Hello, I'll jump right into it. About a week ago one of my cats died. I'm not entirely sure how, but I think that it was perhaps old age. The strange thing was that the night she died, I dreamed of her. The dream was her play/fighting with my other cat and there was a puddle of blood. There wasn't any blood when we found her, but I thought it was strange all the same. I'm not sure about witchcraft and things, but my girlfriend is Wiccan and wasn't sure what to tell me. I guess my question is why did I dream that? Or something along those lines.
Anyway, thank you for your time.
Dreams are often a way for our subconscious mind to process our thoughts or emotions. When we lose someone we love unexpectedly, our brain tries to make sense over what we're feeling. I'm sorry for your loss.
I'm afraid someone has cast a bad spell over/against me. How can I be sure of this? Are there concrete signs (other than waves of bad luck) that one can discern whether such spells have been cast? If so, is there any defense against them?
Believe it or not, negative energy, curses, hexes, etc. all have signs and symptoms. Below are a few of the most common signs.
Unbelievable bad luck. Nothing works out the way it should.
Constant nightmares, usually involving you fighting or defending against unknown forces
Fights and arguments with loved ones
Constant personal accidents like falling and bumping into things
Sudden illness that seem to last longer than normal, i.e. a cold that lasts for 6 weeks
Feeling “unclean” or “dirty”
Feelings of being watched
The best weapon against negativity is counter magick, which consists of protective amulets, candle rituals, herbs and oils that help to remove curses and evil from your life, various psychic defense methods, bindings to render a sorcerer or sorceress powerless, spells to create a protective shield against attacks of black magick, spells to break hexes and curses, and spells that redirect the malevolent energy of a curse back to its sender. If negativity energy seems to be surrounding you, or you feel that you have been cursed or hexed, the below are a few things that you can do to protect yourself.
Stay calm! Fear helps curses to take effect and empowers negativity energy.
Cleanse yourself and your sacred space.
Carry bloodstone (absorbs negative energy), red jasper (returns negative energy to its sender), and clear quartz (magnifies the energy of other gemstones) on your person or place one of each on every windowsill in your home.
Hang a sachet of herbs and gemstones outside your door.
An image of what I thought was a green demon appeared on my iPad now. By reading up on black magic, I discovered "the green man" wasn't a demon after all. He was there for a second or two then disappeared. I couldn't find where or how this image/graphic was generated. I'm desperate to know what message the universe is sending me.
Please advise me.
Seeing the Green Man can mean that you need to get back in touch with Mother Earth and nature in general. Being in touch with the Earth can help you feel stable and grounded. Perhaps you should go for a hike and have a picnic beneath the trees and just allow yourself to feel the soothing energy Earth has to offer.
Good question! A binding spell is a spell that binds the intended person from (usually) a negative or harmful activity/action/habit. The problem with binding spells is that they don't usually last for long lengths of time because spells are fueled by the energy of need. Our need for a person to stop may not be greater than their need to continue.
I have a curse which has been handed down in my family. I don't know who it's from or why. I need it removed. I don't know how or what to do to remove it. I was told by the lady in the store to get uncrossing oil, frankincense, black candles, holy water, and sage and contact someone who knows what to do with it. So I'm asking you to please help me out. I really need this off of me. I did nothing to deserve this. Please help if you can.
I have been on this path solitary for a long time, but still have so much to learn. I have two women at work - but especially one, Kim - who are really bullying me. She will smile and talk to you one minute and then give you dirty looks and ignore you the next. I have been there over a year. She has been there a few months more, and she has made my time there a living hell. I love this job and work very hard. My boss is always saying I'm a great worker, but lately Kim is telling him things or twisting things to try to change his opinion of me. She is very good at this. I have seen her do things and could also do the same thing, but I just want her to stop or go away. She claims she is so religious but yet acts very evil. No one at work knows my beliefs because it would be a problem. Could you suggest some spells or amulets or stones that could help me? I look at spells but usually will wait and think before I do any, especially if I'm upset. I feel like she's winning. It's been very hard. I would appreciate anything you suggest. Thank you.
I wrote a blog entry about the third eye. I see, occasionally, with eyes closed on the back of my lids or with eyes open in darkness, an eye with lids and it looks around. I have seen other visions of animals with morphing shapes, etc. Is this something that the Buddhists refer to? I met a woman who knew about this happening with people who meditate; I meditate as well. Thanks for taking my question.
If you wrote a blog about the third eye, then you know the visions you are seeing is your intuition waking. I'm not sure what the Buddhists would say about it though. Keep meditating and working with your third eye. The Universe is always trying to guide us, and It does this through our intuition.
I hike the same area weekly and have for months. Last week and twice since then in the afternoon, I have seen an owl. It flies over me then perches in a tree, looks at me, stays a few minutes, then flies away. I'm wondering if you have any ideas on the meaning of this?
I'm guessing your owl is introducing him/herself to you as your new spirit guide/totem. Owls represent wisdom and intuition. When the owl enters your life, it usually means that you need to see deeper into a situation you are in. Pay attention to what is happening around you (including what you were just thinking about) when the owl appears to you.
