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!

      Hello my neigbor right across the street in Airdrie his house burned down about 7 months ago and it appeared the vehicle was plugged in for charging in his garage and caught on fire. He got out in time as he was sleeping because neighbor saw the fire early. The home is now completely rebuilt and he moved back in 1 month ago and last night it caught fire. They found a roll of toilet paper was lit and put next to the house last night but a neighbor at 3:30 in the morning saw the blaze beginning and called .There is a small amount of damage on back of house. Do you think this land is cursed or one of his x girlfriends is causing issues or has cursed it . The area is only maybe 20 years old. Not built on any native land and its a busy small town. What are your impressions? (He moved in house maybe 4 years ago and one of hix xgirlfriends spray painted asshole on his siding a few years ago.) He may be attracting bad people or what do u think? If cursed could it affect neighborhood? Is there anything i can tell him tonprotect himself to pass onto him

    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.

      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.

    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.

      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….

    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.

      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

        We have a lot of land here in Nv . 32000 acres is one ranch 140
        Acres is the one below it. They are both surrounded by the Pyramid Lake Paiute Indian reservation. Actually they are private property right in the middle of the reservation. These two places have been here for a very long time and have A LOT of history , who knows what happened before even the whites came. I can’t imagine how much has happened over the last 500 years here . The Calvary , the natives the settlers the battles etc .. people in my family have had cancer and we had years of bad things happening like fires floods deaths cancer and sickness . I wish there was a way to heal this land but I know there are sooooo many big things in high places here .

          Hi Tawni – Thanks for the comment and this situation is more common than many of us realize! You can absolutely start working with the ancestors and spirits of the land there for healing. I teach people how to do this through the Earth Tenders Academy. You can add your name to the waitlist to be notified when it opens again (soon!):

Every single contractor I hired has either stolen my money or did the job wrong etc. my brother came to visit and died in my bathroom. I feel so defeated by this land please help me

          Hi Taina – I’m so sorry you’re having this experience in your home! Often times, there are layers of issues that need to be peeled back and resolved. I get the sense that there is a specific spirit causing issues there. Start by calling in guardian spirits and having them clear everything out – I made a guided meditation to help you do that here: Or send me an email if you’d like me to do a reading and healing with the land there. Thanks for reaching out. XO

            Hi Amy,

            My husband is set to inherit a piece of land that has been in his family for many many years. His mother and aunts and uncles were born and raised on that land. His oldest uncle, when being the owner of that land, had an affair with a woman and later broke up with her because he refused to leave his wife and family. It’s said that she placed a curse on the land, that any male from the family that owned it would die, starting with him. He later died of a heart attack and every family that has had the land passed down to them, the head of household male has died of heart attack or a long painful illness, leaving their wife as a widower. His aunt currently owns and lives on the property. Shortly after her husband and she built a new house on it , he became very ill and died. So she’s been a widow for 10 years now. She notified my husband that she plans on leaving him the land and house in her will. We are honored but very fearful that he will become another victim to this curse. We don’t know where to begin to see what we can do about this. Would really like some advice please!

    Hi Amy, thank you for the article. I wonder if the land I am attempting to heal and make my home is cursed, or rather shared with malicious-instructed spirits? I would love to hear from you and maybe provide you more background, if you can please. Thank you. Benjamin

    The Bushnell farm of berne is cursed. During the anti rent wars of the 19th century families were destroyed, homes burned. Many other stories believe neighboring lands possibly our own pastures may have a darker history between the 1920s through 1960s for things I cannot say. 1971 and my grandfather died. Leaving 13 children and no left no will. The sons took everything, fought over and sold it all. After his death, dark rituals were said to have taken place and some claim to have been or witnessed people who became possessed by an evil spirit. I was born in the 90s and To this day, there has been many unexplained things…. hundreds. I’ve seen jealousy, deceit, gluttony, and many other things there that would make your head spin in terror. Close calls, hunting “accidents”, I’ve learned to go there only to remember a small time in my life. But I have learned it’s not safe to be there, I stay away. It’s a very dark and gloomy place on the top of a mountain. There’s parts of the forest there that as snow that doesn’t thaw out until the end of may. Snowdrifts are so deep you would fall into a 15 foot hole and never be found. Unexplainable scary events.
    One time I was walking up from the lowest ridge on the back 60 acres, and a heifer was loose and she was bearing a calf. She separated from the heard, and must have been down there for almost 2 weeks and it just snowed… I didn’t know, but she must have aborted the calf to survive and was very angry.
    I slowly approached her at 2 in the afternoon.
    She was sitting down looking at me from about 100 feet, I was saying where’s your friends?? We gotta get you back to the field and she just got up and charged me. I’m a good 15 minute walk from my truck, almost whiteout conditions and a 1000 pound cow wants to trample me.
    The biggest tree near me was ten inches wide, I ran in front of it and she rubbed the tree as she went by, started to turn wide and repeated this 5 times until she got tired and I ran as hard and as fast as I could away from her. It’s very scary there, that sort of thing will happen a lot there. There’s too many close calls it’s not just circumstance there is something evil there. This is a small portion of what really goes on. I’ve seen drones in the sky, and plenty of other things too. The snow owls faces become much more defined and creepy there…animals are even effected. From chickens that were normal one day to a pen full of slaughtered cannibal chickens the next. I literally spent thousands of dollars there trying to make a dream come true and what I ended up getting was discouraged, bankrupt, beat up, beat down thrown around by my own family. From having people who raised me treat me like an enemy, or a threat over a deer carcass that must be dealt with. They lie cheat steal borrow beg and barricade to keep their claim on the land. From parking massive RVs and trucks to abandoned buildings or all season units with no permits, they will stop at nothing to shove their way to the top. The taxes are almost the same price each year as half a new 2020 Chevy pickup would cost. And each year it’s a fight for money nobody wants to pay.


    our neighbors have families just as big with many parcels of land and they do not show the evil mine does.
    Never leave this world without leaving a will.
    That is a curse you don’t want to put on your family
