What do the Elves View as the Difference Between the Piscean and Aquarian Ages?

January 16, 2021

“. . . . the tides keep coming in. The Age of Aquarius is slowly approaching. Not in one great tidal wave that will wash away the entire world, we hope, but in incremental steps that increase the number of those who are more tolerant in the world, more accepting of differences, and better able to harmonize in an effort to truly make the world more sustainable and enduring.”
— The Silver Elves

Back in the late 1960’s with the play Hair on Broadway and the popularity of the song The Age of Aquarius from that play, done in a medley with another song ‘Let the Sun Shine In’ (also from Hair) by the group the Fifth Dimension, the esoteric notion of spiritual and evolutionary Ages (see H. Blavatsky The Secret Doctrine) for the development of humanity, especially the coming transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age was thrust into popular culture.

That notion has faded into the background since then to the point it is hardly mentioned or acknowledged anymore. And that is to be expected. The evolution of a New Age comes not in a sudden change of humanity, like an alien invasion that arrives one day and takes over, but rather in a series of tides coming in and then receding again, after having left shells and sea weed and other things on the shore.

More mutants, which is to say increasing numbers of us elfae folk, are born, live and die and each wave brings even more of us and, for the most part, since we tend to live healthier, or more health conscious lives, we also are inclined to live longer (except for some of the Piscean Age thinking people seeking to kill us off) and eventually the mass of humanity will shift from normal folk to elfin folk over the course of time. Or, if you will, from Piscean Age thinkers, to Aquarian Age thinkers.

But what is the difference between the Piscean and Aquarian Ages?

The Piscean approach to life and all in it is essentially dualistic. Everything or most nearly all things are good or bad, black or white, true or false. It promotes the notion of thesis, antithesis and eventually synthesis but even more so the idea that the truth when contrasted to the false, will eventually win out. This is the basis of the present American Justice System and many others. It is the conflict of opposites. In some esoteric circles, it is the fourth ray of manifestation which rules beauty and harmony, which is said to create Harmony through Conflict. This is a Piscean way of viewing things.

The Aquarian view of the fourth ray is instead, Harmony Through Diversity. While the Piscean energy lends itself to the idea that there is one truth and thus that there is one true religion, as so many faiths claim to be, or our race is good and all others bad, also our country, ethnic group and even our generation are right and others wrong/evil. While Aquarian thought, on the other hand, presents the idea that all people have value, that every race, creed, culture and generation have something to contribute as long as they respect, cooperate and have tolerance for others. It is not good vs. bad, but good, bad and an enormous variety of possibilities in between. Doesn’t that sound elven to you!

We sometimes hear from some of the younger elves that all the problems that exist today are due to the Boomer Generation. We Boomers thought something similar when we were very young as well of the generations before us. What we learned, however, is that while we were quite liberal as individuals and as elfin beings, that many of our supposed generation were not. We may have been born around the same time, but we were very different individuals. The same holds true today. It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that one’s entire generation shares one’s views, that my generation will set things straight (we surely thought that at one time) but observation of reality has revealed to us that there are spiritual and materialistic individuals in every generation. Some perhaps more than others, but still there.

It might be more accurate to say that some of those who are of the Boomers are responsible for the mess we are in today in the world, but they inherited that world from generations before them, and will pass it on to generations to come, some of whom will seek, as we did, to make the world a better place and others who will continue to put self interest over everything else, including the survival of humanity and the planet. The fact that their own survival is also endangered seems to be something that they put out of their minds (and they are often out of their minds while seemingly obsessed with their own opinions) and simply ignore in favor of their prejudices and avarice.

Yet, the tides keep coming in. The Age of Aquarius is slowly approaching. Not in one great tidal wave that will wash away the entire world, we hope, but in incremental steps that increase the number of those who are more tolerant in the world, more accepting of differences, and better able to harmonize in an effort to truly make the world more sustainable and enduring. In other words, individuals who are more truly elfin in nature who are wise to the traps of racism, sexism, ageism, classism and every other pigeon hole set to limit our minds, our understanding of our s’elves and others, and our ability to cooperate toward creating a more beautiful, harmonious and, thus for us, more elfin world.

The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

Excerpt from Chapter One of —From The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones by The Silver Elves:

Awakening
“While we’ve often written that faery tales, both ancient and modern, view the faery folk as being ruled by monarchs, this idea is more a reflection of the lives of men and of the world that was and is than a true indication of the Realms of Elfin. This is not to say that there doesn’t exist a Hierarchy in Faery, but that it is important to understand that this Hierarchy is a natural one based on real development and merit and not in the least arbitrary or artificially constructed. All hierarchies, organizations and bureaucracies in the world are a pale attempt to recreate, or in many cases bypass or supersede, this natural hierarchy.”

“The hierarchy of Elfin is a spiritual hierarchy—the hierarchy of illuminated being, of s’elf development of magical maturity—and thus it is the power, of awakened consciousness and expanded and enlightened awareness. Besides the attempts of many to construct this hierarchy in the world, it is also reflected in Nature, where there are hierarchies of intelligence, of knowledge, of personality, beauty, strength, and so forth. While artificial hierarchies tend to be rather strictly structured and unyielding, these natural hierarchies, reflective of the true spiritual hierarchy, are varied and yielding. For instance, while there are general tendencies, we don’t all agree about who is most beautiful or most attractive. It is rather like the question, what is your favorite color? It depends on the individual. So, too, the natural hierarchies are, like the true inner hierarchy, dependent greatly on the individual and their own position in the Universe, their individual tendencies.”

“There is another way that the spiritual hierarchy tends to differ from all artificial hierarchies and even from the hierarchy of Nature. Artificial hierarchies tend to be pyramid schemes with one or a few people on the top and increasing numbers of individuals in various levels below with the greatest number on the bottom. This formula does not tend to change. The one at the top may change. Sometimes, but rarely one’s position on the hierarchy may change, but the structure tends to stay the same. In fact, that is its purpose to reinforce itself and maintain this structure.”

“On the other hand, while the spiritual hierarchy may have more on the bottom than the top at any particular point, the goal and purpose of this hierarchy is to get everyone at the top, to have everyone progress further and further into the realms of Elfin, the realms of radiant enlightenment.”

“We might think of it as a game. In the game of the material world the first ones to reach home win; everyone else is considered a loser. In the spiritual game, we gain points when each one reaches home and our ultimate goal is to get everyone home. Then and only then have we truly won the game.”

“Among some elves the weavers of the Fates are viewed as an Ancient Witch known as the Necromancer who carries a crystal ball, removes disused cobwebs with her broom and rules the Past. The Present is dominated by a bald middle aged male who carries a staff and does martial arts katas while reciting spells. He is known as the Dancer. And the Future is created by an androgynous child who plays with figures in a sand box imagining the future into being. No one knows this one’s name, although some call Hir Starlight.”
—The Silver Elves

Some Important Further Reading for Elves . . . .

There are those that may ridicule you for saying that you are an elf, but the world is changing slowly and Elfin is manifesting here as we create it in our lives. We modern elves are in all professions and bring our elven perspectives with us! In 2005, Zardoa Silverstar of the Silver Elves received his Masters of Arts Degree in Depth Psychology from Sonoma State University based upon his thesis on his Depth Inquiry research study concerning his life and magic as an Elf. Living the Personal Myth: Making the Magic of Faerie Real in One’s Own Life is a Silver Elves book that is based on his thesis and his use of the personal myth as a process for exploring the magical world of the unconscious.

Living the Personal Myth:
Making the Magic of Faerie Real in One’s Own Life
Below is an excerpt from: Living the Personal Myth, Chapter 3: The Development of My Personal Myth, pages 53-56:

Welcome To My World

“James Hillman (1997), Jungian analyst and the originator of archetypal psychology, argues that the generally accepted opinion, which holds that the parents, particularly the mother, is the most formative power in a person’s life, is inaccurate. He offers instead the idea that there is the archetypal daimon who guides us and drives us toward fulfillment of our true nature and calling. This daimon is in the form of a guiding force or guardian angel who holds the image of what we are meant to be. Of this he writes: “Yet all along a little elf whispers another tale: ‘You are different; you’re not like anyone in the family; you don’t really belong.’ There is an unbeliever in the heart. It calls the family a fantasy, a fallacy.” I heard that elf. It whispered to me: You are one of us.”

“I am an elf. I realize that must sound strange to some readers, since from the popularly accepted point of view, elves are fictional beings who do not and, being a product of fiction/fantasy/fairy tales/folk lore, cannot exist. However, the intelligent reader, like yourself, will ask, what do you mean by that statement? And my reply is multifold. When I say I am an elf, I mean, in part, that I am a theorist and practitioner of what I call the Elven Way which is a spiritual practice. Therefore, when I say I am an elf, I’m using it in the same way someone might say, I’m a practitioner of Buddhism, or Hinduism, or Catholicism or Judaism.”

“However, as you will see, for mys’elf, I also use my identification as an elf in both a genetic sense and a cultural one. Thus I could say to you that I am a descendent of the Scottish, English, Welsh, French and Dutch, but as I trace the ancestry of those peoples further back, I find I am equally entitled to tell you I am a descendent of the Pixies, Elves, Brownies, and Fae or Faery Folk. Just as some modern Italians could say they are descended from the Romans and some might argue before that the Trojans, so I tell you I am descended from the folks who were once known as the Elves, Pixies. Brownies and Fae. And just as the stories of Troy where once thought to be purely fictional or mythological until the late 1870’s, so are the stories of my ancestors currently considered in just this way.”

“And I also use the term elf culturally. So when I say I am an elf, I also mean that I carry on many of the traditions and fashions that have been passed on through the ages by my people. However, I don’t ask you to believe I am an elf. I simply ask to you to understand and accept that this is the culture, people and tradition, with whom I identify. And it is this culture that is at the heart of my personal myth.”

Religion or Culture?

“If you tell someone that you are a Buddhist, a Catholic, Jewish or even an agnostic or atheist, while they might not agree with your choice, they at least, for the most part believe it to be a real one. If you tell someone your ancestors were Italian or Japanese or Cherokee or even some tribe from Africa that they’ve never heard of, they will accept what you say without question. Try telling someone you’re an Elf.”

If you tell someone you are descended from elves, they will, A. think you’re crazy, or B. think you are pulling their leg, or C. think that you have taken Dungeons and Dragons a mite too seriously which brings us back to A.”

“If you tell someone you are on the Elven Path rather than claiming any other religious affiliation they will think you are, A. crazy, B. pulling their leg, or C. part of a weird cult, which brings us back to A.”

“Because, in the minds of most people, elves do not and have never existed except in Faery Tales. The very words Fairy Tale is defined by the dictionary (Soukhanov, 1984) as a story that is fanciful or fictitious.”

“So are we, as elves, a religion and thus some form of new age cult, or are we a culture descended from a people who never existed except in the imagination of fanciful people, and in tales told to children before they are old enough to realize what the world is really like? The answer is neither. The Elven Path is animistic in nature. Nearly all tales about us say that we are the Elder Race (Evans-Wentz, 1966; Tolkien, 1977b), the original people. Our path is aboriginal and thus, as Frazer (1951/1922) points out, shamanistic and pre-religious. Ours is a spiritual path, not a religion. We have no dogma, doctrine nor specific rituals, although every elf is free to follow whatever religion or believe whatever they choose concerning religion, the Universe and the world.”

“Is it a path we’ve inherited or is it one we’ve created? To me that doesn’t matter; for all spiritual paths began somewhere, sometime. All things, all religions, all cultures, are created. So for the longest time I would tell people that if there never were a historical people called elves, there are now! Yet, I always felt, deep, deep within, that I was descended from elves. For who else but elves would even wish to claim to be an elf? “

When Faerie Returns Will There Still be a Race of Men? And Are Elves Halflings, Part Mankind, due to Manifesting in Human Bodies?

July 19, 2020

rainbowSilverblog

. . . having human bodies doesn’t make us men at all but rather makes men (mankind), at least in part and potential, Elfae . . . . Eventually, those who are pretending to be men will become whatever they really are. Trolls will become trolls, grimlins will be become grimlins, kobolds will become kobolds and gnomes, gnomes. And Men (Mankind)? There will be Men who will become Super-Men, super heroes, as they have ever told us. They will use their strength to fight for what is right, to protect the innocent and the weak and make the world a better place, safer place for all. Although, it is true in becoming Super Men, they will be much more like elves and fae.”

tiny_green_7star

Some people think that Mankind will eventually evolve into elves or some other kind of elfae. While that is surely possible, and definitely possible for some “men,” we Silver Elves find it unlikely to be the case for all Men — although we don’t really know. We’re just considering this idea and pondering it to see if it does have any substance to it at all.

     One of the great difficulties with understanding this issue is that Men, like Elves in that sense, are rather hard to define, although for different reasons. Men, which curiously denotes both men and women, seem to ever hold themselves as being dominate over women and if not that, then at least essentially different than women, while at the same time defining them as one race.

     We elves on the other hand have little gender consciousness. We are elves first and foremost and nearly all elves have a balance of their masculine and feminine features of their being even as we manifest as male or female, or both in a particular incarnation. We know that there are differences due to our physical bodies, but our spirits, which are our true s’elves, are ever elves whether we choose to manifest as male or female in any given lifetime. We also note that we may manifest in bodies that go bald, have pointed ears or not, have red, black, brown or blond hair, various eye colors and other material differences that happen to come along with the body we choose as most efficacious for filling our mission in this or some other life. Our true bodies are energy and light and we are well aware of this fact.

     Mankind, on the other hand, doesn’t seem aware of their energetic natures for the most part and this is what leads some individuals to hypothesis that they will transform into more elfin beings when they eventually become awakened to the spiritual nature of the Universe and themselves. And by that we don’t mean religious beliefs but an awakening to the reality that spirit and consciousness are the source of Life and the material world is merely a temporary form we’ve created with our consciousness by formulating light into structure.

     Part of the difficulty may be that Mankind is a kind of catch all term for many races. It is a concept that has been applied to those in human form overall and thus people think we elves are really men or women, that orcs are men, and pixies and brownies and goblins and all manner of folk have been raised with the idea that they are part of Mankind, when in fact they are really something quite different. It is as though we were all made physically to put on the same uniform and thus everyone assumes we must be the same despite quite obvious differences in our being and characters.

     The idea of Mankind is an attempt to organize the world, mostly by those who wish to dominate it but also by those who think that uniformity will create a peaceful society, that differences are the source of conflict in the world and if we would all pretend we were the same then everything would be wonderful.

     But when we come to the realization that we are really all different, what then? Will Men (Mankind) still be Men? When Men realize there is magic in the world, will they still be Men? Of course, this dismissal of magic is mostly a current fad. Men believed in magic in the past and some still do.

     But most men are of a heroic character. They are not so much magicians for the most part, or enchanters like we elves, but warriors. At least that is what their own lore tells us of them. Although, they seem somewhat uncertain about what being heroic actually entails. They seem to confuse it at times with being strong, courageous and powerful but they don’t always remember that heroism isn’t just about fighting and overcoming one’s adversaries, but standing up for what is true and right and good in the world. They are inclined at times to confuse bullying with heroic behavior, but again that may be because some Unseelie races who are not so inclined toward the heroic hide among them.

     But, if we accept Men at their word, and we Silver Elves think we are obligated to do so, at least until they utterly prove otherwise, then Mankind is a spiritual race whose greatest values revolve around being brave and enduring despite all obstacles. Eventually, those who are pretending to be men will become whatever they really are. Trolls will become trolls, grimlins will be become grimlins, kobolds will become kobolds and gnomes, gnomes. And Men (Mankind)? There will be some Men who will become Super-Men, super heroes, as they have ever told us. They will use their strength to fight for what is right, to protect the innocent and the weak and make the world a better place, safer place for all. Although, it is true in becoming Super Men, they will be much more like elves and fae.

“Men (Mankind) say that their sacred books tell them they were made from dust. Our sacred elven magical tomes tell us we elves were made from stardust. So, we are clearly related to Men, only we elves are a bit more sparkly.”
—The Silver Elves

tiny_green_7star

And while we are on the subject of elves and mankind. . . . .

Are Elves Halflings, Part Mankind, due to Manifesting in Human Bodies?

This is an interesting question and it brings to mind another question which is “How much of our being is based upon the body that we choose to or find ours’elves incarnate within.” Certainly, from the point of view of most of Mankind, who currently view the world from a basically materialistic viewpoint due greatly to the influence of the Dark or Material Age or Kali Yuga we are currently in, having human bodies would make us who are elfae beings, at least in part, Men. Although, most of those of us who are elfae have been told in our lives, especially those of us manifesting in male bodies, we are not really ‘real men’ at all. At least, this is according to those men and women who deem themselves self-appointed authorities on this subject.

And honestly, we have no real interest in being considered ‘real men’ and we do not even pretend to be so except in those instances when to do otherwise would be to endanger us — endanger those very bodies — for Men tend to be hostile, paranoid and sometimes violent concerning those whom they view as being different to them, even other men.

Of course, quite a few men have informed us that they were made in the ‘image and likeness’ of their god. If that is the case, then ‘image and likeness’ would essentially indicate their bodies and thus in having humanoid bodies, like men, we would not be halflings who are half men but rather halflings who are half or part divine. And this is surely true. Certainly, we elves have a divine time being together.

However, while we do think that bodies, overall, are rather divine and the human form surely wondrous, we also think dogs, cats, horses, tigers, hawks and other creatures quite wondrous as well in their bodies, as well are the trees, flowers and plants and all manner of being. We elves are of the opinion, however, that, for the most part, it is not our human bodies that make us divine but our elven spirits that link us to the magical and wondrous aspects of the Universe and Nature. Although, we’ve encountered some pretty divine bodies in our time.

Our true link to Mankind, therefore, would not actually be our humanoid bodies, for there are elven trees and elven dogs and elves in various other forms that don’t have human bodies. But, on the contrary, it would be our divine spirit and its magical potential that actually connects us to Mankind as well as to everything else in the Universe, by the function of our soulful being.

We might apply the same sort of question, in a way, to Unicorns. Are Unicorns halfling horses? Or perhaps, mostly horses (usually, for there are also goat unicorns, we’ve photos of ours’elves with one, see the cover of our book Liber Aelph)? Well, sort of. But at the same time, even though Unicorns have a horse body with a horn, it is so special and marvelous that the Unicorn is something quite other really. Something so magical that it is no longer a horse really, but something greater. Perhaps Horse 2.1 or something.

While we elves are clearly related to Men, as we are to the all of life, our bodies do not make us half men. On the contrary, due to the fact that all the legends, lore and myths about us say that we are the Elder people, the first humanoid race that predates the creation of Mankind, having human bodies doesn’t make us men at all but rather makes men, at least in part and potential, Elfae.

This is not to say that there doesn’t exist a Hierarchy in Faery, but that it is important to understand that this Hierarchy is a natural one based on real development and merit and not in the least arbitrary or artificially constructed. All hierarchies, organizations and bureaucracies in the world are a pale attempt to recreate, or in many cases bypass or supersede, this natural hierarchy.”

“The hierarchy of Elfin is a spiritual hierarchy—the hierarchy of illuminated being, of s’elf development of magical maturity—and thus it is the power, of awakened consciousness and expanded and enlightened awareness. Besides the attempts of many to construct this hierarchy in the world, it is also reflected in Nature, where there are hierarchies of intelligence, of knowledge, of personality, beauty, strength, and so forth. While artificial hierarchies tend to be rather strictly structured and unyielding, these natural hierarchies, reflective of the true spiritual hierarchy, are varied and yielding. For instance, while there are general tendencies, we don’t all agree about who is most beautiful or most attractive. It is rather like the question, what is your favorite color? It depends on the individual. So, too, the natural hierarchies are, like the true inner hierarchy, dependent greatly on the individual and their own position in the Universe, their individual tendencies.”

“There is another way that the spiritual hierarchy tends to differ from all artificial hierarchies and even from the hierarchy of Nature. Artificial hierarchies tend to be pyramid schemes with one or a few people on the top and increasing numbers of individuals in various levels below with the greatest number on the bottom. This formula does not tend to change. The one at the top may change. Sometimes, but rarely one’s position on the hierarchy may change, but the structure tends to stay the same. In fact, that is its purpose to reinforce itself and maintain this structure.”

“On the other hand, while the spiritual hierarchy may have more on the bottom than the top at any particular point, the goal and purpose of this hierarchy is to get everyone at the top, to have everyone progress further and further into the realms of Elfin, the realms of radiant enlightenment.”

“We might think of it as a game. In the game of the material world the first ones to reach home win; everyone else is considered a loser. In the spiritual game, we gain points when each one reaches home and our ultimate goal is to get everyone home. Then and only then have we truly won the game.”

“We call it the Elven Way but we could call it the Faerie Way, the Fair Way, the Way of the Fae, the Way of the Shining Ones, or even the Way that begins in your Dreams and ends in the Life Magical.”
—The Silver Elves

Zardoaquote27

“They write of Elven Kingdoms
And Elvish Queendoms, too
And clans and mobs
And bands that throb
And all of this we do.
But most of all we’re family
From littlest to big
From wee folk
To the very great
In shiny velvet rig.
And in that magic family
Love does ever reign
Not queen, nor king or mighty chief
But affection never fain.
For friendship ever rules us
And loyalty sincere
And most of all abiding love
For all whom we hold dear.”

Beyond Death: The Elfin Book of the Dead, Ascending towards the Faerie Realms through Progressive Incarnations

June 5, 2020

BeyondDeathCoverweb

“WHEN SOMEONE PASSES FROM THEIR BODY, THE ELVES GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE GREAT FOREST TO ANEW LIFE IN FAERIE.”. . . . . . .

New Release!
This book is found here for purchase on Amazon USA
and here on Amazon UK.

          BEYOND DEATH: The Elfin Book of the Dead by The Silver Elves is a guide for those who are dealing with the recently deceased or dying, as well as for anyone who would like to begin consciously preparing for their own demise. There are two parts to Beyond Death — the first part explores the theoretical aspects concerning death and the Between worlds from an elven perspective, and the second part of this book has practical admonitions and spells based on the Elven Star (7 pointed acute hexagram) that can help a person who is in the process of transitioning from one incarnation to another.

     Part One of Beyond Death explores death and the Between states as it relates to a variety of topics including: elven magic, immortality of elves, raising the dead, lucid dreaming, the experience of the between state, the Death card in the Tarot, the stages of grief and dealing with death, death and amnesia, the fae descent into matter, Faerie and the Nether-realms, elven perspectives on how various myths and religions view death, the wild hunt, banshees and black dogs, Day of the Dead, Sitting Shiva and Shiva, astral travel and the relationship of death to teraphim, nature spirits and animism.

     It is nearly impossible to know exactly what you will encounter in the Between since our experience there depends greatly upon our own inner being and consciousness, especially our subconscious being, our right brained symbolic consciousness that manifests in dream states and during the Between. However, the general principles and developmental stages are rather universal so we have fashioned from an elven perspective spells and admonitions of guidance so that we might aid anyone who is transiting the realms of manifestation. These spells (see Part Two of the book) are linked to the Elven Star and its seven points and seven intersections or interstices (so 14 in all) and the energies they represent. They are designed to be spoken over 14 days (one spell each day) as you contemplate or more importantly feel (if you knew and have feelings for the individual you wish to guide) the person on whose behalf you are casting the spell. You might wish to set up a temporary magic table, what most people call an altar, with photos or items reminiscent of the individual(s) for this purpose. These spells and admonitions relate to energies of the 14 realms of manifestation: The Red Diamond World, Blue Wave World, Realm of the Wondrous Yellow Orb, Realm of the Rainbow Bridge, Emerald Green World, Orange Glowing World, Royal Purple Mist Realm, Lavender Lotus World, Deep Green Forest World, Golden Light of the Shining Realms, Silver Realms of Moonlight Being, Realm of the Amber Orbs of Translucent Wonder, Opalescent Realm of Radiant Being, and Pure Clear Realm of Radiant Light. We purposely put the 14 day spells and admonitions (ritual) for the recently deceased loved one as the Part Two in this book so it may be easy to find when you need it for guiding your loved one through the Between.

We would like to dedicate BEYOND DEATH to all the soulful spirits who have passed on to the Between due to the Coronvirus Pandemic 2020 and we hope you awaken onto the realization of the life eternal.

“It should be clear to nearly everyone that life in the world will eventually kill your body, but life in Elfin will ultimately awaken you to the immortality of you spirit.”

“Mayhaps the essence of the difference between the philosophies of the elves and that of men is this: Men think there is nothing more permanent than Death. While we elves think there is nothing more transitory.”
—The Silver Elves

 

Excerpts from: Beyond Death

PART ONE:
Musing on Life, which is to say Death, which is to say Life

Excerpt Page 21-25
Chapter 2: Are Elves Immortal?

     “Most stories about the fae folk say that we are immortal or very long lived. Of course, that’s also what is said about vampires (what we Silver Elves think of as dark elves, sometimes but not always of an unseelie variety) until someone plunges a stake through their heart or binds them into the sunlight and the light turns them to ashes and dust that blows away with the wind. This destroys their body, surely, but where does their spirit go?”

     “Elves, too, as we say, are sometimes seen as being immortal up until the point when we, like vampires, get killed, although the methods for killing us are often less idiosyncratic than it is for vampires. Still, if your body can be killed, it’s not exactly immortal as a cohesive unit, just potentially long lived and we each strive for immortality not only of the spirit but of the body as well.”

     “There is a reason that, while we know ours’elves to be spirits, we think of our bodies as our own and a part of us. It is true that we have, in a sense, commandeered energy from the Universe and formed it into our body and that body changes, shedding skin, hair and other things, all its cells being replaced periodically throughout our lives, and yet it still remains one unit while we are in it. Our body may change utterly through the course of a life and yet still we remain ours’elves. We are learning through the vehicles of incarnation how to construct bodies that will last and endure and become a part of us in a more permanent fashion. In a certain sense, the union of our spirit and our body is a marriage of sorts. The fact that for most of us, as yet, that marriage ends in divorce/death is only to say that we have much to learn about magic and need a good deal more time and effort in order to increase our own powers of endurance, healing and manifestation.”

     “As it is, most of us elves currently incarnated into human bodies do not have immortal material bodies. We die, like everyone else, but often, but not always, we do have a basic tendency to live a bit longer than normal human beings and to appear younger than our age as compared to most of the normal folk around us. But that may have less to do with us being elven than the fact that we also are inclined to have better diets, to exercise more and in general take better care of ours’elves and our bodies than Men often do theirs. But those things, in themselves, are surely elven traits, and it wouldn’t hurt Men at all to follow our example in this regard and in that way potentially live longer while becoming just a bit more elven. Of course, toning down their aggressive tendencies and their inclination to go to war with nearly everyone about nearly anything, would probably serve to extend their lives as well.”

     “Although, it is rather paradoxical that Men, who frequently think that they have only one life to live, so often treat their bodies with such rough disregard, while we elves, who know ours’elves to be essentially spirit, nurture, value and do our best to preserve our bodies in each incarnation even knowing that we will get another fresh one when our current one is done. Men often take better care of their cars than they do their own bodies. We elves see our bodies as a part of our spirit family, you might say, and we take care of our family, for all our kindred are beloved to us.”

     “And yet, though we do incarnate into fragile human bodies, there is an immortality to the elven, but that is really the case for all beings and is not something that is exclusive to we who are elven as some seem to suppose. It is just that some folks, like Men, have not realized the essential nature of their own immortal being. All of life is eternal. Our bodies are immortal, actually, or really the energy that we have used to formulate these bodies is, although the forms themselves are temporary and changing even as we inhabit them. But once the form dissolves the energy that composed it simply goes elsewhere. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it merely transforms. The key is in learning and achieving the ability to guide that transformation as best we may. Life after life, we develop our abilities, including our ability to successfully inhabit a material body and do so in a way that it will endure, heal and revitalize itself for as long as possible. Trees can live for thousands of years, why can’t we? And the answer is, of course, that we can, but we are still learning how to do so.”

     “Our spirits are immortal, even though they are not exactly the same thing as the transitory personalities that we use to express ours’elves any more than we are actually our thoughts, emotions or opinions. Our ideas, feelings and points of view may change, hopefully will, as we grow more experienced and potentially wise, but our essential nature, the core of our inner being, remains forever the same, although hopefully deepening, in a sense, as our experience, power and potential wisdom increase. We are always ours’elves even when we are not aware of who precisely that may happen to be.”

     “We may go through a period of finding ours’elves, as the expression goes, when we are very young, but finding ones’elf really is a quest for lifetimes and what most people mean by finding oneself is finding one’s place in the world, finding where one fits in or how one wishes to fit into society as it already exists. We may settle on some rather simple notions of our being as we develop into maturity, often falling back into the example that our parents set for us but we are always more than we may seem to be in any particular lifetime and continually evolving toward the greater realization of our beings, whether it seems that way or not. We may go down a lot of dead-ends in our search for enlightenment but those are an education, too. We may wander and meander but when we finally arrive in Elfin we will see that we got there just when we were meant to do so, and the journey, however inconsistent it may have seemed at times, was our path and no other’s.”

     “And certainly, the higher spirits, the Shining Ones who live upon higher dimensions, or more expansive dimensions, you might say, so that they are able to live in our world and yet beyond it, are immortal as compared to our limited incarnations, but even they are in the process of change and transformation, ever in the process of becoming. And while death may be different for them, chosen perhaps, rather than thrust upon them, they still are subject to change. Only it is something they embrace and use, like driving a car we might say, rather than to experience fearfully as most of us tend to fear death as though we are sitting in the backseat as our drunk and half blind grandfather races down the highway. We are, after all, energy formulated by a deep magical consciousness and attaining that consciousness in a more persistent and constant fashion is to obtain immortality. Continuity of consciousness from life to life or body to body or incarnation to incarnation, however you may wish to express it, is immortality in the sense that most of us deem it to be and strive toward achieving. . . . .”

The Spell:

For Elfin’s love does hold me dear”

Excerpt Page 36-39
Chapter 4: Lucid Dreaming, Astral travel, the Body of Light

     “Some folks might question the existence of this deeper consciousness, thinking only the conscious mind exists, just as they question the reality of the Between, but this deeper inner consciousness is also the consciousness that guides people around when they are sleepwalking. They are not in their normal waking consciousness and yet they find their way around quite instinctively. It is this inner consciousness that guides us in the Between most of the time, a sort of sleepwalking that gets us to where we need to go.”

     “So, if that is the case, what is the value of developing lucid dreaming, practicing astral travel and formulating the energetic body of light? If they are essentially unnecessary, why bother to develop these abilities at all? The fact is that we are in this life to learn to master the material world and create enduring bodies that will not die, at least not so quickly at first, and which later will become immortal. Part of the process of doing this is infusing ours’elves and our lives and our worlds and thus our bodies with that very light that we use to create our imaginal bodies, our illuminated bodies. We are becoming enlightened. We are becoming bright. Not just mentally, as this notion is usually taken to mean, not just in our minds, our thoughts, opinions and points of view, but also in our bodies so that we, like the pictures of saints with halos, radiate light all around us affecting the world for the better through our mere presence. We are becoming radiant beings and in doing so mastering the material world.”

     “Part of the process of creating immortal bodies is also the transformation of those bodies into forms that are more and more composed of light, which is to say made of matter in its illuminated essence, and thus, in more than one way, less dense, closer to the source of the energy which composes these bodily forms and thus more enduring. We expand thereby into the fourth dimension, that is we learn to consciously live in four dimensions and not just in three as we currently do Most of us usually live in three dimensions utterly unaware of the potential of our fourth dimensional reality or of our possible and we might say eventual or even destined existence there.”

     “Elfin and Faerie are frequently seen as being parallel worlds that live alongside of what most people call the “real” world but as worlds that exist but are more ephemeral in nature. This is what we are speaking of. Entering Faerie or Elfin isn’t about stepping through a portal into another realm almost exactly like this one but which is elsewhere in space as you might travel from Japan to China and back, although death is that portal in a certain sense. But the goal is to become able to live permanently in that world by making ours’elves and our lives more light-filled, thus vibrating upon the same frequency as the Faerie and Elfin realms. And it is this harmony of vibration that allows us to enter or live within those realms. In vibrating on the same frequency as Elfin, we become attuned to Elfin, which in effect means that we enter Elfin and can live there.”

     “Entering Elfin or Faerie by becoming more illuminated is our quest and becoming more illuminated is also the means for succeeding in that objective. Becoming more elfin is increasing the power and vibrancy of one’s aura, the radiated inner light of our being, which is also to say our aura and our powers of enchantment. And it is by becoming more elfin, more filled with the light of Elfin enchantment, that we create Elfin around us. It is a paradox of Faerie magic that Elfin exists and yet our own existence there depends upon us creating it, or making it real in our own lives..”

And from page 42 of the same chapter on forming your body of light:

“. . . .  See your body as light, formed as you desire, and move in that body. This is just like Olympian athletes who imagine themselves doing their particular sport to increase their skill and performance. Going through the motions in our minds increases our ability to do it in physical space, only in this case, the Between is a very subtle form of physicality. It is form composed of very fine substance. . . . . . . “

The Spell [for developing your body of light]:
“In a body formed of light
My elfin spirit soars in flight”

Arvyndase:
“Ver na miwa qumïn u lun
El’na êldat tari roflu ver fosd”

Pronunciation:
Veer nah my – wah que-m – in loon
Eel’nah l – date tay – rye row-f – lou veer foes-d

PART TWO:

Dealing with Reality and the Practical Application of Spells for Aiding in the Transition through the Between:
Excerpt Page 297-298:
Chapter 29: Enchantment for the First Day, Point One on the Elven Star

     “Listen to my voice, Oh, noble elfae one, …. (and/or say the person’s name and think of them and/or feel their presence), and heed well the blessings I send unto you. After having slept for a time, you are now awakening into the Red Diamond World and you now remember that you are immortal and shall live forever. You knew this previously but had forgotten this truth. While this realization might bring you joy, it may also produce fear in you for the great unknown still looms before you. And everything now seems overwhelming and you are washed away with the tide of the life energy going swiftly you know not where faster than you can think or imagine. Do not resist this flow. There is no need to do so and no purpose in doing so.”

     “However, if you have hated anyone in your previous life, any person or group of people, those individuals will now appear before you, mighty in their visage, threatening in their being and their rage against you, and you will tend to forget that you are an immortal being once more and fear for your survival.”

     “If you flee from them you will reenter the material world seeking incarnation as quickly as possible in whatever portal opens and you will likely be born in the grimlen world among those who live their lives with hate in their hearts and you will be trapped for another life attempting to free yours’elf or be carried away by senseless and unthinking animosity your entire existence there, living in a hell world, often without realizing you are doing so. But this is not at all necessary and you can relinquish your enmity at any moment and fly free.”

     “And heed well, oh, immortal one, these beings that threaten you now are but part of your own being. You need not fear or hate them, for in doing so you are only fearing your own powers and hating part of yours’elf, baring yours’elf from further realization, limiting your enchantments and trapping yours’elf without realizing you are doing so.”

     “Relax. Touch your heart, as I now touch mine, and extend your hand to them in peace, as I extend mine to you, and go on farther into the Between. Be not born again yet, there are better worlds ahead of you and greater powers still to realize.”

     “Now say this chant with me:”

“I do not hate

I do not fear

I embrace mys’elf

And all who are near

We are one in our hearts

And that is quite clear

As the way before me opens.”

[End of Excerpt from Chapter 29!]

Excerpt Page 310-311:
Chapter 36:  Enchantment for the Eighth Day, Between points One and Two on the Elven Star

     “Greetings, noble Shining One, …., you have entered the Lavender Lotus World, and are awash in pleasure. Unlike the second world where nothing you consumed satisfied you, here even the tiniest bit of any food or drink or touch fills you with ecstasy and you need nothing more than a dab of anything. The realms are Glorious and all is awash in magic.”

     “You are new here, and naturally filled with the joy of having ventured into the Higher Realms of Faerie and need do little more at first than relax, enjoy yours’elf and get your bearings. Here is the true Rapture and you are aware that you can now create your body to be or seem utterly as you desire. Create your own form. Change it again, like someone trying on clothes from their closet or in a shop. You may appear exactly as you wish.”

     “And in time, which is different now, so in your own time, you realize you can now fly or levitate, if that is your will. You have the power to inspire others in the world with your thought forms. Especially those who are connected to you of old will be inspired by you, or those who call out to you for aid and it may be that they look upon you as a sort of god, but it would be unwise to fall for this illusion. You are more advanced than they, surely, but still evolving. Be like a loving parent unto them or a kindly and caring elder sibling”.

     “Here you may develop the power of great healing. Shed your healing light upon those of us still struggling and inspire us to live our lives in enlightened and wondrous ways spreading healing in our own lives and by our actions.”

     “Stay in this realm as long as you desire, mighty elfae one, or return to the world if you will to serve or would learn even more or go on further for there is still much to understand and worlds even greater to explore.”

     Listen now to my evocation:

“Oh, Shining One, so great and true

Remember me (us) in all you do

Reach out your heart

Stretch out your mind

So greater worlds I (we), too, will find

And rising through the planes I’ll (we’ll) be

One with you as you are with me (we).”

Do Elves Believe True Love Exists?

May 1, 2020
silver-zardoa2020
“. . . beloved elfin kin, love truly for as long as your love lasts, as long as you are together, or apart, love truly, which is to say s’elflessly, seeking ever the best for the other, and you will find that loving truly is the key to true love.”

      “Elfin sings upon the dawn
and dances through the whole day long
until the night doth gently rise
with starlight cast upon our eyes,
and love abounds and circles ’bout,
and we greet the moon with howling shout.”
—The Silver Elves

Note from the elves! We know that many of you are not able to attend your usual May Day/Beltane/Lei Day celebrations this year due to the need for social distancing, so we have left you below some magical spells to use in your enchantment magic to attract your elfin kindred and to weave the magic of love in your lives for when we can gather together again in celebration (see these spells below in the section about Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way). And in the meantime, we invite you, dear Kindred, to come join our “Magical Books of the Silver Elves” Facebook group, where we may virtually connect and celebrate together. We hope you enjoy the article below and we wish you many Elven Blessings!

Leiday

     As it happens, we are writing this on the Eve of May Day/Beltane (and here in Hawaii it is Lei Day or the celebration of Aloha Spirit and the giving of flowers), which is a bit of a coincidence and for us a synchronicity, which is to say a coincidence that has psychological import and meaning to us. About thirty five years ago, after knowing each other for nearly a decade but being for much of that time separated by time, space and circumstance, we, Zardoa and Silver Flame, were able to get together and have been together, quite delightfully ever since. A short time after we were reunited, we attended a Pagan gathering on Beltane that was organized by the Church of All Worlds and our friends Oberon Zell Ravenheart and Morninglory in conjunction with Forever Forests and our friend Anodea Judith.

      Originally, we had been invited by Anodea and it had been conceived as a free gathering. Somehow in the intervening months between that original invitation and the actual event it had become a pay to attend gathering but we had not been informed and arrived with our crew, which at that time consisted of about a half dozen elf folk and elf friends, not realizing this was the case and thus not having brought the wherewithal to pay for entry. Fortunately, after Zardoa had a quiet word with Oberon, and due much to the kindness of Oberon’s spirit, we were allowed to attend anyway, with a promise to help as best we could with the event. So, Beltane has always been a significant day for us, a sort of anniversary, you might say, of our union and our coming together on a permanent basis, even though we don’t usually celebrate various pagan holidays unless, of course, we’re around our pagan elven kindred. And then we will celebrate whatever they are celebrating.

      And so, does true love exist? Certainly. It can be seen most easily in a parent’s love for their child. Not that all parents love their children, or that all parents even know how to love their children, or love anyone else for that matter for if you can’t love your child it is unlikely you are capable of loving anyone. But if you are looking for true, lasting and abiding love, love where a person will willingly lay down their life for the other, and will otherwise willingly and even eagerly spend their entire life devoted to doing all that they can to help and promote the well-being of that other, then seeing a parent’s love for their child is an easy way to see true love.

      Of course, when most people are asking about true love and whether it exists or not, they really mean romantic love. That question is not whether families can love each other, often despite everything, but can two strangers that come together really and truly love each other? Can you truly love each other if you are not genetically related is the essence of the question, if you started out as strangers? And the answer is, according to the elves, well, yes, it does exist. In fact, such love is actually quite common and easy to observe. There are many people, usually young but not always so who are in love, who fall in love and truly love each other. Surely, a certain amount of infatuation and especially among the younger folk a certain or great amount of lust is involved but none-the-less their love is real.

      It is true that there are those who get together that have ulterior motives, who unite with another and fane love because of a desire for advancement in their career, financial situation or have some other motive, but there are many who are just plain in love with each other, who have become enchanted by each other, cast a spell on each other at the same time and truly love each other.

      But, there is another aspect to this question, which is that usually when someone speaks of true love and wants to know if it is real, that individual also really is asking, can it last? They are not really inquiring about does true love exist, but can true love endure? And, yes, it can. Or perhaps we should say, yes, we can make it last. And by make, we mean magic. Can we magic it to last?

      It is true that love can be fleeting. People who seem deeply in love at one point often wind up seeming to hate each other later. Their love, we are told, has flown away. But the fact that their love didn’t last, doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. True love does exist, but getting it to last does seem to take a bit of effort over time due to numerous factors. The various pressures of the world are usually the most potent among these. Little envious demons hating that you love each other, throwing obstacles in the way of things are one factor, but another is just the fact that life on the material plane can be difficult at times. We’re wading through matter here. It’s thick and slow and makes everything more difficult. We’re not living on the Moon — unless we’re in love — we’re on the Earth and gravity can really suck here at times.

      Still, to the elves, true love is real even if it doesn’t endure. And yet, it can endure, it can last. It may transform, certainly, just as we ours’Elves change in time. It may and, hopefully, will mature. The nature of the passionate bond may mature as well. For if true love exists, and lasts then it will also age, as we do or along with us. It gains a certain patina with age, however, making it even more beautiful.

      So, beloved elfin kin, love truly for as long as your love lasts, as long as you are together, or apart, love truly, which is to say s’elflessly, seeking ever the best for the other, and you will find that loving truly is the key to true love.

Our hearts beat faster it is true;

As elven kindred fill our sight;
But what is there for us to do
But await the night and love most true.”

And if you enjoyed the article above on the magic of true love, we Silver Elves think you may very much enjoy reading some of our Silver Elves books listed below on Elven Magic and Enchantment. Just click on and follow the links (the titles) to read more about them, table of contents and excerpts from each book:

1.) Here is a book to help you feel more at ease in the normal world and includes a couple of chapters on elven courting and romance:

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

by The Silver Elves

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

4whatelfwoulddobig

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

 

2.)Elven Enchantment

The Keys to Elfin Enchantment:
Mastery of the Faerie Light Through the Portals of Manifestation

by The Silver Elves
This is a book of enchantment, for enchanters, revealing the Keys to Enchantment, the true and greatest magic of the elfin folk. It is filled with the philosophy of the elves and how they encounter and subtly transform the world wielding and fulfilling its dreams and desires while guiding it toward a better and more elfin future.

 

3.) And for a book on elven enchantment that includes practical magic to help you attract true love and unite your own community of kindred:

Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic: Using Art-Making for Evoking Elfin Magic and Living the Elven Way by The Silver Elves 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 inHedgewitcheryBook particular, of elven magic and enchantment. 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 spells in total written in both English and the magical language of the Silver Elves — Arvyndase, including Arvyndase pronunciation keys) that you may use in rituals to empower your art and magic with each magical item and creative project.
Example below:
Attraction spell: (for attracting true lovers, elf friends and kindred)
“Like magnets we attract our kin
Lovers true and elven friend.”
(Arvyndase)
“Sylar rakali eli chanae eli’na eldi
Kyêlåfåli lod nar êldata edar.”
(Pronunciation)
Sill – lair ray – kay – lie e – lie chay – nae e – lie’nah eel – die
Key – l – lah – fah – lie load nair l – day – tah e – dare

S’elf Healing Spell:
“Body, mind, spirit and soul
In every way, I am made whole.”

(Arvyndase)
“Miwa, car, tari nar der
Ver lotym yer, El da kordïn loj.”

(Pronunciation)
Me – wah, car, tay – rye nair deer
Veer low – tim year, Eel dah cord – in low-j.

Togetherness Spell: (Use to unite the individuals who are working on the elven home or community process together and draw them closer together.)
“Closer you are bound to me
Now we go from I to We.”

(Arvyndase)

“Veskfa le da cyrnïn va el
Mat eli tas an El va Eli.”

(Pronunciation)
Vees-k – fah lee dah cern – in vah eel
Mate e – lie tace ane Eel vah Eli.

We include in Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic 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 in this book 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.
You may read a bit more about Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic with a few examples of spells from it here.

and also sold here on Amazon UK

 

“If you ask the elves what the greatest magical power is, they will tell you healing, for healing sets everything aright. And if you ask them what healing consists of, they will tell true love, for true love heals all things. And if you ask them what the source of true love is, they will tell you it is the Divine Magic, for the Divine Magic loves all things and eternally seeks their happiness and fulfillment.”
—from Elven Hedgewitchery and Found Magic

 

4.)
Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge
Creating_miraclesBookcoverThis is a book of Elfin Thaumaturgy, of miracle working and wonder creation, although for these elves we much prefer the idea of wonder working and creation to the idea of miracles. We love wonders. We love creating them; we love encountering them. This simple tome will explore the means by which we may do so.

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

—The Silver Elves

 

“Every time you step out the door, you may be risking your life. All the time you remain within, you could be risking your mind. Every time you fall in love, you might be endangering your heart. Every time you refuse to love, you could be depriving your soul. Yet, go or stay, love or not, Life is Eternal, and Elfin ever awaits us.”
—The Silver Elves

“Elfin’s a world that’s born of dreams,
Entwined upon their touching seams,
Creating a world that’s greater still
Where every soul can love fulfill.”
—The Silver Elves
Many people ask us which Silver Elves books to begin reading first and so we say, which ever sounds right to you, follow your elven intuition, as there is really no right order! But if you would like a suggestion, you may wish to begin with one or more of these four books:
1. Through The Mists Of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven
This is our most popular book and one we highly recommend reading by anyone interested in elves and the elven way.
2. The Elven Way:The Magical Path of the Shining Ones This is a companion book to Through the Mists of Faerie, but may be read in any order. It is also a very popular book and a good one to start with.
3. The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie
4. The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves

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

If you are further interested in our magic philosophy and rituals, we suggest that you visit our website and read sample pages and the table of contents of our two volumes (also both available on Amazon) of The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves (volume 1) and here you will find volume 2. In these two books we explore the Elven viewpoint concerning magick and the tools of magic with magical ceremonies that may be adapted for use by modern faerie folk. The two volumes give the complete progression of color magicks and also explore Elven Vortexes and Covens, as well as our theories on calling the directions and dimensions and more.

The information on The Ten Stages, or Colors of Elven Ritual Magic below is taken from the The Book of Elven Magick: Vols 1 and 2, by The Silver Elves. We would like to thank Ileådryn, Sara Isayama, for her beautiful graphic design.

MagicStagesSilverElves

We Silver Elves created this Color Magic system as something fluid and individual. You start with what Color Magic you feel you are drawn to. If you don’t have a preference and are a person who likes things set in order, then start with One. If you are a person who likes to go more by your feelings, then choose first the one you are attracted to and feel you meed in your life. It is said that if you like to look at this in terms of order, one might think of the color sequence above as being akin to something like Maslow’s Heirarchy of Needs, only applied to magic and ritual. For instance, it’s hard to do Healing Green Magic, if one is under psychic attack and therefore one must first defend oneself and place barriers and be in a secure, safe place b

efore one can do any healing. That is why, for example, Black Magic or Protection Magic is placed before Healing Green Magic. Also, “Health” is a perhaps the greatest wealth, which is why Healing Magic comes before Orange Magic for wealth generation, and so forth.

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

The New Dawn of Elfin

February 17, 2020

New DawnCover

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are There Actually Portals to Elfin?

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

2_3_7tinystar

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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:

ArvynSaying

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

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. . .

We are, the all of us, sentient awareness creating forms out of stardust and starlight, energy given form by consciousness.”

tiny_green_7star

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.

Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning The Silver Elves’ views on the nature of the Divine and its expression and manifestation into the world as seen from those cultures that are most connected to and historically expressive of Elven Culture. It is a further development from some of our other books on Elven Philosophy including: Through the Mists of Faerie; A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven;   The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones; and   Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to Our magical Children and opens the adept elfin enchanter to new understandings of the Unfolding of Faerie and

its magic  into the world and our part, as elfin beings, in its expression. The Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples.

Now A Gift For You!!!!!
What Kind of Elf or Otherkin Are You?
And What is Your Elfae or Otherkin Tribe?

For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. You probably know if you are an elf, faerie, or otherkin but now we’ve created a questionnaire in order to help us and you create a narrative together about your specific people and your clan, their personal characteristics, magic, relationship to Nature, and interests. This is our gift to you (free), which we think will be a bit of fun for both of us. Give us five minutes of your time and we will give you a half hour to forty minutes of ours and send you your unique magical narrative. Simply follow this link and the directions on the page: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html

And for further reading on your Elven, Faerie, Otherkin tribe:

otherkinstar_coverelftribesELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin and  FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. Please click on the titles listed above to go to the pages on this blog that are dedicated to each book, where you can read more about them, view excerpts of sample magical narratives and also the table of contents from both books. Elf Tribes contains 150+ narratives of elven tribes, and Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes contains another 150+ narratives of faerie and otherkin tribes. Be sure and click on the title links and read a few of these magical narratives. Perhaps, you will find your people as you read through these two books, or kindred quite like them. At any rate, you can always do the survey yours’elf, or do it again if you feel you have come to a greater understanding of yours’elf and our peoples in the meantime (or gentle-time as we elves often say).

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”)

“We elves are always mystified by other people’s inability to reason. There are things we just cannot discuss with them for they will only get angry and upset if we do so. To these others, the Universe is like a painting that is already completed and should never be touched. To the elves, the Universe is an artwork in progress and we are still adding paint to the canvas.”

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.

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.

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.”
