In this post I will attempt to show you (real students) how the practical part of spirituality, healing, cleansing or clearing works – or manifests. I always find it best to teach in story form such as with the the story of Frankie and Mawga Dog, (read here). However, with this post I will give a few scenarios and an exercise for your better understanding. If you have been reading my blog and learning anything at all then the exercise should not be too difficult. This blog is a school of life. For those who are willing to participate, do so, because there will be more to learn as we get deep into the conversations of what so many do not know or what so many have no idea of.
I implore you to try the exercise if you are a student of spirituality or a person who has ever thought of or has already sought the help of a spiritualist.
Some time ago a dear client of mine had been having some issues. With me as her support, she conquered her enemy. However, she still struggled financially, trying to rise up after the enemy’s attempts. She is in no way suffering, but things that she wanted to do in order to get her life back on track seemed far off after being attacked spiritually.
I had done divination for her and told her that her destiny had it written that she was to be financially rich (there are many kinds of riches and many ways to get there). She had been making attempts with her work to make some money, but most of her approach seemed to fail. She saw some signs and would text me about them, telling me that she noticed that whenever she was about to make a deal, these signs would show themselves to her. When I checked, I saw that the enemy was again pursuing her.
I was not worried as I dialed her number to tell her while still before my oracle, because I had seen the solution and was ready to prepare it, but as she picked up the phone and I told her, she went off the rails. She screamed and hollered. It was very disturbing and quite disheartening for me to hear. She threw a tantrum. I insisted that she calm down and she responded to the threat of the enemy rising again.
“When will they stop? I want my life back!” She cried. This was in between heart wrenching tears. But I had simply told her that “they“, the enemies, will never stop. Such is the will of life.
When I ended the call, I began to realise that truly, many people did not understand spirituality and how it worked. Enemies are boundless. You conquer one, and another will replace him.
This woman’s destiny lied in wealth, but her current circumstance made this difficult to believe. There is no person who has great power or wealth that has no enemies. The climb to become “somebody” is paved with problems, sorrows, tears, pain and woes. Even if you are “nobody” in your eyes, you’re one step ahead of someone else, and that, to them, should not be. Thus, an enemy has been made. If you were not great or destined for it, the need for enemies is pointless. Consider them somewhat of a revelation that you are no ordinary person. Conquer them and continue your journey to discovering why they appeared in the first place.
Although disappointed, I understood the woman’s reaction and so I went ahead and did the solution to free her from yet another blockage. The next morning she dreamt of herself riding a beautiful horse. It was the dream of freedom.
If you can think for yourself for just a moment, you can decipher this woman’s “problem”. Remember that the oracle said her destiny is wealth. But at the moment, she had no money at all. At every turn she found a blockage, I would prepare a solution to remove it, and she can move a little further freely just before another blockage appears. Why?
If you haven’t figured it out already, the reason for it is because she is indeed destined to be rich, but to get there, she must clear the road. How? The spiritual solutions she seeks. For every blockage comes a solution, and for every solution, the path becomes clearer and the destiny achieved.
White and Black are shades of life. From them if we are able to see, we will make out colors, these colors are our pathway, our life plan in plain view. I speak in metaphors, I pray you get it.
How Practical Spirituality Works:
If you have a problem and you seek a competent spiritualist for assistance and they do what they can to clear you, reassuring you that all will be well from now on, this does not mean that struggles will never come at you again. That is a power that does not belong to the human being. Challenges are inevitable.
However, if the work was to remove the struggling and let your life become a little easier, you may find that things begin to move, but you may have it in your mind that you are supposed to become a millionaire by tomorrow morning (some people are like this) but this may not be written in your destiny. Wealth may be there, but the time is what you may not know.
So although what the spiritualist did has worked wonders because you are now able to move your market, if you find that you are just able to pay bills and nothing else, there may be many reasons for this that may have nothing to do with obeah or enemies although there is one lurking in every corner.
Your written destiny may have a clause within it unbeknowst to you. In that clause you must meet some hardship in order to keep you humble, perhaps you have a great work to do on the realm, but a lot of money will change the meekness within your spirit therefore taking you off your life’s course.
It is the persons Ori (the head or inner consciousness) that allows for his suffering in the first place. It is up to our Ori in assisting us to find our path when we come to this chaotic world. So if we ought to find ourselves, our power, our destiny, if we ought to be great or have some influence on a group of people even our own family, our own spirit will allow the obeah to take effect. They will let the enemy through the gate, they will even thwart the enemy to fight us. Your wails and anger may be painful, but it will lead you to seek answers, and the seeking of assistance is the start of an entirely new beginning, the beginning of your path. All the battle takes is a little endurance.
So if it were told to you that you were to fall and break your leg, but the spiritualist did something to remove that, you may still twist your ankle, or even hurt your toe. This is apart of your destiny and must be played out regardless of the spiritualist’s intervention. He only got to intervene because your guides allowed it and sent you to seek solution. Do you complain of a sprained ankle or stubbing your toe as opposed to a broken leg?
Even if someone has sent death after you, but you found solution and was assured that you will live, death will still challenge you, it will. Death walks with a certain number and what this means is that that energy is allowed to keep trying until that number is reached. If he is unsuccessful upon the last try, then he must leave unless sent on errand again.
What you must understand is that spiritual intervention changes the impact of a blow. The spiritualist is allowed to intercede, but the malevolent energy still has a job to do, although the spiritualist has altered how the job is carried out.
Yet this is not always the case. Some things in life are unalterable and some things are. In cases where it is written within your destiny for you to experience these things, you will find the above explanation to be so. However, there are times when someone can simply walk into a bad energy, or pick up a trap laid for someone else, this happens daily to many. These things, if we are able to detect that something has really gone wrong and seek help, will be moved away by the knowledgeable elder and you will not experience its after effects. One is written within your destiny for you to find your path and another is simply energy you walked into that did not belong to you. The one with it written in his destiny MUST experience the after affect even after it is cleared, because this is shaping and molding who you ought to become, apart of your life programming. The other is something that interferes with your life throwing everything off balance, like a virus to a computer; but if care is taken, there will be no after shocks.
There are a number of ways for spiritual work to manifest and understanding this is crucial. Unfortunately, good things often come cloaked. Try finding them in the exercise below.
Try answering the questions in the comments first before clicking “Reveal Answer”. Based on the post, try to solve the problem below on your own as it will help you solve mysteries of your own life. Challenge yourself.
1) When a young lady faces hardships, she often wails and laments. She wonders why must these things happen to her? She wishes death would just take her away, that is the only way out of this difficulty. She seeks spiritual help as she has heard that this option can help her life. However, through divination she is told something she hadn’t expected: Her prayer had been answered. She was marked for an early death. In her distress, she sent out a signal and the Universe heard. Her family had come for her.
She asked the diviner if anything could be done to stop this? Because while she really did cry often for death, in reality she was not ready to die, but had only felt so when life’s stress became too unbearable. She was schooled by the diviner that her tears and heart wrenching cry had spun the universe to allow her spiritual family to assist her in removing her and should sending them away work, she should be careful whenever she became upset or tired of her life again. She was told when to return to the diviner for work to be done so that she would be allowed to stay on this earth.
She returned and the work was done successfully. She felt free and safe.
However, several weeks later she experienced two car accidents. Terrified, she called the diviner, wondering if the spiritual work had even worked at all!
Question A): If the diviner had done work to remove the looming death from the young lady, why did she still experience two car accidents? Did the diviner make a mistake? Was he not competent? Is the lady’s death still promised?
Question B): Why did death answer her prayers in distress but not others who have done the same?
Question C): Suppose several weeks later, the car accidents had not occurred at all, but the young lady discovered that her grandfather, a man who had loved her dearly, has passed away. Would this have been a mere coincidence? Or is it somehow connected to her own problem? What happened?
Bonus Question: Why did the accident happen more than once?
