My mind is a battlefield.

21. Female. I'm a proud inhabitant of New Orleans, although raised in the Northern Great Lakes area. I enjoy intelligent conversations.

Can’t tell if my body feels tired and my mind feels awake or my mind feels tired and my body feels awake. Actually, I don’t really feel all that tired either way. I don’t know where all this excess energy is coming from but I should probably put it toward something other than tumblr.

I was hanging out with this Alchemist/Kabbalist/Chaos Mage at my bestie’s house last night and he started talking about how awesome/powerful/primordial/sexy The Morrigan is and after a short bit I could feel her being all like “Do tell me more, young magician.” and “I like this one. This one isn’t stupid” 

I fucking love this goddess.

Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.

Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

Cruachan - Celtica (Voice of the Morrigan)

These guys passed through (they didn’t play a show) New Orleans in this pat spring on their way to New York.  I met the bagpiper Duncan Knight, and  Gajus Stappen the frontman when they came into the goth/punk boutique I used to work at. Duncan was such a babe, but mostly it was his thick, sexy Scottish accent. 

He was looking at this black canvas millitary/marching band style jacket and I was like “Can I help you with anything?” and he said “I’m trying to figure out if this will work with my kilt.”

Me *swooning*:”You wear kilts?”

Him: “Yeah, I play the bagpipes in a Celtic rockband. I think this might look cool on stage.”

.Me (having sexy kilt fantasy, so brain has stopped working and flirting comes out): “You know what they say about kilts, right?”

Him: “What?”

Me (gone too far to stop now): “If a man wears his kilt to short he’s lying…*pause to see if he gets it*…you know, about what’s underneath. *immediately feels awkward*

Him (totally takes me talking about his dick in stride): “I wear my kilts pretty low…not that I’m making any promises.”

After that I quickly changed the subject back to music and never saw him again. Because I’m awkward as fuck. :/

New Development: Holy water hurts me.

I know this sounds like a crock of bullshit, but I wish I wasn’t being serious. My sister went to a church camp retreat with my cousin (purely for the experience, my sister is also pagan) and came back with a goodie bag. In this goodie bag, she received the…

Scientifically, I would look into the water that’s been used. Did they use spring or well water? It could be contaminated water.

They use salt for Holy Water, as well, but that really shouldn’t be an issue unless you are dealing with an open wound….

I have heard instances of some Holy Water being ‘electrically charged’, but I’m not sure how true that is or isn’t? 

Spiritually, Holy Water has been documented as being harmful to demonic entities. It can not kill a demon. Holy Water will merely burn or inflict physical pain upon contact. 

I say do some further research. Maybe, speak to your church about it. Get as much information as you can gather before you come to any further conclusions. :)

^^What she said.

The only time I’ve ever seen Holy Water affect a person the individual was dealing with a long-term demonic possession, and it was more of an aversion to Holy Water, a strong dislike of it touching their skin, not any kind of burning or rash on their physical body. If you were possessed, you probably wouldn’t be expressing concern over this, so my best guess is a sensitivity to a chemical or mineral that is in the water.
