Maybe it will be taken care of anyway.
I have experienced this kind of clap on the fingers sometimes, with a message of: this is not yours to deal with. Usually I tend to listen. ;)

 
Ditto to Tana. You were offered an out that many do not receive in these kinds of circumstances though I can definitely understand not really getting the answer you were hoping for.

I have faith, however, that there is a resolution at hand and all just desserts will be served and properly chilled for maximum flavor.

*nods* Of course. I also prefer to take things into my own hands and get them done, but sometimes The Powers That Be have obviously other plans. I really feel your frustration about this.
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p

On occasion, especially when it comes to my loved ones, I've been known to be...stubborn, and less of a listener than I ought to be.  I just really wanted to hear something else, you know?  I wanted some good news, and to be able to say, "Well, we found you a solution, and by the way, this terrible person isn't going to be hurting anyone any more."

 
Is it possible that this person's actions have hurt someone else with 'access' so to speak to spiritual avengers? Maybe you rang secondly and they knocked first?

Either way best luck and wishes for the safety of your family and the cessation of this person's influence and abuse.

The person being hurt most directly is of another religious devotion, and already has her patron on the case, but her patron is...nicer than a lot of the Names I associate with, and I wanted to offer backup.  This may mean going through her patron instead.

Quote from: Valentine;120855
I'm putting out feelers.  There's someone who is behaving in a threatening and abusive way with a family member of mine that so far has evaded leaving enough of a trail for legal repercussions, who has her sort of trapped right now and has continued this behavior for years without being stopped.  

He's in a position of power in community and professionally, one that puts him in a position to be quietly hurting other people, too--I have no doubt he's abused his position to attack others, even while he's zeroing in on my family member in particular.  In the meantime, we're working on getting her out of the situation, but it's complicated and sticky.

I have two goals here: I want her protected and upheld, and I want him hurt, frankly.  I want him out of his position and for there to be consequences for his actions, so he can't hurt more people, and (personally) I want him to suffer.  (Maybe that's two and a half goals, with the suffering.  But he has continuously hurt someone I love, in cruel, manipulative, terrible ways, and I would like his name to wear out before he's done with it, and his blood to betray him, and his bones to rot.)

I know we all have a variety of ethics around this kind of work in this community.  In the tradition I was raised in, this is the sort of time you curse the dickens out of someone, and right now, by myself, I don't have the oomph.  I tried to hire on a colleague curandera but she ended up having a time conflict, so I'm looking for new backup.

Would anyone be interested in helping me toward any or all of these goals with your own resources?  I can give more detail for people who are on board.

 


I can understand anger, although I'd rather help with sending protective or loving magic out there. Blessed be to you!
