I search the worlds within,the worlds within another world: The Otherworld, The Underworld and further still beyond. I search the realms and strange dimensions, the mists and the lakes some beyond reach. Spinning all the while Magick and dreams, of love and other lives, of sorrow and despair, of laughter floating; unseen, often felt and shared between tears and oceans, the hollow hills spirals of the fae where elven folk and creatures spin their web of songs and tales of truths beyond, above, below, alongside this world of humans where worlds exist and collide to merge the mysteries of place and time.
Our ancestors were fully aware of the duality of the Elven Folk and knew that although some could be helpful if treated with respect, others could be far more dangerous. However, all were capable of mischief and powerful magick which could be used for both good and bad.
There is mythology and folklore from all around the world of nature beings and tales of magick , of guardians of forests, lakes, sacred places, homes and gardens. These days there are many who believe the elven are beings of imagination and the stories only suitable only for children yet believe in the spirits of nature and other supernatural beings! These beings all belong to the otherworld of elven/ faerie and can if treated with respect be our guardians and helpers in our day to day lives.
The Elementals are the beings of nature and each belong to one of the elements as the name suggests. Most elven are able to shapeshift.
Many elementals are able to blend with their surroundings so that they are almost invisible, however, they will occasionally show themselves but are able to disappear in the blink of an eye. The elementals are also the guardians of the animals and plants so are able to communicate directly with them. Their magick is usually directed at the natural world but it is important to always respect nature and the guardians of nature as their natural magick can be very powerful and to anger them would be unwise. Sometimes they shapeshift into animal form to observe humans.
When you are open to the existence of the elven and have a desire to connect you may not realize it but you may have encountered them already on some level. Often as with all supernatural beings you get a feeling or change in the air, you may have seen flashes of movement from the corner of your eye or shadowy faces in plants and trees. Flickering lights, soft music or even tinkling of bells coming from an unexplained source
If you would like to connect with the elementals choose an in between time they are known to like times and places of in between such as twilight, dawn or midnight. In between places such as stairwells, gateways, streams and the sea shore are a few of the places favoured by elven folk. Be respectful, be open and use all your senses to see, hear and feel the elven and be sure to leave a gift such as a little honey, cream or wine!
