Are There Actually Portals to Elfin?

December 3, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Click here to enjoy reading the beginning of the first chapter, table of contents and reader reviews on The Elves of Lyndarys: A Magical Tale of Modern Faerie Folk by The Silver Elves

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

Let’s Study Arvyndase, the Magical Language of the Silver Elves!

As many of you know, we now have published not only our book teaching you how to speak and write Arvyndase (see Arvyndase (Silverspeech): A Short Course in the Magical Language of the Silver Elves), but also The Complete Dictionary of  Arvyndase with over 30,000 words from English to Arvyndase and from Arvyndase to English. Arvyndase is a complete elven language and one of the best ways (at least one of the most fun ways) to learn it is to study Arvyndase vocabulary by translating our Silver Elves “Elf Sayings”. We have begun posting our Elf Sayings in Arvyndase in our Facebook group Magical Books of the Silver Elves, and we will also post them here for you with each upcoming blog. Below is the first, and by studying this one you will learn some important words in Arvyndase including tree, star, and moon:

Announcement For All Tree Lovers!

We Silver Elves are very happy to announce the publication of An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script! We are quite excited because it is an oracle book about the magic of trees, our loving cousins. Reading this book, you will learn about the magic that individual trees and tree groups may bring you, written from the point of view of the elves. And besides using this book as an oracle, each tree or tree group (of which there are 111) has an Elfin Ogham in the Wizard Script of the Silver Elves that may be used in your own magic. This book is easy to use as an oracle and the specifics on just how to do so are covered in the introduction and through out the book, with elven spells at the end of each chapter, written in English and also Arvyndase (the magical language of the Silver Elves), to be used for enchantment magic upon drawing the tree or tree group. To read more about this book and some sample chapters, please click here as we have a special blog page dedicated to this book.

“The paths to Elfin are like a Celtic Knot,
tangled and overlapping with no clear beginning nor any end,
but evoking a journey that is ever revealing of the magic and beauty
that lives within us and all around us.”

“The essence of the elven soul contains a great desire to heal. To heal the Earth, to heal ours’elves, to heal our others and to heal all that are around us and the only thing that prevents us from doing so is the absolute determination by some folk, who are not elven, to do otherwise.”

How do We Find Faerie? And How do we Deal with Being an Elf or Otherkin while Living in the Mundane World?

October 15, 2019
elfmyth
“. . . Faerie is all around us, living in potential everywhere and in nearly everyone, although as the sorcerers say: it takes an incredible feat of perception to see it.. . . every time you manifest as an elf or elfae other, you step closer to Faerie and Elfin, step into another dimension that is more Elfin in nature, on a path that leads step-by-step to the Land of our Dreams and Bright Imaginings. . . And as we elven know, this world we live in and that the mundane folk live in is Faerie. That’s important to understand! This is Faerie, it is just that most people don’t want to see that fact even when it is right before their noses. . . . We are, the all of us, sentient awareness creating forms out of stardust and starlight, energy given form by consciousness.”

How do we find Faerie?

     Many folks believe that Faerie exists as a parallel dimension to this one, and that is true. It does and yet, the way to Faerie isn’t by stepping from this dimension into that one, at least not directly, as though you were stepping through a door or threshold into an alternate world, but involves seeing Faerie manifest here and doing one’s best to manifest it in one’s own being and life. For Faerie is all around us, living in potential everywhere and in nearly everyone, although as the sorcerers say: it takes an incredible feat of perception to see it.

     And yet, it is not that you can’t step directly from this world to that. You can. However, in order to do that you must leave your current body behind and most people are rather loathe to do that and we are as well. One might think that we are saying that one can commit suicide and step into Faerie, but alas, that is not the case. Suicide has the curious effect of binding one to the world one is attempting to escape from. In committing suicide, one is just linking thems’elves more thoroughly to the world they are currently in. Committing suicide to escape this world is like getting yours’elf thrown into solitary confinement in order to escape from jail. You can escape, but only by altering your perception and changing the world around you in your own experience of that world.

     For the way to Faerie is not out but in. It is in changing our consciousness, becoming more elf, fae and other aware, that we subtly alter our bodies from the inside out and make the transition from this dimension to that possible. But this is not in a single step, although we’ve heard that instant enlightenment is possible (from those who claim but perhaps really haven’t achieved it), but by a series of steps and continuing effort to develop and improve ones’elf as an elfae being.

     This is rather like lifting weights really. One doesn’t suddenly go from bench pressing 50 lbs. to bench pressing 200 lbs. in a day. It takes time and effort and regular workouts to develop one’s strength. In our minds, we can achieve such a feat, but our minds are just one plane of being and in order to step into Faerie, we need to manifest it on all the planes. Not only in our minds, but our hearts and our bodies by living the life Elfin or Faerie, here now.

     Oh, what a paradox this is. A puzzle set for elves and elfae by elves and elfae. A riddle created by the ancients and the Divine Magic itself. You can’t enter Elfin without being elfin, fae or other and in being elfin, fae and other you automatically begin to create Elfin all around you. And every time you do this, every time you manifest as an elf or elfae other, you step closer to Faerie and Elfin, step into another dimension that is more Elfin in nature, on a path that leads step-by-step to the Land of our Dreams and Bright Imaginings.

     In living the life elfin, you transform. You alter your consciousness, the way you interact with the world, your perception and world view and those things transform your body or bodies really, your astral body, your mental body, your physical body and your body of light, also called your energetic body, which is your true body. We are, the all of us, sentient awareness creating forms out of stardust and starlight, energy given form by consciousness.

     It is not, however, just a matter of living your life as an elf, fae or other, although that can be very helpful and important. It is not entirely about dressing as the elves in the Lord of the Rings do, or however you perceive elven fashion to be. Or about surrounding yours’elf with elfin and fae artifacts, or wearing pointed ears or faerie or dragon wings or wolf fur or whatever evokes your inner nature for you. It is about seeing and perceiving the world around you in its true nature.

     For, beloved, Faerie is all around us. While most people look around and see Men and Women, we see elves, faeries, pixies, goblins (lots of goblins), grimlins, orcs, ogres, brownies, gnomes and all manner of Faerie being. We look beyond the glamour of the world to the reality that lives within it. Just as we see elfin in our own s’elves, we perceive the manifestation of Faerie life nearly everywhere. And yes, we also see men and women, but far less of them than one might suppose.

     And in seeing Faerie and in living the life Elfin, we are stepping ever closer to the dimensions where Elfin flourishes, beauty abounds and healing and magic are evidently manifest. Tolkien said that Faerie was a perilous realm, and isn’t this a perilous realm? Look about you, there are elf, fae and others everywhere, pretending to be other than they are, but we’re not fooled.

“If you stay in Faerie long,
you’re bound to hear the ancient song,
and hearing it you’ll joyous know
the magic that the fae do show
and seeing it your eyes
will clear as the Faerie Rade draws near,
and close to it you will embrace
your kindred of the Eldar Race.”
—The Silver Elves

How do we deal with being an Elf or Otherkin
while living in the mundane world?

It can be frustrating at times to live among mundane folk. They tend often to assume their point of view is the only true and right way to see things and even though they may disagree from one culture to another or one religion to another, or one race to another, or one gender to another about what the true and right way is, they still are of the opinion that they know it all. Most of the conflicts they have among themselves, of which there are many, come from these disagreements about the actual nature of the world and the right way to hold your spoon or fork, or what clothes one should wear at what time of year or whatever they happen to decide is proper and true at any particular time. These picayune requirements are all nonsense to the elfin but it is important to understand what is behind all this peer pressure toward conformity and the quest to keep everything as mundane and normal as possible.

     The world can be a dangerous place. As we have said above, Tolkien called Faerie the Perilous Realm, and surely it is. And as we elven know, this world we live in and that the mundane folk live in is Faerie. That’s important to understand! This is Faerie, it is just that most people don’t want to see that fact even when it is right before their noses. For Faerie is like a dream world where you may have very amazing, fantastic and magical dreams but you could also have terrible and recurring nightmares. They’ve given us a few. Still most dreams people have are fairly mundane dreams although somewhat puzzling at times.

     The Normal folk, as they generally call themselves, attempt to bring some order to the world, to Faerie, by organizing it along some very strict lines of social behavior and activity. They are really seeking to be safe, to create peace and harmony in their own way. They think that if they just all look alike and are walking in line together that the boogie man won’t get them. It is just that their way of achieving safety and security is the way of peer pressure and dominance, social ridicule and ostracization and it leads to innumerable conflicts both within their societies and between them individually.

       Behind all this is the dark magic of the wicked sorcerers who seek to control them for their own profit and satisfaction and so riddled throughout their societies is a hierarchical jockeying for position and power on nearly every level and, of course, among the dark sorcerers themselves. In truth, being compelled to wearing a suit and tie for work, instead of whatever you would choose to wear, is the same as saluting, touching your forelock, bowing down, kneeing and other acts of submission to arbitrary authority.

     Ever notice in television shows and movies that the villains most often have their captives knell down before they kill them? This is not simply about control of danger, but of forcing submission and power over others. The Normal folk live in constant but often unacknowledged fear, but then Faerie can be a dangerous place. And we know this is so, and we understand what motivates these folks to seek safety in numbers and to ridicule all who don’t conform because inwardly they are afraid that a lack of conformity will bring danger and ruin into their lives. The sheep who strays is dinner for the wolves, they tell themselves and there is truth in this. It takes courage to be an elf or other.

     Of course, their attempts at creating uniform (literally) societies are doomed to failure and are no more effective really than many of the things they deem to be unscientific and superstitious. And for people who are ever evoking science as an excuse for mocking and deriding our claims to be otherkin, they are really the most unscientific and science hating lot. We elfin, elfae, faeries and others tend to be far more scientific in our approach to things than they, really, although we embrace the mythological, imaginal and fantastic elements of our being with equal fervor. We don’t pretend to be scientific while basing nearly everything important on faith. We have faith in science and magic. And really for us, science is just another form of magic; and magic, certainly, has its scientific side.

     So how do we deal with living among the mundane folk? Cautiously at times, when they get in their dangerous moods, when they are truly afraid and paranoid, which for some of them is nearly all the time. Camouflaging ours’elves from them most of the time, but in a camouflage that secretly tells our kindred who we are. Openly at times, being out and ours’elves when we think they can handle it and encouraging them to do the same even though they may seek to ridicule us for doing so. However, that seldom turns out well for them for logic and reason aren’t really their strong suits, even though they fool themselves into thinking so and we can have deadly tongues if we so choose and can delight in twisting and tangling their minds into elf knots that they find nearly impossible to unravel and most often flee from us screaming.

     But usually, we are just kind to them, smiling at them, loving them and soothing their fears, although they cling to their fears like a security blanket. Kind in ways that baffle them and keep them guessing and we invite them, in simple ways, to play along with us, kick off their shoes for just a moment or two and join in the dance. It’s fine. It’s safe and quite healing. We won’t tell anyone.

As we elves often say, “Our beauty often comes from our uniqueness.” If you would like further guidance on making the magic of Faerie real in your own life, we suggest reading  Living the Personal Myth, a unique narrative about a psychological study of the magic of living one’s personal myth, in effect, making one’s dream and vision of one’s self come true by living it. It is a personal guide to becoming one’s true s’elf as one inwardly knows one’s s’elf to be. This book is a potent guide to realizing one’s genuine, and potentially powerful, magical and fantastic nature.

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

by The Silver Elves

 

To Elfin Find

Free we are, to Elfin find
Whatever kin, of any kind
Together do we travel
The mysteries unravel.

Secrets deep, and secrets old
Will now the mysteries unfold
Whisper gently to the bold
From ages long ago untold.

From simple self to Shining One
All has ever yet begun
Such treasures can be won
Silver Moon and golden Sun.

With far memories of an ancient way
Where Elfae sing and Dragons play
And twirling Faeries laugh about
The glen where flowers ever sprout.

Otherworld is like they say
Only one step in mind away
All creatures fey and fair
Call us out to join them there.

And appreciation do we show
To near and far so all can know
Because gratitude knows no bounds
When our True Heart is truly found.

And when the hearth we have found
Joyous tales do abound
Of travels wide and far
Guided by an Elfin star.

Whose light does ever shine within
The secret of our heart
Where ‘er we go or ‘er we’ve been
You’ve been there from the start.

—written together by Hennie van Geel, Sara Isayama (Ileådryn), Zardoa‎, and Silver Flame (members of the Facebook group “Magical Books of the Silver Elves”)

What Can We Do to Help Manifest Elfin in this Material World?

August 23, 2019
SEevocation“If we wish to manifest Elfin in the material world . . . . we must develop ours’elves as soulful spirits that exist within and upon the various planes of manifestation. In many ways, the most important of these planes, in terms of altering our world, is what we might refer to as the plane of magic, which is to say that realm where energy and action combined with will and intention are most potent and powerful. We need to live with true intent. Manifesting as the elves, faeries, pixies or the others that we know ours’elves to be as best we may in this world on each and every day. By doing this we emphasize the power of magic, the power of spirit and the true energetic nature or ours’elves and the world around us.”

     Many people wish to find Faerie or Elfin, which they believe exists as a realm, somewhat like this world, only a bit more ethereal and certainly more magical. What they don’t seem to understand is that to find that world they have to become more ethereal thems’elves. It is true that some folks who have psychic perception can view the Other World from time to time and it is also true that certain plants, mushrooms and trees can offer one a temporary glimpse of that world. But if we wish to manifest Elfin upon the Earth, as these elves do, then that is going to take a dedication to living the Life Elfin or Elfae and making real what exists in potential.

     Or, if you wish to abandon this world, and we wouldn’t blame you if you did, and go and live in that other realm, you need to understand that you can’t really do that with your body as it now exists. You essentially have to leave your humanoid body behind, or your physical material body if you aren’t human, in order to enter and stay in that realm. In other words, that realm is usually only entered after we have abandoned our material form and even then, most of us return to this material world again, fairly quickly in most cases, because we, despite what we might think, just aren’t finished with what we have to do and what we desire here.

     Some folks might think that if they just walk off into the wilds of Nature they will find Elfin or Faerie, but they surely will not, at least not in the form that they desire. They may find wild, unseelie Faerie, but that is not always a good place for gentle folk to be and it can always prove dangerous and demanding.

     Others might hope that in ending their lives they will be transported there, but if that is the case it is so only briefly, if at all. Alas, the energy that drives people toward suicide is the very energy that ties them to this world and returns them here, again and again. Suicide is like a hallway with a door at each end and if you go out one door you find yours’elf coming into the hallway from the other, over and over again. There is no quick route to Elfin, there is no easy escape from this world. It is, however, in this world and through this life that we attain Mastery and it is through Mastery that we are able to create Elfin.

     If we wish to manifest Elfin in the material world, or if we wish to leave this world for Elfin or Faerie as it exists upon more etheric planes, we must develop ours’elves as soulful spirits that exist within and upon the various planes of manifestation by excepting our true Nature. In many ways, the most important of these planes, in terms of altering our world, is what we might refer to as the plane of magic, which is to say that realm where energy and action combined with will and intention are most potent and powerful. We need to live with true intent. Manifesting as the elves, faeries, pixies or the others that we know ours’elves to be as best we may in this world on each and every day. By doing this we emphasize the power of magic, the power of spirit and the true energetic nature of ours’elves and the world around us.

     This is not entirely easy, although as elves we surely are inclined naturally and instinctively to pursue the path of least resistance in nearly every circumstance and situation. But the world as is will not help us in this endeavor or surely not willingly and we are best assisted in this quest by others upon the path. Not only other elves, for those of us who are elven, or other faeries for the faerie folk, or therians or whatever, but those who understand and except the exceptional nature of reality and accept and appreciate our uniqueness and our understanding of ours’elves as otherworldly beings. Finding others of our kind with whom we can tread the path is not easy usually, but in finding them the path becomes a great deal easier. Till then, only the truly strong, the truly dedicated can endure this path for long when treading it alone. We would surely have given up long ago, if we did not have each other.

     But another means of manifesting Elfin involves the ethereal planes of the astral feeling planes and the mental imaginal planes of being. By feeling Elfin, and putting depth of feeling into our magic and enchantments, we bring Elfin alive. How do you put your feeling into your magic? Not, as some would think, with extreme emotion, although that is not without some power, although not as much for elfin folk, but by touching that part of ours’elves that loves Elfin and Faerie and all things Elfae and channeling that energy into our enchantments.

     And further, we can see Elfin and Faerie all around us, if we just allow our imaginal facility to flow, while still holding on to our understanding of the world as others see it. To see only Elfin and Faerie is to become unattached to the normal world, which is rather like being unaware that a poisonous snake lives near you. It is what normal folk used to refer to as “being away with the Faeries,” by which they meant the person was a bit insane but usually not dangerously so.

     Rather, the trick, the pixie trick if you will, is to stand between the worlds and see both of them at the same time, recognizing both realms and planes of manifestation but acting, as much as possible, in such a way as to manifest Elfin. You still see that poisonous snake and take precautions concerning it, but you know as well, that it is just another denizen of Faerie, simply of the more dangerous variety. Normal folk are usually not normal at all, unless you consider dysfunctionality as normal, which they do (see an excerpt from our book Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders and sold on Amazon here), but rather they are really some sort of other hiding their true natures and in hiding creating a mess in the world. Although, it is true that many of them are under a dark sorcerous spell that has hidden their true natures from them, and leaves them struggling with thems’elves and each other because they can never truly be happy until they do know and accept their true natures.

     But perhaps the greatest thing one can do to manifest Elfin, beside becoming the best elf, faerie or other one can be, is to nurture the Elfae energy in others, support all their positive attempts to manifest thems’elves and foster their sense of their own otherworldly nature. These attempts that we sometimes see from individuals of Elfae blood who attempt to deride others for thinking or seeing things differently, that seek to deny others their own right to be other, is a residual dark spell born of the normal world and is not truly elfin at all. As we do our best to promote the otherworldly aspirations of our others, we find that our kindred are everywhere, and the Path grows ever easier thereby.
May the Rain Fall and the Sun Shine Where It Is Needed for All!

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

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.

“Many people are in a hurry to escape this world and get to Elfin. But Elfin is a very serene place and the more composed one becomes the sooner one realizes that Elfin exists in potential all around us. When we become calm within, it appears.”

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

Through the Mists of Faerie is our most popular book by The Silver Elves, along with The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones

“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.

with an excerpt from Through The Mists of Faerie 

You may read Through The Mists of Faerie to learn more about “The Seven Pointed Star, which in its acute form is called by us the Elf Star and by the faeries the Faery Star, is a great symbol of the Elven People and represents many things to us, including but not exclusive to our association with the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, the seven root races of humanity with their seven sub-races, the seven chakras, and the seven rays of manifestation.”

“It is also representative of the seven magical achievements that elevate us toward the realm of the Shining Ones that we call Elfin Faerie, which is to say these achievements illuminate our beings with light.”
The Presence, Focus, Calm Composure, Inner Understanding, Openness, Appreciation, Altruism. You may read more about these seven magical achievements in Through The Mists of Faerie.

“In a certain way, the Horns of Elfin are similar to dog whistles, in that when they are sounded they are of such a vibration that only the elfin can hear them. And we hear it not so much with our ears but with our hearts. Did you feel that? Elfin is Calling!”
—The Silver Elves
