What Can We Do to Help Manifest Elfin in this Material World?

August 23, 2019
SEevocation“If we wish to manifest Elfin in the material world . . . . we must develop ours’elves as soulful spirits that exist within and upon the various planes of manifestation. In many ways, the most important of these planes, in terms of altering our world, is what we might refer to as the plane of magic, which is to say that realm where energy and action combined with will and intention are most potent and powerful. We need to live with true intent. Manifesting as the elves, faeries, pixies or the others that we know ours’elves to be as best we may in this world on each and every day. By doing this we emphasize the power of magic, the power of spirit and the true energetic nature or ours’elves and the world around us.”

     Many people wish to find Faerie or Elfin, which they believe exists as a realm, somewhat like this world, only a bit more ethereal and certainly more magical. What they don’t seem to understand is that to find that world they have to become more ethereal thems’elves. It is true that some folks who have psychic perception can view the Other World from time to time and it is also true that certain plants, mushrooms and trees can offer one a temporary glimpse of that world. But if we wish to manifest Elfin upon the Earth, as these elves do, then that is going to take a dedication to living the Life Elfin or Elfae and making real what exists in potential.

     Or, if you wish to abandon this world, and we wouldn’t blame you if you did, and go and live in that other realm, you need to understand that you can’t really do that with your body as it now exists. You essentially have to leave your humanoid body behind, or your physical material body if you aren’t human, in order to enter and stay in that realm. In other words, that realm is usually only entered after we have abandoned our material form and even then, most of us return to this material world again, fairly quickly in most cases, because we, despite what we might think, just aren’t finished with what we have to do and what we desire here.

     Some folks might think that if they just walk off into the wilds of Nature they will find Elfin or Faerie, but they surely will not, at least not in the form that they desire. They may find wild, unseelie Faerie, but that is not always a good place for gentle folk to be and it can always prove dangerous and demanding.

     Others might hope that in ending their lives they will be transported there, but if that is the case it is so only briefly, if at all. Alas, the energy that drives people toward suicide is the very energy that ties them to this world and returns them here, again and again. Suicide is like a hallway with a door at each end and if you go out one door you find yours’elf coming into the hallway from the other, over and over again. There is no quick route to Elfin, there is no easy escape from this world. It is, however, in this world and through this life that we attain Mastery and it is through Mastery that we are able to create Elfin.

     If we wish to manifest Elfin in the material world, or if we wish to leave this world for Elfin or Faerie as it exists upon more etheric planes, we must develop ours’elves as soulful spirits that exist within and upon the various planes of manifestation by excepting our true Nature. In many ways, the most important of these planes, in terms of altering our world, is what we might refer to as the plane of magic, which is to say that realm where energy and action combined with will and intention are most potent and powerful. We need to live with true intent. Manifesting as the elves, faeries, pixies or the others that we know ours’elves to be as best we may in this world on each and every day. By doing this we emphasize the power of magic, the power of spirit and the true energetic nature of ours’elves and the world around us.

     This is not entirely easy, although as elves we surely are inclined naturally and instinctively to pursue the path of least resistance in nearly every circumstance and situation. But the world as is will not help us in this endeavor or surely not willingly and we are best assisted in this quest by others upon the path. Not only other elves, for those of us who are elven, or other faeries for the faerie folk, or therians or whatever, but those who understand and except the exceptional nature of reality and accept and appreciate our uniqueness and our understanding of ours’elves as otherworldly beings. Finding others of our kind with whom we can tread the path is not easy usually, but in finding them the path becomes a great deal easier. Till then, only the truly strong, the truly dedicated can endure this path for long when treading it alone. We would surely have given up long ago, if we did not have each other.

     But another means of manifesting Elfin involves the ethereal planes of the astral feeling planes and the mental imaginal planes of being. By feeling Elfin, and putting depth of feeling into our magic and enchantments, we bring Elfin alive. How do you put your feeling into your magic? Not, as some would think, with extreme emotion, although that is not without some power, although not as much for elfin folk, but by touching that part of ours’elves that loves Elfin and Faerie and all things Elfae and channeling that energy into our enchantments.

     And further, we can see Elfin and Faerie all around us, if we just allow our imaginal facility to flow, while still holding on to our understanding of the world as others see it. To see only Elfin and Faerie is to become unattached to the normal world, which is rather like being unaware that a poisonous snake lives near you. It is what normal folk used to refer to as “being away with the Faeries,” by which they meant the person was a bit insane but usually not dangerously so.

     Rather, the trick, the pixie trick if you will, is to stand between the worlds and see both of them at the same time, recognizing both realms and planes of manifestation but acting, as much as possible, in such a way as to manifest Elfin. You still see that poisonous snake and take precautions concerning it, but you know as well, that it is just another denizen of Faerie, simply of the more dangerous variety. Normal folk are usually not normal at all, unless you consider dysfunctionality as normal, which they do (see an excerpt from our book Elven Psychology: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders and sold on Amazon here), but rather they are really some sort of other hiding their true natures and in hiding creating a mess in the world. Although, it is true that many of them are under a dark sorcerous spell that has hidden their true natures from them, and leaves them struggling with thems’elves and each other because they can never truly be happy until they do know and accept their true natures.

     But perhaps the greatest thing one can do to manifest Elfin, beside becoming the best elf, faerie or other one can be, is to nurture the Elfae energy in others, support all their positive attempts to manifest thems’elves and foster their sense of their own otherworldly nature. These attempts that we sometimes see from individuals of Elfae blood who attempt to deride others for thinking or seeing things differently, that seek to deny others their own right to be other, is a residual dark spell born of the normal world and is not truly elfin at all. As we do our best to promote the otherworldly aspirations of our others, we find that our kindred are everywhere, and the Path grows ever easier thereby.

ELVEN PSYCHOLOGY: Understanding the Elfin Psyche and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders!

elvenPsychBookcoverbigELVEN PSYCHOLOGY: Understanding the Elfin Psyche
and the Evolutionary and Esoteric Purpose of Mental Disorders

ELVEN PSYCHOLOGY is written from a unique elven perspective about the present day human condition, which includes an exploration of the psyché of both normal folk and elfae. We elves are elven by spirit, so our entrance into humanity is the addition of a new spiritual race, not a new physical race, and elves have been born in these modern times into all physical races, as well as most cultures and religions throughout the world. In fact, there are many who are following esoteric Ancient Wisdom Traditions, as well as some Tolkienists, who through the process of benevolent evolution, see ‘elf as the new normal’ or majority of humankind in the not so distant future. So, it is important to update many areas of academia that explore, express, and explain human life; psychology being one of these.

Thus this book expands the realms of modern psychology, which has never before included the elves and otherkin population as being real. If one says that they are an elf, most psychologists today will still hold you in suspect of having a delusionary disorder and try to evaluate you further. We explain in Elven Psychology why from a standard psychological point of view that believing you are an elf does not in itself constitute a disorder even in traditional psychology, and then we go much further and explore the disorders and psychological struggles that we observe in our modern society in both normal folk and elves/otherkin, along with the spiritual purposes of disorders and new perspectives for healing.

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

Through the Mists of Faerie is our most popular book by The Silver Elves, along with The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones

“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.

What Do Elves Think of Psychiatry, Psychology and Modern Therapists?

August 2, 2018
psychebookinsidegrensmall
“Oddly, the inner self is not generally viewed as real in this mundane world, similar to and perhaps even more profoundly than how the world of mankind has denied the existence of elves. The importance of developing the self and even its existence at all, is absent in most modern forms of psychological therapies. And it is certain that until mankind views their own inner Nature or self as real and important to nurture, they will not only feel disharmony and psychological discomforts but also will continue to deny the existence of elves who experience both inner s’elf and outer Nature as one. We elves understand that people can be healed of psychological discomforts by viewing the inner self as real. And then once the self is fully nourished and developed, the person will feel balanced and instinctually make healthy decisions.”

First, let us say, we are psychologists, if you mean this word in its literal sense, as those who study the psyché. Shamanism, and really sorcery, are forms of and ancestors to modern psychology. In fact, magic and the magical arts are the sources of nearly every study in the world including medicine, botany, theatre, religion and much else (see Frazer The Golden Bough). In fact, these elves have Masters degrees in Psychology, so when we say we are students of psychology and of the psyché, we are being quite literal about that. The mind and the feelings, which are greatly connected to the unconscious, are fascinating to us.

There is an idea in popular magical lore that if you know a person’s true name you will have power over them. What this really means from an elven point of view, is that if you truly understood a person, understood them from their own point of view, then you would have the power to influence them (see I Ching #61 Inner Truth) and thus affect their thoughts and behavior. This is also the common idea of psyching someone out. Although, for the elves, such influence is used generally to move individuals toward greater inner and outer harmony.

Professional psychologists and psychiatrists are a different matter. Unfortunately, these days, where nearly everything including one’s attitude and point of view are seen as a result of the biochemistry of the brain and body, psychiatrists (we were told by an elf brother who is one and works for a major hospital chain) have become mostly script writers for pharmaceuticals. Sort of diagnostic pharmacists. Of course, this is the Kali Yuga, and thus it is only natural at this juncture in the evolutionary development of humanity that the world is viewed as being a primarily material event.

Even those therapists who can’t (because they don’t have a doctorate in medicine) or don’t prescribe drugs, are generally only partially, or even marginally effective. Years ago, there was a research study that had two groups, a test group of people in therapy and a control group of people who didn’t go to therapy. They were studied over a period of time and it was discovered at the end of this period that of those who were in therapy about a third got better, a third got worse and a third stayed the same. Interestingly, in the control group of those who didn’t go to therapy, the results were exactly the same, a third got better, a third worse, and a third stayed the same. One might think that the researchers would conclude, as many people do in modern society, that psychology and therapy is essentially useless. But instead they concluded that therapy was only as good as the therapist. Which probably could also be said of auto-mechanics, doctors, dentists and even actors and directors.

The great minds of psychology and psychiatry, such as Freud, Jung, Maslow, Rogers, etc. were very effective as therapists, because they put their heart and their souls (as well as their minds) into their relationships with their patients. However, many therapists today are simply following a formula that they’ve been taught for every patient and this is barely effective. And the fact is (and these elves know it from personal interaction, for we know a number of psychologists), they can be just as screwed up in their personal life as those they seek to treat. But then, you don’t expect your dentist to do his own root canals, so that is not totally unreasonable, although there is some expectation that psychologists should be somewhat saner than most folks. So, while these elves respect modern psychology and psychologists, we don’t think that it is generally a very effective method at this point for helping people. But then, in its modern manifestation as a science, psychology is a very young discipline and needs time to evolve.

But the main thing that we question about many modern forms of therapy, is the hierarchical aspect of the therapist-patient relationship. In our experience, it is a personal and caring relationship that is most potent in enabling people to change. And most often, it is in our personal lives of love and romance that most encourages people to strive to really improve thems’elves. Carl Rogers, in the 1940s and 50s, was certainly on the right track with his Person-Centered Therapy that was an empathic and non-authoritative approach, empowering and motivating people in the therapeutic process. And of course we are not saying that all forms of modern psychological therapies are without this important aspect of the caring relationship, but those that mostly concentrate on dispensing pharmaceuticals and offer little else, certainly lack this important ingredient of care that is so necessary for any real change in the person’s condition.

Dr. Timothy Leary, a great modern psychologist, was of the opinion (shared by ancient shamans) that people were neurologically templated to believe and behave in certain ways and simply unable to make any real change unless the synaptic links in their brain were released and re-wired, so to speak, using a variety of shamanic techniques and technologies. This aligns itself with the same biochemical theories mentioned earlier, only the pharmaceutics prescribed would be different and there are other life changing and sometimes life-threatening events that can also produce the same effect. Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) is essentially a result of such rewiring of the brain.

But there are other techniques, such as one might use on a Vision Quest, like drumming, dancing, chanting and so forth that can also produce this effect of rewiring the brain in a more positive fashion. Often this is what is happening when one encounters a highly spiritual person and experiences an epiphany or revelation. Frequently, when one awakens to their elfin, faerie or otherkin s’elf, it is due to just such an experience. It is a profound spiritual revelation.

Thus, these elves don’t do traditional therapy with people, although Silver Flame has held a license to do so and Zardoa could practice as a psychologist in some states. What we do is relate to our kindred as best we are able and on occasion we offer the Somatic Reflection Process to help unite body and mind (see book What’s Behind Your Belly Button? by Love and Sterling).

We elves see the inner self as real and attempt to assist our kindred to nourish their own inner being and instinctive needs with both caring and acceptance balanced by freedom of expression. Oddly, the inner self is not generally viewed as real in this mundane world, similar to and perhaps even more profoundly than how the world of mankind has denied the existence of elves. The importance of developing the self and even its existence at all, is absent in most modern forms of psychological therapies. And it is certain that until mankind views their own inner Nature or self as real and important to nurture, they will not only feel disharmony and psychological discomforts but also will continue to deny the existence of elves who experience both inner s’elf and outer Nature as one.

We elves understand that people can be healed of psychological discomforts by viewing the inner self as real. And then once the self is fully nourished and developed, the person will feel balanced and instinctually make healthy decisions. Our hope is to help, guide and nurture our elfae kin as we best are able to do so, and to be with them as their loving and affectionate kindred in a world that often seems as though it was designed to drive us all crazy.

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 (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. Simply follow this link and the directions on that page:

“Elves don’t make a strong distinction between what is real and what is artificial, for everything is really something even if it is not really what it pretends to be. Rather, we look at the world and distinguish between those things are an organic whole and therefore vibrating life and those things that are composites of other energies. The first tends to radiate energy, the second is inclined to absorb it. The first, a star, the second, a black hole. And yet, when a black whole is full, it bursts again into stardom, and so the Universe goes ’round, like the dance of the fae around the fires of creation.”
—The Silver Elves

Does One Have to be Brave and Courageous to Enter Elfin and Faerie?

July 20, 2018

silverorb2copy
“Elfin is less dangerous than Faerie and one is usually much safer there. Still, it does take a certain courage to live one’s life as an elf in the world …. For following the Elven Way and living one’s life as an elf in the world, automatically moves one closer to the realms of Elfin that
begin to appear about one, manifesting as
a consequence of one’s magic.”

Faerie, particularly, is like a dream world. One might have pleasant dreams or one may have nightmares. One doesn’t need to be courageous to sleep usually, but there are those who stay awake as much as possible for fear of their dreams. We’ve known some people like this. So, in a sense, it does take a bit of courage to intentionally go into the Faerie realms and take one’s chances on what one might encounter there for one might encounter a nightmare.

At the same time, many a fool has wandered into Faerie unknowingly and they weren’t necessarily brave in doing so. And many a kind and gentle soul has ventured into Faerie as well and been protected and guided by the fae folk who love them and find them intriguing. So, while being courageous is surely a strength and a power that some folks have, not all of us are courageous and while courage can help if one is determined to adventure into the Unseelie realms of Faerie, there is nothing that bars the timid from entering Faerie. If you have just a pinch of courage or simply are heedless of the dangers, you may still find your way there.

The same is true in a sense of Elfin although, for the most part, Elfin is less dangerous than Faerie and one is usually much safer there. Still, it does take a certain courage to live one’s life as an elf in the world and in doing so come closer to Elfin. For following the Elven Way and living one’s life as an elf in the world, automatically moves one closer to the realms of Elfin that begin to appear about one, manifesting as a consequence of one’s magic, whenever one does so.

The World of the normal folk can be a harsh and dangerous place at times for the elfin, as well as for nearly everyone else. So, we might ask ours’elves, does one have to be courageous to live in the world. And the answer is, well, it helps but there are many of us timid folk, doing our best to be brave in encountering the world, who really aren’t all that courageous really.

In many ways, it takes a great deal more courage to live in the normal world and among the normal folk than it does to live in Elfin or Faerie. They can be a dangerous lot and once you realize the truth, that the normal world is really just Faerie in disguise, it is all the same really. What can we do but be the best elves we can be and trust that our kindred will find us and take us home to Elfin where we will be truly safe.

And it should be remembered, there are different types of courage. Some folks might be physically brave and willing to stand up to potential violence and aggressiveness but not very brave morally or spiritual. They may face the enemy on the battlefield but don’t dare oppose or challenge the customs and dictates of the traditions of their society.

And some elves and fae just aren’t ready to live openly as elfae in the world and so do privately, in the closet, so to speak, and they still draw closer to Elfin and Faerie by doing so. They may not be brave enough to wave their elf flag, or banner, or gonfalon or whatever in the world, but by living the life Elfin they grow closer to it. And really, that is courage enough, isn’t?

The Elven Way: The Magical Path of The Shining Ones

(Excerpt below from The Elven Way, page 141)
“As the awakened elf takes on greater initiation and begins to function creatively in cooperation with the Shining Ones and with Faerie itself, which is to say the Source, the great Magic, hir magical growth is quickened by the increased power and the intensity of the forces that sHe now uses for hir magical creations. Naturally, this causes a rapidity of evolutionary development that will not be found in your average normal person who most often not only doesn’t embrace change, as the adept elf does, but actively avoids it, in fact, is in many ways terrified by its possibilities. This acceptance of new energies and possibilities by the elf, tends to arouse here-to-fore un-accessed parts of hir being, awakening latent talents, powers and abilities. Remember most humans only use a small portion of their brain capacity, and this increase in energetic connection tends to illuminate greater portions of our brains. In time, this development will prove evolutionarily significant.”

“There are a number of effects of this evolutionary initiatory development for the adept elf, the first of which is that since the elf’s powers are being heightened, the elf thus has more power to do good, as well as being faced with greater temptation, which is to say opportunity, to misuse this power. This is where the development of magical maturity becomes so very important. The elf comes to understand that magic is the use of will power to create effects in the world, but also that initiation requires the development of magical and enlightened intent. It is not enough to be able to create change according to one’s will, one needs to create the type of change that will rebound positively for hir and all others and bring hir ever closer to Faerie by increasing hir awareness of and actualization of hir own true s’elf.”

Zardoa_Quotes4

SMILING FACES . . . . . .

Know the truth in a world of seeming
Elfin manifest all about
Waken now from nightmares dreaming
Elfin puts all fears to rout.

Smiling faces do surround you
Brothers, sisters, cousins, too
Faerie, elf, and pixie beaming
As you realize anew.

The truth of life is one with meaning
A meaning found in love’s embrace
Beneath the trees that are ever gleaming
Radiant upon each elven face.
—Zardoa Silverstar
