So I’ve seen many spells and rituals made by many witches about how to cleanse, but none have been quite as effective as I would want. So I thought I would make my own using some sea inspired tools!
you will need:
🕯 2 white candles
🕯 amethyst (for psyche healing, evokes deep sleep)
🕯 black tourmaline (for grounding and purifying, protective, clears energy blockages)
🕯 sea salt
🕯 sea shells (2)
what to do:
1) take your sea shell(s) and put a little sea salt in them
2) place one shell (with salt inside) nearest your front door
3) place the black tourmaline in the shell on top of the salt
4) take your other shell (with salt inside) and place it at your back door
5) place an amethyst on either side of the shell
6) light your candles as you enchant them with warm, cozy energy and place them in front of or behind your shells. Feel the warmth of the flame, and let it soak into you until you are all warm and cozy inside!
💖 blow out your candle, cozy up into your blankets, and sleep well! wait until the morning to clean up your ritual 💖
(optional) before you start, light some amber and cedar incense (:

I really like all the stuff related to the “Ghost in the Shell” series. At the same time, I know it might be a little tricky to gather the correct order of all episodes and movies of this standout piece of art. So, I’m going to try to help bringing some light into this matter.
Therefore, according to the order of creation and emission (in Japan), it would be the following:
#1 Ghost in the Shell (1995) <– Film
#2 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (2002) <– 24-episode anime series
#3 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2nd GIG (2004) <– 24-episode anime series
#4 Ghost in the Shell: Innocence (or simply ‘Innocence’) (2004) <– Film
#5 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man (2005) <– OVA
#6 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG - Individual Eleven (2005) <– OVA
#7 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Solid State Society (2006) <– Film
#8 Ghost in the Shell 2.0 (2008) <– Film
#9 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Pain (2013) <– OVA
#10 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Whispers (2013) <– OVA
#11 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Tears (2014) <– OVA
#12 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Stands Alone (2014) <– OVA
#13 Ghost in the Shell: The Movie (2015) <– Film
#14 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Alternative Architecture (or simply “Ghost in the Shell AAA”) (2015) <– 10-episode anime series
On the other hand, according to the timeline of the plot, the correct order would be the following:
#1 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Pain (2013)
#2 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Whispers (2013)
#3 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Tears (2014)
#4 Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Ghost Stands Alone (2014)
Instead of these four episodes, you can opt for watching “Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Alternative Architecture”. In any case, you’ll need to watch “Pyrophoric Cult” after these (which are the two last episodes of the so-called “Ghost in the Shell AAA”).
#5 Ghost in the Shell: The Movie (2015)
#6 Ghost in the Shell (1995) or Ghost in the Shell 2.0 (2008)
#7 Ghost in the Shell: Innocence (or simply ‘Innocence’) (2004)
#8 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (2002) or Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man (2005) <– I’d recommend to watch the whole anime season instead of the short OVA since the OVA focuses on the main plot leaving aside the rest.
#9 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2nd GIG (2004) or Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG - Individual Eleven (2005) <– What I previously said is valid for this one too.
#10 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Solid State Society (2006) <– Film
- “Ghost in the Shell 2.0″ is a remastered and enhanced version of the original film.
- “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man” and “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2nd GIG - Individual Eleven” are OVAs focused on the main plot of both seasons of the anime series. This means if you have already watched both seasons of “Stand Alone Complex” you won’t discover anything new.
- “Ghost in the Shell AAA” is a compilation of all the “Ghost in the Shell: Arise” OVAs split up in two parts including a new one called “Pyrophoric Cult”.
Finally, I strongly recommend all of you to enjoy with all of them and to immerse in their deep and awesome reflections.
I must have beeen tired… I laid my head back and woke up 2 or so hours later. I’m not sleeping tonight I guess.
So I upgraded my iMac to Sierra. It works but havent tested everything. As long as iTunes shares out my Library and my apps for ripping and converting work I will be good.
Decided to try making Kava using the quick method, it didnt go well. You basically put hot water in w the Kava, blend it for 4-5 mins and strain through the muslin bag. Problem is, it turns the Kava into fine powder which clogs the bag. Took me 20 minutes of slow careful squeezing to get 1 shell out of 2 and a half shells of water + 3tablespoons of kava… and the last of my good Kava.
I ended up squeezing maybe half a shell more out and then all that was left was so fine a silt there’s no way I’d get the water out so it went down the drain and I spent 10 mins rinsing the bag.
Then made 2 tablespoons in the Alluball for 1.5 shells to make 3 total. I need to order more of this Loa Waka, my fave, as I am now out. I have some Borongoru left but its a much different buzz and I dont care for it as much. I usually do 1tbsn of it in 2-3 of the Loa Waka.
The concentrates are still up for grabs, free, just send me a PM with your interest (keeping in mind they are 15% alcohol per 1oz serving, 4 servings between two bottles) and I’ll fire them your way at no cost. A great way to try Kava if you don’t want to drink nasty dirt water but still get the effect.
So anyway, Im having more of that delicious root beer and going to chill and let this Kava work its major and watch something fun.
*hides face* I’m sorry, I wrote a thing that wasn’t prompted, I couldn’t help myself!
Hope someone enjoys it, promise I’m getting through allll the prompts, no matter how long it takes me!
It’s just something I wrote because the whole, “Pliskin survived the explosion with help from a friend” thing was beckoning me to write something sappy. And I did. So here’s Otacon patching up Snake after he gets his ass knocked out. I like to imagine Snake is a big grouchy kitten about getting patched up. Set directly after Shell 2 blows up in MGS2.
Snake hadn’t exactly told him to head towards the blast site. In fact, it would be reasonable to assume that, given an appropriate amount of time, he probably would have done that thing where he yelled at Otacon
to stay put under any circumstances.

I’ll be doing a YouTube video on this next week. Sharpness is one of those things we all know is important, but how does it work? How important is it? Let’s find out!
▪️Levels of Sharpness The first thing you see is that each weapon has different colors (levels) of sharpness, the G rank purple being the highest. Green sharpness is considered Normal in the fact that you do 100% of your potential damage output for both raw and elemental (a little more for raw). Any lower and you do less damage, any higher and you do more.
Red: 0.50x attack, 0.25x element
Orange: 0.75x attack, 0.50x element
Yellow: 1.00x attack, 0.75x element
Green: 1.05x attack, 1.00x element
Blue: 1.20x attack, 1.06x element
White: 1.32x attack, 1.12x element
Purple: 1.45x attack, 1.20x element
There are also other benefits from high sharpness: your attacks are less likely to bounce off a hard part of a monster. Some weapons like GL have restrictions on some moves if you have low sharpness.
▪️How sharpness consumption works:
One hit (not attack) uses 1 unit of sharpness (except dual blades which use 0.5 per single blade hit due to the fact that a full single attack always takes two hits). Let’s take a look at the G rank Seregios weapons, they have what we often refer to as a ‘sliver’ of purple which is a value of 10.
This means that after 10 hits, your sharpness goes down a level. There are some special cases in which more than 1 unit of sharpness is used:
Gunlance shelling (long/normal): 2
Gunlance shelling (spread): 3
Gunlance Wyvern’s Fire: 10
Gunlance Fullburst: 2x shells (3 for spread)
Lance charge (per hit): 3
Charge Blade elements bursts: 2
Guarding with CB or GS: 2-10
*Any time your attack bounces you lose 2x the sharpness as normal.
*You do not lose sharpness when hitting a teammate with a normal attack
*Seregios melee weapons will restore 5 units of sharpness after 5 evades with the weapon drawn (9 evades if using Lance).
▪️Razor Sharp skill
Arguably one of the best skills in the game, it makes it so sharpness consumption is half. Additionally, if your attack didn’t bounce you have a 50% chance of not losing any sharpness at all. However the best way to think of it is double the sharpness.
That means that the 10 purple above would last 20 attacks instead of 10 (and Seregios weapons restore 5 units at a time which is equal to 10 hits instead of just 5!). That means a longer output of maximum damage, so stronger than fast sharpen. This is also why it’s a hard skill to get early on, and is very hard to pair with sharpness+1, but easy to pair with the end game skill honed blade.
While I have not verified it myself, many claim the because the game throws away decimals after 1, with Razor Sharp a Lance charge hit or spread Gunlance shell take only 1 sharpness.
A quick note, sometimes if your sharpness is high and you attack a very weak spot the game will appear to dip in framerate. What is happening is the game considers these a ‘deep cut’ and since in theory they do a lot of damage, to help balance dps a longer cutting effect is used.
Sharpness is important so bring whetstones to a hunt and maintain high sharpness. Know the difference between white and purple etc so you can make better decisions when comparing weapons to understand which is the best to use.
This cheese filling is fantastic in lasagna, manicotti, or stuffed shells. Or, it can be used as a cheese spread on pita, baguette, toast, etc. It can also be dotted onto homemade pizza or spread on pizza dough, rolled up, and baked for Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Bread. It is a staple around my home.
This is a moderate to high spoons recipe, mostly because of heavy stirring, but it makes a lot and can be frozen in small portions. Also, the manicotti and stuffed shells can be frozen with sauce in individual serving size containers and heated later in a microwave when you are short on time and need a hearty filling meal.
Items you need:
measuring spoons/cups (optional)
cheese grater (optional)
knife for mincing garlic (optional)
15 oz ricotta cheese OR small curd cottage cheese
1 lb frozen chopped spinach (thawed and well drained)
½ cup parmeasan cheese (freshly grated or from a can)
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 tbsp dried minced onion
2 tsp pizza or italian seasoning blend OR 1 tsp each oregano and basil
1 tbsp minced garlic OR about 2-3 cloves, chopped fine (I buy the jarred stuff)
salt and pepper (about ¼-½ tsp each)
Mix all this together in a large bowl, initially it will be very stiff, until well blended. If you want to use this as a spread, cover and refrigerate for a few hours for the seasonings to blend. Or, portion into freezer containers, cover, and freeze for up to 1 month.
Stuffed Shells/Lasagna/Manicotti (It’s all basically the same thing, just different shaped pasta)
9x13 baking dish and/or freezer containers
large pot for cooking pasta (only for stuffed shells)
strainer (for the pasta, only for stuffed shells)
pasta (lasagna noodles, jumbo shells, or tube manicotti noodles)
2 or 3 jars marinara or spaghetti sauce
For Stuffed Shells: cook the pasta according to directions on the box, strain and rinse in cold water until at a comfortable handling temperature. You can do this while you are mixing up the cheese filling.
For Shells and Manicotti: Pour a layer of sauce in your baking pan (at least 1 cup, I dump in a full jar). Fill the pasta with the cheese blend and place in the baking dish. Cover with more sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350F for about 1 hour (1.5 hours for Manicotti).
For Individual Portions of Stuffed Shells or Manicotti: pour ½-¾ cup sauce in freezer container, add in stuffed pasta (the containers I use hold 3 shells or 2 manicotti), top with 1 tbsp sauce per shell or 2 tbsp sauce per manicotti tube. cover and freeze for up to 1 month.(manicotti should sit in the fridge for a few hours before freezing). To reheat, microwave for 4-5 minutes until it’s hot.
For Lasagna: Pour a layer of sauce in your baking pan (same as above). Spread the cheese blend on 3 dry noodles and place in the pan, cover with sauce. repeat these layers until the pan is full. Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 1.5-2 hours.
Optional: you can layer in cooked and drained ground meat to the pasta dishes.
