If you’ve got your hands on the December issue of Soul & Spirit, you’ll have read our three-page feature on the magical elves of Iceland and their mysterious powers. Why not try these steps to summon your own elven friends?
1 Perform an elf spell
An Icelandic love spell perform with a red stone or crystal of your choice can help invite the mystical people into your lives. Simply follow the below steps and hey presto!
- Visit a place where elves are thought to dwell, such as a forest, river or rocky area.
- Place red flowers, a red satin garment and a ring with a red stone beside your chosen area and say: “Alfar I bring thee gifts rare and good, All for you to please, Should they do so, I thee entreat, Bring me new love strong and fleet, Let him/her be good and true as my gifts have been to you.”
- Bow before leaving the spot, as the love spell is now complete.
2 Create a shrine
Elves will appreciate an earthly altar, so set up base somewhere that they inhabit, such as at the bottom of a tree stump. Place offerings around your chosen shrine area, such as flowers, fruits, nuts, baked treats and visualise their prescence. If there are any nearby, they will make themselves known!
3 Dancing under moonlight
Often, elves will be found dancing in meadows, in a ring-like formation. You can see where they have been dancing if you look and see a circular discolouration in the grass. But if you are passing through a forest during moonlight and stumble upon a group of elves – look away! They don’t like to be interrupted and their dance will actually enrapture humans.
