east burn

I seriously miss my beautiful crispy boy so much! I honestly don’t know what I was expecting from Honest Hearts when I first played it, but it is still definitely one of my most favorite game DLC’s of all time!

I don’t even know how many years it’s been, but I’m still recovering from it not being canon to take him with me as a permanent companion. Graham, how could you hurt me?? D:

Magickal Use of Cinnamon

Planet: Mercury/Sun/Mars/Uranus

Element: Air/Fire

Folklore: First cultivated and used in the East, Cinnamon was burned to purify the temple. It also promotes health, vigor and libido.

Main magickal uses: Clairvoyance, consecration, divination, energy, good luck, love, money, passion, peace, prosperity, protection, psychic development, success Other magickal uses: communication, happiness, harmony, healing, inspiration, knowledge, meditation, purification, spirituality, tranquility, wisdom Lore: Paul Beyerl suggests that cinnamon be paired with tourmaline for best effect. Cinnamon is important as a purification incense in China. Do not use externally on the body, as it irritates the skin.


Protection
The sun is typically seen as representing male or active energy and since cinnamon is a sun-related ingredient it is thought to be useful in protection magic. For a simple cinnamon protection amulet, tie nine cinnamon sticks together and hang the bundle above your door to protect your home from from unwanted people and energies. Laying cinnamon sticks along your window sill will serve the same purpose.

Prosperity
Financial and personal prosperity are also related to the sun’s active energy. Cinnamon sticks combined with other “prosperity” ingredients such as whole cloves, ginger and orange sections can be used as a simmering potpourri to help boost your efforts in job hunting, getting a raise or making general improvements to your financial status.

Love
Because of its hot, fiery nature, cinnamon is a natural ally for love and sex magic. Try turning up the heat in your love life by grinding cinnamon sticks into a chunky powder and burning the powder as incense along with equal parts of red sandalwood and myrrh. Or simply place a stick of cinnamon under your lover’s pillow and see what happens.

Good afternoon❤️

Just hanging out in a junkyard in East Jesus, trying to stay peaceful before the race tonight. I loved seeing the beautiful and quirky art at and around Salvation Mountain! This is a must-do if you are ever in the Palm Springs area.

Thinking this will be my mantra while I’m running: “I am a wheel within a wheel”

Happy Saturday!

When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before. - Mirri Maz Duur, Game of Thrones.

I’ve always been of the belief that the maegi’s prophecy about Khal Drogo’s return wasn’t all literal or all that impossible. It’s always felt like at some point the prophecy’s at-first-glance-impossibilities would start coming true in some way, shape or form (they haven’t yet in book or show, but one can still hope!)

And I’ve always had my theories about what it could mean (if anything) and how it could play out - some parts slightly more coherent than others.

When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. - Dragon’s breath, burning from the west as Dany sacks her way through Westeros? At some point I think one of the major, defining battles will start at dawn, Dany and her dragons coming blazing from the west and finish the day in the east. 

When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves. - The first part of this to me could mean the complete freezing up of water bodies around Westeros. The second part though… Could mean ashes blowing across mountains, foreboding Dany’s arrival or the ashes of funeral pyres, or “mountains” could be a metaphor for the dragons themselves??? Dunno, still puzzling that one out.

When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. - This one’s probably the most literal part of the prophecy. Maybe when Dany finally finds someone she can truly love in some way (I don’t believe she’s ever loved anyone since Drogo or will ever love anyone the way she did him) and chooses and does have a family with, Drogo will finally return? Or maybe she just gets knocked up unexpectedly.

Either way, I’m probably wrong on all counts - as usual - and Mizzi Maz Duur made it impossible just to torture Dany, but seeing as how Cersei’s already seeing the maegi’s prophecy of her play out, why can’t Dany’s?

I’m curious to see what everyone else’s theories are. And seeing as how the series (both book and show) is filled with impossible realities who’s to say this won’t be fulfilled now that she’s back in Westeros?

Winter is here, anything is possible.

All of us on the east coast are burning in regret about staying up late but at the same time having no regrets at all. It's a fine line.

just down a few red bulls and stuff your face with sugar and you won’t have any more regrets because you won’t be able to feel how tired you are. …or your body at all….

How the last librarian of Mosul is preparing for when his city is free from Isis
Once a treasure trove of Unesco-registered rare books, the central library of the University of Mosul is now a blackened husk, full of ash. Less than a year after it captured the city in the summer of 2014, Isis all-but destroyed the building and burned its books. University professors and officials were forced to flee – but one man, Mosul’s librarian-in-exile, is still fighting for its survival.

The library of Mosul contained may rare books from all eras of the Near East.  Now it is burned and destroyed.  Many relics of history lost to destruction.  Now many are hoping to donate their books once Mosul is free.

~Hasmonean

Freya Beauchamp (1693)

Freya’s past incarnations on earth date back to the 17th century;

Now trapped on Earth after the Portal Closed, and with threat of her grandfather back in Asgard, Freya had no choice but to start a new life with her parents, her sister and her aunt. But due to the curse put on them by their grandfather, Freya and her sister Ingrid were bound to die before their thirties and to be reborn soon after, lives after lives.

The earliest date of Freya Beauchamp's existence dates back to 1692 Salem during the Salem witch trials. Ingrid and Freya were victims of execution without trial due to Vidar. Freya was accounted to be pulling a ‘fearless’ face before she was burnt at the stake opposed to her sister, Ingrid.

Freya would have to get used to hiding her magic from mortals, it was known as witchcraft to them. Although she had responsibilities Freya was usually dreamy and often wondered about earth, it was like a new home to her having lived in Asgard growing up.

Freya loved nature, romance and the moon which were strange things to like for girls in that century. Nobody dared go out at night due to the fear of the devil, and superstition. Freya was the feisty one always pushing the boundaries and going against the expected however she wasn’t reckless.

Freya was noted for her beauty for those that knew her, she had a reputation for her rebellious side. She was in a relationship with her star crossed lover (Killian) but not much is known about him, not even his name in the 1600s. 

From June through September of 1692, nineteen men and women, all having been convicted of witchcraft, were carted to Gallows Hill, a barren slope near Salem Village, for hanging but Freya and Ingrid burnt at the stake a year later after Vidar denounced them to the Puritans, thinking the sisters were reckless in their use of magic that endangered the secrecy of the witches.  

Freya’s 17th Century Witch powers were still the same as her powers she has in the present though, probably more advanced than 21st century Freya as 1693 Freya knew she was a witch since her Asgardian life before arrival on earth (since birth) so she’s had longer time to develop her powers:

  • Spell Casting
  • Potion Making
  • Telekinesis
  • Healing
  • Atmokinesis
  • Premonition
  • Precognitive Dreaming
  • Divination
  • Aura Reading
  • Advanced Intuition
