Sure, one may believe they are experiencing just a streak of bad luck -- but on the rare occasion the streak is unusually long or persistent, here are the universal signs of someone (or something!) working against you .
Call it being cursed, jinxed, goofered, hexed, crossed -- it doesn't matter, the symptoms are always the same.
The symptoms of being on the receiving end of a curse tend to fall into three different categories: Psychological, Anatomical and External.
As any good demonologist or occultist will tell you, the easiest path of destructive entry for any spirit or energy is through your mind. The spirits set to cause harm may cause the following mental symptoms to occur:
- Nightmares As our conscious mind rests, our subconscious mind processes and plays out the inner dialogue of the psyche. This is the time for the curse to be most active, as our watchful guard is down and we cannot consciously process or control our experience. Do not be alarmed when you encounter occasional nightmares - those are perfectly natural. The persistent nightmares carrying the same theme or subject matter are the ones to cause concern. Consistent nightmares typically indicate an early stages of a curse that is about to plague your life.
- Depression or Oppression without cause. Despite adequate nutrition (check your B12 and D3 levels!) , relaxation and counseling, something unknown keeps weighing you down. This mysterious feeling of unsettledness is typically an indication of present toxic energy or an entity attachment. This symptom can last throughout the lifetime of the curse and a short period beyond its removal. If left untreated, it can cause clinical psychosis.
