Bram Stoker Dracula



 Bram Stoker Dracula

This is one of my most favorite romantic gothic Victorian Dracula movie/film.  Here are some quotes:


“The blood is the life!”

“No man knows till he experiences it, what it is like to feel his own life-blood drawn away into the woman he loves.”

“Yes, there is some one I love, though he has not told me yet that he even loves me.”

“The world seems full of good men, even if there are monsters in it.”

“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.”

“No one but a women can help a man when he is in trouble of the heart..."

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”

“Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!”

“The world seems full of good men, even if there are monsters in it.”
“Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose? That the luckiest man who walks on this earth is the one who finds… true love?”

“For life be, after all, only a waitin' for somethin' else than what we're doin'; and death be all that we can rightly depend on.”

Love Lyrics

Love Lyrics


These are some lyrics to three songs I really love and sung by female artists that are not well known, but have the most gorgeous beautiful voices.  The songs are filled with soul touching emotions and thought provoking lyrics.


Ministry of Love -  IO Echo

Locked
in a windowless room
with a permanent light

Caught
overrun by the thought
in the back of my mind

You
you asked me why
But you already know
Already know

When the lights go down I will bring you back to me

Because the sound of your heartbeat is the sound I believe
It's the rhythm of emotion forever taking me
Away away;
Away above:
This is our Ministry of Love

Tongue
of the well crafted words
and the double think mind

Choked
by the party smoke
All the petals turned white

You
You asked me why
But you already know
Only you know

When the lights go down I will bring you back to me

Because the sound of your heartbeat is the sound I believe
It's the rhythm of emotion forever taking me
Away away;
Away above:
This is our Ministry of Love

See Vid

Home - Above and Beyond

Here I come to find myself catch the tide
Looking for a peace at the end of the line
Sometimes I can't help myself, fever's high
I'm all at sea and so unwise

I'm so afraid I'll lose your love as times goes by
But courage is a fire and a beacon so bright
The sunset built a memory, our love sign
And all at sea we come alive

Will I wash away, turning like a stone?
I need a place where I belong
Call a setting sun to throw me down a rope
And take me to a place called home

I close my eyes, I know you're there, love of mine
Standing on the shore in a world I design
The sunset fires a lonely flare into the sky
And all at sea we say goodbye

Will I wash away, turning like a stone?
I need a place where I belong
Call a setting sun to throw me down a rope
And take me to a place called home

Looking for a place called home

Will I wash away, turning like a stone?
I need a place where I belong
Call a setting sun to throw me down a rope
And take me to a place called home

Moon - Sia

 I watch you spin from afar
 I drink you in and breath you out
 I'm camouflaged by the timeline
 I'm camouflaged when the sun shines

 Two ships passing in the night
 Two lips pressing ground the tides

 I believe the world it spins for you
 We will never be, I am the moon
 I believe the world it spins for you
 We will never be, I am the moon

 I long to be a part
 I isolate my heart
 You've drawn me into your world
 Now I too spin limbless

 One hand clapping, where's the wind
 I stand spanning at your distant wings

 I believe the world it spins for you
 We will never be, I am the moon
 I believe the world it spins for you
 We will never be, I am the moon
 I believe the world it spins for you
 We will never be, I am the moon

Johnny Guitar

Johnny Guitar


What an awesome film, Johnny Guitar is!  A 1954 movie/film starring Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden.  A western type drama, packed with action - two women that have a power struggle and jealousy going on, cowboys drinking whiskey, horses, gun fights, fires, hangings and the age old love story of a woman Vienna who has become hard as nails but has a soft spot for her heart and soul's yearning Johnny Guitar.  A classic film that can be seen over and over.  The song for the film was sung by Peggy Lee, here are the lyrics and a video that shows scenes of the movie.

Johnny Guitar
Songwriters: Peggy Lee / Victor Young

Play the guitar, play it again, my Johnny
Maybe you're cold but you're so warm inside
I was always a fool for my Johnny
For the one they call Johnny Guitar
Play it again, Johnny Guitar

What if you go, what if you stay, I love you
But if you're cruel, you can be kind, I know
There was never a man like my Johnny
Like the one they call Johnny Guitar

There was never a man like my Johnny
Like the one they call Johnny Guitar
Play it again, Johnny Guitar

Inspirational Love Quotes

 

 

Inspirational Love Quotes


“Sometimes the things that are felt the most are expressed between two souls over the distance and over time...where no words abide. And others may speak freely, live with one another freely, express themselves freely– just like everyone else, but then there is you... you have no words for proof of reassurance, no tokens of professed love, but you have something. Something worth keeping.”
C. JoyBell C., Saint Paul Trois Chateaux: 1948

“You can see the whole entire world in the eyes of a person who knows how to simply stand there and take all of it into him but then you can look into the eyes of someone else and the whole entire world goes away and all that's left is you.”
― C. JoyBell C., Saint Paul Trois Chateaux: 1948

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.... connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“Some people come and go and are forgotten. But there are other people who share a part in our destinies. They come, they go, but they are never forgotten. They come, they go, but even after they go... they're still here. They never really went anywhere.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“The mark of a real man, is a man who can allow himself to fall deeply in love with a woman. But the reason why a man is often heartbroken, is because a woman can become overcome by the reality that she has made a man out of a boy, because it's just such an overwhelming process, a beautiful and powerful evolution. Therefore, a man needs to fall in love with a woman who knows that men don't happen every day, and when a man does happen, that's a gift! A gift not always given, and one that shouldn't be thrown away so easily.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi

Quotes by Deepak Chopra

Quotes by Deepak Chopra


Ponder these quotes by Deepak Chopra.... These resonate with me.

“Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.”


“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.”  

“When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself.”  

“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined. ”  

“Love doesn't need reason. It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.”

“Don't try to steer the river.” 

“Each of us is here to discover our true selves; that essentially we
are spiritual beings who have taken manifestation in physical form;
that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences,
that we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences”  

“Separation may just be an illusion. When we feel love in any form, it has the effect of beginning to shatter that illusion.”  

“There are no accidents... there is only some purpose that we haven't yet understood.”  

“Each of us is a unique strand in the intricate web of life and here to make a contribution.”

The Ocean's Fury

The power of the ocean seen here hitting Bert's restaurant in Plymouth, MA.  This nor-easter hit the eastern coast in March.  Check out how the ocean pounds away at Plymouth Beach.  The restaurant is situated right by the ocean and took a beating.  Bert's restaurant remains closed last time I was by there.  They have worked on the beach to get it ready for beach season which is right around the corner!

Protection Spell

Labradorite Pentacle Cord Necklace
Available at Vamps Jewelry


Protection Charm

For this you will need a pentagram pendant and a bowl of salt water. Holding the pendant in your left hand and the bowl of salt water in your right, turn to the West. Slowly pour the water over the pendant as you speak the following charm:

elements of earth and sea
Return to all by power of thee.
That which may be sent to me
Unless I have summoned it to be.
I am protected from this night
By the spirits of power and might.

Wear the pentacle for protection on a daily basis. Once a month, at the dark of the moon, repeat the charm to keep your pentacle properly charged.


-----------------------------
Safe Haven Spell

 Home is a haven, a sanctuary. To keep our homes safe, sometimes we need to set up or reinforce our wards. Get out a small tray. On it, assemble a lit candle, some burning incense, and a dish of salt water. Decorate the tray with fresh flowers, crystals, or other talismans. This will be a portable altar. Carry the tray around each room of your home. Wave the incense, walking clockwise around each room, then carry the candle around the room. On your third circle around the room, sprinkle the salt water. As you walk, say:

 I bless my home with love and light. Only these may enter. I bless my home by the four elements, and make it a safe haven for me and my family.

Scented Flowers

Scented Flowers

A nice way to add a lovely scent to any room can be had by adding a few drops of essential oil or fragrance oil to silk and paper flowers.

All you need to do is place a drop of oil to an inconspicuous spot so not to stain the flowers.
You can also add essential oils to any porous materials like terra cotta pots, pebbles, sea shells, from the beach.

Oils I like to use are lavender, rose, vanilla, lily, geranium.  You can also try mixing several oils to create a unique scent!

Books on the History of Freemasonry - Dr. David Harrison





Books on the History of Freemasonry - Dr. David Harrison

Dr. David Harrison is a UK based Masonic historian who has so far written three books on the history of English Freemasonry and has contributed articles on the subject to various magazines which deal with the topic of Freemasonry around the world, such as the UK based Freemasonry Today, MQ Magazine, the Square, the US based Knight Templar Magazine, Philalethes and the Australian based New Dawn Magazine. Harrison has also appeared on TV and radio discussing his work.

Having gained his PhD from the University of Liverpool in 2008 which focused on the development of English Freemasonry, the thesis was subsequently published in March 2009 entitled The Genesis of Freemasonry by Lewis Masonic, and his second work entitled The Transformation of Freemasonry was published by Arima Publishing the following year. Both works received critical acclaim. His latest work on The Liverpool Masonic Rebellion and the Wigan Grand Lodge was published by Arima in 2012.

Witch Herbs

Witch Herbs


My favorites herbs are:

Sage- protection, cleansing, consecration, smudging, spiritual purification of home

Rosemary- purification, cleansing, protection, sleep

Basil- protection, love, wealth, fertility

Lavender- peace, joy, love, relaxation, calmness, strength, courage, well being

Rose- love, prophetic dreams, peace, calmness, protection, psychic awareness, divination

Mint- luck, money, travel, healing, headaches

Bay Leaves- psychic visions, dreams, repels negativity

Chamomile- purification, protection, sleep, meditation, love, prosperity

Catnip- friendship, love, joy, strength

Thyme- sleep, healing, purification, warding off negative energy, psychic energy

Dill- love charms, protection against evil spirits and bad dreams

Eye Color Meaning

EYE COLOR MEANING 




Brown eyes - Brown eyes are all about the Earth qualities of a person, including energy, fertility, endurance, creativity, lots of courage, and of course, grounding. And they are not much interested in material gains. They love nature, are spiritual and are very strong and even thick headed at times, very independent.

Black eyes - Oh mystery, sex, witchcraft, secrets, darkness (vampires anyone?). If you've read any romances and especially paranormal romances, you'll notice that all the heroes (and romantic vampires) have black eyes. They are all mysterious and all the attributes listed above can be easily given to each and one of them. They never tell much about themselves and they also are known to have psychic powers. (My eyes are this shade, the darkest brown/black)

Hazel eyes - They are again independent and courageous. They are extremely sensible and they are said to be empaths.

Blue eyes - Blue speaks about clairvoyant abilities (didn't we just say the black eyes are the psychic ones?), and can see the future and the past like Nostradamus or Edgar Caycee. They are also very observant of their surroundings. Blue speaks of the energy of the sky and water.

Green eyes - Would you be surprised if I told you that green eyes are all about the nature, healthy living, freshness? These people of all types are compassionate and they are spiritual in nature. They are our healers.

Gray eyes - These folks are also sensitive and have an inner strength that not many others possess. They have a deep wisdom and can change their mood to suit the current occasion.
