We have all experienced negative or dark energies, or have been in the company of someone whose energy was draining or heavy, so heavy that it affects you. A headache may come on suddenly, or any type of ache and pain or your mood may change from happy to sad or angry or you feel grimy or dirty or even down right disgusted without knowing why. People who take public transportations will have daily contact with loads of different energies and believe it or not these things can affect you even when you move away from them.
It can affect your relationship with your spouse, your children, co-workers, boss, friends, animals etc… Often times people will feel ill and doctors will not be able to find anything wrong with them. Some people may also experience panic attacks or anxiety attacks and this is due more times than not to unhealthy energies that surrounds the person. Oonuh see why it is important to embrace your spirituality? Because many people go through these things with no idea of what is happening to them. Not everything is Obeah/Juju/Voodoo/ Witchcraft, some things are just bad energies which may have entered your space or you guh inna ah fi dem space! We will address the obeah one ah little later or in another post, stay tuned!
Even buying furniture and bringing them home, you have brought other people’s energy into your space. It is a common practice in Jamaica for Jamaicans to “burn out” a new apartment or house before they move in. Most people in Jamaica usually use Frank Incense and Myrrh in their attempt to remove bad energy or any lingering “duppy” (ghost) who refuse to move out, or wayward spirits who might have moved in when the previous owners moved out. The possibilities of where one could come in contact with bad energies are endless, and the way they can affect us negatively are also endless and this is why we need to know how to remove them.
Salt is wonderful for everything and believe it or not it is very good in removing negative energies. A little salt in some tepid water along with an odd number of limes, three, five seven or nine, (depending on what your own spirit says to you) is a quick and certain way to remove bad vibrations. Do not allow the salt to spill in your house or on to you.
You can use Frank incense and myrrh as an incense on charcoal to incense/smoke the house, but you can also use it to smoke over your body to remove bad energy.
Florida water is wonderful just by its lonesome, this you can get in any grocery store. Be careful it burns if it gets into the eyes, but you can use it to wipe over your body or you can add water and some white Flower Petals and use it to bath with as you pray.
The good old Jamaican White Rum, (Gin can be substituted) is also excellent. Use it the same way as you would use the Florida Water.
Take heed to this post and know that I have shared real information with you. As usual be safe in everything you do, the Florida Water and Rum or Gin can burn sensitive skin or eyes so if your skin is sensitive do not use it and if you do, remember to close your eyes.
