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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Excerpt From Chapter 3:

Mountain Stream Elves

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

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

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

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

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

From Chapter 4:

The Mountain Valley Elves

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

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

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

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

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

From Chapter 7:

The Forest Elves

The Darkyndoryn (pronounced dare – kin – door – ren) folk of the Pynåle (pin – nah – lee) clan are a mixed elf and faerie folk who came to the Earth after wandering through the Galaxy for ages in ships that had forests inside them. Alas, their home world was destroyed by an asteroid shower that rendered it inhabitable for ages. They thought at first that they would wander the Galaxy until it was fit to live upon again but in the mean time they came across the Earth and settled here. They prefer to live in the deep forests when possible since that reminds them of their home world and the forest of their space ships.

Unfortunately, their vehicles were rendered inoperable upon entering the Earth’s atmosphere and crashed, although most of the inhabitants survived, however they have suffered a sort of amnesia because of this and have forgotten most of their history. Plus, many were scattered upon entry here and therefore their peoples have diverged and lost touch with each other.

The Pynåle organize thems’elves into a sort of constitutional monarchy with a Queen and her counselors who guide the nation. Rather like England in that way. They call her Lady Star and she wears a star opal in her crown.

While they hope to help and enlighten mankind and others who share the Earth with them, they tend to be loners, are rather leery of man overall, and not beyond taking revenge for slights they have suffered at man’s hands. Thus, they are sometimes seen as Unseelie Elfae, but for the most part they are elves of the light. Still, the fact that many of their kind have dark features, skin tone and hair, also sometimes has them viewed as Dark Elves and so the confusion that arises in some people’s mind between Dark Elven and Unseelie also promotes this misunderstanding. Plus, their flag bears two rampant wolves facing each other holding swords, which suggests they are not beyond participating in the dog-eat-dog world of mankind and the Unseelie if they are forced to do so. But their flag also bears a torch at its very center beneath an elven star, symbolizing the fact that they seek to bring the wisdom of the stars and of the elven peoples to the Earth and illuminate the consciousness of all who are open to its revelation.

So, for the most part, these elfae spend their time practicing the healing arts and are adept at spell casting and have many witches and wizards among them. They are also, like most elves, dedicated to their own creative arts, to gaining knowledge of all sorts and pursuing their personal creative interests. Still, they hope to return to the stars some day and trust that when they do so their own planet will have healed and renewed itself and be inhabitable once again.

 

     The Jalelorfyn (pronounced jay – lee – lore – fin) elves of the Varedåryn (vary – dar – ren) people ever having a feeling for the deep, cool forest and live there whenever possible and hunger for it and dream about it when circumstances force them to be elsewhere. They say the forest sings to them of the stars. For they are star-folk ever in their hearts and by their ancestry and will often refer to thems’elves as the Star Forest People or People of the Starry Forest and often think of thems’elves or call thems’elves Star Children, but that can be said of many elven.

For the most part, these are a very quiet, unassuming folk, who live their lives with joy and, for the most part, don’t interact with humanity except occasionally to wander among them looking for someone who is kin to them, those who are fair or talented, and to bring them into their realm for a while in order to share in the pleasure of their company and by doing so increase their talents, and extend their life potential. Although, it is true, many folks think these ones are mad once they return to the world. The Jalelorfyn warn them not to speak of their experiences, but how can one not rant and babble about a place and people so wondrous, and how else to account for the time one has been missing except to attempt to tell the truth no matter how farfetched it seems. Most people assume that they are crazy or that they joined a cult for a time.

But other than finding companions upon occasion, they have little to do with mankind. However, their view of man and his kind is basically kindly and based on a wish that they become more intelligent, peaceful and loving folk. In fact, that is surely part of the reason they lure or enchant the most promising into their realm, so they may increase their intelligence and abilities, whatever they may be, in a hopes of affecting humanity in general.

There is a Queen among them, who guides her people over all. She is sometimes called the Majestic Star Tree, for she resides under an enormous apple tree that is as radiant as the stars and whose fruit is rumored to prolong one’s life and to be a panacea for all ills. It is said that she is attended by hundreds of house cats, and that there is an eagle that nests in the very top of that tree.

 

From Chapter 16:

The Ocean Elves

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How do Elves Deal with our Homesickness for Elfin?

February 11, 2019

1homesick_cover
“We naturally are ever seeking for our kindred and we are perpetually seeking to manifest (or elfin-fest) Elfin upon the Earth, within our own lives and environment. It is best of course to do both, for they are intertwined, our kindred will help us create Elfin and by creating Elfin we find out kindred.”

2_3_7tinystar

The homesickness for Elfin tends to manifest in two different ways for the elves, and we expect that many faeries and others have a similar response to their own hunger for Faerie or their particular world. The first of these, especially for the elven folk, is an incredible feeling that we are out of place in this world. We sense we are ever different from most of those around us not only in our feelings but usually in the way they react to us. We feel like strangers in a strange land (a line from I Ching) and they also very frequently view us as being weirdos and those who are not quite normal.

     To our own minds, we are not really normal at all and, unlike those around us, we have no interest in being so. To us, normal appears to be a form of insanity and the urge to conform mindlessly and be to normal is like wanting to have cancer or tuberculosis or some other terrible disease. Why would anyone want that?

     And we have good reason for thinking that those who insist that they are normal and try to force their ideas of normal behavior on everyone around them are, at the very least, a little bit crazy and often quite seriously insane. You just have to look at the news each day telling us of wars, rapes, greed run rampant, and people actively destroying the very environment that is necessary for life on this planet to know that there is something seriously wrong with those people.

     We know there will be some who will object to this, saying that this is an us and them consciousness, but we are not the ones who have separated ours’elves from Nature but they. And when we say they, we mean those warmongering, raping, murdering greedy ones who not only do such things, but rationalize those things as though they are a positive value or at least that they have good reason for destroying the Earth and all of us on it. When we say ‘they’, we are not talking about a particular race or religion or nationality, we are speaking of behaviors that are clearly destructive to self and others, and that involve short term thinking and those who regularly and obstinately practice those behaviors.

     When we declare that we are elves, faeries or others, part of what we are doing is saying to the Shining Ones, it’s not us, it’s those crazy people over there destroying the Earth. We don’t wish to be held responsible for their lunacy.  We would heal them if we could. The Spirits know that we have tried and continue to do so. But they don’t even acknowledge that what they do is a problem (and they, of course, think we are crazy for calling ours’elves elves, fae and others) and that hate and prejudice against those who are simply different from them, but no real threat at all, is perfectly normal and acceptable behavior.

     The other aspect of homesickness for the elfin and elfae is the fact we elves, in particular, seem to hunger for our kindred. We are ever searching for our elfin families and hoping to find other elves near us or within easy moving or traveling distance. Often, of course, this desire is tied up with our romantic and sensual desires. We wish to find our kin who are our soul mates. We seek romance which will, at the same time, fulfill our need and longing to be our own true s’elves in the world and to express our s’elves freely.

     We expect that many fae and others feel the same way, although we have encountered many elfae who simply have given up, in a sense, and perpetually refer to thems’elves as loners, feeling that they will never find another of their kind that they can relate to and who will understand them as well. Our homesickness is not just about or primarily about Elfin or Faerie as a place, but is an eternal longing to be with our own kind and those who are similar or at least conducive to and sympathetic of our true natures. What good would it do to be in Elfin, if we were there all alone?

     Thus, most elves seek to overcome our homesickness in two primary ways. We naturally are ever seeking for our kindred and we are perpetually seeking to manifest (or elfin-fest) Elfin upon the Earth, within our own lives and environment. It is best of course to do both, for they are intertwined, our kindred will help us create Elfin and by creating Elfin we find out kindred. By creating Elfin here, its magic and enchantment vibrates outwardly attracting all those who are attuned to its magic. It is true that this is like being a small radio station in a world filled with huge stations ever broadcasting their wicked spells into the world, but what else is there to do but do our very best? And having done that, in time, here or in another dimension, we know that our enchantments will fulfill themselves and we will find ours’elves in Elfin, among our very own. And toward that day we ever strive.

“The Elves believe that time is not a line going from the past through the present and into the future, but a star radiating light in all directions. If you wish to time travel to the past, you must return to the center. If you desire to go to the future, you must expand outwardly sharing your light ever farther.”

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: http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html.

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

WHAT AN ELF WOULD DO: A Magical Guide to the Manners and Etiquette of the Faerie Folk by The Silver Elves is a wry, sly, often tongue in cheek view of how elves see and interact with the world of the Normal folk as well as with Otherkind of all sorts. It is designed to help the elfin everywhere to move through the often mysterious cultures of mankind with confidence and ease.

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

4whatelfwoulddobig


“Think of
this as “Ms. Manners” for the Otherkin set. Ever wondered how to handle yourself with grace and style whilst traversing the mundane realms? Let this tome be your guide! Lessons on how to present oneself as a skilled and artful Noble are here in abundance.
Insight into human behavior patterns and tips on how to deal with difficult personality quirks are found on just about every page. Delivered with a lovely sense of humour (I’ve laughed out loud many times), the Silver Elves bring us a reference gu
ide to assist withpolishing our manners and bringing etiquette back to our daily lives.”

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

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

How Do Elves Form Families?

July 2, 2018
silver_ZGarden
“. . . .we have elven grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, cousins and every other variation of familial relationship. You could describe this as an extended family, and it truly is, but it would be more accurate really to call it our spiritual family, our family of spirit, our elven, elfae family of related kin and kindred. There is no need to be alone in this world, for our spiritual kin are all around us and our elven family may flower with just the opening of one’s heart.”

In a certain sense, we do it the usual way. However, we elves are generally more aware and more attuned with the fact that we are beings of spirit and energy than many other folks and thus we don’t raise our children to be elves but to be their own s’elves however they wish to interpret that for thems’elves in the best, most vibrant and successful fashion they can be. In other words, we don’t offer them dogma and doctrine, we simply love and nurture them, their aspirations and goals, and encourage them to be the best they can be.

Most children in the world embrace whatever their parents raise them to be. In some cases, as in the reality of genetic distinctive racial types, they don’t always have a good deal of choice in that. However, most of what people are, comes from being born in a particular country or area and thus are raised with a particular political view, the religion or lack thereof of the parents and so on.

So we have it that Jewish people tend to raise their children to be Jewish, culturally if not religiously. Moslems raise their children to be Moslem; Christians to be Christian and so forth and every country raises their children to be patriotic citizens and to think that their culture, nation and people are the best in the world. Thus, we take on the religions and politics of our parents, although, there are those, usually just a few, who stray into other realms, depending upon their own evolutionary development and how liberal or fanatical their parents actually were. And with these various inherited enculturations, the children also usually get their parent’s—thus their country’s or religion’s—prejudices, slights, schemes for revenge for wrongs done in the past by some competing group and everything else that has led over the ages to myriad sectarian, religious, political, racial and cultural hate and conflict.

But, as we say, we elves are different in that way. Our genetic children are raised to make decisions about politics and religion and other things according to their own insights about life. Of course, we always hope they will see things rather like we do, but we support them in whatever path they do choose, and we trust that whatever they choose is the best path for them. We will always love and nurture them, whichever way they go, and always encourage them to do what is right and fair for everyone. We are not so interested in them calling thems’elves elves as in being the Good Folk that we know them to be.

And as elves, we also adopt various kin who come to us. Actually, it is more like we adopt each other. Thus we have elven grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, cousins and every other variation of familial relationship. You could describe this as an extended family, and it truly is, but it would be more accurate really to call it our spiritual family, our family of spirit, our elven, elfae family of related kin and kindred. There is no need to be alone in this world, for our spiritual kin are all around us and our elven family may flower with just the opening of one’s heart.

We are aware that our genetic relationships, as much as we love and value our children are transitory. This is to say that they are our children now, but after we pass from this incarnation, they may very well become our parents or grandparents in another one. In fact, our daughter reminds us so much of one of our own grandmothers, is so much like her in so many ways, that we are fairly certain it is her reborn.

But the same is true of our elven kindred really. They may be coming to us for kinship and guidance in this life but in the next one we will probably be seeking them out to help remind us of the Way. This life is a spiral, after all, and we are rising together toward the light of Elfin, each of us helping our others who in time help us.

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 about your specific people and your clan, their personal characteristics, magic, relationship to Nature, and interests. This is our gift to you, 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. Simply follow this link and the directions on that page:
