FROM NOTHING TO SOMETHING: HOW TWO STARS CAN EXCHANGE

(‘Glory, star, and destiny’ are all the same things and will be used interchangeably throughout this post). Growing up as a child in Jamaica I remember some warnings my mother gave to us. The first warning we had even gotten a beating for was: “Never eat from anyone.” 

The other one (among many) was “Do not allow anyone to touch you in your head or comb your hair unless I approve.” Most Jamaican children received these warnings from their parents. But even as a child, if I sat down with my legs stretched out and someone walked over me, something about this would make me angry. Somewhere deep within, I knew that stepping across another persons body was not a good thing to do.

As I grew and came into consciousness, I realized that even someone resting themselves on your shoulder, even in a loving way, is not good at all. It is symbolism of holding someone down and making them stagnant (however it does not mean that the person doing it has this intention).

All of this that I have stated here can be a negative towards the person that it is being done to in more ways than one. One of the ways that can harm a person for the rest of their lives is having a persons glory (or star/destiny) switched.

Now, I am not telling you that every time you eat from someone, or someone crosses over you, or someone rests their arm on your shoulder, that your destiny is being tampered with. No. What I am telling you is that people can use “style” by having loaded themselves ritualistically to steal your star, then they can do any of the above combinations as trickery. What happens as a result is that person begin to rise while the other becomes stagnant. This is a case of glory exchange, where one person steals the bright star of another and hands them their own ill luck in return.

However, there are also some people with naturally malevolent thoughts and feelings who can also affect a persons destiny even unintentionally. These dark thoughts can be projected, even unintentionally, onto another person. Such as the case where my older sister complimented my skin while curling my hair, and somehow immediately after that statement, the iron fell right on my leg, marring the skin she had just “complimented”.

Jamaican people used to say that if someone gives them clothes, the person has given them “dem wear an’ lef'” — in other words, their hand-me-downs. Both descriptions does not sound good to the ear as it all implies poverty. Giving away ones clothing is never good and accepting is also not good.

The giver should not use what he has sweat in and give to another person, no matter the family connection. And the taker should not accept the hand-me-down.

This is yet another way of removing goodness that one has brought from Heaven with them. The giver would have given away his goodness not even realizing that this is what he has done.

Doing this is a “sweat exchange” no matter if the clothes has been cleaned. The word “sweat” is put in quotations because it is not literal sweat I speak of. Here, “sweat” means energy transference.

This is how it works:

Barbara has a wedding gown. She has been married for 10 years. Nancy, her sister, is now engaged to be married and so Barbara now decides to lend Nancy her wedding gown. Barbara’s marriage is OK. It is loving but there are small problems, as usual, within their new family… or perhaps in the back of Barbara’s mind, she made a mistake getting married.

However, because of her religion or culture, she must remain married. Yet the feeling of unfulfillment persists. But now she hands her wedding gown, which represents her marriage and all that she is, to Nancy. Nancy now marries the love of her life wearing her dear sister’s wedding gown. However, a year into Nancy’s marriage, Nancy and her husband separates and are heading towards divorce. All of this came through energy transference of this one wedding gown passing along the unfulfillment of Barbara’s life, which she has kept hidden inside of her.

How? Barbara, regardless of the fact that she has not shared how she feels with anyone, the wedding gown that she wore that changed her life from a single woman to a married woman, now represents the base of her unhappiness … and now she has passed it along. Nancy, who would have had a bright future with her husband, now carries Barbara’s load. And so now, their destinies have been shared.

Now, there are many competent practical spiritualists (obeah men or women) who knows or have the knowledge of how to switch two destinies through spiritual work. This has been practiced throughout the world for ages.

There are many people sitting in high seats or high positions, but those seats do not belong to them. If you delve into their background, you might find that they had a cousin that died horribly, a sister who is crazy, or someone close to them who is stagnant in their life, while this person continues to rise higher and higher. This particular work is not only for wealth, but can also be for more life and health.

So imagine Jerry who is 30 years old but he is very ambitious and wants to accumulate as much as possible and live long to enjoy it. He now meets Anna. She is 21, young, vibrant and also ambitious. She loves him and they now form a relationship. However, Jerry now visits an Obeah man and tells him: “I want to be rich and I also want to have long life so that I can enjoy my wealth.”

The Obeah man scratches his head and tells him. “Listen, your destiny is not for wealth. However, if you are willing to do what I tell you, you can have both wealth and long life.”

The Obeah man will now tell him. “Give me 5 names of people that you are close to or people that you love.”

Without explaining his further intentions, the Obeah man will now search the 5 names and see which of them have a bright star, or bright destiny. The Obeah man now determines that Anna is destined for greatness. Wealth abound and long life is written in Anna’s star! And so he now instructs Jerry to come back to him over a course of time to perform several rituals. Perhaps, some of them involving items belonging to Anna.

However, he also instructs Jerry to marry Anna. From there, Jerry’s business begins to grow and he becomes successful and very wealthy. Anna, however, loses all drive and determination for anything. Strangely, everything she touches turns to ashes. The only money that she can spend is what her husband gives to her. Though her husband is very wealthy, she is very unhappy. Throughout her life, she is dependent on him for everything. Eventually, by the time Anna gets to 35 she becomes very ill. She battles this illness to the age of 40 where she dies.

If Anna was supposed to live to 100, those years along with the wealth she was destined for has been given over to her husband, Jerry. Although she came to the Earth with a bright star and to make an impact on the world, her star had been switched with Jerry’s. These cases are very common.

(Also I should note: The obeah man suffers no repercussion for the work he did. It is the human who has employed him that will later on feel everything he has done.)

There are times when you see wealthy people or people who seem as if they are enjoying their life in a particular way, or even some people who have outlived everyone in their family (not all cases), someone’s star/destiny has been switched.

They say this all the time within Hollywoods all over the world and celebrities who bloom while their partners or others have either died, became addicted to drugs, or simply become worthless or fall considerably in their status. Perhaps such is the case with a particular famous family?

There are many possibilities of switching or sharing destinies. It can even be from a person who makes a careless speech at the moment a malevolent being passes by. For example, a sister could lament about her own life and wonder why her younger sister’s life is so much better. She could then wish that she had her younger sister’s life instead. The malevolent being passing through can accept this utterance as a job and act on it, switching both destinies of the sisters.

A person whose destiny has been switched will be plagued by nightmares and terrible dreams that does not make them feel good. This is because this persons Ori would have been fighting for them to get their stars back. This person will feel unfulfilled most of their life or feel as if they are searching for something that they can not find.

Often times, you will see a person have some sort of diagnosis or personality disorder. These are also signs of people not aligned with their destiny. Something has been tampered with. Be careful of the person who makes your favorite dessert and brings it to you without you requesting it. Or be careful of some of your items going missing never to be found again. Watch your dreams carefully because most often when your star has been switched, your Ori will alert you.

I advise divination as much as you can from competent people to keep a watch not only over yourself, but also those you love and care for. Mothers, be careful of the child you pamper over the other.

Children are most vulnerable to glory swaps or sharing. Children born for greatness can grow up to be derelicts, prostitutes, or anything less than who they are meant to be. This was one case that I had written about before about family I knew.  A little girl saw Angels and would speak to them. Foolishly, the child’s mother told the mother of a church, not knowing this woman was wicked. The woman oohed and awed at the child’s ability and told the child’s mother to bring her to church the next day. She did as told and in the middle of the service, the mother of the church took the child from her mother’s grasp, laid the child on the ground and walked over her back and forth 3 times.

That child never spoke of Angels again. Now all grown up, she has had hundreds of boyfriends, and lives a scandalous and stagnant life that makes her mother miserable.

Exchanging glories, sharing glories, or dimming a persons star, are works that are also performed in church, not only in an obeah man’s office.

Stay prayerful and may your Heads lead you to a good place! When you pray, pray your destiny stays with you and that the light you radiate may continue to shine always.

Hi, how are you. This is an interesting piece and you’re doing a great job. This particular one kinda makes me sad though. Well, I just wanted to ask if there’s any possibility a lost star can be reclaimed plus why do I keep hearing other people’s thoughts, I can’t control it. I also pick other people emotions and energies I can literally feel a sad mans pain a horny lady’s desire a scared kids conscience I’m going nuts!………cus at the moment I think I’m in deep trouble I’d appreciate it if you could spare some of your time and shed a bit of light on this for me. Thank you.

Hi Obara. Greetings from Nigeria. I love what you do and all the advice you give. I’m 22, a student and I have been plagued with very terrible dreams. I had one a couple of months ago about a robber breaking in and stealing my jewelry (I had a necklace with ruby, sapphire and gold. The robber took the ruby, broke the sapphire in two and took it, leaving me with gold and half a sapphire). I woke up from that dream sweating profusely and feeling dread. Apart from that, I have a lot of nightmares, although they have subsided in recent times. Please I need your advice mami.

I bumped into your blog two days ago when I was desperately looking for answers to the tragedy that befell our home. I cried to God in prayer asking Him to reveal to me what it is that transpired and led to the events that started as far back as 18 years ago involving two of my brothers. Everything you wrote in this article describes my brothers but to the an even worse extent. It has been almost 18 years now since they were rendered useless to both themselves and the family. Without going into more details, I would like to be helped, I am seeking help, I need to know what happened, who put them in that situation, and how they can have their stars back. I would also like a confession from whoever is responsible for putting these orphaned boys through this hell and high water. I just need justice to be served on both sides.

Thank you for sharing this stupendous information ObaraMeji and for guidance on this critical prayer point. A whole lot to meditate and act upon.

A common idea to recover one’s stolen stars is by bathing in treated water (typically consisting of herbs). Do they work?
Could these be made by anyone for their self medication as it were?

Be continually blessed for your genuine service to the seekers.

Why are STARS associated with a human being living on the earth?

Been awhile since I’ve been active here but this is a good post Obara.

While I strongly feel this has not happened to me I strongly feel this has happened to 1 family member and I suspect 2 other family members.

It’s strange as it seems most of my life some of my afflictions seemed to have protected me. For instance, from as long as I can remember if I wasn’t familiar with someone I would not eat from them (often seen as scornful by others). Strange enough there are times I am hungry and given food and as I look on the food I suddenly feel so full that if I eat any I feel I may vomit so I just don’t eat. I used to chalk it up to gas but after reading this I begin to wonder if this is a form of protection put in place by me? Well most likely yes.

I’ve had a slight hoarding streak. So I don’t tend to give away things given to or obtained by me. It has been instilled into me for some years now to just burn my clothes and shoes. This has been so for over a decade, however, before that time I would give my clothes to charity and there were many times I would share slippers or shoes with friends. Oh damn! Though I do not think those would switch my stars. This is just a gut feeling.

Now reading the comments I saw where giving to charity is safer than someone we know so atleast in that case I can breathe a sigh of relief. But I do have another question in the form of food. What if someone gives you food and you just know it’s ominous but you go to throw it away and another person begs for it? Now you inform that person of your suspicions but they insist because they say the evil from the food was not intended for them so they are safe. My question is: Is it still safe to give that person the food?

Again, very good post. Keep doing what you doing Obara.

I can relate to this message in many ways than one. Thank you Obara.
You just summarized the story of my life in this passage extract below.

“So imagine Jerry who is 30 years old but he is very ambitious and wants to accumulate as much as possible and live long to enjoy it. He now meets Anna. She is 21, young, vibrant and also ambitious. She loves him and they now form a relationship. However, Jerry now visits an Obeah man and tells him: “I want to be rich and I also want to have long life so that I can enjoy my wealth……..
…..The Obeah man now determines that Anna is destined for greatness. Wealth abound and long life is written in Anna’s star! And so he now instructs Jerry to come back to him over a course of time to perform several rituals. Perhaps, some of them involving items belonging to Anna.
However, he also instructs Jerry to marry Anna. From there, Jerry’s business begins to grow and he becomes successful and very wealthy. Anna, however, loses all drive and determination for anything. Strangely, everything she touches turns to ashes. The only money that she can spend is what her husband gives to her. Though her husband is very wealthy, she is very unhappy. Throughout her life, she is dependent on him for everything…..”

Fortunately for me, the only difference is that, I am 38 now. I was married at 26 ,lost my husband at 37, He was 46 when he died. Before he passed on, He lost his job, wealth, things went bad for him. He became terribly ill and later passed on.
This is a real life lesson for me. I can’t even explain every detail here. Not that I am happy for loosing the father of my children but all I can say is, I am thankful to my Ori.

One thing I realised was immediately I appeased my Ori “Ibori” and my Egbe. My story changed. I wish I knew alot of things that I know now back then but then again, everything happened for a purpose and I am happy I didn’t realise the truth in the grave. I am grateful to the Almighty, my Ori, Orisa, Ancestors and Egbe for their guidance, protection and love for me. They have continued to support me even till now.

Thanks again Obara for your teachings.
More wisdom and blessings I wish for you and for myself too.
Ase.

Wow…this one gave me chills. Two questions:

1. In my attempts at being charitable, I have given away my clothing. Should I cease doing so or can I have a competent spiritualist “clean” the items of my energy before I donate them?

2. Does the same concept apply to me giving away my leftover food to the homeless since I have had some of it?

3. You have taught that we plan our destinies before coming from the spirit realm. When someone’s star is stolen, is it ever the case that they wrote that into their destiny?

Thanks Obara!

Gosh I had goosebumps reading through this post. Mostly because, being Nigerian, I have heard of switching glories/destinies but never really had it explained like this.

I sometimes suspect being a victim of such because of the stagnancy I’ve experienced/still experiencing, but with the signs you have mentioned, I am even more weary.
I’ve had lots of people jealous and hating me since childhood, clothes & underwears go missing mysteriously etc. Then the Nightmares! Oh the nightmares!! These all happened in my earlier years and life just went downhill from there on.
That being said, I have been warned and protected many many times by my non physicals and Ori, for which I am incredibly grateful. But I still can’t help but wonder if there’s something else working against me. Seems like I’m due for another reading o, Obara!

Another interesting thing is, I know someone (a former boss) who, when he was ready to get married, took 3 names of potential wives to a spiritualist to ‘check’ for him. He was told to pick the one who had “the brightest star”. He indeed married her and they are still married. But that man’s life took a very good turn after that (money wise) while the woman became like a zombie to him… The person who took him to the spiritualist told me all these after they fell out. Lol..

Infact eh, OM you just made a lot of things clear (as per usual). Thank you so so much. You are saving lives!!!

This is so powerful, we just have to learn to be aware of those around us and no foolishly openly trust any and everybody. many of what I have read so far on your blogs are very revealing and I must say I can relate to many based on the experiences I have encountered…I have never met any one who teaches these things except you and can I truly say that I am willing to learn and take notes from all you have been relating to us. Thank you Obara…I know I was led by my guide to you.

It’s like you read a part of my thought. Though I was looking at it from another angle. You hear stuff like this all the time about badminding others and instead of bettering themselves they use whatever means necessary to bring down others.

Were I to go to a spiritualist for betterment I sure as hell will reject the switching stars method. I’m a bit different from the average person though as I do not take that which is rightfully mine or that which is free game. So with that in mind I’m the kind of person that, if it’s to gain money, to ask for inspiration and drive to use my attributes to allow me to somehow make that money; if it’s for power, then I would ask that I am able to find a reliable network of like-minded individuals; if it’s for long life, then that I make decisions that will lead to such a lifespan but if it is that I am not allowed that then to be guided to life of minimal negativities within my given lifespan.

Unfortunately the world is filled with persons that prefer a path that brings down others, the “crab in a barrel” mentality.

I don’t really like people hug me and they usually cuss say me not loving. Which isn’t true! I just feel weird when people hug me.

EXCELLENT POST Obara. It reminds me of how you always say that all things in this world are spiritual whether or not we know or believe it. I see that it is symbolism. A few questions though:

1) As far as the “sweat exchange” example, would that remove the unfulfillment from Barbara’s life or is it just passing something on like a virus.

2) Would that mean someone who has things going good for them should NOT give away any articles of clothing? For example a prominent artist who has a favorite pair of pants that he always wears when creating paintings?

3) Does the person who initiated the destiny switch also take on the misfortunes that was destined for the wealthy person they’ve switched with?
