lack of luck
« on: July 28, 2014, 03:45:44 PM »

Merry meet again. Im Leryssa. I am on my phone so i hope this isnt too difficult a read... I would lile to talk about luck, or rather the lack of luck ive been experiencing lately. I know there are several people who constantly think negatively about me, one of which im concerned may have 'hexed' me because she has previously mentioned playing with dark arts..

I was told moonstone may help? And i am already aware i need to protect myself with a bubble but im not good at that so any advice is welcome.

There is at lease four extremely negative people against me. Oh. And i had frozen people and negativity out of my life during Junes full moon, but recently it melted and i have not had a chance to redo it..

I really wish someone would pay me every time we hear this, I would be comfortably well off by now.
                                                             No offense meant
 
Firstly it is highly unlikely that anyone has hexed you.
Secondly anyone can say they have "played" with the dark arts.
Thirdly try to think about this, their power is your belief.
 
It's not a common thing to be cursed or hexed, it is merely a scare tactic carried out by those trying to look intimidating. Rarely is this the case.
 
You don't "play" with the dark arts. There is too much to know before you can dabble with what is considered dark. Magick is Magick, it doesn't differentiate, like electricity is electricity, it's neither bad nor good, it merely depends on what you do with it. Too curse someone is a very involved process because there are too many possible comebacks that the practitioner would have to take account of, it may well backfire.... what then?!
 
"Their power is your belief", Think about that for a moment, they only have power over you because you believe them and you are allowing them to have that power.
 
Often what you find is that when things go wrong and we believe we have been "hexed", we are actually hexing ourselves. Sub-consciously you are now looking for things to go wrong, and that is exactly what will happen. It's like if you have a particular brand of car, you'll see the same type of car everywhere you go. Why? because it is forefront in your mind. Those cars were always there, you just didn't notice them before.
 
The chances are that you are having a spell of bad luck, as we all do. It doesn't mean someone has cursed you because that bad luck is not going away. Good luck is actually rarer than bad luck, it's just life, and the way the cards are dealt to us.
 
YES you must practice and improve your shielding skills, they do help to protect you from negativity. We all do it and it helps far more than you realise.
 
Final word; Take back your own power over yourself, and keep practicing your shielding, it does get easier.

No offence taken.

Hex or not, I've slowly gotten worse and worse luck over the last nine months. Or you could bring it back further if you want. I don't consider my husband kicking my child and I out as bad luck seeing as he was abusive and a terrible role model for my child.. I did have to move in with my parents, and they had to move five times in the last two years, and because of the divorce, I could not go with them the last three times as I am bound to live within certain counties. (they moved two counties outside my perimeter)

The car (I was lucky to get) started having issues, and I had to stop working because of it. I was able to use my car a few months for groceries, but because I had to stop working I had to rely on child support for gas. Finally, the car got too far gone to use and I parked it at my boyfriends mother's house because my apartment complex has a wonderful relationship with the police. Which is awesome except the tags were almost out in my car and because I wasn't using it/couldn't afford, I didn't renew. And I never had enough money to transfer the title into my name.

My purse was stolen. I am the most careful person with my belongings. This had never happened before. I had $400 equipment my boyfriend needed for work, and my only set of car keys among other things.. On a different note, I lost my cell phone. Completely unrelated. Again, I am extremely careful with my belongings. My phones work well past their contract due date. I do not crack them, or drop them in water, and I always have mine with me.

There are several other things that have happened, but I'll fast forward.. (I'm already writing a book here as is..)

My boyfriends mother. She was fine Sunday. Not feeling well Monday, so she went to the Dr.. died the following Saturday. By the way, she had planned to take care of all the legal things she needed to the Monday she wasn't feeling well. Because she wasn't able to, a lot of things happened mostly toward my boyfriend. One of the things that happened to me.. my daughter is with her dad the whole month of July and I was going to use the time to get my high school education. Instead, I took care of my boyfriends 80 year old father until the electricity in his house shut off and his social worker whisked him to a home. (I love the old guy, but still need my GED pronto)

Another thing about her death.. my car. I cannot move it, no key. I can't get a key because the title is not in my name. I've been desperately trying to sell it. One potential buyer took all my time yesterday because he was chomping at the bit for it until about 7pm, when he told me he had changed his mind. I gave up that avenue and now have a junk yard coming to buy it Thursday. (which is sad enough, I was going to get a decent car with the money) The landlord had agreed to let it stay until then, but now I have until tomorrow at 3 because of my boyfriends ex who called the police. Why I know it was her? Because as soon as she found out the house was *almost* empty and up for grabs, she started moving in even though the land lord had not signed anything yet.. and she's changed the locks.

My only hope, for the car at least, is a couple who seem interested in it. We have plans to meet tomorrow. Perfect time for things to turn around.

*edit* And yes, I realize a lot of what I mention was my own I.D.ten-T error..(hah..get it? I.D.10-T..) But at the same time, I've been living on child support which is only $220 a month and food stamps which I am ashamed to say I need.

Okay, from your story (novella  ;D ) there, I can deduce that yes, you have had a little bad luck; purse and fone. you also made a poor choice (boyfriend). But it seems you are getting caught up in other peoples bad luck and bad choices, not yours, and its that that's affecting your own life.
 
Now I'm not saying you should be casting the blame on other people, however, your life is being affected by others and this is where the problem lies. I'm seeing a trend where you are being led into others lives and this has to stop somehow. At the moment you are like a leaf in the wind, being blow about as the wind takes you. You have to now make a conscious decision to anchor yourself back to earth, take stock, then make moves in the directions that you need to to put things right. It won't happen quickly or easily, but each step forward IS a step in the right direction.

Oh darn.. I ended up with another novel..

A lot of the bad luck I left out had to do with my exhusband and contingencies forced by the divorce decree. I'm curious though, if my boyfriend and I were married and I used the word husband instead, would you still have the same opinion? My ex husband abused me, mistreated me, and I didn't realize it. Because of it I constantly check an abuse site to make sure I'm not in that situation again. A better link to describe my significant other would be the love languages. And there are days he'll do one or two, and there are days he does all five. (while trying to describe what he does for me, I remembered the love languages and realized he does them all, often daily.)

Something that could be considered as my boyfriends fault is my staying to help his dad. Taking care of him actually used to be my job. I am one of three people (two now) who know how he is, how he gets, and what to do when certain things happen. I was also the only one who knew his meds since his wife passed. His health is very complicated. My boyfriend was only gone when he was working, other wise he was helping me and I was free to use the car. Another bad choice of mine was not using the car to take classes for the GED which I think I could have done had I actually found the classes. I stopped looking when I realized how sick she was. My personal goals in life felt less important.

No one planned for her to get cancer which is honestly the kick that started the ball rolling in some of the worst bad luck. I miss her dearly. I still talk to her as if she's still here, sometimes she is.. sometimes I can smell her brand of smoke and hear her nudge me. I've created a little shrine for her in the shape of her music box.. I filled it with (what feels to me as) some of her most precious-to-her trinkets.. She was 64. 

The divorce can be blamed on my ex husbands new girlfriend, my parents moved so far away because dad got a new job and didn't think I'd need to live with them again, car problems can either be luck or karma, loss of job because the car (and I could have asked my boyfriend to take me, but I didn't..) the choices I made about the car were stupid and that was my choice, The purse and phone I blame luck or karma (I found some money in a parking lot and didn't try to return it hence the karma), and the ex girlfriend who called the police? I guess I could blame my significant other since she is his ex, but he's in the same boat as I am. They have a kid together. At least she pretends to be nice, my ex just tried to accuse me of child neglect based on the opinion of a "drugged out waitress" in a restaurant.

Another reason I felt hexed (just now remembered) every time I walked out of the deceased house I felt a wave of bad luck. I am a certain flavor of clumsy, but it became more and more pronounced each time I left the house. I would like to shoutout the nosy neighbor who would have gladly been a grave robber.. But considering I was moving the belongings of my deceased friend, I could also suggest her spirit was unhappy about the situation, and she let herself be known. (either way, I felt the eyes of the nosy neighbor)

In my first message, I guess I didn't make my questions very pronounced. I was wondering if some of the bad luck could be because the frozen spell melted? (the electricity shut off, I grabbed food first.) Also, is there a stone or gem that anyone knows to aid in protection, or a level foot on luck? (I have several gems already and I was hoping someone would suggest one I already have) I did do a search for shielding but it is often pared with grounding and I haven't found what I'm looking for, so any advice on that would be greatly appreciated.

Why would you think my opinion would change? Poor choice is a poor choice, it happens. However no matter what he is, any man who abuses a woman is nothing but pond scum IMO.

I reiterate, someone elses choices. He set you up to that position, not you. Unfortunately, many people are subject to anothers whim and/or will.

What are you telling me here? It's your bad luck that she got cancer?

Again you were at someone elses whim, someone sold you a shit car, not luck or karma, just another person ripping you off, there's always someone out there who will try. Okay the purse and fone were unlucky, but these things do happen. The ex-girlfriend  is just being vindictive, again nothing to do with luck! your ex? just being an A- hole and listening to an outsider.

Feeling a wave of bad luck? What? how do you feel bad luck. This is a prime example of you convincing yourself. Neighbours are nosey, nature of the beast I'm afraid and some are worse than others.

Your question was pronounced enough, I was trying to show you that the unluckiness you claim is not your misfortune. But in answer to your question, Tigers Eye is a good stone of protection. Yes grounding does go hand in hand with shielding, but it's very easy. Grounding is like earthing a plug for electricity. the best way to earth yourself is bare feet on the ground. stand in the garden, or better still sit under a tree with your bare feet in contact with the ground and imagine any excess or stale energy flowing out and  into the earth. Then you can refresh your own energy, drawing it up from the earth and imagine and feel it flowing into you. After that, set your shields
