What is Elven Magic?

June 26, 2017

Elven Enchantment

Magic is generally defined as the application of one’s will to create various effects or achieve one’s intentions. And surely Elven Magic would adhere to this definition as well. However, Elven Magic traditionally, both in reality and fiction, Fairy Tales and Faerie Lore, has associated the elves with the form of magic called enchantment (see our book The Keys to Elfin Enchantment for more on this most elven art).

Enchantment seeks to fulfill its will especially through the enchanting or charming of the Universe and the individuals we desire to influence. It is not so much about compelling them to submit to our will but rather charming them into willingly fulfilling our desired intentions because they find us intriguing and wondrous and feel themselves benefited and fulfilled in aiding us and giving us what we desire. They seek to please us because we have inspired and pleased them, filled them with joy and helped bring meaning and purpose into their lives.

Thus elven enchantment depends a great deal upon the maturity and development of the individual’s spirit, soul and personality. Most forms of magic, while certainly being benefitted by having a mature magician performing the art, don’t actually require the magician to have a good spirit, a decent soul and especially not a pleasing personality. A strong spirit is certainly a great help but no soulfulness or very little is required from most magicians and they can have, as fiction informs us and as history attests, the most noxious, nefarious or downright cantankerous personalities. Elves, however, to truly develop our powers of enchantment need to awaken the divine within ours’elves for there is nothing more attractive to man, beast or spirit than the ecstatic nature of the Divine Magic.

If you have not already listened to the podcast interview with Zardoa Silverstar of the Silver Elves by Marla Brooks on Stirring the Cauldron, you can do so here: In this interview, Zardoa speaks about the difference of enchantment and other forms of magic and the Elven Way.

Is the Elven Way a Religion?

June 25, 2017

The path of the elven is not religious in any way but is rather a spiritual quest of the individual’s effort toward the development of each one’s own s’elf and soul, which is to say one’s connection to the rest of the Universe and the Divine Magic from which all things spring. In other words, the miraculous nature of our existence.

None-the-less, many folks upon discovering that we are elves jump to the conclusion that we must be a cult of some kind. This is particularly so when we have an elven community no matter how large or small.

This assumption is, of course, understandable because quite often when individuals in modern society encounter a group with strong philosophical, spiritual or religious beliefs they are part of a cult. But at the same time, this jumping to the conclusion that we elves, individually or collectively, are part of a cult is really just laziness on their part, an unwillingness to actually discover what we are about. However, that just tells us that they are not elven or not ready to relinquish their enculturated social views enough to truly examine their selves or us and that we simply have to respect. You can’t drag people kicking and screaming into Elfin. The results would be unsatisfactory for them as well as us. All we can really do is understand their reluctance and hesitation. Nurture them as best we may and, in most cases, move farther and further along our own path and leave them to theirs as best they can understand it. If fate or destiny should bring us together again, we will sprinkle another touch of stardust upon them (without them realizing it ever happened) and await the fulfillment of the magic.

Could there be an elven cult?

Cults are almost always centered around a charismatic personality, an inspiring leader and we elves are not immune to such personalities. In fact, being charismatic is nearly a description of elves in general, and we surely find such individuals intriguing. Even when we are introverts, we tend to have a certain charisma about us, although the fact that we are magical folk and radiate elfin/faerie magic often means that people are both attracted and repelled by us, which is to say they find us fascinating, when in fact they are able to see us at all, while being uncertain about us, until they actually get to know us. This is especially true of those who are paranoid and suspicious anyway and prone to superstition.

For our own part, while we enjoy charismatic folks, are in fact fascinated by geniuses of various sorts, and surely would find a powerful elfin figure enchanting, we are seldom fooled for long. If that individual is really all about hir own s’elf and fails to foster the individuality in the kindred, we would soon fade from hir, just as sHe (she/he) in centering everything on hir own s’elf instead of nurturing the elves around hir would become more and more distanced from Elfin and the source of elfin magic.

Some of us, perhaps most of us, may be fooled for a short while, but only a very few will be taken in for a long period and those we expect have some karmic duty to fulfill in doing so, some inner need of their own as well as a need to serve the charismatic other, whom we assume and hope in time will overcome hir own inner emptiness and begin to accomplish the task of encouraging our beloved fae folk, which, after all, is the true purpose of such power.

So, while cults may develop among the elven, they are unlikely to last very long, we are simply too eccentric, unique and diverse as individuals for it to be otherwise.

What will happen to the Elven kin if Humanity destroys itself?

June 3, 2017

Elves know ours’Elves to be essentially spirit beings. We are not elves because of the shape of our bodies but rather our bodies are manifestations of our spirit. If it should happen, and we truly hope it doesn’t for it would be inconvenient for us, that man and some other kind destroy the environment to the point where we are unable to live upon the Earth in humanoid form, we would, of course, find other forms or planetary systems to live within and upon.

The vast majority of unawakened humans would in those circumstances reincarnate in whatever animal, fish or insect forms might be available and begin again the slow evolutionary ascent. Some elfin folk would go to other planets where similar forms might be found and some few, truly evolved elfin would rise to take their place among the Shining Ones.

It is also possible and perhaps in a way likely that some elfin would simply bide their time, living on the astral planes in the sort of nether and ethereal realms of Elfin that many folks assume to be the true Elfland, waiting for circumstances to develop where we may proceed with our efforts to master our ability to manifest upon the material planes of existence. Stepping from this to another timeline, another parallel world.

But our great hope is that enough of humanity will wake up and, even now in what seems to be this late date, transform thems’Elves sufficiently to continue our evolution upon this most wondrous crystal blue planet.

If you are concerned about the topic of the benevolent evolution of our planet Earth toward becoming a sacred planet, 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 Daughters, Beginning with MAGIC TALKS, of which we have already posted a sample of these letters in a previous blog. Then you may also enjoy reading the other three books of correspondence, including Discourses on High Sorcery: More Correspondence Between The Silver Elves and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters

Below is a sample page of Discourses on High Sorcery:

Letters No.14 . . . . Arhats and Mayavirupas
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS AN ARHAT IS OBLIGED TO LEARN, ZARDOA . . . .
. . . . in lieu of the simple fact that he/she does not usually have a physical body, is how to create a mayavirupa. A maya-vi-rupa or in English : an illusory-life-body, represents that conglomerate, seeming living vehicle, made-up of substances gathered from elementals. The actual substance is etheric as opposed to gross physical, astral-flux and choice mental-elementals organized and then re-animated by an adept.

The fact that the “new” arhat is not as yet an adept, is the crux of the matter. He/she normally having been divested of a physical body by “sacrificing their life” to save the life of another, e.g., an imperiled human life and perhaps even the life of a wild-animal. A “new arhat” is never in-position to object to learning how to make a maya-vi-rupa. (Please check-out Werner Hetzog’s, “Bear Man” or “Grizzly Man” as a truly strange, convoluted example of an Arhatic-sacrifice for bruins)
You should realize, Z, that I don’t exactly explain everything to you or Neffie for a pretty good reason. My immediate superiors (for lack of a more suitable expression), definitely feel that candidates for all initiations are diminished greatly by “The Fraudulent Sophist Dialectics” used by rationalizing discourse in general. The “question and answers routine” is part of the problem and is too lame and archaic to become part of the solution. It definitely makes for good pupils but it conversely makes for lousy students.

In other words, if you ask questions and I answer them, that’s alright if your going to be my “charge or chela for life” (heaven forbid Z) but also . . . if I continue to answer questions, I’ll actually be stealing from you! I’d be robbing you of the opportunity for discovery, the only real treasure behind the overly-labored facts and concepts of the modern ideologies and philosophies. I prefer to assume you’re a proper savant (Neffie too) and that you’ll not only glean the facts and the pertinent concepts but that you’ll discover inner-meanings as well as the beauty-functions that oft elude the most erudite scholars of this corrupted day and age.

We won’t, in this regard, be trying to “make a long story short”, since a “short-version” quickly turns into another pathetic attempt to explain the ‘inexplicable’. Dabblers in the occult oft find themselves using terms and expressions that are inexplicable to any other than an eighty-year-old Theosophist with the fading memory of a thrice-brilliant-teenager.

First of all, please allow me to reiterate:
1. An advanced human being
2. An aspirant
3. A probationary disciple
4. An accepted disciple
5. A disciple within the aura of an ashram or the aura of an adept
6. A candidate for initiation. (normally 1st or 2nd degree)
7. An initiate (i.e. normally 3rd degree)
8. An arhat
9. An adept
10. A master
11. A chohan
12. A nirmanaskaya . . .

Now, we can detail our definition along with our empathy for the process. Without true empathy, we’re talking about cynics listening to Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (composed while he was deaf), a consummate rowdy witnessing the birth of an innocent child, a sophisticated urbanite situated alone in a primeval forest, an ass-hole forced by circumstances to give mouth to mouth resuscitation to a 90 year old heart-attack victim (same sex), a know-it-all new-ager hearing the shrieks of a dying seagull and laughing in embarrassment., etc., etc., ad-infinitum.

The freshly endowed arhat is quite rare, since most Arhats have proven themselves as candidates for 4th initiation within several lifetimes. For point of example:
1. A fireman climbing one of the two-towers, during 9 -11, is endowed instantly unto the blessedness of Arhatship but must incarnate once again (to become fully endowed).
2. That is: endowed with an earned right to Arhatship, after making-up-training for initiation 1-2-3 in a unique single-lifetime (usually) for the specific purpose of manifesting as an Arhat.
3. A freshly endowed arhat (being rare) is endowed and vested instantaneously.
4. If one has the pre-requisite “ears” (higher faculty), the “angels or devas” sing – all vested Arhats are said to hear the song-of-songs and it’s sweetness is remembered by them throughout all eternity.
5. Without a Maya-Vi-Rupa an arhat would eventually fall (return again to be more righteously vested).
6. A fall rarely happens, because of intervention on the part of supra-dimensional agents (i.e., adepts) to reveal in a “show-and-tell” (literally) procedure.
7. It has been said that long centuries of discarnate training, in some cases, have always been worth the “trouble” but that most Arhats “train-up” in the equivalent of days or weeks.

We shall, in the next installment, take up the training proper involved in creating a maya-vi-rupa but as but a “taste”:
1. Working knowledge of the elemental ‘lives’ needs to be made profound. In other words, “hands-on”, no opinions, no crude experiments, a paying attention that is far-beyond that of the most erudite men and women; the arhat must begin to know the meaning of “inside-and-out”.
2. The “inside” is learning to ‘order’ the elements required in the making and the manifestation and the “outside” is learning exactly where they fit into an illusory structure of a gland, an appendage, a nose, etc., ad-infinitum.
3. Obedience is not in any way asked, nor is it implicate, it is absolutely demanded using the power of the arhats (plural).
4. Of great importance is the sequential DNA arrangements which will require several angelic or deva-collaborators – this is especially the point where an experienced arhat or adept is necessary.
5. Not a lecture, not a lab, not a graduate-dialogue-session, nor anything as like our incarnate experiential fuss-fairy teaching . . . a merging, a homing-telepathy, utterly non-verbal transfer of “know-how” and with energy-force management.
6. The illusory-life-body is missing an awful lot of what we might imagine a human being would need, just to pass, but all’s well . . . it just has to work for a specific task, at the very first making.
7. Maya-vi-rupas don’t fornicate (not ever as might be required for any significant reason), they aren’t meant to deceive but to complete their task and dissolve (as like in the Cinderella tale), they can do a great deal in terms of the inherent abilities of the particular arhat-adept who wields the maya-vi-rupa’s considerable beauty and function.

THE ATTAINMENT OF ARHATSHIP IS MATCHLESS
love
Arwen

P.S. if we answer questions, we steal away opportunity for discovery on the part of the beloved

(Reply from the Silver Elves to letter #14)

As we’ve told you previously…
Dear Arwen,

… our questions are not meant to be part of a Socratic or Dialectic Process, nor are they rhetorical, they are rather Meta-Questions (our word) intended to inspire thought about the process and not necessarily meant to be answered directed, but rather contemplated regarding the issues raised and the theme upon which you were expounding.

Your last letter on Arhats and Mayavirupas was excellent and masterful. Yes, do continue on that subject writing as much as you will in regard to it. (By the way, we are acquainted with the Grizzly Man film.)

The manifestation of the mayavirupa, or diamond body, in such a way as to appear to physical eyes to be material is surely a great accomplishment and many of the legends of elf and faerie folk, certainly speak of them in this way. In fact, most folks who “believe” in faeries view them from this perspective. Although many seers merely view a subtle body as such, while others might see a more physical seeming form. Bo told us of a faerie he saw that had that subtle appearance and we told him of a menehune we encountered that had that ghostly see-through manifestation. Of course, we sometimes encounter real physical form menehunes on the streets here, but we very much doubt they know or remember who they are anymore.

And there are those who simply refuse to believe in faeries in any other way. They must be a subtle body projection, or a tiny human with wings. They simply can’t see or accept the spiritual nature of reality.

The future of humanity is surely, in part, to develop mayavirupas as a bodily form. These bodies would be much more resilient when mastered, less prone to “disease” as we know it, and certainly longer lived. But this will take some hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions for most folk. And certainly will require numerous changes, not the least of which will be a change of diet, from dense and blood-oriented fare, to more etheric and spiritual nourishment. Just as an individual can receive a quick advancement to probationary Arhatship, wizard hat-ship, or Maia, by selflessly sacrificing hir life for another, certainly one can take the long road of gradual weaning from the culture of blood sacrifice to acceptance of higher nourishment. Is it better to give one’s life for the higher spirit or live one’s life dedicated to it? (A Meta-question, not meant to be answered, except in your own considerations. You can speak to it if you so choose, of course.)

And it would be a great honor for us, certainly, to be your Chelas for life. But alas, as you must know, we are already spoken for. Zardoa wears a sorcerer’s cap given to him (metaphorically) by the Great Mother, Elbereth, which like the cap placed on Monkey by Quan Yin, in the Chinese tales, keeps him from getting up to too much mischief. And Silver Flame, well, she doesn’t seem to need any supervision. The Matreya, Manwe (?) in Tolkien, or one of hir associates, looks in on her from time to time, but mostly she is left to do what she does best, which is lovingly serve and nurture all she encounters.

Do write more on these and other esoteric subjects. You are hitting the mark.
Love,
Zardoa and Silver Flame/Neffie

 

Living in the World of the Unawakened

April 12, 2017

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

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

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

You are welcome to join us on our Silver Elves website and also to read some sample writing from our 38 books on magic and enchantment and the elven way.

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

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

Finding Elf Friends

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

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

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

Finding Kindred

March 28, 2017

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.

Is the Sphere of Netzach Specifically Related to Elves?

March 28, 2017

Is the sphere of Netzach specifically related to Elves?

Netzach on the Qabalahistic Tree of Life is the realm of Victory and particularly of victory over ones’elf, of rising above ones’elf and transcending one’s limitations. Netzach is a sphere of long-suffering, of enduring to completion or therefore patience, and of strength. It is often related to the planet Venus and to enchantment and thus in all these ways it is very elven in nature.

But then one could, just as easily find aspects of elfin and the elvish personality in all the other spheres on the tree of life. That, in fact, is what the tree is for, to view life from its fundamental aspects. (see our book The Elven Tree of Life Eternal.)

If we took some of Tolkien’s elven characters we could easily see Legolas and Tauriel (Peter Jackson’s creative invention in the Hobbit), Thranduil, Elrond and even Galadriel in their warrior form as being associated with Geburah, the sphere of Mars. Or we could talk Elrond and Galadriel in their wisdom aspect as being associated with Binah, or in their occult knowledge aspect as being associated with Hod (Mercury) or Yesod (Moon) or perhaps the path between them. There is no sphere on the Tree, in fact, where one couldn’t view elves in one of our many manifestations and characteristics. Just as elves would live, explore, roam and adventure in all parts of our forest, just as one knows every part of one’s home or neighborhood, so do we, as elven, have a place in every sphere and path of the tree.

The ELven Tree of Life

About Being an Elf in Prison

March 28, 2017

 

The following is an answer to a young elf who wrote us and asked us what we would say to an elf who is in the prison system:

As far as being a prison elf that hardly defines you. We are all prisoners of this world, trapped in matter, and even more trapped in the enculturated belief and habit patterns that the world offers us. Most folks in prison, we expect, as in the outer world, are merely fulfilling role models that have been set before them from ages long past. In many ways, except for having to interact with very unenlightened individuals on a daily basis, your life isn’t entirely unlike that of monks (who also, sometimes, have to deal with the unenlightened at times as well as strict and limiting rules of living). Although, we ours’elves have never been in prison, except to participate as guests in The Game at Marion Federal Penitentiary many ages go, so our understanding of what you encounter and the pressures you are under is extremely limited.

Of course, unlike most who might be of the Buddhist/monkish variety of elves, which is to say, those who feel we should do all we can to evolve beyond the material world, these elves are of the notion that we need to learn to master the world, not through force but through enchantment, and not by working outwardly so much as developing our powers inwardly. Having said that, like all else in life, saying is much easier than doing, also a great deal quicker. We, like you, struggle each day to improve ours’elves and to become better as elven spirits and soulful beings and as far as we can see we are many lifetimes away from achieving even our most humble goals. This is where perseverance becomes essential and endurance a most subtle and great power.

The Book of Elven Magic: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves

July 25, 2014

We wanted to share with you…
Dear Kin
…a little from our Book of Elven Magic, Volume 1, and hope you enjoy reading it and exploring the Elven viewpoint concerning the world of Faerie, Magick and the all that is around us, as well as traditional spiritual and religious myths. This book also covers the tools of Magick and gives magical ceremonies that you may use as a modern elf, magician, and faerie folk.

Fost Tae Lodver (Touch the truth),
The Silver Elves

Exerpt from pages 63-65 of The Book of Elven Magic, Volume 1:

Myths about Elfin Magic:

Myth 1: Magic Requires Belief

Many people think that magic requires belief in order to work. This is not accurate however; magic does not require belief, it only requires action, which is not to underestimate the power of belief, for belief can be quite powerful. However, magic does not depend upon it for its success.

Belief is only important to magic in so far as it convinces the individual that it will indeed work. If, for instance, we tell a primitive person that if they flip the switch on the wall the light will come on, it doesn’t matter if they believe us or not. If they flip the switch, it will come on. However, if they don’t believe that it will come on, they may not bother to flip the switch, thinking instead that we are merely joking or tricking them. So, too, magic only requires action. You need only do the magic and it will work. You do not need to believe, you need only be scientifically minded enough to test this theory and see if indeed, it is accurate in reality.

Myth 2: Technical Exactness is Necessary

Magic doesn’t function exactly like switching on a light, as some people think. While magic does require action and not belief, magic is not, as some suppose, an exact science.

Some people think that in order to do magic you must follow a formula exactly, just as you must be exact when creating a chemical composition. But magic is not so exacting. While it has its scientific aspects, it is also an art and the heart of magic requires intention, will, motivation, and spirit. Magic, like a painting, like a musical composition, depends more on individual style than technical perfection. It is more important that you put your whole heart and soul into your magic, than that you do everything exactly this or that way. Like making love, there is no perfect formula or technique that can replace sensitive and loving interaction. And believe us when we tell you, Elfin Magic is making love.

In magic … spirit, emotional power, and sincerity out weigh technical exactness every time/spell. Originality and creativity in magic, like in movies or music, is more desirable than a slick but lifeless production. On the other hand, if you can combine all these elements, enthusiasm and spirit, originality and creativity, with technical proficiency and smooth performance, you have the best of all possible combinations and the most effective of magics.

Myth 3: Magic Drains Your Life Force?

This particular misconception is especially prevalent in fantasy stories. The magician must always pay the price for having worked his magic both in the short and long run by the sapping and draining of his life energy. This is a wonderfully Christian (and we’ve heard Moslem) conception but has no real validity in elfin magic.

Magic revitalizes. It renews and energizes. If your magic is draining you, if you are sapped of your strength after your ceremonies, then you are going about it incorrectly. It is true that magic is in some ways like working out; one may feel exhausted at first, but soon their energy is replenished and they have grown stronger. But most of all, magic is like making love. One should feel exhilarated by one’s magic.

Magic is another aspect of sexual interaction. Doing your magic should be like flirting with a person you are deeply attracted to; it should turn you on, get you excited, filling you with creative juice and potency.

If you are tired at all after your magic, it should be with the fulfilled and relaxed feeling that comes after a tremendous orgasm: a healing, cleansing feeling that renews you to your very soul.

Elf Magic Mail

June 21, 2014

Elf Magic Mail: Book 1, the original letters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters with Commentary by the Silver Elves These letters…dearest kin… were written by the Elf Queen’s Daughters and contain within them the roots of the Otherkin movement. The following is the introduction of the book Elf Magic Mail that we have compiled of these original letters by the EQD and we have included a sample writing of one letter with the commentary by the Silver Elves.

From the Introduction of Elf Magic Mail:

 

Introduction

In 1974, a pair of sisters—Arwen and Elanor—calling thems’elves the Elf Queen’s Daughters emerged upon the Pagan/Wiccan scene. They wrote fascinating esoteric letters of elven lore and philosophy that, when they really got going, were sent out in a groups of three every week. At their height, they had over 300 addresses around the United States with a few being sent to Spain and France. Within months of their first publication, other kindred joined the sisters and established vortexes around the U.S. where those interested, who had heard the Call, could write to awakened elves. There was also a vortex in France (more on this in Book 2).

Among these vortexes was the Elves of the Southern Woodlands in Carbondale, Illinois established by Zardoa who would, some years later after the sisters ceased writing them, take on the Dharma of creating the elf letters, first in Florida under the name the Sylvan Elves and later in California as the Silver Elves. Silver Flame, his faithful sister-lover companion, soon joined him and they’ve been pursuing the Dharma ever since.

This is Book 1 of a compilation of the original letters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters. Some of these letters appeared in the earliest version of the “Green Egg Magazine”. The sisters knew many folk in the Pagan/Wiccan community including Oberon and Morning Glory Zell Ravenheart who published that magazine, as well as Z Budapest, the author of The Grandmother of Time (our friend Sumi painted the cover art for that book), and Alison Harlow who was a founding member of the Covenant of the Goddess, as well as the founder of the “Vanthi” line of Feri witchcraft, a co-founder with Gwydion Penderrwen (with whom these elves used to correspond, having been introduced by the sisters) of “Nemeton” an early pagan magazine, and a co-founder with Oberon and Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart of the Holy Order of Mother Earth.

Then in mid 1977 the letters suddenly stopped. The sisters withdrew into seclusion and pursued their esoteric studies mostly in private. However, Zardoa stayed in touch with them and they have remained friends and accomplices ever since. Four of our books are actually a personal and magical correspondence between Zardoa and Silver Flame of the Silver Elves and Arwen and Elanor, who had founded the Elf Queen’s Daughters. This correspondence took place in 2011-2012. These books are Magic Talks, Sorcerer’s Dialogues, Discourses on High Sorcery, and Ruminations of Necromancy.

There are certain common features to most of the original letters of the Elf Magic Mail. Besides the intriguing esoteric elven philosophy, there is almost always a photo or graphic, and a glyph that is a combination of the symbols for Venus and Mars often with the Yin/Yang symbol within it; this done in hundreds of variations. There is also frequently the seven-pointed elf star that is today quite often referred to as the faerie star and adorns the covers of a number of books, including Faery Craft by Emily Carding, and is found on websites about elves and faeries all over the globe. This may be the sisters’ most enduring gift to elfin (they spelled it elfan, sometimes elfen) kind. A gift we Silver Elves passed on in our letters and which was taken up by elves and faeries all around the world.

Sample writing from “Elf Magic Mail”, pages 226-230, transcribed from original letters in 1970s:

“Title: The Primordial Egg”

“THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MATTERS, SISTERS …. to hold opinions about, and ten thousand more to express our attitudes about, and more and more to ponder about in the future as well as millions of lost opinions and view-points to recollect and dwell upon relating to our pasts. They weave about us, and we learn to call them ourselves. Astute politicians and the genius-executives that manipulate most of what we once held sacred wield mental power over the people of our disenchanted America that dwarfs the physical power once held by Kings and emotional power held by their courtesans.



It is foolish to believe that you’ve escaped enculturation. It is even more foolish to seriously attempt to do any thing about it. We are programmed sisters, and almost all of us can only re-program ourselves with bizarre “programming” seemingly our own, yet mostly “borrowed” from India or China or even Romantic-Western-America. It appears to the elven sisters, that it’s only the seriousness that really endangers both our security and our freedom. If we can singularly and mutually “face” the utter ridiculousness of our real predicament and almost eternal bondage to the illusions so artfully created for endless distraction, we may begin the long and perilous journey into and out-of fear.



And yet, sisters, we pass through normal and elven America and find so very much opinion about everything imaginable. The warm smiles are what counts, sisters; it is the elven smile that makes for a new day, and the elven chatter as well as the elven letters we all have grown to love are not a real part of our mutual liberation. Only a real human smile has the magic and true enchantment necessary to attack with love (in elven style) the almost ageless human preoccupation with deception. Would that people only attempted to deceive folk other than themselves. 



We find sisters everywhere that would learn the magic. They find their elven natures to be more than just “surface” qualities; they feel they’ve found something recognizable in their real kinship with the elven sisterhood. We pray and call upon She Who Dreams to guide them past all of this and into and out-of what men call real. There is no substitute for self-knowledge. So very few spend the time to find out who they really are. The unseen realms of mind and reality are so very devastating to those who know so little about themselves, their motives, their sexual needs and desires, the “nitty-gritty” stuff that wizzards [sic] expose to the light of day on only one or two days in a single year. And Alchemy, and astrology, and all the “heavy “ stuff, what is it all about, beloved .. what is it all about?

Let us firstly make arrangements for our mutual evolution and growth from a disenchanted folk alienated primarily from ourselves .. into a real people who not only know themselves but know themselves relative to their real environment. 
It’s the Space that Counts”

Picture of actually letter from which the above is transcribed, on page 227:

PrimordialEgg

COMMENTARY BY THE SILVER ELVES on page 230:



”Here the sisters make very clear that our true elven magic is not ceremonial magic or the waving of wands, nor even attempts to manipulate the world but the magic of a simple smile, a bit of kindness in a world that very much needs it. This goes along with Tolkien’s idea, as expressed in his article On Fairy-Stories found in Tree and Leaf, that faerie magic is not the labored magic of worldly magicians. While this magic may be less demonstrative and flashy than the magic of movies and books, it is far more powerful really for all its subtlety and far more enduring. It helped change our lives and endures still in the hearts of these elves.”

The Voice of Faerie: Making Any Tarot Deck Into an Elven Oracle

September 16, 2013

We are very excited…

Dearest Kin … to have recently published our second book on tarot. Our first book, “The Elven Book of Powers” is a guide to using the tarot of magical visualization and wish fulfillment, with evocations, invocations and rhyming spells for each card in a traditional tarot deck. Our newest book, “The Voice of Faerie”, is a reference guide for reading the tarot. It is a Living Book (to be consulted over and over in time) designed to be used in concert with any tarot deck so that the meaning of the cards can be easily accessible to anyone interested in communicating with the elven and faerie spirits of other realms and dimensions.

0. Awakening: Something Magic This Way Comes, Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long

TAROT: THE MAGICIAN



Something Magic This Way Comes



Something Magic This Way Comes is a card of blessing and good luck. An unexpected turn of affairs brings new magic into your life, refreshing and revitalizing you. Other signs will confirm this soon.
Greet this change of circumstances with optimism and enthusiasm, thus making the most of it. Something Magic This Way Comes is a confirmation of the power of the good and the beautiful to renew itself. It is a response from Faerie to the magic you have already done and that is now coming to fruition.
 However, Something Magic This Way Comes also implies that we must wait for the magic to arrive. It is coming but it hasn’t come yet. It’s on its way but still we must await it with patience as well as expectation.
 This card holds the promise therefore of good to come, of the triumph of good over evil, of the return of health and healing after illness, or the beginnings of understanding after estrangement and clarity in the wake of confusion. 
The magic time is coming. Have faith; trust in its arrival. Know that the Dawn will disperse the darkness, that Spring will chase away winter’s chill, bringing new growth and renewal.

 

Visualization: 

The feeling has been growing for weeks now and each day it gets stronger. Something is about to happen. Something special. Something Magic This Way Comes.
You tingle inside. Power surges through your body. You feel like you can hardly contain it and you are alive with expectancy. Something comes. Something magic. You can feel it in the wind. The trees whisper about it. The birds call to you, telling you it’s coming. “It’s coming. It’s coming,” they say.
 Your power is calling you. It’s as though someone suddenly plugged you into a wall socket. The electricity streams through your body. You’re alive, alive, alive with the magic, with the power, with the possibility.

 

The Magic:

 Stop and relax a moment. Where is the magic? Is the power building or waning? Can you feel it? Don’t try to force anything. Just feel the energy. Note where it is. Check it daily. Make yours’elf ready.

 


(An Alternate Interpretation)
 Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long

 

Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long tells us that sooner or later the Law of Karma is fulfilled in its exacting fashion. Those that have stood against the light fall and the good prevails once again. Each receives hir (his/her) just and exact due as hir magic is fulfilled. 
This is the time of struggle, however. Evil will not give up on its own volition. We must act against it with all our power bringing the weight of our Elven magic to bear, but a direct confrontation with evil is to be avoided if at all possible because we wind up entangled in conflict and destruction. We, and many innocent bystanders, are often harmed by this conflict. Direct confrontation, therefore, is a last resort. The best defense again evil is to make energetic progress toward the realization of our positive dreams and visions. By creating our eald, our bit of Faerie, in the world, by putting all our energy toward creating a better world, we undermine the power of the Wicked, which depends upon decay and dissatisfaction to gain its ends. It is parasitic by nature and 
cannot endure on its own. Creating our own realm of Elfin is like turning on a light in a dark room.
By pursuing fairness and justice for all, we remove the sources of discontent upon which evil thrives and that it ever endeavors to create in order to bring imbalance to the world.
However, sometimes evil must be faced directly and so this is a card of choice. If you receive this card you must decide your best course in dealing with wickedness in this situation. Do you act toward the good, act against evil or wait for things to change on their own?


Something Magic This Way Comes and Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long are paired, although, one follows the other. This indicates that after obtaining magical power and influence, one is then faced with a choice concerning what to do with that power. What will you do with the power you gain?


Visualization: 

It has become clear to you that there are those who are deliberately seeking to enslave the world for their own profit and gratification. It is also evident to you, having the magical power that you do, that you have a responsibility to use your powers to remove these people from the positions of power from whence they carry out their wicked aims.
The question is: what’s the best way to do this? Should you use your powers to create good and ignore those others, trusting in time and karma to deal with them? Or do you think that the situation demands that you take measures to bind their evil and obstruct their path? Can you do both?


The Magic: 
Hold a magic circle and do a binding. Resist wickedness in your own life and you will have the power to bind it on the nether planes.
