What is Elven Magic?


 "Elven Magic traditionally, both in reality and fiction, Fairy Tales and Faerie Lore,
has associated the elves with the form of magic called enchantment."

Magic is generally defined as the application of one’s will to create various effects or achieve one’s intentions. And surely Elven Magic would adhere to this definition as well. However, Elven Magic traditionally, both in reality and fiction, Fairy Tales and Faerie Lore, has associated the elves with the form of magic called enchantment (see The Keys to Elfin Enchantment for more on this most elven art).
     Enchantment seeks to fulfill its will especially through the enchanting or charming of the Universe and the individuals we desire to influence. It is not so much about compelling them to submit to our will but rather charming them into willingly fulfilling our desired intentions because they find us intriguing and wondrous and feel themselves benefited and fulfilled in aiding us and giving us what we desire. They seek to please us because we have inspired and pleased them, filled them with joy and helped bring meaning and purpose into their lives.
     Thus elven enchantment depends a great deal upon the maturity and development of the individual’s spirit, soul and personality. Most forms of magic, while certainly being benefited by having a mature magician performing the art, don’t actually require the magician to have a good spirit, a decent soul and especially not a pleasing personality. A strong spirit is certainly a great help but no soulfulness or very little is required from most magicians and they can have, as fiction informs us and as history attests, the most noxious, nefarious or downright cantankerous personalities. Elves, however, to truly develop our powers of enchantment need to awaken the divine within ours’elves for there is nothing more attractive to man, beast or spirit than the ecstatic nature of the Divine Magic.

"Enchantment is the subtlest of magics that flaunts itself while remaining practically invisible and exudes great power while using no force whatsoever."
— from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves




"When elves first awaken to the realization of who they really are, there is often a euphoria that sets in but this enchantment only ever lasts for a short while and then grounded once more the individual is faced with the fact that magic, even elfin magic, requires effort and a decision to go on."
—The Silver Elves
