So do you? Well, this child sure did and he told ‘The Mighty Shadow’ his reason why…

he said even though the songs were non-sense people were liking the non-sense music…so the child made sense of it; that is must be Obeah…

Making Sense of Our World 

We all need to make sense of our World and we do that by coming up with our own reasoning and theories… and we are free to choose any reasoning we like…Obeah could be one of them…

Making Sense when things seem odd/strange

There are some things that do seem oddly strange…

so Dr. Winston Bailey a Trinbagonian calypsonian recently passed, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r4-7EgYuewwas faith would have it another Trinbagonian calypsonian Winston Scarborough ‘The Original De Fosto Himself’ NOT only attends his funeral service but performed singing about meeting the obeah… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WleoW3eg96o 

Mind over Matter or Matter over Mind

Whatever we choose to believe would make us:

choose the thoughts we pay attention,

result in the type of emotional energy we generate if/when anything comes up that we explain using this ‘obeah’ reasoning,

lead to our mind causing us to search out things that prove us right…and so our mind on our reasoning in this case ‘obeah’ leads to us literally discovering matter (actual evidence to support what we have in our mind)

Does it matter?

Really we are all free to choose our reasoning for odd events. The only question is “how is that reasoning working for us?” if it is working for us then great, but if it is not…the good news is that it is a case of mind over matter where we can change our mind and consider different reasons to explain what happened and so experience new emotions and choose new behaviors and find other evidence to support different explanations…

but for those of us who think ‘obeah’ can make luck in our love relationships…well guess we would consider what Georgie does as a good move to improve our relationships;

For those with a different explanation on the relationship challenges, there are other options…
