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

December 22, 2020

zardoa_christmas2014
Merry Yule from the Silver Elves!

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

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

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

The Fourth Stage of the Elven Way — Attunement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Fifth Stage of The Elven Way – Annunciation    

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are There Any Steps Beyond Awakening on the Elven Path?

October 9, 2020

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

2_3_7tinystar

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

Step One and Two of The Elven Way:

AWAKENING and ASSOCIATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2_3_7tinystar

Step Three of The Elven Way: ACTIVATION    

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6throughmistsweb

2. The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones This is a companion book to Through the Mists of Faerie, but may be read in any order. It is also a very popular book and a good one to start with.

elvenwayweb

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

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

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

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

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

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

And for further reading . . . .

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

What is Elven Reawakening?

June 5, 2020

Zardoa_magic

“In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. . .  We have  been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality. . . . another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. . . . . . “

tiny_green_7star

We Silver Elves have spoken of Awakening, which is when someone realizes, often quite suddenly and frequently unexpectedly, that one is elven or fae or other of some variety, and elves are all about variety. We’ve heard and read many tales of various elves’ experiences with their Awakening, but almost nothing is ever said about Re-Awakening, which is also an elven phenomenon. So what is Re-Awakening?

In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. How can that be? Well, everyone, or at least nearly every elf or fae who awakens, is awakening because of something that is deep within them. Memories of past lives sometimes flash before their consciousness. And often, not so much memories as feelings of our lives in the past or our elven heritage. We have been elves before. We have been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality.

One might wonder then why we don’t just come into this life knowing, from the very beginning, that we are elfae of some sort, but there are several reasons why this doesn’t often happen. First of all, it is a simple truth that the vast majority of us are just not advanced enough to have obtained continuity of consciousness and come into this life with complete recall of our previous lives. For most of us such memories are fragmentary at best, often fanciful and mixed liberally with imagination.

But there is also some significance to such forgetfulness and that is it allows us to encounter the world purely at first, with a fresh unprejudiced eye and this initial encounter with the world often serves as a sort of inoculation for the elfae. We get a good dose of it and are thus protected from its madness.

In each life we come in anew, as our sages have often advised us to do, looking at the world with the eyes of a child, and we see the world as it currently is before we then awaken and remember and compare it to our previous and ancient lives as elves. Such comparisons usually are not favorable to the current state of the world, but we are always hoping that one day we will come into a world that is quite like our ancient elven realms or so close that our efforts to establish Elfin on Earth will bear great fruit.

But there is another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. They, in that sense, Re-Awaken their realization of their elfae nature. This Re-Awakening is usually much less dramatic than their first Awakening in this life, or as we say, perhaps their first Re-Awakening in this incarnation.

Why they wandered from the elven path usually has to do with the fact that we elves are few and far between in the world at this time. We Silver Elves don’t offer our kindred what they have often come to expect from the world that they were raised within, which is to say, rules, authoritarian leadership and preciseness. We tell people to think for their own s’elves, to create their own unique ‘ealds’ (elven home/space) and to decide for their own s’elves what they truly wish to be and inherently are. But as much as the newly awakened often wish for more directive guidance, it just isn’t good for them in the long run. The habits (hobbits?) of the world will not serve them in Elfin.

Of course, there are those who just came to us in the first place because this, that, or some other book or movie about elves stirred some little part of them that is elfae. But in time their excitement faded and they lost interest and wandered off elsewhere looking to continue the thrill. This is rather and actually very much like relationships and romances.

We often begin relationships with a bang, so to speak, and everything is exciting in the beginning. But if we move toward commitment in any fashion, that is to say we strive to sustain the relationship, then the work begins. The thrill that initiated the relationship has often faded and the day-to-day effort to keep the relationship alive comes to the fore. Some folks when faced with this reality merely move from one relationship to another, ever trying to experience that thrill again.

And this is often the same with those who come to us through a fad. They loved the thrill but the effort to continue their life in Elfin is just too much for them. They are just not developed enough in their elfae s’elves to continue on their own, and alas the support network that would help them do that just doesn’t exist as yet.

But this does not bother us. We nurture all our kindred as best we may, when they first awaken, when they re-awaken and even, if they allow us to do so, when they wander off. We are ever here for them. Ever here for each and every one of you, dear sisters and brothers. But what we have to give and offer isn’t always what people imagine or expect. We have but simple elven magic and blessings for you and they are ever freely given and you are always welcome to them and welcome here in Elfin.

The New Dawn of Elfin

February 17, 2020

New DawnCover

Announcing our newest The Silver Elves book release!
The New Dawn of Elfin:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path, Volume 3

The New Dawn of Elfin is found here to purchase on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK.

         In The New Dawn of Elfin, we Silver Elves continue with a volume 3 of our question and answer series addressing the numerous questions about who the elves are and about the Elven Way. In this book series, we address questions that have been posed to us throughout our 40+ years of following the elven way and sharing with the world that we are elves in spirit inhabiting human bodies (also see The Magical Realms of Elfin volume 1, and Manifesting Elfin, volume 2).

     The New Dawn of Elfin explores further questions about elven tribes and relationships; elven magic and healing; the elven worldview and modern elven life; elven awakening and being on the path to Elfin; elfin spirit and soul and elven psychology; more about Arvyndase, the magical language of the Silver Elves; elves in myths and legends; elven awakening and entering Elfin; more about being otherkin; elven views on dreaming, astral travel, visualization, and death; and the New Dawn and Return of Faerie.

         Some of the specific questions answered in The New Dawn of Elfin are: Can anyone be an elf? Do elves really Awaken to being elfin? How does one begin on the Path to Elfin? Are elves immortal? Are the Silver Elves high elves or low elves? What is the elven worldview? Who are the elven rangers and the elf scouts? Are Vulcans elves? Do elves believe that true love exists? What is the elven spirit? Are elves and elfae human? What is the magic of being an elf? Do elves do weather working magic? How do elven witches differ from other witches? Can magicians summon elves? What is high elven magic? What is the elven worldview? What do the elves think about the modern world of humans straying from being united with Nature? Why do elves need money? How does one begin on the path to Elfin? What can we do to help manifest Elfin? Are there Elven priests, or monks, nuns, rabbis, etc.? Does the spiritual path of the Elven require vows? Is an elven soul different than a human soul? What is the elven spirit? How do elves deal with their emotions? Does Arvyndase (the magical language of the Silver Elves) have dialects? Do we elves exchange our own babies for those of the normal folk? Are Elves Nature Spirits? Was Merlin an Elf? Was Gandalf an elf? Do elves love wine as Tolkien seemed to indicate? What is the difference between a shapeshifter and someone who is an otherkin blend? Is it common for family members to share the same otherkin type? What is the importance of astral travel, lucid dreaming and out of the body experience? What do we elves think of death? When Faerie returns will there still be a race of Men? Are there actually portals to Elfin? (see the complete table of contents below)

          Most often, a person has questions as one tries: to decide if one is ones’elf an elf or is some otherkin; to understand what it means to be an elf and how one might know of one’s elfin nature; to understand one’s experience of having an Elven Awakening; to determine how elven magic is alike or different from that performed by other spiritual groups; and to learn about how elves live and relate to mankind and otherkin. In the first volume The Magical Realms of Elfin and also in our second volume Manifesting Elfin, we covered numerous questions on the above topics, including a section about which of our Silver Elves’ books to read on various interests about the Elven Way, our magic and about being elfin.

Are There Actually Portals to Elfin?

December 3, 2019
portal_treefarm
“. . . . we Silver Elves are less inclined to think of portals to Elfin being in particular spots as to the idea of special circumstances or techniques enabling one to step from the mundane realm to that more fantastic one. Thus, one is not limited, entirely, by one’s location or position on the planet, but rather dependent upon one’s ability and power to shift into Elfin or Elfin awareness.”

2_3_7tinystar

If we think of Elfin as another dimension, which it is surely in a sense, then yes there would be portals to Elfin. However, when we say portal, we usually imagine a doorway or perhaps a mirror or some other limited entry way into Elfin or Faerie that exists only at certain places or special spots and sometimes then only at certain times or circumstances. This is often the idea that is presented in tales about Elfin, Faerie and other worlds. You can find just such a notion in Freda Warrington’s great novel Elfland.

For our own part, we Silver Elves are less inclined to think of portals to Elfin being in particular spots as to the idea of special circumstances or techniques enabling one to step from the mundane realm to that more fantastic one. Thus, one is not limited, entirely, by one’s location or position on the planet, but rather dependent upon one’s ability and power to shift into Elfin or Elfin awareness.

This, in that way, would be more in keeping with Carlos Castaneda’s idea as expressed by Don Juan Matus that stepping into the ‘other world’ requires an incredible feat of perception. It’s not about where you are so much as how you experience and view the world around you. The portal to Elfin in that way wouldn’t be in a particular location but would be located anywhere the elf mage exercised hir (his/her) ability to step into the Elfin realm or realms, really. This idea can be found more in our novel The Elves of Lyndarys: A Magical Tale of Modern Faerie Folk, where the characters live in a sort of parallel world that is like but different than the normal beside them.

What Tolkien did was make Elves and Elfin more manifest in the same fashion as there are Japanese people or Dutch people or French people and one can go to their land and visit them. In that way, he made elves and Elfin more accessible by making their realization more possible in a material sense. And, here and there, there are elfin folk and faerie folk, such as ours’elves, and others manifesting as the elfae they and we are and creating Elfin about them by doing so.

For Elfin, from our point of view, and in a sense like Castaneda’s idea, is ever accessible to those who have the courage, knowledge and ability to manifest it. Whether this is wise or not or one should be silent about doing so, we leave to you to decide. There is some debate about this and some proceed one way and others another. We do as circumstances require.

However, we do believe it takes a bit of wisdom to truly manifest Elfin (it is one of the basic ingredients, you might say) and for our own part, we are open about our elfin being to some folks and silent and camouflaged to others. That is how it has always been as far as we can tell for nearly all elfae folk.

From our Silver Elves perspective, Elfin and Faerie are all around us, existing in potential, rather like unmolded clay, perhaps, just waiting for someone to shape it into something recognizable and hopefully wonderful. The problem with the idea of portals to Elfin is that it makes it seem as though anyone who finds the portal could enter Elfin, but that is simply not true. In some ways, a portal to Elfin would be a sort of intelligence test. Only, this test wouldn’t just be of logical intelligence, or of one’s knowledge, and it certainly wouldn’t involve one’s genetics but it would include social intelligence, perhaps artistic intelligence, loving and compassionate intelligence and other aspects that tend to be a part of elfae being. If one doesn’t pass the test one cannot enter. But then, if one doesn’t pass the test then probably they didn’t really wish to enter Elfin in the first place.

In fact, anyone can say that they are an elf and in a certain sense anyone can manifest Elfin. It is not closed to anyone but open to everyone, if you are able to manifest it. However, few people wish to do so and of those who do, they are not always ready for the deeper regions of Elfin. Anyone who desires to do so can manifest Elfin, but how truly? And what are your motivations behind doing so? For these motivations affect the sort of Elfin you will create. We are not really stepping to Elfin for the most part, we are making it real. We’ve had people step into our Eald but that didn’t make them elves, and whether they even perceived they were in Elfin is somewhat questionable. Probably, they only thought, “This is strange. Who are these weirdos?”

Then again, there are Unseelie as well as Seelie elfin and while not everyone will manifest Elfin according to our particular understanding of it, every person has the right to make it real in their own lives as best they may, and no one has the right to decide who is or isn’t an elf or fae save the individual hir own s’elf.

Elfin and Faerie are varied worlds, with all sorts of folk and beings in them, and the chief requirement for entering those worlds is the desire to do so and the effort to live the life elfin. No one’s approval is required, no one’s agreement is needed, magic, which is to say action, rules here. Be the best elf or fae or elfae you may be and we, for our own part, will do our best to help guide you to the inner regions where love reigns and magic and wonder are everywhere if that is your true desire.

The Elves of Lyndarys is an often humorous novel about a young man’s struggle to mature and develop himself, his magic and his identity as he encounters and explores the modern pagan and otherkin communities and happens to encounter real elves, slowly coming to realize as he does so that he may not be a man at all but one of the elven. He is confronted through his journey not only by his own incredulity about his encounters and his inner conflict with what he has been taught to believe is reality and his actual experience but also by his personal prejudices and false assumptions. He comes to discover not only that the magic of Faerie is real but further that the Elven Way, as presented by his mentors, offers him a means of traveling the misty paths to magical and mystical enlightenment.

Arvyndase is a complete elven language and one of the best ways (at least one of the most fun ways) to learn it is to study Arvyndase vocabulary by translating our Silver Elves “Elf Sayings”. We have begun posting our Elf Sayings in Arvyndase in our Facebook group Magical Books of the Silver Elves, and we will also post them here for you with each upcoming blog. Below is the first, and by studying this one you will learn some important words in Arvyndase including tree, star, and moon:

ArvynSaying

“The Elves believe that Faerie is in some ways similar to the Moon in that gravity is far less powerful there. Yet, unlike the Moon, there is more oxygen in the atmosphere of Faerie, and it is much more pure. And, of course, Nature is everywhere abundant in Faerie. All this means that when one takes a step one begins to float, and when one takes a breath one’s mind begins to soar and all things thrive in joyous harmony.”

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.

May 18, 2019

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

 

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

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

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

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

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.

MagicStagesSilverElves

We Silver Elves created this Color Magic system as something fluid and individual. You start with what Color Magic you feel you are drawn to. If you don’t have a preference and are a person who likes things set in order, then start with One. If you are a person who likes to go more by your feelings, then choose first the one you are attracted to and feel you meed in your life. It is said that if you like to look at this in terms of order, one might think of the color sequence above as being akin to something like Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs, only applied to magic and ritual. For instance, it’s hard to do Healing Green Magic, if one is under psychic attack and therefore one must first defend oneself and place barriers and be in a secure, safe place before one can do any healing. That is why, for example, Black Magic or Protection Magic is placed before Healing Green Magic. Also, “Health” is a perhaps the greatest wealth, which is why Healing Magic comes before Orange Magic for wealth generation, and so forth.

But remember that we often are working on more than one color magic at a time in our lives just as we have more than one need at a time that needs fulfilling. So while you certainly may go in an order 1 to 10, what you need is truly your decision and you may need to do more than one at a time. We don’t actually have charts or graphs in our books, most likely because the Elven Way is so fluid. To read more on elven color magic and ritual see:  The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves, volume 1 and also The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves, Volume 2

What Say The Silver Elves About the Difference Between Seelie and Unseelie Fae?

January 17, 2018
YingYangSilverElves
“…the primary difference between the Seelie and Unseelie….is not
that one is good and the other evil but is a difference
in our approach to mankind and the normal folk.”

The terms Seelie and Unseelie come from the Scottish Faerie Traditions, but the idea that there are elves of light or light elves and elves of dark nature can be found in other traditions as well. It really isn’t much different in essence from the whole idea that permeates society of a conflict between good and evil, the light and the dark, although in reality the manifestation of the Seelie and Unseelie and the difference between us is more nuanced and varied than that.

Take, for instance, the whole idea of the Tao and the interplay of opposing forces that creates Life and the Universe, as popularly represented by the Yin-Yang symbol of two swirling energies each with a touch of the other at its center. There are many folk who commonly mistake this symbol for a conflict between good and evil and say that we can’t have one without the other. But this is an inaccurate interpretation. The two primary forces of the Tao are not good and evil but action and assistance or reception to action, or the idea and its fulfillment in reality. Evil or disease results from a failure of the two primary forces to cooperate and assist each other. The two primary forces are like a marriage. If the partners live in harmony, all is well, if not great conflict and suffering ensues. The two primary forces of the Tao are both positive in expression when in harmony with each other.

So it is that some folks might see those in the Seelie Court as being the force for light in the world and those of the Unseelie Court as being the force for evil, and while there is some truth to this, it is only a partial truth. We would like to say that we Seelie Elves are good people but surely we are not perfect beings and we have also done things in the past that we regret. We strive to be better spiritual beings but alas we are not always successful. Yet still we strive onward. It is our experience that the Unseelie also endeavor to better themselves as people. Their idea of what makes for a better person may differ from our own however. And because the Unseelie are, in part, composed of orcs, goblins, dark faeries and dark elves (although not all dark elfae are necessarily Unseelie) and so forth, it would be easy to fall into the notion that they are the evil side of Faerie, they are usually surely the scarier side of faerie in an outward fashion, although we Seelie have our scary aspect as well.

But really the primary difference between the Seelie and Unseelie, as we have written elsewhere in our books, is not that one is good and the other evil but is a difference in our approach to mankind and the normal folk. The Unseelie are often hostile to mankind, wish to take revenge upon them for the ill that has been done to our folk, which we quite understand, and in general they don’t mind taking advantage, conning and deceiving man and his kind, since from their point of view he deserves whatever he gets for all the ill he has and continues to do in the world. And this includes his down right rudeness in denying the existence of the Fae at all.

We Seelie folk surely have sympathy for this point of view for we have been brutalized, marginalize and mistreated by man for aeons as well but we have come to the conclusion that cursing man and making him even worse than he is does him or us little good. Our position has ever been to help enlighten and uplift man in hopes that his kind will transform and become less hostile in general to everything and everyone that is different from them, including other men.

That, besides all the trivial differences between the Seelie and Unseelie, is the primary difference between us. So let us all, dear kindred of the Light and Dark, be in harmony and balance together on the elven path and live with the awareness of both the need for the active and receptive principles to be in balance within each of us.

Where do you stand on this issue?

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

What is the Rainbow Magic that the Silver Elves Often Speak About?

“Rainbow Magic is really the magic of the rainbow people,
which is to say all the Elfae (elven faerie folk) and
others that work together to create a better situation for all of us.”

According to a Hopi Prophecy, the Rainbow People will come and save the peoples of the Earth. The Earth, itself, according to the elves, doesn’t need saving. It is humanity and the other creatures upon it that are truly in danger from man-unkinds’ and others’ predations. The Earth will do quite well without humanity. But we elves and fae folk would rather not have it that way. We’d much rather harmonize with Nature and find/create a place where all peoples, human and otherwise, may be successful.

Thus Rainbow Magic is really the magic of the Rainbow People, which is to say all the Elfae (elven faerie folk) and others that work together to create a better situation for all of us. A true elven civilization upon the Earth. A place where everyone is free to express hir own s’elf and hir own nature as long as they don’t interfere with others. This idea of the Rainbow People, the combined elven and fae folk along with all others, is essentially an Aquarian notion and befits the Aquarian Age that is still in the process of birthing. It is, as we’ve said elsewhere, the essential idea that we can all do our own thing together. It puts forth the notion that win-win situations are not only possible but preferable and that we are able not only agree to disagree but we can also agree to let each other, as much as possible, pursue our own interests and development. There is room in Elfin for all sincere and willing folk that chose to be there.

These may seem in some ways like new ideas (some folks might even fluff them off as New Age, a term that is held in scorn by numerous folks, although these elves have never been precisely clear about why they do so, nor has anyone been able to tell us) but like the Hopi Prophecy and the notion of the Aquarian Age, these are actually something that have been handed down to us from the Ancestors. They foresaw our coming and rejoiced in the fact that it was so, as we rejoice and take heart in those who are yet to come.

Another way to look at this, however, is in the Seven Rays of Manifestation, which are each accorded a color associated with the Rainbow. The three primary colors being the first three rays and the blending of those colors (the secondary colors) being the last three rays and the fourth, by its nature, being a place of synthesis. For our own part we see the fourth ray as being of the tonal scale, thus white to black with all the grays in between, and thus also silver. We elves particularly associate with this ray, although any individual elf may have another ray as hir dominant propensity.

But this brings us back to the Rainbow Magic and the fact that there is a blending occurring. Elves, while we tend to be, first and foremost, enchanters, are also wizards, witches, sorcerers, magicians, conjurors and healers, herbalists, shamans, and every other sort of magician that uses hir magic to manifest Elfin in a bright and positive way that is fulfilling and healing for all involved. This is the Rainbow Magic, uniting our powers to create something truly wondrous for everyone, a world of shining radiance where love rules, magic illuminates, and we dance together in joy forever in a world brilliant with color.

“Some people think it never rains in Elfin but, of course, it does.
Where else would we get rainbows and the mists of Faerie?
Although, it is true, the rains in Elfin are healing and magical.”

September 28, 2017th: The Silver Elves are happy to introduce our newest book release:
Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge

Creating_miraclesBookcover

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.

“Wondrous is Faerie
Radiant and fair
But most wondrous of all
Is the love we elven share.”
