The Three Wizard Kings

Hi Chickpeas, Happy Belated Three Kings Day! 

In Latin América, where I live, this day is almost as big as Christmas. The Three Kings or Wise Men are translated as Wizard Kings (los Reyes Magos) because little is known of their geographic kingdoms, but they did follow the stars to find baby Jesus, bringing magical gifts including Frankincense and Myhrr, which are still used to create sacred space in churches, and gold to reflect Jesus's lineage. 


The first author that I saw make the link between the magical and earthly sides of these Wise Men was Christopher Penzcak, author of Buddha, Christ and Merlin: The Three Wise Men For Our Age {link}. In the book, Penzcak talks about the divine wisdom, love and power that are taught by each of the three traditions and how we need all three to live balanced lives.  

I haven't read Penczak's more witchy books but I would definitely recommend the Three Wise Men,  or Magick of Reiki. As a healer, the book that best represents the love aspect of Christianity is The Power of Healing Prayer by a healer-priest, also one of my faves. They say not to judge a book by it's cover, but trust your intuition and read the one you're drawn to. If you haven't read my Crystal Healing & Magick book, also a good place to start! 


About Wizard Kings Day

The Christmas season in Mexico officially starts on December 12th, the day that Mother Mary is celebrated, and begins to end on January 6th (Reyes Magos), when we get together to eat a cake called Rosca de Reyes, which typically has dried fruit and yummy toppings that I'm at a loss to describe in English. There is a tiny doll in the cake, and the person who finds it in their slice then throws a tamale and hot cocoa party on February 2nd, when the celebrations officially end. It makes New Year's Resolutions a little bit tougher to follow! Though from an astrology point of view, those are best left until the 21st of March when the Sun moves into Aries =) 

Here is one of my favourite cakes, a modern twist of scones, chocolate and deliciousness. Those of you in Mexico City can find Macorina Bakery HERE



So that is all for now! If you would like to follow up on any of the traditions mentioned in this post, click on the World Religions Label HERE for entries on Buddhism, Christianity, Kabbalah, Mayan Religion and Hinduism. To name a few =)
