner beings and our outer behaviors with Elfin and Faerie, we draw luck to us like a magnet attracts iron filings. . . . Compared to the higher planes where one’s thoughts can create reality nearly instantly, then yes, we Silver Elves would say that magic is always slower on the material plane. But then, that is its purpose.  . . . It was created. . . . for the very reason that we needed to slow things down and put some time between our thinking and the manifestation of our thoughts into reality or really into form or structure. “

What is the magic of being an elf?

We have discussed in these blog articles how one begins upon the Elven Path and proceeds to follow the Elven Way (see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), however, what is just as important and, in many ways, more significant is what happens upon the path as one continues to pursue it. In many ways, starting upon a spiritual and magical path is easy. This is especially so if one is awakened and inspired by other elfae beings for then there is a sort of relevatory experience that attends one’s awakening and that peak experience or spiritual high helps one to launch ones’elf unto the path and get at least a metaphorical mile or two down the road before one confronts some of the day-to-day realities of living the life elfin.

For while one has changed as a person somewhat in realizing that they are an elfae or otherkin of some sort, the world around one remains essentially the same. One’s perception of it might transform in time and one may gain Elf Sight and thus see the energetic underpinnings of the world and be able to perceive Elfin and Faerie, as well as, begin to see orcs, faeries, goblins, brownies and all manner of elfae folk about one among those who seemed quite normal previously. One is able to see through their glamor to the truth beneath.

But for the most part, our first understanding of our elfae nature doesn’t tend to immediately alter our day-to-day habits and behaviors nor does it change the various challenges one often faces in the world nor the way we interact with others. It is, in its way, rather like when one first falls in love, but in time that feeling usually fades, one is no longer levitating and one is faced with confronting life once again on a gravity bound planet.

And, in addition to this, one is frequently confronted with the fact that some of the people who were upon the path along with you fall away or wander off the path and you discover, and this is usually mostly true of those who seemed the most devotedly fanatical about it all, that for them it was just a fad after all. When the enchantment wears off, they wander elsewhere seeking that same high again rather like individuals who go from one relationship to another ever seeking to fall in love over and over and over again. In the circles of those who use drugs, this is sometimes referred to as Chasing the Dragon, but one can never really experience that initial high again.

It can be hard to tread this, or any, path alone. One naturally seeks one’s elfin kin and without them it seems a long weary road. However, if one does persevere, and only the truly elfin ever do so, one will find that certain magical powers begin to develop. These are not, for the most part, the sort of Harry Potter magics one sees in movies. Those would be nice to have, of course, but the fact of the matter is that most of those powers are only ours when we are out of the human body, which means in our dreams, our fantasies or the Between Life realms. In those realms, we have great power and can pretty much create and do anything we will, but here on gravity bound Earth, limited by the bodies we inhabit, the magic powers we acquire are mostly those of enchantment (see our book The Keys to Elfin Enchantment), which is to say they involve, for the most part, the power of the personality, the development of our personal and collective aura and therefore our developing charismatic abilities.

As we work on ours’elves and make determined effort to increase our ability to cooperate, harmonize and work in coordination with each other there is much we can accomplish that seemed near to impossible previously. And if that were all, that would surely be enough.

However, the true magic, our true power as elves and elfae originates from the fact that as we continue on the path of Elfin, dance together along the Elven Way, we become incredibly lucky. And this is not something we do or create directly, but an incidental side effect of being and living the life Elfin. This is not something we directly control by the power of our will but by being in touch and attuned in our inner beings and our outer behaviors with Elfin and Faerie, we draw luck to us like a magnet attracts iron filings. We may not always know what, or when or where this luck will come but we are always grateful as well as amazed when it does. Be elfin, beloved, be lucky. After all, we are amazingly lucky to be elves.

Why Is Magic Slower to Manifest on the Material Plane?

Compared to the higher planes where one’s thoughts can create reality nearly instantly, then yes, we Silver Elves would say that magic is always slower on the material plane. But then, that is its purpose. It was created, some might say intentionally and other accidentally, for the very reason that we needed to slow things down and put some time between our thinking and the manifestation of our thoughts into reality or really into form or structure. For the material world (Earthly plane) is primarily a plane of form. Its very reason for being is to create functional laws and pathways through which magic can manifest in, hopefully, reasonable and sensible ways that don’t create conflict and in which everyone, every spirit, can fulfill its will perfectly without interfering with or interference from others.

In the Between realms, that is to say between one incarnation and another, our thoughts and desires manifest immediately all around us. Buddha in his many forms tells us that these created worlds are an illusion, which is to say what we manifest in that realm is comparable to a dream. It seems real at the time but when we wake up ….  In the Between, we are creating our own dream worlds, independent in their way from other dream worlds happening all around us.

This is true in a sense in this physical world as well, in which people often live in bubbles of reality, unaware of the lives, struggles and tribulations of others, and certain that their own thoughts constitute the truth, just because they think them. In a certain sense, they are right, but it is a limited sense and a very isolated one and thus one that doesn’t exercise the full potential of the soul, which is our connection to others and to the Universe at large. The ultimate goal is the fulfillment of our spirits in soulful connection to all others in as much as they will allow this to be so.

In the beginning, which is to say on the seventh and most subtle plane of manifestation, we are all one. Our souls are One/Unite and attuned, and our spirits, our individual drives and aspirations were just emerging. There, when we did magic, our desires came into being instantly. We might consider this as being movement and thus creating the idea of sequential development and time. It was the first motion into manifest being. Alas, as numbers of us became mobile, we began bumping into each other. All our desires, all becoming real, all at the same time, but not all in harmony with each other.

We were differentiating and those differences were sorting themselves out into form. In time, these collisions resulted in what we might call a Big Bang and we began manifesting planes that were a bit slower in manifesting our magic, which is our thoughts/ideas or images, desires and feelings and our individual drives toward s’elf realization. We were creating form, but in doing so we were also limiting each other, putting a bit of time between our thoughts and their manifestation, because instant manifestation resulted in a bit of a mess. Just look around you. As Above, So Below, this world is a reflection of that one. This is, of course, a different view of the creation, a more transcendental one than the idea in which God is the sole creator of all things and everyone should bow to his will that one finds in most monotheistic religions and say in Tolkien’s The Silmarillion.

Now that we are past the half way point of the Kali Yuga, the Dark or most Materialistic Age, we are headed toward a situation where the world will become more spiritualized, which is to say more infused with spirit and thus more responsive to magic and its instantaneous fulfillment. However, this is not an automatic development, and everything depends upon our own evolution as spirits. The greater power we obtain over our own thoughts, desires and behaviors, the greater our power to manifest what we wish quickly and become true Adepts.

Some people, through time, have interpreted that to mean that we must dominate ours’elves as well as gain dominance over others and while there is some truth to the idea that being dominant helps one attain power in the world and thus achieve what one desires more quickly, the fact is that domination always breeds rebellion, on the one hand or mindless subservience, on the other. And this is true both within ours’elves and with others whom we might seek to dominate. Resulting once more in chaos.

The key for the elves has always been enchantment (see our book The Keys to Elfin Enchantment), by which we obtain joyous and willing cooperation from others, putting the greatest limitations and the most demands upon ours’elves, without being overall strict, which would cause the body to rebel, and. therefore, serving as an example for others. In this way, we eventually achieve all we wish as spirits through our soulful connection to each other. We all rise together, soulfully attuned and every spirit achieves its own natural fulfillment. We help each other as best we may and all our magics come to be just as quickly as they can for there is nothing to obstruct them.

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

Want to be Gifted an Elf Name in Arvyndase, the Magical Language of the Silver Elves?

August 14, 2019

zardoa_heibloehole
Want An Elf Name Gifted by The Silver Elves?
We Silver Elves have been gifting elf names for decades, now over 6,000 names, in our beautiful magical elven language, Arvyndase!

tiny_green_7star

Would you like an elf name? We do not charge for this service. We would be happy to give you one but we need to first find out a little about who you are and what your interests are. By learning more about you, we can select an elven name for you that fits you spiritually and magically. Please email us (silverelves@live.com) with your request and put “request for elf name” in the subject line. Here are a few suggestions of questions you might answer to tell us about yourself and help us pick a name that is just right for you:

1. Do you have an elfin name already or otherkin name? If so what is it?

2. How did you come to awaken/realize that you were “other” and what is your brief history of your “elfin” life in this lifetime?What sort of elf, fae, or otherkin are you? If you don’t know, what do you feel? (If you don’t write at least a paragraph on this we may not know enough to give you a name!)

3. Do you have a preference for a masculine or feminine name?

Once we receive your email, we will email you back (usually within a couple of weeks) and give you your new elf name, pronunciation, and magical meaning of the name.

Also, while you don’t have to tell us, we’d love to know what city, state, country you are writing from. This is strictly for our own personal interest. We’ve had requests over the years from places as far flung as Russia, Brazil, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, Israel and Croatia and all of Western Europe.

And if you are still having questions about your kin type, you may wish to check out our questionnaire on  What Kind of Elf, Fae, or Otherkin Are You? The Silver Elves will help you discover your true tribe and gift you a magical narrative based on your questionnaire. Click here to read more.

Also, if you would like to read about our Silver Elves book we have published on Amazon that contains a dictionary of 5.600 of the elf names we have already gifted people over the years, please click here.

Our Book on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arvyndase-Silverspeech-Course-Magical-Language/dp/1475116071
Arvyndase is a complete elven language! This book contains a short course in using  Arvyndase, which means SilverSpeech, a 30,000+ word language created by the Silver Elves. There are nine chapters in the book with 30 lessons in each chapter or 270 lessons altogether. The book uses a process of word substitution to gradually introduce the student to the use of the language while it speaks about the language itself, its creation, and the philosophy of the Elves. It is a language primarily created to be used in magic spells, rituals, and incantations. This book also includes a chapter of spells in Arvyndase, three scripts for use with the language, and a small dictionary of words used in the book for easy reference. This book will tell you about how the language is formed, prefixes and suffixes used, and other aspects of the language. It also contains many observations about elven magic and philosophy.
Arvyndase was created primarily to use with magic so elfin magicians, wizards, enchanters, sorcerers and other magic wielders could create and chant their spells in a magical language. This is why the last chapter in the book contains 30 invocations that can be fitted into magical rituals. Also in the appendices you will find three scripts, Arvyndase, Sylvyn and Wizard’s Script that we created to be used with the language.

What Kind Of Elf, Fae, Or Otherkin Are You? What is Your Elf Tribe?

August 14, 2019

Z_Silver_celebrate

The Silver Elves have been pursuing the Elven Path since 1975 and over that time we’ve had numerous sisters and brothers write to us asking if we could help them understand what sort of elf or fae they might be. And many also wish to know what is their Elfae or Otherkin tribe and what they are like as a magical people? You may 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 about your specific people and your clan, their personal characteristics, magic, relationship to Nature, and interests. This is our gift to you, which we think will be a bit of fun for both of us.

Now, we expect that most of the folks who will take this questionnaire will be elves, pixies, brownies, faeries or other fae but we have also set it up to help Therians and Otherkin of various sorts, since we occasionally get inquiries from them as well.

This is not an automatic response questionnaire. When you are done you will not get some already formulated reply. We need you to send your answers to the questions to our email address at silverelves@live.com and we will examine what you have said and do our best to aid you in this quest. You may wish to copy and paste the questionnaire into an email to us and add your answers there.

In responding to these questions, we suggest that you do so mainly in an instinctive and intuitive way. Trust your feelings. Don’t second-guess yours’elf and don’t mull things over long. Your first inclination to respond a particular way is most likely the most accurate response. Don’t over think it. And, in as much as possible, be succinct in your answers. We will attempt to get back to you as quickly as we are able but depending on the number or requests this could take a couple of weeks or even a month. Good luck, we look forward to hearing from you, and many Elfin Blessings.

Quick announcement! While we are still enjoying writing these narratives and look forward to your participation, we are happy to announce that we have published in March 2019, ELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin and its companion book FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. You may click on these book links and read all about them and excerpts from each book, including some samples of the over 300 tribe narratives contained in these books. These books contain only the narratives we have written for people filling out this questionnaire and no personal names are associated with them in the publication. In fact, we do not keep people’s names, so your questionnaire is completely confidential.

Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way

August 9, 2019

HedgewitcheryBook
Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic:
Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way
by The Silver Elves

Sold here on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK

We Silver Elves are so very pleased to announce the publication of our newest book Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way. In this book, we share with you many of our favorite magical elven art projects that we have enjoyed doing in the last 40+ years and give you guidance and detailed instructions for creating your own and using them in your magic, along with over 100 photos to demonstrate the art processes. Also, this is a book of elven spells and enchantment magic, with elven rhyming magical spells (200 in total) that you may use in rituals to empower your art and magic with each magical item and creative project.

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

In Elven tradition, there is not quite the strict line between formally educated magic and hedgewitchery, or s’elf educated or street magic. Perhaps this is true in part because most magic wielders of these days have to be at least a bit (and usually quite a bit) s’elf educated, gaining our understanding though practice and sharing our knowledge with each other. People often ask us to tell them more about how we do our magic each day and to describe our rituals. There is no better way to understand our elfin magical practices than to study our art, how we make it and how we use it (except to come spend some time with us, of course). Our art and magic are intertwined, and we are sharing with you in this book a real “how to” glimpse into our magic and enchantment spell crafting through our elven creative process of art-making.

This is a book of magic — very practical magic that involves the creation of one’s magical tools, which include wands, staffs, rattles, crowns, hoods, robes and many other instruments of magic and, in this case in particular, of elven magic and enchantment. So it is only natural that we include spells in this book for all magical items that you can use in charging your instruments and tools. Of course, you can always make up your own or alter them as needed. However, the spell you use may vary with the purpose of the tool you are making. For instance, wands might be made for a variety of specific purposes. It is also possible that a wand would be an all-purpose or general purpose wand, like a doctor who is a general practitioner rather than a specialist, but it is also possible to have a wand for a specific purpose. In elven lore, usually magical tools, such as a ring of power, have a particular ability associated with them. The One Ring of Tolkien’s lore, for instance, gave the wearer the power of invisibility, although curiously, it did the opposite for Sauron and seemed to give him substance. Perhaps it related to the plane the individual wearing it was on. If the person was a regular material being, it would make them invisible, which is to say, less material, but if the person was a more etheric being, such as Sauron, it gave him power and form in the material world. Most magical items in magical lore are of this nature, seven league boots, invisibility cloaks and so on, each offering a specific power. So we offer you a variety of spells that reflect the usual uses of the magical item in question. (As you scroll down this page, you will see that we have given you a few examples of spells from the book).

You will notice that most of the spells in Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic are rhyming or chanting spells and might be called mantras, which is not to say that all mantras are rhymed, although most elven mantras/spells are. This is not only because we Silver Elves love making up little rhymes but also because traditionally spells are often rhymed. Rhymed enchantments are easy to remember and create a certain vibration and radiance in their rhyme, which is a certain magic all in itself and has a bit of a hypnotic or trance effect to it as well. So when doing the incantation, make it vibrant, let it hum or sing in your mind or as you resonant it out loud. Remember, the Universe is made of energy, vibrating at various frequencies. In vibrating your spell, you are attuning to Nature and the Universe. The frequency will depend upon your own voice that will make it perfectly suited to you, your nature and your specific enchantment.

Also, all of the 200 spells in this book are presented in both English and Arvyndase (the magical language of The Silver Elves), along with the pronunciation in Arvyndase. Using this elven language will increase the magic of the spell you are casting, but of course, your own intention and effort is what most effects the magic. We often use Arvyndase in our art-making, particularly writing our magic on our wands and staffs, in our books of shadows, and our magic traveling rocks, all of which are covered in Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic.

Often in books about magic, people talk of making wands by going to a tree, finding an appropriate branch, thanking the tree for its donation, sometimes asking it for permission first and intuiting the answer and so on and then cutting off the branch. In old stories of witchcraft, spells are often put together using an herbal concoction, so to speak, with the eye of newt (very popular apparently) and tail of salamander and so forth. We elves prefer found magic. We don’t go to the forest or nearby woods and cut a branch from a tree, rather we find a branch that has fallen or that we have otherwise come across and use as the basic part of our wands accepting it as a sort of gift from the Earth and the Universe, which is to say from the Divine Magic.

This, to us, is part of our Elven Hedgewitchery. The gifts of Nature are abundant and most of the magical items we create are gifts of Nature, or sometimes gifts from other folk, or most often a combination thereof. It is sometimes said that nothing in life is free, and yet these elves have all sorts of things that we have come by freely, without theft, mind you, that we use in our magical creations. Buttons come to us, pieces of jewelry (some of these broken but still usable for our art), clothes, cloth, ribbon, lace, embroidery thread and sewing thread, wire, string, cord, and all sort of things as you will discover as you explore this magical tome of elven art. The elven art, really, of making magic.

This is a book of Elven Hedgewitchery and as you will see upon reading it, it isn’t really about doing things exactly the way we have done them but about inspiring you, as much as possible, to look around your own elven home and the environment you live in and see what is easily, freely or inexpensively available to you so you may create your own elven art, magic pieces, clothes and other items to manifest Elfin in your own life and for your kindred, and in that way express your individual elfae nature.

     Also, we encourage you to collect, collect, collect, especially those things that others have failed to see the value in but are still wonders to your eyes. We promise you, if you do this and use your magical collections to create enchanted art and elven fashion, more treasures will come to you, out of the blue and from the Mists of Faerie and the Twilight Realms of Elfin.

“Elf witches are much like other witches, except instead of attempting to make particular things happen as we desire, we seek to assist Nature to fulfill Destiny perfectly. For that is what we truly desire, anyway.” —The Silver Elves

What Does the Elven Word “Kyela” Mean in Arvyndase, the Language of the Silver Elves?

July 24, 2019

Blessings1744

We Silver Elves often use the Arvyndase word Kyêla (key – L – lah) as a parting salutation for our emails, much in the way one would write ‘love’ or ‘sincerely’ at the end of the letter before signing their name. In our case, we frequently sign our letter The Silver Elves, rather than giving our personal names, as for instance if we wrote Zardoa for the Silver Elves or Silver Flame for the Silver Elves, etc. as is common practice among many folks. This leads some people to mistakenly believe that Kyêla is, in fact, one of our names, which, as it happens, it is, although it is not one of our given names but, in fact, the Arvyndase version of our surname ‘Love.’ For Kyêla means love, although it means love in an affectionate and potentially romantic way. For the elves, romance is always in the air.

As it happens there are at least six words, including Kyêla, that mean ‘love’ in our elven language Arvyndase (or Silverspeech). Like the ancient Greeks, we see love in a variety of ways and have different words for variations of love’s manifestations. Besides Kyêla, there is Jålar (pronounced jah – lair) which means love in a divine fashion in which one feels a unity with the all of life. There is feas (fee – ace) which is love used in a fashion similar to the word ‘like’ and usually applied to non-beings, such as when one says I really love (feas) the Lord of the Rings books. And it is used in much the same way as it is an English as an emphasis for one’s feeling of liking something.

There is also the Arvyndase word ‘ford,’ which is pronounced as it is in English, which means the love that one has for one’s soulmate, family member or best friend. It is similar in some ways to the difference in the singular use of the words tu and vous (both meaning you) in French, with tu being less formal than vous. Here, ford is a less formal sort of love and indicates friends, family or loved ones, one can relax around.

There is also the word ‘feln’ (pronounced feel-n) that denotes that special feeling of kinship and intimacy that elves feel for each other. It, of course, could be extended to fae folk in general, and also be used by others to mean the special feeling that exists among members of their particular group.

And there is ‘rynt’ (rent) that is used to indicate the concept of love overall in all of its forms. One could ask, for instance, What is your definition of rynt (love)? Or when people sometimes say, “I don’t believe in rynt (love),” although usually when saying this they really mean, “I don’t believe in kyêla or romantic love.”

When we first conceived the word Kyela, we thought about spelling it keyla, which in Arvyndase would be equally acceptable and would still be pronounced the same way. However, we realized right away that people unfamiliar with Arvyndase would pronounce it key – lah, if we spelled it that way and we didn’t wish that. In fact, in Arvyndase a ‘y’ sometimes takes on the sound of the vowel or consonant following it. So the ‘y’ in kyela, is pronounced like a long ‘e’. However, the ‘e’ after it has an accent upon it and becomes like the ‘e’ in dell. Otherwise, it would be key – eel – lah.

At the same time, you probably noticed in the above paragraph that we didn’t put the accent upon it, which should be a single dot and not a circumflex as here, however our computer doesn’t have a special character with a dot over the ‘e’ thus we make do. And, since it is inconvenient to put that dot or circumflex over the ‘e’ in kyêla every time we use it, we sometimes let it slide, since we know how to pronounce it.

And that’s the thing about Arvyndase as a language and really, in fact, most languages. There is a certain flexibility in their use. There are regional accents and various ways of pronouncing words. Just as the word Pho, that is usually the first part of the name of Vietnamese restaurants, isn’t pronounced pho, like in phone, but rather fah or foo, like in foot without the ‘t,’ depending upon the region in Vietnam where the individual haled from.

And we expect that if Arvyndase ever was adapted for wider use as an elven language  than our own use of it mainly as a language of magic, spellcasting and enchantment, the same would occur for it. For we elves are an adaptable folk, and we do our best to adjust to all situations, while subtly radiating our own magic and influence within them, moving them, as best we may, toward a successful conclusion for everyone.

For decades the Silver Elves have been gifting magical elf names in the elven language Arvyndase to those needing a bit of encouragement in their awakening sense of their elven or other natures. We’ve also received request for elf names from game players, writers, people wishing to name their babies and many more.

from the Eternal Sacred Silver Flame of Elfin,
dancing now toward the stars.”

Why Do Elven Witches Call their Covens “Vortexes”?

July 2, 2019
ElfWitch
“This idea of the vortex as an elven coven was published back in 1974-76 when the Elf Queen’s Daughters was quite active and the Elf Magic Letters were sent out regularly and described the various vortexes (vortices) that existed at that time. . . . The elven idea has ever been that we are the vortex of power. It is our very coming together and living together, creating elven communities that creates this aura, atmosphere and domain of Elfin and Faerie and their powers manifest. . . . We are, in fact, a vortex of swirling, shimmering energy growing stronger as we grow closer together in harmony and mutual appreciation.”

2_3_7tinystarOur sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (EQD) wrote in the 70s that we elves referred to our covens as vortexes (or you may use the proper spelling of the plural “vortices”). This idea, however, was meant to also describe the small ealds of the EQD where various sisters and brothers had gathered together to live and do their elven magic and ply their elfin enchantments from there and out into the world, such as the vortex of the Fox River elves, our own Elves of the Southern Woodlands vortex, and the vortex our elf sister Tasa’s Hood River vortex. Thus, the vortex was a coven and also an eald or demesne of Elfin and a gathering of elfin being all at the same time. This idea of the vortex as an elven coven was published back in 1974-76 when the Elf Queen’s Daughters was quite active and the Elf Magic Letters (see our books Elf Magic Mail, vols. 1 and volume 2, that contain all of these letters) were sent out regularly and described the various vortexes (“vortices”) that existed at that time.

Witches’ covens are composed of members who come together and seek to raise the Cone of Power, which is, in fact, the Vortex of power and energy. The elven idea has ever been that we are the vortex of power. It is our very coming together and living together, creating elven communities that creates this aura, atmosphere and domain of Elfin and Faerie and their powers manifest.

This meaning of the Vortex of power and energy and thus elven covens being vortexes, is in keeping with another idea that our sisters of the EQD wrote about (and that we have seen repeated numerous times since) that we elves don’t so much do magic as “we are magic.” This goes along with the distinction we tend to make between magic as it is generally practiced as a power-over or dominating energy and as an enchantment (see our book The Keys to Elfin Enchantment) with magic practiced as an energy promoting and encouraging cooperation and mutual success and fulfillment. The enchanted do what we will, not because we force them to do so but because they find joy in doing so. Tolkien also made this distinction between magic and enchantment in his scholarly article On Fairy-Stories.

We have written elsewhere on the fact that it was our sisters of the EQD who in the 70s first used the seven-pointed acute angle star as the Elven Star, sometimes called the Faerie Star, that has become so popular in Elfae culture around the world. We carried on using this star, not only personally, by wearing it as an amulet around our necks for the last 40+ years, but also publishing it in our Magical Elven Love Letters (see volume 1, volume 2, and volume 3 of our books of the same title). And clearly, it got adopted and adapted and carried on and passed on by others of our kindred. In many ways, we could say that the elven star is the symbol of the energy transmitted by the elven vortexes from the tribe of our ancestors to the elven tribes of the ancient future.

While we don’t know the exact links from us as sister/brothers of the EQD onward, what is clear is that there is something about the Elven Star that calls to the hearts and imaginations of myriads of Elfae kindred everywhere and its prominence in the Elfae and Otherkin community may be due to something very similar to Jung’s idea of the Collective Unconscious, only with a less genetic and material basis for it and a more spiritual, mythic, imaginal and energetic Collective Unconscious. It is not so much memories and information secreted within our bodies as it is our culture hidden and carried within our souls and spirits. In doing our Elven, Fae and Otherkin tribe survey (see: https://silverelves.wordpress.com/2019/08/14/what-kind-of-elf-fae-or-otherkin-are-you-what-is-your-tribe), while we create narratives for our kindred based upon their specific answers to our questionnaire and we look mostly for what is unique about each tribe in doing so, we have still found many similarities among the Elfae folk of various tribes.

Our point here is that there is an energetic and soulful connection between and among the Elfae folk that inclines us toward a recognition of certain ideas and images. The Elven/Faerie Star is surely one of these, but so is the idea that we are magic within our very beings. We are, in fact, a vortex of swirling, shimmering energy growing stronger as we grow closer together in harmony and mutual appreciation. It is not that we are all the same, for certainly we are not, but that there is an energetic connection between us that is carried on from life to life and by which we are able to recognize our own kindred by sense and feeling if not by sight alone or seeing through the glamor that most of us have woven around ours’elves in order to pass safely through what can be, at times, a hostile world.

If you add to that the fact that we learn the esoteric secrets of Elfin magic mostly through osmosis, which is to say direct contact (as an oral tradition or we might say as a “living tradition”), most often in the flesh with our kindred, and we learn mostly through example, it becomes clear that our culture is not a stagnant one that is limited by doctrines, dogmas or religious structures, but an active spiral of energetic togetherness,. This increases in power in association with each other. Reach out, beloved kindred, let us grow our enchantments ever stronger in the vortex of our togetherness.

“Together our Magic is Stronger By Far!”
(In Arvyndase, The language of The Silver Elves:
“Eldan elina eldon da mylthfa la uli”)
[Pronounced: “Eldan (eel-dane) elina (e-lie-nah) eldon (L-doan) da (dah) mylthfa (mill-th-lah-fah) la (lah) uli (you-lie)” ]

Each of these three books is a collection of letters with dominate themes of what it means to be an elf and the elven way of life, the Shinning Ones, Elven magic and elven culture. These letters were written by The Silver Elves to encourage elves to awaken to their Elfin nature, to be true to their individual destiny, and to embrace their starry heritage. They are filled with Elven Philosophy and observe the world from the point of view of the Elves, which is often quite unique from how most people view and experience the world; and their unique Elven Philosophy of Magic that is often similar and yet distinct from traditional theories and methods of magic.

magicalletters1
The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1
This book contains our very first Magical Elven Love Letters
and a few of our early internet letters.

A Sample letter from The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 1:

“letter number 1-15. . . . a crystal is a million stars united
It is our way to look within to our own spirits for the harmony and peace from which the creative energy of the Great Mother Nature flows outward to perceive a new world of unity. So it is through this inward looking that we reflect in our words and actions clear vision of our s’elves. Our vision mirrors in all directions to the world its purest part… the s’elf in All.”

“We, through the ages, have striven to obtain a clearer vision of our s’elves. The world of conflicts remind us that we still have far to go, a journey long, long, long it is… a journey to the stars. A journey to the stars within us. We seek to transcend outer conflict by turning within to our own s’elves. Our true s’elves, our inner identity goes much deeper and yet is simpler far than the encult*urated roles we play as we pass into and out of the worlds. By seeking Elfin within ours’elves and by striving to see “the elf” that is in everyone we obtain a clearer vision of the life we once knew… the unity of all.”

“We play the roles of society for the sake of preserving unity. Still the archetypical forms with which we do identify are far from the structured worlds of social standing and IQ ratings. No more of it. We have come to dance and sing and listen to birds… remembering ages long gone by enough to come again… come again.”

“Elfin is for us not so much a place we can go, as a place we can be. It is the energy we expend toward becoming more gentle and more loving… the effort to evolve and develop our inner natures, our modesty and adaptability and our unending purpose to respect and be fair to all creatures whatsoever… these are the real steps to Elfin and it is our wish that all the Elves might transform those steps into a dance of love that will be to the children a bright and radiant mandala whose center is the dawning of a gentle race.”

“Elfin is open to all people whatsoever, yet it is equally true to say that at the present time/space juncture there are very few who are open to Elfin and thus they could never enter it. These folk can never even see the elves even when we are sharing a space/time. We, by nature, strive for union… it is our way… with these folks as with all. We share the air, the swaying of the trees, the song of the bird… invisible magic vibrations emanate and we are all the better for the experience and it “lit the fire to the soul who never knew its friend”. It is not our purpose to impose elfinness upon anyone… an act impossible in its core and no true elf would try… yet for those who are open, whose inner heart remembers a tune half forgotten from long, long ago and far, far away, we move ever deeper into the Faerielands. Come along, elves. It is a long journey ahead but together it can be a great adventure. A new land, a new life, a new people and a brighter day.”

“There comes a moment in each elf’s life when standing on the border of twilight that lies between the world of normal reality and the elfin lands beyond… a realization comes of a sudden that the twilight is fading and that they must move of their own into the Faerielands or remain in the world of the everyday. We are going, brothers and sisters, into the Elfin realms and our hearts are alive with the memory of ancient lifetimes when we were all together. Our minds remember not but in our hearts dwell memories that cannot be obscured through the aeons of life and death. As we watch you, standing on the border hesitant, drifting, listening to the voice of the thousand misgivings, the lies, the rationalizations, we sing to you gently: Remember… Remember… Remember long ago, or… was it only yesterday or soon to be tomorrow. We are going and trust that our children’s children’s children will emerge in the vibrational reality of Arda reborn: a planet healed and paradise won.

 

“The way to Elfin is found on the path

That weaves through the Misty Forest

That lives between the Mountain of Vision

And the River of Reality”

The Magical Elven Love Letters, Volume 2 is a continuation of our internet letters with a few early letters that were not in the first book. You can find samples of these letters on various sites all over the web, for they were some of our most popular letters and have been copied and spread around frequently. It is not necessary to read Volume 1 before reading and enjoying Volume 2. These letters give the reader an experiential understanding of what it is to be an elf and enter the realm of Faerie and Magick.

Are the Silver Elves High Elves or Low Elves?

June 23, 2019
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“. . . . we Silver Elves don’t really have a concept of High Elves and low elves, but more of high paths and low paths that we may follow. . . . eventually everyone who is elven or elfae in nature will sooner or later come upon the Path That Rises Toward the Stars, and lift up their feet and begin to step upon it. That is the Destiny of all Elfin Folk.”

   The truth is we Silver Elves don’t really have a concept of High Elves and low elves, but more of high paths and low paths that we may follow. We know the idea of high elves and low elves can be found in Tolkien’s works, as well as in Warhammer, Forgotten Realms and D&D and we expect also in Magic The Gathering. Tolkien, apparently, uses this term to distinguish between those of the Elven who have been to and seen the magical and spiritual realms of Elfin across the western seas and those elves who have never been there. In that way, it seems to reflect the distinction that we are told is made by some Israelis, who see a difference between those Jewish and Hebrew folks who were born and raised in Israel and those who migrated there from other countries.

     We Silver Elves, however, don’t view the world of Elfin in that way. Rather, we observe that some elves are on the high path of Elfin and live The Elven Way and there are others who are on the lower paths of Elfin and are still very much influenced by the enculturation of their youth and the materialistic viewpoint of the world that currently exists around them. They are usually still pursuing the social goals that society has inculcated them to believe represents success and s’elf certification, although they don’t always realize they are doing so.

     And yet, we, all of us, have certainly tread the lower path at some point, and occasionally will do so again. And the interesting aspect of walking upon the high path is that it deepens, widens and strengthens one’s soul, which means one’s ability to connect to and thus enchant others. The sort of separatist notion that High Elf and low elf seems to evoke (particularly if the person feels they are High elves and thus more evolved than others) is not a reality of being upon the High Path, for as one continues on that Path, one becomes less inclined to seek to separate ones’elf from others, feels less need to seek to present ones’elf as being better, greater and more evolved, and more likely to embrace others, seek to understand them and do what one can to help them wherever they may be upon the Path, high or low. Separation, exclusion, and social hierarchy are a feature of the low path, not the high.

     It is important to understand that being on the high path or low path, is often just a matter of circumstances and evolutionary development. We don’t look down on little children as being less intelligent or lesser as beings or less spiritually evolved than us just because we can run faster, lift more weight and do other things that they cannot as yet do, or that we have knowledge and education they don’t as yet have. For the point is that eventually everyone who is elven or elfae in nature will sooner or later come upon the Path That Rises Toward the Stars, and lift up their feet and begin to step upon it. That is the Destiny of all Elfin Folk.

     Our job, or dharma, or mission, or quest or geas or whatever you might call it, is not to hold ours’elves above others but to set an example that they may be able to follow from and is relevant to wherever they may currently be. And we do this mostly by embracing them as kindred and pursuing our own path, high or low, as best we are able to do so our own s’elves.

     It is true that there are those who are under the impression that we Silver Elves are very highly evolved elves, even saintly (if elves had saints) or holy, although we’ve never made any claim to being so, and we always point out to those individuals that the high spiritual nature they are seeing in us is a projection of the truly evolved and spiritual aspect of their own inner beings. We are just a reflection of their own inner natures. In Jungian Psychology, this is sometimes referred to as the Bright Shadow Projection.

     Of course, some folks seek to do the opposite. To treat us as though we are low elves, or sometimes even mere pretenders, while they are the High True Elven and don’t realize they are doing the same thing, only they are evoking their Dark Shadow aspect instead of the Bright. Projecting in that way their own insecurities and feelings of inadequacy upon us. We nurture them all as best we may but sometimes you just have to let some of them wander in their own realms of darkness crashing into things until they realize there is not as much light there as they imagined. And yet, when they truly seek guidance we will always do our best, as long as we are able, to assist all our kindred.

     In our elven point of view, we see The Shining Ones, those elfin and fae who have evolved through lifetimes of experience and effort into the more expansive yet more subtle realms of being, to be further along the high Path, but not really higher or lower as elves, as all elves are Shining Ones in potential. The bodies of the Shining Ones are less physical in a sense and yet more manifest. While their bodies tend to be constructed principally with light, starlight in particular, they may exist and manifest not only in the three dimensional world with us, but also in the fourth and other dimensions. In that sense, they are more manifest than we and have a wider range of experience and activity. They inspire us through signs and omens. We are One in our hearts and minds. United by our souls, and all on the Path to Elfin together.

While volume one titled Elf Quotes contained all the elf sayings from the first 37 of the Silver Elves’ books (all of the side-quotes in their books that were published throughout the years to that date), volume two contains quotes from their four latest books published since the time of the first volume, the daily quotes they publish on Facebook, along with the largest majority of the quotes in this book being shared and published for the first time. THE ELVES SAY is both an inspiring and enchanting book, and enjoying the many koans, riddles, sayings of the elven eldars, and quotes of ancient knowledge of the elves will surely assist you on your journey to enter the magical realms of Elfin.

Here are a few quotes from THE ELVES SAY:

“Elfin is surrounded by a sea of love, encompassed by a sky of near infinite possibility, exists in a forest of mystery and is ground on a tradition that is older than history and nearly as old as time.”

“The Elven Golden Rule: Do unto others more intelligently than they have done unto you.”

“If you do not find Faerie here, you are unlikely to find it there. But when you start to create it here, it follows you everywhere.”

“We elves are the magic that our ancestors did ages ago.”

“The Sun never sets in Elfin, the Sun never rises; it dances across the sky on its way to the Night’s Revels.”

“The Elves say: Even the Darkness hungers for the light. It may consume it, hide it, dim it, but in the end, it is ultimately transformed by it.”

What do the Elves Think about the Modern World of Humans Straying from Being United with Nature?

June 5, 2019
35114548_1918321901617341_7491730219124916224_n
“. . . whatever the past may have been like, whether we were noble savages or citizens of high civilizations, it would behoove us now to strive for unity and that surely begins with a basic courtesy toward each other, a tolerance for our differences, and a renewed effort to manifest Elfin upon the Earth in the most harmonious, beautiful, loving and creative ways possible.”

     For some time, there has been the idea of the noble savage, which is defined as a literary character who represents the notion of the outsider, wild man/elf, who exists naturally in Nature and is seen as an other or otherkin who has not been affected by the corrupting influences of modern civilization. This being is sometimes used to represent the idea that humanity is innately good in their purity of being. This idea of the noble savage is often attributed to the French writer Jean-Jacques Rousseau, although we are told that he never actually used that term in his writing.

     This idea of the noble savage is sometimes applied to the elves and not without some truth in it. We are certainly other, the perpetual outsiders and surely, we tend to agree that there is something essentially good in the evolving elven character, a purity that can be found often in children. Although, the purity of children is frequently a thoughtless purity that may do mean, cruel or dangerous and harmful things without actually intending evil of any sort. It is destruction for the pure delight of it.

     The notion that we were once pure and advanced beings who lived in harmony with the Earth and Nature is a wonderful idea, but most likely veers a bit astray from the truth. The reality is that we elfae, like other peoples around the world, were mostly a tribal and clannish people. And while it is nice to think of us as united, this is surely far from the truth. We were, in many ways, like the Celts who were not one tribe but a series of tribes who shared a somewhat common culture. And like most ancient tribes, such as the Vikings, the Teutons and other Germanic tribes, the Britons, the First Nations peoples of the American continents and the tribes of Africa, we elves often struggled and fought among ours’elves.

     Even Tolkien in the Silmarillion showed the elves in conflict with each other at times. The Irish tales speak of the Sidhe and other faerie tribes combating each other and as much as we Silver Elves would like to see elves come together in mutual appreciation and harmony, we would be totally divorced from reality (rather than a trial separation) if we didn’t acknowledge that even on the internet there are those who claim to be elven and fae who spend quite a bit of their time trying to argue and tear down others of different elfae tribes. We are still a tribal and clannish people, often individual elves and fae scattered here and there about the world.

     And if what the Greeks wrote about the Scythians, from which most of the elfae of the British Isles were said to have descended from, they didn’t account thems’elves as being worthy of consideration as warriors at their annual gathering of their tribes if they hadn’t killed at least one person during the previous year. We surely were often savages, like other tribes, but mostly noble in our own opinion of ours’elves, like most other tribes and peoples as well.

     True nobility isn’t given or granted to us. It is not something that we inherit, although some would disagree, of course. It is something that exists within us in potential as beings, which we must make actual in our own lives and beings. The same is true of having a harmonious relationship with each other and with Nature.

     It is true that some elfae think, along with Tolkien’s tales in that vein, that we once had grand civilizations as did the Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Sumerians, and the Ancient Chinese, although they were also tribal folk brought together most often by force. And in as much as it is said that we descended, as some say, from the Anunnakians, this may be the truth. Although, the tales of Atlantis, Lemuria and other Lost Civilizations are also said to speak of our peoples.

     But esoterically, it is also possible and, we think even more likely, that these Elven Civilizations didn’t exist upon the present Earth but upon earlier manifestations of the Earth upon higher planes and dimensions as we worked our way downward into this material realm in order to infuse it with spirit and magic and gain mastery here. The civilizations we remember may not have been on this world at all but on other planes of existence.

     Due to the fact that other tribes and peoples overwhelmed our own tribes in the course of history, and did a great deal to wipe out our culture and substituted it with their own (as the Christians and Islamic peoples substituted their culture over Pagans ones), it is difficult to know the truth entirely. Instead, we find we are left to sense and intuit the truth, and what may be true for one, may be different for other elfae of other tribes. We are not all the same, we are indeed all different and unique, and in that is our similarity.

     What is clear, however, whatever the past may have been like, whether we were noble savages or citizens of high civilizations, it would behoove us now to strive for unity and that surely begins with a basic courtesy toward each other, a tolerance for our differences, and a renewed effort to manifest Elfin upon the Earth in the most harmonious, beautiful, loving and creative ways possible. If we are to create an elven civilization, it would benefit us greatly if we practiced basic civility. For civility is a great elven power of enchantment that should never be underestimated.

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 with polishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

Can Anyone Be An Elf and Why Don’t All Elves Choose Elven Bodies In Which To Reincarnate?

May 21, 2019
ZHarpist
“. . . anyone who truly wishes to be an elf is, de facto, elfin in their heart and mind and if they pursue the Elven Way, they will surely become more and more elven in their inner being and that will, in time, affect their bodies, which will in the course of time, affect their DNA. . . . those who are descended from the elfae can be nearly anywhere on the Earth, born to all sorts of people and arising in a variety of cultures, merging as the Celts did with the people who came after them.”

Part One: Can Anyone Be An Elf?

Well, really, anyone who truly wishes to be an elf is, de facto, elfin in their heart and mind and if they pursue the Elven Way, they will surely become more and more elven in their inner being and that will, in time, affect their bodies, which will in the course of time, affect their DNA.

It is true that DNA doesn’t change quickly usually, which is not to say that it doesn’t produce mutations from time to time, but that is something different. When we are talking about mutations, we are really talking about DNA experimenting with the material realm. When we are talking about changing our bodies and therefore, in time, affecting our DNA, we are talking about our own actions, habits, and behaviors altering, or really communicating with and educating our DNA, which is the means used to transfer messages via the body from lifetime to lifetime. But we don’t travel from life to life via our bodies. We just inhabit them. We progress from life to life by way of our soulful spirits.

In many ways, our bodies are like a suit of clothes, elven raiment we might say, that we put on after a long time in the closet, or perhaps, that we just bought at the store and discover a piece of paper with messages on it in the pocket or a label stating the designer. We are the spirits who wear the bodies. Without us, without spirit to inhabit it, the body is like a person in a coma, or individual who has become a zombie. It doesn’t matter how you get the body you have, if you are void of spirit.

It is true that there are those elves who claim lineage from this or that elf tribe of old, which is wonderful as far as we are concerned, however, knowing that your ancestors were elven is not the same as living the life elfin, yours’elf. That’s rather like saying that your ancestors were Christian, therefore you are Christian even though you may not live in anyway like a true Christian should. Although, Christianity is basically a religious and spiritual philosophy, thus we might do better to look at Judaism as an analogy.

One can be Jewish or Hebrew by genetics, although being a matriarchal lineage, you are not considered to be Jewish if your mother wasn’t Jewish. If your father was Jewish but not your mother, then you are not considered to be Jewish. We elves find that curious, but then, the Universe can be a very curious place. Of course, one can be Jewish by birth, but not follow the Jewish religion, or one of its sub-sects, nor pay all that much attention to Jewish culture. Or one can be or do some combination thereof. These elves have known a lot of Jewish brothers and sisters who were born Jewish, but didn’t practice the religion at all. Usually, they are Buddhists, Pagans, or Atheists, although we’ve encountered a few who became Christian.

At the same time, many of these folk still very much cherished the Jewish Culture, although not all. There have even been folk who are not Jewish by birth or upbringing and who follow the Jewish faith, even though Jewish people, like Elves, don’t proselytize. So, who is really Jewish? Are you Jewish if you are only Jewish by birth but don’t value the faith or culture? Or must you also cherish and live the Jewish Culture and follow the Jewish Religion? Are those who were born and raised other than Jewish but have converted to the Jewish Religion and Culture really Jewish?

From an Elven point of view, which is to say, if they were elves, they would all be considered elven, or Jewish in our analogy, at least by these elves. Those with elven ancestors would be elven, even if only their mother or father, or a grandparent was an elf. Those who love the Elven Culture are elven as well. And surely those who follow the Elven Way are Elven no matter who the ancestors of their present body may have been. It is the spirit that really matters to we who are Silver Elves.

Of course, through our Elven Tribe questionnaire (see What Kind of Elfae/ Fae or Otherkin Are You on our Silver Elves website to take the questionnaire yourself), we have discovered there are all manner of elven tribes and clans and if a particular tribe wishes to exclude others based purely on genetics, well, what can we say but that it is clearly their right to do so, although we think they will be missing out on interacting with some great elven kindred spirits.

Alas, often those who make claim to physical elven heritage and genetics unfortunately use this as a way of excluding others not only from their clan but from their idea of what constitutes being elven at all. Again, it is their right to think as they wish, but we think it is a right that is being narrowly exercised. And usually those who do this do so to make thems’elves feel special while subtly denying others the right to do the same. It’s a one-upmanship game. There is just something a bit narrow minded and mean-spirited about that. And it seems to us it is just a step or two removed from those who say you have to have pointed ears to be an elf, or be tall, or incredibly thin, so that if a person is a bit short or overweight, they are arbitrarily excluded and considered un-elven. While we do believe that we, as elves upon the path, should do all we reasonably can to take care of our bodies and to be as healthy and fit as we can be, we know that many people struggle with their weight and that struggle, in its’elf is a rather courageous step upon the Elven Path. We don’t deny them the right to consider thems’elves elven just because they’re over weight. And the point of view that would exclude them from being elven, just because of the current body form or ancestry, just seems un-elven to us.

Well, as we said early in this blog article, anyone who wishes to be an elf, can be an elf, but very few wish to be elves who are not already elven in their hearts, minds and souls. We do get those who are traveling through, so to speak, from time to time, because being an elf sometimes seems cool (substitute rad or whatever slang word you happen to use) and exciting and elves are magical and wondrous, so who wouldn’t wish to be an elf, really? But, surprisingly, very few who aren’t at least a bit elven wish to be elves. There are all sorts of other superhero, otherworldly, supernatural beings with powers that one can aspire toward being. And the list just keeps growing.

But we don’t mind the fact that not everyone is going to continue to claim an elven identity. We treat visitors in our realms as our very own. ‘Mi casa es su casa,’ as the Spanish speaking elfin say. Or as we who use Arvyndase say: ‘Te ata arae eli,’ ‘Be one among us.’ If you are an elf friend, even for a short while, you are kin to us in spirit and we will embrace you as our very own.

Of course, some elves are more materialistically oriented than others of us. Developing a spiritual understanding of the Universe and reality can take time. Surely, one can be descended from those folks who were known as being elven or fae in the past, or upon whom the legends, lore and tales of the elfae are based. But really, fairy tales are a nearly worldwide phenomena and if we are to believe the tales, or at least give them some credence, then we elfin were some of the first peoples, the aboriginal folk of the Earth, everywhere. Thus, those who are descended from the elfae can be nearly anywhere on the Earth, born to all sorts of people and arising in a variety of cultures, merging as the Celts did with the people who came after them.

Yet, despite this, very few individuals actually wish or claim to be elven. There is a good deal of social ridicule for doing so, which surely filters out a lot of those for whom being elven would just be a passing fad, and there is not much left in the way of living culture to be born and raised within anymore. Few elves were raised by aware elven parents, although our children were. Those missing aspects of our culture is what we are creating here and now.

And the simple fact is that not all elves and elfae, or perhaps even most of us, are as enamored of Elven and Faerie culture as we Silver Elves are. The vast majority of those who are really elves are too busy trying to save the whales, clean up the oceans, save the forests, protect endangered species and all around being busy protecting the environment to really bother or care about calling thems’elves elves or fae folk. Some few of us, however, have also undertaken the task of preserving and creating, re-creating our cultural heritage. We are endeavoring to shift through all the gibberish about us to reveal the true gems of elven life, culture and wisdom. Are those folks not elves or fae, just because they don’t bother to claim to be so? Not every elf has felt the calling of this duty to preserve and promote Elven culture. Most have more important things to do.

Let’s take the example, for instance, of those individuals who claim to be Christian because they were raised by parents who also claimed to be Christian and go to church in order to be socially accepted in a Christian society.  Who also claim to believe whatever Christians are supposed to believe but who act in ways that are most definitely un-Christian, at least to the understanding of we Silver Elves, but then, we are not Christian. Hypocrisy may be a Christian tenet as far as we know, but we rather doubt it. Are such disingenuous individuals really Christian?

Contrast them with individuals who live in the way that Jesus wished, are Christian by their acts and deeds but don’t claim to be Christian or perhaps make claim to any faith at all? Are they truly Christian by deed, if not by acclamation? By the same token, is it more important to claim you are an elf or fae but not tread the path of the Elven Way or is it more vital to live by the principles of the Elven Way and seek in all you do to help, heal and spread the wonder of magic all about you? Who then would be truly elven?

Well, this is an old debate among Christians as well as among the Elves. Perhaps we will never reach agreement but we shall strive onward as the Elfin folk that we are, encouraging each and everyone to “walk their talk” and “put their money where their mouth is” as men and goblins like to say. Or as we elves like to say, “Be the elf you know yours’elf to be, as fully as you can, striving ever to make this a more magical world for everyone.” And if you do that, you are surely an elf, whatever you may call yours’elf and whomever the ancestors of the body happened to be.

Part Two: Why Don’t All Elves Choose Elven Bodies In Which To Reincarnate?

There seems to be a divide in the elfae community between those who look at being elven as a material state of being saying that only those who are descended by blood (which is to say by genetics) from elven folk can truly be elven and those of us who view the material world, rather as the Buddhists do, as a secondary world that is based upon the world of spirit and energy and that being elven has more to do with one’s spirit, consciousness and magic, or one’s will empowered by action, than with the body one has chosen to inhabit in a particular lifetime.

Perhaps this difference can be seen by way of example. A number of years ago in the United States, a woman rose to prominence in the Black community only to be discovered years later to have White parents. She was not genetically Black at all. This, of course, caused a bit of a scandal. For years, she had made herself appear Black and had fought and struggled to promote awareness and equality and fairness for Black people, but because she was not Black genetically, even though she had been assumed for decades as being, she was no longer considered Black.

However, from the point of view of we Silver Elves, while she was not Black in a genetic sense, she was Black in her soul and in her spirit and more than likely had been Black in lifetimes previous. Why else would she wish to be accepted as Black? Of course, those who see the world from a strictly material point of view, which is nearly everyone currently in the world, took the point of view that she was faking it and not really Black at all. That is surely the standpoint of most Men, but why would we Elves fall in line with the kneejerk reactions and enculturated thoughtforms of Men? After all, if we are to believe the legends and lore about us, even the ones created by Men, our race is older, wiser and more magical and mystical, which is to say in this case, more etheric than Mankind and, even to their own minds, will ever be so.

For Elfin and Faerie are, as are the elfae folk ours’elves, essentially supernatural beings. Supernatural being a word that indicates Nature in its most advanced state of being, infused with the world of spirit and magic and the beings and creatures thereof. We elves are spirits manifested in the material world. Well, some of us are on higher planes of manifestation, surely, and certainly some are currently traveling through the Between. But those of us writing here have manifested in humanoid bodies that perhaps are just a bit more aware and etheric than many of the normal folks around us. Thus, we must remember to keep ours’elves grounded, which is especially important for the faeries who simply tend to fly off at times, but for the elven, this is something most of us have mastered fairly well.

This understanding of the supernatural aspects of the world is very close to the way most of our ancestors experienced the world as being filled with spirits and energies and magic everywhere. Even Men once saw the world that way, which is part of the reason they came to have tales about us. They saw us, at least in part, as we were. It scared them and they persecuted us, but then, they also persecuted everyone, including each other, so we elfae shouldn’t take it all that personally. For Men, as they themselves say, most wicked things that they do are not personal, it’s just business. Men hunger to succeed and dominate everything and everyone in order to make a profit, but to them money equates to self-worth. They killed off a lot of us and did a fairly good job of destroying our culture (although our culture persisted none-the less), all to make themselves feel important.

One might wonder if we can choose the body we are reincarnated within, why we elves don’t just always select those bodies that are descended from those who survived with what some folks refer to as the Elven Holocaust (see Nicolas De Vere The Dragon Legacy). And the reasons are several, really. One, there just weren’t as many genetically elven bodies available as there were elven spirits reincarnating. We could wait, of course, to be reincarnated, but then, we had things to do, desires of our own that drew us into the material world and we selected the best bodies and situations available at any particular time.

Two, some of us, particularly those of us with a bit of pixie blood in us, thought it might be humorous, as well as efficacious, if we were born to the descendants of the Men who persecuted us and then gave them hell when we became teenagers. And then, as we matured, we began preserving our elven heritage as best we might through fairy tales and lore, as well as, subtly affecting the way they viewed the world. At the very least, offering them some alternative ideas. We have not been without some success in this regard, however, they do and have always looked upon us as being the “black sheep of the family” and generally rather eccentric.

We elves have always been the oddballs, the weirdos and crazies of our families. For we are elves. We are supernatural beings. To see and constrict the world to a strictly materialistic point of view is to limit one’s understanding and ability to do and be magic. If one understands our magical nature, the essential enchantment of our being, then one will also understand that we can adopt whatever bodies we desire from one life to the next as purpose and destiny incline us to do. Further, it should be clear that in this world, as we’ve said previously, almost no one would call thems’elves an elf if they didn’t have some elf in their Nature.

So, beloved, embrace and nurture all your kindred as best you are able, and help each and every one become who they are truly meant to be, which is their own true s’elf, and together we shall create Elfin upon the Earth and Elsewhere and dance beneath the Moon and Stars.

We Silver Elves don’t care who your ancestors were, although if you wish to tell us we would surely find it interesting. We don’t care what religion you were born and raised into, as long as you don’t attempt to push it on us, although we are quite interested in religion as a study overall. We don’t care from what race you’ve descended, what country you came from, or what your social status is, although all of that can make for interesting conversation. We only care that you are doing your best to evolve as a spirit and as an individual and that we can strive together onward enlightening the path to Elfin for ours’elves and our kindred, now and to come as we move into the future creating Elfin upon the Earth.

And a Word from Diviners Corner . . .

. . .The Silver Elves have several original Elven divination systems that have been created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners, including The Elven Star Oracle, Elven Geomancy, and our most recent oracle system Sticks and Stones, Feathers, Charms, and Bones:
 

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

by The Silver Elves is an original oracle system that uses the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of sticksandstonescoverthe Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame. You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on. To read an excerpt and more about this book,  please click here!

. . . . And for using oracles to form rituals

GEOMANCY

     A number of our Silver Elves oracle books are filled with elven mantras for specific magical uses. If you truly like using elven mantras for magick, elven mantras accompany each of the oracles in our book Elven Geomancy: An Ancient Oracle of the Elfin Peoples for Divination and Spell Casting and are written in our magical language Arvyndase with the English meaning also given. These mantras can be strung together to form a spell to increase the magic associated with the answer you receive in this oracle. And these mantras may be used along with the mudras also given in this book for each outcome to form a sort of impromptu ritual that you can perform in order to increase the potency of what you wish to achieve. To read an excerpt and more about this book,  please click here!

“We elves don’t believe in magic because we are superstitious
but because we instinctually have faith
in the near infinite nature of the Universe
and its potentialities.”

And for further reading on the Elven way and following the Elven Path, we suggest:

If you have questions about the Elven Way and being an elf, then you may alsomagicalRealms2 wish to read The Magical Realms of Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path.

MANIFESTING ELFIN:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf
and Following the Elven Path, Volume 2
by The Silver Elves

 

Manifesting Elfin is found here to purchase on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK.

We Silver Elves are happy to announce today our latest book publication! In MANIFESTING ELFIN, we continue with a volume 2 of our question and answer series addressing the numerous questions about who the elves are and about the elven way that have been posed to us throughout the 40+ years of following the elven spiritual path and sharing with the world that we are elves in spirit incarnated in human bodies (also see volume 1 The Magical Realms of Elfin). In Manifesting Elfin, we explore further questions about elven tribes and relations; elven magic and healing; modern elven life; elven awakening and entering Elfin; the Shining Ones, past lives, and elven spiritual development; elves and gender; and some interesting elven perspectives.

Some of the specific questions answered in Manifesting Elfin are: Are Elfae human? Did all elves come from the stars? What do elves see as the difference between spirit and soul? What will elves be like in the future? What is Paltareon, the far memory of the Elves? What effect do our magical body parts (wings, elf ears, tails, scales etc.) in etheric form have upon otherkin?  Can we become elves? What is the difference between the Elven Way and the Fairy Faith? Who are the Shining Ones and how do we communicate with them? Are all otherkin fae?  How often do elves do magic? Do elves heal with crystals? What are the secrets of the elves? What do the Silver Elves think of Tolkien’s idea concerning the creation of the universe? What’s the difference between Seelie and Unseelie Fae? What’s the difference between Unseelie Elves and Dark Elves? Can an elf have a soul mate who is human? How do we elves deal with the discrepancy between the reality of our manifestation and the legends and lore about us? Do elves think that Magick has gone away? How do you gently awaken a sleeping elf kin? Are elves compatible to Druids? How do elves deal with our homesickness for Elfin? Do Elves meditate and, if they do, how? How do elves raise children? Are elves and faeries part of the deva kingdom? Who were the Elf Queen’s Daughters? And, Are elves a fiction-based religion or a spiritual path? See the Table of Contents of Manifesting Elfin listed below this introduction for a complete list of questions addressed in this book.

Most often, a person has questions as one tries: to decide if one is ones’elf an elf or is some otherkin; to understand what it means to be an elf and how one might know of one’s elfin nature; to understand one’s experience of having an Elven Awakening; to determine how elven magic is alike or different from that performed by other spiritual groups; to understand the keys to elven magic and enchantment; to explore more about being an elf in a human body and how this is possible; and to learn about how elves live and relate to mankind and otherkin. So if you are curious about modern elves, particularly about The Silver Elves and their philosophy and magick, then you will surely find many of your questions answered in both the first volume, The Magical Realms of Elfin, and also many more in this volume two, Manifesting Elfin.
