BLACK AND WHITE OBEAH – DOES IT EXIST?

This is the same as asking about black and white magic. I have always been a little unnerved by the word "magic". It is a term a real occultist or practitioner do not identify with. Why? Because upon hearing this word, regardless of book meaning, the mind goes to the practical magician on a stage who will saw a person in half or pluck silver coins from behind your ears, and spiritism or traditionalism is no way at all like this. The only trickery in spiritual work is the incompetent worker who says he can when he really cannot. For knowledgeable elders the work is real and effective. He or she who are endowed with great spiritual knowledge knows that he or she is only a vessel, a container of what he or she holds, and there will come a time when he will have to release its content to another for the work to continue. This knowledge is liken unto a crown and only the worthy will be chosen to carry it on. But... Good witch, bad witch? Is there such a thing? Good magic, bad magic, white witch, black witch - what does it all mean? To be honest, it really means nothing. There is no good and there exists no bad, there is just a state of being, whether in human form or the void. Let me explain. ...

A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF TYING AND BINDING-AN EPIDEMIC IN EVERY CULTURE

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. ...

MONEY RITUAL, MONEY MEDICINES, AND WHAT HAPPENS

There is a saying that goes 'money is the root evil,' and it may be so, but many can not deny the fact that money brings joy and pleasure. Someone corrected me one day and said 'The love of money is the root of all evil,' and of course I think this is the truth (read this post). There are things that many people will do for money and of course with money, often times fame and power comes. The thing is, the search for money (especially for those who were not born into it) can be a very rough road and there are times when people want to take shortcuts to get to the top or to have more than or to acquire the power that they seek and desire. Spirituality will come in very handy for those seeking material wealth or a quick leap to the top of the money tree. This is where money rituals becomes important, but many people who go into this type of practice or covenant often times do not understand or realize the repercussions that comes with it... ...

ONE MAN’S TALE OF OBEAH AND HIS JOURNEY TO HEALING

When I wrote the post Who Do You Trust In This World? I told you all that the person for whom this happened to would send his own post in. I'm very happy that he did so because my philosophy as you all know is that we teach each other from our experiences. His is quite a journey and although there will be a part 2 to his story, he still had to carve the story down in order for it not to be too lengthy. People be wise and as I always teach, be present in your lives. ...

WAYS THAT PEOPLE USE TO STEAL YOUR GLORY-CHANGE YOUR DESTINY

One of my new bloggers sent in some topics she believed that I should write on. In all there were five, the title of this post being the fifth, I chose to write on this topic first. I am a positive thinker, although I am a spiritualist/traditionalist, I have always had the belief that I will always overcome any problem, I am innately made up this way. My belief is that "no weapon that is formed against me will ever prosper". I believe this because I know that I have found my calling and I am doing my work, so the Universe will always guide and protect me and those who I love (my children). ...

SYMPTOMS OF TYING/BINDING A PERSON THROUGH THE ACT OF OBEAH

Good day to all. I have been doing some technical work to the blog and this is why I have not been posting everyday. Writing takes time to do and I can not post when everything is in action according to my assistant. However, today I will do a short post on the symptoms of binding or "tying" as we call it in Jamaica, in other words how to know when someone has tied a person onto them. This topic is important because it happens so often and affects so many lives. It is a horrible thing to do to anyone, and it interferes with the destiny of both the one who did the tying job and the one who gets tied. Why would someone want to bind someone to them? I just could never understand it, but I will tell you how to know when it has happened. ...

HOW OBEAH WORKS – THE STORY OF FRANKIE AND MAWGA DOG

When I was a small girl living in Jamaica, I remember a woman who was the daughter of my mother's friend. The friend's name was Miss Brown and her daughter's name was Marie. People called her mad Marie. Jamaicans are very descriptive when it comes to naming people, they do it according to their looks (Black Gal Marlene, Fatty Blossom), profession (Cookie or Tailor, Gunman, Thief), or even how they act, even down to an ailment. If Jerry broke his legs, he would be called Bruk foot Jerry. Mad Marie resembled a younger and slightly lighter in complexion Nina Simone. She used to be a teacher, my mother told us, and from what people said, someone obeahed her because of how fast she was excelling in life. This is what Jamaican people call, bad mind. She was a victim of obeah because others thought she was not deserving of who she was, her education and her god given talents. Whatever they did to her by way of obeah, it attacked her sanity, rendering her insane according to her actions. I remember once, while sitting on the veranda with my mother and her friend Miss Ruth, Mad Marie had came through our gate. ...

WALK AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT

This week while teaching the online class, I went into memory of a friend I had long time ago. For the purpose of anonymity I will call her Doris. I have recounted her story here within a post before, but as it relates to the point of this story, I will retell it. The memory came back as I was telling class about how in life one thing affects the other, mostly unbeknownst to us. What one person does affects everybody else, this is the connection we all have as human beings, or I should say one of them. We should be wise to this and pay attention. Well as the story goes Doris and I met up at a friends house an older woman we will call Shirley. We all went to the same church and often times would meet at my older friends home after church to eat, and shoot the breeze. This particular day, we sat in her kitchen while she cooked, laughing and talking as usual. My older friend was a peaceful, nice, very loving woman, while Doris was half human, half she demon, though she had her fun and funny side, I liked her, hellish as she was, lol. I liked her because of this particular trait, her wickedness, yes I did. ...
