Faerie Circle Gatherings
A Faerie Circle Gathering is an inspiring, playful event where participants have the opportunity to give their hearts wings and get in touch with their own "Inner Faerie," while opening to Infinite possibilities.
As we gather around a simple altar, ancient and new ceremonial rituals are performed including, but not limited to, calling in of the directions, passing of the sacred blessing cup, singing, chanting, breathing, movement and the passing of the talking stick. We begin to bridge the gap between "reality" and "fantasy" as we then take the Faerie Pledge and each choose a Faerie name. These activities are designed to open the heart and mind and bring awareness to the Divine Truth of our being.
The workshop includes lots of musical participation. Two to two and a half hour (or longer, if needed) presentation. Participants are encouraged to "dress Faerie" and to bring a special item to place on the altar and then take home. Both are optional.
The Faerie Pledge
My pledge is to the Faeries
To Peace and Harmony
And to the Global Vision
Uniting you and me
For Faeries’ love is joyous
They bring sweet energy
They touch our inner child
They live in you and me
Yes, I believe in magic
I can choose a Faerie name
My heart is full and open
As I play the Faerie game
For the blessings of the Faerie Realm
Reminding you and me
We can create a sacred sharing
For all the world to see

The Faerie Pledge is also available musically on Faeries Are Gathering
Accepting oneself as a Faerie is a journey of self-realization and discovery.
By choosing a Faerie name, each person feels and expresses her or his own personal connection to what is meaningful, life affirming and joyous. Your name is your soul vibration, and some of the names people have come up with have been wonderfully freeing and enlightening. Some examples include: Stargazer; Moonspinner; Faerie Athena of the Sacred Dance; The Faerie of Blessings; Harmony, Bringer of World Peace; Faerie Willow, Goddess of the Labyrinth; Faerie of the Healing Waters; Krystinia of Fey; and the list goes on and on and on. This is where you can declare your own unique union with the magical world of Faeries.
At a Faerie Gathering in California, one of the participants was having a challenge coming up with her Faerie name. She wanted me to name her. I encouraged her to look around and look inside to see and feel just what it is that brings her joy and loving feelings. It was so amazing to witness her consciously open to the creative flow and call forth her own name! It was a wonderful demonstration for the group as well. We are all connected to Source Energy and can consciously tap in anytime we choose.
About Faerie Elaine of the Silver Stream
I have been asked many times over the years about my Faerie connection, and I am happy to now share about this here on my website. A few years ago I wrote the following article that appeared in a few metaphysical newsletters and websites. Enjoy the ride.....
Faeries are Gathering
Yes, folks, this article is being written by a real, live, professional Faerie. In my Faerie life, I am known as Faerie Elaine of the Silver Stream, and I work with children and “grown ups” to open the doors of enchantment, vision and real magic to those who wish to greet the “Faerie within.”
As Elaine Silver, I have been a full time performing musician, songwriter and recording artist for many years, working in concert settings at festivals, art centers, churches, schools and other venues. Since the mid 1980s, I have been targeting my performances to metaphysical audience members and those with open hearts. In the late ‘80s, I began working with many children, and continued my quest to sing for and with people who love and affirm life and light.
In the early ‘90s in northern New Jersey, the Faeries came into my life in the most wonderful way. It started when the Faerie Sisters, Sweet Pea Faerie and Histabell were brought into my consciousness. They had been working together locally with children for a few years when through a dream of Histabell’s, the invisible Faeries began to impart inspiring information and transformational data to these two. After thousands of kids were brought into the world of Faeries by the Sisters, Sweet Pea and Histabell began to recognize that adults were also hungry to share in the experience, and many were subsequently initiated into the Faerie Realm. This is where I was drawn in and my life has never been the same since I officially became a Faerie.
Not long after that time, Histabell found another dream to fulfill and has since flown off to a far away place. It was then that Sweet Pea and I began working together as the Faerie Sisters, and I took on the name Faerie Elaine of the Silver Stream, sometimes adding "of Consciousness." (I had already established my music marketing name of Silver Stream Music and The Silver Stream of Consciousness.)
We made many public appearances, transformed lots of people into Faeries, gave Faerie Blessings, wrote a musical play and founded the Infinity Moon Circle. This is a monthly gathering that continues to meet on the new moon to celebrate the cycles of the Earth and to honor the sacredness within each of us. More recently, Sweet Pea’s Faerie activities have become restricted due to work and family obligations as the mother of three children.
The Faerie Movement is Alive and Well!
A “Faerie Movement” is alive and well and flourishing all over the world! By surrendering to the joys of believing in magic, you are invited to open your heart and mind, give your heart wings and take the Faerie Pledge, which acknowledges the divinity in ourselves and in each another. Our thoughts and words can and do make a difference, and this is a vehicle for each of us to take a stand for infinite possibility and goodness.
