the weirdest part of adulthood thus far is when people you knew Back In The Day start having babies and their personality & social media presence jst dissolves into “i have a baby”. granted it’s not all of them, but it’s weird to see someone’s feed descend into “mommy & memes” like that when you knew them before
So out of curiosity, I want to find out what neurodivergencies and physical illnesses most commonly co-occur with autism. I would super appreciate it if any autistic people reading this would take a couple minutes to fill out the survey. All autistic people, self diagnosed and professionally diagnosed are welcome to take this survey.
Once the survey is done, I’ll collect the info and make some fun charts to share with everyone.
Please share this survey far and wide so we can get results from a wide variety of autistic people.
Also how do you charge things and what exactly does that do?
We’re going to use crystals for examples just to keep things clear but you can charge literally anything. Charging is essentially temporarily filling your crystal with temporary intent and energy. For example you can charge your rose quartz one night to help you found self love and appreciation, and then later cleanse it and charge it for a passion/sex inducing crystal if you want. Another example would be amethyst, you could charge it one night to aid you in astral projection and then the next day use it to aid in sleep or meditation. There’s a couple ways you can go about charging your crystals/items.🌿
Leave it in the sun for a little! Charging my crystals and herbs under the sunlight is one of my favorite things to do, the sun is such a warm constant energy to pull from.
Charging the following crystals in the sun will damage them or cause them to fade: Aventurine, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Beryl, Citrine, Kunzite, Sapphires, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz. Although Amber & Opal may not fade in the Sun, they can become brittle from the sun causing them to crack so I have added them to this list as well.
Moonlight, a lot of witches I know specifically charge under the full moon. Don’t fret if you miss the peak full moon, the full moon usually lasts around three days. Leaving crystals out in moonlight not only cleanses them but can also charge them!
Different moon phases have different meanings and you can charge your crystals based on the phase and your intent. @orriculum made a fun little moon phase chart you can findhere!
Sound is another fun option! Everything has a vibration, especially sound. Since we are helping to set a crystal’s vibrations back to its original state or help alter it to a new one, it makes sense that sound can help us with that.
I tend to use my voice in song if I want to use sound because I’m practitioner of galdr, throat signing, bowls, chanting, music you love, all work too!
Visualization or Reiki. You can cleanse and give your crystals an extra little energy boost with Reiki energy or your own. Simply hold the crystals in between your hands as you and infuse them with the energy. It always helps me if I visualize the energy flowing through my body as a shimmering gold light and I pull it from different parts of my body into my hands. When my hands start to feel warm i focus on transferring the energy and intent!
Smoke cleansing - not smudging. Lavender, palo santo, and sage are other wonderful energy cleansers. You simply run your crystals through the smoke or waft the smoke over your crystals. This method also cleanses any of the areas around your house. You can honestly just use incense, that’s what I do and plenty of scents work for cleansing.
Chamomile, jasmine, lavender, safe, palo santo, frankincense, myrrh, pine, sage, patchouli, and rain incense all work well for me!
Alternatively, you could just throw whatever you’re trying to work into a handful of cleansing herbs. I tend to leave my crystals in lavender a lot.
Water! When I run my crystals under running tap water in the sink I visualize the water cleaning out any negative energy. This will get them clean physically as well as cleanse their energies. Keep in mind that there are some crystals that you need to avoid putting in water. A good general rule of thumb is to not submerge crystals with a MOH hardness level of 5 or less.
Also if you are going to keep the crystal in the water for a long period of time, make sure it does not contain iron – like Hematite, Magnetite, and Lodestone – because it can cause them to oxidize. Other crystals will dissolve in water like selenite, halite, rock salt, calcite, opal and more! Do research before putting your rocks in water to make sure it’s not toxic or such.
There’s probably more but dinners done and I’m hungry. I hope this helped!
Years together, training, working and having fun, reaching the charts as a team. Being the only girl in BTS, the boys continued to support your hardships. But what happens, when some of them starts paying attention to other females, specially ones you have had a rough past with.
A/N: Instead of random text convos, I made it to a series. Enjoy!
Here’s a taste of what it’s going to be like, though this story is going to be slightly different.

pages 259 261 and 262 - sometimes, I like to pretend I’m not attached to floor with a chain and the dungeon I’m in isn’t just a room with a single door set high up on the wall. I like to pretend I am free to walk around and explore, and one day while pushing my fingers between two rocks something gives and a section of stone pulls away to reveal the entrance to a hidden labyrinth. I would walk down the dark path heedless of danger, thinking anything is better than sitting in one spot for eternity. Carefully making my way through the maze I would eventually find the end and my just reward. This one says money, but I’m thinking maybe a shower and sunlight and/or freedom. And if there’s a case of mineral and vitamin rich health shakes that will stop my body from disintegrating, all the better.
