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 three 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.

The first excerpt is from Chapter 98, the Fir tree. Have you wondered about the magical meaning of the Fir tree, a genus of the evergreen coniferous trees, and the most popular choice for celebrating around during Yule? Please read on!

 

Chapter 98:
Fir

c98web

Keyword: The Number 13

Tree Name in Arvyndase: Tarle (pronounced: Tayr – lee)

Arvyndase Name of the Wizard Myne: Tålyn (pronounced: tahl – lynn)

 

This Tree and Its Magic:

The Fir tree is associated with the traditional Ogham Ailim and with far sight. This is true especially of the Silver Firs, because of their great height. The Douglas Fir, by the way, is not considered a true Fir. Firs differ from other members of the Pine family due to the way in which their needle-like leaves. which together resemble a suction cup, are attached singly to their branches at a common base, and the fact that their cones stand erect on the branches reminiscent of candles being held upright (the origin of the lights or candles on the Yule tree?).

     Due to this, we Silver Elves associate these trees to the Wizard Myne Tålyn that is an extension of the Arvyndase word Tål that means path, as in one’s spiritual path, the path to which we elfae become attached like a suction cup, because it lights our way into the distant future like a candle, granting us far sight and the ability to see our Destiny. Like the leaves of these trees, we tread the Elven Way both singly and together, lighting the way for others who seek the path as well.

 

What This Oracle Means:

     In getting this Wizard Myne, it is advised that you look into your future, your far future, your destiny and see how you can get there. Especially, join with others in a vortex or some other elfin band and work together toward your mutual and common spiritual goals. At the same time, always preserve your uniqueness as an elfae, your individuality, your sense of s’elf and the confidence and inner authority of your being. Often groups seek to break individuals down to make them conform to the group, but those are not truly elven groups. In elfin groups, we light the way for each other. We support each other’s individuality and often each other’s eccentricities and we tread the path together as strong individuals united.

     Be strong, kindred. Look for yours’elf into the future and see what is there for you. Others may see something different, but hold true to your own sense of the path. People sometimes talk about the ‘odd man out’, but we elves are the ‘odd that are in’. Individuality is a vital part of our culture and we are all different together, for our uniqueness is one of the things that we elfae share in common.

Enchantment Spell:

“I stand with you and you with me
Together we shall ever be free”

This Spell in Arvyndase:

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

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.

Are Elves Human? Is an Elven Soul and Spirit Different from that of a Human?

September 2, 2019
Zardoa_refaire“The soul is the unifying aspect of our being. It connects us to others, for that is its function and to say that an elven soul is different than a human soul is to misunderstand the nature of humanity and, even more so, the true nature of the soul. All souls are One. Soul is the connective tissue of the energetic Universe. It seeks similarities not differences by its very nature. . . . .And while each elven spirit is unique, we do have a high propensity by our very elven spirit to seek to embrace our inner Nature within the human body or the true Nature of whatever form we have taken. And in that way, our elven spirits move us to evolve to be super human and lead humanity in uniting body and mind and developing intuitional intelligence through awareness of our inner Nature, as Humans will also do in the Ancient Future.”

 

Are Elves Human?

From our point of view, not all Elves or Fae or Faeries or Otherkin are human. There are elf birds, and elf trees, and elf deer and many other elfin beings who are not human at all or only sort of. Surely, the porpoises and dolphins are elfin without being human, although they are mammals like humans. And, there are the Shining Ones who have advanced to the point where they don’t need human bodies at all anymore but may still take one on because the material realm is a great place to not only learn things but also to test one’s spirit, to develop one’s soulful connection to others, to improve one’s powers and abilities and one’s adeptship in magic and enchantment, and also to help advance and awaken our kindred still learning in the material world. We don’t have to have teachers but they can be very helpful.

And, of course, there are all those who are in the In Between, in the life between physical manifestations, where one doesn’t have a body, per se, one just is as one often is in one’s dreams. The development of Lucid Dreaming can be an important aid to navigating those realms where physicality has given way to pure awareness and sentient consciousness.

Of course, there are many elfae folks in human bodies who say that they are not human. This sounds contradictory and even a bit crazy at times, since they clearly have human bodies. But what they are really saying is that while they may have a human body on the material plane that their spirit is other than human. They may appear to be humans on the surface, but inside they are dragons, or faeries, or elves or aspiring Shining Ones, but then, who of us aren’t aspiring Shining Ones, really?

This is rather similar to those who, while they may have the body of a male or female in physical form, feel within that they are really of the other gender. If we add to this the fact that doctors for generations have surgically altered children who have been born with both sexual organs so they will only adhere to one gender, one can understand that life is much more complex in reality than the black and white —falsehood and absolute truth — that many people like to think defines the world and therefore they unfortunately do not always accept many beautiful variations of life. The moon doesn’t just come out at night.

A conflict arises, however, due greatly to the fact that this is the Kali Yuga or Dark Age or Materialistic Age, where nearly everything is conceived of as having materialistic underpinnings and origins. We have passed the half way point, dear Kindred, of our descend into matter and now we begin to slowly ascend again into the understanding of the spiritual nature and origin of life but still many people are affected deeply by this materialistic orientation. So, it is that many individuals who are spiritually Other, but have material human bodies, wish to believe that their physical body is also somehow better or essentially different than those around them, claiming some genetic source of their spiritual being. And who is to say that this isn’t so on some very subtle level. If there is a material source for everything than surely the reason we feel we are, say we are and live as elves, fae and others can be found in some, as yet, undiscovered aspect of our genetic makeup. We are human surely but of a different sort.

It does seem to be true, at least we elves have often encountered the fact, that elfin folk often look younger than our contemporaries and often live longer. But that really has more to do with the way we live our lives than strict genetics. We tend to take care of ours’elves. We eat as healthily as we can, we exercise, and avoid (surely limit the use of) most of those things, such as cigarettes and addictive drugs, that have such a wearing and aging affect upon the human body.

If our human bodies are superior to the bodies of those normal folk who are around us, it is mostly because we have cared for our bodies, rather like an automobile that is well maintained, rather than neglected and abused them. In living the life Elfin, we choose the superior path of care and maintenance for our minds, spirits, souls and our bodies, in every dimension and the care of our others as well. This is the Elven Way and while we may not all be human, or not human all the time, or not entirely human, we are human enough and elfin enough to do our best to strive to create a better world for us and all others.

There are some elfin folk who like to claim that their bodies, while humanoid, are not really human. They tell us they have superior elven bodies due to their special genetic lineage. Nicholas De Vere claimed that those of pure elven blood, by which he meant direct descent from the Scythians, had a genetic power to do magic and also to being rulers of average humanity. According to him, elves were born to rule. While he provided a series of documents (we would have preferred DNA test) indicating the purity of his lineage, he offered no real proof or evidence that he could do magic that others couldn’t or that he would, in fact, make a good ruler.

In truth, there isn’t much, if any, evidence at all that great rulers produce children who are also great rulers. Nor that great mechanics give birth to great mechanics or great artists to great artists. It is not that it never happens, but it is rather rare really. It would be more accurate to say, we think, that those who are raised from children and educated in mechanics, or violin or anything else, have some advantage in developing that skill over others who take it up later. Here we are not discounting the awareness of genetic studies that suggest a link between several genes and creativity, particularly musical ability. But genetic potential does not assure talent without education and training. Still, there are many whose parents seem rather ordinary who have emerged to greatness in some field or activity that the parents didn’t do themselves but often in areas the parents actively discouraged and advised against.

The only thing we can really say for certain about European monarchies active use of eugenics to create a superior race of rulers, a class above as it were, was that all that inbreeding resulted in the manifestation in royal bloodlines of a variety of inherited diseases and disorders. One can inherit genetic things through one’s blood and body, but things of the mind and spirit, are inherit, quite a bit, through those realms and may also be altered through generations of time with epigenetic modifications. Especially, the powers of the spirit.

Still, we will find, now and again, individuals who make all sorts of claims about having elven bodies with advanced genetics and blood lineage with no evidence whatsoever to back up their claims. They make claim to greater powers as well as the ability to live nearly forever. Alas, often the very way in which they express their superiority makes one doubt its efficacy. We might ask ours’elves why individuals wish to make such claims in the first place, for they are clearly untrue. If you are communicating by email or instant messenger, or if you’ve ever been to a dentist and have fillings in your teeth, have had a root canal or have a crown or two in your mouth, or if you neglected to go to the dentist or neglected your teeth or have been subject to gum disease and have lost some of your teeth, guess what? You have a human body!

Some of the elfae who make such claims do so in order to separate thems’elves from Mankind. They wish to say: I’m not one of those crazy people who would destroy the Earth because of their own greed and ignorance. In this way, these are embracing the idea that the I Ching espouses that in many ways the highest good is being able to authentically say: It’s not my fault.

Some who make such claims, however, are attempting to create some sense of authority for thems’elves. They are saying, in effect, I have a superior elven body and thus you should listen to me because I’m clearly more advanced than you and therefore right. Alas, this is a logical fallacy. While we might give greater credence to the thoughts of those who are truly experts on a particular subject, that doesn’t mean they are always right in what they think all the time. It is not enough to be a noted scientist and declare a theory. One must support one’s theories with facts, reasoning and logic. And those who use the claim of having advanced elven bodies or to being great adept elves as the sole support for their ideas, not only don’t back up their claims with logic and facts, they can’t even demonstrate the true authenticity of their claims about their genetic makeup. What is worst is that often such individuals are not only using their claims to establish their authority as individuals, saying, in effect, I’m the authority so you should listen to me, they are also using these claims as a means of belittling the ideas and the intrinsic value of others. Saying, quite obvious, I’m better than you so I must be right.

Now, we Silver Elves don’t claim to be experts on anything, really. Some people think we are experts on Celtic Lore, but we know we are not. We are far from it. We just seem expert when seen in the light of their own admitted lack of knowledge on the subject. We used to have a friend that would tell us that we should claim to be experts on Celtic studies, because we couldn’t always tell them we were elves. And when we pointed out that we weren’t experts on Celtic lore, this individual replied, “Well, they won’t know that.”

Nor are we even experts on magic, faerie lore, or even elves. Any more than every man or woman is an expert on men and women, although many of them claim to be. The most we can say is that we are perpetual students of many areas of study and are really quite humble elf folk for the most part. We make no claim to being superior to our kindred, we know we are here on Earth together. We are not here to raise ours’elves above you, but to rise together. And our ideas are merely that, our ideas. No, less than that. Our ideas at any moment may change as soon as we encounter superior ideas and inspiration. And it doesn’t matter what sort of body you have, beloved kin, it’s the power of our hearts and mind that will bring us all closer to living the life Elfin.

“Our elven spirit makes us unique.
Our elfin soul unites us.
Thus, we are each One, Together.”
—The Silver Elves

Is an Elven Soul and Spirit Different from that of a Human?

At the heart of this question, there is an unspoken assumption that elves are not human. As we have said in the article above, we know that there are many folk who would like to think that they are different than the humans around them but nearly anyone who can or is likely to read these words, surely has a human body to do so.

It is not that there aren’t elven who don’t have human bodies: elven porpoises, dolphins, elven birds, etc. and elves of other dimensions, but they are, for the most part, not likely to read these words and then write and claim they aren’t human. The difference between elves and others, really, is more like the difference between Whites and Blacks and Asians and every other variety of people thereof, except for the fact that we elves may be born into bodies from any of those races and often born into ones that are some mixture thereof. The difference between elves and other humans is more one of temperament and spirit rather than strict physical distinctions, although we do tend to age less quickly, are thinner for the most part and less bulkily muscular and so on, but those aspects may vary as well.

Most often when people say that they are elven, fae or other and not human, what they are really saying is that energetically or spiritually, which is to say their true inner being, is other than human. Alas, because so many people in this Materialistic Age feel compelled to consider the physical world as the base from which all this evolves, they express this in a physical fashion, even though it is clear that there is no physical or actually major genetic basis for them doing so.

However, if you view the world from an energetic point of view, then it should be clear that the world is filled with beings who are not really human. In fact, quite a number are inhuman beings. But there are also chickens, pigs, old goats, young goats, and sheep, lots and lots of sheep, each bleating about every little thing they disagree with and all baa-baaing together about their shepherd who is their lord, master and savior and sticking close together because of the sheep dogs he has constantly nipping at their heels, since they do have a tendency, as they inform us, to stray. There are also trolls, quite a few roaming around these days, as well as pixies, faeries, brownies, orcs and all manner of folk.

This is all to say that we otherworldly types have some sense of our energetic fourth dimensional being and understand inwardly, if not always in a clear intellectual fashion, that this is a profound aspect of our characters. In that way, we may be very different from other humans, but we still, for the most part, have human bodies as well as our fourth dimensional manifestation.

Souls, however, are a different thing altogether. At their essence, all souls are the same. We might compare them, however inadequately, to telephones. However much a telephone might seem different in appearance or capability or the plan its connected to, all phones are made to send and receive messages. The soul is the unifying aspect of our being. It connects us to others, for that is its function and to say that an elven soul is different than a human soul is to misunderstand the nature of humanity and, even more so, the true nature of the soul. All souls are One. Soul is the connective tissue of the energetic Universe. It seeks similarities not differences by its very nature.

It is true that some people have let their batteries die. Some don’t really use their phones much. Some have taken out their batteries altogether and perhaps thrown them away. And some phones are old and don’t work very well, although the opposite tends to be the case for souls, for the older, or more experienced a soul is, the better it tends to work. Nearly all magic depends upon soulful and energetic connection. This is especially true of enchantment. There are those who have pretty much killed their souls who can still affect the world through the pure power of their spirit, but that is exhausting and that magic, as they like to say, always has a cost and the cost in the long run is usually quite dear. Whereas, enchantment and soulful magic profits everyone. You get much more than you put into it, and so does everyone else. That’s why it’s so powerful.

So, there is no difference in essence from an elven soul and any other soul, human or otherwise, because souls unify and connect. Their nature is harmony and mutual reciprocation. The soul seeks what is the same, not what is different and while they can be differentiated through time and experience, just as water may take on impurities, in its pure state, water remains the same.

The spirit, on the other hand, is another matter entirely. Its nature is individual and individualizing and at its essence, every developed spirit is unique. Thus, the elven spirit is not only different from every other human spirit, it is eccentric and unique from all spirits and growing more so all the time.

And while each elven spirit is unique, we do have a high propensity by our very elven spirit to seek to embrace our inner Nature within the human body or the true Nature of whatever form we have taken. And in that way, our elven spirits move us to evolve to be super human and lead humanity in uniting body and mind and developing intuitional intelligence through awareness of our inner Nature, as Humans will also do in the Ancient Future.

“The Radiance of Elfin is like a thread that connects our spirits to each other and creates thereby a tapestry of elvish being.”
—The Silver Elves

 

And for further reading:

And, dear Kindred, if you enjoyed the article above about elven soul and spirit, we think you may very much enjoy reading our most popularly read book on the wisdom teachings of the ancient Elven titled Through the Mists of Faerie:

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

ThroughtheMists

Excerpt from Through The Mists of Faerie:

“And one should know as well that in treading the Path of the Elven that most folks at this time in the world, mostly probably including one’s oldest and closest friends, may be uncomfortable with this venture into the unknown. Your old friends like you as you are, and are often uncomfortable with you are making what seems to them to be radical changes in your life. One thus may wish to be cautious in revealing one’s elven nature to others. Most will simply ridicule the idea. Some, because of fundamentalist beliefs may be intimidated by the idea of magic and warn you against pursuing the ways of the Devil. And since the newly awakened often take on elf names many, if not most, of one’s friends, will feel uncomfortable using this new name. At the same time the Elfae naturally wishes the name to be used to reinforce hir own confidence in pursuing the Elven Way. Each must decide in hir own circumstances how much sHe is willing, and how much it is wise, to reveal and to whom.”

Elves Listen

We listen to the people

We listen to the trees

We listen to the stars

That whisper on the breeze;

We listen to our hearts

We do this most of all

And we listen to the dance of death

That comes about in Fall;

We listen to the seeds in Spring

As they heed life’s new call

And springing up remind us

Of the Faerie Ball;

They summon us to rise as well

And holding hands renew

Our journey on the Elven Way

Toward all that’s bright and true.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Book to help you feel more at ease in the normal world:

What An Elf Would Do:
A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk

WHAT AN ELF WOULD DO: A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk by The Silver Elves is a wry, sly, often tongue in cheek view of how elves see and interact with the world of the Normal folk as well as with Otherkind of all sorts. It is designed to help the elfin everywhere to move through the often mysterious cultures of mankind with confidence and ease.

Gaea de las Aguas writes on Amazon in her review of What An Elf Would Do:

4whatelfwoulddobig


“Think of
this as “Ms. Manners” for the Otherkin set. Ever wondered how to handle yourself with grace and style whilst traversing the mundane realms? Let this tome be your guide! Lessons on how to present oneself as a skilled and artful Noble are here in abundance. Insight into human behavior patterns and tips on how to deal with difficult personality quirks are found on just about every page. Delivered with a lovely sense of humour (I’ve laughed out loud many times), the Silver Elves bring us a reference guide to assist with polishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

What is the Relationship of the Elves to the Trees?

April 12, 2019
ZandSIlverNZ
“Wood or sylvan elves naturally adore the trees. We see the trees as our kindred and friends, even if, for the most part, they are rather shy, quiet and meditative friends. . . . As we like to say, we Silver Elves are the elves of Moonlight, Starlight and the Radiance of the Forests. So, it is only natural that trees are much beloved to us. . . . And yet at that moment, when we happen out into the rural areas, and we look upon the sky at night and see thousands of stars gleaming above us, how can we elfae but feel moved to the depths of our souls and stirred to remember that while we live upon the Earth we also live among the stars, which to our minds are like shining trees in the sky.”

     Elves, of course, love and admire nearly all of Nature, and so naturally we love the trees, the forests, the woodlands and every little copse and hedge, spinney, holt and boscage we come across. But we also love the oceans, the seas, the rivers and all their inhabitants. We love the mountains, the skies, the waterfalls, the wind and much else. Which is why, while we are on the subject of loving things of Nature, we also love Mankind, even though we are sometimes less than flattering in our description of them. So, of Men, while we admire them at times, much in the way that we might admire a lion in its beauty and majesty, we are ever cautious until they have demonstrated that they are of the friendly sort and not the unnecessary and unreasonable aggressors that they can be.

     But while we elves do tend to admire most of Nature, which in a sense really includes nearly all of existence, we do have our preferences. Wood or sylvan elves naturally adore the trees. We see the trees as our kindred and friends, even if, for the most part, they are rather shy, quiet and meditative friends. We mourn when we see them unnecessarily cut down; and on those occasions when we’ve encountered Men cutting down a tree just because it is obstructing their view and we asked that they might consider the life of the tree, they’ve merely laughed at us. Men can be a famously narcissistic bunch and everything in the world centers around them in their own minds. In fact, for the longest time, much of Mankind assumed the Earth was the center of the Universe and the Sun circled around the Earth, which is to say around Mankind, not only because, on the surface of things, it kind of looks that way to the casual observer, but also because Men were on the Earth and thus, of course, the Sun and its rotation was all about them and their lives. They even create their gods in their own images, although, they claim it is the other way around.

     Most of the elves that we Silver Elves have encountered in our lives are wood elves, or part wood elves. As we like to say, we Silver Elves are the elves of Moonlight, Starlight and the Radiance of the Forests. So, it is only natural that trees are much beloved to us. But ocean elves especially love the seas; river elves adore the rivers, streams and creeks; lake elves love the ponds and pools; and mountain elves naturally love the high places of the Earth.

     We must say that when we put out our Elven, Faerie, Fae Otherkin tribe survey, we were surprised at how many mountains elves there actually were. At the same time, most of them love the mountain woodlands. They want forested mountains with waterfalls. And many of those elfin and fae who choose the seaside or rivers or lakes as their preferred abodes, also wanted there to be a forest that they could live in near the ocean, by the river, or alongside the lake.

     Star elves, we would assume, must surely be enraptured by the stars and while, as yet, Mankind and others haven’t found a way to destroy the stars as yet, certainly the star elves must feel a certain loss when they are in cities and towns where the city lights make the stars nearly invisible. And yet at that moment, when we happen out into the rural areas, and we look upon the sky at night and see thousands of stars gleaming above us, how can we elfae but feel moved to the depths of our souls and stirred to remember that while we live upon the Earth we also live among the stars, which to our minds are like shining trees in the sky.

“If you have never been to Elfin, it is hard to understand,
the magic that abides there and permeates the land,
that from the trees does radiate like star light from within,
enchantment woven from true love vast wonders to portent.”

“To the elves, the trees are like stars shining upon the Earth.
Thus, we sometimes call them the Earth Stars.”
—The Silver Elves

A passage about the Tree of Life Eternal and Happiness Everlasting from:

liberAelphweb

Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical, by The Silver Elves, chapter on “Druidry: In Honor of the Trees.”

“. . . . study the Qabalah, also called the Tree of Life, and this is surely a good thing and well worth your effort, beloved children of our magic. But that system, like all intellectual systems, is merely a metaphor for a greater reality and one would be unwise to think that in understanding it intellectually that one truly knows and understands. Study therefore the Yggdrasil tree, as well as the two trees in the Garden of Eden that represent the two trees of which Tolkien wrote, one of Silver White, the other Golden, for these are all symbols of the two trees of the Spirit and the Soul, the Tree of Life Eternal and the Tree of Happiness Everlasting, which are themselves but metaphors for the great goals set before us, which motivate every being that lives (see the Silver Elves Through the Mists of Faerie).”

“Know that these, while worthy studies, are only a part of what you need to know and most of that by experience rather than intellect. While intellect is valued in Faerie, it is but one aspect that is celebrated here. We value kindness more than cleverness, sincerity more than wit, and emotional development and maturity more than great knowledge. But in hearing this don’t think we do not value cleverness, wit or great knowledge. But we also value body awareness and development, soulful awareness, vibrant spirit and much else. The intellect is important but though the world may be said to have been cast into existence through the evocation of the logos, the magical word given and creating life, know that it was uttered in the Silence that is the Womb of all things with the power of Intent and Will and it was Sung in Rhyme and Rhythm.”

“But most of all, in studying the Trees of Life Eternal and Happiness Everlasting you should speak to the actual trees and more importantly listen to them. As the shamans tell us (The Way of the Shaman by Michael James Harner) the greatest magical knowledge comes from the trees. They are first and foremost Healers. Not only do they provide us with nearly everything we need to heal our bodies, they also provide the revelations by which we may heal our souls, revive our spirits, and bring comfort to anguished minds and hearts. They provide us with the oxygen we breath and without them we would perish from this Earth in the forms we currently inhabit.”

“Tolkien wrote that the elves first taught the trees to speak, and this may be so, although it might be more accurate to say the elves learned the language of the trees, but once we had done so they revealed to us wondrous things, for they are ancient and wise and you need but walk among them to be reminded of this. All our sages have said this, go into Nature, go speak to the trees and most of all listen well to them for they are our continual benefactors. But know that when they speak, they speak through their bark, their vines, their leaves, their blossoms and their fruit.”

“You do not need a great intellect to enter Faerie but a pure heart and a courageous spirit. But a truly great mind is also an open mind and that opens the door to Faerie, when it is combined with the hunger of the soul that ever seeks to find our own.”

—From Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical,

Faerie Tale . . . . .

Truth sits in the sand
the bride and groom hold hands
the bridesmaid tells of loves that she has lost
Cupid’s arrow’s sharp
as it does pierce her heart
but in love’s blush she does not count the cost.

A Faery tale comes true
as Faery tales will do
in Faery where the Elder race doth dwell
on islands of the sea
beneath the banyan tree
every lingering sorrow
is made well.

We’re ever one where ever we roam,

For listening to the wisdom of the trees . . . .

Cover_ElfinBookOfTrees An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script by The Silver Elves. “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.

“Every acorn holds the potential to become an oak tree that bears
the potential to produce an entire forest from its seeds.
Every elf contains the potential for creating an elven family
that can produce seeds that can turn into a forest of elfin being.
Plant seeds everywhere you feel they might prosper.”

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

ThroughtheMists
—Excerpt from page 26 of Through The Mists of Faerie by The Silver Elves.
“Elfin, Faerie, Elfland or the Sacred Realm or Dimension of Magic that lives at the heart of the Universe, is an incredibly attractive power. It draws all true souls to it. It calls to the Elfin nature in each and every soul. This is the power that arouses the imagination of those who see or read the Lord of the Rings and say, I’m an Elf or I’m a Dwarf, or even I’m an Orc. The power calls to us through Urban Fantasy stories and the fantasy novels of old, as well as, faery tales and movies of magic and enchantment. But it also calls to us from the trees, the wild places of Nature, and sometimes most of all from magic memories of our childhood, which is really our ancient past, our past incarnations, calling to us. It can also be aroused, and quite strongly, perhaps most strongly, by others of our kind manifesting in the world. There is something magical about these beings and they arouse our own hunger for magic in our own lives and souls. These Elfae radiate starlight. They glimmer with love, kindness and compassion; and they reach out and touch our souls. Some might suppose this to be a glamor, a magic they have wrapped thems’elves within to enchant us; but while they are truly enchanting, the magic arises from the fact that they are genuine and real. They don’t need to glamor us. They just need to be their very own s’elves, for that is the most impressive magic of all. They are not trying, they are simply being: being thems’elves, being elves.”

“A man came upon Faerie but knew not it was there,
’cause he didn’t believe and just didn’t care,
so he missed all the fair folk and the magic they bring,

How do Elves Deal with our Homesickness for Elfin?

February 11, 2019

1homesick_cover
“We naturally are ever seeking for our kindred and we are perpetually seeking to manifest (or elfin-fest) Elfin upon the Earth, within our own lives and environment. It is best of course to do both, for they are intertwined, our kindred will help us create Elfin and by creating Elfin we find out kindred.”

2_3_7tinystar

The homesickness for Elfin tends to manifest in two different ways for the elves, and we expect that many faeries and others have a similar response to their own hunger for Faerie or their particular world. The first of these, especially for the elven folk, is an incredible feeling that we are out of place in this world. We sense we are ever different from most of those around us not only in our feelings but usually in the way they react to us. We feel like strangers in a strange land (a line from I Ching) and they also very frequently view us as being weirdos and those who are not quite normal.

     To our own minds, we are not really normal at all and, unlike those around us, we have no interest in being so. To us, normal appears to be a form of insanity and the urge to conform mindlessly and be to normal is like wanting to have cancer or tuberculosis or some other terrible disease. Why would anyone want that?

     And we have good reason for thinking that those who insist that they are normal and try to force their ideas of normal behavior on everyone around them are, at the very least, a little bit crazy and often quite seriously insane. You just have to look at the news each day telling us of wars, rapes, greed run rampant, and people actively destroying the very environment that is necessary for life on this planet to know that there is something seriously wrong with those people.

     We know there will be some who will object to this, saying that this is an us and them consciousness, but we are not the ones who have separated ours’elves from Nature but they. And when we say they, we mean those warmongering, raping, murdering greedy ones who not only do such things, but rationalize those things as though they are a positive value or at least that they have good reason for destroying the Earth and all of us on it. When we say ‘they’, we are not talking about a particular race or religion or nationality, we are speaking of behaviors that are clearly destructive to self and others, and that involve short term thinking and those who regularly and obstinately practice those behaviors.

     When we declare that we are elves, faeries or others, part of what we are doing is saying to the Shining Ones, it’s not us, it’s those crazy people over there destroying the Earth. We don’t wish to be held responsible for their lunacy.  We would heal them if we could. The Spirits know that we have tried and continue to do so. But they don’t even acknowledge that what they do is a problem (and they, of course, think we are crazy for calling ours’elves elves, fae and others) and that hate and prejudice against those who are simply different from them, but no real threat at all, is perfectly normal and acceptable behavior.

     The other aspect of homesickness for the elfin and elfae is the fact we elves, in particular, seem to hunger for our kindred. We are ever searching for our elfin families and hoping to find other elves near us or within easy moving or traveling distance. Often, of course, this desire is tied up with our romantic and sensual desires. We wish to find our kin who are our soul mates. We seek romance which will, at the same time, fulfill our need and longing to be our own true s’elves in the world and to express our s’elves freely.

     We expect that many fae and others feel the same way, although we have encountered many elfae who simply have given up, in a sense, and perpetually refer to thems’elves as loners, feeling that they will never find another of their kind that they can relate to and who will understand them as well. Our homesickness is not just about or primarily about Elfin or Faerie as a place, but is an eternal longing to be with our own kind and those who are similar or at least conducive to and sympathetic of our true natures. What good would it do to be in Elfin, if we were there all alone?

     Thus, most elves seek to overcome our homesickness in two primary ways. We naturally are ever seeking for our kindred and we are perpetually seeking to manifest (or elfin-fest) Elfin upon the Earth, within our own lives and environment. It is best of course to do both, for they are intertwined, our kindred will help us create Elfin and by creating Elfin we find out kindred. By creating Elfin here, its magic and enchantment vibrates outwardly attracting all those who are attuned to its magic. It is true that this is like being a small radio station in a world filled with huge stations ever broadcasting their wicked spells into the world, but what else is there to do but do our very best? And having done that, in time, here or in another dimension, we know that our enchantments will fulfill themselves and we will find ours’elves in Elfin, among our very own. And toward that day we ever strive.

Did All Elves Come From the Stars?

August 20, 2018
redwizard_Zardoa
“We may have come from the stars ages ago,
but now we are Earth elves and quite happy to be so,
if we can just keep the parasites from consuming it all.”
(The above is a photo of the original acrylic painting
titled “Red Wizard” by Zardoa Silverstar of The Silver Elves)

2_3_7tinystar

Elves often call thems’elves Star Children and various other names that indicate our starry heritage and in the sense that everything that exists on Earth is essentially composed of Stardust, as the astronomer Carl Sagan pointed out, then yes, all elves, all faeries, all men and women and dogs and cats and trees, and everything else came from the stars.

There are large numbers of elfae who relate to the idea of having come to the Earth from Sirius or the Pleiades or some other constellation. There are elfae who will tell you that they came from this or that planet that no one has ever heard of or which only exists in a science fiction or fantasy novel. This attraction to fiction and fantasy is, from an elven point of view, often because when we pass from lifetime to lifetime we forget much of the details of what seemed so very important previously and so we instinctively are attracted to those things that are most like what we are and were. Such memories may not be so much literal as they are symbolic (not that we’re implying that some people don’t have clear past life recall, some clearly do). But quite often what elfae are indicating is that they feel like aliens among the normal folk and that they are certain that they must have come from elsewhere because we just don’t fit in very well here.

At the same time, it is important to remember that we are often pictured as Nature spirits and this is not just something that is put upon us from the outside. It is true that mankind has frequently written of us as spirits of Nature, and even before he learned to write, he related to us as the flitting lights and shadows of the forest often huddling around their fires in superstitious fear. However, it must be pointed out that we also embrace Nature with a fervor that is way beyond the adoration that Men occasionally offer it. We mourn the loss of the trees, we fight to save the whales and other endangered species. We feel one with Nature and its wildness and find our souls and spirits awakened when we are there. We are tree huggers and rock lovers and we adore the Earth and Nature in ways that most of mankind doesn’t seem to be able to understand as yet as they casually exploit and destroy it.

Of course, it may be pointed out that most of us came here from the stars long before mankind began to wake his mind from foggy primate consciousness. We were lurking in the forest and plunging to the depths of the ocean before he even gave those things names. So, our love of Nature and the Earth and the natural, doesn’t negate our starry heritage.

Still, are all elves from the stars? We think not and the reason we think this primarily is because we know some elves who feel they are from the Earth. They were born here, arose with this planet, are Earth elves and proud of it, if a gentle and practical acceptance of this fact may be called proud. Perhaps we should say, they are very comfortable being Earth elves. Have no need or desire to return to the stars. Have no feeling of having come from the stars and are quite happy, well as happy as elves can be in this insane world, to be here.

In a sense, we are all Earth elves now. While we may have come from a different planet on a different star system aeons ago, we were all, as far as these elves can discern, born here on Earth in this lifetime. In that way, we are rather like Americans whose ancestors came from Germany or Japan, or China or Tibet or wherever. We are Italian Americans, or Asian Americans or Native Americans or First Nations Peoples if we migrated here so long ago that we were the first inhabitants other than the creatures of Nature, which includes the elves.

We elves acknowledge our ancestry while embracing our current life and manifestation. And, it is something to note, we elves often were our ancestors. So perhaps it is more like the fact that we used to live in one city or state or country and we migrated to another and now we embrace our new home. We are Earth elves because, ultimately for most of us, we chose to be here.

We know that there are some elven, the Elenari for instance, who believe they were essentially forced to flee to this world. They were chased from their home world and found refuge on this planet. But, this is now home and these elves, at least, are making the most of it. We may have come from the stars ages ago, but now we are Earth elves and quite happy to be so, if we can just keep the parasites from consuming it all.

And for the star enchanters we suggest The Elven Star Oracle: A System of Divination for Star Enchanters :

elfstarbookpic
THE ELVEN STAR ORACLE is an original divinatory system created by the Silver Elves invoking the 88 major constellations and the blessings of the Shining Ones for guiding one through the world and ever closer to the realization of Faerie. It is called “The Elven Star Oracle” because it is based upon the seven pointed Elven Star, sometimes also called the Faery Star, and the areas between the points, overlaid on the dimensional manifestation of Faerie and the realms that are linked to it.

If you enjoyed the article above “Did Elves Come From the Stars” and wish to learn more about the evolution of both elven kin and humanity, we suggest DISCOURSES ON HIGH SORCERY.

sorcerers_discoursesDISCOURSES ON HIGH SORCERY:
More Correspondence Between The Silver Elves
and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters

Discourses on High Sorcery is the third book in a series of a collection of letters that are a continuation of a correspondence started in the two books titled Magic Talks and Sorcerer’s Dialogues between the Silver Elves and two sisters, Arwen and Elanor, who founded the Elf Queen’s Daughters, of which the Silver Elves were a part (these books do not need to be read in order). The Elf Queen’s Daughters were a magical Frasority (fraternity/sorority) who were active in the mid 1970’s and published three letters a week on Elven Culture, Philosophy and Magic that were sent to hundreds of individuals in the U.S. and Europe. While the topics in this series range from Sorcery, Esoteric Buddhism, Elven Culture and Magic, modern culture and much else this third book is entitled Discourses on High Sorcery because the dominate theme is about the Manu, the Great Shnning One, who is the inspiration and energetic guide for the evolution of humanity in this age. Read excerpts from this book here.

Finding Kindred

March 28, 2017

Blessings122

Certainly the question we get asked the most, usually by those who are newly exploring their elven nature, is where to find one’s kindred elfae and how to connect with them. Alas, while we say, and quite accurately, that this is a question most asked by the newly awakened, it is unfortunately a problem that confronts most elves no matter how long they have been awakened or how evolved as elfin they may be. The only difference is that those who have been awakened for a good deal of time have usually found one or two elves that they can associate with regularly, although the difficulty with finding new kindred remains the same.

The fact is that in this day and age, elves are few and far between. Going to faerie and elf fests or pagan festivals, for those can do that and many of us cannot afford to do this or do it often, is a means for connecting with others of our kind; the smaller the festival, in fact, in most cases, the better. And social media is another way to connect, but for these elves most of our relationships have come via destiny and our own elf work, which is to say the creative activity, in our case writing the Magical Elven Love Letters and other of our books and sharing them as much as we are able. Thus our advice to those seeking other elves or fae is to create some form of elven art/writing/music and share it as widely as possible.

Awakening to One’s True Elven Nature

March 20, 2017

Blessings3 copy

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

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

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

“What bird sings upon the Elven Dawn?
The bird of memory long thought gone,
the song of awakening it doth sing,
as the flocks of Elfin do take wing.”
