Leprechaun Banned from Monk’s Retreat
posted: March 8th, 2012
Last week I went down to Broadhempston in Devon to see my good friend the Inner Wisdom Expert Srimati and her lovely husband Pat.
Pat (aka @HolyCornishman on Twitter) is a very interesting, humurous and spiritual guy (here’s a clip below) and (horror of horrors to all the green tree drinking Mind Body Spirit people) does like the occasional glass of wine or three… Plus he is a Dragon in the Chinese scheme of things, all of which means to me he’s always great fun to be with.
After an evening of great conversation and laughter, helped along by several bottles of Pinot Grigio, Srimati, Pat and I decided to venture out into the (deserted) village – and for some reason ended up jiving to ‘Dancing Queen’ outside the local pub ‘The Monk’s Retreat’. To cut a long story short they refused to serve us and we were ejected by the landlord, followed up by a letter apparently sent the next day to say we were officially ‘banned’ and if we turned up again the police would be called!
Not very spiritual behaviour???
The answer lies in a brilliant book by Doreen Virtue called ‘Realms of the Earth Angels’ and I’ve just re-read my copy.
Essentially about people who are different and who don’t conform/fit in with the rest of society.
One type is the incarnate elementals – pure elemental energy, the rule breakers, with fiery tempers and addictive personalities, who love women & sex, who are also the life and soul of the party with a mischievous disruptive sense of humour. Then there are the wise ones – old souls with pure magic energy. And a description of a combination of the two (the Leprechauns) – which exactly fits Pat.
According to the book, the Leprechauns are magical time-travelling shape shifters possessing ancient wisdom and healing powers, vacillating between being serious teachers & rowdy jokesters…. wonderfully entertaining teachers & storytellers. ‘As long as you can weather their vacillating moods and flirtations, Leprechauns make wonderful friends and romantic partners. You’ll never be bored by a member of this realm.’
All this made me realise there is another Leprechaun in my life – Barefoot Doctor aka Stephen Russell – who I am now managing. He’s also legendary for his outspoken behaviour and has been banished from several kingdoms as a result of it! Much pompous judgement and speculation rumbles on – particularly amongst the ‘love and light’ people – as to whether his is ‘spiritual behaviour’.
Both Pat and Stephen are lights of my life.
The point of this post is that when we start to understand one another’s amazing energy and enjoy the essence and the magic of it – instead of judging others according our set of ‘rules’ as to what is acceptable and particularly what is ‘spiritual’ – that’s when we can all truly relax and have some fun!
(It is of course easier to say all this when you know you are a much misunderstood elemental yourself – just a different sort – but that’s a whole other blogpost :-)
Wishing you a lovely Leprechaun fun-filled day!!!
