Some days can be challenging, but if you have more lows than highs in a 3 week period, chances are there are stale or “negative” energies keeping you from accomplishing the little things in life. All that negativity that can fester and begin to manifest worse situations than the inexplicable breakdown of an appliance has been thrown out of control! The signs of the evil eye or spiritual work being done against you are pretty much what you would expect:
Nightmares (especially recurring ones), feeling of exhaustion, depression, paranoia, financial problems, disturbing vibrations in the house, hostility towards / from loved ones, propensity to accidents more than usual, restlessness, general malaise. Sometimes you will find yourself reflecting on every embarrassing moment you’ve ever felt, almost before waking up in the morning with your hair still glued to your pillow!
The most common form of spiritual attack is in fact the “Evil Eye”, and it is also the easiest form of malice to operate because you don’t have to be a card-carrying witch to use it.
There are varying degrees of evil eye attacks … the most feared is the feared Mal’occhio. Not everyone can perform this version of the operation skillfully, and an aspiring warlock would have to be thoroughly and competently trained to administer it. With this in mind, I draw on my experience that it is the common misconception of jealousy that most of us have to deal with.
Its operation is simple: thought creates and directs energy!
If your thoughts are emotionally and willingly focused enough on an event for it to happen, good or bad, that reality will seek to manifest!
It also works for the effectiveness of the curse. In other words, if you believe that you are cursed, or that someone you know has “rooted” you or cast the evil eye on you, too much attention will give negative energy an extra hand to dominate you and ultimately bring you down (or in its worst season, taking you out!). As dangerous as these episodes can be, there are ways to eliminate most, if not all, of the negative energies that are directed at you from the occasional smelly eye.
The first step in jealously fighting the green eye is to consider the source and get away from that person or group, such as not getting involved in their life, more particularly in their PROBLEMS! You may have to go as far as to remove some people from your favorite social network’s friends list! I’m talking about the people who call you every 5 minutes complaining miserably that everything is going wrong in their life and how lucky you are that everything comes easily to you (Yes, you can almost hear it in their voice!).
The next step I would recommend would be the 3C … Clean, Clean and Clean!
Cleanse yourself by taking a bath in holy water or sea salt, for at least 7 consecutive days. There are many things you can add to bath water to get rid of bad influences, but here we are going to stick to the basics. Sea salt is available at most dollar stores these days, but if you don’t have it ready, kosher salt or, at the very least, table salt will do the trick.
FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, DON’T USE WINTERIZED ROCK SALT FOR SNOW IN YOUR BATHROOM!
After you put a handful of salt in your bath water, I suggest you recite a prayer of protection in accordance with your religious belief system. Psalm 23 is great for this, but even saying a prayer from your heart in your own words is great!
CLEAN THE AIR:
Burn incense throughout your home, these can be from the variety of sticks found in most dollar stores or Wal-Mart. Sage is good for this, but you can use any floral scent like rose or a woody scent like sandalwood. Both are traditionally used to create sacred spaces and to “raise” vibrations in a room. It’s also a good idea to open at least one window or door in every room to “chase evil” and quickly get rid of it from your home.
CLEAN THE HOUSE:
Rearranging some rooms in the house, primarily the living room and bedroom, is said to help “prevent evil from returning to where it was stored.” A good mop with a bucket of ammonia water (failing that, a mixture of water, white vinegar, and salt with a splash of lemon juice) is HIGHLY suggested while burning incense. This is invaluable, especially if the jealousy virus has been in your house recently, trying to get you out of conversation and out of a cup of coffee!
Start from the TOPmost floor of the house and work DOWN from the BACK of the house to the FRONT door. If you have rugs or rugs around the house, just fill a dollar store spray bottle with the water from your mop and spray the areas you can’t mop. Let the mist settle on the carpeted areas for about 15 minutes, then vacuum over it. After vacuuming, empty the vacuum bag or container outside your home into a garbage bag. Any excess water from the mop should be flushed down the toilet. You can also clean flat surfaces, such as countertops and tables, using the spray bottle method.
The last thing you need to do is light a white candle, with the names of your family members carved on it, anointed with olive oil. This should burn for at least 7 days after your cleaning project has started. If your candle goes out completely before the 7 days are up, simply anoint another one and light it instead!
In fact, I would make a habit of lighting white candles at least once a month for spiritual protection.
Speaking of protection, my next article will move on to preventing the evil eye as we build an amulet or a fitted “mojo” bag for personal psychic protection.
If you continue to have problems beyond 2 weeks after doing your cleanse, I suggest that you consult with an experienced spiritualist or magic practitioner to ensure that there are no extreme magical practices directed against you or your loved ones.
That’s it for now, gang! I’ll share more information in the next few weeks!
Health and spirit!
