May I please have specific advice regarding my daughter. She’s 18, this is where she bought probably another stone or rock yesterday. . . .
She’s been moody and not pleasant to be around lately. She’s always painting psychedelic things around her room. Yesterday her father was giving her advice and she said “I don’t need a man to tell me what to do”. She apologized later because I unleashed an immediate verbal reprimand. I’m still upset at her saying that. I’m usually the velvet glove.
This is what I need help on please.
I know it’s “just a rock or stone” but on top of my just being sad that she’s into this, I don’t know if these owners try to put some dark magic in their stuff, I know God is greater but Ive heard several eerie stories of witches converting to Catholicism because apparently weird unholy things happen when you mess with this stuff for “healing” so my question is: (please note she doesn’t take advice well no matter how subtle or frank her father and I try to be)
Should I not worry too much and add a 54 day novena for her.? I know it’s always a good idea but I pray every single day for my kids already and I’m sorry if this comes off wrong, I don’t have energy to say a daily rosary but I would absolutely do it if you guys think I should in this case since I do believe we are in a spiritual battle and I want to protect her from anything that may harm her spiritually.
Please know I’m very sensitive on this topic and I know sometimes text comes off as harsher than was meant but I never intend to be ignorant about things so that’s why I come here because I worry about her. The other day she confided through tears that she wish she had friends. This is very unlike her. She has about 2 but that is a separate issue I’d like not to address in this thread if that’s ok unless you have an idea of how in this pandemic she can be social aside from the military and university. (Once I mentioned the military she said she won’t do it for the sole reason that the suggestion came from me, a parent - even though it was her idea months ago and this was just a reminder)
Thank you for any advice and for reading this.
