Since I wrote the post the Symptoms of Tying, I have received tons of emails of people who are affected by it, (read here for one of my own personal stories, this one is of my father). For people who can read patois, (it is in patois straight through) read this one, it is also very personal to me, as a matter of fact this was the second post I ever wrote on my blog. Through out my postings here on Embracing Spirituality, I have sprinkled this act of Obeah into many of my posts. It is prevalent in ALL cultures and within all societies, and it does not even have to be lovers that do it to each other. A parent can bind a child unto him or her for control, friends in platonic relations can do this for their own reasons, making the person a slave to them and forcing loyalty. It is that serious because it does exist. People do it quite often and in a certain culture (do not ask me which one, I will not reveal it) mothers train their daughters to find good suitors and instruct them on what to do or what to take from them so that this person can be bound to them forever. Trick worse than obeah is a post which I can actually say now, that I was tricked and tied up by the man’s parents. I was innocent to the fact, but because I am no ordinary human being, my non-physicals set me free. There was once a church I attended that the mother, you can find her here, (I have really written a lot of posts, imagine that? and I can not type, oonuh clap mi!) tied up all her attendees. I think I wrote that story here, but I cannot remember the title of the post. They cleaned her house, washed her clothes, did all her bidding. I exposed her unintentionally by me, but intentionally through spirit, and there began one of the greatest spiritual fights of my life, read it a part of it here.
I have never experienced slavery. What I mean by this is I have always been in control of my life, except the trick post, which only lasted months. I am an Aries and very spontaneous, I do not know how to dance to the beat of others. This is just how I am made up naturally, but there are some people who are easily led. Some who are not confident, some lacking love, and some who are too curious. Emotions, especially low level emotions, like being sensitive, low self esteem, extreme shyness, feeling insecure, all of this stems from fear, even rage which finds its root within fear somewhere deep in the sub-conscious and so when it becomes too much, rage erupts. All these things make a person vulnerable or susceptible to people leading them astray physically and spiritually.
Physically, all a person has to do is find the right words to say to anyone afflicted with these low-level emotions and be able to manipulate them. But Spiritually, it is the opening of the way for spirits to enter and dwell, so the tying situation is able to work because already pre-existing in the victim was some low-level emotion, either the ones mentioned above, or others, including ego, and then some.
Tying and binding through the act of Obeah/Voodoo/Juju/Witchcraft (please note that not all Obeah works are bad, and Vodoun is a wonderful religion) can be done in many ways, and of course in the linked posts, I have explained the symptoms to how it affects others. It can be cleared, but often times it depends on how long the person has been under the spell and how the binding was done. In the post with my father’s story, linked above, because he was never spiritually cleared of what was done to him, (he just left the woman) he suffered with his stomach for years. This resulted in him having three operations due to an ulcer he developed through the obeah. This is how it manifested physically. Obeah can manifest as sickness.
If it (the tying) was done through food (thou shalt not be nyammy nyammy, watch who you eat from) then as a spiritualist, I will sigh with relief because this is the easiest to pull. If done with sex fluids, the work becomes a little harder, but can still be handled. However, there are some binding jobs that give the spiritualist a headache to remove, yes, a competent spiritualist can do it, but it would be like a science project. I have been there so I know.
What is important for you to know, however, is the effect it has on the victim (not to mention the ones who love and care for him or her) while under bondage, especially the longer they stay under the influence. The wicked baby father (I have written about him many times search the blog if interested) is still affected by what his evil woman had done to him, and they have been separated for years now. When I first went “out” to see a spiritualist at my mother’s suggestion that he was under a spell. The “madda woman” (spiritualist) told me not to argue with him. She told me this was important. I must not quarrel at all with him. It was hard for me not to do so, and she was not like me who likes to explain metaphysics to people (teach) so I had no idea why I should keep the peace.
However, as I came into myself, I learned the reason. Your voice to the ears of a person tied will have the opposite effect. Because the work that was done is supposed to cover the offender in such a way that anyone who tries to wake the tied person up, or argues with him for his own good, or tries to show him his behavior, will make him begin to hate that person, and only draw closer to the offender, believing the offender is his only friend.
If you have someone who you may suspect is in a situation like this, tied up or under bondage, deal gently with him or her. Do not accuse them. Use wisdom because whatever has affected him will make him see you as the enemy instead. He is now under that person’s control and influence. He will cherish his controller and hate you, even if you are his mother. Often times, the obeah worker will put the family under a spell also so that if you beg them for help in telling their son or daughter that something is wrong, they will turn against you and turn your own words toward you, believing that you must be the offender.
You can seek help on their behalf, but just keep it to yourself, and try not to be offended too much by his actions, although it is very hard, believe me, it hurts like holy hell.
There are times when the victim will come to his senses and may beg you for help, keep in mind that he does have his own spirit which will be fighting for him. So at times he may recover for a bit and become aware that he is sitting outside in front of a wash pan filled with the Obeah worker’s dirty drawers (panties), scrubbing them like ah him name Dorothy, oonuh nuh laugh ah true ting.
I once had a client who married a woman who he shared fantasies with, thus making them compatible. But he told me that when they would go to parties, she with her friends and he with his, he would look up, and their eyes would meet, and instantly he knew he had to go and stand where she was and not move for the night. He was her puppet. He said he realized that he looked like a fool, he felt like one even, but he could not help himself. He and her has since died, she went first, but she had tied him up so badly, he followed her thereafter. When he found out what she did, he hated her, but loved her same way. He wanted revenge, but worried about her as he swore against her name. He cried often and was ashamed of who he had become under her control. She had never relented, she kept on renewing the work often so his leash was tight. I pulled it and she found out about me and sent out a threat. She searched for me high and low. I wonder what she would have tried if she knew where I was. I waited for her (mi ah bad gal from birth).
He was supposed to come back to me for the final removal of what was in him, but he got deported. She followed him, but he still managed to stay away. Shortly after she died, he followed three years after. He never did finish his work with me. I will continue his story in another post.
The victims can even become suicidal, knowing inwardly what is happening but can not do anything about it. One common thing with them is stomach problems, regardless of the method used for the tying. The belly swelling is also a sign, not with everyone, but with some. Men can experience impotency also, and women can become very submissive likewise the men.
Always remember this is never the way to go. It has great repercussions that the perpetrators can never escape. It places a very strong generational curse onto whomever practiced such evil.
I could go on and on, but I notice deep posts is boring for you guys here, so let me stop.
Question: When my client followed the woman in death, can you guess why?
And as strong as he was to know he was tied and seek help, why did the tying job go through so strongly in his case?
