Being A Magical Person In Your Community Is A Job
My two cents here comes from a friend that has now passed on.
Edward Cain taught me about sorcery, magic, and witchcraft and was also an incomplete quadriplegic. He had full tactile sense, but had no ability to move his body from the neck down. Anyway Edward had been in touch with his magical energies early in life, he was his spinal injury occurred at 12 years old. So he had taught himself to read and write with a stick in his mouth, and other very amazing things as a quad. But he amazed me more, that he had been doing psychic readings ( his mediums of choice being reading the crystal ball and psychic auras ) to earn a living since 13.
Ed ( for we were friends, less than mentor or student ) once said to me, when I was very worried about what I should do with my life, career, college etc.
These were his words to me, " All people have jobs that they are drawn to do, choose to do, get paid to do, and even are forced into doing. But the job you are born to do, will never stop being your job. Since I was born with the gift of sight, call it sorcery, witchcraft, soothsaying, or satanic powers from hell..."
Ed loved his theatrics.
"... it is what I do for a living. I am a worker employed by the magickal powers that be. You don't see Gandalf the wizard taking part time jobs as a bus boy, but he does do fireworks shows for hobbits on their birthdays. Wise people and magically gifted souls always have their fall back positions, but their job and career is to be that magical person for their community. Therefore there is no shame in taking material gain from it, as long as you understand that the 3 fold or 10 fold law, applies directly to your credit cards and bank accounts too. Should you be practicing tom fooolery rather than being a legitmate seer."
"Do not ever use psychic powers just to manipulate or steal from those that come for your help, it will burn you. But not using your powers to earn your keep and pay the bills, well even black magic know that is just stupid and evil. Don't say you practice magic and then tell me you can't get a job. Talk to the Goddess about your needs, hell pray to Satan if you want, but use magick or don't. Fence sitters are taking bread out of the mouths of talented witches and wizards every where. Love is the will, pay your toll at the door. Abrahadabra. Love is the Law."
I miss you Ed.
As always to everyone out there online...
Blessed be, wonderous magic, and lots of love to you and yours.
As the Yuletide is upon us. remember that love is the law. Blake4d
