Sims 4 - La Tanière

You can’t imagine how many time I spend putting ivy on the stone walls. X)

But I’m pretty happy with the result. The exterior shape is simple, but I really like how it look with the vegetation. And I used a lot of Cats and Dogs items inside, so many new things !

Hello! I was wondering if you knew much about angels and avian?

Hi, anon! Thanks for the message!

Your question is rather hard to answer, because “angels” is such a broad term. There are so many subspecies and crosses and variations that we could not possibly give you even the most basic rundown of all of them. We can, however, give you some resources and information on a few categories of Angels.

Please note: All the information provided is UPG - either our own UPG or that of the original writer of posts linked. This information may conflict with your own beliefs and experiences, because it may depend on the individual spirit or subspecies.

We hope you find at least one thing on this list useful - we tried to cover as broad of a range as possible! We don’t necessarily agree with all the views found in any of the posts linked, but we think it is important to consider many other viewpoints when researching.


AN INTRODUCTION TO ANGELS

A simple general definition of Angels, according to Wikepedia:

“An angel is generally a supernatural being found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth.[1][2] Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God’s tasks.[3] Within Abrahamic religions, angels are often organized into hierarchies, although such rankings may vary between sects in each religion, and are given specific names or titles, such as Gabriel or “Destroying angel”. The term “angel” has also been expanded to various notions of spirits or figures found in other religious traditions. The theological study of angels is known as “angelology”.”

Below, we tried to break Angels down into the three most commonly discussed categories within the community.


ABRAHAMIC ANGELS

Many will generalize Abrahamic Angels as “beings made of love and light”, but…this is rarely the case. Abrahamic Angels are warriors, messengers, and/or beings of very high command, and they carry themselves as such - it is also very apparent in the very construction of their energy. They are important, and they typically are very aware of this.

Abrahamic Angels are recognized within the Bible as having a specific Hierarchy, along with specific and more “important” Angels being recognized by name.

FALLEN ANGELS

Typically referred to simply as “Fallen”, they are Angels who have been “cast from grace” after rebelling against God or committing a sin for a variety of reasons. The Fallen are typically Abrahamic Angels who have chosen not to follow Divine authority and either left God or were cast down to Earth.

While the Fallen are generalized as all being followers of Lucifer/Satan, this is not always the case. Many will follow Lucifer, but many also choose not to associate with him. This is dependent on the individual.

Fallen are a varied bunch. Their energy differs a lot depending on what energy source they connected to after they fell. They are more flexible than Abrahamic Angels and are typically (but not always) solitary.

More Reading:


NON-ABRAHAMIC ANGELS

While the Angels of Christian, Catholic, and other Abrahamic faiths are typically the ones people first picture when they hear the word “angel”, the Abrahamic Angels are far from the only species. Angels have existed in the majority of religions across time.

The individual Angels themselves may identify themselves as being from a certain culture/religion/practice, or they may choose to not identify or associate with anything. This category of Angels is enormous and has many subsects. Their energy and alignments cannot be generalized in any way.

BONUS: DARK ANGELS
This section is a little treat! We are currently studying several individuals of this subspecies after one stepped forward for a Custom Conjure some time ago. We will be writing a bestiary entry soon with the information we’ve gathered, but here’s a “sneak peek” that Lethe wanted to provide!

Dark angels are a subspecies of angels. They are completely separate from Abrahamic angels and also completely separate from demonics/hell inhabitants. They live in a different area of the astral, and their interactions with demonic entities are limited to personal business. Dark Angels have a very different culture (and although they share a few similarities, such as its highly militarized society- they also differ greatly in how social order is established. Dark Angels have an established meritocracy-styled leadership and social structure, whereas demonic cultures tend to be very rigid in hierarchy and tend to rely more on bloodlines/hereditary arrangements for their hierarchy). Their energy signature is unmistakably Angelic, although admittedly extremely dark.

A long time ago, Dark Angels had close interactions and intermingled with some Abrahamic Angels. This led to the militarized aspects of their culture, language similarities, and similarities in things such as naming conventions. However, Dark Angels don’t follow an organized religion. They do place a high value on learning about their history. They do not worship or associate with any deities, etc.

Dark Angels have their own language and writing system, which is loosely linked to Abrahamic Angelic language. While they might not be able to communicate fluently with Abrahamic Angels, they would likely be able to pick-up words, etc. when hearing them speak.

Due to the way their community is structured, Dark Angels are very caring about their society/community. While they might be seen as cold towards outsiders, they are deeply compassionate towards their own people. Dark Angel children are raised communally rather than in families. This leads to a close kinship amongst everyone (a feeling of all members of the community being “part of the family”).


This is just a brief overview of a few types of Angels that we thought would be helpful for you to start learning about them. This is NOT intended to be a comprehensive list. There are MANY divisions within each species, subspecies, and even within single communities. Research, research, research - and see if you can interact with either an individual from the species OR someone who works with an Angel!


For the second half of your question, after some discussion, neither of us were able to determine what you’re referring to when you say “avians”. Do you mean spirits who appear similar to Angels, but are similar only in appearance (such as winged humans, if we go by the “typical” Angel appearance)? Do you mean bird spirits? We would love a follow-up question!

Hope you found this helpful! If any of our followers work with Angels and have some experience and information to share, we would love your input!

The funniest thing about @anarchyinblack‘s recent series of arguments is that it proves the following:

  • conservatives will present leftist cities deciding the election as to why the US needs the electoral college, but are unable to explain why a bunch of barely educated, anti-abortion, Protestant farmers deciding an election is preferable,
  • conservatives don’t understand what weighting and proportioning is,

but most importantly:

  • conservatives, who pretend to be the masters of logic over feelings, are as emotionally vulnerable as your average liberal seeing how many of them jumped into the conversation, undoubtedly offended, after American farmers were called “freeloaders.” They also don’t understand the free market seeing they think they can make the US starve if they stop producing uh corn.

Conservatives adhering to the most hated institution in the US and the only thing that will ever allow them to get a president elected shows exactly where the conservatism is going to end lmao

Looking for a friend (maybe more?)

Hi there! My name’s Joseph. I’m 18 and I’m from the United States. Specifically the state that’s known for potatoes, so bonus points if you know which one I’m referring to. I hope you find US geography apeeling. Which leads me into the first of my many interests.

I love humor. All kinds, and I’m up for any of it, and I clearly make really bad puns. If you laughed, smiled, or cringed at the pun, we ought to talk. If you hate them, then just beet it. You’d be subjected to this so much, it would replace money as the root of all your problems. I do this often, and can pun with some of the best of them. 

For those of you still reading on, congratulations! Here’s a legitimate list of things I’m interested in, and hopefully, you share some of them. 

Books: I love reading. A lot. An unhealthy amount really, but reading is one my favorite things to do. Sci-fi and fantasy hold special places in my heart, but all other genres are great too. I just barely bought Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson, and am loving every single page (Considering there’s over 1000, that’s a great thing). And if you like Shakespeare, we should talk. There’s few of us left, and  we must stick together.

Video games: I play tons of games all the time. RPGs, strategy, RTS, any console/PC, I’m open to it all. I’m not currently playing anything at the moment, and would love to swap ideas/play online. 

Politics: Yes this feels oddly out of place with the puns and the games and books, but I love studying legal processes, legislative actions, and watching countries act. I would love to discuss the current political climate with someone, and in our time especially, it’s something that we ought to be having civil discourse on. 

Debate: I love debate a ton. I’m a part of the National Speech and Debate Association, have done all the styles, most of the speech events, and just love debate. 

Music: I love 80’s, soft rock, classical, orchestrated music, and various assorted songs from modern day that I don’t know how to categorize. Basically, if it’s on the radio, I probably like it. 

Sports: Kind of. I like watching sports like soccer and basketball, but I love fencing and belegarth. A medieval combat thing that uses foam swords. It’s a ton of fun, and if you’ve never heard of it, look it up. If nothing else, youtube videos of them are cool to watch.

Learning: I love school, but more importantly, i love learning about things that matter. Learning about people, and how to be a better person. I’d love to learn from you, because I know all of you have something to teach me. 

Now that you’ve made it through that blurb of text, here’s what I’m looking for. I’m looking for someone who is open to having discussions on anything. I love talking to people, and I want to hear your viewpoint. A relationship with any one of you lovely ladies would be absolutely wonderful. But honestly, with all of my puns and humor, you’d probably find it more punishment than amusing. 

Finally, I really just want a friend I can talk to. Life gets lonely at times, and there are frankly too many days when it’s just me against the world. I’d love to have someone, anyone to talk to to help out when times get rough. And I am more than willing to do the same for you. If we talk, you can know that I will always be there for you. 

Oh, one more thing before I give you my email, I also speak Portuguese, and pretend to speak Spanish because of high school. If that applies to you, great! If not, here’s my email.

phesoj13 @ gmail.com (No space, just trying to avoid spam)

I can’t wait to meet all of you!

Keeping them anonymous so they don’t get sent hate or harassed but, this really kind Klance shipper messaged me tonight asking me if I would like a Plance url they had, because they wanted someone who really loved and shipped Plance to have it. Not only that, they continued to say just some of the kindest and nicest words I’ve seen anyone in this fandom say…through all the discourse and negative things I’ve seen being in the Voltron fandom…this one individual gave me hope.


I may say a lot of negative stuff about Klance on a whole cause of the antis and the majority of them that ship it, who have harassed me and many other Shaladin/Piladin shippers…even knowing there are def good Klance shippers, but not many like this kind, young person here.


If us, as a fandom, can learn more to be more kind and accepting of each other like this person here…things would be so much better. I’m gonna try to be better. Other fandoms wouldn’t see us as a negative and toxic fandom…we can still change.

anonymous asked:

if possible, would you be able to tag your femshep critical posts as something? because they really upset me a lot

I use the tag when it’s actually critical.

Here it’s about asking others to be more inclusive with the words they use so general Shepard posts can resonate with everyone, including trans and non-binary players who are a big part of our community but are often ignored. 
It’s not a criticism of FShep. I would never be critical of her because I love her with all my heart. 

And I’ve had so many discussions about being more inclusive in this fandom that ended badly because people absolutely refuse to consider other people might not identify how they do… I can tell you right now, I’m not going to do this back and forth again with anons and justifying myself about things I never said or thought. I’m not in the state of mind for it… So unfollow, block, do whatever you have to do. I predict I’m going to lose at least 10 or 20 followers just by encouraging the use of them/they pronouns in general Shepard posts and that’s fine. I can live with that. 

anonymous asked:

I don't want to sound weird but you are one of the kindest person I've ever seen. You are so caring and positive, sometimes I look at people's profile to find your warmhearted vibe on them, but they are so rare. You make me feel like I am drinking salep while I'm under a blanket in a winter night, you feel like home, welcoming and heart-whole. I hope your heart never breaks. I hope nobody makes you a person so cold that you can't even know yourself anymore.

this is such a kind and poetic message. i’ve read this message many times before deciding to publish, in large part because i wanted to be sure i would be able to find it again. 

thank you for taking the time, and more than that, thank you for seeing such a goodness in me. it’s hard to believe that anyone might have such kind things to say about me, of all people. but i’m so, so grateful. 

i’ll use this to reflect on when i feel low. i’ll try to remember that who i am is determined by how i am, and that’s very important. thank you for this message, thank you for your sweetness, and your generous words.

i hope i never let you down.  ❤

You are the single most important person in my life. One thing I’ve come to realize is love isn’t always happiness. There are tears, anger, confusion, fears, but at the same time there are smiles, laughter, joy, & understanding. All of those things can happen. That’s why love is such an emotional thing. You can feel so many different emotions at the same time. That`s why it’s so overwhelming. But I know one thing ; I would not take back any single thing. Everything that has happened between us happened for some reason. & us being strong & making it through this, it only shows that our love is strong enough to last a lifetime.

anonymous asked:

I'm really really sorry I offended you. I was just curious about if you had more story you were wanting to tell with it, definitely wasn't implying you had lost interest or didn't have other things to do. Was just curious thats all. I'm very sorry if my question was written offensively, i didnt realize.

It’s okay, I’m sorry too that I sounded too harsh (ugh deadline week stress is rearing out its ugly head). I really, really want to draw more comics. I was so sad for a while cos I’ve been so busy I couldn’t draw as much as I used to! But it’s ok. Can’t help but adapt with it. 

And yes, I still have many more stories to tell! I want to tell them all! :-)

ninth-00  asked:

Hi! Im super self conscious of my looks and rarely take pictures of myself because I end up feeling worse. I want to love myself like you seem to. Do you have any advice?

I’m really insecure and anxious myself that’s precisely why i take so many pictures! so i can get used to seeing myself, it helps to counter the way i see myself in my head
and well getting people’s attention is nice too
i guess “fake it til you make it” was the best advice in my case, if you constantly say/think good things about yourself you’ll start believing it at some point

anonymous asked:

So excited 2 have u as my secret Santa u r such a great writer it is an honor to craft a gift for u I copied my anon by leaving out punctuation & grammar so u can't guess who I am love how detailed ur form was and can't wait to make something special for u - what are some of ur favorite fics? what is your favorite thing about Han? and Leia?

Hello, Santa! So great to hear from you. I love how sneaky several of the anons are being…the surprise is a big part of the fun.

My form was really detailed just because I like to give lots of ideas…but don’t feel like you have to try to use a whole bunch of those ideas. They’re intended mostly to be food for thought.

Favorite fics is always such a tough question, because I like so many different things and there are far too many to actually name. A few of my longer favorites include the Identity series by @madame-alexandra, @cicatrick‘s New Hope, Indiana, @knightedrogue‘s Mighty Things, several of @mandatheginger‘s fics (particularly her recent Affirmation), and Zyra M’s Accidental Marriage.

I also love little “moments” fics like @graciecatfamilyband‘s Something Nice and @organanation‘s The Alderaanian Tango. Most of the things I like are kind of a mix of humor and seriousness, and show how Han and Leia really care for each other (even if they’re about some moments of tension between them).

My favorite thing about Han is how completely gaga he’ll be over Leia while trying to pretend that he doesn’t care about anyone. My favorite thing about Leia is how hard she fights for what is right. My favorite thing about them together is how they complement each other, challenge each other, and support each other.

Anyway – this will be fun! Thank you for the ask, Secret Santa!

watching the news and just.

“giving money directly into the hands of the homeless is by far the worst thing you can do for them. All it does is enable them to continue a homeless lifestyle and use their money on drugs and alcohol”

WHAT IN THE ENTIRE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT LADY?????? FUCK YOU. There are so many unused homes and empty apartments and bullshit all across this god damn country that could be converted into housing for the homeless to help them get back on their feet but I don’t see y’all doing a god damn thing about it! Sit on fucking tv news and tell me that giving money to the homeless is the worst thing I could fucking do for them is BULLSHIT and you and all your god damn rich friends fucking know it.

anonymous asked:

With that rule of thing list you posted, could you post examples of previous things that were foreshadowed and came to pass, using that method to deduce them?

That’s difficult to do because many characters in the book and show don’t have closed arcs. It’s actually easier to make endgame predictions based on the character traits/foils, because predictions can be more fluid (and also wrong! lol) Some are also characters in the past. We don’t have their POV, only have second-hand accounts. 

I may have to mix up show events and book events here, so be forewarned.

Jon=Beric and Catelyn. When Jon died we knew he would be resurrected somehow. When looking at the past resurrections, you could have built a theory that Jon would be next in line after Beric and Catelyn. We knew that red priests gave the “kiss of life,” that Jon needed one, and that there was a red priest at the Wall. But that was logistics. Digging deeper into the themes of all three, the fight for justice/vengeance connects them. Beric was sent by Ned to fight for justice for the smallfolk after the Mountain’s raids. Catelyn as Stoneheart turned Beric’s mission into vengeance against the Freys. The message of Beric/Stoneheart is how justice can slide easily into vengeance. Jon was fighting for justice for the people traumatized by Ramsay, his sister included. However, his victory at Winterfell in the show appeared to focus more on vengeance than justice, since he had to stop himself and let Sansa take over the latter. In short, Beric and Catelyn’s resurrections by fire and their contrasting goals suggests that a similarly resurrected Jon would start out seeking justice that would eventually turn into vengeance.  

Brienne=Sansa and Arya. It’s ironic that Brienne shares traits of the Stark sisters because she’s searching for them in Feast. Actually, Brienne almost blurts out that she’s searching for her sister, so it’s like she’s taking over Arya’s role by serving as Sansa’s shield. Brienne idealizes knighthood like Sansa (albeit in a more realistic way) and is the warrior woman whom Arya aspires to be. Since Sansa and Arya have had to be deceptive, changing their names and lying to survive/learn, it seemed way past time for Brienne to really have to “sell a lie” like her life depended on it. And there she is in the last book, lying to Jaime and luring him into what looks like Lady Stoneheart’s trap. So Brienne had to become closer to what Sansa and Arya were experiencing because she is a blend of both characters.

Okay, I know this has been said so many times by now, but the thing I simply cannot get over about the video is how it’s just such a genuine glimpse into “how Jungkook sees Jimin” - a glimpse we couldn’t have gotten anywhere else, or in any other way. Through the clips he chose to use, in those not even 4 minutes we get to see so much of what Jungkook sees when he’s looking at him:

Jimin who doesn’t have to be flawless around him 24/7.

Jimin who is always dancing simply because he loves to.

Jimin who can tire of cameras.

Jimin who doesn’t even have to look to trust that Jungkook is following.

Jimin who is cute,

and sexy,

and beautiful,

and a dork.

Jimin who loves him.

The Jimin he loves.

Thoughts about JM & JK’s trip:

Jimin’s edit showed how much he prized sharing simple things with Jungkook. They are always followed by bodyguards, managers, and fans so something as plain as walking in the streets or spending the night at an amusement park was very precious to start with but living it with someone he liked and lives the same circumstances as him, makes it more valuable. His edit made us recall how some people & circumstances can turn even the most basic things into the best situations in life just by charing them with us. Just by understanding our preferences and what we seek. 

His editing was very blurry and amateurish. Yet, he captured the happiness and fun they had better than many pros. But, you know why? because it was genuine. This is something Jimin wished to happen and it did. Again no one can win over Jimin’s strong ambition to achieve what he wants in life.

Meanwhile, Jungkook’s edit looked like he loved that trip only because Jimin was part of it. It seemed as if everything meaningfully existed just so Jimin will go there, be there, eat there. He was most of the times behind guarding or waiting for him. Indeed, His focus was centered around another person. Not even once he intended to show himself. Like saying: I had fun because Jimin had fun. The food tasted better because Jimin ate deliciously. This childish ride I would usually not pick was so amusing because Jimin’s expressions and reactions were priceless …  His edit made us recall how we can still find happiness in a dear one’s smile

His editing contrary to Jimin was skilfully made and precise. He thought about everything from the storyline, to the angles, not even forgetting about the song that will marry the clips together. Contrary to many who think Jungkook do not care. This short video undoubtedly became the proof no one can deny that he is not uncomfortable with his Hyung. He used to call himself selfish but looking at him today, this boy is more caring and kind than he thinks himself.

Movies I learned sugar skills from

We all know Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, and Halle Berry are some of the gems we have in movies now. But I’ve watched a lot of movies that helped me gain the sugar personas I had and I want to share some of those with you all.

Girlfriend experience

This is one of the more popular movies for sex workers and it is now a tv series. I personally liked it because I was ending a relationship while I was sugaring and I did feel some of the ways Christine felt.

Another thing I loved about this movie was the documentation and research this girl did on her clients. I use to have a notebook filled with all my POTs and SDs info, status, job info, likes and dislikes, turn ons, etc. My ex stole it a while ago but lucky for me I didn’t write down searchable info, even the names were in code.

I would recommend this as the first to watch before you binge watch sex work movies like I did.

Memoirs of a geisha

This is one of my personal favorites because I love the Asian culture when it comes to beauty. The grace, the discipline, and the routine of these woman is really what got me.

When I saw that one look method I was determined to get it to work for me. The Kama Sutra movie below also helped me achieve this. But nothing gets a man across the room faster than an enchanting look from a beautiful woman in their direction.

From this movie I was able to learn how to move more gracefully which is very attractive for men who like “exotic” women. So if you got hips sway them, if you have long legs be swift with your steps, and if your hand are flawless move them like a water bender on avatar (anime joke).

The Treacherous

This movie is very gory so if that’s not your thing don’t watch it. But it does show some intense training for courtesans (old world Asia times).

The seductiveness of these women turned me on so I knew the same methods would turn any man on too. My favorite seductive move is the removing of clothes shown in the beginning scenes where the man challenged the woman to a strip game.

Another scene that showed me a lot of gems was the actual training of the women and how they were to taught to please. I even got some old school hoe tips for my Vag in this movie.

Kama Sutra

Yes it is spelled right and yes it is about using Karma Sutra. If you want a movie example of how some Karma Sutra techniques work then look no further.

This movie showed me how equally important foreplay is for men as it is for us. It showed little snippets of how even feeding can be sensual for men. My favorite tip from the movie would have to be the eye movements of the women while they danced. Those eyes have gotten me compliments from many dance teachers because they could see sexiness in my eyes.

Just look at these eyes:

Etiquette of a mistress

In case you haven’t noticed by now I watch a lot of Asian movies. This one in particular is informative and funny so you’ll really enjoy watching it.

If you’re a sugar that deals with a lot of married men this movie is for you. It shows you how to be properly discrete with your time together and how to deal with the cons of a married man. The best part of this movie is it shows the perspective of a veteran and a newbie, so I know my vets will enjoy this if they or helping any newbies out there.

Wolf on wall street

This is of course on here because of the famous Naomi character that we love so much. Her sharp tongue is definitely needed when you are trying to pass through all the BS talk. But another thing to pay attention to is her physical presentation of herself. Her style with her looks was like devil in a red dress but with diamonds add.

Two can play that game

This one is mostly for my brown SBs who are close to their mid 20s.

In the 2000s this movie was like the black woman’s player guide. I’ve used many of these strategies to get men back on track to what I wanted. My little black dress is still in the closet waiting for the day my fiance acts up.

One thing from that movie I don’t do is flaunt another man because doing that in this world can severe ties real quick.

A lot of people focus on Shante in this movie but I also loved watching Conny too. Mainly because I love Gabrielle Union’s acting especially in Being Mary Jane.

I didn’t learn much from this movie for my personal gain but I did learn a lot about sex work around the world. So if you’re just interested in a movie that shows you different kinds of sex workers watch this.

Breakfast at Tiffany

I love a good Audrey Hepburn movie because her white woman swag is just as awesome as Marilyn’s. She taught me how to be sweet and

youthful while also being mysterious and unavailable.

Being sweet and youthful is what kept my men feeling lucky to have me. But being mysterious and unavailable at times is what kept them on their toes and more willing do what was needed to “secure” me.

Show Girls

I’m starting to think I should’ve tried stripping because sexy dancing is one of my favorite things to do. Expressing with my body is like art to me but I was probably right not to strip, I would get addicted.

This movie however made me more glamorous and aggressive when it came to my sexy looks. I never got a chance to see real show girls in Vegas but I’m pretty sure I would be in awe by them. I’ve never been a glamorous person but after this movie I started adding a little shimmer and glitter to my style.

Chicago

Again with the dancing lol, I’m sorry ladies but these women, even with out the dancing were phenomenal. The He Made Me Do It song was an all time favorite for me.

But as far as lessons I started to see how competitive women could be when it comes to money and credibility/fame.

I learned on movies like this how to out smart them when it comes to whales.There have been many new girls who tried taking my main SD away from me but they couldn’t get to my relationship quality. Even when girls did get some dates from other SDs of mine they didn’t last long. So please remember ladies quality and good relationships always wins when it comes to real SDs.

Josephine Baker Biography

My girl next door persona has always got me the most money. So when I saw this biography I started mastering it. Her happy demeanor and tiny voice was so close to mine it wasn’t hard to practice.

What made me the happiest, was that even though she was sweet, innocent, and goofy she was also sensual. She knew how to express her sexuality without taking away from her innocence.

The end of the movie was sad and showed a lot of her flaws but she was still iconic.

Confessions of a Brazilian Call Girl

I can’t remember if this is based on a true story are not but it’s amazing. Especially with the online social platforms we have now, this movie has been very useful. This woman on here became a high class call girl based on online status alone.

She was also another person I looked to for glam sexuality and showed many women that even average women can dominate the sex world. There were bad parts like her cockiness and drug use but if she would’ve stayed in her grind she would’ve still been raking in millions. One thing this movie can show you (on the bad side) is that you should never try to “Keep up with the Jones” even in the sex world because it’s never greener on the other side.

Call Me: The Rise and fall of Hiede Fliess

If you don’t know Hiede Fliess, look her up now. She’s the greatest when it comes to call girls. The tactics she used to get where she was is amazing. She really knew how to keep connections with her clients and how to get other girls money.

I don’t know what she does now but I do respect the contributions she’s made to the sex work industry. If you’re in LA or Hollywood you should really watch this movie.

Some notable tv women I watch

Joseline Hernandez

She’s so unapologetic about who she is and will get money by any means necessary. Her and Cardi B are like alter egos I wish I had sometimes.

She is one of the realest woman I’ve seen on TV and she used what she had to get her fame. Now that she got it she is doing here to the max and I’m happy for her.

Nene Lakes

I can see myself being like Nene when I get older and wealthier. She is a star in many forms and doesn’t let these women or her man interfere with her money. She went from housewife to breadwinner even outside of the show.

I get all my bougie ways from Ms. Whitley lol. Really she was a good representation of a high class but down to earth black woman for me. She started out a little too much for me but after some seasons she grew on me. I’m always a sucker for tiny voiced women because mines is tiny too (Not as annoying as hers).

Now I’m going to be honest I just started watching power but I love this women’s attitude. She’s sexy, ride or die, and also strategically vengeful. I might update this after I finish the show but for now that’s all I have to say.

This woman beats me in being bougie and extra. I’ve never seen anyone who goes all out like she does. When I was in college I always wanted to be a like southern belle with curves so when this show came on I was tuned in. If you ever wanted to see an example of a curvy southern belle that can still get a little ghetto, Here she is.



This list is just a few of the many women I’ve watched to perfect my personas.

Now, when I switch my persona it’s not to completely change who I am but helps me adapt to different environments.


For example: If my SD likes to watch football games from his box then I’m not going to go into my prim and proper mode, I’m going to bring out girl next door me.


Depending on what your daddy likes you’re going to be put in different types of atmosphere and if you’re black than your going to need to adapt. The way to more opportunities is by building your credibility which is usually based on how much people like you. You re like an undercover celebrity lol.

Now if you don’t want to change that’s fine but that’s what’s work for me.

I change up like a Johnny Depp Movie role

Much Love T

I’m really tired of people disregarding Keith and Lance (or any gay ship in general) just because they don’t think it’s possible for two boys to have a possible canon relationship in 2017.

This show is apart of Dreamworks, it’s a kid’s TV show, so that means they’re not gonna be shoving gay content down kid’s throats, because they know how sensitive of a topic it is still to some people. But that doesn’t make it any less possible for something to happen. Most of the creators of Voltron came from LOK and what did they do? They literally left Korra and Asami’s relationship to the last minute and it was nothing more than them holding hands. Except their whole relationship developed well over time and it still meant something.

This isn’t some heterosexual relationship that they can put so obviously in the show since so many kids are used to seeing that from the get go, but they can put small moments and hints to give an indicator. 

There have been subtle moments between Keith and Lance that I find hard to view as them “just being friends”, and even though it’s more from Keith’s side it’s still important.

But let me emphasise, if anyone ever saw a boy and a girl in this situation they would think almost immediately that there is something romantic between them, and this isn’t even a stretch:

If they showed Keith smiling at a girl like this, people wouldn’t even hesitate for a second to think he had a crush on her:

If a boy and a girl made fun of/teased each other as much as Keith and Lance did, they’d immediately think it was flirting. 

So why disregard it just because it’s happening between two boys? And I know people are also disregarding it because it’s canon that Lance likes Allura. That’s been an obvious fact since season one, but even if it doesn’t happen, Lance can’t like boys either? That’s literally not even an option on the table for some people because they want their straight ships to sail into the sunset.

The producers/creators said that they’d give us some sort of LGBT rep in the show, and it could be between/through anyone, but from the huge af hint Lauren gave us here, it’s either Lance or Shiro are one of these reps, and it could even be both. It doesn’t even have to be limited to just them (because I strongly believe my son Keith is not straight).

So why not just embrace it already? That two boys or girls can fall in love, that it’s OK to have a canon gay relationship in a show. It’s happening, it has already happened in many other shows, so let’s just accept it. 

Witchcraft 101: Core concepts (energy work)

You’ve probably heard “energy work” mentioned, or at least one of the following terms: grounding, shielding, cleansing, raising, charging, visualising, casting. You’ll see these terms in spells and rituals as well as textbooks and theoretical discussions. There are other posts for theory; this post aims to give a rundown of multiple basic concepts of energy work to get you up and running. (Or at least, to help you understand other posts.) Bear in mind that much of this is personal opinion. Since everyone sees energy differently, in my “how-tos” I’ll refer to energy generally - fill in your own views. 

Also, in my methods, I mention “get comfortable” a lot - exactly what that means varies, depending on what I’m doing and wearing, but generally, stop fiddling with anything, and make sure you’re in a comfortable position, whatever the position is. You could be standing, sitting, lying down, moving, dancing - whatever, so long as you’re comfortable. 


Visualising

What is visualisation?

I consider visualisation to be a core concept to energy work in general. Visualisation is, essentially, thought. It’s imagination and memory and emotions all rolled up into one. (This is heavy on personal opinion, by the way.) Visualisation is what makes your intent for a spell come to fruition; if you aren’t holding your intent (i.e. thinking about/visualising it) while casting it, you can’t expect your spell to work the way you intended it to. 

How do you visualise?

As mentioned above, everyone sees energy differently, and your way may not be the same as mine. My basic visualisation method can be seen in the way I do any time of energy work: I get comfortable, close my eyes and steady my breath, and I focus on feeling and “seeing” the energy around me (I view all energy as white, incidentally). Say I’m cleansing something, my first step is to hold the object, focus on how it feels (is it cold, smooth, rough?) and “see” it glowing with a white light (energy). Then I’ll move onto cleansing it (see below). 

Your method will be different, but you could start with this or look through other posts for ideas. 

Grounding

What is grounding?

Grounding, basically, is all about ridding yourself of unwanted energy/getting your energy in balance. I kind of view it as a warm-up: you’re getting yourself in the right frame of mind and the right physical state before a workout (or spell). 

How do you ground yourself?

Everyone has their own techniques, and in time, you’ll develop yours. This is my routine:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. 
  • As you exhale, imagine unwanted energy leaving your body.
  • As you inhale, imagine the energy you want and need pulling comfortably around you. 
  • Continue for as long as you like. 

Many people like to visualise different places, or contact with nature. Try different techniques and take what you like from them, and just go with what works for you. 

Cleansing

What is cleansing?

Cleansing is like setting a device back to factory settings, or washing the dishes so they can be used again. You cleanse something to rid it of any unwanted energies - kind of like grounding, but for something that isn’t you. You could cleanse spaces and objects, and it’s generally a good idea to cleanse any items you’ve used before as well as the space you’re using before beginning a spell. It’s also generally a good idea to cleanse anything you use for divination, like tarot cards and pendulums (but I totally don’t cleanse them as often as I should). You can use just visualisation, or you can use tools - water, salt, incense and sage are all pretty common tools for cleansing. 

How do you cleanse?

My method for objects that you can hold:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • Hold the item and focus on how it feels - its shape, size, temperature, texture, and scent. 
  • While holding the item, now focus on how it looks (with or without opening your eyes) - its colour, decorations, the way the light falls/reflects on it.
  • Still holding the item, visualise energy glowing/pulsing around the object.
  • Still holding the item, visualise the energy flowing away from the object, leaving it without any glowing energy.
  • Continue until you feel like the object is cleansed. 

My method for a space, area, or room:

  • Clear the space you plan on using (physically - move unwanted objects out of the way, pick up any rubbish etc).
  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • Mark the parameters of the space you’re going to use (this can be a whole room or just part of one - just mentally or physically figure out where the “ends” of your spell space are). I generally walk around the edges of my space.
  • Focus on how the space around you feels and looks - temperature, light, textures etc. 
  • Visualise energy glowing/pulsing within the boundaries of your space.
  • Visualise energy flowing away from the space - if you have a broom, you could sweep the area while visualising the energy moving away as you sweep. You could also use incense or herb bundles while visualising energy moving away from the smoke as you move through the space.
  • Continue until you feel like the space is cleansed.

Warding

What is warding?

Basically, warding is putting up a shield to stop anything unwanted interfering with your spell, tools, ingredients, intent, belongings, etc.. It’s like an antivirus on a device, or a lock on a door. You could put up wards around your spell space, your home, yourself, anything you own, other people (with their consent) - pretty much anything.  

How do you put up wards?

My method for putting up wards:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • Mark the parameters of the space or thing you’re putting up wards around (this could be running your finger around a crystal, walking around an area, stretching your arms and legs out to mark the parameters of your body, etc.)
  • Focus on how the space or thing feels and looks - temperature, light, textures etc.
  • Visualise energy glowing/pulsing within the space or thing.
  • Visualise unwanted energy flowing away from the space - like with cleansing, you could use incense or a broom to aid your visualisation.
  • Visualise “walls” growing up, over and under the space or object. It’s important that the walls connect, and there aren’t any gaps (unless you want to visualise, say, a door that you can enter and leave from). 
  • Continue until you feel like the space or thing is warded.

Raising

What is raising energy?

Raising energy is like creating or compiling energy with a specific purpose (intent). Up until now, we’ve been looking at ways of using energy to prepare yourself, your environment and your tools for spells - raising energy is a bit different. The energy that we raise has a specific intent, and generally, we want to use that intent somehow - like in a spell. 

How do you raise energy?

There are so, so many different ways to raise energy - such as music, chanting, dancing, walking, laughing, exercising, and a whole bunch of others. You can also raise energy by visualisation alone - as I describe here.

My method for raising energy:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • If they aren’t already, position your hands so that your palms are open.
  • Focus on what you want to happen - your intent.
  • Visualise energy pulsing from your fingertips. The energy moves over your fingers and towards your palm, where it collects. As you do this, keep focusing on your intent.
  • Visualise the energy, now in your palm, growing larger and larger. As you do this, keep focusing on your intent.
  • Continue until you feel you have the energy you wanted, or for as long as you like. 

If you’re raising energy from, say, dancing, you might visualise the energy coming from your feet or body instead - I adapt this depending on the activity, but I always like to have a way to “gather” energy in one area. This could be your whole spell area, or it could be an area like the palm of your hand - whatever works for you and the activity. 

Charging

What is charging?

Charging is drawing on energy from elsewhere and putting it into an object to give that object intent. Think charging your phone, or laptop. You can also take energy you’ve raised and put it into an object - the energy can come from anywhere. People often have specific correspondences for different sources, however - so think about the source of the energy if you aren’t raising it yourself. 

How do you charge something?

Like with raising energy, there are entirely too many methods to list here. Some examples include leaving objects in sunlight or moonlight and bathing it in water or fire. You can pretty much do anything, so don’t be afraid to experiment. If you’re raising energy, you can just put it straight into the object (see the method below). If you’re charging something without raising energy yourself, then you can skip this and consider it charged after as much or as little time as you think works. 

My method for charging objects:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • Visualise the energy, now in your palm, growing larger and larger. (This is the energy collected by raising energy, with a specific intent.)
  • Hold the object you want to charge (with one hand if you visualised the energy going to one palm, or with both hands if you visualised the energy going to both palms) and visualise the energy flowing into the object from your palm(s). Continue focusing on your intent as you do this. 
  • Continue until you feel that all the energy you raised is now in the object, or for as long as you like. 

Once you’ve charged an object, you can leave it indefinitely and use it in a later spell (though if you’re forgetful like me, you might want to put a post-it near it reminding you what you’re using it for).

Casting

What is casting?

Casting is guiding your energy towards the outcome you want. For me, this is the most important part of any spell - this is when you put all that work into making shit happen. So it’s important to be very, very specific. Don’t just focus on needing a job. Focus on finding a job that is right for you, will help you meet your professional goals (you can be specific about the goals, too) and will meet your needs (availability, hours, pay, travel time, benefits etc.), and finding that job at a time that suits you. This is also where you can really have fun with visualising! 

How do you cast?

My method for casting:

  • Get comfortable.
  • Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
  • Hold the object(s) you’ve charged, or your spell (if it’s a tangible thing, like spell bags, candles, food etc.).
  • Visualise the situation you want to happen. As described, be specific. If you’re looking for a job, you could visualise a “you’re hired” email, dated at some point that suits you, with the above information that suits you - the hours you want, the pay you want, etc. Morph that situation into your first day, meeting friendly and efficient coworkers and management, then six months or a year into your new job. Visualise yourself feeling productive, happy, and relaxed. Visualise yourself at a review, hearing that you’re doing well and you’ve made great progress.
  • Now visualise the energy in your spell moving “towards” that situation. (I like to “keep” the situation in one part of my spell space, usually in the air in front of me, so I can “see” the energy from the spell I’m holding moving towards it. 
  • Continue until you feel that all the energy from your spell has “made it” to the situation, or for as long as you like.  

Bringing it all together

So, this looks like quite a lot. I promise it’s easier in practice, especially once you’ve done it a few times. Also, remember that this is a post that largely focuses on visualisation - you can minimise effort by charging objects in light or water (aka leaving them on a windowsill for a few hours) instead of by using visualisation to raise power and charge them. 

In practice, a routine for a spell might look like:

  • Ground yourself.
  • Cleanse your space, and any tools or ingredients you’re going to use.
  • Put up wards.
  • Raise power (you could raise power individually for individual ingredients, or all at once for all your ingredients).
  • Charge your ingredients (either individually, or all at once). 
  • Cast your spell. 

Personally, I can do the first 3 in about 5-10 minutes altogether. The last three are more time-consuming, and could take 5-10 minutes each, per item. So a quick, simple spell with no ingredients could be cast in 15 minutes (I would just skip charging and put the raised energy straight to casting). Let’s take an example of a kitchen spell, making soup:

  • Ground self.
  • Cleanse space, tools, ingredients.
  • Put up wards around the kitchen.
  • Raise power while doing food prep.
  • Put ingredients in pot.
  • Charge ingredients through stirring - energy goes into the soup through the wooden spoon.
  • Leave to simmer and continue charging.
  • Cast spell by eating. 

When I do kitchen magic, I’m already doing most of this just by cooking. I just add more visualisation in, and put some thought into the ingredients, and I have a spell!
