elven grandson, Winter Shaman,
thank Teuta Rizai for her review of our book on Goodreads:
Faerie Unfolding: The Cosmic Expression of the Divine Magic
by The Silver Elves is the kind of book that inspires your spirit,
expends your visions, feeds your soul, and breathes a universal opening
More than a potent theosophical treatise, Faerie Unfolding is a unique,
fascinating, inspiring work, which allows complete freedom of individual
search, opinion, and belief.
By skillfully using syncretism the combining and blending a
wide variety of schools of thought, both Western and Eastern, belief
systems and cultural traditions that we are more into contact with,
as well as occultism, mysticism, transpersonal psychology, mythology
and Modernity, the author engages the Elven Culture, a less known
but an extraordinary culture of living love.
As the book offers deep, hidden meanings behind these modes of thought,
cohabiting tenets and practices, it brings unity in variety, which
is to say unity in the variety of the human experience, and that of
all the sentient life.
All spiritually-oriented philosophers, all saints and sages and illuminated
beings The Shining Ones, throughout time have been
in agreement with the fact that this earthly life and all creation,
in its expressions and manifestations, is but a dream, an illusion,
a mystic drama, in authors words a game created for greater
As a means to better understand our place in the universe, to better
understand the Divine Magic and our relationship with It, and to achieve
a mature stage of that of the Shining Ones, Faerie Unfolding promotes
happiness, by showing us the magic of Elven life from within it, and
encourages brotherhood, by bringing us to the good side, to the sacred
path of Truth from the self-deceiving whispers of arrogance that distort
the hearts and minds and thus generate darkness and confusion and
cruelty in the world.
Plainly, Faerie Unfolding holds wonders and wisdom of a kind. The
authors words, a continual spark to his intellect and soulfulness,
become picture-guide to paradise consciousness that we all long to
be imbedded in, whereas magic, thoroughly initiated in all the mysteries
of existence, become reality of a life fulfilled that the Elven lead
a life infused with such beauty, happiness, love, solidarity,
peace, and harmony.
I most highly recommend this book, which the more I found it to be
scholarly stimulating, the more it turned out to be a meditation and
an inspiration on the holy, magic way called Elven Way.
Therefore, this gem of a book is not just an offering to the Faerie
folks but also to the members of other cultures and traditions who
have an intellectual curiosity or a spiritual desire or both to learn
about the enchanting Elven Way of life from within, and find answers
to such burning questions as how can we transcendent the limitations
of the material world and those of theology and logic and reach our
center of being in the limitless cosmic womb, and realize balance,
responsibility, freedom, ecstasy, and peace, in two magic words: Faerie

The Divine Magic
At the heart of the Universe or Multi-Universe is the Creative Force
that we Elves refer to as the Magic, or the Divine, or sometimes the
Divine Magic to separate it from its multitudinous forms of manifestation.
It is energy that exists without form, thus as far as humans can understand
it this energy both exists and doesnt exist at the same time.
In its non-existent state it manifests (if we can use that word) as
space or allowance. It is conceived of as the Yin power, the Receptive
force, the Mother of All Things, by the Taoists. In its active state,
it is conceived of as the Yang or Energetic force that propagates
all forms or manifestations. These manifestations are the marriage
of the Yin and Yang forces, which at their heart, remember, are One
Divine Energy that exists in potential in all things.
All things are a reflection or a part of this Great Unity. All Division
is merely an illusion created for the sake of Diversity or as we Faerie
Folk often express it, for the sake of Adventure. We are coming to
know and perfect ourselves through experience. In terms of Jungian
Psychology, the Universe or the Divine Magic could be said to be in
the process of Individuating for the purpose of Self Expression
and Loving Fulfillment.
Naturally, these ideas, while essentially simple, are subtle and this
creates some confusion among those of humanity who are just beginning
as spirits to evolve to a higher understanding of Life, Nature and
Spirit. The Divine Magic is frequently conceived of as being separate
from Man (and other kinds, otherkin, as well) in the form of powerful
Gods or Goddesses that rule over mankind. These god-forms, or individualized
notions of the Divine are often, as the Gnostics point out to us,
Demi-Gods, divisions of the Divine in anthropomorphized versions,
given aspects of personality so that individuals can relate to them
more easily. It is not that these beings dont exist, for surely
they do, but they are reflections of those soulful spirits who have
already evolved through experience to more powerful forms of manifestation.
Yet, however powerful they may be, they are still only a small part
of the Great Whole, the Divine Magic.
Now the followers of Islam and of the Judaic-Hebraic religions attempt
to overcome this misunderstanding by creating monotheistic deities
who have no form, thus have no statues or pictures to represent them.
However, these are still anthropomorphic forms (they still speak of
God as He) of the Divine conceived of as being separate from and,
in a sense, above Man as well as separate from and opposed to other
god-forms. These monotheistic gods being seen as jealous
gods (jealous of what?) and One True Gods, as opposed to the other
false gods. In as much as this impulse to monotheism leads
to a true understanding of the unity of the Divine Magic, this is
surely a good thing, but in as much as it leads to conflict, rather
than acceptance of diversity and unity, it is a step backward.
Notice that the first commandment of the Judeo-Christian traditions
is Thou shalt not have strange Gods before me. Note, it
doesnt say: There are no other Gods. Although this is often
how it is interpreted. Nor does it say, one should not worship other
gods, merely that one should have no other gods before the one chief
god, although again it is interpreted to mean both there are no other
gods, and one shouldnt worship them.
These commandments were in fact a covenant, or pact, between the Hebraic-Judaic
people and a particular god-form, or Djinn of the Desert, a very powerful
elemental spirit, as these elves conceive this being and it is in
the form of a monogamistic relationship. Thou shall have intercourse
with no other gods in this marriage for I am a Jealous God and you
shall cleave only to me.
As we said, the finer aspects of the Divine Magic are subtle and while
simple in their essence are myriad and infinite in their manifestation
and this has eventuated in much confusion among human beings. We Silver
Elves have been tasked by the Shining Ones with the responsibility
to clarify these things, in as much as possible, and in as much as
particular human beings are ready and receptive to receive these higher
While this planet is often called Earth, we sometimes call it Avylyn.
Although, just as various ethnic groups and cultures with different
languages have different names for this planet, so do we have differing
ways of referring to it. Sometimes, with tongue-in-cheek and a sense
of pixie humor, we even call it Muddle Earth, for there is so much
confusion here at this time.
Among the many misunderstandings and confusion is the idea that Faerie
is strictly a product or creation of Celtic or European cultures.
It is true that such books as Evans-Wentzs Fairy Faith in the
Celtic Counties and Roths American Elves make it clear that
this is not the case, yet few but those beings already interested
in Fairy lore are acquainted with these works. Still, it should be
clear that every culture has its form of angels, demons, monsters
and various manifestations of supernatural beings and we elves see
these as all being part and parcel of the various regions of Faerie.
Just as different cultures call Avylyn by different names, so do they
conceive these beings and Faerie itself by different titles. Yet Faerie
exists as a mystic and magical state of being all over Avylyn and
beyond for Faerie is the title we give those various forms of the
Divine Magic as it manifests outwardly into Super or Supra Dimensions
and Beings. Just as the Divine Magic exists in potential in all things,
so does Faerie exist everywhere. However, just as some individuals
are more developed or more receptive to spiritual illumination, so,
too, are some places more receptive to and better transmitters of
Faerie energy, which is to say the energy of the Divine Magic as it
manifests into form.
We elves say if you wish to speak to the trees you need to learn the
language of the trees. The Shining Ones, those more evolved spirits
who guide these elves, know that there are things that are impossible
to understand until one has developed to a certain degree of Initiation.
They understand that there are certain concepts that are difficult
to translate in English or any other language of Avylyn, yet it is
these languages we must use to communicate with the humans on this
planet; however, that is not entirely germane in itself. We endeavor
here to make the Divine Magic and its manifestations through Faerie
as understandable as possible to the inhabitants of Avylyn or Earth.
Just as one language may have words, terms or ideas that are not easily
translatable into another language so, too, are we limited by the
conceptual development of the evolutionary state of most of the humans
who currently inhabit Avylyn. But be not dismayed, for every revelation
comes in its own time when one is ready, or if one is not ready it
is held in ones consciousness and memory until such time as
its message will unfold. Thus while it is possible that some who read
these words will not immediately understand all the concepts offered
here, they need not worry, comprehension will come in time.
In as much as possible, we will strive to make these ideas comprehensible
in Avylian terms and will give some basic definitions to promote clarity
as we proceed with this book. Because of this you may perhaps be better
served by conceiving of the ideas that follow not as absolute truth
but as a reflection or allegory of the true nature of the Cosmic Dimensions.
Think of it in the same way you might consider Tolkiens Silmarillion,
as a reflection of a world view and use it to promote your own understanding
of the genuine nature of Life and Consciousness and the unfolding
manifestations of evolutionary awakening.
This world, Avylyn, is one of many planets; each bearing their own
forms of life in the local Universe or Dimension called Elfin. This
Universe is just one of many manifested Universes and is part of a
super Universe Faleys, whose capital is Faleas from which the supra-dimensional
elves who support, nurture and guide us hail. Faleys is but one of
seven super-dimensions and you will find this fact is reflected continually
in the nature of seven as a significant spiritual number. Thus there
are seven evolutionary root races upon Avylyn, each with seven sub-races,
and seven rays of manifestation, seven chakras, seven heavens, seven
wonders of the ancient world, seven celestial spirits that guide mankind,
the seven spirits before the Throne who are Makers of the Law and
other esoteric references to this number. This significance of the
number seven and its evolutionary meaning is reflected in the seven-pointed
elf or faery star that so many of our people wear.
These seven super-dimensions unfold from and in a sense circle around
the Divine Magic in its radiating aspect, although again it must be
understood that the Divine Magic exists as a potentiality in all Being
and Non-Being. The Divine Magic is Eternal and transcends time/space,
which is to say it is faster than the speed of light. It is Eternally
Now, always has been and will ever be. We refer to its seven dimensions
as Faerie Unfolding and we may conceive that the Divine Magic is at
their center, both at the center of the dimensions but also at the
heart or center of every part of the dimensions. This is an occult
truth and is a reflection of the fact that the Divine Magic both Is
and Is Not while Being at the same time (thus IsIs). Because of this,
we experience ever more subtle forms of consciousness as we advance,
but primarily we understand ourselves as being either conscious
or unconscious, awake or asleep. Still, these are all reflections
of our Manifest and Unmanifest Being.
We might conceive of the Inner Most dimension (and again we are using
that term in an analogous sense) as the most perfected version of
the Divine Magic manifest and thus closest to it and most like it.
Magic happens near instantaneously in that realm since it is functioning
at the speed of light. We call this central dimension
Avalon, the magical, mystical Isle of Paradise and it is spoken of
in some books as the Garden of Eden. It is here the God
or the Divine Magic in its first and last manifest and most perfected
form abides. But in thinking of it as God or Goddess
or really both and neither at the same time, it is important to understand
this is Pure Being and has form only as Divinity or Perfection without
limitations or manifest form beyond Pure Awareness or Sentient Consciousness.
It is not separate from us except in the sense that we have as yet
to realize our Oneness with it. We are all part of, limited aspects,
of its Being, as cells in our own bodies are limited aspects of our
being, yet complete in themselves.
The Seven super-dimensions in their entirety and Unity with the Divine
Magic we call Faerie Unfolding. They are all part of the evolving
Universe in its manifesting, thus organizing stages, as the Divine
Magic reaches out, or stretches into the unmanifest or unorganized,
or Chaotic regions of the Eternal energy, which we generally refer
to as Outer Space.
The Divine Magic As It Manifests Through The Shining
As we pointed out, all God-forms are limited aspects of the Divine
Magic. Some seek to posit their particular ideas of their personal
Deity as being all powerful, all knowing, etc. and in that way they
reflect the Divine Magic, but the Divine Magic is not a person but
Pure Being of which each and all of us, each and everything partakes,
for it is Life and it is more than Life.
All god-forms are in fact representations of various Shining Ones
or Powers that exist in the myriad dimensions of manifestation. Those
that nurture and promote the evolution of all beings, urging them
toward perfection are considered Seelie Folk or the Faeries of Light.
Those that demand unthinking obedience and are seen as dominating
forces forever above all other spirits, are often of the Unseelie
or Dark Faerie folk (as we proceed, however, we will offer you other
definitions of the Seelie and Unseelie). However, in saying that,
it should be noted that these Powers or God-forms are not always,
perhaps seldom, responsible for what their followers do and believe.
There are some very evolved spirits, such a Jesus, for instance, whose
followers take their teachings and twist them to fit their own ethnic
and cultural aspirations and prejudices, the same is true of Mohameds
teachings. Many have been murdered in Jesus name but this is
not Jesus doing and in no way reflects his essentially loving,
thus elven, message.
Still, it is important to understand that all god forms, angels, djinn,
elves, and even demons and vampires are spirits who have obtained
a certain level of Initiation and magical development; some of them
so much so that, in as far as we are concerned, they are quite god-like
in manifestation. However, it is important to understand that the
Divine Magic seeks to express itself fully and completely and in all
its forms and thus every being is meant to perfect itself and to become
god-like in manifestation while being in positive association, or
love, or unity, with all other beings. In cosmic terms, anything that
promotes this perfection of the individual natures of the Divine Magic
is good and anything that obstructs it is essentially evil. Although,
it would be unwise to take this too literally for all obstruction
and separation from the Divine Magic is an illusion and is part of
the Great Play or Dream that the Divine Magic is enacting.
The question arises: how can we be part of the Divine Magic, an expression
of it, and yet not know this? We dont mean to sound flip, but
this is the truth: the answer to that is that that would be no fun.
Life is meant to be an adventure. Surely this is the elven understanding
of the Divine movement outward. We might think of this expression
of the Divine Magic, as it vivifies all possibility, in terms of the
Matrix. To experience all things fully and completely the Divine Magic
gives itself amnesia so it will see the illusion as real and interact
with it fully. Perhaps a better analogy is a dream. Just as you experience
a dream as being real while you dream it, so, too, does the Divine
Magic, in its manifestations as each of us, experience this illusion
as being real. In simple fact, as the Divine Magic becomes individual,
and it is each and every individual, it loses touch temporarily with
the whole. That is to say, it loses conscious awareness of this underlying
unity for the sake of bringing consciousness to each individual part.
The process of perfection entails the development of the individual
as a perfected part of the whole.
Why didnt it create us perfect to begin with? The answer is,
really, that it did create us perfectly in the first place, however
since all possibilities exist simultaneously and since the act of
creation is a movement of expression, it entails time, which is to
say functions within the speed of light. These possibilities exist
as parallel worlds all alive at the same time, but not all vivified
by our consciousness. We, as conscious beings, which is to say, magicians
and elven enchanters, choose which worlds to live in through the choices
we make and the actions/magic we take. And all beings who desire and
take action on those desires or act with will and intent are magicians
whether they admit to this or not, whether they define their actions
in that way or in some other terminology. After all, the terminology
of magic is our choice and not necessarily the way others may describe
what they do. Still, the phenomena is the same and the result is essentially
the same as well, for we are all becoming Shining Ones, or individuals
of power. And by that we dont mean authorities, or having a
temporary power by virtue of some position in the world, but true
power, the power of the self and personality, the power of spirit
and of soul. For this is the primal drive of Spirit to succeed. In
writing this book, it is our will and intention to assist you in developing
your own magical power and your awareness of your starry heritage.
