What are Starseeds? I High Functioning Autism | God Touched | Indigo Children | Witches | Lightworkers | Uniqueness & Non-Conformity as Spiritual Ideals
Today’s Bathtime Blog…yellow gold moodlights, Lana Del Rey & Lush’s Yoga BathBomb.
I was recently asked this on my FB group page. Answering without sounding so kookie people following the page who hadn’t heard the term might think definition meant answering it quite carefully! Some new age ideas are very old ideas but with new “jargon” or extensions of existing beliefs and ideas not new to all religions but somehow “reframed” out of context so they do come over sounding a bit far fetched!
It’s a criticism I have for the “New Age” in general. Lots of ideas without much basis and without any subjective or objective reasoning behind them…let alone citing sources that have existed for thousands of years that say the same thing in different words. I am also guilty of not citing sources. I have a really good memory (part of my aspergers – high functioning autism). But I draw a blank remembering faces. And apparently names too. When I am reading fiction I notice I almost blank names as I read them! So even if I remember the book…the cover…where I was when I read it etc, I won’t have retained the author’s name. My mind seems to consider names very unimportant which is why most people in my life have nicknames I’ve given them. It’s my weird “name blindness”.
Anyway…back to the topic…in answering the question referring to similar or associated ideas the person was likely to know instead of me rambling on with a lot of new age jargon, I feel I explained the concept well.
As a teacher of energy healing, attunement based spiritual development courses and meditation based courses, I am very aware of ensuring my writing is accessible to people who have no previous experience.
Also, I am not running a cult teaching new words for ideas that promote exclusivity…or fudge the details so people don’t realise they are not being told anything. Those are pet hates of mine.
Also, as a teacher I don’t want to alienate people who hold religious beliefs that may be different to mine. I don’t teach religion and I don’t like it when people dress ideas and philosophies as being facts. We can be as objective in our explanations as possible – but even the best articulated philosophical deductions are open to debate. (I do feel my Autism helps me to communicate higher concepts in a more accessible way because I have to do it so much as my normal life experience. It definitely helps rather than hinders my work!).
I promote freedom and empowerment so I won’t dogmatically preach theories as facts. I know some new age writers do this…but I think real understanding is only available when you digest information for yourself.
I may be hypersensitive to it…aware sometimes that a blog is addressed to people with a prior knowledge…I always try to pitch my writing so it’s useful to people without prior knowledge; defining terms sometimes makes all the difference!
Anyway…enough about my motivations for the way I addressed the question! In my own words, the answer goes something like this…
Some people believe in reincarnation. Some believe some of us had previous lives on other planets or stars perhaps in a different dimension not a physical body, but a life or origin that’s not of this earth and possibly not of this plane (dimension).
People who feel that often refer to themselves as “starseeds”.
For me personally, I think it’s very possible other worlds and types of existance are viable in addition to being a humans on earth with some kind of soul that exists beyond our biological reality.
I also do agree with the concept because as I child I recall feeling “homesick”. My Aspergers may have been part of that; some people also believe some “advanced” spiritual beings choose to reincarnate to help others achieve spiritual wholeness and that High Functioning Autism or some types of epilepsy are a part of that.
That’s not a new idea but the term “starseeded” is a new age term for it. They may also use terms like “earth angels”, “indigos” and “crystal children” etc…depending on the current trend in ideas or new ideas about old ideas!
I do feel I lived somewhere else before I came here as a human. And that it wasn’t like this. And I miss it. I think of it as being “homesick for heaven”. But I don’t claim to understand what it was or where it was. I do feel the work I do now in this life was chosen before I came here. And I feel it will continue when I leave (die). But I don’t have proof of that. It’s just something I feel so strongly it feels more real than real to me. And I have since met other people who also remember the “before life”.
Some people would suggest my feelings are born of delusion…failing to grasp that the Asper brain is not prone to delusion or irrationality; they are experiences more common to people whose beliefs are a reaction to their emotions. Rather than someone whose mind is hyper-rational. Our problems in being understood usually come from our capacity to naturally experience and express our experiences in a far more abstract way than our lower-functioning peers.
This capacity for abstract understand is why many High Functioning Autistics display unusually advanced language skills, may be drawn to mathematics and tend to show greater creativity. Not all share the same special skills or special interests. But I have no doubt that the work I do teaching energy healing and my magickal ‘career’ are advanced by my Aspergers in ways people of a neurotypical function wouldn’t experience. I wouldn’t trade my High Functioning brain for one that didn’t see music, feel colours or understand how to reweave karma (spells) the way I do. My work through www.mayastar.netand www.mayamagickal.net absolutely relies on my mind being as it is!
The long and short of it is some people believe people who are born with Higher Functioning Autism or Epilepsy (I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) were “god touched” thousands of years ago. That’s the phrase they would have used here centuries ago. And only relatively recently have the insights, perspectives and non-confirmity of people like me been negatively interpreted as a deficiency or fault.
This is beginning to change. With High Functioning Autistics being head hunted for their unique abilities especially in identifying problems quickly or irregularities in (for example) programming scripts that a Neurotypical wouldn’t be able to do so accurately or quickly.
And of course, the New Age has seen a revival in old spiritual and philosophical understandings that our uniqueness is a gift: an extra abilty not a disability!

I’m just uploading my latest Whispering Witch video to my youtube channel. It’s about applications for the Goddess Aradia Spell which is on the current special offer…but I had to end it with a massive THANK YOU to those people who are watching my videos, liking them, giving me feed back and subscribing to the channel at http://ift.tt/24o08JN
I was really nervous about using this medium because I have Aspergers (a type of higher functioning autism) and sometimes it means, I don’t want to talk. I couldn’t see a way I would be able to make a channel I could use consistently in a way that would be useful. Before my dad died last year, it was something I told him I really needed to do as my business is online and as other networks are become less useful, youtube has gone from strength to strength. I wondered if maybe I might even be able to just use it post up some of my music…but couldn’t see a way of using it that would be particularly useful for my work given my limitations.
Well…the ASMR trend was the answer. And although the channel’s only been running a month, or 3 weeks, it has 45 subscribers. I don’t pay to advertise it or anything – I so share it on my other networks – but to put that in context, my WordPress Blog which I spend a lot more time on, has 30 followers. It does get more views but people don’t tend to subscribe.
Some of the videos I’ve posted have had a much higher number of views than I would have expected. And when I happened upon the ‘analytics’ page on youtube recently I was stunned to find almost 6000 minutes of view time has been racked up in the short time the channel’s been running.
I’ve had good feed back and I’m surprised that I’ve found a niche I can cater to; my style of vlogging is not typical but it’s gone down well – much better than I hoped.
So I post every night. And I will continue to. And thank you sooooo much to those who are already watching my channel…thank you to those who have shared it with other people…thank you for the feedback and thank you for staying tuned. I’m really, really pleased and surprised.
I would be most grateful to anyone who would share this with their friends…anyone who might be interested in my work. I will quote from the ‘blurb’ that comes up in the info area of my blogs and tells you a bit about it…
“Nocturnal Heart to Heart style vlog in ASMR soft speaking format from ALM, the Whispering Witch.
A bit about me, my vlog & the format I use…
I have Aspergers (a type of high functioning autism) means I’m more comfortable using ASMR “whispered conversation”. The mutual increased focus this initiates allows a more intimate communication & natural connection.
My intention is to use whispered conversation to provide a unique & informal style that will be relaxing to watch, pleasant to hear & with subjects accessible to viewers.
PLEASE wear headphones! (straining to hear a computer speaker isn’t relaxing!)
I plan to upload various vids; some may be general or personal updates; others may be more informative, based around my spiritual & magickal work; general chats & reviews. Also, ‘streams of consciousness’…with no fixed ‘subject’.
Please be aware, I have photosensitive epilepsy and when it gets late and I’m winding down, sometimes this affects me so I tend to wear sunglasses indoors – it’s not an attempt to look extremely cool! That’s just a side effect! I’m aware this looks kind of weird to some people but it means I don’t need meds to control seizures so I use what works for me and doesn’t have side effects.
NOTE: Although Whispering is used in ASMR, I use this technique because it is more comfortable for my autism & is a natural part of my night when I’m winding down for bed. More info on my intro vid – https://youtu.be/dNPMSkX5q9I”
If this sounds at all compelling, please tune in and please share the love! XXX

Maya Magickal Update | Price Increases for Magickal Intensives | Killing Moon Karmic Reversal | LightBody Activation Initiation Programme
The price increases for Magickal Intensives will take effect from June. The options affected most significantly are those that are popular to the point that I’m over-booked now more months than I’m not!
So the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive – http://ift.tt/1XAbtVa is currently £600 for the full 30 days, will be increased to £800 after the June cycle begins.
The LightBody Activation Initiation Intensive (which is a 21 day programme) detailed http://ift.tt/1Z3pwBi also be increased from £600 to £800.
Magickal Intensives that include either or both of these options will also be affected. These can be found at http://ift.tt/1NQ9Ws6
These changes will be taking effect in a matter of days so if you’re considering taking any of the options affected buying now rather than later would be recommended if you wanted to take advantage of the existing prices.
Additionally, if you would like information regarding reversal spells, psychic self defence, psychic attack and protection, as well as the details on the website that can be found at the links above, you may also wish to visit my blog at http://ift.tt/1Ug4xd5 there are a number of articles that expand on the information on the site; the same goes for initiation work, self realisation and magick in general. You can also find articles on my channel at http://ift.tt/24o08JN.

Gratitude is often cited as an essential part of the process of manifesting. When we talk about manifesting there is always a contingent that thinks it’s wishful thinking. Perhaps even delusional.
There is a contingent of people who believe in hardship and suffering – considering these things more “real” than positive experiences, happiness and a sense of wellbeing. Not realising the effect their focus has on their perception. And on their life experience. As they say – there is no good wind for a ship that doesn’t know where it’s going!
Defining your intentions isn’t necessarily easy. We are often ambivalent about the things we think we want and create our own resistance to achieving them. For example, you want to lose weight but you don’t want to give up fast food. You want to become a manager but you don’t want to lose the connection you currently have with your co-workers.
Writing a list of pros and cons to help you decide if what you think you want is what you really want can be emotionally tough. Admitting some things to yourself…like an intense fear of failure…can make you feel less confident and less capable before it makes you feel better! But developing our self awareness is sometimes hard. It also may take time to feel right in yourself when you call yourself to account.
I remember a long time ago…ending a long term relationship that was essentially abusive, was difficult in a personal way because I felt so guilty for putting myself through it and for ever holding myself in such low esteem that I let things slide that I shouldn’t have. Far more than the change in my circumstances or ideas of missing what I was used to in my life, I was really consumed by guilt about my own bad treatment of myself in allowing the relationship to continue when I should have ended it years back.
So self awareness that allows objective and precise definition of your goals and intentions is a process. It is something you learn to do better the better you know yourself.
Which is why I advocate a focus on Gratitude as a primary means of achieving your goals…and here’s why…
Developing a habit of being grateful means shifting your perspective and allows you to see the good in the bad; the opportunity in knock back; the potential in the struggle. And approaching development of self awareness with an “attitude of gratitude” makes the process far less painful. Seeing the good in the bad even while you’re experiencing something challenging, turns the tables!
On my channel http://ift.tt/24o08JN I recently recommended some exercises to assist in embracing gratitude. And one that I think is a real eye opener to the potential of “counting your blessings”, is to push yourself to do it!
You might choose any number for this challenge…if you keep a gratitude diary and every day write down the things you are grateful for – even on days that seemed predominantly bad, you may find you remember being grateful for small things…enjoying the smell of the rain…having a long hot bath…your home…the things you take for granted you might be able to fill a page with if you decide to do it.
But what about if rather than count your blessings, you challenge yourself to find 100…200…500. List the numbers and at the start of the exercise you will tend to list things like friends and family. Pets. Your home. Your job. Once the big things are covered you being to list the small things…your first coffee of the day…the falafels you had for lunch…etc.
And then it becomes harder…you have so many numbers to fill. You’re wracking your brain. And pretty soon you’re writing good aspects of bad experiences. Once it begins your mind ferrets through your whole past looking for potentially good things in the negative experiences of the past. If you keep at it, you can’t help but fall into a mindset of gratitude and a feeling that nothing bad ever happened to you…there were challenges but they turned out to be good things later.
That’s the mindset that aligns you with your goals, ambitions and hopes and dreams; with no inner conflict or resistance to good things coming into your life you don’t just attract good things because you resonate with good things – your mind is focused in a way that means you see opportunities – you look for them and so you see them just as surely as people looking for problem are absolutely guaranteed to find them.
It’s a choice. We can’t choose everything that happens to us. But we can choose how we interpret it and respond to it.
So I absolutely recommend starting any manifesting work with actively pursuing and cultivating an attitude of gratitude. Everything naturally follows from decision.

Quick Beauty Tips Blog n’ Vlog!
This totally unfiltered close up is the most make up you’ll see me wear! I just finished a make up tutorial video I promised my sister & this is the result. Putting on make up and giving a commentary makes it take ages but covered the basic things I use…because I don’t ever wear make up that needs reapplying or retouching so I tend to apply it and wipe it off so the residue is sufficient. Means to the untrained eye it’s hard to tell if I have make up on!
Basic info… I’m 43 this year but I use #cremedelamer moisturiser daily and as I’m #nocturnal, sun damage is limited. I do think #cremedelamer has an anti aging effect…but being a #hermit I don’t really get to compare myself to other people my age. I don’t drink. Quit smoking 9 years ago. Vegetarian for years and vegan for much of it and I dance every day. I think exercise is better than any makeup!
Make up I used…#wunderbrow eyebrow gel (not v neat but I was rushing!), #MineralPowder inc light reflecting #LaMer finishing powder. Lush cream eyeshadow & liquid eyeliner. Lush #redlipstick and tinted #lipbalm.
I do tint my eyebrows and eyelashes and #henna my hair fortnightly. Hair kept shiny with #Lush shampoos and conditioners as I avoid any silicone based products and heat styling. My hair hasn’t actually been cut for about 2 years so as you can see…split ends not a problem!
Took two 15 min vids to complete the demo though! Enjoy!

ASMR General Upd8…family, harp, guitars…and whatever happened to my ex (Wolf)? Narcissistic Personality Disorder? (Answers on a postcard!)
Today’s ASMR Whispering Witch Nocturnal Chat…a general catch up (in 4 parts).
A bit about my dad, his cancer and death, my harp (a little bit of singing)…and a general catch up on “Whatever Happened to my Fiancé?” (Answers on a postcard!)
The latter I have recorded several times. Posting up for the sake of continuity & so when I mention I have stuff to sort out…or refer to the mess that was left in 2014, you have an idea of what I am referring to. In a nutshell, Wolf ripped me off. He claims to be mentally ill. Though I have no way to validate that. My own psychology & psychotherapeutic studies would lead me to guess he has narcissistic personality disorder, is delusional and paranoid…perhaps has a serious mental illness. But that is only my personal point of view.
He is certainly a pathological liar, in my experience and by his own admission. As soon as he finished lying to me, he was lying to his family.
The video may give you clues…many red flags you would associate with NPD.
So tonight’s ASMR vlog is a general catch up…with some chat about how I was done up!
I haven’t had time to delete him from my personal FB historical pages & albums as yet. But he is ancient history to me and we certainly won’t remain in touch!
He left two years ago having lied to me for 14 months. Sometimes being aspie really helps you see the facts for what they are.
This only come up recently due to his attempt to contact me. I think perhaps he hoped some kind of reconciliation was possible. If he harboured any hope in that regard I can only say it was inappropriate in the circumstances at the least.
It’s easy to talk about it now, but his deception damn near derailed my life professionally and personally for a while. So I feel strongly about it right now and would definitely advise others to listen to their intuition. If you’re saving mobiles as evidence “just in case”, something is definitely wrong!

“Through Our Eyes: Living with Asperger’s” | Aspergirl | Magick | Mayastar | Meditation | Energy Healing
I’ve blogged abt my aspergers…vlogged about my aspergers. And being able to use my High Functioning to do my work and do it in ways that a Neurotypical couldn’t, is a fulfilling experience. Living within my means when it comes to social connection, sensory stimulation (have to be more careful because those thing can trigger seizures – perhaps more now than when I was younger), and managing the additional anxiety (aspies make less oxytocin than neurotypicals – that means we don’t have the same way out of stress – most of us develop strategies for that through experience though so that’s something that’s become much easier with time for me).
But sometimes…one of the most depressing things to hear, is someone saying my brain wiring is a syndrome…is your eye colour a syndrome? Would you feel weird if people said you had been born with curly hair syndrome?
I’m sure you would. I feel the same when people see my autism as separate to me. Or they disregard or judge certain aspects while celebrating others. As if certain parts of me are not really connected. I don’t feel that way in myself…I think perhaps it reflects a limitation of the neurotypical mind that it can’t conceive mine as integrated!
People who know me know the challenges I have worked with – my total recall memory for example…great for learning but a nightmare if something bad happens and you remember it.
For me…the best thing that ever happened to me was my formal diagnosis – it meant I could research it and many more things made sense. Also, when you understand the physiological root of some tendencies it’s far easier to look for useful changes in behaviour or habit that will make life easier.
My routine is vital to my well being for reasons different to those a NT would cite. But if it means I eat healthy, exercise, don’t drink or smoke, meditate regularly etc. These are habits that would probably benefit a lot of people!
My habit of being nocturnal also helps a great deal but it works well for me. Magick (the actual process of Self Realisation – not the card game and not conjuring!), was my special interest from an early age and now that’s a huge advantage in my work (teaching online courses for energy healing, spiritual development & meditation – and doing ritual work to help people).
If it wasn’t for the extraordinary advantages that come as part of my autism, I wouldn’t have the extraordinary life I have now.
So I absolutely in no way shape or form would trade myself as I am for a more “ordinary” version ♡

Psychic Attack | Magickal Protection | Abuse & Manipulation | Karmic Reversal Spells | Narcissistic Personalities | Ego Projections & Negative Intentions
The most requested spells and rituals I do for people are Reversal spells. By a long way this type of working (either as a preliminary preparation for other work or as a solution specific working), is what people need help with when they know that spiritually or psychically something is off…even if they’re not sure what it is.
Psychic attacks using black magick are extremely rare. But you need to consider what magick really is before understanding how it can help in other kinds of abuse where natural means don’t necessarily provide some levels of security.
Magick is defined as the art of causing change to occur in accordance with the will. So every act of will (conscious or unconscious) is an act of magick.
When we focus on an intention we begin to take actions and prepare ourselves for a desired situation or outcome to manifest and the Universe backs us up. When our higher will is engaged in seemingly mundane activities, we are reinforcing our intention with action and changes can occur more quickly because we are literally aligning ourselves with our goal.
This isn’t to do with good or evil…it’s more to do with aligning our actions and emotions with our thoughts and intentions. Magick is the way I do it but it does take training and commitment to learn. So I provide magickal services for others as part of my work. The opposite state would be a state of resistance, restriction and disparity. Anyone in that state would be a negative influence on others. Whether by their projected intentions (ego centred consciousness always looks outside for blame or cause), cruel actions, verbal abusive, emotional abuse or physical abuse.
With the outward projection of the ego centred person’s intentions, they are not just capable of psychic attack (abuse on a spiritual level), but they don’t have the self awareness nor the impulse control to prevent it.
This type of psychic attack is extremely common and often the victim questions the reality of it or tries to reason it away by thinking maybe if they were more professional, less sensitive, more confident…(etc)…they would feel differently. It can feel like an act of personal defeat to admit that we are being affected by someone spiritually. It means acknowledging a level of violation we haven’t acknowledged before. It can make a person feel powerless, paranoid and defeated. All of the things that can leave us more vulnerable to this kind of abuse.
Sometimes lifestyle or self esteem issues can mean we become attractive to people who are narcissistic. Times of change or emotional turmoil (a bereavement, change in job or house move), can leave us more vulnerable to the proffered “shoulder to cry on” and also mean we’re in a mental state where apparent encouragement and reassurances are taken “to heart” in ways we might not usually.
Narcissists often display extremely intense acts of apparent kindness, love or attention that a vulnerable person may be drawn to. It’s a phenomenon called “love bombing” and it’s actually a method of manipulation and control. It keeps the victim assured any misgivings they have are rooted in their own issues…not able to pinpoint exactly what feels “off”.
Once an element of control is established, the narcissistic personality requires validation and attention and conformity of the “victim”. The transition can be so subtle that unless you’re looking for it, you don’t notice it.
It’s perhaps worse when the narcissistic personality shows up in a scenario where acknowledging the problem is even more difficult – a work colleague, a client, a family member for example. Narcissists are always parasitic in nature and we may feel it on a spiritual level (intuitively), even while we believe that all is well on other levels.
A narcissist will tend to claim to have the best or worst of everything…childhood, health, luck etc. Their “story” will be compelling. They will usually describe themselves as a victim in some way. Their story may seem too good to be true or too bad to be true. But they lie as easily as they tell the truth and they’re generally pretty plausible. At first.
So the abuse begins right off the bat…manipulation is abuse. So whether they use lies or half truths to convince you of their story (often tailored to the victim by getting allowing you to talk enough about yourself they can tell you exactly what you want to hear). This is second nature to them. They learn to fake empathy by emulating others so they tend to get worse in the sense of being more manipulative or controlling over time. But better at doing it discreetly and fooling others.
Living a lie isn’t a consequence of their actions…for them it’s the method of getting what they need. They may project confidence and self assurance, but they are desparately needy. Craving external validation which they will pursue by any means necessary. It’s not a problem to them. They don’t have a conflicted need to balance their selfishness to assuage their conscience. They are very much stuck emotionally in the area of ego development – they may hide it well but inside it’s all turmoil, drama and obsession. And they feel entitled to have whatever they want. They are often intelligent and have a charming way about them, but scratch the surface and there is a sense of entitlement that trumps everyone else. They don’t have friends so much as pawns.
They are only interested in your interest in them…and how much of that they can acquire. Feeding their ego is like an addiction and they may be addicts for similar reasons. That’s not unusual but it is usually something you find out later.
One good way to assess whether someome is potentially a narcissist, is by repeating their story as they provide it so they are compelled to repeat it. Some may feel more confident because you’re showing an interest. Then deliberately misunderstand something with a statement “but you said you weren’t interested in….” – questionning them usually gives a glimpse of their true nature and anything they can perceive as criticism they will perceive as criticism. It’s likely they will expose a chink in their armour if you do this.
Other ways to do it is to pretend a third party would be critical of them rather than you. And see how they react. Criticism is never well received. At the very least they will seem “strangely” defensive or dismissive. If they think you are on their side and a third party isn’t you may get an insight into their attitude to people who might criticise them. Whether it’s their lifestyle, their past, the colour of their socks…the criticism test is revealing!
Another exposition method is easier later (the more involved you are with them, the more of a minefield their intolerance becomes) offering deliberate compliments and seeing how they react. They may go into an elaborate self effacement speech. They may take on a glow at the “win”.
In fact…look out for their tendency to offer speeches. It’s a tendency to prevent you interrupting. Which belies a tendency to decide what you can say and when.
If you’re dating one…this tendency is one of the weird things you may or may notice. If they think you are about to speak your own mind (rather than theirs), they may react with a kiss. One that ends the conversation. Even if you get the vibe something is up, it’s hard to admit to yourself that a kiss might have been an action of control – to literally shut you up. That seems crazy. Because they are crazy. And unfortunately, not in a way that will change or can be helped by therapy.
The safest way to not be stung by a narcissist is to never get involved. Unfortunately they are drawn to similar traits and some people end up feeling they’re magnets for this type. Literally watch your body language – they will be. If you naturally are a quiet person with a naturally shy or understated demeanour, they may assess at first sight that you’re possibly introverted, passive and insecure. An “easy mark”.
Not all narcissists present all the same red flags. But because their consciousness is so ego centred, they have similarities. And without fail are a negative and destructive influence with a potential for abusive behaviour that’s guaranteed.
There are so many variables in any situation. Any relationship or connection. And the Karmic bond formed with people we mix with, that magick can’t just erase the symptoms; it’s a case of removing the connection to prevent the problem recurring. In long term relationships this may take time because the narcissist will harbour hope they can change your mind and is unlikely to take no for an answer.
So, reversal spells work from the inside out; magick is a process of “reweaving” that makes it less likely the problem will return. A narcissist is waging their own personal psychic war because they project their intentions so fluently (like a kind of psychic incontinence similar). But the reweaving on a psychic level creates an environment that means they will tend to stop considering you a prospect. If it takes a few reversals, it’s because over a period of time their intention may undermine yours. But magick can be greatly empowering in protecting you and preventing their projected need. Which may be to keep you in their life as an enemy if they can’t keep you in it as a friend. It’s most important if using magick to resolve this kind of attack, you don’t allow them a foothold in your actions (no matter how they try to achieve that), because responding to them increases their influence on you and would restrict a successful disconnection to prevent continued harm or disharmony to manifest as part of their “campaign”.
So if you find yourself a victim, don’t become disheartened! Whatever practical steps you take can be supported with magick. It gives you a choice and empowers you to deal with the situation.
So you can see, the idea that someone’s doing black magick and attacking you is nonsensical! Trying to use magick in this way would be against the natural current; it would be like making water flow up hill!
But psychic attack is a common problem. It doesn’t involve someone performing black magick rituals or sticking pins in a voodoo doll or anything so elaborate. It can deliberate but also sometimes unconscious. And the more ego centred the perpetrator is, the more important it is to disconnect fully.
A Karmic Reversal spell is a safe and effective way of preventing the hindering influence of another or others from causing you any harm or restriction on an energetic level. It works from the subject out and simply put it dissolves any negative karmic bonds – reverses negative intentions, speeding up the karma if necessary for full resolution or simply dissolving negative connections if that’s more effective.
It’s really a way to bring harmony to your situation instead of deflecting or ignoring it. In many senses you can consider this kind of magick a healing process; healing by dissolving negativd energetic connections and allowing you to move forward.

Oops! While making a vid about Henna, I had a seizure! If you are curious what a TLE seizure may look like…please check it out! (I haven’t seen myself have one either – so it was interesting for me too!)
Unusual mini vid tonight!
I have temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE).
I was referred for brain scans and tests and prescribed drugs after having a few grand mal/tonic clonic seizures. But found out I had many petit mal partial seizures.
The can affect me in different ways but don’t appear seizure like to anyone watching. I lose my ability to understand what I see. Or I lose my short term memory. Mostly. Or those are the ones I notice.
But due to a v negative effect to an SSRI prescribed during a career change ( which clashes with the autistically wired brain and made me insane! Almost literally), in 2009 I saw my neurologist and said I would like to go drug free because of the mid to long term side effects of drug treatment.
He agreed with me…and we had a long conversation about philosophy where he recommended I read 7 years in Tibet and I recommended he read the Bhagavhad Gita (seriously…there is something about aspers that’s refreshing to those who think spiritually or philosophically…I never expect to have a conversation about it but people feel they can talk on a level with me!).
Anyway. I’m tired tonight and worked a long day so I was busy telling my viewers about my henna mix (hair dye), when my TLE struck. It happens when I rush or when I relax. Light, noise and reading can aggravate it. So I take care to minimise risks. I take valerian root and wind down for a few hours before bed. Wear sunglasses in the bedroom etc.
But fluke of flukes, just had one when I was recording. This is interesting to me. I notice my hand goes to my head like it hurts. It doesn’t hurt. It feels like white noise explosion in the brain. But I don’t fall, I don’t slur, I don’t forget what I am saying even though I go off at a tangent. Most importantly, if I hadn’t told the viewers I was having one, you wouldn’t have known.
Which is why until I had a big seizure, no one knew I had epilepsy!
Listening back to it, I do notice I pause between words increasingly before I have the seizure. And in this tired state, I move my head a lot as if focusing my eyes is uncomfortable. Which it is. And which is usually my cue for a Hepburn treatment (oversized sunglasses indoors).
I am going to post this for epilepsy awareness. Epilepsy doesn’t carry the stignma it once did. For some reason people with aspergers are more likely than average to have epilepsy. Also, sometimes people grow in and out of it.
My autism and epilepsy would be considered disabilities by some. I don’t feel that way about them. Some people have stinky feet and cake addictions…far more debilitating! Also allergies…much worse. So I don’t consider my autism or my epilepsy as disability. Some people have bad manners…surely, that’s worse!
So, I am posting this up with the seizure included for people who don’t know about epilepsy (or henna). Not all epilepsy is grand mal seizures with thrashing about and blue lips. And not all petit mal seizures are the same! I can talk when mine happen but usually can’t see!
I could write more…but I don’t want to write a medical journal article. I just thought maybe it would be informative. If I have never seen myself have a partial seizure before, I expect most people haven’t seen me have one. So it’s sort of interesting…but also may help you understand a bit more about epilepsy in general.
Plus…anything about natural beauty products like henna powder and coconut oil are interesting in a whole different way! So there’s something for everyone!
And also, now you know why I wear sunglasses in the house at night. I am of course, that cool! But they serve a function too!

Magick to Invoke Options, Opportunity & Freedom | Clearing Stagnation | Removing Restriction | Eliminating Limbo
A combination ritual for a client inspired me to blog about the potential for a Tantric Shamanic Ritual Intensive.
All situations are unique, but this particular intensive would be a useful fit for a variety of options. With TS rituals they can be easily tailored for a perfect fit for the client too.
The Loki TS ritual is relatively new to Maya Magickal, and makes a great start to this intensive by removing blocks on all levels – even helping the client to move past blocks that are rooted in their own limited beliefs or hindering effects of their behaviour.
A blocked situation can feel insurmountable. You may that sense of limbo where you feel bound up. Or feel like all options are beyond you because of internal or external restrictions…fear of success can generate massive scale inertia in some people and magick can provide a catalyst to move beyond it.
This is also useful if you need to uncover the source of (for example), harassment, aggravation, deception or some other external influence that is creating a state of stagnation or limbo. The sense of being in the dark and waiting for something to happen can be debilitating and depressing.
The Loki working, followed by the Heimdall working and finished with the Odin working (which can be tailored for your particular circumstance) can be worked to expose the truth (internally or externally) and then resolve the situation by invoking “Justice by Right”.
The final focus being on achieving a sense justification which puts you back in the driving seat of your life with a greater awareness and renewed confidence.
The Loki ritual was originally created for the purpose of unravelling a stagnant situation.
Chaos is sometimes considered a negative state – but Chaos is a state where change is possible – inevitable in fact; stagnation is a negative state; it blocks change and it can persist and affect many areas of your life as your consciousness conforms more and more to the restrictive view.
So invoking an element of Chaos opens possibilities! It’s very effective. And as with all TS workings, the spell works from the inside out. So change from within and is manifested externally as life falls in with the new perspective. It means the positive effects are cumulative and built on a solid foundation. This is true of all the TS rituals I provide. They are extremely comprehensive.
Magick works in real time but because of the focus of this intensive, I recommend it worked on consecutive Saturdays as the Saturn influence is useful ♡
The Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive special offer is still open. I am accomodating as many people as is viable…I can take two more. So the option will be taken down tomorrow night. If I take too many people in a cycle the daily working for all of them could end up tying up hours of each day.
If I work a double KM cycle I do the daily working split into two or even 3, to keep my schedule flexible. The cycle begins on the 12th. But the special offer for both a single working or a triple, ends in 24 hours. Info about the KM http://ift.tt/1pIxihA and http://ift.tt/1xSfUd7

Apple Cider Vinegar | I swear by it | And for centuries it’s had a magickal reputation…one I believe it ABSOLUTELY deserves!
For decades I have been drinking Apple Cider Vinegar daily. In my own mind I think of it as being good for the skin, a good alternative to caffeinated beverages. I also believe it’s beneficial because it has an alkalising effect on the body prevents me getting colds! Do I have proof? Not at all. There are publications about the benefits of ACV and of alkalising. But much of the miraculous benefits is based on anecdotal and personal (subjective) experience. Maybe it’s the world’s best placebo? But in a world where drug companies licence drugs that were out performed by sugar pills, perhaps we shouldn’t be so quick to write off the benefits of a placebo either!
The dangers of the acidifying effects of the Western Diet are well proven. NutritionFacts.Org is a great place to start if you’re a sceptic in this regard. No supplement will out save you from the damage eating a Western diet does! I recommend the annual lectures NutritionFacts.Org put on their YouTube channel each year too.
But back to ACV…for centuries, vinegar has been used for cleaning, disinfecting and in compresses to relief congestion or reduce inflammation. How much of this is folklore and how much based in science is massively hard to determine. Mostly because any scientific evidence is only partially useful (such as conclusions derived from animal tests not human ones). That means much of the science is dismissed as theoretical. And also means sometimes anecdotal evidence seems to trump the actual scientific research because it’s at least based on human experience!
But despite this…I still swear by it! And since it tastes good and doesn’t have negative side effects, I would continue to drink it even it didn’t have benefits!
Apple Cider Vinegar is not like “normal’ vinegar. It smells of vinegar but mix it with water and it tastes like apple juice. Many people swear by honey and lemon…which sounds more paletable than Vinegar I’m sure. But ACV doesn’t taste like vinegar! I particularly like Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar – which you can now find easily at Amazon or your local health food store – which famously includes the “mother” (explained later). And grade B maple syrup is a nice addition if you have a sweet tooth.
As a folk remedy, it has been claimed to help with numerous health problems.
These includes weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels, reduction of symptoms in inflammatory conditions such arthritis. The prevention colds and diseases. Clearer skin and shinier hair. Prevention of food poisoning. Even sometimes suggested as useful to prevent nausea in pregnancy and to cure stomach ulcers! That it can cure and prevent cancer. It can prevent flatulence. It can prevent headaches. There seems no end to the claims for that magick of ACV if you do a quick google search! It’s not new. But it’s currently very much in vogue as alternative and complimentary medicines and supplements go!
I did a little digging and found some interesting properties of Apple Cider Vinegar and associated health benefits that have been scientifically tested (to a point) and verified…things that may go some way to support at least some of the anecdotal claims.
The following health benefits of ACV ARE supported by scientific research. Research that is not extensive or comprehensive enough to make recommendations of dosages or anything. But even so, they are very compelling!
1. ACV is high in acetic acid; this has significant biological properties.
ACV is made by two processes. The first combines crushed apples with yeast. That step causes the sugar to ferment and turns the mixture into Cider – where the sugar has become alcohol. Then the addiction of bacteria enables the fermentation process to continue until the alcohol changes to acetic acid. Acetic acid is found in all vinegars and it is made the same way essentially. But here I am just talking about about ACV.
Organic, unfiltered ACV (like Bragg’s) also contains “The Mother” – this is comprised of proteins, enzymes and bacteria (good bacteria) that make the product look opaque or cloudy.
This is important because some believe that it is the “mother” that’s responsible for most of the benefits – but there’s no scientific proof of that. However there is scientic proof of the benefits of acetic acid.
There are not many vitamins or minerals in ACV but it does contain potassium (good for your bones which aren’t only comprised of calcium!) – and potassium is an important mineral in keeping your heart beat regular. That’s why you find it isotonic drinks. There’s more to optimal hydration than pure water!
Even slight dehydration can make a person feel unwell and cause all kinds of problems in the long term.
2. Acetic Acid has powerful antibacterial effects.
So although it has traditionally been used for disinfecting. It has also been used to treat fungal infections (stinky feet!), lice, warts and ear infections. Gargling with ACV and water may genuinely naturally reduce your risk of catching infections!
However, science has focused on the effects of acetic acid in cleansing rather than the potential benefits of consuming it.
In Victorian times it was commonly used as a beauty aid. Applied to the final rinse of your hair to increase shine. Applied to spots. Applied to the face as a kind of “toner”. It was also consumed to maintain a pale complexion.
However, remember the Victorians also consumed Arsenic in small quantities to keep a pale complexion!
Was it’s common use in beauty treatments due to the fact it was commonly used to clean things so it was accessible to everyone? Possibly. But the science backs some of the claims…
Vinegar was used for wound cleaning by Hippocrates over two thousand years ago. And it’s likely been used widely in that capacity. We still use alcohol to kill bacteria and reduce the risk of infection. It would follow that using it on spots may well be beneficial.
Vinegar was also (and still is) used as a food preservative. Now we can scientifically prove it can do more – studies show that it inhibits the growth of “bad bacteria” (like E Coli) in the food.
Some drink vinegar when on holiday abroad, before meals to “protect” from food poisoning. Does that really work? We don’t know. But it does make a kind of sense!
3. ACV may lower blood sugar spikes.
This is the most successful scientifically tested application of vinegar to date and especially pertinent to patients with type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is identified by elevated blood sugar, either due to insulin resistance or an inability to produce insulin.
We know that in diabetes, diet can manage symptoms and sometimes heal the body – essentially reversing the condition. ACV can’t do that…but it may be helpful.
Indiginous populations have extremely high rates of diabetes from consumption of refined carbohydrates (not just sugar) than those who’ve been eating it longer. We haven’t evolved to tolerate the Western diet. We consider Type 2 Diabetes an age related condition. In fact it’s unheard of in places where the main diet is a plant based vegan diet…high in veggies, low in refined carbs.
Diabetes has a number of complications that can present. Excepting coma and death! Hypertension, nerve pain and blindness. It is a major cause of disability and the reduction of the health span of a person, even ignoring the reduction in lifespan.
That humble ACV may help as a preventative or treatment that has NO SIDE EFFECTS is amazing. And certainly worth trying!
If you are diabetic, of course, run it by your GP before you make changes. Some modern medicines preclude an increase in consumption of vinegar or reduction in the consumption or sugars without supervision…so err on the side of caution.
Blood sugar spikes can also be a problem in people who don’t have diabetes. These fluctuations are known to affect mood, can cause insomnia and even increase seizure risk in epilepsy. Blood sugar fluctuations are also a cause of aging and a precursor to many chronic diseases we have come to associate with age.
Vinegar improves insulin sensitivity during a high-carb meal (in some tests by up to 34%), which significantly lowers blood sugar levels and our response to insulin.
Insulin is the hormone we need for our body to make use of the food we eat. The body literally starves if we don’t make it and similarly the body goes hungry if our body becomes resistant to insulin.
4. Some studies have shown that ACV facilitates weightloss.
Given the benefits outlined in number 3, the mechanism for this may be better understood.
Several studies suggest that vinegar can increase your sense of fullness, helping you eat fewer calories.
In studies, consuming vinegar once a day with a high-carb meal increased feelings of fullness and people ate 200-275 fewer calories for the rest of the day. In context, eating 200 calories less each day in a year equates to about 20lbs in weight!
5. ACV has beneficial effects on the heart.
Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) is currently the world’s biggest cause of death and disability.
Studies showed that ACV can reduce both cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It may also contain the antioxidant which has been shown to protect bad cholesterol particles from becoming oxidised. As I said…the research is lacking. It proves some things…and theorises others. It definitely needs more investigation!
Heart health is a essential for a healthy complexion and it may be where this folk medicine idea originated. The heart when healthy carries oxygen around the body. If it isn’t doing that properly all kinds of problems show up before the heart attack. Erectile dysfunction. Atrophied brain. Back ache due to nerve pain. All part of the same disease.
Scientifically ACV reduced contributory factors to heart disease. As well as reducing blood pressure. That implicates it in potential benefits for many conditions that arise from heart disease…conditions that may show up long before you know you have heart disease.
6. Perhaps the most hyped benefit of ACV is that it protect against the uncontrolled growth of cells which is the cause of cancer.
There are some outlandish claims online about the anti-cancer effects of ACV. Diet and exercise are always going to trump any treatment in the prevention and treatment of MOST cancers. Most cancers are related to lifestyle to some extent. But not all.
Some studies have shown ACV may kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. But more research needs to be done before anyone can claim it is a CURE. The same goes for Essiac Tea & Cannabis Oil.
As with all the studies showing the benefits, the ACV ones are too limited at the moment to be genuinely conclusive. And not all tumours respond to the same treatments. Some vanish on a vegan diet for example. Some don’t. We don’t actually know how many cancers spontaneously heal without intervention. We know some do though!
The main cause of cancer development is damage to the DNA which can be exacerbated by a number of lifestyle choices. So if you want to reduce your cancer risk, I would recommend looking at your diet and exercise programme before you decide to rely on vinegar! But with the health benefits it indicates in studies, it’s a bonus if it does have any anti carcinogenic properties.
From the limited evidence & few studies, I stand by my own anecdotal assertion that ACV may be useful in health maintenance, Anti-Aging and disease prevention. It is made an excellent option for some self testing because it tastes great and doesn’t have side effects!

ASMR Aspergirl Whispering Witch Nocturnal Chat YouTube Channel | Lightworker | Mayastar Academy | Maya Magickal Spells & Personalised Initiation Programmes
New YouTube Channel:
ASMR/Quiet Talking bedroom chitchat from the Whispering Witch!
I am an Aspergirl, Blogger, Lightworker & Modern Mystic.
My Aspergers (a type of high functioning autism) means I’m more comfortable using the ASMR “whispered conversation” method. The mutual increased focus this initiates allows for a more intimate communication & natural connection.
My intention is to provide a unique, relaxed & informal style for viewers.
If you are new to ASMR pls give it a chance…at first it may seem odd but it’s a wonderful method of having a heart to heart “vibe”. I also recommend headphones.
I teach online energy healing, meditation & spiritual development courses, so I plan to cover related subjects as well as hobbies, reviews & personal updates.
I hope you will enjoy!
