  1. I saw a spirit last night in the dream.. not a good one.. i tried sending it back and succeeded… but then my sleep broke and i had to wake up and couldn’t sleep then.. i had to chant prayers till I could feel safe again.. and then I got cold and fever and weakness…. any help?

    • Sounds like you actually did a good job handling it, the next thing I would do is have handy a beloved smudging and fill the room and your senses with that while banishing negative energy in thoughts through verse. I usually write them in forms of three sentences and repeat them several times…this can and often will even take you into a trance as you thrum this to yourself and through the room. It will take care of all negative energy around you and in you, unless you are holding onto some, maybe unknowingly.
