We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid! It is our 50th book on elven philosophy, elven oracles, elven magic and enchantment, living the life elven and on The Elven Way. We have been writing the material in our books since 1979 when we first began sharing the Magical Elven Love Letters each month with our kindred by snail mail and then later by email (later we compiled these into three volumes of books). To read more about all 50 of our books see our author page on Amazon. Those of you who know us, may know that we actually plan to write 100 books, and possibly a few more. So with this book, we are now half way to our goal. We are 72 years old so we plan to live long to accomplish this challenge, but then elves often have the advantage of living long lives.

This latest book, An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid, is surely one of our very favorite books because it is about the trees, our loving cousins, and we learned so much about them in the writing of this book. Reading this book, you will learn about the magic that individual trees and tree groups may bring you.

So now we are excited to tell you all about this new elven oracle book, An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid . . . .

“We have always loved, from the first moment we encountered them, the trees and therefore admired, from first we heard of it, the relationship of the Druids to the trees. Being Silver Elves — Elves of Starlight, Moonlight and the Radiance of the Trees — we naturally feel an affinity for nearly anyone else who also loves trees. And the Druids, being seers, bards and magic wielders, especially found a place in our hearts, minds and souls for their deep love and connection to the trees and to the spirit world.”

“This book can be used as an oracle. Perhaps, that is its chief purpose. That is up to you, really. For our own part in writing it, we learned a great deal about the tree families of the world and for us that was wonderful. We love trees. Not that we’ll remember it all or even most of it. But a passing acquaintance is nice. This book is a way, in a sense, of listening to the trees. It is not the same as being out in the trees and feeling their radiant and wondrous presence, nor ingesting some of the herbs that plants and trees use to enlighten us. However, not all of us, in the modern world, can be among the trees regularly or as much as we would like and this tome is, in that sense, designed to express their voice in the form of an oracle for those of us who are unable at present to spend a great deal of time among them. Although, in our hearts and imaginations, we are ever surrounded by the forest. And in that sense, this book is a forest, an elven woodland, an elvish glade, a living book of tree lore.”

About this book . .  from the INTRODUCTION

“We are also genuinely fond of Liz and Colin Murray’s The Celtic Tree Oracle and even though some people find Robert Graves’s book The White Goddess and its interpretation of the Language or Alphabet of the Trees to be spurious, we found great insight in it, although we accepted from the beginning that it was a theoretical interpretation and not necessarily a factual representation of the Druids and their Ogham Script and their Alphabet (Ælfabet) of the Trees. After all, the Druids had an oral tradition. They didn’t write anything down as far as their teachings, beliefs, tales, myths and history until they became Christianized (those that survived the Romans), and almost everything we know about them comes, for the most part, from their contemporaries, the Romans, and from the archeologists of today who, for their own part, are doing a bit of educated theorizing about the Druids just as the Romans did (although, hopefully, with less bias).”

“There are only twenty-five letters in the Druid tree alphabet, associated with letters of the English language, but obviously connected previously with various Celtic dialects and languages. That has always seemed too few trees to us. We realized that the Druids, surely, were dealing with the major types of trees in their vicinity, the British Isles, parts of France and Spain and mostly Southern Europe, where they lived and this is certainly understandable. We each tend to speak of and deal with the world that we know.”

“We, being elves, however, see the whole world as our ancestral lands, and quite frankly there are certain types of trees, which we love and adore, that just weren’t represented in the Tree world of the Druids, but which are decidedly part of our own Elven understanding of the world of the trees. The Banyan tree is one of these, one that we truly adore, although there are others. You could say that we woodland elves are tree worshipers; however, this is surely not the case in a religious sense but in the sense of pure absolute love and adoration for the wonder of the trees who have a power of enchantment that is all their own. Some trees are wise beyond our understanding and provide enlightenment and illumination to those who are open to their wisdom.”

“At the same time, there are over 60,000 species of trees in the world, so dealing with every species seemed a bit more than we wished to take on. Although, we wouldn’t mind doing so in a future lifetime. It would be rather like when we created, channeled, remembered, whatever you will, our Silver Elf language of Arvyndase (see Arvyndase (SilverSpeech): A Short Course in the Magical Language of the Silver Elves and The Complete Dictionary of Arvyndase), which took us over a decade to complete. So, we decided instead to deal with the basic types and families of trees, which gave us 111 possibilities overall and this seemed perfect and doable to our elven minds. In some cases, we picked a whole tree family to be represented by a Wizard Myne (we decided we should call these runes as Wizard Many-s [spelled Mynes in Arvyndase] instead of Ogham Fews) and at other times we selected individual trees. And so, in this way, we have created, channeled, remembered The Elven Book of Trees and expanded our Wizard Script to go with it.”

A Little About the Wizard Script (used as the Elven Ogham for each of the 111 trees in An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid) . . . . “We Silver Elves love scripts, magical scripts especially, but all sorts of scripts. We are particularly fond of the Tibetan alphabet and also Arabian script, both of which look a bit like tribal tattoos to us. We also love The Alphabet of the Magi, Angelic, also known as Celestial, Enochian, Malachim, Passing the River, Theban and the Ogham Fews (letters) of the Celtic tribes and their Druids. We have even created our own elven scripts for Arvyndase that can be found in our book of that title and Wizard script, which is our version of the Ogham, the script of the Elven Wizards and Elven Druids.”

“We had originally created Wizard Script as letters associated, along with the Arvyn and Sylvyn scripts, with our own elven language and the twenty-five letters of the Arvyndase language (there is no X in Arvyndase, the sound X makes is either a Z sound at the beginning of a word or a KS sound within a word or at its end). However, in creating An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid, we realized that we needed a lot more Wizard Script letters than we had originally created, but thankfully found that Wizard Script lent itself easily and naturally to their creation.”

“Further, we very much admire the look of the Ogham Fews that we have seen in photos of ancient carved stones and in modern times on sticks of wood, short branches that have had a side shaved off with a word spelled using Ogham upon it. We hope that our elven kindred will find Elven Wizard script Mynes as magical as the Ogham Fews and that they will delight in it as we delight in almost every script.”

This book is easy to use as an oracle and the specifics on just how to do so are covered in the introduction and through out the book, with elven spells at the end of each chapter, written in English and also Arvyndase (the language of the Silver Elves), to be used for enchantment magic upon drawing the tree or tree group.

Below are excerpts from two chapters (of which there are 111 in all representing the basic types and families of trees) that you may enjoy reading to sample this oracle book.

 

Chapter 17:
Saguato
c17 copy

Keyword: The Number 1

Tree Group Name in Arvyndase: Nedalpa (pronounced: knee – dale – pah)

Arvyndase Name of the Wizard Myne: Lefålyn (pronounced: lee – fah – lynn)

 

This Tree and Its Magic:

The Saguaro cactus, which is often seen as an icon of the American West, is a tree-like cactus that can grow up to forty feet tall. It is native to the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and Mexico and can also be found in parts of California. Note that the sorcery of Don Juan Matus of Carlos Castaneda’s books often takes place in the Sonoran Desert. So, there is an aspect of elven sorcery here.

These trees can live to one hundred and fifty years old. While they often have branches or arms that grow out, some are a simple trunk without arms and this armless tree is called a spear. Thus, we Silver Elves relate this Wizard Myne to the Number 1, that looks like a spear, and to the elf spear and also to the desert elves. Its Myne name, Lefålyn, comes from the Arvyndase word Lefål (lee – fahl) that means spear.

The Saguaro is able to store up large amounts of water, which helps it subsist during the long periods of desert drought. It has numerous spines that are also, in their way, spear-like or dagger-like. And it produces white waxy flowers from the months of April to June that create a nectar that is beloved to honey bees, long nosed bats, particularly, as well as, white-winged doves. But, it also attracts woodpeckers, hummingbirds, orioles, the gilded flicker, a type of tit, and also the house finch, all of which contribute to its pollination.

It produces a ruby red edible fruit that can contain up to 2,000 seeds. Some birds, such as the Gila woodpeckers, purple martins, house finches, and gilded flickers create nests inside the Saguaro, but abandon these nests each season to create new ones. This leaves the old nests available for flycatchers, wrens and elf owls, although non-native and more aggressive birds have been invading their territory thus making it hard for the elf owl to find shelter. Where have we heard that story before?

 

What This Oracle Means:

In receiving this Wizard Myne, one is advised to prepare for possible difficult or lean times ahead. One might be wise to save, rather than spend, at this point, to be strong and stand up for ones’elf without being aggressive, speak your truth without demeaning others, even if they are rude to you, and give as generously as you can when you can do so. For in this way, you will gain support when the time comes that you really need it. Be a shelter for others and help them endure the hard times as well and, in doing so, you will increase your spiritual and magical clan and find a niche in an otherwise hostile territory. The key here is in making alliances.

It is possible that you are in an area where there is not much in the way of elven culture, or elfae friends or kindred and while migrating elsewhere may be a solution, it also may be the case that you simply cannot do so at this time because your job or support system is tried up with the particular area or situation you are currently in.

It is difficult being an elfae in the modern world and often finding those we can relate to as kindred elfin in our vicinity is hard as well, and this requires incredible resolve and perseverance and quite often we must compromise and hang out with those who are most elfin-like while they may not actually be elfae or, at least, know and identify as such. We might call this Hanging with the Unawakened. You are a ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ (as the Wilhelm/Baynes translation I Ching says), or really, a Stranger in Your Own Land and only the most resilient of elves can stay true to their path under these circumstances. Most folks cannot bear the loneliness and thus fade back into the world but even if you do so, it is quite possible that Elfin, in the form of other elves, will come along in time to find you and you will be stirred from your nap and refreshed and can start once again, renewed and more experienced. The Elven Way is always there and available, even when we are not treading it.

Enchantment Spell:

“I shall endure and will succeed

Though times be hard all that I need

Will come to me by kin most true

Together we’ll the future brew.”

This Spell in Arvyndase:

El van jalat nar yon redae

Nåt mernli te zos wyl dij El golt

Yon koso va el la eldi erst lod

Eldan eli’yon tae lasel adur

Pronunciation:

Eel vane jay – late nair yone re – day

Not mere-n – lie tea zoe-ss will dye-j Eel goal-t

Yone co – so vah eel lah eel – dye ear-st load

Eel – dane e – lie’yone tay lay – seal a – dure [as in endure]

Chapter 20:
Dipterocarpaceae Family

c20 copy jpg

Keyword: The Number 2

Tree Group Name in Arvyndase: Frofaborelpa (froe – fah – bore – eel – pah)

Arvyndase Name of the Wizard Myne: Froflyn (pronounced froe-f – lynn)

 

This Tree and Its Magic:

The Dipterocarpaceae family of trees and shrubs contain about 16 genera and approximately 695 species that are for the most part tropical lowland rainforest trees. The family name comes from the Greek words di, meaning two; pteron, which means wing; and karpos, which is the word for fruit, all this because of the two-winged fruit that these tree produce. Therefore, we Silver Elves associate these trees with the Wizard Myne Froflyn, which comes from the Arvynadse word frof, or wing. This myne is used to symbolize the Number Two, and is further associated with Faerie Wings and by extension Elf Ears, which are the symbolic representations of the faerie and elven peoples.

Besides being harvested by Man for timber, these trees are valued by the elfae for balsam, for their aromatic essential oils and for other resins that they create. We elves love our aromatic essential oils and we expect that the faerie folk do as well. In fact, we put them on nearly every day.

These trees can rise to great heights, some reaching 260 feet tall, about 80 meters, and generally grow above the rest of the trees in the forest reaching for the sky, as faerie wings allow the faeries to ascend to great heights. It is said that these trees have ‘crown shyness’, which is to say that when they become mature, they do not let their crowns touch each other, an indication to the minds of these elves of individual uniqueness and nobility. In fact, for the elven, uniqueness and eccentricity are signs of nobility.

In Borneo and other places where these trees grow in abundance, it is said that up to 90% of these trees in a particular section of the forest will all bear fruit at the same time. This is called ‘mass fruiting’ and its evolutionary purpose is to overwhelm potential predators with abundance, (a very elven way of going about things). The predators then eat their fruits and propagate them all over the forest as they migrate from place to place seeking another area where these trees are in the process of fruiting en masse.

One of the major contributors to this process is the bearded, wild boar that tirelessly forages the jungle, roots about in the earth and reshapes the soil surface and at the same time in doing so accelerates the decomposition of organic matter. Its browsing clears the undergrowth, which improves the access of tree roots to needed soil nutrients. Note that the blue boar was often used as a symbol of wild power and warrior spirit by the Celts. The native folk of Borneo see this bearded boar as an ambassador from the spirit world of the forest, the realm of the elves and faerie folk, and possibly the Celts saw them this way as well.

 

What This Oracle Means:

While modern faeries don’t usually have physical wings, nor do most incarnate elves have pointed ears, the faeries do like to create and wear their wings from time to time and we elves don our elf ears to declare who we are spiritually in our hearts (feelings), minds and souls (our connection and link to others). Thus, if you get this Wizard Myne as an oracle, it is time to be daring enough to reveal who you truly are, at least to those you can trust, and let the Light of Elfin and Faerie shine anew through you and out into the world around you.

It is not that you can trust everyone. But we do have the great wise bearded spirit boar (possibly blue, which denotes the second ray of Love-Wisdom, what the Elf Queen’s Daughters used to refer to as our Shield of Love, see The Elf Magic Mail: The Original Letters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters with Commentary by The Silver Elves, vols. 1 & 2) to protect us. And we have our own mature understanding that tells us it would be naive to think that everyone will accept us for who we really are, and those who take any sign of difference as permission to bully and persecute those unlike them do exist.

But they are not everywhere and they usually feel very uncomfortable venturing into Faerie or Elfin. Not everyone will accept you for who you truly are and know yours’elf to be, but surely there are those around you who, while they may not totally understand your elfae nature will be openminded enough to let you wear your wings of spirit or your noble elf ears without making fun of you or harassing you for doing so. They may even find it quite intriguing, while others of your kind may very well join you.

In other words, be yours’elf. Wear your elfae crown as the unique individual that you are and stand tall in the world, independently, and lead the way for others. Find those with whom you can trust to share this inner truth, and nurture and protect each other and let your faerie or elf or otherkin out for a run, or a soar.

 

Enchantment Spell:

(faerie)

I spread my wings and I fly

Up into the spirit sky

 

(elf)

My ears are pointed you can see

I am elf and I am free

 

This Spell in Arvyndase:

(faerie)

El wyd el’na frofli nar El fos

Rep verva tae tari faln

(elf)

El’na polli da lyntïn le vek ten

El da êlda nar El da alo

 

Pronunciation:

(faerie)

Eel wid eel’nah fro-f – lie nair Eel foe-ss

Reap veer – vah tay tay – rye fail-n

 

(elf)

Eel’nah pole – lie dah lent – in lee veek teen

Eel dah l – dah nair Eel dah a – low

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

August 2, 2019
zdancing
“. . . the true magic, our true power as elves and elfae originates from the fact that as we continue on the path of Elfin, dance together along the Elven Way, we become incredibly lucky. And this is not something we do or create directly, but an incidental side effect of being and living the life Elfin. This is not something we directly control by the power of our will but by being in touch and attuned in our inner beings and our outer behaviors with Elfin and Faerie, we draw luck to us like a magnet attracts iron filings. . . . Compared to the higher planes where one’s thoughts can create reality nearly instantly, then yes, we Silver Elves would say that magic is always slower on the material plane. But then, that is its purpose.  . . . It was created. . . . for the very reason that we needed to slow things down and put some time between our thinking and the manifestation of our thoughts into reality or really into form or structure. “

What is the magic of being an elf?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Is Magic Slower to Manifest on the Material Plane?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why Do Elven Witches Call their Covens “Vortexes”?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That weaves through the Misty Forest

That lives between the Mountain of Vision

And the River of Reality”

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

Is Magick a Privilege or a Right?

May 1, 2019
SIlverFlameRed
“It can be both, but in the end, we seek to have powers that originate from our inner being rather than those that we are simply given or are loaned to us for a time.”

2_3_7tinystar

When Tolkien’s Frodo, Bilbo and Gollum had the ring that gave them the power of invisibility, the magick that they used was in the form of a privilege. As long as they possessed the ring (or the ring possessed them) they could use its powers, but the power was not their own and as soon as they lost the ring they lost the power.

The same idea is essentially contained in the idea of the genie or djinn in a lamp, in which an individual rubs the lamp (why not light it?) and a genie comes forth and must do their bidding. As long as they possess the lamp, they can direct the power of the djinn. And this is the essential idea with all sorts of magic objects, rings of power, enchanted swords, cloaks, boots, and so forth. The power belongs to the individual only as long as they have the magic object in their possession.

This is similar to the powers individuals obtain when they are elected President, Premier or hold some other official position where they may wield certain powers only as long as they hold the office. The power does not belong to them, it is only on loan, so to speak, it is a privilege but not a right.

We might say that prayer, which is the evocation of a particular deity, is a form of magick, but in prayer one becomes utterly subservient to and dependent upon the beneficence, grace or whim of that deity. One has given up any magick as either right or privilege and becomes much like villagers who go to the local witch to cast spells for love or success for them.

On the other hand, we have ceremonial magicians who are supposed to have formulas by which they might wield power over beings/demons/spirits who have power. In certain ways, this is rather like blackmail or the coercive practices of gangsters. You can blackmail a person into doing something they don’t wish to do but they never really like it and you can never really trust them not to betray you at the very first opportunity. This is the ‘power over’ sort of magick and this is popular among men. Is this power a right or a privilege? Well, it’s a mixture really. They have obtained the power to force the individual with power to do their bidding. It is a sort of right/rite, but an indirect right. They are still dependent upon outside forces to carry out their will, and usually, we are told, carry it out unwillingly. It is rather the power of the lion tamer. He never knows when they might take exception to his commands.

This idea of ‘power over’ is quite popular in the thinking of many men, and goblins and orcs and dark sorcerers, too. They are often heard to say in movies that one can’t be given power, it must be seized, it must be taken to be one’s own and here they are speaking of a distinction between privilege, elected office, we might say, and right of power, the assumption of power through the use of power. While some might question the legitimacy of power so obtained, few can deny the reality of such power. It is power obtained, even if by force, not power granted, although, uneasy rests the crown.

Similar in some ways is the magician or witch who carries out barter with spirits. The spirits still have the essential power, why else would the magician evoke them, but the witch/wizard/magician offers something in exchange for the spirits help. We might call this commercial magic. One is buying what one desires or trading for it really. This surely is, in part, the source of the idea that ‘magic always has a price’, that is so popular in modern media. In a certain sense this is a more reliable magic, since you don’t always have to fear that the spirits are out to trick or betray you, but like in business, as the Romans said, “Caveat Emptor,” “Let the buyer beware.” You still have to be sure of the reliability of the spirits you evoke.

Magick, as originally conceived, was the evocation of the powers of Nature and setting them into motion through the appropriate formulas. This is magick as being similar to chemistry. If you know the right formula and put the ingredients together in the proper measure and proper order and under the right conditions, things will turn out as you desire. The right of magick here might be thought in terms of forcing one’s will upon Nature, but the right comes from knowledge. It is not a privilege but an attainment of esoteric information that one can use to obtain what sHe (she/he) desires. And one might say one uses force, but really one uses the flow and tendencies of Nature. It is the understanding of the power of the fulcrum, the use of magick as block and tackle. It is not so much about the application of force but the transference of force.

In Buddhist thought, we are ultimately conceived to be one with our environment. We, as magic wielders, command the world and create it in the same way we command our own bodies. We are not forcing something outside of us to do this or that, but moving our own being as we will. Thus, we have people in the Matrix and other films telling someone who is attempting telekinesis not to move the object so much as be the object and then move.

We elves understand that we are not just channels of the magick for some outer force. Although it is an attunement with the magic of Nature around us, our magick is primarily the expression of our own inner being. The Magic Divine exists as potential in everything, but it is by arousing it within ourselves that we effect things magically outside ourselves. In that way, it does not just channel through us but also from us and then we can effect what is around us. Another way of saying this is that we are a part of the Magic Divine, so we just have to find it within ourselves and express it. This is also why self awareness and development is so important, in that we must clear the way within our consciousness in order to reach this potential.

We elves are primarily enchanters. It is true we have, and do, study all sort of magick, astrology, yoga and various other esoteric studies from various cultures around the world, but our primary use of magick is ever though enchantment, which involves the development of our own charms, personality and beings. It is true that we may get others to do things for us, and we surely reciprocate for their efforts, often giving them more than they gave us, but we don’t force spirits to act for us, and those who do serve us do so willingly and really are not outside of us, so much as a part of our magical and enchanting elfin family.

If there is privilege involved, it is our privilege in knowing and being associated with such wonderful kindred, on whatever plane they may currently be. If there is barter, it is in terms of mutual exchange and appreciation. We never have to fear that they are cheating us, because we will always give them more anyway. And it is a right because it is by virtue of our own efforts to develop ours’elves that we have obtained the authority that others lend us and is born of our own inner confidence, in ours’elves and also our confidence in them.

So, is magick a privilege or a right? It can be both, but in the end, we seek to have powers that originate from our inner being rather than those that we are simply given or are loaned to us for a time. Still, we elves don’t mind gifts and we ever seek to use them well so that what we have been given, even for a short while, will bear abundant fruit for the future.

If you enjoyed the article above, you might enjoy finding out more about Elven Magick of the Silver Elves. Our magick practice is unique, as you will see in our book below on using the periodic table of elements to evoke spirits to assist you in life. You may read a sample chapter of this book on our website here:

elements_book
The Elements of Elven Magic: A New View of Calling the Elementals
Based Upon the Periodic Table of Elements

THE ELEMENTS OF ELVEN MAGIC: A New View of Calling the Elementals Based Upon the Periodic Table of Elements is a book to use for summoning and evoking elements to help you in your life and magick. Taking a new look at the idea of the elements and the elementals, the Silver Elves have once again merged the reality of Science, which is Nature, and Occult tradition and have introduced the elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water into the modern age of the Periodic Table of Elements. It is a new and original view of the Ways of the Ancients as expected of the Elves. The Silver Elves present for your consideration a new and elven way at pursuing the magical art of evocation of the Elements and the Elementals. Their wish is that it serves you well and hopefully evokes your own imagination and stirs your particular and individual style of magick.

 

“To the elven, magick is much like romance. We don’t attempt to force our way on others, we seek to charm them into assisting our will. But we do so because we find them amazing and lovely and trust that through our enchantments, they will consider us so as well. It is a dance and hopefully ever mutually fulfilling.”

The Circle of Magic . . . . . .

The circle of magic
Goes ever round,
What we did in the past
In the present is found.

And spells we do now
In the future unfold,
In the time and the place
That our actions foretold.

So choose with great care
The choices you make,
For all you will give
Is all you did take.

And all that you gift
Will be your return
To Elfin most fair
With the lessons you learn.

An elven poem for you on this beautiful day!

I WISH TO DANCE FOREVER FREE . . . . . .

“I wish to dance forever free
Upon the dewy down
As starlight through the mist does see
The glimmering of her gown.

And here and there about me round
They come with loving smiles
To dance and play the night away
With their enchanting wiles.

And where we step the moss springs back
No trace that we have been
Except in our deep memories
Shared among elf kin.

And others coming after
In the morning light
Find nothing of our revelry
But a vague sense of delight.”

Do Elves Do Blood Magic?

April 1, 2019
hruins
“This idea of blood sacrifice is a product of the Kali Yuga, the dark age that we are still in during this modern era, this most material or materialistic age where people seem to see everything from a materialistic point of view. . . . we speak here about the true energy that powers magic and while many people believe it is bloodletting, we elves do not. . . . It is not blood or any other material thing that delights the Shining Ones who help, guide and aid us as best they are able, but our happiness that delights them, just as a child’s delight brings joy to the hearts of the adults that watch hir (her/him) so our joy brings greater delight to those kindred of ours who live upon the more subtle planes of manifestation.”
Note: The photo shown above is one we Silver Elves took of the Kaneaki Heiau in Makaha, on the island of O’ahu. When we first moved to Hawaii in 2008, we lived just a short ways down the valley from this restored Heiau and visited it a few times. We were told by local native Hawaiians that the Menehune (the “Little People”, elven or dwarf folk) and other wee folk of Hawaii, are said to have built this temple, Kaneaki Heiau, in the 15th century as a sacred site for the local chief to honor the Rain Goddess and to serve Lono, the God of agriculture. It was a peaceful temple until later in the 17th century when King Kamehameha I rededicated this temple to “Ku” the God of war and it was then used as a place where prisoners of war were sacrificed. This practice ceased in the early 1800s.

Part One: Does magic always require sacrifice? If so, does it require a blood sacrifice of some sort?

      We are approaching Easter, a time in the year when a major religion in the world celebrates the willing blood sacrifice of their promised Messiah, his death and resurrection. This is a good time to examine sacrifice in magic and if bloodletting is truly required.

    Blood magic is based upon the idea that is commonly put forth in television shows, movies and books about magic that magic always has a cost, always requires a sacrifice of some sort and that that sacrifice is commonly blood or life in some form. The fact that this idea that magic always has a cost is repeated again and again over decades in the popular media makes it suspect in the minds of elves. Anything the normal folk unthinkingly parrot as truth, in the experience of these elves, is usually false or a twisted version of the reality created to reinforce their particular prejudices concerning the nature of life and the world. And we automatically examine it just because they believe it to be so and they are almost always mistaken.

     So, let’s consider this idea that magic always requires sacrifice and that blood is usually the most common and effective sacrifice one can render, not dismiss it out of hand, but render it due consideration as to its value and veracity. After all, as they tell us even a broken clock is right twice a day (unless it’s a digital clock and then it’s probably not keeping time at all) and the world of the normals is often very much like a broken clock, ever trying to run backwards or keep time perpetually the same and unchanging.

     Surely, most things in life require effort. Magic is basically action based on intention and action requires us to do something, so certainly we could say that magic does require some energy input to occur, yet, on the other hand, there is both the magic that we do and the magic that we experience. The idea as expressed on some bumper stickers that Magic Happens, has some truth to it. Some magic just seems to happen and these elves have been the recipients of a great deal of luck in our lives of which we didn’t do anything at all (at least not in this lifetime) to necessarily make it happen or deserve it except to be our own true s’elves.

     Yet, to do magic ours’elves, to create enchantments … that does require a bit of energy. Still, from an elven point of view the best enchantments require very little input and give a great deal in return, so much so that one is surely getting more than one is putting out and thus has more than enough to invest again. Enchantments pay off, and the best enchantments seem effortless. Isn’t that really the idea of magic as well as good business that investment brings greater profit? If we plant a seed and it grows into a tree that produces fruit for generations, we have invested little and gained a great deal. That’s elven magic.

     But does magic always cost? If we wish to turn on the lights and we wave our hand and the light comes on, that requires us to wave our hand, surely. Not to mention, but we will, the electricity bill. Yet, we could just walk out into the daylight and get light for free, except we’d have to get off our butts and walk out. And who hasn’t felt the sun on them and sensed its great magic, or looked at a night sky filled with stars and not experienced the magic it brings, or the magic and enchantment of the night itself. Yet, clearly at least minimum of effort is involved. So, in as much as everything in life requires some effort or investment, magic surely does as well. Although, again, one can experience magic for free. It is all about us.

     But does that investment need to be blood, by which is generally meant pain or harm in some way to a living being (oneself or others)? And as a side note, why on televisions shows are they nearly always cutting themselves across their palms? That’s a hard place to heal, being flexed so often, wouldn’t it be better, if one did offer blood to prick one’s thumb, as in the fairy tales?

     We won’t even get into the idea of killing chickens and other animals and all that other stuff that isn’t really sacrifice at all, except to say that all true sacrifice must be voluntary and leave it at that. We Silver Elves have spoken of this issue elsewhere numerous times.

     But if we believe that sacrifice is necessary, and done properly, which is to say willingly, why blood sacrifice? Why not spit, or feces or urine? What is blood really but a carrier of our DNA and genetic coding. How about our our semen? Doesn’t that have our DNA in it?

     This idea of blood sacrifice is a product of the Kali Yuga, the dark age that we are still in during this modern era, this most material or materialistic age where people seem to see everything from a materialistic point of view. Just as people talk about being of the elven blood and saying that they can trace their ancestry back to the Scythians and that thus in itself makes them elven, so blood is thought by materialistic thinkers to be somehow efficacious in terms of magic. But our question remains. Why not semen? Wouldn’t it be just as or even more efficacious?

     Certainly, urine or feces or spit might be effective in spells that involve banishing someone. After all, aren’t we magically saying that they should ‘piss off’. And when we have contempt for people, don’t we spit at or on them, cursing them as we do so? So why is blood thought to be so powerful?

     Well, urine and feces are waste products. Certainly, we don’t wish to offer the spirits something that is considered unworthy and essentially worthless, (although it can in time become great fertilizer and how precious is that?). And we could probably say the same about spit. But semen isn’t a waste product, per se. It is the essence of life. Shouldn’t that be a fitting offering. In certain ways, even more fitting? And a few strands of our hair pulled from our head would also be full of our DNA.

     But we elves ask to whom are they giving sacrifice, or offering, and why? Devotees make offerings to their gods and demi-gods and goddesses of blood to demonic spirits, while offering fruit and other offerings to more benevolent beings. But to whom are magic wielders sacrificing blood or whatever to? To gods? To spirits? If so, what sort of magicians are they that require and appeal to intermediaries to do the magic for them? They might as well be praying for rain. The magician exercises power directly. He or she tosses a ball (a ball of light), sHe (he/she) doesn’t appeal to, or depend upon, some spirit to toss the ball for hir (her/him). (See Frazer and the introduction to The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion.) The enchantment/magician wields power, so what does blood or sacrifice have to do with it? We elven magicians strive to act in accordance with laws of Nature, not appeal to outside forces to act for us.

“To the elven, magic is much like romance. We don’t attempt to force our way on others, we seek to charm them into assisting our will. But we do so because we find them amazing and lovely and trust that through our enchantments, they will consider us so as well. It is a dance and hopefully ever mutually fulfilling.”
—The Silver Elves

Part Two: If the true energy that powers magic is not bloodletting, why is it in popular culture today?

     The idea of blood magic, in our opinion, while it has wormed its way into popular culture really comes from religion. Of course, because the normal folk consider believing in god to be normal, they will pretend they do so, although in truth the only thing that they often really believe in is appearances and social position and hierarchy. But we are not here to criticize the herd for doing what they have learned is best suited to surviving and advancing in the world. They do what they do because they are survivors (as are we all up until we die), and they tell us this repeatedly. They even wear tee shirts declaring their survival skills. Long ages of surviving have inculcated these behaviors within them. Just as the long ages of being the weirdos, the strange elfae others that we are, have delighted our soulful spirits.

     In the most ancient of times, shamans and magicians didn’t offer sacrifice to gods or spirits to do our magic for us. We studied the laws of Nature, really, we might say the Ways of Nature, or the Tendencies of Nature, since law makes Nature sound less flexible than it truly is. It can be exact surely, but it can also change like the weather as well. We used the powers of Nature to fulfill our wills. We didn’t seek to violate Nature but to nudge it gently here and there, making life more abundant and secure, while using its propensities to our own advantage.

     And then, perhaps it was, we came upon the Djinn, the elemental spirits of fire, wind, earth and water. We began making deals and pacts and using ceremonial magick to summon them, to direct them according to our will (see Jonathan Stroud’s novel The Amulet of Samarkand) and bargains were struck and many magic wielders became somewhat dependent upon them, for they could do amazing things. Djinn began being seen as gods and magicians became priest magicians and then just priests. Well, most anyway, don’t forget us elves, us fae, us weirdo others who continue to remember who we truly are and what magic and enchantment are as well and have always really been.

     Djinn as gods needed offerings and sacrifice and, of course, obedience in light of the covenant form with them. At first, the magicians demanded absolute obedience from the Djinn and then the tables got turned, the magic entangled and the slaves became the masters, as they nearly always do in time. Heed this well you who still seek to dominate others. Nature informs us of the cycles of life and the alteration of high and low. Everyone has their time, in the course of the lifetimes.

     And then blood came into it. Why blood? It’s a curious thing. Born of conflict and the need for certain dark spirits to feed. But somewhere in all this, there is the love/hate relationship Mankind has with Women. Women that they adore, Women that they despise, Women that they exploit, oppress and treat as though they were their pets, that they can whip if they don’t obey. Women who, even today, don’t often get equal pay for equal work.

     Women bleed, regularly. Women are witches, nearly always, even when they don’t know that they are so or practice consciously. Yet, the menstrual blood of Women has long been considered impure. In some religions, Women are not even allowed to enter the so-called holy places when they are having their monthlies. This blood is seen as contaminated, as profane. It is cast off blood and their gods, like vampires, want living blood.

     And yet, those who are dominators still fear Women’s power. Why else would they oppress and exploit them? Wanting them to stay in their place, which is also what they tell their slaves and others that they oppress and exploit and look down upon, treating them as though they were less worthy due only to their gender, race or some other arbitrary factor. Women are magic, they know this in their unconscious even if they don’t admit it in their conscious minds. And Women’s magic, for the most part, is Natural Magic. The Old Magic, the Ancient Magic, the True Magic. Which is, in part, why many ancient shamans dressed in what might be seen as unisexual attire. Magic is about Nature, for Nature is Magic and magic is beyond sexual gender, while incorporating sex within it.

     But let’s not stray too far from our topic, for this is not a screed about the oppression of Women or others. Our topic is not directly about the inequalities of the normal folk or their illogical and sometimes absolutely lunatic and misguided ideas concerning magic, not to mention nearly everything else, but rather we speak here about the true energy that powers magic and while many people believe it is bloodletting, we elves do not.

     Women are magical not because they bleed regularly, but because they are, for the most part, more attuned to their own instinctual feelings and their own nature. Plus, they give birth (with some input from males). And that in itself is a sort of Thaumaturgy, a magic of creating miracles.

     And if you have an elf child or have encounter one, you will know that they are miraculous beings, filled with ancient wisdom and magic. These little ones create magic without even trying. Which is true magic, indeed. They are enchanters supreme and while they are not yet educated in the ways of the world, their fresh and often unique observations upon it offer much that one can learn from. They inspire us and while it is true they may spill a bit of blood now and again, that isn’t what makes them magic or gives them their great powers of enchantment. And when they do so we, for our part, kiss it and make it better, so what does that tell you of the ancient elven ars magica?

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

—The Silver Elves

Part Three: If not sacrifice, then what is the key to energizing the magic?

     We suggested in Part One of our answer to the question “Do elves do blood magic?” that the use of other bodily fluids, such as sweat, saliva, urine or semen might be just as effective as an energy of magic as the all too common concept of the shedding of blood, depending, of course, upon the particular spell. But in doing so we were still looking at magic and its empowerment from a materialistic point of view in which something physical needs to be used to activate the magic, which is essentially spiritual in nature, blood being the substance most often used and referred to in books, movies, and television shows.

     But the elven point of view, and thus our perspective concerning magic and enchantment, is not primarily material in nature any more than our own conception of our elfin being is material. Our material bodies are transitory manifestations of our spirits and our soulful energy. We are not our bodies. Our bodies are just clothes, so to speak, that our spirits are wearing. And while we may be descended by genetics, which is to say, by blood, from those individuals such as the ancient Scythians who are currently regarded as being some of the ancient elves, and thus from the Bloodline of the Elven (see De Vere The Dragon Legacy), it is our spirits and our magic that actually determine if we are elven or not. It is our elven natures that make us elven, really, not our physical bodies.

     So, it is that when we suggested that seminal fluid might be as, or more, efficacious in creating magic, we were really making a sort of materialistic analogy or metaphor for the reality of the situation. It is not blood, or semen or any other physical fluid that is the key to energizing the magic, but ecstasy as evidenced by both the practices of ancient and modern shamans and tantric practitioners. Joy, happiness and pleasure are the true activators of magic. Sexual effluvia is merely the byproduct of that energy and activity. (see Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy by Mircea Eliade.)

     It is not blood or any other material thing that delights the Shining Ones who help, guide and aid us as best they are able, but our happiness that delights them, just as a child’s delight brings joy to the hearts of the adults that watch hir (her/him) so our joy brings greater delight to those kindred of ours who live upon the more subtle planes of manifestation.

     Why is this so? It is so because the nature of the higher planes of being are ecstatic (see The Tibetan Book of the Dead: Liberation Through Understanding the Between translated by Robert A. F. Thurman). The realms of Elfin, of the heavenly realms, the realms of paradise as formulated by various peoples are places where happiness abides, love rules, and joy lives in the hearts of each and all. By creating ecstatic states of being, which is to say by being happy, being joyous and filled with ecstatic energy, we are attuning ours’elves to those higher realms and the spirits who abide there, making it easier to communicate with them as well as enchant much of the world around us. In experiencing the joy of ecstatic being, we become like the Shining Ones, one of them, and share in their great power to move and affect the worlds.

     Oh, it is true there are dark spirits in the world who are in so much pain that they can’t abide happiness in others and seek to destroy that happiness, even though that will not help them even a little bit to find happiness themselves and will just drag them deeper into the wicked magics that have ensnared them. But, they have given up on the idea that happiness is even possible for them and they simply wish others to share their misery and suffering, although misery is like fire, sharing it doesn’t make it any less. They offer blood and suffering to the darkness but while doing so may give them a temporary psychotic thrill, that path nearly always ends with madness and despair.

     So, it is that we elfin must sometimes hide our magic, restrain from flaunting our happiness, while remaining aware, as the Shining Ones are, that while we are filled with joy within there are others who have yet to realize that the true nature of the Universe is ecstasy, which is the source of all true magic. Thus, we go forth humbly, our joy serene, as we seek our kindred in the world and spread the magic that arises from the delight of being elven.

Our Newest Books by the Silver Elves beginning in March 2019 (books are presented beginning with the most recently published)

November 2019

Cover_ElfinBookOfTrees

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

We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script.

An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid can be used as an oracle. Perhaps, that is its chief purpose. That is up to you, really. For our own part in writing it, we learned a great deal about the tree families of the world and for us that was wonderful. We love trees. Not that we’ll remember it all or even most of it. But a passing acquaintance is nice. This book is a way, in a sense, of listening to the trees. It is not the same as being out in the trees and feeling their radiant and wondrous presence, nor ingesting some of the herbs that plants and trees use to enlighten us. However, not all of us, in the modern world, can be among the trees regularly or as much as we would like and this tome is, in that sense, designed to express their voice in the form of an oracle for those of us who are unable at present to spend a great deal of time among them. Although, in our hearts and imaginations, we are ever surrounded by the forest. And in that sense, this book is a forest, an elven woodland, an elvish glade, a living book of tree lore.”

Please go here to read more about this book and read a couple of excerpts from the 111 trees or tree groups with the Wizard Script, about the magic of the particular tree and what it means to draw it as an oracle.

ELVEN GEOMANCY is an original system of divination by The Silver Elves that creates a magical ritual with each forecast. The Silver Elves have created a new divination system for modern elves and faerie folk drawing from the ancient geomancy of ages past. It differs quite a bit from the traditional geomancy that was used by the ancients and the people of the Renaissance and Middle Ages. That form of geomancy was at one time rather widely known and popular among diviners, although it has, for the most part, fallen out of use today. Elven Geomancy has 128 possible outcomes that give a reply of a series of seven (like the seven pointed star of the elves) oracles as your response. These seven oracles show the step-by-step process or movement toward the realization of your question. The Elven Geomancy method is also a means of creating magical elfin spells to help bring about one’s wishes. Eight basic mudras are used as well as mantras for each of the oracles are given for creating your own rituals. If you truly like using elven mantras for magick, elven mantras accompany each of the oracles and are written in our magical language Arvyndase with the English meaning also given. These mantras can be strung together to form a spell to increase the magic associated with the answer you receive in this oracle. And these mantras may be used along with the mudras also given for each outcome to form a sort of impromptu ritual that you can perform in order to increase the potency of what you wish to achieve.

Sticks and Stones, Feathers, Charms and Bones: An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1793823405

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1793823405

This book is another of our original Elven divination systems that we have created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners. It uses the ten Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. The original oracle board is featured on the cover of this book, which contains both an Inner and Outer Circle, each circle containing the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves.
There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame. In this system, to cast the oracle, one may simply throw the sticks, stones, feathers, charms and bones upon the board and read the outcome according to the position in which they land. The oracle interpretations for this method are found within this book.
The introduction to the book explains how to make your own board (with instructions and a clear black and white image of the board included), how to gather and use your tokens (to represent your sticks, stones, feathers, charms and bones), and instructions on how to go about using this book to read and interpret the oracle. You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge

Our book on Amazon USA:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1977583733

Our book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1977583733
Creating Miracles In the Modern World is a book of Elfin Thaumaturgy, of miracle working and wonder creation, although for these elves we much prefer the idea of wonder working and creation to the idea of miracles. We love wonders. We love creating them; we love encountering them. This simple tome will explore the means by which we may do so. By which we mean not only creating the wondrous but also developing our ability to see and appreciate the wonders that are all around us. These things are tied together. The ability to see wonders promotes the creation of wonders.
Some have written in popular books that there is no such thing as magic. We wonder then what they think miracles are if not magic. Of course, what they mean is that human beings are incapable of magic and that only the Divine, which they perceive of in the form of the Christian demi-god and his retinue, can do magic, which is to say create miracles. We elves, naturally, disagree. We are elves; we are magic by our very natures. We don’t so much have to do magic; we are magic. We exude magic from our pores. Our every movement is magic. Magic is an effect of our being.
Creating Miracles In the Modern World shows you, whoever you are—whether you are an elf or Otherkin or consider yourself a member of normal humanity—that the more we develop our own inner divine nature, the more wondrous we become, and therefore in consequence the more we are able to recognize the subtle wonders of the world and the Universe. Thus, s’elf development is ever a part of the progress of the elfin magician who seeks, first and foremost, to master hir (his/her) own s’elf in order to have influence upon the world at large and not the other way around. For mastery of ones’elf (also called s’elf discipline) is, in fact, a most wondrous thing creating awe in those who observe it, inspiring them with possibility. And possibility, which is the true nature of the Divine Magic, is at the root of the miraculous and the wondrous. Every wondrous thing flows from its being that expresses itself through us. Thus it is that in the act of sub-creation and in some cases, perhaps, co-creation, we, like the Divine Magic itself, do manifest wonders.

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

Our Book on Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Living-Personal-Myth-Making-Faerie/dp/1497550394

Our Book on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Living-Personal-Myth-Making-Faerie/dp/1497550394

Living the Personal Myth is written by Zardoa Silverstar of the Silver Elves. It is a unique narrative about a psychological study of the magic of living one’s personal myth, in effect, making one’s dream and vision of one’s self come true by living it. It is a personal guide to becoming one’s true s’elf as one inwardly knows one’s s’elf to be. What makes this book particularly interesting is that Zardoa considers himself to be an elf, yet he uses scientific methods to psychologically examine his identification with the Otherkin world. He explores his personal myth and life as an elf and demonstrates how basing one’s myth on real events in one’s life empowers one’s myth and one’s magic. Whatever or whoever you are, this book is a potent guide to realizing one’s genuine, and potentially powerful, magical and fantastic, nature.
Zardoa uses dream work techniques, oracle readings, and active imagination to take us through a depth psychology exploration of his own experience in the individuation process of becoming a whole person whose unconscious and conscious elements are integrated and merged as a unique individual. Much of the material in this book is based on a depth process study he conducted at Sonoma State University in the Depth Psychology Department in 2005.
This work suggests “Personal Myth” to be an understanding of the self that incorporates the symbolic, imaginal and fantasy elements of the unconscious and accepts them as real within their own realms of being. It is the author’s belief that the Personal Myth is the unconscious’ understanding of the individual spirit’s Cosmic aspirations and potentialities. In that way, Personal Myth is seen as the personality of the unconscious and of the individual’s spirit.

Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders
Our book on Amazon USA:
https://www.amazon.com/Elven-Psychology-Understanding-Evolutionary-Disorders/dp/1722787015

Our book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elven-Psychology-Understanding-Evolutionary-Disorders/dp/1722787015

Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders is written from a unique elven perspective about the present day human condition, which includes an exploration of the psyché of both normal folk and elfae. We elves are elven by spirit, so our entrance into humanity is the addition of a new spiritual race, not a new physical race, and elves have been born in these modern times into all physical races, as well as most cultures and religions throughout the world. In fact, there are many who are following esoteric Ancient Wisdom Traditions, as well as some Tolkienists, who through the process of benevolent evolution, see ‘elf as the new normal’ or majority of humankind in the not so distant future. So, it is important to update many areas of academia that explore, express, and explain human life; psychology being one of these.
Thus this book expands the realms of modern psychology, which has never before included the elves and otherkin population as being real. If one says that they are an elf, most psychologists today will still hold you in suspect of having a delusionary disorder and try to evaluate you further. We explain in Elven Psychology why from a standard psychological point of view that believing you are an elf does not in itself constitute a disorder even in traditional psychology, and then we go much further and explore the disorders and psychological struggles that we observe in our modern society in both normal folk and elves/otherkin, along with the spiritual purposes of disorders and new perspectives for healing. .
Both authors, Zardoa and Silver Flame, have advanced graduate degrees in Depth Psychology and Art Therapy. We have used our academic and clinical backgrounds as well as life experiences living and sharing the Elven Way for over 40 years to identify a new way of perceiving the struggles of elves and otherkin living in the stressful modern world that sometimes results in psychological discomforts, as well as identifying the disorders of normal folk that have yet to be written about in modern psychology. While these are not the disorders you would find in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) that is published by the American Psychiatric Association as a standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders, in our opinion they need to be included to begin updating clinical psychology to include the existence of elven and faerie folk and our perspective. While we do not really support the use of categories like in the DSM to describe mental discomfort (people are far more complex than to limit our understanding of them by psychological classifications), we are adding the elven perspective and new classifications as a way of updating this important discipline. Since both of us had a number of graduate classes in the study of the DSM required for various clinical psychology degrees, we, Zardoa and Silver Flame, have long had many discussions together on how the elven perspective has been left out of the DSM. So here in Elven Psychology we share them with you in an often tongue in cheek fashion. If the elves were to write their own DSM, this book would be a good start!
We Silver Elves certainly do not condone any dislike for normal folk, but we also do not accept the persecution of the fae that has gone on so long by them. We feel that with some reflection and communication, our diverse human population can break through the dark spells of intolerance that have cast a long shadow upon us all and we can begin to accept each other, and even help each other find a beneficial place in society that strengthens and unites us. In the words of our sister Arwen, one of the founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters in the 70s, “This is the only humanity that we get, so we must learn to get along.”

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Through-Mists-Faerie-Magical-Teaching/dp/1480064971
Through The Mists of Faerie is a book about High Elven Magic. Not the magic of chants and spells and ceremonies, of which we’ve already written quite a bit, but of the Quest to become like those kindred of ours who we, and others, call the Shining Ones, and which most folks think of when they fantasize about what elves are—even when they deny that we are elven or that elves exist at all. The Shinning Ones are the evolved beings who guide the elven people upon their spiritual Path.
If you would enter Faerie, or Elfin as we often call it, this is a book about the Path that leads there. This is our most popular book, along with The Elven Way, and it is recommended as a first book to read of The Silver Elves books.

This book will tell you about how the language is formed, prefixes and suffixes used, and other aspects of the language. It also contains many observations about elven magic and philosophy.
Arvyndase was created primarily to use with magic so elfin magicians, wizards, enchanters, sorcerers and other magic wielders could create and chant their spells in a magical language.

Also in the appendices you will find three scripts, Arvyndase, Sylvyn and Wizard’s Script that we created to be used with the language.

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Caressed-Elfin-Breeze-Zardoa-Silverstar/dp/1467967408
These are some of the poems of Zardoa Silverstar (approximately 90 poems). We say some of his poems because the vast majority of his rhymes are found in other books, particularly An Elfin Book of Dreams: A Magical Oracle of Faerie, which contains nearly 360 spells and enchantments, most of them rhymed. The poems in this volume of poems, however, are not found anywhere else.
Some of these poems are from songs that he wrote, many of them from over 30 years ago. Some of them are Haikus. Two are long myths, and one is really a rhymed children’s story (although this is not a book for children as some of the poems are erotic in nature and meant for mature readers). They are all, to us at least, evocative in their way of Elven Magic.

An Elven Game of Rhymes : Book Two of the Magical Poems of Zardoa Silverstar

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elven-Game-Rhymes-Magical-Silverstar/dp/1490995099
This is book two of the poems of Zardoa Silverstar. Most of these poems in this current volume were inspired by the ancient Elven Poetry Game that Zardoa Silverstar created. You may ask, if Zardoa Silverstar created this game, how can it be ancient? We leave that as a puzzle for you to ponder. The Elven Poem Game goes like this: An elf writes a poem and another elf takes one line from that poem and creates another poem from it, and then the first elf takes a different line from that new poem and creates another poem, and so forth. Sometimes the line has to be changed somewhat to make it work with the new poem but most of the first lines, and thus the titles, of these poems came from other poems. Those that played this game with Zardoa were Evansyl, Syndareyn, Aradyn, Ladardyn, Bo Tooke, and even Zardoa’s 100 year old mother, Faith, contributed a couple of lines, without their inspiration most of these poems would not have come into existence and we thank you all.

What is the Elven Point of View about People Choosing their Lives before Birth?

October 6, 2018
faerieUnfolding
“In the long run, all limitations placed upon us in choosing another life, are our own.
It is our own soulful spirit that guides us toward its fulfillment and that chooses
a life most likely to lead toward enlightenment and elevation of our being.”

From an elven point of view, people do choose their lives before birth but there are a number of qualifying considerations of a limiting sort that affect this choice. First, of course, is Karma. Karma, first and foremost, limits our choices. It’s rather like going into a clothing store to buy a new outfit, but one only has so much money to spend, and thus one’s choices are limited. Also Karma requires us to pay back what we owe and thus it reduces the amount of possibilities, the choices we have for another life. Most of the really great lives and situations have been taken by those who’ve earned enough to select them and have the spiritual development to both deserve and embrace them.

When we speak about Karma as requiring us to repay what we owe, this is not so much an external principle to us but an inner one. As we rise in our spiritual development, we are compelled from our inner spiritual soul to repay what we owe, as the more developed we are spiritually, the more we wish to be united with all of life and love is our inner guiding principle. We expand our consciousness to understand on deeper and deeper levels that all spirits are equal in an essential fashion, all are expressions of the Divine Magic.

But this aspect of karma isn’t the only limitation upon us. We are also limited, or perhaps we could say we are afforded greater opportunities by our level of spiritual evolution and development. Obviously, the more enlightened we are, and the more developed we are, (and for elves and fae folk this also means our magical development) the wider the possibilities that are open to us. Enlightenment and magic well used are like money in the bank. The more evolved one is the richer they are in a spiritual sense and thus the greater one’s power to choose from a variety of possible life courses.

But here we run into another and a different set of limitations. Sometimes people choose lives that limit them, or burden them in certain ways for spiritual reasons. An enchanter may be born in a body that is not very good looking in order to develop the powers of enchantment of their personality. Bodhisattvas (Shining Ones) often accept limitations (the very fact that they are choosing to be born into a material body is one) out of compassion to help others. Some souls, out of love for others, take on the burdens, in part, of other people’s karma. They help them carry their baggage, so to speak, in order to uplift them. But mostly we gravitate toward those we love or with whom we have some karmic responsibility to work things out, which in the long run, always means developing the relationship between us.

And this brings us to two other very important points that bear upon one’s ability to choose one’s life before one is incarnated. The first of these is that most of us have yet to develop continuity of consciousness. Continuity of consciousness allows one to retain one’s consciousness and memories from lifetime to lifetime. If you can meditate so deeply that you sleep but remain conscious without thinking then you are there or approaching this state. Most of us, however, are nowhere near this level of development and many people only get bits and pieces of past life memories in their dreams rather than full continuity of consciousness, and our intuition may even fill in the blanks a bit to make a full storyline. However, even these fragments of our past life memories can be very useful to our self-awareness and give us inspiration to continue our meditations.

Without continuity of consciousness, the afterlife, or really the between life state, is rather like a dream. We are usually sort of semi-conscious in a dream but for the most part we are just experiencing the dream, watching it unfold before us and happen to us. If you can lucid dream then you are on the way toward continuity of consciousness. But for most of us, the between life is very dream-like and our choice of another life, another body and a new situation is rather instinctually based. Just as our dreams often reflect our unconscious and the things we are working out in our subconscious, so our choice for a next life is most frequently based upon instinctual desires and motivations. We go to what attracts us. There is actually very little conscious thought involved until indeed we evolve to the level of the Shining Ones.

The other consideration is this. Many folks select a life based upon their basest desires and the fulfillment of unconscious drives affected, quite deeply, by their karma, which is often to say their prejudices, hate, and fears from a previous life. But as we grow spiritually (yet still haven’t yet attained continuity of consciousness), we tend to gravitate toward those lives that we desire that will empower and uplift us. In other words, we naturally choose those lives that help us become who we truly wish to be.

In the long run, all limitations placed upon us in choosing another life, are our own and taking the opportunity to develop spiritually during the life we have presently chosen is key to our future lives. It is our own soulful spirit that guides us toward its fulfillment and that chooses a life most likely to lead toward enlightenment and elevation of our being. We are who we are because of who we are, which is to say who we choose to be. And these elves, choose the life elfin, because that’s who we are.

Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning The Silver Elves’ views on the nature of the Divine and its expression and manifestation into the world as seen from those cultures that are most connected to and historically expressive of Elven Culture. It is a further development from our other books, Through the Mists of Faerie, The Elven Way, and Liber Aelph and opens the adept elfin enchanter to new understandings of the Unfolding of Faerie and its magic into the world and our part, as elfin beings, in its expression. The Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples. Come view a sample of Chapter 1 and read the reviews of this book on our website here.

If you enjoyed reading our blog today about karma, then you will surely enjoy reading Creating Miracles in the Modern World on the way of elfin thaumaturgy and developing one’s own being and relationship with the Divine Magic, with the creation of wonders as an effect of that development.

Creating_miraclesBookcover
CREATING MIRACLES IN THE MODERN WORLD: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge shows you that the more we develop our own inner divine nature, the more wondrous we become, and therefore in consequence the more we are able to recognize the subtle wonders of the world and the Universe. Some have written in popular books that there is no such thing as magic. We elves wonder then what they think miracles are if not magic.

Excerpt from Chapter 3:
“When we come to understand and experience that the true nature of the Universe and the Divine Magic is wondrous to its core we begin to release our fear of life (and death) and particularly our fear of failure, knowing that success and wonder are our destiny and the ultimate realization for all our hopes. We also come to understand that the Divine Magic does not judge us nor punish us. Karma is the response of our own souls and spirits seeking perfection. Karma is something that ultimately we are doing to ours’elves. It is an automatic function of the Universe, but it is our magic that has made it so for our magic always returns to us. “

How Often Do Elves Do Magic?

May 19, 2018
ZRubbingBelly
“. . . most of what the majority of folks would call or think of as magic,
the actual doing of rituals or casting of spells and so on,
we do on an impromptu and ad hoc basis. We perform
magic constantly in our daily life and when it needs to be done.”

2_3_7tinystar

How often do elves do magic? It depends upon the elves. In many ways, our magic is not done, so much as lived. We are magic, as the Elf Queen’s Daughters wrote years ago in their Elf Magic Mail. We exude magic. Enchantment and mystery radiate from us. And most of what the majority of folks would call or think of as magic, the actual doing of rituals or casting of spells and so on, we do on an impromptu and ad hoc basis. We perform magic constantly in our daily life and when it needs to be done. We send elementals off in this direction or that on this or that assignment.

Unlike most magical groups, we Silver Elves don’t have specific rituals for celebrating the Soltices and Equinoxes and so on. But, that is just us. Tië eldaliéva, the Elven Spiritual Path, as they call thems’elves, have taken Tolkien’s works on elves and created a ritual system pretty much attuned to what pagans are generally doing. We, on the other hand, just see what happens on a particular day and do what we feel is relevant. Of course, we know that there are some elves who hunger for more structure and as we say they can find it here or there, or really there but not here, or create it thems’elves, but they will be disappointed if they are looking to these elves for structure.

Our example is one of improvisation. This is why these elves in our The Book of Elven Magic, volume 1 and also volume 2, created rituals for those who were interested in ceremonies, including magic ceremonies for all the colors of the rainbow, as well as golden and silver magic ceremonies. So you can find within these two books magical ceremonies for purity, protection, healing, prosperity, creativity, opportunity, love, wisdom, harmony, as well as our inner magical secrets and the precepts of illuminated elven magicians. And while we give you these ceremonies and ritual guides, we emphasize that you should take them and make them your own, adapting them as wanted or needed. Unless, of course, you are very organizationally minded, which we are not, and then you could organize something and if we were around and the time seemed right to us we’d be glad to assist and attend with bells on our toes and smiles on our faces. We are not against people having organized magical rituals, we just aren’t inclined to organize it, and we certainly don’t intend to plan it, but if it happens that’s fine with us and we are always happy to add to it with our magical energy and Elven Blessings.

That doesn’t mean that we don’t have any magical rituals. We have been doing the I Ching everyday for the past 40+ years. So, we guess you could call that a ritual. We burn a bit of fire on our djinn’s lamp each day, feeding him for when he is needed magically. And Zardoa has a series of exercises and magical rituals, involving Reiki, Qigong and Elven Magic that he does every morning and evening sending out blessings to our kindred everywhere, and he has done so for awhile and will continue for however long. Until he stops, we guess. Occasionally, the whole process changes or mutates. Sometimes Zardoa adds something. Sometimes he alters what he is doing. The magic is ever transforming.

Silver Flame has her own magic rituals, as well, as she often uses Tarot cards or creates spells to help those we love and adore. She also has a practice she has been doing for years of doing magic in public places, sending out magical light from her eyes for Elven Blessings to those she feels need blessings, which is about everyone. We could do magic together on a daily basis, but that would require a bit of organization and that’s just unlikely to happen. In that way, we are typical elves of the Aquarian Age, each doing our own thing together. It is not that we never do magic in concert, for of course we do; and when we do it, it is both powerful and focused on the greater good of Elven Kind. As far as we are concerned, being together, and particularly being happy together, is our greatest magic, our great enchantment. And there are times when something comes up and needs to be dealt with and we put together this or that spell, or send off a spirit or two of the over five hundred that live with us to deal with it. But mostly we just leave them to enjoy thems’elves. No need for busy work here.

For the most part, we just are—we are elves together and that is an incredible magic and what else needs to be done really, except the dishes, which is really what ritual magic is about as far as we are concerned—doing dishes, which we do when they need to be done. Or sometimes, a little later, after they have piled up and there’s no room for cooking, which is another of our near daily rituals.

Do Elves Interact with Genii Loci?

October 27, 2017
Z_MagicTreeBlog
“…these elves are ever aware that we live in relationship to and in association with the spirit of the place where we currently abide and which forms the living body of our realm of Elfin that we call Eldafaryn.”

The Ancient Romans believed in and interacted with Genii Loci (plural), or Genius Loci (singular), the abiding and protective spirit of a place. This belief, however, was not exclusive to the Romans and was a widespread understanding that still exists today in the form of the idea of “haunted houses” and restaurants or other places having a particular ambience or spirit.

Elves and fae folk in general have long been associated with various wild places and in particular seen as protective spirits of certain forests, streams and springs. This is not entirely different from the idea that faeries are often protectors or caretakers of flowers or other growing things. And that we fae folk could with a wave of our hand either bless or blight livestock or crops. This idea was extended, as elves and fair folk in general were increasingly seen as elements of fantasy, to witches and their ability to bless or ruin crops. And during the inquisition, one of the many accusations about a particular woman accused of witchcraft was that her neighbor’s crops failed or their cattle fell ill.

For our own part, these elves relate to the various spirits of whatever place we may be. We typically greet the trees each day as we see them, often bidding hello to the Faerie realms through them, saying, “Good morning, Faerie,” or well, not morning, we are seldom up for morning, but surely, “Good afternoon, Faerie,” or “Good Evening.” We also greet the birds and the other creatures we may encounter. When we used to live out in Makaha (often referred to here on O’ahu as the Wild West) in a valley between two mountains, we’d greet the mountains each day. However, these were old mountains, formed from volcanic ash, and every six months to a year someone would go climbing on them and fall to hir death, thus voluntarily offering their lifeblood to these ancient spirits.

There might be a tendency for many people to picture the spirit of a mountain as being separate from the mountain, and in the sense that we are spirits that live in humanoid elven bodies but are not those bodies, this is true for those spirits as well. At the same time, the mountain is the spirit in the same sense that our bodies are a vibrational manifestation of our spirits and while we might be separated from each other, and surely will in time, while we inhabit these bodies we are one. (See our book Eldafaryn: True Tales of Magic from the Lives of the Silver Elves.)

Thus these elves are ever aware that we live in relationship to and in association with the spirit of the place where we currently abide and which forms the living body of our realm of Elfin that we call Eldafaryn. We also, when we go traveling, carry stones that we’ve painted sigils upon and instilled with magic to leave as gifts for the genii loci of the various realms we are passing through. It is, after all, from an elven point of view only courteous to bring gifts when visiting others. Hoping in this way to gain the friendship and blessing of the spirits of those realms.

We are, of course, animists seeing the life in all things, just as the physicist understands that everything is composted of atoms and energy, we understand that everything is indeed alive with its own vibration, nature, experience and inclinations. As elves, we ever seek to be on friendly terms as much as possible with everyone.

Eldafaryn: True Tales of Magic from the Lives of the Silver Elves

     Eldafaryn (Elf Haven) contains a series of vignettes from the lives of the Silver Elves starting in the present and going back and forth through time describing their lives, their magic, their philosophy and their unique view of the world. If you’ve ever wanted to see Elfland from the inside, as the elves view and live it, here’s your chance.
These are true stories of elfin magic from the lives of the Silver Elves. They are as complete as our memories and confidences allow. There are things we cannot tell you, some secrets we cannot reveal, but what we do tell you is true. The book begins with the latest relocation of our Eald (magical home/realm) and the energizing thereof, and proceeds to reflections from former Ealds and magical events and people in our lives in the past and present. We hope you enjoy it.

We also invite you to read about and read sample chapters of our other 41 books on elfin magic and enchantment and the Elven Way. You may also read what other readers have said about our books on each individual book page.
