Today’s post comes from the comments section of an earlier post called Magickal Self Defense and One of Those Days. There are currently 27 comments on that post, so this lengthy exchange only represents part of the discussion. Dawn raised a very interesting, complex question, though, and one I find relevant to the current state of our world. In particular, Dawn asked about using an energetic technique that I call “the boomerang” and that Sky, a commenter who later chimed in calls “Return to Sender.” Since I knew this would become a controversial topic, I sent my initial response to a friend asking if he thought I should let it lurk in the comments section or bring it to the light of day as a post. His response:
Meanwhile, during my email exchange with my friend, commenter Sky shared her insights and powerful story, and Dawn ended up reposting the original article just to highlight the comments section — confirmation that more people find this information valuable enough to upgrade into a post. My intention is not to tell anyone what to do or how to feel, but rather to encourage people to consider what “love” means to them and also ask the questions, “Where do love and courage intersect?” “How far does my love extend?” and “What kinds of responsibilities does unconditional love involve?” Obviously, I have my own very strong opinions on this topic, but each person must decide for themselves.
Got a question for you about this Laura. Someone who felt a possible personal threat, could they use the techniques above. I didnt see why not. I was having a discussion about this and someone suggested that this would be the wrong way to handle a personal threat doing the boomerang thing. They were very adamant about that. They suggested having the energy that was being sent by the threatening person transmuted into love and sent back to the person threatening. I get the transmuting into love. What I don’t agree with is the sending it back to the person in that form. I’ve used that technique in the past and it totally escalated the situation. The Threatening person does not take kindly to such energy. Just curious.
