I shall try to explain but I am very wary of the fact that I just don't know enough. It is mostly guesswork and theorising, while trying to ignore
whatever Hollywood has told me about the subject area
This was my impression given what you have posted to date.
You appear to have gone through a transition. You started this as a "solitary witch" who was investigating houses for two clients who did not appear
to have any real involvement (other than perhaps interest) with your craft. After a while, that "professional distance" has given way to a close
knit group. Not only that (or perhaps because of that), you have been teaching and guiding them into your craft. It sounds like you have naturally
evolved into a coven built around a maiden, mother and crone, and this has been realised (even if only subconsciously) by all three of you, and you
all draw strength from that relationship. It's a normal human reaction when part of any group to feel that an attack on one member is an attack on
all members, an attack on the integrity of the group. I would think from what you have said that this kind of group can be much stronger and would be
a very signifant threat to any "entity". Or perhaps it is not so much the threat as the sense of challenge? You might have become the demonic
equivalent of an enjoyably tricky Sudoku!
There is an expression that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" - in this case, your close-knit group is capable of much more than you
would be individually. You have become a part of the problem (or, I suppose, solution) rather than an outsider, though this may well be to the benefit
of the group in the long run.
The impact on the investigation that I am suggesting is that any entity that may exist is now faced with a different "enemy" - your group. It is an
enemy that has challenged and fought it, from what you report. The entity has instead changed the approach from the head-on confrontation of "red
eyes and haunting" aimed to scare the wits out of the individual members, to a more subtle approach designed to break up the power of the group. One
member is under direct ongoing bombardment, you appear to have been "threatened" in your own home.
Don't take this the wrong way, but the whole "D.R." thing feels like it is trying to appeal to your vanity; you (individually and as a group) are
"special" enough to be in contact with this mysterious, ancient and wise figure. Through vanity you can be misdirected and misguided or worse. I
would imagine for a beginner there must be a sense of wonder and excitement - "I can't believe I'm really involved in this! How exciting!" -
combined with thoughts about where it could take them and what they could learn. I'm sure there would also be a few daydreams thrown in there too.
This is a perfectly normal human reaction. The risk would be that it could be easier to appeal to their vanity and novice enthusiasm. Perhaps a good
analogy (for men at least, from my own experience
) is when you learn to drive. By the end of the second lesson you're already picturing yourself
behind the wheel of a Ferrari with hordes of women swooning as you drive past. What if, in this analogy, DR was the shifty guy who turned up and
started hinting that they could show me how to get a Ferrari of my very own? Would I end up obsessing over the chance to get a Ferarri instead of
concentrating on what was important? Absolutely. I'm very weak minded like that
Now you have recognised DR as the entity, it appears to have gone back to threats against yourself and more direct attacks on the other - the person
who is the maiden/novice in your circle, is that correct?.
I hope that makes my thinking a little clearer? It's mostly guesswork and theorising based on a woefully inadequate amount of knowledge. My thinking
is getting a little wonky as I've not had a cigarette since last night and I'm planning to be a non-smoker again by the end of the weekend...
