Ta'Shai, quite frankly scares me. I'm a pessimist so the thought of having my cards read and my future told scares the hell out of me. I just know she would say my aura was bad and that I was doomed, so no way.
Is it her magic that scares you or the possibility of what she might tell you about yourself and your future?
I'm curious because I have a friend who is walking the Red Road. Meaning that she is following the Native American spirit path. (interestingly enough she's jewish by birth!). She is one of the most open, accepting, spiritually aware people that I know. She has friends of all faiths and spiritualities and is open to all with good intent. Her beliefs are strong, her knowledge of her path is astounding. She hold workshops, seminars etc. all based around the Red Road and especially the womans nation. BUT she gets the complete cobbly wobblies when she's around witches.
She had an interesting and comlicated problem several months ago when she was holding a womans nation workshop in her home. One of the women attending had just come out of the broom closet, so to speak and was just starting to tell people she was a witch. Without going into detail, there was a giant conflict of spiritual energy when the witch was invited to cast the circle and call the corners for the workshop. My friend was so uncomfortable with the energy being cast that she was physically ill. Don't misunderstand, the witch casting the circle is a good woman. Her intent is strong and white, she's just inexperienced and (in my opinion) didn't have enough understanding to cast a complicated circle that included non-witches. Long story short (with many twists, turns and complications only other witches would really understand), the circle that was cast was never truly dismissed. For an entire week my friend and her husband lived in house where the 4 corners had been called but not dismissed. It wasn't pretty.
She called me on the 4th day (after a flower pot and 2 picture frames had launched themselves off the fireplace ledge) and asked my help. I had never known that she was freaked out by witches. She and I had always had a great and wonderful relationship. Heck, she stood up for me at my wedding! It turns out that I'm the only witch she's ever known that she didn't get the "cobbly wobblies" while around. Be it my energy, the way I practice...even she didn't really know. That's why she called me asking what to do. I listened and figured out what needed to be done, gave her instructions and talked her through it. In the end, all was fixed and her house is clean. *phew*
I guess I told you this story as an example of how I see that some people can be perfectly fine with an Alt that drinks blood, runs nekkid, hangs from hooks or stirs a cauldron, but would from some un-named reason be uncomfortable around someone who practices vundon. My question brazen, (I knew I'd get there eventually ) is, can you name why you wouldn't want to spend the weekend with Ta'Shai or is it more of a Lex's GUT kind of thing?
