Dealing with the “dark side”

It’s safe to say that every person walking this planet is imperfect—if we were all without flaws, there would be no point in even being here—but some people’s souls are darker than others. Our world is home to many such young, disruptive souls. These people may physically or emotionally hurt others, bully the more sensitive or vulnerable among us, and generally cause mayhem. This is probably because the young soul hasn’t yet developed the wisdom or empathy for others that it should and because it has chosen to follow a bad path. We all have a choice—to follow a good path or a bad one. I don’t mean to say that we all started out as murderers and rapists at the beginning of our reincarnation process, though; we are all individuals with free will. We all climb the spiritual ladder at our own pace.

After a lifetime of doing harm, this type of soul is counseled on the other side by the elders (guides and angels), who try to help the soul see the error of its ways. Sometimes counseling doesn’t help, and so the soul, when it reincarnates, is born into a situation where it will learn the lesson firsthand; this is where the law of karma comes into play. And sometimes those who failed to be upright and honorable while they were alive carry these same soul traits into the afterlife, but decide to remain in a dark astral realm and not reincarnate. This means that bad spirits really do exist, and it’s important to protect yourself from them.

Many Wiccans, whether working in a solitary way or in a coven, will make a point, once or twice a year, of uniting with fellow witches to perform ritualistic candle spells. At his time, they all band together and ask the angels for a higher consciousness for those who are considered evil. We believe that prayer and ritual are all-powerful and can shift the negative energies around malevolent people and spirits, leaving more positive energy behind.

What Comes Around

If you tread on the heads of a few people on the way up, you may just meet them on the way down! It’s safe to say that whatever weakness or shortfall there is in your personality, your life will expose it in some way. Until you resolve the problem, you will keep reincarnating.

You may be graced with a life of wealth and power, enabling you to shoot right up the corporate ladder and deck yourself out in diamond tiaras. Just because you have the crown jewels on your head doesn’t mean that you are better than others; in fact, you are being tested by the spirit world to see exactly what you are going to do with all your good fortune.

If you don’t put that money energy to good use, but turn into a mean old miser, keeping it all for yourself, the next time around you may be plunged into a life of poverty. Having an experience like this teaches the soul a very important lesson: however much you desire those diamond tiaras, you just can’t afford them, and so, hopefully, you will begin to appreciate what matters most—your resolve the problem, you will keep reincarnating.

Sharing the little pleasures may begin to seem much more significant.

I always admire celebrities and businesspeople who give a lot of their fortune to charity, especially if they came from poor backgrounds themselves. Regardless of how much money they have, their feet are still firmly on the ground. These souls probably lived impoverished lives at some stage, and now, with many reincarnations under their belts, they are quite happy to spread their good fortune around. This automatically scores them good karma points for the future.
