The Magical Realms of Elfin:
Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path

THE MAGICAL REALMS OF ELFIN contains questions and answers about being elven that many people who are exploring the Elven Way have posed to The Silver Elves throughout the 40 + years that they have been living and sharing the Elven Way. The Silver Elves have put them all in this one book for all those who need a convenient, yet thorough and easy-to-read, resource to explore their questions about who the modern elves are and about the Elven Way or elven spiritual path — past, present and future.

Most often, a person has questions as one tries: to decide if one is ones’elf an elf or is some otherkin; to understand what it means to be an elf and how one might know of one’s elfin nature; to understand one’s experience of having an Elven Awakening; to determine how elven magic is alike or different from that performed by other spiritual groups; to understand the keys to elven magic and enchantment; to explore more about being an elf in a human body and how this is possible; and to learn about how elves live and relate to mankind and otherkin. All of this is covered in The Magical Realms of Elfin along with a complete section for each answer about a myriad of questions about elves, to name just a few: How do you know if a person is an elf or faerie or pixie or whatever? Are there really diminutive Fae Folk? How do you give Elven Blessings? Why are elves born into the normal world? Is being an elf a matter of blood of genetic heritage? Once an awakened elf are you always an awakened elf? What’s the difference between elves and witches? Is Christianity incompatible with being elves? Are elves related to Devas? What is the Orb of Healing? What oracles do elves use? Do elves believe in past lives? Is the sphere of Netzach specifically related to Elves? Do the elves come from a distant star system? How far back in history do elves and the original “Elven Faith” go? Are elves the people of the future?

Recently, the Silver Elves have noticed these inquiries and questions to them about the Elven Way have greatly increased because it seems that more and more people are becoming interested in knowing about elves and the elven community. Many in the elven movement today like to think that there is a spiritual Awakening of elven kin beginning to occur worldwide, and this may certainly be the reason for all the recent curiosity about elves and the Elven Way. Of course, too, Tolkien’s romantic descriptions and understanding of elves made popular by recent movies (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit) have certainly contributed to the growing numbers of participants now joining in the modern elven community, and with a surge in social media this community is becoming more accessible by the day to the general public and sparking more and more excitement and reflection about all things elfin. If you are curious about elves and want to learn more about modern elves, then you will surely find this book by the Silver Elves to contain many
of your questions answered and it will be a great comfort and help in finding your way home to the Magical Realms of Elfin.

We would like to dedicate this book to our elven kin who have asked us over the past four decades many thought provoking questions about the elven path and who have explored the realms of Elfin with us, and with special gratitude to our dear sister Ileådryn
(Sara Hotchkiss).

 

Thank you John Towers for your review (2018) on Goodreads:

"I've been studying Elven Spirituality for a couple of years as I love Tolkien and I found this book to be very helpful in filling in a lot of questions in my mind. It is a book I plan to reread over and over as I contemplate my own elven nature. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about elves, or is on the path already and like me has a lot of questions about being elven. It is very personally written but informative and in the usual beautiful style that I have found other Silver Elves books to be written.

Excerpts from the book:

Are there really diminutive Fae Folk?

As we've said elsewhere and as explained in Nicolas De Vere’s book The Dragon Legacy, the original elves and fae folk were conceived of as being more along the line of Tolkien’s elves rather than the diminutive faerie folk, the little people with wings, that are so popular today. This is true, of course, because our ancestors where real people who lived in the world and although for the most part people tended to be shorter in those days they were still full sized human or humanoid beings of their age and time.

According to De Vere, the diminution of the fae folk into cute little flower fairies was a deliberate conspiracy to diminish the influence of the fae upon the normal world, to erase our memory from the peoples of the western world and to move those peoples away from the Fairy Faith to being more devotedly Christian. These elves, for our part, are not entirely certain that this is so. It is surely true that the Christians persecuted witches and Pagans and even alternate Christian faiths and coopted as much of the various Pagan beliefs and holidays as possible. However, making us seem like very little folk we think is less an effect of their designs than our own, and we feel it was more of an intentional act of our own camouflage to protect ourselves by seeming small and harmless rather than frightening humans.

And surely, making the fae cute little fairies did not erase the popular memory of us but increased it. People love the flower fairies and other little fae. We know we do love them, and our children did and do and loads of others do as well. For ages, we elfae have had to hide our culture in fairy tales, fiction and elf lore to preserve it and this, to us, was just another means of doing that.

So then, do those little fairies actually exist? Of course they do. For our own part, we have always recognized the butterflies, the dragonflies and the moths, the bees and lightning bugs as being faerie folk. The wasps and hornets and mosquitos, we expect, are Unseelie Folk. They have lives and consciousness of their own and these elves don’t feel a need to anthropomorphize everything, giving them little human bodies as some folks seem determined to do. We can communicate with them as they are and we recognize them as fae peoples.

When we were very young we had a next-door neighbor who decided to paint his house but when he got around to the side he found a beehive in a corner junction. The bees were not all that happy that he was there and started buzzing around him. But he told them that if they would leave him alone to do his painting, he’d leave their hive alone as well. And they did and he did.

Still the notion that there are wee fairies that have human bodies has metaphysical significance to it in two primary ways. First, from an elven point of view we have all, including the Shining Ones, evolved through the various stages of manifestation from minerals to flora to fauna, etc. so will these faerie folk of moth, butterfly, dragonfly manifestation, evolve into some sort of humanoid form in the future. Just as we will eventually evolve into Shining Ones, who for their part will evolve into even higher and more subtle realms of being.

At the same time, while the idea of little fairy folk, miniature humans with wings, didn’t seem to exist until a century or so ago, that doesn’t mean that such beings don’t now and haven’t in the past existed on other dimensions. In fact, it should be clear that they do. And in loving them so much and visualizing them regularly, as many do, particularly children, that we are drawing them into this realm and dimension and giving them energy that they can use to manifest here, which is why there are those who have had sightings and relationships with these beings.

As time goes on, if this popular fervor for these beings continues, they will be able to cross over from their dimension ever more fully and manifest here in complete material form, which is to say everyone will be able to see them. Our love and interest is attracting them here and enabling them to more fully manifest. Of course, it will probably be aeons before they are completely substantial here for continuing periods of time, instead just dropping in now and again. But in the meantime, dear kindred, we have each other and Elfin to create and manifest upon the Earth, which is why we are here in the first place. Yes?


Elfin, Faerie or Elfland?

Through the course of time we have come to refer to the realms that we abide in as Elfin. We used to call it Elfland, like many writers, and we sometimes referred to it as Faerie but we have come to see these as terms that, at least in our minds, have a certain difference to them and thus, when we use them, we use them to delineate slightly different things. These are essentially our own definitions and we don’t expect that others will necessarily agree with them but for those who are interested in what we are saying and what we mean in using these terms, here is an explanation of our terminology.

To us, Elfland always refers to a specific place, like England, France and Japan. But for the most part no such place seems to exist upon the Earth at the moment, although there are surely those who would like to create such a realm. There are those who would posit the idea that Elfland exists, in the sense that Faerie does, as a parallel realm that is connected to the Earth at certain places, particularly the wild places of Nature and we can surely see that. But as soon as you put forth that idea you begin to move away from Elfland as a specific place on Earth toward the idea of Elfin, which is a state of being, a people, a culture and a vibration that follows those peoples wherever we may be.

Thus when we speak of Elfin we are referring to the vibrational realm of our mutual elven existence. It follows us around, so to speak, and is born of our being and our interaction. The more of us there are who are living our lives as the elves we know ours’elves to be in harmony with each other, the more powerful this energy, vibration, state of being is.

When we abide in any particular place for an extended time, Elfin manifests Elfland. We make a connection to the land and the land begins to reflect our energy and vibration as we adapt to the weather and atmosphere of the land. If we lived in a particular place for more than a hundred years, then we might begin to think of that place as Elfland, but these elves, at least, are inclined to be a very migratory people ever moving and traveling from here to there. But then we are somewhat nomadic elves.
In a very real sense, the British Isles, which were once referred to as Albion, are Elfland, or certainly were. Alb comes from the root word for elf, elves, etc. Albion is the Land of the Elf Queen, or Elf Goddess, or Elfin Peoples. But peoples change, as do places. This is not to say that elves don’t still live in Ablion, now called England, but we can hardly consider England to be Elfland anymore, although much of our ancient culture still abides there. After all, England produced Tolkien.

Yet, many of us have moved on and we have taken our Elfin with us. While we surely love the land, we are not attached to it in the same way that the legends of Dracula have him having to drag his native dirt around with him. We are more resilient than that and make compact with every land we live in or travel through, bringing introductory gifts for the genii loci, the regional spirits of the land.

Faerie, to our minds and as we have previously explained in this chapter, is vaster than Elfin and much wilder as well. There are all sorts of beings in Faerie. Surely many of the unseelie folk abide there. There are goblins and grimlens and orcs and all manner of folk who couldn’t, until they find some semblance of enlightenment, enter into Elfin. Faerie is wild nature untamed and, at times, quite dangerous, whereas, Elfin is our Secret Magical Garden. We still let some wildflowers grow and certainly an Elven garden doesn’t tend to be overly organized, but still, it is a safe place where none will come to harm unless they bring that harm upon thems’elves and none can enter in until they are mature enough as soulful spirits to do so.

This is not to say that we elves don’t ever venture into Faerie. After all, we have come into this insane world on a mission to awaken our peoples, so from time to time we delve into the dreamlike realms of Faerie as well, where one may have quite pleasant dreams but may also encounter nightmares. The truth is most faeries prefer abiding in Elfin more than they do in Faerie proper, because they are safer there. But then, some of them have their wild side as well and there are times when they are determined
to take a walk on the wild side, and that is surely true of most of us.
