MANIFESTING ELFIN:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf
and Following the Elven Path, Volume 2
by The Silver Elves

 

Manifesting Elfin is found here to purchase on Amazon USA
and also sold here on Amazon UK.

We Silver Elves are happy to announce today our latest book publication! In MANIFESTING ELFIN, 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.

Some of the specific questions answered in Manifesting Elfin are: Are Elfae human? Did all elves come from the stars? What do elves see as the difference between spirit and soul? What will elves be like in the future? What is Paltareon, the far memory of the Elves? What effect do our magical body parts (wings, elf ears, tails, scales etc.) in etheric form have upon otherkin?  Can we become elves? What is the difference between the Elven Way and the Fairy Faith? Who are the Shining Ones and how do we communicate with them? Are all otherkin fae?  How often do elves do magic? Do elves heal with crystals? What are the secrets of the elves? What do the Silver Elves think of Tolkien’s idea concerning the creation of the universe? What’s the difference between Seelie and Unseelie Fae? What’s the difference between Unseelie Elves and Dark Elves? Can an elf have a soul mate who is human? How do we elves deal with the discrepancy between the reality of our manifestation and the legends and lore about us? Do elves think that Magick has gone away? How do you gently awaken a sleeping elf kin? Are elves compatible to Druids? How do elves deal with our homesickness for Elfin? Do Elves meditate and, if they do, how? How do elves raise children? Are elves and faeries part of the deva kingdom? Who were the Elf Queen’s Daughters? And, Are elves a fiction-based religion or a spiritual path? See the Table of Contents of Manifesting Elfin listed below this introduction for a complete list of questions addressed in this book.

Most often, a person has questions as one tries: to decide if one is ones’elf an elf or is some otherkin; to understand what it means to be an elf and how one might know of one’s elfin nature; to understand one’s experience of having an Elven Awakening; to determine how elven magic is alike or different from that performed by other spiritual groups; to understand the keys to elven magic and enchantment; to explore more about being an elf in a human body and how this is possible; and to learn about how elves live and relate to mankind and otherkin. So if you are curious about modern elves, particularly about The Silver Elves and their philosophy and magick, then you will surely find many of your questions answered in both the first volume, The Magical Realms of Elfin, and also many more in this volume two, Manifesting Elfin.

What is the Relationship of the Elves to the Trees?

April 12, 2019
ZandSIlverNZ
“Wood or sylvan elves naturally adore the trees. We see the trees as our kindred and friends, even if, for the most part, they are rather shy, quiet and meditative friends. . . . As we like to say, we Silver Elves are the elves of Moonlight, Starlight and the Radiance of the Forests. So, it is only natural that trees are much beloved to us. . . . And yet at that moment, when we happen out into the rural areas, and we look upon the sky at night and see thousands of stars gleaming above us, how can we elfae but feel moved to the depths of our souls and stirred to remember that while we live upon the Earth we also live among the stars, which to our minds are like shining trees in the sky.”

     Elves, of course, love and admire nearly all of Nature, and so naturally we love the trees, the forests, the woodlands and every little copse and hedge, spinney, holt and boscage we come across. But we also love the oceans, the seas, the rivers and all their inhabitants. We love the mountains, the skies, the waterfalls, the wind and much else. Which is why, while we are on the subject of loving things of Nature, we also love Mankind, even though we are sometimes less than flattering in our description of them. So, of Men, while we admire them at times, much in the way that we might admire a lion in its beauty and majesty, we are ever cautious until they have demonstrated that they are of the friendly sort and not the unnecessary and unreasonable aggressors that they can be.

     But while we elves do tend to admire most of Nature, which in a sense really includes nearly all of existence, we do have our preferences. Wood or sylvan elves naturally adore the trees. We see the trees as our kindred and friends, even if, for the most part, they are rather shy, quiet and meditative friends. We mourn when we see them unnecessarily cut down; and on those occasions when we’ve encountered Men cutting down a tree just because it is obstructing their view and we asked that they might consider the life of the tree, they’ve merely laughed at us. Men can be a famously narcissistic bunch and everything in the world centers around them in their own minds. In fact, for the longest time, much of Mankind assumed the Earth was the center of the Universe and the Sun circled around the Earth, which is to say around Mankind, not only because, on the surface of things, it kind of looks that way to the casual observer, but also because Men were on the Earth and thus, of course, the Sun and its rotation was all about them and their lives. They even create their gods in their own images, although, they claim it is the other way around.

     Most of the elves that we Silver Elves have encountered in our lives are wood elves, or part wood elves. As we like to say, we Silver Elves are the elves of Moonlight, Starlight and the Radiance of the Forests. So, it is only natural that trees are much beloved to us. But ocean elves especially love the seas; river elves adore the rivers, streams and creeks; lake elves love the ponds and pools; and mountain elves naturally love the high places of the Earth.

     We must say that when we put out our Elven, Faerie, Fae Otherkin tribe survey, we were surprised at how many mountains elves there actually were. At the same time, most of them love the mountain woodlands. They want forested mountains with waterfalls. And many of those elfin and fae who choose the seaside or rivers or lakes as their preferred abodes, also wanted there to be a forest that they could live in near the ocean, by the river, or alongside the lake.

     Star elves, we would assume, must surely be enraptured by the stars and while, as yet, Mankind and others haven’t found a way to destroy the stars as yet, certainly the star elves must feel a certain loss when they are in cities and towns where the city lights make the stars nearly invisible. And yet at that moment, when we happen out into the rural areas, and we look upon the sky at night and see thousands of stars gleaming above us, how can we elfae but feel moved to the depths of our souls and stirred to remember that while we live upon the Earth we also live among the stars, which to our minds are like shining trees in the sky.

“If you have never been to Elfin, it is hard to understand,
the magic that abides there and permeates the land,
that from the trees does radiate like star light from within,
enchantment woven from true love vast wonders to portent.”

“To the elves, the trees are like stars shining upon the Earth.
Thus, we sometimes call them the Earth Stars.”
—The Silver Elves

A passage about the Tree of Life Eternal and Happiness Everlasting from:

liberAelphweb

Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical, by The Silver Elves, chapter on “Druidry: In Honor of the Trees.”

“. . . . study the Qabalah, also called the Tree of Life, and this is surely a good thing and well worth your effort, beloved children of our magic. But that system, like all intellectual systems, is merely a metaphor for a greater reality and one would be unwise to think that in understanding it intellectually that one truly knows and understands. Study therefore the Yggdrasil tree, as well as the two trees in the Garden of Eden that represent the two trees of which Tolkien wrote, one of Silver White, the other Golden, for these are all symbols of the two trees of the Spirit and the Soul, the Tree of Life Eternal and the Tree of Happiness Everlasting, which are themselves but metaphors for the great goals set before us, which motivate every being that lives (see the Silver Elves Through the Mists of Faerie).”

“Know that these, while worthy studies, are only a part of what you need to know and most of that by experience rather than intellect. While intellect is valued in Faerie, it is but one aspect that is celebrated here. We value kindness more than cleverness, sincerity more than wit, and emotional development and maturity more than great knowledge. But in hearing this don’t think we do not value cleverness, wit or great knowledge. But we also value body awareness and development, soulful awareness, vibrant spirit and much else. The intellect is important but though the world may be said to have been cast into existence through the evocation of the logos, the magical word given and creating life, know that it was uttered in the Silence that is the Womb of all things with the power of Intent and Will and it was Sung in Rhyme and Rhythm.”

“But most of all, in studying the Trees of Life Eternal and Happiness Everlasting you should speak to the actual trees and more importantly listen to them. As the shamans tell us (The Way of the Shaman by Michael James Harner) the greatest magical knowledge comes from the trees. They are first and foremost Healers. Not only do they provide us with nearly everything we need to heal our bodies, they also provide the revelations by which we may heal our souls, revive our spirits, and bring comfort to anguished minds and hearts. They provide us with the oxygen we breath and without them we would perish from this Earth in the forms we currently inhabit.”

“Tolkien wrote that the elves first taught the trees to speak, and this may be so, although it might be more accurate to say the elves learned the language of the trees, but once we had done so they revealed to us wondrous things, for they are ancient and wise and you need but walk among them to be reminded of this. All our sages have said this, go into Nature, go speak to the trees and most of all listen well to them for they are our continual benefactors. But know that when they speak, they speak through their bark, their vines, their leaves, their blossoms and their fruit.”

“You do not need a great intellect to enter Faerie but a pure heart and a courageous spirit. But a truly great mind is also an open mind and that opens the door to Faerie, when it is combined with the hunger of the soul that ever seeks to find our own.”

—From Liber Aelph: Words of Guidance from the Silver Elves to our Magical,
by The Silver Elves

Faerie Tale . . . . .

Truth sits in the sand
the bride and groom hold hands
the bridesmaid tells of loves that she has lost
Cupid’s arrow’s sharp
as it does pierce her heart
but in love’s blush she does not count the cost.

A Faery tale comes true
as Faery tales will do
in Faery where the Elder race doth dwell
on islands of the sea
beneath the banyan tree
every lingering sorrow
is made well.

We’re ever one where ever we roam,
and where ever we are

And for further reading:

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

“A man came upon Faerie but knew not it was there,
’cause he didn’t believe and just didn’t care,
so he missed all the fair folk and the magic they bring,
as the elves kept on dancing and the faeries took wing.”
—The Silver Elves

Elf Tribes: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin

March 20, 2019

elftribes
ELF TRIBES:
The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind
and Kin

This book is found here to purchase on Amazon USA
and also here on Amazon UK.

ELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin is dedicated to tribes of the Elven, but we have also created a companion book FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. If you are of faerie, fae or otherkin, you may wish to check it out. And if you are interested in elves, fae and otherkin and in the phenomenon of the awakening in our modern times of the magical folk, you will surely enjoy reading both of these books and delighting in the many magical variations of tribes that are here among us.

Modern day “elfae” find it to be very important to have a strong magical narrative of their own in a world that often likes to tell you who you are and who you are not, and mostly quite inaccurately so. It is our hope that reading the over 150 magical narratives of elven tribes contained in Elf Tribes will inspire you, our kindred brothers and sisters, to begin if you have not already done so to create your own narrative or add to what you already remember and intuit.

Over the last 30 years or so, we Silver Elves have given out over 6,000 elf names in our magical language Arvyndase to individuals who requested them. For years, many of the individuals who requested an elf name would also write to us and say that they felt that they were elven but didn’t know any more about their elven or fae tribe. And for years, we told them that they should trust their imaginations and intuitions and while that is still very good advice, we realized in time that this was not any easy thing to do for many of these kindred of ours who were often newly awakened and needed a bit of guidance upon the path.

In response to this, we created the Elf, Faerie, Otherkin Survey, as a means of eliciting the information that we needed from these individuals so we might create a narrative for them about their own magical tribe or clan of Elves, Fae or Others that was germane to them and as close as we could get based upon their responses and our own intuition. The magical narratives we created and that compose Elf Tribes are based upon the memories or intuitions and thus the responses we were given to the survey about those of “elven nature”. We would like to thank all the elves who participated in this survey, over 150, and we truly loved their creative responses. Of course, we used our own imagination and intuition in putting their replies into a consistent whole, which was often a challenge but a challenge we very much enjoyed. These books contain only the narratives we have written for people filling out this survey and no personal names are associated with them in the publication. In fact, we do not keep people’s names, so your questionnaire is completely confidential.

You will find as you read through the many narratives in this book that the elves are beautifully varied in their magic, healing abilities, uses of stones and crystals and herbs for healing, art, lifestyle, ancient ways, governance, love of nature, relationship to mankind, preferences, symbols and skills. In putting the tribes and clans in categories, which is not easy concerning elves, we choose to use locales and environments they preferred as a means of doing so. So the book is divided into seven sections according to the basic regions that the elves indicated they each preferred to live in, which includes: the Mountain Elves, the Forest Elves, the Water Elves, the Trooping Elves (traveling between various regions), the Desert Elves, the Plains Elves, and the City Elves.

Perhaps, you will find your people as you read through this book, or kindred quite like them. At any rate, you can always do the survey yours’elf, or do it again if you feel you have come to a greater understanding of yours’elf and our peoples in the meantime (or gentle-time as we elves often say).

Below you will find the Table of Contents, followed by some examples of magical narratives of a few elf tribes in the book:

Here below are some examples of magical narratives from Elf Tribes.

Excerpt From Chapter 3:

Mountain Stream Elves

     The Lynåthe (pronounced lynn – nah – thee) elves of the Idynåwae (eye – den – nah – way) tribe live in the high mountains near cascading streams among the redwoods and oaks. They are reckoned to be very high elves, highly attuned to the Shining Ones and fast evolving toward those higher, more subtle and more expansive realms of being. They are guided by a Queen and her counselors. They sometimes call her Star Opal or Lady Opal or sometimes Lady Starlight and it is said that a light shines from the center of her forehead like a star and that she is a Shining One manifest among them to guide them.

Theirs is a very serene realm. One often hears instrumental stringed music played there, as they pursue a variety of magics and arts. They are writers, diviners, and much else but, like all elves, they weave their magic in and through all that they do. They call this weaving starlight and those with second sight or elfin eyes can literally see the light of the stars radiating from the art they create or even the clothes/costumes that they make. Thus, like the Shining Ones, they radiate magic wherever they go. They are the living light of Elfin in motion.

Like most elves, they don’t worship gods, but they do honor all beings whomever they may be on whatever level of development and evolution they have reached thus far and they do their best to help and uplift them. As they say, “Everyone needs a bit of starlight in their lives.”

They are known to have a particular fondness for passion fruit, from which they have developed hybrids that can grow readily in the mountains and which are fleshier and even juicier than the typical passion fruit. They call their fruit Lover’s Kiss. They also have their own, very fragrant version of the Gardenia, which they call the Light of Love flower, because it is said that when soulmates come near the flower, it begins to glow. Of course, those who wish to know if they are indeed soulmates often visit these flowers together.

Despite living in the mountains, where it can get quite cold at times, they never wear fur. This due to their enlightened understanding of life and their appreciation for the life of all creatures who are all, to their minds, on the evolutionary path. Rather, they have developed very effective quilting that not only keeps them very warm but is quite beautifully decorated with embroidery, often of foxes, ravens or dragons in gold or silver thread, much in the fashion of the ancient Chinese, Koreans and Japanese. These too, of course, are woven with starlight.

From Chapter 4:

The Mountain Valley Elves

     The Nerdathyn (pronounced near – day – thin) elfae of the Sorynthele (soar – ren – thee [rhymes with fee] – lee) tribe organize thems’elves into packs and like to live in the woodland mountains, in hidden valleys when possible, where they pursue their various magical arts and in particular a quest for knowledge about all things. While they practice various forms of magic they are very wizardly and scientific in their quest for knowledge. Their world is very much like a college or university community. Each pack is usually dedicated to a particular field or study, although a basic liberal education, which is to say a general and wide understanding of all the fields of study is emphasized for all. The Nerdathyn say: all knowledge is power, and nothing learned is wasted. Also, it is commonly said among them that one should never pass up an opportunity to learn.

In many ways, theirs is a very serene world. Their villages are often filled with the sound of music coming from harps, cellos, pianos, and violins. The trees surrounding their realm have aeolian harps in them, so the winds and breezes play music as well. This is usually instrumental music since they are most often busy studying and lyrics would interrupt their concentration.

Theirs is a democratic society, however, they are an ancient people and there isn’t really much to vote upon. They each pursue their own intellectual and creative interests and are too busy to get involved in much else. They do have a basically positive view of mankind and do their best, when possible, to pass on books to them that they may find enlightening and uplifting.

They do ceremonial magic that revolves around spirits that are similar to or corollaries of various Celtic Deities. In fact, it is quite likely that some of the Celtic tribes got their idea of these demi-gods from these folk and may have learned many of the Druidic arts from them as well.

They possess two great magical treasures, which are really four, that they use in their shamanic practices. The first is the Hides of Changing. This is actually two hides, the skin of the bear and the wolf, which enables them to shapeshift into those beings for a time and roam around the forest. The second are the Feathers of Flying, one is a crow feather and the other a raven, which allows them to see through the eyes of these creatures and control their bodies for a while so they may go forth and observe at a distance. All these treasures were gifted to them by Nature and the Shining Ones.

From Chapter 7:

The Forest Elves

     The Nerdathyn (pronounced near – day – thin) elfae of the Sorynthele (soar – ren – thee [rhymes with fee] – lee) tribe organize thems’elves into packs and like to live in the woodland mountains, in hidden valleys when possible, where they pursue their various magical arts and in particular a quest for knowledge about all things.

All these treasures were gifted to them by Nature and the Shining Ones.

From Chapter 16:

The Ocean Elves

     The Brynweyn (pronounced brin – wee – in) elves of the Uldånta (yule – dahn – tah) folk are high elven who have dedicated their lives for ages to the reinvigoration and reseeding of planets and peoples that have suffered from natural disasters and just need a bit of help to get things going again. In that way, they are sort of Mother Theresa(s) of the Galaxies.

It is interesting to these elves that their society is essentially based upon volunteerism. They have no government, no authorities, they just spontaneously join together to work on a particular project of planetary rebuilding and reseeding and, of course, they join together to just be together for they delight, as most elves do, in each other’s company.

When a situation arises, those who are interested in helping out set out together to get the work done. Being very psychic as individuals, there is little that needs to be said among them. They just know instinctively what the others think and feel. And being very s’elf motivated, one will feel drawn to set forth and the others who are interested will join in, usually in a rather joyous way, for they take joy in what they do and are ever seeking to promote benevolent evolution for all that they encounter.

And in keeping with their basic anarchistic philosophy, they generally have little to do with the various demi-gods that exist in the Universe. They refer to them as Those Folks Down Stream, and think that these demi-gods are really too full of themselves, too hungry to be worshiped or obeyed (the dark ones) and are just too self-centered and often callous for the most part to be of any real value in The Work.

The Uldånta usually create sanctuaries near the ocean, often on mountain ledges overlooking the sea, and generally with waterfalls cascading down from their heights. Much like Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings if Rivendell was on a sea coast. Here they may retreat when they have completed a particular restoration project and rest and enjoy thems’elves until they feel called again. For though they are a very logical people, they hear the pleas of those who have faced disaster and feel a calling in their hearts that prompts them to go forth and do all that they can to help and heal. They are a deeply compassionate people.

Each one of them that participates in a particular project is usually granted a Heart Stone. These are of different colors and sometimes different minerals according to the project one worked on, rather like merit badges in a way, but merit badges that have real magical power linked to them. These stones might be made of Iolite, Ruby, Larimar or any number of other jewels, depending upon the metaphysical properties of the stone and they psychically link all those who used their powers and their magic together to make the world, or a part of the world or Universe, a better place for everyone. Thereafter, those who wear the same stones are ever psychically connected.

But they also have a magical treasure that they call the Sword of Creation, which they say was once wielded by a great legendary hero of their people called Dåntekyl (don – tee – kill), who used this shimmering sword first to cleave his people from the Darkness and thus create a realm of Light and Magic in the Universe. In other words, he, with his heroic comrades, according to the legends of the Uldånta, first created a separate place for elves and all those who wish to live in a better and more enlightened world. A place we call Elfin.

     The Onåle (pronounced oh – nah – lee) elves of the Lytalta (lit – tale – tah) clan usually live near the northern oceans. In fact, these are reindeer folk and are sometimes mistaken for the Sami people, or Laplanders, of Northern Sweden and Finland and sometimes northern Russia. They live in the forests near the arctic seas but also often wander the tundra and thus are associated with the various Eskimo tribes of that region.

They also have a close association with the arctic foxes. In fact, you will often find that these foxes live with them and travel with them as familiars. Thus, they feel a very close kinship to the kitsune fox shape shifters, as well. Sometimes people refer to them as the Fox Elves, or the White Fox Elves, and this is surely okay with them.

They don’t practice much in the way of body modification but some of them will have tattoos, usually of foxes, bears, reindeer, or trees, and sometimes a crescent moon. In fact, their flag shows a white crescent moon upon a purple background with ivy climbing up the sides, although some of them have the image of moss and others of lichen instead of ivy, depending on their particular pack, for these folks mostly go about in packs. Tribal gatherings are somewhat rare and usually only happen once or twice a year when the weather allows it.

Because of the pack orientation and the fact that some of them live and travel alone, they don’t have much in the way of government. Although, in certain ways, the foundation of their government, like many modern societies, is based upon barter. They work out everything by trading for this or that. It is essentially a compromise system that seems to work well for them. And if you happen to be one who doesn’t agree with some decision, you can always go off on your own. After all, these are a very hardy people and very independent.

While they are now Earth born, their myths tell them that they originally came from another star system or another dimension. They are not really sure which, but they have adapted and acclimated here quite well although, for the most part, they avoid most of Mankind and the normal world, and yet they do go into cities from time to time to trade for those things that they need. They just don’t like staying in cities for very long. The old saying: It’s a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there, may have originated from these folks.

As far as magic goes, they are still elven shamanic druidic water witches. The word shaman comes from the Tundra Eskimo peoples, and these elves still practice these ancient techniques for magical transformation and transmutation. One of the reasons they like living in the northern climes is that they draw down the moon magic into the water in the form of ice and snow, then they shape the ice or snow into an image of what they desire. When spring comes and the ice melts their wishes come true.

Also, you will likely see ice statues in their realms. For while other folk make statues of stone or other solid material, these folk have ever carved in ice and while their art doesn’t always last, they are continually creating new art to decorate their environment. Thus, their world is ever transforming and becoming new.

How do we Silver Elves Deal with People Who Think We Are Roleplaying Being Elves?

March 1, 2019
zardoaears-1
“If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.”

      How do we Silver Elves deal with people who think we are roleplaying being elves?  We really don’t mind. Generally, we let people think what they want about us. It’s usually easier to let them have their preconceptions, prejudices and unwarranted assumptions than it is to attempt to enlighten them about things that really won’t make much difference in their lives, except for the fact that they would be more enlightened and more aware of the truth of our nature and reality in general. But that can be frightening for them. And we elves really aren’t here to scare people, at least, most of the time, we’re not.

     And in fact, elves in particular and perhaps faeries and others also, often do enjoy ‘roleplaying’ as elves or others even though we are elves. It is certainly possible that elves may role play other beings as well. In fact, in our experience most folks that do role play and cosplay and such, usually have at least a bit of fae in their souls.

     We have found that orcs, goblins and such, and especially ‘real men,’ tend to look down upon those who do cosplay or roleplay. They take themselves far too seriously for that and scorn others who do not. Which is not to say that there aren’t those who might cosplay orcs or goblins, or that there aren’t any orcs, goblins, grimlins who do cosplay, although grimlins would surely be the least likely to do so. ‘Serious’ doesn’t begin to describe the way these grimlins take themselves. Fanatical barely scratches the surface.

     And surely elves might cosplay orcs or goblins. When elves saw the goblins in the Mines of Moria in the Fellowship of the Ring movie, we couldn’t help think what lovely creatures they actually were, if it was not for the fact that they were so hostile and under the sway of Wicked Magic. We thought, as we elves often do, if they were just nice folks we could be quite good friends really. It is only their hostility to us and their ignorant, mindless and persistent destruction of the environment that keeps us from embracing them.

     Traditionally, it is said that we elven folk and our fae cousins are indeed rather playful folk and that is surely true in its way. Like most things about the elven, however, it is a provisional truth, a partial truth and contains its opposite as well, because we can be quite serious folk and we are surely seriously intent upon spreading our magic into the world and manifesting Elfin upon the Earth once more for the betterment of all. And not a moment too soon either.

     There might be those among us who therefore are dismayed that so many folks ridicule our elfin being, individuals who view us and really think they are quite right in their scorn, without a moment’s thought about how rude and ignorant they are being. The idea that there may actually be elves in the world or that we might really be elves, is something that they simply cannot allow themselves to contemplate. The truth is that they are afraid, as so many folks are, of social ridicule and rejection and while we elves are not fond of those things either, we prefer the freedom to be ours’elves to the limitation of social conformity.

     At the same time, we know from long experience that ridicule is just part of the behavioral propensity at this point of the evolutionary stage of many humans. They sometimes kill people for being different than they, for being a gay or transsexual person or a different race, for thinking differently than they do, believing differently, even for looking differently. So, when we find individuals who simply are unable to accept that the identity we have chosen to manifest within in this world is one that they don’t believe even exists, we simply leave ‘sleeping dogs lie,’ as the saying goes. Or as we elves might say, don’t stir rabid dogs.

     If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.

     We elves love cosplay, although we don’t tend to mimic characters so much as create our own. In that way we are rather like Tauriel who wasn’t written about in The Hobbit but implied. Our characters are implied by the nature of Elfin.

“We really shouldn’t be surprised when we tell normal people we are elves and they don’t believe us. After all, we’ve spent ages casting a glamor upon them to convince them we don’t exist. Their disbelief is really just an affirmation of the power of our enchantments.” —from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves

We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of another of our original Elven divination systems that we have created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners:
STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS,CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future.

This oracle uses thesticksandstonescover 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 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.

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.

The Book of Elven Runes: A passage into Faerie at:
http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfrunebook.html

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

Elven Geomancy: An Ancient Oracle of the Elven Peoples
for Divination and Spell Casting
at:
http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAgeomancy.html

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 that you can perform in order to increase the potency of what you wish to achieve.

STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS, CHARMS AND BONES uses the ten Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base.

Did All Elves Come From the Stars?

August 20, 2018
redwizard_Zardoa
“We may have come from the stars ages ago,
but now we are Earth elves and quite happy to be so,
if we can just keep the parasites from consuming it all.”
(The above is a photo of the original acrylic painting
titled “Red Wizard” by Zardoa Silverstar of The Silver Elves)

2_3_7tinystar

Elves often call thems’elves Star Children and various other names that indicate our starry heritage and in the sense that everything that exists on Earth is essentially composed of Stardust, as the astronomer Carl Sagan pointed out, then yes, all elves, all faeries, all men and women and dogs and cats and trees, and everything else came from the stars.

There are large numbers of elfae who relate to the idea of having come to the Earth from Sirius or the Pleiades or some other constellation. There are elfae who will tell you that they came from this or that planet that no one has ever heard of or which only exists in a science fiction or fantasy novel. This attraction to fiction and fantasy is, from an elven point of view, often because when we pass from lifetime to lifetime we forget much of the details of what seemed so very important previously and so we instinctively are attracted to those things that are most like what we are and were. Such memories may not be so much literal as they are symbolic (not that we’re implying that some people don’t have clear past life recall, some clearly do). But quite often what elfae are indicating is that they feel like aliens among the normal folk and that they are certain that they must have come from elsewhere because we just don’t fit in very well here.

At the same time, it is important to remember that we are often pictured as Nature spirits and this is not just something that is put upon us from the outside. It is true that mankind has frequently written of us as spirits of Nature, and even before he learned to write, he related to us as the flitting lights and shadows of the forest often huddling around their fires in superstitious fear. However, it must be pointed out that we also embrace Nature with a fervor that is way beyond the adoration that Men occasionally offer it. We mourn the loss of the trees, we fight to save the whales and other endangered species. We feel one with Nature and its wildness and find our souls and spirits awakened when we are there. We are tree huggers and rock lovers and we adore the Earth and Nature in ways that most of mankind doesn’t seem to be able to understand as yet as they casually exploit and destroy it.

Of course, it may be pointed out that most of us came here from the stars long before mankind began to wake his mind from foggy primate consciousness. We were lurking in the forest and plunging to the depths of the ocean before he even gave those things names. So, our love of Nature and the Earth and the natural, doesn’t negate our starry heritage.

Still, are all elves from the stars? We think not and the reason we think this primarily is because we know some elves who feel they are from the Earth. They were born here, arose with this planet, are Earth elves and proud of it, if a gentle and practical acceptance of this fact may be called proud. Perhaps we should say, they are very comfortable being Earth elves. Have no need or desire to return to the stars. Have no feeling of having come from the stars and are quite happy, well as happy as elves can be in this insane world, to be here.

In a sense, we are all Earth elves now. While we may have come from a different planet on a different star system aeons ago, we were all, as far as these elves can discern, born here on Earth in this lifetime. In that way, we are rather like Americans whose ancestors came from Germany or Japan, or China or Tibet or wherever. We are Italian Americans, or Asian Americans or Native Americans or First Nations Peoples if we migrated here so long ago that we were the first inhabitants other than the creatures of Nature, which includes the elves.

We elves acknowledge our ancestry while embracing our current life and manifestation. And, it is something to note, we elves often were our ancestors. So perhaps it is more like the fact that we used to live in one city or state or country and we migrated to another and now we embrace our new home. We are Earth elves because, ultimately for most of us, we chose to be here.

We know that there are some elven, the Elenari for instance, who believe they were essentially forced to flee to this world. They were chased from their home world and found refuge on this planet. But, this is now home and these elves, at least, are making the most of it. We may have come from the stars ages ago, but now we are Earth elves and quite happy to be so, if we can just keep the parasites from consuming it all.

And for the star enchanters we suggest The Elven Star Oracle: A System of Divination for Star Enchanters :

elfstarbookpic
THE ELVEN STAR ORACLE is an original divinatory system created by the Silver Elves invoking the 88 major constellations and the blessings of the Shining Ones for guiding one through the world and ever closer to the realization of Faerie. It is called “The Elven Star Oracle” because it is based upon the seven pointed Elven Star, sometimes also called the Faery Star, and the areas between the points, overlaid on the dimensional manifestation of Faerie and the realms that are linked to it.

If you enjoyed the article above “Did Elves Come From the Stars” and wish to learn more about the evolution of both elven kin and humanity, we suggest DISCOURSES ON HIGH SORCERY.

sorcerers_discoursesDISCOURSES ON HIGH SORCERY:
More Correspondence Between The Silver Elves
and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters

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

How Often Do Elves Do Magic?

May 19, 2018
ZRubbingBelly
“. . . most of what the majority of folks would call or think of as magic,
the actual doing of rituals or casting of spells and so on,
we do on an impromptu and ad hoc basis. We perform
magic constantly in our daily life and when it needs to be done.”

2_3_7tinystar

How often do elves do magic? It depends upon the elves. In many ways, our magic is not done, so much as lived. We are magic, as the Elf Queen’s Daughters wrote years ago in their Elf Magic Mail. We exude magic. Enchantment and mystery radiate from us. And most of what the majority of folks would call or think of as magic, the actual doing of rituals or casting of spells and so on, we do on an impromptu and ad hoc basis. We perform magic constantly in our daily life and when it needs to be done. We send elementals off in this direction or that on this or that assignment.

Unlike most magical groups, we Silver Elves don’t have specific rituals for celebrating the Soltices and Equinoxes and so on. But, that is just us. Tië eldaliéva, the Elven Spiritual Path, as they call thems’elves, have taken Tolkien’s works on elves and created a ritual system pretty much attuned to what pagans are generally doing. We, on the other hand, just see what happens on a particular day and do what we feel is relevant. Of course, we know that there are some elves who hunger for more structure and as we say they can find it here or there, or really there but not here, or create it thems’elves, but they will be disappointed if they are looking to these elves for structure.

Our example is one of improvisation. This is why these elves in our The Book of Elven Magic, volume 1 and also volume 2, created rituals for those who were interested in ceremonies, including magic ceremonies for all the colors of the rainbow, as well as golden and silver magic ceremonies. So you can find within these two books magical ceremonies for purity, protection, healing, prosperity, creativity, opportunity, love, wisdom, harmony, as well as our inner magical secrets and the precepts of illuminated elven magicians. And while we give you these ceremonies and ritual guides, we emphasize that you should take them and make them your own, adapting them as wanted or needed. Unless, of course, you are very organizationally minded, which we are not, and then you could organize something and if we were around and the time seemed right to us we’d be glad to assist and attend with bells on our toes and smiles on our faces. We are not against people having organized magical rituals, we just aren’t inclined to organize it, and we certainly don’t intend to plan it, but if it happens that’s fine with us and we are always happy to add to it with our magical energy and Elven Blessings.

That doesn’t mean that we don’t have any magical rituals. We have been doing the I Ching everyday for the past 40+ years. So, we guess you could call that a ritual. We burn a bit of fire on our djinn’s lamp each day, feeding him for when he is needed magically. And Zardoa has a series of exercises and magical rituals, involving Reiki, Qigong and Elven Magic that he does every morning and evening sending out blessings to our kindred everywhere, and he has done so for awhile and will continue for however long. Until he stops, we guess. Occasionally, the whole process changes or mutates. Sometimes Zardoa adds something. Sometimes he alters what he is doing. The magic is ever transforming.

Silver Flame has her own magic rituals, as well, as she often uses Tarot cards or creates spells to help those we love and adore. She also has a practice she has been doing for years of doing magic in public places, sending out magical light from her eyes for Elven Blessings to those she feels need blessings, which is about everyone. We could do magic together on a daily basis, but that would require a bit of organization and that’s just unlikely to happen. In that way, we are typical elves of the Aquarian Age, each doing our own thing together. It is not that we never do magic in concert, for of course we do; and when we do it, it is both powerful and focused on the greater good of Elven Kind. As far as we are concerned, being together, and particularly being happy together, is our greatest magic, our great enchantment. And there are times when something comes up and needs to be dealt with and we put together this or that spell, or send off a spirit or two of the over five hundred that live with us to deal with it. But mostly we just leave them to enjoy thems’elves. No need for busy work here.

For the most part, we just are—we are elves together and that is an incredible magic and what else needs to be done really, except the dishes, which is really what ritual magic is about as far as we are concerned—doing dishes, which we do when they need to be done. Or sometimes, a little later, after they have piled up and there’s no room for cooking, which is another of our near daily rituals.

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

Can We Become Elves?

April 14, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Say The Silver Elves About the Difference Between Seelie and Unseelie Fae?

January 17, 2018
YingYangSilverElves
“…the primary difference between the Seelie and Unseelie….is not
that one is good and the other evil but is a difference
in our approach to mankind and the normal folk.”

The terms Seelie and Unseelie come from the Scottish Faerie Traditions, but the idea that there are elves of light or light elves and elves of dark nature can be found in other traditions as well. It really isn’t much different in essence from the whole idea that permeates society of a conflict between good and evil, the light and the dark, although in reality the manifestation of the Seelie and Unseelie and the difference between us is more nuanced and varied than that.

Take, for instance, the whole idea of the Tao and the interplay of opposing forces that creates Life and the Universe, as popularly represented by the Yin-Yang symbol of two swirling energies each with a touch of the other at its center. There are many folk who commonly mistake this symbol for a conflict between good and evil and say that we can’t have one without the other. But this is an inaccurate interpretation. The two primary forces of the Tao are not good and evil but action and assistance or reception to action, or the idea and its fulfillment in reality. Evil or disease results from a failure of the two primary forces to cooperate and assist each other. The two primary forces are like a marriage. If the partners live in harmony, all is well, if not great conflict and suffering ensues. The two primary forces of the Tao are both positive in expression when in harmony with each other.

So it is that some folks might see those in the Seelie Court as being the force for light in the world and those of the Unseelie Court as being the force for evil, and while there is some truth to this, it is only a partial truth. We would like to say that we Seelie Elves are good people but surely we are not perfect beings and we have also done things in the past that we regret. We strive to be better spiritual beings but alas we are not always successful. Yet still we strive onward. It is our experience that the Unseelie also endeavor to better themselves as people. Their idea of what makes for a better person may differ from our own however. And because the Unseelie are, in part, composed of orcs, goblins, dark faeries and dark elves (although not all dark elfae are necessarily Unseelie) and so forth, it would be easy to fall into the notion that they are the evil side of Faerie, they are usually surely the scarier side of faerie in an outward fashion, although we Seelie have our scary aspect as well.

But really the primary difference between the Seelie and Unseelie, as we have written elsewhere in our books, is not that one is good and the other evil but is a difference in our approach to mankind and the normal folk. The Unseelie are often hostile to mankind, wish to take revenge upon them for the ill that has been done to our folk, which we quite understand, and in general they don’t mind taking advantage, conning and deceiving man and his kind, since from their point of view he deserves whatever he gets for all the ill he has and continues to do in the world. And this includes his down right rudeness in denying the existence of the Fae at all.

We Seelie folk surely have sympathy for this point of view for we have been brutalized, marginalize and mistreated by man for aeons as well but we have come to the conclusion that cursing man and making him even worse than he is does him or us little good. Our position has ever been to help enlighten and uplift man in hopes that his kind will transform and become less hostile in general to everything and everyone that is different from them, including other men.

That, besides all the trivial differences between the Seelie and Unseelie, is the primary difference between us. So let us all, dear kindred of the Light and Dark, be in harmony and balance together on the elven path and live with the awareness of both the need for the active and receptive principles to be in balance within each of us.

Where do you stand on this issue?

Do Elves Interact with Genii Loci?

October 27, 2017
Z_MagicTreeBlog
“…these elves are ever aware that we live in relationship to and in association with the spirit of the place where we currently abide and which forms the living body of our realm of Elfin that we call Eldafaryn.”

The Ancient Romans believed in and interacted with Genii Loci (plural), or Genius Loci (singular), the abiding and protective spirit of a place. This belief, however, was not exclusive to the Romans and was a widespread understanding that still exists today in the form of the idea of “haunted houses” and restaurants or other places having a particular ambience or spirit.

Elves and fae folk in general have long been associated with various wild places and in particular seen as protective spirits of certain forests, streams and springs. This is not entirely different from the idea that faeries are often protectors or caretakers of flowers or other growing things. And that we fae folk could with a wave of our hand either bless or blight livestock or crops. This idea was extended, as elves and fair folk in general were increasingly seen as elements of fantasy, to witches and their ability to bless or ruin crops. And during the inquisition, one of the many accusations about a particular woman accused of witchcraft was that her neighbor’s crops failed or their cattle fell ill.

For our own part, these elves relate to the various spirits of whatever place we may be. We typically greet the trees each day as we see them, often bidding hello to the Faerie realms through them, saying, “Good morning, Faerie,” or well, not morning, we are seldom up for morning, but surely, “Good afternoon, Faerie,” or “Good Evening.” We also greet the birds and the other creatures we may encounter. When we used to live out in Makaha (often referred to here on O’ahu as the Wild West) in a valley between two mountains, we’d greet the mountains each day. However, these were old mountains, formed from volcanic ash, and every six months to a year someone would go climbing on them and fall to hir death, thus voluntarily offering their lifeblood to these ancient spirits.

There might be a tendency for many people to picture the spirit of a mountain as being separate from the mountain, and in the sense that we are spirits that live in humanoid elven bodies but are not those bodies, this is true for those spirits as well. At the same time, the mountain is the spirit in the same sense that our bodies are a vibrational manifestation of our spirits and while we might be separated from each other, and surely will in time, while we inhabit these bodies we are one. (See our book Eldafaryn: True Tales of Magic from the Lives of the Silver Elves.)

Thus these elves are ever aware that we live in relationship to and in association with the spirit of the place where we currently abide and which forms the living body of our realm of Elfin that we call Eldafaryn. We also, when we go traveling, carry stones that we’ve painted sigils upon and instilled with magic to leave as gifts for the genii loci of the various realms we are passing through. It is, after all, from an elven point of view only courteous to bring gifts when visiting others. Hoping in this way to gain the friendship and blessing of the spirits of those realms.

We are, of course, animists seeing the life in all things, just as the physicist understands that everything is composted of atoms and energy, we understand that everything is indeed alive with its own vibration, nature, experience and inclinations. As elves, we ever seek to be on friendly terms as much as possible with everyone.

Eldafaryn: True Tales of Magic from the Lives of the Silver Elves

The book begins with the latest relocation of our Eald (magical home/realm) and the energizing thereof, and proceeds to reflections from former Ealds and magical events and people in our lives in the past and present. We hope you enjoy it.
