Can One Be Both an Elf and a Faerie?

 

"
. . . an elf faerie or a faerie elf, or a pixie elf, or whatever, is not simply an elf and a faerie but a mixture that has created something new and wondrous."

       
      Can one be both an elf and a faerie? Why not? Faerie and Elfin are the realms of imagination that we are making real in the material world through our own lives and experience. We are manifesting Elfin and Faerie in the world and in those realms, we can be whomever we wish to be. Of course, that takes a bit of effort. In our minds and imaginations, the creation of our elfin realms may be quite fast, really near to spontaneous and instantly arising as say magic is usually portrayed in books and movies where the magician, witch or wizard waves their wand, broom or staff and things immediately transform. However, as quick as this may seem to happen in our imagination, there is a time lapse between when the wand is waved, the spell cast, the enchantment enunciated and the manifestation of the desired result. In the material world, this time lapse can be a bit longer, although that is not always the case. But as the ancient saying goes: Rome wasn't built in a day. And our manifestation of ours'elves and the creation of our realms may take a bit of time as well. But then this is about being elfae in the world and living our lives as so. 

     It is true that we might transform in an instant. We might realize that we are elves or faeries, or elfae of some sort, some combination of elf and faerie, perhaps a being with pointed ears and faerie wings, and we might alter our lives by changing our consciousness in an instant. But there is still a necessity of following through with magic, of making our new realization effective in reality by living it day-to-day. We make it actual through our actions. 

     When our daughter was about four years old, we told her we were elves and she said, in an instant, "I'm an elf faerie." So, there you have it. We elves take the proclamations of the littles very seriously. Before their innocence is obscured or challenged by the madness of the world, they see things purely. So, if a young elf faerie princess says that she is an elf faerie, then obviously it must be possible to be both an elf and a faerie. How can anyone deny that? Certainly, we weren't going to do so, because we made it clear from her earliest days, she could be or become whatever she desired. Now, some folks would look at it from the point of view of genetics and the material view of the world. Her father could be an elf and her mother a faerie and thus she would be part elf and part faerie, a blending of the two. Just as one may be of mixed racial lineage in the world, part Asian and part Caucasian or some other combination. The thing is, these elves just don't look at things that way. Which is to say, we understand in a certain sense the rules of genetics, and we have seen their effect in the world, and we are not denying that reality. But elves and faeries, in our view, are more spiritual races than genetically manifested races, although we are aware that the idea of genetic elven heritage exists and is not without some efficacy. It is just that for us our true home in Elfin exists in the realms of spirit and we are making it real, bringing down into, and manifesting it in the material world. 

     Thus, for us, being an elf faerie or a faerie elf is not like a glass filled with oil and water together but refusing to be mixed. It is more like a glass of different fruit blended together. Therefore, you might say that being an elf faerie is like a smoothie. And elf faeries generally are smoothies. And often a bit sweet. The merging is not two things apart but of two or more things that have created something new. Perhaps, it is better to think of salt, which comes together from the combination of elements. It still contains the elements but they have become something new in their merging. So, too, an elf faerie or a faerie elf, or a pixie elf, or whatever, is not simply an elf and a faerie but a mixture that has created something new and wondrous. We could call them elfae, but we use that term to mean all sorts of elves, faeries, others and combinations thereof. The Whole is greater than the sum of its parts, we might say, but really, it is not greater so much as its own unique being. 

     If you add red paint (elf, let's say) to white paint (faerie), you don't get a light red or a reddish white, nor do you get red on one side and white on the other, like oil and water, what you get is pink. It becomes something individually combined from other things. So are all elfae in our way eccentric, unique and individual beings.

     Still, making it real in our lives and in the world is another matter, and that takes effort every day. It is not enough to be a faerie elf, if you are to manifest it in the world, you must make it real, to realize it in the material world. Be whatever you wish to be. But back that wish up with magic, which is to say with the action of living it.

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 the 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.

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:

"The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known
into the forest of the unknown illuminated by the glow of the elves."
(quote on the top of the book cover)

THE ELVEN WAY: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones describes the Mystical, Magical, Spiritual Path of the Elf folk and their connection to the Shining Ones, those supra-dimensional beings who are our guides, guardians, ancient kindred and the source of Elven enlightenment. The Elven Way takes the reader beyond the field of the known and lays the road into the forest of unknown, revealing new, wonderful and exciting secrets about the world of Magic, the Path of the Elves and the rich Elven heritage. This book is about High Elven Spirituality and Magick, the philosophy of the Elven Way, and the teachings of the Elves. It is written for all elves and all those interested in learning more about and following the Elven Path, for advanced Elven adepts and magical folk of all kinds. The Elven Way reveals much about the Shining Ones, who are the ancient elves and our guardians, our Eldars, who are highly advanced and divine beings that help and protect the modern Elven folk today. It explores both the psychological and the spiritual component of the Elven folk and the development of this component! The Elven Way provides a vast reservoir of knowledge about how this world is arranged and how it works, who the elves are, and what is the Elven Spiritual Path!





"There is no physical feature or features that make someone elven, 
what makes someone elven is the magic of their spirit 
and the wonder of their soul."
—The Silver Elves

You may also enjoy reading an excerpt from Faerie Unfolding here!

Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic is an advanced book of elven philosophy concerning we 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. We Silver Elves illuminate this with a new way of understanding traditional lore and mythology, as well as modern stories of our faerie peoples.

"The Path to Elfin begins in one's soul, 
one's urge to be loving, find kin and be whole, 
it moves through one's mind, one's imagination awakes, 
magic then swirling as the first step one takes."
—The Silver Elves



We are happy to announce that we have just published two books in March 2019 that feature magical narratives of tribes of elves and otherkin:
ELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin and  FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin. Please click on the titles listed above to go to the pages on this blog that are dedicated to each book, where you can read more about them, view excerpts of sample magical narratives and also the table of contents from both books. Elf Tribescontains 150+ narratives of elven tribes, and Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes contains another 150+ narratives of faerie and otherkin tribes. Be sure and click on the title links and read a few of these magical narratives.

Perhaps, you will find your people as you read through these two books, or kindred quite like them. At any rate, you can always do the survey yours’elf, or do it again if you feel you have come to a greater understanding of yours’elf and our peoples in the meantime (or gentle-time as we elves often say).

 

 

Please, dear Kindred, touch this magical star above for an Elven Blessing!
