Intrusions: curses, spells, contracts, vows, intentions…
Curses and Intention
WORDS are powerful forms of expression and powerful energies. When words are combined with intense emotion, the emotion acts as fuel for the word, the greater the emotion, the greater the fuel.
An intention puts things into motion universally. Life force is also fuel. Throughout history, sacrifices have been performed and given to add extreme power to an intention. The majority of us do not live in a culture such as this, perhaps making such an idea seem foreign and primitive. However, regardless of our lack of appreciation for sacrifice, many peoples still use a form of sacrifice to ensure the power of a ceremony.
Someone may try many ways to heal. They have read the books, done the workshops, gone to both allopathic and alternative practitioners, but their condition persists. They have something chronic: pain, misfortune, failure, chronic weight loss. As a shamanic healer I find answers often hidden in other lifetimes of my patient. I use tracking techniques to search for sources of whatever may be considered “Chronic”. Sometimes, I find the source, in the form of a curse a often it was placed in another lifetime. We attempt to unravel it, seek to understand its origins, return, usually, with instructions to complete the physical unbinding, to the patient. The intention is to break the cycle of the “chronic”.
Shamanism does not view lifetimes as linear – past, present, future – but all happening simultaneously. If there was a spell, curse, oath, promise, declaration, vow or contract that was created in another lifetime that has a huge amount of life force with it, it is very likely that life force is still alive and activated in the energy system. The energy of the “contract” is still in motion and affecting this lifetime. Journeys into these other lifetimes and changing the situation in that lifetime literally changes the outcome that the client is living today. I find this work fascinating and effective.
There are many ways that curses and spells can be activated. Watch a few movies to get a feel for the drama of the past. Declaration, vows, and oaths were common. Great ceremonies and rituals often sealed the deal. Energy was put into motion in a dynamic way with lots of life force and emotion.
The Hatfields and McCoys are a classic example of feuding that is passed on energetically, to the offspring. The offspring, are then raised in an environment that automatically sees fault and disdain for either family name. I cast my eye to regions of the world who have seldom experienced long years of peace… feuding for centuries. The vows, the curses, the spells that have been cast, because of these intense feelings can cause enormous amounts of bloodshed.
Blood is only one example of huge amounts of life force. Emotion without the blood can be just as binding. Fear can create power over a person or persons, living on for centuries. The fear of burning in hell has been a controlling device that has proven to be effective, harmful, and invasive. If you want to control people, scare people; it has a darn good track record of effectiveness.
Fear has built enormous thought forms and they affect us all. The fear of survival is a root chakra broadcast (root meaning the basis of all things). If this chakra is out of alignment with its origin of wellness, safety, security, and belonging, the foundation of a person can be altered. With enough individuals expressing this fear, the foundation of a culture can be altered, and all of these broadcasts feed the thought form that lingers.
Many, if not all people have some sort of curse or spell on them. We as a culture tend to be very sloppy with our words, not aware that they are a powerful energy that lives on. We curse ourselves and curse others with words and emotions. Simple self-imposed curses can bind someone energetically from creating the type of life desired or hinder the manifestation of health and dreams.
Words and intentions live on. However, they can be cleared and you can heal from them.
A few simple questions will open the door to streams of past life imprints. Just finish the sentence: “I always…..” or “I never…”
One could answer “I always have to do it all alone” or “I never have enough money.”
Sometimes we even make casual comments when describing our feelings that are loaded with past life imagery, such as, “I feel like a slave”; “My hands are tied”; “I’ve been stabbed in the back”; “There’s no way out.”
These repetitive themes, that we take as actual truth, and that shape our reality, are most likely core themes that past life characters are still unresolved with. They are changeable, but they are also so darn familiar, that one can’t even conceive that it might be possible.
Unravelling a Curse
To begin, I ask “How can we know who we are, if we do not know where we have come from?”, “How do we understand what is affecting us, if we do not, generally, feel our energetic bodies?” I am teaching you the ways of my Mummo. My Mummo (grandma) showed me how to track energy from one place to another. Much like you will do. Energy can look like anything. It can look like a very long rope, it can be a beam of light, it can even be a scent. The energy of a curse varies from curse to curse.
When I am undertaking a new lesson, or learning a new skill, I first merge with my authentic self. Your words may differ, but it is the aspect of me which is my purest spiritual self. After this undertaking, I encourage you to find a spirit that will help you with negotiations to remove the curse or curses ~ your curse negotiator. I often find I am negotiating during journey work, whether it be to get somewhere (across a river), a gatekeeper, an ancestor you wish to seek a direction from. Tracking can lead you to meet some very interesting characters. I set my intention for the journey to be a curse removal. When I begin the journey, my curse negotiator is waiting for me.
This is one of those spiritual healings where your energy can not be given or taken to break the curse or curses because it has nothing to do with you. You and the curse negotiator, may encounter the curse originator and/or the curse creator. They are not always the same person. My curse negotiator is the one, whose role it is, to undo, unbind, or break the curse. I am not allowed to see the negotiations or hear the exchange. Generally, once the task has been completed, I am generally tasked with delivering the final messages to the patient. They often have a task, or a series of tasks, which need to be completed, in order to fully release the physical/mental/emotional body, from the spiritual cause.
