Don't be alarmed when people deliberately look away or seem to shy away from you. They are probably just not resonating at the same vibration that you are. In the same way that someone who is depressed and bitter hates to be around a happy bouncy personality, some people just don't share your energy. It is not bad or good, just a different vibe.
Crabby attitude people hate me unless I am really in a bad mood then they want to hang around me.
Don't worry so much about those you feel may wish to do you harm. Anyone who would seek to do "curses" or spiritual harm to you cannot really. It is only what you allow in your life that can. It may be that as you have been raising your spiritual awareness you have begun to notice the stark contrast of light and dark more than ever.
It can feel like suddenly coming out of a dark cave into the light. At first the light is dazzling and then as you adjust to this new view the shadows seem so much darker. When you were in the cave it all looked alike in grey and black and you were used to it. ( I hope this makes sense.)
You seem to be on the right path. Worry less and enjoy your journey more. Worry is rent you pay on property that you don't live on.
