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.”

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.

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 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:

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:
