What is the Elven Point of View about People Choosing their Lives before Birth?

October 6, 2018
faerieUnfolding
“In the long run, all limitations placed upon us in choosing another life, are our own.
It is our own soulful spirit that guides us toward its fulfillment and that chooses
a life most likely to lead toward enlightenment and elevation of our being.”

From an elven point of view, people do choose their lives before birth but there are a number of qualifying considerations of a limiting sort that affect this choice. First, of course, is Karma. Karma, first and foremost, limits our choices. It’s rather like going into a clothing store to buy a new outfit, but one only has so much money to spend, and thus one’s choices are limited. Also Karma requires us to pay back what we owe and thus it reduces the amount of possibilities, the choices we have for another life. Most of the really great lives and situations have been taken by those who’ve earned enough to select them and have the spiritual development to both deserve and embrace them.

When we speak about Karma as requiring us to repay what we owe, this is not so much an external principle to us but an inner one. As we rise in our spiritual development, we are compelled from our inner spiritual soul to repay what we owe, as the more developed we are spiritually, the more we wish to be united with all of life and love is our inner guiding principle. We expand our consciousness to understand on deeper and deeper levels that all spirits are equal in an essential fashion, all are expressions of the Divine Magic.

But this aspect of karma isn’t the only limitation upon us. We are also limited, or perhaps we could say we are afforded greater opportunities by our level of spiritual evolution and development. Obviously, the more enlightened we are, and the more developed we are, (and for elves and fae folk this also means our magical development) the wider the possibilities that are open to us. Enlightenment and magic well used are like money in the bank. The more evolved one is the richer they are in a spiritual sense and thus the greater one’s power to choose from a variety of possible life courses.

But here we run into another and a different set of limitations. Sometimes people choose lives that limit them, or burden them in certain ways for spiritual reasons. An enchanter may be born in a body that is not very good looking in order to develop the powers of enchantment of their personality. Bodhisattvas (Shining Ones) often accept limitations (the very fact that they are choosing to be born into a material body is one) out of compassion to help others. Some souls, out of love for others, take on the burdens, in part, of other people’s karma. They help them carry their baggage, so to speak, in order to uplift them. But mostly we gravitate toward those we love or with whom we have some karmic responsibility to work things out, which in the long run, always means developing the relationship between us.

And this brings us to two other very important points that bear upon one’s ability to choose one’s life before one is incarnated. The first of these is that most of us have yet to develop continuity of consciousness. Continuity of consciousness allows one to retain one’s consciousness and memories from lifetime to lifetime. If you can meditate so deeply that you sleep but remain conscious without thinking then you are there or approaching this state. Most of us, however, are nowhere near this level of development and many people only get bits and pieces of past life memories in their dreams rather than full continuity of consciousness, and our intuition may even fill in the blanks a bit to make a full storyline. However, even these fragments of our past life memories can be very useful to our self-awareness and give us inspiration to continue our meditations.

Without continuity of consciousness, the afterlife, or really the between life state, is rather like a dream. We are usually sort of semi-conscious in a dream but for the most part we are just experiencing the dream, watching it unfold before us and happen to us. If you can lucid dream then you are on the way toward continuity of consciousness. But for most of us, the between life is very dream-like and our choice of another life, another body and a new situation is rather instinctually based. Just as our dreams often reflect our unconscious and the things we are working out in our subconscious, so our choice for a next life is most frequently based upon instinctual desires and motivations. We go to what attracts us. There is actually very little conscious thought involved until indeed we evolve to the level of the Shining Ones.

The other consideration is this. Many folks select a life based upon their basest desires and the fulfillment of unconscious drives affected, quite deeply, by their karma, which is often to say their prejudices, hate, and fears from a previous life. But as we grow spiritually (yet still haven’t yet attained continuity of consciousness), we tend to gravitate toward those lives that we desire that will empower and uplift us. In other words, we naturally choose those lives that help us become who we truly wish to be.

In the long run, all limitations placed upon us in choosing another life, are our own and taking the opportunity to develop spiritually during the life we have presently chosen is key to our future lives. It is our own soulful spirit that guides us toward its fulfillment and that chooses a life most likely to lead toward enlightenment and elevation of our being. We are who we are because of who we are, which is to say who we choose to be. And these elves, choose the life elfin, because that’s who we are.

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 our other books, Through the Mists of Faerie, The Elven Way, and Liber Aelph 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. Come view a sample of Chapter 1 and read the reviews of this book on our website here.

If you enjoyed reading our blog today about karma, then you will surely enjoy reading Creating Miracles in the Modern World on the way of elfin thaumaturgy and developing one’s own being and relationship with the Divine Magic, with the creation of wonders as an effect of that development.

Creating_miraclesBookcover
CREATING MIRACLES IN THE MODERN WORLD: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge shows you that the more we develop our own inner divine nature, the more wondrous we become, and therefore in consequence the more we are able to recognize the subtle wonders of the world and the Universe. Some have written in popular books that there is no such thing as magic. We elves wonder then what they think miracles are if not magic.

Excerpt from Chapter 3:
“When we come to understand and experience that the true nature of the Universe and the Divine Magic is wondrous to its core we begin to release our fear of life (and death) and particularly our fear of failure, knowing that success and wonder are our destiny and the ultimate realization for all our hopes. We also come to understand that the Divine Magic does not judge us nor punish us. Karma is the response of our own souls and spirits seeking perfection. Karma is something that ultimately we are doing to ours’elves. It is an automatic function of the Universe, but it is our magic that has made it so for our magic always returns to us. “

How Do Elves Form Families?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Can We Become Elves?

April 14, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Does It Mean To Be An Elf?

September 14, 2017

Blessings1 copy

For these elves overall, being Elven means creating
a world of wonder and magic where we can be together
in love forever with our beloved kindred.

This is like the questions, what does it mean to be a woman, or what does it mean to be a man, or what does it mean to be a human being. All of which can be answered in innumerable ways by various individuals and still will never encapsulate the entirely of the question. What does it mean to be an elf? Well, first it means that we are spirits who have chosen to manifest as elves. Being an elf is a spiritual choice. That, first and foremost, is the most important thing because being an elf is always about choice. While one may feel that as an individual sHe had no choice but to be born as a man or a woman or to this or that race, these elves think that we are elves principally because we have chosen to be so, we have chosen to be born elves (in human bodies).

The thing is, however, there will certainly be other elfin who feel that they were born as elves and had no other choice but to be elves, and that their birth as an elf was not by their own choice. And while we disagree with this point of view for our own s’elves, we cannot help recognize their right as elves to believe this for thems’elves if that is their wish. Usually, however, we tend to think that people feel forced to believe they are only elven by birth and not choice because they wish to assert their essential elvenness in a world that almost continually seeks to deny their elven being and ridicules them for even daring to think that they are elves. In saying that they were born elven without a choice, they assert their right to be elves no matter what others may think. This is the same dilemma that confronts gays who feel they must assert that they are gay by birth/nature because of those who judge them and say instead that they are gay by choice and have no right to be. But, from an elven point of view, it doesn’t matter if they are gay by birth or not, they have every right to choose to be gay, just as we have every right to choose to be elven.

Still, it seems to us that we choose to be born elven, which is to say, we choose to manifest as elves for we are elven in spirit. And certainly we could choose to deny our elven natures and hide among normal folk. Many of us have tried to do this and a great many of us have failed for while we can sort of pass among them, most elven never quite feel comfortable among the normal folk and they in their turn are never quite comfortable around us entirely either. They usually feel they can trust us once they get to know us, but they are never quite sure what we are (which is something strange and wondrous) and if we told them they wouldn’t believe it anyway. At the same time, the choice to manifest or not as elves is ours. It many ways, it is really about whether we accept ours’elves or not.

In a certain sense this question: what does it mean to be an elf, is really about individuals searching for some definition of elvinness that they can compare thems’elves against. We could say an elf is this or that and they could see if it fits them and thus know if they are elven or something else. But the problem with this is that elves, being the unique and individual beings we are, never fit comfortably into set categories and no matter what you might say about what it means to be an elf, you’ll probably find some elf who says: “well, not this elf.” And again, how could we deny them their right to pursue their elfinness however they may define it. Elfin and Faerie are vast and there is room for everyone in it. Those who don’t accord with our sort of elfin nature will find their way to another part of Elfin. But none are denied and none are rejected. Not by Elfin and not by these elves. Only the individual hir own s’elf can deny hir entry into Elfin. Only the individual can deny and reject hir own elfin nature. The most we can say is that they are different elves than we, and that is surely true of nearly all elves, even our most beloved. The principle that opposites attract holds true in Elfin as well as the rest of the Universe.

But in another sense, the meaning of being an elf depends upon the elf hir own s’elf. ‘What does it mean to hir?’ is the essential question. So the question really is: what does being an elf mean to you? And only you can answer that question and mostly you can only do so by your behavior, your actions, your magic. What you say is not nearly as powerful or telling as what you do.

For these elves overall, being elven means creating a world of wonder and magic where we can be together in love forever with our beloved kindred. Beyond that, it is really up to each one to make of Elfin what sHe will.

What the Elves Say About Themselves — from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves:

“We elfin often have cause to pass through the world of the normal folk, but for us it is like someone swimming beneath the sea. We can swim beneath the ocean and explore the world of the fishes but we are ever aware that it is not our natural environment and we are only ever visitors there.”

“Some people think that we elfin are re-emerging in the world in order to take control. We find this idea laughable. We have not come to control the world but to set it free.”

“What truly defines the elves is our unique and individual beings. There is an exception to every rule and the elves are usually it.”

“Some people speak of half elves or of being part elfin, but we elven do not see it that way. To us, if you are half elven, you are elfin. If you are part elven, you are elfin. If you are a friend to the elves, you are elfin, too. If you wish to be elfin, you are as elfin as you wish to be.”

“In so much as there are elves who exist in human bodies and we can interbreed with man, we can be considered part of humanity, although we prefer to call it “hu-elvity.”

Do Elves Believe in Past Lives?

August 21, 2017

elfstar copy
“Even more importantly, we believe in future lives. And more significant than that, we believe in the possibility of gaining continuity of consciousness….”

     Life is eternal. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. However, the particular forms that energy takes are transitory and, in many ways, ephemeral. The energy that composes our beings is essentially stardust. This sounds poetic, but it is really a scientific fact. Although, from an elven point of view, it is both poetic and scientific. Scientists from our experience are often romantics.

Thus the energy that is at the essence of our being is eternal and from a physical point of view, there is no reason why in the trillions of years of life the energy that came together once to create our being wouldn’t eventually come together again. After all, we have forever. We have explored all this in a number of our books. Faerie Unfolding is particularly recommended.

But when we talk of past lives, what we really want to know is not if the material form that we currently inhabit has been before, we might say conglomerated previously, but that our essence — which most people think of as our soul but we elves would call our spirit — has lived previously, even if in fact as is most often the case, we don’t necessarily consciously remember it having done so.

And so our answer is yes, we believe in past lives. Even more importantly, we believe in future lives. And more significant than that, we believe in the possibility of gaining continuity of consciousness, which is our ability to remember (more or less) through the lifetimes all that we have experienced, although that does seem a bit much. After all, we sometimes have trouble remembering what we did last week, or had for dinner yesterday, so remembering every detail from a previous life seems not only suspect, but unnecessary.

Of course, many of us are not trying to remember our previous lives so much as forget most of the follies we’ve committed and restructure our memories, as we often do about the dead, into a more exciting and pleasing tale, leaving out the nasty, cowardly and mean spirited bits that are not quite in keeping with our aspirations to be more perfect and powerful beings. Thus we say again, we believe in future lives. For a lot of what we’ve been through, we prefer not to remember or at least we’d rather forget and pretend we weren’t capable of being so disagreeable or ignorant. Still, eventually, we must confront ours’elves for who we are as well as who we’ve been in order to clear away all karma from past lives, to set ours’elves free to create Elfin on the Earth and among the Stars, according to our Visions.

So, if you ask, have we lived before? We’ve lived always. But the question is not so much about have we lived, but how well we’ve lived. It’s a matter more of quality than quantity. And the question about past lives isn’t really, have we lived before, but will we live again? And the answer once more is, we are made of stuff eternal and partake of its life, on a journey never ending and Elfin eternal and everlasting awaits us to bring it to life through our lives.

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 our other books, Through the Mists of Faerie, The Elven Way, and Liber Aelph 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. Come view a sample of Chapter 1 and read the reviews on our website here.

Is Being an Elf a Matter of Blood of Genetic Heritage?

July 1, 2017
    Blessings8copy
“….we are primarily beings of spirit, not of matter. We, through the lifetimes, gain the power to choose what sort of body we may wish to manifest in, from whatever bloodline we fancy based upon our own needs, goals or mission that we have to accomplish in any particular life form.”

There are those that proclaim that being an elf is only a matter of bloodline descent and while we agree that there are those who are descended from those people from which the tales of elves seem to originate, we simply cannot agree that elfinness is inherited. Our experience tells us that this is simply not the case. We see elfinness as being of the spirit and not requiring an inherited bloodline. Only the pursuit of the Elven Way, of living one’s life as an elf, is a true indication of elfinness.

Even Nicholas de Vere who makes such claims in his books notes that everyone in the world, or most everyone, is likely to have at least a bit of elven blood in their veins. He contends, however, that his is purer and less undiluted and thus he has the right to consider hims’elf elven, while most others do not. Again, however, he offers us no DNA test results to back this up. While we respect his historical works, we have always taken issue with his exclusiveness when it comes to elfinness. Our belief is that if a person says they are an elf or Otherkin then we believe them. There is no bloodline requirement to be an elf as De Vere asserts, nor would bloodline assure that the person was an elf in spirit, which is the only requirement for being an elf.

Often those who make such claims as being of the elven bloodline present absolutely no evidence that it is so. They expect, like certain modern politicians, that we will accept their declarations without any data and often contrary to known facts. Some give us long genealogical charts but what they don’t give us thus far is the evidence of a DNA test, demonstrating that their blood is as pure as they say it is.

Even if this were so, we’d still disagree with De Vere. If being elven and aspiring to elfin being were simply a matter of heritage then all one’s ancestors would have made such a claim and pursued the path of the Elven and we see no evidence that this is so either.

And even if it were so, even if generation after generation in an individual’s family had proclaimed they were elves, we’d still disagree because as elven beings, we are primarily beings of spirit, not of matter. We, through the lifetimes, gain the power to choose what sort of body we may wish to manifest in, from whatever bloodline we fancy based upon our own needs, goals or mission that we have to accomplish in any particular life form.

To us, the mere fact that one aspires toward being an elf is, in itself, an indication of one’s essential elfinness. Who but an elf would wish to be an elf? And if all things derive from material being, as materialistic minded individuals believe, then why would we wish to be elves and live our lives as elves, if we were not genetically programmed to do so?

And we are also often asked: Even if we accept the idea that you are elves even though you don’t have pointed ears, what about those folks who claim to be dragons, or werewolves or other mythical beings?
It is true that those who claim to be dragons and certain other beings cannot be so in a physical sense, at least at this point, but just as we are elves because of the way we live, so are they dragons because of their inner spiritual longings and natures. This is not totally dissimilar to the fact that we call some men old goats or chickens or some such or that some folks derogatorily call certain women cows or old hens, or that we refer to certain men and women as dogs, although meaning different things in doing so. Besides the fact that these are often meant as insults, it is sometimes also an observation of the individual’s character.

When individuals say that they are dragons, they don’t mean, unless they are totally out of touch with reality, that they have the physical form of a dragon. They mean they spiritually and “imaginally” relate to being a dragon and in the world of the imaginal, a quite powerful world, they are a dragon. We might say that the imaginal realm is a realm that lives within individuals but above and beyond the material world, influencing it subtly but surely.

Since, from an elven point of view we eventually become what we think, imagine and do, our repetitive actions affecting our physical form through the lifetimes, eventually those who think and imagine and act like dragons (hopefully of the creative sort of Asian lore, rather than the destructive sort of western lore) will physically become dragons as well. We just hope that they actually enjoy it as much as they think they will. But if not, then surely, they will in time become something else.

If you like this article, then you most certainly will enjoy our book Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical Children in which we discuss the understanding of elves by spirit and spiritual heritage. Liber Aelph is a message from us, the Silver Elves, to our magical children, grandchildren, children’s children’s children and those who come after, including our own s’elves in future lifetimes. It is a guideline for awakening elves to follow as they proceed into the future and the Age of Faerie to come. Yet, it is not a children’s book, save for those very mature children, the elves who like Peter Pan that refuse to grow up and who look to life with the eyes of a child and the heart of the ever young. It is a book of elfin magic and all elves, awakened or awakening, can gain from its wisdom and wry view of life. You can read sample pages of Liber Aelph here on our website.

We thank Bedivere the Unicorn featured on the cover of this book who was raised by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, author of Grimoire For the Apprentice Wizard and for his mentorship to so many young elves. We also acknowledge on the cover with Bedivere our own two children and our faerie sister Aiea Day, author of The Magic of Art for Therapy as well as a number of delightful children’s books.

Is the Elven Way a Religion?

June 25, 2017

Blessings6 copy

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

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

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

Could there be an elven cult?

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

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

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

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

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

June 3, 2017

BlessingsGreen_Website

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

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

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

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

bannerMagicTalks-1

If you are concerned about the topic of the benevolent evolution of our planet Earth toward becoming a sacred planet, we suggest that you read our books on the Supra-dimensional and Elven Magic, the four Books of Correspondence Between the Silver Elves and the Founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters, beginning with Magic Talks, of which we have already posted a sample of these letters in a previous blog. Then you may also enjoy reading the other three books of correspondence, including Discourses on High Sorcery: More Correspondence Between The Silver Elves and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters .

sorcerers_discourses

Below is a sample page of Discourses on High Sorcery:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE ATTAINMENT OF ARHATSHIP IS MATCHLESS
love
Arwen

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

(Reply from the Silver Elves to letter #14)

As we’ve told you previously…
Dear Arwen,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

July 25, 2014

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

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

Myths about Elfin Magic:

Myth 1: Magic Requires Belief

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

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

Myth 2: Technical Exactness is Necessary

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

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

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

Myth 3: Magic Drains Your Life Force?

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

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

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

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