Many thanks for your review on Amazon, dear Cynthia Faerie (Delfnynasa):
Another wonderful book from the Silver Elves. This is a deep
and thoughtful book, not a quick read. It is not fluffy bunny 101.
( Nothing against fluffy bunnies, but there are enough books for them
now!) This is a book to mull over, to let the thoughts percolate down
to your roots and up again. I can see this being a book I can read
over and over always finding new thoughts.
you Vendelin for your comments on Amazon about our book:
I always enjoy the wit and wisdom of the Silver Elves, whatever
form it may take. This particular book was an enjoyable and informative
Thank you, dear Ileådryn, who writes on Amazon:
This book is pure wisdom.
My life, has been changed for the better, having read it.
Having been a spiritual practitioner, for many years, (A Buddhist),
I still was left with unanswered questions about some things.
Particularly, about mys'elf, others, and life and the universe.
This book answered many of those questions and sparked deep growth
in me that led to several profound spiritual breakthroughs.
I cannot thank enough, the Silver Elves for writing this book, and
the deep wisdom it expresses.
The world is better for the Shining contents of this book.
And we thank Reikibev who writes from Amazon:
This is another enchanting book by the Silver Elves. Who wants
to find their way to Faerie? It's not that hard. "Elfin, Faerie,
Elfland or the Sacred Realm or Dimension of Magic that lives at the
heart of the Universe, is an incredibly attractive power. It draws
all true souls to it."
Within each of us is a spark of Elven. It has been with us since the
beginning. The answers are within, and "within is the gateway
to the beyond." We can find these states through meditation,
deep silence, being alone in nature. We are magical beings, and when
we become aware of our own magic, life then becomes a joyous adventure.
The Silver Elves consider us their kin. They are calling out to us
to come and join them. Somewhere deep inside us, we hear them calling.
And we begin to seek it, hunger for it.
lovely little book aids us in finding our way Through the Mists of
Faerie. To our own true home. Where our kin have been calling us,
to welcome us home.
we thank our Goodreads readers for their reviews:
you Carol Stewart
"Definitely a 5 star book! I have read a few of the wonderful
books by the SIlver Elves and wish I had started with this one, because
it really explains the elven philosophy and makes the folk lore understandable
even in this modern world."
from Ken Tolle:
"This was the first book I read by the Silver Elves and it
awakened me to my spiritual side like no other book has before or
since. For anyone who loves the fae, this is the book to read!"
thank you Nikolay
"Through the Mists of Faerie is probably, the most magical, the
most profound and brilliant book in my life that I have ever read.
It is about the Elven Path, about the Elven Philosophy and about the
Magick, True Elven Magick and the device of this world in its true
essence from the point of view of the elves, ancient spirits in human
This book is written in simple language about not simple things.
Reading this book, you can really experience going through the dense
mist of Faerie forest with the authors and slowly this mist is lifting
and opening before your eyes [and] so many new things that were previously
hidden or covered by a veil of mystery, suddenly, at one moment becoming
clear and understandable."

following is an example of writing from this book, page 67-70, from
Mates and Soul Bonds
Most people are aware of the idea of a Soul Mate, that is a person
one is linked with in ones soul and with whom one is destined
to unite. In the otherkin community there is also the idea of a Soul
Bond, a similar link, that is two or more individuals destined to
be together, however, not necessarily for romantic purposes, as the
Soul Mate usually connotes, but coming together to help each other
on their spiritual path, or as we elves call it the Path of Elfin,
and the journey of the evolutionary quest. Both of these are inspired
by the Soulful Witness, which seeks to unite us with, or help us to
realize our unity with others. The Soul Mate aspect especially has
this energy because, while romantic, it tends to often indicate those
who are so close together that they function and become almost like
one person. In fact in the experience of these elves, most people
who have been together for any length of time do tend to become very
like each other.
This Soul Mate union can become so strong, that is the individuals
can merge so deeply, that in some cases in future lives the individuals
can inhabit one body becoming a greater individual. There are some,
we know, who will immediately bulk at this idea, fearing to loose
their individuality, but you should know that this union is almost
never forced. It happens because these individuals love each other
so deeply that they hunger for greater union and merge together. They,
in a sense, crawl into each others soul. This merging can also
be seen in the hunger by mystics and certain religious devotees to
be filled with the ecstatic love of their chosen god.
Curiously, this can never happen among or between individuals who
are not strong individuals. It is true that some will look upon such
individuals as being weak for yielding their individuality so easily,
but in fact having achieved all they wished, or needed to achieve
as individuals, they then seek a greater, more powerful union based
upon love. They lose their selves in their other. They still
are and yet they are more.
Perhaps this can be seen in what is called multiple personality disorder
where the individual encounters so much stress that it breaks again
into two or more personalities in an attempt to shield the primary
personal, the union, from harm. The therapists dealing with such an
individual seek to re-integrate the personalities into one being again.
The Soul Bond tends to have a similar energy, but one that preserves
the integrity of each soul/spirit participating in the union. This
bond provides mutual assistance for developing spirits. This is along
the lines of what the Buddhist might call Right Association, that
is to say hanging out with others who are also on the Path.
Again, no one, or any power, forces you together with other souls
into one being, or if it does so, it almost never lasts. True union
is based on Love. In fact it occurs because the love is so deeply
felt that the beings merge. It is an effect of True Love.
As weve said, the All of Life, is destined to be consciously
aware. That is every atom in the Universe, every atom in ones
body will become conscious. But you can see that without a sense of
cooperative union such a system would very quickly disintegrate into
its most elemental parts. We are draw together through attraction.
And just like sex draws us together, and offers us pleasure in exchange
for union, the Universe, the Divine, the Magic makes our merging worth
our while with ecstatic bliss.
And yet while we share a body, the body of the Cosmic Soul/Spirit,
we are still uniquely ourselves, just as the cells in our body
are each differentiated. Our heart is not our liver, nor our lungs,
our spleen. If we were exactly the same in union, wed dissolve
into a blob. Fear not, the Magic didnt make you unique in order
to destroy your uniqueness. Rather it seeks to makes us so we fit
perfectly together. The Universe is a puzzle being put together. However,
it is a Magic Puzzle whose image continues to change. We might call
it a motion picture puzzle.
So how does one retain ones individuality while being conscious
of the whole? By becoming increasingly aware of ones unconscious
elements, which include not only all we have known and experienced
and forgotten, but also the Collective Unconsciousness of our genetic
line, our race, and humanity over all as well as the all of life.
In other words, we come into psychic and intuitive contact with everything
that seems separate or beyond us. Just as our eyes capture light from
around us and translate it into images of the dimensions in our immediate
vicinity so, too, do our feelings, via intuition and psychic perception,
pick up the signals from all things that are in our vicinity. And
all things are connected in the Universe.
Anything that is not connected in this Universe does not exist for
us. Also, Quantum Physics tells us that any two things that have ever
come into contact have an immediate psychic rapport no matter how
long or far the time or space (really the same thing) separating them.
Some folks refer to this extension of the Spirit through the Soul
as the Expansion of Consciousness.
This psychic harmony brings us into rapport with a wider range of
life and yet does not violate nor dissolve the essential unity of
our individual nature. And while many people believe that humans,
along with higher beings, such as angels, are the only ones who have
individual nature, we elves do not accept this idea. It is clear to
us that animals, while often having less opportunity to develop their
uniqueness, and while more powerfully directed by their drives, still
have personalities and individual natures. They are also unique beings,
just as no tree or plant is exactly the same although they continue
to conform to the limitations and variations of their species.
Ultimately, as we evolve we will each become totally unique; we will
become Singularities, while being ever more in harmony with the all
of life. However, true immortality will not come to us until we are
self sufficient, that is to say we will no longer need to consume
outside of ourselves to live but will generate the very energy
we survive upon. We will be complete symbiotic beings, feeding each
other with love as we live together in love forever.
following is another example of writing from this book, page 62-65,
from Part One:
What most people call consciousness is an awareness of their thoughts,
beliefs and ideas. In the animal kingdom, consciousness is an instinctual
awareness and lacks, for the most part, the beliefs, ideas and self-concepts
found among humans. In the human being, the idea driven consciousness
comes to fore but, as weve pointed out already, this is primarily
directed and motivated by ideas ruled by our passions and emotionally
connected ideas. We think ourselves to be free but really our
lives are controlled by these passions and beliefs.
When we are born into a particular life we come bearing the imprint
on our souls of our pervious experiences. Obviously, when we are reborn
we dont have the same body. So our bodies, as they currently
exist, clearly are not a part of our immortal self, although
they are composed of the energy that is, in itself, immortal.
We are mostly formed from Star-stuff or Stardust, and elves are particularly
aware of this fact. So when we come into a new life, our soul/spirit
gathers around it the available stardust/energy to form a new body.
Since this stardust also bears the imprint of its past, in the form
of a DNA coding directive, we also come into each life with a racial
consciousness, formed in what is often called the Collective Unconscious.
We also have a human consciousness, and bear the imprint of our evolution
through various forms from all our previous incarnations. To become
truly immortal beings, that is to say, immortal in the way that vampires
are seen as being immortal, having a permanent immortal physical body,
we need to integrate our consciousness with and merge with the consciousness
of the energy that temporarily composes us. Of course, elves are often
also seen as being Immortal, particularly in our more ephemeral forms,
or our ethereal or etheric bodies combined with our astral bodies.
In time our bodies will become more resilient, less physical, and
more like light, thus more ephemeral. The dimensions we will reside
within, the dimension of Elfin/Faerie will be similar to living in
a dream. We will have greater powers, such as the power to fly, and
the ability to do things that we can now only dream of doing. And
yet it will be every bit as real as a dream seems when we are in it,
or every bit as real as this illusionary world that we currently abide
Also, just as clearly when we pass from one body to another, we dont
carry our thoughts, feelings and beliefs with us, or our memories,
unless indeed we have obtained continuity of consciousness and have
born our mind through the death process, which, honestly, these particular
elves are nowhere near to achieving. Are you? If you are, you will
be able to tell because you will be able to remain aware throughout
the night as your body sleeps without losing consciousness. Sleep,
as we said, is the little death. It is the reflection in microcosm,
As Above/So Below, As Within/So Without, of the life death cycle.
For most individuals, the death experience and the assumption of a
new stardust body is like suffering from total amnesia. You dont
remember anything. You dont even know what you know. For instance,
in amnesia, you may know how to type or play a piano, but dont
you know that you know how to do it until you sit down at a typewriter,
or computer, or piano and suddenly find that typing or playing piano
comes automatically to you. So, too, in moving from one life to another,
we carry certain abilities with us. We dont necessarily know
that we know, rather we feel we were born with certain talents and
abilities, and indeed we were. Usually, we find we learn these things
very quickly and easily. These skills seem to come naturally to us.
Our feelings, not so much our emotions, but mostly our feelings, because
they are by their nature essentially unconscious, come easily through
the transitional state of death. We may not remember whom we loved
or liked or disliked, but if we encounter them again or someone like
them we immediately sense our attraction, or our repulsion. There
are certain individuals that we know immediately even though it seems
we have never met them previously. So until we are able to carry our
memories from life to life consciously, they are still born in our
soul, particularly those things that are most important to us, which
is love and relationship, as well as having an instinctual recognition
of and attraction to those with whom we have a karmic connection either
positive or negative.
We can see this fact reflected in our current life in our conscious
and unconscious. The basic consciousness is everything of which we
are currently aware. But we also have an unconscious which composes
everything of which we are not aware, which for most of us is far
vaster than our conscious awareness. Consider all the things we dont
know, and add to it all the things, events, facts, people, experiences
we have forgotten, which are stored in our brains but which, for most
of them, are lost to us except at certain times. So, too, are our
experiences stored in our soul, but only accessible under certain
profound circumstances, although occasionally brought to mind by our
encounters in the world, just as memories may be brought back into
consciousness by a particular, song, smell, or experience. Our soul
stores all our experiences and in that way is linked to the Akashic
record, which records all experiences of all beings. The Akashic record
is the library of the Soul of the Universe.
