Is the Elven Way a Religion?

June 25, 2017

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

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

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

Could there be an elven cult?

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

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

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

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

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

June 3, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

Below is a sample page of Discourses on High Sorcery:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE ATTAINMENT OF ARHATSHIP IS MATCHLESS
love
Arwen

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

(Reply from the Silver Elves to letter #14)

As we’ve told you previously…
Dear Arwen,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Living in the World of the Unawakened

April 12, 2017

It often seems to the elven, and this is not without a good deal of justification, that one lives in a world surrounded by what are often called the unenlightened, the unawakened, the muggles (a la Harry Potter), the mundane or the normal folk (so called because that is how they like to think of themselves). But from an elven point of view, the whole world is full of magic and nearly everyone, with very few exceptions, are magicians of various sorts, although most don’t acknowledge that fact, or conceive things in that way.

This means that we are also surrounded by people who may call themselves men or woman but who are, in most cases, some variety of fae folk. They are orcs or goblins, grimlens, hobbits, pixies, brownies, faeries, elves and all manner of otherkin and hobs (halflings) of various kinds. Most, of course, don’t think of themselves in this way, which is in fact the point. They are unawakened to their true natures. But we elfin need not be. Even if they are unaware of who they are, we usually get some sense of their real being and may guide them, gently, toward that realization.

In doing so, we must be careful of not forcing our own opinions and aspirations upon them. Our task is to guide them to their own realization. It is not our place to slap them awake (as much as that may seem necessary or justified) but to awaken them gently with the song of Elfin.

You are welcome to join us on our Silver Elves website and also to read some sample writing from our 38 books on magic and enchantment and the elven way.

If you are dealing with the unenlightened or unawakened we highly suggest that you enjoy reading What An Elf Would Do.

Here is another question we are often asked: How do I find new elf friends?

Finding Elf Friends

Most elves, by our natures, are enchanters and surely enchantment is the most elven of the magical arts, which doesn’t mean that we don’t explore or study or use other of the Arts Magical but that enchantment is what we are historically most associated with and is the magic that is most in keeping with our own dispositions in the majority of cases.

We ever seek to be friends/elf friends with everyone we encounter, although, it is true that not everyone is open to this, and certainly most are not immediately open. In that sense, we are like the ocean slowly weaving down cliffs of their suspicion and reluctance or like ivy we grow on people.

Because of this and because of our elf sight, our ability (Verfaji see our book Arvyndase) not only to see magic that others do not see but also to see an indication of who is elvish and what their elvish nature may be, we relate to people based not only on who they are but who they are destined to be. We relate to their potential, ever seeking to nurture the best that is in them. Thus we make friends with all sorts of folks, although we, like most elven, wish there were more folks who were aware and awakened to the point that they could share this path with us with the same relish we do. Still, we find gnomes and faeries, pixies, leprechauns and all manner of other folk and even if they are not entirely aware of their own natures, we have some inner spiritual understanding of what they may become. We interact with them as they are without making any demands upon them to be otherwise while nurturing what they will in time surely become.

Awakening to One’s True Elven Nature

March 20, 2017

When elf and faerie folk first awaken to their true natures, they often attempt to define that nature in very limiting ways, often saying that there are only five types of elves or eight types of fae folk, or otherwise narrowly delineating elfin nature, such as proclaiming that elves don’t kiss or that no elves are gay or other such nonsense.

Naturally, elves and fae folk who are more advanced in their understanding of their s’elves reject such limiting declarations. However, we come to realize in time that these attempts to limit the nature of elves aren’t really a reflection of an outward expression but actually an inward one. These individuals in attempting to limit all elves are really seeking to define and discover their own elven nature. They are not really saying, even though they think they are, that no elves kiss but rather that they come from a tribe of non-kissing elves, or that no elves are gay, but that they thems’elves are not.

Once one realizes that all these outer projections are truly a expression of the individual, all becomes clear and one can smile and acknowledge their efforts to declare their own natures while avoiding any sense of being personally limited thereby. For it is the right of every elf to define hir (his/her) own nature and this right cannot be abnegated nor abridged by any other.

To explore your Elven Nature, we invite you to the Silver Elves Website Elves In Paradise.Welcome to the Eald of the Silver Elves in the Uttermost West. Here you may enter our Elven Tree of Life Eternal and explore you magical nature and also look through sample writing of all our 37 books on magic, enchantment and the Elven Way, including The Elven Tree of Life Eternal: A Magical Quest for One’s True S’Elf.

Magic Talks: Being a Correspondence Between The Silver Elves and the Founders of The Elf Queen’s Daughters

July 25, 2016

Magic Talks is a collection of letters between the two sisters who are the founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters (in 1973), Arwen and Elanor, and the Silver Elves, Zardoa and Silver Flame. This is the first book in a series of Tulku internet correspondence beginning in November of 2011 and ending in February 2012. Arwen and Elanor are also the original publishers of the “Magic Elf Letters” sent out from the Elf Queen’s daughters. They published three letters a week for about three years. In the early 1979 the Silver Elves carried on these letters calling them “The Magical Elven Love Letters” and continued writing and publishing them for the next 30 years, although on a much more whimsical schedule.There are a number of letters in Magic Talks discussing how Arwen and Elanor first started using the acute seven-pointed star as a symbol of the Elven people, passed on by Zardoa Silverstar, which has been adopted by elven and faerie folk all over the globe, and is called both the Elven Star and the Faerie Star (see sample of letter #20 below). The letters contained in Magic Talks cover a wide range of topics from Tolkien to Sorcery, from Esoteric Buddhism and the Supra-dimensional to Elven Magic.

MagicTalks

Excerpt from Magic Talks:
Letters No. 1 . . . . In The Stardust of The

Akashic Record

MANY CULTURES HAVE ARISEN, NEFFIE AND ZARDOA . . . .

. . . . through out the passing ages. Tens of thousands of years come to a peak in a visionary now-ness, allowing for insight- hindsight. The sage can gaze forward and backwards, making hope possible for the people. We share our revelations and before you know it, another culture is born.

Sometimes we think: counter-culture or cultural evolution or even enculturation itself are all nothing but one vast concept. This kind of thinking defies true reason. However, it is the way

most people generally choose to think. Ancient teachers reveal to us a perspective of long lost and forgotten cultures. Some few were once superior to those that are presently known to us. Every culture has a birth, middle age of achievement and finally, its slow period of decrepitude and death.

Eventually conquered, cities were usually set to fire, with all the remaining inhabitants sold into slavery. A rare number of these archaic cultures remain in the AKASHA. Only our finest imaginings break through to attain a glimpse of the eternal record of everything that came before us, all that is ‘written in the “stardust” of the AKASHIC RECORD’ . . .

Love,
Arwen and Elanor [Founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters]

(Reply from the Silver Elves to letter #1 from Arwen and Elanor)

In the long ages of the Stars… beloved,

… civilizations vast have come and gone and their numbers are beyond imagining, How many more will follow this fate until you and we have passed beyond all such considerations into those realms that pay as much heed to these worlds as we involve ourselves in the lives of ant colonies are too many to even speculate; but all of us, like children born destined to grow old, tread the path of evolutionary development, each in our own time and way, as best we can for where we are at the moment, and as you have so wisely observed it is best if upon casting our gaze on others that we know however inadequate they may seem to us that they are also doing the best they can. Still, if it wasn’t for the promptings of our inner selves and our beloved kindred urging us to greater spirit and soulfulness as well as inspiring us with their own mighty spirits we surely would be less than we are, and these elves are ever thankful for the inspiration and nurturing we have received from our beloved kin.

Give our love to all there, Zardoa and Neffie [Silver Flame]

 

Letters No. 20 . . . . Origin of The Elven Seven- Pointed Star

THE SEVEN POINTED STAR, ZARDOA . . . .

. . . . goes way back. To say the least, it can always be found in various (from spikes at approximately 51 degrees to broadly spaced angular arrangements of the same) public police dept. stars, indicating civil authority. We were (cogently) drawn to the seven pointed star for more mystical reasons. Tibetan mysticism (very esoteric, if not absolutely cryptic), bases a great many treatises upon 7 rays and this proved extremely functional to our deeper studies.

Djwal Khul (an adept) was the primary source for a ‘TOLKU’ type transmission-vehicle used extensively by both Alice Bailey and Madam Blavatsky (1870 – 1950). He orchestrated the integration of Tibetan Esotericism with Western European-American- Occultism at the behest of his superiors (i.e., The Lodge Of Masters). Djwal Khul made use of a septette-arrangement consisting of 7 rays (i.e., assuming an unseen 8th or resolution of the octave) to great advantage (pedagogically speaking); hence, we envision a seven pointed star.

Of course, I loved the seven pointed star for several other outstanding reasons. These issues caught me up in a flash of intuition and perhaps, genuine ecstatic-rapture (of fairly reasonable proportions). I was only 28 – 35 years old and strangely given over to all such “magical” and/or “mystical”, swooning type of 1960’s antics but, I was also definitely impacted by “Lodge Of Masters” impressions, at that particular time. I really felt rather ‘captured’ by the guides that so kindly made themselves available to “little ole me”.

Discovering, to my own surprise, that the ‘angle of reflection’ of the Egyptian Pyramids was 51 degrees almost proved to be way

‘too much for me to handle’. I felt very akin (at that particular time, in the 70’s) to “The Brotherhood Of Luxor” and have continued a loose relationship with ‘The Nile River Adepts’ ever since then. A true pyramid could not function properly without those Egyptian “engineers” making use of the 51 degree (the seven pointed star configuration) coordinates for actual construction.

It is perfectly true that the seven pointed star is a bit difficult to construct but not if you have a simple protractor or a basic sense of geometry’s functions. Five points (5 pointed star) are said to represent the five senses, a man with arms, legs and a head; however, add two more points (for seven total) and the man indicates two wings to match his arms and legs with a head. An angelic evolution can be simultaneous envisioned with a human evolution, something all esotericists have been hinting at for 20,000 years.

That’s it, my Son. A great host perpetually hinting and whispering, successfully, to Paleolithic and eventually modern man; resulting in a set of primary symbols that can touch the soul as does poetry. 5 senses are cool but 7 lead to supra- dimensional awareness.

FREEDOM IS DEFINITELY FOR THE BIRDS

Love,
Arwen
P.S. what e’re a star can do to stimulate the higher mind’s got to be good for ya

(Reply from the Silver Elves to letter #20)

Thank you… Beloved Arwen,

… for the letter on the Seven-pointed Star. It was genuinely enlightening and we had not realized that the angle of the

pyramids was identical to that of the Elven Star. What a revelation.

About 15 or so years ago, Zardoa had a dream in which Princess Diana invited him to a huge mansion where she introduced him to Prince Charles who escorted him to the rooftop where a priest/wizard/druid was awaiting him. The druid told him to inscribe the inverted Elf Star in light in the air to channel the energy and power of Faerie into the material world and thus awaken it and the elves in this realm. Zardoa has been following this dream injunction periodically, when the time seems right, ever since.

As to our friend, mentor, and guide Djwal Khul we are indeed familiar with his works both through our studies with you in the Sorcery Group, our weekly studies with our old colleague “Pippin” that lasted over a decade, and our own studies earlier in our lives and incarnations when we had a long and intimate relationship with the Tibetan, at one point in a previous incarnation living with and under his tutelage from the esoteric and etheric realms of being. We, at some point, parted company with him under very friendly circumstances when we set forth to pursue and hopefully in time fulfill the mission offered to us and which we accepted. He remains in our hearts and fond memories. We still remember his rugged, lined but quite distinguished and handsome face which ever bore a quiet smile and eyes that gleamed with knowing and understanding. We remember the very day we parted company. We even apologized for leaving him, but he was silent, smiling at us as always and embracing us and patting our backs affectionately as we turned to go. Such ages ago, but it is still etched in our memories.

Then not long after that our elven kin found us wandering in the jungle that is the modern world and awakened us so our memories came flooding back and we remembered what it was

our hearts and souls had so eagerly and insistently been in search of.

Ancient Egypt, on the other hand, has never really called to us and we are certain that our paths tread elsewhere in the period. Of Babylon and Sumer do we sing, of ancient Akkadia and our Annunaki ancestors our thoughts go still, the Shining Ones, the Star Spirits, the hyper-dimensional beings that have fostered and nurtured us though space/time. But that we are cousins to the Egyptians, brother/sister of that Lodge of Initiates through the Greater Frasority that lives among the Stars, is very clear.

And now, after all this time, we are here on the very cusp of a New Age where humanity will rise or fall, either to yield to the new ones being born from them or resist unto death in an obstinate refusal to change. Either way, we will depart this life knowing we have done our best, and for those of us on this path, what more is there to say? Sometimes at night a faerie sits below and just a bit away from our window and sings in such a lovely voice, not to us specifically, but to the night and stars, and we think again of how very blessed we have been.

May starlight filter through your dreams and sing to you of Faerie.

Kyela,
Zardoa and Neffie

From the Major Powers:

Creation, The Magic

TAROT: MAGICIAN
SYMBOL: THE LINE
THE MAGICAL TOOL: WAND

This is the power of Creation and creativity. With this power one can create one’s own world, realm, eald, etc. Unlike the first power, which is essentially effortless and accepting, this second power strives to mold the world, or really a part of the world, by its own vision. There is a danger here that one may attempt to compel their vision upon others and force them to yield to one’s will. This, however, is a violation of the basic principles of elfin magic and a corruption of this power, which functions not through force and coercion, but by attraction and enthusiasm.

Fantasy writers who create worlds so vivid that hordes of fans hunger to enter into them give a good example of this power to us. Tolkien’s works stand as a testament to this power. This power is also true of those who founded religions, kingdoms, fashion and art styles, etc. However, if one proceeds as if their way is the only way, the one true and right way to be, then they have lost their way and are wandering toward the dark side.

The true power of creation stands as a unique and individual manifestation, among other unique and individual forms and beings. It is a star among a Universe of Stars. It is ever a pioneer, and if others follow the trail it has blazed, it does not care, for it has already moved on.
Create your own Eald, dear elfin, and invite your co-creators to join you in the weaving of a magic that makes a better world for all of us.

EVOCATION:

I summon forth the powers of Creation
I make my world anew by the power of my vision
Talents, skills, and powers come to me seeking expression
I send them forth to make the world more loving, kind, and beautiful
I send them forth to make life more exciting, adventurous, and fulfilling
I send them forth to express thems’elves perfectly
Great artists each in their chosen field.

INVOCATION:
I open myself to the powers of creativity
That I may express mys’elf truly in my own way
Creating wonders of magic and beauty in my own style
Filled with energy and power I set forth
Renewed, and revived, and ready to give to the world
The treasures that I bear within me.

ENCHANTMENT:
The powers of creation are mine
The world responds like clay
And in the course of time
We see the coming day
Awakens now renewed
Our efforts have been true
And the magic we have brewed
Will guide us on our way.

From the Minor Powers:

WATER: SUIT OF CUPS

Love—Minor

TAROT: ACE OF CUPS
THE SYMBOL: THE HEART
THE MAGICAL TOOL: CHARM BRACELET

This is the root power of all relationships, whether it be family, romantic, friendship, acquaintance, legal, business or any other. They all come under the influence of this power. Being under the element/state of water/liquidity, this power is very fluid in nature and extremely adaptable, yet it retains its essential nature in its largest and most microscopic forms. It is also very feeling oriented and its essence is based upon feeling rather than mental or even spiritual attraction. Thus it is linked to both intuition and instinct, but primarily to the feeling of attraction or repulsion that draws us to or inclines us to avoid certain individuals.

For any relationship you wish to develop, improve or from which you wish to depart, this power can be of help. It is also a supplementary power to all the other fluid powers. To invoke this power is to develop your own ability in creating successful relationships, enhancing the power of your personality, giving it weight and power.

The evocation of this power brings the personal touch and an inner sense of connectedness to even the most formal associations. If one feels they are faced with a mindless and callous bureaucracy, the conjuration of this energy will arouse a sense of sympathy and relatedness in those with whom one must interact, helping to bring the element of the human or humane/elven into an otherwise cold and uncaring association. It awakens the feeling in people, helps remind them that they are not robots, but feeling human beings/spirits, which it to say spiritual beings.

EVOCATION:
I treat all I meet with loving kindness
With gentle concern, with reassuring comfort
Each relationship bearing the potentiality for friendship
For romance, or for a delighted flirtation
Each an opportunity to spread love into the world
To make the world a better place
A more loving place
A place where love can prosper
In all its forms and variations.

INVOCATION:
I draw in the power of love
So I may see the potential for love in all situations and circumstances
So I may be able to love in all situations and circumstances
So love will fill my soul and exude from my body
As an aura of energy
Creating and atmosphere of love
Wherever I go.

ENCHANTMENT:
Love comes to me today
Love comes in every way
Love is the very source
Love is the way, the course
Love is the action that I take
Love is the way for its own sake
Love is the purpose
And the meaning, too
Love is the goal for all I do.

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

July 25, 2014

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

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

Myths about Elfin Magic:

Myth 1: Magic Requires Belief

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

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

Myth 2: Technical Exactness is Necessary

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

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

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

Myth 3: Magic Drains Your Life Force?

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

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

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

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

The Right to Pursue One’s Own Path

 

One of the first challenges a newly awakened Elfae (combining the words elf and fae/faerie and meant to indicate all kindred of Elven/Faerie kind) encounters is the individual’s right to decide for hir (combining the pronouns his and her, and used when the individual may be either male or female) own s’elf, hir direction, path and course. There are myriads of religious groups and cults all demanding that the elf follow their (the religious group’s) beliefs or doctrines, and certainly nearly every elf comes from a background of religious, scientific, and/or ethnic culture. It is often difficult therefore to assert one’s sense of s’elf when confronted by those persons and forces that one has been trained since birth to honor as authorities.

Whether one has been raised Christian, Jewish, Atheist, or Agnostic or some other faith, deciding to follow one’s own path, particularly when one is young and inexperienced, can often be difficult. And unless one has come to despise, for whatever reasons, the teachings of one’s childhood and family, one often wants to cling to the past while moving forward into the future. And for the elves this is not a problem. We are not concerned by those who wish to be elves and Christian, however, in our experience some Christian sects would make this balance difficult for their part. Like Voudoun, we elves have no problem incorporating the teachings and images of Christianity or Buddhism, Judaism, or even Islam into our understanding of our world. (Note that in Virginia there is found a stone in the form of a cross that is called the Fairy Cross that is said to link Jesus and the Fairy Folk.) The Universe is One, and all that is in it is related to Faerie either directly or indirectly in the view of those with the Faerie Sight.

Jews and Hebrews often have a different experience. Many hold their religion easily in their hearts, but most will never give up their culture. At the same time the links between the Judaic and Hebraic peoples and the ancient Scythian lords from whom many of the elven have descended genetically, and upon whom the legends of faerie are in part based, are strong and linked by ancient marriage (see Laurence Gardner’s Realms of the Ring Lords). So, again, on the elven side certainly, and probably on the Judaic and Hebrew side as well, there is very little friction between our peoples; and we elves certainly have always been very well treated and nurtured by our Judaic/Hebraic kin. Although, moving toward the full embrace and the living of the elven path can be a challenge for some who were raised in that culture. It often offers worldly connections and success that we elves, as yet, cannot offer them. Plus, while the Judaic-Hebrew culture is despised by some, and has been often persecuted in the world, they are none-the-less acknowledged by the world, even by those who despise them, while our Elven culture is seen by most as a foolish fantasy at best.

Those raised Atheist and Agnostic have a different challenge and this challenge curiously confronts many modern religious types as well. This is the idea that elves as an existent people and culture, is unscientific. They have been taught that we don’t exist, are utterly the product of fantasy and have a difficult time accepting the reality of our existence. They are called to make a leap of faith into the unknown and this can be very difficult for folk raised in this fashion. If the reality of faerie isn’t proven, they find it difficult to believe in. This challenge is reinforced by the social scorn they will have to endure if they do make that leap.

However, most Elfae are awakened by others of our kind, and while some may have a difficulty with relinquishing their former culture, and some may have difficulty believing in ideas that they have been told all their lives are mere imagination and fantasy, those who have heard the call inwardly, and who have encountered one or more of our living kindred, fully manifesting in the world, have a hard time denying the truth of their heart and experience.

Alas, here there are also powerful influences that confront the budding Elfae. There are the ancient legends and the modern tales concerning our kind, and many of these are simply erroneous and while inspiring the Elfae’s heart, tend to confuse hir mind with often foolish and irrelevant aspects that may have been good for creating conflict and interest or dynamic tension in a story, but are inadequate and obstructive when the Elfae confronts hir real life in the world.

At the same time, if the elf who awakens hir is very powerful, or part of a group of very potent elven witches, it can be difficult for the newly awakened not to come completely under the sway of these more experienced elves. However, while these may be more experienced elves, and their magic may be more potent and powerful, it does not always mean they are more spiritually evolved or without aspects of their own soul and personality that need development. Every elf needs to reserve in hir own heart and mind the right to think for hirs’elf, and base hir judgments on hir own sense of inner guidance and direction. While we Elfae are all traveling toward Elfin/Faerie, we are not all of us journeying on the same exact paths. There are many paths to Faerie and many realms in Elfin.

    It should be noted that it takes tremendous courage to stand against one’s heritage and upbringing, and in many ways even greater courage to assert one’s individual understanding of the path to those who awakened one. And we should remember, particularly at the beginning of this spiritual journey into the Realms of Elfin, not all Elfae are ready to venture on their own. Many need that guidance, and even if those who are providing it are not entirely evolved or perfected in their own elven souls, if they are not totally leading us astray like a bunch of errant pixies, their guidance may be of great help to us. Yet each Elfae should know that in the course of time, sHe (combining the pronouns she and he in instances where the individual may be either female or male) may hear the Call of Elfin drawing hir in another direction and if sHe is ready, should have no hesitation in pursuing it. Yet one is wise to keep in mind that in pursuing one’s own path into Elfin/Faerie that not everyone will be ready to follow that path, particularly if one is blazing new trails through the Mists, and it is unwise, as well as un-elven, to attempt to force anyone to do so. Each needs to be encouraged on hir own way, at the level she currently has achieved, and is currently comfortable pursuing.

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

Those who feel the Call and who have awakened are faced with another challenge, for they come to understand they are truly Special Beings; they are the Chosen, or actually those who have Chosen to pursue the Elven Way, and are in fact advanced souls and spirits relative to the mass of humanity at this point. They are truly elite beings, who have opened thems’elves and are dedicating thems’elves to developing their inner Soulfulness, and Spirit to become truly Cosmic Beings and to, in time, enter the Supra-Dimensional Realms where Faerie thrives in its fullness. The challenge here is how to know one is such a being without it enhancing the negative aspects of ego and leading thus to an increasing separation between the Elfae and those around hir who sHe is ultimately meant to help and guide. Thus each elf is called to remember that every being is a soulful being and each person contains the potential for greatness within hir, and is destined/designed to become hir own true s’elf in hir own time and way.

Although, the act of awakening and living one’s elven nature often leads to those around us rejecting us, the Elfae must ever be conscious of not rejecting them in turn. The more we advance in our elven nature, and on the Path of Elven, the more sacred will we consider the souls of those around us, even if they, as yet, are not aware that they even have such a soul. Being one of the Elite should not separate us from others in our hearts, but make us ever more aware of being One with them. This struggle, however, with our own ego is often a life long process and the challenge of loving and accepting those who reject us, while at the same time protecting ours’elves from them, is a magic that it often takes years, even lifetimes, to master. Fortunately, we live in Eternity and we have forever.

Of those who awaken, there tend to be two general types. First, and by far the greatest number, there are those who have heard the Call, but in fact have no idea of what to do about it. They sense that they are elven or other, but where to go from there, they know not. These tend to seek others who are already active and living their lives as elves, although it should be said that nearly all elves seek their kindred. We tend to be, for the most part, a very group oriented people. These are also the individuals who are most likely to cling to the religious and philosophical teachings of their past, and who often view Elfin from that perspective, that is to say they endeavor to merge their former religious ideas with their new sense of being Elven. There is nothing wrong with doing so, although this approach will only take one so far on one’s journey into Faerie. This group are also the ones most likely to need leaders, at least for a while. They hunger for guidance. They are open, but don’t know what to do with their openness, or whence to go. These are also those most likely to fall back into the world, fade from Elfin, or start pursuing a different, more popular fad. These, like many, perhaps most elves, hunger for love, connection and community and don’t really care if it is called Elven or whatever; they just want to be loved, get laid (a lot), and have friends. Yet, even those who fade often come back to us in time. If someone is truly Called by Elfin, sHe will eventually find hir way there.

The second group of individuals who awaken to the Call, tend to be more creatively active. They often give thems’elves elf names, write their own faery tales, gather others about them, or attempt to do so (it is often hard to draw elves to one, we are an independent lot), and begin creating their own elvish culture, magic, and the implements and accessories there of. They are often leaders, but in the sense of being pioneers rather than authorities, and thus they are also more comfortable being solitary elves, although, as we’ve said previously, few elves like being solitary. These are also the Elfae most likely to continue on this Path long after everyone else around them have faded from it, and these individuals are usually less attached to traditional philosophies and religious notions. They have found the old ways wanting, and seek the Way of the Ancient Future. (Note elves often speak of the ancient future evoking Ancient Ways that are as yet unfilled, and are the Vision of evolutionary development.) However, these need to be careful that they don’t merely substitute one dogma for another. The Paths to Elfin are many, and each has a right to find hir own way. Also, while the first type needs guidance and often fades if they don’t find a confident elven soul to help them, this second sort need appreciation for their works and creations and may wander off if they don’t get the recognition for which they hunger.

While we have written these as two distinct types for ease of understanding, and of which the second type tends to be more evolved in their elfin nature than the first. In reality, these types are often mixed, individuals having a bit of both aspects in them, having some need for guidance and yet expressing some creative outpouring in need of recognition. And while the second type tends, as we say, to be more advanced or developed in their elven nature, that does not necessarily mean they are perfected souls and have no challenges of fate or karma, nor a need for personal transformation. Even very Adept kindred have aspects of personality they are striving to develop. Although, again these more evolved ones tend to have a more independent approach to Elfin, and often seem like they are making it all up as they go along, which, for the most part, they are. Although, we could also say they are channeling Faerie, or remembering it, that is to say drawing down memories of Elfin from our Collective Elven Unconscious.

Yet in saying this, we do not mean that anything goes. We do not mean one can disregard the precepts that make the Path to Elfin possible. Not all elves need involve thems’elves in magic, for instance, yet there is something essentially magical about Faerie, Elfin and the Elfae, and if one seeks to create an Elven world without magic, they have gone far astray. So it is, also, with prejudice. There simply cannot be an elven world that prohibits gays, males, females, blacks or anyone for their religious background, their race, gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, or any other aspect of being that they don’t actually have any control over. We don’t even have prejudice against the violent, the fanatical or the greedy, all of whom have a place in Faerie, although it is a dark and unfriendly place where various Unseelie reside, and most of us Seelie Elves avoid. And while they may find a place in Faerie, they will never evolve to the deeper reaches of Elfin until they do, indeed, master their own s’elves. No one can prevent anyone from entering the deeper regions of Faerie/Elfin, except the individual hir own s’elf by hir own behavior. No one has a right to say who is or isn’t an elf, except the individual speaking for hir own s’elf, and yet certain behaviors will certainly keep one from finding those who could help one farther on the Path. We each must look into our own souls, examine our own personalities, and do what we feel best to develop ours’elves as spiritual beings.

This ultimately is a quest for the realization of our true S’elf, and we are called to rid ours’elves of every aspect of being, every behavior, every false notion about ours’elves and others that obstructs that realization. Therefore, while the Path of the Elfin seems to be but a fantasy to most folks, it is based upon a quest for truth about ours’elves, our true natures, and the true nature of the Universe. One needs only restrict ones’elf in so far as it is productive to the development of one’s elven nature. All other restrictions are unnecessary and useless. We try to not judge others by the standards we have set for ours’elves, but by their consistency in living by the standards they have declared to be their own.

It is a paradox of the Elven Path that we must each find our own way, yet in the long run we can only do that together. Thus we seek to help each at the level sHe is at the moment. We do not expect, or demand, more than each is capable of giving or doing, but aid each as best we may, and as best we understand hir path. Curiously, by doing this we are both serving the individual and serving ours’elves. At the same time, one of the greatest things we can do for our Elfae kin is be our own true s’elves, thus we serve as an example to them, and therefore encourage them by this example, as well as actively seeking to empower them to do the same.

As yet, that is at the time of this writing, there are no great charismatic leaders in Elven Culture. Part of that is due to the fact that elves, by our nature tend to challenge authority and have an underlying streak of rebelliousness in our souls. “Question Authority” is not a motto for us, but a lifestyle. Although, it may more accurately be stated, “Question everything.” And we do, sometimes to our own determent. Part of this lack of charismatic leadership is due to the fact that we are simply too much of a fringe society to have anyone charismatic bother trying to organize us, and as we say, we are somewhat loath to be organized. Like our Goth-Emo Pixie cousins, we are unlikely to ever become a part of mainstream society. Yet, in the ages to come, it is likely that such figures will emerge and an elf will only be safe in following such a being’s lead in so much as these “leaders” encourage independent thought and action based upon the individual elf’s sense of what is right for hirs’elf and hir others. Those who create stringent dogmas are not of us, have never been, and will never be so, until they evolve and become the inspiration for independent realization they are destined to be.
