Elf Magic Mail: Book 1, The Original Letters of
The Elf Queen’s Daughters
With Commentary by The Silver Elves

In 1974, a pair of sisters—Arwen and Elanor—calling thems’elves the Elf Queen’s Daughters (EQD) emerged upon the Pagan/Wiccan scene. They wrote fascinating esoteric letters of elven lore and philosophy that, when they really got going, were sent out in groups of three every week. Within months of their first publication, many other kindred joined the sisters and established vortexes around the U.S. (and some outside of the US) where those interested, who had heard the Call, could write to awakened Elves.

Among these vortexes was the Elves of the Southern Woodlands in Carbondale, Illinois, established by Zardoa who would, some years later after the sisters ceased writing them, take on the Dharma of creating the elf letters, first in Florida under the name the Sylvan Elves and later in California as the Silver Elves. Silver Flame, his faithful sister-lover companion, soon joined him and they’ve been pursuing the Dharma ever since.

This book is the first volume containing the original letters of the EQD —a Frasority of Elves and were contributed by the founders of the EQD, Arwen and Elanor, and the commentaries on each letter are written by the Silver Elves. We know you will enjoy reading these magical letters as much as we do and find the path of the Elven Way beautiful and enchanting.

This book is dedicated to Arwen and Elanor,
Founders of the Elf Queen's Daughters,
and to all our sisters of the EQD.

Arwen and Elanor, founders of The Elf Queen's Daughters, have enjoyed a life enriched by their continued efforts in communal, collaborative, cooperative works of art forms including music, writing, and film-making. These days, Arwen (Susie) and Elanor write, direct, and produce independent full-length feature films as The La Honda Film company. La Honda Films has produced two full-length films: "Buffalo Hearts" (now available on both Netflix and Amazon) and their newest film release, "California Tango". They also have a number of films in the works including: "The Sorcerer", "Pacal Voltan", and "The Aenid". For more information on their films, enjoy visiting their production website at: lahondafilms.com.

 

We thank you, dear H M J Van Geel for your review on Amazon:

“This book is a document of wisdom and insight in all things magical, mystic and Elvish. And it is a document of time, the 70-ties, and now, these days, where ever more people relate to Otherkin. Thoughts taken from long traditions of wisdom, but also of all day's experiences, as well as from pop songs, put down in letters for everyone to enjoy and learn from. The Elf Queens Daughters created them, and the Silver Elves put them in their justified time frame and add helpful, loving comments. A joy, a joy, a joy...”

Sample writing from "Elf Magic Mail", pages 226-230, transcribed from original letters in 1970s:

"Title: The Primordial Egg

THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MATTERS, SISTERS …. to hold opinions about, and ten thousand more to express our attitudes about, and more and more to ponder about in the future as well as millions of lost opinions and view-points to recollect and dwell upon relating to our pasts. They weave about us, and we learn to call them ourselves. Astute politicians and the genius-executives that manipulate most of what we once held sacred wield mental power over the people of our disenchanted America that dwarfs the physical power once held by Kings and emotional power held by their courtesans.

It is foolish to believe that you’ve escaped enculturation. It is even more foolish to seriously attempt to do any thing about it. We are programmed sisters, and almost all of us can only re-program ourselves with bizarre “programming” seemingly our own, yet mostly “borrowed” from India or China or even Romantic-Western-America. It appears to the elven sisters, that it’s only the seriousness that really endangers both our security and our freedom. If we can singularly and mutually “face” the utter ridiculousness of our real predicament and almost eternal bondage to the illusions so artfully created for endless distraction, we may begin the long and perilous journey into and out-of fear.

And yet, sisters, we pass through normal and elven America and find so very much opinion about everything imaginable. The warm smiles are what counts, sisters; it is the elven smile that makes for a new day, and the elven chatter as well as the elven letters we all have grown to love are not a real part of our mutual liberation. Only a real human smile has the magic and true enchantment necessary to attack with love (in elven style) the almost ageless human preoccupation with deception. Would that people only attempted to deceive folk other than themselves.

We find sisters everywhere that would learn the magic. They find their elven natures to be more than just “surface” qualities; they feel they’ve found something recognizable in their real kinship with the elven sisterhood. We pray and call upon She Who Dreams to guide them past all of this and into and out-of what men call real. There is no substitute for self knowledge. So very few spend the time to find out who they really are. The unseen realms of mind and reality are so very devastating to those who know so little about themselves, their motives, their sexual needs and desires, the “nitty-gritty” stuff that wizzards [sic] expose to the light of day on only one or two days in a single year. And Alchemy, and astrology, and all the “heavy “ stuff, what is it all about, beloved .. what is it all about?

Let us firstly make arrangements for our mutual evolution and growth from a disenchanted folk alienated primarily from ourselves .. into a real people who not only know themselves but know themselves relative to their real environment.
It’s the Space that Counts"

Picture of actually letter from which the above is transcribed, on page 227:


COMMENTARY BY THE SILVER ELVES on page 230:

"Here the sisters make very clear that our true elven magic is not ceremonial magic or the waving of wands, nor even attempts to manipulate the world but the magic of a simple smile, a bit of kindness in a world that very much needs it. This goes along with Tolkien’s idea, as expressed in his article On Fairy-Stories found in Tree and Leaf, that faerie magic is not the labored magic of worldly magicians. While this magic may be less demonstrative and flashy than the magic of movies and books, it is far more powerful really for all its subtlety and far more enduring. It helped change our lives and endures still in the hearts of these elves."
