Cons of watching an anime after it ends:
-dead fandom
-no weekly excitement for the new episode
-everything blends together and you don’t remember which episode specific things happened in
-no suspense bc you can immediately watch the next episode
-you can’t speculate on other people’s theories bc they’ve already been proven/disproven

A Way to Astral Project

Astral projection is a spiritual, almost trance-like, state of meditation where you guide your astral body (sort of in between your physical body and your spiritual self) lifts out of your physical body. It allows you to travel through space and time, see spirits, meet up with other projectors, and even enter into people’s dreams to contact them. 

It can also be dangerous if you don’t ask your guide to help protect you, or you don’t shield yourself. Here is a post I’ve made on shielding. 

Below is one possible and usually effective way to projecting. It takes practice, like all meditation, so just keep trying if it doesn’t work! Or intuitively modify the method.

  1. Choose the time best for you: Usually the morning or after a nap is the most effective, because you can wake up your mind, but your body has less sensation and is therefore easier to leave. This is something that will be different for everyone, so figure out what works for you!
  2. Lie down in a quiet space: Make sure no one with interrupt you (such interruption will ground you right back to the physical plane). Darken the room so your eyes aren’t distracted with bright lights. Be relaxed and comfortable, trying to minimize physical sensation. Also, have a blanket over yourself so you don’t get cold. Even on a warm day this might be needed.
  3. Shield yourself: The link is above in the description on how to. I would ward your astral body and physical body with a white light, perhaps using the blanket and imagining that it is protecting your body with light. Worst case scenario would be for a negative spirit to use your body when you leave it to project. Also ask your guide(s), even if you don’t know their names, to protect you with pure intentions and from all negativity. 
  4. Relax your body: Start by focusing on your breathing, then move through your muscle groups and imagine each place of tension disappearing. Sometime a healing light, and imagining that, will help. You can work up or down on  your body. Just relax as best you know how. Breathe away any thoughts too. Notice them, then just let them go with an exhale. A few minutes of this will clear your mind. But, it is natural for some thoughts to stay, and that’s okay! It won’t stop you from projecting, it just means that you’re human.
  5. Let your mind wander and focus on a single points in your body: A small point, like your hand, heart, a toe, etc. Focus on this one point and let the rest of your body naturally fall into a sleep like state. 
  6. Start to visualize your body and feel it’s presence: It’s possible to see or imagine yourself looking different than your physical self at this point. Just accept what you feel and look like.
  7. Flex your body parts mentally: This means that you don’t move any part of your body, but you image it moving until you can feel it vividly. This is your astral body moving. Slowly “move” more parts of your body.
  8. Enter your resonation/vibrational state: All spirits, atoms, particles, energies, etc vibrate with certain frequencies. Start to pay attention to your astral self and you’ll probably, by this point, be feeling a subtle vibration. Let it build until it’s incredibly powerful. If you don’t feel the vibration yet, then continue the above step until you do. Audio and visual hallucinations are common here, like extremely loud sounds or patterns that your eyes are seeing. These aren’t harmful in any way. The most difficult part of the vibration is combating fear. It is overwhelming, especially the first time, because you are transcending the physical plane. Just relax into it and let it flow over you. It will not harm you.
  9. Leave your body: Use your mind to lift out of your body, using the vibration to increase the ability to do so. Anyone can do this, but you need to trust yourself. Don’t allow yourself to doubt your ability, just have faith even for a few moments that you can leave your body, visualize it, then look back at your physical body once you are out of it. You can practice by just lifting a leg or arm out of your body first. Don’t expect a full projection on your first try! Just practice what it feels like until you understand your own astral self and how to have it leave your body, even if just in parts. 
  10. Explore: Be careful and take a guide with you. You can go anywhere now, besides some “restricted sections” (like “Heaven,” other people’s Akashic records, the Tree of Life, etc). If you ever feel threatened then just follow a silver cord back to your body. It should be connected to you around stomach. It is always there as soon as you focus on it. You can access your Akashic records, meet up with spirits or other projectors, go back in time (like literally see historical or future events), or interact in a plane you design for yourself, like a sanctum or astral altar. 
  11. Return to your body: Just imagine yourself going back and you will. You can also let the silver cord pull you or your guides guide you back into your body. If you see your physical self, then just align yourself and fall back into your body. Then slowly wiggle toes and fingers until sensation comes back. Don’t get up until you feel fully present, because you could be dizzy or lightheaded.

ok so you know how every time shiro mentions not making it, and keith just panics? closes up and immediately cuts him off? the thought of losing shiro is clearly upsetting, but i dont think shiro realizes just how much this affects keith until bom 

becuase the last time shiro talks about it is here 

right before they reach the base of marmora. 

which means, after seeing keith’s hallucination of all this 

he never mentions leaving him again. 

and while you can say that shiro and keith both see each other at their lowest points, there’s definitely something that feels more vulnerale about shiro peering into keith’s mind. and not only that, but the fact that he directly sees how keith views him. its this intrusion on a deeply personal, intimate moment. and honestly, i think keith seeing something similar from shiro’s perspective would be the only thing to put them on equal footing 

we already know the black lion can use the astral plane to project zarkon’s memories. so i think, once keith takes over, it will probably share some of shiro’s. of course, part of why bom is so painful is because shiro is privy to these moments against keith’s will. this isnt something hes sharing voluntarily. so as a counter to that, i would hope their link with black lion would allow shiro to reach out to him and share memories in a mutually agreed upon way

18. THE MASTER SWORD

Your master will come for you. Until then, you shall rest safely here. Although the Slumber of Restoration will most certainly deprive him of his memories, please trust me when I say that I know he will arrive before you yet again.
- If I may be so bold… what is it that are planning to do next, Princess?
- The Master Sword. I heard it speak to me. It seems that my role is unfinished. There is still something I must do.
- I sense there is great strength in your dedication.
- Great Deku Tree, I ask of you, when he returns, can you please relay this message… Tell him I-
- Now, then… Words intended for him would sound much better in the tones of your voice, don’t you think?
- Yes.

These People Were Working So Hard To Create Something. And When You See It From Above It’s Just Incredible.

All of our most impressive achievements in human history - the pyramids of Giza, the lighthouse of Alexandria, and the hanging gardens of Babylon - are the result of tireless effort and collaboration.

This gorgeous, monumental effort was no different.

It took 60 volunteers from around the world along with 500 residents to create.

They painstakingly etched the bodies of 9,000 fallen soldiers from D-Day into the sand.

The effort was led by the artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss to commemorate those who sacrificed dearly on June 6, 1944.

The work is titled The Fallen 9000.

Everyone threw themselves into the effort, even though they knew with the tide it couldn’t last forever.

Here those who served in the D-Day landings will be remembered.

It includes all those civilians, Germans, and allied forces who died during the D-Day beach landings.

The original team was just a few volunteers.

But as word spread of what they were trying to accomplish nearly 500 residents pitched in too, and built this beautiful memorial together.

D-Day was one of the most significant days in our world and forever changed the course of history. These men were all a part of it, and this memorial stands as a stark reminder of how costly war can be. Share this important memory with your friends by clicking below.

 

Spirit work observations

It’s been roughly 7 months now that I’ve started accepting my abilities and learn how to use them, especially with spirit work because that’s where I feel most comfortable. I thought I’d share some impressions.

  • It works best to send feelings/images to entities to be understood
  • They and us don’t use the same language, or even communication systems (including body language… if they have a body)
  • Names very rarely “stick” to your memory because of the two observations above, it’s like hearing symbols and it’s so foreign that your brain directly refuses to understand it
  • There are spirits everywhere, and ghosts are more common than you’d think. It’s just that either they’re so weak you have to pay very close attention to feel them, or they ignore you, or they just… exist in one place and you do too
  • Evil spirits are like herpes
  • The kind of spirits that has the closest way of thinking to our own are probably the gods (add “” if you’re a secular witch, you can still meet them even if you don’t believe in them as I discovered), which makes sense because mythos describe them as having “human flaws”
  • Be polite at all costs until you’re attacked. Then wreck havoc.
  • Creating basic thoughtforms is easy, but if you don’t give them orders they will do shit. If you give them energy regularly they develop a more and more complex intellect
  • Places have feelings
  • Rocks too (my obsidian is sassy)
  • Domestic animals partially communicate through telepathy and wild animals have sort of basic energy shields blocking it
  • Plants are so fucking chill and nice, don’t hurt them (most of the time they are happy, such smol precious happy simple souls)
  • I think my soulmate might be dead because I can only find their empty bedroom through astral travel ( :’( )
  • I am beginning to experiment with past lives memories, I have more of them than I thought (though not many human ones, which would explain how terrible I am at human communication)

That’s all I can remember right now, if you have questions my askbox is open
