they were driving away from the camp and in an hour, they were headed towards
Amanda’s house. Since her sister in law was at home on maternity leave, Amanda
had felt that it would be best to introduce her to Ben so that she could tell
him her mind and make him understand the situation better.

to Ben’s tale. “And you mean you almost strangled yourself last night?” She
turned to ask Amanda who in turn had told her the story of her dreams.

that the beast that attacked Amanda in her dream was sent from the marine

Amanda must have dealt with an environmental spirit, which is territorial. Amanda must have upset them. Can you recall
the events of the day and the stuff that happened before the attack?”

see…this life is filled with so many mysteries and much more than the
fraction we know about. There are spiritual beings that we cannot see and those
that inhabit bodies of people for a while to do harm or good as the case maybe.
Most often than not, these harmful and evil spirits lurk around us and we have
to do everything to withstand them.”

is not only physical, it also is spiritual and just the way there’s physical
energy during sex, there is also spiritual energy hence it aids the fusion of
two spirits together.”

was being rushed to the clinic and I offered to help out, when we got there, I
prayed for her and laid my hands on her head and as soon as I did that…I felt
a rush of heat…I was so sick…I staggered out of her room, walked out to the
corridor and passed out.”

Sharon? She’s a student I teach…she’s quite rude…I remember her being rude
to me on one occasion and later she apologized to me….wait a minute…I could
remember asking her if she believed in God and asking her about church in

and not for religion…” Amanda started.

himself that chains you down, God can break those chains in a snap. The
challenge here is, how do you properly ask God for help? A lot of people know
their problems but not everyone has gotten a solution yet and the longer you
tarry, the more hold the spirits have over you.”

of a man from my mother’s village, it was said that one morning he went to the
stream and when he got there he saw a mermaid and fell in love with her. From
then on, he became half human and half fish, in the sense that he became a
marine as well but not in full. He continued the relationship and one day
disappeared then after a year, he returned, looking as beautiful as ever, his
skin was so translucent and he looked surreal, just like one who had been
bathed a million times over. After staying with his family for a while, he
disappeared again and never came back, two weeks after his disappearance; they
saw his body washed up at the river bank. This happened a long time ago, back
in the day when people knew God but didn’t hold unto Him as strongly as they do
today. The truth about these mermaids or marine spirits is that they spiritually
get married to you, have children with you and create a life with you in their
waters. They never and I mean never, let you marry anyone else in your earthly
life and destroy whatever relationships you try to build and most times kill
you in the process. They are dangerously possessive and they mark their
territory and you Ben, have been marked.
