You know, the music in Sonic games really is amazing. I've also noticed that it seems to be easier for me to concentrate with a Sonic OST in the background. Especially the Unleashed level themes. The day stage music makes me want to move about and is a great energy boost, night stage music is slower paced but still works wonders. Both help me concentrate when I supposed to be working on something.

Legit, I sometimes just turn on the Unleashed OST for background music when I’m at work. Helps me work faster!

joke aside, honey is such a great remedy. you know how you wake up early in the morning and you’re still tired as hell? take a spoon of honey and eat it or even better - spread it on hot toast or replace the sugar in your tea with it for a refreshing surge of energy; the glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost. fever/coughing/sore throat? warm milk and honey may be just the thing to help soothe it.

Unique uses for honey: 

☀ Add honey to tea for a boost of energy and as a healthy sweetener.

☀ Use it to wash your face: Add a bit of honey to your face wash for a cleaner, cleared completion. Add lemon juice.

☀ Make a hair mask: Mix honey with a carrier oil of your choice and two whole, raw eggs. Apply to your hair, covering all of your tresses from root to tip. Leave for thirty minutes to an hour. Rinse out with shampoo. You may have to do it more than once to get it all out.

☀ Put over cuts and scrapes to soothe and heal; honey is an anaesthetic, antibacterial, anti-bacterial, and antiviral. 

☀ Eat honey in the morning to speed up your metabolism.

☀ Preserve fruit, vegetables, and herbs in honey.

☀  Add honey to the bathtub for soft skin and a soothing, relaxing feeling of mind and body.

☀ Take a bit before bed to help you sleep.

hehehe hey! could you post some information on auras please? :))))

Yay! Aura question, thank you for the ask!

Seeing an Aura is a really interesting experience and just like any other form of the craft, it’s a natural gift/tool we ALL have that we can develop over time to benefit the daily lives of ourselves and others. I personally like to try to incorporate an item of clothing or something into my wardrobe with my daily colour(s) to help boost my energy. Honestly, you’ve probably even experienced aura reading before without even realizing it. You know the ‘vibes’ you get off a person? That’s technically aura reading, you just haven’t developed the true belief to see it yet! No worries though, with a little practice you’ll get there. :)

FIRST COMMON MISCONCEPTION I WANT TO CLEAR UP: Our auras are never the same, they are always changing. Yup, always… and not just in colour but, in shape, size and even transparency. 

NOW, THE SECOND MISCONCEPTION I’LL CLEAR UP: Seeing an aura isn’t as easy as staring at your hand over a blank wall or whatever. I’ll give the benefit of the doubt here and say, sure… maaaaayyyybeeee that miiigghhtt be possible for some people… but I never taught myself that way. I think this is more of a placebo effect technique, personally. 

FINALLY THE THIRD MISCONCEPTION I WILL CLEAR UP: There is NO SINGLE correct listing for colour association and meanings. Sure, you’ll find some similarities between some people’s meanings but, it’s important to find your own. While red may make one person think of love, it may make another think of anger. While some people may see multiple layers, others may see tiny shapes. Find your own meanings, you’ll have more successful readings that way. 

BEST WAY TO TEACH YOURSELF HOW TO SEE AN AURA: Become aware of how you’re affected when you’re with a person. Relax and focus on your senses spiritually and don’t overthink it. Just let your ego go and let your eyes and mind lose focus, the best way to see an aura is not to look too hard for it. Just sort of stare off into space when you are first trying to see them and you should start to see a sort of haze wash over the person (at least, I do). This haze will change form, size… etc the more your eyes develop and the more meanings/feelings/associations you make for yourself. Practice makes perfect, aura reading is something that takes time to do properly!

THE SHAPE, POSITIONING, TRANSPARENCY AND SIZE OF THE AURA all have meanings too, it’s not all just about the colour!

  • Some people will see auras as geometric shapes (think of having a diamond from The Sims above everyone’s heads… that’s what some people see!) Obviously the shapes aren’t limited to just diamonds, there’s a bunch and I’m not familiar with their meanings because I don’t see them that way but, I know there are some books out there you can get that explain them more in-depth. Or you can watch this basic youtube video here  :)

  • Another way an aura presents itself could be in seven layers with each layer representing something different. The first represents the physical, the second layer represents feelings, the third layer represents the mental process, the fourth layer represents the astral plane, the fifth layer represents your physical blueprints, the six layer represents your spiritual blueprints and the seventh represents the divine/source/universe. I do not see auras as layers either but, you can read more in-depth about them here!

  • Now, how I see auras is pretty common I believe for those who have redeveloped their natural sight. The colour meanings I use are the ones I have made personal connections with and have written blurbs on in the past (Click HERE for my colour meanings) To me, the aura presents itself as a hazy, almost foggy bubble around a person usually. Aura showing on the RIGHT side represents the things no longer serving us. CENTERED ABOVE THE HEAD represents fantasizing / dreams and current feelings, LEFT SIDE OF BODY represents what’s soon entering your life, IN FRONT OF THE BODY represents the inability to be humble and acting without thinking of the future consequences, BEHIND THE BODY represents procrastination. BRIGHT AND WIDELY EXTENDED represents optimism of current situation,  DARK AND NARROW represents sickness, dissatisfaction and negative feelings, EVEN ALL AROUND represents currently well-balanced in all areas while HOLES OR MISSING SPOTS represent a loss of personal power/willpower or a hard grudge that can’t be easily forgotten. ABSENT / NO AURA AT ALL  represents a defensive nature, a high spiritual block and lack of an open mind for any understanding.

So, as you can see there is A LOT to know about auras, it’s not all just easy peasy, learn ‘er overnight and be the master of readings by the morning. It takes some serious practice, self-exploration for meanings/associations, intense focus and real belief to see them! It is possible though and I wish you the very best of luck!

EDIT: INFORMATIVE ASKS ADDED
 1) Using other senses to read auras
 2) Geometric shapes in auras cont.

Holy macaroni and cheese batman, I hope that novel can help you out in some way haha!  Take care and blessed be.

🍛💪Energy Boost Rice! 💪🍛

A simple recipy I’m trying out, to provide my tummy with some really energetic vibes!

What did I gather? 🌿

Rice for success and prosperity
A Bay leaf for strength, wisdom, success and prosperity
A bit of Rosemary for mental power
Some Ginger for success and prosperity
A pinch of Oregano for strength and energy
Some Cinnamon for strength, wisdom, success and prosperity
A pinch of salt, of course
In addition, I used some oil and draw a sigil on the bottom of my bowl to signify that “I have energy”

It smells so good!!!!! 😊😊😊

I’ve been feeling uncharacteristically tired lately, and my normal pick-me-ups haven’t been working. I guess it’s time for a little magickal boost.


Roe’s (Quick) Magickal Pick-Me-Up (for the tired witch)

This potion is intended to provide the drinker with a cool energy, and is best drank in the morning.

What You’ll Need:

  • Sparkling water
  • Lemon balm (or lemon slices if it’s easier)
  • Mint leaves
  • A clear jar or container
  • (Optional) Crystals that provide energy boosts, such as Bloodstone, Citrine, or Aventurine.
What You’ll Need to Do:
  1. Take your sparkling water and fill your jar/container. Once you have the desired amount, find a place in direct sunlight and leave the water there to charge for an hour (to boost the water further, surround the jar/container with the crystals if you wish). If you can, place the water in sunlight, when the sun is at its highest.
  2. Once the water is charged, remove it from the sunlight and add the mint leaves and lemon balm. 
  3. Leave it to infuse for 12-24 hours in a refrigerator. 
  4. Strain the herbs out of the water, and sip/drink as you need it. The drink will be cool, refreshing and a provide a quick boost of energy.
  5. You may store this drink in a refrigerator for up to 3 days. After that, do not consume it. Make a new batch.

Notes: If you placed crystals around the water as it charged in the sun, carry them on your person to further enhance the energy boost.

Charging objects or water in the sun imbues whatever you’re using with the sun’s energy, and with the Sun being a big ol’ fiery ball of gaseous gloriousness, what better choice do we have to give ourselves a boost!

hey emma! got any tips for staying awake? i pulled an all nighter because i have lots of homework due and i thought it was a good idea at the time, haha... ^^;

Hi! A few things you could try include:

  • eating something that gives you energy - apples are probably best, but I guess a small amount of sweets might be more enjoyable hah!
  • drink a glass of ice cold water
  • go for a little walk - either around your street, in your house, wherever you can.
  • put on some of your favourite music - it will wake up since you’ll want to dance and sing along.
  • have a nap - napping for different amounts of time will do different things for instance:
    • 10-20 minutes (power naps): enhances alertness and concentration, elevates mood, and sharpens motor skills. Coffee takes 20 to 30 minute to take effect so if you want to boost alertness, have a cup before napping.
    • 45 minutes: helps to boost energy, creative thinking and boosts sensory processing.  Try setting an alarm to avoid the feeling of sleep inertia, grogginess, and disorientation which comes with the next phase of sleep.
    • 90 minutes: clear your mind, improve memory recall, and recoup lost sleep. By waking up after 90 minutes you’ll avoid the feeling of sleep inertia as you wake up from REM sleep.
  • wash your face or shower with cold water - again, it will boost how alert you’re feeling!
  • turn on a bright light.

Hope this gives you a few ideas! Try not to make late nights a habit. Sleep is so important, especially for students x

Mint mudcrab mojito

With spring in bloom for those of you in the northern hemisphere, it’s time to break out your glasses as the weather warms up! This refreshing beverage is delicious with or without alcohol, and the briskness of fresh mint will give you a boost of energy. I like to make a big jug of this to keep in the fridge when I have company over, no matter the season- nobody can say no to a mojito!

You will need:
2-3 sprigs of fresh mint (about 15 leaves)
½ lime, cut into wedges
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 shot white rum
1 shot creme de menthe
½ cup soda water
Ice cubes

Method:
In a tall glass, combine the mint and lime wedges, and muddle thoroughly to release the juice and aromas. Add the sugar and muddle again until mixed well. Add the rum and creme de menthe, then fill the glass up with ice and pour in the soda water. Stir well and enjoy. Cheers!
