I realize I’ve been on a bit of a rampage lately about spirits, nothing to be afraid of, etc. I’ve written posts before about negative energy and how it is a “necessary evil” so to speak and to trust your gut when another person’s energy doesn’t feel right.
I am not taking back any information I’ve given you on not fearing the spirit world or crossing over. Because I believe the spirit world is safe and loving. But here in this life there are forces which can and will lead you astray and could have a deep impact on your eternity. These forces are dark, negative, and in opposition to the Divine Universe, Great Spirit, God, Angels, the animals and their spirits, basically all positive, loving energy. These spirits do not have your best interest at heart and are here only to keep perspectives in balance while giving you choices. Yes, they have a mission to carry out so we should not hate them, but we should question their influence in our individual space.
How do you know if an energy is a dark force and that maybe you should avoid it? It’s much like when another person’s energy doesn’t resonate with you. The dark, negative energy will feel very “off”. And, the actual energy may be disguised as a person or it may present as a ritual, an action, or a gut feeling which just doesn’t make sense. Also, this is totally different from when you are growing spiritually and intellectually and have merely stretched yourself outside your comfort zone. Negative, dark forces don’t want you to evolve intellectually or spiritually. I’ve compiled a list of warning signs to look for if you are feeling uncomfortable with an energy.
For starters, the person, ritual, action, circumstance, event, etc., will just feel “off”.
You may feel extremely fatigued, queasy, or just plain sick.
You may feel as though you’re suddenly involved in something “wrong”.
The event, circumstance, ritual, or contact with the person may cause you to be confused, disoriented and have difficulty concentrating on normal routines and activities.
You may become forgetful and possibly have blocks of missing time.
If a person is asking you to be involved in a group, organization or event where you are to be totally self-centered, selfish and always think only of yourself and never put anyone else’s needs before your own, this is not a positive energy place.
These are just a few of the ways negative energies manifest in the world around us and present themselves to us. My advice is, if it is outside your normal activities, if you are questioning anything about the person, event or activity, or if you are uneasy and just plain uncomfortable, at least ask questions, many questions until you are at ease. If the answers don’t put you at ease, don’t do it. Period.
If you have questions about this blog, this subject, think maybe you are being influenced by negative energy or are being asked to join in something that doesn’t feel right to you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help you sort it out.
Finally, I want to end this post with a side note, what many well-meaning Christians and other strict religious organizations call Witchcraft, Wiccan, Pagan, Druid, etc., is not connected to or associated with any negative forces or worship. They are misunderstood and mislabeled. I will probably write a post about them in the near future. But I reiterate, they are not evil or bad and do not worship dark forces.
