I just completed my Second Degree Ritual Robes exam and I got a 92%. I think that I might do the final exam next week. That is if I'm not that busy. That reminds me I have to schedule that in my phone. Yes, my cell phone is also an agenda.
And I haven't gotten any response for some suggestions as to a future ritual that I am wanting to do next year. I would like to do a Samhain ritual based on the Story of Isis and Orisis (However you spell his name). That story does fit as to what Samhain is all about. I am wondering if anybody has done something like this or done a ritual with an Egyptian theme to it. Besides this will be the second ritual that I have organized.
My first one was at Lugh. That was all about Animal Shamanism. I'm just thinking about what the Ritual class mentioned that a ritual should be done from the heart. I didn't memorize my lines, but when I opened the circle, I remember that my arms automatically shot upwards welcoming all the bird spirits (I was opening the East). And by the way, my main totem animal is not a bird, I did east because I know that there was a Taltos story (The Taltos where Hungarian Shamans, and both of my parents were born in Hungary. I was born in Canada.) that had to do with the Turul bird that represented Hungary.
I was going to go on with that story, but I wanted to focus little more on my very first ritual. I wanted all the animal kingdom to be represented. As I mentioned, birds where in the East, Reptiles and Amphibians where in the South, Water creatures were in the West, and land animals where in the North. And instead of the God and Goddess, it was Above and Below. The below was represented by burrowing animals and above was represented by all the flying insects (Yes, I wanted to include both burrowing and flying insects as well).
But that theme did not have anything to do with Lugh except that most of the animals were out and about during that time of year.
Now, my second ritual does have something to do with Samhain. So I am wondering if there is someone that knows the story of Isis and Orisis better than I do. I would like to present that as a play.
