The answer to your questions are no. I worry about my parents in general. She is 67 and my dad is 72. She has lost a few close family members who passed away close to the holidays so I'm hoping it's just the blues!
Ah, this explains it, honestly it does.
I hope you didnt mind me sending you the incantation. I have found when someone is worried about unseen things (ie impending disaster) it helps to focus on a positive. Prayer is one way, invoking 'Mother Earth' and 'Good Spirits' is another.
I have a friend who is deeply religious, she goes to church and has crucifixes all over her house. She was the last person I would have thought would turn to the old ways to keep evil from her door. One day however, she mentioned to me that she thought her house was haunted. It was news to me as she had never mentioned it before but here she was absolutely terrified and in genuine need of someones help. She explained the haunting had only started since she brought into her home something of her grandmothers, an old chest of drawers, (it had been bequethed to her and though she didnt like it, felt she had to take it home with her). Anyhow, since its arrival things had been going wrong, accidents had happened, items lost and whenever she went into the room in which it stood she felt uneasy so much so she didnt like to go into the room anymore.
I reasoned with her that it was probably because she didnt like the furniture and that she should if she felt so strongly just sell it on or throw it out.
She told me she couldnt. Her mother would never forgive her.
I told her, give it to your mother, at which she said her mother didnt want it in her house because she didnt like it either.
So I went to see it. (at my friends behest)
It was a reasonably nice piece, it was old, probably a hundred or more years to be truthful, it was made of oak with great big brass handles. Actually it was the kind of thing I have in my house.
So I suggested she ask her priest to bless the chest of drawers and her house. She told me she had already done this, but that he had been very scathing of her request. (That deeply upset her). In fact he had laughed at her suggestion the c of d might be possessed or the like.
So I told her to get some Peppermint and burn it, followed by some Eucalyptus and sprinkle it around the chest of drawers and to keep some nearby it.
She reported everything had settled down after she did as I told her.
But if it helps, what the heck.
