My pookie (aka Elvis) out tonight doing TeddyBoy stuff. I’m in, and taking my routine at a decadent pace!

I have mentioned before, sometimes I have real problems editing my blogs. Apparently this is not uncommon with Higher Functioning Autism…my brain jumps from idea to idea…and touch typing means most blogs I intend as articles end up more of a stream of consciousness. Covering too many topics and ending up a bit of mess! Some are fine. But some I am not at all pleased with. So, as far as blogging goes, I’m still “developing my style”.

My blogs are intended to be informal rather than scientific articles. Just blogs about things that interest me. General updates in my personal life. Ponderings on the philosophy of magick (as a path to Self-Realisation) and psychology.

Many blogs are inspired by questions from students and clients of Maya Magickal Spells & Personalised Initiation Programmes and Mayastar Academy Online Natural Energy Healing & Spiritual Development Courses – but at the same time, I include articles about my hobbies…so it is a bit varied. A blog about how I get “grunge hair” without using heat or styling products; a review of a mineral powder foundation; how I mix my henna for an easier rinse etc. It’s intended to personal…but also informative. I think in the main it appeals to peoole who are a bit like me and share my interests or hobbies.

So I hope my blog is useful and people enjoy it. But I do see there needs to be some change with my editing failure. Bear with me – I’m sure I will strike a balance at some point!

However, since I uploaded my first YouTube video at Christmas (because my nephew pressed record when I tried to get a nice family photo)…I have been wondering if maybe vlogging could be more suitable for some of my blogs. Possibly even make some things more accessible.

At first I thought I wouldn’t have the confidence to be able to do it. So, I have mulled it over a lot. Considering how I could approach it. What would feel right. And how it might be received.

My aspergers also means I sometimes don’t speak…or I speak quietly. And that was a concern – would vlogging mean the stream of consciousness style was a problem with videos too? Would I feel it was too personal or intrusive as well.

I have been working with ASMR quiet speaking in my magickal work for a long time. I even choreographed some silent rituals or rituals that only have chants. And it’s worked very well for me. And because I am nocturnal I find by nature, I tend to whisper a lot as a way of naturally winding down at bedtime after my meditation work is finished.

So it’s that habit that gave me the idea for the format I would like to work with.

I really have no idea if it would be interesting to other people. I know I’m not the only ASMR fan out there but I am not planning random brushing sounds or hypnotic role play style vids. My plan was to use part of my day to record a “chat”. And to keep it varied and informative and informal. Relaxing and with relaxing background sounds etc.

I’m intending the format to work for me and viewers. But the channel to be a new way to share information that I haven’t tried before. It may even work well as a way to talk about subjects I intend to blog about later – a way to help me to avoid my stream of consciousness blog problem!

I know trolling on YouTube can be pretty bad…but definitely trolls a minority. Just a small minority with a big mouth! So I may get some negative feedback. That isn’t a problem. Constructive criticism is useful.
.destructive criticism is something I ignore. And the only way to see if it works will be to bite the bullet and try it!

I tried a few sample recordings and realised the mic on my mobile is not sufficient…too much hiss which would be problem with the quiet speaking/whispering style. Though I will upload one from my phone because I would like to see the difference in quality with my (brand spanking new) camcorder!

It took a while to find one that has an audio input. But for the style I want to use, it’s going to be essential.

Also the camera I chose is small and has a built in stand. Which will help keep my vids informal. A bit of the vibe of a personal chat. Hoping if people like the style and the content, it will be a fantastically useful way to share info and ideas.

So…watch this space!

Reflections in an Epic Bath | Loved Up | Macchiato | Teddy Boy | Cupid | Cancer | & Happiness

#lushcosmetics #butterball bath w/ led mood lighting & loud music. #SongOfTheDay #LanaDelRey #IcanFly fr #BigEyes OST. #lyricsoftheday 

“I had a dream that I was fine
I wasn’t crazy, I was divine”

Newsletter to send tonight 4 www.mayamagickal.net & www.mayastar.net special offers (www.mayastar.net/special.htm). The Maha #Kali #Tantric #Shamanic #Exorcism #spell is v popular & the #Avalonian Alignment #EnergyHealing & #Meditation Attunement course ♡

#TeddyBoy due for dinner but I’m going to get an early one as my sis over 2mw for a #vegan #Starbucks breakfast/lunch. So wowed by #soy #macchiato that I wonder why I didn’t go vegan earlier!

Spider (my #TeddyBoy) is the sweetest – paying for my lunch! He has old fashioned values and some people might find that a bit objectionable b/c political correctness def not his strong suit! But he is the most hard working, kindest & most considerate bf I’ve ever had. And I’m being objective when I say that. He really is. And far from being objectionable, I find it refreshing to be w/ someone like him. Gorgeous admittedly and build like a bouncer! But always encouraging me in my work and helping me in practical ways as well as being a romantic.

I met him through my dad really…I think my dad was playing matchmaker right up to the end (dad died last year of a brain tumour). It’s the strangest thing to think on last year…dad was dying but we had the greatest fun jamming in the garden and me doing my fave #carnival and #hiphop fusion in the garden. And Spider lives two doors down and would watch me dance and chat w/ me and dad. He always has my back and was really supportive through everything. And I fell for him but was always a bit worried it was circumstances that had thrown us together and it might not last. I was v honest a about that b/c I would hate to hurt him. But we spent Christmas together…and now it’s nearly valentine’s day and we’re still both deeply smitten!

So thinking of last year…losing dad was terrible…but me & Spider…I’ve never been so happy!

So shout out to dad! I don’t know if he made an angel when he arrived the other side, but he was a fantastic #cupid right up to the end! Massive love 🙂

Happy Days | Lalaloopsy | Teddy Boys | Magick | Resolutions | Veganism | Lush | Lana Del Rey | Big Eyes

image

I love…waking up in a mess of Lalaloopsy BuildaBear dolls! My TeddyBoy has given me loopsy fever and I have ten of them! Candyfloss scented…four in their official costumes…four in PJs (I still hug teddies to sleep and the official costumes were not so cuddly!). And two additional dolls as Princess Anna and Princess Elsa – special additional Christmas memento. My first Christmas without dad…my first Christmas with my TeddyBoy…and my first Christmas dinner as a vegan!

Have had tons of temple work from Solstice onwards. New Year is a special time for people making resolutions and magick can help with clearing the decks and creating suitable energies to support change. It’s great to be able to help and inspiring to work with people who are inspired!

Happy happy days!

Current fave music still Lana Del Rey – fave album Honeymoon and fave track undecided but I actually favour those for the Big Eyes soundtrack at the moment.

Time for a Lush bubble bath (adoring Love and Light hand cream which I am using as a body lotion at the moment).

Then prep my special plant based vegan stew to put on for 2mrw (soooo convenient and filled with superfood veggies!)…do a little admin…then my man will be over to chill before I do attunements and spell work followed by my personal meditation work before I pick up on my Yogananda book about the Hindu understanding of AscendedMaster Jeshua (Jesus) and his message of devotional practice which is so akin to Bhakti Yoga as to be extremely congruent with my own personal religious observations.

So I’ll get on…BubbleBath is calling!

I love… | Decorating | Being a Hippie | All Things Pink | Vegan Nutcutlets | Lana Del Rey | Laughing | Celebrating with Elvis

image

I love…being the only PreRaphaelite Fairy Princess going steady with the only Teddy Boy in the neighbourhood. Happy birthday to Elvis for midnight! Planning to celebrate with some well earned rest…if I can make him take a little break from painting. The office is coming on with a serious case of being pink as the decorating continues – see pix…going seriously vibrant with the transformation!  Hall and the living room will be darker (purple and a deeper pink). The hallway will be done at the same time because it will be either dark pink or purple. Very dramatic!

Loves of the day are: Lush Cosmetics, bubbleBath, Lana Del Rey, lemon water, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs & vegan nut cutlets, foot massages, being a girlie hippie (bobo princess) & hanging out with my bf.

Also love the silly banter we break into when we’re doing DIY together. Usually starting with someone making a MightyBoosh quote: “Do I look like a reasonable man? Or a peppermint nightmare?” – starts a stream of messing about that ended up with me rolling on the floor in hysterics while he tried to pull my pants down and paint by bum blue!

He’s funny…silly…but damn kind and really thoughtful. So I’m dying to celebrate his birthday. I got him some great presents…and I can’t wait to see his face light up.

Better have a bath…he’ll be home soon ♡♡♡ Yay!

Happy days hipsters! Stay free; keep smiling;  be nice to each other; & ShareTheLove

Today I love… | Henna, Perfume, Creme de la Mer

image

I love…well! Tons of stuff 2dy. I love #CremedelaMer because it means #nomakeup #selfieoftheday pix are possible when I first get up of an afternoon (#nocturnal #nocturnalwonderland).

And I love…when my roots are freshly #Henna red & my hair is in #plaits, smelling of #Lush #AmericanCream conditioner (sooooo #vanilla!).

Trying to choose my #perfumeoftheday to compliment my hair…which is about to set free in a v #hippie, kinda #gothic but supremely #PreRaphaelite fuzz (according to #Elvis, v #KateBush)…and am torn between #AnnaSui #rockme, #thierrymugler #angel, #prada #candy or #marcjacobs #daisydream. Decisions decisions.

#Ootd will be teal #broderieanglaise v #victorian…marginally #goth…and wickedly #bohemian. Think…#VanessaIves (#PennyDreadful) as a #redhead and on ‘down day’..or a slightly more colourful #steampunk…always a total #princess of course!) ♡

And soundtrack today? Still flipping from #patienceandprudence (#ahsmurderhouse #tateandviolet) and #LanaDelRey #Honeymoon and #ultraviolence (#hipster #grunge #hiphop). So…a generally #kookie vibe that compliments my generally kookie vibe!

Happy days ♡ I’d better get myself into a #bubblebath & do some work ♡♡♡

Have a fabulous day!

Lana Del Rey Honeymoon – first impressions x

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one waiting for my #LDR #Honeymoon to download last night! It was worth waiting for. The early release tracks gave a bit of an idea of vibe but I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I was so blown away by the dark turn when #Ultraviolence came out.

But…I love #Honeymoon! After a few listens I am already picking favourites and there isn’t a track I don’t like or think I would skip over. I think #HighByTheBeach is my favourite. So far. But love #GodKnowsITried too.

“God knows I live
God knows I died
God knows I begged
Begged, borrowed and cried
God knows I loved
God know I lied
God knows I lost
God gave me life
And God knows I tried”
