Viral Infection of the Spirit


    
    
   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.

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

Poof!
We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.











Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 1

I've been waiting for this post for a long time. It shares the growing journey of my urban garden.










Making Soulful Connections

This weekend, I had the pleasure of presenting my new release "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss" at Afriware Books and Events, an African-centered bookstore in Maywood, Illinois to a wonderfully receptive audience. Topics covered included making juice from popular soul food fruits and veggies and making mojo bags for self-determination and strength. My daughter Olivia Bird took these action photos:






Thanks to all involved, including Afriware staff, volunteers, my family and the folks who came out on a beautiful Saturday Summer afternoon and supported my work.
