Can Land Hold a Curse?

Can Land Hold a Curse?

Last week I wrote about how trees can help heal a piece of land after a trauma has happened there, based on a question I asked my guides about a Netflix documentary I recently watched. Well, apparently this is now my second (of two) posts based on my TV watching! Well, actually not even my TV watching as this question came about after hearing about a particular show.

It’s called The Curse of Oak Island. Have you heard of it?

It’s about a little island off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada where a pirate in the 1700’s may have buried his treasure. Or it may be the final resting place of the holy grail. Or be hiding Marie Antoinette’s jewels, or manuscripts proving that Francis Bacon was the author of William Shakespeare’s works. Who knows. But you get the idea. And any number of people have been digging on this island since the early 1800’s looking for the secrets held by this island.

Legend says that seven men must die before the treasure will be revealed. This is the curse the island holds.

This show is currently in its fifth season and I had never heard of it before a couple of months ago. When I heard the story, my feeling was that the land was complicit in the curse in some way, but perhaps it didn’t have a choice. I actually tried to watch the show twice but almost immediately fell asleep both times – I was definitely getting the message to keep my distance and not get sucked in.

I was curious to know more, but didn’t think it was a good idea to connect with the land itself. I decided to ask my guides what they could share with me about the property and the curse.

They said that it is the spirits within and upon the land that are cursed, or rather, entranced. Not the land itself. Greedy people placed the curse on this land and they understood how to do it and how it would work.

The spirits present are continuing to follow their orders as instructed.

I asked about breaking the curse and was told that it could be broken, but not by the people living and working there. Everyone who has participated in the treasure hunt has added to the spell, making it even stronger over the centuries. Paying it additional attention only adds to the negative energy present (and is likely why I wasn’t even able to watch an episode from afar). My guides shared that the land is being damaged by the treasure hunting and so it, and the spirits there are not able to do their work.

Love is needed to release the spell.

I asked if there was anything I could or should do to help and was told that I could if I wanted to, but it would only really serve as a learning opportunity for me. I cannot break this curse on my own and I would have to be careful not to give any additional energy to the spell.

In order to shift the energy there, very intense love energy will be needed to balance the negative energy it has attracted for so long. Furthermore, the television show has only attracted even more of this negative energy, making the job even more difficult. However, the energy of love is so much stronger, so fewer people are needed to hold this vibration to help tip the scales.

In the end, I decided to wish the property well and keep my distance. As healers of any kind, sometimes the most important question to ask ourselves when confronted with an issue that needs healing is “Is this my job to do?”. My guides were clear that it wasn’t my job, although I could use it as practice if I wished. That being said, it is clear to me that land, or at least the spirits of a particular place absolutely can be entranced or cursed. I’m guessing this lesson will come back to me at some point in the future on land that it will be my job to work on.

So, what are your thoughts on this? Have you watched this show or encountered land holding a curse? What did you experience? I’d love to hear from you.

    I think my property in Bozeman has either a curse or bad spirits or maybe the land spirits there didn’t interact well with us.

      Often times I find that the spirits on a particular piece of property are wary of people if they have had negative past experiences with them. Sometimes they’d rather be left alone. When I do property readings, sometimes I have to call a little conference and let everyone know that the people living there now want to work with them and apologize for the past “bad human behavior”. And sometimes there’s some actual energetic healing that can improve any icky energy still present on the land.

      We bought a flip house. It was abandoned for a couple of years, as the mentally unstable man was evicted. It was destined to be razed, when the contractor bought it. The man who was evicted lived here with his mother until her death, then barricaded himself and his property with bedsprings, and various other obstacles. The plumbing didn’t work, so buckets of excrement were in the halls. Since buying this house be siding has fallen off three times, the plumbing backed up, the new furnace clogged up twice, the music room flooded, the rec room flooded, the guest closet started leaking, the door knob downstairs fell off twice, the door knob to the garage fell off, the kitchen sink plumbing came apart, the master bathroom sink plumbing came apart, the roof shingles have bubbled up. We have open stagnant water next to our house from the neighboring storm sewers, and our house is below grade from the road. Help!

        Hi Diana – I get the impression that it’s the mother who’s causing the issues. I’ll send you an email to discuss it further!

    I do believe land can have a curse. I’ve walked some places that felt ‘off’ and couldn’t stay on them. I’ve seen shows about Oak Island, and I always felt it to be a sad place.

    • Amy says:

      Yeah, there are a wide variety of reasons land can feel “off”, some of which we can help with and some of which we just need to leave alone and let the land heal on its own. Oak Island definitely feels like it’s been taken from far more than it’s been given and the energy there feels very depleted.

  3. Karen says:

    I watch this show and feel so sad for the land and the way they keep drilling and digging with no respect or sympathy for the island. So glad for your post it helps me understand what is going on there.

    • Amy says:

      Yes, I’ve noticed this on a variety of shows (the gold digging ones get to me too) where there is just a constant desire to get things from the land and pretending that the land doesn’t have a say in how it’s going to work out. The invasive digging, drilling, and ripping of the earth just kills me….

  4. Edward says:

    My land is cursed. This place took away everything I loved, and drove away my life partner. Any animals, trees or plants I tried to raise were killed off by the surrounding wilderness or the road. Not sure what to do, advice is appreciated.

    • Amy says:

      Hi Edward – I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling with this piece of land. It does feel like the wilderness wants to take everything back. I’ll send you an email with some additional notes. Thanks for reaching out…Amy
