Toxic people and situations are like the many mysterious viruses we pick up during cold and flu season. You can never be quite sure how you caught them and really the most important issue is simply, how do you get rid of them? How much effort does it require and what are the repercussions for your brain, emotions, psyche, spirit and indeed your soul to banish or purge? One of the first causes of action is analysis—a good shaman will do this analysis—examining every aspect of the environmental situation and that includes the mental, spiritual and physical.
Toxic people and situations may or may not have spiritual entity attachment. Needy spirits, bad spirits, playful and mischievous spirits may inhabit the toxic source. You always need to be aware of such potential and you need prophylactics—daily ones and in this case I’m not talking condoms. Spiritual prophylactics can be charms, amulets, chants, affirmations, prayers—but, don’t let these things become distractions; always trust your instincts. Prophylactics may stem from the power of an altar—your mastery of candlemancy (candle magick)—your ability to negotiate spirit world through trance, assisted by dance, movement or sound of djembe drums and rattles.
To cure this affliction on your own takes hard work and deep introspection. Ultimately you will need to employ sharp vision and a warrior's spirit. Build up your spiritual artillery (human and spiritual realm assistants) and get ready for the battle to restore your life to where it should be.
