Merlin is one of the most fascinating figures in the Welsh literature and the Arthurian legend. Merlin is a man of mystery and magic; contradiction and controversy surrounded his life. Merlin wore many hats: he was a wizard or sorcerer, a prophet, a bard, an adviser and a tutor. He appeared as a young boy with no father. He appeared as an old, wise man, freely giving his wisdom to four successive British kings. He was a dotting old fool, who couldn't control his lust over beautiful women, who held him in fear and contempt. He had even appeared as a madman after bloody battle, and had fled into the forest and learned how to talk to the animals, where he became known as the Wild Man of the Woods. Merlin was the last of the druid, the Celtic shaman, priest of nature, and keeper of knowledge, particularly of the arcane secrets.
The Merlin archetype energy is very much that of balancing both the feminine and masculine energy principles, by more fully integrating the feminine principle that has been largely forgotten by most. If people want to get more of the things they desire to have in life, it's crucial to go back to where all life begins. It is about going back to the womb of wisdom and cave of creation, deep within. If one decides to re-member all parts of the whole, our natural state of being, magic becomes the rule rather than the exception. When the feminine part of self is reawakened and remembered, there we will find the realm of magic, wonder–the wizard, the alchemist, seer, sorcerer or mystical magician.
Merlin represents the occult sciences, that of the mystic arts and alchemy, knowing that anything can be changed, as we return to our natural magical state of being. We remember that our outer world is merely a mirror of what we project from within, awake or asleep to the awareness that we are creators, creating with every breath we take and with every beat of our hearts…one moment at a time…as time consists of only one moment.
Those who feel pulled to Merlin energy are those who want to re-member the whole of who he or she is. They have had enough of not enough, lack, limitation, hard work, dis-ease, struggle, suffering, and pain. They know there is something else to remember, and so much want to reawaken the power of the feminine principle. This has nothing to do with separation of the sexes… but rather the fuller integration of the feminine energetic principle within all of us, both the male and female.
Merlin the magician, the mystical, magical wizard of wizards, only calls those who have the eyes to see and the ears to hear!
