Can We Become Elves?

April 14, 2018

“. . . . all of us who wish to be Elven, no matter what
our genetic lineage, are truly Elven as spirits
and as we lead our lives as elves we become
ever more Elven through the process of shedding
the thought-forms of the more normal cultures around us.”

In most folks’ minds, one is either an elf or fae or not. One is born that way, descended from the Ancient Scythian or other fae folk and that is that. That is certainly the way Nicholas De Vere viewed things in his book The Dragon Legacy. However, that is not the way these elves look at things and even De Vere acknowledged that those who had at least some elven blood, which according to him was a great deal of humanity, weren’t necessarily an elf unless theirs was particularly pure elven blood. And again, we disagree not only because this rather racist and snobbish point of view offends our elven sensibilities but mostly because it is not necessarily true.

We elfae folk are magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, shamans, wizards, witches and magic wielders of various sorts and we are elves because we wish to be elves. We live our lives as elves and thus our magic makes us so. Ours, as we said many times, is a more magical and energetic view of elfin being rather than a materialistic oriented point of view, but then we are evolving toward more spiritual, by which we mean spirited and energetic, lives.

And it is also the case that those who have supposedly pure elven blood may not live the elven life at all or follow The Elven Way, while others who seemingly have no elven blood genetically are very attracted to being elves and strive to live their lives as the elves they instinctively feel thems’elves to be. While those who consider thems’elves to be ‘pure’ elves may say ‘tough luck’ you are not one of us, we Silver Elves say, the more the merrier.

This is due in part because we know that being elves we have somewhat mastered the art of being born into whatever bodies or families or genetic line that is convenient for a particular incarnation. We are not usually interested in being born into our ancient elven bloodline as we are in picking those bodies and circumstances that will help us develop as spirits and assist us to evolve.

Still, there is a soulful memory that is the memory of our spirit within our being that draws us to the Elven Lifestyle. So if you ask us, can someone become an elf? We say, we are all becoming elves. Or really all of us who wish to be elven, no matter what our genetic lineage, are truly elven as spirits and as we lead our lives as elves we become ever more elven through the process of shedding the thought-forms of the more normal cultures around us.

One might wonder then, why would we do such a thing. Why be born in other bodies from other genetic lines at all? And the answer is essentially twofold. One of which is that having been persecuted and oppressed as elves and fae, we found there were less and less elven bodies to be born into and so we decided to be born as the children of our oppressors so we could transform their genetic line, as well as torture them a bit in revenge when we were teenagers and love them to death when we are children and when we, and they, get older.

But the other aspect is that, indeed, studies in the field of epigenetics show us that the deoxyribonucleic acid/DNA and the genetic code in our bodies can be altered by our behaviors and so we alter a genetic line to make them more like us, influencing their culture and their genes. It is true that frequently they see us, even when we are born among them, as the ‘black sheep’ of their families. But still, you’ve got to start somewhere.

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

—Excerpt from page 26 of Through The Mists of Faerie by The Silver Elves.
“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.”

Do Elves Believe in Past Lives?

August 21, 2017

“Even more importantly, we believe in future lives. And more significant than that, we believe in the possibility of gaining continuity of consciousness….”

     Life is eternal. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. However, the particular forms that energy takes are transitory and, in many ways, ephemeral. The energy that composes our beings is essentially stardust. This sounds poetic, but it is really a scientific fact. Although, from an elven point of view, it is both poetic and scientific. Scientists from our experience are often romantics.

Thus the energy that is at the essence of our being is eternal and from a physical point of view, there is no reason why in the trillions of years of life the energy that came together once to create our being wouldn’t eventually come together again. After all, we have forever. We have explored all this in a number of our books. Faerie Unfolding is particularly recommended.

But when we talk of past lives, what we really want to know is not if the material form that we currently inhabit has been before, we might say conglomerated previously, but that our essence — which most people think of as our soul but we elves would call our spirit — has lived previously, even if in fact as is most often the case, we don’t necessarily consciously remember it having done so.

And so our answer is yes, we believe in past lives. Even more importantly, we believe in future lives. And more significant than that, we believe in the possibility of gaining continuity of consciousness, which is our ability to remember (more or less) through the lifetimes all that we have experienced, although that does seem a bit much. After all, we sometimes have trouble remembering what we did last week, or had for dinner yesterday, so remembering every detail from a previous life seems not only suspect, but unnecessary.

Of course, many of us are not trying to remember our previous lives so much as forget most of the follies we’ve committed and restructure our memories, as we often do about the dead, into a more exciting and pleasing tale, leaving out the nasty, cowardly and mean spirited bits that are not quite in keeping with our aspirations to be more perfect and powerful beings. Thus we say again, we believe in future lives. For a lot of what we’ve been through, we prefer not to remember or at least we’d rather forget and pretend we weren’t capable of being so disagreeable or ignorant. Still, eventually, we must confront ours’elves for who we are as well as who we’ve been in order to clear away all karma from past lives, to set ours’elves free to create Elfin on the Earth and among the Stars, according to our Visions.

So, if you ask, have we lived before? We’ve lived always. But the question is not so much about have we lived, but how well we’ve lived. It’s a matter more of quality than quantity. And the question about past lives isn’t really, have we lived before, but will we live again? And the answer once more is, we are made of stuff eternal and partake of its life, on a journey never ending and Elfin eternal and everlasting awaits us to bring it to life through our lives.

The Silver Elves say: “While our bodies may grow old, our spirits remain eternal.”


Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning The Silver Elves’ views on the nature of the Divine and its expression and manifestation into the world as seen from those cultures that are most connected to and historically expressive of Elven Culture. It is a further development from our other books, Through the Mists of Faerie, The Elven Way, and Liber Aelph and opens the adept elfin enchanter to new understandings of the Unfolding of Faerie and its magic into the world and our part, as elfin beings, in its expression. The Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples. Come view a sample of Chapter 1 and read the reviews on our website here.

“In the end, we die as we were born and as we elves have ever lived,
embracing the Mystery.”
