Congratulations @Siofra :clap:t2::clap::star_struck::parrot::relaxed: you own the title for the three week streak!! That sounds neat to say lol

I can’t wait to see what the next challenge is :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: the anticipation always gets to me. This time, it’s because I am waiting for an order of supplies to come in… but I’m sure I’ll do just fine!!!

Hope everyone has a blessed week!!! :pray::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::sparkles:

It’s a Bank Holiday here today in England so we’re currently enjoying the sun outside prepping for a barbecue, which the stepkids will be cooking :grin:

Thank you @christina4! I didn’t think I was in the forum any more than normal last week, but apparently I was chatty. Thank you @TheTravelWitch for the shout out too!

We have Memorial day here in the states, but we just had rain for the last 3 days on Cape Cod. Hopefully there isn’t any today or very little. I would love to get outside & have a fire or barbeque. We’ll see what happens.

I have a meditation that I want to do, but I also want to find some music for it. I was thinking maybe some Woke Nation but I may change that idea. I’m not sure. I’ll figure it out in a little bit. My brain is sort of drawing a blank right now.

I hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy whatever comes your way!

For the meditation music, I recommend 8Fininty Angel Sleep Spells. It’s not just for sleep at all!! It helps you reach furthermore into the meditation itself.

The other channel I recommend is Sacred Mind Hearts :two_hearts:

And there’s my favorite, Theta Realms Brainwave State

And, Lastly another favorite is Sonic Elevator for the stronger waves

They’re all highly recommended channels that higher your brainwave state to help reach whatever it is you’re seeking in meditation, astral projection, lucid dreaming, etc. I listen to them daily/nightly.

Thank you! I will mark them all on my YouTube for listening. I’m sure one of them will be great for it. (I never used YouTube until I participated in the forum) :parrot: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Oh wow! I’ve started using YouTube for almost 6years or so. First, just for music. Then I found interesting videos and so on … eventually I fell down the rabbit hole of YouTube!!! :sweat_smile:

7 Likes

I have yet to fall down the rabbit hole, but I have heard about it! I’m still a new user when it comes to YouTube. When I first starting searching through it & going to videos that were posted here, the search history & some of the ones that were liked or subscribed to were from my daughter. She was young at the time so it’s like, toys, diy makeup & slime, & music. All kinds of things that a little girl would be interested in, it took me a while to clear it out :rofl: Now she has her own phone & Google sign in under FamilyLink. So I know what she is installing & looking at. I can lock her phone if I want to, she hates it, but I don’t need her getting into things that maybe she found because of her 19 or 22 year old brothers.

Oh my daughter is into the slime, unicorn poop :unicorn::poop: ASMR with a man dressed up like some weird character with tiny hands and big cheeks. It’s just weird. I have to find it for you, you’ll :joy:

5 Likes

Yes! The ASMR ones & I believe the Unicorn thing too. Along with Mermaids. Oh she’s such a girl. Lol

Yay @Siofra! Good on you for having both the most posts and hearts! That’s an accomplishment!

Can’t wait to see what goodies you get! I was a bad girl and ordered a new tarot deck. I hope it connects to me!

Sounds great! It’s Memorial Day here in the States which is a holiday too so everybody is taking time off it seems this week. Hope you have loads of fun!

It’s cleared up here today, the sun is shining even if it’s a bit cool. I hope it clears up for you, love!

As for me, I had a lovely weekend doing nothing and intend to follow through with that today. LOL. I got some research into Gaia done and have a list of books to put on my wish list so that’ll be fun! As I said I was bad and ordered The Wildwood Tarot which I’m hoping I can learn just as well as my Robin Wood tarot deck.

I have my last doctor’s appointment with the heart doctor this Thursday and I have a feeling I’ll sail through the meeting, no problems.

Other than that, I’ve not got much going on this week. I hope you all are having a good one!

Congratulations @Siofra on the well deserved double shout out :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@IrisW the weather has been so good here in the UK the last couple of days :heartpulse: I managed to get down to the river yesterday with some friends I haven’t seen for a while with our drums and ukeles and had a jamming session in the Sun :heartpulse:

@christina4 fellow youtube rabbit hole attendee here :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: i can’t remember the last time i watched a TV channel, its either youtube or prime :grinning:

@Amethyst i have been loving the Robin Wood tarot deck on my phone thank you so much for suggesting it :heartpulse: Im pretty sure ill end up buying the actual deck soon lol :heartpulse: I hope all goes well at your appointment :heartpulse:

National Doughnut day lands on my sisters birthday this year so she is definitely getting doughnuts as part of her present now :rofl:

I have the next two days off work so I’m going to be in the garden potting up the new plants I got, a hypericum shrub and a blackberry bush :heartpulse:

I hope everyone has an amazing week and welcome to all of the new members :heartpulse:

That sounds wonderful. I’ve only managed walking the dog and drinking wine in the back garden with a barbecue. But it having been sunny and warm here for a Bank Holiday is something of a miracle so I’m thankful :slightly_smiling_face:

6 Likes

Same, that’s probably the summer in Scotland done now :joy: it’ll be autumn “eve” for the next 3 months here now :joy: My grandparent’s house has a lovely garden so I’ve always came here to enjoy the Sun and now I live here so it will be a nostalgic summer for me :heart:

I’m glad you liked that app! It’s a nice deck, the card stock is a little thin but it shuffles well. Thanks for the good luck at my appointment!

I’ll have the next challenge ready and released in the forum tomorrow- so glad you’re excited, @Christina4- I hope you like the theme! :blush::heart: And thanks so much for the meditation links- those look awesome! :headphones: :two_hearts:

Looking gorgeous, @IrisW- sounds like a fun bbq! :star_struck: :wine_glass:

You’re very welcome @Siofra- it was a well deserved shout out, thanks for being so awesome! :raised_hands: I hope you had a lovely meditation as well :person_in_lotus_position:

Congrats on your new tarot deck, @Amethyst! :heart_eyes: I hope you love the Wildwood Tarot! :flower_playing_cards: :blush: Wishing you the best of luck with your heart doctor this week- may it go well for you!

Beautiful quote, @Carter! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

A birthday on donut day!?! Your sister is a lucky lady, @Liisa! :doughnut: :joy: Enjoy your days off from work and have fun in the garden- blessed be! :green_heart:

Thank you, everyone! It’s been a while since I had a double shout-out! I appreciate it very much! :heart:

I’m looking forward to the next challenge this week.

We got all of my crafting stuff downstairs into where my craft & “craft” room is going to be. The main floor of my house looks great now! We got to move the kitchen table & I actually think we are taking the leaf out of the center so it’s just a round table. It’s only 3 of us for dinner now, we don’t need seating for 6 anymore.

It was a great weekend despite the rain. Yesterday we were able to have a fire until my feet & ankles hurt from being on them for 3 days. It was a good day though.

Get it, @Siofra!! Well deserved, dear one.
