Inviting Trouble

 

When I was a young man of about 12 I fell out of my mother's faith. I tried talking to her about it, and was promptly silenced with the "I will disown you" threat. (She has since accepted a "don't ask don't tell" policy) So I turned to the only person I knew would listen to me. My friend's mother's partner. An older gentleman whom was always asking me what was wrong, that my Aura was all bent out of shape. I spent several hours talking with "Wallie" in which he told me many things that would change the way I molded my life. As well as spur my interest in the paranormal, as well as certain aspects of the occult.

A few years passed and I researched as many different religion/belief avenues as I could, when I came across a group of people calling themselves witches. They invited me to a ritual they were holding in the woods near the town we lived in, of course my interest peaked and I found myself in the woods at midnight on of all days Halloween, with a group of high school kids hanging around a camp fire.

The leader a "priest" of the "circle" called everyone to stand around the fire (except me, I wasn't "part of the circle") and began chanting, most of which I can no longer remember, but even at the time it -felt- like complete nonsense. After his big finish, every one stood in the circle staring up at the sky, I distinctly heard two voices, one on either side of me. A female voice said "what?" and "why there?" and a male voice saying "I" and then "interesting" the spacing of the statements was as if I was only catching parts of a conversation. I was extremely unnerved but had a sensation of calmness..."press" into me, like being held by an older sibling when you've had a nightmare. Then I felt a breeze pulling at me, it was an incessant tugging at my shirt sleeves and pant legs. It had not been very breezy a few moments prior.

I Left the group in the woods still staring at the sky, while heading home I felt the light pressure, or breeze pushing me forward. Within two months the "priest" had passed away from massive drug over dose, I personally don't believe the two to be connected.

Warlock is a term that has fallen out of favor a LONG time ago to reference a male practitioner of spell-craft. The term of choice is just witch, regardless of gender.

Thank you both, reneespring and BadJuuJuu.
See? That is exactly why I said I would not even begin to pretend to know the answer to that one. Appreciate you both coming forward and setting me straight!
Plus, it cuts my research time WAY dawn!
Wa-do.

I think all witches, male or female, are called witches. At least, in my neck of the woods we are all called the same 😊.

Whitebuffalo: You said: And, actually, a warlock IS a male witch. I could not begin to pretend to tell you the name or phrase given a witch "who has broken the covenant".
To be honest, I was unaware that there might be a different tag to them. Hmmm. Food for research.
Wa-do...
I have a few comments... What I have heard for many years from witches is that *warlock* is NOT the proper name for a male witch... Warlock is a name that DOES have to do (in this culture) with oathbreaking and deceiving... But different cultures and times use the word warlock differently.

I have been wanting to ask you for a long time, Whitebuffalo: what does *WA-DO* at the end of your posts mean?

That is wild. Thank you for that. In all of my time with experiences on this side of the Spiritual scale, I never encountered a teen aged priest. Kid must have really been dedicated there.
That would almost point to a connection with the drug overdose, if the mind would bend that way. There are those that believe the best way of communication is with numb-ers, designed to override our natural thought patterns.

Whitebuffalo: Thanks for the comment, Yes, a teenage priest, who also belived a (and anyone correct me if I'm wrong) Warlock, was a Male Witch,...where as if I'm not mistaken a Warlock is a "witch" who has broken the covenat...yea...thats not spelled right... But I think you maybe on to somthing with the subconscious, its a marvolous thing isn't it?. 😁

The priest was a teenager?
Huh. Interesting.
You know, our seeking paths is rather similar. I tried on a few different things before coming back to My Spirituality. Sometimes it TAKES that spooky Halloween night in a darkened wood to make one realise there is something just not right with that direction.
It DOES rather sound as if someone was urging you to head on home. Makes me wonder if while they were forming their circle, if subconsciously you were "following along" and created one for yourself. Perhaps as they were calling in the deities, you also did so subconsciously.
Well, whatever happened, SOMEONE had your back. Nice to know good things come out of the Unknown, is it not?
Wa-do.

Jitow, beliefs flip flopped for a little while. I had far to many questions not many answers, (still to many questions, but I've learned to relax and the answers will come as needed) but to your question. I stumbled into, and currently follow a traditional form of Celtic. By no way do I feel I know all of it. Nor have I even scratched the surface but when I look in the mirror and ask my self what I believe that is the answer that rings truest.

Hi kardagen, sounds like something was trying to get you out of there and knew what the future held for that group. Just curious. Where did your spiritual beliefs end up after that experience? Glad it had no long term ill effects.

Hi granny, the rest of the group fell apart after the leader passed. Last I knew only one actually made anything of them selves. I myself went my own way. And I think it was the far better choice.
Chopis, I wonder some times wheather or not I could have made a diffrence if I stayed, but more likly then not nothing would have changed.

kardagen: Yea, I think the only connection is that he, in a drug induced stupor, thought he was able to deal with something way bigger than he had imagined... What about the rest of the group?...Still in touch, or have you let them leave your life?...

The pressure pushing you, I think was someone telling you get the heck outta there!...

Good story, thanks 😊
