The Power of a Curse

The_Coming_Curse_by_MistaBobby

Recently quite a few people have ask me if I believe in curses or do I think they are cursed? So I am taking this opportunity to write and share my views on curses and their power. I will share my own view, so please just take what resonates with you and leave the rest behind.

How does one start to grow a sense of medicine within when one is part of the busy modern world where vanity, achievement, money and brain washing media seem to be more relevant?

The First Step.

I am a spiritual being living a human experience like all who read this article. I have found a way to manage my past traumas that work for me and this is the path I offer guidance in.

So lets begin by sharing with you what I believe happens when trauma occurs.

Trauma: a deeply distressing or disturbing experience.

You have heard of what they call Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This is the termed used after someone has come through a traumatic situation and is left deeply disturbed and rattled from it. They feel they have no way of escape as it feels as if the trauma lives…
