You and your site are simply amazing and have provided me with so much guidance. THANK YOU so much. I was hoping for your sage opinion on an ongoing problem.
Overall, I’m doing good. I take care of myself. I eat well. I workout. I work hard but I sleep enough. I have a healthy spiritual practice. I even go to therapy twice a month. I survived my Saturn return with no permanent damage. And yet, I’m feeling a bit… shackled by the past. Without getting into too much detail, something shitty happened to me years ago, and the aftermath is still playing out. I was briefly involved with a very bad person. I later learned that this person had caused a lot of people an incredible amount of pain. Although I haven’t had any contact with him for years, I still feel bled by his very existence. I think the others feel the same. I live on the good side of life. I am kind. I always try to do the right thing. But my brief encounter with him has left a stain. I don’t want to be afraid of him, but it’s instinctual. I fear him on a cellular level. He’s become the worst kind of Qi Vamp—the kind that lingers like a ghost in your subconscious long after you’ve cut actual ties. What’s worse is I’m required to go to an upcoming event that he will be at.
My question is: what is the best way to spiritually purge and self protect? I know I need to white light myself, ask for the help of the good forces around me, and forever rid this gross influence from my life—but how?
Banishing spells, trusted pagan practices, and other magic tips all welcome.
Thank you in advance.
First of all thank you! And i am sending you a Pluto Power Candle when the next batch is ready on April 18 – it smells sensual and comforting but also packs quite the psychic punch.
And okay, i can relate to this. My daughter’s stalker is still out there, his apprehension imminent and it is all being handled by the appropriate people but still…the vibe of it all stirs up traumatic old memories and it’s like their sleazy Qi infiltrates. So i get it.
Some thoughts. Are you really required to be at this social event? I know that there is a school of thought which says turn up, aura armor set to “stun” and dazzle the fuq out of this slimy fuqwit with your white light, resilience and glamor. Be the Queen. But on another level, this is your life, and you don’t have to be in places or with people that make you uncomfortable. He is clearly an undesirable. I would just not go.
Re clearing…I am super basic re this. Sage & Salt. Only in the situation where you feel there is actual dark vibe around, maybe upgrade to Mugwort aka Black Sage aka Artemesia or Herb of Artemis. It is a powerful as fuq. I would (and in fact i am going to do a similar ritual as Pluto turns Retro next week – that is when it’s really powerful) clean the house like a maniac – to the point that Marie Kondo would flip out at the cleanliness.
Then fling salt around and sweep or vacuum it out. Then deploy your smudge stick for as long as you think it needs. If you tune in, you can feel the air becoming less dense and gluggy.
Then bang some Tibetan bells or just play them loudly off iTunes. Then you can do a tie-cutting ritual of your choice or the less fancy but very effective method of writing the person a “fuq you” letter, reading it aloud and burning it. Finally, put a line of salt across your thresholds. You can grind it up with garlic if you want to be really fuq with anything dark. As you lay it down, say with intend “none who intend me harm may enter here.”
Once your space is resolutely clear, mantras can be amazing. Eg: the Green Tara one – Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha.
Or the intensely calming and empowering Prayer to Brigid
Every day, every night
That I praise the Goddess,
I know I will be safe;
I know I will not be caught
I shall not be harmed.
Fire, sun and moon
Cannot burn me.
Fairy arrow cannot pierce me.
I am safe, safe, safe,
Singing Her praises.
Brigid, gold-red woman,
Brigid, flame and honeycomb,
Brigid, sun of womanhood,
Brigid, lead me home.
You are a branch in blossom.
You are a sheltering dome.
You are my bright precious freedom.
Brigid, lead me home.
Or, a more basic curse from the notebooks of Albert Camus: “Fuck off from the face of the earth and remain fucked. Entirely. Fucked.”
So i am sure people here will have plenty of thoughts also…but remember that this character has NO RIGHT to take up occupancy in your head. None whatsoever
What does everyone else think?
