the Major Powers:
SYMBOL: THE LINE
THE MAGICAL TOOL: WAND
This is the power of Creation and creativity. With this power one
can create one's own world, realm, eald, etc. Unlike the first power,
which is essentially effortless and accepting, this second power strives
to mold the world, or really a part of the world, by its own vision.
There is a danger here that one may attempt to compel their vision
upon others and force them to yield to ones will. This, however,
is a violation of the basic principles of elfin magic and a corruption
of this power, which functions not through force and coercion, but
by attraction and enthusiasm.
writers who create worlds so vivid that hordes of fans hunger to enter
into them give a good example of this power to us. Tolkiens
works stand as a testament to this power. This power is also true
of those who founded religions, kingdoms, fashion and art styles,
etc. However, if one proceeds as if their way is the only way, the
one true and right way to be, then they have lost their way and are
wandering toward the darkside.
The true power of creation stands as a unique and individual manifestation,
among other unique and individual forms and beings. It is a star among
a Universe of Stars. It is ever a pioneer, and if others follow the
trail it has blazed, it does not care, for it has already moved on.
Create your own Eald, dear elfin, and invite your co-creators to join
you in the weaving of a magic that makes a better world for all of
I summon forth the powers of Creation
I make my world anew by the power of my vision
Talents, skills, and powers come to me seeking expression
I send them forth to make the world more loving, kind, and beautiful
I send them forth to make life more exciting, adventurous, and fulfilling
I send them forth to express themselves perfectly
Great artists each in their chosen field.
I open myself to the powers of creativity
That I may express myself truly in my own way
Creating wonders of magic and beauty in my own style
Filled with energy and power I set forth
Renewed, and revived, and ready to give to the world
The treasures that I bear within me.
The powers of creation are mine
The world responds like clay
And in the course of time
We see the coming day
Awakens now renewed
Our efforts have been true
And the magic we have brewed
Will guide us on our way.
the Minor Powers:
SUIT OF CUPS
THE SYMBOL: THE HEART
THE MAGICAL TOOL: CHARM BRACELET
This is the root power of all relationships, whether it be family,
romantic, friendship, acquaintance, legal, business or any other.
They all come under the influence of this power. Being under the element/state
of water/liquidity, this power is very fluid in nature and extremely
adaptable, yet it retains its essential nature in its largest and
most microscopic forms. It is also very feeling oriented and its essence
is based upon feeling rather than mental or even spiritual attraction.
Thus it is linked to both intuition and instinct, but primarily to
the feeling of attraction or repulsion that draws us to or inclines
us to avoid certain individuals.
For any relationship you wish to develop, improve or from which you
wish to depart, this power can be of help. It is also a supplementary
power to all the other fluid powers. To invoke this power is to develop
your own ability in creating successful relationships, enhancing the
power of your personality, giving it weight and power.
The evocation of this power brings the personal touch and an inner
sense of connectedness to even the most formal associations. If one
feels they are faced with a mindless and callous bureaucracy, the
conjuration of this energy will arouse a sense of sympathy and relatedness
in those with whom one must interact, helping to bring the element
of the human or humane/elven into an otherwise cold and uncaring association.
It awakens the feeling in people, helps remind them that they are
not robots, but feeling human beings/spirits, which it to say spiritual
I treat all I meet with loving kindness
With gentle concern, with reassuring comfort
Each relationship bearing the potentiality for friendship
For romance, or for a delighted flirtation
Each an opportunity to spread love into the world
To make the world a better place
A more loving place
A place where love can prosper
In all its forms and variations.
I draw in the power of love
So I may see the potential for love in all situations and circumstances
So I may be able to love in all situations and circumstances
So love will fill my soul and exude from my body
As an aura of energy
Creating and atmosphere of love
Wherever I go.
Love comes to me today
Love comes in everyway
Love is the very source
Love is the way, the course
Love is the action that I take
Love is the way for its own sake
Love is the purpose
And the meaning, too
Love is the goal for all I do.
