How do we Silver Elves Deal with People Who Think We Are Roleplaying Being Elves?

March 1, 2019

“If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.”

      How do we Silver Elves deal with people who think we are roleplaying being elves?  We really don’t mind. Generally, we let people think what they want about us. It’s usually easier to let them have their preconceptions, prejudices and unwarranted assumptions than it is to attempt to enlighten them about things that really won’t make much difference in their lives, except for the fact that they would be more enlightened and more aware of the truth of our nature and reality in general. But that can be frightening for them. And we elves really aren’t here to scare people, at least, most of the time, we’re not.

     And in fact, elves in particular and perhaps faeries and others also, often do enjoy ‘roleplaying’ as elves or others even though we are elves. It is certainly possible that elves may role play other beings as well. In fact, in our experience most folks that do role play and cosplay and such, usually have at least a bit of fae in their souls.

     We have found that orcs, goblins and such, and especially ‘real men,’ tend to look down upon those who do cosplay or roleplay. They take themselves far too seriously for that and scorn others who do not. Which is not to say that there aren’t those who might cosplay orcs or goblins, or that there aren’t any orcs, goblins, grimlins who do cosplay, although grimlins would surely be the least likely to do so. ‘Serious’ doesn’t begin to describe the way these grimlins take themselves. Fanatical barely scratches the surface.

     And surely elves might cosplay orcs or goblins. When elves saw the goblins in the Mines of Moria in the Fellowship of the Ring movie, we couldn’t help think what lovely creatures they actually were, if it was not for the fact that they were so hostile and under the sway of Wicked Magic. We thought, as we elves often do, if they were just nice folks we could be quite good friends really. It is only their hostility to us and their ignorant, mindless and persistent destruction of the environment that keeps us from embracing them.

     Traditionally, it is said that we elven folk and our fae cousins are indeed rather playful folk and that is surely true in its way. Like most things about the elven, however, it is a provisional truth, a partial truth and contains its opposite as well, because we can be quite serious folk and we are surely seriously intent upon spreading our magic into the world and manifesting Elfin upon the Earth once more for the betterment of all. And not a moment too soon either.

     There might be those among us who therefore are dismayed that so many folks ridicule our elfin being, individuals who view us and really think they are quite right in their scorn, without a moment’s thought about how rude and ignorant they are being. The idea that there may actually be elves in the world or that we might really be elves, is something that they simply cannot allow themselves to contemplate. The truth is that they are afraid, as so many folks are, of social ridicule and rejection and while we elves are not fond of those things either, we prefer the freedom to be ours’elves to the limitation of social conformity.

     At the same time, we know from long experience that ridicule is just part of the behavioral propensity at this point of the evolutionary stage of many humans. They sometimes kill people for being different than they, for being a gay or transsexual person or a different race, for thinking differently than they do, believing differently, even for looking differently. So, when we find individuals who simply are unable to accept that the identity we have chosen to manifest within in this world is one that they don’t believe even exists, we simply leave ‘sleeping dogs lie,’ as the saying goes. Or as we elves might say, don’t stir rabid dogs.

     If people are most comfortable thinking we are roleplaying or cosplaying elves, that’s okay with us. We elves are not the type of people to push individuals any further than they are comfortable. We are enchanters. We don’t go with the Force, we sway with the Dance. We don’t coerce and compel, we entice and charm. We know that when they are truly ready to see the truth, they will let us know. In the meantime, we will joyfully continue in being perceived as roleplaying, and enjoy pretending that we are pretending to be elves.

     We elves love cosplay, although we don’t tend to mimic characters so much as create our own. In that way we are rather like Tauriel who wasn’t written about in The Hobbit but implied. Our characters are implied by the nature of Elfin.

“We really shouldn’t be surprised when we tell normal people we are elves and they don’t believe us. After all, we’ve spent ages casting a glamor upon them to convince them we don’t exist. Their disbelief is really just an affirmation of the power of our enchantments.” —from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves

We Silver Elves are happy to announce the publication of another of our original Elven divination systems that we have created to be used by Elfae and all other interested diviners:
STICKS AND STONES, FEATHERS,CHARMS AND BONES:
An Original Oracle of the Elfin Peoples of the Ancient Future.

This oracle uses thesticksandstonescover Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves as a base. There are ten of these Sacred Magical Treasures of The Silver Elves in all: The Orb of Healing, The Wand of Wishing, The Coin of the Realm, The Feather of Truth Telling, The Magic Mirror of Reflection, The Sack of Giving, The Philtre of True Love, The Phial of Eternal Youth, The Elf Horns of Calling and the The Torch of the Eternal Silver Flame.

You may ask of the oracle to give you a general reading of what is to come in your life, in which case you will use all the tokens. Or you may wish to ask a very specific question, like, “What is my power in this situation?” In which case, you may wish to only use the Personal Charm. Or you may ask, “In what fashion will the spirits help me?” and then the Otherworldly Charm might be best. Or if you want to know what is behind the situation, what karma or fate has brought you to this circumstance, then the Small Stone might be the wisest choice. But for a balanced reading, it is perhaps best to throw all the magical objects, either together or one at a time to see the various aspects of the situation and get a full view of what is going on.

We read books, the stars,
the trees, the leaves of the tea,
the faces and bodies of those we encounter
and the rocks on the sea shore
and snails’ shining trails.”

Elven Geomancy: An Ancient Oracle of the Elven Peoples
for Divination and Spell Casting
at:
http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAgeomancy.html

ELVEN GEOMANCY is an original system of divination by The Silver Elves that creates a magical ritual with each forecast. The Silver Elves have created a new divination system for modern elves and faerie folk drawing from the ancient geomancy of ages past. It differs quite a bit from the traditional geomancy that was used by the ancients and the people of the Renaissance and Middle Ages. That form of geomancy was at one time rather widely known and popular among diviners, although it has, for the most part, fallen out of use today. Elven Geomancy has 128 possible outcomes that give a reply of a series of seven (like the seven pointed star of the elves) oracles as your response. These seven oracles show the step-by-step process or movement toward the realization of your question. The Elven Geomancy method is also a means of creating magical elfin spells to help bring about one’s wishes. Eight basic mudras are used as well as mantras for each of the oracles are given for creating your own rituals that you can perform in order to increase the potency of what you wish to achieve.
