Root Work • Buyer Be Ware!

It is not uncommon for me to receive one or two calls a week from people all over the country who have consulted a “psychic” and shortly thereafter, perhaps their second visit, find that a set up is in play.

The set up usually begins in an innocent way. The reader (con artist) will make a magical suggestion, perhaps for the client to wear money folded in a special way on their body. Another suggestion is  to sleep with an egg under the pillow. There are many variations of the magical suggestion.

Each can be an intriguing suggestion, and as no harm seems immediate, why not? Why not try that suggestion which may help you achieve your goals. Most often, the money or the egg is brought to the next session.

The reader will report that they can see from the contents of the egg, or the condition of the money that someone has “put a root” on the seeker.  The root could have been “worked” to cause the client to lose love, lose health, or to have “bad luck”.

Sometimes these false readers will actually introduce the idea that someone is working roots or has put a root on the seeker, or a family member at the very first session!

Be sure, these readers often have some gift. Many are very good cold readers. Some are indeed gifted seers, but these kind of seers will seek profit above all.

I believe they corrupt the gift by setting a snare. Once hooked, clients may spend as little as $300 and as much as $30,000 to remove the root. Sometimes the language is different. Sometimes there is a curse, a spell, a black cloud in the aura that will bring trouble to the seeker.

  • To be sure, there are sorcerers in this world.
  • Be sure there are those who can indeed conjure.
  • There are those shamans who have so practiced their path that they are able to accomplish remarkable things.
  • There are those who can become invisible.
  • There are some who can move through time.
  • There are powerful sadhus in India who have such mastery over self and mind that their feats are legendary or secret.
  • There are shamans born hundreds of years ago who remain in formless realms and can be contacted today.

It is my experience that those powerful beings who can indeed do magic, will do this for others only to do good work. They can bring blessings, healings, peace and harmony where no hope of such things existed.

If a shaman, priestess, or mystic seer has devoted their life to perfecting their intention, it is unlikely that they will sell their mastery to “reunite lost love.”

As for me, I understand that every action has a reaction. I understand that willingly causing harm to another person has a cost! I will not pay that price.

I advise everyone who seeks a magical solution to look within. If you stop to think about it, each one of us contains all the magic we need to change our lives, and indeed the world.

The challenge in Western culture is that we have become separated from our own magnificence. We are so far from sleeping under the stars, listening to the animals move through the darkness, hearing only the stillness of the natural world, the bird song, the wind in the leaves…. that touching the mystic requires time many of us do not have.

As well, it can seem easier to let the “expert” take care of the problem. When I first began working in Jacksonville, Florida it was very common for me to have new clients come who had already spent hundreds on special candles that would be burned in special ceremonies.

A ritual candle is a tool you may use to train your mind and work the magic of recreating your own life. Positive affirmations, mantra, psalms are all tools at your fingertips that can help you work your own magick.

I did a touch of research on line to see what the web had to say. I can share my experience. I have indeed met masters of magic. I have seen great deeds done. I have seen blessings and hope, help and healing accomplished through herbal blends, incense, carrying amulets and talismans.

In all those cases, the “magick” was done by the person seeking change. I invite you to seek within to discover your magick. Don’t pay someone else please. The risk is that you will fall deeper and deeper down a rabbit hole.

Peace to all.

Am I Cursed? Has Someone Put a Spell on Me?

I hear this question often. It is very important and deserves a full reply. In order to reply effectively, it is necessary to be specific about the kind of curses that may be referred to. 

 
a) Inherited Curses or Family Curses.
There are those who feel as if they have inherited a curse, are cursed from birth, or are born under a bad sign, or an unlucky star. 
 
b) Spells and Witchcraft
In European cultures one may feel a curse has either be cast upon oneself by an enemy, or that a curse or spell has been purchased by an enemy from a witch or sorcerer to cause harm to an individual, family, farm or business. As in African cultures, there is also a fear of cursing where a ghost or demon is summoned and attached to a person.
 
c) Voudou and Root Work
In African as in other cultures, curses are often issue specific and there are many different ways they may be cast against one. Some curses are to create a series of misfortunes, others are to call down a malevolent spirit to plague a person, while some are cast to cause wasting, poverty, impotence, loss of love, etc.
 
d) “Discovered Curses”
These alleged curses are often part of a very effective and costly scam process wherein a “psychic” or “reader” tells the customer that they (the con artist) see that the customer has “bad luck” or a curse upon them, and that curse is the cause for all the misfortunes the customer is experiencing. This particular scam is set up so that only the con artist who discovered the curse has the power to remove it.
 
The most important point to remember as we go forward in the exploration of the topic of curses and spell is causality, or karma. Every action has a consequence. Your past actions for good or ill have a consequence. Sometimes the fruit of ones negative past actions ripen all at once, and one can quite easily feel as if they are cursed, unfortunate, or born under a bad sign. 
 
If you are feeling plagued or cursed, it is often useful to pause and have a look at your life, your recent actions, thoughts, words and deeds to see if they are virtuous and bring you peace of mind. If not, if in fact you have failed to take responsibility for your behavior, are not living a sober and healthy life, then you may be reaping that which you have sown.
 
When looking at curses, hexes and spells, it is very important to remember that the individual you feel is responsible for working to do you harm must also reap the consequences of their willful action to do you harm.  This may not be comforting while you are in the midst of the whirlwind, but rest assured, those who do evil, who do not repent, who do not purify their negative actions, ultimately will pay a far greater price than you, the cursed one are experiencing. 
 
So, are there curses? Yes indeed. There are also spells and hexes, angels and demons, spirit of deities and spirits of the departed, and many other kinds of spirits in this wide and magical world. Most often, the unseen world remains unseen, and human beings move through this one as if it is “real” and solid and lasting. 
 
There are very few people I have met, fewer still that I have read for, who are actually suffering from a curse placed upon them by someone else. From time to time I do meet people who, through occult carelessness, have opened doors they cannot close, and find themselves “face to face” with powers greater than expected.
 
I write this as in introduction to what must be a series of articles on curses. This begins on the mundane, or material level of perception as this is a good place to lay the ground work for the energetic nature of relationships that can cause one to feel as if they are also cursed………. but that is an article for another day.
 
Should you care to consult me about this topic, I do offer paranormal consultations by appointment. However, as you will see if you “stay tuned” there are many useful ways for you to get your power back, to be clean, free, and have peace of mind once again.
 
All blessings to you.
