What Will Elves Be Like in the Future?

December 1, 2018

“These will be more feeling orient, psychic beings with telekinetic, telepathic and other abilities and these abilities which now exist in most elves in a very latent form expressing itself in small ways will flower in the future. So while humanity in general will become more psychic, so shall the elves grow far beyond our present abilities.”

What will elves be like in the future? Who knows? That’s one of the marvelous things about elves and elfin, we are ever changing and evolving. Our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (see our series Books of Correspondence Between The Silver Elves and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters, four volumes), a sisterhood we were part of back in the mid 1970’s, used to say that it was important for elves to be as adaptable as possible while letting go of most of one’s preferences and aversions. One of our sisters used to say that the difference between those who were truly elven and those who were attracted to us but just couldn’t make the leap to joining us and being a part of our culture was the ability to change.

     And surely whatever we might say about elves in the future would only be a projection on our part, based mostly upon our own experience, and the reality would be rather different. And that is one of the things that is most wonderful about Elfin and being Elven is that Elfin is full of surprises. And while we elves are generally hard to surprise since we often have The Sight, we love wondrous surprises and Elfin surprises us regularly and people, particularly elfae folk, always surprise us.

     Yet there are certain consistencies to elfin being that will most likely remain the same. We are enchanters by our natures and we love magic and the magic of our essential being is likely to grow stronger and more potent. In fact, it is likely that we will become ever more of what people have always imagined us to be. We will be changing but mostly by becoming more of our own true s’elves.

     We can assume that all of humanity (mankind and elfae alike) will be motivated to continue to develop preferred traits, i.e., those traits that are based on instinctual drives of attaining happiness and longevity. Since beauty is a preferred trait in human beings and is nearly always projected as an aspect of elven being, it is likely that we will become ever more handsome and beautiful as a elven people. Peter Jackson said that casting actors to play elves in the Lord of the Rings movies was basically about finding fashion models.

     Since, longevity is a preferred trait, and since near immortality is also something that elves are almost always accorded in legend and lore, it is likely we will become healthier and more resilient, less prone to disease and longer lived altogether. Besides we tend to be happy people and happiness is a key to longevity. We delight in life, find purpose in life and are most often life artists. Our art is life.

     Since intelligence is a preferred trait, although you wouldn’t always know it by observing Mankind overall, we will surely be ever more intelligent as an elven people. We, after all, are ever seeking to learn and increase our knowledge as well as our ability to accurately think about the facts we encounter.

     According to elven esoteric lore, we elves of the current era are proto-types of the sixth sub race of the fifth root race of humanity, which in itself will be a proto-type of the coming sixth root race of humanity overall. These will be more feeling orient, psychic beings with telekinetic, telepathic and other powers and these powers which now exist in most elves in a very latent form expressing itself in small ways will flower in the future. So while humanity in general will become more psychic, so shall the elves grow far beyond our present abilities. The Sight will become telescopic vision and we elves will sense nearly everything that is to come while retaining our basic delight in all that is wonderous in the world, the Universe and Nature.

     Despite the fact that we elves are, and are most often seen as, a mystically magical people, we are very scientifically oriented and most likely will increasingly continue to be so. To us, science is just another form of wizardry. Sorcery is Psychology. Astronomy is a branch of Astrology. Chemistry is a 101 class for Alchemy. Medicine is Herbalism and Shamanism. Every science you can name stems from magic (see Fraser The Golden Bough) and will eventually return to it to our elven way of thinking. We know that this is just semantics, but that’s the point of Grammarye, isn’t it? Weaving magic with words. It is just the elven way of perceiving the world. Others may wish to use other terminology for things, but we are elves and the whole world is magic to our eyes and our hearts.

     And that’s the point isn’t it? No matter what changes may occur in the world, in technology, in our own being, we will still be elves now and forever. Whether we live on the material plane or some other, we are soulful spirits evolving into greater and more vibrant being. We can only guess at the details of what we elves will be like in the future. As we can only guess at what fashions we might wear. But what is certain is that we are becoming ever more elven, which is to say more enchanting and that is what it has always been about. What will elves be like in the future? Marvelous, simply marvelous. Just as we are now only better.

Kyela,

What Kind of Elf or Otherkin Are You?
And What is Your Elfae or Otherkin Tribe?

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

Also, we hope you will come to our website and enjoy reading samples of all our 40+ books on magic and enchantment and the Elven Way at: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfbooks.html  We have many books  on being elves and the Elven Way to choose from, but for the best oracle to help guide you into your most enlightened future s’Elf, we suggest the I Ching:

The Elven Book of Changes: A Magical Interpretation of the I Ching is a magical interpretation of the I Ching or Book of Changes, and is for elves, magicians, otherkin, and magic wielders of all kinds. It is written without gender bias and serves both as an Oracle and as a book of instruction to help the magician find hir way through the maze of modern life, the mystical worlds of spirit, and the magical realms of Faerie.

ichingcovedThe Elven Book of Changes: A Magical Interpretation of the I Ching

If you want to hear the voice of the ancestors and get true guidance and sagely advice from them, the I Ching is a good way to go about it. The Elven Book Of Changes is a version of the I Ching that merely removes the patriarchal cultural bias and language that is in so many versions, as well as interpreting it from an Elven point of view, which also means with a magical outlook. We welcome you to come here to our website to read more about The Elven Book of Changes and to read the introduction and beginning of the Hexagram 1: Magic.

Bright Doth Burn the Candle Light. . . . . .

Bright doth burn the candle light
That flickers through the trees
When darkened night obscures the way
Its glow still summons me
I ever keep it in my sight
As weary I do strive
To find my way to Elven Home
Where true magic comes alive

And filtered now I hear a song
Of voices raised in cheer
And gladdened notes of happiness
To greet my eager ear
And stumbling onward
Toward the sound
Of laughter and of love
That through the leaves
Does call to me
From branches up above.
And peering round
My eyes do search
Until they hap to see
A staircase spiral wrapping round
An oak that’s near to me
With pounding heart
I toward these steps
In haste do lurch and dive
Till climbing up
Hands pull me forth
As I at last arrive.

And I am grasped
And deep embraced
And nectar offered me
But none so sweet
As the smiles I spy
At home high in this tree.
—The Silver Elves, from An Elven Game of Rhymes : Book Two of the Magical Poems of Zardoa Silverstar.

How Do I Find Out About my Elfae/Otherkin Tribe?

November 1, 2018
elventribe_blog
“. . . . in the long run the ultimate connection will be the feeling you have for each other — the sense of simpatico, the realization of kinship and kindreth. But there are other things that you can use to discover more about them.”

First, it always helps if you start with examining yours’elf. You are a member of that tribe so they are like you. So, begin by looking at yours’elf, particularly examine what you feel about yours’elf, what you imagine about yours’elf, for much of our elfin faerie natures are buried in our subconscious, in the Collective Unconscious that is shared by all our kindred, and which we inherited from the ancestors, and which can often be best accessed by trusting our own intuition about ours’elves.

If you like or are drawn to this or that, then, it is very likely that so will your people. It is not that you are all exactly the same, surely. For elfae sorts are eccentrics by our very natures, but still tribes of elves and packs of pixies, and flocks of faeries wearing frocks, and conspiracies of unseelie, surely have much in common with each other. Of course, it is true that you are unlikely to recognize your people merely by their appearance. Although, that can be an aid. You can see a particular folk wearing this and that style and think, hey, I love that style, and know by doing so that you are related to them somehow. Yet, in the long run the ultimate connection will be the feeling you have for each other — the sense of simpatico, the realization of kinship and kindreth. But there are other things that you can use to discover more about them.

You may very well ask: What is your magic? For it is likely you have some magic in common. In fact, magic is something nearly all elves and elfae have in common, although the particular types and forms of magic may vary from tribe to clan. We are nearly all of us enchanters of some sort, but some of us practice healing magic, while others emphasize sorcery, shamanism, druidism, witchcraft, wizardry, ceremonial magic, necromancy or necromagery or any one or number of numerous other magic technologies. In that way, we are somewhat like doctors and other professionals. Some doctors are general practitioners, others are pediatricians, optometrists, surgeons and so on. And even then, there is subdivision. Some are brain surgeons, some heart surgeons. While all doctors tend to get the general medical education, most tend to specialize in time. So do we, as elfae, tend to specialize in the types of magic we do. Which doesn’t mean there aren’t general practitioners out there, or individuals with several specialties, but merely that magic is so vast one can be a jack-of-all-trades, as the saying goes, or a true master of a few. Knowing our magic tells of something of our people.

You may also ask about your preferred element (water, fire, air, earth, spirit, metal. etc.) or where would you prefer to live, etc. Most elfae have fairly definite feelings about the environment they prefer to live in. Some are wood elves, some are mountain elves, river or ocean elves and so forth. In many ways, that will get you close to your tribe. If you would find them, certainly knowing where they might be or wish to reside can prove to be a great help. Likewise, you can examine your preferences for your favorite tree or flower, gems and crystals, or totem animals. It is also very helpful to imagine what fictional elf or fairy folk you might be most like. These preferences of your own are also all hints as to what others in your elfae or otherkin tribe might be drawn to and are part of the fabric of your magical narrative.

It can take years to find our people. Seeking here and there in the world, on the internet, ever hoping to encounter those with whom one will truly feel attuned. So use your magic. If you have not found your kin as yet, then it may help to create something you like, perhaps a bit of elfae art or music, and share it as widely as possible. If you like it then others of your tribe will most likely feel attuned to it as well and be drawn to it and you. By doing so you are using the essential skill of all elfae to use enchantment magic to find your kindred. Remember, they are as attracted to you as you are to them. And every moment that you spend searching for them, they are looking for you as well.

And If I feel that I’m some sort of Otherkin but don’t know what kind, what should I do?

First, you should trust your instincts, intuitions, imagination and really, in this instance, your desires. We Silver Elves have been asked from time to time by various folks what sort of elf or faerie or other they might be and we have, as much as possible, resisted telling them what they are, because what they truly are depends almost entirely upon their own wishes. We have opinions, of course. But for the most part, unless someone really urges us to share our impressions and observations with them, we keep them among ours’elves. And no matter what our opinions may be, it is still up to the individual to decide and declare through action what they truly are. It is not our business to tell you who you are but your right to tell us who you are.

There was even an occasion a decade or so ago when someone wrote a post on the internet claiming we had said they were this or that (we don’t remember what), which was utterly untrue because, for the most part, we don’t tell people what sort of other they are. We just don’t. However, if someone is totally lost and wants our opinion, we may offer it as a suggestion that they may proceed upon until they discover within their own s’elves what sort of elfae they may be. Their own reaction to what we tell them, whether they embrace the suggestion or not, in itself will tell them a bit about thems’elves.

Although, here we rather come to the crux of the matter. The question involves the fact that the person doesn’t know what sort of elfae they are. But the reality of Elfin and Faerie isn’t a matter of what you are but what you wish to be. And if you support that wish with action, which is to say the magic of living, or manifestation, of making it real in your life and in the world, that is what you are and what you will be. We are not simply the products of Faerie and Elfin, we are its co-creators.

Most folks think in terms of their ancestors. They are elven or faerie or whatever in their minds because they were born that way, which is to say created that way by some outside force, god or power. But we are elfae folk, we are others, we are magicians, enchanters and spell weavers and we are whatever we wish to be. We are not what others have made us, but what we make of ours’elves.

Now, this is not to say that others don’t have influence in our lives. This is surely true of our earliest beginnings. So, if you are asking not what you are but what you were, that is a different question. A question really that has to do with previous lifetimes. But in elven philosophy, you don’t have to remain ever the same, as some authors have mistakenly written about us that we are eternal but never changing. What doesn’t change isn’t eternal. Change and transformation are part and parcel of the eternal. In a certain sense, all elfae are shapeshifters, not only changing our bodies from lifetime to lifetime and surely aging, usually gracefully, within a lifetime, but changing our minds, our attitudes and our sense of being, which we ever strive to improve, uplift and make better. We attune ours’elves to Nature within and without so that all that we do is natural and thus easy.

So, the question here isn’t really what sort of elfae am I but what sort of elfae do I wish to be. What sort of spirit do I wish to manifest in the world. Although, the answer is generally found in our own inner being. Who do you wish to be? What sort of elfae or other sings to your heart and soul? What kind of elfae arouses your imagination? This is Faerie. This is Elfin. You can be whomever you wish to be. But you must enliven this wish with magic if you wish it to be true. If you wish it to be real, you must make it real by living it. So, who are you? What sort of elfae? Only you know for sure and only you can realize it, which is to say only you can make it real for yours’elf and therefore for others.

And, if you haven’t already, or if you’d like to do so again, take our elfae/otherkin type quiz on our Silver Elves website (http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html) and we will do our best to assist you in creating a magical narrative that will help you understand your elfae/otherkin type and tribe, a gift from us to you. For surely in understanding yours’elf and your others, you will grow closer still in the nether realms and drawn ever nearer in the world.

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)

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. To view an excerpt of this book and find out more about it, click here to come to our website where we feature this oracle.

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.”

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.

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.

Is it the Elf Star or the Faerie Star? And Who First Adopted the Seven-Pointed Star as the Elf Star?

November 1, 2017
greenstarbluegrayweb
“Since the five-pointed star represented Mankind…, Arwen Eveningstar [of the EQD]
added wings to that figure (so one ray for the head, two for the arms,
two for the legs, and two for the wings) and thus came up
with a seven-pointed star to represent the elves and
the evolution of mankind into the Angelic Realms.
Obviously, due to the wings, it represents our faerie kindred as well.”

Really, it is both. We call the seven-pointed acute-angled star the “Elven Star” because it was our sisters Arwen and Elanor, founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters, EQD, (of which Zardoa of the Silver Elves was a member in their Carbondale, Il., vortex/coven, the Elves of the Southern Woodlands) who in the 70s were the first to adopt this star to represent the elves and started using it in the letters they wrote and circulated to elfin folk (see our Silver Elves books Elf Magic Mail, volumes 1 & 2, in which we have reproduced the original contents of those letters and described the graphics that adorned them and have also added our commentary upon the letters and the sisterhood.)

Our sisters Arwen and Elanor first conceived (in this lifetime) of using this star for the elven and put them upon the EQD letters on numerous occasions. Since the five-pointed star represented Mankind (inspired in Arwen’s mind by Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man), Arwen Eveningstar added wings to that figure (so one ray for the head, two for the arms, two for the legs, and two for the wings) and thus came up with a seven-pointed star to represent the Elves and the evolution of humankind into the Angelic Realms. Obviously, due to the wings, it represents our faerie kindred as well. In fact, the very first letter of the Elf Magic Mail shared by the EQD that had this symbol showed a five-pointed star with wings called “The Winged Star.” Thus from the very beginning the idea existed beneath the surface that this was also the Faerie Star. So it represents all Fae folk, elves, pixies, faeries, brownies and others and all are welcome to use it.

Z_Silver_celebrate

We have, for our own part, worn the elven star as an amulet for over forty years. We have at least a half dozen variations of it. From a very small elf star less than an half inch from side to side that we have upon one of our magical elven wands that we created, to a necklace piece that was made for us individually that is about three and a half inches in diameter. We even have one, about two inches across that comes from Jerusalem. We also have one that our sister Loriel gave us as a birthday gift that is a seven-pointed flower. And Arwen, Elanor, Loriel had a house south of Half Moon Bay that had a huge seven-pointed elf star, about six or seven feet in diameter, that was painted on the side of their home. We lived with them for over a month in the late 1970’s at this somewhat Rivendell like abode.

We Silver Elves carried on the tradition that the EQD created, putting the Elven Star on our own The Magical Elven Love Letters (see volumes one, two and three) throughout the 80s and 90s that we sent out to our elven and otherkin kin and over the years it apparently caught on. It would be nice, to our minds, if our kindred knew where it came from as it is part of modern elven and faerie history, but in the long run, it doesn’t really matter.

What does matter is that this star speaks to the heart of the elfae (the elven and faerie folk) and it is this reason that it has been taken up and carried on and used again and again to represent us. And surely, this would not have happened if in fact the elven/faerie star didn’t have something ancient to it. It sings to our hearts and imaginations because it truly connects us to our ancient kindred and it resonates in our Collective Unconscious. Otherwise it would have gone the way of so many things that have been put out there but passed by and forgotten. It calls to us. It reminds us of who we truly are and that is what truly matters. For it is the Elven-Faerie Star and we are all the kindred that it shines upon.

And wear your Elf star with many Elven Blessings!

Photo above of the first drawn Elven 7 pointed star (bottom right corner): “Winged Star,” by the Elf Queen’s Daughters that appeared on one of their letters circulated in the 70s to their many vortexes/covens (as well as putting the 7 pointed star on many other of their Elf Magic Mail letters). Read both The Silver Elves commentary about the first appearance of this star as well as the explanation of the meaning of the Elven Star that was published and circulated through Elf Magic Mail in the 1970s to the EQD vortexes/covens.
Here is the text to the first paragraph of the above letter:

“THE ELVEN STAR IS WINGED, FAIR KINDRETH …. it is a true expansion, relatively and ideally, of the pentacle or five pointed star. Of course all geometric figures have both literal and occult significance; yet, for the elves, the seven-pointed elven star contains foci that are quite unique to the elves as well as universal focus points that are applicable to the ten thousand modes of manifestation. Our winged-star focuses the elves upon 7 planes of being (physical, astral-sensual, mental, buddhic, atmic, para-nirvanic, nirvanic), which it activates 7 chakric and/or sensory centers (vision, homing, auric, auditory, touch, taste, smell). Men and wimin are not functionally interested in the “6th and 7th senses”, because of various cultural and evolutionary pathways that have become paramount in their present social pre-occupations. For the elven-kindreth the auric-proprioceptor and the homing senses are of equal value and/or significance relative to the “other” five senses. Tis our ancient peoples that now begin to evolve together, rather than separate. Seven senses, Seven Chakras, Seven Stars, Seven planes of being are our destiny and fate!” Click here and then scroll down to read the full letter and commentary

What sort of elf, faerie or other are you?
For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. Now we’ve created a questionnaire to help us do so. This is our gift to you. Simply follow the link & the directions. http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html 

Also we hope you enjoy the following meditation on the 7 pointed acute elven star, the elven-faerie star, that we Silver Elves created and published in Circle Network News in the 80s. You may find other versions that people have slightly adapted from this one to fit their own cosmology, but this is the original one and was created and first performed as a seven day meditation birthday gift for Zardoa Silverstar by Silver Flame, from elven heart to elven heart, opening the Gateway to Faerie. To be clear, while we love our original one here, we also find the adaption meditations and ray point meanings that others have done through the years to be quite magical as well, and the faeries particularly have made some adaptations to this meditation that are quite creative and beautiful indeed.

7pointedelfstar_silverelves

The original meditation on the Rays of the Seven Pointed Star by The Silver Elves in Circle Network News, Summer Edition 1986. [We have also added some of the side notes that were published with it.]:

Point 1: Meditate on the Sun, the Will to bring Peace and Prosperity in Elfland. [Love & Justice.]

Point 2: Meditate upon the Spirits of the Trees. Loving Friendship and unconditional love/healing light. [A Rainbow Dragon to burn through the obstacles is also associated with this point]

Point 3: Meditate upon our Regenerative Powers and Creative Energy. Spirit of Water [cleanses, bringing with it an Awakening of your True Nature].

Point 4: Meditate upon the Gift of Magic and Elven Blessings.
“Love is Magic, Magic is Love.”

Point 5: Meditate upon the Gateway, Prosperity and Peace for the Passage into Faerie [Elfland]. Prosperity.

Point 6: Meditate upon Justice in Faerie Realms, Healing [of the Elfae]. Wind Spirits, [recognizes thee essence of your Elven self].[The baby rainbow dragon flies on the winds to awaken healers and bring justice].

Point 7: Meditate upon success in “Extending your Love and Magic to all Life; to [Gaia]Mother Earth.”

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

     Eldafaryn (Elf Haven) contains a series of vignettes from the lives of the Silver Elves starting in the present and going back and forth through time describing their lives, their magic, their philosophy and their unique view of the world. If you’ve ever wanted to see Elfland from the inside, as the elves view and live it, here’s your chance.
These are true stories of elfin magic from the lives of the Silver Elves. They are as complete as our memories and confidences allow. There are things we cannot tell you, some secrets we cannot reveal, but what we do tell you is true. 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.

We also invite you to read about and read sample chapters of our other 41 books on elfin magic and enchantment and the Elven Way. You may also read what other readers have said about our books on each individual book page.

What is the Difference Between Elves and Witches?

October 7, 2017
Rocks_MagicTableColorBlog
“….while elves can be witches, not all elves are witches
and surely not all witches are elves.”

We Silver Elves and our sisters of the Elf Queen’s Daughters of old always felt very close to witches and in fact the Elf Queen’s Daughters declared on a number of occasions that they were elven witches and this was surely true. They felt a close association with the witchcraft movement of that time (mid 1970s) and were very close with Oberon Zell Ravenheart and Morning Glory of the Church of All Worlds. They were also friends with Alison Harlow of the Covenant of the Goddess, Zee Budapest of the Dianic Movement and other prominent witches of that period. In fact, all of the above were featured on various of the letters of the Elf Magic Mail, which the EQD sent out each week, three letters (the amount you could send for one postage stamp) for over a year.

We Silver Elves also knew all of the above individuals, although we only ever meet Zee Budapest in passing. On the other hand we had spent times in several of the homes of Oberon and Morning Glory and Alison Harlow and in fact our friend Valerie Voight wrote a wonderful letter of recommendation for us to join the Covenant of the Goddess but as it turned out we didn’t pursue that, our path leading us elsewhere.

But while elves generally feel a kinship with witches, we also feel a link to nearly all magical practitioners. There are elven wizards, conjurors, mages, curanderos (magical healers), sorcerers, shamans, diviners and magicians. But, of course, we are particularly enchanters (see our book The Keys to Elven Enchantment) for enchantment is the main and primary magic of the elven and always has been both in lore and tradition and in reality.

In later years (we’ve know them for over forty years), the founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters and the inner sisterhood tended toward Sorcery in their magic interest and practice but we Silver Elves still pursue enchantment as our primary magic. But the choice of what magic to do, as with nearly everything else concerning elves, is up to the individual elf and hir own spirit and soul. If the elf lets hir natural attractions guide hir, she is bound to find in time the magic that is perfect for hir.

So while elves can be witches, not all elves are witches and surely not all witches are elves. We did meet a woman one time who came to us for guidance and lessons on the magical path, who claimed that she was of witchbreed, that is to say born to be a witch. But even if that is so, and we don’t doubt her, it is still a matter of choice. She pursued witchcraft because she loved and was attracted to it and choose to do so. Of course, one could argue that she was born to love witchcraft, that it is in her blood but still the choice of acting upon it is hers. Without that choice, without that decision to act, there is no true magic. If we are compelled to do magic and have no choice in the matter then we are not magicians but puppets to someone else’s magic. Choose wisely, beloved.

Lyndarys
The Elves of Lyndarys: A Magical Tale of Modern Faerie Folk

     THE ELVES OF LYNDARYS by The Silver Elves is an often humorous novel about a young man’s struggle to mature and develop himself, his magic and his identity as he encounters and explores the modern pagan and otherkin communities and happens to encounter real elves, slowly coming to realize as he does so that he may not be a man at all but one of the elven. He is confronted through his journey not only by his own incredulity about his encounters and his inner conflict with what he has been taught to believe is reality and his actual experience but also by his personal prejudices and false assumptions. He comes to discover not only that the magic of Faerie is real but further that the Elven Way, as presented by his mentors, offers him a means of traveling the misty paths to magical and mystical enlightenment.
You may read more about this elven fantasy novel here, including some reviews and an excerpt. As one 5 star reviewer said:
“I will be recommending this book to my faerie/elven friends. We are always looking for stories that resonate with our own brand of reality and this book does that extremely well. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a modern day story of finding Elfland and all the magic and freedom that a place like this can have. Fans of The Lord of the Rings may also like this as it treats Tolkien’s Middle Earth as a real place and mentions its characters often.”

 

In Elfin Stay . . . . . .

In a darkened twilight world
The voice of spirit ancient hears
A laugh, a whisper, and a jest
That calls you to the final test.
Come within, it seems to say
Do not fear we’re here to play
And if you wish
We’ll show the way
And you at last
Can come and stay.

What is the Rainbow Magic that the Silver Elves Often Speak About?

October 1, 2017
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“Rainbow Magic is really the magic of the rainbow people,
which is to say all the Elfae (elven faerie folk) and
others that work together to create a better situation for all of us.”

 

(Photo of magical double rainbow taken
by The Silver Elves in Makaha, Hawaii, near their Eald.)

According to a Hopi Prophecy, the Rainbow People will come and save the peoples of the Earth. The Earth, itself, according to the elves, doesn’t need saving. It is humanity and the other creatures upon it that are truly in danger from man-unkinds’ and others’ predations. The Earth will do quite well without humanity. But we elves and fae folk would rather not have it that way. We’d much rather harmonize with Nature and find/create a place where all peoples, human and otherwise, may be successful.

Thus Rainbow Magic is really the magic of the Rainbow People, which is to say all the Elfae (elven faerie folk) and others that work together to create a better situation for all of us. A true elven civilization upon the Earth. A place where everyone is free to express hir own s’elf and hir own nature as long as they don’t interfere with others. This idea of the Rainbow People, the combined elven and fae folk along with all others, is essentially an Aquarian notion and befits the Aquarian Age that is still in the process of birthing. It is, as we’ve said elsewhere, the essential idea that we can all do our own thing together. It puts forth the notion that win-win situations are not only possible but preferable and that we are able not only agree to disagree but we can also agree to let each other, as much as possible, pursue our own interests and development. There is room in Elfin for all sincere and willing folk that chose to be there.

These may seem in some ways like new ideas (some folks might even fluff them off as New Age, a term that is held in scorn by numerous folks, although these elves have never been precisely clear about why they do so, nor has anyone been able to tell us) but like the Hopi Prophecy and the notion of the Aquarian Age, these are actually something that have been handed down to us from the Ancestors. They foresaw our coming and rejoiced in the fact that it was so, as we rejoice and take heart in those who are yet to come.

Another way to look at this, however, is in the Seven Rays of Manifestation, which are each accorded a color associated with the Rainbow. The three primary colors being the first three rays and the blending of those colors (the secondary colors) being the last three rays and the fourth, by its nature, being a place of synthesis. For our own part we see the fourth ray as being of the tonal scale, thus white to black with all the grays in between, and thus also silver. We elves particularly associate with this ray, although any individual elf may have another ray as hir dominant propensity.

But this brings us back to the Rainbow Magic and the fact that there is a blending occurring. Elves, while we tend to be, first and foremost, enchanters, are also wizards, witches, sorcerers, magicians, conjurors and healers, herbalists, shamans, and every other sort of magician that uses hir magic to manifest Elfin in a bright and positive way that is fulfilling and healing for all involved. This is the Rainbow Magic, uniting our powers to create something truly wondrous for everyone, a world of shining radiance where love rules, magic illuminates, and we dance together in joy forever in a world brilliant with color.

September 28, 2017th: The Silver Elves are happy to introduce our newest book release:
Creating Miracles In the Modern World: The Way Of the Elfin Thaumaturge

Creating_miraclesBookcover

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.
You may visit our website to read an excerpt from Chapter 3.

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