Whispering Witch ASMR Heart to Heart – Informal Informative
Tonight…what’s the difference between Magick & Witchcraft? Different paths to enlightenment.
It’s me! #selfieoftheday showing Mineral Magic Mineral Powder (no concealer or anything…this is just the powder, appied with a kabuki brush over Creme de la Mer), eyebrows defined with wunderbrow & lush cosmetics strawberry bombshell tinted lipbalm. I am kind of testing the mineral magic. I don’t wear make up as a rule but when I do it is usually just powder, lipstain and a pair of sunglasses!
So I am wearing mineral magic when I sleep and over moisturiser, over serum, when exercising. Just doing as much as I can with it to see if it irritates around the eyes, dries the skin around my nose, causes spots etc. So far I absolutely love the stuff but am gonna continue my totally unscientific testing as I want to blog about it. I am sure I am not the only 42 year old woman who can’t be bothered with REAL makeup! So, along with my random blogs I think beauty tips and haircare is something that I consider enough to share with my followers.
By the way, I know many people who follow me are current, previous or potential students & clients of www.mayastar.net and www.mayamagickal.net – but I know some follow my artwork too. Or are into similar things (henna, magick, ballet, dance, hiphop, corsetry, preraphaelite art, poetry, tightlacing, meditation – I think some probably find a bit of a kindred spirit because of my autism – I’m aspergers which is a kind of high functioning autism – or maybe just like my style!), but I really do appreciate it!
On my various social networks I have 29000 followers at the moment and it seems amazing – and flattering in a way too. I’m not a natural when it comes to putting myself out there but because my work is online (teaching distance learning courses for spiritual development & self realisation mostly), it’s important for me to be as accessible as possible while keeping a balance.
I think my students and clients find it reassuring…they are able to get a “feel” for me as a person and my principles…and also my interests. I think that can help connect in a more personal way than I would be able to do in real life. Not because I am antisocial but more because my autism means I relate and communicate far more effectively through writing than through speaking. In most ways I am a natural hermit…but that’s a bonus in the work I do. I also think people feel more able to open up to me in a constructive way when it means they have to consider their words and articulate their thoughts and feelings in a way that encourages selfawareness far more than speaking does.
This can be an essential part of tailoring magickal work for people. I don’t advertise my magickal work as so much comes from recommendations…which is a good thing! I don’t ask people to review my magickal work because it’s v personal. I am a psychotherapist and qualified in counselling which I think also helps…but I wouldn’t advertise that either. So most online reviews are for my teaching work. There are quite a few on www.linkedin.annalouisemay.net and some of www.maya.mayastar.net (FB) too…and quite a few testimonials on the http://www.mayastar.net testimonials page. But for people interested in attunement work, I think the articles on MS – especially www.mayastar.net/courseswork.htm, help people to understand what I do and whether it’s a good fit for them. Likewise, the articles on Maya Magickal that explain what I do and my experience etc, are helpful to people considering whether my work may assist them in their personal goals.
Social media does seem a strange addition…my blogs are not exactly themed and pretty much cover my hobbies and thoughts. But I do think it’s an added dimension to online presence that’s helpful in a way that’s evolved with my work 🙂
Obviously if you work for yourself, regardless of how vocational you consider that work, advertising, marketing and letting people know you exist is important. An example is, if you wanted a new credit card you would put it in google and find the best fit for you. Whereas my services may sometimes be searched for but more often are found by people who didn’t know this kind of energy work was available – so people more often find me when looking for something similar rather than looking for me.
Gosh…that was a looong blog. I hope it makes some sense. In a nutshell, thank you to those who follow me! I really appreciate it. X

A Bubblebath Blog…written on my phone while I soak and do my best pondering with my pampering!
Regular followers of my feeds will know, me and my Teddy Boy spend every evening today. We are both self employed so we organise our schedules that way. We did eventually decide to not see each other Tues and Sat nights cos Sat I have a lot of Spell Work and Wednesday he has a v early start. But this week I have been seeing my sis, he had a funeral and is out with his friends tonight.
Yesterday he had a really long driving job and by the time he got home I was going to bed…so this week has been all over the place! But thoughtful as ever…he picked me up a toy lion on his travels! (He knows me too well eh!?)
I am calling him Aslan as that was my first thought and I am a fan of the books…weirdly my sister and I were discussing them recently. And weirder…around Xmas he came over for a joke in a huggybear 70s pimp style really massive faux fur coat. And after I stopped laughing, he realised my aspergirl brain hadn’t got the joke as it was intended (some jokes are extra funny if you share them with someone with aspergers – we hear horses and we’re as likely to think unicorns, zebras, coconuts all at once, as we are to think horses!).
So when he asked why I was laughing…I said “erm…are we going to Narnia”, “you’re a 1950s transsexual”…”a pimp”…”a gangsta”…and various outlandish guesses which seemed to make it even funnier.
So as soon as I saw the lion, C. S. Lewis came to mind.
But I looked up the symbolism associated w/ lions. From the Sphinx to Richard The LionHeart”. On my mind also was the fact that leo is my rising sign and my dad was a leo. The fact that the lion is called the king of the jungle & everyone calls Spider Elvis who was aka The King.
It seemed a very meaningful list of associations somehow. But Aslan had been my first thought so I did some research…ok…I looked on Wikipedia! And did you know, Aslan isn’t just a made up name? It’s Turkish for lion.
Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia is the allegorical Christ. I have always enjoyed them because of their more natural and almost pagan expression of Jesus in this way which is more in keeping with my personal beliefs.
My favourite quote comes from the Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe, where Mister Beaver informs Peter that “of course he isn’t safe…but he is good”. I have a strong belief personally in the purity of true wildness…uncorrupted. It may imply “unsafe” to some but for me it definitely emphasises the natural, uncompromising nature. And I find that very inspirational. I believe people are wild at heart…that our apparent domestication is superficial in many ways. But that the soul is wild, beautiful and therefore “good” in it purity.
I am not a Christian myself…and ideas of heaven and hell remind me that if we choose to deny our true nature, we may become restricted and damaged in ways that don’t condemn us to a hellish eternity, but which make it harder for the soul to aspire to its connection with “God”. God is such a loaded word, I tend to refer to “it” as Mother Father God, The Oneness, The Wholeness or (more poetically) The Power That Moves the Universe.
My main work, through Mayastar and Maya Magickal is the expression of my intention to help people remember that connection to Wholeness…not through religion…but through personal practices that form part of their individual path.
So…in my world, even a soft toy lion can remind me of what I believe and inspire me to share it…hoping others may find inspiration too!
Xxx With blessings x
And relax ♡ In bed listening 2 my latest fr #Amazon #audible books. Curr have #Yogananda Revelations of #Christ, comp work of #edgarallanpoe & a mystery thriller type novel on the go.
My pooks (aka BF) has just gone home & unusally I won’t see him 4 two days in a row! I can’t believe we’re both so soppy & carry on like love sick teenagers! But it’s damn refreshing after my last relationship that def caused me more stress than it ever brought me happiness. Spider’s fun. But he looks after me too. And spoils me. It feels amazing to be w/ someone who IS God’s Gift…not someone who THINKS they are! LOL
Winding down in a snuggly bed…surrounded by #Lalaloopsy dolls, #DragonsBlood & #NagChampa incense burning & an earthy smelling #LilyFlame candle.
