Are Elves Human? Is an Elven Soul and Spirit Different from that of a Human?

September 2, 2019
Zardoa_refaire“The soul is the unifying aspect of our being. It connects us to others, for that is its function and to say that an elven soul is different than a human soul is to misunderstand the nature of humanity and, even more so, the true nature of the soul. All souls are One. Soul is the connective tissue of the energetic Universe. It seeks similarities not differences by its very nature. . . . .And while each elven spirit is unique, we do have a high propensity by our very elven spirit to seek to embrace our inner Nature within the human body or the true Nature of whatever form we have taken. And in that way, our elven spirits move us to evolve to be super human and lead humanity in uniting body and mind and developing intuitional intelligence through awareness of our inner Nature, as Humans will also do in the Ancient Future.”

 

Are Elves Human?

From our point of view, not all Elves or Fae or Faeries or Otherkin are human. There are elf birds, and elf trees, and elf deer and many other elfin beings who are not human at all or only sort of. Surely, the porpoises and dolphins are elfin without being human, although they are mammals like humans. And, there are the Shining Ones who have advanced to the point where they don’t need human bodies at all anymore but may still take one on because the material realm is a great place to not only learn things but also to test one’s spirit, to develop one’s soulful connection to others, to improve one’s powers and abilities and one’s adeptship in magic and enchantment, and also to help advance and awaken our kindred still learning in the material world. We don’t have to have teachers but they can be very helpful.

And, of course, there are all those who are in the In Between, in the life between physical manifestations, where one doesn’t have a body, per se, one just is as one often is in one’s dreams. The development of Lucid Dreaming can be an important aid to navigating those realms where physicality has given way to pure awareness and sentient consciousness.

Of course, there are many elfae folks in human bodies who say that they are not human. This sounds contradictory and even a bit crazy at times, since they clearly have human bodies. But what they are really saying is that while they may have a human body on the material plane that their spirit is other than human. They may appear to be humans on the surface, but inside they are dragons, or faeries, or elves or aspiring Shining Ones, but then, who of us aren’t aspiring Shining Ones, really?

This is rather similar to those who, while they may have the body of a male or female in physical form, feel within that they are really of the other gender. If we add to this the fact that doctors for generations have surgically altered children who have been born with both sexual organs so they will only adhere to one gender, one can understand that life is much more complex in reality than the black and white —falsehood and absolute truth — that many people like to think defines the world and therefore they unfortunately do not always accept many beautiful variations of life. The moon doesn’t just come out at night.

A conflict arises, however, due greatly to the fact that this is the Kali Yuga or Dark Age or Materialistic Age, where nearly everything is conceived of as having materialistic underpinnings and origins. We have passed the half way point, dear Kindred, of our descend into matter and now we begin to slowly ascend again into the understanding of the spiritual nature and origin of life but still many people are affected deeply by this materialistic orientation. So, it is that many individuals who are spiritually Other, but have material human bodies, wish to believe that their physical body is also somehow better or essentially different than those around them, claiming some genetic source of their spiritual being. And who is to say that this isn’t so on some very subtle level. If there is a material source for everything than surely the reason we feel we are, say we are and live as elves, fae and others can be found in some, as yet, undiscovered aspect of our genetic makeup. We are human surely but of a different sort.

It does seem to be true, at least we elves have often encountered the fact, that elfin folk often look younger than our contemporaries and often live longer. But that really has more to do with the way we live our lives than strict genetics. We tend to take care of ours’elves. We eat as healthily as we can, we exercise, and avoid (surely limit the use of) most of those things, such as cigarettes and addictive drugs, that have such a wearing and aging affect upon the human body.

If our human bodies are superior to the bodies of those normal folk who are around us, it is mostly because we have cared for our bodies, rather like an automobile that is well maintained, rather than neglected and abused them. In living the life Elfin, we choose the superior path of care and maintenance for our minds, spirits, souls and our bodies, in every dimension and the care of our others as well. This is the Elven Way and while we may not all be human, or not human all the time, or not entirely human, we are human enough and elfin enough to do our best to strive to create a better world for us and all others.

There are some elfin folk who like to claim that their bodies, while humanoid, are not really human. They tell us they have superior elven bodies due to their special genetic lineage. Nicholas De Vere claimed that those of pure elven blood, by which he meant direct descent from the Scythians, had a genetic power to do magic and also to being rulers of average humanity. According to him, elves were born to rule. While he provided a series of documents (we would have preferred DNA test) indicating the purity of his lineage, he offered no real proof or evidence that he could do magic that others couldn’t or that he would, in fact, make a good ruler.

In truth, there isn’t much, if any, evidence at all that great rulers produce children who are also great rulers. Nor that great mechanics give birth to great mechanics or great artists to great artists. It is not that it never happens, but it is rather rare really. It would be more accurate to say, we think, that those who are raised from children and educated in mechanics, or violin or anything else, have some advantage in developing that skill over others who take it up later. Here we are not discounting the awareness of genetic studies that suggest a link between several genes and creativity, particularly musical ability. But genetic potential does not assure talent without education and training. Still, there are many whose parents seem rather ordinary who have emerged to greatness in some field or activity that the parents didn’t do themselves but often in areas the parents actively discouraged and advised against.

The only thing we can really say for certain about European monarchies active use of eugenics to create a superior race of rulers, a class above as it were, was that all that inbreeding resulted in the manifestation in royal bloodlines of a variety of inherited diseases and disorders. One can inherit genetic things through one’s blood and body, but things of the mind and spirit, are inherit, quite a bit, through those realms and may also be altered through generations of time with epigenetic modifications. Especially, the powers of the spirit.

Still, we will find, now and again, individuals who make all sorts of claims about having elven bodies with advanced genetics and blood lineage with no evidence whatsoever to back up their claims. They make claim to greater powers as well as the ability to live nearly forever. Alas, often the very way in which they express their superiority makes one doubt its efficacy. We might ask ours’elves why individuals wish to make such claims in the first place, for they are clearly untrue. If you are communicating by email or instant messenger, or if you’ve ever been to a dentist and have fillings in your teeth, have had a root canal or have a crown or two in your mouth, or if you neglected to go to the dentist or neglected your teeth or have been subject to gum disease and have lost some of your teeth, guess what? You have a human body!

Some of the elfae who make such claims do so in order to separate thems’elves from Mankind. They wish to say: I’m not one of those crazy people who would destroy the Earth because of their own greed and ignorance. In this way, these are embracing the idea that the I Ching espouses that in many ways the highest good is being able to authentically say: It’s not my fault.

Some who make such claims, however, are attempting to create some sense of authority for thems’elves. They are saying, in effect, I have a superior elven body and thus you should listen to me because I’m clearly more advanced than you and therefore right. Alas, this is a logical fallacy. While we might give greater credence to the thoughts of those who are truly experts on a particular subject, that doesn’t mean they are always right in what they think all the time. It is not enough to be a noted scientist and declare a theory. One must support one’s theories with facts, reasoning and logic. And those who use the claim of having advanced elven bodies or to being great adept elves as the sole support for their ideas, not only don’t back up their claims with logic and facts, they can’t even demonstrate the true authenticity of their claims about their genetic makeup. What is worst is that often such individuals are not only using their claims to establish their authority as individuals, saying, in effect, I’m the authority so you should listen to me, they are also using these claims as a means of belittling the ideas and the intrinsic value of others. Saying, quite obvious, I’m better than you so I must be right.

Now, we Silver Elves don’t claim to be experts on anything, really. Some people think we are experts on Celtic Lore, but we know we are not. We are far from it. We just seem expert when seen in the light of their own admitted lack of knowledge on the subject. We used to have a friend that would tell us that we should claim to be experts on Celtic studies, because we couldn’t always tell them we were elves. And when we pointed out that we weren’t experts on Celtic lore, this individual replied, “Well, they won’t know that.”

Nor are we even experts on magic, faerie lore, or even elves. Any more than every man or woman is an expert on men and women, although many of them claim to be. The most we can say is that we are perpetual students of many areas of study and are really quite humble elf folk for the most part. We make no claim to being superior to our kindred, we know we are here on Earth together. We are not here to raise ours’elves above you, but to rise together. And our ideas are merely that, our ideas. No, less than that. Our ideas at any moment may change as soon as we encounter superior ideas and inspiration. And it doesn’t matter what sort of body you have, beloved kin, it’s the power of our hearts and mind that will bring us all closer to living the life Elfin.

“Our elven spirit makes us unique.
Our elfin soul unites us.
Thus, we are each One, Together.”

Is an Elven Soul and Spirit Different from that of a Human?

At the heart of this question, there is an unspoken assumption that elves are not human. As we have said in the article above, we know that there are many folk who would like to think that they are different than the humans around them but nearly anyone who can or is likely to read these words, surely has a human body to do so.

It is not that there aren’t elven who don’t have human bodies: elven porpoises, dolphins, elven birds, etc. and elves of other dimensions, but they are, for the most part, not likely to read these words and then write and claim they aren’t human. The difference between elves and others, really, is more like the difference between Whites and Blacks and Asians and every other variety of people thereof, except for the fact that we elves may be born into bodies from any of those races and often born into ones that are some mixture thereof. The difference between elves and other humans is more one of temperament and spirit rather than strict physical distinctions, although we do tend to age less quickly, are thinner for the most part and less bulkily muscular and so on, but those aspects may vary as well.

Most often when people say that they are elven, fae or other and not human, what they are really saying is that energetically or spiritually, which is to say their true inner being, is other than human. Alas, because so many people in this Materialistic Age feel compelled to consider the physical world as the base from which all this evolves, they express this in a physical fashion, even though it is clear that there is no physical or actually major genetic basis for them doing so.

However, if you view the world from an energetic point of view, then it should be clear that the world is filled with beings who are not really human. In fact, quite a number are inhuman beings. But there are also chickens, pigs, old goats, young goats, and sheep, lots and lots of sheep, each bleating about every little thing they disagree with and all baa-baaing together about their shepherd who is their lord, master and savior and sticking close together because of the sheep dogs he has constantly nipping at their heels, since they do have a tendency, as they inform us, to stray. There are also trolls, quite a few roaming around these days, as well as pixies, faeries, brownies, orcs and all manner of folk.

This is all to say that we otherworldly types have some sense of our energetic fourth dimensional being and understand inwardly, if not always in a clear intellectual fashion, that this is a profound aspect of our characters. In that way, we may be very different from other humans, but we still, for the most part, have human bodies as well as our fourth dimensional manifestation.

Souls, however, are a different thing altogether. At their essence, all souls are the same. We might compare them, however inadequately, to telephones. However much a telephone might seem different in appearance or capability or the plan its connected to, all phones are made to send and receive messages. The soul is the unifying aspect of our being. It connects us to others, for that is its function and to say that an elven soul is different than a human soul is to misunderstand the nature of humanity and, even more so, the true nature of the soul. All souls are One. Soul is the connective tissue of the energetic Universe. It seeks similarities not differences by its very nature.

It is true that some people have let their batteries die. Some don’t really use their phones much. Some have taken out their batteries altogether and perhaps thrown them away. And some phones are old and don’t work very well, although the opposite tends to be the case for souls, for the older, or more experienced a soul is, the better it tends to work. Nearly all magic depends upon soulful and energetic connection. This is especially true of enchantment. There are those who have pretty much killed their souls who can still affect the world through the pure power of their spirit, but that is exhausting and that magic, as they like to say, always has a cost and the cost in the long run is usually quite dear. Whereas, enchantment and soulful magic profits everyone. You get much more than you put into it, and so does everyone else. That’s why it’s so powerful.

So, there is no difference in essence from an elven soul and any other soul, human or otherwise, because souls unify and connect. Their nature is harmony and mutual reciprocation. The soul seeks what is the same, not what is different and while they can be differentiated through time and experience, just as water may take on impurities, in its pure state, water remains the same.

The spirit, on the other hand, is another matter entirely. Its nature is individual and individualizing and at its essence, every developed spirit is unique. Thus, the elven spirit is not only different from every other human spirit, it is eccentric and unique from all spirits and growing more so all the time.

And while each elven spirit is unique, we do have a high propensity by our very elven spirit to seek to embrace our inner Nature within the human body or the true Nature of whatever form we have taken. And in that way, our elven spirits move us to evolve to be super human and lead humanity in uniting body and mind and developing intuitional intelligence through awareness of our inner Nature, as Humans will also do in the Ancient Future.

—The Silver Elves

 

And for further reading:

And, dear Kindred, if you enjoyed the article above about elven soul and spirit, 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.”

Elves Listen

We listen to the people

We listen to the trees

We listen to the stars

That whisper on the breeze;

We listen to our hearts

We do this most of all

And we listen to the dance of death

That comes about in Fall;

We listen to the seeds in Spring

As they heed life’s new call

And springing up remind us

Of the Faerie Ball;

They summon us to rise as well

And holding hands renew

Our journey on the Elven Way

Toward all that’s bright and true.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sold here on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Can Anyone Be An Elf and Why Don’t All Elves Choose Elven Bodies In Which To Reincarnate?

May 21, 2019
ZHarpist
“. . . anyone who truly wishes to be an elf is, de facto, elfin in their heart and mind and if they pursue the Elven Way, they will surely become more and more elven in their inner being and that will, in time, affect their bodies, which will in the course of time, affect their DNA. . . . those who are descended from the elfae can be nearly anywhere on the Earth, born to all sorts of people and arising in a variety of cultures, merging as the Celts did with the people who came after them.”

Part One: Can Anyone Be An Elf?

Well, really, anyone who truly wishes to be an elf is, de facto, elfin in their heart and mind and if they pursue the Elven Way, they will surely become more and more elven in their inner being and that will, in time, affect their bodies, which will in the course of time, affect their DNA.

It is true that DNA doesn’t change quickly usually, which is not to say that it doesn’t produce mutations from time to time, but that is something different. When we are talking about mutations, we are really talking about DNA experimenting with the material realm. When we are talking about changing our bodies and therefore, in time, affecting our DNA, we are talking about our own actions, habits, and behaviors altering, or really communicating with and educating our DNA, which is the means used to transfer messages via the body from lifetime to lifetime. But we don’t travel from life to life via our bodies. We just inhabit them. We progress from life to life by way of our soulful spirits.

In many ways, our bodies are like a suit of clothes, elven raiment we might say, that we put on after a long time in the closet, or perhaps, that we just bought at the store and discover a piece of paper with messages on it in the pocket or a label stating the designer. We are the spirits who wear the bodies. Without us, without spirit to inhabit it, the body is like a person in a coma, or individual who has become a zombie. It doesn’t matter how you get the body you have, if you are void of spirit.

It is true that there are those elves who claim lineage from this or that elf tribe of old, which is wonderful as far as we are concerned, however, knowing that your ancestors were elven is not the same as living the life elfin, yours’elf. That’s rather like saying that your ancestors were Christian, therefore you are Christian even though you may not live in anyway like a true Christian should. Although, Christianity is basically a religious and spiritual philosophy, thus we might do better to look at Judaism as an analogy.

One can be Jewish or Hebrew by genetics, although being a matriarchal lineage, you are not considered to be Jewish if your mother wasn’t Jewish. If your father was Jewish but not your mother, then you are not considered to be Jewish. We elves find that curious, but then, the Universe can be a very curious place. Of course, one can be Jewish by birth, but not follow the Jewish religion, or one of its sub-sects, nor pay all that much attention to Jewish culture. Or one can be or do some combination thereof. These elves have known a lot of Jewish brothers and sisters who were born Jewish, but didn’t practice the religion at all. Usually, they are Buddhists, Pagans, or Atheists, although we’ve encountered a few who became Christian.

At the same time, many of these folk still very much cherished the Jewish Culture, although not all. There have even been folk who are not Jewish by birth or upbringing and who follow the Jewish faith, even though Jewish people, like Elves, don’t proselytize. So, who is really Jewish? Are you Jewish if you are only Jewish by birth but don’t value the faith or culture? Or must you also cherish and live the Jewish Culture and follow the Jewish Religion? Are those who were born and raised other than Jewish but have converted to the Jewish Religion and Culture really Jewish?

From an Elven point of view, which is to say, if they were elves, they would all be considered elven, or Jewish in our analogy, at least by these elves. Those with elven ancestors would be elven, even if only their mother or father, or a grandparent was an elf. Those who love the Elven Culture are elven as well. And surely those who follow the Elven Way are Elven no matter who the ancestors of their present body may have been. It is the spirit that really matters to we who are Silver Elves.

Of course, through our Elven Tribe questionnaire (see What Kind of Elfae/ Fae or Otherkin Are You on our Silver Elves website to take the questionnaire yourself), we have discovered there are all manner of elven tribes and clans and if a particular tribe wishes to exclude others based purely on genetics, well, what can we say but that it is clearly their right to do so, although we think they will be missing out on interacting with some great elven kindred spirits.

Alas, often those who make claim to physical elven heritage and genetics unfortunately use this as a way of excluding others not only from their clan but from their idea of what constitutes being elven at all. Again, it is their right to think as they wish, but we think it is a right that is being narrowly exercised. And usually those who do this do so to make thems’elves feel special while subtly denying others the right to do the same. It’s a one-upmanship game. There is just something a bit narrow minded and mean-spirited about that. And it seems to us it is just a step or two removed from those who say you have to have pointed ears to be an elf, or be tall, or incredibly thin, so that if a person is a bit short or overweight, they are arbitrarily excluded and considered un-elven. While we do believe that we, as elves upon the path, should do all we reasonably can to take care of our bodies and to be as healthy and fit as we can be, we know that many people struggle with their weight and that struggle, in its’elf is a rather courageous step upon the Elven Path. We don’t deny them the right to consider thems’elves elven just because they’re over weight. And the point of view that would exclude them from being elven, just because of the current body form or ancestry, just seems un-elven to us.

Well, as we said early in this blog article, anyone who wishes to be an elf, can be an elf, but very few wish to be elves who are not already elven in their hearts, minds and souls. We do get those who are traveling through, so to speak, from time to time, because being an elf sometimes seems cool (substitute rad or whatever slang word you happen to use) and exciting and elves are magical and wondrous, so who wouldn’t wish to be an elf, really? But, surprisingly, very few who aren’t at least a bit elven wish to be elves. There are all sorts of other superhero, otherworldly, supernatural beings with powers that one can aspire toward being. And the list just keeps growing.

But we don’t mind the fact that not everyone is going to continue to claim an elven identity. We treat visitors in our realms as our very own. ‘Mi casa es su casa,’ as the Spanish speaking elfin say. Or as we who use Arvyndase say: ‘Te ata arae eli,’ ‘Be one among us.’ If you are an elf friend, even for a short while, you are kin to us in spirit and we will embrace you as our very own.

Of course, some elves are more materialistically oriented than others of us. Developing a spiritual understanding of the Universe and reality can take time. Surely, one can be descended from those folks who were known as being elven or fae in the past, or upon whom the legends, lore and tales of the elfae are based. But really, fairy tales are a nearly worldwide phenomena and if we are to believe the tales, or at least give them some credence, then we elfin were some of the first peoples, the aboriginal folk of the Earth, everywhere. Thus, those who are descended from the elfae can be nearly anywhere on the Earth, born to all sorts of people and arising in a variety of cultures, merging as the Celts did with the people who came after them.

Yet, despite this, very few individuals actually wish or claim to be elven. There is a good deal of social ridicule for doing so, which surely filters out a lot of those for whom being elven would just be a passing fad, and there is not much left in the way of living culture to be born and raised within anymore. Few elves were raised by aware elven parents, although our children were. Those missing aspects of our culture is what we are creating here and now.

And the simple fact is that not all elves and elfae, or perhaps even most of us, are as enamored of Elven and Faerie culture as we Silver Elves are. The vast majority of those who are really elves are too busy trying to save the whales, clean up the oceans, save the forests, protect endangered species and all around being busy protecting the environment to really bother or care about calling thems’elves elves or fae folk. Some few of us, however, have also undertaken the task of preserving and creating, re-creating our cultural heritage. We are endeavoring to shift through all the gibberish about us to reveal the true gems of elven life, culture and wisdom. Are those folks not elves or fae, just because they don’t bother to claim to be so? Not every elf has felt the calling of this duty to preserve and promote Elven culture. Most have more important things to do.

Let’s take the example, for instance, of those individuals who claim to be Christian because they were raised by parents who also claimed to be Christian and go to church in order to be socially accepted in a Christian society.  Who also claim to believe whatever Christians are supposed to believe but who act in ways that are most definitely un-Christian, at least to the understanding of we Silver Elves, but then, we are not Christian. Hypocrisy may be a Christian tenet as far as we know, but we rather doubt it. Are such disingenuous individuals really Christian?

Contrast them with individuals who live in the way that Jesus wished, are Christian by their acts and deeds but don’t claim to be Christian or perhaps make claim to any faith at all? Are they truly Christian by deed, if not by acclamation? By the same token, is it more important to claim you are an elf or fae but not tread the path of the Elven Way or is it more vital to live by the principles of the Elven Way and seek in all you do to help, heal and spread the wonder of magic all about you? Who then would be truly elven?

Well, this is an old debate among Christians as well as among the Elves. Perhaps we will never reach agreement but we shall strive onward as the Elfin folk that we are, encouraging each and everyone to “walk their talk” and “put their money where their mouth is” as men and goblins like to say. Or as we elves like to say, “Be the elf you know yours’elf to be, as fully as you can, striving ever to make this a more magical world for everyone.” And if you do that, you are surely an elf, whatever you may call yours’elf and whomever the ancestors of the body happened to be.

Part Two: Why Don’t All Elves Choose Elven Bodies In Which To Reincarnate?

There seems to be a divide in the elfae community between those who look at being elven as a material state of being saying that only those who are descended by blood (which is to say by genetics) from elven folk can truly be elven and those of us who view the material world, rather as the Buddhists do, as a secondary world that is based upon the world of spirit and energy and that being elven has more to do with one’s spirit, consciousness and magic, or one’s will empowered by action, than with the body one has chosen to inhabit in a particular lifetime.

Perhaps this difference can be seen by way of example. A number of years ago in the United States, a woman rose to prominence in the Black community only to be discovered years later to have White parents. She was not genetically Black at all. This, of course, caused a bit of a scandal. For years, she had made herself appear Black and had fought and struggled to promote awareness and equality and fairness for Black people, but because she was not Black genetically, even though she had been assumed for decades as being, she was no longer considered Black.

However, from the point of view of we Silver Elves, while she was not Black in a genetic sense, she was Black in her soul and in her spirit and more than likely had been Black in lifetimes previous. Why else would she wish to be accepted as Black? Of course, those who see the world from a strictly material point of view, which is nearly everyone currently in the world, took the point of view that she was faking it and not really Black at all. That is surely the standpoint of most Men, but why would we Elves fall in line with the kneejerk reactions and enculturated thoughtforms of Men? After all, if we are to believe the legends and lore about us, even the ones created by Men, our race is older, wiser and more magical and mystical, which is to say in this case, more etheric than Mankind and, even to their own minds, will ever be so.

For Elfin and Faerie are, as are the elfae folk ours’elves, essentially supernatural beings. Supernatural being a word that indicates Nature in its most advanced state of being, infused with the world of spirit and magic and the beings and creatures thereof. We elves are spirits manifested in the material world. Well, some of us are on higher planes of manifestation, surely, and certainly some are currently traveling through the Between. But those of us writing here have manifested in humanoid bodies that perhaps are just a bit more aware and etheric than many of the normal folks around us. Thus, we must remember to keep ours’elves grounded, which is especially important for the faeries who simply tend to fly off at times, but for the elven, this is something most of us have mastered fairly well.

This understanding of the supernatural aspects of the world is very close to the way most of our ancestors experienced the world as being filled with spirits and energies and magic everywhere. Even Men once saw the world that way, which is part of the reason they came to have tales about us. They saw us, at least in part, as we were. It scared them and they persecuted us, but then, they also persecuted everyone, including each other, so we elfae shouldn’t take it all that personally. For Men, as they themselves say, most wicked things that they do are not personal, it’s just business. Men hunger to succeed and dominate everything and everyone in order to make a profit, but to them money equates to self-worth. They killed off a lot of us and did a fairly good job of destroying our culture (although our culture persisted none-the less), all to make themselves feel important.

One might wonder if we can choose the body we are reincarnated within, why we elves don’t just always select those bodies that are descended from those who survived with what some folks refer to as the Elven Holocaust (see Nicolas De Vere The Dragon Legacy). And the reasons are several, really. One, there just weren’t as many genetically elven bodies available as there were elven spirits reincarnating. We could wait, of course, to be reincarnated, but then, we had things to do, desires of our own that drew us into the material world and we selected the best bodies and situations available at any particular time.

Two, some of us, particularly those of us with a bit of pixie blood in us, thought it might be humorous, as well as efficacious, if we were born to the descendants of the Men who persecuted us and then gave them hell when we became teenagers. And then, as we matured, we began preserving our elven heritage as best we might through fairy tales and lore, as well as, subtly affecting the way they viewed the world. At the very least, offering them some alternative ideas. We have not been without some success in this regard, however, they do and have always looked upon us as being the “black sheep of the family” and generally rather eccentric.

We elves have always been the oddballs, the weirdos and crazies of our families. For we are elves. We are supernatural beings. To see and constrict the world to a strictly materialistic point of view is to limit one’s understanding and ability to do and be magic. If one understands our magical nature, the essential enchantment of our being, then one will also understand that we can adopt whatever bodies we desire from one life to the next as purpose and destiny incline us to do. Further, it should be clear that in this world, as we’ve said previously, almost no one would call thems’elves an elf if they didn’t have some elf in their Nature.

So, beloved, embrace and nurture all your kindred as best you are able, and help each and every one become who they are truly meant to be, which is their own true s’elf, and together we shall create Elfin upon the Earth and Elsewhere and dance beneath the Moon and Stars.

We Silver Elves don’t care who your ancestors were, although if you wish to tell us we would surely find it interesting. We don’t care what religion you were born and raised into, as long as you don’t attempt to push it on us, although we are quite interested in religion as a study overall. We don’t care from what race you’ve descended, what country you came from, or what your social status is, although all of that can make for interesting conversation. We only care that you are doing your best to evolve as a spirit and as an individual and that we can strive together onward enlightening the path to Elfin for ours’elves and our kindred, now and to come as we move into the future creating Elfin upon the Earth.

And a Word from Diviners Corner . . .

. . .The Silver Elves have several original Elven divination systems that have been created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners, including The Elven Star Oracle, Elven Geomancy, and our most recent oracle system Sticks and Stones, Feathers, Charms, and Bones:
 

STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS, CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

by The Silver Elves is an original oracle system that uses the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of sticksandstonescoverthe Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame. You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on. To read an excerpt and more about this book,  please click here!

. . . . And for using oracles to form rituals

GEOMANCY

     A number of our Silver Elves oracle books are filled with elven mantras for specific magical uses. If you truly like using elven mantras for magick, elven mantras accompany each of the oracles in our book Elven Geomancy: An Ancient Oracle of the Elfin Peoples for Divination and Spell Casting and are written in our magical language Arvyndase with the English meaning also given. These mantras can be strung together to form a spell to increase the magic associated with the answer you receive in this oracle. And these mantras may be used along with the mudras also given in this book for each outcome to form a sort of impromptu ritual that you can perform in order to increase the potency of what you wish to achieve. To read an excerpt and more about this book,  please click here!

“We elves don’t believe in magic because we are superstitious
but because we instinctually have faith
in the near infinite nature of the Universe
and its potentialities.”
—The Silver Elves

 

And for further reading on the Elven way and following the Elven Path, we suggest:

If you have questions about the Elven Way and being an elf, then you may alsomagicalRealms2 wish to read The Magical Realms of Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path. We also suggest our volume 2 in this series of questions and answers: Manifesting Elfin: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path, Volume 2. If you are curious about elves and want to learn more about modern elves, then you will surely find The Magical Realmanifesting_Elfinms of Elfin and Manifesting Elfin to contain many of your questions answered and either or both books will be a great comfort and help in finding your way home to abide in the magical realms of elfin and in manifesting elfin in your daily life.

Magical Books by The Silver Elves on The Elven Way, Magic and Enchantment, Elven Oracles, Elven Language, and Elfin Lifestyle

Below the information on the newest Silver Elves books, you will  also find (at the bottom part of this page) a complete list of all the 45+ other Silver Elves books published between 2011 to 2019 on magic and enchantment and the Elven Way by The Silver Elves, with a brief description of each.

Our Newest Books by the Silver Elves beginning in March 2019 (books are presented beginning with the most recently published)

November 2019

Cover_ElfinBookOfTrees

Sold here on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK

We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid: The Ogham of the Elves Using Elvish Wizard Script.

An Elfin Book of Trees for the Elven Druid can be used as an oracle. Perhaps, that is its chief purpose. That is up to you, really. For our own part in writing it, we learned a great deal about the tree families of the world and for us that was wonderful. We love trees. Not that we’ll remember it all or even most of it. But a passing acquaintance is nice. This book is a way, in a sense, of listening to the trees. It is not the same as being out in the trees and feeling their radiant and wondrous presence, nor ingesting some of the herbs that plants and trees use to enlighten us. However, not all of us, in the modern world, can be among the trees regularly or as much as we would like and this tome is, in that sense, designed to express their voice in the form of an oracle for those of us who are unable at present to spend a great deal of time among them. Although, in our hearts and imaginations, we are ever surrounded by the forest. And in that sense, this book is a forest, an elven woodland, an elvish glade, a living book of tree lore.”

Please go here to read more about this book and read a couple of excerpts from the 111 trees or tree groups with the Wizard Script, about the magic of the particular tree and what it means to draw it as an oracle.

In MANIFESTING ELFIN: Answers to questions about being an elf and following the Elven Path ,  we continue with a volume 2 of our question and answer series addressing the numerous questions about who the elves are and about the elven way that have been posed to us throughout the 40+ years of following the elven spiritual path and sharing with the world that we are elves in spirit incarnated in human bodies (also see volume 1 The Magical Realms of Elfin). In Manifesting Elfin, we explore further questions about elven tribes and relations; elven magic and healing; modern elven life; elven awakening and entering Elfin; the Shining Ones, past lives, and elven spiritual development; elves and gender; and some interesting elven perspectives.

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

Sticks and Stones, Feathers, Charms and Bones: An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1793823405

This book is another of our original Elven divination systems that we have created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners. It uses the ten Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. The original oracle board is featured on the cover of this book, which contains both an Inner and Outer Circle, each circle containing the Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves.
There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame. In this system, to cast the oracle, one may simply throw the sticks, stones, feathers, charms and bones upon the board and read the outcome according to the position in which they land. The oracle interpretations for this method are found within this book.
The introduction to the book explains how to make your own board (with instructions and a clear black and white image of the board included), how to gather and use your tokens (to represent your sticks, stones, feathers, charms and bones), and instructions on how to go about using this book to read and interpret the oracle. You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge

Our book on Amazon USA:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1977583733

Our book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1977583733
Creating Miracles In the Modern World is a book of Elfin Thaumaturgy, of miracle working and wonder creation, although for these elves we much prefer the idea of wonder working and creation to the idea of miracles. We love wonders. We love creating them; we love encountering them. This simple tome will explore the means by which we may do so. By which we mean not only creating the wondrous but also developing our ability to see and appreciate the wonders that are all around us. These things are tied together. The ability to see wonders promotes the creation of wonders.
Some have written in popular books that there is no such thing as magic. We wonder then what they think miracles are if not magic. Of course, what they mean is that human beings are incapable of magic and that only the Divine, which they perceive of in the form of the Christian demi-god and his retinue, can do magic, which is to say create miracles. We elves, naturally, disagree. We are elves; we are magic by our very natures. We don’t so much have to do magic; we are magic. We exude magic from our pores. Our every movement is magic. Magic is an effect of our being.
Creating Miracles In the Modern World shows you, whoever you are—whether you are an elf or Otherkin or consider yourself a member of normal humanity—that the more we develop our own inner divine nature, the more wondrous we become, and therefore in consequence the more we are able to recognize the subtle wonders of the world and the Universe. Thus, s’elf development is ever a part of the progress of the elfin magician who seeks, first and foremost, to master hir (his/her) own s’elf in order to have influence upon the world at large and not the other way around. For mastery of ones’elf (also called s’elf discipline) is, in fact, a most wondrous thing creating awe in those who observe it, inspiring them with possibility. And possibility, which is the true nature of the Divine Magic, is at the root of the miraculous and the wondrous. Every wondrous thing flows from its being that expresses itself through us. Thus it is that in the act of sub-creation and in some cases, perhaps, co-creation, we, like the Divine Magic itself, do manifest wonders.

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

Our Book on Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Living-Personal-Myth-Making-Faerie/dp/1497550394

Our Book on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Living-Personal-Myth-Making-Faerie/dp/1497550394

Living the Personal Myth is written by Zardoa Silverstar of the Silver Elves. It is 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. What makes this book particularly interesting is that Zardoa considers himself to be an elf, yet he uses scientific methods to psychologically examine his identification with the Otherkin world. He explores his personal myth and life as an elf and demonstrates how basing one’s myth on real events in one’s life empowers one’s myth and one’s magic. Whatever or whoever you are, this book is a potent guide to realizing one’s genuine, and potentially powerful, magical and fantastic, nature.
Zardoa uses dream work techniques, oracle readings, and active imagination to take us through a depth psychology exploration of his own experience in the individuation process of becoming a whole person whose unconscious and conscious elements are integrated and merged as a unique individual. Much of the material in this book is based on a depth process study he conducted at Sonoma State University in the Depth Psychology Department in 2005.
This work suggests “Personal Myth” to be an understanding of the self that incorporates the symbolic, imaginal and fantasy elements of the unconscious and accepts them as real within their own realms of being. It is the author’s belief that the Personal Myth is the unconscious’ understanding of the individual spirit’s Cosmic aspirations and potentialities. In that way, Personal Myth is seen as the personality of the unconscious and of the individual’s spirit.

Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders
Our book on Amazon USA:

Our book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elven-Psychology-Understanding-Evolutionary-Disorders/dp/1722787015

Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders is written from a unique elven perspective about the present day human condition, which includes an exploration of the psyché of both normal folk and elfae. We elves are elven by spirit, so our entrance into humanity is the addition of a new spiritual race, not a new physical race, and elves have been born in these modern times into all physical races, as well as most cultures and religions throughout the world. In fact, there are many who are following esoteric Ancient Wisdom Traditions, as well as some Tolkienists, who through the process of benevolent evolution, see ‘elf as the new normal’ or majority of humankind in the not so distant future. So, it is important to update many areas of academia that explore, express, and explain human life; psychology being one of these.
Thus this book expands the realms of modern psychology, which has never before included the elves and otherkin population as being real. If one says that they are an elf, most psychologists today will still hold you in suspect of having a delusionary disorder and try to evaluate you further. We explain in Elven Psychology why from a standard psychological point of view that believing you are an elf does not in itself constitute a disorder even in traditional psychology, and then we go much further and explore the disorders and psychological struggles that we observe in our modern society in both normal folk and elves/otherkin, along with the spiritual purposes of disorders and new perspectives for healing. .
Both authors, Zardoa and Silver Flame, have advanced graduate degrees in Depth Psychology and Art Therapy. We have used our academic and clinical backgrounds as well as life experiences living and sharing the Elven Way for over 40 years to identify a new way of perceiving the struggles of elves and otherkin living in the stressful modern world that sometimes results in psychological discomforts, as well as identifying the disorders of normal folk that have yet to be written about in modern psychology. While these are not the disorders you would find in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) that is published by the American Psychiatric Association as a standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders, in our opinion they need to be included to begin updating clinical psychology to include the existence of elven and faerie folk and our perspective. While we do not really support the use of categories like in the DSM to describe mental discomfort (people are far more complex than to limit our understanding of them by psychological classifications), we are adding the elven perspective and new classifications as a way of updating this important discipline. Since both of us had a number of graduate classes in the study of the DSM required for various clinical psychology degrees, we, Zardoa and Silver Flame, have long had many discussions together on how the elven perspective has been left out of the DSM. So here in Elven Psychology we share them with you in an often tongue in cheek fashion. If the elves were to write their own DSM, this book would be a good start!
We Silver Elves certainly do not condone any dislike for normal folk, but we also do not accept the persecution of the fae that has gone on so long by them. We feel that with some reflection and communication, our diverse human population can break through the dark spells of intolerance that have cast a long shadow upon us all and we can begin to accept each other, and even help each other find a beneficial place in society that strengthens and unites us. In the words of our sister Arwen, one of the founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters in the 70s, “This is the only humanity that we get, so we must learn to get along.”

Through The Mists of Faerie is a book about High Elven Magic. Not the magic of chants and spells and ceremonies, of which we’ve already written quite a bit, but of the Quest to become like those kindred of ours who we, and others, call the Shining Ones, and which most folks think of when they fantasize about what elves are—even when they deny that we are elven or that elves exist at all. The Shinning Ones are the evolved beings who guide the elven people upon their spiritual Path.
If you would enter Faerie, or Elfin as we often call it, this is a book about the Path that leads there. This is our most popular book, along with The Elven Way, and it is recommended as a first book to read of The Silver Elves books.

Our Book on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arvyndase-Silverspeech-Course-Magical-Language/dp/1475116071
Arvyndase is a complete elven language! This book contains a short course in using  Arvyndase, which means SilverSpeech, a 30,000+ word language created by the Silver Elves. There are nine chapters in the book with 30 lessons in each chapter or 270 lessons altogether. The book uses a process of word substitution to gradually introduce the student to the use of the language while it speaks about the language itself, its creation, and the philosophy of the Elves. It is a language primarily created to be used in magic spells, rituals, and incantations. This book also includes a chapter of spells in Arvyndase, three scripts for use with the language, and a small dictionary of words used in the book for easy reference. This book will tell you about how the language is formed, prefixes and suffixes used, and other aspects of the language. It also contains many observations about elven magic and philosophy.
Arvyndase was created primarily to use with magic so elfin magicians, wizards, enchanters, sorcerers and other magic wielders could create and chant their spells in a magical language. This is why the last chapter in the book contains 30 invocations that can be fitted into magical rituals. Also in the appendices you will find three scripts, Arvyndase, Sylvyn and Wizard’s Script that we created to be used with the language.

Elven Silver: The Irreverent Faery Tales of Zardoa Silverstar

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elven-Silver-Irreverent-Zardoa-Silverstar/dp/1490447210

These are a collection of short stories by Zardoa Silverstar, one of the Silver Elves. You will find within this book a western, a detective story, parodies of popular movie and television characters, and re-imaginings of traditional fairy tales all told from an elven point of view in Zardoa’s wry irreverent pixie style. We trust you will enjoy them as much as we do. The stories in Elven Silver were originally written to go along with the Elven Tree of Life to explore your magical being in our Elven Tree of Life. In the Elven Tree of Life, there are different types of elves and faeries that you can come out to be and there are choices of what kind of magic you wield. So these stories in Elven Silver were originally written to go with those.  We have also made the Elven Tree of Life into a book titled The Elven Tree of Life Eternal: A Magical Quest for One’s True S’Elf, much like a choose your own adventure book, to use to explore your magical nature.

Caressed By An Elfin Breeze: The Poems of Zardoa Silverstar 

Our Book on Amazon US:
https://www.amazon.com/Caressed-Elfin-Breeze-Zardoa-Silverstar/dp/1467967408

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Caressed-Elfin-Breeze-Zardoa-Silverstar/dp/1467967408
These are some of the poems of Zardoa Silverstar (approximately 90 poems). We say some of his poems because the vast majority of his rhymes are found in other books, particularly An Elfin Book of Dreams: A Magical Oracle of Faerie, which contains nearly 360 spells and enchantments, most of them rhymed. The poems in this volume of poems, however, are not found anywhere else.
Some of these poems are from songs that he wrote, many of them from over 30 years ago. Some of them are Haikus. Two are long myths, and one is really a rhymed children’s story (although this is not a book for children as some of the poems are erotic in nature and meant for mature readers). They are all, to us at least, evocative in their way of Elven Magic.

An Elven Game of Rhymes : Book Two of the Magical Poems of Zardoa Silverstar

Our Book on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elven-Game-Rhymes-Magical-Silverstar/dp/1490995099
This is book two of the poems of Zardoa Silverstar. Most of these poems in this current volume were inspired by the ancient Elven Poetry Game that Zardoa Silverstar created. You may ask, if Zardoa Silverstar created this game, how can it be ancient? We leave that as a puzzle for you to ponder. The Elven Poem Game goes like this: An elf writes a poem and another elf takes one line from that poem and creates another poem from it, and then the first elf takes a different line from that new poem and creates another poem, and so forth. Sometimes the line has to be changed somewhat to make it work with the new poem but most of the first lines, and thus the titles, of these poems came from other poems. Those that played this game with Zardoa were Evansyl, Syndareyn, Aradyn, Ladardyn, Bo Tooke, and even Zardoa’s 100 year old mother, Faith, contributed a couple of lines, without their inspiration most of these poems would not have come into existence and we thank you all.

What is the difference between the Elven Way and the Fairy Faith?

September 9, 2018
Zardoa_2018blog
“The Elven Way….is the practical manifestation and realization of one’s own fae and elfin nature in the world…..We don’t view Elfin and Faerie or elves and faeries or otherkin as being separate from us, as being foreigners, but as kindred to us, even in those cases where we do experience some of them in etheric or astral forms.”

Many folks who do believe in elves and faeries and in Fairie and Elfin do so from the outside looking in. They may have astral or etheric or intuitive interactions with the Faerie world but they often see themselves as being separate from it. They may channel information from those realms or have imaginal encounters or real encounters of our kind of ephermeal form but again, they see themselves as apart from the Fae, rather like someone of one country encountering a foreigner visiting their land and note that they are strangers of a different land and culture.

The Elven Way, however, is the practical manifestation and realization of one’s own fae and elfin nature in the world. We find Elfin within us and we express that energy through our own lives and beings. We don’t view Elfin and Faerie or elves and faeries or otherkin as being separate from us, as being foreigners, but as kindred to us, even in those cases where we do experience some of them in etheric or astral forms.

In this way, it is perhaps more like someone who meets a visitor from another land, but it is a land that one’s ancestors migrated from and one knows that one is related to this person, even if it is in some distant fashion. Thus it is the case in the United States of America, at least, a person might call thems’elves an African American, or an Italian American or a Japanese American and so forth. The same sort of thing can be observed in those who are French Canadian. There is a recognition of one’s ancestors in doing this and a connection to one’s ancient land and people. We, as it happens, are Elven American.

But the Elven Way is not only a cognizance of our essential elven nature, an acknowledgement that our beings are essentially based upon spirit rather than matter, it is a determined effort to manifest our culture in the world today. For some this is simply a fun thing to do. They wear elven fashions, put on pointed ears or faery wings and go to various festivals. And there is surely nothing wrong with this. In fact, we very much love our kindred who do this. Wish that we, ours’elves, could do more of it and certainly wish we could join our kindred in doing so. Pictures of elves in elven raiment with pointed ears are one of our favorite things.

But for us Elven culture is not merely fashion or fae-shion, as some call it, but a spiritual path, a way of being in the world, a way of viewing and experiencing the world and way of interacting with others that is based upon the way of ‘we who are the Fair Folk.’ Following this path has altered our entire lives. Not only has it brought elfin magic into our lives and elfin kindred into our lives, which is a great magic in it self, but it has informed the way we proceed in the world.

As far as we know that is not the case with those who practice the Fairy Faith, although it surely has set them apart from the vast majority who would and do ridicule them at times for believing in elves and faeries just as those same folks attempt to deride us for being elves and faeries. And that has pushed those of the Fairy Faith closer to Elfin, nearer to Faerie and closer, oh, so much closer, to us. Our hands and hearts are reaching out to them. They just need to grasp the reality that we are here and we are elves born in human bodies, although frequently they are determined that elves and faeries can only manifest in ephemeral form. Still, when they are ready, we are here for them. Oh, and if they want to give us presents, as ancient lore suggests they do, that’s okay with us as well.

“The Elves Say: The Magic doesn’t ever go away,
but it does sleep at times, dreaming of a better future for all.”
—The Silver Elves

And if you enjoyed the article above, we think you may very much enjoy reading our two most popular books on the wisdom teachings of the ancient Elven titled Through the Mists of Faerie: A Magical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of the Ancient Elven and
The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones:

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

Click on the link above to find out more about this book and to read excerpts.

The following is an example of writing from THROUGH THE MISTS OF FAERIE, page 62-65, from Part One:

Pure Awareness

What most people call consciousness is an awareness of their thoughts, beliefs and ideas. In the animal kingdom, consciousness is an instinctual awareness and lacks, for the most part, the beliefs, ideas and self-concepts found among humans. In the human being, the idea driven consciousness comes to fore but, as we’ve pointed out already, this is primarily directed and motivated by ideas ruled by our passions and emotionally connected ideas. We think ours’elves to be free but really our lives are controlled by these passions and beliefs.

When we are born into a particular life we come bearing the imprint on our souls of our pervious experiences. Obviously, when we are reborn we don’t have the same body. So our bodies, as they currently exist, clearly are not a part of our immortal s’elf, although they are composed of the energy that is, in its’elf, immortal. We are mostly formed from Star-stuff or Stardust, and elves are particularly aware of this fact. So when we come into a new life, our soul/spirit gathers around it the available stardust/energy to form a new body.

Since this stardust also bears the imprint of its past, in the form of a DNA coding directive, we also come into each life with a racial consciousness, formed in what is often called the Collective Unconscious. We also have a human consciousness, and bear the imprint of our evolution through various forms from all our previous incarnations. To become truly immortal beings, that is to say, immortal in the way that vampires are seen as being immortal, having a permanent immortal physical body, we need to integrate our consciousness with and merge with the consciousness of the energy that temporarily composes us. Of course, elves are often also seen as being Immortal, particularly in our more ephemeral forms, or our ethereal or etheric bodies combined with our astral bodies.

In time our bodies will become more resilient, less physical, and more like light, thus more ephemeral. The dimensions we will reside within, the dimension of Elfin/Faerie will be similar to living in a dream. We will have greater powers, such as the power to fly, and the ability to do things that we can now only dream of doing. And yet it will be every bit as real as a dream seems when we are in it, or every bit as real as this illusionary world that we currently abide within.

Also, just as clearly when we pass from one body to another, we don’t carry our thoughts, feelings and beliefs with us, or our memories, unless indeed we have obtained continuity of consciousness and have born our mind through the death process, which, honestly, these particular elves are nowhere near to achieving. Are you? If you are, you will be able to tell because you will be able to remain aware throughout the night as your body sleeps without losing consciousness. Sleep, as we said, is the little death. It is the reflection in microcosm, As Above/So Below, As Within/So Without, of the life death cycle.

For most individuals, the death experience and the assumption of a new stardust body is like suffering from total amnesia. You don’t remember anything. You don’t even know what you know. For instance, in amnesia, you may know how to type or play a piano, but don’t you know that you know how to do it until you sit down at a typewriter, or computer, or piano and suddenly find that typing or playing piano comes automatically to you. So, too, in moving from one life to another, we carry certain abilities with us. We don’t necessarily know that we know, rather we feel we were born with certain talents and abilities, and indeed we were. Usually, we find we learn these things very quickly and easily. These skills seem to come naturally to us.

Our feelings, not so much our emotions, but mostly our feelings, because they are by their nature essentially unconscious, come easily through the transitional state of death. We may not remember whom we loved or liked or disliked, but if we encounter them again or someone like them we immediately sense our attraction, or our repulsion. There are certain individuals that we know immediately even though it seems we have never met them previously. So until we are able to carry our memories from life to life consciously, they are still born in our soul, particularly those things that are most important to us, which is love and relationship, as well as having an instinctual recognition of and attraction to those with whom we have a karmic connection either positive or negative.

We can see this fact reflected in our current life in our conscious and unconscious. The basic consciousness is everything of which we are currently aware. But we also have an unconscious which composes everything of which we are not aware, which for most of us is far vaster than our conscious awareness. Consider all the things we don’t know, and add to it all the things, events, facts, people, experiences we have forgotten, which are stored in our brains but which, for most of them, are lost to us except at certain times. So, too, are our experiences stored in our soul, but only accessible under certain profound circumstances, although occasionally brought to mind by our encounters in the world, just as memories may be brought back into consciousness by a particular, song, smell, or experience. Our soul stores all our experiences and in that way is linked to the Akashic record, which records all experiences of all beings. The Akashic record is the library of the Soul of the Universe.

“The Elves Say: If you need help going higher, lift others up.” (on front cover)

“The Elves Say: You may go forward or backward, sideways or just seem to stand still, but still you are moving with the dance of the stars.”

“Elfin is surrounded by a sea of love, encompassed by a sky of near infinite possibility, exists in a forest of mystery and is ground on a tradition that is older than history and nearly as old as time.”

“The Elven Golden Rule: Do unto others more intelligently than they have done unto you.”

“If you do not find Faerie here, you are unlikely to find it there. But when you start to create it here, it follows you everywhere.”

“We elves are the magic that our ancestors did ages ago.”

“The Sun never sets in Elfin, the Sun never rises; it dances across the sky on its way to the Night’s Revels.”

“The Elves say: Even the Darkness hungers for the light. It may consume it, hide it, dim it, but in the end, it is ultimately transformed by it.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does One Have to be Brave and Courageous to Enter Elfin and Faerie?

July 20, 2018

silverorb2copy
“Elfin is less dangerous than Faerie and one is usually much safer there. Still, it does take a certain courage to live one’s life as an elf in the world …. For following the Elven Way and living one’s life as an elf in the world, automatically moves one closer to the realms of Elfin that
begin to appear about one, manifesting as
a consequence of one’s magic.”

2_3_7tinystar

Faerie, particularly, is like a dream world. One might have pleasant dreams or one may have nightmares. One doesn’t need to be courageous to sleep usually, but there are those who stay awake as much as possible for fear of their dreams. We’ve known some people like this. So, in a sense, it does take a bit of courage to intentionally go into the Faerie realms and take one’s chances on what one might encounter there for one might encounter a nightmare.

At the same time, many a fool has wandered into Faerie unknowingly and they weren’t necessarily brave in doing so. And many a kind and gentle soul has ventured into Faerie as well and been protected and guided by the fae folk who love them and find them intriguing. So, while being courageous is surely a strength and a power that some folks have, not all of us are courageous and while courage can help if one is determined to adventure into the Unseelie realms of Faerie, there is nothing that bars the timid from entering Faerie. If you have just a pinch of courage or simply are heedless of the dangers, you may still find your way there.

The same is true in a sense of Elfin although, for the most part, Elfin is less dangerous than Faerie and one is usually much safer there. Still, it does take a certain courage to live one’s life as an elf in the world and in doing so come closer to Elfin. For following the Elven Way and living one’s life as an elf in the world, automatically moves one closer to the realms of Elfin that begin to appear about one, manifesting as a consequence of one’s magic, whenever one does so.

The World of the normal folk can be a harsh and dangerous place at times for the elfin, as well as for nearly everyone else. So, we might ask ours’elves, does one have to be courageous to live in the world. And the answer is, well, it helps but there are many of us timid folk, doing our best to be brave in encountering the world, who really aren’t all that courageous really.

In many ways, it takes a great deal more courage to live in the normal world and among the normal folk than it does to live in Elfin or Faerie. They can be a dangerous lot and once you realize the truth, that the normal world is really just Faerie in disguise, it is all the same really. What can we do but be the best elves we can be and trust that our kindred will find us and take us home to Elfin where we will be truly safe.

And it should be remembered, there are different types of courage. Some folks might be physically brave and willing to stand up to potential violence and aggressiveness but not very brave morally or spiritual. They may face the enemy on the battlefield but don’t dare oppose or challenge the customs and dictates of the traditions of their society.

And some elves and fae just aren’t ready to live openly as elfae in the world and so do privately, in the closet, so to speak, and they still draw closer to Elfin and Faerie by doing so. They may not be brave enough to wave their elf flag, or banner, or gonfalon or whatever in the world, but by living the life Elfin they grow closer to it. And really, that is courage enough, isn’t?

The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

(Excerpt below from The Elven Way, page 141)
“As the awakened elf takes on greater initiation and begins to function creatively in cooperation with the Shining Ones and with Faerie itself, which is to say the Source, the great Magic, hir magical growth is quickened by the increased power and the intensity of the forces that sHe now uses for hir magical creations. Naturally, this causes a rapidity of evolutionary development that will not be found in your average normal person who most often not only doesn’t embrace change, as the adept elf does, but actively avoids it, in fact, is in many ways terrified by its possibilities. This acceptance of new energies and possibilities by the elf, tends to arouse here-to-fore un-accessed parts of hir being, awakening latent talents, powers and abilities. Remember most humans only use a small portion of their brain capacity, and this increase in energetic connection tends to illuminate greater portions of our brains. In time, this development will prove evolutionarily significant.”

“There are a number of effects of this evolutionary initiatory development for the adept elf, the first of which is that since the elf’s powers are being heightened, the elf thus has more power to do good, as well as being faced with greater temptation, which is to say opportunity, to misuse this power. This is where the development of magical maturity becomes so very important. The elf comes to understand that magic is the use of will power to create effects in the world, but also that initiation requires the development of magical and enlightened intent. It is not enough to be able to create change according to one’s will, one needs to create the type of change that will rebound positively for hir and all others and bring hir ever closer to Faerie by increasing hir awareness of and actualization of hir own true s’elf.”

Zardoa_Quotes4

SMILING FACES . . . . . .

Know the truth in a world of seeming
Elfin manifest all about
Waken now from nightmares dreaming
Elfin puts all fears to rout.

Smiling faces do surround you
Brothers, sisters, cousins, too
Faerie, elf, and pixie beaming
As you realize anew.

The truth of life is one with meaning
A meaning found in love’s embrace
Beneath the trees that are ever gleaming
Radiant upon each elven face.
—Zardoa Silverstar

What Say the Elves about the question ‘Does one need to suffer to learn compassion?’

June 17, 2018
compassion_blog “. . . as Tolkien pointed out about we elven, the answer is both yes and no and perhaps, maybe, , , . the answer seems to be, so typically elven, that it depends upon the individual and their level of spiritual development.”

It is clear that there are individuals who don’t seem to evidence any understanding or compassion for others until they have suffered as those individuals have, have ‘walked a mile in their shoes,’ so to speak, and experienced what they have experienced and thus, in doing so, gained real insight in the predicaments and situations of others. But the question here is, is it always necessary, as some folks seem to think, to suffer in order to be compassionate?

But before we answer that directly, let us come about it around the long way, as elves are often prone to do, taking the scenic route as we will, and say that suffering does not in itself make one compassionate. It should be quite clear that there are many who have suffered, who are suffering, who feel no compassion for others at all. They may complain about their own suffering, but they don’t extend that unto others in similar situations. Prisons and the experience they provide is surely an example of this. So, certainly, suffering, in and of itself, doesn’t automatically develop compassion in an individual. The Nazis, for instance, who had suffered greatly due to economic sanctions after the First World War, didn’t have compassion for Jewish people even though the Jewish had suffered at the hands of others for over two thousand years. Instead, the suffering the Nazis experienced made them even less compassionate. As the old InBerlinMonumentZardoa_Silversaying goes, misery loves company and those who suffer often only want to have others do so as well, not to have them become compassionate but to make them suffer, too. (Although we must add that in a recent trip to Berlin we witnessed that Germany has evolved far past this lack of compassion and have dedicated monuments in Berlin to their holocaust victims to show some restitution, see photo to the left.)

On the other hand, Siddhārtha Gautama was raised as a Prince and was kept as free as possible from every hardship and any suffering. In fact, those who suffered were actively kept from his sight, and yet when he did encounter the suffering, quite by accident, he felt the impact of the suffering of others (or we might say he suffered seeing the suffering of others because he already had compassion upon birth, perhaps he had suffered in a past life and learned compassion with that suffering) and became curious about Life, about suffering and its causes, and that led him on his quest for enlightenment and in time helped develop the compassion that had already stirred in him to greater depths of understanding and the pronouncement of that realization into principles that could help one overcome and escape from suffering.

So, beloved elfin kindred, the answer is quite clearly that one doesn’t necessarily need to suffer to learn compassion, at least not in the present lifetime they are living. However, at the same time, it seems that there are individuals who simply won’t learn compassion without suffering as others have, and some who have no compassion for anyone but themselves.

Thus, as Tolkien pointed out about we elven, the answer is both yes and no and perhaps, maybe. Some folks can learn compassion without suffering. Leaders of revolutions are often the children of the upper classes who have compassion for the suffering of those less fortunate in their genetic privilege, while other folks when confronted with the most terrible suffering simply hide themselves away from it, doing the exact opposite of the Buddha who sought it out in order to understand it. So the answer seems to be, so typically elven, that it depends upon the individual and their level of spiritual development.

Why Are So Many Modern Elves So Into Fashion?

May 12, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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