Drifting away from hippiedom

Maybe I was never really one to begin with, maybe I was for a bit and it no longer fits, maybe I’m still one, idk. Lately I’ve found myself shifting more towards occultism, spiritualism, witchcraft and ceremonial magic, and my misanthropy/misandry gaining strength. What with the way the world is going and the lack of irl hippie friends it just feels more realistic while retaining my desire to rekindle the connection to magic and wonder that we all had as a kid.

Hello friends ! I need help making a specific flower child vibe playlist for work. I figured this would be the best place to ask 💜

I am looking for a specific sound to stick to for my playlist and am looking for maybe lesser known songs that fit the bill! Like dreamy psychedelic peaceful prancing through the fields type of music. If you need a reference of what I am looking for, I have songs like this on there already:

White Sun - Doobie Brothers Flying Cloud - Doobie Brothers Shambala - 3 dog night Strawberry fields forever - Beatles

And even new music like Little Things by Still Woozy is welcome as long as it really matches the vibe.

I would love to add a lot of lesser known songs if I can find them. Don’t really just want to add the biggest songs in the genre that every single person has heard a billion times if I can help it. I know I mentioned a Beatles song but am trying to mostly avoid that unless it’s very unknown.

I guess I’m always a little surprised by how difficult it is to find a lot of music that matches that exact feeling.

The place I work at is an alternative bar that is non alcoholic but has other fun things to make you feel good and need a perfect daytime playlist to go with it.

Thank yall for your input! 🌼🌸

The idea was to put the A.I. to work for us, and it is kind of working.

Screaming hippie music

Hi y’all! I am looking for recommendations for music. I have an interest in musicians from the 60s/70s who are in the hippie/peace/protest movement who have a screaming and emotive singing style.

My favorite examples of this would be David Crosby on “almost cut my hair” and Joe cocker…. Any song really, what an amazing performer and voice. I also LOVE Harry Nilsson when he started to get a little crazy hanging out with John Lennon, he began to really shred his voice and scream a lot more. Allman brothers “whipping post” is another one I love too!

Any recommendations specifically from this era would be amazing and so helpful, but if there is history that ties them to the peace movement or woodstock etc, that would be even better.

Thank you 💞☮️

''Bonfire at dusk'', This is a small oil painting that I made inspired by the end of the day when I was walking and could see the city lights in the distance, and I wish I had stayed there and made a bonfire, I hope you have a great weekend :)

seekin some sober hippies

ever since i was a kid i couldn’t wait to smoke weed & trip & drink, but after almost a decade of it i’m feeling pretty spun out. never felt like i had a real problem with anything until this year. recently my dad passed away & i found myself in a spiral for a good few months as summertime was setting in. i got into some harder stuff (uhh guess i could call it snow? idk if i can say the real word here) & almost killed myself with the amount of drinking and snow i was doing every day. if not for my boyfriend i may have very well gone down a darker path.

as i come out of my spiral i have a strong urge to get sober. i was wondering if anyone here has any experience starting out with that? i’ve never associated myself with the word “sobriety”.

How would one go about finding a specific commune?

I met the purest soul at a farmers market that told me something so enlightening that it changed my worldview. The problem is... we were so swept up in the moment no info was exchanged. They did however mention that they lived in a "nature-based community" which to me says... commune? I really want to talk to them again just to let them know that while I seemed standoffish at the time, this person's words were the most moving that I've had in nearly all my life. It's been a while but I'm wondering if anyone has ever been able to reconnect with a wandering soul?

45M, seeing dancing lights when looking at the sky with relaxed vision

This is a post I saw after seeing these dancing lights and I tried to research them. I found responding to it exhilarating and thought it would be interesting to see what some reactions were to such a benign piece of literature

34M, seeing dancing lights when looking at the sky with relaxed vision

FROM: r/eyetriage

FlashesView NSFW content

Hi. When I look into the sky and kind of relax my vision, I can see hundreds of little lights dancing around in spinning patterns. It feels like I'm seeing them with my peripheral vision. It's been like this since I was a kid but I just want to make sure it's not something that's going to cause me problems down the line if I don't get treated when I'm young.

Any idea what this is and what would I even say to an optometrist if I wanted to get an examination? I tried googling for this and the only thing I found was eye floaters and it's definitely not that. I've seen eye floaters similarly with relaxed vision looking at a solid background, like the sky. But it feels like the lights are on a different plane if that makes sense.

Does any of this sound concerning or it's probably nothing?


This is my response to the post. I'm putting this here because I thought that there might be a very small off chance that some, although probably very few of you, might find this mildy interesting, and if not, hopefully casually slightly humdrum

I began accessing this field of vision recently. At first I didn't see the dancing blue points of lights, I saw the round pearl-necklace like floaters. But If I adjust each eye a tad within the same field as the floaters, I can see the dancing lights!!! Watch for the interdimensional Lobster, we all got one. Its semi-transparent. Some of the "floaters" we see are the lobsters tendrils up against the eye. If I look up at the sky and spin I can see it. When I see the dancing lights I can see the Lobster moving. The Lobster's purpose is unclear.

So whats the connection? I do not know. I will say this, that the dancing lights are incredibly gorgeous and beautiful! They are part of you but it is as if they have a mind of their own!!! (And it is like they are in another dimension too!!!) Faries perhaps? The Machine Elves spinning Poi?! That is exactly what the blue lights look like, the lights look specifically like many people spinning POI !!! (Like at a music Festival hahaha!)

There is also another phenomenon where there is a streak of light. These are not just one-time phenomenon happening inside the eye. Its happening within the Astral layer
