“Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”
In grade school, children are taught to SPELLing involves combining alphabets into a correct sequence in order to form words. Those words are brought together to form legible and cohesive sentences that are presented in a written format or delivered verbally for a particular audience.
Even babies who can’t talk instinctively know that their actions – mainly crying – will “draw” someone to them to tend to their needs. Later in life, it becomes evident that it’s only in the midst of expressing one’s thoughts [needs/wants] that an energetic frequency becomes attached to them and thus casts a spell for producing a particular desired outcome. Once expressed, the words plus emotions produce an energetic frequency sensed/felt by the listener(s). Through delict, tone, and deflection, the listener is able to decipher if the speaker is angry, sad, mad, happy or indifferent. As a result, words expressed in a particular manner can and do influence those at which they are directed. That means that the impact of what’s said can become embedded into the one’s aura ultimately making its way into the cells of the listener’s physical body remaining there only to return later as sicknesses or illnesses if not eventually dealt with on a spiritual and emotional level.
Piggybacking off of the last Good & Evil Intentions post entitled “Beware Narcissists are Near…”, I used popular movie The Wizard of Oz as an example of characters that teach us through the duality of good and evil. In a nutshell, it “chronicles the adventures of a young farm girl named Dorothy… after she and her pet dog Toto are swept away from their Kansas home in a cyclone.” (Source)
The process involved Dorothy’s house being ripped from the world in which we know only to reappear in a magical land called Oz. Unfortunately, it came to a rest on top of the Wicked Witch of the East, a middle-aged malevolent woman (whose name in the book by the same name is Evanora), killing her instantly. Her death wasn’t a bad thing as it brought great joy and some much-needed freedom to the Munchkins of Munchkin Country as they had forever been her slaves.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Now soon after her arrival, Dorothy encounters Glinda the Good Witch of the North, who upon meeting her doesn’t bother to introduce herself but instead asked Dorothy a very important question: “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?” Now, why on Earth did she asked her such?
Before I answer, in my previous post I shared we all possess the ability to operate from a state of love or hate, good or evil. J.K. Rowling explained it best: “We’ve all got both light [goodness] and dark [evilness] inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on,” from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Of course, Dorothy isn’t about to identify as either a good or a bad witch that doesn’t change the fact that her house fell on and killed an existing bad witch, which meant she must have intentionally used her thoughts, words, and actions to produce such results. (In other words, she must have knowingly or unknowingly cast a spell for bringing about the demise of anyone who could or would attempt to imprison her or anyone connected to her. #justsaying) That’s why Glinda appeared to give the Munchkins comfort in case she too was a good witch. Her actions – whether she knew it or not – gave the assumption that she might be a good witch too because no one had successfully taken out a wicked witch – unless they too were either just as evil or were a witch of great [positive] influence.
Off to See the Wizard
As Dorothy is being given the grand tour by Glinda and the Munchkins soon after her arrival, she would soon meet evil in the flesh. Suddenly, the Wicked Wicked of the West appears on the scene pretending to investigate the one who killed her twin-sister-in-evil. However, Glinda sees through her motives and in just a matter of a few words, we learn why the Wicked Witch is really there. She’s been down on her luck and desperately needed the magical slippers upon the now-dead witch’s feet.
But as she goes to collect them, Glinda waves her magic wand and the shoes reappear on the feet of Dorothy. Of course, that doesn’t sit well with the Wicked Witch, who begins to berate and belittle both Dorothy (and Glinda). She vows to get those powerful slippers some way, somehow. Soon thereafter, Dorothy is bidden a farewell as she and Toto follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City to see the Wizard of Oz. But before she leaves, Glinda gently delivers a ritualistic kiss to her forehead. (In the Bible, a kiss was used to identify someone too. Remember Judas and Jesus?!?) Although it wasn’t explained in the movie:
…being kissed by a good witch left a mark (unseen by the naked eye) that served as a form of protection.
But Are the Wicked Really Powerful or Not?!?
In the book, the surviving Wicked Witch sends out minions (or flying monkeys) to find and destroy Dorothy. However, in the movie, she is already aware that Dorothy is wearing the ruby slippers. But the flying monkeys initially come back empty-handed:
The leader of the Winged Monkeys flew up to her [Dorothy], his long hairy arms stretched out, and his ugly face grinning terribly; but he saw the mark of the Good Witch’s kiss upon her forehead and stopped short, motioning to the others not to touch her.”
‘We dare not harm this little girl,’ he said to them, ‘for she is protected by the Power of Good, and that is greater than the Power of Evil. All we can do is carry her to the castle of the Wicked Witch and leave her there.’
The Sparkle (of Goodness) Within
In the book, the power was within Dorothy, yet in the movie, the power was shifted to the slippers instead. Even Glinda confirms this at the end of the movie saying “You don’t need to be helped any longer. You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas.” When the scarecrow questioned Glinda about why she didn’t bother sharing that with Dorothy early on, she simply replied: “She wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.” (Source)
Again, in the movie, the writers and producers created a counterfeit version of the power within by shifting it to a physical object. This is why Glinda warned Dorothy to “never let those ruby slippers off your feet for a moment, or you will be at the mercy of the Wicked Witch of the West.” But in all actuality, she was completely oblivious to the Mark of a Good Witch that she carried within her energetic makeup, preventing anyone from being able to take her life. (Remember, the story of Job? “The LORD told Satan, ‘He is in your power, but you must spare his life.” ~Job 2:6 GWT)
Despite it all – from having suffered at the hands of many:
- Betrayed by the Wizard – who tasked her with killing the remaining Wicked Witch and bring back her broom as proof, before he would help her. Yet, he sent word ahead of Dorothy’s arrival on what she was coming to do
- Kidnapped by Flying Monkeys – who dispatched the Wicked Witch
- Held captive by the Wicked Witch – who only cared about gaining more power (through the glass slippers)
…yet her life was still spared. Yes, she had to endure some pain and stuffing throughout her journeys but through it all, she was still protected.Follow #thojbook on:
