Any crystals for memory or clear thinking? Or relieving stress and staying calm? I have exams coming up so anything that might help would be great! :)

I personally pick all of my crystals off of feel. I pick them up and go “okay, what does this feel like it would be good for”, so I don’t know if my recommendations would mean anything. But for memory, I’d go with something like an obsidian- black, clean and sharp in color. For clear thinking, I’d pick a clearer stone- quartz or calcite, maybe. For staying calm and stress relief- I’d tell you to go with something smooth and something that is in a color that you feel calm with (for me, this would be pastel based colors- light teals, purples, yellows, pinks).

Don’t be afraid to use your gut to pick stones, though :)

I COULDNT RESIST! A, B, G, J, K, O, Q, T, V, W, X, Y, Z. Too many great questions!

I was not expecting so many! I’m not complaining though, I have nothing else to do! :)

A - If you could get away with one murder in your lifetime without any legal, social, or emotional repercussions, would you kill someone? 

Yes, I totally would as long as they actually deserved it. Like, if they were a child abuser or a rapist or something really horrible.

B - What is your first thought when you receive a message on Tumblr, are you excited for the idea of someone from potentially the other side of the world wanting to talk to you or fearful that someone will criticize you? 

I usually just expect someone to be pissed off about hunting and for some reason decide to have a bitch at me, thats like at least 60% of all my messages. So I’m pleasantly surprised when its a nice message :3

G. Would you rather burn or freeze to death? 

Freeze, definitely. Burning alive is the worst way to die in my opinion.

J. Could you live without having sex ever (again) in exchange for eternal youth? 

Yes! Being young forever would be the greatest thing.

K. Have you ever watched a full length pornographic movie? 

Nope, I don’t think I could stand it haha. I can’t take it seriously, I just find them really ridiculous and end up laughing.

O. Would you rather spend one year with your one true love just to never see them again or the rest of your life with second best? 

Probably the rest of my life with second best. I’d rather not know what it was like to lose someone that I considered my one true love, even it meant I never meet them.

Q. Would you rather be dirt poor and emotionally fulfilled in life or be rich beyond imagination and emotionally dissatisfied for life? 

Poor and emotionally satisfied. 

T. If everyone in the world would automatically only know one language, which language would you choose? 

English is the only language I speak, so I guess I’d have to pick that. I love the sound and look of Japanese (I learnt that for a year but I’ve forgotten it all) though so maybe that.

V. A world without religion, good, bad, neutral? 

Hrmm. I don’t really think that its religion itself that causes problems, just people unable to accept other religions and other beliefs. I guess it would be good overall, a lot of hate and killing would stop. But it would be a bit sad if everyone just accepted that when you die, you die. Its nice to hear people believe in the afterlife, even if I don’t actually entirely believe it myself.

W. The men’s rights movement, legitimate cause or laughable, and why? 

Fucking laughable. Mostly because the only MRAs I’ve seen have been claiming that compared to women men are oppressed, and that feminists only want power and to destroy men. White men have a shit ton of extra privileges, and white men are the only ones complaining! Men and woman should be equal, but that's not what MRAs want.

X. You can eliminate one of your five senses to substantially strengthen the others, which one and would you do it? 

Taste, because then I could just eat whatever and not have to worry about it tasting good or bad.

Y. Do looks mean anything to you? Don’t lie, could you fall in love with someone you thought was ugly? 

They don’t mean a lot to me. I can definitely look past looks if the person is really awesome, but I guess there would be a line somewhere. Physical attraction is a part of love too, so if someone isn’t attractive to you there’s not much you can do to overcome it.

Z. Can you understand the mindset and logic used by the opposite spiritual opinion? An atheist understanding the belief in a higher power and vice versa.

Yeah totally. I’m pagan (still searching for my specific path) but I can understand why other people would believe or wouldn’t believe in a specific god or gods. I don’t understand why people fight about it or try and convert you though.

Hey guys! I have a question about animism. I’ve been drawn to it and have been researching it quite a bit, but I’m slightly confused as to what it really is. I’m thinking something along the lines of everything (including animals, plants, rocks, mountains, rivers, rain etc) has a soul or spirit. Is there anything else that it entails? And any good resources to have a look at? Thanks :)

freedominwilderness

Yes, that’s what animism is. There’s not more to the basic meaning, really; it changes slightly based on the religious context it’s in, but in essence, you’re correct.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any good sources for you. If any of our followers or other moderators do, I’m sure they’ll pitch in.
