It happened again. I was simply playing cards and a woman came up to me and blasted me for practicing BLACK MAGIC. I was dumbfounded. Really, BLACK MAGIC. Heck I didn't even wear my scary witch cape; oh and darn I forgot my black cat and my hairy wart.
For years and years I have kept my 'ability' hidden from our community. If I do readings, the minimum distance has always been one to two hours away from home. Most of my family has no idea that I know and see things. My Parents are aware, as are my Siblings, my Husband and my Children. In fact, my youngest Daughter takes great pride in telling people what I do. My Aunts, Uncles and Cousins have no knowledge about my gift; they are very religious and I would be in their eyes a spawn of the devil or a witch.
The woman proclaimed to a room full of approximately 40 people that (in her opinion) I worship the devil. How did she become aware of my ability? It was a simple question asked from a friend that spawned her curiosity. I simply smiled at the woman, now feeling more secure in my world. Then I sent Angels to work with the woman and to send her on her way.
It worked within minutes of the woman pointing her finger in my face; she had forgotten what she was ranting about and went on her way. I thanked Angel Michael for protecting me and surrounding me with His shield.
It was like the entire room forgot about the outburst just as quickly as it had started. I smiled again. At the end of the evening the woman cheered me a friendly 'goodbye'.
Ten years ago I would have run........ and probably cried. Now I know who I am and I am proud of my abilities.
Can I do magic ? I WISH! Like BeWitched, I'd wiggle my nose and have my house cleaned! Now that would save me a lot of money, time and produce less arguments with my Children and Husband.
Black magic ?! It's not like I can go around turning people into frogs, or frogs into a Prince. Wouldn't that be nice - P O O F - you're a frog today. Not very nice thing to do, but maybe the woman thought that I could steal the minds of people and make them do silly things. WHO KNOWS.
I am me. I have an A B I L I T Y ! An ability that I feel all of us are born with. An ability that some people can use to keep the communication lines open to know, to hear, to see and to feel things. Each persons abilities is dependent on the individual and their openness to their gift.
You hear it all the time; "I knew I shouldn't have done that" or "I should have listened to my gut feeling" and "I had a bad feeling all day long". Ummm, does that fit into the BLACK MAGIC category ? Well, NO.
Now because I do readings for various people the WITCH HUNT is on. Well game on.
I am not going to hide this gift anymore. This is who I am, like it or leave it. So if my blog goes missing or you see a picture of me hanging in the tree, it's game off.
I will not to be going to the woman's house and pack a little magic spell, or get into her mind. But I can guarantee I will have fun with this...... (ok, evil little giggle happening in my head. Each week when I play Euchre with the woman I will elude that I know exactly what cards she has in her hand...... and I'll throw her a wink.
I think maybe I just might have a great time after all.
People are silly; some of them they think that I think about them all day long and about what is going on in their lives....... and they call me for an update. I think some people wouldn't get out of bed if I told them not to.
This is common sense. It is a glimpse into the future of what may be coming your way. You have total control of your life. You can choose to ignore what I see and if something in your life needs to change or be addressed you have the heads up. Its just like when the government leaks a document, you have the knowledge. You can either leave things be or make a change. What are you going to do?
Most people are afraid of the future.
'The strength inside me is greater than the fear of the future before me.'
The great thing is that sometimes I am able to look ahead and calm someones fear. Is everything that I see positive, of course not. Can we change everything in the future. The answer is NO. Not everything down the road can be changed but; if we know maybe what is coming, we can prepare and get ready.
Recently I did a reading for a lovely lady, I asked if she had been to a doctor lately. I felt she needed to have her breast looked at. She knew she has breast cancer. Again I asked if she had been to a doctor. She said no. She knows. She felt the lump and her breast is dis-coloured; she claimed its cancer. She calmly announced that she was ready to go. She felt that her job was done here; but 'thanks for noticing and caring'.
That was a first time experience for me. But it is her life, her choice and her road. Not all of us could walk that path. Could she alter her path? Absolutely. Did she want to. NO. My job is to relay the information that comes to me. I am not to process it, I don't own it, and I am not to tell people what to do.
Well, the town had better get ready for me. I am opening the doors, putting out the shingle and doing readings here. My invisible cloak is gone, I am getting stronger and I believe in myself and in my gift. There will be no scary cloak, no black cat and I will reserve the frog option for a couple of weeks (I still think that could be fun).
Look for me hanging in the trees, but only on a swing watching for the fairies.
