Those who follow this blog will know that earlier this summer I did a working for the vow breaker. This working entailed three main points. The magico-religious dissolution of her marriage, offerings to the kindred to make amends for her breaking of the vows, and a cleansing to banish the evil spirit my guides showed to me that was about her. In nursing we are taught that whenever we do an intervention we must then return to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. What follows is my evaluation of the interventions used.
When I met the woman a few days after the ritual she went on for some length about how much better she immediately felt after the ritual. She used words such as “happier” “lighter” “free”. She was smiling and in good spirits. It was at this time I choose to reveal to her all of what had been shown to me in the way of the spider headed malicious spirit. I also explained my reasons for not telling her all I had known before this time. She indicated that she understood and appreciated my tact. I have not spoken to any others of the it except here on my blog.
Two weeks or so after the ritual the client went to places of business looking for a job, to replace the one she suddenly and unexpectedly lost, and in one day not only had in interview but was hired on the spot. This was a blessing but also prevented her from joining the community at our Lughnasadh ritual.
I recently had lunch with the client and she is still doing well. She is now looking for her own place to live with her son, and working hard on her spiritual self as well. This young lady has done more soul searching in the past two months than a lot of people do in their whole life. She has started dating the man with whom she had the affair and it is my sense that they are perhaps a very good match. At least for now they are happy and working to have a healthy relationship.
As it is with such things, I don’t know if I can ever know how much of her successes is due to the working we did. I do believe however that it was a very positive event and helped her in many ways.
