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 began using back when we were with the Elf Queen’s Daughters has moved into wider usage among elfae folk. In the same way the Elven Star, 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 in the mid 70s, 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 the words just seem to be thrown together randomly. “Gibberish so to us is much their words.”

     We sense 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 really “awaken” to being elves or elfae or others really, although we still like that term and use it. 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 the ‘normal’ folk in our culture have projected upon us our entire lives and expected 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. 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 we also give a general reading (using the “Elven Shuffle” for a complete Celtic Cross spread) and prediction for the Elven-Fae people for the year 2020! Then please do subscribe to our You Tube channel and we would love to read a comment from you in the comment section below the video. Many Elven Blessings, dear Kindred! https://youtu.be/UCMGCEDZqo0

 

 

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:

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 is eternal
It lives within our dreams

To make it real in all we say
And every act we do
And when we feel it deep within
Our Elfin doth come true.”

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.

Kyela,
The Silver Elves

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.

And to learn more about the Elven Way and magical path of the elves,
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.”

“When the world says be responsible, what they mean is just obey, but the pixies smile and tell us that we should stay and play. It’s not that we’re not serious, our magic has intent, but to the dark spells of the world we will not deign relent. And we are most determined upon the Elven Path, where light informs the darkness, and work just makes us laugh.”

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.

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.

What Will Elves Be Like in the Future?

December 1, 2018
silver_peacockfeather
“These will be more feeling orient, 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 orient, 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.

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.

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.

Kyela,
The Silver Elves

The Awakening

“Most elfin and otherkin brought up in the world of Man experience what is often called the Awakening. Usually this involves the realization that one is elven, faerie or other, or a variety of other, a mixture of elf and pixie, for instance. Most elves go through life feeling different from those around them and alienated from the normal culture anyway. However, though they feel different from most common folk they often have no idea what they truly are, they just know that they are different until this realization, this awakening, or acceptance comes. We often feel we are not quite human or if human certainly not normal. Normal folk, of course, are eager to remind us of this fact and while at first we often find this reminder of our difference and their lack of acceptance painful, in time we come to embrace their rejection, wearing it as a badge of honor. When we see how they are, how they think, or in most cases, fail to think, we are glad we are not them, although being different has its dangers for they subtly, and too often not so subtly, despise all that is different from them, all who do not eagerly conform.”

“But this realization, this awakening is not always one of understanding one is an elf or other. Sometimes, this realization is, in fact, an awakening to the realization that we can in truth be who or whatever we choose to be; that our life and destiny is not shaped by our fate or our genetic history; that we are, indeed, free to be our own s’elves however we choose to define it. This realization stems in part from the understanding that there is a spiritual dimension to our being, that the material world, our ethnic and social history and our genetic lineage do not or need not, entirely define us. We are spirits/souls being born into material bodies and ultimately it is not our body that says who we are, but our spirits. We are elves not because our bodies are descended from elves, although we may well be descended from those tribes, such as the Scythians, the Pict-Sidhe or the Tuatha Da Danaan, upon which the tales of elves are mostly based; but because we choose to be elves; although, it is a basic truth that we choose to be elves because we are elves. In the long run of evolution, we all choose to be who are truly are. We cannot help but do so. We may try to escape our true natures, as so many “normal” folk attempt to do, but in the course of eternity that is a futile quest. We cannot escape our true s’elves.”

“Nearly every religion attests to the fact that there is a spiritual dimension that exists within, alongside of, and beyond the material world, and yet trapped in this world as we are, where physical pleasure and pain are very real to us, it is sometimes hard to remember this fact, or do more than pay lip service to this idea. But the haunting reality of Death, plus the endless question of where we were before we were conceived, gives pause to be thoughtful about our true condition and the real nature of the Universe.”

“While some elves and otherkin, in reaction to the scorn they’ve experienced and suffered in life, often feel they are superior to normal folk, it is important to realize that the underlying spiritual nature of the Universe and the process of evolutionary development applies to all things, all beings in the universe from mineral life, to flora, to animal life, to humanity, to the spirits beyond, from the atom to the constellations, all are in the process of Becoming.”

“The Sages point out to us that life on Earth and the pleasures, and pains, of this life are transitory. They are an illusion, not because they don’t occur but because they don’t last. There is within us a hunger for the Eternal, for happiness and pleasure that endures, for love that never fades and is ever true, and for understanding that surpasses all illusion. Life on Earth, being transitory is just another dream that seems so real when we are in the midst of it but which fades, even seems to be forgotten, once it has passed away; although, nothing is ever truly forgotten. We may not remember mentally but our experience is imprinted on our souls forever in the form of the Akashic Record.”

“Some writers thus picture elves as being immortal beings who never change, but this is not the case. Rather, as spirits we become ever more masterful in both creating and experiencing a changing environment. We don’t become perfect and then stay the same, but rather are in a continual state of perfecting and improving ours’elves. We do not become, like Anne Rice’s vampires, living statues but rather we evolve into increasingly ephemeral beings of light living in worlds of our own creation. We do not kill to live or live to kill but live to love and love to live. The death dealers will get exactly the world they’ve created and so shall we, which is to say that in time death as we know it will die.”

“Caught up in the world that is, lured by transitory pleasures, or trapped by pain, it is sometimes hard to turn one’s mind to the Eternal and even when one realizes our Eternal nature mentally as an idea or concept, it is often difficult to remember it when swept up in the great flood of worldly experience. One must reach beyond the mind, whose function is to question and doubt, and arrive at the heart, and secure there our faith and cling to it. Yet, should one fail in this, and most of us do indeed for lifetimes uncounted fail in this, we need not despair. The true nature of life is evolution whether we remember it or not, whether we have faith or not, its nature remains unchanged and that unchanging nature is one of ever becoming.”

“What is important to remember is that we shape our lives in all we do. This is our nature; it is our magic; it is our karma. When we act with the Eternal in our minds and hearts, when we come to understand ours’elves as beings who exist in various forms through the ages, we begin to participate in the Life Eternal that is our true state of being and our destiny.”

“Although our actions shape our lives, ours is not a random Universe. Nor are we the only powers in it. There are laws that govern the Universe and these laws arise naturally out of the Nature of the Universe. They are not arbitrary rules created by some outside power, god, or force but are inherent in the nature of things. One might wonder then do we have any power to shape our lives at all and the answer is quite clearly yes, although at this point for most beings it is a quite limited power. The world we live in is formed by the magics we have created in our past, our karma, which also create our thoughts and philosophies and in this way inform our actions, but it is also created by the magics others have done with whom we’ve interacted, either positively or negatively, in love or hate, or both, in cooperation or conflict. It is these interwoven spells that have bound us to this world.”

“We come to understand in time that in order to succeed in the world, to succeed as spirits, we must follow certain precepts, rules, or laws of magic. Again, these are not arbitrary rules but absolutely essential to the evolution of our spirits and our souls. They are the Way we evolve and succeed, become who we truly wish to be, which is to say who we truly are and live as Immortal Spirits in the Eternal Dimensions. We call them therefore the Elven Way.

Some will say that this Way involves the apprehension of what is Good and what is Evil and pursuing the One, or the Other; and that is true in a sense. However, it is probably more accurate to say that this Way delineates what actually works to uplift, liberate and free us from the limitations and confines of this world, what empowers us, as opposed to those things that keep us entangled and bound. Still, to our minds what liberates us and empowers us is good and what binds us and enslaves us is evil, so the difference, while accurate, is subtle.”

“It may be defined very easily by stating this simple formula: We are free to pursue our own magical creative course as long as we do not obstruct and interfere with others who are doing the same. Clearly, we have the right to defend ours’elves and thus prevent others from interfering with our way, if our way is true, and to prevent them from obstructing others.

We may add to this the fact that in helping others to pursue their true goals, that is find their own true path, we are also de facto aiding our own course. Since we live in an interconnected world, cooperation whenever and wherever possible is always advised and of great benefit to us all. It may also be noted that since we find ours’elves in a world where our magic is limited, mainly by our karma, cooperative action increases the power of our magic. What we cannot accomplish alone we can achieve together.”

the-silver-elves-quotes-2From the cover of:
The Elven Way:
The Magical Path of the Shining Ones

 

7pointedstar_fairy

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

Short description of The 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.”
