alot of intense darkness has been within my family for a long time, and lately more than ever...  i have been feeling the need to protect myself, i have been really ill for a year now, and i am at a weakened state, i feel like i am being consumed by a dark force and though i am still following with my faith in wicca i am still new to the practice and would like some assistance..
I ask anyone if they know of anything I can do to help myself and my family to be protected i would be forever grateful.
I've done alot of candle work, and protection circles, purification bath rituals..someone suggested sage for our house.....

may you all be blessed
--PorcelainRose

Some asked for more information.. So I edited my post.
I for the last year have been in and out of many hospitals, i was diagnosed with a bone disease affecting my lower spine last year.. My kidneys failed i was flatelined for 30 min then i was on life support for two weeks and it took awhile for me to function normally aagain ebcause of the loss of oxygen to my brain.. i had abcesses growing all around my spinal cord. After 8 or more months of treatment with IV antibiotics, and surgerical removals, I was about 80 pounds. I am now back to 125 pounds, But have now aquired Diskitis because of the Osteomyltis bone disease, which is the disk between two of my vertebre is compeltely missing causing emmense pain. But before this as a child growing up i had always been sickly, my mother has mental afflictions such as depression, what doctors call bipolar and drug addiction. My grandfather died of cancer, my grandmother has been struggling with depression and breast cancer, All my uncles are alcoholics.. At night i wake up in panics and see dark shadows, I just feel that not all of this is bad luck, I feeld the need to take a stand and seek protection for my family. So that they can be happy healthy and live within the light and not be shrouded in all of this darkness. I probably should have posted something about healing.. is there a healing "prayer chain" of some sort at the cauldren forum?

I would like more information.  You said your entire family is afflicted but you only described what you are going through.  Have you seen a doctor about this weakened state?

I second Melamphoros. Before leaping to "something Evil is sucking the life out of me" go see a doctor and find out what the mundane reason could be. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome comes to mind, but I am *not* a medical person by any means.

I'm very, very sorry to hear that so many bad things happend to you and your family.

But this is not necessarily a sign for a curse or dark energy. Things like depressions can be passed on, panic at night and seeing things in a night panic attack is something that calls for a doctorvisit. Please get  some 'mundane' help first, before you go deeper into the idea of being cursed or something like this. That wont exactly help with panic attacks.

I'll light a candle for you.

Seeing as this is the same as your PM, I will reply to it here.

I'll start out by saying that alcoholism (and other addictions), depression and bipolar disorder can be hereditary.  It's unfortunate that you are going through all of this, but I don't think that you should jump to the supernatural before ruling out all mundane possibilities.

These panics and shadows you are experiencing in the middle of the night intrigue me.  Do you also feel paralyzed when you experience them?  Alternatively are you taking any medications that could cause you to see these things.

Note that I'm not a doctor and have no training in either psychology (aside from one class) or pharmacology.

PorcelainRose,

We prefer that you do not edit posts for anything more substantial than a typo after a few moments.  After this, if you have information to add, please make a second post that links back to the first one.

Thanks!

Panic runs in my family. Wink

I encourage you to see a doctor about this. It's really easy to think OMG I'VE BEEN CURSED but really, this is quite common and very often hereditary.

Jumping to the worst possible conclusion won't help you any at all.

(((hugs))) Here's hoping that you figure out what is going on and have some peace in your life.

I ask anyone if they know of anything I can do to help myself and my family to be protected i would be forever grateful.

With the list of medical issues that you describe I would side with everyone above in recommending speaking with your physicians and ruling out pharmacological effects first.  Sometimes the list of side effects of a medication are worse than the original issue they're meant to treat and sometimes they're down right contradictory.  I recall one medication I was taking for headaches where a side effect was causing headaches!  So, definitely get with those who know your medical history best and rule out the mundane first.

The other issues you mention, alcoholism, depression, etc. are unfortunate but not necessarily attributable to evil entities.  However, that said, there are some entities out there that feed on negativity and could exacerbate an already existing situation.

Beyond all this, I am a firm believer that illness has a component on multiple different levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  It doesn't matter which arena you begin working in you'll eventually address all of them in some manner.  So, if you feel that you need to move in a non-physical direction for the next step in your healing then that may be right for you.  I would think that possibly basic house cleansing would be a good place to start.  You may also want to look at the The Wiccan Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.  The Cauldron's Grimoire may be of use to you as well in it's cleansing and protection areas.

Ultimately, you need to decide what is the best direction to move in.  Good luck with your endeavors!

Alcoholism and depression do sometimes go hand in hand.  Plus alcohol is a depressant.  As others have pointed out, both of those can run in families.  If your family is prone to other illnesses, that probably doesnt help the alcoholism or depression.

Given your situation, I'm not surprised that you suffer from anxiety.  I would strongly suggest talking to your doctor/s about all of this, and aybe discuss the possibility of talking therapy etc.

I'm like others here. I always think it is best to rule out mundane possibilities before deciding that some has to be caused by something supernatural. Evil entities capable causing the problems you describe certainly exist, but they generally have better things to do.

That said, learning and do a banishing ritual regularly will not hurt. However, if the causes of your problems are mundane, doing banishing rituals will not help.  You'll find basic description of how to do the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram here:

http://www.ecauldron.com/cmagick08.php

If the ceremonial magick aspect of this throws you, a specifically Wiccan version has been written:

http://www.ecauldron.com/wiccanlbrp.php

I'd strongly recommend checking with doctors even if these do seem to help some, because chances are over 99% that the causes are mundane.
