As a paranormal investigator I often get asked if I am worried about something evil attaching itself to me after an investigation. Although I haven’t shared this story publicly, I did have a brush with evil. In fact I believe I was cursed.
My Scary Story
Earlier last year I got a message from a Dead Explorer fan, a Wiccan, who lived in Europe. I have known this fan for a very long time. She has always been very supportive, always leaving comments, just somebody I know that is a huge fan of the show. So when this fan sent me an email saying that I was cursed I was really surprised. I did not know what to think. Part of me was skeptical, as I am about everything paranormal, but the part that trusted this person as a fan and supporter of my show made me listen. She gave me some really simple advice. All I had to do was boil some herbs and put the water from those herbs on myself three nights in a row to lift the curse. I thought, what’s the worst that could happen? I researched those herbs and found out they were all associated with the positive spells. So that made me feel a little bit safer about trying it. After all, they were just herbs. If it was not real, nothing would happen to me, right?
A Real Life Curse?
Every night I followed her advice. I got into the tub and put this hot boiling herb water on myself. I made sure to push the water down as instructed. According to what I read if you wash up you bring negative energy in, but if you go down you make the curse go out. On the third night of doing this I just followed the simple routine putting the boiling water over me, but this is when things got weird. After I finished putting the herb water on myself like I’d done every night and finish rubbing it down my body I heard loud thunder. One of those big loud thunder that first jars you, and then you hear those after-thunders roll through the hills. I just brushed it off as perhaps a rainstorm that had come over my house. I went ahead finished my business, washed off the liquids, and took a shower. After I finished my shower I dried off and went into my room. I was shocked to see that it was bright as day outside. I thought how could this be possible? I went to my wife that had been sitting in the living room the whole entire time and asked her did it just rain? Was there a thunderstorm that happened really quickly? She said no. I asked her if she had heard the loud thunder I had heard two rooms away room her and she told me she didn’t.
I could not explain it. However, I did feel a sudden sense of happiness, like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulder. Although I cannot say that thunder sound was a direct result of using a spell to remove a curse from me, the coincidence is hard to ignore. In the end of the day it doesn’t prove that there is anything paranormal, but it was definitely my own personal experience. I know it’s hard to believe, but I know what I heard that day and nobody can convince me otherwise.
