Beyond Awakening — Further Steps on the Elven Path, Attunement and Annunciation

December 22, 2020

zardoa_christmas2014
Merry Yule from the Silver Elves!

     We Silver Elves identify seven steps or stages on The Elven Way, and even though we could perceive them like steps, they may be both progressive and also simultaneous. As we have discussed previously, the first stage of The Elven Way is the Awakening (see our discussion of the first three stages in our article on this blog dated October 2, 2020: https://silverelves.wordpress.com/2020/10/09/are-there-any-steps-beyond-awakening-on-the-elven-path). The second is Association for it involves seeking of one’s kindred upon the Path, which the Buddhists would call Right Company. This is the companionship of other seekers who reinforce one’s quest by sharing the endeavor to discover and develop each one’s true nature and greater awareness. We could call it the Fellowship of the Elves, but Fellowship seems to have the connotation of maleness and we elves are ever a gender equal society and thus we would be more likely to call it the Frasority of the Elfae. Frasority combines the words for fraternity and sorority and Elfae combines elves, fae and faerie folk and, in our minds, otherkin of all sorts.

     The third stage of the Elven Way is called Activation and involves the empower of ours’elves and our magic as elfae beings. It is the quest to know one’s true s’elf in all its fullness and power and is an ongoing process. One doesn’t move from the third stage to the fourth so much as one includes the fourth step into one’s repertoire, so to speak. As we pointed out in our discussions about the first three stages, all these events can be happening in any order really, or all at the same time, and they are all ongoing events. Although, the Awakening clearly sets them in motion toward otherworldly elfae realization in a dramatic and serious way and is rather like starting the engine of one’s vehicle. The vehicle exists in its entirety at that moment but until one starts it, it is unlikely to go anywhere.

So now let’s take a look at the next two stages of The Elven Way — Attunement and Annunciation.

The Fourth Stage of the Elven Way — Attunement

     Attunement is the fourth stage of the Elven Way, but for some people this was occurring before the Awakening as well as after. Certainly, if one has any intuitive and psychic abilities, which nearly all elfae folk do, then one had moments of Attunement long before that moment when one realized, with sudden clarity, that one didn’t merely see and interact with the otherworld of Faerie from time to time, but was actively a part of it and had always been so. Awakening casts off the spells of sleep and slumber in which the normal world entangled us up, as it wishes us to believe we are just another normal person and of no great significance, instead of the amazing elfae beings we truly are.

     After Awakening, we begin to see the otherworldly around us. This is partially true because we begin living our lives as elfae folk and this, by its nature, is a magic that attracts Elfin and Faerie energies to us. And as we take a concerted step toward Association, this becomes even stronger. For elfae together create a greater and more powerful aura, no matter how powerful one might be as an individual magic wielder. You might be the richest person in the world (or the most powerful magician), but if you join your resources with someone else who only has a little bit of wealth, you are still richer. Elfin takes notice of elves working in concert, whether two or more. We know this to be true from personal experience. And the result of this is stronger and more potent encounters with the otherworldly side of things.

     And because one is seeking to Activate one’s personal magic (stage three) this naturally enhances the effect of Attunement. Living one’s life as an elf, fae, faerie or other naturally increases the faerie magic that surrounds one’s aura. Otherworldly beings from both sides of the veil are draw to one. Even if they are miles away or continents apart from you, they will begin to gravitate in your direction and you in theirs, like magnets attracted to each other.

     This requires balance. Before one Awakens, most otherworldly encounters, while amazing, are usually quickly forgotten, especially since they tend to violate what one has been enculturated to believe is possible in the first place. One sometimes doubts one’s own senses and seeks mundane explanations for something that was truly phenomenal in one’s experience.

     After one Awakens, however, these events and encounters with what some call the Paranormal, are increased, especially those that involve signs and portents from the Faerie realms. And one begins to become Attuned to them, so one doesn’t dismiss them automatically, nor forget them quite so easily. Although, one might still be inclined to forget some of them merely because they are not so uncommon as they once were, and those of a lesser nature often fade from our memories while those of greater import, ones that have some major effect upon our lives, take their place.

     As this happens, we begin to Stand Between the Worlds, as the Witches say, for it is important that we keep both worlds in our mind’s eye. We need to be able to see Faerie and the elfae folk, without losing sight of what the normal folk believe to be real. We experience the world as radiant but we are not unaware that to others it is just as dull and mundane as it ever was, except perhaps, when they were very little children. We become Attuned to the world of Faerie, but we also are aware that others see the world differently, as less wondrous and less of an ongoing adventure, and we interact with each being of each world from their own point of view.

     This is rather like visiting a foreign country with friends and while you speak your language with your friends, you are also speaking the language of the country you are visiting with its inhabitants. So, we speak the language of magic and mysticism with those who understand and we speak quite plainly and often scientifically for those who prefer more mundane explanations. And yet, in doing this, our Attunement to the Otherworldly increases and we do not give up one world for another, as tempting as that may be at times, but increase the dimensions we can see and with which we can interact. It is like someone who is colorblind who suddenly overcomes that limitation. Or suddenly being about to see Ultraviolet or Infrared without any mechanical aid. As this happens, the worlds open up to us as well as the possibilities for our lives.

The Fifth Stage of The Elven Way – Annunciation    

     Once one has awakened to the realization of their true nature manifesting in the world of form as elves, fae, faeries, pixies, brownies or some other, or some combination of other, one sees the world in a new light. One continues to seek friends, lovers and family, only now one especially reaches out toward one’s elfae family, those who share the Path with ones’elf.

     And each of us still endeavors to make ours’elves stronger, more magical, more resilient and better in every possible way on every level of our being from our physical form through to our feelings, relationship interactions, minds, souls, spirits and all else, the whole of our being. This is vital to the Elven Way and something that most of us were doing before we awakened, only these efforts are now informed by the understanding of our otherkin nature. This understanding and realization expands and increases our awareness of ours’elves and the levels and dimensions that we can develop within and upon.

     This process puts us into contact with the energy and energetic beings of Faerie and Elfin and the Otherworldly in general. Psychic occurrences and the appearance of signs, omens and visions become more common, although still often amazing in their presentation. And we endeavor to become Attuned to this new, more magical, mystical and phenomenal realm in which we dwell, and which we now realize we’ve always lived within, without losing sight of the manifestation of the dominant world and its paradigms around us. As much as many of us would like to disconnect from that world, the world of Men and the normal folk, doing so at this point can have serious consequences that are not usually to our liking.

     And even more difficult, in its way, is being able to distinguish between what is really true concerning Faerie and Elfin and the other worlds and dimensions and what is merely the mental constructs of the normal world that have been painted over with glitter and a veneer of magic in order to look like they are of Faerie when, in fact, they are truly not.

     We simply can’t carry the prejudices, dogmas and doctrines of the world into the Faerie Realms. It is not that it is not allowed in the sense of it being against the rules, but it is simply not possible. Our baggage from the normal world just won’t pass through the portal and thresholds into Faerie. And if we cling to them desperately, as some elfae seem determined to do, we as individuals can’t enter Faerie either unless we let go of them. But then, there is no hurry really, except our own sense of urgency and feeling of wishing to escape from this mad world of Men, and when we do enter those realms we will realize that we arrived at the precise moment that was right for us to come and always destined to be.

     When we have traveled this far upon the Way, we then usually come to the stage of Annunciation. Not all folks enter this stage, although many do. Some may skip it altogether. It is not a necessary stage in an individual sense, although it is important to the elfae peoples overall, and not all who set out to fulfill this stage are, at first, adept at doing so, but then adeptship comes with time, effort and practice. The more we do it and the more we seek to improve what we do, the better we get.

     Annunciation has to do with Speaking One’s Truth, particularly when it concerns one’s otherworldly life and experiences. It is one of the ways that we connect with others of our kind and thus is an aspect or technique of Association. And it is one of the ways that we aid those who are as yet unaware of their true nature or afraid to even embrace the fact or notion that they are elfae of some sort. It helps our others to Awaken to their essential being and begin treading the Path, thems’elves.

     Some us, like we Silver Elves, Annunciate in magical elven tomes such as these writings here. But most elfae, beyond personal communication and posts and interactions on social media, seek to write Elven and Faerie and otherworldly stories of a fictional sort. Usually, they are inspired by Tolkien and his great works concerning us, but also by other writers as well and sometimes by video games or games such as Magic the Gathering or D&D type games.

     Our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters use to say that if we elves had saints, in the manner of the Catholic church, Tolkien would surely be our primary one. While he was Catholic by faith, he was otherkin by manifestation as far as we elfin are concerned and will ever hold a place in our hearts and minds and the history of our peoples.

     Annunciation helps our kin to find each other. To Awaken to their true natures through the evocation of their minds and imaginations. For the imagination takes the mind and fills it with soulful feeling, just as music does, and lifts us up out of the everyday world to which the normal folk would like to bind us with their mundane magics, and sets us free to soar across the realms touching our kindred and uniting with them wherever we may. Speak Your Truth, kindred, if you dare, Speak Your Fae Truth.

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.”

2_3_7tinystar

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.

2_3_7tinystar

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.

(We will be discussing the last 4 steps in the Elven Way in a future blog article and more about these seven steps in our upcoming Silver Elves book Visions of Elfin, to be published in early 2021.)

6throughmistsweb

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.

elvenwayweb

3. The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie
This is not the Norse Runes but our own original elven rune divination system. It consists of 40 runes. The book is 130 pages with photos and illustrations that feature each rune and explain the rune system, how to make your own set of runes (runestones not included), and the interpretation for each of the runes.

4. The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves (see both Volume 1 & 2)

5. The Magical Realms of Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path.

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

And Now A Gift For You!!!!!!
What Sort of Elf, Faerie or Other Are You?
What is Your Magical Tribe?

For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. Now we’ve created a questionnaire to help us do so and to help you learn about your people, your magical tribe. This is our gift to you (free). Simply follow this link below and the directions and we will help you with your own personal narrative about your magical tribe.

And for further reading . . . .

And if you would like to explore an elven perspective of esoteric lore, we suggest that you read our books on the Supra-dimensional and Elven Magic, the four Books of Correspondence Between the Silver Elves and the Founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughter (there is no particular order in which you need to read). Each of these four books are a collection of letters with dominate themes of sorcery, the Manu, the Shinning One who is the inspiration for the evolution of humanity in this age, Esoteric Buddhism, Elven magic and culture, Tolkien, the supra-dimensional and necromancy.

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.

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.

After publishing the first two books in this series, we Silver Elves continued to have many of our kindred fill out the kin type survey and contact us asking for a tribe narrative, so this third book in the series contains all of these new tribe narratives to this date and is dedicated to a variety of tribes of elven kind, faeries, fae that are faerie blends, otherkin, otherworldlies, and miscellaneous assorted fae. The 124 tribe narratives in this third volume are all newly published and are not found in the two previous books. Some of the narratives are a bit longer than those in the first two books. These tribe narratives will beautifully describe to you about their history, their unique powers, their unique magics and spiritual beliefs and practices, their way of governing, their spell crafting and herbal adeptship, along with their lifestyle and special creative interests and abilities.

Be sure and click on the title links above and read a few of these magical tribe narratives. Perhaps, you will find your people as you read through these two books, or kindred quite like them. At any rate, you can always do the survey yours’elf, or do it again if you feel you have come to a greater understanding of yours’elf and our peoples in the meantime (or gentle-time as we elves often say).

The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones

Elven saying on the cover of The Elven Way:

the-silver-elves-quotes-2

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

Short definition ofThe Elven Way” by The Silver Elves

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

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

 

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

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:

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

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

Do Elves Really Awaken to Being Elfin?

January 4, 2020
Z_SF_SilverElves
“. . . . really, we don’t awaken to being elves or others, but we simply put a name or type upon what we always knew ours’elves to be but didn’t always know what to call it. We have ever known ours’elves to be otherworldly beings of some sort, but awakening really marks that astounding moment when we come to know what that sort actually is and embrace it fully.”

     Back in the mid-1970’s, we awakened to our true elven nature when we encountered and joined with our beloved kindred of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (EQD). At this point, we Silver Elves began speaking of Awakening. At that time, however, we called ours’elves the Elves of the Southern Woodlands (as a vortex/coven of the EQD). Later, in the early 1980’s, when we first started writing and sending out by snail mail and years later by email, our Magical Elven Love Letters, which were a continuation of the Elf Magic Mail published by the EQD, we would write of our awakening and others would write to us about theirs.

     This still occurs to this day. This term of awakening that we Silver Elves began using back in these early times of our elven group has moved into wider usage among elfae folk. This developed in the same way that the seven-pointed acute angled Elven star that some refer to as the Faerie star that our sisters of the EQD first associated with elf folk, has also been adopted and is used by elves and fae folk worldwide.

     However, recently, one of our kindred here had the thought that the term “Awakening,” may actually be a bit of a misnomer. In a way, it is like saying the sun rises or sets, when we know scientifically that’s not what is actually occurring. So, speaking of awakening in many ways is like saying the sun rose on my elven life and set upon my worldly life, or something like that.

     Our beloved kindred here, pointed out to us that, in fact, we elfae folk really always knew that we were different. We sense it from our earliest days in the world and it is expressed in our reaction to the rules, morés and efforts of the world and to social enculturation and their attempts at inculcation of their values about how to be normal in the world and the fact that almost all of what normal folk tell us doesn’t make a bit of sense to us. It is as though they are speaking some unknown language that sounds like the language we are brought up with, uses the same words but utterly fails the test of logic and reason so that the words just seem to be thrown together randomly. “Gibberish so to us is much their words.”

     We sense (feel) our connection to being Elfae or Otherkin very early in our lives (often long before we awaken to our particular kin type) from our love of Nature and being in it as much as possible, from our interest in Magic, from our fervor in building fairy houses and leaving gifts for those unseen by most, from collecting what me can that relates to the world of Faerie and Nature, from doing oracles, and/or from the love of reading tales of elves, fairies, dragons and other worldly beings.

     We don’t Awaken to being elves or elfae or others really, although we still like that term and use it. It is not like we are asleep to our inner Elven Nature in our feelings and suddenly awake to it. Rather, it is more that our thinking brain gets on board to unite with our instinctual feelings and Inner Nature and we “name” our kin type for the first time. What we do is find a kin type that fits our true nature, such as being elven, pixie, brownie, gnome, faerie or werewolf or whatever, and we suddenly realize that the description of those particular beings is what resonates with our soul and spirit rather than all those other ideas concerning our being that normal folk have projected upon us our entire lives and expect us to conform to. And, we really owe them a debt of gratitude. Their attempts to get us to conform to their ridiculous notions of what we should be like and the fact that they so often called us by various rude and offensive terms seeking to tear us down for being different, simply confirmed for us that we were not really one of them. All their judgments and efforts to deride us ensured our own sense of otherworldliness and our own preternatural being. Everything they did contributed to our own quest to understand our inner fae or otherworldly being. Whether they sought to bind us by their clumsy spells of name calling, or shoved us away from them with derision, telling us that we just were just not right, adequate or sane, all served to confirm to us that we didn’t really belong along them and we were right to seek our lives and our natures elsewhere.

     In calling us weirdos and freaks and other such names, they helped open the way to our own understanding of what we truly were. And when we encountered those kintypes in fantasy and fiction that truly hummed with our inner s’elves, it made it all that much easier to embrace these archetypes of being. The fact that they believe that most of these beings: elves, faeries and others, don’t actually exist just made it even simpler to understand that those beings were exactly what we were. For we had found in our experience that when it came to nearly anything and everything of importance, the normal folk were nearly always wrong and mistaken, especially about us.

   So, it is that, really, we don’t awaken to being elves or others, but we simply put a name or type upon what we always knew ours’elves to be but didn’t always know what to call it. At this point, we often feel a rush of energy and s’Elf acceptance as we have united our body and mind (our feelings and thinking). We have ever known ours’elves to be otherworldly beings of some sort, but awakening really marks that astounding moment when we come to know what that sort actually is and embrace it fully.

The bird of memory long thought gone,
The song of awakening it doth sing,
As the flocks of Elfin do take wing.”

And if you are further interested in The Elf Queen’s Daughters, please see our two volumes that contain all their original letters (from the mid 70s) sent out to their vortexes as Elf Magic Mail. These are fascinating letters and truly enchanting.

Click here to view a sample letter, The Primordial Egg, in book 1 and about the book: Elf Magic Mail: Book 1,The Original Letters of The Elf Queen’s Daughters With Commentary by The Silver Elves and  The Winged Star, in book 2: Elf Magic Mail: Book 2,The Original Letters of The Elf Queen’s Daughters With Commentary by The Silver Elves.

 

“Our names have been called,
our song has been sung.
We are ready to dance with the Goddess,
and if you but read and see clearly,
but for a moment..
we are glad, so very, very glad
to have you with us.”
. . . .The Elf Queen’s Daughters

 

“It is not the good old days of yesteryear that we elves hunger for,
so much as making this moment the best we can
so they will be the good old days to come.”
. . . . The Silver Elves

 

‘Rings of Fire’ (Circle) is an original Elf Magic Mail letter that was sent out to elfae kindred by the Elf Queen’s Daughters from Cleveland Heights, Ohio, in the mid 70s, and is one of many such magical letters contained in its entirety in the book Elf Magic Mail, Book 1, (along with commentaries by The Silver Elves): 
From Elf Magic Mail, Book 1):

CIRCLES
RINGS OF FIRE

“WITHIN THE CIRCLE LIVES THE POWER, SISTERS …

… of the whole of MOTHER EARTH’S VAST POTENTIAL. And, what we do in circle is the true mirror reflection of how close to HER we are or would become.

For all the inner sisters, each union/communion is as a circle … each gathering with other sisters is a form of a circle, no matter how informal. And these circles expand and grow, including all we contact … drawing in the mass of humanity within the ring of fire.

SO MANY YEARS WE HELD OUR CIRCLES CLOSED … LIMITED … BOUND BY FEAR AND PARANOIA. NOW! Sisters, now we grow, we expand … not by proselytizing … not by grasping … but by circles of ever greater magnitude…..

….GATHER THE ENERGY NOW, SISTERS, FOR THE INITIATION OF A NEW AGE … A NEW PEOPLE … make greater circles, not in their size, but in your growing awareness of new direction.

WE TURN TO FACE THE INNER RING … LET SOON THE MOTHER’S SONG BEGIN … HER WARRIORS AGAIN JOIN HANDS … TO ENTER INTO ALL THE LANDS …

RAISE, TOO, YOUR PALMS TO THE INNER CIRCLE! FOCUS YOUR WILL! GATHER YOUR COURAGE … BEGIN NOW TO CREATE NEW RINGS … RINGS OF FIRE”

Also you will get a true understanding of the depth of esoteric knowledge these two sisters shared by reading the four Books of Correspondence Between the Silver Elves and the Founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (there is no particular order in which you need to read). Each of these four books are a collection of letters with dominate themes of sorcery, the Manu, the Shinning One who is the inspiration for the evolution of humanity in this age, Esoteric Buddhisim, Elven magic and culture, Tolkien, the supra-dimensional and necromancy.

And for further reading. . . .
. . . . dear Kindred, if you enjoyed the article above, we think you may very much enjoy reading our most popularly read book on the wisdom teachings of the ancient Elven titled Through The Mists of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven by The Silver Elves:

The following is an example of writing from THROUGH THE MISTS OF FAERIE, page 105-106, from Part One:  Old Souls and Old Spirits. Click on the link above to find out more about this book, to read more excerpts and a complete table of contents.

Old Souls and Old Spirits

“In spiritual circles, people often speak of Old Souls. They are most often referring to very mature and wise beings who have clearly been on the evolutionary path of development for eons and eons. Of course, there are also ever those who refer to their own s’elves as being Old Souls and this, usually, is more of a proclamation of aspiration than one of reality. But the Old Souls, being the wise Souls that they are, and ever inclusive, do not deter these eagerly aspiring Spirits from their soulful calling. The Old Souls simply smile and nod and encourage them on their way.”

“Few, however, speak of Old Spirits, but the elven know that there are not only Old Souls, but Old Spirits as well. Old Spirits are very developed personalities. They are very unique, many would call them eccentric, beings who stand out from the mass of humanity. One knows there is something different about them, something special about them, but most are unsure exactly what that difference is.”

“Most Elfae are both Old Souls and Old Spirits, but we are still on the evolutionary path, and we are still following the Elven Way. While we are often more advanced in many ways than the mass of humanity, we also know that the difference between us is, when seen from the more subtle dimensions, quite small; otherwise we would most likely be elsewhere and not here. And we are also aware that even those who seem less advanced than we frequently have talents and abilities that we do not have. The Soulfully aware know there is always something that can be learned from each and everyone, no matter what hir level of development; and that the Spark of the Divine burns in every Soul just awaiting the breath of another Soul to fan it into a flame.”

“While we Elfae have been often, and for ages, ostracized by many of the social and ethnic groupings of humanity, who ever vie for dominance, we have come to realize that the means to mastering such beings is not by withdrawal, although sometimes we must do so for our safety, nor by attempting to dominate them in turn, but by embracing them from a higher state of realization. Thus we never accept their rejection of us, nor react to it. We ever follow our higher instincts, and pursue our own direction. We encourage their Soulfulness and their true Spirits; frequently we even admire them. But we have no obligation to be involved with these save as circumstance and fate demand. We accept them in their Divine Potential, but we do not necessarily involve ours’elves in their lives. Neither do we automatically reject them, our actions/our magic are ever based on our own sense of direction and intent. In this way, we become the Masters of our own Destiny.”

“How do we love them from a higher realm of being? By ever offering them courtesy and respect for their Spirits and their Souls. With courtesy the Elfae can attract such individuals, or send them on their way. With respect we encourage the development of their Souls and Spirits. Courtesy and respect are the basic policies, and the foremost magical powers, that all elves learn to use in interacting with others.”

Many Kindred have asked us what is “The Elven Way.” So we have written books on it (see book of that same title above) but here below is our short definition:

And every act we do
And when we feel it deep within
Our Elfin doth come true.”

Why Are Elves So Few and Far Between?

November 12, 2019

Blessings9 copy2

“The great obstruction to us being together isn’t the outside world but our own inability, as yet, to make it so. There is purpose in us being at a distance. That way we spread the magic far and wide. But there is a destiny in us being together, and while fate seems to dictate otherwise at times, fate is only temporary circumstance while Destiny eternally awaits us and calls us to it.”

It seems a curious phenomenon that elves awaken, often far away from each other. Although, in fact, quite a bit of awakening occurs due to personal interaction and contact with each other. And yet still, those who stir one to awaken are often elves who are just temporarily passing through that one met at a gathering or simply met due to some unusual synchronicity and then journey onward. Of course, these days, the internet stirs many folks and we find we are at the distance from the very start.

You can find elfae all over the world in various forms and manifestations, but currently we seem to arise more in places that have contact with the works of Tolkien in books or movies or other works that refer to Elfae magic and culture in some way or other.

You may even find those who relate to being Vulcans, or Romulans, or some other form of elfae folk, that don’t think of thems’elves as elves, but would still qualify as far as these elves are concerned. We admit we have a liberal interpretation of what constitutes being elfin. Unlike some who desire a certain exclusivity to our culture, we Silver Elves see elfae folk nearly everywhere. Even if, as in the case of the Romulans, some of these folks seem rather Unseelie in nature, we still understand their inherent fae nature.

But why are we awakening so far distant to each other? One possibility is simply that Faerie, although that term is used mostly in Western European culture, has its roots around the world. When the Chinese make movies about Snake People becoming human, or the Japanese tell tales of the Kitsune, the shape shifting fox people, they are really speaking of some of the various denizen and beings of Faerie. All Otherworldly beings and phenomenon is really an expression of Faerie, just with different cultural trappings. Some people might wish to argue about that, particularly those with the mundane wish to argue about everything. Elves understand.

We might point out, for those who are attached to Elves and Faerie folk being descended from a genetic and material bloodline that the Scythians, who are often seen as the ancients of the Elfae peoples, had tribes who migrated Westward to France, Spain, Alba (Great Britain) and Eire (Ireland), some of these passing, due to familial ties and relationships, through the Middle East and Egypt upon their way (see The Realm of the Ring Lords by Laurence Gardner). But the Scythians also had at least one tribe that moved Eastward and became the Ainu of Japan. We can also find beings described (the Danavas) that were similar to the Celtic elves, the Tuatha De Danann, in ancient Hindu scripts (see the Mahabharata, and The Bhagavata Purana). Similar to Ireland, Britain, Iceland and Russia, traces of the elven civilization can be also found in Eastern folklore and Eastern beliefs. So, it is only logical to assume that since we were a worldwide people that we should reawaken in various forms and places around the world as well.

It sometimes feels, we know, like we have been purposely scattered about the world to keep us away from each other. Rather like teachers will do when they find that two or more students get each other wildly stirred up in the classroom and reseat them to the far corners of the room to keep them from going totally out of control. If you’ve ever been a elementary or primary school or even secondary, high school teacher, you will know what we are talking about. And we, for our own part, know because we were sent to the far corners of the room on more than one occasion throughout the years.

We know that this distance from each other is frustrating for many of our kindred. We hunger to be together, to find our own kind, many imaging an elven family, clan, tribe, often with land somewhere, some even hoping for an elven nation to arise. But the distance that separates us and the fact that we seem to often be surrounded by those who don’t believe our people even exist and are not only clueless about any sort of Faerie life or lore and, in fact, clueless about nearly everything having to do with anything, makes it seem as though we’ve been cursed by some dark spell designed to keep us apart forever.

And, there is some truth to that but it is only a small truth, a truth that becomes obscured when we contemplate that we are the people of magic and what obstructs us isn’t the dark magics of others, but our own magic that has, for its own reasons, spread us about the world, like signal fires on distant mountains or radio stations relaying signals from place to place.

Of course, in joining together we increase the power of our signal. But that is the challenge that confronts us, isn’t it? The great obstruction to us being together isn’t the outside world but our own inability, as yet, to make it so. There is purpose in us being at a distance. That way we spread the magic far and wide. But there is a destiny in us being together, and while fate seems to dictate otherwise at times, fate is only temporary circumstance while Destiny eternally awaits us and calls us to it.

Perhaps, the trick, and being partially pixie folk, we do think in tricks, is to awaken more elfin. Certainly, improving our own soulful spirits so we get along more easily is important. We need to become more and more like those students who seem to naturally ignite each other’s wildness and alight each other when we are together. But we also need to help more and more elfae awaken, mainly through our own example by living the life Elfin, for when there are more of us who are aware, we cannot help but wind up closer together.

How Much Have We Silver Elves Been Influenced by Tolkien and the Silmarillion?

October 30, 2019
BlogHomeannerElf2jpg
“Each of us find signs, clues and hints from the universe in our environment that assists in our awakening, not just in the magic of Nature and our Kindred around us but also in novels, movies, games, and songs. But the Silmarillion nor any other elven literature is not what first awakened us nor kept these elves going in the dark times when we seemed so very alone in the world without any other kindred about us. What kept us going was our own vow and dedication to the Elven Way, and the fact that we would, when we were in doubt about our path and going through the Dark Night of the Soul, as it’s called, call to the spirits and ask them for a sign and they would reply most affirmatively that we should continue. And most often that sign would come in the form of our kindred contacting us again. Encouraging us even as they asked for our guidance and encouragement. It is you, beloved kindred, that have helped us to endure on the path all these long ages.”

Truth be told, we remember when the Silmarillion first came out; we were so excited to read it, thinking, erroneously as it turned out, that it would be another rousing good adventure story like the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Alas, that wasn’t the case. And while we have referred to Tolkien’s world in some of our writing (see our three volumes of The Magical Elven Love Letters), certainly appreciate the Silmarillion and especially Tolkien’s efforts to create a complete world, and we gleaned what we could from it and reconsidered it from our own elven point of view (as we do all things, especially those things that speak of Elfin and Faerie and Magic in its various forms), it did not help shape our identity. Since it has been forty some years since we first read it, we wouldn’t even remember it hardly at all if it wasn’t for posts we see about it on Facebook fairly regularly and the idea that someone will soon film it and turn it into rousing good story.

There is a respected scholar of religious studies who recently offered the opinion in his research that if we hadn’t been inspired by the Silmarillion, then we Silver Elves wouldn’t have continued the work of our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (EQD) after they faded from the world in the late 70’s. But that is not factually accurate and has no foundation in reality at all. Nor is it true of many other elfin and elfae folk in our experience.

It is true that there are some elves, our kindred of the Elven Spiritual Path, who were greatly inspired by the Silmarillion and continue to be so. They have created a series of pagan-like elven ceremonies based upon that work. So, it is not our position that the Silmarillion has no influence upon the elfae at all. We merely assert that it wasn’t in any way primary to our thinking and certainly didn’t keep us steadfast upon the path after so many of our sisters of the EQD (who had initially awakened us) cast a glamour upon thems’elves and in effect disappeared from the world. Although, we still knew many of them and interacted with them over the years and still do to this day.

We Silver Elves are influenced by many sources and Tolkien and his works are surely just one source. We used to correspond with a wonderful elven couple in eastern Canada named Sky and Aran Silmaryn whose primary source in their awakening and elven life had been Gael Baudino’s book Strands of Sunlight, which is about Natil an elf in 1990’s Denver who finds humans who have had ancient Elven blood in their veins and awakens them to their elven nature. We had one of the founders of the Elenari tells us she had been awakened, in part, by Peter Gabriel song Solsbury Hill. We had a faerie friend who, besides being awakened by our manifestation as elves, found Bryan Ferry’s song Avalon especially inspiring, although she was also the one who turned us on to Charles DeLint’s novels. And it was our friend Feral Faun, who lived with us for a bit, who told us of Emma Bull’s great book, the War for the Oaks; and our elven brother Anadae who led us to The Realm of the Ring Lords by Laurence Gardner, The Dragon Legacy by Nicholas De Vere and Freda Warrington’s great book Elfland; and it was the faery Karyl, who had lived with us for years, who told us of the wonderful Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce, although we had previously read most of his novels.

Each of us find signs, clues and hints from the universe in our environment that assists in our awakening, not just in the magic of Nature and our Kindred around us but also in novels, movies, games, and songs. But the Silmarillion nor any other elven literature is not what first awakened us nor kept these elves going in the dark times when we seemed so very alone in the world without any other kindred about us. What kept us going was our own vow and dedication to the Elven Way (see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), and the fact that we would, when we were in doubt about our path and going through the Dark Night of the Soul, as it’s called, call to the spirits and ask them for a sign and they would reply most affirmatively that we should continue. And most often that sign would come in the form of our kindred contacting us again. Encouraging us even as they asked for our guidance and encouragement. It is you, beloved kindred, that have helped us to endure on the path all these long ages.

And that, we expect, is true of nearly all elfae folk. While we are inspired by this or that book, story or song, it is the knowledge, example and nurturing of each other that really keeps us going. Had the Silmarillion never been published, then surely something else would have come to inspire us. In fact, although we do love professor Tolkien and all his work, we found Brian Froud and Alan Lee’s book Faeries that first came out in 1978 far more inspirational than the Silmarillion, even if Brain Froud displayed a propensity for drawing the Unseelie Fae most of all. We elfae folk awaken each other, and the growth of the modern Elven Awakening has occurred and continues to occur because we keep each other going. And while we love books, movies and other dramas about us, and we surely love elven and fae music, they merely reinforce our elfin culture and identity. They don’t form it, we do.

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.”

“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.”

Our Magical Elven Love Letters (see volume 1, volume 2, and volume 3 ,  are now available on Amazon, with a compilation of hundreds of letters we have sent to our Otherkin since 1979. 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.

What Will Elves Be Like in the Future?

December 1, 2018
silver_peacockfeather
“These will be more feeling oriented, psychic beings with telekinetic, telepathic and other abilities and these abilities which now exist in most elves in a very latent form expressing itself in small ways will flower in the future. So while humanity in general will become more psychic, so shall the elves grow far beyond our present abilities.”

2_3_7tinystar

What will elves be like in the future? Who knows? That’s one of the marvelous things about elves and elfin, we are ever changing and evolving. Our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (see our series Books of Correspondence Between The Silver Elves and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters, four volumes), a sisterhood we were part of back in the mid 1970’s, used to say that it was important for elves to be as adaptable as possible while letting go of most of one’s preferences and aversions. One of our sisters used to say that the difference between those who were truly elven and those who were attracted to us but just couldn’t make the leap to joining us and being a part of our culture was the ability to change.

     And surely whatever we might say about elves in the future would only be a projection on our part, based mostly upon our own experience, and the reality would be rather different. And that is one of the things that is most wonderful about Elfin and being Elven is that Elfin is full of surprises. And while we elves are generally hard to surprise since we often have The Sight, we love wondrous surprises and Elfin surprises us regularly and people, particularly elfae folk, always surprise us.

     Yet there are certain consistencies to elfin being that will most likely remain the same. We are enchanters by our natures and we love magic and the magic of our essential being is likely to grow stronger and more potent. In fact, it is likely that we will become ever more of what people have always imagined us to be. We will be changing but mostly by becoming more of our own true s’elves.

     We can assume that all of humanity (mankind and elfae alike) will be motivated to continue to develop preferred traits, i.e., those traits that are based on instinctual drives of attaining happiness and longevity. Since beauty is a preferred trait in human beings and is nearly always projected as an aspect of elven being, it is likely that we will become ever more handsome and beautiful as a elven people. Peter Jackson said that casting actors to play Tolkien’s elves in the Lord of the Rings movies was basically about finding fashion models.

     Since, longevity is a preferred trait, and since near immortality is also something that elves are almost always accorded in legend and lore, it is likely we will become healthier and more resilient, less prone to disease and longer lived altogether. Besides we tend to be happy people and happiness is a key to longevity. We delight in life, find purpose in life and are most often life artists. Our art is life.

     Since intelligence is a preferred trait, although you wouldn’t always know it by observing Mankind overall, we will surely be ever more intelligent as an elven people. We, after all, are ever seeking to learn and increase our knowledge as well as our ability to accurately think about the facts we encounter.

     According to elven esoteric lore with a more New Age concept, we elves of the current era are proto-types of the sixth sub race of the fifth root race of humanity, which in itself will be a proto-type of the coming sixth root race of humanity overall. These will be more feeling oriented, psychic beings with telekinetic, telepathic and other powers and these powers which now exist in most elves in a very latent form expressing itself in small ways will flower in the future. So while humanity in general will become more psychic, so shall the elves grow far beyond our present abilities. The Sight will become telescopic vision and we elves will sense nearly everything that is to come while retaining our basic delight in all that is wonderous in the world, the Universe and Nature.

     Despite the fact that we elves are, and are most often seen as, a mystically magical people, we are very scientifically oriented and most likely will increasingly continue to be so. To us, science is just another form of wizardry. Sorcery is Psychology. Astronomy is a branch of Astrology. Chemistry is a 101 class for Alchemy. Medicine is Herbalism and Shamanism. Every science you can name stems from magic (see Fraser The Golden Bough) and will eventually return to it to our elven way of thinking. We know that this is just semantics, but that’s the point of Grammarye, isn’t it? Weaving magic with words. It is just the elven way of perceiving the world. Others may wish to use other terminology for things, but we are elves and the whole world is magic to our eyes and our hearts.

     And that’s the point isn’t it? No matter what changes may occur in the world, in technology, in our own being, we will still be elves now and forever. Whether we live on the material plane or some other, we are soulful spirits evolving into greater and more vibrant being. We can only guess at the details of what we elves will be like in the future. As we can only guess at what fashions we might wear. But what is certain is that we are becoming ever more elven, which is to say more enchanting and that is what it has always been about. What will elves be like in the future? Marvelous, simply marvelous. Just as we are now only better.

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

Also, we hope you will come to our website and enjoy reading samples of all our 40+ books on magic and enchantment and the Elven Way at: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfbooks.html  We have many books  on being elves and the Elven Way to choose from, but for the best oracle to help guide you into your most enlightened future s’Elf, we suggest the I Ching:

The Elven Book of Changes: A Magical Interpretation of the I Ching is a magical interpretation of the I Ching or Book of Changes, and is for elves, magicians, otherkin, and magic wielders of all kinds. It is written without gender bias and serves both as an Oracle and as a book of instruction to help the magician find hir way through the maze of modern life, the mystical worlds of spirit, and the magical realms of Faerie.

If you want to hear the voice of the ancestors and get true guidance and sagely advice from them, the I Ching is a good way to go about it. The Elven Book Of Changes is a version of the I Ching that merely removes the patriarchal cultural bias and language that is in so many versions, as well as interpreting it from an Elven point of view, which also means with a magical outlook. We welcome you to come here to our website to read more about The Elven Book of Changes and to read the introduction and beginning of the Hexagram 1: Magic.

Zardoaquote27

Bright Doth Burn the Candle Light. . . . . .

Bright doth burn the candle light

That flickers through the trees

When darkened night obscures the way

Its glow still summons me

I ever keep it in my sight

As weary I do strive

To find my way to Elven Home

Where true magic comes alive.

And filtered now I hear a song

Of voices raised in cheer

And gladdened notes of happiness

To greet my eager ear

And stumbling onward

Toward the sound

Of laughter and of love

That through the leaves

Does call to me

From branches up above.

And peering round

My eyes do search

Until they hap to see

A staircase spiral wrapping round

An oak that’s near to me

With pounding heart

I toward these steps

In haste do lurch and dive

Till climbing up

Hands pull me forth

As I at last arrive.

And I am grasped

And deep embraced

And nectar offered me

But none so sweet

As the smiles I spy

At home high in this tree.

—The Silver Elves, from An Elven Game of Rhymes : Book Two of the Magical Poems of Zardoa Silverstar.

Living in the World of the Unawakened

April 12, 2017

It often seems to the elven, and this is not without a good deal of justification, that one lives in a world surrounded by what are often called the unenlightened, the unawakened, the muggles (a la Harry Potter), the mundane or the normal folk (so called because that is how they like to think of themselves). But from an elven point of view, the whole world is full of magic and nearly everyone, with very few exceptions, are magicians of various sorts, although most don’t acknowledge that fact, or conceive things in that way.

This means that we are also surrounded by people who may call themselves men or woman but who are, in most cases, some variety of fae folk. They are orcs or goblins, grimlens, hobbits, pixies, brownies, faeries, elves and all manner of otherkin and hobs (halflings) of various kinds. Most, of course, don’t think of themselves in this way, which is in fact the point. They are unawakened to their true natures. But we elfin need not be. Even if they are unaware of who they are, we usually get some sense of their real being and may guide them, gently, toward that realization.

In doing so, we must be careful of not forcing our own opinions and aspirations upon them. Our task is to guide them to their own realization. It is not our place to slap them awake (as much as that may seem necessary or justified) but to awaken them gently with the song of Elfin.

You are welcome to join us on our Silver Elves website and also to read some sample writing from our 40+ books on magic and enchantment and the elven way.

If you are dealing with the unenlightened or unawakened we highly suggest that you enjoy reading What An Elf Would Do.

Here is another question we are often asked: How do I find new elf friends?

Finding Elf Friends

Most elves, by our natures, are enchanters and surely enchantment is the most elven of the magical arts, which doesn’t mean that we don’t explore or study or use other of the Arts Magical but that enchantment is what we are historically most associated with and is the magic that is most in keeping with our own dispositions in the majority of cases.

We ever seek to be friends/elf friends with everyone we encounter, although, it is true that not everyone is open to this, and certainly most are not immediately open. In that sense, we are like the ocean slowly weaving down cliffs of their suspicion and reluctance or like ivy we grow on people.

Because of this and because of our elf sight, our ability (‘Verfaji’ — see our book on the language of the Silver Elves, Arvyndase) not only to see magic that others do not see but also to see an indication of who is elvish and what their elvish nature may be, we relate to people based not only on who they are but who they are destined to be. We relate to their potential, ever seeking to nurture the best that is in them. Thus we make friends with all sorts of folks, although we, like most elven, wish there were more folks who were aware and awakened to the point that they could share this path with us with the same relish we do. Still, we find gnomes and faeries, pixies, leprechauns and all manner of other folk and even if they are not entirely aware of their own natures, we have some inner spiritual understanding of what they may become. We interact with them as they are without making any demands upon them to be otherwise while nurturing what they will in time surely become.

Awakening to One’s True Elven Nature

March 20, 2017

Blessings3 copy

When elf and faerie folk first awaken to their true natures, they often attempt to define that nature in very limiting ways, often saying that there are only five types of elves or eight types of fae folk, or otherwise narrowly delineating elfin nature, such as proclaiming that elves don’t kiss or that no elves are gay or other such nonsense.

Naturally, elves and fae folk who are more advanced in their understanding of their s’elves reject such limiting declarations. However, we come to realize in time that these attempts to limit the nature of elves aren’t really a reflection of an outward expression but actually an inward one. These individuals in attempting to limit all elves are really seeking to define and discover their own elven nature. They are not really saying, even though they think they are, that no elves kiss but rather that they come from a tribe of non-kissing elves, or that no elves are gay, but that they thems’elves are not.

Once one realizes that all these outer projections are truly a expression of the individual, all becomes clear and one can smile and acknowledge their efforts to declare their own natures while avoiding any sense of being personally limited thereby. For it is the right of every elf to define hir (his/her) own nature and this right cannot be abnegated nor abridged by any other.
