Pre~Class:

We all got to start somewhere! I have developed this crash course class to help the very new students be prepared for their formal education in level I classes. This is nothing worse than being totally lost before you begin, so if your placement screening determined you needed a little extra help welcome to this class.

 

This class is a prep-screening tool to determine where you, the applicant, would best fit in the Legion of Pagans curriculum. Should an applicant miss 10 or more questions, a 2 week crash course will be required prior to enrollment in the level I Basic Witch classes.

 

The tuition of $40.00 for this course will be applied to any of the Level I Progressive Class tuition upon successful completion.

Today's Totem Animal is the Chipmunk!

 

I have two very busy Mr & Mrs that have been very curious and friendly hanging around the homestead as we chop wood and water among other chores. They love to scurry in and out my garage.

CHIPMUNK

Work and Play


When Chipmunk appears in our lives, 
it is important to keep new projects protected and out of sight 
during the first 6-week period. 
A Chipmunk has a very complex burrow that offers protection 
for their young (new projects) with several exits and storage chambers.

Chipmunk also shows you how to store for a rainy day, 
protecting you for any future problems.

This totem can teach you how to read the voices of others. 
To know truth and lies in their voices. 
Trust what you hear in their voice rather than their actual words.

Chipmunk totem energy is also a sign that you will have an important conversation with someone close to you very soon, pay attention to the details! Chipmunk always pops up out of nowhere, and just as quickly it vanishes into another world, the world of the Chipmunk… it has hidden pathways and secret tunnels hidden in plain sight all around you. Chipmunk power animal loves the enjoyment of a good adventure and exploration, he is always exploring and noticing any new changes in his environment… a new fallen leaf, a new pebble, or a new visitor. Chipmunk will chatter to whomever is nearby telling them everything about the new discovery.

Chipmunk brings the gifts of: artistic endeavors and creativity

Chipmunk snares the energies of: play, exploration

Chipmunk the magic of: intuition, wishes granted

When the Chipmunk has appeared for you it is a most opportune time to ask for a wish. Like the Squirrel, Chipmunk symbol stores up his supplies for winter, always prepared… seeing him is a sign for you to do the same. Symbolic meaning of Chipmunk reminds you to make sure you have ample supplies of everything you need in case of an emergency.

Whenever you see a Chipmunk totem you can be sure that magic is afoot, synchronicity are in the air; keep your eyes open you may even glimpse a faerie. Fairies most assuredly are in the midst. Chipmunk and fairies appear encouraging you to believe in magic just like you did as a child.

The symbolic meaning of Chipmunk teaches the blessing that there are always spirit guides around you, ready to help; but you must invite the assistance of the spirits, and the instant you do you will feel the essence and energy of their presence and can begin communicating your requests. Again, this is the perfect time for you to ask your guides for signs.

Like squirrel, chipmunk embodies the quality of trustnChipmunks are very curious and take the time to explore everything that comes across their path. They are inquisitive, fearless and playful. They do what they want to do in their own time frame. They are quite vocal often drawing attention to themselves. Chipmunk medicine people will not tolerate being told what to do or when to do it. They appear to scamper to and fro always in a hurry to get somewhere. Starting in one direction, circling around and arriving back where they started from. There is no detail that goes unnoticed by the chipmunk as they circle around and see beyond the obvious.

Chipmunk teaches the art of observation and appropriate movement. Chipmunks have an air of independence and certainty about them. Their inquisitive nature leads them into unexplored territory and their detailed mind leaves no stone unturned. If chipmunk is your totem pay attention to how your energy is being used. Are you thoughts constructive or destructive? Are your fears keeping you from playing and enjoying life? Are you in charge of your life or have you given you authority over to another? Chipmunk is the messenger of many realms. If this is your totem you are on your way to self discovery.

Skinny Witch

Grapefruit is known as an antioxidant and also for its strong antibacterial properties. It’s rich in vitamin C, contain vitamins A, B, D, E, and calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper and iron.

The Magical drink of health and beauty [Magical Elixir For Weight Loss]
Ingredients:

 One large ripe grapefruit
 One tablespoon of honey

Cut the grapefruit in half, it’s preferable to be cold (from the fridge), and remove the pulp with a spoon. Put the pulp of grapefruit and honey in a blender and mix until the mixture becomes smooth.

This magical drink contains useful elements like:


Pectin, which contributes to efficient excretion of excess cholesterol (if you eat grapefruit every it day reduces bad cholesterol by 15.5 percent and triglycerides by 27 percent), it also reduces the level of insulin in the blood and stabilizes the  metabolism.

Lycopene, which helps in fighting toxins and harmful substances in the body.

A few sips of this drink, after lunch (wait 20 minutes after eating), is able to burn nearly half the calories gained during the meal.
The magic drink has healing effects on hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.
In addition, grapefruit contains a number of ingredients that help us fight cold and it is proven that prevents certain types of cancer and heart diseases.

 

Happy Birthday Isis!


In honor, here is some history and ritual.

***HISTORY***

Isis is the Goddess of many names and forms. She is the beautiful young princess and the grieving poverty stricken widow dressed in rags. She is the most powerful sorceress on Earth and She is the poor, frightened single mother forced to beg for herself and Her son. As the Mistress of Magick, She knows all and can do all. She can restore the dead, bestow the gift of fertility, heal the sick and protect sea farers. There is no miracle that She can’t perform. She taught women to grind corn, bake bread, spin flax, weave cloth, and, perhaps most importantly, she taught them to tame the men so the women could live with them!

Isis was introduced to Rome in 86 BCE, where She became very popular because Her cult was open to all, including women and slaves. She was so beloved by the people, that even after Paganism was abolished, Her last official temple on the Egyptian Island of Philae survived until 537 CE. It was finally ordered shut, votive statues of Isis, Osiris and Min were confiscated, and sent to Constantinople. Temple clergy were imprisoned, and the temple was converted to a Christian Church.

Isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as patroness of nature and magick. She was the friend of slaves, sinners and the downtrodden, and would also listen to the prayers of the wealthy. Isis became a symbol of Pharaoh’s power. Pharaoh was said to have been born of Isis, and the throne that he sat upon was provided for him by Isis. After Isis was assimilated with Hathor, she was sometimes depicted with the twin horns of a cow on Her head, with a solar disc between them.

Isis was the first daughter of Geb the Earth God and Nut the Sky Goddess. Because of Her parentage Isis could balance both heaven and earth. She married Her brother Osiris and as a Moon Goddess She gave birth to Horus, the God of the Sun. Together, mother and child created all life and sustained it.

Isis, the Mother of Life also has a contradictory aspect – She was also the Crone Goddess of death. That title comes from what happened with her brother/husband Osiris. Incest between brother and sister was allowable for the gods to keep the bloodlines pure. When Osiris became her husband, he became the first King of Earth. Set, their brother, was jealous and killed Osiris, sealed up his coffin and threw it in the river Nile. Isis grieved mightily, shredded her robes and chopped off her hair. Then she set out to find the body of her husband so she could bury him with proper honor and respect.

As she searched for her love, she met Queen Astarte in Phoenicia. Making a long story short, Astarte realized that Osiris’s body was hidden in her palace. Isis carried him back to Egypt and hid it in the swamps of the Nile delta while she prepared for his funeral. Her wicked brother, Set, found the coffin, furiously hacked Osiris’s body into 14 pieces, and scattered them in different directions. Searching and searching, Isis recovered thirteen of the pieces. Only his penis was missing, so she made one from gold and wax (some myths say mud or clay). Promptly inventing the rites of embalming, and with her magical powers in full force, Isis brought Osiris back to life and conceived their child Horus. Now that she was no longer grieving, Osiris was free to descend and became the King of the Underworld, ruling over the dead.

Isis is often shown wearing the symbol of an empty throne on her head, suggesting her husband’s absence and that she, herself, was the seat of the Pharaoh’s power. She carries the ankh, the Egyptian hieroglyph of eternal life. When in her funerary role, and as the protector of the dead, she is shown with wings. The ancient Egyptians believed that the Nile River flooded each year because of the tears Isis wept for her dead husband, and every year there was a ceremonial death-and-rebirth ritual.

When Christianity was trying to gain a foothold over paganism, the mother-and-child images of Isis and her son Horus in the many temples of Isis across the land were converted into images of Mary with her infant son Jesus, while images of Isis holding the body of her dead husband across her lap became Mary with the crucified Jesus.

Isis worship was revived in modern times by The Order of the Golden Dawn, who recognized Isis as a powerful Triple Goddess. Later She was incorporated into modern Wicca by Gerald Gardner.

Many contemporary Pagan traditions have adopted Isis as their patron Goddess and She is often found at the heart of Dianic Wiccan groups and other female-centered covens. Although modern Wiccan worship does not follow the same structure as the ancient Egyptian ceremonies that were once used to honor Isis, today's Isiac covens incorporate Egyptian lore and mythology into a Wiccan framework, bringing the knowledge and worship of Isis into a contemporary setting.

There are countless eclectic Wiccan groups throughout the world that have selected Isis as their deity. Because of the strength and power displayed by Isis, spiritual paths that honor her are popular and Her worship has seen a resurgence as part of the "Goddess-oriented" spirituality that has become a notable part of the New Age movement.

MANIFESTATION: Isis may take any form She chooses, some more common manifestations include a cow, swallow, beautiful queen, a pregnant woman, or a woman devastated by despair and grief.

OFFERINGS: Milk, honey, flowers, incense and candles.

***RITUAL***

This simple ritual can be performed by both men and women, and is designed to honor the feminine aspects of the universe as well as our female ancestors. If you have a particular deity you call upon, feel free to change names or attributes around where needed. Otherwise, you can use the all-encompassing name of "Goddess" in the rite.

Decorate your altar with symbols of femininity: cups, chalices, flowers, lunar objects, fish, and doves or swans. You'll also need the following items for this ritual:

A white candle
An offering of something that is important to you
A bowl of water
A handful of small pebbles or stones
If your tradition calls for you to cast a circle, do so now. Begin by standing in the goddess position, and saying:

I am (your name), and I stand before you,
goddesses of the sky and earth and sea,
I honor you, for your blood runs through my veins,
one woman, standing on the edge of the universe.
Tonight, I make an offering in Your names,
As my thanks for all you have given me.

Light the candle, and place your offering before it on the altar. The offering may be something tangible, such as bread or wine or flowers. It can also be something symbolic, such as a gift of your time or dedication. Whatever it is, it should be something from your heart. You may want to read up on Offerings to the Gods for some ideas.

Once you have made your offering, it is time to call upon the goddesses by name. Say:

I am (your name), and I stand before you,
Isis, Ishtar, Tiamat, Inanna, Shakti, Cybele.
Mothers of the ancient people,
guardians of those who walked the earth thousands of years ago,
I offer you this as a way of showing my gratitude.
Your strength has flowed within me,
your wisdom has given me knowledge,
your inspiration has given birth to harmony in my soul.

Now it is time to honor the women who have touched your life. For each one, place a pebble into the bowl of water. As you do so, say her name and how she has impacted you. You might say something like this:

I am (your name), and I stand before you,
to honor the sacred feminine that has touched my heart.
 

Continue until you have placed a pebble in the water for each of these women. Reserve one pebble for yourself. Finish by saying:

I am (your name), and I honor myself,
for my strength, my creativity, my knowledge, my inspiration,
and for all the other remarkable things that make me a woman.

Take a few minutes and reflect on the sacred feminine. What is it about being a woman that gives you joy? If you're a man performing this ritual, what is it about the women in your life that makes you love them? Meditate on the feminine energy of the universe for a while, and when you are ready, end the ritual.

Blessings,
~Elder Airwolf~

 

 

 

Educator Introduction

WELCOME TO PRE-CLASS

BY

ELDER AIRWOLF

 

Merry Meet and Welcome to “Pre-Class”!

 

First a bit about me, your instructor. I am a seventh generation Native American Shaman and Celtic Druid Wytch that I can recall. I was taught the craft from my elders at an early age knowing that my pagan path has been in the past lives and in future lives an educator of the craft. I have been in service to the Goddess Hecate from the beginning of my spirit birth hundreds of years ago. I have been teaching other pagans the craft for over 40 years. After retiring from the public sector as a clinical psychologist, I continued with counseling through my ministry that I developed in 2010; thus the Legion of Pagans Spiritual Ministry & Institution of Magickal Education. I have developed all the academic programs based on my education and training bringing forth a diverse cultural blend of traditions in hopes of bridging gaps of pagan differences for those we aim to teach and guide on their paths. For other personal qualification, please refer to my profile.

 

I developed this “Pre-Class” to help those very new to the craft get up to speed for their core courses. Each student will be tested and evaluated as to their strength and weaknesses of basic crafting during the two week crash course. We the educators of the Legion want you to succeed and have an enlightening experience in our classrooms and not struggle right from the beginning. I will be working to get you on track before you enter your standard class, so welcome and ask your questions so I can assist in showing you options for answers. Successful completion of this course will be applied to your core course.
