Mr E on Egg Divination


Here’s a fun little conversation I had with Mr E on May 1st about the elven tradition of using an egg as a divination tool. I hope you enjoy it!–

NL: So, egg divination…

MR E: It’s a little thing we do, you know and it can be done on May Day or any day you want to know what the future holds. The egg represents new birth and whatever is coming into the future is inside that egg because it is being born, you see? So that’s why it is called egg divination…

NL: I see, that’s pretty interesting…can you tell us how you do it?

MR E: Well, first you get yourself a pot of water and you boil it.  Once you have a good, rolling boil, you take an egg, crack it, and you drop it into the water.

NL: Can you show us how to do this?

MR E: Sure, get me an egg and boil me up some water…

(We used a medium sized pan and filled it 2/3 full with water. After the water was boiling, he took an egg, cracked it against the rim of the pan, said “What will our future be?”  Right after that, he dropped the egg–just the yolk and white, not the shell–into the water)

NL: Oh, so you’re not being careful with the egg then…

MR E: Oh, no, no, no, you don’t want to be careful, because if you’re careful, it’s going to be nice and neat and you don’t want that. Just crack it, drop it in there and watch what forms.

NL: And then, do you turn off the heat so you can actually see what’s there?

MR E: Yes

NL: All right, so now you look at it and…

MR E: You look, and you see what’s there.

NL: So…what do you see in there?

MR E: Well, you see the little things bubbling up and  you will see your egg forming into different shapes. Then, you will look for things that you recognize and have meaning. For example, if you see a bird, that could mean flight or travel…

NL: I see, it’s kind of like reading tea leaves.

MR E: Yes, it’s like tea leaves only with an egg, pretty much only you get to eat the egg afterward!

NL: No wonder you like this so much…

MR E: Oh! Look at that! Do you see that? There are two people together – they’re getting married!

NL: Yes, I see that…

MR E: There’s a marriage in the future.

NL: Your future?

MR E: No…not mine!

NL: (Laughing) Are you sure? Hey, you’re the one that cracked the egg – it’s got to be your future!

MR E: No, no, no, not mine. .. OK, there’s a man and wife so let’s see what else there is…

NL: Oh wow, look…there’s a horse’s head, see it? (If you look carefully, you can see it in the photo below.)

MR E: Oh yes, I see it! (That has significance to someone who was present and he spoke about it’s meaning to them.)

MR E: hmmm, I want to move the pan around so I can see it better…

(He turns the pan around in a circular motion to change the formations a little bit)   There’s a dragon! See it?

(He continued to point out things he saw and their significance to those who were present for quite a while.)

NL: So, what period of time does this cover in general?
Six months? A year?

MR E: Six months to a year…let’s see, what else do I see in here…I love egg divination, don’t you?

NL: Yes, I never thought we would be able to see so many things that we would recognize in there, it’s fascinating. Hey! I see a little gnome head there..

MR E: Yes, I see, in the corner here – (laughing) that’s probably me, I look just like that, you know!

(For the record, he doesn’t look anything like a gnome!)

Who is Mr E? He is the main spokesperson for the Elves of Fyn. The best way to get to know him is to listen to his many audio clips and read a couple of his interviews.

    @fairydust – lol, you’re welcome! If you try it, please let us know how it goes.

    @Beibhinn – Mr E swears it’s not him but I don’t know 🙂

    @Fae – We all have the ability to do magic so go for it! As for the picture, he would need to have his portrait painted.

    @dante – you are right! I’m working on another post and we should have one with Mr E next week too.

    what do fish mean? i saw little fishes and a baby dragon, a witch on half of the ying symbol, a lizard, but… it doesnt really mean anything to me…

  9. kitty July 14, 2010 at 4:40 am - Reply

    WAIT! could fish mean travel over water? and a dragon maybe travel through air? but i dunno about the witch or the yin symbol… or the lizard.
    It sort of makes sense, i might be moving to china soon… and that requires travel over water through the..air! 😀 WOW! this is so cooL! that makes sense! but… wait.. the witch…hmmm the yin stands for love but what about the witch!? and the lizard? WAIT maybe the witch signifies me and the reason only half of the yin yang symbol (the yin part) appeared is because ill find the “yang” side or someone ill love in china?
    LOL i feel like an idiot. am i doing this right?
    the lizard could mean travel over land. and i feel like the order is important.. so the fish,dragon, witch an symbol,then the traveling over china after finding the my “yang” of my yin yang. :/ In other words my soul mate :I

    Did i do that right?
    Thats kind of freaky.

    Its odd that the symbols appeared in pairs that make sense.

  11. kitty July 14, 2010 at 5:04 am - Reply

    but… :/ my mom decided moving to china wasnt an option so.. why is it showing up?!

  12. Alice July 16, 2010 at 3:44 pm - Reply

    Mr. E has a sense of humor =) But does he seriously think he looks like a gnome? That would be kinda funny too. With the egg divitionation can it predic stuff that can happen in a week? or does the stuff happen with in the time period in betweeen the 6months and 1year?

  13. Alice July 16, 2010 at 3:48 pm - Reply

    oh and I see a swan in the part of the egg with the yolk in the picture you posted. What wuld the swan mean in that prediction?

    Hi, Andi
    about the chant I saw this one on the website. You just need to be outside in a meditation like state with your focus all around you to catch anything. Then you say Good fairy folk, wild and free Beyond the veil, please let me see. You also need some fairy belief in you.[not sure if it works I haven’t had time to try yet]

    Hi Natalie,

    I tried the egg divination but my egg doesn’t look like yours and mr e’s the yolk didn’t even cook it still is raw. I am very confused and don’t know if it did right. Is the egg supposed to be cooked. Please help! I can send a picture if you would like.

    Hey Natalie, Mr E and everyone else on RF just want to say thank you for a amazing site. I came across this site about a week ago, since then Iv been reading it everyday. I absolutely believe in faeries and would love to meet some someday. I live all the way in Cape Town South Africa and would love to ask Mr E a few questions about fae in my part of the world. Where would I post those questions
    P.s sorry for going off topic

      Hi there, Sorry for the delayed answer. You can post like you did here and I will see it. We are busy working on our book so it may take a little, hopefully not too much, until we answer. Thanks for your wonderful comments! We appreciate it!
