Selfie of the Day

Working on the veranda copying work files to my Samsung Tablet – 128GB from Amazon Prime only £25 now. Tablet hopefully will make emailing students and clients easier – and social networking too. My mobile is too full of apps that sometimes I can’t sync my email! But if I am writing a blog in the bath, the phone suits more than a tablet.

Gorgeous rainy day and listening to the Gatsby soundtrack as usual – working in the garden with my dogs.

General Upd8 | Midwich Cuckoos | Autism | Aspergirl | High Functioning | NPD | Ax Men | ASMR in Magick

image

#nomakeupselfie #selfieoftheday #cremedelamer complexion in the bedroom listening to an #audible on my #kindlefire waiting for my #TeddyBoy.

I’ve been trying to write a blog for 3 days about the #midwichcuckoos effect I notice in some ppl faced w/ a #highfunctioning #autistic. I am an #Aspergirl (#Aspergers is a kind of #Autism). But I also study psychology…I practice #magick so I think that’s important. But this current blog is going all over the place. I can’t seem to make my point without ending up trying to illustrate it with anecdotes that rapidly wind up off topic.

Think I may leave it a few days b4 I try again 😛

I think I’ve written so much about #narcissisticpersonalitydisorder #npd that wherever I begin, I keep writing abt them to illustrate the difference in autism. #narcos are like the polar opposite of autistics. Terrible personality clash. But comparing atypical to atypical isn’t v helpful in explaining what is unique to the #autiste!

Grrr. I’m frustrating myself. I may write about something else and come back to my Midwich Cuckoo one.

Soooo. Tonight the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive cycle begins. http://www.mayamagickal.net/killingmoon.htm

The opening ritual is quite long and I will complete it after I chill with my #TeddyBoy…have some dinner…watch some #Axmen and #idchannel.

I’m really excited about developing my #asmr skills…it’s something I have always used in magick. Also in my personal #meditation work. But I have some ideas for applications I would like to explore. Not #roleplay or #sex – I think #asmr works well to help relax the conscious mind…but retain a higher level of concentration. Such as you would using meditation. Anyway…I will be experimenting with that soon…and will share poss on my youtube and also my wordpress…see how it goes.

Update Mayastar & Maya Magickal | Spells | Reversals | Justice | Lunar Magick | Planetary Rulers | Rebalancing Energy | Eliminating Karmic Bonds | Morality | Manipulation & Abuse | Dance | Choreography | Full Moon

Today’s face of thunder #nomakeupselfie…

When u find out you been played…and realise sometimes #magick is the only way to break a negative karmic bond with someone who doesn’t have #selfawareness or #principles.

“You can’t reason with the unreasonable.”

But you def don’t want them messing with your energy and skewing your balance.

So tonight, my #pms combined with the #fullmoon and influences of Jupiter, I think working #Nataraj Dance of Destruction Reversal Ritual (focused on invoking justice – it’s a good #spell for tweaking in that way), would be the best fit! Plus I have a new choreographed version for tweaking the Nataraj Working for Justice and not a simple reversal as the two are so often requested together. So, tonight will be the first casting of the new one…a bit exciting to see how it will work. If it doesn’t “flow” I think perhaps it would be a good choreographical addition to the #Valkyrie working.  But feel the reversal element is essential to a a Justice By Right spell. I may end up doing a new spell for this option ultimately so watch this space! Xx

Still spaces for any spells/rituals Friday, Saturday – http://www.mayamagickal.net

Sorry office admin side is a bit behind. All attunements etc up to date and certificates being processed  Today’s face of thunder #nomakeupselfie…

Bathtime Blogging | Aspergers | Social Media | Spiritual Development | Mineral Makeup | Reiki Healing | Meditation | Spells | Mayastar Specials

image

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

I better sign off…bubblebath blogging and the water is getting chilly…and my Teddy Boy is due for dinner and some Studio Ghibli entertainment soon.

A Bubblebath Blog…written on my phone while I soak and do my best pondering with my pampering!

image

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!?)

image

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!

Personal Upd8 | Henna | Beauty Tips | Natural Skincare | Veganism | Make Up Free Selfies | Lush | Creme de la Mer

image

Bf away yesterday so had a loooong bath. So current personal beauty tips…

Henna & coconut oil perfect redhead with tidy roots. Tinted & tidied eyebrows. Tinted eyelashes. If you keep the basics covered & use quality moisturiser (Creme de la Mer & Oz Naturals Hyalauronic Acid serum), get lots of exercise…don’t drink or smoke, you can get away with #nomakeupselfie pix!

I think my plant based vegan diet makes a big difference. Using lush cosmetics yellow fun for washing & sympathy for the skin twice a day and I’m really soft all over. Happy days!

It is laziness & boho style that means I don’t have time for makeup except tinted lipbalm (hint of fuschia) – but it’s working pretty well!
