Three weeks ago, I received an email that really bothered me.
A young woman explained that she had entered a relationship with a man from work about a year ago. At first, during the honeymoon phase of their relationship, she was sure that this was the man she’d been seeking for all of her life.
A few months later, however, she heard some disturbing stories about him through a trusted source.
When she confronted her partner with what her close friend had revealed, he became extremely angry. He shouted and hurled a glass across the room before stomping out. At that point, she knew she wanted nothing more to do with him. His fiery reaction to her questions said it all.
The next day, she got him alone in the break room during lunch and told him it was over. To this, he gave a strange smile and replied: “Darling, this is only the beginning.” At first, she thought he was attempting to save face and she put the whole thing to the back of her mind. However, when she caught him following her home after work that night, fear began to rise up.
Her first reaction was to call the police. They informed her that they couldn’t do a thing until he acted in a threatening manner towards her.
Since the day of the confrontation, he followed her to and from work every day. He didn’t threaten her. When he knew she’d seen him, he smiled and waved. She was beside herself with fear.
After living in this nightmare for several weeks, she wrote me an email asking how she could get him to leave her alone. I went to the goddess Oya to seek answers. Here is what the goddess said:
Lyn, this is the sort of situation where this woman must raise a storm. By allowing this reprobate to follow and taunt her, she is giving away her power. Going to the authorities first and acting on their advice was an excellent first step, but it would be foolish for her to continue to cringe as she waits for him to make the first move. This will only make her feel more the victim, and this isn’t acceptable.
Likewise, there is no wisdom in another private confrontation. The man has a problem with anger and is therefore dangerous. Strategy is the key here. She needs to use his anger wisely. If the police won’t act until this man acts threateningly towards her, then she must get him to do so in a public place, so witnesses can back her story.
Tell her to walk up to him at his desk and in front of his colleagues and repeat loudly what her friend told her.
She used the goddess Oya’s strategy and received fantastic results. When she repeated the words of her friend in a loud voice, several things happened at once. Some of the co-workers laughed whilst others began asking if the allegations were true. The ex-partner turned purple and he called the woman a few choice words.
As a result, the woman called the police down to report his threatening stance and get statements from the witnesses. She was now able to get a restraining order that prevents the man from coming anywhere near her. In addition, the company she works for felt such shame due to his behaviour that it decided to initiate a further investigation into his background. To its surprise, it found the man had committed several crimes that he hadn’t mentioned at the time they hired him. This resulted in his immediate dismissal.
Thanks to the strategy of Oya, I’m pleased to say that this woman now has her power back.
