Elves, Fairies and The Dark ARTS
A summary by joseph martín:
Throughout the aeons of time and from within many cultures and civilisations, there have been very few who have mastered the techniques of the Occult secrets of the Dark Arts.
Many more have dappled with these Arts only to have found themselves in great danger on a physical, emotional and mental level; some have even died. Their sutratmic life-thread cut or snapped because the power of the unknown and unseen was too powerful and too overwhelming for their limiting human bodies to cope.
Although all have a latent potential to walk the right or left-handed path of the magical Arts, only a handful is ‘chosen’. I use the word chosen lightly in the context of this article, but to be chosen or to choose the path to the knowledge and practise of the magical Arts is long, arduous, difficult and at times dangerous.
Disciples (ones who serve) of the Magical Arts, have many tasks to complete and many lessons to learn; all need to be done with strict obedience without ever questioning ‘why’; the reasons themselves all explained within the degrees of discipleship. These degrees of discipleship, these expansions of consciousness, are termed ‘Initiations’ – Spiritual Initiations. Each person who chooses or is chosen to complete the Initiations does so in a way that takes over every sinew or aspect of their life – every breath, thought and action. Yet by doing so, they become completely fulfilled physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in ways that they never imagined. They are following the ‘Antahkarana’ or the Return path to Source – their Monad. They (the disciples) after several Initiations can become viewed as ‘Masters of the Magical Arts’ and members of the ‘Brotherhood of Light or White Magic’.
Let us contemplate first what is meant by the word ‘Magic’. It may be that the word ‘Magic’ originates or is borrowed from the Greek Magos (a magician) which further lends itself to those equivalent words such as authority, wisdom, superiority, majesty, the Magi and master.
The Theosophist, Helena Blavatsky, described the purpose and meaning of Magic in her work – Isis Unveiled:
Magic is a divine science which leads to a participation in the attributes of Divinity itself.
Magic is based on the inner powers of man’s soul.
Magic is the sum total of man’s knowledge.
Blavatsky went on to describe the Magical Arts as:
All Magical operations consist in freeing oneself from the coils of the Ancient Serpent.
The object of the art of Magic is the perfection of man.
The Magical Arts are really the mechanisms and practices that allow those who have successfully traversed the Antahkarana or Rainbow Bridge back home to their Monad and use their Initiatory experiences for the benefit of others or for their own shadowy, selfish desires.
Those who have successfully accomplished (or partially completed) the return journey Home may decide to follow the path of the White magician or that of the Dark, Black magician.
The so-called Left hand path of the Dark Arts can lead the Dark or Black magician down an avenue where he can literally ‘drown’ in his own experiences of the manifested forces of nature. He can be forever affected by their shadowy presence and literally and metaphorically be mentally ignited until severe harm or sometimes death occurs. In retrospect, the White magician is aware of the necessary mantrams and rituals needed to both balance and negate any of these effects.
Calling upon elves and fairies either through Black or White magic, is in essence, calling upon the integration of the forces of man’s own soul and the forces of nature, at the same time. When this is done, a direct link exists between the two forces and a plethora of lower elementals flow with superfluidic energy between the two, in a three-dimensional lemniscate (figure of eight) manner – a microscopic, atomic chain reaction has begun.
Those who summon elves and fairies walk an extremely thin line and it can be difficult for others to distinguish between the two types of magician. The motives and methods of the left-hand, dark magician and that of the white magician help to differentiate between the two.
The Black magician works alone and from a selfish perspective; he tries to manifest and romanticise those lower elemental forces of nature to become his servants. He works through deception and seduction and through an involutionary path of no return. He works especially out of the throat chakra and is very good at persuading others that he comes from a right-hand path. He is very rarely, if at all, able to work from a higher mental standpoint and is not aware or able to fully follow the Path of Return or evolution. He is, at times, desperate to manifest material things such as money and wealth to fulfil his reckless and forlorn quest for power. Although Black magicians would seem to court no superiors, they are however, blissfully and ignorantly unaware that their unconscious minds are subject to the powers of higher, shadowy forces.
The White magicians of the right-hand path work with the forces of elves and fairies, the lower elementals, with Divine Love. They work in co-operation with those devas who control the elf and fairy elementals for the good of the group purpose, higher soul and higher consciousness. The magicians of the right-hand path are selfless in their role and always work from the heart centre and energy from within the Sun. They work from the higher mental planes (levels) of love and do not need to covet money or material wealth. The White magicians are subject to higher forces from the Brotherhood of Light, the Ascended Masters and the planetary Logos and Solar System Logos (great devic beings who look after our planet and Solar System).
Disappointment or even disaster can occur for the Dark magician in calling forth the lower elementals of elves and fairies. If the magician is not of clean mind and body, has not a strong mental protection and acts with unreasonable and impure thought, then he can fall foul with theses forces of nature in several ways.
The three-dimensional, lemniscate connection between man and nature can lead to a destruction of his emotional and mental bodies, which in turn can further set back his soul development through different lifetimes. The Dark magician’s motive of greed to create and acquire power will then pass from his chakra energies and third eye through a power centre (where all the energies mix and match) to the elf or fairy and its third eye system. This way, the shadow energy from the Dark magician will now flow through the by now Dark elf or fairy, in a figure of eight manner.
By embarking on a lemniscate relationship with the lower elementals, the energy of the Dark magician is freely shared with the energies and forces of nature. These lower elementals, the lower-ranked elves and fairies, now become heavily influenced and affected by the Dark magician’s lower bodies (self) – anger, greed, lust, envy and more egoic traits. It is the energy of the Dark magician that affects the functioning or the workings of the lower elemental forces of nature i.e. his lemniscate energy will be in ascendance relative to theirs; the lower elementals do not have egoic traits until the Dark magician shares his with them.
If a Dark magician is inexperienced or if an inquisitive and meddlesome person begins to tamper with lower elemental rituals, mantrams, functions etc; their simplistic curiosity may indeed attract the attentions of the shadow or Dark Masters of the Arts. At whatever level a Dark magician or innocent tampers with the Dark Arts, they may succumb to the Dark Masters and they may eventually separate from their Soul Personality, their Solar Angel (Guardian Angel) and eventually from their higher Monad. If a setback like this occurs, it may take epochs or many lifetimes for the Dark magician or innocent to remove themselves from the darkest depths of the Lower World.
Much danger awaits the inexperienced and naive. Yet for the White magician, the dangers in summoning the elf and fairy elemental forces of nature are also very real. These forces are not to be commanded via the ego but are to be worked with love through the magician’s personal aspects of physical purity, etheric freedom, astral stability and mental poise. Here too, the influence of the magician’s Solar Angel is not to be underestimated, at least up to the disciple’s 4th Initiation. Whilst the Dark magician endeavours to manipulate these forces, the power of a White Master magician can easily put out by friction, any dark physical, emotional or mental fires that have been created.
Both the White and Dark magician can only control or set forth instructions to the lower elemental elves and fairies if their third eye has been activated and opened.
No manifestations can occur if this has not yet happened.
It is this etheric third eye, the Eye of Shiva, that allows the magician to see clairvoyantly, but more importantly, it is this third eye that actually imparts the control to these elemental forces of nature.
When it come to the deliberation of the Magical Arts, then the magician, whether Black or White, soon discovers that there is a specific (hidden) protocol to follow.
Magicians of the White Arts aim to work from the mental plane of vibration down to that of the physical vibrational plane – Black magicians very rarely work from the higher vibrational planes or levels. Black magicians though (unless a Black Arts Master) all stick close to a pattern or routine that suits them well. They become very frustrated when they try to increase their energy from their lower physical plane to that of the higher mental plane. They are good at speaking untruths to those naive followers who would blindly, yet innocently, give them their support. This support however, always tends to fade away – another cause for more frustration
It is highly probable that a Dark magician may not become a Dark Master magician by direct route, it is only when a White Master magician succumbs can this occur. Because of the interactive lemniscate connection between the magician and the forces of nature, the magician should always be aware that what goes out always comes back. It is in these times of higher vibration that what goes out is coming back at an accelerated pace for people, places, countries, institutions, etc. Again the role of the Solar Angel is pivotal to both types of magician, except for that of a White Master magician who really controls his own destiny and power.
All magic originates from White magic and it is only the weak unconscious mind that allows the magician to tread the shadow path of greed, wealth and power. Inexperienced Dark magicians are forced to resort to summon elemental elves and fairies by a variety of methods but it is only a Dark Master who can assemble them via his third eye. The majority of mankind cannot yet be trusted with even a small amount of this magical knowledge, the voice of their impurities, selfishness and greed shines through too strong. People need to become more spiritual, gain more control over their unconscious ego and become more aware of the dangers involved in attracting and meddling with the unseen forces of nature. If the Dark magician manifests elemental elf and fairy forces with intent of doing harm or through an act of greed or negative power, then the Dark magician must also be aware that the energy of those deeds will flow at an accelerated pace and in a magnified way through him. If the departed elementals fail in their task, they give more power to the victim but remove an enormous amount of power from the Dark magician leaving him badly weakened. It is for these reasons that modern day Dark magicians rarely take the risks involved and if it were not for this knowledge then there would be probably many more attempts to injure or cause harm to others.
There is little protection for him depending on the circumstances involved; his Solar Angel may stand back and the elves and fairies summoned may just be constructed of the two most dangerous elemental forces, that of air and fire. Finally, if his third eye is not fully functioning, the Dark magician has little or no direction and the elves and fairies will muster in a random, haphazard and indiscriminate manner, not even adhering to the wishes of the magician himself. The Dark magician though desires some sort of equalizing force so that even his wishes can be fulfilled in this lemniscate connection between him and nature.
When the elves, fairies and other nature spirits have completed their work, the Dark magician then needs to instigate some final outcome; to do this he needs to pursue certain rituals and symbolisms to keep himself safe. Magicians of whatever type need to follow basic safety precautions to remove themselves from potential dangers or even from death itself.
There are many ways of protecting oneself from the Dark Arts. Calling in protection from a higher, loving source is a great start and of course there are many books and websites available with other great techniques. An attack from a Black or Dark magician arrives with a different vibration and can have different consequences and effects such as actual physical pain. If you believe you have been the victim of such an attack, especially having pain in and around the kidney area, then send as much immediate love to the pain and to its source – this should help dilute the effect. Call in other higher guides and Ascended Masters to cancel out the effect at source and, over a reasonable period of time, the attack should disperse; use your own methods if they prove better. If the attack is still forthcoming, call upon a White magician who should be able to cancel the effects and disperse any future pain – this instruction also applies to buildings and land.
A general rule of thumb is to stay well clear of anyone who dapples in the magical Arts; people – Disciples – are called to this state of being for a good reason. Naively tampering with the magical Arts, especially the Dark Arts, is just not a good enough reason as to why you should put yourself and more importantly others, in danger with the low, devic, involutionary elementals of nature.
The Hollywood representation and the real thing are about as far apart as we are from the moon –when in doubt always seek advice.
