In the line of work I am in, you can only imagine that my life is never boring. I realized that it was about to get more interesting when I received a phone call from Pete McMurray on June 17, 2003. Pete is the morning show host of WLUP Radio as well as a part-time broadcaster for FOX Sports Television in Chicago.
Denise, can you meet me at Wrigley Field tomorrow to take the curse of the goat off the Cubs? Im doing a shoot for FOX, he said.
Yikes! Would the feeling of major anxiety apply here and stick in my throat like sludge? I finally decided that it was not the first time Ive been called upon to remove unwanted negativity or spiritual energy from an environment. However, removing a curse that had been placed on the Cubs LONGER than Ive been ALIVE seemed like a tremendous challenge. I felt a knot in my gut for a fleeting moment and then reluctantly answered yes.
I had a lecture that day in Elgin at 1 p.m., so I thought that I might as well go into the city that morning and have some fun. My son, Jordan, joined Pete and me for lunch. I figured breaking bread with two handsome men could only bring me luck. Eventually, the cameraman arrived, and as I stood in front of Wrigley Field, I felt a heavy, melancholic energy looming over the park. It was similar to the energy Ive felt in haunted environments. I had picked up a fresh sage wand from Minglewood the night before. With that and my trusty negativity repellent, my own exclusive formula that I have perfected over the last 10 years, I began to do my stuff.
Only my sons know the formula to this product and, hopefully, they will pass it down to their children someday. As luck would have it, the moon was just full on the 14th. The waning moon is always the best time to get rid of anything that no longer benefits youespecially negative energies. On a lighter note, its also a great time to start a diet or clean out your closets.
With the planets in my favor, I sprayed, I smudged, I chanted and I prayed to remove the source of negativity from the Cubs once and for all. I explained to Pete that this would take a full lunar cycle to activate. (From the way they played that weekend, it was obvious it hadnt taken a hold yet.) Pete, being a Leo (and you know Leos arent known for their patience) said NO! Make it work now! Even under the most stressful serious conditions, Pete always finds a way to make me laugh hysterically. I am so blessed to know so many wonderful and talented people.
The filming ran late, I missed my lecture, and the woman was extremely angry with me. I apologized profusely and tried to explain to her what I was doing. She cut me no slack at all. As I was driving home from Chicago, I became disappointed in myself for not fulfilling an obligation I had promised to do. I had to let it go; the Cubs were more important. I thought about her last week. I wondered when the Cubs win the World Series, whether it would be 2003 or 2004, if she will ever forgive me. I know the rest of Chicago land will as well as every Cubs fan everywhere, and thats good enough for me.
