Do You Need to be in Wild Nature to be Attuned to your Elven Soul and Spirit?

 

"Elves seek each other in the world not only because we are lonely without our kindred but because we know that Elfin resides in each of us and is born of our union." 

by The Silver Elves 

Being in wild Nature can surely inspire one and one’s elfin spirit. Elfin and Faerie, while they are often projected and portrayed as being rather wild and there is some truth to that, are primarily a cultural phenomenon. While Nature surely evokes our sense of Elfin and Faerie and our own elfin and faerie-ness, it does so mostly because it takes us away from the mortar and concrete worlds of men that are so organically dead. Nature is alive and radiant and when we are in Nature we can absorb and be healed by its radiance. The world of Men and the Normal folk, on the other hand, being mostly lifeless, sucks energy from you. Nature has its own ambience. The world of Men and the normal folk gains ambience from the people and events that have passed or occurred there. Nature projects energy, the artificial world absorbs it. This is the same, in essence, as the fact that the various statues (over 500 of them) that we Silver Elves have in our eald can serve as teraphim, which is to say houses for various elfin spirits that abide with us (see our book Eldafaryn: True Tale fo Magic from the Lives of the Silver Elves) .

And yet, while it is wonderful to be surrounded by Nature and to live in harmony with Nature, most Elfae culture stems from our interactions in the world. It comes from books, movies, television shows and computers, mobile phones, etc. and in ancient times from stories told around the fire and from oral traditions passed on over generations. And, of course, and most importantly from encountering and interacting with each other and being our own true s'elf. Elves seek each other in the world not only because we are lonely without our kindred but because we know that Elfin resides in each of us and is born of our union. Faerie and Elfin are an artifact of culture and community and that’s just a fact.

At the same time, who of us of elfae nature and spirit doesn’t desire a closer connection to wild Nature, for we are part of Nature? The truth is we wish to live in both worlds, to integrate the two and have them blend harmoniously. Our efforts to manifest Faerie and Elfin upon the Earth through our lives is very much an effort to create a world and culture that is in harmony with Nature and yet retains everything of value in the modern world and surely as it evolves in positive ways into the future. Like mankind in that way, we elfae want it all. Unlike men who say you can’t have it all, we know we can.

And our goal of Elfin manifest is very much in keeping with the Biblical idea of the Garden of Eden and the Earthly Paradise that is promised at the End of the World (see our books Jesus Christ Elf Lord: The Faerie Foundations of Christianity, book one and also book two). A world where the lion lays down with the lamb and doesn’t have him for supper.

We continue on in our own elvish realms, in adoration of Nature and yet very happy to be at this moment in the relative safety of our eald writing this and not having to look over our shoulder to see if some hungry animal is coming along our path. Not that the world of Men is not a dangerous place. It is, as has been pointed out, an ‘asphalt jungle’. Yet, if we had to live in the world of wild Nature, we would do our best as our ancestors did and make the best of it that we can. After all, that’s what they did and they created this world in an effort of improve their lives and ours. In some ways, it is closer to Faerie and Elfin and our more paradisaical world, but still we have a long way to go before those worlds are achieved. And while we shall carry on the work as long as we can, others hopefully will carry it on along with us and others yet will do so after we have gone from this incarnation, continuing on down through the ages.

So, no you don’t have to be in wild Nature to attune to one’s elvish soulful spirit, but it surely can help.

Kyela,
The Silver Elves
