Beyond Awakening — Further Steps on the Elven Path, Attunement and Annunciation

December 22, 2020

zardoa_christmas2014
Merry Yule from the Silver Elves!

     We Silver Elves identify seven steps or stages on The Elven Way, and even though we could perceive them like steps, they may be both progressive and also simultaneous. As we have discussed previously, the first stage of The Elven Way is the Awakening (see our discussion of the first three stages in our article on this blog dated October 2, 2020: https://silverelves.wordpress.com/2020/10/09/are-there-any-steps-beyond-awakening-on-the-elven-path). The second is Association for it involves seeking of one’s kindred upon the Path, which the Buddhists would call Right Company. This is the companionship of other seekers who reinforce one’s quest by sharing the endeavor to discover and develop each one’s true nature and greater awareness. We could call it the Fellowship of the Elves, but Fellowship seems to have the connotation of maleness and we elves are ever a gender equal society and thus we would be more likely to call it the Frasority of the Elfae. Frasority combines the words for fraternity and sorority and Elfae combines elves, fae and faerie folk and, in our minds, otherkin of all sorts.

     The third stage of the Elven Way is called Activation and involves the empower of ours’elves and our magic as elfae beings. It is the quest to know one’s true s’elf in all its fullness and power and is an ongoing process. One doesn’t move from the third stage to the fourth so much as one includes the fourth step into one’s repertoire, so to speak. As we pointed out in our discussions about the first three stages, all these events can be happening in any order really, or all at the same time, and they are all ongoing events. Although, the Awakening clearly sets them in motion toward otherworldly elfae realization in a dramatic and serious way and is rather like starting the engine of one’s vehicle. The vehicle exists in its entirety at that moment but until one starts it, it is unlikely to go anywhere.

So now let’s take a look at the next two stages of The Elven Way — Attunement and Annunciation.

The Fourth Stage of the Elven Way — Attunement

     Attunement is the fourth stage of the Elven Way, but for some people this was occurring before the Awakening as well as after. Certainly, if one has any intuitive and psychic abilities, which nearly all elfae folk do, then one had moments of Attunement long before that moment when one realized, with sudden clarity, that one didn’t merely see and interact with the otherworld of Faerie from time to time, but was actively a part of it and had always been so. Awakening casts off the spells of sleep and slumber in which the normal world entangled us up, as it wishes us to believe we are just another normal person and of no great significance, instead of the amazing elfae beings we truly are.

     After Awakening, we begin to see the otherworldly around us. This is partially true because we begin living our lives as elfae folk and this, by its nature, is a magic that attracts Elfin and Faerie energies to us. And as we take a concerted step toward Association, this becomes even stronger. For elfae together create a greater and more powerful aura, no matter how powerful one might be as an individual magic wielder. You might be the richest person in the world (or the most powerful magician), but if you join your resources with someone else who only has a little bit of wealth, you are still richer. Elfin takes notice of elves working in concert, whether two or more. We know this to be true from personal experience. And the result of this is stronger and more potent encounters with the otherworldly side of things.

     And because one is seeking to Activate one’s personal magic (stage three) this naturally enhances the effect of Attunement. Living one’s life as an elf, fae, faerie or other naturally increases the faerie magic that surrounds one’s aura. Otherworldly beings from both sides of the veil are draw to one. Even if they are miles away or continents apart from you, they will begin to gravitate in your direction and you in theirs, like magnets attracted to each other.

     This requires balance. Before one Awakens, most otherworldly encounters, while amazing, are usually quickly forgotten, especially since they tend to violate what one has been enculturated to believe is possible in the first place. One sometimes doubts one’s own senses and seeks mundane explanations for something that was truly phenomenal in one’s experience.

     After one Awakens, however, these events and encounters with what some call the Paranormal, are increased, especially those that involve signs and portents from the Faerie realms. And one begins to become Attuned to them, so one doesn’t dismiss them automatically, nor forget them quite so easily. Although, one might still be inclined to forget some of them merely because they are not so uncommon as they once were, and those of a lesser nature often fade from our memories while those of greater import, ones that have some major effect upon our lives, take their place.

     As this happens, we begin to Stand Between the Worlds, as the Witches say, for it is important that we keep both worlds in our mind’s eye. We need to be able to see Faerie and the elfae folk, without losing sight of what the normal folk believe to be real. We experience the world as radiant but we are not unaware that to others it is just as dull and mundane as it ever was, except perhaps, when they were very little children. We become Attuned to the world of Faerie, but we also are aware that others see the world differently, as less wondrous and less of an ongoing adventure, and we interact with each being of each world from their own point of view.

     This is rather like visiting a foreign country with friends and while you speak your language with your friends, you are also speaking the language of the country you are visiting with its inhabitants. So, we speak the language of magic and mysticism with those who understand and we speak quite plainly and often scientifically for those who prefer more mundane explanations. And yet, in doing this, our Attunement to the Otherworldly increases and we do not give up one world for another, as tempting as that may be at times, but increase the dimensions we can see and with which we can interact. It is like someone who is colorblind who suddenly overcomes that limitation. Or suddenly being about to see Ultraviolet or Infrared without any mechanical aid. As this happens, the worlds open up to us as well as the possibilities for our lives.

The Fifth Stage of The Elven Way – Annunciation    

     Once one has awakened to the realization of their true nature manifesting in the world of form as elves, fae, faeries, pixies, brownies or some other, or some combination of other, one sees the world in a new light. One continues to seek friends, lovers and family, only now one especially reaches out toward one’s elfae family, those who share the Path with ones’elf.

     And each of us still endeavors to make ours’elves stronger, more magical, more resilient and better in every possible way on every level of our being from our physical form through to our feelings, relationship interactions, minds, souls, spirits and all else, the whole of our being. This is vital to the Elven Way and something that most of us were doing before we awakened, only these efforts are now informed by the understanding of our otherkin nature. This understanding and realization expands and increases our awareness of ours’elves and the levels and dimensions that we can develop within and upon.

     This process puts us into contact with the energy and energetic beings of Faerie and Elfin and the Otherworldly in general. Psychic occurrences and the appearance of signs, omens and visions become more common, although still often amazing in their presentation. And we endeavor to become Attuned to this new, more magical, mystical and phenomenal realm in which we dwell, and which we now realize we’ve always lived within, without losing sight of the manifestation of the dominant world and its paradigms around us. As much as many of us would like to disconnect from that world, the world of Men and the normal folk, doing so at this point can have serious consequences that are not usually to our liking.

     And even more difficult, in its way, is being able to distinguish between what is really true concerning Faerie and Elfin and the other worlds and dimensions and what is merely the mental constructs of the normal world that have been painted over with glitter and a veneer of magic in order to look like they are of Faerie when, in fact, they are truly not.

     We simply can’t carry the prejudices, dogmas and doctrines of the world into the Faerie Realms. It is not that it is not allowed in the sense of it being against the rules, but it is simply not possible. Our baggage from the normal world just won’t pass through the portal and thresholds into Faerie. And if we cling to them desperately, as some elfae seem determined to do, we as individuals can’t enter Faerie either unless we let go of them. But then, there is no hurry really, except our own sense of urgency and feeling of wishing to escape from this mad world of Men, and when we do enter those realms we will realize that we arrived at the precise moment that was right for us to come and always destined to be.

     When we have traveled this far upon the Way, we then usually come to the stage of Annunciation. Not all folks enter this stage, although many do. Some may skip it altogether. It is not a necessary stage in an individual sense, although it is important to the elfae peoples overall, and not all who set out to fulfill this stage are, at first, adept at doing so, but then adeptship comes with time, effort and practice. The more we do it and the more we seek to improve what we do, the better we get.

     Annunciation has to do with Speaking One’s Truth, particularly when it concerns one’s otherworldly life and experiences. It is one of the ways that we connect with others of our kind and thus is an aspect or technique of Association. And it is one of the ways that we aid those who are as yet unaware of their true nature or afraid to even embrace the fact or notion that they are elfae of some sort. It helps our others to Awaken to their essential being and begin treading the Path, thems’elves.

     Some us, like we Silver Elves, Annunciate in magical elven tomes such as these writings here. But most elfae, beyond personal communication and posts and interactions on social media, seek to write Elven and Faerie and otherworldly stories of a fictional sort. Usually, they are inspired by Tolkien and his great works concerning us, but also by other writers as well and sometimes by video games or games such as Magic the Gathering or D&D type games.

     Our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters use to say that if we elves had saints, in the manner of the Catholic church, Tolkien would surely be our primary one. While he was Catholic by faith, he was otherkin by manifestation as far as we elfin are concerned and will ever hold a place in our hearts and minds and the history of our peoples.

     Annunciation helps our kin to find each other. To Awaken to their true natures through the evocation of their minds and imaginations. For the imagination takes the mind and fills it with soulful feeling, just as music does, and lifts us up out of the everyday world to which the normal folk would like to bind us with their mundane magics, and sets us free to soar across the realms touching our kindred and uniting with them wherever we may. Speak Your Truth, kindred, if you dare, Speak Your Fae Truth.

Are There Any Steps Beyond Awakening on the Elven Path?

October 9, 2020

“We elfae are soulful beings and the power of our souls increase with our growing and increasing relationships to each other. . . . after one’s Awakening as an elfae being, one’s life not only takes on a more spiritual dimension but a very otherworldly dimension is added, as well. All we do becomes overshadowed by our elfin natures and the world as we see it becomes gradually transformed so we are seeing it in a new way. . . . One certainly continues to perfect one’s skills as an artist, musician, writer, archer, auto mechanic or carpenter, etc., as one did before Awakening to one’s elfin nature but a spiritual dimension is added to one’s efforts. This is rather like the notion of Zen . . . Here a spiritual dimension is added to one’s material efforts, a greater consciousness that involves the worlds of energy and spirit and not merely the material realm.”

2_3_7tinystar

In the article below, we speak about the first three out of seven steps on the elven path or as we Silver Elves call it, The Elven Way: Awakening, Association, and Activation.

Step One and Two of The Elven Way:

AWAKENING and ASSOCIATION

Awakening is the most commonly spoken of and probably the most noted aspect of The Elven Way. This is so principally because Awakening is the first movement on the path and it also tends to be life transforming for the individual, and therefore highly memorable, at least for a time. For it is often, but not always, accompanied by a profound sense of having finally discovered ones’elf, of having come home to one’s true home and family, in a sense, and frequently stirs one’s feelings and imagination powerfully and both at the same time, which makes it doubly effective.

     This powerful sense that those who awaken to the elfae nature sometimes get that which one has waited one’s entire life for this moment is psychologically profound. But at the same time, it is the very potency of this experience that makes it somewhat fragile. One expects, in a certain sense, that these powerful feelings will last forever, but in time the dull magics of the normal world that were created to lull us into a sleep so we no longer remember who we really are and to glamor us into thinking we are other than we are, works incessantly at us, projected by the normal folk around us. And few elves who are at that point and are elfae alone in the world, are able to resist these dark magics, although, it has been done, obviously, or none of us would be aware at all.

     Therefore, the next step upon the Elven Path is usually that of Association. In some ways, this is really the first step, because most of us become aware of our elfae and otherkin nature because of our association with others and it is this link to others who are already awakened that leads to our own awakening. And yet the Awakening is so powerful usually that it eclipses the relationships that led to it.

     At the same time, the truth is that Association is so important to most elfin beings that it not only comes before most awakenings, and directly after, but is the central pivot of our society ever onward throughout time. We elfae are soulful beings and the power of our souls increase with our growing and increasing relationships to each other.

     The reason Association is seen as the second step upon The Elven Way, rather than the first, is that prior to Awakening, while one might have elf friends and be an elf friend, one doesn’t actually realize that one is really an elf or fae or whatever and due to that one doesn’t usually understand that those elfae with whom one associates are really what they claim to be, which is elfin beings. Thus, although one may, and most likely did, know elfae folk prior to Awakening, one simply hasn’t taken that very important step and set ones’elf upon the Path, as yet, and, most likely, sworn an inner oath to ones’elf and one’s spirits to remain awakened thereafter throughout time till Elfin manifests in the material world and beyond.

     As we say, the event of Awakening is often due to one’s interaction with other Elfae, however, many relationships in the realms of the otherworldly can be quite fleeting. Often the ones that inspire one to awaken are actually living at a distance. One interacts with them through various social media, or one meets them at a gathering or other event and quite often they abide at such a distance that it is hard to see them often. And, as much as one would like to join with them immediately, practical reality and the needs of surviving in the world do not always allow this to occur. We are restrained by some dark spells of the world and it is these we strive to overcome.

     And, the fact is that elfae relationships can be quite fleeting anyway. We come and go interacting with each other, moving about upon the Great Faerie Rade, migrating here and there, and it can be hard to find a stable elfae community. Which is why, in part, the first movement in association is toward finding soulmates or starmates, our others with whom we can share an intimate relationship and share the Path together as well. Someone that we can count on, who can also count on us. Creating an elven or elfae community often depends upon a pair of elfae who are the central core of the association. It doesn’t have to be just two, of course, and the goal is to gather more, but a pair it often is.

     Still, elfae folk will come and go and this is important to understand. The inner frasority may remain, hopefully will, but those who obit around us sometimes fly off into space and others take their place. Some are very intensely devoted for a while. Usually, this is after they have recently awakened, but then they spin off elsewhere, frequently only to return again at a later time, a bit wiser for their experience and, in their way, really even more dedicated The Elven Way although less intense in their dedication. What they lose in emotion and fervor, they gain in stability.

     It would be nice if, as elfae folk, we all got along with each other perfectly. Alas, that is not the case. There are natural differences of personality for one thing. Not everyone is meant to be with every other elfae being. We get along better than most of those in the normal world, but still we have our differences.

     And surely there are issues of our own psyche and spirits and soulful natures to work out. We are not perfect beings, but rather spirits perfecting ours’elves. And the various things that plagued us in the world are still with us and need to be worked out. That is, in part, what the Path is all about, developing ours’elves as spirits.

     The need some of our kin feel for personal acknowledgement and recognition is understandable. Many wish to be seen as experts on Faerie lore and our culture, and present thems’elves as such, which as we say is perfectly understandable, but this needs to be done without diminishing others.    

Our job as prominent beings in the modern elfae community, if we dare take on that responsibility, is to empower our others rather than lift ours’elves above them. If we are to be uplifted, it will be done by our others, not by ours’elves. Association draws us to our others and sets us down equally together, sharing the love and magic of Elfin with all who dare to step upon and tread the Path with us.

2_3_7tinystar

Step Three of The Elven Way: ACTIVATION    

As we have explained above, there are seven primary steps or stages upon The Elven Way. The first of these is the Awakening and the second we Silver Elves call Association. As we have already pointed out, Association is really an ongoing activity and is occurring even before one’s Awakening happens. The difference is that after one’s Awakening, one begins to knowingly seek association with one’s kindred and others in light of one’s growing awareness of one’s Elfae or otherkin nature, where previously one sought one’s kindred without really knowing that it was elfae that one was seeking.

     So, while one puts out feelers toward association often hoping for a soulmate before one experiences one’s Awakening, the Awakening transforms the nature of the quest for Association, which is why it is seen as the second step upon the Elven Way. One’s field of search has narrowed but now one knows what one is really searching for.

     The third step upon The Elven Way is Activation. And once again, this is something that was happening prior to one’s awakening and continues afterward. In some ways, these steps upon the Path are not entirely sequential but simultaneous. Still, there seems to be an emphasis that aligns them in a seemingly sequential order. Yet, it is good to realize that almost all of these steps are really taken together. They are like a group, band, pack, covey or vortex of elves walking through the woods together. One may lead at one point, another at some other time. One may speak, then another will replay, and then another still. Yet, they are all moving together in reality. So, too, all these stages are happening at once and sequentially, also. We put the emphasis on one stage at one moment and another after that and back again.

     Activation has to do with the development of our powers as individuals. Surely, everyone who isn’t racked and incapacitated by the dark spells of depression hope to succeed as individuals in the world and in seeking to succeed endeavor to improve what they do and how they do it. Surely, this was happening before one’s Awakening and it certainly continues after one’s Awakening. In fact, in many ways, this is central to the Elven Way, for evolving as elven spirits and becoming more enlightened and powerful as individual beings is what the path is all about.

     The difference between Activation before the Awakening and afterwards is that we are not only aware of our various abilities and are striving to improve them but also we are increasingly aware that in being elves, fae and others that there are otherworldly powers that we can draw upon and wield as magicians, witches and enchanters. Or wizards, sorcerers, shamans or whatever combination of magics one might do. For many elfae folk explore nearly every sort of magic and are proficient in more than one technique or school of magical endeavor.

     One certainly continues to perfect one’s skills as an artist, musician, writer, archer, auto mechanic or carpenter as one did before Awakening to one’s elfin nature but a spiritual dimension is added to one’s efforts. This is rather like the notion of Zen and the Art of Auto Mechanics (see Robert Pirsig’s book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel). Here a spiritual dimension is added to one’s material efforts, a greater consciousness that involves the worlds of energy and spirit and not merely the material realm.

     So, too, after one’s Awakening as an elfae being, one’s life not only takes on a more spiritual dimension but a very otherworldly dimension is added, as well. All we do becomes overshadowed by our elfin natures and the world as we see it becomes gradually transformed so we are seeing it in a new way. Along with being a musician, we are learning patience. Along with being a writer, we are developing our charms and enchantments. Along with our efforts to become better archers, we are aiming for the increase and development of our soulful natures and ability to focus our magical intentions. We seek to improve our various skills, but also our willpower, our intellect, our imagination, our capacity to feel and communicate clearly and truly, our ability to have faith in the magic when it is working in the unseen realms and our ability to see the subtle signs telling us that the magic is indeed spreading out and causing effects in the world, although the end and desired result of our efforts may not have entirely occurred as yet.

     Perseverance becomes vital at this point, because while the Awakening is often dramatic to the point of being astonishing, and Association has its “moments” that we share and sometimes its peak points when we meet one of our true kindred, Activation can be a long slow day-by-day slog toward our goals with little to show for our efforts but the occasional realization that we have somehow, seemingly magically, transformed for the better. We find our skills have improved on all levels but are not always sure when that occurred. And inevitably, especially as we increase our abilities, we will be better at some  things one day and seem to devolve in our ability later. Again, the difference is perseverance. If we don’t give up the path, our powers will increase upon all levels over time, just not all at once and not always consistently at first. Consistency comes with practice.

     And the consequence of this effort (which is energy, which is magic) will be that the spirits of Elfin and Faerie take notice of us. They will seek to improve us as well, lending their powers to our own until we realize that we are never elves or faeries alone but fae folk together through the ages and through the dimensions and throughout time, lifetime after lifetime now and forever more.

(We will be discussing the last 4 steps in the Elven Way in a future blog article and more about these seven steps in our upcoming Silver Elves book Visions of Elfin, to be published in early 2021.)

6throughmistsweb

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.

elvenwayweb

3. The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie
This is not the Norse Runes but our own original elven rune divination system. It consists of 40 runes. The book is 130 pages with photos and illustrations that feature each rune and explain the rune system, how to make your own set of runes (runestones not included), and the interpretation for each of the runes.

4. The Book of Elven Magick: The Philosophy and Enchantments of the Seelie Elves (see both Volume 1 & 2)

5. The Magical Realms of Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path.

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.

And Now A Gift For You!!!!!!
What Sort of Elf, Faerie or Other Are You?
What is Your Magical Tribe?

For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. Now we’ve created a questionnaire to help us do so and to help you learn about your people, your magical tribe. This is our gift to you (free). Simply follow this link below and the directions and we will help you with your own personal narrative about your magical tribe.

And for further reading . . . .

And if you would like to explore an elven perspective of esoteric lore, 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 Daughter (there is no particular order in which you need to read). Each of these four books are a collection of letters with dominate themes of sorcery, the Manu, the Shinning One who is the inspiration for the evolution of humanity in this age, Esoteric Buddhism, Elven magic and culture, Tolkien, the supra-dimensional and necromancy.

What Makes an Elven Home?

September 1, 2020
“. . . what makes an elfin home is the magic of our shared love which encourages everyone who lives there and those who come to visit to be who they truly are in the best way that they can in harmony with Nature, the Universe and all others as much as they can manage at that time to be.”

     It is certainly not about the decor, although we elves love to decorate our homes, but rather it is about the spirit of the home. And the spirit of our home, our eald, our elven home, is something that we take with us where ever we go. We Silver Elves have taken Eldafaryn (Elf Haven, the name of our home) with us across a continent and back. We take it when we cross oceans and it has shifted with us, moved with us, as elven homes do, into houses, condos, apartments, a school bus, and a van. You can even find it with us in hotel rooms.

     Some of the decor and most of our teraphim (spirits of our home and our mystical elfae family) go with us when we make a move. Occasionally, a teraphim decides not to make the journey, or leaves in the midst of it. We know this because the form or statue they were occupying breaks as they depart. This happens, we feel from knowing these spirits well, that they have become so very close to the trees and nature there, that they prefer to stay in that environment. But this happens seldom, however. Most of our teraphim enjoy living with us and continue to do so where ever we journey. The appearance of our new residence may change somewhat, just as we change our raiment from time to time, but the spirit that resides within it stays essentially the same, except it is more evolved, more powerful and illuminated by our previous experiences.

     But most of all, the spirit of our elven home travels with us because it exists within our own hearts and our soulful connection to each other and fills whatever abode we may settle in, for however long, with the magic of our togetherness, our mutual elfae being and the love that we share.

     It is true that some elfae are alone in the world. And if we understand them correctly, there are far more who are alone than who wish to be. Many elfae and otherkin tell us that they are loners, but we’ve come to understand that in most cases this just means they have yet to find their own kindred, and that they feel surrounded by the critical gaze of the normal folk who are ever judging everyone, including each other, for not being quite good enough. Yet, it is rare for elfae to truly be loners. We may be, many of us, quite introverted and somewhat disinclined toward large groups, or even when in large groups still prone to sit back and observe for the most part, but nearly all elfae seek their true kin and upon finding them know that something that they have hungered for, seemingly forever, has finally come about.

     We have often had our elfae friends who visit us after a move say, “Yep, this is still Eldafaryn.” Which, of course, it is. The decorations may have changed somewhat and their location in our home may have shifted, and objects that we had in storage may have now come out and others have replaced them in the secret sleepy realms of awaiting, but the spirit is the same.

     Of course, we love the cozy decor that you see in elven and hobbit homes in movies that have rounded doors and archways, vines growing inside and out, lace curtains, beautiful woodwork with Celtic-type knotwork designs throughout and plants everywhere. It is all so beautiful and inspiring. And if we could afford such a place we would surely embrace it with all our hearts.

     However, even if we had a place such as Rivendell to live in, that wouldn’t make it an elven home without the spirit of Elfin to awaken it from within, any more than a person who puts on a suit, no matter how expensive it may be, is necessarily a good and successful business person. For what makes an elfin home is the magic of our shared love which encourages everyone who lives there and those who come to visit to be who they truly are in the best way that they can in harmony with Nature, the Universe and all others as much as they can manage at that time to be.

And here is a quote from our Silver Elves book Through the Mists of Faerie: A magical guide to the wisdom teaching of the Ancient Elven that explains the true and deepest meaning of Elven Home:

“This feeling of Eldataelum, of Elvenhome, which often comes to us and feels like it is a memory from our childhood, of ancient times, of future possibilities, and the sense of magic we had as children, is another meditation for the Elfae, a deeper meditation born of feeling rather than mental chatter. This sense of being at home at last, this sense of childhood magic, is a communion with our Soul, and by holding this feeling gently within us we begin to vibrate that energy out into the world.”

“. . . it can be inconsistent at first. The feeling comes and goes as it will and we can but focus on it, sense it really, hold it gently and delicately within us as we would hold a fragile bird, and carry it with us as long as we can. Usually the concerns of the world, the circumstances of our life banish it soon enough, but having felt it a few times we begin to get a greater sense of it and in time we can summon it at will. We become the energy of Elvenhome; we are the Living Vibration of the Voice of Elfin calling to other elves in the world.”

. . . . and here below is a book to help you feel more at ease in the normal world!

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

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.

Gaea de las Aguas writes on Amazon in her review of What An Elf Would Do:

4whatelfwoulddobig


“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 withpolishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

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

“Elfin is like an island across a great vast sea. To get to it you can either sail or fly. To sail you can use the vessel that is your soul. To fly you need the wings of your spirit. The ship of your soul is your love of all things elfin, the wings of your spirit are the faith you have in your own true s’elf and your willingness to make it real. It does not matter entirely how you get there, but if you be elven in your soulful spirit, get there you must.”

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.

you may enjoy reading: The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

“The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known
into the forest of the unknown
illuminated by the glow of the elves.”
(From the cover below)

elvenwaywebThe Elven Way: 
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.”

“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.”

How Do Elves Effectively Interact with the Shining Ones?

July 6, 2020

shiningonephoto

“. . . .the Shining Ones are conceived of by we Silver Elves as spirits who have progressed through the process of evolution. And in doing so and through great effort and devotion to development of their being and quite often personal sacrifice on the behalf of others, the Shining Ones have ascended into the subtler yet more expansive dimensions of spiritual being.”

     The Shining Ones for the elves and elfae folk are the equivalent of what most people think of as angels, or what Tolkien would have called the Ainur, which consisted of the Valar and the Maiar. Tolkien’s is a somewhat simpler derivation of the Angelic Hierarchy in traditional Christian angelology, consisting of Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions or Lordships, Virtues or Strongholds or Authorities, Principalities or Rulers, Archangels and Angels. Note, angels are the lowest of the hierarchy with Seraphim being the highest.

     We say the Shining Ones are similar to angels . . . except, instead of the Shining Ones being individuals who were created by some god as is (like in both Tolkien’s and the traditional Christian view) and are thus never changing and are merely representing powers that are obedient (for the most part) to their god’s will, the Shining Ones are conceived of by we Silver Elves as spirits who have progressed through the process of evolution. And in doing so and through great effort and devotion to development of their being and quite often personal sacrifice on the behalf of others, the Shining Ones have ascended into the subtler yet more expansive dimensions of spiritual being.

     So it is that we could interact with the Shining Ones in the way many religious folk communicate with their chosen or inherited deity, saint or angel through the use of prayer, burning candles, creating a magic table (what most folks would call an altar) and so forth, pleading for their intercession into some aspect of our lives. And waiting and trusting an having faith that they will help us.

     From an elven point of view, praying is merely a form of spell casting, although generally with a more whiny and subservient attitude rather than the more confident and will-backed power that is generally used in conjuration. The religious use of magic is along the lines of oh please won’t you do this and the magical view is more we have confidence that this will be done and in your ability to do it. At the same time, we Silver Elves are rather fond of candle burning, magic tables set for various purposes and gifts to the spirits that we seek a relationship with. This is rather like the fact that if we are invited to someone’s house to dinner we might bring a dessert or a bottle of wine, or if we invite them, as we invite the Shining Ones into our lives, we provide the meal for them as our honored guests. We wish to reciprocate for their positive influence in our lives and let them know that we appreciate them and seek closer union and friendship.

     Of course, one could use our book An Elfin Book of Spirits and evoke or invoke the Shining Ones who are listed in that tome in an informal fashion or use ceremonial magick (see our Book of Elven Magick, volume 1 & and also volume 2) in order to draw their attention to one’s life, one’s struggles and one’s aspirations. And we Silver Elves have certainly done this in our lives and continue to do so from time to time when need, vision or purpose arises. We are essentially elven hedgewitches (see our book Elven Hedgewitchery And Found Magic) and our magic is very eclectic, impromptu and ad hoc most of the time.

     Ultimately, however, the Shining Ones are not interested in our prayers nor are they all that interested in our devotion to them. They are not interested in having their egos fanned. Rather, they seek to encourage us to develop the powers and skills that they have obtained, or one’s similar that are suited to our individual natures. We do this by following their example, devoting our own energy to making our own lives better and the lives of those around us and most importantly attempting to develop our own s’elves in every conceivable way.

     It is this concerted attention to improvement, combined with regular and consistent practice and action, that best connects us to the Shining Ones and truly draws their attention toward us and their blessings upon us and our lives. Prayers and incantations, evocations and invocations are not ineffectual entirely, they simply tend to be less effective than direct action. In some ways, for the Shining Ones, they are like commercials one might see on television or even a billboard or even that one gets in one’s snail mail or email that most of which gets immediately consigned to the trash.

     Real action, on the other hand, makes the Shining Ones stand up and pay attention. Just as we tend to pay attention to those we see who are actually doing something. Even if they are not doing it entirely well, we are inclined to watch and perhaps moved to offer suggestions as to how to do things better if, indeed, we have any or know what we are talking about. For there are those in the world who are ever eager to give advice about things of which they have little or no knowledge at all. The Shining Ones, however, have been through it all thems’elves and they know what they are talking about and have the power to back up their advice with energy.

   Make progress in your own spiritual life, dear Kindred, which is to say the life of your spirit, empowering yours’elf in every positive way and the Shining Ones will surely pay heed, nod their approval and do what they can to assist you. And then signs, blessings and magic will just seem to come your way, seemingly by accident, although this will be no accident at all. Synchronicities will occur as they do when one is on their true path and following what we elves call The Elven Way.

THE SHINING ONES:
The Elfin Spirits That Guide You According to
 Your Birth Date and the Evolutionary Lessons They Offer 

The Shining Ones don’t really guide our lives individually but rather offer us lessons in magic and evolution as individuals, which is to say they have many students but tailor their teaching to the needs, aspirations and visions of each one. They are teachers who offer instruction and the courses you are offered are based in part on the day you were born, the period of the month and the month you were born in. Or really, you were born on a certain day because you are assigned to a certain required course. If you wish to further you relationship with those High Elven spirits who have gone before us, this book will help show you the way.

In reading this book, you will find that there is both a Shining One for each month, as well as a Shining One for each ten degrees of the zodiac, as well as a Shining One for each degree. Be sure and read all three of these that are associated with your or your loved ones particular birth date. For some excerpts and more about this book, please go to: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAshiningones.html

“To traditional magicians, spirits are either demons to be compelled or powers to be implored; but to we elven the spirits are our friends, colleagues and kin, who are not only inclined to help us, but also easily persuaded to do so.”

And for your Magic evoking or invoking the Shining Ones . . . . An Elfin Book of Spirits: Evoking the beneficent powers of Faerie by The Silver Elves

An Elfin Book of Spirits:
Evoking the beneficent powers of Faerie

An Elven Book of Spirits contains 360 spirits with their sigils (sigil drawings are included) and descriptions that help one understand their powers and how they can best be magically evoked for one’s positive use and benefit. We Silver Elves find that this book is one of, if not the most, valuable magical references of Elven Shining Ones for our magic.

Excerpt below from page 11 of An Elfin Book of Spirits:

How This Book [An Elfin Book of Spirits] Came to Be

“Back in 1981 we were thinking about moving to California from Florida where we were living at the time. We wanted a spirit to help us do this but didn’t find one that seemed appropriate to our needs among those in the grimoires and books we had at the time. Zardoa went searching for the right spirit in the Elfin realms of the astral and imaginal planes of being and encountered Migrashea, who was the first spirit from this book that we called and who, within six months, had us successfully relocated in California.”

“Migrashea introduced us to Zorafina whose expertise is bringing the right people together and she guided us to other spirits as we needed them. But it wasn’t until 1985 that we decided to create a grimoire of spirits for our use. Again, Zardoa went exploring on the subtle planes looking for spirits with Zorafina as a guide. However, as before, he didn’t merely look for every spirit he encountered to put in the book but had a list of talents, abilities, powers and needs and looked for the spirits who could best fulfill them. In most cases, as in life in consensual reality, one spirit led to another and most of the spirits were found by reference and introduction from other spirits.”

“We cannot say that we have called and utilized the services of every spirit in this book, however, in the past thirty plus years we have called well over a hundred of them (there are 360 in the book in all) for various purposes and have found them to be in every case both reliable, absolutely trustworthy and effective in their efforts on our behalf.”

electrostar2green2@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 in which to read them (you may view all 50+ of these on our author Amazon page here for the USA and here for UK)! But if you would like a suggestion, you may wish to begin with one or more of these books listed below:
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, volume 1, explores the Elven viewpoint concerning magick and the world, and traditional spiritual and religious myths. It covers all the color magicks, the tools of magic, and gives magical ceremonies that may be adapted for use by modern elves, magicians, and faerie folk. The Book of Elven Magick, The Philosophy and Enchantments ofthe Seelie Elves, Volume 2, continues the progression of the color magicks and proceeds on into the nature and establishment of the Elven Vortex/Coven, using mudras and tattoos in magic, using mantras in magic, our theories on calling the directions/dimensions, magical words of power, and much more. It is the completion of and companion to volume 1.

We also suggest that 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.

What is Elven Reawakening?

June 5, 2020

Zardoa_magic

“In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. . .  We have  been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality. . . . another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. . . . . . “

tiny_green_7star

We Silver Elves have spoken of Awakening, which is when someone realizes, often quite suddenly and frequently unexpectedly, that one is elven or fae or other of some variety, and elves are all about variety. We’ve heard and read many tales of various elves’ experiences with their Awakening, but almost nothing is ever said about Re-Awakening, which is also an elven phenomenon. So what is Re-Awakening?

In a sense, every awakening is a re-awakening. How can that be? Well, everyone, or at least nearly every elf or fae who awakens, is awakening because of something that is deep within them. Memories of past lives sometimes flash before their consciousness. And often, not so much memories as feelings of our lives in the past or our elven heritage. We have been elves before. We have been elves forever and the Awakening is often just a realization of this reality.

One might wonder then why we don’t just come into this life knowing, from the very beginning, that we are elfae of some sort, but there are several reasons why this doesn’t often happen. First of all, it is a simple truth that the vast majority of us are just not advanced enough to have obtained continuity of consciousness and come into this life with complete recall of our previous lives. For most of us such memories are fragmentary at best, often fanciful and mixed liberally with imagination.

But there is also some significance to such forgetfulness and that is it allows us to encounter the world purely at first, with a fresh unprejudiced eye and this initial encounter with the world often serves as a sort of inoculation for the elfae. We get a good dose of it and are thus protected from its madness.

In each life we come in anew, as our sages have often advised us to do, looking at the world with the eyes of a child, and we see the world as it currently is before we then awaken and remember and compare it to our previous and ancient lives as elves. Such comparisons usually are not favorable to the current state of the world, but we are always hoping that one day we will come into a world that is quite like our ancient elven realms or so close that our efforts to establish Elfin on Earth will bear great fruit.

But there is another sense in which we use the term Re-Awakening and that is concerning those Elfae who have wandered from the path and then returned with their faith renewed. They, in that sense, Re-Awaken their realization of their elfae nature. This Re-Awakening is usually much less dramatic than their first Awakening in this life, or as we say, perhaps their first Re-Awakening in this incarnation.

Why they wandered from the elven path usually has to do with the fact that we elves are few and far between in the world at this time. We Silver Elves don’t offer our kindred what they have often come to expect from the world that they were raised within, which is to say, rules, authoritarian leadership and preciseness. We tell people to think for their own s’elves, to create their own unique ‘ealds’ (elven home/space) and to decide for their own s’elves what they truly wish to be and inherently are. But as much as the newly awakened often wish for more directive guidance, it just isn’t good for them in the long run. The habits (hobbits?) of the world will not serve them in Elfin.

Of course, there are those who just came to us in the first place because this, that, or some other book or movie about elves stirred some little part of them that is elfae. But in time their excitement faded and they lost interest and wandered off elsewhere looking to continue the thrill. This is rather and actually very much like relationships and romances.

We often begin relationships with a bang, so to speak, and everything is exciting in the beginning. But if we move toward commitment in any fashion, that is to say we strive to sustain the relationship, then the work begins. The thrill that initiated the relationship has often faded and the day-to-day effort to keep the relationship alive comes to the fore. Some folks when faced with this reality merely move from one relationship to another, ever trying to experience that thrill again.

And this is often the same with those who come to us through a fad. They loved the thrill but the effort to continue their life in Elfin is just too much for them. They are just not developed enough in their elfae s’elves to continue on their own, and alas the support network that would help them do that just doesn’t exist as yet.

But this does not bother us. We nurture all our kindred as best we may, when they first awaken, when they re-awaken and even, if they allow us to do so, when they wander off. We are ever here for them. Ever here for each and every one of you, dear sisters and brothers. But what we have to give and offer isn’t always what people imagine or expect. We have but simple elven magic and blessings for you and they are ever freely given and you are always welcome to them and welcome here in Elfin.

“The Philosophy of Elfin Folke”

March 26, 2020

PanphotoCircle
Illustration by Wahaba Nuit Cat

“. . . when left to ourselves (faeries, pixies, elves, and our kin), we most prefer to celebrate Spirit by Dancing the night away and chanting the names of the Stars.”

During this time of “Staying Home” due to the Coronavirus bunker down period, we are typing out to share with you some of our old The Silver Elves articles from the 80s that we published in Circle Network News back when it was a very popular go-to Wiccan-Pagan publication (newsprint copies published prior to Winter of 1986 are now archived and unavailable to the public). After we Silver Elves migrated to the Utmost West, we don’t have the entire collection of all our published articles now archived from Circle. We do have a number of the later ones after 1986, but you can still buy these as available back issues from Circle Network News and Circle Magazine here, so we will leave those to you to discover.

One of our articles prior to the Winter issue of 1986 is, “The Philosophy of Elfin Folke,” and it is about our elven perspective of faith and religion. And while it outlines The Elven Way, it is a little prior to our creation and use of the term The Elven Way (for our more recent description of The Elven Way also see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), although you can see that we are already beginning to talk about the way of elves as “our way.” Hope you enjoy reading it!

The Philosophy of Elfin Folke

     We Elfin Folke are by our natures eclectic. We seek to understand and learn from all experiences and all folk, and all we learn we translate into our elfin world view. The pathways through Faerie are both various and ever evolving; however, there is not nor will there ever be an elfin religion! We are a spiritual people though not in the sense that many often mean it, but “spirited” like a wild mare or a deer.

     The Faery faith is exactly what it means: the Magic and power of Faith in Faerie; a trust that the good, the true, and the beauty of Nature will prevail in time over wickedness, deception, and “image”; a faith that intelligence will rise above ignorance and fairness over prejudice. We never proselytize for our ways are our own; those who join us in them sincerely and freely are truly of us, but for many others, it is surely not the way.

     We believe in the Divine [Magic] and have experienced it in many ways in our lives. Each of the elfin folk has their own individual and shared totems, archetypes, and deities to whom we relate. However, for these elves in particular, we feel that the Deities neither solicit worship nor desire to be worshiped. From our communications with “higher intelligence,” we have come rather to understand that they desire mutual respect. So, what most folks would call their altar, we Silver Elves call a magic table, or sometimes, a stellarphone. We might conceive of our s’elves as being children of the Deities, or we could say that evolutionarily we are the parents and ancestors of the ever more-divine and intelligent beings to come. Being elfin it is easy for us to hold both these views simultaneously, yet we are no more attached to them than good scientists are attached to their hypotheses.

     Since they did not need nor demand our praise (though we often give it), we do not seek praise from others but rather treat all persons with the dignity they deserve just as our elfin Deities [the Shining Ones] treat us. It is because of this that we elfin have no formal hierarchies. Yet, Nature’s hierarchies are ever fluid. Intelligences, like plants, will grow if they are not stifled.

     We understand Divinity in terms of its revelations (revel-elations) that is: truth, happiness, and ecstasy. Divinity is not a being but a potentiality that exists within all beings. Our elfin Deities [the Shining Ones] are beings of higher intelligence yet we relate to them with the same respect we give to all beings, even beings of lesser intelligence – just as the Deities treat us who are of lesser intelligence than they. We seek to emulate their example. We celebrate Divinity [the Magical Divine]. We are ecstatic about the fact that there are Spirits of greater intelligence with whom we can share and learn, for we know this is the key to the future. As the Deities guide, protect, and aid us, so we strive to help others.

     The types of Deities the elfin folk relate to are multitudinous. We commune with trees and tree, and many of us have animal totems. (The Tolkien mythos is rich with such Divine characters.) Yet of all the Deities, the ancient Pan and Mab have touched us most deeply. Still in the name of the Spirit, we have shared communion with all manner of folk. We have attended churches, synagogues, mosques, meetings, meditations, satsongs, rap groups, study groups, therapy groups, and encounter groups to help in the healing of the world. But when left to ourselves (faeries, pixies, elves, and our kin), we most prefer to celebrate Spirit by Dancing the night away and chanting the names of the Stars.

The Elven Way:  The Magical Path of The Shining Ones
By The Silver Elves


“The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known
into the forest of the unknown
illuminated by the glow of the elves.”
(From the cover below)

elvenwaywebThe Elven Way: 
The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

Excerpt from Chapter One of 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.”

“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.”

tiny_green_7star

“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.”

A few places you may view more about The Silver Elves:

Here is an hour-long podcast, in which Zardoa (Michael Love) of the Silver Elves was interviewed in 2019 (please scroll down here and see Episode 1. 5) on his spiritual journey as an elf and about the elven community by Dr. Brandi Estey-Burtt and Dr. Clive Baldwin, for St. Thomas University, the Narratives of Spiritual Identity Project. In the first 16 minutes of the podcast, the researchers discuss their perceptions and research in general about otherkin and elves (this is most interesting) and then the interview with Zardoa follows. You can also down load a transcript below the podcast, but listening is of course far more fruitful.

What are our Elven Instincts and How do we use them in our Elfin Magic?

March 7, 2020

silverflame_2020

“. . . . we elven do not ignore our feelings, and instead seek to understand the difference in our emotions and instinctive feelings. In doing this, we embrace the instinctive feelings related to our true inner Nature (our “Elven Instincts”) and are then able to direct them toward the fulfillment of our dreams. And all that we desire and have missed comes to us at the right time following the radiant silver threads of our inner Nature.”

How do Elves Deal with our Emotions?

     First of all, we elves are not usually portrayed as particularly emotional people. We are most often seen to manifest the saying, ‘Still waters run deep.’ Most often, we are rather calm and serene with an icing of joy upon it. At the same time, we are not noted for being repressed individuals either. We are not hiding our emotions for the most part, we are not repressing them or suppressing them, although we have spent a bit of time, through the years, sublimating them.

     The difference in these activities is that those who repress their emotions often don’t even know or acknowledge the intense feelings that they are having. It all gets stuffed down into the unconscious and under pressure can explode outwardly and often unexpectedly into the world and quite frequently with terrible results. Repressed emotions are like a volcano that exists beneath the surface but no one realizes it is there until it forces its way to the surface.

     Suppression generally involves a more conscious effort to hold one’s emotions in check. In that sense, it is a superior psychological strategy to repression but still holds the possibility of just bursting out when one is under pressure. It’s more like a volcano you know exists, but it’s still there and quiet most of the time. You just don’t know when it might erupt and then cause havoc.

     Sublimation involves the transference of emotional energy, such as anger, into something more productive. One of the simplest examples is of those individuals who count to ten to calm thems’elves down. Some folks clean their house, others work out or play sports, we elves usually make magic. This, of course, does not take the place of truly dealing with our emotions. But if we can use our emotions to drive our magic in a positive way like wishing for what we truly need, then we may be at least making some movement toward a more healing environment or even toward contact with kindred that will help us. While doing magic to deal with our emotions may in some way be a distraction from feeling into our suffering, it can be a very important positive step.

 

What are our Elven Instincts?

     It is important not to run from our emptiness and aloneness as individuals. Denying our deepest feelings, that part of us connected to our soulful being, and pretending we don’t feel something is surely not natural and thus not really in accordance with the way elves tend to do things. Ours is the natural way, only not Nature running amok but Nature tended into a beautiful elfin garden. We are not only natural beings but supernatural beings. Nature perfecting itself.

     The elven spirit is oriented toward becoming as natural and evolved as possible in whatever form we take (in whatever dimension we inhabit). We elves, therefore, are oriented to accept our deepest inner Nature in the human form we have presently incarnated in and so have a propensity toward an awareness of our instinctual feelings and the goal of obtaining consciousness of body-mind unity. In that way, we are evolved in our consciousness from perhaps the majority of humans on Earth at this time. We could even say we are “Super Humans” or evolved Humans, not just human in form but ‘humane’ in consciousness and action. This does not mean that normal humans cannot evolve or that there are not already evolved Humans, as there surely are many and many more to come in the ancient future. Many elves feel we are incarnated in human bodies to help humans learn to accept who they truly are, to be in touch with their individual inner Nature and to evolve benevolently as a species. That is surely part of what drives us to incarnate among them. Our own development is another yet connected element in this.

     So, you may ask, what is this inner Nature that is connected and felt within our instinctive feelings, that cannot be changed by our thoughts and the conditioning of society? What is this inner Nature that the elven spirit is drawn to follow? This is most easily understood by the distinction between emotions and instinctive feelings. Emotions are most often mind based, which is to say they are a strong feeling energy aroused by some idea or notion (often a negative idea about our own inner being), quite often by an idea that has no truth, validity or actual connection to reality. These emotions are the feelings that can be triggered in our awareness, and are red flags that we still have some unresolved issues from our past to embrace and work out in our consciousness. We sometimes call these “emotional hauntings” (If you are interested in learning more about dealing with emotional hauntings and following your gut instincts to a higher awareness of your inner nature, see: http://instinctualgutfeelings.blogspot.com/2013/04/following-gut-instincts-to-awareness-of.html).

     On the otherhand, instinctive feelings are deeper and less mind involved than emotions. They originate from the gut or Hara, and on a purely intuitive and instinctive level they have little to do with thinking at all. Please be clear that we are not talking here about other animal instincts, but of Human instincts related to Human inner Nature. In a way, it would be more accurate to call them “elven instincts” as these Human or Humane (superhuman) instincts (pure gut feeling energy) are always calling us to be closer to our true Nature and in harmony with Nature all around us. This is why we Silver Elves say that if a person wishes to be an elf, they can become an elf by becoming more and more aware of their own inner nature, the instinctive feeling guide within them, and begin to follow the Elven Way quite naturally. Sadly, many humans choose to ignore their most Humane aspect, their inner instinctive Nature. But never the less, our Human or Humane (superhuman) instincts, our elven instincts, are never completely atrophied and are always sending us signals to guide us to find a balance between feeling loved and connected to others (acceptance through soul connection) and in being in control of our own responses to life (freedom of spirit). These two needs of the soul and spirit must be constantly in balance and too much of one without the other leaves us feeling empty. If they are in balance, then we feel full of life (just check your gut!) and our vitality flows freely, with body and mind united and in harmony with all of Nature. And instinctive feelings are generally quieter, even though deeper, purer and magically more powerful and enduring than emotions. Instinctive feelings are like planets and stars, while emotions are like comets and asteroids.

 

How can elves use our “Elven Instincts” in our Magic?

     We can empower our magic with emotion, but that is for very short term magics, usually. Instinctive feelings are for enduring magics — the deep magics that come from the center of our being and flow outwardly into the world. Emotional magic is more likely to cause a big stir in the short run but it is instinctive feeling magic that usually produces lasting results.

     When you run into conflict and feel very emotional about it, you can blast your opponent with emotion-based magic and that can be quite effective, but it is usually only effective for severing relationships, it is not very good for keeping them going. Although, passion can be a great way to start something, but in some ways, passion is really like burning rubber before you race off in your car. In the long run, it is true feeling that will keep a relationship going.

     And if you long and hunger for relationship, feel quite alone and empty, it is just those instinctive feelings that can be used to Call Your Others, for the feelings of aloneness and emptiness contain the possibility of togetherness and fulfillment. Pour that longing into your spell as you Sound the Call of Gathering and Union.

     We know, some people say that you should ignore those empty feelings and fake it till you make it. That is what most of the normal world does, and pretends everything is just fine right up to the point when it all goes sideways and then they get very emotional about it all. But we elven do not ignore our feelings, and instead our elven spirit calls us to seek to understand the difference in our emotions and instinctive feelings. In doing this, we embrace the instinctive feelings related to our true inner Nature (our “elven Instincts”) and are then able to direct them toward the fulfillment of our dreams. And all that we desire and have missed comes to us at the right time following the radiant silver threads of our inner Nature.

Need an Elven Enchantment Spell as a Call of Gathering and Union?

Pour your feelings into the following enchantment spell, dear Kindred, repeat every day and as often as you feel a deep longing:

“Wishing, wishing fervently

All I wish will come to me

Success (or health or a friend or a lover, a home or a job, etc) is mine for all to see

Arriving now quite readily.”

 

(In Arvyndase, the magical language of The Silver Elves)

“Feljdas, feljdas alfevla

Wyl El felj yon koso va el

Reda da el’na fro wyl va ten

Komaldas mat ven anitla.”

 

(Pronunciation)

Feel-j – dace, feel-j – dace ale – feev – lah

Will Eel feel-j yone co – so vah eel

Re – dah dah eel’nah fro will vah teen

Co – male – dace mate veen a – night – lah.

 

“The Elves say: Our lives are like ships at sea. We may not have control over the waves, tides and other circumstances we face, but we need to have mastery over the ship we are sailing.”

Elven Psychology:
Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary
and Esoteric Purposes of Mental Disorders

by The Silver Elves.

Here is an excerpt from Elven Psychology on instincts and evolutionary development:
“. . . .  this emphasis upon the symbolic and upon the significance of mind over feelings is an evolutionary development associated with the fifth root race and eventually evolves into a more intuitive (elven) approach to life. In other words, this and many of the other disorders are a natural (in their unnatural way) step toward a greater and more developed humanity. Once the new mental function for human beings with the emphasis on symbols is developed and expressed, mankind will see the necessity for once again bringing in the awareness of their feelings/instincts which have been repressed and will then unite the body and mind, opening the ability for higher intuition with a true evolutionary advance. That the elves tend to be a bit ahead of many other races in regards to this development is only to point out, as folklore and fiction have often done, that we are the Elder/Eldar race and thus a little bit ahead of the rest of humanity in the process of evolution. But they will catch up in time, although by that time, most of us will have moved on.”

“Elfin doesn’t just await us, it also reaches out to us, sounding Its Call, which echoes in the hearts and minds of all true Elfae folk.”
—Ancient Elfin Knowledge

 

If you enjoyed the article above on using our feelings in elven magic and following the path of elfin, then we suggest that you might wish to look into some of our Silver Elves books on magic like The Keys to Enchantment: Mastery of the Faerie Light Through the Portals of Manifestation and also particularly Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic. Faerie Unfolding is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning we 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 (which we also suggest if you have not already read them) — 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. We Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples.

Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic

 

“We are not elves primarily because we think we are elves, but because we feel elven and thus know ours’elves to be elves and we express that feeling with our entire being, and in that way manifesting it into the world.”

Does the Elven Way require vows?

February 23, 2020
Zardoa_hood_blog
“. . . it is that in our opinion, such vows should arise, if they ever do, spontaneously. They should spring from the heart and always be freely taken, if at all. There is no obligation to dedicate ones’elf to the Elven Way. We don’t have a cult or religion, or membership fees or dues, rules, dress codes, doctrines, dogmas, obligatory rituals, or authorities. Although it is so that we do often have charismatic individuals whose magic and enchantment and progress upon the Elven Way inspires us to do greater things ours’elves and increase our own power and potency while simultaneously empowering our others.”

     In late 1975, while we were visiting our sisters of the Fox River Vortex of the Elf Queen’s Daughters, we, with another sister, dedicated ours’elves to the Elven Way and the Path of the Elven and swore to the spirits, Nature and the Universe that we would continue on and endure on the path as long as we were able. There had been a gathering and a bonfire the night before for there had been nearly two dozen elves and elf friends together at the Fox River Vortex, including elves who had traveled down from their vortex in Minnesota and most of them had spent the night sleeping over. Every bed and all the couches and some of the floor had been occupied.

     The fire had mostly burnt out at that point in the morning, although we probably could have fanned a few hidden embers had we desired, but what we did was take the ashes from the night’s fire and anointed each other as we took our vows.

     These vows, however, where utterly spontaneous. No one demanded that we take them, and in fact, our elven sister Melryn, of the Fox River Elves, chuckled a bit when we told her what we had done and embraced us. We made up the words as we went along and the whole ceremony, if you would call it that, took us about a minute to create and perform. These vows had sprung from a heartfelt wish to dedicate ours’elves to the Elven Path, and were a response to the great joy we felt in being with and knowing our elven kindred and the delight of being awakened.

     So, it is that in our opinion, such vows should arise, if they ever do, spontaneously. They should spring from the heart and always be freely taken, if at all. There is no obligation to dedicate ones’elf to the Elven Way. We don’t have a cult or religion, or membership fees or dues, rules, dress codes, doctrines, dogmas, obligatory rituals, or authorities and elves are compelled by their own Nature to be true to their own s’elves. Although it is so that we do often have charismatic individuals whose magic and enchantment and progress upon the Elven Way inspires and thus guides us to do greater things ours’elves and increase our own power and potency while simultaneously empowering our others.

     We stay upon the Elven Way because it gives us joy and draws to us to those who are truly our kindred. Of course, it sometimes draws others as well. Others who are not quite ready to develop thems’elves. Are not prepared for the rigors of this Path (and it can be quite rigorous). Who seek personal advantage and only give lip service to the inner essence of the Elven Way. But that is to be expected. Nearly everyone who has even a bit of Elven Spirit in them, will be aroused, at least a bit, by encountering us. We give them what we may, what they can absorb and often a bit more until their cup overfloweth, and then we continue on our way, and if they cannot come along with us as yet, we will surely see them again, as we pass by once more in the future lifetime.

     And the Elven Way is not easily perceived or understood because, rather like Faerie its’elf, it changes according to individuals involved. We adapt to the life elfin but Elfin also adapts its’elf to us. It is a very individualistic path, even while it draws us closer and closer together. Our union becomes strong because we are confident individuals. We don’t need appointed (usually self-appointed) leaders because we are each in the process of leading ours’elves and directing our own lives. If others learn from our example that is surely a blessing for them and for us.

     We can tell you this for certain. If those you encounter demand money from you to be part of the elven way or path, they are probably not elves, most likely goblins. If they have strict rules you have to follow, you are probably dealing with grimlins. If you are arbitrarily forced to take a vow, then they are most likely grimlins as well, although possibly orcs, unless it is really a scam for money and then we are back to goblins.

     Would you dedicate yours’elf to the Elven Way? Then do so. And if you wish to take a vow to affirm that dedication, you will, being the elf that you are, probably have to make that vow up yours’elf. There is no obligation involved. Always, vow or no vow, be true to your own s’Elf. Many have tread the path, left it and returned again. We will be here for you as long as we are able and when we pass from this life, surely, we’ll see you again in another. But that is up to you really. We, for our part, will always be here for you, it’s just that here changes location from time to time. We are, after all, stardust surfing in the Stellar winds.

“We elves don’t consider ours’elves as teachers, nor do we see those who come to us to learn the Elven Way, no matter how new they may be, as students, we are all brothers and sisters of the Way, the Great Frasority of Elfin Kindred.”
—What the elves Say

tiny_green_7star

Many Kindred have asked us what is “The Elven Way.” Although we have written books on it (see our book The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones), here below is our short definition:

Short definition ofThe Elven Way”

by The Silver Elves

“The Elven Way is the spiritual path of the Elves. It is not a religion. While all elves are free to pursue whatever spiritual path they desire, or not as the case may be, The Silver Elves are magicians and follow no particular religious dogma. We do however believe in all the Gods and Goddesses, (also Santa Claus [to whom we’re related], the tooth fairy [distant cousins] and the Easter or Ostara Bunny [no relation]) and try to treat them all with due respect. The Elven Way promotes the principles of Fairness, that is to say both Justice, Elegance and Equal Opportunity and Courtesy that is respectful in its interactions and attitude toward all beings, great or small. We understand the world as a magical or miraculous phenomena, and that all beings, by pursuing their own true path, will become whomever they truly desire to be. Our path is that of Love and Magic and we share our way with all sincerely interested individuals.”

     “To remind us ever of the need to rise up and lift our others with us, to have compassion for others even those who oppose us, to endeavor to understand the true natures and motivations not only of ours’elves but all others, the Shining Ones send us Sages who appear in many forms, in nearly all cultures and speak though various social and religious philosophies encouraging us to strive toward the light, to seek ever the good of all, and to further spiritual evolution in all that we do. We elves call this the Way of the Fair or The Elven Way. The Path is never-ending, the Way is ever before us, the Choice is always now, and we are eternally evolving. This is the Elven Way. The enculturation and other protections that shield the normal folk from the realization of other dimensions are lifted when the elf steps upon the path and begins to tread the Elven Way. The Elven Way gives our lives meaning and purpose. We come to understand who we truly are, that is that we are spirits evolving and we establish a purpose in our lives, which generally might be expressed as aiding ours’elves and all others to fulfill ours’elves perfectly. That is to say, we become who are truly are, which is who we truly desire to be. Remember, we ever wish to be our own true s’elves as perfectly as possible, which means among other things to be happy and successful forever, to live Happily Ever After.”

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”)

The Silver Elves Tarot Reading
for the Elfae People for 2020!

The Silver Elves invite you to view our Youtube video presentation demonstrating the elven method of tarot reading and what we call the “Elven Shuffle,” a unique way that we elves use shuffling the cards to allow the spirit world to select the cards in a reading. And we also give a general reading (using the “Elven Shuffle” for a complete Celtic Cross spread) and prediction for the Elven-Fae people for the year 2020! Then please do subscribe to our You Tube channel and we would love to read a comment from you in the comment section below the video. We plan to have more videos on casting and using our original Silver Elves oracles in the future, including our original elven runes, elven geomancy, the I Ching and our elven interpretation, and the Elven Star Oracle. Many Elven Blessings, dear Kindred! https://youtu.be/UCMGCEDZqo0

And for more on the elven style of tarot, you may enjoy reading our two Silver Elves books on using the tarot for magical wish fulfillment and as an elven oracle:

The Elven Book of Powers: Using the Tarot for Magical Wish Fulfillment

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

“Elven Magic is at the very border of what we know through science, ever reaching out into the unknown.”
—The Silver Elves

And for further reading:

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

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

ThroughtheMists

Excerpt from Through The Mists of Faerie:

“And one should know as well that in treading the Path of the Elven that most folks at this time in the world, mostly probably including one’s oldest and closest friends, may be uncomfortable with this venture into the unknown. Your old friends like you as you are, and are often uncomfortable with you are making what seems to them to be radical changes in your life. One thus may wish to be cautious in revealing one’s elven nature to others. Most will simply ridicule the idea. Some, because of fundamentalist beliefs may be intimidated by the idea of magic and warn you against pursuing the ways of the Devil. And since the newly awakened often take on elf names many, if not most, of one’s friends, will feel uncomfortable using this new name. At the same time the Elfae naturally wishes the name to be used to reinforce hir own confidence in pursuing the Elven Way. Each must decide in hir own circumstances how much sHe is willing, and how much it is wise, to reveal and to whom.”

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.
