Did I ever tell you of the time that I got lured into a "Wizard's Duel" with a Warlock?
Well, this is a true story.
About 15 years ago, I drove to Kuntztown, Pa to do a "Mini-Renaissance Faire".
I was going to do my Tarot card readings. I got up very early, packed my car, drove me, myself and I all the way there, unpacked my booth, set it up, got dressed in costuming and was "ready to read" at 10am.
Pretty good, huh? And I looked cute too :)
My booth was blue and white with pennants flying. I was fetching in a cream colored low cut lace gown with a cute and snug wee bodice. (Can't fit into either of them now, but I still have them :)
I was outgoing, kind and full of smiles and info to the passing faire goer. I got bites on my reads, and gave out some really good and fun help. In my heart, I was glad. All over sort of glad.
Across the way, there was also another reading booth. It was a dark booth, and there were 2 men in dark hoods and garb. They were giving "Dragon Readings". There was also a wench working with them as front person.
I waved across once or twice, but didn't get much of a response. I continued with my day, until I needed a break to walk around and stretch my legs. I stopped at the other card booth on my path past them. I was cordial, they were ....um....not.
I went on my way.
Later on that day, the wench that worked at that booth, came over to my booth and said, "Man I need to get out of that booth. They are miserable warlocks. And you are doing so well over here."
I then saw the one main guy approaching me. He said, "I challenge you to a duel".
I laughed. "A duel? You are joking, right?" Well, no, he wasn't.
So we faced off....he showed me how. 50 paces apart. Your magick arm outstretched towards your opponent. Then when the cue was to be given you directed your power towards the other.
And so we did. I looked at this guy, caught in his anger and hate, and I just gave LOVE. Lots and lots and lots of it. He, how'ere, directed a negative energy towards me. This went on and on. I was not tiring, howere, he started looking peckish. Until finally, the referee called it. "That's enough you two!".
I guessed I'd won. He sort of went away dejectedly and was so miserable that he didn't get any readings for the rest of the day. He probably lost money on the day.
I had a great day, made money and closed up shop early for the drive home.
This proves a point to me, that it IS good to be giving, loving, generous, spiritual, happy, independant, honest with others and trusting.
What people do with what they are given, is on them.
What we do comes back to us.
If that warlock had just opened up to receiving the good, instead of misconstruing the incoming power as negative...he would have been bolstered, edified, would have grown. Instead of mustering all his negativity and throwing it against a big soft squishy hug only to bounce off.
He was powerless to come out ahead, as is negativity in the face of love.
Instead of coming at me as competition for a fight for who's the best,....
he should've joined forces as an ally and made his circle bigger, instead of smaller.
The sad thing is?
He didn't learn a thing.
So, while it's easy to be hard (like the song says)
In the end.....
it's better to be SOFT.
I stand by it.
Now.....on to my 2nd topic of yet another "Wizard's Duel" Challenge.
I learned from the unfortunate man who challenged me before, that it's best if you give GOOD.
So, I am asking YOU to challenge YOU into changing your life.
I am sure that there are things about you, that you would really like to change and we are going to help each other (instead of FIGHT each other like the other guy wanted in his quest for my power....it didn't turn out to well for him, did it?) by focusing on A DREAM. Let's try the higher ground to
INVENT. RECREATE. EVOLVE.
It's what Wizards DO.
The first challenge is for you to make a committment, here for us all, and leave a comment on what you would like to change.
If you've done it on FB, that's great. What we need to do is to FOCUS on something singular, tho, to really make this a PRIORITY.
But Merlyn, what if I'm not sure what I want?
Well, that one I can answer, because that's exactly where I'm at. You see, I've been very successful so far in my life getting the things I set my heart for. Got them. Now....what?
Imagine what your "Perfect Day" would consist of? (without any limitations in your mind).
What would it look like?
Who would it be with?
What would you do?
Where would it be?
I believe that the answers to these questions would give you, a "microcosm" of what you feel you should be doing with your life, your time, your chance.
So just for today......
Think what your PERFECT DAY might look like.
