This is only partly true. A curse begins with the exchange of energy. It is best to think of a curse like an airborn virus, for it works to tear down your immune system and weaken your defenses. When a curse is not properly treated, it grows to infect all parts of the mind, body, and soul. The best way to combat a curse is through prayer and meditation.
Curses can come from other people or they can come from other realms.
In many cases, they come from people’s auric fields. Every living being on earth has an aura that vibrates at a different frequency. These auras have individual bands of energy that pulsates much like a heart beat. When we interact with other people, our auras merge, and we began to exchange energy (information). The energy could be good, or it could be bad. Bad energy can be transferred in forms of a curse and it works in two ways. It can either take your energy and or dump bad energy into your auric fields.
Just imagine a curse being like a leech that latches onto your body and sucks on your blood.
Or a fly that lands on you and regurgitates on your skin. Curses can be exchanged unintentionally and intentionally. People who are well versed in the dark arts, such as brujeria and witchcraft are able to work with this kind of energy. However, most people are unaware that they are carrying a curse, or that they are spreading it to other people. Curses can be exchanged from person to person, from group to group, to family to family. The energy is malignant and so strong, that it binds people together in the worse way.
We can see this with spousal abuse and relationships that are completely chaotic.
Couples cannot pull away from one another; no matter how hard they try. Curses work in other ways where it causes interference and you can’t discern your own thoughts and emotions from others. We see this happening a lot in cults and in families that are highly dysfunctional. In these cases, the curses are so strong that people no longer have contact with their true self. Their sense of intuition is gone and they are exposed to corrupt “crazy” leaders who force them to drink the poison kool-aid. Curses cause us to abuse ourselves. Curses are commonly inflicted during times of trauma and many people cannot heal, because the curse forces them to relive and suffer from the traumatic event over and over again. Others carry a curse of unworthiness and invite themselves to be abused and mistreated by others.
How do we combat curses?
We need to make sure that our souls (immune systems) are strong. We do this by meditating and developing our intuition to know who to interact with and who not to interact with. If we feel like we have been cursed, we need to sit and pray. Prayers to Obatala are great because he can help us clean negative energy. However, the process of identifying a curse can be extremely painful, and curing a deeply seated curse can be an arduous task. But, with faith and support from our spiritual community, we can overcome anything.
