ASMR Aspergirl Whispering Witch Nocturnal Chat YouTube Channel | Lightworker | Mayastar Academy | Maya Magickal Spells & Personalised Initiation Programmes

New YouTube Channel:

ASMR/Quiet Talking bedroom chitchat from the Whispering Witch!

I am an Aspergirl, Blogger, Lightworker & Modern Mystic.

My Aspergers (a type of high functioning autism) means I’m more comfortable using the ASMR “whispered conversation” method. The mutual increased focus this initiates allows for a more intimate communication & natural connection.

My intention is to provide a unique, relaxed & informal style for viewers.

If you are new to ASMR pls give it a chance…at first it may seem odd but it’s a wonderful method of having a heart to heart “vibe”. I also recommend headphones.

I teach online energy healing, meditation & spiritual development courses, so I plan to cover related subjects as well as hobbies, reviews & personal updates.

I hope you will enjoy!

Good Evening ♡ Stream of Consciousness on Waking!

image

I’m awake…I just have to move or something. Do Starbucks deliver yet???

No. I feel ok. Gonna get up and workout for a couple of hours. Tried to do test of Mineral Magic for a vlog…tried to get really close up to my face but my skin looks creme de la mer fresh. So now I need to check it out on my laptop to get an idea if before and after showed any difference at all :s

I will use ASMR soft speaking though. I couldn’t do a bombastic enthusiastic Tony Robbins style…my autism makes me mute sometimes. Whispering is something I naturally do a lot and I think I do it to save my own brain and keep asper anxiety in check.

Also later tonight…me and my boyfriend have dinner and chill out listening to motown (we usually do). Tescos deliver supplies. Most of my bills magickally evaporate a chunk of money as the DDs hit. I hope over hope that I get the skirts I ordered so I can begin to dye them to match my grunge goth style (uncorsetted, I dress like a bohemian I guess).

I also do some admin, watch some axe men. Send a copy of the Mayastar (www.mayastar.net/special.htm) newsletter. The Nataraj Working is v popular and this time of year I make the most of planetary and lunar influences because the solar ones are intensifying and far more useful for prosperity spells etc.

Oooh. Ty new followers on my page…I should probably say I am a practising witch (www.mayamagickal.net), so if you’re offended by my spiritual beliefs and the practices associated with them, please don’t spam me with hell and damnation messages. And consider, if your religion asks you to sit in judgement of other people, is that really what’s right? I don’t agree with racism, homophobia or any of bigotry – I’m not exactly religious but I am religious about equality and freedom. And oppose tyranny in all its forms.

Ok. Off my soapbox. Tonight I may actually try editing a video. It so new to me if anyone can recommend intuitive software for it I would love to hear! (I use Irfanview and Picsart for mixed media art…I draw a blank when I see Adobe or Serif software!)

Huge love guys! And welcome new guys.

I can also be found on youtube…can’t remember my link yet…but my name appears @AnnaLouiseMay on most networks I use…

Haircare Tips | Henna | Coconut Oil | Growing Hair | Cone Free | Lush Recommendations | Redhead | Pre-Raphaelite | Boho Hippie Chick | Natural Beauty | Styling Big Hair Without Heat or Products

image

I thought I would do a blog about hair growing basics. By trial and error I have found a lot out about the best and worst things I can do for my own hair. And hopefully some of this information will be helpful to others. So this is a haircare tips blog specifically relating to colouring and growing your hair.

I will punctuate it with some photos. I’ve wandered thru the flat trying to find good lighting to get a photo of my freshly hennaed hair…it’s not easy! Of a dozen locations I think only two give any idea of my hair colour…with moodlights and fairylights everywhere it’s easy to get cool selfies in here…not easy to get ones of hair colour though. Also, henna really looks different in different light. In artificial light it can look bright red, in candlelight almost black – and in daylight somewhere in the middle. (Though being a nocturnal hermit type, no one sees it very much in daylight!)

image

Will post up some through this blog though so you get an idea can see how well conditioned my henna mix leaves my hair…and how it looks if left to dry naturally. Kind of wavy. V hippie, boho, preraphaelite – just how I like it!

image

In my henna mix…150g henna (my hair is v thick. Most people would only need to use 100g tops for hair my length). Two table spoons of sun in (the peroxide makes the henna stain v deep – I don’t use it every time but found lemon juice, which is used for the same, dried my hair badly but the tiny amount of peroxide in sun in didn’t. I would not recommend it to everyone but it works for me!). Two tablespoons of coconut oil. This moisturises and conditions and also makes it much easier to rinse the henna.
image

Henna is a powder and the mix is like making runny mud and covering your head in it. Then in plastic. Then a towel. Then leave it for 6 hours before washing it out. The henna makes your head v heavy so I tend to apply it to sections and wind them around each other at the front of my head (like my marie antoinette up do for curls in another blog; picture below shows the effect immediately after untwisting the antoinette up do – it settles down into waves and curls…v big hair!).
image

Some people complain that henna is so permanent. But that’s a good thing for me!

image

Some get purple or blueish tones if they over henna…I think mine is less prone to that because of the sun in used in my mix and also there a big sections of white hair now…the front right of my hair is totally white and you can see it is much more orange than the rest after henna! So over time mine is liable to become more yellowy red/orange and less bluey red because there will be more white.

It does mean I have to my roots regularly though…white roots with red hair makes it look like your hair fell out if you leave them! White or grey hair is a “cold” colour and contrasts with red very noticeably. Some people say their grey hair doesn’t take dye or henna at all. To them, I would recommend testing different acidic additions in their mix – wine, lemon juice etc – because that may help. If you’re not anti peroxide, you could also try my sun in mix but do be careful…some people’s hair reacts badly to peroxide – do proper strand tests before you use it all over your head!

image

Sometimes people report their hair changes texture – I am not really sure if mine has but it’s pretty strong and it’s had white bits that have spread since I was 15. But certainly post menopause women’s hair texture tends to change and you may need to adapt the way you care for it.

I am 42 now and for a long time I had very long hair – long enough to sit on – I never trimmed it but I never got split ends. I did henna it though and that improves the condition of your hair. The worst thing that ever happened to my hair was using serums and high performance conditioners. These eventually led to me cutting my hair shorter and shorter because I didn’t know why it was getting frizzy at the ends. The reason was…silicone. Some people can use it. Some can use it occasionally. I can’t use it at all. Silicone makes your hair look and feel softer by literally coating it. But that coating doesn’t necessarily come off with shampoo. And if it doesn’t, it essentially waterproofs your hair and you can’t moisturise or deep condition it. Look out for “cones” in your skincare products too. They can have a similar effect on your skin!

image

One thing I would mention though is that if you are growing your hair (and I am), when it reaches the length mine is now, it’s best to wear it up because the friction of the ends on your clothes can cause breakage and leave some people thinking their hair simply won’t grow past shoulder length. It gets easier to protect the longer it gets. When you can plait it or put it up v quickly with a stick, it’s a lot easier to manage than short hair.

image

Another problem can be friction from your pillow. Silk pillows will prevent that (also better for your face!) – but finding a comfortable way of wearing your hair in bed is a good idea. A very high pony tail that you plait is a good one – or two high pony tails because the weight of your hair needs to be distributed well so it doesn’t pull. If you wear tight pony tails you can actually end up with the hair thinning because it’s being pulled out. But what’s comfortable will vary depending on the position you sleep in. For example – if you sleep on your back two braids might be better. If your hair is heavy, a french plait might prevent pulling. I used to pull my bed 6″ from the wall and sleep with my hair hanging off the bed behind my pillow!  My cat used to hide under the bed and play with it sometimes…that’s probably not good for your hair!

image

My plans for growing my hair out mean I use cone free products (Lush Rehab shampoo…and Lush conditioners – American Cream (contains lanolin), Veganese, Jungle or Happy Happy Joy Joy depending on how my hair is). Henna it and deep condition with coconut oil fortnightly. Have a silk pillow. Don’t use heat or styling products on it. Wear it up most of the time and especially if outside (sun, rain, wind…all can take a toll) or exercising.

So far, without any trims…it’s grown half an inch a month and has no split ends…and that’s after cutting it short 18 months ago. This meant none or my hair had been bleached, dyed or exposed to silicone…so I have a better idea of how my hair respond to being grown out. I have wrecked my hair several times from bleaching it too often and not knowing the perils of silicone and friction damage. We’ll see how it goes!

The Soul of Man Has Been Given Wings | A Message to Humanity

image

From “The Great Dictator”

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah! The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow! Into the light of hope, into the future! The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!”
