Origins of Ancient European Traditions Revealed in NEW 3rd EDITION of the classic Book of Elven-Faerie
The legacy brought forth by the ancient Mesopotamian world (and Egyptian for that matter) did not die with them or we would not have anything near to the world that we have today. Their influence remains true. One might believe (or prefer to believe) that since we no longer live under the same conditions and guises of our ancestors, that we have somehow been able to escape their Truth – that it could not longer have application for us. Such is clearly not the case, nor did things end entirely with the lore and sagas of the Sumerians and Babylonians and other desert dwellers in a forgotten world – no indeed…
An authentic, beautiful and uniquely complete Elvish Druidic Tradition revealed in the light of the mortal world… for the first time ever!
“The Book of Elven-Faerie actually restores the historical basis of the modern ‘New Age’ movement, resulting from one seeker’s pursuits into the origins of the Druids.“
“The Book of Elven-Faerie became the literal genesis of the modern ‘Mardukite’ movement when privately released by prolific visionary writer, Joshua Free, in 2006.“
“The first part of The Book of Elven-Faerie describes the history of elves and faeries, how they were created and eventually disappeared. The second part dives into the practice of the Elven-Faerie tradition, complete with rituals for both groups and solitary practitioners. The book concludes with a section on less formal practices including working on the astral plane, sacred trees, herbalism and forest magick, including use of the Ogham.“
Mesopotamia was only the beginning. As time and geography took its hold onto the ancient source traditions, it… evolved! If it can be said that this ancient stream is indeed our well-spring of civilization (examined very intensely in the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible), and if we are to try to seek the most complete “systems” that have been brought forth through time and space, there are no others that compare to both the beauty and current and functional revival relevance as the Druids. Druidism is just as misunderstood and just as often misrepresented as the mythos and magick of ancient Sumeria, Babylon and Egypt – and, as it turns out, is directly related via a “dragon lineage” that was seeded by a race that we can identify with as “Elves” or “Faerie” begun in ancient Sumeria and Eurasia and carried forth into the Western World by distinct tribes of Europe.
The Book of Elven-Faerie is a revolutionary and controversial compendium of lore and magic reveals many things including:
* How ancient traditions of Mesopotamia (Sumerians, Babylonians, etc.) evolved into mystical, mythical and societal systems of Western Europe.
* How the most arcane practices shaped the customs and beliefs of the Western World.
* How modern folk magic can be traced back through the evolution of human civilization as carried by Druidic Tribes, the Tuatha de Dannan and ancient Anunnaki.
The Book of Elven-Faerie reveals an entire exploration into the Elven Way, Celtic Faerie Tradition and Danubian Druidism is offered — such as never seen before. Drawing from hundreds of sources, a reconstructionist Elven-Faerie tradition and system paradigm is presented by critically acclaimed Mardukite Druid, Joshua Free, including two complete grimoires that bring the magic and enchantment of nature, the elemental world, astral plane and woodlands to life!
THE NATURAL ORDER OF ELVEN-FFAYRIE & THEIR GOVERNMENTS
The first thing to understand concerns the terminology of “elf” and “fairy.” These terms have nothing to do with size and are actually references to the color white (or light.) There are all types and varying sizes of Elven-Ffayrie. There are even spirits, almost appearing as little more than lights, reminiscent of the original Tinkerbell. These petite sprytes or “will o’ wisps” have been misunderstood as “pixie” (literally, “pict-sidhe” — the painted ones) a term now used to describe all tiny winged fey…
The wings are usually a trait exclusive to female Ffayrie, typically sprytes and sylphs. The small Creatures of Faerie are commonly gnomish or dwarvish and are larger than the ‘tiny fey.’ Although small this type tends to be muscular. The Sidhe and Sylvanus folk, who resemble Humans the most, are tall and slender. They are actually 5-8 feet tall, and are the beings usually encountered in the magickal tradition. So why are the Sidhe thought to be small or “wee folk?” It is possible that the “smallness” attribute reflected the unimportance factor impressed toward the Elven-Ffayrie increasingly through the Dark Ages (Elven Holocaust).
This research should reflect that it is not only unlucky, but inappropriate, to refer to the Creatures of Faerie as “little people.” Furthermore, the generalization as “fairy” is equally insulting to these beings. For this reason I reserve ‘Age of Faerie’ as the history of the ancient fair and fey folk as a whole, along with ‘Creatures of Faerie,’ used to indicate all those being who reside in an Astral Otherworld or ‘Faerieland.’ But ‘Faerieland’ is more appropriately the “Otherworld,” not even “Underworld.” In terms of the phrase “Elven-Ffayrie,” I use it as a way to distinguish gender, derived from its reference to the Sylvanus folk, with female Ffayrie Sylphs and male Sylves (Elves).
When addressing these folk in magick or meditation, make no generalizations. Each type has a name, so focus clearly on the energy current you wish to make contact with. Also, each personification or manifestation of a general current has a name, and so it is wise to find out the names of these entities and the manner in which they would prefer you to get in contact with them, or some “key.” Unicorns and Dragons come to mind as two ‘Creatures of Faerie’ that you would not call “fairies.” By definition, there are many incredible Otherworld beings that exist beyond Human perception.
The Elven-Ffayrie Government is a monarchy, but that is not necessarily the best way to describe their rule because Humans have often used this system of government as a means to set up dictatorships. It is not abused by the Elves. It is a monarchy because it has a King and Queen and a royal court. The King and Queen sit on thrones of crystalline light — or darkness in the case of the Unseelie Court. There are actually two courts now, split by the decision to leave the Humans to the surface world.
The ‘Seelie Court’ is called such meaning ‘blessed’ or ‘blest,’ and they are the Shinning Ones who descended from the Tuatha D’Anu. These figures remain in a timeless dimension even today. Celtic Mythology refers to the Seelie Court as the ‘Trooping Elves,’ who are best seen making their nomadic moves or ‘rades’ once each quarter of the Solar Year (Cor Anar). The purpose of this practice is to uphold a tradition and also because the Elven-Ffayrie are simply restless by nature as a result of the Human presence and its effect on their lives. It is also possible that the genetic memory of constant flight, long travel periods, and using the trees for days on end as watchtowers, have left the Elven-Ffayrie a bit edgy.
The Seelie (‘blessed’) and Unseelie (‘unblessed’) Courts are virtually identical except that one reigns in light and the other in darkness. The cultural development and social progression of the two kingdoms emerged separate but the same. The main separation between them is split over the matter of Humans. The Unseelie Court are more commonly known as ‘Dark Elves,’ because they brood in the dark crystal caverns and chambers of the Subterranean Kingdom. They are bitter against Humans and do not share in the belief in aiding Humans in their transition to the Otherworld, or in the Elven-Ffayrie use of Human Simulacra as vehicles to experience the surface world — through 10% of Eurasian-Aeuropeans still able to contain such a “spirit”…
