star anise tea

anonymous asked:

Wait what do the UT and UL boys smell like?



Mainly Febreeze, musk from probably needing to shower, ketchup and old deodorant.


Marinara sauce, Bone cologne and for some reason, the crisp, fresh smell of a new building. 


One of those very sweet scents from Victoria Secret, freshly laundered clothes and lotion.


Spice based scents like star anise, warm sheets and tea.

Magical workings to induce prophetic dreams

Charm Bag containing:

  • Clear quartz
  • Any purple crystals you have (examples: purple fluorite, sugilite, amethyst, etc.)

  • Rosemary

  • Poppy seeds

  • St. John’s Wort

  • Marigold

I recommend you spend time with each of these, either separately or altogether, and really focus your intention on bringing out all of the psychically boosting energies residing in them. In my practice, I am a firm believer that just tossing things together has been less likely to succeed for me, while channeling energy into them with purpose has made me more likely to succeed. Use your best judgment. Charge up your charm bag as a whole really well, too, once it’s all together, before you seal it for an added bonus! 

Before bedtime, when you are getting all cozied up for the night:

Make yourself a bath that contains some purple stones (double check to make sure you don’t have any water soluble or toxic stones, first) and any other herbal correspondences you have that aren’t staining to the skin. Stir it in a clockwise motion, invoking psychic energies in order to induce prophetic dreams.  Soak in it, clearly imagining what you are intending to do.

Alternatively, you could make yourself some star anise tea, or cinnamon tea with a teeny bit of anise extract, and stir it clockwise (the same way I spoke on with the bath). Drink it up, and prepare yourself for bed.

Once you’re ready to hit the pillow, stick your charm bag inside of it and enjoy your astral travels :D

I recommend you keep a journal by your bed to record anything you dream of that night, for easy remembering in the morning, as well as quick reference for interpretive use. It is hard to want to write something when you are half asleep or wanting to go back to sleep, but it is also super easy to forget things we dream of when we don’t record them. I also recommend to take extra protective measures, just to ensure nothing muddies your results. Sweet dreams~ 


Marrakech, Morocco: part three.

la place Jemaa el-Fnaa. la nuit.

Jemaa el-Fnaa is the main square in Marrakech that is as animated at night as it is in the day. It’s packed with dried fruit and nut and fresh orange juice booths. You can see the steam rising off the food vendors stalls serving up lamb and chicken kabobs, tajines and lentils, who beckon you (almost to the point of harassment) to come to their stall. Men pushing carts of different almond pastries circle the square. Belly dancers, musicians and story tellers are scattered about.

We made a nightly stop at this man’s cart, serving up the most delicious and flavorful ginger+cinnamon+nutmeg+cardamon+star anise tea I have ever tasted. It was served with a really dense and soft Moroccan spice cake, which he would spoon off the large mound into little plates for us. This might be one of the things I’m going to miss the most. Good thing I bought a big bag of their spice mix to take back to Paris with me!
