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

and also sold here on Amazon UK

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How do we Silver Elves Deal with People Who Think We Are Roleplaying Being Elves?

March 1, 2019
zardoaears-1
“If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.”

      How do we Silver Elves deal with people who think we are roleplaying being elves?  We really don’t mind. Generally, we let people think what they want about us. It’s usually easier to let them have their preconceptions, prejudices and unwarranted assumptions than it is to attempt to enlighten them about things that really won’t make much difference in their lives, except for the fact that they would be more enlightened and more aware of the truth of our nature and reality in general. But that can be frightening for them. And we elves really aren’t here to scare people, at least, most of the time, we’re not.

     And in fact, elves in particular and perhaps faeries and others also, often do enjoy ‘roleplaying’ as elves or others even though we are elves. It is certainly possible that elves may role play other beings as well. In fact, in our experience most folks that do role play and cosplay and such, usually have at least a bit of fae in their souls.

     We have found that orcs, goblins and such, and especially ‘real men,’ tend to look down upon those who do cosplay or roleplay. They take themselves far too seriously for that and scorn others who do not. Which is not to say that there aren’t those who might cosplay orcs or goblins, or that there aren’t any orcs, goblins, grimlins who do cosplay, although grimlins would surely be the least likely to do so. ‘Serious’ doesn’t begin to describe the way these grimlins take themselves. Fanatical barely scratches the surface.

     And surely elves might cosplay orcs or goblins. When elves saw the goblins in the Mines of Moria in the Fellowship of the Ring movie, we couldn’t help think what lovely creatures they actually were, if it was not for the fact that they were so hostile and under the sway of Wicked Magic. We thought, as we elves often do, if they were just nice folks we could be quite good friends really. It is only their hostility to us and their ignorant, mindless and persistent destruction of the environment that keeps us from embracing them.

     Traditionally, it is said that we elven folk and our fae cousins are indeed rather playful folk and that is surely true in its way. Like most things about the elven, however, it is a provisional truth, a partial truth and contains its opposite as well, because we can be quite serious folk and we are surely seriously intent upon spreading our magic into the world and manifesting Elfin upon the Earth once more for the betterment of all. And not a moment too soon either.

     There might be those among us who therefore are dismayed that so many folks ridicule our elfin being, individuals who view us and really think they are quite right in their scorn, without a moment’s thought about how rude and ignorant they are being. The idea that there may actually be elves in the world or that we might really be elves, is something that they simply cannot allow themselves to contemplate. The truth is that they are afraid, as so many folks are, of social ridicule and rejection and while we elves are not fond of those things either, we prefer the freedom to be ours’elves to the limitation of social conformity.

     At the same time, we know from long experience that ridicule is just part of the behavioral propensity at this point of the evolutionary stage of many humans. They sometimes kill people for being different than they, for being a gay or transsexual person or a different race, for thinking differently than they do, believing differently, even for looking differently. So, when we find individuals who simply are unable to accept that the identity we have chosen to manifest within in this world is one that they don’t believe even exists, we simply leave ‘sleeping dogs lie,’ as the saying goes. Or as we elves might say, don’t stir rabid dogs.

     If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.

     We elves love cosplay, although we don’t tend to mimic characters so much as create our own. In that way we are rather like Tauriel who wasn’t written about in The Hobbit but implied. Our characters are implied by the nature of Elfin.

“We really shouldn’t be surprised when we tell normal people we are elves and they don’t believe us. After all, we’ve spent ages casting a glamor upon them to convince them we don’t exist. Their disbelief is really just an affirmation of the power of our enchantments.” —from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves

We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of another of our original Elven divination systems that we have created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners:
STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS,CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future.

This oracle uses thesticksandstonescover Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame.

You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

This is not the Norse Runes but our own original elven rune divination system. It consists of 40 runes.

Elven Geomancy: An Ancient Oracle of the Elven Peoples
for Divination and Spell Casting
at:
http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAgeomancy.html

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

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.

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

“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.” —Excerpt from page 26 of Through The Mists of Faerie by The Silver Elves.

What Effect Do Our Magical Body Parts (Elf Ears, Wings, Tails, Scales etc.) In Etheric Form Have Upon Elves and Otherkin?

December 17, 2018
Zarda_dragn_Naritatemple

“Even when the wings are just etheric, they still affect our incarnate being, for from an elven point of view the material world is shaped upon the ethereal and imaginal worlds and not the other way around as most people seem to presume…. Elf ears (pointed) for instance may be a bit atrophied and in need of being exercised by hearing intuitively, so imagine your Elven spirit body and then practice listening from that perspective on the shamanic and psychic plane.”

2_3_7tinystar

It is a simple fact that faerie love their wings in the same way that we elves love our pointed ears. And even though time and the circumstances of fate have served to remove the points from most of our elven ears and apparently there aren’t any humanoid faeries with physical wings, we still love to put on prosthetic ears and faeries love to wear their wings around whenever they are around their kindred and can feel free and safe in doing so. This wearing of wings and pointed ears is a recognition of our love of our ancient peoples and our attachment to the lore that surrounds them. Whether there were even humanoid beings with elf ears and faerie wings doesn’t entirely matter to us. What matters is, elf ears and fairy wings are cool, and we love them. While we might not have physical elf ears or wings anymore they still exist for us in our hearts, our imaginations therefore upon our bodies of light.

For the most part, in our experience, no two wings are exactly alike, just as snowflakes and fingerprints are each unique, and Otherkin wings come in a variety of thin/thickness, curves, range and which all effect the lift of the wing. One common problem that our winged otherkin brothers and sisters speak of (the angels, faeries, vampires, dragons, etc.) are the effects on one’s health when incarnated in a human body and while still having etheric wings, they no longer have physical wings to use for movement.

One of our kindred, Reinero De Valois, proposes that it is possible that this lack of use of the wings may cause or be caused by blocks of energy in the winged area that may even cause back problems and other ailments. A number of fae have verified his theory as he has helped them to unblock the energy, and one such fae sister did so adding that she feels it may be the lack of use of the wing when in human form that makes her walking difficult and even painful, effecting her lower back and legs. We see this as completely plausible from an aerodynamic view of wing lift and drag, in that a somewhat atrophied wing may have an incredibly burdensome drag on the human body. As we have said, the wing section characteristics, i.e. the shape and diameter of the wing area, effects the wing lift or ability to give assistance in motion to the body as does the ability to use devices like flaps to assist the lift. Even when the wings are just etheric, they still affect our incarnate being, for from an elven point of view the material world is shaped upon the ethereal and imaginal worlds and not the other way around as most people seem to presume.

But we feel too that this ‘disability’ can be corrected with proper visualizations and exercises. And so, we suggest that if any of our faerie kindred are having back or walking problems, they try some wing exercises to strengthen the use of the etheric wings and increase the lift ability. We are not suggesting that this will help you actually fly (although we leave that possible idea up to your imagination) but it may help your wings to assist you in ground motion, like walking and running and even jumping and it may help lessen the burden (and thus pain) on your body of carrying etheric wings around that have inadequate lift, even in their own realms, due to lack of use.

We suggest some visualization in which one first (in a standing position) exercises the full spread of their wings and full range of motion for 3 to 6 cycles (do this in pairs so if you have more than one pair of wings then you may wish to repeat the exercise for each pair separately). Once one has mastered this in a standing position, the next step is to try walking slowly at the same time, and eventually walking or running at a faster pace and a longer period of time (in time you may be able to use more than one set of wings at a time if your magical form has and uses multiple wings for flight). Take it very slowly at first and only do what feels right to you, using your own intuition to guide your exercise. You may also wish to visualize some etheric flaps at the bottom of your wings to help in the gliding once you have begun walking and running. And it should have a positive effect upon your posture overall.

There is a larger question subject here and that is “What effect are our magical body parts (wings, elf ears, tails, scales, etc.) in etheric form having upon our physical bodies and how can we heal and improve our bodies by increasing the use of these magical parts?” Elf ears (pointed) for instance may be a bit atrophied and in need of being exercised by hearing intuitively, so imagine your Elven spirit body and then practice listening from that perspective on the shamanic and psychic plane. We Silver Elves have long thought that is most likely what our elf ears are really for—increasing our psychic perception and our non-verbal connection to each other, past, present, and future.

While some folks might think this crazy, none-the-less, when someone loses an arm or a leg through injury or accident, they often still feel that phantom limb (or wing or elf ear) as though it were still there. It may still itch or ache and the solution they have found is to have a mirror of one’s other limb so one can see the phantom limb and scratch it. This is really the same principal at work here in understanding the astral limbs or other etheric body parts.

And it should be noted that while the lack of use of our etheric wings or ears may burden our physical bodies, this neglect can also have an effect upon our psychological well-being. When faeries get depressed perhaps they just need to get their etheric wings going and fly in spirit. When we elves, as so often happens, feel so very alone in the world, searching ever for our others, perhaps we might consider listening to them with our etheric elf ears. For if you listen carefully, you can hear them in the distance drawing ever closer, calling to us in their hearts as we are calling to them.

So, dear Sisters and Brothers, may your wings be fluttering, your ears be attuning, your tails be waving, and your scales be shining!

And what about those faerie wings? Here is an excerpt from Caressed By An Elven Breeze: The Poems of Zardoa Silverstar of an enchanting poem about a faerie who had no wings:

The Faerie Who Had No Wings . . . . . .

There once was a faery that couldn’t fly

He was born without wings

But no one knew why.

They took him to doctors

And wise women, too

But no one knew why

Or what to do.

They said, “It’s a shame,

That’s certainly so.”

But when asked the cause

They said, “We don’t know”.

And when asked the cure

They said much the same

Despite their titles, diplomas or fame.

So this faery named ‘Wingless’

By all of his friends

Grew up on the ground

While they did ascend

To the tops of the trees

To the bottoms of the clouds

He felt quite ashamed

While they felt most proud.

But his mother did love him

As good mothers do

She said you’re without wings

Oh yes this is true

But that’s not your fault

It’s nothing you’ve done

And though you can’t fly

You are still my son.

And you know among faeries

You are quite unique

You’re special, my son

But he felt like a freak.

And he thought to himself

What’s the matter with me

Why don’t I have wings,

Like a normal faery?

Why can I not soar

Why can I not fly

And look down on the Earth

From way up high

Like everyone else

Like all faery kind

Why is it me

Who’s left behind.

And as he did grow

And was given chores

They were close to the ground

Or near to the shores

He tended the flowers

And the roots of the trees

And the branches low hanging

That swept in the breeze.

And sometimes he’d climb

As high as he could

And watch all his friends

Sail like birds though the wood

And then he would wish

And then he would sigh

And gaze with great longing

Across the sky.

But always in time

He’d have to climb down

And have his feet

Once again on the ground

And though he’d enjoyed it

He’d still have to frown

For he felt like a fool

He felt like a clown.

For his friends seemed so graceful

As they skimmed cross the sky

And he felt so clumsy

As he climbed way up high

His mother would tell him

It’s really okay

But strangely it never

To him felt that way.

But he worked very hard

And he did his best

Completed his chores

Like all the rest

Was good at his job

In every detail

Bringing love to the flowers

Everyday without fail.

And as the days came and went

And nights passed him by

He came to accept

He never would fly

He gave up trying

And wishing, too

He came to accept

There was naught he could do.

He was born without wings

And that was his fate

Though he hoped as a teenager

That they’d grow in late

But that was a wish

That never came true

And once again

There was naught he could do.

So day by day

And night by night

He did all he could

To be happy and bright

And accept his life

As it came to be

Tending to flowers

And loving the trees.

For while it was true

That his friends could all fly

What did they do

Up in the sky

But tend to flowers

And love all the trees

And laugh in the sun

And sway in the breeze.

They did all that he did

And he did the same

Except for flying

There was naught one could name

That he couldn’t do

As good as another

He was a faerie true

Like any other.

And so he accepted his fate

As he grew up at last

His life was his own

The dice they were cast

And now the only thing

Left him to do

Was accept himself

As he was, he knew.

And so off he went

Into the deep woods

To think on his life

And all the great goods

That had come to him

In the course of his days

And the mysteries of Nature

And all of her ways.

For our lives each have meaning

Or maybe they don’t

You have to decide

Or maybe you won’t

Things are as they are

As they’re meant to be

But still we can change

If our minds are free.

On this our dear faerie

Without wings he did think

As he strolled through the trees

And the dew he did drink

And thankful was he

For his life as it was

Because it was his

And perhaps just because.

So walking about

He happened to spy

A lovely young elf

With a twinkle in her eye

He said, “Greetings, elf kin,

How goes it today?

Do you live here about

Or pass on your way?” …………

What Do Elves Think of Psychiatry, Psychology and Modern Therapists?

August 2, 2018
psychebookinsidegrensmall
“Oddly, the inner self is not generally viewed as real in this mundane world, similar to and perhaps even more profoundly than how the world of mankind has denied the existence of elves. The importance of developing the self and even its existence at all, is absent in most modern forms of psychological therapies. And it is certain that until mankind views their own inner Nature or self as real and important to nurture, they will not only feel disharmony and psychological discomforts but also will continue to deny the existence of elves who experience both inner s’elf and outer Nature as one. We elves understand that people can be healed of psychological discomforts by viewing the inner self as real. And then once the self is fully nourished and developed, the person will feel balanced and instinctually make healthy decisions.”

First, let us say, we are psychologists, if you mean this word in its literal sense, as those who study the psyché. Shamanism, and really sorcery, are forms of and ancestors to modern psychology. In fact, magic and the magical arts are the sources of nearly every study in the world including medicine, botany, theatre, religion and much else (see Frazer The Golden Bough). In fact, these elves have Masters degrees in Psychology, so when we say we are students of psychology and of the psyché, we are being quite literal about that. The mind and the feelings, which are greatly connected to the unconscious, are fascinating to us.

There is an idea in popular magical lore that if you know a person’s true name you will have power over them. What this really means from an elven point of view, is that if you truly understood a person, understood them from their own point of view, then you would have the power to influence them (see I Ching #61 Inner Truth) and thus affect their thoughts and behavior. This is also the common idea of psyching someone out. Although, for the elves, such influence is used generally to move individuals toward greater inner and outer harmony.

Professional psychologists and psychiatrists are a different matter. Unfortunately, these days, where nearly everything including one’s attitude and point of view are seen as a result of the biochemistry of the brain and body, psychiatrists (we were told by an elf brother who is one and works for a major hospital chain) have become mostly script writers for pharmaceuticals. Sort of diagnostic pharmacists. Of course, this is the Kali Yuga, and thus it is only natural at this juncture in the evolutionary development of humanity that the world is viewed as being a primarily material event.

Even those therapists who can’t (because they don’t have a doctorate in medicine) or don’t prescribe drugs, are generally only partially, or even marginally effective. Years ago, there was a research study that had two groups, a test group of people in therapy and a control group of people who didn’t go to therapy. They were studied over a period of time and it was discovered at the end of this period that of those who were in therapy about a third got better, a third got worse and a third stayed the same. Interestingly, in the control group of those who didn’t go to therapy, the results were exactly the same, a third got better, a third worse, and a third stayed the same. One might think that the researchers would conclude, as many people do in modern society, that psychology and therapy is essentially useless. But instead they concluded that therapy was only as good as the therapist. Which probably could also be said of auto-mechanics, doctors, dentists and even actors and directors.

The great minds of psychology and psychiatry, such as Freud, Jung, Maslow, Rogers, etc. were very effective as therapists, because they put their heart and their souls (as well as their minds) into their relationships with their patients. However, many therapists today are simply following a formula that they’ve been taught for every patient and this is barely effective. And the fact is (and these elves know it from personal interaction, for we know a number of psychologists), they can be just as screwed up in their personal life as those they seek to treat. But then, you don’t expect your dentist to do his own root canals, so that is not totally unreasonable, although there is some expectation that psychologists should be somewhat saner than most folks. So, while these elves respect modern psychology and psychologists, we don’t think that it is generally a very effective method at this point for helping people. But then, in its modern manifestation as a science, psychology is a very young discipline and needs time to evolve.

But the main thing that we question about many modern forms of therapy, is the hierarchical aspect of the therapist-patient relationship. In our experience, it is a personal and caring relationship that is most potent in enabling people to change. And most often, it is in our personal lives of love and romance that most encourages people to strive to really improve thems’elves. Carl Rogers, in the 1940s and 50s, was certainly on the right track with his Person-Centered Therapy that was an empathic and non-authoritative approach, empowering and motivating people in the therapeutic process. And of course we are not saying that all forms of modern psychological therapies are without this important aspect of the caring relationship, but those that mostly concentrate on dispensing pharmaceuticals and offer little else, certainly lack this important ingredient of care that is so necessary for any real change in the person’s condition.

Dr. Timothy Leary, a great modern psychologist, was of the opinion (shared by ancient shamans) that people were neurologically templated to believe and behave in certain ways and simply unable to make any real change unless the synaptic links in their brain were released and re-wired, so to speak, using a variety of shamanic techniques and technologies. This aligns itself with the same biochemical theories mentioned earlier, only the pharmaceutics prescribed would be different and there are other life changing and sometimes life-threatening events that can also produce the same effect. Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) is essentially a result of such rewiring of the brain.

But there are other techniques, such as one might use on a Vision Quest, like drumming, dancing, chanting and so forth that can also produce this effect of rewiring the brain in a more positive fashion. Often this is what is happening when one encounters a highly spiritual person and experiences an epiphany or revelation. Frequently, when one awakens to their elfin, faerie or otherkin s’elf, it is due to just such an experience. It is a profound spiritual revelation.

Thus, these elves don’t do traditional therapy with people, although Silver Flame has held a license to do so and Zardoa could practice as a psychologist in some states. What we do is relate to our kindred as best we are able and on occasion we offer the Somatic Reflection Process to help unite body and mind (see book What’s Behind Your Belly Button? by Love and Sterling).

We elves see the inner self as real and attempt to assist our kindred to nourish their own inner being and instinctive needs with both caring and acceptance balanced by freedom of expression. Oddly, the inner self is not generally viewed as real in this mundane world, similar to and perhaps even more profoundly than how the world of mankind has denied the existence of elves. The importance of developing the self and even its existence at all, is absent in most modern forms of psychological therapies. And it is certain that until mankind views their own inner Nature or self as real and important to nurture, they will not only feel disharmony and psychological discomforts but also will continue to deny the existence of elves who experience both inner s’elf and outer Nature as one.

We elves understand that people can be healed of psychological discomforts by viewing the inner self as real. And then once the self is fully nourished and developed, the person will feel balanced and instinctually make healthy decisions. Our hope is to help, guide and nurture our elfae kin as we best are able to do so, and to be with them as their loving and affectionate kindred in a world that often seems as though it was designed to drive us all crazy.

elvenPsychBookcoverbigELVEN PSYCHOLOGY: Understanding the Elfin Psyche
and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders

ELVEN PSYCHOLOGY is written from a unique elven perspective about the present day human condition, which includes an exploration of the psyché of both normal folk and elfae. We elves are elven by spirit, so our entrance into humanity is the addition of a new spiritual race, not a new physical race, and elves have been born in these modern times into all physical races, as well as most cultures and religions throughout the world. In fact, there are many who are following esoteric Ancient Wisdom Traditions, as well as some Tolkienists, who through the process of benevolent evolution, see ‘elf as the new normal’ or majority of humankind in the not so distant future. So, it is important to update many areas of academia that explore, express, and explain human life; psychology being one of these.

Thus this book expands the realms of modern psychology, which has never before included the elves and otherkin population as being real. If one says that they are an elf, most psychologists today will still hold you in suspect of having a delusionary disorder and try to evaluate you further. We explain in Elven Psychology why from a standard psychological point of view that believing you are an elf does not in itself constitute a disorder even in traditional psychology, and then we go much further and explore the disorders and psychological struggles that we observe in our modern society in both normal folk and elves/otherkin, along with the spiritual purposes of disorders and new perspectives for healing.

“Elves don’t make a strong distinction between what is real and what is artificial, for everything is really something even if it is not really what it pretends to be. Rather, we look at the world and distinguish between those things are an organic whole and therefore vibrating life and those things that are composites of other energies. The first tends to radiate energy, the second is inclined to absorb it. The first, a star, the second, a black hole. And yet, when a black whole is full, it bursts again into stardom, and so the Universe goes ’round, like the dance of the fae around the fires of creation.”

How Do Elves Form Families?

July 2, 2018
silver_ZGarden
“. . . .we have elven grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, cousins and every other variation of familial relationship. You could describe this as an extended family, and it truly is, but it would be more accurate really to call it our spiritual family, our family of spirit, our elven, elfae family of related kin and kindred. There is no need to be alone in this world, for our spiritual kin are all around us and our elven family may flower with just the opening of one’s heart.”

In a certain sense, we do it the usual way. However, we elves are generally more aware and more attuned with the fact that we are beings of spirit and energy than many other folks and thus we don’t raise our children to be elves but to be their own s’elves however they wish to interpret that for thems’elves in the best, most vibrant and successful fashion they can be. In other words, we don’t offer them dogma and doctrine, we simply love and nurture them, their aspirations and goals, and encourage them to be the best they can be.

Most children in the world embrace whatever their parents raise them to be. In some cases, as in the reality of genetic distinctive racial types, they don’t always have a good deal of choice in that. However, most of what people are, comes from being born in a particular country or area and thus are raised with a particular political view, the religion or lack thereof of the parents and so on.

So we have it that Jewish people tend to raise their children to be Jewish, culturally if not religiously. Moslems raise their children to be Moslem; Christians to be Christian and so forth and every country raises their children to be patriotic citizens and to think that their culture, nation and people are the best in the world. Thus, we take on the religions and politics of our parents, although, there are those, usually just a few, who stray into other realms, depending upon their own evolutionary development and how liberal or fanatical their parents actually were. And with these various inherited enculturations, the children also usually get their parent’s—thus their country’s or religion’s—prejudices, slights, schemes for revenge for wrongs done in the past by some competing group and everything else that has led over the ages to myriad sectarian, religious, political, racial and cultural hate and conflict.

But, as we say, we elves are different in that way. Our genetic children are raised to make decisions about politics and religion and other things according to their own insights about life. Of course, we always hope they will see things rather like we do, but we support them in whatever path they do choose, and we trust that whatever they choose is the best path for them. We will always love and nurture them, whichever way they go, and always encourage them to do what is right and fair for everyone. We are not so interested in them calling thems’elves elves as in being the Good Folk that we know them to be.

And as elves, we also adopt various kin who come to us. Actually, it is more like we adopt each other. Thus we have elven grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, cousins and every other variation of familial relationship. You could describe this as an extended family, and it truly is, but it would be more accurate really to call it our spiritual family, our family of spirit, our elven, elfae family of related kin and kindred. There is no need to be alone in this world, for our spiritual kin are all around us and our elven family may flower with just the opening of one’s heart.

We are aware that our genetic relationships, as much as we love and value our children are transitory. This is to say that they are our children now, but after we pass from this incarnation, they may very well become our parents or grandparents in another one. In fact, our daughter reminds us so much of one of our own grandmothers, is so much like her in so many ways, that we are fairly certain it is her reborn.

But the same is true of our elven kindred really. They may be coming to us for kinship and guidance in this life but in the next one we will probably be seeking them out to help remind us of the Way. This life is a spiral, after all, and we are rising together toward the light of Elfin, each of us helping our others who in time help us.

Why Are So Many Modern Elves So Into Fashion?

May 12, 2018

ZandSilverF_elf costumes
“. . . we put on pointed ears and dress in traditional elfin garb and embrace our magical nature whenever we can, doing whatever we can, no matter how superficial it may seem to link us to the realm and folk that we love and of whom we are so beloved. Wearing elven fashion, dressing in elven raiment is an act of magic. It is an announcement of one’s true nature, one’s connection to Elfin and our kindred elves, and every time one does so it radiates a bit of Elfin into the world.”

Fashion is a particularly faerie thing, usually. Faeries love fashion but elves do also and particularly in this age where our very existence is often denied and in which others feel it their right to ridicule our cultural heritage, never even bothering to ask what we mean when we say we are elves, or making any inquiry at all. We elfin are inclined to cling to those things that declare our elvenness to the world. Thus we put on pointed ears and dress in traditional elfin garb and embrace our magical nature whenever we can, doing whatever we can, no matter how superficial it may seem to link us to the realm and folk that we love and of whom we are so beloved. Wearing elven fashion, dressing in elven raiment is an act of magic. It is an announcement of one’s true nature, one’s connection to Elfin and our kindred elves, and every time one does so it radiates a bit of Elfin into the world.

In many ways, it is not unlike dressing up for Halloween in a fashion that one loves but which would not be deemed appropriate the rest of the year. So many elfin go to faerie faires, ren faires and other gatherings and put on their elven raiment for those events that simply would be socially unacceptable for work or even for just walking around in the world. We love being elves, but most of us are not daring enough as yet, to prance or glide about presenting our true s’elves on a constant basis and the simple fact is that we might lose our jobs if we did so or just face unwanted hostility from miscellaneous folks in the world who believe it is their duty to be the fashion police and keep everyone in line. And in some areas, where the orcs, goblins and grimlins abide, to beat them in line.

Some folk, perhaps many elfae folk, are simply not ready to fully accept their elven nature and thus they dress up and pretend to be what they really are, or pretend to pretend, and approach the borders of Living Elfin as close as they may but they dare not step over into that realm where they’d say, “Yes, I am an elf (or faerie or pixie or whatever),” for fear of others reactions. They still hunger for social approval and acceptance and until they value freedom and mastery of their own responses in the world over the opinions of others, they will never quite pass the threshold (the forest’s edge) into Elfin. But whenever we wander among them, we do our best to nurture them and they have our love and sympathy for their predicament.

We who have fully embraced our elven nature, still must often move with caution through the world at times. Sometimes camouflaging our s’elves and our natures, most times wearing raiment that is suggestive of the elven but isn’t quite smacking it in their faces the way pixies often do.

So why are so many elves into fashion? Because we love being fair. We love being the fair folk, the faire folk, the faerie folk and it is our way of saying to those who are open to it, we are elves. Most can’t see it. In fact, most refuse to see the truth. They see what they wish to see ever limited by their stereotypes and preconceptions, but for those who are ready, something stirs in them and they feel the Call of Elfin, just as we did and think, I may just step a bit closer. And we ever await them.

Can We Become Elves?

April 14, 2018

29541507_2147069358642999_9024813548495673657_n
“. . . . all of us who wish to be Elven, no matter what
our genetic lineage, are truly Elven as spirits
and as we lead our lives as elves we become
ever more Elven through the process of shedding
the thought-forms of the more normal cultures around us.”

In most folks’ minds, one is either an elf or fae or not. One is born that way, descended from the Ancient Scythian or other fae folk and that is that. That is certainly the way Nicholas De Vere viewed things in his book The Dragon Legacy. However, that is not the way these elves look at things and even De Vere acknowledged that those who had at least some elven blood, which according to him was a great deal of humanity, weren’t necessarily an elf unless theirs was particularly pure elven blood. And again, we disagree not only because this rather racist and snobbish point of view offends our elven sensibilities but mostly because it is not necessarily true.

We elfae folk are magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, shamans, wizards, witches and magic wielders of various sorts and we are elves because we wish to be elves. We live our lives as elves and thus our magic makes us so. Ours, as we said many times, is a more magical and energetic view of elfin being rather than a materialistic oriented point of view, but then we are evolving toward more spiritual, by which we mean spirited and energetic, lives.

And it is also the case that those who have supposedly pure elven blood may not live the elven life at all or follow The Elven Way, while others who seemingly have no elven blood genetically are very attracted to being elves and strive to live their lives as the elves they instinctively feel thems’elves to be. While those who consider thems’elves to be ‘pure’ elves may say ‘tough luck’ you are not one of us, we Silver Elves say, the more the merrier.

This is due in part because we know that being elves we have somewhat mastered the art of being born into whatever bodies or families or genetic line that is convenient for a particular incarnation. We modern incarnated elves are not usually interested in being born into our ancient elven bloodline as we are in picking those bodies and circumstances that will help us develop as spirits and assist us to evolve.

Still, there is a soulful memory that is the memory of our spirit within our being that draws us to the Elven Lifestyle. So if you ask us, can someone become an elf? We say, we are all becoming elves. Or really all of us who wish to be elven, no matter what our genetic lineage, are truly elven as spirits and as we lead our lives as elves we become ever more elven through the process of shedding the thought-forms of the more normal cultures around us.

One might wonder then, why would we do such a thing. Why be born in other bodies from other genetic lines at all? And the answer is essentially twofold. One of which is that having been persecuted and oppressed as elves and fae, we found there were less and less elven bodies to be born into and so we decided to be born as the children of our oppressors so we could transform their genetic line, as well as torture them a bit in revenge when we were teenagers and love them to death when we are children and when we, and they, get older.

But the other aspect is that, indeed, studies in the field of epigenetics show us that the deoxyribonucleic acid/DNA and the genetic code in our bodies can be altered by our behaviors and so we alter a genetic line to make them more like us, influencing their culture and their genes. It is true that frequently they see us, even when we are born among them, as the ‘black sheep’ of their families. But still, you’ve got to start somewhere.

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

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.”
