Curses…the Truth…

Ok, here’s the scoop…after receiving a record number of phone calls and visits from clients freaking out and ready to jump from the nearest tall building, I have to say something…again.

Is everybody listening?

You are NOT cursed. You have NOT been cursed from birth. There is NO black cloud hanging over your head or anyone else’s for that matter. There are NO demons attached to you, your kids, your family, your relatives – living or deceased. There is no curse. THERE IS NO CURSE.

The only thing you have been cursed with is having fallen prey to a despicable scammer whom you call thinking they are an honest person when in fact they are not. Sure, they may be able to tell you things about yourself. Not all psychics are honest just as not all of a plethora of other so-called “professionals” out there today are guaranteed to be honest. You have to be discerning. And sometimes one does not even have to be psychic to be able to spot the problems within a person who is just looking for answers to the questions of their lives. The simple fact that you are reaching out to a psychic – a complete stranger – and willing to pay a huge amount of money so that they can tell you what you want to hear is a sure sign that you are in a vulnerable state. People needing answers are often gullible and impatient. They cannot wait to calm down and think about what they are doing. Enter the scammer. He or she can smell you right over the phone.

What to do? First off, take some time to think. Is this really the work of the devil or some unscrupulous in-law? Or are you having what everyone has once in a while…a bad day. Are you frantically flipping through the phone book or screeching across the web at the speed of sound looking at psychic after psychic? Well…stop that. If it is that big of an emergency, chances are that you need another kind of professional….like a doctor or a police officer. Take a deep breath. If it is not a life or death emergency then just sleep on it. And if all else fails and you truly need to consult a psychic, then have one referred from someone you trust. If that is not possible, then take the time to do your homework and check them out thoroughly. If they don’t have a decent web page, if they haven’t been in business long, if they cannot provide references, if they are reluctant to give you their full name, if they have a pirate name like Madam Zorba or Psychic Patty, if they can’t give you one straight fee that is realistic or if your hinky meter is going off at the first sound of their voice…then DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM!

Plain and simple.

Sure…there are folks out there that specialize in going through the act of “cursing” people for money. And there are others out there that think if they light a candle or swear to the devil that they want someone cursed, uneducated folk think that just because these people engage in such activity that they are successful or even good at what they are doing. This is NOT Hogworts. This is the real world here, folks. The energy is subtle and takes many, many days and months and even years to be shifted into the right directions using metaphysical skills for good or not so good. “Work” has to be carried out on a regular basis. You mother-in-law or ex-husband probably does not have the time, knowledge or skill to every try to pull something like this off. And if they try to hire someone, do you really think that they are going to be willing to pay up the $100’s or even $1000’s of dollars to keep this kind of work going? Because believe me. Going through the process of cursing someone is not an easy deal. Besides, most times, just the mere mention of curses is all that a bitter person has to utter and their victim’s own mind can amplify that suggestion, working that person up into a froth of panic and fear, thus doing all the work for them. C’mon people. Think…

Jesus said…

“As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.”~ John 9:1-3

So you see…there is no curse hanging over anyone’s head from birth. We make our own way. We are all born clean and without sin and without curses. We choose the paths in life that we take. No one has control over us with magic and curses like every fraud would have you believe. (Oh were it that easy! The world would be full of lottery winners and have a babe on each arm if it were that easy…)  And sometimes life is not all rainbows and unicorns. But sometimes it is. It just all depends on how you live your life. God gave us free will. We have choices to make. Sometimes our better judgment goes right out the window – we end up in an abusive relationship and we make a call at a vulnerable moment and a scammer sucks us in whole and spits out the bones – but it is up to us to stop and think and use our heads. After getting ripped off by a fraud, we scream to the heavens, “Why me?” But if we don’t stop and take control of our own actions and lives – probably the reason that we are making that call in the first place – then we are just sitting ducks, vulnerable, with “Rip Me Off” tattoos inked across our foreheads.

Remember…take your time. Do some homework. Get references. And above all…you are not cursed. Really, you are not.

I leave you now with a little gift in gratitude for having indulged me in this little rant, which has me sounding like a chastising old grandmother. But I just love you all and want for you all to be happy.

Until next time…

A black cat for Good Luck!

I now have a totally new shopping experience set up for you on my main website that is planted upon my server.  WooCommerce was just not my cuppa tea. But that’s ok. It was a learning experience and it really showed me a lot. But now it’s time to get back to business! Please visit my shop at  Gypsy’s Bazaar! I will be adding things on a weekly basis as time allows. If there is anything that you are looking for in particular please do not hesitate to give me a call at or drop me an email! 🙂
