The “allegory of the long spoons” teaches us that when we struggle to feed only ourselves, everyone goes hungry. But when we focus on our neighbour’s hunger, we discover there are ways to feed everyone.

The fourth chakra is located in the heart. It deals with love, and is blocked by grief. Lay all your grief out in front of you. You have indeed felt a great loss. But love is a form of energy, and it swirls all around us.The Air Nomads love for you has not left this world. It is still inside of your heart, and is reborn in the form of new love. Let the pain flow away.

bleeeehhh really sickening seeing posts about wicca that are clearly bastardizing parts of indigenous religions…. you dont have a spirit animal, smudging is appropriation & dreamcatchers, unless bought from an authentic source for their intended use, are not for you to just hang around as pretty “boho” decorations😤

practice your religion without stealing anyone elses its really not difficult

The best way of service to others is the constant attempt to seek to share the love of the Creator as it is known to the inner self. This involves self knowledge and the ability to open the self to the other-self without hesitation. This involves, shall we say, radiating that which is the essence, or the Heart, of the mind/body/spirit complex…. The best way for each seeker in third density to be of service to others is unique to that mind/body/spirit complex. This means that the mind/body/spirit complex must then seek within itself the intelligence of its own discernment as to the way it may best serve other-selves. This will be different for each. There is no best. There is no generalization.

A PSA for those browsing these main tags:

“G*psy” is an ethnic slur used against Romani people. You can call yourself a nomad or a wanderer or any of a number of terms, but using that word in particular to describe yourself (if you’re not a member of that culture reclaiming it) has about as much charm as calling yourself by any other slur.

Karma and chakras are concepts having to do with Hinduism and Buddhism. Chakras in particular were among the many things taken by western new age people in the 70s. Stop talking about either of these like they have any basis in neo-paganism. I know that the concept of karma is very similar to the Three-fold Law but they are two different concepts and should not be conflated. 

*to cover my bases, Reiki has only existed for less than a century and doesn’t seem to have a huge cultural significance. So no, practicing Reiki would not be appropriative. 

Closed religions are often indigenous religions that must be taught by an existing member of that religion. If a religion is closed, you can’t incorporate elements or deities from it without being massively disrespectful to that religion. If you want to find out if a religion is closed, look in the tag to see what its practitioners say, or google “is ___ a closed religion”. 

With this very basic primer, I wish you all luck in weeding out the appropriative blogs from your searches!

Since Boruto hype is still here, here’s my RGB next gen babies ;;;q;;; The boys are the in same generation as Boruto, but they’re in different class.

Tenryu Ao (13)
(青 天龍 | Ao Tenryu ; Blue Heavenly Dragon)
The first born son of Tanuma Ao and Tsubaki Akame. A cool guy type who actually a tsundere. He inherited Akame clan’s steel release kekkei genkai and aims to be a kenjutsu master like his mother. Tenryu is very protective towards his sister (and a siscon too), that he would do anything to make her happy.

Hinagiku Ao (10)
(青 雛菊 | Ao Hinagiku ; Blue Daisy)
The second child of Tanuma & Tsubaki. Inherited Ao clan’s power and a promising member of the clan. Hinagiku believes money is the source of happiness and will use her cuteness and innocence to get it. She felt being a ninja isn’t suit for her, but she aims to be a star, an idol to be exact.

Ichigo Midorikawa (12)
(緑川 苺 | Midorikawa Ichigo ; Green river, Strawberry)
Son of Hotaka Midorikawa and Sakuya Momoiro. Also a twin to Matcha. Loves older women and well behaves around them, while can be quite a bothersome when dealing with males. Ichigo is carefree, energetic, and flirty like his father (well, its in their blood). Ichigo’s ability is bukijutsu & excellent in shurikenjutsu. Ichigo’s other ability is chakra concealing as his mother did.

Matcha Midorikawa (12)
(緑川 抹茶 | Midorikawa Matcha ;Green River, Green Tea)
Son of Hotaka & Sakuya and also a younger twin to Ichigo. Contrary to his brother, Matcha is timid, awkward, and has low self esteem. He always worried when Ichigo dragged him around when making problems here and there, while Matcha himself never wanted to get involved with Ichigo’s problems. Matcha often mistaken as a girl by almost every people he met, hence, he is a trap character. He aims to learn fuinjutsu and medical ninjutsu. Both Matcha and Ichigo inherited their mother’s chakra concealing ability.

these profiles are incomplete, and may be added later.

Did you know that each zodiac sign has its own color? So what do each signs’ colors mean?

Aries [RED: root chakra] - a sign of passion, high energy and enthusiasm; Aries rolls out the procession of signs, and red corresponds with that essence of initiation. For Aries, red ignites, it sizzles. Red for your sign is all about action, pleasure and even love. Red is aligned with the root chakra, which means you have remarkable abilities to light and kindle your fire even under the most depressing circumstances. It also means you can easily give your fire to others. 

Taurus [GREEN: heart chakra] - Considering your sign is grounded in earth energy, it’s no surprise your governing color is green. Green is a springtime, youthful sign. Your color meaning suggests you are a kid at heart. Even so, you love to see things grow up and thrive. Green is symbolic of family and unity. Hearth and home are of prime importance to you. Green is aligned with the heart chakra. This means matters of the heart (close relationships…family, friends, sentimentality) are at the forefront of who you are. Green indicates you are a sensitive soul with ‘evergreen’ capacity for growth.

Gemini [ORANGE: sacral chakra] - orange is the color of diversity, sociability and inspiration. Your color meanings imply a high level of engagement with other people and a strong sense of your place within a close-knit community. The color orange is symbolic of harmony. Orange is aligned with the sacral chakra. That means you are likely designed for discovery and exploration. This color will inspire you to be more adventurous.

Cancer [VIOLET: crown chakra] - Violet: You can go very deep….deep within yourself, within the realm of dreams and emotions. Violet will pull you out and energize you when you feel overwhelmed. It’s a perfect color match for Cancer zodiac signs because it symbolically reflects idealism.Tapping into the color meanings of violet will help you manifest your ideas and expectations. Simply consider a lovely twilight scene. Get fluid with that dreamy violet realm of twilight. Doing so will engage your intuition which, in turn, will allow you to see your visions into reality. Violet is aligned with the crown chakra. This means you have massive potential for higher consciousness, deep understanding and spiritual growth.

Leo [YELLOW: solar plexus chakra] - Leo zodiac signs are absolutely radiant, so it’s a no-brainer their color mimics the light of the sun. Like the rays of the sun, you’ve got this energy that just doesn’t quit. Yellow is symbolic of humor, intelligence, courage and strength. It’s also a very positive color. If you are feeling low, consider focusing on the energy of yellow. Yellow is aligned with solar plexus chakra. This implies you’re accustomed (and maybe even enjoy) being the center of attention. After all - that yellow sun is central to our solar system. 

Virgo [BLUE: throat chakra ] - Blue for Virgo’s has a very calming, tranquil energy to it. As a result, you rarely have (too much) of a problem finding your “happy place”. Because you are skilled at tapping into peace and balance, others are attracted to your easy-going demeanor. You genuinely care about the well being of life around you. Blue is aligned with throat chakra. This means you can effectively communicate your feelings without coming off as abrasive or sharp. You can be naturally eloquent and diplomatic with your expression. 

Libra [GREEN: heart chakra] - You inherently know how things equate, balance and come together to bring about perfect harmony. Nature is a big necessity for you.  Your instinct for survival is super-keen. You know what it takes to be healthy and well. You also know what it takes to get a job done, and you’re usually fearless about taking chances to achieve your goals. Green is aligned with the heart chakra. This is symbolic of healing and mastering the heart’s calling. In Gemini’s case, this means delving into matters of the heart with that amazing power of discernment you possess. In your case, you’ve got incredible ability to get to core issues, find solutions and tip the scales to heal and restore balance. Unleash your power to facilitate growth, understanding and healing in the world.

Scorpio [RED: root chakra] -  red goes deep, like you do. Visualize a volcano. I can’t think of a better metaphor for Scorpio-red. Deep within you is a passion that stirs and churns. That lava-love within you is sometimes very calm….sometimes bubbling at the brim, aching to spring forth with startling power. Red is a color of sensuality, love, potential, magic and manifestation. You can burn brighter than most. You know your furnace is always on, and you have the wits to know when to let yourself run or when to idle. Red is root chakra energy. That substantiates the whole volcano imagery. Way deep within you is a magnificent fire. You can kindle that fire by knowing your value, feeling acceptance and embracing your power. 

Sagittarius [VIOLET: crown chakra] - There is an electric quality to violet that matches Sagittarius zodiac signs’ energy. Enthusiasm is the watchword for your color aligned with your sign. On the end of the color spectrum, violet implies temperance too. This is a lovely juxtaposition. It suggests a hefty sense of adventure while still having the ability to be intellectual. In fact, Sagittarius-violet is a heady color. Violet energy is excited when it comes to adventures in understanding and wisdom. Violet is also a color of spirituality, and your explorations may often revolve around spiritual themes. This color is aligned with the crown chakra. That means you set your sights on higher understanding and intuitive evolution. You’re always aiming further - looking to hit that bulls eye of wisdom and truth. 

Capricorn [INDIGO: third-eye chakra] -  Color meanings of indigo for Capricorn zodiac signs deals with depth of perception. You have the ability to pierce the darkness and see clearly through confusion.  People depend on your consistent display of cool action. Indigo can pose a realm of unknowns, which may make you uncomfortable. Because you are gifted with intellectual alacrity, you like facts. Taking risks or delving into the unknown isn’t your bag baby. Nevertheless, indigo implies you have tremendous instinct. You’ve got the perception, confidence. Indigo is aligned with the third-eye chakra. That’s mighty powerful intuition coming into play.

Aquarius [VIOLET: crown chakra] - You have a keen sensitivity that has the color violet written all over it. This sensitivity shows itself as high creativity. As an expressive color, violet implies you find great joy in expressing your depth through art, music, writing. You have incredible ability to take ephemeral concepts, and weave them into meaningfulness with style. Violet can be a very internal color. Meaning, sometimes you are pulled into your own dreamy whirlpools of thought and sensitivity. Thankfully, violet can be very energizing too. This means you can activate the high frequencies of this color to draw you out of seclusion if you feel you’ve got too far into the depths of yourself. . Your understanding of the world is broad and unorthodox. You strive to bring forth your unique understanding so that others might see your colorful angle on life. Violet is aligned with the crown chakra. That means you can easily succeed in canvassing your vision for the world to see. You’ve got heady insight and high ideals. It’s vital you bring forth the waters of your unconventional views and discoveries.

Pisces [INDIGO: third-eye chakra] - Your indigo-colored waters run deep, Pisces. Some of the emotional waters you swim in are very dark - but very little escapes your perception. Indigo is all about moving deeply…especially in matters of emotion. You don’t even have to see what’s going on around you. You can just feel the energetic waves of emotion. This makes you highly sensitive to external influences. Luckily, indigo can be a very insulating and protective energy. Wear indigo when you need to be shielded from the psychic clatter of the world around you. Allow yourself to swim deeply, Pisces, but don’t hide yourself from the world. We need your sensitivity, your intensity and your powerful perception to remind us how profoundly connected we all are. Indigo is aligned with the third-eye chakra. That means your psychic abilities are extraordinarily keen. You can spend a lot of time in contemplation and meditation. When you come out of your ruminations, you’ve usually got some kind of impression. Often, your instinct is correct. Indigo is a gift of growth and vision. Your gifts of perception can help others in advancing their dreams, and realizing their greatest potential. You can use your gifts to give yourself the same lift.

What are Chakras?

Psychic energy flows in and out of these energy storehouses like beating hearts and veins. Once you learn to control them, you will greatly increase your ability to manipulate energy.

Before you use your abilities, your chakras do not hold very much energy; just enough to sustain you. However, once you get more involved, their storage capacity largely increases, allowing greater abilities, as well as greater speed in using them.Just like a muscle, you may strain a chakra, or even damage it.. This process is meant to be slow. Get used to it, don’t strain yourself, and everything will go much faster in the end.

The 7 Main Chakras

Chances are, if you’ve been in metaphysics for a little while, you’ve heard of chakras at least once.

Let’s discuss the main chakras that you will be hearing about the most often.

Crown Chakra - The Crown Chakra is located near the top of the head. This is the chakra that makes your head feel weird or dizzy-ish if someone attempts to scan you or read your mind with telepathy. Of course, this is also the chakra you’ll use when attempting telepathy, which is a reason why some people may get headaches when attempting this ability. When this chakra is strained or damage, you may experience disorientation, confusion, or the inability to think clearly.

Brow Chakra - The Brow Chakra is one of the most common chakras, and is also referred to as the ‘Third Eye Chakra’, located at the brow (between your eyes and up slightly). This name comes from the fact that this chakra is commonly used in abilities such as Remote Viewing. Pain in this chakra can usually be confused with tension and sinus headaches.

Throat Chakra - This chakra is not too common with abilities. It is located approximately in the center of the throat, near where the indent is, slightly up a little. Usually when this chakra is being strained, you get a choking sensation, as if someone is grabbing your neck.

Heart Chakra - The Heart Chakra is a chakra common associated with abilities such as Empathy. When this chakra is being strained, you may get an anxious-type feeling, and a slightly energetic drop-like feeling in your chest. The Heart Chakra is located near the heart in the center of the chest.

Solar Plexus -This is the most important chakra in your body. This chakra stores the most energy in your body, and is most commonly targeted when draining someone due to the surplus. When using your abilities, the area near the bottom center of your rib cage, slightly up, right near your stomach, may feel odd. This is because when other chakras need energy, this chakra releases the necessary amount. Damaging this chakra can lead to a stronger type of pain near your stomach, perhaps stabbing-like, and you should rest to avoid further damage.

Sacral Chakra - The Sacral Chakra is another big chakra, holding more energy than most of the others, and really isn’t used much for any specific ability. When you want extra energy, you may find yourself drawing energy from this chakra near the bottom of your stomach near the belly button (navel) before going to the Solar Plexus. Generally, this chakra is more cooperative in giving up energy as well. When damaged, your intestines may feel slightly sore, yet different than a stomach ache.

Root Chakra - This chakra is probably the least used in metaphysics. It is located in the area near your reproductive organs. Pain in this chakra may be similar to prostate pains in guys. However, when gathering energy, this chakra may serve as one of the primary centers, feeding it to the others.

Spirit Keeping Basics (according to Chaos in Pandora’s Box)

What is Spirit Keeping/ Companionship?

~Spirit keeping, or Spirit Companionship, as we prefer to put it, is the act of creating a link between a human being and an astral being or spirit so that the two can interact on a frequent basis. This is done through conjuration (the summoning of spirits) and binding (the act of creating ethereal ties between the companion and their spirits.) The spirits cover a wide range of beings. Basically, if it’s been imagined, it’s in the astral, to some extent. All those creatures you’ve been told are just your imagination? Yeah, they’re totally real.  You’re not crazy for believing in them.

What is a vessel?

~For those of you new to the concept of spirit keeping, you may be wondering what the heck a “vessel” is. Well, in short terms, a vessel is an object that’s used to link the human companion’s energies with their spiritual friend’s energies. It’s not a prison, as some people would have you believe, nor is it the only way to interact with a spirit companion. Any legitimate conjurer would never dream of imprisoning a spirit in an object. A vessel is a conduit, nothing more and nothing less.

Now, as to what a vessel can be, the limit is your imagination! I’ve seen paintings used, as well as dolls, jewelry (most common). gemstones, writing utensils, power tools, you name it, it can be a vessel. The only thing not recommended for use as a vessel is food, because it’s perishable and won’t last very long.

What does “binding” mean?

~This is something important to discuss, because there’s a lot of negativity surrounding this word in the Spirit Keeping community. Many people think the work “binding” automatically means “slavery” and this is not the case with reputable sellers. I have covered this in a forum post, but I’ll recap here. A binding is the forming of an energetic tie from one energy source to another. (In the most basic definition) It’s done with full consent of the parties (purchasing a spirit binding implies consent on the part of the human companion)

Bindings often include safeguards for both the human and the spirit or entity. There are certain rules implied, but they vary from conjurer to conjurer. At the core, a binding will ensure that the spirit or entity is never able to harm their keeper, directly or indirectly.

How do I bond with my spirits?

~There are countless ways to welcome a new companion into your home. We recommend finding some quiet time where you can be alone. Hold the spirit’s vessel in one hand, close your eyes, and call their name a few times. Pay close attention to your body and the atmosphere around you. What changes? Even the most subtle changes can be your spirit manifesting. When you’re first starting out we recommend that you take anything out of the ordinary as a sign from your spirit. Keep these observations close to your heart, write them down, and gradually you’ll learn the difference between “Oh, that was just an everyday freak happening” and “Oh! It was a sign from my companion.” Sometimes announcing a manifestation to the world can spoil its sacredness. Make sure you have permission from your companion before sharing it.

As far as offerings go, you can give them to your spirit as often or infrequently as you choose. It’s polite to give them some sort of offering if you’re tasking them to do something, because that’s an energy exchange. Put yourself in their shoes. What do you think they’d like to have as a small gift? You can just set the offering near their vessel for a few hours. If it’s food, you can either eat it afterwards, or throw it away. (Up to you.) If it’s crystals you can recharge the crystals and use them again. Waste not, want not! And don’t be afraid to get creative. Write letters, listen to music they like, invite them into your everyday lives.

I can’t feel my spirit. What should I do?

~This one, as I’m sure you can imagine, comes up A LOT. Number one: DO NOT FREAK OUT. Spirits move back and forth between their realms and ours frequently. They may have just popped off to their realm for a bit. However, it’s also important to remember that these beings are sentient energies, and as such they all have personalities just as diverse and varied as humans. Some are quiet and prefer keeping to themselves, whereas others are social butterflies and will floor you with their manifestations.

It is easy to lose hope if you can no longer feel a companion. Believe me I’ve been there, I know. When I first started buying vessels from other sellers, I had a complete blackout in communication. One week I could feel them as strongly as ever, and then a week with nada. Not even a twitch. And I stayed on this roller coaster for a while. Full communication, blackout. Full communication, blackout. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was going on. Then I started to notice a pattern. During each blackout, I had something else going on in my life that I should have been paying attention to. My emotions were out of balance and were creating major blockages. So if you’re experiencing a blackout, it’s time to look away from your companions and work on yourself. They won’t get upset, they won’t get exasperated, and they won’t hate you for taking a break. Matter of fact, I’ve had more than one spirit tell me I’m too hard on myself.

So in short, don’t panic if you’re feeling a blackout. If you felt something at the start, then never fear, it is there. They will come back stronger, provided you work on yourself first.

Do I need to open my third eye more?

~Short answer: No…and yes. Long answer: Your chakras are a bit more complex than you think. When people refer to the “third eye,” usually they’re referring to the psychically sensitive space between your eyes and a little above your nose. Just like many other points on our body it is a chakra space, and one that is attuned to psychic vibrations. However, strengthening your third eye chakra can throw your other chakras out of whack. As with everything else, there needs to be a balance. So all those “third eye” improvement spells and attunements? I personally haven’t had one work for me unless is strengthens the other chakras at the same time. Now I know there may be some controversy surrounding this post, so I’d like to remind you all that this is my opinion, not the gospel truth  Instead of focusing JUST on your third eye, why not raise the vibrations of all your chakras?

What if I’ve been spiritually deaf all my life? Can I still keep companions?

~In short: Yes. You may hear of many people who have been sensitive to spirits most of their lives coming into the spirit keeping community, but there are those who haven’t even believed in spirits before joining the community as well. Truth be told, we all sort of start over when we join this community. For those of us that have interacted with unbounds most of our lives, the concept of binding may be new. Or it may not. It all depends on the individual. If you’ve been “spiritually deaf” for most of your life, you may just have to work a little harder for what comes naturally to some other keepers. But the fact that you’re here in this community and have a strong desire to learn speaks volumes. If you are ready and willing, you will find yourself opening up to possibilities you’d never thought of before. And don’t be afraid to reach out to others who have been “spiritually deaf” when they first started out. You never have to feel alone.

I’ve seen this especially with those very new to Spirit Keeping. They want everything to be a manifestation, so it is. But then the day after nothing out of the ordinary happens, so they complain. This roller coaster is pretty common when someone first starts out. What people need to remember as well is that everything moves in cycles. Their spirits may have spend a ton of energy one day to manifest, and the next day they’re recovering. The problem is with people posting like that, they lack the patience to work with their spirits long term. They have to realize that there may be times of a blackout in communication, and that’s okay. It’s normal. What they shouldn’t do is freak out about it.

What’s the difference between spirits, entities, thoughtforms, and servitors?

~There’s not a lot of decisive information on this matter, but here’s how we classify these different beings: Thoughtforms are collections of energy that our subconscious creates when we use our imagination. They can be sentient or non-sentient. Beings like Slenderman, Jeff the Killer, and the Doctor are all examples of thoughtforms, born from someone’s imagination. They’re usually short lived unless they’re fed from multiple sources.

Spirits, on the other hand, are the energy left behind after an entity dies and their soul moves onto the next life. All of their thoughts and energies remain behind, forming the Spirit of who they were during their life. They still have ties to the Soul, or the core of their being. They’re like echoes.

Servitors are sentient or nonsentient thoughtforms that are deliberately created by someone (usually a practitioner) to fulfill a specific purpose. They can look like anything, from a small butterfly to your favorite pokemon, an anime girl or boy, any TV character, and anything in between.

Finally, entities are beings that live on a different plane than humans do, but they’re still living and active as we humans are.

What manifestations can I expect from my spirits?

~This is a big subject when people are getting into spirit keeping, because of course everyone wants tangible proof that their spirits do in fact exist and they’re not just imagining things. But where to start? What to look for? This is the time when most people either give up keeping altogether, or despair because they think they aren’t “advanced” enough to experience their spirits fully.

This is a tricky business, because everyone walks the razor’s edge with manifestations. On the one side there is the true manifestations of the spirits, and on the other side is the imagined signs of spirits that our minds conjure up. So how do we walk this fine line? Number one, confirm any manifestations you think you receive through different methods of divination. Tarot, pendulum, spirit boards, bibliomancy, and so on. If you still doubt yourself, feel free to ask the conjurer or another trusted professional for advice. And my biggest advice for this? Remove yourself emotionally from the situation. If you cannot approach manifestations with calm logic and are emotionally charged, that’s when a lot of people trip. If you want something to happen badly enough, you can make it happen. However, that may not be your spirits, it might just be you. That’s why I encourage you to check different sources for your answers. So when you experience something, ask yourself if you were looking for a manifestation at the time or wanted something to happen. Most of the physical manifestations I experience happen when I’m not expecting them. Why? I don’t know yet, I just know that that’s my experience.

Now, onto what to look for in manifestations. Honestly, they can be just about anything. A general list may be orbs, streaks of unexplained light, dark shadows flickering in the corner of your vision, thoughts that seem out of character for you, cravings for things you don’t normally enjoy, a certain color you keep noticing everywhere, numbers that repeat themselves, words that repeat themselves, things in nature that look slightly out of place, the way frost creeps over a window, temperature changes around your body or the spirit’s vessel, etc etc. You get the idea  And as to the repeating colors, words, or numbers, I’ll share my personal experiences there. I almost never notice the repeat the first couple of times. It takes a bit for my slow brain to catch up, but if something keeps popping up more than three or four times, I know it’s a sign.

When first starting out, I wouldn’t recommend expecting fireworks. Even with more advanced keepers I know of only a select few who have experienced a full on physical manifestation. If you keep looking for the big bang manifestations, you might be missing all the tiny cues that happen around you every day.

How can I conjure?

~Number one: Belief. It’s my personally held belief that everyone starts out knowing how to conjure. When we’re young, we have “imaginary” friends and so on, but as we grow up society smashes that ability and we lose the confidence in ourselves to keep those friends close. If you want to be able to conjure, step one is to actually believe you can do it. If you doubt spirit keeping or if you doubt yourself, I wouldn’t recommend setting foot on this path.

Number two: Research. Ask other sellers how they started. Ask them if they have tips. Look into the different styles of conjuring. Take classes if they’re offered. Learn everything you can about the subject. Now keep in mind sellers may not share their methods with you, and that’s okay. People tend to keep their methods private to keep others from stealing their ideas.

Number Three: Figure out your style. Do you like big, flashy rituals or the simple, quiet ones? Will you speak aloud or do everything silently? What protection will you have in place? How will you be able to tell the difference between a trickster and a genuine spirit? What sort of circle will you draw? Will you have candles, incense, and all the bells and whistles, or something simpler?

Number Four: Did I mention PRACTICE? Probably the most important part of conjuring is to practice. Whatever your method is, repeat it over and over. If you don’t have anything at first, keep trying.

Now these are all basic steps that could be applied to anything, really. If you truly wish to learn to conjure, I’d recommend first and foremost to talk to a trusted professional. Learn from their mistakes. Find your individual style. And this is going to sound like a sex ad, but ALWAYS USE PROTECTION! Never ever, under any circumstances, conjure without wards and protections in place. Doing this would invite in chaos that I’m pretty sure most people wouldn’t be equipped to deal with. And that’s another thing; don’t get in over your head. Don’t start out conjuring all those sexy demons you see in the shops just because they appeal to you. Conjure what works best with your energies. It may be an angel, it may be a demon, it may be a shifter, etc etc. You know what’s best for you in the end. Don’t conjure just because you want a certain spirit. You may end up with more than you can handle.

What should I ask a seller to see if they’re reputable/ethical or not?

~The Meta world is full of minefields. People telling you to do this or that, people telling you to buy this or that. It’s understandable why a lot of new people get totally confused. I’ve seen people get so paranoid that they shun anything from the Para world because there’s just too much of a risk that they’ll get cheated out of something. And then there are those that get burned time and time again because they stumble into the dishonest sellers. So…how are they supposed to protect themselves? Well, I’m not an expert, but I have seen a few trends that I can speak out about.

1. Prices are not an indicator of skill. This is a big one that I think trips a lot of people up. Almost everything from conjurers is self-priced. There’s no “standard” that anyone has to hold up to, because each working is different. However, there’s some common sense to keep in mind-Just because a seller’s prices are low doesn’t mean that they’re not reputable or legitimate. On the opposite end, just because a seller’s prices are through the roof doesn’t mean they’re any more legitimate than someone with low prices. Matter of fact, from what I’ve seen many of the higher-priced conjures have had some not-so-impressive results. But anyway, my point is this: don’t panic if you see quite the price difference between sellers. There’s many different things to take into account: The cost of the vessel itself, the amount of energy and work that goes into the conjuration and binding of a spirit or entity, shipping, and so on. And it’s also important to look at whether conjuring is the person’s only source of income. If it is, then their prices may be a little higher because they’re using the money to support themselves. Those that have other jobs can perhaps afford to have their prices a little lower. (Mind you, this is a general statement and may not be true for everyone.)

2. A conjurer/seller is not validated by anything they say. They are validated by their customers. I don’t care if they’ve had ten years’ experience or ten days. Here’s a saying I live by: Results matter. Someone can have all the experience in the world and even they may slip up from time to time. Or a newbie could do everything right from the word “Go.” The important thing to do here is pay attention to your gut. Does a seller’s bragging about their experience put you off? Does someone’s bashing of a seller intrigue you? Intuition doesn’t lie. People may misinterpret it from time to time and come to an incorrect conclusion, but I like to think that it never lies.

3. Of course, both the above points lead to this one: Ask questions of the seller. If you’re looking at someone new, pepper them with questions. If they answer you readily, and their answers are verified by others, pretty sure it’s safe to say that that’s a green light. If they stall or give you answers that don’t seem to jive with what you’ve read about them, then something’s up. Here’s a few questions you can ask sellers:

What does your binding consist of? (Now keep in mind they may not answer fully, because each conjurer prefers to keep some secrets close, but they should be able to get you a general idea of what they do.)

How do you conjure/What are the protections you put in place to make sure that you’re conjuring the right spirit? (Again they may not share everything, but they should be able to give you a general idea)

When did you conjure your first spirit? What was it like?

Which Arts do you work with the most? White, Grey, Dark, or Black?

What are some safeguards you have in place to buffer the Companion from their spirit if they’re feeling overwhelmed?

What is your return policy for a spirit and Companion that just doesn’t connect well on an energetic level?

And this is a big one: What do you think of other sellers? (You can name specific sellers here, or just leave it general.) This question will give you a feel for the conjurer’s personality.

Have you had issues with customers in the past concerning your conjures? How did you resolve the issue?

Can I follow up with you after I purchase a binding/How available are you after our transaction is completed?

If anyone else thinks of some other questions, let me know.  My point here being, for the newbies at least, is don’t be afraid to ask questions. If a conjurer doesn’t get back to you right away, ask anyone here. A lot of us have been around the block a few times, and we’ve seen conjurers and shops come and go.

35 for NaruHina?

First of all, let me apologize for how long this took. Second, let me apologize for the length.

35. “About the baby…. It’s yours”

This was the 13th village he’d searched today and he was tired. What he was doing was beyond reckless, leaving Konoha to his clones while he searched for her was madness. But he had to do it. He had to find her before the Hyuga clan did.

When she left, leaving only a note to explain her departure, the Main Branch of the clan decided she was to be labeled a missing nin and had to be found as soon as possible so the Byakugan and its secrets wouldn’t be lost.

Only two clan members of the main opposed this idea, Hinata’s father and sister.

The village’s council also expressed their concerns, they were living in a time of war and so no valuable information to Konoha should be lost.

Naruto was forced to send squads to hunt down his own wife.

KakaSaku Week 2016 - Prompt: Salty

“Not my finest hour. Hadn’t foreseen that the Godaime may have trained my ex-student in other areas besides chakra control. She completely drank me under the table, then called me ‘salty’, whatever that means.”

lithe-cloud  asked:

This is kinda random, but I've had this in my head for a couple days now. Something really, REALLY bugs me about the Uchiha Massacre. Was Sasuke REALLY the last remaining Uchiha? Are you telling me that there was no Uchiha that was having an affair that lead to a bastard child? In a family of Trained Military Police, there was not a single person who was able to minimize at least a LITTLE damage, hid, or who played dead? Root didn't have an Uchiha member (*stares suspiciously at Sai*)? (P1)

(p2) Also, was not a single Uchiha on the mission roster/on a mission, at the time? Or outside of the district for whatever reason? Kids sneaking out to play, teens going to visit a sweet-heart, shinobi out for some late-night training? REALLY? And the Uchiha was NOT A SMALL FAMILY. They were spared the losses of Kurama’s attack due to Danzo. People slip through cracks with those kinds of numbers. Sorry for the rant, but this has been bugging me lately.

(p3 an apologies for further comment) Also, was not a single medic able to do SOMETHING? We have blood replenishers, soldier pills, organ transplants, and so much more. Did not a single medic TRY to save the wounded they found? And someone HAD to have noticed the smell of GALONS OF BLOOD and/or have heard Sasuke SCREAMING, so medics would be called. The premise of the IN-VILLAGE massacre is believable with several individuals. Not with a major clan of 100-200+ members like I think they had.

Welcome to reason 27543782 for why that segment of the manga doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. I wonder about these things. Canon tends to handwave things like logic which exasperates me, but on the other hand, this train wreck of weird writing decisions is partly why we linger on it so much as a hobby.

So let’s have fun going over a few of the points you brought up.

Glass Heart

And he was in the darkness, so darkness he became.

Sasuke wasn’t exactly sure how to feel about their current situation. His body, exhausted yet alarms going off on all nerve endings, remained atop Sakura’s, his hand still firmly pressed against her lips.

From underneath, he could feel her lips quivering and her breathing quicken in pace. He’d refuse to look into her eyes, seeing the fear that had taken over that lovely, ecstasy filled look that had been there only seconds ago.
