Are There Spirits Around Me?

Questions People Ask A Psychic Medium

This is one of the most common questions I am asked and the answer is yes. There are all kinds of spirits around all of us all the time.

People are always dying, and as they leave their bodies, their spirits pass by our world, or exit through our world, so they are “around” us.

There are spirits of water, of trees, of animals and of places that are around us all the time. In cities there is often so much static in the ethers that it is impossible to notice these subtle vibrations or frequencies.

We have microwaves, cell phone towers, power lines, electric lights, radio waves as well as light rays and energy waves from the universe that pass right though our world that are all energetically affecting our fine senses.

To confound our ability to sense the presence of human or spiritual energies, in city environments we often have constant noise.  The traffic sounds alone drown the voice of the natural world and extinguish for most the voices of the world of spirits.

When people ask the topic question in a session, I ask if they are hoping to connect with a particular ancestor, or recently deceased loved one.
If you are hoping to see if your loved one is watching over you, it is best to be direct with your reader and ask to see what you really want to know.  An ethical reader will do his or her best to help you connect with a departed friend. I have a short podcast on mediumship if you would like more information on that topic.

Depending on your tradition there could be gods, angels, demons, dakinis, nagas, devas or pretas to name just a few kinds of spiritual energies that might be near you at any given time. This does not mean that those spirits are active in your life, nor that they will have an effect on your world.

For a seer, the presence of spiritual energies is familiar. For some con “artists” it is common practice to use a perons awareness and/or belief in the presence of spirits to convince that client their run of bad luck is due to someone who has cursed them, or sent evil spirits after them to do them harm or to cause trouble.

I recently has a conversation with a man who had a family member boast that they (the family member) had gone “down to see a witch” and have a spell cast against that man. The man who bought the spell – if indeed he did such a thing – really bought himself a world of trouble.

The intention to harm another person is a very serious matter with negative karmic consequences. There is no escape from causality. Whether the harm is caused by physical or spiritual means, the intent is the same – to do harm.

I realize if you follow my blogs you will notice that I post time and again that there are very few people who are indeed powerful enough to cast spells to cause harm. Please, realize that it is seldom if ever the case that you are cursed by the actions of another person.

It can be true that spiritual energies of one kind or another that have “found” you, are in your Auric space or perhaps in your home or business. These energies – especially those that are in places may be or have been in that area for ages. Their presence in your life is not about you…. they may belong where they are.

As well there are indeed energies that become “trapped” in certain locations or in some cases, that follow people for some reason.  While this can feel uncomfortable, it is seldom dangerous.

If you feel that there is true energetic danger in your home or business, then it is best to call a priest, a pastor, or an energy healer to remove that disturbance in a kind yet effective way.
May priests and pastors do house blessings as a part of their spiritual practice. Some may accept donations, others ask that you make a donation to the church.

Energy healers, in particular Usui Reiki energy healers will charge for their services. This is part of their tradition – that there should be a transfer of energy between the healer and those receiving services.

I hope you have enjoyed this article and will use it to move forward in the most successful way possible.

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.
